From Rathergate to Obamagate Media finally Elects President

John Ziegler

Former News Anchor Dan Rather of the CBS News attempted to single-handedly affect the 2004 presidential elections two months before elections by reporting that six forged and falsified documents proved that President Bush’s Air National Guard service was bogus therefore making President Bush claim of military service illegitimate. Such a scandal would have thrown the 2004 election into Sen. John Kerry’s favor at least that is what Rather was hoping for.

Four of these document where presented on CBS 60 minutes as authentic however it was soon discovered that Rather and his anti-Bush assistant and associate Mary Mapes all too willingly participated in an fraudulent smear campaign initiated by Lt. Col. Bill Burkett.

Burkett claimed to have burned the originals after faxing copies to CBS. Burkett was retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the Texas Army National Guard (see Rathergate)

Rather did not vet these documents or Burkett’s story before he broadcasted this smear to millions of viewers on his primetime Sunday night show. Up until now this was perhaps the single most blatant attempt by modern media to affect the outcome of a U.S. election.

Rathergate however was only the beginning. Former radio talk show host John Ziegler commissioned the Zogby Poll attempting to discover the media’s affect on this 2008 election. He is set to present his finding in an upcoming documentary "Media Malpractice... How Obama Got Elected". (see Zogby Poll)

What Ziegler details is a Main Stream Media pro-Obama campaign to negate the candidacy of Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin while virtually establishing themselves as a campaign arm of the Obama campaign. (How Obama got Elected)

MSM did this by selectively informing and misinforming the electorate concerning the candidates. And in President elect Obama's case the MSM completely blacked out any and all negative reporting that would have help voters make an informed vote. (see video 5:15mins)

In the most important election of our generation, it is frightening to see that millions of people went to the polls and cast ballots based on misperceptions that they received largely from the media.

When the media actively engages in politicking for one Party over the other we then no longer have the constitutional 4th estate that media was constitutionally protected to be.

What we have is Media corruption and another failed American institution. (see 9:55mins video presentation)

Finally Chris Matthews of MSNBC Hardball thinks that it is his job in the media to make Barack Obama's Presidency sucessful.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that --

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!

MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.

Matthews wasn't done with his odd new job description . . . An incredulous Scarborough kept pressing, astonished at such a complete 180 from Matthews's repeated insistence during the Bush presidency that he had to hold the government accountable.

SCARBOROUGH: Your job is the make this presidency work?

MATTHEWS: To make this work successfully. This country needs a successful presidency.

I suppose this explains the tingle Matthews gets up his leg when he thinks of Obama!

    Guess what Obamanomics is going to be like?

    It has something to do with M3, those Subprime Loans that got bundled up as Securities that were defaulted upon, Money that was expected to reenter the Economy as debts were expected to be paid off. With that Money going "poof!", that means that the Money Supply has contracted.

    What happens when the Money Supply contract? Prices go Down! Sounds like Good News, RIGHT?

    Not exactly. It means that the Economy must go through a perioud of adjustment in order t renormalize price equilibriums. Wages and prices go down. Prices go down because people sit on their cash, waiting for prices to go down. nsold items mean that inventories build up until the inventories have to be sold off at lower prices. Further, since the stockpile of goods means that it is no longer urgent to replace sold goods, the labor to produce the goods is no longer needed. Furloghs, Layoffs, and Wage Cuts happen.

    This is what happened with the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover started it by raising taxes during a Recession. FDR kept it going to favor the Labor Unions as an unelected quasi-self-appointed branch of government.

    I truly expect Obama to be a Second FDR. Hipefully, he will be a short-term FDR. Clinton was bailed out by Republican Economic Policy in 1995, after his 1994 Disaster. Lets just hope that 2010-2011 repeats 1994-1995.

    Meanwhile, I hope that the GOP gets at least one more Senator to keep their Fillibuster Power intact.
