Curse of the Woke Conservatives

Thanks to the good folks at I Hate the Media for sharing this article from The Hill.  It’s by Kurt Schlichter and is a treatise on how we conservatives/libertarians are now “woke” to the shenanigans (e.g. outright lies) of Republicans that we elect.

Liberal Alters – Main-Stream Media

November 2008 was the liberal, main-stream media’s crowning glory as they were complicit in hoisting an unknown, untested, inexperienced person upon the American people.  The information about Obama’s past was out there, but was not covered in the lame-stream media who were too busy and too left-leaning to offer a balanced view of Senator Obama.  Ultimately it is the fault of the American voters who cast their ballots for Obama/Biden and relied on the media’s fairy tale about the first black president.  Not only was the press fawning over Obama, but they threw former favorite Hillary under the bus to support Barack and pushed very hard for Republican “maverick” John McCain to be the GOP nominee.  McCain was the candidate long before I even had the chance to cast my primary vote. 

Love Obama Style

As I sat this evening to try to catch up on the happenings of the day I, of course, went to Drudge (link on the right…scroll down a little…there it is).  I was attracted to the headline/link stating “Obama says stop the finger pointing.”  Even though I generally read every word printed that Oblama speaks, I admit to skipping.  I had heard some of his remark discussing the “spectacle” of oil executive having the nerve to defend themselves after being summoned to testify in Congress.

Earth Day Plus 40

Last year I wrote a three part series on Earth Day. Part 1 addressed my role working as a government employee in the environmental field while balancing my environmentalism with conservatism. In Part 2 I tackled some of the issues surrounding alternative energy and why the energy solution is not easy or cheap. I finished with Part 3 with a blast of the media and the misinformation that they spread as facts about the environment.

Flow – Go With It Lame Stream Media

It started as a relatively modest groundswell as average citizen awoke to the path politicians were forcing us down.  The groundswell was followed by a trickle as more folks got engaged and even the main stream media started to actually report rather than cheer on the Obama White House.

The groundswell and trickle has lead to a flow!

The first example is the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart.  Jon is a liberal stalwart who generally leans severely left while occasionally getting it “right.”  While the rest of the lame stream media ignored the Climategate scandal, Stewart made this broadcast.  This must have been a shock to Stewarts audience.  Ordinarily I would embed the video here, but it is no longer available on YouTube.  This link will take you to the clip. 

Update – True American Hero – Lord Christopher Monckton

Lord MoncktonUpdate – Lord Christopher Monckton has gotten some attention at least on Fox News and other balanced media outlets.  I am still impressed with his love of United States and his passion for pulling back the curtains to expose the man made global warming (AKA climate change) schemes.  Al Gore has still managed to avoid debating anyone of stature and most recently several liberals have suggested Sarah Palin as an adversary.  I love Sarah Palin, but she is not the person I want to put up against Gore. 

Audacity (aw – das – it – ee)

Audacity is defined as:

“Bold or insolent heedlessness of restraints, as of those imposed by prudence, propriety, or convention.  An act or instance of intrepidity or insolent heedlessness.”

Synonyms:  nerve, boldness, recklessness, rashness, intrepidity, dauntless, cheek, gall, presumption, chutzpah, impudence, effrontery

Can you use it in a sentence?

Some note the audacity of Barack Obama having written two autobiographies before he had really accomplished anything.  

Can you give me an example? 

Barack Obama writing TWO autobiographies before he had accomplished anything more than being elected to public office.
