Being a Gay Republican is Like Being a Black Klansman

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

The comedian Dave Chappelle did a very funny skit on his program where a blind black man became the most revered member of the Ku-Klux-Klan. Nobody knew that he was black because he wore a hood and he never knew he was black because he was blind. At the end of the skit he finds out that he is black and he subsequently divorces his wife because she is, in his own words, “ a nigger lover!”

 

I can not think of a better metaphor than Chappelle’s skit for the gay people who identify themselves as Republicans. The hood in the skit that prevented others from finding out that Chappelle’s character is black is just like the proverbial “closet” in which gay people hide from those who persecute them and from themselves. And the fact that Chappelle’s character was a leader in the most anti-black hate group on the planet, the Ku-Klux-Klan, represents the leadership in the politically masochistic organization known calling themselves Log Cabin Republicans!

The Log Cabin Republicans just concluded a conference during which they decided to continue to adhere to the core values of the Republican party. I suppose the theme of this convention was “thank you sir, may I have another!” There is nothing more difficulty for me to do than to support people that actively take part in their own abuse and let me tell you I can not think of anything more difficult to do than support the rights of the homosexuals who align themselves with the political enemies of homosexuals.

Let’s face it, Log Cabin Republicans are to the Republican party what the cheerleaders played by Will Ferrell & Cheri Oteri on Saturday Night Live were to the rest of the squad.

Being a gay Republican is like being a black Klansman or a Jewish Nazi. They should form a new party taking the good values of the Republican party and they should leave out the hate policies of the current party. But they should not be supporting their abusers.

Then again…I may be completely wrong about the Log Cabin Republicans. They may actually be the most powerful Republican organization around because it seems like a heck of a lot of their leaders are either suspiciously “connected” to out of the closet homosexuals or are eventually outted themselves! Can anyone say “Jeff Gannon”? Think about it!

Just a Quick Thank You to My Readers

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

I spend a great deal of time investigating and reporting about many depressing issues. Sometimes I get emotionally overwhelmed. At times I find it very difficult to continue my quest. There are surly times when I feel like my temper will get the best of me. It is usually during one of those emotional breakpoints when I fire off one of my angrier news letters or commentaries; the ones that usually result in significant un-subscriptions!

Then again there are moments, like this, when I become overwhelmed by the support that I receive from my readers. On an average day I will receive about 2000 e-mail messages. You can add another 1000 but I try not to count spam! Of those messages many of them contain kind complimentary messages (that really keep me going) or humbling requests to reprint my articles. I receive messages correcting my spelling or grammar…no surprise to me. I receive messages asking me for advice. I receive messages asking me to become involved with other organizations or individuals trying to make our world a better place. I also receive many messages telling me where to buy Viagra or that I have won some international lottery or that someone wants me to help them to move $millions into a bank account or that…oh, you mean that is spam too?

Of course I get slammed now and then; but thankfully not too often.

Oddly enough the humbling moment I am experiencing right now is not a result of any special compliment that I received. It is the result of perusing through my “submissions” e-mail box; the account set up for people to send us news and information for publication on our news page. For some reason I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people who have taken it upon themselves to help me by keeping me informed. These people have helped to make my job easier and they have helped to make TvNewsLIES.org become a pretty darn good place to visit if you want to stay informed about what is going on in the world. I still do a lot of manual research but I don’t think I would be able to maintain the consistent broad spectrum coverage without the many contributors. It is very humbling to know that people, many people, take the time to pass on vital information to a website that I started with the expectation that some day we may get 100 visitors per day. Now we get 100 e-mail or more per hour, to say nothing of the visitor volume! Very humbling indeed.

The list of contributors seems to grow as I am finding new “sent from” names all the time. But there are are a few dozen power contributors, you know who you are, who at this point could be considered official TvNewsLIES contributors! I just wanted to take today and thank you all, especially the regulars, for being a big part of what I am trying to do. You might be a falling  tree in the woods but I’m letting you know it is surely making some sound! Think about it!

Forget About Impeaching Bush; Just Have His Presidency Annulled!

Tuesday, May 8th, 2007

Do you remember the game called Twister? Do you remember that arrow that you would spin when it was your turn? Do you remember that the arrow would land on a color and you would have to put your hand or foot on a colored dot on a mat that matched the color? Well, the Bush/Cheney gang are so corrupt and are involved in so many scandals that we can make one of those little spinning arrow charts and use it to select one of the multiple reasons to impeach or incarcerate Bush, Cheney and members of their crime syndicate.

But I have an easier solution. While I personally favor criminal proceedings for the Bush cabal for a number of things ranging from conducting an electoral coup on our nation to complicity in the events of 9/11 (or at the very very least incompetence…but the evidence points to complicity), I think it would be easier to simply have the entire Bush presidency annulled! You see all you have to do is examine the evidence of election fraud that took place during the last two presidential elections and you will see that Bush was never elected. So we don’t really need to impeach him….we just have to inform him of the mistake and tell him to leave…immediately!

I don’t get it, this whole nation has their collective heads in buried in the sand. Reality is simply not part of the average American’s daily life. Bush was never elected to the presidency! Not once! Why do we keep pretending that he was? If you need proof of this you can check out the writings of Mark Crispin Miller who has put together the best documentation of this to date or you can read daily Bradblog.com.

Arrests have been made. People have been sent to prison for election fraud. Yet for some reason the American public can not connect the one dot that is required to understand that when people are convicted of election fraud, election fraud took place! And someone befitted by that election fraud! Hello….can anyone out there hear me? Bush and his cabal are enemies domestic. They invaded our nation and overthrew our government. They used nonviolent means to do so but they did so none the less. We are living under a coup. And the justice system, along with Congress are dominated by cronies and therefor the people of this nation are without protection from enemies and we are without a system where justice can be served. So to think justice in the form of an impeachment is realistic is foolish. Just ask Nancy Pelosi, she will confirm my opinion here.

So instead of waiting for cronies to police themselves and conduct impeachment or criminal hearings let’s just take a moment to step into the reality based world. We don’t need to impeach Bush because he is not the president. We simply have to enforce the laws of the land. He was not elected. Crimes were committed in order to make it appear that he was. Once Bush is out we can arrest Bush for impersonating a US president, trespassing, every kind of fraud imaginable, 9/11, etc. But until then we should simply tell him to to vacate the White House because he is not now and never has been the president! Think about it!

Queen Elizabeth, a Symbol of Inhumanity

Monday, May 7th, 2007

It baffles me that people are still enamored by royalty. Keeping the public thirst for Princess Dianna information was an industry! Queen Elizabeth’s visit to the US is considered a major event! What the heck does anyone care about these people of privilege for?

Royalty is a load of crap! It signifies nothing but a class system where some people are better than others simply because of their bloodline! Sorry, but I don’t buy it! Let me remind my fellow humans that at the other end of the social spectrum lie drones, slaves, meant to serve queens and royal families! The entire concept is vile to me. It makes me sick to watch a nation, my nation, treat with respect a royal family of a nation that we went to war with in order to get away from royal rule!

I know I am going to get hammered because of today’s commentary, but I just had to get this off of my chest. It has been bothering me for years and I just wanted to say it. I despise the concept of bloodline royalty and I am quite disturbed that my position on this is not more popular.

So next time you rush to read about a prince or princess, take a look in the mirror and understand that you are accepting your place as a drone! Think about it!

Pro-Life or Anti-Life; Which is it Mr. Bush?

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

Before I get to the point of today’s commentary I want to clear something up for the people of America and mostly for the criminals in the establishment media who help distort issues in favor of the people who control them. Nobody, and I repeat no human being who supports a woman’s right to have an abortion is “pro-abortion” or “anti-life”. So let’s stop the inappropriately applied description of “pro-life” for people who feel that women should not have the right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. The term that should be used and is more accurate is “anti-abortion” or “anti-woman’s-right-to-choose.” If you use the term “pro-life” it should be used to describe those who oppose people who believe in the right to hunt, support war or support the loosening of environmental regulations. So if you use that term, use it correctly!

As a personal disclaimer let me clarify something. I am disgusted with my fellow human beings’ trivial approach to parental responsibility. The rampant occurrences of unwanted pregnancies are unacceptable to me when we have so many ways of preventing them. I am not just speaking of unwanted pregnancies that are terminated, I am also talking about unwanted births by mothers who are in no position to responsibly care for a human being. Blame can be shared between the men and women who are responsible for this but let’s face it, women have just a little bit more control over the situation for the most part. I am sorry if you disagree with me but that is how I feel. Not only can a women use birth control but she can also demand that her partner use condoms. Couples can also partake in many satisfying sexual activities that do not necessarily come to a pregnancy risking conclusion. Use your imagination;-) That being said I do support a women’s right to choose but I believe more effort has to go towards preventing unwanted pregnancies and irresponsible births. Parenthood is a responsibility as much as it is a right so let’s practice both equally.

Idea: perhaps we can mix some kind of male contraceptive in every little blue Viagra pill! Just a thought.

Now as far as Mr. Bush goes…I am saying this…one can not claim to be pro-life while ordering death. If anyone takes the position that killing is wrong and that solutions to problems can under no circumstances result in a death of a human being, as anti-abortion activists such as George W. Bush do, then that same logic must be used across the board. If you choose to address a problem by killing people, like Bush did with Iraq, then you are not pro-life! Period, end of story.

George W. Bush has threatened to veto any pro-choice legislation that awaits his signature. He stands in front of the world and proclaims to be “pro-life” while the world counts daily the mounting deaths that have resulted from his actions. We need a word that is stronger than “hypocrisy” to describe this scenario! I won’t even bring up the fact that a record number of state executions occurred during his term as governor of Texas. Oops, I just brought it up. Silly me.

The fact is that George W. Bush is anti-abortion, not pro-life. I don’t know if anything in life is more obvious than this. Perhaps those in the establishment media might want to take notice of this! Think about it!

George Bush’s Assault on Women 

Would Somebody Finally Tell Me Why Cuba Is My Enemy? Ditto on Chavez!

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

While I was watching some Halliburton related Senate hearing I heard a Senator Sherrod Brown, a Democrat from Ohio, mention that Cuba was included in the Trading with the Enemies Act. This caused me to once again ask the obvious question that has never once in my lifetime been answered, not by a US politician and surely not by the US establishment media: why is Cuba my enemy? Sure, I have heard the dreaded “C” word, ‘communist“, but like the word itself nobody in the media has ever told me why communism is bad, why a country that chooses communism as an economic system is a threat to me or any American for that matter, or why the people of that nation should be made to suffer because they are not capitalists.

I hear the word “communist” used as an insult constantly, but I never heard anyone who uses that word explain why a communist should be considered an enemy of the United States forget an enemy of mine! I have never been threatened by a communist. The capitalist system on the other hand has scared the hell out of me. The IRS has harassed me about returns that they claim I did not send. I feared for my life for the three or so years that I went without health insurance. My credit card company started charging me $10 for paying my bill over the phone. I see veterans who risked their lives for our nation living on the streets in this country. I see people all over who can’t read, can’t do math, are absolutely clueless about what goes on in the world, and I am watching the cost of an education skyrocket to a point where only a very small percentage of the population in this nation will be able to afford an education; a rather pathetic development for a proud nation with any hope of a future. Yet for some reason I am told all the time that Cuba is my enemy! Why Cuba?

I can surely understand arguments against communist systems. I don’t necessarily think a communist system is good, nor do I think unregulated capitalism is good. The game of Monopoly represents unregulated capitalism and we all know that in Monopoly everyone looses except for the last survivor. That’s capitalism. Actually that is what George W. Bush means when he uses the code-speak term “freedom”. Bush is pushing for economic freedom, as in free of regulations. Free markets where the rich and the haves always win. He is not talking about freedom for you and me to live happy lives. Bush is talking about an “ownership society” but he does not mention who exactly will be owning society when he is done providing the “economic freedom” for the rich to finish life’s big game of Monopoly! In the meantime I am still trying to figure out how Cuba threatens me.

The other day I heard one of the establishment cronies, Democratic Senator Joe Biden, do his part in the mindfucking of our nation by throwing Venezuela into a comment about America’s enemies. Of course he did not provide a reason as to why Venezuela is our enemy. Joe was doing his part in sending out a subliminal message to anyone listening: “Venezuela bad, Venezuela bad!” Venezuela is the new Cuba in that we Americans are being told that they are our enemy every single day by the establishment and their foot soldiers in the media yet nobody will tell us why Venezuela is bad. They may tell us an out of context story about how Chavez insults George W. Bush but they never tell us what leads up to those events. They won’t tell us about how Chavez is taking his nation back from the global ruling elite, otherwise known as the international bankers. Nobody tells us that Chavez is a target because he took is nation out of debt. This is like pissing off the Godfather because you paid off the loan shark. You see Chavez no longer owes the Godfather anything anymore and that really pisses off the Godfather. The Godfather, in the case of Venezuela is the ruling elite and that is a fact. If the US backs a coup or an assassination in Venezuela you can bet the first thing that will happen is a loan will be made by the World Bank or the IMF so that they can “build” and “establish democracy” (otherwise known as economic free trade….you know…freedom;-).

Chavez is quietly becoming the world’s last hope in battling the ruling elite or the New World Order. You see he is empowering his people. As a matter of fact he is helping the South American continent to stand up to the exploitation of America and the international bankers who are in the process of setting up a one world government. Chavez has paid off Venezuela’s debts and has told the international bankers to get the hell out of his nation. He saved his people from the inextinguishable debt that causes a nation to relinquish it’s sovereignty to a private group of financiers. You know, the same way the Federal Reserve pretty much controls the US and how people like Bush are put in power in order to maintain or increase that debt so that the American taxpayer will forever fork over a huge chunk of their wealth just to pay the interest! That’s why wars are started; because wars are the most expensive endeavor a nation can undertake and that means more debt and more money owed to the bankers. Bush & Cheney are insiders. They are in like kids I grew up with who used to drive around with a bb gun popping out car windows because their father owned an auto glass store in the neighborhood! Only they don’t break windows, they start wars! They forced America into an endless war; the ultimate jackpot for the bankers!

The formula: take one “New Pearl Harbor” (and if one does not happen on it’s own create your own!) This will create fear. Part one is essential for without it the rest of the plan is dead. So above all, no matter what happens, you must ensure that the initial “catastrophic and catalyzing event” takes place. Next get the scared people to pay up by telling them that you need the money to protect them. Scared people will give anything to be safe; money, freedom, anything; this has been proven over and over throughout history. Then start a war that creates more enemies, that you will have to protect those same frightened people from! Then ask for more money and ask people to relinquish more rights so that you can protect them! What a brilliant business plan!

Now you have to pay for your protection FOREVER! That’s right, your taxes go towards paying a private bank (the Federal Reserve) interest on all of the loans taken out for the costs of protecting you, by an intentionally financially irresponsible (or complicit) Congress and/or president even though the US has the sole Constitutional authority to print money (and the Federal Reserve DOES NOT) and the US can lend itself money at absolutely no interest…if it so pleased! Friends, this is what started the American Revolution! Taxation without representation! America was started to get away from the Bank of England, another private bank that held the UK hostage, as does the Federal Reserve with America!

So getting back to my initial point…I’ll tell you who is my enemy, anyone that tries to tell me that Venezuela or Cuba is my enemy and does not follow that comment up with a clear and complete explanation as to why that is the case. Joe Biden is more of an enemy to me that Chavez and that is a fact!

So I ask you once again…why the hell am I supposed to consider Cuba and Venezuela my enemies when, as you can see from reading my rant, there are plenty of American enemies for me to really fear. And let me tell you this, America has no enemy greater than the establishment media for it is their cloak of secrecy that permit those other enemies domestic to assault our democracy, our freedom and our word! Think about it!

Then, get your information from TvNewsLIES, not the corporate entertainment networks.

CNN is Making me Dizzy Today

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

There used to be a pitcher on the New York Mets named Doug Sisk. When Sisk first joined the Mets he threw an incredible sinker pitch that people simply could not hit. Batters could hardly hit his pitches past the infield. He gave up among the fewest home runs per inning pitched in the league. But there was one problem with his pitch, it moved a lot and therefore he had trouble keeping it in the strike zone. So batters learned not to swing and Sisk started to have problems loading the basses by walking batters. The Met fans started to boo Sisk relentlessly. The booing became such a problem that the manager would try not to use Sisk while the team was playing at home so that the home crowd would not be able to boo him. At one point the joke was that the hardest job in the world was being Doug Sisk and pitching at Shea. I even heard someone say something about putting Sisk’s uniform on and taking the mound being a test of bravery! (Actually I was a big Doug Sisk fan and I took a lot of heat for it!)

That being said I have to say that today there is a job that is much more difficult than pitching at Shea Stadium in a Doug Sisk uniform…and that job is occupied by many people! What’s the job you ask…it is being a television news reader on CNN! What’s so hard about that you ask? I’ll tell you. I think the most difficult task in the world for a human being is to come out on TV every single day and keep a straight face as you report the pathetically un-newsworthy issues, in depth, one after another as you try and pretend that you are a journalist partaking in journalism!

Of course CNN is not the only organization to hire such skilled employees. MSNBC has the most skilled reporters and wins the top spot simply by sheer volume when it comes to treating issues like Anna Nicole Smith as if it was vital news worthy of lengthy panel discussions. And FOX News, well let’s just say they have an even more difficult job because on top of all the pretending they have to appear as if they are not biased! Ha ha ha, that’s funny; and they keep straight faces! Amazing!

Today the CNN crew did a great job because they had some really tough transitions to work through. You see I watched one top of the hour headline segments and one segment on the upcoming stories for the next hour and during both of these segments the AM CNN team did a marvelous job keeping from laughing. This was not easy because the first segment contained two headlines; one being the Iraq War and the other being Brittney Spears return to the stage, and the second segment contained two issues where one was the Iraq war and the other was about paying for you wedding when you get jilted at the alter. In between these two tough transitions they held a serious discussion on a new report that shows that left handed women have shorter life spans than right handed women. There was no real news during this session but the three on air clowns chatted and speculated about this bombshell issue for w a while. So you can add improvisation to their skill set! Comedy Central has nothing on these people!

I would be shirking my responsibilities as a media analyst if I neglected to give CBS News some credit for their straight faced tradition of reporting three headlines during a commercial break every Sunday night during 60 Minutes. You see every single week during 60 minutes a newscaster comes on and reports three headlines and every single week one of the headlines is about the movie box office returns for that weekend. The box office returns for some reason are reported during every single Sunday night airing of 60 Minutes and every single Monday, to the general public, on most “news” programs. I can only imagine that the only thought in the head of the person reporting such news is “does anybody notice how stupid it is that we report this random industry statistic every week?” But then again I do not think many thoughts actually go through the heads of these people.

So I think that the men and women of the TV news industry are either performing one of the most difficult tasks on the planet or their brain function is so low that they don’t even see the humor in what they are doing. Hmmm…now that I mention that…uh…I guess you can forget about all the praise I just cast on these people. So…um…never mind. Think about it!
