My local newspaper The Daily Insult, actually the Daily Independent, is your typical modern chain-owned liberal newspaper. It’s owned by a Canadian corporation and they’re especially insulting because they pretend they’re not liberal. Today they had two especially annoying articles that they plastered on the front page. You can always tell if an article helps Democrats or not: Is it prominently displayed? Is it downplayed or totally ignored? If displayed prominently, it helps Dems.
The first article is a front page article that also garnered multiple across-the-paper back page prominence and concerned yet another lawsuit by Appalachian Voices and presumably KFTC [Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, an uber liberal organization formed by a University of Chicago social worker who’s moved on to community organizing in Va] against a coal company. The voters of KY reelected coal-supporting Mitch McConnell but as Obama used to say, hey, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. Of course, Obama also told the GOP that if you don’t like his policies then go win an election but he was obviously lying about that. Greenie organizations receive national and international money and training from lefty/green groups and foundations then join up with the EPA, often using taxpayer money, to sue fossil fuel companies or manufacturers and kill development and jobs, especially in Eastern Kentucky. They’re self-righteous about it all; personally I believe there’s an unspoken goal to turn most of Eastern KY into a big national park/forest and stop all mining, logging, development, etc and force us into cities, a la Agenda 21. I’m betting that after a while the US government will allow limited development and mining to the likes of George Soros, who would have snapped up bankrupt companies here for a song.
Hey, it’s not paranoia or conspiracy theory when you keep being right.
The paper also had front page articles about how helpful ObamaCare has been to Eastern Kentucky, singing up people left and right, and saving the newly insured so much money while creating some jobs. We can thank Dem Gov Steve Beshear, who I predict will enjoy a future in some Dem consulting/lobby firm. Too bad the newly registered are mostly Medicaid and the subsidies are paid by we taxpayers without any option on our part. No mention on how KY, like other states, will be forced to pay for all these new Medicaid enrollees in 2017. No word on the fact that Beshear will no longer be governor as of January, 2017 or that the state has experienced budget shortfalls since the 2008 recession or that we’re facing a disaster of baby boomer state employees retiring in a grossly-underfunded pension system. No explanation on why our health care system had to be destroyed or 15-20% of our national economy turned upside down just to enroll new people in a Medicaid program we already had or why the Dems lied about those of us already with insurance saving money and tax? what tax? you stupid voters.
Yeh, no word at all this week on the lies of the Obama administration on the ObamaCare bill or GruberGate. Sometimes what a newspaper doesn’t say is as important as what is does. Sins of omission. http://www.dailyindependent.com
Of course, it’s not just a local problem. There’s nothing unusual about fluctuating animal populations, including humans, but greenies used a temporary polar bear population drop to raise money and spread global warming panic. It’s not about the climate, it’s about money $$ and political power. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/11/19/newspapers-mislead-public-about-polar-bear-numbers/
Putting a phony green agenda before jobs and the economy is giving us a slow economy, fewer jobs, fewer full-time jobs, fewer well-paid jobs, a nation that can no longer get anything made or done, and a dwindling middle class. Welcome to Eastern Kentucky, Colorado, Utah and New England coastal towns! http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/11/13/gop-listing-of-grouse-as-threatened-endangers-private-property-rights-jobs/ and http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/12/noaa-puts-ban-on-cod-fishing-hurts-family-businesses-and-coastal-communities/?intcmp=trending
