Modern Media Reporters Redefine American Heros

0603-bruce-caitlyn-jenner-getty-vanity-fair-7

Meet America’s newest national hero, Bruce (Caitlin) Jenner.  Jenner is a true hero, at least according to the newest media darlings.  I guess this is because he finally figured out that he was not really a boy, but actually a girl.  Luckily, being a member of the Kardashian Clan, she had enough money to feminize her new looks and augment her breasts. Or this whole thing could have been pretty ugly

Personally, I think a lot of liberal women actually do not like men.  They want girls with penises;  you know … the whole metro-sexual thing!  Anyway, As I understand it, Caitlin is keeping her penis.  This is probably a smart move … just in case she later decides she is really a boy again and needs to change back.  This is a real possibility should the Kardashian Clan need a new publicity stunt to bolster their sagging revenue streams.   I am not sure penis re-attachment surgery is available yet, but maybe if she kept it on ice?  It is probably is a much safer bet just to keep it attached for now.

All joking aside, I am really happy for Caitlin (formally known as Bruce) Jenner.  If he is happier as a she, who the heck am I to say he can’t be a she.  As a conservative and a true believer in individual rights … more power to him or her.  I am just not really buying into the great American hero spin being trumpeted by the media. So ESPN awarded Caitlin Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. So what?  It doesn’t really mean a thing.  Anyone can create an award and give it to whomever they damn well please.  I do think it is about as silly as Barack Obama getting awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for things they hoped he would do in the future.  We see how well that all worked out.

On another note, last Thursday, former Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his 2016 candidacy for president.

Standing with Rick Perry during his announcement were two other men.  U.S. Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, of “Lone Survivor” fame, and his twin brother, Morgan. The Luttrells, who are from Texas, have gotten close to Perry over the years and Marcus is known to have a close, almost father-son, type of relationship with Perry.

It is a real case-in-point that the media representatives present did not recognize the two men standing behind Perry. How is that even possible?  It is a real commentary on the current state of journalism, or lack there of, in this country.  They certainly rushed to recognize what a great hero Caitlin Jenner is and I bet they could pick her out of any crowd.   O.K.,  So maybe they might not know who Morgan Luttrell is, but Marcus Luttrell?  Are you kidding me?  Four clueless left-wing journalists revealed via their tweets that they had absolutely no idea who Marcus Luttrell was.

1) Ellen Mitchell.  This is particularly scary to me because she is a Washington-based reporter for Inside Defense, covering Army helicopters, UAS, radios, vehicles and TRADOC.

2) Katie Halper.  Another scary one because she is a history teacher at The Dalton School; besides being a progressive, comedian / blogger at Salon, The Nation, Feministing & Comedy Central.

3) Judd Legum.  Is Editor in Chief for ThinkProgress and the Senior Vice President for Communications at American Progress so it is not surprising that he would not recognize a real hero.

4) George Zornick.  Prior to joining The Nation, George was Senior Reporter/Blogger for ThinkProgress.org. He worked as a researcher for Michael Moore’s SiCKO and as an Associate Producer on “The Media Project” on the Independent Film Channel.

Army Ranger Specialist Zac Oja had this to say:

 The priorities in this country are so screwed up as it is. A transgender person like Bruce Jenner is a hero. But someone sacrifices their college scholarship and their time to join the military and they don’t get nearly as much recognition.

We’re missing the overall point of what this country was founded upon, collective sacrifice for the greater good. The fantasy of America is what we focus on. Caitlyn Jenner, a multimillionaire and the Kardashians are the ones shaping our reality. What happened to the soldier who deployed his 12th tour in Afghanistan, that’s my definition of a real hero.

The usual hero is a day-to-day person, who does it out of a sense of purpose. They don’t do it for Instagram likes or retweets. I’m not surprised they don’t know who Luttrell is, our priorities are so messed up in this country.

Those reporters represent a smaller portion of America that is more engaged in what sells than anything else. And a Navy SEAL war hero doesn’t sell so well anymore. For them to not know who Luttrell is a perfect snapshot of what the country’s greater priorities are. Because I guarantee if Perry had the Kardashians standing next to him, everyone would be able to identify those people.

I think Army Ranger Zac Oja pretty much sums it up!

Obama: Anti-American Hero

As the month of November draws closer, it is time for real Americans to take a serious look at what we actually “know” about Barack Hussein Obama, the democrat’s choice candidate for the U.S. Presidency. When you get past all his smiling and catchy cliches, what are his actual plans for changing our country’s future. They can be summed up as follows:

  • Hug Your Enemies
  • Blame America First
  • Cut Defense
  • Raise Taxes
  • Penalize The Oil Companies

Will somebody please explain to me how raising taxes on oil companies is going to lower the price of gasoline … and how not drilling for oil is going to somehow increase our oil supply?

Though these planks in the Obama platform of change are sure to please the rabid anti-American left-wing liberals, they do not bode well for the future and security of our country …. unless, of course, you do want to see our country “changed” into a socialist nanny-state with George Soros and his fan club firmly in charge.

This, in truth, is the “change” Barack Obama is really talking about. Real Americans should be very, very concerned and should work diligently to see that Barack Obama is not elected in 2008.

It is really scary folks, that we, as a country, can even consider Barack Obama as a viable candidate for president, when he shows such lack of judgment and understanding of the world, and seems to admire and respect people like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

You cannot tell me … at least not with a straight face … that it took Obama twenty years of sitting in a pew in that church to finally figure out he disagreed with Rev. Wright’s anti-American, black liberation, pro-terrorism message. If it did, in fact, take him twenty years .… we certainly should not elect him simply on that basis.

Lets take a look at some of his key supporters and advisors ….

One advisor, Richard Danzig, resorted to quotations from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh when speaking at a luncheon; as an outside-the-box effort to criticize the Bush administration’s policies in Iraq. During his speech, Danzig read the famous open lines from the book:

“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming down the stairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping a minute and think about it.”

Look how clever Danzig is! I mean really … if President Bush had only stopped to think … there might be another way to protect our nation from terrorists …. rather than staying the course in Iraq …. or detaining terrorists without habeas corpus at home. Isn’t President Bush just like Edward Bear?

And sadly, at least on paper, Richard Danzig is no dummy! He holds a law degree from Yale and a Ph.D. from Oxford. He was a Supreme Court law clerk and served as President Clinton’s secretary of the Navy from November 1998 to the end of that administration.

Dispite his impressive resume, he seems blissfully unaware that, outside of Afghanistan and Iraq, al Qaeda has been unable to launch successful attacks on Americans since 9/11. Hmmmm … could it possible be that …. horror of horrors …. just perhaps … George W Bush has been doing something right?

Oh yeah! I almost forgot …. Danzig was also secretary of the Navy at the time that the U.S.S. Cole was attacked by al Qaeda resulting in 17 sailors killed and 39 more wounded. Danzig saw first hand just how ineffective our justice system was at prosecuting the war on terror at that time … yet he still makes foolish statements like “I have confidence that our system of justice is strong enough to deal with terrorists.”

Danzig seems, at least to me, to be a genuine space cowboy … making statements such as that … and blindly ignoring the dismal failure of Spain to successfully prosecute the terrorists involved in the Madrid train bombings … despite the fact the Spain’s justice system is much more prosecutorally friendly than ours is.

I would like to add that, in order to use this classic text on National Security, subtley disguised as a children’s book called Winnie-the Pooh, to make his point; Richard Danzig conveniently left off the last line of the passage:

“And then he feels that perhaps there isn’t [another way].”

And who are some of Obama’s supporters? Here is a short list of the whos who in Obama’s radical anti-American and left-wing support groups:

Alan Haber, the first president of Students for a Democratic Society, a left-wing student activist group first founded in 1960.

Jodie Evans, who co-founded the anti-American group Code Pink, said Osama bin Laden had ‘valid arguments’ for the 9/11 attacks, gushed over Venezualan dictator Hugo Chavez and bragged about Code Pink’s efforts to undermine the war in Iraq in a wide-ranging interview with radio host Paul A. Ibbetson.

Tom Hayden, another founding member of Students for a Democratic Society, is a former husband of Jane Fonda and in fact, went to Vietnam with Jane Fonda shortly before their marriage. He was arrested in 1968 as a member of the Chicago Seven (with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Ruin) for inciting riots. In January of 2008, Hayden wrote an oped piece for the Huffington post supporting Barack Obama.

William Ayers, terrorist leader and founding-member of a split-off group from the Students for a Democratic Society that became known as the Weatherman (AKA Weather Underground), who planned and carried out bomb attacks on police facilities, the Pentagon, and the US Capitol in the 1970s and who, with his wife … Bernadine Dohrn, are now the darlings of California’s liberal left-wing elites. Characterizing Weatherman as “an American Red Army,” Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows:

“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.”

Bernardine Dohrn, William Ayers’ wife, hosted meetings at their Chicago home to introduce Barack Obama to their neighbors during his first run for the Illinois Senate. In 1999 Ayers joined the Woods Fund of Chicago, where he served as a director alongside Barack Obama until the latter left the Woods board in December 2002.

Michael Klonsky, whose disgust for mainstream politics led him to launch a new, Maoist Communist Party in the 1970s, today supports Barack Obama so enthusiastically that until recently he was blogging on the Illinois senator’s campaign website.

I even read somewhere a few days ago that Hamas and Raul Castro support Obama’s campaign for President of the United States. What more would any freedom loving, patriotic American need than that!
