The Silence of the Obama media – Tea Party Nation
February 21, 2012 3 Comments
f you have any doubt the mainstream media is in the tank for Obama, even Fox News, then let it be dispelled quickly.
There is a story that could destroy Obama’s reelection campaign. It is not being offered on the mainstream media.
What is this story and how do we know it would destroy Obama?
Right now in Egypt, there are 19 Americans being held hostage. One of them is the son of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. The 19 Americans are all workers fro NGOs or Non-Governmental Organizations.
The Egyptian government is now preparing show trials for these 19 Americans. This should be headline news. 19 Americans, including the son of an American cabinet secretary are being held hostage in Egypt. Yet there is nothing from the drive by media.
Do a Google search for “Egyptian hostage crisis.” Nothing comes up from any of the major media.
There are many of us who remember 1979. The facts are eerily similar. In 1979, America’s second worst President in history encouraged a revolt against the Shah of Iran. The Shah had many faults and his secret police were notorious for being vicious in their actions against opponents of the Shah.
But the Shah was pro-American.
Carter pressured the Shah to let the Ayatollah Khomeini return from exile and eventually pressured him to step down from power. Iran turned into an Islamic republic, which to this day threatens America.
On November 4, 1979, Iranian “students” overran the American Embassy in Teheran and took our Embassy workers hostage for 444 days.
Carter’s bungling of the Iranian hostage crisis is viewed as one of the primary reasons Ronald Reagan soundly defeated Carter in 1980.
Today, Obama sits on the edge of defeat. The economy, much like in 1980 is cratering. Unemployment is at very high levels and about to go higher. Gas prices have spiked creating pain at the pumps.
Now Obama faces his own hostage crisis.
The media is being silent on this crisis, because it is the one thing that could put a nail in his reelection efforts.
The real news here is that under Obama, as it was under Carter, no one fears America. What ever else you want to say about George W. Bush, does anyone believe the Egyptians would have tried this with Bush?
For some of the news agencies, it is not really shocking. MSNBC might as well put the Obama reelection logo up right next to their logo.
But Fox News we generally think better of.
The real moral of this story is we need a true conservative network that will compete with ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox. Five of the six are in the tank for the left. Fox at one point was actually a somewhat conservative network but no longer.
Meanwhile, we conservatives need to remind the rest of America. There is a hostage crisis. 19 Americans are being held hostage in Egypt and this is Obama’s hostage crisis.
He needs to pay the same price for this crisis that Jimmy Carter paid for his.
