I have been calling America’s Mainstream Media the Fifth Column Treasonous Media for about 5 years now. Many think that such a description of them is unnecessarily bombastic hyperbolic rhetoric. Though I have given numerous examples of their corruption and dishonesty, clear justification for stripping them of their previous moniker as the Fourth Estate and re-branding them the Fifth Column Treasonous Media, it is always the media themselves who provide the best examples of why.
If it isn’t Dan Rather, with his throbbing memo, so blatantly false that the public outrage eventually forced CBS to dismiss him, it’s MSLSD’s Chris Mathews “Thrill up his leg”. Martin Basher and his “Shit in Sarah Palin’s Mouth”? Now, it’s Barbra Walters with her confessions…
Who has been hurt by Barack Obama’s plummeting poll numbers? The President himself, of course, and his administration, and incumbent Democrats running for re-election and away from the “you can keep your plan” promise. However, don’t forget the mainstream media, who sent dozens of reporters to Wasilla, Alaska to investigate the supposedly unprepared governor as a Vice Presidential candidate but couldn’t be bothered to look into the Chicago Machine to test the qualifications of a rookie Senator for the top spot. Barbara Walters told Piers Morgan last night that everyone thought Obama was the Messiah, which is why his failures are so disappointing to them (via Newsbusters and Truth Revolt):
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.
It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.
The most important thing to understand here, is that Dan Rather, Chris Mathews, Martin Basher, and Barbra Walters are not exceptions to the rule, they are the rule. This is a fully systemic and endemic condition all across America’s Fifth Column Treasonous Media. It kind of makes this particular action by liberal Democrats take on a whole new and profoundly uncomfortable light. It’s almost as if they sense that they are in serious jeopardy and are hoping to avoid a fate they know they are fully deserving of.
Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and seven other Democrats have proposed legislation that would eliminate the possibility of imposing the death penalty for a range of federal offenses, including several categories of murder and crimes against the government like treason and espionage.
The Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act, H.R. 3741, would end the death penalty for assassination or kidnapping that results in the death of the president or vice president, and also ends it for the murder of a member of Congress.
Under the bill, the death penalty could no longer be used to punish people for using a weapon of mass destruction, or murder done via torture, child abuse, war crimes, aircraft hijackings, sexual abuse, bank robberies or the willful wrecking of a train.
Using chemical or biological materials to kill could also no longer result in the death penalty, nor could deaths related to treason or espionage. The death or injury of an unborn child could not result in the death penalty either.
Death of state or local law enforcement officials, using the mail to kill, kidnapping and killing people to stop them from testifying could no longer lead to the death penalty, nor could the use of firearms or armor piercing ammunition during any crime of violence.
We need to be absolutely perfect crystal clear on something here. In the United States of America under the United States Constitution, their are no crimes against the government like treason and espionage. Their are only crimes against the Constitution of the United States of America, which by the way, for those to ignorant or stupid to understand the difference, is not the United States Government. The United States Constitution reserves no such protections for the Government. In fact, the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution was written specifically for the purpose of excluding the “Government” from any such protection.
Every single elected official and every single member of the United States Military swear an oath to protect and defend, not the Government of the United States, but the Constitution of the United States of America. This was not an accident or a misunderstanding by the Founding Fathers, they knew exactly what they were doing when they wrote the United States Constitution this way. They knew damned well that human beings were subject to arrogance, narcissism and corruption, and that no individual politician or group could ever be 100 percent trusted.
What America’s Founding Father’s did not take into account was that their beloved Fourth Estate could or would become as corrupt as any totalitarian tyrannical government. The Fourth Estate was intended to stand as a guardian, a protector of the Republic against oppressive tyrannies and corrupt government officials, they never dreamed that it would one day become a Fifth Column Treasonous Media tool of a corrupt Government.
