Never under estimate the power of our government using propaganda and misinformation through the media, which they so obviously control! Never before, in our day and age, has the media been SO one sided in their reporting. The news media, through our own government, has neglected to do ANY real investigative reporting of the truth about our leaders in our government, unless it benefits the socialist leaning liberals in power.
There is no more freedom of the press. It has been hijacked by our government and it is being used as a tool to further the governments agendas! Gone are the days when you could watch ANY news station report the facts as they were uncovered. Now, the news media throws softball questions at leaders who are far leaning socialists, and attack like a shark, anyone who does not agree with the ideals of Socialism!
I challenge ANYONE to prove me wrong! Where is the outrage that we all saw for then president Nixon for Watergate? Obama has survived any REAL reporting of the truth about - FAST AND FURIOUS, BENGHAZI, NSA, and SPYING ON THE AP.
A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014.. They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us. The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight.
Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either. Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UN's International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN's ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal.
The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power. If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger.
Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan reported by the media almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet, or supportive of Obama.
More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan.
The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Muslim Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, and a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this inept president.
It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war. Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform, but uses them as widow dressing for his photo opportunities. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president, and other leaders who think like him.
Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.
The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.
The press has become nothing more that an campaign mechanism for Obama, and other socialists.
