Constitution = Middle Ground, so be
neither Left or Right...
instead, be a true, blue American!

|The many homes of Democrat Presidential candidate, John F. Kerry: |
Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania (Assessed value: $3.7 million)
Ketchum, Idaho ski getaway/vacation home (Assessed value: $4.916 million)
Washington, D.C - Georgetown area (assessment: $4.7 million)
Nantucket, Massachusetts waterfront retreat on Brant Point (Assessed value: $9.18 million)
Boston, Massachusetts - Beacon Hill home (Assessed value: $6.9)
oh, and he sold this estate in Italy to activist actor George Clooney, just before announcing his running for president. I guess he thought it might not sit well with the common man. ($7.8 million)
other foreign property ownership by John Kerry is unknown... because he denied repeated requests for this information.
Please e-mail this information to all your friends, family and contacts. Class warfare is not right, but neither is being a hypocrite. This man wants to be our president, while claiming that he relates to Joe-6-pack and the common man. He wants to raise income taxes on the rich, well, guess what? He won't pay those taxes because he is already rich! He wants to make it harder for you to get rich by raising taxes on your income! Talk about snobbery and protecting his "class."
[Editor's Note: Personally, I have no problem with other folks having ten or twenty mansions. However, they need to be truthful with the public and not try to project a false image that says "I'm a common man." Anyone who ownes this many high-priced homes is anything but common. I've often wondered if it might not be the high rollers who are behind socialistic thought and not just the Proletarians. If we were to measure the degree of wealth to determine whether a man is a Bourgeois, many of the Socialists of today would more than qualify I believe. --Al Colombo]

OUT OF CONTROL
Two politicians in Maryland are now in trouble for stating the obvious:
People who work in customer service should speak English. And out-of-control
multiculturalism is to blame for the failure to preserve America's common
language. The professional victims are up in arms as usual -- demanding apologies,
whining to the press and clamoring for government subsidies to nurse their
hurt feelings. (For English, please press '1', by Michelle Malkin, ©2004 Creators Syndicate, Inc.)
[EDITOR'S NOTE: I have to agree. For example, I like to use Kmart phone cards, but in order to use it, "I" have to press 1 for English instead of some "Spaniard" pressing 1 for Spanish! Imagine that! You and I as Americans have to press 1 to listen to the greeting in English!
When I lived in Chicago, I actually drove away from drive thrus because the Mexican worker that management had on the intercom could not speak English very well. I honestly could not understand them, nor could they understand me! I would then go home or the office and call the store. I would tell the manager what I thought about the practice of putting non-English-speaking workers on an intercom to interact with Americans who may or may not speak Spanish. I have no problem with people coming to this country and working for a living, but this is an English speaking country--whether people like it or not.

Those of you who believe that the recent flurry of negative news reports on various aspects of this President's watch are the entire fault of this Administration should stand back, take a deep breath, and look at what they really represent. The news industry has been either infiltrated or corrupted , perhaps both, by Leftist Ideology. Plain and simple.
Yesterday, Paul Harvey stated that most of the 19 military officers who appear in the picture with John Kerry that you have seen so many times have sent letters asking him (Kerry) not to show it anymore. They don't want to be associated with him. A recent petition, signed by many who served with Kerry--which the press will not air--states that this individual is not Presidential material. If those he served with say this, then perhaps you need to listen.
A Controlled Media?
For some time I've pondered why it is that the majority of U.S. Newspapers, Radio and Television news media carry the same content, even the same printed articles, from one end of the country to the other. At first I reasoned that it was because the major portion of them buy these stories from the Associated Press and other news organizations. I have no doubt that this is a large part of it. However, whenever I established the Off The Shortwave section on The Giant Killers website and began listening to foreign radio broadcasts, I soon discovered that they, too, carried the same content that was broadcast here in the United States, with the exception of certain countries, such as Cuba.
The question is, could our media be under the control or direction (what's the difference?) of a central agency, governmental or Elitist body of some kind? The evidence seems to point to this. Where I could buy the arguement that all the newspapers, radio stations, and television stations get their news from certain news organizations, it's very hard to believe that this would also apply to foreign radio stations (I did not scan foreign television).
The issue of a controlled media is not at all new. Politicians faced the same question back in the mid 80s by way of the United Nations. At the time communist nations proposed that UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) be given the task of controlling international news. At the time it was referred to as a new world information order. In protest, the United States and Great Britain withdrew from UNESCO in 1983 and 1984 respectively:
"Many Third World governments contend that Western journalists present distorted views of their countries and, with Soviet bloc support, secured (1980) a UNESCO resolution calling for a new world information order that would, while affirming the principle of freedom of the press, give UNESCO the right to regulate news organizations. The proposal provoked strong protest from Western nations, including the withdrawal from UNESCO of the United States (1983) and Britain (1984) at least in part over the issue of the proposed "new world information order" (David K. Berninghausen, Freedom of the Press, Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia, Release 6).
Those who doubt that a controlled media is possible, there are several issues to consider that I believe point to this possibility.
- If you examine the status of the economy, you will find that it is linked with that of other countries in a manner that has forced each country to be interdependent on the other.
- If you look at the status of our military, we are slowly being integrated with the military components of other countries. Some time ago when I examined the website of the United States Air Force, it said that by some future date, I believe it said 2010, there would not be a United States Air Force, but a world airforce. My question is, united against who?
- Many of the uniforms and the military equipment now being used do not bare any country designation, thus making it difficult to tell the difference between one nation's military and another.
- If you look at our military bases across the United States, you will see an assortment of fighting men and women from all corners of the earth, training, working, and living together. In fact, you will find foreign soldiers working for the United States government under the U.N. joint training mandates. U.S. soldiers are, likewise, serving in other militaries around the globe in the same manner I am told.
- One father who formerly served in the U.S. Armed Forces told of his son who said he would not remain in the U.S. Military because he had seen foreign soldiers standing guard over our minuteman missile silos. No, I didn't go out and confirm this. I've heard such talk from others. I've heard enough to know that a good part of this has got to be true.
A controlled media ... is it possible? If such a high degree of integration is taking place in all of the above areas, why not the global media pool?
John Swinton, former Chief of Staff, New York Times, gave a toaste in 1953 at the New York Press Club, saying:
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.
"If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to filify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
"We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes" (Operation Vampire Killer 2000, published by Police Against The New World Order, Phoenix, Arizona, Copyright 1992).
This was in 1953!
