Roanoke Times Editorial Political Pabulum and Bias

-
Roanoke Times, 9-28-10, Pg 5: U.S. seeks to monitor social media
-
What a gross editorial minimizing of the significance of Obama demanding internet media programs must provide a gateway for government access and monitoring.
What happened to the editorial diatribes about first amendment rights and the thrashing of the constitution when Bush utilized the Patriot Act for telephone surveillance of foreign terrorists calling into the US?

-
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2007/08/democrats-spying-on-you.html
-
-
Roanoke Times, 9-27-10, Pg 1 & 14: Road money, VDOT’s audit turned up a pot, but not enough to carry Virginia into the future. Found money is the most fun to spend.
-
What a sugar-coated view of this situation that was meant to cover-up the malfeasance of two Democrat administrations and the hundreds of square feet of Roanoke Times print lamenting and bashing the Republicans for not wanting to raise additional taxes for VDOT projects.
-
The Roanoke Times Editors didn’t even have the intellectual honestly to print the amount (almost $1 billion) that was found by audits initiated by Republican Gov. McDonnell; instead they labeled it a “potful”.
-
VirginiaBsiness.com: VDOT audit finds almost $1 billion in unspent funds
http://www.virginiabusiness.com/index.php/news/article/vdot-audit-finds-almost-1-billion-in-unspent-funds/
-
These are yet more examples of the published intellectual bias and slant of the Roanoke Times Editors that disqualifies them as a valid newspaper organization and relegates them to yet another of the Democrat party’s media outlets.

Matthew 6:13, Pelosi & The Pseudo-BlueDogs

-
Roanoke Times, 9-27-10, Pg 3: Taxes: Democrats confident of tax vote after elections.
-
Lead us not into temptation, we can find it all by our selves!
-
Pelosi, the wicked witch of the West (San Francisco) led the naïve newly elected pseudo-bluedogs into the swamps of massive deficits, debt and taxes with her “siren song” of socialistic populism.
-
With dark clouds now gathering over the reelections of her Congressional Minions, the witch is now faced with a rebellion against her plan for a vote on massive tax increases during this prolonged jobless recession.
-
Many of these Democrats are now hiding from their voting record of Cap&Tax, ObamaCare, Bailouts, TakeOvers and the Nonjob-generating trillion dollar stimulus of money we don’t have and can’t pay back.
-
The Democrat election strategy has now been reduced to its lowest common denominator “class warfare”.
Let’s Tax and denigrate those nasty rich people! Down with those who have rightfully achieved financial success within the American free enterprise system. After all, the top 5% are only paying 60% of the taxes. Let’s stoke the fires of class warfare with the 50% of the people who pay no net income taxes at all. This is not a new approach, the text book on this strategy was “Das Kapital” written by Karl Mark in 1906.
-
The bad news for America is that these people have massive amounts of campaign money and spin-doctors to saturate their friendly media in order to white-wash their voting records.
Hopefully the voters will see through the facade and vote them out on Nov 2nd.

Obama The Summary Executioner

-
Roanoke Times, 9-26-10, Pg 9: White House says case involves state secrets.
-
Obama has declared to the courts and the world that he has the sole and independent and unchallengeable right to target and kill American citizens throughout the world; and the Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, ACLU and their media minions stand totally mute!
-
The Roanoke Times demonstrates through their editorial silence the stark hypocrisy between the liberal-progressive media coverage of Bush vs. Obama. Where is the indignant and sanctimonious outrage? Where are the threats of impeachment? Where are the lists of violations of the Constitution and due process and habeas corpus being committed by Obama?
-
The Roanoke Times this week filled their paper with heartfelt sympathy and regret and apologies for the State execution of a woman convicted of the murder of her husband and stepson for money, yet these summary executions by Obama, without trial or due process, results in “the sound of silence.” What a pathetic example of politically motivated standards of justice and morality.
-
Sept 24, 2010 White House Seeks to Dismiss Suit Filed for Radical Cleric
“The lawsuit filed on the cleric's behalf seeks to have a court declare that the Constitution and international law bar the government from carrying out targeted killings; seeks to block the targeted killing of al-Awlaki; and seeks to force the U.S. government to disclose the standards for determining whether U.S. citizens can be targeted for death.”
-
“The Obama administration on Saturday invoked the state secrets privilege which would kill a lawsuit on behalf of U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, an alleged terrorist said to be targeted for death or capture under a U.S. government program.”
-
“In its court papers, the Justice Department said that the issues in the case are for the executive branch of government to decide rather than the courts.”
-

Prior Item – same hypocrisy
-
Dec 24, 2009 The Obama Doctrine: Summary Execution Better Than Water-Boarding
The liberals and left-wingers who have been so upset with our treatment of terrorists and Obama who just can’t close GITMO fast enough are now perfectly happy summarily killing targeted people in yet another country, Yemen! Apparently the liberals are OK with killing people without arrest, charges or legal process!
They have embraced the new Obama Doctrine: Summary Execution Better Than Water-Boarding. It’s also cheaper, simpler and lots faster.
Talk about your liberal bipolar-conflicted political, mental and ethical processes and the height of gross hypocrisy.

Ahmadinejad (ImAnutJob) And Obama Agree on Capitalism

-
Iran's Ahmadinejad (ImAnutJob) began his speech at the UN this week with a full-throated assault against capitalism.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/09/23/ahmadinejad-demise-capitalism-arrived/
-
Apparently ImAnutJob and Obama agree that capitalism and America’s free enterprise system are bad. Unfortunately for us Obama has been working diligently to diminish and marginalize the systems that have made this a great country. Obama is clearly an academic-socialist without any shame or remorse or apology for his policies of further degrading the American free enterprise system at the expense of real-jobs, real-growth and business development.
-
He has squandered over a trillion dollars of future tax dollars propping up his political constituents without regard for what makes our businesses and enterprises work. How could he know? He’s never had any involvement in business or industry and neither have most of his bureaucratic team members. Who among them have been a captain of industry and creator of good private industry jobs?
-
All Obama’s major initiatives are job killers including: card-check, higher taxes on successful and entrepreneurial people, Cap&Tax, extension of EPA job-killing initiatives, ObamaCare and curtailing sources of domestic energy.
In addition, he has filled the government regulatory agencies and judiciary with people who are blatantly hostile to industry and our free enterprise system.
-
The sooner the Obama, Pelosi, Reid programs of the Obamanation of American is ended the sooner we can get back on the path to economic success.

Obama’s Economic “Mission Accomplished”: Recession Ended June 2009

-
Obama’s Economic Mission Accomplished occurred before the Trillion Dollar NonJob-Stimulus was enacted (exactly how dull was that move?).
http://blogs.wsj.com/source/2010/09/21/recession-ended-june-2009-equities-rally/
-
The Obama Economic Recovery Outcomes
No Jobs
No economic recovery
Real estate train wreck
Record deficits
Record debt
No hope of paying off the debt in our lifetime
-
Now, after doing immense financial damage, Obama’s economic team (high on schooling, low on doing) are leaving like rats off a sinking old freighter.

http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/08/clintons-treasury-secretary.html

-
The blog item on Obama’s State of the Union speech is more valid now than when it was written:
“Twelve months in office with very limited positive accomplishments certainly didn’t stop our Aloft Arrogant Professor Obama from getting up in front of his lowly ignorant students and giving yet another lecture about the joys of socialism, big government, big taxes and big debt.
If you listened carefully you could hear the old civil war song playing in the background:
Neck Deep in the Big Muddy and the Big Fool Says Push-ON.
-
One might think that at some point in the speech Obama would turn to his wife and say:
Gee Michelle, I’ve a feeling we’re not at Yale anymore!”

More Arctic Ice Data Bias and Slant

-
Roanoke Times, 9-20-10, Pg 15: Opinion: A melting Arctic hits home
-
A summary of the varied wildlife that lives in the Arctic region and the author’s assessment of the impact a reduction in Artic ice cover may have on their survival.
Includes a large graphic showing yet another forlorn polar bear and a dire warning to Americans to change their ways.
-
Our 250 years of natural global warming has indeed had impacts on the environment as have the many thermal cycles the earth has experienced over the millennium.
During a major past cooling period, the brown bears that moved north found marine mammals to be a good source of food. Over time the lighter haired bears survived best resulting in the polar bears we have today.
What a change, and without any input from mankind!
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2009/04/brown-polar-bears-at-risk.html
-
Sixteen thousand years ago the Atlantic Ocean was 400 feet lower than it is today. The North Carolina Outer Banks were 50 miles east out at the continental shelf. Talk about your melting ice raising the sea level! And all without any input from mankind!
-
From 1750 to 1950 the Mendenhall Glacier retreated (melted) from close to downtown Juneau Alaska up the valley two and a half miles (2-1/2 mi) with no significant change in CO2 or any input from mankind!
-
CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE:


-
The Artic has been relatively free of summer ice in the past and it appears that will happen again. Just 3,000 years ago Greenland was 3 degrees C warmer than it is now. Clearly the satellite images from that period would have show the Northwest Passage far different than it is today!
http://mclean.ch/climate/Ice_cores.htm
-
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2007/09/northwest-passage-opening-again-soon.html
-
Isn’t it way past due to stop the Gore-Hysteria and fear mongering and report the climate history in its historical perspective?
The climate is changing! The climate has always been changing, and without any input from mankind!
-
Last week Russian fighter planes “buzzed” an American military ship in the Northwest Passage. Russia, Norway, America and Canada are claiming the Artic region as part of their territory. The real interesting Artic story is the coming war for oil and gas that lies below the diminishing Artic ice.

Some news from the Non Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change:

-
The Glaciers of Greenland were smaller 5000 years ago;
African savanna trees thrive with increases in CO2;
It was hotter in China a thousand years ago, and by a whole degree;
Marine-life-with-shells can’t agree on their favourite CO2 level and
Temperatures make no difference to the 5000 year record of hurricanes.

Obama Hawking Class and Race Warfare

-
Obama sees and hears and feels the American people’s reaction to his wrong-headed social, political and economic policies and he is frightened at the prospects of the November elections; and frightened people resort to primal instincts.
-
Tax those nasty rich people! Down with those who have rightfully achieved financial success within the American free enterprise system. After all, the top 5% are only paying 60% of the taxes. Let’s stoke the fires of class warfare with the 50% of the people who pay no net income taxes at all.
-
Obama-Pelosi-Reid are spending trillions of dollars we don’t have and can’t pay back with no significant positive results. To feed this monster Obama wants to diminish through taxes and regulation those people who have the assets and capability to generate new businesses and new private industry jobs.
And whose money is it anyway?
-
After months of this Class warfare Obama has now launched, before the Congressional Black Caucus, the political Race war opening the wounds of racism and division that MLK worked tirelessly to resolve.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/09/18/obama-black-lawmakers-rally-voters-home/?test=latestnews
-
These are not the actions of any American President in our history.
Apparently Obama is not capable of leaving behind the actions and behaviors he practiced on the streets of Chicago. He does not comprehend that the office and position of President of The United States demands much more than that.
What a sad and pathetic chapter in American history!

Chancellor Merkel Stands Tall While Obama Kowtows to Muslims

-
Not found in the Roanoke Times; apparently coverage would displease their benefactors. One would think the Roanoke Times and their liberal-progressive “first amendment loving” associates would have made this a front page story! I’m sure they would have had it been an anti-Christian item.
-
Kowtow Definition: To kneel in expression of deep respect, worship, or submission.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2009/04/audacity-of-groveling.html
-
BERLIN –Sept 8, 2010: German Chancellor Angela Merkel praised the bravery of a Danish cartoonist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad at an award ceremony honoring his achievements for freedom of speech.
http://www.seattlepi.com/national/1103ap_eu_germany_denmark_prophet_drawing.html
-
While Chancellor Merkel stands tall before the Muslim thugs and intimidators of all who cross their paths, our Virtual-Muslim President kisses up to those who harbor and support those who have declared Jihad against us including the King of the country from which 19 of the 9-11 terrorists originated.
Obama’s 9-11 speech at the Pentagon was yet more “let’s forgive and forget” pabulum.
We will never forget 9-11 just as we never forgot Pearl Harbor and the Jews will never forget the Holocaust.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2010/09/9-11-another-day-that-lives-in-infamy.html
-
Everyone was touched by 9-11 in some way. We have two friends who lost their young sons at the WTC. One was an accountant, there that morning for a job interview. The other a fireman following in his fathers footsteps.
-
Life goes on and some people are fickle and sadly there is now a form of political correctness (fostered by Obama and associates) that wishes for us to forgive and forget while the war still rages on and our soldiers are giving their all for us.
How pathetic! What a sad period in American history!

Burning Quran’s Bad; Bibles Not So Much

-
Roanoke Times, 9-8-10, Pg 1 & 16: Pastor of Pentecostal Church in Florida is resisting pleas to cancel the burning of Qurans on 9-11
-
Many people of good will are pleading with Rev. Jones to not burn any Qurans.
Apparently the mass media hype and notoriety have overcome the judgment of what should be a reasonable and prudent Christian person.
-
It’s interesting that the past burning of Bibles has not caused a front page media stir no less an avalanche of public notice and notoriety including statements by the Commander of our troops and the Sec. of State. Why is that? After all, these people have already declared war (Jihad) against us and are killing our people as best they can.
Even our politically correct (PC) history books are afraid to tell students that the Saracens that were confronted by Charlemagne were Muslims.
-
Some bible burning examples we never heard about:
Several high school students in Eritrea were locked up earlier this month ( Aug 2008 ) in metal shipping containers as punishment for protesting the burning of hundreds of Bibles.The students had objected when military authorities at Sawa Defense Training Center near Eritrea’s border with Sudan began burning more than 1,500 Bibles that were confiscated from new students enrolled in the upcoming academic year on Aug. 5, a source told the persecution watchdog agency Compass Direct News.
http://www.christianpost.com/article/20080813/christian-students-locked-up-for-protesting-bible-burning/index.html
-
Messianic Jews in Israel say they want an inquiry into the burning of hundreds of copies of the New Testament by Orthodox Jews in Or Yehuda last week ( May 2008 ).
The books were given to the town's Ethiopian Jews by the Messianic Jews, who believe in Jesus as a saviour.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7413134.stm
-
Based on the articles and editorials in The Roanoke Times it appears that burning bibles and marginalizing Christian icons does not disturb the sensibilities of the Editors and their liberal-progressive media associates.
Apparently placating our Virtual-Muslim President and appeasing the Muslims he is bowing to is far more important that having a fair and balanced view and coverage of Christian religious transgressions. In fact the Editors publicly mock the concept of “Christ in Christmas” at every opportunity including their recent 9-3-10 editorial.
-
Roanoke Times Embraces Islam; Christianity Not So Much
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2010/08/roanoke-times-embraces-islam.html

Obama Doubles-Down With Your Money Again

-
Roanoke Times, 9-7-10, Pg 1& 12: Obama proposes another stimulus to a union rally in Milwaukee. The focus: roads, rails and runways (planes, trains & automobiles).
-
Republicans Response: What happened to the last NOT-shovel-ready jobs and how are we going to pay for all this debt and borrowing?
The Sierra Club Response: What about the CO2 and global warming?

Yet another Obama payoff to his union friends and supporters with your future tax-dollars, without remorse or apologies for the financial disaster he has enacted and propagated.
Where are and where were the shovel-ready jobs:
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2009/10/kaine-and-vdot-not-shovel-ready.html
-
Does this wizard from Harvard have any idea what’s involved in doing a major infrastructure job? Some long-lead (multi-year) mandatory items: Architectural proposals and development of specifications, years of environmental impact processes, selection of and then acquisition of private property through the courts, building permits, bid proposals, bid selection, concentrations of men, material and equipment.
-
Obama and his economically-challenged team members have squandered a major opportunity to put the American free enterprise system back on the road to private sector growth and job creation.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2010/09/obama-insulting-our-intelligence-again.html

Roanoke Times Hiding From The Environmental Throwdown

-
Roanoke Times, 8-30-10, Pg 12: Editorial: An environmental throwdown; Blacksburg and Roanoke face off in the Green Community Challenge.
-
A spirited description of friendly competition between cities for improving the environment, reducing waste and encouraging sustainable actions.
So what’s wrong with this picture?
Why is the Roanoke Times in the bleachers when they should be “on the field”.
-
The Roanoke Times has a massive carbon footprint that stretches from the woodlands, through the power-plants all the way through their factory to the customers to the landfill.
-
What is their problem? Why aren’t they proactively calculating and publishing their carbon footprint data and then stating their plans to improve their performance and then publishing how they’re doing against their plan?
-
Following are Seven Public Documented Challenges to the Roanoke Times over the past four and a half years to put up or shut-up about “going green”.
We are all waiting for some responsible action to replace all their hot air that’s adding to Roanoke’s Local Warming.
And stop cutting down perfectly good trees to publish your tripe. Didn’t Gore tell you that these trees are important for consumption of CO2 and supplying O2.

Obama Insulting Our Economic Intelligence Again

-
Roanoke Times, 9-6-10, Pg 3: Obama to propose research tax credits to speed up the recovery. Large picture of Obama with six of his economically-challenged team members.
-
Supporting research is very important. But without a competitive development and manufacturing infrastructure it simply results in products being built in off-shore locations that then benefit from job creation and profits and further development with scant benefit to America. There are few American invented and designed products being manufactured in America because we are not competitive.
-
Obama is clearly an academic-socialist without any shame or remorse or apology for his policies of further degrading the American free enterprise system at the expense of real-jobs, real-growth and business development.
-
He has squandered over a trillion dollars of future tax dollars propping up his political constituents without regard for what makes our businesses and enterprises work. How could he know?

Who among them have been a captain of industry and creator of good private industry jobs?

Roanoke Times Jihad Against Va AG Cuccinelli

-
Roanoke Times, 9-1-10, Pg 1 & 16: Front Page: Cuccinelli rebuked on getting information from UVa. Pg 16: Editorial: Judge shoots down Cuccinelli.
Small print: The Judge said indeed the AG can investigate fraud, but first he must show some evidence of a crime in the UVA climate witch hunt.
-
The Va AG request for information from UVa:
Whoa there Cuccinelli – stop your court action to get data from UVa.
We liberals wouldn’t want the public to see the basis for Prof Mann to get millions of dollars of taxpayer money to pursue the Gore-Hypothesis and its predetermined-science-outcomes. Forget all that open-government and transparency stuff we constantly throw at folks and issues we oppose – this is different!
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2010/03/obamas-epas-conflict-with-virginia-ag.html
=
=
The Cap&Tax challenge:
Whoa there Cuccinelli – stop explaining to the public the impacts of Cap&Tax on utility bills.
We liberals are looking forward to government mandated massive increases in the cost of all energy related products and services and the resulting loss in jobs. We will use our liberal-progressive-media to hammer the utilities and manufacturing and service industries as the villains for price increases and direct the public’s attention away from the real cause. After all, somehow, it must be Bush’s fault anyway.
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2009/07/perriello-boucher-pelosi-vote-for-cap.html
=
=
The ObamaCare personal mandates:
Whoa there Cuccinelli – . Stop your lawsuits against the federal government in support of a bipartisan Virginia law that prohibits individuals to be forced by law to buy ObamaCare products.
We liberals are pleased that ObamaCare mandates each American business and person to comply with its demands, costs, bureaucracy and enforcement by the IRS. After all, personal responsibility was just a fad and socialism is a much better method of managing and directing the masses. Haven’t you ever read Karl Marx?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2010/06/more-obamacare-lies-and-deception.html
=
=
Christ & Christmas:
Roanoke Times, Editorial, 9-3-10, Pg 13: A church-state minefield. Localities shouldn’t take Cuccinelli’s opinion on Christmas displays as a green light. Officials who want to “put the Christ back in Christmas” should hire a lawyer.

Whoa there Cuccinelli – We progressive-liberals know this country wasn’t founded by people who placed God above all else. This was a secular country founded by atheists and agnostics. Ignore all those prayers, emblems, icons, crosses and that thing about being “created equal” by a supreme entity. That’s all revisionist history propagated by those evil bible-banging folks in Lynchburg.

The Abortion Clinic Cleanliness Initiative
Whoa there Cuccinelli – Stop demanding that abortion clinics meet the same standards of cleanliness that other outpatient facilities must meet including inspections to ensure medical standards are being met.
We liberals don’t worry about abortion facilities meeting medical standards as long as they get the job done.
