Hey, you can lie about me POLITICO, Jonathan Martin, ya punk. You guys can lie about me, but you're takin' on the big guns, you're takin' on Beck. You know, you're an idiot if you take 'em on!
~ Sarah Palin
This is a delightful and fun interview between Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Glenn and his producer start out by goofing on the “Sarah is a diva” meme and then Glenn and Sarah rip on Jonathan Martin, one of the many corrupt JournoList members that work for POLITICO. Sarah calls Martin a “punk.”
Once done slicing and dicing that worthless website, the pair talk about the upcoming election and what needs to be done.
As to POLITICO, that site has more known members of JournoList than any other publication out there. We've reported before that POLITICO is little more than a propaganda tool for the left, and it's coverage is never to be trusted, without some independent verification by the reader.
Let me put it this way: POLITICO has all of the credibility of the Weekly World News, with none of the entertainment value.
What Sarah and Glenn are talking about is a particular piece of trash written by Jonathan Martin earlier this week entitled “Hurricane Sarah” that alleges all sorts of nonsense. Of course Martin, punk that he is, uses a favorite trick all “journalists” on the left, and particularly the hacks at POLITICO use in almost every story: “unnamed” and “anonymous” sources. "Sources close to the story." In this case, those sources are the voices in Jonathan Martin's head.
This is a long piece that has “anonymous sources” from various campaigns, as well as Beck's staff and others, claiming Sarah was unprofessional, hard to deal with, a diva, and on, and on. Not a single word in this piece of garbage is true, and every single politician and talk show host … oh hell, EVERYBODY, has demanded a retraction and a written apology!
Glenn Beck talked about it at the beginning of his Thursday show:
As Beck says, not one word in this hit piece is true. Not one word! He also demands a retraction.
Mark Levin demanded a retraction, as well, calling the story a “flat out lie”:
This is a flat out lie. Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me. Period. And John Martin, the reporter, never contacted me to ask me directly. I insist on a retraction.
Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters has more here.
As both Sheppard and the American Spectator's Jeffrey Lord point out, Sean Hannity has also demanded a retraction. Shepard and Lord both report Jonathan Martin, the low life that he is, is hiding under it's desk, and POLITICO has been silent to calls from Palin, Beck, Levin, Hannity, and the rest, for a retraction and an apology.
Stacy Drake reports that Senator Chuck Grassley and Congressman Steve King, both of Iowa, also call BS on the lies Jonathan Martin is spewing in this piece of trash POLITICO published.
Stacy slices and dices that nimrod quite well in a must read article.
Retracto, the Correction Alpaca over at Andrew Breitbart's Big Journalism weighs in here.
BTW, Jonathan Martin even LOOKS like a punk!
"Sources close to the situation" tell me Johnny molests collies in his spare time.
Look, the bottom line is this: POLITICO is a corrupt, not to be trusted news source. They lie about people, smear people, and just flat make things up, when no actually story exists. Jonathan Martin has a long history of this, and anything he writes should be suspect, including if he writes the sky is blue. That's how poor his credibility is.
The sad thing though is, as much as everyone would love for it to be different, Martin is the rule, rather than the exception, when we are talking about the so-called “main stream media.” The entire American “main stream media” is as corrupt as the day is long.
The bias is unbelievable. Not only do they lie and smear, they often cover up for their friends, and just fail to cover positive stories that matter. This has become such a standard practice that seasoned observers take it for granted, and casual observers don't even realize it.
Whether it's planting bombs on the gas tanks of Chevy pick up trucks, as NBC did, when they couldn't duplicate the urban legend saying they would explode on impact, or creating fake National Guard documents like CBS' Dan Rather and his producer Mary Mapes did 60 days before the 2004 presidential election, trying to corrupt the outcome, this is what they do.
Barack Obama took this to an entirely new level of corruption when he enlisted his now White House Chief of Staff, Pete Rouse to help him bribe a sitting Alaska State Senator with the offer of a job in his administration, if he would cook up an “October surprise” for then Governor Sarah Palin. Rouse even recruited an entire group of bloggers and reporters to make sure every lie was told to the entire world through compliant media outlets.
History shows that Troopegate (or Tasergate as Sarah calls it) was indeed an “October surprise” with the Branchflower Report “findings” being released three day before the 2008 presidential election, and Senator Kim Elton was paid handsomely for his efforts with a make work job in the Department of Interior.
History also shows the Branchflower Report, just days after the election, was completely discredited by independent investigator Timothy Petumenos, on behalf of the Alaska State Personnel Board. The Branchflower Report was a total lie.
This truth has not been widely reported, but the lie has.
As we have seen with NPR's despicable treatment of Juan Williams, these corrupt liars turn on their own when they wander off the plantation. Corrupt and evil.
We are at war in this nation. We have a real life struggle of good vs evil. Liberty and Freedom vs Tyranny and enslavement. National survival and prosperity vs sure destruction and poverty. This is a war we must win.
On our side, we have history and the truth. Conservatism is a proven winner. It has worked every time it's been tried. This nation was founded on Conservative ideas, and the Rule of Law.
The radical left , which has total control of the democrat party, only has lies and delusional thinking.
Unfortunately, they also have near total control of not only the media, but most of academia. Our children are indoctrinated at an early age that America is bad, Conservatism is evil, and Marxism is the plan. The media and our educational system are two very powerful tools the radical left exploits daily.
We must realize this is indeed war, and war for the very soul of the nation. We must understand the media is dishonest, and never trust it. Always verify any story, especially one about a leading Conservative.
This is a war we must win. The nation's very survival depends on it.
What can you really do?
Be aware. Be aware of the lies being told.
Fight back. Refudiate the lies. When you see a writer who lies, call them out. Most online magazines have comments sections. Call the writer out, and point out the truth. Post links in support of the truth. Write letters to your local editors when your newspaper prints lies. Make phone calls to the local radio and TV stations.
If you see someone, even friends, retelling a lie they heard (whether they know it's a lie, or not) correct them. The facts are on your side. Never allow someone in your company to get away with repeating lies they heard in the corrupt media. You may make a few mad, but even more will respect you.
Organize. Get your friends together and make a plan. Set up a local watchdog group to keep an eye on both your local as well an nation media. When you see lies, call the liars out en masse. Never let up.
We can win this, we must win this. But it will be a long struggle. None of this will end on November 2nd, no matter how great our victory. Quite the contrary. The left and it's partners in media and academia will get nastier. They will get bolder in their corruption.
2010 is lost, and most on the left realize that 2012 is almost a foregone conclusion. What they don't lose this November, they are most likely to lose in 2012. Knowing this, and having the feeling they have absolutely nothing else to lose, they will trow everything they have at us.
We must be prepared.
