Fox News: Terrorism as Revenue Stream – Innuendo as an Artform

Terror-fi-cation by Innuendo

carefully engineered stream of propaganda that is designed to dissuade the viewer from leaving the confines and comfort of the Fox News family of advertisers.

If you’re a Fox News watcher – you may not realize how severely fact-challenged you’ve become.  In fact,  you may not realize that your opinion isn’t a product of your own cognitive reasoning, but rather the purposeful result of a continuous stream of marketing and mis-information that has been irradiating your psyche with the sole intent of conditioning you to point of addiction to Fox’s “News-like” appearance, although there is no evidence that Fox News actually practices any legitimate journalism.

That is to say, Fox gives the impression of a news organization by featuring some names that have been associated with journalism, but what they deliver is a carefully engineered stream of propaganda that is designed to dissuade the viewer from leaving the confines and comfort of the Fox News family of advertisers.

It’s Not the Viewer’s Fault

with the occasional fact used as a condiment.

The Fox News subliminal drone of ‘Fair & Balanced’ is the equivalent of “The People’s Republic” in the Chinese National handle.  It is an impression, that is to say, it represents what they want one to believe without the pesky inconvenience or risk of actually being rooted in fact.

It is accomplished by giving you implied ownership with slogan’s uttered by professional teleprompter readers or actors posing as journalistic types.  Comments such as, “We’ll be right back – Fox – your balanced news source!”  Graphics carrying similar declarations  precede and end segments and are used as transitional devices for remotes.  When these aren’t useful, continuous screen crawls imbued with the slogans are continuously making their way past one’s consciousness and penetrate the fact / fiction border in the manner of guerrilla warriors taking cover with the occasional fact used as a condiment.

Sean Hannity – Voice of America ?? – Really ??

while the other group is power hammered into believing that the bar has been lowered so much – that anyone can earn 5 Million a year by talking … poop.

If you have ever wondered how Sean Hannity is gainfully employed in broadcast journa-talkism ??  Then you’re not a Fox News addict yet.  But don’t disregard these seemlingly harmless hawker of innuendo and fictionalized fact over which he presides.  He’s extremely effective.  If nothing else, he inspires hope in a flotilla of viewers that are factually lost at sea.  He epitomizes the celebrated demographic delta of morbid curiosity and ‘if he can do it, anyone can do it’ among its customers.  The former pinned to the television to see if Hannity will terminally lodge his foot in is mouth, while the other group is power hammered into believing that the bar has been lowered so much – that anyone can earn 5 Million a year by talking … poop.  And who’s to say this isn’t true in the face of – well – his face on the television and matter of fact cadence of information that as a matter of fact – isn’t constrained by … facts.  Here’s a sample of when Hannity is even ruled to be ‘off-the-rails’ by the inventor of ‘off-the-rails’ politics – Newt Gingrich.

Brit Hume – Inspired by Nigel Bruce

… puppy dog eyes and the beginnings of distinguished jowels, belches the news…

One of the more comical masters of innuendo is noted for trailing off ends of sentences into indiscernable mumblings that may or may not be relevant to the underlying stories.  In memorable yet exceedlingly unimportant newscasts, Hume mystifies the viewer into forgetting that his bitterness and cynicism have merged yielding an automaton who can read commentary as though it were news – and without as much as a flinch – can conclude a barrage of misinformation with a punctiliously crafted – “and that’s the fair and balanced news.”  Not unlike Nigel Bruce’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes’ partner in crime detecting, Dr. John Watson – the mere mention of Brit Hume inspires as autonomic reaction of throat clearing with simultaneous smirk.  It’s really just a matter of conditioning.

Brit Hume, with puppy dog eyes and the beginnings of distinguished jowels, belches the news irrespective of fact, along with the ‘Usual Suspects’ such as Fred Barnes, Juan Williams and the late Tony Snow – all equally capable making the average person hurl their shoes at a television screen.

NeoCons, Bushies and Terror – The Mother Lode of Demographics

…impression of insight, even though it was all military grade … bunk.

Fox News has built an empire by being the pitch team for the shareholders of the current Administration.  Now shareholders are distinct from stakeholders (which would be the rest of us) inasmuch as the shareholders operate on getting a return.  Think of this as institutional advertising for the big picture.

Remember when a few months ago, it was revealed that the Pentagon had on their payroll, retired war-mongers armed with talking-points, that were posing as Network analysts with insight. Fox News launched the venue.  Did you ever wonder why the networks didn’t make a big deal about this obvious scam ??  Simple.   They sought these people in order to be in step with Fox News – who simply chummed the broadcast waters while CNN, MSNBC, CBS News, ABC News and the plethora of repackaged versions of the same – begged to have military experts adorn the little boxes on the TV as though every newscast were The Hollywood Squares.  They just coudn’t resist having a retired generals and even colonels, pepper their broadcasts with the impression of insight, even though it was all military grade … bunk.

Bill O’Reilly, Fox & Friends and the other Cartoons

Steve Doocy …  ostensibly in fulfillment of his contract with Fox and we find it a singularly disheartening sell-out of values.

Frankly, Bill O’Reilly is commentary.  From a purely American perspective, this is Free Speech. Which means that there are plenty of others that are making good careers making fun of, writing books about or drawing caricatures of O’Reilly in sufficient abundance, that we’re not going to devote much real estate to him. While personally, we may agree that he is a buffoon – he’s uniquely American inasmuch as he has a huge following of buffoons, much the same way as a light bulb attracts gnats and moths on a summer night.  A man whose oratory skills and intolerable speaking style drives one to truly appreciate closed-captioning.

Steve Doocy, formerly a journalist, decided to abandon the craft for talky-newsy endeavors, despite his education.  This individual may be the most troubling of all the FOX family for a few reasons. First, it is our impression that he is a genuinely nice person that only plays an idiot on TV.  Secondly, he knows better.  He knows what innuendo is and he knows that he’s doing his bit simply for a pay-check.  While it’s great to take care of one’s family and to be gainfully employed – and to that end – this is a family man and good soul – How does he rise each day and shill for a deeply dark abyss of morality, and return to his family with pride?  We have an answer – although not a very nice one – simple greed.  Truly a disappointment.

To be clear, it isn’t our intention to suggest that by not agreeing with our particular point of view constitutes shame.  In fact, we find contention a valuable use of time.  Discussing, even arguing strategy, tactics and better courses for American prosperity and values.  However, we’ve heard the series of barely audible and rarely understandable talking points delivered by Doocy at the required intervals, ostensibly in fulfillment of his contract with Fox and we find it a singularly disheartening sell-out of values.

Obama / McCain : ‘Survivor – D.C.’

Challenge One:  The American Polls

"I like to do this with my thumbs"

"I like to do this with my thumbs"

the ‘Top-Gun’ accolade, Maverick, has many people believing that John McCain is actually Tom Cruise, and they don’t realize that he’s really the old guy on the TV News

Generally, polls across the country reveal Senator Barack Obama trending ahead of John McCain, despite some of the peculiar polling techniques.  By peculiar, we mean those polls that are designed to influence the outcome by employing the Socratic method of deduction.  Remember, telephone polling has the additional advantage of directing ones answer by the vocal inflection of the questioner.  Think we’re fooling? – take a few of those polls the next time you find yourself dodging your caller-ID as though you were dashing through the defense on the way to goal line.  Sooner than later you’ll get a list of questions that appears to have the answers built-in.

Even in the face of some less than truthful pollsters – Obama’s surge (pardon the expression) is evident and has the long-toothed McCain elders in a huddle in order to throw as much cold water on Obama-mania as they can.  The plans, as we have observed, include heavily quoting the Republican demographic that is largely influenced by political street-money, that is to say, those that vote in order to receive the pancake breakfast, bus ride and the day-trip to the Casino, including buffet vouchers.  Traditionally this is the voting demographic that has put McCain ahead of Obama polls querying military leadership and terrorism management.

Of course, the McCain fictional depictions, while not exhibiting the chutzpah of the current Commander-

"Call me Mav"

"Call me Mav"

in-Chief’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ aircraft carrier one act stage play, are still propaganda of the highest order.  While retired General Wes Clark got hammered for explaining that John McCain has no bonafides when it comes to military knowledge or experience, we’re still forced to ask the questions:

Wouldn’t a pilot that wasn’t shot down be a more likely celebrated authority?

Why does being a prisoner of war, as horrifying and breath-taking a sacrifice as that may be, denote military knowledge or diplomatic skill??

We’re still convinced that the lifting of the ‘Top-Gun’ accolade ‘Maverick has many low-information individuals confusing John McCain with Tom Cruise, and they don’t realize that he’s really the old guy on the TV News that appears to be a little dazed when asked questions at news conferences.

Challenge Two: Keeping McCain Looking Viable to Meet Ad Sales Projections

the case of John McCain, it’s more like ‘Week-end at Bernies’ since eventually, McCain will never stand up on his own.

This is not as complicated as it may appear.  Briefly speaking, the corporate media machine is hungry for their share of the political booty.  Even if there has already been a trend to permit anti-trust activities and a monopolistic seizure of our national news trust, despite the actual mission of the FCC – the corporate media machine has a voracious appetite and aggressive accountants.  They’ve planned on a field day for Ad sales and profits, so don’t get so baffled when you don’t understand why the corporate media doesn’t squish McCain with a hammer of his own arrogance.

Consider this – a  trendy restaurant is located in the middle of a block in an industrial neighborhood in Any City, USA.  Right next door is a commercial  parking lot, privately owned.  Since most of the area is devoted to small factories, the occupants generally travel by public transportation.  Half of the parking lot revenue is now from the restaurant.  The owner of the parking lot knows that the owner of the restaurant is a creep.  He lies.  He serves substandard food and has paid-off all the health department officials.  Would it be in the parking lot owner’s best interest to publicly demonstrate against the restaurant??  Is it likely he would put signs on the entrance to his parking lot encouraging business to go elsewhere?  Is it likely that he would voluntarily give up 50% of his business?  Just set it on fire ??

Of course not.  Now you know why the media doesn’t challenge John McCain.  Even if it were Mike Huckabee or Andy Dick in the other slot, we’re perfectly confident that the corporate media would create an oxygen rich environment and a series of ‘good-days’ creating an illusion of collusion. Although in the case of John McCain, it’s more like ‘Week-end at Bernies’ since eventually, McCain will never stand up on his own.

Challenge Three:  Spinning Without Getting Dizzy

"Who's the Maverick - You're the Maverick ! ... You're the Maverick !"

"Who's the Maverick - You're the Maverick ! ... You're the Maverick !"

the corporate media newsters are feasting like hummingbirds in a nectar rich garden; or, a food fight at the local reformatory, depending upon one’s broadcast preferences.

Many have heard the sonic boom of talking point volleys, mostly promoted by the corporate media machine, in which opposing political analysts engage in fictional arguments by decrying official knowledge of their candidates’ inner-most thoughts and reasoning.  The campaign of John McCain, not unlike the President’s staff, is characterized by its spring-loaded snarking arrogance, while the Obama team is generally characterized by shrugged shoulders and ever-so-slight grimaces as they painfully endure re-purposed platitudes that require a Sherpa in order to find an relevant talking point.

In the past few weeks McCain challenged Obama to visit Iraq, Obama plans trip, McCain camp accuses Obama of grandstanding, McCain criticizes Obama, then criticizes his own people then criticizes Obama … then adopts Obama’s Iraq strategy and claims original title to it, without breaking stride or changing the dyspeptic look on the collective McCain mask.

Confidantes have revealed that the McCain collective had to throw together some ill-fitting talking points when Obama derailed their war plan by re-assessing his stance on the FISA bill and then opted to take heat from his own side of the aisle rather than to permit John McCain to paint his opposition with a broad brush that was sure to include quotes from Stalin and Hugo Chavez as part of a smear campaign.  In fact, just recently, trying out new lines … McCain implied that Obama was a Socialist by inference, and then when asked directly about it, responded “I don’t know.”  So deep in the bowels of the McCain brain-trust, the mill wheels are turning, refining the wholesome flour in order to bake cakes from the Cindy McCain recipe collection – in the shape of monkey wrenches to hurl at Obama at periodic intervals.  While it’s not the Food Network – the corporate media newsters are feasting like hummingbirds in a nectar rich garden; or, a food fight at the local reformatory, depending upon one’s broadcast preferences.

Challenge Four: Dinosaur vs. Elders

"Light me dude ?"

"Light me dude ?"

They have no ideological differences, although they are very playful in front of reporters and often taunt each other with a wink and a nod.

The Democratic symbol may as well have been the dinosaur since the Clinton administration held the door open while Republican’s cleaned House and grappled a majority in Congress.  Very adept business professionals of the Democratic persuasion figured how they could co-exist, not unlike the manner in which the Vichy co-existed with the Nazis.  Sorry it isn’t pretty but its true.  We refer to these Vichy-crats as dinosaurs, because they are lumbering, nearly extinct and serve no purpose other than to impose themselves and threaten with their largesse.   This is the nearly extinct and panicked wing of the Democratic party that has threatened Obama.  They have done so because they stand a better chance of group success if the Democratic Party remains the way it is – as opposed to being infused with youth, couth and truth.  They share a common DNA thread with their collaborative counterparts of the Republican persuasion – political patronage. Obama is not beholden to them, and as such, poses an ideological / fiscal impasse of life-threatening proportions.  There is a substantial amount of expended ‘Quid’ that will likely not receive its promised ‘Quo’ and the Dinosaurs would sooner collude with the Grand Ole’ Pachyderms than miss on cashing in at all.  The problem is, they ate all their cover so they likely may be taking their lumps or lose

Richard Perle, architect of Iraq invasion and neocon chieftan

even more.  These are the people that quietly made millions on welfare spending.

Of course, their counterparts, a group of neoconservative cowardly oligarchs that have as much to do with freedom as the first slave traders that ever set up shop on shores of Ivory Coast.  This group of miscreants developed liver spots on their pasty skin when they were in grammar school as their own physiology was repulsed by the damage they could cause humanity.  This is the group of Americans that refer to their employees as their people – not because its trendy – but because they own them, or at least believe they do.  The play very well with the Dinosaurs because they  consider themselves ‘special needs’ of a pedigree, even if it is not the same pedigree.   They have no ideological differences, although they are very playful in front of reporters and often taunt each other with a wink and a nod.  These are the people that vociferously protest the departure of American forces from Iraq, because of the billions of dollars at risk if they aren’t able to secure their portion of the oil booty – and – how complicated it all becomes if the American taxpayer won’t provide 100 years of security forces in order to protect their (the oligarchs) wealth in the region.

UPDATE:

Challenge Five: Making Confidential Plans for State Visits to Foreign Lands Without John McCain Leaking Them

McCain may have subconciously been trying to go for a more complete cancellation

As though ripped from an old Twilight Zone episode – earlier today – it was reported that John McCain was publicly discussing the confidential plans of Obama and other members of the US Senate and their expected visit to Iraq.  Obviously, not eager to have Obama receive the lion’s share of the press while making an historic visit to the region that American lives are threatened daily, and the region of a conflict central to his campaign for President, John McCain had a senior moment and revealed details of the trip publicly in a most sophomoric display featuring his trademark poor judgment and loquaciousness.

Apparently, panic has consumed the McCain campaign as they scurry to divert attention from the national press and corporate media in covering the European and Iraq visits by Obama.  While the White House was unsuccessful in getting Obama’s Brandenburg Gate gig cancelled – McCain may have subconciously been trying to go for a more complete cancellation by revealing facts that had not been shared publicly about the timing of the Obama contingent’s itinerary.  There was no response avialble from the Obama camp at the time of this article.

McCain – Republican Royalists Re-visited

The Loquacious Liaison League & Loyal Lobbyists

“We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.”

Clearly the U.S. Constitution provides for the lobbying of Congress, and to that point, the mjgramm.jpgprotection of  lobbying seems to have mystically transformed itself into protection of lobbyists. For instance, one of architects of the type of unbridled financial deregulation that has indisputably led to our national mortgage disgrace is former Senator Phil Gramm (R-Texas) Co-Chair of McCain’s presidential campaign. Read Politico here.

fiorina.jpgAdd to that mix, conferees such as Carly Fiorina, who last was scene riding the rails out of Silicon Valley with a boxcar full of dough after causing a revolution at HP that set the company back 10 years.  Not only did she manage to alienate the talent at acquired Compaq, Inc., she pleaded for patience with her branded value-added integrators while her henchman began violating non-compete agreements and offering the integrators customers cheaper deals if they did business directly with HP.

And just to add to the list of lobbyists that performed hawking acts for EADS (European hoover.jpgAeronautic and Defence Co.) and now strategically placed among the McCain election campaign.  (A recent article dicussing McCain’s role in the Pentagon’s choice of Airbus to displace US Based Boeing to build the next military tanker plane here) and we can see a seond coming of the Royalists that could spin FDR in his grave. John McCain, while not as lucid as Herbert Hoover, does share his lack of tact, as evidenced by his Gregorian chant speaking style which is compounded by his lackluster thinking style.  We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.

Ridiculous Comparisons – McCain and Clinton Share the Stage

“… claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken”

If you want to see the real John McCain – search the Internet for dialogues that can’t bemccainhat.jpg rehearsed and speeches that aren’t written by others – so that you can get a glimpse of the his lack of information, knowledge of history and feel for governance.  For instance, recently, although soft-balled by the corporate media, John McCain equated the occupation and invasion of Iraq with the continued US presence in Japan, Korea and Germany.

We were dumbstruck with the lack of critical challenge from the cowering corporate media in this barely conscious allegory, instead of the obvious comparison to Viet Nam.  A war that was not victorious, an occupation that remained bloody and a political battle that empowered the military industrial complex pricisely the way President Eisenhower warned in his farewell address.

hillwideeyed.jpgIt is also our opinion that the Democratic Party’s lack of unity and Hillary Clinton’s recent symbolic embrace of her friend John McCain’s leadership, was a dangerous and offensive slap in the face not to her intended victim, Barack Obama, but to the Democratic party at large.  It is the Clinton Campaign’s ‘anything goes’ / ‘kitchen sink’ styled attack that reveals a similar danger in Hillary Clinton’s leadership style.

Recent gaffes about Bosnia and mistakingly promoting that her landing party was under attack or taking sniper fire during a trip in the late 90’s was characterized as misspeaking.hillarybosnia.jpg We beg to differ.  Misspeaking is when one mispronounces someone’s name, or attributes the wrong person to a quote.  Both the person and the quote exist in fact.  Misremembering is something quite different and should be subject to every scrutiny on this matter and other matters where she has claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken. Mistaken is a mild way of characterizing a little girl and flowers as sniper fire.

No one has suggested that she has to have combat experience to be able to capably be our Nation’s civilian Command-in-Chief.  We do think this was an attempt to further her claims of being tested.  While we understand that her campaign thought the tag-line would be a good tool against Obama’s relative newness on the National political scene, it has yet to be substantiated.

Clinton / McCain: Blowing Smoke Up Your Eyes

Delta Force Farce Flap

“… an alarming self-aggrandizing memory lapse.”

By now everyone has heard or read the Hillary Clinton got a little confused about hillpenn.jpgsomething that she may have watched at the movies,  A simple review of the news accounts from the period showed Chelsea accompanying her as well as comedian / performer Sindbad, who coincidentally, contradicted her multiple accounts.  Fair enough, she misspoke about a flawed recollection and also embellished a little about it in her memoir.  Of and in itself, not really a big deal, although an alarming self-aggrandizing memory lapse.

  “… that McCain had solicited the endorsement had completely slipped John McCain’s mind.”

macainhagee.jpgSpeaking of memory lapse, John McCain recently suggested that he couldn’t see how Barack Obama could distance himself from the assertions of Rev. Wright, since he remained a member of Trinity Church; completely forgetting that after hugging the porcine Christo-Fascist Rev. Hagee,  he defended criticisms by invoking that he didn’t agree with many of Hagee’s beliefs and shouldn’t be held accountable for things the Pastor believes that he (McCain) does not believe.

About a week later, the revelation (pardon the expression) that McCain had solicited the endorsement had completely slipped John McCain’s mind, and although the portly Rev. Hagee has made numerous public statements affirming that McCain’s people sought his endorsement, McCain is still a little foggy.

 White House or Bust

“… Clinton is willing to completely polarize the Democratic Party …”

whitehouse.jpg

What is a big deal though, is the harsh negativity and half truths that Team Hillary has introduced into this race for the Democratic nomination, that has many wondering to what end?  It’s as though the greater Team Clinton is willing to completely polarize the Democratic Party in order to win a Presidency that clearly does not appear to be within her legitimate grasp.

McCain and Hillary have much more in common than their memory lapses.  They both represent powerful interests that are bent on re-securing the power of the White House that has spiraled out of good public opinion. For McCain its the NeoCon empire of Right Wing extremists that he’s been willing to embrace in order that he can occupy the White House.

McCain’s Hand at Fiction

“Unfit for commmand??  We believe he’s unfit to use a remote control.”

A week after John McCain has reported (just short of using the term swimmingly) that things are getting better in Iraq – Baghdad violence surges and no less than 2 major military agreements are in ruin.  Certainly he took no heed in the fact that the shopping trip he went on with 100 troops and two Blackhawk helicopters in tow last year was not possible this trip because of increased violence.  Yet, his words told us of improvement.

Unfit for command??  We believe he’s unfit to use a remote control.

Admittedly, McCain is not a brain surgeon.  He’s not an accountant, nor a Constitutional expert.  What then is he?  We’ll leave that to the electorate that are still cheering him regardless of the fact that he may be worse than more of the same.  If you’ve been here before, you know that we think that John McCain is nuts. Tin Foil Hat Nuts.  We’re not alone.  <How Insane is John McCain? – here>

John McCain: Liar, Lunatic or Lamprey

20 Mar 08, San Jose, CA; The Almost Daily Binx; by Binx101

McCain Conflates Insurgents and Al Quaeda

In a stunning series of misstatements, lapses in reality or purposeful conflation of competing violent forces, John McCain has been regularly misinforming anyone who will lmccaintux.jpgisten, about the facts on the ground in Iraq.  Simply stated – he just makes stuff up.  Chaperoned by Lindsay Graham and Joe Lieberman, McCain repeatedly has been making misstatements about actual facts to the amazement of his detractors and the chagrin of his supporters for nearly four years since he first hugged George Bush, made up with Jerry Falwell and broke loaves with Pat Robertson. However, his penchant for malapropism and his unique and somewhat disconnected style has seemed to heighten since he accepted the endorsement of the Catholic hating and Race baiting porcine preacher, Pastor John Hagee.

Neo Con Broadcast Flotilla: Search and Rescue

The Ultra-conservative story telling newsies have been exercising their free speech with Naval precision and have created a gale force wind to power what appears to a right wing spokes-model regatta in order to elevate the diminutive McCain to honorary Admiral of regatta.jpgthe Neo Con Navy.

The corporate news media has given him so much coverage on his recent trip to Iraq, Israel and the UK, that we at The Almost Daily Binx have deduced that this was a campaign strategy that actually permitted McCain to use public funds in order to keep him in the news while the Democratic slugfest gets uglier.  All in all, not a bad strategy, playing by the rules.  Kudo’s for McCain’s ingenious use of life-support.

The Sucking Fish

That’s how a lamprey feeds.  It’s known as the sucking fish.  Some don’t even think that the jawless creature should even should be considered, in a traditional  sense, a true fish.   We feel the same way about lamprey.jpgJohn McCain.  He’s not actually a people’s candidate, he’s more like the candidate that is most likely to continue the policies and prop up the protagonists of the current Supreme Court appointed President.

We think he’s very much the land version of this distinct fish.  His recent reversal on torture was without question a lamprey defining moment.  His recent series of … untruths … about the devastation in Iraq, and his callous disregard for life in the region and his expressionless recital of invertabrate William Krystol’s talking points is further evidence of a fish that isn’t really a fish.

The King of Iraq: “… Good to be back …”

-17 Mar 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA; by Binx1o1

The King’s New Clothes and Old Advisers

 “… Financial  Adviser – Haleeb Ehrton …”

austincheney1.jpgCompleting a meeting with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, His Highness King Pin, father of modern Iraq, described delight in what he views as ‘phenomenal’ changes and ‘dramatic improvements in security.  Then, without assistance, he walked among the people while he quietly spoke in tongues to a higher power.   The King also conferred with his Chief Financial Adviser – Haleeb Ehrton and his Chief War Adviser  Balak Wutah.  “So, so very good to be back”  He was greeted by throngs of US Military who immediately covered him in Kevlar warming attire so he wouldn’t be chilled.

 

 Joined by Beltway Magi

“… and Prince Olderndirt …”

The King’s visit was preceded by a completely coincidental visit to the area of his threestooges1.jpg adopted sons, all Princes, otherwise known as the Beltway Magi. Prince Indy, Prince Hokey, and Prince Olderndirt have come home in order to buy photographs, or sell photographs or some type of opportunity having to do with photography.  Reports remain unclear.

King Pin says, “Heckuva Job”

“… he could hardly recognize the place …”

Security measures were elevated and current violence reduced ‘5 bombs-a-day’ to ‘0 bombs-a-day’ in the Green Zone in honor of the King’s visit and the super-surprise visit of the 71 year old Prince Olderndirt, looking over investments that he expects to be viable for the next 100 years. Hokey and Indie are visiting in order to buy rugs.

King Pin, also known in the West simply as – Dick – commended the contractors and military alike for their bravery and hard work.  Fox News reported him saying he could hardly recognize the place.  A sentiment most often expressed by native Iraqis on a regular basis.

John McCain: Owned by the NeoCon Empire

15 Mar 08, The Almost Daily Binx, San Jose, CA – by Binx101

McCain Town Hall Meeting – Set Ups

“… Strawman dialogue currently under development at NeoCon hate laboratories …”

The NeoCon extreme right is going to start with their own version of  the ‘Kitchen Sink’. mccain-passing-the-buck.jpg For example – John McCain’s meeting in Pennsylvania  – fears that al Qaeda or another extremist group might attempt spectacular attacks in Iraq to try to tilt the U.S. election against him.  This was in response to an obviously planted question in Springfield, PA, regarding whether or not McCain is concerned about foriegn extremists helping get Democrats elected in the US.  Yes… read it again …. that’s what we wrote.

American’s better get used to this type of new Strawman dialogue currently under development at NeoCon hate laboratories all over the US.  This is only the beginning.  We haven’t even gotten to the actual contest … this is just the warm-ups.

McCain – Unfit for Presidency

“A combat pilot and a descendant of a long line of distinguished Naval heroes notwithstanding, we think John McCain is demonstrably unfit to be President.”

John McCain vociferously contested US use of torture, but then, as if out of the blue, changed his tune and voted against the torture ban.  Why?

The answer isn’t complicated at all.  In fact, its very simple.  John McCain has written in his own memoir and has been endlessly quoted about his personal experience, having broken warningmccain.jpgunder torture.  But alas, he’s also been very clear in repeated statements that torture does not work.  Okay then, which is it?

Our vote is that McCain is Mad.  Not Mad as in angry, not Mad as in Mad Magazine … no were thinking of  Mad as  in the Tin Foil Hat denomination. He’s a man of extremes.  Black or White.  ON or OFF.  Hot or Cold. Angry or Smiling. And subject to change his mind at the drop of hat, but more likely at the drop of check or endorsement.

We should be very afraid of a McCain presidency.  If one thinks that George W. Bush was the perfect front man for NeoCon masters – he’s a total amateur next to this genuine war survivor – who has actually done the things that Bush imagines he’s done himself.  He’s been in command.  A combat pilot and a descendant of a long line of distinguished Naval heroes notwithstanding, we think John McCain is demonstrably unfit to be President.

He’s changed his opinions with reckless abandon.  Can you imagine anything more clearly representative of dementia than John McCain, a tortured prisonerjm.jpg of war,  reversing himself and embracing torture as a viable tool of Democracy.  We can’t.  Further, we think its the big tip-off that the man has gone totally mad.

We’re not fooled by set-up Town Hall questions or an enthusiastic group of Neanderthals that think that we should occupy Iraq for the next 100 years.  Sorry – thanks for your service – but with all due respect – take a seat.
