Media shamefully pro-Palestine in coverage of Israel/Gaza conflict

 

In watching the media coverage, one would be hard pressed to believe this conflict is the fault of Hamas. Every article focuses on the human suffering in Gaza strip, without laying any of the blame at the feet of the designated terrorist group Hamas.

"These are the time that try men's souls, and many people will shrink from service of their country at these times," Glenn said on radio.

"Last night I'm watching CNN and Anderson Cooper he's standing there and he's wearing the flack jacket, and things are really tough. I wonder where he is? He's in Gaza. He's in Gaza City, and he's talking about how bad the Israelis bombings have been on the people in the Gaza Strip, and then Dick (Don?) Lemmon, and he gets in on 'Anderson hang on just a second, and we have somebody else we want to talk to. We go to the head of the PLO.'"

"Am I watching al-Jazeera? Or am I watching American television?" Glenn said.

"The Israelis don't have a prayer. They don't have a prayer. If this is really where you're going."

"We're living in amazing times. We're living in a time where the whole world can change. And the whole world can change for the better. I happen to believe that Egypt is on a suicide mission. And I happen to believe that the Syria is on a suicide mission. Jordan is unfortunately going to be a casualty."

"In the last three years Hamas has launched more rockets than Germany launched into London in World War II," Glenn said. "Nobody is reporting what Hamas has done to Israel is more than what Germany did to London. But they say those rockets don't do any damage. Excuse me? How do they get away with that?"

"I've worked in the mainstream media. I have taken on the fierce, fierce enemies. I have spoken truth to power at the highest levels. There is nothing in in my career that has been harder than saying the truth I stand with Israel. That Israel is not the aggressor. There is nothing more difficult. It is phenomenal to see it in action. When we did The Agenda Exposed at CNN, you wouldn't believe the hoops that we had to climb through to be able to show you the exact videotape coming from the Arab world. The propaganda against the Israelis, the Jews and the Americans."

Glenn and Stu both remembered that it was very difficult to speak up in defense of Israel at both CNN and FOX News. Glenn said that at CNN almost everything had to be cleared through the Arab desk.

Glenn criticized the spin being used by the mainstream media, noting that stories are focusing on how many have been killed by the Israelis and not the terrorist group Hamas. Instead, the media says that Hamas is being disciplined in their rocket attacks.

In order to show support for Israel, Glenn and Mercury One have been providing relief to Israel with donations and needed supplies.

"We did something controversial over the weekend," Glenn said, "I'm going to continue that controversy here. We believe that those who stand with Israel are on the right side. I don't know what happens to those people but they're on the right side. That's what I believe."

"When we started Mercury One, one of the things we had under its umbrella was Israel."

"I found out on Friday. I got a desperate call. They can't afford the planes to continue to run, and they can't afford the pilots to stay out by the planes. Do you remember when we were in the Cold War they had to have the planes running all the time. It's very expensive."

"At Ramat David Air Force base we found out they had that need. So we wire transferred some money over to them. The planes are running, and the pilots have a place to stay at the planes because of Mercury One."

Glenn said Mercury One has also donated money to members of the IDF who need winter weather clothes because they are up in the cold regions of Israel. Glenn has also donated money to help buy an emergency vehicle for a hospital in Israel.

"We're doing everything we can, and putting our money where our mouth is," Glenn said.

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
