The American news media function more as a propaganda organ for the Democratic Party than do they as a serious source for unbiased news. American news media view events through the eyes of racists, attempting to stir racist passions whenever a story presents such an opportunity, whether or not the allegation of "racism" is justified. A classic case in point is the contrast between the national story of Trayvon Martin's death and the national non-story of brutal beatings, rape, and murder by a young Black man of a White couple in Oklahoma last month.
The Tyrone Woodfork Non-Story:
In late March, Mr. "Tyrone Woodfork, 20, was charged in Tulsa County District Court with felony first-degree murder, two counts of robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary." (see Tulsa World article by Jerry Wofford, World Staff Writer).
Woodfork severely beat an elderly couple (married for 65 years) and raped the woman who subsequently died of her injuries. The husband had served during WWII in the 101st Airborne.
Woodfork is Black.
His elderly victims are White.
There was zero national news coverage of the story. Evidently, it does not fit the propaganda narrative of major national news outlets.
Search the Associated Press website for any story about "Tyrone Woodfork" or simply Google the name and you will find absolutely no national coverage! To the agenda-driven propagandizing "lame stream" media, it is a non-story.
The Trayvon Martin Story:
Contrast the story of a crime committed by Tyrone Woodfork with a crime that involved the death of Trayvon Martin. The crime of a young Black man against an elderly White couple is non-news. The crime involving the death of a young Black man at the hands of an Hispanic "White" man has been one of the top national news stories and remains so.
I questioned a good friend living near Wichita, Kansas (about 2-1/2 hours from Tulsa, Oklahoma) about the name Tyrone Woodfork. Had she ever heard the name? The answer was a definite "no". Yet when asked about the name Trayvon Martin (associated with a case half-way across the country in Sanford, Florida), she was saturated with news from the first day after the incident.
It is instructive to note President Obama, not in possession of any relevant facts other than the alleged race of the two men involved, saw fit to call the parents of Trayvon Martin and offer profuse sympathies noting that if he, Obama, had had a son, he would likely "look just like" Trayvon! If the races were reversed and a Hispanic Republican President called the parents of a deceased young Hispanic boy at the hands of a Black man and sympathized with a statement that, if he had a son, he would likely "look just like" the Hispanic victim, the American news media would scream "racism" so loud it would echo round the world! Yet Obama makes the same statement and, once again, it is not considered racist in the least! Why, then, did Obama feel the need to not-so-subtley inject race into his sympathies?
Will President Obama call the husband of Tyrone Woodfork's victim and express his sympathy? Don't hold your breath.
Will President Obama note that, if he had had a son, he would likely "look just like" Tyrone Woodfork?
No, because, you see, Mr. Woodfork's crime wasn't a crime of racism. According to the Left's "new normalism" it is impossible for a Black to commit a racist crime against a White! Progressives, Liberals, Leftists ... whatever you want to call them, simply ignore the Black on White crime (non-news) and obsess over White on Black crime, claiming it is "racist," even when the White is an Hispanic.
No clearer example exists illustrating how today's "news" media are all about agenda propaganda and little about legitimate news.
Another astonishing example of censored news:
On March 1, Sheriff Joe Arpaio (Maricopa County, Arizona) hosted an international news conference (YouTube video, 1 hour, 20 minutes) to reveal interim conclusions of his Cold Case Posse's investigation of citizen complaints relating to the constitutional qualifications of Barack Obama to hold the office of President of the United States. The Sheriff's Posse obtained the electronic document (in PDF format) presented on April 27, 2011 by President Obama as a "true copy" of his long form birth certificate in Hawaii.
After intensive forensic investigation by document and computer fraud experts that involved at least 2200 hours of scrutiny and investigation, WorldNetDaily (online news service) reported Sheriff Arpaio "concluded there is probable cause that the document released by the White House last year as President Obama’s birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery."
Arpaio's March 1 news conference revealed extensive details of the investigation that concluded the document Obama alleged was a "true copy" of his long form birth certificate is a forgery. Yet despite the mountain of evidence presented by the Arpaio Cold Case Posse, representatives of the American news media at the news conference simply ignored the evidence. Neither interest nor outrage was expressed by those American reporters in attendance. Instead, they assumed a mocking attitude and attempted to discredit the investigation, Sheriff Arpaio, and his "Cold Case Posse" of experts. This behavior is not that of objective journalists seeking truth; it is how those participating in a massive cover-up would respond.
You see, the American news media really do not care about truth. Their agenda is to propagandize as much as possible by demeaning any effort to expose truth that would embarrass the Democrat Party or President Obama.
Anyone who questions Obama is either ignored or ridiculed as "racist" or made to look like a fool by branding them "birthers." This is the modus operandi of the American news media who have no defense to allegations that Obama cannot produce a valid birth certificate. They use the same approach when dealing with climate change skeptics by simply branding them "deniers" to avoid actually having to address the scientific issues raised by skeptics.
What is truly sad is that such propagandizing is also occurring on a massive scale in US public schools. Children are not being educated; they are being indoctrinated.
The evidence strongly suggests that, if the House of Representatives conducted a fair hearing on the issue of Obama's citizenship, they would conclude that no compelling evidence exists that demonstrates Barack Obama is a "natural born citizen" as required by our Constitution. In short, a massive fraud unparalleled in US history would be exposed. In any broad ranging investigation, the US news media would be found to be co-conspirators in this massive fraud. It is unlikely that evidence exists that would prove direct involvement in the conspiracy, it is simply not believable that the American news media are merely innocent dupes in this matter, given the evidence and their key role in supporting this fraud.
Finally, consider that the following records are either missing or blocked by Obama from being released to the public:
Missing: a search of Immigration and Naturalization Service travel records for foreign flights into Hawaii during the week (August 1 - August 7, 1961) of Obama's birth, August 4, 1961, discovered that all records for the week of Obama’s birth were missing! This is both highly unusual and an astonishing finding, yet the American news media greeted the revelation with a massive yawn.
Missing (or blocked): Any record of Barry Soetoro (born Barack Hussein Obama) reapplying for US citizenship after being granted Indonesian citizenship so that he could attend school in Indonesia.
Missing (or blocked): Any record of the passport Barry Soetoro used to fly to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents.
Missing (or blocked): Any record of the name change of Barry Soetoro back to his birth name, Barack Hussein Obama.
Blocked: Any record of Obama's application to or transcripts from his early college years at Occidental College (Los Angeles, California).
Blocked: Any record of Obama's application to or transcripts from his time spent at Columbia University in New York City.
Blocked: Any record of Obama's application to or transcripts from his years at Harvard Law School.
Blocked: Obama's law writings that earned him the Presidency of the Harvard Law Review.
Blocked: The true long form birth certificate, supposedly in the archives of the Hawaiian government.
Blocked: The reason behind both Barack and Michelle Obama voluntarily withdrawing from the Illinois Bar and any future chance to practice law in the State of Illinois.
To those who would still defend Obama, ask yourself honestly if you can provide any legitimate rationale for the embargo on Obama's records virtually throughout his entire life, beginning with his birth certificate.
Well, one thing is certain. With so little known about Barack Hussein Obama, when he finally leaves office the Obama Presidential Library need not be any larger than a phone booth.
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
