Charlotte Observer Obama media arm, Media bias example, Times of “1984”, Praises Jim Pendergraph one minute then attacks him, Orwellian two minute hate

“we give our nod to Mecklenburg County commissioner Jim Pendergraph. We believe he has broad appeal and understands the district’s needs best. He speaks with a strong conservative voice but seems pragmatic in how he would represent the district – focusing on constituent needs and getting things done.”…Charlotte Observer April 28, 2012

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it”…Joseph Goebbels

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Despite the fact that what the Charlotte Observer has done in Orwellian, Joseph Goebbels fashion to demonize Jim Pendergraph and Sheriff Joe Arpaio after praising Pendergraph in an endorsement, disgusts me, I would like to thank the Observer for providing one of the clearest examples of media bias and “1984” thought control. I began quoting Orwell regularly in early 2008. Images of “1984” and Nazi Germany abounded. The similarities to the Obama camp were and are striking .

For example, note how the Charlotte Observer first praises Jim Pendergraph in their endorsement.

From the Charlotte Observer April 28, 2012.

“But we give our nod to Mecklenburg County commissioner Jim Pendergraph. We believe he has broad appeal and understands the district’s needs best. He speaks with a strong conservative voice but seems pragmatic in how he would represent the district – focusing on constituent needs and getting things done.

He did sign a no-tax increases pledge and said he would focus on spending cuts. But he said he would consider taxes if “every other way possible” was tried and failed to reduce the deficit and get the economy going.

Pendergraph gained national exposure as sheriff for his leadership in the 287(g) program, which allows local officials to enforce federal immigration laws. He was the first sheriff east of California to use the controversial program. But his views on immigration reform are more nuanced. He favors both enforcement and reforms that would allow the immigrant workers that the country needs to be able to work here. The issue should be dealt with in a “common-sense” way, he says.

Pendergraph’s long experience as a public servant, especially his 12 years as Mecklenburg County sheriff, would be an asset. He understands the value of service to constituents and responding quickly and efficiently to their cares and concerns.

This race has been marred by negative advertising, largely aimed at Pendergraph from GOP challenger Robert Pittenger, a former state lawmaker. Those ads and the sniping back and forth at debates distracted attention from the candidates’ records and positions. The people in the 9th district deserved better. We hope the candidates will give them better in the waning days of this primary season. If not, voters should remember that in the voting booth.”

Next, after Jim Pendergraph mildly questions Obama.

From the Charlotte Observer May 3, 2012.

“What a run for Republican Jim Pendergraph. After winning the Observer’s endorsement in his bid for Congress, he has done nothing but embarrass us and himself.

By buddying up to one of America’s more hateful egomaniacs and then joining with fringe “birthers” to question President Obama’s citizenship, Pendergraph has contradicted much of what he told the Observer’s editorial board in his endorsement interview last month. As a result, we have lost faith in him, and urge voters to consider Edwin Peacock or Ric Killian in the 9th Congressional District race.”

“Then he rallied in Huntersville with Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Melvillian character on a never-ending crusade against Latinos. The only thing that energizes Arpaio more than stroking his ego is profiling Hispanics. The U.S. Justice Department found Arpaio led “a pervasive culture of discriminatory bias against Latinos” and one expert in the report said Arpaio led the worst racial profiling in U.S. history.

Pendergraph pandered further this week by saying he has “reason to be suspicious” about whether President Obama was born in the United States. “… Generally when there’s smoke, there’s got to be fire somewhere,” he said, even as he acknowledged “I haven’t seen the facts.”

It all gives one the sense that Pendergraph will say whatever a given audience wants to hear, if it will help him get elected. That makes how he would act in Congress a mystery.”

From “1984” by George Orwell.

“The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.

As usual, the face of Emmanuel Goldstein, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen. There were hisses here and there among the audience. The little sandy-haired woman gave a squeak of mingled fear and disgust. Goldstein was the renegade and backslider who once, long ago (how long ago, nobody quite remembered), had been one of the leading figures of the Party, almost on a level with Big Brother himself, and then had engaged in counter-revolutionary activities, had been condemned to death, and had mysteriously escaped and disappeared. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party’s purity. All subsequent crimes against the Party, all treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his teaching.”

I happened to witness some reactions to Jim Pendergraph questioning Obama and the Charlotte Observer discrediting him. Though not as vehement as some in “1984”, they were just as party programmed and automatic.

    The fact is that bo forged his BC and Selective Service documents. bo and his criminal co-conspirators committed crimes. bo’s NBC status is irrelevant. Forgery is a crime regardless of the motive.


    The Wall St. Journal is reporting;

    “Consider the events surrounding the operation. A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president’s celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: “The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out.”

    Which is to say, if the mission went wrong, the fault would be Adm. McRaven’s, not the president’s. Moreover, the president does not seem to have addressed at all the possibility of seizing material with intelligence value—which may explain his disclosure immediately following the event not only that bin Laden was killed, but also that a valuable trove of intelligence had been seized, including even the location of al Qaeda safe-houses. That disclosure infuriated the intelligence community because it squandered the opportunity to exploit the intelligence that was the subject of the boast.”

    What would Obama have said if the mission was a failure? Or would we have heard nothing at all? Just the crickets chirping…

  3. Free Speech

    Since February of 2009, I have advocated for Grand Jury Indictments of bo and his local Co-Conspirators. Sheriff Joe’s investigation of bo’s crimes must be replicated in local County Courts throughout the US. That is the way that we Patriots can take our Country back.

    “The second question is “Will the Supreme Court of the United States of America bow to Obama and give up its co-equal status to the dictator as the US Congress has already done?” If so, perhaps its time for We-the-People to recruit the Honduran Supreme Court who, along with their military, ousted its then President Manuel Zelaya who had become a dictator. Oppression under the Obama syndicate becomes worse each and every day, folks. Will we ever choose to go back to the sunshine?”

    “In Obama’s economy, and very leadership style, we detect a socialist-styled elitism which deigns to break down reality to its very core definitions. For instance, a “successful” economy is not one which employs the highest number of people, or creates the greatest GDP. Instead, “successful” economics produces the largest amount of socialist “change.” This means a radical reconfiguring of capitalism, productivity and wealth across socialist approved values. Here, rich members must disgorge “stolen” material goods and power, while the entire economy shrinks, as government grows into a behemoth. The State then officially is unveiled as God.”

    “What Does ‘Composite Girl’ Tell Us About Obama?”

    “Within hours after Dylan Byers of Politico created a mini-firestorm on Wednesday with the article titled “Obama: ‘New York girlfriend’ was composite,” David Graham of the Atlantic had all but smothered the flames with his article, “Obama’s Composite Girlfriend: How Politico and Drudge Created Fake News.”

    Graham argued that since Obama owned up to using composite characters in the forward of the book in question, his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, there was nothing shady about the practice. Not surprisingly, Graham overlooked the real problem. So did Byers. So did veteran Washington Post reporter David Maraniss, whose forthcoming book, Obama: The Story, ignited the controversy when it was excerpted in Vanity Fair. No, the real problem with Dreams is the inexcusable dishonesty throughout the book. The promiscuous use of composites is merely a symptom of the larger problem.”


    “… virtually all of the historical photos of himself, his mother, father, grandparents, extended African families, and places he allegedly attended were faked within the past five years. “Photo ‘Lie’ography shows you the various ways to fake shadows, environments, people, and actions. It contains over 120 annotated photos on how to fake a family album and biography with doctored photos.”

  8. Obama’s Executive Order titled “America’s Great Outdoors Initiative” is perhaps one of the most dangerous utilateral decisions he has made during his presidency. It basically opens vast expanses of land to the government, placating enviornmental wackos, and making more land unavailable to private (that is capitalist) interests. It all smells to high heaven.

    So we have arrived at 2012 . . . and Obama still remains a mystery. He has committed fraud at least twice with his so-called “birth certificate” in public. Sheriff Arpaio has pulled much together. Obama is an “invention” by some very evil people, Soros, etc. It is critical to the Repubic and the Constitution that the next President, Attorney General, and FBI Director open a full investigation into Obama and his appointees. As long as the extreme Left dominates the Democratic Party and the US mainstream media – America is at risk. Having fought communism on three continents for 20-years, there is no hope on the Left for Mankind – just poverty and misery.

    Mitt Romney is as close to a perfect candidate as we are going to get.

    So let us put away all thoughts of strife and disagreement. All wishful thinking and illusions. The real world beckons. There is no place for the ideal in this conflict. We will have other and better opportunities. For good or ill, Romney is the man of the hour. The only thing of importance is to defeat Obama and everything he stands for.

    Stanford University’s David Cheriton, who is worth almost $2-billion according to Fortune magazine, believes that innovative and creative American entrepreneurs are being driven out of the country by Obama’s fiscal policies.

    Cheriton told BBC: “When you look at, say, Larry and Sergey of Google, they made billions of dollars, but they contributed many more billions of dollars to the US economy. And so we should be empowering these people; we should be cultivating more of the next generation of those types. And yet, I think there’s almost a hostile attitude towards people who have been successful in this country.”

  16. Free Speech

    According to my source, there is talk among the highest levels of the uppermost echelon of the Department of Homeland Security, which he describes as effectively under the control of Barack Hussein Obama. During this call, he said that the DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that “a civil war” is the more appropriate term. Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it,” stated my source.

    “The DHS takes their marching orders from the Obama administration, from Obama himself, but mostly from his un-appointed czars. And Jarrett, especially Valerie Jarrett. Don’t think for a minute that the administration is doing anything to stabilize events in the U.S. They are revolutionaries, and revolutionaries thrive on chaos,” he added.

  17. Free Speech

    “The Obama administration and many of the un-elected ‘czars,’ either directly or indirectly, are engaged in covert activities with the occupy movement, various labor protests, and other subversive activities inside the U.S.,” stated my source. Using untracked campaign funds, they are paying people to infiltrate the various movements to cause physical destruction of property and disrupt commerce. That began last year, but has increased ten-fold already this year,” stated this source. He added that they are using some lower level DHS agents to make the payments under the context of tracking subversives, but they are the unwitting subversives. “It’s like Fast & Furious” but in the social realm,” he added.

    “Obama is using some high profile people as pawns to foment the revolution. I heard several times through very credible sources that [Louis] Farrakhan is on the CIA payroll. Other have been named as well, but I’m not prepared to identify them yet. Farrakhan is to coordinate the Blacks and the Muslims to prepare for riots this summer, using any means necessary.”

    “Mentioned at the meeting Saturday were methods to use pawns to simulate the rioting in the Arab Spring countries, but to the benefit of this administration. A controlled chaos thing,” stated my source. They envision rioting starting in the urban areas first, such as New York and other major cities, followed by a disruption of business and commerce. This will allow the DHS to mobilize their various teams into the streets of America without objection of the people,” stated my source.

    “They want to restrict travel, if not through high energy prices, then by checkpoints and curfews mandated by rioting and unrest. They understand we are the most well-armed nation in the world, yet they are aware of our vulnerabilities and intend to fully exploit them,” he added. The whole purpose is to keep Obama in office for another term, no matter how unpopular he is, as he is not finished changing our country from a Constitutional Republic. This is the run-up to the 2012 elections, or perhaps causing enough chaos to delay them – indefinitely.”

    With the release of the REAL unemployment figures above 11%, Zero’s picked a rather inauspicious time to ‘officially’ start his re-election campaign.

    And it would appear America is finally catching on to the lies, broken promises, hypocrisy, and rhetoric he spews non-stop.

    Jobless youngheads who voted for him in 2008 are finding the views from their parents’ basement windows depressing.

    I’ve heard many say they’ve noticed how he hasn’t kept promises, they don’t have jobs, etc. But think this will really push them to try the most risk taking, desperate things they can imagine out of fear of losing…”attempted” assassination, some “crisis” so they can declare martial law (no elections) in addition to their present plans to steal the elections like they always have, etc.

    I’m still waiting to find out if someone out there like Breitbart or Drudge will release the info re that rigged Spanish company counting/reporting votes, what happens to the birth certificate deal (more Repubs. coming out and saying they don’t think it’s legitimate either), that huge story about Obama, CA AG & the banks scam.

  27. “Did Obama Biographer David Maraniss Have Obama’s Long-Form Birth Certificate In 2008?”
    By Kris Zane

    “What the video above focuses on, however, is an odd statement that Maraniss made on C-SPAN in August of 2008 after writing an extensive biographical article about Obama in the Washington Post. He states, unequivocally, after being asked about the controversy surrounding Obama’s birthplace, that he was in possession of Obama’s birth certificate, to which at this point no one had been given physical possession of, even, which was allowed to photograph and examine it, but not keep. His statement also seems to indicate that the birth certificate he had in possession was the LONG-FORM birth certificate, which was not released until April 27, 2011, in that he intimates the birth certificate indicates that Kapiolani was the birth hospital, of which the short-form does not indicate.”

  28. “Obama’s Conn. Social Security Number hits Rush”

    “While speaking with a caller named Rob about Obama’s alleged deception of citizens, Limbaugh tossed out the question: “What are your thoughts on the fact Obama’s Social Security Number is from Connecticut and he’s never been there?”

    Rob responded, “That’s what you call a red flag. A red flag is also, ‘First of all, I don’t need to give you my birth certificate,’ and then finally, ‘I’ll give you a copy,’ Oh, that’s a modern copy … We don’t need copies, we need originals.”

    Rob continued, “How about releasing all of your college papers and let’s see what you really thought about America when you were in college? He’s deceiving us.”

    Rob had originally focused on Obama’s birth certificate, which Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has investigated and believes is a likely forgery.”

  29. Click to access USArmy-InternmentResettlement.pdf


    A leaked U.S. Army document prepared for the Department of Defense contains shocking plans for “political activists” to be pacified by “PSYOP officers” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.
    The document, entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF) was originally released on a restricted basis to the DoD in February 2010, but has now been leaked online.
    The manual outlines policies for processing detainees into internment camps both globally and inside the United States. International agencies like the UN and the Red Cross are named as partners in addition to domestic federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.
    The document makes it clear that the policies apply “within U.S. territory” and involve, “DOD support to U.S. civil authorities for domestic emergencies, and for designated law enforcement and other activities,” including “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.”
    The manual states, “These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,” and adds that “The authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,” would require a “special exception” to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via “the President invoking his executive authority.” The document also makes reference to identifying detainees using their “social security number.”
    Aside from enemy combatants and other classifications of detainees, the manual includes the designation of “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”
    Once the detainees have been processed into the internment camp, the manual explains how they will be “indoctrinated,” with a particular focus on targeting political dissidents, into expressing support for U.S. policies.
    The re-education process is the responsibility of the “Psychological Operations Officer,” whose job it is to design “PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations,” according to the document.
    The manual lists the following roles that are designated to the “PSYOP team”.
    – Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
    – Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
    – Identifies political activists.
    – Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).
    – Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.
    – Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.
    Remember, this is not restricted to insurgents in Iraq who are detained in prison camps – the manual makes it clear that the policies also apply “within U.S. territory” under the auspices of the DHS and FEMA. The document adds that, “Resettlement operations may require large groups of civilians to be quartered temporarily (less than 6 months) or semipermanently (more than 6 months).”
    The historical significance of states using internment camps to re-educate detainees centers around the fact that it is almost exclusively practiced by repressive and dictatorial regimes like the former Soviet Union and Stalinist regimes like modern day North Korea.
    We have exhaustively documented preparations for the mass internment of citizens inside America, but this is the first time that language concerning the re-education of detainees, in particular political activists, has cropped up in our research.
