TheBlaze.com, The Blaze, Glenn Beck website, August 31, 2010, Huffington Post competition

From the Washington Post August 31, 2010.

“Conservative Fox News host Glenn Beck, a frequent critic of the mainstream news media, has launched his own news site, The Blaze. The site appears to be modeled after The Huffington Post and not surprisingly, features stories with a conservative bent about some of Beck’s favorite issues, such as faith, terrorism, the imam behind the planned Islamic community center in New York City and Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday.

The site, which went live sometime Monday, features a welcome message from the man himself, timestamped just before midnight Tuesday:
If you are like me, watching the news or reading the paper can be an exercise in exasperation. It’s so hard to find a place that helps me make sense of the world I see.

Too many important stories are overlooked. And too many times we see mainstream media outlets distorting facts to fit rigid agendas. Not that you’ve ever heard me complain about the media before. Okay, maybe once or twice.

But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and do something. And so we decided to hire some actual journalists to launch a new website — The Blaze. And we moved fast. We built the team and the site in just two months.
What was the overlooked story that Beck chose to lead with in the inaugural edition? Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s alleged encouragement of Education Department employees to attend the Rev. Al Sharpton’s Saturday counter-rally, at which Duncan spoke.”

I have a suggestion for Glenn Beck. How about covering Obama’s eligibility problems.

Glenn Beck, call me.

Chicago to Amsterdam flight, United Airlines, Ahmed Mohamed Nasser and Hezem al Murisi arrested, Preparation of a terrorist attack, August 31, 2010

Chicago to Amsterdam flight, United Airlines, Ahmed Mohamed Nasser and Hezem al Murisi arrested

From ABC News.
“Two men taken off a Chicago-to-Amsterdam United Airlines flight in the Netherlands have been charged by Dutch police with “preparation of a terrorist attack,” U.S. law enforcement officials tell ABC News.

U.S. officials said the two appeared to be travelling with what were termed “mock bombs” in their luggage. “This was almost certainly a dry run, a test,” said one senior law enforcement official.

A spokesman for the Dutch public prosecutor, Ernst Koelman, confirmed the two men were arrested this morning and said “the investigation is ongoing.” He said the arrests were made “at the request of American authorities.”

The two were allowed to board the flight at O’Hare airport last night despite security concerns surrounding one of them, the officials said.

The men were identified as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi, of Detroit, MI, and Hezem al Murisi, the officials said. A neighbor of al Soofi told ABC News he is from Yemen.”

Las Vegas Tea Party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, First Amendment Rights, US Constitution, Citizen journalism, Video

I have never gotten so much satisfaction assembling an article as I did producing this one. This article is the culmination of efforts of concerned Americans across this country and certainly those that participate on this blog. A special thanks goes to commenter JoyceAZ, who cared enough about this country to travel to the Las Vegas Tea Party, take photos and write a report. Thank God that she did. The story was barely touched by the local media in Las Vegas and the Main Stream media nationwide.

“CW,  We arrived at the park 8:45am.  This area was large.  The parking lot filled up by 10:30.  People were coming and going for 2-3 hrs.  People were very warm and friendly.  WE WERE UNITED. The people were from Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho…… (licenses plates that we noticed).
All day long people gave each other the thumbs up.  We The People are UNITED IN OUR MARCH TO WAKE UP THE GOVERNMENT.
We just want to be heard.  Our Freedoms are being tread on.  OUR FLAGS SAY: Don’t Tread On Me.  We will not be UNHEARD.
 
We did not see any riots.  No screaming, yelling or fighting.  We did not see any opposition,….. ACORN, SEIU, or other pro-Obama voices.
Several cars stopped and ask us what was happening,…. as they had not heard of this project on the local tv channels.  I told them that it was 98% created thru the internet and twitter and such.  The NEWS MEDIA is DEAD!  Even those would stop and go sign up for information on OUR PROJECT. 
The Las Vegas Review-Journal quoted that the count was 800-900.  I truly feel is was much larger than that.  The parking lot was filled at all times….. people would be waiting for a parking spot.  People arriving faster than leaving.
I don’t think I would be exaggerating to say it was closer to 1500+.  I am sending a few articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  They have some interesting articles about dirty harry. He is not very popular at this time. 
 
JoyceAZ”

I hope that the actions of JoyceAZ were as inspiring to you as they are to me and will inspire more people to take action. We cannot depend on the modern day media to do so.

I sang the song that plays in the video when I was young.

It moved me deeply then and even more now.

Las Vegas NV tea party, August 31, 2009, Tea Party Express, Citizen Wells report, Sports Center of Las Vegas, Nevada, Will CNN and MSM cover this tea party?

Yesterday, the Citizen Wells Blog posted the announcement of a Tea Party to be held today, Monday, August 31, 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. We have a reporter on the scene and will provide updates as we get them. CNN is supposed to have their CNN Express news bus on the scene in Nevada and hopefully other media outlets will cover this story. Will Harry Reid pay attention?

Thanks Upstate Warrior for this video link:

*** Update from the local Fox affiliate (this was very brief)  September 1, 8:30 ET ***

“Rally Held Against Big Government
Las Vegans Hold Tea Party Rally

POSTED: 5:48 pm PDT August 31, 2009

Hundreds of people protested in Las Vegas against what they characterized as big government.

 Those who turned out at the Sports Center of Las Vegas Monday for the Tea Party Rally criticized what they call big government — things like bailouts and deficit spending — as they waved signs.

*** Update from on the scene reporter – September 1, 2009 5:30 PM ET ***

“CW,  We were at the Party from 8:45am to 2:00pm.”

“We were there first.”

“We were not allowed to be by the grandstand,… due to our signs.  THEY WERE ANTI OBAMA.  The organizer said that the media would have a hay-day with them.  (ridiculous to say the least….. XXXX (my husband was HOT!)  I WILL SEND YOU PICS OF THEM”

Look for more pictures soon. 

 
Here is the announcement from yesterday:
“ATTENTION NEVADANS: We need your urgent help!
 
We here at the Tea Party Express have been informed by several national news media outlets that they will be on hand to cover our “Tea Party Express” rally in Las Vegas, Nevada this Monday, August 31st at 11:00 AM.  The rally will be held at the Sports Center of Las Vegas (located at 121 E. Sunset Road).
 
We know this is not the most convenient time for some people to attend a rally, but we simply must have a huge crowd on hand.  To help underscore why this is so important, consider this:  CNN is planning on having their CNN Express news bus.  Some news outlets will be broadcasting live.  We can’t afford to have a rally with a small crowd on hand (especially given how successful the “Tea Party Express” rallies have been so far these first two days).
 
So we need your help.  If you live close enough to Las Vegas to attend the rally (even if you have to take an early lunch) then PLEASE make it to the rally.  Load up your car with as many people as you can.
 
If you live too far away, or absolutely cannot attend, then we need your help to get the word out.  Forward this email on to everyone you know.  Post messages to online discussion forums and blogs.  Call anyone and everyone you know who lives in or near Las Vegas.
