Brian Williams is what's wrong with American journalism

Brian Williams is the epitome of the mainstream newsmedia. Forget about facts. It's all about what could be facts, should be facts, and reported as facts. A la Dan Rather on George W. Bush: Well, it could be true.... Here's some more that is being reported as just plain lies. This is not making a mistake.

Being robbed at gunpoint as a kid.

Seeing a body floating by in New Orleans.

Being at the Berlin Wall when it fell.

Flying with SEAL Team 6 at start of Iraq war.

Getting a piece of the helicopter from a SEAL Team 6 member that was used in the bin laden raid.
Getting a knife sent to him by a SEAL.

That's not misremembering. That's making up the news, and yes, stealing valor. But Brian Williams is just the tip of the ice burg. We've got the commander in chief doing selfies in a mirror while the world burns, including our "success" in.

We have checked out of reality. It's about entertainment, not doing the right thing.

Our military men and women deserve better.

American Sniper is about a hero

American Sniper has certainly touched a nerve for liberals. Michael Moore, the coward who made a movie about how bad GM was, but bowed to Obama as he gave GM billions.

 American snipers are not cowards. They are heroes. Again, liberals like Moore bow to Obama dropping bombs from an unmanned drone on an unsuspecting house. You will never hear them call out Obama on that. Is that cowardly? Eliminating the enemy is not cowardly. We dropped an atom bomb on Japan. Hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting people. Cowardly? Of course not.

If you choose to be at war with the United States, in any way, shape, or form, be prepared to get killed and eliminated in any way, shape, or form. Period.

The United States military does a thankless job, day in, day out. Cowards they are not.

True cowards hide behind a camera, safe at home, and never have to worry about getting their fat cat ways harmed. And why?

Because of all those so-called "cowards" in the United States military.

Hollywood should be proud of people like Chris Kyle, and thank God each and every day that they live in a free country, kept free by the blood and sacrifice of our men and women in the military.

American Sniper, the movie, is not for the faint of heart. It is R-rated on purpose. It's raw military at it's finest. Language and violence are common themes. No, we don't condone it. But showing war in reality can be quite raw. This movie is not for kids or even young teens. It's an adult movie about adult themes. If you are offended by such things, don't go see it.

But please, stand up for the people with the guts in Hollywood who support our veterans and military.

President and US are just floundering militarily

The cuts in military at a time of increased terror awareness is just insane. How could we possibly cut bases in Europe? Shouldn't we be expanding?

Oh wait. The war on terror is over and we're going home. Safe and sound. Terrorists are on the run and...uh...no. Sorry. We seem to be completely clueless at terrorism.

Any wonder why we are floundering?

Just yesterday Eric Holder says Europe must do more....to detect terror. Aint that rich? Mr. Holder, how about us? Why are WE dropping the ball?

Not sending someone to Paris for the march was a huge mistake. But let's not pretend it was not on purpose. Sending a high level official like John Kerry would make it seem like..uh....we are agreeing that the terrorism threat is growing.

Our military and our terrorism fighting is just floundering. No other way to put it. Just today the twitter account of our military command was hacked by terrorist supporters.

Our  military is up to the task of protecting us...only if they are given the chance and the tools to do it.

But are they? Sadly, not at this time. Hopefully the Republican controlled congress can right the ship. President Obama needs to know that it was HIS policies that lost control of congress for his party. But he seems to be floundering....
 
Like making a big thing out of  "free" community college. Yeah.

Nothing is free including freedom.

We can't end without mentioning his motorcade in Phoenix going right by a VA hospital. And Obama not taking a few minutes to visit. Shame on you Mr. President. Never let our veterans get in the way of making a political speech.

On a side note, any feminist not standing with the 17 year old girl in Connecticut being forced to get cancer treatment is a hypocrite. Women (and girls) supposedly have complete control over their bodies, right?
