BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Atlanta’s own Mike Luckovich says more in fewer words than all the 24/7 mainstream corporate media commentators put together!!!

Overplaying the POW Card

* * *

It isn’t just John McCain and the McCain campaign pushing for a rift and controversy in the Democratic Party. Seems CNN is aboard that same wagon!  “JESSICA YELLIN, CNN CORRESPONDENT: ... I'm being told by Wolf Blitzer who wants to know did Obama make a mistake by not choosing Senator Clinton to be his vice president?  CAMPBELL BROWN, CNN CO-ANCHOR: Yes. Why exactly didn't he pick her to be his vice president?  MALVEAUX: ... Obviously a very emotional delegate who says that she doesn't even know at this point whether or not she's going to vote in November ...” And so it goes, you can predict the attempt at the not so veiled negative commentary even before any of CNN’s commentators open their mouths and waggle their tongues!  It’s a lesson in a not so subtle psychological move to create conflict and try to sway opinion!  Yes indeed, mainstream 24/7 corporate media have hitched their wagons to John McCain and America will be the loser if the MSCM is successful in this horrific alliance!

Hillary voters for McCain be aware -- McCain: "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned."  “The poll numbers also hint a misleading spin campaign from McCain and his surrogates to portray a ‘maverick’ image on women's issues and cover up his hard-right record. McCain's long opposition to birth control measures, fair pay legislation, and his support for conservative justices such as Sam Alito and John Roberts who have undermined women's rights on the Supreme Court underscore his poor support for women.

McCain said in 2006 that he would repeal Roe v. Wade. His campaign website calls for overturning Roe, returning the issue of abortion to the states, and then building ‘the necessary consensus to end abortion at the state level.’ ‘I will be a pro-life president and this presidency will have pro-life policies,’ he told Pastor Rick Warren this month… Last month, he skipped the vote on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which would have made it easier for women and other workers to pursue pay discrimination claims. McCain explained his opposition to the bill by saying that instead of stronger pay protection, women simply needed "education and training."”  So go ahead ladies and gentlemen, cut off your noses to spite your face and bury women’s rights forever!

By hook or crook the Repuglicans will always find a way to steal an election!  They can change their name, “Premier Election Solutions, formerly known as Diebold,” but they damn sure won’t change their goal to make sure a Repuglican is elected!  Unless and until the “flawed software … on both touch screen and optical scan voting machines” made by “Premier Election Solutions formerly known as Diebold” is taken care of elections will continue to be stolen.  We must demand that “voting machine disenfranchisement” stop!!!  We must demand our votes are correctly and honestly counted!

Brooks: ‘Most of the delegates’ at the DNC sound like ‘a North Korean pep rally.’  And he should know. After all, David Brooks “ … argued forcefully on moral grounds for American military intervention, echoing the belief of conservative commentators and political figures that American and British forces would be welcomed as liberators.”  I am so over these empty-headed gossip-mongers who “brand” themselves “journalists”!!!

Hmm, this is an interesting development, who in this world would have the audacity to debunk one of John McCain’s major campaign building blocks; why it’s one of McCain’s “three wisest people in the world,” of course, “Petraeus Disagrees With McCain, Says Success In Iraq Was Possible Without The Surge”!!!

“In judging the shape of a future John McCain presidency, there are already plenty of dots that are easy to connect. They reveal an image of a war-like Empire so full of hubris that it could take the world into a cascade of crises, while extinguishing what is left of the noble American Republic.”  Now that’s a mouthful of truth!
