We know that the Soviet-Style Media (SSM) will demonize any response by the GOP controlled House of Representatives to the Democratic controlled Senate's version of the Continuing Resolution bill. The new GOP effort could work to build a true opposition to Statism and marginalize the SKUNCs instead of them marginalizing the constitutionally conscientious members of the GOP.
To help make that work it becomes up to the new and real independent 4th Estate like this blog to pass along the real substance to its readers. Our aim is to keep our spirits high. That is precisely in preparation for the SSM trying to demoralize us and make us give up in despair. They will do what they have always done: pass along "news" that runs from half truths, to outright lies, to provocations of mob violence. Our job is to neutralize it all as much as possible.
I'm told by many (who are far more religiously faithful than I) that despair is a sin. So I'm encouraging my readers help me do my part (and maybe theirs) to help keep our side from additional sinning.
First, let me familiarize you with the latest response by the House of Representatives to the Senate GOP not blocking Harry Reid's determination to keep in place the Obama/Reid/Pelosi deleterious health act of 2010.
Drudge does a superior headlining job than either of the two sites to which he links.
Excerpts from SSM source 1.
This puts Senate Democrats and the White House at loggerheads with House Republicans, a standoff that could lead to the first government shutdown since 1995.Excerpts from the horse's mouth 2.
“We’ve had enough of the disunity in our party,” Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told the meeting of House Republicans Saturday afternoon. “The headlines are Republicans fighting Republicans. This will unite us. This protects the people who sent us here from Obamacare.”
House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said it would be the “fastest whip check in history,” as every member raised their hand, saying they would support the bill.
“The American people don’t want a government shut down and they don’t want ObamaCare. That’s why later today, the House will vote on two amendments to the Senate-passed continuing resolution that will keep the government open and stop as much of the president’s health care law as possible.As you can already see in the way the Politico framed the news, it is long on what the SSM wants the public to hear and short on substantive reasons which just so happen to match the public's wishes. IOW, the SSM does not want the public to know how much the GOP wing of Congress is doing what the public sent them to Congress to do.
“The first amendment delays the president’s health care law by one year. And the second permanently repeals ObamaCare’s medical device tax that is sending jobs overseas.”
This has been my small effort to seek out substantive news. The more of us that do this, the more the efforts of our side stand a chance of working.
