American Propaganda

Send in the drones

Drones are just a tool; a method of disrupting our enemy that is more effective than sending 100,000 troopsMore >>

Obama's cuts are getting blowback.

The budget cuts in the USA have Obama loyalists on the defensive.More >>

In fairness to the Dictator, er, President, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin's suggestion that the President essentially hold Republicans hostage until a deal was done -- "couldn't you just have them down there and refuse to let them leave the room?" -- was pretty dumb. But this was a response that will be memed, edited and gif'd for the remainder of Barack Obama's term.

According to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward.

Woodward slammed Obama’s decision to announce that sequester cuts would force an American aircraft carrier to not deploy to the Persian Gulf.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document’?” Woodward asked incredulously. “Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need.’ Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ as he did when Clinton was president because of some budget document?”

Propaganda roundup. The latest political commentary to mobilize the massesThe Propagandist's Allies are jumping toward the Enemy, smashing their heads into bricks, picking up whatever coins pop out and sometimes just charging right through the bad guys, accompanied by a quick-time musical interlude.

Here are the latest propaganda dispatches from the front lines:

Confusion to our enemies!...More >>

If there’s anything that’s become thematic in the United States recently, it’s this: some nutjob opens fire with lethal intent in a public place. People die, or are at the very least wounded. The public becomes angry. The media responds to this anger by looking for scapegoats. In doing so, they can’t resist the urge to politicize the shooting.

They dig deep into the history of the shooter in search of right-wing or conservative connections. Any little thing will do. They report if the shooter’s bookshelf features offerings by Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly.  They report breathlessly if a local Tea Party member happens to have the same name as the shooter – as they did after James Holmes shot up a Colorado movie theatre (the Tea Party member in question turned out to be an entirely different individual). If they could ever find a shooter who was a registered Republican, they would probably hit the ceiling with glee.

So precisely how would the left react if a shooter turned out have left-wing or liberal leanings?

As it turns out, not in the same way. It seems like now is a good time to introduce the left to their shooters:...More >>

If they are in a foreign country beyond the reach of conventional American law enforcement capabilities and are operating as a senior member of Al Qaeda or an associated force planning to kill other Americans. Such strikes would have to take place in accordance with applicable law of war principles (ie. the Geneva Conventions).More >>

The USA is fighting back against state-backed cyber-hackers from distant lands by upping their own defensive and offensive capabilities.

About 10 years too late, but still...

The Post reported on plans for creation of three types of forces under the Cyber Command. Two are familiar: “combat mission forces” to serve in parallel with military units and “protection forces” to defend Pentagon networks. A third area is new: “national mission forces” that would seek to head off any threat to critical infrastructure in the United States, such as electrical grids, dams and other potential targets deemed vital to national security. These “national mission forces” are expected to operate outside the United States, perhaps launching preemptive strikes on adversaries preparing to take down an American bank or electric grid.

Guns, Guns, Guns

I don’t think that anyone, anywhere, needs a Bushmaster rifle. And I certainly don’t think that absolutely anybody should be able to get their hands on one: including myself.

Understand that I have to preface that last particular statement with a confession of sorts: I suffer from a mental illness. During the past year I was diagnosed with a mixed depression. As I’ve advanced through the stages of treatment the prospect of a drug-resistant mixed depression is one that looms on the horizon. But enough about me. While I feel that I should be forthcoming about this particular detail, this isn’t about me.

To me, it’s still about the 26 murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, and about their families. This past week it was impossible to look away while the parents of the slain children testified at a gun safety hearing at the state capitol in Hartford, Connecticut.

I think, in particular, about Neil Heslin, whose son Jesse was killed in the attack. During this past week he testified at the hearing. If you listen to the far-left media,...More >>

Hillary Clinton's frustrated one-liner at the Benghazi hearing may be remembered for some time to come. Facing determined questioning about why the White House spun a bizarre story about a protest tied to an anti-Islam video -- a protest that did not happen -- to explain the Benghazi attack, she practically throws up her arms and complains, "what difference did it make?"

A lot. In line with the scenario put forth by Ambassador Rice, the White House felt compelled to apologize to the Islamic world for instigating the attack on its own people by Islamist jihadists. In the real world, we know there was no link between a YouTube video no one had seen and the death of four Americans.

In the scenario put forth by the White House, America was to blame for its own misfortune -- and they didn't change their story until long after the facts had come in.More >>
