"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

G.K.Chesterton once wrote about journalism …”Journalism consists largely in saying “Lord James is dead” to people who never knew Lord James was alive”

This is just another way of saying that the real proof of bad journalism is when you personally know the topic or the subject better than the journalists do causing their not so hidden bias to actually become the bigger story.

We had another classic example of this on Tuesday when two reporters from the Daily News wrote a hit piece about the new Chair of the Bronx Republican Party who in the name of full disclosure has been a friend for 20 years and is someone who once worked for me. They never had any fundamental questions of him such as what were his goals and mission for the party but instead concentrated on personal events in his life which in some instances were 30 years old in origin and over and done with… and they even got some of that information wrong.

The bottom line is that much of the press has become a vassal of either the Democratic Party or the in the case of the Bronx the sleaze that passes for elected or party officials from all parties who owe no loyalty to anyone but themselves. They are the me, my, mine party and preside unencumbered by any values, loyalty, or sense of public trust.
The press is so terrified that they will lose access to these villains that they are willing accomplices to any distortion of truth or character assassinations that their masters organize or demand. 

Arthur Schopenhauer the 18th century German philosopher once wrote that “Journalists are like dogs, when ever anything moves they begin to bark.”

The deal in NYC is and has been that in the eyes of the 4th estate, that Republicans and conservatives in particular… don’t move. Tier one candidates like John Faso and Wendy Long pass like phantoms in the night without comment before an almost completely ideological press and media. Non democrats do not politically exist for much of the press and media unless they are some variation of Democrat ‘lite” and even then they are not really taken seriously if they are persons of common means and average income. 
One true test of someone not on the take is if they have experienced the vicissitudes of modern life and suffered financially as well as in other ways. Today we have millions losing their jobs, their homes and their futures only partly due to their own actions and in many cases due more to the reckless policies of politicians who liberal journalists treat as rock stars.

The new Chair of the Bronx GOP is not a rock star. He is just an honest man who has had some of the ups and downs that many of us have had to face through the years. He has served the city and state and his country honorably over many decades and after 911 faced and fought terrible medical issues without complaint. Perhaps that should have been mentioned in this scurrilous piece of dreck reporting and then they could have answered their own dumb question of where the GOP found him! Both the reporters, the Daily News and the people behind this story should be ashamed of themselves…if they are capable of shame!
