What Woke The Zombies?


The mainstream corporate media, which for five years have gone about their business as if they were Obama zombies, seem to be awakening from their stupor with a zombie-like appetite for the brains and entrails of certain government functionaries in the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice… and perhaps President Barack Obama himself. The question is: What suddenly aroused them?

Have revelations that Obama’s DOJ has targeted reporters and their sources with overreaching and possible illegal surveillance — including threatening to charge one talking head as a co-conspirator for reporting on an Obama scandal — finally awakened the media to the fact that Obama’s modus operandi is as a Stalinesque thugocrat who has used the force of government to target certain members of the press, conservatives and whistle-blowers? Or have the world’s elite sent the message down the line that Obama has broken the unwritten law and unleashed the media to remove Obama from power?

A free press is essential in a republic. Its job is to serve as a check on government actions and to keep the general public informed about what its representatives are doing or not doing. But the press has not been “free” for some time, and that’s why we’re losing the republic.

Thirty years ago, some 50 companies controlled 90 percent of the media in America. Now it’s owned lock, stock and barrel by six media giants. The messages we receive from the MSM are tightly controlled and designed to maintain the false right/left paradigm.

That’s why it’s difficult to believe the media are now awake and agitated because they’re suddenly aware of growing tyranny under a corrupt Obama Administration. Something else, it seems, is afoot.

    There is free press… it just isn’t in the ‘lamestream’ media nor network TV propaganda.
    Obama admittedly gets his ‘news’ from the TV… which explains the complete failure of leadership. He is clueless as to what is going on… and he doesn’t realize that most people can seeright through him.

      hope and change

    • Justsomeguy151

      Sorry bt Obumma isn’t clueless. He knows EXACTLY what hes doing. Hes destroying the US, just as his Bankster puppeteers have ordered him to do. You saying he doesn’t know almost implies innocence. NO WAY. He is an accomplice to our nation’s destruction.

  • skippy

    Hmm….interesting Bob. Any chance the media will start reporting the NEWS, ie, what the heck is really going on???!! We’ll see. Thanks, as always, for something to think about!

    • Justsomeguy151

      I would say no, after all, they’re still owned by the Banksters who are behind all of the multiple schemes designed to divide us, destroy us and bankrupt us.

      • Guest

        well i must ask after the BANKSTERS gain all of the money and bankrupt us what good will all of the money do them?after the US people refuse to go along with them all they will have is a hand full of paper and a lot of dead cops and un forces as I see it.

        • Justsomeguy151

          They will have CONTROL. Complete economic and political control if not social control(and they pretty much have social control, 90%?). Control the food supply and you’ll control everyone. That’s why the Monsanto Protection Act was passed. They get to produce poisonous GMO food(which hypocritically enough, they WON’T serve in their own cafeterias!) but sue, harrass and attack people that are growing their own food. America as we knew her, or thought we did, is dead.

    The fourth estate was spanked by the very people i.e. the government that they are responsible for monitoring for acts against the people and the Constitution of the United States. The fourth estate has become the TIC (tiny blood sucking insects) in Poli-Tics (Poli meaning many). In a little more than two decades they have made themselves insignificant and useless to the people of the United States, and have fought against the Constitution that governs the land. Pity the people for their ignorance as they have been slowly reduced to zombies themselves. Nearly half of the US population has become completely brain dead as witnessed countless time by reporters on the streets of our nation and the last election. The populous is clueless that they are stumbling around in the dark while their government slowly turns them into serfs. The FED, IRS, TSA, HLS etc. all illegal within our Bill of Rights, all un-Constitutional all are destroying this country. Yes, Rome is burning while the Poli-Tics fiddle, and the people continue to eat cake… for now!

      Two possible scenarios, either the journalists will have awoken and will give out the news without bias (a total impossibility from any ideological side as bias does come thru) or they will become the ever more useful idiots and therefore more insidious in their adulation of O and even more destructive.

  • Mike

    Funny when the tables are turned, Both the first and second mention “shall not be abridged. How many read our constitution once a month to brush up? Not that it matters as O has told the big lie like Hitler did. 90% want registration guns? 86% of 3 million NRA members must not have answered that question. They all said no. The media just reported what O said without checking anything. Are they lazy or just zombies?

      Many of them are true believers. The communists stated back in the mid 1950’s that they would take over the US from within. It’s too bad they didn’t get the message that communism and socialism has FAILED in every country (our first system of government was socialism and deemed a failure after 2-3 years). Here’s a link to a list of the 45 stated goals of the communist party from a book written by someone in the FBI published in 1958. It’s interesting to just see how many of these goals have been accomplished and how close they are to completing the list. http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm

    I believe you are absolutely right on this one ,Bob. I smell a RAT also

    • nickkin

      It was a rat right form the get-go. 2008 election started the march of all the rats in the WH. Look at the name Barrack, no records to see because of concealment…..but the mezmerization of the 1st black (1/2) president blinded the voting American citizen. Even those of us who saw this are now part of the first rat-history of socialist self-loving idiot. Obummer legacy now in the anals of rats. Wonder where his library will be?

  • 1233fire

    The American people see it and have for a long time!! The news media and indeed all of Congress are in the cross hairs of a corrupt government leader. The power that the media and Congress have must be destroyed or else the people may revolt. There are still some that will not bow to tyranny. Hopefully, now they see their vulnerability. When they start reporting the truth, they will become the terrorists. You can bet on it!!

  • Michael Shreve

    Frankly, I find it difficult to believe the media is capable of sustained opposition to Democrat, liberal, progressive, communist abuses.

  • Bluplanet

    The Left Wing media has been awake all along. The driver’s of the Progressive vehicle on the road to the far left has lost control for the moment. As with any loss of control, the rule is to steer in the direction of the skid. In other words, stop driving the leftist path momentarily and acknowledge what’s happening. Steer that direction until control is regained, then SPIN the wheel back to the route planned. The problem will have been dealt with and it’s over. Everyone just move along.

  • RightGunner

    Bob, I don’t know who the Wizards are behind the screen, but I am content to recognize that there is DWOD, not a Dimes Worth of Difference, between the parties, and therefore there appears to be a some control of both, way at the top. You and others have certainly helped many of us reach that conclusion.

    Therefore I believe that that while Benghazi was a self imposed failure and Issa is working for the public to find out what happened, what came next is very curious. The IRS scandal, the AP scandal, etc., were too conveniently released at just this Obama awkward time to be anything but suspicious.

    I don’t believe the floated rumor that the Administration themselves leaked them to take the heat off of Benghazi, but it does look like perhaps Obama crossed some line of usefulness. If he goes, for whatever reason, many of us will be very happy however we also better anticipate what the rest of the story is likely to be.
