ROSCOE’S Mid-Weak Review

See how they spin

After your—ahem—daily visit to Regime Change Iran, you might want to check out NewsBusters for the story behind the Bush Iraq strategy story—the mainstream mediocracy’s shameless spin to Hide the Truth from America. How do we know this? Does the sun rise in the east? That’s how sure we are. (And in case you didn’t know, NewsBusters is undoubtedly the best place to get the antidote to all the toxins that the mainstream mediocracy spews upon us each day.)

In fact, the drumbeat already began long before Bush even went on the air to address the nation. Did you see Time magazine’s cover this week? “The Surge: Does sending more soldiers to Iraq make any sense?” That little gem was written, of course, at least a week ago.

Speaking of usual suspects, al-Reuters has already done the predictable and declared “Bush defies public opinion, Democrats on Iraq troops.” The story—we will not link to this egregious piece of French—dwells heavily on a supposed split in Republican ranks—giggle, giggle—going out of its way (and the mainstream) to quote senators like Norm Coleman and Sam Brownback. Not what you’d call exactly representative of Republicanism on this issue. But, hey, what did you expect? Fair and balanced? (LOL.)


Another thing the mainstream mediocracy won’t be expending a lot of ink or kilobytes on: That surprise American strike in Somalia this week brought justice to a seriously bad dude: Fazel Abdullah Mohammed, the mastermind of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed more than 200 people. The collapse of the Islamist regime there with the help of the Ethiopians allowed the opportunity to bring this maggot to justice. Eternally.

Remember in the early George Bush years how the mainstream mediocracy constantly underestimated this president’s intelligence and gravitas, to their own detriment? It continues. All of which adds up to the fact that we’re also probably doing one heck of a lot better in the war on terror than you’d gather from the dinosaur media. Fazel Abdullah Mohammed is a case in point. And that’s good news.

And finally

Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, elected in November, has been named to the House Judiciary Committee. The Associated Press reports:

In a prepared statement Wednesday, Ellison, D-Minn., called the selection an honor and privilege.

"I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen's civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years," said Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress.

Ellison, a freshman lawmaker, said this week he'd like to see a ban on racial profiling, an issue that could come up in the Judiciary Committee.

And, oh by the way, the new Democrat chairman of that committee? John Conyers, D-Mich., whom Investors Business Daily calls “in the pocket of Islamists.” Conyers is probably the highest-profile supporter of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and has sponsored legislation, unsuccessfully thus far, to make public criticism of Islam a crime.
