Journal Journal: Hold before you the truth that the Kochs are the bad guys 23

The FCC may have suspended its invasion into American newsrooms, but the controversial "Critical Information Needs" study also has George Soros' fingerprints all over it.
While disturbing, this should come as no surprise since Soros' gave more than $52 million to media organizations from 2000-2010.
Two schools were working with FCC on the project, according to Byron York of The Washington Examiner. The University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Communication and Democracy, were tasked by the FCC with coming up with criteria for what information is "critical" for Americans to have. The FCC study would have covered newspapers, websites, radio and television, according to The Washington Post.
On top of the 1st Amendment problems with this proposal, the schools involved have strong ties to liberal billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundations and have gotten more than $1.8 million from since 2000.

Read the whole thing, and don't forget that the Kochs are bad.

Journal Journal: Off to a cracking good start 3

Breitbart London packs heat:

because environmental propagandists have set the bar so low that were night found to follow day, or water prove to be wet, or sheep discovered to go "baa", these too would no doubt be cited by the likes of the BBC, the Guardian and the Huffington Post as incontrovertible proof that "global warming" (or whatever they're calling it right now) is real.

I think today it's "socially constructed universal non-constant entropy"

"It's just an outrageous lie. It's kind of hard to call it anything else. It's kind of like ObamaCare and the things he said in the beginning and now he's denying it."
I will say this till my dying day, I know people don't realize it now, that's going to go down in history as the greatest cover-up. And I'm talking about the Pentagon Papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate and the rest of them"

Climate-Change Skeptics Have a Right to Free Speech, Too

The lawsuit centers around an article published by the Competitive Enterprise Institute and reprinted by the National Review that labeled Mann--co-author of the well-known hockey-stick graph--"the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science that could have dire economic consequences for the nation and planet."

We cannot reach full Orwellian bloom unless guys who falsely claim to be Nobel Prize winners are treated like nobility and privileged to lord power over this pesky serf, Mark Steyn.

Journal Journal: I'm sure the detractors will revise their opinions 52

Long before MSNBC began defending mass surveillance or even before the Republican National Committee began denouncing it, the leftâ(TM)s favorite bogeymen saw the Patriot Act as an attack on civil liberties.
In fact, the Koch Brothers mightâ(TM)ve given more to repeal the Patriot Act than any other individual political campaign.

Journal Journal: I'll fall short of a full on conspiracy theory 10

This link throws out some dots about the strange intensity of government targeting of conservatives =>
My motives for rejecting a conspiracy are selfish: I don't want to believe that the U.S. has turned into that sort of banana republic, or is even tending that direction.
