Glenn Beck’s journalistic online endeavor The Blaze has told Politico and other news agencies that they are recalling a military analyst and correspondent Jason Buttrill, a former US Marine, after Buttrill admits he took a couple of pot shots at Isis fighters in Iraq.

 

The incident happened in Iraq within days of this writing and already there has been a fire storm of criticism about Buttrill’s actions. Online there is a photograph, taken by a peer of Buttrill’s showing him aiming what appears to be a PSL or Draganov-style military rifle with Peshmerga fighters looking on. Buttrill admits that he took about six shots at Isis fighters while at the front lines from very long distance.

 

Buttrill bragged about the incident in his Twitter feed. And got a lot of reaction online.

Journalists responded to the comments of Buttrill, claiming that his actions as a foreign fighter endanger other journalists covering areas of conflict.C.J. Chivers of the New York Times writes:

Here at the American Millennium we have a different opinion, (‘we’ being ‘me’ since I’m the only one!)Since when does crying over a dead journalist do any good? Journalists have been covering war and conflict forever. They’ve always been hated by totalitarian regimes, they’ve always been jailed, tortured and murdered. Why then should not a journalist retaliate against an evil organization that murderers journalists for fun, beheads them, and sends the film of the atrocity to the internet where family members can see?

Mike Glenn arrogantly sniff’s:

Jason Stern of the Committee to Protect Journalists also weighed in writing:

 

Jason, journalists are detained and killed all over the world over false accusations of being combatants. This doesn’t help.

Stop already, you hypocrites! You make me want to throw up. The fact is that these so called journalists who arrogantly sniff that people like Buttrill is endangering journalists are like people who blame the woman who was raped because of what she was wearing at the time. There is more outrage from these journalists about what Buttrill did than for what Isis and Al Qeada has done from the very beginning. I would rather read the dispatches of a partisan journalist who actually recognizes the danger of this enemy than one of these robots who cover the war and don’t take a side.

There’s been a big deal made about the sad photo of a child in Syria caught in the debris after a Russian air strike. The poor little child, in shock probably, wipes blood and tears from his face as he sits calmly in the back of an ambulance. This iconic photo probably is the one image that resonates for most journalists and regular people the horrible aftermath of war. But there is another photo that is no less important. It is the photo of a Syrian man holding up the dead body of a very young child, sans a head. The baby was tortured by terrorists and beheaded. Her crime, belonging to a Christian family. How can anyone look at a photo like this and not have an emotional reaction? How can you not, if given a chance, not want to do what Buttrill did and fire a few shots at the murderers who perpetrated these atrocities?

I applaud Buttrill, and for the journalists criticizing him, I say, get your heads out of your asses. There is no such thing as an independent journalist anymore. We learned from American elections that all journalists are partisans and have an agenda. Why should not one man out of many who has an accurate assessment of what is going on in the world and want to take part, even grabbing a rifle from time to time.

Buttrill is a warrior, a former US Marine, indoctrinated in the ways of the Marine Corps, protectors of the realm. Who is to say, in the new normal, that a man doing journalism overseas in a combat zone can’t multi-task? There are some who watch and do nothing, and there are those who act. Buttrill is a man of action.

There is another image that has caught my attention that I’d like to comment on briefly. It is a video of a woman in a train station being assaulted by a Muslim immigrant. She gets off the train and goes down the stairs into the station. It’s late at night. The immigrant, a male Muslim, for no other reason other than hate and spite, comes up from behind her and kicks her hard in the back, sending her careening down the stairs. A companion of this Muslim piece of crap then steals the girl’s cell phone and walks off.

To me this unfortunate incident in a Berlin train station is representative of what is going on in the world. Muslims are taking over the west and they don’t really care about our western values. It doesn’t matter that people like Buttrill are taking pot shots at them. These men, and it’s mostly the men, hate us and they hate our values. They are coming to the west and are taking over our countries so that in some areas you can’t even recognize the place anymore.

We are the girl at the train station. We are getting kicked down the stairs and the collective west is just watching it happen. It’s time we start kicking back.

Who can forget the vicious attack on the French Satirical paper Charlie Hebdo in January of 2015? Journalists drawing satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed raised the ire of these madmen and pair of gunmen took action and shot up the place. In a two-day onslaught these criminals killed 17 people, including journalists and police. Why then should not another journalist in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo take up their cause, and a rifle, and take a few shots at the sort of people who like to kill journalists for fun?!

French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo takes a politically incorrect aim at Islam.

In my mind there are only two kinds of people any more: those who support the terrorists and those who oppose them. I for one oppose the people who murder gays, women, men, children, journalists, cops, aging archaeologists, who destroy shrines and ancient ruins, who rape women, throw them down stairs and steal their cell phones, who don’t value what we value and take a collective piss on our western worldview. To them I say, better take cover, we are coming for you and we are going to destroy you.

And for those journalists who just stand and watch as atrocities happen I say, You are irrelevant.

Glenn Beck released a statement to Politico announcing the recall and suspension of Buttrill.

Says Beck: “Jason Buttrill is a valued researcher for Mercury Radio Arts for a television show that airs on TheBlaze network,” the statement says. “Given his military and security background, Mr. Buttrill was offered the opportunity for an important research assignment in Iraq. Due to his conduct, Mercury Radio Arts has recalled him back to the US. He has been suspended from further field research assignments.”

Beck should grow a spine and leave Buttrill where he is. I have more respect for him than other so called journalists in the region, who I am going to ignore from now on. Beck’s reaction to this situation is very disappointing.

Special note: It appears that some Islamic thug responsible for terrorist actions in Paris, including the attack on Charlie Hebdo, was killed by the US military in Syria. It’s the US military that keep us safe, not some committee of journalists. You’re welcome.

Racist Politico Smears Minority GOP Presidential Candidate with Fraudulent Story about West Point Appointment

by Jeremy Griffith
American Millennium Online

 

Dr. Ben CarsonPolitico writer Kyle Cheney and his liberal news organization is receiving some heat today after fabricating a Dan-Ratheresque lie about claims made by Dr. Ben Carson, the African-American GOP presidential candidate. Caught in a lie meant to smear a minority that they fear, Politico editors are standing by their story despite the backlash from right wing blogs.

 

In a story published November 6th around noon and later updated, Politico claims that Dr. Ben Carson, once a junior ROTC cadet at the high school he attended, was offered an appointment to the prestigious Army Military Academy at West Point but turned it down. The author of the story states that Carson misled people about the appointment and full ride scholarship that didn’t really happen.

 

Says Politico: Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Later on in the story, Politico states: When presented with these facts, Carson’s campaign conceded the story was false.

“Dr. Carson was the top ROTC student in the City of Detroit,” campaign manager Barry Bennett wrote in an email to POLITICO. “In that role he was invited to meet General Westmoreland. He believes it was at a banquet. He can’t remember with specificity their brief conversation but it centered around Dr. Carson’s performance as ROTC City Executive Officer.”

“He was introduced to folks from West Point by his ROTC Supervisors,” Bennett added. “They told him they could help him get an appointment based on his grades and performance in ROTC. He considered it but in the end did not seek admission.”

Conservative blog “The Right Scoop” get’s it right in exposing the hypocrisy in a great piece on this yet another political debacle perpetrated by a liberal news organization on a Republican political candidate. You can read the whole story at the link above. You’ll remember no doubt the political hack job done by CBS’s Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes on then president George W. Bush stating that he had shirked his duties as an Air National Guard pilot to pursue a political career. That whole nonsense was made up based on clearly forged documents made up by another political hack meant to smear Bush. Today Mapes and Rather no longer work at CBS; having been forced into retirement in shame. Don’t worry for them though. Their Hollywood buddies have doubled down on that shame by making and equally fraudulent movie about them starring none other than Robert Redford, a great actor but yet another shill for the liberal left.

 

Rich Lowry talks about this strange development in his column for the New York Post entitled: Dan Rather’s Big Lie Hits the Big Screen.

 

Lowry poignantly writes: In their perversely titled film (Truth), Robert Redford plays Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchet plays Mary Mapes, the erstwhile CBS News anchor and producer who collaborated on a spectacularly flawed September 2004 story about George W. Bush’s National Guard service. Their report should be taught at journalism schools for a long time to come as an object lesson in how not to attempt journalism.

Their report should be taught at journalism schools for a long time to come as an object lesson in how not to attempt journalism. -Rich Lowry, New York Post

It seems to me that so-called journalists can’t seem to learn from the past mistakes of others. The Bush National Guard story where well-known and heralded journalists got fired for fraudulent and shoddy work you would think would be an object lesson. But apparently, Politico doesn’t get it.

 

Lowry’s genius continues later in the story where he writes: In a better world, the bloggers who exposed the malfeasance of these seemingly untouchable mandarins of the media would be the ones to get the feature-length film. Not only did they uncover the truth — to borrow a term — they were plucky underdogs whose exertions to prevail against a broadcasting behemoth signaled the beginning of a new, more democratic era in the history of the country’s media.

Absolutely right!

 

Politico’s story, like the Dan Rather George Bush story, is yet another political hack job meant to scare voters away from a conservative political candidate that they fear. Far from attempting to demonstrate the real political view and facts of the candidates, the left and their media arm, the main stream press, is obsessed with smearing candidates on the right and provide cover for the candidates on the left.

 

We’ve seen this clearly in the last CNBC GOP debate in Denver where the moderators attempted to excoriate the candidates and where their efforts blew up in their faces when Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and others stood up to them and pointed out their bias to raucous applause. We can only hope that blogs on the right keep up the fight for the truth against these left wing smear jobs.

 

No less than Rush Limbaugh piled on to the Carson West Point story with his expert analysis on his radio show this week. A clip of what Rush said is available here.

 

http://www.wnd.com/2015/11/limbaugh-carson-is-victim-of-electronic-lynching/

 

As the political season continues to unfold, you can expect to see more personal attacks on the candidates on the right, such as Marco Rubio’s credit issues, or Ben Carson’s West Point non-appointment, and more fawning over Hillary Clinton and less about here e-mails, classified documents, Benghazi, or the $6 Billion in tax payer funds she lost while she was Secretary of State.

 

In the leftist’s militaristic fashion it should be pointed out how this story would have gone if we were talking about a right wing media outlet attacking a minority leftist candidate like Barack Obama. Claims of racism would be flying everywhere. Would it be fair to label Politico writers as racist for attacking Ben Carson in this fashion? How much traction would that get?

 

In the end, Ben Carson doesn’t need to cry about racism because he transcends the whole race-baiting scenario. He’s a world famous brain surgeon responsible for saving people’s lives, the lives of young children specifically. Carson is a hero and that scares the left. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that the leftist media is in panic mode in their efforts to discredit strong political opposition form the right.
