PAGE NINE -- No. 25

by Alan Korwin, Author
Gun Laws of America

 

I'm proposing a new page for newspapers ("Page Nine" regardless of the page it runs on), that covers stories afresh, not the way news rooms typically flavor things. It would help reduce the distrust so many readers feel. It could be the most read page in the paper.

Here's a casual sample. It might make you say, "We'll NEVER run that!" but the page is being built around ad revenues from clear-thinking mainstream businesses.

----------

1- Death Penalty Evidence
The lamestream media told you:
Capital punishment is a barbaric leftover from olden days and should be abolished because it is unfair, isn’t used elsewhere, doesn't even work and is no deterrent.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
News reports about Saddam Hussein appear to have decreased dramatically since he was put to death at the end of a rope several weeks ago. Threats and problems caused by the vicious dictator while he was alive seem to have ended, and news outlets are spending valuable time on everything but the bearded tyrant. No complaints about the lack of Saddam stories have been filed by opponents of the death penalty.

----------

2- Bomb News Suppressed
The lamestream media told you:
More bombs went off in Iraq, killing many more people in crowded areas, as sectarian violence continues to escalate, and hopelessness expands.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Somewhere in military command there must be a huge battle map, and teams working on it, to identify every explosion that goes off in Iraq. It must identify the bomb type, explosive used, detonator, size, casualties, and of course time and place.

This allows commanders to recognize the high-risk zones, bomb makers’ patterns and deployment, identify newcomers, and help root out those responsible. With so much explosives floating around, identifying the sources is a primary goal. They link each maker, supplies used and MO so our forces can spot patterns.

That much bomb making takes supply lines, expertise, command and control, and these patterns are readily noticeable.

News reports give a sense however that completely indiscriminate bombs from unrelated sources are just madness produced by mindless madmen, rebels aimlessly killing people. That ain't so.

Think back to any domestic bomb incident (say, the Atlanta Olympics), and you'll recall how much detail the FBI went into day after day to identify what occurred. Bomb experts are having a field day with all the research opportunities they have overseas. None of it is leaking into the boring repetitive drone the media provides, numbing you down.

Iran has recently been singled out as a suspected bomb maker, as a prelude to an expected incursion.

----------

3- Peaceful Muslim Quandry
The lamestream media told you:
Islam is the religion of peace.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Even the dimmest news consumers can see from the bombings, rants from mullahs, silence of the lambs, and of course the Internet where real news and photos are easily found, Islam has little to do with peace, unless it's the peace where all non-Muslims are converted or put to death. Islam's stated main concern is eventual total domination of the planet.

Koran, loosely translated by lamestream outlets as "Peace," but which most people now realize actually means, "Submission," calls for martyrdom in the pursuit of a global caliphate -- a worldwide religious dictatorship based on the Koran's sharia-style law.

Now, apparently, even the Washington Post gets it, as its long compassionate and sensitive silence on the truth about Muslims is cracking around the edges. In a widely circulated wire story, its reporters Joshua Partlow and Saad Sarhan reveal that insurgents in Iraq calling themselves, "Soldiers of Heaven," are, "driven by an apocalyptic vision of clearing the Earth of the depraved in preparation for the second coming," of a mystical cleric from the 9th century. "Fight until martyrdom," is their cry, heard by one of the reporters near the fighting.

With enough reporting like this, Americans might wake up. They might see the catastrophe Europe is battling from Muslim immigrants preparing for battle, which has been effectively supressed by lamestream outlets. Nah.

Many websites have the images the U.S. media refuses to show. Just use Google images for "Muslim protests in London." http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=Muslim+demonstrations+in+London&btnG=Search+Images

----------

4- Toys For Police
The lamestream media told you:
In order to reduce violence, protect the innocent, and fight rampant corruption in Mexico, Mexican federales confiscated all firearms from the police in Tijuana.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The National Shooting Sports Foundation has circulated news that the Tijuana, Mexico, police department has issued about 60 slingshots to officers whose guns were confiscated. I am not making this up.

The city's 2,000 police officers have been without guns since Jan. 5, when their firearms were confiscated amid allegations that corrupt officers were supporting drug traffickers. How the 1,940 officers without slingshots will cope was not covered.

No news was issued on whether U.S. police would have their guns changed to slingshots to address allegations that some corrupt officers here support the drug trade.

Critics note that the entire U.S. war on some drugs supports the drug trade, with price supports and a system that makes every drug available in every city in America. "In the war on drugs, the problem isn't the drugs, it's the war," says one critic on condition of anonymity.

----------

5- Tracking Plutonium Shipments
The lamestream media told you:
Nancy Pelosi has made the nation safer by quickly enacting recommendations made by the unbiased non-partisan Iraq study group.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Shipments of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium are tracked by U.S. agents from the CIA, according to Congressman Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.). Under the Pelosi bill, Renzi notes that this authority is transferred away from us and to the United Nations. A quick review of the bill confirms the shift to the U.N. is buried in a mass of new WMD procedural changes.

----------

6- Budget Corruption Overlooked
The lamestream media told you:
President Bush’s proposed $2.9 trillion federal budget is (pick one, based on what you typically read:) a disaster, ingenious, will work, will fail, depends on luck, is too high, too low, spends money in the wrong place) and likely to meet stiff resistance in the Democrat Congress.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Most state’s reporters included a column about how much money their own state would “get” from the federal budget, and generally complained it was too little, even if it was an increase from last year.

No reporters mentioned that if the federal government hadn’t taken all that money from the public in the first place, states wouldn’t have to “get” it back for social services, roads, schools and all the other expenses government has adopted.

Reporters failed to mention that it costs a fortune for the central federal authorities to take all that money from the people as taxes and withholdings. They then spend and lose a fortune while “managing” it all year long. They also use up and spend a fortune giving the money back to the states they took it from.

It’s hard for the average person to imagine how wealthy we’d all be if the government didn’t take so much in the first place. Reporters refused repeated requests to report on it.

None of the interest the feds make on all that money they take (and bank) goes back to the people they took it from.

It is highly questionable whether most of the expenditures of those billions of dollars are authorized by the Constitution, a point overlooked by lamestream reporters in their rush to complain that they are not getting enough back.

According to economics expert and frequent Page Nine guest columnist Craig Cantoni, nearly 60% of the federal budget now is redistributions -- taken from the public and given away to people and uses deemed worthy by the bureaucrats in charge. No arrests have been made.

“Pikes,” says Cantoni, “we need heads on pikes to slow down the theft and redistribution the government is calling a budget.”

The leader of the black congressional caucus, a race-based group within Congress, that calls itself non-partisan, publicly announced its intention to get on the right committees and get that money for their constitutents, a completely unAmerican position, challenged by no reporters. Rumored charges of ethics violations have not materialized.

----------

7- Immigrants Hate Immigrants
The lamestream media told you:
Under pressure from Washington, Mexican authorities are cracking down on South Americans who sneak up through Mexico to sneak into the United States. Civil rights groups fear the immigrants are being treated poorly by Mexicans, and crammed into overcrowded cells.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
A rumor that Mexico is running out of lower-class people it can export to the United States, after exporting millions a year for decades by sneaking them across the border illegally, could not be confirmed. The Mexican elite class is doing quite well, according to most economic indicators.

The 30 million illegal immigrants estimated to have already been snuck into this country amounts to approximately one third of the entire Mexican population.

----------

8- Racial Teen Pregnancies
The lamestream media told you:
“Even as teen pregnancy rates have declined across the country over the past decade, the teen pregnancy rates among Latinos remains high,” reports Gannett’s number two paper (after USA Today), The Arizona Republic.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Teen pregnancy rates among Latinos are not remaining high, they are increasing dramatically, according to the chart printed with the story. Why reporters would whitewash the text when the actual numbers are provided is not known. The suggestion that Americans can’t understand numbers cannot possibly be correct.

Race-based reporting is now an accepted cultural norm and form of diversity for multiculti lamestream reporters.

----------

9- Illegals’ Crimes Recognized
The lamestream media told you:
“Many White supremacists blame immigrants, particularly Hispanics, for crime, struggling schools or unemployment,” reports Erin Texeira for the Associated Press on 2/6/07.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Are people, including stereotyped racists, blaming illegals for problems, or just recognizing obvious problems?

Law enforcement officials, politicians, government bureaucrats, the “news” media, school administrators and the public at large have long been keenly aware that crime, struggling schools and unemployment problems are fueled in large measure by illegal Hispanic immigrants who have snuck into the country and are siphoning off resources, creating problems, committing crimes and protesting.

The AP reporter must have singled out White supremacist groups to suggest they are about as bright as everyone else.

Prison populations, English-language learner programs and day laborers clogging parking lots and street corners stand as hard evidence of the problem White supremacists are now credited with recognizing, according to geniuses at the Associated Press.

In other news, illegal Hispanics in the U.S., estimated to number at least 30 million, are largely Christian, and will turn out to be valuable allies against Muslim islamofascists, who are stepping up efforts to trash American culture and institute a global jihadi caliphate here, as they are succeeding in doing in Europe.

----------

10- Tax Is Tax
The lamestream media told you:
President Bush remains firm on his commitment to not increase taxes, but plans to raise $81 billion by adjusting fees for a variety of services, according to the McClatchy chain of papers and wire services.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
If your government gets money and it comes from you, it’s taxation. Watchdog groups like newspaper chains have lately preferred to disguise this for the public for an unknown reason. Critics charge it is propaganda designed to mislead sheeple and the ignorant. Reporters could not be reached for comment.

To hide taxes, they are now referred to as fees, user fees, tarrifs, subsidies, subsidy reductions, benefit reductions, allocations, allotments, allowances, decreased allowances, rate surcharges, funding, stipends, costs, cost of living increases, adjustments for inflation, ramp ups, planned expansions, withholdings, FICA payments, add-ons, hikes, charges on taxpayers, regulations, licenses, wage and labor rules, and revenue generators.

“Technically, these aren’t taxes,” McClatchy reports. Right.

“Technically, this is not reporting,” says The Uninvited Ombudsman. No ethics-violation charges are expected.

----------

11- Colder Warming Worsens
The lamestream media told you:
Sub-zero cold blanketed the northeast, following severe snowstorms in the nation’s midsection, plus eight feet of snow in New York, and is blamed for numerous deaths.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The timing of the freezing weather is very bad, coming as it does on the heels of the Paris “science” conference held to add legitimacy to global warming theories that are in vogue. No explanation for the discrepancy has been issued, but cynics expect at least some “authorities” to blame the cold on heat-trapping “greenhouse” gases.

The warming effect of running six billion heaters, at 98.6 degrees, 24 hours a day for an average of 70 years each, has not been factored into the equations. A Page Nine Special Report on Global Whining will be released shortly.

----------

12- Guest Columnist Craig Cantoni asks:
Anna Nicole, Milton Friedman and Joan Collins who?

When the media announced the death of Anna Nicole Smith, I had to ask my wife who she was.  In retrospect, it would have been better not to know.  And when I learned the same week that hundreds of Scottsdale women had lined up at the Barnes & Noble near my house for a book signing by Joan Collins, I had to ask who she was, and again regretted asking.

Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman died recently.  There were tributes to him in the media, but nothing like the incessant coverage of Anna Nicole Smith, whose claim to fame was posing naked, mooching off an old guy, taking drugs, gaining weight, losing weight, wearing so much mascara that she looked like a raccoon, and having the intelligence of a -- well, never mind.

By contrast, Friedman’s claim to fame was developing an economics theory and a libertarian political philosophy that lifted countless millions of people out of poverty.

I wonder how many Scottsdale women would have shown up if Friedman had held a book signing for his masterpiece, Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960, which he co-authored with Anna Jacobsen Schwartz, whose first name and gender were the only things the brilliant woman had in common with the other Anna.  The book showed that government monetary policy is what actually triggered the Great Depression.

I also wonder how many Scottsdale women would have shown up if Friedman and his equally brilliant wife Rose had held a book signing for the insightful book they co-authored, Free to Choose:  A Personal Statement.  For sure, few public school teachers would have shown up -- given their animus towards Friedman, who was the father of school vouchers.

His book gives example after example of how free markets and free choice help mankind, and how government control and restricted choice hurt mankind, a lesson that city councils and most of Congress haven’t learned -- to the detriment of us all.

Yes, free markets and free choice allow people to spend their time and money watching inane coverage of Anna Nicole Smith and buying a fluff book by Joan Collins.  But they also allow smart, industrious, creative and entrepreneurial people to be successful and thus raise the standard of living for everyone else.

Thank goodness we live in a country where there are enough of the second kind of people to compensate for the first kind of people.

"No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing
because he could do only a little."

===============================
Comments help keep me going. Alan.
===============================

"Polls are tests to see how well the propaganda is working." Gary Sepp

[Boy, Gary, you couldn’t have said it better, I’m quoting you everywhere! The media feeds them, the polsters bleed them, and the politicians need them. What a racket. Alan.]

 

How about Davy Crockett? "We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money." --Larry Southwick

 

Please keep me on the national news list. Thanks for all your hard work! --Nick Falcone

 

[Re: the anti Minuteman bill] yeah I read this piece of garbage bill.  So in other words, if you and your spouse decide to take your daily walk (armed, concealed or open), and observe a few landscapers along the way, you and your spouse are now domestic terrorists... --Frank Sciabata [his assessment is correct; fortunately, the bill died a horrible death in committee, upsetting its sponsor]

 

Alan, Enjoyed listening to you on Tom Gresham's "Gun Talk"  Please sign me up for your "attack on gun rights" newsletter.  Thank you --- and keep up the good work against all the evil, gun banning liberals and the slanted media! --Mike from Spokane, WA

 

Kyrsten Sinema [sponsor of the anti-Minuteman bill] simply proves my theory about education being an indoctrination mill for socialists. The longer one remains in our government school system, the more commie they become. Sinema claims her degree is in Social Work, it's really in socialism. Cheers! --Linda

 

I sent a condensed copy of this to Fox News (O'Reilly Factor).  Maybe they'll pick it up. Great Work, again. --Jerry Catania [Note: Now, if more readers would do this to the top outlets, we could really start making some headway]

 

Alan -- I appreciate receiving your emails Keep me on your list, please! And many thanks. --Pam Mayall

 

Addendum to the SHOT Show report:
Once again, despite all the guns, ammo, and people in the same location, no one got shot. --Larry Arnold

 

Alan, Your various writings are very much appreciated. I just wanted to let you know that you are assuredly NOT a lone voice crying in the wilderness. There are many of us out here. Hope you and yours enjoy many more New Years of health, happiness and properity. Best Regards, --Mike Malkin

 

Your page nine posts just keep getting better and better. As for the commendation for the National Guard troops who left their post in the face of the insurmountable enemy, (which, I understand has now apparently doubled from four to eight, I suggest a picture of a giant boot inscribed with a Mexican flag, stomping on a squad of National Guardsmen clad in BDU's with a yellow stripe on the back. Your posts are much appreciated. Thanks, --Mark

 

Another great page 9 Alan, thanks. --Dick

 

Alan,
Good evening. Hope all is well with you. Greatly enjoy the Page 9. Continue the excellent work of informing and educating citizens on their rights

 

Dear Alan,
Thank you for all you do in the interest of all Americans, including my 4 children. Despite being a public school teacher in Tennessee, I appreciate the clarity and wit of your writing (the info is great too).  Thanks for sticking up for all of us.
Would you kindly send me a catalog, please? Cordially, --Jon Shell [Full color catalogs are free on request.]

 

Mr. Korwin, After reading your thoughts on gun registration I can only applaud. It’s too bad that all of the logic in the world won’t convince the gun haters. They just can’t seem to link the criminal to the crime. I guess they blame the wrench when the mechanic screws up the transmission on the car or they blame the voting booth when the candidate they don’t like wins an election. I suppose it’s the car’s fault when that aggressive driver cuts them off in traffic. While there seems to be no getting through to these folks, I won’t give up the fight until I’m eating dirt. If there is anything I can do to support you please let me know. Thanks again for your insightful article. Regards, --Douglas W. Huber CFA, CFSP

 

Impressed and grateful for all the work you do. Please send me updates!

 

Just wanted to write and congratulate you a job well done!   I read with great interest each edition of "Page Nine," and commend you for your efforts --Joe

 

Like always, excellent page 9, and Mr. Cantoni's column is simply superb. Good work Alan. Take care, --Jose
