Can the "effete" hyper-partisan, socialist-infiltrated Hillary Clinton's State Department be trusted to produce a "Pro-America" viewpoint?
It appears that Hillary Clinton is seeking additional taxpayer dollars to run a government propaganda operation similar to the Voice of America.
Using the bogeyman of the other state-sponsored media sources such as Al Jazeera is an independent broadcaster owned by the state of Qatar and Russia Today (RT Times) funded by the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, Clinton claims …
“We are in an information war and we are losing that war. I will be very blunt in my assessment. Al Jazeera is winning. The Chinese have opened up a global English and multi-language television network. The Russians have opened up an English language network. I’ve seen it in quite a few countries and it is quite instructive.”
“During the Cold War we did a great job in getting America’s message out. After the Berlin Wall fell, we said, ‘OK, fine, enough of that, You know, we’ve done it. We are done,’ and unfortunately we are paying a big price for it.
In her own words …
So she wants more money for propaganda – or at least to justify the State Department's 37 BILLION dollar budget.
But can she be trusted …
There is little or no doubt that America has been embarrassed on the international stage as President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, CIA Director General Petraeus, and United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice openly lied to the American people – and the world – about a non-existent protest over a video at a non-consulate to cover up an alleged CIA operation to transfer weapons through Turkey to Islamic Jihadists. There was no video-inspired protest and Hillary Clinton was lying!
Hillary Clinton’s Department of State went so far as to purchase $70,000 of paid commercial time in Pakistan to proclaim that the United States did not produce or support the little-seen YouTube video. Claiming, “We absolutely reject its content and message.” There was no explanation of American values and Constitutional rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Only condemnation of the video and its creator.
And when it comes to propaganda and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – Hillary Clinton is all in. In fact, Clinton’s senior thesis was on Alinsky: “THERE IS ONLY THE FAULT' …’ An an Analysis of the Alinsky Model.” It can be found here.
Although I have no "loving wife" to thank for keeping the children away while I wrote, I do have many friends and teachers who have contributed to the process of thesis-writing. And I thank them for their tireless help and encouragement. In regard to the paper itself, there are three people who deserve special appreciation: Mr. Alinsky for providing a topic, sharing his time and offering me a job; Miss Alona E. Evans for her thoughtful questioning and careful editing that clarified fuzzy thinking and tortured prose; and Jan Krigbaum for her spirited intellectual companionship and typewriter rescue work. hdr
Bottom line …
President Obama, Hillary Clinton and their fellow socialist/communist travelers cannot be trusted to put forth the American viewpoint. Propaganda, yes! The truth, maybe! Pro-America, doubtful!
