    Another instructive round-up of events Stateside, DP.

    Re Cleveland – more evidence emerges linking the bomb plot to Occupy:

    One of the five self-described anarchists arrested last week for attempting to blow up a local bridge signed the lease for a West Side warehouse where about a dozen members of the Occupy Cleveland group live…
    “We have a person facing terrorism charges on the lease of our warehouse,” said one of the leaders. “If this gets into the media, it would be a disaster.”

    If being the operative word. Local Cleveland news is one thing, but the drive-by MSM has already moved on.


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      Mardell posted about that senior citizen at a Tea Party getting into a fight with someone and biting a finger off, wondering aloud how the debate about health care reform got so heated.

      Yet he and all 55 Beeboids in the US will continue to censor this connection to the Occupiers.

      Defenders of the indefensible will similarly remain silent.


      • DB says:

        Did you see this about the SPLC, DP?


        • David Preiser (USA) says:

          Yes, I’ve seen a bit about them on this. Just as lame as them claiming that there was an explosion of hate groups in the US after we elected a black President.

    I see Saturday Night Live pussied out rather than broadcast a sketch which mocked Obama over his Osama B-L lap of honour. It’s all rather pathetic, and not a little troubling.

    David, thanks. Interesting and informative. And, as you indicate, socialists/communists/fascists have one common thread in what they do (apart from lying and stealing of course) they are violent. The bbc, being part of the leftwing world view, will never explain that to its viewers and listeners. I’m afraid that I can’t see reasoned argument ever changing the minds of these people. The only way to neutralise them is to neutralise them. But then that’s me. I look forward to your next broadcast.

    Heard the BBC 9am news yesterday morning mention the hideous murders of 23 people in Nuevo Laredo..9 left hanging from a road bridge and 14 severed heads left in ice boxes outside City Hall.
    The story ust got the one line from the reader of the news…and absolutely no analysis forthcoming about this war right on the doorstep of the USA.
    Wonder if we could persuade Russell Brand and his ilk to do us a programme from the Mexican border, and tell us why we worry about sweatshop labour and mortality rates for Primark(and lie about what was found)…but the cost in blood and treasure for feeding the drugs habits of Brand, Doherty and all manner of Beeboids seems never to trouble them.
    About time we had some costs for indulging the medias druggies,,,Columbia, AfPak and of course your benighted US border neighbour.
    At the very least, their drugs need a FairTrade label scheme to be made compulsory don`t they?
    be interested in how the US reports on horrors like this-surely there`s more to it than Pat Buchanans book on this issue isn`t there?


    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      The Beeboids and their fellow elite travelers don’t feel at all responsible for the death and destruction caused by their drug suppliers. They blame US gun sales for all of it.

      It’s a bogus charge, but they do it anyway out of ideology.

    thanks again David for yet another informative report. I have always had an interest in the news because I think it important and a duty to know what governments are doing. What you are highlighting is how much the UK state broadcaster hides from us in the UK and thankgoodness for the internet and reports like this one of yours.
