The Need For Fight Back Media – My View

Like many of us I grew up under the impression that if you wanted to be informed you should read the newspaper and watch the TV news broadcasts. The New York Times, Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal all beacons of journalistic integrity. They were the muckrakers of our day. They uncovered scandals an held politicians accountable. But things have changed. We watched Brinkley and Huntley, Cronkite and Rather thinking that these were the epitome of newsmen in the mold of Edward R. Murrow. But something changed.

Some would say that it was the advent of the cable news channels.  The 24/7 babble of CNN forever changed the picture of news and news gathering. On the major broadcast channels, the only obvious competition revolved round how trustworthy the new readers were and, holding on to the market share they already had. CNN was on up start cable and had to do something to attract viewers, not just at 6:00pm but all day. What could they do to get someone to watch a news broadcast at 3:30 in the afternoon?

They figured it out, they could be first on any scene and stay on that scene longer than anyone else. Then that was not enough they had to make that scene as dramatic as they could to keep viewers there. so they started using reporters with opinions to stir the pot a bit. CNN saw that the controversy of opinion would hold on to viewers. They liked it so much they divided up into teams. CNN ran “Headline News”, a “loop of the hour top stories, while n the next channel they ran some of the first opinion based programs. They were disguised and public affairs shows but were nothing more than as platforms for hosts to expouse  their opinions .

Early on CNN seemed to be pragmatic in their politic approach with hosts like Wolf Blitzer and Glenn Beck.  But the election of Barack Obama seemed to change things. More liberal, even leftist opinions were being lifted up as fact. Blitzer turned left and Beck went away. CNN was solidly in the corner of the Obama campaign, even against Hillary Clinton. Any appearance of objectivity was gone. That opened the door for MSNBC to try to “outleft” CNN. MSNBC went celeb with Rachel Maddow, a female comic with a talent for snark was now one of their leading opinion people. MSNBC understood left start power, it wasn’t long before Al Sharpton was front and center with a pro Obama show named “Forward” taken from the Obama campaign motto.

At this point it was on! A constant barrage of liberal and leftists dominated the airwaves.  An constant push of the Democrat narrative by talking points delivered into the homes of Americans. The balance is so thrown off Fox News being portrayed as a conservative “safespace.” When it is the most balanced of the major media outlets.

This slide by the cable networks forced the other networks to follow suit in order to hold on to viewers. Newspapers went along for the very same reasons, as their share of American influence continues to shrink.

So I believe it is time for someone to expose  the MainStream Media for what it is, the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party and the Marxist movement in America. This is why we started Fight Back Media Group. We are dedicated to bringing attention to this dangerous and destructive narrative by main stream media and pop culture. This narrative has been especially harmful in urban America.

We are ready to partner with the best urban conservative voices in America to bring a the counter narrative to communities that need to hear it most. We are partnering with voices like Sonnie Johnson, Shirley Husar, K Carl Smith, Rev. CL Bryant, and Kevin Batts to shine light on what Democrats and the left with the help of Main Stream Media have been doing to urban America for more than 50 years.

Help us as we embark on this admittedly “David vs. Goliath” endeavor.  Along with our internet campaigns we are planning important townhall style meeting around the country to bring the message of the urban conservative to urban America!

 

Our Fight Against Big Government Is Not Just In Washington

I received a copy of a letter that a local Pastor sent to Tampa City Council today concerning the churches desire to build a preschool on their property. Although it does not surprise many of us that the city has taken the position is has, I am publishing this to illustrate that a big government that smothers real progress that community leaders are ready to make.

This is the copy of the email I sent to the Tampa City Council today 10/11/2016 regarding their fees for approving our preschool / daycare.

Dear City Council Members;

I am a pastor of a Tampa church which has served the community with food, clothing, and cash donations for over 20 years. We recently decided to add a preschool to our existing ministries. In order to be included in the VPK program I applied for a special use permit with the city of Tampa on 9/30/2016; I was shocked to learn that I would need to pay over $1,500.00 in fees, obtain another survey of my church facility, and present my request before you twice before I could proceed with the preschool / daycare program. I believe that as a not for profit organization your fees are excessive, and considering our level of community involvement, unjust and unnecessary. We are trying to provide a service to working families and I believe it is incumbent upon civic leaders to facilitate our actions not hinder them. I request that the fees be reduced if not eliminated and that you promptly move on approving our application.

Sincerely,

Pastor Dr. Tony Smart
Victory Baptist Church
6202 South MacDill Ave.
Tampa, FL 33611.

Please help Pastor Smart in his quest to help his community by contacting your City Council member.

LEVIN: STAYING HOME ON ELECTION DAY? DON’T PRETEND YOU’RE DOING THE ‘MORAL’ THING

I was listening to Mark Levin on the way home and was surprised to hear Levin turn the corner on Trump. Levin makes a very politically pragmatic argument for voting for Trump in this particular situation.

Listen to what Levin said yesterday:

These Are Times That Try Mens’ Souls

This week, two more police shooting that result in the death of two Black men. Black Lives Matter, and the rest of the usual suspects take over Facebook and twitter calling out all of us “Uncle Ruckus” types because we have spoken of up for law and order in our own community. We seek safety in out community. We know that chaos will not provide the atmosphere for growth. And for this will are “part of the problem.” Well today lets talk about the events of the past couple of days.

Terrance Cutcher, was shot and killed by a Tulsa police officer. The dashcam video along with the helicopter footage makes this look like a “bad shoot.” There is an investigation going on and we will see what the Tulsa Police Department determines. At that point we will be in a position to make further commentary. In the other shooting Keith Lamont Scoot reportedly had a hand gun. His family says it was a book. But according to police, Scott was told numerous times to drop it and did not and was eventually shot and killed by Brently Vinson, a Charlotte PD officer. Not that it matters but Vinson is Black. There is an ongoing investigation and we will know more soon.

I am encouraged in the Tulsa shooting based on how quickly the dashcam and helicopter video was released, even though it did show the Tulsa PD in the best light. I am hoping that if there are charges to be filed that it all happens quickly and peacefully. I have not seen video of the Charlotte shooting. I also hope that if there is video it is shown quickly and justice is swift. However that manifests.

My concern is the tense atmosphere in Urban America. In this atmosphere both residents and law enforcement have to be in together. And this makes every encounter more dangerous. Stakeholders in these communities must be willing to engage law enforcement to ease the tension and the atmosphere. Law enforcement have to be willing to make changes to policing and training to ease the same tensions and distrust. Neither side can afford to stand like a north going Zax and a south going Zax nose to nose face to face in the prairie of prax. It is beneficial for all involved to work on real solutions that will make Urban America safer.




Nadra Enzi – Lethal Force The Final Social Program

It boggles my mind at the amount of misplaced sympathy otherwise lucid people direct toward willfully destructive individuals. If the best some can come up with in a 21st century wonderland is repeat offenses and violence, why bother with them? The economic misery of the last 12 years has been borne without assault and larceny by the vast majority of Americans. Is it wise to slap them in the face for being civil and decent under extreme duress?

Ban the box campaigns for felons seeking jobs or reentry programs ignores the plight of non-criminals who can’t find work or enough to sustain themselves. I type as one of those non-criminals, an urban one no less, whose merit is dismissed in a squall of crocodile tears for criminals.
