Right Wing Liars: Michael Charles Master, James David Manning, GiniCorp, and ATLAH World Ministries Aug-02-2010 01:01 Ersun Warnke Business/Economy Reporter These people are hypocrites, liars and con artists, pure and simple. (EUGENE, Ore.) - ATLAH World Ministries is a bizarre “Christian” ministry operated in Harlem by an ex-felon named James David Manning. In a notorious Fox News interview, Manning stated of Obama: “His African in heat father went a-whoring after a trashy white woman. Thus, it can be observed that Manning is a low rent shill who serves the function of repeating stock racist bigotry, which would be more fitting for a KKK rally, on National Television. Manning keeps an interesting set of friends for a guy who advocates the racial cleansing of Harlem, and throwing out the “doctors,” “lawyers,” and “rich whites.” Michael Charles Master, who Manning calls a “close personal friend” in a video testimonial for Master’s book “Save American Now,” is a former employee of IBM and executive at Amdahl[2]. Michael Master’s portfolio of published work is thin. [4] D.C.

PublicChristian The Right Wing and Their Media Empire - Fact Checkers Need Not Apply I’ve complained many, many times on BC about how the Right Wing seems to give no consideration whatsoever to the importance of accuracy and factuality of the information they publish, but I can’t help but wonder just how big their lies have to be before Joe Everyman starts seeing the Far Right for what they really are. It’s not as if the Left is always completely truthful, but as I’ve pointed out so often before, it’s a matter of degree. The Right will see ONE fault by the Left and raise hell about it, and never seem to notice that their own faults are much more severe (see “Iraq War”, for one), and many times more numerous. Just today we’ve been informed that a Mexican drug cartel has invaded Texas near Laredo and took over two ranches. The fact that it never happened doesn’t appear to matter that much. But the above is only the latest example. So where does this all mean? (FYI, there is NO comparable list of ‘inaccuracies’ by what the Right calls the ‘liberal-controlled media’.

The 4 Percent Solution - By James Jay Carafano Even though the first U.S. presidential debate was not about national security, the military made a brief but striking appearance, with candidate Mitt Romney lamenting what he charged were President Barack Obama's "dramatic cuts to our military." He said: "I do not believe in cutting our military. I believe in maintaining the strength of America's military." Obama, for his part, countered that Romney wanted "$2 trillion in additional military spending that the military hasn't asked for." The stark contrast raises the question: Is the United States investing adequately for its future defense? Obama's long-term plans place defense last among the major priorities of federal government spending. In contrast, Romney has repeatedly stated that he thinks annual defense spending should rise to about 4 percent of GDP -- or about $720 billion a year. The answer to that question is -- like everything pertaining to the Pentagon's budget -- complicated. But even the QDR lowballed real defense needs.
