EX POST FACTO VOTING RIGHTS!

Nov. 17, 2014  By Jack Jodell (in association with Fair and Unbalanced.com – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).

Happy start of the new week! the holidays are coming up soon, and this week’s doubleheader consists of yet another two excellent podcasts by my wise friend, Burr Deming, the creator and chief author over at the superb website known as Fair and Unbalanced.com. This first podcast is called “Ex Post Facto Voting Rights”, and the second is entitled “Nixon, Mandela, Bachmann, God Exposed as Gang Members.”

In fact, delegates put protections directly into the Constitution. One said Congress couldn’t pass laws like that. The other said individual states couldn’t pass laws or punishments retroactively.

But that’s what the Governor of Iowa is doing by executive order. And a young woman was prosecuted for trying to vote.”

=========================================================== For his second podcast, Burr points out an incident which occurred recently in my hometown of Minneapolis, MN. Our local ABC affiliate, KSTP Ch. 5 had recently run a ridiculously untrue story about Democratic mayor Betsy Hodges supposedly teaming up with a local supposed “gamg member.” The story was as preposterous and sensationalistic (and FALSE) as anything one might see on Fox “News.” The story was so bogus, in fact, that arch-conservative station owner Stanley Hubbard was recently confronted over it by a gathering of college students. As Burr will show in this podcast, this is yet another example of slimy conservative “journalism” – so much for the so-called “liberal media” conservatives love to lament about!

burr demingIn Burr’s own words, Fox News and the terrorist fist jab was unintentionally funny. The local Minneapolis television station and the secret gang signal became hilarious. The ethic itself is not always so humorous.  

Take any accusation, rumor, or suspicion, and present it to a predominantly conservative audience as legitimate speculation. A large proportion of the public is led into a cocoon of comforting delusion.  

Is Barack Obama really from Kenya? 

Does Obamacare include death panels to decide when the elderly should die?  Is President Obama trying bring Ebola to the United States?  

We report, you decide.”
