Right or Left Wing Media Bias? by Cindy Sheehan

“…from the time Casey died until today, my focus has shifted from blaming George Bush only, to blaming the entire system: The Military-industrial-Congressional-Prison-Media-Banker Complex…or whatever you want to call it.”

“I have integrity. I oppose war, torture, economic oppression and environmental degradation no matter who is in the White House or what political party he belongs to. I have been one of President Obama’s earliest and most ardent critics, but where’s the media coverage when I protest the carnage now that Obama is president? Where’s Air America calling me to comment on the war crimes that Obama has already committed?  Why won’t most “progressive” online sites print my articles anymore (except Oped News and”

  1. Rady and All,

    I agree. Op Ed Snooze still allows Cindy, Kevin Zeese and our lad Kevin to post.

    Simply as a way to pretend that they are “progressive” and allow “dissent.” That is precisely how astro-turf organizations and groups give themselves left wing “credibility.”

    As an aside folks, I just e mailed Cindy Sheehan and asked her to come visit and even join the COTO Crew site.


    • Rob is a name-dropper. His ambition has him sniffing after
      fame and the famous. What he lacks is principle
      and loyalty….which is why I titled one response to him
      “what have you done for me lately?” Forget him.

  2. Rady, perhaps we should invite Cindy ?

  3. LOL Michael… look.. we posted at the exact same time. I just turned my computer on and found this. I think Cindy would be happy to join us 🙂

  4. wow, guess you might share that with cindy sheehan rady.

    i read her post understanding it has a lot to do with what people here on this site believe in – that the left/right system is a farce and that the media – depending on their status – either ignorantly buys into it or is part of it. that’s why i posted it.

    i suppose not having been a part of it i don’t have the same visceral reaction to the mention of opednews – in fact the way she wrote it with the news separate from oped i didn’t even pick up on the reference. just seemed a good end-point for people to click to read the rest on her website to help her trafffic.

    don’t know rob kall personally and don’t really care. i do know a few weeks ago she was interviewed by him on a philly radio show so i guess there is some interest there.

    really was just hoping to spur some conversation about the corporate media. sorry you’re having to still deal with all the bad memories.

    something about the Casey Boy story today really makes me want to focus on harnessing good energy and really pushing forward with a mission. maybe we oughta perform an online group exorcism of opedlose and come out better and stronger!

      that today we hate and fear — unruly men, disturbers of the peace,
      men who resent and denounce what Whitman called ‘the insolence
      of elected persons’ — in a word, free men.”

  5. I just emailed Cindy @ soapbox too. I mentioned your headlining her article Rady and told her you were banned shortly after, along with the rest of us. Hopefully she will consider joining with us.

  6. Rady

    Does this mean we can all blame you for the Op Ed Snooze banning and purge?

    If so, well THANKS.


    You got COTO unmuzzled.


    Well great minds think alike, I guess.


  7. You don’t remember our emails when I was banned back then?

    • Well, he erased my comments that questioned about him calling for blind support of Obama and in that case, it was support for his stipulations on the GM bailout, which I argued was Union Busting – that it would ultimately lead to massive layoffs and reductions in salaries for the UAW workers.

      But of course, he really removed the comment because other people were agreeing with me on the issue (Steve the Leser didn’t of course).

      So yes, once he started doing that, like I said before, I posted a few comments about censorship on other threads.

  8. This isn’t the one but it’s a good one! (two good ones)

    ” It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it. ”

    Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

    “Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them. ”

    Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

  9. Here it is:

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

    Samuel Adams

  10. One more from Sam Adams:

    “It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.”

  11. This is what English scholar John Locke wrote on tyranny, which is now destroying our country

    Locke wrote extensively on the distinction between democracy and tyranny. Of democracy, he wrote, “when any number of men have, by the consent of every individual, made a community, they have thereby made that community one body, with a power to act as one both, which is only by the will and determination of the majority.”[9]

    Locke defined tyranny as “the exercise of power beyond right.”[10] Locke cautioned that all governments, regardless of form, are susceptible to tyranny. Republics, just like monarchies, can sink into tyranny when those in authority exceed the authority entrusted them by the people.[11]

    Locke wrote that “wherever law ends, tyranny begins.”[12] When tyranny begins, the people are justified to form government anew.

    Locke explained, “When by the miscarriages of those in authority, [legislative power] is forfeited; upon the forfeiture…. it reverts to the society, and the people have a right to act as supreme, and continue the legislative in themselves; or to erect a new form, or under the old form place it in new hands, as they think good.”[13]

    Thus, with respect to the natural right to throw off the yoke of tyranny, Locke’s scholarship provides precedent for the Declaration of Independence: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it; and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

  12. Does the Federal Reserve have a charter?

  13. I just copied each and every one of these great quotes.

    I will find a use for them some time.

    Thank You COTO

    • Here’s another you might like:

      “We are, heart and soul, friends to the freedom of the press. It is however, the prostituted companion of liberty, and somehow or other, we know not how, its efficient auxiliary. It follows the substance like its shade; but while a man walks erect, he may observe that his shadow is almost always in the dirt. It corrupts, it deceives, it inflames. It strips virtue of her honors, and lends to faction its wildfire and its poisoned arms, and in the end is its own enemy and the usurper’s ally. It would be easy to enlarge on its evils. They are in England, they are here, they are everywhere. It is a precious pest, and a necessary mischief, and there would be no liberty without it. ”
      Fisher Ames, Review of the Pamphlet on the State of the British Constituiton, 1807

  14. The ONLY reason Rob Kall posts her articles is becuase Rob Kall is USING her for his own fame. Rob is piggyback riding her and Cindy is not wise enough to see that! No wonder she sticks up for him! She desperately wants to be heard when many people want her to just go away at this point. She is shooting herself in her own foot at this point and Rob is laughing at her while using her.

    Apparently she is not wise enough to see that her son died fighting for the creation of a new world order on behalf of Israel. We went into Iraq on Israel’s behalf.

    Does anyone recall the suicide bombers Saddam was paying on a daily basis to go into Israel? Some families were paid upwards of $25,000.00 each for their suicide bomber family members! Paid with American cash through French banks and UN programs!

    Israel basically told the US to stop Saddam, the CIA employee that the US put into power who turned on the US! If we did not take care of our problem then Israel threatened to light the middle east up. In go the Marines to Iraq on behalf of Israel to protect them as required by international law.

    And Cindy blew her wad on Bush, and now today she wants to change her attack onto something else she wants to blame. No wonder no one listens to her any more. She did it to herself. And today Rob is all too happy to help Cindy just so he can get his big fat mug on the front page with her as though he were a supporting contributing person to her when in fact he is just using her for his own benefit and she is not smart enough to realize it!

    At least that is how I see it today.

    You blew it Cindy! And Rob Kall is laughing at you!

    And now with her change of attack, the world is laughing at her. Why didn’t she use all her steam up front on the NWO crowd to begin with instead of wasting it on Bush who we all knew would be out of office soon?

    I feel for her loss, but she completely blew it her own self. She has been used by the media and now they no longer care about anything she has to say except for some self-serving wannabe named Rob Kall over on OEN.

  15. I forgot to mention. Cindy really sounds pathetic when she whines about how no one calls her any more and how no one seems to care about her articles except for just two so called progressive websites that she named: OEN and michaelmichael?

    This shows just how low she has gone. All the way to the bottom of the barrel to find the scum like Rob Kall who she allows herself to be photographed with.

    All the way to the bottom Cindy! You have no one to blame but yourself! Now let your son rest in peace and you go away to your lonely life you made for yourself after turning everyone close to you away from you.

    You are bitter and angry and the world is done listening to you because today you don’t sound like you even know what you are talking about:

    “…my focus has shifted from blaming George Bush only, to blaming the entire system: The Military-industrial-Congressional-Prison-Media-Banker Complex…or whatever you want to call it.”

    Cindy, you are still clueless! And now that Bush is gone you are redirecting your attack and you still have no clue who to really blame today which is exactly why no one is listening any more.

    Hint, hint… central bankers are who were behind the whole thing. Not some businesses profitting from the war.

    Your son died fighting for the NWO. Your son died fighting for the federal reserve bank, IMF, Bank of England and the nation the profits those banks bought and paid for named Israel.

    Today you will find the Rothschild name on a brass plaque at the front door of the Israeli Court of Justice in Tel Aviv. That is where the profits of the Federal Reserve have gone to. And that is why the world is at war today and that is why we have a military business complex today.

    It never was Bush’s fault! Which is exactly why the media played you out on it! And today you still can’t see that!

    Cindy, look closely at Rob Kall’s eyes in the photo you allowed him to take of you two sharing beer together and publish on OEN. Look at the wolf inside and know you are still being used! Rob is trying to get the last little bit of use out you that he can and you willingly give it to him in your desperation to be heard today!

    How low can you go Cindy? All the way down to the scum on the bottom of the barrel with Rob Kall who is one of them!

    Yes Cindy, Rob is laughing at you and so too are many in the world. Bush is now laughing at you too!

    You have one lonely future ahead of you.

  16. Gee, I did not mean to rock the boat, but I am no fan of Cindy She-hen. I see some of you really like her and want her to come here. Whooops!

  17. I think what finally did Saddam in was trying to start an oil bourse (selling oil but not in $dollars!)……..and now everyone including Iran and Russia are doing it.
