If you have any doubt the mainstream media is in the tank for Obama, even Fox News, then let it be dispelled quickly.
There is a story that could destroy Obama’s reelection campaign. It is not being offered on the mainstream media.
What is this story and how do we know it would destroy Obama?
It is the story of the Egyptian hostage crisis and the Iranian hostage crisis destroyed Jimmy Carter.
Right now in Egypt, there are 19 Americans being held hostage. One of them is the son of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. The 19 Americans are all workers fro NGOs or Non-Governmental Organizations.
The Egyptian government is now preparing show trials for these 19 Americans. This should be headline news. 19 Americans, including the son of an American cabinet secretary are being held hostage in Egypt. Yet there is nothing from the drive by media.
Do a Google search for “Egyptian hostage crisis.” Nothing comes up from any of the major media.
There are many of us who remember 1979. The facts are eerily similar. In 1979, America’s second worst President in history encouraged a revolt against the Shah of Iran. The Shah had many faults and his secret police were notorious for being vicious in their actions against opponents of the Shah.
But the Shah was pro-American.
Carter pressured the Shah to let the Ayatollah Khomeini return from exile and eventually pressured him to step down from power. Iran turned into an Islamic republic, which to this day threatens America.
On November 4, 1979, Iranian “students” overran the American Embassy in Teheran and took our Embassy workers hostage for 444 days.
Carter’s bungling of the Iranian hostage crisis is viewed as one of the primary reasons Ronald Reagan soundly defeated Carter in 1980.
Today, Obama sits on the edge of defeat. The economy, much like in 1980 is cratering. Unemployment is at very high levels and about to go higher. Gas prices have spiked creating pain at the pumps.
Now Obama faces his own hostage crisis.
The media is being silent on this crisis, because it is the one thing that could put a nail in his reelection efforts.
The real news here is that under Obama, as it was under Carter, no one fears America. What ever else you want to say about George W. Bush, does anyone believe the Egyptians would have tried this with Bush?
For some of the news agencies, it is not really shocking. MSNBC might as well put the Obama reelection logo up right next to their logo.
But Fox News we generally think better of.
The real moral of this story is we need a true conservative network that will compete with ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox. Five of the six are in the tank for the left. Fox at one point was actually a somewhat conservative network but no longer.
Meanwhile, we conservatives need to remind the rest of America. There is a hostage crisis. 19 Americans are being held hostage in Egypt and this is Obama’s hostage crisis.
He needs to pay the same price for this crisis that Jimmy Carter paid for his.
Obama the Muslim must be delighted with all of the protection he is getting with the news media.
Obama won't get any protection from Newt. This just in from Fox:
Gingrich has called Obama the most dangerous President in the history of Modern Day America.
He has called it what it is.
Sandy I too have heard the story told and read article on the subject. I don't remember which source now, but thanks for your post. Read Here: http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/8/critics-slam-obama-han...
Thank you for the link. I had heard nothing, but I won't even watch fox anymore.
This is just shocking to me. "This from the article you linked":
"The U.S. each year gives $1.3 billion in military aid that stems from Egypt’s 1979 peace treaty with Israel, and American taxpayers provide about $250 million in annual economic aid."
I ask, WHY ARE WE STILL SENDING AID TO EGYPT? If it started in 1979 because there was a peace treaty with Israel. Is there still an existing peace treaty? I am sure Egypt is no longer on friendly terms with the USA. We must be one of the dumbest places on earth. We are in debt ourselves. Unbelievable. Has our country even contacted Egypt about the Americans they are holding?
Sure looks to me like Egypt has broken the treaty! So why are we still helping them? Oh I forgot - Obumer our Muslim President is trying to spend/give away all of our money he can!
Funny I have not seen it. Do a Google search and you come up with nothing from the drive by media.
There was a mention of it in a Fox story two weeks ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTnlBUYLngA
I Googled "American hostages in Egypt" and found nothing published by the LameStreamMedia.
It's been on the drudge report..
Uk tv & papers are covering it more than US media. It was on Fox & Friends last week..
The point is, that during the Carter administration, the news story was front page, every day. It was: interviews with families of the captives, analysis by gurus, etc. If it's in there, it's not a big deal this time.
They may have covered it but I watch FOX every day for 3 or 4 hours (OReily, Hannity, Greta always, plus more usually) and though they may have mentioned it, I missed it if they did!
Dear Sandy, do you remember how the show Nightline started?? It was Ted Koppel on the air every night that the hostages in Iran were being held. The show was on EVERY NIGHT for a half hour, on ABC, with daily countdown, reminding us of the hostages and there situation. This is what FOX should be doing!!! Even though the show had no name originally, it became Nightline eventually, and became a regular fixture nightly after local news broadcasts. WHERE IS THE NEW NIGHTLINE???? I have heard about the hostages in Egypt periodically on FOX, you are correct. BUT.....they should be talking about it daily, constantly, and on every broadcast until the DRIVE BY MEDIA is FORCED to discuss it!!! We are doing a terrible disservice to these people being held captive.......THE WHOLE WORLD should be screaming about it!!!!
