While it is true that public figures in America can only expect a modicum of privacy, the mainstream media seems to have abandoned that staid principle for a free-for-all look into the emails of Governor Sarah Palin.
The mainstream media has proven beyond a doubt that since 2008, journalism has all but lost its former estate along with its honor and dignity and is now just part of the Obama sanctioned press corps. What; no time to browse through the 24,000 emails sent by Sarah so we need to enlist the help of the public?
Are the NY Times, Huffington Post and other liberal rags understaffed, too lazy or is it all too close to an election year to expect a few real journalist to do their jobs. Time is of the essence so why not call for the public’s help like it was a very urgent edition of ‘America’s Most Wanted.’
Are we at all that surprised that when the liberal media was finally given the lamp of Diogenes, they used it to beat up on the first person they found who was honest and true?
Whatever dirt the mainstream media may not be able to uncover in time for political mudslinging in the 2012 presidential race is now mitigated by the assurance that John Q Liberal public will be able to scrutinize, debate, expostulate and despise every word written by the only serious political challenger to Barack Obama since 2008.
Sadly, we must declare that not every little word Sarah wrote will be available. Under the privacy provision of Alaska’s Constitution, what is known as work product, attorney client privilege and executive deliberative process material will be withheld to the tune of over 2,000 pages and exempt from public scrutiny. Perhaps something is sacred after all!
We don’t yet know how the public will respond to the media’s request for help but the idea of encouraging the public this way could be adapted and made useful in other ways. For instance, we could enlist the public’s help to read the following documents. Most of these come from Barack Obama’s past just like Sarah’s emails.
Start with these: adoption records, Illinois State Bar records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, University of Chicago scholarly articles, passport records, Columbia thesis, Punahou School records, Harvard Law Review articles, Occidental College records, Illinois State Senate records, medical records and the long form birth certificate.
And if you can get them, read the emails of Senator Obama when he served the State of Illinois. C’mon Illinois, step up like your sister state Alaska—we are a big public and if we can handle Sarah’s 24,000 emails we can find time for other reading.
Oh, I forgot, none of these documents have ever been made public but are still tied up in legal battles, secrecy and obfuscation.
To be fair one document that has been released and read by anyone interested is Barack Obama’s birth certificate. But don’t get too comfortable because that will require just a bit more reading to get it clear.
After reading the document released by the White House you may want to go on to read the 22 page complaint filed with the FBI that declares the newly released document is most assuredly a total fraud.
If there’s still time left on your hands you may want to read Jerome Corsi’s bestseller ‘Where's the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.’ Of course Corsi examines a plethora of other missing documents in his book, not just the birth certificate that unlike the release of Palin emails still remain secreted away in obscurity and shadows.
Finally to top off your reading you could peruse the dozens of articles and reports that tell of the worst sustained jobless rate in our history, the health care behemoth that the Supreme Court is on the verge of throwing out and the general disregard for the will of the people and private enterprise that characterize the Obama administration.
Read about the all new foreign policy snafus that look like warfare instead of diplomacy. All this is available via any media source that has not drunk a full helping of mainstream media cool aid.
Liberals like to see themselves as those who are more ‘open minded,’ which implies that they are willing to consider all voices and all viewpoints. After reading all there is to the matters aforementioned is it fair to mention that it is impossible to be open minded if your eyes are closed. Or is it a case of eyes open but understanding closed? (2Cor 4: 4)
Only one question remains for the reading public. What are you reading besides Sarah’s emails? Check the things in the above list and Sarah Palin will begin to look awfully good.
The idea of getting the public to peruse Sarah’s emails has demonic connotations that can’t be avoided. Is the public as ready to jump into the task of finding dirt or something to besmirch the good name of a former governor as is the mainstream media? If so, it only substantiates the prediction that near the last days there will be a full and ample supply of demons released on an unbelieving and totally unsuspecting world.
Whether you believe the apostle Paul’s warning of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places,” or you have recently read Ann Coulter’s new book “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America” you would have to admit that going after Palin like this seems like the frantic scrambling of the ogres and minions.
In Jesus’ day there was a man found with so many demons that when asked to identify themselves they simply replied, “My name is Legion: for we are many.” (Mark 5: 9b) In the prophetic promises of the Bible it is the legions of people who will all have devils that bring in the dark days of the rule of antichrist. We could say that the scripture promises that there will be enough devils to go around.
Perhaps the mainstream media will have no trouble finding enough spiteful little devils to scour over Sarah’s emails with an evil and vindictive eye. It does seem to fit the times!
