The Winds are changing – Keith Olbermann, a voice of reason gone?

Somehow it had to come. Another voice of reason drowned in the sewer of lies, distortion and propaganda.

I mean, who can be surprised that when Comcast came in, Olbermann had to go? Didn’t we see the signposts already when KO suspended “Worst Persons in the world” segment in November?

Fixed Noice donates a million dollars to GOP.  No reaction! Keith Olbermann donates 2300 dollars to a few Dems, he gets suspended. It seems that only RWers are allowed to practice their innaliablae rights given to them by the Constitution.

Didn’t we see the signposts after the shootings in Arizona when KO suspended same segment once again?

Comcast isn’t interested in anyone who would bash them on a regular basis. It’s been more the norm than the exception that progressive voices have been demoted, sacked, or taken over by special interest, heavily invested in a corporate takeover of the airwaves.

As soon as Google and youtube became too free and popular, RW forces have their vampire looks on these. when voices attack them on a constant basis, these voices have to be silenced.

As Keith Olbermann can proucdly stepå into the ranks of great American voices that gave us the Europeans an impression that not all americans have gone into a mass psychosis: HL Mencken. Edward R. Murrow. Walter Cronkite. Hunter s. Thompson. In the Iraq war frenzy where practically every news outlet was waving the flag, calling for “towelhead” blood, KO came in as fresh air in the stench of Goebbels like American media.

His departure from MSNBC so conveniently just before comcast and the leadership of MSNBC signed the contract, KO was told that this last Friday would be his last broadcast on the channel. Is it hypoerbolical to mention a conspiracy here? Or just RW special interests whom can’t stand critical voices?

Is KO silenced for good, or is he free and on the loose, planning on a frontal attack on the corrupted MSM, and their RW talking points and bosses? When can we expcect a wikileaks kind of exposure of the whole deal, and the motivation behind it?

Is it too soon to draw ones one conclusions? And when is it time to draw conclusionos? When KO will make a statement himself?

I am not the only writer, and a news junkie to have more questions than answers. And as long as we don’t get any answers from the players themselves, we’d have to do our own research, trying to stitch the pieces together.

This is what Buzzflash editor Mark Karlin wrote over the weekend:

According to James Wolcott of Vanity Fair, the chairman of Comcast Spectacor, Ed Snider, is funding a right-wing cable channel/Internet site called “RightNetwork.” Wolcott sniffs at “RightNetwork” as a “pseudo-populist operation” starring an array of right-wing freaks.

Ominously, Wolcott notes “that it was Snider who invited Sarah Palin to drop the hockey puck at the Flyers’ season opener in 2008, and Palin’s been dropping pucks ever since.”

There’s little reason to doubt that Olbermann’s abrupt exit from MSNBC was the first puck to drop as Comcast slap shots MSNBC away from being a progressive beachhead.

Will these turn of events as of late, and as little information leak out by and by scare the progressive voices that are left at MSNBC? Will Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews and others “moderate2 their language?  To be more kind to their RW counterparts?

Being “fair and balanced” have almost inevitably been a code word for “attack the leftwing commie extremists”, and kiss any RW corporate powermonogers’ ass.

How far will the leadership of MSNBC, and comcast dare to go before they are being exposed as a byunch of cronyistic criminal minds with one thing in mind: to completely annihilate free press, and Truth?

Is their ultimate goal to turn the America into an idiocracy?

Or will the spearheads of voices of reason strike back hard and unexpected?

Personally I think that Julian Assange and Wikileaks DO spread the dirt they have on Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, Sean Hannity, Billo and Glenn Beck. Though will they be treated the same way as how these creeps would treat the progressive movement in America, or would any RW freak be excused once again for any mischief they have been cheerleaders for or purpotrated the last 10 years?

What we do know, is that with Keith Olbermann, a beast was woken. The voiceless and the silenced got their breath of what Corporate America really stood for!

While Sharon Angle only wanted to go to “unbiased” news outlets whom wouldn’t bagder her (code word for pointed and direct questions), and went only to her GOP home at FOX, same channel invited progressives, weak and feeble, or progressives in name only exactly to bagder them! talk about coward politicians and distorting propaganda channels.

Politicians SHOULD be bagdered by the media. They should not use the media as a source of informercials.

Another example of the difference between the decency og Keith Olbermann and the beast himself, Billo:

While FOX invited George Carling, they almost immediately started to shout over him, like they always do when they have someone on the show they do not agree with. And they dragged his name through the mud after he died. Would they have dared to do the same with John Cleese?

Olbermann on the other hand knew what is truth, and what is bullshit! And often, truth tellers are being supressed, or tried being overrun or silenced by the moronic, Reactionary Right. But their attempts fails every time.

It’s true what Spider Jerusalem once said in one of the chapters:

Lies become News, and Truth obsolete…

But I want to steal some words from another excellent writer from DU. Words that gives also me, a small time blogger, a traveller, a some sort of hired PC geek hopes that the good fight is not over. It’s not even the beginning of the end….

Keith Olbermann is not dead. He was not beamed to Neptune, never to be seen or heard from again.

Write it down, carve it in stone, make a note, and bet the farm:

Olbermann will be back.

Somewhere, somehow, some day, in one form or another, Mr. Olbermann will be with us again. We will hear or read his own words on the matter of his departure, and then we will hear him again, and again, and again. Giants do not fall easily, and this particular era of political commentary is not over by a long chalk. Edward R. Murrow had his own troubles with management in the darkness of the McCarthy days, and it did not keep him down or silent one iota. So shall it be with Mr. Olbermann in these dark days of corporate hegemony.

Same as it ever was.

Giants do not fall easily. Count on it.

In the meantime, good night, and good luck.



Fabelaktige Amalie fra Kaukasus

Mens det jeg vil kalle for en jentunge, vil en eks. Bjørneboe skole elev som kaller seg statminister ikke møte henne skal sendes ut som en kriminell. En Jonas! En Blåmann! En liten Otto!

Nei, det kan jeg forstå! Da måtte han møte enhver papirløse flyktning som tør å stå fram i lyset etter en viss bok! Han ville bli opptatt i ukesvis framover! Det er derfor bedre da å lene seg til regelverket! For det er da man skjønner at man har mistet in sjel.

Nei! Slik skal ikke norske statsministre måtte tåle! De menneskelige konsekvensene av en opprettholdt politikk! For statsministre skal ikke ha sjel!

Det koster mye ¨være statsminister i Norge. Man kan risikere å ende opp på cipralex og andre lyekkepiller. Bedre det enn å røyke seg en joint og se realitetene i øynene på hva slags strutser man egentlig har vært hele sine liv. Så lenge man får tildelt sin plass i Bildeberg, så spiller et valgnederlag opg sammenligning med Stapo i 1942 ingen rolle. Det virker for meg som om Jens ville ha gjort det samme i 1942, så lenge forskriftene følges. Og svinet ønsker ikke å treffe på ansiktet for hans egen dårlige samvittighet.

Da er den fabelaktige Amalie fra Kaukausus en liten pris å betale. Spesielt når man som embedsmann ikke skal måtte møte konsekvensen av sin salamanderpolitikk øye til øye. Amalie risikerer kun å betale med sitt liv. I det store og det hele spiller ikke et aldri så lite liv noen rolle. Så lenge de humane prinsippene opprettholdes!

Jeg håper at både vår statsmininister vil sove godt inatt uten for mange sovepiller og whiskey. Selv kan jeg anbefale et glass av pillenene, og en flaske med de irske dråpene.  For min medisin til den norske statsministeren vil gi en meget lang søvn.

Slik at vi kan få erstattet statsministerstolen med skikkelige mennesker med følelse, og ekte empati slik som den Fabelaktige Amalie… Fra Norge….

Og jeg skammer meg over den regjeringen fra Norge jeg indirekte valgte selv ved å la vær å stemme dem på huet og ræva ut….

Marie Amalie – Norwegian Shame, once again…

Maria Amalie is her name. She was born in was was known as Soviet Union. For reasons, her parents fled Kaukasus when she was 15. She came to Norway at 16. And gone to school in the country of Nansen ever since. She is without papers. Yet still managed to go to school, and getting herself an education.

Now, the courts have decided to throw her out.

Her crime?

Being an “illegal alien”. Her mistake? Being open about it! Norwegian government has done this before. Thrown out  a pregnant woman back to a vindictive ex. husband in the security forces. We have thrown out traumatized single mothers from Somalia; a victm of mass rape, they threw her out to a bench in a park in an Italy with a RW demagogue and clown named Berlusconi whom thrives in anti-immigrant rhetorics.

And now, a Caucasian girl who’s been writing about her fears, and gotten these fear publisized, and now turned to reality.


Because parapagraphs are sacred in Norway!

Nacht Und Nebel!

The police came to get her just minutes after she left holding a speech in the Nansen School in Lillehammer. Late at night they came. Yet only hours after the attepted secret arrest, the stoy was all over the media. It would be much easier for the Power mongers to do these things in secrcy, would it not? Then they wouldn’t have to face crowds like this!

It would be much easier to send her out in secrecy the 22nd January to an uncertain fate. I hear that people from Kaukasus is not very well treated by Russian nationalists today.

It seems more and more that we live in an Orwellian society. Known extremists are getting a round the clock police protection.  Extremists are getting free speech in the Middle of Oslo. Under police protection.

And teir colleagues are whining about tough working conditions, while having to use 5 big policemen to arrest one small woman whom have never done anything wrong, nor posed a threat to anyone.

I guess she, or at least her case would pose as a threat to our Norwegian government hare being time and time again for what they are and what they truly stand for.

What isreally ironic, ia that our Minister of Justice Knut Storberget, the man whom have the last word in this case sent her a thank you note for the book she once gave him. And now, he, and a rigid justice system is jugding her to an unkown fate without humane regards.

My heart goes out to her and her closest. Not because I am soft. Not because it cries “oh give me sympathy”, but out from empathy. Sometimes saying goodbye for the last time is the hardest thing to do.

And supporting Maria Amelie agains a government that has seemed to go insane is basically the right thing to do…


Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.
H. L. Mencken



Give me some blasphemy!

It makes life worth living!

Give me some blasphemy, and step on some sore religious toes!

As if the religious freaks gives others respect!

Give me some blasphemy! Make some cartoons!

And make the fundies go insane!

Give me some blasphemy!

And challenge the existence of the invisible spook in the sky!

Piss in a christening fountain!

Barf in a bishops pointy hat!

Give the dogmatic robots something to whine about!

And make them defend their insatiable claims.

Quote their books, take a stand!

And prove to them that their dogmas of faith is nothing more than the extention

of the tooth fairy and Santa Claus.

that their faith is nothing more than selfish dreams

imposed on people whom are too weak of opting out

and fending off

Send this to your local priest or imam…
