The Drudge Trolls with Foxonian Visual Lies

While Right Wing screams about liberal media bias, and they scream even louder when they’re busted flat out lying to their audience (Acorn video, Sherrod video, etc), they continue their assault on reality via any means necessary. To this end, The Drudge Report felt compelled to use the Foxian trick of using visual imagery to lie for them yesterday when they attempted to lay blame for missing Iraq reconstruction money at Obama’s feet.

We all know, of course, that that money went missing during the Bush administration – but that’s because we are….not Fox Drudge drones. In other words, we read and we are informed. Sadly, the folks in the Right Wing Echo Chamber rarely — if ever — hear anything resembling the news, which might explain why they are so angry all of the time, but heck, that’s a chicken or the egg thing.

Media Matters reports:

“The Drudge Report is attempting to link $8.7 billion in Iraq reconstruction money that the DOD reportedly cannot account for to the Obama administration by blaring the headline “Defense Dept. can’t account for $8.7 billion” under an image of President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates. But the Associated Press article Drudge linked to reported that the funds in question predate the Obama administration.”

Gosh, that is so cute! That’s like when Fox rolls footage of officers arresting people and then has a lower third crawling that asks if YOU think it’s right if Obama let’s police intimidate people. Naturally, people tend to blur the two sources of information together and assume they are related, because, well, they would be if Fox were a real news station. And let’s face it, your average Fox viewer is not someone used to thinking for themselves, which is exactly why they love that slogan “We Report, You Decide”. Anyone who so values the appearance of independent thought that they want to wear it like a badge rarely possesses it. It’s kinda sad.

Media Matters points to the original AP article that the Drudge reported from:

“A U.S. audit has found that the Pentagon cannot account for over 95 percent of $9.1 billion in Iraq reconstruction money, spotlighting Iraqi complaints that there is little to show for the massive funds pumped into their cash-strapped, war-ravaged nation.


The $9.1 billion in question came from the Development Fund for Iraq, which was set up by the U.N. Security Council in 2003. The DFI includes revenues from Iraq’s oil and gas exports, as well as frozen Iraqi assets and surplus funds from the defunct, Saddam Hussein-era U.N. oil-for-food program.

Iraq had given the U.S. authorization to tap into the fund, which is held in New York, for humanitarian and reconstruction efforts, withdrawing that approval in December 2007.

With the establishment of the Coalition Provisional Authority, which ran Iraq shortly after the start of the U.S. invasion in 2003 until mid-2004, about $20 billion was placed into the account. The $9.1 billion audited by the Iraq reconstruction inspector general were funds withdrawn from that account between 2004 and 2007.”

So, I guess those guys over at Drudge can’t add or can’t read or are just kinda trolling for hits of rage by lying to their already misinformed and thus vulnerable readers.

I would start a fund for these poor people if they weren’t so gosh darn irritating with their science denying purple dinosaurs walking among us end times abstinence only social Darwinism baloney. We can only hope that the Fox Drudge drones never wake up, because if they’re this angry now, imagine how angry they would be if they ever realized just how used they had been. Luckily for them, Texas is conspiring to make sure that never happens.

What kinda ticks me off is they lost all of this money under Bush and yet they have spent the last year and half screaming bloody murder about deficits. Kinda makes you wonder if they’re really mad about the deficit….or they’re just…mad that they lost an election.

The next time you hear a Right Winger screeching about the “liberal media” (or just see Sarah Palin’s mouth moving), remember that their chief belief is that the best defense is a good offense, so always check your back before apologizing. I guarantee you will find some kind of media knife lodged thusly.

  1. I wonder what one would find if they added up all of the missing money from the Iraq war. Was there not something like 12 billion in hard currency lost within minutes of landing over there?

    You could make 1 million scenarios where this money went, but there is no doubt that it didn’t go to the proper hands. Just the fact that we were sending them hard currency in my mind thanks to prove that was not sent for the US war effort. Money such as that would’ve been through bank transfers.

    As time goes on it wouldn’t surprise me a bit to find out the we are out almost $500 billion in money spent for nefarious purposes around the world based on our war in Iraq. nor would it surprise me to find out that we are doing the same thing in Afghanistan. The fact is we had to bribe the Sunnis to stop attacking us and called a surge is probably precisely what we are doing in Afghanistan right now.

    you don’t just lose $8.7 billion. You give it away. And people have to know about it. There is no doubt in my mind this money will be tracked to sources inside and outside Iraq.

    And this is just another reason out of a half 1 million that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should be in prison

  2. Remember Donald Rumsfeld’s announcement on 9/10/01 that there was $2.3 trillion dollars that he could not account for in Pentagon spending?!? What a convenient time for him to make an announcement like that and it was basically all but overlooked by the media from them on. Whatever happened to all that money? No surprise all of the people in the Bush administration thought the economy was wonderful, right up until the middle of September 2008. They were able to completely overlook the fact that the economy was in shreds because their bank accounts were overflowing. Hannity was screaming at a guest on Hannity & Colmes that everyone he knew was doing great and that the Democratic party was trying to cause fear among the American people because it was their only shot at possibly winning in the election! Why are there so many wealthy morons on TV and in the media?

  3. Perhaps some of you don’t understand how the Zionist Media Industry works. Essentially, Zionist Jews own most so-called news media and play all sides against eachother, while deflecting attention from their orchestration.

    Take, for example, your darling Rush Limbaugh. He’s described as a “Right Wing” “Voice of the Republican Party”…right? Who do he work for? Who signs his check?

    Limbaugh works for Clear Channel Premier Radio Networks which is owned by Clear Channel which is owned by Bain Capital Partners in Boston. The CEO of Bain Capital is Orit Gadiesh is an Israeli national with direct ties to the Israeli Intelligence. Orit Gadiesh, an ISRAELI employs Rush Limbaugh to:

    1) Channel your anger away from Israel and Jews, and
    2) Get you to associate “patriotism” with support for a foreign nation – Israel.

    They also don’t want you discussing Jewish Magic:
    Ever hear of “Jewish Lighting”? Well, there’s also such a thing as “Jewish Magic”. Jewish Magic is when a groups of foreign International Bankers bribe members of congress and the President (Woodrow Wilson, in this case) to enact a law giving a private group of Jewish bankers the exclusive right to “create” your money and lend it to your government for repayment plus interest. Oh…and the interest rate for repayment…is set by those same Jewish bankers. Is that awesome or what folks? Can you imagine the kind of power that a situation like that would entail for that group of Jewish bankers? Just imagine the implications of that kind of power.

    Apparently, Thomas Jefferson could imagine the implications of that kind of power – as he said:

    “‘If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’

    How did Jefferson know that? Because that was the whole reason the Revolutionary War was fought. The Jewish Bank of England was screwing the colonies. Hang on folks…a caller asks “Rush, why are you calling the Bank of England Jewish?” Ok caller, the Bank of England is a “Rothschild” bank. Rothschild means “Red Shield” in German. Rothschild is an assumed name taken by a Jewish banker named Meyer Amschel Bauer – who founded the Bank of England (among others). Gotta know your history folks.
