Do You Want to Support Ben Swann and Keep Him on the Air?

A message to everyone who supports Ben Swann (he's a hero of mine): Please don't just watch his videos on YouTube. The advertising money will go to some random person.

Instead go straight to the source! The link below links directly to the reality check main website on Fox 19. That way the ad money goes directly to his station, and the owners get a MUCH better idea about just how many people watch him (due to the large number of website hits)!

You can also sign up for the email list so that they send you an email every time there is a new reality check. This way, if the station faces increasing pressure to cancel his show, they will be making enough extra money from ad revenue that they will reconsider.

If you really want to support Ben Swann, please do it this way!

spot on

Mr. Swann gets it.

And America for the most part, THANKFULLY, gets it.

Truth in journalism?

From Ben Swann there is! :)

Governments love civilians,

Governments love civilians, but fear citizens.

2nd Amendment

1973 Edition Guinness Book of World records. Crime and Punishment. Greatest Mass Killings.

Lists:
China - 26.3 million Chinese killed during the regime of Mao Tse-tung.

USSR - 8-10 million victims during the great purge.

Nazi Germany - 4-6 million

It is my understanding that in each of these that gun registrations and/or gun owner registrations were used by the state to systematically disarm the populous, not all at once less the people rise up and defend themselves. Instead one group or neighborhood at a time.

An unarmed populous is a herd waiting for the slaughter.

I'm pretty sure if someone added up all the deaths from guns in this country since we became a nation. Then after subtracting suicides, civil war victims and police shootings, the number would be far less than 4 million.

If someone really cared about shooting victims, ending the war on drugs would be a good place to start or helping your neighbors find solutions to their problems (not government handouts, but neighbor helping neighbor).

Notice the 2nd amendment never mentions guns specifically, the intent was for the citizens to have "arms" capable of taking out a corrupt or over reaching government. In this day and age that would include assault weapons and weapons for taking out drones to mention a few.

Mighty mountains in grandeur stand, but tiny raindrops turn them to sand! Noah, I think I just felt a raindrop!!

Gun Contol Works!

Just ask Hitler, Mao and Stalin!!!

Great bumper sticker idea!

Concise and Meaningful!

Ice-T had the guts to say what

even most republicans won't say.

The 2nd amendment is our last line of defense against tyranny!
To protect us from police!

All I hear from republicans is drivel about sport shooting rights.

Ben, a Swan among Geese, a Diamond in the Rough

Another piece of evidence that Swann is a diamond in the journalism rough. Swann takes an issue, studies it, dissects it, explains it and leaves the viewer feeling, This guy is a learner. Where the common journalist regurgitates and is stationary, Swann ponders and progresses.

In that way, learning, we DPers are journalists. Throughout the day every day we write our experiences and what we research. Learn, learn, learn is what we do. To the learner, shine on you crazy diamond.

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people.

Piers should just shut up.

Second Amendment, U.S. Constitution

The 2012 election season continues to be a detailed exercise in U.S. History. Our Founding Fathers were both genius and divinely-guided. How long has it been that "We The People" have failed to understand or address the expressed intention of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Now may indeed be the time for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of their country. Yikes!

Piers Morgan

Seems like no one told Piers Morgan how we do things over here in the colonies.

yup, I wish there was a button that I can press,

that will have an airhorn decibel "You Feckless English SUBJECT!" blaring anytime any Brit-ish emigre utters horrifically statist nonsense on American TV, in their studio, live.

lol, like that's gonna happen.

whether it's by design or not, I personally find it obnoxious that because for the most part, anyone who speaks with an 'English accent' in the American media context, automatically is SEEN, and 'sounds,' and SEEMS rather intelligent to the uneducated American sheeple populaces' ears, more and more the cable news are replacing American anchors with Britons to do their propaganda.

It's like our own MSM propagandist turds aren't 'good enough' to the Ruling Class. lol!

as if it's not bad enough that when American films and TV need someone to play a 'tough American' male lead, somehow their go to is an Australian or a Kiwi, or a Scot: think Russell Crowe, Karl Urban, Gerard Butler.

Seriously, is there an American "Marlon Brando" or "Robert DeNiro" of our generation?? like WTF??

Seriously, how did we get to a point where the best actor capable of playing a truly old school American sheriff, is an Aussie??

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longmire_%28TV_series%29

by the way, Longmire IMO is one of the best written characters/show since DeadWood, and extremely well played by Robert Taylor, who also played one of the 'Agents' in the Matrix Trilogy.

ach, don't mind me: my minor popculture pet peeves.
