British News is Covering Robocall Scandal…Where Is the U.S. Media?

During the last two weeks, a dirty, illegal scandal has been playing out across the U.S. making headline news.  In Great Britain.  Meanwhile, the MSM in the U.S. has been complicit in this rotten Liberal scheme through its complete silence.  The Daily Mail has run, yet another, story on the shady liberal Democrat front group, calling themselves the “Women of the 99%“.  This illegal operation involves making tens of thousands of illegal robocalls across the U.S., attacking Rush Limbaugh and Republican lawmakers in battleground districts.

It’s too bad we have to look to the British media to read about breaking stories playing out in “our neighborhood”.  Shame on the U.S. media.

Another story out of today’s Daily Mail,

A top Republican official has accused Democrats of being behind a fresh wave of illegal robocalls made to voters across the country by a shadowy group calling itself ‘The Women of the 99 Percent’.

Pat Brady, Republican party chairman in Illinois, issued a statement to MailOnline demanding a state investigation into the calls, first reported by MailOnline on March 9th.

Voters in five districts in his state received more automated telephone calls yesterday linking Republican members of the House of Representatives to the conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

The automated calls are illegal because they do not state who they are from (there is no known group called The Women of the 99 Percent) or provide a callback number, as required under the US Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991.

‘It is typical that a Democrat front group like this thumbs their noses at the same federal campaign finance laws they like to tout in their own campaign literature,’ Brady said.

He added that it was ‘no coincidence’ that the districts receiving the calls were all on ‘the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) hit list’, he demanding an immediate inquiry.

Republican strategists view the calls are part of a concerted effort by Democrats, from President Barack Obama down, to shift the focus of November’s elections away from the sputtering economy and onto what the Left has branded ‘the Republican war on women’.

Here is the latest video of one of the illegal robocalls from Kevin G. who lives in Rep. Dan Lungren’s district in California:

The calls were placed in at least 25 Congressional districts in at least 12 different states across the U.S.

    Where are the GOP establishment and their complaints. By pushing Mittens and refusing to complain you think they want Imam Obama re-elected or something.

  • T. Thompson

    The only place I have read this story is here on GP and your commenting the Daily caller is the only news reporting this ie where is the msm etc. I do not read those bags but on the other hand, Fox News channel is my main source of unbiased news and I have NOT heard this on Fox either, where are they??????????

    I just called him and told him GREAT JOB, and thanked him for also being a supporter of Israel.

    The U.S. media is hiding from this story the same as they are the Arpaio ForgeryGate story:

    VIDEO: Lord Monckton [on the Dennis Miller radio show]: ‘I’m no birther,’ but Obama birth certificate ‘plainly a forgery’

  • succotash1

    What US media? They died about 4yrs ago.

  • coolidgerules

    I believe PJMedia also has a sory about it.

    No, demonizing Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin for the violence to the black “yute” is front and center. So is the war on women. So is Dick Durbin’s investigation into bounties in the NFL. So is the Etch a Sketch. These ignoramuses could tell me the sky was blue and I would walk outside and check-they’re that crooked.

    The only thing they were right about was they said if I vote for McCain we would have an idiot for VP. I voted for McCain……….and they were right!

    The US media isn’t covering the story because it’s not an information disseminating organ but a propaganda machine.

    It is more powerful than the government itself because without its propaganda arm the government cannot deceive and manipulate the population which it must do to achieve its ends.

    Sarah Palin was virtually taken out by the propaganda press because she wasn’t a player in their power structure. Meanwhile, Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse Investigation of Obama’s qualifications — the details of which are shocking — is virtually ignored; if it’s not reported by the “big” guys, the so-called MSM, it must not be important, relevant, or true. Check out for news of the Arpaio story.

    Moreover, if we had today a propaganda press that was as rabidly anti-Democrat as the press was anti-Republican during Watergate (and still is today) — and if our Congress today, both Houses, were in Republican hands — Obama would have been impeached already. The press is calling the shots, folks; let it be known far and wide. Nixon’s indiscretions were of a lesser order than those of either Kennedy or Johnson, yet the press covered for them. Read Victor Lasky, It Didn’t Start With Watergate, 1977.

    Conservatives, please pay attention: there is no “news media” or journalism as you once knew it. There hasn’t been for nearly thirty years. It’s approaching the absurd to continue to listen to good people sob “why isn’t the media caring?” and “why are they so biased” if it was a matter of there being a journalism, but being tainted in its practice.

    It does not exist anymore. Narratives are produced. This by no means should be interpreted as conspiratorial; that is how “news” is produced for you. Walter Lippman, a Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times columnist explained this in the 1920s: you are too stupid to be trusted to form your opinions on your own. They have to be produced for you.

    I worked in a newspaper newsroom in the 1990s and was shocked when I first learned that there is no phenomena of “news happens, we go out and report it.” There isn’t the money to go out and track news down anymore, and furthermore, there is plenty of money to produce the narrative powerful interests need you to believe. It’s not some sinister event, producing your opinion. Didn’t you sit down and watch TV tonight? Everything there is produced for you too. Honestly, most of what you believe is produced. It wouldn’t arrive in some magical vacuum otherwise.

    It is remarkable, however, how one party almost totally controls the production process now. If it wasn’t for talk radio, totalitarianism would be complete. The non-progressive Internet is so tiny that it really doesn’t matter (consider out of 300 million American citizens, how many participate on conservative blogs, for instance).

    You are not free, but in actuality, you weren’t born free. Americans haven’t been free for a very long time. But most Americans are happy, believing in the fiction of a “biased news media” that tells them real news, but slants it. They’re Truman in his show, or simulations in the Matrix, mostly happy to believe that Kony 2012 is something to get worked up about, that a shooting of an “innocent” black teenager by a “white” in Florida is a national incident that proves racism is running rampant, that Obama is “doing things” about the oil price.

    Keep dreaming on and complaining about bias to an otherwise objective news profession.

  • reporting on this will not advance liberal america’s political agenda. advancing the political agenda is the one and only purpose of american tass.

    Oooh, “Women of the 99%”. How spooky! They’re a reeeeal big threat to this country.

    Why keep complaining about something that doesn’t exist? The “U.S. Media”, as you call them, are just leftist propagandists.

    It’s like finding your tree empty on Christmas and crying aloud for Santa Claus.

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear. I had nothing to do with this… just ask David Axelrod.

    My limousine is running and Barney Frank is the back seat. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

  • BurmaShave

    I think some of the British media realize that they can increase their readership by covering US news issues that the MSM is deliberately avoiding.

    I hope they keep it up and excel at it; but no BBC please, its liberal bias is atrocious. We certainly do not need more Morgans and Bashirs.

    “Where Is the U.S. Media?”


  • crackermike

    So let me get this straight. People actually expect Federal Law to apply to Democrats? Laughable. That’s like expecting Beria to investigate Stalin.

  • bobdog

    The American media is voting “Present” on this one, aren’t they.

  • Get use to it. The UK is the only place you will find this kind of reporting anymore. Even Fox news is in the tank for the elitists and the so called moderates that everyone is swooning over.

  • valerie

    The US media is busy promoting the notion that Newt Gingrich has intemperately responded to Barack Obama’s remarks about the Trayvon Martin case.

    Ain’t that something? Barack Obama makes remarks that plainly show he has pre-decided the guilt or innocence of two people based on the color of their skin, Newt calls him on it, and Newt gets portrayed as a racist.

    No, I am not going to cite those fools. I’m not helping dishonest people today. I’m instead going to cite somebody who’s making sense on the topic.

  • flownover

    I am having a hard time accepting the crime here, so they made robocalls ?
    Big deal. Problem is the campaign laws are idiotic,unenforceable, and used equally ineffectively by whoever isn’t In office.
    Not a good year to be a conservative.
    They have the media, but less and less listen or believe.

    Here’s another important story the media is ignoring. Some political bloggers are saying that there could be repercussions more serious than watergate.

    Silence of the Lapdogs
    by Diana West
    Warning: This column contains news of evidence of possible forgery and fraud in the long-form birth certificate of the president of the United States and – bonus – his Selective Service registration card.

    I figure the warning is necessary to prevent Americans, particularly Americans who work in news media and politics, from hurting themselves on any hard, sharp facts that might poke through my discussion of what is surely the biggest scandal to emerge around the seemingly dodgy docs Barack Obama is using to verify his identity.

    I refer to the logic- and history-defying news and political blackout of the March 1 press conference called in Maricopa County, Ariz., by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse……….

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Watch the video. Finally a law enforcement agency has undeniable proof that Obama’s birth certificate is fake. Why would he present a fake document? What’s wrong with the original document, if there is a real one?

    You may want to email this article to all of your like minded email contacts. Or better yet, to all the major media websites, including your local newspapers and TV and radio stations. Shame on them for suppressing Sheriff Arpio’s monumental news event. Shame on them for neglecting to exercise their right to Freedom of the Press……
