Try a story in regard to the "democrat" Mark Ritchie in Lauren Radomski's reporting:
Voters to Decide Whether to Require IDs at Polls
Maybe some real political background on the leftist Mark Ritchie would include:
Mark Ritchie was the Secretary of State who certified Al Franken's win on a recount. He was a Sec of State Project candidate
Since 2006 the Democracy Alliance, a left leaning influence group funded by George Soros among others, has had remarkable success in targeting and claiming Secretary of State's offices in 11 of 13 critical states they targeted, including Ohio, Minnesota and Iowa. It is called the Secretary of State Project.
Mark Ritchie was the Secretary of State who certified Al Franken's win on a recount. He was a Sec of State Project candidate and here's the result.
(Mary) Kiffmeyer is "absolutely sure" that Ritchie's efforts to eliminate voting regulations ensured Franken's victory.More on Mark Ritchie:
"The first thing he did when he got into office was to dismantle the ballot reconciliation program we started. Under that program districts are required to check that the number of ballots issued by matching them with the number of ballots cast," she said, "that way we know immediately that the vote count is accurate."
But that isn't what happened, she said. We now have 17,000 more ballots cast than there are voters who voted and no way to determine what went wrong. Why anyone would eliminate that basic check, I don't know," she said.
Exposed! Another top Dem was member of socialist party
The New Party and Obama Obama’s Third-Party History
Maybe some background would point to George Soros's Open Society Page to show they march in lockstep. George Soros Open Society Foundations
'It doesn't matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes.'
Instead we were treated to these other stories just this week by Lauren Radomski at KSTP
North Mpls. Bakery to Use Grant to Hire More Teen Workers
"A $25,000 grant is helping a north Minneapolis bakery hire more young people - good news for teenagers looking for summer jobs.
Cookie Cart will use the Youth RISE grant, along with other funding, to hire 145 teens this year. Fifty-five are on payroll now, with 20 hired so far this summer - and they're still adding staff.
The 15-to-17-year-olds who work at Cookie Cart do more than bake cookies. They also head to class to learn about topics like resumes, finances and customer service. The goal is to help teens gain the kind of employment and interpersonal skills that will help them be successful in the future"
|Children- Last Vestige of Scoundrels|
Interesting Background on this story might include the fact that this "bakery" is really a 501 c 3 and might look at the other donors and connections.
Second standout omission is the source of the funding for Youth Rise Soros's Open Society Foundation's Youth RISE International Network
Or the fact that their "hiring" standards violates equal employment and affirmative action laws. This is their breakdown of hiring for their Minneapolis Location.
|Look at the racist hiring practices|
We won't have to investigate where Soros stands on the next issues and events, it happens to be the same as Obama's and Lauren Radomski's. Illegal Immigration and the abuse of executive powers by the socialist President are covered nicely in Obama's latest political-hack and unconstitutional manuever. Obama Policy to Spare Many Youths From Deportation
Where are the true facts in the debate? Just another puff piece to make it seem the Republicans are bigots and racists for opposing the mandate and the side without a valid argument. The progressives are left without shades of grey and now rely on lies that are exact opposites of the truth. Disinformation, the leftists only truths.
The same boilerplate formula. Emotional appeal and zero facts or real background.
Council Votes Down Permit for Islamic Center in St. Anthony
Another puff piece eager to claim bigotry covered in the following blog:
CAIR & ACLU Manufacture a Controversy
Obama and the Left would't know truth,reality or the Constitution
The leftists cannot dwell in the Constitution, but in the slippery slope of rulings of unqualified progressive justices. Leftists cannot dwell in facts, just implications of class warfare, sexism or racism which make great soundbites for the news. News that is placed/timed/coordinated by the White House with the leftist media.
