Ohio founded As the Iron Valley press. 1872, the daily times 1903 the daily reporter. 1903 Melissa Griffy Seeton editor guest opinion monsters and the Middle East its an old Story but All hell is breaking Loose in the Middle East. Nowhere is that More so than in Syria where . Intelligence suggests that an increasingly desperate Bashal Al Assad is preparing to turn chemical weapons on his own people whom he a already butchered by the tens of thousands in an ongoing civil w a invited by his repressive governments own brutality. Specifically the syrian military is said to be mixing the components necessary for Sarin a deadly nerve Gas. The terrorist group Hezbollah financed largely by Iran and Allied with the syrian government is said to have set up training Camps near chemical weapons depots. There have been reports of the syrian military firing on civilians fleeing to Jordan. That is apparently in response to rebel Progress on the syrian capital of Damascus where they re trying to take the Airport. As a result american leaders Are speaking aloud about More overt intervention in Syria with president Barack Obama saying the threat of chemical warfare might compel him to a change my calculus toward the conflict with some members of Congress also beginning to suggest the . Rattle some cages there and secretary7 of state Hillary Clinton noting that the a future. Cannot possibly include the european Union already has formally backed the rebel Effort. Even Russia whose Wimmil look the other Way at the War crimes occurring there have arguably enabled them is starting to change its tune Tow Ard Assad. Reportedly several nations have offered Assad Asylum. If he a not utterly mad he should take them up on it while he still can. This is not going to end Well for him. The Obama White House sometimes gets grief for leading on these matters from behind at least publicly but americans arguably should be More alarmed by an administration eager to commit More . Troops to a faraway conflict after More than a decade of War. The Pentagon has informed the president that it could take upwards of75,000 soldiers to seize syrians chemical weapons stockpile. Beyond that a big part of the risk is not exactly knowing whom we May be crawling into bed with by supporting these rebels. See Libya. See Egypt. Indeed egyptians and Many in the . Government were not sorry to see Hosni Mubarak go but look at who a replaced him. Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is reportedly preparing to inflict martial Law on his nation of 82 million people. Meanwhile Khaled Meshaw Hamas Leader in Gaza used the 25th anniversary of his organizations founding on saturday to say palestinians should not rest until Israel no longer exists a no Compromise on any Inch of and Iran continues to pursue nuclear weapons which if successful will almost certainly spark an arms race in the Middle East with no shortage of tyrants intent on exporting those to terrorists. These Are turbulent times and these Are not easy Calls. Journal Star of Peoria. Ill 30 seconds w a a a a Kcuik to fac Spartanburg Herald journal Robert Ariail a Cliffy hysteria is turning government into to show As yet another make believe Washington a a crisis looms its tempting to suspect that the most fraught interludes in american politics derive from turning government into a to show. Artificial deadlines imaginary Cliffs villains and heroes a a state of permanent emergency. These Well worn dramatic devices have been the stuff of serial melodrama from a the perils of Pauline through �?o24.�?� no sooner was the 2012 presidential election blessedly ended than journalists started handicapping the 2016 presidential election. Next a new crisis was declared. Org the fiscal Cliff org without a conflict see there a no Story. Must we therefore govern the country according to the narrative conventions of spy thrillers to boost Cable news network ratings and to ensure pundits and politicians plenty of to face time apparently so. However is it really Good for our democracy that Many otherwise Normal americans recognize figures like rep. Eric Cantor r-va., or sen. Claire Mccaskill d-mo., on sight to put it another Way if i weren to a subscriber to the Aba league pass would i too stand in danger of turning into a a fiscal Cliffy Junkie Between now and Jan. 2, feverishly flipping from Man by to Fox seeking fresh excitement and outrage in his 1997 Book a breaking the news How the Media undermine american democracy a James Fallows explained a lot about what drives such coverage. A Why do journalists want to appear on towhee so Many reporters make fun of the shows a he asked. A the most immediate payoff is the simple thrill of being noticed and known. Political journalistic Washington functions much like a big High school with cliques of the popular kids the Gene Lyons eugenelyons2 nerds the rebels the left outs and so on. To Abe on to is to become very quickly a Cool kid. Friends Call to say they be seen you. People recognize you in stores. Whether people agree or disagree with what you said or whether they even remember they treat you As a realer and bigger than you were and that was Back when 24/7 Cable to political programming barely existed. Since then print reporters have quit dismissing to. Most were Only pretending to be snobs about it anyway now they Ponder How to become the next Ezra Klein. The rewards Fallows made Clear can be Heady. Celebrity journalists a have that extra sizzling experience of seeing strangers Heads flip Back for a second look a is it really him a As they walk into restaurants or through Airport corridors. T he recognition is almost entirely judgment free. Tvs effect is mainly to make you bigger than life. For each Hundred acquaintances who will say a i saw you on the show a Only one will say a i agree or disagree with what you a and Why is the pundit walking through airports most Likely he or she is on the Way to collect hefty speaking fees in the american Outback or to sign books Likely never to have been written or published but for the authors to appearances. You started out covering municipal sewer and water commission meetings and now you re a Star having done just enough of this kind of thing to understand How it works id add a secondary but very real danger. Going on to can very time consuming and Energy absorbing. Between the time spent in Limos and makeup rooms not to mention dealing with the secondary effects of newfound celebrity there a not much time left to do your real work. So pundits Start coasting gradually drawing Down their Stock of genuine expertise a such As it is. Next comes faking. On camera some talking head asks the journalist to opine about a topic that strictly speaking he knows Bugger All about. Instead of saying so our hero cleverly paraphrases something he heard some other savant say on a different Channel. Remember during the Campaign when Mitt Romney made a fool of himself explaining How Syria was Iran a route to the sea Iran has its own seacoast and no Border with Syria i bet head heard that from some other big Bluffer pretending to be worldly Wise on Cable to. Almost needless to say if the potentially corrupting effects of to celebrity can be bad for journalists they re even worse for politicians. Under the Best of circumstances there a hardly enough available attention and acclaim from sea to shining sea to satisfy the average United states congressman. Add the ego inflating thrill of being on a first name basis with Bill of Reilly or Erin Burnett and what dramatic poses a previously obscure pol from Utah or South Carolina strike to get on to so heighten the contradictions. Ramp up the conflict. The fiscal Cliff org its not a budget debate its Good is. Evil civilization hangs in the balance except no it does no to. Its a budget fight that president Obama wins. He a holding All the High cards republicans Are playing a weak hand badly and people Are getting really fed up with the fake hysteria. Arkansas times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine award Winner and coauthor of a the Hunting of the president Quot St. Martin s press. 2000. You can email Lyons at Not one More Penny to support a new High school for Dover readers viewpoint beware of president Obama and his hidden socialistic Agenda As someone who pays nearly $15,000 a year in property taxes to Dover schools i will never vote for a new High school. I done to care if the Walls Are falling in and the air is Musty. Not one More Penny. Polities is the general Art of getting votes from the poor and Campaign funds from the Rich by promising to protect each from the other. Now that unemployment is beam 8 percent we no longer have to have extended unemployment benefits we we rent supposed to make unemployment a permanent thing while shopping at Goodwill recently in new Philadelphia a gentleman went around and handed about 15 Christmas cards out and said a merry Christmas when he left the More and everyone opened their cards there were $50 Bills in them. I would like to wish that gentleman a very merry Christmas and Happy new year and know that god is watching Over him. How does an inmate in prison Gam 200 pounds while awaiting execution on death Row what Are they feeding these people do they have a Buffet in prison r i if you Are in a Union just remember your Union is Only As Good As the people you pick to represent you so choose wisely. You have a contract for a reason and if your employer can get around it do it 1 cannot help but to laugh at the irony of Obama warning the republicans a no More the master of game playing telling republicans a no More games is so funny. Just because it Bama won does t mean that nobody else has any say in the Republican party. 1 like the Way Gene Lyons make up his own facts in the Benghazi cover up Story. 1 am so proud of Central Catholic for following the morals and values that a Catholic school should have instead of overlooking things because of winning seasons. 14m an opinion an answering Machina is on duty 24 hours a Day. Call 330 364-1939 or Amat caters should speak clearly and slowly after the beep personal attacks obscenities. Meter ant or biased messages a not acceptable. Heaven help us All. Obama has a hidden secret socialistic Agenda. Like a thief in the night socialism will creep into our midst. It will penetrate the very essence of our being. Please of please a say it ainu to so Joe a Well i am sorry to inform you Joe but sad amp this is True. It has to be factual considering the source. Rush and those crusty Good of boys Over at a Flo one University say it is. A socialist takeover does t just occur Over night. It is furtive slowly stealing into the fabric of a nation Inch by painstaking Inch. So. The Way i got it figured in 20,30 or perhaps 50 years barring there no truth to the mayan Calendar we should he a country of Little commies Correct however what 1 do find particularly disconcerting is the toxic ideology lunacy. This a prove that Point bring that a Otry. That perpetrates such lunacy ideology however proves a print racism and hatred Are alive and Well and thriving in the dark recesses of the far Radical right. It is absolutely imperative to the survival of our conservative party that they alienate themselves from these Radical cements. If they do not purge themselves of this Neo nazi blight and won i fear we will awaken some Gray overcast morning to find the elephant has died. 1 will admit that i feel Barack Obama is an ineffective impotent Leader. It would t have bothered me a bit to have seen him voted out of office. But is he a socialist no. Will he turn us All into muslims no Way. Do 1 believe that Obama was born in Kenya this is a very Good possibility. After All i feel his opponent in the recent election May have been born on another planet. Dave Farrow new Philadelphia
