Page Nine - The Uninvited Ombudsman Report

Alan Korwin is the author of “Gun Laws of America”, “Supreme Court Gun Cases” and several state gun owner’s guide’s. He and his wife run the Bloomfield Press. He is recognized on a national level as an expert on firearms related issues. His combination of brains and wit make him a fun and educational read.

Alan has started publishing “Page Nine” the Uninvited Ombudsman Report. For those who have ever been upset at the “mainstream media’s” reporting, you are sure to find this a good read. Having attended the NRA’s annual meetings, and watched the press’ incompetent “reporting” of the event, I can verify that Alan’s report is accurate. ------ Jim Irvine

The Uninvited Ombudsman Report
by Alan Korwin
The lamestream media told you:

    The controversial National Rifle Association held its annual meeting in Milwaukee this weekend, in a state that, despite the powerful gun lobby's best efforts, defeated an attempt to allow its citizens to secretly carry fully loaded semiautomatic handguns virtually anywhere they go.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Tens of thousands of Americans from all walks of life met with the world's leading gun makers this weekend, to examine new firearms that are more dependable, more accurate, with better safety features and better sights than ever before. In a trend that appears to be continuing, guns have gotten both bigger, smaller, heavier, lighter and more tricked out, using advanced space-age materials and new engineering methods. Industry growth and the show's attendance have set records, according to experts at the 135th annual NRA meeting in Milwaukee.
Reporters, when asked why the massive new product announcements received no news coverage, uniformly claimed it would constitute promotion and be against editorial guidelines. When asked how they justify such coverage for car, food, fashion, book, golf, travel, electronics, swimwear, TV, satellite radio and dog shows, they remembered they were on deadline and had to leave.
Wisconsin's repeated efforts to allow its women (and men) to discreetly arm themselves for personal safety, joining 47 other states that allow it, were frustrated again by the governor's veto, who is now the focus of a Dump Doyle campaign. The veto override, after non-stop brute-force arm twisting by Doyle, was lost by two votes.

The lamestream media told you:

    Brazil was poised to overwhelmingly ban the private possession of firearms by its citizens, in a country awash in violent crime. After the vote they told you: In an unexpected stunning upset, Brazilians soundly defeated an international effort to take away their personal firearms in the face of armed gangsters running rampant. Only 35% of voters supported the move to disarm the innocent in South America's largest country.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Col. Jairo Paes deLira, the heroic former Brazilian police chief who had 10,000 officers under his command, traveled 17 hours to reach the NRA convention and tell attendees what actually occurred in his country. Col. deLira headed the "Campaign of NO" that defeated the proposed gun ban.
The United Nations, non-government organizations from around the world, and groups like the Ford Foundation mounted a highly funded propaganda effort to push the citizen-defenselessness package into law. Beginning "without ten cents," DeLira and interest groups used the Internet, word of mouth, and community newspapers to rally popular support for the safety of the public. Hunters, target shooters and self defense advocates put differences aside to work together to preserve their rights.
In an interview with The Uninvited Ombudsman, DeLira said it would be, "political suicide in the near term," for politicians to attempt such a ban again, but notes that officials retain, "enormous power by decree," over such things as the amount of ammunition that can be purchased or stored by Brazil's citizens.
The lamestream media told you:

    President Bush has fallen to new lows, in political polls taken of people whose primary source of news is the "news" media.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
If you were told, on Sep. 12, 2001, that four-and-a-half years later, the Taliban would be overthrown and removed from Afghanistan, most of al Qaida would be rounded up and killed, Saddam Hussein would be deposed, Iraq would have held three free elections, written a Constitution and formed a government, women in Kuwait would have the vote, Syria would be tossed out of Lebanon after decades of abusive occupation, free elections would be held in Egypt, Libya would renounce the jihad, its efforts to obtain WMDs and be working its way back into the international community, no new jihadi attacks would occur on American soil, joblessness in America would be at new lows and the economy would be stronger that at any time in our history, you wouldn't have believed it.
Credit for much of this rests on the shoulders of the President, who has unflinchingly pursued an agenda he believes in, and who is ceaselessly ridiculed and demeaned by the lamestream media, which also reports the poll results. Thanks to Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman, who made these observations at the NRA convention in Milwaukee. His remarks were unreported by the "news" media.

The lamestream media told you:

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana -- Five people were killed when a man walked into a church and opened fire with a handgun.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
A story in your local paper, about a psychopath a thousand miles away, is sensationalism, not news. Such stories are typically propagated by the Associated Press, and dutifully repeated locally with no critical review or input from local reporters. Since these almost always involve a firearm, critics claim it represents an anti-gun-rights agenda disguised as news. When compared with other wrongful or horrific deaths occurring close to home but which go unreported, the likelihood that it is a hoplophobic (gun fearing) agenda-driven story increase, industry observers say.
The Associated Press reported, several years in a row, that "medical misadventures," a tasteful term for patients killed by doctor mistakes, cause 100,000 unnecessary deaths a year, or 274 every day. Even if this number is ten times too large, as some experts insist (AP has not issued a correction), it still represents about 27 people unjustly killed by doctors on a daily basis. This is more than five times greater than the reported Baton Rouge deaths, occurs every single day not just once, is at least as tragic, and much of it occurs right near you, in hospitals and offices you may have been in recently -- significantly increasing the relevance to local news consumers. Still, the "news" media uniformly choose to report the one rare incident, on the other side of the country, often for several days in a row, leaving a not-so-subtle perception that the medical profession is not an issue and guns are bad.

The lamestream media told you:

    United Nations officials were deeply concerned about Iran's reluctance to cooperate with international nuclear regulatory inspectors, though the U.N. was unwilling at this point to endorse sanctions against the nation. Meanwhile, the United States is considering economic pressure toward Iran to promote nonproliferation talks which have stalled. Iran, with little natural resources in uranium but enormous reserves of oil, emphatically denies its nuclear program has any goals except peaceful production of energy. Iran's president, who has called for the extermination of Israel, was greeted by massive outpourings of jubilant Muslim supporters on a recent trip to largely Muslim Indonesia.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
According to leading experts speaking on condition of anonymity, Iran is rapidly developing nuclear weapons. They are probably pretty close to results. Although classified by the U.S. State Dept. as a nation that supports terrorism, Iran is actually a promoter of jihad, or global holy war against non-Muslim infidels. As a sovereign nation it is well within its power and interests to pursue these policies and develop the bomb, which is why it is proceeding, according to unnamed authorities. For nations that have already produced the bomb, to object to another nation producing it, is the height of hypocrisy, but a necessary and routine element of diplomacy that precedes use of force and other sanctions. If military force isn't brought to bear, the jihadis will have their nukes soon, experts believe.
Reuters and the BBC have adopted a policy to only use the word "terrorist" in quotes.
