    I watching the Matt Damon anti fracking movie “Promised Land” last night. If you weren’t paying attention, you would have missed the credit about where the key funding came from…..

    Gee, a self righteous liberal save da earf anti fracking movie financed by a medieval Muslim oil theocracy? Where are my smelling salts.

    I’m glad to see Atkisson include Rush Limbaugh for honorable mention. He has been incredibly slow to figure out how mass immigration and amnesty destroy America.

    Attkisson’s book “Stonewalled” is a real grabber — it relates the corruption in CBS News, and how the corrupt news agency (where Attkisson worked) kowtowed to Obama operatives. Worth a read.

    The very first time I heard the term astroturf in a political context was from Nancy Pelosi who was clearly projecting her tactics and motivation onto ours.
    The next time I heard it was in the robocall vote suppression cries of the Liberals in 2012.
