June 6—The Washington Post, the New York Times and the Capitol Hill leak-sheet Politico all used the occasion of the 19th annual "Showcase for Commerce" in Johnstown, Pa. as the occasion to escalate their slander campaign against leading House Democrat, and longtime New Deal advocate, Rep. John Murtha (Pa.). While the mainstream media paid no attention for 18 years to the annual Johnstown industrial exposition, which highlights defense, machine-tool, and biotech companies that have led a remarkable industrial recovery in the central Pennsylvania district, following the collapse of the steel and coal industries in the 1970s and '80s, this year's event saw Washington Post and other reporters literally stalking Representative Murtha, as he toured the hundreds of expo booths on the floor of the Johnstown hockey stadium. And not one word of Murtha's stunning call for a Federal government-led industrial revival, in the spirit of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, made it onto the pages of the Washington Post.Instead, the Post and the other newspapers spewed out a tirade of unfounded charges of kickbacks and corruption, almost all based on the work of a George Soros front group that was created specifically to target FDR advocates on Capitol Hill, and make Congress safe for proponents of dope legalization, offshore unregulated speculation, and euthanasia—all favorite Soros policies.
As far as I know, there was no major concern over Congressman Murtha's health, until his surgery. His passing bodes ill for America and the world.
