Today Congress votes on universal healthcare bill, which has a $250,000 fine and 5 years prison for everyone who fails to buy a $15,000 medical insurance policy, and pay a 2.5% income tax increase.

WHITE HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE

6 November 2009

eries_v.html


Tommy Christopher: Robert, I have one question and one clarification. First, the new TV series on ABC, “V,” a lot of people are talking about how this show draws very strong –

MR. GIBBS: I got to tell you — I’m going to start with this: I don’t want to give anybody the impression I have time to watch anything other than what most of you all do each night. So I can’t even tell you what that is or what it’s about. If that makes me fairly un-cool, I tend to watch more “SpongeBob” than “V.”

Tommy Christopher:There have been a lot of news stories about this –

MR. GIBBS: Makes me a hit with one six-year-old, and that really is all that counts.

Tommy Christopher: You haven’t seen the news stories about how this show compares your administration to the alien invaders? (Laughter.)
Seriously, really, you haven’t heard about it?

Q He couldn’t admit it if he had. (Laughter.)

MR. GIBBS: Because there’s a chip in the back of my head that requires me — (laughter) — I don’t mean to — I honestly — I got to tell you, I spend — I watch a little football on Saturday, a little football on Sunday, and a lot of news every other time.

Q Get a life. (Laughter.)

Q (Inaudible).

MR. GIBBS: Pardon me?

Tommy Christopher: Fourteen million people watch it, and the show –

MR. GIBBS: And clearly, me not being one of them. Again, I –

[Cross-talk.] (Laughter.)

MR. GIBBS: Hold on. I’m not entirely sure who I’d check on since I don’t watch the show.

Tommy Christopher:Well, check with the President, see if he has a reaction –

MR. GIBBS: I will assume that the President watches –

Tommy Christopher:– comparing him to a space alien.

MR. GIBBS: What’s the — which would probably, like, be one of the least worst things he’s been called today.



Tommy Christopher:One clarification from yesterday on the meeting with Clemente, it sounded to me like you were saying that Clemente requested the meeting. Can you –

MR. GIBBS: We both wanted to get together.

April.

Is “V” on — what network?

Jake Tapper: ABC.

MR. GIBBS: Okay. Can I get a little briefing after this from the –

Jake Tapper: We’ll send you a tape before the end of the day.

MR. GIBBS: Excellent.

Tommy Christopher: It’s serious.



Update: From Jake Tapper (via email): “I’ll be delivering Gibbs a copy of the first episode of V on Monday.”

V2 no longer dresses aliens in Nazi uniforms of red and black, though does use the original Nazi logo.



Seems Obama has a monopoly on red and black uniforms for his Youth Corps.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I just love how you posted a Worth1000.com image as though it were a 'source.' I'm sure whoever made it would be very proud. Though they might tell you to take off the address of a famous photo editing contest website if you actually wanted to pull one over on anyone.

Maybe some comments from Morena Baccarin and Scott Peters might shed some light on the subject. This source material may not hold the same weight and respectability as photoshopped images, but it might be interesting to hear from the star of the show and the guy who developed and wrote this remake of "V":

'V' Star Morena Baccarin Is No Cold-Blooded Alien by Jenna Busch

http://www.popeater.com/2009/11/05/v-star-morena-baccarin-alien/

Excerpt:

JB: I don't know if you've been on the web this morning, but there are a bunch of stories about V paralleling the Obama campaign...the show talks about hope and change and universal health care, and it premiered on November 2nd. What do you think about all that?

Morena Baccarin: "I don't know. I think it's great that people are talking about it. But I think people have opinions about everything, and we have this compulsion, I think, in our culture, to put everything in a box and say that's what it is, because then we can understand it. And it certainly does echo that a little bit. It echos the Obama campaign. But I think that would be so rude to say that Obama is an alien or is Anna. [laughs] I mean, the man is the President of our country. I think that there's a sense of irony in our show...a realistic irony, that it takes aliens to give us health care. It is so difficult to get anything passed. To get this whole health care thing figured out. I think it's kind of funny and it speaks of our culture, and the fact that we are looking for somebody to rescue us, and pull us out of this hole we got ourselves into. And it might as well be an alien. [laughs]"

Exclusive: Behind the ‘V’ Controversy by Jeffrey Jena

http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/jjena/2009/11/05/exclusive-behind-th
e-v-controversy
/

Excerpt:

"The script was not written as a roman a clef or allegory for the Obama administration. The script was written by Mr. Peters during the Bush administration and started before Mr. Obama clinched the nomination. The author, Mr. Peters, is not some evil sleeper right-winger/Obama hater. Mr. Peters, besides being a talented writer and director is a gay man, legally married in California, very liberal politically and a dedicated supporter of the President’s campaign. If he’s a mole for some right-wing conspiracy he may be the most committed spy ever. Mr. Peters, who was born in Canada, recently became an American citizen; a process he tried to expedite so he could vote for Mr. Obama, a deadline he missed by two days."

"Unfortunately for Mr. Peters, this isn’t the first time in his career that fans or critics saw things in his work he didn’t intend. Some fans of “The 4400” saw hidden meaning in those episodes too. At first, Mr. Peters would try to respond, but eventually he had to quit paying attention as the theories got more and more bizarre."

Of course they have to say that. Because they have chips in their brains. Rule #1 in sales -- lie.

Congress is "debating" Obama's mandatory Healthcare Tax Bill today, which includes mandatory Death Panels, poisoned "vaccines", and organ harvesting from living sheeple against their will and without their consent by killing them. Because 55-million aborticides are not killing USA fast enough. So there are direct similarities to V's genocide and cannibalism via "universal healthcare". Just an accident, of course.

Quote:

The series pickup was announced in May 2009, to be executive produced by Scott Peters, Jace Hall, Steve Pearlman, and Jeffrey Bell.[6] In September 2009 it was announced that four episodes of V would air in November 2009, and that the series would resume in March 2010 after the 2010 Winter Olympics to complete its 13-episode season.[9] ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson said, "We always intended to break the show up into 'pods' to make it more of an event."[9] As production of the fourth episode of V wrapped, it was announced on November 3, 2009 that Scott Rosenbaum had been named executive producer and showrunner of the series, with Peters and Hall remaining as executive producers.[4] Production on the remaining nine episodes will resume in January 2010. As the original miniseries was inspired by the novel It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis and has been called "a modern retelling of how the Nazis rose to power in Germany,"[3] the re-imagined series has been accused of being an allegory of the presidency of Barack Obama.[16][17][18] In his review of the show, Troy Patterson of Slate points out that bloggers and journalists had noticed parallels between the show's premise and the Barack Obama administration[4]. Chicago Tribune reviewer (and noted libertarian[19]) Glenn Garvin called the show, "controversial" but took a more down-the-middle approach, saying the series was "a barbed commentary on Obamania that will infuriate the president's supporters and delight his detractors."[18]

Note the lizard promoted suddenly to sole "executive producer showrunner", with 2 producers demoted and two fired, the week the pilot was broadcast. Why would you punish the producers for a new show getting high ratings? Read between the lies.

Sort a like when Fox killed Firefly before its first epp.

Every news "reporter" knows The Rules, or will soon find a new career. Same holds true for script writers.

No Bailout for Hollywood, unless the lizards are happy.

As much as it pains me to say so, it looks like Pirate may be on to something here. I'm on my iPad, so I haven't got the whole linking thing down here, but if you go to youtube, and search "jace hall season 4 trailer" you'll find Jace's show trailer where at the beginning of the video, Jace reciees a call from none other than Obama, concerned about "V".

Check it out for yourselves. And I'm inclined to believe it was NOT a publicity stunt, as I've known Jace for 20 years. Interestung stuff.
