President Barack Obama’s Jan. 14 press conference included many attacks and much self-praise and numerous contradictory charges — few of which were recognized or highlighted by the reporters that presented the event in terms vary favorable to the president. Republicans “demonize” him, Obama complained, shortly after he declared that Republicans were putting an economic “gun at the head of the American people … [and] threaten to wreck the entire economy.” “I’m a pretty friendly guy,” he said, not long after suggesting that he would stop checks for veterans and retirees if the GOP didn’t raise the White House’s $16.4 trillion credit limit.
The national center of missing and exploited children should be notified today that Obama is going to exploit children to enhance yet another presidential power grab. He can´t win on the proposal alone so he has to exploit innocent faces to get his way. Sickening.
there´s gazillions of gun laws already on the books in this country,yet criminals are having a field day under Obama and Holder.
At one point in time the press was actually responsible. They certainly can´t call themselves reporters anymore. If they were honest, they could have so much to write about - the list is too long but we all know the topics. What a pouty little wannabe dictator.
Obama threatens to cut the most important, desirable, constitutional parts of government while leaving the wasteful bloated corrupt over regulation untouched. He is no better than any municipal politician who cuts fire and police protection first so as to prevent any cuts to bloated government. What is needed is a GOP with the guts to confront him on this and point out what he does not cut every time he doesn´t pay the military or the SS cheques. This debate can be won but not if you don´t have the debate and leave this demagoguery unchallenged.
No surprise here . . . the liberal media is his, he owns them, pulls their strings and directs their agendas. liberal colleges have produced this large gaggle of "C" average journalist majors for the sole purpose of furthering the leftist cause.
If there is a first principle of conduct, it is this: Consequences Affect Future Behavior.
When journalists sit silently and "do nothing" in the face of repeated incidents of distortion/blatant propaganda, they are actually doing something--not challenging absurdities tends to encourage them over time. Even worse, when influential journalists turn a blind eye to obvious distortion, they enable invalid thoughts to spread far and wide.
History is likely to be very hard on those who have abandoned their journalistic responsibilities.
“Distort the news! Omit the news! Invent the news! Just don’t report the news!”
Above are the shameless marching orders of second-term-emboldened, “flexible” President Barack Hussein Potemkin Obama to his slavishly obedient messengers bearing his lies.
When one fraud, fake, pretender, imposter, hypocrite and phony has his words and deeds reported to his constituency by frauds, fakes, pretenders, imposters, hypocrites and phonies, we’re left with American Journalism circa 2013.
Republicans like the Bushes who "befriended" the Clintons after eight years of criminal and political corruption and the Romneys who made nice, nice to the Obama fraud machine who have encouraged much of the MSM in the destruction of a once great country.
The "kinder gentler, compassionate" Bushes who appoint Souter & Soto-Mayor. Then select and promote Powell. And allow the Plame hoax to play out have ended the GOP. That is until we get tough with Rats and their enenmedia crowd.
Back in the day schools didn´t have cafeterias to serve food. Kids that had to eat at school brought their own lunch. When the government got involved with feeding kids, it was the road to what we have now, a socialist country where the government has now become the Nanny state. Parents have abdicated their responsibility and authority to the government. They started in the schools and thanks to Lyndon Johnson´s Great Society we have the mess we have today. Too bad we have so many citizens demanding these services because they are too comfortable being poor. Trillions spent and all we have for it is a bunch of folks who refuse to work and have no reason to want anything better for themselves. We can´t afford them anymore.
The sloths that populate the WH press room are shameless. Ot one time, a journalist risked being banished from the coveted press room seat, but today a self respecting journalist would be ashamed to belong to that club.
Unfortunately, the Republicans think they can win the game by just putting their defense on the field. They just don´t realize it is the 4th Quarter and the Two Minute Warning just sounded.
They have to start defunding Obama´s machines of tyranny: Sebelius, EPA, Justice, etc.. They are so concerned with being blamed for ...actually, I´m not sure...they don´t seem to be concerned they WILL be blamed for losing our country.
I´m a physician. Today I was "impressed", not deputized, to be one of Obama´s instruments of dictatorial persecution. It has to stop, or we will lose our freedom and liberty because we no longer deserve them.
The points being made here are all thoughtful and very clear. But, look...we passed on the opportunity last November to start fixing the problem. While I never viewed Romney as the grand savior, I did view him as a person who could have started laying the groundwork for the re-birth of America as the constitutional republic it once was. The real leg work was to come from his successors among the republican ranks who would have the where with all to re-engineer the party - people who possess the real messaging skill.
This third-party talk is well and good and I see many points. But, if there are say 20 million of us TP´ers of voting age who would form a third political party, this will not win presidential elections where we are up against 70 million well-programmed sheep. I gaurantee none of the sheep would ever bolt from the dims for a new conservative party.
Earlier this year, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel took over the top jobs at the Department of State and the Department of Defense, respectively. Since then, Kerry has been hyper-active. But whatever happened to Hagel? He has impinged on our consciousness only once, as Kerry’s sidekick during congressional hearings on authorizing an attack on Syria. The impingement was slight. Kerry and Gen. Dempsey did almost all of the talking. Hagel was content with silence except for an occasional misstatement of fact (the Pentagon had to walk back his claim that Russia supplies Syria with chemical weapons). Presumably, Hagel was under orders to
Former Vice President Dick Cheney reluctantly commented today on the rift between his two daughters Liz and Mary Cheney, saying that he was surprised that Mary, who is lesbian, and her wife attacked Liz on Facebook. “We were surprised that there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook, and wished it hadn’t happened,” Cheney said at the National Press Club. “It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that’s our preference.” After Liz Cheney, a candidate for Senate in Wyoming, made comments on Fox News Sunday indicating that she supports a “traditional” definition of marriage, her
DETROIT -- A judge has given Detroit the green light to cut pensions as a way out of the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history, a decision that puts the case in the laps of thousands of retirees who had hoped that the Michigan Constitution would protect them from getting smaller checks in their golden years. Judge Steven Rhodes said the city is eligible to stay in bankruptcy court and scrub $18 billion in debt, about half of that amount linked to underfunded pensions and health care obligations. But he also warned officials that they´ll need to justify any deep
CAIRO — The century-old home of Egypt´s mummies and King Tutankhamun´s treasures is trying to make the best out of the worst times of political turmoil. But the Egyptian Museum is taking a hammering on multiple levels, from riots on its doorstep to funding so meager it can´t keep up paper clip supplies for its staff. The museum, a treasure trove of pharaonic antiquities, has long been one of the centerpieces of tourism to Egypt. But the constant instability since the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak has dried up tourism to the country, slashing a key source of revenue.
This pony is raring to go. Two days before its official unveiling, blurry images of the 2015 Ford Mustang have been leaked on an enthusiast website. A member of the SVTPerformance.com forums has posted several photos of an early copy of the December 9th issue of Autoweek magazine featuring the car in a cover story. You can click here for a link to the website. If authentic, the car in the photos looks very much like many of the speculative renderings that have been circulating in recent weeks, and sports a modern take on the signature Mustang fastback design.
Frank DiPascali, a 33-year employee of the firm that ran the largest Ponzi scheme in recent history, took to the stand to testify against his former colleagues. Frank DiPascali, the Bernie Madoff henchman who won the role as the star witness in the biggest fraud case in American history, torched five of his former colleagues with his testimony Monday in federal court. Perhaps more important, DiPascali is the first witness to demolish the myth that Bernard Madoff ever had a legitimate investment advisory business. The star witness also pulverized Madoff’s assertion that he had acted alone in constructing the biggest
Chris Davis´ miraculous game-winning 100-yard field goal return for a touchdown will go down as the greatest finish in Iron Bowl history. It´s the type of finish that a fan wants to remember forever, if it means taking a commemorative photo, storming the field, or even scattering the ashes of a loved one following the game. In Alabama, college football is life and death, and following the Tigers´ incredible 34-28 win over the Crimson Tide on Saturday, one fan scattered the cremated remains of a loved one on the turf at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
