Wave goodbye to
the Obama media

Daily Caller, by Tucker Carlson & Neil Patel

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/5/2012 5:40:11 AM

By tomorrow night we’ll likely know the name of the next president. But we already know the loser in this election cycle: political reporters. They’ve disgraced themselves. Conservatives have long complained about liberal bias in the media, and with some justification. But it has finally reached the tipping point. Not in our lifetimes have so many in the press dropped the pretense of objectivity in order to help a political candidate. The media are rooting for Barack Obama. They’re not hiding it. Consider Benghazi. An American consulate is destroyed and a US ambassador murdered at a time when the president

Haven't watched the alphabet news since they tried to stonewall the Lewinsky scandal by discrediting Drudge and haven't subscribed to a newspaper in decades. Haven't missed them and won't miss them. May their revenues fade away to nothing!

This column in the Daily Caller speaks for most thinking Americans. The corrupt-leftist-media is beyond contempt. They make a mockery out of "freedom of the press" by propping up with their lies, the most anti-American "president" in the history of this Country. Sickening.

There are a handful of good old fashioned news professionals in the otherwise corrupt news media like Jake Tapper and Sheryl Attkisson. I just don't understand how/why they remain there among all those Brian Williams' and George Streptococci.

I have said all along that the stimulus money paid off the media. They have very few viewers and very few subscriptions to the newspaper. How are they staying afloat otherwise? Obama gave them stimulus money. Thus, Obama news all the time. They are so corrupt, all of them. I never watch the networks for anything. We don't take the newspaper. However, I am very informed. I get my news from the Internet. I know I am not alone in this. Obama is a liar and a thief.

Due to the coming election, I watched the Sunday news programs on the alphabet networks. Typical panels were 4 or 5 to 1 in favor of liberals. Plus, they asked the liberals each to speak first and then gave the token conservative a few moments to counter. The libs were all in happy, smug agreement that Obama and all the Democrat senate candidates were shoe-ins to win.

I can't help but wonder what the late Tim Russert would have thought of all this. He was a good newsman, and an honorable liberal. Sharyl Atkinson and Jake Tapper are sadly, the exception. Reporters who try to find out the truth.

I have trouble believing as so many are saying that this election is close but even if it is a landslide for Romney it is still downright scary that Obama will get even 40% of the vote. There are legions of citizens who don't know anything about what is going on and will believe the outright lies Obama and his media hacks tell. The corrupt propagandistic media has succeeded in making a pack of lies believed. They may have a setback but they will keep trying.

The corrupt media will still be there on November 7. They will either be propping up the obama regime or trying to destroy the incoming Romney. And NOTHING will have changed in that arena. It is not as though the media serve the people or truth and they are really never held accountable.

ABC, NBC, CBS, have no place in my home and haven't in three years. No newspaper darkens my door. I search for my news on the Internet. I can find the truth there with little effort. FOX NEws is the only channel I watch on TV. Now somehow we need to find a way to enable those who are not able to afford additional channels to be able to have Fox News in their homes . Part of the reason we are in this situation is a huge number of Americans only news source is the MSM. They have had no balance to help them make wise decisions. Goodbye with no regrets!

Unfortunately, the corrupt media are like viruses. You can never really get rid if them. They just keep hanging on even though you try to starve them out of existence by dropping your subscription or never watching their channel. Somehow they eke out an existence and then go into full eruption when a Republican gets elected.

I guarantee that once President Romney is in office, their curiosity and their investigative interest will once again be rediscovered.

# 2 - I wouldn't hold my breathe on that. As far as settling scores goes - I'm just afraid that if the powers that be FINALLY go after Obama over Benghazi - that the new president will pardon his actions.

Don't worry. Of course I'm voting for him - Romney that is. But I'm bracing for a white wash assisted by Romney of the Obama years. In the name of "let's move on" of course.

IMO. the left media have destroyed themselves on the altar of socialism and elite-ism. Who reads that junk anymore? The hardcore ex-hippie Maoist? A minority to be respected for its tenacity. But, like once dangerous Spartans in the Roman era, they are really not taken seriously anymore. We watch people like bob Beckle and Juan Willams make complete fools of themselves every week trying to justify the implausible positions of their lords like the hollow shirt Øbama. No normal thinking individual could possibly swallow their arguments as plausible or logical in any sense. Yet, the media keep right on selling those invisible beans.

The framers of the Constitution specifically mentioned freedom of the press because it never occurred to them that the press would become a propaganda arm of the government; such a condition was simply outside their collective experience. They believed a free press would act as a watchdog and bark at laws and actions that violated the Constitution.

The watchdog is now a lapdog and a rabid one at that, snarling and foaming at the mouth at anyone who questions the imposition of undiluted socialism.

The mainstream media have become largely irrelevant and if Romney wins they will be toast. Not because Romney will punish them (he won't), but because they will be left with the realization that they couldn't pull it off.

One would think anyone considering themselves a journalist or TV news reader might have a bit of intelligence or exhibit a bit of common sense, but this is not the case. The media IMO has always been center left, but during the Clinton years is when the extreme activity started and the bias has been progressively worse since then. There seems to be no embarrassment for their actions.
Reporting of news is no longer the standard; everything is Opinion. Thanks to the internet one can piece together a picture of what is news-worthy.

#s 2 and 17...I have no doubt that a Romney administration, as did the Bush administration in their time, would not want their four years tainted with the detritus from the previous crapweasel's time in office. It is an almost unwritten rule and Mitt Romney would not seek retribution...it is undignified and unpresidential. Regardless of how the Obama-ites behaved.

I am sorry, because I want to see Bronco Bama perp walked to jail like so many other Chicago politicians as they finished their time in office.

Does anyone know offhand how many previous Illinois governors are in jail right now? It's two or three and known as the Chicago way.

Unfortunately I agree with #7. If Obama wins the LSM will preposterously re-write history to claim that the poor fool has an overwhelming "mandate". All those that point out that Obama is easily the worst president in American history will be called racists. Vocal protesters opposed to Obama stealing the election will be arrested with mindless cheer leading from the LSM. I'm not being pessimistic. If Romney wins the same professional victims will be apoplectic and angrily denounce America as racist and the election invalid because only racists and haters would vote for a smart, successful white guy. Either way these tools may have to retire the word racist from the dictionary.

I know plenty of older people in rural NH who can't get cable, can't afford satellite, and therefore only get PBS and ABC. The internet is foreign to them. If they had access to Fox the number of informed voters would skyrocket as they are good people, but live in the past.

I think this all started, or at least got much worse, with Bush-Gore in 2000. The liberal left was outraged that Bush won. They spent the next 8 years, even in a time of national concern over our own safety, trying to ruin the President. They didn't even try to show impartiality any longer, as they live in the bubble of peers who think like they do. Obama has been used much like he used others in the past. They pushed him and his idiotic policies down our throat. They covered for him at every turn. They continue to lie for him.

I can only hope others are wrong about Romney. I think he has a love for our country
that will not allow him to play politics with Bengazi. I am praying non-stop for him and our country.

Not that it will change their approach, but one can always speak truth kindly and hope it penetrates. Our editor is a decent newsman but the publisher is a flaming liberal.

This election isn't even close if not for the Kneepad Media. And don't think for a second we will not have the Kneepad Media once this election is over. Come Jan 21, the day after President is inaugurated, expect stories about eh increase in the homeless, pictures of flag draped coffins with US service personnel from Afghanistan and global warming hysteria to be all over the Alphabets and print media. They will do the same things they always do when a Rebublican is elected. Pavlov’s dog was less predictable then these clowns.

The media will quickly rediscover their "bite" in a Romney administration. My hope is that President Romney will have a Press Secretary who will be of good cheer, be a great communicator, and will not be steamrolled by the media. He needs a Tony Snow because that position is going to be a very important one. The media will turn into snarky pit bulls come November 7th and will try and define a Romney presidency. Unlike Obama's perpetual honeymoon there will be no honeymoon this time around for President Romney. Please choose wisely.

The Alp[habet MSM that broadcasts on the PUBLIC AIRWAVES must have their licenses revoked for obvious bias and politics vs. unbiased reporting. Their licenses should be put up for auction to the highest bidder and the current holders are barred from bidding!

That will put things right. As for the cable MSM, they can be dealt with by letting advertisers know that no one will buy their products!

Now on to more important matters!

All Marxist run Universities should be barred from any grants or other govt. money programs, DONE!

All Unions must be outlawed, union leadership should be arrested and held for trial on charges of Treason, theft of union funds and practicing politics.

All 501c corporations and others with 'tax exempt status' should be forced to pay taxes IF they have been a political arm of the Dimocrap party.

All foreign donations and foreigners who have corrupted out political process (Soros for instance) should be arrested no matter where they are and held for trial for Treason and conspiracy to undermine our govt.

I could go on but you get the picture!

If there is one thing I’ve learned since the Clintonista years is that some people will believe what they want to believe, and the truth be damned. Therefore lamers like Chris Matthews still provide a service by validating the hardcore useful idiots’ agenda. In a way this is good because Rush said he will continue until everyone agrees with him; we will have Rush for a very long time.

Being both a cynic and a pessimist, I cannot bring myself to share Carlson and Patel's confidence that the fading Legacy Media is close to fading completely out. Yes, we have known for most of our lives that they are water carriers for the Left, and we can observe that their bias is by now startlingly obvious. The alternative media is inexorably taking the place of the propaganda organs of the Left, but the Fourth Estate's colony of intellectual cockroaches, eschewing the light, will scamper around for a while longer until they're stepped on and squashed. They are diminished and obsolescent, but not obsolete. Yet.

A word of caution to those who share Hannity's view that the press died in 2008: in March 1919, the noted journalist Lincoln Steffens accompanied State Department official William Bullit (the future U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union) on a trip to revolutionary Russia. Later on, Steffens proclaimed triumphantly: "I've seen the future, and it works." But according to Bullit, Steffens came up with this phrase on the way to Russia, not after he had seen the future. 1919 seems a lot earlier than 2008, doesn't it?

Twenty four hours after Romney’s inauguration in January all these sleaze balls will wake up and scream that Romney is the worst President in history because he hasn’t fixed the economy, unemployment, the war in Afghanistan and whatever else they can think of.

You'd think that with shrinking audiences and subscriptions the owners of old media would seek a format change to fit the market and increase their profitability. Trouble is, they know nothing of the free market and, in fact, are out to destroy it. We'll just have to wait until the old media goes up for a fire sale and conservatives buy them out.

Tucker and Patel, are too kindly, call them timid, as they refer to destructive TV & press people as "liberal"? (a word that means freedom). TV/press are, in fact, anti-liberal, big State, endless tax & spend. Mildly call them socialists, OR economic fascists, government colluding privilege with big corporations: like Mussolini's Italy, Hitler's Germany. Or, go full bore, call them Communists Stalin's Soviet terrorizing slavery. Nah, too scared to call them commies. Just stop calling them
"liberal"! They can call ALL of it, "the line", or “the complex". The amazing Andrew Breitbart called it "The Complex", in his bestseller, "RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION". Andrew busted the press, calling their rules of behavior, “The Complex”. He was getting close to "cultural Marxism" before he died. In fact, for many years, this rigid press and Hollywood uniformity was called, "The Party Line", named after the American Communist Party" and its bosses who decided from month to month, exactly what the "The Communist Party Line” was. What you said and wrote, was all at risk of being brutally punished by The Party Bosses, and ALL your fellow commie pals. New Media has countered "The Line", exposing truth, the lying pattern of censoring. New Media is exposing the Old Media cover-up of Benghazi, birth certificate, czars, on and on. Old Media chastized for their Party Line. Their Protection Racket of Beltway crimes.

As long as the LSM is headquartered in New York City and DC there will be no change. They sit in their high rise ivory towers and look down on the rest of the country with contempt and disdain. If they would come down off their high-horse every once in a while they would see the rest of the country has indoor plumbing and electricity too. Some of us actually have college degrees and can use a computer.

Remember when Romney was at the correspondents dinner party in Washington, D.C. last month. He made a "joke" of the so-called liberal mainstream media, by saying something like "When I state what my plans are to fix the American economy, it appears that it is the liberal media's job to make sure that the American people never hear those plans". You have to figure that Romney has the liberal media's number and once Romney is elected that he will not play their little games.

I think it finally dawned on me.

Yes the "news" organizations are full of leftists who no doubt think that obumbler's agenda (whatever that is) is a good thing. In that respect they would go easy on him no matter his skin color.

But oblamer is clearly getting more than just a pass. He's getting active help. And I think it is just a manisfestation of the affirmative action mentality.

With all their blather of racial equality and their quick willingness to blame racism as the cause of opposing The One, in reality liberals see blacks in this country as poor, incapable children that just have to get help from them (the benevolent liberals) in order to succeed. So in their deepest beliefs, being tough on obummer is the same as chastising a young child who missed some notes during his piano recital. You just don't do that!

Who are the real racists here?

OK, haven't read the article yet--but #2 touched on a fantasy of mine: President Romney stands in front of the WH press corpse and says something like, "The outlets you represent, almost unanimously, did everything in their power to see that I wouldn't be here today to address you in this capacity. Please tell me why I should extend any consideration to you at all." I know, won't happen--but he came pretty close at the Cardinal Newman dinner.

And let us not forget the equally corrupt pollsters with their biased questions, slanted sampling, and bogus turnout models. They've tried to sway voters with their dishonest output just as much as the biased leftwing media has. Thanks to the New Media on the internet, that curtain has been pulled back exposing the humbugs manning the special effects. A lot of polling agencies are going to be discredited after tomorrow.

Just as the solution to improper free speech is more free speech, the solution to a biased free press is more free press. While I agree that Carlson and Patel's piece is a bit of wishful thinking, there is a solution. It's time to ramp up Fox broadcast into a prime-time and morning alternative national news outlet. All the pieces are obviously in place; Rupert only needs to pull the trigger. Bring on the Fox evening news with Brit Hume.

I agree that a large number of media personalities have lost any credibility and have shown a total lack of integrity during this campaign and administration.

I believe that those same bias individuals will beginning tomorrow, begin the undermining of the Romney administration. They will do to him what they did to Bush; he will be portrayed as stupid, out of touch and a terrible human being. The liberal media will continue their drive to a far left agenda that they in their very limited capacity think is right.

They will also try and get people someday again believe their propaganda, but I think they went too far this time and the people recognize how bias and prejudice they are.

You just can’t fix stupid

If Obama gets returned to the throne I believe a lot of things will be changing, including his consolidation of the media. The FCC will become a Ministry of Change. Worst of all, he will claim a mandate to do whatever necessary to homogenize the government/media message... across the spectrum. Look out Rush, Fox and Anti-Muslim film makers.

As long as the LSM controls print media, it will be hard for the New Media to reach everyone. #30's comment about older viewers being confined to the alphabets is true - not just in NH but because seniors generally are somewhat slower to adapt decades of viewing patterns to the New Media.

Take it from this oldster, though, that cable and satellite are not the only resources. Many of us are pretty good with a computer (as long as it doesn't break down).

The Tea Party News Network has a new site
http://tpnn.com/
and promises election coverage beginning at 3 PM tomorrow.

Perhaps under the Romney administration, what Carlson calls "political reporters" will make a last-ditch fight for self preservation and begin some actual reporting.

Wouldn't it be fun to see the New Media representatives in the majority at WH press conferences and briefings by the new Romney Press Secretary?

A President Romney was opposed by the media and he and Ryan have had to wade through them and keep their heads above the muck.

Hopefully their administration will keep in mind the duplicity of the dems and their media and ride out any storm just as Romney did about his taxes when the nervous nellies in the GOP wanted them put out as demanded.

When Newt took over the House in 1994 he capitulated to power sharing with the dems and then we watched dirty Harry and Pelousy reign of power aiaded by the press.

This is a new day and we need to keep after the media on blogs and social media and any other way. The race isn't over until the goal of smaller government and states rights is achieved.

The media's leftwing bias has become more extreme in just the last four years. During the Bush administration, the Washington Post made a half-hearted attempt to be balanced--in the news section, not the op-eds, which are full of flaming commies. They were actually much better than the NY Times during that period, believe it or not.

However, the moment Obama took office, the Post dropped the mask completely and has been more biased towards the Democrats than at any time since I first started reading it.

When Romney wins, he absolutely needs to have an aggressive media strategy. Under the First Amendment, he obviously cannot suppress the media, but he's also under no obligation to kowtow to them. I totally agree that Fox News and outlets like the Daily Caller, NY Post and Washington Times get first dibs on press conference questions and information releases. Let the WashPost, NY Times, and the broadcast networks subsist on crumbs. Make them perform actual acts of journalism if they want stories--assuming they're even capable of that anymore.

Pat Caddell accurately described today's old media
as " enemies of the people ".
Our house no longer watches any offering , news or otherwise , from ABC , CBS or NBC.
If I could figure out a way to delete them from my cable package I would .
I have no idea who the sponsors are
for the agitprop channels .
Brian Williams has long been an anti Republican
propagandist and mouthpiece for the Democrat Party.
He always used terms like " everyone says " or " people are saying " to begin his pieces slandering Republicans .
I will never forget before the 2004 election, when the unemployment number was 5.4 % .
Williams showed black and white Depression era footage of men on bread lines
and said that if President Bush
was re elected , " people predict " that will happen again in Bush's second term.
Tapper and Ms Attkisson should work for FOX. Their journalistic integrity is wasted where they are now.

The media will lost credibility with some. But there is a hard core out there--media as well as people who want very much to believe the misleading information fed them by the media. If Romney should win, it is guaranteed that there will be a howling, petty, vicious, persistent, stupid and unbalanced mob of media people attacking Romney by Wednesday morning. And they'll keep it up forever.

We do not watch any MSM on TV or listen on the radio. We do not receive any newspapers and only subscribe to Financial literature. We watch Fox Cable News, if anything, grudgingly, because even they have become somewhat PC. We get all our news from the Internet and Conservative talk radio stations some of which we tune into on the internet. I believe that many millions of Americans do the same as we do. Frankly, if anyone from the Obama Administration pops up on the screen, we often change the channel, because they nauseate us with their lies. It is a sad state of affairs that the MSM has turned into
a Democratic propaganda outlet, and quite odd
that many intelligent people will not do their job, which is to report the news in an independent manner. As the article implies their end date has been hastened by their biased reports, which bear no relation to actual reporting. Lastly, I think Fix Cable News is heading in the wrong direction by having two sides represented in most situations. To me, that is fair, but UNbalanced, because many on the left appear to be unhinged from reality. Not to pick on
one individual, but I rarely watch THE FIVE
because MR Beckel make no sense to me. I can see no reason to have him as part of the show. I am sure that the ratings would go up if they had only informed, rational folks involved. Mr Beckel is not rational. That is my opinion.

Well, let's acknowledge:
1.The media BELONGS to the leftists.
2.They are paid by the leftists - either directly through the stimulus-shmimulus money or by intimidating the companies to advertise in newsrags and on local tv.
3.They will do what they are told, no matter how many working in the media are leftists or conservatives - fascists/commies know how the vet their ranks.
4.The media will dump on Romney's administration even worse than they did before!

What needs to be done?
1.Cut government, overt and covert, funding from the lefties.
2.Build the conservative mainstream media!

The LSM is a full arm of the criminal and corrupt left. Hopefully the electorate will elect Romney and reject the criminal currently in the WH. The turning point on the LSM's bias occurred many years ago, to those actually paying attention. The Long March through our institutions has produced far too many Honey Boo Boos; if Romney wins these people will wake up Wednesday morning, go, "Hmm", and go on with their self-absorbed lives.

News Flash: I work in journalism so let me give you an insider's quick take. This profession pays poorly unless you are working for network TV. Further, journalists see society 24/7. While you are sleeping, there is another world out there, active and pulsating, and that figures into how journalists see life. Some of it is tragic. Just take my word for it.

Comment on this site and others to your heart's content. But, your voice really can be heard if you write to the news sources you abhor. That would be metro dailies? Most of them have a person who is supposed to be YOUR advocate. The e-mail is often ombudsman@thedailyfishwrap.com or whatever your local outlet is. Make it your job to find out how to contact that person, and DEMAND fair news coverage front page to back.

Why did so many papers endorse Romney this election? My guess is advertisers put the word out to publishers that their money was going elsewhere if news outlets didn't support a capitalist candidate. Think about it. Then act.

WHEN Romney wins and WHEN he gets the economy turned around it will be painfully obvious that Progressivism is bereft of any value. That's what the media supports and they thought that BO embodied Progressivism. They have been cut adrift, just as they have been so many times in the past by people who they invested their fervent beliefs in but who turned out to be duds. They never look to the root, that Progressivism is simply wrong and anyone who tries to support it is doomed to fail. The people that try must suspend rational actions.

The MSM has been unmasked and hopefully they will be replaced by an honest media that serves a valid role as watchdog for the public instead of lapdog for the dems.

Haven't watched the alphabets since Fox came on. And we won't even have the NY Times in the house to line the cat box. My cats' poop is too good for that paper. That said, I can only hope that Tucker is right. I would love, LOVE to see the NY Times reporters and those stupid TV people on the unemployment lines. Especially Stuffin Envelopes and that moron Brian Williams. Had Benghazi happened under a Republican President, there would have been a drumbeat every night about how the administration was lying, followed by how expensive gasoline has become. And then with Sandy, that would have been the knock out punch with the Republican president's incompetence. How do these people look at themselves in the mirror? Their professional dishonesty is shocking. Their demise can't come soon enough.

Waking Up to the Russian Threat
Wall Street Journal, by Sohrab Ahmari    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/12/2014 5:48:15 AM     Post Reply
Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Cancellation of Tomahawk Puts
American Navy On Perilous Course
New York Sun, by Steve Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/12/2014 5:32:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

Are government statistics deteriorating?
Washington Examiner [DC], by Michael Barone    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/12/2014 5:21:19 AM     Post Reply
My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

DURHAM, NC — A drug trafficker who worked for Al Sharpton’s nonprofit in the 1980s said that despite the preacher’s denials, he was eager to get a slice of the lucrative drug deal captured on FBI surveillance video. “It was greed. He just wanted money,” Robert Curington, 72, told The Post during a two-day interview at his North Carolina home, detailing for the first time how Sharpton stepped into the FBI’s trap — and was then forced to become a federal informant. Sharpton has said he showed interest in the drug deal only because he feared the undercover agent was

Kathleen Sebelius is getting out of Dodge, and the timing of her resignation as Secretary of Health and Human Services makes l sense. Though the 7.1 million figure for ObamaCare sign-ups is overblown, it provides the proper political cover for her to leave. By leaving now, Mrs. Sebelius also denies the GOP a juicy target in its campaign to retake the Senate this year. For keeping the Senate Democratic is vital to the president if he hopes to keep the GOP from taking apart ObamaCare. Obama might still veto their legislation, but that’s not something that will help those in his

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings. About a month ago, in a conversation with a Senate Democratic

Former 5th District U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Ruston, who resigned abruptly last summer to take a job in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Cabinet, said he won’t rule out a run for his old job next fall. Alexander, who won six terms in the U.S. House beginning with the 2002 election, said he has been saddened by the scandal that has rocked his successor, U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, and the 5th District. “I would never say anything is off of the table,” Alexander, Jindal’s secretary for veterans affairs, told The News-Star this morning. “If I felt like the people of Louisiana and the

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
