During a Fox News segment on the ongoing fight over whether nudists should be allowed to walk the streets of San Francisco, The Five co-host Bob Beckel gave a rather colorful explanation for why people become nudists in their adult life. The remarks came after co-host Dana Perino asked the table: “What happened to these people as children that they don’t want to wear any clothes?” Andrea Tantaros said the nudists are “desperate for attention.” "Most of them were gang banged probably,” Beckel chimed in. The two-shot camera showed Perino wincing in shock.
Comments: The Five has just become unwatchable. Between Beckel´s constant hateful, obnoxious, offensive behavior and the adolescent behavior of the rest of them (Bolling and Perino excluded) it is very difficult to take. You would think Beckel would be very thankful he has a good job. You know he has to be paid a good salary on Fox.
Mr. Beckel has never been very bright and has no clue what integrity or credibility is but he has a very sick mind.
Mr. Beckel must be part of the Obama cesspool administration scum discovery crew, his mind lives in a very dark and strange place. His fantasies are sick and twisted so he fits right into the liberal mind set.
I guess Bob B has never heard the term exhibitionist. I don´t know the current psychological explanation for why people become exhibitionists. However I can venture a guess based on my experience with this discipline that whatever it is, it is probably wrong.
I don´t know why my comments regarding leftists always include the word "moron" but I just can´t come up with a better alternative. Surely THE FIVE could find someone on the left who can better articulate thoughts that the current idiot savant.
The "three" FNC "tokens" are sadly being kept on. I had hoped that a Romney win would seal the fate of Beckel, Williams, and Rivers. He didn´t win and I´m afraid we will be stuck with these three for at least 4 more years. I too change the channel when either of their odious mugs appear....
Beckel has said that he was abused as a child; punished unmercifully. I think it gave him a troubled, disturbed mind set that has prevented him from achieving any happiness in life because of his constantly sour disposition. Amateur psychiatrist, here.
#28, that was Jerry Springer, another stupid, but very lucky, Lib. Beckel got caught with a barely-legal hooker, trying to buy drugs and getting squeezed for blackmail by her pimp. You know...typical Dem behavior.
The ban in Frisco had nothing to do with nudist, these guys are gay activist and perverts, probably a lot like Beckel. You noticed that the law does not apply to parades and street fairs that feature gay and bondage groups.
Nudism is healthy and body shape is irrelevant, sex is banned in public areas and has nothing to do with it. Overt sexual activity will get you tossed from any real Nudist Resort where this lifestyle has its rightful place.
Don´t be a bunch of tight azzed prudes. No wonder people think conservatives are going out of style. Check out the rules from AANR and learn. This is America where people can assemble freely with their like minded fellow citizens.
Just not in public places where children and those that would be offended gather.
The Mark Twain Prize, handed out each year in the Nation´s Capital, is generally a nonpartisan affair meant to toast the funniest people in pop culture, period. This year, both the honoree and a key presenter couldn´t resist the chance to get political during the ceremony. The night belonged to beloved sketch comedy star Carol Burnett, who used the debate over the recently ended government shutdown in her acceptance speech: This is very encouraging. I mean it was a long time in coming, but I understand because there are so many people funnier than I am, especially here in Washington. With any luck,
It’s past time for the media to begin asking President Obama tough questions about the IRS conservative targeting scandal. After all he was involved, publicly, from the beginning. Last Friday, the American Center for Law and Justice (where I serve as Chief Counsel) filed its Second Amended Complaint against the United States, the IRS, and a legion of IRS officials. This Complaint, in which we represent 41 organizations in 22 states, presents perhaps the most complete story yet of the IRS conservative targeting scandal. And it is an ugly story indeed. What was sold to the American public as a low-level scandal perpetrated
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be among the most qualified presidents in years if she was elected in 2016. "If Hillary Clinton does run, she´ll be one of the best-prepared people -- and she will win, I believe, if she runs," said Pelosi, D-Calif., in an interview for ABC´s "This Week" broadcast Sunday. "She´ll be one of the best-prepared people to enter the White House in a long time. She´ll — she would be a great president." Pelosi didn´t mention Vice President Joe Biden, who also is believed to be seriously considering
In the latest sign of the evolving GOP civil war, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today slapped Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the leader of the anti-Obamacare faction, for talking about killing the health care system more than working to end it. At a media breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, Thomas Donohue said that he would like to work with Cruz on issues, but conceded that he doesn’t know the Republican. When asked about indications that the business community would like the senator to “sit down and shut up,” Donohue said, “Well, that might be one thing
Despite his anger at President Obama, Glenn Beck has not exactly looked back fondly on the George W. Bush years. He’s slammed the last president as a “progressive” Republican, and repeated the same point on Monday responding to Jeb Bush‘s criticisms of Ted Cruz and the shutdown strategy. Beck suggested that after years of Bush progressivism being pushed on the public, maybe people should stop listening to them. Beck first tore into Bush’s argument for an alternative health care plan, calling it borderline “fascist” and saying the Republican establishment is no longer contending that the government shouldn’t be involved in health
As you may have heard, President Obama opted to do a speech from the Rose Garden rather than granting a one-on-one interview or holding a press conference to provide a State of the Affordable Care Act. Quite frankly, it was his only option. Because if even a High School journalist was given direct access to the President, or if one member of the White House Press Corps actually did his or her job—which they certainly did not during a press conference right out of an SNL skit 12 days ago—real questions that weren’t asked would certainly be asked now, including the following:
Members of Congress must pay secret fees known as “party dues” to the Democratic and Republican parties to secure and maintain top committee chairmanships and assignments, newly uncovered internal documents reveal. (Snip) Senior congressional staffers say the committee price lists have long been rumored to exist but that few people on Capitol Hill have seen them, giving them an almost "mythical" quality. The book contains copies of the Democratic and Republican price lists detailing how much money lawmakers must raise to obtain and keep their seats on congressional committees.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, under fire for the glitch-filled rollout of Obamacare, intends to testify on Capitol Hill “as early as next week,” according to an HHS spokeswoman. “We fully intend for the secretary and other HHS officials to testify before Congress as early as next week, as they have numerous times in the past, but nothing is confirmed at this time,” HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters said. “We have always indicated to the committee that she intended to testify but that she had a scheduling conflict,” Peters added. “We continue to work with them to find a
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that he takes umbrage at Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) assertion that Republicans could have banded together and successfully defunded Obamacare in the government shutdown but instead were responsible for losing the fight. “Well, there’s a lot of ironies here because there were some of us and Republican senators that fought for 25 days against Obamacare up until Christmas eve morning. Campaigned across America in 2012 saying that as we elect Mitt Romney, we will repeal and replace Obamacare. We were the leaders in the fight during that time. The point is, though, that it
Late last week news broke of a connection between grenades illegally trafficked from the U.S. into Mexico by Jean Baptiste Kingery and the murder of Mexican police officers. Years ago, Kingery was suspected of trafficking parts for grenades into Mexico and then building explosives for cartels. An incident report detailing a fire fight between Mexican police and cartel members states, "Jalisco State Police Officers murdered during a shooting with members of the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion in Tepatitlan, Jalisoc, MX. In the late hours of October 10, 2013, officers with the Jalisco State Police engaged in a shooting with members
Yes, really. As you read this morning, I was expecting a some perfunctory contrition and token acceptance of responsibility from President Bystander during his Obamacare remarks in the Rose Garden today. I was wrong. The appearance was more of a pep rally, replete with upbeat promises and applauding supporters. Aides might as well have hung a large "mission accomplished" banner over Obama´s head. The fact that the Obamacare websites -- a core element of the law functioning -- are in total shambles and won´t be fixed for many weeks or even months were all but shrugged off as an afterthought.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said although Republicans have had "tactical differences" on how to get rid of Obamacare, they all share the same goal. He suggested that Republicans will run against the president´s signature health care law in 2014. "Obamacare is the worst piece of legislation that´s been passed in the last half century -- the single biggest step in the direction of Europeanizing our country," McConnell told CBS´s "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "We need to get rid of it. And if the American people will give us a majority in the Senate and a new president,
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore attacked the Senate Conservatives Fund for endorsing McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin on Friday. “Matt Bevin now has the dubious honor of standing with a self-serving D.C. fundraising group that made its name by recruiting and promoting unelectable candidates that ensured Barack Obama a majority in the Senate,” Moore said in a statement to the Washington Post. “They clearly care less about Kentuckians than they do about their reputation for supporting laughably bad candidates. Now they can add a New England bailout recipient who claims he went to MIT to their
Members of Congress and their staffs are on red alert tonight for a CBS 60 Minutes investigation by veteran CBS reporter Steve Kroft and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News editor Peter Schweizer exposing how lawmakers convert campaign donations into lavish lifestyle upgrades for themselves and their family members. Sources say top CBS executives thought the report was so explosive that they made it the show’s lead story and delayed airing it for another week in order to capture tonight’s much larger NFL-viewing audience. The report features selected revelations from Schweizer’s forthcoming book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your
WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama is expected to acknowledge that widespread problems with his health care law´s rollout are unacceptable, as the administration scrambles to fix the glitches. Obama was scheduled to speak Monday from the Rose Garden, his first health care-focused event since the cascade of computer problems became apparent. The troublesome rollout of the health care exchanges has been a glaring embarrassment for Obama´s signature legislative achievement. White House officials say the president will discuss steps the administration is taking to address the glitches, including ramping up staffing at call centers where people can apply for insurance by phone.
A reader who says that he has done large software installations for one of the big accounting firms wrote the following in an email. It seems to validate the concerns discussed in my Washington Examiner column on the Obamacare IT mess.1. The integration aspect is most difficult. In this case, the integration of various Federal Systems to determine subsidies is proving a daunting task. You are dealing with legacy systems that don’t integrate very well. Also the integration with the insurers consisting of sending an insurance application to the insurance company, a much easier task, was also screwed up. 2. The
In an essay "Freedom of the Press" George Orwell wrote presciently about the dangers of a press too bound to prevailing orthodoxy to print anything else: "Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban. Anyone who has lived long in a foreign country will know of instances of sensational items of news -- things which on their own merits would get the big headlines -- being kept right out of the British press, not because the Government intervened but because of a general tacit agreement that "it wouldn´t do" to mention that
During an interview for “This Week,” former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush encouraged Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz – who told ABC News that he would do “anything” to stop Obamacare – to come up with an alternative and show some restraint if his aim was to repeal the president’s signature healthcare law. “I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative...we could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles...and two, show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work,” Bush
President Barack Obama will declare the glitches in a new healthcare website ´unacceptable´ on Monday as his team scrambles to fix problems that have tainted the roll-out of his signature healthcare law. Fresh from two weeks of budget battles that have consumed Washington, Obama will hold an event at 11:25am in the White House Rose Garden with consumers, small business owners, and pharmacists who have been affected by the new law. The move is the highest-profile step in a broad damage control effort that the administration has launched since technical problems with the website, healthcare.gov, have prevented Americans nationwide from signing up
The word “appropriate” is one of the better homonyms in the English language. As an adjective, it is defined as “suitable or proper in the circumstances,” while as a verb appropriate means “to take something for one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission.” Which brings us to the Washington Redskins. Currently the Redskins are more than a disappointing NFC East franchise; they are a national litmus test. The franchise has in recent months taken a lot of heat – and not Miami Heat – because its name is a racial slur. Which - and we might as well deal with this
Tea Party groups and big-business interests will ratchet up the civil war for the heart and soul of the Republican Party during the 2014 elections. Fed up with conservatives who do not want comprehensive immigration reform and more government expansion, business groups like the Chamber of Commerce will seek to oust conservative lawmakers in Congress. “We are going to get engaged,” Scott Reed, a senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told Bloomberg News. “The need is now more than ever to elect people who understand the free market and not silliness.” The chamber reportedly "spent $35.7 million on federal elections
President Obama is "frustrated" by the disastrous launch of an online computer marketplace for Obamacare, the White House says. Here are five reasons why frustration isn´t enough. He should be frightened.1. It´s worse than his team has let on. The White House has tried to position the failed first days of Obamacare as mere "glitches" caused by the site´s popularity. An administration spokesman told the Washington Post on Sunday that the "main driver of the problem is volume." That is intentionally misleading. The White House has heard complaints from insurance companies, consumers, and health policy experts about issues embedded deeply
President Obama´s long-winded speech in defense of his health care reform nearly put one audience member to sleep, with a guest standing directly behind the President almost fainting as he continued to drone on for nearly 30 minutes. A young woman, who appeared to be pregnant, dressed in a bright red frock stood at attention behind the President during his Rose Garden remarks, smiling brightly during much of the address. But Obama´s verbosity got the best of her — and she nearly toppled over, seemingly a result of the bright D.C. sun. She began to appear lightheaded, blinking several times
New concerns are being raised about so-called ObamaCare "navigators" following a string of reports about the questionable backgrounds of those selected to guide Americans through what is shaping up to be a rocky roll-out of the health care law. The concerns come on top of the drama over the HealthCare.gov site itself, which is the main federal hub for would-be participants and has been riddled with technical problems. The "navigators" are outreach workers, funded by federal taxpayer dollars, who are supposed to help people sign up for coverage. The Daily Caller reported earlier this week that one "enrollment assister" in Lawrence, Kan.,
