Morning Joe Agrees Woodward ‘Wrong
Guy’ To Mess With, As Scarborough
Recalls His Own WH Threats

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/28/2013 8:15:44 AM

Given the recent developments in the tension between Bob Woodward and the White House, Joe Scarborough was especially excited to discuss the story. Finding the whole ordeal “fascinating,” the panel largely agreed that Woodward is the wrong journalist to mess with — with Scarborough recalling his own past threat from the White House.(Snip)“Where do these people come from?” Scarborough asked, as Mika Brzezinski noted, “As least they talk to the press and are not afraid.” But these types of spats happen with every White House, he added. For their part, a White House official responded, saying the email

Joe doesn´ want any horse´s head showing up in HIS bed. Bush did it.

Maybe I´ve been to hard on ObamaNBC. Maybe they´re just scared.

"Scarborough recalled receiving a threat from the Bush White House, vaguely relaying a story that he chose not to detail on air."

Oh yeah, Scarborough is a real go-getter, leaving no stone unturned looking for truth. Self-polishing road apples and oranges.

Of course Bush did it too. Unbelieveable!

At least there is recognition that there is no hard hitting journalism against the Obama administration.

Who is Scarborough trying to kid?
Asking a "journalist" to retract a false story is much different than threatening someone for printing the truth.

not sure why MSNBC gets posted. the more we talk about these morons the more notoriety they get.

That´s it, scarborough, when in doubt, blame Bush. This tripe is right out of the hillary clinton playbook ---- an anecdote that can neither be proven nor disproven is suddenly disclosed, well after the fact, at a convenient time. You know, "I dodged machine gun fire on the tarmac in Bosnia . . . I tried to join the marines, but I was rejected by a chauvinist recruiter." Democrats have lies for every occasion.

Joe Skarborough is a punk of the first order, and a bottom-feeding-liar to boot. The problem with the Bush administration is they NEVER threatened anyone about anything. Pathetic.

I´ll trust Woodward on this one only because I don´t trust the White House AT ALL.Maybe the WH is going to start eating its own.

"Me too, me too!" Joe cried out. "Don´t forget about me! I´ve been threatened too, you know. I´m relevant!!"

No, Joe, you are not relevant, you are a traitor and you are a liar.

What was the deal, anyway, on that dead aide? Anything to that story, Joe? Inquiring minds want to know.

Cow Cookies!

If Joe Scareborough had been threatened by the Bush Whitehouse, it would have been on the LSM 24/7 for weeks. Then every other journalist would have come up with some imagined threat.

McCain strolls into Dem caucus meeting

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

A former University of Northern Colorado basketball coach is the man calling himself an “Islamist jihadist” and threatening the demise of Mormons and Catholics at sites across Arizona and Colorado, authorities said Tuesday. Before being spotted by police in Steamboat Springs last week, Christopher Dewitt Craig reportedly made a stop at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, Ariz. A spokesman for the institution said he didn’t believe Craig has ties there. On July 10, Craig, 32, reportedly entered a classroom at the college, raised a Bible in the air, asked the instructor whether he was Mormon and followed his response

Wednesday morning the Bureau of Economic Analysis released its Gross Domestic Product estimate for the second quarter of 2013. Though it will surely be revised up or down in the coming months, the number is 1.7%. In the first quarter of this year the GDP was 1.1%, revised down from initial estimates that were as high as 2.5%. The last quarter of 2012 saw the GDP grow only 0.1%. The result of today´s GDP announcement has resulted in almost uniformly positive headlines. Business Insider went with all caps: GDP CRUSHES EXPECTATIONS.

WASHINGTON- Scattered news reports say some restaurants are cutting employee hours or not hiring because of healthcare reform, but U.S. officials say it´s not true. "It turns out restaurants aren´t limiting hours on average -- they´re increasing them and restaurants are hiring at a faster pace than expected. All of which to say that the Affordable Care Act isn´t restraining job growth for restaurants at all," a statement by the White House said.

Obama’s scheme to take over Texas
Washington Times (D.C), by Greg Abbott    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/31/2013 5:37:43 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration’s interference in Texas’ redistricting and voter-ID litigation does not protect voting rights. It protects the Democratic Party. Recall that just a few months ago, high-ranking Obama operatives launched a campaign to “turn Texas blue.” The administration’s foray into Texas voting rights litigation is just another page in that political playbook. In redistricting, the Obama administration has aligned itself with Democratic state representatives and Democratic members of Congress who already are suing Texas. It is no surprise then that the legal position of President Obama’s attorneys seeks to improve Democratic candidates’ prospects.

A general examination to test eighth grade students in Kentucky´s Bullitt County school system in 1912 has stumped some adults and ignited a debate over the intelligence of children today. The arithmetic, geography, civil government, physiology, grammar and history questions range from ´What is a personal pronoun?´ to ´Who first discovered Lawrence River?´ and ´Define Cerebrum´. Posted on Lew Rockwell, the type-written test has promoted some adults to try and answer the questions, and caused some parents to critique the U.S. school system.

Huma Abedin, the Hillary Clinton loyalist and wife of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, will reportedly take an "extended vacation" from her job as the chief of staff of Hillary Clinton´s transition team. Politico reports the move is not a formal "leave of absence." “Huma is not taking a leave of absence, but she will be taking vacation time in August to support her family during Anthony’s campaign," a Weiner campaign source told Politico. “She had always intended to do this.” According to Politico, "it was a loose plan she’d had for weeks, since Hillary Clinton

The top state lawmakers in Illinois are suing Gov. Pat Quinn after he halted the salaries of legislators because of their failure to find a solution to the state´s $100 billion pension crisis. House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton, both Democrats, filed the 12-page complaint with the Circuit Court of Cook County Tuesday, calling Quinn´s actions "purely political and unconstitutional." "This matter is of fundamental constitutional importance, as Governor Quinn´s action threatens the independence of each branch of government," Cullerton and Madigan said in a joint news release.

After a long three-year gap since their last exclusive sit-down interview with President Obama, you might think The New York Times would be ready to ask tough questions on the most contentious issues of the day, beginning with the deepening Obama scandals. Wrong. Instead, the Times defined the “news” in this interview to be Obama’s counter-attacks. Their stories focused on Obama’s accusations that (a) the Republicans are liars about Obamacare, (b) the Republicans exaggerate the benefits of building the Keystone XL pipeline, and (c) the Republicans oppose his use of executive power because he has the gall

WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain have been asked by President Barack Obama to travel to Egypt next week to urge the military to move ahead on new elections, the senators said Tuesday. Egypt has been roiled by deadly protests since President Mohammed Morsi was toppled in a military coup on July 3, developments that have threatened the $1.5 billion in annual U.S. military and economic aid to the Arab world´s most populous country. Responding to reporters´ questions Tuesday about an attempt to cut off the aid, Graham offered up word that Obama has sought the help

The Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who broke the details revealed by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden regarding that agency’s information gathering and warehousing practices, was scheduled to testify about those programs before members of Congress. On Tuesday, Greenwald revealed that this informal hearing, organized by Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Alan Grayson (D-FL), has been cancelled. Greenwald, who would have testified via satellite from his residence in Brazil, was going to share his knowledge of the NSA’s surveillance programs before an informal gathering of members of Congress.

WASHINGTON- "Ready for Hillary," a Super PAC backed by Democratic heavyweights, has raised $1 million more than three years before the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not said she will be running for president, Politico reported. But she is also clearly keeping her options open. Former U.S. Rep. Ellen Tauschner, D-Calif., who has also served in the State Department, is an adviser to the PAC. She said the PAC´s donors are sending a message that Clinton is the one to beat in 2016. "Being a voter is not a passive sport," Tauscher said.

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all

Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,

Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
