CBS’s ‘Face The Nation’ Edits Out Senator Ted Cruz Condemning Obama’s Abuse Of Power (Video)

‘Face The Nation’ Edits Out Senator Cruz Condemning Obama’s ‘Abuse Of Power’ – Newsbusters

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on CBS Face the Nation on Sunday morning and was met with a barrage of questions from host Bob Schieffer about his involvement in the government shutdown. Apart from being the victim of Schieffer’s accusations that the Tea Party senator was to blame for the shutdown, it also appears that Mr. Cruz was the victim of editing by CBS.

Based on video from Senator Cruz’s YouTube page and what aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation broadcast, the senator’s comments surrounding President Obama’s “abuse of power” were edited from the program. Instead what aired was a segment that ignored many of the senator’s complaints directed at President Obama.

In the video that aired on CBS, the interview between Schieffer and Cruz ended with the following back and forth:

BOB SCHIEFFER: Will you run for president?

SEN. TED CRUZ: “Well, look, my focus is on the challenges facing this country right now (UNINTEL) senate. My focus, for example, is on the abuse of power from the president. Let’s take something like the IRS scandal-“

BOB SCHIEFFER: “So, I’ll take that as a yes or a no.”

SEN. TED CRUZ: “Eight months ago-“

BOB SCHIEFFER: “Or still thinking about it.”

SEN. TED CRUZ: “Well, what you can take that as, is that my focus is standing and fighting right now in the senate to bring back jobs and economic growth. Economic growth is my number one priority…”

BOB SCHIEFFER: “Thank you, so much, for joining us and we’ll talk to you again.”

However, as Senator Cruz’s YouTube channel showed, the Texas senator had extensive commentary on President Obama that mysteriously did not make it to air, just two days before the president’s State of the Union address:

SCHIEFFER: “Will you run for President?”

CRUZ: “My focus is on the abuse of power of this President. Let’s take something like the IRS scandal-“

SCHIEFFER: “Do I take that as a yes or a no?”

CRUZ: “What you can take is that my focus is standing and fighting right now in the Senate to bring back jobs and economic growth. Let me tell you something that is deeply concerning – the abuse of power from this Administration. We’ve seen multiple filmmakers prosecuted and the government’s gone after them. Whether it’s the poor fellow that did the film that the President blamed Benghazi and the terrorist attacks on, turns out that wasn’t the reason for the attack but the Administration went and put that poor fellow in jail on unrelated charges. Just this week it was broken that Dinesh D’Souza, who did a very big movie criticizing the president, is now being prosecuted by this Administration.”

SCHIEFFER: “Senator-“

CRUZ: “Can you image the reaction if the Bush Administration had went, gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?”

SCHIEFFER: “Senator-“

CRUZ: :It should trouble everyone the government uses government power and the IRS in particular to target their enemies and you are talking a new minutes to Chuck Schumer-“

SCHIEFFER: “We are going to leave this for another day, senator. Thank you for joining us and we’ll talk to you again.”

Now it is certainly plausible that CBS edited out the ending of the Cruz interview for time, however given that Cruz’s comments were extremely critical of the president and came just two days before an embattled President Obama gives his State of the Union speech, the timing of such editing is highly inappropriate and unusual.

CBS should explain why it felt it appropriate to edit out a high profile senator accusing the President of the United States of targeting his politcal enemies. These are strong accusations leveled at the president, and CBS’s viewers deserve to hear them, yet strangely they were not.

More child abuse from our reeducation camps

Reeducation camps is increasingly, I think, an apt description of our public schools. William Teach alerts us to the latest example of punishing kids for being kids

(CBS Charlotte) A 5-year-old boy was reportedly suspended from school after making a gun gesture with his hand on the playground.

His father, David Hendrix, was furious when he found out his son was issued a suspension for the gesture.

“He was playing army on the playground,” Hendrix told WBTV. “I just felt like the punishment was way too severe.”

Any punishment at all would be too severe. This has all gotten incredibly idiotic, with unhinged liberals leading the way. I’m sure I don’t even have to explain why. And if I did, liberals/progressives still wouldn’t get it.

Teach is correct, there ought to be no punishment for a small child playing, as kids have done for eons. The punishment ought to go to the buffoons that exact such punishment on kids.

 

You cannot help laughing at people this detached from reality

Wyblog has the latest on the low brain power voters

College students in New Jersey voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. And now they’re shocked to discover that his signature legislative achievement hits them where it hurts, in the pocketbook.

It was a health care shocker for college students in New Jersey who found out that they can’t buy low-cost health insurance at their schools because of the Affordable Care Act.

Now, they are at the risk of being without insurance, CBS 2’s Christine Sloan reported.

Many students have found themselves in health care limbo this semester. Community colleges in New Jersey used to offer cheap health insurance for hundreds of dollars a year but they had to drop the practice because Federal Law prohibits the sale of bare bones policies.

Under the Affordable Care Act it would have cost more to run the program and the cost would have been passed on to students.

“More than a thousand dollars per student and that is dramatically different,” said Union County Community College, Vice President of Administrative Services, Stephen Nacco said.

Students like Carlos Arias depended on the low-cost health care.

“I’m kind of healthy right now but I am worried that when something happens I’m not going to go to the hospital,” Arias said.

If only these students studied a bit of history, and possessed any common sense, or read THIS BLOG! Ed told you, I told you………..

Long Island Middle School bans childhood!

Well, they did not ban childhood yet, but give them time

As CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Monday, officials at Weber Middle School in Port Washington are worried that students are getting hurt during recess. Thus, they have instituted a ban on footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds.

Tossing a football during recess has long seemed to be a rite of passage for kids in the school community.

“I think we need the soccer balls, the footballs and everything, so we can have some fun,” one student said.

But the students will have no such option anymore. They were just informed that during recess, football is out and Nerf ball is in. Hard soccer balls have been banned, along with baseballs and lacrosse balls, rough games of tag, or cartwheels unless supervised by a coach.

Good Freaking Grief. I thought we wanted our kids MORE active to fight childhood obesity. Yet, now the trend might be banning balls, jumping jacks, running,  what else? I mean anything can be “dangerous” can’t it? And are we not concerned about the environment? Should we be encouraging kids to play with balls made of foam? Besides Nerf balls suck! Won’t that kill Mother Earth or something? I mean if this movement takes hold what will become of childhood? What will we have in 20 years? A bunch of fat kids going to schools in bubbles. And face it, no one likes a fat kid in a bubble!

Chris Christie, a little closer to admitting he is a Democrat every day

Guess who Governor RINO is blaming for a possible government shutdown. Go on, guess

Via Newsmax:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday “responsible Republican leaders” would not allow the government to shut down.

“That, by definition, is a failure. You’ve gotta work it out,” Christie, a Republican, said in a segment set to air Sunday on “CBS This Morning,” Politico reported.

Christie didn’t name any GOP politicians, but his remarks came the day after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz finished a 21-hour speech on the Senate floor advocating for the defunding of Obamacare. Both he and Cruz are seen as possible GOP contenders in the 2016 presidential race.”I think there’s got to be a solution other than that,” Christie said in the CBS episode, NJ.com reported. “I don’t think we should be doing that.”

“I think it’s always irresponsible if you’re running the government to be advocating for shutting it down,” Christie said.

Of course no Republican actually is advocating for shutting the government down, but Christie is playing politics here. Oh goodie, another politics over principles “Republican”

 

Can you believe we once thought Colin Powell was a Conservtive?

He has turned out to be nothing more than a Democrat, and he seems to have a touch of Racial Obsession Syndrome going too. Right Scoop has video, that will not embed here of Powell calling the Zimmerman verdict “questionable”. Good grief!
