When buffoons are celebrated…………………

……………we get noted idiots like Cornel West on CNN as if he has anything relevant or important to add

Cornel West couldn’t seem to answer Carol Costello‘s question about whether or not the broadcast shooting death of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was racially motivated.

During the Thursday morning editon of CNN Newsroom, Costello opened West’s visit by asking whether or not he believed “race [played] a factor” in the actions of Bryce Williams, real name Vester Flanagan, during his “rampage” on Wednesday. In response, West delivered one of the most verbose, convoluted and uncomfortable non-answers of the topic of race and violence ever witnessed.

Some of the more academic bits of West’s ramble include:

“The fundamental question is how do you get at this spiritual decay and this moral decadence in this society as a whole? All of us have to deal with rage. How do you filter that rage through love?”

“The problem is we live in a society where people don’t give or get enough love. They don’t give or get enough justice. They don’t give or get enough community. When you’re isolated and insulated, that rage bubbles up.”

“Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”

Good freaking grief, shut up already Cornel! You are a rambling. incoherent buffoon. Of course, I must also note that Carol Costello is not all that sharp either. I mean she actually asks IF race MIGHT have had something to do with the killing in Virginia? The guy who did the shooting said he wanted to inspire a RACE WAR! For goodness sake, how hard can it be to do the math on that one Carol Costello? Of course, to a Leftist, the idea that a Black can be racist is foreign. Only Whites can be racist right? This is what they teach in college now, which explains why so many idiots are college grads!

Hillary’s State Department Routinely Hid Emails On Purpose – Big Government

.

.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s State Department routinely failed to preserve its own emails in order to intentionally hide them from official records.

Clinton-era email use at the State Department was fraught with widespread, intentional concealment, according to an October 2014-March 2015 semiannual report to Congress filed by the State Department’s office of inspector general (OIG).

Only a fraction of the messages sent by email were stored as “record emails,” according to the report.

“The review of the State Messaging and Archive Retrieval Toolset (SMART) and Record Email found that, out of the more than 1 billion emails sent in 2011, employees created just over 61,000 official emails; and they created even fewer – 41,000 – in 2013,” the inspector general found. “OIG recommended that the Department establish policies governing usage and that system designers engage with focus groups to enhance the system’s efficiency.” (p. vii)

Clinton’s administration did nothing to teach people how to store emails and oversaw the widespread cover-up of emails that should have been kept.

“A 2009 upgrade in the Department’s system facilitated the preservation of emails as official records. However, Department employees had not received adequate training or guidance on their responsibilities for using those systems to preserve ‘record emails,’” according to the OIG report.

“Record email usage varied widely across bureaus and missions. The Bureau of Administration needed to exercise central oversight of the use of the record email function. OIG found that some employees did not create record emails because they did not want to make the email available in searches or feared that this availability would inhibit debate about pending decisions.”

Former Secretary Clinton has turned over thumb drives and a private email server containing her emails from her tenure at the State Department. An inter-agency government task force led by the Department of Justice and the FBI is currently investigating how classified information ended up on Clinton’s server, and whether foreign agents were able to obtain any of the information on Clinton’s server.

CNN National Security Analyst Unloads On Hillary Over Email Scandal: ‘I Wonder Whether She Is Capable Of Being President’ – Daily Caller

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal should disqualify her from the Oval Office.

At least so says former CIA operative and CNN national security analyst Bob Baer, who is not known for being a political partisan.

“If this was on her server and it got into her smart phone, there’s a big problem there,” Baer said during an appearance on CNN International Saturday, noting that the sensitivity of the information reportedly found on Clinton’s private server was likely more secret than what Edward Snowden pilfered.

“Seriously, if I had sent a document like this over the open Internet I’d get fired the same day, escorted to the door and gone for good – and probably charged with mishandling classified information,” Baer said.

“If this in fact were on her hand held [phone] – was sent to her or she forwarded it in any way – I wonder whether she is capable of being president,” he added.

Pressed by the host as to whether he really thought this situation was a “deal breaker” for Clinton’s presidential candidacy, Baer said, “As a national security employee, a former one, yes.”

“I can’t tell you how bad this is,” he went on. “A lot of things get talked about, a lot of gossip, but having documents like this sent across the Internet, it could be hacked very easily and probably were hacked, is a transgression that I don’t think the president of the United States should be allowed to, you know, have committed.”

Number Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Flagged For Classified Data Grows To 60 As Review Continues – Washington Times

While media coverage has focused on a half-dozen of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal emails containing sensitive intelligence, the total number of her private emails identified by an ongoing State Department review as having contained classified data has ballooned to 60, officials told The Washington Times.

That figure is current through the end of July and is likely to grow as officials wade through a total of 30,000 work-related emails that passed through her personal email server, officials said. The process is expected to take months.

The 60 emails are among those that have been reviewed and cleared for release under the Freedom of Information Act as part of a open-records lawsuit. Some of the emails have multiple redactions for classified information.

Among the first 60 flagged emails, nearly all contained classified secrets at the lowest level of “confidential” and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret,” officials told the Times.

Those 60 emails do not include two emails identified in recent days by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III as containing “top-secret” information possibly derived from Pentagon satellites, drones or intercepts, which is some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets.

State officials and the intelligence community are working to resolve questions about those and other emails with possible classified information, a process that isn’t likely to be completed until January.

That will be right around the time Mrs. Clinton is slated to face voters in the Iowa caucuses in her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

As the number of suspect emails grows and the classification review continues, it is clear that predictions contained in a notification Mr. McCullough sent Congress this summer is likely to hold true: Mrs. Clinton’s personal emails likely contained hundreds of disclosures of classified information.

How Did Hillary’s Lawyers Search A Server No Longer In Her Possession – Legal Insurrection

There is a time gap which may hold the key to Hillary’s hide-and-seek email game.

According to the Washington Post and other reporting, a Colorado server company obtained possession of Hillary’s server in 2013, transferred the data, leaving a blank server with no usable data at a storage facility in New Jersey.

Yet, in a letter filed on August 12, 2015 with the federal Court in the Judicial Watch FOIA litigation regarding Huma Abedin’s outside employment, Hillary’s lawyer, David Kendall. represented that Hillary did not ask counsel to review her emails until late 2014. [Full embed at bottom of post.] He also confirmed that the Colorado company has had possession of the original server since 2013.

David Kendall letter Clinton Emails 8-12-2015 excerpt 2

So how could Hillary’s lawyers review a server no longer in Hillary’s possession, and which had been wiped clean?

It’s worth noting that at her March 10, 2015, UN press conference, when a reporter noted that some people suggested an independent review of the server, Hillary did not say that she no longer had the original server or that it had been wiped clean.

Instead, she said “the server will remain private.”

The server contains personal communications from my husband and me, and I believe I have met all of my responsibilities and the server will remain private…

.

.
(transcript)

It is that original server that apparently has been turned over to the federal government. Plus a thumb drive, which purportedly only has work-related emails.

If the data was transferred to some other server, where is that one?

On Friday, August 14, 2015, the State Department is required to provide additional information to the Court.

Maybe that will shed some light.

But I’m not hopeful.

Fox Poll: Two Percent Of Voters Think Hillary Told The Truth About E-mail Server, And Only Three Percent Of Democrats – Hot Air

Six months ago, Hillary Clinton insisted that her private e-mail system contained no sensitive material, and that the federal government had no need of her server. With federal investigators trying to track down all of the records from her private e-mail server and revelations about Top Secret/compartmented material on her unauthorized system, Hillary’s public statements look like lies to a majority of those polled in the latest Fox News survey. In a poll of 1,008 registered voters, 58% say Hillary lied about the e-mails, and 54% believe she damaged national security:

A Fox News poll released Friday finds a 58 percent majority thinks Clinton “knowingly lied” when she announced in a March press conference that no emails on her private server contained classified information. A third says there is “another explanation” for internal government investigators determining secret info was in fact on Clinton’s server (33 percent).

Moreover, by a 54-37 percent margin, voters feel Clinton put our national security at risk by using a private email server.

The poll gave three options: Clinton lied, There’s another explanation, and Clinton told the truth. Only 2% overall think Hillary told the truth, a staggeringly bad number, and only 33% overall think there’s another explanation than Hillary lying. On option 3, the internals on this poll are instructive. The highest that Clinton told the truth polls in the demographics is 5% among black voters, where 63% choose another explanation. Among Democrats, the number is a whopping three percent. And among younger voters – who are presumably very familiar with e-mail – the “Hillary’s honest” option didn’t get enough responses to register.

Frankly, this question is designed to let respondents get off the hook for deciding whether Hillary lied or not. The middle option of another explanation implies incompetency – not exactly a good look for a presidential candidate – or some milder form of dishonesty. And yet, not many voters took the middle option. Self-described liberal, Democrats, and black voters all had majorities choosing the less-bad option, but almost none of them chose told the truth.

Instead, majorities in almost all other demos believe Hillary lied, even when given a softer option. Younger voters under 35 years of age were especially harsh on this judgment at 63/30/0, but the next age demo (35-54) was almost as dismissive, 61/31/2. In a rare show of consensus, those with (59/34/1) and without (58/33/2) college degrees agree on Hillary’s dishonesty. Two-thirds of independents believe she flat-out lied (67/23/2), and even a majority of women agree (51/40/2).

The responses to the question of harm to national security fall into the same pattern. This was presented as a yes/no, and 54% overall chose yes. The key demos all have yes majorities:

* Independents – 54/36
* Women – 50/40
* College degree – 53/38
* No college degree – 55/37
* 18-35YOs – 61/34

In other words, she’s rapidly approaching Richard Nixon levels of trust in, say, August 1973 or so.

A couple of other notes in the poll will have an indirect impact on Hillary, who’s going to be a continuity candidate based on her participation in the Obama administration. A recent trend toward the positive in Barack Obama’s job approval reversed itself in this poll, the first taken since the Iran deal was announced. He slid from a 46/46 in the beginning of July to 42/51, his worst showing since March. Voters want Congress to reject the Iran deal 31/58, and substantially more of them believe Iran can’t be trusted, 18/75, which is actually a slight improvement from the historical trend. With that hanging in the air, Hillary would have had trouble gaining trust from voters anyway – but the e-mail server scandal all but moots the point now.

Marc Lamont Hill hit with Nuclear Grade case of Racial Obsession Syndrome

For those of you who wonder why I sometimes say “Good Freaking Grief” I give you a classic case study in Racial Obsession Syndrome Marc Lamont Hill, who is outrageously outraged that Dr. Ben Carson is not obsessed with skin color

Hill went after Dr. Carson as he added:

But what Ben Carson was saying was even a step further into racial amnesia and racial blindness. And that was that he was essentially saying that race isn’t real, that, you know, when you cut people and you operate as a doctor, you realize that the human body is one thing and race is some kind of social fiction. And the truth is, race is very real. Race may not be a biological reality, but it is a social construct. It may not effect the physical body, but it effects the body politic.

The liberal commentator concluded by vaguely complaining that Republicans “hate certain people and love” Ben Carson. Hill:

And Ben Carson, I’m sure he scored big point with Republicans, big points with the base because they want to be race deniers. They want to deny the existence of race. And when you have a black Republican who is willing to stand up and say race doesn’t matter in a certain kind of way, it will score big points. They will continue to hate certain people and love him, and that’s a problem.

See how easy it is to be a Leftist folks? No thinking involved at all. In fact, thinking is verboten by the Left. Just become outraged, talk really fast, and emote. Just call everyone who is on the Right racists. If they talk about race, call them racists, if they ignore race and see people as individuals, call them racists. If it is a Black Republican call them racial deniers (code for Uncle Toms). After all no “real” Black person would ever be a Republican, at least according to bigots like Marc Lamont Hill, who makes a nice living inciting racial divisions that hurt every American. You might think that I am off base but what would Marc Lamont Hill do for a paycheck if he ever told the truth about America being easily the most racially tolerant society in history? I mean it is hard out there for a race pimp right Marc?

Leftist Nutbag On CNN Asks Pam Geller If She Relishes Being Targeted For Death By Islamo-Nazis (Video)

CNN Host Actually Asks Pamela Geller If She Relishes Being The Target Of Boston Beheading Attack – Right Scoop

.

.
Breaking tonight on CNN is the news that Pamela Geller was in fact one of the beheading targets of 26-year-old Usaama Rahim, a Muslim jihadi that police shot dead yesterday in Boston:

Usaamah Rahim, who was fatally shot after waving a military knife at law enforcement officers, was originally plotting to behead Pamela Geller, an activist and conservative blogger, law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday.

CNN host Erin Burnett gets Geller on the phone, and during the interview sites the Southern Poverty Law Center suggesting that Pamela Geller is the most visible and flamboyant figurehead of the anti-Muslim movement as they list her group as a ‘hate group’. She emphasizes the ‘hate group’ thing a couple of times, and then then asks Geller if she is stoking the flames of this ‘hate’ and if she relishes being the target of these attacks.

Talk about blaming the victim. Of course Geller responded by asking ‘who self promotes to get killed?’, pointing out the absurdity of the question.

Burnett also suggests in this interview that ‘two people died’ at Geller’s drawing Muhammad competition, as if to suggest they were bystanders who were victims of Geller’s hate or something, never mentioning that it was the terrorists themselves who died. Of course Geller corrected her.

I did not know it was possible for someone to be THAT stupid

For some reason, people keep putting this buffoon on TV

In a discussion on the August 4 edition of CNN Newsroom, Hill attacked Israel’s Iron Dome system, seemingly lamenting the fact that it has limited Israeli deaths, leading to the disproportionate outcome of the war liberals so often mention. He absurdly claimed:

But what the Iron Dome does is it also takes away all of Hamas’s military leverage which is very different than say, 10 years ago or 15 years in other wars like Lebanon, et cetera. As a result, it serves a defensive purpose but de facto serves an offensive purpose. It allows Israel to essentially assault and siege Gaza without any retribution or response on the other side. So again, to some extent, they are not just funding defense, they are funding an offensive war and ultimately an occupation. That for me, is the problem.

In short, it seems Hill objects to U.S. taxpayer funding of Iron Dome because it “serves an offensive purpose” by limiting the ability of the Islamist terror network Hamas to slaughter Israeli citizens in “retribution.” Hill misses the point about military conflicts: the ultimate goal is to win and at the same time limit civilian casualties on your own side.

Hill is a classic example of someone who is educated beyond their hat size. The man has no common sense, no wisdom, he has nothing but a perverse desire for “equality”. In this case it is, apparently, an equality of casualties

Leftist dirtbags outraged, call Clarence Thomas “uppity”!

What has Clarence Thomas done to outrage the Left so? Well, for one thing marrying a White woman is just not “tolerant” or something

Supreme CourtJustice Clarence Thomas can add another insult to the list of things “liberal elites” have attacked him for: his marriage to a white woman.

While on the floor of the Alabama House of Representatives, state Rep. Alvin Holmes, a black Democrat, explained why he so dislikes Clarence Thomas: because “he’s married to a white woman,” reporter Mary Sell of The Times Daily and Decatur Daily tweeted Wednesday.

Holmes denied saying such a thing about Thomas, who he then called an “Uncle Tom”. Man what tolerance huh? But that was just the tip of the Iceberg of liberal Bigotry. Thomas REALLY got the Left into full blown nut job mode when he dared to share some memories of Georgia in the 1960’s.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas spoke at Palm Beach Atlantic University on Tuesday, and Yahoo’s Chris Moody reported that he used the occasion to say the United States is still way too sensitive about racial issues, lamenting how much “more race and difference-conscious” the country is now than in the 1960s. He said race “rarely” came up when he became the first black child to go to a white school in Savannah, Georgia.

Nowadays, however, you can’t escape people being overly sensitive about race and sex, Thomas said, and revealed that he was treated much worse Northern liberals than by anyone in the South.

“The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites. The absolute worst I have ever been treated,” Thomas said. “The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.”

Whoa! Who does Thomas think he is? He is not allowed to challenge the Left’s narrative on race! He cannot tell people what HIS personal experiences were. No! He must parrot the Left’s narrative that the South was RAAAAACIST! And lynchings were an everyday event, and the South, of course, was, and is a land of evil bigots that hate all minorities. Of course, to his credit, Thomas likely gives not the first damn about the Liberal’s version of American history. He experienced what he experienced, and he shared some of that. And for that, he is being raked over the coals by who else, some of the same Liberal elites that demand Blacks walk, talk, and think in lockstep with Leftist ideology, or else!

The guests on CNN on Wednesday excoriated Thomas for his lack of racial consciousness, and particularly his lament that the country is more conscious of racial difference than it was, in his opinion, 50 years ago.

“What’s so remarkable about this statement that it neglects the fact that in the mid-60s, when he was a kid, you could get killed if you were a black person for speaking about race,” CNN Senior Legal AnalystJeffrey Toobin asserted.

Excuse me Mr. Toobin, but Thomas spoke about HIS experience. He did not “neglect” any facts. The problem here is that Toobin expects anyone who talks about the South in the 50’s or 60’s to follow the Leftist script that Toobin obviously follows. By the way, my mother, who grew up in the South, in the 50’s and 60’s has told me things that are similar to what Thomas said. That is not to say everything was peachy during that time, not at all. Those years are a black mark on my beloved Southland, and many awful, inexcusable events did happen, but does that mean positive things cannot be shared? Does that mean we cannot have an open honest dialogue? You know, the kind of dialogues the Left is always calling for?

Columbia University associate professor Marc Lamont Hill took the like-thinking Struggle Session a step further when he asserted that, not only is Thomas racially conscious, but he has actively made life more difficult for fellow African-Americans.

“He’s had a long history of walking through doors and closing them behind him,” Hill said. “He acknowledges no part that affirmative action played in his life but he wants to close the door for others.”

Hill took issue with Thomas’ desire to eliminate race as a social issue, preferring instead to work toward a merit-based society in which racial concerns play no part. He said it was disturbing, particularly for a powerful justice like Thomas, to “make decisions on color blindness.”

“It shouldn’t be to be post-racial but post racist,” he concluded.

Ah yes, Marc Lamont Hill, who is truly race obsessed and himself, in my view, a racist. Hill is disturbed that Thomas wants to see no skin color. Hill is Black, and apparently, he sees his skin color as a tool to use when it suits his needs. How pathetic!

Left-Wing Media Matters for America declares victory over Fox News

Stacy McCain points out some facts about Fox News after Media Matters for Marxists Against America declares that they have discredited Fox

This is analogous to the problem of conservatives making Fox News a singular focus of efforts to combat liberal media bias. As early as February 2009, I described what I called “The Fox Trap”:

Media-wise, the GOP made the mistake of putting all its eggs in one basket. I enjoy Fox News, but it has created a syndrome where Republicans watch Fox all the time and delude themselves into thinking, “Hey, our message is getting out! We’re winning!” Fact: The evening news broadcasts of ABC, NBC and CBS reach a combined audience of about 22 million; the top rated Fox News show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” reaches 4 million viewers. So if the three broadcast networks are viciously biased against Republicans – and they are – then that anti-GOP message is reaching more than 5 times as many TV viewers as Fox.

Last week, I described the problem again with updated numbers:

[D]uring the Bush presidency, the Left created institutions (notably Media Matters) based on the dubious theory that Fox News and other conservative media had too much influence.
That theory cannot be reconciled with the facts:

NBC Nightly News  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9.3 million
ABC World News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8.2 million
CBS Evening News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7.3 million
Fox News (The O’Reilly Factor) . . . . . . . . . . . 3.2 million
MSNBC (Hardball with Chris Matthews) . . . . . 940,000
CNN (Anderson Cooper 360) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 605,000

Fox News is, as it proudly boasts, Number One in Cable News, accounting for 68% of the cable news audience. Add in the major network evening news broadcasts, however, and the total news audience is closer to 30 million, of which Fox’s share is about 11%.
In other words, 89% of news on TV is reliably liberal in its perspective, and the Left’s obsession with Fox News is absurd. Why should Media Matters have an annual budget of $10 million to counteract the influence of a network that gets 11% of the news audience?

We could discuss at length the ramifications of this data, but the point to be made immediately is that Fox News has functioned like a channelizing terrain feature in the informational battlefield. For the defenders of liberal media hegemony, all they had to do was to isolate Fox — identify it as a hostile force in the eyes of other media — and then to target both the network’s messages and its messengers.

Some very good points raised there. Fox has not influenced the rest of the media to change their game. Instead they have just been pigeon-holed as “Right Wing” by the Left, and to many, many Americans, who get their news from NBC, CBS, and ABC, well, Fox has a, shall we say tarnished reputation. In short, we cannot just rely on Fox News folks. Or on talk radio, which also has been smeared mightily by the Left, or on blogs, which have also been smeared and marginalized by “real journalists”. Stacy McCain sums it up very well

Andrew Breitbart understood this tactic, and fought very hard to escape the “Fox Trap,” which is why he delivered one of his biggest scoops on the WeinerGate scandal — the Meagan Broussard story, which confirmed that Weiner was “sexting” with multiple women — directly to ABC News as an exclusive. If conservative messages and messengers can be limited to one media channel, and that channel reaches no more than a minor fraction of the total news audience, liberals win. It’s really that simple

Bingo!

 

 

If Democrats think Obamacare is a PR disaster now, just wait

Wait till those employer provided plans start getting 86ed next year. Then the real caca hits the fan

One of the things you may have noticed in the past couple of weeks is that some liberal pundits are claiming that ObamaCare is essentially a public relations problem: The program is just wonderful, but there have been some P.R. problems with the rollout.

Democrats need to learn that denial is not the name of a river in Egypt:

Democratic leaders claim the bungled launch of Obamacare is just the latest news sensation — a media-stirred tempest that looks in the heat of the moment like it could upend the midterm election, but ends up fizzling well before voters head to the polls.
Some party strategists say they’re in denial.

And that perceived gap between party spin and facts on the ground is fueling worries that the White House and Democratic higher-ups aren’t taking the possible electoral blowback seriously enough or doing enough to shield their candidates. Democratic contenders in the toughest races are distinctly less convinced that Obamacare will fade as an election-year issue — and they can’t afford to just cross their fingers that things get ironed out or that Republicans revert to political hara-kiri.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at a forum hosted by BuzzFeed recently that the rollout won’t “hurt us in 2014,” adding that “we’re proud” of the law. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, in a recent appearance on CNN, went so far as to assert that Obamacare would be “an advantage” for Democratic candidates next year.

“Democrats will run on the Affordable Care Act and win,” she has also told reporters.

The White House, meanwhile, has come across as equally dismissive of Obamacare’s consequences for 2014.

And the worst news of all came out today in a CNN Poll

And speaking of complete meltdown . . .

We are starting to see a broad polling trend for Barack Obama, and it should have the White House worried — but maybe Obama’s fellow Democrats in Congress even more.  The latest CNN poll confirms what the Washington Post/ABC poll first noticed, and what the CBS poll corroborated — Obama’s approval decline involves more than just his performance.  The Americans public is souring on Obama as a person and as a brand, and that spells real trouble for his agenda . . . .

President Obama will not be on the ballot in 2014 or 2016, but the American people will be angry with him, and guess who else? His fellow Democrats, and likely any nominee the Democrats put forward in 2016. They will take the losses, and then the only question is will the GOP use enough common sense to reap the electoral benefits?

 

Imagine that, Alec Baldwin is such a drama queen that even MSNBS does not want him back

Via The Other McCain who notes that Alec’s temper tantrums are too much for even MSNBS

Evil Blogger Lady calls attention to the shocking news — shocking! — that the network suits aren’t eager for a return to Baldwinism:

Alec Baldwin is not welcome back at MSNBC because of his infamous angry behavior, network insiders say — including complaining that “the air at 30 Rock is too dry.”
Sources exclusively tell us that MSNBC chiefs are not exactly falling over themselves to get boisterous Baldwin back in the building. One insider said, “He would only show up at work an hour a week to prep for the show, and when he did turn up, he was in an angry mood, red-faced, and shouting at all the staff. And he said the air at 30 Rock was too dry, it was bad for his voice, he needed a humidifier.” . 

Poor, poor Alec, it is so sad that not everyone understands how entitled he is. 

 

Guess who supported the regulations that forced you to lose your insurance?

Here is a hint, it starts with a D, Donald Douglas has more, via CNN

At Legal Insurrection, “Senate Dems killed (Obamacare) grandfather (fix)“:

They own all of our Obamacare problems, completely. 

CNN reports, Senate Democrats supported rule that led to insurance cancellations:

Senate Democrats voted unanimously three years ago to support the Obamacare rule that is largely responsible for some of the health insurance cancellation letters that are going out.

In September 2010, Senate Republicans brought a resolution to the floor to block implementation of the grandfather rule, warning that it would result in canceled policies and violate President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance if they liked it.

“The District of Columbia is an island surrounded by reality. Only in the District of Columbia could you get away with telling the people if you like what you have you can keep it, and then pass regulations six months later that do just the opposite and figure that people are going to ignore it. But common sense is eventually going to prevail in this town and common sense is going to have to prevail on this piece of legislation as well,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley said at the time. 

“The administration’s own regulations prove this is not the case. Under the grandfathering regulation, according to the White House’s own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans,” the Iowa Republican said.

On a party line vote, Democrats killed the resolution, which could come back to haunt vulnerable Democrats up for re-election this year.

Of course they own every Obamacare issue/problem they refused to listen to any GOP input, and recall not ONE Republican voted for this bill. And each time any Republican has said wait, let’s change this, or let’s take this out, the Democrats have shut them out. America, please remember which party gave you forced Obamacare on you next November! Bloggers, share this with everyone, spread this around, the more people are informed, the more it will hurt the Democrats, and winning the next two elections is the ONLY way we ever get Obamacare repealed and replaced with common sense reform

 

CNN Anchor Calls Out Tea Party Congressman Over Insensitive Joke… The Problem Is, He Doesn’t Exist

CNN Anchor Calls Out Tea Party ‘Congressman’ Over Insensitive Joke, But There’s A Significant Problem – The Blaze

When a Tea Party “congressman” representing Georgia’s “15th district” made a joke at the expense of Germans, CNN’s Christine Amanpour was quick to call him out.

“Maybe if we kept a better eye on them in 1939, WWII wouldn’t have happened,” Rep. “Steve Smith” tweeted after Amanpour announced her interview with the German Foreign Minister.

“Seriously?” Amanpour replied in disgust, retweeting his message.

The only problem is, there is no Rep. Steve Smith nor is there a 15th congressional district in Georgia. Someone apparently created the fake/parody “Tea Party Patriot” account to mess with people like Amanpour, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and others.

Someone give Sean Penn my address please

Penn, the ultimate useful idiot  says that Obama should issue an executive order committing Ted Cruz and the Tea Party.

Actor and activist Sean Penn said Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) and other Tea Partiers in Congress need to be committed by executive order.

Such was said to a laughing Piers Morgan on the CNN program bearing his name

SEAN PENN: It is funny, because what you were talking about before we went to the break, you know, I, I was in Port-au-Prince when the shutdown happened. And, and I said to people — they need, I had stuff that it was demanding on me in Port-au-Prince but I, I had to come home. I said, “Listen I, I have to leave Haiti now because I have to travel to the third world county that I come from.”

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: [Laughs]

You have been, you know, this I think, you know, on the forefront of this gun thing. All of these things, and this is also where you get people who think these things.

I think for let’s, let’s go to the Tea Party influence on Congress on this thing. I think they have, there’s a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think, because these our American brothers and sisters. We shouldn’t be criticizing them, attacking them. We should take their — this is a cry for help.

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You literally commit what …

PENN: I think …

MORGAN: … people like Ted Cruz?

PENN: He’s, he’s my American brother. I want, we think, we should take care of him. He’s in trouble.

MORGAN: [Laughs] Well, actually have him committed.

PENN: Yeah, I thinks it’s a good idea.

MORGAN: [Laughs]

PENN: [Laughs] But then you look at, you know, the, look, there’s a lot of reason to take a shot at me and I’m giving people a lot reason to over the years. But the thing you’re talking about and, and the way people’s perception of political positions are, is a direct reaction to their lack of, of their education which is a huge problem that we’re dealing with in the country. And between an uneducated people and the solipsism of the people like Ted Cruz and their party, it’s a poisonous thing.

Good grief, there is indeed an education problem, and it is retarding the mental health of idiots like Penn. People who refuse to understand that Marxism does not work. But, tell you what Sean why don’t you start by ringing my doorbell. See how that works out for you. Let us see what happens when a Marxist troll confronts a patriot who loves America, OK Sean? But, of course Penn might be stupid, but he ain’t that stupid.

 

CNN: Team Obama warned of website issues prior to launch

Incompetence on a level never before thought possible

Washington (CNN) — The Obama administration was given stark warnings just one month before launch that the federal healthcare site was not ready to go live, according to a confidential report obtained by CNN.

The caution, from the main contractor CGI, warned of a number of open risks and issues for the HealthCare.gov web site even as company executives were testifying publicly that the project had achieved key milestones.

On Capitol Hill on Monday, Medicaid Chief Marilyn Tavenner, whose job it was to oversee the October 1 rollout of the website, said she did not foresee its problems.

“No, we had tested the website and we were comfortable with its performance,” she said. “Now, like I said, we knew all along there would be as with any new website, some individual glitches we would have to work out. But, the volume issue and the creation of account issues was not anticipated and obviously took us by surprise. And did not show up in testing.”

Read documents

But the CGI document, which describes “top risks currently open” and “outstanding issues currently being mitigated” says the testing timeframes are “not adequate to complete full functional, system, and integration testing activities” and lists the impact of the problems as “significant.”

Another element is listed as ” not enough time in schedule to conduct adequate performance testing” and given the highest priority.

 

Sometimes what the media does not tell you, can be more informative than what they do tell you

I was at work today, and CNN was on one of the TVs at the bar, we put two on sports, one on the news, and I always used to put Fox on, but one of my bosses prefers CNN, so, well…. Anyway, when the news that a teachers body had been found in some woods near Danvers High School broke, I watched to see what had happened. After a few minutes, I noted to one of the costumers that the teacher had likely been stabbed, maybe beaten, or strangled to death. They asked me how I knew, since the news had not reported the likely cause of the teacher’s demise. Not knowing the political bent of this gentleman, I avoided saying why I reached such a conclusion, which is if the teacher had been shot the media would be focused solely on what kind of gun, was there a high capacity magazine involved, and could it have been an AR-15, and did stand your ground laws cause this tragedy. Instead I just said it was a gut feeling. A gut feeling that a fellow blogger, some guy named McCain shares it seems

 

Saw this headline at Memeorandum:

14-year-old student held without bail
in slaying of Danvers High teacher

The story doesn’t say how the teacher was killed, but the fact that MSNBC wasn’t running a gun-control telethon was a clue that she probably wasn’t shot to death. 

Like the headline says, you can learn a lot fro the media, if you pay attention to what they do not say.

 

CNN: White House could not decide what they wanted from healthcare site

Buffoons!

Buffoonery, or is it deliberate? I cannot put my mind on why they would do this deliberately, there seems to be nothing politically advantageous in that. Frankly, the politically expedient action would be to delay this a year, the voters would not feel the effects in 2014, and that would help Democrats in the November elections. Of course, I am guessing that Team Obama wants to get as many enrolled ASAP! Get the people dependent now, which, of course has been the goal all along. If my gut is right, and this is just incompetence, then this is idiocy on an unprecedented level. And the implosion of Obama Care might come sooner than anyone expected. What is it I keep saying about this administration? Expect the unexpected to be a whole lot worse than anyone expected.
