THE ABSURDITY OF THE LIE-RS STORY

How absurd is the absolute nonsense spouted by current IRS Commissioner john koskinen?  Read the following excerpt from David Martosko\’s article for the London Daily Mail (where I am getting far better coverage than is generally available in US media) and see for yourself.  (In reading it, please note that I have left in links to the Daily Mail\’s additional stories, which...

COVERAGE OF THE LIE-RS SCANDAL: JOE SCARBOROUGH SAYS IT STRAIGHT

Maybe it was the fact that, uncharacteristically, there were as many Republicans on Morning Joe today as there were Democrats.  But host Joe Scarborough had this to say about how coverage of the IRS scandal has, at least until now, been downplayed or buried altogether by mainstream media: “CBS,ABC, NBC, the Washington Post, The New York Times, you can put themall out there. ...

OBAMACARNAGE: REALITY SETS IN

Sarah Kliff, formerly of the Washington Post and currently of Vox.com (Ezra Klein\’s new internet baby) has, for years, championed ObamaCare. But now she allows as there might be a bit of a problem with the state exchanges.  Actually, maybe a huge one. Excerpted from Ms. Kliff\’s latest blog: Morethan a dozen states decided to build new health...

THE HOBBY LOBBY RULING

This week, the US Supreme Court is likely to rule on Hobby Lobby\’s lawsuit, which contends that the company – privately owned by the devoutly Christian Green family – should be exempted from ObamaCare because its requirement that abortion-inducing drugs be available to policyholders is against the family\’s religious beliefs. I am guessing – not predicting, I...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from “Morning Joe” regular Mark Halperin – hardly a fan of the Republican right – who was honest enough to say this about the IRS\’s beyond-BS claim to have lost the emails of lois “liar” lerner and six other IRS people currently under investigation: “Becausewhen any government agency, particularly one as powerful as...

“NOT TRULY WELL OFF”

I\’m not looking to pick on Hillary Clinton.  I mean that honestly.  But she is tossing softballs, one after another at us, that just beg to be hit out of the park. Did you know that, this week, Ms. Clinton told (mostly Hillary-sympathetic) Ed Pilkington of London\’s Guardian newspaper that she, and hubby Bubba – with an estimated net worth of between $50 and...

MILITANTS?

Have you noticed how many mainstream news media are referring to the ISIS terrorists – a breakaway faction of al qaeda – as “militants” instead of “terrorists”? No, CNN.  No, New York Times.  No, all the others who are participating in this revisionism. ISIS is a terrorist group.  A TERRORIST GROUP. Just because President Obama lied to us about...

HILLARY CLINTON\’S BENGHAZI POLITICAL CALCULUS

Did Hillary Clinton “bristle” over President Obama\’s claim that the Benghazi massacre was not a terrorist attack, but a spontaneous reaction to an obscure video tape…..and then go along with the lie because it would enhance her prospects for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination? According to Edward Klein\’s new book, Blood Feud, which chronicles the contentious...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes to us from former First Lady, US Senator, Secretary of State and, it is assumed, current Presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton: “Ihave been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable witha tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.  Ihave also been informed that she has in the past made falseaccusations about persons...

WHO LOST IRAQ?

Pete Hegseth is not your ordinary soldier.  He is a graduate of Princeton University, who then served both at Guantanamo and in Iraq. As the saying goes, these experiences have taught him a little about a little. Mr. Hegseth, who Currently is the CEO of Concerned Veterans For America, has a point of view on how we have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq – and...

HILLARY: TIME TO HIBERNATE?

To hibernate is to go into a state of inactivity. That is hardly a term I would normally associate with Hillary Clinton.  But given what has happened in the days since her whirlwind media blitz to publicize “Hard Choices”, the new book with her name on it (do you really think she actually wrote this herself?) it seems to be a pretty logical strategy. The reviews...

THE PUBLIC WEIGHS IN ON OBAMA\’S IMMIGRATION “POLICY”

This chart should be instructive for anyone who tries to sell you on the idea that it\’s only those mouth-breathing right wingers who are against President Obama\’s handling of the immigration issue:  In reading those data, please be aware that they were gathered June 5 – 8 – which is before the news of massive numbers of illegal minors shuttling through Mexico...

Would you like to see the video of  Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) dismantling John Koskinen the smug, smirking, utterly obnoxious IRS commissioner, when Koskinen lied to Brady – and all the rest of us as well – about the supposedly “lost” emails….which happened to be the emails of pretty much everyone being investigated at the IRS?

PRESIDENT OBAMA & TWO SOLDIERS

One month before, on March...

THE FAITH AND FREEDOM COALITION DISGRACE

The Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative, faith-based organization, is currently running a three day “Road To Majority event in Washington DC. I don\’t know how you feel about this organization\’s aims.  But if its idea of being clever is to put a likeness of President Barack Obama in men\’s room urinals adjacent to the conference...
