Jane Fonda is out promoting her recurring role on HBO´s The Newsroom, the pay giant´s weekly progressive rant on the news of (yester)day. Fonda, who has a cameo playing Nancy Reagan in the new political drama Lee Daniels´ The Butler, told an online chat audience who she hopes will be paying close attention to the show´s second season: When asked who she thinks would benefit from watching the Aaron Sorkin drama, which is currently in its second season, Fonda offered the following names: Bill O´Reilly, Michael Savage. Glenn Beck, the tea partiers, Sarah Palin. "Those are the people I wish

CROSSVILLE — I am puzzled by President Obama’s message to the nation given in the press briefing room following the trial in which George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin. Despite the fact that multiple investigations were unable to find any evidence of racism in the incident (including local law enforcement, state prosecutor, FBI and the jury), Obama adroitly turned the incident between two males, one black and the other Hispanic, into a racial incident while claiming he “accepted” the jury’s findings.

Speaking to State Department personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, Brazil, on Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry said that "this little thing called the Internet ... makes it much harder to govern." He also said that "ever since the end of the Cold War, forces have been unleashed that were tamped down for centuries by dictators." "I’m a student of history, and I love to go back and read a particularly great book like [Henry] Kissinger’s book about diplomacy where you think about the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the balance of power and how difficult it was for countries



Report: Zero Attendees at Organizing

On Tuesday, Organizing for Action (OFA) organized an event in Washington, D.C. to promote President Barack Obama´s climate change agenda. Reportedly, no one showed up. OFA is Obama´s policy advocacy group that was formerly his 2012 reelection campaign. The event was part of the group´s "Action August" activities that are seeking to promote policies Obama has indicated he will push for in his second term. OFA kicked off its "Action August" with a pro-Obamacare rally in Virginia that did a tad better--one person showed up to that rally. The invitation to the Washington, D.C. rally has also been removed from

ObamaCare To Punish
The Good Samaritan

Health Reform: No good deed will go unpunished under ObamaCare. If a charitable hospital treats a homeless person who staggers into the emergency room without insurance, it may be punished with taxes and fines. One of the "unintended" consequences of the misnamed Affordable Care Act was to place charitable tax-exempt hospitals in a medical Catch-22: To maintain their tax-exempt status they´re required to treat a minimum number of patients who can´t pay, yet ObamaCare requires everyone to have health coverage. Right now, about 60% of the 6,000 or so hospitals in the U.S. are tax-exempt nonprofits, while 25% are government-owned. The rest

Harry Reid Plays Race Card
To Excuse Obama´s Failures

Mudslinging: Sen. Harry Reid asks if anti-Obama fervor is "based on substance and not the fact that he´s an African-American." It´s not the color of his skin, Senator, but the content of his policies. Patriotism may or may not be the last refuge of a scoundrel, but race is the Democrats´ constant refuge from Barack Obama´s failures. According to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., interviewed last week by KNPR in Las Vegas, Republicans are obviously "doing everything they can to make him fail." And Reid says, "I hope that´s based on substance and not the fact that he´s African-American." Reid can rest

White House´s ObamaCare
Delay Confirms Law Is A Mess

ObamaCare: Confirming again that its reform is a disaster, the White House has stopped yet another provision of the law before it can take effect. This time it´s caps placed on patients´ out-of-pocket expenses. The delay was authorized in February, but had gone unnoticed, the New York Times reported Tuesday, because it "was obscured in a maze of legal and bureaucratic language that went largely unnoticed" on the Labor Department´s website. Department officials confirmed its existence only when asked about it. So much for open government. The caps, which were supposed to be a "consumer protection" provision of ObamaCare, limit the amount patients

It´s only been three days, but President Obama has quickly settled into the vacation diet on Martha´s Vineyard. But don´t tell the first lady. During a rainy day on Tuesday, he traveled to Nancy´s in scenic Oak Bluffs for a fried lunch. According to the pool report: "POTUS´s food order at Nancy´s was fried shrimp, fried oysters, onion rings and french fries." Obviously not on the lunch trip was first lady Michelle Obama, the first family´s fitness buff. Obama showed up at Nancy´s in a blue fleece, a Chicago White Sox cap and Nike sneakers.

This week Elise Jordan, wife of famed journalist Michael Hastings, who recently died under suspicious circumstances, corroborated this reporter´s sources that CIA Director, John Brennan was Hastings next exposé project (CNN clip). Last month a source provided San Diego 6 News with an alarming email hacked from super secret CIA contractor Stratfor’s President Fred Burton. The email (link here) was posted on WikiLeaks and alleged that then Obama counter-terrorism Czar Brennan, was in charge of the government´s continued crackdown or witch-hunt on investigative journalists.

In the wake of a rodeo clown’s anti-Obama skit this weekend, the Missouri State Fair is forcing all clowns to undergo sensitivity training. The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify the decision to ban the clown in question who wore an Obama mask as the rodeo announcer asked if the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull. The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to local media reports. But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to

Even by the standards of Washington, this is one sick, twisted and deceitful deal. Quite possibly, it is a whole new low, even for the federal government. Had we innocent, taxpaying citizens not long ago lost our capacity to be outraged by the disgraceful manner in which this place operates, we would already be in all-out political revolt. Against President Obama. Against Democrats in Congress. And, especially, Republicans. Literally, revolutionary wars have been fought over less. Last week, while many Americans spent hard-saved money on long-overdue vacations, the snakes and weasels inside the federal bureaucracy schemed until they hatched an

NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner‘s former sexting partner Sydney Leathers will continue her media tour tonight with a first appearance on Fox News, courtesy of Hannity. In the interview with Sean Hannity, Leathers will likely react to Weiner’s controversial “BuzzFeed Brews” chat from Monday evening as well as the recent, controversial developments in her post-sexting-with-Weiner life. Leathers has been teasing the interview for more than 24 hours now, tweeting Monday morning: Sydney Leathers @sydneyelainexo Never in my life did I expect to say these words, but I am REALLY excited to be in-studio with @seanhannity tomorrow. 9:04 AM - 12

Over the weekend, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is “for big government and trying to go along to get along.” She added that Christie has “got a schtick going there where he’s got a YouTube videographer following him around, kind of these set-up situations sometimes so he can be seen as perhaps a little bit avant-garde and going rogue on things.” Christie said nothing in return. He should. Here’s why.Taking on Palin is good politics for Christie or Jeb Bush or anyone else who is planning to run as a quasi-establishment candidate for president in

The father of one of three Florida teens charged in a vicious school bus attack said his son is “sorry” for taking part in the July beating that made national headlines. As the trio headed to court on Tuesday, Julian McKnight said his son Julian, 15, has also suffered in the aftermath of the July 9 attack on a Pinellas County school bus after it left Lealman Intermediate School in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport. “All I can say is that he had his consequences already, you know?” McKnight said. “This is life.

Despite all the recent furor over a Missouri rodeo clown’s sporting an Obama costume, it turns out that President Obama isn’t the only one who’s been involved with rodeo clowns. As Charlie Spiering points out over at the Washington Examiner, this is hardly the first time rodeo clowns have parodied a president – he quotes a 1994 Philadelphia Inquirer article that tells of the destruction of a George H. W. Bush dummy at a rodeo in Woodstown, N.J. The Missouri State Fair isn’t the first time that President Obama has been parodied in a rodeo, either. In 2011, the Morgan County

Not a single person showed up at the Georgetown waterfront Tuesday for a climate change agenda event put on by Organizing for Action, the shadowy nonprofit advocacy group born out of President Obama’s 2012 campaign, the NRCC wrote in its blog. The event page for the “Climate Change Day of Action Rally” disappeared after rainy weather appeared to drive away whatever people planned to attend. The embarrassing showing follows the news that only one volunteer stayed for an OFA Obamacare event in Centreville, Va., last week to work the phones:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released its “State of the Climate in 2012” report, which states that “worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record.” But the report “fails to mention [2012] was one of the coolest of the decade, and thus confirms the cooling trend,” according to an analysis by climate blogger Pierre Gosselin. “To no one’s surprise, the report gives the reader the impression that warming is galloping ahead out of control,” writes Gosselin. “But their data shows just the opposite.” Although the NOAA report noted that in 2012, “the Arctic continues to warm” with “sea ice

Ask a Staten Islander who lost his home in Hurricane Sandy about forecasting an entire hurricane season and he might look at you unblinkingly and say, “It only takes one.” Which is why the “very active” second half of the 2013 hurricane season predicted by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA) is so scary. Based on the current and expected conditions, combined with model forecasts, the agency estimate a 70 percent probability for each of the following: 13 to 19 named storms, six to nine hurricanes (with winds exceeding 74 mph), and three to five major hurricanes (with winds exceeding

This morning Senator Rubio again made the argument that I mentioned the other day, that Congress needs to pass an amnesty to prevent President Obama from just amnestying all the illegals administratively without giving any enforcement in return. As he told a Florida radio station: I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen. Now, we won’t get an E-Verify, we won’t get any

WASHINGTON – U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz plans to meet with Nevada’s governor on Tuesday to discuss an escalating dispute between the state and the federal government over where to dump hundreds of canisters of radioactive waste, FoxNews.com has learned. Tensions have risen in recent weeks over who should be forced to keep the nuclear material. The federal government says Nevada signed off on a series of memos agreeing to take it, but Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says those talks never happened -- and says his state shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden of burying toxic waste in its backyard.

The Justice Department, along with the attorneys general of six states and the District of Columbia, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday seeking to block the proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways. Dealing an unexpected blow to a yearlong effort to create the world’s biggest airline, the Justice Department said the merger between the two airlines would substantially reduce competition, increase air fares and cut service. After approving a series of mergers between the nation’s airlines in recent years, the Justice Department’s decision came as a surprise to both carriers, who had expressed confidence the deal would go through

Nakoula was recently released from prison after a parole violation. Nakoula told CNN that he believes the administration was “irresponsible” when they blamed the attack on a YouTube trailer. Asked by Tapper if the Obama administration put him in danger by blaming the Benghazi attack on him, Nakoula said that he had no comment. The filmmaker added that
