In the 2012 election, the mainstream
media's stranglehold on the political
narrative has finally been broken

Telegraph (UK), by Dan Hodges

Yesterday Mitt Romney pulled level in Ohio. “A late surge by Mitt Romney has made the contest between him and President Obama to win Ohio too close to call”, screamed Fox News. “Presidential Poll sees dead heat in Ohio”, announced the rather more measured UPI wire story. “Romney, Obama Tied in New Ohio poll”, said the Wall Street Journal, with characteristic hyperbole. Somewhat surprised at this dramatic turn of events, I immediately logged on to the internet to see what lay behind the reversal of fortune in the Buckeye state. And promptly found it was rubbish.

Comments:
Very interesting and more than a little worrisome. Do both sides want to mislead us?

Oh, I see...Fox news "screams," WSJ engages in "hyperbole" but UPI is "more measured"...

The brits have been enamored of hussein obama's negritude, since day one.
The reporter seems to be engaged in peculiar thinking.
And because the pollsters are over counting democrats, the numbers are skewed towards obama.

Ah, no it hasn't. The fifth column, formerly known as the fourth estate, is firmly, stridently attached to the Obama kneepads.

Apparently, pollsters are always telling the absolute truth and it was only the Media that tried to skew it. So if Gallup reports O47 R44 an O win is inevitable and the fact that the papers report a narrowing gap is irrelevant.

The guys point seems to be "I can read Gallups headline without reading the NYT's headline therfore I'm too smart to be a moron".

Never seems to occur to this loon that "truth" requires more than a 15 second search on the internet.

Battleground has Romney up 5. Gallup 4-5. Both have O at 47% and have had forever.

This explains why Obama is such an a-hole the last few weeks, why Romney is not calling O out on Benghazi, and why he still supports Murdoch. I'll be sleeping well, folks.

I think the wall crumbled with Rathergate, when a left-wing media attempt to bring down a GOP President resulted in right-wing bloggers destroying the career of a left-wing journalist. Yes, we have do now have access to raw data and have the ability to interpret the data for ourselves. But that doesn't mean every interpretation will be correct. A left-wing Blairite at a British paper can still twist the data into a misleading blog. Just because we are now free to ignore the Alphabet Networks doesn't mean we're free from leftoid propaganda.

He says Obama is going to win and the facts are obvious. And yes the article is a mess.

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

State elections officials in North Carolina are investigating hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud after identifying thousands of registered voters with personal information matching those of voters who voted in other states in 2012. Elections Director Kim Strach told state lawmakers at an oversight hearing Wednesday that her staff has identified 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to have cast ballots in two states during the 2012 presidential election.

News flash: Secular businesses
don’t much care about religious
businesspeople’s religious rights claims!
Washington Post, by Eugene Volokh    Original Article
Posted By: lasvegaslou- 2/7/2014 8:02:19 AM     Post Reply
A Slate article by David Gans makes much of the fact that business groups haven’t stood up to support Hobby Lobby’s religious exemption claims: This spring, the Supreme Court will decide — for the first time in our nation’s history — whether secular, for-profit corporations are entitled to invoke the constitutional guarantee of the free exercise of religion. The stakes are huge, as the justices will determine whether business corporations can claim a religious exemption from federal laws that protect the rights of their employees.

Fact Checking the 2014 State
of the Union address
Washington Post, by Glenn Kessler    Original Article
Posted By: lasvegaslou- 1/29/2014 7:00:01 AM     Post Reply
A State of the Union address is often difficult to fact-check, no matter who is president. The speech is a product of many hands and is carefully vetted, so major errors of fact are relatively rare. But State of the Union addresses often are very political speeches, an argument for the president’s policies, so context is sometimes missing. Here is a guide through some of President Obama’s more fact-challenged claims, in the order in which he made them. At the end, we also examine one fishy fact in the Republican response.

The first 3D printed organ -- a liver --
is expected in 2014
Computer World, by Lucas Mearian    Original Article

Approximately 18 people die every day waiting for an organ transplant. But that may change someday sooner than you think -- thanks to 3D printing. Advances in the 3D printing of human tissue have moved fast enough that San Diego-based bio-printing company Organovo now expects to unveil the world´s first printed organ -- a human liver -- next year. Like other forms of 3D printing, bio-printing lays down layer after layer of material -- in this case, live cells -- to form a solid physical entity -- in this case, human tissue.

How one inspector general is fighting

After 12 years of war, you would think the war planners and defense contractors have the situation in Afghanistan well in hand. And they do, if the goal is wasteful spending on such a colossal scale that it makes Healthcare.gov look like Amazon.com. (Snip) And while the Democrats continue running interference for their standard-bearer, Republicans in Congress steadfastly refuse to show spine in overseeing the president for fear that they accidentally end the war. No one wants that — things are going so well!

A team of cardiovascular scientists has announced it will be able to 3D print a whole heart from the recipients´ own cells within a decade. "America put a man on the Moon in less than a decade. I said a full decade to provide some wiggle room," Stuart K Williams told Wired.co.uk. (Snip) Williams says he and his team of more than 20 have already bioengineered a coronary artery and printed the smallest blood vessels in the heart used in microcirculation.

Obama to free hundreds of drug
felons under clemency rules
designed to un-do mandatory
sentences from ´War on Drugs´ era

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

   

 



 
Why Does Nation Tolerate A
Habitual Liar As President?

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
