Live on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel show on Tuesday night, Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison ripped into Hannity for airing a video of President Barack Obama’s remarks on the sequester to the tune of the “Carmina Burana” overture “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff. HANNITY: Congressman, welcome back, sir. ELLISON: You bet. HANNITY: I guess that’s what we can describe as staying on message, something the Democratic Party I would argue is very good at. ELLISON: You’re pretty good at it, too. HANNITY: Thank you.
How can a Muslim or Communist swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic when both have agendas to destroy our Constiutuion and laws?
Poster 4: Sean believes everyone tends to gravitate to others of like philosophy and quickly begin to forget that there is not only opposition to their views, but stupid loyal, Fanatical opposition. He has people like Ellison on to remind us what we are up against.
Ultimately, thought this might be unintentional, he is showing us we will not win this argument with words, alone. Like with many psychotic individuals, physical intervention may be necessary.
Hannaty has these types of people on for ratings, he is only an entertainer, and a sounding board for the sheeple to blow off steam, but nothing never comes from his dialogs. He is a firm supporter of john roberts, a good friend of Karl Rove (his words not mine) and supports a whole host of other Rino repubs including Mcshame. I have stopped listening to him, and his show along time ago due to his "arranged" fights between conservatives and liberals in which the debated message is lost in the on air screaming matches. just saying
I think he had him on because Ellison was behind a move to remove the "debt clock" from Congress. It was in the news yesterday. Ellison actually passed up an opportunity to make himself appear reasonable. Instead, he just cemented conservatives´ views that he is a radical Muslim-sympathizer along the lines of Cynthia McKinney.
#8 has it right. Pretty Boy Hannity is an entertainer, period. I might add, a rather low IQ entertainer at that. I stopped watching him 2 yrs ago when we got rid of TV. I doubt he has had a new idea since then.

#8 nails it.
I suggest having a Sean Hannity Drinking Game...every time he mentions he once washed dishes for a living - one drink, that he worked in construction - 2 drinks, Karl Rove "the Architect" - 3 drinks, etc...wouldn´t take long and you would be drunk.
I am very tired of the screaming match he has with so called guests. I´m pretty well sick of him.
#27, I so agree. Sean is so out of ideas for that show. His wife needs to help him out by telling him his constant references to his "humble" background comes off just as phony as when politicians do it.
#27...Ha! I dont much care for Hannity, for the same reason I dont like several of the hosts. They push their ideology so hard the guests cant speak. Often they will ask and reask a question till they get the answer they want. If all else fails, Hannity responds to an answer with a quiet, disgusted sounding "yeah". I could not do what they do, and I admire them for that. Still, they do get old. Rush and Levin are tops in my book. I´ve given up on Medved, Hannity, O´Reilly and Reagan. I couldn´t get G. Gordon after I moved a few years back, but was tiring of him, too.
The pre-interview video that Hannity put together for this segment was very interesting. It was clips of Obama giving his sequester stump speech that he travels with. He uses the exact same phrases with the exact same timing, emphasis and intonation. To prove the point, they even matched up two renditions of phrases that were identical. He´s positively robotic in his performance. We know he can turn his smile on and off like a light switch. He can apparently do the same with a speech. All very mechanical but almost life-like.
Hannity had this clown on his show for the same reason he paired up with Alan Colmes - to look comparatively intelligent and competent. The first day of Sean´s nationally syndicated radio show was Monday 10 September 2001. IIRC there was a big big story in the news the very next day, and when radio stations resumed their regular broadcast programming, Sean just happened to be in the right place at the right time. People would have tuned in to 3 hours of a barking dog if it seemed to be commenting on the World Trade Center´s collapse. Luckiest media guy since Dan Rather was the man who had CBS´ Texas beat on 22 November 1963.
ellison´s constituency is around Lake of the Isles - all VERY wealthy limousine liberals and St Louis Park - many SECULAR jews.. one of the most anti-American districts in the state.. with LOTS of money... this is a sinecure for him...
What #8 said. Also, Hannity was the first among the Talk Show clowns to declare his support for amnesty for 11-20 million illegal guests, which amounts to an unequivocal demographic surrender. Remember that next time you´re listening to him call himself a "conservative" with the nerf toy in his hands.
Rush Limbaugh´s radio tirades will have a new home on Los Angeles airwaves next year. KFI-AM (640) is losing the conservative host´s three-hour show, long a fixture on the station, to KTLK-AM (1150), which owner Clear Channel is hoping to pump up as an outlet exclusively dedicated to right-leaning chatter. The company, which also owns KFI, will use Limbaugh´s audience to anchor the new lineup for KTLK, which is being dubbed "The Patriot" and will also feature national shows by Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
The current daytime star—and future face of Yahoo News—is taking flak for running an alarmist segment about an HPV vaccine on her talk show. Why Katie’s under fire. Can you trust Katie Couric? For a woman who has hosted news programs on three major television networks, received multiple awards for her reporting, and earned the title “America’s Sweetheart” back in her Today show glory, merely raising the question could be hugely damaging to her career—even more so now as she prepares to take on a high-profile role as the new global anchor of Yahoo News.
The White House on Thursday admitted fabricating an earlier claim that President Obama had never met his Kenyan uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama. Approximately 3 years ago, as Uncle Omar was fighting deportation following a DUI charge, the White House asserted to The Boston Globe without any apparent qualification that Onyango Obama “has never met his famous nephew.” That statement was untrue. Uncle Omar testified at an immigration hearing earlier this week that the younger Obama had briefly lived with him for several weeks in the 1970s.
The White House acknowledged Thursday that President Obama lived with his uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while he was a student at Harvard Law School -- after previously saying there was no record of the two having met. "The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement. "After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him
According to the New York Daily News’ Confidential blog, Barbara Walters wanted to name NSA leaker Edward Snowden as her most fascinating person of the year, but was overruled by ABC network executives. Walters is reportedly especially intrigued by Snowden, and believes he will be chosen as TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year (he trailed Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and twerking minister Miley Cyrus in the readers’ poll). Snowden, who declined to sit for an interview with Walters, remains on the list, but is no longer at the top spot.
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
The week of Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, I always hope for encouraging news. Apocalyptic headlines and ghoulish scenarios didn´t vanish, but reasons for hope lurked amid the gloom. On Nov. 25, this paper carried Frank Messmann´s letter, "Pilgrim critic´s hyperbole isn´t supported by facts," with supporting evidence of nuclear power´s excellent safety record and assertions that critics rely on exaggeration. Flogging Pilgrim as another Fukushima waiting to happen skirts the fact that the disaster in Japan in 2011 was caused by a major earthquake in a seismically active region. The accompanying 40-foot tsunami killed tens of thousands of people; the radiation nobody. The
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
