Geraldo Enters Into Shoutfest With
Fox & Friends Hosts Over Integrity Of
‘American Napoleon’ David Petraeus

Mediaite, by Alex Alvarez

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 11/16/2012 9:35:33

Geraldo Rivera entered into a heated argument with the hosts of Fox & Friends Friday morning over the topic of what, exactly, happened in Benghazi and Petraeus’ knowledge of it. “It is inconceivable to me,” shared Rivera, “that this honorable warrior, this American Napoleon, this best general since Dwight Eisenhower, would ever dishonor his service because he was afraid the FBI was going to embarrass him with this extramarital affair. I think that — hold it, I just want to say this —

I saw this. Geraldo´s love-fest with protecting Obama should earn him a suspension or at best a firing from Fox. He is pandering to the corrupt administration. Obama lied - pure and simple. We now also know he cooked the unemployment numbers to get reelected.

If there´s one man who knows about honor and integrity it´s Jerry Rivera. Why does he have a job at FOX? Is he a diversity hire or what.

If the producers of Fox & Friends think this is an example of civil discourse of the situation, fair & balanced, then they´re deluding themselves. It´s offputting. Geraldo is an arrogant, know-nothing loudmouth.

Geraldo is just a confused, conflicted, bad booty wannabe. (filter got what I really wanted to say)

He actually said on his radio show (I heard it myself) that he endorsed the Romney/Ryan ticket because he felt like the country is in a fiscal crisis and needed their expertise but he was going to vote for Obama because of immigration.

Disclaimer, the only reason I was listening is because he comes on before Rush and he said it at 11:59 on Monday before the election.

Geraldo understands that he, himself is no paragon of virtue. If Petraeus dishonored his wife and family, why would he be so concerned about his other commitments? If you are untrue to your vows, what good are your other vows? Clinton proved that for us.

I´ve noticed, recently, on tv programs where a sympathetic character commits adultery, fraud, lies and cheats and is proclaimed by the other characters a good and decent person. Passing over just a few insignificant "hiccups"in morality and character. Once again, tv/movies are paving the way for degeneracy. He lied and cheated on his wife, kids, family, friends and country. NOT a good man.

I turn the TV on mute when Geraldo shows up. He is an ignoramus, and an opinionated one at that. I feel the same way about Beckel. I have stopped watching The Five because Beckel is so outrageous. Other than Bret Baier and Lou Dobbs the rest of the shows are disappointing.

Number of Obamacare sign-ups
is greatly inflated
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/7/2014 8:33:17     Post Reply
Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." The number is a little larger now, since the figures are a few weeks old. But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration´s claims are grossly

French hydrangea thieves

Some flower lovers prefer hydrangea of the mophead or lacecap variety, others the snowball, oakleaf, or paniculata, but others simply prefer ripping off the delicate heads of any of the above and smoking them as “cheap weed”, French police have claimed. Gendarmes in northern France are on the trail of a “gang des hortensias” (hydrangea gang) they believe has made off with the popular ornamental flowers from dozens of gardens to smoke them as a cheap, legal alternative to cannabis. Last month, residents of the small village of Hucqueliers in the Pas-de-Calais area were dismayed to discover their prize hydrangea

Obamacare isn’t a train wreck, it’s a cancer

When a locomotive crashes, it stops. Obamacare, on the other hand, just keeps on going like a cancer that’s ignored, perpetuating itself and destroying everything in its path. While we thought the health care act was a train wreck, it’s more like cancer. Discovering you’ve got a problem should be the first step on the road to recovery. You’re supposed to go in and confront it like you would if you found a tumor. You wouldn’t just leave it there, wondering what it was up to, hoping it would go away on its own. No, you’d enlist some help and take

A Crappy Job on the U.S.
Debt, Deficit, and Growth

Picture your basement. Now picture your basement with a huge pipe spewing raw sewage. You call a plumber and he dawdles before partially plugging the pipe. The sludge rises a tad more slowly, but your basement quickly fills. "Here´s the bill," the plumber says. "My job is done." This is the crappy way in which the White House and Congress are handling the U.S. debt, deficit, and economic growth. In this metaphor, the sewage mounting in the basement is the debt, the amount owed to U.S. creditors plus interest paid on those bills. It is $17.3 trillion. The sewage pouring out of a

Two titans of comedy made news this week for their candid comments about what they consider funny and why they choose certain people or issues for their fodder. In an interview with “BuzzFeed Brews” which aired Tuesday on “CBS This Morning,” Jerry Seinfeld was asked why his latest project “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” didn’t feature more comics of color. The interviewer added, “I have noted the guests are mostly white males.” Seinfeld’s response? “This really pisses me off.” He continued, “People think it’s the census or something.

George Will: IRS Scandal as Big

Appearing on Fox News Channel’s Special Report on Wednesday, conservative columnist George Will said the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Services’ targeting of conservative groups is as serious as Watergate or Iran-Contra. The distinction between those scandals and the one involving the IRS, he said, was that the press covered those earlier controversies heavily while they have largely dismissed the latest. Will began by recalling that, immediately after former IRS official Lois Lerner preemptively apologized for targeting conservative groups, President Barack Obama called the scandal “outrageous.” Lerner would go on to resign and refuse to testify before Congress about the details

A Brutal Translation of
the ´Disincentive to Work´
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/6/2014 9:20:38     Post Reply
The biggest "disincentive for people to work" is not Obamacare. It´s the lack of jobs in a fast-changing, post-industrial economy leaving millions of Americans behind. These people need a health insurance system that follows them from job to grinding job – that gives them flexibility to seek re-training and, for a lucky few, a new career path geared to the high-tech economy. The Affordability Care Act is far from perfect. It needs to evolve with bipartisan thinking. But it´s at least a step toward recognizing that the employee-based insurance system built for the 20th century is inadequate for this one. Rather than an

The Obama administration’s Treasury Department and former IRS official Lois Lerner conspired to draft new 501(c)(4) regulations to restrict the activity of conservative groups in a way that would not be disclosed publicly, according to the House Committee on Ways and Means. The Treasury Department and Lerner started devising the new rules “off-plan,” meaning that their plans would not be published on the public schedule. They planned the new rules in 2012, while the IRS targeting of conservative groups was in full swing, and not after the scandal broke in order to clarify regulations as the administration has suggested.

And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security.

The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes.

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

Allman, son of Cher and her second husband rock musician Greg Allman, spoke to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday about his former drug use, which began at a young age. "I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.

One of the best arguments for health-insurance reform is that our traditional employer-based system often locked people into jobs they wanted to leave but couldn´t because they feared they wouldn´t be able to get affordable coverage elsewhere. This worry was pronounced for people with pre-existing conditions but not limited to them. Consider families with young children in which one of the parents would like to get out of the formal labor market for a while to take care of the kids. In the old system, the choices of such couples were constrained if only one of the two received employer-provided family
