60 Minutes: Kroft, Clinton and
the death of public integrity

Washington Times, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2013 11:17:03 AM

WASHINGTON, DC — On Sunday evening, January 27, Steve Kroft embarrassed himself, CBS, 60 Minutes, and the American media in general with an historically sycophantic interview of President Barack Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. When Obama and Clinton were offstage, Kroft did refer to the Benghazi fiasco as “the biggest diplomatic disaster of this administration,” but the questions he asked them on camera were prefaced with comments like, “You had a very long day [at the hearings]. Also, how is your health?” Kroft introduced other questions with remarks like,

Comments:
I´m glad Mr. Cashill is on our side. He´s always correct in his writings.

Clinton lied. He lied to a federal grand jury!! He, the chief executive officer of the federal government, the man who appoints judges, lied to a grand jury... and got nothing. This is the MOST amazing fact in presidential history. And the most powerful example of what a corrupt and compacent media can do.

Obama is the greatest example of what a corrupt and complacent media can do.

We don´ have any idea of the depth of corruption in this administration. Multiply what you think exists by at least 100.

Twenty-one years ago, when the Clintons first surfaced on the national stage, 60 Minutes was a serious program,

Clinton looked this country in the eye and he said "yes I smoked pot, but I didn´t inhale"

In that statement he said two things: "I´m going to lie to you, and I expect you to go long with it."

I knew that something was wrong with our country when we failed to dismiss this man out of hand. It took me a few months, but I left the Democrat party because of the fact that they refused to reject Bill Clinton. I did the right thing. I am a better man than Bill Clinton. I´ve watched good, dignified people that I respect just shred themselves on behalf of this man, a man who isn´t half as good as they are.

I still don´t understand this. There were and probably are 500 Democrats in the U.S. that could make fine effective Presidents who would serve this country well.

Who expected more from either of those two?

However, we did expect from from O´Reilly, who refused to condemn Zippy before this election despite ALL we knew about him long before then. Rather, O´Reilly lamely said the Marxist anti-American was nothing more than a politician.

Perhaps Tim Russert was the only media person who might have asked the "tough" questions, yet he died too young. Just like Andrew Breitbart, and so many others. It seems to happen over and over again.

Police Post Disturbing Video of

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/9/2014 10:19:18 AM     Post Reply
A police organization posted a disturbing video of what it describes as “the continuation of the thug cycle.” In the video, a toddler’s uncle and two other adults encourage the three-year-old to say vile things and hold up his middle finger. Megyn Kelly described the awful video, saying, “It’s the same as watching them pick him up and beat him physically.” No charges have been filed against any of the adults in the video. Now, the police officers who posted the video are getting pushback for putting it online. The association, which is different from the department, claim they had an obligation

3 Reasons Why the Radical Anti-

Today the Drudge Report covers the Justice Department’s racialist attack on school discipline policies. The DOJ policy is based on the idea that school discipline policies are racially discriminatory because black students comprise a greater percentage of students disciplined than their percentage in the general population. Call it exceeding the bad-behavior quota. That this four-year-old federal policy exists wasn’t news. I covered it in my 2011 book Injustice. What is newsworthy is how these radical racialist education policies will outlast the Obama administration, and Republicans are ill-equipped to reverse it even if they win the White House.

Michelle Obama and Beyoncé:

Michelle Obama and Beyoncé Knowles are both powerful women married to powerful men. They are friends. Their families have spent time together. They praise each other publicly and support each other’s projects. Few would be surprised if Knowles is in town for the first lady’s 50th birthday party later this month. (Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z, will be in concert at Verizon Center on Jan. 16, the day before Obama’s birthday.) As their friendship has developed, these two women have — wittingly or not — become markers of 21st-century feminism. “They are incredibly competent women who have not just flourishing careers but

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he was “outraged” after learning — he said for the first time — that his administration purposely caused a traffic jam that clogged streets in a town at the foot of the George Washington Bridge into New York City as political payback against a mayor refuse to endorse him for re-election. Emails unearthed by NorthJersey.com contradicted Mr. Christie’s prior claims that his administration had nothing to do with the unfolding bridge scandal, and sent the tough-talking Republican into damage control. “What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable,” he said in a late-afternoon

Feds pick Obama supporter to lead
probe of IRS tea party targeting

The Justice Department put an avowed political supporter of President Obama in charge of the criminal probe into the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups, according to top Republicans who said Wednesday that the move has ruined the entire investigation. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan said they’ve discovered the head of the probe is Barbara Kay Bosserman, a trial lawyer in the Justice Department who donated more than $6,000 to Mr. Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, as well as several hundred dollars to the national Democratic Party. “The department has created a startling conflict of interest,”

It’s already been three months since the Obama administration debuted their draft proposal detailing what is, for all currently practicable purposes, a ban on the construction of coal-fired power plants (and even that reveal was the result of still another months-long delay as the administration struggled to formulate the rules in a way that could both survive the inevitable legal challenges while not restricting greenhouse-gas emissions so stringently as to disqualify even the construction of new natural gas plants — overzealous, much?). The rule finally hit the pages of the Federal Register today, opening up the formal 60-day period for

Have you heard the story of the residents of Riverton, Wyo.? One day they were Wyomingans, the next they were members of the Wind River tribes — after the Environmental Protection Agency declared the town part of the Wind River Indian Reservation, undoing a 1905 law passed by Congress and angering state officials. The surprise decision was made by officials of the EPA, the Department of Interior, and Department of Justice early last month, and has invoked the ire of Gov. Matt Mead, who has vowed not to honor the agency’s decision and is preparing to fight in court. “My deep concern

Rochester New York police are characterizing the brazen attack of an elderly woman as harassment rather than what it appears to be — another example of the hotly-debated “knockout game.” The attacker, a young black male who operated a Facebook account under the name “True Goon Tocool Sneekey”, narrated his plan for the camera. “True Goon”, who according to his now-deleted Facebook account attends John Marshall High School in Rochester, grabbed a snowball from the ground saying, “I’m about to smack the old lady with the snowball when she come out the store.” “True Goon” proceeded to dance and shimmy

After donating $2.5 million to the Democratic Senate Majority PAC, America’s favorite Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent, former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg, is signaling that his great crusade against guns is running out of steam. The need for new gun laws that was so pressing in 2013, and that Bloomberg and his organization, Mayors Against Illegal Handguns, lobbied so hard for, is apparently no longer so acute. When he was not belittling or cajoling gun control’s foes, Bloomberg spent the better part of 2013 agitating for stricter gun laws. As recently as December 14, the first anniversary of the massacre in Newtown, both

The House’s lead investigator on Wednesday told President Obama’s top health official to revise “false and misleading” testimony before Congress about known security risks to Obamacare’s federal marketplace before its October rollout. Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, accused Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a 14-page letter of ignoring red flags raised by agency officials and a private contractor before telling Republican lawmakers that no one advised her to delay the system’s launch because of security-related concerns.

Attorney General Eric Holder called upon the nation’s school districts Wednesday to rethink “zero tolerance” disciplinary policies that he said disproportionately punish minorities and push too many students into the justice system. “Alarming numbers of young people are suspended, expelled or even arrested for relatively minor transgressions like school uniform violations, schoolyard fights or showing ´disrespect´ by laughing in class,” Holder said during a speech in Baltimore. Holder’s remarks accompanied the release Wednesday of new federal guidance from the departments of Justice and Education pressing schools to adopt disciplinary policies that are “fair, nondiscriminatory, and effective.” The guidance lays out the parameters of

While honouring Emma Thompson at a dinner for the National Board of Review on Tuesday night, Meryl Streep made an extraordinary speech that criticised Walt Disney for being a "gender bigot" who was a member of an antisemitic lobbying organisation. Streep, perhaps Hollywood´s most respected and beloved actor, showed she is far from a cosy establishment figure as she carefully trod a line between praising Thompson and attacking Disney. The very film Thompson was being celebrated for, Saving Mr Banks, is based around Walt Disney´s persuading of PL Travers to allow him to adapt Mary Poppins. According to Variety´s Ramin Setoodeh,

Baby carrots have become a lunch box staple. Parents love them for their convenience and because they’re seen as a healthy food choice. Kids love them because they’re sweet and fun to eat. But what’s the real deal behind baby carrots? After all, they’re not like regular carrots. They’re perfectly shaped with rounded edges; they don’t have the same thick core; and, even peeled, they’re bright orange. And a quick Google search of baby carrots turns up some frightening information on how they’re made and whether they’re really “soaked in chlorine.” What’s up with that?
