Watch out, Alan Grayson: you´ve got competition when it comes to uttering the ugliest slur on Tea Party Republicans . . . Sure, you´ve compared them to the Klan. But fellow Dem Steve Cohen has upped the ante. On Steve Kornacki´s MSNBC show this morning, Cohen called Tea Party congressmen: "domestic enemies" that he took an oath to defend the country against. Did Kornacki challenge Cohen´s libel? Hah! He merely observed that Cohen sounded "very pessimistic." View the video after the jump.Was Cohen´s calumny what President Obama had in mind when this past week he proclaimed that "there is no
Guys who run about calling Republicans ´domestic enemies´ stand a good chance of getting bumped off by some fellow who will use that as a successful defense for doing so. He probably won´t even be a real Republican ~ just somebody who has a bad day.
Let me say this about Democrats ~ they´ve picked up some of the stupidest people I´ve ever seen.
Cohen and his dem coharts are actually the enemies I took an oath to defend against. They ignore the Constitution, want to destroy it and change the entire way our country has been. Seems he is the enemy, not the Tea Party who want the support the Constitution. I´d bet Cohen can´t tell you much about what the Constitution says -- other than the wrong"facts" the dems use as talking points.
#3: On one hand I´d like to see every conservative come down on this guy like a ton of bricks but on the other hand I´d prefer we all stay mum and not lower ourselves publicly to the level of these Marxist/Fascist statist in DC.
Let the conservative talk show hosts and Fox News spread the word on this holier-than-thou lefty!
Maybe The Bonner could bring a resolution of condemnation to the house floor over Cohen´s remark.
With this level of rhetoric coming from the chief Marxist/Fascist in the WH, down to the likes of this lowlife in the house and then from liberal commentators, we are headed toward very serious trouble in this country.
Do the dems really think they are intimidating us by these verbal jabs and insults? Do they think we are knocked back on our heals and hiding behind closed doors because of last Sunday´s votes?
They´ve got some surprises coming during the next 4 years!
Every time a liberal tells you something about their competition, they are really telling you about themselves. I guess you could call it projection. I am not sure its subconscious as psychological projection would be -- I think its part of their strategery. Libs/progressives are the true enemies of the state -- they should be purged.
Mr. Cohen gets a good look at a domestic enemy every morning when he looks in the mirror. It is simply amazing to me that this guy ever got elected in Tennessee. New York or Florida, perfect fit. I thought the Tennessee voter could spot a commie New York carpetbagger in a second. Blame it on the public schools I guess.
Pompous. We taxpayers are fed up with the sickening amounts of money you are spending. Then I have to read about Hillary and Terry McAuliffe making the claim that we have divisive politics because of the shutdown. Hey, Dem Rep Steve Cohen, tea party people aren´t going away.
These evil men never have the guts to make these comments in any honest debate. Even I could crucify this idiot with logic that proved he was totally opposed to the Constitution which he vowed to uphold.
This is a highly organized assault on the TEA party by the communist radical extreme left wing democrats. Obama calling the shots. His hatred is so obvious I can almost see smoke coming out of his big ears. I am sure the democrats are faxed their talking points every morning. Just think of all the attacks on the TEA party over the past month. Think back, have we EVER heard such vicious, vile statements from Pelosi, Reid, Obama and now the lower ranks of democrats? Wear the insults like a badge of honor. We are winning.
We must keep in mind, what criminals do when they get caught? They always deny and accuse others.
We sure do have "domestic enemies". It´s those running up the debt to buy votes. Its those ignoring and violating the constitution. It´s those who make their constituents play by one set of rules why they play by another. It´s those who have divided the nation by race, gender and class. It´s those who reward bad behavior and destructive lifestyles while punishing the moral and productive. It´s those who lie and make promises they can´t keep and then blame the innocent.
The generous mystery tipper who has been leaving waiters and waitresses across the country thousands of dollars in "Tips for Jesus" — and stamped with the @tipsforjesus handle — was identified by a New York City waiter as Jack Selby, former PayPal vice president. Aruj Dhawan, a waiter at Bo´s Kitchen, told the New York Post that Selby and two other patrons gave him a $1,000 tip on a $111.05 bill. "As I was about to drop the check off, one of the men said they would ‘make my night.’ They called me over, gave me the check," Dhawan told
General Motors GM -0.22% CEO Dan Akerson and the GM board have selected product chief Mary Barra to succeed him, the company said today, and Akerson is retiring in January. The move will make 33-year GM veteran Barra the first woman to lead a global automaker. Arguably, it will make her the highest-profile female CEO in the world. It also set in motion a cascade of other management changes in the biggest re-set of the automaker’s leadership since the 2009 U.S.-government bailout. But all the moves were internal. Akerson accelerated the timing of his exit by several months because of
Democrats have blamed much of the gridlock on Capitol Hill on a number of GOP extremists who won’t accept legislation that is not perfect in their minds. Asked by Kenneth G. Langone, the co-founder of Home Depot, whether there are any extremists in the Democratic ranks, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said no. “I don’t think there are any extremists in my party,” the Maryland Democrat said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” Mr. Langone expressed disbelief at the comment. “What more can I say,” he said. “The other guys are the bad guys, you are the good guys.” Mr. Hoyer said
“Netflix is casting its vote for Mitt Romney,” quipped The Hollywood Reporter. The video streaming service has acquired a Greg Whiteley documentary titled “Mitt” that will debut January 24. The behind-the-scenes documentary on Romney’s campaigns for president from 2006 to 2012 with a “surprising level of access” to the candidate will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 17. Lisa Nishimura, Netflix vice president of original documentary and comedy, declared "This rare inside look at Mitt Romney and his family as he runs for president showcases a unique kind of storytelling, one which takes the viewer well beyond the
Reporting from South Africa on Tuesday´s NBC Today about the memorial ceremony for Nelson Mandela, Nightly News anchor Brian Williams noted how the "dignitary section has some criminals, some thieves, some kings, some presidents" and that "Several have been life-long sworn enemies." He then proclaimed that President Obama´s "handshake with [Cuban leader] Raul Castro was one of the better moments." [View video after the jump] Williams gushed that oppressive dictators sitting side by side with democratically elected leaders of the free world was somehow part of Mandela´s legacy: "What would Nelson Mandela say to all of them and say to
The Club for Growth said Tuesday it won´t help Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) primary challenge against Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas). The conservative group said it has no problem with Cornyn and won´t spend the millions of dollars necessary to help the cash-strapped Stockman in the race. “While Congressman Stockman has a pro-economic growth record, so does Senator Cornyn, as witnessed by his 87 percent lifetime Club for Growth score,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said in a statement. Chocola said the Club´s PAC looks at the strength of the incumbent´s record, the degree of difference between the candidates and
On Tuesday morning, New York’s top court ruled that FoxNews.com reporter Jana Winter cannot be forced by a Colorado court to reveal her sources regarding a major story about the Aurora movie theater shooter. Voting 4-3 in favor of Winter, the New York State Court of Appeals reversed a lower court order and effectively prevented Winter from having to be subpoenaed by the Colorado court. “[A]n order from a New York court directing a reporter to appear in another state where, as here, there is a substantial likelihood that she will be compelled to identify sources who have been promised
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly made her inaugural appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Monday night and discussed how she went from practicing law to hosting a primetime show on Fox, how much fun she has catching politicians in their dissembling, and why she so dislikes Anthony Weiner (aside from the obvious). “I’m a straight news anchor, I’m not one of the opinion hosts at Fox,” Kelly said. “But I always laugh, because I’ll have a conservative pull me aside and say, ‘I love your conservative principles,’ and I’ll say, ‘You assume too much.’ And then the liberals
LOS ANGELES- CBS says it is adapting U.S. author Alice Hoffman´s 2011 historical novel "The Dovekeepers" as a miniseries to air in 2015. Roma Downey and Mark Burnett are executive producing the project, which is about four extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada in 70 C.E. "After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert," CBS said in a synopsis. "Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman
Here´s the tweet from Carrie Underwood that has everyone talking... [Tweet] She was responding to some harsh criticism of the "The Sound of Music Live!" which aired on NBC last week, starring Underwood as Maria von Trapp. The show, which still garnered huge ratings, ended up being parodied by "Saturday Night Live" and was even criticized by some of the original "Sound of Music" stars. Actress Kym Karath tweeted that some of the show was "painful to watch." "X Factor" host Mario Lopez joined Fox and Friends this morning to discuss Underwood´s performance and the response. Elisabeth Hasselbeck believes that
Yesterday, The New York Times reported that President Obama had hired former-President Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta as "counselor" for a year. This would actually be the second time Podesta served Obama, since Podesta led Obama´s presidential transition team in 2008. Since then, Podesta has not only returned to the progressive think tank he founded, the Center for American Progress (CAP), but he has also created a brand new think tank, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, to focus on just income inequality. So just what will Podesta be doing for Obama this time around? The NYT reports: Mr. Podesta
President Obama’s disapproval rating has shot up to 53 percent, the highest rating the McClatchy-Marist poll has recorded for him in nearly 30 surveys. Obama´s approval rating stood at 43 percent the poll released Monday night. Obama’s approval rating has been hanging in the low 40s for the last few months as the 16-day government shutdown and the shaky rollout of the healthcare exchange website dominated the news. But there is plenty of disapproval to go around. A plurality of people, 38 percent, would grade all Washington officials with an “F,” according to the poll. Another 31 percent would give
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg.

President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony.

All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
An Iraq veteran who thought he was buying an iPad as a Christmas present after responding to a Craigslist posting, has been shot dead in an Indianapolis parking lot by the fake sellers.
