Watch: Nobody at Fox Has Actually
Read Gates’ Memoir but They Sure
Have Opinions on It

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2014 2:07:34 PM

On Wednesday morning, Fox News ran eight — count ‘em — eight segments on former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ forthcoming memoir, in which he scalds President Barack Obama for frivolously deploying troops in Afghanistan under a military strategy he didn’t support. Or at least that’s the impression you’d get from the pundits who pontificated on the book. The problem— none of them have actually read it. Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War doesn’t come out until January 14, and all Fox News’ anchors and guests relied on very selective excerpts from Bob Woodward’s Washington Post review. (Cherry-picked excerpts at that—most

Comments:
Seriously?? I don´t watch CNN, MessNBC, et al, but you can rest assured that they also had opinions on the Gates book and they all tried to cover for 0bama and Clinton. Come on McMurry, you can do better than that!

Democrats on the other hand feel emboldened to pass landmark legislation without actually having read it. Which is worse?

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, just back from a submarine trip to the Arctic Circle, says she´s seen the melting ice up close, and "there is no question...that the impact of climate change is everywhere." She said the United States, as the world´s largest economy, has a "responsibility to be part of the solution," and she said the solution includes policy changes: "We can change our policies," Jewell told MSNBC´s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday.

When an expectant mother visits her doctor for an ultrasound, the doctor invariably asks: Do you want to know the sex of your child? The Obama administration, however, does not believe an unborn child has a sex — even when a doctor sees indisputable physical evidence. Obama´s Office of Personnel Management has published what it calls "Guidance Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Workplace." This document speaks of "sex" as something a person has "assigned" to them only after they make it through the birth canal. "Transgender individuals are people with a gender identity that is different from

White House ´disappointed´ by
Supreme Court ruling on donor limits
Washington Examiner, by Meghashyam Mali    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/2/2014 2:50:06 PM     Post Reply
The White House on Wednesday criticized a Supreme Court decision that struck down overall limits on political contributions from individuals. “We are, in fact, disappointed by the decision that was announced today,” said White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest to reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Michigan with the president. He cited the dissent from Justice Stephen Breyer, who said the ruling “eviscerates” the nation´s campaign finance laws. The Supreme Court its 5-4 ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission held that it was unconstitutional to limit the total amount of money individual donors could give to

How absurd is this response from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid? When it first appeared on Twitter, everyone assumed it was satire. Not so, reports Politico, as truth remains stranger than fiction, if just as predictable: Responding to the decision, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) invoked his favorite boogeymen: the Koch brothers. “The Supreme Court today just accentuated what they did on Citizens United, which is a decision that is one of the worst decisions in the history of that court,” Reid said during a press conference on raising the minimum wage. “All it does is take away people’s rights because,

When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year’s, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions. The administration’s fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014. For contributions to peacekeeping missions, it is asking for $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 last year. The $2.518 billion for peacekeeping amounts to 28.36 percent of the U.N.’s total peacekeeping budget. The U.S. also

WASHINGTON – Members of a group seeking to unionize college athletes are looking for allies on Capitol Hill as they brace for an appeal of a ruling that said full scholarship athletes at Northwestern University are employees who have the right to form a union. Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter -- the face of a movement to give college athletes the right to unionize -- and Ramogi Huma, the founder and president of the National College Players Association, scheduled meetings Wednesday with lawmakers.

As the 2014 elections draw near, panic is setting in for President Obama and Democrats across the country. As John Harwood of The New York Times observed on Tuesday, “The very structure of the 21st-century national Democratic coalition makes its November turnout predicament bad, perhaps historically so.” Blacks, women, and young people turned out in historic numbers for Obama in 2012; those groups will experience significant turnout dropoff in 2014. So, what happens when President Obama does not achieve his wish and take back the House while maintaining the Senate? He has already threatened to use his phone and his

Did Michigan just trigger ´constitutional

WASHINGTON – Momentum is building behind what would be an unprecedented effort to amend the U.S. Constitution, through a little-known provision that gives states rather than Congress the power to initiate changes. At issue is what´s known as a "constitutional convention," a scenario tucked into Article V of the U.S. Constitution. At its core, Article V provides two ways for amendments to be proposed. The first – which has been used for all 27 amendment to date – requires two-thirds of both the House and Senate to approve a resolution, before sending it to the states for ratification.

The former acting director of the CIA, in his first public testimony on Benghazi, confirmed that he ignored guidance from the top CIA officer on the ground in favor of reporting from analysts far removed from the scene, in shaping the flawed "talking points" which said the attack sprung from a protest. Mike Morell, who served as both deputy and acting director of the agency, is under increasing scrutiny over his role in forming the administration´s public narrative about the attack -- a narrative which inaccurately blamed a protest from the outset. Morell is accused of heavily editing the so-called "talking

The Border Patrol has come under an unprecedented level of fire from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and their allies in both government and media for the use of deadly force in response to some rock attacks from individuals and groups illegally entering the U.S. from Mexico. Breitbart Texas has reported extensively on the left-of-center campaign to restrict the ability of Border Patrol agents to defend themselves and on the false narratives such open-borders advocates use in their

A college in Massachusetts decided to throw a $56,000 scholarship at Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old cheerleader who infamously sued her parents for tuition and child support, and lost real bad. (Personal disclosure: I was raised a Buddhist, but now I’m losing faith in my religion’s fundamental tenet of karma.) The honors student announced on her Facebook page that she would attend Western New England University in Springfield, MA starting in August. The school confirmed her scholarship to the New York Post, adding that the scholarship was based on academic merit, and would be spread out over her four-year attendance. (Quick note: tuition

After the Supreme Court ruled today to strike down aggregate limits on an individual’s federal campaign contributions, CNN anchor Carol Costello lamented that now “money is people too.” Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined Costello on-air to explain for viewers the Wednesday ruling. This case expands the previous ruling from 2010´s Citizens United v. FEC to now say that, in his words, “individuals have a First Amendment right to give as many different political campaigns as they want the maximum amount of money. There used to be an overall limit of how much money you could give to individuals, to individual

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.
