Chuck Todd and Ed Henry Caught
Mocking McCain on Hot Mic

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/19/2014 7:39:03 PM

Ever wonder what all those White House correspondents talk about while they are waiting for President Barack Obama to step up to the podium? Well now thanks to a live feed and a hot mic, we know what MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and Fox News’ Ed Henry really think about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Before Obama entered the briefing room to make his statement on Iraq, Todd leaned over to Henry to ask him what McCain, who supports air strikes in Iraq, must think now that General David Petraeus has come out against further military action. In video captured by The Right Pundit, Todd asked if anyone had “checked on” McCain since Petraeus

Comments:
I guess we aren´t the only ones who are tired of the insufferable McCain and also mock him. You would think there isn´t another Republican (like Ted Cruz) capable of speaking about the Iraq war.

So nice to know FNC´s ed henry and upchuck todd are such close buds and can share a laugh at the expense of a sitting Senator. There was a time when someone who went through what John McCain did, would deserve respect. But then after what was done to Admiral Stockdale, also a POW in Vietnam, we can expect no less from the "msm". Shame on them.

McCain presents himself as some kind of military expert, so things like this are probably not uncommon. I´ve said worse than that about him here.
He´s also an expert on (and supporter of) the invaders from the south.

#2 McCain is actually some kind of military expert.
Unlike those 2 giggling lightweights Todd and Henry.
An Annapolis grad, Navy pilot , 6 years as a POW.
Two sons who have served.
One a Marine, one an Annapolis grad.

If being a loose cannon makes one some kind of military expert, then I concur with the poster above re Johnny "bombs away" McCain´s prowess.

However, as a pilot, he really had no business flying combat aircraft based on the number of planes that he crashed. He got into the Naval Academy as a legacy candidate as his dad and grand dad were both admirals and Academy grads. And he barely managed to stay in school by his own admission.

John McCain is indefensible as
a pilot
a Senator
a presidential candidate
It is perfectly fine to mock
John McCain in any forum.
He is, however, the perfect
establishment republican.
He loves the reach across or reach
around as the case may be, so long
as he gets publicity and is seen
as bipartisan by all the right
people. Have I got the style
down correctly?

McCain is a repugnant piece of RINO crap who has a long history of stabbing America in the back.

Trail Of Lost IRS Emails
Might Lead To White House
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 8:56:20 PM     Post Reply
Scandal: One of the seven people, including Lois Lerner who lost emails from the period of Tea Party targeting by the IRS, served as chief of staff to former IRS head Steven Miller. She also made 35 visits to the White House. The funny thing about emails is that they are never orphans. When you send one, there´s always a recipient who has his or her own copy. The "lost" Lois Lerner emails had recipients. How about subpoenas to all of them during the Tea Party targeting period? That should help find what we need to know — or maybe

NBC News has just released a preview of David Gregory’s interview with Rand Paul, set to air on this Sunday’s Meet The Press, in which the Republican senator responds directly to criticism President Barack Obama has received from former Vice President Dick Cheney and others on Iraq. After listening to what Cheney had to say, Paul remarked, “I think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War.” In his Wall Street Journal op-ed this week, Cheney, along with his daughter, wrote, “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of

Obama Admin Put Out a Bid to
Deal With the Illegal Aliens Now
Flooding the Border…Back in January

The flood of illegal aliens, including thousands under the age of 18, at the border has gotten major media coverage in the past couple of weeks. The Obama administration acts as if it was caught off-guard by the massive influx of Central Americans who have traveled across Mexico to get into the United States. But it wasn’t surprised at all. A recently discovered government request for “escort services for unaccompanied alien children” dating back to January is raising questions about whether the government was planning for a surge of illegal immigrants this year as amnesty talks heated up in the United States.

White House Calls IRS Investigation
A ´Conspiracy Theory´
Breitbart TV, by Pam Key    Original Article

Friday at the daily briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest repeatedly dismissed concerns over Internal Revenue Service claims that two years of Lois Lerner´s emails are lost forever as "conspiracy theories." "Turns out that there have been 13 months of multiple congressional investigations, including 14 congressional hearings, 30 interviews with IRS employees, 50 written congressional requests, and 750,000 pages of documents, and all of that has done nothing to substantiate false Republican claims of a broader political conspiracy," Earnest said. "So I don’t know if you’re floating another conspiracy or if this is a request from

Obama: ‘We gave Iraq the chance
to have an inclusive democracy’
Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 7:57:48 PM     Post Reply
President Obama hopes Iraq’s Shia-led government can find a way to be more inclusive of its Sunni minority, but if it can’t come to a reconciliation with its multiple factions, then he says no amount of U.S. military assistance will help. “We gave Iraq the chance to have an inclusive democracy,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CNN on Friday. The message for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki also comes shortly after the Shiite leader was chided by Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in the holy city of Najaf, south of Baghdad. Mr. Obama’s comments come as 300 military advisers make their

White House to give more than $250 MILLION

as its response to overwhelming surge in

Daily Mail [UK], by Francesca Chambers    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/20/2014 7:43:21 PM     Post Reply
The White House announced $254.6 million in new aid for Central American countries today. The money will go toward returning unaccompanied minors who travel to the U.S. illegally to their families and fostering youth centered programs in their home countries, the White House said this afternoon. The assistance to the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced today is in addition to the $130 million in aid the U.S. already provides those countries in economic assistance. The U.S. has also decided to begin detaining families at the border instead of giving them court dates and releasing them. The new

Muslim Stereotypes In FX´s ´Tyrant´

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants television reviewers to address what the group sees as inflammatory stereotypes in the new FX drama Tyrant. The series, set to debut June 24, concerns a politically connected Arab-American (Adam Rayner) drawn back into his native land´s power struggle after 20 years in the U.S. His father is the dictator of a fictional Middle Eastern nation, and the man´s family deals with those ties in a variety of ways. CAIR has issues with the very first episode of the series. In the pilot of FX´s ´Tyrant,´ Arab Muslim culture is devoid of any redeeming qualities and is

Adam Baldwin could have joined TNT’s The Last Ship to collaborate with producer Michael Bay, engage in classic action hero banter or relish the latest doomsday scenario. What sealed the deal for the Firefly and Chuck alum was spending time with members of the U.S. Navy. “Any chance I get to work in military-based activities ... I jump at,” Baldwin says. The Last Ship, partially filmed at the 32nd Street naval base in San Diego, follows the USS Nathan James as it searches for a cure to a virus which wiped out most of the earth’s population.

White House officials won’t say how many of the illegal immigrants now flooding up from Central America have been given a courtroom date to ask for green cards. “I will take a look and see if those numbers are available,” White House Josh Earnest told frustrated reporters at the Friday White House press conference. Earnest’s evasion came after multiple questions from Fox News’ Ed Henry and NBC’s Jim Avila. “We will get back to you with respect to the precise numbers,” Alejandro Mayorkas, the deputy secretary of Homeland Security, told reporters during a Friday phone conference with reporters.

The New York Times bestseller list hasn´t waited a millisecond to put Hillary Clinton´s book atop its influential chart after just a week of sales, but has totally ignored another top-10 hardcover from noted conservative and critic of President Obama, Dinesh D´Souza. His new book, on sale for three weeks, isn’t just absent from the top 10 lists already set for the next two Sundays, but totally missing from the list of the nation’s top 25 nonfiction hardcovers despite having sales higher than 13 on the latest Times chart.

Las Vegas hotel magnate and prominent GOP donor Sheldon Adelson believes all of the country´s illegal immigrants should be put on a path to citizenship and given driver´s licenses and bank accounts while on that path. A post-election poll showed that former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty legislation, but Adelson said he hoped that would not derail it. "Let’s start by instituting a process in which all undocumented immigrants receive permits to legally work here," he wrote at Politico, even as the country faces a crisis with illegal immigrant children flooding

Criticism of President Obama´s foreign policy is roiling around the Capitol, as devastation and terror quickly creep through Iraq and House Republicans prepare for yet another investigation of the 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Libya. But for all their highly charged rhetoric aimed at the administration, Republicans have one point of praise: Obama appears to be building on lessons learned in Benghazi in working to keep Americans in Iraq secure. "What I see is a learning from Benghazi," Sen. Lindsey Graham told National Journal this week, saying that the administration is "absolutely" doing a better job protecting Americans there

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday. The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways." It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama´s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants. "Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise.

Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary. On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence.

All the time I was growing up in Atlanta, the face of Robert E. Lee was taking shape on the side of an enormous granite mountain just outside town. He loomed like a god above us, as much a presence as any deity, and God knows he was accepted as such. It was only much later that I began to question his sanctity, and then to hate what he stood for. When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose

As President, my top priority is rebuilding an economy where everybody who works hard has the chance to get ahead. That’s what I’ll spend some time talking about on Monday, at the White House Summit on Working Families. We’re bringing together business leaders and workers to talk about the challenges that working parents face every day, and how we can address them together.
