MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Mocks
NewsBusters: This Is Brent
Bozell’s ‘Nightmare Scenario’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/7/2014 11:55:13 AM

After introducing a panel containing the D.C. bureau chiefs of three major American newspapers on Monday morning, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd took a swipe at NewsBusters by joking that this segment would be a “nightmare scenario” for the conservative media watchdog site and its founder Brent Bozell. “With me a trio of chiefs,” Todd began his intros. “Carolyn Ryan is Washington bureau chief and political editor for the New York Times, Dan Balz is the chief correspondent for the Washington Post, and Susan Page is Washington bureau chief for USA Today.” “This is really a nightmare scenario for Brent Bozell,” he joked

Comments:
The arrogance of these political hacks pretending to be "journalists" is sickening.

Kind of a backhanded acknowledgement that the NY Times, WaPo and USA Today are liberal institutions in spite of their claims of impartiality.

EPA chief: Teach climate
change in schools
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Laura Barron-Lopez    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/8/2014 9:31:43 PM     Post Reply
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Gina McCarthy said students should be taught the science behind climate change in schools. "I think part of the challenge of explaining climate change is that it requires a level of science and a level of forward thinking and you’ve got to teach that to kids," McCarthy said in an interview with the magazine Irish American published Friday. The comments from McCarthy, who is the face of President Obama’s signature climate rule on existing power plants, will likely set off a firestorm among Republican lawmakers skeptical of the science behind climate change. McCarthy added that the growing

Teachers union honcho Michael Mulgrew unleashed a venomous screed directed at anyone who would dare threaten his beloved Common Core agenda. “If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine! You do not take what is mine!” the head of the United Federation of Teachers shouted in a speech at a convention last month in Los Angeles. The rant was posted Thursday to the Ed Notes Online blog. “And I’m going to punch you in the face and push you in the dirt because this is the

Eric Holder’s Attack on NC Voter ID

The left trumpeted a voter ID decision in Wisconsin as if it were the end of the issue. Let’s see what they do with this one. A federal court today smacked down the Holder Justice Department and refused to enjoin (block) North Carolina’s voter ID law, curtailment of costly early voting and end of fraud-infested same day registration. This means the state’s voter ID law will be in place for the midterm congressional (and Senate) elections in November. The Justice Department had actually argued that even if black voters turned out at higher rates under voter ID (which they do), because

US officials: US launches second

NEW DELHI – American officials say the U.S. launched a second round of airstrikes against Islamic State targets near Irbil on Friday, using drones and fighter jets. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren´t authorized to discuss the strikes by name, say unmanned aircraft struck a mortar near Irbil and four Navy F/A-18 fighter jets struck a seven-vehicle convoy outside Irbil. The jets flew off the USS George HW Bush aircraft carrier. The Friday afternoon strikes followed a morning strike on an Islamic State artillery gun that was firing on Kurdish troops near U.S. personnel. President Barack Obama said

Journalists Restricted By Hamas Rules

On August 6, Cliff May of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies charged that while the media have filled their stories on the current conflict in Gaza with “pictures of neighborhoods reduced to rubble, with Palestinian men, women and children in desperate circumstances,” they have been negligent in telling their audiences that Hamas has been “deploying civilians as human shields, storing missiles in mosques and UN schools, setting up command posts in hospitals, using ambulances to ferry terrorists to battle, and children to dig tunnels.” One reason for this bias, according to May is Hamas’ intimidation of journalists. May relayed that

It’s all for the art, man. José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, the artist behind the exhibition called ‘Profanity Pop’ has taken his “art” to an irreligious level, depicting Mickey Mouse as Christ, Daisy duck as the Virgin Mary holding pregnancy test, and a priest giving communion to Jessica Rabbit. Predictably, Ontiveros is a hit with liberals. Ontiveros described his collection as a “celebration of creative freedom in our time." Attacking the Catholic Church in pop-culture is so creative and original. Nobody’s ever donethat before. Cosmopolitan magazine regarded the photos of the “Disney Princesses Misbehaving” as just feeling “right.” How dysfunctional do you need to be to

Not buying it: Majority of

A majority of Americans believe President Obama´s ongoing struggle with Congress is more about partisan politics than it is about principle, according to Rasmussen Reports. And the president isn’t the only one who catches blame for Washington’s infamously hated gridlock: Voters say Republicans in Congress are just as much a part of the problem. The survey, which was conducted from July 31 to Aug. 1 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, found that 69 percent of respondents believe the political gridlock is all about scoring partisan points, while a measly 20 percent believes

Obama´s narrow, specific,
extremely limited action in Iraq
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/8/2014 1:02:53 PM     Post Reply
The Drudge headline says, "Obama Bombs Iraq." The Washington Examiner headline says, "U.S. military aircraft conducts first airstrike in Iraq." The Washington Post headline says, "U.S. launches airstrikes against Islamic State in Iraq." All are entirely accurate, but what is perhaps most notable about President Obama´s rationale for action, laid out in a brief address to the nation Thursday night, is how precisely limited the president´s directive is. Some Republicans are calling for Obama to take broad and decisive action in Iraq. This is most definitely not it. In the president´s first sentence Wednesday night, he stressed that he was authorizing

An elementary school in the outer suburbs of Atlanta has outlawed birthday cupcakes, cookies and, in fact, all food from birthday parties over fears that some kids with food allergies could feel sad and left out. Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.

Speaker of the House John Boehner on Friday said he approves of President Obama’s airstrikes in Iraq, but denounced the administration for an apparent lack of a strategy to deal with the Islamic militants terrorizing the country and religious minorities. “The president’s authorization of airstrikes is appropriate, but like many Americans, I am dismayed by the ongoing absence of a strategy for countering the grave threat ISIS poses to the region,” Boehner said in a statement. “Vital national interests are at stake, yet the White House has remained disengaged despite warnings from Iraqi leaders, Congress, and even members of its

The Texas principal who was placed on administrative leave and then fired for telling Hispanic students at her middle school that they should speak English in the classroom can now speak freely — the gag order has expired — and says that her request only mirrored what’s written in state law. Amy Lacey was placed on administrative leave in 2013 after she asked via an intercom announcement that Hempstead Middle School students should speak English in the classroom. She shortly after learned that the school board declined to renew her contract and would be firing her. Meanwhile, reports swirled that Ms. Lacey

With midterm elections around the corner, and the 2016 presidential campaign season starting to kick into gear, Republican politicians are once again looking for a way to woo Latino voters to the ballot box in their favor. And one way they hope to draw in their votes is by looking south. Some GOP leaders in Washington have hindered the party´s relationship with the Hispanic bloc by comparing the current situation with the influx of Central American migrants as an “invasion” and passing legislation to accelerate the deportation of the unaccompanied children. Others, however, realizing the Latino vote cost them the White

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

The disgraceful video above shows how racist Russian students projected a laser image of Barack Obama eating a banana on to the US Embassy in Moscow. On 4th August, the so-called show began with a message to the US President pretending to wish him a happy 53rd birthday. A likeness of Obama with a party hat on his head then appeared, although the mouth area was made to look like that of a monkey - and a banana repeatedly moved into the mouth. The series of projections are then repeated several times. A group calling itself The Moscow Student Initiative

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis on Thursday questioned the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops on the border with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration and she promised, if elected, that she will study withdrawing them. The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov. Rick Perry, and it is expected that in the coming days they will begin to be deployed along the Texas-Mexico border, which stretches some 2,000 kilometers (about 1,240 miles).

The GOP has shown time and again that it is incapable of passing any meaningful immigration reform. But give them tens of thousands of Central American children fleeing violence, and they fly into action. Turns out, what animates today´s Republicans is deporting kids. So inspired were they, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives stayed late Friday to distort and demagogue a humanitarian crisis, passing a reprehensible bill that the Republicans claim addresses the border crisis. Kevin Appleby, director of the Office of Migration Policy at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told me, "This bill guts any real due process for

Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express. Move America Forward has run fake drives to give care packages to troops, stolen images of other charitable campaigns and passed them off as its own, and trumpeted a nonexistent partnership with Walter Reed Hospital — all while funneling very real millions to itself.

Willingboro — A recreation and senior citizens center in Willingboro known as the "Kennedy Center" will soon be named after the sitting president and not a former one. The change became official Tuesday when the township council voted to change the name of the building to honor President Barack Obama, according to a report on BurlingtonCountyTimes.com. The change is not meant as a slight to former President John F. Kennedy, councilman Chris Walker told the website.

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and

UNTERFÖHRING, Germany — In nearly 30 years at Heckler & Koch, a legendary German gunmaker, Ernst Mauch designed some of the world’s most lethal weapons, including the one that reportedly killed Osama bin Laden. A state regulator once called him a “rock star” in the industry. Now the gun world sees him a different way: as a traitor. The target of their fury is the smart gun Mauch designed at Armatix, a start-up near Munich. The very concept of the weapon has been attacked by U.S. gun rights advocates even as it has helped Mauch resolve a sense of guilt that
