People will look at this and laugh, but they should consider the disturbing implications. Watch the video. It starts as funny, but I can't imagine how it isn't at least a little chilling by the end. Media Reacts: A Christmas Present Or Two Or Ten EditionStop me if you've heard this one! Hilarious video shows dozens of local newscasters making the exact same joke about holiday shopping
'The joke was delivered with practiced panache over and over from Boise to Biloxi and locals were likely unaware that stations commonly use scripts from subscription news services
during their broadcasts'...BUT WAIT... this can't be right...
...the idea that local broadcasts nationwide all march in lockstep is tinfoil conspiracy theory!
The idea that there is some great single source all of these similarly minded journalists and editors draw from is ridiculous!
Only crazy conservative nut jobs believe all of these people think alike, or get the same ideas from the same place!
So Democrats tell us.
But let's pretend, just for fun, maybe they all pulled from the same source for this verbatim joke. How is it then unreasonable to consider the possibility one entity can influence that single source, or that the single source is of a particular ideological mindset, pushing an agenda?
Even the video above might be such an agenda - "the economy is down and Obama needs spending up to boost it - encourage Americans to buy for themselves"
I know... CRAZY! Clearly I'm a conspiracy theorist.
They are no different than those who put the National Socialists in power.Obama White House Calls GOP a "Cult Worthy of Jonestown"
" In that post we explained how Podesta literally wrote the book on how Obama should govern by fiat, without any input from Congress, after Republicans took control of the House in 2010. We concluded:
If progressives are going to make any progress expanding government during the rest of Obama's presidency, it will only be through unilateral executive action. It will not be sanctioned by Congress.'
" Today, Politico confirmed that governing-by-executive-fiat is exactly what Podesta has in mind. The only shocking part of the story is Podesta's justification for shredding the Constitution:
[...]Podesta, whose official mandate includes enforcement of numerous executive orders on emissions and the environment, suggested as much when he spoke with me earlier this fall about Obama’s team. 'They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,' he told me.'That's right. Obama's new counselor, the man in charge of saving his presidency, believes the Republican Party is a murderous cult and that this justifies Obama's extra-constitutional use of executive power.
Every Republican in Washington, DC, should read this article on Podesta's power grab, and those Republicans contemplating working with Democrats on immigration reform should read it twice."
Democrats have proven they will support literally anything this administration does. Now the guy Obama has brought in is happy to say in conversation that the opposition party is a murderous cult, justify the executive taking any action it desires.

"'I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime,' Barbara Walters told Piers Morgan on his show Tuesday night. But despite her best judgment, she went on to say it – and it was quite a controversial statement.
What exactly was it?"“'He made so many promises,' she began. 'We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole Obamacare, or whatever you want to call it, that Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.'
She added: 'It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high.'"
She openly includes herself in the club.
She emphasizes the Messiah comment by acknowledging that saying it during Christmas is especially problematic. So Messiah isn't a lightly chosen word.
Her primary concern isn't the years of fraud
to sell it, the unconstitutional method it was passed, the tax/not contradiction of the Supreme Court ruling, the millions suffering
now due to it from dropped insurance and other problems, the completely failed execution of it, or the many millions more who will suffer, many more problems we know are coming down the line. No, her concern is how it's worked for him
This, sadly, is how many Democrats think. This particular herd animal is a respected journalist.

An excellent piece. The conservative group that lost its credibility
"That’s an extra $23 billion in deficit reduction.
But the savings come in the future. The voided spending cuts occur over the next two years. If Congress can vacate these previously enacted spending cuts, why can’t they roll back the future savings when the time comes?"
Two times with taxes and at least once with immigration the Democrats have done this to Republicans before. Reagan and Bush Sr were promised cuts later for taxes now. It was a lie. Reagan was promised border control and immigration reform later for amnesty now. It was a lie. The Republican Party no longer has an excuse to accept this obvious tactic.
"But what about when Republicans controlled both Congress and the White House for most of the period from 2001 to 2006? During this period of time, No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, Sarbanes-Oxley, McCain-Feingold, the Patriot Act and bloated farm, transportation and energy bills all became law.

Coming as no surprise, the Buckley Rule has been misrepresented by establishment GOP for some time.Ted Cruz Extends the Buckley Rule
"The Buckley Rule is often invoked — erroneously — by any number of Republicans when trying to dissuade support for conservative insurgent candidate X on the grounds that the candidate’s conservatism makes them un-electable. Its proponents loved to quote it as saying that conservatives should support 'the rightwardmost electable candidate.'
Indeed, this formulation was repeatedly put forth by Karl Rove."
"In a delightful article
titled 'Buckley Rule — According to Bill, not Karl,' Neal Freeman recounted the rule’s actual wording. Which was: 'National Review will support the rightwardmost viable candidate.'In other words, the key word in Buckley’s original rule was the word 'viable' — not the word 'electable.' The word 'electable' was in fact not in the Buckley Rule at all. 'Rightwardmost viable' was a world away in meaning from 'rightwardmost electable.'
In practical terms it meant, as Freeman notes, that NR would choose Goldwater over Rockefeller for the 1964 GOP presidential nomination. Why pick the almost certain to lose Goldwater over the supposedly more 'electable' (and liberal) Rocky? Because, wrote Freeman (bold emphasis mine):
'We all knew what 'viable' meant in Bill’s lexicon. It meant somebody who saw the world as we did. Somebody who would bring credit to our cause. Somebody who, win or lose, would conservatize the Republican party and the country.'"
"It meant that Buckley himself would challenge liberal Republican nominee John Lindsay in the 1965 New York mayor’s race. A race in which, says Freeman, Buckley:
'….reaffirmed his position by running in New York City as a third-party conservative against a highly electable Republican. I can tell you as the manager of that campaign that there was never a single day, from our first planning meeting in February until the polls closed in November, that Bill considered himself even remotely electable. But viable? Absolutely. He was the best candidate in the country to carry the conservative message into the heart of American liberalism.
And for those who needed further reinforcement of the point, five years later Bill’s brother, James, ran for the U.S. Senate as a third-party candidate against a mainstream-Republican incumbent.'"
When Republicans substitute 'electable' they are committing the same despicable behavior of Democrats - repeating an Orwellian twisting of the truth either through ignorance or deceit.
Buckley believed in fighting for conservatism, and in picking people who will further it. That is the only
chance this Republic still has.

"And this president wasn’t. I think part of the reason he wasn’t careful is because he sort of lives in words. That’s been his whole professional life—books, speeches.

It’s all been pretty abstract for him, not concrete. He never had to stock a store, run a sale and see lots of people come but the expenses turn out to be larger than you’d expected and the profits smaller, and you have to figure out what went wrong and do better next time.

An excellent piece on the auto bailout I'm putting here to archive.http://www.nationalaffairs.com/publications/detail/the-auto-bailout-and-the-rule-of-law
"Every piece of the 'success story' of the auto bailout would thus seem to be in error. The bailout was not absolutely necessary and was pursued by means of dubious legality; the bankruptcies were highly irregular and inefficient; and the companies that have emerged from bankruptcy are far from lean and fit. They are certainly in no position to repay taxpayers for the generous loans they were given.
But as bad as the facts of the story are, the implications are much worse. Through their actions, both the Bush and Obama administrations have set dangerous precedents — and made it much more difficult to reverse the trends of executive overreach and excessive government entanglement with private business."
"The Obama administration's role in this story, however, is far more troubling. One cannot explain away Obama's overreach as a panicked response to an emergency; rather, his actions toward GM and Chrysler were part of a considered, coherent approach to the relationship between government and private industry."
"Taken together, these laws have dramatically worsened the entanglement of government and the private sector, and have thereby led to **an increase in lobbying activity by special interests** seeking government favors or protection."
"The auto bailouts exemplify this new reality. Sold as a means of revitalizing the economy, they are in fact a means of transforming the relationship between the state and the market in a way that empowers large players at the cost of economic growth"

Woman cited by President as Obamacare success story frustrated by sign up process
"Back in October, Sanford had written a letter to the White House to share her good news. The 48-year-old single mother of a teenage son diagnosed with ADHD had just purchased what she considered to be affordable insurance on the Washington state exchange.
'I was ecstatic. I couldn't wait to call the doctor for an appointment on January 2nd,' Sanford told CNN about the feeling she had when she first enrolled.
Her heartfelt letter made it to the President's hands and then into his October 21 speech."
"But then, after Obama mentioned her story, Sanford started having problems. Sanford said she received another letter informing her the Washington state health exchange had miscalculated her eligibility for a tax credit."
"Last week, Sanford received another letter from the Washington state exchange, stating there had been another problem"
"A cheaper 'bronze' plan, Sanford said, came in at $324 per month, but also with a high deductible – also not in her budget.
Then another letter from the state exchange with even worse news.
'Your household has been determined eligible for a Federal Tax Credit of $0.00'"
"'This is it. I'm not getting insurance,' Sanford told CNN. 'That's where it stands right now unless they fix it.'
Sanford, an Obama supporter who voted for the president twice, is careful to say she blames the state of Washington's online marketplace for the mixed signals and not the White House.'"
"'I feel awful about it. I support (the Affordable Care Act),' Sanford said."
"Sanford reiterated her frustration in a post to the Washington HealthPlanFinder's Facebook page last Friday.
'Wow. You guys really screwed me over,'
Sanford wrote. 'Now I have been priced out and will not be able to afford the plans you offer. But, I get to pay $95 and up for not having health insurance.'"

"But because our military has grown so remote from most Americans’ lives, many civilians are unsure how to express their gratitude toward their warriors. Here’s how:
If you see an guy in a ball cap that reads 'World War II Vet,' 'Korea Vet' or 'Vietnam Vet,' ask about it. Make sure your kids listen. These heroes won’t be with us forever, and their stories need to be told. I remember speaking at a function and sitting next to an unassuming gentleman who turned out to have landed at Normandy. For a military guy, this was like being a garage band guitarist who got seated next to Pete Townsend. "
Some fairly good advice for the anti-abortion crowd. Hey Pro-Lifers: Six Things NOT to Do To End Abortion
The biggest thing the "pro-life" crowd can do, in my opinion, is 1) Quit relating EVERYTHING to abortion & 2) focus on late term. I get it, all "abortion is murder". I disagree, but okay. Regardless, minds can be swayed at six months, when there is no rational denial it's a baby. Focus there. Win. THEN figure out the next step. Or keep turning people off.

Maybe they’re wising up to them not being solid role models, but rather cautionary tales."

Again, he passed on this option, an option that would have greatly increased the possibility of a Republican winning the seat with some coat tails from Christie.

There’s an inherent mechanism at work to overload the states Medicaid systems. By decimating health-care insurers and overloading Medicaid, the system collapses, with nowhere to turn, leading to single payer. Get it? Medicaid is a single-payer system."
"The revolutionaries are running a well-greased machine to create financial and social chaos and riots.

"Every business day since May 17, the U.S. Treasury has published a daily statement claiming that the federal debt subject to the limit set by Congress closed the day at $16,699,396,000,000—about $25 million below the legal limit."
It's fraud. But why not? No one will call them on it. But eventually there will be a collapse.

"As for the House of Representatives’ right to grant or withhold money, that is not a matter of opinion either. You can check the Constitution of the United States. All spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives, which means that congressmen there have a right to decide whether they want to spend money on a particular government activity.
Whether ObamaCare is good, bad or indifferent is a matter of opinion. But it is a matter of fact that members of the House of Representatives have a right to make spending decisions based on their opinion."Kidnapped Libyan prime minister pays the price for an Obama leak
"Leaks have consequences. Just ask Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, who was kidnapped in retaliation for allowing the United States to carry out a special operations raid in Tripoli that captured a senior al-Qaeda leader, Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, known as Abu Anas al-Libi.
How did the kidnappers know that the prime minister had approved the raid? After all, his government denied any prior knowledge of the U.S. action. Simple: The Obama administration told them."Fox News Shutdown! Jay Carney Won't Call on Ed Henry, So He Walks Out of Briefing

"When Mr. Obama became president in January 2009, the total federal debt stood at $10.6 trillion. This week, it hit $16.7 trillion — an increase of 57 percent.</a>
"In the increasingly contentious showdown with Congress, Mr. Obama also is fond of pointing out that budget deficits — the annual red ink that contributes to the total debt — have been falling at the fastest pace in 60 years. That’s true largely because spending rose dramatically in his first term as the administration tried to blunt the impact of the Great Recession."

I'm listening to Levin's Friday show. He's replaying Reagan's A Time for Choosing speech. SOmething struck me that I'd forgotten all about. Does this sound familiar?
Now -- we're for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we've accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem. But we're against those entrusted with this pr
ogram when they practice deception regarding its fiscal shortcomings, when they charge that any criticism of the program means that we want to end payments to those people who depend on them for a livelihood. They've called it "insurance" to us in a hundred million pieces of literature. But then they appeared before the Supreme Court and they testified it was a welfare program. They only use the term "insurance" to sell it to the people. And they said Social Security dues are a tax for the general use of the government, and the government has used that tax. There is no fund, because Robert Byers, the actuarial head, appeared before a congressional committee and admitted that Social Security as of this moment is 298 billion dollars in the hole. But he said there should be no cause for worry because as long as they have the power to tax, they could always take away from the people whatever they needed to bail them out of trouble. And they're doing just that.
Fast forward to now:
They swore it was a penalty, but SCOTUS ruled it's only constitutional as a tax, so they said okay, and call it a penalty in a hundred million pieces of literature still.
We were conned with a fifty year old con (and know where that con leads us)... and NONE of the GOP thought to mention this?

In a rare monologue at the end of the show, Stewart said he remained confused and that he suspected that the secretary may have been lying to him.
“I still don’t understand why individuals have to sign up and businesses don’t, because if the businesses — if she’s saying, ‘well, they get a delay because that doesn’t matter anyway because they already give health care,’ then you think to yourself, ‘fuck it, then why do they have to sign up at all,’” he said. “And then I think to myself, ‘well, maybe she’s just lying to me.’”
Yes, Jon. That's all these fucking scum and their supporters do.

"If you have any friends in the Washington DC area ask them if they’ve ever heard of incompetent workers (at an agency) not being fired but instead told to sit at a desk somewhere and read a book or surf the internet until retirement. Everyone in Washington has a version of this story. The reason? It happens all the time.
Again, the federal worker’s relaxing afternoon is paid for by you, the American taxpayer.
And, it’s not like these folks are paid a pittance for their supremely stable employment. There is a good chance, in fact, that these workers are paid more than you. On average federal employee total compensation runs over $120,000."
"How many of you have seen a 5% cut in pay over the past 4 years? How many of you wish that it had only been 5%? But like I said there is no recession here, and why should federal workers feel any pain at all during an economic depression? That sort of thing is strictly for those out in the hinterlands."House GOP Taking Steps to Fund Our Government Mike Lee Reveals Details of the ‘All-Out’, ‘Demeaning’ Attack Against Him and Ted Cruz…During Meeting with Republican Senators

And I think they do want to go into default.'”Mike’s Financial Pocket — Debt Ceiling Theater
"More jobs will stimulate the economy and generate more tax revenue for the government without attempting to increase the tax burden on the productive members of society. The reason why the debt limit was not increased much under President Clinton is because the economy in the mid to late 1990s was expanding thanks to tax cuts and — combined with the largesse from the internet boom and bubble burst — the tax revenues reaped helped the U.S. financial situation.
Of course, government can’t create jobs other than government jobs. So, the solution is to reduce regulations. I have written briefly on how government regulation over the years has choked off private sector job growth. Obamacare is the latest and greatest (read: worst) example of costly government regulation slowing down job growth. If we are serious about growing the private sector to generate jobs, economic growth, and economic activity — we need to reduce regulations."AM INTERNET: The Blueprint for Defeating Web Media Bias Already Exists

These are horrible viewership numbers for even cable and yet to media circles and Twitter, these are two of the most powerful figures in modern day pop culture and politics. The reason is not because college kids and millennials sit down and watch Jon Stewart every night. It’s because they watch clips from the show on the web the next day from websites like Buzzfeed and Mediaite and Reddit with the accompanying headline “amazing amazing no words amazing something” and then spread them through viral media such as Facebook and Twitter."Benghazi’s Al Qaeda Connection

Gut Check: The Right Way to Rebel
"You're different. You don't instantly agree with them. Their assumptions are no longer yours. Maybe, secretly, they never were. But now, you find yourself the odd man out as they rant, they rave, they ridicule.
You realize--in a quiet, private moment--that you aren't a liberal. What next?"
"And I know--I know--you've never considered, ever, that you might be a conservative. Because, for the longest time, being a conservative was met with edgy derision and mockery. "
"The idea that conservatives are somehow more intolerant and angry than liberals is a lie. Both have their fair share, but the nature of conservatives is 'live and let live.' It's a shame that a few of them still don't get that part. But all in all, the oddballs are oddly cool."
"How do you make that transition from left to right? How do you accept that you are now the hated? The reviled? The dork? The hater of women, minorities, and women minorities? Should you even bother, if bothering means you'll be smeared as a racist? Is it better just to walk out of one group and avoid the other? Disown any identification and remove yourself from such ideological battles? That would be easy, if you did not live in a liberal world. But if you do live there, then what do you do? How do you come out of the closet, as a rightie, without ruining your life?
By asking that question, you answer it. The animus directed at one who leaves the fold explains the value of the journey out. Its struggle dictates the meaning. The slings and arrows one experiences means, quite simply, that you are onto something."
"For that alone, your change is worth it. There is nothing more rebellious, truly, than turning right. There is nothing more daring than standing alone, facing the onslaught of a smirking media, and saying, 'Here I am, I am not you.' There is nothing edgier than saying to the edgy, 'You lie. You are as edgy as a frisbee.'
