Greg Gutfeld responds to F. Chuck Todd on media bias


Greg Gutfeld of Fox’s “The Five” responded to Chuck Todd’s hilarious assertion that the media doesn’t have a left-leaning bias….

I really love the Palmolive quip…..LOL

“But I guess if you believe in an objective media, you’ll believe in anything:  like a whistle is better than a gun; redistribution beats opportunity; black  conservatives are Uncle Toms and female conservatives are scolds; that being  born white is racist; that tolerance requires calling terror ‘workplace  violence’; that our country’s energy can be found in griffin lint; that the tea  party is more harmful than drug lords; that Occupy Wall Streeters were cuddly  Muppets; that choice matters before birth, not after; that a border is selfish;  that every tenet of the left hasn’t saddled most young Americans with a toxic  notion of entitlement without achievement, drowning in disposable culture as  China rifles our wallets and our hard drives. But it’s easy to miss media bias.  To quote Madge from Palmolive [commercials], ‘You don’t see it my dear, because  you’re soaking in it.’”

Examiner: The #Obama You Don’t Know (ie because the #MSM won’t tell you) #corruption #Chicagomachine


“But beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.”

#Obama in 2008 slanders half the country by calling them “bitter clingers” #romneyencore


Of course the Obama-media will pounce on the truth-teller Romney’s comments in the “gotcha” video….

But don’t we all remember when Obama slandered half of the country back in 2008 with his “bitter clingers” remark — a remark that was secretly taped?  Where was the heavy breathing by the media on that one saying “Obama’s lost the race”?

Such hypocrisy….and Obama’s comment wasn’t even factual or remotely true.  Romney’s was.

Here’s Obama trashing half of the country (or more) while being taped back in 2008:

Text of comments:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them….And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Just throw this back in the faces of the Obama-lovers in the media and elsewhere when they try to trash Romney for stating the obvious.
The double-standards and dishonesty are breathtaking in the media (and on the Left).

@jackmcoldcuts, “I’m Angry”, too, about Obama’s fiascos in #Libya and #Egypt


All day, I’ve been wanting to sum up my thoughts about the anniversary of 9-11 yesterday and the events surrounding it.

News of the terrorism in Libya and Egypt and the death of our ambassador in Libya ( and 3 other Americans) made me angry.  News of Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu added to my anger.

The further frothing at the mouth of the MSM (and proof of MSM collaboration against Romney) because Romney dared to criticize the empty foreign policy of the “Empty Chair” president sent my thoughts and anger in high gear today.

I am disgusted at a President who used military force, without Congressional approval and against the War Powers Act, in order to remove Gaddafi from Libya and to aid in the ouster of Mubarak in Egypt—-both less-than-stellar men, but leaders who, at least, were mostly in sync with America  in the region.  Now Obama’s so-called “Arab Spring” has turned into a nasty, ruthless “Winter”…..and the Obama administration defends the perpetrators of violence (the one’s he allowed into power) by apologizing for American free speech.  Those perpetrators later murdered our ambassador and other Americans.

But I’m not sure anything further I can write will top what Ace of Spades blogger Jack M. (@jackmcoldcuts) expressed.  Without further adieu and in its entirety:

I was watching the “news” accounts of the ongoing Obama-fiasco in Libya and Egypt this morning, and I couldn’t help but come to one headline/twitter friendly conclusion:

“Obama Apologized. American Ambassador Eulogized. First Amendment Marginalized.”

Perhaps I should add a subsidiary clause to the phrase: maybe something like “Media Sanitized” in reference to the way they are scrambling to protect their precious president as he speaks softly and stumblingly slams his little stick in the Muslim Brotherhood’s front door.

But I’m not writing this post to focus on media bias. Others do that, and they do it better than I do. I’m writing this post for a different reason.

I’m angry.

Continue reading

I’m angry at a hypocritical, feckless President who personally spikes the football over Bin Laden’s death while his state department apologizes to Islamists for the exertion of similar First Amendment rights by other Americans who aren’t lucky enough to be anointed god-kings.

I’m angry that a posturing, empty-suit of a president lectures Americans on “denigrating religious views” when he is on record as referring to Americans of faith as “bitter clingers”, and when he has campaign surrogates attacking his opponent for being a Mormon.

I’m angry that our stroke-addled, possibly brain-damaged Vice President describes 9/11 as a “bittersweet” day, as our embassies are burning and Americans are being killed.

I’m angry over the fact that we spent blood and treasure in Obama’s “Lead from Behind Libyan Adventure” only to see our Ambassador murdered and dragged thru the streets by the very people Obama placed in power.

I’m angry that we helped force an ally out in Egypt knowing he’d be replaced  with an Al-Qaeda friendly government that enjoyed watching its minions take the first symbolic opportunity they had to burn our flag and replace it with Al-Qaeda’s.

I’m angry that at a time when Al-Qaeda’s flag flies over the Cairo embassy, the mis-administration prepares to forgive over $1 BILLION in Egyptian debt.

I’m angry that “Pimp With A Limp” gets to talk to the president, while Bibi Netanyahu, whose allied country faces a potential nuclear annihilation, gets to talk to the hand.

I’m angry that the gut instinct of this mis-Administration is to sympathize with and excuse those who hold our fundamental values in contempt as those same people actively seek any pretext they can find to slaughter us where we stand.

I’m angry that the mis-Administration’s paltry response to a region-wide attack on America, which is, incidentally, what this is, is to deploy 50 Marines to Libya and jet-off to a Vegas fundraiser while preparing a top-ten list for Letterman’s show.

I’m angry that the cornerstone freedoms of speech and religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution are so routinely dismissed and mocked by this mis-Administration. 1st Amendment freedom of speech? “Not if it hurts feelings” we are told. Freedom of religion? “Not if it stands between our mis-Administration and giving Sandra Fluke a free abortion should she want one” we are hectored.

But with four Americans dead, our flag burning, and our embassies trashed, you know what really makes me angry?

Our president isn’t.

Think about that fact.

Our president isn’t. He read a bland and bloodless set of prepared remarks for 10 minutes, hid behind Hillary Clinton’s ever-widening skirt, took no questions, and then thought the best thing he could do would be to hit the Vegas strip.

The truth is this: yesterday I read that the President’s team came out swinging against the “2016:Obama’s America” movie.

They didn’t like the way the president was portrayed. So they attacked Dinesh D’souza and, for some reason, Tea Partiers.

Here is the language they used on BarackObama.com:

“It should say enough about D’Souza’s credibility that a movie catering to the Tea Party attacks someone for allegedly ‘anti-colonial’ views,” the entry reads. “His attempts to hide his lies behind pseudo-scholarly presentation and glossy production values cannot withstand basic scrutiny. The facts show that 2016: Obama’s America is nothing more than an insidious attempt to dishonestly smear the President by giving intellectual cover to the worst in subterranean conspiracy theories and false, partisan attacks.”

That’s tougher than anything Obama said in response to the death of an American ambassador, his staff, or the attack on our embassy grounds.

Which I guess suggests a lesson of sorts. Like those who attacked our embassies and killed our personnel, Obama seems to get riled up by movies that make a point of smearing a self-proclaimed false-messianic prophet.

We can do better. We have to do better. I’m doing all I can to vent my anger into something constructive. I hope you’ll join me.

Russian warships at DNC? Really? #DNC #Obama


Does no one in the Democratic Party have a grasp on our military and its history?

While retired Adm. John Nathman, a former commander of Fleet Forces Command, honored vets as America’s best, the ships from the Russian Federation Navy were arrayed like sentinels on the big screen above.

This is what you get, I suppose, Admiral, when you choose to support the anti-military party in America.

Waiting on the MSM to cover this major gaffe…..in 3…2…1…

#Obamanomics and a Democrats No-Profit Dream: #GM loses $49,000 on each Volt built #DNC #GMFiction #Obama


If you were tuned into anything other than the Obama News Networks (ie NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, NPR) last week during the DNC, you might have caught a glimpse of the viral video that outlined the absolute economic ignorance of the creatures we call Democrats.

When DNC attendees were asked in varying ways about profits and “if they should be outlawed”, the answer was a resounding “YES”.

Depressing, yes I know.

So today, news is out via Reuters that GM’s loses as much as $49,000 on each Chevy Volt it builds.

“Nearly two years after the introduction of the path-breaking plug-in hybrid, GM is still losing as much as $49,000 on each Volt it builds, according to estimates provided to Reuters by industry analysts and manufacturing experts.

Aside from the fact that many people go out of their way now to avoid buying GM on principle (i.e. government has taken it over and taxpayers have lost millions in bailing them out), the hassles (battery, costs, plug-ins, etc as outlined in Reuters article) are a turn-off to many who need ease and dependency in their choice of automobiles.

Of course, this disaster of a car falls right in line with Obama’s “green energy at all costs” policies….That policy is summed up as “let’s force/offer tax-payer-funded incentives for this very expensive-to-build car onto people who don’t want it so we can feel good about ourselves.”

“I don’t see how General Motors will ever get its money back on that vehicle,” countered Sandy Munro, president of Michigan-based Munro & Associates, which performs detailed tear-down analyses of vehicles and components for global manufacturers and the U.S. government.

It currently costs GM “at least” $75,000 to build the Volt, including development costs, Munro said. That’s nearly twice the base price of the Volt before a $7,500 federal tax credit provided as part of President Barack Obama’s green energy policy.

And let’s not forget that Obama has highly touted the Volt and has given $50 Billion further taxpayer money in an effort to force us into his idea of cars and the economics of purchasing one….
His idea?  You get a green car, but the taxpayer, customer, and the car  manufacturers will pay through the nose with another type of green to get one.

The Obama administration, which engineered a $50-billion taxpayer rescue (“TAKEOVER”) of GM from bankruptcy in 2009 and has provided more than $5 billion in subsidies for green-car development, praised the Volt as an example of the country’s commitment to building more fuel-efficient cars.

(my correction in red/CAPS)

And let’s not forget that the Obama myth of “saving the auto industry” with unprofitable cars, government takeover/control, and $5 billion subsidies also has led to a $25 billion loss for taxpayers.

The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent higher than its previous forecast.

The government still holds 500 million shares of GM stock and needs to sell them for about $53 each to recover its entire $49.5 billion bailout.

Further, this unprofitablility via Obamanomics seems to be what the Democrat party wishes for. (Watch the above video again.)

Don’t ever  believe the lie that Obama saved GM and the auto industry.  He did quite the opposite.  And he wants to do it to other industries.

From the “You didn’t build that” speech:

“I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.

Obama spent $50 billion of our taxpayer dollars to takeover GM — we, as taxpayers,  have lost $25 billion of that.  He plowed another $5 billion into “green energy” for the car industry and now the very car (the Volt) that he touts as the future will never be profitable.

Sounds like a Democrat, unprofitable dream product to me. (but not to constitutional, capitalist Americans.)

We can’t have this anti-capitalist, communistic thinking for another 4 years.

On Paul Ryan’s speech, Sally Kohn’s Fact Checker needs Fact Checking #PaulRyanVP #RNC2012


Sally Kohn has written a factless opinion piece on FoxNews.com today supposedly outlining how Ryan deceived everyone last night.  Her whole piece is really inaccurate and full of distractions, but the Left, as I saw on Michael Grimm’s (Rep-NY 13) Facebook page today, is using this piece as some definitive rebuttal of Ryan.

I’ll take a few of them and give you the fact-checking of Sally Kohn’s lack thereof:

Kohn’s “fact“: Though Paul Ryan accused President Obama of taking $716 billion out of Medicare, the  fact  is that amount was savings in Medicare reimbursement rates (which,  incidentally, save Medicare recipients out-of-pocket costs, too) and Ryan himself embraced these savings in  his budget plan.

THE TRUTH:

Obama did CUT $716 Billion from Medicare in order to fund Obamacare.
Further, the plan Ryan put forth, which is not Romney’s plan BTW, did not use those funds for a new entitlement, but rather to extend the solvency of the Medicare program.  They don’t harm Medicare but rather help to save it.  Further in Ryan’s plan, those over 55 ARE NOT affected by any of it…so the Obama campaign lie that it Ryan’s plan will cost seniors is just that….a lie.
A large portion of the cuts that Obama has made lower the amount doctors are paid under Medicare….and Obama’s own actuary admits that these cuts will make several providers “unprofitable” and likely not able to sustain their business.   This does DIRECTLY affect seniors when they can no longer get the providers they need.

Kohn’s “fact”: While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville,  Wisconsin, the plant  was actually closed under President George W. Bush.  Ryan actually asked for federal spending to save the plant, while Romney has  criticized the auto industry bailout that President Obama ultimately enacted to  prevent other plants from closing.

THE TRUTH:
MSNBC and others hyperventilated after Ryan’s speech last night with a lie that the Wisconsin GM plant closed down in 2008. Not true. That plant closed in 2009 giving Obama PLENTY of time to fulfill his campaign promise to keep it open.  Ryan was spot-on accurate in Obama’s broken promise and the lie that is still told today by Obama that GM was “saved” by him.

Kohn’s “fact”:  While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on  spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded  because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling.

THE TRUTH:

The credit rating was lowered because the credit agencies didn’t see a meaningful move toward a BALANCED BUDGET.  Since the Senate has not passed a budget and Obama’s budget was defeated with NO votes in the House or Senate, the agencies have a valid concern…..and S&P does not mention anything about “raising the debt ceiling as Kohn insists.  According to S&P, the downgrade occurred because “the government budget deficit of more than 11 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), and net government debt rising to about 80 percent or more of GDP by 2013, to be high relative to other “AAA” countries…..meaningful progress towards balancing the budget would be required to move the U.S. back to a “stable” outlook” (that is a direct quote from MSNBC on Wikipedia, however MSNBC has removed the contents of their article regarding this…fancy that!)
