Could it be – he LIED?
No, lie is obviously too strong a word, otherwise the US media wouldn’t have any problem using it.
All along, the Obama administration has consistently been playing down the US federal debt numbers, calling it “less than projected,” while the compliant media dutifully reported his claim that he would “halve the US debt by the end of his first term.”
Strangely, even as Obama pledged to cut the debt by $1.3 trillion, the CBO just released a report showing Obama thus far is spending over $1 trillion more than he pledged to cut, and $2.3 trillion more than he projected he would over ten years. An increase of $1 trillion dollars per year – not much of a reduction there.
Asked by Ben “Big” Feller of AP back in February about just his 2012 budget, Obama tripped the “Lie Meter” by saying “We will not be adding more to the national debt. It’s — so, to use a — sort of, an analogy that families are familiar with, we’re not going to be running up the credit card anymore.”
Oops, lied wrong again.
On January 8, 2011, an unbalanced follower of the left-wing Zeitgeist movement, Jared Loughner, targeting Democrat Rep Gabrielle Giffords at a Safeway in Tucson, sprayed bullets through the crowd of constituents, killing 6, and injuring 13. In the wake of that horror, the left blamed Sarah Palin, and the tea party, saying their uncivil rhetoric led to the senseless tragedy, and the MSM advanced the narrative in their reports. The National Institute For Civil Discourse was launched by former Presidents Clinton and Bush I at the University of AZ in Tucson for “debate, research, education and policy generation regarding civic engagement and civility in public discourse consistent with First Amendment principles”. As liberals used the unfortunate incident to call for a “new tone” in Washington, conservatives suspected that somehow the focus would only be on their tone, while libs would continue using uncivil and unhinged rhetoric unabated.
As the past few months have demonstrated, conservative suspicions have proven correct. The Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse was set up to track just how uncivil the left can be, and the double standard that exists in the reporting of left-wing incivility and violence.
The New Tone Award is reserved for liberal notables who spectacularly fail in the area of “civility in discourse”:
You can place your vote, here.
First, Gay activist groups try and co-opt the civil rights movement to help with getting the definition of marriage changed in state constitutions… now, the Unions are co-opting the civil rights movement and invoking Martin Luther King while ascribing false motives to the man.
The AFL-CIO is planning nationwide protests against states curbing union benefits, and as part of their call to action, the group published a blog post asking for solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, saying “right-wing politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for.”
Lisa Fritsch, a Tea Party supporter, calls this an “ugly comparison that is completely invalid” and she tells Neil why.

Growing up in Missouri and loving baseball one could not help but become a St. Louis Cardinals fan during the eighties.
The team was filled with the athletes who were not known for hitting home runs but for their quickness, fundamental soundness and doing their job consistently day in and down out.
This strategy, known as playing “small ball” is fairly well known in the baseball community and believe it or not, is highly applicable to the budget situation facing our federal government.
While many of us are looking for the long ball for cutting into our massive budget, which would be admittedly nice, let’s not box ourselves into that singular position. We cannot forget that Republicans control exactly one of the two legislative branches and last I checked Obama was still president.
For those who believe that President Obama and Senate Democrats are going to suddenly get debt religion and make the necessary cuts and defund programs which desperately need gutting, think again.
Those hurdles do not mean we should trip over our selves making concessions to Democrats in an effort to satisfy the daily headlines coming out of Washington, DC. In fact that is the very mentality voters spoke against last November.
So, what should we do?
[Excerpt from Video: "Do you believe that the manifestation of Islam will be established? Do you believe that the shari'a will dominate? Do you believe that democracy will come under our feet, that we will destroy America, that we will destroy Britain, that all of these leaders will be under our feet? Do you believe that? Because if you believe that, I will see it in your actions!
When they [non-Muslims] speak about shari’a, when they speak about the da’awah, when they speak about the Muslims, when they speak about Jihad, we should be proud to say that we are from the nation of the Prophet of Muhammad. Whatever you people [non-Muslims] represent, we will destroy it with our own hands, and we will establish Islam over your noses. This is the truth, my dear Muslims! This is the way that we need to be.
We need to start to raise the banner of Islam, my dear Muslims. Yes, even in the UK, we need to raise the banner of Islam. We need to start calling for shari’a on the streets of the UK. From Mecca to Al-Madina, from the UK to Saudi Arabia, we want to establish Islam, we want to see Islam dominant. These are the aspirations of those who believe.”]
Quite simply the worst television personality in the history of history, Lawrence O’Donnell told his 10 viewers that the Bible (specifically the book of revelations) is a “work of fiction”:
The book of Revelation is a work of fiction describing how a truly vicious God would bring about the end of the world. No half-smart religious person actually believes the book of Revelation. They are certain that their God would never turn into a malicious torturer and mass murderer beyond Hitler’s wildest dreams. Glenn Beck, of course, does believe the book of Revelation.
Here’s Becks response:
MSNBC Host Lawrence O’Donnell said on his show that the Bible, specifically the book of Revelation, is a “work of fiction” to portrays God as a mass murderer beyond Hitler’s wildest dreams.
“I believe that MSNBC has become the most anti‑god network ever put on the air in the history of America,” Glenn said on radio this morning.
Glenn then tossed to audio from Lawrence O’Donnell, who flat out calls the Bible fiction and twists comments made by Glenn.
O’Donnel begins, “The Book of Revelation is a book of fiction describing how a vicious God would bring about the end of the world. No half smart religious person believes the Book of Revelation anymore.”
Glenn certainly didn’t agree with this, as he and Pat both stated that the Book of Revelation was God saying “this is what it is going to look like”. “He’s giving us this in advance to say when you see these things, have hope that I am coming soon. That’s what he’s saying and it’s not the end of the world. The world goes on a thousand years, God time, a thousand years after he comes back. This is not the end of the world. That’s the way people like Lawrence O’Donnell try to twist it,” Glenn said.
“No half smart religious person believes what you said about the Book of Revelation,” Pat said in reference to O’Donnell.
As O’Donnell continued, he omitted that much of the violence and murder was committed by the Anti-Christ, not God.
“I guess if you’re Lawrence O’Donnell, you expect God‑‑ again, here’s that mentality that he must undo all the wrong being done, that we can have no opposition, no tragedy and have no catastrophe happen to us,” Pat said.
“Yes, he does. You know why? Because progressives believe that they are God. They will have collective salvation and they will fix everything,” Glenn said.
“So Glenn Beck is saying he doesn’t know, he doesn’t know if the nuclear crisis in Japan is signaling the imminent end of the world. If Bill O’Reilly is going to use the word hype and not the words Glenn Beck in the same sent he’s in, Billy Boy’s analysis is surprisingly as empty‑headed as usual. Glenn Beck doesn’t know if this is the end of the world,” O’Donnell said, twisting Glenn’s words.
Obviously suffering from some sort of inferirority complex, O’Donnel then begged for Glenn’s audience to watch him instead. ““Why would anyone listen to a guy who doesn’t know if this is the end of the world,” he asked, “when there’s another guy on MSNBC at eight every night who can tell you with absolute certainty, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this is not the end of the world? What do I have to do, change the name of the show to ‘The This is Not the End of the World Show with Lawrence O’Donnell?’”
(editor’s note: While O’Donnell appears to be desperate to have Glenn’s audience, even willing to change the name of his show to increase ratings, we doubt anything can really save MSNBC.)
Tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM, I will have the honor of being the featured guest on Da Tech Guy’s awesome radio show. If any of you guys have some free time on Saturday morning, I would greatly appreciate it if you could give us a listen–or, even call in if you think of a question that you would like to ask one of us. We will be discussing all of the recent on-goings at The Minority Report, the Libyan crisis, and the sad, horrific murder of an Israeli family by Palestinian terrorists.
Take care, and I look forward to hearing from you all tomorrow morning!
Sincerely, Susannah Fleetwood
Washington, D.C . – Last year, House Republicans, led by Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), carried out a national effort to listen to the voices of the people and produce a new governing agenda based on America’s priorities. This initiative, America Speaking Out, led to the introduction of the Pledge to America, a policy agenda built by listening and focused on creating jobs and cutting spending. While working hard to implement the Pledge, House Republicans are setting out to start a fresh dialogue about one of the fundamental challenges we face: our nation’s spending and debt crisis, which is hampering our ability to create jobs. During this constituent work period, members will be engaging their constituents about the scale and scope of the problem, as well as exploring possible solutions to put us back on a responsible fiscal path. In a new video posted today on AmericaSpeakingOut.com, Whip McCarthy explains that solving a challenge of this size cannot be done without the participation of the American people. Once again, he wants Americans to speak out – online and at member events – about how we can work together to ensure America remains prosperous and strong. Whip McCarthy’s video message can be found below, along with the transcript.
The internet has had a liberating impact for humanity. It allows the average person access to more information faster than kings and presidents of old. It is a platform for everyone from Charlie Sheen to protesters in Egypt to express themselves.
The internet is also unforgiving. The teenage girl who decides to make a few hundred bucks posing unclad in front of a camera may find that image googled during a job interview. The intemperate e-mail sent in anger will find itself forwarded to thousands. And if you choose to make threats, don’t think you will be able to hide behind an assumed name. A great example of this took place on St. Patrick’s day last.
During the late unpleasantness in Wisconsin, blogger Ann Althouse (who lives in the area) and her husband Lawrence Meade provided invaluable coverage, interviewing protesters and providing video that showed what was actually happening. It allowed millions to bypass the MSM who choose to whitewash the protests and their aftermath.
Opponents of Governor Walker, unable to filter Ann’s coverage were unhappy. One in particular, incensed at the videos, posted a threatening outburst so profane it was an effort to find a usable piece:

The victim disarmament crowd is about to get its collective butts kicked by a “soft spoken and small in stature, Amanda Collins,” who tells how she was “defenseless when serial rapist and convicted murderer James Biela attacked her in a University of Nevada Reno parking garage.”
Collins will testify in support of SB 231, sponsored by Sen. John Lee (D-North Las Vegas), which would allow citizens to carry concealed weapons on college campuses in Nevada.
As Elizabeth Crum of the Nevada News Bureau reports, “Collins said she would have been carrying her firearm and would have defended herself that night had campus rules permitted it.” And if you don’t think her story is going to have a powerful influence on this bill, and that the gun-control crowd is about to get a huge black eye, consider Ms. Collins very personal and very direct statements:
“I know at some point during my attack I could have stopped it. Had I been able to do so, two other rapes would have been prevented and a life could have been saved. . . . Had SB 231 been the current law, my family and myself would have been saved a lot of torment. Because of the fact that I was rendered defenseless, this man was allowed to be at large and to continue to rape other women in the community, and consequently he murdered a young woman as well.”
On the other hand, Gregory Brown, a lily-livered wet noodle $136,896-a-year (Hat tip: Transparent Nevada) French Cultural History professor at UNLV, argued earlier this week against the bill, actually writing that university crime statistics show “show that NSHE’s campuses are not unsafe.” He goes on to write that “the best way to enhance the safety, and well-being…of Nevada’s students is to find adequate funding to preserve access and quality in our System of Higher Education.”
In light of what happened to Ms. Collins, you just want to b*tch-slap this idiot.
The Second Amendment isn’t about hunting deer; it’s about stopping potential human predators. Sen. Lee ought to name SB 231 the Amanda Collins Self-Protection Act and then dare any of his colleagues to give her anything other than a 21-0 vote in the Senate and 42-0 vote in the Assembly.
