Oreilly is a polarizing figure and so is online gaming, especially at Begado Casino. There are advocates in Congress proposing a federal law, but Republican detractors. This, according to a supporter of Steve and, who runs a Begado Fan Blog. The conservative approach is to stick to legitimate gaming certifications and brands like Begado, says Zachary Gleason.

The Tuesday 7-29-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 30, 2014 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: The Threats to America Grow. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: In a provocation the United States has not seen since the Vietnam War, the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is trying to humiliate Barack Obama. Apparently the Russians have now violated a 1987 treaty by testing a new type of cruise missile. Also, Putin continues to attack Ukraine and Russian allies continue to block the investigation of the downed Malaysian airliner.

So today President Obama imposed new sanctions on Russia. Mr. Obama also said Europe will impose more sanctions, but don't hold your breath on that. The Europeans have acted cowardly in the face of Putin's aggression. President Obama had to take the action today because all around him things are going south in a hurry. In Israel, fighting between Hamas and the Israelis continues and the USA is powerless to stop the carnage.

In Iran, negotiations over nuclear weapons continue because the Obama administration has given that country nearly $3 billion to stay at the table. In Iraq, intelligence reports say that the ISIS army, a vicious offshoot of Al Qaeda, is poised to attack Baghdad. These jihadists are murdering Christians in the streets, but President Obama has taken no action at all.

In Afghanistan, a report says the Obama administration can not account for 750,000 weapons given to Afghan forces. In Libya, the USA has now closed its embassy in Tripoli because security is so terrible. Finally, on the southern border, the chaos continues as U.S. authorities can not stop the flow of illegal aliens into this country.

On just about every front there is danger - terrorism is growing, there is a mini-war in the Middle East, Iran will most likely get a nuclear weapon, and Putin is causing an enormous amount of trouble. President Obama still has his supporters who spin the situation his way, but his foreign policy has failed miserably.

It is long past time for all Americans to demand that the federal government admit failure and devise effective strategies to protect us and other people around the world. Talking Points is sounding the alarm and all of us should take this very seriously.
Which is just laughable, because no matter what policy a President has he can not force world leaders in other countries to do what we want them to. And the more we stick our nose in the business of foreign countries the more we invite terrorist attacks on Americans abroad and on American soil. As usual, O'Reilly is a neo-con fool, and remember he was all wrong about Iraq, now he wants you to listen to him on foreign policy, not me.

Then Monica Crowley and Kirsten Powers were on to evaluate the Talking Points Memo and the threats to America.

Powers said this: "I agree with you that there is a lot of chaos around the world, but I tend to feel there is generally chaos in the world. There were plenty of horrible things happening when Reagan was in power, so I think it's a little unfair to lay all of this at Obama's feet."

Crowley said this: "Reagan was about restoring American power and prestige, but what you have now is President Obama presiding over the collapse of American power and prestige. The international world has always been dominated by chaos, and the only time you get any relative order and peace is when there is a dominant power, when the United States is perceived as strong. This president has allowed our enemies to advance, abandoned our allies, and gutted our military."

Then Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn were on to talk about the New York Times editorial calling for legalization of marijuana.

Kurtz said this: "I agree that the editorial page underplayed the potential impact. But with two states having legalized pot, with medicinal marijuana being widely used, and with 54% of Americans saying they favor legalization, this isn't some wacky hallucination."

Ashburn said this: "This is an Upper West Side mentality, people thinking their opinion is right and cherry-picking studies that buttress their argument."

Then Kimberly Guilfoyle & Lis Wiehl were on to talk about former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has won his defamation lawsuit against the widow of famed Navy sniper Chris Kyle. The war of words began when Kyle claimed that Ventura had slandered the American military and Navy SEALS.

A case that O'Reilly, Wiehl, and Guilfoyle all predicted Ventura would lose, so once again they were all wrong, but they do not mention that.

Wiehl said this: "This is unbelievable. The jury believed Jesse Ventura to the point of $1.8 million, which is the judgment. Eight out of ten jurors found that Kyle lied."

Guilfoyle said this: "You didn't have the live testimony from Kyle, and Ventura is a larger-than-life personality, very brazen and bold. Ventura should be ashamed to take money out of this widow's pocket, he should refuse the award."

O'Reilly said this: "I thought that anyone would sympathize with the widow of Chris Kyle, and I wanted to believe that what Chris Kyle told me on this program was true."

Then the far-right neo-con Charles Krauthammer (who was also dead wrong on Iraq) was on to analyze the the O'Reilly TPM and the many threats facing the world. And of course no Democratic guest was on for balance.

Krauthammer said this: "Iran going nuclear could be the greatest threat of all. We have an administration that has just paid Iran $11.8 billion to engage in six months of negotiations that ended with nothing, and now we're paying $2.8 billion to give us another four months of useless negotiations. Even if we end up with an agreement, I guarantee it will leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state. I think that is the biggest of all threats because terror at the nuclear level could give us unbelievable destruction."

Krauthammer also said this: "The thing that has held the world together, the thing that has maintained the freedom of the free world, has been the United States. But now the world is looking around and asking, where is America?"

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: Dangers of Fanaticism. Billy said this: "If you're a political zealot or fanatic, you're likely to avoid entire arenas of discussion and may miss out on opportunities to learn and grow."

O'Reilly Claims Ghetto Culture Causes Black Kids To Smoke Weed
By: Steve - July 30, 2014 - 10:00am

During Monday's O'Reilly Factor, crazy O'Reilly used his biased Talking Points Memo and a panel discussion to race-bait and spew out misleading information on the issue of marijuana use. O'Reilly first attacked the New York Times, who published an op-ed from its editorial board over the weekend expressing its support for the federal legalization of marijuana.

O'Reilly dishonestly targeted one small section of the op-ed that pointed out the great disparity of arrests for marijuana possession compared to hard drugs (such as cocaine and heroin), and claimed that blacks are disproportionately targeted. Below is the one paragraph from the NYT piece:
The social costs of the marijuana laws are vast. There were 658,000 arrests for marijuana possession in 2012, according to F.B.I. figures, compared with 256,000 for cocaine, heroin and their derivatives. Even worse, the result is racist, falling disproportionately on young black men, ruining their lives and creating new generations of career criminals.
This made O’Reilly mad, and he decided to push back against the Times and the so-called "far-left" regarding their support for the legalization of marijuana. O'Reilly insisted that liberals only support the issue because of some misguided nonsense that blacks are suffering disparate repercussions than whites for marijuana use and possession.

During his propaganda TPM, O'Reilly spun out a bunch of cherry-picked and unrelated statistics to back up his argument that marijuana should remain illegal and that there should be heavy fines for possession and stiff jail time for selling it.

When it came to federal arrests for marijuana, O'Reilly stated that the vast majority of arrests were for drug trafficking, and that Hispanics not blacks, made up a disproportionately high amount of arrests. Of course, O'Reilly is dishonest by tossing out that statistic. Because the feds are only going to concentrate on major drug cases, not street-level crimes. That is left to local law enforcement.

Considering that most large shipments of marijuana come in from Mexico and Central America, it only makes sense that the majority of those arrested for trafficking the product are Hispanic. Regardless, the NYT board, and others, aren't talking about drug trafficking when it comes to possession and use of marijuana and the racist nature of law enforcement and prosecution.

The fact is, blacks are nearly four times more likely to be arrested for possession than whites, even though whites and blacks use at roughly the same rate.

O'Reilly also went after marijuana as a gateway drug that leads to harder drug use. To bolster his case, he pointed to a Yale study done in 2012. However, what O'Reilly failed to mention is that the same study revealed that young adults who used alcohol and tobacco were twice as likely as those who used marijuana to abuse harder drugs.

Also, the Institute of Medicine found that there was "no conclusive evidence that the drug effects of marijuana are causally linked to the subsequent abuse of other illicit drugs." In other words, there is no proof that smoking marijuana leads to using harder drugs. And yet, that is what O'Reilly claimed anyway, even though he says he only deals in the facts and never speculates or puts out any spin.

O'Reilly also tried to link marijuana use and possession to the drop in New York City's murder rate, saying that Rudy Giuliani's crackdown on violent crime and gangs was directly related to marijuana and that if it is made legal, murder rates will soar. Which is not only a lie, it's beyond ridiculous.

After O'Reilly did his best to scare his old, right-wing white viewers with a report seemingly lifted directly from Reefer Madness, he then turned it over to a panel discussion with two guests. One guest, Kevin Sabet, is a co-founder of an anti-marijuana group called Smart Approaches to Marijuana. The other guest, Stephen Gutwillig, is the Deputy Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance, a group that looks to reform the current drug laws in this country.

O'Reilly then went into full-on race-bating mode. While talking with Sabet and Gutwillig, O'Reilly claimed that "in certain ghetto neighborhoods it's part of the culture. 9-year-old boys and girls are smoking it."

O'Reilly also claimed that liberals "don't like that. They don't want to see them targeted by the cops."

In O'Reillyworld, inner-city blacks are all irresponsible criminals who allow their children to smoke weed and go to the liquor store. Because, as Sabet pointed out, poor black communities have eight times as many liquor stores as other neighborhoods. Therefore, we should continue to have draconian drug laws in this country and have the police target poor black people far more than whites because we need to teach them responsibility and that their actions have repercussions.

The only way to make this country like it once was, which is some idealized version of the 1950s that never really existed, is to harshly punish poor minorities for having the audacity of not being white people living in the suburbs.

Thankfully, biased culture warriors like O'Reilly are losing this battle. Just like same-sex marriage, legalization of marijuana is coming. The majority of Americans favor it and our prison system has become needlessly overrun with non-criminals. Like just almost everything else, O'Reilly is on the wrong side of history.

The Monday 7-28-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 29, 2014 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: The Great Marijuana Ruse. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: The New York Times has called for the USA to legalize marijuana all over the place. That's no surprise, that paper is far left on its editorial page. But the real reason many liberals want to legalize pot is contained in the Times editorial, which says the social costs of marijuana 'fall disproportionately on young black men.' There you have it.

The left believes American law enforcement targets African Americans for drug prosecutions; therefore, they want drug sales to categorized as non-violent offenses and marijuana to be legalized. It's about race, not drugs. Now, some facts: About 5,000 criminals were sentenced federally for marijuana offenses in 2013, almost 98% of them for selling. 63% of those convicted on the federal level were Hispanic, just 11% black.

The legalization of marijuana is full of unintended consequences. It sends a signal to children that drug use is an acceptable part of life. As for the poor precincts in America, does it make any sense to make intoxicants more available? Drug use and sales have devastated poor neighborhoods in this country. Same thing with alcoholism and tobacco use, but you don't add to those problems by legalizing pot. That's stupid!

What authorities should do is decriminalize pot use. If you want to use it in your home and not bother anyone, fine. But if you go outside with a joint or a pipe, you pay a fine. And if you sell marijuana, you go to jail. America used to have standards of behavior in public, but they are collapsing all around us.
Speaking of stupid, Bill O'Reilly is just stupid. The the real reason liberals want to legalize pot is because the drug war has been a total failure, a waste of money, and a waste of time for the court system. Not to mention the cost of all the people in prison for simple possession. It has nothing to do with the cost falling on black men, it's about enforcement and the cost, for a failure. You can not enforce the law, it does not work.

Then Stephen Gutwillig & Kevin Sabet were on to discuss it.

Gutwillig said this: "I'm thrilled to hear that you support decriminalizing marijuana. We should not be chasing after the nearly 750,000 Americans that we arrest every year for possessing tiny amounts of pot for their personal use. We should have this gigantic marijuana economy in the hands of regulators instead of criminals."

Sabet (the Republican) said this: "If we thought the tobacco industry was bad with the lies about the science, just wait for the marijuana industry. I want to ask the New York Times if they considered the stances of the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and other groups that oppose legalization."

Then Juan Williams & Mary Katharine Ham were on to talk about the conservative columnist and Fox News analyst George Will, who surprised many people by urging America to open its arms to Central American children who are flooding across the Rio Grande.

Ham said this: "I will respectfully disagree on a few points, but I do agree that we should not discount our ability to assimilate new immigrants, it's something that America is quite good at. But if the policy is that everybody who comes can stay, then you're not dealing with the many thousands who will come after that."

Williams argued that America is well-equipped to welcome and assimilate tens of thousands of children, saying this: "We support the elderly, we support our veterans, and, as it says on the Statute of Liberty, we can handle your teeming masses yearning to be free."

But of course the far-right O'Reilly disagreed with Willians and Will, saying this: "You are dodging the unintended consequences of an open border. You have never called for the National Guard on the border, you are an open border guy, that's who you are!"

Then Brit Hume was on to evaluate the often-heard suspicion (by Republicans) that President Obama harbors an anti-Israel bias.

Hume said this: "Some Israeli politicians clearly think that is the case, and there are some on the American right who think that as well. And there is some truth to it. Remember when Netanyahu was snubbed at the White House? And then there was this effort by John Kerry over the weekend to get Israel to go along with a one-sided cease-fire proposal. I think President Obama instinctively shares the sentiment on the academic left that favors Israel's Palestinian neighbors over Israel. But Israel is very popular in Congress and in the country as a whole."

Then Karl Rove was on to talk about the elections, and of course no Democratic guest was on for balance, so it was all one sided right-wing spin.

Rove said this: "This is going to be a wild year. The Washington Post's model recently said there is an 86% chance that Republicans will take control of the Senate. I'm not that optimistic, I think it's about a 60% chance. But many Democrats have the advantage of incumbency."

O'Reilly said this about Harry Reid: "Reid has blocked most meaningful legislation from coming up for a vote. Whenever the House passes a bill, Reid blocks it in the Senate. One guy is sabotaging the whole process."

Then Megyn Kelly was on to talk about a recent poll that shows more than half of respondents view Islamic jihadists as the biggest threat to the USA.

Kellysaid this: "I'm also very concerned about the jihadists, but I also believe in the saying that America can only destroy herself. And the older I get, the more I start to understand the segments you do on social values and these culture wars. I'm starting to get it more now that I'm a mother of three young children, I worry about the erosion of our culture and our family values. You can go through an entire day without having any human interaction. It makes us feel disconnected and disenchanted and I think it can ultimately be dangerous."

Then Jesse Watters was on, he went to the town of Newport, Rhode Island, where he asked some locals and vacationers to grade President Obama's job performance. Here are a few of their replies: "He doesn't seem to be honest" ... "I think he's done a pretty good job" ... "I think he made some promises that he didn't live up to well."

Watters also asked the people what they think of Bill O'Reilly. "You want a straight interview and honest talk," one man declared, "that's where you go." But another gentleman was far less gentle when he pronounced, "You're with Fox, I don't do Fox!"

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: How to Handle Bad Things. Billy said this: "When bad things happen to you, try your hardest to turn them around, just as many of our wounded warriors have done in their lives."

Mark Cuban To Sell Stock In Companies Who Dodge Taxes
By: Steve - July 29, 2014 - 10:00am

As more and more American corporations have used mergers and shell companies to shift profits and shrink their U.S. tax liabilities over the past few years, there has generally been a sharp divide between populists who decry the maneuvers and investors who celebrate them. Friday morning saw a high-profile defection from the economic elites camp, however, as outspoken billionaire investor Mark Cuban pledged to sell off his holdings in companies that move offshore for tax reasons. "If I own stock in your company and you move offshore for tax reasons I'm selling your stock," Cuban tweeted.

And if all the wealthy people in America did the same thing, these sellout corporations would stop doing it. Not to mention, if Congress was not in the back pocket of these very same corporations they would pass a law making it illegal.

Rather than seeking a synthetic boost in their stock price by shifting tax burdens onto others, Cuban said, American companies should persuade investors to accept slower growth in their market returns in exchange for job growth and expansion here at home.

His primary rationale is a self-interested rather than a philanthropic or political one, as you might expect from a wealthy investor with a healthy competitive streak. "When companies move off shore to save on taxes, you and I make up the tax shortfall elsewhere sell those stocks and they won't move," he tweeted later.

Cuban's high-profile opposition to corporate offshoring could provide a signal boost of sorts for the Obama administration's own efforts to encourage a renewed "sense of economic patriotism" among business elites. While President Obama himself has begun speaking against the sorts of moves Cuban decried Friday, the corporate executives who make these decisions may be more receptive to hearing it from one of their own.

As media chatter about offshoring and corporate taxes gets louder, odds of getting actual legislation passed may be improving slightly. The Senate will debate the Bring Jobs Home Act more than two years after it was first introduced. While an actual vote on the measure is still not guaranteed, the last time the bill came up Republicans filibustered it before it could even be discussed fully on the floor.

A vote to allow debate on Wednesday represents progress, however marginal and fragile.

The momentum behind such legislation comes in large part from a wave of mergers designed to allow American companies to move their official headquarters to tax haven countries like Ireland.

Those mergers, known as "inversions," have become far more popular in the years since the Great Recession began than they were over the previous two decades. They have also garnered negative attention for companies like Pfizer, Medtronic, and Walgreen's that are reportedly considering inversion mergers this year.

Profit offshoring costs taxpayers tens of billions of dollars per year, and the total profit held overseas by American companies now hovers around $2 trillion.

And of course O'Reilly does not report any of this, because it makes his corporate and Republican friends look bad, and he does not want you to know why you are paying so much in taxes, not because of social security, or medicare, etc. It's because all these corporations are dodging their taxes by setting up shell offices in foreign countries to avoid paying there share of taxes.

Maher Slams GOP For Bogus Criticism Of President Obama
By: Steve - July 28, 2014 - 10:00am

Here is proof the Republican party slams President Obama 24/7 for one reason, politics. They were asked by Bill Maher to give him one specific thing he is doing wrong and what he should do different. The two Republicans guests had no answer and could not answer the question, they both just said what O'Reilly says every night, he has a failure of leadership, and Obama refuses to act like a strong leader.

Proving it is nothing but right-wing talking points, the very same talking points O'Reilly puts out, even after he said a 100 times that he never uses Republican talking points on his show.

On Friday night's Real Time, Bill Maher took on two of his Republican guests, who were criticizing President Obama over his foreign policy. Maher challenged them to say exactly what Obama should be doing differently, and repeatedly emphasized that they should be specific in their criticisms.

FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe first admitted it's not all Obama’s fault, saying Bush is partly to blame for the chaos in the world, but at the same time, he said, "this president has zero respect in the world."

When Maher asked what Obama should do, Kibbe said, "It's called leadership." Maher said, "Remember when I said be specific?" and added, "What the hell does that mean?"

Kibbe had no answer, he just kept saying he is failing to be a leader and could not give a specific answer, he just repeated the right-wing talking points that Obama is failing to be a leader.

Republican Hogan Gidley jumped in to say Obama refuses to act like a strong leader would, such as naming Putin "as a bad actor in the planes coming down."

Which is not only ridiculous, it's a lie, because Obama has said Putin is a bad actor and the Republicans just refuse to admit it, just as they still deny he called 9-11 a terrorist act for a week, when he said it the very next day in a speech from the Rose Garden, which is documented btw.

Maher repeatedly pressed Gidley on what Obama should do, and when Gidley didn't directly answer, he said, "You keep veering off the point of what we should be doing!"

Republican Takes Credit For Emergency Funds He Voted Against
By: Steve - July 27, 2014 - 11:00am

Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has repeatedly voted against emergency funding for disaster relief, but attempted to take credit for it on Wednesday for the Obama administration's approval of aid for 23 counties in Arkansas.

Cotton, who is the Republican nominee challenging Sen. Mark Pryor (D) for his Senate seat this November, joined with the state's Congressional delegation in a press release to announce that U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack approved a disaster declaration request by Gov. Mike Beebe (D) to provide assistance to farmers and ranchers whose crops and pastures were devastated by June flash floods.

"I appreciate Secretary Vilsack's quick approval of Governor Beebe's disaster declaration request for the 23 impacted counties," Cotton said in the release, adding, "I have heard from many farmers about the impact of the recent flooding, and I look forward to working with our friends in Arkansas to make sure farmers are able to access the emergency funds they need."

But the emergency funds come from the federal Farm Bill (legislation Cotton voted against in 2013 and 2014).

But despite his stated view that the Farm Bill was a "bad bill for farmers, it was a bad bill for taxpayers, it was a bad bill for Arkansas," Cotton joined with the delegation earlier this month to request "swift consideration and approval" of those funds, including loans the request called "vital to farmers and ranchers who may have no other source of revenue over the next year."

A Pryor campaign spokesman told the Arkansas Times, "It takes a special kind of arrogance for Congressman Cotton to take credit for disaster relief funds that he consistently and recklessly opposed."

While Cotton's opposition to these emergency funds were part of a larger farm bill, he has also voted against stand-alone emergency funding when other states were in need. Last year, he was one of just a few dozen members of Congress to oppose both the $50.7 billion emergency aid package for Superstorm Sandy victims and the smaller $9 billion emergency Sandy relief bill.

Cotton's hypocrisy is not unique to him. Dozens of other Congressional Republicans voted against the Sandy aid measures despite their own history of supporting aid for their own districts. Last September, Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner (R) and three other Colorado Republican Congressmen pushed a bill to lift the cap on flood aid for their state, despite their unanimous opposition to the Sandy funding.

O'Reilly Friend Ted Nugent Getting Hurt For His Extreme Views
By: Steve - July 27, 2014 - 10:00am

O'Reilly likes Ted Nugent, has him on his show as a frequent guest, and even recently said his kind of straight talk is what the Republican party needs. During the interview, O'Reilly did not even mention Nugent's birtherism, his race-baiting, suggestions he'd like to kill Barack Obama, the racist subhuman mongrel comment, or how he would also like to kill Hillary Clinton.

O'Reilly also said this: "Sometimes Nugent's politics can make things a bit dicey. But the only thing close to a controversy we learned about Nugent was that he's a big gun guy and a conservative."

Which is a total lie, because all this is in the public for anyone to find out about.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Nugent called candidate Barack Obama "a piece of shit" who should "suck on my machine gun" and Hillary Clinton, a "worthless bitch" who should ride into the sunset on his machine gun.

In 2012, Nugent said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

In May, 2013, he said during a concert, "One way or another I'm going to the White House and I'm going to get those c...suckers in a stranglehold."

For which he got a visit from the Secret Service.

In August, 2013, he said: "You got to earn it. Unlike these well-fed food stamp c...suckers, we got to earn what we get. You won't get no venison with food stamps, you pussies. But you can get crack. How fed up is that?"

In July, 2013, Nugent wrote about Obama’s "phony birth certificate" and described the Fort Hood shooter as Obama's "Allah Ahkbar buddy."

And that's only about 10% of the racist and hate-filled stuff Nugent has said. But O’Reilly -- who previously said Nugent's "straight talk is what the Republican Party needs" -- mentioned none of that.

O'Reilly closed the interview by saying this: "Ted Nugent everybody. One of a kind."

And now Music Industry Experts Are saying Ted Nugent's Ongoing Political Diatribes Are Damaging His Concert Promotions.

In a week when two casinos operated by different Native American tribes canceled three separate Nugent shows set for next month and dozens protested a concert in New Jersey, concert touring experts say the NRA board member and conservative commentator is doing real damage to his money-earning potential.

"If you're going to say something political, you're going to have some backlash, it doesn't matter who you are or what you say," said Larry Magid, a Philadelphia-based promoter who has handled Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, and Bette Midler. "Nugent seems to have taken it to extremes. I don't know that you can blame anyone for not wanting to play him for all of the baggage that he brings."

Magid, who also organized the famed 1985 Live Aid benefit show in Philadelphia, said Nugent was never a huge concert draw, but his declaration earlier this year that President Barack Obama is a "subhuman mongrel" may mark a turning point.

"I don't know if that is frustration at not being a viable act, but it is stupid," Magid said of Nugent. "If you are a musician, you are trying to bring your music, your art to a broad group of people. It is one thing to take a stance, it is another thing when you are talking about the president of the United States.

"For all of the people enamored with him, there are 20 or 30 or 40 times that who are not enamored with him. To me, it's not bright. If I'm a promoter I have to think two or three or four times before I take a shot with this performer."

"No one should be surprised by any of this," said Gary Bongiovanni, editor-in-chief of Pollstar USA, which tracks concert touring receipts. "It's a free country and Nugent has always had a big mouth. But if he keeps making incendiary statements his future tours may be limited to NRA conventions and Fox News events."

Bongiovanni said the public reaction is not unusual: "Why be surprised if you can't sell tickets to them after you insult people who are gay, animal rights, or gun control advocates, or just in the majority of people who voted for Obama?"

Although Nugent has long been a hardline conservative and pro-gun advocate, his "subhuman mongrel" comments triggered a massive media firestorm and led prominent Republicans to disassociate themselves from the rocker earlier this year. Nugent's offensive and racist comments have more recently caused a backlash against his concerts.

Among the results: Three Nugent concerts scheduled in early August at Native American tribe-owned casinos in Washington and Idaho were canceled this week due to the performer's commentary. Puyallup Tribe Tribal Chairman Bill Sterud has said Nugent is a "jackass" and will never be booked again.

Earlier this summer controversy surrounded a concert scheduled for an Oshkosh, WI, music festival after a letter to the editor decrying Nugent's concert received heightened attention. Nugent subsequently described his critics as "unclean vermin."

"Picket signs lined the street" outside a July 22 concert in New Jersey as Nugent was greeted by "at least 75 protestors."

While Nugent will perform at The Toledo Blade's Northwest Ohio Rib-Off festival next month, the paper's sales director told Media Matters he had received numerous complaints and strongly suggested Nugent would never be booked again.

The City of Longview, TX in March canceled Nugent's concert at a Fourth of July festival and paid him $16,000 (reportedly half his fee) not to show up.

John Scher of Metropolitan Entertainment Consultants, a longtime New Jersey promoter who has booked Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and Billy Joel, said he's never seen such a public backlash in his 40 years promoting concerts.

"I can't really, really recall this kind of reaction because of political beliefs," Scher said, later adding, "All in all, I don't think it can be a plus. Where's the tipping point? I think he'll find it will probably shrink to the places where his views are not so contrary to the views of the general population. You might see him doing most of his touring in the south or certain states in the west that are gun-toting conservatives.

In the Northeast and in California he is probably not getting booked as much ... I don't see from an overall point of view how he is helping himself."

Steve Knopper, a Rolling Stone contributing editor who covers the rock concert business, said this is clearly a trend.

"It does seem like, whether it is a movement or people deciding to be offended by this en masse, it seems like it's having an impact and that can't be good," Knopper said. "I don't know if Ted Nugent's main source of income is from concerts, but the way right now to make money in the music business is to tour."

Knopper added, "I'm guessing that he needs to tour to make money and if his comments are preventing him from doing that he may well have to rethink how he handles his public image. He has said some incredibly offensive stuff in the past few years, now maybe it is hitting home."

Highest Paid CEOs Deliver Worst Returns For Investors
By: Steve - July 26, 2014 - 10:00am

O'Reilly and his CEO friends like to justify their sky-high pay by saying it rewards their work in steering companies toward better performance. But a new analysis doesn't give much evidence to back that up.

Equilar, an executive compensation consultancy, compared the salaries of 200 highly paid CEOs to their companies performance based on things like profitability, revenue, and stock return. Rather than showing a clear trend line linking pay and performance, the data is scattered.

In fact, chief executive pay is only 1 percent based on stock performance, with 99 percent based on other things entirely.

As Bloomberg Businessweek notes, "The comparison makes it look as if there is zero relationship between pay and performance."

Indeed, even when companies boast that they tie executive compensation to company performance, the country's largest companies routinely game those systems to ensure they get their bonuses and payouts, such as setting targets so low as to be meaningless or fluffing up their reported profits.

In one example, Walmart US CEO William Simon was only supposed to get a $1.5 million bonus last year if net sales grew by 2 percent, but he got it anyway when sales only grew by 1.8 percent because the company calculated "adjusted" sales at the necessary rate.

Worse, out of the highest-paid CEOs over the past 20 years, nearly four in ten were fired, caught committing fraud, or oversaw a company bailout.

In other words, Incompetence does not stand in the way of a big payday.

There's even evidence that paying chief executives lavishly can backfire. Shareholders at the companies that pay their CEOs the most get the worst results, with an average shareholder loss of $1.4 billion.

That's because exorbitant pay breeds overconfidence, leading to bad decisions about weak performance.

None of these findings have kept CEO pay in check. The median chief executive pay jumped above eight figures for the first time last year, hitting $10.5 million. The average pay package was $15.2 million, a 21.7 percent increase since 2010.

Workers compensation, on the other hand, actually fell during that period, and the ratio of CEO pay to worker pay was 295.9-to-1 last year. Over the last 30 years, chief executive pay has risen 127 times faster than worker pay despite the fact that workers productivity has kept increasing.

The Thursday 7-24-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 25, 2014 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: President Obama and the Folks. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: Some are calling for the president to be impeached, so I asked the Fox News polling people to form a question about impeachment. The results of the scientific survey are in - 36% favor impeachment, 61% do not. Most Americans reject an impeachment spectacle because they know it would hurt the country and there is no compelling evidence to support that drastic action.

But there is no question that the president is under pressure, and on every major issue most Americans disapprove of his performance. Barack Obama has lost the folks, at least those Americans who evaluate things in a fair way. Talking Points believes President Obama's current problems are being exacerbated by his demeanor.

He seems disengaged, apathetic, even arrogant at times. He meanders and doesn't seem authoritative. So the perception, even in some Democratic precincts, is that Mr. Obama has lost his ability to deal with problems effectively.

From the president's point of view, he believes he's being treated unfairly by the Republican House and that the media, which once adored him, is not giving him enough support. The president is not the kind of guy who rallies the troops, he's an academic and consensus-seeker. Well, there is consensus now. Most Americans feel President Obama is failing in his job.
Notice that O'Reilly says some people want the President impeached, but he does not tell you those "some" people are 1/100th of 1% and far-right loons. They are extreme right fools, but O'Reilly does not point that out or call them loons as he does with people on the far-left when they say dumb things.

And before I continue with the review, notice the guest list, O'Reilly said he personally makes sure he has an equal number of Democratic and Republican guests, even though that is a total lie, because he is a Republican and he wants his show to be biased to the right, so that it makes him look like he is right about everything.

Dear Bill O'Reilly, 8 Republican guests to 1 Democratic guest is not being equal or fair, and when you add O'Reilly it's 9 to 1. That is not balance, it's unfair biased journalism, which O'Reilly does almost every night, and the worst part is he does it while crying that the rest of the media is biased, when he is more biased than any of them. And the 1 Democrat is on with a Republican, so even that segment is not balanced, because it's a 2 on 1 with O'Reilly and Tantaros against Carville.

Then Democrat James Carville (the only Democrat on the entire show) and conservative Andrea Tantaros were on to discuss it.

Carville said this: "These numbers are stable, and I don't think he cares much about poll numbers. People's incomes have not gone up the way they'd like, but I think will be the best year for private job creation in this century. It takes a while for these things to get into the bloodstream."

Tantaros said this: "That's the reason his poll numbers are so low - people don't believe he cares and he's not even pretending. He makes no effort, and the more that Republicans ramp up the criticism, the more passive-aggressive he gets. He doesn't care!"

Then James Rosen & Carl Cameron were on to talk about the ISIS army, who is moving through parts of Syria and Iraq, taking over large parts of those lands. Rosen said this: "The question is why the administration is not firing shots at ISIS, and there are a number of reasons. The overriding one is that the President harbors a real revulsion toward the projection of American military force. He came to office pledging to end the Iraq war and is loath to take any action that would appear to be reneging on that."

Which is total speculation from Rosen, the same speculation O'Reilly claims to not allow. So in other words, if you are a Republican you can speculate on the show, if you are a Democrat you can not.

Cameron analyzed the widening chasm between the two parties in Washington, saying this: "It's just as poisonous as everybody says and maybe more so. House Republicans are suing the president and other Republicans think he should be impeached. There has been acrimony since the first term and it's gotten to the point where both sides are utterly wedded to servicing their political bases."

So what is Obama supposed to do, like the people who say he is not an American and call him racist names, and who also want to impeach him for no reason. I would do the very same thing, if I had people calling me un-American and calling for my impeachment I would not talk to them or deal with them in any way.

Then Laura Ingraham was on with her take on isolationist Rand Paul, who may run for the GOP presidential nomination. And of course no Democratic guest was on for balance.

Ingraham said this: "He's capturing what a lot of people are feeling out there, after the Bush years and a sense that we didn't really win in Iraq. He's closer than other Republicans to the way Americans feel about getting involved militarily in Syria and Ukraine and Iraq. People worry that we're going to have more wars and more intervention."

Ingraham also advised Republicans to be wary of overseas actions, saying this: "If we start sounding like we are more concerned with the borders of Iraq then we are with our own borders, that will be a hard sell to the middle class that carries the burdens of the wars." O'Reilly said this: "Rand Paul will be hurt by his foreign policy."

Earth to O'Reilly and Ingraham, Rand Paul will be hurt because he is a far-right loon, and he will never be the President, ever. To even discuss it is laughable, he is so far right of the mainstream he has no chance, none.

Then Heather Nauert was on to answer emails from angry viewers. And of course there was no Democratic guest for balance, One of them, Pennsylvanian Kim Young, is peeved because the University of Texas and other schools give preferences to certain minorities. "The policy at Texas, is that 25% of the students who apply there are admitted on a 'holistic review.' That includes things like single-parent upbringing and if you've had adversity."

Another viewer, Gary Coffin of North Carolina, complained that President Obama is acting like a dictator. "One of his biggest executive orders, is the one dealing with young children coming across the border. The order says that those children can stay here if they meet certain requirements. A lot of people have argued that the president abuses executive orders, but Congress can de-fund these."

Then Bernie Goldberg was on to talk about why the White House banned the media from an event celebrating the 45th anniversary of the first moon landing. So he speculated, as in guessed.

Goldberg said this: "What if one of the astronauts says, 'Mr. President, I think you made a big mistake by gutting the manned space program?' What if another says, 'Mr. President, it's humiliating for Americans to have to hitch a ride to the space station on a Russian rocket?' Do you think the president wants the press around to hear any of that? This is the same Barack Obama who promised us that he would have the most open administration in American history. Sure!"

Then Greg Gutfeld and Bernard McGuirk, were on to talk about this week's near-brawl in the Ukraine parliament.

Gutfeld said this: "This is like the family across the street that's always quarreling. You want to do something but you're afraid that if you get in between them you'll get hit. This was a fight between the separatists and the nationalists, and this is what happens if you don't take your borders seriously. Every major conflict around the world is about a border."

McGuirk said this: "There was a question about whether to allow The O'Reilly Factor to be shown in Ukraine, that's what set them off. I'd like to see this kind of passion in our own Congress - I'd like to see Mitch McConnell and John Boehner duking it out with Al Franken and Harry Reid."

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day that was once again not a tip, just O'Reilly promoting a soccer team that is going around the world to honor some wounded warriors. Which is great and I support it, but it's not a tip of the day.

O'Reilly Says Giving 40 Million Health Insurance Income Redistribution
By: Steve - July 25, 2014 - 10:00am

Wow, Bill O'Reilly is just a total right-wing tool. Now he claims that extending affordable health insurance to 40 million Americans is "harmful" income redistribution.

O'Reilly said this Wednesday night:

Which is just ridiculous, because none of what he says has come true. All during the time of Obamcare the economy has got better, unemployment went down, jobs are over 200,000 for 6 straight months, and the stock market is setting record highs.

Those facts prove O'Reilly wrong, and yet he still keeps lying that Obamacare will hurt the economy and cost jobs. It's insanity, and right-wing propaganda. Even though reality proves him wrong he still keeps spinning out the right-wing taking points that Obamacare is a disaster, a failure, and harmful to the country.

When the facts show the exact opposite. Good job O'Reilly, you have proven to be a fool and a partisan hack once again.

The Wednesday 7-23-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 24, 2014 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: ObamaCare and Socialism. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: A federal court ruled Tuesday that the feds cannot provide health care insurance subsidies because the ObamaCare law prohibits it. That ruling was almost immediately countered by another court, but there is no question that ObamaCare is headed back to the Supreme Court because it's so chaotic.

The pinheads in Congress passed ObamaCare and didn't know what was in it; even President Obama didn't know what was in the bill. The overriding issue here is the use of taxpayer dollars. ObamaCare is a pure income redistribution play - President Obama and the Democratic Party want to put as much money into the hands of the poor and less affluent as they can, and the health care subsidies are a great way to do that.

Income redistribution is a hallmark of socialism and we in America are now moving in that direction, which has angered the Republican Party and many conservatives. But Republicans have not been able to convince the majority of Americans that income redistribution is harmful. If the entitlement culture expands, businesses contract so there are fewer jobs, and the massive federal debt rises, diminishing the value of the dollar.

But many Americans have no clue about what I just said, and enough of them want free stuff so they continue to elect pro-entitlement politicians. So ObamaCare is much more than providing medical assets to the poor, it's about capitalism vs. socialism. But now, because the law is so nebulous, the Supreme Court will once again get the chance to weigh in, perhaps this time dooming the law forever.
Which is just ridiculous, it's not socialism or income redistribution, it's simply helping people to afford health care, which actually saves the country money because then they are not only going to emergency rooms they get the care they need.

Then the former Obama economic adviser Austan Goolsbee was on to discuss it.

Goolsbee said this: "This is not socialism versus capitalism. Everyone has to buy insurance, and all this does is try to keep it so that the most people have to pay is 10% of their income. That's the same sense of redistribution which exists in Medicare."

Goolsbee admitted that the law is poorly written, but predicted it will be upheld by the Supreme Court, saying this: "Conservatives are always talking about 'original intent,' and it's obvious that the original intent of this law was not to prevent subsidies in the states."

Then Ed Henry was on with O'Reilly to cry about President Obama flying around the country to attend fundraisers. Which they never did one time when Bush was doing it.

Henry said this: "He is basically a lame duck, so he is caring less and less about this criticism. This week there are five workdays and on three of them he's raising money. All presidents raise money, but with all these crises, the optics are horrible for him."

Henry added this: "If he loses control of the Senate, he's going to be done if he no longer has Harry Reid pushing his agenda."

O'Reilly objected to the fact that taxpayers are picking up the tab for the these trips, saying this: "All fundraising trips should be paid for by the party, it's unfair for a president to spend the majority of his time fundraising for his party while all Americans pay."

But when Bush did it O'Reilly never said a word, nothing.

Then Bob Beckel was on to say what the USA should do about the crash site in Russia and the ongoing investigation.

Beckel said this: "You need to secure this site, but the United States should not do it unilaterally. It's not worth us going in there and take the chance of losing American troops."

Beckel also urged stronger economic sanctions against Russia, saying this: "Putin is a rat but he's vastly overestimated. The United States has done some limited sanctions, but the Europeans are aiding and abetting Putin. If the Europeans had the guts to cut off oil and gas from Russia, that would choke this guy economically."

Then Martha MacCallum was on to assess the continuing violence in Chicago.

MacCallum said this: "Four people were killed last weekend, and one of them was an 11-year-old child who was inside a house at a sleepover party. This problem is out of control and I think the president has missed an opportunity to act when it comes to African Americans. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has cut back the police force and they've done nothing to lift the gun ban that has been in place since 1980."

O'Reilly slammed the mayor and the police, saying this: "If the city of Chicago can't control the violence on the South Side, the governor of Illinois should send in the National Guard to patrol these neighborhoods."

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: The Dangers of a Zoned-Out Life. Billy said this: "Anyone who chooses to live their life in a drug or alcohol induced haze is wasting their abilities and mistreating their fellow citizens."

Rick Perry National Guard Order Illegal & Maybe Unconstitutional
By: Steve - July 24, 2014 - 10:00am

And of course O'Reilly supports it, because he is also a Republican who has been calling for Obama to send the National Guard to the border, O'Reilly said this Monday night:
O'REILLY: "I believe this is the right move and it puts Governor Perry in the spotlight for the presidential campaign. Just those pictures of the National Guard on the border will suppress the smuggling industry in Central America."
And now the facts: Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said Monday he will send 1,000 members of the National Guard to the border.

"I will not stand idly by," Perry said in making the announcement. He told CNN, "the first thing you have to do is stop the flow [of migrants into the United States]."

He also claimed border patrol agents would be distracted by kids crossing the border and would not be able to stop drug traffickers.

But other lawmakers are questioning what role the National Guard could play. The influx of unaccompanied children whose border crossing have been tallied are already being intercepted by border patrol agents, which is how they are later processed and sheltered in the United States during legal proceedings.

The LAW requires that these minors be sheltered while they await legal determinations about whether they have an asylum claim because they are being persecuted in their home countries. And no amount of troops at the border will change the law that requires minors to be at least temporarily housed in the United States.

"The children fleeing violence in Central America are seeking out border patrol agents. They are not trying to evade them. Why send soldiers to confront these kids?" said Congressman Joaquín Castro (D-TX), slamming Perry for militarizing a humanitarian situation. "Militarizing our border is the wrong response to the arrival of children."

State Sen. Juan Hinojosa also accused Perry of politicizing the issue without actually fixing the problem of an influx of kids fleeing violence. Sheriff Omar Luci, who oversees Cameron County near the border, also suggested Perry's move was political. "I don't know that it helps," he told the Dallas Morning News.

Some sheriffs near the border note that National Guard troops would not be authorized to detain people, and that funds would be better spent on more local deputies and equipment.

Even the head of the National Guard under George W. Bush said earlier this week that he has not yet heard a clear rationale for sending troops to the border. "I'm not sure we've clearly defined the question, and until that is done I am reluctant to tell you that the Guard is the answer," H. Steven Blum told the Washington Post.

"Merely sending the Guard to the border is not a panacea for the myriad complex problems of the current situation."

Perry's move could also run into constitutional problems. The Constitution's Supremacy Clause prohibits states from interfering with areas of regulation that have been preempted by the federal government, and the U.S. Supreme Court has already invalidated provisions of state law that seek to legislate on immigration reform.

Washington and Lee University law professor Margaret Hu said this provision could suffer similar constitutional problems, particularly because it interferes with national security and Department of Homeland Security policies also.

Perry's announcement comes several days after several Republican House of Representatives members introduced a resolution calling on Perry and several other governors in border states to send National Guard troops to the border.

The resolution "recognizes, supports, and defends the Constitutional authority" of these governors to send troops to the border, and urges them to immediately deploy troops. But this, too, raises constitutional flags.

The resolution also commits to covering the cost of the troops -- estimated to be $5 million per week just in Texas. The state is already spending $1.3 million on a state-funded border surge.

The Tuesday 7-22-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 23, 2014 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: How Some Americans Are Giving President Obama Cover. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: Most Americans believe the USA is in trouble on many fronts and they are holding President Obama accountable for some of the distress, but not all. The president understands that many Americans are not paying attention to what is happening overseas; a majority don't even want to fight terrorists who are surging in Iraq.

Apparently many of us do not see the danger of the ISIS army establishing a base inside Iraq, a base that could threaten the USA. Most Americans do not know what the ISIS army is, they don't know that Iran is close to having a nuclear weapon, and they don't know that Israel is pretty much saying it won't tolerate a nuclear Iran, so war may be looming.

In this age of social media, Americans are becoming more apathetic, more concerned with their wallets and personal lives. Talking Points believes many Americans simply don't understand how weakness is putting us in danger. President Kennedy knew that peace through strength is the only way security happens. I wish President Obama knew that.
And as usual, O'Reilly is wrong. Most Americans still think America is a great country and things are getting better after Bush and the Republicans crashed the economy in 2008. The economy is doing good, jobs are back, unemployment is down, the stock market is setting record highs, and overall the country is doing good, not great, but good.

O'Reilly ignores all that to focus on foreign affairs, that nobody cares about, and slamming Obama every chance he can. To this day he still has not reported the unemployment drop, the June jobs report, or the stock market breaking 17,000. It's total one sided right-wing bias from O'Reilly, and it's a joke, especially from a man who claims to be a non-partisan Independent with a no spin zone.

Then Kirsten Powers and Monica Crowley were on to discuss it.

Powers said this: "I don't think you're wrong if you're saying Obama is not as engaged as he should be. Before the election he actually had high ratings on foreign policy and they've come down a lot because Americans feel there is a lot of chaos in the world. I would defend him in some areas, such as leaving Iraq, but in other areas I would say he has not been engaged."

Crowley said this: "Sometimes you have to do what is unpopular with your own people in order to advance your nation's interest and we don't see that happening. The public is world-weary and the economy has been so bad for so long that they're worried about their own jobs, but there are also a lot of low-information voters out there who either don't know or don't care to know about what's going on in the world."

Then Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was on to talk about his swim across the Rio Grande to demonstrate the method used by some illegals to enter the USA.

Ramos said this: "I learned that it is really dangerous. There are strong undercurrents, it is full of debris and contaminated, and in the last 9 months 33 people have drowned in the Laredo area. But in spite of the danger, Central American children prefer to cross the river than stay home. I don't think any government should be in the business of deporting endangered children - that's not the Christian way, it's not the American way. These are refugees."

And of course O'Reilly disagreed and reminded Ramos that children are in danger all over the world and America can not welcome them all, saying this: "We have to stop them from coming, and we should have quick hearings for the ones who are already here. If their lives are in danger back home, certainly that should be taken into consideration."

Then get Congress to change the damn law, or shut up about it, not to mention Bush signed the law and O'Reilly never mentions that, while blaming Obama for it, which is just ridiculous.

Then O'Reilly had the conservative author Jason Riley on to talk about his new book that argues liberalism and big government actually harm black Americans. Which is not just wrong, it's insane. But O'Reilly agrees with him so he had him on to promote his ridiculous book.

Riley said this: "The media continues to run to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to talk on behalf of black people, but all they want to talk about is what whites should be doing, not what blacks should be doing on behalf of themselves. They want a narrative out there that all the problems in the black community are a result of white racism, not a result of black behavior."

Riley even tried to explain why black men in particular have struggled over the past decades, saying this: "It's because of the approach taken by the Great Society programs. Blacks ultimately must help themselves, they have to develop the same habits and attitudes that other groups had. Open-ended welfare policies don't help a group develop a work ethic, they don't help encourage responsible parenting or child-bearing. The government needs to stop helping!"

O'Reilly then lauded Riley, but also questioned what to do to help children in truly chaotic situations, saying this: "If you're a born into a poor home and your father is gone, the message of self-reliance never even gets to the kid."

So let me get this straight, these two wealthy right-wing idiots say that helping poor black Americans actually hurts them, it's not only a lie, it's proven right-wing propaganda.

Then Kimberly Guilfoyle & Lis Wiehl were on to talk about the federal court ruling Tuesday that the federal government can not give Americans subsidies to buy health insurance, which is a foundation of ObamaCare. But another court simultaneously came to the exact opposite conclusion. Without telling you the first federal court was a majority of Republicans, and most legal experts say their ruling will not stand.

Wiehl said this: "Both courts are looking at the same statute, which says that only the states can pay subsidies. One court said that is open to interpretation, but they are not reading the plain meaning of the law."

Kimberly Guilfoyle turned to the 36-year-old Texas woman who tried to mail ricin-laced letters to President Obama, saying this: "She was having problems with her husband and she tried to frame him by mailing these letters. She pleaded guilty, the judge sentenced her to 18 years and a fine of $367,000. She's a mother of six who gave birth in custody."

Then the Republican Tom Shillue was on to talk about a new poll, that says tens of millions of Americans believe in various conspiracy theories. With no Democratic guest on for balance. Comedian Tom Shillue reacted to the fact that 23% of Americans don't believe President Obama is an American citizen.

Shillue said this: "This doesn't surprise me. I think we all know he was born in Hawaii, but a lot of Americans don't know Hawaii is in the United States. And I'm inclined to believe them - what is Hawaii other than a volcano in the ocean floor. So the president was born on a big lump of magma, he may not be a citizen and I think he should be impeached!"

Shillue was more serious about the 24% of Americans who believe the government knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance, saying this: "This gets me angry. If you think that we knew about 9/11 before it happened, why would you stay here? I would go to the Galapagos Islands."

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day that was once again not a tip, just O'Reilly promoting two more right-wing books.

Gene Simmons Clueless About The 1% And Taxes People Pay
By: Steve - July 23, 2014 - 10:00am

Gene Simmons, bassist and frontman of KISS, said something in an interview last week that caught the attention of Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler.

Simmons said this: "The 1 percent pays 80 percent of all taxes. Fifty percent of the population of the U.S. pays no taxes. The 1 percent provides all the jobs for everybody else. If the 1 percent didn't exist, there would be chaos and the American economy would drop dead."

That statement got him four Pinocchios, the blog's highest rating for "whoppers."

Kessler notes that Simmons ridiculous claims echo the infamous 47% comments by Mitt Romney, who the rocker supported for president in 2012. But while Romney said the 47% "who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them," pay no income tax, Simmons claimed they don't pay any taxes at all.

Which is a lie, just because someone is not paying INCOME tax does not mean they are not paying payroll taxes, state taxes, city taxes, gas taxes, property taxes, etc. which contributes to programs like Social Security and Medicare.

But even worse than the "no taxes" claim is the idea that the 1% pays 80% of all taxes. Kessler wrote this:
KESSLER: The top 1 percent actually pays about 26 percent of all federal taxes. (A report from the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy pegs the figure at nearly 24 percent if state and local taxes are included.)

Even if you count only income taxes, it works out to 34 percent. Note that the top 1 percent pays just 4 percent of payroll taxes, as the burden of those taxes falls more heavily on the lower and middle classes.
Simmons may enjoy the 1% lifestyle, but he needs to get his facts straight, The top 1 percent does pay a large share of taxes (and has a large share of income) but his claims are just wrong, especially when talking about all taxes.

And the working men and women who pay most of those payroll taxes earn that money working real jobs, not being CEO's and Rock Stars, who mostly pay taxes by making money with money, not sweating at backbreaking jobs doing manual labor. Simmons is your typical right-wing clueless rich guy, and most likely a jerk.

Proof The O'Reilly Factor is Biased Against Barack Obama
O'Reilly said he is a non-partisan Independent, who is fair to both sides, and that he has been fair to Barack Obama. To check that claim I did a 3 month study of the Factor, it started on August 1st, 2008, and ran until October 31st, 2008. I watched the Factor every night and counted the negative and positive comments for Obama and McCain.

Visit the web page I set up, and you will see the stunning bias from O'Reilly and his mostly Republican guests against Barack Obama. Then you will see there is no doubt Bill O'Reilly is a dishonest and biased Conservative. This study is conclusive proof that O'Reilly is in the tank for John McCain.

Proof O'Reilly Lied About The Balance on His Show
O'Reilly claims the factor is balanced, and that he personally makes sure every week he has an equal number of Republican and Democrat guests. This is a bold faced lie, and I can prove it. I put together a web page that shows the guest list from the factor for the last 2 weeks. Read it and you will see with your own eyes that Bill O'Reilly is lying when he says the factor is balanced.

And remember that we are 3 weeks before a major Presidential election, or the Republican bias numbers would be worse than it is normally. O'Reilly is actually having more Democrats on than he usually does, and the balance is still not even close. If we were not so close to an election it would be a lot worse.

O'Reilly Sucks Investigation: Dishonesty, Deception, And Bias By Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly claims there are no Republicans or Conservative groups that rival George Soros. O'Reilly said the top three conservative tax-exempt foundations are totally dwarfed by Soros and the radical Ford Foundation. And that they have 15 times more the assets. George Soros net worth is $8.5 billion, the Ford Foundation has a net worth of $13 billion. But the seven billionaires who donate to Newt Gingrich and other right-wing causes have a combined net worth of $34.8 billion dollars.

Somehow O'Reilly claims that Soros and the Ford Foundation have 15 times more the assets than anyone on the right. When the seven billionaires alone who give money to Newt, have roughly $14 billion more than Soros and the Ford Foundation combined.

(( Right-Wing Hate Speech Ignored by Bill O'Reilly ))
O'Reilly claims there is no hate on the right, that it's all on the left. But the way he defines hate is ridiculous, if a liberal blog or website writes an article that criticizes George W. Bush (or any Republican) O'Reilly calls it hate. When it's not hate, it's reporting the facts, there is no hate. A great example is when websites like,, etc. criticize O'Reilly he calls it hate, and says they are hate groups who lie about him.

That is a lie, it is not hate, and they are not hate websites. There is real hate on the internet, but O'Reilly does not report it, because most of it is from the right. I have documented this hate in my blog and on a web page, all of it was ignored by Bill O'Reilly, and it was never reported on the Factor.
