George Zimmerman, who was acquitted last summer in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, spent the weekend signing autographs as part of the New Orlando Gun Show. When a reporter from Orlando's Fox 35 asked him if he understands why this might make some people angry, he replied, "No, I don't."
Zimmerman said he decided to appear at the event to show his gratitude to everyone who stuck by him during the lengthy trial and meet his supporters in person.
"The concept of being able to pay them back for what they did for me and seeing my supporters face to face was something I just couldn't pass up," he said, adding that he has no plans to keep a low profile in the aftermath of the immense media coverage the trial received.
He went on to say he realizes that everything he does is "hyper-scrutinized" by the media and the public, including a speeding ticket he received last fall, and tries to stay aware of that as he conducts his life.
But the only thing Zimmerman is famous for is killing an unarmed black teenager. And he is, in many ways, the poster child for Florida's Stand Your Ground law. Organizers of the New Orlando Gun Show almost canceled the event because of backlash, but instead agreed to relocate Zimmerman's signing to a smaller venue.
Zimmerman was originally supposed to appear on the main grounds of the gun show, but was forced to relocate to a smaller venue off-site after the general manager of the Majestic Event Center where it was being held informed him that he would not be permitted on the property.
In a tweet directed at Fox News Megyn Kelly, Zimmerman called it "another company bowing to threats of being labeled racist." And btw, he sent it to Megyn Kelly because she supports him and the jury verdict, proving once again she is a biased partisan.
Since the trial, Zimmerman has remained in the headlines for two dropped charges of domestic violence and even agreeing to a later-canceled charity celebrity boxing match -- on what would have been Trayvon Martin's birthday.
Now even if you support Zimmerman and agree with the jury that there was not enough evidence to convict him of Murder, based on the Florida stand your ground law, it is wrong to promote him or help him make money from it.
What he did was wrong, he shot and killed an unarmed 17 year old kid for no reason, and the whole thing could have been avoided if Zimmerman had just listened to the 911 dispatcher who told him to back off and wait for the real police to get there. There was no need to confront the kid a 2nd time, then shoot and kill him.
Out Of Touch Republicans Vote For Rand Paul At CPAC
By: Steve - March 11, 2014 - 9:00am
Here is a great example of how out of touch from the mainstream the Republicans are, for the 2nd straight year Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll for President.
For a second consecutive year, Senator Rand Paul won the Conservative Political Action Conference's straw poll for 2016 presidential candidates. And it wasn't even close.
Paul finished ahead of Texas Senator Ted Cruz by a 20% margin, winning 31% of the 2,459 votes cast. Retired neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson finished third with 9%. The New Jersey governor, Chris Christie, came in fourth with 8%.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, second with 23% last year, finished far back at 6% after a year in which his work on comprehensive immigration reform alienated many conservatives.
Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky, once again capitalized on a strong conference representation from student organizations and the libertarian faithful who in years past came to boost his father, former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul.
The conference featured several healthy debates about appropriating traditionally liberal ideas: criminal justice reform and the elimination of mandatory minimum prison sentences; marijuana legalization and a pullback on the 40-year-old war on drugs; and reform of the national security state's surveillance apparatus.
Even as recently as the George W Bush administration, Republicans who espoused these ideas would have been labeled soft on crime, stoners or enablers of terrorism, respectively. By this year, they had the backing of high-profile conservative figures like Texas Governor Rick Perry, anti-tax enforcer Grover Norquist and, of course, Senator Paul.
The reformers pushing for these ideas did so under the mantle of expanding personal liberty and shrinking the size of government. Expanding personal liberty, in all its forms, was at the heart of Paul’s standing-room-only speech on Friday afternoon.
And I hope they give Paul the nomination, because Hillary Clinton will crush him like a bug. In a recent 2016 Presidential poll Hillary beats Rand Paul by 20 points, which is a slaughter. Hillary gets 58% of the vote and Paul only gets 38% of the vote.
And in my opinion, if you are not over 40% in the polls you should not even waste your time running. Even if Hillary drops 5 points to 53%, and Paul goes up 5 points to 43%, he still loses by 10 points, which is not even close. And with Paul being so far right the odds are he will not go up more than 5 or 6 points, if that, because he is too far right to get a majority of mainstream votes.
Robert Gates Debunks GOP Spin On Obama And Putin
By: Steve - March 10, 2014 - 10:00am
And of course O'Reilly does not have Gates on the Factor to discuss it, because he kills the right-wing propaganda from O'Reilly and the GOP that Obama is weak and Puting is walking all over him. They even blame the problem in Russia on Obama, when Putin has done things just like this while Republicans were President.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace that he believed Russia had likely secured possession of the Crimean peninsula, but rejected the idea that President Barack Obama's foreign policy had emboldened Putin, and also defended Obama's golf playing in Florida.
GATES: "Putin invaded Georgia, but I didn't hear anybody accusing Bush of being weak or unwilling to use force. Putin is very opportunistic in these arenas. Even if we had launched attacks in Syria, even if we weren't cutting our defense budget -- Putin saw an opportunity here in Crimea, and he has seized it."
Wallace even asked the ridiculous and biased question, what Gates thought of Obama "taking the weekend off in the middle of a crisis." Which he would never ask if a Republican were President.
Gates said this: "I've seen this happen year after year, president after president. The president takes a day off, plays golf. Doesn't matter whether it's President Obama or President Bush, the first President Bush going fishing. I think you've gotta give these guys a little time off. Mostly they're working twenty hours a day."
And Gates is right, Putin went into Georgia and basically took territory that was less Russian than Crimea and George W. Bush did nothing. Not once did anyone at Fox or anyone on the right say a word, he was never called weak, and Bush was even praised by O'Reilly and the right until he almost destroyed the economy.
All this Russian propaganda by the Republicans is partisan nonsense aimed at their clueless base who believe that good foreign policy is invading every country that does something we do not like, or say we will turn their country into a parking lot. The Republicans love for Putin is borderline treason and just pathetic, to watch Rudy Guiliani talk about Putin's authoritarian style is enough to make me sick.
O'Reilly and his idiotic right-wing friends at Fox are bordering on treason as well, they spend all their on air time in condemning the president and praising Putin as a leader to admire.
One week, Obama is a Marxist dictator who rules the world and the next week he is a weak and timid mouse. They don't make any sense, and they are incoherent. It's right-wing propaganda to get ratings from their clueless old white Republican viewers, who just want to see people slam Obama, even if it's all lies and biased drivel.
O'Reilly Bias & Hypocrisy On Taking The Fifth
By: Steve - March 10, 2014 - 9:00am
Here are two perfect examples of right-wing bias and hypocrisy from Bill O'Reilly. In both cases it involves a person in Government taking the fifth, one is a Democrat and the other is a Republican. But O'Reilly takes two different positions on it, depending on whether they are a Republican or a Democrat.
The first case is about the Democrat Lois Lerner, who resigned from the IRS. She took the fifth at a hearing on the IRS story by the Republican Darrell Issa. So here is what O'Reilly said about it on March 5th:
O'REILLY: There are charges that the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative and Tea Party groups, trying to deny them tax exempt status. For almost a year, Congress has been trying to get to the bottom of the situation, but we still know very little. That's because the IRS people involved, such as Lois Lerner, are pleading the Fifth Amendment.So when a Democrat takes the fifth O'Reilly reports it a hundred times, has only Republicans on to discuss it, and calls for the Democrat to talk and explain what happened. In another segment on it, O'Reilly said she should be forced to talk because she is a Government employee and the taxpayers paid her salary.
Now we get to the other story, that involves the Republican Chris Christie and his top level staffers who blocked off the bridge to Fort Lee as political payback to a Democratic mayor that refused to endorse Christie.
In that case the former top aide to Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who had been a deputy chief of staff and a key cog in Mr. Christie's political operation, revealed Monday that she would not hand over documents in response to a subpoena from a legislative panel investigating the controversial closing of lanes at the George Washington Bridge last fall, citing her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
The former aide, Bridget Anne Kelly, informed the panel, through a letter from her lawyer, Michael Critchley, that in addition to the Fifth, she was also invoking the Fourth Amendment in defense of her privacy.
And that's not all, both Mr. Stepien and Mr. Wildstein, who were also top level staffers for Christie also took the fifth. They are all Government employees who are paid with taxpayer money, but they are Republicans.
So how did O'Reilly report on that, did he report on it a hundred times and demand they be forced to talk? Did he have only Democrats on to discuss it? Did he write numerous talking points memos about it with details of the story and say there has to be something corrupt and illegal there because they took the fifth?
Hahahahahahahaha, of course not. He never reported on it one time, O'Reilly did report on the Christie scandal 2 or 3 times over a month or so. But he never once talked about any of them taking the fifth, not once, not a word. In fact, he defended Christie and said if they have not found anything by now then Christie must have not done anything wrong, even though they are still at the very start of the investigation, and the main reason they have not found anything on Christie yet is because they are all taking the fifth, which O'Reilly refuses to even mention.
Not once has O'Reilly mentioned all the people in the Christie administration taking the fifth, he ignores it. Not once has he demanded they be forced to talk. Not once has he said they must be hiding something because they took the fifth. Because they are all Republicans and it involves a Republican scandal.
So 3 of them take the fifth and O'Reilly says nothing, while defending the Republican at the top Chris Christie. Even though it's impossible to believe Christie knew nothing, when his entire staff knew not to take calls from the Mayor of Fort Lee. Not to mention, the calls complaining about the traffic jams at the bridge, the media reports on it, and Christie knew nothing, give me a break.
Wildstein even resigned over it, and you are telling me Christie did not want to know why his childhood friend (that he created a special job for) then appointed him to it, resigned. Ask yourself this, if you created a special job for your childhood friend, then gave the job to him, and he suddenly resigned from a $100.000 a year job you would not want to know why?
It's beyond impossible, because of course you would want to know why he resigned. And yet O'Reilly has dismissed it all, declaring Christie innocent because they have not found any evidence yet to show he was involved or knew about the bridge closings.
In O'Reillyworld if a Democrat takes the fifth they are hiding something, the White House in involved, and they should be forced to talk. But if a Republican (or 3 of them) take the fifth, O'Reilly ignores it and says nothing about them, as he spins and defends the Republican at the top who is most likely involved in it.
This is what O'Reilly does, and it's a perfect example of his bias and hypocrisy.
Poll O'Reilly Ignored Showing 68% Think Republicans Out Of Touch
By: Steve - March 9, 2014 - 10:00am
Sixty-eight percent of all polled and 69% of registered voters think the Republican Party is out of touch with the concerns of most people, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll. Only 28% think they are in touch.
Question: Do you think the Republican party is in touch with the concerns of most people in the United States today, or is it out of touch?
Only 12% of Democrats think Republicans are in touch, but only 27% of Independents think the GOP is in touch. Of course, 57% of Republicans think the party is in touch, but only 39% of conservatives agree.
Only 30% of whites think the GOP is in touch, and Hispanics lead with 32% thinking the GOP is in touch. More surprising, only 32% of young people think the GOP is in touch, while 26% of the age group of 40-64 think so, and only 28% of the GOP base, age 65+, think so.
In case you have ever wondered why Republicans cater so much to the far right religious crowd, it's because basically that's all they have now. White, evangelical protestants gave the GOP 35% who think the party is in touch, with white Catholics following at 31%. White non-evangelical Protestants only gave them 28% and the people who categorized themselves as having no religion only gave the GOP 23% who believe they are in touch.
What this poll suggests is that the GOP is not even hanging on to their base in terms of being seen as in touch. But of course you will never see O'Reilly report on this poll, because he wants you to believe the Republicans are loved and the majority of the American people support their agenda, because he is a biased Republican that is lying to you.
Eric Bolling Proves He Is A Right-Wing Idiot Once Again
By: Steve - March 9, 2014 - 9:00am
Last week Jon Stewart slammed Fox for complaining about what food stamps should be used on and the quality of the food they should have, including, for some reason, a particular focus on poor people eating seafood.
Stewart mocked Fox sharing all sorts of claims about food stamp abuse by suggesting they change their slogan to "we read the chain mails your grandma gets in her inbox out loud like they were true."
He noticed how Fox News rolls its eyes at everything poor people buy with food stamps, including seafood. It got so weirdly specific about seafood that Stewart cried, "What's with the f-ing fish?!"
But at least Fox News believes teaching a man to fish is a great life lesson, so in theory "they don't mind poor people eating seafood, as long as poor people catch the seafood themselves." So Stewart could only conclude, "They really do not want lower-income individuals eating any seafood!"
So the moron Eric Bolling from Fox slammed Stewart. During a segment on government dependency Saturday, Eric Bolling took a moment to hit back at Jon Stewart mocking Fox for seemingly harboring an obsession against food stamps, calling Stewart a "dummy" and offering him a chance to go one-on-one.
Bolling said this: "Well, let me school you, Mr. Stewart." He said that people are withdrawing cash with their EBT cards then using the money for things like "booze, weed, and lap dances."
He added this: "By the way, Jon, you're welcome to come on the show any time to debate it. Dummy."
And now let me school the DUMMY Eric Bolling. To begin with, Jon Stewart was not talking about the cash you can get from EBT. Stewart was talking about FOOD STAMPS, that you can only buy food with.
Bolling is an idiot, because the cash you get from EBT is different from food stamps. When you get a LINK card or a SNAP card it has food money on it and cash for some people who are also getting cash assistance, but some people like myself only get the food stamp money that can only be used to buy food.
Jon Stewart was not talking about the cash you can get from EBT, he was talking about the FOOD STAMP money you get from EBT, that can only be used to buy food with. I know because I have tried to buy other things with my FOOD STAMP money, like paper plates and paper towels, and they will not let you, the cash register computer automatically rejects any purchase of things that are not food.
You can only buy food with food stamp money, that is a fact and Bolling is a fool. To get cash from EBT you have to also be approved for cash assistance, and that cash is not part of the food stamp money. When you swipe your card it has two options, cash from EBT of food from EBT, if you do not get cash assistance you can not get any cash from it, only food.
The right-wing moron Eric Bolling does not know that because he did not do his homework, and he has most likely never been on food stamps. So the DUMMY is Eric Bolling, and Jon Stewart was exactly right. Not to mention this, if someone is approved for the cash assistance they have a right to buy anything they want with it. It's called freedom.
The Friday 3-7-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - March 8, 2014 - 11:00am
Note: The far-right stooge Laura Ingraham filled in for O'Reilly. And btw folks, what does it say about O'Reilly that he picks the dishonest far-right spin doctor Laura Ingraham to fill in for him. He claims to be a non-partisan Independent with a no spin zone, but no real non-partisan Independent would ever have Laura Ingraham fill in for them. A real Independent would find someone who is non-partisan to do it, not use a paid Republican spin doctor to do it.
The TPM was called: Republicans Jockey for Position. The dishonest far-right stooge Laura Ingraham said this:
INGRAHAM: There have been lots of interesting speakers at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, including a few Republicans who may need to so some reputation rehab with the base. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whose star has fallen since 'bridgegate,' gave a terrific speech on the economy and was well-received.Then Ingraham had two Republicans, strategist Chris Begala and pollster Kellyanne Conway, to talk about whether 2016 GOP hopefuls should focus on foreign matters such as the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And of course no Democratic guests were on for balance.
Begala said this: "There's no doubt that jobs and the economy are the number one issue, and ObamaCare is 1B. But I differ with the approach that we shouldn't be the world's police force. I'm not for dropping the SEALS into Kiev, but we do have to stand up against what is wrong, we have to place sanctions and maybe stop buying some Russian oil. We're talking about standing up to what is wrong!"
Conway argued that Americans do want intervention, but only in certain places, saying this: "Americans have been trying to distinguish between the hot spots across the globe. They want to keep the nukes out of Iran and North Korea, as opposed to getting involved in a dispute over a warm water port in Russia. They distinguish between supporting Israel and getting involved in every skirmish across the globe."
Those are lies, most Americans want us to mind our own business and work on problems in America. The majority do not want us to be the police for the world, so the two Republican guests lied to the viewers.
Then the former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington Friday was on. He optimistically predicted that the nation will be eager for a Republican president in 2016. Which is just laughable, and of course no Democratic guest was on for balance.
Huckabee said this: "After eight years of Obama, we will have greatly increased the debt, we will be exhausted militarily, and we will have lost the respect we had in the world. There is not one country on the planet where we are respected more than when Barack Obama took office. If we can communicate to working class people and explain how a Republican conservative leadership empowers them to do better for their families than they are doing right now, then we're going to win the election."
Wow! Huckabee is living in dreamland. Almost nothing he said is true. The debt did go up, but it had to so we would not fall into a depression after Bush almost destroyed the country. And now the debt is going down, which Huckabee failed to mention. And the working class people are not going to vote Republican, so that is a joke.
And as far as the nation being eager for a Republican president in 2016, that is a flat out lie. Remember the last Republican President, George W. Bush, who almost destroyed the country. I do not know anyone who is eager for more of that. Not to mention this, if you look at the 2016 polls, Hillary Clinton is crushing every Republican she could possible face, including Huckabee.
A recent Politico.com in February of 2014 shows that Hillary is beating Christie by 16 points, she has an 18 point lead over Rand Paul, a 17 point lead over Mike Huckabee and a 15 point lead over Paul Ryan. In each of these matchups, Clinton earns at least 55 percent of the vote. So Huckabee is a fool to say the country is eager for a Republican President, because it's a lie.
Then Ingraham talked about a Cross Controversy, that only Republicans care about. A group called American Atheists is fighting to remove a cross that will be on display at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The group claims the mere sight of the cross can cause "mental anguish" and "dyspepsia" among atheists. So the Republican Gretchen Carlson was on to discuss it, with no Atheist guest for balance.
Carlson said this: "The beams shaped like a cross were found two days after the 9/11 attacks, and it was a huge deal because so many people found hope and a reason to continue going on when this symbol emerged from the rubble. This is a historical symbol now, which is why it will be in the museum. When I look at it, because I'm a Christian, I think of the cross in a religious way. But if other people want to just say it's a piece of history, so be it. I don't see how it can be offensive to anybody."
Ingraham added that the atheists complaint has already been rejected by one court, saying this: "A district court ruled that the cross does not create an 'undue entanglement' of religion with the state. This complaint is preposterous, but it's par for the course for the atheists."
And finally, Bernard McGuirk was on to name the week's most ridiculous people. And as usual no Democratic guests were in this segment to name their pinheads.
McGuirk cited the New Jersey residents who took offense when a deodorant commercial referred to their state as the armpit of America, saying this: "I would say this to the people of New Jersey. This was an ad for an armpit deodorant, but just be glad it wasn't an ad for toilet paper. But New Jersey does have an image problem - you had The Sopranos, the Jersey Shore miscreants, and the Real Housewives of New Jersey. New Jersey is to New York what I am to Tom Brady. If Brady and I go to a club, nobody's looking at me."
Speaking of New Jersey, McGuirk smacked the Rutgers professors and students who are protesting because former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will deliver the school's commencement address, saying this: "These people are a disgrace, they are the armpit hair of America. It's awful what they're doing to her and what they really resent is that she's a black Republican."
O'Reilly's America In Decline Is Right-Wing Propaganda
By: Steve - March 8, 2014 - 10:00am
Thursday night O'Reilly said this in his ridiculous TPM called America in Decline:
O'REILLY: The stark truth is that America is getting weaker. Let's start with economics. During President Obama's five years in office, median income for Americans has dropped by about 7%. We have elected politicians who favor 'social justice' over a robust marketplace, and the Democratic Party has imposed a huge tax burden on private business and affluent consumers.And now the facts, almost all of that is right-wing propaganda. I can not go through all of it, but I will show you that most of it is a lie.
To hear O'Reilly and conservatives tell it, President Obama is a serial tax-raiser who has increased taxes on millions of Americans. But according to the latest data from the Congressional Budget Office, tax rates under Obama hit a 30-year low in 2009, in part because of the tax cuts he implemented in response to the country's economic downturn.
Americans paid the lowest tax rates in 30 years to the federal government in 2009, in part because of tax cuts President Obama sought to combat the Great Recession.
During Obama's first year in office, the average tax rate paid by all households fell to 17.4 percent, down from 19.9 percent in 2007, according to the CBO. The 2009 rate was significantly lower than the previous low of 19.4 percent in 2003 and well below the 30-year average of 21 percent.
President Obama cut your taxes, he cut the payroll tax as part of his $787 billion dollar stimulus bill, so you made more money on your checks. There was no tax increase, it is all made up by O'Reilly and his Republican friends. And btw, that payroll tax cut gave an average family an extra $65 a month.
The reason disability applications are on the rise is because baby boomers are getting older and they are disabled, so they can not work. These are the baby boomers from the soldiers who came home from WWII and had kids. Now they are in their 50's and 60's and they are too disabled to work.
And most of them are people who worked their whole life and paid into social security, so they earned that disability money. It's not like they were just bums their whole life who did not work or pay into the system, they did work and they did pay into the system, and that money is supposed to be there for them if they need it.
O'Reilly implies that all these new disability applications are all frauds, which is just not true, and the facts show that 97% of them are really disabled, only 3% turn out to be frauds.
The big lie from O'Reilly is the economy, he says it is in trouble and in decline, when the facts show the opposite. We hear a lot about this fictional liberal land under President Obama, where job creation was killed by Obamacare and liberal ideas have destroyed the country.
The reality, of course is quite different. In fact, reality is almost the exact opposite. For Bush’s entire 8 years, job growth was just 1.1 million. Yet under Obama, the private sector has had 48 straight months of job growth, with businesses adding 8.7 million jobs.
February's job numbers are a good example of the lies. "Nonfarm payroll employment rose by 175,000 in February, and the unemployment rate, at 6.7 percent, changed little," per Erica L. Groshen, the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
And this was done with almost the whole country suffering through below zero record low temps, and record snowfall amounts.
Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, put these numbers in perspective in a statement in which he explained that February was the 48th straight month of private sector job growth, "February 2014 was the 48th straight month of private-sector job growth, with businesses adding 8.7 million jobs over that time."
This matters because we hear a lot from O'Reilly and his Republican friends about how Obama is killing jobs. However, Rick Newman pointed out in January of 2013 for US News that in Bush's first term, he created zero job growth, even before the Bush recession. "When Bush began his first term in January 2001, total nonfarm employment was 132.47 million. When his second term began four years later, it was 132.45 million, or effectively zero job growth."
In Bush's entire 8 year term, the total job growth was just 1.1 million. Obama created more jobs in his first term than Bush did in his entire 2 terms. While things are far from great, Republicans really shouldn't be pointing fingers and screaming about job numbers that are much better than their party created.
Job numbers are typically impacted by bad weather but the job growth rate still picked up. Jason Furman explained, "Despite a major snowstorm that hit the East Coast during the reference week for the labor market surveys, the rate of job growth picked up from the December and January pace."
Furman elaborated, "This week, the President put out a budget that can make progress on these issues by investing in education, job training, and innovation, by expanding tax credits for working Americans, and by extending the emergency unemployment benefits that has expired for 2 million Americans. And while the President encourages Congress to act on his proposals, he will also continue to take action on his own wherever possible to support job growth and expand economic opportunity."
But Republicans already said they would not consider the President's budget, so Obama is already working with governors in a regional effort to raise the minimum wage. The Republicans in Congress not only don't want to raise the minimum wage, but are now making noise about killing it all together. They just threw 2 million off of emergency unemployment benefits in addition to blocking a bill for veterans benefits as well.
So O'Reilly blames it all on Obama, while the Republicans block every jobs bill Obama tries to pass. He never mentions Bush, or the fact that the Republican party is blocking every jobs bill the Democrats try to pass, and doing everything they can to hurt the economy, like refusing to vote to extend the unemployment benefits.
When it comes to which party we can trust with the economy and with jobs, it is the Democratic Party that paid for programs as they went, balanced the budget, got a surplus, added more jobs, and stayed a steady course instead of the Republican corrupt style of totally unregulated industry.
This is not to claim that things are great. We have a lot of work to do, especially for the middle and working classes. But Democrats will have to do that work alone, as Republicans have made it clear that they will do nothing but obstruct any efforts to make things better.And O'Reilly spins it all to blame Obama, when it's the Republicans who are blocking every bill that would create jobs and help the economy and the working men and women.
Jon Stewart Slams GOP Senators For Blocking Veterans Bill

And btw, Bill O'Reilly has still not said one word about this story, even though he claims to care about the veterans.
With a shot at O'Reilly for reporting about Travolta and not reporting the GOP blocked the veterans bill, Instead of giving John Travolta grief on Twitter over mispronouncing Idina Menzel's name during the Academy Awards, Daily Show host Jon Stewart suggested on Wednesday, Americans should be angry with Senate Republicans for derailing bills benefitting both veterans and military sexual assault survivors.
STEWART: "I guess my question is, why do these senators get to stay in office? Maybe if we frame their actions in ways that we know generate real outrage in America -- by prioritizing sanctions on Iran over the health and safety of our existing veterans, I think these senators may have just tweeted out a picture of their enormous b-lls. Now can we kick them out?"
The national "shame-o-meter," Stewart argued, was broken, since Americans put "d-ck pic tweets" at the top of the scale and stiffing veterans out of $21 billion in benefits at the bottom. Instead, he suggested inverting their positions, since GOP senators like Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Richard Burr (R-NC) were guilty of making hypocritical arguments against the bill and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
"So the VA is wasteful, often, and ineffective. This is true, and adds to the debt for this bill," Stewart conceded. "But apparently those were things that these senators didn't worry about in 2008, when they voted to continue funding the Iraq war despite the Pentagon being unable to account for a missing $15 billion worth of sh-t that we bought."
Stewart then ripped Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) explanation for attaching sanctions against Iran to the benefits bill, in which he said that the country would need to rely on veterans "to take care of the problem" of Iran's nuclear capabilities.
"See that? We can't afford to properly take care of our existing veterans when we know how many more veterans we're about to create with our inevitable war with Iran," Stewart said sarcastically. "It's just bad economics."
And I would add this, dear voters, remember this and do not vote for any Republicans, especially Senators. Remember they blocked a veterans bill by putting a poison pill amendment in it to put sanctions on Iran, which had nothing to do with the bill. Then they refused to remove the amendment, and voted the bill down.
They did this while claiming to support the veterans 100 percent, so they are liars, and you should not vote them into office and the people who are there should be voted out of office. They could have voted on the Iran sanctions in it's own bill, instead they put it in the veterans benefits bill, where it did not belong, and it did not work, instead of getting the Iran sanctions they ended up killing the veterans benefits bill.
The Thursday 3-6-14 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - March 7, 2014 - 11:00am
The TPM was called: America in Decline. The biased and dishonest Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: Russia's violation of international law raises an unpleasant question: Is the USA now incapable of confronting dangerous behavior? The short answer is no, we can still right wrongs if we have the will. But the stark truth is that America is getting weaker.And now the facts, most of that is right-wing spin and not true. Since Obama took office the economy has improved, jobs are coming back, the stock market is hitting record highs, and people are getting health care at a good price now. O'Reilly ignores all that and never mentions the fact that most of what he said were problems in America were cause by George W. Bush and the Republicans.
And what's really funny is that during the Bush years when a liberal wrote that America was in decline under Bush O'Reilly slammed them for it, called them Un-American traitors, and even said they were America haters. Now he is doing the very same thing he called liberals un-American traitors for.
When Bush was in office O'Reilly also said that you should not speak out against the President, that you should support him because he is the President. Now he id doing the very same thing he said you should not do. He slams Obama pretty much every day and calls him a weak leader. But when liberals called Bush a stupid man and said he should not be President, O'Reilly called them out and said they are America haters. It's hypocrisy gone wild.
Then O'Reilly had the far-right stooge Laura Ingraham on to discuss it, who of course agreed with his idiotic talking points, and there was no Democratic guest on for balance, with her or after her. So the whole thing was all right-wing spin by O'Reilly and then Ingraham, making it nothing but 8 non-stop minutes of right-wing propaganda with no opposing view for balance.
Ingraham said this: "I sadly agree with you. On my radio show I've been doing a segment called 'America in Decline,' tracking cultural decline, religious decline, economic decline, and our decline in influence in foreign policy. You mapped it out and people are nodding their heads in agreement. The question for America is how we turn this around."
Ingraham even said that some very patriotic Americans are bearing the brunt of the burden, saying this: "There are a lot of traditionalists who feel like the system is rigged against them. There are special interest groups and politically protected classes that are catered to, but Christian conservatives feel like there is a target on their backs. It's going to take incredibly deft leadership for this to turn around."
Which is just insane, it's like Ingraham and O'Reilly live on a different planet, because they are not living in reality. Everything they say is right-wing spin and 99% untrue. Things are not great, but they are pretty good, if we just raise the minimum wage to $10.00 an hour, add more jobs, and get everyone health care the country would be doing pretty good. But if you ask O'Reilly and Ingraham we are on the brink of disaster, which is just laughable.
Then the Republican Ed Henry was on to talk about a new poll that shows only 38% of Americans approve of President Obama's job performance. O'Reilly asked Henry how the administration is reacting to the poll.
Henry said this: "Presidents in their second term get into a bubble, and they hear the criticism from all sides. It's not only coming from the right for President Obama, he's got the left coming at him for NSA surveillance. The poll numbers boil down to one thing, and that's a lack of credibility."
O'Reilly theorized that President Obama may not be overly concerned with poll numbers, saying this: "The president firmly believes, and so do his acolytes, that he'll go down in history as a pioneer, a visionary, and a good president."
And what's funny is that under Bush O'Reilly never reported his poll numbers when they dropped under 50%, he never even talked about it, unless someone on the show mentioned it, then he said the poll numbers for Bush do not matter, he said what matters is that Bush is doing what he thinks is right for the country. Now he slams Obama for the same thing he defended Bush over, proving his right-wing bias once again.
Poll numbers go up and down, and I would bet they go back up to around 50% before Obama leaves office. In a year or so when the health care system is working great and the economy gets better the approval rating for Obama will go up. O'Reilly never talked about it when it was over 50%, but now that it's dropped below 50% he talks about it all the time. When under Bush he ignored it and said it does not matter.
Then Heather Nauert was on for mad as hell, she responded to mail from viewers who are teed off for various reasons. One of them, Michael Doyle of Connecticut, is irate because welfare payments have subsidized illegitimacy.
Nauert said this: "When the 'war on poverty' began back in the 1960's, just 6% of children were born out wedlock, but now it's about 40%. There is a financial incentive - you get more money if you have these children out of wedlock. Welfare pays more than a minimum wage job in 35 states."
Which is pretty sad, when welfare pays more than minimum wage you have a problem, it means the minimum wage is too low. It's a big reason why people do not want to work, and it should be corrected. But of course most Republicans oppose that, while crying about all the people on welfare.
New Yorker Sandy Todd is ticked off because New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is intent on closing charter schools, even those that have been effective. "Many on the left fundamentally do not agree with charter schools," Nauert said, "they believe it takes money away from traditional public schools. The schools he's closing down are good schools and the parents want their kids in these schools."
What O'Reilly and Nauert failed to mention is that the Charter schools want free space in public schools paid for with taxpayer money, as they get rich teaching the classes.
Then the Republican Megyn Kelly was on to explain the latest changes in the Affordable Care Act. With no Democratic guest on for balance, making it a one sided biased segment with 2 people that do not like Obama or the health care bill he passed.
Kelly said this: "This is the 31st delay, but the president says the law is working just as it should. This one is blatantly political. When everybody started losing their health insurance, President Obama told people they could keep their plans for a year. And now he's adding two years to that. Coincidentally, this will move the extension of those 'crappy' plans from one month before the midterm elections to two years later."
Kelly also looked at the case against Teresa and Joe Giudice, stars of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
Kelly said this: "They've pleaded guilty to mail and wire fraud conspiracy. They were basically applying for mortgages and saying they had income that they didn't have. It looks like Joe could go to jail for up to four years and Teresa could be going to jail for up to two years."
O'Reilly made fun of the couple, and said he never watches the show. He laughed all through the segment, and basically said it was a joke. But then he did half a segment on it, making him a fool. This is not news, it's tabloid garbage for TMZ or Geraldo to report. And O'Reilly proves he is not a real journalist every time he reports that garbage.
Then Jesse Watters was on who took in a recent "Bolder & Fresher" show in San Diego and spoke with some of the folks who showed up to see O'Reilly and Miller. "I can't wait to see what it's going to be like tonight," one fan told Watters. Another seemed to be in the wrong arena, asking, "Who's Bill O'Reilly, we came for the Watters show!"
After his head-swelling subsided, Watters reported one thing he found surprising: "A few people took their significant other to see Bolder & Fresher on their 30th wedding anniversary. If I had done that I'd be sleeping on the couch."
And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: Room at the Inn. Billy said this: "If you're planning a trip, a website called Hotels.com can help you find lodging at a price you're willing to pay."
Economists Ryan Cited Say He Misrepresented What They Wrote
By: Steve - March 7, 2014 - 10:00am
Paul Ryan turned out to be something of a drag on the 2012 Republican presidential ticket, but he never lost his Beltway-specific status as the GOP's Head Wonk.
This image is greatly helped, as Jonathan Chait points out, by the fact that Ryan "ventures outside the world of right-wing pseudo-scholarship and actually attempts to engage with mainstream economic analysis" -- as in his just-released report on anti-poverty programs, which cites scores of scholarly papers.
The problem: "The mainstream economic analysis" and Ryan's policy goals (gutting the social safety net and redistributing funds to the wealthy via tax cuts) are often at odds, as the authors of those papers were all too eager to point out this week.
The Fiscal Times rounded up a half-dozen scholars who called Ryan out for misrepresenting their research, by distorting their conclusions, eliding the mitigating factors of the findings, or flat out screwing with their data. In one case, Ryan simply ignored a portion of the war on poverty:
One of the study's authors, Jane Waldfogel, a professor at Columbia University and a visiting scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation, said she was surprised when she read the paper, because it arbitrarily chopped off data from two of the most successful years of the war on poverty.Others were not so generous. One economist criticized Ryan for using his research to marry a decline in child poverty to welfare reform, when the actual paper credited a confluence of policy and economic factors.
Another said Ryan flat out misstated her research on the relationship of housing vouchers to the labor market, by a statistically significant degree, and then articulated a reductive version of her conclusion. And so on.
As Chait argues, massaging the research isn't an accident or a result of sloppy scholarship, but structurally necessitated by Ryan's far-right ideological mandates. If Ryan wants to balance the budget in the next decade while cutting taxes without touching defense spending or current retirees’ benefits, the cuts must come from social programs.
Therefore, the data he spins out must support the cuts.
When asked for a comment, Ryan's office responded with this nonsense: "We're glad to hear the report is encouraging a debate on the performance record of federal anti-poverty programs."
Which is just laughable, because the report shows that Ryan does not deserve to be taken seriously at all. He is a dishonest right-wing hack who lies to the people and cherry picks data from economic reports to confirm his lies, and that kind of man does not deserve to be in Congress, or listened to about anything.
He reminds me of O'Reilly, once you are caught lying to promote a partisan right-wing ideology you have lost any trust you had with the American people, and you can never be trusted to tell the truth again.

After hearing of the lawsuit O'Reilly said it was all lies, that it was a shakedown for money, that he would fight it to the bitter end with no settlement, and that he would let the courts decide the matter. That was all before O'Reilly found out she had recorded his phone calls. Then Mr. I will fight her lies to the bitter end with no settlement, paid her $10 million dollars to settle the lawsuit, get the tapes, and shut her up. The out-of-court settlement came on the eve of a courtroom fight over audiotapes, reports CBS News Correspondent Kelly Cobiella.
