Video: The Worst of MSNBC 2014

Via those incorrigible rascals at Washington Free Beacon who actually seem to enjoy keeping an eye on the basket-cases at PMSNBC (so we don’t have to.)

Megyn Kelly told Jimmy Kimmel the other night that at the White House Christmas Party, there were a couple of other Fox News reporters (Brett Baier and Ed Henry) at the event, but the place was swarming with MSNBCers.

KIMMEL: Is there a separate section for Fox News where there’s no food and dirty forks or something like that?

KELLY: You mean there was something other than outside in the rain, others were, they were inside the building?

KIMMEL: Do you ever feel any kind of discomfort when you go into a situation like that?

KELLY: No, but it was funny because last night, we went in and I mean the White House looked beautiful. It was spectacular. And I was looking for some Fox News colleagues because this is for broadcast news. And I saw a couple, I saw Bret Baier, I saw Ed Henry, our Chief White House Correspondent. And then, boy, oh, boy did I see a lot of MSNBC anchors. I mean you couldn’t take two steps without hitting one.

KIMMEL: Oh really?

KELLY: I think they got a few more invitations than we got.

It only makes sense that the far-left, unpopular, activist network, would be the personal favorite of the far-left, unpopular, activist president.

Speaking of the “activist president…”

Hot Air: White House aides: Obama feels liberated and ready to be the president he always wanted to be

“This certainly has been our most productive year since the Republicans took over,” the Obama aide said, calling it, in the context of what happens in any presidency, “an excellent year.”

His “excellent year” involved every Democratic incumbent in the country running away from him and his low-40s approval rating, only to see them wiped out anyway in a mammoth nationwide anti-Obama backlash. You could understand him feeling liberated if Democrats had run on his policies and outperformed expectations; he would have pointed to that, not unjustifiably, as a mandate. Instead, “liberation” to Obama meant postponing virtually every major initiative until after voters were safely out of the way. He saved net neutrality for the week after the election; he saved executive amnesty for two weeks after; and who knows how soon the Cuba deal could have been struck if Obama wanted it done before November 4th. What he feels liberated from, in other words, is democratic accountability, which is not the sort of thing you want to hear from a guy who’s already blazed new unconstitutional trails in executive lawmaking. If this is what he’s doing in the first flush of “liberation,” what’s he going to be doing in the homestretch of his presidency in 2016, especially if Hillary has a safe-ish lead against her Republican challenger? You trust a man who’s reflected wistfully to his inner circle that it’d be easier to be president of China, don’t you? Especially with a sympathetic media cheering on his dubious, just-try-to-stop-me “winning streak.”

GAWD help us.

Obama Regime Leading From Behind On ISIS – Wants Blank Check AUMF

In an appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry said the Obama administration wants Congress to approve an Authorization for Use Military Force that would specifically target ISIS, but without any geographic limitations or restrictions on  ground forces.

Kerry emphasized that President Barack Obama still has no intention of deploying ground combat troops but doesn’t think the Senate should “preemptively bind the hands of our commander in chief” in responding to unexpected contingencies in combating the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. Kerry’s testimony suggests Obama will be seeking broader authority than congressional Democrats — and some Republicans — will be willing to approve.

At Hot Air, Ed Morrissey argues that the Regime is asking for a blank check to do whatever they want to do militarily, without a political paper trail.

Obama got elected by promising to end the war in Iraq, and then got re-elected by bragging that he’d done so by pulling out. All he did was set the stage for the war to expand exponentially, and with it the threat to the region and the West. Now Obama wants to avoid the political consequences of the failure of his policy by trying to get Congress to step in front of him while Obama prepares to re-enter the war he left behind. Republicans aren’t going to take the bait no matter how much they see the need for a forward strategy against ISIS, and neither are Obama’s Democratic allies.

The defining characteristic of this administration’s foreign policy has always been a failure to lead. It’s just becoming a lot more obvious these days.

Ace of Spades let our Nobel Peace Prize winning SCOAMF- who will never admit that he made a mistake - HAVE IT:

President Obama is a coward of impossible dimensions.

He is attempting to fight a war without alerting the public to the fact that it is a war, because he is ideologically committed to claiming that war is always a mistake, and yet for political reasons he must be seen as pretending to fight IS.

He knows he needs — get this — an actual resolution from Congress to fight this war. But, because of the political optics, he does not wish to be seen asking for one, nor engaging in the process of securing one.

Did you notice who was sitting behind Kerry at the Senate hearing holding a pink sign? Yeah, that’s right. Obama doesn’t want to upset or disappoint the likes of her.

So the Administration refuses to tell the Senate what should be in an AUMF, or what shouldn’t be there. He wants them to just guess, because he is such a clownish, cartoonishly cowardly malefactor that he can’t be seen to have actually sent over a memo.

This is the worst man — not just the worst president, but the worst man — I have ever seen in a leadership position.

Yep.

Rachel Maddow Distorted Stuart Varney’s Position On Cheap Gas To Fool Her Clueless Viewers

No, Rachel Maddow was not “humiliated” because she was outed by Stuart Varney  for ‘Lazy’ Journalism. If she were capable of humiliation or embarrassment she wouldn’t be working at MSNBC.
And no, she didn’t receive  “a lesson in journalism” after being caught  peddling a fraudulent report about Fox Business. Her low info audience only gets its news from left wing sources so they’ll never hear a correction. She knew she was on solid ground telling her “Faux News” hating audience that Stuart Varney is against lower gas prices because he hate-hate-hatey-hates our historic black president and they’ll never know anything different.
 The smirking Maddow ridiculed  a Fox Business screen cap that read, “Cheap Gas Hurts Economy?”
 The only problem with Maddow’s report: Fox Business contributor Stuart Varney was actually debunking the idea, not supporting it.

She then shared that with viewers and launched into a monologue where she made fun of the station as if it were supportive of the idea. But as Varney points out, “had she watched 15 seconds” of the program, she would have seen that they were actually against the theory.

“Rachel Maddow took me on and she got it wrong,” Varney said, adding that she had “turned to the classic style of the left: demagoguery without facts” and “twisting the truth” to fit an agenda.

“We posed the question to debunk it. She didn’t care to take time to notice that very important detail,” Varney said prior to playing the incriminating clip from Maddow’s show. “If Maddow watched just 15 seconds of the segment she showed so briefly on her program she would have known we were reciting a Wall Street Journal article that raised the premise of low gas prices hurting the economy. And we quickly dismissed that premise.”

Actually she noticed the detail, all right, and she cynically decided to demagogue the issue, anyway. What else is a lefty  going to report on, these days? The upcoming mid-term bloodbath? The Regime’s many scandals and failures? All the juicy stuff out there, has to be embargoed to protect their fellow travelers in high places. Even on PMSNBC I imagine, the War on Women refrain has gotten stale and Bridgegate is Oversville. They literally have to make stuff up just to provide content for their dumb shows.

 

“Straight White Guy Festival” Jest Upsets Diversity Police

1279_1405763864

“Come help us celebrate our enjoyment of being straight, white, and male,” the flier said. “Beer available.”

When some fake fliers advertising an upcoming “Straight White Guy festival” appeared in an Ohio town, last summer,  some humor-impaired individuals didn’t appreciate the humor or even get that it was a joke.

“This kind of thing implies there’s some kind of struggle going on for being a straight white person in Ohio,” one area resident sniffed.  “Straight white people are doing just fine.”

Hurrumph!

The leader of an organization pushing same-sex marriage whined that “the flyer is not productive.”  Thankfully, the situation provided an opportunity for a “teaching moment.”

Listen up, you knuckle draggers.

Via 10-tv.com:

“I think it detracts from the real problems of Ohio that need to be solved, that are being denied their constitutional rights because of who they are, or who the love. And that’s what we really need to work on and this is just kind of a distraction,” he added.

I’d say that whoever did this bad thing has been properly chastised. Shame on them and their white/straight/male privilege.

If the diversity police ever finds out who did the dastardly deed, they’ll publish his name and address on left-wing message boards so he and his family can be properly harassed. Then, they’ll call his employer and try to get him fired. Nice, tolerant citizens that they are.

A couple of thought criminals were interviewed for the story:

“I think it’s funny. If they want to do this, great, freedom of expression,” said Cheralyn Elkins.

“It doesn’t offend me personally,” added Collin Brubaker. “But I can think of people it would offend.”

I hope those two survived the wrath of the perpetually outraged.

The Federalist: Gay Marriage: No One Expects the Secular Inquisition:

Personally, I have no problem with gay people getting hitched, having weddings, and saying that they are “married.” I don’t have any religious objection, on account of not being religious, nor do I think gay marriages, given their very small numbers, will have any particular impact on the state of marriage as an important social institution. (Which, alas, has all sorts of problems of its own.)

But the test of liberty isn’t what happens to people who agree with the intent of a particular edict. The test is what happens to people who disagree.

That brings us to the reason why gay rights advocates insisted on the government granting same-sex unions the title of “marriage.” The theory behind this was that homosexuals suffer from a lack of social acceptance, and gay marriage would put the government’s imprimatur on their status as social equals—along with the promise that this equality is to be backed by government force.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Hence, the Secular Inquisition, which we should have expected all along.

America In Crisis and POTUS Won’t Lead: Former Officials Seem “Scared,” Worried,” “Alarmed” (Video)

Former Obama CIA Director and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has been making the media rounds promoting his book, Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace – seen by many as an attempt to inoculate Hillary Clinton (and himself) from Obama’s disastrous foreign policies.

In an interview described as “devastating” to Obama, Tuesday night,  he shared his thought’s with Bill O’Reilly on what he perceives to be the president’s lack of leadership on the world stage.

Following the interview, O’Reilly had Charles Krauthammer on the Factor to discuss what was said. Dr. K said that “even though his tone was measured and restrained,” the content of the interview was “utterly devastating” to the president.

He was basically saying this president cannot lead. He is indecisive and he is weak” Krauthammer declared.

He added “what was so interesting is, it wasn’t even in the discussion that Iraq or Afghanistan, but this won’t even be reported, but the thing he said about Ukraine where he just sort of he laid out what should be done…and he said this just outright, you said, ‘why doesn’t he do it?’ He had absolutely no answer.”

Krauthammer concluded “it’s not just indecisiveness and how tentative Obama is, but it’s also how political he is. Remember when Gates, Bob Gates wrote his book, he talked about how the decision-making about the surge in Afghanistan and then leaving in Afghanistan was essentially dictated by the political types in the white house, and you get the same thing in the Panetta book about Iraq. He knew we had to leave troops in Iraq. It is one of the worst decisions ever made by this president.” And “it was the political nature of that [the withdrawal from Iraq] that, I think, is the biggest indictment of Obama, where he put the White House concerns about the political partisan fortunes of the president above the national security of the country.”

Former White House Press Secretary under President Bush, Dana Perino, appeared on the Kelly File Tuesday with Megyn Kelly to discuss the interview which aired right before her show.

Calling it a “scathing” interview, Kelly noted that he is the third top Obama Cabinet member to openly criticize the president’s decision-making –  first Former Defense Chief Robert Gates, then former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, and now former Defense Sec. Leon Panetta.

Kelly and Perino were struck by the undercurrent of worry and alarm present in these former top officials’ books.

Perino noted that all of them have said in their books that they gave Obama advice and he went the other way. She wanted to know “if they felt so strongly at the time that politics was trumping people, then why didn’t they resign on principle?”

Kelly said Panetta seems “scared” and “genuinely worried.”  She added, “he seems to be trying to telegraph to us that he’s very concerned about the man sitting in the Oval Office right now.”

Even former president Jimmy Carter (the 2nd to worst president in American history) is harshing on Obama’s mellow:

Via TIME:

Former President Jimmy Carter has criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the crisis in the Middle East and the growing threat of the Islamic State, joining a growing list of the president’s allies who are scrutinizing his strategy in Syria and Iraq.

In an interview with the Fort Worth, Tex. Star-Telegram published Tuesday, Carter said the U.S. had waited too long to respond to the growing power of the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) extremist group, which also goes by the name Islamic State.

“We let the Islamic state build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria,” Carter said. “Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned.”

The White House sent out political hack Bill Burton – not to discuss Panetta’s criticisms on the merits – but to verbally attack him with childish name-calling taunts.

The White House dispatched long-time Obama hack Bill Burton to smear Panetta.

Via TWS:

A former spokesman for President Barack Obama, Bill Burton, went on CNN last night to unload on the president’s former defense secretary and former CIA director, Leon Panetta. Burton is upset about some of the things Panetta wrote in his memoir, which hit shelves yesterday, and called the long-time public servant “sad,” “dishonorable,” “small and petty.”

The RNC couldn’t have done a better job proving Panetta’s point that this White House is unserious and overly concerned with petty politics to the nation’s detriment.

Now It Can Be Told: Fence Jumper Made It Waaay Inside White House

Initially, officials indicated that the White house intruder, Omar Gonzalez, was apprehended just inside the main entrance. Now it’s come out that he made it much deeper inside – suggesting even greater failure on the part of the Secret Service – not to mention the predictable mendacity of the White House spin machine.

Via The Washington Examiner: 

The intruder, Omar Gonzalez, jumped the fence, sprinted through the front door, overpowered one Secret Service officer and ran through much of the main floor before begin apprehended, according to the Washington Post.

An alarm box near the front entrance designed to alert guards to an intruder was muted — apparently at the request of the usher’s office, an unnamed Secret Service official told Washington Post.

After darting past a guard at the front, Gonzalez, who had a knife, went past the stairway that leads up to the first family’s living quarters. He then ran into the East Room, which is often used for receptions and or presidential addresses.

At the southern end of the East Room, Gonzales was tackled by a counter-assault agent.

Tuesday, the House Oversight and Reform Committee will hold a hearing to discuss the recent security lapses by the Secret Service.

 

 

Video The Spread of the Caliphate: The Islamic State (Part 1)

Only thirteen years after 9/11, how could we have allowed this to happen?
