|Chavetz is the small image of the day guy!|
We actually have people in this nation using the word “impeachment” in reference to the President Obama. One ‘super hyperbolic’ Congressman from New York, has let the thought slime across his lips and at least two conservative cable new networks are stoking the fire: Fox News and CNN. Fox News has been saber-rattling as such since day two of the first Obama term. CNN and its new conservative business model has joined in on the shark-fest with no real journalistic interest. CNN’s probing, thus prodding, is purely for sake of viewership.

ABC News reported that Rhodes wrote: “We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.” The Weekly Standard reported that Rhodes “responded to the group, explaining that Nuland had raised valid concerns and advising that the issues would be resolved at a meeting of the National Security Council’s Deputies Committee the following morning.” (Highlights via Crooks and Liars)
According to an ABC report on May 10, 2013, the misrepresentations looked like this.
After the talking points were edited slightly to address Nuland’s concerns, she responded that changes did not go far enough.
“These changes don’t resolve all of my issues or those of my buildings leadership,” Nuland wrote.
In an email dated 9/14/12 at 9:34 p.m. — three days after the attack and two days before Ambassador Rice appeared on the Sunday shows – Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes wrote an email saying the State Department’s concerns needed to be addressed.
“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”

(CBS) President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush’s final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Vice President Dick Cheney also leaves office amid negative perceptions, as his approval rating stands at just 13 percent.

Market Commentary: October 29th, 2009: 10 am (PST). Posted by Manu Walia
“Today’s moderate increase for third quarter GDP should provide some psychological lift for consumers and businesses since it is the first positive growth for the overall economy in just over a year. And financial markets are likely to like it since it is all about expectations and the advance estimate topped expectations. Real GDP in the third quarter rebounded an annualized 3.5 percent, after declining by only 0.7 percent in the second quarter. The third quarter boost came in above the market consensus for a 3.0 percent increase.”
“Jobless claims are not offering a clear indication of what to expect for the October employment report. Initial claims held steady for a fourth straight week, edging 1,000 lower to 530,000 in an Oct. 24 week that was not skewed by special factors. The four-week average is at 526,250 and does show improvement, down about 20,000 vs. this time last month. Continuing claims, where the latest data is for the Oct. 17 week, fell substantially, down 148,000 to 5.797 million and, for the first time since April, bringing the four-week average below 6 million at 5.961 million.”
As mentioned in our previous commentary this month, we believe that the economy is improving despite the naysayers and bearish economists. It is also true that the economic is primarily driven by the stimulus packages provided by the government which in turn is funded by tax payers.

The September jobs report was disappointing-but the consensus may have grown too optimistic. In reality, job losses are not nearly as severe as earlier in the recession and the unemployment rate is drifting up slowly as expected.Nonfarm payroll employment in September fell 263,000, following a revised decline of 201,000 in August and a revised decrease of 304,000 in July. The September drop in payroll employment was worse than the consensus forecast for a 170,000 contraction. August and July revisions were down a net 13,000 (the net declines were worse).

Sources: Possible suspect sought in Boston bombing
By Michael Pearson and Tom Watkins, CNN
The sources identified the person as a man wearing a white baseball cap. One of the sources added that the cap was on backwards and the man was also wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt and a black jacket.
while some of the information in CNN reporting might be accurate (We actually suspect not), we wonder about the significance of their descriptions as well as the inaccuracy of their reporting.

The message is stark, grave and eye-opening!
As stated above there is another poignant message among the many related to man-made environmental threats. Related yet different from an information perspective. If you did not know the Mayflower, Arkansas spill of two weeks ago was caused by another underground pipeline delivering Tar Sand Oil to a predestined terminal, a reliable source of information fills the gap. Addictinginfo not only reminds us of that tragedy, the information source also delves into another alarming fact: media avoidance of recent oil spills by CNN and Fox News.

Today I was struck by the fact that CNN is now no better than FOX when it comes to reporting anything even mildly controversial. To test this theory, I visited each site and entered an identical term.
The term I chose to search was “Mayflower Tar Sands.”
On the bright Red side of the internet, I found the following gems.
A very fact filled and informative article on Faux News was first on the list. “It’s obvious that the rupture was not the fault of the state and the state has been damaged in addition to the private property owners” Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said to Exxon Mobil in a terribly soft-handed and kid-gloved approach to the situation.
This one from Fox Business News, all fluff and no substance whatsoever, on how Arkansas’ attorney general is planning an investigation. Everything’s cool here, some of ya’ll can go home now! Just ignore that smell…
Over to CNN, proudly neither Red nor Blue and sadly the news here is just as anemic. In a statement that confounds the logical mind, Representative Lee Terry of Nebraska stated the Keystone XL pipeline “is primed to give our economy a shot in the arm and make energy more affordable — and it won’t cost the taxpayers a dime.” If I tried to follow the logic of this I’d end up taking a long walk off a short pier. To see why Rep. Terry’s statement makes my head hurt, consult Pipeline Timmy on Mother Jones.
35 jobs is just the shot in the arm our economy needs, said no one ever.

While we do not expect better from FOXPEN? CNN may find its current third place slip below that of Current TV. Of course, we know that is not possible, but we also know that is no fourth place in cable news. If environmental catastrophe is not important enough to garner serious coverage on CNN, the network fails as a news source. When it fails as a new source and avoids coverage of oil spills, it effectively renders itself propaganda outlet. A propaganda outlet that does not disseminate relevant news for no reason beyond political considerations and viewership.
“What we do not know, hurts us”!
Thank you to AddictingInfo and Upworthy.
FOX News P.C. Police segment. Jim Crow?
“Hispanics and blacks tend to not be as good swimmers as whites, and many more black Americans and Hispanics, actually those kids don’t know how to swim,” Wright concluded. “This is just putting — it’s not good.” (Crystal Wright, editor of ConservativeBlackChick.com)
The TPI April 5, 2013.
Bill O’Reilly once used the politically confused Juan Williams for “Color” commentary regarding getting on a place and being “nervous” (about people who appear in Muslim garb) as “Muslims.” Color commentary is most definitely a intended metaphor! Williams allowed himself to be used for backing Bill O’Reilly’s overt racism and Williams paid the price of termination from NPR. All Muslims do not wear “Muslim Garb” and most airline suicide bombers have not worn traditional muslim garb. Factually, most European Muslims do not wear such garb. That sheds considerable light on Williams’ racism.

From NPR News, this is ALL THINGS CONSIDERED. I’m Robert Siegel.
AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:
And I’m Audie Cornish.
It may not feel like spring yet in much of the country, but in Phoenix, it’s practically swimming weather. And that means a new crop of teenagers training to be lifeguards. From member station KJZZ, Jude Joffe-Block reports the city is trying to add some diversity to that classic summer job.
JUDE JOFFE-BLOCK, BYLINE: When 17-year-old Showna Wells goes to public pools to swim, she notices something about the lifeguards.
SHOWNA WELLS: I’ve never really seen, like, somebody black like me.
JOFFE-BLOCK: The city of Phoenix is trying to change that. This winter, city staff came to Wells’ school, Alhambra High, to recruit new lifeguards. More than 90 percent of the students there are black, Latino or Asian. None of the teens who shows up to hear the pitch is on the school swim team because, like many under-resourced schools, Alhambra doesn’t have one. The city’s Melissa Boyle is aware of this.
MELISSA BOYLE: As long as you can get from one end of the pool to the other with a tube and then without a tube, we’ll work with you in your swimming abilities.
“As long as you can get from one end of the pool to the other with a tube and then without a tube, we’ll work with you in your swimming abilities.“
The comment gives a marked different message than “accepting people who cannot swim and making the personal a lifeguard. I read a shared arrangement If the applicant can swim in any way (one end of the pool without tube) the Phoenix recreation Department will provide training.
Let’s end with more from Carlson and Wright and FOXPEN writers.
“This is the same rationale that propped up Jim Crow for 80 years, right?” Carlson opined. “You want to swim in a pool with people who look like you. You want to sit in the same bus or the same movie theater or use the same water fountain as people who look like you. It’s diversity.”
“Segregation,” Wright agreed. “My parents grew up during segregation and they didn’t really like to be on the beach and at pools and seeing white people be able to use a different beach. Phoenix is making no sense, and they’re forcing some kind of segregation.”

The proposed spending spree comes amid mounting signs of unrest among Guantanamo detainees that lawyers say is threatening their lives. U.S. military officials confirmed Wednesday that the number of hunger strikers at Guantanamo has more than tripled in the last two weeks — from 7 to 25 — and that eight of them are being force fed through tubes. Defense lawyers said in a letter to Congress this week they have gotten reports that “over two dozen men have lost consciousness.”
U.S. military officials denied any lives were in danger but acknowledged that resistance and frustration among the detainees is growing, a development that a senior general said is because they are “devastated” that President Barack Obama’s pledge to shut down the facility has not been fulfilled.
“They had great optimism that Guantanamo would be closed,” said Gen. John Kelly, the commander of the U.S. Southern Command, when asked about the hunger strikes during testimony before the House Armed Services Committee. “They were devastated, apparently… when the president backed off — at least their perception — of closing the facility.
“He said nothing about it in his inauguration speech,” Kelly continued, referring to President Obama. “He said nothing about it in his State of the Union speech. He has said nothing about it. He’s not — he’s not restaffing the office that… looks at closing the facility.”
I will be the first to state, Obama failed in one of his first initiatives after taking office in 2009. He clear promised to close GITMO with the coming year. As indicated in the video below, Obama had no idea the extent to which the GOP would obstruct his every wish, desire and demand. Despite the clear fact the US properly and effectively houses 373 terrorists in the US Prison System (across the nation), the GOP successfully fought back on closing GITMO.
As is always the case, if FOXPEN had no audience for their seditious lies, the lies would dry-up and go away. That is the nature of consumerism. “There’s a sucker born every minute“ WIKI
“There’s a sucker born every minute” is a phrase often credited to P. T. Barnum (1810–1891), an American showman. Though this phrase is often credited to Barnum, it was actually spoken by a man by the name of David Hannum.

It was a lie told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign — that Jeep was moving its U.S. production to China. It originated with a conservative blogger, who twisted an accurate news story into a falsehood. Then it picked up steam when the Drudge Report ran with it. Even though Jeep’s parent company gave a quick and clear denial, Mitt Romney repeated it and his campaign turned it into a TV ad.
We introduce the Politfact dot Com, “Lie of the Year“.
Did Blackburn not confirm suspicion the GOP was very much in favor of the ”Sequester?” Minutes it took to secure the Fox News and exposure to Blackburn, left me with a feeling of “dumbed-down”.
