(Dem) Bayh Report: Feinstein Staff Stole CIA Documents

From the Washington Times:

Feinstein’s aides first spied on the CIA and swiped documents, Bayh charges

By Rowan Scarborough | January 21, 2015

When Sen. Dianne Feinstein took to the Senate floor last March, she… portrayed [her staff] as innocent victims of a band of intrusive agency officers who penetrated the aides’ computer hard drives…

This month former Sen. Evan Bayh… came to nearly completely opposite conclusions… He was chairman of a CIA accountability board review that portrays the Feinstein staffers as the ones who first penetrated and snatched restricted CIA files.

Lest we forget, Mr. Bayh is a lifelong Democrat. He was the US Senator from Indiana from 1999 to 2011. And he had earlier served as the 46th Governor of Indiana from 1989 to 1997.



Romney: Climate Change Is Man Made, Must Be Tackled

From a suddenly swooning Associated Press:

Mitt Romney: ‘I’m One Of Those Republicans’ Who Believes In Climate Change


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Outlining his possible rationale for a third presidential bid, Mitt Romney said Wednesday night that political leaders in both parties are failing to address the nation’s most pressing problems — climate change, poverty and education reform, among them — as he acknowledged lessons learned from his failed 2012 presidential campaign…

Apparently, the lesson Mr. Romney learned was that he need to become a Democrat. (Some would say, become ‘even more’ of a Democrat.)

While hitting familiar Republican points criticizing the size of the federal debt, Romney at times sounded like a Democrat, calling for President Barack Obama and other leaders in Washington to act on common liberal priorities such as climate change, poverty and education…

Gee, even the AP has noticed that he is talking like a Democrat.



AP: Under Pressure To Govern, GOP Moderates Take Lead

From the Democrat Party organ, the Associated Press:

Under pressure to govern, divisions emerge among House GOP

By ERICA WERNER | January 22, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a House Republican majority often driven by the most conservative lawmakers, the pragmatists are suddenly demanding to be heard.

Hilarious. Where have we seen any evidence over the last six years that the Republican majority in the House was driven by conservatives? And while we are asking questions, how come we never see any headlines about Obama being under pressure to govern. Or the Senate Democrats being under pressure to govern? (See second article below.)

These lawmakers defected on an immigration vote last week, and this week they forced GOP leaders to water down abortion legislation.

So ‘governing’ means caving on amnesty and taxpayer funded abortions.

Networks Spend 2 Minutes On Yemen, 11 On Deflategate

From NewsBusters:

Networks Combine For Two Minutes on Fall of Yemen’s Government; Spent 11 Minutes on Deflategate

By Curtis Houck | January 22, 2015

On Thursday night, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC each covered the news that the United States-backed government in Yemen had fallen after rebels stormed the capital city of Sana’a and surrounded the presidential palace on Tuesday.

While the networks gave this story airtime, they both only gave it to the tune of one minute and 59 seconds avoided any mention of how President Obama had, just months prior, declared Yemen to be a success story for the United States in fighting terrorism.

In fact, in his 2014 SOTU address, Obama cited Yemen as an example of how he was working with local government to defeat Al Qaeda and its affiliates.



Obama Met With Woman Who Eats Cereal From Bathtub

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Obama’s YouTube interview with woman who eats Fruit Loops from a bathtub turns into PR disaster as his bid to get down with the digital kids backfires

By David Martosko | 23 January 2015

President Obama was asked about his ‘first wife’ in a PR-disaster interview on Thursday after picking three of the most popular YouTube content creators to interview him.

How many of them will turn out to be former or current Democrat staffers? (Cf. Rebekah Erler.)

GloZell Green, a popular YouTube fixture known for her extreme acts like eating a ladle full of cinnamon, offered the president three samples of her trademark green lipstick as gifts for his daughters – and for the woman she called Obama’s ‘first wife.’ ‘You know something I don’t?’ Obama cracked before Green corrected herself and referred to Michelle Obama as ‘first lady.’ …

So her line wasn’t even meant as a joke.



Obama Will Not Meet With Netanyahu (Too Chickensh*t?)

From the Agence France Presse:

Obama will not meet US-bound Netanyahu

By Andrew Beatty | January 22, 2015

Washington (AFP) – US President Barack Obama has refused to meet Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who will make a controversial visit [sic] to the United States in early March as he fights for re-election.

Obama is going to pass up another opportunity to snub Netanyahu again, or to lecture him again? Still, maybe if Mr. Netanyahu would put on green lipstick and make a YouTube of himself eating Fruit Loops out of a bathtub, Obama would give him some of his valuable time.

It is a "matter of long-standing practice and principle" that the president does not meet foreign leaders engaged in an electoral campaign, a White House spokeswoman, Bernadette Meehan, said Thursday…

Imagine if foreign leaders had refused to meet with Obama during his two endless re-election campaign?

Yemen’s Gov’t Is Overthrown By Iran Backed Extremists

From the Associated Press:

Yemen’s US-backed president quits; country could split apart

By AHMED AL-HAJ and MAGGIE MICHAEL | January 22, 2015

SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Yemen’s U.S.-backed president quit Thursday under pressure from rebels holding him captive in his home, severely complicating American efforts to combat al-Qaida’s powerful local franchise and raising fears that the Arab world’s poorest country will fracture into mini-states.

Presidential officials said Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi submitted his resignation to parliament rather than make further concessions to Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, who control the capital and are widely believed to be backed by Iran. The prime minister and his cabinet also stepped down…

In other words, this was a Muslim terrorist coup. (For those of you keeping score at home, the Houthis are Shia Muslim extremists, who are the majority in Iran.



Heir To Saudi’s Deceased King Abdullah Has Dementia

From the Washington Post:

Saudi King Abdullah’s death sets up complex succession process

By Kevin Sullivan and Liz Sly | January 22, 2015

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Adbul [sic] Aziz died early Friday, setting the stage for a transition of power at a critical moment as the key U.S. ally in the Middle East struggles with falling oil prices and rising Islamist violence.

Note that the Washington Post couldn’t even get the spelling of his name right. (It’s Abdul not Adbul.) Such is the state of US journalism today.

The monarch, believed to be 90, was succeeded by his brother, Crown Prince Salman, according to state television. That put the region’s most important Sunni power and America’s closest Arab ally in the hands of a 79-year-old who is reportedly in poor health and suffering from dementia…

“Despite so many people saying it will be a smooth transition, there’s every reason to believe that Saudi Arabia is heading for rough times,” Simon Henderson, an expert on the Saudi succession at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said in an interview Thursday.

Bill Belichick Says He Has No Explanation For Deflategate

From the Boston Globe:

Bill Belichick says he has ‘no explanation’ for Deflategate

By Matt Pepin | January 22, 2015

Coach Bill Belichick said he did not know of any issue with the Patriots’ game balls in Sunday’s AFC Championship, and did not learn the league was investigating his team until Monday morning.

The real question is — does Obama know yet? He probably does, since it’s gotten a lot of coverage on ESPN.

He also said he did not know how the Patriots’ footballs became underinflated during the game. “I have no explanation for what happened,” he said…

Then why did he hold a news conference. — Oh, that’s right. News conferences don’t have to actually impart any news these days. (Cf. Barack Obama.)

“When I came in Monday morning, I was shocked to learn of the news reports about the footballs.

NIH Spent $432,000 Studying Homosexual ‘Hookup’ Apps

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Feds Spent $432,000 Studying Gay Hookup Apps

By Elizabeth Harrington | January 22, 2015

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent nearly a half a million dollars studying gay hookup apps such as Grindr.

And yet we were told a few months ago that NIH didn’t have enough money to develop an Ebola vaccine or any other Ebola treatments. (Thanks to the evil Republicans.)

The government awarded $432,000 to Columbia University to interview gay men who use GPS dating apps and determine whether it increases their likelihood of engaging in risky sexual behavior…

Boy, that’s a tough one.

The project argues that dating apps that use the Global Positioning System, or GPS, has “accelerated” the rate that gay men can find sexual partners, compared to online…

We sure hope ‘the project’ sees that as the positive thing it is.



CNN To Produce Game Show Based On Presidential Politics

From AdWeek:

CNN to Produce Political Game Show

By Chris Ariens | January 21, 2015

CNN is producing a political game show, (Adweek’s) TVNewser has learned. The blocking and testing of the show is happening this week at CNN’s New York studios.

Insiders tell us the show will be hosted by Anderson Cooper and will air on Presidents’ Day, Feb. 16. If it’s successful, further episodes would go into production.

How can it fail? It’s a game show hosted by Anderson Cooper. (We guess Ronan Farrow wasn’t available.)

We hear the program will be a quiz style game show, focused on presidential politics.

We can’t wait for some of the questions about Bill Clinton’s Presidency? For instance: ‘Bill Clinton was famous for inserting these in interns?’

As the Sony email hacking story unfolded last month, one of the more interesting TV news stories to emerge was that CNN Worldwide chief Jeff Zucker had asked a Sony TV executive if the company would consider producing “Political Jeopardy!” for CNN.

Gore, Pharrell Announce Global ‘Climate’ Concert In June

From an irony proof Reuters:

Gore, Pharrell announce global Live Earth climate concert in June

By Ben Hirschler | January 21, 2015

DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) – A Live Earth music event to demand action on climate change will take place on June 18 across seven continents, including Antarctica, former U.S. vice-president Al Gore and pop star Pharrell Williams announced on Wednesday.

Proving once again that this is a truly serious movement.

Concerts will be staged in six cities — Paris, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Sydney and Cape Town — in what will be the largest event of its type ever staged.

And never mind that none of the events of this type have ever done a lick of good for anybody, except the promoters.

Hillary Plans To ‘Astound, Intimidate’ With Fundraising

From The Hill:

Clinton plans to astound, intimidate with fundraising ‘like nothing you’ve seen’

By Amie Parnes | January 21, 2015

Major donors are ready to announce huge financial commitments to Hillary Clinton as soon as she announces a second run for the White House, according to Clinton allies and Democratic fundraisers. The Clinton team wants to build excitement about her campaign launch, which is expected in March or April. The money blitz would be a show of Clinton’s strength meant to scare away potential primary rivals.

And naturally, The Politico, which is just another arm of the Democrat Party, is here to help them do that very thing.

“The floodgates are going to open immediately, and there’s going to be a rush to get on the team,” said Don Peebles, the real estate mogul who served on President Obama’s national finance committee…




Dems Try To Kill Keystone, In The Name Of American Jobs

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Senate rejects effort to ban Keystone XL-pipeline exports

By Dina Cappiello | January 20, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday rejected Democrats’ bids to ban exports from the Keystone XL oil pipeline and to require building the project with American-made steel. In largely party-line votes, the Senate sidetracked the first two additions to a bill seeking to approve construction of the 1,179 pipeline. Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts and Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota argued that their additions would ensure that the pipeline will benefit Americans with fuel and jobs.

What a hoot. Are we supposed to believe these Democrats are concerned about American getting oil and jobs? Then why have they fought the Keystone pipeline tooth and nail?

GOP Drop (Window Dressing) Abortion Bill At Last Minute

From the Politico:

GOP stumbles over abortion bill

Republicans are forced to drop proposed legislation at the last minute.

By Jake Sherman | January 21, 2015

… Republican leadership late Wednesday evening had to completely drop its plans to pass a bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks, and is reverting to old legislation that prohibits taxpayer funding of abortions.

Which is clearly toothless, since Obama-Care uses taxpayer funds to pay for abortions. As does Planned Parenthood.

The evening switch comes after a revolt from a large swath of female members of Congress, who were concerned about language that said rape victims would not be able to get abortions unless they reported the incident to authorities.

So these women are opposed to victims reporting rape?
