Fox's Chris Wallace: Reaction To The Anti-Islam Video "Had Never Been In Any Of The Talking Points." On the May 5 edition of Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace cited Hayes' Weekly Standard article to claim "U.N. Ambassador Rice came on this show and four other Sunday shows, never mentioned the al Qaeda extremists, which had been scrubbed from the -- from the talking points, but did mention a reaction to the anti-Islam video which had never been in any of the talking points." [Fox Broadcasting Co., Fox News Sunday, 5/5/13 via Media Matters]

FACT: Intelligence Community Believed Link Existed At The Time
CIA Talking Points Linked Attack To Protests In Cairo. The first bullet point from what The Weekly Standard described as "Version 1" of the CIA talking points says that "based on currently available information," the attacks were "spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo." The final version of the document made the same link:

The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. diplomatic post and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.[The Weekly Standard, 5/13/13 via Media Matters]

Why, indeed?
Over at Zero Hedge, Tyler Durden has an interesting answer:
Emmerich analyzes disposable income and economic benefits among several key income classes and comes to the stunning (and verifiable) conclusion that “a one-parent family of three making $14,500 a year (minimum wage) has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year.”
And that excludes benefits from Supplemental Security Income disability checks.
America is now a country which punishes those middle-class people who not only try to work hard, but avoid scamming the system.

When it was reported in 2008 that Onyango was possibly in the country illegally, Mr. Obama said he had no knowledge of her status.
As a presidential candidate, Mr. Obama told CBS News' Katie Couric that he was not against the possible deportation of his aunt.
"If she has violated laws, then those laws have to be obeyed," he said.
"We are a nation of laws."
Onyango, however, told WBZ-TV,
"If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen."
Onyango was granted asylum earlier this year.

First, defund Obamaphones
August 25, 2013
Nothing better illustrates the impossibility of killing a federal entitlement than the fraud-riddled Obamaphone program.
The $2.1 billion giveaway, funded by a tax on every cellphone service contract, is a well-documented boondoggle — an estimated 41 percent of the phones go to ineligible recipients.
Earlier this month, my former intern, Jillian Melchior, was able to obtain three of the free phones on the streets of New York City without telling a single fib. Melchior, now a reporter for National Review, says the service reps who signed her up seemed completely uninterested in whether she was eligible for the program — she isn’t.
While signing up for one of the phones, she was taking calls on her personal iPhone.

Wow another distorted fact and another blame it on President Obama and it's his fault hateful rhetoric, coming from this bottom of my shoe gum spittle N. Finley no less, and his right wing-nut mentality. He is all for giving out tax breaks and less and less regulations for multi-billion dollar corporations. Whom by the way stash their record breaking profits in overseas banking heavens. But is quick to bash and belittle the poor and less fortunate for receiving help. And then act as if this administration is the fault for all of the ills and woes of this country. To include hurricane Katrina and I bet that some these right wing nut jobs blame President Obama for the fall of the Roman empire... All they do is spew hate, lies and twisted facts. It's to the point where the GOP's double standard is now only exposing how full of crap they truly are and that they are now only hurting themselves and their brand.

Does Obama know he’s fighting on al-Qa’ida’s side?
27 August 2013
If Barack Obama decides to attack the Syrian regime, he has ensured – for the very first time in history – that the United States will be on the same side as al-Qa’ida.
Quite an alliance! Was it not the Three Musketeers who shouted “All for one and one for all” each time they sought combat? This really should be the new battle cry if – or when – the statesmen of the Western world go to war against Bashar al-Assad.
The men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the miniature warlords.

Obama: MLK 'would like' ObamaCare

President Obama said in a radio interview airing Tuesday that civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. would approve of his signature health care reform law.
"Oh, he would like that," Obama told radio hosts Tom Joyner and Sybil Wilkes in an interview from the White House. "Well, because I think he understood that health care, health security is not a privilege; it’s something that in a country as wealthy as ours, everybody should have access to."

Study:
Welfare pays more than work in most states
Looking for a good paying job?
Well, look no further.
No, really, stop looking.
In 35 states, welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the libertarian Cato Institute, and in 13 states welfare pays more than $15 per hour.
“One of the single best ways to climb out of poverty is taking a job, but as long as welfare provides a better standard of living than an entry-level job, recipients will continue to choose it over work,” said Michael Tanner, senior policy analyst and co-author of the study.

it also compares apples to oranges.

"When it meets his personal interest, it's not a big entitlement," Stiglich said.

US Republican Hawks Line Up in Support of Syria Strikes

Prominent US Republican lawmakers are lining up behind military strikes in Syria, forming a rare alliance with the Democratic commander in chief.

With House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other Republican leaders pressing Obama to consult Congress before green-lighting strikes, the support of the party’s hawks and interventionists could be key — especially with polls showing a majority of Americans are skeptical of a Syria mission.

That’s because GOP members such as Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon of California and former House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King of New York have sway within their caucuses.

Obama is a food stamp president ,but lets invade Syria, so we can drain any money in Medicare and Social Security from those 47% of moochers we have, hell with them,lets blow up Syria ,if we lose soldiers on the ground we have more of those 47% ers that will fire at the enemy and come home in a wooden box!! Money is no object when we are at war !!! Lets break the bank and add to the debt !! NO more stimulas for the people,we need this money for wars !

Tim Scott Didn’t Speak At MLK Event Because He Declined Invitation To Attend

A source connected to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington said Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), the only sitting black senator, was not invited to speak at the event because his office had declined an invitation to attend the commemoration as a spectator, Roll Call reported.

An email exchange obtained by Roll Call showed that an invitation to the 50th anniversary commemoration appeared to be sent to all members of Congress, as the form letter identified the recipient as "Representative" rather than by name.

The exchange showed that a staff assistant to Scott, Rachel Shelbourne, sent a reply to the invitation that read in part, "Unfortunately, the Senator will be in South Carolina during this time, so he will be unable to attend the event. Please do, however, keep him in mind for future events you may be hosting," as quoted by Roll Call.

The source explained to Roll Call that the speaking program was largely drafted according to who was able to confirm availability to attend the event.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) reportedly were invited to speak at the ceremony, but declined.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) The "47 percent" of U.S. households who owe no federal income tax, memorably disparaged last year by former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, has shrunk to 43 percent, said the research group that produced the original estimate.

New data on Thursday from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center said 43 percent of households will owe no federal income tax in 2013, down from an estimated 47 percent in 2009.

Looking further ahead, the center forecast that by 2024, about a third of households will owe no federal income tax.

Republicans for years had cited the center's figures, but the 47 percent estimate took on a life of its own after Romney was surreptitiously videotaped at a fundraising event during the presidential campaign saying that he would never win votes from that proportion of Americans, who he said relied on government.

Romney, who lost the November election to President Barack Obama, later said his remarks were misinterpreted.

The center's estimate only encompasses the federal income tax. It does not include state and local, Medicare and Social Security, sales, or other taxes.

About half of the 43 percent will owe no federal income tax because their incomes are too low. The other half will face no income tax because they qualify for credits, such as the earned income tax credit and the child credit.

Feds forced churches to get baptism permits
August 30, 2013
The National Park Service began enforcing a policy recently that required churches to obtain special use permits in order to baptize in public waters. As part of the same permit process, the NPS also mandated that churches give the Park Service 48 hours advance notice of pending baptisms....
The National Park Service told local churches the permits were needed to “maintain park natural/cultural resources and quality visitor experiences, specific terms and conditions have been established.”
The feds also closed vehicle access to a sandbar along a popular creek in the Ozark Mountains, meaning churches could no longer drive their elderly members to the outdoor baptisms. And to make sure the Baptists behaved, they placed large boulders in the area to block car traffic.
“Like the Baptists and Pentecostals are going to harm natural resources and adversely affect quality visitor experiences by occasionally baptizing new converts?” asked local resident Lewis Leonard.“I can think of a whole lot more activities along the river ways that are not conducive to maintain the natural resources.”
Rep. Jason Smith fired off a letter to the feds on Aug. 21 demanding answers.
“I am very troubled by any federal rule that requires churches to apply for a permit for the purpose of baptism, especially when these traditional activities have been done in the rivers and streams of this nation since its founding,” the congressman wrote.
He pointed out the National Park Service does not require a 48-hour notification from fisherman or swimmers – so why churches?
