Experts: Michelle Obama Cited Bogus Study Showing Drastic Drop in Childhood Obesity
Mar 17, 2014

When Michelle Obama celebrated the fourth anniversary of "Let's Move," her White House initiative on fitness and healthy eating, she cited a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showing a remarkable 43 percent drop in obesity rates among children ages 2-5....

But a report by Reuters health & science correspondent Sharon Begley casts doubt on the validity of the results of the study. While Begley concludes that "no one can say for certain that the claim is wrong," the results are so uncertain that "based on the researchers' own data, the obesity rate may have even risen rather than declined."
...
This is not the first time Mrs. Obama has cited statistics in support of Let's Move that turned out to be less than meets the eye.

Just last year, on the third anniversary of Let's Move, the first lady's office sent out a press release that appeared to take credit for the recent developments that "national childhood obesity rate has leveled off, and even declined in some cities and states." In particular, the White House highlighted a 13 percent decline in childhood obesity in Mississippi. But as we reported at the time:
[t]he 13 percent decrease that Mrs. Obama touted is measured from Spring 2005 through Spring 2011.“Let's Move” was launched in February 2010, so the first five years of the time period in question were prior to Let's Move's existence.

Pfeiffer: Obama Will Be ‘an Asset in Every Way Possible’ for Dems
March 16, 2014

White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer dismissed the notion that President Obama and his policies are politically toxic, despite Tuesday’s loss in Florida’s special election and a new New York Times report finding Democrats fearful of their November prospects.

Pfeiffer blamed the fact that Democrats face such an uphill climb in keeping the Senate this year was due just having so many senators in office to begin with.“That’s what happens when you win a lot of elections like we did in 2008,” he said on Meet the Press.

Gibbs: Even Though WH Won’t Admit It, Senate ‘Definitely’ in Danger
March 16, 2014

One of President Obama’s top former advisers warned Democrats that if they can’t keep the Senate in November, then that’s effectively the end of the Obama presidency.“If you lose the Senate, turn out the lights because the party is over,” former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said on Meet the Press.
...
David Gregory asked Gibbs why his former colleague, White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer, who was on the show earlier, didn’t admit the seriousness of the threat of Republicans taking back the Senate.

“Honesty can only go so far in Washington when you’re employed,” Gibbs quipped, noting that he had to put on a similar poker face for the administration ahead of the Republican wave in the 2010 midterms.“As a consultant, I can say all these things now.”

Much like Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin will soon have her own subscription-based TV channel. Dubbed "Rogue TV" and offered by digital service provider Tapp, Palin's outlet will cost $10/month and is expected to launch in April or May. Capital New York reports:

Palin's channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues. It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin.

Tapp paints a picture of what to expect, with...topics like 'paranormal,''faith,''relation ships,''fantasy sports' and 'science.'

The question remains whether Palin's channel, like Beck's, will be home to co-hosts and additional personalities offering commentary. And while Palin is currently a contributor to FOX, it's unknown what impact Rogue TV will have on that fact.

"Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page," said an anonymous source involved with the project.

Media observers have pointed out that for Beck, "The Blaze TV" has been a massive financial success and established him as a brand name all his own. But it's also cut him off from the mainstream press, making him arguably less influential. Of course in Palin's case, she's already perceived to be irredeemably on the outs with the "lamestream" media, making Rogue TV a less risky proposition reputation-wise.

It would be her first successful venture. As mayor she left Wasilla $20 million in debt, she couldn't hang as governor, her vice-presidential run was a train wreck much like her reality TV show.. Good Luck Sarah !

Hurry and get this special offer before it's too late!!!

Obama’s Paper-Tiger Presidency
March 18, 2014
Jimmy Carter has been surpassed in poor foreign-policy leadership.

Americans who are dissatisfied with Barack Obama’s leadership are thinking about the poor economy and the misbegotten health-care law. That disillusionment is justified — if tardy. But the foreign-policy failures of this administration are likely to be far more consequential, lasting, and possibly catastrophic.

What we are seeing is the collapse of American influence in the world.

Permitting people like Obama, Clinton, Hagel, and Kerry to deal with the brutal realities of world politics is like putting Richard Simmons into the ring with Muhammad Ali.

On Sunday, reflecting an innocence that really ought to be prosecutable, John Kerry announced that the U.S. would impose sanctions on Russia if it annexes Crimea and continues to threaten the rest of Ukraine. But, he hastened to add:“We hope President Putin will recognize that none of what we’re saying is meant as a threat, it’s not meant in a personal way.”

Democratic Strategists in 2014 Are Like French Generals in 1940
March 18, 2014
...
Today's Democrats face losing an election, not a nation, and the cause is Obamacare. They stand on ground of their own choosing, which they suddenly find themselves unable to defend, and they must hope that the opposition makes disabling mistakes.

That has been made starkly clear by Republican David Jolly's defeat of the better-known Democrat Alex Sink in the Florida-13 special election on March 11. The margin wasn't large, 49 percent to 47 percent, and the dropoff in Democratic vote not huge -- President Obama carried the district 50 percent to 49 percent in 2012.

What was more significant is that the well-financed, national party-selected Sink was unable to defend her ground.

Entirely missing from her campaign was a message along the lines of "hands off my Obamacare." You would have heard something like that if a Republican had advocated repealing Social Security or Medicare a year or two after these programs were passed.

But support for Obamacare has been under 50 percent since before it was passed. Democrats would be running ads showing happy Obamacare consumers if they could find any.

Latest Obamacare lies debunked.

Woman claims she lost her doctor. Lie. Woman claims she couldn't afford out of pocket costs for leukemia treatment. Lie (they were cut in half by the ACA). The ACA also prevents her from ever going bankrupt because she cannot reach a cap on expenditures.

So what does she do when outed as a paid liar? Straight from the GOP playbook - play the victim.

"They don't scare me... They don't intimidate me..."

Huh? Since when is fact checking lies "intimidation?"

How’s Can Democrats Run on Obamacare?
March 17, 2014

Democratic strategist Bob Shrum has some questionable advice for his party’s candidates facing the hurricane-force headwinds of Obamacare in the November elections: In his Daily Beast column, he tells candidates to “emphasize the popular provisions” and to “pound away at a Republican candidate” on specifics.

“Democrats have to stop allowing Republicans to define the election as an up or down vote on an abstraction called Obamacare,” Shrum writes.

An abstraction?!

What is abstract about 2,800 pages of legislation and at least 25,000 pages of regulations? What’s abstract about nearly 6 million people losing the health coverage they liked and being forced into the Obamacare exchanges where health insurance is more expensive, deductibles are sky-high, and networks are limited to a short list of doctors and hospitals? And what is abstract about citizens paying potentially thousands of dollars in fines for not complying with the law’s individual mandate?

U.S. college professor demands imprisonment for climate-change deniers
03/17/2014

An assistant philosophy professor at Rochester Institute of Technology wants to send people who disagree with him about global warming to jail.

The professor is Lawrence Torcello. Last week, he published a 900-word-plus essay at an academic website called The Conversation.

His main complaint is his belief that certain nefarious, unidentified individuals have organized a “campaign funding misinformation.” Such a campaign, he argues,“ought to be considered criminally negligent.”

Torcello, who has a Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo, explains that there are times when criminal negligence and “science misinformation” must be linked. The threat of climate change, he says, is one of those times.

Lie. The professor suggested that there is criminal negligence/conspiracy involved when "climate deniers who receive funding as part of a sustained campaign to undermine the public’s understanding of scientific consensus."

He is correct. There remains no scientific data to refute the claims made by nearly every scientists and the only assertions made against it are from people paid by polluters. When they get the science, they are welcome to present it. But they don't have it and instead lie to mislead the public.
