John McCain: Classified Senate Report on Torture 'Chilling'
Asked about the report, McCain said it offers further evidence of the inefficiencies of using torture on American enemies. "When you torture someone they will say anything you want to hear to make the pain stop. So I never, ever believed this bologna that, well, because of waterboarding they got information," he said.

McCain said he has not read the report himself, but has "heard a lot about it."

Conservatives, not liberals, should protest ABC over Laura Ingraham
I’ve complained for years about how “to be Republican” in today’s GOP one must be “conservative.” About how the discussion, every time a GOP presidential primary comes around, is which candidate is the “real conservative”– because to be a true Republican one must of course be “conservative.” And they haggle over which candidate is more like Ronald Reagan (because the candidates wrongly assume that Ronald Reagan, in 2014, would be a conservative – he wouldn’t be).
But now we see the mainstream media making the same mistake, assuming that the only real Republican is a conservative, and usually an angry and caustic conservative at that. Laura Ingraham isn’t a deep-thinker like George Will or Bill Kristol or David Frum. She’s a bomb-thrower, and she represents a lot of what’s wrong with political discourse in America today.
Laura Ingraham, "The Great White Dope." LOL!

Here 's a hint:
Get a job and stop draining the hard working tax payers.
If you don't want me to read it then don't post it.
Another hint: this is a forum for everyone even libs like yourself.
Why is Grand Canyon University different than Apple?
The Arizona Senate on Tuesday afternoon voted – twice – to defeat a proposal that would save the private for-profit Christian school $764,000 next year – about 75 percent of its total property tax bill – and far more as the school expands.

Meanwhile, Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday signed a bill that'll provide a $5 million tax credit for Apple, for a planned manufacturing plant in Mesa.

Then again, Apple isn't a religion (at least, not to most people) and that may be a factor at the Capitol, post SB 1062.

Billionaires’ crybaby club: Someone get these whiners a bottle!
Does being super-wealthy make you extra susceptible to self-pity today? That’s the only conclusion we can draw from an epidemic of self-pitying American billionaires decrying their persecution by “despots,” and the “Kristallnacht” of rising concern about income inequality, over just the last few months.

I received my Obama social stimulus package in the mail this morning!

It contained 24 watermelon seeds, 10 boxes of cornbread mix and 10 coupons to KFC.

The directions were in Spanish.

I love Obama land.

There will be no Nativity Scene in Washington this year.

The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States Capital this Christmas season.

This isn't for any religious reason; they simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in the Nation's Capital.

A search for a Virgin continues.

There was no problem, however, in finding enough as-ses to fill the stable.

Four doctors were sitting around chatting.

The French doctor says:
Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another, and have him looking for work in six weeks.

The German doctor says:
That is nothing; we can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for work in four weeks.

The Russian soctor says:
In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks.

The American doctor, not to be outdone, says:
You guys are way behind - we recently took a man with no brains out of Illinois, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking for work.

State government dependence on federal funding growing at alarming rate

Forty-one of the 50 states have become more dependent on the federal government since 2001 — with federal dollars accounting for an increasing share of their total revenues.

This trend of increased state dependency on Washington reduces state and local control, while threatening the states' long-run autonomy.

Dr. Ben Carson: White House wanted me to apologize for 'offending' Obama

Conservative sage Dr. Ben Carson is claiming the White House was offended by his now-famous keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and asked at the time for an apology call to President Obama -- which he didn’t make.

The anecdote is found in Carson’s upcoming book “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future.”

Carson, who became a conservative sensation after the address, was highly critical of the direction of the country though he never blamed the president, who was sitting just a few feet away.

“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson wrote in the book.

“But within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

No More Lies, Mr. Cummings: Tell America the Truth

Houston, TX - April 9, 2014 - Washington is reeling as Rep. Elijah Cummings'(D-MD) true role in the IRS abuse scandal has come to light. Emails released by the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, of which Cummings is the ranking member, show Cummings and his staff communicating with Lois Lerner while the IRS targeted True the Vote for abuse.

"Today's committee action reveals what we knew all along. Partisan politics and the weaponization of government against opponents of this administration is real and continues," said True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht. "Elijah Cummings has blocked the IRS abuse investigation all along. We now see clearly that two branches of government have colluded to target and silence private citizens.

"America has come to a tipping point," Engelbrecht said. "No more lies. No more cover-ups. No more collusion. Enough is enough. Finally, we have a chance for the rule of law to be re-established, thanks to the bold efforts of Chairman Issa and Rep. Jordan."

Engelbrecht added, "We filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Cummings in February. Today we're amending that filing to include this latest revelation. As I have said in my testimony before Congress; I will not retreat, I will not surrender, I will not be intimidated. I will not ask Rep. Cummings, Lois Lerner, Barack Obama, or anyone else, for permission to exercise my constitutional rights."

Your article proves how corrupt our corporate mainstream media has always been.

For 8 years of Clinton that rightwing corporate hack media whore Ann Coulter was on CNN, MSNBC, FOX and the 3 Networks 24/7.

Truth be told how can the mainstream media be liberal when Carter, Clinton, and Obama are centrist Democrats and liberal in name only.

Truth also can be said of Reagan and the Bush's are RINOs Republican in name only and not conservative like Barry Goldwater.

I do not know how Eric Arthur Blair predicted this. LOL


The U.S. establishment media in a nutshell
April 5, 2008 /
In the past two weeks, the following events transpired. A Department of Justice memo, authored by John Yoo, was released which authorized torture and presidential lawbreaking. It was revealed that the Bush administration declared the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights to be inapplicable to "domestic military operations" within the U.S. The U.S. Attorney General appears to have fabricated a key event leading to the 9/11 attacks and made patently false statements about surveillance laws and related lawsuits. Barack Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania and had a low score.
Here are the number of times, according to NEXIS, that various topics have been mentioned in the media over the past thirty days:

"Yoo and torture" - 102
"Mukasey and 9/11" -- 73
"Yoo and Fourth Amendment" -- 16
"Obama and bowling" -- 1,043
"Obama and Wright" -- More than 3,000 (too many to be counted)
"Obama and patriotism" - 1,607
"Clinton and Lewinsky" -- 1,079
