The Daily Ignominious: Bill O'Reilly Revisits Tax Increase Lie

Fox News makes no pretense if garners great success (viewership revenue) by  appealing to   "all things" non-progressive with an obvious conservative slant to all broadcast segments. The networks chief Right-Wing propagandist (AKA host): Bill O'Reilly, deploys particularly insulting degrees of lies in broadcast segments with absolute comfort and without regard for refuting data. He and his production team know that they simply have to broadcast "it", and "it" becomes gospel to his large viewer base. 

The 2014 Obama has increased taxes on the rich by 442% was bunked and for quite sometime buried in a mass grave among a of plethora common Right-wing lies.

Politifact....."Obama has proposed 442 tax hikes since taking office," said Americans for Tax Reform in an April 14 press release."

"Obama has proposed 442 tax hikes since taking office."
— Americans For Tax Reform on Monday, April 14th, 2014 in in a press release

If you do to care for Politifact analysis and reporting, try Fact Check Dot Org

The 60-second ad was announced May 16. Crossroads GPS said it would run in 10 states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia) at an initial cost of $8 million. It is the first salvo in what the group says will be a month-long, $25 million ad initiative intended to “frame the national debate on jobs, the economy, ObamaCare and government debt.”
If we Jump this a recent O'Reilly broadcast, we find this...... (Note: O'Reilly and his team with doubt know this segment is based on outright lies.) First the screenshot from Media Matters;  then we offer a Media Matters a video segment that is a must watch.

Media Matters 
Yes. The screenshot is real.
"since taking office, President Obama has proposed a whopping 442 tax increases" and asking, "how much more can the government take from the affluent without crashing the entire free market economy?":
Didn't O'Reilly recently decry the state of journalism has deteriorated to nothingness?

One more minute......

O'Reilly's audience soaks this stuff up like a sponge during a rarely rain shower in Death Valley, Nevada.

The Daily Ignominious: Fox News, Rand Paul And The Deception Continues!

Fox News Does it best! The network shows exactly why the USA is no longer an exceptional nation. The extent to which the 92% white party exist with copious numbers of its racist and bigots thriving within Fox viewership one should induce wonder about the GOP's net long-term effect on the greater society. While racism and bigotry are mental deficiencies innate and inherent to families while nurtured via school and friends, we now have a media vehicle for its spread and proliferation. Fox News practices racial divisiveness via its non-coverage of any news items that show the sick underbelly of the GOP.  

Watch as Fox News fulfills its role in service to conservative America. 

Greg Proops, Gilded balloon
How dd that end up in this post?

GOP minstrels exhibits (A,

B)while many in their party show the real core of the GOP.     
If you watched the video, you just witnessed an example of people who will claw like a dying animal for booking on Fox News. Each GOP showcase guess is aware their party is beset with levels of racism that oozes at the corners like a can of counter popped refrigerated biscuits. They know when booked their role is to join Fox in spewing contempt  for any person or entity who does not accept their "house" Negro view of a party that  is clearly inbred with over-the-top racism and insensitivity towards all things non-white. No matter the language nor their extent of sophism, the two people are false prophets who over the long run accomplishes no good for the GOP. Why not go on Fox News and rail about deep racism in the party? Why not simply avoid following Sean Hannity's lead statements and work to better the social core of their party? Of course, my questions are rhetorical.  Fox would not book Rice and Scott for honest assessment of deep rotted racism in the GOP.

Why provide a forum for open dialog on topics that will become critical to the GOP? Hannity actually doesn't question certain guest. He frames the parameters of guest responses and no one strays from his script. Any guest who would stray the script would receive a mini-Bill O'Reilly emotional breakdown replete with copious amounts of horrific facial expressions, raised voices and inadvertent anger lades spit-um. 

Growing racism aside lets take a look at Fox from another angle. Well, I stand correct race is also at the core of the next Facebook, embed. Rand Paul provides a platform for the insane racially insensitive views and comments of Fox News's number of legal demagogue. 

Rand Paul says: "Judge Napolitano gets it."

It seems Fox News viewers ravish exposure to race based reporting and stories like no other network

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Republican Jingoism... GOP Bully ,The Newest Release!

We all Know Representative Grimm (R) NY is a frequent on-air pundit for all things GOP and a major contributor to Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS). He is a talking-point/Playbook guy that actually rivals the twisted non-stop ramble of Marsha Blackburn (R) TN, and the inimitable Sarah Palin (Alaska Governor; quit mid-term). Yes, Grimm is as visible as they come and seems to love the camera. If the representative loves a camera, would would think he has developed a level of wherewithal in interacting with reporters. Unless, and of course, Grimm has something to hide.

A quick search around Google indicates Grimm is a major support of Chris Christe's handling of the Bridgegate Scandal.  Apparently, Grimm felt Christe summarily 'firing' a top aide and his issuing an apology wipes the slate clean.

Grimm literally threatened to "throw the reporter over the balcony." Chris Christe is a bully without question, yet he has never psychically threatened to (effectively) kill a person posing a question. He certainly hasn't shown internal immaturity such that he would threaten serious bodily harm to a reporter. A reporter with a camera technician within feet.
Scotto tweeted on Tuesday morning that Grimm had called him to apologize.
@repmichaelgrimm called to apologize. He said he "overreacted." I accepted his apology.
[NY1 ]

If you know of our credos, you know how we feel about the 'perfunctory" apology. Basically, the issuance of an apology after behavior exhibited by Grimm is as relevant as expecting Grimm to openly and fairly posit on issues related to President Obama. His words are shallow and we suspect prompted by party leaders and cohorts vs. sincere.

You know what is coming next. Do you think Scotto would have been in a position to tweet about the threat and apology, if Grimm had completely lost-it and actually thrown him over the balcony? Fortunately, Grimm was simply being a bully and not an impulse killer. We notice the threatened reporter appeared to be the perfect psychical specimen for bullying. Thus, we suspect Grimm would not have gone "bully" had the reporter possessed a physical make-up that would make Grimm think about the errs of his ways.

The "tough-guy" representative from Staten Island, left the scene after calling the reporter a "boy' and not a man.  Wow! 

How very professional and classy?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Rand Paul And (BORROWING) Speeches [VIDEO]

When people live disingenuous lives, they often do little harm to others. They are their own worse enemy and they often lose battles with themselves. Yet, once the person becomes a politician, the person's dis-ingenuity takes on an affect of a very different being.

While I will not use idiotic and fairly tales to describe the revelations about Rand Paul, the tea party politician is showing increasing levels of weirdness, zaniness, and outright manipulation.  All lead to a politician who is on a mission (the US Presidency), and who is willing to completely opportunistically mask himself.  We will ignore his ill advised speech at Howard University,  we will pass on comment about his finger in the nose talk, and we won't go back three years to his rambling and inane comments on the Maddow Show.  Our reference is much more recent, and a very much phony. Phony with a purpose  and reminds of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.

Paul is now on the defensive regarding his very obvious plucking verbiage from Wikipedida to assist in building a speech.  Rachel Maddow again broadcast a segment on Paul and his latest conversion to Mr. Hyde.

Maybe Kentucky Senator Paul is suffering form his separation from his long time spokesperson: The Southern Avenger!

What a sad state of affairs.

UPDATE:  A little icing for this Paul cake....

Rachel Maddow says Rand Paul's 'Gattaca' speech 'was totally ripped off of Wikipedia'

There’s no love lost between Rachel Maddow and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
The MSNBC host for years has criticized the rising Republican star and libertarian during her evening talk show. So when Maddow went on a rant about a recent stump speech Paul gave on behalf of Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, at first it seemed like business as usual.
During remarks Oct. 28 at Liberty University, Paul ventured into a diatribe against eugenics -- a sensitive topic in Virginia, where until 1979 it was legal to sterilize the mentally disabled -- when he brought up the 1997 sci-fi thriller Gattaca, starring Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman and Jude Law.
It’s at that point Maddow said he got into trouble, claiming Paul’s comments about the movie were "totally ripped off of Wikipedia."

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Reince Priebus RNC Chair

Is everything OK, Reince?

Since Micheal Steele was replaced as RNC Chair, I have been astonished at the person who replaced Steele. Now, let me say that Steel's injection into the RNC Chair position was based on the election of the nation's first African-American president.   So there is a name for such a role, but I will refrains from its use, as the GOP also saddle the nation with the "Frankenstein' Monster:  Sarah Palin. That is what the GOP is about. There is nothing, absolutely nothing below the surface in the GOP.  While Steele initially ran about playing some sort of, "I am a cool soul-brother act" replete with colloquialisms, stereotypes and references to wearing his cap backwards, Palin just ran about like a blind dumb bull. Both helped to lower the esteem of the dissolving GOP.  After Steele failed in his assignment. He failed to to capture attention from and stand-tall against President Obama, failed to provide  competent leadership to the RNC, and generally made a fool of himself in all of the precious, he fell out of favor. 

Well, I thought Steele and Palin were bad.  I should have learned years ago, never take a deep breathe thinking you have managed to weather a storm; often another storm follows. The next storm hit with election of Reince Priebus, RNC Chair post Michael Steele.  

Let me state a premise.  Reince Priebus is either not a smart person, or he is one who is so focused on obstructionism and advancing the GOP agenda, he comes across as somewhat childlike.  Allow me to offer an example.  

During a recent interview with A CNN host, Priebus completely ignores the interview questions and launches on his usual diatribes of talking points.  I am little amazed that Priebus so forcefully lashed out at the host. I wonder if it is because host is a woman. "I am just saying".

A midst the video segment:

Host:  (30 second mark)...can you just say that President Obama's economic plan has been a failure."  Take note of how Priebus opens his remarks. It is impossible to find another GOP/RNC executive who has such little management of his capacities to start an answer accordingly. It is almost crass.

The Daily GOP Ignominious

Wilson (R) North Carolina
Rep. Walter B. Jones (R-NC) 
Does the insanity and ignorance never end? OK, so it never ends, but is isn't it absolutely crazy how the stuff flows with every passing day.

Walter B. Jones of North Carolina has introduced a bill to pave the way for impeachment of President Obama related to war powers.

Stephen B. Webster of The Raw Story
“When you talk about war, political parties don’t matter,” he told The New York Times last year. 
While not directly calling for impeachment, the bill would declare “that it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war… and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.” 
In other words, the bill would, in effect, serve as a trigger mechanism for impeachment proceedings.
Webster's article places Jones' wasteful and misguided efforts squarely in perspective.
Following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Congress handed President George W. Bush blanket authority to make war, and the battlefield has since been classified as anywhere in the world, even on U.S. soil. Both the Afghan and Iraq wars were launched under this authority, and President Obama continues to claim the same executive power to carry on theaters of conflict in other regions. 
Similarly, Congress committed the U.S. to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in 1949. Following the 9/11 attacks, troops were deployed under NATO authority following a United Nations resolution which declared the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to be in breach of the U.N.’s terms. Congress did not specifically authorize those invasions, but Republicans were adamantly supportive of the president.
It is a true shame people such as the Representative from North Carolina does not spend his time, effort and legislative authority on jobs, or on improving the US economy.   But, we are talking about the GOP here!

The Daily GOP Ignominious

Ignominious!  Had you ever seen anything so skankish and classless?

OK, I know, if you are fond of Palin, you see no problems in the image.  If you are one who feels the GOP lowered its level of seriousness via nominating Palin in 2008, you probably found the image crass as a minimum.  The exhibition was not an SNL skit, nor was it a 'tickle the libido of Roger Ailes appearance on Fox News. The sexist exhibition was the 2008 VP Debate!

So, assuming we are 50/50 on how the cheap pose strikes us, how about her latest excursion into a realiy that reality she can comprehend.  It is critical to acknowledge and give credit to her facilitator, the very non-credible Sean Hannity.

What did she say?   What?  I got lost as she threw in the word codification. "Codification, of the truth...."

transitive verb

The Daily Ignominious: Sarah Palin & Michelle Bachmann

Another archive item related to how the GOP and conservatives (the less mental and more crass) are rallying around a lost cause.  No matter the shade over the window, once you raise the shade the same disgust sits for everyone to see. 

I find to easy to avoid mention of Sarah Palin when she goes into periodic hibernation after securing a few more dollars.  She speaks from an insulting  perspective about the Limbaugh issue, with consideration of her daughter who obviously did not use contraception. Moreover, Palin obviously did not see fit to school her daughter in use of contraception. OK, so Palin is not a Catholic.  But, may subscribe to some anti-contraception belief.  Can she draw solace in the fact that her daughter became pregnancy outside wedlock?   Does Palin dare posit about Limbaugh's "slut" and "prostitute" comments, when she has a grandchild from sex (possibly) similar to the sex acts Limbaugh apparently would not mind viewing via video tape.

No, Palin is simply not a very smart person who was thrust into the limelight, made after million dollars, and should go back into hibernation permanently. She is no proud spokesperson for women in American. she is very much in the wrong camp on this issue, as is generally the case with Palin. Despite a full seven plus minutes of Limbaugh excursion into sleazy remarks about Ms. Sandra Fluke. Palin speaks. Fortunately, the developer of the short video only exposed us to a few seconds of the 'ignorant one'.

The day cannot end without another example of outright, 'bat-outta-hell' zaniness.  The inimitable Michelle Bachmann speaks.


Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) warned Tuesday that President Barack Obama's contraception mandate requiring most religiously-affiliated employers' health plans to cover birth control could lead to the government limiting how many babies are born per family. 

Her comments came on Glenn Beck's network, GBTV, on the show "Real News From The Blaze."

Bachmann was asked whether conservatives had bungled the debate over women's health.

"I think that it is a mistake for us to get caught in a trap that the left would love to have us dance in," she said, adding that the "war on women" was an appeal to a "group."

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Limbaugh resorts to "rappers"?

Limbaugh Oink!!!!
You know when life has turned completely upside down and is now sucking you into what seems to be an extraterrestrial Black Hole.  You resort to analogies with people who (some of which) have made millions from misogyny. How sick is Limbaugh to reach into a community the consistently berates (the black community)?

HIPHOP WIRED reports.....
Now Limbaugh is saying that his commentary wasn't as what rappers say everyday. Reports The Cutline (this link is broken): "Talk about a double standard," Limbaugh intoned, after several callers complained that it was unfair he was forced into an apology. "Rappers can say anything they want about women [and] it's called art. And they win awards." In no way are we condoning any rapper's misogynistic or violent lyrics. However, Limbaugh is using the same tactics Don Imus employed during his "nappy headed ho-s" scandal; trying to deflect attention away from his crass statements with something that has nothing to do with other. Also, this is where we mention that Mr. Holier Than Thou Limbaugh had a pill popping problem. Cue D-12's "Purple Pills."
I personally have no use for the majority of Hip-Hop. In many cases my disdain has roots in the very point the opprobrious  Limbaugh.

Did the Right-wing mouthpiece not read any articles or comment about his actions over this past weekend?   One major compliant was pure unadulterated misogyny toward Ms. Fluke.

If Limbaugh was not feeling the pressure of his misogynist comments, and as his number of sponsors increased to twelve, he goes on and digs deeper into the asinine.

The RoadBiIke posted  (text source, no commentary from the site)

"In fighting them [liberals] I became like them," Limbaugh explained. "I do not think she is either of those two words. I did not think last week she was either of those two words."

"I became like the people we oppose. I ended up descending to their level. It's important to never be like them," he added, before reiterating that “the apology was heartfelt, the apology was sincere."…

"I acted too much like the leftists who despise me," he said. "It's way beneath me. It’s way beneath you… Everyone was being true to their nature, except me." 

Such heart felt words are very moving, like when he explained: "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."

The Daily GOP Ignominious

You have to know life is complicated when the Daily Ignominious requires actual contemplation of which conservative action takes the Daily Ignominious.  For the nation's liberals and progressives life is good; for the nation's conservatives and conservative Independents, and conservative Libertarians (most are conservative) you have to have a case of "OH NO, it will not stop".

I wrote yesterday about the spoiled kid who, if not corrected, will take their behavior to a higher level of acting-out.  Well, until someone on the Right as the 'intestinal fortitude' ( I would rather use the other metaphorical phrase), Limbaugh will continue to disrespect women and embarrass the United States of America. It took less than 24 hours of silence from the Right, to feed a very sick man and his microphone. His racism is well chronicled, now he moves to another area of psychological imbalance: a crusade against women.

Michelle Steele, former GOP chair, said he feels Limbaugh is about entertainment. If Limbaugh is about entertainment, why is it such that no GOP elected official will challenge his daily disgust?  No, he is a leader of the GOP and there is no disavowing him.
