Quick Hit: Watergate, The Cover-up, Trump's Fired NSC Director and "Fake News?"

Do you see the parallel and the reality of conservatism's inability to shed its authoritarian inclinations?  

The first 36 seconds of the linked video say it all.  The Nixon Tapes and his anti-press/media strategy nd obsession while he sought to fix an election and the subsequent coverup.

Ben Carson continues his question to bury his unbelievable remarks about his past. How can sane person unleash so much oral garbage ad expect media to leave it be when he ha declared a run for the 2016 GOP nomination for the Oval Office. Addictinginfo writer, Kerry-Anne keyboard and exceptional quick read on Caron's campaign killing rhetoric.
"CARSON: I’m not giving any information about who the person was that I tried to knife."
Addictinginfo also ran this video in the piece.

When Donald Trump garners leverage via identifying and mocking Carson obvious issues with veracity, you have to know your time in the limelights are short-lived.

Anderson Cooper, CNN AC-360, recently hosted a segment that thoroughly explores Carson's issue with lying via his refusal to agree with reports about his relationship with Mannatech (health supplements).

From CNN's AC-360 to Comedy Central'sThe Daily Show (funny and appros).

From The Daily Show to MSNBC's conservative facilitator Joe Scarborough. Of course, Scarborough will find a basis to simply ignore decades of racism at the university. Racism and bigotry also delineated via staff and educators. 
Every so often Joe Scarborough allows his rhetoric to match the facts. Ben Carson was the victim of this rare occurrence today. Watch it. Is this signaling the end of Ben Carson's conservative honeymoon?Posted by Join the Coffee Party Movement on Monday, November 9, 2015
"Journalistic Lynching" claim for Fox News. So, what is actually new? Fox managers and editors know their audience, and they successfully entertain that audience.  Carson can run around barking lies, selling a book laden with the lies and making insane comments about humankind (Egyptian Pyramids as grain silos), and Fox expects Carson to receive a GOP Foward Card?

Ben Carson is as  crazy mentally disturbed as they come, rest assured his mind is not well.

Ben Carson is absorbing the vast majority of GOP news these days. Yet, there is an issue that should garner even more attention as the GOP moves through their primary season: 2016 candidate tax plans.  I should write various forms of flat tax plans.  If you did not read nor view any of the items above, consider delving into the following. 
No matter how irresponsible you might think Marco Rubio's economic plan is, it's almost certainly worse. Let's compare...Posted by The Rachel Maddow Show on Monday, November 9, 2015

We as matter of practice reserve this space for news counter to conservative bull crap. Today, we are devoting the space to reminders of the extent to which the nation is consumed with racism. President Obama established a Facebook account on yesterday. It took only a few hours for the space to become infested with typical conservative racism. But, I and I suspect you are not surprised.  America is a most Un-exceptional nation.  

As predicted, the hate rolls in...Posted by Addicting Info on Tuesday, November 10, 2015

We Say Right Wingers Are Mean, Selfish And Hate The Poor Because That's How They Act!

I don’t know how many of you have ever read Jennifer Rubin’s column in the Washington Post, entitled “Right Turn,” but you probably should. While she’s supposedly a “real” right winger, the column reads like a parody of what right wingers think liberals think about. Seriously, WaPo? “Right Turn”? You don’t need a right winger for “balance.” Just tell the truth, and the far right and the far left will both come after you. It’s all good.

Anyway, the headline of this morning’s post caught my eye when it came across my desktop”

The left: If you disagree, you hate the poor

See what I mean by “Parody”? Everyone who disagrees with those of us on the left “hate the poor”? Really? That’s not something a gown adult woman with a job at the Washington Post would really think, is it? Or have the Post’s standards dropped so far that they’ve been reduced to picking reporters from high school newspapers to write their blogs?

Okay, let’s be fair, as I always try to be. Sometimes, reporters don’t write their own headlines. Sometimes, they don’t match the content of the article. So, let’s examine the article, shall we? Let’s see if it matches the ridiculous headline. Here’s the lead paragraph:

Is He For Real? The Demise Of Citizen Cain And Lessons For America

Cross posted from

November 30, 2011

As we view the continuing saga of a dissolving Herman Cain, evidence of his demise sprouts a new leaf. Before Cain’s campaign killing allegations of an affair hit the airways, the candidate had secured an important media opportunity. Apparently, Matt Lauer, Barbara Walters, Bill O’Reilly and (of all people) Greta Van Susteren, and others had agreed to join a group of media personalities for a New York City dinner. Cain has now cancelled the dinner.
