    Faiz Shakir, editor of ThinkProgress blog accused of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic bias, headed to Nancy Pelosi’s office

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has hired the controversial editor of a blog recently engulfed in scandal over its use of language that Jewish groups have described as anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

    Faiz Shakir, the editor in chief of the Center for American Progress’ ThinkProgress blog, is set to become a senior adviser to Pelosi and her office’s director of new media, according to reports.

    Shakir piloted ThinkProgress through a contentious period during which the liberal online outlet faced accusations of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic bias due to its reporters’ use of the term “Israel firster,” language historically associated with white supremacists.

    I have only one word for this Romney High School thing. Absurd :!:

    In the early 60’s, who cared anything about being Gay? It was the live and let live times. We were more focused on civil rights and drugs. In school, you had the straight kids who hated hippies, and the hippies just could not understand why they were hated. In the 60’s we had names like beatnik, hippy, love child, warmonger, flower child, establishment, cool, hip, uncool, way out, far out, square, beautiful people, fuzz, pig, and tripping. If you had long hair you were looked at as being a hippy, not gay.

    So Washington post

    Wait for it

    Bite Me :!:

  • RealityChick

    What was BO doing in his high school days? Smoking pot, doing drugs? If they want to dig into the past, I would be more concerned with Obama’s illegal activity and early disregard for the laws of our country.

    “Glad to see that you’re finally up. Retirement really taking hold all ready.”

    Not yet, T-19 days and counting. I do not know if I will fully retire. It is in the genes. Father turns 77 next month and as I said before he is playing in Afghanistan. I retired once before but was driving the better half crazy remodeling the house. Can’t do that in a trailer. In the mean time when she is off teaching in another state I will pull chocks, hit the road with the house and go where she is. Best thing is we will have about as much disposable income as we do now with me working. Strange how that works. :twisted:

    Cenk Uygur’s Advice To CNN

    Do your job — report the news. The real news, not dueling talking points and manufactured controversies. My God, where is your investigative team? What’s the last story you broke? Of course, the reality is that you don’t want to break stories about Washington because that might offend some people. What kind of a so-called news operation is this afraid of their own shadow? “Oh my God, what if we offended someone in power. They might not come on our shows anymore and they might call us biased.” Or they might call you journalists.

    Judge Drops the Hammer on Union Members at Hostess

    Allows company to cancel union contracts; on same day, Twinkie-maker sends lay-off notices to all 18,500 workers

    Judge Robert Drain issued an order May 4 giving the company permission to unilaterally cancel union contracts covering thousands of production workers at the plants where Wonder Bread, Twinkies and dozens of other goods are made. The workers—represented by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union (BCTGM)—may see their wages and benefits arbitrarily reduced by the company, as well as losing the labor union rights they have enjoyed for decades

    Distractions, distractions.

    Romney bullying 47 years ago was wrong , but , so was Obama’s.

    “In His Own Words… Obama Admits to Smoking Pot, Drinking Beer, Doing Drugs… And Bullying Fat Nerdy Black Girl in High School (Video is available)”

    This is what our 4th Estate is wasting their time on, when the USA has major problems.

    “Bit surprised MSNBC didn’t score higher ratings last night after the President’s endorsement for gay marriage.” Welcome back, btone31. It is always a good thing when you appear to say, ‘hello’. The numbers for all stations are way down and I think people realize that they are getting whatever the corporations want their employees to say. People have moved on to various blogs, newspapers to get the scoop, well at least a scoop closer to the truth than MSM. I don’t have a good feeling about the future, btone31, not good at all. I just filled up my tank that was not at empty, Honda Accord V6, and spent $40.00, when I know I should not be paying over $2.00 a gallon, I paid $3.83 per gallon. What can you do? Pay, pay, pay.

    @ All involved w/ incest and how an Aunt can be your mom.

    I am my own Grandfather…

    Now many many years ago when I was twenty-three
    I was married to a widow who was pretty as can be
    This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
    My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed

    Oh I’m my own grandpa
    I’m my own granpa
    It sounds funny I know,
    But it really is so
    Oh I’m my own grandpa

    This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life
    My daughter was my mother ’cause she was my father’s wife
    To complicate the matter even though it brought me joy
    I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

    My little baby then became a brother-in-law to Dad
    And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad
    For if he was my uncle, then that also made him br’ther
    Of the widow’s grown-up daughter who was also my stepmother

    Father’s wife then had a son who kept them on the run
    And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter’s son
    My wife is now my mother’s mother and it makes me blue
    Because altho’ she is my wife, she’s my grandmother too

    Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I’m her grandchild
    And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild
    For now I have become the strangest case I ever saw
    As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa.

    Hilarious and meaningless comment, but I commend you for separating pot and drugs. Surprisingly, you omitted ethanol, which is also a xenobiotic just like THC and heroin.

    U.S. Concerned Netanyahu, Mofaz May Attack Iran

    The United States is worried that Shaul Mofaz and his Kadima party’s joining a unity government with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu could result in an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities at any given moment

    The report said that when the Americans believed early elections would be held in Israel on September, they thought it meant the attack in Iran would be postponed at least until after the election. Now, with the stabilization of Israeli politics and the current government likely to end its term on schedule, the situation has changed and the Americans are concerned.

    Well dah! :shock: I am not even in the think tank and I know Netanyahu would have not called for early elections if would have put a delay and prevent a lost opportunity to strike if it arises or not be called in his favor. Just like in Congress, they only call for a vote when they already know the outcome or under pressure to get it passed. Netanyahu is no fool; he would not do this under pressure when his parliament could hold out for something in return.

    If this was a surprise to the US then me thinks we really need to change out the think tank staff quickly.

    Yes, me thinks we are clueless.

    The picture seems to be getting dimmer and dimmer! Changes his mind, drops in the poles, the VP says “sorry Boss”, Bill Clinton calls him an amatuer, and then he admits that he forget the magnitude of the recession!!!!! “The tribe has spoken, it’s time to go!!” or in the words ot Trump “YOUR FIRED!”

    POLL: OBAMA TRAILS ROMNEY 7%

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 43% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.

    Biden Said to Apologize to Obama for Gay Marriage Remark

    Vice President Joe Biden apologized to President Barack Obama for upsetting the White House’s timetable for revealing the president’s support for same-sex marriage, according to an administration official.

    Biden delivered the apology to the president the morning of May 9, before Obama gave an interview to ABC News in which he said he has had a change of heart and now supports legal gay marriage, the official said.

    Bill blockbuster: O’s an ‘amateur’

    Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,

    “The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

    Obama: ‘Sometimes I Forget’ Magnitude of the Recession

    “It was a house of cards and it collapsed in the most destructive, worst crisis that we’ve seen since the Great Depression,” Obama said. “And sometimes people forget the magnitude of it. You know, you saw some of that in the video that was shown. Sometimes I forget.”

    Mitt Romney’s press secretary, Andrea Saul, responds: “It’s not surprising that a president who forgot to create jobs, forgot to cut the debt, and forgot to change Washington has now admitted that he’s forgotten about the recession. In fact, it seems that the President has forgotten that he’s been in office for the last three-and-a-half years. In November, the American people won’t forget.”

    As POTUS in Election year, I guess it is better to jump on board and support your VP rather than to not condone thier words.

    Yet I do not belive that “revealing” is the right word. I do not belive that BO had any intention of supporting Gay Marriage. Has he signed anything yet?

    Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall as POTUS scolded VP B.

    No we talked about the low interest rates and how it doesnt mean a damn thing because people cnat qualify because the jacked the requirements up, or they can buy because they are under water, and they cant re-fi because they cant get the house to appraise (see under water).

    So we just told one joke after another because that is what it is, A JOKE!
