    MSNBC asks: ‘Who’s More Dangerous, the Supreme Leader in Tehran or Netanyahu?’

  • ninja

    You know it’s bad when yournnot surprised to here that.

  • Suikostinger

    Wait, doesn’t the right get mad when the left turn deaths into something political? This just happened a few weeks ago…now they are glad that Romney is turning the Deaths into something political…..

  • PaulG

    Will this news story end the MSNBC bump??Since they seem to be the least trusted hard news source during a significant international news story and will this story give CNN a nice bounce as the Arab Spring did??

  • Doug Z

    WASHINGTON – Intelligence experts and U.S. government officials are starting to view the attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi as a coordinated attack.

    Wait, doesn’t the right get mad when the left turn deaths into something political? This just happened a few weeks ago…now they are glad that Romney is turning the Deaths into something political…..

    Barack Hussein goes to Las Vegas to campaign. There is nothing political going on here is there.

    Barack Hussein Obama did not hand in intelligence meeting for one week. I know that is normal. He was too busy campaigning to get reelected

  • Ratboy

    @ *Reports are coming in that a huge rift came up between Obama and the Israel PM last night, its developing…stay tuned.

    Last night Greta reported during her show that they talked for an hour and the white house was saying that he never had asked to meet (she knew that was BS) but at the time it was not a “bad” conversation as it was told by the lying white house

  • Doug Z


    Suikostinger———–Open mic catches reporters coordinating questions for Romney…

    Nothing political about that is there?

  • Doug Z

    The Middle East is exploding, our Ambassador was just murdered and dragged through the street, and he’s CAMPAIGNING?

    What would he do if someone threatened a nuclear strike? Play golf?

  • Doug Z

    Oh, and don’t forget that he’s also finding the time to visit David Letterman’s show.

  • ninja

    Rain or shine. ___Z

  • Snap Tie

    Multi-Platinum award winning Journalists for Obama CBS caught on open mic coordinating questions for Romney: “No matter who he calls on we’re all covered…The MSM colluding to attack Romney? Say it isn’t so? http://www.therightscoop.com/exclusive-open-mic-captures-press-coordinating-questions-for-romney-no-matter-who-he-calls-on-were-covered/

  • Coffee Steve

    I have to admit, CNN has had some very good reporting on the Libya attack, they seem to have had some very good and correct reports from Libya, and they were first on many of them.

    Time will tell

    Obamacare Redefines ‘Full Time’ Employment as 30 Hours a Week

    A year and a half after the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the IRS and Health and Human Services issued an 18-page report outlining new regulations that will dramatically increase health care costs for small and large businesses alike.

    With this new regulation, the federal government is now removing the right of businesses to define “full time employee” as they deem appropriate for their unique conditions.

    The Washington Examiner noted that the new regulations will hit small businesses especially hard:

    The IRS rule is key because companies with more than 50 full-time employees must provide health insurance under Obamacare, or be fined. Business groups have been warning that small companies might try to replace full-time workers with part-time help to avoid being forced to offer health insurance in 2014, but the 30-hour full-time definition is likely to undermine those plans.

    Do they have the authority to do this ?

  • Snap Tie

    Unfortunate dd they do.. They left so much open in the bill we have to pass to see what’s in it.. Almost !8,000 pages of regulations have been written so far.

  • Snap Tie

    Obama is trying to figure out how to blame the Ambassador and others’ deaths on workplace violence. AKA Fort Hood shooting..

    Obama’s not-so-public schedule

    The White House has touted the easy availability of President Barack Obama’s public schedule as part of his administration’s “commitment to open government.”

    But there’s a lot the White House keeps off its regular rundown of the president’s day.

    Obama has pledged to run the most transparent administration in history, yet the published schedule offers only a narrow window into his activities, a POLITICO review found.

    There are tough-to-fathom omissions like leaving off a reception for AIDS activists and researchers that had already been announced on a White House blog. And seemingly deliberate ones, such as the absence of several meetings with House Speaker John Boehner at the height of debt ceiling negotiations. Others seem designed to downplay inconvenient or politically awkward events, such as meetings about the Sudan with actor George Clooney, a major contributor and fundraiser for the president.


    A review of more than 4,000 photos posted to Flickr by official White House photographers since Obama took office in 2009 found about one-third of the events depicted were never on his public schedule. And, of course, many other unannounced events never make it to the Flickr feed at all.

    US Office of Special Counsel: HHS Sec. Sebelius Comments VIOLATE Hatch Act

    “I’m sure Obama and Holder will be ready to prosecute Sebelius for breaking the law. Under the Hatch Act, violators are to be removed. Think that will happen?”

    “HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits certain political activity, when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity earlier this year, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said Wednesday.”

    “The office sent an official report and Sebelius’s response to the president on Wednesday.”

    “The special counsel’s office said it “found no evidence that Secretary Sebelius made any other political statements in her official capacity.”

    “During a speech to the Human Rights Campaign Gala in North Carolina in February, Sebelius said North Carolina Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton “needs to be the next governor of North Carolina.” She also outlined the Obama administration’s accomplishments so far and said: “One of the imperatives is to make sure that we not only come together here in Charlotte to present the nomination to the president, but we make sure that in November he continues to be president for another four years.”

    “The Office of Special Counsel said she made the political remarks in her capacity as a federal employee and thus violated the Hatch Act. If Sebelius had made those remarks in her personal capacity, they would have been acceptable.”

    After that appearance, Sebelius had the event reclassified from official to political, and done in her personal capacity, in an attempt to avoid a Hatch Act violation. She and HHS also reimbursed the Treasury Department for all the costs associated with the trip. At least some of the cost was picked by the Democratic National Committee, according to the OSC.

    But the OSC said the reclassification doesn’t mean the violation didn’t occur, particularly because the gala was advertised using Sebelius’s HHS title.

    “I don’t know how many employees you have, but, did you catch this ?”

    “Obamacare Redefines ‘Full Time’ Employment as 30 Hours a Week”

    We sold our business years ago when we had about 300 employees,,I would imagine most small businesses in the retail and service sectors will adjust to accomodate the new rule,,but that would mean many employees who could least afford it,,will find their hours cut back..It reminds me of back during the Hillarycare debate when First Lady Clinton said “I can’t be responsible for every undercapitalized small business in America.”

    “Do they have the authority to do this ?”

    In state like New York,,where a state inspector would drop in one of our locations to look for violations on a weekly time sheet and fine you $500 for one violation,,$1000 for a second violation and $2500 for a third violation,,enforcement would be no problem,,but in a right to work state like Florida enforcement would be more challeging..

    The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

    What would you expect from a do nothing president and one who say’s “I did not do it or authorize it.”
