    This conservative targeting comes from the top.

    The White House tried to get conservative columnist fired… Obama’s own cousin , at that.

    Milton Wolf is a physician practicing in Kansas City. During the health care debates of 2010, Dr. Wolf began speaking out against the ObamaCare proposal. Wolf is a regular columnist at the Wash. Times, & , one of my

    During the 5/14/2013 White House press conference, Dr. Wolf tweeted:

    “The same year the #IRS held up my tax refund for months w/o ever saying why, the WH urged the @WashTimes to drop me.

    They called my editor and feigned concern that the Washington Times was taking advantage of me… by publishing my op-eds critical of Barack Obama. Around the same time the IRS put a hold on our tax refund that required an arbitrator and several months to resolve. The local IRS office and the arbitrator seemed genuinely confused by the ordeal using terms like “very strange” and “unusual” but never could explain why it happened.

    [I]t wasn’t just a politician complaining about a particular column or supposedly incorrect facts. They weren’t requesting a correction or even an opportunity to respond. They wanted someone(me) canned.”

    Regarding Lois Lerner’s phony IRS statements :

    I read her name on IRS letter to conservative group, Against Government Excess, dated March 2012. Politico has posted her letter online. Lies keep on appearing.

    When it Rains.. It pours………..

    Another Terrible Day for the Obama administration…..

    @ coffee, did Kirk actually ever say…

    Beam me up Scotty???

  • Jeff

    Fox’s Megan Kelly:

    I think OJ Simpson will say anything to get out of jail …

    Sheer Brilliance!

  • Jeff

    Fox’s Shep Smith:

    Another scandal for the White House, there was a tornado in Texas and Obama ignored the Tornado warnings.

    Here’s Michelle Bachman for a comment: “god is clearly punishing Texas because Minnesota passed marriage equality”

    Shep had to quickly point out that Rep. Bachman was talking into the wrong camera……again.

  • Jeff

    Speaker Boner: “jobs is my number one focus” as he raises a red pamphlet. See??? It really is!!!

    LMFAO! What a joke!

  • AnnieK

    Careful, it’s very dangerous to interrupt feeding sharks.

  • Ratboy

    Well it is obvious that MFitz or Missfit or whatever does not have a clue either.
    I get a kick out of the loons that think that FOX is the ONLY source for the right. I can go down the list of intelligent people here that post and are not lefties and very very very very little of the sources are FOX that they use. There are dozens of different outlet that are used and posted. And they even post from the leftie sites.
    I also find it rather disgusting that the loons constantly preach that the right is filled with haters and destroyers etc. It just shows how really uninformed they really are.
    We wont even get into the selective editing and twisting that happens here for the lefties to make their points. Oh well jus another one to ignore.

  • SteveB


    they get all there News from MSNBC and media Matters.. they are told what t think and how to think it…….. and to repeat. Racist. Biggot Haters Homophobe, Taliban. war on women… destoryes…. its the same old same old………..

  • Chriscee

    Chris Matthews says Obama doesn’t like his job.

    That’s OK..we don’t like the job he is doing!

  • Ratboy

    Well Der Tingles keeps up the racist crap!

    Chris Matthews: 10-20 Percent Of America Don’t Support Obama Because They Believe ‘White Race Must Rule’

    Chris Matthews’ toxic anti-conservative vitriol has spread onto other MSNBC shows, infecting them with his slanderous language. It is no secret that Matthews opposes the Tea Party as extremists, often times accusing them of outright racism towards President Obama.

    Appearing on PoliticsNation with racist host Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews disgustingly claimed that a full 10-20 percent of this country

    [w]ant this president to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books that he really wasn’t president… They can’t stand the idea that he is president. And a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group. So what? It is the sense that the white race must rule.

  • Stan T

    They asked Obama if anyone in the white house knew…and Obama then says “Let me answer your question specifically”…then he doesn’t even answer the question generally….lol

  • Raz

    Saw a picture of Al Sharpton the other day, he is not looking very healthy. Needs a little meat on his bones, something flesh out his cheeks and stop making him look so ashy.

  • Raz

    Chris Matthews: 10-20 Percent Of America Don’t Support Obama Because They Believe ‘White Race Must Rule’

    And this is why NOBODY watches MSNBC

  • AppleStinx

    SteveB wrote: “David Beckham to Retire from Soccer at the End of the Season….”

    A wonderful career. Too bad a World Cup trophy was never meant to be raised by him.

  • Chriscee

    Things are not looking so bright in Obama’s FAILED economy:

    Weekly jobless claims hit highest level in 6 weeks

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON – The number of Americans seeking unemployment aid rose 32,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 360,000, the most since late March. The jump comes after applications fell to a five-year low.

    The Labor Department said Thursday that the less volatile four-week average rose just 1,250 to 339,250, a level consistent with modest hiring.

    Weekly applications are a proxy for layoffs. The big increase could mean companies are cutting more jobs, possibly because of steep government spending cuts that kicked in March 1. Labor officials said there were no special circumstances that caused the spike.

    Applications tend to fluctuate sharply from week to week and economists typically focus more on the four-week average. That remains 9 percent lower than it was six months ago.

  • Stan T


    You consider the New York Times a newspapaer? It’s a liberal hack rag at best…The people working for the New York Times are crazier than the hosts on MSNBC…lol

  • usa8888

    ARe all you right wingers ready to do the Benghazi Boondoggle??? A one-a, a two-a, a three-a……

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–what would voters say to your “gov has no place trying to make the economy better and growing jobs?” They’ve already voted you out. The right wing GOP is going extinct~~~~~~~~~~

  • usa8888

    This just in: Right winger Issa keeping Pickering and Mullen from testifying so public can hear their responses…….Issa is doing the cover up and Benghazi Boondoggle at the same time….
