FOX NEWS DEALS IN LIES AND DECEPTION? “YES! APPARENTLY THEY DO!”

PLEA DEAL IN FAKE CIA ANALYST CASE

In a rare tribute to facts and factual information in this age of “Lying Is Okay: FREE SPEECH” that we find ourselves in, apparently one Fox News commentator/analyst went a bit too far in claiming that he was a bona fide CIA representative and possessed unique experience to tell America – or at least Fox viewers – about all things clandesinty.Wayne Simmons, 62, a frequent fixture on Fox News blabbing on about all things Middle Eastern and the failure of the Obama Administration, pleaded guilty yesterday to defrauding the U.S. Government, lying on government forms, wire fraud and illegal possession of a firearm and claiming to have worked for the CIA.(How and why the U.S. Government awarded Simmons government contracts remains unclear.)
Simmons' problems with the law weren’t anything new, having been convicted of a felony prior to being hired by the U.S. Government who hired him for work in Afghanistan and owing the IRS who filed liens against him…

REPUBLICANS EXEMPT THEMSELVES FROM EVER BEING PROSECUTED FOR A CRIME

REPUBLICANS TRY PASSING BILL TO PREVENT THEM FROM EVER BEING ARRESTED FOR CORRUPTION

DAILY KOS
No, this is not The Onion and that is not a fake headline. Republican lawmakers, realizing that most of them engage in corruption and cheat to win, are making sure they never have to be held accountable…like ever. We all know that politicians are blood-sucking parasites who make corruption a professional sport. That has been known since the inception of democracy. But never before have they been so audacious as to try passing legislation that completely exempts them from any prosecution or arrest for said acts. That’s exactly what we need! Representative Kevin Calvey (R – Oklahoma City) recently  introduced House Bill 2206, which, I sh*t you not, seeks to prevent Oklahoma’s district attorneys from prosecuting state officials. Further,  reserving that power exclusively to the state’s Attorney General. Therefore, exempting lawmakers from prosecution of nearly any crimes that are normally handle…

BACKWOOD LOGIC This Redneck Just Utterly Destroyed The Target Boycott

FROM QUEERTY APRIL 29, 2016
“You know it’s getting out of hand cause we’ve got white people boycotting Target,” comedian Trae Crowder says as he begins to dig into the bizarre bathroom hysteria sweeping through the popular retailer.
And he has a point. “I hope you realize that Target ain’t even gonna think about giving a damn,” he tells so-called “protesters.” Watch more of his glorious monologue below:

GOORGE TAKEI DISCUSSES "BERNIE OR BUST" MANTRA AND ONCE AGAIN HE IS SPOT ON!

There is nothing for me to say here — nothing more to describe or explain. The message that activist George Takei sends out in this video to progressives, Democrats, and liberals around the country, is simple and clear. Here is the full transcript followed by the video:   I'm George Takei. As many of you probably know, I'm a Democrat.And as you may have seen, I've also been a fan of Bernie Sanders. Much of what he stood for and helped bring to the forefront in this primary are things I too have fought for. I stood with the protesters at Occupy Wall Street and have spoken out often for campaign finance reform. I crowd-funded to defeat entrenched corporate interests in Congress. So I like Bernie. A lot of folks like Bernie. Even God, Himself, sent Bernie a tweet. But having been through many bruising primaries in my life, I'm also a realist. Fr…

OBAMA’S FOREIGN POLICY: FOOL’S MISSION OR PERCEPTIVE VISION?

THE ATLANTIC EXPLAINS “THE OBAMA DOCTRINE”
In a wide ranging, almost book length piece in the April issue of The Atlantic magazine, Jeffery Goldberg offers a wide ranging and perceptive analysis of what has yet to become known as the "Obama Doctrine," but, I predict, will be shortly.Others call it the “Leading From Behind Doctrine” but this article leaves that moniker in the dustbin of irrational historical hysteria.Goldberg penned this piece from a dozen face to face interviews with the President, including long hours aboard Air Force One as he accompanied the President on his overseas journeys.
If you are at all interested in what the “Obama Doctrine” consists of, and it consists of quite a bit of revolutionary thinking about America’s role in the world, what constitutes our strategic overseas interests, where U.S. attention overseas should be directed and why the Middle East is no longer a top shelf priority for America, this is a must read.  Many of us have been aware of…

SUPREME COURT ABOUT TO DEMONSTRATE THAT IT DOESN’T “GET IT!”  AGAIN!


Judging by the news from the Supreme Court’s deliberations over the conviction of former Virginia Governor, Robert McDonnell, it looks like come June, when the ruling is issued, the Justices will come down on the side of “legalism” rather than on the side of reason one more time.McDonnell – and his wife – were convicted of corruption by accepting cash, gifts, a wedding gown and vacations from a Virginia businessman in exchange for favorable treatment for the supplement his company was promoting.As with Citizen’s United where the Court didn’t understand that corporations are not “people” in the same way that you and I are "people" or in their Hobby Lobby ruling that paved the way for the current crop of anti-LGBT legislation and Kentucky’s Kim Davis continued refusal to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples based on “closely held religious beliefs,” a ruling overturning the McDonnell’s convictions willa…

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?

PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING, ACCORDING TO 90 YEAR OLD HARRIS WOFFORD



I’m not sure why former Senator from Pennsylvania, Harris Wofford’s (age 90) and Matthew Charlton, age 40, love story has struck such a resonant chord around the country, but apparently it has.Married to a woman for 48 years (his wife died from leukemia in 1996) Wofford and Charlton will tie the knot this weekend.They’ve known each other for 15 years, met on a Fort Lauderdale beach, fell instantly in love with one another, have co-habited for six years here in Washington and will marry with Wofford’s daughter, Susanne – she’s older than Matthew – acting as “master of ceremonies” at her father’s wedding.And, no, you really can’t make this stuff up.
In a near-perfect script of how liberal values can trump any and every obstacle, 90 year old Harris and 40 year old Matthew’s marriage seems like the ultimate feel-good story for the ages.Tall and courtly, Wofford has been an idealist for social justice his entire life. In many…
