Dr. Ben Carson – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Ben Carson, the former pediatric neurosurgeon who’s building a following among conservatives, says the “likelihood is strong” that he’ll mount a presidential bid in 2016 – that is, if elections actually take place.

On Fox News Radio last week, Carson suggested elections may not take place two years from now because “there may be so much anarchy going on.”

He then went on to repeat his 2016 Campaign slogan, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!”, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!”.

Parts of Yellowstone National Park CLOSED (See Photo)

Via: Raw Story

Tourists at Yellowstone National Park are being BARRED from areas of the park because the massive underground supervolcano beneath it is melting the asphalt roads.

“It basically turned the asphalt into soup. It turned the gravel road into oatmeal,” Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said. In particular, Hottle said that the road between the park’s most popular attraction, Old Faithful, and Madison Junction has been dangerously compromised.

Park officials also asked tourists not to hike into the affected areas, as the danger of stepping through what appears to be solid soil into boiling-hot water was “high.”

Fox News Lies: ISIS Leader Released By George W. Bush!

Via: AATTP

1

The latest lie-riddled reporting on Fox concerns the circumstances of the capture and release of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Fox and other conservative media outlets are endeavoring to place the responsibility for Baghdadi’s brutal march through Iraq on President Obama, but as it turns out, that is utterly false.

In yet another example of journalistic malpractice, the folks at Fox News broadcast a number of reports that got the most significant facts completely wrong. In order to do so, they relied on the assertions of a single, uncorroborated account, and failed to do the most basic follow-up with the people in a position to know. Representative commentaries include these by Fox hosts Jeanine Pirro and Megyn Kelly:

~~~

Fox News LIES:

Pirro: The head of this band of savages is a man by the name of Abu al-Baghdadi. The new Osama Bin Laden. A man released by Obama in 2009, who started ISIS a year later.

Kelly: We are also learning more about the leader of the terror group, a man described as the new Bin Laden, the heir to Bin Laden. It turns out he had been in U.S. custody until 2009, over in Iraq, when he was then turned over to the Iraqi government as part of our troop drawdown. And then he was released.

~~~

The TRUTH:

“Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’ was held as a ‘civilian internee’ by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “He was held at Camp Bucca. A Combined Review and Release Board recommended ‘unconditional release’ of this detainee and he was released from U.S. custody shortly thereafter. We have no record of him being held at any other time.”

The Newest Fox News Contributor Once Called Hillary Clinton a CUNT

Via: News Corpse

1

 

If it isn’t already bad enough that Fox News is the home of repulsive characters like Sean Hannity, Eric Bolling, Sarah Palin, Keith Ablow, Ralph Peters, Liz Trotta, etc., they have just revealed a new associate who joins their Confederacy of Crackpot Contributors. And they must have really scraped the barrel bottom to get him unstuck.

Roger Stone is a veteran Republican operative who cut his teeth in the nastiest campaigns of Richard Nixon. In 2008 he founded a group to oppose Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign that he called “Citizens United Not Timid,” or C.U.N.T. He said that the group’s mission was “to educate the American public about what Hillary Clinton really is.”

Stone also spoke up for his pals in the Tea Party by saying that they were “the storm troops of the Republican Party. Don’t offend them.” And, yes, that reference to the brutal Nazi special forces was meant as a compliment.

Stone’s relationship with other Fox News personalities is rock solid. Fox’s resident “Psycho Analyst” Keith Ablow referred to Stone as his “chief adviser” following his aborted run for the Massachusetts senate. And Fox host Tucker Carlson previously turned to Stone as an election analyst.

It’s pretty obvious that Stone was drafted at this time to assist the Fox team in their defamation of Hillary Clinton. It is a specialty of Stone’s and he will compliment Karl Rove, whose recent cloddish swipes at Clinton as old and brain damaged have defined the tone that Fox intends to use going forward.

Apparently Fox felt they needed reinforcements prior to the commencement of the election season. So they turned to a real spit-baller to bring the debate down to the lowest, most nauseating level. Then again, Stone is just the right guy for the hate-filled dirtbags who watch Fox. One thing you can say for Fox: They know their audience.

Brian ‘the DUMB ONE’ Kilmeade trashes Father of returning POW

Via: Raw Story

1

Co-host Brian Kilmeade accused Bowe Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl, of making “some anti-American tweets and statements” because he had said he was working to free the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, and that “God will repay the death of every Afghan child.”

“Really?” Kilmeade asked. “I mean, he says he was growing his beard because his son was in captivity. Well, your son’s out now. So if you really don’t — no longer look like a member of the Taliban, you don’t have to look like a member of the Taliban. Are you out of razors?”

Some are now suggesting that the White House team really blew it by having the Bergdahl’s right there, given the fact the intel community had a classified file on him,” Doocy later added. “They knew he walked away, they knew he was a deserter. And there’s the president embracing the family.”

In fact, The Washington Post reported that Robert Bergdahl, who was a deeply conservative Orthodox Presbyterian, devoted the five years that his son was a prisoner to trying to understand his son’s captors, including learning the Pashto language.

Fox News Suffers Worst Ratings In Thirteen Years – And That’s Not Their Big Problem

Via: News Corpse

1

Fox News has fallen and it can’t get up.

Ratings for the month of May 2014, have just been published, and the numbers are devastating for Fox News. While still occupying the top slot among the cable news networks, Fox saw about a quarter of its audience dissolve across every demographic group and time period.

Every Fox program in primetime dropped by double-digits:

– Bill O’Reilly taking the deepest dive.

– Sean Hannity posted some of his lowest numbers ever in his new 10:00 pm time slot.

– Megyn Kelly’s new, and highly anticipated, primetime show failed to improve on the ratings performance of her predecessor.

~~~~

An analysis of the audience composition for the three cable news networks shows that, of Fox’s total audience, a pitiful 20% are in the 25-54 age group favored by advertisers. It’s even worse for their primetime schedule where only 15% fall into that group. That compares to CNN with 30%/35% respectively, and MSNBC with 31%/28%. In other words, CNN and MSNBC draw 50% more total viewers in the younger demos, and they double Fox’s ratio in primetime.

This makes it all the more curious that Fox News is barreling forward with a strategy to viciously insult their biggest viewer bloc. Recently, Fox regular Karl Rove launched an attack on Hillary Clinton with vile inferences that she is “old and stale” or perhaps brain damaged. Expressing such open contempt and belittling of the capacity for older persons to be effective leaders is not a particularly sound way to ingratiate oneself with the senior citizens that make up the bulk of ones audience.

I’m sure Fox News is expecting a big rebound with the ‘benghazi-Benghazi-BENGHAZI’ hearings!

Simply, not happening!
