  1. “…The emails have not been made public, and The New York Times was not permitted to review them. But four senior government officials offered descriptions of some of the key messages, on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to jeopardize their access to secret information..”

    A quote from the NYT. We are supposed to believe HILARY when she says she did not delete any important emails. Now, we are supposed to believe 4 Senior Government Officials because they saw emails and there is nothing to see there.

    This is the state of “journalism” today. Pathetic!

  2. Whoop!Whoop! The US Supreme Court agreed that Wisconsin’s voter ID bill is constitutional and we can go ahead checking ids. They dis this by not taking on the appeal from the 7th Circuit Court if Appeals.

    I work the polls on April 7th so I will have first hand, eyes on the “hardship” this will present. I am guessing not any issues.

  3. Here we go: Ted Cruz is not eligible to run for President so says lots of nutty people on the left.

    “So the one remaining question is whether Ted Cruz was a citizen at birth. That’s an easy one. The Nationality Act of 1940 outlines which children become “nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.” In addition to those who are born in the United States or born outside the country to parents who were both citizens … citizenship goes to babies born to one American parent who has spent a certain number of years here.

    That single-parent requirement has been amended several times, but under the law in effect between 1952 and 1986 — Cruz was born in 1970 — someone must have a citizen parent who resided in the United States for at least 10 years, including five after the age of 14, in order to be considered a natural-born citizen. Cruz’s mother, Eleanor Darragh, was born in Delaware, lived most of her life in the United States, and gave birth to little Rafael Edward Cruz in her 30s.”

    Politifact says it looks like Cruz is good to go!

  4. The MSM is one big sad face with the Ted Cruz announcement. Meanwhile they’re actively rooting for fauxchontas and Socialist Bernie Sanders to run. But, yeah, there’s no liberal bias. LOL.

  5. erich500 Says:

    If you think there’s no liberal view that dominates the press then how do you explain the Cruz coverage?

    This is absurd.

    He’s far too conservative for me; plus he simply doesn’t have the experience.

    The media usually likes a new story, a fresh face; but not with this guy. He has an interesting background and pedigree. The man’s father fought with Castro? Then turned against him? That’s fascinating. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says Cruz was one of the smartest students he had? That’s interesting.

    There’s something interesting, at least, in the human interest/personality type coverage. But not with this press and this man.

  6. The Cruz coverage? You mean like the coverage that Governor Moonbean says Cruz is unfit to be President?

    Cruz did wayyyyyyy more than edit the Harvard Law Review (current prez never even wrote an article for same). He was a clerk to the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Obama do anything close to that? Cruz argued 9 X before the Supreme Court. Obama do anything close to that? I could jo on and on but to say he doesn’t have the experience is just ridiculous!

    Read his wiki bio and if 75% is true he’s wayyyyyyy smarter than Obama could ever hope to be.

  7. So…the WH says that when the Ayatollah says “Death to America” it is for a domestic audience. But….when Netanyahu says ANYTHING it is for an international audience.

    You just can’t make this BS up! I guess the low information voters on the left will fall for this.

  8. So NPR called Cruz a “white Hispanic”. Marginalization anyone?

  9. I pretty much agree, erich. Though he’s not too conservative for me, I understand he has no hope (at this point) of becoming POTUS. But the backstory is fascinating. Not to a liberal press, however.

  10. I know the plane crash is bad. I know a lot of people died. But, it doesn’t deserve non-stop coverage. If there isn’t any new information, get back to regular news and cut in when/if news breaks.

    ESPN for me this morning.

  11. As a follower of news networks I have to say I really hate plane crashes. What it means for me is endless hours, and in many cases days, of wall to wall uniformed speculation (read guessing) as to what happened and why on every news network.

    These are stories, where all the known latest information, with rare exceptions, can be summarized in short hourly or bi-hourly updates. The only thing that seem to be important enough for networks override this tsunami of speculation with other news coverage are commercials.

  12. Hey LS we agree on something!😉

  13. I’ve watched this vine video a number of times now and still can’t believe what I’m seeing. It’s the most amazing thing I ever seen done with a basketball.

  14. ^^Sorry Spud. I forgot to remove the https://.

  15. Ha. It appears we do! You spelled it out much better than I did and I agree 100% with your post.

  16. Farris: OMG! And to think lefties complain when conservatives say the media buys whatever the WH says, hook, line and sinker!

    And now, Hilary gets a standing ovation from news reporters after she makes some kind of statement but won’t take questions from them! Looks like the MSM has received their marching orders from the Clinton camp! (It should not surprise anyone that no other media is reporting this!)

    What a dumb sh!t and typical of the people that flock to Austin.

  18. “What a dumb sh!t and typical of the people that flock to Austin.”

    ^^Come on LS you know if the shirt said “F*ck Obama” you’d be on here yelling about his first amendment rights being violated.🙂

  19. I have kids. I don’t want them seeing that nonsense. But even if I didn’t, those people annoy the crap out of me. Hey look at me, I have a bad word on my shirt.

  20. Obama sucks, Obama’s an idiot, the media’s too liberal except Fox, Cruz is god….. this place is boring.

  21. savefarris Says:

    Sorry Andy, but when the Administration tries to take a victory lap the same week that this info comes out, it’s hard not to point it out.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/employees-working-fewer-hours-due-to-obamacare-survey/article/2562012

    Not that our friends in the media won’t try!🙂

  22. Wow, thanks for that, Andy. You know, if your friends hadn’t been such angry trolls, they’d still be here. So, blame them. Not the rest of us.

    I miss some of the views that are no longer here. Though I don’t miss being called an “idiot” or a “racist” on a daily basis. Surely there are others out there like fritz & ice who dislike FNC but aren’t unhinged ticking time bombs.

  23. Please, don’t post here if it is boring, Andy. Is someone holding a gun to your head?

  24. It is decision day! The military FINALLY got its’ balls back and charged Bergdahl with desertion.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2015/03/25/bowe-bergdahl-once-missing-u-s-soldier-charged-with-desertion/?hpid=z1

  25. Who can forget Susan Rice saying Bergdahl served with “honor & distinction”? Truly pathetic! But, you know that statement follows the “the video was at fault”. Good golly, can we empty the sewer at the WH soon enough? (@7:35 in the video)

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/03/25/susan-rice-flashback-bergdahl-served-with-honor-and-distinction/

  26. Who in the world at the WH thought it was a good idea to not only trade some terrorists for Bergdahl but to hold him up as some sort of American hero. Not to mention they held a press conference with the guy’s parents at the White House. Clueless.

  27. Now I await the inevitable excuses and spin from the media. Should be fun.

  28. savefarris Says:

    ^ Bergdahl? Never heard of him. Is he a secret Koch operative?

  29. “Now I await the inevitable excuses and spin from the media. Should be fun.”

    ^^Personally I have no axe to grind in this story. If he’s guilty I hope he’s convicted and serves a long sentence. Right wingers, if comments here are any indicator, seem to want to skip the trial and get right to the sentencing; but that not news.

  30. imnotblue Says:

    It’s interesting what situations those on the left give a “wait and see all the evidence”… and what situations they decide what’s evidence before (and sometimes even after) it’s collected.

  31. “It’s interesting what situations those on the left give a “wait and see all the evidence”… and what situations they decide what’s evidence before (and sometimes even after) it’s collected.”

    ^^It’s no more interesting than what situations those on the right give a “wait and see all the evidence”… and what situations they decide what’s evidence before (and sometimes even after) it’s collected.

    You’re not even trying blue.

  32. Well, in this situation, there has been plenty said from members of Bergdahl’s platoon. People like Marie Harf & Donna Brazille (and others) called them liars. But, yeah, I believe what they say. They don’t appear to have a hidden agenda and don’t appear to be conspiracy nuts…like many in Ferguson. And no, I didn’t believe what Michael Brown’s idiot friend had to say. Because, it didn’t pass the smell test. And, because he had every reason to lie.

  33. Well you may be right LS; this may be just like the Michael Brown case. But unlike you, I kinda believe in this thing called the presumption of innocence – so I’ll wait for the trial and verdict before demanding he be punished.

  34. ^ LOL. That is rich. Granted, I don’t recall your reactions to the insane theories coming out of Ferguson. And, I don’t recall whether you gave Officer Wilson the benefit of the doubt. But, this seems like an actual open & shut case. Unless you don’t believe Bergdahl’s platoon mates and you don’t believe the Army investigators.

  35. Let’s hope you are always so generous with “innocent until proven guilty”, fritz. But, for me, not holding my breath.

  36. “And, I don’t recall whether you gave Officer Wilson the benefit of the doubt.”

    ^^I believe my POV at the time (as it usually is in these situations)was that the facts were in dispute.

    “But, this seems like an actual open & shut case.”

    ^^Maybe your right. Maybe your not. I lack your legal expertise in these matters. But I watched ‘The Jinx’ and saw Robert Durst get found not guilty of murdering his neighbour, dismembering the body and throwing it in the ocean – in TEXAS – even after he admitted doing it; so I think “an actual open & shut case” is a subjective thing.

  37. LOL. I have ZERO legal expertise. I don’t even watch Law & Order. But, my common sense is usually spot on!

  38. Anybody watching CNN? I’ve flipped over a few times during Cooper & now, Lemon. And all I’ve seen is plane coverage. Are they covering Bergdahl…or anything else for that matter?
