Poll: Fox most trusted name in news

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday. A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network. Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded. [A left wing polling group does asks who Americans trust most when it comes to their news source and they put Fox NEWS on top. Hey Obama and crew, stick that in your pipes and smoke it…ed]

Licking the hand that feeds us

Somewhere along the way we forgot that without brains connected to it, the heart does more harm than good. We forgot that human beings have a certain nature, and, without the natural rewards and punishments the world imposes upon that nature, people often degenerate into a state of selfishness, immorality and hopelessness. Hope and change, therefore, will come when we put brains back into the equation. It’s time to add back the brains. The biggest problem we face in America today isn’t terrorism, scarsity of resources or out of control immigration. It certainly isn’t the environment or so-called global warming. It isn’t even our president, the Congress or the Supreme Court. We the people, after all, elect them or they are appointed by those whom we elect. No, our government along with all the rest are merely symptoms of the real problem. [GREAT article, pass it on to all you know…ed]

ACORN ‘gotcha’ man arrested in attempt to tamper with Mary Landrieu’s office phones

Alleging a plot to tamper with phones in Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in the Hale Boggs Federal Building in downtown New Orleans, the FBI arrested four people Monday, including James O’Keefe, 25, a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group’s credibility. Also arrested were Joseph Basel, Stan Dai and Robert Flanagan, all 24. Flanagan is the son of William Flanagan, who is the acting U.S. attorney for the Western District of Louisiana. All four men were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony. [The lamestream media pretty much completely ignored O’Keefe exposing ACORN for the criminal organization it is so it outta be interesting how they try and make a big deal about his arrest considering their readers and viewers know next to nothing about the scandal he uncovered…ed]

An Interview With Andrew Breitbart About The O’Keefe Arrest

I interviewed Andrew Breitbart about the arrest of James O’Keefe: HH: Joined now by Andrew Breitbart of www.biggovernment.com and www.bigjournalism.com, who’s name will be in big, big print in many newspapers tomorrow as the man whose videos he published at Big Government is under arrest in Louisiana. Andrew, what is going on?

AB: Well, your guess is as good as mine. We’re reading the same Associated Press copy out there. The first I heard of it was an e-mail early this afternoon from the Times-Picayune asking for my comment on it. I have not heard from anyone. I’ve issued a statement that I could read to you that in essence says I had no prior knowledge of any of this stuff, and I know nothing, quite frankly about this, and I’m going to wait until I hear from someone with information here. There’s obviously an attempt to use this for political purposes right now, and I see that Media Matters is referring to this group of gentlemen who were arrested as “Breitbart’s Crew.” I’ve looked at all four of the names…
HH: That’s slanderous, by the way. [The left wingers are already slanderously trying to pin whatever O’Keefe was up to on conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart. Hugh Hewitt got out in front of this nonsense yesterday…ed]

Tri-Staters Not In Love With ‘New’ Obama

President Barack Obama plans to use his state of the union address to “reconnect” with the middle class. Some say it’s an open admission to many here in the tri-state area that he has failed to feel our pain and our needs. From his war on the banks — the lifeblood of the metropolitan area economy — to his health care reform which could cost taxpayers here over $1 billion, President Obama’s policies have sent a strong message to the tri-state area that Washington doesn’t care about the middle class. [Perhaps the aggrieved people in the tri state area could begin feeling much better by tossing out all of the loony liberals they’ve voted into office for decades and start over again…ed]

Poll says Obama’s standing declines in Pa.

As President Barack Obama prepares to deliver his State of the Union address tonight, Pennsylvanians have turned against him, according to a new poll. Mr. Obama’s job approval rating among state residents is at the lowest of his year-old presidency, and residents view him less favorably than ever, according to the Franklin & Marshall College poll co-sponsored by Times-Shamrock Newspapers and other media outlets. The poll also shows U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter far ahead of his challenger for the Democratic nomination, U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak. Both badly trail Republican former Rep. Pat Toomey. [Looks like all the bitter people clinging to their guns and religion in PA are getting fed up with the empty suit too…ed]

Progressives’ anger grows against White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

A remarkable thing is happening to Rahm Emanuel: he is losing his aura of invincibility. A year ago, Emanuel was the untouchable attack dog for a president on top of the world. Now, according to some liberal critics, he is “a cowardly, petty, small-minded thug.” Discontent among liberal progressives against President Obama’s chief of staff has been bubbling for some time. It’s now nearing a boiling point. And the narrative emerging from those who hate Emanuel is far different from the one that has been built up over the last few years about the political knife fighter from Chicago. “The beltway crowd thinks of him as rough and tumble,” said a well-placed leader in the netroots community. “Progressives see him as weak-kneed because they don’t think he’s fighting for them on anything really.” [The fringe left is getting really pissed off at the sawed off little Chicago thug Rahm Emanuel.

Counterterrorism Chief: Some on Terror Watchlist Allowed Into U.S. Because ‘We Want Them Here in the Country for Some Reason or Another’

Michael Leiter, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee in a hearing last week that the United States sometimes chooses to allow people into the country who are on the federal government’s Terrorist Watchlist. (SNIP) “We don’t know exactly how many came into the country who were on the watch list?” asked Levin. “No,” said Leiter. “I will tell you that when people come to the country, if they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another.” [Now just why in the hell would the GOVERNMENT WANT suspected terrorists on the ‘no fly list’ in our country? Let me see now, another terrorist strike hits a major city and the first thing the federal government will do is scramble to restrict even more of our Constitutional rights. Remember the “Patriot Act?”…ed]

Zogby Poll: 57 Percent of Independent Voters Give Napolitano a ‘D’ or ‘F’ for Keeping America Safe

A new Zogby Poll finds that nearly half (46 percent) of American voters surveyed – and 57 percent of Independents — give Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano a below average or failing grade for keeping America secure. Also, when it comes to air travel, more Americans said they felt safer under President Bush than under President Obama. In the survey conducted Jan. 19 – 21, Zogby International asked 2,377 voters: “What grade would you give for the job Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is doing in keeping America safe?”
Overall, 28 percent gave Napolitano an “F.” Roughly 18 percent gave her a “D,” 15 percent gave her a “C” and nearly 25 percent gave her a “B.”
Only 8 percent of voters awarded Napolitano an “A.” Among Independent voters, the former Arizona governor fared even worse: 57 percent gave her a “D” or “F.” [It gets worse when Zogby asks military families what they think of this useless dolt…ed]

Top Democrats at war – with each other

President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will be all smiles as the president arrives at the Capitol for his State of the Union speech Wednesday night, but the happy faces can’t hide relationships that are fraying and fraught. The anger is most palpable in the House, where Pelosi and her allies believe Obama’s reluctance to stake his political capital on health care reform in mid-2009 contributed to the near collapse of negotiations now. But sources say there are also signs of strain between Reid and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, and relations between Democrats in the House and Democrats in the Senate are hovering between thinly veiled disdain and outright hostility. [The Democrats own the White House and have for the last year. The Democrats own the U.S. Senate and have for the last three years. The Democrats own the U.S. House of Representatives and have for the last three years. In fact Democrats have been in charge of Congress for the vast majority of the last 70 years or so. This past year, with the Democrats OWNING the W.H. and Congress, the Republicans did not have the numbers to stop ANY legislation the Democrats wished to ram through. Blame for the mess in this country? Golly, that’s a tough one…ed]

Dina Titus to colleagues: Harry Reid is ‘done’

Clearly worried about the political landscape heading into the fall elections, Democratic Rep. Dina Titus tells colleagues Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is “done,” Politico is reporting today. “Reid is done; he’s going to lose” in November, Titus said during a closed door meeting last week with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and colleagues, according to Politico. The paper cites three people in the room who heard the comment. Titus denied that she had singled out Reid, Politico said. But she acknowledged that she said Democrats would be “f—-ed” if they failed to heed the lessons of Massachusetts, where Republican Scott Brown won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat last week, the paper reported. [We know Reid is toast but I’d say this Titus mutt had better be worried about her own reelection. Word on the street is she is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the House…ed]

Disaster poll: Nearly 70 percent say dump Dems’ health care bill

Just when it appeared that the numbers for the Democratic health care proposals passed by the House and Senate couldn’t get any worse — they have. A new poll by CNN and Opinion Research, taken from January 22 to January 24, shows that 69 percent of respondents say Congress should dump the current Democratic health care proposals and either write an entirely new health bill or stop working on the subject altogether. “What do you think Congress should do on health care?” CNN asked. “Pass a health care bill similar to the legislation that Congress has been working on for the past year, start work on an entirely new bill, or stop working on any bills that would change the country’s health care system?” Thirty percent said pass a bill similar to the current ones, while 48 percent said start work on a new bill and 21 percent said stop working on health care. Add it up, and 69 percent say Congress should either write a new bill or stop working on health care altogether. [Can the message possibly be ANY clearer?…ed]

Pelosi: Democrats will have a health care bill

Giving up on overhauling the nation’s health care system is not an option, the top House Democrat said Wednesday as lawmakers looked to President Barack Obama for guidance in his State of the Union address on how to revive the stalled legislation. Asked if Congress might abandon a health care initiative beset with political and policy problems, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., responded: “I don’t see that as a possibility. We will have something.” [The name Senator Scott Brown goes right over this nitwit’s head. Even if the Democrats manage to hold onto the House come November I don’t see how in the world the remaining House membership could vote to have this blithering idiot remain as Speaker and third in line to the presidency…ed]

Democrats Put Lower Priority on Health Bill

With no clear path forward on major health care legislation, Democratic leaders in Congress effectively slammed the brakes on President Obama’s top domestic priority on Tuesday, saying they no longer felt pressure to move quickly on a health bill after eight months of setting deadlines and missing them. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, deflected questions about health care. “We’re not on health care now,” Mr. Reid said. “We’ve talked a lot about it in the past.” He added, “There is no rush,” and noted that Congress still had most of this year to work on the health bills passed in 2009 by the Senate and the House. [Just a few months ago our country was going to implode if Congress didn’t pass this legislation. Now that the Democrats have had their asses handed to them in Massachusetts suddenly the government takeover of our healthcare system by the Democrats isn’t such a big deal. NEVER trust these bastards though, rest assured they WILL try and ram something through in the middle of the night…ed]

N.J. faces shortage of doctors caused by ‘morale problem’ among physicians

New Jersey will be short 2,800 family doctors and specialists by 2020 unless the state becomes a more appealing place to open a practice, according to a report a hospital trade group issued today. The shortage stems from a “morale problem’’ among many of the state’s 23,800 licensed physicians, said J. Richard Goldstein, a physician and president and CEO for the New Jersey Council on Teaching Hospitals, which produced the report. He said the doctors are frustrated by the crushing costs of running a business, paltry reimbursements for treating elderly and poor patients and the threat of malpractice lawsuits. “Physicians … do not recommend their children practice medicine. To the residents they train, they recommend they go someplace else. [ObamaCare hasn’t even kicked in and doctors are bailing out of the profession because of the most pressing issues not addressed in the legislation.

Clinton signals not a two-term Secretary of State

In an interview to air at 8pm tonight on PBS’s Tavis Smiley Reports, Hillary Clinton tells Smiley she does not envision serving as Secretary of State for a second term.

Oregon Democrats exult in victory

Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney and House Speaker Dave Hunt didn’t appear to be in any hurry to leave the victory party Tuesday night at the Wonderland Ballroom in North Portland. Their big gamble in pushing through a $727 million tax package to help balance the budget has paid off, and now they feel like they have a strong set of accomplishments to present to voters this year. Voters agreed with the Democratic argument that the tax increases would be targeted to those who could afford it – wealthier Oregonians and corporations – and let them bypass the painful exercise of having to cut that $727 million out of the 2009-11 budget. [Democrats celebrate the exodus of hardworking productive citizens and their corporate employers as they raise taxes so they can fund their near bankrupt state government retirement program while claiming it’s all about the children.

Arf, Arf! Barry and Bo work on the State of the Union while Axelrod Fiddles and Rahm Burns

ARF! Bo here, the conservative dog in the White House. I’m in the Oval Office with Barry and the boys while they decide on a strategy for the State of the Union speech. They can’t make up their minds. Big surprise, huh? It’s been quite a week here since the Massachusetts senate race, all of them whining and moaning like a litter of pitbulls finding out they’ve just been sold to Michael Vick. Barry, of course, has been hardest hit. A retiree in Pompano Beach, Florida, gets bit by a sand flea, and Barry is hardest hit. Still, the Scott Brown victory was a genuine blow to the faithful. Barry thrives on self-delusion, so the team here firehoses him with flattery non-stop. The One. The Lightbringer. Captain Smooth. Except for Rahm, the only guy who can tell Barry the truth.

Kerry: Climate change supporters must match tea party intensity

Climate change advocates must match the intensity of conservative “tea party” activists, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said Wednesday. “I want you to go out there and to start knocking on doors, and talking to people and telling people, ‘This has to happen,’ ” Kerry said in a speech at a climate and energy forum hosted by labor, farm and environmental groups. “If tea party folks can go out there and get angry because they think their taxes are too high, for God’s sakes a lot of citizens ought to get angry about the fact that they are being killed and our planet is being injured on a daily basis by the way that we provide our power and our fuel and the old practices,” Kerry added. [Hey moron, this “climate change” fraud you and your ilk have tried to perpetrate on the American public has been thoroughly debunked as a hoax and anyone paying attention knows it. The “tea party” folks have knowledge, a passion for their country and the truth going for them, something the global warming crowd can never have. Seriously, give it up already Lurch…ed]

Public’s Priorities for 2010: Economy, Jobs, Terrorism

As Barack Obama begins his second year in office, the public’s priorities for the president and Congress remain much as they were one year ago. Strengthening the nation’s economy and improving the job situation continue to top the list. And, in the wake of the failed Christmas Day terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound airliner, defending the country from future terrorist attacks also remains a top priority. (SNIP) Dealing with global warming ranks at the bottom of the public’s list of priorities; just 28% consider this a top priority, the lowest measure for any issue tested in the survey. Since 2007, when the item was first included on the priorities list, dealing with global warming has consistently ranked at or near the bottom.

Google Toolbar caught tracking users when ‘disabled’

Google has updated its browser toolbar after the application was caught tracking urls even when specifically “disabled” by the user. In a Monday blog post, Harvard professor and noted Google critic Ben Edelmen provided video evidence of the Google toolbar transmitting data back to the Mountain View Chocolate Factory after he chose to disable the application in the browser window he was currently using. The Google toolbar offers two disable options: one is meant to disable the toolbar “permanently,” and the other is meant to disable the app “only for this window.” [More sneaky ass shenanigans from this left wing information gathering corporation.

Quote of the day.

I think that we can do so much better in the prison system alone if we can go and take, inmates for instance, the 20,000 inmates that are illegal immigrants that are here and get them to Mexico. We pay them to build the prison down in Mexico. And then we have those undocumented immigrants down there in prison. It would half the costs to build the prison and run the prison. We could save a billion dollars right there that could go into higher education.
