As Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel explains about amps and Brian Williams embellishments, this one goes to eleven!!!
When will Brian Williams return to NBC News, if ever? Back in February, NBC News suspended Brian Williams for 6 months without pay for his his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. It only took NBC News more than a decade to get to the bottom of this situation and Williams may never have been suspended at all if he had just shut his trap and stopped telling the false story. However, the NBC internal investigation of their news anchor has turned up at least 11 instances in which Williams publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits. 11!!! Good grief, the New York Times is reporting that NBC is looking into whether Williams fibbed about his reporting during Egypt’s Arab Spring.
Brian Williams’ suspension ends in August; however, I will find it impossible to believe that they could ever bring him back. All a news anchor has is their credibility to report the news and with 11 embellishments to his credit, Williams news cred is shot.
A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.
NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.
The Iraq claim was one of the 11 suspect statements that a team of NBC News journalists has identified during the inquiry, said the individual, who asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to talk about an internal matter.
The investigators, led by NBC News senior executive producer Richard Esposito, have also raised doubts about Williams’ comments about his experiences covering Israel’s military action against Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006. In an interview with a student-run television station at Fairfield University in Connecticut in 2007, Williams said he saw rockets passing “just beneath” the Israel helicopter in which he was traveling. But Williams gave a less harrowing account of the same trip in an NBC News blog a year earlier
NY Times Journalist Caught the Clinton Foundation Red-Handed in a Lie About a Meeting Between former President Bill Clinton and Kazatomprom, a Kazakhstan State-Owned Nuclear Holding Company
LIARS: If you actually care about America, you will watch the video below that shows of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Lied and sold out our country to the Russians …
How big was the New York Times story on Bill and Hillary Clinton and the uranium deal, bigger than you think. If Hillary Clinton and the Clinton’s are allowed to get away with this then this country is lost forever. At some point Americans have to actually care that those in power and have the ultimate power like president of the United States actually have an ounce of decency, credibility and ethics. The individual who holds the highest office in the land can’t be a complete and total liar and hide behind a gender card saying what difference does it make. When is enough, enough?
When Hillary Clinton announced that she was going to run for president in 2016, she stated, “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.” Clinton went on to further say, “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.” AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP … HILLARY CLINTON IS THAT PERSON AT THE TOP THAT THE DECK IS STACKED IN FAVOR OF!!! Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have sold America out so that they could become rich, breaking every law that the so-called people she wants to champion would have been arrested and thrown in jail. America, we are no longer talking about Bill lied about sex with an intern … THESE LIES ARE MUCH, MUCH INSIDIOUS.
Fox News: Millions To Clinton Foundation In Exchange For Russian Uranium Deal
But, as New York Times reporter Jo Becker reported, such a deal would require review by the U.S. government. That’s where Frank Giustra, a Canadian business executive and founder of the company that would become Uranium One, entered the picture.
Giustra reportedly set up a meeting between Kazatomprom officials and Bill Clinton himself — at the former president’s home in Chappaqua, New York.
Giustra has close ties to Bill Clinton and is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. The two even flew to Kazakhstan together when Giustra’s company landed a lucrative deal to secure uranium mines there.
Here’s where the lie comes in.
Becker told Fox News’ Bret Baier that when she first asked a Clinton Foundation spokesman and Giustra about the meeting, they both said no such meeting ever took place. However, when she informed them that the then-head of Kazatomprom not only told her that the meeting had taken place, but also showed her a picture of himself with Clinton at the Chappaqua home proudly displayed in his office, they were forced to admit the meeting occurred.
In 2007, Toshiba “sold a 10 percent stake in U.S. nuclear power plant builder Westinghouse,” Reuters reported.
During Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the U.S. State Department, foreign governments and businesses donated tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and paid millions in speaker fees to former President Clinton. Some of those same players then had business or policy issues later land on then-Secretary of State Clinton’s desk.
In addition to concerns about ethics of such practices, Clinton failed to disclose millions of dollars in big foreign donations to her husband’s foundation, which she had previously vowed to do. It was also reported that the Clinton Foundation is redoing five years worth of tax returns after a review by Reuters found several errors.
That’s the gist of the bombshell reports, based on Peter Schweizer’s new book, “Clinton Cash,” that emerged on Thursday.
Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs
WHAT DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE AGAINST PEOPLE IN WHEEL CHAIRS?
First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?
Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.
Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.
In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.
“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”
The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.

Former Boston Red Sox Pitcher & Current Great Dad Curt Schilling Discusses Cyber Bullying with Sean Hannity Involving Daughter Gabby Schilling
CURT SCHILLING STRIKES OUT CYBER-BULLIES!!!
The below is a must watch VIDEO. When Curt Schilling played in the MLB for the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox to name a few during his 20 year career he was a phenomenal pitcher and in 2004 helped lead the Red Sox, along with his bloody sock, to their first World Series title since 1918. All that aside, as great of a big game pitcher that Schilling was, he has proved to be an even greater dad.
KUDOS to Curt Schilling for not only saying, NO, but HELL NO, in defending his daughter by going after those who would attach him through his 17 year old daughter. Trolls, you think you can hide behind a cell phone keyboard, think again.
Former Boston Red Sox Pitching Great Curt Says “HELL NO” to Critics Telling Him to Ignore Men Bullying His Daughter … “I Can and Will Find You” (Update: Ticket Taker Sean MacDonald Fired by the Yankees)
A LONG TIME AGO WE COINED THE PHRASE, “KEY BOARD COWARDS”.
ALL-STAR DAD ... Curt Schilling, Boston Red Sox, “bloody sock” baseball pitching great, is doubling down on going Dad protective of his daughter in the face of recent cyber bullying attacks. Take a look at Schilling’s blog, 38 Pitches and check out the vile attacks on his daughter and a father’s response. Folks, cyber bullying is no laughing matter. There are some true psychos out there and piling on in a form of cyber wilding hardly makes you cool. All of this occurred after Schilling tweeted a congratulatory message about his 17 year old daughter being accepted to Salve Regina University. Then the disgusting, crude and vile tweets came from the underbelly and low-lifes of the internet.
I am all for free speech, sorry, this type of speech should be a crime. The intent is to cause harm. Such cowards need to be prosecuted or better yet, be put in a room for 20 minutes with Curt Schilling and let him dish out some dad justice.
Curt Schilling goes Liam Neeson on Trolls
Ladies? If any of these guys is your boyfriend you’re in for a real rude awakening.
Lastly? Not one of these gutless clowns would even think of saying a word of ANY of this in person.
P.S. Gabby I know you’re likely embarrassed and for that I apologize. But as we have talked about, there is no situation ever in your life, where it’s ok for any ‘man’ to talk about you, or any other woman this way (and truth be told no real man would ever talk this way anyway). It truly is time this stopped. I don’t know where it started because it sure as hell didn’t happen much when we were growing up. Like any dad reading this the only thing I need you to leave this home with when you head to college is the knowledge that I love you more than life itself and there is NOTHING I would not do to protect you. And while it may sound corny, it’s nothing I’d ever be shy about saying in public, ever.
Some have told Curt to ignore the tweets and the vile and disgusting comments regarding his daughter. There is a long standing rule on the internet, actually its more of a guideline, don’t feed the trolls. However, that rule only goes so far and at some point you have to do what Curt Shilling did and say, HELL NO” … “I CAN AND WILL FIND YOU!!!”
I look at it like this. If someone walked into your house and punched your daughter square in the face, what would your reaction be? You and I probably are thinking the very same thing. How is that different than what happened to my amazing Daughter?
Those bruises on your daughters face? They’ll heal over time and go away. My daughter? She was bruised and battered every bit as bad as that punch. Her scars are there forever.
For you “men” trying to somehow side with these guys? Go for it. You don’t have far to go in life, in fact you may already be at your finish line.
Ladies? I don’t care if you’re 7 or 70. There is no time, no place, no reason in your lives ever that anyone, most especially a man, is allowed to talk to you, or treat you, this way.
I grew up in a world where women were treated with respect and dignity. When did that become out of date? Obsolete? How? Why?
The other man — the VP of Theta Xi at Montclair State — has since been identified as Sean MacDonald. MacDonald was hired by the Yankees as a part-time ticket taker at the end of January, the team confirmed, and he has since been fired.
ESPN Sports Anchor Stuart Scott Has Died Age 49 after Battle with Cancer … However, He Will Always Be “As Cool as the Other Side of the Pillow”
It is a sad day in sports today, ESPN’s Stuart Scott has passed away at the age of 49 …
The longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott died Sunday morning after an extended battle with cancer, he was just 49 years old. Scott joined the ESPN in 1993 as the network was ramping up to launch ESPN2. That was just the launching bad for Scott as he steadily grew into one of ESPN’s most well-known, well liked and respected personalities … “Boo-Yah.” I remember the founding of ESPN in 1978, let along the launch of ESPN2 and let me just say Stuart Scott brought an energy and a fun and off the wall perspective to the broadcast that you truly looked forward to watching it. It is not very often that sports highlights were must-see TV, but that is the talent that this man had. Stuart Scott did the best thing that any sports anchor could do, he provided us with an escape from the real world and made sports fun. He talked about the games, plays and highlights like we would with our friends. God bless you Stuart Scott, our prayers go out to your family and friends … thank you … rest in peace.
REST IN PEACE STUART SCOTT
Stuart Scoot was first diagnoses with a rare form of cancer in November 2007. He took the vile disease publicly as he allowed us to share in his battle. So many of us either have been in Scott’s shoes or know some one personally who is. Stuart Scott helped us all deal with cancer in our own lives as he battled his. Scott was a beacon of light and remained so positive in his fight against cancer. One of the greatest lessons Stuart showed us all was to not let cancer paralyze you. He lived his life to the end on his terms and that meant being an ESPN sports anchor and commentator to the best of his ability. Please watch the VIDEO below of Scott’s moving speech, it is one of the best ever. For 7 years Scott battled cancer and kept the attitude that “fighting was winning, not quitting, not saying I have cancer, I can t do anything. ” Scott maintained the only way you lose against cancer is to not fight it and to just lay down and have a pity party for yourself.
His personality was infectious … Rest is peace Stuart Scott, you will forever be “as cool as the other side of the pillow.”
To all who have cancer, have known those who have cancer or currently know some one who is battling cancer, we need to remember the words that Stuart Scott said during his speech after receiving the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPYS on July 16, 2014. Please make sure to watch his acceptance speech below.
“When you die, it does not mean you lose to cancer. You beat cancer in how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live. So live, live, fight like hell. And when you get too tired to fight then lay down and rest and have some body else fight for you. That’s also very important. I can’t do this “don’t give up thing” by myself. I got thousands of people on Twitter and on the streets who encourage me.”
Stuart Scott, a longtime anchor at ESPN, died Sunday morning at the age of 49.
Among the features of the new ESPN studio in Bristol is a wall of catchphrases made famous by on-air talent over the years. An amazing nine of them belong to one man — from his signature “Boo-Yah!” to “As cool as the other side of the pillow” to “He must be the bus driver cuz he was takin’ him to school.”
That man is Stuart Scott, and his contributions to the sports lexicon are writ large. But they are only one aspect of his legacy. When he passed away, he left behind so much more. He inspired his colleagues with his sheer talent, his work ethic and his devotion to his daughters, Taelor, 19, and Sydni, 15. He defied convention and criticism to help bring this network into a new century. He spoke to the very athletes he was talking about with a flair and a style that ESPN president John Skipper says, “changed everything.”
“He didn’t just push the envelope,” says sports radio host and former ESPN anchor Dan Patrick. “He bulldozed it.”
Stuart Scott was honored for his fight against cancer at the 2014 ESPY Awards, where he became the latest recipient of the Jimmy V ESPY Award for Perseverance. The award named for college basketball coach Jim Valvano, whose life was also taken by cancer in 1993, and who gave probably one of the greatest speeches in sports history that speaks to one’s everyday life, “Don’t Give Up, Don’t Ever Give Up”.
Stuart Scott’s Moving ESPYS Speech,
UPDATE I: Remembering Stuart Scott:
Steve Levy, who came to ESPN shortly before Stuart in August 1993 and served as his co-host for the first “SportsCenter” from the new studio last June, put it this way: “I think the audience recognized that when Stuart was on, there was going to be something special. And to his credit, he brought something special every night he was on.”
Tributes to Scott on Twitter, #BooYah
Remembering Stuart Scott’s first set at ESPN … muted colors in 1D!!!

Jonathon Gruber Backtracks on His “Americans are Stupid” Comments … But He Has Said it On More Than One Occasion
MSNBC still carrying the water for Barack Obama and Obamacare …
Suddenly MIT professor Jonathan Gruber and the architect of Obamacare is in full spin and CYA mode as he backtracks from his comments that were just made public to all. Gruber stated that Obamacare was a lie, a fraud and the American people were purposely deceived in order to pass the law. Gruber also called the American people stupid. Hmm, isn’t this what Conservatives had said for years? Now Gruber is saying his comments were inappropriate. There is just one problem,Gruber made last these American voter are “stupid” remarks on more than one occasion. Watch the video from The Kelly Files via The Blaze, link HERE, to video of more remarks made by Gruber and Megyn Kelly’s less than willingness to believe him. It begins at the 2:00 mark of the video that Gruber has made this sane remark on more than one occasion. Off the cuff, eh?
Sorry, but he hardly to be seems to be speaking off the cuff. Jonathan Gruber is a very well-spoken and intelligent man. He is also a liberal who has a low opinion of the masses and would do anything to deceive then in order to get Obamacare passed. Gruber regrets making the America voters are stupid comments. Now, he regrets having it be made public. What, is Jonathan Gruber blaming his remarks on a spontaneous thought in his head, when he says he was speaking off the cuff? C’MON MAN!!!
Interestingly enough, he would not appear on FOX News to get a grilling and not just a softball interview on MSLSD.
This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -– you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. And it’s the second-best argument. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.
The Triple Crown of Lying … Fact Check.org/Politifact/WAPO Fact Checker Gives Barack Obama & Minions More Pinnochio’s for His Lame ISIS, JV Team’ Explanation
BARACK OBAMA, YOU LIED … AGAIN!!!
Fact Check.org gives Barack Obama more “Pinocchio’s” for his lame effort in trying to say that he was not referring to ISIS when he was making the past comparison that ISIS was like a “jayvee” terror team. WHAT OBAMA LIE? Say it isn’t so. Obama and his minions have won the “triple crown” of lying as Fack Check.org, Politifact and the WAPO Fact Checker all say … YOU LIE. I guess it all depended on that is, is … oh sorry, ISIS is. Barack Obama is simply incapable of telling the truth.
Todd: Long way, long way from when you described them as a JV team.
Obama: Well, I –
Todd: Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment?
Obama: Keep — keep — keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL. I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally. Weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11. And the point that I was –
Todd: You don’t believe these people –
Obama: Not yet. But they — they can evolve. And I was very specific at that time. What I said was, not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive. Our goal should not be to think that we can occupy every country where there’s a terrorist organization.
Barack Obama – The Lying King
During Obama’s Meet the Press interview Sunday with new host Chuck Todd, the president essentially gave the same explanation Earnest previously gave about the JV remark published in the New Yorker in January.
“Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to (Islamic State). I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally, weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11,” Obama told Todd.
FactCheck.org issued a verdict Monday afternoon that like others was based on the transcript from New Yorker reporter Davide Remnick’s interview with Obama.
“The president can make the case that he wasn’t referring only to ISIS when he made his remark about a junior varsity team. But he cannot say that he ‘wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,’ because The New Yorker article and the transcript of the interview make it clear that the context of the president’s remark included ISIS,” FactCheck.org says.
STRIKE ONE: Fack Check. org
STRIKE TWO: PolitiFact ranked Obama’s Meet the Press statement as “false.” That’s slightly better than the worst ranking the site can give: “pants on fire.”
STRIKE THREE: Washington Post Fact Checker gave Earnest its worst ranking.
Alabama Democrat Candidate For the 3rd Congressional District. J.T. Smith Says … “Actions of Republicans in Congress are Worse than #ISIL”
WHAT A SICK SOB … WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?
J.T. Smith, a Democrat candidate for Alabama’s 3rd Congressional district tweeted the following out on Monday stating that the “actions of Republicans in Congress are worse than #ISIL”. Smith is the Democrat nominee is facing Alabama GOP Rep. Mike Rogers. Smith actually took to Facebook to try and talk his way out of this nonsensical, reprehensible comment. Sorry JT, Iraq War veteran or no vet, you are an ass. ISIS rapes and murders little girls, they behead Americans, they savagely and brutally kill anything in their path and you would make such a comparison to the GOP?
So when Democrats are not calling Republicans racists, they are calling them terrorists instead. UNREAL.
Mr. Smith, an Iraq War veteran who faces Rep. Mike Rogers in November, later took to Facebook to explain his tweet.
“Twitter does not allow for context, but this does,” he said. “I am not saying that the Republican Party is beheading people in the streets, obviously. Here in America, because we are a civilized democracy, we do not use violence against each other as a means of control. The Republicans have used the economy as a means to terrorize the people of this country.”
This should be subtitled, Mr. Smith doesn’t go to Washington.
From The Gateway Pundit, “This followed Virginia Democrat Mike Dickinson‘s tweet yesterday calling on God to infect all NRA members with the Ebola virus.” Honestly, what is wrong with these hateful, unhinged people? Really Sir, you want people to die who you don’t agree with. Oh that liberal tolerance.
