Liberal Super PAC ‘Progress Kentucky’ Who Made Racist Comments About Mitch McConnell’s Asian Wife Responsible For Illegal Secretly Recording Opposition Meeting On Ashley Judd
WATERGATE II in the “Blue Grass” State …
It turns out that a liberal super PAC group, “Progress Kentucky,” was responsible for the illegal recordings of Republican Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and his campaign staffers. The secretly and illegally recorded meeting was an opposition discussion on one time Democrat opponent, actor Ashley Judd. As reported at WFPL News, Jacob Conway, an executive committee member of the Jefferson County Democratic Party said the founders of Progressive Kentucky Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison were responsible for the illegal recording and bragged about recording the meeting.
A secret recording of a campaign strategy session between U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and his advisors was taped by leaders of the Progress Kentucky super PAC, says a longtime local Democratic operative.
Mother Jones Magazine released the tape this week. The meeting itself took place on Feb. 2.
Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, says that day, Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison, who founded and volunteered for Progress Kentucky, respectively, bragged to him about how they recorded the meeting.
Much More from Mary Catherine Hamm at Hot Air and the “Water-Gating” of Mitch McConnell. Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party outed ‘Progress Kentucky’ for the good of the party. Sounds more like a the rats fleeing the sinking ship and all individuals for themselves.
Dem Outed Liberal Group On McConnell Recordings For Good Of The Party
As stated at Legal Insurrection, “Mother Jones, who obtained and disseminated the tape as an exclusive, and David Corn better start lawyering up (which I assume they already have), because the question will become What did Mother Jones know about alleged McConnell bugging, and when did it know it?”
More from the illegal taping of the McConnell opposition meeting:
On Feb. 2, McConnell opened his campaign headquarters in the Watterson Office Park in Louisville and invited trusted GOP activists and select media outlets to an open house. The event lasted roughly two hours. Afterward, McConnell and several campaign advisors held a strategy session in an office meeting room.
Morrison and Reilly did not attend the open house, but they told Conway they arrived later and were able to hear the meeting from the hallway.
“They were in the hallway after the, I guess after the celebration and hoopla ended, apparently these people broke for lunch and had a strategy meeting, which is, in every campaign I’ve been affiliated with, makes perfect sense,” says Conway. “One of them held the elevator, the other one did the recording and they left. That was what they told to me from them directly.”

Political Correctness: AP Stylebook Revises Definition of ‘Islamist’ as AP Caves PC Pressures … Term “Islamist,” Will No Longer Be Used To Describe “Islamic Fighters, Militants, Extremists Or Radicals”
If it looks like an Islamist, walks like an Islamist and talks like an Islamist, geuess what AP … It’s an Islamist.
Remember when the journalist news used to be about reporting the news and not about worrying whether someone felt uncomfortable? Now the AP wants to redefine the enemy of the United States. How about a new definition for the AP … gutless, politically correct cowards?
This is yet another example why many have no trust or respect in the MSM. Just days after dropping “illegal immigrant” from its influential stylebook, the Associated Press has revised its definition of another politically charged term, Islamist. The AP stated that it will no longer use the term ”Islamist” to describe an Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals. Instead, the AP now defines an ”Islamist” as an “advocate or supporter of a political movement that favors reordering government and society in accordance with laws prescribed by Islam. Of course this was a result of the cowards at AP succumbing to the pressures of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Yup, here is one of the Islamists that the AP refuses to define as an Islamic Fighters, Militants, Extremists Or Radicals
Following on the heels of the Tuesday decision by The Associated Press to discontinue use of the term “illegal immigrant,” the news agency on Thursday revised its stylebook entry for another politically charged term. The term “Islamist,” the AP clarified in a Thursday afternoon alert to online stylebook subscribers, should not be used as “a synonym for Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals.”
“Islamist” is frequently used as a label for conservative Islamic political movements, particularly Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, the group’s Palestinian offshoot. It generally carries a negative connotation.
The AP first added the term to its stylebook in 2012. The definition initially read:
Supporter of government in accord with the laws of Islam. Those who view the Quran as a political model encompass a wide range of Muslims, from mainstream politicians to militants known as jihadi.
Just how gutless and politically correct has the AP become? These folks are more worried about if they upset terrorists than they are in correctly and accurately reporting the news. If these jokers were around in the 1940′s I am guessing that they would have provided cute and flowery definitions for the term Nazi’s and fascists.
Sorry, but we will continue to use the term “Islamist” as it is meant to be and for effect we will add the term radical jihad Islamist fascist for effect.

Why we love Dr. Ben Carson, he calls it like it is an is unafraid to do so.
Last night on Mark Levin’s radio show Dr. Ben Carson, the new voice of conservatism, discussed the “left-wing media’s” attempt to attack him and stop his speech on many issues and views on gay marriage and religion. As Carson has stated in the past, political correctness, threatens to destroy our nation. Carson states that “they” need to shut me up completely and the reason why the attacks against him are so vicious. There is nothing like a comment from a Black conservative for the LEFT to lose their minds. Dr. Carson told Levin that, in his experience, white liberals are the “most racist people there are.”
“They need to shut me up, they need to delegitimize me,” Carson told the radio host while explaining why he believes the media has scorned him for lumping homosexuality in with unsavory sexual acts like bestiality and pedophilia.
Levin added that the doctor has been attacked by “white liberals” because he is a black conservative, to which Carson replied: “They are the most racist people there are. Because they put you in a little category, a little box. You have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”
“I don’t have a particular agenda that I’m pushing,” he added. “So it would be particularly difficult for them to trip me up.”
As Weasel Zippers aptly states, Libs prove Ben Carson’s point by calling him a “token” or “uncle tom” in 3 … 2 … 1.
With all due respect to Bill O’Reilly … DR. BEN CARSON IS THE IS THE SECOND MOST FEARED MAN OF THE LEFT BEHIND RUSH AND MIGHT EVEN WELL BE #1!
Obama’s doom and gloom, Chicken Little, the sky is falling sequestration rants are coming home to roost …
The Daily Caller reports that the Obama regime scolded their “lapdog” media for failing to cover the pain that the White House went out of their way to ensure would happen due to sequestration. How dare the media, who has acted as a propaganda tool for Obama, not also report on the faux pain of sequestration. White House mouth piece Jay the Carney claimed that the WH did not mislead the public on sequestration. Carney became defensive when challenged by the media of what became of past statements from the Obama administration on the horrors that would occur due to sequestration? What else would we expect from this thin skinned, divisive and truth-challenged administration?
White House spokesman Jay Carney lamented during a press conference Tuesday that the media are not covering the sequester’s “impacts on real people.”
“The impacts are real,” Carney insisted during an exchange with Fox News’ Ed Henry, “and they effect real people. And I know that there hasn’t been a lot of coverage of the impacts on real people.”
Henry was pressing Carney on why the Obama administration had originally told reporters that the sequester would pull 5,000 border patrol agents off the border, only to announce Monday that the agency had reconsidered the decision for the short-term.
Obama and his minions just cannot comprehend that the media is not making up stories to fit Obama’s narrative on sequestration. From past actions from the propagandists media, there is a part of me that finds this humorous as well that the MSM has drawn a line in the sand as well.
Bill O’Reilly Goes Mental on Laura Ingraham in “Thump the Bible” Gay Marriage Controversy … O’Reilly Get’s Defensive & Stops Discussion Within Seconds
Who here has grown tired of Bill O’Reilly?
Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham went at it last night on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ over the “Thump the Bible” controversy. Of course the debate occurred when O’Reilly actually allowed her to speak and was not acting defensively and like a boorish fool. As stated by the Gateway Pundit, the fire works started almost immediately.
Keep it up O’Reilly and this is how you will lose your audience. After watching the below segment, I am not sure what the difference between O’Reilly and a liberal, blowhard from the MSM who refuses to allow a guest with an opposing point of view? How can anyone expect an honest debate and discussion of an issue if 5 seconds into the debate, you shut down the words?
Bill O’Reilly tonight responded to criticisms from the right over his commentary last week that gay marriage opponents need to do more than just “thump the Bible” if they want to win the argument. After a Talking Points Memo largely focused on mocking liberal media attempts to gin up a feud between himself and Rush Limbaugh, O’Reilly brought on Laura Ingraham, who actually told O’Reilly he was wrong in saying what he said. O’Reilly was stunned with Ingraham, shouting over her and telling her “I’m disappointed in you.”
Ingraham first surprised O’Reilly by agreeing that there actually is a feud of sorts going on between him and people like Limbaugh, given Limbaugh’s harsh condemnation of O’Reilly’s commentary. O’Reilly dismissed the idea he and Limbaugh are enemies, saying “I don’t care what he says, he can say whatever he wants.
A note to Bill O’Reilly and I say this will all du respect because O’Reilly did great work with Megan’s Law; however, The LEFT fear Rush Limbaugh, not you. They fear Rush because he actually stands for something. You are a legend in your own mind.
The Liberal MSM’s War on Woman … CNN’s Candy Crowley Displays an Overamount of Sympathy for the Two Teen Steubenville Rapists, Trent Mays & Ma’lik Richmond
TALK ABOUT YOUR MEDIA. THE MSM CONTINUES TO BE JUST SHAMELESS …
Yesterday, Judge Thomas Lipps found two teen football players, Trent Mays & Ma’lik Richmond, guilty in the Steubenville rape case of a 16 year old girl. Just after the verdict, CNN’s Candy Crowley reported the story and actually had the audacity to take sympathy and express sadness for the two rapists. Unbelievable. As stated at Crooks and Liars, instead of Crowley wondering and questioning why the 16 and 17 year old football players were not tried as adults, she cared more to express concern for the two individuals who raped and intoxicated girl. What part about convicted sex offenders does not Candy Crowley not understand? She is worried about their lives are ruined. What about the rape victim?
Shortly after the guilty verdict in the Steubenville rape case was announced, Candy Crowley took to the airwaves to report it and connect with their reporter on the ground for more details. Her lead-in to the remote shot was shameful.
Crowley was filled with sadness for two young men who took advantage of a drunk and possibly drugged young girl because the judge actually held them accountable for what they did. Instead of wondering aloud why they weren’t tried as adults, she was instead very concerned that now they would have to register for the rest of their lives as sex offenders.
THE SHAMLESS ACTS OF THE MSM MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE CONVICTED THAN THE VICTIMS
So much for victims rights at CNN. Of course the two convicted boys were crying in court after the judge read the verdict, they had both been caught, convicted and held accountable for their actions. Well kinda. One has to wonder how a 17 year old was not tried as an adult. The same can be true for the 16 year old as well. The two were hardly crying when they raped the intoxicated girl, took pictures of her and later laughed and bragged about it on social media.
Ain’t No Way to Treat a Media … Obama Administration Calls Female Reporter a “B*tch, C*nt, A**hole” For Asking Tough Questions
Call it an Obama ‘War on Woman’ a ‘War on the Media’ and ‘War on Freedom of the Press’.
Has the media bloom finally come off the Barack Obama rose? Is the MSM finally going to do their job and hold the Obama administration accountable for their actions, policies and agenda? Via Jammie Wearing Fools comes the following accounts of how the vile Team Obama treats the media and namely woman. Forget the threats that veteran journalist Bob Woodward received from the Obama gang, what about the stories from liberal journalist Jonathan Alter? He recounts the time that a young female reporter was asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary when she was bullied by Team Obama. Jonathan Alter stated to the NY Post, “She was doing her job”, and they [Team Obama] were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — “b*tch, c*nt, a**hole.”
Finally, this week, reporters are pushing back. Even Jonathan Alter — who frequently appears on the Obama-friendly MSNBC — came forward to say he, too, had been treated horribly by the administration for writing something they didn’t like.
“There is a kind of threatening tone that, from time to time — not all the time — comes out of these guys,” Alter said this week. During the 2008 campaign swing through Berlin, Alter said that future White House press secretary Robert Gibbs disinvited him from a dinner between Obama and the press corps over it.
“I was told ‘Don’t come,’ in a fairly abusive e-mail,” he said. “[It] made what Gene Sperling wrote [to Woodward] look like patty-cake.”
“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”
As we always say, where there is smoke there is fire and when there is one cockroach on the floor, there are hundreds in the walls. The MSM is starting to spill the beans and come clean on this vile Chicago-style thug presidential administration that has disdain for a free press and like to threaten the media to keep them in line. If the MSM ever decided to abandon Obama altogether and report on him like they would a Republican president, his approval rating would sink into the 20′s.
Just when you thought that the US Congress had the lowest poll ratings, along comes America’s views on the main stream media. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, only 6% of those polled think that the media is very trustworthy, while 42% do not trust the news media and 12% believe the news it reports is not trustworthy at all. Before the media comments on the low Congressional approval ratings, they might just want to look in the mirror first. With the bias that exists in the media today and a liberal media complex that acts more like a propaganda arm of the Obama White House than a concerned investigative media, is it any wonder why so many do not trust their reporting.
Most voters still get their news from television and consider the news reported by the media generally trustworthy.
Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters say they get most of their news from TV, including 32% who get it from cable news networks and 24% who get it from traditional network news. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that another 25% use the Internet as their main source of news, while only 10% still rely on print newspapers. Seven percent (7%) get most of their news from radio. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-six percent (56%) of all voters regard the news reported by the media as at least somewhat trustworthy, but that includes just six percent who think it is Very Trustworthy. Forty-two percent (42%) don’t trust the news media, with 12% who believe the news it reports is Not At All Trustworthy.
The PJ Tatler opines, what a sad state of affairs when the two institutions, the media and Congress, that should be the two institutions Americans should rely on most. However, sadly both have failed them. The good news at least is that the American people realize how useless both really are.
US Secretary of State John Kerry Invents New Country of Kyrzakhstan … Imagine How the MSM would Have Reported if He were a Republican?
What a joke … You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, unless you are a Democrat.
The new US Secretary of State John Kerry is off to a rather inauspicious start. In his first trip abroad during a speech he managed to invent a new country … Kyrzakhstan. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State needs a geography lesson. As reported at the Daily Mail, Kerry’s gaffe emerged as he arrived in London for the first leg of an 11-day tour of Europe and the Middle East, making his debut in his new job. Imagine, just imagine how this gaffe would have been reported if Kerry was a Republican. But of course there is no liberal, media double standard. With the bumbling, stumbling stupidity of and anti-Israel nomination of recently Senate approved Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and John “why the long face” Kerry, should we expect anything else from the failed Obama presidency? Dear God help us.
In an embarrassing slip of the tongue, the new US secretary of state praises US diplomats working to secure “democratic institutions” in a Central Asian country, which does not exist.
US Secretary of State John Kerry was referring to the poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, Kyrgyzstan, but he appeared to confuse it with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan.
Vice President Joe Biden says We’re Counting on “Legitimate Media” for Successful Gun Control Anti-Second Amendment Effort
The Legitimate Media? You mean the Barack Obama, corrupt, liberal MSM complex that has been nothing more than a propaganda tool for Democrats and the Obama Administration?
These guys don’t even pretend anymore that the MSM is not their propaganda vehicle. Biden calls for a call to arms of the complicit, liberal, in the tank media for Barack Obama. During a press conference on gun
safety control in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden stated that any reports that suggest that Barack Obama was trying to take weapons away from gun owners was a “bunch of malarkey.” Really, tell that to the individuals who own guns that are on Senator Feinstein’s list of banned guns. Biden said that the Obama WH was counting on the “LEGITIMATE MEDIA” to continue to carry Obama’s water and was key to convincing the American people to provide successful gun control. WHAT, as opposed to the illegitimate media!!! What, is Biden afraid of, a media that actually cares about the US Constitution to provide the truth to the American people and educate them as to what the Second Amendment really means? They are so afraid of the truth that they would try to diminish anyone who would dare differ with their policies and call them for what they really are. Think about that statement America. Biden is basically calling out the liberal corrupt media complex, otherwise known was Obama’s lackeys in the media to provide further propaganda that was pro-Obama, rather than doing what the media was intended to do … question government and inform “We the People”.
“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden added, warning that people would continue to “misrepresent” the White House’s plans for gun control.
“The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that its an individual right to bear arms – all give a lie to the argument that what we’re trying to do is somehow unconstitutional, or somehow goes after the legitimate right to own and bear arms and to hunt and protect yourselves,” Biden added.
Who knew that the Second Amendment had anything to do with hunting? As the Lonely Conservative opines, “To use his own term, he’s full of malarkey. The second amendment was never about hunting and he knows it. But he knows his friends in the “legitimate media” have his back.” Sadly, you would be correct.
EXIT QUESTION #1: Do you know when the so-called “Legitimate media” is illegitimate? When a VP makes such a comment about the legitimate media and not one person asks what and who Biden thinks the “illegitimate” media is.
EXIT QUESTION #2: Imagine what the election, his polling and Obama’s first term in office would have looked like had the MSM fairly reported on Obama and his failure after failure with the economy, jobs, unemployment, record debt, record spending and foreign policy disasters?
