Megyn Kelly Roasts MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough as He Shills His Book, ‘The Right Path’ … “You Can Join His Four Viewers” Tomorrow Morning on The Morning Joe

HA, HA, HA … Megyn Kelly just scorched former US Rep. Joe Scarborough and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe … oh she is subtle and good!

Last night Joe Scarborough, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ went into the lions den to promote his new book, ‘The Right Path’. Or so he thought. As Megyn Kelly had a good time at Scarborough’s expense as he attempted to plug his new book, that is when she hit him with the knock out punch as she ended the interview … You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning. Ok so she was embellishing a bit, The Morning Joe has 9 viewers. Of course this was harmless banter, not the personal attacks one gets when going on MSNBC.

As Scarborough tried to steer the conversation back towards politics, Kelly couldn’t resist continuing the roast. Even when she plugged his book, she made sure to note how Fox News has “so many viewers,” insinuating he came to the right place to promote it.

Then she went after his show’s ratings.

“Thanks for being here,” Kelly began. “You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning… No, just kidding.”

An MSNBC host appeared on Fox News tonight. No, you’re not reading this from a parallel universe where dogs walk humans, that actually happened. Joe Scarborough appeared on Megyn Kelly‘s show to plug his new book, and the interview quickly turned into a roast where Kelly got in a few barbs at Scarborough’s expense.

Scarborough complimented Kelly on his set, at which point she shot back, “There’s still a blond woman on the set interrupting you at every turn.” And, referencing one of Scarborough’s worst moments, she warned, “If you snap your fingers at me, you’d have eight fingers instead of ten.”

Barack Obama White House Told Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to Lie to American People About Social Security Adding to National Debt

TURBO TAX TIMMY SAYS OBAMA WHITE HOUSE TOLD HIM TO LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …

In his memoir ‘Stress Test’ former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the Obama  White House wanted him to mislead and lie to Americans about the long term costs of Social Security on Sunday talk shows. SOUND FAMILIAR? According to Geithner, the White House communications director specifically told him not to say that Social Security contributes to the national deficit in an upcoming appearance on the Sunday morning talk shows, even though he believes it does, because it might inflame and anger the Democratic base.   What, say it isn’t so … the Obama Administration wanted their minions to lie to the American people?!?  ‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, signaling that we [Democrats] intended to protect Social Security. Lies, lies and more lies from the Obama administration that makes everything about politics.

However, before we give Geithner any medals for his truthfulness, maybe he would like to explain why he did not resign? It is a crime what this administration has perpetrated upon the American people. If a Republican presidency had been caught in this many lies and scandals, the MSM would have drummed them out of office.

The UK Daily Mail:

The White House wanted Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to lie on Sunday talk shows to downplay the part Social Security played in driving the deficit, it was revealed today.

Geithner writes in his memoir Stress Test, out today, that the White House communications director asked him to downplay the long term cost of Social Security spending to mollify the Democratic Party’s base.

‘I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute,’ he says.

‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.’

UREAL … How many more lies must the Obama administration be caught in before “We the People” disregard everything that they say?

Bias, What Media Bias? Just 7% of Mainstream Reporters Are Republican

Some headlines just speak for themselves …

From The WAPO comes the following, ‘Just 7 percent of journalists are Republicans. That’s far fewer than even a decade ago’. Subtitled, What MSM Bias?  , according to a new study by Indiana University, the percentage of journalists identifying themselves as Republicans has decreased dramatically over the years.  The survey found that just 7.1% consider themselves Republicans as compared with 18% in 2002. The percentage was even much higher numbers in earlier decades. The BS of the MSM is that they like to call themselves Independent to give the sense of “fair and balanced;” however, they consistently go to the LEFT. Of the 7%, how many do you think are actually Conservative?

Consider this when you filter what the Democrat-MSM Complex is reporting a story.

A majority of American journalists identify themselves as political independents although among those who choose a side Democrats outnumber Republicans four to one, according to a new study of the media conducted by two Indiana University professors.

Write Lars Wilnat and David Weaver, professors of journalism at Indiana, of their findings:

Compared with 2002, the percentage of full-time U.S. journalists who claim to be Democrats has dropped 8 percentage points in 2013 to about 28 percent, moving this figure closer to the overall population percentage of 30 percent, according to a December 12-15, 2013, ABC News/Washington Post national poll of 1,005 adults. This is the lowest percentage of journalists saying they are Democrats since 1971. An even larger drop was observed among journalists who said they were Republicans in 2013 (7.1 percent) than in 2002 (18 percent), but the 2013 figure is still notably lower than the percentage of U.S. adults who identified with the Republican Party (24 percent according to the poll mentioned above).

After All These Years Monica Lewinsky Writes About Her Affair with President Bill Clinton, “Sure, My Boss Took Advantage of Me, …” (Update: Lynne Cheney Ponders Hillary Clinton’s Involvement in Realease of Article)

Just curious, if some one is taken advantage of, can it really be consensual?

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Monica Lewinsky writes for the first time about her affair with President Bill Clinton … “It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.” Lewinsky says that she regrets what happened between herself and President Clinton, but insists it was consensual.  However, she also pens that Bill Clinton also took advantage of her … ““Sure, my boss took advantage of me.” Which begs the question, how can something really be consensual when there is a position of authority and that individual takes advantage of it?

It’s rather comical to read responses from the MSM like CNN, Stop judging Monica Lewinsky, stating “they could learn a few things from Monica Lewinsky,” when they were at the top of the list who Lewinsky references when her abuse came in the aftermath that were able to brand her.

ABC News – VIDEO

Monica Lewinsky writes in Vanity Fair for the first time about her affair with President Clinton: “It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.” She also says: “I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

After 10 years of virtual silence (“So silent, in fact,” she writes, “that the buzz in some circles has been that the Clintons must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth”), Lewinsky, 40, says it is time to stop “tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

Maintaining that her affair with Clinton was one between two consenting adults, Lewinsky writes that it was the public humiliation she suffered in the wake of the scandal that permanently altered the direction of her life: “Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position. . . . The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”

The Washington Free Beacon:

Karl in particular cited Lewinsky’s reaction to the Diane Blair papers, first reported by The Washington Free Beacon. Hillary Clinton, according to Blair’s documents, referred to the former White House intern as a “narcissistic loony tune” and partially blamed herself for the affair. Lewinsky wrote she found Hillary Clinton’s impulse to blame the “woman” for President Clinton’s transgressions “troubling”

Of course we all remember Bubba and his infamous statement of I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky, not a single time. So in the end, Monica Lewinsky was branded and Bill Clinton is looked upon as the elder statesman of the Democrat party.

EXIT QUESTION: Who finds this a bit too convenient coming out this far away from a potential 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential run in of all magazines, Vanity Fair? Why do I think this article got Hillary’s blessing before it was released to print?

UPDATE I: Lynne Cheney Suggests Hillary Approved Monica Piece to ‘Get It Out of the Way’.

With Hillary Clinton almost assuredly running for president in 2016, Monica Lewinsky‘s Vanity Fair piece today set off a lot of people’s conspiratorial alarm bells, with some suspicion anti-Clinton forces might have been behind it. But on The O’Reilly Factor tonight, Lynne Cheney suggested it might have actually been pushed by Clinton’s team themselves.

UPDATE II: Lynne Cheney: Hillary Clinton behind Monica Lewinsky?

“I really wonder if this isn’t an effort on the Clintons’ part to get that story out of the way,” Lynne Cheney said during an interview on “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday night. Would Vanity Fair publish anything of Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t want in Vanity Fair?”

Guest host Laura Ingraham responded that the theory “makes perfect sense, and I’m really mad I didn’t think of it first.”

Cheney said that releasing the story in 2014 would allow Clinton to run for president and say the story is “old news” once the 2016 presidential campaign kicks into full gear.

Comedian Rob Schneider Very Critical of Media & Obama’s Handling of the Economy …”We Are Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism”

Rob Schneider critical of the Obamameister …

Former SNL cast member, comedian and actor Rob Schneider held nothing back when voicing his opinions on discussing the path he sees the country on  during an interview with Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT. Schneider was extremely critical of Obama’s handling of the economy and of the MSM for being overly influenced by government and in failing to stand up for ‘We the People”. Many of us wish that Barack Obama was in a job where he was “making copies”.

Rob_Schneider

“Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of,” he said.

He believes comedians are pressured toward one side of the political spectrum.

“There’s a polarization that’s happening…I do think you look can look at government and go, ‘Wow, it is out of control now,’ and if you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered,” Schneider commented.

Schneider was very critical of the President’s handling of the economy and he feels certain policies are impacting businesses.

He was also critical of the media for being overly influenced by the government and not standing up for the American people.

WSJ/NBC Poll: 8% Say that Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) Is Working Well the Way It Is

Remember when Barack Obama said in April 17, 2014 about Obamacare,  “This thing is working” … then again he also said you could keep your insurance if you liked it.

According to a recent WSJ/NBC poll, Americans could not disagree more with President Obama as an incredible 8% say that Obamacare “is working well the way it is.” 8%!!! Do you realize just how bad something has to be to get 8%? But what else would we expect from a law passed along partisan Democrat lines, which no one read and where Barack Obama, Democrats and their shills in the MSM intentionally lied to the American people that under Obamacare you could keep your insurance if you lied it and you could keep your doctor is you liked them, period!

Take a look Democrats as to what you face in the 2014 midterm elections. Feel like running on Obamacare?

Full poll results HERE.

Obama says, “This thing is working” … 

Now the latest edition of the WSJ/NBC poll suggests just how few Americans agree with that statement. A mere 8% of respondents in the new survey say that the Affordable Care Act “is working well the way it is.”

There are differences of opinion on how to respond to the mess Washington has created, but few Americans think it’s time to shut down the debate over the health law. A full 49% say that the law should either be scrapped entirely or given “a major overhaul,” while 40% say the law needs “minor modifications to improve it.”

Mr. Obama’s 44% approval rating lags his 50% disapproval rating. And while 36% of respondents say the health law is a good idea, 46% say it’s a bad idea. Congressional Democrats up for re-election this fall may be especially troubled by these results given that 43% of survey respondents voted for Barack Obama in 2012, versus 34% who voted for Mitt Romney. In the actual 2012 race, Mr. Obama bested Mr. Romney by four percentage points.

Newsbusters points out that shills in the MSM are still trying to spin Obamacare’s poll ratings as a good thing. Chuck Todd tried to spin the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows half of Americans disapprove of Obama as “Improvement” for the Democrat.Hey Chuck, did you see that 8% number? How about the 36% of respondents who said that the health law is a good idea?  Or the 54% who disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy?

Todd argued that “The poll numbers are better, they’re still not good, okay? There is slight improvement on the health care law. And that directly related to slight improvement for President Obama.” Yet, Todd’s own statements don’t hold up to the actual findings of the NBC/WSJ poll.

Charles Krauthammer’s Says 7.1 Million Obamacare Enrollees Is a ‘Phony Number’

Charles Krauthammer brings reason, practicality and reason to the so-called 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees … 

Last night on Fox News’ Special Report, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer called the touted 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees a “phony number”. Krauthammer questioned the validity of the number stating suddenly the Obama WH has a precise number for us after months of nothing. He then went on to say, how many of this 7.1 million number are the ones who were kicked off their healthcare plans by Obamacare and were forced to reapply?  Also, will the in the Democrat media complex actually continue to question the number and look to find the true one by questioning the Obama administration? You mean there is liberal media bias?

“These guys go six months without any idea what the numbers are, and all of a sudden it’s to a decimal point.”

“If it turns out that the overwhelming majority of the so-called 7.1 were people who had health insurance, liked their health insurance, were renewing their health insurance, and got kicked off their health insurance, whose lives are disrupted, premiums are raised, deductibles are raised, and lost their doctors are now among the 7.1 . . . it’s a net negative.”

Where is the transparency that this White House has claimed? Open up all the numbers for us to see. What, are you afraid that Fred Smith has signed up for 12 accounts? How about Richard Hurtz? BTW, are you counting mine? Sorry, but the Obama administration has lost all credibility with their lies, deceit and fraud perpetrated on the American people with Obamacare. Why should anyone think that this is any different?

Top Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Admits Pushing Hollywood Writers to Obamacare into scripts of TV Shows and Movies … Joseph Goebbels Would Be So Proud

UNBELIEVABLE ACTIONS OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ACTUALLY THIS SHOULD BE TERRIFYING TO AMERICANS.

To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda.
In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics.
Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.
I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right.  (Joseph Goebbels)

What might be most shocking about the below Valerie Jarrett interview with ‘Top That’ on Pop Sugar.com is that Democrats and especially the Obama Administration does not even hide it anymore that they and the media are the Democrat-Media Complex. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was out in LA this week meeting with television and movie producers and writers to encourage them to include favorable Obamacare mentions in their scripts. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! A government going to the media to shill their agenda for script and product placement to make it appear that they are mainstream and brainwash the people with propaganda. This is still the United States, is it not?

The Weekly Standard:

“That’s the cool thing,” a host said to the presidential advisor. “You’ve been reaching out to people that are, you know, outside of the norm of what the president might work with. Who else are you working with? Like celebrities, personalities, things like that?”

“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.

 Joseph  Goebbels, Nazi Minister of propaganda, would be so proud of Valerie Jarrett’s actions.

Control of the arts and media was not just a matter of personnel. Soon the content of every newspaper, book, novel, play, film, broadcast and concert, from the level of nationally-known publishers and orchestras to local newspapers and village choirs, was subject to supervision by the Propaganda Ministry, although a process of self-censorship was soon effectively operating in all these fields, leaving the Ministry in Berlin free to concentrate on the most politically sensitive areas such as insuring that both major newspapers, and the new far-reaching, instantaneous state radio presented the unified Nazi worldview. In his 1933 speech, “Radio as the Eighth Great Power” Goebbels said:

“We .. intend a principled transformation in the worldview of our entire society, a revolution of the greatest possible extent that will leave nothing out, changing the life of our nation in every regard …

The following are Joseph  Goebbels’ quotes. It would be pretty difficult to tell whether they were from the Nazi minister of propaganda, or Team Obama:

  • “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” (Joseph Goebbels)
  • “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” (Joseph Goebbels)

MSNBC’s Chris “Tingles” Matthews Least Liked TV Newscasters

It will come as no surprise, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was named the least-liked newscasters, based on survey results from the Q Scores company. The ‘Hardball’ anchor Chris Matthews had the lowest likability score of all the names tested, as he registered only a 6 on the Q Score survey. But don’t worry, Matthews had company at the bottom of the list with fellow MSNBC’ers Andrea Mitchell and Alex Wagner. In comparison, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley came in at number one on the list with a 19.

And just one example of how Tingles won the least liked award … Chris Matthews Gets Angry Over “Thrill Up The Leg” Question on C-SPAN

What do you want in a newscaster? Accuracy? Ethics? A voice of reason in times of duress?

Or do you just want to like your anchor?

If the last part is most important to you, then channel-surf no further than Scott Pelley of the “CBS Evening News.” The newsman topped TheWrap‘s list of most and least-liked newscasters, based on survey results from the Q Scores company.

Pelley’s 19 Positive Q Score, which measures likeability, helped him just beat the No. 2 guy, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who had an 18. Cooper’s 56 Recognizability score places him among the highest on this list.

“Hardball” host Chris Matthews struck out with the lowest likeability score of all.
