The #1 Cable News Network just landed a huge get for their Business channel …
From TV Newser comes the following story, after 20 years at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo is leaving and headed to the the Fox Business Network. The “Money Honey”will re-join Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who first put her on the air when he ran CNBC. Maria over the years has also been called the “Business Babe.” But seriously, Maria Bartiromo is a ground-breaker in the industry, not just for woman, but for reporting on major business stories over the years and making it possible for business channels to succeed. Maria Bartiromo was the first correspondent to report live every day from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. It is hard to believe that I have been watching CNBC that long. Bartiromo will also be joining Lou Dobbs at FBC, who she also worked previously with at CNBC.
Breaking: Maria Bartiromo is leaving CNBC to join Fox Business.
“After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24,” a CNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Her contributions to CNBC are too numerous to list but we thank her for all of her hard work over the years and wish her the best.”
Why I love Maria Bartiromo and have watched her for years on CNBC. Watch the video below and her rip Democrat Senator Ben Cardin a new one for being disingenuous on tax reform and only wanting to tax the rich as an answer. As she says, “its your way or the highway”. And when the senator made the comment, next time let me answer the question, Maria responded and hit him over the head again by saying, “Oh you’ve answered. You have answered quite clearly”.
Maria Bartiromo’s statement on her leaving CNBC:
“After twenty great years of having a front row seat to some of the most important economic stories in the world, it’s hard to sum up the gratitude and appreciation I have for the team that helped make it happen. I am incredibly proud of what we have been able to accomplish. I want to thank all the people at CNBC who have been with me on this journey, and of course the viewers and investors everywhere for making me love every minute of it.”
From The New York Times:
Ms. Bartiromo is expected to work on a program about the day’s developments on Wall Street. Her new deal is also expected to include exposure on the far-more-watched Fox News. (Neither Fox outlet commented publicly on Monday about the hiring.)
The signing is a coup of sorts for Fox Business, which has struggled to establish a profile. Last week, Fox Business averaged fewer than 10,000 viewers in the group that attracts advertisers, those between the ages of 25 and 54. CNBC had more than three times as many with 31,000.
Umm, Did Democrat New York Senator Kirstin Gillibrand Just Admit “We All Knew” that Barack Obama was Misleading Americans on ObamaCare
Welcome to Obamaland where knowing lying and defrauding the American people is simply not being specific.
Check this out, New York Democrat Senator Kirstin Gillibrand just admitted on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that they all knew that Barack Obama was lying when he promised the American people, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period.” When asked by Martha Raddatz whether she had been mislead by Barack Obama, Gillibrand’s response was … “No, we all knew.”
New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said this morning on “This Week” that President Obama should have been more specific when he made his famous promise — which he subsequently backtracked on — that Americans who liked their health care plans could keep them under his signature health care law.
When asked a second time if she felt misled by the president, Gillibrand repeated, “He should have just been specific.”
“No, we all knew.
How do you like them apples America? This Democrat Senator just admitted that they all [Democrats] knew that people could not keep their insurance if they liked it. Kirstin Gillibrand thinks that Obama’s credibility issue is the implementation of “glitchy” Healthcare.gov, not the fact that he and the rest of Democrats knowingly lied to people. What Obama and Democrats did is called FRAUD!
However, its more than that. If they knew and knowing mislead the people as Alinsky principles teach them that the ends justify the means, it would mean they also partook in a conspiracy, collusion and a cover up. Democrats are kidding themselves if they think that they and Obama do not have a credibility problem with “We the People”. Democrats are in for a hell of a time in 2014.
Comments from video:
Raddatz: Do you feel misled by Obama?
Gillibrand: He should have been more specific. Because the point is if you are being offered a terrible health care plan that the minute you get sick you are going to have to go into bankruptcy. Those plans should never be offered. [But yet millions of Americans lost perfectly good healthcare plans, even Democrat Kirsten Powers.]
Raddatz: So were you misled?
Gillibrand: No, we all knew. The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need.
MSNBC Suspends Unhinged, Lunatic, Moonbat, Liberal, Abusive, Homophobic Host Alec Baldwin from “Up Late” for Two Weeks … Cursing at Photograpgher, “Co*ksucking f*g.”
We are asked the age old question, if “unhinged” host of ‘Up Late’ is suspended for two weeks on MSNBC, will any body know its gone?
From Variety comes the news that MSNBC has suspended the unglued Alec Baldwin for two weeks. Baldwin has had quite a past week. . Just hours after a courtroom victory against his stalker, Alec Baldwin is seen chasing down and threatening a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment and calling him a “c**ksucking f*g.” Hmm, making a gay slur in this day and age? Even MSNBC had to act; however, had it been a Republican, GLAD would be calling for their firing.
Alec Baldwin’s “Up Late” program will not air tonight or next Friday on MSNBC in the wake of comments the actor made while dealing with reporters seeking to question him about a salacious court case in which he is involved.
“I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry,” Baldwin said in a statement posted on MSNBC’s website. “Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward”.
Oh wait, another dust up: ‘You Are as Dumb as You Look’: Alec Baldwin’s Latest Public Dust-Up with Journalist Includes Swipe at Fox News.
Actor Alec Baldwin stood toe-to-toe with a TV news reporter outside his Manhattan apartment Friday morning, angrily demanding to be left alone and saying the reporter would “have a big problem” if the public sidewalk questioning continued.
That Robert Moses works for Fox News affiliate WNYW-TV in New York wasn’t lost on the outspoken liberal thespian, who took a concluding swipe at Moses and his employer.
Moses was covering the conviction of a woman who was stalking Baldwin and asked the actor for follow-up comments; Baldwin, however, warned Moses to leave the sidewalk in front of his building, WNYW noted.
Baldwin, who was returning to his apartment after walking his dog, started by telling Moses, “You’re in my way” as he headed down the sidewalk.
Before finally entering the apartment building, Baldwin turned around again and told Moses, “You are as dumb as you look — you are with Fox, right?”
I would like to address the comments I made this past week.
I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand “Up Late” will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.
Baldwin’s show has been replaced by an episode of ‘Lockup’. What will MSLSD do when Lockup gets better ratings?
UPDATE I: Alec Baldwin: My MSNBC Show Might Not Return.
If the show did not return, I guess it’s 10 viewers will be extremely disappointed.
“If the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming,” the actor wrote on Saturday.
The morning after MSNBC announced a two-week suspension of Alec Baldwin’s late night show, the actor has expressed uncertainty if the program will return at all.
“Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now.”
HEY DEBBIE, BRING IT …
Baghdad Bob DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tells Candy Crowley of CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ that Democrats will be able to run on Obamacare as an advantage. Even a perplexed Crowley was a bit taken back by the response when she asked the Florida US Representative whether Obamacare would weigh heavily upon Democrats in the 2014 elections.
I guess Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinks that the American people will just forget that they were lied to by Democrats. I guess the millions of people who will have lost the insurance that they wanted to keep are just going to forgive and forget. Hmm, I guess the Democrats up for reelection in 2014 that went to the White House in a panic over the disastrous “train wreck” that is Obamacare will not be an issue, eh? Also, five vulnerable Democrat Senators are pushing plans to delay Obamacare. Why would they be doing that unless they wanted to avoid it like the plague? I say have Democrats run on Obamacare, I dare you.
I guess Debbie thinks Barack Obama has coattails … oops, he does but they are going in the wrong direction.

The Obama WH Deceit Continues … Obama & His Minions Knew Users Would Not Like Obamacare’s High Costs and Limited Options
They knew folks and they just didn’t care …
America, The fact that you can’t log on the Obamacare website Helathcare.gov may be the least of your problems.
As reported by Jake Tapper at CNN, the Obama Administration was concerned that once users were able to get on the website and view the costs and options available to them at the Obamacare website, they would be disappointed with high prices and limited choice. The source is directly from notes from the Obama administration’s self described war room.
Officials expressed concern that the next shoe to drop in the evolving story about the Affordable Care Act would be disappointment from consumers once they are able to get on the troubled HealthCare.gov website – disappointment because of sticker shock and limited choice, according to a new document obtained by CNN.
“Mike described a general concern of PM (plan management team): getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans; the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices; and, in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. Additionally, in some cases there will be relatively high cost plans,” say the notes from the Obama administration’s Obamacare ‘War Room’ from one week ago.
Can we just call Obamacare for what it truly is, a fraud on the American people.

CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Host Bob Schieffer Says “Obamacare Rollout Fight Worse than Shutdown” … “Worse and Worser” (VIDEO)
CBS Smacks Obamacare rollout …
CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ host Bob Schiefer goes on a rant on today’s Commentary about the Obamacare rollout and actually said that it was worse than the government shutdown. He went on to say that, “we have heard from all the people who’s fault it wasn’t.” Schieffer further opines, “It was the Washington that we have come to know, all talk, all the time, but at the the of the day just another example of how government seems incapable of making things better and it never seems to learn.”
In the wake of the rollout Barack Obama actually had the audacity to compare Obamacare to Apple; however, Schieffer brings some sanity and honesty back to the conversation. Schieffer matter of the fact stated, “Does anyone believe that successful start-ups like Amazon or Google would have risked launching their programs before they were properly tested? There may be a lesson there, maybe if those involved had spent less time refining the talking points and more time actually trying to make things.” OUCH!!!
Worse & Worser
Mitt Romney Says “Fundamental Dishonesty” Over Obamcare Is ‘Rotting it Away” and “Put in Peril” Obama’s Second Term (VIDEO)
Barack Obama, ‘The Lying King’: Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive …
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” over his signature health care program, Obamacare, has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.” Romney went on to say that Barack Obama intentionally mislead the American people on the core elements of Obamacare. Romney went on to say that time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.
“Perhaps the most important lesson the president, I think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the American people the truth. When he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period (VIDEO), he said that time and again, he wasn’t telling the truth. I think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
“… but the key, I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. He could know it by looking at Massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. He could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn’t. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was NBC News that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that’s not some little number, that’s 6 million American people.”
Last year’s losing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” on the Affordable Care Act has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Romney said Obama’s handling of Obamacare’s promises “has undermined the foundation of his second term – I think it is rotting it away.”
He added that what “has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case….”
He said “had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket… there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed.”
How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.
Read Full poll results HERE.
Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
MSNBC Strikes Again: VIDEO of Numerous Examples of Obama Appearing to be Left in the Dark from ‘Fast & Furious’ to ‘Benghazi’ to ‘IRS-gate’, etc … The Bystander in Chief or Did He Know All Along and Is Lying?
What did the President know and when?
Barack Obama was supposed to be the smartest president ever. Now we see a president is a mere onlooker in his own White House. MSNBC and ‘The Morning Joe’ delivered a damning video of Barack Obama, the Bystander in Chief, who appears to be just clueless and left in the dark. But is it really possible that an individual, the President of the United States, could be that far out of the loop and disengaged from all things bad and scandalous in his administration like Fast & Furious, IRS-gate, Benghazi terror attack, NSA-gate, AP-gate, and the Obamacare rollout. But at the same time Obama is in the minutia with Obamacare in acting like an insurance agent selling plans and getting involved in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.
Is this really a case of Obama being a bystander, or his attempt for plausible deniability? Does anyone really think Obama is out of the loop, or are all of his actions intentional with a smile?
So what is worse America, a liar as president, or a complete and total incompetent? Let this be a lesson to all Americans why you never elect a community agitator as president or some one so unqualified to do the job.
Obama White House Admits … ‘It’s True’ Some Americans Won’t Be Able to Keep Their Health Care Plan Under Obamacare
Well how do you like them apples America, were you ever told during the 2012 presidential election by Barack Obama that people would lose their healthcare, if they liked their plan?
White House Press Secretary was asked by the WH press whether President Barack Obama mislead Americans with regards to Obamacare and whether individuals could keep their plan if they liked it, a cornerstone of Obamacare prommises … From the podium, will you admit that when president said, if you have a plan, you’ll get to keep it, that that was not true?”
From The Weekly Standard:
White House spokesman Jay Carney explained at today’s briefing that “it’s true” some Americans will not be able to keep their health care plan under Obamacare:
After some throat clearing, Carney said, “So it’s true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that do not meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the Affordable Care Act.”
This White House is in deep trouble as they have been caught in a major lie. Obama and his minions are not going to be able to play word games and say it all depends on what is, is.
