Daily Beast's Tina Brown Likens Ted Cruz to Taliban

On Wednesday, MSNBC faux conservative morning host Joe Scarborough ripped into Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) over Cruz’s attempt to push defunding of Obamacare. “He is attacking Tom Coburn as being a member of the surrender caucus, when Tom Coburn – and yes, Senator Cruz, and I – put our political lives on the line more in six months than Ted Cruz will put his on the line in a lifetime.” Jul 31, 2013 2:13 PM PT

WH: Not Obama's Job to Comment on Weiner, Filner

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama had not commented on the sex scandals involving San Diego Mayor Bob Filner or New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner because “his job is not to comment on those issues, but to focus on what he can do to get this economy growing faster and creating more jobs.” Jul 31, 2013 2:09 PM PT

Obama Congratulates SF Giants on Involvement with 'It Gets Better' Bully Dan Savage

On Monday, President Obama hosted the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, where he promptly congratulated them on their involvement in the Dan Savage-led “It Gets Better” program. Obama said, “So as the Giants prove every day, baseball can be even bigger than all-stars and Cy Young winners.

Obama: Keystone XL Won't Create Jobs, Will Raise Gas Prices

In a New York Times interview published Saturday, President Obama came out foursquare against the Keystone XL pipeline, claiming that it would not create jobs. “Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator,” Obama said. “There is no evidence that that’s true.” He then blamed Canada for not “doing more” to prevent carbon emissions from oil sands. Obama continued, “I meant what I said; I'm going to evaluate this based on whether or not this is going to significantly contribute to carbon in our atmosphere. And there is no doubt that Canada at the source in those tar sands could potentially be doing more to mitigate carbon release.” Jul 28, 2013 8:22 AM PT

Oops: Kerry Refers to Palestinian Territories as 'Country'

On Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke at the United Nations, where he gushed over the “courageous decision” by the Israelis and Palestinians to try to restart negotiations.

The Lies Never Stopped: The SEXTcapades of the 'Next Mayor of NYC'

As the swirl of events surrounding former disgraced Congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner reaches epic proportions, new details are emerging about Weiner’s ambitions and his sexting of young women. Weiner was likely considering a mayoral run as early as March 2011, before he had even resigned from Congress; he likely lied in his recent press conference in which he stated that his sexting had stopped during the summer of 2012; and it is now obvious that Weiner fibbed repeatedly to the press about cleaning up his act between his resignation and his admissions of continued misbehavior this week.

**SHOCK** Breitbart News Journalist/Activists Revealed to Be Journalists, Activists

On Thursday, Mother Jones broke the massive scoop that Breitbart News participates in both journalism and conservative activism, reporting that reporters from this publication attended a conservative coalition meeting dubbed Groundswell. This stunning revelation was supported by the late Andrew Breitbart, who noted in his book, Righteous Indignation, that the goal of his site was “to knock down the false edifice that is mainstream media, that is built upon the false proposition of 'objective' journalism and the grotesque anti-American proposition of political correctness.” Jul 25, 2013 7:46 PM PT

Obama on Economy: Sail With Me to 'Ocean of Tomorrows'!

Speaking on Wednesday at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, President Obama laid out his plan for the failing economy. After his hour-long mashup of old Keynesian bromides, leftist platitudes, authoritarian braggadocio, and demonization of political opponents, he concluded with this glittery line, paraphrasing writer Carl Sandburg: "America, we have made it through the worst of yesterday’s winds. And if we find the courage to keep moving forward; if we set our eyes on the horizon, we too will find an ocean of tomorrows, a sky of tomorrows – for America’s people, and for this great country that we love."

CA Set to Release 10K Moderate to High-Risk Inmates

California is all set to release up to 9,600 more prison inmates into society, most of them moderate-to-high-risk criminals, under the terms of a 2008 Supreme Court ruling suggesting that overcrowding was violating inmates’ Constitutional rights. The state of California has been forced to release inmates until it reaches 137% of capacity, even though Governor Jerry Brown has stated in the past that the state needs no new prisons. In January, Brown explained, “I don't think that's smart, and I don't think the law requires it, and moreover, management of a prison is quintessentially an executive function.” Jul 24, 2013 9:16 AM PT
