Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen. -George Orwell

Poll: Fox Remains the Most Trusted Name In News
Fox News once again found itself at the very top of Public Policy Polling's annual survey of the most trusted news networks in America. A whopping 35% of those polled trust Fox News more than any other television news outlet. Fox even embarrassed second place. PBS earned that spot with only 14%.
Bringing up the rear are ABC (11%), CNN (9%), CBS (6%), and in dead last with a three-way tie at 3% are NBC, MSNBC, and Comedy Central.
While Fox News also ranks at the top of the "least trusted" television news networks, the "Fair and Balanced" network only earns that title by 33% of those surveyed. That is a stunning failure for the legions dedicated to marginalizing Fox --which includes Media Matters and all the rest of the mainstream media. MSNBC wins 19% of "least trusted," followed by Comedy Central (11%), CNN (5%), and the rest.
When asked about trusting or not trusting individual networks. Fox News came in second to PBS with 44/42. CNN stayed even at 40/40 -- proving once again that the "Most Trusted Name In News" is not.
MSNBC came in dead last and upside down with a brutal 34/44.
This is the fifth year PPP has conducted this survey and the fifth year Fox News has come out on top.

Cory Remsburg, The War Hero Obama Honored During The State Of The Union, Has An Incredible Story
Remsburg joined the Army on his 18th birthday. He wanted to join at 17, but his father, a retired U.S. Air Force Reserve firefighter, refused to sign the papers.
Remsburg was first deployed in 2003 when the U.S. invaded Iraq, according to the Arizona Republic.
He's been on 10 deployments total to Iraq and Afghanistan and has spent 39 months in combat as an elite infantryman. Remsburg was made leader of his company's heavy weapons squad during his time serving.
In 2009, a roadside bomb blast left Remsburg nearly dead, face down in a canal with shrapnel lodged in his brain. The IED went off while Remsburg and other Rangers were on their way to clear a landing zone for transport helicopters, according to the Republic. Other Rangers were also injured in the blast.
The explosion left him in a coma for three months, barely able to speak or move, with a traumatic brain injury. Remsburg lost sight in his right eye and his left arm became paralyzed, according to the Army Times.
He's been through dozens of surgeries and completes six hours of occupational, physical, and speech therapy every day. And his hard work is paying off — he's now able speak, stand, and walk.
After years in hospitals and rehab centers, Remsburg moved into his own home, where he has a full-time caregiver. His recovery is still progressing, and he is now awaiting a retina transplant for his right eye, according to The Times.
Remsburg has been awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart, among other honors, for his dedicated service. He's 30 years old and lives in Phoenix.
It occurred to me last night while watching the tribute to Remsburg that it was a good way to end the SOTU and that it would probably be the most memorable thing about the whole evening.  It was certainly the most inspiring.  It also seemed that Obama was subtly trying to associate his struggles with those of Cory Remsburg.

So it came as no surprise this morning when I noticed people talking about this:
Last night's speech also ended on an emotional -- and upbeat -- note when Obama recognized Army Ranger Cory Remsburg, who was almost killed in Afghanistan and continues to recuperate from a brain injury. "My fellow Americans, men and women like Cory remind us that America has never come easy," the president said. "Our freedom, our democracy, has never been easy. Sometimes we stumble, we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged. But for more than 200 years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress." That story could also apply to Obama himself: Nothing in his seven years on the national political stage (2007-2014) has come easy. The 2008 race for the Democratic nomination. Even that general election. The health-care law. The re-election campaign. And now the president's current situation in which he finds himself bloodied and bruised after the botched health-care rollout. Perseverance is an important quality for any president. Bill Clinton was usually able to talk his way out of sticky situations. But Obama's M.O. is to grind it out. That, more than anything else, was the message he wanted to send last night -- both he and the country are grinding it out.
Got that?  Dear Leader has been "bloodied and bruised"...just like Cory Remsburg.  Murray is admitting that Obama was literally using Remsburg as a prop in order to highlight Obama's heroic struggle! 

Go back and read again the extensive injuries that Remsburg has suffered on the battlefield and keep it in mind as you deal with the deeply disrespectful perversity of Dear Leader's fanboy douchebags.

Favreau is a former Obama speechwriter who apparently thinks he's Sam Seaborn.  And as for Murray, well...this probably won't come as a big surprise:

Naturally this nonsense quickly became the target of much mockery and derision:

But then Murray doubled down by actually defending his point:

And this is how we deal with bullshit like this...

Tuesday, January 28, 2014



On the nauseating spectacle that is the State of the Union address
The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live.
It's the most nauseating display in American public life — and I write that as someone who has just returned from a pornographers’ convention.
It's worse than the Oscars.
The national self-debasement begins well before the speech is under way. Members of Congress — supposedly free men and women serving as the elected representatives of the citizens of a self-governing republic — arrive hours early, camping out like spotty-faced adolescents waiting for Justin Bieber tickets, in the hope of staking out some prime center-aisle real estate that they might be seen on television, if only for a second or two, being greeted by the national pontifex maximus as he makes his stately procession into the chamber.

Islamist Attacks During Christian Church Services Kill at Least 99 Nigerians
Suspected Islamic extremists used explosives and heavy guns to attack a village and worshippers during a Christian church service in Nigeria's northeast, killing at least 99 people and razing hundreds of homes, officials and witnesses said Monday.
The attacks in Borno and Adamawa states resulted in one of the highest death tolls in recent attacks by militants who are defying an 8-month old military state of emergency in three states in northern Nigeria designed to halt an Islamic uprising there.
Attackers set off several explosions in Kawuri village in Borno state after launching their assault near the weekly market as vendors were packing up on Sunday night, the security official said.
He said 52 people died and the entire village was burned down, including 300 homes. He also said two improvised explosive devices thet were left behind went off Monday morning, narrowly missing security personnel who were collecting bodies in Kawuri. The official blamed suspected Boko Haram militants for the attack.
Also on Sunday, suspected militants in Adamawa state, south of Borno, stormed a church during a Sunday morning service in Wada Chakawa village. They fired guns, set off explosives and took residents hostage, said the Rev. Raymond Danbouye, a spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Yola. He said about two dozen people were killed and buried Monday.
Local Chairman Maina Ularamu said official recovered 45 bodies including those of two police officers. He urged calm, saying: "I believe security operatives are on top of the situation."
Suspected Boko Haram members set off explosives and fired into the church, then burned houses and took residents hostage during a five-hour siege, residents said.
"They used explosives during the attack on worshippers, and many people lost their lives," said villager Moses Apogu. Another resident said some people were taken away and later killed.

Marquette Poll: Scott Walker Pulls Away From Democrat Burke
Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker seems to be freezing out Democratic opponent Mary Burke with a 47 percent to 41 percent lead, says a Marquette Law School poll released Monday.
The same poll in October put Burke, a former executive for Trek Bicycles, in a dead heat with Walker, but the most recent survey of 802 registered voters, conducted Jan. 20-23, found that she still needs to warm up to voters. Seventy percent say they have not heard enough about her to have an opinion.
The poll also shows that 54 percent of respondents say the state is heading in the right direction, compared to 40 percent who don't think so.
Walker was elected governor in 2010. He faced a bitter recall effort in 2012 that captured national attention when he stripped collective bargaining rights from public unions, as a way, he said, to balance the state budget.
