Mocked for Pushing Fake Story, Breitbrats Go Totally Ballistic

Desperately thrashing Breitbart
Wingnuts • Views: 19,496

The now thoroughly discredited hacks at breitbart.com are in a serious rage today, lashing out at everyone who mocked them over their “Friends of Hamas” fake story and posting at least nine articles so far today attacking Chuck Hagel even more rabidly than before.

The most ridiculous one of the bunch may be “editor” Joel Pollak’s pathetic, whiny complaint that the media aren’t pushing for Hagel to prove Breitbart’s fake claims wrong. Yes, that’s right — he actually expects the media to chase after the figments of his imagination: IN ‘FRIENDS OF HAMAS’ STORY, MEDIA FAIL TO PURSUE FULL DISCLOSURE FROM HAGEL!!!

Anyone remember the breitbarts calling for candidate Romney to release his tax returns in the name of “reasonable disclosure”?

Me either.

“address the substantive issues related to his associations.”

That’s a fair complaint, but I don’t see why Hagel’s time in the U.S. Senate as a member of the Republican Party should be held against him.

They have too much of their egos invested in their nonsense to ever back down. To admit they might be wrong would destroy them.

There were not one but two “FoH” stories that were built upon a mountain of crap. None actually contained any facts that definitively link Hagel to Hamas or a Friends of Hamas organization.

There’s no evidence FoH existed but there are indications that a NYDN reporter was the originator of the phrase as a means to get a source to look into whether Hagel had links to any kind of unsavory group - and that source never indicated that Hagel did.

Then, you’ve got Pollak, who claims a Harvard law degree, claiming that because Saad Hariri has links to the Atlantic Council and somewhere along the line said something positive about Hamas, that it conclusively proves that Hagel is a Hamas lover or should be disqualified.

Yet, buying into Pollak’s logic, you’d have to disqualify pretty much anyone who served in the US military, NATO, and dozens upon dozens of major corporations, because they were all sponsors of Atlantic Council - including News Corporation. When you cast a net as wide as Pollak does in order to catch Hagel supposedly doing something unsavory, you end up catching everyone - which is to say you haven’t caught anything. You’ve made a search so wide and vast as to be incapable of proving anything [fixed grammar].

But it does appear that Pollak learned one thing in law school; when the facts and law aren’t on your side - pound on the table and whine a lot in the hopes of winning over the jury. And he’s not even doing a good job at that.

Some of this is frankly common sense. Do they really think a group called “Friends of Hamas” would not raise eyebrows in this country especially if it had a prominent former US Senator as a member? The rage doesn’t help. Of course, in typical Breitbartian fashion, this is an excuse to continue to melt down.

Really, the silence from the GOP candidates when Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut or when Phil Gingrey apologized to Limbaugh when Obama was president elect when Gingrey had intially criticized Rush for being too hard on those who were conciliatory to Obama after his election should tell you all you need to know. Plus, conservatives when asked who the most influential conservative in the country is, the answer is not John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, or even Eric Cantor but Rush Limbaugh. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration if the Republican party didn’t enable Limbaugh but oh they do and they do it alot.

Congressman Says Americans Need Guns To Protect The Nation From Sharia Law

Appearing on The Voice of Freedom, Gohmert said he “hoped and prayed” that Congress rejects gun safety legislation, arguing that Americans may need to use the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to avoid succumbing to Muslims:

[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the founders’ quotes make that very very clear and including against a government that would run amuck. We’ve got some people who think Sharia Law should be the law of the land, forget the Constitution. But the guns are there… to make sure all of the rest of the Amendments are followed.

To say nothing about defending ourselves from those bastards who think the Bible should be the law of the land.

Gawker’s Max Read: ‘Friends of Hamas’ story proof that right wing lives in ‘complete bubble’

On Wednesday night’s edition of Current TV’s “The Young Turks,” host Cenk Uygur welcomed Gawker.com writer Max Read for a discussion about the right wing media frenzy sparked by the “Friends of Hamas” canard that nearly derailed the confirmation of Defense Secretary nominee Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE).

What began as an offhand joke by New York Daily News reporter Dan Friedman quickly escalated into a feeding frenzy in the hands of Breitbart.com editor Ben Shapiro.

Uygur pointed out that it wasn’t just conservative websites that ran with the story, but even Fox News took to the rumor, which was begun when Friedman asked an unnamed Senate staffer about the Hagel confirmation and was offhandedly making up the names of possible controversial groups that the senator could have ties to, like “Junior League of Hezbollah in France” he said, or “Friends of Hamas.”

Robertson Dismisses ‘Nutty,’ ‘True Believer’ Climate Scientists

Televangelist Pat Robertson has, like so many on the Right, turned very quickly from advocating awareness of climate change to denying that it exists at all. On today’s 700 Club, Robertson laughs off a recent Princeton University study that found that climate change is increasing the rate of blizzards while leading to a drop in total snowfall.

Without a hint of self-awareness, Robertson claims that climate scientists are simply elitist ideologues who will hold onto their beliefs in global warming no matter what.

“Only in Princeton would people say nutty things like that,” Robertson said. “You know, they get to be PhDs and they wonder where they’ve studied and learned all these things. But I tell you, if you’re a true believer bad things will happen because you see them coming.”

They are. And some are starting to admit it openly including a former candidate for President (and former US Senator):

National Review Blogger Calls for Repeal of Women’s Suffrage

Nevertheless, you’re on to something I’ve been advocating for years now. And that is the repeal of all four of the so-called “Progressive Era” amendments, including the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th, which were passed between 1911 and 1920.

The income-tax amendment was a self-evident attack on capitalism and led to the explosive growth of the federal government we currently enjoy today. (Without it, there’d be no need for a Balanced Budget Amendment.) Direct elections of senators has given us, among other wonders, the elevation of John F. Kerry to, now, secretary of state. Prohibition was directly responsible for the rise of organized crime and itsunholy alliance with the big-city Democratic machines. And women’s suffrage … well, let’s just observe that without it Barack Obama could never have become president. Time for the ladies to take one for the team.

GOP Senators Urge Obama To Drop Hagel Nomination

A group of Republican senators on Thursday sent President Obama a letter, urging him to withdraw the nomination of Chuck Hagel for defense secretary.

“It would be unprecedented for a Secretary of Defense to take office without the broad base of bipartisan support and confidence needed to serve effectively in this critical position,” the senators wrote. “Over the last half-century, no Secretary of Defense has been confirmed and taken office with more than three Senators voting against him. Further, in the history of this position, none has ever been confirmed with more than 11 opposing votes. The occupant of this critical office should be someone whose candidacy is neither controversial nor divisive.”

Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Roger Wicker (R-MS), David Vitter (R-LA), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dan Coats (R-IN), Ron Johnson (R - WI), Jim Risch (R-ID), John Barrasso (R-WY), Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Tim Scott (R-SC) signed the letter to the President.

Sen. Ernie Chambers (I) shut down the legislative process for hours on Wednesday with his filibuster of Christensen’s Legislative Bill 52, which allows inmates at the McCook Work Ethic Camp to provide labor for “any charitable, fraternal, or nonprofit corporation.”

During his hours-long filibuster, Chambers blasted former Republican Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, who recently resigned after a paper revealed that he had made thousands of phone calls to women who were not his wife. Chambers was also critical of the Nebraska attorney general because he let former Sen. Brenda Council (D) off with a misdemeanor after she gambled more than $63,000 in campaign funds at casinos.

“Sheehy and Council commit crimes but aren’t charged,” Chambers said, noting that “some scruffy person” would not be so lucky, according to the Nebraska Watchdog.

“Why shouldn’t Sheehy be sentenced to do some free labor?” he wondered. “It would teach him good work habits, and it would let him know that crime of any kind doesn’t pay.”

Chambers — who once sued God for causing “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like” — continued his filibuster by going after the hypocrisy of Republican Christians because they had “taken people’s wives” and “shiver of shivers, engaged in homosexuality.”

At one point, Chambers noted that Jesus “looked more like me than you all.”

The state senator observed that the Mafia had higher standards than the Catholic Church because if made men were “raping children, they’d off them.”

GOP Senators Urge Obama To Drop Hagel Nomination

Dear Senators,

Go eat a bag of dicks, you obstructionist partisan whores.

Thing the GOP would get farther if they’d just be outright honest and admit that they don’t think Obama won legitimately and so believe it leaves them in any position to make demands. Because based upon the evidence so far, they’re not going to be happy unless Obama nominates a Muslim-hating warhawk whose views are in direct contrast to his own.

re: #160 Charles Johnson

No, it is not dishonest. Grassley said, “The non-Indian doesn’t get a fair trial.” White men are “non-Indians.” Therefore they are included in the set that Grassley described.

It’s simple logic.

If anyone read the article and not the headline:

There is actually no requirement that juries reflect “society as a whole.” The Sixth Amendment requires juries to be drawn from the “State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed,” and Supreme Court decisions establish that criminal defendants also have a right to a jury which is “drawn from a fair cross section of the community,” where the trial court convenes to hear their case. But this does not entitle anyone to be tried by a jury that reflects the whole of American society.

A person who is tried in Vermont is likely to have an all-white jury because over 95 percent of Vermont is white. Similarly, a person who commits a crime in the Navajo Nation will face a jury of Native Americans because the population of the local community is made up of Navajo people. There is no reason to believe that Navajo jurors are any less impartial than white Vermonters, and Grassley is wrong to suggest otherwise.

168 Charles Johnson  Thu, Feb 21, 2013 12:09:07pm

And by the way, Grassley’s statement clearly indicates that he’s talking about a hypothetical white man who goes onto a reservation and rapes a Native American woman.

This what Grassley said “…you got to have a jury that is a reflection of society as a whole…”

Oh that would help. I think they only sense that they believe “he didn’t win legitimately” is that black people voted for him. That’s all I hear the base complain about, it’s racism that Black people didn’t vote for insulted-black-people-on-purpose Romney.

Yeah a guy like him and to some extent Christie are the ones who need to revive the GOP brand not guys like Jindal/Ryan/Rubio. The only reason why those three are seen as part of a GOP revival is because they’re young and don’t come from the patrician background that Romney/McCain/Bush did.

re: #168 Charles Johnson

Several years ago I did some work with an organization that helps the families of Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. There’s a freaking reason that the VAWA needs to include women on reservations. It’s pretty well known that if you are non native man that any crime you commit on a reservation makes it lots easier to get away with. Especially rape and sexual assault. The chances of these crimes happening to native women and girls is much higher than it is outside of the reservation system.

All this aside though, as a country we should be ashamed of the conditions in some of these places. The rates of teen suicide are horrendous, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse and unemployment are way above national averages (at least in the Dakotas). At Pine Ridge, there isn’t decent grocery store closer than Rapid City(3 hours away), but just outside of the reservation borders you can’t swing a dead chicken without hitting a liquor store. It’s one of the saddest things I’ve ever encountered.

German bishops approve use of emergency contraception in Catholic hospitals for rape victims

The German Catholic Church ruled Thursday that the use of the morning-after pill was acceptable in certain cases for rape victims.

The German Bishops’ Conference said in a press statement that rape victims treated in Catholic hospitals should “of course receive humane, medical, psychological and pastoral care.”

“The administration of a ‘morning-after pill’ can be part of this so long as it has a preventative and not an abortive effect,” added the bishops.

It seems small, but this is really a big break through in the bigger scheme.

“a jury of your peers”

this is of course from common law, a body of english law that grew up organically over the centuries after the norman invasion of normal normans

anyway, in the old days “your peers” meant other commoners if you were a commoner, and other aristos if you were a ‘person of quality’

in theory, in the united states of course we are all theoretically equal, so theoretically any group of americans is your peers

in practice, lawyers go to great lengths to get the kind of jury that they think will help them win the case

Well, it’s not what he said, but it’s included within it. If you think Native American juries can’t try non-Indians fairly, then you think that Native American juries can’t try white people fairly. So it’s still a true statement.
