I don’t care what you call this show as long as you keep doing it! I love it!

So Ed has competition now? Hmm…..

What’s the name? I liked the idea of MK-KM or something with your names.

HMMMM…. about that film that has the muzzies panties in a bunch.

Just WTH is going on here?

Only the terrorists hate bacon.

Hot Con-skirts talking about ‘cured meats’… doesn’t get any better.

“We will be here doing it.”

But what exactly are you doing?

Tennman on September 12, 2012 at 6:13 PM

And yet.. the irony is inescapable.

WashingtonsWake on September 12, 2012 at 6:13 PM

The movie may have been the excuse to assemble, but 9/11 was probably the real motivator. Reliving old “victories.”

Wheres the Erika channel?

meci on September 12, 2012 at 6:21 PM

Are you going to discuss the difference between dragging and manhandling our Ambassador’s body through the street and contrast that with President Obama’s assertion that some innocent civilians delivered him gently to the hospital?

Tennman on September 12, 2012 at 6:23 PM

“…abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others”

=/=

“…abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the feelings of those holding opposing religious beliefs of others.

How does watching a moooovie hurt your beliefs?

I was shocked to find we already had an embassy up and running in Libya.

Fallon on September 12, 2012 at 6:25 PM

Why are you chasing the movie squirrel?

CNN has been reporting that this was a terror attack preplanned by AQ in response to Obama’s drone attacks.

Sebelius violated Hatch Act and may be fired, Obama administration lawyers find

President Barack Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said Wednesday.

Sebelius violated the law, the office said, when she publicly endorsed President Barack Obama’s re-election during a taxpayer-funded public event on Feb. 25, 2012.

Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner wrote to Obama that the OSC found Sebelius “violated the Hatch Act by making extemporaneous political remarks in a speech delivered in her official capacity” on Feb. 25.

“The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election,” Lerner wrote to the president. “A federal employee is permitted to make partisan remarks when speaking in their personal capacity, but not when using an official title or when speaking about agency business.”

“Secretary Sebelius and the Department of Health and Human Services reimbursed the U.S. government for all costs and expenses associated with her travel to the February 25, 2012, event,” Lerner continued. “HHS subsequently reclassified the trip from official to political and issued a statement to that effect. OSC found no evidence that Secretary Sebelius made any other political statements in her official capacity.”

The Federal Times suggests that Sebelius may be fired for her illegal activity. “The finding could possibly cost Sebelius her job,” the outlet reported. “Although OSC did not recommend any specific punishment, and said Obama will decide how to punish her, Hatch Act violators are usually fired.”

What if you call the show “Kel&Kat’s Chats”? Quick and cheesy cause it rhymes!

HAExpert on September 12, 2012 at 6:34 PM

When Romney says obvious and sensible things, it’s a gaffe. And when Obama gives us meaningless platitudes, it’s reported as serious and statesmanlike.

RBMN on September 12, 2012 at 6:36 PM

Questions about Romney are at Obama’s pay grade.
Questions about American foreign affairs are above Obama’s pay grade.
Maybe someone should as one of the Clintons.

Mormon uprising?

Axe on September 12, 2012 at 6:42 PM

The Spectre should have been rallied for crowd control.

Mormon uprising?

Axe on September 12, 2012 at 6:42 PM

And when there was a Mormon uprising over Broadway’s “Book of Mormon,” would it automatically become the musical’s fault? No? Only for Muslims?

Oh, trust me, I’m gonna try to get her on the air, but she’s a tad shy.

Mary Katharine Ham on September 12, 2012 at 6:51 PM

GREAT . . . . . how can I watch this and The Blaze at the same time?

BTW, The Blaze has been picked up by Dish Network, now.

Channel 212, where I’m at, but should be the same everywhere for Dish Network.

listens2glenn on September 12, 2012 at 6:52 PM

People, people … Please!

Do we have enough “narrative” in this thread? Do we we have enough “MSM”? Do we have any smiley faces? Hell, no. We don’t.

What’s wrong with us? Let’s get all the fat white people out on November 6 to out-re-vote this Kenyan Marxist, Socialist, Nazi, Stalinist-Hawaian-Leftist.

We need more “narrative” and more “MSN”. We need more mentions of 0bama, because that’s worked so well for the fat not-too-bright-fat-people in the past. Let’s beat the Kenyan, my fellow fat Americans. After you’ve finished that pizza with the stuffed crust in front of O’Reilly, are you with me on this?

In your show you wondered about the timing of the film protests…..

Bacile posted a 13-minute English-language trailer on YouTube in early July but it was only in the past week that it appears to have caught on of the online sectarian culture wars.

A Florida pastor, Terry Jones, who had triggered protests in the Islamic world for burning the Qur’an and his campaign to stop the construction of a mosque at the site of the 9/11 attacks, promoted the film on his website and announced his intention to broadcast the trailer at his Gainesville church this week.

The film clip was also promoted last week by Morris Sadik, the Egyptian Coptic Christian also based in California, who runs a small, virulently Islamophobic group called the National American Coptic Assembly. It was later denounced by mainstream Copts in Egypt, but it was too late to stop it going viral.

At some point over the summer, a version of the YouTube trailer surfaced with the dialogue dubbed in Egyptian Arabic and the translated clip was picked up by a firebrand Cairo television host, Sheikh Khaled Abdallah, with a record of focusing on perceived threats to Islam. He aired clips from the video on his television show on Saturday, and the same video clips were posted to YouTube on Monday.

As the audience for Innocence of Muslims grew exponentially, militant Islamists called for a mass protest at the US embassy in Cairo. The organisers said they began planning it last week when Sadik began promoting the trailers, but support for the demonstration snowballed after the Sheikh Abdallah programme.

A crowd of some 2,000 is reported to have gathered outside the embassy walls in Cairo on Tuesday. The security services appear to have been caught flat-footed even though the protest had been announced. Most of the diplomats and local staff had left early and a few dozen of the demonstrators were able to scale a wall, take down the stars and stripes and replace it with a black flag. The Egyptian police only managed to evict them in the late evening.

By that time, however, the spark had jumped westwards to the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi. According to al-Jazeera, an extremist militia called Ansar al-Sharia, one of many such armed groups staking out fiefdoms in Libya in the aftermath of Muammar Gaddafi’s fall, heard about the storming of the Cairo embassy and the American film.

Stevens had the misfortune to be making a short visit to Benghazi, and, according to US officials quoted on Wednesday, was probably not the intended target.
