Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on June 30, 2013 by Allahpundit

You already know who this morning’s star guest is and why show producers are laying down drop cloths to catch in-studio slobber. Politico has Wendy Davis set to appear only on “This Week” and “Face the Nation,” but Zeke Miller of Time tweeted yesterday afternoon that she’ll be on “Meet the Press” too. Not sure why CNN didn’t also go ahead and book her; there can’t possibly be a saturation point among big media for hearing the left’s new hero explain why Rick Perry, who opposes killing healthy babies that are 20 weeks old, is the real monster in all this.

Elsewhere, McCain and Schumer will be on “Fox News Sunday” for some back-slapping and to threaten House Republicans with various forms of political doom if they don’t pass the Senate’s garbage bill. And Julian Assange will appear on “This Week” after Davis to remind us that Edward Snowden’s a secular saint and that the only government whose secrets are really worth exposing is America’s. Full line-up here.

MSM will love Davis because she is going to reinforce the progressive foothold in Texas and assist in a big way efforts to turn TX blue.

RoyalFlush on June 30, 2013 at 8:16 AM

Oh I see the FISC judges are a little upset about their “portrayal of collaboration” with the NSA and Executive Branch.

I feel really bad we may have hurt their feelings by drawing logical conclusions from evidence and the leaked IG report. Not.

Frankly, I believe Snowden should get the most severe punishment available for his treason- even if Obama is indifferent to what has been done. I also believe there is some significant good which has come out of parts of the NSA programs.

But I am sick of the hypocrisy from people in our unelected branch of government when the light of day is shone on actions they believe would never be exposed, and they then feign indignation then dissemble into self-righteous mumbling.

Think we’ll see them on the Sunday Shows…you know, rather than safely lobbing ass-covering statements to the Post?

On the plus side, with both abortions and gay marriage being a celebrated part of American life, and free government health care, food, shelter, cell phones, etc. for our ever-growing moocher class, we will at least get to experience the vibe of Sodom & Gomorrah before those cities were smited by the Almighty.

Wendy Davis…symbolic of the monsters, the real monsters, who live next door to us, across the street, share a cubicle or cut our hair, do our dry cleaning, teach our kids, coach our kids, even those who share a pew in church…monsters all…all those who support the eugenics of the racist Sanger, all who believe in mass killing on a scale now grander than Stalin, Mao, or that mustached guy from Braunau is some kind of “god” given Right…just to make it convenient for the “mom” to “not be punished” as our president has said, “with a baby.”

Chop ‘em up and suck them out…at 20 weeks and beyond…perfectly permissible, perfectly fine, perfectly hideous.

Wendy Davis, the new face of resident evil…

A few have said she is “good looking.”

Beauty, which Davis is possessed of not, is but skin deep…ugly, stupid and monstrous go all the way to the bone.

If Boehner had a spine (I know, I know)this is the strategy he should take, tell Reid that in order for the House to bring the immigration bill up for a vote, Ried has to first bring all the House bills that have passed up for a vote in the Senate. If he can get Reid to do that, then when Reid asks for the immigration bill to be brought up, tell him enforcement after the fact doesn’t work and for Harry to go pound sand.

Someone I know communicated this to a Republican Party person who called them a liar.

I wish it weren’t true..

Does Fox News Sunday or any other Sunday show have a research staff?

“Since when do Hispanics reward Republicans for legalising illegal aliens. They most certainly did not after the 1986 amnesty…

In 1980: Carter received 56% of the Hispanic vote while Reagan only got 37% — a difference of 19%.

In 1984: Mondale received 66% of the Hispanic vote while Reagan only got 34.82% — a difference of 31.18%.

In 1986: President Ronald Reagan signed The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 a/k/a Simpson-Mazzilo into law, which granted amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants, the vast majority of which were Hispanic.

In 1988: Michael Dukakis won 70.15% of the Hispanic vote while the Vice-President of the man who legalised millions of Hispanics, George H W Bush, received a mere 30.85% — a difference of 39.3%.

If Hispanics could be purchased with amnesty, then they would have overwhelmingly voted Republican in 1988. They didn’t so that should tell the “brains” in the GOP something.

Continuing on…

In 1992: Bill Clinton won 61% of the Hispanic vote while President George H.W. Bush won 25% – a difference of 36%.

In 1996: President Bill Clinton won 72% of the Hispanic vote while Senator Bob Dole received a mere 21% – a difference of 51%.

In 2000: Vice-President Al Gore won 62% of the Hispanic vote while George W Bush won only 35% – a difference of 27%.

In 2004: Senator John Kerry won 58% of the Hispanic vote while President George W Bush won 40% – a difference of 18%.

In 2008: Senator Barack Obama, who voted AGAINST President Bush’s immigration reform, won 67% of the Hispanic vote while Senator John McAmnesty won a mere 31% – a difference of 36%.

In 2012: President Barack Obama won 71% of the Hispanic vote while Mitt Romney won only 27% – a difference of 44%.

Right or wrong, the GOP will never, ever win a fight when it comes to regulating what a woman does with her body. I’m not saying it’s not worth a fight to stand for your beliefs, but all it ever ends up doing is empowering the Wendy Davis’ and Sandra Flukes, and the media, who will join in a frenzy to slam the party as heartless and cruel misogynists. They don’t care about baby killers, or 20 week old fetuses, that’s been proven again and again. If we really want less government, lets start with leaving women to make their own choices, good or bad, and stay out of it.

War on Womynz…

“COLUMBUS – Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way.

The Cleveland Democrat introduced Senate Bill 307 this week.

A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through measures such as House Bill 125, known as the “Heartbeat bill,” they should also be able to legislate men’s reproductive health. Ohio anti-abortion advocates say the two can’t be compared.

Heartbeat bill sponsor Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, R-Napoleon, said comparing his bill to Turner’s would be like comparing apples to bananas. The Heartbeat bill would prohibit abortion once a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

“I understand some women think my bill is a personal affront,” Wachtmann said. “Protecting the unborn — to compare this to Viagra is not even related….”

Under Senate Bill 307, men taking the drugs would continue to be tested for heart problems, receive counseling about possible side effects and receive information about “pursuing celibacy as a viable lifestyle choice.”

“Even the FDA recommends that doctors make sure that assessments are taken that target the nature of the symptoms, whether it’s physical or psychological,” Turner said. “I certainly want to stand up for men’s health and take this seriously and legislate it the same way mostly men say they want to legislate a woman’s womb.”

States passed a record 92 abortion-related bills in 2011, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that focuses on reproductive health. At the same time, fewer than one in four state legislators nationwide are women — they number 23 percent in Ohio — according to the National Conference of State Legislatures….”

I’m with you on early abortions, and a bonus is that its mostly liberal women reducing their own numbers with that method. However, currently it’s legal in TX to abort viable fetuses on demand, in the most gruesome fashion. It’s barbaric. In Western Euprope it’s resrticted to the first 3-4 months. And most Americans are in favor of banning elective abortions after 20 weeks too.

scalleywag on June 30, 2013 at 9:23 AM

Is David Gregory a journalist? As a thought experiment, name one piece of news he has broken, one beat he’s covered with distinction, and any memorable interviews he’s conducted that were not with John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Dick Durbin, or Chuck Schumer. Meet the Press has fallen behind CBS’s Face the Nation, much as Today has fallen to ABC’s Good Morning America, and my guess is that Gregory didn’t mean to sound like Joe McCarthy (with a splash of the oiliness of Roy Cohn) but was only playing the part to make some noise. In any case, his charge is preposterous. As a columnist who published Edward Snowden’s leaks, Greenwald was doing the job of a journalist — and the fact that he’s an “activist” journalist (i.e., an opinion journalist, like me and a zillion others) is irrelevant to that journalistic function. If Gregory had integrity and guts, he would have added that the journalist Barton Gellman of the Washington Post, who published the other set of Snowden leaks (and arguably more important ones), aided and abetted a crime. But it’s easier for Gregory to go after Greenwald, a self-professed outsider who is not likely to attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and works for a news organization based in London. Presumably if Gregory had been around 40 years ago, he also would have accused the Times of aiding and abetting the enemy when it published Daniel Ellsberg’s massive leak of the Pentagon Papers. In any case, Greenwald demolished Gregory on air and on Twitter (“Who needs the government to try to criminalize journalism when you have David Gregory to do it?”). The new, incoming leadership of NBC News has a golden opportunity to revamp Sunday morning chat by making a change at Meet the Press. I propose that Gregory be full-time on Today, where he can speak truth to power by grilling Paula Deen.

The government role is to protect the natural rights of people who live under its rule. Life is the most important right, because without it no other rights are available. Even murderers do not lose their lifes without a court of law and due process.

Why should the goverment force the woman to support a born baby, feed it etc?

Your whole premise is false. The woman’s body and her rights end after she gets pregnant. A “fetus” has a different genetic code, and is such NOT the woman’s body. It is just housed in the body. We also have the right to privacy and property rights. Our children are housed inside our property. Does that mean I have the right to kill them?

I hate having conversations about these matters with people who don’t even understand fundamentals.

Reversing Roe does not automatically outlaw abortion. It leaves it to the individual states to decide.

Viability keeps getting lower and lower. A baby has been born at 21 weeks and survivied. Why is it illegal to kill that baby three inches out of the canal, but not inside a woman’s body?

THe government regulates men on these matters as well. Never been in a family court of law where woman got pregnant and the man didn’t want the baby? Guess what the man has to support the child. And men get NO say in whether that child is killed in the womb.

They hate Perry so much that the Gawker and the Texas Observer dug up the old George Jones case. Years after Jones was executed, Scheck and company demanded a hair be dna tested the results being that it wasn’t the defendants but the victims. However, Jones was conviction was based on other evidence. Even some of the leftards at Gawker admitted the fact and that Jones was guilty. I’m sure this all ties into the abortion bill in TX.

You do know that the Democrats, anticipating that Obama would get clobbered in the 2012 election, said, “Let’s get these dumbbells talking about contraception and abortion. They’ll go for it, say stupid things, stop talking about the lousy job we’re doing, and flush their chances right down the toilet.”

SurferDoc on June 30, 2013 at 10:01 AM

melle1228 on June 30, 2013 at 9:47 AM

The Viagra bill was introduced in reaction to a tougher abortion regulation bill that was introduced in the legislature.

so it’s appropriate in terms of Moonbat tactics especially since Obama isn’t doing very well in Africa or the polls.

workingclass artist on June 30, 2013 at 10:02 AM

It should be noted that liberal induced narratives is an evolving process:

Remember how Global Warming just didn’t cut the mustard when scientific reports were coming out that he globe was actually cooling—-hence we got Climate Change.

As for the pro-abortion crowd, any one notice how the “women’s right to choose” has evolved into “a woman’s health issue”? You see, in the former narrative, choosing death, (legally expiring the life of a baby), wasn’t so appealing to the masses, so now it’s all about the “health of the mother”.

As for Mr. Snowden, the liberals have to be twisted into knots with their emotional hypocrisy—he’s a hero for exposing national secrets, yet their “other hero”, Mr. Obama is just protecting the nation under the program to spy on every American. Of course, we all know that if GW was in office when Snowden’s exposures were revealed, little Eddie would be in the stratosphere of liberal heroism, and they’d be calling for Bush’s impeachment.

Then there’s Mr. Obama’s “little dilemma” of playing down Snowden’s importance by claiming he’s not sending jets after a 29 year old HACKER. Meanwhile, the American Liberal media seem to be in lockstep with Greenwald’s narrative to elevate Snowden to a hero status, but can’t find it in his journalistic skills to connect the dots—NSA, IRS, DOJ—all under the direction and ultimate responsibility of President Obama.

All of this calls for a new liberal narrative for our President—protecting the nation falls under the category of a health issue. Now that the NSA program is in full exposure, from the government’s perspective, they should no longer need your health records thru ObamaCare, (via the IRS and 20 thousand new public union employees), the NSA has all of these capabilities and then some. Therefore, the NSA will evolve into the NSHA—the NATIONAL SECURITY & HEALTH AGENCY—because your government must “protect” your health.

Pass out the condoms and morning after pills. Who needs Wendy Davis?

Send it to McCain…they are his new BFF’s…apparently.

Mohammedans have killed thousands and thousands of non-Mohammedans over the past decade…and not just 9-11…entire towns laid waste…piles of Christian bodies left as kibble and bits for animals…churches, homes, schools burned, often while occupied within…

And this Administration? Our vaunted press?

Not a peep.

Might upset the narrative. Might offend CAIR. Might have some deputy to the various Yusuf Qaradawi’s of the world turn down a free lunch and tour of the White House…might make Obama look bad. The horror.

So, in this age of peace, love and understanding, tolerance by law or the sword…at home and abroad…being Christian takes on martyrdom, again, and again and again.

But, Christians are the bad guys in all of this?

They hate Rick Perry cause he enjoys pi$$ing liberal moonbats off.

The slip&fall Lawyers hate because of Tort Reform.

The Liberal economists hate him because Texas is doing very well economically through conservative governance.

The Liberal Secularists hate him because he’s too Christian, Pro-Israeli and supports traditional religions.

The Liberal Beta males hate him because he’s a cowboy & grew up on a ranch.

The liberal transplants hate him because he’s too native Texan…

It’s a long list.

It doesn’t change the fact that under his tenure as Governor…Texas since 2010, GDP has grown 71% faster then the nation under Obama’s presidency.

While the US rating is downgraded Texas is upgraded.

Even if you took Oil & Gas out of the economic picture Texas still surpasses economically, our #1 Welfare state California.

Speaking of “behavioral journalism”:

President Barack Obama told American reporters to “behave” during a joint press conference with President Jacob Zuma of South Africa on Saturday.

Obama was warning U.S. journalists not to ask too many questions in one, complaining that “my press” tried too squeeze “three or four or five questions in there,” complimenting Zuma on his more compliant media.

(The Associated Press noted that “both U.S. and South African reporters asked multi-part questions,” though seconded Obama’s description of U.S. journalists as “his press corps.”) LINK

Possession is 9/10ths of the law—and Obama’s layin’ it down bigtime!

So has anyone noticed that whenever the President gets bogged down with one of his many mistakes the Democrats and their propagandists in the Tool Media find a way to make the conversation all about …… ABORTION?

MTF on June 30, 2013 at 9:36 AM

Actually, you are right.

However, the Dems have lists of issues. Abortion is not even in our leader’s top five. Abortion is where he wants it.

Our POTUS really wants to improve the nation according to his version of what is needed. Unfortunately, the Dems can’t get the public support for issues they would prefer.

You guys can guess, I mean…. just check the noise.

1) Amnesty. (Dems never lose another election.)(But how do we destroy white, Christian America when they are so well armed and well off?)

2) Gun grabbing. (How do we destroy white, Christian America when they are so well armed and financed?)

3) Destruction of military. (How do we destroy white, Christian America when they are so well armed?)

4)Survival of GOP and death of Tea Party. (How do we destroy white, Christian America when they are so well armed and financed
without a party that couldn’t find its bottom with both hands and an instruction manual?)

Same sex marriage, abortion and the environment are secondary issues. You don’t knock down a NFL lineman by tossing gay porn at him and killing him by aborting his issue takes decades. The electric cars? Well, you can forget the dirty air fight since the crashed can jobs you are doing can come home to roost and fast.

IlikedAUH2O on June 30, 2013 at 10:22 AM

Liberals not happy with Chief Justice Roberts either…

“The answer was clearly yes, according to Justice Scalia’s majority opinion that built on decades of precedent on judicial deference to agencies. The chief justice’s dissenting opinion was a discordant screed that bemoaned the modern administrative state with its “hundreds of federal agencies poking into every nook and cranny of daily life.”

Congress can’t be trusted. The executive branch is out of control. What’s left?

The Supreme Court. There’s a comforting thought as we await Year 9 of the Roberts court….”

I don’t say it’s right for women to abort babies over 20 weeks, it sickens me, but what are you going to do, tell a woman that if she hasn’t made up her mind and done something before that it’s too late and she should be forced to have the child? Is that a government role?

scalleywag on June 30, 2013 at 9:23 AM

There has to be a limit otherwise they will push it and push it and push it until we have horrors even worse than Gosnell.

Something ain’t right about Benedict Roberts’ brain and if not vanity or cash then coercion by IRS / NSA / JustUs / Barky espionage findings isn’t that far-fetched an hypothesis.
