  • The left is now eating its own: MoveOn.org not happy ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare'

    American Thinker ^ | 11/20/2013 | Sally Zelikovsky
    MoveOn.org is not happy that ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare" so they are blaming their cronies in the "mainstream media" (yes, they actually use that term) for failing to present balanced coverage of ObamaCare's successes. [See their latest mass email below.] To combat this grave injustice, they are launching a campaign against the Democrat-Media Complex by flooding newsrooms and the internet with stories of the millions of Americans who have purportedly benefitted from ObamaCare. Anyone who has been paying attention for the last 5 years -- even a liberal -- knows that any claim that the press is slanted...

    A new anti-war ad by the left-wing advocacy group MoveOn.org highlights a growing foreign policy divide between President Barack Obama and the larger progressive movement that has long supported him. “We never set out to spend eight years at war in Iraq… Or to be mired down for more than a decade of fighting in Afghanistan… So what should America expect if we rush into Syria ­­alone, with no real plan for the consequences?,” says the video’s narrator. “We already know: It gets worse,” the narrator continues. “Congress: The majority of Americans OPPOSE missile strikes in Syria.” The video is...

    Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius stood shoulder-to-shoulder today to say the two countries are united in their belief that Syrian President Bashir al-Assad must be punished for unleashing chemical weapons on his own people. "This is our chance to join together and pursue accountability over appeasement. We in the United States know and our French partners know that this is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter," Kerry said. "What we are talking about is standing together and speaking with one voice in opposition to a clear violation of a red line...

    MoveOn.org email | Aug 11, 2012 | Justin Reuben
    Dear MoveOn member, Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide. Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1 Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic. But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the...

    The House on Thursday formally censured Rep. Charlie Rangel for financial misconduct despite pleas from the New York Democratic lawmaker and some of his colleagues for a less punishing reprimand. The House voted to censure Rangel 333-79. Rangel, who became the 23rd House member to be censured, appeared at the front of the chamber while Speaker Nancy Pelosi read the resolution.

    Dear MoveOn member, Republicans are on a rampage to repeal health care. And with so much misinformation out there, we need to fight back with the truth. So we've got an ambitious plan to go into Republican districts with ads that let voters know what the health care reform law means for their families and hit the Republicans for being against it. To make this work we're going to need to raise $200,000 this week— and that will take 3 donations from people in Livonia. Can you chip in $5? (link deleted) Our new ad campaign is one of the...

    Former Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) has been under investigation for allegations that he groped multiple male staffers working in his office, according to three sources familiar with the probe. The allegations surrounding the former lawmaker date back at least a year, and involve "a pattern of behavior and physical harassment," according to one source. The new claims of alleged groping contradict statements by Massa, who resigned his office on Monday after it became public that he was the subject of a House ethics committee investigation for possible harassment. Massa had said that the allegations were limited to his use of...

    Democrats must drop efforts to censure a GOP representative who shouted "You lie" during President Obama's speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday. Democratic leaders Thursday were looking into what formal action the House could take against Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., whose outburst during Obama's address on healthcare reform to a joint session of Congress the night before, shocked the chamber, The Hill reported. "It's time for us to talk about healthcare, not Joe Wilson," said Pelosi, D-Calif. One option Democrats considered was censure. Pelosi nixed censure, as well as a call for Wilson to apologize on the floor. "I'm...

    Dear MoveOn member, Right-wing mobs aren't just disrupting congressional town halls—their outlandish lies are now making their way into mainstream news coverage, too. We need to set the record straight. The majority of Americans support real health care reform. And no wonder, given the incredible cost of inaction. In Michigan alone, 620 people lose their coverage every day. And for those with insurance, yearly premiums will hit $22,579 in a few years if we don't act. We can't let right-wing extremists ruin the biggest opportunity in a generation to get real reform. Can you send a quick letter to the...

    (CNSNews.com) - Does any doting mother want to think about putting her firstborn baby in harm's way? Liberal backers of Sen. Barack Obama are banking on a "no" answer. The liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is running a political ad featuring a new mother, bouncing baby boy on her lap, chiding John McCain about wanting to wage a "hundred-year" war in Iraq. "John McCain, when you say you would stay in Iraq for a hundred years, were you counting on Alex? Because if you were, you can't have him," the mother (actress) says with a quaver in her voice.

    Washington, D.C. - "The storm over Sen.

"This unpleasant incident highlights the vast problem of sexual deviancy and that Americans have the right to expect moral sexual behavior from others, including U.S. senators. "In light of the accusations against him, Sen. Craig has been criticized for voting to protect Americans from being forced to accept abnormal sexual behaviors. The furor over the accusations against him reveals that Americans do not accept sexual deviancies, so...

DUmmie author, Senator, placed "Violence" in quotes since he means the DUmmies should get "violent" not in the physical sense (which would get him arrested for publicly advocating it) but in the ANNOYING sense. Yes, DUmmie "genius" Senator wants the DUmmies to act incredibly ANNOYING in order to draw attention to their lost cause of impeachment. Ironically, by following DUmmie Senator's RoadMap advice, they are just harming their dopey cause even more since such tactics would only...

    (CNSNews.com) - A liberal advocacy group that's made a name for itself by bashing President Bush is now paying for an effort to bash Fox News. "Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, Fox News Channel turns Republican talking points into news headlines," MoveOn.org says on its website -- as part of a promotion for a new film called "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism." "Outfoxed" was funded in part by MoveOn and another liberal group. The Fox News Channel markets itself as "fair and balanced," but "Outfoxed" director Robert Greenwald "exposes Fox for what it it: partisan spin,...

    BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Although the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org touts itself as a grassroots political group, records show that a sizable lump of money comes from just two donors. A review of the Berkeley-based group's first quarter fund raising showed nearly half its $6.98 million came from Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Corporation, a Cleveland insurance company, and billionaire philanthropist George Soros. Lewis has donated $2 million to the group and Soros has given more than $1 million, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday. The directors of MoveOn, which has pledged to "bring ordinary people back into politics," say...

But MoveOn.org and another group called Campaign for America's Future are not accepting Paige's apology.

In exchange, he would face life imprisonment and not be executed for war crimes, senior Iraqis attending a conference here on the future of the region have hinted. Saddam was captured, alive and well, on Saturday near his hometown of Tikrit. U.S. troops found him hiding in a subterranean hole. He did not resist. The Iraqi figures also said that, even...

Jeb Stuart Magruder, who was Nixon's assistant communications director before moving to the re-election committee, said he was privy to a telephone conversation between Nixon and John Mitchell, the campaign chairman, in which the president urged Mitchell to proceed with a break-in at the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate.

    After 15 years of saying they needed to find a liberal answer to me, the left has decided that they don't need talk radio because they "own" the Internet. Ronald Brownstein of the Los Angeles Times picks up this latest Democrat talking point in a piece headlined: "With Click of a Mouse, Liberals Find Answer to Limbaugh." Whenever one of these ideas germinates in the liberal wing of the party, it's all over the press. Liberals pass on whatever absurd talking point they hear without analyzing whether it's true or not; they don't think for themselves. Brownstein distorts the tiny...

    Rush Limbaugh Radio Program ^ | July 7, 2003 | Rush Limbaugh
    Did anyone else here happen to hear Rush mention Free Republic around 1:20 PM Eastern time? I was taping his program, but the tape ran out just as he mentioned us. To the best of my ability, I'll try to remember how he led into it: In the context of telling everyone to quit worrying about moveon.org, and the influence they have with people, he said that if you want to see what REAL influence is, just let Drudge turn his site over to activism and you will see "REAL influence". He said that if he decided to have another...

    N A T I O N How Dean Is Winning The Web The Democrat's ability to win fans and raise cash online has taken his party by surprise By CHRIS TAYLOR/SAN RAFAEL Monday, Jul. 14, 2003 Howard Dean is hardly what you would call a high-tech guru. The former Vermont Governor, whose trademark look is a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves, is a mostly gadget-free zone. He does not carry a BlackBerry email pager or tablet PC (he leaves those to his aides). And don't expect to find Dean, 54, surfing the Web for hours at home. "I kind of...

    Impeachment: "Be prepared" is good advice for the Bush White House By Paul M. Weyrich web posted June 23, 2003 The late John Connally, former Governor of Texas, and Secretary of the Treasury in the Nixon Administration, told me a story back in 1975 when I was a guest at his ranch. The governor had been indicted and, although later vindicated, he was fixated on the question of who was responsible for his indictment. He related to me an episode that he was convinced lay at the heart of his indictment. He said that one day he had been asked...

    C-SPAN | June 26, 2003 | Jim McDermott
    The debate is one of the nastiest I've seen on the floor of the House of all time--Nancy Johnson (R-CT) seems to be taking the brunt of the vicious attacks (and I do mean vicious) from the Democrats. Jim McDermott (D-WA) just said the Republicans can't be trusted on prescription drugs because WMD have not been found in Iraq (he mistakenly said "Iran" first, at which time the Republican members took the opportunity to laugh hysterically at him). Called Bush a liar, at which time the Chair ordered him to sit down. Billy Tauzin (R) followed up by saying "It...

    There was always something quaintly old-fashioned about the way Americans embarked on the long process of choosing their next president: the town hall meetings, the closed-door caucus, the chase for state party delegates. Now, with nine Democrats vying for the job of challenging George Bush in November 2004, the process has been brought bang up to date with the arrival of a potentially revolutionary new tool: the online primary. Yesterday was the second of two days of voting at a political website of growing prominence called MoveOn.org. Proclaiming itself as a new model for grassroots activism - which is to...

  • Internet Presidential Primary Is a Modern Process With Traditional Allegations of Vote-Rigging

    WASHINGTON (AP) - More than a million Internet users will be invited to vote in a virtual Democratic primary next week, but this most modern of elections is facing age-old allegations of vote-rigging. Howard Dean, who has built an extensive network of Internet-savvy supporters, is expected to get the most votes in the MoveOn.org primary. Organizers of the site say any advantage for the former Vermont governor is due to his appeal among their members, and not any misdeeds in their process or because one of their employees worked on his campaign. The primary begins Tuesday and voting runs for...
