  • Lester Holt Wore Earpiece in Contravention of Debate Rules

    OK, I know that the source is not held in high esteem by many (including myself) but I don't think that the clip from the raw pool feed of the pre-debate preparations lies. It shows the 'Moderator', Lester Holt, testing his earpiece, and it not working, leading to the receiver / battery pack being replaced by studio techs. THIS IS IN CONTRAVENTION OF THE WELL PUBLICIZED DEBATE RULES released last week. Lester Holt may have surpassed Candy Crowley for debate moderator malfeasance.

    MSNBC unveiled graphics on Monday of the respective “tasks” that presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton need to accomplish at their first debate, including that Trump needs to “stop lying.” MTV national correspondent Jamil Smith appeared on MSNBC to discuss what the candidates need to accomplish Monday night during the debate, and the left-leaning network provided visual displays of his takes. “First thing’s first, he needs to stop lying,” Smith said. “He needs to respect the intelligence of the American people.”

    “That ain’t no cop’s gun, Frank!” —DIRTY HARRY 2: MAGNUM FORCE, 1973. Does anybody really think the police are so stupid they would toss “a throw down, cold piece,” a planted gun, into a crime scene, knowing they are under video surveillance from multiple sources? And that the police never heard about pocket-lint being caught in a throw-down, “cold piece,” thereby ultimately incriminating the thrower?

    On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton‘s campaign manager Robby Mook had an epic meltdown as Joe Scarborough pushed Mook for refusing to respond to any questions regarding his boss’ policy on Syria. What are you here for?” Scarborough asked Mook. “We may be tip-toeing into Gary Johnson territory here if you don’t know the answer to that basic question, what is the response to Aleppo—then why do we have you here?” Mook nervously laughed and said they would have to ask Hillary Clinton herself. “I’m not being difficult here at all, these are basic questions,” said Scarborough.

    Since news broke on Saturday regarding a string of pipe and pressure cooker bombs being found in New Jersey and New York (with some going off), nearly everyone in the news and political world have been offering their unsolicited hot takes via Twitter on bombs, radical Islam, and terrorism. Perhaps the most egregious and mind-boggling was MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes, who ran into proverbial buzzsaw of outrage when he declared in a tweet that the people of the New York City metropolitan area were “very very lucky that the attackers tried to use explosive rather than guns.”

    Republican nominee Donald Trump called first presidential debate moderator, NBC News anchor Lester Holt, “a Democrat” Monday, despite public records that indicate otherwise. New York State voter registration documents show that Holt has been a registered Republican in the state since 2003. Trump’s comments to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, which were offered without any evidence to support the claim, are part of a time-honored tradition of alleging moderator bias and expectations-setting before a presidential debate. “By the way, Lester is a Democrat. It’s a phony system. They are all Democrats. It’s a very unfair system,” Trump said of the debate...

    "What is a leppo?" I’ve made no secret that I have a lot of sympathy for the strict constructionist leanings of many Libertarians. I would argue, much to the chagrin of social conservatives, that they’re right more often than they wrong. The problem is that they simply can’t get their act together as a party. Part of that is because a good chunk of them are really just closet Democrats trying to legalize weed, and part of it is because they don’t have the organization, money, and media clout to get over the metaphorical hump.

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who was swift to condemn Republican concerns of voter fraud, was equally as fast at accusing them of plotting to steal the election. Reid’s concern centered on a computer system called CrossCheck which was developed to find duplicate names on the voter rolls so they can be removed. But Reid and her guest Rolling Stone writer Greg Palast, who brought the issue to her attention, accuse the system of targeting minorities. “The system disproportionality targets voters of color who are likely to have common surnames, like Washington or Hernandez,” Reid stated.

A sense of gloom had descended upon the set of Morning Joe (or Mourning Joe) as Mika led off detailing the latest drip, drip, dripping of Hillary scandals.Then, Joe joined added to the mournful mood by noting how the polls have been tightening in recent days. This was all in stark contrast to the upbeat mood of just a few weeks...

    Ya don't say Hillary has a problem telling the truth. It’s just not something she does. There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of the biggest is that her whole career is predicated on 30 years of lying. Her life story is essentially one gigantic, tangled, web of falsehoods, half-truths, spin, and obfuscation. The thing is, when you’ve lived that way for so long, you can’t just stop. In order to push forward, you have to keep lying, and every new answer has to square with the previous set of fabrications. That’s a lot to keep straight,...

I want to listen to part of her speech with you and get your reaction. So here it is,” Witt said. Inexplicably, the KFC ad aired with the MSNBC graphics still...

I think that smear of Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we’re not going to continue with that line of...

Among the 25-54 age demographic, The Rachel Maddow Show nearly tied Kelly in total viewership Wednesday, with 400,000 viewers to Kelly’s 401,000. This is third time in the month of August where Maddow has either tied or surpassed Kelly among the 25-54 age bracket. The Fox News Channel show still overtook Maddow in overall viewers with 500,000, but according to Breitbart, the 25-54 demographic is particularly important because of its high value to advertisers....

Speaking of the shooting of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, and discussing the need for better police training, Todd said: “how do you train prejudice and hate out of somebody’s heart? That’s a tough thing.” Is there racism among police? Of course, as...

Saying his thoughts and prayers are with Zarqawi's family as they now have lost a loved one like his family did. No mention of the fact that Zarqawi killed his own son. Said there is no right to take a human life on this Earth...went on about an illegal war...Bush being a mass killer too...etc...blah blah. By the way..for those playing the home version of this game of insanity...

    Who’s even more powerful than the king? The person who gets to pick the king. And as of this morning that person is, quite possibly, FBI Director James Comey. Today’s Morning Joe reported breaking news from the New York Times: Attorney General Loretta Lynch has decided that she will accept the recommendation of the FBI regarding its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails.

    Do you think people should be allowed to carry guns in public? Yes! The Second Amendment guarantees it. No, it's too dangerous. Only for self defense.
