    President Barack Obama met with several MSNBC hosts this afternoon at the White House to discuss tax rates, according to Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery. The reporter wondered if an "MSNBC love fest" was going on at the White House. Here's Bendery's reporting, in a series of tweets: Just passed Al Sharpton walking into the WH. — jennifer bendery (@jbendery) December 4, 2012 Also, Al Sharpton is so unbelievably tiny now. I actually gasped when I saw him pass by just now. Hope he's ok. — jennifer bendery (@jbendery) December 4, 2012 Rachel Maddow is now in the West Wing....

    With race relation issues in Sanford, there's been a secret peacemaker visiting the city. For the first time, the a Sanford project manager is speaking out about it. When George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin back in February, it sparked plenty of protests, exposing a problem with race relations in the City of Sanford. "They're not going to go away, so it's not time to be the ostrich in the sand," says Sanford Senior Project Manager Andrew Thomas. Among all the commotion, there were peacemakers in the crowd, and at least one continues to keep coming back. Thomas says...

    President Barack Obama is expected to announce his nominees for secretaries of state and defense in the next two weeks, with former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel on the short list of potential choices to head the Pentagon, senior administration officials said on Tuesday. Hagel, whose appointment would give Obama's reshuffled second-term Cabinet a bipartisan cast, met the Democratic president at the White House this week to discuss a post on his national security team. But there was no sign that Obama had decided on any of the key nominations he will put forth. … Other top contenders to replace Defense...

    The Eighties action flick Red Dawn has been redone. It’s preposterous that Soviet Russia’s dilapidated economy, let alone North Korea in the remake, could marshal sufficient logistical capacity to project more than a token force across an ocean. Given the Communist Party USA’s ecstatic response to Barrack Obama’s re-election, Democrats may be succeeding where the Red Army dared not tread. CPUSA’s Sam Webb gloats, “The Communist Party said a year ago that the 2012 elections would be the main front of the class and democratic struggle, and subsequent events have confirmed that fact...

    Susan Rice is not the best choice to lead State DepartmentAmbassador to the United Nations Susan Rice’s deceptive Benghazi spin ought to be enough to sink her bid for promotion. Mrs. Rice’s infamous talking points insisted that a YouTube video, rather than preplanned terrorism, prompted the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Yet there’s plenty more in her past that calls into question her fitness as a potential replacement for Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state. Mrs. Rice made the rounds on Capitol Hill last week in an attempt to round up support. She met...
  • Investors 'Should Get Used to 1-2% Growth': Pimco's Gross

    Investors should get used to one to two percent economic growth for the foreseeable future, Pimco's Bill Gross told CNBC's "Street Signs" on Tuesday. "We think that the United States is in a one to two percent growth environment going forward and investors should get used to it" as structural challenges keep growth in check, the Pimco co-founder and co-chief investment officer said. Earlier Tuesday, Gross released his final investment letter for 2012, where he continued to warn about slower economic growth due to ongoing structural challenges such as high debt levels, a slower growing China and an aging workforce.

    This election season brought out some of the more bizarre behavior we’ve seen from corporations across the country. Having unlimited access to candidates through unlimited campaign contributions wasn’t enough. Some CEO types got on bully pulpits to blast the president and his health care plan before the election. Some of that rhetoric was over the top. Some of it could have been illegal. Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter warned that he would raise his pizza prices from 15 cents to 20 cents per order to pay for Obamacare, which could bring the third largest pizza delivery operation in the U.S....

    (CNSNews.com) -- The U.S Board of Immigration Appeals has agreed to reopen the immigration case of Onyango Obama, delaying the deportation of the 68-year old Kenyan who violated an order to leave the United States in 1992. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to CNSNews.com on Tuesday that Obama, who is the president’s uncle, was granted a rehearing last week and his case is being re-opened. “The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) remanded the case back to Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) for reconsideration. It is inappropriate for ICE to offer any further comment on this case,” Brian...

    Mohamed Lotfy@mlotfyamnesty Important question, are the police & army genuinely loyal to president or would they let him down at the first opportunity? #Egypt #Morsi 4 Dec 12 Reply Retweet Favorite Good question. Somebody loyal to President Mohamed Morsi is reportedly shooting tear gas at protesters from the Presidential Palace. On the other hand, according to unconfirmed reports from numerous Twitter users, some Egyptian riot police sympathize with the protesters. This Tweeter says some Egyptian police took off their uniforms, left them in a heap on the ground, and joined forces with the anti-Morsi protesters: Ashour@mhmmdashour Police get rid of...

    Daily Caller ^ | 11/28/12 | Daily Caller News Foundation
    Nearly 6 in 10 young voters support bigger government — a worrisome statistic for conservatives who want to increase their presence on college campuses and among the under-30 crowd. According to the Pew Research Center, 59 percent of young voters think the government should do more — something only 44 percent of all voters support. On government-run healthcare, the most popular policy preference among young voters was to expand it. Young voters were also far more likely to identify as liberals and members of the Democratic Party than older generations. For young conservative activists, making inroads on college campuses will...

    gyptian President Mohamed Morsi left the presidential palace in Cairo on Tuesday, two sources reported, after protesters angered by his decree last month to extend his powers clashed with police outside. "The president left the palace," a presidential source, who declined to be named, told Reuters. A security source at the presidency also said the president had left the building. Some protesters broke through lines of police who were protecting the palace and demonstrated at the palace walls.

    US President Barack Obama has said in an interview that he would consider lowering top tax rates as part of a wider reform of the tax code in 2013. The White House also signalled that it might agree to increase taxes for the wealthiest earners to less than 39.6%. Spokesman Jay Carney left open the option that rates would not have to rise to that Clinton-era level. Lawmakers are deadlocked in efforts to avert steep spending cuts and tax rises due to take effect on 1 January. Mr Carney said the "major obstacle" in reaching an agreement was a Republican...

    Arguments that appeal to reason rarely appeal to emotion. Nor do they appeal to uninformed voters who are not interested. Can we have better informed and more rational voters? Democrats realize that rational thought does not appeal to many voters and Republicans have yet to understand that emotional appeals beat rational appeals. Even when they try emotional appeals they rarely work because they don't do a good job of it; their efforts are quickly and effectively shoved aside. On Sunday, I received an appeal from Stephanie Cutter of the Obama-Biden campaign. Here's the gist of it: Friend -- I hope...

    WASHINGTON – Getting Republicans to agree to a tax increase on “the rich” is not the ultimate aim of the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress, says noted tax activist Grover Norquist. “This is just the first act of a two- or three-act play,” Norquist said in an exclusive interview with WND. Norquist, president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform, said the first act “is to get congressional Republicans to put their fingerprints on what amounts to a minor tax increase.” “After raising taxes on the rich a little bit, the Democrats will come back for serious tax revenue,”...

    Americans for Tax Reform chief Grover Norquist joined Alex Wagner on MSNBC’s NOW to discuss the current status of negotiations between President Barack Obama and Congressional Republicans to avoid the upcoming fiscal cliff. Norquist told the MSNBC host that he thinks President Obama is overplaying his hand in these negotiations, as he did in his first term, and Obama will cede the political advantage to Republicans because he “doesn’t have the mandate he thinks he does.” Wagner asked Norquist if he supported the plan put forward by Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Norquist replied that Boehner’s plan is “amorphous,” and said...

    This will surprise few readers: A group of House Democrats has formed its own “Gang of Six” to push for progressive tax reform — in which the expiration of the Bush-era tax rates for the wealthiest Americans is “just the beginning.” This is the platform of a group of "progressives" in Congress. “In response to the call for progressives to draw a red line in the fiscal cliff sand, here is our big picture stance on corporate and individual tax reform,” Rep. Michael Honda (D-Calif.) said in a statement. “Six progressive tax principles from a new Gang of Six. The...

    Conservatives seem to be nonplussed about President Obama sending Treasury Secretary Geithner to Capitol Hill without a proposal for a grand bargain on entitlements. But why? Worrying about debt and default and entitlements is for the responsible people. Responsibility is for the people who believe in the "responsible self," the notion developed a couple of millennia ago during the Axial Age. Responsibility is for the bourgeoisie. President Obama is above all that. Liberal politics in general is above all that. Their politics is about war, not about nice comfortable entitlements. President Obama's War? He's fighting a war on "inequality." Even...
