    A House committee chairman says President-elect Donald Trump likes the idea of spinning off air traffic control operations from the government and placing them under the control of a private, non-profit corporation chartered by Congress. Rep. Bill Shuster, head of the House transportation committee, told The Associated Press that he spoke to Trump about the idea several times both before and during the presidential election. He said he believes the president-elect would be supportive, although details would have to be worked out. …
  • Tea party conservative to run as Democrat against Shuster [ Pennsylvania]

    08/04/2016 2:08:29 PM PDT · by george76 · 14 replies
    The conservative tea party challenger who was narrowly beaten in the Republican primary by U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster says he will run against the eight-term incumbent -- as a Democrat. Art Halvorson, a retired Coast Guard captain from Bedford County, received more than the 1,000 write-in votes in the Democratic primary. ... Halvorson has called Shuster too moderate, and the challenger touts himself as a tea party-backed conservative Christian. Shuster is the House Transportation Committee chairman and is Pennsylvania's highest-ranked member of Congress. He beat Halvorson in the 2014 Republican primary, but his second victory over Halvorson in April was...

    A Pennsylvania House candidate who lost the Republican primary has been presented with the unexpected possibility that he might compete in the general election — as a Democrat. An early tally of write-in votes on Tuesday put tea party-backed conservative Art Halvorson slightly ahead of Democrat Adam Sedlock in the Democratic primary...

    Washington, DC – House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) issued the following statement today after Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Michael Huerta announced that a five percent budget reduction due to sequestration would result in the furloughing of thousands of air traffic controllers and potentially disrupt the travel plans of the flying public: “The FAA’s management of sequestration is quickly going from bad to worse. Given that the FAA’s budget increased more than 100 percent over the last 15 years, finding five percent in savings shouldn’t need to significantly...

    Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake was wearing his usual liberal hat when he appeared on the Bill Press radio/Current TV show on Thursday. Guest host David Shuster asked him, "So regarding President Obama asserting executive privilege yesterday, condemning the use of executive privilege five years ago, how big of a political problem is this for him?" Blake stepped over Obama's inconsitency and dismissed the whole thing as buried in the weeds of "process arguments" the public will tune out (as if government agent Brian Terry's death from American firearms was merely a process argument?): BLAKE: Well, you know only...

    David Shuster is a Keith Olbermann wannabe who once profiled the Republican Party as ‘all white males with short haircuts.' He then went on to call the party angry and unhinged, with ‘no women, no minorities.' Shuster said the Tea Party health-care protest in Washington was an"orgy of bigotry, racism, antisemitism and hate." We David one thing you can't say about us is that we are as dumb as David Shuster. After all we didn't cut a pilot for a competing network without telling our boss who pulled us off the air on Friday and who has called us into...

    I could not believe my eyes. A member of the American media has broken ranks and is reporting the truth about MSNBC's prime-time clown. After years and years of glowing tributes and softball profiles, someone has dared to tell the real story of what has happened to Keith's "ratings juggernaut."Apparently, the tingle down the leg has subsided for at least one television writer. Take a look at Jeff Bercovici's piece over at AOL.

    Comedy gold. First we have David Shuster, the shill for all things liberal and scummy, inviting Andrew Breitbart onto MSNBC to discuss the O'Keefe story where Brietbart got Shuster to retract his allegations of wiretapping: [VIDEO AT SITE] As soon as Breitbart forced Shuster into a corner by reading Shusters's obviously biased tweets Shuster would not let Breitbart have any airtime, instead he continued to talk over him and lamely tried to change the subject. Andrew later re-printed the email Shuster sent to him alleging that he had "no horse in this race." An obvious lie based on his tweets....

    Today is the day that I have been invited to go on MSNBC for the very first time. At no point during the ACORN story was I put on the hot seat to defend the work of James O’Keefe. My thesis from day one has been that the mainstream media is biased in favor of the left and MSNBC is its most obvious case study. So when MSNBC led the charge on Tuesday against James O’Keefe when he and three others were arrested in New Orleans at Senator Landrieu’s office, it came as no surprise that the cable network seized...

    Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh hammering MSNBC's David Shuster as "one of the hapless, genuinely ignorant schlubs over at MSNBC." He did so for his attacks on the Bush Administration for releasing prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay who have now once again become Al-Qaeda operatives in Yemen. Limbaugh admitted that it is true that the Bush Administration did that. But he went on to say - "But Mr. Shuster, do you know why? Peole like you (Schuster)were demanding it - the ACLU and a bunch of lawyers." Rush is exactly right. The Left has been all for closing Gitmo...

    During the 3PM ET hour of live coverage on MSNBC, anchor David Shuster claimed that Fox News political analyst Brit Hume "denigrated Christianity" when suggesting that scandal-ridden golfer Tiger Woods convert to the faith. Shuster made the comments while discussing the issue with MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan, asking: "Doesn’t it also denigrate Christianity when you do that on a Sunday political talk show? This isn’t church, this isn’t some sort of holy setting, this is a political talk show....Doesn’t that minimize the significance of Christianity, when you bring a discussion of Christianity into a conversation about politics?" Buchanan replied:...

First, here is Rick Sanchez at CNN apologizing for using quotes against Limbaugh that he now admits he cannot independently confirm . . . MSNBC's David Shuster admitted on air today that they cannot verify the quotes they used either, be he did not apologize . ....
