Obama Skipping Tight Races

“President Obama will not be visiting at least four states with tight Senate races during the upcoming campaign season,” says Jodi Miller. “Which means the president will have to restrict his travel to the other 53 states." In this edition of NewsBusted, Miller also touches on race relations, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, NBC, CNN, Michelle Obama and Fidel Castro.

Paul Rodriguez KOs CNN

Steve Malzberg, host of Newsmax’s “Give Me 5,”  focuses on the immigration crisis on our southern border, where more than 50,000 children from Central America have spilled into our country, many of them sans parents. Malzberg says the media discourse on the issue took an unexpected turn when conservative comedian Paul Rodriguez frustrated CNN commentator Don Lemon. Lemon, who asked Rodriguez why our nation is so divided on the issue, was visibly stunned when he didn’t get the answer he expected. “I don’t think we are divided,” said Rodriguez, who is Mexican-American. “I think America has its heart in the right place. We need to be compassionate, we need to be strong and enforce our laws. It is precisely why we need to make it clear to these countries that regardless of the obvious trauma that they’re going through, we have to set laws and let them know that it’s not the land of milk and honey.” Listen to the conclusion as Lemon responds.

Crisis On the Border

Images are Solid Lead on Crash

The Chinese government released satellite images that appear to be wreckage from Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. The jumbo 777 vanished mysteriously on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers aboard. Chinese officials discovered the images–believed to be the best solid lead on the disappearance–a day following the mishap, but declined to elaborate why they held onto to them until midweek. CNN’s Tom Foreman gives a virtual explanation of how the images could very well be missing debris from the plane.

The Widening IRS Scandal

The IRS not only singled out grassroots Tea Party organizations, but also a wide swatch of conservative groups, including some with ties to Israel and others advocating the sanctity of the US Constitution. Perhaps instead of scrutinizing these groups, IRS agents should go back and re-read the Bill of Rights and Constitution. The specter of a federal agency running roughshod over American principles and laws is simply intolerable. Heads should roll at this all-powerful, but wantonly reckless agency. CNN reports

Al-Qaeda Linked to Benghazi

Several Yemeni men belonging to al-Qaeda took part in the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi last September, according to several sources who have spoken with CNN. One senior U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that “three or four members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,” or AQAP, took part in the attack.

Oh, Er, Islamic…Terrorists

CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday started to say that deceased Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev had posted “Islamic videos” online before apologizing and calling them “terrorist videos.” “We know that both the CIA and the FBI were told by Russia, their counterparts, ‘You got to look at this guy, we think he’s been radicalized. We think he’s a terrorist,'” the State of the Union host told panelists. “Then we have the fact that up came these, at some point after a trip to Russia and before it, up came Islamic videos — or, I’m sorry, terrorist videos on his website. … At least one department, Homeland Security I believe, knew he’d either come or gone to Russia. And he’s putting up, you know, in praise of terrorism. Why in the world didn’t anybody think, oh, wait, this is a danger sign?”

This Debate’s Gone to the Dogs

This just in…Former President George Bush’s dog Barney died last week. “Liberals say Barney would have been saved if Obamacare had been fully implemented,” says Jodi Miller. “However, some conservatives are blaming the Clintons.” In this edition of NewsBusted,  Miller also touches on Chuck Hagel’s disastrous Congressional hearing, Leon Panetta’s decision to allow women in combat, and RuPaul defeating CNN’s Piers Morgan in the TV rating battle.
