Iowa Taking ‘Anonymous’ Threat To Shut Down Caucus ‘Very Seriously’
Post Date: 2011-11-08 11:23:54 by Brian S
0 Comments
Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) said Monday that state and federal authorities were taking threats by the hacktivist group “Anonymous” to occupy the Iowa caucuses “very seriously.” The loose-knit group rose to prominence after it launched retaliatory attacks on companies that ceased to do business with WikiLeaks. “This has never happened before,” Branstad told reporters, according to the Des Moines Register. “We’ve never had this kind of threat made to our open process of giving people an opportunity to participate and we want to do all we can to protect people’s right to participate in this system.” A video uploaded to YouTube in the name ...

NBC Poll: Despite National Pessimism, Obama Tops GOP Foes
Post Date: 2011-11-07 19:36:14 by Brian S

WASHINGTON — One year out before President Barack Obama faces voters in his bid for re-election, he encounters an American public that remains deeply pessimistic about the state of the country and its economy, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Nearly three-quarters of respondents believe the nation is headed in the wrong direction; just 25 percent think the U.S. economy will improve in the next 12 months; and a solid majority says the country is experiencing the start of a long-term decline. Those attitudes have helped shape their opinions of the president, with majorities disapproving of his overall job performance and his economic handling, and with nearly 75 ...

Three’s A Trend: Polls Show Voters Believe GOP Intentionally Stalling Economic Recovery

Brian Beutler November 7, 2011, 1:28 PM President Obama and the Democrats have succeeded at convincing voters that Republicans are trying to delay economic recovery, according to a series of recent polls. The new data suggests that about half the country, including a majority of self-identified independents, believe that congressional Republicans are using their political power to thwart Obama’s efforts to reduce unemployment, presenting Democrats an opportunity to make this argument more explicitly as the 2012 campaign moves forward — to undercut Republicans’ claims that Obama and the Dems bear full responsibility for the economy, and to make their pattern of ...

Occupy Movement Reaches Tiny Rural Communities

The protest movement which began in New York with Occupy Wall Street and has since spread out to most of the nation’s large cities is now trickling down into tiny rural towns like Mosier, Oregon. As described by occupywallst.org, “There are no stoplights, the only gas station closed years ago and there is not a single multinational corporation within five miles. With a population of just 430, Mosier, Oregon will become the smallest U.S. town to have an active Occupy camp. Participants from Mosier and other small communities of the Columbia Gorge are working to highlight their vision for a family-friendly camp that includes music, movies and round-table discussions with the ...

A commercial promoting the Occupy Wall Street movement has been running on mainstream TV stations this weekend. The 30-second ad, which was filmed a month ago but is only now gaining wide exposure, is not intended to sell anything or to solicit donations but to improve the image of the movement. It shows a variety of cleancut, sincere occupiers, ranging from students to a man in a business suit and a worker in a hard hat, proclaiiming their desire for peace, democracy, and economic justice. According to MSNBC, the ad is currently running on Bloomberg News, ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox News, and other networks. It was produced by filmmaker David Sauvage and funded by donations. ...

November 7, 2011, 7:35 a.m. A fourth woman accusing Herman Cain of sexual harassment during his time at the National Restaurant Assn. plans to go public with her allegations at a news conference Monday in New York. The woman is represented by powerhouse Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred. Allred had a similar news conference earlier this year on behalf of one of the women who was enmeshed in the Twitter scandal that brought down New York Rep. Anthony Weiner. Allred’s office said the woman “is not one of the three women who have previously been reported to have alleged sexual harassment by the Republican presidential candidate ” and that she will be “the first to ...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Allegations that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain sexually harassed women in the 1990s have begun to damage his bid for the White House, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found. The poll showed the percentage of Republicans who view Cain favorably dropped 9 percentage points, to 57 percent from 66 percent a week ago. Among all registered voters, Cain's favorability declined 5 percentage points, to 32 percent from 37 percent. The survey represents the first evidence that sexual harassment claims dating from Cain's time as head of the National Restaurant Association have taken a toll on his presidential campaign. A majority of respondents, 53 percent, ...

Ron Paul: I Oppose 'In God We Trust' Bill

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Thursday he opposes the Republican measure that seeks to reaffirms the country's "In God We Trust" motto. The resolution overwhelmingly passed the House on Wednesday, attracting only nine "no" votes. Paul, who is running for president, missed the vote. Paul said he didn't think the resolution was necessary, saying he wouldn't have brought it up. "I would have voted 'no' not because I don't like the motto and don't think we can use it but 'no' because we were telling the states what to do," Paul told The Hill. The GOP measure stands behind the national motto, which is used in public schools, ...

Ron Paul: Drone Attacks Are Reason 'People Of Pakistan Can't Stand Our Guts'

GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul said Sunday that the U.S. military is inciting a civil war in Pakistan. The Texas Republican said the civilian casualties resulting from the Pentagon's drone attacks over Pakistan and other countries only create more enemies at the expense of homeland security. "Sometimes they miss and sometimes there's collateral damage. And every time we do that, we develop more enemies," Paul said on Fox News Sunday. "We're dropping a lot of drone missile/bombs in Pakistan and claim we've killed so many, but how about the innocent people [who have] died? Nobody hears about that. This is why the people of Pakistan can't stand our guts ...

At least one Republican presidential candidate says he will be “reluctant” support his party’s eventual nominee. On Sunday, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) told Fox News host Chris Wallace that if he loses, he will “probably not” endorse another any of the other candidates. “Can you state flatly that you will support the Republican nominee in the off chance that it isn’t Ron Paul?” Wallace asked the candidate. “Probably not, unless I get to talk to them and find out what they really believe in,” Paul admitted. “But if they believe in expanding the wars, if they don’t believe in looking at the Federal Reserve, if they don’t believe in ...

Herman Cain flunks foreign policy

It can be argued that domestic affairs are a president's top priority, but the Constitution expressly puts the chief executive in charge of setting and conducting foreign affairs. It is therefore essential to know if the candidate who wants to be president has a reasonable knowledge of events around the world. On Tuesday evening I watched an edition of Fox News Bret Beir's Special Report where Herman Cain was "center chair" as the usual members of the panel got a chance to quiz him and, after he attempted to dispose of the charges of sexual harassment unleashed against him, syndicated columnist, Charles Krauthammer asked a question that dealt with foreign policy.

Bill Kristol Concedes 2012 Presidential Race To Democrats

In a column at the Weekly Standard website, former New York Times columnist Bill Kristol opines that “assuming that presidential field remains as it is” for the GOP, “2012 won’t be a repeat of 1980". He is referring to the election of Ronald Reagan after Jimmy Carter’s single term in the White House. The column itself is a semi-rhapsodic invocation of what is apparently to Kristol a sacred date, “November 4, 1980, the instant when we knew Ronald Reagan, the man who gave the speech in the lost cause of 1964, leader of the movement since 1966, derided by liberal elites and despised by the Republican establishment, the moment when we knew—he’d won, ...

The Myth of Saint Ronald

If it is true that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce, the unveiling of a statue of Ronald Reagan at, of all places, a national airport surely falls in the latter category. The irony of creating a paean to a man who destroyed the nation's air traffic controller's union at an airport would be rich were the airport itself not renamed for him already. The right has created a highly successful messaging movement (it's what they do best) to ensure Ronald Wilson Reagan's legacy as a tax cutting, bureaucracy hating, Commie defeating cowboy hero who single handedly revived our economy, restored Americans' pride and beat the Russians. Indeed, there is a ...

Leaving 'Fascist America', Ventura Off To Mexico; ""I will never stand for a national anthem again..."

ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is so upset by the dismissal of his airport security lawsuit that he threatened Friday to apply for dual citizenship so he can spend more time in his beloved Mexico — or run for president of what he labeled "the Fascist States of America." Ventura, also a former wrestling star, sued the U.S. government in January, alleging that airport scans and pat-downs amounted to unreasonable search and seizure. A district judge threw out his lawsuit Thursday, ruling it should have been filed in a Circuit Court of Appeals. Ventura has said a titanium hip implanted in him in 2008 sets off metal detectors and that agents ...

Politico co-founder Roger Simon on Thursday warned that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain might be sorry if he sued the publication over recent reporting about sexual harassment allegations against the candidate. Appearing on Fox News earlier this week, conservative business mogul Donald Trump had suggested that Cain should bring lawsuits against against his accusers if they tried to speak out. “I think Herman should take very, very strong action, even if he has to bring a major lawsuit against the women,” Trump told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren. In fact, a lawyer for one of the women has asked the National Restaurant Association to release his client from the ...

WASHINGTON – Friday night, armed with popcorn, lemonade and serious signage, a few hundred activists gathered at 1075 7th Street NW to protest billionaire GOP backers the Koch Brothers as they graced the Americans for Prosperity-sponsored Defending the American Dream Conference. But this time, they were determined to do it with style. In addition to the protest signs, catchy slogans and noise-making to disrupt the conference, the organizers flipped the script by providing a community party space. As mid-tempo house music, reggae and hip-hop blasted from speakers in a small parking lot off of L Street NW, activists sampled wares from local vendors and watched a projector flash images of ...

As he appeared on stage Friday before a gathering of conservative activists, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain gave no indication that he was discouraged after a turbulent week marked by allegations that he had sexually harassed former employees. Cain opened his speech with an obvious jab at President Obama, and at rival Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who had delivered his own speech just moments before. “Before I get started, I want to know, whose teleprompters are these? “ Cain said after taking the stage. “I don’t need ‘em. Maybe they’re for somebody else.” Then he got philosophical, warning the audience against a life ...

WASHINGTON — A consumer group asked regulators on Friday to probe allegations that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain got illegal campaign cash from an influential conservative group backed by the wealthy brothers who run Koch Industries. The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics consumer group in Washington said it filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission seeking a probe of a report alleging that tens of thousands of dollars in illegal contributions were made to Cain's campaign earlier this year by outside political groups. Officials for the Cain campaign did not respond to a request for comment. Corporations, including those that are not-for-profit, ...

SPIN METER: GOP Flips On Job Creation For Defense

(11-04) 07:18 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) -- The same Republicans who insist that federal spending doesn't create jobs and should be cut in the face of staggering deficits are leading the charge against smaller military budgets because about a million defense jobs would be lost. Pentagon accounts are coming down, and Republicans who repeatedly reject the idea that an infusion of federal dollars can produce new jobs now say the government should keep billions flowing to the makers of guns, tanks, aircraft and ships for the sake of sparing jobs in home districts and states. It's the newest of several arguments against reducing Pentagon budgets. The contradiction undercuts the GOP's ...

The Tea Party opens a long-planned convention tonight in Daytona Beach, expecting 1,200 delegates, dozens of speakers — but almost no big-name politicians. None of the leading Republican presidential candidates and only two of the five U.S. Senate candidates agreed to speak at the three-day Florida Tea Party Convention at the Volusia County Ocean Center. And top Republican officeholders who have previously courted Tea Party support — Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and U.S. Rep. Allen West of Plantation — also sent their regrets. Organizers said they still expect two presidential candidates: U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, and former U.S. ...

Jon Stewart On Herman Cain: His Therapist Must Be So Proud

On last night’s “Daily Show”, Jon Stewart examined the ever-evolving story of what Herman Cain remembers about the sexual harassment charges that were purportedly leveled against him when he was the director of the National Restaurant Association. Perhaps, Stewart suggests, the trauma of the alleged harassment has caused Mr. Cain to repress the memories of the incidents and they are only now gradually returning to him, in which case his therapist must be very proud of the breakthroughs he’s making.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) probably felt right at home in Chicago Thursday after protesters from the Occupy movement interrupted his speech on budget reforms. The governor was about to speak at the Union League Club of Chicago when about 50 protesters disguised in suits temporarily delayed him from taking the podium. “We are the 99 percent!” they chanted. “Please, sit down,” an emcee from the Union League urged the protesters. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is what free expression is all about. And sometimes it’s very messy!” After about 10 minutes the demonstrators peacefully left the room, chanting, “Union busting, it’s disgusting!” ...

NEW YORK — Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York shifted their fight from the streets to the court Thursday, when dozens of people arrested while marching rejected a deal for them to avoid trial. The first batch of 78 protesters from among hundreds arrested for disorder over the last six weeks filed into New York State court, nearly all of them telling a judge that they were innocent and demanding a jury trial to clear their names. Prosecutors had offered a deal in which protesters would see charges dismissed provided they kept out of trouble for six months. The mass refusal raised the prospect of protesters clogging up a court system that will be obliged to provide each ...

Romney Campaign: Tea Party Movement Fueled By Koch Brothers

The Koch brothers are the “financial engine of the Tea Party” despite denying they are “directly involved” in the movement, according to a Mitt Romney campaign memo. Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers who own Koch Industries, have long championed libertarian and free-market policies. They have been heavily involved in bankrolling anti-regulation politicians and organizations. The liberal blog ThinkProgress hailed the memo as a confirmation of their claim that the tea party movement was orchestrated by the Koch brothers — not a spontaneous uprising of middle class voters. The memo was obtained by The Washington Examiner. It suggested that the ...
