HBO to Air New Film "Into the Storm" About Winston Churchill in World War II - Video 5/11/09

Here is a video interview done by Hardball's Chris Matthews tonight about a new HBO film entitled, "Into the Storm," which focuses on the leadership of Winston Churchill during World War II. The film is set to air on HBO May 31, at 9:00 pm et. You can go here for the HBO preview of the film.
For five years, Winston Churchill played perhaps the single most important role in thwarting the Nazis during WWII, with his intrepid leadership and rhetoric inspiring millions of Britons and other members of the free world to fight Hitler's Germany to the bitter end.

Continuing the story of Churchill told in HBO's award-winning film, "The Gathering Storm," INTO THE STORM is set against the backdrop of World War II, and offers an intimate look at the making of a nation's hero, whose prowess as a great wartime leader ultimately undermined his political career and threatened his marriage to his lifelong supporter, Clemmie.


Robert Gibbs Admits 9/11 Limbaugh Joke was Out of Line - Video 5/11/09

Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs saying at today's daily briefing that the subject of "9/11" should not be the subject of jokes and humor. He was referring to the outrageous joke made by Wanda Sykes at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night in which she said Rush Limbaugh was supposed to be the "20th hijacker" on September 11, 2001.

It was grudging, but here is an admission by the White House that the remarks were out of line. But there was no explanation as to why Obama laughed so heartily if it is a subject better left untouched by jokes.


President Obama Leads Health Care Industry to Cut Cost Increases by 1.5% - Video 5/11/09

Here is video of President Obama today describing an agreement with Health Care Industry leaders that he says would save trillions of dollars in coming years, making it easier to provide coverage to those still uninsured in America.

The agreement is for providers to cut cost increases by 1.5 percent in coming years, saving $2 Trillion. It appears the Health Care Industry is trying to get on Obama's good side as his drive for National Health Care Legislation gets underway, hoping they will not lose their chances at profitability in the future. The reality is that this agreement does not cut health care costs at all from current levels, but only reduces the increase by 1.5%.

Obama pledged to lead America to National Health Care by the end of this year.

Obama Laughs as Comedian Calls Limbaugh the "20th Hijacker" and Wishes His "Kidneys Fail" - Video 5/9/09

Here is unbelievable and disgraceful video of Wanda Sykes - a woman who is supposed to be a comedian - savaging Rush Limbaugh at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night as President Obama looked on and laughed. Here is what he found so funny:

1. She accuses Limbaugh of perhaps being the "20th hijacker who missed his flight because he was strung out on Oxycontin" simply because he does not want Obama's policies of socialism to succeed. Obama laughed as she made the pathetic comments.

2. She also said she hopes Limbaugh's "kidneys fail" since he does not want Obama to succeed. Again, Obama found it delightful.

Barack Obama should have stood up and walked to podium and rebuked Sykes for these remarks. He should have made it clear that he does not consider those who dissent from him politically to be terrorists. He should have also said he does not wish death on people, like Limbaugh, who oppose his policies.

What if any conservative, like Limbaugh, had wished kidney failure on the President? There is no place for any such comments, and certainly not with the tacit approval of a laughing President of the United States.


Happy Mother's Day - "My Mother's Faith" - Video 5/10/09

In honor of Mother's Day, here is a wonderful video of Cynthia Clawson singing a hauntingly beautiful song entitled, "My Mother's Faith." I am thankful to have had a mother who loved and cared for me, and passed along her strong faith to me. I look forward to seeing her again someday. Happy Mother's Day!

White House Releases Photo of "Scare Force One" Incident - Photo 5/8/09

The White House has released one photo of the "Scare Force One" Incident that took place on April 27 in New York City. Air Force One was used for a reported photo-op, flying low over the city so that it could be photographed with the Statute of Liberty in the background. It was accompanied by an F-16 fighter jet, all of which panicked New York residents who thought a repeat of September 11 might be taking place. The White House Aide being held responsible for the crazy idea resigned today:

A top White House aide resigned today for his role in Air Force One's $328,835 photo-op flyover above New York City that sparked panic and flashbacks to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. His resignation was made public at the same time the photo of the flyover was released by the White House.

Louis Caldera said the controversy had made it impossible for him to effectively lead the White House Military Office. "Moreover, it has become a distraction in the important work you are doing as president," Caldera said in his resignation letter to President Barack Obama. . . . . MORE

Pakistan's President Zardari Says He Does Not Believe Bin Laden is Alive - Video 5/8/09

Here is video from an interview done by Meet the Press host David Gregory with Pakistan's President Asif Zardari that will air this weekend. Gregory asks Zardari if he believes Osama Bin Laden is alive, and Zardari says he DOES NOT believe that he is. He was evasive when asked if his government is actively looking for Bin Laden, saying only that "the world" is looking for him. You sure don't get the feeling watching this that he is going to be much of a reliable ally for the United States. I would guess the Taliban are licking their chops at the prospects of taking over in Pakistan with this guy in charge of the government.

Gregory goes on to discuss with the Morning Joe crew his full interview with Zardari, and Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai.


Michelle Obama Tells Crowd "Everyone Needs" a Chief of Staff and Personal Assistant - Video 5/8/09

Here is video of First Lady Michelle Obama today as she spoke about what life is now like in the White House. She said the following:

First lady Michelle Obama called her "current life" in the White House "a very blessed situation, because I have what most families don't have -- tons of support all around, not just my mother, but staff and administration. I have a chief of staff and a personal assistant, and everyone needs that."

"Everyone should have a chief of staff and a set of personal assistants," Obama said with a laugh as she spoke before a crowd of business executives meeting today during a "Corporate Voices for Working Families" conference at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington.
She made the comments before a crowd of Business Executives meeting at a Washington, D.C. hotel today.


U.S. Unemployment Rate Hits 8.9%; Highest Since 1983

Here is a video report on the news that the U.S. Unemployment rate has hit 8.9%, the highest level since 1983. There appears to be no end in sight. The video contains an interview with Hilda Solis, the new Secretary of Labor. The report shows 539,000 people lost jobs in April, and that there are now 13.7 million people unemployed in the United States.


Treasury Guidelines Make it Hard for Banks to Repay TARP Funds - Video 5/8/09

Here is Fox Business Channel video laying out the rules the U.S. Treasury Department has issued to Banks that want to pay back TARP money received from the government. This is exclusive information obtained by Fox Business Channel. It appears the rules are designed to make it very hard for banks to pay the money back, even though quite a number of them want to do so. This, of course, keeps the government very much in control when banks are beholden to them for the TARP funds.


CIA Documents Show Pelosi Knew About Waterboarding of Terror Suspect in 2002 - Video 5/7/09

Here is video of a report last night on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that talks about the Washington Post's story that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed on "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques" used against Abu Zubaydah all the way back on September 4, 2002, according to CIA documents. I know it is hard to listen to Maddow, but this report is good in that she plays an interview she did with Pelosi several months ago in which Pelosi flatly said she had never been told the techniques were being used on anyone. The Post report flatly contradicts what Pelosi said.

As I've said before, I don't believe waterboarding is torture, and am not bothered by the fact Pelosi knew the technique was being used. It's the fact that she has villified Republicans for the techniques when she knew about them all along! Pelosi and the Democrats are being completely disingenuous on this issue, just seeking to use it as a club against Republicans. It will be interesting to see if the radical Leftists, like Maddow, will now continue to go after Pelosi for her knowledge of the use of waterboarding the way they have gone after George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

Here is also a Fox News Report on the story:

Conservative Comedian Steven Crowder Takes on the ACLU's Ani-Christian Bigotry - Video 5/7/09

Here is conservative comedian Steven Crowder's new video taking on the ACLU and their anti-Christian bigotry in honor of today's National Day of Prayer, May 7, 2009. Steven gets better and better all the time!


Howard Dean Says America Has Had "Enough of Capitalism"; Advocates Carbon Tax - Video 5/7/09

Here is video of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today on CNBC where he made the statement, among other things, that "we have had enough capitalism the past 8 years; what we need now is some regulation." He made the comment just after the 4:38 mark of the video.

Dean was discussing with Jason Lewis the $17 Billion in Budget Cuts announced by President Obama out of a $3.55 Trillion 2010 Budget.

Dean at least was honest when he said this, and he also bluntly said that taxes (revenue increases he called them) will have to be raised. Dean said he felt it should be a "carbon" tax. Oh brother!


Flustered Reid Says Specter Forgot What Team He Was On in Supporting Coleman - Video 5/6/09

Here is video from yesterday of a speechless Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid being pressed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer about why newly turned Democrat Arlen Specter said recently that Norm Coleman ought to be declared the winner of the Minnesota Senate race over Democrat Al Franken.

At first, Reid hemmed and hawed about how to respond, and then came forth with this:

REID: "Last night I came to him and I said 'Arlen what's all this about?' And he said 'I forgot what team I was on.'"

This should make some great campaign ad fodder for whoever runs against Specter in 2010.


Matthews Continues His Inquisition of Republicans on the Theory of Evolution - Video 5/6/09

Here is video of Chris Matthews yesterday continuing his inquisition of Republicans on the question of, "Do you believe in evolution?" This time it was Tom Tancredo's turn. Yesterday, he did the same thing to GOP Congressman Mike Pence.

Matthews should ask the question differently. He should be asking, "Do you reject the Biblical account of Creation?" That's what he seems to be trying to get Republicans to say. Matthews is trying to make a distorted argument that people who believe in the truth of the Bible reject all science. He kept trying to make the link to "Climate Change" as well - when the truthfulness of Al Gore's impending doom with Global Warming is truly in great doubt. This was a fairly lame effort by Matthews.


Glenn Beck Kicks ACORN Rep Off His Set for Accusing Him of "Not Liking Black People" - Video 5/6/09

The video above is from yesterday of Glenn Beck interviewing an ACORN National spokesperson regarding their activities in Nevada, and the many examples of questionable voter registrations across the country. The video below has Beck explaining that during a break in the interview, the ACORN rep accused him of "not liking black people," to which Beck told the guy to "get the hell off my set." Beck is at his best in the interview with his guy!
