June 25 2014 Wednesday-South Korea Ferry Disaster Survivors Finally Return to School

As parents of the dead wept, dozens of teenagers who survived a ferry sinking that killed hundreds of their schoolmates walked in a somber procession Wednesday to their first classes since the April disaster. Wearing white and black uniforms and carrying book bags, some of the 73 students bowed their heads as they cried and walked slowly from a bus to the school entrance. Adults carried banners of encouragement. One read: "I love you." A large placard, which read "We pray the dead will rest in peace," was hung from the school entrance gate.

June 24 2014 Tuesday- BREAKING:U.S. Archivist to House Committee: IRS Didn't Follow the Law

The IRS recently informed Congress that a whole chunk of Lois Lerner's e-mails were lost because of hard drive failure. During last night's big IRS hearing, Republicans were outraged over the IRS not informing them of the lost e-mails right away, but instead sitting on the information for a while, and today they brought the official United States archivist, David Ferriero, before the House Oversight and Investigations Committee to address the legality of this issue.
Congressman Tim Walberg brought up how federal agencies are supposed to inform the U.S. archivist of any unauthorized destruction of federal records and asked, "At any time in 2011 through last Monday, did the IRS report any loss of any records related to Lois Lerner?" Ferriero said they did not.

Walberg continued to ask Ferriero whether the IRS violated the law by not reporting the loss of these e-mails. Ferriero replied, "They did not follow the law."

June 24 2014 Tuesday-Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett Fighting with Airport Cops

Last month, Fox anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested in a Minnesota airport bar for public intoxication after the network announced that he was taking time off for personal reasons.

The Minnesota State Airport Police released Jarrett’s incident report, as well as video of Jarrett brawling with police officers at the airport, to Gawker after they filed a FOIA request. According to the report, Jarrett had recently been released from a alcohol and chemical dependency program, but had consumed one glass of vodka along with an anti-epileptic known as Gabapentin immediately prior to his arrest.

After they brought him to a holding cell to be evaluated by health officials, officer Mark Dorsey reported that Jarrett grew belligerent, telling him “This is all your fault,” and calling him a “fucking stupid ass.” He then apparently grabbed at Dorsey and the firefighter multiple times, and was immediately thrown into a hold by Dorsey, who then yells at him for resisting.

This post originally said the Minnesota State Police released the video. It was actually the Minnesota State Airport Police

Fournier to CNN: ‘I Was Naive’ to Give Obama Benefit of the Doubt on IRS

Almost exactly one year ago, National Journal editorial director Ron Fournier called for a special prosecutor in the IRS investigation while giving the Obama administration the “benefit of the doubt.” Now, following several hearings in which the IRS has defended the loss of Lois Lerner’s emails, Fournier regrets trusting the White House.
 “A year ago exactly tomorrow I called for a special prosecutor in this case while giving the president the benefit of the doubt,” he told CNN’s John King. “I now realize how naive I was to give the administration the benefit of the doubt. This needs to be investigated by an independent prosecutor.” Congress has now held several dramatic interrogations of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen over Lerner’s missing emails. Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace added that even if the lost emails represented no sinister intent, the IRS wasn’t exactly acting apologetic to a public that doesn’t yet believe its story.

Scarborough Goes off on NY Times for Running Christie Story over IRS: ‘This Is a Scam’

June 24 2014 Tuesday- Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough lit into the New York Times Tuesday morning for running a front page story about a possible second Chris Christie bridge scandal when he felt the IRS investigation was a far more pressing issue, calling the Times’ news priorities a “scam” and alleging that it was indicative of why conservatives don’t trust national news outlets.
“Is it possible that the New York Times and Washington Post are not putting on the front page of their newspapers the fact that an internal investigation has been launched against the IRS on the most shady behavior, and yet they put the Pulaski sky bridge whatever on page A-1?” Scarborough asked. “This is garbage.”

“This really is a scam,” Scarborough continued. “This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. It’s why they don’t trust broadcast news. There’s a double standard and you can see it on every broadcast. You can see it on the front page of every major newspaper. This is why we don’t trust the national news outlets, because they are so biased and slanted. It’s not the news that they run, even though this is a joke of a story to put on the front page here. It’s the stories they don’t run. It’s the omissions, the acts of omissions when Democrats are in power. It’s stunning.”
Former Bush administration official Nicolle Wallace found the IRS story on page A19 of the Times

 June 18 2014 wed-CNN Guest: Point of Cheney’s Anti-Obama Op-Ed Was to Rehabilitate Daughter

After Dick and Liz Cheney’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last night excoriating President Barack Obama’s foreign policy in the wake of the deteriorating situation in Iraq, CNN’s John King asked if the Republicans really wanted the Bush team “leading the charge” on this issue given their history with it.

The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin suggested the op-ed served a more personal function for Cheney: the political rehabilitation of his daughter following an aborted Senate bid. “The party wants to look to the future,” Martin said. “However, the Cheney family wants to look to the future, too, which is the point of that op-ed. It’s about helping out Liz Cheney, get her more of a platform, so she can start a political comeback of her own. This is less about Barack Obama or Dick Cheney; it’s about Liz Cheney and the next generation.” “It’s also about Rand Paul, by the way,” Martin added (the Pauls and Cheneys have beef). “This is about asserting the role of the hawks in their coalition, in their party, and making sure 2016 they nominate a hawk.”

June 18 2014 Wed-Chuck Todd on Obama Poll Numbers: Public Is Saying ‘Your Presidency Is Over

Discussing a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that shows President Barack Obama hitting his lowest foreign policy number in the history of the poll, NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd said on Morning Joe Wednesday morning that the poll reflected the public making a damning verdict about Obama’s presidency.

“This poll is a disaster for the president,” Todd said. “You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.” (Here came some awkwardness, as Nicolle Wallace, former Bush communications director at the time of Katrina, was sitting at the table.)
“Then on the issue of do you believe you can still lead, and a majority believe not,” Todd continued. “Essentially the public is saying, ‘Your presidency is over’ by saying a number like that. 54% saying he no longer has the ability to lead and solve problems. That’s one of those things, you’re sitting at the White House going, ‘Wow.’”

June18 2014 Wed-Megyn Kelly- The Obama Presidency Is ‘Imploding
Megyn Kelly opened her show tonight tearing into the Obama White House for what increasingly looks like an “imploding” presidency, given scandal after scandal after scandal the White House has found itself engulfed in, both domestically and abroad.

 Megyn Kelly The obama Presidency Is Imploding
Kelly opened with this simply question: “Is Barack Obama‘s presidency imploding?” She cited the bewildering fact that the U.S. may ally with Iran to deal with the situation in Iraq, and ripped Obama in particulas as “a president who has lost the trust of the American people by repeatedly misleading them.”

She went down a list of scandal after scandal that the president has briefly acknowledged while “smiling, golfing,” and attending fundraisers.

Brit Hume added that Obama’s goal from the start was to reduce the “American footpring in the world” by withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan, and the fact that Obama shows very little regret suggests he is “hesitant to change” policies, even when they are failing.

California Shooting Suspect Elliot Rodger's Life of Rage and Resentment

n YouTube videos he posted late last week, Elliot Oliver Robertson Rodger looks and sounds like a sweet, gentle soul, but the words he speaks reveal a tormented, twisted view of the world.

Especially of women, whom he is accused of having targeted in a shooting rampage that left six people dead near Santa Barbara, Calif., on Friday night.

Rodger was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head Friday night in his black BMW after a long shooting spree throughout the tony community of Isla Vista, adjacent to Santa Barbara in Southern California.

Seven people, including Rodger, were killed. Eight others were shot and wounded. Four more were injured when the BMW hit them. And yet another person sustained an injury that remained unspecified Saturday night.

It's a well-known fact: Morgan Freeman talks, people listen. But he's never sounded like this before. In a clip for the Science Channel first posted by Entertainment Weekly, America's narrator-in-chief indulges in a childhood game: inhaling helium to raise the pitch of his voice. There's no rhyme or reason to the short video — he doesn't actually explain the effects of helium, rather focusing on peculiarities in science — but it serves as a fantastic promo for the fifth season of the Science Channel's Through the Wormhole. Freeman, whose dulcet tones have previously graced movies like The Shawshank Redemption and March of the Penguins, has hosted the documentary series since 2010
