W. Kamau Bell tells ‘blobfish-faced fool’ Ted Cruz to respect Trayvon’s mother

In the clip embedded below from “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” Bell sent a personal message to freshman Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX): Stop talking.

He began by referring to Wednesday’s congressional testimony by Sybrina Fulton, mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin. After Fulton explained that the “Stand Your Ground” law is a dangerous law that allows people of color to disproportionately be murdered by white defendants, Cruz addressed her.

“None of us in this hearing room were there that night,” said Cruz, “and we know that at the end of that confrontation, the teenager was dead.”

“It wasn’t ‘the teenager,’” said Bell. “His name was Trayvon Martin and you’re talking directly to his mother, so have some goddamn respect, you blobfish-faced fool!”


Poll: Virginia governor race a nailbiter

With less than a week until Election Day, Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe holds a slim lead over Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in a tightening race, according to a new poll on Wednesday.

McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli among likely voters 45 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. The edge is within the poll’s margin of error.

Howard Dean Gives S.E. Cupp Taste Of Fact-Based Reality

STEPHANOPOULOS: Wait a minute the White House just said that they have to have about 1/3 of the people 2.7 million of the 7 million people have to be young people.

CUPP: That's what it means.

DEAN: No. That's not true actually. Because the reason that is framed as being true is everybody assumes that you can't do community rating without an individual mandate, and that's not true. And I know that because I did it 20 years ago. We did most of the stuff that's in Obamacare--


DEAN: In Vermont and we also have almost every child under 18 has had health insurance in our state for 20 years. And we've had community rating, really tough community rating where you couldn't charge more than 20% above your base rate to anybody in the country, in the state. And you couldn't discriminate anybody for pre-existing conditions. We've had this for 20 years.


Rand Paul on "eugenics paranoia."

So, how is Paul helping Cuccinelli? Oh, you know, by heading on down to Liberty University and talking about the issues that are really important to Virginians, by which I mean "eugenics paranoia."

During a visit to the Christian school founded by Jerry Falwell, Paul looked to energize conservative supporters by warning that people who are short, overweight or less intelligent could be eliminated through abortion. With one week remaining, Cuccinelli is hoping the joint appearance with the U.S. senator from Kentucky will encourage the far-right flank of his party to abandon third-party libertarian spoiler Robert Sarvis.


Nevertheless, Paul was undeterred:

"In your lifetime, much of your potential -- or lack thereof -- can be known simply by swabbing the inside of your cheek," Paul said to a packed sporting arena on Liberty's campus. "Are we prepared to select out the imperfect among us?"


Reagan Losing 241 at Beirut in 1983 Didn't Happen No More

October 23rd, 1983. Ronald Reagan was President of the United States.

What stood out then, at least on television, was the toll of 241 dead at Marine BLT Barracks at Beirut Airport. Yet on the 30th Anniversary last week, in 2013, nothing was done to commemorate those losses. Not a word on network news or the commentary shows. The total number of deaths from four truck bombs there was 398. And it was carried out to get revenge for months of the U.S. Navy shelling Arab villages.

Corporate media made no mention of the Beirut, Lebanon invasion -- despite that the CBS program 60 Minutes is taking time tonight to replay the Benghazi attack and street riot that killed 4 on September 11, 2012.


Lie about the dead, ye superpatriots. IOKIYAR.

And when Lebanon 1983 is mentioned, for such as resume material, the bombings are blamed on Hezbollah. That is beyond absurd. In 1983 there was no Hezbollah -- getting revenge with these bombings is what let the Revolutionary Guard bring in 1,500 picked troops and get Hezbollah up and running as an effective military force.


Ted Cruz doesn’t want you to know who’s bankrolling his road to the White House

By now it seems pretty clear that Senator Ted Cruz has a plan to occupy the White House. But he doesn’t want people to know too much about it.

And he definitely doesn’t want you to know about the special interests that have already begun to bankroll his political ambitions.

That’s why the Texas senator’s latest crusade targets the Federal Communications Commission — and its efforts to better identify the funders of political ads.

Cruz has placed a hold on the Senate confirmation of Tom Wheeler to head the agency, despite bipartisan agreement to vote on Wheeler without delay. Cruz wants assurances from Wheeler that the FCC won’t follow the law and require disclosure of the real funders for dark-money political groups that clog the airwaves with negative and misleading ads.


Cruz lashes out at Senate GOP over shutdown failure

In remarks to an Iowa Republican group on Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that his government shutdown and debt default plan would have worked at repealing the Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare — if Senate Republicans had only backed him up. According to Talking Points Memo, Cruz was the keynote speaker at Iowa Republicans’ annual Ronald Reagan fundraising dinner.

“We didn’t accomplish our ultimate policy goal in this battle, and we didn’t because unfortunately a significant number of Senate Republicans chose not to unite and stand side by side with House Republicans,” Cruz insisted. “Had we stood together I’m convinced the outcome of this fight would be very, very different.”

Watch video of Cruz talking to reporters about his plans for the country, embedded below via the Des Moines Register:


Cruz is a very dangerous man. His deceit will know no boundaries.

Terry McAuliffe’s big test: Turn out black voters

RICHMOND, Va. — Will black voters come out for Terry McAuliffe?
In an election that polls show is his to lose, one of the last hurdles between the Democrat and the Virginia governorship is making sure African-American voters don’t stay home without President Barack Obama on the Nov. 5 ballot.

For the GOP the big test is how many black voters can they suppress.

List of our Tea Party "One hit Wonders"

Ted Cruz isn’t the only Tea Party nut. There’s plenty more of them


The absence of any official organizational structure might be one reason the Tea Party has remained so lively despite a terrible national reputation and negligible policy achievements. When something goes wrong, those identified with the failure fade for a time and the attention of Tea Party-identified voters shifts smoothly to someone else. There’s also no demand for positive policy victories or signature legislation: no one has to win a debate, just spoil the outcome. Thus it’s no surprise that Ted Cruz is the current face of the Tea Party: All his achievements are proudly in the negative, all his goals are set resolutely in the past. But the Tea Party’s fickle and hive-like nature virtually demands that Cruz cycle out of the spotlight eventually. He will either fail to stop something from happening or, perhaps worse, accidentally cause something to get done. For when that happens: here’s a look at some of the Tea Party’s once and perhaps future leaders. The don’t-call-them comebacks: politicians and activists who’ve tasted Tea Party’s adoration and haven’t given up on a second sip. These are primarily hacks who clawed their way on stage at some point and are now biding their time in minor-media purgatory with the hope that they’ll be able to fake-controversy themselves into relevance once more.


List of all of the Tea bagger, I mean Tea Party greatest...........

Does Ted Cruz seem a little crazy to you?

Cruz seems to be a power hungry type. The type of man who likes to start wars with other people's children.
