White House press secretary Jay Carney made an “angry phone call” to a Fox News executive after the network aired a scathing video review last month of President Barack Obama’sfirst three years in office, the New York Times reported.
According to the Times, Carney told Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president for news, that the video had crossed the line even for “Fox & Friends,” the morning show where it aired. Two unnamed Democrats reportedly told the newspaper about the call, described as a “private conversation.”
As The Blaze previously reported, the four-minute clip featured a series of “then and now” comparisons, including the national debt, jobless rate and gas prices. It was met with heavy criticism from both sides of the political spectrum: Media Matters said it “crossed a new ethical line” while Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey questioned whether “a news organization [should] produce and publish attack ads like this?”
Worries over a “major catastrophe” hitting the United States also drive firearms purchases
Gun shops are citing fears over Barack Obama’s re-election to explain surging sales, with one store in Lubbock, Texas reporting “drastic” increases in firearms purchases, as a new National Geographic survey finds a majority of respondents believe America will be hit with a “major catastrophe” at some point.
“Now that it’s election season again, you have people uncertain… You have a customer or two coming in and saying that they’re buying because they’re afraid they won’t be able to get it soon,” said J.D. Clay, salesman at Sharpshooters Inc.
Sharpshooters report a 40 per cent increase in recent sales, a figure that has been matched or surpassed nationwide. Gun store owners in West Texas are reporting 50 per cent hikes in sales. The FBI reports a 23 per cent increase in background checks compared to the year before in the lone star state.
After record one day sales on Black Friday back in December, gun stores are also celebrating all time high sales for the month of February.
Gun manufacturerSmith & Wesson’s shares also shot up 18 per cent last week, their highest level in two years, on the back of reports of a 60 per cent surge in backlog orders.
Interest in gun shows is also rampant, with a record turnout of nearly 4,000 people showing up to an event in Iowa this past weekend. Concealed carry permits in the state have soared by as much as 270 per cent over the last year in some counties.

Gun enthusiasts fear that Obama will use his same duck second term to follow through on a promise he made to gun control advocate Sarah Brady during a White House meeting last year, that his administration was working “under the radar” to sneak attack the second amendment rights of American citizens.

Ed Padgett knows a thing or two about printing newspapers.
For the last 39 years, he has been working as a pressman at the Los Angeles Times.
In the near future, he could be out of a job.
“[The management is] expecting a really bad fourth quarter. The senior vice president told us we’ve got three years more of printing the hard copy Times before they shut it down. Our plant manager says five years,” he told The Frying Pan.
A LAT spokeswoman said that there were no plans to cease publication of the print product, but you would not expect her to say anything different.

The New York Magazine’s Joe Hagan has done his level best to ingratiate himself with leftist media elites by championing Cass ‘ban free speech’ Sunstein as part of a smear piece on Alex Jones that recycles the same tired old clichés in a bid to make deluded intellectuals feel more comfortable about sticking their heads in the sand while a malevolent global elite that Hagan is intent on proving doesn’t exist masterminds America’s downfall.
Entitled, A Strange Man Is Following You, the article seeks to dismiss concerns about the Bilderberg Group, the Federal Reserve and the orchestrated economic collapse by characterizing Alex Jones as a paranoid crank who spouts paranoia for profit while inspiring mass shooters like Jared Loughner.
The whole tone of the profile and the fact that it would be a hit piece became fairly obvious as soon as the interview commenced.
According to Jones, Hagan spent the entire interview trying to get Alex to admit that he yearns and grovels for a show on Fox News. an important set up for Hagan’s final slap down when he quotes Fox News programming executive vice-president Bill Shine who states, “That’s not going to happen, so he should stick with trying to locate the black helicopters.”
In reality, Jones spent the whole discussion pointing out that Fox News is just the right-wing pillar of the crumbling corporate media, and that he had no interest in compromising his message merely to emulate the likes of…………………
Donilon was also a senior adviser to the presidential campaign of Michael Dukakis. He broke his losing streak when he assisted Bill Clinton with debate preparation, then served as an adviser for Clinton’s 1992 transition team. He helped prepare President Obama for his debate with Senator John McCain.
Oh, yes. He was Executive Vice President at Fannie Mae. He lobbied against increased regulation of Fannie Mae… and made millions of dollars while doing it. And now the President has appointed him America’s National Security Advisor.
According to journalist Michael O’Brien, “Rep. Cliff Stearns R-Fla. pressured Donilon, the current deputy national security adviser, to decline the new job due to his work in the past as a lobbyist for mortgage giant Fannie Mae and his lack of previous military experience

Speaking of boondoggles…
Officials at Grambling State University in Grambling, La., have dispatched an e-mail to students warning them against forwarding certain political e-mails they may get on the school e-mail system, because they could violate “state policy.”
The issue is being highlighted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which monitors educational institutions for violations of civil rights.”As the national dialogue increasingly focuses on the upcoming elections, administrators at Grambling State have made the unconstitutional decision to shut down the conversation on campus,” said Robert Shibley, the organization’s senior vice president.
“The First Amendment protects such core political expression, and as a public university, GSU cannot lawfully prevent students and faculty from speaking their minds about the electoral choices facing our country,” he said.”Back Fired,” by William J. Federer, shows how the faith that gave birth to tolerance is no longer tolerated!
It was an e-mail from GSU’s Office of Media Relations that started the problem.”Individuals who receive political campaign solicitations via university e-mail are advised to delete these e-mails upon receipt,” said the e-mail. “DO NOT FORWARD campaign solicitations using university e-mail as this implies your support for the candidate and may be viewed as utilizing university resources for solicitation purposes, a violation of … state policy,” according to FIRE.

Well, perhaps Sarah Palin is not Mensa material, but she is one hell of a lot brighter than Joseph Biden, the gaffe-prone court jester currently making a mockery of the “Exceptional American” theory which holds that we have the best and the brightest in charge of things in America.
Biden’s latest Oops! moment came this morning when the addled VP reportedly said the following: “Biden conceded that the economic recovery was not proceeding as fast as the administration had hoped, but claimed there was ‘no doubt we’re moving in the right direction.’”
