Oreilly is a polarizing figure and so is online gaming, especially at Begado Casino. There are advocates in Congress proposing a federal law, but Republican detractors. This, according to a supporter of Steve and, who runs a Begado Fan Blog. The conservative approach is to stick to legitimate gaming certifications and brands like Begado, says Zachary Gleason.

Corrupt GOP Still Pushing Keystone Pipeline After 4 Spills In A Month
By: Steve - January 31, 2015 - 10:00am

After their 2012 general election defeat, Republicans performed a self-autopsy and concluded that they had to convince the American people that they cared more about the regular people and not solely their special interest donors.

Obviously they ignored their own diagnosis and have committed to serving the interests of their owners the Koch brothers. This week, despite a looming veto threat from President Obama, after House Republicans passed a bill subverting the President’s purview over a foreign nation’s pipeline and the Senate is following suit sometime this week.

Of all the reasons to not build the Keystone pipeline, one that is often overlooked, and ignored by the corporate media, is the real and present danger of a break in TransCanada's rupture-prone pipeline.

It is absurd to think the Canadian tar sand pipeline is even remotely environmentally friendly, particularly when Canada will not allow the pipeline to be constructed on its own soil. Now, based on the fourth in a string of pipeline explosions just this month, it is also not close to what any thinking human being would regard as safe.

However, Republicans could care less about the safety of the pipeline any more than they care about the environment, and in spite of the fourth pipeline explosion in a very brief amount of time, they are going forward to enrich the Koch brothers, a foreign corporation, and of course John Boehner's stock portfolio.

The latest pipeline explosion took place in West Virginia and fortunately there were no deaths or injuries. Residents reported seeing a massive fireball shooting hundreds of feet into the air, and an emergency dispatcher said the heat from the flames melted siding off of one house and damaged a power line.

And btw, this pipeline explosion, or the other three in a month, were never reported by O'Reilly. He has not said one word about any of them, while joining with the Republicans to promote the Keystone XL pipeline as safe. This is not only a violation of the rules of ethics in journalism, it's corrupt for a journalist to ignore while a national debate is in process of approving the massive Keystone pipeline.

The Texas-based owners of the pipeline, Enterprise Products, L.P. said it was investigating the cause of the rupture and explosion, but they like TransCanada, claim oil and gas pipelines are safe. It is exactly what three other pipeline owners claimed just this month as Republicans are attempting to force construction of a foreign corporations pipeline carrying incredibly dangerous and nearly impossible to clean up tar sand.

Not to mention this: the Keystone pipeline would not help one American, all it would do is make the Canadian oil company (and their shareholders) richer, So it's a joke to begin with to even talk about allowing this massive pipeline to go across thousands of miles of American soil and water. Their should not even be a debate, we should have said no to it, more like hell no.

Opponents of the pipeline should be educating the unknowing public about how much more dangerous to the environment, particularly the water supply, a 1,700-mile pipeline carrying over 860,000 barrels of nasty, carcinogenic, and extremely corrosive tar sand crude oil is compared to conventional oil, and conventional oil is not easy to clean up.

The biggest problem with tar sand oil is that it is not just harder, but nearly impossible to clean up due to its viscosity that prevents it from floating. Instead, it sinks and with a projected path over the Ogallala aquifer, Nebraska residents and farmers primary source of water would be decimated. Nebraska Republicans care as little about their populations source of water as they do their health, and have claimed a tar sand spill "will only affect local residents source of water."

To get an idea of the devastation and long-term effects of a tar sand rupture over a major water source, it is worth noting the nation's first and largest tar sand spill happened nearly five years ago and is still a posing monumental challenge to clean up. The company responsible for the spill, Enbridge claimed their primary concern has always been pipeline safety and environmental consciousness.

The 2010 spill has oil industry and environmental experts stumped about how to clean up, much less recover, all the tar sand oil. As the EPA said in 2012, after two years of struggling to clean up the spill, they have been unsuccessful in cleanup and recovery attempts because there is no known procedure to clean up tar sands bitumen.

An agency spokesman said they had to write the book on how best to clean up nasty tar sand (dil-bit) in Michigan. Tar sand bitumen, the type of oil Republicans want flowing through the Keystone pipeline spilled into the Kalamazoo River and promptly sunk to the bottom. Local residents and EPA officials are still struggling to save the water supply nearly five years later.

It has cost roughly $725 million to recover 1.2 million gallons of the tar sand so far, and environmentalists at the EPA say just attempting to recover the carcinogenic tar sand is decimating the environment.

Residents in and around the Michigan spill have complained and reported nausea, migraines, and burning in the eyes and throat due to the toxins needed to allow the tar to flow. Tar sand will not flow unless it is diluted with toxic chemicals and after it does spill, the tar separates from the toxic dilutant and sinks.

The chemical-laden dilutant evaporates into the nearby atmosphere affecting air quality. It is obviously a hazard that Republicans are comfortable imposing on Americans in their drive to serve the oil industry.

And btw folks, Bill O'Reilly never reports any of this. If you want the Factor for news about the pipeline you would be clueless and total uninformed on the issue. All you would know is that O'Reilly and the GOP support it being built.

The fact is there is no good reason to allow a foreign corporation to build an environmental hazard waiting to happen on American soil, and yet Republicans are Hell-bent and duty-bound to do the bidding of the Koch brothers; despite President Obama's pledge to veto legislation approving the permit.

A permitting approval process, by the way, that is constitutionally the purview of the President and State Department; not the Koch brothers, a foreign corporation, or Republicans indebted to the oil industry.

Still, O'Reilly and his Republican friends continue to lie about the safety of the pipeline, and wasting taxpayer’s time and money, to pass legislation to construct a pipeline that is certain to rupture, explode, and decimate the environment.

And they are lying about Keystone while four pipelines ruptured or exploded amid ever-present promises it is a safe and environmentally-friendly means of enriching the Kochs, a foreign corporation, and corrupt John A. Boehner.

The Thursday 1-29-15 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - January 30, 2015 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: Americans Not Happy with President Obama's Take on Terrorism. The biased and dishonest Republican Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: There was another rather painful exposition at the White House yesterday. Deputy White House Press Secretary Eric Schultz referred to the Taliban as an 'armed insurgency,' not a terrorist group. The White House really needs to stop this nonsense because it has become a national joke. The Taliban slaughtered 132 Pakistani school children and it's an 'armed insurgency?' That's just insulting.

So I am going to send a chart to the White House. The following are terrorists because they either kill or support killing civilians: Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, the Taliban, the Iranian Mullahs, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and every other jihadist group.

A new Fox News poll shows Americans are getting fed up with the dumb dance the White House is doing. When asked if America is at war with radical Islam, 56% say yes, 37% say no. The truth is that most of the Muslim world would like to see the jihadis defeated. They are bad for business and bad for the soul. But America is not going to put the jihadis out of business because our commander in chief lacks the will.

The folks have had enough. Why should we bear the brunt of this savage war? If Muslim nations would declare war on the jihad, we and our allies would certainly help big time. But that does not seem to be a possibility in a cowardly world. And so the beheadings, the kidnappings, the bombings and the mutilations will continue unabated. Until the USA gets hit again. Then everything will change.
Comment from Steve: This is just more right-wing garbage, because only O'Reilly and his idiotic friends are not happy with Obama's take on terrorism. The rest of America does not care, nobody cares what you call it, we only care about fighting terrorism and keeping us safe, which Obama has done. And a Fox News poll as your evidence is laughable, it does not represent the majority of Americans.

So what did O'Reilly do then, he had the biased Obama hating Col. Ralph Peters on to slam Obama for the Bergdahl case, and of course there was no Democratic guest on for balance, making it a one sided right-wing propaganda debate. These fools will do anything to try and make Obama look bad, it's un-American and it's getting ridiculous. They can not slam him on gas prices, the stock market, unemployment, the economy, jobs, or Obamacare, so this is the best they can do, it's a joke and laughable.

Peters said this: "Everything I'm hearing, is that the White House has been exerting tremendous pressure on the Army and the Pentagon to whitewash the Bergdahl case. The White House doesn't think beyond the next public relations opportunity for the president and saving face, they just don't get it. For them, desertion is like skipping class, but for our military it's much bigger than this pathetic loser Bergdahl. If you cook the books and interfere with the Code of Military Justice, you have basically said that desertion is just fine."

Comment from Steve: Yeah and Peters is hearing that from his other Obama hating right-wing friends, so you can not believe anything they say when they are proven to be biased Obama hating idiots. It might be true, and we will most likely find out soon, but I sure would not believe what Peters and O'Reilly are saying about it, because they are partisan hacks who hate Obama.

Then the Democrat Jennice Fuentes and Republican Andrea Tantaros were on to talk about the Bergdahl case.

Another Obama hater Tantaros said this: "The Army is feeling pressure from the administration, to dump this investigation at a time when a lot of people won't notice. There is compelling evidence that they messed up this terror swap and they're waiting for a big incident to dump this."

But Fuentes advised against jumping to conclusions, saying this: "We don't know what is causing the delay and the only thing we can do is wait. I am interested in learning the facts, but I am not going to second guess the Pentagon."

Comment from Steve: Which is exactly what O'Reilly and Tantaros would be saying if we had a Republican President. Under Bush, O'Reilly and Tantaros always said we should wait until the facts come out before we slam anyone in the Bush administration. Now they say the exact opposite under Obama, simply because he is a Democrat and they hate him.

Then Donald Trump called in to the show, he was mad at O'Reilly for saying Trump and Sarah Palin running for President would be a "reality show."

Trump said this: "My beef is that all day long Fox News advertised Trump and Palin, and I was waiting for Trump and Palin. But there was nothing about me and nothing about her, so that was deceptive advertising. But I think you have your act together pretty well, Bill."

O'Dummy said this: "The segment was about all of the candidates on the GOP side and we said it would be very 'challenging' for you to put together an organization in every state. I don't think you're going to run for president, but I'm glad that you're speaking your mind."

Comment from Steve: Nobody cares, and how the hell is this news?

Then the biased Republican hack Bernie Goldberg was on to talk about an NBC News correspondent named Ayman Mohyeldin, who described "American Sniper" Chris Kyle as a "racist" who went on a "killing spree" in Iraq.

Goldberg said this: "Liberals learned a lesson after Vietnam, which was to not spit at the troops, literally or figuratively. But whether it's this 'correspondent' or Howard Dean or Michael Moore, these hard-left people didn't like the military then and they don't like the military now. And what they really don't like are American people who do like the military. They're going crazy because so many people are embracing this movie, which may become the biggest 'R' rated movie ever."

Comment from Steve: Nobody cares about this story but loons on the right, let it go, it's not news. Let people watch the movie and have their own opinions, it's none of your business, move on to real news.

Then the far-right stooge Laura Ingraham was on to talk about the 26 states that are suing the Obama administration over the president's recent executive order on immigration. Without telling you that every one of those 26 states are run by Republicans with Republican Attorney Generals, it's a partisan move, and the other 24 states are not suing the Obama administration. Funny how O'Reilly & Ingraham do not mention that.

Ingraham said this: "The argument the states are making, is that there are hundreds of billions of dollars in additional expense placed onto them because of this. In Indiana they say they'll have to pay welfare benefits, in Wisconsin they say illegal immigrants will have to get concealed carry permits, and in Texas they say they have to hire at least 100 new staffers to process all the paperwork for these new immigrants."

Ingraham then suggested that the federal courts may well uphold President Obama's executive action, saying this: "This will go to the Supreme Court, but I would remind my conservative friends that ObamaCare and Roe vs. Wade were never repealed."

Comment from Steve: What the President did is 100% legal and the courts will uphold it, the only people that do not like it are right-wing stooges, nobody else cares. It is the right thing to do, and the smart thing to do, they are already here and it is impossible for us to deport them all.

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: Give Credit When It Is Due. Billy said this: "Try to acknowledge and give tribute when someone, even if they do not share your politics or ideology, does something noble."

More Political Reality Bill O'Reilly Will Not Tell You About
By: Steve - January 30, 2015 - 10:00am

Five Years After Citizens United, Billionaires Are Buying Democracy

by Senator Bernie Sanders and Robert Weissman the President of Public Citizen

Five years after the Supreme Court's disastrous 5-4 decision in Citizens United, there's a lot to be angry about.

With election spending out of control, and super PACs empowering giant corporations and billionaires like no time since the Gilded Age, Big Money is not just influencing who's elected to office in this country, but what elected officials do.

Consider how the new Congress has opened: A House of Representatives leadership effort to skirt normal procedure and rush through a repeal of key Dodd-Frank provisions to rein in Wall Street speculative activities. A House of Representatives vote to authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. A House vote to handcuff consumer, health, safety, environmental and other regulatory agencies so that they cannot issue new rules to address corporate abuse and protect the American public.

Another House vote to repeal the Dodd-Frank measure, after the initial rush effort failed to garner a needed two-thirds majority. Meanwhile, in the slower-moving Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has decided Keystone legislation will be the first significant matter taken up.

What about jobs? What about falling wages? What about the minimum wage increases? Nothing from the Republican Congress.

Why is this the starting agenda for Congress? Most Americans are unfamiliar with derivatives clearing requirements, but they surely know they don't want to enable more of the aggressive Wall Street gambling that threw our nation into recession. Americans don't want dirty air, unsafe food and water, dangerous workplaces or to be ripped off by unscrupulous businesses; and by overwhelming margins, they want our regulatory agencies strengthened, not weakened.

And there's no serious case for the Keystone pipeline, given that it will do nothing for consumers, create only a few dozen permanent jobs, and significantly exacerbate the greenhouse gas emissions that are endangering the planet and humanity.

The Congressional agenda is the agenda of the billionaire class, plain and simple. The Koch brothers spent more money than we'll ever know on the last election. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was the largest "dark money" organization in the 2014 elections, at least in terms of spending required to be reported to the Federal Election Commission.

The Chamber invested very heavily and successfully in the 2014 elections to elect corporate-minded candidates in the Republican primaries and in the general election. Now these and other giant donors are being rewarded with their return on investment.

When it comes to the outside spending facilitated by Citizens United, there's a lot we don't know about who's spending money on elections. Groups like the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity primarily spent money in ways that aren't reported at all. And almost a third of reported spending was done by organizations that don't reveal their donors.

But even with what we know, it's staggering how few donors are wielding such a gigantic influence over our politics, and our country:

-- Across all federal elections since Citizens United was decided in 2010, there has been more than $1 billion in super PAC spending, reports the Brennan Center. Just 195 individuals and their spouses gave almost 60 percent of that money -- more than $600 million.

-- Forget about the top 1 percent. The top .01 percent of income earners are responsible for more than 40 percent of campaign contributions.

-- In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled in McCutcheon v. FEC that the previously existing cap on aggregate contributions by individuals was unconstitutional, raising the amount an individual can give to candidates, parties and political committees from $123,000 to $5.9 million. Only 1,200 people had even approached the previously existing cap.

Five years after the Supreme Court handed down the abomination known as Citizens United, we know this: Our country will not be able to address the great challenges it faces - from putting people to work and raising wages to providing healthcare to all, from reducing wealth inequality to averting catastrophic climate change, and much more - without ending corporate and super-rich dominance of our elections.

As a whole, the billionaire class has views that are profoundly out of step with everyday Americans. And that goes a long way to explain the agenda of the new Congress.

It also explains in significant part why we aren't making progress on measures that have overwhelming popular support. The vast majority of Americans want to raise the minimum wage. They want policies to advance income and wealth equality. By a more than two-to-one margin, Americans oppose more NAFTA-style trade agreements.

By a similar margin, they want to break up the giant banks, and they want Wall Street criminals put behind bars. Americans want investment in our schools, on sustainable transportation and infrastructure. They want policies to prevent catastrophic climate change. They want to protect--and improve--Social Security and Medicare.

But there's reason for hope, as well. The decision ignited a democracy movement. More than 1 million people have called on the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded companies to disclose their political spending. There are growing local and state efforts to win public financing of elections, and strong support for a federal bill as well.

And a grassroots firestorm is calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and related decisions, and to restore our democracy. The same day that the Supreme Court handed down its McCutcheon decision, demonstrators in more than 150 cities and towns took to the streets to demand an amendment.

Sixteen states and nearly 600 cities and towns have passed resolutions calling for an amendment. And, last September, in a historic moment on the path to winning an amendment, 54 U.S. Senators voted for an amendment.

Our country cannot tolerate domination by the Koch brothers, the Sheldon Adelsons, the U.S. Chambers of Commerce and their friends, and we will not. Five years after Citizens United, our democracy is weaker, but our democracy movement is stronger, than anyone could have predicted.

The road ahead is clear: Amending the constitution is hard by design, but it's something that We the People have done time and again to strengthen our democracy. We must do it again.

The Wednesday 1-28-15 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - January 29, 2015 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: Is Terrorism Overwhelming the Obama Administration? The biased and dishonest Republican Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: Former Defense Intelligence Agency Chief Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has slammed the White House for not having a strategy to fight the jihad and for refusing to use the term 'Islamic militants.' General Flynn said, 'You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists.' He joins a host of other former Obama officials in telling the world the administration has no plan to defeat Islamic terrorism. Talking Points has been chronicling that for months.

Here's the latest: Ten Democratic senators are telling President Obama that if there is no progress in the Iran nuke negotiations by March, they will join with Republicans in embarrassing him by passing sanctions. Iran is the centerpiece of this terror war. If that nation gets a nuclear weapon, the jihad gains incredible power.

And then there is the Bowe Bergdahl situation, again tied into the jihad. Sgt. Bergdahl was traded for five top Taliban terrorists who will most likely return to the battlefield to fight against America. Meantime, Bergdahl apparently left the battlefield, deserting his unit in Afghanistan.

The Factor broke a story earlier this week that says the White House is pressuring the Pentagon to go easy on Bergdahl. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer says the Army has come to the conclusion that Bergdahl did indeed desert.

The Army denies that but Shaffer is standing by his story, which has also been reported by NBC News. The White House desperately does not want a trial where members of Bergdahl's unit would testify that he put their lives in danger. So President Obama would prefer that Bergdahl be charged with going AWOL.

Then he could be quietly punished with no big exposition. But the facts show that Bergdahl did desert his unit. The sane way to do this is to charge Bergdahl with desertion, and then, on humanitarian grounds, the president would pardon him. But the sergeant would lose back pay and be dishonorably discharged.

Col. Shaffer reports that politics is influencing the Bergdahl situation. If that is true, we the people need to know about it. Bottom line: Talking Points believes the Army knows exactly what Bergdahl did and is stonewalling the process. As always, I could be wrong.
Note from Steve: Those are all opinions from Republicans that do not like President Obama and are trying to make him look bad. It's called right-wing talking points, and O'Reilly is a big part of it. And in the next segment you will see more right-wing bias, because O'Reilly had two Republicans on to discuss it, and no Democratic guests for balance.

Then Congressmen Trent Franks of Arizona and Ryan Zinke of Montana, both Republicans, were on to discuss it.

Zinke said this: "We did negotiate with terrorists, and we released five Taliban terrorists. We are doing the same thing in Gitmo. This president has shown that he is willing to break the Constitution."

Franks said this: "The Bergdahl swap essentially replenished the leadership ranks of the Taliban. This administration does not seem to understand that this trade put heroes at greater risk and said to terrorists, if you take one of our people you can get whatever you want."

O'Reilly added that Bergdahl's alleged desertion may have cost lives, saying this: "Reports are that American soldiers were killed hunting for Bergdahl, and we can't get an exposition of the investigation? It's outrageous."

Note from Steve: Notice that none of the three right-wing stooges mentioned that George W. Bush also did the very same thing. Under Bush many so-called terrorists were released, but under Bush these hacks never said a word about it then. They only cry about it when a Democratic President does it.

Then O'Reilly had the biased right-wing stooge Karl Rove on to talk about how Hillary Clinton can be beaten in the general election? With no Democratic guest for balance. In fact, not one Democratic guest was on the entire show.

Rove said this: "The most obvious issue is foreign policy. She was secretary of state and you can't look around the world and not see problems. She was the architect of the 'Russian reset,' we have problems in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the resurgence of ISIS. You can't point to any success, and people think about foreign policy a lot when they feel threatened."

Rove also theorized that Clinton is vulnerable on the economy, saying this: "She doesn't understand how the economy works, she doesn't have a vision of how it ought to go, and she's going to be stuck defending the anemic recovery we've had under Barack Obama."

Note from Steve: Which is just laughable, because under Bill Clinton the economy did great, and now under Obama the economy is also doing great. In fact, history shows that the economy always does better with a Democratic President, somehow Rove can not seem to remember that. And we have trouble with foreign countries no matter who is in office, Republican or a Democrat, so Rove is just a dishonest idiot.

Then Joe Tacopina was on to talk about a music video glorifying anti-cop violence that features two New York City public defenders. O'Reilly asked attorney Joe Tacopina whether those government-funded lawyers can be disbarred or otherwise disciplined.

Tacopina said this: "Under professional rules of conduct, they could be in for a rude awakening and disbarment is a possibility. The police union could file a complaint with the disciplinary committee. They have an obligation as lawyers to uphold the law and to make sure they don't do things that are prejudicial to the administration of justice."

Then Martha MacCallum was on to talk about the former Governor Howard Dean who trashed the movie "American Sniper" last week and mocked the people seeing the film. Now he's apologizing.

Cheryl Casone and Dennis Miller was also on, but I did not report on their segments because it is non-news nonsense that nobody cares about. And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: No Offense! Billy said this: "Your life will be much easier and more placid if you don't go out of your way searching for ways to take offense in remarks where no offense is intended."

Note from Steve: O'Reilly is talking about the moron Sarah Palin, who took offense to O'Reilly saying if her and Trump got in the 2016 Presidential race it would turn it into a reality show. Even though what he said is true, Palin got mad, and O'Reilly basically told her to lighten up.

Nicolle Wallace Said Palin Iowa Speech Showed How Dumb She Is
By: Steve - January 29, 2015 - 10:00am

Nicolle Wallace, who served as communications director for Sen. John McCain's 2008 campaign, shared her thoughts about Sarah Palin. She told David Letterman what it was like to work for Palin while she was going rogue.

Wallace described Palin as an "outside the box" choice for McCain's running mate, but said she was just never able to measure up to his "knowledge and experience."

"She was able to excite us, but she wasn't able to prove that she had the experience for the job," Wallace continued. She cited Palin's Iowa Freedom Summit speech this past weekend as another instance when, "on full display were all the gaps in her knowledge."

Which is a polite way of saying she is dumb.

"That's what became obvious, not just to the public, but to us," she said of McCain's campaign staff in 2008. "And that was sort of chilling."

"As someone who'd worked in politics for over a decade, I'd never encountered somebody like her," Wallace added.

Lets get real, Palin is a dumb Alaska hillbilly who was picked by John McCain to be his running mate because he is a moderate and the far-right nuts loved her, she was good looking, and she is a woman. She is not qualified to be anything in politics, and we all know it. She is dumb as a box of rocks, and I would not vote for her to be my Dog Catcher, let alone Vice President or even scarier the fricking President.

The Tuesday 1-27-15 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - January 28, 2015 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: The Presidential Race is On. The biased and dishonest Republican Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: In Iowa last weekend, nine Republicans showed up to present themselves to potential voters. Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul were not there, but the gathering got a bunch of attention. Some of the GOP hopefuls are not well known yet, but Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker recently caught a break when Rush Limbaugh praised him for having 'the blueprint for winning.'

Walker is a proponent of smaller government, has restricted the power of labor unions in Wisconsin, and has generally defeated the far-left at every turn in a state where the Democratic Party is strong. He will have to go up against populist folks like Chris Christie and Ben Carson, who effectively speak directly to the voters, but Walker and fellow Governors Perry and Kasich have very positive economic stories to tell.

Senator Rand Paul remains somewhat of a mystery to me. We've asked him on the program a number of times, but he always declines. It could have to do with his foreign policy outlook.

Senator Ted Cruz and former Senator Rick Santorum are conservative guys who must break through fast in order to raise money, while Senator Marco Rubio seems to have a bit more momentum. The senator's Cuban heritage gives him a unique perspective into the American minority situation, but that might put him up against his former mentor Jeb Bush, who will run as a moderate Republican with a record of achievement in Florida.

Mitt Romney is the best-known Republican. He will run again as an economic stimulator, but his road will not be easy. Other folks like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump certainly liven up the proceedings, but they need effective organizations in 50 states and that will be a major challenge. The race is already interesting and that's a good thing.
Note from Steve: This is a perfect example of the bias and dishonesty from O'Reilly. Because Bill O'Reilly reported on this gathering in Iowa as if it were 9 moderate Republicans who have a good chance to be the next President. When in reality it was a circus of far-right (out of the mainstream) conservatives who have no chance to be the next President.

The whole thing was a joke, and the media used the video of it to make fun of them. Palin was terrible and made a fool of herself, even most conservatives said she looked stupid and rambled on with nonsense. O'Reilly never mentioned any of that, instead he acted as if they were smart people who came off as Presidential.

When the reality is they came off as extreme right fools, the whole thing was like a skit on Saturday Night Live, not an actual gathering of serious Presidential contenders. Bush and Romney did not go to it because they did not want to be lumped in with those far-right loons, and O'Reilly never mentioned any of that either.

Then Monica Crowley and Democrat Kirsten Powers were on to discuss it.

Powers said this: "The biggest threat to Hillary Clinton is Jeb Bush. He has a record of accomplishments, he is well-liked, and he is going to buck the party at times, which will make him a good candidate in the general election."

Crowley advised the GOP to avoid nominating an establishment and more moderate candidate such as Mitt Romney, saying this: "He can raise money and he can pour his own money into a race, so money wouldn't be a problem. But the problem is that there is no compelling reason for Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush to be president. Running for president these days is like American Idol - you don't just have to be a serious thinker with a great record, you also have to be charismatic."

Then O'Reilly had the right-wing biased Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer back on the show, he made headlines on Monday's show when he said that the Army will soon charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion. After the Army pushed back hard, insisting that no decision has been made in the case, Shaffer returned to defend his reporting.

Shaffer said this: "I stand by all of the facts, and if you look at the written statement from the Pentagon, they don't deny what I said was in their report. I stand by the fact that Bergdahl's lawyer has been given a 'charge sheet' that tells them what to expect."

O'Reilly reminded Shaffer that he is now in a full-fledged war of words with the Pentagon, saying this: "The Army is calling you a liar, and if it turns out that what you're telling us is accurate they are going to look bad. We're in this for the truth."

Note from Steve: So let me get this straight, O'Reilly does a biased one sided segment with Shaffer where he said the Army will soon charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, so the Army and everyone at the Pentagon deny it. So what does O'Reilly do, he has the same guy back on to repeat his claims with no Democratic guest for balance, it was ridiculous. So much for respect the Army, I guess that is only a slogan for O'Reilly.

Where was the Army guest, or anyone who was disputing it, both segments were biased one sided garbage by O'Reilly and his biased guest. And every bit of it violated the code of ethics of journalism, that say, do not report anything you can not verify with a second source. And btw folks, it also violates O'Reilly's own rules. He said he never speculates and only reports the facts, so he broke his own rules to make Obama look bad.

Then the two Republicans Kimberly Guilfoyle & Lis Wiehl were on for the legal segment. They talked about a school district in Minnesota that spent more than a million dollars sending teachers to conferences of dubious value.

Wiehl said this: "These are discretionary funds, and they spent $60,000 on two conferences dealing with 'white privilege.'"

Guilfoyle added that district officials did nothing against the law, saying this: "Even though what they did was legal, you could throw them out of their jobs, which would be nice."

Then they turned to New Jersey, where a high school freshman was videotaped body-slamming his 62-year-old teacher to the floor.

Guilfoyle said this: "This 16-year-old has been suspended, and he'll go to another school for the rest of the year. If he's tried as an adult, he's looking at three-to-five years for aggravated assault."

Then Charles Krauthammer was on to handicap the Republican field at this very early stage.

Krauthammer said this: "Scott Walker is getting up there to the top tier, while I don't think Mitt Romney will even run, and Jeb Bush has the unfortunate fact of his last name. It's as if he needs to defend the record of George W. Bush, which adds a burden that he wouldn't have if his name was Jeb Smith. But he had a very good record as the governor of Florida."

O'Reilly pointed out that the GOP field is crowded with talented governors, saying this: "Rick Perry had a great economic record in Texas, John Kasich led an amazing turnaround in Ohio, and Scott Walker has done well in Wisconsin. But New Jersey under Chris Christie is running a big budget deficit, so it's not as clear-cut there."

Then the moron Jesse Watters was on, he hit the streets of New York after the much-anticipated apocalyptic snowstorm fizzled.

"The weather guys get paid either way," one New Yorker told Watters, "they just have to get look good on camera." Some other observations from New Yorkers: "The mayor ruined my wedding day because he shut down everything" ... "Now I have a stocked fridge for the rest of the week" ... "Al Roker has some explaining to do."

Obama Approval Hits 19 Month High In Gallup Poll: O'Reilly Silent
By: Steve - January 28, 2015 - 10:00am

When the Obama job approval numbers were below 50% O'Reilly reported it and mentioned it almost every night. But now that his job approval numbers are back up to 50% approve - 45% disapprove, O'Reilly is silent.

And btw folks, every President has up and down variations in their job approval, depending on a million factors that are beyond his control. And O'Reilly knows it, but he still used the down times for partisan political reasons just like every other Republican in America did.

According to the Gallup Daily Tracking poll, President Obama’s job approval rating has risen to a nineteen month high. By margin of 50%-45%, those surveyed approve of the job that President Obama is doing.

Last week's ABC News/Washington Post poll revealed that the president's job approval rating had increased by nine points in a month. The ABC News poll found that the positive changes in the president's job approval rating were directly related to the economy. The ABC poll found the highest level of approval of the economy since 2007.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is openly complaining that Obama is ignoring the results of the midterm election, but the polling is evidence that the White House is correct to ignore the election. Obama has gotten more popular since he began taking executive action and going on the offensive after the election. President Obama's State Of The Union address has also helped his standing with the public.

The president is countering many of the unpopular positions of congressional Republicans by standing up for the middle class, workers, Hispanics, and more benefits for families. Obama has taken control of the national agenda and put Republicans on the defensive. The polling demonstrates that the more aggressive agenda setting coming from the White House is popular with many Americans.

In other words, the more Obama does to go against what the Republicans want the more his job approval ratings go up. And that shows the opposite of what O'Reilly has been saying, O'Reilly is saying that since the people gave the Senate back to the Republicans it means Obama should work with the Republicans. But the facts show the opposite, that the more Obama goes against the Republicans the more his job approval ratings go up.

Obama is enjoying a late in his presidency resurgence. America is moving on from the dark years of war and recession, and President Obama is finally getting appreciation for his years of work on behalf of the country. But of course O'Reilly will never report on or admit any of this, because he is a biased right-wing hack who is not fair and balanced and never has been.

O'Reilly Gets The Facts Wrong Once Again
By: Steve - January 27, 2015 - 11:30am

Monday night O'Reilly had the right-wing biased Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer on to talk about the U.S. Army investigation of former hostage Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was swapped for five Taliban commanders more than six months ago.

O'Reilly asked Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer for an update on the troubling case, and he said this: "Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. The next step is a court martial."

Shaffer even claimed that the Obama administration has been stonewalling the results of the investigation.

Shaffer said this: "There is a huge battle going on and I am told that the individual trying to suppress this is Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. There is a titanic struggle behind the scenes, the White House wants this to go away."

And it looks like that is all lies from Shaffer, because real journalists at Reuters are reporting this.

Army Says No Decision Made In Bergdahl Investigation

The U.S. Army on Tuesday denied that a decision had been made to bring desertion charges against Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was released last year in a controversial prisoner swap after disappearing from his base in Afghanistan in 2009.

Major General Ronald Lewis, the Army's head of public affairs, said that report from Fox News, is "patently false."

"To be clear there have been no actions or decisions on the Sergeant Bergdahl investigation," Lewis said in a statement.

"The investigation is still with the commanding general of U.S. Army Forces Command (General Mark Milley) who will determine appropriate action - which ranges from no further action to convening a court-martial," he added.

The Pentagon's press secretary, Rear Admiral John Kirby, told a news conference that no decision had been made in the case and said Milley was under no pressure to make a decision on any timeline.

Top defense officials are sensitive about exercising any undue influence on officers responsible for cases in the military legal system.

Bergdahl, who spent five years in captivity after leaving his post, was released in May in an exchange with the Taliban for five inmates from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The deal was blasted by some Republicans, and some of his fellow soldiers called him a deserter.

General Milley received the findings of Army investigators late last month, is reviewing them and has not publicly indicated whether charges will be filed, said Jim Hinnant, a spokesman for U.S. Forces Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Milley is expected to make a decision soon on whether the findings merit a court-martial or some form of administrative punishment. The general also could decide no action against Bergdahl is warranted.

"There is no timeline to make that decision and General Milley is not being put under pressure to make a decision either way," Kirby told reporters.

If officials conclude that Bergdahl broke U.S. military law, they could force him to forfeit hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay accumulated during his captivity and give up future benefits.

Bergdahl is stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, where he is working as a clerk.

As usual O'Reilly had one biased Republican on who speculated about the facts, with no Democratic guest on for balance. And instead of saying they think this is what will happen, they state it as if it were a fact. In O'Reillyworld this is called journalism, but in the real world it's called garbage. And remember O'Reilly said you can not trust the internet, while this shows you can not trust him either, because a real journalist would have checked what Shaffer was saying before letting him report the lies.

The Monday 1-26-15 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - January 27, 2015 - 11:00am

The TPM was called: Is President Obama Being Humiliated? The biased and dishonest Republican Bill O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: On March 3rd, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address Congress about Iran and terrorism in general. Speaker of the House John Boehner invited Mr. Netanyahu but did not tell the president until the last minute. Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace believes the move is designed to embarrass the president, and many other Americans feel the same way.

But Talking Points dissents. I want to hear what Netanyahu has to say, and I hope President Obama rebuts his remarks publicly if they are false or misleading. Mr. Netanyahu and his nation are directly threatened by terrorism and Iran, thus they have to be deeply involved in what's going on. It's important for all Americans to know what Benjamin Netanyahu is thinking.

Now the bigger picture. Americans are in danger from Islamic terrorists and from Iran. President Obama believes he is making progress in a nuke deal with Iran, but the current negotiations have been going on for 14 months and have been extended twice. Some in Congress want to impose sanctions right now, but Talking Points has said that would be a mistake.

Yes, severe sanctions would have to be imposed if the deal fails and President Obama has said he would do that, but Congress should give Iran no excuse to walk away. If there is no deal by the end of June, then Congress can unleash hell and President Obama will have no choice but to go along with it. So let's put the saber rattling aside for five months, no antagonism.

That being said, many Americans have no confidence that President Obama will ever confront Islamic terrorism. In fact, some might surmise that the White House is actually afraid of the Muslim world. The White House gets away with this kind of nonsense because the American public doesn't care to know what's going on.

One of the reasons America was hit so hard in 2001 is that we were unprepared. Our intelligence services underestimated al Qaeda, and our immigration authorities were asleep. Well, in 2015 immigration authorities are still asleep, anyone can get into this country. And while our intelligence certainly has improved, public interest in terrorism overseas and the dangerous Iranian situation is almost nonexistent.

ISIS does not fear the USA, and certainly Iran is pushing us to the wall. Sadly, the president does not seem to be very engaged. Speaker Boehner's invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is not out of line. Let Netanyahu speak his mind, let him spell out the danger he sees to the world. That will be instructive, and maybe some Americans will finally pay attention. Probably not.
Note from Steve: This is more proof Bill O'Reilly is a biased right-wing stooge. We do not need to know what Netanyahu is thinking, and Boehner did something that has never been done before, he invited a foreign leader to speak to Congress, and if a Democrat did that behind the back of a Republican President O'Reilly and the right would call for him to be tried for treason.

But when a Republican does it they say it's ok and we need to hear from him, which is total garbage. And btw, Obama has been as tough on terrorism as Bush, if not tougher, he just does not insult them publicly as Bush did, so O'Reilly claims that is a weakness. When in fact it is smart, why make them more mad, that would lead to more terrorism if we do not need to.

Then Juan Williams and Mary Katharine Ham weighed in on the Netanyahu invitation.

Williams said this: "I think this is politically offensive, because it makes it appear that the American people have a politically-driven foreign policy. It used to be that these kinds of disputes stopped at the ocean's edge, but not in this case. Also, I think it's making Obama into the victim here."

And of course the Republican Ham agreed with O'Reilly and insisted that the invitation is entirely appropriate, saying this: "John Boehner told the White House about this and I am not sure what the president expects. He has systematically undermined his relationship with Congress, he has systematically undermined his relationship with Israel, and yet he expects everything to go swimmingly in a situation like this."

Note from Steve: Earth to O'Reilly and Ham, this has never been done before in the history of America, and according to Press Secretary Josh Earnest, such an invitation would be a breach of diplomatic protocol between world leaders. Typically, the foreign world leader must initiate contact with the White House if he wants to visit the United States. It was wrong, and only Republican stooges are defending it.

Then O'Reilly had Melissa Francis on for a new segment called "Did You Know That?" O'Dummy spoke with Fox Business anchor Melissa Francis about her unusual childhood, which included a starring role on the hit show "Little House on the Prairie."

Francis said this: "I had the Hollywood version of a 'tiger mom,' who pushed me relentlessly in everything I did. But I loved acting as a kid and Michael Landon was phenomenal, he was like Santa Claus and God rolled into one. I went to a regular school and I had straight As all the way along. And then, after Harvard, I started as an intern at a local TV station in Los Angeles. A station in New Hampshire gave me a shot, but I bombed and got fired. So I picked myself up and kept going, and now I have my dream job."

Note from Steve: How the hell this is news is beyond me, and I will never report on this waste of time segment again.

Then Megyn Kelly was on to talk about the New York State, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who has been charged in a corruption case.

Kelly said this: "They claim he was taking bribes and kickbacks to the tune of $4 million. In one example, he had a relationship with a doctor who referred asbestos cases to a law firm that Sheldon Silver happened to be a partner at. He never had to show up for work, but the law firm allegedly gave Silver millions of dollars. In return, Silver gave the doctor a state grant for research."

O'Reilly said that Sheldon Silver, whether or not he is guilty as charged, has done great harm to the citizens of New York, saying this: "He single-handedly stopped 'Jessica's Law' from being passed in New York, he stopped education reform because he's in the pocket of the teachers union, and he basically makes all the decisions in one of the most corrupt states in the union."

Then the lame Jesse Watters was on, he headed west to Colorado and the X-Games, where competitors engage in dangerous skiing and snowboarding competitions. He asked some spectators a few simple questions about U.S. history and geography. While most of them actually knew George Washington was our first president, only a few could identify our enemies in World War II, the general location of the Atlantic Ocean, or the name of our national anthem.

Back in the studio, Watters summarized his extreme adventure, saying this: "I know for a fact that one guy was stoned, but that's about it. I just go for how people look - I see people and I ask them a few questions."

And finally, the lame Factor tip of the day called: Beware the Blogs. Billy said this: "A blogger paid by the Boston Globe made outrageous and untrue claims about The Factor. The Globe has issued a correction, but there's way too many falsehoods on the Internet."

Note from Steve: And I would say beware of the cable tv news hosts, especially the ones who work for Fox. Because they are partisan hacks who lie to the people on every show, and do it on television. O'Reilly lies every night and never issues any corrections, because according to him he has never been wrong about anything, which is just laughable.

Bill Maher Calls American Sniper Pro Iraq-War Propaganda
By: Steve - January 27, 2015 - 10:00am

Bill Maher ripped the lid off of the right's martyrdom of Chris Kyle by calling Kyle a psychopathic patriot and suggesting that the film was pro-war propaganda:
MAHER: Somehow their Twitter war broke out and now we have to take sides whether the American sniper is a real hero or not. Now, I said last week we had Kathryn Bigelow on who made Hurt Locker, and I said it kind of goes over a lot of the same territory. Hurt Locker made seventeen million because it was a little ambiguous and thoughtful, and this one is just American hero.

He's a psychopath patriot and we love him.

You know, I read some of the quotes from the real Chris Kyle. He said, "I hate the damn savages (talking about the Iraqis) and I've been fighting and I always will. I love killing bad guys. Even with the pain, I loved what I was doing. Maybe war isn't very fun, but I certainly was enjoying it."

Um, I don't, Eisenhower once said, "I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can."

I just don't see this guy in the same league as Eisenhower, I'm sorry. And if you're a Christian, I know this is a Christian country. "I hate the damn savages. I don't give a f**k what happens to them. It doesn't seem like a Christian thing to say.
American Sniper is a right-wing propaganda film that implies that Iraq was responsible for 9/11. Chris Kyle is the perfect martyr for the right. Since he is dead, they have no worries about the real Kyle opening his mouth and destroying the pro-war mythology that they have created around him.

Some on the left have happily jumped in giving the right what they wanted by questioning Kyle's heroism, but Kyle is just a symbol of a deeper deception.

The problems with American Sniper are much deeper than whether or not Kyle was a hero. The problem is that the film serves as a facts optional right-wing justification for the Iraq war. I agree that the film is a dishonest whitewash of the Iraq War.

More people should be talking about the fact that Kyle was murdered by an Iraq war veteran who was suffering from PTSD.

The real story of the Iraq war isn't a Clint Eastwood directed testosterone filled flag waving piece of propaganda. The true story is that veterans of the war that American Sniper glorifies are taking their own lives every day.

How Chris Kyle died undermines the "killing bad guys" propaganda that he embraced in life.

Bill Maher said there is something psychopathic about a person who professes a love for killing, but there was something even more psychopathic about the Bush administration. It was the Bush White House who took advantage of the fears of the nation that they had a sworn oath to the lead by lying the populace into an unrelated war.

Basically, American Sniper is another attempt by O'Reilly and his friends on the right to rewrite history and justify their failed war.

And one more thing, O'Reilly and the right cry on and on about Obama and liberals doing things that divide the nation, then they use the American Sniper movie and the dead Chris Kyle to divide the nation, when they do not need to do it. So they are hypocrites when they complain about the left doing things to divide the country, because they do the very same thing, and do it all the time.

Why dont we just let each person watch the movie and form their own opinion about it, and stop using the movie to divide the country for political gains.

Hey O'Reilly: If America Is Center-Right How Do You Explain This
By: Steve - January 26, 2015 - 11:00am

Bill O'Reilly tells us almost every day that America is a center-right country and the majority of Americans agree with him on most issues and want Republicans to run everything. But if that is true how the hell did Obama get to be the President for 8 years, and how the hell is Hillary Clinton crushing all the possible Republicans that could run against her for President.

O'Reilly never talks about this, because it destroys his propaganda that America is a center-right country, and the truth is that America is a center-left country. The reason the left does not win more elections is because of the money Republicans have, and gerrymandering. They basically rig congressional district maps so Republicans win, because Democrats always get more overall votes in the country, while losing elections because of gerrymandering.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released on Thursday shows Hillary Clinton crushing the entire GOP field. The poll, drawn from a representative sample of 843 registered voters, finds Clinton leading five prominent Republicans by double digits.

The survey found Clinton with the largest lead over Mike Huckabee. She leads the former Arkansas Governor, turned pop music critic, by an immense 56-39 margin. She posts a similarly large lead (55-40) over 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Rand Paul, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush are just slightly more competitive than Romney and Huckabee. Rand Paul and Jeb Bush each trail Clinton 54-41, while Chris Christie is down 53-40.

Women voters give Clinton a 20-point margin or greater, against each of the Republican candidates. Male voters also prefer Clinton, but by a considerably smaller gap. Clinton also performs exceptionally well with minorities, young people, and low-income voters.

Many GOP hopefuls will be spending their Saturday afternoon courting House Republican extremist Steve King at his Iowa Freedom Summit. While this may improve their visibility with socially conservative Iowans who dominate GOP caucus events, it is not likely to help them achieve the mainstream appeal needed to defeat a formidable candidate like Hillary Clinton in a general election.

If Clinton were to maintain her double-digit lead, she would be in position to win in the largest presidential landslide since Republican Ronald Reagan's 1984 drubbing of Democratic nominee Walter Mondale. A double-digit popular vote advantage would project out to approximately 400 electoral votes, potentially putting a number of reliably red states into play. For example, Arizona, Georgia, and Missouri would become clear pickup opportunities in such a blowout.

In other words, Republicans are out of touch with mainstream America, and all their candidates are to the extreme, so they lose in the polls to Hillary Clinton. They do not run moderate candidates, because the far-right base would revolt. And that is why they will lose another presidential election in 2016, and we will have our first woman President.

As the 2016 election draws nearer, Republicans, with help from talk radio and FOX News, will do everything they can to smear Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee. Her popularity would probably drop some in the midst of a polarized political campaign.

However, she currently is in an unusually strong position to become the Democratic nominee, and to convincingly defeat whichever Republican candidate is chosen to run against her.

How The Government Helps The 1 Percent More Than The 99 Percent
By: Steve - January 25, 2015 - 11:00am

Here are some facts about the Government and the 1 percent, you will never hear about any of this from O'Reilly, because he is a Republican and part of the 1 percent.

Written by E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post
Posted Jan. 21, 2015 @ 4:39 pm

You may think that government takes a lot of money from the wealthy and gives it to poor people. You might also assume that the rich pay a lot to support government while the poor pay a pittance.

There is nothing wrong with you if you believe this. Our public discourse is dominated by these ideas, and you’d probably feel foolish challenging them. After Mitt Romney's comments on the 47 percent blew up on him, conservatives have largely given up talking publicly about their "makers versus takers" distinction. But much of the right's rhetoric and many of its policies are still based on such notions.

It is thus a public service that the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) has issued a report showing that at the state and local level, government is, indeed, engaged in redistribution -- but it's redistribution from the poor and the middle class to the wealthy.

It's entirely true that better-off people pay more in federal income taxes than the less well-to-do. But this leaves out not only Social Security taxes, but also what's going on elsewhere.

The institute found that in 2015, the poorest fifth of Americans will pay, on average, 10.9 percent of their incomes in state and local taxes and the middle fifth will pay 9.4 percent. But the top 1 percent will pay states and localities only 5.4 percent of their incomes in taxes.

When you think about it, such figures should not come as a surprise. Most state and local governments rely on regressive taxes -- particularly sales and excise levies. Poor and middle-class people pay more simply because they have to spend the bulk of their incomes just to cover their costs.

This gets to something else we don't discuss much: Public policies in most other well-to-do countries push much harder against inequality than ours do. According to the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS), the United States ranks 10th in income inequality before taxes and government transfers. By this measure, Ireland and Britain, and even Sweden and Norway, are more unequal than we are.

But after government transfers are taken into account, the good old USA soars to first in inequality. Norway drops to sixth place and Sweden to 13th.

It's not a matter about which we should be proud to shout, "We're No. 1!"

Actually, things may be a bit worse for us even on pre-transfer incomes, said LIS Director Janet Gornick, because people in the other rich countries tend to draw their pensions earlier.

The overall story is that we are not very aggressive in spreading the wealth around. "Our inequality is already high because of the low minimum wage, the weakness of unions and very high levels of private-sector compensation at the top," Gornick, a professor at the Graduate Center of City University of New York, said in a telephone interview from Luxembourg. "But on top of that, we are redistributing less than other countries and also have lower taxes on the highest incomes, particularly income from capital."

And at the state and local level, our governments are exacerbating inequality. The ITEP study concludes that "every single state and local tax system is regressive and even the states that do better than others have much room for improvement." The five states with the most regressive systems are Washington, Florida, Texas, South Dakota and Illinois.

On its face, the property tax would seem progressive, because big houses are taxed more. But the study finds that on average, "poor homeowners and renters pay more of their incomes in property taxes than do any other income group -- and the wealthiest taxpayers pay the least."

There is also an unanticipated consequence of growing economic disparities: Because states and localities tax the wealthy less, "rising income inequality can make it more difficult for state tax systems to pay for needed services over time. The more income that goes to the wealthy, the slower a state's revenue grows."

Political debates are typically driven by cliches, but at the very least, we can expect our cliches to be true. We need to stop claiming that we have a massively redistributive government. We need to stop pretending that poor people are "takers" when they in fact kick in a lot to the common pot. And we need to replace arguments about big and small government with a debate over what governments at all levels are doing to make our society more just -- or less.

Proof The O'Reilly Factor is Biased Against Barack Obama
O'Reilly said he is a non-partisan Independent, who is fair to both sides, and that he has been fair to Barack Obama. To check that claim I did a 3 month study of the Factor, it started on August 1st, 2008, and ran until October 31st, 2008. I watched the Factor every night and counted the negative and positive comments for Obama and McCain.

Visit the web page I set up, and you will see the stunning bias from O'Reilly and his mostly Republican guests against Barack Obama. Then you will see there is no doubt Bill O'Reilly is a dishonest and biased Conservative. This study is conclusive proof that O'Reilly is in the tank for John McCain.

Proof O'Reilly Lied About The Balance on His Show
O'Reilly claims the factor is balanced, and that he personally makes sure every week he has an equal number of Republican and Democrat guests. This is a bold faced lie, and I can prove it. I put together a web page that shows the guest list from the factor for the last 2 weeks. Read it and you will see with your own eyes that Bill O'Reilly is lying when he says the factor is balanced.

And remember that we are 3 weeks before a major Presidential election, or the Republican bias numbers would be worse than it is normally. O'Reilly is actually having more Democrats on than he usually does, and the balance is still not even close. If we were not so close to an election it would be a lot worse.

O'Reilly Sucks Investigation: Dishonesty, Deception, And Bias By Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly claims there are no Republicans or Conservative groups that rival George Soros. O'Reilly said the top three conservative tax-exempt foundations are totally dwarfed by Soros and the radical Ford Foundation. And that they have 15 times more the assets. George Soros net worth is $8.5 billion, the Ford Foundation has a net worth of $13 billion. But the seven billionaires who donate to Newt Gingrich and other right-wing causes have a combined net worth of $34.8 billion dollars.

Somehow O'Reilly claims that Soros and the Ford Foundation have 15 times more the assets than anyone on the right. When the seven billionaires alone who give money to Newt, have roughly $14 billion more than Soros and the Ford Foundation combined.

(( Right-Wing Hate Speech Ignored by Bill O'Reilly ))
O'Reilly claims there is no hate on the right, that it's all on the left. But the way he defines hate is ridiculous, if a liberal blog or website writes an article that criticizes George W. Bush (or any Republican) O'Reilly calls it hate. When it's not hate, it's reporting the facts, there is no hate. A great example is when websites like,, etc. criticize O'Reilly he calls it hate, and says they are hate groups who lie about him.

That is a lie, it is not hate, and they are not hate websites. There is real hate on the internet, but O'Reilly does not report it, because most of it is from the right. I have documented this hate in my blog and on a web page, all of it was ignored by Bill O'Reilly, and it was never reported on the Factor.
