Politicians sometimes say things they regret. Unless they say so later in a memoir or even–less frequently–a public retraction or apology, we don’t always know what those things are. Often, but not always, they are statements that make the speaker seem out of touch with world events.
For example, George W. Bush probably regrets telling FEMA Director Michael Brown that he was doing “a heck of a job” in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. His father undoubtedly wishes he’d never told anyone to read his lips. We’re not sure what Bill Clinton’s most regretted remark is–that would depend on what our definition of “is” is, probably.
It may not turn out to be Politifact’s 2014 Lie of the Year to succeed President Obama’s promise that we’d all be keeping our doctors and health plans, but Nancy Pelosi just made a statement so utterly ridiculous, so outrageously uninformed, that we have to believe she’s going to regret it for a long, long time.
Shockingly, Governor Bill Haslam isn’t thrilled.
Via Fox News:
Imagine you’re about to sit down for supper when suddenly 760 folks show up on your front porch wanting fried catfish and hushpuppies. You’d be fit to be tied as they say in Tennessee.
And Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is fit to be tied.
The Obama administration recently released 760 illegal immigrant children to sponsors in the Volunteer State without any warning, the governor charged.
There was not so much as a text message or tweet.
“It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administration’s knowledge,” the governor wrote in a strongly-worded letter to President Obama.
Haslam, a Republican, said he still has not been contacted by the Obama administration – and has no idea where the illegals were resettled.

What would happen if Americans learned that Barack Obama is not just an individual with a history of radical, anti-American associations, but an illegal President and an unindicted felon?
What would happen if Americans learned that the US government, including all members of Congress, and leading figures in American media knew it and deliberately hid the truth from us?
If such a scenario were true, the political system and the media, as we now know it, would collapse, most politicians and journalists would lose their jobs and many would go to jail.
Who in government and the media have the greatest incentive to remain silent and run out the clock on Barack Obama?

He only killed a cop, what’s the big deal?
OAKLAND, Calif. – A collection of labor unions is demanding that leaders of California’s Oakland Unified School District allow a lesson plan that compares convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to appear on the district’s website.
In a resolution passed on July 14, the Alameda Labor Council condemned Oakland Unified school leaders for censoring the pro-cop killer lesson plan, entitled “Urban Dreams,” and accused them of buckling to the intimidation tactics of the Fraternal Order of Police and Fox News.
The Alameda Labor Council – which is affiliated with the AFL-CIO – is an umbrella organization that coordinates the political activities of more than 100 unions, including the Berkley Federation of Teachers and the California School Employees Association. [...]
In its resolution, the Alameda Labor Council maintains that Abu-Jamal is innocent of killing Faulkner and defends the “Urban Dreams” curriculum as “invaluable” for teaching students to think critically about social justice.
This was beautiful!
Sarah Palin unloads on Obama lackeys at the Washington Post.
– Dares them to cover the Obama IRS targeting scandal.
My Challenge to the Washington Post
To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.
One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”
The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.
Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

In January the U.S.-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that the next plane
could bring a pandemic.
At the time, they were referring to highly contagious strains of deadly flu virus, but in reality any killer virus could travel around the globe in less than a day.
In March, we warned that the deadly Ebola virus, which kills upwards of 85% of its victims, was spreading at an alarming pace in West Africa. It was so serious that governments in the region had locked down their borders. The following month in April, officials in the U.S. and Canada were alerted that the virus may have made its way to North America, though no follow-up information was provided after the initial report. Then, just last month, the World Health Organization issued a dire warning – Ebola could go global.
Despite these warnings and the fact that over 650 people are confirmed dead by medical officials in Africa, global governments failed to take any significant action. Flights out of West Africa were still being allowed to leave without any real screening procedures, even though medical professionals in the region had warned that containment of the virus was spiraling out of control.
Now, amid the highly publicized infection of a leading Ebola doctor, the first case of the virus travelling aboard a commercial passenger airline has been confirmed.

Our US Border Patrol agents are literally serving on the front lines in the ongoing border crisis invasion, and morale is suffering because they aren’t getting the support they need.
Agents are finding their hours are getting cut and their ammo is being limited. This is happening while they are constantly getting shot at by cartel criminals and corrupt Mexican military units, while being ordered to retreat if they come under attack.
Their time is spent dealing with unaccompanied children and families of illegal immigrants, sometimes catching their infectious diseases, instead of interdicting and preventing the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and terrorists across the border
