Valerie Jarrett Confronted Over Unequal Pay for Women in White House

“Good morning, Valerie,” Fiorina said, speaking to Jarrett on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “I think, certainly, every woman on this panel and every woman across the nation agrees that equal pay for equal work is absolutely required. I also think it’s just a fact that laws exist on the books today, and if a woman is being discriminated against because of her gender, she should use the full extent of that law. I am struck by the fact the president hasn’t really led in this regard. He’s not paying women equally by his own measures in his own White House. And I am also struck by the fact that the single greatest impediment to equal pay for equal work is this seniority system, which pays not on merit, not on performance, but on time and grade. And who is it who supports the seniority system? Unions, government bureaucracies, the vast majority of constituencies that the Democratic party represents and who support the Democratic party. So why wouldn’t the White House take on the seniority system and say let’s pay women by merit and by their results? Because based on my own experience, in those scenarios, women will be paid equally.”

Megyn Kelly debunks “misleading hysteria” on the Hobby Lobby decision

Nancy Pelosi is using the Democratic playbook of using Fear to gin up support for left wing ideology, going as far as to demonize the Supreme Court in factually meritless extreme ways:

“We should be afraid of this court. That five guys should start determining what contraceptions are legal or not. … It is so stunning,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol.Pelosi said last week’s Supreme Court ruling that the birth control mandate under President Obama’s healthcare reform law is a violation of religious freedom was particularly egregious.

“That court decision was a frightening one,” she said. “That five men should get down to the specifics of whether a woman should use a diaphragm and she should pay for it herself or her boss. It’s not her boss’s business. His business is whatever his business is. But it’s not what contraception she uses.”

Megyn Kelly tears this fearmongering apart, fact by fact:

Further exposition of Nancy Pelosi’s comments, including Mrs Pelosi’s imaginary “illegalization of diaphrams” which would only affect 21 women in the entire Hobby Lobby workforce contained in this extended deconstruction from The Kelly File:

Jon Stewart helped spread the Hobby Lies as well, dutifully debunked by Kelly once again:

The myth of the “Tea Party” take-ver in Eric Cantors primary loss

No organized Tea Party groups were particularly vocal in their support of the man who beat Eric Cantor in his primary race, yet the leftist headlines can’t stop sirening the alarms of the “Tea Party” looming clouds. Surprise:

In fact, however, the tea party had nothing to do with Brat’s victory. Only the small, local tea party groups stand for anything anymore, but they’re as different from the media-recognized “tea party” as lay Catholics are from the Catholic bishops.

National tea party groups did not contribute dime one to Brat. Not Freedom Works, not Club for Growth, not the Tea Party Express, not Tea Party Patriots. They were too busy denouncing Sen. Mitch McConnell — who has consistently voted against amnesty.

As I have been warning you, the big, national tea party groups are mostly shysters and con-men raising money for their own self-aggrandizement. (Today, they’re blast-faxing “media availability” notices to television networks claiming credit for Brat’s victory.)

The Tea Party Express, for example, “represents” the views of ordinary Americans by supporting Chamber of Commerce demands for cheap labor through amnesty.

As Eric Hoffer said, “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.”

Nonetheless, the claim that Brat’s victory was a win for the tea party is everywhere — pushed with suspicious insistence by people who do not usually wish the Republican Party well. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schulz, for example, said: “Tonight’s result in Virginia settles the debate once and for all — the tea party has taken control of the Republican Party. Period.”

Liberals apparently want Brat’s victory to be seen as a win for the tea party, and not a defeat for amnesty.

Obama Administration sides with Big Business against your right to access content on Public Airwaves

Once again, the Obama administration backs Big Business against the rights of the people.

A service called Aereo allows people to access their free local broadcasts delivered over the public airwaves:

Subscribers in the cities Aereo serves pay a minimum of $8 a month. That gives them exclusive access to one of its thousands of dime-sized antennas that pick up free, local, over-the-air broadcasts. The company then streams the live programming in the same local market to subscribers’ Web-connected TVs, computers, or mobile devices.

Cool, right? The Democrats in power don’t think so.

The big boys came out today on the side of the broadcasters in their upcoming appearance in front of the Supreme Court in the Aereo case. The solicitor general’s office put the Obama administration solidly in the anti-Aereo camp with a 40-page amicus brief (read it here) filed with the SCOTUS today. The broadcasters say that Aereo infringes on their copyrights by streaming their over-the-air signals without licenses or compensation. Aereo says that it simply leases out antennas and technology that consumers can already use to watch broadcast TV for free.

If the Obama administration gets its way, it would create a legal precedent that could endanger the ability of consumers to store and access music or videos from cloud storage destinations such as Google Drive. The division:

The American Cable Association, Computer and Communications Industry Association, Consumer Electronics Association, Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union, Dish Network, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Engine Advocacy, Mozilla, Public Knowledge, and some small broadcasters all filed briefs backing Aereo.

Another hit to the middle class coming along depending on the Supreme Courts ruling on the Aereo case. As with Obamacare’s grant to insurance companies, the Obama administration is siding with the billion dollar corporations

Those against your right to access content on publicly owned airwaves through Aereo’s service include:

ASCAP, the Copyright Alliance, International Center for Law and Economics, Major League Baseball, National Association of Broadcasters, the NFL, SAG, Time Warner, Viacom, and the Washington Legal Foundation 

The actual plaintiffs in the case:

Disney (ABC and Disney Enterprises), CBS (CBS Broadcasting and CBS Studios), Comcast (NBCUniversal Media, NBC Studios, Universal Network Television, and Telemundo Network Group), WNJU, WNET and Thirteen Productions, Fox (Fox Television Stations, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp), WPIX, Univision (Univision Television Group and the Univision Network Limited Partnership), and the Public Broadcasting Service.

Big Media over the average citizen

The Obama administration is Aereo’s most powerful critic as the case approaches, with a brief submitted to the high court in March accusing the company of violating copyright law. A ruling against Aereo “need not threaten the legality of cloud computing,” the brief says, arguing that cloud-computing services providing access to legal content would be protected by law.

The brief comes from the office of Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Jr., though he recused himself, and the U.S. Copyright office.

The Daily Show’s “Passion and Intrigue on The Five”

Because Conservatives can take a joke, they are thoroughly enjoying The Daily Show’s dramatic one act play in tribute to the Fox News show The Five.

The Daily Show doesn’t hit humorously highlight accurate information or legitimate and logical points nearly as much as it’s viewers who use it as an actual news source think it does, but the imbalance of the Five is correct. The 5 panelists are indeed 4 Conservatives and 1 liberal. I don’t really understand the point they’re trying to make about Bob Beckel being a “Fox News Liberal” though. He’s not a fake Democrat. The casual nature of the show, as the segment is a display of, brings a lot of off the cuff comments from all the panelists. Singling out Beckel and relating it to his Democrat affiliation as if to say he is not a legitimate left-of-center pundit because of some non-political banter is nonsense.

The segment mocks the pretentiousness of liberal arts one-person play style performances while highlighting out of context clips from the show. It’s fun and funny.
