Here is an article by Bob Cesca from salon.com about the homeless segment O'Reilly and Jesse Watters did, Cesca said it was a sneering & self-righteous segment, where an O'Reilly producer accosted homeless people in NYC.
The other night on The O'Reilly Factor, host Bill O'Reilly aired a segment that's not only the most vile Fox News Channel segment ever -- which is saying a lot -- but it was also illustrative of why conservatives are both unfunny and increasingly unpopular.
On every possible level, it was inhumane, racially insensitive, cruel, self-satirical and, frankly, unchristian. Meanwhile, the host of the segment, O'Reilly's one-man goon squad Jesse Watters, appears to be completely unaffected by the fact that he publicly shamed and embarrassed human beings who are barely surviving at the lowest possible level of society.
As Salon initially wrote earlier this week, O'Reilly aired a report in which Watters trolled homeless people in Manhattan's Penn Station as a comment on the city's homelessness problem and, specifically, rules in the train station that forbid loitering and panhandling. Rather than interviewing Mayor Bill de Blasio or other city officials about the issue, Watters accosted an array of homeless men and women who happened to have been camped out in the train station.
It's difficult to fully articulate Watters tone of voice in words. Imagine a smarmy frat-boy, or better yet imagine David Spade's insufferable flight attendant character from SNL, but with less tact, restraint or heart. This attitude and tone of voice might be fine, I suppose, if Watters smart-ass attitude was aimed at the mayor or an arrogant Wall Street CEO, but when Watters uses it to badger homeless people who are literally fighting every day merely to survive, it only serves to amplify the hideousness by a factor of thousands.
Watters began by announcing that loitering, panhandling and sleeping on the floor are serious violations "that should get you kicked out, fined or thrown in jail."
Without going so far as to personally arrest homeless people, Watters went around and basically threatened them, all but outright saying that they should be tossed in prison. Again, we're talking about homeless people here.
Questioning one homeless woman, Watters asked with that smug, snotty attitude, "You live here?" Then, "You sleep here, too?" The woman finally and bashfully replied, Yes.
Watters continued by channeling a haughty assistant principal who just nabbed a few eighth graders smoking behind the cafeteria: "Are you allowed to sleep here?"
Watters went on to browbeat several other people, including a man who was barely coherent, requiring subtitles for air, about whether the authorities have tried to boot him out of the station. And then it got worse. Watters made a point of emphasizing how several of the interviewees were on welfare and Medicaid, as a too-hamfisted way of highlighting how even though they have incomes they're still living in the station, scaring tourists, and making white people uncomfortable.
Indeed, just on the heels of the welfare question, Watters harassed two men about their drinking habits -- a clever means of suggesting that government money is being wasted by layabout homeless people to buy beer and rum.
Watters asked one man, "Do you think you need help with your drinking?" The man replied, No. Then Watters pointed at the man's front pants pocket, "Do you have rum in your pocket right there?" Again, all in that insinuating, privileged, superior tone of voice.
The segment ended with Watters interviewing white suburban tourists who emphasized how they've been allegedly groped or bothered by homeless people in the station. Because, yes, we have to totally protect the relatively wealthy white people from the unwashed boozers or else.
There was an overall tone of look at these mumbling drunken black people living off the government teat (snicker, snicker). In a sane and decent world, Watters would be swiftly driven off television for this.
Instead, based on his interactions on Twitter, the only thing that seems to have phased him was a negative remark about his suit, buried in a sea of #tcot kudos. For most of us, it'd be difficult to sell out our integrity and sense of morality for the sake of a gig with the O'Reilly show. But Watters owns his slimy self-righteousness like a champ.
He just doesn't care that the point of his latest segment was to literally take away shelter from people who have nothing. Because in his sociopathic universe, that's entertainment.
It reminds me of the ongoing meme about how there's very few conservative funny people. This video, in addition to being just plain cruel, is a salient reminder of exactly why: Conservatives punch down.
And punching down is neither funny nor endearing, except among other assholes.
In the simplest terms, it's unfair and it's mean. But being unfair and mean is Watters entire career. He exists among a series of conservative media stooges who never hesitate to attack noncombatants -- those who exist outside the political debate. That includes dead children like Trayvon Martin, who was mercilessly smeared and dissected by the conservative entertainment complex after he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.
As for Watters, here's just a sampling of the civilians he's accosted over the years (via ThinkProgress):
Homeless Veterans, 1/31/08: O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters confronts the group outside of Fox News headquarters as they try to deliver a petition to O'Reilly.
Helen Jones-Kelley, Director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, 11/6/08: O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters follows Jones-Kelley -- after she refused to talk to him -- to a fire station, where a police chief intervenes to stop the harassment.
Jenna Kern, Member of the Unitarian Universalist Church, 8/21/08: O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters confronts Kern in her driveway outside of her home.
Rev. Michael Pfleger, Catholic Priest, 4/3/08: O'Reilly producer Porter Berry confronts Pfleger outside of his church.
Dr. George Garcia, Boulder High School Superintendent, 5/29/07: O'Reilly producer Jesse Watters confronts Garcia on a wooded road away from his school.
You will be hard-pressed to find this kind of bullying and punching down from high profile talkers anywhere else in the American political discourse. In the absence of integrity, the last resort of a mindless posse is to target defenseless bystanders.
Sadly, as the far-right becomes increasingly self-satirical and shrink-wrapped inside its own bubble, this will get worse as long as it continues to sell. And the mob loves it, so homeless people, and in too many cases children, continue to be targets of these thugs.
The ultimate irony is that the network and the television show that endlessly screech about the "War On Christmas" and the "War On Judeo-Christian Values" aired a segment Monday night that would likely prompt Jesus himself to hurl his television out the window.
O'Reilly Dishonest About Publishers Weekly Not Reviewing Killing Reagan
By: Steve - July 4, 2015 - 9:00am
What a shocker, Bill O'Reilly put his spin on an issue and left out almost all the facts, case in point, the so-called dismissal of his book review, even though he never submitted a title for the book, and Reagan was not killed, so the book makes no sense.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has called Bill O'Reilly "a book salesman with a TV show." Though Ailes isn't known for understating things, this particular judgment appears a bit mild, if last weeks edition of The O'Reilly Factor is any indication. It combined chest-beating self-congratulation with chest-beating self-promotion of the sort only possible on a show with no adult supervision.
O'Reilly set himself up for a grand complaint, saying this: "Case in point, Publishers Weekly magazine, which ignored one of the biggest books of the year -- the upcoming Killing Reagan -- in its fall preview edition last week," said O'Reilly, referring to the upcoming book with Martin Dugard on the 40th president (Henry Holt & Co.; release date: Sept. 22).
His argument: Publishers Weekly dissed "Killing Reagan" for ideological reasons, as the staff of the publication is heavily liberal. Given the spectacular sales performance of last year's O'Reilly-Dugard collaboration, Killing Patton, the failure to include Killing Reagan is inexplicable, charged O'Reilly.
Not trusting O'Reilly to faithfully convey the position of Publishers Weekly, the Erik Wemple Blog contacted Publishers Weekly. Spokesman Jim Milliot told us that the magazine received 11,753 submissions for the fall announcements issue and included just 750 of them in the preview -- meaning that about 11,000 other authors are also upset with Publishers Weekly.
Milliot said this: "What we do is try to make it a range of titles. We leave out lots and lots of books."
As to the charge that Publishers Weekly propagated this grand omission for ideological reasons, the publication issued a statement last week, after O'Reilly first aired his gripes against the magazine.
"For the record, we are fine with Ronald Reagan, and also are happy to know that our readers are aware of his existence and presidency. We've reviewed six books about Reagan and the Reagan era since January 2014."
And take note of this, they have reviewed all of the O'Reilly books in the past, this is the first one they did not review, a fact O'Reilly never once reported.
Milliot: "We cover books not politics." In all, Publishers Weekly has reviewed 10 O'Reilly products over the years, including audiobooks, says Milliot. "Killing Reagan" will be the fifth in O'Reilly's Killing series -- and it's stretching things a bit, too, considering that Reagan was not killed.
In other words, they are tired of reviewing all these lame "killing someone" books O'Reilly puts out, especially when the person the book is about was not killed. They reviewed all the rest of them, but when they skip one book O'Reilly calls them a bunch of biased liberals, when they were ok after all the other reviews.
One other thing: Milliot says that Publishers Weekly received from Holt a book description with a certain omission. As shared by Milliot, here's "all the information" submitted by the publisher to the magazine:
HOLTBold text added to highlight a problem for Publishers Weekly. "That was a major reason why it wasn't included," says Milliot. "We really strive to get books from all over the universe, but if you don't submit the actual name of the book, that is a big strike against you."
Patricia Eisemann, a spokeswoman for Holt, also said this: "Any embargoed book is held in the data base early on as 'untitled.' The book was not announced until the last week in May."
Those are all the facts in the story, 99% of which O'Reilly never reported. If you listen to him, they did not review his book because they are liberals that do not like him. When in fact, they reviewed all his other books, and only left this one out because he did not submit a title and it was a killing book about someone who was not killed. Now you have all the facts, not the garbage O'Reilly spewed out.
Macy's Drops All Donald Trump Merchandise
By: Steve - July 3, 2015 - 11:30am
So while almost everyone is slamming Trump, from NBC to Univision to Macy's, for his ignorant and wrong comments about illegal immigrants, O'Reilly and Fox are defending him and giving him a platform to spew out his garbage.
Macy's has reacted to Donald Trump's racist comments about Mexicans and Latinos by dropping all Trump merchandise from their stores.
Macy's explained their decision in a statement, "Macy's is a company that stands for diversity and inclusion," the retailer said in a statement Wednesday. "We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form. We welcome all customers, and respect for the dignity of all people is a cornerstone of our culture. We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico.
We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation. In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy's values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump men's wear collection, which has been sold at Macy's since 2004."
Donald Trump has been dumped by NBC and has seen NBC and Univision cancel their contracts to televise the Trump owned beauty pageants. Trump is in second place in the Republican presidential polls, but the latest CNN/ORC poll shows Jeb Bush opening up a seven-point lead on the blowhard billionaire.
Trump is threatening to sue everyone in sight because he is losing big money, but it looks like his racism is finally catching up to him. It would be difficult for NBC and Macy's ever to go back into business with Trump without creating a public firestorm.
Donald Trump has been throwing racists bombs from the sidelines for years, but he made the mistake of running for president. When Trump became a presidential candidate the media started to take his racist ramblings seriously. It was one thing for Trump the racist to demand Obama's birth certificate while drumming up attention for his reality TV show, but the stakes went up exponentially when Donald Trump announced that he was a candidate for president.
His racist rhetoric is the same, but now there is a price to be paid for his behavior. The TV billionaire is now toxic, and what we are witnessing is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.
Ted Cruz Is So Stupid Even Fox News Is Slamming Him
By: Steve - July 3, 2015 - 11:00am
This guy is an idiot and a fool that will never be the President. When the Supreme Court ruled that bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was one of the most vocal Republicans throwing a hissy fit because our Constitution didn't support his bigotry and ignorance.
Since the decision he's now called for a complete ripping up of a huge part of our Constitution to install a process by which Supreme Court Justices would be up for potential removal every eight years by the American voter. Yes, Cruz's insane solution for making the court less political is to interject even more politics into the process.
During an interview with Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host asked Cruz about his ridiculous plan and what would happen if the American voters were to vote out conservative justices like Scalia, Roberts and Thomas who might then be replaced with liberals if our president were a Democrat.
And of course Cruz avoided answering that question, instead choosing to spout off more insane talking points. Befuddled by the lack of common sense Cruz was showing about this issue, Kelly quoted Alexander Hamilton, who called the current configuration of the court essential to our Constitution, then flat-out asked Cruz, "Now you want to rewrite the Constitution in response to a couple of decisions you don't like?"
Cruz brushed off that question as well, turning to quotes made by Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent, claiming that the marriage ruling completely disregards our Constitution.
That's actually an argument I've heard made by many Republicans, that somehow our Constitution defines marriage as between a man and a woman -- even though there's not a single mention of marriage anywhere in our Constitution.
I'm not sure how a court can "Constitutionally redefine" something that was never defined by our Constitution in the first place. Cruz then complained that the process by which we are able to hold Supreme Court Justices accountable is inadequate. You know, the process that was set up by our Founding Fathers.
He literally tried to argue that the people who wrote and approved Article Three of our Constitution, and the process by which we could remove a Supreme Court Justice, would be against the very system they created. It's just ridiculous.
How do you use the Founding Fathers as your defense for something by arguing against the very thing they wrote and created? This is what I mean when I say he's delusional, because there's no place on earth where that argument makes sense.
But the best comment of the entire interview came when he said, "Who in their right mind would design a system where every major public policy issue of the day is decided not by the people, not by the Constitution, not by elected representatives but by nine elite lawyers in Washington D.C."
Well, to answer his question as to who would design such a system: That would be our Founding Fathers!
The Supreme Court does not change anything, they interpret laws that are already passed to determine whether or not they're Constitutional -- which is what they're supposed to do. The Supreme Court cannot rule on anything that's not brought to them through our judicial system. Which is exactly how same-sex marriage ultimately became legal in this country.
These bans were challenged, overturned in nearly every lower court throughout our country, which then brought them to our Supreme Court where they were ultimately ruled unconstitutional by the highest court in our land. That's how our Constitution is supposed to work.
All this interview equated to was Ted Cruz whining and complaining about the fact that once again our Constitution ruled on the side of freedom, liberty and equality instead of the ignorance and injustice, that him and many other conservatives support, including Bill O'Reilly, who agrees with Cruz.
Ana Kasparian Hammers O’Reilly For Segment Demonizing NYC Homeless
By: Steve - July 3, 2015 - 10:00am
Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola ripped Fox's Jesse Watters on Wednesday for his racist O'Reilly Factor report casting aspersions at New York City's homeless population, calling him out for his on-camera antipathy toward the black people he interviewed for the segment.
"Jesse Watters is just a deplorable human being," Kasparian said. "I have no respect for him whatsoever."
The segment, which aired on Monday, showed Watters interviewing homeless people around Penn Station.
Iadarola noted that, all of the homeless people featured on camera were black, the only white people Watters featured were commuters "inconvenienced" by their presence, even though there were white homeless people.
"I've always had a little bit of sympathy for him, because he has to spend his days with Bill O'Reilly," Iadarola said. "But I've lost even that little bit of sympathy."
Kasparian, a Raw Story contributor, argued that Watters on-camera behavior illustrated the difference between conservatives and liberals.
"Liberals genuinely believe that this country is about helping one another out and doing it for the greater good," she said. "Conservatives are like 'screw everyone, we have no interest in helping anyone. I'm only looking out for myself and my family.' I have no interest in being part of that group."
At the end of the Factor segment, O'Reilly and Watters attempted to blame their findings on Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration, with Watters saying, "plenty of people are being attacked" without citing any proof, so much for facts.
"All this was was a Bill de Blasio smear campaign at the expense of homeless people living at a train station," Kasparian said. "That's all that segment was about. Fox News is garbage. Garbage."
And what was most odd was the timing of the segment, with all the news about gay marriage and Obamacare, presidential elections, Donald Trump, the economy, jobs, etc. O'Reilly decided to do a full segment on homeless people in a New York train station.
Which only effects people in New York who ride the trains, the rest of the country could care less. This is what O'Reilly decided to do with a national tv news show, which was ridiculous.
It was nothing more than a cheap shot at the Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, by the biased right-wing hack Bill O'Reilly, a total cheap shot. The same cheap shots O'reilly complains about when NBC, ABC, or CBS do against Fox, then he does the very same thing.
Bill O'Reilly Is The Dumbest Right-Wing Idiot On Earth
By: Steve - July 2, 2015 - 11:30am
Now the insane O'Reilly is comparing giving equal rights to gay people to a baker having to bake a cake for a Nazi group. Which is the dumbest and most ridiculous comparison I have ever seen. Because gay people do not choose to be gay, you are either gay or you are not gay, and the Nazi groups did not have their constitutional rights violated by a baker not making them a cake.
O'Reilly is just a flat out far right loon, and this one segment proves it. In fact, after this segment he can never claim he is not a far right stooge again, because he clearly is. He can also never again claim he supports gay people, because he clearly does not. He is a pro-life religious bible thumping idiot, just like Hannity, Limbaugh, etc.
Here is a partial transcript of the anti-gay insanity by O'Reilly.
O'REILLY: The butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker, they all have to cater weddings now, gay weddings,Julie, as you know, or they can get punished by the civil authorities. Are you okay with that?
JULIE ROGINSKY: I am okay with that because they're a place of public accommodation.
O'REILLY: Are you okay with a baker saying that he's not going to make any goods for a Nazi party rally?
ROGINSKY: I am okay with a baker saying that if he's going to do straight marriages --
O'REILLY: No, no, no. Answer my question. Nazi party comes in, American Nazi party, they're having a picnic, and they do, and they want the baker to bake them a bunch of cakes and the baker says get the hell out of here. I'm not having --
ROGINSKY: Very different.
O'REILLY: Wait a minute. They come in, they are known national socialists, they want a cake. The baker says, 'no, my belief system is that you people are wrong. I'm not baking you a cake.' Do they have to bake them a cake?
ROGINSKY: But Bill, Nazis are not a protected class. I believe that gays and lesbians should be a protected class. Right now, they are not.
O'REILLY: They are not a protected class now.
ROGINSKY: They are not, but they should be.
O'REILLY: So the baker, should he have to bake the cake for the Nazis?
ROGINSKY: No, because you can choose to be a Nazi, you cannot choose to be gay or straight.
O'REILLY: This speaks to individual liberty to me, and I'm not comparing, and I know the websites, the far-left critics will do this. [crosstalk] Wait wait, I have to get this out, because I'm going to be attacked, they're going to say I'm comparing gays to Nazis. That's clearly not what I'm doing. It's an individual liberty question.
Earth to Bill O'Reilly, Nazis did not have their constitutional rights violated, that was decided by the Supreme Court. Your comparison is insane and makes no sense, it's comparing apples to oranges instead of apples to apples. And to be honest, it's an argument a 2 year old would make, a 2 year old with brain damage, because it is just stupid.
O'Reilly Ignores Justice Department Report On Ferguson Police
By: Steve - July 2, 2015 - 11:00am
The report shows that Ferguson police violated peoples civil rights and made things worse with their tactics, and as expected the so-called journalist Bill O'Reilly totally ignored it, even though he promised to report on the report when it came out.
Almost one year ago, the shooting death of Michael Brown sparked a wave of protests over the teen's death and the general mistreatment of black lives in Ferguson. Police responded with riot gear and tear gas, leaving many demonstrators wounded — including an 8-year-old boy.
Riots that O'Reilly and everyone at Fox opposed, saying they were wrong and unjustified to protest.
Now, a DOJ document obtained by the Post-Dispatch faults Ferguson police for their aggressive response to protesters last August. In a summary of its third Ferguson report, which is soon to be released, the DOJ contends officers from Ferguson, St. Louis County, St. Louis and Missouri Highway Patrol "violated citizens right to assembly and free speech, as determined by a U.S. federal court injunction."
According to the document, "vague and arbitrary orders, combined with a highly elevated tactical response, including the use of military-grade equipment, resulted in limited options for a measured, strategic approach. "
For instance, several tactics exacerbated tensions during the uprising, such as using dogs to intimidate protesters, using rifle sights on armed vehicles to watch over civilians, and throwing tear gas at demonstrators who had no means of fleeing the scene.
Tactical operations used during the day time were unjustified, and the four law enforcement agencies that responded to the protests used inconsistent and ineffective methods to de-escalate crowds. Officers with varied levels of training were ineffectively controlled, and Ferguson officials further inflamed civil unrest by releasing details about Brown's shooting too slowly.
On the flip side, the report says officers removed their name tags because they were not prepared for the volume and severity of personal threats on themselves and their families, which created additional emotional stress for those involved in the Ferguson response. This includes threats of violence against family members and fraud associated with technology based attacks.
That stress caused poor judgment and unsatisfactory officer performance.
After the 200-page report is released, the DOJ will release a fourth report about the St. Louis County Police Department.
The summary's release comes three months after the St. Louis Police, St. Louis County Police, and Missouri Highway Patrol settled a lawsuit filed by six Ferguson protesters, agreeing to restrict tear gas and other chemical agents used against demonstrators. Soon thereafter, leaked documents revealed the Missouri National Guard used military language to describe protesters, dubbing them "enemy forces and adversaries."
The events in Ferguson inspired an executive order by President Obama that effectively ended the transfer of certain military-grade equipment to local police departments, including weaponized aircraft or vehicles, firearms or ammunition of .50-caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets or camouflage uniforms.
"We've seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they're an occupying force, as opposed to a force that's part of the community that's protecting them and serving them," he said.
Where is Bill O'Reilly on this story of police abuse and misconduct, hiding under his desk.
O'Reilly's Ridiculous Comments About Supreme Court Gay Marriage Ruling
By: Steve - July 2, 2015 - 10:00am
Get this, he says he supports gay people, and that he could care less about gay marriage, then he slams the court when they rule in favor of gay marriage, what an idiot. He even called it an ideology problem, when the vote was passed with Roberts who is a conservative.
O'Reilly: "We Have An Activist Supreme Court," Unable "To Put Ideology Aside" In Recent Rulings
But when they rule in a way he likes (that goes down 5 to 4) he never says that, he only complains about court rulings when it does not go the way he wants it to. And if he actually supported gay rights, why the hell is he so mad?
O'Reilly is a biased fraud, and a massive hypocrite.
O'Reilly: Right Now, We Don't Have A Fair Legal System
Why? Because you did not like the ruling, what a joke. The court did what was right, they ruled state bans on gay marriage are unconstitutional, and you can not do a thing about it. Face it moron, you are a far-right loon that is just mad the court ruled in a way you do not like.
Partisan Right-Wing Hack O'Reilly Defends Clown Donald Trump
By: Steve - July 1, 2015 - 11:00am
As expected the right-wing stooge Bill O'Reilly defended the idiot Donald Trump, over his stupid remarks about illegal immigrants.
O'Reilly: Maybe He Was Inartfully "Highlighting A Problem. That Is Harming The Nation"
O'Reilly: "I Don't Think Donald Trump Was Trying To Demonize All Mexican People"
Fact: Donald Trump is an idiot who said the mexicans coming to America are all criminals and rapists, when in fact, 99.9% of them just want a job, and they have lower crime rates than Americans do.
Trump just said that to get votes from the far-right racists in the Republican party, and it worked, he is now 2nd in the polls behind Jeb Bush, and O'Reilly defended his partisan garbage.
Jon Stewart Slams Conservatives Following Marriage Equality Ruling
By: Steve - July 1, 2015 - 10:00am
When it comes to addressing big issues going on in this country, I'm not sure anyone in the national media does it better than Jon Stewart does, and he definitely did not disappoint on Monday night's show.
He started off by playing an audio clip of Ted Cruz calling the Supreme Court's decisions on both the Affordable Care Act and same-sex marriage as "24 of the darkest hours in our nation's history."
"Truly, Voldemort has risen," Stewart said mocking Cruz. "And the living will envy the dead."
He then moved on to Republicans who seemed upset, not over the Court making this decision -- but any decision. Stewart focused on comments made by the far-right GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee who said that our Founding Fathers did not create a nation where five "unelected black robes" could have this sort of power. "Then why did they put that article in the Constitution?" Stewart asked with a befuddled look on his face.
Because the Founding Fathers did exactly that, the Supreme Court is part of the constitution, which is why Huckabee should never, and never will be the President.
Though he saved the best for last, playing a part of an interview Donald Trump had with Jake Tapper. The CNN host asked Trump how he would respond to a gay person who might call him a hypocrite for saying he supports traditional marriage, yet he's on his third marriage -- a point Trump conceded is valid.
"Yes they do. That's the point," Stewart said. "You Republicans are not gonna win the marriage equality fight because even a man who's pathologically disposed to not understand other people's points of view, unless it is also labeled Trump, even he gets it."
Then in the second segment, Stewart absolutely crushed Justice Antonin Scalia's hypocrisy, even suggesting that last week might have broke the extremely conservative judge following several odd, rambling passages in both his same-sex marriage and Affordable Care Act dissents.
Though Stewart focused most of his attention to the part of Scalia's dissent where he claimed the same-sex marriage ruling went against the will of the voters, yet made sure to point out that Scalia voted against the Affordable Care Act (twice) -- a law that was passed by the Congress and president that were elected by the American people.
He also pointed out how Scalia voted for Citizen's United which went against the "will of the people" who support campaign finance reform, then voted to essentially strip racial protections from the Voting Rights Act, which was another ruling that went against the "will of the people."
In other words, Scalia used the argument that the court legalizing same-sex marriage went against the "will of the people," yet that's something he's walked all over plenty of times during his time as a Supreme Court Justice. Both segments are definitely worth watching.
Stewart once again did a fantastic job of shredding the idiocy and hypocrisy many on the right have shown, this time following the Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage and the Affordable Care Act.
Idiot Paul Ryan Still Thinks Republicans Can Stop Obamacare
By: Steve - June 30, 2015 - 11:00am
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) delivered a new moment of Republican failure when he was asked on CBS's Face The Nation what Republicans can do realistically to stop Obamacare.
Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan has been a consistent critic of the Affordable Care Act. And he joins us now from Janesville, Wisconsin. Mr. Ryan, is the president right? He says Obamacare is now the law of the land, and that’s that.
REP. PAUL RYAN (R), WISCONSIN: I don’t agree with that, John. I think this law is going to collapse under its own weight.
I'm as motivated as ever before to repeal and replace this law, and that's what we're working on. What I really worry about, John, with this ruling is the grave injustice it does to the rule of law. I mean, so much for calling balls and strikes. I think Justice Roberts is now counting foul balls as home runs.
And, look, I think that they have done a great disservice to the country, because they're rewriting laws at the bench. We had three constructionists on the court, when we should have had five. And, so, yes, I'm very shocked at this ruling, but it does not deter us from actually delivering on what we really want, which is affordable care for everybody, and let people choose what they want to buy.
DICKERSON: But, as a practical matter, you're going to work against it, but what can you do now?
RYAN: Well, as a practical matter, it means we need to win the 2016 election, and with a Republican president in 2017 replace this law with one that actually works, one that people actually like.
Notice the pause, stumble, and well before Ryan began his non-answer to the question. Paul Ryan's unspoken answer was that Republicans can't do anything to stop Obamacare while President Obama is in office. Republicans have to hope that they win the presidential election to fulfill their dream of taking access to healthcare away from millions of Americans.
During the interview, Ryan later repeated the meaningless gibberish that Republicans are working on their own health care plan that will replace Obamacare, but he debunked his own talking point one week ago when he admitted that Republicans have no plan of their own that can replace Obamacare.
A long time ago John Boehner put Paul Ryan in charge of coming up with the Republican plan that will replace Obamacare, and since that time, the Congressman has done nothing but put his foot in his mouth when asked where is the Republican plan.
Rep. Ryan never answered the question because there is nothing that Republicans can do. Obama's victory in the Supreme Court was crushing. The Affordable Care Act is growing in popularity by the month, and with President Obama planning to push to enroll even more Americans, Republicans are completely screwed.
More Liberal O'Reilly Lies Debunked
By: Steve - June 30, 2015 - 10:00am
Here is something you will never see reported on the Factor, or Fox News, because it proves they are lying to you about Democratic economic policies.
An annual CNBC scorecard that rates each state on 60 measures of competitiveness finds that the Democratic run Minnesota is the best state in the country for business in 2015.
The same study found that while Republican-controlled states like Kansas and Arizona experienced sharp declines in their business competitiveness, Minnesota Democratic Governor Mark Dayton's economic miracle has turned his state into the nation's best state for businesses.
When Mark Dayton took office in 2011 he inherited a 6.2 billion dollar deficit from his Republican predecessor, Tim Pawlenty. Four years later, after passing a huge tax increase on wealthy Minnesotans, the state now has over a 2 billion dollar surplus, and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
Dayton's Minnesota is the antithesis of Sam Brownback's failed supply-side experiment in Kansas and Scott Walker's union busting disaster in Wisconsin.
While the CNBC study acknowledged that Minnesota's business tax rates were relatively high, they found that other factors like a strong education system and a good quality of life, offset high taxes in making the state more business-friendly than many other states with lower corporate tax rates.
In discussing the scorecard, even CNBC's conservative analysts credited Mark Dayton for Minnesota's success even though they acknowledged that his approach was not what economists or corporate leaders usually label business-friendly policies. The article reads in part:
But Minnesota doesn't just stumble into the top spot by accident. The state's path to the top is marked by a carefully crafted strategy by Gov. Mark Dayton, the first Democrat to hold the office in two decades. The hallmark of his plan is something most governors seeking to win the hearts of business would never dream of: a big tax increase.The tax increase on the wealthy worked. By increasing the state's revenue and putting more money in the pockets of ordinary Minnesotans, Dayton's economic plan spurred economic growth and reduced unemployment. The healthy economy that came about in the wake of those tax increases not only benefited workers, it also in turn proved good for business.
At some point supply-side loyalists will have to stop ignoring Minnesota's economic success, and come to terms with the fact that the best place to do business in America isn't where the taxes on the rich have been cut , but rather where they have been raised.
Minnesota is a shining example of how Democratic policies can help everyone prosper. Now if only the rest of America would start paying attention, instead of continuing to be hoodwinked by the empty promises of the GOP's trickle down fantasies, that more often than not, bring about economic failure.
The Facts About Bill O'Reilly And Gay Marriage
By: Steve - June 29, 2015 - 11:00am
On November 18, 2003, Bill O'Reilly dedicated the "Talking Points Memo" portion of his Fox News show to criticizing the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, which had just made a historic ruling determining that the state could not deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
So in reality, O'Reilly is just like every other right-wing stooge that is opposed to gay marriage. People like him claim they do not care, and claim they support freedowm and the constitution, then they try to tell gay people they can not get married, and tell women they can not have an abortion.
They are religious pro-life hypocrites, and that is a fact.
O'Reilly claimed that while he personally "couldn't care less about gay marriage, if judges continued to "impose their views on everybody else ... the core values of this country will be changed dramatically:
O'REILLY: Personally I couldn't care less about gay marriage. If Tommy and Vinny or Joanie and Samantha want to get married, I don't see it as a threat to me or anybody else. But according to a poll by the Pew Research Center, only 32 percent of Americans favor gay marriage. And the will of the people must be taken into account here.Right there is proof that O'Reilly lets his right-wing bias and his religious views cloud his thinking and his positions on the issues. He says marriage is not a right, and he is wrong, because the constitution says everyone is equal and they have equal rights, so if you block gays from marriage you are violating their constitutional rights, which is what the court ruled.
It took 12 years, but the U.S. Supreme Court has now ruled, in Obergefell v. Hodges, that state bans on same-sex marriage violate the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The decision is the culmination of a culture war saga that saw marriage equality evolve from a controversial thought experiment into a popularly-supported civil rights struggle.
That evolution was reflected in nearly all facets of the American public. As public opinion on same-sex relationships and homosexuality shifted, so too did media depictions of the LGBT community, both mirroring and reinforcing the normalization of same-sex relationships in the public's imagination.
In popular culture and mainstream news reporting, the fight for same-sex marriage has increasingly been presented as the story of a marginalized group fighting for civil rights and equal treatment, much to the dismay of anti-LGBT conservatives.
But while most major media outlets kept pace with the public's evolution on same-sex marriage, O'Reilly and Fox News held out, popularizing conservatives most dire warnings about marriage equality. As public support for marriage equality grew, the network shifted its focus - largely bowing out of debates over same-sex marriage in order to gin up right-wing fears about the threat that LGBT equality might soon pose to religious liberty and individual freedoms.
Though he claimed he "couldn't care less" about the issue, O'Reilly -- Fox News most influential television personality -- has been the network's loudest voice against same-sex marriage, bolstering his "culture warrior" credentials by peddling bogus horror stories about the dangers of marriage equality.
In the years following the Massachusetts decision, O'Reilly claimed that same-sex marriage would cause a decline in marriage rates, clog the court system, possibly lead to people marrying goats, ducks, and dolphins, and negatively impact the children of same-sex couples.
To O'Reilly, the push for same-sex marriage was part of a broader secularist plot to marginalize Christianity and abolish the institution of marriage altogether.
On his radio show in 2005, O'Reilly argued that the Founding Fathers hadn't addressed gay marriage in the Constitution, Because back then, if you were gay, they hung you:
O'REILLY: You know, the Founding Fathers didn't write anything into the Constitution about gay marriage. Because back then, if you were gay, they hung you. So -- you couldn't get married because they put you in the rack.Earth to Bill O'Reilly, the founding Fathers had no problem with slavery either, that did not mean it was still ok to own slaves, and now we do not allow slavery, so that argument you made is weak and pathetic.
In late 2010, U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker overturned California's Proposition 8, dealing a major blow to conservatives who had fought tooth-and-nail to mobilize religious opposition to same-sex marriage in a traditionally liberal state.
Fox News contributor Liz Trotta decried the media's positive coverage of the decision, suggesting that Walker had a "vested interest" in striking down the ban because he is gay - a sentiment echoed elsewhere on Fox News.
O'Reilly similarly decried the decision as an example of "judicial activism."
A few months later, in early 2011, the Obama administration's Justice Department announced that it would no longer defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court. The announcement triggered an apoplectic reaction from Fox News, led by Megyn Kelly, who invited NOM's Gallagher to condemn the Obama administration and push falsehoods about what the announcement would mean.
Mike Huckabee, then the host of his own Fox News show, argued that marriage equality posed a threat to "stable society."
Then New York made history by becoming the largest state in the country to recognize same-sex marriage through a legislative vote, more than doubling the number of people living in marriage equality states. It was a devastating loss for anti-gay conservative groups, who poured millions of dollars into unsuccessfully pressuring a handful of moderate Republican lawmakers to oppose same-sex marriage.
Rather than evolve with the American public in its treatment of same-sex couples and the LGBT community, Fox News has just tinkered with its messaging strategy, occasionally paying lip service to the idea of same-sex marriage while drumming up a "religious persecution" narrative that's served to seriously undercut the advancement of substantive LGBT equality.
It's a smart pivot for a network that's always smudged the line between real journalism and right-wing propaganda. And after Obergefell, Fox's attempts to depict the LGBT community as sore winners will likely be even more prevalent.
Many years have passed since O'Reilly first turned his attention to the looming specter of same-sex marriage, but Fox News role as a bulwark against the advancement of LGBT equality remains largely unchanged.
In other words, O'Reilly was opposed to gay marriage then, and he is today too, he just lies about it sometimes, depending on what the polling on the issue shows, and depending on who the guest is at the time. I would bet my life on it that in private O'Reilly slams the gays and the blacks, and wishes we could go back to the early days when whites had total power and the gays were in the closet.
Jon Stewart Slams Dishonest Confederate Flag Supporters
By: Steve - June 29, 2015 - 10:00am
Last week Jon Stewart had some choice words for those who continue to defend the Confederate flag, essentially accusing them of trying to downplay racism.
Which is what Bill O'Reilly did, he defended the flag supporters by saying their is a history of states rights and bravery represented in the flag, which is bull and he knows it.
Stewart pointed out that many of its defenders claim the Civil War was about states rights, not slavery. He also went after those who claim it's about Southern pride and heritage, saying that their ancestors might have had other redeeming qualities, but that doesn;t negate the primary reason why the Civil War happened -- slavery.
"It'd be like saying you support flying the Nazi flag because you're proud of their robust anti-smoking agenda," Stewart said, showing a piece of Nazi-era anti-smoking propaganda. "But that wasn't really their thing."
Though The Daily Show host did point out that it’s becoming more difficult to find anyone in the mainstream who will defend the Confederate flag, using a clip of a representative from the Sons of Confederate Veterans discussing how he feels taking down the flag is a slippery slope to removing monuments and changing street names that honor members of the Confederacy.
"Let me explain to you how the slippery slope argument normally works: usually when you do the slippery slope argument, you like to end it in something bad," Stewart said. "You don't go like, 'The next thing, black children don't have to go to schools named after men who wouldn't have allowed them to learn how to read.'"
He also went on to mock Fox News contributor Todd Starnes for suggesting that the next flag that will be targeted will be the U.S. flag. Which is just insane, because the U.S. flag represents America and freedom, not slavery and racism in the south.
It's taken 150 years to get to this point -- and even still it really took one of the worst racially-motivated terrorist attacks this country has seen in a very long time to finally ignite a movement that's been long overdue. That flag should have been taken down 50 years ago, but at least they are finally doing it now.
Fox & Friends Caught Lying Again About Hillary Clinton
By: Steve - June 28, 2015 - 11:00am
Fox & Friends co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Steve Doocy baselessly speculated that 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would remain silent on South Carolina's Confederate flag out of deference to her husband's actions as governor of Arkansas.
However, Clinton said in a 2007 interview with the Associated Press that South Carolina should remove the flag from its statehouse grounds.
On the June 22 edition of Fox News Fox & Friends, Hasselbeck pointed out that while most of the GOP presidential field has weighed in on South Carolina's decision to continue flying the Confederate flag on its state house grounds in the wake of last week's mass shooting in a black, historically activist church in Charleston, Hillary Clinton has not yet made a statement.
She speculated that Clinton's silence may be "because Bill Clinton, her husband, signed a law honoring the Confederacy in Arkansas and about the flag's design in 1987," while he was governor of Arkansas, going on to say, "She's just in a tough spot, to have to defend her husband's position back then, right now in light of what happened in South Carolina."
However, as the Clinton campaign pointed out, Clinton unequivocally told the Associated Press in 2007 that she would "like to see it removed from the Statehouse grounds," saying,"I think about how many South Carolinians have served in our military and who are serving today under our flag and I believe that we should have one flag that we all pay honor to, as I know that most people in South Carolina do every single day."
And btw, Clinton was running for the Democratic presidential nomination at the time.
The Fox hosts also failed to note that while several of the 2016 GOP presidential candidates have made statements on the Confederate flag, none openly condemned it -- Scott Walker said the decision to fly the flag is a "state issue" and Marco Rubio said that "outsiders" should not tell South Carolina what to do.
Clinton has spoken about racism in the wake of the Charleston shooting, which claimed nine lives. Speaking on Saturday, she said, "Race remains a deep fault line in America. Millions of people of color still experience racism in their everyday lives."
Meanwhile, most of Fox News coverage of the shooting failed to take the shooter's clearly racist motivations seriously. On June 18, Doocy said it was extraordinary that the shooting would be called a hate crime. And on his radio program, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade wondered, "Is it about Christians? Is it about white-black? Is it about 'I hate South Carolina'?"
Ken Burns Has The True Facts About The Confederate Flag
By: Steve - June 27, 2015 - 11:00am
O'Reilly and his right-wing friends can spin their nonsense about the confederate flag all they want, but Ken Burns is telling you the real truth about it, something you do not get from O'Reilly or anyone at Fox News.
Ken Burns, the documentarian behind PBS's acclaimed The Civil War series, blasted the myth that the Confederate flag is not a symbol of racism and white supremacy during a Thursday appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe.
"I think what happens is that we build up over time the sense of an excuse about why it came," Burns said. "If you read … South Carolina's articles of secession in November -- after Lincoln's election of 1860 -- they don't mention states rights at all, and they also don't mention nullification. But they mention slavery over and over again."
He later added, "Those (Confederate) flags came in after Brown v. Board of Education. This is not about heritage. This is about resistance to civil rights."
Burns is demonstrating how the Confederate flag has always been a symbol against efforts by black Americans to gain equal rights. When South Carolina became the first state to secede after Lincoln's election, it explicitly singled out attempts to abolish slavery and grant rights to black Americans as "hostile to the South" and "destructive of its beliefs and safety."
And as Vox's Libby Nelson explained, Southerners used the flag to intimidate civil rights advocates and defend segregation. So while some dishonest right-wingers might not see the Confederate flag as a racist symbol, the truth is the flag's history is mired in racism.
More Good Economic News O'Reilly Has Totally Ignored
By: Steve - June 27, 2015 - 10:00am
The housing market is doing great, and O'Reilly ignored it, because it makes Obama look good and it shows his economic policies are working.
Sales of Existing U.S. Homes Increase to Highest Level Since 2009
Previously owned U.S. homes sold in May at the fastest pace since November 2009, driven by first-time buyers and indicating budding momentum in the residential real estate market.
Closings on existing properties, which usually occur a month or two after a contract is signed, rose 5.1 percent to a 5.35 million annualized rate, the National Association of Realtors reported Monday in Washington. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey called for a 5.26 million pace. The share of first-time buyers matched the highest level since September 2012.
Employment gains, rising incomes and still-cheap borrowing costs are combining to propel sales after a period of uneven demand from late 2014 through early this year. The prospect of higher interest rates as the Federal Reserve considers tighter monetary policy may be encouraging more Americans to take the homeownership plunge.
"Incomes are doing better and more people are working," said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities LLC in Stamford, Connecticut. Stanley correctly forecast May sales. "I would imagine we'll continue to see better demand from first-time buyers."
O'Reilly ignores this news because he is a right-wing hack who hates Obama, he claims Obama is a failure and the economy is in chaos, even though all the numbers prove him wrong, he still continues to lie about it because he can not admit he was wrong about Obama.
Supreme Court Rules State Bans On Same-Sex Marriage Are Unconstitutional
By: Steve - June 26, 2015 - 11:30am
And the right-wingers of course freaked out. In a 5 to 4 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that bans on same-sex marriage violate the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Fox's MacCallum: "What's To Prevent" Three People From Getting Married Now?
Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol: "Polygamy, Here We Come!"
HotAir.com's Ed Morrissey: Gay Marriage Decision Will Lead To "Challenges To Polygamy Bans."
Which is nonsense, because it is illegal to marry more than one person, or a dog, etc. so all that talk is pure right-wing garbage, and nothing will change, except gay people can now legally get married and in a year it will be a non-issue.
More insanity from the right-wing loons:
Breitbart.com's Nolte: Decision "Emboldens Gaystapo To Target ... Your Church" And Leaves "No Legal Argument Against Polygamy."
Fox's Starnes: "If You Think The Cultural Purge Over Southern Traditions Was Egregious -- Wait Until You See What They Do To Christians In America."
Mark Levin: "The Supreme Court Is Officially Nuts."
Powerline's John Hinderaker: "We Do Not Live In A Democracy."
Fox's Stuart Varney Suggests Decision Could Lead To Polygamy:
Fox's Erick Erickson: Ruling "Has Much To Do With The Semblance Of Normalcy. Those Who See Homosexuality As A Sin Must, Necessarily, Be Driven From The Town Square."
And that's not all, it goes on and on forever, every right-winger in America has gone crazy over this ruling, even though it was the correct ruling, and we all know it.
Desperate Ben Carson Finally Admits The Truth About Church Shooting
By: Steve - June 26, 2015 - 11:00am
I say desperate because his campaign is so bad he has to say and do something to try and get someone to support him, especially after all his top staffers quit on him.
Ben Carson Abandons Conservative Talking Points By Calling Racism Racism
In an op-ed piece that appeared in Monday's edition of USA Today, retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson pulled no punches in calling the South Carolina church massacre a racist act.
In the opinion piece, Carson implicitly criticized most of the other candidates in the Republican field for trying to downplay the racial component of the church shooting spree. Carson wrote:
Not everything is about race in this country. But when it is about race, then it just is. So when a guy who has been depicted wearing a jacket featuring an apartheid-era Rhodesian flag walks into a historic black church and guns down nine African-American worshipers at a Bible study meeting, common sense leads one to believe his motivations are based in racism.It is hardly radical to declare the South Carolina shooter a racist, but conservative pundits and politicians have found it difficult to do just that. Simply by speaking the truth, Carson appears willing to alienate the segment of his party that wants to pretend racism no longer exists in the United States.
That wing includes presidential candidates like Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz, who have consistently tried to downplay the significance of race, even where racism is obvious.
At least this time, instead of parroting GOP talking points, Carson decided to stake out his own position. It remains to be seen whether his honesty becomes an asset or a liability in the Republican presidential primaries.
His recognition of the racial motivation behind the Charleston murders could alienate part of his original Tea Party base, but it also could help him with GOP moderates and conservatives who view his willingness to stick his neck out and say something other Republicans are too timid to say as a point in his favor.
Carson's willingness to call racism what it is, combined with 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's calls for taking down the confederate flag in South Carolina, point to a growing rift in the GOP base. That divide between the racist apologists and racism deniers on one side, and principled conservatives who acknowledge America still has work to do on race relations, is one that will play out in the 2016 Republican primaries.
Republican voters have an opportunity to decide whether they wish to remain a viable political party that can address complex issues, or whether they want to travel down the narrow bigoted path of becoming a White Nationalist party that is unwilling to face any inconvenient truths about race in America.
Jon Stewart Slams Fox For Hypocrisy On Politicizing Charleston Shooting
By: Steve - June 26, 2015 - 10:00am
Jon Stewart opened his show this Monday by taking on the hypocrites over at Faux "news" for their bitching that President Obama and the left have supposedly "politicized" the massacre in Charleston, South Carolina this week and that it's of course, "too early" to have a discussion about gun control, or racism, or whatever else they'd prefer we not talk about because they don't want to offend their racist audience.
After showing a montage of the talking heads over there, ending with Sean Hannity saying this:
HANNITY: It's almost like a sickness that, you know, a tragedy happens, let's see how we can advance our narrative.
Stewart let him have it.
STEWART: Yes. It's a sickness. This rush to use tragedy to advance... your narrative. Combine that with an inability for self-examination, an almost comical degree of self-exculpatory rhetoric, flag pins, little bit of leg, and a complete immunity to irony -- you've got yourself a full blown case of Fox-abetes.
You know, they're amazing. They are amazing at what they do. Remind me of this past December when two New York City cops were tragically killed during a time when people were protesting police shootings of unarmed black men. Talk to me about the restraint Fox used in not advancing their narrative.
Then we have the Fox idiots, claiming Mayor Bill de Blasio has blood on his hands and attacking President Obama and those on the left for supposedly being the ones making racial tensions worse in New York.
As Stewart said, despite the pleas from the likes of Fox not to do anything about what happened, and the public is rising up and demanding that the Confederate flag be removed from the grounds of the state capitol.
After slamming the legislators in South Carolina who passed a law requiring that it takes 2/3 of them to vote to get the flag removed and the fact that it's the absolute very least that should be done, Stewart hammered them for the fact that the flag was one of the least of their troubles.
STEWART: In Charleston, Emanuel AME Church is on Calhoun St., named for former Vice President John C. Calhoun. Let's call him the racist Christopher Lloyd. He was 19th century America's foremost defender of slavery, the guy who said slavery wasn't a necessary evil, but a positive good.
That's the address that this church has to have on their letterhead. Take a short walk down the street, you're at the Daughters of the Confederacy's Confederate Museum. The Rebel uniforms are venerated like the Shroud of Turin.
I touched General Lee's tunic. It cured my shingles.
You can't spit your tabacci in Charleston without hitting a public monument to the glorious days of slavery, because in the context of Charleston's extensive Confederate porn industry, the flag is just the money shot.
That town is like Confederate Epcot.
Stewart followed up with some very funny and irreverent perspective from his correspondents, Jordon Klepper and Jessica Williams, with Klepper doing his best schtick as the tone deaf white guy who ignores any complaints he hears from black people like Williams, and Williams turning to her new friend, "helper whitey" after being fed up with the likes of Klepper.
Here is the video:
Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Tax Credits For All Americans
By: Steve - June 25, 2015 - 11:40am
On June 25, the Supreme Court upheld a provision of the Obama Affordable Care Act that allows for tax credits to aid millions of Americans who obtained health insurance through the federal exchanges, as opposed to those operated by their state.
The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Obama's health care law may provide nationwide tax subsidies to help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance. And the vote was not even close, it came down 6 to 3.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the majority opinion in the 6-to-3 decision. The court's three most conservative members -- Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. -- dissented.
The case concerned a central part of the Affordable Care Act, Mr. Obama's signature legislative achievement. The law created marketplaces, known as exchanges, to allow people who lack insurance to shop for individual health plans.
And btw, all the right-wing stooges (including O'Reilly) predicted the Supreme Court would throw that provision out, and as usual, they were all wrong.
Then of course all the right-wing nuts flipped out.
Responding to the health care decision on Fox News America's Newsroom, network contributor and former Bush administration advisor Karl Rove deemed it to be "an act of judicial activism" from the Supreme Court designed to "protect the Affordable Care Act."
With today's Obamacare decision, John Roberts confirms that he has completely jettisoned all pretense of textualism. He is a results-oriented judge, period, ruling on big cases based on what he thinks the policy result should be or what the political stakes are for the court itself. He is a disgrace. That is all. (National Review Online)
Fox senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said that Chief Justice John Roberts had "resorted to a nearly unheard of construction in order to save the statute," going on: "Roberts will undermine his own credibility as a fair-minded jurist, because he has reached to bizarre and odd contortions in order to save this statute twice."
After the decision was released, the Media Research Center VP Dan Gainor tweeted that the "scumbag" Chief Justice Roberts -- appointed by George W. Bush -- was "an awful pick" for the court.
And it goes on and on, all the right-wing stoogs hated the ruling. Even though this ruling saved health care for 8 million Americans, they do not give a damn, they just wanted the court to rule against Obama to make him look bad for political reasons. And btw folks, even if the court had thrown it out, Congress was going to pass a fix for it, so the Republicans would have lost either way. Obamacare is here to stay and it is working great, they just refuse to admit it.
