Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed today that "over 170 million jobs" could be lost due to sequestration, which she also wants blamed on Republicans.
This number is greater than the total number of jobs in America, so it seems highly unlikely.
RCP: Washington Times columnist and Democratic insider Lanny Davis tells WMAL-AM that his editor, John Solomon, "received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn't like some of my columns, even though I'm a supporter of Obama. I couldn't imagine why this call was made." Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, "that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials."

Rep. Keith Ellison (D- Minnesota) was invited on Sean Hannity's program to discuss the Sequestration. Instead the Congressman threw a hissy fit before any questions could even be asked and continued his childish rant for the entire interview.
You stay classy, Congressman Ellison.
A father publicly posted this video on his daughter's Facebook page in order to warn others, shame his daughter and hopefully correct her bad behavior.
So what do you think? Did this dad go too far or is this exactly the kind of parenting we need today?
Rising gas prices fuel public outrage, and the popular explanation is that unscrupulous oil companies are taking advantage of helpless consumers. This makes a good story but, as Professor Art Carden explains, it's not accurate.

Although there may have been a little tongue in Matthews' cheek, everyone watching knew full well that he meant it, and that his mission in the next 44 months - as well as that of likely every MSNBC contributor and guest - is to get Clinton in the White House.
What's interesting is how the folks on this almost satirical news network don't even feel like they have to hide it anymore.

Fox News political analyst and "Special Report" panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller's Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets "stab" and "kill" dissenting voices.

Cam Edwards talks to Amanda Collins, a young woman who was raped at the University of Nevada. She responds to ignorant comments made about campus rape by anti-concealed carry politicians, her natural right to defend herself and the mainstream media's refusal to cover stories like hers.
This is a brave and very well-spoken young woman who deserves to be heard in this debate.
Greta Van Susteren created a montage of statements on the sequester. From the video it is clear that the sequester cuts were a product of the White House. It is also clear that Barack Obama and Democrats continue to get away with the bold lie that the idea for sequestration was something Republicans in Congress pushed.
See for yourself.
A Whole Foods supermarket in New York has removed a sign that used a drawing of President Barack Obama to advertise a sale on chicken after complaints that the ad was offensive.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich talks to Charlie Rose and Gayle King about the federal government, automatic budget cuts and offers his own criticism of the GOP structure.
Is this administration saying that they don't value certain middle class jobs as highly if they work for wealthy Americans?
It seems like the attitude from the White House is that private sector jobs take a back seat to unsustainable government programs and spending. Plus, it sounds better to claim you're only soaking the evil rich, right?
I seem to remember the same shotgun talking point from our wise VP when he was asked about self defense following an earthquake and potential rioting...
This is a very entertaining peek behind the Supreme Court curtain and just an overall great conversation with Justice Clarence Thomas. As part of the Herbert W. Vaughan Lecture Series, Justice Thomas visits Harvard Law School -- a law school he turned down in favor of Yale because he felt it was too big and conservative for him!
Find out what else the conservative Justice Thomas says to the faculty and students at Harvard. It is well worth your time.

Bizarre: Columbia Prof. Gone Mad? (Strips on Stage with Ninjas Stabbing Stuffed Animals, Videos of Terrorists and Rap Music Blaring)
Columbia Professor Emlyn Hughes begins the first Frontiers Quantum Physics class with insanity. The professor strips on stage, has Ninja's stab stuffed animals and broadcasts images of historical dictators and terrorist like Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein -- all backed by confusing hip-hop music.
This amateur video recorded by a student in the class shows just how insanely bizarre this presentation really was, with one girl yelling "he has a gun" during the mass confusion. The 'gun' was really just a microphone, but it is easy to see why one might be concerned and suspect a more sinister intent.
You really have to see it to believe it...
The al-Nusra Front released a video showing an ambush in which its fighters simultaneously detonated 50 explosive devices on a Syrian military convoy in the Eastern Ghotah area of Damascus, Syria.

**Warning: Loud Explosions***
The meteor crossed the sky a full 2 minutes and 20 seconds before the explosion, which can be heard at the 22 second mark of this amateur video. The video also captures what seems to be the unidentified popping reported by witnesses afterwards.

Milton Friedman explodes the myth that government can provide goods and services at no one's expense.
Watch the now infamous Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union. The actual content of Sen. Marco Rubio's message deserves far more attention than it has received.
It's sad that so much time has been spent discussing a sip of water now heard 'round the world, but Sen. Marco Rubio handles the subject with humor and manages to again discuss the important points he made (largely overshadowed) in his GOP response to the President.
Today the mainstream media is obsessed with Marco Rubio taking a sip of water during the GOP Response to Obama last night. Largely overlooked was this strong Tea Party rebuttal by Sen. Rand Paul.
Club for Growth's President, former Congressman Chris Chocola, discusses the so-called GOP Civil War and the need for government spending cuts, which he says will likely come in the form of House Republicans allowing the Sequestration to happen.

Brian Lilley of Sun News gives an important warning to his American friends: registration of firearms will lead to the confiscation of firearms.
New video shows the chaotic scene of the Fort Hood terrorist attack, which the government prefers to describe as 'workplace violence.' Such a politically correct designation means that the heroic victims of this tragedy are denied full recognition and proper medical care, which has caused a growing number to condemn and sue the Obama administration.
Milton Friedman explodes the myth that the Great Depression was produced by a failure of private enterprise. His comments about the Federal Reserve are interesting and especially relevant today.

Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) can't explain why health-care premiums are going up when his Party promised they would go down. So instead he deflects attention by insulting right-leaning donors, while fleeing journalist Jason Mattera.

Dr. Benjamin Carson explains to Sean Hannity why he felt the need to lecture Obama using logic and common sense.
Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they're unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: "A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike."
Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio.
Penelope Soto found out what happens when you laugh and give the judge the middle finger.
Bizarre: Michael Moore Actually Asks Lucid and Important Questions for a Change! (On Mass Shootings and Antidepressant Drugs)
Michael Moore sounding lucid, for a change. BUT, anyone that saw Bowling For Columbine knows that Moore blamed the shootings on Lockheed. His theory was that the presence of the "war machine" company in the town caused these kids to be violent.
Now, his theory has changed. And I think he's onto something...
Dr. Ben Carson Attacks Political Correctness, National Debt and Taxes in Front of Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast
An awesome and unique speech delivered at the National Prayer Breakfast in President Barack Obama's presence. Dr. Carson (a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital) suggested that political correctness is a "dangerous" threat to free speech and encouraged Americans to share their views without hesitation. Carson then gives his views on education, the national debt, taxation, lawyers and health care -- largely in direct opposition to Obama's own ideas and policies.

Unbelievable shots from a little kid (Titus Ashby) between 18 and 24 months old. Titus only began shooting baskets shortly after learning to walk, yet he already looks like a pro and displays that human potential is limitless.

'Active Shooter Training Video' from US Homeland Security: How to Protect Yourself During a Mass-Shooting -- Use SCISSORS?
The US Department of Homeland Security manages to (1.) lump the Fort Hood jihad attack in with other mass killings, lest we name the enemy you know, and (2.) recommends hiding, escaping, or defending oneself with a pair of scissors if necessary during a mass killing.
No mention of using an equal level of force to defend yourself or others...
A shockingly bad performance.
