    Reliable Sources got heated on Sunday morning when the Washington Post’Jennifer Rubinclashed with David Shuster during a discussion about ABC News’ Jonathan Karl — who issued a statement “regretting” the error he made in reporting on emails about Benghazi talking points. Going after Shuster for parroting “Media Matters talking points,” she suggested CNN “mute” him.
    Karl’s story wasn’t incorrect, Rubin argued, adding that the problem was with the attribution… before Shuster cut her off, prompting Rubin to glare while he spoke.

    Shortly after informing the board of directors of her breast cancer, former CEO of Tuesday Morning was ousted as the head of the furniture retail company last June. Kathleen Mason, who served as CEO for 12 years, has filed a lawsuit against the company, claiming she was discriminated against.
    The Wall Street Journal reports this may be anunprecedented lawsuit among cases over alleged discrimination:
    While employee suits over alleged discrimination are common, it is rare for one to come from a former CEO. Ms. Mason’s lawsuit, filed on Thursday in county court in Dallas, claims the board wrongfully dismissed her because “it regarded her as being disabled” after she informed some fellow directors about her diagnosis.

    Scott Walker Touts Job Growth That Ranks Wisconsin Seventh-To-Last In Nation

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 12:57 PM with No comments

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) is pushing a report from his administration’s Department of Workforce Development that puts the state’s net private-sector job gains at 32,000 for 2012. Federally tallied figures for all states won’t be available until June, as CBS affiliate WSAW explains, which renders comparisons impossible:
    Walker’s Department of Workforce Development released the new figures on Thursday, but they can’t be compared to other states until next month. Walker has been releasing the figures before they are published officially by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    How Cheap Genetic Testing Complicates Cancer Screening For Us All

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 12:50 PM with No comments

    Sometimes, more medical information is a bad thing. The influential United States Preventive Services Task Forcerecommends against most women getting genetic screenings for their susceptibility to breast cancer. Why? Because the tests are imperfect: for every woman who gets tested for genes associated with onset breast cancer, even more will falsely test positive, leading spooked patients into needless surgery or psychological trauma. Super cheap genetic testing from enterprising health startups, such as 23andMe, have complicated cancer detection for us all by increasing the accessibility of imperfect medical information.

    Minnesota State Rep Calls Climate Change ‘Complete United Nations Fraud And Lie’

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 12:31 PM with No comments

    On Wednesday night, Minnesota State Representative Glenn Gruenhagen (R-Glencoe) took to the House floor to talk about climate change and renewable energy.
    Using sources such as the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Gruenhagen told his colleagues that climate change is a “complete United Nations fraud and lie…. The latest facts from CPAC show that in the last sixteen years there’s been no global warming.”
    While it is common practice among climate skeptics to claim that the Earth is no longer warming, the fact is global temperatures are rising. 2010 was the hottest year on record and every year of the 2000s was warmer than 1990s average. Over 30 million people were displaced by climate-related extreme weather events in 2012, and it is increasingly likely millions more will be displaced in the near  future.

    IRS Commissioner: "It Is Absolutely Not" Illegal For IRS To Target Conservatives

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 11:35 AM with No comments

    STEVEN MILLER, IRS COMMISSIONER: I think, are you talking about the letters?

    REP. PRICE: Saying that there is a parellel here in the exansive nature of what the IRS has done, would you care to recharacterize the unneccesary word? Is it illegal what they have done? 

    MILLER: It is absolutely not illegal. 

    PRICE: It's not illegal what the IRS has done?

    MILLER: Let me understand the question. What is your statement as to what is illegal? 

    PRICE: Do you believe it is illegal for employees of the IRS to create lists to target individual groups and citizens in this country? 

    MILLER: I think the Treasury inspector general indicated that it might not be, but other will be able to tell that. 

    PRICE: What do you believe?

    MILLER: I don't believe it is.

    GOP Weekly Address: Congressman & Doctor Andy Harris On Red Tape In Obamacare

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 11:34 AM with No comments

    GOP: Congressman Andy Harris, M.D., delivers this week's address on the devastating effects of Obamacare. Labeled a "train wreck" by one of its authors, this legislation will raise health care insurance premiums, stifle medical innovation, and cost jobs across the country - not to mention the thousands of pages in new regulations, as shown by the "Red Tape Tower." That's why the House voted and passed legislation to repeal Obamacare.

    Krauthammer On IRS Commissioner: "You've Got To Be A Knave Or A Fool To Say That And An Idiot To Believe It"

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 11:32 AM with No comments


    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: The testimony from [Steven] Miller comes under the category of 'how stupid do you think we are?' Here's a guy who said that the IRS openly discriminated against groups on the basis of their politics, but the action was not a political action. It was instead an attempt at efficiency. You've got to be a knave or a fool to say that and you have to be an idiot to believe it. It's simply a contradiction in terms. It's a matter of definition. It isn't even a matter of fact.

    So that, I mean -- he starts off way, way out there, and then he obviously was withholding the truth when he went before the committee before and said, 'well I answered the questions,' but he concealed from them the fact that this was going on. He knew it was a deep concern. He said nothing.

    And let me just add the last bit of news that we got -- how this was released by the IRS. This is peculiar and I'm not even sure I can understand why. But they decide knowing the IG report will come out this week, they decide a week ago to plant a question in a closed meeting of the ABA (American Bar Association) so that Lois Lerner answers it and gives an answer, assuming I think that it's going to leak out, but I'm not even sure I understand the logic of doing that.

    Why not just issue a press release, say it? But to do it in a sort of ridiculously devious way shows you an institution that is sort of given intrinsically to being untruthful and deceptive. (Special Report, March 17, 2013)

    Obama Weekly Address: Build A "Thriving" Middle Class By Investing In Jobs, Skills And Opportunity

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 11:31 AM with No comments


    White House: In this week’s address, President Obama talked about his belief that a rising, thriving middle class is the true engine of economic growth, and that to reignite that engine and continue to build on the progress we’ve made over the last four years, we need to invest in three areas: jobs, skills and opportunity.
    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Hi, everybody. Over the past few months, I’ve laid out a series of commonsense ideas to reignite the true engine of our economic growth: a rising, thriving middle class.

    The way I see it, there are three areas where we need to focus. One: making America a magnet for good jobs. Two: making sure our workers have the education and skills they need to do those jobs. And three: making sure your hard work leads to a decent living.

    I’ve also been visiting cities across the country that are doing some interesting and creative things along these lines.

    On Friday, I stopped by a factory in Baltimore that’s creating good jobs here at home by exporting digging equipment abroad.

    I read with young kids in a pre-K program, where kids are getting a head start learning the skills they’ll need to succeed in life.

    And I stopped by a program that’s helping folks in tough circumstances – especially low-income dads – get the training and guidance they need to find work and support their families.

    That’s why I like getting out of the Washington echo chamber whenever I can – because too often, our politics aren’t focused on the same things you are. Working hard. Supporting your family and your community. Making sure your kids have every chance in life.

    More than anything, the American people make me optimistic about where we’re headed as a nation. Especially after all we’ve been through the past several years. And that should encourage us to work even harder on the issues that matter to you.

    In a little over three years, our businesses have created more than 6.5 million new jobs. And while our unemployment rate is still too high, it’s the lowest it’s been since 2008. But now we need to create even more good, middle-class jobs, and we need to do it faster.

    Corporate profits have skyrocketed to all-time highs. But now we need to get middle-class wages and incomes rising too.

    Our housing market is healing. But we still need to help a lot more families stay in their homes, or refinance to take advantage of historically low rates.

    And our deficits are shrinking at the fastest rate in decades. But now we need to budget in a smarter way that doesn’t hurt middle-class families or harm critical investments in our future.

    So in a lot of sectors, things are looking up. The American auto industry is thriving. American energy is booming. And American ingenuity in our tech sector has the potential to change the way we do almost everything.

    In the coming weeks, I’m going to visit more cities like Baltimore, and Austin, Texas – where I was two weeks ago; places where Americans are coming together to strengthen their own communities and economies – and in the process, making this country better for all of us.

    And I’m going to keep trying to work with both parties in Washington to make progress on your priorities. Because I know that if we come together around creating more jobs, educating more of our kids, and building new ladders of opportunity for everyone who’s willing to climb them – we’ll all prosper, together.

    Thanks. And have a great weekend.

    Grover Norquist Endorses Italian ‘Tea Party’ Group’s Anti-Tax Pledge

    Posted by Bibin Dominic Tom Posted on 1:03 AM with No comments

    Conservatives in Italy — a country that was neither colonized by Great Britain nor staged a massive civil 
    disobedience campaign centered on hot beverages — are trying to form their own “Tea Party,” using Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge as a central organizing tool. US News & World Report has more:
    A group called Tea Party Italia, inspired by the tea party movement in the U.S. and by Norquist’s pledge, created a similar taxpayer contract it is pushing ahead of the country’s general election next month. The pledge says politicians won’t raise taxes and will work to reduce the country’s debt, which the Associated Press reports hit a record $2.64 trillion in December.
    But getting politicians to sign on to the pledge might prove more of a challenge.
    “Candidates in the U.S. want to sign this pledge because they have to do a difficult and hard campaign,” he says. Italian candidates, on the other hand, are chosen by the party and don’t go through a campaign season. “So it’s very difficult to find [politicians] that believe in our ideas in Italy.”
    Norquist penned a letter to the group earlier this month endorsing the “Italian taxpayer protection pledge,” a move that could make it significantly more difficult for the country to retire it’s $2.6 trillion debt. Conservatives in other countries, from Japan to Israel, have tried to emulate similar tactics as well.
    One reason why Norquist may be looking overseas for support is that his power is waning back home. Norquist’s pledge contributed to dozens of GOP losses in 2012 and Republicans subsequently abandoned him in droves during the fiscal cliff negotiations.
