Jorge Ramos might have blown any chance of riding on Trump Force One, or maybe not

Does anybody else besides The People’s Cube see anything extra ironic about pro-amnesty Univision anchor Jorge Ramos trying to jump ahead in line and speak out of turn at a political presser? Or maybe it was all part of the grand stage show — who knows.

I’m not a “Trump for President” guy, but this really cracked me up — and I don’t want to hear any of the same press that whined when Neil Munro “disrespected” Obama by speaking out of turn, or allowed themselves to be lassoed in Hillary’s moving rope lines — bitching about this:

Ramos was later let back in and had this exchange with Trump.

The 2016 campaign on both sides of the aisle is shaping up to be freakin’ surreal.

So much for the NYT helping Planned Parenthood push their ‘heavily edited’ video claim

The videos showing Planned Parenthood reps talking about selling harvested baby organs were quickly dismissed by Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the rest as heavily edited and misleading.

The New York Times originally reported that the organization that released the videos only put out the full unedited version after Planned Parenthood complained. The Times has corrected that, finally:

Correction: August 6, 2015
An article on July 21 about a video made by abortion opponents, which they said proved that Planned Parenthood sells tissue from aborted fetuses for profit, referred incorrectly to the timing of the release of what was described as the full-length, unedited version of the video showing a Planned Parenthood employee talking about how much clinics charge for specimens. The full video was posted at the same time as the edited version. It is not the case that the full video was not released until “after Planned Parenthood complained of selective, misleading editing.”

The pro-abort Left will keep pushing the “heavily edited video” lie because that’s all they’ve got. This exchange sums it up fairly well:

Planned Parenthood really has no “out” here so watching them twist is a thing of beauty — too bad what they’re defending is so horrific.

It Takes a Village … of the Damned: Has the AP assigned Wes Craven to photograph Hillary’s campaign?

President Obama gets halos from the Associated Press, but for now Hillary Clinton will have to settle for this image that’s more like looking through Wes Craven’s camera lens than a political candidate:

View it in all its glory here, but don’t look directly at the photo until you’ve stored your soul in a safe, non-extractable place.

In case you’re wondering what Hillary was saying, here’s the clip.

‘The most trusted name in news’ strikes again

Spin, CNN-style:

ALL those non-Islamic-related mass violence deaths were done by right-wingers, eh?

CNN also used the “since 9/11” technique to avoid escalating the Islamic terrorism numbers dramatically. That’s as ridiculous as making a chart listing deaths caused by Nazis and using the disclaimer “since June 1945.”

Also, if CNN used data before 9/11, they’d have to include wacky Ted Kaczynski, who wasn’t exactly a devoted fan of the GOP (Republicans don’t tend to have dog-eared, highlighted copies of Al Gore’s books in their collections).

Could this WaPo poll question about Obamacare be any more leading?

A Washington Post/ABC News poll found that a majority of those questioned do not want the Supreme Court to block subsidies to states that didn’t set up their own Obamacare exchanges (the case is King v. Burwell).

Check out how the question was framed:

polling


In other words, “Do you want poor kids to die, or do you not care?” That poll question must have been written by Alan Grayson.

Obamacare’s in its ‘meltdown’ phase — time for media to blame the party with zero members who voted for its passage

This is an angle we’ll be seeing more and more as we get into peak election season next year:

In other words, Republicans think Obamacare is a crappy law — and if the Supreme Court agrees on this latest challenge, it’s up to Republicans to figure out how to make the crappy law still work:

Republicans have spent months pitching ideas on how to limit the potential fallout from next month’s Supreme Court decision that could wipe out ObamaCare insurance subsidies in at least 34 states.

But so far, none of their proposals are likely to stave off the massive disruption of the healthcare marketplace that would result from a ruling against the Obama administration, according to a new report by the American Academy of Actuaries.

Next year’s headlines: “Obamacare would have been awesome if Republicans would have saved it!” This is like blaming Mary Jo Kopechne for Chappaquiddick because she didn’t insist on taking the wheel before they got to the bridge.

Figures: Dem who voted to pass Obamacare calls it ‘deceptive’ and wants to lead charge to ‘fix’ the law

The Associated Press actually managed to report that the Affordable Care Act isn’t “affordable” and doesn’t even have much “care” without calling out the Dems who voted for it who now want to lead the charge to “fix” the law (read: throw a ton more money at it).

Rep. McDermott, who voted to pass the ACA, even admits that it’s deceptive:

After paying premiums, many low- and middle-income patients still face high costs when trying to use their coverage. There’s growing concern that the value of a health insurance card is being eaten away by rising deductibles, the amount of actual medical costs that patients pay each year before coverage kicks in.

“I think it’s going to be the next big problem,” said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care.

“We’ve got some 17 million more people covered … but they can’t access the care they seem to be entitled to,” McDermott said. “It costs too much to use the care. That’s the deceptive part about it.”

Since virtually all U.S. residents are now required to have health insurance by President Barack Obama’s health care law, McDermott said Democrats have a responsibility to make sure coverage translates to meaningful benefits.

Short version: The Obamacare law doesn’t do any of what it was ostensibly supposed to do, so now we’ll have to throw another trillion dollars at it to make the law “work.” And by all means, let’s allow those who deceived us once to spend billions more to deceive us again (those paying attention weren’t deceived the first time but were unfortunately outnumbered by morons).

If this isn’t the best argument for full repeal, nothing is. Too bad the Associated Press reported it all with a straight face without pointing out the Jupiter-sized irony of it all.

Babalu or Bust: Mark Halperin’s interview with Ted Cruz single-handedly sets ‘journalism’ back several minutes

Obviously Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin doesn’t think Ted Cruz is an “authentic” Hispanic. Check out this embarrassment:

Amazing that Halperin didn’t ask Cruz where his Conga drum was, because this is clearly what Halperin was hoping to see during the interview:

The Dems have a fake Indian that might get into the race but Cruz is the one who will face most of the “authenticity” scrutiny from many tools in the MSM.
