    wikiquote.org ^ | March 11, 1888 | President Rutherford Birchard Hayes
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes, 19th President of the United States wrote: The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a...
  • Trump won because college-educated Americans are out of touch

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

  • Federal Prosecutor Allegedly Stalked By U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall Was Under Armed Protection

    The prosecutor that U.S. Attorney for Oregon Amanda Marshall is accused of stalking was at the time under 24-hour-a-day armed protective guard because of a contract Mexican drug dealers placed on his life. That news adds a bizarre turn in a situation that appears to have cost Marshall, the top federal prosecutor in Oregon, her job.
  • After MSNBC Axes Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid's Shows, Is Chris Hayes Next?

    Daily Beast ^ | February 19, 2015 | Lloyd Grove
    It was hardly a surprise Thursday when ratings-challenged MSNBC announced the cancellation of the poor-performing afternoon programs hosted by Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid after less than a year, with veteran news anchor Thomas Roberts stepping in to preside over the two-hour block from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Until a permanent replacement is named for Roberts’s 5:30 a.m. program Way Too Early, the 6 a.m. Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will temporarily take up the slack by starting a half-hour earlier. But according to knowledgeable sources at the Comcast-owned cable network, Thursday’s moves were only the...

    ... what will the new narrative from the MSM be? Before the first GOP primaries this year, we heard from the MSM the long-held narrative: A.) "There is a huge war within the GOP. The GOP needs to do something with these "extremists" (Tea Party)!" Then when Boehner and some others won their primaries, the MSM narrative quickly shifted (as in goal-posts): B.) "The GOP has absorbed the Tea Party!" Now with Eric Cantor losing to David Brat (and that was a huge loss), the MSM won't go back on their narrative, even though they logically would have to admit...

    Nevada assemblywoman Michele Fiore clashed with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes regarding rancher Cliven Bundy’s conflict with the federal government on Friday. As Hayes pressed Fiore about her position on the standoff, she relentlessly criticized the government’s handling of the situation. “Why are you there near the Bundy ranch tonight celebrating?” Hayes asks. “Questioning why the heck the federal government felt the need to come in armed to collect an unpaid bill. I mean, that was pretty bold and blatant,” Fiore said. “I mean, generally when my — when our federal government comes in armed, we’re expecting a bigger problem… We will...

    "I need money". Greedy illegal alien Roy Ortiz is suing those who saved his life.- by Brian Hayes | Top Right NewsLast month we profiled an illegal alien felon who made nearly $200,000 by mass-filing frivolous lawsuits against L.A. restaurants. But that was just a creep trying to game the system, and the system (shamefully) letting him. This is truly disgusting. An illegal alien in Colorado is suing several first responders who took part in rescuing him last September, when he became trapped in his car during a flash flood. You heard that right. They saved Roy Ortiz' life --...
  • Twisted Logic from MSNBC's Hayes: Paying People Not to Work Encourages Them to 'Get Back to Work'

    Newsbusters ^ | 1/06/14 | Brad Wilmouth
    Friday's All In with Chris Hayes exhibited host Hayes's latest example of fuzzy logic as he argued that paying people unemployment benefits, rather than encouraging them to go longer without taking a new job, actually encourages them to "get back to work." After applying loaded words and phrases like "unconscionably" and "screwing over millions of people" to Republican opposition to unemployment benefit extension, the MSNBC host played a clip of Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul arguing that unemployment benefits encourage people to remain unemployed longer, and then responded: **SNIP** Now, the reason Congress has never failed to extend federal emergency...

    Cleveland kidnapper-rapist-murderer Ariel Castro has been taking a renewed round of well-deserved scorn on the occasion of his sentencing for the crimes he committed against Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus, and Michelle Knight, and Thursday night’s All In with Chris Hayes was no exception. Host Chris Hayes and his guests Goldie Taylor and Cindy Southworth excoriated Castro for his nauseating comments at the hearing, but Hayes did admit to “one moment when there was a tiny, slight pin prick of empathy in me.” Castro’s statement at his sentencing was a retch-inducing delusion that included claims of consensual sex with his captives,...
  • Cheshire(CT) Killer Seeks Execution(Petit case)

    Steven Hayes, the notorious killer who sits on death row for the 2007 slayings of a Cheshire woman and her two daughters, wants to waive his appeals and proceed to his execution, a path that serial killer Michael Ross took before being put to death in 2005. In a letter to the Courant, Hayes, 49, said he is the subject of "cruel and unusual punishment" by prison staff at Northern Correctional Institution in Somers, treatment he claims has "been escalating" since March 2012. "I was willing to live with the intense grief from my past actions, and I still am...

    Yesterday, AFSCME put out a rather silly ad featuring Mitt Romney’s former garbage collector in La Jolla, California. The ad begins: My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney’s trash. We’re kind of like the invisible people. He doesn’t realize that the service we provide – if it wasn’t for us, it would be a big health issue, us not picking up trash. Get the sledgehammer message? Mitt Romney doesn’t understand! Romney could have no idea about quotidien things such as trash collection because his wealth and detachment prevent him from having to know what life is like...

    "It is, I think very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking the word valor, without invoking the word heros. Why do I feel so uncomfortable about the word hero? I feel… uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers, and things like that. But it seems...

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes apologized Monday evening after outraging veterans by saying it makes him "uncomfortable" to describe all fallen soldiers as heroes. The TV presenter made the controversial comment on the eve of Memorial Day, while kicking off a panel discussion on his show "Up With Chris Hayes" -- noting that it is "very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words 'heroes.'" Explaining why that makes him uneasy, he added, "I feel ... uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate...

    While excoriating his Republican rivals for not having sufficient faith in alternative energy earlier today, President Obama threw a historically inaccurate elbow at a presidential predecessor. (snip) The president decried the “naysayers” who “don’t believe in the future, and don’t believe in trying to do things differently.” He then cited President Rutherford B. Hayes whom, he said, “reportedly said about the telephone, ‘It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?’” (snip) Those students need to run back to history class, because Mr. Obama’s lesson about the 19th president seems wrong, at least according to

    The man who killed three women in a 2007 Cheshire home invasion was sentenced to death on Friday and addressed the court before that sentence was handed down. Joshua Komisarjevsky will be joining Steven Hayes on death row for killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, in their Cheshire home in 2007. He is scheduled to be executed in July, pending appeals. "I will never find peace within. My life will be a continuation of the hurt I caused," Komisarjevsky said in court. "The clock is now ticking and I owe a debt I cannot repay."...
  • (CT) Home invasion killers will be near each other on death row

    Two men condemned to die for killing a mother and her two daughters during a home invasion will be in the same prison for the first time since the 2007 crime, but their attorneys say they are likely to have little, if any, interaction. A jury decided Friday Joshua Komisarjevsky should face death by lethal injection. His accomplice, Steven Hayes, was sentenced to death last year. Hayes and Komisarjevsky blamed each other for escalating the crime, but prosecutors say it took both men to carry out the killings. Komisarjevsky's attorney says he's in a medical unit, a standard procedure for...
