‘Trey Gowdy to GOP: No Benghazi fundraising’
“Yes, and I will cite myself as an example,” Gowdy said. “I have never sought to raise a single penny on the backs of four murdered Americans.”
‘Gowdy, in a similar statement to one he made on Fox News on Tuesday, said the Benghazi investigation should remain above the political fray’.

‘Dispatched to conservative mailing lists, the solicitation depicts the Benghazi inquiry as all about Clinton, accusing her and her comrades of mounting a cover-up and successfully (apparently) neutering all previous congressional investigations’.
‘But the Stop Hillary PAC warns that Americans who want the truth about Benghazi ought to be worried about Gowdy’s fate’.
“There is, however, a way for these Americans to help”:
“They can sign the Stop Hillary PAC’s “statement of support” for Gowdy and, of course, send money to the PAC”.
“If you cannot part with $50, $100, $250, $500 or more, the group suggests a symbolic donation of $20.16”.
“If Congressman Gowdy can finally uncover the truth, then, perhaps we can stop Hillary once and for all…because, she MUST BE STOPPED,” the group notes’.

5. ‘Obama’s Third Term’
‘The National Report, a parody website that reads like an unfunny version of The Onion, struck again this week with an article entitled “Obama Announces Plans For A Third Term Presidential Run.”
‘The article has now been shared over 264,000 on Facebook, and based on previous experience, we imagine that many of the people who have shared it don’t realize it is a spoof’:
“I can’t abandon the American people now when they need me more than ever,” Obama told reporters at a press conference this morning. “We’ve come this far as a nation, now is not the time to do something different. This is the change you wanted and this is the change you’re getting.”
‘As Snopes notes, “many of those who encountered the item [are] mistaking it for a genuine news article.”
‘Right-wing activists were up in arms this week over allegations that Obama ignored Armed Forces Day in favor of marking the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia’.
‘Tony Perkins told Family Research Council members that the president “couldn’t be bothered to acknowledge Armed Forces Day” because he was too busy trying to “lecture Americans on an [LGBT] agenda tearing apart the very military he ignored.”
‘Of course, had Perkins and others bothered to do a simple Google search, they would have easily found the 2014 Presidential Proclamation on Armed Forces Day’.
‘While John Roberts may have moved the Supreme Court decidedly to the right, Larry Klayman believes President Obama is using the NSA to blackmail the chief justice’.
“He was going to side with the other justices and find that Obamacare was unconstitutional. Is it something that was dug up on him by the NSA or the CIA? Was that used against him to blackmail him?” Klayman asked’.
‘Now, Klayman admits that he has zero evidence that the president is blackmailing Chief Justice Roberts and is just asking the question’.
‘But now that the question has been asked (by Klayman), Klayman is determined to “get the truth on this.”
‘Citing the Bundy Ranch standoff, Renew America pundit Sher Zieve writes this week that the Bureau of Land Management is attempting to “end cattle farming and begin the process of turning the USA into a meatless society.”
“This is Obama’s private army,” Zieve says of the BLM, “one that will be used against American citizens and likely very soon.”
‘Don’t worry, Zieve has just a few small concerns about Common Core too’:
“Today, in U.S. government schools both Marxist and Islamic propaganda are regularly taught and the curricula for these are growing markedly,” Zieve writes, alleging that the “Holy Bible is being banned in schools along with the targeting of any and all Christian thought and speech, while Islam is being actively taught.”
‘Florida State Rep. Charles Van Zant, boosting the far right’s campaign against Common Core, told an education conference this week that the new curriculum standards will turn children gay’:
“These people, that will now receive $220 million from the state of Florida unless this is stopped, will promote double-mindedness in state education and attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can. I’m sorry to report that to you.”
‘Think Progress captured his remarks’:
How sick is FOX?
‘By late Saturday night, Ludwig was speculating to Fox News that Rodger’s gay feelings had turned him into a mass murderer’.
“When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,’” Ludwig recalled. “And then I started to have a different idea: Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?’”
“Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?” she continued’.
Reality television psychologist Dr. Robi Ludwig asserted to Fox News that a mass shooting in California over the weekend may have been triggered because the suspect could not cope with his “homosexual impulses.”
In a videos posted on YouTube, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger explained that he had planned a shooting rampage to get retribution on women for rejecting him.
“All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me and treated me like scum, while you gave yourself to other men,” Rodger said just hours before gunning down six people near UC Santa Barbara’s campus. “And all of you men for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men. I hate you.”

‘A lot of the dysfunction in the Republican Party can be traced back to the fact that the Republican base has dumbed itself down’.
‘The majority of these states are bedrock Republican country. The reason why so little is getting done is because it is impossible to come to an agreement when one political party refuses to be guided by facts’.
‘The Street compiled a list of the 10 dumbest states in America, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, states that are run by Republicans dominate the list’.
‘The Street’s list was based on the level of education a percentage of each state’s population receives. This is not a comprehensive list, and it does not mean that there are no intelligent people in that states below, but there is a clear political lean to the list’.
Dumb and poor go hand in hand in Southern Republican States.
So why do they keep voting for the people that made them dumb and poor?
‘Here are the top 10 dumbest states in America’:
10). Tennessee – Republican Welfare State
9). Oklahoma – Republican Welfare State
8). Indiana – Republican Welfare State
7). Alabama – Republican Welfare State
5). Louisiana – Republican Welfare State
3). Mississippi – Republican Welfare State
1). West Virginia
– ‘Only one of the states voted for President Obama in 2012 (Nevada)’.
– ‘Three of the states have Democratic governors (Kentucky, Arkansas, West Virginia)’.
– ‘Those same three states all went for Mitt Romney in 2012’.
– ‘Eight of these states have or will have some form of voter ID law in effect (West Virginia and Nevada require no ID)’.
– ‘Seven of the states have Republican controlled state legislatures’.
– ‘One state has split control (Democrats control the House in Kentucky)’.
– ‘Two states have Democratically controlled legislatures (Nevada and West Virginia)’.
‘Since the Republican dominated states are not as smart, it is isn’t a big shock that they send right wing ideologues to Congress’.
‘The lack of collective intelligence leads to an electorate that tends to base their policies on belief instead of facts’.
‘These states are the home of the climate change deniers’.
‘They contain the same people who believe that unemployment benefits make people lazy, and Obamacare is socialism’.
