Michael Moore devastated.
Get ready for the weekly Obama regime Friday afternoon news dump.
And now this important message from Ferguson protest leader, Derby McKesson:
Midday bump: Lib rag Salon wants everyone to know it’s okay to be on welfare and carry a Coach bag.
“Al Sharpton owes almost a million from 2004? I’m shocked, he seems like such a straight shooter.” . . . said nobody.
Via Washington Examiner:
An explosive new report about “deadbeat politicos” revealed Friday that civil rights activist and MSNBC celebrity the Rev. Al Sharpton owes the federal government tens of thousands of dollars in fines and $880,000 in debt from his ill-fated 2004 presidential campaign.
And that’s on top of the $4.5 million Sharpton owes in back taxes.
In a report that revealed long-term unpaid debts by notable presidential candidates including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain, the Center for Public Integrity also found that most political debtors aren’t really on the hook to pay their bills because of the way the campaign finance system works.
In focus at the top of the report titled “Deadbeat politicos outrun federal enforcers,” was Sharpton, who the Center noted uses his show, “PolticsNation,” as “a de facto soapbox for his liberal political views,” including defending the IRS against Tea Party criticism.
It found that Sharpton still owes the Treasury $19,500, “after being caught accepting illegal campaign contributions, according to federal records. It also owes the Federal Election Commission several thousand dollars in unpaid fines, even after paying off a separate $208,000 penalty in 2009 for several campaign violations.
Mitt Romney Is Running for President – Daily Beast
Mitt Romney will call senior donors at 11am EST Friday to give them “an update” on his campaign plans. Sources have told the Daily Beast that the former Massachusetts governor will announce his intention to explore another run for the White House. Romney secured the Republican nomination in 2012 but he was comfortably beaten by President Obama on election day. Romney and his senior aides believe he is the best placed Republican to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Update: We just dodged a bullet.
The Romney Statement: Not Running. “I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee.” – Hugh Hewitt
I’ve been emailed this text of remarks Mitt Romney will be making to his supporters shortly:
Let me begin by letting you know who else is on this call, besides Ann and me. There are a large number of people who signed on to be leaders of our 2016 finance effort. In addition, state political leadership from several of the early primary states are on the line. And here in New York City, and on the phone, are people who have been helping me think through how to build a new team, as well as supporters from the past who have all been kind enough to volunteer their time during this deliberation stage. Welcome, and thank you. Your loyalty and friendship, and your desire to see the country with new, competent and conservative leadership warms my heart.
After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee.
Now if you will excuse Michael, he has an all-you-can-eat buffet to put out of business.

[N]eedless to say, this kind of thing wreaked all kinds of havoc in my life because of what this hate-speech does to inspire the more deranged among us.
This past week or so of hysterical attacks on me only proves that the American lovers of violence and the issuers of fatwas in OUR society haven’t gone away. They are our American Isis – “Criticize or mock those whom we deify, like our sainted sniper, and we will harm you most assuredly.”
Barack Obama hardest hit.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party reached the top spot in a Panels Research poll taken for The Jerusalem Post and its Hebrew sister newspaper, Ma’ariv Sof Hashavua, on Thursday for the first time since Labor and Hatnua joined forces on December 10 to create the Zionist Union.
The poll found that the Likud would win 25 seats, the Zionist Union 24, Bayit Yehudi 14, the Joint Arab List 12, Yesh Atid 11, United Torah Judaism and Koolanu eight, Shas seven, Meretz six, and Yisrael Beytenu five. The parties polled that did not cross the 3.25-percent electoral threshold were Green Leaf and both Yahad Ha’am Itanu and Otzma Yehudit.
Last week, the Zionist Union was ahead of the Likud by two seats, and two weeks ago the lead was three.
The percentage of respondents calling themselves “undecided” fell from 30% to 18%.
According to the White House, since this happened inside Afghanistan it should not be labelled terrorism.
Via Daily Mail:
The Taliban have claimed responsibility for an insider attack by an Afghan soldier that killed three American contractors at a Kabul airport on Thursday.
A spokesman for the insurgent group said that the attacker’s name was Ehsanullah and that he was from Laghman Province in the east of the country.
The Taliban said the soldier ‘opened fire on invaders,’ according to the Washington Post.
The Taliban said the soldier, whom they called an ‘infiltrator,’ was ‘martyred by return fire,’ the Post reports.
A fourth American was injured in the attack and the US-led coalition confirmed that an Afghan, believed to be the attacker, was killed.
The attack occurred at an Afghan military base at the North Kabul International Airport complex.
‘Insider attacks’ by Afghan security forces have been on the rise in recent years and have led to the deaths of 142 people.

…Lewis had long been determined to oust the mayor who had pushed her members to a launch a historic strike, cut schools’ budgets and once cursed her out over dinner. After searching in vain for a candidate, she was taking steps to take him out herself.
But her own body betrayed that wish, she said Wednesday, the first time she has publicly discussed her health and the treatment she’s undergoing for it.
“There was a moment where I was like really angry that I couldn’t do it,” Lewis said at the Chicago Teachers Union headquarters.
“Yes, I wanted to be in this race, I’m not gonna. . . . But at this moment in time, no, I don’t miss not being in it at all,” she said. “What happened was, it was clear to me it wasn’t my time, this wasn’t for me.
“I tell people all the time, there’s an old Jewish joke, ‘If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.’[..]
Lewis’ meanest critics who mocked her weight may not recognize her now. After weight-loss surgery in March, she was already down 100 pounds by October. She has since lost much more and said she enjoyed buying new clothes in regular stores rather than in the plus-size department.
