Conan O’Brien is Taking Over Social Media | Branding Los Angeles

November 15, 2013

Conan O’Brien is Taking Over Social Media | Branding Los Angeles : But being rated a “top influencer” on LinkedIn is not enough for Conan, who only joined the site in September after realizing it was the one piece missing from his cherished social media empire. No, the late night host has made it crystal clear that he won’t rest until he gets more followers. So he did what any self-respecting business person on LinkedIn would do to gain a bigger following: he made a plea on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” last week and photoshopped his profile pic to make it appear as though he were standing alongside former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Theodore Roosevelt.

Obama to Formally Propose Social Security Cuts – Truthdig : In the name of compromise, bipartisanship and the satisfaction of a ruling class that is indifferent to the suffering of ordinary Americans, President Obama is ready to sell parts of Social Security and Medicare in his attempt to strike an annual budget that satisfies Republicans and reduces the long-term deficit by $1.8 trillion over 10 years, administration officials say.

Watch Out for Tax Time Tricks

January 12, 2012

The Internal Revenue Service receives thousands of reports each year from taxpayers who receive emails, phone calls, faxes or notices claiming to be from the IRS. Many of these scams fraudulently use the IRS name or logo as a lure to make the communication appear more authentic and enticing. The goal of these scams, known as “phishing,” is to trick you into revealing your personal and financial information. The scammers can then use your information—like your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers—to commit identity theft or steal your money. Here are five things the IRS wants you to know about phishing scams. The IRS never asks for detailed personal and financial information like PIN numbers, passwords or similar secret access information for credit card, bank or other financial accounts. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. If you receive an email from someone claiming to be the IRS or directing you to an IRS site:  Do not reply to the message. Do not open any attachments. Attachments may contain malicious code that will infect your computer. Do not click on any links. If you clicked on links in a suspicious email or phishing website and entered confidential information, visit the IRS website and enter the search term ‘identity theft’ for more information and resources to help. The address of the official IRS website is www.irs.gov . Do not be confused or misled by sites claiming to be the IRS but ending in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov . If you discover a website that claims to be the IRS but you suspect it is bogus, do not provide any personal information on the suspicious site and report it to the IRS. If you receive a phone call, fax or letter in the mail from an individual claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect they are not an IRS employee, contact the IRS at 800-829-1040 to determine if the IRS has a legitimate need to contact you. Report any bogus correspondence. You can forward a suspicious email to phishing@irs.gov. You can help shut down these schemes and prevent others from being victimized. Details on how to report specific types of scams and what to do if you’ve been victimized are available at www.irs.gov . Click on “phishing” on the homepage. This report was compiled with information from the IRS. Be sure to follow  Beverly Hills  Patch on  Twitter  and “Like” us on  Facebook . Read more: Watch Out for Tax Time Tricks

Fernando Espuelas: The Mormon in the Room

October 9, 2011

Why is Mitt Romney so unloved by the Republican base? Even after Rick Perry’s meteoric rise and fall in the polls, the main beneficiary of the Texas governor’s stumbles has been Herman Cain, not Romney. In a series of polls over the last few days, Cain, a man who has never held elective office, a virtually unknown person in the national political scene until his appearance on the multiple debate stages, has surged. In the latest CBS News poll , Cain actually ties with Romney, 17% to 17%, even as Rick Perry falls from 23% to 12% compared to the same poll 2 weeks earlier. So where’s the love for Mitt, the presumptive GOP frontrunner? Shouldn’t the GOP’s vaunted “coronation” process, where the perceived best candidate is pushed forward by the establishment and base of the party towards the nomination, much like George W. Bush was in 2000, be creating a similar momentum for Romney? The conventional answer goes something like this: Romney has changed so many of his core positions after his governorship of Massachusetts, and his subsequent multiple runs for president, that voters are suspicious of what he really believes. Is Romney pro-choice? He was, but not anymore. Did he support the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the military? Yes, that is, until he was against it. Gun laws, same. Immigration reform, he was for it until he discovered that you can’t be nominated in today’s post-Reagan GOP unless you advocate ever harsher anti-immigrant measures that, as in the case of Arizona and Alabama, amount to lightly disguised ethnic cleansing strategies. And Social Security? When Perry first zoomed up the GOP preference polls — and his nonstrategic insistence that the federal program that nearly wiped out poverty among senior citizens over the last 7 decades is nothing more than a gigantic Bernie Madoff-style scam — Romney abandoned his Social Security privatization views for the more Florida-friendly new role as the Social Security champion. While an evolution of your views over time is a sign of a learning brain, incorporating new facts as they are discovered, Romney’s whole-cloth shift in so many fundamental issues of deep ideological import to Republicans is inherently suspect. But this may not be Romney’s biggest problem in creating an emotional bond with the base of the GOP. While the former Massachusetts Governor has morphed into a Southern-strategy friendly Conservative, he can’t fully escape who he is. There are some factors that are beyond the power of focus-group driven repositioning. Romney, of course, is a devout Mormon. His family is steeped in the Mormon tradition. And no one has remotely questioned Romney’s sincerity in this regard. And that is the problem. Romney is the Mormon in the room. His religion crashes directly into Evangelical Christian dogma. As CNN reported , Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, who has endorsed Rick Perry, has called the Mormon church a “cult.” In a recent speech before the conservative Values Voters Summit, Jeffress unloaded on the Mormon faith. Speaking to CNN after his appearance, Jeffress said, “I think Mitt Romney’s a good, moral man, but I think those of us who are born-again followers of Christ should always prefer a competent Christian to a competent non-Christian like Mitt Romney. So that’s why I’m enthusiastic about Rick Perry.” This is the ultimate dog whistle for Evangelicals. Jeffress is clearly making the case that Romney is a “non-Christian” and therefore not fit to be the President of the United States. In the same interview Jeffress asserted that Romney “doesn’t embrace the historical tenets of evangelical Christianity.” And this is not a new problem from Romney. Back in 2007 during Romney’s first run for the GOP nomination, the televangelist Bill Keller penned a missive to Evangelicals that is as clear as can be. It was titled “A vote for Romney is a vote for Satan.” Conservative firebrand and electoral marketing wiz Richard Viguerie published on his site in May an equally devastating claim: 55 percent of conservative activists and Tea Partiers polled by Richard Viguerie’s ConservativeHQ.com responded that they, ‘would vote for a third-party or independent candidate’ if Romney were the nominee. In simple terms, the most conservative Evangelical leaders are casting Romney as the “Other.” Not as bad as a Kenyan Muslim to be sure, but in the same genre of unacceptable candidates. Beyond the theological issues, the political implications of this line of thought are devastating for Romney. No Republican candidate since Ronald Reagan paid homage to the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority in the 1980 election, has made it to the White House without carrying the Evangelical vote by dominant margins. The idea that in 21st century America a person can be disqualified for the presidency based on his religion is outrageous. Religious prejudice against Romney is as repulsive as the Tea Party’s frequent flirtations with anti-Obama racism. Romney by all accounts is a decent man. He should be given the chance to compete for the presidency on the merits of his ideas — his religion is not a legitimate criteria to evaluate his fitness for the presidency. And those who seek to create a theocratic test for presidential candidates should spend some time reading the U.S. Constitution. Article 6 clearly states: The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States . From the very beginning of our Republic, the Founders’ worried about the kind of religious intolerance now being directed at Mitt Romney. As President George Washington wrote : If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution. Robert Jeffress’ anti-Mormon bigotry is exactly the kind of “spiritual tyranny” that George Washington warned us about. It has no place in American politics and GOP primary voters should reject it for what it is: un-American. See the original post here: Fernando Espuelas: The Mormon in the Room
