Dana Loesch v. Ed Schultz battle it out on Obamacare in a contrasting home-and-home match

Recently, on their respective television shows, Dana Loesch and Ed Schultz debate the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) (aka Obamacare).

Round 1 (MSNBC's The Ed Show):
On Thursday, 11.13.2014, Schultz hosted Loesch, Community Health TV CEO Dr. Corey Hebert, and MSNBC's Krystal Ball. Of course, as usual, Loesch was acting like a rude screaming banshee on major-level national television by filibustering the host and the other two guests.

Left of Center at Crooks and Liars on her Ed Show appearance:
Dana Loesch, author of "Hands Off My Gun" begins by trying to discredit Ed by using the phrase, "those are White House Numbers." As if these were different than the CBO numbers he was talking about, then she tries to play the "my friends and family are all losing their healthcare" game and has not one official fact she can cite.

She dodges the question, 'are there fewer insured than there were one year ago before the implementation of Obamacare?' Instead of answering the questions, she brings up the Politifact lie of the year, "If you like your doctor, you can keep him" in a sad attempt to distract Ed from the question, 'do fewer people have insurance now than one year ago.' Still, she fails to answer the simple question, are there fewer uninsured than one year ago?

I honestly can't get through this awful fiction-festival any more. I'm disgusted these morons get to be in charge of 70% of the state legislatures, a majority in the House AND Senate. Her interview just depicts how intellectually and factually bankrupt this party is. Poor Krystal Ball and Corey Hebert had to combat her fictitious bullshit and refute claims of fantastical origins. The Republicans can't tell us what we're going to keep on Obamacare, just what's going to be cut. There was at least five minutes of her pointless obstruction and it let's us know there is no reasoning with people living in Crazytown, Fantasyland, USA.

From the 11.13.2014 edition of MSNBC's The Ed Show:

PunditFact on Loesch's Obamacare Lies:
Loesch said that 4.7 million people have lost their health insurance due to Obamacare. That number matches one cited by the Associated Press based on preliminary estimates and incomplete data. The best estimate from independent researchers is that perhaps 2.6 million people received notices that their health care insurance policies were being canceled. 
However, Loesch spoke as if these people, whatever their number, did not find replacement coverage. In reality, fewer than 1 million people who had been part of the individual insurance market ended up with no coverage at all. Given the constant churn in that market, it is unlikely that the Affordable Care Act caused all of them to be without health insurance. 
Loesch’s number is off, both in terms of the cancellations and what people did afterward. Still, the new law did hurt some people. 
We rate the claim Mostly False.

Round 2 (TheBlazeTV's Dana):
In contrast to the shoutfest that Loesch filibustered her way into being the dominant voice on The Ed Show segment featuring the two last week, the interview on Dana had a much calmer tone.

Josh Feldman at Mediaite on Schultz v. Loesch Part 2:
Ed Schultz hosted BlazeTV’s Dana Loesch on his MSNBC show last week and things ended up getting pretty damn heated. They fought each other and Schultz said Loesch was being rude and “unworkable.”
So today, they faced off for Round 2 on Loesch’s BlazeTV show, and… it was actually very respectful and no one raised their voices at each other.
He repeatedly said he’s not completely thrilled with the law, but as first steps go, it’s a good start.

From the 11.17.2014 edition of TheBlazeTV's Dana:

In both rounds, Loesch had the lies and Schultz had the truth on his side.


On FNC's Fox and Friends to hawk her book, Dana Loesch says "gun control is the real war on women"

After a couple months hiatus from updating DanaBusted.Blogspot.com, we are back in business, and as usual, Dana Loesch is telling fibs to the national audience.

Today, while hawking her book Hands Off My Gun (which came out today) on Fox and Friends, Loesch was peddling lies to advance her gun fetishist agenda and also falsely claiming that "gun control is the real war on women."

Vegasjessie at Crooks and Liars:
She's just so pathetic to this condescending gun oil salesman and 2nd Amendment grifter, how could Schultz be so naive to think the DNC can defeat Koch money? Perhaps Loesch is right, but she wasn't on the curvy couch to forecast the midterms. She was still peddling her latest book, and like any good Republican, trying to fleece the public of every penny to promote the agenda of the NRA. 


It's very hard to compete with the liberally-minded society because Republicans don't know how to compete with progressive "pop culture." Republicans are "afraid to engage and don't know how to engage." Gee, we hardly noticed, Dana. You mean a KKK Teaparty gathering doesn't make for a good Hollywood plot?
The New York ruling on those denied their 2nd Amendment remedies is now a slippery slope to full disarmament of America. She believes there's a war on women when anyone's rights to own a gun are limited. She said that firearms are the ultimate equalizer, and she gave her height and weight, said she felt six foot two and 250 pounds, when she's got her "equalizer." She said we've always had the right to be armed, even before we had the right to vote.
Hey, Dana, aren't you the one that's instigating a war on women because of your anti-reproductive choice/anti-contraception/anti-birth control stances?

"Josie" called in to KFTK's The Dana Show to give her pro-Wilson/anti-Brown slant of events in Ferguson

On last Friday's edition of The Dana Show, "Josie" tells her side of the story of how Michael Brown got shot by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, and of course, her story is full of lies, as she DEFENDED Officer Wilson's decision to shoot Brown.

TheBlaze (where Loesch is employed at):
The alleged friend of Wilson continued: “So he goes in reverse back to them, tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again, you know, he tried to get out. He stands up. And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car, punches him in the face and then, of course, Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point, he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away, and the gun goes off.” 
The caller went on to claim that Brown then ran from the officer, making it about 35 feet away before Wilson got up and ordered the suspect to “freeze.”
“Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something,” she concluded. “The final shot was in the forehead, and then he fell about two or three feet in front of the officer.”

"Josie" was indeed lying out of her ass, as is anyone who sticks up for murdering Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.

Kaili Joy Gray at Wonkette for the REAL truth about "Josie":

 We can all go home now, because Tucker Carlson’s cesspool of journamalism has a hot scoop that PROVES Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is definitely not guilty of murdering unarmed teen Michael Brown.

Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that what Josie told Loesch matches what Wilson says happened during his encounter with Brown.
According to Josie, Wilson, a six-year police veteran, claims Brown assaulted and then “bum rushed” him during their encounter on August 9.

Hang tight, we need to bust out some charts and graphs and an abacus to follow this logic. Some lady named “Josie” — oh, right, “Josie,” she knows everything! — called Dana Loesch’s radio show to tell her version of Officer Wilson’s version of the events that occurred on the day Officer Wilson killed Michael Brown. Was “Josie” there? No, but she heard it from a very good, very unbiased source who was also not there: Mrs. Officer Wilson! And just in case you are questioning whether “Josie” really is a friend of a friend of a friend who knows a guy who knows a thing, she called Loesch’s programming director back after dropping this hot scoop to insist “that her relationship to the named officer is legitimate.” That definitely seals it. You know “Josie” would never lie about something like that.
At least Loesch had the semi-decency to admit she had not vetted “Josie” and could not yet confirm whether her story of Mrs. Wilson’s story of Officer Wilson’s story is in any way accurate. The Daily Caller felt no such journalistic obligation. And in case the air-tight report from “Josie” doesn’t convince you, the Daily Caller also has a tweet that DEFINITELY proves … something.

@MiamiLib also smacks down Loesch and "Josie"'s lies:

Dana Loesch on the Ferguson Shooting:


In the aftermath of two journalists arrested last night in Ferguson, Dana Loesch ridicules them as "attention-seekers"

Last night, in reaction to two journalists (HuffPost's Ryan J. Reilly and WaPo's Wesley Lowery) being arrested (and later released), Tea Party shrieker Dana Loesch defended the Ferguson Police Department's decision to arrest the two journalists.

No, Dana, they did NOT hijacked the light onto themselves, you lying turd!

Washington Post's Lowery isn't buying any of Loesch's grade-A++ bullshit lies:

HuffPost's Reilly also nails Loesch for lying to the American people:


In the wake of SCOTUS's heinous Burwell v. Hobby Lobby decision, the Loesch duo defend Hobby Lobby

In the wake of SCOTUS' heinous anti-women ruling on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, TheBlazeTV's Dana Loesch is defending Hobby Lobby's hypocritical decision NOT to provide birth control (which they once used to provide).

During the past couple of days, she and her husband Chris were celebrating the idiotic pro-Hobby Lobby SCOTUS ruling:

First, the ringleader, Dana:

Who's taking facts now? Not you, Dana!

"Women's rights remain unchanged?" What a big fucking whopper that lie is. Women's reproductive rights are under attack because of the pro-HL ruling.

Her husband Chris piled on the anti-women/pro-Hobby Lobby cheerleading:

@TruthNWisdom is a truth-telling hero, unlike scum like you and your wife and their ilk.

He's repeating the baseless lie that "Planned Parenthood kills minority babies."

WRONG, Chris, this SCOTUS ruling INVITES the corporation into a women's bedroom.

The idiots that make up a huge constituency belong to the GOP/Tea Party, NOT Liberals/Progressives and Democrats.

There's religious zealots in the world, and that's folks like you, Mr. Chris.

On Monday's edition of The Glenn Beck Program, while subbing for Lonesome Rhodes Beck, Loesch deliberately lied about the negative impact on women due to the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby ruling in order to mock the boycotters of Hobby Lobby.

From the 06.30.2014 edition of TheBlazeTV's The Glenn Beck Program:

On last night's Hannity, Loesch debated with former National Organization For Women head Patricia Ireland on the ruling.

Ellen at Newshounds.us on the segment:
Last night, it was the Hannity show’s turn, via a “debate” about “some of the most outrageous rhetoric” from the left” – which just happened to solely include comments from NOW president Terry O’Neill. 
Hannity chose for his debate the ever hate-filled and hate mongering Dana Loesch. Loesch seems to particularly despise feminists. On The Kelly File in April, she sneered that she didn’t know the goal of another feminist conference other than “to raise up the next generation of women into old cat ladies.” She added, “It was like watching Mean Girls with less attractive women. …You don’t have to “get” progressives. They “get” themselves.” She's a charmer, alright. 
Not surprisingly, Loesch brought her special brand of hostility to this segment. She started off with a condescending response to the other guest, former NOW president Patricia Ireland. “So the idea that women are somehow being denied anything – Look, my rights have not changed after this ruling, Sean, and women who work for Hobby Lobby, they still have access to birth control, as provided by Hobby Lobby,” Loesch said.

Of course, DL had to act like a smart-ass on national television and Ireland was correct.
