Is Obama “Hostile” to Religion? No, But He Certainly Manipulates It


Does Barack Obama have a problem with religion?
Well, okay, there’s the obvious one, but Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee recently sat down to discuss whether or not a recent White House meeting with a group of atheist leaders suggests anything more:
HANNITY: The Obama administration earlier today rolled out the red carpet for a coalition of [...]

Limbaugh vs. Avlon on Hoping Obama Fails…Again


So much for objectivity.  Daily Beast columnist John Avlon recently took yet another shot at Rush Limbaugh for his infamous wish for Barack Obama: “I hope he fails.” In his usual defiant style, El Rushbo took it as a compliment, spurring an outraged lecture on patriotism from Avlon:
When a news organization asked a group of [...]

The Ever-Expanding Scope of Palin Derangement Syndrome


Meghan Stapleton, advisor and spokeswoman to Governor Sarah Palin, resigned yesterday to spend more time with her family, and we all know what that means: another media feeding frenzy.  A recent Daily Beast interview with Stapleton suggests her departure is an essentially unremarkable development over the normal course of a political career, but that won’t [...]

No, Sean, Carter Isn’t Distancing Himself from Obama


Mediaite is calling Sean Hannity to task for a misleading characterization of recent remarks from former President Jimmy Carter.  It seems Foreign Affairs recently warned that the worst-case scenario of the Obama Administration’s foreign policy was that the current president would end up looking like the thirty-ninth.  Naturally, Carter was none too thrilled about being [...]

In Defense of Partisanship


One of my biggest pet peeves over the years has been incessant hand-wringing over “partisanship” in politics, so reading Tunku Varadarajan’s latest column on The Daily Beast was a breath of fresh air.  He argues that partisanship isn’t necessarily such a bad thing:
What’s so wrong with political and legislative partisanship, anyway? It’s the best thing [...]

The Bloody Cost of “Diversity”

How the Left’s hands are soaked in the blood of Nidal Hasan’s innocent victims.

Freedom Center Students


The left has already begun the transformation of many K-12 classrooms into indoctrination projects for its agendas. Concerted campaigns have been launched by the left at high schools geared to converting students into activists against the war and discouraging them from volunteering to serve. Radical pedagogy exemplified by the “Teaching for Social Justice” regimen has [...]

The Bloody Cost of “Diversity”


We’ve known from the start that there were warning signs of Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s Islamic fanaticism well before the Fort Hood shootings, signs we suspected were ignored due to political correctness.  But last night, Sean Hannity called attention to a recent Boston Globe report confirming our worst fears.  The report claims that Army officials [...]

Rescuing the Founders from Their Paulestinian Hijackers


Crackpot Ron Paul and his disciples have wrapped themselves in the American flag so tightly you’d think they were direct descendants of Paul Revere.  Whether it’s Paul claiming to “advocate the same foreign policy the founding fathers would,” or his fans claiming he fathered the tea party movement (a claim tea partiers in Paul’s home [...]

So Now We’re Dictators, Too?


The Daily Beast just can’t get enough of the “extremist!” meme.  Today they have not one, but two articles proclaiming that this week’s suicide/plane attack on a Texas office building is a sign of growing far-right mania.  Reading Joe Stack’s own manifesto and Michelle Horstman’s reaction to it should provide an antidote for that smear, [...]
