“Democrats” Prepare to Steal Elections While Republicans Hide Under Their Beds


Lefty propaganda like this is only half-right: many Republicans don’t prey on fear, they suffer from it. It’s days like this – days when we see rampant corruption running virtually unchallenged – when I’m tempted to throw up my hands and ask why I even bother with politics. There is no issue that more clearly [...]

Blogging Fail: Crooks and Liars Preaches to the Leftist Choir About Obama’s Centrism (That Doesn’t Exist)


According to Blogging 101, when criticizing someone for saying something that isn’t true, it’s generally a good idea to point out how the alleged falsehood is, y’know, false. But I guess things work a little differently at Crooks and Liars. Today, they’re ticked off that Sean Hannity and Brit Hume have the gall to suggest [...]

Peter Beinart: Funding NPR Is Your Patriotic Duty, You Ignoramus


…except when it’s obedience to subsidized leftist propaganda. Firing somebody because you choose to interpret a single statement out of context and in the worst possible light is bad enough, but what makes National Public Radio’s firing of Juan Williams over a recent “O’Reilly Factor” appearance especially odious is that they’re pulling crap like this [...]

A Ron Paul Apologist Demonstrates an Important Truth of Conservatism…Just Not the One He Meant To


I knew my recent Ron Paul-bashing post would get the Paulites into a tizzy—they’ve been as charming as ever in the comments, and now Wesley Messamore at Young Americans for Liberty, an activist group started by young Paul drones, is taking shots at me for my “specious and empty charges” against the demented one. But [...]

Aqua Buddha Redux: What Conservatives Should Learn from…Rand Paul?


No, you haven’t stumbled upon a different website. We here at NewsRealBlog have plenty of problems with the Kentucky Republican, but this week I have no choice but to admit that there’s one area in which he might be able to teach his fellow midterm election candidates a thing or two: dealing with demagogic Democrats. [...]

The Problem With Personal Attacks: Accuracy, Not Subject Matter


The problem with this image is that it’s dishonest – not that it’s “personal.” There’s a lot of confusion regarding rhetoric in American politics. Everybody professes to hating attack ads – and not without just cause – but do we hate them for the right reasons? Today, we have another opportunity to confront the question, [...]

A Refresher on Church-State Separation with Michele Bachmann


There’s no denying that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is one of the Right’s rising stars, and at the Daily Beast, Shushannah Walshe has an interesting report on the congresswoman’s rise to power and personal motivations. The most specific and controversial objection to Bachmann addressed in the piece surrounds a counseling center run by her husband: [...]

The Top 8 Reasons Ron Paul Is an Abomination Who Should Be Cast Out of Decent Society


Let’s talk about Ron Paul. It’s no secret that the Texas congressman isn’t the most popular guy in this corner of the blogosphere, though despite NewsRealBlog’s many, many posts explaining why, we’re still subjected to wild speculation about our “real” motives—the Paulite hordes routinely diagnose their opponents’ “true” motives as everything from hating limited government [...]

Hot Post: The Shameless Hypocrisy of Character Assassin David Frum


NewsRealBlog’s shocking report on Alex Knepper’s pro-pedophile tendencies has received plenty of coverage in the blogosphere, and today we finally received a response from David Frum. At the end of the piece, Frum reveals that because an “agreement [could not] be reached on the moral and ethical standards” that ought to govern the FrumForum community, [...]
