Stupak and Slaughter: Stalking Horses for Socialism


Integrity?  Missed it by that much.
You didn’t hear much this weekend about the blatant unconstitutionality of using the “Reconciliation” process to pass the Senate health care bill.
Why?  Because compared to the atrocity of the “deem and pass” (aka Demonpass) gambit proposed by Rules Chair Louise Slaughter, the misuse of reconciliation seemed like the very model [...]

Rather Bizarre: Dan and Watermellongate


Rhonda Robinson did a nice job of detailing Dan Rather’s strange outing on the Chris Matthews show last weekend.  The lamestream media has ignored something that would have gotten any Republican run out of town on a rail when Dan said:
RATHER: [Barack Obama is] “…an ineffective leader who couldn’t sell watermelons if you gave him [...]

Heart and Soul: Remembering a Dissident


Let me join David Swindle in saying that you owe it to yourself to read Jamie Glazov’s warm and gripping tribute to his father, Yuri Glazov, a scholar and dissident who stood up to the Soviet machine even as it moved to crush him.
David writes, “Jamie has finally written the kind of piece I’ve been [...]

The Audacity of Nope: Chris Matthews Thinks Scott Brown Should Wait Untill His Career is Over to Write a Book—Unlike Barack Obama


The New Mark Twain?
Newly minted Senator Scott Brown has been offered a book deal, and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews thinks he should just say no:
MATTHEWS: Time for the “Sideshow.”We learned today that Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, who has been a senator for just 35 days, has a book deal.

Newsbusters Treats “The Good Wife” Badly


Christine Baranski co-stars as an ultra-liberal lawyer in “The Good Wife”  starring Julianna Margulies (background)
It’s hard to overestimate the great job generally done by The Media Research Center and their blog Newsbusters in general, and Brent Baker in particular, in rooting out liberal bias in the news and entertainment media.  But every once in a [...]

Foreign Terrorists Deserve Representation; but the Cheneys are Nonpersons: Meltdown with(out) Keith Olbermann Part 38


Under Stalin—and the Soviet system in general—someone who fell into disfavor by the ruling Party could become a “nonperson.”  They weren’t just thrown out of power or persecuted, it was as though they did not exist.
While MSNBC hosts pay a lot of attention to Dick Cheney, making him a nonperson is their goal.  Once, while [...]

Lamestream Media Ignores Congressmen Calling for Exoneration of Navy SEALs in “Fat Lip” Court Martial


Navy SEAL Matthew McCable listens at the press conference
The mainstream media, who love stories of the falsely accused, who have given publicity to every cop killer befriended by radicals and celebrities, basically ignored yesterday’s press conference by 3 Republican congressmen, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California; Rep. Dan Burton, R-Indiana; and Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, demanding that [...]

Opponents of Government Health Care are “Sub-human” and “Ghouls”—Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 37


Coming soon to a Tea Party near you?
A week ago Keith Olbermann slandered the Founders by falsely claiming…
OLBERMANN: Not very many of the founding fathers were evolved enough to believe that black people were actually people.
But this week, Olbermann denied the humanity of people who dare to disagree with him on nationalizing the [...]

Democrat Plan to Jail Interrogators for Being Mean to Terrorists Stopped by Hoekstra


Baghdad Jim’s attack on the CIA was smacked down by Pete Hoekstra yesterday.
While most of the politically aware public, and all of the news organizations, were focused on the Obama/Republican Health Care Summit, radicals in the House of Representatives tried to push an amendment that banned such “degrading” procedures as “threatening” a terrorist detainee, or, [...]

Some of My Best Guests are Black: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann, Part 36


Just here to make you feel better about yourself, Keith.
Last week, Keith Olbermann stepped in it with a race-baiting rant that accused the Tea Parties of being racist because they are supposedly white people “surrounded by people who look exactly like you.”
When various conservative bloggers, including me, called him on the fact that MSNBC’s anchor [...]
