If President Obama has his way, Attorney General Eric Holder will soon be joined at the Justice Department by another terrorist rights advocate, Dawn Johnsen. Obama has nominated her to lead the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. Given her opposition to enhanced interrogation of terrorist suspects, she provides yet another example that the Obama [...]
Joe Klein could not let it go. On the heels of his disastrous appearance on “The Factor” Monday night during which he viciously attacked Glenn Beck, he used the blog Swampland to display his arrogance towards the Fox News audience:
I was on Bill O’Reilly’s program last night, which was sort of hilarious. The most insufferable part [...]
Times Magazine’s Joe Klein is at it again. A few months ago he accused the Fox News network of sedition, while also insulting its viewers as too dumb to understand the “truth.” Appearing as a guest on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, Klein tried to temper his overall criticism of Fox News but launched a [...]
President Obama is suddenly listening to the outrage of New Yorkers over holding the trial of Khalid Sheik Mohammed in lower Manhattan. He has instructed Attorney General Eric Holder to find another location for the propaganda circus.
As a New Yorker, I’m glad that he is even willing to go that far, but as an American [...]
President Obama’s State of the Union address was a re-affirmation of the central role that he wants big federal government to play in our lives. Sure, he claimed that he feels our pain, but his seventy minute speech renewed his call for final passage of his health care initiative with the same tired and discredited arguments that [...]

Bill O’Reilly correctly observed last night that the Sunday morning news show hosts on the broadcast networks are letting down their viewers by not challenging the Obama mouthpieces enough in their interviews.
Case-in-point was David Gregory’s interview of Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, on “Meet The Press” this [...]
An update on yesterday’s post regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on campaign finance reform:
UPDATE: Victory for the First Amendment!
The Supreme Court has today removed the spending limitations on corporations who wish to spend on federal campaigns, so long as it is done independently of candidate organizations’ control.
“The censorship we now confront is vast in [...]
Bill O’Reilly joked the other night on “The Factor” that maybe the American Civil Liberties Union deserves a drone visit of its own, after mentioning the ACLU’s latest lawsuit regarding the predator drones being employed in Pakistan.
According to Fox News’ legal expert Kimberly Guilfoyle:
The ACLU wants President Obama to tell them everything in terms of civilian [...]
The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled a special sitting tomorrow. It usually does so only when a very important decision is announced.
The betting is that the Court is poised to announce its decision in the critical Citizens United campaign finance case. The result could be a major re-affirmation of the First Amendment, overturning precedents that had [...]
