Media Matters’ 9 Most Embarrassing Screw Ups


When I first started writing for NewsReal Blog, I was assigned the Media Matters beat, mocking and debunking those self-appointed “media watchdogs” of the Left. “But if you get burned out, we’ll understand,” my editor added. “That site is pretty toxic.” “I can handle it,” I chirped in my best “seasoned professional” voice. Oh well. [...]

Phase 2? South Park “Underpants Gnome” Business Plan Mystery Solved!


By me. Ha! You all know what I’m talking about. Now, I’ve stumbled upon the answer to the “?” part. Bear with me, ok? But it seems to go something like this: A guy writes this actual sentence: “This fatuous infatuation with the Constitution, particularly the 10th Amendment, is clearly the work of witches, wiccans [...]

George Soros’ 8 Most Despicable Acts (UPDATED AFTER THREAT BY SOROS’ LAWYERS)


Editor’s Note: This post has been revised since it was first published. Because its author, Kathy Shaidle, is Canadian she is not protected by the same first amendment and libel laws that Americans are. Thus despite the fact that the facts she presented have floated around the American blogosphere for years and were published in [...]

The Death Toll Rising: “3 Billion and Counting”


Earlier this month, we broke the news that Hollywood is producing a fawning biopic of Rachel Carson, whose 1962 book Silent Spring helped launch the modern environmental movement. Silent Spring focused on the supposed dangers of the pesticide DDT. Those dangers turned out to be highly exaggerated — but in the meantime, millions of Africans [...]

George Soros’ 8 Most Despicable Acts


Roger Simon has written: …were I a biographer — an occupation for which I have nowhere near the patience or perspicacity — [George] Soros would be my first choice for a subject. He is a paradigmatic figure for our times, a kind of a monster created in the twentieth century, inexorably metastasizing into the twenty-first. [...]

‘Fire’ has two meanings: Man loses job for burning Koran — until about 5PM tonight


At least, that’s my prediction. I give it until the end of the day. I say this because Derek Fenton — the man fired for burning a Koran at the September 11 rally against the “Ground Zero mosque” — worked for something called NJ Transit, which has “union” written all over it. Here’s NJ Transit’s [...]

Up next: Michael Moore, Oliver Stone give back their Oscars, box office receipts


Naw, just joshin’. But it would be fitting, given what happened this week. It sounded like a fake story from The Onion, but there was no punchline: Dictator Fidel Castro summoned an American reporter to Cuba to break the news that, hey, that whole socialism thing hadn’t really been such a smart idea. Now, I’ve [...]

Prescription for Obama: hire two new speechwriters and call me in the morning


Surely a well-read fellow like the Washington Post‘s Richard Cohen is familiar with Berthold Brecht’s famous condensation of the eternal fascist impulse into a single sardonic line: Wouldn’t it be easier to dissolve the people and elect another in their place? How then did Cohen submit the following line for publication without even a twitch? [...]

Top 6 Talk Radio Moments of This Week: Talk Radio Tackles Sharia, ‘Moderate’ Islam and the Ground Zero Mosque


I write a weekly recap for another website, putting together audio and webcam highlights from the week in conservative talk radio. I always have way more material than I can possibly use. And believe me, my friends and family get pretty sick of me trying to get all those leftovers out of my brain by [...]

Muslim Brotherhood infiltrates Canada with lawfare — and RCMP approval


Stop me if you’ve heard this one… On their websites, Canada’s highest profile Muslim groups boast about their affinities with the sinister Muslim Brotherhood — then deny it up and down when confronted. They also suddenly start bragging about all their charitable deeds in the community. Yeah, well: Al Capone started the first soup kitchen, [...]
