Glenn Beck and Goldline, the Weiner Link: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 49


Just to prove to David Swindle that I take his injunctions against time-wasting debates seriously, I am going to open with a skill-testing question.
I walk into Tiffany’s—flush with blogging income–and purchase their very reasonable 18k Gold Paloma’s Marrakesh Bangle (inspired by the intriguing patterns of Morocco) for $4,950. Later I discover to my horror that [...]

Greek Premier: My Socialist Country’s Screwups Are America’s Fault


In order to distract from the grave fiscal crisis caused by Greece’s cradle-to-grave socialism, Greek socialist prime minister George Papandreou is threatening to sue American banks.
Like his father before him who was also prime minister, Papandreou is the leader of the political party PASOK, which is the Panhellenic Socialist Movement. He is also president of the Socialist International. [...]

More abortion doctors have been murdered on ‘Law & Order’ than in real life


Does anybody really care that Law & Order is finally going off the air after 21 years? I don’t sense the pangs of nostalgia that usually accompany such an announcement. News that Mary Tyler Moore, Cheers or M*A*S*H were going dark prompted lots of Essays About The Show’s Enormous Cultural Impact. Law & Order? Not [...]

The Bible Does Not Command Government-Imposed Redistribution of Wealth


Yesterday, The Huffington Post ran an article by a professor of international studies at UNC Chapel Hill, Jonathan Weiler, who claimed that
the right’s hostility to “socialism” is quite striking given its simultaneous insistence that our first duty as Americans is to pay fealty to God’s law, which explicitly calls for re-distributing wealth
Reverend Jim Wallis, the leftist [...]

Gold-Plated Stupidity: Media Matters’ Ludicrous Attack On Beck


Will Bunch of left-wing character assassination site Media Matters for America has penned what has to be one of the dumbest items I have ever read from the George Soros steno pool.
In a blog post titled, “Beck fans strike gold…for now,” Bunch argues that Glenn Beck is causing a speculative bubble in gold by hyping doom [...]

Stop Using the Nazi Card


Few things irritate me as much as when self-righteous commentators condemn their opponents by comparing them to Nazis, which actually is a type of Nazi tactic itself. Nazis and other tyrants use generalizations and flimsy comparisons to denigrate their enemies.
Their tactic is simple, yet effective: First, pick the most disgusting form of life you can [...]

Beck Hits Back At Media Matters


It’s nice to see Glenn Beck finally hit back at the George Soros steno pool known as Media Matters for America. Media Matters, of course, is the left-wing character assassination factory that day in and day out smears conservatives. Its mission is to stamp out what it calls “conservative misinformation.”
Beck noted that the Huffington Post [...]

U.S. Government Says Chavez Poses Threat, Media Matters Laughs Uproariously


NOTE: This is a slightly modified version of a post I put up at BigJournalism. One of the professional Media Matters character assassins, Simon Maloy, whose job consists of smearing whomever the group’s masters at Democracy Alliance require, labeled me an “all-around clown” for defending Beck’s statement. I replied on Twitter in an NSFW manner (writers who [...]

Glenn Beck Gives Obama The Silent Treatment


In a visually compelling format Glenn Beck heaped justified ridicule on one of the many false precepts of progressivism, to wit, that it is somehow “unfair” that some people have more money than others.
To do this, Beck gave President Obama (and his audience) the silent treatment on his TV show. (video link)
As a video clip showed the president [...]
