John McCain: I was Misled on Bank Bailout – Arizona Republic

Commentary: George Will Knocks it Out of the Park


by Peter Wehner The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) gathering this weekend included some odd moments, some odd speakers, and some odd outcomes. But it also included some fine moments and impressive speeches — especially one fantastic address by columnist George Will. In his remarks, Will laid out the fundamental difference between conservatism and modern-day […]

CPAC – Senator Jim DeMint continues…


“Every Congressman and Senator takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution.  I think it’s time they started taking that oath seriously.  Freedom includes the freedom for mismanaged institutions to fail.  There is a battle raging in Washington now between those who want to defend the Constitution and those who wish to disregard it.

Liz Cheney: ‘Biden Has Famously Tenuous Relationship With Reality’


I had the great privilege of meeting Liz Cheney and hearing her speak at the Red State convention in Atlanta this past August. She’s surprisingly tiny, but, in that small package, is an incredible mind and a hell of a backbone. I adore her and am so glad to [...]

Eric Alterman: A Symbol of the Left’s Arrogance


After our very own Editor-in-Chief David Horowitz wrote a post blasting progressive columnist and Professor of literature Eric Alterman, I sent the latter an email, inviting him to respond to Horowitz’s post right here, at NewsReal Blog. Why? Well, because we, unlike most progressives, mean it when we say we encourage debate.
Alterman emailed me back [...]

Meghan: Cover Girl for New Progressive Movement or Cool Factor for GOP?


Just Me & My Progressive Posse
Meghan McCain announced this past week, on the far-from-reality show “The View”, that she considers herself a “progressive” Republican. Having heard many of her witticisms in the past, this came as no great shock to me.
But perhaps I am being too hasty in discounting Meghan’s philosophy. Perhaps she is more [...]

NewsReal Contest: What is the Most Amazing Example of Leftist Condescension?


This morning I sent an email to David Horowitz ranting about one of my friends who was unhappy about me working for the DHFC. Specifically my friend didn’t care for my allegedly destructive, over-the-top, dogmatic rhetoric. He had to set me straight for how I was poisoning the world with my over-the-top denunciations of totalitarianism.
David [...]

Olbermann: There Are Republicans Under My Bed!


Not really, but Keith Olbermann’s latest conspiracy theory rivals such an absurd idea.
During last night’s Countdown, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann attacked those “crazy” conservatives for what he perceives as a right-wing conspiracy to convince Americans his show’s ratings are plummeting and his popularity is fading. Of course, the origin of his latest fanaticsm is none [...]
