The Right Needs to Stop Acting Like the Left if it Wants the High Ground


Have you ever felt like people meant well, but they just aren’t helping your cause?
I have no desire to attack the Right. If anything, I will do everything in my power to encourage anyone and everyone who is willing to work to replace this sliver of the far-Left that is currently running our country. However, [...]

To Pull or Not to Pull: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Runs Clip of Sen. McCain Saying Its Time We Pulled the Trigger on Iran


I just caught the YouTube video of Sen. John McCain saying that it was time to pull the trigger on Iran.  From the context, of course, McCain is merely saying that we need to impose strict sanctions on Iran – not that it is time to bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran. 
Nevertheless, from the point of [...]

Beck Slaughters Huffington’s False Claim: Clearing up the Argument between Glenn Beck and Arianna Huffington


In a previous post I discussed the confrontation between Fox News President Roger Ailes and Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington on last Sunday’s This Week on ABC.  Let me repeat the relevant portion of the transcript from the video embedded in that post.
HUFFINGTON: Well, Roger, it’s not a question of picking a fight. And aren’t [...]

Glenn Beck: Did Nostradamus Write Your Opening Music?


I started listening to  The Glenn Beck Program in 2003.  One of the things that attracted me to the show was the opening music. It went something like “Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck. Yeah, he likes the sound of his name being rung..” or something like that. It was light-hearted and self deprecating- just like Glenn.
Over [...]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: January 27, 2010


Another reason why radicals believe that their goals justify criminal means, and also why they can be relied on to lie and steal and, in the right context, either commit actual murder or justify murders when committed by their political friends, is because in their own minds they are engaged in a war for “social [...]

Rush Limbaugh Responds to Abe Foxman


Earlier this week, I posed a political question in the process and in the context of trying to help a friend and my audience understand the concept that people ask me about a lot: “Why are so many Jewish people liberal?” And a friend of mine — a good friend of mine, Norman Podhoretz — […]

The Good, the Bad and Oliver Stone, Part 2: Hitler Was Only Following the Evil Capitalists’ Orders


Click here for Part 1 of “The Good, the Bad, and Oliver Stone”
Thank heaven we no longer have to rely on scholars and historians, traditionally restricted by a silly standard called objectivity, to explain the past for us and put under-reported world events “in context.” Previously we, like the prisoners in Plato’s metaphorical cave, have [...]

You Can’t Squeeze Brains from a Stone


Lori Ziganto at iOwnTheWorld.com

Oh, Hollywood! Never have so many been paid so much for so little worth. Their lack of rational thought astounds even me sometimes, and I have very low expectations. In fact, I propose a new term to replace the ickier bathroom version: Stone for Brains. Oliver Stone, that is, the man who never [...]

Hey, Hey, LBJ: How Many Kids Did You Starve Today?


Last week, one of our hottest discussions on NewsReal involved the controversy over Bishop Thomas Tobin recommending that Congressman Patrick Kennedy not partake of communion as long as he is a proponent of abortion.
Former Johnson Administration official, Joseph Califano Jr. had a rather chilling op-ed in response to this principled action by the Bishop in [...]
