Ramesh Ponnuru: Why the GOP Shouldn’t Get Too Confident – Time.com


Republicans can hardly believe their good fortune. First, Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota announced that he would not run for re-election, giving Republicans a good shot at taking his seat. Then the Democratic governor of Colorado, Bill Ritter, said he was bowing out. Ditto the Democrats’ top candidate for governor in Michigan. And […]

A Marine Shares the Good News in a Letter from Afghanistan


Wouldn’t it be nice if the media reported ALL the news from the front, rather than just the bad news?
War is horrible of course, but even under terrible conditions, our troops have made much progress thus far, and they’re justly proud of what they’ve accomplished. As a former Marine myself, I tend to pay extra [...]

Beck Is The Media Matters “Misinformer” of the Year


In 2009 Glenn Beck became a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and the American left’s Public Enemy Number One, surpassing fellow conservatives Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O’Reilly in terms of pure hateful bile generated.
The hysteria infecting among left-bloggers was roughly proportionate to Beck’s effectiveness in [...]

Genius Envy: Would-Be Lieberman Assailant Asks, “Where’s the Hate Speech on Joe Lieberman?”


Three full days after he wondered why no one had punched Joe Lieberman (“Traitor Joe,” as he calls him), Ed Schultz of MSNBC’s The Ed Show insisted no one on the Left had ever defamed the distinguished senator from Connecticut. Last night, Schultz asked former Republican Congressman Ernest Istook about Democratic infighting over the health [...]

Glenn Beck’s “Midas Touch” Hurts His Credibility


There’s no joy in Mudville when I have to call out a fellow conservative. In his Dec. 10 episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart (NOT the conservative in question) launched into yet another satirical diatribe targeting Glenn Beck (the conservative in question). Nothing new there, except this time Stewart was right on the money – or [...]

Progressives go to War over…War


The purpose of all war is peace—Saint Augustine: The City of God
While President Barack Obama was in Oslo, Norway yesterday accepting his Nobel Peace Prize (while at the same time justifying his troop surge in Afghanistan), back home Congressman and fellow progressive Democrat Dennis Kucinich was busy metaphorically pulling the red carpet out from under [...]

I wish I could take credit for that line, but it was the fellow behind the now-defunct blog Beautiful Atrocities.
Sadly, I also can’t lay claim to the word “gaslighting,” a “form of intimidation or psychological abuse in which false information is presented to the victim, making them doubt their own memory and perception.”

West Point “Days of Rage”: Speaking Lies to Power


In 1969 a brilliant law student stood in a park in Chicago and gave a speech about Vietnam.  Her friends burned flags and hurled obscenities at the U.S. Military.  The United States fell prey to this Marxist propaganda, and millions of our fellow human beings were slaughtered or enslaved when we abandoned the Vietnamese people.

Shocking: Leftist Jon Stewart Talks about ClimateGate


It’s unbelievable, but while the entire Left has decided to ignore ClimateGate,  leftist comedian Jon Stewart broke ranks. On his show yesterday, Stewart shattered the silence surrounding the scandal and actually criticized the scientists involved. It’s yet another sign that Conservatives are mistaken to believe that the host of “The Daily Show” is one and [...]
