Obama Confirms Closeness to ACORN in Video


On the campaign trail in 2008 then-candidate Barack Obama did his best to distance himself from his past involvement with the radical advocacy group ACORN:
My relationship to ACORN is pretty straightforward. When… it’s probably 13 years ago, when I was still practicing law, I represented ACORN. And my partner in that representation was the U.S. [...]

Punk Max Blumenthal Gets Punk’d At CPAC


A few hours before Glenn Beck brought the house down Saturday at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)*, conservative Internet entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart gave the clownish left-wing performance artist Max Blumenthal a much deserved dressing down in public.
Adding to David Swindle’s insightful observations, I witnessed the verbal sparring in person in the lobby of Washington, D.C.’s Marriott [...]

The Left’s haters continue their smear campaign.

Media Matters mocks Glenn Beck’s charts with chart about Glenn Beck’s charts


Media Matters believes that this is an actual “thing”
What does George Soros get for the millions of dollars he donates to “right wing media watchdog” Media Matters?
As we’ve noted before, Soros & Co. pays three individuals to listen to Rush Limbaugh’s show every day and transcribe his jokes — even though that’s already a Limbaugh [...]

So Now We’re Dictators, Too?


The Daily Beast just can’t get enough of the “extremist!” meme.  Today they have not one, but two articles proclaiming that this week’s suicide/plane attack on a Texas office building is a sign of growing far-right mania.  Reading Joe Stack’s own manifesto and Michelle Horstman’s reaction to it should provide an antidote for that smear, [...]

Will the Fringe Hijack the Tea Parties?


When I was a junior communist living in 1960’s Canada, one of the few constants in my life was the unwelcome presence of Maoists at pretty much any gathering I attended. The cause de jour didn’t matter; it could have been “Get American Potatoes Out of Our Poutine!” It was all the same to them. [...]

Joe Klein Unhinged: Attacks Jewish Magazine For “Bullying” And “Half-Crazed Macho Crusaderism”


Time Magazine columnist Joe Klein has expanded the targets of his venom.  Not content with insulting the Tea Party Movement, Fox News,  Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the average American “dodo,” Klein is now going after the state of Israel and its supporters.
Klein has recommended that Obama should “engage” Hamas, the terrorist thugs running Gaza, [...]

“The Coming Insurrection,” Joe Stack and Anarchy


Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn’t so, but violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer. – Joe Stack
When Glenn Beck  brought up the book “The Coming Insurrection” on one of last week’s shows once again, expressing his grave concern about its’ content, I never expected [...]

Worst Research in the Wooorrrrllld! Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 34


Hey, Keith, this is not a rifle!
In his latest great Bob Lee Swagger thriller, I Sniper, author Stephen Hunter has a character state sarcastically, “Someone once defined a newspaper gun story as ’something with a mistake in it.’”
You’d think that if Keith Olbermann was going to mount his high horse, do a superior act and [...]

Keep the Fringe on the Fringe, Not at CPAC


Back in December, NewsReal’s own Ryan Mauro took the Conservative Political Action Conference to task for accepting the crackpot John Birch Society as a sponsor of CPAC 2010, calling it a “monumentally stupid decision” that would give the Left plenty of ammo for their current “conservatives are extreme!” narrative.
With CPAC set to begin tomorrow, The [...]
