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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

More about Nielson Ratings, from a former industry insider


I got an email today I’d like to share with you:
Hi Kathy …
Your comment today about Glenn Beck’s “falling” Nielsen ratings was bang on, especially when you wondered if the recession has some people cutting off the cable TV.
It does, but it’s a tiny bit more complex than that.
* Nielsen’s NATIONAL ratings are measured via [...]

Joe Klein Reads Off His Napkin: Beck and Palin “Rub Right Up Close To Being Seditious”


Times columnist Joe Klein never misses an opportunity to make a fool of himself.  His latest bufoonery was displayed on NBC’s April 18 edition of “The Chris Matthews Show.”   
I did a little bit of research just before this show – it’s on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition which is conduct [...]

Glenn Beck: Congressman Paul Ryan is Wrong about Progressivism


Our favorite talk show host Glenn Beck recently criticized Paul Ryan, for giving a speech in which he tried to rehabilitate progressives such as Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Beck’s criticism came after he read this post over at the popular conservative Hot Air blog, in which Ryan is praised for being a “real progressive.” Unlike Ryan, Beck [...]
