From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 23, 2009


Another of my books, “The Politics of Bad Faith,” was recently published in paperback. It consists of my intellectual framework for rejecting the left, and therefore examines the main political issues confronting my generation — the Cold War, the question of socialism and whether the ideals of the left are implicated in the crimes that [...]

At Media Matters, ‘Firing Squad’ Wears the Blindfolds


The more I think about Media Matters taking credit for the “firing” of Lou Dobbs, the stupider the situation gets.
Even if Media Matters is responsible for Dobbs’ departure (which I doubt), how pathetic and ineffectual does that make them look?
The George Soros Steno Pool are always the first to criticize Glenn Beck for supposedly trying [...]

Cass Sunstein’s Unrelenting Socialist Assault on the Constitution


Leftists keep arguing during the healthcare debate that healthcare is a “right.” The problem with this un-American line of thinking is that if there is a right, there is also a corresponding duty falling on someone else to provide it. (Cop arrests you, cop must Mirandize you. You have a right to vote so government must [...]

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 [...]

Genius Envy: War on Terror, No! War on “Conservadems,” Yes!


Leftists who decried the War on Terror now use the same terminology to describe center-Left members of their own party. On last night’s episode of MSNBC’s The Ed Show, Ed Schultz interviewed Katrina vanden Heuvel about President Obama’s “sellout” on the health care bill. Katrina complained Obama’s is “a White House which has emboldened the [...]

PBS Ignores Climategate, Laments Lack of World Dictator to Enforce Climate Justice


The December 14 broadcast of PBS’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook is titled “Showdown in Copenhagen,” which would lead one to believe that opposing parties there are facing off against one another over the role humans have in affecting the global climate.
Nothing could be further from the truth. 
In order to fully appreciate this particular broadcast, the listener [...]

The Dastardly Left Attacks Lieberman’s Wife


As reported last night on “The O’Reilly Factor”, some Leftists are  so angry at Senator Joe Lieberman for blocking the public health insurance option that they are taking it out on his wife,  Hadassah Lieberman.  They are trying to get her fired from her position as “Global Ambassador” for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the [...]

A Spoonful of Saccharine: The Filibuster is Now A Tool for Evil (Nevermind The Last Eight Years)


Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
It has always been a source of amusement to us that many leftists love to quote Orwell and use “Orwellian” as one of their favorite anti-conservative insults. Yet day by day they perform activities that seem ripped straight from the pages of Orwell’s works. [...]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 14, 2009


Forty years ago, I wrote the first book about the New Left, which was also a kind of manifesto of our publicly proposed agendas for a more democratic and racially equal America. I say “publicly proposed” because as leftists we knew we could not announce what we really intended which was a socialist revolution in [...]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: December 12, 2009


After Betty’s murder, I ceased to be politically active. I couldn’t even think about politics apart from these events. In my heart, I knew that it would not be possible for me to work for a cause again until I had resolved the issues of her death. As New Leftists, we felt ourselves immunized from [...]
