Was Sarah Palin Snookered Into Endorsing a Stealth Anti-Israel Candidate?


Rand Paul let the truth of his positions slip to the execrable Truther nutjob Alex Jones.
Previously today NewsReal ran a Point/Counterpoint between Janet Levy and myself regarding Governor Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Rand Paul for Senate.
Janet expressed strong concerns regarding Paul’s foreign policy views and argued that “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” [...]

Obama, iPad, Jesus: Who is this King of the News?


The anticipation was palpable…what would he say? What would it do? Is this what we’ve been waiting for?  Experts surmised, pundits pontificated while the population pondered:  whither change?
He spoke…
For some, there was immediate disillusionment.  Others, compelled by loyalty to the “brand,” made excuses for lackluster delivery.  Who could blame them?  When hopes set [...]

George Will and the Left’s Hypocrisy over Citizens United


With the SOTU already well-covered here at NewsReal, we will take a narrower focus. George Will’s column in today’s Washington Post must have been written before the President’s speech, but it delivers a stinging rebuke to one of Obama’s talking points, as well as the leftist media’s phony outrage over the recent Citizens United v.

Midnight Snack – Top 10 Films of 2009
