The Left Doesn’t Get Palin’s ‘No Apologies’ Tour in Israel


While the official faces of Left-Wing America are walking the tight-rope over to the dark side of the anti-Israel movement, Sarah Palin is making the Star of David a fashion statement for which she refuses to apologize. Last week, Glenn Beck outlined the litany of anti-Israel comments and actions taken by President Obama and his Administration over the [...]

Pants on Fire: Chris Matthews’s New Problem with “Anti-Americanism”


“I decline utterly to be impartial as between the fire brigade and the fire.”
–Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 1927
For the past 6 years, Chris Matthews has hosted a show in which guests gleefully reported the purported success of both indigenous insurgents and foreign al Qaeda fighters in Iraq.  On his network, MSNBC, that became the [...]

Obama Is Destroying The Dollar


The budget disaster awaiting the United States if the trillion dollar-plus Obamacare plan is passed was discussed on The O’Reilly Factor last night.  Numbers from the Congressional Budget Office on the latest legislative iterations are expected this week.
I think that the most important part of The O’Reilly Factor discussion focused on the sliding dollar, which will worsen considerably [...]

What The Left Really Pledges Allegiance To


As the Olympics head to Rio, unemployment edges toward ten percent, and Tehran barrels toward a nuclear weapon, the Left continues its “Question the Patriotism of Conservatives” tour ‘09. In one of the more unlikely scenarios of recent television history, MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” compared President Obama’s perpetual criticism of his country favorably against Rush [...]

Beck’s “Musings” Were a Joke, but Media Matters Didn’t Get It


The Media Matters irony detector must’ve been in the shop on September 16, when they roused themselves to mock Glenn Beck… for making a joke.
Here’s what they wrote:
Beck: [politically outspoken UK band] Muse is “brilliant,” buy their new album;
Muse: Please retract your endorsement

Then Media Matters helpfully posts five minutes of audio from Beck’s radio show. [...]

What China Demands, Obama Provides


Last April, after the Dalai Lama–the spiritual leader of Tibet–announced his intention to travel to the United States in October, the Communist Chinese gave President Barack Obama a stern warning against meeting with him.

The Feckless Hypocrite Returns Home Empty-Handed


 
President Obama made a fool of himself and of America by his fly-by visit to Copenhagen to plead Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Olympics.   Chicago, Obama’s home town and power base, was knocked out in the first round of voting.   Rio emerged triumphant.
Obama was still out of the country when it was announced that the unemployment rate reached [...]

Obama’s Loss is America’s Gain


Despite the best efforts of President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey to bolster Chicago’s bid to host the Olympic Games in 2016, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) awarded the “honor” to the City of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
The White House lobbied hard and had made the argument that hosting the [...]

The Stopped Clock– Correct Twice in One Day: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 7


Returning from extended leave, Wednesday, Keith Olbermann was delivered a Welcome Home gift from the conservative web site Newsmax—a column which all but called for a military coup against Barack Obama.
OLBERMANN: On the heels of a survey posted on Facebook asking should Obama be killed, one right wing columnist has floated the idea of [...]

Media Matters defends Kevin Jennings with “scare quote-fu”


On the left, using so-called scare quotes has become a favored polemical trick. You know what I mean: they put quotation marks around words or phrases, either to denote sarcasm and cynicism, or to engender doubt about a concept’s value and accuracy.
Scare quotes are a kind of hipster secret handshake — a shorthand way of [...]
