Blockade Iran?


How do we deal once and for all with Iran’s continuing nuclear threat?  The image above is already out of date regarding the Iranian enrichment facilities that we know about, as it does not include Qom.
Some pundits, including Bill O’Reilly, have advocated a naval blockade of Iranian ports to stop the import of finished petroleum [...]

Media Matters mocks heavily armed man who hunts his own food and may be insane


That’s right: Media Matters is now going after… Ted Nugent.
Today the Media Matters website proclaims: “Nugent jumps on Beck bandwagon: Obama and Carter the “real racists” who “have been destroying black America for decades”
Then, using their patent-pending “clever leftist rhetorical trick” technology, “senior fellows” at Media Matters today cut and paste excerpts from something the [...]

Obama’s List of Friends Thrown Under the Bus Grows


This past week Barack Obama, in unprecedented fashion, strongly suggested to David Paterson that he should not run for reelection as the Democrat candidate for Governor of New York. Obama’s people then leaked the story to the press.  The President wants Andrew Cuomo to be his party’s nominee, since Paterson seems sure to lose the general election.
Here is a [...]

Media Matters accepts “senior moment” excuse from ACORN’s Rathke


Here’s the “gotcha” Media Matters is highlighting on its web site today: “Latest fact-check fail: Fox News runs with claim that White House official worked for ACORN”:

Bias on FOX News


FOX media commentator Bernie Goldberg’s weekly appearance on the O’Reilly Factor turned into a shouting match about whether certain unnamed talking heads on FOX News were spinning their biased views as facts.   This was in response to O’Reilly’s question as to why FOX is under constant attack by the “mainstream” media.
After conceding that FOX’s conservative views [...]

The President Loses His Voice—Again


Last June, when the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards set upon pro-democracy demonstrators who were protesting the theft of that country’s presidential election by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a brutal crackdown, the world’s leaders were quick to express their condemnation.

Obama’s political affairs director tied to ACORN


 
Poor Barack Obama. During the President’s recent Sunday morning TV interview circuit, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was the only questioner ill-mannered enough to ask “The One” a substantive question about the recent House and Senate votes to cut off all federal funding to Obama’s former employer, scandal-plagued ACORN. In response, our ever-genial President politely told the pesky Stephanopoulos [...]

Adding Illegal Aliens to Obamacare


Would it be immoral to deny illegal aliens the right to purchase medical insurance under Obamacare?  According to a guest on the O’Reilly Factor last night, the answer is yes ( he referred to the lawbreakers by the more benign sounding title, ”undocumented” immigrants).  Some left wing Democrats in Congress are also saying that illegal aliens should be covered.
Emergency-room [...]

Welcome to 1995: Sean Hannity Discovers Law and Order is “Politicized”


Monday night, Sean Hannity undercut a great point with a facile overstatement and lack of precision that is all too typical of him.
In highlighting an outrageous Law and Order episode in which DA Jack McCoy prosecutes a Bush Administration lawyer for writing a memo that authorized the torture of prisoners in Iraq, Hannity made the [...]

NewsReal Sunday: Pots and Kettles: Maddow and Schaeffer Call Evangelicals “Village Idiots” Who Must be Excluded from American Political Life


If your Evangelical Church had a business meeting today, Frank Schaeffer, son of Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer and owner of the world’s biggest daddy complex has an expression for what went on there—The lunatics running the asylum.
Using the pretext of a dubious poll question about whether Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, Rachel Maddow used guest [...]
