Mark Steyn Declares Side in Glenn Beck Debate


From The Corner Mark Steyn links to Kathy Shaidle’s recent NewsReal post on Media Matters’ recent smear against Glenn Beck and notes:
Sad to say, many who should know better go along with it. Our old comrade David Frum wrote a piece called “Whose Side Is Glenn Beck On?” Well, in the space of a week [...]

Even Media Matters disgusted by Polanski apologists


That was snarky, I know. But given how hard it is to keep up with the latest “progressive” “goodthink” without my Left Wing Decoder Ring (I had to pawn it when my Z.O.G. check bounced…), I trust you’ll forgive me.
Media Matters‘ Jamison Foser manages to out-snark me anyway. With unconcealed contempt, Foser blasts two Washington [...]

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.

Marc Lamont Hill Becomes Bob Parks’ “Bonehead of the Day” at Black and Right


From the essential Bob Parks at Black and Right commenting on David Horowitz’s first post about Marc Lamont Hill:
I love my new television set. Watching Hill for more than 14 seconds makes me have violent thoughts that puts my flatscreen’s health in peril. For having Marc Lamont Hill on more than he deserves (token), Bill [...]

Will Naomi Wolf Fight Female Genital Mutilation?


Naomi Wolf, Lucy Semiyan Mashua

I have a little follow-up to my run-in with Naomi Wolf over the sexiness of the burqa.
As our readers will be familiar, Wolf went on a political pilgrimage to Morocco, Jordan, and Egypt and found a thriving sexuality behind the veil.
I have been wondering ever since if Wolf was at all [...]

The Democrats Dust Off an Old Myth


The last few weeks have not been kind to the aura of President Barack Obama.
Internationally, he has begun to be perceived as a weak leader. None of his campaign promises have led to any results on the international stage. The detention center at Guantanamo Bay is still open. The Middle East remains a mess. Oil [...]

ACORN Review Panel a Sham


Repeating opinions he’s expressed on his TV and radio shows, commentator Glenn Beck told the Washington Times that the supposedly independent review panel ACORN has established to recommend reforms to the group is a sham.
“I think this whole thing is bogus,” Beck told the newspaper’s morning radio show, “America’s Morning News.”
“They moved too fast, too quietly. The president [...]

From the Pen of David Horowitz: September 29, 2009


In life, McCarthy was part of the Right.  In death, he has been possessed by body snatchers on the Left.  The apprehensions aroused by charges of “McCarthyism” are based on the Left’s assertion that there is a powerful and destructive impulse lurking just under the surface of our political life: a native fascism easily ignited [...]

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 [...]

Candidates Corner: From WWE to GOP


Linda McMahon
Republican, U.S. Senator for Connecticut
Prepare yourself for an endless stream of repetitive, sophomoric wrestling metaphors and jokes – many including the phrases “off the top rope” and “into the ring,” some references to a Senate SmackDown, maybe even a few suggestions on how best to incorporate the metal folding chair into political maneuvering.
Former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda [...]
