Glenn Beck: Congressman Paul Ryan is Wrong about Progressivism


Our favorite talk show host Glenn Beck recently criticized Paul Ryan, for giving a speech in which he tried to rehabilitate progressives such as Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Beck’s criticism came after he read this post over at the popular conservative Hot Air blog, in which Ryan is praised for being a “real progressive.” Unlike Ryan, Beck [...]

The Godmother of the Feminist Hawk movement, the inimitable Dr. Phyllis Chesler, made her debut at NewsReal Blog this week. She wrote about the banning of the burqa and Islamic censorship.

I’m thrilled to report that [...]

Rape of Lady Liberty Cartoon – Choose Your Weapons Carefully


Amid all the high-fives and atta boy’s that have attended Jenn Q. Public’s recent post Rape of Lady Liberty I feel compelled to raise my hand, kind of like that annoying kid at the back of the class, and ask exactly what good we did ourselves here.
To be sure there are several things to agree [...]

Polls show that most polls are stupid


Media Matters has been crowing about a survey that’s been widely reported upon by the left:
A Harris poll released on March 24 found that a majority of Republican respondents believe that President Obama “is a socialist,” “wants to take away Americans’ right to own guns,” “is a Muslim,” “wants to turn over the sovereignty of [...]

Remember This the Next Time You Hear a Canadian Slam America’s “Barbarism”


One the key tricks writers use is to type the words that are in their heads, or sometimes coming out of their mouths. This makes today’s post for me exceptionally difficult, because if I printed the litany of four-letter words that just came out of my mouth after reading Jamie Glazov’s article, I’d be fired.
I [...]

Did David Frum Really Get Forced Out of AEI for His “Heretical” Views? And Is That Really What We Should Be Worried About as the Left Prepares its Next Assault?


I was disturbed yesterday when seeing the news that David Frum had resigned or potentially been “forced out” of his position at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI.) Frum and NewsReal Blog have had their disagreements in the past but I genuinely like and respect the guy.
Frum’s not an enemy who should be slammed like a [...]

Michael Steele is Indeed a Man of Steel


Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele courageously refuses to play in the left-wing sandbox. And, because of that, lefties like the Washington Post’s Colbert King denounce Steele as a sellout to black people. But Steele is absolutely right and Colbert is dead wrong.

Roger Ailes Warns Fox News Staffers Not To Attack Glenn Beck


Fox News founder Roger Ailes has had enough of the vitriol aimed at popular talk show host Glenn Beck. And no, I’m not talking about the trash coming from the Left but from Fox staffers. Yeah, seriously:
A column in the Washington Post on Monday revealed that some Fox staffers are concerned the celebrity pundit is [...]

Fighting Irish In the Trenches: Kathy Shaidle’s St. Patrick’s Day Toast to the Irish – Slantie! All Your Ancestors Were Ignorant Drunks!


In an uncharacteristically acidic post, NRB Kathy Shaidle turns her normally elegant and erudite pen to a gratuitous, baffling attack on the Irish. In response to NRB Blogger Michelle Horstman’s post celebrating the rise of Irish Immigrants from abject poverty and prejudice to complete integration and participation in American society, Kathy felt it was a [...]

The Moderate Islam That Never Was


I have been cringing observing the debate between several NewsReal bloggers and John R. Guardiano about the existence — or lack thereof — of a “moderate Islam.” Once again, no matter what evidence and arguments are presented to the “there is a moderate Islam” proponent, it’s all useless, as they just go back to the [...]
