As Steele Marginalizes Reid, Conservatives Must Marginalize the Left


Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele gave the only appropriate response on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, to Senate Majority Leader and member of the anti-war Left Harry Reid comparing critics of health care reform to opponents of abolition: he refused to answer questions about it and told CNBC commentator Donny Deutsch to change the subject.
It was a good reaction, [...]

Thanksgiving With Bill Ayers: Fugitive Days and Obama’s Plan for Afghanistan


 

Books are the mind’s feast even when they are controversial. While Americans gathered to thank God for our beloved country, I spent much of Thanksgiving seeing America through the eyes of a man who detests her. William Ayers, author of Fugitive Days, is a professor at the University of Chicago. His resume [...]

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 [...]

Anatomy of a Straw Man: Liberal Doublespeak on Afghanistan


Turn on any cable news channel discussion of Afghanistan right now and you will hear three words from the liberal spokesman, whether it’s a politician, Democratic party strategist or consultant, or pundit.
“Afghanistan isn’t Iraq.”

An Anti-Anti-Holocaust Denier Lauds An Intellectual Fraud


Last night’s MSNBC lineup provided a trifecta of reasons why people dismiss that network’s “news analysis”: the intellect of the show’s host, the insight of his guest, and the reputation of a “scholar” whom the guest referenced. In this case, Ed Schultz interviewed a man who encouraged us to think the best of a Holocaust [...]

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 [...]

Netanyahu to UN: “Have You No Shame?”


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu minced no words yesterday when he told the UN General Assembly that it must stop accommodating “the forces of terror.” And he properly scolded those who had remained in the room to hear the Holocaust-denying Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “anti-Semitic rants” the day before.   To make his point and demonstrate what a lying fool [...]

Retreat in Afghanistan


President Obama told the UN General Assembly this morning that “we will permit no safe-haven for al Qaeda to launch attacks from Afghanistan or any other nation.” 
Nice words.  Yet his actions — or, more precisely, his inaction — are beginning to undercut his rhetoric.   President Obama appears to be retreating from Afghanistan. As Bill O’Reilly [...]

Obama’s Applause Lines Tell Us Everything


David Horowitz commented on The One’s sellout speech to the UN this morning. Sometimes one stray fact is enough to tell a whole story: The biggest applause lines by far were his declaration that “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements,” and his pledge to end the Israeli “occupation that began in [...]
