  • Gabby Giffords’ Anti-Gun Group Caught Accepting Illegal Contributions

    Freedom Outpost ^ | 8/20/13 | Dean Garrison
    Another anti-gun group gets caught with the proverbial hand in the cookie jar. This time Gabby Giffords has her prints all over it. The total amount of illegal contributions received was $15,250. That is not a small chunk of change. Giffords’ PAC, Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, received three illegal donations it has been discovered. This is not coincidence or a mistake. One could be a mistake and two could be coincidence. Three times is conspiracy to defraud. Publicintegrity.org reports: Singer, actress and comedian Bette Midler took to Twitter on April 18 to promote Gabby Giffords’ new gun control effort....
  • Bette Midler: 'In America It’s Easier to Take a Life Than to Get Health Insurance'

    Actress and singer Bette Midler is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most addle-minded personalities. On Twitter Wednesday, she actually wrote, "Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance?" Let's look at the facts, shall we? In 2011, there were about 14,000 homicides in our nation. That year, 48.6 million Americans were uninsured. That means about 261 million people in our country had health insurance that year, or 18,643 times the number of homicides. Midler might be a Divine singer, but her intellectual capacity is anything but.
  • Why Britons should celebrate the American Declaration of Independence

    Daniel Hannan Blog/UK Telegraph ^ | 7-4-13 | Daniel Hannan
    We all know the story of American independence, don't we? A rugged frontier people became increasingly tired of being ruled by a distant elite. A group calling themselves Patriots were especially unhappy about being taxed by a parliament in which they were unrepresented. When, in 1775, British redcoats tried to repress them, a famous Patriot called Paul Revere rode through the night across eastern Massachusetts, crying 'The British are coming'. The shots that were fired the next day began a war for independence which culminated the following year in the statehouse of Philadelphia, when George Washington and others, meeting under...

    Bette Midler is taking a different approach. The Parental Guidance star imagines a world in which the U.S. lost the war for its independence, but it's not like that's a bad thing. After all, she argues, that would mean we'd finally have socialized medicine.

    <p>Republicans spend too much time complaining about liberals boycotting the advertisers on conservatives’ shows and not enough time doing the same thing to the Left. If movie stars trash conservatives, we should be very publicly telling people we're not going to their films and we should take credit if they bomb. If a corporate CEO embraces liberalism, don't buy that company’s products and tell the world why you're doing it. Let him explain to his board of directors why standing up for gay marriage or abortion was worth losing millions of dollars. Seventy percent of the country is Christian, roughly half the country supports the Republican Party and forty percent of Americans are conservative. There are a lot of businesses, artists and musicians who simply cannot survive without the support of people like us. The only reason they dare to trash us or publicly support people who hate our guts is because we all too often shrug our shoulders and then willingly hand over our money to people who despise us.</p>

    The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names.An inspector general’s report scheduled to be released later this week reportedly says the IRS also targeted groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution.And if that weren’t bad enough, the IRS reportedly released conservative groups’ confidential information to the “independent” (that is, liberal) news organization ProPublica.But Bette Midler sees no reason for concern. No reason at all.She took to Twitter last night to announce (in all caps) that she thinks what the IRS did is just great, because in her view political organizations are...

    It was definitely a scary 48 hours for the inhabitants of New York. But now that Hurricane Sandy has moved away from the East Coast, it's back to business for most New Yorkers, including Bette Midler. The veteran actress and singer continued her life as usual and celebrated her yearly extravagant celebrity 'Hulaween' bash on Wednesday night in the storm-struck city. Despite the fact that Lower Manhattan is still without power, Bette managed to find a venue uptown which did have electricity: The Waldorf Astoria hotel.

    Political Outcast ^ | September 15, 2012 | Chris Graham
    On September 13, actress Bette Midler wrote on her Twitter page, “Who are the idiots who made the video and put it on YouTube? When do we meet them? They should be charged with murder.” The video she is referring to is, as I’m sure you know, the ultra-low-budget anti-Islam film that the media and the White House are saying “caused” the rioting in Cairo, Libya, and other Muslim-dominated cities.. Here’s the way liberal logic works: Somebody offended some Muslim; those Muslims killed some innocent people; the anti-Muslim film and those who made it are accomplices in the murder of...

    Bette Midler has added her voice to those choosing to point the finger of blame for the Sept. 11th death of four Americans anywhere but Libya, and certainly not the White House. Forget freedom of speech, forget due process — someone has to pay. Cher wants something to happen to Pastor Terry Jones, even though it’s not his film which supposedly incited the violence.

    In some ways Yoko Ono is still an amateur. At “We Are Plastic Ono Band,” mixing concert and tribute at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Tuesday night, her voice could be shaky and her stage patter giggly and unplanned. She looked genuinely surprised when the audience interrupted her and sang “Happy Birthday.” (She turns 77 on Feb. 18.) She’s also untamed. She can still let loose the bleats, wails, yips, howls and shrieks that alienated Beatles fans in the 1960s and inspired avant-rockers soon afterward. Ms. Ono’s well-preserved air of naïveté — and the license it gives her to...

    Here is video of Bette Midler talking with Joy Behar today where she said she does not think Glenn Beck is "even a little bit funny." In fact, Midler said Beck is "terrifying" to her, and that she believes he could spark a civil war in America like what happened in Rwanda that killed hundreds of thousands of people. Even Joy Behar seemed taken aback by what Midler said. Behard defended Becks right to "hate speech," saying it is protected by the First Amendment. NOTE: Glenn Beck does not engage in hate speech, and he is not trying to foment...

    It's just what the primetime cable news lineup needed - another hour-long program tilted toward left-of-center politics with character assassination on conservatives. CNN Headline News debuted its "The Joy Behar Show" on Sept. 29, which included appearances by lefty comedian Jeanane Garofalo, CNN's Jack Cafferty and actress Bette Midler. Garofalo doubled down on her low regard for conservative 9/12 and tea party protesters, labeling them as racists. Cafferty went after President Barack Obama for his disregard of the carbon footprint his lobbying efforts in Copenhagen for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. However, actress-turned-Vegas entertainer Bette Midler went straight...

    Ann Coulter vs. Joy Behar on 'Larry King Live': TKO Coulter? Feb 20, 2009, 11:14 AM | by Ken TuckerCategories: Television Ann Coulter appeared on a Joy Behar-hosted edition of Larry King Live last night, and CNN kept superimposing the caption, "Ann Coulter Unleashed!" Boy, was the network, and Behar, just aching for Coulter to scorch up the airwaves. This is why Coulter gets invited on TV shows when she has a book to flog: she can be relied upon to say outrageous things, egged on by her hosts. But last night, Behar was trying too hard. Quoting the conservative...

    Sex columnist Dan Savage’s crude definition of U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum’s last name ranks on top in a Google search of the senator’s last name, but it’s just rank to Bob Casey Jr. The Democratic state treasurer said Monday he’s returning Mr. Savage’s $2,100 contribution because the sex columnist’s definition detracts from the way campaigns should be conducted. “It was the right thing to do,” Mr. Casey said after an appearance in Scranton. “Look, a contribution of that size in the context of millions of dollars that both campaigns will raise is obviously not a big percentage of what you’ll...

I met him in the 1970s through his coke dealer," she said. The crowd booed the not-so-divine Ms. M for the quip.
