  • NRA Issues Call for White Supremacy and Armed Insurrection

    Moyers & Company ^ | June 29, 2017 | Bill Moyers and Michael Winship
    Take a look at the ad below and ask whether the National Rifle Association can go any lower. Ponder this flagrant call for violence, this insidious advocacy of hate delivered with a sneer, this threat of civil war, this despicable use of propaganda to arouse rebellion against the rule of law and the ideals of democracy. On the surface this is a recruitment video for the National Rifle Association. But what you are really about to see is a call for white supremacy and armed insurrection, each word and image deliberately chosen to stir the feral instincts of troubled souls...

    Here's what we'd like to hear her say before Donald Trump takes office — a call for a shadow government that will watchdog everything he and Congress do.

    Just 712 Democratic officials will decide whether Clinton or Sanders wins the nomination. Documents show that's what the party planned all along. This post originally appeared at In These Times. Since its launch, a specter has haunted Bernie Sanders’ run for the Democratic nomination. It’s not his age, though at 74 he would be the oldest president in American history. And it’s not that he’s an avowed socialist, the label that a mere eight years ago was used to smear Barack Obama as a sinister, alien threat to the American way of life. Rather, it has been the so-called superdelegates...

    Bill Ayers. Remember him?: Unrepentant terrorist, SDS riotmaker, pal and political mentor of young Barack Obama, and putative author/ghostwriter of Obama's famous 1995 memoir, Dreams of My Father. In 2011, Ayers (shown) publicly claimed authorship of Dreams (see video of Ayers here) after Dr. Jack Cashill's forensic literary analysis - in a 2008 article and his more extensive book-length analysis in 2011, Deconstructing Obama had convincingly made the case that Ayers, a talented wordsmith, had written the book for the unskilled Obama to help launch the up-and-coming young comrade's political career. During Obama's 2008 run for the White House, his...
  • LBJ’s 1964 attack ad ‘Daisy’ leaves a legacy for modern campaigns

    Washington Post ^ | September 5 | Drew Babb
    Fifty years ago, on Sept. 7, 1964, a political ad called “Daisy” aired on behalf of President Lyndon Johnson. The commercial opened with a little girl in a meadow, then a horrific nuclear blast filled the screen. We’ve been feeling the fallout ever since. It was only a minute long. The paid ad ran on national television only once, and only on one network, NBC. But that’s all it took.

    Left-wing extremism has a home at PBS – and that home, to be specific, is the set of Moyers & Company. Host Bill Moyers kicked off Sunday’s episode with a flashback to the previous week’s broadcast, in which scientist and environmental activist David Suzuki had announced that he believes society should literally punish politicians who don’t believe in global warming. [Video below. MP3 audio here.] This is what Suzuki told Moyers:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness. If we are in a position of being able to act, and we see something going on and...

    A growing body of research suggests that we are a nation divided not only by partisanship or how we view various issues, but also by dramatically different cognitive styles. Sociologists and psychologists are getting a better understanding about the ways that deep seated emotional responses effect our ideological viewpoints. Last week, Moyers & Company caught up with Mother Jones science writer Chris Mooney, host of the Inquiring Minds podcast and author of The Republican Brain: the Science of Why They Deny Science – and Reality, to talk about what this research may tell us about the attitudes of those involved...

  • On PBS, Bill Moyers Trashes America and the NRA As 'Venomous...Enablers of Death'

    With the first heart-breaking headlines out of Colorado, gun-rights advocates just had to know that leftist lecturers in our media would mount their soap boxes and trash this country for its gun culture and trash the National Rifle Association as an "enabler of death -- paranoid, delusional, and as venomous as a scorpion." But it's additionally sad that the soap box in this case is paid for by taxpayers -- in the form of taxpayer support for every PBS station that spews out this leftist loathing. On his show Moyers & Company, 78-year-old PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers reached back to...

    A Whig Manifesto ^ | May 1, 2012 | Chuck Morse
    Rep. Allen West (R-FL) overstated the case when he recently declared “I believe there is about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He clarified his assertion by stating that he was actually referring to members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus which, he contended, were Marxist in their orientation. At least on that point he was absolutely right. The Congressional Progressive Caucus which, as Rep. Allen West claimed, includes about 78 members of Congress, maintains a direct affiliation with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) which is the American branch of Socialist...

    Big Journalism ^ | 10/16/11 | Dana Loesch
    Big Journalism has learned that the Occupy Washington DC movement is working with well-known media members to craft its demands and messaging while these media members report on the movement. Someone has made the emails from the Occupy D.C. email distro public and searchable. The names in the list are a veritable who’s who in media. Journolist 2.0 includes well known names such as MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan, Rolling Stone’s Matt Tiabbi who both are actively participating; involvement from other listers such as Bill Moyers and Glenn Greenwald plus well-known radicals like Noam Chomsky, remains unclear.

    Former PBS omnipresence Bill Moyers is at it again, agitating against Republicans for daring to oppose National Public Radio subsidies. In the latest installment (with Michael Winship) on The Huffington Post, Moyers concluded with a quote illustrating "the importance of a public media whose obligation is not to a political or corporate paymaster, but to the integrity of the work and the trust of the listener." NPR, he claimed, was like Kennedy's tribute to the poet Robert Frost: "The artist, however faithful to his personal vision of reality, becomes the last champion of the individual mind and sensibility against an...

    Come on now: Let’s take a breath and put this NPR fracas into perspective. Just as public radio struggles against yet another assault from its long-time nemesis -- the right-wing machine that would thrill if our sole sources of information were Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and ads paid for by the Koch Brothers -- it walks into a trap perpetrated by one of the sleaziest operatives ever to climb out of a sewer.

    Who needs to make health care Barack Obama's Waterloo, as Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. suggested? Why not make it the president's Alamo? That's the advice PBS host Bill Moyers had for President Barack Obama in an appearance on HBO's August 28 "Real Time with Bill Maher." According to the former press secretary for President Lyndon B. Johnson, a defeat on health care/health insurance reform would do the left more good than crafting some sort of compromise. ..more (w/video)..

    For Friday's episode of "Real Time," host Bill Maher eschewed his usual format of opening monologue, short interview, and panel discussion in exchange for the "special episode" style of long interviews with figures he admires. I'll save my commentary on the first half hour's interview with rap superstar Jay-Z for tomorrow. Today it's NewsReal Sunday and some of the comments from Maher's second guest, Baptist minister, Great Society architect, and "progressive" PBS journalist Bill Moyers need to be answered. Moyers chose to phrase the health care issue in "moral" terms. Not quite the explicitly religious argument (refuted by NewsReal here,...

    The tolerance channel has banned God. No, that’s not true. All they want him to do is “migrate.” They want God to “migrate” from TV to the Internet. I’m talking about PBS, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, whatever alphabet-soup taxpayer-supported agency it is that has made untold millions from “Sesame Street.” In its enlightened wisdom, it has outlawed God. More specifically, it has forbidden “sectarian” programming. If you are going to be a PBS station, you can’t have any religious broadcasting. I think they really mean Christian religious broadcasting, but they can’t say something like that out loud. At least...
