  • President Obama Changing The Rules On Illegal Immigration (O'Reilly's "Humane" comment bites back?

    Bill O'Reilly (The O'Reilly Factor) ^ | 6/15/2012 | Bill O'Reilly
    In a very political move, the president has announced new rules for a specific group of illegal aliens. If your parents brought you to America when you were under 16, if you have completed high school, or served in the military, and if you are under the age of 30 now, then you are most likely going to stay in America. ... As for the policy, how can you blame kids when they are dragged to the US? It's not the child's fault that laws were broken. Thus the new policy is humane, and the President believes it will make...

    On his Fox News show Thursday night, host Bill O'Reilly cited the Media Research Center study on the network evening newscasts censoring coverage of the 2014 midterms: "Eight years ago, the nightly network newscasts went full out to cover the campaigns, which Democrats were favored to win....But this time around, the graph is far different. At this point in time, ABC News did 36 election reports eight years ago. So far this year, zero, nothing. CBS, 58 in year 2006. 14 this year. NBC, 65 eight years ago. 11 this year. Simply stunning."

    I just watched Bill O'Reilly and I am reminded again why I don't watch the bloviating bastard. What an arrogant take on the two terrorist attacks in Canada this past week. He is so insulated in NYC that he has no perspective on America or our neighbors. I doubt if he has traveled to Canada recently, if ever. The story that isn't being told is what we have in common with our neighbors. 1.) Our cities are crawling with Muslims. 2.) There is no opposition to Islam in our two countries due to political correctness. 3.) Islamists, not just Islamic...

    Bill O'Reilly had a little fun at Karl Rove's expense on Monday night. While appearing on "The O'Reilly Factor" from Las Vegas, Rove whipped out his whiteboard to drive home some points about the upcoming midterm election. When the political strategist finished, O'Reilly warned him not to bring the whiteboard into the casinos. "I don't gamble," Rove said. "With your prediction record, that's a wise move," O'Reilly cracked. "Y'know that was personal and petty," Rove said. "That was personal and petty." "That's me," said O'Reilly. "P and P."

    Bill O’Reilly spent a significant part of his first segment tonight decrying the “racism” accusations being thrown by some MSNBC commentators amidst nationwide Ebola panic. O’Reilly did not directly call out MSNBC in his Talking Points Memo, but it was very clearly aimed at them, since he had teased the segment with a clip of Alex Wagner saying some Republican comments on Ebola, including calling for a travel ban is “not even thinly-veiled racism.” And that wasn’t the first time someone on MSNBC had invoked racism in talking about a travel ban; a guest on Melissa Harris-Perry‘s show did so...

    Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly came down hard on Hollywood’s Ben Affleck for comments he made in defense of Islam on a recent television appearance, saying the actor is living in denial. Mr. O'Reilly made the remarks while discussing the recent trade of barbs between Mr. Affleck and HBO host Bill Maher, when the former called the latter “racist” and “gross” for saying that liberals are closing their eyes to the dangers of radical Islam. Mr. O'Reilly then reminded how children in the Middle East were cheering in the streets in the days that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist...

    Weeks of U.S. Strikes Fail to Dislodge ISIS in Iraq By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK and OMAR AL-JAWOSHY SEPT. 22, 2014 BAGHDAD — After six weeks of American airstrikes, the Iraqi government’s forces have scarcely budged the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State from their hold on more than a quarter of the country, in part because many critical Sunni tribes remain on the sidelines. Although the airstrikes appear to have stopped the extremists’ march toward Baghdad, the Islamic State is still dealing humiliating blows to the Iraqi Army. On Monday, the government acknowledged that it had lost control of the...

    Fox News host Bill O'Reilly wants a mercenary army to supply the ground forces in the latest installment of the war on terror. And it seems the smart set can't stop laughing. The Washington Post's media blogger, Erik Wemple, called it an "insane" idea and suggested that allowing O'Reilly to peddle the idea on "CBS This Morning" was an "insane departure from that show's standard." The whole spectacle, Wemple opined, proved that O'Reilly will "never be much of a thought leader in policy circles." It's true that on the left and the right, O'Reilly's idea is being scorned fairly mercilessly....

    On his Fox News show Monday night, Bill O'Reilly suggested using mercenaries to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) instead of U.S. ground forces, which President Obama has repeatedly vowed not to deploy. The use of mercenaries is as old as warfare itself. Alexander the Great used them. King George III hired German mercenaries to fight for the British in the American Revolution. Today mercenaries go by other names, like “contractor." The president is to be commended for assembling a coalition that includes Arab states, but why are our European allies not part of it? Britain hasn't sent planes, though British...

Why, that’s … exactly what Obama’s planning to do with Syria’s “moderates.” Right? One of O’Reilly’s guests last night called his mercenary plan “morally corrosive” because it would outsource the national security of the United States to foreign actors, which … we’re right now in the process of doing.

    Who doesn’t love Bill O’Reilly? He’s witty, charming, sarcastic, and has just a little bit of that pompousness that makes the guy borderline adorable, in a non-homo kind of way. He also tells-it-like-it-is, and he’s pretty darn good at it. Unfortunately, these characteristics are not fully appreciated by State Department spokesperson Marie Barf Harf, who has been taking every opportunity she can to throw the conservative powerhouse under the bus for criticizing one of her female colleagues, a move she labeled “sexist.” Of course, it’s pretty dang hard to take any claim of “sexism” or “racism” serious from a liberal,...

"The Republican Party should really wise up and stop opposing raising the minimum wage. It should be 10 bucks an hour" to keep employers from exploiting workers, O'Reilly said Wednesday during his opening "Talking Points Memo" segment of his TV show. O'Reilly said his proposed $10 an hour minimum wage would apply only to adults. Teenagers just beginning their careers should be paid on a lower scale, he said.

Harf, who makes Psaki look intellectually hefty, should think again. O’Reilly has used similar words to disparage...

According to a White House memo obtained by Judicial Watch, Ben Rhodes sent an email to prep Rice about the attack, listing the following two goals:

That rancher Cliven Bundy broke the law for many years by not paying the fees, that the federal government owns the land and that the State of Nevada readily admits the feds have jurisdiction in the grazing controversy. Those are the facts. So, we presented them to you and then mildly criticized the feds for overreacting. You may remember, Judge Napolitano and I basically said...

Still, it’s probably fair to say that when most people think of Nevada renegade rancher Cliven Bundy, the Zuccotti Park protesters of Occupy Wall Street don’t immediately — or eventually — come to mind.

    Much has been reported recently concerning Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly and his pre-Super Bowl interview of President Barack Obama. Many of the Obama cheering section are stating that this action showed Obama’s courage in the sense that he was willing to consent to an interview with a supposedly hostile reporter from an anti-administration television network. Conservative viewers, on the other hand, saw this as an exercise in frustration since the President answered no questions, and spent his time lobbing thinly disguised barbs at the interviewer, and the interviewer’s employer. So, few minds were really changed by this supposedly “courageous”...

    “My first thought was, he lied in every word.” So began Browning’s famous poem and so began Bill O’Reilly’s interview of Obama. Obama’s game plan was to exploit Bill O’Reilly’s image by rebranding himself as a post-partisan politician with common sense solutions. Repeating his dishonest refrain, “That’s not a liberal or a conservative agenda” or “It’s not a Democratic or Republican thing” he tried to reinvent himself as a politician for all people to the FOX News audience. Some of the policies that Obama kept insisting were neither liberal nor conservative, neither Democrat nor Republican, included raising the minimum wage,...

    The interests of full disclosure require me to acknowledge that I have never liked Bill O’Reilly (BOR). This said, I will nevertheless comment, not on his interview of Barack Obama Sunday night, but rather on a critique of his work offered by a Marc Ambinder who was sent careening off the walls by BOR’s “ridiculous” interview of Obama. Fair enough, let’s take a look at what Ambinder had to say. After the obligatory liberal attack on Fox News and a completely incongruent, but equally obligatory swipe at Sean Hannity, Ambinder attempted to establish that he was disappointed because BOR’s questions...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)A MSNBC political panel was less than enthused by Bill O’Reilly’s tough interview with President Barack Obama on Sunday, claiming the questions were irrelevant and that O’Reilly himself “lives on another planet.” The cable network’s Craig Melvin spoke with Republican strategist Susan del Percio and MSNBC contributors Zerlina Maxwell and Josh Barro about the testy interview, which seemed at times to frustrate the president. MELVIN: Susan, what did we learn that was new yesterday evening? DEL PERCIO: Nothing! I actually think they had a no-news pact going on in that interview. MELVIN: It seemed at times like a wasted opportunity!...

    It’s clear that Roger Ailes and Fox News had big plans for their Super Bowl interview with President Obama. They were going to use the biggest stage of the year to prove that the president is a failure. Instead, it was Obama who humiliated Fox News. Video of the interview: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)It was obvious from the first question that Fox News had a clear agenda for this interview with Obama. The interview got off to a horrible start when O’Reilly tried to zing Obama with the long since fixed ACA website. This exchange set the tone: OBAMA: — as I said,...

    Last night before the Superbowl, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly interviewed President Obama and didn't shy away from tough topics like Benghazi or the IRS scandal. In typically fashion shortly after the interview started, President Obama got irritated and accused O'Reilly and Fox News of telling people things that aren't true. Obama reassured O'Reilly that the IRS targeting of conservatives had nothing to do with politics and said former IRS Chief Douglas Shulman visited the White House more than 100 times to help with the Obamacare rollout. Obama said there was zero corruption involved in the IRS case. "I mean these...

    O'REILLY: All right. Was it the biggest mistake of your presidency to tell the nation over and over, if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance? OBAMA: But this is -- this is one that I regret and I've said I regretted, in part because we put in a grandfather clause in the original law saying that, in fact, you were supposed to be able to keep it. It obviously didn't cover everybody that we needed to and that's why we changed it, so that we further grandfathered in folks and many people who thought originally, when they...

    I suppose nothing less could be expected from an interview of President Obama by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. After all, how Obama feels about Fox News is not a secret. He blames the network for publishing stories that dare question his integrity, his honesty, his entire presidency. The video below is only a 10-minute segment of the interview, but it's plain to see the tension. The two men put on a good front, but President Obama clearly had no intention of giving straight answers to the questions Bill O'Reilly asked. From ObamaCare to Benghazi to the IRS, Obama basically accused...
  • Bill O’Reilly: GOP Should ‘Wise Up’ and Raise Minimum Wage

    Fox News host Bill O’Reilly says the “pinheads” in the Republican Party should stop opposing the minimum wage. “The Republican Party should really wise up and stop opposing raising the minimum wage. It should be 10 bucks an hour” to keep employers from exploiting workers, O'Reilly said Wednesday during his opening “Talking Points Memo” segment of his TV show. O’Reilly said his proposed $10 an hour minimum wage would apply only to adults. Teenagers just beginning their careers should be paid on a lower scale, he said. “The GOP needs to stop working against working people,” O”Reilly said. …
  • Would it be any different if Rodman had went to Iraq & shook hands with Saddam in 1983 under Reagan?

    Why does the MSM not ignore Rodman instead? Why do they call him irrelevant, and then continually act as if he is relevant? Dennis Rodman is indeed a buffoon, but has this nation been involved in overthrows - as in the overthrow of elected Iranian leaders (1953) - only later to regret it? What about Pinochet, and our supposed support of a coup, which we supposedly criticized in public but were involved with in secret? Were we involved? Did we later regret it? Would Dennis Rodman be a buffoon to Bill O'Reilly (which O'Reilly called him last night) had it...

    In a recent “Talking Points” broadcast on Phil Robertson, Bill O’Reilly made a number of assertions about Christian theology, which came as a complete surprise to me, a practicing Christian and a teacher of adult Bible studies. O’Reilly cited as his authority the fact that he had written a book about Jesus. Curious, I reviewed the Kindle edition of “Killing Jesus” by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. Far from establishing O’Reilly’s credentials as an authority on Christianity, I found this popular book contains no fewer than 133 historical errors. The book also contains multiple internal contradictions. For example, with stimulating...
  • Bill O’Reilly: Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson ‘made a mistake’

    Bill O’Reilly: Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson ‘made a mistake’ Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times Fox News Channel’s Bill O'Reilly, host of “The O'Reilly Factor,” said Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame actually erred with some of his biblically-based comments about the sinfulness of homosexuality. Mr. O'Reilly, a self-proclaimed Christian, honed in on one specific part of Mr. Robertson’s much-publicized quotes in GQ magazine – the condemnation aspect. “Mr. Robertson, I believe, made a mistake by the condemnation line,” he said, Politico reported. “It’s not about the Bible, or believing or not believing in the Bible. It’s singling out a group,...

    Click on the YouTube link below to watch Bill O'Reilly's chat with Laura Ingraham on last night's The O'Reilly Factor (12/19/2013). Bill O'Reilly quotes Luke 6:37, which is displayed on the screen: "Judge not, and you will not be judged. Condemn not, and you will not be condemned." Listen to what he has to say. Do you agree with what he has to say about "Judge not lest ye be judged..."? Now compare what he has to say with what is at Catholic.com and Catholic.org on this subject. Go to those sites and the first thing you see today is...
