    Liberty's Torch ^ | April 14, 2012 | Francis W. Porretto
    In the ongoing presidential campaign, we may expect a handful of broad themes to receive the overwhelmingly greater fraction of the Democrat propagandists' efforts: "Republican war on women" "The 1%" "Fairness" The "fairness" canard is, of course, aimed at cowing the GOP's Congressional caucus, its candidates, and the electorate into bowing to higher taxation. In this connection, the Democrats' dominant meme has been that "millionaires and billionaires" are somehow evading paying their "fair share" of federal taxes, and that this contributes to the immense Obamunist deficit. Let's see if I can make this as striking as it always was at...

    A picture's worth a thousand words but Federal Judge Brian Coogan won't let the jury see a photo which prosecutors say illustrates the underlying motivation behind a mob murder in the racketereering trial against reputed Colombo mobsters Thomas Gioeli and Dino Saracino. In 1997 the co-defendants allegedly carried out a hit against against NYPD cop Ralph Dols after the Colombo family felt disrespected that he married Kim Kennaugh, the ex-wife of then-acting boss Joel Cacace, and yet Judge Coogan is keeping a photo of Dols and Kennaugh together from the jury as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News:...

    After careful consideration, Beck and his team decided to move forward and examine "one of the most dangerous organizations in America." Since the fall-out could be great, however, Beck said the benefits must then outweigh the risks. "The benefits rely on you," he told the audience. He said that if the information conveyed in this special is not disseminated by viewers to their friends and family, the risk taken will have been in vain. In fact, so important to Beck is the following profile of Farrakhan, that portions of the special will be made available without subscription on both The...

    The Orlando Sentinel ^ | April 13, 2012 | Hal Boedeker
    Some notable moments in the recent Trayvon Martin coverage: Jose Baez, who successfully defended Casey Anthony, was analyzing the case against George Zimmerman on Friday morning for CNN. Baez was agreeing with Professor Alan Dershowitz that the prosecutors’ probable-cause affidavit is very thin. Neighborhood Watch volunteer Zimmerman has said he shot Trayvon in self-defense. On MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Dershowitz said of the affidavit: “It’s irresponsible and unethical, and not including the material that favors the defendant, unless it’s not true. But if it’s true, as we now have learned from other information, that the grass stains are in back of Zimmerman’s...

    Syndicated radio host and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity may be forced to testify about an off-the-record conversation he has told audiences he had with accused Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman. Even though journalists are protected by a shield law in the state of Florida, some have said that Hannity’s role as a media commentator may disqualify him those protections. Andrew D. Manko, an adjunct instructor of mass media law at Florida State University, told The Daily Caller that Hannity does indeed qualify for those protections, but may have to testify anyway, depending on what was said in the...

    Rosen V. Romney is an orchestrated DISTRACTION Bill O’Reilly & Charles Krauthammer were discussing the “Buffet Rule” which most everyone knows is the premise for Obama’s tax raising campaign on the wealthy. Republicans know that he is using this admittedly useless endeavor to foment class warfare. Krauthammer did a capable job explaining how 250 years worth of this additional tax would only amount to about one year of the current deficit spending. He explained that this is pure demagoguery (as we all know) and he added that “demagoguery works.” I will add that the reason why these trivial distractions work...

    The Mexican countryside is sunny, pleasant, full of stray dogs and in each corner of Russia, you'll find decaying houses containing a samovar. But today, a nation like Mexico or Russia probably wouldn't last two months in a full out military confrontation with tiny Sweden (9.5 inhabitants). But that isn't the real point here, although it is worth pointing out how pathetic nations like Mexico and Russia really are considering the fact they have an abundance of natural resources and border to two of the largest and most successful economies on Earth (USA and the EU).

    Second, rather than struggling to weaken the capitalist state to overthrow it, the strategy was to work “within the system” to seize control of the state apparatus in order to transform the society. Thus, the state is to be strengthened as a tool for transforming society rather than defeated. Such a tactic, called “entryism,” is by no means new. Historically, however, Communist forces ruined the effect by turning captured organizations into “front” organizations that too obviously followed the party line. They also lacked sufficient cadre to take over major institutions, and faced strong, conscious opposition. Now, however, the New New...

The latest data show that output fell 5.1% (y/y) in February, after 4.3% in January and 3.5% in December. Durable goods fell 14.8pc, the sixth successive monthly fall. Capital goods output fell 10.6pc, according to Raj Badiani from IHS Global Insight. This is politically untenable. Unemployment is already 23.6pc on the Eurostat measure.

    A new Ipsos/Reuters poll offers what looks to be an unfortunate preview of what lies ahead for the trial of George Zimmerman – particularly as it relates to how the population will potentially react. Perhaps it’s not surprising to see that the attitudes towards Trayvon Martin’s fatal shooting are heavily divided along racial lines, but it’s not any less disheartening. The poll finds that 91 percent of Blacks believe Trayvon was killed unjustly. Yet, only 35 percent of whites feel that way. The online poll also revealed that 59 percent of Hispanics believed Martin was wrongly shot by Zimmerman. On...

But for Europe and the US it often appears hopeless and extremely serious. But, perhaps the "geniuses" that reside at the Fed and the European Central Bank will find a way out. That hasn't happened yet, and we're extremely skeptical that it will happen now, which means, it's inflate or die. The problem with this approach is that it...

    If Zimmerman had been African American or Trayvon Martin was Hispanic or White, this would have never surfaced as a national story. On the other hand, if Zimmerman had made the news for doing something positive, such as saving a child from a burning building, he would have surely been labeled “Hispanic.” In this case “White” is used to stir the racial pot and create more tension. It is typical of a media that is biased, liberal and irresponsible.

    In 2001, drug manufacturer Pfizer Inc. was trying to get only the second tax abatement in the city of Ann Arbor’s history and the first since 1982. Frustrated by the City Council’s tepidness to award the incentives, then-Pfizer Senior Vice President David Canter said the council seemed “anti-business” and implied that the drug manufacturer would completely abandon Ann Arbor if a deal wasn’t forthcoming. The City Council eventually worked out an $84.2 million tax incentive deal over 20 years. However, just six years later, Pfizer announced it was closing its Ann Arbor facilities by 2008. Pfizer’s announcement left city officials...

    Through their actions, Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have become forever entwined in the history of race relations of America. Both had cell phones. One saw what he thought was suspicious activity, (someone walking on others property, between houses, late at night), and called the police. Because he was not in the street, but between houses, Zimmerman apparently continued to follow Martin. He did so against the advice of the 911 operator, supposedly to get an address. Allegedly, at this point, Zimmerman was attacked and beaten, leading to his shooting his attacker. Trayvon Martin the other man in this case...

    As the railroading of George Zimmerman makes clear, we are all equal, but black hoodlums are a lot more equal than half-Jewish “white” Hispanics. They may soon become more equal still: When a 911 caller reported gunfire in the Ferndale community last month, he didn’t imagine that his description of the shooter would renew claims of racial profiling against the North Charleston Police Department. The resident, who is black, told a dispatcher that the gunman had dreadlocks in his hair, but in an interview Wednesday with The Post and Courier, he said it could have been “twists, braids or dreads.”...

While these manufactured controversies captivate the journalists who sensationalize them and the politicians who try to take advantage of them, the women of America are once again being reduced to reproductive organs with voting rights and petty concerns.

    It seems that when it comes to addressing Muslim terrorism, nobody in Barack Obama’s Administration can tell the truth. His Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Jonnie Carson has declared the Muslim murder sprees in Nigeria are not driven by Islam’s hatred of any religion but their own. Carson said, “religion is not driving extremist violence” His statement came the day after a Christian church in Nigeria was bombed during an Easter Sunday service. The attack, which killed 39 Nigerian Christians, followed the same plan used by Boko Haram a Nigerian Islamist terrorist group when they killed 40 Nigerian...

  • Breitbart Warns MSNBC: 'We’re Watching You to Play the Race Card' (Feb 2012)

    Conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart issued a strong warning to the disgracefully biased cable "news" network MSNBC Friday. Appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Breitbart said, "We’re watching you to play the race card" ANDREW BREITBART: I’m just going to tell you right now, I want to end it on a media bashing note because that will uplift me like a Dionne Warwick final rendition. We’re watching you to play the race card MSNBC. We saw how you cynically placed the Reverend Sharpton in a position of absurdist power. This is Dadaism, I learned that in college, that they would...
  • University Budget Transparency vs. Secret 'Appropriations Mud Pit'

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 4/13/2012 | Jack McHugh
    Columnist Tim Skubick doesn’t like term limits, and a recent column suggests he also may not appreciate lawmaker attempts to openly rein in the bloated spending habits of Michigan’s government universities: Here’s where terms [sic] limits fits in. Years ago university honchos and house budget writers had what’s called a relationship. Sure, they had their disagreements, but an unseemly public back and forth, such as this, would have been worked out in the back room, not center stage. Term limits prevent that because none of the lawmakers have been around long enough to mold that bond of trust. Mr. Skubick...
  • Hilary Rosen's War On Mothers, Fathers, Children And Heteros

    Hilary Rosen had an unusually hardened tone to her voice as she castigated Ann Romney on Anderson Cooper's CNN program the other night. What had this outspoken gay lady had against motherhood? She and her 3 year lesbian partner (at the time, as they are now split) have been outspoken for LGBTQ* rights, but also adopted twin girls, so you would think Ms. Rosen would have a handle on the sacrifice required to perform maternal duties. Yet, when I think of maternal instincts, neither she nor her former significant other seem to have that feminine, motherly quality required to raise...

    The Lefty Report ^ | April 13, 2012
    But who’s counting? To be exact, the shameful truth is that 93% of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans. That is breathtakingly awful when you consider how incensed the African-American community is about the Trayvon tragedy, no matter what you believe about Zimmerman’s guilt. Let’s do the gruesome math, not out of morbidity, but because it manifests the incredible self-centered insanity of people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. 8,000-9,000 African-Americans are murdered each year. 93% of them by other African-Americans.

    ...Here’s our standard attack strategy: 1.The drop: someone close to the administration drops a non sequitur into an otherwise innocuous conversation. 2.The slap-shot: one of our media lap dogs wins the face off and slaps the puck as hard as he/she can down a very slippery surface. 3.The score: the designated player zips around the goalie and puts the puck in the net, thereby launching the... 4.“Liberal echo chamber elite cocooning” offensive: (i.e. the talking heads can’t stop talking about it).

    So, is there anyone left who still doesn’t recognize the absurd upside-down priorities of government driven by political correctness and environmental extremism? If so, get a gander at this news out of San Franciso (where else?): (CNSNews.com) – The government spent at least $205,075 in 2010 to ‘translocate’ a single bush in San Francisco that stood in the path of a$1.045-billion highway-renovation project that was partially funded by the economic stimulus legislation President Barack Obama signed in 2009. Yeah, a couple hundred grand of your tax money to move a bush. “Why?” you might ask. . .
