    When is the best time to get something written by liberals resembling the truth about a liberal politician? The answer is after, and only after, that liberal politician has lost the final campaign of his or her career. Such is the case with authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes who in 2014 wrote a mushy book about Hillary Clinton called HRC. Of course, back then Hillary was looked upon as the heir apparent for the Democrat nomination in 2016 which resulted in a book chock full of cheerleading for the anointed one. This was in sharp contrast to their new...

    Shepard Smith has come out as a gay man in a new interview. The popular Fox News anchor, who has been with the network since it first launched 20 years ago, spoke about his sexuality in an interview with Huffington Post. Smith, 52, confirmed the long-circulating rumor when he was asked if it was former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes who prevented him from coming out of the closet. 'That's not true. He was as nice as he could be to me. I loved him like a father,' Smith said of Ailes. The 'love' Smith had for his old boss...

    A French tourist captured in North Africa by a group aligned with the Islamic State is seen beheaded in a video circulated on Wednesday, according to SITE Intelligence, which tracks jihadist groups. The Frenchman — Hervé Gourdel, a 55-year-old mountaineering guide from Nice — was abducted in Algeria on Sunday by the terrorist group, known as Jund al-Khilafah. Mr. Gourdel had arrived only a day before on a trip to go hiking in Algeria’s northern mountains.

    MSNBC's Krystal Ball was the victim of a phone prank by a Howard Stern fan pretending to be a member of the U.S. military in Ukraine who witnessed the Malaysian Airlines flight 117 crash. "Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying in the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass," the man said. "So it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training of sort of missile system that may have been coming...

    Original title: President Obama's approval rating hits a NEW all-time low in poll as only 39% of the country say he is doing a good job ------- President Obama's approval ratings have hit an all-time low as the continued problems with the health care roll out have forced him to apologize once again for his administration's mistakes. A new poll by Quinnipiac University revealed on Tuesday that 54 per cent of Americans disapprove of President Obama's job performance while only 39 per cent approve. Adding to the blow, the latest poll breaks the results down into gender and age demographics,...
  • Is Putin's post-surgery 'get well' telegram to George W. Bush a veiled slap at Obama?

    08/09/2013 7:42:14 AM PDT · by Justaham · 91 replies ^ | 8/9/13 | David Martosko
    A day after the White House announced that it would scrap a planned bilateral meeting with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president sent well-wishes to former President George W. Bush via telegram following his heart surgery. Russian media outlets were told about it promptly, and the news quickly spread. The move is already being seen as a veiled slap at Obama, whose frosty posture toward the Kremlin is a marked contrast from the congenial reception Putin received from the Bush administration. 'It may have been coincidence that the Kremlin released details of the telegram a day after Barack Obama pulled out...
  • Ed Schultz: “Thanks to a lot of Republican policies, [Detroit] is now filing for bankruptcy”

    We’ve got another one, ya’ll. I thought Melissa Harris-Perry’s utterly illogical talking point about Detroit serving as an example of what “Republicans would impose on us” was bad, but this… Do you think that maybe he actually believes what he’s saying, or that he’s just straight-up lying through his teeth because there is literally no good way to spin Detroit’s fiscal collapse as anything other than the inevitable conclusion of a total progressive utopia without peddling outright falsehoods? Because, according to Mr. Schultz — and stay with him here, because there’s a good chance you might not have realized this...

    Original title: Obama family heading back to Martha's Vineyard after skipping last summer... and this year they're renting a $7.6million mansion next to Ted Danson ------------------------------ The First Family are heading back to Martha's Vineyard for a luxurious summer vacation, and are reportedly renting a secluded six-bedroom property worth an estimated $7.6 million. President Barack Obama, wife Michelle and their two daughters missed out on a trip to the exclusive island last year due to campaigning in the 2012 elections. But they are making up for it this year and jetting off to Massachusetts on August 10 for a week....
  • Zimmerman Charges, DOJ Action Sparked by New Black Panthers Pressure

    07/14/2013 7:11:00 PM PDT · by Justaham · 42 replies ^ | 7/14/13 | J. Christian Adams
    Like the racially-charged sham prosecution of the Duke lacrosse team, the racially charged prosecution of George Zimmerman was partly triggered by the threats of Malik Zulu Shabazz, the head of the racist and anti-Semitic New Black Panther Party. The New Black Panther Party was among the first groups to agitate for Zimmerman to be prosecuted, starting with a rally outside the Sanford, Florida police headquarters on March 11, 2012--just three days after the Associated Press had errantly referred to Zimmerman as "white." Al Sharpton, widely credited with fanning the flames, arrived the next day. As Andrew Breitbart reported in 2011,...
  • Statement by the President (on Trayvon Martin verdict)

    07/14/2013 2:21:01 PM PDT · by Justaham · 30 replies
    The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in...
  • John Kerry under fire as Secretary of State takes Nantucket vacation amid Egypt military coup

    As Egypt plunges into crisis John Kerry has been allegedly spotted relaxing at his holiday home in Nantucket for Independence Day. The Secretary of State, who has just returned from a 12-day tour to the Middle East, was spotted near the July 4 festivities in the center of town, and on his yacht. With the Egyptian military ousting President Morsi amid violent protests, many in Nantucket were surprised to see Mr. Kerry at his holiday home rather than in Washington. He is staying at the popular Massachusetts island near Cape Cod with his daughters and their husbands, according to the...

    President Obama is under fire for the price of the first family’s upcoming weeklong trip to Africa, which could cost taxpayers as much as $100 million at a time of federal budget cuts and furloughs. The Obamas’ trip will take them to Senegal, Tanzania and South Africa from June 26 to July 3. The excursion will involve military cargo planes airlifting 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines, and three trucks to carry bulletproof glass panels to cover the windows where the family is set to stay. One estimate of the cost has pegged the bill to U.S. taxpayers at somewhere...

    The long-running news show formerly helmed by Jim Lehrer will make its first major layoffs in nearly 20 years, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The company will close its offices in San Francisco and Denver, and eliminate some of its production positions at its Washington, D.C. headquarters. "The PBS Newshour's" executive producer said that the program hoped to "build new relationships with a variety of locally based freelance video journalists around the country." "A steady drop in corporate revenue" contributed to the program's decision to cut back.
  • Rep. Cummings (D-MD): IRS Scandal 'Solved'

    On CNN’s State of the Union this morning, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) told Candy Crowley that the IRS scandal involving targeting of conservatives had been “solved.” Crowley asked, “As far as you are concerned, based on the information that you now have, which in its totality is greater than ours, is this case over, have you solved the case of the IRS and how this came to be?” Cummings answered, “Based upon everything I’ve seen, the case is solved. If it were me, I’d wrap this case up and move on.” Cummings added that he would release transcripts of IRS...
  • 'Daily Show' Creator Says Oklahoma Tornado Meant for Conservatives, Apologizes

    Lizz Winstead heard about the tornado touching down in Oklahoma today and her liberal ideology quickly kicked in. Winstead, who created The Daily Show and uses social media to promote her far-left views, sent out this Twitter joke earlier today: "This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives." Social media brushback quickly followed, and Winstead served up a speedy apology for letting her progressive nature supercede a sense of decency toward the victims of the tornado. "Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained....

    Original title: 'As an African-American you have to work twice as hard': Obama tells Morehouse graduates he has a 'special obligation' to help less-fortunate black people ----------------------------------- President Barack Obama told graduates from the traditionally African-American Morehouse College yesterday that 'as a black man' he feels a 'special obligation' to help those less fortunate them him.

  • US Jobless Claims Jump to Highest Level in 6 Weeks

    The number of Americans seeking unemployment aid rose 32,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 360,000, the most since late March. The jump comes after applications fell to a five-year low. The Labor Department said Thursday that the less volatile four-week average rose just 1,250 to 339,250, a level consistent with modest job gains. Julia Coronado, an economist at BNP Paribas, said the small increase in the average "highlight(s) the need to take volatile weekly readings with a grain of salt.... The underlying story in jobless claims continues to be one of gradual improvement." Weekly applications are a proxy for...

    Breitbart News has obtained an exclusive video of Attorney General Eric Holder flatly rejecting the idea of appointing a special counsel to investigate Benghazi. Filmed on May 15 and provided to Breitbart News by Special Operations Speaks, the video shows Holder emerge from his car and walk towards the Rayburn House Office Building for hearings on the IRS scandal. Holder is clearly asked, "Mr. Holder, will you appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Benghazi?" In equally clear tones, Holder answers, "No," and disappears into the building.
