Everybody talks about which stories we’re going to air, what the line-up looks like, and which reporters we’ll have live in the field and which ones will be filing taped pieces. In the past, the left-wing bias was always left unspoken. People just ‘got it,’ because they all thought the same. “Once Obama pulled ahead of Hillary and certainly once he became president,” she said, “the bias came out of the closet....

    Harry Reid personally voted against Landrieu and screwed his own party. Checking the Roll Call this morning, Harry Reid's vote is Nay. Why did he allow the vote (since he rules the Senate with an iron fist) and then vote against her and ruin her chances in Louisiana? Nothing short of the Bills passage would have saved her down there. She's too little to late now and the union jobs are being pooched. And Obama stands above it all to pooch the Union jobs with a veto promise. This might have been the last chance for the Democrat Party (notice...

    For six years, the mainstream press has been operating on a ‘Sort of God’ meme for president Obama. They turned off their normally skeptical investigative journalist mode spinning and supporting him for three quarters of a full presidency; even saying criticism of his policies was racist. It was Even Thomas, a Newsweek editor, who may have started the meme speaking with Chris Matthew's “Hardball”. June of 2009 he spoke in pure adulation “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the county, above – above the world, he’s sort of God”. Also June of that year; the [Chicago] Sun Times...

    The Republicans did not have a national campaign except to send back Obama's words to haunt him. It was a nationally silent campaign and whoever came up with it was a genius. As long as the Republican spoke out about any national issue, the Lamestream Media would speak out against it. Whether it was abortion, healthcare, racial bating; it did not matter, the media would take the side of the Democratic party. By avoiding speaking on these issues and focusing like a laser on Obama's misstatements and obvious mistakes (Ebola and ISIL), they avoided the Democrats and the Lamestream Media's...

Considering that this is election season and only a month away. American voters can tell Obama and the Democrats how they feel about having their votes taken away.

    It is amazing the degree to which the media can politicize -- always from a leftist perspective -- just about anything in the news.

Obamacare had been enacted upon bribes and chicanery; Deemed into law even though it was written in the US Senate by Harry Reid. The American people were furious. It was obvious that most healthcare premiums would go up rather than down $2500. We would learn much later that most of it was built on a pack of lies (including The Lie of The Year for 2012). Screwing with most Americans Health Insurance resulted in a complete party voteout in the US House in 2010. And will there be an echo...

Whenever homosexuality or abortion is questioned, the Democratic party and the media throw a conniption fit. Their panties are in a wad and they come out attacking.

So this report – which is more than two years late – says over 11 million American workers will have higher health insurance premiums because of Obamacare.

    At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.” In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.” Mr. Putin’s views of the West were echoed this month by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church, who accused Western...
