    PJ Media ^ | 12-22-14 | Victor Davis Hanson
    One way of reinventing reality is to warp the meaning of words. No president in memory has waged such a war on the English language as has Barack Obama — changing the meaning of vocabulary to hide what he fears might otherwise be unpopular.

    Hardball/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    by Mark Finkelstein June 27, 2006 You're having a first conversation with someone. Alright, maybe you don't agree with him, but he seems rational. Then, out of the blue, he comes out with something so strange, so disconnected from reality, that you say to yourself 'whoah! - who is this guy?' And you go back and rethink everything else he had said in light of his suddenly-exposed madness. That's what is was like watching Chris Matthews' interview of Ken Auletta on this evening's Hardball. Alright, Auletta's the media columnist of the New Yorker. So you have no illusions. This is...

    House GOP budget talks collapse By William L. Watts, MarketWatch Last Update: 9:06 PM ET Apr 6, 2006 WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Divided by disagreements within their own party and unable to attract Democratic support, House Republican leaders shelved efforts Thursday to bring a $2.7 trillion budget outline for fiscal 2007 to a vote ahead of a two-week Easter recess. "We owe it to American taxpayers to craft a budget that spends their tax dollars wisely, and it is unfortunate Democrats would refuse to consider a fiscally-responsible approach rejecting the failed policies of more taxes and more spending," said House Majority...

    Putin: Ally or Terrorist? by William F. Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...
  • HISTORIAN BURKETT: KERRY IN METALS MELTDOWN!

    Meanwhile, Burkett is digging below the surface of the official paperwork -- revealed and yet unrevealed -- hoping that the relatively small Vietnam Swift Boat community will come forth and reveal a more realistic picture of Kerry's truncated tour in Vietnam. That tour was cut short by Kerry invoking an informal regulation that permitted thrice-wounded Navy personnel to leave the combat zone early. Retired Lt. Cmdr. Grant Hibbard, his commanding officer at the time, now says the wound for which Kerry was awarded his first Purple Heart "resembled a scrape from a fingernail." Burkett, who has been receiving intelligence from...
