    Time to Call Out the Jackals In the Lamestream. Again. A quick behind the scenes look at how disingenuous the media is; a reminder why Americans distrust them. Willow and I were trapped today for hours at the Des Moines airport, along with what seemed the majority of the international media trying to fly out from last night's Iowa caucus. Having nothing else to do, the cream of the crop in the press corps decided it would be fun to do their thing and hassle... while we were walking in, checking in, through TSA, at all the gate changes, etc....
  • Exclusive — RNC Officially Severs Ties With NBC News For Upcoming GOP Debate

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) officially voted on Monday afternoon to sever its business relationship with NBC News for the previously-scheduled Feb. 26, 2016, GOP presidential primary debate, Breitbart News has learned. The Debate Committee for the RNC met via conference call and after hearing updates from RNC chairman Reince Priebus officially voted to cancel the partnership with NBC, according to sources on the call. The vote was unanimous. After the October debate hosted by NBC partner CNBC—in which co-moderator John Harwood was roundly criticized for a poor performance—the RNC suspended its relationship with NBC News over that upcoming Houston...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may be the rare breed of political prizefighter who warns his opponent exactly where he's going to throw a punch - and yet still manages to land the blow, more often than not.Take, for example, Trump's recent decision to raise questions about whether Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's Canadian birthplace could endanger his presidential candidacy. Cruz has laughed off Trump's suggestion - but he can't say he didn't see the attack coming. The outspoken billionaire offered fair warning that he might come after Cruz if the Texas senator began to rival him in primary polls."I noticed...

    If we're counting press clips, in politics the year 2015 was dominated by Donald Trump. The liberal press is emotionally conflicted on this one. Some are delighted with the notion that he's going to destroy the Republican brand with oafish overstatements. Some are disgusted that he's still in the race despite all the negativity they've piled all over him. And now some are worried he might even win and, in so doing, end civilization as we know it. Liberals would have you believe they are far more nuanced and far less mean-spirited than the Trumps of the world. It's a...

    Ted Cruz on Friday put a bit of distance between himself and arguably his closest ally in the presidential race: Donald Trump. Kicking off a two-day swing through Iowa, the U.S. senator from Texas was asked about Trump's apparent openness Thursday to a national registry of American Muslims in the wake of the recent Paris terrorist attacks. "I'm a big fan of Donald Trump's, but not a fan of government registries of American citizens," Cruz told reporters before a town hall at Briar Cliff University. The "First Amendment protects religious liberty." Asked Thursday by NBC News if he wanted to...

    During CNBC's GOP debate, Ted Cruz not only demonstrated that he is the kind of problem solver the American people want, he also showed that he is the kind of leader the American people need. In the aftermath of Cruz's performance, the liberal media and establishment supporters on the right leapt in to spin mode. They've been trying to convince their audiences that the hardest-hitting response of Wednesday night was nothing more than a clever dodge to a tough question. But you can analyze Cruz's sizzling answer and its positive effects all by yourself. Cruz unveiled a dignified contempt...

    Weeks after NBC granted Hillary Clinton the favor of appearing on "Saturday Night Live," playing a bartender to the actress who impersonates her on the comedy show, the same leftist activists who adored that routine are trying to prevent Donald Trump from hosting the show on Nov. 7. A group called "The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda" has written a letter to NBC objecting to the booking. MoveOn.org has organized a "Dump Donald Trump" petition drive with hundreds of thousands of leftist signatures. Another petition on Change.org also drew a leftist throng through social media, aided by the hashtag RacismIsntFunny. The...

    We've been waiting for the media attacks on Ben Carson to begin. To this point he'd been (relatively) untouched: He wasn't viewed as a credible threat. But his numbers aren't receding. They're growing. So he's now in the crosshairs. The "news" networks have spent several days manufacturing outrage over Carson, saying that if he were in a mass-shooting situation, he would want to fight back. "I would not just stand there and let him shoot me." It didn't matter how many millions of sensible Americans -- especially males -- would have that same thought. Experts insist distracting the shooter by...

    The invective against Dr. Ben Carson coming from the left is extraordinary, even for the left. Now that Carson, one of the pre-eminent brain surgeons in America, has become a viable candidate for president, the left has labelled him everything awful it can come up with. One left-wing columnist, Charles Blow of The New York Times, even disparaged his intelligence. But there were two attacks made this past week that should be beyond the pale even for the left. The first was that Carson "blamed the victims" in the Roseburg, Oregon, community college mass murder. How did that happen? On...

    How about the next time the mainstream media decide to fabricate a controversy against a conservative presidential candidate, they choose something less laughable? The media's latest faux gasp concerns Dr. Ben Carson's comments about the Oregon school shooting. When I first watched news reports on it, I didn't immediately grasp the reason for the fuss, not having the artificial sensibilities of the MSM. Asked what he would do in a similar situation as the victims, Carson said: "I would ask everybody to attack the gunman because he can only shoot one of us at a time. That way, we don't...

The law states fetuses arent alive because they arent considered viable; meaning they cant survive on their own apart from their incubator in most gestational stages. Even after the fetus emerges from its incubator it is still not legally protected as a child or a person. Doesnt anyone listen to Barack Obama? Obama clarifies any confusion about this. On March 30, 2001 he argued before the Illinois General Assembly that if a doctor is required to have to keep...

    Year after year, Louisiana didn't have enough money to cover its expenses, yet Gov. Bobby Jindal refused to roll back income tax cuts or ever-increasing corporate tax breaks. Instead, he raided reserve funds and sold off state property. ...The governor has successfully trimmed some spending by cutting more than 30,000 full-time state employees. He's reduced the state's vehicle fleet, privatized much of the Medicaid program, turned over the state's charity hospitals to outside managers and looked for ways to make state government more efficient. That hasn't closed all the gaps, however, and Jindal's short-term solutions leave a string of debts...

Further, the media as a whole are being accused of manipulating some of her statements. These allegations come not from a conservative news source, but rather from Slate.com. The key phrase latched onto by most media outlets, due to its sensational nature, was George Zimmerman got away with murder words that were, in fact, said by Juror B29.

    The story fed to the press would outrage anyoneand, predictably, it outraged everyone.

The meme of a huge armed adult stalking a helpless child was born fully grown, to a Godzilla-like size. It loomed over America unopposed.

    Attorney General Eric Holder blasted "stand-your-ground laws" in the wake of the acquittal of George Zimmerman for fatally shooting Trayvon Martinsaying such laws cause more violence than they prevent. Mr. Holder, speaking to the NAACP Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla., not far from where Mr. Zimmerman was acquitted last week, took direct aim at stand-your-ground laws, which say a person can use force in self-defense without first attempting to retreat from the situation. "Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nations attention, its time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow

    Attention gay people: Stop posting all those kissing photos on Facebook. Or Pat Robertsons gonna hurl. The 83-year-old televangelist said Monday on his Christian Broadcasting Network show The 700 Club that he wishes Facebook had a vomit button he could use when he sees same-sex couples kissing. That was his response to a viewer who asked how to deal with those images on social media.

    A last-minute no-show by Pope Francis at a concert where he was to have been the guest of honor has sent another clear signal that he is going to do things his way and does not like the Vatican high life. The gala classical concert on Saturday was scheduled before his election in March. But the white papal armchair set up in the presumption that he would be there remained empty. Minutes before the concert was due to start, an archbishop told the crowd of cardinals and Italian dignitaries that an "urgent commitment that cannot be postponed" would prevent Francis...

    Here it is ... the Michael Jackson death scene ... every single shocking photo taken, from the doll he slept with, Propofol bottles, Dr. Murray's mysterious medical bag, portentous writing on the wall, old costumes ... everything.

A few of these photos trickled out during Dr. Murray's criminal trial, but now they're all here in one gallery ... ALL 155. The gallery is a fascinating window into how Michael lived ... and how he died.
  • Message from the ruins of Qusair

    Washington Post ^ | June 6, 2013 | By Charles Krauthammer
    On Wednesday, Qusair fell to the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria. Qusair is a strategic town that connects Damascus with Assads Alawite heartland on the Mediterranean, with its ports and Russian naval base. Its a major strategic shift. Assads forces can now advance on rebel-dominated areas in central and northern Syria, including Aleppo. For the rebels, its a devastating loss of territory, morale and their supply corridor to Lebanon. No one knows if this reversal of fortune will be the last, but everyone knows that Assad now has the upper hand. What altered the tide of battle was brazen outside...
  • Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield Hold Split-Screen Interview in Same Parking Lot

    The Atlantic Wire ^ | May 07, 2013 | Dashiell Bennett and Philip Bump
    In a bizarre television and spatial anomaly on CNN this morning, the blanket coverage of two true-crime stories led two news anchors to conduct an odd "satellite" interview from the very same parking lot, background traffic and all. The two suspects are Ashleigh Banfield of CNN and Nancy Grace of Headline News, who were updating viewers on the latest from the ongoing and increasingly ugly Cleveland kidnapping story. (Grace being TV's leading expert on deviant crime.) At first it seems like a normal TV "remote," as Banfield interviews Grace from another location. Then the channel's graphics alert viewers: both anchors...

    MSNBC contributor Joy-Ann Reid is either grossly misinformed, ignorant or just willing to lie to NBC's audience. In an effort to enhance her glowing praise of President Obama's response to the Boston Marathon bombings, Reid contrasted it with her memory of President Bush's response to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

I'm gonna take a little test here. Mr. Snerdley, do you know what happened in Cyprus on Saturday? You gotta be kidding me. You read a headline and you don't know?

He-he. Did you hear, these poor people, their towline broke late yesterday afternoon. They were towing that giant Carnival cruise ship and the towline broke so they got the towline fixed. They finally tow the thing back into port, they put these people on buses to take 'em back to New Orleans, and one of the buses broke down. One of the buses broke down on...

    Theyre at it again. The latest public rant against Michelle Obamas effort to promote low-calorie school lunches was recently caught on tape in Alabama the usual protest against the federal government meddling in local business. And then it quickly found its way around to the first ladys posterior. Fat butt Michelle Obama, said Bob Grisham, a high school football coach who was surreptitiously recorded by one of his students. Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. Shes overweight. Grisham, who was suspended Monday, is neither the first nor the most high-profile person to feel moved...

We're on the verge of a recovery! The unemployment situation (they keep telling us) is improving. Even though we added people to the unemployment rolls yesterday, that was called "stability" by the AP. We're still at 375,000 unemployment applications every week, but we're on the verge -- we're on the verge! -- of overcoming the big mess left by George W. Bush and,...

    After more than five years of resisting a lawsuit requesting inspection of public records, KNME-TV has been ordered into mediation where it will face claims for civil fines and attorney fees that could reach $200,000 and higher. KNME-TV is the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate at the University of New Mexico. The suit arose from KNME-TVs production for hire of a misleadingly labeled news documentary on the controversial Navajo water settlement. The program was called The Water Haulers and was commissioned and paid for by the Navajo Nation and the State Engineer of New Mexico. They wanted the program to...
