  • Paul Krugman, Won’t You Help Me Be a Better Person?

    I find myself on the wrong side of the facts. Again. So says Paul Krugman: Still, wouldn’t private insurers reduce costs through the magic of the marketplace? No. All, and I mean all, the evidence says that public systems like Medicare and Medicaid, which have less bureaucracy than private insurers (if you can’t believe this, you’ve never had to deal with an insurance company) and greater bargaining power, are better than the private sector at controlling costs.I know this flies in the face of free-market dogma, but it’s just a fact.And Krugman should know. As the following clip shows, this is...

    There must be something in Bill Maher's contract with HBO that requires him to make at least one joke about the former Alaska governor on every show. In his monologue beginning the most recent installment of "Real Time," the host said Charlie Sheen's childish, needlessly defensive, nonsensical behavior is like Sarah Palin on coke. BILL MAHER: What a week, right, people? I mean, this week Americans turned on their television sets and were witness to a pathetic disaster slowly unfolding. And then after the Oscars were over… [Laughter and applause] MAHER: …then Charlie Sheen started to give interviews and it...

    It's not unusual for Bill Maher to accuse his ideological opponents of being flat-earthers. But he took the concept to a new extreme over the weekend in his analysis of history and the political spectrum. According to Maher, when you go too far to the Left, you end up on the Right. “Both [the Russian and French] revolutions got hijacked by the right-wing – and the Iranian Revolution,” Maher added. However, Maher explained that you could argue the Russian Revolution was “hijacked by the left-wing,” but due to the nature of it being that far left, it was really...

In discussing Maher’s theory that Beck & Palin fever has cooled across America, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Namby Pamby Land) shared his thoughts, and fuzzy math, about the Beck audience.

  • “Just an Entertainer”: Bill O’Reilly Gives Bill Maher A Free Pass to Give America the Finger

    01/18/2011 11:49:53 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 50 replies
    Would-be comedian and commentator Bill Maher decided to close out this season’s premiere of Real Time with his tiresome rant against the Tea Party - or, as he likes to call them, the “teabaggers.” Maher, a Leftist windbag, once again is giving the finger to the American people and to our Constitution – a trait he shares with so many of his friends on the Left. On “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, Bill O’Reilly chided Maher for not following President Obama’s advice to engage in more civil dialogue. However, he let Maher off the hook on the grounds that he...

    Like most of the media this week, Bill Maher and his Real Time panel last night spent a great deal of time trying to explain the reasons why the Arizona shootings last week occurred. And while it was clear that Jared Loughner committed the acts because of mental problems, the question was why people like him turn to violence in the first place. One suggestion Maher put on the table: America’s lack of universal health care. The official topic at hand was gun control, and gun culture in certain parts of the country. Maher noted that it appears “half the...

    If you’ve ever watched Bill Maher’s Friday HBO show, you know he holds a lot of resentment toward conservatives and their beliefs. But what’s his ideal vision for the United States? On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the outspoken entertainer offered a hint. He asked his guest Martin Short, a Canadian-American actor, if he noticed that Canada and the United States were drifting apart culturally. “When you were a boy…things I think were different,” Maher said. “The United States and Canada were more alike. When you were skiing on the snowcap plains of Manitoba, but it...

    Hot Air ^ | 1/15/11 | Michael van der Galien
    Talk show host Bill Maher once again displayed his ignorance for America’s history and founding by telling Tea Partiers that the Founding Fathers would have “hated” their “guts.” As you’d come to expect from Maher he constantly referred to members of the Tea Party as “teabaggers” – which would probably be an insult coming from virtually everybody else. When Maher uses this word, however, the Tea Party should wear it as a badge of honor. Next he told Tea Partiers that the Founding Fathers were “nothing like them.” No, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, George Washington and all the...

    On the season premier of "Real Time" host Bill Maher directly compared the Tucson shooter to Sarah Palin. "And whatever you do, do not compare her to the shooter because he is a gun-loving lunatic who can't hold a job and leaves rambling message on the internet. So, there is -- please, there's -- come on. He's on MySpace, she's on Facebook!," Maher said.

    Commentary ^ | 01/12/11 | John Steele Gordon
    I agree completely with Pete that Krauthammer’s column is a great blow to Krugman. It’s made all the more forceful by the fact that Krauthammer is not only a brilliant columnist but also a psychiatrist by training. I also agree that this may be a tipping point in Krugman’s disgraceful career as a columnist. For one thing, he is intellectually lazy and seems to operate on the principle that a Krugman assertion is, ipso facto, an established fact. He rarely buttresses his assertions with evidence. His one bit of evidence that ”eliminationist rhetoric” in American political life is overwhelmingly on...

  • No compromises: Bill Maher comes out swinging at State Theatre (Loony Libtard Ping!)

    Bill Maher is not ready for moderation. While his fellow comedians Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert recently held a rally in Washington to "turn it down a notch," Maher came out swinging at the far right without compromise Sunday night at Easton's State Theatre. Dressed in a black T-shirt and black pants, he alternated facts (which he says are hated by the Tea Party) and one liners to give his views on U.S. politics. The 54-year old said that in his lifetime, the left has moved to the center and the right has moved to a mental hospital. Responding to...

    In the face of opposition to their radical agenda, President Obama and his administration have made statements to the effect of, We haven’t done a good enough job explaining our policies to the American people. These comments reflect a profound arrogance which assumes that the only reason a rational person would oppose a leftist idea is because they do not understand it. Egregious as that attitude may be, it at least supposes that Americans are capable of understanding proposals which are properly explained. Left-wing zealot Bill Maher doesn't give us that much credit. On Friday’s Real Time, he took the...

    A New York Times Columnist, Paul Krugman, touched the third rail of Obamacare Sunday, while on ABC's 'This Week' when he made a statement confirming the need for 'death panels' as a means of containing health care costs (see video). Krugman is not the first person who has advocated the use of 'death panels' and yet liberals excoriated Sarah Palin for pointing out that the Obamacare bill contains what many on the left have said needed to be done. During the discussion, which was about the Deficit Commission's recent recommendations on cutting expenses, Krugman made his statement in response to...
  • Leftist Ideologue Bill Maher Befuddled by Mid-Terms

    11/09/2010 7:36:25 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 26 replies
    One difference between a political commentator and an ideologue is that the former understands his opposition. Here at NRB, one of our primary objectives is to seek and convey an accurate understanding of the ideologies we oppose. As a result, it never surprises us when a socialist acts like a socialist, or when an Islamist acts like an Islamist. We do not have to agree with people in order to understand their point of view. Despite a professed capacity for empathy, pundits on the Left seem to have more difficulty than conservatives when it comes to understanding those with whom...

    It’s hard to tell what the end goal of HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher’s is with his constant barrage of elitist shots at the American public. Does he think demeaning the average citizens is the best way to win people over on whatever issue he is carping about on that given day? On the Oct. 26 broadcast of TBS’s “Lopez Tonight,” Maher took a couple of cynical and contemptible jabs at the America people. After expressing his disappointment in the Obama administration for not agreeing to abide by the will of California voters should Proposition 19 pass and decriminalize...

Nicolle laughed hysterically at every vulgar,rude slanderous remark that Maher made about basically ALL the Tea Party candidates. She mocked COD about the first amendment? We all know that COD was only stating the fact that the phrase separation of Church and State was not in the Constitution. Nicolle was just hateful. I...

    What is it called when someone has paranoid delusions that someone with paranoid delusions is out to get him? Whatever it is, Bill Maher has it in spades. This guy is seriously paranoid about paranoid Christians – or as he calls them, “nativist bedwetters” who wave signs on Tax Day and offer burnt sacrifices, I gather, to the most “Evil Dingbat,” Sarah Palin. On Monday’s Tonight Show, Maher snarked about the dreaded Sunday School teachers, organists, moms in jumpers, and little girls in patent leather shoes who “control the national dialogue” and “perpetuate mass delusion” – through electromagnetic microwaves, I...

    Barring any ill-timed victories, Bill Maher has already achieved his goal for posterity. “I’d like to be remembered as the loser of the most Emmy Awards, ever!” said the veteran comedian, who earned 22 Emmy nominations between 1995 and last year but has yet to win one. While political corruption and hypocrisy have long been among his favorite targets, he directs his fire at both the left and the right. “The Democrats used to be the party of the little guy,” Maher said. “Now, they are the party of oil companies, banks and other special interests, and they (vote to)...

    The Nobel hasn't conferred any classiness on Paul Krugman. Dancing on the GOP's grave this morning in his NYT column, the newly-minted laureate impugns the party of Lincoln as "a haven for racists and reactionaries." According to Krugman [file photo], tomorrow's election will purge the Republican congressional delegation of some of its more moderate members, leaving it even more "extreme." The only evidence Krugman adduces in support of his Republican-are-racists slur is that GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia "observing large-scale early voting by African-Americans, warns his supporters that 'the other folks are voting.'” Where's the racism, given that 90+%...
