    After the initial wave of jubilation that followed the announcement of Osama bin Laden's death, the political analysis has begun and the liberal media consensus seems clear: this is an enormous political victory for the President, and it all but guarantees a 2012 election victory for President Obama. The first part of this is true; it must be conceded that this is an enormous feather in the cap of Mr. Obama, and while there are those of us who will roll our eyes at his failure to acknowledge the contribution of his predecessor to the operation, the feather is deserved....

    The vile hate directed towards Sarah Palin over the last two and a half years have been shocking in their intensity. Over the last week this hate towards her has reached such a crescendo that death threats against Palin's life has increased to an unprecedented level. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/blood-libel-sarah-palins-controversial-reference-riled-emotions/story?id=12601352 On January 6 2010 the Daily Kos published a blog written by BlueBoy which is titled "MY Congresswoman voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now dead to me!" Immediately after the murders in Tuscon, Az the blog was removed from the Daily Kos website. A link to a copy of the blog is...

    Time to refresh our memory: The most beautiful sound obama has ever heard From the article: "Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” ************************ The first few lines from the "call to prayer" is the shahada. The shahada is not from the koran. It is from the hadiths. Furthermore, it is the SWEARING OF AN OATH to islam. Non-Muslims...

    President Obama is surrendering national security with a radical appointment at the Defense Department. Rosa Brooks, this month made adviser to Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Michelle Flournoy, will be in a position to do significant damage to U.S. security. This position is at the critical locus of defense policy making...According to a George W. Bush-era occupant of that office: "If she wanted to write her wacky ideas into policy controlling the entire defense establishment, that would be the place to do it." A review of Ms. Brooks' published work reveals her hard-left, rabidly ideological positions on defense matters...she argues...
  • Cindy Sheehan Has Her Daily Kos Account Taken Away (Democrat Civil War)

    Cindy Sheehan Has Her Daily Kos Account Taken Away A useful idiot who is no longer useful gets purged from the movement. I can't post here anymore because my potential run for Congress is not on the Democratic ticket. ... If Speaker Pelosi does her constitutionally mandated duty and I don't run, then I can come back and post. I know a lot of you are hostile towards my candidacy. Please understand that I am doing it for your children and grandchildren (and my surviving ones.) Remember, it's the left that allows "colorful and far-ranging" debates on the issue while...

    RENO, Nev. - Sen. Barack Obama vowed Thursday to restore environmental protections the Bush administration has rolled back through executive orders, especially at the Environmental Protection Agency. Obama said the EPA has been "demoralized. [Snip] Making his third appearance in Nevada, Obama said much of the Bush administration's weakening of environmental regulations has been accomplished through administrative orders without congressional action. "That means President Obama can reverse them by executive order," Obama told reporters after a speech to about 4,000 at a downtown Reno park on an island in the middle of the Truckee River. [Snip] The first-term senator also...
  • The Old Media Masks Are Off

    06/28/2004 1:12:10 PM PDT · by ConservativeMajority · 9 replies · 152+ views
    My liberal colleagues in the press don’t even bother to hide their bias any longer. The Old Media has coalesced with the left-wing 527s like MoveOn.org, the Media Fund and Americans Coming Together to form a political force allied with the Democratic National Committee. At a book party last Wednesday celebrating yet another Bush-bashing screed, the Hard Left was in full throat – and cheered by members of the supposedly impartial media. The author being feted suggested that it was his book that may have contributed to the President’s slide in the polls, particularly one that measured credibility. But what...

    It is simply astounding that some people are spinning this Reagan movie controversy as a censorship issue. The usual left-wing suspects are screaming the "conservatives" forced CBS to abandon the project. The New York Times editorialized, "It should have come as no surprise that conservatives, protective of Mr. Reagan's image at all times, would launch on the fierce assaults that have become so familiar whenever the right wants to scare the media ... " And Barbra Streisand, an increasingly amusing presence, says "this is censorship pure and simple." One wonders if The Times and La Streisand would react the same...

    Columnists' Corner "The New Counterculture " By Gary Aldrich On Nov. 7, 1972, the New Left, also known as the “Counterculture,” suffered a major defeat at the polls when Leftist presidential candidate George McGovern lost 49 states to Richard Nixon. Nixon’s joy was short-lived. His re-election caused a furious counter-reaction by the emerging Hard-Left ideologues like Hillary Rodham Clinton. This movement, nurtured on the dreams of a Marxist-style revolution, had to settle instead for grown-up pragmatism that had as its basic tenet that to destroy the hated “system,” you first had to join it. They left the romantic Counterculture...

    What do Labour intellectuals really think?(Filed: 31/01/2003) 'I see Tony Blair as shallow," said John Carey, Emeritus Professor of English at Oxford and chairman of this year's Booker Prize judges. "He never says anything memorable or profound. There doesn't seem to be a mind there - only a publicity agency. The criterion always seems to be: 'How will this go down?' I also don't like the smugness and the smile, both of which seem to bespeak a kind of vanity."Another thing that made Labour supporters such as himself squirm, he went on, was "the social level Blair belongs to -...
