    TUSCON, Ariz ( KTLA) -- Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged Tucson gunman, was described Saturday as a politically radical loner. Now an internet trail emerged in which he apparently railed against the US government and told friends: "Please don't be mad at me". There are unconfirmed reports that 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner once met with Rep. Giffords in 2007. A former high school friend said that he had often talked about meeting and talking with the congresswoman. Arizona court records show Loughner has twice been charged with previous offenses. The first, in October 2007, related to the possession...

    "The Communist Manifesto" and Hitler's "Mein Kampf" were among the favorite reading materials of Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunmen in today's fatal shooting that reportedly left six dead and gravely injured a U.S. congresswoman. Lougher, 22, listed those tomes among his favorites on his YouTube channel, in which he wrote that "conscience dreams" were a "great study" at his college, Pima Community College. One user on Twitter, Caitie Parker, wrote she went to high school, college and was in a band with the gunman. She said she hadn't seen him since 2007. Parker wrote of Lougher, "As I knew...

  • Mad Men Star Thinks Having Kids is Irresponsibly Hurting Environment

    If you would like to believe that some people in Hollywood are sane then don’t look to the cast of Mad Men. The popular cable show has at least one guy who basically thinks having children is irresponsible and hurts the environment. He hopes the rest of us will learn to live as responsibly as him. Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser did an interview this week with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall to talk about how to go green. The progressive network thought the actor was qualified to interview, because he’s insanely green in his personal life. The guy has no car, thinks...
  • A Terrorist Appeal to the Left

    A recently released propaganda video by the Islamic extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir is quite revealing. Not only does the video demonstrate the group’s growing effort to package arguments in a manner designed to appeal to Westerners on the political left, but it also serves as a barometer of radical Muslim groups’ broader shift in rhetorical strategy. The video, “Iraq: Past and Present Colonialism,” appears for the first twenty-seven minutes to be a standard leftist critique of the Iraq war, indistinguishable from Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. The slickly-produced video begins with the history of past colonialism in Iraq—including the Mongol conquest...
  • Foundation urges sponsors to shun Fox News

    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A California non-profit is urging sponsors to pull their ads from Fox News Channel, because of "a would-be assassin inspired by" Fox personality Glenn Beck. The Tides Foundation, which says it promotes human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment, has come in for frequent criticism on Beck's show. A suspect in a July 28 shootout with police, Byron Williams, told police in an affidavit he had intended to go to the Tides Foundation's office in San Francisco and kill founder and Chief Executive Officer Drummond Pike.

    Two top California legislators are coming under fire after new evidence has emerged that they helped a group of radical antiwar activists cross the Iraqi-Jordanian border in order to deliver aid to families of enemy insurgents in the war-ridden Iraqi city of Fallujah. In December 2004, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) and Rep. Henry Waxman (D) each sent letters of diplomatic courtesy to the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, requesting assistance for members of the radical group Global Exchange and the antiwar group Palisadians for Peace. The letters, according to a January 4, 2005 article written by Islam Online correspondent Adam...

    The commission appointed by President Obama to investigate the Gulf oil spill (the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling) does not include a single member with specialized knowledge of petroleum engineering. This is akin to performing a heart transplant with a surgical team that has never set foot in an operating room. Of the seven members appointed to the commission, not one is a petroleum engineer, and all have long-standing ties to the environmental movement. This is certainly the case with Frances Beinecke, Donald Boesch, Terry Garcia, and Frances Ulmer, all of whom have...

    Jonathan Alter's report just the first chapter of presidential work in progress When this writer was a young boy, he overheard a woman of considerable age and learning remark, only half in jest, “I have to read Walter Lippmann every morning so I know what I think.” Go ahead. Admit it. You do something like that, too. We all do. It isn’t that we are Dittoheads. It isn’t that we are chumps. But we typically have favorite pundits we like to look to. Some news happens, a White House leak or a gulf oil spill, and even as we consider...

    Stop the presses! Pigs are flying! Hell is freezing over! The same Black liberal Democrat church leaders that have always willingly broken IRS rules to allow Democrats campaign in their churches have apparently experienced their “Road to Damascus Moment.” They are now demanding that the Democrats who rule them in Chicago allow the hated (by liberals) WalMart to open a store within the limits of the Windy City. A group of more than 200 Black church leaders representing about 100,000 people is demanding that Mayor Richard M. Daley “make it happen” and the store be opened as soon as possible...

    Remember when Sarah Palin told us she was quitting as governor of Alaska because she's not a quitter, and she explained what her mission would be in the weeks and months to come? "I'm gonna do some huntin' and some fishin' for sure, but I'm also gonna make me a boatload of dough," Palin said. "What with the book sellin' and the public speakin' and whatnot, I'll be making way more money than any of your losers in the lamestream media!" Oh wait. She didn't say that. What Palin said in part was: "I choose, for my state and my...

    “I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.” -- William F. Buckley At this point, I would go Buckley one better: I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 254 people we could pull out of a minimum security prison rather than the Democrats who are currently in Congress. In all fairness to the Democrats we have in charge now, that change probably wouldn't make Congress any less corrupt (not much more corrupt either), but at least...
  • Rep. Steve Cohen says Tea Party movement shows America's hardcore side against diversity

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- U.S. Congressman Steve Cohen is drawing national attention for remarks he made about the tea party movement in a recent radio interview. The Commercial Appeal reports that the two-term Democrat said the tea party - "without hoods and robes" - has shown an angry, hardcore side of America that's against diversity. He made the comments Thursday night on The Young Turks, an Internet and satellite radio talk show. Cohen went on to say tea party members have shown hostility toward anybody who isn't "a clone of George Wallace's fan club," and that he has seen no...

    ACORN Closing in Wake of Scandal Monday, March 22, 2010 CHICAGO — The once mighty community activist group ACORN says it's folding. National ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan says the organization's board decided to close remaining state affiliates and field offices by April 1 because of falling revenues. Some other national operations will continue operating for at least several weeks before shutting for good. Scandal enveloped the organization six months ago when video footage emerged showing ACORN workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute. Several big affiliates, including ACORN New York and California, broke away...

    Rosie O’Donnell has teamed with syndication vets Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin to develop another daytime talk show, according to the Hollywood Reporter. With The Oprah Winfrey Show preparing to sunset next year, O’Donnell is hoping to launch a new yakker that could conceivably fill the bill in the fall of 2011. Dick Robertson, the former head of syndication of Warner Bros. Television, and Scott Carlin, who worked with Robertson there for years, have sealed a deal to distribute O'Donnell's new talk show, which will probably premiere in fall 2011. Robertson and Carlin worked closely with O'Donnell on her first...

    Acorn on Brink of Bankruptcy, Officials Say By IAN URBINA BALTIMORE — The community organizing group Acorn, battered politically from the right and suffering from mismanagement along with a severe loss of government and other funds, is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy, officials of the group said Friday. Acorn is holding a teleconference this weekend to discuss plans for a bankruptcy filing, two officials of the group said. They asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak to the news media. Over the last six months, at least 15 of the group’s 30 state...
