  • Old news from January: Paris mayor plans to sue Fox News

    11/19/2015 7:31:24 AM PST · by granada · 3 replies ^ | January 20, 2015 | Foxnews
    The mayor of Paris said Tuesday she plans to sue Fox News for its reporting, later retracted, that so-called “no-go zones” for non-Muslims and local authorities exist in the French capital and other European cities. "When we're insulted, then I think we'll have to sue, I think we'll have to go to court, in order to have these words removed," Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a television interview. Hildalgo repeated her intention to sue in later statements and tweets attributed to her office. Fox News responded to the mayor’s remarks with a statement from Michael Clemente, Executive Vice President for...

    An animal rights activist was beaten with a duck by a Spanish woman defending one of the country's most bizarre and controversial festival traditions. The man was whacked with the bird while he filmed the annual "duck chase" in the Catalonian seaside town of Roses, where every August ducks are thrown into the Mediterranean and then caught and brought back to the shore by swimmers. "Continue, continue. Continue to abuse, I am filming you. A little bit of empathy for the animals. They also have a life, like your children or your family," the man who was filming can be...
  • Huckabee Promotes GOP-E, Demeans Conservatives

    I've noticed for a while now that Huckabee has picked up the meme of the GOP-E that conservatives are injuring the Republican Party. That was the point of liberal Scot Brown on his show this week...normalizing a liberal. I've also noticed a few articles saying the Hucklebug is again interested in running for office. This probably means that Huck knows where the moneyed cronies are and has to curry favor with them. I've watched, and I always come away with the impression that the huckleberry points the finger at conservatives, at those who would primary the GOP establishment turncoats, and...
  • Rupert Murdoch gleeful at BBC debacle in Britain

    Few seem to be enjoying the management meltdown at the venerable BBC more than Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp. chief whose rival British newspapers have been caught up in their own lengthy, embarrassing and expensive phone-hacking scandal. But the troubles for both media organizations highlight that the news industry in Britain is at rock-bottom in public esteem, and could face increased restrictions from the government of Prime Minister David Cameron, which appears convinced it has been unable to police itself. The British Broadcasting Corp. has moved into full-bore damage control since it retracted mistaken allegations by its marquee news program...
  • Newt Gingrich: GOPs consummate survivor is back on his feet

    In an election season that already has taken more than its share of unlikely turns, few moments have seemed more improbable than the crowd scene Friday afternoon at a Chick-fil-A along a busy suburban thoroughfare here. At least 400 people jammed the restaurant, leaving those in the back straining to get even a glimpse of a man whose presidential candidacy had been left for dead not five months ago. Against the glassed-in playground stood Newt Gingrich, microphone in hand, promising: If youre with me, I think we will win the most decisive election in modern times, and I think we...
  • Fred Thompson Was Superb Last Night on Hannity and Colmes

    Fred Thompson was superb last night on Fox News in responding to Sean Hannity's very legitimate questions about Obama, his politics, electability, and overall qualifications as President, Commander In Chief. NOTE: Barack Obama's refusal to appear on Fox News despite repeated requests, invitations from Fox News seems as if it might finally come to an end as he is currently scheduled to appear on Fox News Sunday.

    A left-wing activist was hit by a rubber bullet at an anti-separation fence protest in Bil'in on Friday, sustaining moderate-to-serious head wounds. He was evacuated to Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer for treatment. A number of activists threw rocks at security forces during the demonstration. In response, Israel Defense Forces troops and Border Policemen threw stun grenades and fired rubber bullets . . .

    Less than a decade ago, Mr. Bush fought that exact part of the Voting Rights Act, with his appointed secretary of state, Antonio O. Garza Jr., calling the provisions a burdensome and unnecessary federal intrusion into Texas' affairs. "The Bush administration has really done a flip-flop on this," said Edward Blum, a senior fellow at the Center for Equal Opportunity who has studied Texas voting and the Voting Rights Act. "This is not where he was, and this is not the kind of philosophy that then-Governor Bush had when it comes to getting Texas out from under the thumb of...

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - John McTernan, an activist lawyer who fought landmark civil rights and labor cases and defended witnesses summoned by the House Un-American Activities Committee, has died. He was 94. McTernan died March 28 in his sleep at his Santa Monica home, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He argued several times before the U.S. Supreme Court on the constitutionality of government policies during the Cold War such as forcing workers to take loyalty oaths. One of his most important cases came in 1957. The Supreme Court concluded that defendants have the right to know about...

    Let's get real. On Fox So-Called News, former Army Sgt. Tony Robinson was allowed to claim without contradiction that what happened at the prison at Abu Ghraib was no worse than "fraternity hazing." Rush Limbaugh concurs. Let me speak up on behalf of the Kappa Sigs, KAs and even Dekes (where only "minor" branding incidents occurred when George W. Bush was the head Deke at Yale). This is straight from the report of Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba: "Between October and December 2003, at the Abu Ghraib Confinement Facility, numerous acts of sadistic, blatant and wanton criminal abuses were inflicted on...
