    When Sarah Palin was a little girl, her family crossed the border from Alaska into Canada for the quality health care they couldn't get back home. This was in the 1960s, when her parents boarded a train from rural, small-town Skagway, Alaska, and headed for capable doctors in Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon territory. How do we know this? Here's an excerpt from her speech, delivered last weekend in Calgary and reported by the Associated Press: "I remember my brother, he burned his ankle in some little-kid accident thing," Palin told the audience of 1,200, who paid $150 to...
  • Chris Matthews Agrees: Yeah, There’s Some Racism Involved In Why Israelis Don’t Like Obama

    Keep in mind that he is IN Israel while agreeing with the racism assertion. It’s been a busy night for Matthews. He also let us in on his belief that ’Cheney Is Like Brando In Superman Putting Liz In A Capsule Because His World Is Ending.‘ Gaffenator, the gaffemeister, the gaffeburger. I can’t wait until they try to put him up on a pedestal later in his life. Look at all he has accomplished! I’m getting a tingle up my leg just thinking about it. Chris Matthews: Who’s more popular over here? Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden....

    LONDON, March 5, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Britain’s “surveillance culture” is about to take a step forward with the introduction of “hate registers” for children who use anti-homosexual epithets in and out of school. Late last year, Schools minister Vernon Coaker said that as of September 2010 all schools will be legally required to report all “hate incidents” no matter how small, and keep records on offending children. Serious cases were to be reported to local councils. At the time, the homosexualist group Stonewall welcomed the “proposed duty for schools to record and report all incidents of homophobic bullying.”“Schools will need...
  • Sarah Palin, Tom Tancredo & Teabaggers: Angry Neanderthals

    Sarah Palin was the headline speaker at the recent Tea Party Convention, but I won't risk a migraine by attempting to analyze her drivel. Ya know, what I'm talking about? Tom Tancredo, the former congressman from Colorado, also spoke at the teabagger convention, and his speech is a fair representation of the mindset of the teabaggers. Let's examine a paragraph from that speech in which Tancredo questions the very legitimacy of the 2008 election results: "People who could not spell the word 'vote' or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House - (his) name...

    Anybody inclined to laugh off the current Tea Bag Movement as just a passing fancy involving a few isolated kooks had better guess again. Analyze what was said at the group's recent convention where Sarah Palin regaled her audience along with the series of preceding rallies cheer led by Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others and a disturbing trend surfaces. These Teabaggers hold some discomforting points in common with the Brownshirts of Germany's pre-Third Reich period. Many from the progressive movement in Germany during that period laughed off the appearance of "a funny looking little man with a mustache" along...

    Sarah Palin and The Tea Party movement are making many headlines these days as they fortify their position as the key opposition against President Barack Obama. Make no mistake about it. Sarah Palin is going to run for president in 2012. And, the millions of morons who follow her with every beck and call will vote for her. She'll get a lot of votes. And, she very well could unseat President Obama in 2012. Sarah Palin has now captivated the hearts and minds of conservatives across the country by being the face of the divisive Tea Party movement. She spoke...

    The tea-party movement has no leader. But it does have a face: William Temple of Brunswick, Ga. For months, the amiable middle-aged activist has been criss-crossing America, appearing at tea-party events dressed in his trademark three-cornered hat and Revolutionary garb. When journalists interview him (which is often—his outfit draws them in like a magnet), he presents himself as a human bridge between the founders' era and our own. "We fought the British over a 3 percent tea tax. We might as well bring the British back," he told NPR during a recent protest outside the Capitol. It's a charming act,...

    An unexpected feature of this year's gubernatorial race is the revival of certain political notions identified with early American history. Republican candidate Debra Medina in particular has made nullification a major aspect of her campaign, both in her two debates with U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Gov. Rick Perry and on her Web site, which includes, under the label "Restore Sovereignty," the message that the U.S. Constitution "divides power between the federal and state governments and ultimately reserves final authority for the people themselves. Texas must stop the over reaching federal government and nullify federal mandates in agriculture, energy,...

    Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement “both have far less support in the country at large than a gullible Old Media seems to understand or suggest,” Time magazine senior political analyst Mark Halperin asserted on “The Page” while colleague Joe Klein, on Time’s “Swampland” blog, showed fear of the supposedly impotent coalition as he denigrated her Saturday night convention speech as “anti-intellectual drivel,” scolding as “anti-American” those dumb enough to like her: Those who celebrate Sarah Palin's lack of knowledge as a form of “authenticity” superior to Barack Obama's gloriously American mongrel ethnicity and self-made intellectuality are representatives of...

    Spare a thought, and maybe even a dime, for Kenneth Gladney. In August he and other members of the right-wing St. Louis Tea Party arrived at a town-hall meeting organized by Missouri Democrat Russ Carnahan to lobby against universal healthcare. In the spirit of this fraught summer, a fight broke out, ending in six arrests. Who threw the first punch depends on whom you ask. But who got the worst of it was fairly clear. Gladney was taken to the emergency room with injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face and ended up in a wheelchair. His troubles...

    Some of the country's biggest media subsidizers, including AT&T, P&G and Campbell's, have decided to stop advertising during Glenn Beck's program. Beck, a pretender to the populist throne who has made a name for himself on YouTube through catchy remixes of his crying tirades, recently accused President Barack Obama of racism. So Oakland-based ColorOfChange.org has arranged an advertiser boycott -- since viewer disinterest doesn't affect the bottom line of network or cable news directly. Which leaves Beck shrill and popular among his demographic, but likely losing money for News Corp. investors. Never a good position to be in if your...

    Sickeningly, an effluvium of nostalgia over the debacle concert near the town of Woodstock, New York in August of 1969 is everywhere. It's the big 4-0. We should take this anniversary to remember that the catch phrase of the Woodstock generation eventually became "don't trust anyone over 30." In the case of the white wash of what really happened with the concert in Max Yasgur's field, the warning is fitting because the truth seems to be forgotten for the fluffy propaganda of how wonderful the concert was. The concert is also emblematic of some of the vapid 60's generation --...
  • North Carolina Mall Boots Conservative Kiosk While Liberal Items Sell Freely - Video 7/22/09

    Here is a video report from North Carolina about the Concord Mills Mall in Concord, which is a suburb of Charlotte. The mall has ordered a Conservative Kiosk to vacate the mall because they say the conservative bumper-stickers and other merchandise they sell is "inflammatory." A Letter to the Editor seemed to get the ball rolling on getting the Kiosk kicked out, but the mall apparently has lots of liberal merchandise selling freely throughout the mall. The reporter said they did some checking and found that the owner of the mall has been a frequent contributor to Democrat candidates, including...

    Silicon Valley venture capitalists, who have applauded the Obama administration's science, energy and health care initiatives, are growing increasingly anxious that the president and Congress will subject their industry to both closer scrutiny and higher taxation. Obama's budget plan already signals changes in tax policy. And new fears were raised by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's statement Thursday that advisers to venture capital funds, private equity firms and hedge funds should for the first time be required to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission and file reports to enable the government to assess whether the funds "individually or collectively pose...

    Conservatives put on a spectacular display of scientific ignorance this month in the U.S. Senate. During the debate on the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, which would regulate carbon dioxide by setting a cap on emissions and allowing emitters to trade carbon allowances, most Republican senators questioned the reality of human-caused climate change or ignored the climate threat entirely and repeated the talking point that the bill would raise gasoline and electricity prices. It was as if they had been locked in an isolation booth for the past decade. Let's go to the highlights. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.: "The vast majority...
  • NPR: 'Tennessee Racists Vote for McCain, Elect Republicans to State Legislature'

    Against the odds, GOP candidates in the state of Tennessee experienced a historic win. In addition to delivering the state to John McCain, Republicans won both chambers of the state legislature. And, as the Wall Street Journal reported, "Sen. Lamar Alexander became the first Republican to carry all but one county in his re-election win -- even taking a quarter of Tennessee's black votes." NPR was not so generous to Republicans in its reportage. Given the opportunity to traffic in the 'Republicans as racists' trope or do some honest journalism, well, with NPR involved, you can probably guess which way...

    The anti-American group "Iraq Veterans Against the War" decided that the day after Thanksgiving would be a good time to stage an anti-war protest and street theater in San Francisco's Union Square -- because California's most crowded shopping district on the busiest day of the year would provide the largest audience for their antics. I place "Iraq Veterans Against the War" in quotation marks because it's quite evident to anyone who sees them in action that few of their members are actual veterans, and they only claim to be veterans to give their ridiculous tales the tone of authority. They...

    Adult Magazines Weigh In On Politics BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University's Kinsey Institute has a new exhibit on sex and presidential politics, featuring adult magazines from every presidential election year since 1976. Only two are from the current campaigns, including a profile of Democrat Barack Obama in the Advocate, a gay magazine, and an article on Republican John McCain in Playboy, said Liana Zhou, director of the institute's library and archives. "Will the sexuality become part of the (decision-making) factor?" she said. "You don't know what stays in people's heads when they're behind the voting curtain. What images will you...

    I assume John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential partner in a fit of pique because the Republican money men refused to let him have the stuffed male shirt he really wanted. She added nothing to the ticket that the Republicans didn't already have sewn up, the white trash vote, the demographic that sullies America's name inside and outside its borders yet has such a curious appeal for the right. So why do it? It's possible that Republican men, sexual inadequates that they are, really believe that women will vote for a woman just because she's a woman. They're...

    The nine august justices of the United States Supreme Court — or at least the five conservative Republicans — chose the wrong time to make a sea change in constitutional law, admitting the Second Amendment to our pantheon of civil liberties. By demonstrating how willing they are to toss aside decades of jurisprudence in pursuit of a conservative agenda, they sent a chill into the souls of women all across the nation and resurrected fears that Roe v. Wade is next on the chopping block.
