  • This Rand Paul interview with CNBC didn't go well

    Rand Paul does a lot of interviews -- a lot. This, from time to time, has gotten him in trouble. Rarely, though, has it gone as poorly as this. Speaking Monday afternoon with CNBC, Paul: 1) Reiterated his contention that vaccines should be voluntary. 2) Said this: "I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines." (Michele Bachmann said something similar during the 2012 presidential campaign. It didn't go over well.) 3) Actually shushed the anchor when he thought she wasn't allowing him to answer her questions.

    Producers have the chance to be rehired – at lower salaries CNN cut or reduced 50 positions across multiple divisions on Thursday, changing roles and reducing positions and salaries across the board, a CNN executive told TheWrap. “There is essentially no head count change,” a network executive wrote in an email. “Fifty positions have been impacted. Roles will [be] changed.” CNN President Jeff Zucker met with newsroom reporters on Thursday to tell them the bad news, an insider told TheWrap. The cuts mainly affect news producers and managers, some of whom will be invited to reapply for new or “updated”...

As a part of a special Easter week discussion on religion, Graham told ABC News' Martha Raddatz that gays could go to heaven if they repent.

    White House science czar Dr. John Holdren wasn’t in the mood to be contradicted on whether global warming was causing “extreme weather.” Holdren described climate scientists whose work contradicts the White House’s global warming claims as outside the “scientific mainstream.” Holdren was asked by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions to cite scientific data that supported claims that droughts and other weather events were being made worse by global warming. Sessions then cited contradicting evidence from climate scientists, including former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer and University of Colorado climate scientist Roger Pielke, Jr. Holdren countered that the likes of Pielke...

    Maybe with the complete and utter failure of Obamacare – an initiative that the mainstream media swallowed hook, line and sinker – the mainstream media will finally vet Obama. We don’t know much about the man. We knew what Bush’s grade point average was at Yale, and that his grade point average was actually higher than that of Secretary of State John Kerry, who ran against Bush in 2004. We know all about Bush’s record in the Texas Air National Guard, including records that are supposed to be confidential, such as how often he made it to roll call. We...

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Someday, cultural historians will look back on the early 21st century and speculate about what killed the credibility of America’s so-called liberal-media elite. They will ask, Were the wounds self-inflicted or the product of a methodical plot? Make no mistake about it. We did this to ourselves. As a card-carrying member of the leftist media near-elite — alas, I’m not nearly rich or famous enough to be regarded as a 100% elitist — it pains me to see my brethren sinking like the sun in the west. But we have nobody to blame but ourselves. We’ve...

Also known for wearing H&M and Target, the First Lady boarded a helicopter on Friday sporting a 'Impressionist Print Draped Dress' from Gap, retailing at $29.99. Her choice of cheaper chain clothing during times of recession makes endears her to a cash-strapped public. Not one to stick to a genre, she is also often spotted in very expensive attire from designers such as Alexander McQueen and Tracy Feith.

LONDON – A report published by a Jewish community organization on Thursday highlights how old anti-Semitic themes to depict Israel and Zionism have become more widespread in mainstream British circles during the past year. Comparisons of Israel and its supporters to Nazi Germany have become increasingly common among the public, and anti-Semitic conspiracy themes are being used more freely in conversation, the “Anti-Semitic Discourse in Britain in 2009” indicated. The 57-page report was published by the Community Security Trust, which monitors anti-...

    It seems that some within the Mainstream Media have been trying to send the American public a clear message, “It is time for you to get over the 9-11 attacks.” A majority of Americans have always seen the attacks of 9-11 as being on par with the attack upon Pearl Harbor since the dual attacks happened within our nation. The members of the Mainstream Media always saw the attacks as the defining moment of the much-hated Bush Presidency. Now that another of President Obama’s teachable moments has blown up in his face, some of the Mainstream Media have sought to...

    The idea that President Obama is anti-business broke into the mainstream this week. It has long been a widely held view on the right that Obama’s rhetorical nods to the free market and American business were little more than that. But as Washington slowly staggered back to work this week following a long July 4 weekend, discussions of Obama’s troubled relationship with the private sector popped up with surprising frequency. Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria wrote Monday that after speaking with numerous corporate executives, most of whom voted for Obama, he found that “all think he is, at his core, anti-business.” Tuesday,...

You saw with the far left Kerry in 2004 how easily we beat them. The tea party is real conservative, but I don't want to lose to the Dems and Obama again either.

    An AP article which has been syndicated throughout the web, making such reputable outlets as CNBC, reports this interesting tidbit: Japan also reduced its holdings of U.S. Treasuries, cutting them by $11.5 billion to $768.8 billion in December, but that amount was still more than China's December total of $755.4 billion. That's interesting, since the AP must know something that the US Treasury does not. Because you see "reducing" and "cutting" seems to imply the official November number of $757.3 billion was higher than the December number of $768.8 billion. Yes the difference was $11.5 billion...

    Bouncing around on the trend-tossed seas of 21st-century book publishing, Mormon scholarship seems to have docked at the granddaddy of all prestigious presses: Oxford University. By all accounts, the unlikely partnership between the oldest university in the English-speaking world and an upstart American faith seems to be working. Mormon writers, particularly historians, get the academic credibility they crave and Oxford sells a lot of books. Two years ago, Oxford University Press published Massacre at Mountain Meadows by Ronald W. Walker, Richard E. Turley Jr. and Glen M. Leonard, three LDS Church scholars. The harrowing account of the 1857 slaughter of...

It is the US Constitution that is the key to all these issues, and protecting the rights of American citizens. Last week we talked about what made us, mainstream.

I figure initially we're going to need volunteers, a LOT of them, since the only way to verify stories is going to be through unrelated volunteer journalists providing the same set of facts for the same story. I can't guess that we're going to have money to pay volunteers for the first year or so. I wouldn't go anywhere else than here to look for...

    Rep. Alcee L.

The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany. The bill also appears to expand the president's emergency power, much as the executive order...

For instance, in a 2006 interview Singer was asked point-blank: “Would you kill a disabled baby?” His response? “Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole.” “Many people find this shocking,” he continued, “yet they support a woman's...

No finer example of Maher's disdain for theism and Judeo-Christian principles occurred on Friday's installment of "Real Time" when he actually declared, "At least half of the [Ten] Commandments are stupid!" This came moments after Maher proudly stated, "If I had a child, the last book I would ever give to teach morality would be the Bible, especially the Old Testament."

"Everyday there are day laborers who walk in and say, 'I want a union,'" said Janice Fine, a labor professor at Rutgers University. "But the road to getting one is almost an impossible journey." The Laborers' International Union announced Thursday that early next year it will begin recruiting day laborers in the construction industry to become full-fledged union...
  • The problem with Islam's Mainstream, Lebanon, failed the test

    The problem with their mainstream - Lebanon, a typical Islamo Arab nation (over 60% Muslim), failed the test to reject Islamo Fascism You never see Christians and Jews becoming pro terror to hit intentionally at innocent civilians, once they suffer loss of lives and pain. Look at Lebanon, supposedly a "moderate" Arab Muslim nation, failed -- so miserably - the test, not only in not realizing who is at fault of dead Lebanese but going as far as to "forgiving" -- all of a sudden-- for Islamic terrorists hijacking their country, destroying it and Huzbollah's use of civilian Lebanese to...

    Media Matters Thanks, Uncle Walter By Jeffrey Lord Published 7/28/2006 12:07:29 AM Walter Cronkite created Fox News. This aspect of Mr. Cronkite's long and distinguished career as a journalist was not mentioned in this week's showing of the PBS series American Masters that saluted the veteran CBS newsman. The show, which is designed to examine "the lives, works, and creative processes of our most outstanding cultural artists," dug deep into Mr. Cronkite's life and career. He was praised (one might even say worshiped!) for his coverage of the Kennedy assassination, political conventions, Vietnam and Watergate. He was cited as a...

    The media is overflowing with stories about the incident in Haditha on November 19, 2005. There are so many stories and so many interviews but there is a problem. Many of the stories and recountings of events are inconsistent and seem ever changing. Take the conflicting stories from Thaer al-Hadithi - the "young Iraqi journalist" and AP's "Iraqi human rights investigator". Al-Hadithi claimed that his "own house was barely 100 yards from the IED explosion." He recounted that the blast shattered his windows. Al-Hadithi claimed he "ran outside in time to see Marines from three other humvees springing from their...

    Although hardly new, by far the most effective name calling tactic currently being employed is to accuse anyone with a value system of being outside of the mainstream. Personally, I consider this not an assault on my character, but an affirmation of it. Many great people have been 'outside the mainstream'. A couple of millennium ago, a man named Christ walked this earth. He was outside of the mainstream, too. In fact, he was so outside of it that he was considered a dire threat to those who were in the mainstream. That fact eventually cost him his life, but...

    This past Monday, CBS, otherwise known as See? BS!, Al-Jazeera West, and the Corrupt Broadcasting System, proved once again that it is nothing but a shameless propaganda tool of the Democrat party, by releasing the results of a poll it rigged... uh... conducted recently showing that President Bush's popularity rating has plummeted to an all-time low of 34 percent. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/02/27/opinion/polls/main1350874.shtml

    ESCONDIDO, CA – Standing with her fellow junior ROTC cadets, Lilia Tellefson, 15, tried not to smile as a seemingly irate Marine Corps drill instructor shouted orders in her face. For the most part, the Sweetwater High School student maintained her composure as the drill instructor inspected her uniform and removed her cap, known as a “cover” in military lingo. But she made a mistake when she put it back on. “Tell me that I have cataracts!” the drill instructor screamed at the girl, the brim of his “smokey bear” hat nearly brushing her forehead. Lilia looked bewildered. “TELL ME...
