    “Who,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly asked on his program Thursday night, “is running Sandra Fluke?” He explained to viewers that The Factor believes that the controversy surrounding the activist and Georgetown law student has been manufactured in a calculated move to help the Obama administration. The Factor is having some trouble, O’Reilly explained, tracking down who it is, exactly, that has been setting up Fluke’s media appearances. Just last week, he shared, his show called Fluke on her cell phone, inviting her onto the show. She has yet to call them back. “Very unusual,” said O’Reilly. “There was no...

    Sarah Palin made an appearance on Thursday’s Hannity to discuss the million dollar check that Bill Maher — who has made several misogynistic remarks about Palin and others over the course of his career — gave to Barack Obama‘s Super PAC, without comment from President Obama, whom, you’ll recall very recently issued a public condemnation of Rush Limbaugh‘s nasty comments about Sandra Fluke. Palin shared that she’s never seen President Obama as a “man of valor,” and so isn’t surprised that he has “accepted” this “dirty money” while remaining mum about Maher’s comments. She also shared that, while she’s never...

While Obama earlier this week denounced similar comments that radio talk show host made about a college student, Sandra Fluke, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters the president is not going to get involved in the Maher battle. Carney said "language that denigrates women is inappropriate," but it is not the President's...

    Nearly every single Obama biographer and profiler has mentioned the contentious racial climate of Harvard Law School during the time that Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review. Some have even mentioned the speech that Obama gave at a protest where he literally embraced Bell. Yet none, seemingly, bothered to track down and report on the content of the speech itself--or on Bell's radical ideas. A PBS election special in 2008 showed footage of the protest but dubbed over critical portions of Obama's speech in which he endorsed Bell. A selectively edited clip released by Buzzfeed yesterday included...

The group Media Matters acts like a lobbyist but is not registered as one. It operates in the shadows, outside congressional oversight and unaccountable to voters. This makes its collusion with the White House in the heat of a presidential race a serious matter worthy of investigation. Targeting Limbaugh, a staunch Republican, is no coincidence. If the Obama campaign can silence him, it can knock out the party's most powerful voice for firing up...

Obama's job approval in February exceeds the lows seen last summer, when his monthly approval rating dipped to 41% from August through October. That followed a slide from 50% in May after the successful U.S. military mission in Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden. However, despite the recent improvement in his score, it has yet to recover to the level seen at the start of 2011, when 49% approved and 43% disapproved. Apart from...

    (Week of 3/3/2012) The President’s approval rating has settled into the mid-forties, continuing the improvement in his ratings since late summer. This week, 43% approve of the way the President is handling his job, and 51% disapprove.The President continues to lead in head–to–head matchups with his Republican opponents. One of his strengths remains perceptions of his intelligence: 59% of the public calls Obama "intelligent." In contrast, 40% say that about former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and 27% use that term to describe former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.
  • Higgins: Holmes’ column on guns shows ignorance

    You recently editorialized in response to an article focusing on rising gun sales in America (Gun shops find warm welcome in Natick: Feb. 29 Metrowest Daily News.)I would like to take this opportunity to respond to Rick Holmes (“Guns and paranoia,” March 5):. My first reaction to your opinion was a sense of embarrassment for you as a journalist. I simply cannot imagine a “journalist” who could be more ignorant of real reasons American citizens might choose to exercise their Constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms. The most glaring example of this shortcoming on your part would be the...
  • Liberal hate talker Randi Rhodes: 'Cut off' conservative women's ovaries

    3 4 0 Submit 0 reddit Print Email On Wednesday, liberal hate talker Randi Rhodes went ballistic, claiming that conservative women don't deserve to have ovaries. “You know, these women, somebody really needs to go repossess their ovaries," Rhodes said. "Really, truly, they have no right to them. They are fabulous, little organs and they have absolutely no right to be estrogen-bearing beings. Okay? Just cut ‘em off, let ‘em go through the hot flashes, let ‘em just sit there and complain about hormone therapy, okay? Just take the ovaries and get it over with. Because they don’t deserve to...
  • Obama’s latest campaign promise: weapons for you IF you won’t attack until after reelection

    We know politics is the “art” of give and take, but the report out of Israel about President Barack Obama’s promise to that country is as blatant a political payoff as we’ve heard for a while. And it’s behind closed doors, of course. . . President Make-A-Deal has a principled objection to arming Israel with weapons to use against Iran unless the Israelis agree not to use them until after he is reelected. Gee, why would that be a condition? . . .

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner added to Thursday's GOP bashing of President Barack Obama's efforts to block a Keystone XL amendment to the Senate transportation bill. Citing POLITICO’s reporting that the president is personally rallying Democratic opposition to Sen. John Hoeven’s (R-N.D.) pro-Keystone amendment, McConnell said he was shocked to learn that Obama is trying to thwart “the biggest private-sector job-creation projection in our country.” Read more:
  • US offered Israel advanced weaponry in exchange for delaying Iran attack (until after election)

    WASHINGTON -- The US offered to give Israel advanced weaponry -- including bunker-busting bombs and refueling planes -- in exchange for Israel's agreement not to attack Iranian nuclear sites, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported Thursday. President Obama reportedly made the offer during Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington this week. Under the proposed deal, Israel would not attack Iran until 2013, after US elections in November this year. The newspaper cited unnamed Western diplomatic and intelligence sources. Netanyahu said Monday that sanctions against Iran had not worked, adding that "none of us can afford to wait much longer" in...
  • Obama Harvard prof: 'Abolish white race as social category'

    Derrick Bell, the late Harvard Law professor now under a microscope for his early association with President Obama, endorsed a controversial magazine whose official motto is “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.” Bell signed a credo calling for the abolishment of “the white race as a social category – in other words, eradicate white supremacy entirely.” He has a long history of racially divisive remarks. He was among the early critics of the June 1991 nomination of Thomas to the Supreme Court, stating, “To place a person who looks black and who, in conservative terms, thinks white, is an...
  • Don't Pin Your Hopes On A Brokered Convention Saving the Day

    I've noticed a lot of talk and a lot of hope being pinned on a brokered convention as possibly our last best hope to keep Romney from being nominated. My advice: don't bet on it. Oh sure, Romney might very well be denied enough delegates to ensure the nomination before the convention (all it probably takes is Newt or Santorum dropping out and endorsing the other) but I fail to see the possibility of him not being nominated in Tampa in such a scenario. Based on both his hard bound and total delegate lead, it seems very likely that he...
  • The American Left and the Erosion of Public Discourse

    American Thinker ^ | 3/8/12 | Steve McCann
    Much has been made of the precipitous decline in the level of discourse in the United States. Many attribute this to the coarsening of the language and the ever-widening gulf between the various factions in the political spectrum. However, these factors are a symptom of a current underlying and foundational dilemma: the inability of not only the general public, but nearly all of the so-called societal leaders and opinion-makers to generate an original thought, as well as a stubborn refusal to use reason and logic when confronted with irrefutable facts and arguments. These traits can be explained, insofar as the...
