    Comic goes on another tear, vows to vote Cynthia McKinney for president. Roseanne Barr has followed up her Brangelina tirade with a verbal assault on Barack and Michelle Obama, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, DNC Chairman Howard Dean, and Democrats overall. The liberal comedian's latest blog rant also blames Oprah Winfrey's support of Obama for taking away primary votes that would've gone to Sen. Hillary Clinton. Below is Barr's posting in its entirety: democrats want to lose and therefore did not fully vet the candidate they shoved down everyone's throat. I am the first blogger to blog about...

    Ryan Alberti had a pretty good idea what to expect when he signed up for the Web class jointly taught by Eckhart Tolle and Oprah Winfrey. He’d already listened to a CD of Tolle reading his books “The Power of Now” and “Stillness Speaks” and liked his simple, gentle way of speaking. “I think he’s really a genuine guy that has an ability to translate some spiritual things in a very down-to-earth way,” Alberti said. Alberti doesn’t watch Winfrey’s daily TV show, but his wife is a big fan and tells him about it. “Even though I haven’t seen (the...

    Oprah Winfrey may have gone too far in exploiting and distributing the teachings of a questionable New Age writer. On Monday night, Winfrey conducted her weekly Web "event" seminar with New Age writer Eckhart Tolle. His message: "Life is the dancer and you are the dance." Got that? The seminar was No. 7 in a series of 10. On the first 90-minute Webcast with Tolle, Oprah extolled the author’s virtues, calling his best-selling "New Earth" book "one of the most important books of our time," the seminars one of "the most exciting things I’ve ever done." Imagine that Winfrey considers...

    Much hay was made nearly a year ago when Oprah Winfrey announced that she would support — and campaign for — Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama. Her effect in boosting support for Obama in early primary and caucus states like Iowa (which he won), New Hampshire (which he lost) and even South Carolina (which he won) is debatable. After all, according to a national survey of Democrats conducted in December 2007 by ABC News and The Washington Post, 82 percent of respondents claimed Oprah’s endorsement would make no difference in their vote, while 8 percent said it would make them...

    Eckhart Tolle, the New Age guru, who numbers amongst his disciples the wildly influential talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, who, in turn, is herself Barack Obama's most enthusiastic supporter, proclaims that history is at a moment of crisis. According to his theory, if humanity does not collectively achieve a state of "higher consciousness," then the race will soon violently destroy itself and the planet in a final conflagration of "egoic consciousness". It is a little eerie to hear a man who falls so firmly on the left echoing the apocalyptic theories of the religious right, and proposing much the...

    Look for NOW to be setting up picket lines outside Rush's Southern Command, protesting the way Limbaugh has demeaned mature women, writing them off as the "hot-flash cohort." What an outrageous slur! You know, these right-wing men just don't -- What? It wasn't Rush? It was that avatar of elite liberal thought Tina Brown, writing in Newsweek? Never mind. Here's how Brown put it in Hillary and the Invisible Women [emphasis added]:

    Someone should tell Chris Matthews to go pick on someone his own size . . . Matthews enjoyed himself at the expense of a local legislator during last night's MSNBC coverage of the primaries. Kirk Watson [shown in a clip from today's Morning Joe] is a state senator from Texas and an Obama supporter. Matthews cornered Watson at length over his inability to name specific accomplishments by Obama. Credit Kirk for keeping a smile on his face, but there's no denying he was put badly on the spot.

    If any recent day typifies life in this crazy modern world, it was probably this past Tuesday. World financial markets were in a meltdown and the Federal Reserve held an emergency meeting to cut the interest rate a massive three quarters of a point in an attempt to stave off a precipitous stock market drop. President Bush was working with congressional leaders on an economic stimulus package to reduce the likelihood of a recession. Meanwhile the U.S. presidential campaign was in full swing with Hillary and Obama having just ripped each other to shreds at a debate, and Fred Thompson...

Discovery Communications and Winfrey have announced a deal where the Discovery Health network will be turned over to Winfrey next year, becoming the Oprah Winfrey Network. “This is an evolution of what I’ve been able to do every day. I’ll now be able to do that 24 hours a day. I’m thrilled about this opportunity. I’ve been asking myself for several years, what is the NEXT, capital N-E-X-T, after The Oprah Winfrey Show,”said Oprah in a press conference held on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The absence of Oprah Winfrey from the frantic four last days of the New Hampshire primary campaign after her heavy schedule in Iowa backing Sen. Barack Obama may be traced to heavy, unaccustomed post-Iowa abuse of the popular entertainment superstar by women. Winfrey did not publicize it, but her Website was swamped with complaints after she went to Iowa. The principal complaint was that she betrayed women by not supporting Sen. Hillary Clinton. The criticism was described as personal. Several of these critics identified themselves as African-Americans, indicating that gender is more important than race for many...

    Not even three million people live in the U.S. state of Iowa. But on Jan. 3, voters there will determine the fate of those seeking to become America’s next president. The battle has begun in earnest. The United States is a country that likes to explain democracy to other nations. It is also a country that starts wars to bring democracy to the world. It allows the candidates for its highest office, the presidency, to spend a year and a half campaigning, leaving no stone unturned as it delves into their past. Its political mood is gauged on a daily...

    Air America radio host Randi Rhodes unleashed a torrent of what's being called "liberal racism" and accused Oprah Winfrey of "acting" when she stumped for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. On her show last week, Rhodes discussed Oprah's appearances on Obama's behalf, and told listeners: "She was blacker than Obama yesterday . . . Let me tell you something. Everyone who watches Oprah are the whitest people in the world . . . Even the black men who watch Oprah are white women while they watch Oprah . . . "She's like so unbelievably white . . . Why is...

In a 2002 interview for O, the Oprah magazine, the talk show host asked victim Trisha Meili -- known as the "Central Park Jogger" -- why she was running alone in the park at night. At the time, Meili, whose name was withheld, told Winfrey she realized it was "not a...

Provincial co-ordinator of the police units investigating child abuse, superintendent Andre' Neethling, met with the team which included a retired Chicago policeman.

    What is going on with women’s talk shows? On Tuesday, October 2, Whoopi Goldberg told The View’s audience that she would like to “do” the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, along with her husband, Paul Pelosi. On Tuesday, September 25, Oprah Winfrey featured a couple who have an open marriage, along with experts that encourage women to have “friends with benefits” and use pornography. Whoopi’s comments stemmed from an exchange earlier in the show in which she needled Barbara Walters about interviewing “her man,” Paul Newman. The good-natured ribbing quickly descended into dialogue more befitting a...

    Enough with the Uncle Tom Name Calling Black Americans, who love their country, are not separatists and do not view everything through the prism of race are called “Uncle Toms” by black civil rights dinosaurs that refuse to acknowledge black progress. Imagine the absurdity of a sports team winning the championship refusing to accept the trophy. Civil rights pioneers fought a great fight and won. And yet, many of them reject victory and seek to punish contemporary blacks who are prosperously moving forward in their lives thanks to the heroic efforts of these civil rights pioneers.

    Forget the girl of YouTube videos. The real Obama girl is doing her part for the candidate. Talk show host Oprah Winfrey plans to hold a Sept. 8 fundraiser for Democratic hopeful Barack Obama at her palatial estate near Santa Barbara, Calif., according to campaign spokesman Dan Pfeiffer. Obama has raised more than $58 million for his White House bid. Forbes magazine estimates that Winfrey, the Chicago-based host who boasts a lot more, including a magazine, is worth $1.5 billion. Obama already enjoys the support of Hollywood moguls like David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Winfrey's fundraiser is another chance...
