    The liberal media have become President Obama’s megaphone -- eagerly applauding his every move and repeating his talking points on everything from ObamaCare to his massive spending plans to government takeovers to the rest of statist proclivities. Beyond parroting the White House line on every national and international issue and event, the liberal media hide any story that exposes the many failures of this administration. The liberal media have no intention of truthfully reporting the news. Their goal is to discredit the opposition while dutifully and passionately reciting Obama’s liberal mantra as if it were news -- propagandizing in an...

    President Barack Obama should win another Nobel Peace Prize for orchestrating an Islamic revolution from Jimmy Carter’s Iranian play book of indecisiveness. He has humiliated a Muslim ally who has fought terrorism for decades and has supported U.S. policies in the Middle East. So far, Hosni Mubarak has refused to flee Egypt, but left Cairo for his retreat in Sharm el-Sheikh. While he has apparently resigned as its leader, he above all men is haunted by the ghost of Persia. Egypt was the first nation to offer the Shah refuge when he fled Iran on January 16, 1979. It was...

Most of this is due to her marked beauty and taste for fine things. But her lavish lifestyle may soon come to end as Jordan is showing some signs that it could be the next Egypt or Tunisia.

    Background: Huffington Post reports: "MSNBC has suspended star anchor Keith Olbermann following the news that he had donated to three Democratic candidates this election cycle." NBC policy does not prohibit employees from donating to political candidates -- but MSNBC president Phil Griffin is miffed that Keith didn't get "prior approval' first. Meanwhile, Republicans Joe Scarborough and Pat Buchanan also gave political contributions -- but are not suspended. We've had enough insanity this week -- America doesn't need more with Keith kicked off the air. Sign the petition to MSNBC -- then tell your friends.

    Since National Public Radio fired Juan Williams last week for controversial remarks about Muslims, Fox News pundits have waged war on public broadcasting. They've called for defunding it completely, something conservatives have wanted for decades. Led by Sarah Palin, a chorus of commentators including Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, and Karl Rove are trying to paint public broadcasting as the "mouth of socialism" in a ploy to simultaneously attack NPR and fire up their base a week before Americans head to the polls. In a corporate media landscape where "news" is about little more than partisanship and infotainment, we...

The group also claims that Beyer intimidated members and those who wanted to sign the petition, saying they would be labeled as bigots and their information would be published online.

    In the eyes of those who want to crack down on illegal immigrants, a Fremont case heard by the Nebraska Supreme Court on Thursday is all about banning employers and landlords from hiring and renting to undocumented residents. But attorneys arguing for the city and for citizens who circulated petitions to get the ban on the city ballot focused instead on when a judge can intervene in a contested election. Higher profile differences about local and state involvement in immigration law in Nebraska will have to wait. "I don't think the word 'immigration' came out of my mouth this morning,"...

    Friends, As you may have heard by now, the three Navy Seals who captured Ahmed Hashim Abed (the mastermind of the brutal murder of four American civilians in 2004) were arraigned last week on charges that they mistreated this Al-Qaeda terrorist. Abed’s tactic is part of the terrorist game-plan. Al-Qaeda’s training manual encourages captured terrorists to claim they have been injured by their captors. I believe we should stand up for these Navy SEALs who put their lives on the line for America. Instead of being the target of any prosecution, these brave soldiers deserve our support and praise for...
