    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki got defensive on Monday after being confronted with the comments attributed to Martin Indyk, the American negotiator in the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), in which he went on a rant blaming the Jewish state for the failure of peace talks. The conversation was originally reported by The Washington Free Beacon, which received it from a person who overheard the conversation between Indyk, his wife Gahl Burt, and several members of his staff. The conversation allegedly took place right after he spoke at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP),...
  • Alec Baldwin, Drama Queen

    02/26/2014 4:05:11 AM PST · by Kaslin · 27 replies ^ | February 26, 2014 | Michelle Malkin
    Bad boy-turned-bellyacher Alec Baldwin threw a 5,000-word, seven-page pity party for himself in the entertainment media he says he abhors. Hey, what better way for a Hollywood narcissist to protest the attention-starved shallowness of celebrity life than to wallow in it to the bitter end? The rage-filled actor's bloated face is on the cover of New York magazine this week next to the headline "I Give Up." Inside, his rambling and nutty "as told to" confessional bids adieu to "public life." Baldwin seethes about, well, everything. He's mad that countless reporters and photographers dared to cover his toxic little...

    Old man, we look at your life, and you’re not a lot like we are. And if there’s one thing that average folks don’t like, it’s rich celebrities telling them what’s best. Which is why we’re rolling our eyes at the free world rockin’ Neil Young. Young gave a press conference opposing oilsands development at Massey Hall in Toronto Sunday , prior to starting one of his Honour The Treaties concerts. He said "Canada is trading integrity for money," and that he’s embarrassed as a Canadian. He’s raising money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation to wage legal battles against...

    On Friday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh praised Pat Caddell, the frustrated Democrat who has often spoken out against the political establishment, for his thunderous speech at CPAC on Thursday condemning the Republican consultant class. Caddell accused GOP consultants of caring more about money than winning elections or principles and engaging in acts that could border on racketeering. Limbaugh said Caddell "launched both barrels at CPAC" and let the Republican consultant class "have it" while blowing "the lid off of CPAC" with what Limbaugh described was a message that "the Republican consultant class is taking the party down the...

    The old analogy of conservatives being the last centurions guarding the walls of freedom and civilization, is now officially retired. That our constitutional government has been overthrown is evident in that it's defenders are now viewed as barbarians at the gates, and now it is socialists/ unions/LGBTs/jihadis who are the guardians of "civilization" and "freedom" according to their new twisted definitions. They have made us out to be the barbarians. And we apologize and try to reason with propagandists that we are not barbarians, as though liars cared about the truth. Personally, I no longer see it as a conflict...

I mean, not just what they say and do, but look at them. There’s a difference between just...

She lost radio contact with Itasca, the Coast Guard ship that was serving as her radio contact, and the plane supposedly went down near the tiny atoll of Howland Island.

A reception, you’ll soon hear, they wouldn‘t want to give the nation’s military members.

For example, the former confidants to President Obama made sure to mention that America is “a declining power”...

Ahmadinejad also cast aspersion on the Holocaust and hinted the September 9/11 attacks occurred under dubious circumstances as well.

It’s a fate that has befallen a North Carolina waitress at a pizza restaurant, a Philadelphia Eagles stadium worker and a group of airline workers in recent months. But what if it’s the boss who decides to use Facebook to complain about an employee?

These folks generally have pensions, health insurance, vacations, full-time positions and JOB SECURITY. They also receive compensation commensurate with their duties. All unions are out there for (in modern times) is to line the pockets of corrupt union officials and corrupt politicos. 2. Why keep pushing for government funding of high speed rail?...

    I think there is a chance that there is actually something to this. A study at University College London in the UK has found that conservatives' brains have larger amygdalas than the brains of liberals. Amygdalas are responsible for fear and other "primitive" emotions. At the same time, conservatives' brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate -- the part of the brain responsible for courage and may help to explain why conservatives like to plan based on the worst-case scenario, while liberals tend towards rosier outlooks.Get the whole story at Raw Story I don't know anything about...

Speaking on the morning show on Mega-TV, the largest television station in Greece, Seraphim blamed world Jewry for Greece's financial problems. "Mixing Freemasons with Jewish bankers such as Baron Rothschild and world Zionism, the Metropolite said that there is a conspiracy to enslave Greece and Christian Orthodoxy," JTA reported. He also accused "international Zionism" of trying to destroy the family unit by promoting one-parent families and same-sex marriages. Thirteen minutes...

    The group "No Labels" kicked off its first conference Monday at New York's Columbia University with just one label largely absent: "Republican."The non-partisan initiative with the slogan, "Not Left. Not Right. Forward", is seeking to fill what the American people regularly tell pollsters is the vital center: a non-ideological space where the commitment is to getting things done. And its speakers—who ranged from Republican moderates like ex-Virginia Rep. Tom Davis to liberal Democrats like New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand—sang the praises of cooperation and compromise. But the only Republicans present at Columbia University's modern, square Alfred Lerner Hall seemed...

    At the height of the health care reform debate last fall, Bill Sammon, Fox News' controversial Washington managing editor, sent a memo directing his network's journalists not to use the phrase "public option." Instead, Sammon wrote, Fox's reporters should use "government option" and similar phrases -- wording that a top Republican pollster had recommended in order to turn public opinion against the Democrats' reform efforts.... Two months prior to Sammon's 2009 memo, Republican pollster Frank Luntz appeared on Sean Hannity's August 18 Fox News program. Luntz scolded Hannity for referring to the "public option" and encouraged Hannity to use "government option" instead....

    Those who deal with Orioles designated hitter Luke Scott on a daily basis know the deal: Scott is one of the nicer, happier guys in baseball. He is also one of the most outspoken players about things he believes strongly in. That starts with religion and his Christian beliefs. He is also a huge Second Amendment supporter – and has gone on national TV on multiple occasions about the right to carry guns. And he is a big right-wing conservative. Oftentimes he’ll share his opinions in the clubhouse. He says things matter-of-factly, and those around him have come to accept...

  • Phil Davison, Local GOP Candidate in Ohio, Gives Screeching Stump Speech

    To say that Phil Davison is passionate about the state of the treasurer's office in Stark County, Ohio might be the understatement of the year. The Republican -- "I have been a Republican in times good, and I have been a Republican in times bad!" he declares -- was seeking his party's nomination to be county treasurer and made a somewhat crazed plea for his party's approval this week. Davison, a Minvera, Ohio councilman, lost the nomination to North Canton Finance Director Alex Zumbar,

    China's top-ranking UN diplomat embarked on a drunken rant against the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, telling his boss he'd "never liked" him, and adding for good measure that he didn't like Americans either.The outburst by Sha Zukang at a retreat for top UN officials in the Austrian ski resort of Alpbach left senior UN officials cringing in embarrassment as others tried to convince him to put down the microphone, according to Washington-based Foreign Policy magazine. "I know you never liked me Mr. Secretary-General – well, I never liked you, either," said Mr Sha as Mr Ban looked on, smiling...
