  • Libertarian Candidates Expose Themselves as Anti-Trump Shills for Hillary Clinton

    Breitbart ^ | 4 Aug 2016 | Patrick Howley
    Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson and his running mate William Weld exposed themselves as shills for Democrat Hillary Clinton during an extensive primetime town hall with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Weld defended Hillary Clinton on her private email scandal and played attack dog on Donald Trump. Johnson seemed sleepy, but he answered a question at length about THC amounts in marijuana and another from a young man asking about legalized prostitution. Johnson only lightly and perfunctorily criticized Clinton, instead focusing most of his low-energy attacks on Trump. He also revealed a personal gluten allergy and said that he himself would...
  • Bill Maher admits he tossed his ALL-liberal audience because they were too uptight

    As expected, Bill Maher has now weighed in on the non-troversy, that erupted this week when Jerry Seinfeld bemoaned the culture of political correctness on college campuses – and Maher went a step farther. Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work. The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the...

    “Those who hate Israel hate America,” he continued, as the boos and calls for him to leave the stage got louder. “Those who hate Jews hate Christians. If those in this room will not recognize that, then my heart weeps. If you hate the Jewish people you are not reflecting the teachings of Christ. And the very same people who persecute and murder Christians right now, who crucify Christians, who behead children, are the very same people who target Jews for their faith, for the same reason.” Read more:

    Radio and TV personality Glenn Beck says he has buried the hatchet with fellow conservative talk radio powerhouses Sean Hannity and Mark Levin and that they are coming together to activate their “Wonder Twin powers.” Beck spoke about his relationship with the two rival radio show hosts on his show Thursday, saying that they have discovered they were being fed “lies” about each other to diminish their power. “There is a stupid feud, and the three of us, Sean and Mark and I, have talked about it and we know where it came from and we know who was feeding...

Obama’s signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative:

    Never before have so many been mislead by so much money spent by the so very few. All without the slightest attention to the truth. I’m talking about those who deny proven climate science. Deniers, sometimes aptly called “confusionists,” want to mislead us so our leaders won’t move to battle the scourge of our time. Because if leaders act, profits of the fossil fuel companies and the whole fake universe of climate denial will come crashing down. Climate deniers are gearing up for an event they really fear: the release next week of the fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,...

    before the civil war the city of Qusayr, located in eastern portion of Syria near the Lebanese border, had around 40,000 people, including 7,000 Christians. “In late 2011, the Sunni townsmen came and told us to either join us in anti-regime demonstrations or leave the town. If we didn’t, we would be killed,” Fadul Abu Yohanna Kasouhah, a Christian resident of Qusayr, described to CSI. According to Fadul, the Sunni Islamists in his village used the loudspeakers from the Mosques to name the Christian families by name and told them to leave. Fadul told CSI how his cousin was gunned...

    Wow, Britt Hume and O'reilly sure are upset at Santorum. Fox News is doing irreparable damage TO THEMSELVES - this primary season. The entire REASON Huckabee has a TV show on Fox right now is 100% BECAUSE Fox outraged evangelical supporters in 2008 (not to take away from the fact that Huckabee is very good at what he's doing). Fox THINKS - they will just buy off our affections this time around - but it isn't going to happen. I am utterly DISGUSTED by FoxNews' underhanded, disreputable tactics and believe they should for the interest of not being fraudulant should...

    Several GOP presidential candidates rushed in the last minutes of Tuesday evening’s CNN-sponsored national security debate to address an issue not otherwise mentioned: cybersecurity. During closing remarks Texas Governor Rick Perry, Herman Cain and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich rounded out the evening — which largely focused on Iran, Pakistan and the Patriot Act — by telling debate watchers that they believed cyber attacks were an emerging threat. CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer, and audience questioners, steered clear of the issue of cybersecurity during the evening. In response to conservative columnist Marc Theissen’ question about which foreign policy or national security...

    As we always like to point out: There are no coincidences in Obama world. Via the Boston Globe: Surprise! A girl from Malden asked President Obama a question at Tuesday’s town hall meeting in New Hampshire about the signs outside “saying mean things” about his health care proposal. Eleven-year-old Julia Hall asked: “How do kids know what is true, and why do people want a new system that can — that help more of us?” The question opened the door for the president to respond to what he called an “underlying fear” among the public “that people somehow won’t get...

    Israeli media reports that Hamas took over the first floor of the building that the BBC offices in Gaza last night and fired rockets from there, trapping the journalists above. Despite the fact that their reporters have now escaped the building, the BBC has so far not said anything about this. When I was interviewed on the BBC last week, I commented on the pervasive intimidation of the MSM in Gaza, which is one of the reasons that there were none there when the hostilities broke out. I pointed out that the last journalist resident in Gaza, Alan Johnston, now...

    National Review ^ | 02/11/08 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    Are John McCain’s supporters trying to drive conservatives away from their candidate? Senator McCain is the inevitable Republican presidential nominee. He is headed, though, for a defeat of McGovernite dimensions if he can’t sway conservatives to get behind his candidacy. For their part, conservatives don’t want McCain, but even less do they want to spend the next four-to-eight years saying “President Obama,” let alone reliving history with another President Clinton. In short, there are the makings here for a modus vivendi, however grudging. Yet, McCain’s admirers appear to think belittling the senator’s good-faith opponents is the way to go. Theirs...

The police in Nashua said he was arrested early the morning of Jan. 7. “Mr. Blumenthal’s vehicle was seen traveling at a high rate of speed through our city streets,” said Sgt.

She then talked about breaking glass ceilings, before joking as the pair were hustled out: “If there’s anybody in the audience who wants to learn to iron his own shirt, we can talk about that.” We ask what the heck they were thinking.

In a statement, the Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group said: "Based on the information gathered in this case, it seems clear that a potentially deadly attack has been averted. We applaud the FBI for its efforts and repeat the American Muslim community's condemnation and repudiation of all those who would plan or carry out acts of terror while falsely claiming their actions have religious justification.

The New York Daily News reported Thursday that not only is DeNiro, star of gangster classic "Goodfellas," getting out the vote for Clinton via a recording, but velvet-voiced crooner Tony Bennett also is landing on answering machines in the run-up to the midterm elections. Soon, Paul Newman, also will be heard on the telephone messages supporting the New York Democrat. Termed "robo-calls," a prerecorded message from a well-known person is aimed at inspiring...

    Last week, three US Senators, Florida's Bill Nelson, Connecticut's Thomas Dodd, and Rhode Island's Lincoln Chafee visited with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez in Caracas, to try to assess the deteriorating state of US-Venezuelan relations. The three Senators left their meeting, reciting the need for improved relations, and describing how central was Venezuela's role in supplying oil to America. The identical statements could have been uttered had the three Senators visited the sheikhs and princes in Saudi Arabia, of course. However, other than the many paid shills for Saudi Arabia in the think tanks and Middle East studies institutes in this...

The author of a recent article in the government run media service threatens to report these bloggers in what I can only describe as a threat to use the goverment's new suppresive media law to intimidate and stifle legitimate opposition dialogue.

Mind you what sort of moral stance a bunch of assassins have to be claiming anything to anyone? Their rights to claim were forfeited the moment they decided to start killing innocent peasants to achieve whatever goal they set out to reach. What's more, according to UN reports 1 million...

    During the final summation in last night's vice-presidential debate, John Edwards focused on the new Kerry campaign theme: that a vote for George Bush and Dick Cheney would mean "four more years of the same." And Mr. Cheney, when his turn came, said it was important to re-elect the president so he could keep doing what he has been doing. It was a rare moment of agreement. Like the presidential foreign policy debate that preceded it, the clash of the vice-presidential candidates was 90 minutes of serious talk about the issues. It was also very hard-fought - the contenders managed...
