    So excited my picture made the front page of the New Paltz Times, I barely noticed the article to go with the photograph, written by Mike Townshend. Thanks to Pam O’Dell of GardinersRight I addressed a tea party crowd on Tax Day last week and the New Paltz Times (or maybe I should say “Slimes”) covering the story, placed me left center with a nice caption: “Raquel Okyay of Wallkill speaks passionately of her position on health care reform at last week’s tax day Tea Party in Gardiner”. When I would later read the article completely, I realized that the...

    One popular sign spotted at Tea Party protests across the country over the last year goes: "It doesn't matter what this sign says. You'll call it racism, anyway!" It's a pithy, perfect rejoinder to the fusillade of attacks that limited-government activists have weathered from their Democratic detractors and a hostile national media. President Obama's allies whispered "racist," "fascist" and "fringe" in the earliest days of the stimulus demonstrations in January and February 2009, when hundreds of first-time protesters turned out on the streets in Washington State, Colorado, Arizona and Kansas. The whispers turned to hysterical screams as hundreds became thousands...

    Eidsmoe reportedly spoke at an Alabama Secession rally, Zielinski said. He covered topics touching on slavery and the Constitution. Eidsmoe’s speech in the rally claimed God ordained slavery, and Jefferson Davis was a much better President of the Confederate States than Abraham Lincoln ever was for the United States. “He’s a pseudo-intellectual racist who belongs to the League of the South and whose writings happen to pop up on neo-Nazi websites,” Zielinski said.

    As time goes on it is increasingly clear that a contrivance designed to defame the Tea Party and drive people from them was the base of charges that Tea Party demonstrators hurled homophobic and racist epithets and spat at Congressmen as they passed by to vote for the horrific ObamaCare Act. A less credulous press would have exposed that immediately. A more honorable press would by now have conceded the error of its reporting. In any event the motive for the slander is clear in today's Rasmussen report: "On major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party...

    It is possible that new, damning details could come to light about Toyota's response to faulty accelerator claims. But absent new revelations - and if we are to judge based solely on what we know now - Toyota is getting a bum rap. The Japanese car maker has been stung by a series of reports of customers experiencing out-of-control speeding. The result has been front-page news stories, a product recall, multiple congressional hearings, a big hit to Toyota's stock price and the threat of multiple lawsuits. To top it off, some are even demanding Toyota offer to buy back vehicles...

    In a surprising, yet reassuring turn of events, Pope Benedict XIV, the head of the Catholic Church has announced that he is willing to excommunicate any and all Catholic Priests who have been rightfully accused of pedophilia while in service to the Catholic Church. "It is my sworn duty to uphold the tenants of the faith which rest securely on the never changing, holy scripture, which speaks succinctly, yet passionately, against sexual sin within the body of Christ." Pope Benedict wrote in a letter addressed to "Fellow Catholics, Christians, and citizens of this great planet." ...

    It is an unfortunate fact of modern American politics that right wing movements are demonized as racists by their political opponents with a lot of help from the media. The most recent such incident was the claim that black congressmen had been called racist terms and spit on by tea party activists before the ObamaCare vote. As Gateway Pundit meticulously demonstrates the charge was utterly false. Andrew Breitbart , in fact, offered payment for proof: "On Thursday of last week Andrew Breitbart at Big Government offered $10,000 to any of the reported victims for proof of a racial attack. No...

I have no time or money to waste on people who slander the economic system that enriches them, who libel the nation that gives them freedom, and who defame the troops who risk everything to defend that freedom.

They won’t submit to Democrats, the media or Beltway GOP capitulationists. They won’t “rebrand.” They won’t sit down. They won’t shut up. Just last weekend, Democratic Rep. Jim Moran attacked the GOP candidates for governor and attorney general in Virginia as the “Taliban ticket.” New York Times columnist Frank Rich decried the right’s “Jacobins” and “Stalinists” who he said joined a “putsch” by supporting Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman instead of ACORN-embracing, Big Laborpromoting, pro-abortion,...

    Conservative Free Republic blog in free speech flap after racial slurs directed at Obama children By Chris Parry, Vancouver SunJuly 11, 2009 11:01 AM This photo of U.S. President Barrack Obama's daughter Malia, wearing a peace-symbol t-shirt touched off a storm of epithet-laced comments on the conservative 'Free Republic' blog "A typical street whore." "A bunch of ghetto thugs." "Ghetto street trash." "Wonder when she will get her first abortion." These are a small selection of some of the racially-charged comments posted to the conservative 'Free Republic' blog Thursday, aimed at U.S. President Barack Obama's 11-year-old daughter Malia after she...

    Take a listen to the following line from Obama's latest press conference: We all know that the President is fond of reading Trig-Truther-in-Chief Andrew Sullivan and the Huffington Post, but his advisors really should have told him that the "Africa is a country" claim was a hoax or a blatant lie. I think she's still inside his melon.

    If Sarah Palin decides to go ahead with a defamation suit against blogger Shannyn Moore, who wrote that the Governor resigned because she was under criminal investigation, it may give others who have been defamed the courage to go after other bloggers who can be accused of "malice" in creating unfounded rumors about them on the Internet. Should Palin sue Moore, it could mean thousands of dollars of legal fees in order to defend herself. It might send a message to other bloggers who can be accused of using "malice" in defaming public figures. (See an explanation below.) Palin's attorney...

    RUMORS WRONG: Agent rebuts circulating allegations cited by Anchorage blogger. The FBI is taking the unusual step of declaring that Gov. Sarah Palin is not under investigation, as Palin herself left for Western Alaska and communicated to the world through her Twitter account. "We are not investigating her," FBI spokesman Eric Gonzalez said on Sunday. "Normally we don't confirm or deny those kind of allegations out there, but by not doing so it just casts her in a very bad light. There is just no truth to those rumors out there in the blogosphere." Palin has ignored requests for an...

    Alaskan Governor and GOP 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin may be nice looking, but she sure wasn’t a very good candidate is the bottom line of Vanity Fair’s 9,920-word profile about her released Tuesday. The comments about her beauty weren't entirely complimentary, either. Vanity Fair writer Todd S. Purdum said her looks probably hurt her as much it helped win voters during the campaign. The brunt of his article, the notion that she was never suited to run nationally, relied heavily on unattributed quotes from McCain campaign staffers who felt she wasn’t up to snuff and refused properly study...

    Slandering Cheney [Guy Benson] The New Yorker's June 22 edition will include an interview with CIA chief Leon Panetta, who suggests that former vice president Dick Cheney is "[almost] wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point." Three reactions: (1) Has a sitting CIA director ever slandered a major American political figure like this before? It's alarming that Panetta evidently felt it appropriate to engage in partisan attacks in the first place. This type of inflammatory statement may be expected in the lefty blogosphere, not passing through the lips of a top intelligence official...

    JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- A Justice Department attorney said U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., should be immune from a defamation lawsuit filed by a former Marine from western Pennsylvania. Murtha Essentially, Murtha's attorney said the lawsuit filed in September by Justin Sharratt, of Canonsburg, should be dismissed for the same reasons that a federal appeals court struck down a similar suit by Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, of Meriden, Conn., last week. The court ruled that Murtha couldn't be sued because he was acting within the scope of his employment when he accused Wuterich's squad of killing innocent civilians "in cold blood"...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that Sergeant Frank Wuterich can’t sue Representative John Murtha (D-Pa.) for slander because “as a member of the ruling class, Congressman Murtha does not have to answer to complaints from persons outside the government.” The court cited the U.S. Constitution’s Article I, Section 6 proviso that “senators’ and representatives’ speech shall not be questioned in any other place” in support of its ruling. “Members of congress are engaged in important business,” Judge Henry Noble wrote for the court. “They are required to take up matters about which their knowledge...

    A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) cannot be sued for defamation or slander stemming from comments he made regarding the death of Iraqi civilians in Haditha in November 2005. A Marine involved in that incident, Sgt. Frank Wuterich, sued Murtha for libel and defamation after the lawmaker said the civilian deaths were “cold-blooded murder and war crimes'' in several public appearances. Wuterich wanted to depose Murtha, and a federal judge initially backed Wuterich. But the Bush Justice Department sided with Murtha, arguing that Murtha was acting within his official duties as a congressman when...
