    Let's see: The Arab world is in tumult, with worrying signs that a Libya-style descent into civil war may be happening in Syria, where the stakes are unimaginably higher. Nearby, the warring Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah, may be forming a united front. Closer to home, new leaders are being tapped for the Pentagon and the CIA. The government is fast approaching its legal debt ceiling. Painfully high gasoline prices have put the nation in a sour mood. Tornadoes are wreaking death and destruction across the South. So the leader of the free world summons the media for an important...

    There are some cultures in which telling self-serving lies about your own ancestors would be so shameful as to be inconceivable. Michele Bachmann's culture is apparently not one of these. Bachmann, who's flirting with a presidential run, was in the early-primary state of Iowa last week for the Rediscover God in America conference. Bachmann was born in Iowa, as she told the crowd. But she couldn't leave it at just being an ordinary Iowan: "I'm actually even more than just an Iowan," she told her audience. "I'm a seventh-generation Iowan. Our family goes back to the 1850s, to the first...

    Here we go again -- the politics of personal destruction. Liberal operatives have launched an assault on Congressman Darrell Issa (Republican Congressman) to try to silence him and put an end to the investigations he has started to reveal what the Obama administration has been up to the last two years. Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan of Politico report: Democrats are understandably obsessed with Darrell Issa -- he's built himself up as a one-man investigative machine aimed straight at the Obama presidency. But a handful of liberal political operatives in California -- including a former Hillary Clinton hand - are taking...

    Another young product of Columbia J-school, another typical MSMer . . . Appearing on MSNBC's Daily Rundown today, NBC reporter Domenico Montanaro spoke of "the egregious Lee Atwater." What made the insult particularly . . . notorious is that it was entirely gratuitous, utterly unrelated to the subject at hand. Montanaro was reporting on the fact that Reince Priebus is the youngest RNC Chairman since Atwater. Montanaro first refers simply to "Lee Atwater," but then pauses and rephrases as "the notorious Lee Atwater." So Montanaro went out of his way to swipe at the late Atwater, who at the end...

    There is one commentator whose words should enlighten us on the meaning of Saturday's shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the savage murders that took the lives of, among others, a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl. The person is Giffords herself. In an interview last March, the Arizona Democrat anticipated almost everything being said now and explained why what happened on Saturday is a violation of our national self-image as "a beacon." Our pride, she said, is that "we effect change at the ballot box" and not through "outbursts of violence." _________________________________ "We're on Sarah Palin's targeted list,"...

    EXCERPT- Knowing very well most Americans objected to the "end of life" measure in the new health care legislation due to fears it could eventually give doctors a government financial incentive or even mandate to encourage severely ill patients to make life ending decisions too prematurely, Congressman Blumenauer thumbed his nose to the masses. It must be painfully obvious to Mr. Blumenauer that Americans did not want his end-of-life measure, so the Oregon Congressman decided to run around the will of the people by bureaucratic fiat. Instead, he and his fellow Democrats eventually omitted the measure from the bill only...

The films will premiere at an as-yet unscheduled White campaign event in Austin.

The provision proposed by Brown was almost identical to a provision which was in the Democratic health care bill crafted by Harry Reid. Since such exemption would have applied even to circumstances where the abortion services arose out of a rape, the Democrats played the political...

The Oklahoma City bombing was an Arab/Muslim terrorist attack on the United States, she says. Davis, author of a blockbuster book on the attack, The Third Terrorist, has examined and presented the evidence showing that Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was in fact...
  • Editorial continues 'sedition' theme, along with a good dose of race baiting

    Monday, we looked at a discussion on "The Chris Matthews Show," in which two of the guests accused Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh of coming close to "sedition" in their criticism of the Obama administration. Today, it's "BuzzFlash" editor Mark Karlin (we've talked about him--and in a similar vein--before). His purveyors of "sedition" are the participants in the two gun rights rallies Monday, in and overlooking Washington D.C. At both rallies, the talk was defiant and seditious, threatening -- in the thinnest veiled code words -- a shoot out with federal officials if psychotic objections to the "infringement...
  • The Phantom Tea Party Threat

    hyped and a profound threat to our nation’s security are not surprising. The truth, of course, is that the current robust opposition to the liberal agenda, of which the Tea Party movement is a large part, is neither. And there is no evidence that enthusiastic criticism of Obama administration policies will lead to violence. In fact, the Tea Party movement is a result–not a cause—of the frustration and anger many Americans feel today. The only threat it poses is to the status quo of big government activism. It’s been comical to watch the Left try to discredit the Tea Party...

    American Thinker ^ | April 23, 2010 | Jayna Davis
    Anyone waving a placard or voicing dissent against the Obama administration dare not protest too loudly. President Bill Clinton has reignited the incendiary rhetoric of April 19, 1995. He effectively sealed his second White House bid in 1996 by blaming conservative talk radio for inciting the heartland bomber Timothy McVeigh. Now, fifteen years later, the Democratic playbook promises to claim far more victims. Only this time, hardworking Americans stand in the crosshairs. In a recent CNN interview, the former commander-in-chief sounded a battle cry to the political left, press and pundits alike: Vilify the Tea Party, deeming its membership capable...

    Why is Fox pushing so hard this AM to marginalize dissenting Americans? Hemmer/MacCullum pushing the OK City Bombing. Over the past 15 years I only remember blips about memorial ceremonies. Same with 9-11 memorial services. Now all of a sudden the msm is trying to propagandize the dissent of Today with the Islamofascist terrorist and the McVeigh bombing. Everyone involved with the TPM should voice their outrage at the obvious attempt to slander the TPM.

    A California university president said Wednesday a portion of a contract between a school foundation and Sarah Palin for an upcoming speech was stolen from a campus administrator's office last week. California State University, Stanislaus president Hamid Shirvani said the five-page document was taken from a recycling bin inside the office of Susana Gajic-Bruyea, vice president for university advancement. "Susana threw the pages into her recycling bin in her office some time ago," Shirvani said in a phone interview. "Somebody either broke into her office to get them or it was somebody who had access to her office." Shirvani has...

    ...Beaverton Middle School teacher Jason Levin's group wants to infiltrate the Tea Party to discredit the organization. But since Levin's name has been associated with the "Crash the Tea Party" Web site, he has been harassed by people who say they belong to that group. Levin told KATU-TV that his phone has been ringing around the clock and his answering machine is recording threats...

    Today, in his guise as the Washington Post’s ombudsman, Andrew Alexander posted a discussion about the recent misreporting by the Old Media about the various “incidents” that supposedly occurred between the admittedly raucous tea party protesters and members of Congress in Washington, D.C., during the healthcare fight. But while Alexander finally makes some admissions on how the Old Media dropped the ball on these exaggerated reports, he still missed the point of the whole mess. Alexander starts his report off with an interesting rhetorical style. He writes about incidents as if they actually happened even as he admits later down...

    It's a legal drama with a decent cast. The political jabs against Republicans started early on in the season. Then, a storyline started up with one of the lead characters, played by Christine Baranski, being pursued by a Republican. He sends her Sarah Palin's book. She sends him back that mock Palin book that libs made up. Okay, not bad. <\P> On this week's episode, Baranski sees Palin giving a speech on tv, gets disgusted and turns the tv off. She finally gives in and goes out for dinner with the Republican. She tells him that she can't have a...

    If you want to gauge how important an issue is to the Left, the best indicator is to observe how it reacts when the issue is raised. Last Friday, Ralph Peters (Lt. Col., USA, retired) penned a column for Front Page in which he opined that extending voting rights to eleven million illegal immigrants currently residing in this country would be a disaster for America. In response, Terry Krepel, a member of George Soros’ steno pool Media Matters, penned an outraged response slamming Peters for raising such a ridiculous, inflammatory issue. How dare he! Ralph Peters doesn’t actually need anyone...

    The mercury is running high, all right, and it has nothing to do with the weather. Public displays of political anger have been a staple of the American scene for the last eight months or so, but in recent days a handful directed at members of Congress have gone a bit further than noisy, sign-carrying assembly to window-smashing, spitting, threatening faxes and phone calls, even a cut propane line on a barbecue grill. ..."
