  • Valerie Jarett Cameo on The Good Wife!!! (Vanity)

    The Good Wife (CBS) | Today | Self
    Sorry folks for this which might seem trivial - just am amazed at the extent that this Administration has blended itself with Hollywood and Pop Culture to mix reality and fiction. I just came home and turned on the TV and happened to have CBS on (love Hawaii-5-O and Blue Bloods) and there was Valerie Jarett on The Good Wife - talking with the one slime lawyer (don't know his name - just remember him from Spy Kids as the creepy kids villian). Just hearing her talk just makes me want to puke - knowing how much wickedness she has...
  • At Dinner Tables, Restless President Finds Intellectual Escape (Hurlicious)

    NY Slimes ^ | 7/14/2014 | JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
    President Obama had just disembarked from Air Force One and was still on the tarmac in Rome when he turned to his host, John R. Phillips, the American ambassador to Italy, with an unexpected request: How about a dinner party tomorrow night? Over the next 24 hours, the startled Mr. Phillips and his wife, the former Obama aide Linda Douglass, scrambled to gather some of Italy’s intellettuali. The architect Renzo Piano flew in from Genoa. The particle physicist Fabiola Gianotti arrived from Geneva. John Elkann, the chairman of Fiat and the owner of the Italian soccer club Juventus, came too,...

    Hot Air ^ | August 14, 2013 | Allahpundit
    Via RCP, I think she’s kidding on the square, exaggerating a bit for effect but otherwise legitimately convinced of what she’s saying. Read her column and you’ll see that it boils down to two points. One: A woman president is more likely to bring peace because women are less warlike or something. (“Thus far,” she says of America’s 44 male presidents, “invasions, bunker-busting mega-bombs and killer drones seem not to be having the desired effect.”) That smells more like lazy stereotyping than hard science, but let’s grant that it’s true on average that women are less warlike. Is Hillary “average”...

    My e-mail: Dear Sir, Your decision to terminate Reporter Larry Conners after he was abused by the IRS for asking probing questions of Mr. Obama is shameful, to say the least. This action proves to millions of viewers and others that the press is so far in the tank for the Obama administration and the Left in general that they don't realize they've grown gills. Hopefully, your station will either go out of business, lose their license or be sold to someone concerned with journalism, not partisanship. Also, I hope that you and anyone else responsible for this decision will...

    The American Spectator's The Obama Watch ^ | May 7, 2013 | Ross Kaminsky
    If ponies rode men and grass ate cows, And cats were chased into holes by the mouse … If summer were spring and the other way round, Then all the world would be upside down. Once in a long while, an event evokes one of my favorite historical images: the British Army band, at Lord Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown which sealed the Americans’ revolutionary victory, playing “The World Turned Upside Down.”In this case, the event is the dramatic change over the past two weeks in the “mainstream” media’s coverage of President Obama. From reporters to opinion writers, from newspapers to...
  • Bob Costas Talks Freeh Report, NCAA, and Paterno

    Onward State ^ | 3-11-13 | Kevin Horne
    “Do you see the Freeh report differently now than you did at the time?” “Oh yes, very much so.” Those words came from Emmy-winning journalist Bob Costas last week in a radio interview with Kevin Slaten of KQQZ in St. Louis. Costas spoke at length to Slaten about his evolving opinion of the Freeh report, Joe Paterno’s legacy, and the Penn State situation as a whole in what is some of the most balanced rhetoric I’ve heard from a national media source about the Sandusky scandal. Costas has been on top of this story from the start, most notably in...
  • Joe Paterno Really Didn't Know

    This excerpt from the Clemente Report is very disturbing. For anyone who refuses to believe that Joe didn't know - I think this story will change their minds. Would anyone blame this Mom, like they blame Joe? Would she be fired? Would she be cast as a horrible, evil person? Should all of her life's good work be erased because of this episode? Was she demonized like Joe has been? And this molestation happened literally right in front of her eyes. Please watch the video, read the Clemente report, THEN please post your comments and let us know what you...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 11/4/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld
    This year the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) has published a new version of the “Four Questions” traditionally recited at the Passover seder. Instead of commemorating the liberation of the Jews from Egypt, the NJDC has chosen to take this opportunity to hail, what they see as, the achievements of President Barack Obama. As Commentary Magazine’s Jonathan Tobin poignantly notes, “One of the most disturbing aspects of modern American Jewish life is the almost obsessive desire of many Jews to universalize every aspect of Jewish belief while downplaying the original meanings of customs and ritual.” Following a video of President...

    These people disgust me. Absolutely disgust me.President or Former President notwithstanding, the United States of America not only publicly bowing in Asian subservience (their culture) earlier this afternoon to a much less powerful nation, but one with one of the worst human rights records on the face of the earth, complete with concentration camps as we speak.Carter arrived today. And did the deed immediately upon arriving at the airport in Pyongyang, North Korea, to a DPRK official.

    Big Hollywood ^ | 1/26/09 | Burt Prelutsky
    When some people questioned how Obama could have sat in that cesspool of a church for a thousand Sundays, Obama said that anyone who would ask such a rude question was obviously a racist, knowing full well that the MSM, aka the amen corner, could be counted on not only to parrot his words, but to clap hands and shout “Hallelujah!” If some of us began to confuse news stories about Obama with his campaign press releases, it’s because they were interchangeable, although the press releases tended to be more restrained and, usually, better written. When Geraldine Ferraro dared to...

    TIME magazine ^ | November 2, 2005
    Excerpt - The two Bills, Clinton and Gates, took the stage this afternoon at the Time Global Health Summit. For two men who spend their lives in the klieg lights, this was a rare opportunity for what could almost pass for a schmooze. TIME managing editor Jim Kelly asked them a wide range of questions, many of them posed in writing by conference attendees. Some of the highlights: [snip] The leadership question: Kelly began to ask Gates what he'd do if he were the leader of the World health organization, but the question elicited some inadvertent laughter, when it sounded...

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | October 16, 2005 | Heather S. Heidelbaugh
    Nearly the entire conservative establishment has determined that Harriet Miers is not sufficiently conservative for the Supreme Court and, thus, unqualified. First, the establishment has issues with her conservative pedigree. With an almost single voice, it has bemoaned the failure of President Bush to select Judge Michael Luttig, who sits on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the most conservative in the nation. But what not a single conservative commentator has yet addressed is whether such an appointment would have the necessary votes to survive an up-or-down vote in the Senate. A candidate such as Mr. Luttig is the...

    Venezuela Today ^ | Dec. 18, 2004 | Gustavo Coronel
    "Our praises are our wages" Shakespeare's "Winter's Tale" Adulators often appear in countries where total political power is in the hands of a strongman. Longing for approval from the master, adulators will do or say whatever it takes. This has happened in Venezuelan history since Boves and Guzman Blanco walked our geography. The people objects of adulation do not have to be particularly distinguished, as long as they have power. They can be louts like the Monagas brothers or Cipriano Castro or Juan Vicente Gomez or Marcos Perez Jimenez, but this poses no problem for the invertebrate members of the...

    Accuracy In Media ^ | June 18, 2003 | Notra Trulock
    ...Now the CNN of the Arab world has fired its general manager, Mohammed Jassem Ali-Ali. Ali-Ali had set up and run the network since its inception in 1996. He had previously worked for Qatar television; Al-Jazeera is based in Qatar, but repeatedly aired exclusive footage provided by Iraqi officials during the war. The firing came after the London Sunday Times reported that Iraqi intelligence agents had successfully penetrated the network and converted it into an "instrument" of the Iraqi regime. Al-Jazeera spokesmen denied any connection between the reports and Ali-Ali’s removal...

    Feminists should welcome the entry of John Edwards, our first official hunk, into the presidential race. This holds the promise, at long last, of a gender equity of sorts. Imagine the first news reports coming out of an Edwards White House. "President Edwards, wearing a blue Armani suit and red Garcia tie, unveiled a new hairstyle today." Women have complained that such superfluous items as dress and appearance have long been staples when reporting on women politicians. There was a time when Hillary Clinton's new hairdo elicited more reaction than her work on that infamous health care plan. And please...
