  • Time magazine author totally misrepresents US Constitution

    What a hit piece on the Founding Fathers. I could barely get through three of five pages of Richard Stengel’s article in Time magazine online today. He twists the US Constitution like every good liberal always does. This is nothing new. Democrat and liberal politicians have done this for years. Time to call out the BS again… The framers were not gods and were not infallible. Yes, they gave us, and the world, a blueprint for the protection of democratic freedoms — freedom of speech, assembly, religion — but they also gave us the idea that a black person was...
  • Time Magazine: Constitution Doesn't Limit Government, ObamaCare Constitutional

    Regular readers of Time magazine this week found in their mailbox yet another pile of leftist tripe in the vein of "the Constitution is a living document." This week's cover article by managing editor Richard Stengel is a freak show of anti-Constitutional babble including an assertion that the Constitution was not intended to limit government: "If the Constitution was intended to limit the federal government, it sure doesn’t say so...The truth is, the Constitution massively strengthened the central government of the U.S. for the simple reason that it established one where none had existed before."

    Provocative? Perhaps, but that’s nothing new for Time magazine with a history of taking iconic American symbols and using them to make political statements. On Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Time magazine editor Richard Stengel presented the cover of his new July 4 issue, which features the U.S. Constitution going through a paper shredder and asks does the document still matter. According to Stengel, it does, but not as much anymore. “Yes, of course it still matters but in some ways it matters less than people think,” Stengel said on “Morning Joe.” “People all the time are debating what’s constitutional...

    The news that President Obama will soon start personally sending out real messages through Twitter likely has some of his supporters excited, but Fox News contributor Dana Perino was left wondering how he has time for such activities? She appeared on Fox & Friends and was less than enthused about the prospect of seeing tweets coming directly from Obama. Perino did admit that “inauthentic tweets are really annoying” and that she “unfollows” anyone on Twitter that has such boring, not real messages. Yet she wondered “maybe we should re-examine the roles and responsibilities of the President

It is now time to revisit this very important topic because if recent press reports are true, last year's record number has just increased by another 50%.

    You have to wonder very seriously if these people are insane. The San Diego-based group that is laboring to get circumcision banned in San Francisco has perpetrated a comic book. In it, a superhero named Foreskin Man saves a baby boy from being circumcised by the evil Monster Mohel, a vicious-looking Orthodox Jewish rabbi who could have been drawn by an acolyte of Joseph Goebbels. Indeed, Foreskin Man has a distinctly Hitlerian “Aryan” look to him. It’s crystal clear from the dialogue that the perpetrator of this literary opus intends to depict the Judaic religious view of circumcision as evil...

    Hundreds of religious Jews from all streams were able to happily commemorate the 44th anniversary of the first-ever entry of Israeli soldiers onto the TempleMount. For the first time in the history of Israeli restrictions on Jewish entry to the Temple Mount, the recitation of the Priestly Blessing was permitted there. It happened on Wednesday, Jerusalem Reunification Day, when hundreds of visitors – all of whom immersed in a mikveh (ritual bath) prior to coming and took other precautions required by Jewish Law – were allowed to enter the Temple Mount in groups of 30-40. Among them were several Cohanim...

    Of all the petty annoyances, misdemeanors and felonies of public life, there is none that Barack Obama detests more than to have his words twisted or oversimplified. It is a big part of his frustration with the media; it is a bigger part of his disdain for the talk-show wing of the Republican Party. And so it wasnt hard to imagine smoke jetting from the Presidents ears as Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, willfully misinterpreted Obamas statement about the need to renegotiate Israels borders — in Obamas presence, in the Oval Office on May 20. The President had...

    For Mother's Day, the Time magazine website decided to make a list of the ten worst and best mothers in popular culture. The worst list was pretty standard, but the best list was at times bizarre. For example, the number ten best is... the savage Queen Mother from the Aliens movies? Number eight is....Hester Prynne, the single-mom adulteress of The Scarlet Letter? There's no Mrs. Cleaver or Mrs. Huxtable, but a savage killer? Then there's the number three best mother: Gaia, or Mother Earth. Caryn Brooks wrote: Greek gods and goddesses have their own set of morals that have nothing...

    In a press conference announcing the release of his long form birth certificate, Obama denounced the “silliness,” the “sideshows and carnival barkers” that forced him to release a completely unremarkable document after years of speculation on the issue had metastasized into a political phenomenon he could no longer ignore. “We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do. We’ve got big problems to solve,” the president said. Minutes later, he boarded a helicopter, bound for Chicago where he will interview with Oprah, the queen of daytime TV...

    [snip] Traditionally, the key is the acknowledgment that Jesus is the Son of God, who, in the words of the ancient creed, "for us and for our salvation came down from heaven ... and was made man." In the Evangelical ethos, one either accepts this and goes to heaven or refuses and goes to hell. Bell, a tall, 40-year-old son of a Michigan federal judge, begs to differ. He suggests that the redemptive work of Jesus may be universal — meaning that, as his book's subtitle puts it, "every person who ever lived" could have a place in heaven, whatever...

    "This is one of the most important debates that we can have," President Obama said at the close of his much anticipated speech about the federal-budget deficit. He is absolutely right, although his speech didn't add much to the conversation in terms of specifics. Unlike Republican Congressman Paul Ryan's recent budget plan, Barack Obama's proposed no radical restructurings or curtailments of brontosaurus-size programs like Medicare or Medicaid. Unlike some of the other plans floating about, and there are scads of them, his didn't propose gimmicky new revenue-raising schemes like a national sales tax. Indeed, Obama didn't add much to the...

    NEW YORK – Beck’s departure from Fox News marks the welcome removal of an incendiary talk-show host who reveled in apocalyptic shtick and the politics of incitement, writes John Avlon. Plus, the Fox-Beck divorce. The nightly nervous breakdown will not be televised. Glenn Beck is going off the air on Fox News. It is a remarkable reversal of fortune for a man who one year ago was banking $32 million annually, teaching Americans how to fear-monger for fun and profit. But with his ratings down nearly 50 percent and advertisers abandoning the show, Beck’s apocalyptic shtick has been getting rancid...

    WORLD EDITOR DISPLAYS HIS IGNORANCE OF CHRISTIANITY - According to Time Magazine editor Bobby Ghosh, burning the Koran is “much more inflammatory than burning a Bible” because the Koran comes directly from God and the Bible doesn’t. Appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball, (where else?) Ghosh continued to display his ignorance of Christianity: “The Bible is a book written by men. It is acknowledged by Christians that it is written by men. It’s the story of Jesus.” “If you’re a Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man. It is transcribed, it is directly the word of...

    I think it is. In the aftermath of September 11, we had no choice but to overthrow the Taliban, destroy al Qaeda's training centers and kill and scatter as many al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists as possible. We did that, brilliantly. Bin Laden escaped by the skin of his teeth, but al Qaeda has never recovered from that initial devastation. Since then, for going on nine years, we have pursued a somewhat half-hearted peacekeeping/democracy policy in Afghanistan. The Bush administration was right, I think, not to devote excessive resources to Afghanistan

"Of that 70,000, 30,000 would come from malaria control programs that would have to be scaled back specifically. The other 40,000 is broken out as 24,000 would die because of a lack of support for immunizations and other investments and 16,000 would be because of a lack of skilled attendants at birth," he...

    Today, looking out across a seemingly boundless cosmos filled with an unimaginable variety of exotic objects, it's easy to forget that the Universe we currently admire is the product of a violent event that occurred 13.75 billion years ago. As we know, the leading theory for universal birth is the Big Bang, where everything came from nothing, in a single energetic burst of inexplicable creation. So, if we turn back the clock back 13.75 billion years, what would we see? My instinct would be to say "energy, the Universe was filled with pure, violent energy," but according to some mind-bending...

    There are times where you no longer know what to say. Time Magazine, well known to have a clear liberal bias, announced in May of 2006 that Maummar Gaddafi is "now a good guy." Sure, he rules with an iron fist. Sure, he's a dictator. Sure, President Ronald Reagan called him a "mad dog." But, as Time quotes him: "Bush is saying that America is fighting for the triumph of freedom," Gaddafi said between sips of tea.

Silly as they are, the ideas behind these images can seep into our consciousness and affect the way we think of heaven. For example, it’s commonly believed that we will have no bodies in heaven. That’s only partly true. People in heaven do not have bodies (with rare exceptions such as Jesus and Mary), but that’s a temporary state of affairs....

Black holes are some of the weirdest things in the universe. They occur when mass is packed into a tiny volume, squished to its ultimate density. Though observations suggest black holes are prevalent in the universe, scientists still don't really understand what goes on inside them.

    In fighting against Obamacare repeal this week, Democrats portray their health care law as a money saver, claiming Republicans would add to the deficit by abolishing the legislation. But in their franker moments, the bill's authors admit that "reform" could be something of a time bomb that will cause exploding health care costs down the line. One top Senate aide plainly stated last summer, "This is a coverage bill, not a cost reduction bill." The time-bomb nature of Obamacare was presaged by Mitt Romney's health care bill in Massachusetts, which also expanded health insurance coverage by mandating that all individuals...

TIME, on the other hand, has always flirted with real journalism.  It markets itself as a "mainstream" publication with no political agenda other than reporting the news. Some people still buy into this fluffy muck.  But most others realize that a thin veneer of journalistic objectivity is all that separates them from TIME's true colors.  It is no longer surprising that TIME has a slant.  But what is...

    Everyone knows Barack Obama is in a political fix. The coalition that elected him in 2008 has collapsed, and the independents whose support lifted him to the White House have now abandoned him. What to do? Time magazine's Mark Halperin says Obama has to try all the expected things: "show people what he stands for, fight for what he believes, compromise with Republicans when it's sensible, reshape his circle of advisers and focus on job growth and deficit reduction." But Halperin says succeeding in those efforts will be tough because "they run counter to Obama's instincts, the political realities of...

    More than 500 million people have chosen to follow his vision for the (sometimes) all-day social addiction. "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life." In the process, 2010 offered several opportunities for the public to connect with CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The 26-year-old faced his share of tumult early on, as international opposition surfaced against his company's privacy practices. Looming in the background was another burning question -- did Zuckerberg steal the idea from original CFO Eduardo Saverin? ((See a graphic of the Facebook Playbook: who did what to whom and why.)So, writer Aaron Sorkin...

    The outgoing director of the New York office of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency has angered Jordan after stating it is time for Arab nations to absorb their brethren who are “refugees” from the 1948 war. Andrew Whitley stated that Palestinian refugees must not live in the illusion of achieving the “right to return” and that the Arab countries must search for a place for them in their lands to resettle there. When UNRWA began its operations providing aid and services to the Arabs living in Israel in 1949, there were approximately 700,000 who qualified as “refugees.” Today,...

    Via JWF, my sense/hope is that conservative enthusiasm is already as high as it can go. But in case you’re bummed that most of the wizened Democratic leadership comes from monolithically blue districts that makes them impossible to unseat, rest assured that there is in fact a way to knock them off next week.Break their spirits. Other Democrats are sure to follow Pelosi out of the Capitol. After the GOP lost the House in 2006, 27 Republicans called it quits. But in the case of Pelosi’s Democratic cloakroom, the exodus could be deeper: five of the 20 current committee chairmen...

  • How Is It 'News' for Time to Hype 'Extreme Militias' In the Last Weeks of a Campaign?

    Time magazine's news judgment is truly puzzling. With just weeks to go before a crucial midterm election, their cover story package is ten pages stuffed with “The Secret World of Extreme Militias.” Voters are poised to sweep a pile of Democrats out of office from coast to coast, and they're camped in Zanesville, Ohio with a right-wing militia that claims 300 members as the nation's number one news story? (Katie Couric tweeted on Wednesday that she was eagerly reading it.) Time editor Richard Stengel announced they gave new hire Barton Gellman six months in the field chasing the whisper of...

    New York Times ^ | 04 OCT 10 | By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL
    With insurgents increasingly attacking the American fuel supply convoys that lumber across the Khyber Pass into Afghanistan, the military is pushing aggressively to develop, test and deploy renewable energy to decrease its need to transport fossil fuels. Last week, a Marine company from California arrived in the rugged outback of Helmand Province bearing novel equipment: portable solar panels that fold up into boxes; energy-conserving lights; solar tent shields that provide shade and electricity; solar chargers for computers and communications equipment.

    It's 2 a.m., and the noise from your upstairs neighbor is keeping you awake again. Take solace in the fact that by living above you he may be shortening his life, even if only by a tiny fraction of a second. Nearly a century ago, Albert Einstein suggested that time should move faster the farther away you are from the surface of the Earth. Now scientists have tested this theory at the small distances we travel up and down every day. Using the world's most precise clocks, they confirmed that our wristwatches tick at a slightly different speed when...

    Defense: Some are now saying al-Qaida is weak and we overreacted after 9/11. Al-Qaida is weak because of our reaction and a tool that shows that America and its technology is alive and well. The latest chapter in the mainstream media's revisionist history of the war on terror is the recent claim by Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria that al-Qaida was and "is simply not that deadly a threat," and that after a spectacular success on 9/11 is reduced to recruiting a radicalized young man over the Internet and teaching "him to stuff his underwear with explosives." In saying we've "overreacted," Zakaria...

    Monday, September 13, 2010 Time to Declare War on Israel This article was written by A. Barton Hinkle and published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch on September 10, 2010.The latest issue of Time purports to explain "Why Israel Doesn't Care About Peace." (Hint: Blame the money-grubbing Jews!) There will be earnest efforts to point out why this is nonsense, but they will fall on deaf ears. These days a defense of Israel requires stronger measures. And perhaps nothing could do Israel more good than for the United States to declare war on it. After all, if you want to win the...
