  • Alexandra Pelosi Debuts New Video, Bill Maher Says It May ‘Make Liberals Go Insane’

    Alexandra Pelosi appeared on Real Time tonight with two purposes: to defend the video she filmed of voters in Mississippi that aired on the show last week, and to air a brand-new video that Bill Maher admitted would probably anger liberals in the same way the aforementioned video angered conservatives. For her new video, Pelosi spoke to African-American welfare recipients in New York. There was far less laughter during this piece than the Mississippi one (which Pelosi pointed out after it played), but there were still some revealing moments contained therein. One of the men lined up outside the welfare...
  • 'Game Change': The truth will vindicate Sarah Palin

    The Baltimore Sun ^ | March 16, 2012 | Mike Nieman
    The movie "Game Change" was designed to depict the narrative from the left about Sarah Palin as being true. The movie was about the narrative. The progressive/liberal left must be terrified of a Sarah Palin resurrection, as they are re-crucifying her with this movie. The truth cannot be stopped and cannot be silenced. For that reason, Sarah Palin will emerge like a stainless steel alloy from the forge of politics. As the American people realize the lies behind the various narratives from the Obama administration, elected and appointed progressive/liberal government officials and delivered by a complicit mainstream media, both the...
  • Totenberg: If GOP Picked New Contender at RNC, 'Elite Media' Would 'Glom Onto' & Savage Him

    On Friday's Inside Washington on selected PBS stations, Charles Krauthammer floated his curiosity about what would happen if the Republicans chose a new candidate for the fall election if Romney or Santorum couldn't get to the magic delegate number. Mark Shields joked about how it would be unfair to pick to someone who hasn't slogged across the country and then made a fat joke: "Chris Christie, have a little ice cream, and come in." There goes svelte Shields again. NPR reporter Nina Totenberg promised the elite media would savage a new Republican candidate and pick apart everything "he" has ever...
  • ‘Game Change’ Subtext: Sarah Palin is a Superstar

    RedState ^ | March 15, 2012 | Don Ladro
    The postmodernists have taught us that the message in the subtext is sometimes the opposite of the message in the text. The subtext of the hysterical attacks on Sarah Palin these last four years is simple: Sarah Palin’s enemies think she is a political superstar, simply head and shoulders above everyone else on the scene. The proper conservative response to an attack, like the HBO fiction, should always include exposing — and celebrating — this subtext. The over-the-top attacks began the day she was selected as John McCain’s running mate and have continued relentlessly ever since. They have even included...
  • Four Questions for Bill Maher ("I’m a pottymouth, not a misogynist")

    JAKE TAPPER: Bill, thanks for doing this. I just wanted to make sure that as I cover this debate about appropriate language and such, I’m not excluding any points you think should be made. BILL MAHER: I don’t really know all the “points,” but as I said on my show last Friday, I’m a pottymouth, not a misogynist. TAPPER: So with all the criticism of Rush Limbaugh for his comments about the Georgetown Law student, conservatives claim that there’s a double standard, with President Obama, Democrats and the media far more tolerant of offensive language when wielded by liberal or...

    James "Whitey" Bulger may be a man of letters. When the FBI searched the fugitive mob boss's former home in South Boston in 1995 agents found a manuscript titled My Life in the Irish Mafia Wars, and when they raided his apartment in Santa Monica, CA last year found another autobiographical piece as reported by Shelley Murphy for The Boston Globe: "federal prosecutors revealed the existence of the two documents for the first time in their report detailing all of the evidence which may be used against Bulger and has been shared with his lawyers as required by law."

    The Lifetime Television Network claims to be for women. Its mission statement claims: Lifetime Networks is a diverse, multi-media company, committed to offering the highest quality entertainment and information programming content that celebrates, entertains and supports women. Through its award-winning public affairs initiatives, the Company also advocates a wide range of issues affecting women and their families. Nowhere in their statement do they mention the well-being of little girls, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that this network would choose to produce an episode of a show called “Dance Moms” in which little girls are basically taught...

    The College Conservative ^ | March 12, 2012 | Amy Lutz
    When I was younger, I loved to read. At one point, I basically devoured a book a day. By the time I was 8 years old, I was flipping through To Kill a Mockingbird. However, despite the plethora of novels I had at my fingertips, I still liked to read “the classics;” books by Shel Silverstein, Carolyn Keene, and Dr. Seuss. For years, The Lorax by Dr. Seuss was at the top of my list of favorite books. The story tells the tale of the “Lorax,” a whimsical, environmentally-conscious creature who speaks out about how increasing industrialization has led to...

    But don’t worry, their demands to purge the airways of Rush “isn’t political.” FCC should clear Limbaugh from airwaves — Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem/CNN Ironically, the misogyny Rush Limbaugh spewed for three days over Sandra Fluke was not much worse than his regular broadcast of sexist, racist and homophobic hate speech: Limbaugh doesn’t just call people names. He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames — and the bigger the lie the more effective — inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for...

    On paper, it was a great week for the left. On paper, Rush Limbaugh swallowed hard and finally did get that piece of humble pie to go down. On paper -- and HBO -- the cool kids, it turns out, aren't finished piling on Sarah Palin. On paper, Newt Gingrich is still in love with the sound of his own voice, Rick Santorum still sees delegate math as one of those things only college snobs care about, Ron Paul is still the crazy uncle you left up in the attic, and what's left of a torn and tattered Mitt Romney...
  • Access to land and water

    While watching Doomsday Preppers last week, I observed one major difference in the various plans, and that was if the plan included access to land and water. Its one thing to stockpile 2 – 3 years of canned goods, food in mylar bags, freeze dried food, have a rainwater collection system, small backyard garden,,,,. Its another thing to have access to several acres of land, able to have chickens, a nice sized garden for a variety of fresh veggies, various types of fruit trees, access to fresh running water and access to land to hunt on. Maybe even have access...

    Davis Guggenheim's recently completed film biography presents an unstintingly glowing portrayal of President Barack Obama. There is, to quote Guggenheim, “no downside to this man save the enmity of his enemies.” “Only one other person in the history of the world has led a comparably exemplary life,” Guggenheim asserted. “Jesus healed the sick. Obama gave us healthcare. Jesus fed the multitudes. Obama has put more people on food stamps than any other president. The parallels between the two men's great works are uncanny.” Guggenheim expressed some anxiety that “like Jesus, Obama may be crucified for his efforts. Every day, right-wing...
  • Concerned, informed citizens get Islamist whitewash, All-American Muslim, off the air

    03/08/2012 7:40:27 PM PST · by forty_years · 6 replies ^ | 3/8/12 | netwmd Staff
    Americans are getting informed about the dangers Islamists pose to civilized societies -- stealth infiltration of Sharia (Islamic "law") into our legal/social system, "honor" killings, homicide bombings, support for terrorism... There are too many apologists for Islamist outrages amongst our university academe, primary and secondary educators, media elite, government officials, etc. But the blogsphere, activist organizations, and concerned citizens have learned about Islam, and are fighting back against political correctness gone mad (though we still have a long way to go). Thanks to the efforts of the Florida Family Association, The Learning Channel has pulled its shameless whitewash of Islam,...
  • Slut: An Insult Reserved for Conservative Women

      Slut: An Insult Reserved for Conservative Women David C. Stolinsky Mar. 8, 2012 The mainstream media and politicians from President Obama on down have been strident in condemning Rush Limbaugh for calling 30-year-old law student Sandra Fluke a “slut.” Fluke testified before Congress that health-insurance policies should be required to cover contraceptive pills and morning-after pills. The latter are considered by many to be a form of abortion. Why do liberals, who incessantly push “safe sex,” expect us to pay for a woman’s unprotected sex? This question was not answered, because it was not asked. Note that if...

    Thy Black Man ^ | March 7, 2012 | Lloyd Marcus
    MILF is an acronym used in pornography for “Mother I’d Like to F—”. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a MILF. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a “dumb tw*t”. Bill Maher joked that Sarah Palin’s Down Syndrome baby was the result of Palin having sex with John Edwards. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a C-word. President Obama phoned Sandra Fluke to find out if she was OK regarding the Limbaugh comment. To be consistent in his concern for women, shouldn’t President Obama give back the million dollar contribution to his super PAC from Bill Maher, a serial vitriolic abuser...

    Bad Newt - Used 30 Minutes of Megan Kelly’s On-air Time To Discuss his GA win and the GOP Primary. Consensus of the Fox panel: “Good grief!! Newt took 30 minutes to make his points!!!” (30 minutes of not talking about Mitt’s Super Tuesday). And what was up with Fox News not running the GA vote totals on the ticker strip? Sarah Palin disclosed to Neil Cavuto that she voted for “the cheerful one.” (Newt) Newt Gingrich picked up 69 additional delegates. His total to date 102 delegates. (By my count, he had 33 going into Super Tuesday and picked...

    Yahoo! News Contributor Network ^ | March 6, 2012 | Mark Whittington
    The Obama administration has made much use of the dust up between Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke to change the birth control mandate from a religious freedom issue to a women's rights issue. But there is one fly in that ointment. The fly's name is Bill Maher, the host of HBO's "Real Time," a million dollar campaign contributor and a misogynist, at least suggested by the Weekly Standard. If Limbaugh calling Fluke a "slut" is an excuse to force the Roman Catholic Church to provide birth control services against its will, what price should be exacted for Maher calling women...

    Though he may be the “most powerful leader in the world,” President Barack Obama’s access to television is strictly controlled by his wife. “Sports is all I’m allowed to watch on TV,” Obama told reporters. “Even then, I’m limited to an hour or two here and there. Watching a whole game is a rare treat. Michelle doesn’t want me to be distracted from my mission.” The President admitted that he chafes under the restriction and occasionally “sneaks an extra peek when Michelle is not around,” but asked that it be kept secret lest “I lose what privileges she allows me...

    If you ever wonder what MSNBC Contributor and Daily Beast columnist Meghan McCain thinks about anything, and care about the answer, you are alone and should find the nearest bridge. If you, like me, read her blog to see just how far someone with no talent can go in this country (as long as they have rich, famous and powerful parents to milk), then read on. I can’t say Meghan “isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer” because she’s, at best, a spoon. Even the butter knife reads her stuff, or hears her talk and thinks, “Oh, dear God.” Yesterday,...
