  • 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...

    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...

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.

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...

    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...

    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...

      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...

    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...

The story is cute and inspiring, but what really stuck with me about this movie was the mother’s story. She hates her life. She is tired of struggling, wondering if they can catch up on the back rent and the IRS payments, working double shifts and trying...

The movie is based on a poorly researched book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and it was criticized at the time of its publication by Howard Kurtz, then a media reporter for the Washington Post, and the New York Times for its overreliance on unsourced "deep background" interviews that were difficult to verify.

What aggravates me the most about this is the greed and audacity of the NAZI left...................yes. that's EXACTLY what I called them. The Democratic party has had all but ONE major network in their pockets for YEARS. But there is still that ONE out there to speak for the "other side", isn't there? And you people...

    For Freedom – Galatians 5:1 ^ | February 13, 2012 | Michael D. Day
    Last night, before going to bed, I took a peek at the Grammys just in time to see Glen Campbell performing Rhinestone Cowboy. They announced that although he suffers from Alzheimer’s, he finished another album last year and is currently doing a farewell tour. His performance was exhilarating, with all the celebration of a victory lap. He kept pointing his mike at the audience as they sang along with him, blurring the difference between those on stage and those no longer seated in the audience. Everyone there seemed truly connected, more like a party than a performance. Glen showed no...

    While GLAAD is super protected by the media, both liberal and conservative, Christians, in general, are experiencing a renewed full-out onslaught against their faith, pre presidential election. As usual, the faith of those running for the highest office is being scrutinized more than ever, first by Republicans. We never hear much concern about a Dem's faith, because faith is not much of an an issue to Dems. President Obama's religious bona fides came into question, only because his mentor/minister was from a planet even beyond Louis Farrakhan's Mother Ship. Like, who ever knew that Joe Biden is the first Catholic...

    Julianne Moore, who does not so much portray as she caricatures former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in an upcoming HBO documentary "Game Change," said about Palin's role in the 2008 election something very revealing about her. Moore pronounced herself terrified of Palin, according to the Washington Examiner. Her presence on the ticket might well have swung the election to Sen. John McCain. And yet Moore does not think Palin was qualified to be vice president. Moore could not help but be impressed with Palin. She pronounced her attractive and relatable. But Moore is also shocked at the showmanship aspect to...

    Andrew Breitbart, the founder of popular conservative blogs Big Government, Big Hollywood, and many others was arguably the boldest speaker at the CPAC convention last week, and it was hard to miss the fact that he is cocked and ready for a fight . In fact, his own words, " F*** you - war." Breitbart released an explosive trailer for the upcoming project he is working on:

    Debbie Squires of the Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association speaks to the House Education Committee. "Educators go through education for a reason. They are the people who know best about how to serve children. That is not necessarily true about an individual resident. Not saying that they don't want the best for their children, but they may not know what actually is best from an education standpoint."

    Mob Wives reality star Karen Gravano is releasing her memoirs Mob Daughter on Valentine's Day, and the families of victims murdered by her father ex-Gambino underboss Sammy the Bull are apoplectic as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "My brother was killed by Sammy, then he was killed again when he wrote his book and now he's being killed a third time in her book," said Roseanne Massa, whose brother Michael DeBatt was shot dead in 1987 on Salvatore Gravano's orders. "Having our family members killed over and over again is not a way to hold to our...

    Hollywood actor and producer Allen Covert told The Daily Caller that he would “without a doubt” support Sarah Palin if she was a candidate for president. The actor, who is best known for his collaborations with Adam Sandler, said that he would “support whoever is running” as a Republican for president, but really would have loved to see Palin run. “I actually knew who she was when John McCain picked her, and I was very happy about that,” said Covert. He recalled that his immediate reaction to McCain’s choice was: “Oh good, he’s listening to us.” Covert was at the...

    The Hill ^ | February 7, 2012 | Kris Kitto
    2012 could have looked much different for Sarah Palin. Had the former Alaska governor entered the GOP presidential race, she likely would have been winding her “One Nation” bus tour through the primary states, antagonizing her opponents with quips about being the only candidate not afraid to “go rogue” or rely on her Mama Grizzly instincts. Instead, she has the heavily marketed HBO movie “Game Change” — which appears to scrutinize her role in the 2008 presidential contest — to look forward to. Palin still lands big gigs: She’s billed as the closing speaker at this year’s Conservative Political Action...

    Policy Mic ^ | February 7, 2012 | Brian Tam, Fox News Intern
    Since her vice presidential loss in 2008, Sarah Palin has not nearly as invested in national horse race politics. She resigned as Alaska's governor in her first term in July 2009, and decided not to run in the current GOP presidential race. She has not fully endorsed any of the candidates, but has shown support for Newt Gingrich on numerous counts. Palin said she would vote for the former House Speaker in the South Carolina primary. And recently, Palin said Gingrich was being unfairly attacked by liberals and progressives and not given the opportunity to share the spotlight with other...
