  • Joy Behar: Maybe Obama would rather talk to me than Netanyahu — ever consider that?

    Michelle Malkin ^ | September 26, 2012 | Doug Powers
    As a bizarre and perpetually confused friend once reminded me, “even a blind squirrel’s broken clock finds a nut twice a day.” And so it was with Joy Behar, who attempted to offer a defense of President Obama’s meeting schedule while at the same time unwittingly pointing out a perceived problem with the priorities: Joy Behar doesn’t like all the criticism President Obama has received for going on The View while refusing to meet with any world leaders at the United Nations meeting in New York City this week. “Obama is being bashed for doing the View instead of meeting...

    Fox News ^ | September 26, 2012 | Robert Thompson
    Fifty years ago today CBS introduced a new TV series that sharply divided American cultural opinion. Critics and intellectuals hated it, and it became for them a symbol of how far television had fallen since the so-called “golden age” of live, New York-based programs in the early days of the medium. Most everybody else felt differently, however. The show became an instant hit of mammoth proportions. It spent its first two seasons at the very top of the Nielsen ratings. At its peak, it was being watched by 60 million viewers per week. As late as 1982, eleven years after...

    The Freehold ^ | September 26, 2012 | Jonathan David Baird
    By any honest measurement Barack Hussein Obama has been a dismal failure as a President. Few if any Presidents have been given as much power in their first term as Obama and done so little. In fact for two years he had an unassailable super majority in congress and still his administration has been unable to do something as simple as craft a budget much less control runaway unemployment, a crippling deficit, and the terrorist overthrow of the middle east. While contemplating how anyone could do much worse than Obama, it came to me: Obama is such a failure that...

    Joe Pistone, the storied FBI agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family as Donnie Brasco, testified yesterday before the Charbonneau Commission in Montreal, QB Canada as reported by Monique Muse for The Gazette. The body is investigating allegations of corruption by the Montreal Mafia and dirty politicians within the construction industry, and Pistone spelled it out: "Organized crime cannot operate without corruption," he was careful to add. "So in these types of situations, who do they need to corrupt? They need to corrupt public officials." Pistone rejected the Mafia myths and propaganda which are perpetuated by groupies and apologists on...

    You’re a new nerd in town. You want to roll some dice, cast some spells, kill some orcs. Or you want to leverage your fandom for good, not evil, in the so-called “real world,” whatever that is. Let it be known, verily and forsooth, that Our Fair City and its environs is a kingdom replete with every variety of nerdery known to man, woman, halfling, and beast. Boston is the undisputed center of the nerdverse — a mothership for dweebs, techies, trekkers, weirdos, and gamers. “Our mainstream is geeky,” said Kevin Harrington, who runs an annual comedy festival called Geek...

    Red State ^ | September 22, 2012 | Dan Spencer
    When even the media is starting to point out that the incumbent president is too busy campaigning for re-election to govern, you know you have a problem. Yet that’s precisely what the Associated Press noticed in a new report this morning. The first line: “It’s awfully quiet at the White House these days.” Sure, when you have a president who spends most of his time on the trail spinning rhetoric and fundraising for his campaign coffers, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue will tend to be “awfully quiet.” This might explain why while our Libyan ambassador is dead and our embassies are under...

    Unable to answer a simple question regarding the size of the national debt during an interview on David Letterman’s talk show, President Obama tried to assure viewers that it isn’t important. “I can’t put my finger on the precise amount,” Obama said. “How about a ‘ballpark’ estimate?” Letterman asked. “Well, I don’t know, but it doesn’t really matter,” the President replied. “You see, mostly this is money we owe ourselves. I mean, Americans owe the debt and Americans own the debt. In effect, paying the debt is like taking money out of your right pocket and putting it into your...
  • Did SNL's 'Romney is racist' sketch go too far?

    The Examiner ^ | September 21, 2012 | Victor Medina
    Comedy has always been a place for taboo subjects, but many are asking if Saturday Night Live went too far with a sketch aired Thursday night in which Gov. Mitt Romney is repeatedly portrayed as a racist. The sketch, which aired during a "SNL Weekend Update Thursday" special on NBC last night, was based on the recent "leaked video" of Gov. Romney stating he will not try to win over the 47% of voters who loyally support President Obama. However, SNL took the premise further, by portraying Romney as secretly racist. At one point in the sketch, Jason Sudekis (who...

    More than 40 percent of adolescent girls, ages 15 to 19, are sexually active, according to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. And some 750,000 teen girls get pregnant every year. So what did ACOG recommend this week to prevent teen pregnancies? Offer under-age girls “long-acting reversible contraception” – intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants. “I absolutely think that teens should be using these methods as first line,” Dr. Lisa Perriera, an ACOG member, an OB/GYN at CaseMedicalCenter in Cleveland, told ABC News. “The important thing for teens to know,” she said, “is that these devices are an on/off...

    President Obama has confirmed that a political career is not in the cards for his better half - though he insists that Michelle has the abilities to take on his job. The Commander-in-Chief called into a D.C. radio show to dish on his recent meet-up with Jay-Z and Beyonce, his views on the World Series and his ever-popular wife - revealing that the first lady does not have any ambitions inside the Beltway. 'She's an incredible person, an incredible talent but politics is not her thing,' Obama said about Michelle on Friday afternoon in an interview on the EZ Street...

    I'm sorry, did I wake you? I know it's been four years since the last time you checked the news to find that a presidential race was in the final weeks, and much has happened since then. I thought it might be a good idea to help you get caught up, since I keep hearing that the fate of the nation rests in the hands of people who can name the winner of American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, but can't name their own Congressman. Please know that I honor your sacrifice in giving up precious time that could...

    The Las Vegas Museum of Law Enforcement and Organized Crime has launched a speaker series, and the first in its scheduled lineup was retired FBI agent Joaquin "Jack" Garcia who spoke yesterday at the old courthouse where Sen. Estes Kefauver held one of his 1950 committee hearings into the racket boys and which now is home to the so-called Mob Museum. Jack Garcia infiltrated the Gambino family in 2002 as Jack Falcone which resulted in the convictions of capo Greg DePalma and his crew, and his experiences are the subject of his memoir Making Jack Falcone which director Stephen Soderbergh...

    . . . the truth is, academia and the educational establishment believe they are allowed to have their heroes - whether it's expressed by teacher's unions celebrating with an image of Che Guevera emblazoned on a t-shirt while marching in protest with communists, or whether it's expressed with giddiness over a Hollywood Lincoln movie that's not even been released yet, that kind of "celebratory" history is just fine and dandy. Am I the only one who sees the double-standards? Perhaps these folks view themselves as so intellectually and morally superior to the rest of us that they view their "celebratory"...

    Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested this morning for leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly bumping a pedestrian with her SUV in Manhattan, according to TMZ. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Lindsay was parking her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel when she allegedly hit the knee of a man in his 30s at low speed early today. The New York Daily News reports the man confronted Lohan after the alleged accident in a busy freight area: “They get out of the car, there’s some interaction with her, her entourage and the guy.”

    No doubt that that paranoid right wing pseudo-documenatry 2016: Obama's America has been a huge success at the box office grossiing some $30 million to date. Last month Courtney covered the film (HERE) and we got a ton of comments - especially from hard core fans of the fans saying how much they loved it and that people stood up and applauded at the end of the film. No doubt the same type of people who stand up and applaud at cross burnings. In reality 2016 is nothing more than a modern day new version of the infamous 1962 TV...
