    The New American ^ | 12/29/15 | William F. Jasper
    Bill Ayers. Remember him?: Unrepentant terrorist, SDS riotmaker, pal and political mentor of young Barack Obama, and putative author/ghostwriter of Obama's famous 1995 memoir, Dreams of My Father. In 2011, Ayers (shown) publicly claimed authorship of Dreams (see video of Ayers here) after Dr. Jack Cashill's forensic literary analysis - in a 2008 article and his more extensive book-length analysis in 2011, Deconstructing Obama had convincingly made the case that Ayers, a talented wordsmith, had written the book for the unskilled Obama to help launch the up-and-coming young comrade's political career. During Obama's 2008 run for the White House, his...
  • DU Fraudster Will Pitt Publicly Corrected by TurboTax for Posting False Hacking 'Scoop'

    NewsBusters ^ | February 6, 2015 | P.J. Gladnick
    Notorious fraudster William Rivers Pitt has posted yet another false "scoop" at the Democratic Underground. No, nothing yet about Karl Rove being indicted. That was guaranteed in his May 2006 "scoop" and we are still waiting 24 business hours for this mythical event to materialize. This time around Pitt posted a "scoop" about TurboTax supposedly being hacked. One little problem; it wasn't true. And a TurboTax spokesperson even posted on Pitt's thread about the truth of the matter due to the misinformation spread on the Web by Pitt's veracity challenged "scoop." One fringe benefit is that Pitt has once again...

William Rivers Pitt, a leftwing editor at TruthOut,  whose foibles have been chronicled in NewsBusters and is probably best known for his journalism "scoop" of predicting the indictment of Karl Rove on May 12, 2006, is back in the spotlight again. While waiting 24 business hours to elapse for the Rove indictment to finally take place, Pitt shocked many at the Democratic Underground by posting an extremely angry attack, What I've learned about the Affordable Care Act, upon Obamacare due to a bad personal...

Ever since Journalist Pitt swore to the high heavens that an indictment of Karl Rove was a done deal, sealed, and would be revealed within 24 business hours, Mr. Pitt has been the laughingstock of the internets. OK, you can stop looking at the picture now and go fetch some eyebleach. BTW, that's a screenshot of the Pittster youtubing for dollars for his little truthout site....

True, a chink had emerged in his armor through the Andyscam scandal, but Pied Piper Pitt had recovered nicely and was back to leading the anti-Bush hatefest at the DUmp. Yes, it was a young, vigorous, 33-year-old William Rivers Pitt back then, a rising star in the ranks of the barking moonbats. And William had his eye set on higher things still: talking headness, punditry, a paid position on...

Head DUmmie Skinner pulled the switchover this past weekend, but some of the children have refused to make the move and are staying behind in the old, mostly vacated house.

Signs saying "JUMP! YOU F***ERS!" and images of guillotines were typical of the DUmmies' violent fantasies. But even though the DUmmies and the OWSies are filled with such anger and hatred, don't you dare accuse them of posing a potential threat! No, the OWSies are non-violent, peaceful protesters, dontcha know. So any preparedness on the banks' part, trying to protect their employees' safety--this HAS to be a...

    When I was a kid, one of my favorite TV shows was the "Thunderbirds," a "Supermarionation" series about the Tracy family and their International Rescue team. There would be trouble somewhere in the world, and, from their secret island base, the IR crew would fire up their jets and rush to the rescue. "Thunderbirds Are GO!" That picture came to my mind when I read this THREAD from Pied Piper Pitt, in which he issues the "Go" order to his DU crew. "DUmmies Are GO!" I think Pitt fancies himself as Jeff Tracy or Scott Tracy, or maybe as...

    Pied Piper Pitt periodically feels a need to pontificate, and Christmas/New Year's is just such an occasion. Pitt bids farewell to this YEAR by bidding farewell to this awful DECADE, in order to a) bash Bush and b) distract attention from Obambi and this Year of Living Changerously. And through it all, Wee Willie manages to say . . . almost nothing. But it does allow him to pontificate from on high . . . atop his barstool at Bukowski's. And it does allow US to have some FUn with the DUmmies, which is our "mission statement" here at...

    There is tension and turmoil in DUmmieland! I know, I know, you're saying, "So what else is new?" But the normal turmoil has spiraled out of control! SOMEBODY SHOOK UP THE ANTS!! They've been at each other's THROATS lately! It's the Obama-PelosiCare bill, of course, that has got them all shook up. The DUmmies have discovered that the devil is in the details, and the details are now becoming known. So the DUmmies have been taking it out on their fellow DEMOCRATS there on DEMOCRATIC Underground, in their usual vitriolic style. TA DA! Peace Piper Pitt rides to the...

WOOOO HOOOO!!!!! Congrats, Will! We here at DUmmie FUnnies are very happy for you and your bride, and we wish you all the best. I'm series. If I could, I would buy you a beer at Bukowski's and raise a toast in your honor. Li'l Beaver would give you a cigar. We may have our political differences--oh, kind of like the difference between...

    This is a short but shocking DUFU edition today. William Rivers Pitt apparently opened up his Trust Fund checkbook and purchased his way into giving a speech at an Eleanor Roosevelt Awards Dinner held by Denver area Democrats. I could post his overlong boring speech which was my original intention but I just couldn't get over his voice. You can't hear him by clicking the pic above but if you go to TRUTHOUT, just scroll down to the video and click on it. If you had ever heard Pitt's voice before his throat started getting eaten away by the...

    Our boy Pitt is BACK, in a big way! In recent weeks, the erstwhile Logorrheal One has gotten off his barstool at Bukowski's and hit the keyboard. The disgraced journalist-wannabe has been pumping out columns for truthoutthewindow, mostly puff pieces kissing the rear end of the Obambi Misadministration (and attacking conservatives, of course). Maybe Will the Shill, reliable party hack that he is, is looking for a paying job. Fuggedabout it, Will! That ship left the harbor on May 12, 2006, when you reported with full assurance that Karl Rove had been indicted. Well, even if it only wins...

    It is May 12. Pied Piper Pitt Day! Let the bells ring out in joy! Gather up your family for the celebrations! Today we honor the man who on May 12, 2006, just 24 business hours ago, broke the big journalistic scoop that Karl Rove had already been indicted.It was shortly after this revelation and arrest of Rove that William Rivers Pitt became the toast of the journalism world. He quickly left Truthout behind to become a regular guest on MSNBC and a respected pundit published far and wide. He could often be spotted in Peter Luger's steakhouse holding...

    It seems like William Rivers Pitt has forgotten his role in perpetrating one of the biggest journalistic frauds (Karl Rove "indictment scoop") of the 21st century. Having conveniently removed that episode from his memory banks, Pitt has now jumped back on his soapbox to lecture conservatives as you can see in his latest DUmmie THREAD, "Idiot Wind." You want some idiot wind, Pitt? Well, this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies is going to blow your own idiot wind right up your butt with your own words. Yes, every single reply will consist entirely of Pied Piper Pitt quotes so...

    It's not Christmas, really, without a visit from that nimble little elf, Wee Willie Pitt. Pitt knows this, of course. He EXPECTS his DUmmieland faithful to be looking forward to such a visit, so the Unusually Reticent One feels compelled to post. (The Formerly Logorrheal One was so quiet this year that voting for him as one of the Top Ten DUmmies of 2008 was something akin to, as one person noted, Cal Ripken getting voted to the All-Star team when he was past his prime.) Pitt's missive is found in this THREAD, "This might be me picking a...

Here is the Logorrheal One waxing inspirational, using many words to say nothing, in this THREAD, simply and solemnly titled, "Tomorrow...". And the Pied Piper's eloquence moves his DUmmieland sycophants to tears! So let us gather round the Sage of Bukowski's and soak up his wisdom, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, reminding you DUmmies that Democrat Voting Day is actually the day AFTER tomorrow, is in the [brackets]: Tomorrow......

    As we've been chronicling, our DUmmie Ants are growing increasingly antsy over the possibility of losing what should be an easy win for them. Thus they are preparing their excuses "just in case"--primarily "election fraud" and "racism." Pied Piper Pitt is warming up the "racism" excuse, as seen in this THREAD, "Counting Our Chickens." Yes, it's the old Pied Piper Pitt essay we've haven't seen in a while: pedantic, prolix, ponderous, pregnant with profound insight into American history (as in Pitt's laughably classic "Third American Empire"). For today's drinking game, the magic word is "The Great Migration." Oh, BTW,...

    It must have been a rough night at Bukowski's the other night. Maybe Kevin Spacey wouldn't give him an autograph. Maybe Ty the Bouncer had to help him off the floor. Whatever the reason, William "Cry me a" Rivers Pitt was in his cups and in a foul mood. At times like that, Bottomless Pitt is wont to get on the internets and vent his spleen. When he does, Pie-eyed Griper Pitt is likely to take it out on his fellow DUmmies. And that, my friends, is one of Wee Willie's TWO entertaining and DUFUable personae. You see, to...

    There was a striking moment during the interregnum last November/December (2000) that has stayed with me ever since. Inside Politics was running 24 hours a day on CNN, you will recall. I was watching one evening, several days into the theft, and there was Judy Woodruff interviewing conservative columnist Bob Novak. The question of the hour was whether or not Al Gore should just quit and go home. On this night, Novak was pointing to a public poll that had been running on the web site. You know these polls: log on to a news site and give your...

They got it from, a leftist propaganda outfit.I wanted to see if even had the story up on their site. I went to their main page, and checked. Nothing. I noticed a search box up at the top.

    Representative William J. Jefferson has always liked to talk about growing up in an impoverished farm community, picking cotton for $3 a day and hitting the books hard enough to win his ticket out — a scholarship to Harvard Law School. But even as Mr. Jefferson built a reputation as one of Louisiana's brightest, most effective leaders, a less flattering view began to emerge, one signified by his nickname in political circles, "Dollar Bill." Early in his career, as a state legislator, he was criticized for enriching his law firm with contracts from state and local agencies. He also ran...

    A strange thing has happened over the course of the past year. Whenever I search the name of either Karl Rove or Patrick Fitzgerald in Google News, another name keeps popping up, JASON LEOPOLD, who appears as the reporter of some amazing (but wildly inaccurate) insider information on the CIA "Leak" case. Often Jason Leopold appears as the SOLE source of information which NO OTHER reporter has been able to unearth. So who is this intrepid reporter that is constantly on top of the CIA "Leak" case ("Leak" in quotations since it is NOT a crime to reveal the...

    Here is the latest blast of Hot Air from DUmmie Temporary SockPu...uh, I mean Pied Piper Pitt. This bloated heat wave emanating from his mouth is pretty much his standard Apocalyptic routine mixed in with a strange feeling of a Swan Song. It is almost as if Pitt is bidding farewell in his current incarnation before Dark Forces conspire to prevent him from fulfilling his "destiny." It is the dark foreboding tone of Pitt's latest overblown treatise that ends up saying really NOTHING that distinguishes this missive from his usual bilge. Is Pitt, perhaps, planning on a trip for...

    Twenty-one Spring days proved that the armed forces of the United States led by the brilliant duo of President George W. Bush, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield , is unmatched in today's world for the ability to gather resources, gather combat men and to attack and deliver victory in short order. Another factor is their ability to coalesce the support of the American people for the Iraq enterprise. However, there are some in the American population who objected and continue to object to the war. Recent polls indicate that about 22-25% of the American public objected and continue to...
