    At the YouTube link, Vox’s Ezra Klein and CNN’s Brian Stelter discuss the growing consensus among the press that they will no longer cover Trump rallies as they aren't newsworthy. YouTube: Consensus Grows In Meda To Stop Covering Trump's Rallies
  • A Note About Our Coverage Of Donald Trump's 'Campaign'

    07/17/2015 10:01:35 AM PDT · by bryan999 · 53 replies
    After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.
  • ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ puts a narrow focus on Muslims

    Terrorism, by its nature, isn’t confined to a single ethnic group or religion. ISIS or Al Qaeda are undoubtedly a serious threat, but many American communities are more at risk from gang violence, white supremacist groups, or militia movements. Indeed, according to FBI statistics cited in the summit’s report, less than 6 percent of domestic terror attacks are carried out by Muslims.

    Yet Obama,and his "Lying Commentators" on every news outlet has been trying to convince America that if Romney is elected,the economy will collapse.And who could possibly be buying all that "Obama B.S." that Romney is a Bush Clone who will input the exact same policies?

FROM: Randy Evans, Senior Adviser and Martin Baker, National Political Director DATE: March 13, 2012 SUBJECT: An Historical Nomination Process Underway Notwithstanding the conventional wisdom that dominates the news media, Newt Gingrich is well positioned to win the GOP nomination and here’s why. Today’s contests in Alabama, American Samoa, Hawaii, and Mississippi are big, but it’s still early. Louisiana, on March 24th, will actually be “halftime” in the race for the GOP nomination. Heading into Louisiana, states with delegates totaling 1,141 will have decided – just short of the 1,144 needed for the nomination. It...

    President Obama says "we cannot fully know" what led Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to kill 13 people and wound 38 others at Fort Hood, Texas Thursday. Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before the killings, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces the enemy, and opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam. His rampage at Ft. Hood has the markings of an act of Islamic terrorism. But in his weekly address, Obama says, "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing."

    I rise in reluctant opposition to H Res 560, which condemns the Iranian government for its recent actions during the unrest in that country. While I never condone violence, much less the violence that governments are only too willing to mete out to their own citizens, I am always very cautious about “condemning” the actions of governments overseas. As an elected member of the United States House of Representatives, I have always questioned our constitutional authority to sit in judgment of the actions of foreign governments of which we are not representatives. I have always hesitated when my colleagues rush...

    When President Roosevelt addressed Congress after Pearl Harbor, he cited Japan fifteen times in a speech of five hundred words. When President Bush did the same after 9/11, he uttered “Islam” or “Muslim” more sparingly — just eleven times in a speech of three thousand words. And when Senators Obama and McCain spoke at the respective conventions and debates, asking to be entrusted with America’s security, not a single reference to Islam could be found. “Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we can think about,” noted linguist Benjamin Lee Whorf. Based on the language used by Western...

    SYDNEY — Former chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix, here to receive the Sydney Peace Prize, believes the US plans to stay long in Iraq to guarantee the flow of oil supplies and to keep a close eye on neighboring Iran."One fear I would have is that the US has a hidden thought to remain in Iraq," Blix told the Australian radio."One reason why they wanted in was that they felt they must leave Saudi Arabia. After the Gulf War in 1991, they left their troops in Saudi Arabia to protect pipelines,". "And when they felt they could no longer...

    British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has instructed his ministers not to use the word "Muslim" in connection with the recent terrorist incidents in Glasgow and London, the Daily Express reports. The phrase "War on Terror" has also been dropped in an effort to improve community relations with the nation's Islamic community, the paper reported.

    I watched parts of the Democratic presidential debate, then downloaded the transcript. Of all the column fodder it contained, I was particularly taken by two responses of John Edwards that, I believe, fairly represent the Democratic Party's wrongheaded foreign policy worldview. His statements were at the beginning and end of the evening, and served as figurative bookends that nicely frame the Democrats' curious attitude toward this great nation they seek to lead. They tell us all we need to know about these would-be commanders in chief: that we cannot afford to have them anywhere near the Oval Office, especially as...

      FOR COLOMBIA, A CHILL ON HILL By ROBERT D. NOVAK May 10, 2007 -- COLOMBIA'S President Alvaro Uribe re turned to Bogota this week in a state of shock. His three-day visit to Washington to win over Democrats in Congress was described by one U.S. supporter as "catastrophic." Colombian sources said Uribe was stunned by the ferocity of his Democratic opponents, and Vice President Francisco Santos publicly talked about cutting U.S.-Colombian ties. (snip) dictator Hugo Chavez can only exult in Uribe's embarrassment as he builds an anti-U.S. bloc. (snip) A truer portent of the Colombian reaction to the rebuff...

    We published an analysis on “Dollar Myths” in which we criticized spending habits in Washington: "Interestingly, nobody seemed to focus on the fact that there is an unconventional solution to foreigners holding too much of our debt: live within your means and do not issue debt. Such an old fashioned concept would indeed strengthen the dollar. Unfortunately, none of the presidential candidates at either side of the aisle seem to have heard of this notion." We missed that there is indeed a presidential candidate who believes in the old fashioned view to “live within your means.” Our apologies go to...

    Foreclosures in 2006 reached levels not seen since the real-estate crash of the late 1980s, and it doesn’t look like they’re coming down anytime soon. “There is no reason for the foreclosures to actually drop significantly,” said George Roddy, president of Foreclosure Listing Service, which tracks foreclosure postings. About 1,000 properties in Tarrant County were scheduled for auction every month this year, with about 40 percent to 50 percent of them actually sold on the courthouse steps, according to Roddy’s company. Many avoided foreclosure by selling their houses beforehand, reaching agreements with their lenders or filing for bankruptcy protection. Roddy...

    FAITH UNDER FIRE Ten Commandments stunner: Feds lying at Supreme Court Government tells modern visitors it's Bill of Rights being honored Every argument before the U.S. Supreme Court and every opinion the judges deliver comes in the presence of the Ten Commandments, God's law given to Moses on a fire-scorched mountain, and now represented for the United States in the very artwork embedded in the high court structure. In today's world of revisionist history, the proof comes through the work of a California pastor who visited the Supreme Court building recently when he was in Washington and was surprised that...

    Why Darwinism is doomed -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: September 27, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Jonathan Wells, Ph.D. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2006 Harvard evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould wrote in 1977: "Biology took away our status as paragons created in the image of God." Darwinism teaches that we are accidental byproducts of purposeless natural processes that had no need for God, and this anti-religious dogma enjoys a taxpayer-funded monopoly in America's public schools and universities. Teachers who dare to question it openly have in many cases lost their jobs. The issue here is not "evolution" – a broad term that can mean simply...

    Abe Lincoln once posited an interesting conundrum: Q. If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog? A. Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg! It apears that every few months or so a five-legged dog decides to run amok in our country and kill people - often of Jewish extraction - prompting the media to do its best to withhold certain details which might cause the public to jump to certain wildly unreasonable conclusions. Case in point: yesterday a 29 year old man in San Fransisco was arrested on 14 counts...
