Let’s be clear about what the Obama Administration has done in the past few weeks. They have engaged in an attempt to vilify, discredit, and demean the most widely viewed news channel, Fox News. Much of the analysis regarding this unprecedented display of partisanship has been focused around the effects this may have on the Administration’s approval ratings, or whether or not this will actually help the powerful news station attract more viewers (more…)

In the ever-growing series of hypocritical liberal statements that don’t get coverage in the mainstream media, add this comment from Gore Vidal on an edition of Joy Behar’s new Headline News show this week. While discussing how President Obama is “too intelligent” for Americans, Vidal railed against Americans and our “lack of education” adding that we are being laughed at by the rest of the World. Behar and Vidal wax poetic about the brilliance of Obama and how America was “shocked” in comparison to Bush and just can’t handle the beaming light radiating from Obama’s being (I added that last part for dramatic effect – but I’m not exaggerating too far). But that’s only the beginning of the idiocy. (more…)

As the health care debate rages on at Capitol Hill and the Baucus Bill continues its way through the legislative process, the American people are still on hold waiting to see if their coverage will ever improve. The Washington Post and ABC News released their latest poll this week and it shows improving numbers for Democratic health care initiatives. According to the Washington Post/ABC News poll, 57% support a public option being added to the Baucus Bill, while 40% disapprove. This is a 2% increase from last month, but still a 5% decrease from its highest numbers in June. But here begins where the poll numbers become interesting… (more…)
Question: When is a blatently racist comment, not racist? Answer: When its being said by a liberal, of course!
Last Thursday, on The O’Reilly Factor, frequent guest Juan Williams – a moderate liberal who isn’t afraid to “call’em like he sees’em” and liberal radio host Warren Ballantine joined Bill for a discussion about the recent attacks on Rush Limbaugh. The discussion turned to the “Barack the Magic Negro” parody created by Limbaugh. Williams contended the polarizing radio host was taken out of context and pointed out the song was making fun of an article written by a black man with the same title. Once the debate was near completion, Ballantine took a thinly veiled racist shot at Juan Williams, saying, “You can go back to the porch, Juan. You can go back. It’s ok.” Video of the comment after the jump…
Recently Time magazine bought a house in Detroit and started moving in reporters for a year long project to chronicle life in the city of Detroit. Time Inc is calling this, “Assignment Detroit.” They have also started a blog with the hopes that this media attention will shed more light on what I believe to be a national tragedy. Instead of Assignment Detroit, I would have named the project, “The Death and Abandonment of an American City”.
There are plenty of problems in the city and even more blame to go around, but I would like to focus on the tragedy that is the Detroit Public School System. The DPS currently has about 94,000 students enrolled in 194 schools that cover all of the city of Detroit. That number of students is down 63 thousand in the past 6 years from 157 thousand in 2002. This shrinking population has “opened the flood gates” on the already overflowing budget of the school system. In early 2009, Jennifer Granholm appointed Robert Bobb as fiscal manager of DPS. What Bobb has found could be categorized as a combination of criminal, corrupt, shocking and appalling. (more…)

This past Friday, Al Gore was speaking at a conference in Madison, Wisconsin to The Society of Environmental Journalists. During this speech, Al Gore was to take questions from the audience regarding climate change and global warming. Gore, who since 2000 has re-invented himself from politician to leading spokesman for the global warming crowd, has not taken questions regarding his cause in 4 years. Journalist and film-maker Phelim McAleer looked to confront Gore on some inconsistencies in his 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth. It should be noted that Mr. McAleer will be releasing a rebuttal to Gore’s documentary in the near future titled, Not Evil Just Wrong. In the above video, you will notice that after attempting to ask his question, he has his mic cut while trying to submit a follow-up question to the former Vice President. (more…)
