    Sami Osmakac toyed with the idea of blowing up Tampa Bay bridges or the sheriff’s office. The defense is arguing that Sami suffers from mental illness. The Tampa Tribune reportedL Sami Osmakac toyed with the idea of blowing up the bridges crossing Tampa Bay or detonating bombs at the sheriff’s office and police departments before settling on a plan to plant explosives in Tampa’s Hyde Park party district and then spraying first responders with automatic gunfire, according to recently released court documents. The planned January 2012 attack, Osmakac said in a “martyrdom video,” would be “payback for Sheikh Osama Bin...

    Could a White House spell-off be in the works between President Obama and former Vice President Dan Quayle? In a throwback to the latter's infamous misspelling of the word "potato," Obama accidentally misspelled "respect" while introducing singer Aretha Franklin during a tribute to "Women of Soul" at the White House Thursday. “When Aretha first told us what … R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her,” Obama said, pausing briefly before the audience began laughing, apparently realizing his mistake. “She had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans and women and anyone else who felt marginalized because of what they...

    Islamofascism: An influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries demands that the West make it an international crime to criticize Islam. Then stop making it such an easy target. In its 94-page document on "Islamophobia," the Saudi-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation lists as potential felonies: expressing "ideas that Muslims are inclined to violence" and "Islam is an inherently expansionist religion." [Snip] In its report, the OIC bullies the media, too. It complains they play a "negative role" by propagating "stereotypes and misperceptions about Islam." Specifically, it doesn't like reporting on the "radicalization" of Muslims, arguing that Islam does not radicalize Muslims...

That heinous act was planned and carried out by fundamentalist Muslims who belonged to Al Qaeda, a group few Americans had heard of back then The groups stated goal is to demand “social justice” from the American government. It contends that Americans and their government are discriminating against Muslims. This is an interesting claim...

    As every Constitutional scholar knows, the First Amendment includes a clause that strictly forbids mockery of the President of the United States, depending on who it is, and which party he belongs to. It’s in one of the penumbras of the Constitution, or maybe it’s an emanation. I always get those two mixed up. Thus it became essential for the forces of freedom and democracy to crush an impertinent rodeo clown who dared to put on a mask of our Dear Leader, President Barack Obama, and ask spectators if they would like to seem him get run down by a...

    Barack Obama actually made this claim at a speech in Belfast on Monday, but it seems to be gaining traction overnight. His claim, aimed at both Catholic and Protestant “schools and buildings,” came in prepared remarks rather than an extemporaneous response to a question. The Scottish Catholic Observer quotes the argument accurately: The US President has made an alarming call for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland in spite of the fact that Archbishop Gerhard Müller told Scots that Catholic education was ‘a critical component of the Church.’ President Barack Obama (above), repeated the oft disproved claim that...

    Partisans on both sides have been making claims of a lead in the polls — the Republicans cite the national polls and the Democrats the state. I’m not a partisan or a Romney supporter, but I feel compelled to argue that the poll models are flawed and underestimating Romney’s lead. As far as modeling in these polls, the example of Marist and Mason-Dixon in Florida is illustrative of skewing. Marist tends to report big Obama leads, and M-D has reported decent Romney results. From the Tampa Bay Herald: “Mason-Dixon, which has been polling in Florida for 28 years, uses a...

And when they aren’t doing that, they are calling, well, somewhat tongue in cheek, for a complete halt to sex with Republicans. Maybe it is true about someone putting drugs in Halloween candy. This close to Election Day, it’s getting harder to rank the liberal arguments on a scale of 1-10 (1 being sane and 10 being bonkers.) Perhaps they need the speakers...

I spoke with Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc -- the media company that handles SOS postings and media production. Ward was the one who...

So, they attacked the GOP nominee for his reaction to the U.S. Embassy in Egypt’s statement condemning “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” Was that “appropriate”?...

    We should not forget that John Harris of the Politico, who asked the stupidest and most irrelevant questions of any moderator during the GOP Primary debates, is married to the former head of NARAL in Virginia. We should not forget that Jonathan Allen of the Politico once worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. We should not forget that Andy Barr of the Politico left the Politico to go work for the Democratic National Committee. We should not forget any of this because I do not believe it is any accident that today the Politico has a big story from John Harris...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here are the media numbers. Last night NBC had 5.3 million people watching the convention, which, if you haven't heard, NBC and MSNBC did not televise one ethnic minority speech. They didn't, particularly MSNBC. Whenever Artur Davis or Mia Love, anybody who wasn't white was making a speech, it wasn't covered on MSNBC. Then CBS had 3.3 million viewers. ABC had 2.3 million. The cable numbers will come in this afternoon about four o'clock. I think the total viewership will be about 20 million when it's all said and done, when it's calculated. We're working on getting...

    Huzzah, America, our centuries-old struggle with racism and bigotry may be coming to an end.This news was confirmed by none other than Michael Eric Dyson, a professor of sociology and the author of 18 books on race, racism, racial history, black culture, and black history. Suffice it to say, he knows a lot about prejudice and bigotry.Yet in response to Mitt Romney’s lame joke about not needing a birth certificate to prove he was from Michigan, Dyson proclaimed, to the approval of a collection of sage pundits on MSNBC, that Romney was resorting to “some of the basest, most...

    Beyond parody, and virtually beyond commentary, the following exchange occurred between MSNBC outpatients Martin Bashir and Lawrence O’Donnell. Video and transcript courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon: MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that? LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to...

    When is it ever hilarious that the thought of dozens if not hundreds of black people desperately clinging for life as torrential waters batter their children, mothers or neighbors ever funny? David Chalian, a former political director with ABC News thought it was fair game to use a hate-mongering attack against Mitt Romney and Republicans gathered at the RNC Convention in Tampa, Florida on Wednesday. In his vicious racist attack he said, Romney is, “Happy to throw a party with black people dying.” Chalian, who was recently the Washington Bureau Chief for Yahoo News was fired for his online remarks,...
  • The RNC Media Meltdown: A Hurricane Of Hate!

    The media’s coverage from the first night of the RNC was nothing short of appalling, racist, and so blatantly biased that it rivaled, if not surpassed, any state run propaganda from China. MSNBC cut out every speech by a minority, a Yahoo Bureau News Chief asked “how Republicans could throw a party while black people were drowning”, and Ann Romney – whose speech was whimsically political at best, merely a heartfelt recollection of their lives’ trials and tribulations – was stereotyped a “corporate wife” by Juan Williams; as if dining on an ironing board as a young couple and battling...

    Kenyan Muslims in Mombasa have rioted for the second day in a row after a Shabaab-linked cleric who was recently added to the US's list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists was gunned down. Shabaab supporters rampaged in Kenya's second largest city after Sheikh Aboud Rogo Mohammed was shot and killed as he was driving with his wife on Aug. 25. Shabaab supporters quickly organized and attacked and looted two churches, torched a government vehicle and other cars, and killed one person. The man was "slashed to death," according to The Daily Nation. Police have arrested 12 people for their involvement...
  • Being Chris Matthews

    Chris Matthews makes a very good living accusing other white people of being racist. It’s a strange occupation, but as much as it pains me to admit, Chris Matthews is neither crazy nor stupid. He is wrong a lot. He is cloying and irritating. He is certainly tedious. But he is not crazy or stupid, so he cannot be entirely dismissed. Matthews suffers from an idealized version of history in which rebellious liberals spoke truth to power and ended the Vietnam War. These same heroic souls marched with Martin Luther King. They locked arms and stared down billy clubs and...

    Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam; 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend, according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs, the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah,...
