  • Concha: Palin Wise to Join Political Media Stars in Self-Branding Biz

    Mediaite ^ | July 28, 2014 | Joe Concha
    As the old saying goes: “The fastest way to disappointment is to depend on other people.” That saying is now becoming prevalent in the media world as well, and we largely have the New York Yankees, Arianna Huffington and Glenn Beck to thank for it. Huh? Let me explain… As reported here on Mediaite over the weekend, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has launched her own eponymous channel for $9.95 per month or $99.95 per year on a new venture called TAPP (which stands for TV App). Her elevator pitch is simple: “Tired of media filters? Well, so am I”....

    A newspaper editor was fired after comparing gays to Nazis. Now he claims his First Amendment rights to write stupid things were violated.In April, the goateed editor of the Jasper County, Iowa Newton Daily News, Bob Eschliman, took to his personal blog to talk about Jesus and compare homosexuals to the Gestapo, as one does. When he was then fired, he felt as though he was under attack for his personal choice to live as he pleases — according to his interpretation of the Bible — and presumably saw no irony in that whatsoever. His incendiary post was promptly deleted...

    White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rightssays the LA Times Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks.. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama's move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading...

    Hamas has infiltrated the United States. In a video shot by a United West cameraman in downtown Miami, FL across the street from the Israeli consulate, protesters shouted ‘We are Hamas’. Throughout this video, the cameraman had to ward off protesters by telling them they would go to jail if he was touched. When watching the video, it’s obvious the honorary Hamas members wanted desperately to assault the cameraman. At one point, one protester appeared ready to stab the cameraman with a pen.Take note at the 5:00 mark to a slogan one honorary Hamas member begins chanting: ‘From the River...

    Private buyers competed with ShopRite food cards for guns at a Baltimore City gun turn in "buy back" on Saturday, the 26th of July.    That may be one reason that this event only collected half as many guns as last year's event did.  231 guns were turned in this year, 460 last year.  The term "buy back" is a bit of propaganda, because the people buying the guns never owned them in the first place.   From baltimoresun.com: Several men holding signs that said "$$ Cash for Guns" stood outside the event, trying to persuade people to sell their guns...

There was a guy who had taken on the role of the head of community security, let's call him "Mr.Zimmerman" for convenience sake.  Mr. Zimmerman purposes to coordinate and spearhead an effort to methodically go through the entire neighborhood and look for suspicious activity, unlocked doors, improper security lighting, unsavory characters malingering - and to act as the first responder to possible criminal activity.  While he is doing this, he leaves the back of his home completely...

He views crises like the destruction of Malaysian Airline flight 17 over the Ukraine like a college professor: through the confining prism of legal procedures and restraints – that is, something akin to a homicide crime scene investigation.  Well, let me be clear about another thing: I'm not interested in playing crime scene investigator with our national security.

    If you think the hate filled rallies organized by Islamist terrorist only happen in the Middle East or Europe think again. Just last week, Sharia driven Hamas sympathizers have taken to America’s streets. In Miami they chanted “We are Hamas” and “Death to Jews.” To make certain that their message was as unambiguous as possible they gathered one block from the Israeli consulate. Sponsored by such groups as the Al-Awda Coalition, CAIR and the National Lawyers Guild, the demonstrators used the subtle but chilling chant “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” meaning their aim is the...

As I got older, things became more complicated.  Today I read about Jews of my generation who question their loyalty to Israel, who, in fact, disclaim Israel as their birthright, as if it were something that could be disclaimed. Certainly, the images of dead Palestinian children can make anyone with a shred of human decency’s heart break.  I...

    Earlier this month, TLC brought back "Sister Wives," a reality show featuring the Utah-based polygamist Brown family of four wives and 17 children, for another season. Since last season, the Browns struck down a major piece of state legislation that may pave the way for the legalization of polygamy under the guise of “religious freedom.” In a nod to anti-gay marriage advocates who warned the legalization of same-sex marriage would lead to other kinds of sexual freedoms, such as polygamy, the ruling is deemed a watershed moment for the rights of polygamist families— of which there is estimated to be...

    If Americans are truly fed-up with Barack Obama and want him removed from office, entire communities should be spending every waking moment waging a grassroots campaign to reclaim the rule of law on November 4, 2014. Without garnering the necessary numbers in the Senate, the chamber that actually adjudicates proposed articles of impeachment, any attempt to dismiss Mr. Hussein would be an exercise in futility and easily dismissed as a partisan witch hunt by the lapdog media. The reason why the President operates with such impunity – a contemptuous disregard for the Constitution and our liberties – is because he...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she wanted more Central American citizens to apply for asylum to live in the United States from their home countries. The Obama administration is reportedly considering setting up a satellite facility in Honduras to allow people to apply for asylum without coming to the United States, but Clinton said Guatemalans and El Salvadorans should have asylum facilities in their nations as well. In an interview with Jorge Ramos on Fusion, Clinton said that she wanted facilities "over there" to "screen kids... before they get in the hands of coyotes, or they get on...

    We are entering Bizarro Land now. All hell is breaking loose overseas and on the homefront, while Barack Hussein Obama continues to shuck, jive, golf, and schmooze with billionaire democrat donors for weeks on end at a multitude of taverns, eateries, posh venues, country clubs, and resorts. It’s raining men, women, and children It’s literally raining hundreds of innocent civilian bodies and body parts from the sky, and thousands of deadly missiles, as passenger airliners and kindergarten buildings become set-pieces in a video nightmare, blown to bits along with their human contents for a reality horror documentary about a world...
  • Unions weep: After becoming RTW state, Michigan incomes rise

    Hey, do you remember when Michigan shocked the nation and became a right to work state in 2012? That was supposed to usher in the end of the world, at least in the view of union leaders and their Democrat water carriers. As Thomas Lifson reminds us at The American Thinker, the predictions were nigh on to apocalyptic. “There will be blood, there will be repercussions,” State Democratic Rep. Douglas Geiss, speaking on the House floor on Tuesday, warned ahead of the votes. And of course, there were predictions of disaster for the “little guy” as ruthless bosses would exploit...

    Question: When is a tech news site actually a public relations arm for a bloodthirsty terror group? Answer: when that tech news website is called Mashable. Consider a couple of their recent stories, designed to garner sympathy for actual bloodthirsty war criminals (no links for obvious reasons; simply search for the headline and you'll find it if you decide you prefer to read Hamas marketing material): • 'Am I Going to Die, Daddy?' The Child in Gaza Asked by Jon Snow • U.N. Official Warns of Gaza War Crimes; Only U.S. Votes Against Investigating by AP • 45000 Londoners Protest...

    On Wednesday, before the Senate EPW Committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy had this priceless quote regarding the EPA’s proposed carbon dioxide regulations (italics added): “And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. It’s about increased efficiency at our plants…It’s about investments in renewables and clean energy. It’s about investments in people’s ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units.”

    Emily Miller is the famous investigative reporter who wrote the series  "Emily Gets Her Gun" about applying for a permit to legally own a firearm in the District of Columbia.  The series led to her successful book of the same title.   An autographed copy sits near my elbow.   I met Emily a couple of years ago at a Gun Rights Policy Conference.   She is a sharp woman, intimately familiar with the insanity of D.C. gun laws, who owns a legally registered handgun in the District of Columbia. She recently tweeted: Stay tuned- I'm writing a story with the details...

This shows just how incredibly stupid the supervisors at the IRS are. For four years, they were too stupid to notice the altered receipts that one of their employees was giving them when she used her IRS credit card to make personal purchases.Anyone who is too stupid to notice that, should not be working as a supervisor at the IRS.The Smoking Gun reports:Entrusted with a government credit card, an Internal Revenue Service worker allegedly used...

    My Challenge to the Washington Post To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama. One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the...
