  • Rush Limbaugh: New Media Kept Press From Turning 'Gentle Giant' Into Rodney King

    Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh declared during his radio show on Friday that the “mainstream media” was unable to transform “gentle giant” black teenager Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, into Rodney King -- the black man who became famous for a high-speed pursuit by the police and later asking “Can't we all get along?” 22 years ago -- because “alternative media,” including talk radio, has destroyed “the monopoly of the Drive-By Media.” That claim was contradicted by Touré Neblett, a co-host of MSNBC's weekday The Cycle program, who charged in...

    I followed a trail of blood up the concrete steps as Deja vu overtook my thoughts. I’d been here before, just a few short months ago, doing the same exact thing, following a trail of blood to an open front door. As was the case then, on this night there had been another call for shots fired heard coming from the street. A trail of blood, an open door and no body to be found. Just like last time, the person was taken to the hospital by a friend, so we wait to hear from the hospital when they make...

    Radio station KFNS-FM (100.7 FM, “The Viper”) of Troy, Missouri is reporting on its Facebook page a bombshell of a claim: ***BREAKING NEWS*** Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction....

    short but explosive video of former CIA Director James Woolsey in 2006 has been introduced into evidence at the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his officers. In that video, Woolsey advocates the removal of Middle Eastern dictators, even mentioning Mubarak by name while strongly implying that after the fall of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the U.S. would seek similar regime changes in Libya, Syria and elsewhere to make the Saudis and Mubarak 'nervous.'

Foreigners, including the US Embassy staff have fled the city. ISIS appears to be pulling forces away from the Kurdish front to face the faltering Iraqi government in Baghdad.

    PROGRESS? Some technology represents unquestioned progress, despite causing real challenges to the employment prospects of citizens who are made redundant. For example, recent advances in science and medicine have merely scratched the surface in terms of enhancing our ability to find cures for diseases in an increasingly focused way at sharply diminished cost. Also, the technology of moving people and goods in vehicles and organizing their movement on roads contains tremendous opportunities for cost and energy efficiencies, as do the areas of resource extraction, the development of alternative energy and the efficiency of food production.

    Glen Beck’s “charity” charade is neither conservative nor, in my opinion, Christian.  This nation’s charitable impulses have already been exploited beyond belief through decades’ worth of lax immigration enforcement.  The most likely outcome of Beck’s “charity” act is that it will diminish the rule of law and undermine conservative goals.With his flippant gift-giving, Beck (and his colleagues like Dana Loesch) will make it harder for America to reduce illegal immigration, maintain our sovereignty, and restrain the welfare state.  How could teddy bears and soccer balls have such an impact?  The short answer is that giving door prizes to illegal aliens...

    In Boston, parking’s been a nightmare for ages, with spaces capped by the federal Clean Air Act and further state regulations. Funny enough, that means MORE air pollution as frustrated drivers circle around the city looking for a place to put the car. So when free-market capitalism and technology ride to the rescue, you might think Boston would be quick to embrace the instant reduction in idling traffic. But if you’ve seen this movie before, you’ve already spotted the error: “free-market capitalism”. THAT’S a bigger no-no than smog!

    President Obama and his administration fail at many of the basics of governing a free republic, but the two things they seem to excel at are creating scandals and lying about them. After the recent VA scandal, the IRS targeting ordeal, and of course, Benghazi, much of the nation already believes that Barack Obama lies about pretty much everything. This is why it will likely not shock Americans, especially those who are well informed, to find out that the president has been telling fibs about the border crisis.

In a stunning rebuke, the dominant newspaper in the state of Minnesota, the very left-wing and politically correct Star-Tribune of Minneapolis has editorialized a demand for a special prosecutor: The old caution against ascribing to malice what can be explained by incompetence is worth keeping in mind when evaluating a high-profile blunder in either the private or public sector, such as the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups for...

    With the momentum of the appropriations process stalled in the Senate, Sen. Harry Reid is trying to bring back the grease that helps the legislative wheels roll: earmarks. It is no secret that the Senate Majority leader is a huge proponent of the specially-tailored spending provisions that have faced a moratorium in congress since 2011. “I have been a fan of earmarks since I got here the first day,” Reid proselytized in May, right as eager appropriators got off to the fastest start in recent history. But congressional appropriators’ optimism has faltered as lawmakers have failed to reconcile policy and...

    With all eyes firmly focused on what really matters (the oil refineries), The Telegraph reports that ISIS has over-run a Saddam Hussein-era chemical weapons (CW) complex. The al-Muhanna 'mega-facility', about 60 miles south of Baghdad, gives the jihadists access to disused stores of hundreds of tonnes of potentially deadly poisons including mustard gas and sarin. The US state department is 'concerned' but "do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value." However, as a former commander of Britain's chemical weapons regiment warned, "we have seen that ISIS has used chemicals in explosions in Iraq before and has...

However, most authors don’t get $14 million advances, and most authors don’t plan to use their book as a springboard into a presidential campaign either.In those circumstances, Daniel Halper argues, the sales have been, er, brutal: “Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster],” says the source, who gave permission for his email to be published. “Sales were...

Like Virginia, candidate spending was lopsided with the presumed favorite Burris heavily outspending the challenger. But in the end, the race appears to have hinged on one thing above all else: Burris’...

Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals. Such a decision, progressives shriek, would constitute a victory for the dark forces behind the “war on women,” erode employee protections against discrimination, and dramatically reduce access to health care...

    I promise I will not spend the next 232 days - between now and election day - writing about how the mid-terms are going to turn out. You know my record for prognostication. It's dreadful. Nevertheless, here is what I Tweeted yesterday afternoon: @richgalen Gallup Obama Approval 3-day track = 39-55. One year ago was 50-43. Reason enough for Dems to worry. http://bit.ly/6v3JWW There is not much statistical difference between an approval rating of 42 and 39 (and it is likely to bounce within that range) but, the psychology of one being in the 40s and the other in the...

    In 2007, in my 60th post on SWP, I wrote a post about Putin and the Euros, titled “A Man in a Hurry.” If you look at Putin’s aggression in Ukraine, and the utterly pusillanimous European response to this aggression, that post from more than 7 years ago is quite clearly prophetic, to the last jot and tittle. The closing paragraph: **** I think that most Europeans, and those few Americans who seem to pay much attention to these issues, are nonplussed by Putin’s audacity in large part because they are projecting their attitudes onto him. They cannot envision why...

    I was reading a blog at another site, and came upon this excellent post. With full permission of the author I repost it here. Enjoy! It's long but worth the time IMHO. It's also the most sense out of The Ninth Circuit that I've ever seen. By California Lawyer | Friday, January 24, 2014 at 4:23 pm What First Amendment protections are afforded a blogger sued for defamation? This was the question presented recently in a case just decided in the most liberal appellate court jurisdiction in the USA, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The issue was one of...

    A federal appellate court ruled Friday that the author of a blog post deserves the same treatment in a defamation case as "institutional media." The three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals held unanimously that there is no difference between a journalist for a media outlet and another speaker when it comes to First Amendment protections. The case stems from a series of blog posts published in 2010 by a woman accusing a financial advice firm of fraud and corruption. One of the firm's principals was appointed as the bankruptcy trustee to a company that had misappropriated client...

    As spotted by Steve Goddard, and linked to by Climate Depot: In 1974, Time Magazine blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling. ‘Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.’Another Ice Age? – TIME Forty years later, Time Magazine blames the cold polar vortex on global warming ‘But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global...
  • Santa is Not Only White – He’s Also Republican!

    t seems apropos to mention something controversial about Santa Claus, given the recent furor over his skin pigmentation. (Because, ya know, early Catholic Bishops and German folklore characters are traditionally such a multicultural crowd.) But, my controversial comment about old Saint Nick has little to do with his racial identification. You see, I have given it many hours of thought (no… I have no life), and I am convinced that Kris Kringle is (undoubtedly) a member of the Republican Party. Wait! Hear me out! He may not be a Gadsden-flag-waving member of the tea party, but he definitely belongs to...

    Hashim Nzinga, the man who issued a $10,000 bounty for George Zimmerman before he was acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin, now has assumed leadership of the New Black Panther Party. It was in March 2012 when Nzinga issued the bounty even before Zimmerman was charged for the death of Martin. Nzinga never has called off the bounty. Journalist and author Jack Cashill, who covers the Zimmerman controversy in his upcoming book “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” said the fact that Nzinga has risen to lead the radical black nationalist organization...
