    Spittin' image Whoever these actors are (I’ll keep trying to find their names), they not only look like Hillary and Huma Abedin, but they portray their counterparts’ nonverbals spectacularly. That’s all you get from war room Hillary, by the way. She never says a word, which is just as well because we all know what happens when Hillary speaks - and it’s not pretty. Trump fans won’t like the ad because the whole point is that Hillary’s people consider him easy to beat with all the oppo research they’ve got on him, most of which is not oppo research at...
  • BRUTAL Ad Released Ripping Trump on Illegal Immigration Flip-Flop

    Daily Wire ^ | January 28, 2016 | By: Hank Berrien
    A new ad that brutally exposes Donald Trump's hypocrisy vis-a-vis illegal immigration did not come from any of his current opponents, but rather Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump group led by former Mitt Romney aide Katie Packer. The ad opens by asserting that the reason Trump is skipping Thursday"s GOP debate is "Trump can't handle tough questions, like why he'd let millions of illegal immigrants stay in America and even supports a pathway to citizenship." The ad then shows Trump addressing a Chicago audience last June, sounding as if he endorsed giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. Trump lectured,...

    Just minutes after Donald Trump came under fire for retweeting a white nationalist on Friday, another Twitter user pointed out that the Republican presidential front-runner's latest campaign ad features images of Soviet soldiers. [screen capture at source] The images were included in a 40-second video posted to Trump's Facebook page Friday and accompanied by the following caption: "Our veterans are being treated worse than illegal immigrants. If Trump becomes president, that will end immediately. Our veterans will be proud and respected again. #‎MakeAmericaGreatAgain." Several of the medals worn by the veterans depicted in the video are engraved with a hammer...

    30 years ago, a man ran for the Senate because his opponent kept claiming to be for spending cuts while raising spending. His opponent kept claiming to be a conservative, while letting big government grow, even when he was the majority and could stop it. Maybe that candidate needs to be reminded of his own words.

    I close my eyes and imagine the coming days. The American public growing skeptical and then outright dismissive of Obamacare. A growing revulsion over the administration's Benghazi deception. A national awakening to the crises we face in spending, especially on entitlements. But then I open my eyes, and I have to look at the real world. Sure, "Saturday Night Live" and late-night comics are poking fun at the disastrous rollout. But does anyone doubt that these pop-culture jokesters would still vote for Obama by 90 percent margins in the next five elections if they could? Do not fool yourselves....

    Dirty political campaigns are as old as the Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams are said to have thrown the first mud at each other in the presidential election of 1800. Jefferson accused his old pal -- who was then president -- of being a fool, a hypocrite, a criminal and a tyrant. Adams returned fire, calling his vice president and challenger Jefferson "a mean-spirited, low-lived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father." I don't know what the average citizen of 1800 thought about those lies and name-calling, which have been an...
  • Obama gets back to black voters with his 'We've got your back' radio ad

    06/13/2012 1:25:03 PM PDT · by Lucky9teen · 28 replies ^ | Tuesday 12 June 2012 | Paul Harris
    Called "We've got your back", it is a 60-second radio spot – the first ad of the 2012 season to specifically target black voters. One does not imagine the Romney campaign will follow suit (though I wish it would). It begins Tuesday 12 June. It is being placed nationally to run on radio stations with a predominately black audience. Unlike most ads, which are targeted geographically, this ad is aimed demographically. That means in some swing states with a large African-American population, such as Virginia or North Carolina, it could serve as a boost to win a battleground. But in...

    COMMENTARY | Yet another celebrity advertisement for President Barack Obama was unveiled earlier this week. While Marc Anthony may be an attractive and accomplished singer, he likely does not have much in common with the typical Latino voter. Anthony's impassioned plea that Obama needs another term to continue "making progress" and that he "has our backs" during the video clip republished on The Blaze neglects to mention that Anthony himself has proven he cares little about the nation's debt. According to document excerpts published by the Washington Free Beacon, Anthony is a "tax-dodger" who owed more than $3 million back...

    It may or may not be a coincidence that film director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have an October 2012 release date for a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden. There is little doubt, however, that the Obama campaign will use it to remind voters that the perpetrator of 9/11 died on Barack Obama's watch. Those who oppose this self-serving exploitation of the valor of our Navy SEALs can turn it against the Obama campaign with a short and simple response: "Obama's Stolen Valor." It is in fact short enough to fit on a bumper sticker. "Stolen...

    Sort of mixing my football metaphors here, but Obama made the haughty comment after the Bin Laden operation that he didn’t need to “spike the football.” Well, a change of heart came over the president and he made a web video bragging about offing the al-Qaeda chief: Fourteen million unemployed or underemployed Americans in an election year will have that effect on a president.Weekly Standard: The narrator in the ad is former President Bill Clinton.This latest ad contradicts President Obama’s own pledge after he took out bin Laden. “You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Obama told...

    [snip] The ad scares me. It's actually the “2012” trailer, but without the waves and wolves because Perry does not believe in man-made global warming. This would make a great summer blockbuster. I can see sequel potential, and there’s even Shia LaBoeuf-level acting. But the message is startling. Is Perry's main selling point really, “It's the Apocalypse, and I am the Only Hope For America?” Because, frankly, this is not what I was hoping for from my presidential candidates. “Also, here is some footage of horses!” Zero Change and Zero Jobs. Thank heavens REAL GOLD-FONT ALL-CAPS AMERICAN Rick Perry is...

    Obama 2012 campaign: President Obama himself makes an unexpected announcement about the upcoming "Dinner with Barack" contest. To participate in the contest you need to donate at least $5 to the campaign and your name will be raffled off to enjoy a dinner with the President, airfare and accommodations included. In a new web video, Obama announced Vice President Joe Biden will also be attending the dinner. There is one problem, however. This campaign ad was most likely recorded in the White House, which may have violated FEC campaign finance laws.

    NEW YORK – For TV viewers, this cutthroat election year is a riot of attack ads and media saturation made possible by big-money donors. For TV stations, it's a stimulus package. One research group expects TV political spending to hit a record $3 billion. The windfall may continue well past Election Day because regular advertisers are getting squeezed out of the schedule and could spend their ad budgets later. Coming out of a recession that put some broadcasters in or near bankruptcy protection, political spending is emerging as a critical — but temporary — source of revenue. Several factors created...

    Congressman and US Senate candidate Joe Sestak (D-Pennsylvania) has released a new ad today highlighting his 31 years of military service. The 30 second spot trumpets Mr. Sestak's military career, refers to him as Admiral Joe Sestak and states, "Now he's running to serve Pennsylvania, standing up to the bosses in both parties." But Admiral Sestak didn't go right from his military career to his current senate campaign. In between have been his 2 terms in the US House of Representatives and his strong support for the Obama agenda.

On Monday’s "Good Morning America," ABC devoted 38 minutes of air time to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards in a town hall special. This is in addition to the over 26 minutes they provided fellow ‘08 contender Hillary Clinton back in March. That’s a grand total of 64 minutes of publicity for Democratic candidates and zero for Republicans. Now, to be fair to "Good Morning America," GMA host Diane Sawyer did ask tougher, harsher questions than her colleague...

The ad wrongly claims that Mr. Allen "tried to steer government contracts to a company that paid him in stock options," wrongly claims that Mr. Allen "hid those options for years" and wrongly claims that the options are worth $1.1 million. None of this is true. First, the alleged "steering" of contracts -- it never happened. ......

The company, iN DEMAND, said Friday that its decision is due to ``legitimate business and legal concerns.'' A spokesman would not elaborate. Moore has just released his movie on DVD and was seeking a TV outlet for the film.

    Hey, Michael, Where Were Your Friends? Once upon a time, there was Michael Moore the First. He never forgot his friends. Come time for the Washington, DC premiere of Bowling for Columbine a while back, he invited his old buddies in Washington—gave them good seats and spent the rest of the evening with them. During his other movie's premiere, he affectionately recognized how much those old friends helped him and supported him after he was mistreated and let go by Mother Jones. He was generous with his words and time. Now there is Michael Moore the Second. Last night he...

    Something to Yak About – Turnabout Strikes Nerve at Kerry Campaign; Silence Turned to Shrieks Over New Web Ad Well!Seems folks at the John Kerry campaign, which was oh so mute about six months back when their pals at Move On Dot Org were running web videos comparing the president to Adolf Hitler, now have their knickers in a collective twist over a Bush-Cheney web video that uses Move On-posted video images to illustrate the kind of people backing Kerry’s bid for the White House – the Coalition of the Wild Eyed, as it were. Good Point, Ken The same...

    Matt Lauer: "The White House communications director said of your film, it is so outrageously false it's not even worth commenting. The 41st President of the United States, the president's father, called you, I think you probably heard this, a slime ball." Michael Moore: "Have they seen it? Have they seen the film? No. Of course they haven't. I will tell you they haven't seen it. These are un-credible reviews from people who haven't even seen the movie." The film is "Fahrenheit 9/11," and as the title suggests, it's meant to be incendiary. Filmmaker Michael Moore serves up a scathing...

    CORPUS CHRISTI -- The creator of a commercial for likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry has resigned after a newspaper complained that he used its photographs without permission. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times had accused Armando Gutierrez of Corpus Christi of using copyrighted Caller-Times photos in the commercial without clearance. "He is no longer helping with our advertising," Kerry campaign spokesman Luis Vizcaino told the newspaper for its Tuesday editions. Sunday was the last day Kerry's television ad involving the Hispanic veterans was broadcast, Vizcaino said.

    Michael Moore email via ^ | May 7th, 2004 | Michael Moore
    Friends, Thank you for all the incredible letters of support as my film crew and I once again slog our way through the corporate media madhouse. Does it ever end? Are we ever going to get control of our "free press" again? Can you wish upon a star? The Disney spin machine has been working overtime dealing with this censorship debacle of theirs. I don't think they thought they would ever be outed. After all, they know that all of us are supposed to adhere to the unwritten Hollywood Code: Never tell the public how business is done here, never...
  • Heads Up... from Michael Moore

    Friends, I have never seen a head so far up a Presidential ass (pardon my Falluja) than the one I saw last night at the "news conference" given by George W. Bush. He's still talking about finding "weapons of mass destruction" -- this time on Saddam's "turkey farm." Turkey indeed. Clearly the White House believes there are enough idiots in the 17 swing states who will buy this. I think they are in for a rude awakening. I've been holed up for weeks in the editing room finishing my film ("Fahrenheit 911"). That's why you haven't heard from me lately....

    <p>A Florida Democratic club has taken out a newspaper advertisement urging the assassination of Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, and another partisan group is running a national television commercial with an actor impersonating President Bush's voice saying, "I used 9/11 as an excuse to invade Iraq."</p>
