    Phyllis Bennis is a Melissa Harris-Perry fave. How bonkers-left is Bennis? She's a defender of Iran and its nuclear ambitions, and wants Israel wiped off the map, to be replaced by a single Palestinian state. On today's MH-P, Bennis once again put her radical views on display, arguing that many US soliders aren't truly volunteers, but are "forced in by poverty and lack of other opportunities." "That's absolutely ridiculours," responded Iraq war veteran Earl Catagnus Jr. View the video here.

    As Western Journalism reported this week, recent polls indicate a record high number of Americans believe Barack Obama has been a failure as president. A staggering 52 percent of respondents to the Washington Post/ABC poll shared that opinion, with an overwhelming majority of that group “strongly” agreeing with the sentiment. Of course, about four in 10 believe the Obama administration has been successful, meaning at least a portion of the base that elected him twice remains defensive of his policies. As his second term drags on, however, more and more dyed-in-the-wool leftists are abandoning the increasingly unpopular president. The latest...

    It's a view of the Michael Brown shooting we hadn't seen before, but could it be enough to shape the way a grand jury handles the controversial case? An exclusive video first broadcast Wednesday on CNN shows two construction workers' reactions just after a police officer shot the unarmed African-American 18-year-old last month in Ferguson, Missouri. The contractors shown in the short video clip told CNN they saw Brown with his hands up as Officer Darren Wilson pursued him and opened fire. Several legal analysts describe the video as a "game changer." Others said it might not make much of...

    Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this...

The good news about this documentary is that we can be sure it will be free of any political advocacy since Burns has no bias and..... Huh? Am I kidding? Of course I am. The fact is despite Burns' laughable denials, he is a bitterly partisan Democrat to the extent that he gave a speech  in 1998 in which he declared himself to be a "Yellow Dog Democrat." The speech was also chock full of scathing attacks upon Republicans which makes his...

Early Saturday, Obama bowed to Democratic Party pressure and reversed course on taking executive action on immigration reform until after the November midterm elections, after leaders voiced concerns that his rulings could cost Democrats their control of the Senate.

    US President Barack Obama has abandoned a plan to force through immigration reform before the end of the summer. In June, he promised to use executive orders that were expected to change visa rules, boost border security and give a path to citizenship for some 11 million US-based illegal immigrants. But the White House says the plans have been shelved until after mid-term elections in November. Each year tens of thousands try to get into the US from Mexico. Many are unaccompanied children, and Mr Obama has called the situation a "humanitarian crisis"....

However, are these assertions true? Gallop polls since 2008 have shown that fewer and fewer Americans believe he is actually Christian. As a matter of fact, President Obama’s approval ratings are and have remained the highest among Muslims than any other group in the United States. The United States remains a predominantly Christian nation, with over half of our population identifying with a Protestant religion and a quarter with Catholicism....

    Could Ferguson happen here? Some would say it already did — nearly five decades ago. Days of sometimes violent demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo., erupted after Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen, was shot dead by a police officer Aug. 9, allegedly in self-defense. At the height of the civil rights movement, the Watts riots were triggered after a young black motorist was pulled over and arrested by a white California Highway Patrolman on Aug. 11, 1965, on suspicion of drunk driving. The struggle to arrest him sparked six days of rioting that claimed the lives of 34 people, injured more...

    This column concerning the reportage from Jena is exactly what I describe in my novel " A Sense of Duty." The protagonist, rookie police officer Mike Carr, shoots a black organized crime figure who unbeknownst to him is an old high school friend. An award winning journalist,Neil Foster ( a liberal elitist who thinks cops are working class scum), and a local civil rights leader (attempting to revive his career), exploit the incident by completely fabricating a narrative of racist and brutal police conduct. Here is an excerpt: (The scene is a corner bar. The reporter Foster met with a...

    David Gregory is now the poster boy warning for that old adage: be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down. And now that Gregory is on the down career escalator because of his quick removal today from both Meet The Press and NBC News as you can read here at Newsbusters, Dylan Byers at Politico has given him a swift kick on his way out the door. Apparently Gregory was not very nice to the folks who worked at NBC News as you can see below. Perhaps Gregory can take this as...

    Via the Daily Caller, you would think an eyewitness account of the disappearance of the last American POW in Afghanistan would be easy money for a publisher. But sometimes there are higher considerations. While the U.S. Army weighs whether to bring charges against Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was freed earlier this year after spending nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, six of his former platoon mates are shopping proposals for a book and movie that would render their own harsh verdicts… “I’m not sure we can publish this book without the Right using it to their ends,”...

    Democrats from red states are feeling the heat. Their constituents don’t like Obama, or his polices, and they have to somehow convince them that they’ll be somewhat independent when it comes to fighting for their interests. Natalie Tennant, the Democratic candidate in West Virginia’s Senate race, is trying to disseminate that message of independene with this ad rebuking Obama’s energy policy. It was released at the end of July. She says that she’ll protect coal jobs in West Virginia and “stand up to leaders of both parties who threaten our way of life.” She then proceeds to turn off...
  • Hope Dwindles for Hondurans Living in Peril (NY Slimes Propaganda Piece)

    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras — The pastor came one afternoon to survey his church, or what was left of it: remnants of a “welcome” sign and a strip of Christmas garland still tacked to the wall. The gang took the chairs. They took the light fixtures. They took the doors. They had given his family 24 hours to get out and so they did, abandoning their home and the small evangelical church he led. “There was no other way,” Pastor Jorge Rivas said the other day, on the porch of a house in another part of this violent city, where...

    Part One: Can a Free Biafra Stop the African Islamic Caliphate? In the classic comedy, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," the daughter Toula complains to her mother about her stubborn father being the "head of the house," Maria replied, "Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants." Welcome to America, "We the People" are supposed to be informed and in control, but the media is the "neck," she can turn the focus of Americans to what it wants them to see...

    Robert Kennedy, speaking of John Kennedy, using words they would both probably use to praise John Kerry, said that JFK’s favorite quote was this: “The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.” This quote from Dante, derived from his Inferno, describes the way Kerry performs his role as secretary of State. Kerry clearly envisioned and passionately warned that the people of Israel and Palestine must choose between two alternative futures. The first future is the negotiated creation of a two-state solution that would leave Israel and a new state of...
