  • Honeymoon Over: Speaker Paul Ryan Targets His Own Republicans, Not Democrats, with Ads on Healthcare

    Breitbart ^ | March 10, 2017 | Matthew Boyle
    House Speaker Paul Ryan is openly targeting House Republicans with television advertisements—while conspicuously not hitting Democratic members—to try to browbeat them into supporting his healthcare legislation. The ad then cuts to President Trump’s recent address to a joint session of Congress, where Trump says he wants to “repeal and replace Obamacare.”

    President Obama claims that his administration is the most transparent in history. That’s laughable and can be thoroughly debunked in under 10 seconds. Hillary Clinton is trying to replace him and we all know that she is the least transparent politician we have seen in decades. Over the holiday weekend, she finally answered a few questions from reporters and she said that the questions (which aren’t really questions anymore) of pay for play at her foundation will be answered. After the election… From The Daily Caller: Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton told reporters Tuesday that conflict of interest questions about the...

    When Trump calls a reporter a "sleaze," most Americans know exactly what he is talking about. We have often talked about it on American Thinker and, judging by our commentators, many Americans truly hate the media. Other than our corrupt Congress, the media rate as consistently the most hated institution in this country. The press lie constantly, and their lies are exposed every day by conservative radio and opinion sites. Lying to the public is a basic betrayal of a vital survival function in a democratic republic, a true stab in the back. It is a husband betraying his wife,...

    A hit and run on a Muslim women in Molenbeek this weekend, blamed on ‘far right’ anti-Islam demonstrators, was in fact perpetrated by an allegedly drunk local youth named “Mohamed”. The revelation comes after news websites across the world – including the Daily Mail, the New York Post, EuroNews, the Evening Standard, Russia Today, the International Business Times, the Sunday Times, the Huffington Post, the Metro, ITV News, the Daily Caller, the Independent, the Sun, the Mirror and more – lumped the blame onto “far right” protesters in the no go zone of Brussels.

    Newly released emails from Lois Lerner show the former IRS official at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal calling Republican critics “evil and dishonest,” and even “hateful.” The emails -- part of a report released Aug. 6 by the Senate Finance Committee -- offer a revealing look at Lerner, who used to head the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status and was at the center of the scandal over the alleged targeting of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. The bipartisan report found evidence that both the Obama administration’s political agenda, and the personal politics of IRS...

As I pointed out in the earlier piece, Hoft posted a stock image of a CT scan of a fractured eye socket, but apparently erased the words “UNIV OF IOWA” from his copy of the image. Well, thanks to LGF readers @franklinftw and @loveheylola, I can now remove the word “apparently” from that description, because we have proof that Hoft (or someone who works with him) did...

    There is perhaps nothing which so perfectly exposes the partisan instincts of the political press as do our various National Conversations on poverty issues. When poverty again becomes a major focus of the media, as it often does when Republicans are on the political ascendancy, the intentions of Democrats are almost always framed as pure and decent. Republicans, meanwhile, are morally bankrupt, indecent, and self-serving – often simply for refusing to throw money at the problem at hand. Does that characterization sound a little unforgiving of the press? It should, and they have earned it. The most recent example...

Such an office can issue papers which do not bear the Pope's "seal of approval" in the same way that a papal encyclical would.  We are dealing here, then, with something on the order of...

But in attacking Romney, Perry is by extension taking a shot at Jeb Bush, who has praised Obama's initiatives. ... The Washington Post notes that Perry selectively edited out the end of Romney's remarks, where he says "but for me, get that back to the state level."

But even as Britain attempts to prevent frivolous libel suits, the battle continues in the US. American courts are being utilised by radical Islamic groups to stifle writers through "lawfare" – the use of law as a weapon of warfare – a tactic that has had a "chilling effect" on free speech. In contrast to the British laws, American libel law favours defendants. However, plaintiffs in...

    The projected long-term cost of the government's bailout of the nation's big banks is going to be at least $200 billion less than previously thought, a United States Treasury Department official said Sunday. The Obama administration had estimated the cost to taxpayers of the $700-billion Troubled Asset relief Program, or TARP, would be $341 billion but now says it can cut that by $200 billion. "That improvement is driven by the fact that Treasury's investments to stabilize the system are delivering higher returns than anticipated and that Treasury does not anticipate having to draw upon the full $700 billion in...

    The new House health care bill (H.R. 3962) unveiled by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) yesterday clocks in at 1,990 pages and about 400,000 words. As written, the bill purports to cost only $1.05 trillion over the first ten years and is paid for by over $700 billion in tax increases and cuts to Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug payments. But as troubling as those numbers are, the scariest thing about the bill is the solid foundation it lays for a complete government take over of the health care sector of our economy. The Washington Post describes the bill as...

    Throughout the health care debate, President Barack Obama repeatedly promised the American people that his health care plan “will help bring our deficits under control in the long term.” The problem is that the White House could not get the Congressional Budget Office to cooperate. Throughout the summer the CBO issued report after report showing that the versions of Obamacare working their way through Congress all added to the deficit. First, CBO found that the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) bill would increase the deficit by $1 trillion. Three weeks later, the CBO released a report...

    Roll Call ^ | May 12, 2009 | Tory Newmyer and Steven T. Dennis
    For Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), it’s a new week of old questions: What did she know about harsh Bush administration interrogation techniques, and when did she know it? Usually a master of message discipline, Pelosi has been thrown off balance by a mounting firestorm over whether she or her staff learned six years ago that intelligence officials were using extreme tactics such as waterboarding. For weeks, the Speaker has insisted she didn’t, though a declassified report last week suggested otherwise. And Republicans, sensing a rare opportunity, are moving to keep the heat on the discrepancy over competing versions of what...

    SNIPPET: "In the last few days, Arunachalam Chrishanthakumar, a leading member of the Tamil community in Britain was convicted of supplying bomb-making parts to the Tamil Tigers – a designated terrorist organization, banned both by Britain and the EU. According to the Guardian, the police had become aware of Chrishanthakumar’s activities five years ago, but had merely warned him to “stop buying electrical components.” This is perhaps all the more remarkable when one considers that in 2002 the Tamil Tigers – although nationalist rather than Islamist – leant support to Harakat-al Mujahideen, a Pakistani militant group affiliated with al-Qaeda.

    The American Thinker ^ | April 14, 2009 | Kyle-Anne Shiver
    The Rasmussen folks last week revealed a poll wherein American young people are just about evenly divided on whether they prefer capitalism to socialism. Among our under-30 crowd, 37% prefer capitalism, 33% socialism, and 30% are undecided. Sucking at the teat of the state has never looked so good, apparently. Well, this certainly helps explain Obamamania. Tie this purely disgusting finding to last year's Josephson Institute Report Card on the Ethics of American Youth, which determined levels of lying, cheating and stealing among high school students, and you'll see a very disturbing pattern of moral erosion. 30% stole from a...

    The Maryland State Board of Education on Tuesday said Frederick County officials are prohibited by federal law from seeking a count of how many illegal immigrants are in the county school system...the state board said county officials haven't shown sufficient reason to look into the legal status of all of the students in the school system and that asking immigration status might discourage some parents from enrolling their children in schools.... "I think that in the end, the real winners are the children who immigrate to Frederick County from other countries eager to take advantage of public education," Marita Loose,...
  • Congressman Defends Bogus Fuel-Cell Trip

    01/12/2009 3:28:01 PM PST · by John Semmens · 15 replies · 924+ views
    Representative Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) purported to have driven to Washington for the opening session of congress in a GM electric fuel-cell powered Equinox. “Taking this GM electric fuel-cell car to Washington reflects all that I will stand for as your Representative,” Massa boasted. Massa’s boast wasn’t true to the facts, though. The 282-mile distance between the congressman’s district and Washington exceeds the 200-mile range of the car and there are no refueling locations along the way. The trip was managed by abandoning the first car in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and continuing in a second identical car. Both fuel-cell cars ultimately had...

    In a further bid to smear the defeated GOP vice-presidential candidate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the Cable News Network (CNN) included her name in a list with seven others: Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-Illinois: charged with attempting to sell a senate seat), former senator John Edwards (D-N.C.: caught cheating on terminally ill wife), Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D-Detroit: in jail for obstruction of justice), Mayor Larry Langford (D-Birmingham: arrested for bribery, fraud and money laundering), Representative Tim Maloney (D-Fla: multiple extramarital affairs), Governor Elliot Spitzer (D-NY: consorting with prostitutes), Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska: convicted on bribery charges). While there can be little...

    Open letter to Obama The New York Times carried a story on Saturday, October 4, 2008 that proved you had a significantly closer relationship with Bill Ayers than what you previously admitted. While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it. The Chicago Sun reported on May 8, 2008 that FBI records showed that you had a significantly closer relationship with Tony Rezko than what you previously admitted. In the interview, you said that you only saw Mr. Rezko a couple of times a year. The FBI files showed...

    Are the Media finally hitting Obama for the obvious fact that he's just another Chicago-style politician? If only other Media sources would at least admit it even if they still support him. No one is saying McCain is not a typical politician, but it is disingenuous to claim Obama is of a different sort. The New Hampshire Union Leader writes on this very topic:

    Oped For The Political Season [#6 in a series] What a spectacle! The obscenity of media whoring for the DNC/Obama campaign is astonishing to behold. Never in my 63 years have I seen anything to match it! The vast majority of media in America are engaged in rape of a conservative, accomplished, talented, beautiful, athletic, motherly, sincere W O M A N Â… because she is not from the left; she is not Hillary Rodham Clinton or Geraldine Ferraro. Before we go any further, letÂ’s see what is at the heart of this assault on Sarah Palin and her family...
