  • Conservative Media Rallies to Walker After Tough Talk on Legal Immigration

    The conservative movementís leading media icons lined up to back Scott Walker after the media attempted to lynch him for talking tough on immigration.After being attacked...Walker stayed the course...ďA couple years ago, when the unemployment rate was at incredibly high levels and labor participation was low, why would we want to flood the market with more workers?Ē he said. ďSo that would be a time when you would have arguably less. As the unemployment rate goes down and labor participation rates go up, the two have to go hand in hand. Then it could be conceivably more than we have...
  • Freddie Gray Protesters Attack, Rob Reporter Videotaping Them (Baltimore, Maryland)

    As demonstrations in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody became increasingly violent last night, protesters attacked and robbed a Russia Today reporter who was videotaping them. Young men were seen in the video flashing the middle finger to the camera and shouting obscenities. As they get closer to the reporter videotaping, she is thrown to the ground. According to RTís Russian-language site, a protester stole the reporterís handbag. She pursued the attacker on foot until police showed up. As The Blaze pointed out, though, RT neglected to mention the attack on their English-language website. Watch the...
  • Priorities: Nets Cover First Dog Bo 28 Times More Than Armenian Genocide

    Media Research Center ^ | April 24, 2015 | Dan Gainor
    Many historians call the Armenian Holocaust the first holocaust of the 20th Century, a dress rehearsal for the Nazi nightmare that followed. This April 24 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of roughly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of Turkish Muslims. That mass slaughter has gone virtually unreported by the broadcast networks. It was a genocide so awful that candidate Barack Obama promised in 2008 he would acknowledge it as such. ďAs president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide,Ē he vowed. Obama has violated that promise every year since. This will be the seventh anniversary that Obama...

    Evidence from the student newspaper of Princetonís college newspaper shows that the young Ted Cruz was a defender of womenís rights and not the anti-woman oaf. Cruz favored instituting a patrol program at Princeton to cut down on violence and sexual assaults against women on campus, according to the Daily Princetonian on September 20, 1990. Cruz also was a member of the campus safety committee on campus. He called for spending money to address the problem of date rape on campus instead of a costly $700,000 program to institute locks. ďMoney should be spent on increasing proctor presence ó especially...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | April 23, 2015 | By Jonathan Bernstein
    Good news for Obamacare supporters: It's quite a bit less unpopular than it was a few months ago. The uptick leads to the question: Will the Affordable Care Act ever actually be popular? Looking at the long run, Republicans may have done the law a favor by naming it Obamacare. Former presidents usually bask in a nostalgic glow after they leave office. While events could still make a difference, Obama is well-positioned to take advantage of that effect: To date, at least, he has no major wars to regret, and the nation hasn't plunged into a new recession. If long-term...

    MADISON, Wis. Ė Of all of the frightening accounts of government abuses in Wisconsinís political John Doe investigation, David Frenchís description in National Review of the early-morning raid on Cindy Archerís home may be the most stunning. But there are two nearly forgettable lines in Frenchís retelling of the raid that reveal volumes about the secret investigations aimed at bringing down Wisconsinís conservative activist community. Archer, French writes, ďlooked outside and saw a person who appeared to be a reporter. Someone had tipped him off.Ē Supporters of the Democrat-launched political John Doe probes into conservatives have argued secrecy is key...

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ailes was asked whether he thought Cruz could win the the GOP nomination. His answer: Sure, it could happen. Because just about anybody could win, right? "Listen, we elected Warren G. Harding. Anybody has a chance," Ailes said. "You don't know who you're going to be running against. If the other guy falls on his rear end, you could win." Harding -- ouch. For those of us who haven't taken an...

I'd like to think, that here in the United States, we still have a say in who our chief executive is. The GOP has a large and varied selection of serious (and some not so serious) contenders vying for the Republican nomination. The Democratic Party has one candidate - Hillary (very Castroesque).

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The city of Chicago is proposing a $5.5 million reparations package for those who suffered under the ruthless rule of police commander Jon Burge from 1972 to 1991. Backed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the plan would supply victims with free college tuition, counseling for drug abuse and psychological issues, and include a formal apology from the city, according to the Chicago Tribune. While the plan appears to be an attempt to reckon with part of the city's less-than-spotless past, Thursday evening Fox Business Network's Charles Payne said he's afraid nationwide slavery reparations might be next.

    Now that Hillary Rodham Clinton has announced her second attempt at becoming Our President, we should consider the implications of her support -- and the lack of accountability that she has come to expect. And we should definitely consider the consequences of her becoming Chief Executive. At least one person associated with her has died under questionable circumstances. She has gleefully and repeatedly participated in attacking the much-younger women who dared to open their mouths about her husband using his position of authority to manipulate them into servicing him sexually. She has used insider trading to enrich herself while at...

    Making Big Media the issue could, in fact, be precisely the means to truly energize conservative and by making Democrats the obvious toadies of Big Media, to deflate the left in 2016.

    Recently, sandwiched between the Cruz and upcoming Rubio campaign announcements, Univision took the opportunity to remind us of their own clear preference regarding the 2016 presidential ticket, and their anointed ďLatino Candidate.Ē

    If the intent of the ‚Äúgoing small‚ÄĚ campaign wasn‚Äôt already obvious enough, MSNBC‚Äôs Alex Seitz-Wald connects the last remaining dots. Team Hillary wants to run an ‚Äúintimate‚ÄĚ campaign in order to counter the impression that the former First Lady and Secretary of State feels overly entitled to voters‚Äô support and higher office, which means doing what other candidates regularly do as part of retail campaigning ‚ÄĒ smaller events, one-on-one interactions, especially in Iowa where voters expect that approach. Seitz-Wald reports that the campaign has already begun to strategize how that can keep the media from asking too many questions...
  • Media Tries Getting ĎPedanticí On Ted Cruz

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 10, 2015 | John Hayward
    The Left has become very devoted to the strategy of defining Republicans with early hits. Conventional wisdom holds such tactics were particularly effective against Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential candidate in 2008, and Mitt Romney on the top of the ticket in 2012. Thatís why we have overheated and dishonest attempts to portray Senator Rand Paul as a short-tempered misogyinst, and a crusade to discredit Senator Ted Cruz as a spinner of tall tales, disconnected from reality. The interview between Cruz and CNBCís John Harwood I mentioned yesterday Ė in which Harwood asked, ďWhy shouldnít somebody listen to you and...

    The NRA Convention starts today, in Nashville, Tennessee. And so, rather predictably, the New York Times has started its day by lying about it.

    Conservatives know what to expect when the networks create shows about lawyers. From "L.A. Law" to "Ally McBeal," we've observed countless crusading liberal protagonists confront and defeat conniving corporate executives and other corrupt establishment villains. This seemed to describe "The Good Wife" on CBS over the past five years. But something interesting has happened over the past few weeks. Producers have introduced a wealthy conservative character named Reese Dipple, who engages seasoned liberal lawyer Diane Lockhart on the hot-button social issues of the day. As they say on cable TV, you won't believe what happens next. This debate began because...

    Drugstore chain Walgreens Boots Alliance will close 200 stores as part of a plan to cut $1.5 billion in expenses over the next three years.... Walgreens is closing some U.S. stores at a time when the company is reporting stronger results for its domestic retail pharmacy business. That division, which includes Walgreens and Duane Reade stores, posted second-quarter sales of $21 billion, up 7.4% from a year ago. Same-store sales climbed 6.9%....

    I'm so glad the world has David Corn of Mother Jones. Without him, how would we get the most pressing and important information on our Republican Presidential candidates? After all, it's not everyone who can read Wikipedia and use Google so masterfully. This week, we learn from our intrepid reporter that not only is Ted Cruz an attorney, but he also once represented clients. After serving over five years as the state of Texasí top lawyer, Cruz in 2008 joined the Houston office of the high-powered, international law firm Morgan Lewis to lead its Supreme Court and national appellate practice....

    (Snip) The same folks who are expressing outrage that Rolling Stone has blown off its journalistic responsibility have blown off their own. For seven years, they have been supine as President Obama and his policies have ravaged the Constitution and jeopardized the nationís security. Worse, they have often made excuses for the unconstitutional and dishonest behavior, and have buried or ignored stories when reporters and even an entire network ó Fox News ó have attempted to uncover the truth.

    I have no idea how an answer like this plays among the electorate generally ‚ÄĒ maybe it‚Äôll be seen as evasive ‚ÄĒ but among righties on Twitter, who are high-fiving over it as I write this, it‚Äôs spun gold. Via Dave Weigel, skip to 8:00 of the clip below for the question and answer. The AP tried to corner Paul on abortion this afternoon by asking him to state definitively which exceptions to a ban he‚Äôd support. (In their defense, although firmly pro-life, he has been strategically cagey about his intentions on this subject if elected president.) Paul danced...

    Commentary Magazine ^ | April 8, 2015 | Jonathan S. Tobin
    Yesterday was Rand Paulís big day as the Kentucky senator announcement his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination. Like any baseball team on opening day, in theory his chances are as good as any other candidate, and given the expected crowded field competing for the nod, thatís still true. But though his Louisville announcement bash went smoothly, what followed hasnít gone quite as well. Some of that is due to Paulís personality turning media appearances sour. But just as important is the way the basic contradiction in his campaign strategy is undermining his chances almost from the start. Though Paul...

    The Virginian Pilot reacted with hate and bigotry to the evidence that the fable about coed ďJackieĒ gang raped by the fraternity brothers at UVA was a lie from beginning to end. They ran a cartoon showing a ďright wingĒ couch potato ranting about rape to his TV set while his daughter enters the room, apparently the victim of rape. Itís the kind of thing you expect from the ďcool kids gangĒ in junior high taunting their classmates after they are exposed as fakes. Itís what the little bastard do to reclaim their superior status. There is a great takedown...
