    Truth Revolt ^ | 11/25/2013
    On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Sarah Palin responded to the outrageous statements that MSNBC's Martin Bashir had made earlier this month during his program, during which he said that someone should "p*ss" and "s***" on Palin's face. Palin said:   Everybody in life takes shots. You have a decision to make when you take a shot. Are you going to become bitter or better? In a case like this, you  know, I don't have to accept his words - his vile, evil comments - so they don't have to affect me. I move on and I charge forth. ...
  • Flashback: Economic Jitters an Albatross for Bush (4.6% unemployment)

    WASHINGTON — All year long, in speeches and briefings and visits to factories and shops, President Bush and his aides have tried to convince Americans that the economy is in good shape -- and that the president deserves some credit for that. That effort is not making much headway, a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll has found. Americans are closely divided on whether the economy is in good shape, with 50% saying it is doing well and 47% saying it is doing badly, the poll found. In January, when Bush launched his campaign to spread good news, the national mood was...

    Who wants to be Paula Jones? Or Kathleen Willey or Anita Hill? All three women have accused political icons -- Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton and Clarence Thomas -- of sexually harassing them. And what did they get for sticking out their necks? Jones squared off against skater Tonya Harding on "Celebrity Boxing." Willey and Hill wrote books. They can't prove their allegations, and for the rest of their lives, they will have to live with the consequences. They are not in an enviable position. On Sunday, Politico reported that two women had accused GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain of "inappropriate...

    An Afghan policeman has shot dead an American soldier and wounded three others in the southern province of Helmand. A member of the Afghan national police opened fire on the Americans on Thursday during a full scale scuffle in the provincial capital city of Lashkar Gah, located about 555 kilometers (344 miles) south of Kabul, a Press TV correspondent reported. The shooting marks the second incident of its kind in less than a month. On April 27, a veteran Afghan army pilot opened fire on foreign troops at Kabul airport, killing eight US-led soldiers and a contractor. Several US-led foreign...
  • Victory Alone Does Not a Mandate Make [Barf alert]

    The word “mandate” gets thrown around a lot in politics these days, and you can expect to hear it more in the next few weeks, as the conservative majority in the House declares war on the profligate ways of Washington. Tea Party leaders are claiming a clear mandate from the November elections, and House Republicans — whose first acts will be pulled directly from the Tea Party manifesto — apparently agree. Recent history would suggest, though, that new majorities are inclined to misread or inflate their governing mandates. And it’s a mistake the Tea Party types are likely to make,...

    Unsuccessful Jersey City City Council candidate James "Jimmy'' King faced a federal judge in Newark this afternoon and admitted he took $5,000 to $10,000 in bribes in exchange for his future official assistance of development projects proposed by a man who turned out to be a federal informant. By pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right, the 67-year-old King is expected to be sent to prison for 10 to 16 months when he is sentenced on Jan. 5. The charge normally carries a maximum penalty of 20 years behind bars. As a now convicted felon,...

    ABC’s Ron Claiborne on Saturday managed to file a report on vast Democratic corruption in the state of New Jersey and, at the same time, not once use the word Democrat. While reporting on an unfolding scandal that saw the arrest of a number of the state’s mayors and assemblymen, all but one a member of the Democratic Party, the Good Morning America weekend news anchor completely ignored party identification. Claiborne vaguely explained, "44 people indicted, including three mayors, two state legislators and five rabbis and allegations of money laundering, kickbacks and bribe taking." The journalist used the same tactic...

The "60 Minutes" reporter and former swimsuit model apparently courted two beaus while she was in Baghdad, and has been labeled a homewrecker for allegedly destroying the marriage of a civilian contractor there, sources said. Passions got so hot in the combat zone that...

    A Democrat community leader who would "offer a homily during worship services" and facilitated his congregation's "opening our doors to all people regardless of sexual orientation" has been given a slap on the hand after pleading guilty to extensive child pornography offenses involving children as young as six. Authorities say Andrew Douglas Reed, 53, who reported for an abbreviated jail term just a few weeks ago, had pleaded guilty to a page-long list of counts of 2nd-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Court records in the Asheville, N.C., case said he admitted that he would "record, develop and duplicate material...

    Max Becherer/Polaris, for The New York Times A cemetery in Sewsenan, a Kurdish village in northern Iraq, holds the remains of nearly 70 people killed in a chemical attack by Saddam Hussein’s military forces on March 22, 1988. SEWSENAN, Iraq, Aug. 18 — When death came to this village, it had a sweet smell, like perfume. “People wanted to inhale it,” Robitan Hama Amin said. So went Mr. Amin’s memory of the first encounter between the Kurds of this mountain redoubt and Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons. The attack came at dinnertime on March 22, 1988. Mr. Amin had just...

    Israel is too small for any area, any community not to be touched by the present war with Hizbullah in the north and Hamas to the south. Jerusalem is not (yet) in the cross-hairs of enemy missiles, but everyone feels the tension. Tel Aviv sits under Hassan Nasrallah’s televised threat that Hizbullah will give a one-hour warning before launching 500 long-range missiles in a massive singular attack to destroy the booming metropolis. Battle lines have once again been drawn in the north, but the ‘front line’ is every community in Israel. International media attention is focused on the humanitarian crisis...

    We've talked about the bogus Newsweek desecration story for several days now, and so has the White House press corps. Yesterday, in the White House Press Room, Scott McClellan took a question about Newsweek, and said, in essence, that Newsweek ought to do all it can to correct some of the damage they did with their bogus story. Terry Moran, White House correspondent for ABC News, replied, saying that it sounded to him like Scott was trying to be the editor of Newsweek. Elizabeth Bumiller of the New York Times later quipped, very sarcastically, that maybe Scott wanted her to...

    Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz is accusing the Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity of failing to disclose a conflict of interest during a "Hannity & Colmes" broadcast last week, where he touted the good works of his guest, BOND's Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. But the Post reporter failed to disclose his own conflict while blasting the top Fox star. Kurtz complained in his Monday column that during the Peterson broadcast, "Hannity didn't share with viewers that he serves on the advisory board of Peterson's organization. ... Nor did he mention it on Peterson's 12 previous appearances on the program...

    goes without saying that the mantra of The New York Times Editorial Pages is "All the Leftist Propaganda That’s Fit to Print." But sometimes the newspaper’s transparent knee-jerk liberalism shocks even us. Take, for example, the Gray Lady’s political hypocrisy when it comes to appointment of federal judges: Three years ago, when Bill Clinton bypassed the confirmation process by appointing Roger Gregory to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit while the Senate was in recess, the Times’ Editorial Board praised that President’s decisive action, stating that "Clinton rightly moved to address … the refusal by Congress to...

    Posted on Tue, Jun. 25, 2002 Raise debt limit Republicans who dominate the U.S. House are suffering acute embarrassment over the rising debt. They should be. But they should ignore their pride and, along with Democrats, promptly approve a modest increase in the debt limit. Congress has no choice but to raise the federal debt limit. The government has run out of money, and it has reached the limit on borrowing that lawmakers previously established. Congressional delays in raising the limit have squandered large amounts of money by forcing the government into expensive accounting shenanigans. The Senate approved a $450...
