  • ‘That’s One Cold Bastard’: Scarborough Thinks Terrorists Intimidated By Obama’s Golfing [VIDEO]

    Joe Scarborough believes Islamic State terrorists will be intimidated by President Obama’s golf game just minutes after his statement on beheaded journalist James Foley, perhaps thinking to themselves, “Wow, that’s one cold bastard.” The “Morning Joe” host unveiled his alternative explanation to the “horrifying” images of Obama grinning ear-to-ear on the golf course right after a sober statement condemning the execution of an American journalist by Islamic fundamentalists in Iraq.

    After witnessing the spectacle of MSNBC host Chris Hayes getting pelted with rocks by an angry mob in Ferguson, Mo., Monday night, I was struck by a feeling of anger and frustration. Not at the rioters. Rioters throw rocks. That’s what they do. My anger was at the despicable display of “tolerance” and “understanding” displayed by Hayes, as he lowered his expectations for civil behavior to accommodate his liberal need to be accepted by the mob. Chris Hayes and his MSNBC colleagues Rachel Maddow, Laurence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, and Al Sharpton, have spent hundreds of hours of air...

    President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place. Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon. Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose...

    Move over, War on Women, there's a new war in town. On the August 18 edition of MSNBC's Hardball, contributor Michelle Bernard warned there is a "war on black men" in the United States, as evidence both by the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and persistent criticism of President Barack Obama from Republicans. What's more, Bernard insisted, there would be a "genocide" of young black men unless the problem were seriously addressed to her satisfaction.

    On MSNBC's The Ed Show on Monday, Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said that the results of a private autopsy, which were released last night, show that Michael Brown was "assassinated" by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. "I do have to tell you, looking at the autopsy report last evening, um, it looks like Michael Brown was just killed. It was an assassination, and many of the community members are waiting for this police officer to be arrested. They're waiting for a grand jury and an indictment.

    MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry devoted much of her show Saturday to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown and the unrest that has followed in Ferguson, Missouri. But perhaps the most moving part of her broadcast came when she looked at the hundreds of other unarmed black men who are killed by police every year. ADVERTISEMENT Harris-Perry began by solemnizing reading off just some of the names of those men before arriving at Michael Brown. “In the past decade alone, these men and hundreds of others have lost their lives to police,” she said.

However what is really bizarre about Griffin's contrition is that it also takes the form of declaring that he now gets nervous while walking by Mexican restaurants and becomes upset at the mere sight of a sombrero. I kid you not. And if you doubt me, Griffin is quoted about his new obsessions in the Huffington Post....

In effect, Reid is accusing Israel of being a terrorist state. We should agree that 9/11 was a terrorist attack against the United States.  Those...

As the Daily Beast puts it, ISIS is the terrorist organization so extreme that it was "booted" from Al Qaeda proper. They organized, trained, took Mosul and, as a result, have now confiscated gobs of formerly-U.S. military hardware.

The GOP needs to do something with these "extremists" (Tea Party)!" Then when Boehner and some others won their primaries, the MSM narrative quickly shifted (as in goal-posts): B.) "The GOP has absorbed the Tea Party!" Now with Eric Cantor losing to David Brat (and that was a huge loss), the MSM won't go back on their narrative, even though they logically would have to admit...

    MSNBC somehow hit another new low all over again. Filling in as host on The Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson accused George Will of being a "rapist" and "re-raping" women by writing his opinion in the Washington Post. No. Seriously. Mr. Will stated that colleges have become a haven of progressivism, where so-called "vicimizations" are "ubiquitous." Mr. Will writes that empty buzzwords like "triggers" and "micro-aggressions" are now thrown around colleges to the point of ubiquity. The passage that Mr. Dyson took offense to was one in which Mr. Will stated that, at times, "sexual assault" accusations that are put...

    This video is a short compilation, numerous clips of MSNBC's Chris Matthews denouncing the Bergdahl prisoner swap. Quite amazing. It sounds like Matthews is reading from a script written by Sean Hannity. This video should be required viewing by lefties who thinks any criticism of the swap is a conservative plot.

    Every news network likes to claim the mantle of “the most trusted name in news,” and a new Brookings and Public Religion Research Institute poll seeks to demonstrate who actually does and does not deserve that claim. Among many insights we can take from the survey, perhaps the most interesting is that, among all TV news sources, MSNBC is identified as “most trusted” by the fewest people.
  • MSNBC's Schultz: Bergdahl Criticism Shows Republicans to be 'Ruthless' Muslim Haters

    Doing his best to keep the Obama administration’s front line from falling into retreat, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz sprayed rhetorical cover fire all over the place on his June 5 program, defending Team Obama’s much-criticized deal to release Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five deadly Taliban leaders.
  • Dumbest Defense Yet of Bergdahl Deal?

    Mark Jacobson may have set a new standard for dumb defenses of the Bergdahl deal. Appearing on MSNBC's Up With Steve Kornacki today, scholar and Afghanistan veteran Jacobson suggested that opposition to the Bergdahl deal arises out of the soldier's religion and politics. He made a mind-boggling analogy: "My parents freaked out when I went to Afghanistan both times. If I had been captured. Do I want someone to say this nice Jewish kid over in Afghanistan, a little bit liberal, not really sure if we're going to go get him? Absolutely not." What?? If a nice liberal Jewish kid...

    Chris Matthews Is Not a Fan of This Bowe Bergdahl Deal MSNBC’s Chris Matthews doesn’t seem to have gotten the channel’s memo on the Bowe Bergdahl deal. Many liberal pundits on his network have shown nearly lockstep support for the Obama administration’s handling of the trade of five Taliban commanders for Bergdahl, who’s been accused of desertion by many of his fellow soldiers. However, Matthews, usually a huge fan of the president, has sharply criticized the cost of the trade, the national security consequences of releasing dangerous “Johnnies” as he put it, the actions of Bergdahl himself and the legality...

    Oh-oh, the Bergdahl deal is blowing up in Obama’s face like an Acme brand cigar lighted up by Wile E. Coyote. It’s gotten so bad that even NBC News and its kid brother MSNBC have had it with the BS. Evan McMurray of Mediaite: The Obama administration’s chief reasoning for sidestepping congressional notification in the prisoner swap for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was concern over the captive’s deteriorating health. But after a video — released by the TalibanWednesday morning but not yet confirmed by the Pentagon — showing Bergdahl’s transfer into American custody, NBC News Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski said onMorning Joe Bergdahl appeared on...
  • MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Deeply Skeptical Of Taliban Prisoner Swap

    MSBNC host Chris Matthews became the first on his network to express the slightest bit of skepticism over the Obama administration’s deal to trade Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five high-ranking Taliban officials from Guantanamo Bay, with Matthews repeatedly questioning the wisdom of trading an “AWOL” and possibly treasonous soldier for terrorist mass murderers. Matthews opened his program Monday with a deeply suspicious look into Bergdahl’s statements and actions before he went inexplicably missing from his post in the summer of 2009. In particular, the MSNBC host highlighted portions of a piece by late Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings, which...
  • Behind the White House Leak of the CIA Agent’s Name Is a Real Story

    According to the AP, a CIA agent’s name was leaked by the White House . The AP calls it an “embarrassing flub” even though it was a crime when an aide in the Bush administration leaked the name of part-time agent Valerie Plame. What’s given little attention in the story is the fact that the Washington Post reporter who wrote the story sent his copy to the White House to be checked for “accuracy.” ... First of all, any reporter worth his salt would not depend on the subject he’s reporting on to verify accuracy. That’s just crazy. He’d make...

    Slavery is when human beings are owned by other human beings, used and often abused like animals, and taken advantage of all in pursuit of profit, either financially or for power. Slaves rarely were able to escape, and those who did often had to remain in hiding or in fear for their entire lives. Slaves who could not escape were doomed to toil, and frequently their children and grandchildren suffered the same fate. According to MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry, the National Basketball Association is just like this. Never mind that NBA players make millions of dollars every year. Never mind that,...
