  • Maybe Journalists Should Stop Inciting Racism? (vanity)

    08/26/2015 11:48:50 AM PDT · by conservativeimage.com · 18 replies
    Red Fox
    The liberal media has been fueling racial violence for years, publishing lies about Trayvon Martin, Hands Up Don't Shoot, the Baltimore riots, etc. It's only ironic that reporters are now the victims of the very monsters they helped to create. Alison Parker and Adam Ward were members of a fraternity that has been complicit in keeping our society honest. Maybe this double murder in Virginia of two unarmed white journalists by a black man with a gun is the wake up call they need to start doing their job and hold people accountable?
  • Fear the Walking Dead is the biggest cable series premiere ever

    Entertainment Weekly ^ | 24 Aug 15 | James Hibberd
    AMC has absolutely nothing to fear from Sunday night’s ratings. The network’s The Walking Dead companion series got off to a huge start. The 90-minute series premiere of Fear the Walking Dead delivered 10.1 million viewers and an incredible 6.3 rating among adults 18-49. That makes Fear the biggest series premiere in cable TV history in both total viewers and key demos. “Thank you and congratulations to Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson, the brilliant executive producers and the entire cast and crew of Fear the Walking Dead,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC. “It is increasingly difficult to evaluate a show’s...

    The New American ^ | 25 August 2015 | Steve Byas
    ˇAdios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole, by Ann Coulter, Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, 2015, 400 pages, hardcover. Ann Coulter cares little for political correctness, and her sharp tongue generates enemies at both ends of the political spectrum. To many constitutional conservatives, for example, her foreign policy views are too aligned with the neoconservatives who led the United States into the Iraq mess under President Bush. Writing in May, Coulter still defended the decision to go into Iraq: “There were lots of reasons to get rid of Saddam Hus­sein and none to...

    I'm getting pretty tired of this line and I'd like to point out how ridiculous it actually is, by way of analogy. Ever been on the highway? Ever notice all those folks going over the speed limit? (I'm one of them, by the way.) Imagine if the govt broadcast "We can't possibly pull over millions of speeders every day!" and, to top it off, make good on not doing it. I believe you'd be seeing a lot more speeders on the road. Especially if they never see anyone getting pulled over for it. Since it is actually true that there...

    Watch this video interview closely. It aired tonight on the Megyn Kelly show. Do you spot the two “tell tale” moments. [ Hint: how Kelly ended the interview of Senator Ted Cruz is a big one. ] Megyn “too-cute-by-half” Kelly has been preparing for, and refining, her debate moderator approach. This segment gives insight into what her approach will be toward Donald Trump, she can’t hide it. As previously stated: It would appear Kelly has an interest in spotlighting Trump around an inferred position of sexism. This is transparently not accidental. Kelly has a history of self-promotion by making herself...

    Hopefully a group of unfortunate Boston Red Sox fans took their ball caps off in time. After being asked to rise for the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner, a sick – possibly inebriated – fan vomited over the second railing at Fenway Park while his buddies watched in amusement. The fan's puke plummeted multiple storeys before appearing to land on unsuspecting fans seated below. After one fan lost his lunch, the Red Sox went on to lose 9-2 to the visiting Chicago White Sox. Considering some stadium dustups happen as a result of spilt beer, we're guessing this didn't go...

    OK. I may be missing something here. But back in high school, when I took a course in Business Law, I learned that in order to be enforceable, a contract requires that there be consideration in exchange for value. So if you and I sign a document saying that you will paint my house on a particular date, and you don't show up, I can't sue you for breach of contract unless the document indicated that you were to receive some type of consideration in exchange for painting my house. So my question is: What consideration did Iran give the...

Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was apart of a larger more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government wouldn’t...

    Once again, KFC has shown how far it is willing to go to incorporate chicken into everything we eat. The company introduced the "Chizza" via social media in the Philippines early in July saying, "Thick crust, thin crust. Don't think about it. We have our chicken as the pizza crust." Yes, that's right. KFC's signature chicken is now a pizza crust. This is not the company's first foray into hybrid foods. In 2010, KFC offered the Double Down sandwich, a bacon and cheese sandwich with two pieces of fried chicken as the bread. And let's not forget earlier this year,...

    The symptoms of the prion disease are beginning to become so obvious that even some of our more prominent pundits are beginning to notice them. For example, even former Karl Rove life-coach Ron Fournier has noticed the severe lack of Abraham Lincolns in the current GOP presidential candidates. And noted climate-denialist and baseball drone George Effing Will has staked out the bold position that many of these candidates have gone so far around the bend that they've crossed some kind of termination barrier. It is, therefore, especially disheartening that Cruz, who clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist and who is...

Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work. The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the...

    Just because you’re not interested in politics doesn’t mean politics isn’t interested in you. Americans seem to have forgotten this dictum.

It paints a melancholy picture about the abysmal state of knowledge the U.S. public possesses on public affairs – the more so when you reflect that self-selection was probably present. In other words, you probably are brighter than Joe Sixpack if you could be bothered to take the test in the first place. Most people knew who Martin Luther King...

John Burris, was vying for a state Senate seat that was also being contested by newcomer Scott Flippo. Like Virginia, candidate spending was lopsided with the presumed favorite Burris heavily outspending the challenger. But in the end, the race appears to have hinged on one thing above all else: Burris’...

The request came from NFL officials who felt it was too difficult to pull off a completely live performance because of potential sound issues.

    Webster’s defines a dupe as “one who is easily deceived.” But a misperception prevails among most people. They think of dupes as ignorant people only. On the contrary, there are large amounts of intelligent dupes in all societies. Brains are no protection against dupery. In fact, I would classify dupery as one of the deadly sins that curse all men and women no matter what level of class and smarts they possess. Dictatorships depend upon dupery to perpetuate themselves – especially dupery among the intelligentsia. There are, in this writer’s opinion, three forms of dupery afflicting the human race, or...

    A few months ago the Atlantic explained why no one should oppose extensions to unemployment insurance. The unemployed were jobless through no fault of their own. There were three applicants to every job but not enough jobs. There wasn’t enough demand for labor. The labor market was “broken,” it explained. What was needed was to create a demand for jobs.

Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it...
