    The Koch brothers might be part of buying Time magazine, and a former Time science editor is so panicked he wrote an article for the leftist magazine The Nation titled "Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy Time Magazine." Charles Alexander wrote about how his life’s work of screaming environmental bias may be about to go down the drain: Can you imagine what it would be like to see your life’s work suddenly go down the drain? I can—right now. As a former Time editor who spent 13 years editing the magazine’s coverage of environmental issues, I am in despair over...

    Joe Scarborough turns his lonely eyes... to Fox News?? Looks that way. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough dreamed of a scenario in which Fox News would turn against President Trump, thus bringing down his presidency. Scarborough analogized it to a "Cronkite moment." That was the time in 1968 when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite essentially declared the Vietnam War unwinnable. LBJ was reported to have said at the time, if Ive lost Cronkite, Ive lost Middle America. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesnt like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left-wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Heres my list of the 10 most destructive Americans...

    I was watching Life, Liberty, & Levin with Mark Levin interviewing Dr. Paul Kengor and the first 29 minutes are well worth your time.41:18 - On Sunday, Mark and Senior Director of The Center for Vision and Values, Dr. Paul Kengor. They discussed the Soviet collusion, from a Democrat style. Let's start with the english translation of the KGB Letter of May 14, 1983 written by Viktor Chebrikov to Andropov. It can be found in Dr. Paul Kengor's book, Dupes: How America's Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a CenturyThe Appendix of the book includes the KGB memo in both...

    In 1999 at the UN, Walter Cronkite declared his support and allegiance to a one-world government. He blamed the refusal of the U.S. Congress to ratify one-world-government treaties on a handful of obdurate senators who pander to the Christian Coalition and the religious right wing. Identifying Pat Robertson as the leader of the Christian Coalition, Cronkite quoted Robertson, that any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the Devil. Cronkite then mocked Robertson by declaring, Im glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.

    It is wrong to speak ill of the dead. On the other hand, it is an insult to the intelligence of the American people to pretend that Walter Cronkite was the voice of God and universally credible, as Mara Liasson put it on Fox News Sunday. The terrible truth is that Walter Cronkite symbolized liberal media bias and used that bias with disastrous consequences for our nation and the world. His latest cause was world government and the destruction of American sovereignty.

    ".....To say that we are closer to victory today is to believe in the face of the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past. To suggest that we are on the edge of defeat is to yield to unreasonable pessimism. To say that we are mired in stalemate seems the only realistic if unsatifactory conclusion. On the off chance that military and political analysts are right, in the next few months we must test the enemy's intentions, in case this is indeeed his last big gasp before negotiations.

    But buried in the dusty archives of CBS News was another Cronkite report from Saigon broadcast days earlier nearly two weeks earlier to be exact. The lost Feb. 13 clip, shows Cronkite had a much different and unambiguous view of the recent Tet battlefront immediately after it was over. First and simplest, the Viet Cong suffered a military defeat, he reported. Its missions proved suicidal. If they had intended to stay in the cities as a negotiating point, they failed at that. The Vietnamese army reacted better than even its most ardent supporters had anticipated. There were no defections...

    The subject head of the document, carried under the words, “Special Importance,” read: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary of the Communist Party Y. V. Andropov.” According to the memo, Senator Kennedy was “very troubled” by U.S.-Soviet relations, which Kennedy attributed not to the murderous tyrant running the USSR but to President Reagan. The problem was Reagan’s “belligerence,” said the memo, and made worse by Reagan’s stubbornness. “According to Kennedy,” reported Chebrikov, “the current threat is due to the President’s refusal to engage any modification to his politics.” That refusal, said the memo, was exacerbated by Reagan’s political...

    They hailed from all Christian denominations and backgrounds, coming by the hundreds to defend their faith. More than a thousand Christians rallied in Oklahoma City to protest a long-scheduled blasphemous ceremony designed to mock Mary, the mother of Jesus. Though the black mass ritual took place as planned, the protests seemed to have an effect, as few attended the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall to witness a ritual entitled The Consumption of Mary performed by the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, a group of devil-worshipers. The Catholic group the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property was...

REUTERS/Jim Bourg The White House announced on Wednesday that neither President Barack Obama or first lady Michelle Obama will be attending the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. While Justice Scalia’s funeral apparently doesn’t warrant Obama’s presence, here are six funerals that did. Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI) Less than two months before the 2012 election, both Obamas took time out of their schedule to attend the...

    During the Overtime online edition of HBOs Real Time, host Bill Maher posited that President Obama moderates his political positions out of fear of being assassinated, leading to a panel-wide battle over whether Americans are subconsciously racist against the president. While lamenting with Oliver Stone about the short political career of John F. Kennedy, Maher suggested that bold leaders like JFK always seem to, at the end of the day, get cut out of the picture, violently or otherwise. And maybe that is why Barack Obama is more of a centrist than we want him to be? You think that?

Its it had to be some silly little Communist. Jacqueline Kennedy, Nov. 22, 1963 She thought it robbed his death of any meaning. But a meaning would be quickly manufactured to serve a new politics.

    Reporters covering the investigation of the major al Qaeda victory at Benghazi should ask themselves: "what would Walter Cronkite do" if he were covering the story. Let's consider the facts. Most people familiar with the War on Terror knew in September, 2012, that there was a heightened risk of an al Qaeda attack in the U.S. or at American installations outside the U.S. on or about the anniversary of the original 9/11 attack. The danger was particularly high at American facilities in Libya because of the very unstable situation there and the presence of al Qaeda personnel who were trying...

    In the early 1970s, the most trusted man in America did a very untrustworthy thing. Unbeknownst to the millions who tuned in religiously to the CBS Evening News, Walter Cronkite cut a deal with Pan Am to fly his family to vacation spots around the world. Together with a handful of friends, they roamed from the South Pacific to Haiti, with Cronkite snorkeling, swimming, and drinking, thanks to a friend at the airline. According to Douglas Brinkleys sweeping and masterful biography Cronkite, the news division president, Dick Salant, was upset at what he deemed a blatant conflict of interest, but...
