Videos: Obama Lied About Troops on the Ground in Libya

This author has observed, "If the media wanted to conserve resources, they could simply fuse the words 'The Obama administration lied' to the opening line of each day’s edition and fill in the blank appropriately." Today proved no exception. Despite President Barack Obama's assurances that no ground troops would ever be sent to Libya, the Pentagon confirmed Monday that U.S. soldiers are on the … [Read more...]

Federal Employees Say Inept Obama Officials Politicize Their Agencies

by Ben Johnson Barack Obama’s political appointees are inept, incapable, and needlessly politicize the basic functions of whole segments of the federal government. That is not the assessment of firebrand conservatives but the result of a recent survey of high-placed career federal employees. The survey, conducted by the Government Business Council, polled 148 Senior Executive Service … [Read more...]

Flashback: Obama Wanted a Nuremberg Trial for Osama

When the most finely trained military/intelligence team in America finally killed Osama bin Laden, MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell sent an embarrassingly misspelled tweet that informed the world, “Obama shot and killed.” However, MSNBC inadvertently allowed some truth to slip through its reporting of the assassination. The left-wing network quoted “a senior official in the Obama administration” admitting … [Read more...]

Stupid Defenseless Initiative

MANY COMMENTATORS HAVE WONDERED WHAT CONCESSIONS BARACK OBAMA WRUNG out of the Russian leadership in exchange for canceling a major missile defense initiative in Eastern Europe this week. Some have speculated he attained, or at least sought, cooperation in stifling Iran’s nuclear program. Unfortunately, it appears the president sold out two close allies, rewarded Moscow’s belligerence, and … [Read more...]

(Character) Assassination

The source of the Left's outrage. The old definition of a Puritan is a person who is constantly worried that somewhere, someone is having a good time. The new definition of a “Progressive” should be a person who worries that somewhere, someone is trying to kill terrorists. Rachel Maddow fit the bill last night on MSNBC. Maddow mentioned a new wrinkle in the covert CIA concept that … [Read more...]

MSNBC: Ed Schultz Knows the English Language

Ed Schultz, the Left’s spokesperson fer jest-plain-folks, attempted to belittle Karl Rove on “Psycho Talk” but ended up belittling himself. He singled out an interview Rove did on Fox News about the dangers of giving far-Left Congressmen classified information. In that, Rove noted the anger leftists had over not being briefed about a CIA proposal that was never operational. Schultz singled … [Read more...]

MSNBC: Chris Matthews’ Fantasy about Bush/Cheney Wrongdoing

On his Monday program, Chris Matthews would have produced gales of laughter if only he had had a live audience – and if only leftists had a sense of humor. Indeed, his guests’ vapid, conspiracy-mongering exchanges would have been serial moments of unintended hilarity. As it stands, Matthews, David Corn, and Ron Suskind merely demonstrated again the way the Left builds its sure pronouncements of … [Read more...]

MSNBC: Nancy Pelosi’s Phantom Vindication

Anyone searching for an explanation of why the mass media’s coverage is typically so far off-base could begin with Howard Fineman’s performance on Countdown with Keith Olbermann last night. Olbermann, who never lets any facts interfere with his political grandstanding, was busy misrepresenting the CIA’s reaction to the letter seven Democrats wrote to director Leon Panetta. (Read the details in … [Read more...]

Demonizing Panetta’s CIA

The letter seven members of the House Intelligence Committee signed and promptly released to the media is at once blatant lobbying for an amendment that would expand Congressional access to classified intelligence and a potent example of its dangers. When the majority of Democrats on the most sensitive committee in Congress are disposed to leak a briefing in order to stigmatize the CIA, it is a … [Read more...]

Al-Qaeda’s PR Machine

IF HISTORY IS ANY GUIDE, A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND JIHADISTS. In 2004, after the media published photos of Abu Ghraib and leftist politicians blamed America, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi prefaced his beheading of Nicholas Berg with these words: "we tell you that the dignity of the Muslim men and women in Abu Ghraib and others is not redeemed except by blood and souls. You will not receive … [Read more...]
