Josh Marshall and TalkingPointsMemo: Russian Separatists Are Just Like Tea Partiers
The fog of war still obscures many of the events surrounding MH17 and it’s still too early to draw any hard conclusions about what occurred, but in the age of instant information, everyone is dissecting the smallest bit of information, however well or poorly verified it might be. Today the lazy and not-very-bright Josh Marshall waded into these waters, with predictable results: Following up on | Read More »
Barbours unapologetic for racial tone of ads
This piece at National Review has quite a few interesting things to note about the involvement of Haley Barbour’s political machine in action in Mississippi. The political-action committee that aired the ads raised eyebrows from the outset. For one thing, it had the same address, phone number, e-mail domain, and leader — the bishop Ronnie Crudup — as the Jackson-based New Horizon Church International. Crudup told Mississippi’s Clarion-Ledger earlier | Read More »
“It may be a terrible tragedy”: Flight MH-17 and the overweening narcissism of Barack Obama
Yesterday, as the wreckage of Malaysian Air Flight MH-17 lay burning in a field in eastern Ukraine, President Obama was attending a fundraiser in Delaware. As many, including my colleague RMJ, have noted. This was not a great moment in the history of the presidency. From the White House transcript: THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody! (Applause.)

Vox.com employs anti-Israel propagandists
Everybody’s making fun of voxster Zack Beauchamp these days, even Moe Lane pitched in (thanks Moe). The dynamic dumbasses Beauchamp and Fisher have published more lies per column-inch than anyone since Goebbels and Fritsche.
While many thinking people pass this off as simple laziness or stupidity, I suggest here’s a darker motive here. Beauchamp and Fisher are propagandists, and they hate Israel. Since February this year, Zack Beauchamp and Max Fisher have made a name for themselves on vox.com as Hamas apologists and Israel bashers. Before that, they were with the Washington Post, hardly a love den for Israel (WaPo recently published one of the most offensive animations I’ve seen online in Post-TV).

The Media’s Attempts to Troll America on Palestine Have Failed
It is difficult to find a subject on which the Western media is more monolithic in its view than the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Despite the uncontroverted fact that the latest round of fighting – like virtually all the other rounds of fighting – was unquestionably started by the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians have rejected a cease fire, the media are | Read More »
The Korean Air Flight vs. The Malaysian Air Flight
President Obama spoke for 38 or so seconds yesterday after learning that a Malaysian Air flight had been shot down over Ukraine. In the process, he said in those 38 seconds that a plane falling from the sky “may be” a tragedy. Conservatives were quick to point out Ronald Reagan’s response to the Korean Air 007 flight in 1983. The shoot down was September 1, | Read More »
Barack Obama On A Shot Down Plane Vs. Ronald Reagan
People say the meanest things about Our Glorious Lead, Oops I mean President Barack Obama. They accuse him of golfing too much and caring too little. Some have even suggested that he has checked out 2 ½ years before he’s supposed to relinquish the Presidency. Today he had a chance to change all that. A Malaysian Airliner was shot down over Ukrainian airspace and it | Read More »

House border task force prepares alternative to Obama $3.7 billion boondoggle
When Barack Obama requested the Congress approve a mammoth $3.7 billion appropriation to deal with the Obama created crisis on our southern border, the House GOP was underwhelmed. The general distribution of the funds request was: And is seemed as though that the bill, as presented, was dead on arrival: Leading congressional Republicans dug in Sunday on their view that President Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency | Read More »
The Next Front in the Battle over Obamacare
**Promoted from the diaries. – Aaron** You may be seeing a concerted attempt by liberals and their media allies to convince you that Obamacare is 1) succeeding; 2) losing political impact for the midterms; and 3) being emphasized less frequently by Republicans on the campaign trail. In fact, all three of these are false. Just this week, we are seeing the latest front in the | Read More »
