The Van Jones Blame Game: It’s Not Me, It’s Them
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator, Mike Haltman The Art Of Zero Personal Accountability In Washington As In Society As A Whole, Or, Who Can I Pin My Self Created Problems On? Van Jones: Selfless Patriot? No Apologies! Not His Fault. Blame The Right! “I came here to fight for others, not for myself,” Jones said. “I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues | Read More »

January 20, Year 20 AO
Early morning sunlight flashed in Bill’s face, which wrinkled in irritation. He rolled on his back, leaving the worst of the light on his shoulder but too late; the sun had done its job. He was awake. He lay there for another minute or two but finally caved in to the inevitable, threw the heavy blankets aside and sat up, dropping his feet to the | Read More »
The Mainstream Media’s Roll in Obama’s Health Reform Troubles
The media has been using White House talking points to sell President Obama’s health reform plan, and it has had the opposite effect — polls are dropping. President Obama is worse off than GW Bush was at this point in the Bush presidency, and on health care, President Obama is sinking even faster. What the media fails to realize is that their non-critical reporting on | Read More »
Washington Post sells out, literally
The journalistic integrity of the Washington Post has been suspect at best through the election cycles of late, offering frequent puff pieces for Obama, hit pieces on Republicans, and generally echoing in lockstep Democrat party talking points while ignoring newsworthy matters that would benefit the GOP. It is a blatantly partisan paper with a thin veneer of journalistic integrity in its editorial decision making. More | Read More »
Hey GOP: Stop Acting Like A Woman Defending Her Family AND Her Convictions is a Bad Thing!
As the GOP sits comfortably in its political grave, it still fails to learn its lesson. Like the loser kid at school desperately seeking the approval of the schoolyard bully, the GOP continues to apologize for itself, shrink up like a flower in the scorching desert sun, and take swipes at its own members in an attempt to deflect any incoming venom from the bully | Read More »
Hypocrisy Double Standard
Recent admissions of extramarital affairs by Mark Sanford and John Ensign resulted in heavy media coverage and constant generalizations about Republicans’ hypocrisy concerning family values. The mainstream media’s fascination with GOP affairs is likely fueled, not by a desire to “get” Republicans, but by a worldview that makes it difficult to view those who preach conservative social values as sincere. That said, it’s fair for | Read More »
Good Men and the Mainstream Media
Sanford and Ensign are the latest moral casualties in the Republican Party, and we can be sure that the mainstream media will continue to chase every possible rabbit trail to collect all the gory details. Many are pointing out that these same reporters are largely indifferent to the moral failings (or illegal dealings) of their friends on the liberal side, so the double standard being | Read More »
Kudos to a Competent Journalist
National Review did all of us who are fed up with the over-the-top media bias a service by not only highlighting Tapper as a solid competent member of the media, but also by reminding us that one can’t just complain about those who do a poor job, and that it may be even more important that we applaud and encourage those who are competent than it is to gripe about those whose bias is so obsurd and obvious.

Man Bites Dog
Or something like that–journalists realize that they actually have to be tough on Obama. Better late than never, I suppose. But they should have realized this during the campaign. Oh, and speaking of which . . . It’s fun watching reality dawn on these people.
“Welcome to my Abyss” said the Spider to the Fly
By Rose Pedenko and Tanya Simon“When you look long into an abyss, the abyss looks into you.” – Friedrich NietzscheIrony never fails to slip through the cracks in our lives at some of the bleakest moments – like the black widow that entrenches itself in damp crevices and awaits its prey, closing in on it in ever-tightening circles.When the moment is ripe, irony rears its | Read More »
Thank Goodness It’s Over
The election is over…the uncertainty is over. We now know the probable fate of our nation. President elect Barack Obama has been chosen by 52% of this nation to be our 44th president. So be it. It is now time to move forward.I am quite surprised at how at peace I feel. I thought for sure that I would be livid if Obama won the | Read More »
Red Ties v. Blue Ties
Watching Fox News last night, I noticed something very interesting. Almost every male reporter/anchor wore a red tie. By almost, I can honestly say, every SINGLE one that I saw during election coverage, was in fact wearing a red tie.
Are House Democrats Covering Up Crimes?
House Democrats have washed their hands of Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL) as quickly as their Republican predecessors disowned Mark Foley (R-FL). But where Denis Hastert, John Boehner and other Republican leaders were hounded by questions about what they knew of the Foley matter, the press is giving Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emanuel, Chris Van Hollen and others a free ride.
“Sarah Palin is a %#$@” t-shirts and McCain’s statement
We’ve all heard about the anger at McCain rallies from all the mainstream media sources and some of it is legitimate criticism but have you heard about the things that are going on at Obama rallies? I haven’t heard much and until McCain mentioned it at the last debate, I didn’t know that some were wearing “Sarah Palin is a #$%&” t-shirts and that these | Read More »
A Tale of Two Vettings
In response to Stanley Kurtz’s detailed story on Barack Obama’s role in working with unrepentant terrorist and left-wing radical Bill Ayers to arrange the financing for a project that “poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists” under Ayers’ dubious theory of treating left-wing political activism as “education” (a story I discussed at length here), Marc Aimbinder wants | Read More »
