Smoke and Fire in Benghazi

September 7, 2014

You know the old saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  The September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was just such a story.  The Obama Administration’s reaction to it seemed odd (like they were hiding something), and anyone could have figured that this terrorist attack (less than two months before a [...]

The Establishment War on Ted Cruz

September 23, 2013

Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace interviewed Texas Senator Ted Cruz this weekend with an interesting twist.  Wallace admitted to Karl Rove that …As soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions — not from Democrats, but from top Republicans — to hammer Cruz. Why are [...]

It’s August — Town Hall Time!!!

August 9, 2013

In August, Congress is in recess and some members actually hear from their constituents, traditionally in a town hall format.  It’s great seeing regular people speak truth to power, watching our elected officials squirm, pander or agree with that frustration.  Here’s a snippet from a Maryland town hall reported by Fox: At the end of [...]

Major al Qaeda Terror Plot Allegedly Upon Us

August 4, 2013

Happy 52nd birthday, Mr. President.  Unfortunately, there’s an apparently “strategically significant” terror plot which reports indicate is pretty much ready to go!  Twenty-two embassies and consulates were closed down in anticipation of this attack, so I’m glad the President could get in a quick game of golf yesterday in the midst of all this. One [...]

Rush Limbaugh’s Great Interview on Greta

July 31, 2013

Rush Limbaugh generally doesn’t like TV interviews, but seems to always make an exception for Fox’s Greta Van Susteren once in a while.  Yesterday, Rush sat down for over an hour for an interview, which essentially summarized what he’s been saying on the radio since February.  Here’s most of the interview on video. For those [...]

NSA Surveillance Programs Wreak Havoc on Liberty

June 7, 2013

The National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting data from (at the every least) Verizon to data-mine billions of phone calls in order to prevent future terror attacks — and they’ve been doing it for seven years (BTW if that’s the case, then they really dropped the ball in Boston, didn’t they)! It’s not just [...]

House Mulling Perjury Charge Against AG Holder

May 28, 2013

Attorney General Eric Holder testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on May 15 that he didn’t know about the Justice Department’s investigation of Fox News’ James Rosen.  When pushed by a Democrat to relate the DOJ’s behavior to the 1917 Espionage Act, Holder said: “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for [...]

Sandy Victim Rant on Cavuto Nails It

January 5, 2013

This interview with Hurricane Sandy victim Scott McGrath aired on Neil Cavuto’s show yesterday — it really captures the frustration working people have with our dysfunctional government and administrative state.  Check it out: There’s really not much to add other than that there is a middle class protest movement railing against the government ruining our [...]

Jim DeMint is Leaving the Senate

December 6, 2012

As if the situation for conservatives in Congress couldn’t get any worse, it just did.  Jim DeMint, South Carolina Senator and Tea Party bulwark in Congress, is resigning from the Senate in order to head the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.  DeMint should have waited until tomorrow, December 7, for this kind of bombshell [...]

Obama Redux

November 7, 2012

At about 11:14pm last evening, Fox News called Ohio for Obama.  Only being a matter of time before the gig was up and Obama’s reelection was official, I subsequently went to bed with a splitting headache and a deep sense of foreboding about the direction the American people are choosing to go.  I’ve spent the [...]

God Returns to Democrat Platform

September 5, 2012

After yesterday’s crazy exchange between Senator Dick Durbin and Fox’s Bret Baier, the Dems must have thought about the political fallout from the DNC’s exorcism of the word “God” and omitting the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from their official platform. So, God’s been resurrected by the delegates, eliciting boos from a crowd that [...]

Carney vs. Baier on Fox News

April 4, 2012

Yesterday, Fox News’ Special Report host Bret Baier had White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on to talk about the President’s budget and a few other issues.  The following exchange took place: Baier had a solid, legitimate point and Carney decided to get defensive immediately, filibustering the question.  Granted, if my job was to defend [...]

Movie Review — The Hunger Games

March 25, 2012

There was so much buzz at school (and on Fox News all week) about the latest popular-tween-book-series-gone-big-screen pilot The Hunger Games that I had to check it out this weekend.  Here’s the trailer: I knew very little about the world of The Hunger Games going into this film so I had few expectations except 1) [...]

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Entertains on Fox This Morning

December 12, 2011

Here is the DNC chair on Fox this morning trying to spin the Dems potential 2012 message on the economy: I like how Gretchen Carlson stuck to her guns allowing DWS to step in it a few times.  Yet, there is surface truth to DWS’s claim that unemployment has technically dropped from its historic highs [...]

Perry Judges Conservative Hearts on In-state Tuition for Illegals

September 23, 2011

In the Fox News/Google GOP Debate last night Perry said the following: And I thought just liberals called responsible conservative positions heartless! Not anymore, apparently. This is Governor Gardasil‘s second substantial strike against him as far as I’m concerned.  First, this is a distracting social issue position that only helps Democrats by taking the focus [...]

“Fast and Furious” Scandal Keeps Growing

September 3, 2011

Apparently, the White House knew more than they were letting on about “Fast and Furious” in the days after a border patrol agent Brian Terry was shot and killed by one of the guns clandestinely sold to Mexican drug gangs.  The White House obviously disputes any new issues which have arisen from the newly discovered [...]

We now have an answer to who or what is going to replace Glenn Beck on Fox News at the 5pm slot:  “The Five“. Essentially, there are five panelists who each lead a discussion on at least five topics the press is talking about that day. Today, the panelists were Eric Bolling who was my [...]

The Glenn Beck Show Ends

June 30, 2011

After 29 months, Glenn Beck just finished his final show on the Fox News Channel.  Deciding that he needs to move on from TV and leave with his soul, Beck will continue his struggle to restore America as best he can using other mediums. I’m going to miss his show, even more than when Rush [...]

No Huck in 2012

May 15, 2011

On his Fox News show last night, Mike Huckabee announced that he’s decided not to make a run for the Republican nomination in 2012. The writing was on the wall:  you’d think that such a major announcement would take place at a time when people are paying attention… say not towards the tail-end of your [...]

Glenn Beck to Leave Fox Full-time

April 7, 2011

Yesterday, Beck addressed his audience regarding the rumors about him leaving Fox News.  Here’s the link of the announcement in his own words.  Some people are sad, some are reveling in it.  In the meantime, Beck should still be on live at 5pm for a few more months. While the occasional crying, the periods of [...]

Early Pessimism about the New Republican Congress

January 2, 2011

Only two days into 2011 and with two days until the Republicans actually take over the House of Representatives, here’s a story from Fox News that pessimistically poses the Republicans as likely failures:  they won’t get along with Obama;  they will under-deliver on their promised cuts;  they won’t be able to maintain discipline even within [...]

Jay Rockefeller’s Statist “Bug”

November 18, 2010

In a way, political polarization can be a good thing because it gets rid of the blurriness between the sides:  are you for more speech or less?  more government or less?  more personal freedoms or less? etc.  Here is liberal West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller on the issue of speech on cable news: Get rid [...]

Juan Williams Fired from NPR

October 21, 2010

Juan Williams has always been a stand-up guy and proud liberal too (odd combo these days).  I usually disagree with him, but he articulates the Left’s position on most issues and is a valuable source of balance for a network like Fox News which tries to have balanced opinions/coverage. Williams, in fact, is such a [...]

Contrast in Connecticut Over How to Create a Job

October 5, 2010

Last night, Fox sponsored a debate between Democrat Dick Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon for Chris Dodd’s old Senate seat.  During the debate McMahon asks her opponent how one creates a job.  I don’t think anyone could find a more stark contrast between the lib perspective and the conservative one: We all know who won [...]

NAACP Snafu Revisited

July 22, 2010

Yesterday, the administration and the NAACP were in total damage-control mode as the Sherrod video exposed much more than just her racist comments taken out of context:  the NAACP released apologies and full tapes, while the administration was offering Sherrod her job back, and the MSM was predictably blaming the messenger — I even heard [...]

The NAACP’s Racist Snafu

July 20, 2010

So here’s a little hypocrisy for you:  The NAACP decided last week to scold the Tea Party for alleged racism within the ranks of the new movement, but didn’t have much to say about a racist recently speaking to their own ranks until that person was exposed. Here’s Shirley Sherrod, the USDA’s Director of Rural [...]

Simon Cowell, Tory

May 27, 2010

Simon Cowell signed off for the last time on American Idol‘s finale last night (no, I didn’t watch it either).  Well, Cowell did a round of interviews which exposed him as a Conservative Party supporter earlier this month, which was mentioned once again in a Fox News interview he did this week. Understanding debt and [...]

Is the Left Finally Seeing Obama’s Incompetence?

May 24, 2010

At least Fox News liberal correspondent Kirsten Powers is.  Recently on Fox News opposite the always-pithy Ann Coulter, Powers described the Obama Administration’s response to the BP oil spill as “not about campaign donations” but “about incompetence.” Now, any chance we’ll see similar statements in the State-Run media, such as AP?  Nah… H/T: Gateway Pundit

Poll: Americans See Economic Collapse as Real Possibility

March 23, 2010

A new Fox News poll has 79% of the American people seeing an economic collapse in this country as a possibility.  The sample was taken last Tuesday and Wednesday of 900 registered voters.  While not a perfect poll sampling, it does reflect the substantial unease the public is feeling over the direction our country is [...]

Dems in 2010: New Year, Old Target

January 2, 2010

I laughed out loud when I saw this headline from Fox: “Desperate for Edge in Election Year, Dems Turn to Old Strategy.”  What strategy, you ask?  Let’s go through the old Democrat Playbook: Class warfare?  That’s a given.  Republicans are racist, homophobic neanderthals?  Not yet, but wait for it by summer.  Blame Bush?  Bingo! The [...]
