Don’t look now, but Democrats have a nasty War on Women scandal unfolding in Maine and they most certainly don’t want you to know about it. What coverage there is about a vulgar rap video sexually demeaning Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) is intended to absolve the Democratic Party of any wrongdoing.
If only it were that simple. The problem is, their fingerprints are all over it.
And even Republicans are strangely reluctant to distribute the clip, maintaining a private setting on YouTube. But that hasn’t stopped CBS News and other outlets from embedding the clip, nor will it prevent us from sharing what is important for the public to know: Read all »
When Islamic thugs succeed in taking over the world, at least one country will be safe: Australia. While Obama fiddles and the situation deteriorates, authorities there aren’t messing around, wiping out a suspected random public beheading plot.
If carried out, the resulting horror would have been incalculable, causing panic in the streets as victims are chosen by chance.
Tonight’s lesson learned: never panic over one lousy poll.
In recent weeks, you’d be forgiven for believing Scotland was ready to bolt from the United Kingdom thanks to a groundswell of support for the independence cause. Though that’s how the media portrayed the contest, the reality is quite different: No was well ahead in nearly every poll.
There was just one exception, a rogue pollster that had London in a panic and the media in overdrive. Its release sent the British government into a state of chaos, with sudden (and dangerous) promises of new power for Scotland should it choose to remain in the UK. With the results still being counted, new political divisions are already apparent. Read all »
UPDATE: TWO new CNN blunders! These guys are on a roll!
Another day, yet another CNN screw-up. This time, alert viewers (a rare animal when it comes to the beleaguered cable news outlet) caught poll results that just didn’t add up.
While we know Scotland has put its all into the independence debate, without phantom voters, there’s no way to reach 110% of the electorate.
Is there anything more amusing than the union-led circus outside Ryan Seacrest’s Hollywood offices? The allegedly talented star (of what exactly, again?) is facing International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees (IATSE) pickets over labor practices on one of his reality shows, Shahs of Sunset.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy (wait, is Seacrest human or android, somebody should check).
Somewhere around 10pm EDT, we should have some idea whether Scotland voters have gone for independence or opted to remain within the United Kingdom. Though a late poll has No (to independence) in the lead, it’s too early to tell what will occur.
In the meantime, there’s little to do other than wait for results and hope the people of Scotland can see just how dangerous breaking apart would be in terms of national (and global!) security, economics and more. Read all »
What was supposed to be a debate over NFL running back Adrian Peterson’s child abuse indictment took an unexpected turn last night as host Sean Hannity revealed he’d repeatedly been disciplined with a belt as a child.
Saying “I deserved it” and “I was a troubled kid”, Hannity repeatedly discussed the corporal punishment in his family home growing up and compared it with Peterson’s alleged use of a “switch” on his son. As the segment continued, the Fox News Channel talker’s own story seemed to overshadow that of the now-suspended Minnesota Vikings player. Read all »
After her previous tenure on The View ended embarrassingly, you’d think Rosie O’Donnell might have done her homework before returning to the show.
But Noooooo, Rosie still allows her mouth to get ahead of her brain, with predictable results. During yesterday’s edition of the ABC morning show, O’Donnell was stumped when syndicated columnist / author / TV pundit Charles Krauthammer came up in the discussion.
O’Donnell had never heard of him. While he’s not a household word by any means, Krauthammer’s name is universally known within the world of politics. And that’s where Rosie once again demonstrated just how little she knows. Read all »
In retrospect, was it really a good idea to allow public schools in Florida to distribute religious material? It was only a matter of time before a fringe group would take advantage of the opportunity to gain undeserved access to mainstream society.
And that’s exactly what has happened as the Satanic Temple has “flooded” them with activity books designed to teach acceptance of the Dark Side. Parents, time for a backpack check!
At a time when liberals and conservatives live almost entirely apart from one another, one of the few remaining opportunities for “debate” is on the highways. You’ve no doubt seen “progressive” bumper stickers filling up every available square inch of the Prius in front of you, with none more obnoxious than the “Coexist” variety.
How exactly are we to “coexist” with extremists who will stop at nothing to kill us all? It’s a question the lefties have never been willing or able to answer.
But it was only a matter of time before conservatives would fight back with their own version. Read all »
