Last night, the country’s first “conservative” 24-hour news channel, the Sun News Network, went on the air at 5PM sharp.
‘Variety’ (indeed): Canada’s new TV channel ‘a scrappy, populist, conservative alternative’ has ‘upset lots of people’
Salon.com writer Glenn Greenwald is arguing, in fact, that Obama isn’t really a big fan of leftist (they call them “progressive”) outcomes. He points to Obama’s agreement with last week’s budget deal, as well as the President’s launch of a third Middle East war, as signs that Obama is (gasp!) more interested in getting re-elected than he is in real Hope and Change™. He says Obama is moving to the center, maybe even to the… Right!
The recent saga at Yale University — regarding a complaint to the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights by a group of female Yalies that the University “has failed to eliminate a hostile sexual environment on campus” — reminds me of the brouhaha over comments made by former Harvard University president Larry Summers.
America’s Cultural Future is in the Streets of Paris, America’s Political Future is the United Nations
We’ve seen where we’re heading today in this country and it’s the Parisian streets, with Muslims transforming prayer into an act of political intimidation and a politically correct government refusing to enforce the law against a favored minority group.
But this kind of thuggery has a political expression too and with the election of Barack Obama we’re starting to see its creep into our own political system. Look at the recent history of the United Nations and you’ll see an Islamist infiltration akin to the occupation of Paris’ streets.
From Little ACORNs: Maddow Loves The Community-Organizer-in-Chief’s Smug Budget Speech (True Twit, Part 15)
Hailing Obama’s budget address this week as “a victory for math” Rachel Maddow proclaimed that Obama had brought needed arguments to the table that were “sorely lacking.” Maybe she meant clarity of language like this, which would have George Orwell scratching his head: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA “… It calls for tax reform to cut about $1 trillion dollars in tax expenditures—spending in the tax code.” Guess what that means. Think it through. Give up? Maybe that’s because you don’t think every dime you have is at the good graces of government which “spends” it by letting you keep it.
Paul Krugman, economist and New York Times op-ed columnist, wrote a column today entitled “Let’s Not Be Civil.” He loves President Obama’s deficit reduction plan, which would essentially raise taxes on the so-called “wealthy,” cut Medicare funding for seniors by a half trillion dollars to pay for Obamacare, and rely on unspecified savings.
If a radical group closely associated with the president of the United States and known for its efforts to undermine American democracy were convicted in a massive voter fraud conspiracy you’d expect to hear something about it from the mainstream media, wouldn’t you? Wrong. Except for the odd FoxNews.com report and a few local reports there has been a media blackout.
