Ethics: Let’s Wrist-Slap These Folks Before The GOP Takes Over

July 31, 2010
By

Because they all do it and wouldn't care, otherwise. That's why Rangel is still good to go for his birthday fund raiser. They're laughing at the people, just like they always do. No justice, no peace. Throw...

Tea Party to Peggy Noonan: It’s not rage but disgust!

July 31, 2010
By

"Comical: Journolistas Matthews and Joan Walsh hurriedly retape 7 pm broadcast to change Sherrod narrative," twittered new-media mama grizzly Dana Loesch early morning, linking to John Nolte's Big Government post "Who Got to Chris Matthews?: 'Hardball' Defense of Breitbart Memory-Holed." The last throes of a dying Cultural Marxist meme?

They’re Still Watching You

July 31, 2010
By

Wow! Didn't realize the Watcher's Council was still watching. This has to be one of the longest Right-side link round-ups on the Internet. Several members submit best post nominations from on and off the council and they vote on them. Here's the main site with da rulez.

Breitbart: Ball’s In Your Court, Shirley

July 30, 2010
By

Andrew Breitbart weighs in on the Shirley Sherrod controversy via Newsweek. Read the whole thing. My take, Breitbart is showing himself to be a reasonable adult interested in resolving the thing, perhaps turning it into a position meeting of the minds, and negating the need for a lawsuit he's prepared to fight.

Shirley...

Sign Up, Now! You Too Can Be A Discriminated Against Black Farmer

July 30, 2010

From the People's Voice Weekly. Read the comments. Kind of, like - hey, I had an uncle who farmed, I think, back in the day. Or,...

Joan Walsh Is A Lying Coward

July 30, 2010
By

Joan Walsh simply wants to remain in her echo chamber having the discussion she wants to have. She isn't interested in an honest exchange over anything. In defense of Shirley Sherrod, Walsh made a post about Sherrod husband and Walsh hero, Charles Sherrod.

I responded to that post with Walsh's hero's words: "We...

Kasich Dominating New Media In Ohio Gov Race

July 30, 2010
By

Welcome to a new piece of the campaign puzzle several old line GOP campaign consultants fail to get. A candidate's new media presence impacts a race in many ways, not all of them obvious. It's nice to see Kasich doing well in this regard. It shows you where the energy and...

Recovery Summer: 2nd Qtr Economy Slowed, Below Forecasted

July 30, 2010
By

Unexpectedly, … the US economy failed to meet second quarter forecasts. We're now dependent on a surge in business investment Obama's policies do their utmost to discourage. Heckuva job, Barry. Heckuva job!

The U.S. economy slowed in the second quarter as a scarcity of jobs eroded consumer spending, leaving the rebound...

Corp Docs Reveal Sherrod’s New Communities Socialist Ties

July 30, 2010
By

Corporate documents for the Sherrod's New Communities can be found here. They include this 15 page reinstatement document in pdf and should include the original incorporation filing – but it appears to also be the reinstatement doc. Perhaps it's a replacement. You'll find the names in question listed on...

Taliban To Target Names Exposed By WikiLeaks

July 30, 2010
By

Nice way to hamstring operations, or get someone killed.

The U.S. military has already accused WikiLeaks of having "the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family" on its hands after leaking 92,000 classified documents. The Taliban has now confirmed it is poring through the documents, and intends to...

Limited Immigration Amnesty Through Executive Order Possible

July 30, 2010
By

This appears to deal with a sizable sub-group of people now here illegally on an expired visa. However, Obama is particularly vulnerable due to the manner in which he handled health care reform. He crammed it through against the will of the people. Also, Democrats have left the door...

Conor Friedersdorf: Angel Of Death In Web Publishing

July 29, 2010
By

Via American Power blog. Conor with one N guided Culture whatever it was down the toilet while at the helm. All he had to do was write at True/Slant to do it in. Can the Atlantic be far behind? Heh!

This is my last post for True/Slant. The site, unfortunately, is winding down...

GOP TN Gov Hopeful Wamp Receives Kiss Of Death From Richard Simmons

July 29, 2010
By

I don't know, but if you're going to talk secession to Hotline one day …

Rep. Zach Wamp (R-03) suggested TN and other states may have to consider seceding from the union if the federal government does not change its ways regarding mandates.

… and hand your opponents pictures like this the...

Mattera v. Rangel Headed For Trial

July 29, 2010
By

Amid news that Rangel couldn't negotiate a deal and the matter is now in the trial phase:

The deal between the lawyers will have little meaning if the committee members don't approve it, and Republicans said at the proceeding they were insisting on going forward with a trial. The panel is evenly...

Sherrod Hints At Obama Being An Uncle Tom

July 29, 2010
By

I didn't interject the phrase Uncle Tom into this discussion. Shirley Sherrod's husband and partner of decades, Charles Sherrod did. Now, Sherrod believes Obama needs a history lesson on black America. In many ways, Obama's background is more that of a white liberal, than a black man from the South. I...

Sherrod Update: More Awesomeness

July 29, 2010
By

The woman is stuck on stupid. She's still blaming Fox and hurling incoming at the administration. Oh yeah, this is going to end well for her. ha Dana Loesch pronounces it, a Buffet of Awesome! She may be correct!

Update at 11:48 a.m. ET: "It wasn't all media. It was Fox," Sherrod...

Shirley Sherrod To Sue Breitbart

July 29, 2010
By

Good luck with that. But she does have a history of preferring a lawsuit to going to work. I don't think she has any ground to stand on, other than hoping for a jury that thinks she needs more cash. Interesting, nothing about suing Obama for wrongful termination. Is this now...

TIME magazine ends debate on the war in Afghanistan?

Leaving Afghanistan: "Zohal
Sagar lost her father and two brothers in the war. Her mother hopes they can leave Afghanistan and find a new life in Canada," TIME captions this bitterweet image of one of the innocent victims of war. But it gets oh so much worse. Their cover image will...

JournoList And The Vast Left-Right Wing Conspiracies

July 29, 2010
By

It's worth noting, or reminding folks who know it, about the Washington Independent. Weigel and Ackerman are two of the writers who passed through there and were part of JournoList. Both now write for other venues.

The Washington Independent is just another arm of AI – American Independent – Impact Journalism in the...

Second Sailor’s Body Recovered In Afghanistan

Let's not forgot those who need to matter to us most. They're off fighting a foreign was so, hopefully, we don't have to fight a larger one here. Rest in peace. More via CBS – seems as though he's identified there.
