Sad. And these are the guys who supposedly report the facts…

get all huffy because a Texas reporter challenges him. See, Obama is not accustomed to being challenged by the press. Heaven knows that the Washington press corps won’t do it, and we see why–they will lose their jobs. Obama ends by threatening the reporter, saying that is his last interview with Obama.
So the Washington press corps is both cowed by Obama and has a “family tie” with him in terms of philosophy and political bent. Tell me again, how reliable is the information you get?
say that NAZI-ism is not socialism?
Well, the main issue is that the left (and public school teachers are generally hard to the left) is frantic to say that NAZI-ism is not Leftism. Most people realize that NAZIs were evil (and there are countless movies about that, “NAZI” is generic term of disgust and disapprobation, and Bush was called “Hitler” over and over. When the left doesn’t like someone, they call him a NAZI [see Wisconsin]), but fewer people realize how evil Stalin and the USSR were. So in an effort to paint themselves as “virtuous,” the left needs to make NAZI-ism as evil as possible (not very difficult) and to either not mention the Soviets at all or to downplay their crimes. See, they are on the side of the USSR and so they don’t want to criticize it. The best way to avoid that is to simply say the obvious–that NAZI-ism was evil. And since Germany and Russia were on opposite sides (and the USSR out of convenience sided with the west), well, that deal is done.
Why? Because those people have historically controlled the media and they were and still are very sympathetic to the USSR, communism, and leftism in general. Many (though by no means all) will admit that they are hard left. Now it makes it easy that Hitler and Stalin did not get along and ended up fighting each other, but that was not because their economics differed much, it is because they, ahem, could not share power. But they were both Sauron (sorry for the geeky Lord of the Rings references).
But an actual review of history shows that there were only minor differences between Hitler and Stalin. They were both despots and mass murderers (and Stalin killed a whole lot more than Hitler, though that is a small comfort…). They both had fundamentally the same economic world view. Heck, NAZI is an acronym for “National Socialism!”
We need to understand that the Gulags and the ovens and force in general are a characteristic of leftism. Yes, there may be differences in degree at times (though often the difference is just in how many people are at your disposal to kill). But the key here is that the left has always relied on force. That is not an aberration. That’s not a bug, it’s a feature! Stalin and Hitler certainly made all they could out of this particular feature…
While Obama and his ilk desperately try to ban extended magazines, does it really make sense? Yeah, they’re democrats so of course they are gun-banners, but it simply makes no logical sense. Folks, let’s think about things here! Sheesh!
The population is getting more conservative, and this will likely go nowhere. There is no way the House would go along, and if somehow Obama were to implement it through regulation it would guarantee his “one-termer” status. The next president would (dare I say it?) change things.
Obama and the democrats seem bent on making life less safe for Americans. Why? I think it is just a mindless knee-jerk reaction to anything conservative. Use your brain, folks!
takes a huge swipe at NPR and their false and misleading reporting. Tell me again, Jefe. Why do these schmucks get public funding to stay alive?
says that even though the Obamacare law was declared unconstitutional, because there was no injunction the Obamaphiles are free to enforce this unconstitutional law anyway (in defiance of their oaths of office). See him say it here.
Yet here are the judge’s actual words (from page 75 of his ruling):
…there is a long-standing presumption “that officials of the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court. As a result, the declaratory judgment is the functional equivalent of an injunction.”
Wow. Just wow. Why has the lamestream media not addressed this? What we are seeing is clearly contempt of court by the Obama administration. And Turban Durbin is an accomplice.
But it’s certainly not the first time. Yeah, the Obama administration has been formally held in contempt of court before.

Krugman again twists the numbers to fit his own preferences. Krugman is a bad joke, and he engages in lies and obfuscation. He is a terrible, unreliable source. Well, actually he is reliably left, but he is not reliable in terms of reporting the facts or giving decent, fact-based analysis.
this not reported? What, it doesn’t fit the lamestream media meme?
It’s just that the hypocrisy of the left and their mindless myrmidons is sickening. I can certainly handle the truth, but I sure don’t get the truth from the lamestream media.
I have seen for 7 years or so now that the regular “legacy” media are liars and shills. But it’s the same with the “Global Warming” folks who faked data. All this does is make it MORE likely that we have conspiracy theories abound. NOTHING is reliable now, and one opinion is as good as any other.
Now if the media had not been faithless shills eager to twist the data to fit their preconceived notions, they would have tied the reporting to actual fact. By doing so they would have preserved the trust of the public, even if the facts were not always friendly to their worldview. But that was not done in an effort to convince people of leftism, and therefore we all now have little to hang our hats on. As I have said before, they soiled the bed we all sleep in. It’s sad, really. They crapped in the soup that was our only source of nourishment.
off the air. Amazing. MSNBC has been a laughingstock for being openly biased, and Olbermann is a HUGE schmuck who routinely carries the water for the democrats (and he likes that role). Still, I never thought he would be gone. I think he has just shot himself in the foot. He is a liability, and no one in their right mind would touch him.
