"There are photographs of me in the world. Yes," he said. "We dont know where the photograph came from. We don't know for sure what's on it, we don't know for sure if its been manipulated, if it was taken out of one place and dropped in something else. And I'm going to let this [...]

Down the Memory Hole with the New York Times

By |April 28th, 2011|

It is inconceivable that this campaign to portray Mr. Obama as the insidious "other" would have been conducted against a white president. - A Certificate of Embarrassment, The New York Times Are you kidding me? It's a "certificate of embarrassment" all right, for the New York Times. It was none other than the Times who [...]

Barack Obama’s ‘Mean Streak’

By |April 18th, 2011|

This Washington Examiner editorial made me laugh out loud. The headline is: Mean streak: Obama is not as nice as he looks. This is news? Evidently the Republicans never heard of Alice Palmer. Taking on the very obvious first, Republicans are whining because Pres. Obama supposedly gave a "mean-spirited partisanship, gross misrepresentations of fact, and [...]

Start Your Shutdown Clock. Seriously?

Flashback Fun for 2012: Newt Gingrich Spinning his Cheating During Clinton Impeachment

The Fox News anchor obviously conflicted about cornering a Republican. Having gone through impeachment and written in Clinton's defense at the time, the unwinding of [...]

Peter Beinert’s Right, It’s The End Of An Empire

By |March 25th, 2011|

Some commentators love the Libya war; others hate it. But most agree that it's profoundly unnatural that we were pushed into it by"¦ France. Welcome to the post-American world. In the age we're entering, most of the time, the choice will no longer be between humanitarian interventions controlled by the United States and humanitarian interventions [...]
