I don’t claim to be real good with the computer and the internet.  So it is entirely possible that I missed Media Matters’ mea culpa and apology now that even the NY Times has vindicated Andrew Breitbart on the Pigford fraud. Please help me find Media Matters’ apology. I searched the Media Matters’ website…

Friendly skies of Sequestration

The Obama administration’s implementation of sequestration has followed the classic firehouse or Washington Monument strategy. If no one felt the effects of sequestration, then he’d cancel White House tours; that would make citizens demand that Republicans cave to his demands. It didn’t work at first.

If you haven’t read it yet, you should. Leslie Eastman’s The Pornification of Campuses: Every week, we seem to write about a campus “Sex Week” event that features porn stars glamorizing the adult film industry. Your tuition and tax dollars at work.

A front page investigative piece from the New York Times has put Pigford back on the map, in a big way: Federal Spigot Flows as Farmers Claim Discrimination. The deal, several…

Latest narrative deflection: Minimizing the Jihadist threat through misleading stats about “right-wing terrorists”

Posted by
4/26/2013 at 9:30am
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, a narrative on the left seems to be developing to move the focus away from terrorism connected to Islamic extremism to that of right-wing extremism. Not surprisingly, the narrative is also being directed from one of weapons of mass destruction (which includes explosive devices)…

A stain on academia — Association for Asian American Studies calls for boycott of Israeli universities and academics

Posted by
4/25/2013 at 5:11pm
As I have told you, the efforts of some left-wing academics to demonize Israel never ends. While you go about your business and pay attention to world events, they work tirelessly to ostracize Israel while ignoring both Israel’s security situation and the decades-long effort to destroy Israel. Groups like those who sponsor the Pinkwashing…
