Defenders of the Confederate Flag, prepare to feel really, really uncomfortable—you have an unlikely ally(ish).

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz is a dependable progressive shill. When Republicans retook the Senate last year, he was apoplectic; when he encounters right wing opposition, he blatantly shuts it down.

All in all, he’s a belligerent with a...

At least no one got hurt this time.

But Gaza Flotilla III was a complete flop.

Meant to break Israel’s perfectly legal naval blockade of Gaza (more on legality here), designed to stop Iranian shipments of weapons, the flotilla avoided the disaster of Gaza Flotilla I, in which 9 people were killed when...

Ah yes, the media and gun control.

Senator Cruz joined PBS host Tavis Smiley Tuesday. Smiley seized the opportunity to peg Sen. Cruz on gun control.

This week’s attack on a historical black church in Charleston has sent the liberal political and media classes into a political feeding frenzy.

The families of the dead, by contrast, has defied the odds embraced love and forgiveness.

Here are five examples how some people sought to exploit the murders for political gain:

Because I am a glutton for punishment, I read the anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website.

I do it, so you don’t have to.

One of the authors there posted this video put out by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, apparently one in a series, as if it were a bad thing.

Seems pretty much on target...

Hamas assembles and fires rocket from residential area NDTV

It’s too late to undo the massive propaganda campaign surrounding the 2014 Gaza conflict, which Israel called Operation Protective Edge.

False statistics about civilian casualties were put out by Hamas ministries and then adopted without question by the UN, “human rights” groups, and the media to create the narrative that “most” or...

Early Saturday morning, a man planted explosives outside of, and fired an automatic weapon at, the Dallas police headquarters. Fortunately no one was injured, but the ensuing chase lasted for hours and put both the police and the community in danger.

The ordeal ended in a standoff, which ended in a dead...

Hillary Clinton what difference does it making polling president 2016 scandal

I enjoy reading or hearing stories that humanize candidates. The story of Mitt Romney helping to remove a stump from a neighbor’s yard was a good one, or how the Perry family adopted Marcus Luttrell — also a heartwarming, warm fuzzy inducing tale. Even John McCain recounting his time as a...

Jon Stewart on NYT coverage of marco rubio how is this front page news

The NYT published an article last week pretending Sen. Rubio’s traffic tickets from the 90s were scandalicious. Mockery of the “troubling” allegations ensued and the NYT was rightly mocked. This week, the NYT again dropped a ridiculous “scoop.” This time, they portrayed the Rubios as spendthrifts who had luxury speed boats...

I must’ve missed the “everyone make stuff up” memo circulating through media channels this week. Thankfully, I’m just a blogger.

Tuesday, the Huffington Post published a post with the headline, Jeb Bush In 1995: Unwed Mothers Should Be Publicly Shamed. There’s just one problem though — that’s not what Jeb Bush...

Last week, the New York Times dropped the lamest “hit” piece in the history of hit pieces. Pretending a few traffic tickets from the 90s made Sen. Rubio and his wife unfit for public service, the NYT ended up the butt of the joke.

The New York Times yesterday featured an article on Hillary Clinton’s electoral strategy for 2016. In short, she apparently is mimicking President Barack Obama’s strategy for his second term.

Instead, she is poised to retrace Barack Obama’s far narrower path to the presidency: a campaign focused more on mobilizing supporters in the...
