Number Six: NBC News Again
Caught Selectively Editing Video
Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article

I had hoped this nonsense would end with the reign of Steve Capus, but once again we have NBC News forced to apologize for yet-another dishonest edit meant to push the left´s agenda. Thanks to NRO´s Andrew Johnson, we learned that on Friday MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts used selective clips from a speech by Vice President Joe Biden to make it look as though Biden was making a push for gun control. Biden´s speech had nothing to do with guns. Here is the unedited clip. How low of NBC News to use a speech commemorating four Americans

Keynes Was Gay — Not That
There’s Anything Wrong with That

There’s a brouhaha a-brewin’ over comments by Niall Ferguson at an investor conference. Ferguson suggested that because John Maynard Keynes was gay, effete, and childless he might have lacked concern for posterity. After all, Keynes famously proclaimed ”in the long run we’re all dead.” In a nigh-upon hysterical and terribly written item, Tom Kostigen of Financial Advisor says Ferguson took “gay-bashing to new heights.” He adds, “Apparently, in Ferguson’s world, if you are gay or childless, you cannot care about future generations nor society.” Now, I don’t know exctly what



Syria: America and Israel can

Strike hard, strike without mercy. One war, two blows of intense ferocity, the first an act of medieval barbarism, the second an exemplar of 21st century precision warfare; but the line that connects them is becoming ever clearer. A pile of corpses lies sprawling, arms akimbo, against the wall of a house. We have seen women and children dead in Syria before, but not in this sort of random pile, untended, blood still coming from the toddlers´ wounds, their mouths yawning, their limbs twisted under their bodies. The photograph is too distressing to publish: the mentality of the men who

Gun Control Advocates in Hysterics
over Fading Chances of Legislation
Breitbart´s Big Government, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article

Gun control advocates are in hysterics, using frenzied, emotional attacks against Senators who opposed gun control last month in hopes of changing the momentum. This explains why Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has been targeted in New Hampshire, and it´s why Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly have been targeting Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in Kentucky. Staunch gun control supporters saw Sandy Hook Elementary as their opportunity to secure more gun laws, but now they see that opportunity fading away. Thus, they are "conducting surveys, staging rallies, funding television ads and storming town-hall meetings."

Nigel Evans: Tory MP arrested on
suspicion of rape and sexual assault

Top Tory Nigel Evans was sensationally arrested today on suspicion of rape, the Sunday Mirror can reveal. As a Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, Mr Evans holds a top job in British politics and is charge of ensuring MPs obey the rules. The 55-year-old politician - who came out as gay in 2010 - is accused of raping a man and sexually assaulting a second man between July 2009 and March this year. Detectives from Lancashire Police swooped on Mr Evans’ cottage in the Lancashire village of Pendleton this morning. Police forensic teams also searched the property.

Sequester: Head Start Officials Cancel
School Days, Attend Expensive Conference
Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/4/2013 5:42:25 PM     Post Reply
The Head Start program, a favorite of President Barack Obama, had an interesting solution for the problems caused by sequestration: low-income children in the program were sent home ten days early. At the same time, 2,800 Head Start leaders spent a total of $752,059 attending a three-day conference in National Harbor, MD. The money used for the conference came from the program’s Training and Technical Assistance funds. Those funds were available because Congress allocates them separately from Head Start´s operating costs, and the Office of Head Start took the hit from the sequester



Federal Prisons Plan to
Release More Inmates on
´Compassionate´ Grounds

To reduce the growing prison population and escalating prison costs, the U.S Bureau of Prisons says it is now revising its "compassionate release" rules so more ailing and aging inmates can be freed. A report from the Justice Department´s inspector general says the revised rules will expand the compassionate release program by making inmates with a life expectancy of up to 18 months eligible for consideration (versus the current 12 months). The revised rules also will explain what level of functioning is "extraordinary and compelling" enough for inmates to be considered for release.

The Republican Party´s post-2012 introspection has focused principally on America´s growing Hispanic population and how the GOP can capture larger percentages of the Hispanic vote, but Republicans aren´t sitting back on their heels when it comes to other groups that conservatives have traditionally struggled with. African-Americans turned out at the polls at much higher rates in 2008 and 2012 than in previous elections. As Jamelle Bouie writes, President Obama´s vote margin in Ohio "can be explained solely by higher black turnout." And while it´s possible that this could be due to the historic

Integrity in journalism is not only optional, being dishonest is actually commendable. That was the message sent last night by the American Society of Magazine Editors as it gave one of its highly coveted National Magazine Awards to Mother Jones, the far-left publication which published a surreptitiously recorded video of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaking to a Florida fund-raiser in 2012. The Romney speech, in which he made his infamous reference to “47 percent” of Americans being willing to support President Obama because of their dependence on the welfare

How do you top making national news for bigotry? Trying getting people to "Give Up (Eating) Hamburgers to Stop Climate Change." For loony lefty syndicated columnist David Sirota, it´s all just another day at the office. Sirota made national news for his bizarre and bigoted hope that the Boston bomber would turn out to be "a white American." Fresh off that fiasco, Sirota has turned his sights to changing the climate by changing America´s diet. According to Sirota´s May 2 column, "the fastest way to reduce climate change" simply "requires us all to eat fewer animal products."

"Some kids have never seen what a real tomato looks like," and some "don´t know where a cucumber comes from," First Lady Michelle Obama said today. Addressing a gathering at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mrs. Obama said that´s one reason she planted her garden at the White House: "And the nutrition issue, as Tom mentioned, as you all know, is something near and dear to my heart not just as First Lady, but as a mother. In fact, one of the first things that I did, as you know, as First Lady, was to plant the garden

Send Judges to Guantánamo, Then Shut It

New Haven - President Obama has once again pledged to close the Guantánamo Bay prison. But can he back up his brave words with decisive action? The answer is yes, if he chooses to. At present, legislation bars him from sending the Guantánamo detainees to the mainland United States to receive justice from the federal courts, leaving them to be tried by slow-moving military commissions that deny them many of the guarantees of civilian legal procedure. (Snip) He can, on his own authority, send federal judges to Guantánamo, where they could resolve the remaining cases in trials everyone can

Kabul, Afghanistan - The C.I.A.’s station chief here met with President Hamid Karzai on Saturday, and the Afghan leader said he had been assured the agency would continue dropping off stacks of cash at his office despite a storm of criticism that has erupted since the payments were disclosed. The C.I.A. money, Mr. Karzai told reporters, was “an easy source of petty cash,” {Snip) In Afghanistan, the political elite includes many men more commonly described as warlords, numerous people with ties to the opium trade and to organized crime along with lawmakers and other senior officials.

The evidence of a cover-up is becoming clear, thanks to information recently released about what happened at Benghazi. Doug Ross of Director Blue has pulled together information from Stephen Hayes and the House Oversight Committee that leads to, in his words, "four inescapable conclusions": a) Hillary Clinton lied under oath to Congress. b) Barack Obama went to sleep knowing that a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans were under terrorist attack. c) Barack Obama awoke refreshed the next day to begin fundraising. d) The entire Executive Branch lied repeatedly to the American people to

Washington - The airstrike that Israeli warplanes carried out in Syria was directed at a shipment of advanced surface-to-surface missiles from Iran that Israel believed was intended for Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese organization, American officials said Saturday. (Snip) Iran and Hezbollah have both backed President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war, now in its third year. But as fighting in Syria escalates, they also have a powerful stake in expediting the delivery of advanced weapons to Hezbollah in case Mr. Assad loses his grip on power. Israel, for its part, has repeatedly cautioned that

NEW YORK - Niall Ferguson, a Harvard history professor and author, is apologizing for saying economist John Maynard Keynes didn´t care about the future because he was gay and had no children. Ferguson made the remarks on Thursday during a question-and-answer session after a prepared speech at the Altegris Strategic Investment conference in Carlsbad, Calif. Asked to comment about Keynes, he suggested that the British economist´s philosophy was shaped by being homosexual and therefore childless. The remarks were reported by the website of Financial Advisor magazine and other online publications. On Saturday Ferguson acknowledged the remarks and said he never

Late Tuesday, the bipartisan Gang of Eight released a new version of its comprehensive immigration reform bill to the Senate. Now 867 pages — up from the original 844 — the bill, known as a substitute, is filled with corrections and rewordings of portions of the first bill. But it appears there are some substantive changes — including a whopping change that makes a key part of reform ten times more expensive than previously thought. The bill establishes a “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Trust Fund” to cover the various costs of reform.

Tumors deep in the brain long have challenged neurosurgeons such as Dr. Ronald Young. Instruments existed to reach that far, but the problem lay in getting there without doing damage to the brain. Now, a new technology developed in Indianapolis allows Young and other surgeons to prop open the folds of the brain to reach the problem sites below. The device opens the door to minimally invasive surgery for thousands of patients suffering from brain tumors or certain types of strokes who might have no other treatment option. The first time Young saw a prototype of the small

For weeks, jurors in Philadelphia heard grim testimony about deaths and squalor at Dr. Kermit Gosnell´s inner-city abortion clinic. While they listened, the murder case reverberated far beyond the courtroom, changing , at least for the moment , the tone of the national debate on abortion. Groups supporting legal access to abortion, after major successes in the 2012 national elections, find themselves on the defensive as they distance themselves from Gosnell. "All of us are appalled by the substandard illegal practices," said Vicki Saporta, who as CEO of the National Abortion Federation

DENVER — A Colorado firearms company has found a new home across the border in Wyoming, protesting the recent passage of restrictive new guns laws. HiViz Shooting Systems announced Thursday that it will move its core operations from Fort Collins, Colo., to Laramie, Wyo. That’s about an hour’s drive, but light years away in terms of state gun policy. HiViz becomes the first gun-related manufacturing company to pick up stakes since Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed three sweeping gun-control laws in March. Other firearms manufacturers, including Magpul Industries

And he then pretended like I had said an employee had come forward. HEMMER: This is a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State. He’s not in some back room in Washington D.C.

QUESTION: Just a question on Benghazi. Since the Office of the Legal Advisor issued the letter with the roadmap for private counsel representing whistleblowers to seek security clearances, has anyone applied for the security clearances? PATRICK VENTRELL, STATE DEPARTMENT ACTING SPOKESMAN: Yes.
