Washington Post Defames Andrew Breitbart

What is good for the goose isn’t good for the gander. Helena Andrews at the Washington Post has this reckless column about Andrew Breitbart and Shirley Sherrod. It it, Andrews falsely states that Andrew Breitbart “published a doctored video” of Sherrod’s racist confession at an NAACP convention. In fact, Breitbart published all that had been given to him, including the portion of the video where Sherrod is redeemed by confessing that she should not have been making decisions on the basis of race. Andrew also published the portion where Sherrod admits making adverse decisions toward a white farmer because of his

Forget the Oscars. Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler, Lindsay Lohan and "Movie 43" are among the esteemed company that will be battling for one of Hollywood´s most widely shunned awards: the Razzies. The nominations for the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards were announced Wednesday morning, and the list included some new names -- including Depp, a first-time Razzie nominee for "The Lone Ranger" -- as well as some old favorites, such as Sandler, Lohan and Sylvester Stallone. Sandler´s "Grown Ups 2" led all films with eight nominations. (Snip)Stallone picked up a worst actor Razzie nomination for three 2013 films -- "Bullet

RUSH: Hey, do you young people know -- I´m a making this up. In terms of Obamacare, the target demographic to sign up is young people, Millennials, and primarily young men. And they happen to be the smallest group that is signing up. The most needed enrollees are the fewest. The theory, you need young men who are working, who are healthy, buying health insurance but not making any claims because they´re healthy. And the money that they spend, theoretically, will fund health care for our beloved and respected seasoned citizens, who need health care daily because they´re old and

As of January 1, students in California public schools have been able to choose whether to use the boys’ rest room or girls’ rest room, as well as the girls’ locker room or boys’ locker room, based on whether they feel female or male, not whether they are anatomically female or male. That’s right: Governor Jerry Brown, of California, signed a bill that took effect January 1 that tells kids from kindergarten on that they should decide whether they believe their gender identity is and act, accordingly. The legislation also allows students to choose their sports teams based on whether they sense

RUSH: The Wall Street Journal on their website has some videos with their reporters and experts examining Bridgegate and Governor Christie in New Jersey. And since this is the most talked about radio talk show in the country, I somehow ended up being discussed here. It was yesterday afternoon, the Wall Street Journal website live video blog. During the Opinion Journal portion, the host and editorial board member Mary Kissel, speaking with Political Diary editor Jason Riley about Governor Christie, and during a discussion about why some conservatives are not supporting Christie during the scandal, they had this little back-and-forth.

The New York Times´s Charles Blow had an interesting column the other day, and we mean that as a backhanded compliment. Blow opens by announcing that his intention is to transcend the "simplistic, black-or-white, conservative vs. progressive discussion around the dissolution of the traditional family and high single-parent birthrates" and instead "focus more on complex areas of causation." That´s awfully ambitious, if not impossibly so, for an 800-word column. And Blow ends up spending most of that space decreeing various arguments off-limits. "We can´t look longingly at the halcyon ideals of yore," he avers. Good to know. "We must provide thorough and

The parents of a 6-year-old girl said their daughter was humiliated when a teacher interrupted the child’s one-minute speech and told her to sit down because she’s “not allowed to talk about the Bible in school,” attorneys for the California family allege. The incident occurred Dec. 19 inside a first grade classroom at Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary School in Temecula, Calif. The previous day the teacher instructed boys and girls to find something at home that represented a family Christmas tradition. They were supposed to bring the item to school and share the item in a classroom presentation. Brynn Williams decided to

A new Senate intelligence committee report is out, detailing the attacks that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and the actions before and after the attack. Below, we focus on four key points that will be important to the political debate about Benghazi going forward. 1. Hillary Clinton´s name comes up only once The lone mention comes in the section where the Republicans on the committee weigh in. They say Clinton ultimately bears responsibility for the failures and that her failure to act "clearly made a difference" in the lives of the four Americans killed. "Ultimately, however, the final

House passes $1.1-trillion budget bill

Party leaders pushed a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill for this year through the House on Wednesday, shunning the turmoil of recent budget clashes with a compromise financing everything from airports to war costs and brimming with victories and concessions for both parties. The huge bill furnishes the fine print — 1,582 pages of it — for the bipartisan pact approved in December that set overall spending levels for the next couple of years. With that decision behind them, the measure sailed through the House with no suspense and little dissent — fueled additionally by lawmakers’ desire to avoid an

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat considering a presidential bid in 2016, has nothing nice to say about President Barack Obama’s record. Asked by MSNBC whether there was “a single thing President Obama has done that you consider a positive achievement,” the folksy Democrat was at a loss for words. “My mother, God rest her soul, told me ‘Brian, if you can’t think of something nice to say about something change the subject,’” Schweitzer said. The one thing Schweitzer suggested was a positive about Obama’s presidency: that he made history as the first black president. In the interview, Schweitzer went on to

FLINT, MI - It´s a flyer intended to publicize a local Martin Luther King Day event, but instead it´s sparking outrage. And the controversy is drawing national attention. (Snip) The flyer depicts civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., wearing a large gold chain and flashing a westside sign. It´s part of an advertisement for a party that was to be held at McEwen´s event center in Flint this Saturday. McEwen says after seeing the flyer, he contacted the man who rented his hall under the name Mid-Michigan Teen Parties to talk him about it but got nowhere. "I wanted

Liza Minnelli was originally due to star in the Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops commercial that aired during the Golden Globes featuring Martha Stewart - but the Cabaret star canceled on the day of the shoot after making a host of diva demands and suffering an apparent ‘nervous breakdown’ according to brand’s boss. The 67-year-old star, and daughter of Judy Garland, was all set to film the throat lozenges commercial back in September, but unexpectedly cancelled at the last minute claiming it was ‘too much pressure’. Liza’s decision to cancel was all the more frustrating for the ad makers as they’d bent

Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to total of $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue--$540.6 million--was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants. In the same report, Planned Parenthood said that in the year that ended on Sept. 30, 2012 it did 327,166 abortions. Clinics in Iowa, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Montana and New Hampshire also received $655,192 in grants from the Department of Health and Human Services to serve as Obamacare “navigators,” as CNSNews.com reported earlier.

Commenting on President Barack Obama’s remarks yesterday that he will not wait on congressional legislation but will instead use his pen to take executive and administrative actions, conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin said what Obama was doing constituted “a gradual, quiet coup,” or takeover of the government. Levin added that Obama’s language equaled the “common parlance of the dictator.” On his nationally syndicated radio program on Jan. 14, Levin played audio clips of Obama’s remarks from that day just prior to his first Cabinet meeting of the new year. Obama said: "But one of the things that I´ll be emphasizing

A federal judge on Wednesday rejected a conservative challenge to health insurance subsidies available to people in the 36 U.S. states that declined to establish their own online marketplaces under President Barack Obama´s healthcare law. The suit, brought by individuals and businesses from Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia, asserted that the wording of the 2010 law allowed subsidies to help people obtain insurance only in exchanges established by states, not those set up by the federal government. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman wrote that Congress clearly intended to make the subsidies available nationwide under

David Satter, who has been reporting and writing on Russia since the bad old days of the Soviet Union, has been blocked from entering the country, as he recounts in his article on today´s Wall Street Journal opinion page. He is the first journalist to be expelled from the country since the Cold War. His expulsion tells you something about the sinister character of the regime of Vladimir Putin, something that he has been writing about for years. I first met Satter on trips to observe the Russian elections of 1996 and 2000 sponsored by the Jamestown Foundation. He took a dark view of developments in Russia even amid the mood of optimism in the mid-1990s. What I find most shocking, however, is his writings on the circumstances in which Putin came, suddenly, to power in late 1999.

Is Argentina trying out the
5-point economy wrecking plan?

We were struck by a strange proposal this week. A top Argentine leader says his country should move the national capital from Buenos Aires in the east, facing the Atlantic, to a new city up in the north, closer to the Pacific. This would be an immense change – akin to Brazil moving the capital to Brasilia. It would be a shame to see Buenos Aires abandoned. But the idea that Argentina needs some shaking up is exactly right. A few weeks ago, we ran a report titled “How To Ruin Your Economy.” In five easy steps, it showed how a

The makers of new horror film Devil’s Due weren’t content for the scares to be confined to movie theaters. They thought up a devilishly mischievous prank that has been fraying the nerves of New Yorkers and filmed the results for a YouTube video called Devil Baby Attack. There is absolutely no dialogue in the video – just screaming. And it’s not surprising. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO - The producers made a remote-controlled stroller containing a horrifying animatronic ‘devil baby’ that suddenly sits up and emits a demonic, blood-curdling wail when approached.

Anecdotal accounts of young college grads working as baristas, bartenders or retail clerks are widespread, provoking questions about the economic logic of going to college, particularly if doing so means taking on a lot of debt. Now come some economists from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with evidence that college grads between 22 years old and 27 years really are finding it tougher to find jobs that require a bachelor’s degree than has been the case in the past. “Such difficulties are not a new phenomenon,” the economists say in an essay published in the New York Fed’s latest

1.) So just how bad is this George Washington Bridge traffic incident? It´s bad. Pretty bad. Super bad, even. Chief executives just don´t use the power of government to exact revenge on ordinary citizens for what they take to be political insubordination. To put this in context, imagine what it would be like for a presidential administration to close down national parks in order to intentionally inflict pain on people trying to visit them. Or if some other administration had the IRS target individuals and groups from the opposing side. Thankfully, things like that never, ever happen. 2.) Wait a minute,

A retired cop who police say went ballistic and fatally shot a man for texting in a Florida movie theater was ordered held without bail Tuesday. Curtis Reeves was charged with second-degree murder for allegedly gunning down Chad Oulson, who was texting his 3-year-old daughter’s day-care center while in the suburban theater outside Tampa Monday. “He must have just snapped,” said a neighbor of Reeves. The 71-year-old former Tampa police captain faces life in prison for allegedly shooting Oulson with a .380-caliber semiautomatic weapon. Oulson’s wife, Nicole, tried to shield him, and the bullet hit her in the hand before striking

Harry Reid doesn’t seem to want to allow a vote on the Iran sanctions bill, so advocates are shifting tactics and working with House leadership to pass it there first. The Senate is stalling on bringing new Iran sanctions legislation to a vote following another diplomatic breakthrough, but pro-sanctions Senators say the House may not wait to pass the bill that the White House says could kill the talks and lead to war. On Sunday, Iran and the P5+1 countries announced they had completed the implementation agreement for an interim deal regarding Iran’s nuclear program, starting the clock on a six-month period
