Daily News Reporter Admits: Breitbart
´Friends of Hamas´ Story ´Accurate´

Brietbart Big Journalism, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/20/2013 3:46:36 PM

The mainstream media have ignored the fact that at least one prominent supporter of Hamas has donated money to an organization associated with former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE)--namely, the Atlantic Council, which receives support from the Hariri family of Lebanon, whose most prominent member, former Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri, publicly backs Hamas. Instead, they have attacked a story by Ben Shapiro citing Senate sources who said they had been told Hagel had received funds from a group "purportedly" calling itself "Friends of Hamas."

No doubt, multiple, written apologies are being drafted this minute by those who savaged Ted Cruz for asking about this.

Not really.

Only conservatives play fair or even remember what ´fair´ is.

Not long ago, a friend at work told me I absolutely, positively must watch “Broad City” on Comedy Central, saying it was a slacker-infused hilarity.My reaction? Oh no, not another one.The vast wasteland of television has been replaced by an excess of excellence that is fundamentally altering my media diet and threatening to consume my waking life in the process. I am not alone. Even as alternatives proliferate and people cut the cord, they are continuing to spend ever more time in front of the TV without a trace of embarrassment.

The president´s power grab

Recently, a bizarre scene unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives that would have shocked the framers of the Constitution. In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had decided to go it alone in areas where Congress refused to act to his satisfaction. In a system of shared powers, one would expect an outcry or at least stony silence when a president promised to circumvent the legislative branch. Instead, many senators and representatives erupted in rapturous applause; they seemed delighted at the notion of a president assuming unprecedented and unchecked powers at their

ustin, Texas - From his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, with roughly a dozen police officers outside, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Saturday that everyone in the world will be just as effectively monitored soon -- at least digitally."The ability to surveil everyone on the planet is almost there and, arguably, will be there in the next couple of years," said Assange, speaking via Skype to a large audience at the South by Southwest Interactive festival here. Assange rocketed to international fame, and infamy, in 2010 after Wikileaks began helping publish secret government documents online.

Sometime during the summer of 1998, a Montana-based journalist named Walter Kirn received an odd request: His friends Harry and Mary Piper, wealthy and religious, had rescued an injured dog and found her a home.His new owner was named Clark Rockefeller, and as badly as he wanted this dog, he had no way to come get her: He lived in New York City, was unwilling to fly commercial, and his private plane was indisposed. His wife, Sandy, was traveling on business, and he wouldn’t make the cross-country drive alone. He didn’t want to hire a stranger to transport the dog. Intrigued,

BEIJING — Malaysian officials investigating the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane Saturday said they were not ruling out terrorism — or any other causes — as reports emerged that two Europeans listed on the passenger manifest were not aboard and may have had their passports stolen.Vietnamese military aircraft participating in a search-and-rescue operation for the Boeing 777, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, had spotted two oil slicks in the waters off southern Vietnam, the Associated Press reported. The government said the slicks were each six miles to nine miles long and were

Bob Costas suffered an eye infection during the Sochi Olympics, but The New York Post‘s Page Six claims to have an exclusive scoop on the reason why: “botched Botox.” That’s right, Page Six claims a source told them that “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” And while that seems a bit far-out there, NBC actually gave a statement to Page Six denying that Costas’ eye infection had anything to do with smoothing out face wrinkles. NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection

France´s right-wing opposition is reeling after the publication of secret tapes made at the Elysee palace during the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy.The recordings - in which Mr Sarkozy is heard discussing confidential affairs of state but also joshing with his wife Carla Bruni - were made by one of his closest advisers, Patrick Buisson.A highly controversial figure whose political origins lie on the far-right, Mr Buisson is credited with engineering Mr Sarkozy´s 2007 election by pushing him to toughen his stance on immigration, crime and national identity. After the election Mr Sarkozy said of him: "There are very few people of

Obama, Solipsist
National Review, by Michael Barone    Original Article

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word that means that the self is the only existing reality and that other entities, including other people, are representations of one’s own self and can have no independent existence. A person who follows this philosophy may believe that others see the world as he does and will behave as he would.It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — such as a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors, and is a better political director than his political

A Russia Today anchor quit live on air Wednesday, declaring she cannot work for a station that “whitewashes the actions of Vladimir Putin.” Liz Wahl, who works in the network’s Washington DC bureau, said her grandparents came to the United States to escape Soviet oppression. “And that is why personally I cannot be part of a station funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the action of Putin,” she said, reading from a statement. “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.” Earlier, Ms. Wahl had tweeted:

A rash of police
shootings in San Diego

Last Thursday, a San Diego Police Department detective fired into a home before serving a drug warrant, wounding two men. The detective apparently attempted to knock on a window, causing the window to shatter. She then says she saw one of the men reaching for a gun. There were six people inside the house. None of them had a gun.In searching for more coverage of the story, I found a number of other recent and troubling police shootings in the San Diego area. Among them: Last September, a San Diego Police Department officer shot and killed a transient man who

Dems turn on Obama nominee;
president loses big vote in Senate
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/5/2014 1:38:02 PM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats killed the filibuster for nominations because they wanted to be able to confirm the president´s choices for top administration positions even if Republicans were united in opposition. From now on, Democrats ruled, nominations would be confirmed by a simple majority vote. With 55 Democrats in the Senate, and as few as 51 required for confirmation, the change virtually guaranteed success for the president´s nominees. But even a rule change was not enough to save the nomination of Debo Adegbile, the former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official who was the president´s choice to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division.

A fired up Gov. Cuomo vowed Tuesday afternoon to “save charter schools.”We are here to tell you we stand with you. You are not alone,” said Cuomo, speaking at a massive pro-charter school rally that attracted thousands of parents, teachers, and kids from across the state who braved frigid 20-degree temperatures to fill the park in front of the Capitol in Albany. “Our point today is that parents deserve a choice,” Cuomo said. “I am committed to ensuring charter schools have the financial capacity, the physical space, and the government support to thrive and grow.” Cuomo made the comments around the same

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

Pelosi claimed the unnamed "friend" called the poor and hungry "invisible". Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the "invisible" line...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

“I told you so.” Those have to be four of the most satisfying words in the English language. And Mitt Romney has earned the right to speak that short sentence, over and over again, whenever he chooses. Not that he would — it would be “unbecoming,” to use one of Romney’s old-fashioned words that in 2002 had the mandarins of Political Correctness harrumphing about his “sexism,” I believe the charge was that time. But these days, Mitt looks more and more prescient, and his critics ever more deluded. First of all, Russia has become “our number one geopolitical foe,” as he put it
