In a DailyDownload clip this afternoon, The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn gave their take on Tuesday night’s explosive Fox News showdown between Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Sean Hannity. The two praised Hannity’s handling of the situation and blasted Ellison for acting like he did. “This guy came on his show and then tried to filibuster it by yelling at him, saying ‘You’re a terrible journalist,’ ‘You’re the worst journalist,’ ‘You’re a Republican,’ ‘You’re awful,’” Ashburn said of the debate. Kurtz then offered his assessment: “The congressman picked the fight.
Comments: Wow. How amazing they actually defended Hannity. That was just normal behavior for the obnoxious, disgusting Ellison. Imagine having to be in congress and try to work with someone like him. That´s why nothing gets done and they blame it all on Republicans.
I tried to put some quotes in that the "distinguished" Congressman Ellison called his opponent last fall (who had spent 21 years in the Marines, serving two tours of duty in Iraq), but the automatic censors at Lucianne wouldn´t allow it. That´s understandable. Google for yourself and see what type of language this "civil servant" used against someone who dared to challenge him.
The problem with Mr Ellison is that Mr Hannity has ALWAYS stated exactly what he is and is not. He is NOT a journalist and never pretends to be. He is NOT a Republican and never pretends to be. He is a CONSERVATIVE and a talk show host. I hope that Mr Ellison knows more about what he votes on than he does about Mr Hannity. But I expect he does not.
As Rush has been saying "Why are the liberals so mad"? They´ve won the election, they have the media kissing their butts, they´ve been able to allow the democrat voters vote more than once for them, they´ve spent us into debt by wasting money and padding their pockets at the same time...
Makes one stop and wonder what our country is coming to when someone like Ellison can be elected as a representative. Is the majority of people in his district like him? If so, Lord help us. I remember being very concerned when I heard he was first elected (him being a muzzie).
Minnesota has a habit of electing whack jobs to represent them. A wrestler, a comedian, now this lunatic. I see a disturbing pattern here. Maybe some Minnesotans need to come out of the woods and read a newspaper once in a while.
Ellison showed all the maturity of a teenybopper in an argument with her dad! Quite a stark reflection of the mentality of his Lo Fo constituency of dumbed-down, Media-influenced, spoon-fed, self-absorbed, celebrity-obsessed, Kool-Aid drinking, uninformed, dysfunctional plantation bobble-heads and government-dependant federal teat-sucking parasites.

Someone should ask Mr. Ellison, a Muslim, what his view on homosexuality is. His reply should either get him kicked out of the Democrat Party or tick off his Muslim buds.
I watched Ellison do his imitation of a cranky, overtired, probably wet and in need of having his diaper changed toddler in real time on Sean Hannity’s program Tuesday night. On one hand, I enjoyed observing the manner in which a “Progressive” makes his leftist case for all the world to see. On the other hand, Hannity was much much much too polite and gentlemanly and tolerant with his utterly pathetic “guest.” Ellison is typical of what so many liberals possess in the way of logical, reasoned thinking. They possess none whatsoever.
Saw the interview as it unfolded on TV. My first reaction was that Hannity should pull the plug on the Congressman´s microphone, since Mr. Ellison was obviously unable to engage in any sort of intelligent exchange. Then I realized Hannity was right to let the guy scream, yell, insult, (and be just plain wrong) and allow the viewers to see what type of people are representing some districts in Congress.
I´m with #7. Ellison did nothing but help himself with his lofo voters. It doesn´t matter how it plays outside his district. All that counts is that he was giving a wealthy white Republican (as they see it) hell. Far from being a liability, Ellison could use the video in campaign ads.
Ellison and his fellow progressives are on the brink of a meltdown whenever they are challenged with FACTS which are like sunlight to a vampire. His was a pathetic display of the kind childish behavior we expect from a three year old when he is told he can´t have a cookie. If progs couldn´t FEEL, they wouldn´t have an opinion at all.
Ellison gives Muslims a bad name. /s BTW, why isn´t his name Kareem or something? Ellison, Van Jones, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters, et al. are all Obama water carriers. Obama believes everything they do but can´t say it.

There´s a quote from SpongeBob Squarepants that´s applicable here:
Squidward: People talk really loud when they want to sound smart, right?
It seems like there are more Hannity-haterz here than Ellison-haterz. How many "lo-fo" voters watch Hannity´s show? Ellison didn´t do himself any good. He looked like a fool and certainly not someone any thinking person would want representing them in Congress. Hey Minnesotans, you look really dumb voting for this guy.
Poster # 36 we understand that all too well. I saw this exchange on Fox yesterday and on my way to work this morning the local talkshow host played it. Ellison is your typical liberal democrat politician. Loud, rude, combative, and not too bright. Hannity handed this nutcase the rope and he hung himself perfectly. Democrackheads like Ellison cannot deal with the truth and when confronted with someone who won´t back down and calls them on their B S they get all flustered. You people from Minnesota should feel so proud that you have the first Muslim(nutcase) representing your state. But then again you guys elected fellow IQ standard bearers like Ventura, Frankin, and Dayton so that doesn´t say much does it.
After many years of observation I have come up with one innutable fact. And that is theat liberals, everyone of them, will always cut in, talk over, yell at the top of their voice etc. any time they get into a discussion with a conservative. Happens every time and doesn´t matter who it is or where it´s at. I think it´s in their DNA. Any when the conservative just stops out of coustsey or just tired of hearing them, the libs will believe that they have won the "debate".
Agreed Ellison is a donkey´s duff. Then why is he invited on the program by Hannity, hardly the brightest bulb? Because all the gnashing, ranting and screeching is about ratings. Yet many continue to get their daily ration of ´truth´ from FOX. Truly sad.
1. Who´s this "Ellison" guy? If he´s the Muslim House member who insisted he be sworn-in on a Koran, and who has used a "Muslim" name, when did he change back? Further, if you know Islam, you know Muslims are required, not simply "encouraged," to lie in advancing Islam.
2. "Ellison" is cheek-by-jowl with CAIR and MAS, the "Muslim American Society." In other parts of the world, the MAS is called the Muslim Brotherhood. MAS is a cover. As is CAIR.
3. I´m quite confident that in his heart, "Ellison" sees himself as "representing" the interests of Islam, not of American citizens. Priorities of colonization, y´know.
3. Hannity did a really poor job being a dhimmi. He´s on somebody´s list now.
In May of 2010 while operating in southern Helmand Province, Afghanistan, as an infantryman, I was attached to a unit that was employing a female engagement team to supplement their already robust outreach campaign to the local villagers of Marjah. While the Marines—or “lioness” team—did an admirable job, it was clear that their presence in the midst of an all-male infantry company currently involved in combat operations clearly restructured the dynamic on the ground. Lieutenant Colonel Robert Macginnis in his book Deadly Consequences: How Cowards are Pushing Women into Combat proposes that
Texas Democratic Congressmen Rubén Hinojosa and Beto O’Rourke are pushing back against efforts to further secure the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing that more migrants would die while illegally crossing the border into America. “They come here to work hard and they come here to be reunited with their families. The sad truth is that many do not make it to accomplish any of those joyful things that I just described. Many of them lose their lives in the dry cactus and mesquite-filled lands of south Texas where I come from, the area that I represent,”
Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist largely responsible for the big reports on secret government surveillance in the last two months, will be testifying before Congress on these programs. There have been plenty of hearings already in which high-ranking intelligence officials have , backed by the same left-right coalition that nearly passed an amendment that would have reigned in the NSA’s surveillance scope on Wednesday. The Guardian reports the hearing was organized by Democrat Alan Grayson, and is backed by Republican Justin Amash, who introduced the aforementioned bill on the House floor. Grayson briefly explained
Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and Bob Filner may have done horrible things to the women in their lives. But they do not represent a Democratic “war on women.” That charge has been leveled by conservative groups this after new revelations emerged about New York mayoral candidate Weiner’s “sexting” activity and San Diego mayor Filner’s sexual harassment charges. ShePAC sent an email to supporters claiming “Liberal men are leading a violent war on women” and “the real war on women is coming from the left.” And the National Republican Senatorial Committee wrote in a press release, “Democrats invoke the
On Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blistered the mainstream media for favoring Republicans who are docile and trained to parrot policy positions Democrats prefer. “There are a lot of Democrats and folks in the media who like their Republicans timid and house-trained to just sit quietly in the corner, to accept losing, and to stand for nothing," Cruz said on Sean Hannity´s radio show. Cruz said Americans are fed up with such Republicans who are no different from Democrats and offer no alternative. Hannity said Cruz was not one of those "house-trained" Republicans,
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. Meghan McCain is getting her own show on a new TV network targeting the generation of Americans known as millennials. "Raising McCain" will debut on Pivot, a general entertainment network that launches Aug. 1. It´s described as a documentary-talk series for viewers ages 15 to 34. McCain will star and serve as executive producer. The 28-year-old author and blogger told the Television Critics Association on Friday that the show lets her "be crazy, be myself and talk about issues."

Comedian Jim Carrey angered many on the right with his venomous tweets against the Second Amendment as well as those who embrace it. He (much) later apologized, but hard feelings likely remain. The Ace Ventura star´s latest political tweet won´t win him any conservative fans back.

Republicans have been bracing for a storm ever since President Obama tapped Thomas Perez, the liberal activist head of the Justice Department´s civil rights division, to replace Hilda Solis as Labor secretary. Labeling Perez a radical, polarizing figure, Republicans held up his nomination for four months, allowing it to move forward only on July 18 as part of a deal to prevent Senate Democrats from going nuclear and changing the chamber´s voting rules. Now employers and their GOP allies in Congress worry it´s payback time. During Solis´ tenure at Labor, the department focused most of its energy on writing
Union leaders are calling on Congress and President Obama to provide a federal bailout to the city of Detroit. The executive council of the AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest labor federation, called for an “immediate infusion of federal assistance for Detroit” to be matched by Michigan, which they say has not done enough to keep the city from going through bankruptcy. “Bankruptcy must not be used as a tool to impoverish city of Detroit workers or retirees. City workers have already made severe concessions to keep the city afloat,” the executive council said in a statement.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not know that her longtime aide Huma Abedin planned to speak publicly in support of her husband, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, CNN reported Thursday. Abedin appeared alongside Weiner at a hastily arranged press conference earlier this week, after it was revealed her husband had continued to send sexually explicit pictures and texts to other women, even after resigning from Congress over similar indiscretions. But according to CNN, Abedin did not consult with Clinton — who herself has
Entertainer and civil rights activist Harry Belafonte blamed the Tea Party for increasing "racial animus" in the United States in an appearance with the Dream Defenders at the Florida State Capitol. In a response to a question from Breitbart News about the dramatic difference between black and white opinion on the George Zimmerman acquittal, Belafonte said that black Americans believed that white Americans don´t pay attentions to black issues unless they create a disturbance. Belafonte added that during the civil rights era, they fought and achieved their objectives but that he felt that progress had been rolling back.
The next time you turn on a light, ride an elevator or charge up your cell phone, you might want to thank John Toth or 86,000 others like him still working today to dig the coal that fuels 40 percent of the electricity in the most productive nation ever. Toth, a heavy-set West Virginian, toiled for over 25 years as a miner and a worker in other coal related industries. He bears the scars - short of breath and hard of hearing from loud machinery - but laments the demise of America´s most abundant source of energy.
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world.

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
