Dangerous Times: The New York
Times Goes the Full Pravda

American Thinker, by James Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/4/2014 5:12:28 AM

Every thoughtful person knows the NY Times peddles shameless whoppers every single day, just as Pravda did in Soviet Moscow -- "pravda" meaning "the truth" in Russian. In the good old USSR you didn´t read Pravda for the truth. You read it for the daily Communist Party Line, which bore no relationship to the truth -- other than to cover it up. Then you told your friends the latest headlines, and if they laughed at the same punch lines, you knew they got the jokes, too. Reading Pravda became an art form that allowed readers to guess who was up and

Little Sisters of the Government

This week Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an unusual injunction merely hours before the Affordable Care Act´s birth-control mandate was supposed to apply to an order of Catholic nuns. The Justice Department replied on Friday, and the Administration´s disdain for religious conscience still retains the power to shock. Later this term the Supreme Court will hear arguments related to the ObamaCare requirement that all employer health plans must furnish contraception or else pay a tax penalty, but those cases involve corporations. The Little Sisters of the Poor run a nonprofit Colorado nursing home and hospice and therefore ought to be exempt under

11 Nasty Trends That Will

The resilience that has long been one of America´s remarkable traits was on display in 2013. Not only did businesses create 2 million jobs, but the struggling economy actually grew and profits and stock prices soared to near-record levels. Still, five years into the Obama presidency, the economy is grossly underperforming. Contrary to the dominant media narrative, it´s not bad luck or the financial crisis to blame, but bad policies — from the $860 billion "stimulus" that didn´t stimulate to the Dodd-Frank financial reform that killed lending. Last year was a challenging one for entrepreneurs and other productive Americans. No fewer than

RUSH: "Eleven Republican attorneys general..." By the way, that is the correct way to say it. Obama says "attorney generals." He´s Harvard educated, and he says that, just like "corpseman," in the Marines, and 57 states and other things. Regardless, "Eleven Republican attorneys general say that the Obama [Regime] is breaking the law by repeatedly making changes to Obamacare without going through Congress," and they´re right. "The attorneys general specifically criticize Obama´s executive action that allowed insurance companies to keep offering health plans that had been cancelled for not meeting Obamacare´s more rigorous standards." This is the old "if you like

U.S. Seeking al Qaeda Terrorist
Linked to Benghazi Attack

The U.S. government is trying to apprehend an al Qaeda terrorist wanted for his role in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack that killed four Americans. The suspect, Muhammad Jamal, was imprisoned in Egypt last fall and in September was being held by the Egyptian government. His current whereabouts could not be confirmed, said U.S. officials who spoke on condition of anonymity. One official said Jamal remains in Egyptian custody, contrary to reports that he was in Yemen. Jamal was labeled a designated terrorist by the United Nations Oct. 18, identifying him and the group he formed, the Muhammad Jamal Network, as linked

RUSH: UK Daily Mail. It´s an amazing story. "Hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people on a frigid Thursday morning because they can´t determine whether their Obamacare insurance plans are in effect. Patients in a close-in DC suburb who think they´ve signed up for new insurance plans are struggling to show their December enrollments are in force, and health care administrators aren´t taking their word for it." They´ve got no proof. So people thought they were signing up for Obamacare, but somehow there´s not an enrollment card or an ID card or a membership card or any

RUSH: Did you people know that I want Hillary Clinton elected president? Well, it happened this morning on C-SPAN, on their Washington Journal show. Peter Slen, the host, was interviewing American University Women and Politics Institute director Jennifer Lawless. During the interview they took some phone calls from C-SPAN viewers about women in politics, and a guy from Rochester (snowed in, no doubt), Andrew, called in and had this to say... ANDREW: I´m a little afraid that Rush Limbaugh is gonna get Hillary Clinton elected. I´m a little afraid. SLEN: Why do you say that, Andrew? You´re calling on the Republican

While we were away, the Department of Health and Human Services offered what might be termed a concession to reality. In a Dec. 19 letter, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius informed Virginia´s Mark Warner and five other members of the Democratic Senate Caucus that what she called a "small number of consumers" would be granted an "exemption from the individual responsibility requirement" of ObamaCare during 2014. "Individual responsibility requirement" is HHS jargon for what is commonly called the "individual mandate" and is legally not a requirement or mandate at all but an additional tax on the income of Americans who lack medical insurance

The New Year brings us back to the number one reason liberals give regarding their war on America’s energy industry. Why does it take us there? Because this is more than a new year-- it’s an election year, and there are two different visions of the country that need to be contrasted for voters this year. And it’s not just the responsibility of candidates and political parties and super PACs to talk about what America can be. It’s your responsibility to do it too. You can do it over the fence post, or a soccer game or a cup of coffee, or over

New York City´s Mayor de Blasio has been sworn in, and his remarks at the ceremony proved that he is unabashed in his affection for progressivism. De Blasio vows to level the playing field, punish the rich, share the wealth, and further the progressive vision in the City That Never Sleeps. Mr. de Blasio´s words even made "bedeviled" Bill Clinton feel comfortable enough to acknowledge his usually deeply disguised radical left-leaning ideology. Speaking directly to Slick Willy, who attended with Hillary "Claw Her Way to the Top" Clinton, de Blasio said, "[O]ver 20 years ago, when a conservative philosophy seemed dominant,

"We will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period." (Barack Obama, June 15, 2009, with variants repeated many times since). Today, any American who isn´t willfully blind knows this "promise" is a very big lie. A lie which was deliberately told by fundamentally-dishonest pushers of Obamacare, because if the truth were widely known at that time the Affordable Care Act would never have become law.

Yesterday was a momentous day in New York City politics: Chiara de Blasio wore a festive hat, Miranda from Sex and the City made an appearance, and much cheering and merriment was had. Although some of it was reserved for Bill de Blasio´s inauguration and his ambitious plan to reduce the income gap, a lot of the joy was focused on Hillary Clinton´s new bangs. While some news outlets, like Vanity Fair, reported that they were "bangs," the Cut can confirm it: Those side-swept, layered, pieces of fluffy heaven resting ever so gently on our potential first lady president´s forehead

According to a detailed report, Kim Jong Un fed his Uncle Jang Song Thaek to a pack of hungry dogs, a deviation from the traditional method of execution by firing squad. "Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs." The report, appearing in a Chinese controlled newspaper, stated that the "execution" lasted for one hour and was supervised by Kim Jong Un and "300 senior officials."

Despite conventional wisdom, Republicans and Democrats can agree on important issues. As a lifelong Republican, I agree with Democrat Warren Buffett: Obamacare should be scrapped. I also agree with Hollywood liberals that NSA spying on millions of innocent Americans is a violation of our collective right to privacy. And I agree with feminist Camille Paglia that Hillary Clinton disqualified herself as a presidential candidate with her handling of Benghazi. Here’s why: The most important duty of the commander in chief is to keep Americans safe. Before the deadly Sept 11, 2012, attack resulting in the brutal murders of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens,

O.J. Simpson is receiving tests for brain cancer and is begging President Barack Obama for a pardon so he can die in peace at home, according to a new report. The jailed former football legend, who is serving out a kidnapping, assault and robbery sentence in a Nevada prison, is undergoing secret medical exams for a cancerous tumor in his brain and is convinced he hasn´t got long to live, The National Enquirer reports. The publication reported just months ago that the 66-year-old had such an extreme case of diabetes that his life was at risk and brain cancer would certainly add

Bitter cold. Below-zero. Blizzard conditions. Sorry, Northeast. But those are phrases you´ll be using a lot Friday amid a monster storm. And not just the Northeast, forecasters said. About one-third of the nation -- approximately 100 million people in 22 states -- is in the path this storm. But the Northeast will be hardest-hit, the National Weather Service said. "Heaviest snow will fall from central New York to the Massachusetts coast. Blizzard conditions are possible for eastern Long Island and the Massachusetts coast. Bitter cold will move into the Midwest and East following the storm," the Weather Service said. The

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un sentenced his uncle to be eaten alive by a pack of 120 wild dogs in a savage punishment for treachery, it has been claimed. Jang Song-Thaek, 67, along with five close aides, was stripped naked and thrown into a cage of hounds which had been starved for three days, according to new details emerging from China. The pack of animals spent more than an hour mauling the group in a punishment called ´quan jue´, or execution by dogs, a report in Chinese newspaper Wen Wei Po said.

MSNBC´s Chris Hayes is tired of conservatives snarking about global warming every time it gets cold. During his show Thursday evening, Hayes complained of the "strange bizarre underworld of climate trolls" that came to life when Matt Drudge ironically linked an article on the Drudge Report about cold weather. "Of course, no one ever said that climate change meant it wouldn´t ever be cold," Hayes said defensively, calling the annual tradition "willful stupidity" of conservatives "who delight being on the wrong side of history." Hayes admitted, however, that Drudge had been successful in creating a culture of global warming skepticism. "I mean, Drudge has

As the planet marked its fourth hottest year on record, a study published in the journal Nature found increasing levels of carbon dioxide will lead to thinner ocean clouds and reduce their cooling impact, causing temperature rises of at least 5.6F (3C) over the course of the century. The team of scientists said the findings show some climate models have been too “optimistic” and previous estimates of a minimum temperature rise of only 2.7F (1.5C) could now be discounted. The optimistic models did not properly assess the impact of water evaporation, which sometimes rises only a short distance into the atmosphere
