The Satirical Truth
New York Sun, by Editorial

“US TROOPS RAPIDLY PREPARE FOR NON-RESPONSE TO IRAQ SECURITY CRISIS.” That was the headline up earlier this week on one of our favorite publications, the DuffelBlog, the satirical Web site that calls itself the “American military’s most-trusted news source.” A flavor of DuffelBlog can be gained from one of its famous headlines, “Meet the Trailblazing Army Psychiatrist Treating PTSD With Hookers and Cocaine.” Let us just say that DuffelBlog is in the great American tradition of sardonic soldiering. “According to top Pentagon officials,” DuffelBlog is reporting, “American military units around the globe have launched into inaction following news that radical

Ratings, Programming Woes
Affect CNN´s Upfront AdBuys
Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 6/18/2014 6:42:00 PM     Post Reply
No longer able to compete as a news outlet, left-wing CNN has shifted its focus to documentaries like "The Sixties" and reality entertainment programming like "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown." Overall ratings have continued to tumble at the network, though, and now adbuyers are pushing back and refusing to pay premium advertising prices. According to Variety, adbuyers believe "News audiences can be purchased more efficiently elsewhere." Skepticism from buyers – a natural element of this yearly haggle – comes after CNN has reworked its positioning . The network, part of Time Warner’’s Turner unit,

Americans Spend Nearly $1,500

Every 60 seconds, Americans pour more about $7 million into the U.S. retail industry. Consumers buy an average of 1,440 McDonald’s burgers and 5,695 Starbucks drinks every minute of every day, according to an engrossing new infographic from Retale.com. It’s no surprise that Americans are big spenders — the U.S. retail market totaled $3.2 trillion last year, and it’s expected to climb even higher this year, with online retail growing at a rapid pace. By 2018, annual online spending is expected to surpass $2,000 per person, according to Forrester Research. Amazon alone sells more than $84,000 worth of items online

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq. Karl cited the op-ed which asserted that “rarely

Democratic senator Mark Udall of Colorado appears in a new TV ad targeting Republican congressman Cory Gardner for his opponent´s "beyond troubling" record on birth control and abortion. "Because this really matters, it´s important you hear this directly from me," says the Colorado Democrat at the beginning of the 30-second spot. "My opponent, Congressman Gardner, led a crusade that would make birth control illegal, sponsored a bill to make abortion a felony, even in cases of rape and incest." The ad features images of women and a young girl. Watch it below: (snip) Udall´s attack comes as the first-term Democrat

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) doesn’t believe the fight for marriage between one man and one woman is over. He says this fight is important in many ways and plans to be among the many faith and government leaders to speak out in support of traditional marriage at the 2014 March for Marriage in Washington, D.C., on June 19th. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the conservative congressman talked about the meaning of marriage between a man and a woman for all Americans. “The fight for marriage isn’t over at all, despite what the media want us to believe,” Huelskamp

The Collapsing Obama Doctrine

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama´s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. "If a J.V. team puts on Lakers´ uniforms that doesn´t make them Kobe Bryant" (January 2014). "[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated" (August 2013). "So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding" (September 2011). Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to

The Internal Revenue Service has told Congress that many of the emails to and from Lois Lerner were lost in a computer crash in 2011. "You´ve never heard of a computer crashing before?" White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday, when a reporter asked if that was a "reasonable explanation." "I think it´s entirely reasonable, because it´s the truth and it´s a fact, and speculation otherwise I think is indicative of the kinds of conspiracies that are propagated around this story," Earnest said.

Obama´s fake followers strongly

Breitbart Conversation, by John Hayward    Original Article

I´ve long been a student of a phenomenon I call "manufactured credibility," in which the Internet makes it easy to fake popularity and approval for everything from books and consumer products to politicians. One of my early writings on the subject was inspired by the saga of a guy who made good money running a business that supplied planted reviews to sites like Amazon.com. You paid a fee to his fairly large and sophisticated operation, and his people would flood the big consumer websites with highly convincing, authentic-sounding positive reviews for your book. What intrigues me about manufactured credibility is

Tuesday on Bloomberg TV, the campaign manager for Barack Obama´s 2008 presidential campaign David Plouffe weighed in on Hillary Clinton book tour to date, which critics have said has left much to be desired. According to Plouffe, Clinton is in a "leaning period" as a candidate, despite having been his main competitor in 2008 when he ran Obama´s campaign, which was in reference to her missteps last week at the launch of her book "Hard Choices." Plouffe said Hillary was simply in "spring training" when discussing her comment last week to ABC´s Diane Sawyer claiming that she and her husband

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) joined other California politicians and leading gay rights advocates in harshly criticizing San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone for participating in the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C., on June 19th. As SFGate reports, in a letter to Cordileone, Pelosi, a self-proclaimed Catholic who supports abortion on demand and same-sex marriage – both of which are against the teachings of the Catholic Church – described the March for Marriage event as “venom masquerading as virtue” and said the participants show “disdain and hate towards LGBT persons.” According to The Chronicle,

Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst dared Democrats to play the phony war on women card on her while addressing the Iowa GOP convention on Saturday. Ernst, an Iraq War veteran who serves in the National Guard, has led in three straight polls since winning the nomination and now leads her opponent, Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA), in the RealClearPolitics average of the polls after having trailed him throughout the campaign. "I have been to war, and if the Democrats are going to use that war, they had better do it to honor those men and women because those men and women

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid
says team will be ´forced´ to change name

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 6/18/2014 2:16:47 PM     Post Reply
In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

You said there were no doubts that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005. And you said after our intervention, extremists would have to "rethink their strategy of jihad." Now with almost a trillion dollars spent there

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly dissed conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh at an event in New York City Wednesday evening. According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue. O´Reilly conveniently ignored the

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning loss last week, Mr. Schweitzer initial response, according to a profile in The National Journal, was, “men in the South, they are a little effeminate.” “They just have effeminate mannerisms,” Mr. Schweitzer said. “If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent.” “But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know.

First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America. The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history,” she said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence. “And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.” Obama pointed out that the Founding Fathers pledged their
