Finally - Some Pushback Against the Three Stooges! *

*Obama, Pelosi and Reid, that is,...

The publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Sunday accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, of "bullying" his newspaper by telling an employee he wants the Review-Journal shut down.

Sherman Frederick alleged in a column in his newspaper that the "full-on threat" was made during a brief exchange between Reid and the newspaper's advertising director Wednesday at a luncheon for the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.

Frederick said that as Reid shook the employee's hand, he said, "I hope you go out of business."

While acknowledging that his newspaper does not always see "eye to eye with him on matters of politics," Frederick noted that ad director Bob Brown has "nothing to do with news coverage" or opinion pages.

It's unclear whether Reid's comment was meant in jest. A representative for Reid could not be reached for a response.

Obama,..Kennedy, ChappquidiCare (whatever) Going Down for the Count?

WASHINGTON (Aug. 29) - Signaling a fading chance for compromise, a leading Republican negotiator on U.S. health care legislation on Saturday criticized Democratic legislative proposals as budget-busters that would reroute spending for the elderly and restrict medical choices.

The criticism from Sen. Michael Enzi echoed that of many opponents of the Democratic plans under consideration in the U.S. Congress. But Enzi's judgment was especially noteworthy because he is one of only three Republicans who have been willing to consider a bipartisan bill in the Senate.

Delivering the Republicans' weekly radio and Internet address, Enzi said any health care legislation must lower medical costs for Americans without increasing deficits and the national debt.

"The bills introduced by congressional Democrats fail to meet these standards," he said.

Enzi, together with Republican Sens. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Olympia Snowe of Maine, has been holding periodic talks with Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus. But the chance of a bipartisan breakthrough has diminished this month in the face of an effective public mobilization by opponents of Democratic proposals.

The refusal by ABC and NBC to run a national ad critical of President Obama's health care reform plan is raising questions from the group behind the spot -- particularly in light of ABC's health care special aired in prime time last June and hosted at the White House.

The 33-second ad by the League of American Voters, which features a neurosurgeon who warns that a government-run health care system will lead to the rationing of procedures and medicine, began airing two weeks ago on local affiliates of ABC, NBC, FOX and CBS. On a national level, however, ABC and NBC have refused to run the spot in its present form.

"It's a powerful ad," said Bob Adams, executive director of the League of American Voters, a national nonprofit group with 15,000 members who advocate individual liberty and government accountability. "It tells the truth and it really highlights one of the biggest vulnerabilities and problems with this proposed legislation, which is it rations health care and disproportionately will decimate the quality of health care for seniors."


"The ABC Television Network has a long-standing policy that we do not sell time for advertising that presents a partisan position on a controversial public issue," spokeswoman Susan Sewell said in a written statement. "Just to be clear, this is a policy for the entire network, not just ABC News."

Surely, You Jest, Tierney,...

So, Brian "BRINO?" Tierney buys local newspapers from nasty, out-of-town and out-of-touch Knight-Ridder and promises a fresh start for Philadelphia newspapers.

He then promptly runs the business into the ground dispensing the same DNC-flavored Kool-Aid as every other major city press.

Now he's bankrupt and trying to re-organize without selling to another "outsider," huh?

Well, BRINO, here's a few ideas on how to bring the press back to respectability in Philly:

1. Sell off that "Newspaper That Shall Not Be Named" to a competitor. I know, I know: this is Philadelphia and between the Democratic Party, trade unions and the Phillies in the National League East, we no longer grasp the concept of "competition." But you used to run a business, Brian, so you should still remember the rules of capitalism - its what made this country.

2. Fire the ENTIRE editorial board. Bring in people who understand "fair and balanced." Hell, it works for Fox News,...

3. Stick to reporting NEWS. Michael Jackson isn't news. He's entertainment. Leave his plastic, pedophilic corpse to People Magazine. Hire reporters, not puppets with a leftist agenda.

If not, then here's to the New York Post opening up a branch here in town.

Joe says "Whoa!"

Is the Obamessiah's church of cards collapsing?

WASHINGTON -- An independent senator counted on by Democrats in the health care debate showed signs of wavering Sunday when he urged President Obama to postpone many of his initiatives because of the economic downturn.

"I'm afraid we've got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy's out of recession," said Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. "There's no reason we have to do it all now, but we do have to get started. And I think the place to start is cost health delivery reform and insurance market reforms."

The Senate requires 60 votes to overcome a filibuster and advance a measure to an up-or-down vote. Senators from both parties said that Democrats might use a voting tactic to overcome GOP opposition, abandoning the White House's goal of bipartisan support for its chief domestic priority.

Democrats control 60 votes, including those of two independents, but illness has sidelined Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and Robert Byrd, D-W.Va. The party's leaders also cannot be assured that their moderate members will support every health care proposal.

"I think it's a real mistake to try to jam through the total health insurance reform, health care reform plan that the public is either opposed to or of very, very passionate mixed minds about," Lieberman said.

Talk about resorting to this maneuver comes as Republicans dig in against the idea of a government-run insurance program as an option for consumers and a requirement that employers provide health insurance to their workers.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans would like to start over "with a genuine bipartisan approach."

Hmmm,..no wonder the DNC tried to oust him in 2006!

Bernie Madoff Reportedly Dying of Cancer

Convicted Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff is dying of cancer, sources told the New York Post.

Madoff, who is serving 150 years at a North Carolina federal prison after pleading guilty to swindling more than $65 billion, has been telling fellow inmate he doesn't have much longer to live.

"He's been taking about 20 pills a day for his cancer," one inmate told the newspaper. "He talks about it all the time. He's not doing very well."

Speculation has swirled as to why Madoff, 71, took sole responsibility for the scheme and rumors of his suffering from pancreatic cancer surfaced months before he arrived at the Butner, N.C., complex in June.

Madoff's attorney did not return messages yesterday but, when previously asked by the Post, would neither confirm nor deny his client has cancer. A lawyer for his wife, Ruth Madoff, also did not return messages.

Dick's Doesn't Sell Jerseys Worn by,..Well,...You Know,..

CHERRY HILL, N.J. - Michael Vick may be an Eagle, but a green No. 7 jersey may be hard to come by in some places.

That's because Dick's Sporting Goods will not be stocking or selling them.

A spokesperson for the sporting goods retailer announced that the chain won't carry the Vick jerseys until it "evaluates the reaction of Eagle fans," Fox 29's Nefertiti Jaquez reported from outside the Dick's in Cherry Hill on Thursday morning.

Of course, the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback was released from federal prison in May after serving 18 months for that dogfighting conviction.

One week ago, the Eagles signed him to a one-year contract with a club option for a second year.

And that signing has polarized the Eagles' fans and triggered a storm of controversy across the Delaware Valley and across the country.

That was enough, folks said at Dick's, to make them not want to sell the jersey.

I'm Beginning to Dislike Battlestar Galactica,....

And I'm taking the night off from using that pitiful excuse for a President as a verbal punching bag!

Gentle readers (and long-time followers - all 5-6 of you judging by my hit counter), you know I don't post much about my personal life on this blog. I hoping that in doing so tonight, I can exorcise a few demons that are haunting my dreams most nights.

A few weeks ago, my mother - an old Italian-American bird hobbling her way to 90 - passed out and fell at home and was rushed to the hospital. She was in declining health, but nothing this bad since getting carbon monoxide poisoning in the early 90s, before it was chic to have CO detectors all over your house.

After a few days in the ICU, with highly-trained specialists poking and prodding her, ruling out one problem after another and generally scratching their heads and going WTF?, Mom's primary care doctor intervened.

And came the phone call my brothers and I expected but didn't expect: Mom's heart was failing. The veritable pantheon of pharmocopeia had begun to loose its efficacy - too much of one will stop her kidneys, too much of the other will stop her heart, etc,...

We began to talk of weeks and months. Mom was basically cleaned up and shipped off to a local nursing home to live out her days comfortably. A few days ago, the doctor now treating her at the nursing home was a little more blunt about her condition: "You know she's dying, right?" was the answer to some of my concerns about her care. We are now talking in terms of days,...

So, what does this tale of personal woe have to do with Battlestar Galactica, you might ask?

Ever since Mom became ill, my dreams have been party to multiple variations on the BSG themes of annihilation. The SciFi channel would pay through the nose to have access to what I'm dreaming: disintegrating beams killing off humans, but leaving buildings standing, and watching fatalists who believe "this has happened before, it will happen again" commit suicide before my eyes; outright war and occupation by the Cylons leading to interment camps and Nazi-style final solutions and seeing and hearing the humans as they are incinerated in modern-day ovens; being in the thick of a space battle as we're overwhelmed and tossed into the vacuum of space when the ship's integrity fails. And so on,...

I don't know whether to curse or congratulate the creators of this oh-so-realistic Battlestar Galactica for getting so far into my psyche.

Maybe I'll find the answer at the bottom of the next bottle of Jack.

I'll let you know,...

Now, What's the Obamessiah's Excuse?

Dr. Anne Doig, the incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association, said her country’s health care system is “sick” and “imploding,” the Canadian Press reported.

“We know there must be change,” Doig said in a recent interview. “We’re all running flat out, we’re all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands.”

Canada’s universal health care system is not giving patients optimal care, Doig added. When her colleagues from across the country gather at the CMA conference in Saskatoon Sunday, they will discuss changes that need to be made, she said.

“We all agree the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize,” she said.

Current president of the CMA, Dr. Robert Ouellet, will make a presentation at the conference about his findings when he toured Europe in January, and met with health groups in several countries.

Ouellet has said that “competition should be welcomed, not feared,” meaning private health insurance should have a role in the public health system.

Doig said she isn’t sure what kind of changes will be proposed when the conference wraps up, but she does know that changes have to come – and fast. She said she understands that universal health care, while good in some ways, has not always been helpful for sick people or their families.

"(Canadians) have to understand that the system that we have right now — if it keeps on going without change — is not sustainable," Doig said.

NYT: Americans - Not Just Bitter, but Stupid, Too?

Citizens opposed to Obama's health-care overhaul are not only white, irritable, and angry, as the New York Times has confirmed in two front-page stories -- they're ignorant as well.

That's the new wrinkle reporter David Stout brings to the debate, in his web-only report Wednesday afternoon on congressional town hall meetings across the country dominated by health-care concerns, "For Lawmakers, Health-Plan Anger Keeps Coming."

Lawmakers ran into fresh anger and skepticism on Wednesday as they fielded questions from constituents worried about changes in the health care system, and about a lot of other things having to do with government.

The queries hurled at legislators from the Atlantic Seaboard to the nation's midsection reflected deep-seated fears, a general suspicion of government and, in some cases, a lack of knowledge on the part of the questioners.

"Why does the government want to rush into this bill when many don't want it?" Senator Ben Cardin, Democrat of Maryland, was asked at a "town meeting" in Hagerstown. "Why are you rushing this?"

Calmly, the senator replied in a snippet shown on CNN, "We've got to take as much time as we need to get it right." And he added, "The status quo is unacceptable."

Stout raised a picky and condescending objection (and avoided the fact that Democrats control the House, Senate, and presidency):

The senator was too polite (or intent on survival) to correct his questioner by pointing out that there is not one bill yet, but rather several proposals working their way through five committees in both houses of Congress, and that to talk of "the government" as a single entity makes no sense, at least in this context, because of the divisions between Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, Capitol Hill and the White House.

The Times never went to such great lengths to correct left-wing anti-war protesters who carried "No Blood for Oil!" signs, or called President Bush a fascist.

Ridiculous Maddow Paints NewsBusters as Vehicle of ‘Right-Wing’ ‘Intimidation’

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow “apologized” on Friday for her false report the previous night that conservative public relations executive Craig Shirley was somehow behind a Web site that hosted incendiary anti-Obama video, a site funded by a group called Grassfire.org. “I apologize for saying that they [Shirley & Banister Public Affairs] were still currently involved in representing Grassfire. They are not,” she admitted.

Undeterred, Maddow then ludicrously tried to impugn Shirley & Banister by connecting them to the anti-ObamaCare protests (as if that would be a bad thing) through a convoluted set of associations. She then displayed Friday’s NewsBusters’ article on her wrong reporting as evidence that “right-wing Web sites” were using “threats and intimidation” to pressure Maddow to back off.

“I will not and we will not be intimidated out of covering the news,” Maddow pompously declared.

MSM Losing Track of Their Lies

The media have repeatedly stated how "angry," "hostile" and "ugly" town hall meetings across America are becoming. They are of course largely ascribing the nastiness to conservatives voicing their opposition to (among other things) President Barack Obama and Congress' proposed government takeover of the health care system.

The press has been particularly offended by the "extreme" use of references to Adolf Hitler specifically and Nazis generally. One image they have repeatedly used as an example of this alleged right-wing extremism is a poster of President Obama - on whose face a Hitler mustache has been Photo Shopped - bearing the caption "I've Changed."

NBC's August 7 Nightly News comes as close as possible to saying Limbaugh printed and distributed the Obama-with-Mustache posters himself without actually doing so. As they show the image, reporter Kelly O'Donnell's voiceover proffers "Some anger on display gets stoked by the provocative megaphone of Rush Limbaugh" as they then immediately cut to video and audio of Limbaugh.

On Sunday's Meet the Press, David Gregory's voiceover at the time of their Obama-with-Mustache visual is "but the rhetoric has become extreme." The voiceover lands on the word "extreme" when the Obama-with-Mustache poster appears, and they too then immediately cut to video and audio of Limbaugh.

But here's the video capture of the poster ascribed to Limbaugh:

Note that at the bottom one lucky person, Steve Gutkowski, observes a website URL:

That's right! Lyndon LaRouche! Here's the "official" version:

For written at the poster's bottom is the web address "LaRouchePAC.com," the political action committee website for Communist and perpetual Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche.

The Obama-with-Mustache sign is in fact offered up on LaRouche's website as a "Mass Distribution Poster." It is an enormous full color .pdf suitable for all your town hall Communist protest needs.

If only the media had invested the five seconds I did to discover this.

So, Where IS America, Arlen?

After weeks of Town Hall meetings, common citizens venting their fury at a coming Socialist society and Congress critters cowering in fear, THIS is Specter's response:

Washington (AP) - Sen. Arlen Specter said Wednesday he thinks people who have been angrily disrupting town hall meetings on overhauling the health care system are "not necessarily representative of America," but should be heard.

"It's more than health care," said Specter, 79, who earlier this year left the Republican Party and became a Democrat. "I think there is a mood in America of anger with so many people unemployed, with so much bickering in Washington ... with the fear of losing their health care. It all boils over."

Specter and Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, appeared on a nationally broadcast news show Wednesday, a day after town hall meetings they hosted erupted in the same kind of catcalls, jeers and shouting that has characterized many such forums in recent weeks. "There were a couple of tough moments," McCaskill said of her experience, "but it lasted two hours and there were thousands of people there."

Jeers and taunts drowned out both Specter and McCaskill on occasion Tuesday. President Barack Obama was treated more respectfully at his town hall meeting in New Hampshire.

"You'll be gone, by God the bureaucrats will still be here," one man told Specter at a session in Lebanon, Pa.

Palin Calls Obama Health Plan 'Evil'

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Aug. 7) -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called President Barack Obama's health plan "downright evil" Friday in her first online comments since leaving office, saying in a Facebook posting that he would create a "death panel" that would deny care to the neediest Americans.

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care," the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote.

"Such a system is downright evil," Palin wrote on her page, which has nearly 700,000 supporters. She encouraged her supporters to be engaged in the debate.
The claim that the Democratic health care bills would encourage euthanasia has been circulating on the Internet for weeks and has been echoed by some Republican leaders.

The allegation appears to be based on a provision of the House bill that would require Medicare to pay for end-of-life counseling sessions, on a voluntary basis, for beneficiaries who want the service. Medicare already covers hospice care. And legislation passed by Congress in 1990 requires that patients be asked if they have a living will.

Obama addressed the controversy during a July 28 AARP-sponsored town hall.
"Nobody is going to be forcing you to make a set of decisions on end-of-life care based on some bureaucratic law in Washington," he said.

Palin, popular with conservatives in the Republican party, has said she wants to build a right-of-center coalition, and there is speculation she will seek the presidency in 2012. In the two weeks since she resigned, Palin has made only one public appearance, giving a Second Amendment rights speech last Saturday before a gun owners group in Anchorage.

Racism! (Redux)

The St. Louis Tea Party coalition joins in the call for apologies from Carnahan, SEIU, and President Obama. This criminal attack was inspired by DNC and BarackObama.com propaganda. Only Thursday morning, the White House promised “punch back twice as hard.” Clearly, the goons of SEIU decided to draw the first blood.

We believe that this attack was planned and intended to create a riot to discredit the American political resistence. Luckily, the patriots who attend tea parties and town halls did not take the bait. Mr. Gladney did not fight back. Mr. Gladney, like Crispus Attucks, suffered for the promise of freedom — the freedom his race was so long denied. We salute Kenneth Gladney. We are proud that he is on our side.

We all pray for Ken. May he recover quickly and fully from his injuries inflicted by leftist thugs in an attempt to subvert his First Amendment rights.

Big Brother "O" is Watching You!

1984 or 2009??

Liberal Democrats have launched a war of outrageous hate speech directed at Americans who haved dared to express opposition to Obama's health care "reform."

First, the Democratic National Committee launched a Web video charging "desperate Republicans and their well-funded allies" with "organizing angry mobs" to "destroy President Obama." Then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused town hall protestors of "carrying swastikas."

In response this morning, MRC President Brent Bozell called on the mainstream media "to report on this hate speech, who is behind it and how vicious it has become."

Mr. Bozell's full August 5 statement is printed below:

Liberals are not only grasping at the straws of desperation to protect this radical government takeover, they have crossed into unabashed hate speech. Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have never said anything like this. Yet they are accused of hate speech. To put it another way, if Limbaugh and Hannity are guilty of hate speech, how much worse are these liberals?

The third in line to the Presidency just characterized Americans exercising their First Amendment rights as Nazis. Imagine if the Bush White House had launched the same attacks against Iraq War demonstrators. They would have chastised, lambasted and made a target of destruction by every national media outlet.

The media have a responsibility to report on this hate speech, who is behind it and how vicious it has become.

Racism! Racism!

All those who oppose the Obamessiah are racists?

In a one-line blog post, "Health Reform: Euthanasia and Other Rumors," Time magazine's Karen Tumulty pointed readers to a blog post at The New Republic's Web site set on "Exposing the Euthanasia Scare" that has cropped up in the debate over health care reform:

Harold Pollack dispenses with them (and their sources) here.

Tumulty failed to mention the liberal bent of either TNR or Dr. Pollack (Ph.D., not M.D.), which would have been helpful considering her terse blog post practically amounted to an unqualified stamp of approval of Pollack's August 4 item.

Albeit in kinder, gentler language, Pollack posited that opposition to socialized medicine among American senior citizens was due to racism, xenophobia, and homophobia (emphasis mine):

At a deeper level, these talking points go beyond the usual Medicare politics and pander. Seniors comprise right-wing talk-radio's core audience, but the anxiety extends beyond retired ditto-heads. A conspicuous number of scare stories pitched to seniors suggest that the main beneficiaries of health reform will be various frightening others. These listeners have endured dizzying social change, ranging from gay marriage to the rise of immigrants (legal and illegal) as a powerful political and demographic force. This predominantly white group watched an unprecedented youth vote fuel the unlikely ascendance of a black president with an Islamic middle name.

For millions of older people, America suddenly seems very different from the country they once knew. So when President Obama asks seniors to trust him as they trusted many Democrats before him, even his remarkable persuasive powers sometimes fall short.

DoubleStandarddradnatSelbuoD! Obama Doesn't Like Being Played!

LOS ANGELES -- A poster showing President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" is creating a stir on the streets of Los Angeles where the image began appearing over the weekend.

The Obama-Joker poster shows President Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word "socialism" printed in bold, dark letters under the image of his face.

It's unclear who created the image and who is posting it across the city. No one has taken credit so far.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

"Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."

"We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama."

The poster has also gone viral online, crashing the website that first posted images of it and rising to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.


The Obamessiah can't take a joke and the liberals are up in arms! But THIS was OK for the better part of 8 years?

This is Too Good to Be True!

Peering behind the curtain and exposing the Obamistake's lies are an "embarrassment?"

NEW YORK (Aug. 3) -- He's become a publicity nightmare for CNN, embarrassed his boss and hosted a show that seemed to contradict the network's "no bias" brand. And on top of all that, his ratings are slipping.

How does Lou Dobbs keep his job? (Thick Kneepads?? - BA)

It's not a simple answer. CNN insists it is standing behind Dobbs, despite calls for his head from critics of his reporting on "birthers" — those who believe President Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States despite convincing evidence to the contrary. The "birthers" believe Obama was born in Kenya, and thus not eligible to be president.

Dobbs' work has been so unpopular that even Ann Coulter has criticized him.
Dobbs has acknowledged that he believes Obama was born in Hawaii. But he gives airtime to disbelievers, and has said the president should try to put questions fully to rest by releasing a long version of his birth certificate. He's twice done stories on his show after the public leak of a memo from CNN U.S. President Jon Klein saying that "it seems this story is dead."

Dobbs hasn't made it any easier by using his radio show to fight back at critics, who he called "limp-minded, lily-livered lefty lemmings." He considered going on CNN tormentor Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show to thank him (O'Reilly says the birthers are wrong, but he defended Dobbs' right to talk about it).
"He's embarrassed himself and he's embarrassed CNN," said Brooks Jackson, a former CNN correspondent. "And that's not a good thing for any network that wants to be seen as a reputable, nonpartisan news organization."

Betcha He's Re-Thinking Obamacare,...

NB: I'm not making fun at the disease, just the irony of those involved,.....

Sen. Christopher Dodd said Friday he has been diagnosed with an early stage of prostate cancer and will have surgery in August during the Senate recess.

The Connecticut Democrat, 65, says he feels fine and is "confident we're going to come out of this well." He says he was diagnosed about six weeks ago, but the diagnosis will not affect his plans to seek a sixth term next year.

"I'm running for re-election," he told reporters at his Hartford office. "I'll be a little leaner, a little meaner, but I'm running."

Dodd is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and is playing a lead role in Congress' overhaul of the nation's health care system. He took that role while his close friend, Senate health committee Chairman Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts fights his own battle with brain cancer.
