There's a "local paper" I get weekly stories from here in Nevada. I love most of their stories. Sometimes it takes a different vantage point to see the trees from the forest. Take this article; The True Story Of Stockman Vs. Rove By FLOYD BROWN Contributing Editor One of the most laughable stories coming out of this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is the hullabaloo about the “Stockman Party.” In case you missed it, Texas Congressman Steve Stockman supposedly hosted an “awesome” hot tub party on the Saturday night after CPAC concluded. The Washington Post characterized it this way: “The real-life CPAC party, held at a suite in the *** Hotel, where the conference was taking place, featured an expletive-spewing congressman, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.), offering $20 to whoever would jump into the bathroom’s hot tub, according to Slate’s Dave Weigel. Weigel witnessed Stockman, the quirky challenger who was just crushed by Sen. John Cornyn in the state’s senate R ...
Republicans Take Their Tea Party Frame to the Logical Conclusion: Fight King Obama A new theme is emerging for the November elections, a repeat from the Congressional elections of 1775, had there been some. A king — President Obama — is trying to tell us what to do, and we — Republican patriots — won't allow it. This was predictable. Let us begin by watching this advertisement from Texas candidate for lieutenant governor Todd Staples. This is a pretty zeitgeisty ad (which we saw via Dave Weigel). *** marriage, guns, the whole thing. But it's predicated on this idea that Obama is a king, which, Staples emphatically informs the president, he is not. "Texans bow to no one," Staples says, reminding people that Obama has sort-of-bowed to people in the past, including kings. Oh, and then Staples says he'll "fight Obama's liberal agenda," illustrated by Staples aiming a shotgun at something (a photo of a king??) in a gun store. The ad ends: "So Mr. President, if you still want to mess with Texas: Come an ...

Profiles in October Surprise: Obama's 'Real' Dad ObamasRealFather.com Share Print article Email article Comments (27) ELSPETH REEVE 8,936 ViewsOCT 15, 2012 The top ad on the Drudge Report Monday was for Dreams from My Real Father, a conspiracy movie about President Obama that exposes his true genealogy: he's not the son of a Kenyan anti-colonialist, as birthers may have lead you to believe but of an American alleged communist and sexual libertine named Frank Marshall Davis. This is one of many October surprises, stunts designed to throw the presidential election one way or the other. The Atlantic Wire will be profiling them until Election Day. The plan: Director Joel Gilbert sure hopes his film will be a poll-moving surprise -- he's mailed millions of copies to voters in swing states. The mailers are to "bypass the establishment media blackout on his film," birther site World Net Daily reports.

Mainstream media downplays, ignores jihad threat The mainstream media's complicity with the jihad and Islamic supremacism is nothing new. I have frequently noted how hopelessly compromised pro-jihad pseudo-journalists in the U.S., such as Christiane Amanpour, Manya Brachear, Bob Smietana, Kari Huus, Dave Weigel, Michael Kruse, Eli Clifton, Alex Kane, Adam Serwer, Max Blumenthal, etc., are cutting their own throats by propagandizing for Sharia and defaming freedom fighters. This piece shows the other side: they ignore jihad activity and even crimes committed by Muslims, out of an immovable conviction that Muslims are and can only be victims, not perpetrators of violence. "Jihad? What Jihad? Media Shrug At Islamic Threat," from Investor's Business Daily, March 1: Homeland Insecurity: The attorney general says the threat from local jihadists is now worse than terrorist plots hatched overseas.

This is how the far right of the GOP is functioning in today's world: "On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.” Hey, guess what, that is just a totally made-up group that does not exist. Dave Weigel did this crazy thing where he actually spent some time looking into the claim and it turns out, whoops, Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro published a made-up, untrue thing, because Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro is both a liar and a moron. (Mostly moron.) Hint No. 1 should probably have been that a pro-Hamas front group would not call itself “Friends of Hamas.” Despite (or because of) the fact that this “Friends of Hamas” thing was a not terribly convincing lie, it was repeated all over the conservativ ...

Dave Weigel describes the GOP approach to Hillary Clinton's long-awaited testimony on the Benghazi attacks: Watching it, I'm struck by the division between two kinds of Republicans. Group One has questions about the timing of the Benghazi attack, what the State Department could have done to prevent it, what it can do now. Group Two wants the truth, *** it, about the talking points that Susan Rice used on the Sunday shows after the attacks. Group One basically consisted of Marco Rubio. Group Two was everybody else. I only watched a few bits and pieces of the testimony, and I missed Rubio. All I saw was Rand Paul grandstanding about how he would have fired Hillary, Ron Johnson being an obvious *** and John McCain practicing his glower. All together, I didn't hear a single question that wasn't a transparent partisan attack. Apparently Republican senators are still consumed with rage that their concocted stories about Susan Rice somehow failed to resonate with the public and produce an epic defeat for Bar ...
Rand Paul: A Bottom Line: He, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz owned GOP criticism of Obama this week. Republicans wanted these guys to step up (well, wanted Rubio and Cruz), and they're immediately making an impact. Paul's only miss? His son's arrest. Will there be ongoing familial drama? But his take on Israel -- more nuanced and mainstream than his dad's -- emerged, and sets him up as a more viable electoral option. Also, in Dave Weigel's interview with him, Rand Paul said "If I'm the mayor of Jerusalem", which is way funnier a sentence than he probably intended. a.

Media Bias and Two RNC Racist Incidents Two racial incidents occurred within the context of the Republican National Convention. In one incident the Wikipedia page for Mia Love was defaced with slurs such as “House N***er” and “dirty, worthless wh**e.”Wikipedia is the first search result on Google and with an explosion of searches for her name after her convention speech, millions of people may have seen the slurs. The only major media outlet to report on this racist incident is FOX News. A few local Utah outlets also mentioned the story. Dave Weigel at Slate sneered that the racist vandalism was a ploy to raise money for Love. The media instead chose to give widespread coverage to a report of two individuals at the convention who threw peanuts at an unnamed African-American CNN camerawoman and was quickly thrown out. The incident isn’t completely surprising given the large number of Ron Paul supporters who had come to the convention and their disruptive behavior there. The peanuts incident has ...
