We Live Under a
Media Coup d’État

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/2/2012 7:29:16 AM

Coup d’états come in a variety of forms. Some are violent with arrogant colonels pointing forty-fives at the temples of their predecessors and blowing their brains out; others are stealthy with the citizens awakening on an ordinary morning to find their whole world has changed yet not a drop of blood has been shed. The latter is what has happened in America. We are the victims of a media coup d’état and are currently living under it. You will see that clearly in evidence on Wednesday night when the debates commence, each one moderated by a member

My father used to say, "Line them up against the wall and shoot them," but I suppose that's advocating violence, which would never do. s/o
However, traitors used to be executed. Now they are celebrated. No wonder we are falling apart.

This is a very insightful article. But a funny thing happened on the way to the coup -- the internet.

Starting with Drudge, who's huge fame and fortune owes to the fact that Newsweek spiked the story on BJ Clinton. Then LittleGreenFootballs became famous for exposing the fraud that was Dan Rather (LGF has since revered back to the dark side). Many other examples, but Breitbart comes to mind with the Weiner tweeting story (and I am still suspicious of Andrew's death).

Its going to take more time because the current in favor of the leftists is strong, but we've already seen the death of the news paper industry and the move to online for them. But I do get the sense that we are gaining ground in this area. Hopefully its not too late.

HOW do you hold them accountable? They have no regard for their falling revenues. I don't want my government taking control of the media. I'm in my 60's and the media, certain parts of it, openly admitted that they misreported the Vietnam war in order to fulfill their agenda. We have been manipulated all of my life by this corrupt media and they have paid no price. If the media is considered by the people of the USA to be the fifth arm of the government and the one that holds our government accountable, they are a miserable, shameful, failure.

I'm always reminded of that scene in Evita where the people trash the offices of the newspaper "La Prensa." No true American would advocate violent overthrow of the government itself, which is forbidden by the Constitution anyway, but violent overthrow of the mainstream media isn't a bad idea. It wouldn't even have to be particularly violent. The wusses who work there would run with their tails between their legs at the first sign of trouble.

Nathan Rothschild in essence said: Control the money, control a country.

Sheldon Emry: "Conquest by the sword has rebellion as a consequence and needs constant force to maintain control. Conquest by debt can occur so insidiously that the conquered don't even realize they have new masters. Tribute is collected in the form of debt and taxes that the people believe they are paying for their own good. Their captors become the benefactors and protectors. Without realizing it, they are conquered and the instruments of their own society are used to transfer wealth to their captors and make the conquest complete.

We are inundated with the greatest debt any country in history has suffered. Has the war been lost?

There is a book titled, "None Dare Call It Treason" that if anyone in here hasn't read it, needs to read it if they can find it. It shows how the media has been infiltrated by communists, and this book was written in the '60s, so it's been a long, slow process and now they are entrenched.

Watergate was a media coup d'etat. I spotted it at the time and agonized over what was happening. It was a lonely time for me. Of course, I was nobody. But it was a lonely time also for the few Reoubican politicians who dared to stick by Nixon when everyone elser was running for cover and the people of our country stood dumbly by not sure what happened but knowing that somehow whatever it was Nixon was to blame.

More peoople understand now but Obama is giving our money away with both hands and has a big following of people withs their own hands stretched out. It may be too late. As the Jewish saying goes: "Too soon old, too late smart." That's ironic since most of them still haven't smartened up.

Don't be sdurprised if it is too late and don't blame Romney. It's late in the day to save our Republic. I was for Romney in 2008 but McCain and Huckabee very smartly teamed up to knock him out and many Ldotters were warning us of the dangers of the Mormon religion. .

All of this is so well known now and yet the Republicans still do not see that their real opponent is the MSM and refuse to run against them. Newt tried and did well until he inexplicably stopped. Then his campaign fell apart.

We may well have to start over. We have a set of guidelines already - called the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

All we'd have to do is FOLLOW THEM. Combined with the Bible, it's all we need to form a workable government and conduct ourselves accordingly, appropriately.

Who's up for it?

Imagine a world without liberals.......

Something else folks may be interested in is a documentary on the same subject called "Agenda: Grinding down America"

Unfortunately, even if Gov. Romney manages to defeat Obama in the election, the problem will still remain. Remember the Bush years? Everything Mr. Bush did was stupid; every problem was his fault.

For seven of W's eight years in office, the economy was growing, but it was never reported. Anything good or wise or pleasant that he did was played down or unmentioned. Anything at all that went wrong (Katrina?) was blamed on him.

If Gov. Romney were to win the coming elections, expect more of the same. It's not just that the media have become an arm of the Democrat Party, but the media seem to consider the Democrat Party to be their political action arm.

I haven't seen a shift personally. Are these fanatics or has Fox moved center left ?

An awful lot of folks get their news from the internet and from radio broadcasts. Cannot watch the MSM when you are driving. I have not watched a newscast from a MSM outlet in 10 years, not a single one, period. It is like reading a book with many pages missing. Nor do i read anything written in a left-leaning newspaper. There are so many ways to get truthful, complete news facts, why not go there. I can stream live news from all over the Country on my computer,

Media bias comes as no surprise to most of us, but what is troubling is the fact that our Republican leaders seem to have lost the will to fight. There are those who could call press conferences but we hear nothing from them regarding the Benghazi attacks. Where is the leadership in that regard? Frankly, I am fearful that there is so much corruption in both parties that we have passed the point of no return. Blaming the media is just scratching the surface. It goes deeper than that. There is no leadership in place to make an attempt to counter the propaganda. Breitbart had it right. He was fearless in confronting the lies and misrepresentations. History will not be kind to those in power who stood by and did nothing. Edmund Burke words ring especially true today.

There are umpteen American reporters whose writings we view daily right here and on the Drudge blog. We have also been blessed with some recovering Democrat news people who contintue to speak out for America ... such voices as Bernie Goldberg, author of BIAS ... and Pat Caddell of today's news.

I believe.
I believe that Good will win over the Evil.
I believe Old Media will crash and burn.
.... Old Media, after all, has become the voice of Evil.

I'd like to see someone with enough juice (Limbaugh?) call for an all out boycott of the msm, starting with NYT. Cancel subscriptions. Stop reading their articles on the internet. And, know that, if NYT prints anything important we need to know about, a few intrepid news junkies will have reviewed the article and posted it to Lucianne.com.

In reply to #21, yes, Fox News is changing.
Virtually every program has to have a person to argue both sides. Some opinion pieces seem partial to the Left. They are so busy being fair and balanced that they are starting to tilt. I want factual news and if it is partial to one side or the other, I want the person to state his/her position. Hannity is Conservative and he makes no bones about it, as an example. Beckel is sickenly left, even when he is blatantly wrong. Another example.

It's a stealth coup d' etat that's been 4 or 5 decades in the making. It's only obvious now because they believe they are finally in complete control, and so they are brazen about it.

The groundwork was laid in our schools and universities. Year after year, wave upon wave of fresh new liberals...infesting every institution of our society. Now they feel the power of their numbers, so they are openly conspiring to suppress any opposition. They are consolidating their power.

I'm not even sure that an election victory alone will be enough to rid us of this infestation. Among other things, they have diabolically torn down our borders and invited and supported a massive invasion to swell their numbers. And they continue to try to ridicule and shame anyone who speaks out against the invasion.

No, more than just a win in this election may be needed to reverse this coup.

If I may scream:
IF THE MODERATE AND CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY (we are still the majority!) DOES NOT GET OFF THEIR DUFFS AND VOTE (for Romney) THEN THEY WILL GET THE GOVERNMENT THEY DESERVE.

And if they do not vote, then I don't want to hear another griping word about America.
And to Laura Ingram, Bill Kristol, Peggy Noonan, Joe Scarborough-YOU WERE COMPLICIT IN THE FALL OF AMERICA if Romney loses, imho.Just as you were complicit in helping obama get elected by your trashing of and/or constant griping about George W. Bush when he was in office. You weakened our side. And for what? Your purity...or was it your ratings?

I have had ENOUGH.I hope everyone has, too. WE ARE NOT VICTIMS AND WE CAN DEFEAT THE MEDIA...IF.WE.ARE.WILLING.

Please, anyone, tell me WHY Romney accepted the debates with all liberal moderators. Why do we roll over an play dead when it comes to standing up to the media? We must accept the fact that they will never be objective to us no matter the situation. This is about as asinine as McCain's strategy in 2008 never to speak harshly about BHO.

I agree with Jack Cashill. There is a conservative media that is cowardly. They refuse to confront the frauds of Obama. They are complicit with this media coup. Also, the Republican party as well. What sane person would agree to such a debate, where your enemy is the moderator. Your political foe's surrogates are the moderators. As Jeffrey Lord stated today: 'Obama has already won the debate'....the media will assure.
Look at Ed Gillespie for instance. Quinn Gillespie & Associates (QGA) is an American bipartisan lobbying and communications firm founded in 2000 by Republican political strategist Ed Gillespie and Democratic operative Jack Quinn, WH counsel to Bill Clinton. This coup is also aided by Karl Rove, David Brooks, David Frum, Bill Kristol,Mike Murphy, and other Republican elites.
There is a conservative media in bed with the liberal media.

Yeah, the Internet is a wondeful thing, but if Obama gets re-elected, you don't think he won't issue another Executive Order to strictly control its content under the guise of national security because only aftee he gets re-elected will he then acknowledge that Al Qaeda is not dead and thus, have to control everyhting in order to protect us.

Moderators? Who needs ‘em!

There’s absolutely nothing moderate about the moderators who have been selected to moderate the final four debates leading up to this election.

Hidden agendas, as they always do, will reign supreme. Liberal bias will stealthily insinuate itself throughout the upcoming presidential and vice-presidential word wars. I’ve been harping on this issue for what seems like forever.

Here’s my bare bones version: This is not about County Supervisor or State Assembly. It’s about POTUS and VPOTUS. With only a timekeeper to guarantee fairness, just turn the candidates loose to question or challenge or accuse each other and let the American people evaluate how well or how poorly they do under pressure; not staged, not rehearsed, “without a net.”

This is not showbiz. This is real life. Ultimately, yours and mine!

We need a true all conservative cable network. One that won't have on a Juan Williams every other minute. No fair and balanced stooges. We also should start recruiting young people to the conservative philosphy and ideology. It's time to think ahead a few years. If we can raise millions of dollars for a political candidate, we can also lay a foundation for the future.
I feel the conservatives are constantly being drowned out by all the liberal noise in the media. It's time we get a megaphone and not be afraid to use it.

Intuitively we all knew it was more than just media bias. The untruths and the omissions have become startling. We have been focused on the wrong enemy, it is not the empty chair guy, it's the media. Their power has escalated. The new media of the Internet can only reach those who are educated, read and have interest. As for the others......

WHy did the Romney camp go along with accepting the Libs as moderators? Many of us groaned when we heard it.

There is no [gay] media coup d'etat. It is a coup d'etat of the mind, made cosmic by biased education, peter panism, apostasy as art, and a lifetime of drugs. That there will be an Anti-Christ who is accepted by all indicates the world will be starving for a new kind of leadership that accepts a changing world character. Since we are laughing at the principled leaders we know, for not being not hipper than thou, we are destined to get the other kind. The traitor to principled values, or traitor for short. This man will kick you in the teeth, take everything you have including your soul, and tell you it's for your own good. And if your friends have a handful of teeth, and a pervert's tingle up their legs, what can a sheep like you do but go along to get along, proudly wearing the uniform of the 4th Reich. Those in the media will be so proud that their uniform has the pink epaulets.

Re FNC: just this morning, Hemmer and Martha referred to tommorrow's debate a "game" with "pre and post"game analysis hyping for viewers. Its all about promotion.We had a Border Guard murdered today in AZ,and another wounded. less than 30sec.one line sentence and more when we get it. 5 yrs ago it would have been camers,onsite commentary and minutes dedicated.

Now, however,all outlets seem to wait until some techy can send tweets,e-mails or some-such and the California guy can get back to them. What we hear from the "hosts" is the same thing we read on the "crawl"

Yes. I suppose the news today IS a game of personalities how "clever" the producers can be to intrepret what the Assoc. Press and Reuters believes `we need to be told" and how the outlet chooses to present it.

The greater game that the media is playing is with Islam. It is a greater threat to this country than any economic factors--which, by the way, are huge. So, we are going to lose our religious freedom because they are hiding the truth and seriousness of the threat posed by the spread of Islam.

We may only be able to stem the tide if Romney wins, but it will buy us and our children some time.

Watergate turned reporters into stars and with that came the vanity and arrogance associated with the famous. Dan Rather was proud he had helped to bring down a president, so much so that he tried it again with Bush but it exploded in his face instead.

The problem is the media became personalities and acted accordingly. The issues became less important and their egos and the money drove their actions. Rather perverted the expulsion of a flawed president with his own personal glory. Instead of seeing it as a sad task he was required to do, he took pleasure in it. Media personalities decided it was their job to make their mark in the world instead of simply reporting the news. Reporting wasn't good enough any more.

But I question the success of the coup. Most people do NOT trust the media. The more the media swings to their personal agenda, the more that people realize that they are not to be trusted. People know that alternatives exist and they are going to those alternatives as newspaper and TV users continue to decline. So if the media has taken over the palace, they may find that they have occupied an almost vacant building.

In addition to voting republican and praying that God's Will be done on November 6, I agree with what #28 and #37 said. I will continue to boycott MSM and will continue to get my daily news from Lucianne and Drudge. I refuse to be told how and what to think while watching the debates moderated, edited and reported on by MSM libs.

Fox News is the best out there, but it crossed the line when Santita Jackson became a commentator. Jesse Jackson's racism is blatantly obvious in every answer she gives. Did we really need more of that? She sits there with her immovable face except for the racist mouth that rapidly blathers over anyone else in the room.

I do watch a few other channels just for research purposes and invariably end up mad. BRENT BOZELL IS A TRUE AMERICAN HERO.

# 7, I believe Congress voted against it, when zero signed one of his little 'edicts' and gave himself the power!

What you say is correct #25. Although I don't have any proof, I have this sneaky feeling that the socialist dems have pulled much of the Republican leadership aside and given them a lecture. This lecture would be along the lines of what the Soros henchman told Beck's superiors at a restaurant, when they were "negotiating" Beck's departure from Fox, "That ship has already sailed"(re: "Mr Beck is concerned about One World rule")

More than likely it isn't exactly cowardice, it's more likely complicity and outright collusion. Perhaps the democrats told the pubs that the proverbial "ship has sailed. There's no stopping it. You can either hop on board or get crushed". I can just hear it now, "this is a big f'ing deal we got here. Keep your mouth shut and get in on the spoils or be destroyed and forgotten". I see Boehner on that ship. Oh sure he shouted out a few, "h no Mr Presidents" but is by far and large ineffective at countering what this president does.

Look at what the pubs did with the extension of the debt limit last year. They had the dims cornered, no where to turn. It was a great time to lower the boom, with a big, "NO!". Then pubs snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with their gang of twelve or whatever and gave Obama EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTED, including the chance to axe up our military. Now our military is under assault, something that would have been unthinkable/untouchable under the Bushes, Reagan and maybe even Clinton.

If China goes to the UN and forecloses on us, Obama will say, "ok-that's what the UN declared, so their military will be arriving in American C-130's and C5's next week". Hat tip #10-you got it.

The only people paying attention to the 3-letter media are people older than 60. No one else pays attention, especially the 20-somethings who are fiercely independent due to the Internet. The influence of the MSM is dying off along with the greatest generation. Their doom is sure. This election is truly their last chance to influence anything in America.

I fear that when they realize they have occupied a vacant building, with the Tyrant Obama's help, they will---like the Occupoopers---instead seize the thriving building next door: the alternative media. This will be done with more assassinations, censorship and control of the internet, and general intimidation. It's what despots do.

The Founding Fathers didn't quite envision that a free media could betray an entire nation and left no definitive way to punish them. The People are going to have to come up with some way.

I said many times they get their agenda from fascist/commie editorial meetings. And my experience from soviet union confirms it. As soon as the commies let them go (in 1992 and later) they became normal reporters and journalists. At least, they reflected the state of the country's thinking!
I believe the same is hear, in America. But what can you do if you are beat into submission by your boss? Quit? No, for that you have to have cojones, and not all of them have that.
My constant point is we have to push the conservative investors to invest in conservative mainstream media. Imo, this is the only way. Let them buy newspapers and local tv stations in bulk and force the course change. We, the populus, hungry for the common sense, will support it with subscriptions and buying those tv channels!

In continuation of #58:
#33, I blame all of the above, including Bush, Rove, etc. They were taking those buckets of pi$$ and dung thrown at them by the media, even pandering to them, media, drones and leeches. They fell asleep at the helm while commies funneled the money to acorns and similar groups! Nothing was done to support conservative commonsensical Truthaganda!
Please, read Rules for Radical Conservatives by David Kahane! Seems, that he is the only one who really laid out the path!

I think all Conservatives need to back off bashing FOX NEWS !!!

IF Fox had not put on all those Stupid Liberals, which you are upset about, the Libs and Obama would demanding Fox be shut down for not having Fair and Balanced reporting.

What Fox had to do was show some sort of "Liberal Fairness" to the left, that they can point to and say we are not "Biased" !!!!

@#7: Obama is waiting until after the election to pounce on the internet. Big Sis has an Executive Order waiting. The FCC will reign down on conservative talk radio too if Barack gets a 2nd term. Don`t think this regime has given up on the Fairness Doctrine. They`re biding their time.

We are one November 6th away from total tyranny. Don`t let that happen.

Frankly, the media is only one component of the coup that is underway. Some very dark forces have taken over every important American institution (congress, the courts, academia, the higher levels of the military, the federal bureaucracy, the media, etc) and believe they are a hair's breath from the total control they desire. The average citizen is just waking up to this fact. Things are going to get very, very ugly soon; even the Honey Boo Boos might finally wake up.

Roger Simon barely breaks the betrayal ice. Pat Caddell calls them THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. But, Roger still calls them the good name "liberal" (the word MEANS FREEDOM). He copies Ann Coulter, Rush, Mark, the good guys, as well as “reigning” network enemies using "liberal" as a disguise for socialism, as fake ID. Way back to Cronkite NOT investigating deaths of JFK, RFK, MLK, it continues up to Breitbart. Our TV guys, the Hannitys, Stossells, all unionized, will NOT INVESTIGATE fellow unionized Couric Sawyer Brokaw Pelley millionaire enemy. Andrew died using the phrase, "cultural Marxism". Roger doesn’t go deep, but, it IS all about Communism. Hollywood proves it, no anti Communist films, NEVER showing decades of Stalin's Soviet Communist enslaving, murdering terrorism. Hollywood and TV media, both the good and the bad, won’t go down that road, won’t remember 100 million Stalinist Soviet driven deaths. Gulag Archipelago’s thousands of square miles of slavery until death, are eliminated from the art of film. Peter Weir daringly filmed it, in his recent brilliant, press shunned, Australian, THE WAY BACK, escaping from hell of the Gulag. Our Imposter is aiming down the road to that same Command Economy, bit by tortuous bit; only a few see it coming. Good light weight start, Roger, but it will change ONLY when you go against your fears, start calling ALL THE ENEMY by their real names: comrades, lefty, red, commie, statist, collectivist, totalitarian, authoritarian, fellow traveler, Communist sympathizer. New Media MUST CHALLENGE TV union conspiracy of evil. You’re right, Roger, THEY REMAIN IN POWER, cannot be voted out! And your book was a BEGINNING!

+1000 for all the above.
Re FOX: Why did they have to be "fair and balanced" in the first place. Why couldn't they have been the conservative alternative all along. The other MSM people call them that, so why not be what we need? Instead they want to be fair to Dems who go out of their way to hate on any conservative or Repub person on the air. They filibuster, smirk, and interrupt without any comment from the Fox person. I say screw them and become the true conservative voice on the air.

This may be partially correct. As a working journalist, let me invite you into the newsroom to see how a news story is made and disseminated.
Let’s say it’s the 1980s and the national 911 network has been unveiled. A lobbyist for a phone company sees an opportunity to sell more phones—get them to poor people who don’t have one. Approach Congress, which passes a law to tax everybody a small amount on their phone bill to fund landlines for the poor.
I get the assignment. I report what Congress decided. My editor says: “You need a human interest angle." That is, start your story with somebody who will benefit from the new law. And of course, tell both sides.
In the typical newsroom, the second part is easy. I probably have “the usual suspects” who hate government regulations on speed dial. But where to find a poor person? Ah ha! My network. In the old days, I e-mail the entire newsroom, asking: does anybody have a granny who could benefit from a free phone?
Now it doesn’t matter that within an hour I get 100 people violently opposed to the law and only one granny. In my story, I just report both sides, one viewpoint from each! Assignment completed, and you’ll never know how sausage—er, news coverage, was made.

Here’s my question. I reported, why did YOU decide not to call your Congressman with outrage at this government intrusion? Why did YOU listen to other segments of your world, such as your church or fraternal organization or favorite movie, that urged you to show “compassion” for those in the “community” less fortunate?

Look, there’s plenty of blame to go around. I don’t think journalists caused the problem, but then I don’t work in TV news. That’s another story entirely.

#11, I remember that book title from those days, but wasn't old enough to read it then. I remember it was widely discussed.

#58, I love your phrase "Truthaganda." From your posts, it is clear that you know well what we face today in this country, having lived in the Soviet Union. I never would have believed that we in this country would have to worry that our freedoms would be stolen from us. We are fortunate to have people like you to tell us what could happen, if we aren't vigilant.

All great posts. I don't think we can expect anything remotely resembling the truth from the MSM anymore. They lie, and they also lie by omission.

I have never felt more strongly about an election than I do about this one. Many people I know say that, too. Let us all pray that the same God who helped our Founders create this country helps us now.

The very fact that the media has so blatantly skewed the facts/truth to elect their candidate as Leader of the free world -- my 33-yr-old daughter (& mother of two) has lost all trust in written history.

She thinks it has always been this way. And it has now trickled down to the canon of scriptures & her faith in God. That is how damaging this Coup d'Etat has been!!

Our Fourth Estate has become more powerful than each of our other three branches of government. And it really isn't our government! I feel like I live in Soviet Russia & Pravda is indoctrinating all the below avg intelligencia, the busy working class who don't have time to search the internet, & the elderly who don't know how to use it.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
