During Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Bashir, host Martin Bashir got rather vicious while discussing what frequent Fox News guest Charles Krauthammer had to say about President Barack Obama‘s electoral victory. After playing an election night soundbite from the conservative columnist, Bashir jokingly apologized to any young viewers who may have been frightened by Krauthammer’s face. Bashir shared the soundbite with GQ’s Ana Marie Cox and the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, mockingly asking: “Do Republicans understand what has happened? Let’s listen to the great Charles Krauthammer.” After the bite played, Bashir joked, “Now I need to
Comments: In another time pigs like him would have been shunned by society. Now they get their own TV shows. Dr. K has more brains in his little finger than Bashir and the other low class jerks on his show could ever hope to have.
I think Dr. Krauthammer is a very distunguished looking man accentuated by the pain he has suffered thus causing him to be bound to a wheelchair. I don't mean to sound squishy but come on, is this the way one judges someone these days? Yes, I guess considering our culture has become so course and cruel.
I believe he is wheel chair bound as a result of an accident that left him paralyzed. If you notice on TV, he can not move much and his hands appear to be atrophied. He is a psychiatrist and a brilliant man.
I have learned some things from this election. I am heartbroken, of course, but I now realize I am heartbroken for the country. Our family has decided to be the best people we can and try to do the best for those in our circle of influence. We will prepare as best we can for what is ahead. We will watch the unkindness unfold with sadness. But we will no longer participate in sarcasm or unkindness. We want to raise our bar. I loved what Dennis Miller said last night. He will pay the taxes asked of him because he is an honest man. We are watching a really nasty football game in a way, but we know who will eventually win. Let's help keep the America we know by not stooping to others' level. Off my soapbox. Thanks.
Martin Bashir is another big fat liberal hypocrite. So much for setting partisanship aside. No, I think to win the next fight, we need to neuter the Left's collaborators in the MSM.We need to expose them until they are shown up as the partisan hacks they are and kill off their careers by exposing their lies like what happened with Dan Rathers.

Martin Bashir should say 'there for the Grace of God go I' and apologize. I won't hold my breath. My face will turn blue waiting.
Many of us have disagreed with Dr. K.'s POVs, but never to make fun of him. BTW he was in medical school when he was paralyzed in a diving accident. He made it through internship, residency and practice. You have to give him a mountain of credit for not only doing that, but also being an internationally recognized writer and personality. I don't know how he keeps it up and especially as he grows older. Funny though how advocates for the disabled--oh yes, 'differently abled', rarely hold him up as a shining example.
Yet a lot of people know this guy. They work with him, see him on the street or in stores, etc. There isn't ONE person in his life to confront him about the cheap shot, about his demented view of politics/life? It's like a bacteria swimming freely in a culture of filth. Many people will think this is over the top, but there ought to be some kind of responsibility to truth or the search for it for people who have the privilege of disseminating news. If this rude pig can't do that, he could at least attempt basic civility. When your position is indefensible take a cheap shot right 'Martin?'
It only takes a couple of minutes listening to this beady-eyed little Pakistani, with the clipped British accent, spewing his vile thoughts on MSNBC,to come to a conclusion. This Hindi-Urdu speaking, green card carrying hoodlum is no friend of American Society!
We need to have better ground troops in the future. We can't fight them on the airwaves and over the Internet and on our Twitter accounts. We have to go out among the unbelievers and convert them. We may, dare I say, have to go back to the old school ways of going door to door, face to face. We have to approach the undecideds and the uneducated one on one as brothers in arms, fellow countrymen. And, we have to do it in the most civil, charitable, clear way we possibly can. Human contact must prevail again, get off our duffs and get the ball back.
There is a synonym for "beady eyed little Pakistani". It's WOG, worthy oriental gentleman. Bashir is a joke and should be glad he's not wearing a rag on his head and eating goat in the Tribal Lands. Charles Krauthammer is not always right and he is not always perfect but I'll take his intellect and reason to Bashir's any day. Gosh, that must make me some kind of racist, right?
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
