liberals are the enemy of Freedom, Not Conservatives!

Conventional wisdom might suggest that Rush Limbaugh’s radio show and the Fox News Channel are probably on the same side of the media wars. But after Thursday night’s debate, Limbaugh is having doubts.

On his Friday radio show, Limbaugh took issue with the moderators of the Republican presidential debate in Ames, Iowa, hosted by Fox News and the Washington Examiner. According to Limbaugh, back-and-forth attacks among the candidates were part of an orchestrated effort that showed the hosts’ desire to win approval from their counterparts in the mainstream media.

“[I] missed the first 40 minutes live,” Limbaugh explained. “And that didn’t help either by the way. And when I started watching I said, ‘My gosh — does nobody on this panel remember that we’re running against Obama? What is this business of these guys trying to tear each other up?

“Then I figured out that’s what Fox wants. Fox wants these people to tear each other up. I said, ‘Why does Fox want these people to tear each other up?’ They want approval from the mainstream media because that’s what the mainstream media would do — is tear these people up, or try to get them to.”

London Olympic Ambassador Arrested For Rioting

A teenage girl accused of trashing a police car during the ongoing London riots has been arrested — after her parents allegedly spotted her doing it on TV and called the police.

Adrienne Ives told the Sun she has no regrets about turning her daughter, Chelsea, over to the police. She said she and her husband were watching television coverage of the riots Sunday when they recognized their daughter attacking the car.

“We were watching the riots. It was sickening. Then we saw her. To say we were shocked…” Adrienne said. “I love her. But look at what she’s done. These riots have cost people their jobs and even lives. We are going through hell.”

Chelsea, described as smart and athletic and among a group of Londoners picked to serve as “ambassadors” for the 2012 Olympics, cried when her parents confronted her, her father Roger said.

“There were a lot of tears. She did not try to stop us phoning the police, she knew there was no point,” he said. “The policeman said we had been brave. It was devastating when she was led away. I don’t want my daughter to prison. But we would do the same thing again.”

Prosecutors say she threw a rock through a store before yelling to her friend, “This is the best day ever!” Then, along with a group of a dozen rioters, she is alleged to have started attacking a squad car, throwing a brick and hitting it with a plastic road barrier.

Court of Appeals finds ObamaCare individual mandate unconstitutional

A second federal circuit court of appeals has spoken in the ObamaCare case, the one brought by 26 states. A split three judge panel for the Atlanta-based 11th Citcuit has found the individual mandate unconstitutional, but leaves the rest of the law intact, though crippled and financially not viable.

Jennifer Harberkorn of Politico:

The 2-1 ruling marks the first time a judge appointed by a Democrat has voted to strike down the mandate. Judge Frank Hull, who was nominated by former President Bill Clinton, joined Chief Judge Joel Dubina, who was appointed by George H.W. Bush, to strike down the mandate.

Judge Stanley Marcus, in a dissenting opinion, said the mandate is constitutional. He was also appointed by Clinton. (snip)

This ruling all but guarantees that the Supreme Court will review the case, as the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the mandate in a similar suit six weeks ago.

Did media cover up Sen. Durbin’s confrontation with reporter?

This week U.S. Senator Dick Durbin held a press conference with members of the mainstream media to talk about the downgrade crisis. But the Senator’s scripted storyline veered off-course when a conservative reporter – me – showed up to ask an embarrassing question. Namely, “Senator, you’ve blamed the tea party…but do you bear any responsibility for this downgrade crisis?”

What, you didn’t hear about this incident in the media? For those of you that need more proof that journalism is dead, read on.

Monday was another beautiful day for a mainstream media cover-up in Chicago. But it would not have been complete without a picnic-basket full of hypocrisy from our very own U.S. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois.

You may remember Dick.

He’s the Senator that hysterically compared the treatment of the Gitmo detainees to Nazis, Soviet gulags, and Pol Pot. While calling for an end to “hateful” rhetoric, he’s the one who wrongfully pointed his crooked finger at the Tea Party Movement and Gov. Sarah Palin, blaming them for the Tucson massacre and the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Recently, he’s the one that, hypocritically, accused the Tea Party Republicans of “political extortion” in the debt ceiling debate.

While the markets were tanking – Durbin took some time out to have a press conference and dish to his friends in the Chicago media about the S&P downgrade of our nation’s sterling credit rating.
