MSNBC Demotes Al Sharpton As The Public Continues Losing Faith In The Corporate-Run Mainstream Media

Following a decision in July to cancel three daytime programs, MSNBC President Phil Griffin has announced yet another far-left host will see their daytime program eliminated (or in this case, relegated to a new, less prominent, time slot). Al Sharpton, who has hosted PoliticsNation on MSNBC since August 2011, will see his previously five night per-week show relegated to Sunday mornings at 8 AM. Despite the apparent demotion, Sharpton is taking his show’s removal from the weekly daytime line-up well. “First, I can reach a wider audience of people who don’t get home by 6 at night. Second, I can now get the A-list guests and… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Rips Walker As “part Of The Problem”

Kentucky Senator and Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul has slammed Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in response to recent remarks by the Governor regarding Washington politicians. Paul replied in a interview by the Associated Press, alleging that “part of problem we have is career politicians like Scott Walker.” “Has he ever had a job outside of politics? He was running for office when he was in college. I’m not going to be lectured by a career politician, that’s for sure,” Paul continued. This marks the first time in the presidential campaign that Senator Paul has attacked Governor Walker, and Walker is… Keep Reading

The Creeping Specter Of War With Russia: a War The Pentagon Is Unsure It Can Win

As the ominous specter of war with Russia appears all but certain, a series of classified exercises conducted over the summer by the Pentagon has left many at the Pentagon unsure the United States could defeat Russia in a protracted war. “Could we probably beat the Russians today [in a sustained battle]? Sure, but it would take everything we had,” one defense official told The Daily Beast. “What we are saying is that we are not as ready as we want to be.” After nearly 15 years of continuous war in Afghanistan and Iraq, American ground troops are unprepared to sustain the troop… Keep Reading

Three Really Dumb Abortion Arguments You Should Stop Making

As the series of shocking videos released by the Center for Medical Progress continues to land body blows on Planned Parenthood, fewer and fewer abortion advocates can be found to defend them.  They are even slowly disappearing from the typically safe comments sections of traditionally left-leaning sources like Slate and my state’s resident MSM outlet, the Des Moines Register.  Articles from pro-choice folks condemning the abortion giant seem to have knocked the legs out from some of the most vulnerable arguments lately, like the thinly-veiled falsehood that abortions only comprise 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services, or the notion that being… Keep Reading

Rand Paul’s Giuliani Moment

In the first Republican presidential debate on Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) got into a heated exchange with Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) over the NSA’s sweeping collection of all Americans’ phone records. While Sen. Paul could have sounded a bit more eloquent, and he certainly should not have talked over Christie, it was still a good moment for him, in fact, it was a great moment for him. It was reminiscent of his father former Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-TX) famous exchange with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. During that debate, Ron Paul explained the concept of “blowback” (the… Keep Reading

Target To Drop “Offensive” Gender Labels From Kids Sections In Latest Case Of Political Correctness Gone Awry

In yet another case of political correctness gone awry, the retailer Target has announced its intention to phase out gender labels from several kids sections after “outrage” from customers. According to Bloomberg, the apparent outrage boiled over when an Ohio mother posted a photo on Twitter in June showing a sign for “Girl’s Building Sets”, similar to the type sold by the company Goldieblox, directly adjacent to a sign for regular “building sets”. “It stood out to me as a good example of the way our culture tends to view boys and men as the default, normal option and girls and… Keep Reading

FEC Renews Internet Power Grab; Claims Power To Regulate Campaign And Political Speech Online

After a prior attempt by the Democratic members of the FEC to regulate election-related videos online, effectively granting the FEC power to silence Libertarian and Conservative-leaning websites like Drudge Report, failed after strong public outcry, the new head of the FEC has recently signaled her intent to push for greater regulations on political speech online. Ann Ravel, the current head of the FEC, spokeduring a conference hosted by the Brennan Center for Justice, the New York City Campaign Finance Board, and the Committee for Economic Development. When asked about regulating political activity on the internet, Ravel asserted it was under the… Keep Reading
