with Rachel Maddow

... is worth 1000 words


That MSNBC routinely, almost compulsively, mischaracterizes what conservatives say is nothing new. It's what makes the network so adorable. But in a recent trend, anchor Rachel Maddow has been upping the ante, altering quotes we just heard her play on tape.

On Monday night, for example, Rachel ran a news clip from President Reagan's 1983 Martin Luther King Day signing ceremony:

"Chris Wallace, NBC Reporter (by miraculous coincidence, currently a Fox News anchor): 'There was an air of celebration in the Rose Garden and an underlying tension. White House officials wrestled for days how to usher in a holiday the president opposed. They finally decided to embrace it. ... Maybe that's what today was about, that blacks have the power to make politicians do things.'"

End tape, cut to Rachel, taking notes, muttering with disgust: "The blacks now have the power ..."

Except Wallace didn't say "the blacks." Refer to the tape. By adding the simple article "the," Rachel turned Chris Wallace from a garden-variety 1980s news reporter into Archie Bunker. It takes a special kind of zealotry to play a tape of someone and then immediately lie about what viewers just heard him say.

Rachel's rewrite of Wallace (again, a Fox News host) was astonishingly similar to her misquote of Republican Senate candidate -- now senator -- Joni Ernst just before the November elections. Maddow inserted the word "the" into Ernst's statement, entirely changing her meaning.  [coulter continued]

The most defined and most spectacular incident regarding the film industry politics, however, involved Hollywood’s New-Deal-era infiltration by the Communist Party USA, a subsequent House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) probe, and the  industry-wide blacklist of unrepentant Stalinists that followed.

Conveying that story to modern readers is Human Events Editor-at Large Allan H. Ryskind’s Hollywood Traitors: Blacklisted Screenwriters – Agents of Stalin, Allies of Hitler (Regnery History, $29.99), a powerful indictment of such Communist Party loyalists as the "Hollywood Ten," individuals that popular history (and such films as Woody Allen's "The Front," Jim Carrey's "The Majestic," and the documentary "Trumbo") now paint as heroes.


Of 1943’s "Mission to Moscow," Ryskind notes, “No more pro-Soviet film has ever been produced or promoted by a major Hollywood studio—or possibly even by a Soviet studio.”

Ryskind, son of former Hollywood screenwriter Morrie Ryskind, might be on to something.

The film features not only a defense of the indefensible Moscow Show Trials of the late 1930s, but also such deathless dialog as this from FDR’s Soviet Ambassador Joseph E. Davies (portrayed by Walter Huston): "I am amazed at the boldness and imagination behind such a vast industrial development. I can think of no other period in history where so much has been done in so short a time."

To Stalin, Davies/Huston even gushes, "I’ve been deeply impressed by what I’ve seen, your
industrial plants, the development of your natural resources, and the work being done to improve living conditions everywhere in your country. I believe history will record you as a great builder for the benefit of mankind."

The going was truly good for Hollywood's Communist Party screenwriters. [FULL]

The early days (90's) of Free Republic, Amazon, and C-SPAN Books made it easy, for the first time, to learn about these books, and purchase them with a keystroke.  Books I otherwise would have never heard about.  My first serious look into  Hollywood's role in advancing communism in the U.S.  came in 1998 when I read America's Thirty Years War: Who Is Winning? by Balint Vazsonyi.  Opened a Pandora's box, bang bang, bang!
Looking back today at Balint Vazsonyi's question about who's winning, I must answer; THEM. Which is why I despise what Hollywood have done to our culture. Gives me an idea for another book though.  I'll call it, "Quit crying like little girls and jump, or instead of a vat of acid it'll be heads first down a Mississippi prison shit hole. 

Sean Penn and  Nick Nolte go first.  For their dad's complicity, and their whining.

Ronald Reagan Rhetoric and Nancy Pelosi Results
Well done, House Republicans. You’ve managed to screw it all up in only a few short weeks.

ERLC’s Russell Moore ‘Disgusted’ by GOP’s Decision to Drop Pro-Life Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 22, 2015—Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, responded to House Republicans’ decision to drop the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” a major pro-life bill that would ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy.

“I am disgusted by this act of moral cowardice. If the House Republicans cannot pass something as basic as restricting the abortion of five-month, pain-capable unborn children, what can they get done?

“The Republicans in Congress should come and explain this atrocity to the hundreds of thousands of people gathering here in the nation’s capital to march for life. The congressional Republicans seem to think that pro-lifers will be satisfied with Ronald Reagan rhetoric and Nancy Pelosi results. They are quite wrong.”

House Republicans are now scheduled to vote on a bill Thursday that would prohibit federal funding for abortions. This scheduled vote coincides with the annual March for Life event, held in Washington, D.C., on or around the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing abortion in the case Roe v. Wade.

The Southern Baptist Convention is America’s largest Protestant denomination with more than 15.8 million members in over 46,000 churches nationwide. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is the SBC’s ethics, religious liberty and public policy agency with offices in Nashville, Tenn., and Washington, D.C.

Aside: Erik Erikson observes in Young Lives Matter:

Today, in Washington, DC, hundreds of thousands of individuals – more than the combined total of all the police protests – will gather peacefully to begin their annual pilgrimage through DC to the steps of the Supreme Court to protest the greatest injustice America has ever faced – the lives of 57 million unborn children have been extinguished in America since the Supreme Court declared in 1973 a heretofore undiscovered right, nowhere written in the Constitution nor imagined when any part of it was adopted, for some Americans to legally kill other Americans, provided that the victims were sufficiently young ...

Common Enemies

The punishment for riding on the same bike as a boy

Muslim groups in America, like the unindicted co-conspirator and terrorist front group Council on American-Islamic Relations, have targeted Fox News numerous times in the past, and have called for the jobs, and heads, of various Fox News personalities who have spoken the unfiltered truth about radical Islam.

The truth is, the organizers of the event know that Islam isn’t a religion of peace and that radical Islamic jihadists pose a rapidly increasing threat to America, which is something they’d rather the majority of Americans not know.

Fox News doesn’t necessarily stand alone in this instance either, as some other reporters for other media outlets received similar treatment from the event organizers, and all reporters were kicked out of the conference after the 20-minute opening ceremony. [Full]

Fox News may not stand entirely alone in this instance, but by and large the network is viewed as a mortal enemy by both American Islamics like CAIR,and the Democratic Party. FWIW

Rodge, Had you seen this, you would've posted it.
By far the best series on WWI. 
The amount of history told is comprehensive.
The narration is excellent.
They slightly colorize to film which gives it a modern viewing experience and to represent the true colors (uniform, dress colors, etc.) of the day.
They add sound effects to make it appear it was filmed with sound.
This war was truly ugly.
What's interesting is they thought it would be a short lived war, maybe a few months, a season or so.
There hadn't been a war in Europe for over 50 years so no one knew what to expect...

Horry clap!  I'm being plethora'd to death with grade A cinema series.  First,  I'm reminded that Justified 5 is out.  At the same time I ran across the complete  "Game of Thrones" series on HBO and thought,"I hear this silliness talked about a lot, let's see what it is," and am instantly hooked.  Plus we have Foyle.  Life is so demanding for we who are so engaged in living it. Sigh.

Have I found myself in some perverse Soylent Green scenario? Yikes.

It's the man code

Philsophically, metaphysically, and even morally speaking, can a man who fornicates with his wife's identical twin sister be accused of adultery?  I think not. And certainly does not deserve this.

Woman Showcased By Obama At SOTU Address Is NOT Who He Said She Was

Last night during President Obama’s State of the Union Address, he had a woman sit with his wife that he claimed to be a shining example of our economic recovery, the only problem is that he didn’t tell everyone the whole story.

According to the FreeBeacon, Rebekah Erler was presented by the White House as a woman Obama discovered after she wrote him a letter explaining her economic hardships. Her story, Obama says, is proof positive that Americans are coming forward about their stories of how his policies are helping them.

She’s a former Democrat operative who worked for a Washington Senator, Democrat Patty Murray.
Sounds all butterflies and rainbows, right? Wrong.

See, there’s a slight issue with Mrs. Erler’s story. It’s not that she may not have pulled out of a tough time, and it’s not that she didn’t tell Obama that his policies are working, it’s that her credibility is completely lost when we find out she’s a former Democrat operative who worked for a Washington Senator, Democrat Patty Murray.

Worse yet, this wasn’t the first time that Obama used the former Democrat campaign staffer during one of his speeches for a political prop. You mad yet?

In June, Obama spent a “day in the life” of Erler in order to have “an opportunity to communicate directly with the people he’s working for every day.” Something that he was heavily criticized for by the Minnesota Republican Party who believed he is “so out of touch with reality that he thinks a former Democrat campaign staffer speaks for every Minnesotan,” and apparently, now every American.

(Continue if you must ...)

"Worse yet, this wasn’t the first time that Obama used the former Democrat campaign staffer during one of his speeches for a political prop. You mad yet?"


This crap began with Bill Clinton's use of  Craig Livingstone as agent provocateur and Butt Man. My educated guess is that in the 15 Clinton/Obama SOTU addresses you'll find 15 strawman citations.  At least.
