Why we’re sick of Washington…

Victor Davis Hanson offers three  current examples  of the hypocrisy and arrogance and cronyism which causes We the People to loathe the government and the political establishment which colludes with it against us.

Lying media…

leave a comment »

Alicia Colon  lets loose  on our lying,  stinking media and what passes for journalism today.   As she demonstrates with a brief recap of some of its most epic fails,  the media has earned much more than our mere disapproval.

The Constitution gave us a free press for our information and protection.   It is shameful that a huge percentage of it not only fails,  but refuses to do the job for which it was granted such power.   It now falls to private groups to do that job.

Coincidentally,  the Washington Post also has a column by Paul Farhi  on why journalists  should practice  what they preach.

There is a third  piece,  by Victor Davis Hanson,  on what he  terms junk journalism.  He finds it is often just activism, careerism, and narcissism to advance the Democrat agenda,  and I can not disagree.

Freedom Academy…

leave a comment »

PJ Media has launched a new,  free online forum  that is dedicated to spreading the principles of freedom and liberty to America’s future generations,  led by the classical historian and Hoover Institution fellow,  Victor Davis Hanson.   I am always thrilled when a new resource appears for freedom lovers.

Full disclosure?

leave a comment »

Victor Davis Hanson thinks the  media won’t go full bore  on Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion because it might bring up questions about Obama’s largely unknown past.   I disagree.  Big media is perfectly capable of banging on about how many wives Romney’s great-grandfather had,  while continuing to ignore how many women Obama’s father was married to simultaneously.   Liberals and progressives will see no contradiction in this.  Most others will.

After all,  few in the press have complained that His Oneness  hasn’t held a news conference  in quite a while,  and as Peter Kirsanow explains,  the  media will not  report anything to the detriment of their far-left hero.

Channeling Teddy…

leave a comment »

The Washington Post’s has at least one columnist no longer in love with His Oneness,  and Mr. Kessler was unimpressed by   the accuracy of Obama’s self-glorifying  speech this week  channeling Teddy Roosevelt in Osawatomie,  Kansas.

Victor Davis Hanson  thinks even less  of the speech,  which set up nicely for Peter Kirsanow’s questions for the President.   Johnathan Tobin  doesn’t think Obama  can play Teddy.   Ramesh Ponnuru has an interesting,   slightly different take on it.   David Harsanyi   points out  what an anti-capitalist His Oneness is.

No recession…

leave a comment »

MSNBC sticks to its  unflagging support  of His Oneness by reporting no jobs BUT also that there’s no recession.   Dan Keating says the White House assurance that we aren’t headed back into recession may be right since we  never really  left it.   Victor Davis Hanson quickly  lists the  policies which have failed,  then explains why.

And just when you thought Obama might shut up for a while after his boffo, blockbuster,  so important as to demand the venue of a joint session of Congress speech on the economy,  comes the depressing news that  more speeches   and proposals on the subject  are planned.  Leaks of such an extended roll out tell me that His Oneness has no workable plan except to claim that he does and the mean old Republicans won’t let him blow another $3 trillion to get re-elected.

Eric Allie has fashioned  a new logo  for team Obama.

10 point primer…

Victor Davis Hanson has put together a slightly tongue-in-cheek primer on the  political realities of the day viewed through a White House lens.
