Free markets, sound money, property rights and contract rights, down with the bureaucracy, a sensible foreign policy where we don’t have this horrendous foreign welfare to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars and wars that go on for ten years – that isn’t mainstream, that craziness. – Dr. Ron Paul
Though FoxNews commentators waited approximately 15 minutes to ask Dr. Ron Paul a question during this evening’s debate, he has once again proved that America is backing libertarian ideas as the solution for pulling America out of the mess of the last 100 years.
I felt everybody needed a three minute, fifty second break from the world being completely turned inside out – from the managed and driven instability in the Middle East, the hurricanes forming over land in the Midwest, the flooding of millions of acres of farmland (which WILL lead to more food shortages), the manipulated price of gas, and of course, the government threatening to shut down all flights in and out of Texas, and the looming bankruptcy of our country (just to name a few and NOT including Fukushima -sheesh). (more…)
Judge Napolitano’s opening statements include how the progessives have been controlling the message through the corporate owned media, how the Obama administration came out swinging against Rush Limbaugh and Fox News, and that he believes this “government hates and fears free speech and wants to shut it down”.
Glenn’s clips start with how Obama mimics Woodrow Wilson’s policies about too much information in the public marketplace, and trends into Wilson’s Espionage and Sedition Acts. Glenn also shows how he has been accused of sedition, and how Cass Sunstein thinks that conspiracy theorists are seditious. That would be millions of us, now wouldn’t it?
It appears the temperature in hell has just gone down a degree or two since Bahana Obama has deigned to come down the mountain and give an interview on Fox News. When video is available, I will post it here.
Special Report’s Bret Baier will interview President Obama on Wednesday in an exclusive conversation scheduled just days ahead of the House of Representatives’ critical vote on landmark health care legislation.
The interview will run uninterrupted in its entirety on Wednesday’s Special Report at 6 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel.
Baier will discuss with the president the policy, politics and head counting behind efforts to pass Obama’s signature domestic priority. The two will also talk about other key issues facing the Obama administration and the country.
Viewers can submit their suggestions for a question for President Obama by clicking here.
“This is a real opportunity to try to get some firm answers from President Obama on lingering questions about specifics in the health care legislation, the process Democrats are using to try to pass it, and the politics of its passage,” Baier said. “And it’s an opportunity to try to pin the president down on a few other hot topics. We welcome the opportunity and think it will be a benefit to our viewers.”
Special Report will broadcast from the White House. After the interview, the Fox News All-Star panel of Steve Hayes, A.B. Stoddard, Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer will offer expert analysis.
Following the show, check FoxNews.com for transcripts and video of Baier’s one-on-one interview with the president.
UPDATE: One has to give Bret a hand for going after this fraud and not letting up. As for Bahana Obama, he is spinning this into setting the terms of the dialogue for the debate. I am paraphrasing, ‘if you vote against the bill, you are voting FOR the status quo’. Last time I checked, Americans WANTED healthcare reform – JUST NOT OBAMA’S!
News Corp chief Rupert Murdoch announced on Tuesday that the Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi is to become the headquarters of his global media empire in the Middle East.
Addressing some 400 delegates at the opening of the Abu Dhabi Media Summit, Murdoch said his corporation had started out as a small Australian firm to become a US-based international company that employs 64,000 people.
“I have every confidence that Arab companies can do the same and more. I also believe that Abu Dhabi can lead the way.”
Murdoch said News Corp would headquarter its Middle Eastern global online advertising operations in Abu Dhabi, and move a number of satellite television channels to the capital of the United Arab Emirates from Hong Kong.
“We will (also) establish a production office here for one of our documentary film-making companies,” he said.
“When we look to the future, News Corporation is betting on the creative potential of the more than 335 million people who make up the Arab world,” he added.
Should Fox News register with the State Department as a foreign agent — an agent of Saudi Arabia?
First off, is that a farfetched question? Not when a leading member of the ruling family of the Sharia-totalitarian “kingdom” of Saudi Arabia, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, has made himself the second-largest shareholder of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., Fox News’ parent company.
Just as Steven Emerson believes that American universities using Saudi mega-millions (many from Alwaleed) to set up Islamic studies departments should register as Saudi agents, I believe an American news channel part-owned and part-influenced by the Saudi prince should, too.
Alwaleed’s long march through U.S. institutions is a mainly post-9/11 progression greased by his purchase of about a 5.5 percent stake in News Corp. in 2005, and his purchases, I mean, gifts, of $20 million apiece to Georgetown and Harvard Universities, also in 2005.
There have been other eye-catching displays of Alwaleed’s largesse — $500,000 in 2002 to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Hamas- and Muslim-Brotherhood-linked entity, and a whopping $27 million, also in 2002, to the families of Palestinian “martyrs,” aka suicide bombers. These, along with Alwaleed’s self-described “very close relationship” with Murdoch son and apparent heir-apparent James, a left-wing global-warmist with virulently anti-Israel views, should only deepen Americans’ concerns about Fox’s ties to “the prince.” Recently, Murdoch and Alwaleed have discussed expanding their business relationship through the Murdoch purchase of a substantial stake in Rotana, Alwaleed’s huge Arab media company.
Before entering his Murdoch association, Alwaleed gave a remarkably candid interview in 2002 about what Arab News described as his belief that “Arabs should focus more on penetrating U.S. public opinion as a means to influencing decision-making” rather than boycotting U.S. products, an idea of the moment.
The Arab News reported: “Arab countries can influence U.S. decision-making ‘if they unite through economic interests, not political,’ (Alwaleed) stressed. ‘We have to be logical and understand that the U.S. administration is subject to U.S. public opinion. We (Arabs) are not so active in this sphere (public opinion). And to bring the decision-maker on your side, you not only have to be active inside the U.S. Congress or the administration but also inside U.S. society.'” Continued…
One would think that by now NOTHING would stun us. NOTHING!
Barack Obama is receiving the Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award and the Barack Obama Award for the Audacity of Arrogance for the following statements coming from the Pretender-In-Chief who gave us stimulus 2.0 and a trillion dollar takeover of the healthcare industry, (not to mention Cap And Trade). I see someone has been doing some internal polling and is trying to keep the independents from jumping off the capsizing ship with his Fox News interview and about-face on the deficits. I hate to say it, but there is more to this story than meets the eye with this fraud.
BEIJING, Nov 18 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama gave his sternest warning yet about the need to contain rising U.S. deficits, saying on Wednesday that if government debt were to pile up too much, it could lead to a double-dip recession.
With the U.S. unemployment rate at 10.2 percent, Obama told Fox News his administration faces a delicate balance of trying to boost the economy and spur job creation while putting the economy on a path toward long-term deficit reduction.
His administration was considering ways to accelerate economic growth, with tax measures among the options to give companies incentives to hire, Obama said in the interview with Fox conducted in Beijing during his nine-day trip to Asia.
“It is important though to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession,” he said.
Fox News, which released a transcript of the interview, showed that comment by Obama on Wednesday morning and said the full discussion would be broadcast later in the day.
What’s that saying; “don’t mess with a man who buys ink by the barrel”? I still believe the White House war on Fox, and now the Cheney/Obama dustup over Afghanistan are both diversions to keep us from looking at what is really going on with the FCC and healthcare reform, (and God knows what else), but something has to be said for the courage of the Washington bureau chiefs that told the WH to stick it when Bambi’s juvenile crew tried to keep Fox from interviews with the “pay czar”.
Barry, better luck next time with your Saul Alinsky tactic of polarization of your enemy, and just for the record, the rest of us are not as compliant as the Congress.
Readers are wondering who the bureau chiefs are. I will updated this list as I find the info. I am putting this info up with the disclaimer that I am not totally certain the bureau chiefs listed by Newswatch.org are current as they still had Tim Russert listed instead of Mark Whitaker. On the other hand, Newswatch’s page has every phone number and email you could possible want to find out who you want to send thank you notes to.
