Obama’s Newest Assault on Free Speech: The So-Called ‘Free Flow of Information Act’

Obama’s newest attack on free political speech protects neither journalists nor does it assure any “free flow of information.” In addition to the IRS targeting conservative groups, individuals and their families–and now proposing rules to silence them during elections–and the new FCC plan to police the press by placing so-called “researchers” in newsrooms across the […]

At long last we get a proper ruling on the First Amendment status of bloggers, one affording them the same legal status as “real” journalists; this from the Ninth Circuit Court in California, no less. The Ninth Circuit is often derided as the “Ninth Circus” because its rulings are almost invariably left-wing and anti-American. But […]

Chinese Bloggers Get Wasteful Gov’t Official Fired

Citizen journalists in China have succeeded in getting a wasteful government official fired by reporting on a lavish party he threw paid for by government funds.

CPAC 2013

Once again I am attending the Conservative Political Action Conference here in Washington D.C.–well, not D.C. exactly but outside the city in National Harbor, Maryland, a 20 minute drive from downtown.

Hey, Gas Prices Ticking Up — Unexpectedly?

The miserable jobs numbers in June and recent GDP report this month aren’t the only bad news for the U.S. and for the Obama Campaign.  Gas prices are creeping back up. Again.   Prices are lower in most states than they were a year ago, but given that the average state is hovering around the […]

Wawagate: MSNBC/Andrea Mitchell Smear Romney With Edited Video

Once again the left-wing media edits a video to misrepresent what a Republican is saying in order to make him look the idiot.

Americans with Disabilities Act Necessity: Conservative, White, Male Bloggers NEED a Federal Subsidy

OK, you people, I am sick and tied of this. The Americans with Disabilities Act is NOT being fairly applied. That’s right. You read that headline correctly. Conservative, white, male bloggers NEED a hand from Washington. In fact, I’d say we have a right to it. We are being discriminated against even from those on […]

Stupid Internet Meme of the Week: Santorum’s ‘Rough’ Handshake With Ron Paul Outrage

Buzzfeed was the first to indulge it’s inner gossip — well, maybe its outer gossip since that is all that site is; gossip.

Conservatives: Occupy Wall Street Shows How We Can’t Get Our Message Out Over Old Media Din

The gauzy puffery that the Old Media slathers upon the Occupy Wall Street movement has helped keep most Americans in the dark about how nasty, how violent, how outrageous, and even how incredibly lacking in integrity this movement is. On the conservative blogs the truth is well known, of course, but the fact that few […]

Ezra Klein Left Musik

I don’t spend much time at Outside The Beltway any more. It’s become like the old line about Playboy Magazine — “I hardly ever look at it, and only for the articles.” The comments section has become a leftist sewer that would fit right in over at what used to be LGF. But the articles […]
