The Liberal Media’s Palin Obsession
By Jeff Crouere
Since she burst on the national scene in 2008, the national media has enjoyed poking fun and mischaracterizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family. The main reason for their obsession is that Palin is an unabashed conservative who is articulate and popular with millions of Americans.
Michelle Nunn Doesn’t Understand Basic Economics
By Alan Joel
Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to demagogue them for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012.

Why the Welfare State Isn’t Well and It Isn’t Fair
By Dr. Robert R. Owens
Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries Socialism had a fairly precise definition, a somewhat clear program, and a generally agreed-upon goal. The definition of Socialism was some variant of Karl Marx’s well known statement, “From each according to the ability to each according to their need.” Socialism’s program was the nationalization of all means of production, exchange, and distribution. Socialism’s goal was the use of all three in a comprehensive plan to bring about some chimera of social justice.

The Ebola “Monster” is Peaking; the Real Ones Are Not
By Michael Fumento
In a sense, everything you need to know about the veracity of those nightmarish Ebola epidemic projections was summarized in the October 14 press conference held by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Ebola head, Bruce Aylward. He said:
- currently there were about a thousand new cases a week;
- it’s “too early to say” whether “the epidemic [is] slowing down” [emphasis added] or there’s “exponential growth,” and;
- ”we anticipate that the number of cases occurring per week by [December] is going to be somewhere between five and 10 thousand.”
Whoa, Nelly! Even as he says it’s possible the growth in new cases is declining, he predicts a five to 10-fold explosion within weeks.
Releasing Criminally Convicted Illegals onto Our Streets
By Arnold Ahlert
In a revelation that will surprise almost no one at this point, the Obama administration has been caught in another lie. Records obtained by USA Today contradict the administration’s assertions the 2,228 people freed from immigration jails in 2013 only included those with minor criminal records. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released a number of illegal aliens facing serious criminal charges that include “kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide,” the paper reports.

New York news anchor warns: If you don’t want Ebola, don’t eat mucus or feces
By Robert Laurie --Media - Media Bias
I think we’ve all been there. You’re walking around New York, or perhaps riding the subway, and you’re feeling a bit peckish. Unfortunately you’re a good five minutes from the nearest “Original” Ray’s Pizza, so you start looking for more ...immediate options. Since the big apple is a veritable wonderland of weird stuff lying around on the sidewalks and floors there’s a good chance that you can spot some tasty looking mucus or feces.
UK woman: I wish I’d aborted my 47-year-old son with Down Syndrome
By Dan Calabrese --World News
Sixty-nine-year-old Gillian Relf says not to judge her until you’ve walked in her shoes. And to be sure, that would be one rough walk. The son who was born 47 years ago with Down Syndrome has complicated the life of her and her family in ways she clearly never anticipated. It interrupted not only an anticipated career but also the simple family life she and her husband had envisioned.
Another Ebola case, and more liberal lectures against ‘panic’
By Dan Calabrese --Media - Media Bias
I don’t know about you, but I have yet to witness a single person panicking about Ebola. I don’t even hear many people talking about it. I read about it in the media, sure, and we’ve had our share of things to say about the federal government’s handling of the problem. But ordinary people freaking out in fear and panic? Not one. Not a single time.

Why Should We Fear the Recognition of a Palestinian State?
By INSS --World News
More than twelve years after Israel’s rejection of the Arab Peace Initiative, and despite the fact that acceptance of this initiative in principle could pave the way to peace with the Arab world, the Israeli leadership still believes in the possibility of advancing this aim without recognizing a Palestinian state or taking concrete measures toward its establishment. However, it is doubtful that the “moderate” pragmatic Sunni Arab camp will agree to negotiate agreements with Israel without the onset of serious and purposeful negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, despite the hardships facing this camp along with its interest in (secret) cooperation with Israel in facing the threat posed by radical Islam.
Antichrist – There’s an App for That: Or There Soon Will Be
By Rev. Michael Bresciani --Christianity - Religion
Every leader and decision maker in the world believes they are acting independently of all Divine purpose. Yet, what we are told in the Bible is that no one and no nation is completely independent, they are under the control of Divinity and those which collectively choose an evil path are directed by (Satan) the god of this world, sometimes referred to as the ruler of the cosmos.

The Fundamental Transformation of Journalism
By Cliff Kincaid --Media - Media Bias
The story carries the great title of “How Edward Snowden Changed Journalism.” But the article doesn’t live up to its billing.

It’s time to beat the Jew haters
By Caroline Glick --American Politics
The decision by the most prestigious opera house in America to produce an opera that mainstreams Jew-hatred and anti-Jewish terrorism is a great victory for elitist anti-Semitism. In the world of elite anti-Semitism, Jews are told that truth is but a narrative. Jewish history and rights have no more merit—indeed less merit—than the lies of Jew-haters. And if Jews dare to object to the propagation of lies against them, they open themselves to the easy accusation that they seek to stifle free speech.
