Colbert's 'Late Show' has become propaganda for Democrats!

New York Post ^ | November 21, 2015 | Kyle Smith 

So Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as "Stephen Colbert." Viewers have noticed.
After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before.
The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late Night" into a sort of wannabe MSNBC show.
The pattern is familiar: When a Democrat is the guest, Colbert is Barbara Walters. When a Republican is on, he turns into Tim Russert.

Is The NRA The Only Civil Rights Group In America That Still Matters?

Bearing Arms ^ | 20 Nov, 2015 | Bob Owens 

The mainstream media is—once again—carrying out a nakedly partisan attack on the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, the National Rifle Association. This time the mainstream “news” organizations are attempting to assert that the NRA is a bunch of radicals that is so “gun crazy” that they even support terrorists buying guns.
The Daily News made that absurd claim earlier in the week, and the network of Dan Rather is doing so today.
Reality, of course, is something quite different.
The National Rifle Association is both a firearms training organization and a civil rights group, and opposes long-running Democrat attempts to abuse utterly arbitrary terror watch lists ripe for abuse as a method for unscrupulous politicians and bureaucrats to “other” American citizens and resident aliens, stripping them of human rights.

Netanyahu: The Enemy is Militant Islam and Here's the Only Way to Fight Them

http://www.breakingchristiannews.com ^ | 11/19/15 | Julie Stahl, Chris Mitchell 

"I am saying you're not going to change them; you will not win them over; you will not pacify them. The only way to defeat this is the way Naziism was defeated. First you defeat. Then you de-Nazify. That's the order; that's the priority." –Benjamin Netanyahu

"First of all, we stand and we do not fall. Even though, our numbers may be occasionally decimated by the barbarians, our countries are strong and we stand," Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu and the French Ambassador to Israel, Patrick Maisonnave, attended the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Jerusalem on Wednesday. Netanyahu told the ambassador that Israel stands shoulder-to-shoulder with France, "committed to defend our common civilization."
"It's difficult for civilized men and women to recognize that our cities, our airways, sometimes our waterways are prowled by beasts that devour the innocent in their way. And the forces of civilization, when they realize the severity of this problem, have no option but to unite very clearly and defeat these beasts," he said.
"The beasts increasingly have a name—it is radical Islam. That is what is doing the killing, the murder, the rape, the burning, the beheadings. We must stand together and fight together militant Islam. The people of Israel grieve with you, the people of Israel stand with you. Now and always," he added.
Netanyahu and Maisonnave joined conference participants in standing for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Paris terror attacks.
After the Paris attacks, Israel lowered its flags to half mast, and now on the streets of Jerusalem, the city is flying the French tri-color.
"We are not awakening to a new reality but mainly struggling like many other nations to adapt to a new phenomenon characterized by foreign fighters, who are converging to Iraq and Syria today," Maisonnave told participants.
"Fighting Daish [ISIS, jihad] is our priority," he said.
"Terrorism is terrorism not only when it affects us on such a horrendous scale, but also when it affects Israel," the ambassador added.

"Terrorism is the deliberate and systematic targeting of the innocent, of civilians, of non-combatants for a political or ideological ends. This is what defines terrorism. It's always evil," he said.
Netanyahu said the international community often tries to make excuses for Palestinians when they attack Israel. But Netanyahu said it's all the same.
"The enemy is militant Islam. Its method so far is terrorism. It is in the business of acquired states. One already exists. It's called the Islamic State of Iran. The second is being established. It's called the Islamic State of ISIS, Daish. And with states, Islamic militants can have a base from which to launch much greater and more lethal terrorism," he said.
The prime minister said there's only one way to fight militant Islam:
"What is the system to fight them? One thing... fight them! Identify, condemn, fight," Netanyahu said.
"I am saying you're not going to change them; you will not win them over; you will not pacify them. The only way to defeat this is the way Naziism was defeated. First you defeat. Then you de-Nazify. That's the order; that's the priority."

Republican: Syrian refugees coming to U.S. for a ‘paid vacation’!

The Hill ^ | 11/21/2015 | Bradford Richardson 

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) says refugees fleeing war-torn Syria are trying to come to the U.S. for a “paid vacation” in the form of generous welfare programs.
“I’m one of these folks that think we need to stop paying these folks to come here, and we’re paying them about $15,000 a year in free health care, free food, free shelter, free clothing, free transportation,” Brooks said on the Dale Jackson Show on Friday, as first reported by the liberal media outlet ThinkProgress.

You know, just go down the litany of wealth-transfer programs that these people are entitled to, and that answers very quickly why so many of them want to come to the United States of America, we’re paying them to come here,” Brooks continued. “Paid vacation!”
He clarified that he was talking about “not just refugees, but all the illegal aliens, all the things that [President] Barack Obama is doing that is wrong and perhaps in violation of law with respect to illegal aliens, or irresponsible with respect to taking in refugees from countries that are infested with Muslim terrorist organizations.”
In the aftermath of terrorist attacks in Paris last week, the congressman said Islam is an inherently violent faith.

Obama Bans Saying “Merry Christmas” At VA Center

http://www.thefederalistpapers.org/us/obama-bans-saying-merry-christmas-at-va-center ^ | Robert Gehl 

In an e-mail to employees, Department of Veterans Affairs supervisors at the Salem, Virginia, center has banned employees from any religious expression in pubic areas.
"Employees are permitted to engage in private religious expression in their personal work areas that are not regularly open to the public," the message to employees reads, noting that Christmas music was banned as well. "If an employee's supervisor has previously granted them permission to listen to music in their personal work area, they should be reminded that music travels and should be secular (non-religious) and appropriate to the work environment."
 salem-va-letter
At first, they tried to ban the display of Christmas Trees, but after an angry meeting between VA supervisors and about 150 employees, they backed down and said Christmas trees would be allowed. Here’s how WSLS reports it:
A letter from the Salem VA Medical Center to all employees stating Christmas trees will not be allowed in public areas this holiday season ignites a debate. But, after a heated meeting Friday afternoon — management is going todec k the halls and light the tree after all.
Christmas trees have always been a part of Christmas at the Salem VA Medical Center.
For veteran Vicki Jackson, the tree symbolizes overcoming a hard time in her life.
"It brought me over a big hump, because Christmas is hard for me, it's real hard for something that happened years ago," said Jackson. "And, to see that tree gone it's not Christmas."
It's not just Jackson; it's a message that provoked Salem VAMC employees, veterans and others in the community.
And, after a closed meeting between management and up to 150 staff members; now, a tree will stand tall this holiday season at the Salem VAMC.
"It was very tense in there with the director and amongst the employees," said Jackson. "I wasn't supposed to be there, but I went anyhow."
In a statement the Salem VAMC public affairs officer said, "it was determined that Christmas trees could be displayed in public areas so long as they were accompanied by the respective symbols of the two other faiths that celebrate holidays during this holiday season – namely symbols commemorating Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
The decision comes after a letter from the Salem VAMC to employees which read, "trees have been deemed to promote the Christian religion and will not be permitted in any public areas this year."
"I don’t look at the tree as the birth of Christ, I don’t," said Jackson. "I look at is as a tree being decorated with ornaments."
Of course, as Breitbart points out, Christmas is not only an official federal holiday, but Christmas Trees grace the White House front lawn and the Capitol Lawn.
In 1989, the Supreme Court ruled that Christmas Trees were not a violation of the "endorsement test."
"The Christmas tree, unlike the menorah, is not itself a religious symbol. Although Christmas trees once carried religious connotations, today they typify the secular celebration of Christmas," wrote Justice Harry Blackmun, upholding the government's displaying a 40-foot Christmas tree on public land outside a courthouse.
"Numerous Americans place Christmas trees in their homes without subscribing to Christian religious beliefs, and when the city's tree stands along in front of the City-County building, it is not considered an endorsement of Christian faith," he added.
But when was the last time the Obama Administration gave a damn what the courts said anyway?

Now the truth emerges: how the US fuelled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq

Guardian ^ | June 3 2015 | Seumas Milne 

The war on terror, that campaign without end launched 14 years ago by George Bush, is tying itself up in ever more grotesque contortions. On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting.
The prosecution abandoned the case, apparently to avoid embarrassing the intelligence services. The defence argued that going ahead with the trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself providing “extensive support” to the armed Syrian opposition.
Terrorism has come about in assimilationist France and also in multicultural Britain. Why is that?
That didn’t only include the “non-lethal assistance” boasted of by the government (including body armour and military vehicles), but training, logistical support and the secret supply of “arms on a massive scale”. Reports were cited that MI6 had cooperated with the CIA on a “rat line” of arms transfers from Libyan stockpiles to the Syrian rebels in 2012 after the fall of the Gaddafi regime.

Clinton: GOP should 'just get out of the way'

Washington Examiner ^ | 11/21/15 | Curt Mills 

Hillary Clinton, who listed "Republicans" as her enemy in the first Democratic debate, wasted no time laying into her longtime foil at Saturday's North Charleston, S.C., "Jamboree."

Referring to Republicans' repeated attempts to repeal Obamacare in Congress, Clinton said, "Honestly, I don't know why they do this. They're driven by political ideology, not by taking care of people."

"I want to build on, and make improvements in the Affordable Care Act and I will stand against any Republican effort to repeal it," Clinton said, highlighting a recent campaign tact of wholeheartedly embracing and highlighting President Obama's signature, but most controversial, legislative achievement.
Clinton also at times used language that seemingly could have been lifted from the stump speeches of her chief Democratic competitor, Bernie Sanders, representing a cementing of her move leftward in order to stave off Sanders' surging popularity and emergence as her leading rival in the primary.

"You know the deck is rigged," Clinton said of the tax system. "Well, we've got to reshuffle that deck, and make sure we are raising incomes for the middle class," Clinton said, adding, but "not raising taxes for the middle class," in a dig at Sanders who has proposed some middle class tax hikes to pay for his program.

"I will not do that," Clinton said. "From my perspective, we have to create more good-paying jobs, and there's a bunch of things we could do, if the Republicans would just get out of the way."
