Robert F. Kennedy Jr said of Fox News Friday, “It’s divided our country in a way that we haven’t been divided probably since the Civil War.”
This occurred during an online video interview with the Huffington Post (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: There’s two things happening. One is the influence of big money in politics, and the other is the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News. 95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you, so a whole section of our country that that’s what they’re hearing. They wake up in the morning, when they go to bed at night.

“Nothing regarding the Internet do we want subject to U.N. review and regulation,” Kramer told FoxNews.com.
Monday marked the first day of an 11-day conference. Kramer, who leads the U.S. delegation at the conference, said that the first day had “gone well” and so far delegates are “still in the early stage, talking about what should be reviewed when.” No specific regulations have been debated yet.
Tribal America… (“… Kirsten Powers argued that Republicans needed to deal with the reality that America is becoming what she called a “brown country.” “)
To an immigrant such as myself (not the undocumented kind, but documented up to the hilt, alas), one of the most striking features of election-night analysis was the lightly worn racial obsession.
Her fellow Democrat Bob Beckelobserved on several occasions that if the share of the “white vote” was held down below 73 percent Romney would lose. In the end, it was 72 percent and he did. Beckel’s assertion — that if you knew the ethnic composition of the electorate you also knew the result — turned out to be correct.
This is what less enlightened societies call tribalism: For example, in the 1980 election leading to Zimbabwe’s independence, Joshua Nkomo’s ZAPU-PF got the votes of the Ndebele people while Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF secured those of the Shona — and, as there were more Shona than Ndebele, Mugabe won. That same year America held an election, and Ronald Reagan won a landslide victory.
Just watched FOX & Friends and Col Allen West was on live and stated that he will no longer fight for the FL D18 seat. (paraphrasing) He stated that even though they found problems with the way the vote count was handled he said it is not about him but is about what is best for the people of FL D18 so he conceds the seat to Pat Murphy.

FOX NEWSGUILTY OF THE BIASED AND ERRONEOUS REPORTING IT CONDEMNS
On Friday, November 09, 2012, FoxNews published online “Obama holds firm to tax hikes as he invites Hill leaders to talks on ‘fiscal cliff’” In which Barack Obama, was in full puffery and arrogant narcissism three days after somehow managing to completely fool the polls by fixing a victory in the face of oft-predicted landslide proportions of defeat.
The arrogance was highly evident as Obama claimed his election was a vindication of his fiscal policy. Then he added this bit of self-puffery, “I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced,”. “This was a central question during the election … and on Tuesday night, we found out that a majority of Americans agree with my approach.”
The second part of that last sentence “we found out that a majority of Americans agree with my approach” is praise undeserved but seemingly routine for this self-loving egoist. There was NO majority of Americans agreeing with his approach.

I have had strong differences with most of the presidents in my life time, however, I have never questioned a president’s loyalty to country or to the men and women who serve our country.
Yet the bizarre handling by this president and his surrogates of the attacks on our diplomatic mission in Libya and the events leading up to the attacks, compels me to ask if Barack Obama and his senior advisor committed treason against the men in Benghazi. The President and his administration have been less than forthcoming about what happened in Benghazi, Libya. What we do know is only due to information leaking out and made public by Fox News. No other media outlet is covering this story.
Following a pair of denials by the CIA and the National Security Council to a Fox News story published Friday, the Pentagon has come under scrutiny for its response to the assault on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.
However, in a statement to The Atlantic Wire, a senior defense official says the Pentagon never rejected requests for military intervention in Benghazi. Not only that, the official said no such requests were ever made.
You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing.
The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him, “Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away.
To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”

President Obama ran into a buzzsaw yesterday while doing a round-robin of satellite interviews with local news outlets in crucial swing states — and by “buzzsaw,” I mean that rare form of species known as a “real reporter.” Kyle Clark of Colorado‘s KUSA actually asked Obama about the latest revelations out of Libya. According to Fox News, the three requests for help made during the seven-hour attack on our consulate in Benghazi were met with orders from U.S. officials to “stand down.” Wisely, Obama dodged this question entirely.
Where do I even begin dear Comrades? The case before us is the murder of US Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, Libya and it’s a story that just will not go away, thankfully. FOX News is reporting today that prior to the murder Steven and his party put out several requests for help while they were under attack and every one of those requests was denied.
WTF? Additionally, the US military and CIA assets in the area were told to stand down more than once! Obama says he wasn’t personally aware of the requests. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the US didn’t have enough info. WTF? Not enough info? There were TWO drones in the area whose live video could have been immediately viewed by the WH, Pentagon, and State Dept. How much more info did these losers need to grant the repeated requests for help? And further at least one father of one of the slain Navy Seals says US officials “MURDERED” his son and he wants JUSTICE! Amen to that!!
Mr. President, you’ve got Mail!… (“…set to air on the National Geographic Channel two days before the election, has been eclipsed by his bigger role in a real time, real life drama.”)
President Barack Obama’s upcoming starring role in SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden, set to air on the National Geographic Channel two days before the election, has been eclipsed by his bigger role in a real time, real life drama.
“The film which originally included a scene showing Gov. Mitt Romney “appearing to oppose the raid”, a complete fabrication of history” (New York Times, Oct. 23, 2012) is after all just the fluff of made-for-television movies.
The real life drama, the one where emails prove he knew the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens were the result of a premeditated terrorist attack within hours of its happening, should be called, Mr. President, You’ve Got Mail.
On his Wednesday radio program, conservative talker Mark Levin suggested he didn’t care much for the presidential debate analysis of either The Washington Post’s George Will or the Fox News Channel’s Charles Krauthammer.
“Why? How can this be said to be “immeasurably the best?” Levin asked. “I don’t think more lies have been told in 90 minutes in history of debates. Why? The constant interrupting by the moderator?
You know what it is? It’s all about the superficial. They wanted to see a fight. They got a fight. Well, good for them. I like to see fights, too.”
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department:
The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it.
In addition, Hunt said the security guards inside the mission didn’t have bullets:……
Trotta: Seal Team Raid Week Before Election? (“…wondering why the Coprolite Press is ignoring the disappearance of Hillary since the slaughter of four Americans in the Libyan Consulate…”)
Also Trump really enjoyed appearing with Bill O’Reilly last week, saying he received “an amazing response from the O’Reilly show, it’s probably the biggest show he’s ever done in the sense of three fairly full nights of me, and he was very happy, as he will tell you his ratings were phenonmenal.”
Gretchen Carlson couldn’t help but let out a chuckle at Trump’s unabashed promotion. Finally Trump didn’t back down from earlier statements on Iraq, suggesting American soldiers will have died in vain if we leave Iraq and let Iran go and take the oil fields, instead of us as the victors getting the spoils.
Watch the clip from Fox News below:
Appearing on MSNBC Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson claimed that, in his opinion, President Barack Obama was overly deferential to Mitt Romneyduring the debate because he was concerned he may come off as an “angry black man.”
Gunny G: “What do we do? The president’s failures are legion and have made all of us the worse for them. Gov. Romney’s failures are obvious and will give us four more years of Obama. Who says the system is not fixed?”
Can anyone get excited about Romney? Aside from a capitalistic attitude about the economy – as opposed to the president’s love of central economic planning – does anyone know what views he will embrace on Inauguration Day?
Do you know anyone just aching to vote for him, the way conservatives were for Ronald Reagan in 1980 and progressives were for Obama in 2008? I do not know of such a person.
President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”
President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”
President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
2016 – The Documentary – To be Shown on Fox News 9 PM tonight… (“It may be that Fox has been holding this information back due to the sensitivity of it and out of courtesy. But, Obama has…”)

Seventy-nine percent say everyone should pay something, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. That includes 85 percent of Republicans, 83 percent of independents and 71 percent of Democrats.

A stunning moment just happened on Fox News…
However it appeared to end in tragedy, as the suspect ran out of his car and shot himself in the head on the middle of a field.
FOX NEWS Two-dozen conservative activists and media personalities on Tuesday urged members of their respective groups to switch off the “biased news media,” claiming in an open letterthat establishment media are “out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda.
”Though these groups frequently complain about a left-leaning media bias, they claimed in the letter that the political slant this cycle is unprecedented.“In the quarter century since the Media Research Center was established to document liberal media bias, there has never been a more brazen and complete attempt by the liberal so-called ‘news’ media to decide the outcome of an election,” wrote Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, and other conservative leaders.

Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” Buchanan, author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” pointed to Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo as the beginning of the administration’s “utterly naïve” foreign policy.
“What’s happening is the Obama administration’s Middle East policy is collapsing right in front of us,” Buchanan said. “He had his famous Cairo speech, and then he got behind the Arab Spring and dumped over some dictators and autocrats and other people, some of whom were friendly to us, others who were not. Thereby, they’ve unleashed these new forces, and not all of them are benign. Some of them are noxious.”
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano is the popular senior judicial analyst for the Fox News Channel and the former host of “FreedomWatch” on Fox Business Network. The youngest judge with life tenure in the history of New Jersey‘s Superior Court, he presided over more than 150 jury trials between 1987 and 1995. For 11 years, the judge taught constitutional-law classes at Seton Hall
A bestselling author who has written a half-dozen books on government power, his next work, “Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Your Consitutional Freedoms,” will be published by Thomas Nelson in October. You can find out more about Judge Napolitano’s work at judgenap.com.
Decker: I look at the freedoms we are giving up so rapidly, and I can’t believe Americans stand for it. Just one example is the hundreds of millions of dollars that are extracted from motorists every year from the traffic-camera scam, and no one marches on city hall and says stop. That’s a single instance of how people now exist to serve the state instead of the other way around. We’re all in trouble when citizens no longer resist the government inclination to suppress our rights. What hope is there for what you call “a nation of sheep”?

Here are a few examples:
The Real DiLorenzo: A ‘Southern Partisan’ Interview (“Our Republic Cannot Be Restored Until GOP Destroyed!”)
When Random House released Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo‘s critique of Abraham Lincoln, The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War, in 2002, it caused quite a stir. Dr. DiLorenzo eloquently and effectively disputed the accepted Lincoln myth, and the liberal academics who’ve made a living off of Lincoln’s unassailability didn’t like it one bit.
Born in Pennsylvania — southern Pennsylvania, as he is quick to point out — Dr. DiLorenzo earned a Ph.D. in economics from Virginia Tech and is now professor of economics at Loyola College in Maryland.
In addition to The Real Lincoln, Dr. DiLorenzo is the author of ten books, including Official Lies: How Washington Misleads Us; The Food and Drink Police: America’s Nannies, Busybodies, and Petty Tyrants; and Underground Government: The Off-Budget Public Sector (co-authored with James T. Bennett).
Professor DiLorenzo is widely published in the popular press as well, including the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Washington Post, Washington Times, New York Times, Readers Digest, and many other newspapers and magazines. He has appeared on the Fox News Channel, CNN, CSPAN, and the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show, and writes regularly for such websites as LewRockwell.com. Recently, he was interviewed by the History Channel for an upcoming documentary about Lincoln.

I was riding around in the car, listening to XM Radio and had FOX News with Megan Kelly‘s show on. She was interviewing some guy and said (paraphrase) she’s hearing from people in the know who are discussing this behind closed doors that Obama will be re-elected for sure and gee, how would four more years of Obama affect the crapola you and I are talking about? What are we to think about this statement by Ms. Kelly? Complete rubbish?
No sooner had Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate become known than the world of punditry was abuzz with talk of “Ryanmania.” Since mania is by definition an excessive or unreasonable enthusiasm, the label may be regarded as an understatement.
For while the seven-term Republican congressman from Wisconsin and chairman of the House Budget Committee is not yet a household name across America, he does generate excitement within the “conservative movement,” an excitement and enthusiasm that suggests the talking heads at Fox News and the dot.com warriors at The Weekly Standard
have no more sense of conservative, constitutional government than the cheering chanting crowd of Republican partisans who greeted the vice presidential hopeful in Norfolk, Virginia, Saturday morning.
legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants and just plain government spying.
This is according to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who, when he asked the government to tell him what it was doing to violate our privacy, was given a classified briefing. The senator – one of just a few in the U.S. Senate who believes that the Constitution means what it says – was required by federal law to agree not to reveal what spies and bureaucrats told him during the briefing.
Why did resident 0bama’s grandmother say he was born in a village in Kenya?
Because he was?
That explains why such effort has gone into concealing 0bama’s original birth certificate.
“I’ve said it a lot, that if Obama opened up his records, maybe Mitt should give his returns,” Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “That would be a great trade. I guarantee it would be a really wonderful trade.”
On further examination, it’s clear that Ms. Kelly wasn’t representing such views as being her own, but was summarizing the views of others – including a Virginia judge – who in the past have cited the Bible in their attempts to justify slavery, the subjugation of women and the prohibition of interracial marriage.

Sparks fly in this heated debate between Michelle Malkin and Tamara Holder, as the “Blame Righty”
syndrome of the progressive left is defined and exposed for exactly what it is.
The greatest distinguishing factor between countries in which there is some freedom and those where authoritarian governments manage personal behavior is the Rule of Law. The idea that the very laws that the government is charged with enforcing could restrain the government itself is uniquely Western and was accepted with near unanimity at the time of the creation of the American Republic. Without that concept underlying the exercise of governmental power, there is little hope for freedom.

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”
Those were Abe Lincoln’s words in his first inaugural in 1861, as America was running headlong into civil war. Now we’re a house divided again and another civil war is coming, with the 2012 election as its Gettysburg.
On one side are those who create wealth, America’s private sector–the very ones targeted by President Obama’s tax hikes announced Monday.
On the other are the public employee unions; left-leaning intelligentsia who see the growth of government as index of progress; and the millions of Americans now dependent on government through a growing network of government transfer payments, from Medicaid and Social Security to college loans and corporate bailouts and handouts (think GM and Solyndra).
