In October 1976, just prior to Jimmy Carter’s election as president, Newsweek had christened 1976 the “Year of the Evangelical.” Carter’s candidacy had introduced many Americans to the term evangelical, and his articulation of the themes of progressive evangelicalism—
care for the poor, concern for human rights, and an aversion to military conflict—brought many evangelicals into the arena of politics, some of them for the first time.

For regular viewers of TV talking heads, Eleanor Clift is no stranger. She’s been making the rounds for years, currently working for Newsweek / Daily Beast, and is a regular feature on The McLaughlin Group. It was on the latter program where today’s feature video unfolded, with the venerable Ms. Clift once again tangling with Rich Lowry.

Predictions of the demise of Rush Limbaugh and conservative talk radio are a dime a dozen. That liberal wish has been a repeated incantation. But it’s more amusing when the demise talk comes from …. “Newsweek.”
(GyG: ReBlog…) ~ Update: The First Time I Heard of Barack…By: Tom Fife…. | AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL
The cover of Newsweek proclaims: “We Are All Socialists Now.” In the Feb. 16, 2009, issue, Newsweek editors Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas write: “Whether we want to admit it or not the America of 2009 is moving toward a modern European state.” They blame President George W. Bush for laying the groundwork with his $700 billion bailout – which opened the door to Obama’s trillions more.
Bloomberg reported yesterday, “The stimulus package the U.S. Congress is completing would raise the government’s commitment to solving the financial crisis to $9.7 trillion … enough to send a $1,430 check to every man, woman and child alive in the world. It’s 13 times what the U.S. has spent so far on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Congressional Budget Office data, and is almost enough to pay off every home mortgage loan in the U.S., calculated at $10.5 trillion by the Federal Reserve.”
Last week I wrote about the Socialist spending bill filled with partisan political paybacks not so cleverly disguised as “stimulus.” And now those in the Senate who represent you are negotiating not the concept of spending our way out of debt, but rather, how much and who – besides ACORN, leading the nation in voter fraud – will be the beneficiary of billions of your hard-earned tax dollars.
I called this bill Socialist. Newsweek says we’re now Socialists. Turns out we were both wrong. Sam Webb, the leader of the Communist Party USA is doing Communist cartwheels because he believes that it’s his Communist agenda that’s being embraced. Speaking in Ohio for People’s Weekly World Communist newspaper, Webb said: “We now have not simply a friend, but a people’s advocate in the White House.”
Although it is now digital, Newsweek celebrated President Obama’s upcoming inauguration with a “cover” that calls the event “the second coming,” an apparent reference to the return of Jesus Christ, The Blaze reported Friday.
A post at Twitchy called the cover “creepy,” while The Blaze described it as “controversial” and “questionable.”
(Gunny G: What “The Folks” Are Saying Bout “Going Galt”! …) ~ Evan Thomas: ‘White Men Dropping Out of Workforce’ -’Going Hunting, Fishing’
“Unexplored story of the year: white men dropping out – dropping out of the workforce, dropping out of elections, just plain dropping out, getting social security, not doing anything, going hunting, fishing, just not in the game” (video follows with transcript and commentary, file photo):
I followed my father’s path and became an academic neurosurgeon, teaching at Harvard Medical School and other universities.
I understand what happens to the brain when people are near death, and I had always believed there were good scientific explanations for the heavenly out-of-body journeys described by those who narrowly escaped death.
The brain is an astonishingly sophisticated but extremely delicate mechanism. Reduce the amount of oxygen it receives by the smallest amount and it will react. It was no big surprise that people who had undergone severe trauma would return from their experiences with strange stories. But that didn’t mean they had journeyed anywhere real.
