Analyze This: On ‘The Factor,’ Psychologizing Passes As Analysis | BarelyABlog… “Bill O’Reilly, star of Fox New, has this Pavlovian response to any suggested comparison between Russian and American military bellicosity: he foams at the mouth. Why is it absolutely verboten, on The Factor, to compare Russia’s “excursion” into Ukraine to America’s naturally illicit and illegal occupations of Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, on and on?”

In doing so, he also agreed to Article Two, Clause Five of the Constitution which states that the President must “faithfully execute the laws of the land”.
The word “faithfully” in that statement is clearly defined by Webster’s Dictionary as “strict or thorough performance of one’s duty.” Faithfully does not mean that the President can arbitrarily execute the laws of the land. Nor, does it say he can ignore those parts of the Constitution he doesn’t like.
‘Crackers,’ a ‘teenage mammy’ — the sorry truth about race and Zimmerman trial (OK, then fizzles)
Posted on Friday, July 12, 2013 8:05:51 AM by 2ndDivisionVet
George Zimmerman faces life in jail as a jury considers second-degree murder charges against him for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But thanks to the media he is already sentenced to life in the American public’s mind as a racist.
NBC edited a tape of Zimmerman’s call to police as he was following Martin to make him appear to be focused on Martin’s race.
The New York Times has referred to him in unique racial terms as a “white Hispanic.” The terminology was necessary to have the story fit into a well-worn news narrative throughout American history from the Scottsboro Boys to Emmett Till to Rodney King – the black victim of white racism. Hispanic people can be as racist as black or white people in a country with a deep history of racism. But, apparently for the Times, Zimmerman’s whiteness was important. It fit their good versus evil tale of a white racist killing an innocent black man…..
Juan Williams: Where’s the outrage over Obama’s drone policy?

Imagine if President George W. Bush or senior members of his administration asserted that they had the power to assassinate any person, including American citizens on American soil, because they merely suspected them of being involved in a terrorist plot.
Now, imagine that they went a step further and claimed that this broad new power was not subject to any oversight by Congress or the judiciary or international law.
A lot of left-wingers would be apoplectic. And they would be right.
This weekend, I will be a speaker at the giant “PAUL Festival” taking place in Tampa, Florida. Some of the most notable liberty-minded
constitutionalists in the country will also be speaking. It is going to be quite a gathering. See the Paul Festival website here.
With the PAUL Festival fresh on my mind, I am reminded of a column written by Juan Williams at TheHill.com. Before referencing Mr. Williams’ fine column, it should be no surprise to readers of this column of my undying respect and support for the man who has inspired the PAUL Festival (and so much more): Congressman Ron Paul of Texas.
In 2008, I actively campaigned for Dr. Paul’s Presidential campaign in South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, and Iowa. I have written numerous columns in support of the man I call The Greatest Congressman In US History. I have spoken on the same platform with Congressman Paul on more than one occasion and consider him a true American statesman.
MALKIN UNLOADS ON LIBERAL ‘HANNITY’ GUEST OVER FAST AND FURIOUS:
‘THE BLOOD IS ON YOUR PEOPLE’S HANDS!’
June 21, 2012 by Jonathon M. Seidl
But if that was stoking the fire, what she did Wednesday night on “Hannity” to liberal Tamara Holder was torching the place with napalm.
Malkin was a guest along with Holder on a segment talking about the day’s Fast and Furious news
that the entire operation was really started under the Bush administration
(the “blame Bush” mantra is really popular these days). That’s where things first got tense, after Holder scolded Hannity who tried to make a point and told him,
“For Ron Paul to run as an independent,” Fox News Channel‘s Juan Williams wrote back on November 4, “could be the biggest, most consequential third party candidacy in American history. Yes, one that is even bigger than Ross Perot’s candidacy was in the 90s.”
Persistent talk about a Ron Paul third party candidacy by some may be an attempt to sabotage Dr. Paul’s GOP candidacy and enable establishment candidates who support banking bailouts and irresponsible foreign military intervention to win the nomination. Paul has stated he won’t run an independent race for the presidency.
Did Juan Williams Link Christians to The Oklahoma City Bombing?

In his recent assessment of his year since he was unceremoniously — and illicitly in many folks’ estimation — fired by NPR, Juan Williams indulged one of those fallacious assumptions that just screams left-wing spin. It is the sort of straw man argument that casts aspersions on others — this time against Christians — while pretending to be the logical adult in the room, not to mention while pretending not to be casting aspersions. It is a logical sleight of hand that many liberals use.
Juan Williams: Ron Paul driving Republicans’ White House campaign
The Hill ^ | May 9, 2011 | Juan Williams
Posted on Monday, May 09, 2011 9:10:17 PM by 2ndDivisionVet
Here’s a news bulletin — it is becoming increasingly clear that we are living in a time when Republican politics are being shaped by a 75-year-old, 12-term Texas congressman with a son in the Senate. And incredibly, it is no longer out of the realm of possibility that this outcast of the GOP establishment may win the party’s presidential nomination.
If you have not been paying attention, it is time to look around and realize that we are living in the political age of Rep. Ron Paul.
A CNN/Opinion Research poll released late last week shows Paul faring the best against President Obama of any potential Republican candidate. He trails the president by only 7 points, 52-45 percent, in a head-to-head matchup. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee trails by 8 points, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney down 11 points to Obama.
In February, Paul won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Action Conference for the second straight year.
Last Thursday, the day of the first GOP debate, one of Paul’s fabulously-labeled “money bombs” exploded with the announcement of $1 million in contributions for the Paul campaign.
The Tea Party, which drove the GOP to claim a majority of the House in the mid-term elections, grew largely out of the ashes of his 2008 presidential campaign, which emphasized limited government and a return to constitutional principles. Since then, the Tea Party has bullied the Republican leadership in the House to force budget cuts at the risk of shutting down the government and collectively become the most persistent critic of the Obama presidency on financial regulatory reform and health care.
The roots of all of this are in the libertarian mind of Rep. Paul.
At last week’s debate, put on by my other employer, Fox News Channel, I was struck by the libertarian flair the iconoclast injected into the evening. First, his presence along with another libertarian Republican — former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson — allowed for Republicans nationwide to witness a debate in which strong arguments for immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan came from the right. But that was just the start. There are instances where Paul’s views make the Republican establishment want to scream.
he most interesting part of the interview came at the end with this exchange, especially since it seemed to come out of nowhere:Helmand: “I happen to agree with Schiller that your comments were bigoted. I think that if I were to say that I clutch my purse every time I walk by a black man that might resonate with a lot of Americans.
It might be the truth but it’s a bigoted statement. I certainly wouldn’t have fired you but I do think there was some truth in that video that we don’t get to talk about because we are afraid to have actual discourse in this country.”Williams: “I can’t believe that you just said that. You think that simply saying what you think is evidence of bigotry that all of a sudden it’s as if you were walking by a black man that would mean if you were bigoted if you were somewhat nervous.
Let me just tell you, with the amount of black on black crime in America, I get nervous and I’m a black man. So, I mean, wait a second…
“Helmand: “There we go again, Juan. I would find that to be racial profiling that’s a bigoted comment.”
NEWSCASTERS OR POMPOUS PURVERYORS?
by Neil Turner
CNN broadcasts in over 212 countries around the world through U.S. and international divisionsFeb. 23, 2011 —
How can you two Pompous Purveyors of Parse call yourselves Newscasters or Investigative Reporters, when you can’t even read a cue card or a screen image that says:CERTIFICATION not CERTIFICATE of LIVE BIRTH;andNATURAL BORN CITIZEN not CITIZEN, or NATURALIZED CITIZEN, or BORN IN AMERICA?
The Factor Bill O’Reilly: “Here’s the deal. The issue doesn’t matter! Sane, clear thinking people understand that the President is not a Muslim. He wasn’t born in Indonesia, or whatever.”Juan Williams: Why all the State legislation to require eligibility be proven to be on the ballot?.
“Because they’re PINHEADS!
It’s just a Grandstand play by people who are looking for attention.”We The People: “Here’s the real deal, Mr. O.” The issue does matter to 180 million Americans who question his faith and his condition at birth. Sane, clear thinking people understand that:
1. If he is a Christian who converted from his documented muslim faith in his 20’s, there would be a fatwah on his ‘apostate’ head; a death sentence called for by all ‘good’ muslims worldwide. the silence is deafening here.
2. If he is a Christian, not still a muslim, he wouldn’t be reciting the muslim prayer at sunset, or saying that he will stand with them the muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction, or funding terrorist organizations like the Hamas ‘refugees’ from Palestine, or bowing down to muslim kings and potentates.
3. You don’t legitimize illegitimacy by:a. simply showing a proven-to-be-forged CERTIFICATION of LIVE BIRTH and calling it a CERTIFICATE;b. interchanging the words ‘natural born’ with ‘naturalized’ or ‘native born’ or ‘citizen’ or ‘American’;c. saying that the 14th Amendment defines or even mentions ‘natural born’.
It doesn’t;d. calling people ‘PINHEADS’, just because YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE
TRUTH! thank you, Jack Nicholson;
National Public Radio’s firing of the talented and amiable Juan Williams for comments he made on Fox News about Muslims is outrageous, even disgusting. But it is not an aberration. It is emblematic of the “dictatorship of virtue” imposed on Americans by the country’s elites — many of them, like those at NPR, publicly funded but unaccountable to the American public. Judging from the response to Williams’s firing and the immediate extension of his multimillion dollar contract with Fox News, it looks like he will thrive.
But arrayed against the unchecked power of elite multiculturalism, now ensconced not only in Ivy League universities but in the White House as well, it is not at all clear that the country will.Americans of all political stripes appeared mystified by NPR’s firing of the highly regarded Williams after he gave Bill O’Reilly something resembling an honest if not completely innocuous rendering of his feelings about flying in airplanes nowadays: “But when I get on the plane, I’ve got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”The public’s bewilderment is easy to explain.
The takeover of our most prized institutions by the type of authoritarian multiculturalism exhibited by NPR took place quietly, over time, and out of the public eye. Multiculturalism began as the academic adjunct to the integrationist civil rights movement of the postwar decades, an attempt to correct the improper omission of underrepresented groups in American history. But its practitioners also reserved for democracy a place of special grandeur, the natural and logical culmination of humanity’s centuries-long struggle over the best way to govern.

“The next night, O’Reilly read a complaint from one of his viewers, Heidi Haverlock of Cleveland, who said: “I thought the joke about whether sharia law would allow the beheading of the Washington Post guy was completely inappropriate.
“O’Reilly replied: “Well, let me break this to you gently, Heidi. If Dana Milbank did in Iran what he does in Washington, he’d be hummus.”O’Reilly’s on-air fantasizing about violent ends for me was precipitated by a column I wrote describing Fox News’s election-night coverage as a victory party for the Republicans.
This didn’t strike me as a terribly controversial point, but it evidently offended O’Reilly. “He said there were no Democrats except for Schoen on,” O’Reilly complained. “It was an outright lie.”That would have been an outright lie, except that I said no such thing. I wrote:
“To be fair and balanced, Fox brought in a nominal Democrat, pollster Doug Schoen. ‘This is a complete repudiation of the Democratic Party,’ he proclaimed.”Though I didn’t claim Schoen was the sole Democrat, in hindsight I should have quoted other putative liberals who appeared on Fox that night – and sounded much like Schoen. There was Bob Beckel, proclaiming: “I feel like the blind guy whose guide dog died” and “I give all the credit to Republicans on this.”
Or Juan Williams on President Obama: “I just don’t think he gets it.”O’Reilly has every right to quarrel with my opinion or question my accuracy. But why resort to intimidation and violent imagery?Let’s drop the thuggish tactics – before more people get hurt.

I’ve noticed a distinct change of attitude of Juan Williams AND Mara Liasson on the Fox Panel with Bret Baier.Juan’s scowling and head shaking are more obvious and often than before he was given a job by the Fox Network. Mara Liasson, at least, doesn’t ‘mug for the camera’ by comments by Steve Hayes and Charles Krauthammer but she has become more ‘edgy’ and more bias in her comments.
Both are wearing the ‘deer in headlights’ look in their eyes as if they are trapped in a stuck elevator with Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Pain.In my opinion, Juan has ‘buyer’s remorse‘ on his, way too generous, contract with Fox. He, undoubtably, has lost most of his friends and their respect in the liberal community and now is desperate for his old job at NPR. In my opinion, he and Mara are both pandering to George Soros and NPR, Mara wants to keep the gig and Juan wants back in.
If it wasn’t for Stephen Hayes and Charles Krauthammer strongly rebuking Juan’s and Mara’s liberal talking points, the show would almost be unwatchable.
Now let me get this straight: George Soros, Media Matters, and the White House, in some unclear capacity, have unveiled their master plan to destroy the right: isolate and nullify Fox News by getting people fired from NPR.NPR pink-slipped Juan Williams for the equivalent of stating that when he sees it’s raining out, he gets his umbrella. NPR president Vivian Schiller, evidently divining that disparaging fears of Muslim terrorists wouldn’t play well in a country that has suffered three serious terrorist attempts in a little over a year, added that this was merely the latest of a series of Williams outrages, but she produced no examples. Schiller now says that she “regrets” how the firing was handled.Obviously, there has to be another reason, and when we look around, we find none other than the Prog Twins, Soros and Obama. Not to forget David Brock…or is that the stupidest statement I ever typed? Obama has been having bad dreams about Fox, so Soros contributes a cool $1.8 million to NPR for the purpose of hiring one hundred investigative reporters to learn the truth about Bigfoot.
Another $1 mil went to Brock’s Media Matters for the purpose, I imagine, of mixing more mud to fling — they don’t do anything else. Then, as soon as the checks cleared, Williams finds himself out on the street.This is not a coincidence, comrades.
This is the Alinsky isolate-and-destroy method in textbook form.
A kindergarten textbook, granted — the idea appears to be to prevent any further liberal contact with Fox, limiting the network to unbalanced right-wing voices, and then to sit back and wait for an aroused public to march on the Fox offices with pitchforks and torches.
Don’t cry for Juan Williams.Lurking ahead are probably a seven-figure book deal, larger speaking fees, and loads more face time on television. NPR fired him, reconfirming the organization as a taxpayer-supported bastion of biased liberalism masquerading as “nonpartisan.”
So it’s all good.Williams, as liberals go, comes across as more reasonable than most. He wasn’t always like that. Years of getting his leftist butt kicked at the Fox round table by the likes of quick minds such as William Kristol, Brit Hume and the brilliant Charles Krauthammer made Williams more sensible.
He raised his game, which meant fewer silly emotional arguments and a more nuanced, if still often wrongheaded, criticism of “the right.”Williams got Krauthammered — almost on a daily basis. The intellectual firepower was so one-sided that if the Krauthammer-Williams exchanges had been prizefights, Nevada wouldn’t have licensed them.
So Williams moved toward the center.

Today I received a plea for help from the Tawakoni Area TEA Party.
They have a Mayor that is out of control and hates the TEA Party too.
He has fired 2 long time officers for no other apparent reason than the simple fact that they belong to the local TEA Party chapter.West Tawakoni is a small town in East Texas, they don’t have a lot of TEA Party members and I am not sure how well connected to the media they are, but I know how connected I am, and I know that I have friends in the powerful, and LARGE Dallas TEA Party.
I an certain that they will want to get involved in this.This has been sent to Drudge, Breitbart, FOX and Friends, several local media here in the Dallas area, but I can’t stress this enough, the MEDIA needs to get ALL OVER this one. If you have ANY contacts in the media, send this to them.
The media, and most of Conservative America got their knickers in a twist over Juan Williams being fired by NPR, a case that was, in MY opinion, a libber reaping what he had sown, but if Conservative America can get involved and outraged over that, what will their reaction to this be?I sincerely hope it’s not one of apathy.

Rep. Keith Ellison D-Minn. appeared on the Ed Schultz show and said Juan Williams is ‘Un-American’ and people like him contribute to ‘profiling and harassing Americans’ for his comments last week on Muslim airline passengers. Schultz agreed and said the Congressman’s comments were ‘right on the mark’.Williams responded to his firing by saying NPR was looking for a reason to get rid of him, and jumped all over the comments to do so.
The firing of Juan Williams by National Public Radio NPR, alleging that he was guilty of bigotry during a recent appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s FoxNews Channel television program, is another case of political correctness mixed with demagoguery run amuck.Here are the “horrific” words that did him in:
A frequent and highly sought-after guest on many MSM television news shows recently made another incredibly insensitive and racist comment.He said “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the street at night and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery — then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
#1: Who was this incredibly insensitive racist?
#2; Where did he say it?
#3: Juan Williams was fired for speaking the truth about his feelings.
What happened to this nationally known analyst when he said he was glad people following him in a potentially dangerous situation were White, not Black?

“Well, now that I no longer work for NPR let me give you my opinion. This is an outrageous violation of journalistic standards and ethics by management that has no use for a diversity of opinion, ideas or a diversity of staff (I was the only black male on the air). This is evidence of one-party rule and one sided thinking at NPR that leads to enforced ideology, speech and writing. It leads to people, especially journalists, being sent to the gulag for raising the wrong questions and displaying independence of thought.”—Juan Williams on his firing from National Public Radio
Obama’s Boss Buys NPR
By Joy Tiz Full Story
Just days after declaring himself “helpless” to stop the Republican avalanche coming next month, George Soros paid $1.8 million to purchase NPR. The money is supposed to be used to hire 1oo “news” reporters for his Impact of Government project. Soros’s OSI is using the project to target state governments, as he is doing with his nefarious SoS campaign. Obama’s boss is conniving to install regime-friendly operatives in Secretaries of State offices nationwide.

Soros-Funded Documentary Embraces Left-Wing Terrorists Who Plotted To Kill Republicans

I have my debut at Big Hollywood. It’s a piece on George Soros funding leftist documentaries.
Reposted from October 1, 2009
National Public Radio—financed partially with public funds and partially through individual and corporate donations—in theory has a rule that its reporters may not engage in politics. Having listened to NPR and a variety of other news outlets for years (in order to attain some semblance of perspective and balance) and having admittedly donated money to my local NPR station in the past, I have noticed a disturbing trend in their national reportage.
Biodiversity: Replaces Climate Change As The Weapon For Political Control
By Dr. Tim Ball Full Story
The reality that global warming and climate change are natural and current patterns are within historic patterns is taking hold. Fundamental common sense embedded in the majority of people joined with truth pursuers and the healing perspective of time to bring reason. As always, those who profit politically, financially, or both, fight a rearguard action. Partly to defend the misdirection, but often to move the focus, while maintaining the target. Some of these different foci hover around the edge of the main battleground, but most are unaware how they’re interconnected.
Western Jihad, Anwar al Awlaki & “the Saudi Factor”
By Doug Hagmann Full Story
As Americans, we were promised by President Bush that everyone responsible for the wholesale murder of nearly 3000 of our family members on September 11, 2001 and those harboring or aiding them would be brought to justice. Sadly, that promise was only partially true under the Bush administration, and demonstrably untrue under the current Obama administration. It is currently hindered by an unprecedented level of conflicts of interests within the Holder justice department.
Just days after declaring himself “helpless” to stop the Republican avalanche coming next month, George Soros paid $1.8 million to purchase NPR. The money is supposed to be used to hire 1oo “news” reporters for his Impact of Government project.
Soros’s OSI is using the project to target state governments, as he is doing with his nefarious SoS campaign. Obama’s boss is conniving to install regime-friendly operatives in Secretaries of State offices nationwide.In a completely unrelated story, NPR just fired its lone intellectually honest liberal and Fox News commentator, Juan Williams.
Soros also gave $1 million to Media Matters, another liberal cabal dedicated to harassing conservatives in the media and whining about Fox News.Soros may have abandoned all hopes for November, but he is investing heavily in subverting the 2012 election.
Joy Tiz is the author of It’s Not Easy Being God: the Real George Soros, coming November, 2010.
Welcome Juan Williams. You are the latest citizen of Imusville. And by Imusville, I mean a place where people who make their living talking end up when their buddies on the left forget the First Amendment and sacrifice them on the altar of political correctness.
And yes, I submit the Williams-Imus comparison is valid because at the time of his firing, Don Imus was about five years into an exploration of his inner liberal.More on that later.As you might remember, Imus was canned for an impolitic bit on his show about Rutgers women basketball players being “nappy headed hos.” Thus he was canned by MSNBC and the CBS Radio network, both of whom were carrying his show at the time. And in the prop wash of this event, Imus was defended only by those on the right — while liberals either piled on or remained silent on the sidelines.
We are still not sure if anyone in the Rutgers women’s program had actually ever heard of Don Imus before the incident.And we are witnessing the same thing in the Juan Williams NPR dust up, with liberal NPR doubling down on the move while conservative talkers are coming out of the woodwork to support Williams. Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Hassling white Duke lacrosse players?
Now back to Imus’s “inner liberal.”What is so striking about the Imus incident is that he was squashed by the very people he had been drifting shamelessly towards politically over a period of years. He was moving a bit more leftward almost daily. It really picked up speed after he married a tree hugging liberal — but much younger and less wrinkled — wife.He may never admit it, but Don Imus had changed a lot.
During an appearance Monday on Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor,” Juan Williams said: “When I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.
“National Public Radio has fired Mr. Williams for making this statement. And while I do not share Mr. Williams sentiments, so what?
NPR terminated its contract this evening with Juan Williams, who worked with them as a senior political analyst, after Williams appeared on Bill O’Reilly and spoke of a “Muslim dilemma:”VideoThe move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday.
On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.
He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried.
“He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood.
I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.A taxpaying-funded organization fired someone over their free speech?
NPR said in its statement that the remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”
