As if you needed them.
Hat tip to American Elephants.
Has been postponed.
I have some time off coming at my day job and I was planning to visit DC next week for a long weekend.
It’s been a long time since I visited the capital. I was planning to see some high school friends who live there, visit one or two of the Smithsonian Museums and take in some beltway nightlife.
Alas, it’s not going to happen next week.
Even though I have the time off, I’ve been so busy at work for the last few weeks I haven’t had any time to plan the trip.
Maybe I’ll go in June when I have more vacation time coming.
Of course, if you want to encourage me you could always hit my tip jar.
Thanks for reading and all the best,
Throughout the entire 2012 campaign, liberal progressives in government and media pushed the completely fake narrative of a Republican war on women. They even had low information voters (i.e. idiots) convinced that Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons.
The entire time that was going on, Democrats in the White House were waging a very real war on the First Amendment by investigating journalists who said things they didn’t like.
If you doubt this, just call the parents of FOX News reporter James Rosen. I think Eric Holder has their home phone number.
Bret Baier just reported that the freakin' DOJ seized the phone records of James Rosen's PARENTS!—

The All Star Panel on Special report covered the war on journalism tonight.
There are so many scandals breaking it’s hard to keep up. You may not have heard that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been fundraising for ObamaCare.
Major Garrett of CBS asked WHPS Jay Carney about it today and got a pathetic defensive response which aimed to reduce his question to claims of birtherism.
If this doesn’t prove the Obama administration is feeling the heat of all these scandals, nothing does.

What’s a liberal president mired in scandal to do?
Call on the Superfriends of Journolist!
That would be Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo, Ezra Klein of the Washington Post and Jonathan Capehart of the WaPo and MSNBC.
I wonder why they’re visiting the White House? Bowling? Chess? Slumber party?
Or could they be headed there to help a sinking administration coordinate a message? These guys consider themselves members of the press and they don’t even care that other members of their industry were unjustly investigated by the Obama administration.
There are two reasons for that. The first one is that these guys are members of what Orwell called The Inner Party. They don’t fear investigation from the state because they’re members of the state.
The second reason is that they’re not members of the press, they’re propagandists.
24 to 48 hours from now, there will be a new message coming out of all the lefty blogs and news outlets. It will be a coordinated narrative and it will be repeated ad nauseum until it’s picked up by the MSM.
That’s why the Kool-Aid gang is headed to the White House.
Count on it.
The Obama administration’s secret investigations of journalists has reached a breaking point.
The targeting of FNC’s James Rosen by the Department of Justice would have been the top story on most news channels tonight but was preempted by the Oklahoma tornado for obvious reasons.
Even liberal Glenn Greenwald concedes the gravity of this.
Accusing James Rosen of committing crimes – for basic reporting – may be the most dangerous thing the Obama DOJ has done yet—

Today on FOX News, before the tornado, Megyn Kelly addressed the issue.
I never thought I would say this but I hate Saturday Night Live.
In the clip below, Seth and Amy make a few remarks about the IRS scandal and Obama which are lighthearted at best.
Then we get the hey the Tea Party was just asking for it segment.
Way to speak truth to power, SNL. Do you defend rapists this way too?
Meet Lizz Winstead. She’s a comedian and according to her Twitter handle, she’s the co-creator of the Daily Show.
I wonder if Jon Stewart will be using any of these jokes on the air tonight.
Because nothing says funny like children trapped under crushed schools, right?
How long has Obama known about this Tornado?—

UPDATE: She deleted the tweet below but the language is still accurate.
This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives.—
Lizz Winstead (@lizzwinstead) May 20, 2013
Clearly, she’s the victim in all this.
UPDATE: Anything to say now Lizz?
KFOR reports 24 killed at elementary school in Moore, OK. Now recovery operation.—

Wow. Pray for the people of Oklahoma.
This afternoon a massive tornado struck in Oklahoma destroying entire neighborhoods and two schools.
Here are some tweets with images. Ed Morrisey has videos.
