In a recent appearance on Charlie Rose’s PBS show, Bill Maher had a sudden attack of the truth. Of course, he began his argument by saying all religions are stupid but that’s standard fare for Maher.
The amazing aspect of this segment is Maher’s willingness to point out that liberals give Islam a free pass for the many inaccuracies they assign to Christians.
It’s also very telling that Rose tries more than once to make those false equivalencies and continually references “moderate” Muslims.
Watch the whole thing, this will blow your mind. Video via National Review.
Thirteen years after the attacks of September 11, 2001 the conspiracy movement known as 9/11 Truthers is still being taken seriously in some circles. As John Nolte of Breitbart has pointed out, the MSM is filled with them…
Four Media Outlets with 9/11 Truthers On the Payroll
ABC: Rosie O’Donnell – On this anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, let us take a moment to thank ABC, home of World News Tonight, for re-hiring the most ignorant (fire can’t melt steel) and foul 9/11 Truther to ever enjoy the national spotlight. O’Donnell is not only returning to ABC’s “The View,” she’s doing so as the star and savior of the network’s aging current event series.
NBC News: Toure’ – Race grifter Toure’ stopped Tweeting some months ago. But the leftwing lunatic’s public Trutherism has been captured forever. Despite this, Toure’ has been made a wealthy One-Percenter thanks to a big fat paycheck from NBC News for his starring weekday role on MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”
CNN: Van Jones – You didn’t think the most disgraced name in news would fail to put a leftwing Truther on the payroll, did you? After Jones was ousted from the Obama administration for his Trutherism (among other things), CNN fell over itself to make him a wealthy part of the CNN family.
HuffPo: Donte Stallworth – After the leftwing Huffington Post announced its hiring of former NFL player Donte Stallworth (as a national security writer!), it took the Internet about 2 minutes to out him as a 9/11 Truther. In response, the HuffPo lied about Stallworth’s Trutherism, and it took the Internet less than a minute to expose the lie. As things stand, this 9/11 Truther remains a national security writer for the Huffington Post.
PJTV’s After Hours series addresses the issue below.
Obama is scared of the word “war” and so is everyone who works for him.
Back in August, state department spokeswoman Marie Harf insisted that ISIL is not at war with America even as ISIL members claimed they were.
Today, less than 24 hours after Obama’s ISIS speech, Secretary of State John Kerry also insisted we’re not at war with ISIS.
Kerry: U.S. not at war with ISIS
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration’s strategy includes “many different things that one doesn’t think of normally in context of war.”
“What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation,” Kerry told CNN’s Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. “It’s going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it’s a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts.”
In the 1983 film Risky Business, one character delivers this line to Tom Cruise…
Say what the fuck. If you can’t say it, you can’t do it.
The same rule applies in war, whether the Obama administration likes it or not.
I never met Paul Tegtmeier but I remember him every year on 9/11.
I was first introduced to him in 2009 by Project 2,996 – a website that asks bloggers to create individual memorials to people who perished on 9/11.
Since then I’ve learned much more about Paul Tegtmeier and he has become one of my heroes.
From the New York Times in 2001…
After watching his number creep up the list of new hires for 20 years, Paul Tegtmeier finally got the call 18 months ago to become a New York City firefighter, at the age of 40. He quit his job as a field technician at Verizon and picked up his crisp uniform.
“He met the age cutoff, from the time that he applied,” said his wife, Catherine. , “His was the last class taken off that list. Firefighting was something he wanted to do since he was a toddler and he only wanted to do it in New York City.”
Mr. Tegtmeier, 41, a father of two, was on his way to Ladder Company 46 in the Bronx when the first plane struck 1 World Trade Center. Fire officials say that he likely reached the firehouse in time to join his colleagues as they rushed toward the twin towers, Mrs. Tegtmeier said. He loved firefighting, and was volunteer for more than 20 years at the Roosevelt, N.Y., Fire Department, where he met his wife, also a volunteer firefighter.
His 6-year-old son, Aric, lives very much in his parents’ image. A couple of days after the collapse, Aric pulled on his firefighting helmet, coat and boots and fought invisible fires on the front lawn with firefighters who came to mourn the loss of his dad.
You will never be forgotten, Paul.
What does the first “I” in ISIS stand for?
It’s stunning that on the eve of the 13 year anniversary of 9/11, the current president of the United States said ISIS has nothing to do with Islam.
If you need further proof that the left lives in a la-la land where things are true just because they feel it should be, Obama delivered tonight.
Alternately titled: Obama’s big Hey everyone, I’m finally taking the threat of ISIS seriously speech.
I’ll be watching Twitter and will post observations as they become available.
Feel free to leave comments as well.
Here we go.
Republican New Mexico governor Susana Martinez is facing an old white male Dem challenger this year.
Apparently, he’s a better judge of who’s truly Latino than she is.
NM Dem Says GOP Guv Martinez ‘Does Not Have a Latino Heart’
Susana Martinez of New Mexico is the first female Hispanic governor in the country. She’s also a gun-toting, tough-on-crime conservative Republican, and that’s got Democrats in New Mexico itching to defeat her. Martinez’s Democratic opponent for reelection this year is attorney general Gary King, the son of former three-term governor Bruce King. In new video obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD, the younger King told fellow Democrats at a fundraiser that Martinez “does not have a Latino heart.”
Here’s the video:
Imagine the field day the media would have with this if a white male Republican said such a thing about a Democrat Latino woman.
Now you know why this won’t get any coverage in the mainstream press.
Strange, isn’t it?
Liberals are always saying they’re all about choice and they demonize Republicans on the subject whenever they get the chance. Along comes a Republican who wants to offer women more choices and suddenly everything changes.

Planned Parenthood Wants to Limit Women’s Access to Birth Control to Save Obamacare
We’ve officially reached a new and obscene level of hypocrisy, folks.
As I write about extensively in my latest book Assault and Flattery: The Truth About the Left and Their War on Women, liberal organizations parading as women’s rights groups aren’t actually concerned about women, but instead about expanding government and implementing socialist policies in America.
Case-in-point. Colorado Republican Congressman and U.S. Senate Candidate Cory Gardner has suggested birth control pills should be over-the-counter as part of his campaign platform and stance on women’s health. Instead of applauding Gardner’s approach, which would greatly expand women’s access to birth control, Planned Parenthood has come out against him. The justification? Obamacare and government dependence for women is better.
It’s almost like Democrats care more about government control than women.
Everyone at Breitbart should just claim that they lost all of their emails.
I’m surprised it took this long for the IRS to target them…
Breitbart News says IRS targeted company for audit
The company that runs the conservative Breitbart.com news site says the IRS has selected the network for an audit, in a move company executives suggest is politically motivated.
Breitbart News Network, a California-based company which runs several conservative websites, says the IRS recently audited its 2012 financial information.
“The Obama administration’s timing on this is exquisite, but try as they might through various methods to silence us, we will only get more emboldened,” Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, said in a written statement.
The audit comes as the agency faces sustained complaints that it targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny as they sought nonprofit status, before the agency ended the practice last year.
It’s too bad Andrew Breitbart is no longer with us. I’d love to hear what he’d have to say about this.
This could present a slight problem for Democrats in November…
Support for ObamaCare continues to fall
Public approval of ObamaCare continued to sink this summer, issuing the latest warning for vulnerable Democrats who will face voters this fall after backing the law.
Just 35 percent of voters now support the Affordable Care Act, down 3 percentage points from May, according to a monthly poll by the Kaiser Health Foundation released on Tuesday. Support for the healthcare overhaul law once stood at 50 percent, just weeks after it was signed in 2010.
The way the law was passed was an insult to everything America stands for.
Democrats deserve to pay dearly for forcing it on the people.
