‘Transparency’: ‘Media lockdown’ at Biden event in Chicago


Some reporters seem like they’re getting a little tired of getting the run-around from the most transparent administration in history.


They can’t have people like that participating. That could create a breach in the narrative.





Reporter: Obama ‘the greatest threat to press freedom in a generation’

Journalists: ‘Stifling of free expression is happening’ despite Obama’s pledge

Hillary’s nonsensical #BringBackOurGirls tweet blasted with brutal truth

What sparked that excellent question? Oh, just Hillary Clinton’s latest foolish remark. Some background: Hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted by a jihadist terrorist group in Nigeria. Twitter users joined the worldwide protests, using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. :

International pressure on Nigeria is mounting with protesters taking to the streets around the world to demand the rescue of hundreds of schoolgirls abducted by the jihadist terrorist group Boko Haram.

From Los Angeles to London, demonstrators carried posters reading #BringBackOurGirls — a campaign that began on Twitter following the mass abduction of the girls in April — and chanted “Bring them home!,” “Not for sale!” and “African lives matter!”

Hillary Clinton’s contribution?

Um, what? As opposed to the good reasons to target innocent girls? Hey, never let a tragedy go to waste, right Hillary? Even if it means issuing nonsensical statements.


A question for Hillary:



And this Twitter user brings it all home with brutal truth:

But, you know, “what difference does it make?”

Gun grabbers attack Sarah Palin for wanting Fort Hood soldiers armed

Sarah Palin was among the many people mourning yesterday’s tragic shooting at Fort Hood, which left four people dead. And this morning, she suggested that allowing the soldiers to carry arms may have helped :

How dare she advocate on soldiers’ behalf!

Except this isn’t about politics. This is about protecting the men and women who serve this country by allowing them to protect themselves. You’d hope that given everything that’s happened, gun control advocates would understand this. Alas, they never seem to learn. Logic is hard; lashing out at Sarah Palin is much easier.

It’s “you’re,” genius. And at Fort Hood, only security and military police are permitted to carry weapons. Soldiers are not, and as a result, they may end up in harm’s way.

Three cheers for tolerance.
