I found this one particularly interesting in light of Bill Clinton's contention that the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" that Obama is supposedly facing is nothing like what Bubba had to deal with. Breitbart points out that Obama and Clinton had lunch in New York on the very day(s) that the ACORN video exposing the Brooklyn office was making the rounds.
Does anyone think the president and the former president were unaware that the city in which they were dining was mesmerized by the ACORN scandal - especially since ACORN had bragged that its employees had kicked Mr. O'Keefe and Ms. Giles out of their New York office?
Then, a few paragraphs later.....
No one in the morally superior media world has asked, why did Mr. Obama have lunch with Mr. Clinton that day? So let me take a guess, and it seems like an obvious answer. Mr. Obama, under siege by a video-a-day expose that was exposing the Democratic Party to an avalanche of consequences (ACORN defunded in the House and Senate, ACORN delinked from the census, etc.), needed advice from the last president to navigate through a major political scandal.
If any president has experience in dealing with scandals, it would be #42. Who said Barack lacked good judgment?

The real point of BREITBART'S PIECE is to shed light on former Clinton Chief of Staff and Chairman of Obama's Presidential transition team, John Podesta. Podesta, who heads the Center for American Progress has been tasked with leading an investigation into ACORN, which doesn't seem to be going the way most would expect according to Breitbart:
Since Mr. Podesta was appointed to investigate ACORN, the only thing investigated has been the investigators, Mr. O'Keefe, Ms. Giles and the publisher of the journalism behind it, yours truly.
And for those of you who at times grow weary of the fight....
The left is betting that 2009 is 1998 again and that the media will help them out like last time. Mr. Obama is betting that Mr. Clinton's 1998 strategy and his resources can extricate him from this growing mess. But 2009 has a new set of circumstances, new technologies and new citizen journalists that can now hold the mainstream media in check for its naked partisanship.
Breitbart's point that Podesta is consciously leading the media to make the story about O'Keefe, Giles, and himself is well taken considering that Podesta attended ACORN's 39th anniversary party.

Here is Podesta entering ACORN'S 39th anniversary party this past June. Also in attendance was Chuck Schumer.


Howard Kurtz came off as the defensive anchor and Christoper Andersen as the author having to defend the quotation marks he put in his book, "Barack and Michelle". Interestingly, one of the things that Andersen's book does is help to bolster the claims of writer Jack Cashill, who has been claiming since July, 2008 that Barack Obama had help from Bill Ayers in writing his 1995 book, "Dreams From My Father".

Check out Andersen's interview..

Here's some information on Cashill from SPECIAL GUESTS. Cashill is apparently doing media interviews intending to expound on the findings of Andersen, which definitely do not hurt Cashill's claims.



Count me as being in the camp of those who believe there was a Middle Eastern connection to the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. Oh, that reminds me. Has anyone seen John Doe #2 lately? You have the extremely thorough and unrefuted evidence of Jayna Davis along with Bill Clinton's words shortly after the bombing as relayed by Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating in which Clinton expressed a strong wish that the bombing not have a Middle Eastern connection.

Notice how closely Timothy McVeigh resembles John Doe #1 and how Terry Nichols looks NOTHING like John Doe #2. Today, we have a story on NEWSMAX about an attorney who requested video tapes under the Freedom of Information Act.
Long-secret security tapes showing the chaos immediately after the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building are blank in the minutes before the blast and appear to have been edited, an attorney who obtained the recordings said Sunday.

However, there's a small problem. Apparently all of the cameras ran out of tape moments before the bombing and came back on line moments after the bombing. Talk about bad luck!

"The real story is what's missing," said Jesse Trentadue, a Salt Lake City attorney who obtained the recordings through the federal Freedom of Information Act as part of an unofficial inquiry he is conducting into the April 19, 1995, bombing that killed 168 people and injured hundreds more.
Even the strongest skeptic has got to be scratching his head on this one:
"Four cameras in four different locations going blank at basically the same time on the morning of April 19, 1995. There ain't no such thing as a coincidence," Trentadue said.

He said government officials claim the security cameras did not record the minutes before the bombing because "they had run out of tape" or "the tape was being replaced."

"The interesting thing is they spring back on after 9:02," he said. "The absence of footage from these crucial time intervals is evidence that there is something there that the FBI doesn't want anybody to see."
Four video cameras all go blank at the same time, which just happens to be moments before an explosion that killed 168 people?

My belief is that there is little doubt that JAYNA DAVIS is right, folks.


Bubba does a lot of prognosticating in this clip with David Gregory. Says the Right wing conspiracy isn't as strong as it was when he was president in 1994 but it's just as "virulent". Note the reason he gives (the country is more diverse now than it was then - I wonder if that's a reference to the increase in illegal aliens).

Prognostication of the clip? When asked if he worries if the VRWC can make things as bad for Obama as they did for Clinton Bubba says,

"There's no way they can make it that bad." Aside from "bad" being a subjective term, Bill's making a bold statement while attempting to marginalize all of the town hall protesters.

And then the big Kahuna... "Whatever happens, it'll be manageable for the president."

Bill, have you seen Obama's poll numbers?



New York Times public editor, Clark Hoyt has admitted that his paper was late reporting on the Acorn story of a couple of young aspiring journalists (Hoyt calls them "conservative activists") exposing what very well could be a systemic problem within an organization that Barack Obama has very close ties to.

Was this a contrite act of admission or a forced admission of omission? I thought the fourth paragraph was particularly telling:
for days, as more videos were posted and government authorities rushed to distance themselves from Acorn, The Times stood still. Its slow reflexes — closely following its slow response to a controversy that forced the resignation of Van Jones, a White House adviser — suggested that it has trouble dealing with stories arising from the polemical world of talk radio, cable television and partisan blogs. Some stories, lacking facts, never catch fire. But others do, and a newspaper like The Times needs to be alert to them or wind up looking clueless or, worse, partisan itself.
That's what we call damage control boys and girls. The NYT is worried about looking "partisan". Newsflash: YOU ALREADY ARE.

I would really like to give Hoyt and the Times credit for seeing the light but this strikes as nothing more than a response to something that was so blatantly over-the-top when it comes to Acorn, that even the New York Times couldn't spin it or ignore it.

Ah, then comes the ignorance defense.
Some editors told me they were not immediately aware of the Acorn videos on Fox, YouTube and a new conservative Web site called When the Senate voted to cut off all federal funds to Acorn, there was not a word in the newspaper or on its Web site. When the New York City Council froze all its funding for Acorn and the Brooklyn district attorney opened a criminal investigation, there was still nothing.
I guess the term "immediately" is relative but at best, it can usually only be stretched to mean "same day". The problem here is that if the New York Times is "objective" as they claim, why on earth don't they know about the videos?

Apparently, "immediately" in New York Times speak is one week.
Finally, on Sept. 16, nearly a week after the first video was posted, The Times took note of the controversy, under the headline, “Conservatives Draw Blood From Acorn, Favored Foe.” The article said that conservatives hoped to weaken the Obama administration by attacking its allies and appointees they viewed as leftist. The conservatives thought they had a “winning formula,” the article said, mobilizing people “to dig up dirt,” then trumpeting it on talk radio and television.
Again, damage control and not contrition as Hoyt merely says the political tone "irritated readers". Mr. Hoyt, ever heard of the saying, "where there's smoke, there's fire"?

Anyway, the good news is the extremely biased New York Times was obviously seething about having to write this piece and it was a bit fun watching them have to admit to being inept. The bad news is that it was a "yeah, but" apology without an actual apology.

The fact that Hoyt had to write about it is a victory nonetheless.

Worth reading the ENTIRE PIECE


Yes, even the far-left has to admit that Glenn Beck has come a long way in 14 years. Look no further than this 30 second commercial in which the promo or Y95 actually includes a LIVE monkey (and it's not Beck).

Much is made about the first black president but looking how far the most influential Television personality has come ain't too bad either.


h/t to LITTLE GREEN FOOTBALLS (who apparently doesn't like Beck)


During this morning's show, I reported on a story posted on the NewsBusters website that claimed a certain Capitol Hill switchboard phone number was being used to push Obamacare by playing a recorded message that asks for your support before ringing to a live person.

NEWSBUSTERS has posted a retraction and admitted the mistake. If you decide to listen to the 9/27 program, please dismiss that portion of the show.
