Associated Press, by David Bauder Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Sat, 28 41 2015 01:41:09 GMT New York ' Following several stories questioning Bill O´Reilly´s past reporting, a liberal media watchdog has ordered its researchers to comb through years of the Fox News Channel host´s writings, radio and television shows and public appearances to find examples of inconsistencies. O´Reilly is squarely in the crosshairs of Media Matters for America, an illustration of how the media is subject to the same political campaigns as politicians. Fox is standing behind O´Reilly, but the extent to which cable news´ most popular personality is damaged may depend on how many more stories come out.

McClatchy DC News, by Rob Hotakainen Posted By: NorthernDog- Sat, 28 30 2015 01:30:17 GMT WASHINGTON — After making hundreds of billions of dollars running casinos, American Indian tribes are getting a good whiff of another potential moneymaker: marijuana.

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial Posted By: KarenJ1- Sat, 28 12 2015 01:12:10 GMT Politics: The president has ordered the reclassification of AR'15 bullets as a threat to lawmen, effectively banning them. It´s nonsense. But we see what´s going on: a backdoor bid to ban guns and scrap the Second Amendment. It shouldn´t be forgotten that the one time President Obama publicly showed a lot of anger came when the assault'weapon ban he proposed in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre failed to pass in Congress. In that effort, his minions had falsely claimed that the gunman had used an AR'15 Bushmaster rifle, which was never the case. But that didn´t matter, because the

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial Posted By: KarenJ1- Sat, 28 09 2015 01:09:03 GMT Rule Of Law: First, the president issues unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then, he dares an equal branch of government to vote on his orders´ legality so he can veto it. Is he establishing a monarchy? While speaking at a town hall meeting Wednesday night at Florida International University, President Obama clearly indicated that he believes he is the final authority on law in this country. He will not tolerate dissent. "If Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I´m doing is

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon Posted By: Dreadnought- Sat, 28 08 2015 01:08:37 GMT Prostitution may be the world’s oldest profession, but anti'Semitism is probably the world’s oldest bigotry. It’s come and gone and come and gone and then come and gone again since the days of the pharaohs. Well, maybe it was never really gone, but, like cancer, it was in remission. Born at the end of World War II, I was one of those lucky Jews to be born in a period of remission as never before seen, particularly in the United States. It’s over. And how it’s over. You don’t need a poll to tell you that, but a new one
