New polling, discussion website. Check it out here.
Because Fox will not sit on stories that put progressives in a bad light, like virtually every other outlet does. That’s why we go there.
When Ben Bradlee finally died- yes I said finally, the guy was a crooked journalist – some news outlets made references to Bradlee suppressing stories about “his good buddy” JFK. Yet, he was the only news outlet that kept digging and digging and digging trying to get something, anything, on Nixon. (When you watch All the President’s Men, the movie tries to suggest that they had no idea the operation would go as high as Nixon, and they were just “following leads wherever they may go.” That’s horsehockey. The mission from very early on was to see if it could get to Nixon.) Watergate pails in comparison to over a half dozen Obama scandals that I could rattle off the top of my head as a sit here. Where’s the Washington Post?
Bradlee’s job was supposed to be the watchdog over all government, but he was in the protection racket for half the politicians out there. What he practiced is not journalism. He was more of a hack district attorney, giving free passes to cronies and looking for anything and everything on political foes – sorta like Eric Holder.
Read about the “great” Ben Bradlee here. Good riddance.

Illegal alien, deported twice, shoots cop.
Marcelo Marquez allegedly shot and killed a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy and a Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy, and also allegedly shot and wounded a second Placer County deputy and a civilian on Friday. On Saturday, authorities revealed that the suspect — real name, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte — had already been deported twice from the United States.
According to Sacramento’s KCRA, he was “sent back in to Mexico in 1997 and again in 2001.”
The 1997 deportation was the result of “conviction in Arizona…on charges of possession of narcotics for sale.” He was arrested stateside in 2001 as well.

A recent blog post on Sightline, an environmental blog in the Northwest, celebrated the gusher of dependable revenue to Washington State flowing from a steep carbon tax. The post showcases just why a carbon tax is a dangerous policy. As we at IER have been warning for years, the advocates of a carbon tax are fooling themselves if they think it will be calibrated to the “optimal” level reflecting the “negative externality” of greenhouse gas emissions.

We’re performing scheduled maintenance. Learn more.” The message was posted on the site some time Tuesday evening:

A man jumped the White House fence on Wednesday evening and was attacked by Secret Service dogs before being arrested, a Secret Service spokesman said.
“Dogs got him,” spokesman Edwin Donovan said, referring to the intruder.
He identified the intruder as Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Maryland, and said he was unarmed at the time of his arrest.
Video showed Secret Service agents surrounding the man on the north lawn of the White House, which was put on lockdown for about 90 minutes. The man punched one of the dogs that attacked him, as seen in the video.
Two Secret Service dogs “were taken to a veterinarian for injuries sustained during the incident,” Donovan said.
