By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham Editor’s note. This is excerpted from Newsbusters and reposted with permission. Like Pavlov’s dogs, the liberal media salivated over the arrival of Barack Obama to receive a “Profile in Courage” award from the John F. Kennedy Library.

By Dave Andrusko As is our custom with the last post of the day, this will be brief. With other more pressing things to do last night, I watched President Obama’s farewell address this morning. After watching and then reading the transcript, here are three quick thoughts. First, Mr. Obama ended his speech with his …Continue reading "Now that President Obama is about to leave, yes, we can!"
By Curtis Houck My friends, it’s happened. Following President Obama’s farewell address on Tuesday night, ABC poured out warm fuzzies for the President as the assembled liberal journalists bowed down to his “sermon on democracy” doubling as a “song of hope” of “what [it] can look like now that we are a diverse nation.” While …Continue reading "ABC Loses It Post-Obama ‘Sermon on Democracy’; ‘Song of Hope’ Showing ‘What’s Possible’"
By Dave Andrusko Kudos to WMAL’s Chris Plante who spoke eloquently about the double standard on display when it was announced the Democratic National Committees is building a ‘war room’ (staffed by “former aides to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign”) to fight every proposal from pro-life President-elect Donald Trump.

By Dave Andrusko What a morning it was as my wife and I shared astonishment over two stories from today’s Washington Post. The stories are so remarkable I’ll offer separate posts. The first will be reflections on David Nakamura’s story headlined, “Obama adopts a grand design to shape his legacy.” The second–a puff piece even …Continue reading "Obama using his time as a lame-duck to “shape the narrative” about his presidency"
By Rep. Diane Black (R-Tn.) Editor’s note. This first ran on Fox News.com. As President Obama runs out the clock on the last months of his Administration, promulgating sweeping rules and acting by executive fiat wherever possible, perhaps he should use his pen and phone to make another unilateral move: putting Planned Parenthood Federation of …Continue reading "The insidious way Team Obama is funneling money to Planned Parenthood"
By Dave Andrusko While Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Sen. Bernie Sanders are awash in media coverage, Richard Benedetto, a retired USA Today White House correspondent and columnist, raises an intriguing question of selective media passivity in a column that appeared last Friday in the Wall Street Journal: “How Obama Gets Away With It.” What …Continue reading "A straightforward explanation “How Obama Gets Away With It”"
