Thank God for you, Kirsten. Finally, someone in the media with the cojones to do what's right. Keep it up. Go strong, girl! Do not back down, do not give in. You now have another loyal reader of yours.
KP is not going rouge, she is simply showing liberals what honest, factual, reporting and commentary looks like. I don't think she is, all of suuden, more conservative...she is just being honest. It smacks of strip changing because we are so acustom to liberal spin and outright lies. When one of them starts speaking truth to power we naturally assume they are changing thier political worldview. Although, she may have no choice...it seems lies and deception are a critical tenant of the democrat platform...if they were honest about thier agenda they would cease to exist as a political party. That has been the epiphany leading to many conversions. So...maybe she is turning. Whew..that was a circular way of refuting my initial premise uh.
I just can't handle Kristen playing her new role. So is she a liberal or conservative? Does she just go with the way the wind is blowing? She will never have any credibility with me.
But will the media continue to cover for Nobama until the election is wrapped and he possibly wins re-election? If this story was given the time that it truly deserves, I think it would have a devastating effect on Nobamas re-election chances. I like to believe that, despite the whiners and graspers in the Dem party, there are still plenty of decent folks that care about their country and their countrymen/women who work for us in foreign countries and the military that keeps our freedoms. I like to believe that most Americans who aren't left wing wack jobs would hang Nobama out to dry if there was a BIG media dust up about this- which there should be- and that it would all get laid at Nobamas feet.
But, without the story becoming huge and getting the play that it deserves, Nobama gets another pass and may continue on as the most incompetent president in U.S. history. Honestly, he makes Carter look like a statesman.
She's married to a Copt from Egypt & needless to say, not too happy about the Muslim Brotherhood takeover there. I think that's what began her 'awakening'. She talks to family on the frontlines there weekly. I wouldn't be surprised in the least in she secretly votes Romney / Ryan.
I have always thought Kirsten Powers was extremely fair. She takes issues on their own merit and doesn't lump them all into the liberal agenda. I'm not so sure she's as much a liberal as she is a democrat. I don't always agree with her, but she's not afraid to speak the truth even when it makes the liberals look bad.
Kirsten Powers is married to an Egyptian - that is the only reason she is raising such a fuss about what is happening in the ME - otherwise, she would be sticking to the script for Dem journolists and rejoicing over the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Caliphate over the entire region -
She's right to question the MSM's lack of concern over this serious national security matter. The area is too hostile for the FBI but our ambassador was there on 9/11 without any security? Clinton and Rice should resign!
Bingo! Let's pray the October surprise will not be another AQ attack on American soil. I can see these insane Dhimmis trying to delay the election.
Slowly, but slowly, Kirsten is starting to get it. I expect she will soon shunned by fellow liberals and democrats for daring to show independent thought and show some concern for the country and it's people. I'm just thinking here what it would be like on The Five if they got rid of the two buffoon "liberals" and brought on Kirsten to replace them. The comic relief would go down, but so would the blood pressure as we might actually get an intelligent debate with her on the panel.
Sorry to say it folks but after this ordeal I've come to the same conclusion Michael Schauer has. Americans wont get it until thousands of Americans are dead. Its gonna take something much worse than 9/11 to wake up this lazy out of touch country. When it does I hope the media run for the hills cause they have a huge responsibility for this cataclysmic failure of foreign policy.
I don't have any faith in this election. After ALL the bad economic numbers and the bat $hit crazy Muslims and Obama is ahead decidedly. I DO believe the polls. The electorate is gone. There is no tipping point because its already tilted towards hell. The Left has succeeded in their indoctrination of children for decades and this is what we have here. We've let ourselves down and can blame only ourselves for letting evil teach our kids liberal views and sitting on our a$$'$. Sorry but this country is supposed to be a majority Christian? Surely not. It can't be that because how would we be sitting at the back of the bus. A lot of Christians are voting Obama and that is an example of how far down the rabbit hole we have gone. I'm sorry Lord for our irresponsibility. Please forgive us and give us YOUR strength cause that's how much strength we'll need to survive. God Bless Gods America.
Thank You, Kirsten. Nothing has ever been more important to the safety of the United Sates; as well as the planet. Syria is saber-rattling with the chemical weapons in Syria. Al-Assad stated, only three days ago; that he has no interest in reform.
Couple this with a nuclear Iran. Even the capacity to put dirty bombs in an insurgents hands; would be catastrophic.
Was Watergate really more serious than the rampant corruption rippling through this administration at every level?
The MSM seems to be one monolithic bobble-head. It's journalistic malpractice. If I didn't see and hear it each day, I wouldn't believe it. Does "free press" now refer to the press as free to be as slanted as possible? When you listen to them, do you get the impression that you're hearing from an O' defender, closer to him than Michelle?
The percentage of people who trust the MSM implicitly today is about 8%. This seemingly coordinated press is reminiscent of government approved news behind an iron curtain. There's a lot of truth out there. Would that the press report some of it.
Romney has been running against Obama and the media at large. People aren't mushrooms and probably don't appreciate being treated like they are.
She's much more evenly moderate than their other guests. I appreciate that her eyes are finally opening.
Obama and the media is equivalent to a sick dysfunctional marriage between two evil people. Obama is the abuser/molester and the media is his demented obsessed voyeur wife who complicatedly covers up his recurrent crimes. Within this union between Obama and his lovers in the Joseph Goebbels media we have been observing the sickest propaganda perversions America has ever seen.
It is happening, right before our eyes... November won't come soon enough.
But wait!!! Obama killed Osama??? All the terrorist are dead now right??? You suckers!!!! MARXIST=DEMOCRATS=TERRORIST All the same. Just ask President Pantywaist Obama.
Wow, for a woman who dated super-liberal Anthony Weiner, Kirsten has come a long way. But she brings up an excellent point. Is this the start of a new wave of attacks against the United States? Just like our embassy bombings in Africa prior to 9/11, is this a signal of bigger things to come? Also, if I were one of our few European allies left, I would be very interested, too, because what's to stop al Qaeda from attacking an American target in Europe rather than the United States? Europe is a lot closer to the Middle East than America, and A LOT easier to get into. I'm sure intelligence agencies all over Europe are looking into this. Too bad our mainstream media isn't that interested.
What does she mean by "could be complicit"? They are a full fledged fifth columnists in every sense of the word. We all know their agenda which is as anti-American as their leaders, Soros and Obama.
Don't hate me, fellow conservatives, but I am really starting to like her. Yeah, yeah, she's a lib....but she has grown to think for herself for the most part. She no longer sticks to Obama talking points at all cost. We still disagree on the issues, but I can respect someone who thinks for themselves and doesn't try to carry the water for a party by using lies and excuses that no one believes.
I definitely have more respect for her unlike Juan Williams who always sticks to White House talking points.
Me too. But somehow her point has to be made over and over again in the following days. The MSM can think they are playing some inside the Beltway parlor game of "Let's Re-Elect Obama," but they are putting the country in danger, by not asking the tough questions they would demand of a Republican President.
Yes, you are so right. I'm glad you brought that up because that is an extremely important point...actually the most important point.
I would never hate or dislike anyone simply because they are Democrat. Although many are clueless or misguided, many have good intentions. I think they simply do not understand by helping people too much you are simply enabling them thus hurting them. They are like the parents who never want to discipline their children because they don't want to hurt their feelings or upset them. But they need to learn that wrongdoing brings pain. They never learn to stand on their own two feet.
Liberals want everyone to like them which to me is a lack of confidence in oneself. (there are conservatives who go to the other extreme and have too much confidence which equates to arrogance and self righteousness.)
I don't hate anyone just for being Democrat, either. I have friends that are Democrat and we just don't talk politics.
However, there are exceptions. Most Democrat voters are being duped. The movie stars have good intentions. Angelina Jolie loves kids and adopts kids from poverty stricken nations. But, she's being lied to. I do hate the politicians like Obama that use innocent people's intentions to destroy them with. Like Obama claiming he wants to help the poor. It's a freaking lie!! He represented slum lords a s a lawyer. He uses the poor to advance an agenda, and that makes me sick. Innocent libs like Angelina Jolie fall for the hoax. Obama's policies intentionally destroy this country and he is using the good will of Democrat voters to do it with. I HATE HIM.
Every once in a while Kirsten makes good common sense but only when the time is right for her to make a spotlight point. Much like Geraldo steps in the truth once in a great while too.
Once you believe the government should be the answer to all man-kinds problems you have lost your soul and no longer believe in the human spirit or that we are driven to be the best we can be.
A Government solution always means - over spending, fraud, waste, corruption, and less freedoms for all of us. Duh!
The Bigger Government Gets The Less Freedoms all of us have. Another no-brainer the left can't seem to get into their cast iron skillet heads.
Hum..... I may have to e-mail Catherine Herridge and ask her to do some digging into this "movie trailer" guy. He has used so many alias names, he said when he was originally arrested and prosecuted it was under one of his false names. Who the heck is this guy? Frankly I want to know his rap sheet and his background.
Today they said he broke 8 probation restrictions. OK.... what were they? I also heard he left the country during probation without permission. When did he do that & where did he go?
When they arrested him on "whatever" the original charges were, supposed bank fraud via the internet, he cooperated with the feds in exchange for a 21 month sentence plus the terms of probation. I'd love to know the specifics of the charges.
I just have a gut feeling that there is MUCH more to this story. The whole thing seems so odd to me.
Follow the Fast and Furious model. Marxists believe that the end justifies the means. They want to take guns and ammunition away, they try to create a crisis to sway public opinion. They want to control freedom of speech, they try to create a National security crisis and blame a movie trailer. Obama and our corrupt Congress have already given themselves the law needed to control or shut down the Internet for "National security" or emergency reasons. Our Republic and Constitution is their enemy. Marxism works best when the power resides in the Government and not with the people. Any wonder why Government control of Banking, Energy, Health care, food supply, Communications media are all on their agenda? It is a royal pain in their ass having to sway or control public opinion and silly elections. They would much prefer to just give orders. One saving grace is that Liberals are such lousy leaders and screw up so often. Republicans are much better at being cautious and patient. Dems want it all, now. They are getting caught too much and the GOPe wants to be back in charge because of it. If you see the Media start to turn, it could just be that Romney has been blessed with the reins because Obama is such a screw up. George Soros has said Romney wouldn't be so bad and not much would change except for maybe a few undesirable Supreme Court appointments. The big boys want a controlled, professional job, when leading the sheep. Obama may not be working smart enough for them.
I'd like to know why they had no interest in arresting him before they used his video as an excuse for the terrorist attack. If he violated his probation in so many ways, why did they allow him to go untouched until they conveniently used his video as the fall guy for Obama?
