Former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod – the woman who disputed now-deceased Andrew Breitbart’s videotaped version of her supposed racist rant, and subsequently sued – has moved to have the conservative icon’s wife named as the defendant in the case.
Anthony D. Weiner, former New York Democratic representative and current New York City mayoral candidate, has been a huge embarrassment to the American political process.
It portends to be a fierce demonstration, as in days of yore: The Tea Party Patriots will assemble at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday for an "Audit the IRS" rally in support of conservative groups that were subject to some uncomfortable scrutiny by the federal agency in recent years. The tea partyers will have some high profile company. Independent media maven Glenn Beck plans to be there, despite his own misgivings about visiting the veritable heart of big government.
Hey. Wait a minute. Those conservative groups targeted by the IRS may be needing a little cash in the aftermath, say 26 high-profile conservatives leaders who are calling for new legislation to reimburse the grass-roots folks. The coalition — which includes Richard Viguerie, James Dobson, Ralph Reed, Phyllis Schlafly, David Bossie and Gary Bauer — have contacted House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, advising the lawmakers that oversight hearings are all well and fine. But where's the money?
As the director of "Hating Breitbart," which was released digitally and in theaters last week across the United States, I had the distinct and unique privilege of following Andrew Breitbart during the closing years of his public life, documenting his speeches, conversations, ruminations and mischief - we even shot one of his haircuts.
During the week that found America coping with the Boston Marathon terrorist attack and a deadly factory explosion, the broadcast networks remained in biased business-as-usual mode.
A spate of Democratic lawmakers are using March Madness to raise some campaign funds as the NCAA men's basketball tournament arrives in the nation's capital.
The 2.4 million-member American Legion is mighty vexed with "The Amazing Race" after the CBS reality show featured the wreckage of a B-52 bomber shot down during the Vietnam War. The plane is now the centerpiece of a monument celebrating "defeat of U.S. imperialists."
The CPAC crowd reaffirmed its heroes with gusto: God, Ronald Reagan, the late Andrew Breitbart, Barry Goldwater, the Founding Fathers, William F. Buckley Jr., Sen. Rand Paul and a new entry to the traditional roster — the young.
One year ago today, my friend and former publisher Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly of a heart attack in Los Angeles.
Neil Armstrong would always be taking that first step onto the moon, and Dick Clark was forever "the world's oldest teenager." Some of the notables who died in 2012 created images in our minds that remained unchanged over decades.
Many comedians whose strong suit is observational humor have become incredibly wealthy simply by stating the obvious -- with a twist. You hear one of their jokes and say, "It's funny because it's true." If, after "funny," you add "and annoying," you have the guts of Greg Gutfeld's latest offering, "The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph Over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage."
The liberal media are "shamelessly" using President Obama's re-election to steer the Republican Party away from the conservative mindset, says a pithy new Media Research Center study on recent national news coverage. Indeed, conservatives have been painted as a moldering, deranged bunch in the last week.
The most telling numbers are often the most simple numbers. President Obama has conducted 222 re-election fundraisers in the past 18 months, more than any other incumbent president. Consider that President George W. Bush held 86 during his first term in office, and in comparable times, Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush staged 70 and 24, respectively. Ronald Reagan, incidentally, held no fundraisers during his 1984 re-election campaign.
This year's political campaigns are saturated with money, yet the Federal Election Commission, the watchdog on all the raising and spending, is issuing fewer warnings and completing fewer audits — and even when it does issue fines, political committees routinely don't bother to pay.
Ms. Sherrod wants to sub in Susannah Breitbart's name and collect in court a financial award for the alleged "libel and slander," Mr. Breitbart caused, Politico reported.
Andrew had written a similar piece in The Washington Times and told me that we should coordinate our efforts to defend Mr. Bush because so many conservatives had abandoned him.
