right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax

Everyone knows the biggest scandle [sic] in American history was the group "Scandle [sic] featuring Patty Smyth."


Watching the two kiss up like that on the clip reminds us of the joanie/sparky or the sparky/coiler show. That's pretty much their modus operendi.
I think this is mostly sensationalization on their part, no real fire here just a little smoke blown by little people who are entertainers and blow-hards, certainly not news reporters.


This is kind of sad.

When Fox picks up the hoooey, and when Rush and Savage and they all jump on board and all the semi-sane media doesn't pick the hooey up, that's when conservatives feel whole. It's when they can tell themselves they are being persecuted. Much like Koresh and Moon's crowd, it makes them feel special, like they really are the chosen people fighting evil.


Ultimately, what they are doing is demonizing any source of info that doesn't follow their world view. They do it to news outlets, individuals and organizations. By telling all those little old folks who watch O'reilly that NBC, the NYT, the WP, CNN, BBC, PBS etc, etc are evil, then the old folks don't listen to or get close to the truth/reality. They only trust approved sources of info like Rush, Fox and the queen bee, the Washington Times. It's a form of information control, a mind control technique.

Great way to maintain ratings - just condition your viewers that the rest of the world and their competition is out to get them, persecute them and deceive them for evil. It allows conservatives to think it isn't their ideology's fault the nation views them as critical thinking-free beings.

The rest of us mock them for being clowns which they are. They're also dangerous to democracy clowns as they continue to condition their followers deeper into the reality free zone.


That's what I like a coherent well laid out comment clearly stating exactly what. lmao


Glenn Beck and Billo makes a kook like Alex Jones sound sane.


What they said has merit, but the way they say it makes many wonder...
Beck is too much of a drama queen that tends to detract from his message. There is a lot of pent up anger and rage (rational and irrational) out there - just watch the ratings.


They are like parodies of bad dreams about Ted Baxter x infinity, on steroids, with bad boob jobs, all in a death spiral. The worst of the worst. I would imagine their ratings are not what they once were either; hence their desperation.



You truly are a simpleton.


It isa cynical play to their demographic, white males over 50. Neither one of these overpaid goofs give one shit about politics. They just want the niche audience.


General Electric does stand to gain, I admit. They just announced plans to build a new factory(in New York) for industrial-scale batteries, for marine and utility applications, in addition to their new Hybrid Locomotive. It is something they have been developing, with their Evolution Locomotive, since 2002, and getting ready to go into service. The batteries in utility applications can help store the intermittent Solar and Wind power. Although there is an interesting Solar Thermal concept in Spain that seems on the verge of solving that problem.


the video is gone,, whats FREEDOM OF SPEACH? BS TO THIS PROVOIDER,, Did Hitler return?
