Now that Newt Gingrich has become the latest in a series of Republican frontrunners, he is getting the kind of scrutiny and attacks that have done in other frontrunners.

Why You Should Quit College Posted By Ben Shapiro URL to article: http://frontpagemag.com/2011/11/29/why-you-should-quit-college/ Young people spend their time in college getting high, getting drunk, and getting off. So why shouldn’t they major in it? This seems to be the philosophy of Yale University, where a doctoral candidate is leading a course titled “Dance Music […]
Deadly ‘Diversity’ Posted By Bruce Bawer

The neighborhood of Grønland in Oslo, Norway, is not terribly large. It’s on the east side of town, adjacent to central Oslo, and has traditionally been a place of working-class flats and unpretentious pubs. Ever since Norway began to be the destination of immigrants from the Muslim world, however, Grønland has been home to an increasing number of Muslim families and businesses. In recent years, furthermore, it has become an attractive residential area for young Norwegian singles and families, for many of whom part of the lure of living in this part of town was that they wanted to be part of a “multicultural” community. As a result of the influx of these these young people – including no small number of gays – a number of hip restaurants and cafes have sprung up in the area.
Of late, however, as the city’s Muslim population has boomed, Grønland has been undergoing a transition from a mixed neighborhood to an essentially Muslim one.
Congress: Establishment media are swooning over the unexpected departure of ultraliberal Barney Frank. But this “champion of the little guy” actually helped cause the mortgage disaster, then kept the system broken.
‘Congress will now be a little dumber,” was the kind of nonsense we heard from the mainstream liberal media after Frank, D-Mass., former chairman of the House Banking Committee, said no to running for re-election next year.
Formally reprimanded by a heavily Democratic House on a 408-to-18 vote in 1990 for ethics offenses regarding his financial relationship with a male prostitute, Frank has for decades been a fast-talking, acidic presence in House debates.
But he wasn’t smart enough to realize that the politically correct poisoning of mortgages would lead to a calamity rivaling the Great Depression. “I, like many others, did not see the crisis coming,” Frank said Monday.
He sure didn’t. Back in 2003, what did he say when the Bush administration proposed what the New York Times described as “the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago,” including a new agency to supervise Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

“And no amount of irresponsibility, petulance and obnoxious behavior should give us the impression that our opponent doesn’t want to win. His contempt for us is a weakness, but it’s also a sign of how fortified his position is. We are the ones with the uphill battle and we cannot afford to rest at the bottom of the hill before we have taken the high ground.”
It’s downright strange that at a time when the field of Republican candidates has narrowed down to a few bad choices and the left has finally fielded its own answer to the Tea Party movement, that some pundits on the right are still cheerfully pushing the meme that Obama is all but done.

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.10919/pub_detail.asp One should always be careful, when criticizing and making fun of others, to not be guilty of the same offense. We try to be very careful, with a name like Accuracy in Media. It can come back to bite you. That is unless you’re some hotshot left-wing “news” person on MSNBC. Then it doesn’t […]

“The Pakistani generals are not worth much as reliable allies, but they’re all we’ve got. Like all rented allies, they’re sometimes willing to help a little so long as the United States continues to supply them with weapons—just in case they get into a war of their own. There’s no morality among nations, as Newt the Historian knows well. Chipping at the margins of a threat is enough to keep any president too busy to Twitter. Only someone divorced from reality would expect more than that.”
Thomas Jefferson collected old books and French wines, Warren Harding collected poker buddies, and FDR collected stamps. Harry S Truman collected sheet music and played the piano.
