Did Rep. Joe Garcia say "We Proved That Communism Works"? - 05/21/14

... Spokeswoman It's perfectly expected that the Daily Caller ( peekURL.com/zKcg2M7 by Brendan Bordelon) and Gateway Pundit ( peekURL.com/zR8v92s ) would be unclear on the basics of English, but one might expect the NRCC to be slightly above the fray. The video was initiated by America Rising, an oppo research group started by Matt Rhoades (Mitt Romney campaign manager) and RNC operatives Tim Miller...

"The Kronies": slick libertarian propaganda linked to Koch, and who doesn't reveal that - 01/24/14

... thoughts. * Next: Sean Medlock of Daily Caller (aka "Jim Treacher"). He writes in part ( peekURL.com/zWfxMsf ): Somebody put a lot of time, effort, and money into this piece of sociopolitical satire. Is it too early to blame the Koch Brothers? Just kidding, it’s never too early to blame the Koch Brothers. Which is better: him playing that for laughs, or if he'd actually done the work to find out...

Conservatives lack competence to stop the "Knockout Game" - 11/21/13

... [1] by Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller: And yet [the victim of one assault] still holds the kind of liberal guilt that convinces her, against all evidence to the contrary, that she is infinitely more privileged than the vicious teenagers who inexplicably assaulted her in an act of pure evil. She still cannot say something along the lines of, "Put these kids in jail and throw away the key...

Sean Medlock and Jeff Poor don't want you to see this (Daily Caller, Jim Treacher) - 10/02/13

You might not expect the Daily Caller to delete a comment on a thread taking Popular Science to task for shutting off comments, yet that's exactly what they did [1]. On Sep. 25, Sean Medlock (the real name of "Jim Treacher") posted "Popular Science shuts off comments, so take your climate denial somewhere else" [2]. It includes such nuggets in support of open debate as "After all, what’s less...

Conservative bloggers who support amnesty (Rubio; Hot Air, Morrissey, Johnsen, Loesch, Moran, Mataconis...) - 01/21/13

... @SooperMexican. * Matt Lewis at the Daily Caller ( @mattklewis; peekURL.com/z4y7Hrt ): If Rubio were to pull this off, he would have a major accomplishment under his belt. It would be a “legacy” issue that might serve as a springboard to the White House... The hope is that Rubio’s common sense approach to what he views as a humanitarian crisis wins converts on both sides. If there was ever a...

An example of rightwing blogger incompetence (Tim Scott as a token) - 12/19/12

... Medlock (aka Jim Treacher) of the Daily Caller points out that one's skin color needn't determine one's ideology, but basically just whines ( peekURL.com/z76QDXr ) * Sean Higgins of the Washington Examiner does much the same, ending with a complaint about the "success of propaganda efforts like Reed's" but with no ideas about how to make such efforts less successful ( peekURL.com/zN2ECcR ) * The...

ACHIEVE Act draft: GOP's version of anti-American DREAM Act immigration amnesty - 11/16/12

Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller has obtained a draft of the "ACHIEVE Act", an immigration amnesty program for younger illegal aliens ( peekURL.com/znPTmcX ). It's the GOP own anti-American version of the anti-American DREAM Act: Essentially, the proposal involves several tiers: W-1 visa status would allow an immigrant to attend college or serve in the military (they have six years to get a degree...

Fiscal conservatives side with America-denouncing billionaire (Cato, Dan Mitchell, Heritage, Brownfield, Sean Medlock, Daily Caller, HotAir) - 05/11/12

... base, see the comments on the Daily Caller story (dailycaller . com/2012/05/11/ facebook-co-founder-renounces-us-citizenship-escaping-tax-burden). While a few don't look kindly on Saverin, others cheer him on (each line is from a comment, followed by the username; bear in mind that DailyCaller seems to be home to many sockpuppets): * Why would you choose to live in a country that is going to tax...

"Mitt Romney, anti-gay bully" or "How Obama will be reelected" - 05/10/12

Earlier today, the Washington Post published allegations that Mitt Romney was a bully back in prep school (link). I didn't read the story, but that's not what this post is about. Instead, this is a meta post: the WaPo's story is yet another example of how the establishment media is going to help Barack Obama be reelected. The media will publish or broadcast story after story just like the current...

Daily Caller series on Media Matters: reporters they feed information; coordination with White House? - 02/12/12

The Daily Caller has released the first in a series of reports [1] on Media Matters for America ("MMFA") based on internal memos, statements from former staffers, and other interviews. Notes follow, first an excerpt: ...[a former staffer says] "We were pretty much writing (MSNBC's) prime time... But then virtually all the mainstream media was using our stuff." (an internal memo about their...

Rightwing's muted response to Brown signing unpopular, anti-American immigration law - 10/09/11

... sections and Moe Lane's diary) * Daily Caller (checked: front page, US, and Politics sections) * Pajamas Media (checked: front page) * HotAir * Patterico * Just One Minute * Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, Big Journalism (which doesn't even have an immigration category!), breitbart.tv or breitbart.com (checked: front pages) * Powerline * Dan Riehl's site (note: he did tweet the news about the...

Tea Party helps me show Teapartiers are vile idiots, Part 1 of ? - 05/23/11

... 2011, Mary Katharine Ham of the Daily Caller posted "The New Tone is Finally Here" (link). I left a reply pointing out a fact: after leaving thousands of comments all round the web since 2002, on average the dumbest, most vile replies came from teapartiers. Teapartiers responded by proving my point: lying about me, smearing, and failing to do any sort of research. And they did all that despite...

A list of "conservative" bloggers who are actually Communist agents of George Soros - 04/18/11

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's with a heavy heart that I bring you today's post. I didn't want to have to write this post, and I didn't want to have to think about what I'm going to reveal. However, someone has to be looking out for the United States when she's under attack by forces who will do anything - and say anything - to bring her down. I'm sorry, I choked up a bit there. But, I will persevere...

The Teaparty-ification of NPR (James O'Keefe, cheap stunts, distraction) - 03/09/11

... O'Keefe (and published at the Daily Caller). What O'Keefe, the Young Republican types, and supposedly grown-up Republican leaders all have in common is that none of them are capable of engaging someone face-to-face and trying to present a valid counter-argument. The question authority plan is beyond them, thus the cheap stunts. 5. The teaparty definition of conservatism is narrow and generally...

Jonathan Strong gets facts wrong about Obama certificate and "Birthers" - 02/16/11

Jonathan Strong of the Daily Caller offers "Earth to birthers: the facts about Obama’s birth certificate" (link). A supposed reporter offering "facts" about the Obama citizenship issue designed to put that issue to rest and finally quell the concerns of the great unwashed is a certain guarantee that they'll get their facts wrong, and Strong is no different. 1. Strong claims that "[t]he evidence...

Mitch Daniels' incredibly ironic CPAC speech (no immigration, but invasion) - 02/11/11

... as Mary Katharine Ham of the Daily Caller (full text here). The speech concentrated on (no big surprise) spending rather than issues that are actually more important and more fundamental such as immigration. The speech didn't mention immigration at all. But it did include this incredibly ironic bit: If a foreign power advanced an army to the border of our land, everyone in this room would drop...

Documents reveal ACLU's Stalin-friendly past (Soviet Union, Communism) - 01/04/11

Author Paul Kengor has uncovered several documents in the Soviet archives showing that, in the 1930s, the American Civil Liberties Union was not at all unfriendly towards Stalin. From [1]: Kengor found a May 23, 1931 letter in the archives signed by ACLU founder Roger Baldwin, written on ACLU stationery, to then American Communist Party Chairman William Z. Foster asking him to help ACLU Chairman...

Tea Party "Patriots" mostly silent about anti-American DREAM Act (and rightwing bloggers too) - 12/07/10

... others listed in this post. * The Daily Caller had some news-only reports about the bill before the vote, but no calls to action. And, in two of those reports Chris Moody made misleading claims about the bill (see my comment: dailycaller.com/2010/12/09/ senate-again-puts-off-dream-act-vote that post was followed by a similar one). * In the seven days before the vote, neither Patterico nor his...
