Video:Glenn Beck Expounds More On Scott Levenson

Glenn is still incredulous of his confrontation with the “unctuous” Scott Levenson, yesterday:

This should serve as a warning to all future Scott Levenson interviewers: If you forcefully challenge Scotty’s unctuous assertions, he’ll say you’re afraid of black people, and fight like a girl!


I made the R.S. McCain’s sidebar news feed!

Welcome The Other McCain readers…!

You’ll find no naked lady google bombs, here, but last year, I did have……oh…nevermind….

The Truth Comes Out: Nancy Pelosi Knew about The Waterboarding



Remember her fervent claim a couple of weeks ago, that she was never informed that the waterboarding interrogation technique was actually being used?

She was….. I repeat WAS lying, just as we suspected.

ABC News has got the goods:

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed on the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” on terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah in September 2002, according to a report prepared by the Director of National Intelligence’s office and obtained by ABC News.

The report, submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee and other Capitol Hill officials Wednesday, appears to contradict Pelosi’s statement last month that she was never told about the use of waterboarding or other special interrogation tactics. Instead, she has said, she was told only that the Bush administration had legal opinions that would have supported the use of such techniques.

“Appears to contradict…” PUHleese!

She was lying through her teeth, just say it. These Dems in power right now think they can get away with anything.

The report details a Sept. 4, 2002 meeting between intelligence officials and Pelosi, then-House intelligence committee chairman Porter Goss, and two aides. At the time, Pelosi was the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee.

The meeting is described as a “Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of particular EITs that had been employed.”

She knew what was going on.

Lying to the American people….and not even to save her own hide, either. It’s worse than that.  The weasel was bending with the political winds  to smear the very people who helped to keep us safe for 7 years. How much lower can these people get? I guess we’ll be finding out.

Liberal Fascism On The March

The barring of free speech edition via the Volokh Conspiracy:

Federal Felony To Use Blogs, the Web, Etc. To Cause Substantial Emotional Distress Through “Severe, Repeated, and Hostile” Speech?

That’s what a House of Representatives bill, proposed by Rep. Linda T. Sanchez and 14 others, would do. Here’s the relevant text:

Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both….

[“Communication”] means the electronic transmission, between or among points specified by the user, of information of the user’s choosing, without change in the form or content of the information as sent and received; …

[“Electronic means”] means any equipment dependent on electrical power to access an information service, including email, instant messaging, blogs, websites, telephones, and text messages.

Volokh lists a just few of the different ways that this law could be applied, and it’s easy to see how politically inconvenient blogs and websites could be targeted. He thinks that such a vague, and unconstitutional law would be struck down by the Supreme Court, but what was Linda Sanchez even thinking?

Commenter Richard1: Why are you possibly taking this so seriously? 15 out of 435 sign on. It has no chance of passage, no chance of hearings. Every year stupid and unconstitutional bills are proposed.

Another Commenter may have the answer: It’s just the opening salvo of applying speech limitations on the internet.

It’s something to keep an eye on. Liberals are patient, and they tend to get what they want, eventually.
