Liz Cheney appeared on Hannity to discuss her new group, Keep America Safe, which she says will also address economic issues because there is a national security aspect to the amount of debt we’ve accrued because it’s weakened the dollar.
You’ll love the wittle prop he uses to drive his point home.
The example she cites for Soros’s supposed moderation? The Clinton Global Initiative:
A self-described “catalyst for action,” it hosts yearly Clinton Global Summits that bring together left-leaning thinkers and activists with wealthy businesspeople and politicians to meet and mingle and ruminate on the world’s problems. The summit’s goal is to have wealthy CGI attendees “partner” with the leaders of aid and development groups by making financial pledges to their programs. During its last three meetings (2005-07) CGI has announced 600 pledges of more than $10 billion.

It’s nice that she allows Senator Hatch to have a different opinion than hers, though.

I watched this yesterday, and thought it was worth sharing. The Obama administration’s ham-handed attempts to delegitimize Fox News is only one aspect of Obama’s totalitarian designs on the media. Glenn Beck is one of the few people out there connectiong the dots and sounding the alarm.
More on the Marxist led Free Press, (Discover the Networks profile, here):
I’ve been meaning to write a post about the administration’s recent attempts to Alinsky Fox News into obscurity, using Keith freakin’ Olberman and Media Matters talking points, but in the wake of the MSM’s deplorable smear campaign against Rush, CNN’s laughable fact-checking of SNL, etc, I swear to God, I’m too disgusted and offended to be coherent on this issue.
I’ve decided you’d be better served if I just offered some links, and videos.
I’ll start with this clip from Fox’s Special Report. Pay special heed to Charles Krauthammer starting at 3:53:
Mark Levin is pretty disgusted, too:
(DUH!) The question is…will it work? Was it even necessary?
I say, sic Orin Hatch on them.
Thank God for Jake Tapper.
Is this a new one? After the town halls this past summer, I’m not sure. But calling the police on a reporter because his questions “startled her’, would seem to be breaking new ground in the in the ever expanding realm of political weaseldom.
Weekly Standard reporter, John McCormack shares his story of his confrontation with Scozzafava after a GOP dinner in Lewis County:
…after the dinner, I asked Assemblywoman Scozzafava if she supports card check. “Yes, yes I do,” she replied.
At that point someone from her campaign placed himself between Scozzafava and me and told me I should direct all my inquires to the campaign’s spokesman. I nonetheless asked Scozzafava if her signing of the Americans for Tax Reform pledge not to vote to raise taxes means she would oppose any health care bill that raises taxes. “What kind of taxes?” she replied. Then another couple of gentlemen interposed themselves between Scozzafava and me as Scozzafava headed for the door.
I spotted Scozzafava later as she was walking to the parking lot, and asked her: ” Assemblywoman, do you believe that the health-care bill should exclude coverage for abortion?” She didn’t reply. I asked her twice more. Silence.
After she got into her car, I went to my car and fired up my laptop to report the evening’s events.
Minutes later a police car drove into the parking lot with its lights flashing. Officer Grolman informed me that she was called because “there was a little bit of an uncomfortable situation” and then took down my name, date of birth, and address.
“Maybe we do things a little differently here, but you know, persistence in that area, you scared the candidate a little bit,” Officer Grolman told me.
“[Scozzafava] got startled, that’s all,” Officer Grolman added. “It’s not like you’re in any trouble.”

It’s a great feeling to know you’re not alone in your disgust of the leftwing media… You’re not the only one who thinks they’re worse than useless. You’re not the only one who thinks they’re a scourge on the body politic. These videos from Saturdays tea parties, compiled by cprater help drive that notion home.
Okay, one more from Troy, Michigan, which I just saw at Ed Driscoll’s.
This one is notable because a Detroit NBC news crew actually showed up to cover the teaparty.
Also, the camerawoman didn’t much care for being videotaped by a tea party participant, and made her displeasure known by assaulting the camera with her nose.:
Did you see that guy’s sign?
“That’s okay NBC, we don’t listen to you either”.
Another good one:
