Steve | Editorials, Global Warming

I'm hoping someday, that in the light of true evidence, and not the twisted evidence that people like Al Gore parade around, the MSM will quit hyping global warming as the biggest threat to ever face mankind, especially considering that over the years they have waffled back and forth so much on whether we are headed for a deep freeze or are going to fry to death. However, until then, we can keep expecting articles like today's Dead Fish Wrapper editorial, Shrinking from the heat of global warming.

Steve | Iraq, Marie Cocco, Opinion, Washington Post

In it's continuing quest to publish as much liberal drivel as possible, the Fish Wrapper continues to publish as many liberal Bush haters as possible. Today's liberal blather is provided by Marie Cocco. In her column entitled Taking Stock of Lessons Learned (renamed to "Lessons to be learned from our blunder in Iraq" by the DFW), Ms. Cocco trots out all of the typical liberal talking points about the war.

The Iraq invasion was a political choice, not a necessity of national security. If we were befuddled, or scared out of our wits by the Bush administration's rhetoric about weapons of mass destruction and its false linkage of Iraq with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, our suspicions should have been aroused by White House hucksterism: ``From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August,'' White House chief of staff Andrew Card said in explaining why the president waited until the fall of 2002 -- on the eve of the midterm congressional elections -- to begin selling us the faulty Iraq product.

Steve | David Schorr, Louis Brandeis, National Public Radio, Opinion, Right to Privacy

When it comes to rights, leftists are always quick to invent them to further their selfish desires. In an opinion essay published in the Fish Wrapper entitled A tribute to Justice Louis Brandeis (and entitled "For privacy rights, thank Justice Brandeis" in the DFW), Daniel Schorr from NPR (or NLR, for National Leftist Radio, as I like to call it), pays tribute to the man who invented a right that doesn't exist:

If he is remembered for nothing else, he will be remembered for discovering a constitutional right to privacy, which became the underpinning of the right to an abortion.

Steve | 2006 Elections, Columnists, New York Times, Paul Krugman

Even though the Democrats won a majority of the elections this month and gained control of both houses of Congress, they still have to whine about voting irregularities that supposedly cost them races that they "should have" won. Front and center in this whining is Paul Krugman of that bastion of fair reporting, the New York Times.

His complaint in yesterday's pay-per-view column (published today in the Fish Wrapper)is about the race for Florida's 13th congressional district. It had previously been held by Katherine Harris, who had been Florida's Secretary of State during the 2000 elections (and who, according to Krugman, "infamously acted as a partisan Republican rather than a fair referee"). Harris chose to run for the Senate instead of the House this time, so the race was between Republican Vern Buchanan and Democrat Christine Jennings. Buchanan was certified the winner by 369 votes, and so, in true Democratic fashion, Jennings sued, asking the judge to overturn the victory, alleging there was a "pervasive malfunctioning" of touch-screen voting machines in the Nov. 7 election.

Steve | Editorials, Illegal Immigration

As is typical with most liberals, the Fish Wrapper editors continue to push the agenda of allowing illegal immigration without doing what is necessary to control it. In today's editorial, Immigration solution must focus on economy, the Fish Wrapper tried to come across is if they are proposing a "thoughful analysis" on immigration reform. Their problem is that they choose to ignore other relevant facts.

To corner immigration in the global economy is to control a huge strategic asset.

Steve | Abby Haight, Global Warming, Jules Boykoff, Living, Profiles

Is it a coincidence that whenever the Fish Wrapper profiles someone, it always seems to be a liberal? Today's profile in liberalism is entitled The activist-minded professor, and is about Jules Boykoff, a political science professor at Pacific University.

According to the article, Boykoff is quite the Renaissance man.

Boykoff, 36, is a political scientist. He is a poet and social activist with an unquenchable curiosity. He played soccer for the University of Portland and professionally, and cheers for the Tottenham Hotspurs. He and brother Max researched media treatment of global warming, helping form the basis for the Al Gore documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Steve | Alcee Hastings, Democrats, Front, John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, New York Times

Now that Nancy Pelosi has promised the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history", the burden is on her to follow through. However, in discussing this, the New York Times still manages to let their liberal bias shine through, and the Fish Wrapper is oh so happy to publish it.

In giving examples of politicians who have been caught up in corruption scandals, they give a few examples:

Steve | Associated Press, Steny Hoyer

In a standard AP puff piece run today in the Fish Wrapper, Steny Hoyer, the new House majority leader selected over Nancy Pelosi-backed John Murtha, is painted as a "moderate Democrat":

Hoyer, 67, has over the past quarter-century in the House become known for his fundraising, his work for fellow Democrats and for moderate political positions that have enabled him to get along with Republicans and liberal Democrats alike.

However, as documented on Newsbusters, once you look at his record, the "moderate" label just doesn't seem really appropriate.

Steve | The Edge

In Wednesday's version of "The Edge", a joke/comedy section on the front of the Living section, the Fish Wrapper published a list from The Right Was Right that, unfortunately, is funny because it's so true.

Now that the election is behind us, and the Democrats control both houses of Congress, there's no reason not to admit it: the Right was right about us all along. Here is our 25-point manifesto for the new Congress:

  1. Mandatory homosexuality
  2. Drug-filled condoms in schools
  3. Introduce the new Destruction of Marriage Act
Steve | Front, Illegal Immigration

Once again, it is time for the Fish Wrapper to defend the illegal immigrants instead of enforcing our immigration laws. A very one-side article discusses the story of Elvira Arellano and her son Saul, and their attempt to avoid deportation back to Mexico. As a refresher, Elvira entered the United States illegally after having been deported back to Mexico once. She was arrested in December, 2001, and convicted of using a fake Social Security number to get a job at O'Hare airport. She received a deportation order - after several extensions that allowed her to stay longer - and instead of obeying the order, ran to a church, and has been hiding there ever since.
