**SHOCK** Breitbart News Journalist/Activists Revealed to Be Journalists, Activists

On Thursday, Mother Jones broke the massive scoop that Breitbart News participates in both journalism and conservative activism, reporting that reporters from this publication attended a conservative coalition meeting dubbed Groundswell. This stunning revelation was supported by the late Andrew Breitbart, who noted in his book, Righteous Indignation, that the goal of his site was “to knock down the false edifice that is mainstream media, that is built upon the false proposition of 'objective' journalism and the grotesque anti-American proposition of political correctness.” Jul 25, 2013 7:46 PM PT

Obama on Economy: Sail With Me to 'Ocean of Tomorrows'!

Speaking on Wednesday at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, President Obama laid out his plan for the failing economy. After his hour-long mashup of old Keynesian bromides, leftist platitudes, authoritarian braggadocio, and demonization of political opponents, he concluded with this glittery line, paraphrasing writer Carl Sandburg: "America, we have made it through the worst of yesterday’s winds. And if we find the courage to keep moving forward; if we set our eyes on the horizon, we too will find an ocean of tomorrows, a sky of tomorrows – for America’s people, and for this great country that we love."

CA Set to Release 10K Moderate to High-Risk Inmates

California is all set to release up to 9,600 more prison inmates into society, most of them moderate-to-high-risk criminals, under the terms of a 2008 Supreme Court ruling suggesting that overcrowding was violating inmates’ Constitutional rights. The state of California has been forced to release inmates until it reaches 137% of capacity, even though Governor Jerry Brown has stated in the past that the state needs no new prisons. In January, Brown explained, “I don't think that's smart, and I don't think the law requires it, and moreover, management of a prison is quintessentially an executive function.” Jul 24, 2013 9:16 AM PT

Former Obama Car Czar: Bail Out Detroit

President Obama’s former car czar, Steven Rattner, now says that federal taxpayers should bail out the entire city of Detroit. In a Friday op-ed for the New York Times, Rattner writes, “neither the state nor the federal government has evinced any inclination to provide meaningful financial assistance. That’s a mistake. No one likes bailouts or the prospect of rewarding Detroit’s historic fiscal mismanagement. But apart from voting in elections, the 700,000 remaining residents of the Motor City are no more responsible for Detroit’s problems than were the victims of Hurricane Sandy for theirs, and eventually Congress decided to help them.” Jul 22, 2013 12:11 PM PT

Obama: If Trayvon Was White, Outcome 'Might Have Been Different'

Speaking at the White House on Friday, President Obama strongly implied that George Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin due to Martin’s race, despite the utter lack of evidence that Zimmerman did so. In fact, an FBI investigation into Zimmerman turned up no evidence of racial bias, and the Department of Justice has been utterly unsuccessful in providing evidence of any racially-based federal crime committed by Zimmerman.
