Gateway Pundit Blog Is Moving

October 18, 2009


After several years of blogging I am finally leaving my blogspot location.
Google has made several significant updates over the years. It is a great user friendly software. For those of you who want to start a blog I would definitely recommend the blogspot experience.

I am moving this blog over to First Things website today. Some of you may recognize the website. The Anchoress has been blogging at First Things for over a year now.

So there may be some changes going on during the day. I am not sure how much downtime there will be during the transition. Fortunately, I will be flying back to St. Louis so hopefully the transition will have taken place before I get back home.

Comments will move from Haloscan to WordPress but they will still be open at the new location so you will not need to register for now. Anyone will be able to comment as long as they provide a name and email address.

***How long will the change take? ***
On Sunday, we’ll backup the blogspot site one more time and upload the latest entries to the new location at First Things. Once that is complete the change should be automatic. You shouldn’t notice any differences at all—- other than the new look and location of the blog.

The blogger archives may take some time to transfer over. I have 15,000 previous posts that need to be moved. See you at the new site and thank you for your support and patience.

John Ziegler KICKED OUT of Western CPAC– Cops Called (Photo–Video Interview)

October 17, 2009

Author, broadcaster and filmmaker (Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted) John Ziegler was kicked out of the Western Conservative Political Action Conference this afternoon after his interview with David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union. John had scheduled an interview with David Keene and all was going well until John asked David about this report from July.

According to HotAir the American Conservative Union attempted to get Federal Express to pay millions of dollars to engage the ACU on their behalf over a political fight with UPS on legislation under consideration on Capitol Hill. The Politico also reported on this controversy… David got upset with John’s question and threatened to clobber him. The whole thing was captured on tape.

In this video John tells me about the interview and confrontation:

After the interview and some drama in the hallway, Western CPAC officials told John Ziegler he was kicked out.
After lunch the local police were called and escorted John Ziegler out of the parking lot. But first there was a major confrontation in the banquet tent at the Radisson Hotel.

Rachel Alexander posted photos on her Facebook page. Here’s one–

UPDATE: I spoke with John Ziegler tonight and he told me that video from the interview and the episode in the tent will be posted on YouTube tonight or tomorrow.

Western CPAC Sat. AM– Rep Rohrabacher Discusses Obama’s Marxist Background (Video)

October 17, 2009

I am attending the Western CPAC Conference next weekend in Newport Beach, California.

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Ralph Reed Jr. and David Keene the chairman of the National CPAC and American Conservative Union as well as second vice president for the National Rifle Association are a few of the speakers at this year’s conference.

Here is the agenda for Saturday.

Author, broadcaster and filmmaker (Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted) John Ziegler, Ed Morrissey of HotAir and Dr. Melissa Clouthier are attending the conference this weekend.
Here is a look at Western CPAC’s blog row.

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, (CA-46), spoke on a panel this morning at Western CPAC. The panelists discussed the anti-American and radical policies of the current administration.
Later Rohrabacher talked more about Obama’s Marxist background and suggests that Republicans concentrate more on his policies and less on impeachment efforts.

Mao-Praising White House Official Dunn to Glenn Beck: "I Praised Mother Teresa, Too"

October 17, 2009

Earlier this week Glenn Beck reported on the Mao Tse-Tung-praising White House Communications Director Anita Dunn.
Dunn praised the mass murdering Mao as her favorite philosopher:

Today Dunn responded to Beck in an email to The New York Times:

In an e-mail message, Ms. Dunn said, “My source for the Mao quote was actually the late Lee Atwater, either in an article or bio I read after the 1988 election. Now that I’ve revealed this I hope I don’t get Keith Olbermann angry with me. Let it be noted that I also quoted Mother Teresa, but no one is accusing me of being a saint!”

The speech she gave was a high school commencement address. Ms. Dunn says that the line about Mao and Mother Teresa was intended to be ironic – neither was a political philosopher – and that she used it simply to illustrate a larger point about the importance of challenging the conventional wisdom.

It’s no surprise that Mr. Beck singled out Ms. Dunn. She has been on the forefront of White House pushback against Fox News.

Of course, Dunn’s delayed response is ridiculous.
Her speech to high school students and their response showed she was serious about her praise for the Former mass-murdering Chinese communist dictator. Dunn went into some detail about why she so admired Mao but said next to nothing about Mother Teresa.

The Berman Post has more on Dunn’s ridiculous response.

Disaster of the Day– Charting the Obama Destruction

October 17, 2009


The Washington Post reported: The federal budget deficit soared to a record $1.4 trillion in the fiscal year that ended in September, a chasm of red ink unequaled in the postwar era that threatens to complicate the most ambitious goals of the Obama administration, including plans for fresh spending to create jobs and spur economic recovery.

Doug Ross has more on the disaster.

UPDATE: 2006 Flashback: The 2001 George W. Bush taxcuts increased real annual GDP growth rate from 0.3 percent in 2001 to 2.5 percent in 2002. In the third quarter of 2003, GDP grew at a 7.2 percent annual rate. 1.4 million jobs were created in the nine months after August 2003.

Ralph Reed Jr. at Western CPAC: "Americans Voted for Hope & Change But They Didn’t Vote For This" (Video)

October 17, 2009

“Americans voted for hope and change but they didn’t vote for this… To stop government health care we’re going to have to do the same thing we did with the town halls in August and the tea parties in April. We’re going to have to overwhelm Capital Hill with phone calls, messages and visits.”

Faith and Freedom Foundation
Western CPAC
October 16, 2009

Conservative American political activist and icon Ralph Reed Jr. spoke at the Western CPAC Convention in Newport Beach, California.
After his speech Ralph spoke with me about his new conservative foundation, the future of the Republican Party and how next year is already shaping up to be a great year for conservatives.

The Faith and Freedom family of organizations brings people of faith and conservatives into the marketplace of ideas, policy and activism.

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian values and principles and on those values and principles has become the most prosperous and free country in history.

The Faith and Freedom family of organizations is made up of three, related, but independent parts;Faith and Freedom Network, Faith and Freedom PAC and Faith and Freedom Foundation.

Ed Morrissey at HotAir has more video of Ralph Reed Jr. at WCPAC.

Kenyan Historian: It’s Odd that Kenyan Luo Tribe Member (Obama) Elected President in US Before Kenya (Audio)

October 17, 2009

We already knew that Barack Obama’s brother Malik was a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argued that the black man must “liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.”

Now there’s this:
Audio found (Here) of speaker in Kenya on the election of Kenyan (Obama) being elected in the US as President. Starting around the 2:00 minute marker, the speaker discusses ethnicity problems towards the Luo tribe in Kenya. Then quotes Senator Obama as saying that “The prospect that the US would elect a Luo president before Kenya does.”

The file is from:
Olara Otunnu (Harvard Law, 1978) relating the remark of Kenyan historian Ali Mazrui on the oddity that a member of Kenya’s Luo tribe (Barack Obama, a Kenyan citizen and Luo tribe member from birth) may become president of the United States before a Luo tribe member becomes president of Kenya. “Town Hall Forum: An Examination of Race, Age, Gender & Religion in the 2008 Election,” Harvard Law School Reunions, Oct. 25, 2008, 9:15 a.m. (Austin Hall, 1st Floor, West), at 60:17 mark.

Source of Limbaugh Smears is Far Left Firm

October 17, 2009

American Thinker has an article today discussing the source of the Limbaugh smears.
This was originally posted Mark Steyn from a reader:

“The quotes were added by a user with the IP address of 69.64.213.146. This address has been used mostly to make changes to the article about Rush, but also Karl Rove, Sean Hannity,.. James Dobson and Sara Palin from 2005 until earlier this year.

“While others have noted this in various forums, no one seems to have made the connection that this IP address is used as a gateway by the law firm Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP (see here, for example) that all users from that IP address come from the pbwt.com domain.)”

The law firm has a history of supporting several far left causes and donated big to the Obama campaign.

Plus– Rush responded to the state-run media’s smear machine today in the Wall Street Journal, via Instapundit:

Numerous sportswriters, CNN, MSNBC, among others, falsely attributed to me statements I had never made. Their sources, as best I can tell, were Wikipedia and each other. But the Wikipedia post was based on a fabrication printed in a book that also lacked any citation to an actual source.

I never said I supported slavery and I never praised James Earl Ray. How sick would that be? Just as sick as those who would use such outrageous slanders against me or anyone else who never even thought such things. Mr. Wilbon refuses to take responsibility for his poison pen, writing instead that he will take my word that I did not make these statements; others, like Rick Sanchez of CNN, essentially used the same sleight-of-hand.
