Sidestepping Wolf Blitzer’s question (again!) about whether Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell is unconstitutional, and saying that she and the President want Congress to end the law as soon as possible, White House Senior Adviser in Charge of Taking the Heat from Gays Valerie Jarrett said she shares Lt Dan Choi’s frustration over the pace of the repeal in Congress.

Like the whole of mainstream media, CNN stinks and they know it. They are aware of how their shows distort the political reality and divide the American public at a time when we desperately need unity. But they still can’t help themselves. Let’s just turn them all off.

Lou Dobbs employed undocumented immigrants at the same time he railed against them. Disgusting, but not surprising.

Those who observe American media, and observe what passes for Legacy Media’s “criticism” of our American media, have long been irritated by the Washington Post’s declaration that Howard Kurtz’s disclosure of his CNN role (host of “Reliable Sources” and media critic) satisfies WaPo readers that he has no conflict between his CNN role and his WaPo role, even when writing about CNN. Moved up the Versailles foodchain to Washington Bureau Chief (of the Daily Beast, but still….) Howie will retain his CNN Sunday hosting role.

The United States is clearly not at war with Yemen. Yemen is working to apprehend and bring to justice alleged international criminals on its territory, as the U.S. Department of Defense concedes (and apparently financially and operationally supports). And Yemen has now officially confirmed that it granted, but has since withdrawn, permission for selective U.S. bombing of its territory. In these circumstances, our government’s disproportionate targeting of Anwar Al-Awlaki for summary execution in Yemen, as publicly reported by multiple outlets, seems to clearly amount to an Executive attempt to “outlaw” Al-Awlaki – something that the U.S. President has no Constitutional authority or power to do.
