Betrayal: Greedy Obama Alums Get Paid to Trash Unions

The people. United. Are bound to be defeated. By liberal sellouts.

When President Obama and his team of geniuses came to Washington, they promised hope and change. They were devoted liberals, determined to stamp out the influence of corporations and “special interests,” and tireless advocates for working Americans. That was then.

Animal Cruelty: Obama Donor Pimps Lassie on Grueling Publicity Tour

DreamWorks CEO and major Obama donor Jeffrey Katzenberg is forcing Lassie, the beloved American collie, to endure a grueling publicity tour in an effort to turn a profit for his struggling movie studio. DreamWorks acquired the rights to the storied franchise in 2012, and Katzenberg is determined to turn Lassie into a “merchandizing star” in order to milk the innocent pooch for all she’s worth. According to the New York Times:

Fareed Zakaria Busted Again For Plagiarism

Cheaters gonna cheat?

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria has been busted for plagiarism again, this time by the same anonymous Twitter users who took down BuzzFeed’s Benny Johnson.

A new website, Our Bad Media, has posted twelve instances of plagiarism in Zakaria’s writing that were published prior to his 2012 bust for plagiarism, which prompted public apologies and internal “reviews” by TIME, CNN, and the Washington Post. The new revelations suggest those reviews were less than rigorous.

Some of the examples are pretty damning:

Every Self-Respecting Human Being Should Hope Sean Eldridge Is Humiliated in November

Entitled carpetbagger attempts to relate to commoners in new TV ads

If Sean Eldridge didn’t exist, conservatives would have to invent him. He is a self-parody of everything self-respecting human beings find obnoxious about politicians. He is fabulously wealthy, thanks to his decision to marry Mark Zuckerberg’s college roommate, Chris Hughes. The couple owns a pair of $2,500 nautical binoculars, which they presumably use to gaze down on commoners from their trendy loft in SoHo. Eldridge (i.e., Hughes) is the largest donor to his own campaign.

Sean Eldridge is a carbetbagging feudal lord who has spent the last several years chain-buying mansions in New York’s Hudson River Valley in an effort to find a Congressional district that might elect him, and establishing a modern day fiefdom as a means to buy loyalty and votes with his husband’s money. He is more entitled and self-important than Sandra Fluke, who at least had the humility to initiate her political ambitions at the state level. He won’t even commit to stay in his current district (NY-19) if he loses.

Yes, Hillary Clinton Has a Mitt Romney Problem

But saying it like that is a bit unfair to Romney

New York Times reporter turned New York magazine blogger Annie Lowrey thinks people should shut up already about Hillary Clinton’s insatiable appetite for money and the sense of enjoyment and entitlement she presumably gets every time she disembarks a Gulfstream jet on the way to her presidential suite near some publicly funded university that’s paying her five times the median income to give a one-hour speech to a room full of rich people.

Hillary Clinton and the Beclowning of the American Left

If Hillary Clinton wants the Democratic nomination in 2016 (and why wouldn’t she, given that basically everything she’s ever done since roughly 1975, when she agreed to defend a child rapist as a “favor” for an Arkansas prosecutor, has been calculated to maximize her political power and/or personal fortune?) it would seem to be hers for the taking.

No matter what. There is not a damn thing committed liberals—the ones whose primary consideration for choosing a president is something other than “That would be really cool because she’s a woman”—can do about it. Is there?

The Clinton Empire Grows Larger by the Day

Free Beacon reader David Brock assembles massive political attack squad
That Hillary's so hot right now.

Not unlike the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Clinton Political Empire (CPE) is expanding and radicalizing, Politico’s Ken Vogel reports.

In what was described as “a major power play,” Clinton minion and loyal Free Beacon reader David Brock is taking over as head of the allegedly nonpartisan (but actually left-wing) watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Brock was elected chairman of the group last week “after laying out a multifaceted expansion intended to turn the group into a more muscular—and likely partisan—attack dog,” Vogel writes.

Aging Columnist Lashes Out at Free Beacon

Modo's future?

Another aging feminist has attacked the Washington Free Beacon in a column published in a major publication, the Free Beacon has learned.

On Tuesday, New York Times columnist and amateur pothead Maureen Dowd lashed out at the anti-Clinton website for its “nasty cracks” about Hillary Clinton’s advanced age. (Context: Dowd, 62, is four years younger than Clinton.)
