Second place looms large and it is quite an honorable — or maybe onerous — award on our top ten most left-biased working American journalists list. Amusingly our number two guy even graduated from a school that foretold his future work. From the bowels of New York’s exclusive Hackley School comes our number two most left-biased journo, Time Magazine’s Joe Klein.

Klein is another one of those far left writers that imagines himself to be unconventional in his politics when the truth is he is a left-winger all the way down the line without a scoshe of non-conventional thinking.

For instance, in his book, The Natural, of his politics Klein wrote, “… the conventions of journalism prevent me from fitting too neatly into one political niche (although as a columnist for the New Yorker and Newsweek my predilections are obvious).” Far from not “fitting too neatly” into the left’s “niche,” that niche fits him like a glove. For the better part of thirty years, Klein has been revealing his ill-fitting niche to the reading public and we couldn’t be more grateful for his niche-like, nichieness.

So let’s start by finding an example of Klein supposedly being nicheless, shall we? How about in 2007 when Klein attacked the left-wing blogosphere as being too vitriolic. Did that piece show that he was able to criticize his own? Did it show he isn’t just a knee-jerk leftist?

Unfortunately, a closer look at his piece proves wrong any notion that Klein could be even handed in criticism. After Klein scolded and finger pointed at the wild-eyed left-wing blogs that were at the time criticizing him, he ended up blaming it all on Bush and Cheney anyway. It was Bush’s fault, you see, because he and his side had started the mud slinging and name-calling and the left-wing blogs were just retuning the bile tit-for-tat.

Yes, Klein was actually contending that political mudslinging was invented by George W. Bush and the right only as late as the early 2000s. I guess he was asleep all during the 1980s when the political left was excoriating Ronald Reagan on a daily basis. For that matter, Klein must not know much history because the election of 1800 was a bit raucous, too!

That’s some niche he has there!

* But there’s a big difference here between the Democratic and Republican parties. In the Republican Party, the base is the right wing. In the Democratic Party, the base isn’t the left wing. The base is African-Americans, a lot of Hispanics, trade union people, and so on. You have a bunch of bloggers on the left, but I don’t think that they carry the same weight as the maniacs on the right do with the Republican Party.

* Stick to your day job, Mr. Klein. Better yet, just retire. But even if he leaves the field of journalism today, Joe Klein has secured for himself the dubious distinction of the number two slot on our most left-biased journalists list.

Congrats, Joe. If I can borrow a phrase, nobody messes with Joe, ya know?

There’s only one more spot to fill, so please check back tomorrow for left-biased journalist number one as our series comes to an end.

Oh, read on…

Washington, Jul 29 – Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after offering a resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives calling on Congress not to hold a lame duck session after Election Day for the purpose of passing hugely unpopular legislation like a national energy tax, enormous deficit spending bills, and the kickback to Big Labor known as “Card Check.”

“Americans are sick and tired of their elected leaders making backroom deals to ram through unpopular, 2000-page bills that no one has read,” said Chairman Price. “They are sick of out-of-touch politicians, and they are tired of being ignored. A number of Democrats, including members of their leadership, have recently expressed a desire to ignore the public will and use a lame duck session to pass liberal legislation Americans do not want. Today I gave my Democrat colleagues an opportunity to show they are finally ready to listen to the American people.

“Our system of government rests upon the consent of the governed, but it is quite clear that Democrats no longer have Americans’ consent. The public’s trust in this Congress has been repeatedly broken. Voting for a national energy tax and other items on the liberal wish list in a lame duck session would shatter it beyond repair. Republicans are fully prepared to do what is necessary to restore Americans’ trust in their elected representatives. We know it will be a long road, but it is one well worth traveling.”

Note: Instead of taking a clear stand on this issue, House Democrats chose to delay a vote on the Price resolution. The text of the resolution is available here.

Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) offered a privileged resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives stating that Congress not circumvent the will of the American people by ramming through unpopular measures during a lame duck session.

Congressman Tom Price is Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC).

YIPEE TWO count em' TWO for the price of one...the list is lonnng

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has chosen to go through an ethics trial, like the one lined up for New York Rep. Charles Rangel, rather than accepting charges made by an ethics subcommittee, a source familiar with the process tells POLITICO.

The back-to-back trials of a pair of black lawmakers represent an unprecedented use of an ethics adjudication system that has rarely been used by House members accused of breaking House rules.

Waters’ case revolves around allegations that she improperly intervened with federal regulators to help a bank that her husband owned stock in and on whose board he once served.

“Congresswoman Waters has chosen to go through an adjudicatory subcommittee hearing, rather than accept any of the counts from the investigative subcommittee,” the source told POLITICO.

In layman’s tems, that means she’s going to trial.

The Waters case also presents a test of the Office of Congressional Ethics, an independent body that takes complaints from the public and chooses which ones to forward to the House ethics committee.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus have complained that the OCE has unfairly and disproportionately targeted them, and many have signed onto a legislative effort to de-fang the office.

Waters’ case was referred to the ethics committee by OCE.

* A PF find*

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled to block several provisions of the law that some consider controversial (even though these mimic federal law). However, the judge has allowed the remainder of the law to move forward as planned while the case is being litigated. This includes allowing the state of Arizona to stop rogue state officials from implementing “sanctuary city” policies, and allowing the state to pursue civil lawsuits over sanctuary cities. In addition, Arizona will still be permitted to implement the portion of the law that makes it a crime to pick up day laborers, an issue that law enforcement and officials say has become a major problem in the state.

While yesterday’s ruling is being praised by opponents of the law, it won’t stop their protests, it will prolong them, according to Liberty Chick of Big Government For years. In fact, hordes of angry protesters are descended upon the state first thing Thursday morning. And the propaganda machine on the left continues to run at full speed, cranking out intentionally misleading statements, disinformation, and outright lies. We’ve watched the boycotts. We’ve watched as the protests have erupted into hate events, directed not from the right against illegal immigrants as the left portrays them, but from the left and illegal immigrants against peaceful people on the right (and many in the center!).

SEIU-ULTCW homecare worker Rob Robbins explains why he’s traveled to Arizona on July 29th to march in support of Immigration Reform

Minuteman and Tea Party protest of May Day Illegal Immigrants in San Francisco, May 1, 2010

For the first time, a Minuteman group, a Tea Party group, and a 912 group joined together to stand up against illegal immigration in America! The Golden Gate Minutemen, the Pleasanton/NorCal Tea Party and the SF Bay 912 groups combined together to protest the mostly illegal May Day immigrant labor marchers in San Francisco, May 1st, 2010.

During my past four years as a Minuteman in the SF Bay Area I’ve been to many protest. But this one was by far the most vile display of “in your face” group of “immigrants” that I’ve ever seen.

Ignited by the recent passage of Arizona’s immigration law, fueled by many Democratic politicians, left wing, communist and socialist groups, and spurred on by the liberal media, these marchers took aim at us tax paying American Citizens.

The large group of mostly foreign nationals who are living illegally in the United States, were emboldened by their large numbers, and their arrogance was obvious. They carried signs with swastikas on them, communist flags, and I’ve never seen so many signs, shirts and hats with their hero “Che Guevara”, the racist Cuban revolutionary and self appointed executioner during the Cuban revolution. The number of Mexican and country flags easily outnumbered American flags. And most of the literature being distributed or sold at their event, was Socialist and Communist in nature.

They chanted “racist go home” as they advanced to the barricades that the police placed there to protect us from harm. We were forty and they were two thousand. Joined by many radical left Americans (what else would you expect to find in San Francisco these days), it was obvious to us that this crowd despised us. They had “pre-judged” us as racist, neo-nazis , white supremacist and anti immigrant, just because we want the United States borders secured and illegal immigration stopped. Not only was this far from true, but to me, the true racism was directed at us by them.

We stayed two and half hours, enduring there shouts, slurs, middle finger gestures and dirty looks, in a country that is ours, and in a state that we pay taxes to. All so many of these people can eat, get an education, get medical care, and pay rent – on our dime. And San Francisco welcomes illegal aliens with open arms, having declared itself a “Sanctuary City” for these foreign nationals in 1989.

The Police escorted us to the parking lot, or surely this crowd of “harmless people”, “here just to make a living and feed their families”, surely would have attacked us. Only in America could non citizens be placed ahead of Citizens who were born here, lead good honest lives, and pay taxes to keep America safe and secure.

I’m disgusted at what the United States of America has become over the past 30 years.

Meanwhile, as the left continues their manufactured barrage of anger at Andrew Breitbart for supposedly taking things out of context in the Shirley Sherrod story, they fabricate their own version of context propaganda on video in examples like this one from the SEIU.

WHO is HATING on WHO?! These asshats are liars !

SEIU | July 27, 2010

On July 28, 2010, a US District Court Judge in Arizona blocked key parts of Arizona’s controversial anti-immigrant law SB1070 from taking effect on July 29th.

This means that while the law will still take effect on July 29th, police will NOT be able to use racial profiling to inquire into a person’s immigration status.

But SB1070 doesn’t stop with racial profiling. Further militarizing the border with land mines and machine guns, and shutting off utilities are all policy “solutions” that extreme politicians are considering.

If we don’t stand up, these types of extreme laws may come to your state.

Watch this video to see the type of America that Republicans want to create for us.

~ Freakin’ SEIU. Don’t buy into Patriots. They are attempting to incite! The NBPP is trying to incite! The NAACP is trying to get us to respond negatively! DO NOT BITE! THIS is precisely so they can make US look bad. Don’t let them!

This is disgusting. –Liberty Chick

~This is the “Goal” Map.

About 3,500 acres of southern Arizona have been closed off to U.S. citizens due to increased violence at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The closed off area includes part of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge that stretches along the U.S.-Mexico border. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Fox News that violence against law enforcement officers and U.S. citizens has increased in the past four months, forcing officers on an 80 mile stretch of Arizona land north of the Mexico border off-limits to Americans.

Friends, it is Aztlan-Reconquista.

The refuge had been adversely affected by the increase in drug smugglers, illegal activity and surveillance, which made it dangerous for Americans to visit. “The situation in this zone has reached a point where continued public use of the area is not prudent,” said refuge manager Mitch Ellis. “It’s literally out of control, said Babeu. “We stood with Senator McCain and literally demanded support for 3,000 soldiers to be deployed to Arizona to get this under control and finally secure our border with Mexico.“

~ Fox News–

“ We need action. It’s shameful that we, as the most powerful nation on Earth, … can’t even secure our own border and protect our own families

Bit by bit our Nation soil is being taken by the butchers of the Mexican Drug Cartel Warlords and La Raza!

Has our once Superpower Nation gone mad?!! What is it going to take?!! Will it take a Terrorist group that will be help by the butchers of the Mexican Drug Cartel to sneak them in with WMD?!! And then when they wreak havoc on our nation our stupid Politically Correct Government might try to secure or borders and enforce our Immigration Laws?!! Is that what it’s going to take! A terrible terrorist attack(s) on our soil with tens of thousand of innocent people DEAD?!!

Army Div I have served: 2 Inf Div, 7 Lt Inf Div, 9 Mot Div, 40 NG Div, & 101 ABN

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning that illegal aliens may have gained access to a U.S. Army installation in Arizona that also serves as the nation’s largest military intelligence-training center.

“I have deep concerns that people who come into our country illegally have managed to gain access onto an active U.S. military installation,” Arpaio said in a statement today. “This cause for concern goes well beyond the argument that people are only committing the crime of wanting to work in this country.”

Arpaio’s detectives raided Valley View Building Services in central Phoenix today, searching for 25 people suspected of identity theft and fraud.

The company employs 100 people in three states and is contracted to clean newly constructed buildings at Fort Huachuca, an Army post located only 15 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border. At least one of the suspects had worked on the military installation.

The deputies took five women into custody today. Four are suspected illegal aliens arrested for identity theft and fraud. One is a U.S. citizen wanted with an outstanding warrant.

“When we went in there, one of the ladies was hiding her Mexican ID in an enchilada, trying to conceal the identification,” Arpaio said.

He said authorities are still searching for other illegal aliens who may be working for the company.

“We did serve another search warrant on the residence of the owner and, going through the papers, we’re going to determine which work sites that the others may be working at,” he said.

Arpaio told KTVK-3 TV, “One thing I want to find out is how many more illegals have been hired [to work at] Fort Huachuca. That’s a high-intelligence installation. I don’t think people should go on that installation to work if they’re in this country illegally.”

Valley View Building Services released a statement on the arrests today.

“In May of 2010 a manager for Valley View Building Services was detained on the Fort Huachuca military base for a baseless charge made by a disgruntled employee,” explained Joel Votaw, owner of the company. “This charge has since been dropped. During that investigation, it came to light that he was working in the United States illegally, even though he presented a valid Arizona drivers license and social security card. He was allowed on base (entering through the main gate and having to present his ID each time) during the entire duration of this 3-month-long project.”

Votaw said his company fired the manager immediately and that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement began a company-wide investigation into Valley View’s hiring practices. He said today’s raid was for ID theft issues and not due to violation of the employer-sanction law.

Most of the company’s workforce is Hispanic, according to news reports. Votaw said he has always verified identification of its employees through E-Verify, strictly complying with local, state and federal rules.

The Tucson Weekly reported one rancher just west of Fort Huachuca answered his door in 2004 when a female illegal alien asked to use his phone.

According to the report, the call was to Libya.

As WND recently reported, thousands of illegal aliens apprehended along the 2,000-mile border stretching through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas aren’t even from Mexico. Many are citizens of countries that are known sponsors of terrorism, including Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Syria and Iran.

Arpaio’s crime sweep took place just before a federal judge blocked some of the toughest provisions in Arizona’s illegal-immigration law, S.B. 1070.
