Georgia Terrorism Suspect Allegedly Found Inspiration In Fox News Expert’s Novel

You may have read about four men arrested in Georgia Tuesday for what the New York Times described as a domestic terror plot involving guns, bombs and the toxin ricin, all aimed at killing federal and state officials and spreading terror. Yesterday (11/2/11), Fox News’ Jonathan Serrie reported on the case for America’s Newsroom and noted in his report that one of the defendants “allegedly cited the online novel, Absolved, which discusses small groups of citizens attacking U.S. officials. Apparently, this defendant… allegedly saying that these attacks would be based on events in that novel.” But what Serrie and host Martha MacCallum didn’t mention is that the author of Absolved is a Fox News expert.

Huckabee Jokingly Urges Election Dirty Tricks

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, former presidential candidate and now Fox News host, made a shocking joke during a recent speech in which he exhorted voters to break the law in support of an Ohio referendum scaling back public workers’ collective bargaining rights. Really. UPDATED.

Curtis Sliwa Offers His Solutions For “The Homies” Behind Flash Mobs: Beat Them Up

Loud-mouth, self-aggrandizing liar and founder of the Guardian Angel vigilante group Curtis Sliwa visited The O’Reilly Factor last night (6/28/11) for a discussion about violent teen flash mobs that have broken out in cities around the U.S. Instead of a real law enforcement or teen expert, guest host Laura Ingraham trotted out Sliwa, now a radio talk show host, and another radio host, Cooper Lawrence. At least Lawrence has a degree in psychology, though she might want to see a shrink, herself, to find out why she lavished praise on Sliwa's racially-tinged, vigilante grandstanding. As for Sliwa – his biggest credential seems to be his penchant for violent sound bites. That and the bright red “crime fighting” costume he has worn since he first became a vigilante.

The Beck Week That Was: The Long Goodbye

As of this writing Glenn Beck has only 4 more shows left on Fox “News.” Just in case his audience isn’t willing to pony up the cover charge to join his web-only GB[L]TV night club, he’s been using his last remaining hours on real tee vee to cram in as much information and conspiracy theories as humanly possible. While each show has had a nominal theme, it’s still been a pretty scattershot approach, which is also reflected in this exciting episode of The Beck Week That Was.

Glenn Beck Was For Economic Terrorism Before He Was Against It

As Glenn Beck’s ratings continue to tank, and with open talk that Fox “News” might not renew his contract this December, the Historian Emeritus of Beck U keeps soldiering on at his chalkboard. Beck continues to draw equations in order to find his Unified Conspiracy Theory—much like Albert Einstein spent the latter part of his life at chalkboards trying to find a Unified Field Theory—in order to link every evil actor in the world working together in concert to collapse the system and bring on the inevitable New World Order that will result. When the unrest began in the Middle East he thought he was almost there: Communists, Socialists, Marxists, The Muslim Brotherhood, The White House, Code Pink, etcetera, so forth and so on, are going to work in concert to bring chaos to the Middle East in order to drive a stake through the heart of everything Beck and good, decent Americans holds dear. However, there was still something missing—there were holes in Beck’s theory that required plugging before he could announce his Eureka moment. So this week he added a new wrinkle: Economic Terrorism. And, with no degrees of separation, he managed to make it a plot hatched by an evil cabal operating at the White House—even, GASP!, inside the Oval Office itself.
