Media Bistro has more information about the new series:

Fox News Channel will debut a new program called “The Five” airing in Glenn Beck‘s soon-to-be vacated timeslot beginning Monday, July 11 and running through the summer.

The show, a “The View”-like ensemble program, will feature a roundtable of five Fox News personalities from among the network’s deep bench of hosts and analysts, including Greg Gutfeld, Juan Williams, Dana Perino, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera, Andrea Tantaros, Eric Bolling, Monica Crowley, Bob Beckel and Kimberly Guilfoyle.

As we reported yesterday, Fox News will air encore presentations of Beck’s program next week.

Release after the jump…

FOX News Channel (FNC) will launch a new weekday program on July 11th at 5 PM/ET, announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network. Entitled The Five, the program will serve as a replacement for Glenn Beck during the summer.

The new opinion show will feature a roundtable ensemble of five rotating FOX personalities who will discuss, debate and at times debunk the hot news stories, controversies and issues of the day.

Bachmann Leading Romney, Competitors in New Poll

Stephan Dinan of The Washington Times reported a post-debate surge in Bachmann’s poll numbers. As more Americans see and hear Bachmann, the more they gravitate to her:

Fresh off her well-received performance in last week’s GOP presidential debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann now tops the field of candidates in a new Zogby poll of Republican primary voters.

The poll found Mrs. Bachmann garnering 24 percent of the vote, well-ahead of businessman Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who each received 15 percent support.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., who officially announced his candidacy on Tuesday, scored just 2 percent support.

Christie: “My Kids’ School is None of Your Business!”

NJ Governor Chris Christie told the following to a viewer on PBS the other day regarding public schools and why he sends his kids to private schools:

“What is her name. First off, it’s none of your business. Don’t bother where I send mine. Secondly I pay $30,000 in property taxes for a public school system predominantly that my wife and I don’t choose to utilize. We believe that a religious education should be part of our everyday children’s education. Third, I as governor and responsible for every child in this state not just my own. And decisions that I make are try to improve the educational opportunities of every child in this state. With all due respect it’s none of your business,” Christie told her.

Right on!

Another Establishment RINO Enters the GOP Contest

Jon Huntsman, former Utah Governor and recent U.S. Ambassador to China under Obama, declared his candidacy for POTUS today. This move increases the GOP field to eight candidates.

Here’s a video of the announcement he made, which mimics Ronald Reagan’s 1980 announcement:

Here are several reasons why he will not be our candidate:

Offense #1: He worked for the Obama Administration as the U.S. Ambassador to China.

This factor automatically disqualifies him from winning the nomination. We don’t need someone who pushed Obama’s agenda abroad to be our nominee, no matter how “honorable” it was.

Offense #2: He believes that global warming exists.

Green jobs have failed to add to private sector growth, and the movement to “Go Green” is run by eco-hypocrites.

Offense #3: He’s the Republican Barack Obama, and the farthest thing from Ronald Reagan.

A Yahoo opinion piece details why:

Craig Shirley and Bill Pascoe, the former of whom is the author of two books on Reagan, put the matter more bluntly in the Daily Caller. Not only is Huntsman not Reagan, he is instead a Republican version of Barack Obama. By that they mean that unlike Reagan, who was a candidate who relied on his ideas, Huntsman, like Obama, relies on his personality. In effect, in his moderation, Huntsman is devoid of ideas by design.

While Huntsman is not likely to prosper in his goal of cobbling together a coalition of Republican moderates and independents to win the nomination, he will play an important role in the upcoming 2012 campaign, at least while he lasts. He will be the media’s favorite Republican and, in the fullness of time, be used as a club to beat up Republicans when he is inevitably rejected.

The list goes on and on of repeat offenses by him. Nevertheless, Huntsman will not get a pass from the Tea Party and other disillusioned voters. America cannot afford another John McCain, similar progressive Republican, or Barack Obama.

Let the RINO hunting season commence! Real conservatives only.

How to Be Above Green Fanaticism on Your Campus

green-campusIn the narrow world of green fanatics, college students must follow the script.

They must save whales, be hippies, cuddle with lemurs, boycott meat, and defeat ‘global warming’.

Sadly, eco-hypocrites Al Gore and James Cameron, and their entourage of celebrity followers have brainwashed my peers with apocalyptic rhetoric, exaggerations and lies.Essentially, these zealots opine that the world is on the cusp of destruction due to “‘global warming’ and the continual abuse of Mother Earth.” If people don’t submit, green fanatics will do all in their power to convert skeptics.

And if that does not work they will use threats.

Take James Cameron’s words for example : “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads. Anybody that is a global-warming denier at this point in time has got their head so deeply up their ass I’m not sure they could hear me.

After meeting Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer at a Young America’s Foundation’s seminar last year, I was inspired to be more critical of ‘global warming’ and the green movement. I watched both of their documentaries—Mine Your Own Business and Not Evil Just Wrong—and saw the need to get this viewpoint out there through Facebook, articles, and other mediums. It was so refreshing to hear someone say that we were not alone in the fight to combat ‘global warming’ hysteria.

Previously, I knew cap and trade to be detrimental to the United States, but wanted to know more. Ann clarified this during a speech at Young America’s Foundation’s “Advancing Freedom” seminar last July.

“Cap and trade is an unbelievable scam. They want to punish fossil fuel companies. It will be disastrous to America,” she said.

Like other campuses, my university—the University of California at San Diego—inundates students with sustainability tips, Meatless Mondays, green products, and a slew of awareness events. This university has also played host to Ralph Nader, Al Gore, and as of late, Bill Clinton and his Clinton Global Initiative University program. Unless speakers like Ann McElhinney are brought to campus, students will never hear the alternative viewpoint.

Additionally, her views on sustainability are spot on. Known for being straightforward, Ann McElhinney exposes the hypocrisy of the green lifestyle with witty remarks, anecdotes, and jokes. For example, she sheds light on how maniacal, hypocritical, and anti-human environmentalists are during speeches at campuses, events, and rallies nationwide. At CPAC 2010, Ann exposed James Cameron for being an eco-hypocrite.

She said, “James Cameron is an idiot because James Cameron makes a film where mining is evil and living in the rainforest is gorgeous. Here’s my advice for James Cameron: Burn your passport and move to the rain forest. Bring your mother there!”

Watch more from her video below from CPAC 2010 detailing how deceiving and anti-American Avatar and its proprietor, James Cameron, really are.

Fortunately, a growing number of college students are rejecting this brouhaha.

John Howting, a recent graduate of Miami University in Ohio, describes the crusade to combat ‘global warming’ as one that misleads.

“First it was “global cooling” then it was “global warming”…now it’s “global climate change”… I call it the four seasons,” he said.

Justen Charters of Oregon adds that apocalyptic rhetoric makes ‘global warming’ not credible.

“The Second Ice Age was supposed to happen thirty years ago. Unless they were predicting the sequel to the Pixar film, liberals are messing up the facts again. Global warming, I mean climate change, is as much of a farce as Harold Camping’s rapture prediction…”

There is a growing need for young people to expose ‘global warming’. As a result, I have been enlisted by Ann and Phelim Media, LLC, as the New Media Intern to help disseminate the truth about movement to “Go Green.” My work will range from exposing outrageous ‘green schools’ to bringing Ann McElhinney to campuses nationwide to disseminating information about our films and upcoming projects.

It is pivotal that my generation sees how nonsensical and equally farcical worshipping individuals like Al Gore and living green lifestyles really are. Be sure to check out NotEvilJustWrong.com for updates to learn how you can get involved.

WaPo Writer Stoops to New Low, Accuses Glenn Beck of Being “Anti-Semitic”

Glenn Beck at Restoring Honor

Every loyal Glenn Beck viewer knows he is the farthest thing from an anti-Semite.

Nevertheless, the MSM continues to spin the narrative that Beck hates Jews and Israel.

The Washington Compost…err, Washington Post, featured scathing drivel from Dana Milbank, who has a penchant for spewing venom on the likes of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party Movement.

His latest attack on Glenn Beck alleges that he is  a “Jew-loving, anti-Semite.” He lamented Senator Joe Lieberman’s (I-CT) decision to join Glenn Beck at his “Restoring Courage” event in Jerusalem this August:

Lieberman, who knew Beck back when he was a morning DJ in New Haven, may have missed some of the broadcaster’s recent feats: hosting a guest on his show who describes as “accurate” the anti-Semitic tract “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”; likening Reform rabbis to “radicalized Islam”; calling Holocaust survivor George Soros a “puppet master,” a bloodsucker and a Nazi collaborator; touting the work of a Nazi sympathizer who referred to Eisenhower as “Ike the Kike”; and claiming the Jews killed Jesus.

According to this columnist, Glenn Beck is merely a ‘creature’, not a man. God forbid a conservative reaches out to Democrats and independents to stand with Israel! (Leftist brouhaha at its finest.)

The following is simply ludicrous:

I admire Lieberman, and I’ve defended him over the years when he defied party and faction. But if he shares a stage with this creature, he will surrender the decency that has defined his public life.

Beck appropriately lashed back at Milbank with the following from the The Blaze:

On his radio show Monday, Beck unleashed on the Washington Post for its “smears” and for “propping up lies.” Not only did he point out that he’s received the “defender of Israel award” from the Zionist organization of America — an honor previously bestowed upon the likes of Joe Biden, Tom DeLay, and even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — but he also used a bit of historical evidence.

 Indeed, George Soros surrendered Jews to Nazis. To deny such makes one guilty by association.

Self-hating Jews and their apologists should be scrutinized, not Glenn Beck. (As a pro-Israel half-Jew and Glenn Beck fan, these people do not speak for me, for his fans, or for other pro-Israel advocates.)

Enough of these people getting away with this smear campaign. I hope that Mr. Beck pursues legal action against Milbank for defamation. The truth will persevere, and Glenn Beck will continue to stand tall and be courageous.

To bury the hatchet, let me humor you with the following: If Glenn Beck is a “Jew-loving, anti-Semite”, then I might as well be a “Nazi-loving, anti-communist”!  (Crying anti-Semitism v. Glenn Beck is illusory and nonsensical. It’s like claiming my deeply-rooted, anti-communist conservatism is based on love of Nazism and Marxist-Leninism. It just doesn’t make sense.)

NBC’s Omission of “Under God” is Deliberate Attempt to Undermine the U.S.

During the U.S. Open golf championship this past weekend, NBC omitted “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance ad. Shortly afterward, they issued a weak apology expressing ‘regret’ for this mishap.

The Washington Examiner reported on it below:

“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago, and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time,” announcer Dan Hicks told viewers. “Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone, and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

Here’s the ‘formal apology':

Undoubtedly, this move to nix “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance is not new.
Public schools have been vigilant in their efforts to undermine religion, Judeo-Christian principles, and longstanding American traditions for many years. (I recall when I was in elementary school, everyone said the Pledge without hesitation–even if they didn’t agree with it. Many students can attest to this too.)
Since I moved on to college, the Pledge of Allegiance came under siege more.
The people currently in charge of creating school curricula want to discourage the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance and a whole host of other things. Whether it is skipping out on this or abstaining from saying it, the cultural Marxists are succeeding in their efforts to demoralize American values…Nevertheless, their efforts can and must be thwarted.
Whether or not one is religious, the Pledge of Allegiance is symbolic to the United States. If it is tampered with, then everything goes.

Student Bloggers Desired for National School Choice Week (January 22-28, 2012)

Along with the looming debt crisis, destruction of international relations, and equally deliberate attack on American morals and values, education is a hot button issue that commands equal attention.  Members of our generation must participate in the education debate. Americans depend on our input.

As one who put up with a public school education (then Capistrano Unified School District 1996-2009, now UCSD 2009-2012) mired by teacher protests and scandals  involving corrupt district officials, I have concluded that school choice is the only option that ensures education reform. Nevertheless, the fight doesn’t stop there: we must defeat and undermine powerful, yet equally selfish, teachers unions.

If school choice concerns you or if you feel inclined to tackle this issue, be sure to sign up to blog about school choice from January 22-28, 2012. Check out this opportunity below and be sure to sign up by July 1, 2011:

National School Choice Week is looking for college student bloggers to write about such topics as personal experience, particular school choice options in their community, interviews with school choice leaders, etc. Each student will be asked to blog a minimum of once per month beginning in September through National School Choice Week, which is January 22-28, 2012. A retreat will be held in mid to late August to familiarize the students with the coalition leaders and the variety of issues surrounding School Choice Week.

Additionally, the students will be invited to attend one of National School Choice Week’s planning meetings closer to the week, where they can get to know the broader group, as well as report on their activities. During National School Choice Week, students will be encouraged to attend an event and blog about it. If you are interested in helping NSCW become a great success in 2012, please contact Alisha Meneely at alisha@schoolchoiceweek.com by July 1, 2011.
