Barack Obama, who has been called “the Christian President with the Muslim-sounding name,” did not express any gratitude to God in his Thanksgiving address for the fourth year in a row, causing critics to claim that “he has  ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.”

In his address, Obama said that Thanksgiving is “a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.”

Saturday's Washington Post reported “For more than three decades, noncommercial station WPFW-FM  in Washington has been a feisty voice of sometimes radical leftist politics — relentlessly anti-war, anti-corporate and anti-Republican.” Sometimes radical?

The Pacifica network specializes in hard-left (even Marxist) diatribes that appeal to tiny audiences. Post reporter Paul Farhi relayed they’re going a bit “mainstream,” toward the NPR empire, dialing down “jazz and justice” and playing up liberal talk:

In case you missed it, there's yet another United Nations climate conference in progress, this time in Doha Qatar. At the Associated Press, there is a story on a protest which organizers want to characterize as a "march for peace" by "a few hundred" climate activists demanding "climate justice." The AP's Karl Ritter warns readers that "Dangerous (global) warming effects could include flooding of coastal cities and island nations, disruptions to agriculture and drinking water, and the spread of diseases and the extinction of species" -- even though there has been no net warming in 16 years. Another AP story suggest that "SOME WISH ISLAM WOULD INFORM CLIMATE DEBATE." I'll suggest that the referenced "some" includes a few AP and other journalists and almost no one else.

But there has been no room at the AP, as confirmed in a search on the world "climate" at the wire service's website at 3:30 p.m. ET and a review of possibly relevant articles, for discussion or even recognition of a November 29 open letter sent by over 125 scientists "qualified in climate-related matters" who have informed U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon that "there is no substantiation" for the so-called "science" undergirding the meeting's agenda (produced in full after the jump; bold is in original):

While Team Obama might want a surge of economic activity over the holidays, the leftists are too anti-capitalist for that. On his radio show Monday, Thom Hartmann likened Black Friday to “The Hunger Games” death matches and talked of shootings and other violence that took place at or near stores last weekend. “The wealthy elite look down on the spectacle before them with amusement and, most importantly, the knowledge that the entire spectacle is fattening their bank accounts.”

But of course, everything ugly about Black Friday is easily blamed on....”thirty years of Reaganomics.” I kid you not:

An as yet unidentified source left flyers for a new "final club" under the doors of Harvard University students Friday that read "No f--king Jews."

A Kansas City Chiefs football player allegedly shot his girlfriend Saturday morning and then killed himself.

(UPDATE: The player was identified as Jovan Belcher, 25, one of the team's starting linebackers.)

Jay Leno continued a string of comedic pokes at liberal America Friday.

In his opening monologue on NBC's Tonight Show, the host said, "You know what you call the two winners of that $580 million Powerball lottery? Former Democrats" (video follows with commentary):

Glenn Beck interviewed Michael D'Antuono, the artist who painted “"The Truth,"” an image of President Obama with his arms extended as if he was being crucified and wearing a crown of thorns, during the conservative talk show host's Wednesday program on TheBlazeTV.

During the discussion, the painter stated that he did not intend to portray Obama as Jesus Christ, but after Beck replied “"I don't buy that,"” the artist confessed that he was trying to convey the concept that "Obama was being “metaphorically crucified by the Right.”"

Angus T. Jones told the truth. In a religious video posted on YouTube, the former child actor who’s the “half” man of the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” shocked the celebrity press by saying “I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”

Calling this show “filth” is like calling your Christmas tree an evergreen. Yet about 14 million Americans still love filling their head with this filthy show, and they don’t want to be told what they’re doing.

Penny Starr at CNSNews.com identified the latest ugly collision of Christmas kitsch: “A website that teaches visitors how to make crafts made of tampons includes a nativity scene with wise men, Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus made of tampons.”

Somehow it’s not awful enough that someone can’t resist dragging the holiest scene for Christians into the powder room. They have to make fun about a “bloody good Christmas”:

You know those secession petitions that began circulating after President Obama was re-elected? Well, according to one Kossack, they're superfluous, since America's "increasingly deranged" red states already have, in effect, seceded and become "The Roviet Union, or more formally the URCR - Union of Roviet Capitalist Republikkks."

As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym.

Reviewing several dispatches from the past couple of days, the latest news out of Egypt is that Egyptian "President" Mohammed Morsi "is not backing down in the showdown over decrees granting him near-absolute powers," that "clashes between the two camps (Morsi's Islamist supporters and secular opponents) ... left two dead and hundreds injured," and that the country's Muslim Brotherhood-dominated assembly "pushed through the 234-article draft (constitution) in just 21 hours from Thursday into Friday ... (after) Coptic Christians and liberals earlier had walked out."

The draft constitution includes several articles "that rights activists, liberals and Christians fear will lead to restrictions on the rights of women and minorities," and omits "bans on slavery or promises to adhere to international rights treaties." Oh, and I almost forgot: "The Obama administration is declining to criticize Egypt's draft constitution." It's worth identifying at this point several (but by no means all; what follows is surely a small sample) of those who in 2011 reassured the world that Egyptians had nothing to fear if the Brotherhood and Islamists became dominant.

With the “fiscal cliff” looming over Washington, D.C., CNNMoney correspondent Steve Hargreaves has proposed that one of the tax increases that should be on the table is a hike on the cost of the gasoline you buy to keep the family car running.

“Currently at 18.4 cents a gallon, the federal gas tax is used primarily to build and repair roads, bridges and other transportation infrastructure,” he stated in an article posted Wednesday on the CNN site. “The tax raises about $32 billion a year.”

Stephen Colbert channeled the mother and teacher from the classic "A Christmas Story" on Thursday's Colbert Report, as he made fun of a proposed dormitory for undergraduates with gun permits at the University of Colorado. The only thing missing from his left-wing stereotypes of gun owners as trigger-happy yahoos was the famous "you'll shoot your eye out" line.

Colbert cracked that the move from the mountain state school would "forever ensur[e] that no one will think of it as a safety school." After pointing out that not one student had signed up for the dorm, he snarked, "Come on! This is college! It's time to get crazy - do shots, take shots, get shot....live a little - if not very long." As you might expect, CBS This Morning spotlighted the Colbert sketch on Friday.

How can someone who garnered nearly 60 million votes in a recent presidential election not be considered the least bit influential? As inexplicable as it sounds, that's what GQ Magazine declared when it selected Mitt Romney to headline its annual list of the 25 most uninspiring and insignificant people of the year. According to the author however, they were ranked in no particular order, "because all zeros are created equal."

Seeing a perfect opportunity to have a little fun at the expense of others, the hosts of MSNBC's The Cycle compiled their own list on Thursday. Token conservative S.E. Cupp appeared to have taken the assignment literally with a clip that introduced the world to a mild-mannered man from Indiana. Krystal Ball and Touré Neblett followed, and having some inkling of where their heads were at -- Cupp pleaded with them not to pick her. Instead they chose Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh respectively, gloating about how wrong they both were about Romney's legitimate chance to emerge victorious.
