MSNBC’s Martin Bashir says Sarah Palin’s bus tour “could be in breach of a federal law” because her bus displays the U.S. flag:

In his accusatory “Clear the Air” segment, the former ABC Nightline anchor lectured Palin that “standards of respect and etiquette” discourage using the American flag for “any advertising purpose whatsoever.”

“She drapes herself in the stars and stripes and makes millions of dollars in the process,” chided Bashir. “This has got nothing to do with the presidency and everything to do with filling her pockets.”

The only problem: the Supreme Court ruled in 1989 that flag burning is protected by the First Amendment. If flag burning is protected speech, certainly displaying the flag on a tour bus is legal. Or do the rules not apply to Sarah Palin? In Bashir’s warped sense of reality, conservatives like Palin would be arrested for flying the American flag at rallies in which they promote causes that Bashir does not support.

Rep. Anthony Weiner repeatedly refuses to answer questions from reporters about the Twitter photo controversy. Weiner’s response to basically all the reporters’ simple questions was “this is a distraction.” After receiving this same response to several questions, one of the reporters finally tells him, “This ‘distraction’ might go away if you answer some of the questions that are out there.”

CNN reports that Rep. Anthony Weiner has refused to answer “basic questions” about the “Weinergate” Twitter controversy. Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked but refuses to say whether he has asked for an investigation. He also refused to explain why he was following a 21-year-old female student on Twitter, and wouldn’t even answer if the “lewd photo” was a photo of himself.

Here is video of Gov. Sarah Palin talking with Greta Van Susteren aboard her bus on her Bus Tour of historic sites. This is a preview of an extensive interview that will air tonight on Van Susteren’s Fox News program.

Palin addresses criticism from the Mainstream Media about the tour, particularly that there is no set schedule for stops. Palin responded to the criticism by saying flatly, “I don’t think I owe anything to the Mainstream Media.”

That is undeniably true, as they have savaged her since she was selected by Sen. John McCain to run as his Vice-Presidential running mate in 2008.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has said repeatedly he has no intentions of running for President in 2012. But a group of Iowa GOP businessmen are not taking no for an answer. They are flying to New Jersey today (Tuesday) to meet with Christie over dinner, where they will try and persuade him he needs to get in the 2012 race for President:

DAILY CALLER: As Republicans seek the best candidate to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012, some Iowa Republican donors are wooing a reluctant Chris Christie, saying the New Jersey governor’s blunt style makes him the man for the job.

Next Tuesday (May 31), about half a dozen businessmen from Iowa — which holds the first nominating contest in the presidential race — will make the case to Christie over dinner at the governor’s mansion for his entering the contest. . . . . Read More

There is outrage in Syria in the wake of the reported torture and killing of a 13-year-old Syrian boy by the Syrian Police. Protesters poured into the streets for mass demonstrations against the regime of Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad. Assad has put down protests against his regime with brute force and intimidation for weeks.

This link goes to a YouTube video that shows the unspeakable torture aftermath of the 13-year-old boy (Hamza Al-Khateeb), who is now the face of the Syrian Protest Movement. How anyone could do this to another human being is hard to grasp. BE ADVISED that it is extremely graphic and disturbing.

Here is video of Charles Krauthammer on Fox News last night, where he was asked about Sarah Palin’s Bus Tour to Historic Sites going on right now. Krauthammer described it as, “more eccentric than usual, this event. She says she is going around to highlight ‘the foundation of the country.’ I don’t want to be picky, but generally we say the ‘founding’ of the country. I know I’ll get email on that.”

Krauthammer said he thinks Palin is working to keep her “brand” alive, and the bus tour is certainly getting a lot of attention.

Here is video of Gov. Sarah Palin talking to reporters in an impromptu Q & A outside her hotel near the Gettysburg Battlefield as she continues her Bus Tour of some of America’s Historic Sites.

The raw video shows Palin taking questions from the media, and answering in her unique style. Palin was asked if she decides to run, would her campaign be more “non-traditional”:

Palin responded with: “Oh, it would definitely be unconventional and nontraditional, knowing us.”

On the odds of her running, Palin said she really did not know: “I don’t know. I honestly don’t know. It’s still a matter of looking at the field and considering much. There truly is a lot to consider before you throw yourself out there in the name of service to the public because its so all-consuming.”

Here is a video report by CNN’s Dana Bash on the bizarre controversy that has erupted over Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account, which apparently sent a “lewd photo” to the account of a Seattle woman over the weekend. It was quickly deleted, and Weiner claims his account was “hacked,” and the picture sent without his knowledge.

However, Dana Bash reports that neither the FBI nor the Capitol Police have been asked to investigate the alleged “hacking” incident. Conservative Andrew Breitbart has been leading the charge to get at what happened here, which has led many Left-wing sites to come to the defense of Weiner.

I’m not sure what happened here, but you would think when a member of Congress claims his account has been “hacked,” it ought to be looked into thoroughly. If the hacking took place, you would expect Rep. Weiner to call for that official investigation promptly.

GALLUP: U.S. military veterans and those currently on active military duty are less likely to approve of President Obama’s job performance than are Americans of comparable ages who are not in the military.

These results are based on an analysis of more than 238,000 interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking from January 2010 through April 2011. Respondents were classified as veterans/active-duty military based on responses to a series of questions probing whether any member of the household had served in the U.S. military, and whether the respondent himself or herself had served and, if so, whether the respondent was currently on active duty. Americans currently serving in the military overseas or on ships at sea would not be included in this national cell and landline telephone sample.

Thirty-seven percent of all active-duty military personnel and veterans surveyed approved of the job Obama is doing during the January 2010 to April 2011 time frame. That compares with 48% of nonveterans interviewed during the same period. . . . . Read More
