Weeks before members of U.S. Sen. Scott Brown's staff were caught on camera taunting supporters of his opponent, Elizabeth Warren, by imitating “tomahawk chops” and “war whoops chants,” Bob Bolduc, a disabled veteran experienced it. Mr. Bolduc, who has Native American heritage, said that while holding signs for Ms. Warren in Auburn and Worcester, he would occasionally be passed by motorist who would throw war whoops and other stereotypical Native American utterances at him. “Here I am a person with Native American heritage, and these people were treating me
Comments: The next time the (New York Times-owned) T&G cuts staff, Clueless Clive should be at the top of the list of cuts for writing this inaccurate and worthless drivel.
Clive, you fool, don't you get it? Warren displaced some authentic person of color for that harvard job, with her undocumented claim to be a person of color! There is a black man, or black woman attorney who was rejected for employment at Harvard Law School because Warren was hired as a fake person of color.
If we are expected to show any respect for people of color or of a certain race then Elizabeth Warren should be thrown out of this political race immediately. She has been a liar and a phoney from the get-go and McFarlane knows it.
I read the article, but I must have missed something...what did Scott Brown do that shows his lack of graciousness and good taste? Sorry, can't help that people of Massachussetts have no class or goo manners.
Elizabeth Warren used her FAKE Native American Heritage to displace a genuine Native American at both U of PA and Harvard. Brown supporters are not being disrespectful of Native Americans - but of LIARS. Warren also is guilty of practicing law without a license and taking money under false circumstances. When will Harvard throw out this Criminal?
If you go to the American Spectator of 9.26.12., you will find an article by Patrick Howley titled: The Real Story of the Scott Brown Indian War. It makes for interesting reading and explains what happened there that Granny Warren was so disgusted about. She is as phoney as thet come.
Wow! That such behavior as reported by Bob Bolduc could occur in The People's Republic of Massachusetts just shows how far we have come yet how far we have yet to go. Sigh! Btw, it says in the article Bolduc "called the Brown headquarters and left them a message", but nowhere does it say he has any proof the miscreants were connected in any way whatsoever with the Brown campaign. Do I smell a smear?
How many lies were in that short article? Dems protecting Dems. Clive's Little running deer has somewhat of a mess that needs to be cleaned, but the possibility of having committed a felony is just another day in the life of a Dem.
Re "Bill John Baker, Cherokee Nation chief": McFarlane forgets to tell you that Baker is a Democrat activist with a record of recent donations to the Dem party and candidates, and was a delegate to the Dem convention. McFarlane also forgets to mention the Cherokees who have tried to meet with Warren at the convention, and locally for months now, and consistently received the back of her hand.
Re Bolduc the sign holder: if someone with alleged "Native American heritage" is publically hoisting a Warren sign at an intersection, somebody should gently tell that guy that you takes what you gets. It's called free speech. He's lucky that all he heard was the "stereotypical" whoops. If you brandish a sign supporting someone generally viewed as a lying, hypocritical witch, and a bogus Indian to boot, don't be surprised if you become a figure of ridicule and your own "heritage" is put in question.
Re the terrible Brown workers "taunting" Warren supporters at a rally: McFarlane neglects to tell you that all of that came about when Warren supporters (union types would be my guess) invaded a Brown event with the view of breaking it up, and then video recorded (or "caught on camera," in McFarlane's phony language) the taunts and laughter of the Brown crew. This entire contrived event then got pushed by a compliant media to give them an excuse not to cover all the revelations this week about Warren's misrepresentation of her legal work and her having no license.
By the way, a month ago when a Warren driver assaulted a Brown video tracker, Warren insisted she bore no responsibility for her staffers' or volunteers' behavior. Double standard, Lizzie? Double standard, McFarlane?
By the way, the phoniest part of this piece -- and it's a close call -- is McFarlane's headline. Since when has "character" mattered to any Dem pol or any Dem supporter, especially in Massachusetts? If "character" mattered to Dems, the candidacy of Pocaheinous Warren would be unthinkable. She would have been kicked back to Harvard Yard months ago.
Our bankrupt politics is on strident display in the manufactured crisis engulfing Obamacare. In every newspaper and on every news channel, Republicans can be found salivating over the success of their sabotage campaign, while fair-weather Democrats, fearful of upcoming elections, are backsliding on their commitment to adequate and affordable health care. And what exactly is feeding the frenzy on both sides? We are being told that it is the botched rollout of a government website where individuals can shop and sign up for health insurance. We are being told also that it is President Obama´s broken promise, the one he
President Barack Obama is doubling down on his Obamacare lies. He is now trying to erase retroactively his point-blank assurance to the American people that “if you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan, period.” Drawing on his golfing experience, he is insisting on a mulligan as millions of Americans are losing the health insurance policies they have chosen because of Obamacare mandates. “What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” he told Obamacare’s political beneficiaries and contractors this past Monday during a speech they
Big Brother is not only watching you. He is eavesdropping on you, stealing your metadata, snooping in your email and telling you what to eat and which illnesses you can treat if you’re lucky enough to see a doctor once Obamacare is implemented. In Obama’s 1984, Mark Tapson shows that if he were here today George Orwell would see a disturbing resemblance between the U.S. and the dystopian future he wrote about so prophetically a generation ago. Obama’s 1984 takes the reader into the dark heart of this administration, a place of omnipresent NSA surveillance, police state tactics by the
I grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, and my elementary and high-school education was infused with the history that was all around us, so I was very curious to know just how the shutdown of the nation´s parks had affected my most favorite part of Minute Man National Park -- the Old North Bridge. Had the Park Service wrapped the iconic Minute Man sculpture by Daniel Chester French in burlap, so the tourists couldn´t see it? I took a few minutes on a perfectly gorgeous Columbus Day to find out. (snip for picture) As I expected, the parking lots had been
Last night (October 9), my wife brought home a pamphlet from our local CVS pharmacy, titled "Affordable Care Act Answers." I didn´t expect to find anything in this simple booklet that I didn´t already know, but it did refer me to their website on the topic, CVS.com/insurance, which my wife asked me to check out. On the website is this Q&A entry: Do I need to have insurance? Yes. The ACA requires all Americans have health care coverage "that meets basic minimum standards." I said to my wife, "That´s flat-out false," and I sent a brief, indignant note to CVS
There have been trying times when men of foresight, faith and conviction have helped us to transcend the frailty of our human condition and to soar mightily as if we were gods. This moment in time would seem tailor-made for the appearance of such a person. The civil war in Syria, in which that country´s brutal leader, Bashar al-Assad, is beset by opponents who are just as brutal, cries out for someone to show us with clarity, charity and certainty what should be done for the good of country and the world.
Testifying about the proposed attack on Syria before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on September 4, Secretary of State John Kerry said, "With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes. They have. That offer is on the table. ... In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we´ve done it previously in other places, they´ll carry that cost. That´s how dedicated they are at this. That´s not in the cards, and nobody´s talking about it, but they´re
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
