On NBC´s Meet The Press over the weekend, David Gregory was quite confrontational with the Vice President of the National Rifle Association over the organization´s idea of putting armed security guards in every school in America. But even as Gregory mocked the NRA for the idea, he seems to see nothing wrong with sending his own kids to a school that has armed security guards each school day. Introducing the NRA´s security guard proposal, Gregory confronted NRA VP Wayne LaPierre saying, "You blamed Hollywood and the gaming industry. But never once did you concede
It would be a good article to publish the names of the "Elites" in our society who send their kids to schools with armed security guarding them- I could put that listing together myself just on conjecture- but, that would not be very journo.
The condescending, rude and insulting Mr. Gregory is a prime example of why NBC Universal Media, LLC is now considered, by multitudes across the fruited plain, as an official enemy of "truth, justice and the American Way."
The ruling class does not have to follow the same rules as the great unwashed. So when we are trying to survive the mess this administration will be heaping on us they will go about their merry way because they are exempt.
NBC’s David Gregory, in response to the revelation that even his own children attend a school protected by armed guards, was seen to squirm, fidget and blush and heard to explain, “Ahumma Humma Humma…”
Not only does the French speaking David Gregory send his kids to a private, guarded school, but HE has security every step of the way at his Network---try to walk into THAT building without various checks by guys with guns. Like so many of the high and mighty, or even the low (Roseanne Barr), THESE PEOPLE lived in a bubble and are clueless. Disgusting....and he believes every word he says, by the way.
We are becoming Moscow on the Potomac. Obama wants 2 classes in America, the ruling class, and the serfs. As the decline continues, the welfare class will probably starve to death, leaving the worker bees to keep the Ruling class in luxury.
What is surprising about a liberal demanding that others do as he says, not as he does. In every area of life, from schools for their children, to their own private residences, to their armed guards and personal firearms, to the vehicles they drive, to their private fortunes and (lack of) charitable contributions, to their condemnation of everyone else as being “racist”, sexist and homophobic etc., to their never ending accusation that everyone but themselves is a “hypocrite”, Liberals are a transparent as the emperor with no clothing.
No. 19, if I may add to your list, the ruling class should all be under the same Medicare and Social Security plan as the rest of us commoners. That could bring down the deficit quite a bit. And include the Labor Unions, particularly the government employees´ one.
#13 amen..exactly..the Republicans go on these shows and look like robots when all this stuff is thrown at them..I want to see some aggression.slap the snot out of them..take lessons from Col. Alan West.when they go on these shows..they should know the background of these anchors..etc..do they not have any staff to do opposition research..if they don´t know..just let us know..WE can help them...and we will do it for free!!!
You will do as I say because I am part of the state controlled media we talk out of both sides of out mouths. We say one thing with one breath and in another breath say something else. The stupid people of America prolly were glued to their idiot boxes agreeing with that poor excuse of a human being and were never told about this special person sending his child to a school with armed guards. It´s like the state controlled media does NOT care about the public schools protecting their students. His selfish concerns are about his children and no one else. Hey stupid American´s keep supporting n.b.c. and the rest of the state controlled media!! What a bunch of looooooossssseerrrrssss you stupid American´s are!!! Don´t like being called "stupid American´s" then STOP listening to the god forsaken state controlled media and don´t let them make fun of you for wanting to protecting your children and then turn around and keep it a secret that their children attend a school with armed guards while yours are in schools with no armed guards and are standing in harms way!! HYPOCRATES!!!
Too bad that the NRA did not do their homework, as if they did they could have literally blown Gregory away on national TV for everyone to see.
Once Gregory had mocked the NRA school security guard idea, LaPierre could have come back with the following facts, Gregory´s kids attend a high end private school in D.C., where the tuition is $33,000.00 per student per year, and that the school has up to eleven police officers who work at that school as security guards, armed no doubt, along with the fact that there is also a US Secret Service detail at that school as Obama´s two daughters also attend that school. Obviously Gregory, a liberal mouthpiece was pushing a big time double standard, and the NRA could have brought that fact to the nations attention.
That seems to be the typical mindset of so many on the left..."Do as I say, not as I do." It´s laughable and ridiculous. All these high and mighty people have the means to see they are well protected - whether in Hollywood or DC. We mere mortals have to rely on our various law enforcement agencies to come to our rescue when we are threatened. I guess we really aren´t important enough to possess the means to be able to protect ourselves in our own homes. What arrogant people they are.
I´ve given up hoping for a real moment on one of these shows. You know like when that Marine stood up and asked some liberal, lifer politician a question and the pol said that he actually had the right to school his kids. THANK YOU, the Marine spat back at him. I sure would love to see the punks in the anchor seat, mouth off to the wrong guy who would rightly jump down their throats. He would get a stand up cheer from Americans who used to work for a living.
Tea party groups and fiscal conservatives wasted no time Wednesday in savaging a bipartisan budget agreement negotiated between House Republicans and Senate Democrats, drawing an unusually angry response from House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. All sides were rating the winners and losers in the deal struck a day earlier between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, Washington Democrat. The modest deficit-cutting deal had some sweeteners for defense contractors and oil drillers, while air travelers, federal workers and some corporate executives would take a hit.
The White House blasted Republicans on Wednesday for criticizing President Obama’s decision to shake hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro. “There used to be a pretty important principle, that originated in the Republican Party, I believe, that partisan politics should stop at the water’s edge,” said White House deputy press secretary Joshua Earnest. “It’s unfortunate that we did see a number of Republicans yesterday who criticized the president for a handshake.” Mr. Obama shook hands with Mr. Castro on stage in South Africa at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday. The U.S. does not have diplomatic relations with
FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — It doesn’t take long to realize that Jim Majoros is passionate about his job, as he ponders the hue of a new hunting rifle he’s working on. “I’m going to call it ‘Persephone,’ ” he said, referring to the Greek goddess. “It’s going to be light green in color, you know, more soft, but for women who want to hunt.” Business is brisk for gunsmiths such as Majoros, who repairs and customizes firearms in this small Lake Erie beach town east of Cleveland. This year, more than 82,000 new concealed-carry weapons licenses were issued in Ohio
House Republicans appeared Wednesday to be rallying around an $85 billion deal to avert another government shutdown, brushing off complaints from their right wing that the effort would trade immediate spending cuts for less-certain long-term savings. After conducting a series of closed-door briefings and polling members during a late-afternoon vote, GOP leadership aides confidently predicted that the deal struck between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) would sail through the House when it comes to a vote Thursday. The moment seemed to mark a potentially significant shift by House Republicans away
A year that began with President Barack Obama riding high after his re-election victory and inauguration ends with him in the biggest hole of his presidency. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds the president with more Americans disapproving of his job performance than ever before; with half saying they’re either disappointed or dissatisfied with his presidency; and with 54% believing he’s facing a long-term setback. Perhaps more significantly, Obama has seen a drop in key presidential attributes, such as being honest and straightforward, being able to handle a crisis and being able to achieve his goals. “These are
The federal health-care law is becoming a heavier political burden for President Barack Obama and his party, despite increased confidence in the economy and the public´s own generally upbeat sense of well-being, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll suggests. Disapproval of Mr. Obama´s job performance hit an all-time high in the poll, at 54%, amid the flawed rollout of the health law. Half of those polled now consider the law a bad idea, also a record high. The survey of 1,000 adults conducted between Dec. 4 and Dec. 8 found a sharp erosion since January in many of the
House and Senate negotiators announced Tuesday evening a $1.012 trillion two-year budget deal to replace some of the automatic spending sequester budget cuts and avert another government shutdown in January. Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said the two-year plan is a win for Republicans since it reduces the deficit by $23 billion without raising taxes or sacrificing core conservative values. “As a conservative, I think this is a step in the right direction. What am I getting out of this? I’m getting more deficit reduction. So the deficit will go down more by passing this than if we did nothing,”
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
