The petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan for his recent comments on gun control has reached over 49,000 signatures as of this posting, which will force the White House to respond. The petition, created Friday, needed 25,000 signatures within 30 days for the White House to take action and it’s reached far more than that in a mere three days. In case you missed it, the petition called for Morgan to be deported for his “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution.” Gun advocates are angry about Morgan’s comments calling for increased gun legislation in America and are accusing him
If it were up to me, I´d have this sanctimonious pompous twerp sent back to the UK tomorrow. He is insufferable. Only a loser network like CNN would keep him on. My guess: the UK doesn´t want him back. Maybe he should try Canada.
Only 2,482 more signatures are needed to reach 25,000 to make official the ´Stop any legislation that will ban "assualt weapons", semi-automatic rifles or handguns and high capacity magazines´. Go to www.whitehouse.gov to sign that one! When it reaches 25,000, the WH will have to respond to the petition.
The next one to go is Michael Moore since he sees absolutely no redeeming qualities of the US. He is always bashing the US and since he must weigh 500 lbs he certainly gets enough food and then there is his 1+ million house that he could sell (if anyone would buy it) and he could live like a Shiek in Saudi Arabia or perhaps more fitting Afghanistan. This man has such disrespect for the US and we certainly don´t need him here. He´s just taking up breathing air.
Someone help me out here please. Where did all this wh petition silliness come from? Do we really think that the idiot in the wh should take concrete action based on petition signatures? Are we so willing to believe that laws can be created by the wh occupant?
Sign in on a WH petition and believe me, your name goes on a list! Pass, thank you. Besides, we really need P. Morgan as an outstanding example of apoplectic liberalism out of control. I´ll bet he has sold as many guns and ammo rounds as the Resident himself.
i wont put my name on anything to do with this regime.........i hope piers gets booted...cant stand him but i want nothing to do with 1600.....i dont trust those people to ever do the right thing.....they will have your name forever
Nobody´s expecting him to be really deported. This is nothing more than the expression of his total unpopularity with the public. He was pushed forward as the hot new "thing" for CNN, bet is proving himself to be a toxic stink bomb and ratings disaster. To be famous in this country is not the same thing as to be liked or admired. PM will get ratings attention for a little while, but his unpopularity will remain. Hey Morgan! Kiss my #*%@!
It would be much more influential if each petition signer and those who don´t want to sign anything on a WH website would email CNN with your displeasure and notify the network that you will be boycotting them and their sponsors. The only thing the media cares about, other than their agenda, is money. Hit them where it hurts.
The WH will announce a blue ribbon commission to look into this and report back in a few months with specific recommendations. The WH will ignore the recommendations, the corrupt/defunct news media will consider it old news and ignore it, all resulting in the election-determining low information voters oblivious to it all and remaining a couple quarts low on information, and we will all move on. Whatta a country!
Right on #23. This is a WH petition. It doesn´t matter how many signatures they get. They will not nor do they have to do diddly squat. Instead of signing petitions, maybe e-mails and calls to Congress needs to be done regularly---like every day complainging to even people who do not represent you. Tell them your representation isn´t working for you.
To all those worried about being on a list somewhere. If you own a firearm, are registered as a Republican, or are a member of the Tea Party, comment on conservative blogs, or any number of other actions/activities that the Resident and his admin thinks is dangerous, then you are already on a list somewhere.
It´s semi-amazing how much junk I avoid and how many worthless gobs of clanking human garbage I´ll never know, simply by avoiding a few retarded teevee networks.
I´ve heard the name of this morgan twerp a lot lately, but I don´t really know who he is or what he does. I´ll sign the petition if it helps, but otherwise, he´s of less concern to me than the dust on my boots.
To hell with him on this beautiful SoCal Christmas morning, along with the entire cadre of miserable clown toadies pinballing around out there ruining our great Country.
More of the same kabuki. Just like the govt gets the Gays to register their betrothals or marriages, the WH wants people to sign-up so that they can be "contacted" and removed at a lster date. Same with the Lyndon LaRouche sign-ups,too. The gays will have a date with a crane. the Piers group will go to re-education camps, The LaRouche sign-ups will be scotched some how. the less this regime knows about you the better. File under "Fools, being played for."
Perhaps Piers Morgan doesn´t know or remember that after Dunkirk, private American citizens donated their own guns to Britain to help the British people defend against the anticipated Nazi invasion. Incidentally, the Nazis did not treat unauthorized people possessing firearms kindly. The penalty was death.
I´m amazed that Ldotters have missed a point here: the jackwagon is enjoying every minute of this fuss. Indeed, he caused it deliberately.
This is the most attention he´s gotten since he came to this country, having been (rightfully) disgraced for publishing pictures of British soldiers abusing an Iraqui, pictures which were subsequently admitted to being faked.
And then he was questioned in the phone hacking scandal.
Stop paying him notice.
His career headed for the toilet, he only wants you for the ratings.
Keep Morgan. Britain has enough problems. Return ØDumbø to Kenya, Indonesian, Packieeestand, or anywhere there is a short supply of idiots. These petitions don´t mean squat. Why would anyone waste their time and give their name to the government? BTW, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to each and every one of you and yours.
The Zero is playing golf in one of our most beautiful states. When he returns he four years ahead of him to do exactly as he pleases.
Do you really he is going to look at a petition? Hardly. He hasn´t read anything about government except his campaing speaches and when he goes off the written letter his true little petty, hateful personality comes forth.
Shouldn´t people just quit watching CNN like I did many years ago. Whenever I am in a waiting room and they have CNN on the TV I ask them to change the channel. CNN allows Piers Morgan and all of the other USA haters to exist. Boycott CNN and let their advertisers know why.
Either President Obama needs a new speechwriter, or he needs a new set of economic policies. Actually, he needs both. Can anyone think of a more boring, banal, irrelevant, or stale speech than the one he gave this Thursday in Washington DC? The speech was allegedly on the economy, but more likely it was to divert attention from the Obamacare catastrophe. Whatever the motive, his idea that the defining challenge of our time is to reduce income inequality is completely wrong. In truth, the defining challenge is to restore more rapid economic growth, create substantially more jobs, and significantly reduce
President Obama on Thursday said that Republicans should be “embarrassed” that they have not done more on Capitol Hill, blaming them for Washington gridlock. “They´ve got to be embarrassed,” the president said in an interview on MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews." “Because the truth of the matter is that they´ve now been in charge of the House of Representatives, one branch of, or one chamber in one branch of government, for a couple of years now and they just don´t have a lot to show for it.” Obama said that congressional Republicans were too fearful of offending their conservative base to
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
On Thursday, in the aftermath of South African iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s death at age 95, President Obama’s White House account tweeted a tribute to Mandela – a picture of Obama in Mandela’s Robben Island prison cell, along with a quote from Obama about Mandela: (Photo/Tweet) Even in paying tribute to a historic figure, President Obama couldn’t help but make it about him.
As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long “makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier,” and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. “The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes
Chris Matthews got his long-desired wish on Thursday, an exclusive interview with Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor didn´t exactly live up to the title of his show, wondering about Republican efforts to "make it difficult for minorities to vote" and questioning who was better, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden? Talking to the President at American University, Matthews read a question from Twitter: "What can we do to stop the GOP, the Republicans, from rigging the states, rigging the votes, state by state, to disenfranchise voters and destroy our democracy?" The host added, "Thirty six states right now led by Republican
Wednesday night, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews announced that his interview with the president, which is scheduled for today, gave him "the Christmas Eve excitement." Outside the left-wing fever swamp of MSNBC, Matthews is perhaps most famous to the American people for his 2008 comment about how an Obama speech put a "thrill up his leg." In his latest campaign effort to rehabilitate his sinking presidency and health care law, President Obama will sit down with Matthews this afternoon in front of a group of college students. The audience is no accident. Obama desperately needs healthy Millennials to be stupid
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.
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
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
