CNN anchor Piers Morgan isn’t benefiting from much Christmas cheer, at least according to one measure: The number of signers on a petition urging the White House to deport Morgan has skyrocketed by late Tuesday afternoon to nearly 66,000 names. The petition, created last week, had 65,887 supporters around 5 P.M. Tuesday and is posted on the White House’s official petition site. It slams Morgan for comments he has made regarding gun control in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 children and six adults.
Comments: His speech is protected by Constitution he despises
Why should a LimeyRickey like Piers Jackwad have any constitutional protections, i.e. free speech? He´s NOT a citizen and therefore is not afforded the luxury of constitutional protections! Back to merry ol´ England with him.
Morgan is and always has been a raging nut case, seemingly enthralled with the percieved "perfection" of the European way, in spite of evidence that glares in the "otherwise" light. He is a liberal hack who has mananged to show the American public his forked tail - so, Good, if you don´t like what the brand is offering, turn it off- That´s how I vote - I refuse tow watch CNN- even at the DR. office (I scoff and ridicule CNN loudly when it´s on there). I don´t subscribe to liberal news papers or watch any major networks that slander my country - and I try to never shop at places that support them.
His speech may be protected. (recall that rights COME from the Almighty, our Constitution simply recognizes what was already there). So, no, we can´t throw him in jail for offensive speech. Unlike Britain. But his presence in the USA is *NOT* protected. He could be frogmarched to the docks and put on a rowboat this very afternoon and tough noogies at that. Kick the bum out. Today.
I detest Morgan but have to concede this petition is idiotic and to brag that 60.000 have signed it is even more idiotic.
There is only one effective course of action and that is to STOP WATCHING these idiots.
Stop watching the lefty channels and stop watching any clips of their shows on posted in the internet.
Bill Maher says something offensive - DONT WATCH. Saturday Night Live has that rare skit that may be mildly funny - DONT WATCH. Letterman insults some conservative woman - DONT WATCH. Springsteen, Straisand, Moore, Belafonte, Penn just DONT WATCH, DONT GO TO THEIR MOVIES, DONT LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC.
Newsbusters has been documenting the ridiculous statements made by all these clowns for years (since they were called Media Research Center). I think it is counterproductive, the solution is to ingnore them not to propagate their venom.
make no mistake - he loves this. there´s no such thing as bad publicity. no way no how would I ever add my name and contact info to a WH website. I realize we´re all under some kind of scrutiny or another, but I´ll be darned if I´m going to make it super simple for them to reach out for me...
Much as I despise boycotts, if CNN will not take action and dump him, we will need a list of pm´s sponsors. I never watch the twit so boycotting PM and CNN is meaningless but I can boycott any of his sponsors in a heartbeat. The libs did it to Rush Limbaugh so it should be a totally acceptable action against PM and CNN, right?
Mark Steyn just advised on The Rush Limbaugh Show a few minutes ago that the DC police warned David Gregory NOT to exhibit the illegal (in DC) 30-round magazine on Meet the Press last Sunday, and Gregory flouted the DC police.
Steyn said that Gregory want ´to cling´ to the magazine. LOL!
The group of idiots who dreamt up the idea of the general public being able to start petions on the WH website and setting a pretty low bar of 25,000 signatures in order to receive a response from the WH are probably living off cat food and the generosity of strangers by now.
BTW, has there been a response from the WH yet? Didn´t think so, and I don´t expect one.
Give him a one-way ticket on a freighter bound for Europe and then just before the border between Britain and international waters, dump him out in a row boat and a life jacket and he can row his way to British soil.
Don´t sign anything the WH puts out. They like seeing us waist our time with useless devices like this. Then one gives your name and whatev and they can harass the heck out of you or have some hacks do it. Don´t fall for it. CNN only has 184,000 viewers at night. This fop is just getting eyeballs. We are played for fools.
Nearly 365,000 people selected a private health plan on state Obamacare markets through the end of November — a sign that people are flocking to the patched-up federal website, HealthCare.gov — although the new pace falls short of long-range projections for an inaugural sign-up period that ends in March. The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday announced a total of 364,682 enrollees in private health plans from all states in Oct. 1-Nov. 30. The release came shortly before agency Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was slated to testify before Congress about the state of the health care law’s implementation. The new report
Senate Democrats facing tough reelections say President Obama has not done enough to fix the botched rollout of his healthcare law and are vowing to repair it themselves. The Senate Democratic leadership is not on board with lawmaker plans to begin rewriting ObamaCare and have urged for more time to assess the changes made by Obama and his team, lawmakers say.
Rep. Lou Barletta (R., Pa.) introduced a bill Tuesday that will exempt volunteer fire departments from having to pay for their members’ insurance benefits. The current IRS policy defines volunteer firefighters as employees for federal tax purposes. If voted into law, the Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act will redefine volunteers as non-employees, which will relieve fire departments from the burden of paying for volunteers’ health insurance. “Without further guidance from the IRS—which could have issued a clarification immediately if it so chose—we have no choice but to pursue a legislative fix to yet another problem with Obamacare,” Barletta
Major U.S. cellphone providers received more than $20 million from law enforcement agencies in conjunction with more than 1.1. million user information requests in 2012, according to documents released Monday by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. Five of the seven companies queried offered precise or ballpark figures for the revenue they received from law enforcement in 2012. AT&T said it received $10,298,000, T-Mobile USA said approximately $11 million, Verizon Wireless said less than $5 million, U.S. Cellular said $241,000 and C Spire said $55,000.
NEW DELHI— The Dalai Lama will not attend memorial services for fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson Mandela in South Africa, where the Buddhist spiritual leader has twice been unable to obtain a visa, a spokesman said Monday. Tenzin Takhla gave no specific reason for the Dalai Lama missing the memorial service in Johannesburg and funeral in Mandela´s hometown, saying only that "logistically it´s impossible at this time." The Dalai Lama — based in the Indian hill town of Dharamsala since he fled China in 1959 — was welcomed to South Africa in 1996 and met with Mandela when he was South
Newspaper editors typically operate behind the scenes, overseeing reporters inside the newsroom and outside the spotlight. But since Ricardo Baca was named the marijuana editor of The Denver Post last month, he has been celebrated across the globe. He has appeared on CNN and “The Colbert Report.” Long-lost high school acquaintances have surfaced, with one inviting him to his friend’s basement for a smoke. Emails have flooded in from freelancers and readers, offering up their expertise on the subject matter. “We’re taking an extremely credible, professional approach to this,” Mr. Baca said. “I was surprised that it was such an immediate punch
There has been much ado about MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir´s contemptible attack on Sarah Palin, which has now resulted in Bashir resigning from the left wing network. But to those of us who write from the right his remarks are anything but unique. Despicable remarks are hurled at us all the time and the only difference about the Bashir flap is that ours usually come anonymously via email or snail mail. In my experience, the most hateful responses I´ve ever received are for columns addressing either gay rights or radical Islam. In 2007, I wrote a column for the New York
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
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
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.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
