Al Sharpton Promotes His Own
Upcoming Anti-NRA Political
Rally… On MSNBC

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/27/2012 2:02:12 PM

MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton appeared with anchor Thomas Roberts on Thursday to promote his upcoming political rally in opposition to the National Rifle Association. This is not the first time that Sharpton has deliberately blurred the lines between a news anchor and a political activist, and for all the pronouncements that his hiring at MSNBC signaled a cultural shift — with straight broadcast anchors increasingly indulging in evangelism for political causes — Sharpton remains the only news anchor to headline explicitly political rallies. (Snip) “You’re no stranger to the fight to end gun violence,”

Comments:
I never thought I would live to see the day where "news anchor" and "Sharpton" were in the same sentence. That station gave up any credibility they may have had years and years ago.

Why hasn´t this black racist rabble rouser taken his anti gun stand to Chicago where young blacks are killing EACH OTHER at a rapid clip DAILY??? This is where the guns are ILLIGAL ( so is murder ) but the authorities are impotent to do anything to stop the carnage but the media fails to raise the issue because Democrats run the place and guns have been banned forever. How´s that working for Chicago??? Solve that meat-grinder first and then come up with LOGICAL suggestions before you open your foolish mouth!!!

If you have a few extra minutes and Internet access try this exercise.

Find out how many illegal shootings occurred in 2012.

Find out how many of those shootings were done by NRA members.


Sharpton is an idiot!

Most amusing! Even as Tawana Brawley makes it back into the news...

While it´s *extremely* politically incorrect to say so - we all owe Al Sharpton a debt of gratitude. As long as he´s around, there´s a legitimate reason for ´people of other races´ to use the ´N´ word to describe a human being.

We´ll have to invent a term to describe the liberal news media that considers him a viable news-blurber - but it´s also amusing as Hades to recall the Democratic party *almost* ran that buffoon for president, and drop dead hysterical to note how many liberals actually think Al´s relevant...

The reason CEO Jeff Immelt hired Sharpton at MSLSD is so he wouldn`t be out protesting at GE headquarters bellyaching about them not paying any taxes.

If you can`t beat `em - hire `em

The list of pretenders is growing at NBC.

Chelsea Clinton - pretend journalist.

Chris Matthews - pretend statesman.

Al Sharpton - pretend Reverend and pretend news anchor.

"blurred the lines between a news anchor and a political activist"

With the possible exception of their weekend prison shows and caught on tape shows, wouldn´t this explain ANY of the hosts of any MSNBC program (and much of NBC News as well)?

It´s just amazing that a so called news station can be allowed to use itself as a political platform for anything.Sharpton is totally yesterday with only a few bitter clingers still hanging by his side. But MSNBC and CNN using themselves as political activists shows how far the media has gone in the tank for left wing causes.

They´re not going to win the gun argument on a factual basis,so they simply return to the old playbook of thuggery.

Has Al ever repaid all his back taxes, or settled with the fines he got from the FEC over misuse of campaign donations?

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Analysis: Obama Celebrates
Eight Million ´Enrollments,´
Again Declares Debate ´Over´
Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democrat: Voters ´Frustrated

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

   

 



 
Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

immigration yesterday

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:41:24 PM     Post Reply
It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
