Representative Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) said that the National Rifle Association (NRA) opposed President Barack Obama´s gun control plans because the group “still cannot get over” the fact that the president is “black.” Following a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, Rep. Johnson suggested that NRA opposition to Obama’s gun control policies was personal. CNSNews.com then asked Johnson, "You said just a minute ago that part of the NRA´s true colors was a personal dislike of the president. Why do you think that is?" Rep. Johnson said, "First of all, he is a black.
Comments: Enough already!! When they have nothing the default position is racissssmmmmm. What would you expect from this mental midget.
Looks like our Hank is a bit of a paranoid racist himself, if he can´t grasp that there might be other sound reasons objections to Obama besides his complexion, incompetence and arrogance being among them.
Does anyone else feel like a bubble is getting ready to burst? Like this administration and its cronies, day by day, drip by drip, is just prodding prodding prodding us. It´s becoming unbearable. Stop with the race card, already!
I can´t get over the fact that Bow-Boy´s a birth-certificate challenged, Marxist-Hugo Chavez-socialist, despot and that 52% of the U.S. population are mentally challenged, Marxist-Hugo Chavez-socialists.
Hank, You got admit it took the first black man elected President to destroy over 200 years of Constitutional Republic and give us a soon to be dictatorship. There must be a reason the continent of Africa is such a mess.
#27 is correct. Communist is the term that describes what Zero is. Communist. Born and raised but not as smart. He just reads what others write for him... as long as it´s written by a communist.
#18. I feel the same tension, like the balloon is about to burst. This is, of course, what he wants. He´ll be safe so doesn´t care as long as the white conservative base is destroyed along with the American economy.
This is the MSM´s doing, by the way. Let´s not forget that when payback time comes.
Obama and these stupid black caucus members will soon be remembered for starting a serious anti-diversity movement in this country. It´s not going to be pretty. I´ll have to warn my black friends to wear armbands or something.
African-Americans are never going to be viewed as anything but whinners until they quit using the race card everytime someone expresses views opposite of theirs. That America elected a man to the highest office in the land of both black and white ancestry has done nothing to take away the only thing the African-American community at large has going for it, and that would be their obvious focus on race. Just who are the racists now?
Obama has set race relations back 50 years all by himself. He is seriously keeping blacks down on the old plantation which is now called welfare. Whatever happened to workfare? In the meantime he and his beard have 14 million dollars stashed away.
This is what is so amazing how stupid these race baiters are...after BO´s completed his additional four more of destroying American´s freedoms, how many employers are likely to hire even over-qualified blacks?
The conglomerate chip on the black shoulder has expanded so much under BO´s tenure, probably blacks won´t even hire blacks.
On a rainy Tuesday afternoon in Johannesburg, South Africa, tens of thousands gathered at FNB Stadium to pay respects to departed civil rights icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela. (Snip) His remembrance of Mandela’s life was followed by a challenge for people to ask themselves “how well have I applied his lessons in my own life?” “It is a question I ask myself – as a man and as a President,” President Obama continued. “We know that like South Africa, the United States had to overcome centuries of racial subjugation. As was true here, it took the sacrifice
Former CBS newsman Dan Rather is in a unique position to tackle the issues surrounding 60 Minutes following its erroneous Benghazi report, and on Piers Morgan‘s show Monday night, Rather explained what he says is the key difference between his report and Lara Logan‘s: his story was true. Rather echoed points made in Mediaite’s defense of Logan: that it’s very easy to blame the correspondent (being the face of the reporter) and forget that there are people working on these reports behind the scenes who are deserving of similar scrutiny, and that any judgment of Logan’s journalistic bona fides should take
The President famously promised that you could keep your health plan and doctor. For many people, both of those pledges are turning out to be false. And now, you might not be able to keep your medicine, either. There are two reasons why. The first has to do with the higher out of pocket costs patients will face. The second issue may be even more significant. Simply put, many drugs may not be covered at all, and the costs patients incur by buying them with cash won’t count against out of pocket caps. This has repercussions for drug makers with big portfolios
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
On Sunday, a media reporter for the Washington Post said he believed that MSNBC had fired host Martin Bashir because conservatives were relentless and did not quit in hammering Bashir and MSNBC for Bashir´s suggestion that someone should urinate and defecate in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Bashir resigned from MSNBC last week, nearly a month after he made his scripted remarks on his MSNBC program. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, the Post´s Paul Farhi said "the outrage was from the right, the idea that Sarah Palin and, by the way, a woman, obviously was
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
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
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty.

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
