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.
AHWATUKEE, AZ - Students at an Arizona high school are kicking off the new school year with a visit from the President. President Barack Obama will speak to roughly 1,000 members of the Desert Vista High School senior class Tuesday afternoon from the school´s gymnasium in Ahwatukee. Students had their first official day of classes on Monday. "We´re very excited, I´ve got something happening here that they (students) will remember for a lifetime," said Desert Vista High School Principal Dr. Anna Battle. The President will be speaking on the economy, housing and improving the middle class.
BRISTOL, Conn.— Even gun makers want to be liked. So governors and other politicians from states eager to embrace the industry have descended on places where they are not so popular — like Connecticut, Maryland, New York and Colorado — offering tax breaks and outright cash grants to persuade them to relocate. “I sensed an opportunity,” said Alan Clemmons, a South Carolina state representative, who traveled to Connecticut in the spring as part of a successful effort to lure PTR, a maker of assault rifles here. “They are not feeling loved right now in Connecticut. We’re delighted to
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus joined Sean Hannity Monday night to defend his threat to NBC and CNN that if they do not halt production on the Hillary Clinton films they’re working on, they will refuse to partner with either network in 2016 presidential election debates. Hannity agreed with Priebus that it will probably be a “love letter to Hillary,” while Priebus maintained the GOP needs a better handle on finding friendly outlets and moderators to team up with. Priebus slammed both networks for spending millions of dollars telling the story of someone who is very likely
A gunman opened fire on a town supervisors meeting north of Philadelphia on Monday night, killing three people and wounding two others, police said. Pennsylvania state police dispatcher Tyler Graumenz confirmed that three people were killed and said a suspect was in custody at an area hospital. The gunman reportedly was shot by a local official. A Pocono Record reporter at the Ross Township meeting said the gunman shot through the wall with an automatic pistol outfitted with a scope. "I saw smoke and plaster flying out, blowing out through the walls,"
To the employees of The Washington Post: You’ll have heard the news, and many of you will greet it with a degree of apprehension. When a single family owns a company for many decades, and when that family acts for all those decades in good faith, in a principled manner, in good times and in rough times, as stewards of important values – when that family has done such a good job – it is only natural to worry about change. So, let me start with something critical. The values of The Post do not need changing.
URGENT MEMORANDUM -TO: All the Better National Reporters -FROM: The Coach. SUBJECT: The Appearance of Credibility. Listen people, you’re doing great work. Our guy’s holding up very well considering how rough the economy is. No jobs, sky high dependency. Best part: people don’t blame him. They think he’s an innocent bystander rather than president for the last five years. We’re getting it done! (Snip) But in a really low blow, Matthew Continetti wrote a column pointing out that America’s elite scribblers had an extended audience with the leader of the free world and didn’t ask a single question about,
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
Organizing for America, the advocacy off-shoot of Barack Obama´s reelection campaign, has declared August as a month of "action." It is taking a page from the Tea Party playbook and trying to show grass-roots support for Obama´s agenda. Its first event on Sunday, Barack Obama´s birthday, was to promote the benefits of ObamaCare. In Northern Virginia, a base of support for Obama, it attracted one volunteer. One. From Politico: The Centreville event’s lone attendee, Lynn Duvall of Fairfax, Va., told POLITICO that it was her family’s own medical burdens that fueled her passion for Obamacare.
Lee Daniels hasn’t screened “The Butler” for the current occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but he did get to share a tub of popcorn with the Bushes when he showed them the movie a few months ago. “Barbara Bush loved [my movie] ´Precious,´ shockingly, and I couldn’t believe it,” Daniels said during a roundtable discussion at the National Association of Black Journalists’ annual convention. “I thought it was a set up or something. She sent me this lovely, really powerful email … and she said please come up and show the Butler to us in Maine.”
A questionable decision seven years ago by a politically connected University of Illinois at Chicago administrator has led to the reinstatement of a violent felon to a $73,985-a-year on-campus job. Besides having to put Thomas J. Morano back on the payroll, the state university is on the hook for legal fees and back pay amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Fired six years ago, Morano, 59, went back to work June 3 as an auto mechanic foreman at a UIC garage. He got his job back despite having been convicted of attempted murder
President Barack Obama, the joke´s on you. A study of gags by late-night comics during the first half of the year found an abrupt change from 2012. Now Obama and Democrats are providing the lion´s share of punchlines. Obama was the target of 288 monologue jokes made by Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel, according to an analysis released Monday by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. The next most joked-about individual was New York City Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, at 120. His numbers are likely to jump fast,
By traditional standards, the 2012 presidential election should have hinged on who offered the best ideas for dealing with the nation´s high unemployment and tepid economic growth – with most of the attention on the incumbent´s fiscal stewardship. It didn´t work out that way. Instead, President Obama and his team ran a relentlessly negative campaign, with the news media, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, going along for the ride. When Democrats did deign to discuss the economy, they essentially claimed Paul Ryan would roll your grandmother off a cliff in her wheelchair –
White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.
Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make
Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.
Not only should President Obama cancel a bilateral summit with "schoolyard bully" Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg. "President Putin´s behaving like a schoolyard bully, and in my experience, I´ve learned, unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more," Schumer said. "He´s always going out of his way, President Putin is, to seem to poke us in
I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email
