ABC, CBS, and NBC all refuse to identify
indicted Nagin as Democrat

Newsbusters, by Brent Baker

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 1/19/2013 6:21:07 AM

All three broadcast network evening newscasts on Friday night ran short items on the federal corruption indictments against the bumbling former Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, but skipped his party affiliation, a fact Reuters considered newsworthy – if not until their sixth paragraph: “Nagin, 56, and a Democrat...” ABC anchor Diane Sawyer generously described Nagin as “the face of Hurricane Katrina...then the Mayor of New Orleans fighting for his city.”

Nagin was more like the rear end of Katrina as he sneaked off to Texas

The article says Nagin blamed the federal government for Katrina problems. However, no one mentions it was the local authorities who by law had to act first and did not. The media, always so anxious to blame George Bush, did so and thus was born a myth that lingers still today.

Nagin: Just another two-faced, disingenuous, double-dealing Black defecrat taking advantage of the dumbed-down, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, Food-Stamp wielding, Escalade driving, Kool-Aid drinking, government-dependent, entitlement rich, busted-azz, free-loading, Obamaphone carrying Low-Fo Mo-Fo´s...

He maybe indicted but he will never be convicted especially if the trial is held in New Orleans IMHO. First there is jury nullification remember OJ. Second he´s black and a Democrat therefore CRT applies. All law breaking black Democrats politicians are given a pass just like the Black Panthers no matter the evidence.

#2 you make a great point, and not only does that myth still hang around today, Gov Krispy Kreme made it relevant in the 2012 election with his photo op with Obama. That myth, yet another one Bush and ROVE never ever fought against, might have cost us another four years of Obama seven years later.

Nagin, who refused to implement his city´s evac plan (remember all those school buses under water?) because he and his cronies stole (yes, stole) Cadillacs from a local dealer and drove out of town; they weren´t there to give orders. More disgraceful, in the aftermath, Nagin and then-police chief Eddie Compass ordered cops and Guard to disarm everyone in New Orleans. "No one will be allowed to be armed" were the exact words. Thousands of firearms were taken without cause from law-abiding citizens illegally.

This was the nation´s largest confiscation in history.

Nagin should have gone to prison for his misdeeds.

As for the media, their behavior is unsurprising. More people wake up to the fact ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and most printed media are propaganda arms of the collectivist left.

Nagin fought for his city from Dallas Texas. He was the first to abandon New Orleans, and has been in Dallas since. Nagin, although a job requirement of his office, never prepared or filed a disaster plan for New Orleans. Nagin was elected because he is black. After election, he used his office to profit personally with bribes and kickbacks on government contracts to blacks and whites. Money being green, Nagin is ok from whence it comes.

I guess I can understand why black folks voted for a brutha for his first term, but I will never understand how they voted him in for a second term. He bailed out on the city worse than any mayor ever bailed, in the history of the world. Yet he was reelected.

The media conveniently forgets that Bush spent serious phone time with Governor Betsy wetsy Blanco at least 24 hours before the storm hit. She refused to ask for fed assistance because she was worried about looking bad. Another epic failure for feminism.

The reason Nagin gave for not using the buses was that it was too demeaning to put black people in them. He actually said that. So the means of rescue for a lot of citizens was ignored and wound up destroyed because Nagin was an idiot.

In between planning her wedding to John Molner and winding down her talk show, Katie Couric will give a commencement speech at American University’s School of Communications on May 10. Couric’s father, John, was a graduate and adjunct professor. “She’s a giant in her field, an experienced journalist, storyteller, well-connected to the issues and the concerns of today,” said communications dean Jeff Rutenbeck.The school’s current faculty includes George Clooney’s father, Nick Clooney — who has taught at the university since 2008.

Even preschoolers are getting suspended from U.S. public schools -- and they´re disproportionately black, a trend that continues up through the later grades.Data to be released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm finds that black children represent about 18 percent of children enrolled in preschool programs in schools, but almost half of the students suspended more than once. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at least one preschool child.Advocates have long said that get-tough suspension and arrest policies in schools have contributed to a "school-to-prison" pipeline that snags minority students, but much of the

For decades, rapid economic growth has been the norm for developed countries. An educated workforce, a large population boom, major technological advances, and abundant fossil fuels were the key components of growth, generating substantial and broadly distributed increases in standards of living in many countries. We have grown so used to such growth that we inevitably view it as a panacea for a host of economic ills, whether it´s a deep recession or income inequality. We now understand, however, that the postwar growth paradigm is not environmentally sustainable. We also know that the shared prosperity it once delivered is itself

But HHS didn’t say exactly how it spent the money, and

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ.

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.
