MSNBC guest host Joy-Ann Reid wonders why conservatives were focusing on the racial elements of the shooting of Australian baseball player Christopher Lane. “You’ve already started to see people on the right try to do exactly what Brian [Beutler] was saying: Tally it up on the basis of race,” Reid said yesterday. She accused the “Right [of] directly trying to bait the president on race on this situation,” singling out former Republican congressman Allen West’s tweet and Fox News’ reporter Ed Henry’s question on Wednesday asking for a comment on the shooting from the Obama administration. “Why do they seem so determined
They sure don´t like it when the facts get in the way for them. This one was about race. The Trayvon Martin one was not about race. This has been their MO for years. It´s so obvious that they are lying.
This country is filled, sad to say, with budding teenaged racist black "childen" who listen to misogynist bigoted hip-hop and rap "music" and have developed a veritable hatred of white people without basis in fact. Hence the three youths who were involved in Christopher Lane´s murder, the two who shot the baby in a stroller, and the one, Trayvon Martin, whose own racism led him to viciously assault, batter and attempt to murder George Zimmerman. Also the dozens and dozens of young black "men" who shoot other young black men in every large city in this nation.
Until the LIEberals can admit the veracity of the above, nothing will change, and more white people--and Latinos, Asians and other black people--will die needlessly.
Until you recognize a problem, you can´t possibly fix it. And some in this country have a problem recognizing that it is not okay for teenagers to murder innocent joggers. It is not okay for teenagers to murder innocent senior citizens. It is not okay for teenagers to murder innocent toddlers.
Shut up about everything else...deal with the problem.

The reason that the conservative media is trying to make this about race is because, you brain dead liberal racist, is because it was done because of race. Some fine upstanding black teens decided that they were bored and needed something to do. They decided that they would go out and kill them a white man. That would relieve their boredom. Maybe you, Mssssssssssss Reid, should take a good look at your racism and racist views in order to see what is really happening in the black community in this country. You and your ilk promote hate.
A final effort by Senate Republicans to halt cuts to pensions of military retirees failed late Tuesday, after Democrats blocked an amendment to the controversial budget bill. The two-year budget agreement, which cleared a key test vote earlier in the day, was expected to get a final vote no later than Wednesday. Ahead of the final vote, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., tried unsuccessfully to use a parliamentary tactic to force a vote on the amendment, which he wrote to undo the cuts for military retirees. A provision in the already House-passed bill would cut retirement benefits for military retirees by $6 billion over
Federal Judge Richard Leon has become a sudden political celebrity after his remarkable opinion holding that antiterror surveillance is unconstitutional and, even more remarkably, enjoining the entire program. If only his legal reasoning were as compelling as his new repute. Klayman v. Obama was filed in the D.C. district court in the backwash of the Edward Snowden disclosures and claims that the National Security Agency´s bulk collection of telephone records violates the Fourth Amendment´s ban on unreasonable searches. Judge Leon´s 68-page opinion stays his injunction pending appeal. The largest flaw is that the
Domestic Spying: A federal court condemns the government´s "collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen." This time it´s the Fourth Amendment the president is violating. Preventing terrorism is the most compelling reason to give government the benefit of the doubt in scrutinizing Americans´ domestic communications. But U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, in an injunction issued Monday, pointed out that the government couldn´t "cite a single instance in which analysis of the NSA´s bulk metadata collection actually stopped an imminent attack" or aided in other government time-sensitive
Spending: Now that the Senate is on board with a budget deal that busts the sequester spending caps, lawmakers can finally stop all that dreadful cost-cutting — before they hit vital projects like NASA´s 3D Pizza Printer. The bipartisan budget deal, which will add $63 billion in spending, came just in time. After all, "the cupboard is bare," as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., put it awhile back. "There´s no more cuts to make." We see what Pelosi means. In fact, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., just published a lengthy report this week showcasing all the vital things the government does that, thankfully, will be spared the ax.
No Veritas: A congressional field hearing has confirmed that not only is ObamaCare a lie agreed upon, but that "navigators" hired to guide the unwilling are telling applicants to lie and ignore the legal requirements to enroll. James O´Keefe, the videographer who helped topple the community activist group Acorn, recently released a video showing ObamaCare navigators in Dallas advising applicants to lie about their income and otherwise evade legal procedures and requirements when signing up for health insurance in the Affordable Care Act´s exchanges. That ObamaCare navigators, who receive a minimum of training and escape the
RUSH: Have you seen the news about the NSA? The federal judge, Richard Leon, has declared that the NSA sweeping phone calls is unconstitutional. Fourth Amendment. It violates search and seizure, and one of his big assertions in his opinion was that the government, despite being asked numerous times to produce evidence, has not been able to produce evidence that what they´re doing is working. They haven´t been able to produce evidence that they´re actually getting closer to capturing terrorists or other criminals, and I´m kind of conflicted because the knee-jerk reaction is to support Judge Leon and the ruling
A new Harris Poll finds that a strong majority (74 percent) of U.S. adults say they believe in God, but that´s down from the 82 percent who expressed such a belief in earlier years.Belief in miracles, heaven and other religious teachings also declined in the latest poll, as follows: --72 percent believe in miracles, down from 79 percent in 2005;--68 percent believe in heaven, down from 75 percent;--68 percent believe that Jesus is God or the Son of God, down from 72 percent;--65 percent believes in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, down from 70 percent;--64 percent believe in the survival
RUSH: I want to start in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with Andrew. Hi, Andrew. I really appreciate your patience. Thank you very much for waiting. Hello. CALLER: Thank you, sir. I don´t think the Republicans are suffering at all from PTSD. I think it´s a classic case of the Stockholm Syndrome. They´ve been held captive for such a long time by the media, scared to death of them, and along comes the rescuers in the form of the Tea Party, and instead of embracing their freedom, they turn on them in the hopes of currying favor with their captors. RUSH: Hmm. Hmm! Well, even
RUSH: I forget if it was last week or the week before, there was either a call asking my opinion or else I just launched into it based on something that happened in the news. But I was trying to explain why the Republicans were not fighting back on anything having to do with Obama and the Democrats, and I said, "´Cause I think they´re shell-shocked. I think they´ve got PTSD. I think they´re scared to death. They don´t see Obama plummeting in the polls, and if they do, they don´t believe it. They´re just shell-shocked, and this government shutdown,
RUSH: Washington Post today, Chris Cillizza. "Meet the haters. We’re talking about the voters who’ve had it with all Washington politicians: President Obama, congressional Republicans and congressional Democrats. Despite their distaste for, well, everyone, when push comes to shove, these voters are lining up squarely behind GOP candidates for Congress." So in the Washington Post today, in a piece by our old buddy Chris Cillizza, the vast majority of Republican voters are haters. If you don´t like what´s going on in Washington, if your solution is to vote Republican, you´re a hater. Remember the woman who called here two weeks
Reason´s Peter Suderman takes note of a poll result that surprises him: Obamacare has lost the uninsured. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week asked uninsured individuals whether or not they thought the law was a good idea. Just 24 percent said they thought it was. In contrast, half the uninsured polled said they thought it was a bad idea. As the Journal points out, that represents an 11 point drop in support for the law amongst the uninsured since September. The same poll also finds that 56 percent of the uninsured believe the law will have a negative effect
A relative of the New Jersey attorney who died Sunday when thieves shot and carjacked him at a shopping mall says he wants the perpetrators to die for the "selfishness of their crime." "What do I want? I want the punks responsible to pay," said Dr. Mark Schare, the uncle of Dustin Friedland. "I want them to die. I want them to get what they gave." Schare´s sharp-worded statement was aimed at assailants who approached Friedland, 30, and his wife, Jamie, in a parking garage Sunday night at Short Hills Mall, where the couple had been Christmas shopping. They shot Friedland, ordered
President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.” Though the White House did not specifically address
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
Reportage of last week´s Nelson Mandela funeral reveals clearly enough that President Obama has reached the point in his tenure where everything ceases to go right -- when even the most serious and determined efforts deteriorate into a hash, or worse, a joke. This happens to everyone in public life eventually, politicians above all. The original attraction wears thin, flaws appear more prominently, styles and opinions change. There is little the individual can do to avoid this.(snip)The Mandela funeral shows that Obama is deep into this phase of his career, and has landed on his head.
Michelle Obama has once again stepped out in her $6,800 J Mendel jacket, despite fielding a backlash last time she wore the pricey garment. [Snip] But the last time she wore the embellished garment, in July 2012 at a Buckingham Palace reception in London, political commentators took issue with the fact that she had spent so much on fashion while so many in the U.S. are suffering financially. A post on the Gateway Pundit blog remarked that the design ´cost more than the average American family makes in a month ($4,284)´. ´She does this as Americans continue to suffer through a
Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White
London – Large tapestry portraits of President Barack Obama were unveiled for guests at the U.S. Embassy in London over the weekend. The recently-installed, large-scale tapestry portraits were created by National Medal of Arts winner and renowned American painter, photographer Chuck Close. Close created the portraits by compiling and interweaving Polaroids of the president from an hour-long photo shoot done the summer before, the Washington Post reports. The portraits are nearly 8 feet tall and more than 6 feet wide, with the final piece looking like photos but feeling like textiles. Close used one photo of Obama smiling and another
John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.
On Monday, Variety reported that Fox News had once again dominated all comers I the annual ratings, not merely blowing out CNN, MSNBC and HLN, but drawing more viewers than the combined averages of the three other networks. Fox News averaged 1.774 million viewers in primetime; the other three averaged a combined 1.626 million viewers in primetime. Fox finished sixth among all basic cable companies. The addition of Megyn Kelly to primetime has been a boon for Roger Ailes and company, with Kelly up 23% in total viewers in the timeslot. No wonder CNN, which is struggling to outpace Headline
The U.S. Army War College, which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story. During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States,
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) took some shots at his fellow Republicans during Tuesday’s Senate debate over the proposed bipartisan budget deal put together by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). Joining the more moderate wing of the Republican Party, McCain declared his strong support for the deal and accused any members of the GOP who plan to vote against it of lacking “intellectual integrity.” McCain said he was supporting the bill for two reasons: One, to prevent the possibility of another government shutdown, and two, to alleviate the “devastating impact of sequestration on our military.” “The American people steadfastly
Valerie Jarrett denied being a “shadow chief of staff” to President Obama on Wednesday, insisting she never talks about work during her private time with the president and first lady. “I´m not the shadow chief of staff. I have very specific responsibilities,” Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president and a longtime family friend of the Obamas, said at a Politico breakfast. [WATCH VIDEO] Jarrett said that “people sometimes presume because I am a friend of the president and first lady” that she´s able to exert influence when the Obamas retire from the office to their residence. “There is this
