MSNBC Host Incredulous After
MLK’s Son Says It’s ‘Important To
Be Engaged With The Tea Party’

Daily Caller, by Brendon Bordelon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/9/2014 9:00:52 PM

Martin Luther King III, son of famed civil rights advocate Martin Luther King Jr., raised serious eyebrows on MSNBC when he claimed it’s important to engage in dialogue with political opponents — even the tea party. King appeared Friday on MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” on location in Atlanta as part of the liberal network’s “Growing Hope” series. Co-host Toure asked the civil rights heir if he thinks “the modern Democratic Party does enough to earn the overwhelming support that it gets for black people? Is it taking black people for granted in a way?” King largely agreed with Toure’s point, but

The son-and-heir also thinks that the Tea Party is masking what he believes is their racial animus against Obama with complaints about policy.

The Tea Party doesn´t care that Obama is black; they don´t like that he´s "red"--as in socialist.

The current dhim party is doing a splendid job of upholding the legacy of the Old Dem Party: slavers, Ku-Kluxers and Jim Crowers. The beautiful thing about being a liberal is never having to acknowledge your history OR face current reality. They are in effect, children....nasty, selfish feral children.

Feinstein on Schweitzer’s Prostitute
Comment: ‘He’s Got a Large Mouth’
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article

Former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer stepped in it last week when he said in a National Journal that interview outgoing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) set off his gaydar, an interview that also contained some unflattering remarks about Senator Dianne Feinstein, whom he likened to a streetwalker. On State of the Union Sunday morning, host Candy Crowley let Feinstein take a swing. “My first reaction was I laughed, to tell you the truth,” Feinstein said. “He’s clearly got a rather large mouth; all sorts of things come out. I think that’s really too bad, but that’s the way it

Jon Karl to Cheney: Are You
Accusing Obama of ‘Treason’?

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl asked former Vice President Dick Cheney if his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week, in which Cheney and daughter Liz accused President Barack Obama of wanting to take America “down a notch,” was tantamount to calling Obama a traitor. “It almost seems like you’re accusing the president of treason here,” Karl said, “saying he’s intentionally bringing America down a notch.” While adding that he intended “no disrespect” to Obama, Cheney launched into a comprehensive critique of the president’s foreign policy, which he

Pirate Bill and the de Bluesios:

He told taxpayers to walk the plank — and now he’s dressing the part. Mayor Bill de Blasio suited up as a pirate for Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade on Saturday — one day after pushing through a massive $75 billion city budget. Clutching a sword and sporting a skull-and-crossbones cap, Buccaneer Bill channeled his inner booty bandit as he marched alongside his family of blue-painted scallywags at the annual parade. His scoundrel-of-the-sea costume dripped with irony, critics charged. “You could call it a pirate theory. It’s finding a way to reach into the pockets of people who have worked hard

White House wants to monitor

WASHINGTON — After getting battered by critics for failing to confront a full-blown crisis at the US border, the White House rolled out a new plan to stem the flood of women and children crossing illegally that included ankle bracelets to monitor the migrants. Other measures announced Friday would add judges, lawyers, and asylum officers to quickly process the human tide that has overwhelmed the immigration service and Border Patrol. Central American nations also would receive nearly $100 million in funding to help combat the problem. “We are surging our enforcement resources,” said Obama’s domestic policy adviser Cecilia Muñoz.

The town was pretty empty except for tourists Friday afternoon, but the Press Club bar was packed and loud. Even with my hearing aids tucked away in my purse, I hardly missed a word. Jack the bartender turned away from the tap and pointed me to an empty booth as a sweaty fellow who had just quickly downed his vodka on the rocks lamented that Americans now had little confidence in the news media. Twenty-two percent expressed some confidence in the newspapers; 18% in TV news, and 19% in the internet. “I remember when we used to make fun of

Gun Control Advocate Biden

First it was the president, and now Vice President Joe Biden was caught playing with toy guns while trying to convince us he is a champion of gun control. The Washington Post photographed Biden playing with a squirt gun near the US Naval Observatory today with a group of children. The publication posted the photo both on Instagram and Twitter: (Tweet photo) While squirt guns are obviously harmless, the image of Biden wielding these toy weapons may not exactly be a friendly one to gun control activists who are hoping for the Obama administration to pursue an anti-gun agenda.

The emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials are gone forever. Therefore any more complaints about it are nothing but Republican nitpicking. Case closed. That pretty much sums up the attitude of Politico writer Rachel Bade whose Wednesday article title pretty much sums up what she portrays as the futility of any more investigation into retrieving those missing emails, "Sources: Lois Lerner’s emails likely gone forever." Got that? Or so she seems to hope. However, her writing off the possibility of ever finding those emails elicited a tidal wave of response from Politico readers with over 21,000 comments, many of

Gender loses its impact with the young

They´re young. They like things their way. They don´t like stereotypes and steer clear of conformity. Because young people ages 34 and younger are legions larger than the dominant-until-now-Baby Boom generation, their likes and dislikes command lots of attention. High on their list is gender identity — a concept they´re increasingly resisting. "Gender stereotypes are conformity," says Jamie Gutfreund, chief strategy officer of The Intelligence Group, a consumer insights and strategy group based in Los Angeles whose summer/fall 2013 report about gender paints a vivid portrait of younger generations´ attitudes. The survey reveals that

Black voter turnout important

WASHINGTON – Black voters in the South could be key to victories for incumbent senators trying to hold onto their seats in Mississippi and Louisiana, political experts say. Much of that impact will depend on whether enough blacks show up at the polls in Mississippi Tuesday or in Louisiana in the fall. Both races are among the most competitive in the country.(Snip) Political experts say it is a balancing act for the incumbents, particularly in the conservative South, to court black voters who could help shore up a win, but be careful not to alienate white voters. "That's always been the delicate game in Southern politics," said Joshua Stockley,

Without fanfare, Obama advances
transgender rights

SAN FRANCISCO- President Barack Obama, who established his bona fides as a gay and lesbian rights champion when he endorsed same-sex marriage, has steadily extended his administration´s advocacy to the smallest and least accepted band of the LGBT rainbow: transgender Americans. With little of the fanfare or criticism that marked his evolution into the leader Newsweek nicknamed "the first gay president," Obama became the first chief executive to say "transgender" in a speech, to name transgender political appointees and to prohibit job bias against transgender government workers. Also in his first term, he signed hate crime

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — The nation´s most populous prison system, facing legal actions and criticism about inmates having to endure oppressive Texas summer heat, is looking to make conditions a bit more bearable at seven state lockups by installing cooling systems similar to those seen on the sidelines of early-season football games. Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials insist the new cooling devices are not in response to numerous lawsuits alleging triple-digit temperature readings inside prison buildings are improperly cruel punishment and have led to inmates´ deaths.

HOUSTON, Texas--Thousands of illegal immigrants--most of whom are from Central America--continue to cross the U.S.-Mexico border each day, but there are many who never complete the dangerous journey north because they run out of money. The trip from Central America can be a life-threatening one, but rumors of "amnesty" have only caused more immigrants to make it to the U.S. at any cost. Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas that smugglers typically charge hopeful foreigners hundreds of dollars to take them from their home countries to the

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise. The following is a refresher of major domestic and foreign policy developments that, apparently, were news to the White House. 1. Islamist militants gaining in Iraq

The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday. The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways." It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama´s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants. "Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.

First Lady Michelle Obama recently drew on her personal experience as a parent to justify her vastly unpopular intervention into the public school lunch program: Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right.Our pediatrician had to pull me aside and point out some things that were going wrong. I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have

Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary. On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

Mitt Romney, seen as too stiff and robotic to win over enough voters to claim the presidency in 2012, is undergoing his latest reboot, trying to become the Republican Party´s elder statesman in an Image overhaul different from his predecessors who lost their bids for the White House. Twenty years ago, Romney was a would-be giant killer, conservatives´ best hope to defeat liberal icon Sen. Ted Kennedy in 1994. Then he became the savior of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah, turned moderate Massachusetts governor. In 2012, he was a presidential candidate never fully embraced by his party. And now, he´s

A woman who parked her car on a highway to rescue ducklings has been found guilty of causing the deaths of a motorcyclist and his daughter who slammed into her vehicle. Emma Czornobaj was convicted by a jury on Friday on two counts of criminal negligence causing death, a charge that carries a maximum life sentence, and two counts of dangerous driving causing death, which comes with a maximum of 14 years in jail. The 25-year-old was charged in the deaths of Andre Roy, 50, and his daughter Jessie, 16. She wiped away tears when the verdict was delivered to
