DOJ investigates Norfolk
parade float critical of Obama

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 12:32:17 PM

The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama. A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.” The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” The Omaha World-Herald reported Friday that the Department of Justice sent

Comments:
So, when Saturday Night Live does this kind of "sketch" on mostly GOP presidents on national TV, it´s humor, but 0bama and his joyless goons want to stir the tar and feathers on free speech... again.

All disrespect is meant for Zippy, not for the office.
Remember when the left wingers were saying, "I support the military just not the mission"?

Where in the Constitution does it say you can´t be a racist or disrespect the office of the presidency?

And - what´s racist about an outhouse? Don´t black people use "the facilities"?

Eric Holder is guilty of harrassment of private citizens, and abuse of power, wanting to deny free speech, which he totally confuses with political correctness.
I can call Obama a sheethead all day long and to Eric the Red, it is racism...to me and other intelligent Americans it is freedom of speech.
Let´s face it, whites are all racist to him, because they breathe.

No, the worst show of disrespect for the office of the presidency that Americans have ever seen is when the Democrats first allowed a serial rapist and criminal to occupy the White House; and then an illegal alien, gay, Muslim Marxist who obviously hates both Christians and Americans. The left has no problem at all with racism and disrespect for the presidency and other American institutions, as long as it is them doing it.

It is no secret that TV viewing encourages mindless snacking, but it turns out that this effect may be particularly pronounced when it comes to watching certain types of shows. A new study has found that people watching a Hollywood action movie ate twice the amount of snacks as those watching an interview program. The study, published Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Internal Medicine, included 94 undergraduate students who were split in three groups to watch 20 minutes of TV. Each group was randomly assigned to watch either an excerpt from "The Island," an action flick starring Ewan McGregor

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, told a crowd of 3,000 at a conservative summit in Dallas that Americans fighting with Islamic State militants should be exiled from the country saying, “we need to not let into this country any American who is fighting with ISIS.” But some conservative politicians say that banishing American jihadists doesn’t go far enough, and that those who leave the country to fight for militant groups like the Islamic State, Hamas, or al Qaeda should be stripped of their citizenship. On Friday, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in neighboring New Hampshire, called for

Detroit - In a trial set to open in the federal courthouse here on Tuesday, nothing short of this city’s future is at stake. If Judge Steven W. Rhodes approves a blueprint drawn up by Detroit officials to eliminate more than $7 billion of its estimated $18 billion in debts and to invest about $1.5 billion into the city’s now dismal services, it will mark the beginning of the end of the nation’s largest-ever municipal bankruptcy. The outcome will set this troubled city’s new course for the coming decades, perhaps longer. In deciding whether the city’s plan is equitable, feasible and in the best interest of creditors, Judge Rhodes will send significant messages

The man arrested after Philip Seymour Hoffman died on Feb. 2 from a lethal combination of cocaine, heroin and other drugs avoided jail time on Thursday. Robert Vineberg was never charged with any connection to Hoffman´s death, but there were connections between the two. Vineberg had said that he and Hoffman were friends, but had lost touch in recent years. Some speculated that he was Hoffman´s drug dealer, though he insisted that he did not provide the drugs that killed the actor. The 58-year-old Canadian musician pleaded guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday to drug possession and faces five

Downton Abbey is getting extra political this year: the fifth season of the hit period drama takes place in 1924, the year of Britain’s first Labour party government and, consequently, a year of dramatic social change at the Crawley estate. Cast members such as Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter and Laura Carmichael are all returning, while guest-stars Anna Chancellor and Richard E. Grant will introduce a few new characters into the mix. Stray water bottles, however, are not expected to return.

David Cameron is expected to reject calls to force terror suspects to relocate, after being warned that it could breach their human rights. The Prime Minister will announce a series of emergency measures to tackle extremism, amid growing concerns about the threat posed by British jihadis returning from Iraq and Syria. However, it is “very unlikely” that he will reintroduce powers that would force jihadists to move away from their homes, despite requests from both police and security services. The Government has been advised that the move could be subject to legal challenge, and the measures have also been opposed by

In the wake of the televised beheading of American journalist James Foley, there have been urgent calls among some in the media for an intensified U.S. military response to the Islamic State group — also known as ISIL — responsible for Foley’s gruesome murder and a host of other barbaric atrocities across northern Iraq and Syria. There is also, understandably, some alarm, because ISIL has racked up a string of tactical victories in the Sunni-dominated regions of Iraq, culminating in the taking of the giant hydroelectric dam near Mosul. The principal complaint among the armchair quarterbacks is that the U.S. failed to neutralize the growing

Germany will send high-end rifles, tank-busting weapons and armored vehicles to aid Kurdish fighters battling Islamic extremists in Iraq, officials said Sunday. Germany´s defense minister said the arms would be sent in three shipments, starting next month, and would initially be enough to equip a brigade of 4,000 Peshmerga fighters. "This is in our security interest," Ursula von der Leyen told reporters in Berlin. Germany joins other European countries who have pledged to provide arms to the Kurds fighting the Islamic State group that has swept into northern Iraq in recent months. In total, the shipments will include 8,000 G36 assault rifles

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious.

That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
