How Al Sharpton is using Obama, Ferguson
and MSNBC to boost his influence

Fox News, by Howard Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/25/2014 7:12:41 AM

Al Sharpton is again working both sides of the street, and it’s paying off for him.As he’s inserted himself into the tense situation in Ferguson, he’s had an assist from none other than the president of the United States.And he continues to bask in the spotlight at MSNBC, where he uses his nightly cable show to advance the causes he fights for as a civil rights activist. But these two roles are increasingly coming into conflict. It happened last year with the killing of Trayvon Martin, and it’s happening again with the death of Michael Brown. Sharpton is scheduled to deliver the

He may be influencing the few MSNBC viewers, but way too many people see him as an attention whore, lying weasel that he is.

That´s just my opinion of course...

Maybe the drive-by media should contact Steven Pagones. He was the Assistant District Attorney in Dutchess County, New York who was accused in 1987 by Tawana Brawley of raping her. It was all a LIE, of course, which cost Pagones years of grief and his first marriage.

Sharpton is Obama without the fancy Harvard Law Degree. They are of the same mindset. Blacks are always innocent. Whites are always guilty. The world owes them. These are the ties that bind these two charlatans together. Obama has just climbed up higher on the ladder, but he´s giving a hands up to his like-minded buddy.

A question every patriotic, loyal American should be asking Bill Gates and the MSNBC Board of Directors---Why are you paying this seditious race-baiting racketeer who belongs in Sing Sing, Alfred C. Sharpton, Jr., a substantial seven figures annually to spew his racial hatred across the airwaves of America, seven days a week?

If we ran a contest for the world’s most despicable human being, Al Sharpton would have a good chance to win. Only in America today can someone fan the flames of race riot and then the same day hurry back to his so-called news program to cover the results.

Al Sharpton is the modern version of a snake oil salesman. But instead of selling useless potions to cure cancer or acne to hobnailed-booted rustics he´s selling the promise of unearned esteem and cheap grace to a group of inner-city rubes.

Thank you poster #2 for mentioning Pagones. And let me add, 1) that hoax ate up the entire civil rights enforcement budget for NYS that year, meaning any genuine civil rights violations were ignored 2) the Freddy´s Fashion Mart riot Sharpton incited that resulted in seven deaths including that of an African American young man only 22 years old 3) the openly and unapologetcially racist Korean boycott that Sharpton led back on 1990. 4) the Carribean small landlord that Sharpton drove out of business. Sharpton is a life long criminal with blood on his hands.

Al Sharpton is a lowlife of unique despicable nature. He walks like a man who talks like a pimp, ruins lives and never been held accountable for the Tawana Brawley mess that included destroying a man´s life. He had no more concern for Mr. Pagones than he has for the white policeman who shot Brown. Truth is unimportant as long as this snake slime has his repulsive face on camera as he spews his filth.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday that the death of British aid worker Alan Henning at the hands of ISIS was "absolutely abhorrent" and "unforgivable." Britain must work with its allies to do "everything it can" to defeat ISIS in the region and at home, he said. "What we see with this organization is there´s no level of depravity to which they will not sink. No appeals made any difference," he said.

The huge cyberattack on JPMorgan Chase that touched more than 83 million households and businesses was one of the most serious computer intrusions into an American corporation. But it could have been much worse.Questions over who the hackers are and the approach of their attack concern government and industry officials. Also troubling is that about nine other financial institutions — a number that has not been previously reported — were also infiltrated by the same group of overseas hackers, according to people briefed on the matter.

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Something Is Rotten in the Secret Service

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov.

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
