  • Will Obama Appoint Radical Activist To Enforce Nation's Laws? (Perez)

    Leadership: Just when you thought the president couldn't pick anyone more radical than Eric Holder as attorney general, he's poised to name ultraradical race-baiter Thomas Perez. Holder's activism is no secret. But Perez is even more extreme. Worse, he's a liar and possible perjurer. Yet he's reportedly President Obama's pick to replace Holder as America's top cop enforcing the nation's laws. The Beltway media are reporting that Perez, now serving as labor secretary, is the front-runner for the key post — and he didn't deny it when reporters asked him about it at a recent speech. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 9/29/2014 | Larry O'Connor
    Any pretense that President Obama would let justice take its course in Ferguson, MO without his use of the bully pulpit of the presidency to influence or sway events on the ground has been completely thrown out the window. Saturday night, Obama firmly "took sides" in the Michael Brown case during a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. Obama called the shooting an event that exposed the racial divide in America and "scars the hearts of our children."Fox News reports on Obama's speech and quotes the President using language that could easily be part of an Al Sharpton monologue...

    President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November's midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don't believe in government to begin with, Obama said. "It doesn't have to be that way," Obama said during a barbecue in Purchase, New York. "There...

    On this weekend's broadcast of "Fox News Sunday," Rev. Jesse Jackson and Dr. Ben Carson debated the civil unrest after Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. Jackson became defensive when host Chris Wallace's first question was why he had called the shooting a "state execution," answering, "We need to have a sense of justice. All we do know about Michael Brown is really he was shot unarmed six times." “It seems to me that the police act as judge, jury, and executioner, and even on the worse scenario, if [Brown] hit [Wilson] on the face, does...

    Neurosurgeon and rising GOP star Ben Carson phoned in to Fox News Sunday (due to technical difficulties) this morning and debated Reverend Jesse Jackson over whether race was the predominant factor in the shooting death of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, MO. Jackson had called Brown’s death a “state execution” and linked it to a pattern of law enforcement violence against African Americans, violence that almost always goes unpunished. Carson responded that the incarceration and violence in black communities was largely a matter of personal responsibility, not racial disparities. “If you take race out of the issue altogether...

    The late media critic Edwin Diamond once notably quipped that to the American news media, "10,000 deaths in Nepal equals 100 deaths in Wales equals 10 deaths in West Virginia equals one death next door." When it comes to race relations, a similar rule applies. 400,000 civilians have been murdered in Darfur, but one death of a black man in Missouri, allegedly due to white police brutality, is infinitely more newsworthy. The national media are currently obsessed with Michael Brown's killing by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri, just as they obsessed over Trayvon Martin's killing in Sanford, Florida. Our media...

    America is on trial," said Rev. Al Sharpton from the pulpit of Greater St Mark's Family Church in Ferguson, Missouri. At issue, the shooting death of Michael Brown, Saturday a week ago, on the main street of that city of 22,000, a neighbor community to Jennings, where this writer lived in the mid-1960s. Brown, an 18-year-old African-American, was shot multiple times by Darren Wilson, a 28-year-old white police officer with an unblemished record in six years on the force in Jennings and Ferguson. From his patrol car, Wilson ordered Brown out of the street where he was walking and blocking...

    Every big-city mayor and police chief in America — including the guys from Chicago — are watching what is happening outside of St. Louis, in the town of Ferguson. Ferguson was once a white suburb. Now it is predominantly black. And it's hurting. A young African-American man, Michael Brown, is dead, shot by police. In the days since there have been anger, rioting, looting and, of course, the politics of race. And the thug behavior of the looters accomplishes something else: It helps lock Americans into various camps from which we're comfortable listing grievances and condemning the behavior of others.

    “Post-racial” was the media buzzword from the moment Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election until well into his first term. We were told we were ringing in a new day in America, one where we finally started moving past the racism that stained our nation’s history. But we haven’t. In fact, we’ve regressed. A nation that is nowhere near what it was in the Democrat-created Jim Crow days is being portrayed as just as bad as it ever was for two simple reasons that are as old as time itself: money and power. After twice electing a black president,...

But he isn't sure it will have staying power in the public consciousness. Speaking on CBS's Face the Nation, Powell said cases like Martin's "blaze across the midnight sky" and are forgotten. The first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and first black secretary of state, Powell says America has come a long way toward racial equality 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

    It’s hard to describe the days following last weekend’s Zimmerman verdict as educational, but we have surely learned some things. Some are uplifting, some downright depressing. But for what they are worth, here are my ten top takeaways from a crazy week: 1. Sometimes, even in these cynical times, a jury gets it right. Here in the era of O.J. and the $3 million hot coffee civil suit, it is easy to grow jaded about the failings of our human jury system. But on rare occasions, under the harsh glare and pressure of public scrutiny, jurors will gather and surround...

They named the show "Politics Nation" and positioned the nightly broadcast as a left-leaning political show focusing on national politics as a natural lead-in to "Hardball." It was a well-orchestrated PR strategy to distance Sharpton from his controversial and odious past as a race-baiting advocate for proven liars Tawana Brawley and the antagonist in the Duke Lacrosse case.

Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school, and a pioneer of "critical race theory," which insisted, controversially, on reading issues of race and power into legal scholarship. His protest that spring was occasioned by Harvard's denial of tenure to a black woman professor, Regina Austin, at a time when only three of the law school's professors were black and only...

The New York City-based black activist, preacher and former presidential candidate launched his MSNBC-TV talk show, "PoliticsNation," on Monday, August 29, six days after the network tapped him for the 6-7 P.M. (EST) weeknight slot vacated in July by Cenk Uygur. The announcement wasn't unexpected. Sharpton frequently had substituted for Uygur. And MSNBC's parent company, Comcast Corp., for years has been a generous donor to Sharpton's nonprofit group, National Action Network (NAN). The elevation of Sharpton, with a long history of demagoguery and financial chicanery, to top-tier...

    Cable network gives Obama ally his own show for election yearMSNBC is looking to please its friends at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The No. 3 cable-news network announced Tuesday that it would give rabble-rouser Al Sharpton the 6 p.m. show, “PoliticsNation.” That time slot opened in July when former host Cenk Uygur stormed out over being told by MSNBC President Phil Griffin that “people in Washington” were concerned with his tone. As Mr. Uygur told CNN’s Howard Kurtz, “They’re concerned that we’re too aggressive against Democrats.” Mr. Griffin doesn’t have to worry about receiving complaints regarding a known Obama administration ally....

        On Wednesday, the Commerce Department announced that durable goods orders dropped 3.6 percent, worse than economists’ expectations for a 2.2 percent fall. They also announced that driven by the lack of buyers, the price of new homes continued to deflate. Thursday, it was announced that weekly first-time unemployment claims rose to 424,000 (in February that number was 375,000 — lower, but still very high).If you believe Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC), corporations stopped buying durable goods, home buyers put their plans on hold, and people quit their jobs on purpose — all to make the president look bad. Why would...
  • Obama’s Easter Sunday Pastor Rails Against Racist Talk Radio (Compares Rush to KKK!)

    The media stood and applauded yesterday when President Obama and his family went to church for Easter. Yesterday’s visit to Shiloh Baptist Church in D.C. shows again that Obama really is a man of faith, the reports seem to suggest. But while the media rushed to report on the first family’s attendance of the predominately black congregation (and the family’s outfits), what it failed to mention was the views held by the church’s pastor. And while those views are not delivered in the same fiery manner as Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, they sound eerily familiar. What views are those?...

    Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) is once again drawing attention for making controversial comments to the media, after the told the Arab television network Alhurra that the GOP won in November because many Americans don't want a black president. In the interview, which has been flagged by the Weekly Standard and The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, Moran said that Democratic losses in the 2010 elections ... ... happened because of the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. The Civil War happened because the Southern states, particularly the slaveholding states, didn't want to see a president...

    How can CBS News explain this photoshopped picture? What possible explanation could they have? Accompanying their election coverage on their website, CBS published this photoshopped picture of a half black/half white President Obama with Republicans and Democrats on either side of him as if to say he is split between the two. Needless to say Obama's white side is on the side of the GOP's John Boehner and Eric Cantor. His black half is on the side of Harry Reid and Charles Schumer. Are they saying that Obama will have to act white with Republicans? How could anyone think that...
  • NAACP President Says Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ Crowd Wouldn’t Applaud MLK Speech

    Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, told Eyeblast.tv at Al Sharpton’s ‘Reclaiming the Dream’ rally at Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C.– a counter protest to Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ rally held on the same day from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech–that if you were to read King’s speech to the crowd in attendance at Beck’s rally, no one would applaud.
