    Breitbart TV ^ | 16 Apr 2014, 10:23 AM PDT | Pamela Key
    Wednesday on the "Tom Joyner Morning Show," Al Sharpton offered a curious explanation involving President Barack Obama for the meaning of Easter: "I think that the message is, no matter what the world may do to unfairly, no matter how your crucified, nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job that you can rise if you don't lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges. The story of Jesus on the cross. no matter what they humiliated him with. no matter how they mocked him he took it, because he knew he...
  • President Obama’s Bogus Voting Rights Claims

    Heritage Foundation ^ | April 16, 2014 | Hans von Spakovsky & Peter McGinley
    Last Friday, in a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference, President Obama proudly announced that the Justice Department had taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. The problem with that claim is that, since 2009, the Justice Department has taken on only 39 voting rights cases—and as former Voting Section lawyer Christian Adams points out, only 13 were related to protecting minority voting rights. And, with respect to some of the cases in which the department has been involved, it lost spectacularly—such as its false claim that South Carolina’s voter ID law was discriminatory. Perhaps...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton is back at the White House today, this time for a Holy Week prayer breakfast with President Obama and dozens of faith leaders. Sharpton’s arrival comes just two days after Obama embraced the controversial activist and former FBI informant at a New York event hosted by the liberal broadcaster. Obama used the Sharpton event to accuse Republicans of trying to reverse the 1965 Voting Rights Act and intentionally suppress black voters with state laws requiring voters to show identification. “The real voter fraud is those that try to deny our rights by making arguments about voter...

    Speaking at Al Sharpton's National Action Network convention on Friday in New York City, President Barack Obama revealed that he believes voter fraud does not exist, everyone who wants to should be able to vote, even if they cannot provide identifying documentation, and Republicans are plotting to take the franchise away from minorities. Obama, who hails from a city known for the Daley Machine and its "vote early and vote often" slogan, ripped Republicans for trying to preserve the integrity of the ballot by reducing voter fraud and requiring voter IDs. He made the accusation that there is a "well-organized...

It isn’t much of a stretch to believe that Sharpton is a liar and race pimp of the worst kind. He does little that does not benefit him directly.

He just wanted money,” Robert Curington, 72, told The Post during a two-day interview at his North Carolina home, detailing for the first time how Sharpton stepped into the FBI’s trap — and was then forced to become a federal informant.

Sharpton admitted on Tuesday that he helped the feds investigate New York Mafia figures, even making secret recordings that appeared to help bring down a mob boss. The cooperation, revealed Monday in a story on The Smoking Gun website, came at an awkward time for Sharpton, who presided over the National Action Network conference Wednesday.

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande.

He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians...

The Sharpton conference ostensibly is to "honor" the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Organizers claim that the event is not just for honoring King but for "proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change." Al Sharpton founded NAN in 1991 when he was but a community agitator in New York, long before he became an MSNBC TV host. For his work with the organization, NAN paid Sharpton nearly $250,000 in 2011. But the...

And when you were one of the leaders of welfare reform in the 1990’s, we got excoriated for saying that as a condition of welfare, people should go to work and it should be a bridge not a permanent system.

    Back in 1987, a young demagogue named Al Sharpton leapt onto the national scene, accusing a New York assistant district attorney, Steven Pagones, of raping a 15-year-old girl, Tawana Brawley. Actually, Sharpton claimed that Pagones had raped Brawley, anally raped Brawley and then scrawled the initials "KKK" on Brawley's torso in feces. "We stated openly that Steven Pagones did it," Sharpton proclaimed. "If we're lying, sue us, so we can go into court with you and prove you did it. Sue us — sue us right now." Pagones sued. Pagones won. But Sharpton never apologized and had his supporters foot...
  • ‘Professor Sharpton’ Gives GOP a Civics Lesson: ‘Did You Think We’d Ignore Your Failing Grades?’

    Al Sharpton has donned his scientist cap on more than one occasion, and, while it wasn’t as visually hilarious, put on his “professor” hat Wednesday to teach the GOP a lesson on civics. Sharpton was set off by Republican congressman Markwayne Mullin‘s gaffe that there are four branches of government, and we do not, in fact, have a three-ring government. Sharpton mock-asked, “When did they add another branch?!” He admitted it’s possible that Mullin thought the House and Senate were different branches, but instead of criticizing he grabbed his pointer and “Professor Sharpton” gave his civics lesson.

    l Sharpton is one of the greatest race hoaxers and divisive demagogues of the last half-century. Sharpton is the man whose anti-Semitic language helped stoke the flames of the 1991 Crown Heights riots that resulted in the murder of Yankel Rosenbaum; he is the man whose incitements against a white owned store in Harlem ended with one of his followers torching Freddie’s Fashion Mart, causing a fire that killed eight people; he is a liar who falsely accused a district attorney and five other innocent men of raping 15-year-old Tawana Brawley; he was the leader of the lynch mob that...

    Sarah Palin has jumped into the fray over defunding Obamacare, but Al Sharpton and his panel Monday said it’s less about the politics and more about the attention. Sharpton, Krystal Ball, and Cynthia Tucker all agreed that Palin, as well as Cruz, is in this fight partly to stand for conservative values, and mostly out of her own “megalomania and narcissism.” Sharpton said it’s “time to grab the popcorn” now that Palin has weighed in at a time when the GOP is on the “brink of its own civil war.” Tucker said Palin’s just making things worse by throwing in...
