    Roseanne Barr said she "horribly" regrets sending tweets that many called racist, in an emotional interview released over the weekend. The actress talked to her friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach last month for his podcast after she was fired and her popular ABC series was canceled. The inside story of how ABC fired Roseanne Barr [snip] The rebooted "Roseanne" was pulled May 29 after a series of bizarre tweets Barr sent. In one, she wrote about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Barr appeared to be sobbing as she told Boteach...

    Roseanne Barr says the tweet that got her sitcom Roseanne canceled – the one likening former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to a Planet of the Apes character – was not only not racist, but was a condemnation of anti-semitism. “Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes,” Barr tweeted tonight. “It was about anti-semitism. That is what my tweet referred to – the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.” (The Twilight Zone creator wrote the script for the 1968 film, an adaptation of Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel). In Barr’s original tweet that prompted...
  • CNN features ‘culture critic’ who says all Trump voters are racist, no exceptions

    CNN guest Michaela Angela Davis, a self-proclaimed “cultural critic,” called all 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump racist. No exceptions, not even the minorities. Davis, the rumored daughter of former Black Panther Angela Davis, made the blanket generalization while discussing comedian Roseanne Barr’s firing after she mocked former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett on Twitter. Like other liberals, Davis immediately blamed President Trump for Roseanne’s tweets, as if he personally tweeted them from his own phone. “He’s made it more popular to be openly racist,” Davis explained. “Tens of millions of people voted for him after he showed...

    With Every Year of Your Life, You Leave History Behind, Good or Bad and the Truth Gets Revealed as the Time Goes On. What legacy will you leave? One the world will smile about, or one that puts a black cloud above your head? Roseanne Barr’s racially charged Twitter attack on Valerie Jarrett should not immunize former President Barack Obama’s closest confidante from having to explain why she helped cover up and therefore enabled the biggest charity fraud ever, the Clinton Foundation. The process begins with asking why did Jarrett and Obama push former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for...

    Dear Valerie Jarrett, You smugly describe Roseanne Barr’s firing from ABC as a “teachable moment”. Exactly what will it teach? And to whom? “Education” implies free will and choice. Obama’s administration was all about coercion. Whether it was socialized medicine, opening America’s borders via executive fiat to give your party more power, seizing control of the Internet, threatening to raise taxes by executive order or threatening to imprison people who disagree with your party on climate change or Islam — it was all about coercion. Coercion and education are opposites, Ms. Jarrett. If nothing else, you should be intelligent enough...

    President Donald Trump wants to create a safe public space for ugly, unvarnished, unambiguous racism, which he knows he can exploit for political advantage. This cynical and destructive ploy must not be allowed to succeed. But since Tuesday, there has been not a word of censure for Barr's vile "joke" portraying Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser to President Barack Obama, as the result if "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby." Disney pulled the plug on 'Roseanne.' It's on the rest of us to pull the plug on racism Disney pulled the plug on 'Roseanne.' It's on...

    The squat brick buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who can’t afford to live anywhere else. But it’s not safe to live here. About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale – a...

    And on the third day, there was contrition.Roseanne Barr is seeking an opportunity to personally call those she’s insulted on Twitter. No, not all of them — who has that kind of time? — but at least to phone three people she attacked leading up to ABC canceling her sitcom. Namely, George Soros, Valerie Jarrett, and Michelle Wolf. Attempting to also get phone numbers for Jarrett, Michelle and GS to personally apologize to them tho I disagree with their politics. I was still wrong 2 dehumanize them-they r not my enemy, harboring hate & anger is my enemy. I can...

    The day after ABC pulled the plug on her No. 1 show over a racist tweet, Roseanne Barr returned to Twitter with a vengeance. The embattled comic hinted she may challenge the cancellation, tweeting to her fans Wednesday, "you guys make me feel like fighting back. I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U [sic]." Barr created a firestorm this week when she posted a tweet likening former Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Barr originally said her tweet about Jarrett was "indefensible" and begged for forgiveness, reports CBS News correspondent...

    Roseanne Barr lost her new television show. Barr, in a tweet about Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, said of Jarrett: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." The comedian deleted the offensive tweet, but the damage was irreversible. The reaction was swift. The Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted: "The comparison ... of ... Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!" The Disney-owned ABC issued the following statement: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show." Barr left Disney little choice....

    Jarrett called the attacks a “teaching moment” in a clip from an MSNBC special on race relations that airs Tuesday night. “I’m fine,” Jarrett said. “I’m worried about all the people out there who don’t have a circle of friend and followers who come right to their defense, the person who’s walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or want to cross the street. Or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk as we call it.” Jarrett continued,...

    A disturbing reminder of who our President chose to serve as his co-president — and why. Barack Obama’s closest and most influential adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has never been an enigma. She was, after all, the person most responsible for bringing the revolutionary communist Van Jones into the Administration six years ago, so her bona fides as a radical extremist have long been obvious to anyone who wasn’t afraid to notice. But a newly released report from Judicial Watch, which examines key FBI documents related to Jarrett’s many family ties to hardcore Communists, brings bold color to what previously were gray...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones blamed the ”moral collapse inside of our political system” for Roseanne Barr’s derogatory tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Jones said, “Some things apparently are more important than money, even to a big corporation like ABC-Disney, and that is very heartening because we’ve been in a moral freefall for at least three years. To my point of view, one of the great things is — it is, in fact, important that red-state America be better represented in the media. But they can have a...

    A network TV show rolls out with a favorable treatment of a Trump supporter, replete with plot developments that portray middle American values (and foibles) without the ridicule usually heaped upon them by Hollywood. It couldn’t last. But no one figured it would be a suicide. The epitaph for the “Roseanne” TV reboot will read: born 2018, died 2018. Cause of death: the star’s inability to understand one basic fact, and it’s not the one you might think, about watching what you post on Twitter. Liberals can post whatever hateful slime they wish, with few if any career consequences. No,...

    Valerie Jarrett was born as Valerie Bowman on November 14, 1956, to American parents in Shiraz, Iran. Following is some vital information about several key, extremely radical influences in Jarrett's life. Jarrett's Father Valerie Jarrett's father—an American-born physician named James Bowman (1923-2011)—worked as a pathologist and geneticist at a children’s hospital in Shiraz as part of a U.S. aid program to assist developing countries. He resided in Chicago from approximately 1947-53, precisely when Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist journalist who would later serve as a mentor to a young Barack Obama, launched his Communist Party-line newspaper, the Chicago Star. Bowman...

    After a racist tweet by Roseanne Barr that created an outcry online, reruns of the Roseanne revival scheduled to air on Viacom networks Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT will be pulled from their respective schedules. Roseanne reruns will be canceled on the three channels starting Wednesday, a Viacom spokesperson said.

    “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. “The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016,” read a story in the May 21 edition of The Wall Street Journal. So much for those who dismissed charges of Obama administration infiltration of Donald Trump’s campaign as paranoid fantasy. Defenders of the Obama intelligence and law enforcement apparat have had to fall back on the argument that this infiltration was...

    ... If Obama ran every decision past Jarrett, the decision to plant spies in the Trump campaign certainly was among the most important. Obama's legacy was important to Jarrett, perhaps even more important than to Obama himself. She had to preserve it and ensure that the fundamental transformation of America continued. If Hillary could not win, Trump must be destroyed. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich also finds it inconceivable that the spying operation was launched without Jarrett signing off on it: ... Former press secretary Ari Fleischer agrees that such an operation could have been authorized only with the full...

    Somehow the former commander-in-chief is largely absent from the political spying drama. President Donald Trump tweets today: “Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true - all time biggest political scandal!” And what does the man who was serving at the time as the FBI’s ultimate boss have to say about all this? Perhaps it’s a good moment to get the whole story from our 44th President. He...
