CNN anchor Piers Morgan isn’t benefiting from much Christmas cheer, at least according to one measure: The number of signers on a petition urging the White House to deport Morgan has skyrocketed by late Tuesday afternoon to nearly 66,000 names. The petition, created last week, had 65,887 supporters around 5 P.M. Tuesday and is posted on the White House’s official petition site. It slams Morgan for comments he has made regarding gun control in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 children and six adults.
Comments: His speech is protected by Constitution he despises
Why should a LimeyRickey like Piers Jackwad have any constitutional protections, i.e. free speech? He´s NOT a citizen and therefore is not afforded the luxury of constitutional protections! Back to merry ol´ England with him.
Morgan is and always has been a raging nut case, seemingly enthralled with the percieved "perfection" of the European way, in spite of evidence that glares in the "otherwise" light. He is a liberal hack who has mananged to show the American public his forked tail - so, Good, if you don´t like what the brand is offering, turn it off- That´s how I vote - I refuse tow watch CNN- even at the DR. office (I scoff and ridicule CNN loudly when it´s on there). I don´t subscribe to liberal news papers or watch any major networks that slander my country - and I try to never shop at places that support them.
His speech may be protected. (recall that rights COME from the Almighty, our Constitution simply recognizes what was already there). So, no, we can´t throw him in jail for offensive speech. Unlike Britain. But his presence in the USA is *NOT* protected. He could be frogmarched to the docks and put on a rowboat this very afternoon and tough noogies at that. Kick the bum out. Today.
I detest Morgan but have to concede this petition is idiotic and to brag that 60.000 have signed it is even more idiotic.
There is only one effective course of action and that is to STOP WATCHING these idiots.
Stop watching the lefty channels and stop watching any clips of their shows on posted in the internet.
Bill Maher says something offensive - DONT WATCH. Saturday Night Live has that rare skit that may be mildly funny - DONT WATCH. Letterman insults some conservative woman - DONT WATCH. Springsteen, Straisand, Moore, Belafonte, Penn just DONT WATCH, DONT GO TO THEIR MOVIES, DONT LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC.
Newsbusters has been documenting the ridiculous statements made by all these clowns for years (since they were called Media Research Center). I think it is counterproductive, the solution is to ingnore them not to propagate their venom.
make no mistake - he loves this. there´s no such thing as bad publicity. no way no how would I ever add my name and contact info to a WH website. I realize we´re all under some kind of scrutiny or another, but I´ll be darned if I´m going to make it super simple for them to reach out for me...
Much as I despise boycotts, if CNN will not take action and dump him, we will need a list of pm´s sponsors. I never watch the twit so boycotting PM and CNN is meaningless but I can boycott any of his sponsors in a heartbeat. The libs did it to Rush Limbaugh so it should be a totally acceptable action against PM and CNN, right?
Mark Steyn just advised on The Rush Limbaugh Show a few minutes ago that the DC police warned David Gregory NOT to exhibit the illegal (in DC) 30-round magazine on Meet the Press last Sunday, and Gregory flouted the DC police.
Steyn said that Gregory want ´to cling´ to the magazine. LOL!
The group of idiots who dreamt up the idea of the general public being able to start petions on the WH website and setting a pretty low bar of 25,000 signatures in order to receive a response from the WH are probably living off cat food and the generosity of strangers by now.
BTW, has there been a response from the WH yet? Didn´t think so, and I don´t expect one.
Give him a one-way ticket on a freighter bound for Europe and then just before the border between Britain and international waters, dump him out in a row boat and a life jacket and he can row his way to British soil.
Don´t sign anything the WH puts out. They like seeing us waist our time with useless devices like this. Then one gives your name and whatev and they can harass the heck out of you or have some hacks do it. Don´t fall for it. CNN only has 184,000 viewers at night. This fop is just getting eyeballs. We are played for fools.
WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A secret surveillance drone is under development by Northrop Grumman, reports Aviation Week. The unmanned aircraft is still classified and is being tested at the notorious Area 51 in the Nevada desert. There’s been no official word from either the Pentagon or Northrup, but Aviation Week says the drone is called the RQ-180 and will go into service in the Air Force in 2015. The drone is equipped with stealth technology, advance radar, radio-frequency sensors and cameras, says the trad
BANGUI, Central African Republic — African peacekeepers fired into the air Thursday in Central African Republic’s chaotic capital, trying to disperse a mob bent on hunting down and killing Muslims taking refuge in a church compound. The unrest in Bangui underscored the rage and uncertainty that remains in the capital of the Central African Republic, despite the arrival of 1,600 French soldiers and patrols by regional African peacekeepers. The two forces are seeking to stabilize this impoverished, now lawless, country after more than 500 people were killed last week in sectarian bloodshed.
There are two Popes. One is Francis as he actually is: spiritual shepherd of the Catholic faithful, the man chosen to defend and articulate the beliefs of the Church. The other is Francis as the liberal establishment would have him be: a crusading humanist on the verge of making the Catholic Church socially acceptable at Manhattan dinner parties. Guess which Pope Francis Time Magazine just made Man of the Year? The Catholic writer Billy Newton has done a great run down of why Time´s Pope is not the real Pope, with two killer observations. First, the magazine calls him The
Turns out nobody likes this budget deal except the press, which loves bipartisan agreements, no matter how puny. The tone of the coverage is as follows: Finally, they’re acting like grownups. Finally, a return to “regular order” (a legislative term no one cares about but which means doing a budget for a year rather than these endless stopgap measures). Finally, both sides have agreed to compromise. Finally, no danger of a government shutdown. All true. But let’s not get carried away: the agreement accomplishes very little. Maybe journalists are just relieved they don’t have to work over the Christmas holidays on another up-to-the-brink
A South African government minister has said that "a mistake happened" in the hiring of a sign language interpreter accused of gesticulating nonsense during the Nelson Mandela memorial service. Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu said that officials have tried to track down the company that provided Thamsanqa Jantjie but that the owners "have vanished into thin air". Earlier on Thursday Jantjie claimed he is qualified but was hallucinating and hearing voices and said he is receiving treatment for schizophrenia. Millions of TV viewers saw Jantjie interpreting speeches by Barack Obama and other global leaders at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg. His gestures baffled and angered deaf
If it seemed like cable news spent more time covering President Barack Obama’s handshake with Cuban President Raul Castro and “selfie” with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt than they did on the substance of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, that’s because they did. An analysis put together by Media Matters reveals that on Tuesday night, December 10th the big three cable news networks spent an average 62% of their Mandela-themed segments focusing on either the handshake or the selfie, with 38% of that time spent discussing Mandela’s legacy and the rest of the memorial service. CNN appeared to be the worst offender, dedicating
Nearly 365,000 people selected a private health plan on state Obamacare markets through the end of November — a sign that people are flocking to the patched-up federal website, HealthCare.gov — although the new pace falls short of long-range projections for an inaugural sign-up period that ends in March. The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday announced a total of 364,682 enrollees in private health plans from all states in Oct. 1-Nov. 30. The release came shortly before agency Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was slated to testify before Congress about the state of the health care law’s implementation. The new report
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
