San Francisco Chronicle stands by
report that Obama recently talked
GOTV with Jeremiah Wright

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 10/26/2012 8:42:32 AM

The San Francisco Chronicle is standing by its columnist’s report that President Barack Obama recently held a get-out-the-vote teleconference with his anti-American former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. The report appeared Oct. 20 in a column by Willie Brown, the city’s former Democratic mayor and a 15-year chairman of the state assembly. The purpose of Obama’s teleconference, according to Brown, was to talk with faith leaders about ways to spur turnout among African-Americans.

~~The paper’s report comes at an awkward time for the president, who is now using GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s associations with a fellow Republican, Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, to portray Romney as unfair to women~~

The big difference is the way it is 'covered' by our so-called press.

Millennial Madness: What Happens
If Young Voters Bolt Both Parties?

Posted By: Drive- 3/24/2014 10:39:36 AM     Post Reply
When I was the age my kids are now, television networks offered three, barely distinguishable choices. Including Internet video, my kids´ options are almost infinite. I walked to a library. My kids download books. I owned a few dozen cassette tapes. Their iPods stream thousands of songs. A quarter-century ago, editors decided what news I read. My kids are their own editors and publishers. My kids are Millennials, raised in an era of rapid change and boundless amounts of information, choice and customization. Born roughly between 1981 and 2000, the Millennial Generation´s life experiences will shape where they live, how they

High court with vocally devout justices set to

There’s something that makes the current Supreme Court different from some of its recent predecessors. The justices got religion. Or at least they seem more open about their faith, appearing before devout audiences and talking more about how religion shaped their lives or guides them now. As the court this week weighs religious conviction vs. legal obligation in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act, those who study the court say the change is hard to quantify but easy to notice. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions during their

Patriotic American and U.S. Senator David Vitter (R., La.) pushed backed against the Democratic Party’s troubling pro-cancer agenda this week by defending libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, calling them “two of the most patriotic Americans on the face of the earth.” “I’ll be honest with you. My reaction is God bless the Koch brothers, they’re fighting for our freedoms,” Vitter said at an event in Shreveport, La., on Tuesday in response to a constituent’s question about the nefarious “Kotch” brothers. Evidently, that constituent is unfamiliar with the Democrats’ bitingly clever slogan: “Republicans are addicted to Koch”—pronounced “coke,” as in

The Telegraph has obtained the full communication record of MH370, including the crucial moments in the lead-up to the disappearance of the Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers. It reveals the messages relayed between the cockpit and air traffic controllers during the period when the plane is believed by investigators to have already been sabotaged. As the search continues for possible wreckage of the aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean, the transcript marks a further piece of evidence in the baffling mystery of flight MH370. It shows that – according to numerous experts – the two-way banter between Fariq Abdul

Peeling back the curtain hiding the incestuous relationship between the mainstream media and the White House, Arizona reporter Catherine Anaya revealed that “President Obama´s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing.” She found it very interesting that Mr. Carney “knows what he´s going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents and reporters also have those answers printed in front of them, because of course it helps when they´re producing their reports for later on.” This is not surprising. NY Times reporter Peter Baker wrote in 2009, “Here is the dirty little

The boom in smuggling

Posted By: Drive- 3/21/2014 1:08:54 PM     Post Reply
More than half of the cigarettes sold in New York State are smuggled in from other places to avoid the Empire State´s taxes on smokes, which have soared nearly 200 percent since 2006, according to a report issued by the conservative Tax Foundation. New York is the highest net importer of smuggled cigarettes -- illegal smokes account for 56.9 percent of the state´s total market. New York´s cigarettes tax is $4.35 per pack, the country´s highest. The situation there isn´t unique. The Tax Foundation also cites a study that found that 58.7 percent of discarded cigarettes found in five Northeastern

Ten people are unaccounted for after a fire that destroyed a motel at the Jersey shore, killing three people, authorities said Friday. Firefighters responded to the Mariner´s Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach just after 5:30 a.m. Friday. "Within five minutes, literally, it was in flame," one witness told the New Jersey Star-Ledger. Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said three males died in the blaze and eight people were injured. Several of the injured sustained serious burns, including one woman who was rescued by firefighters after she holed up in a shower to escape smoke and flames. Coronato said the search and recovery

Russell Crowe stars in Darren Aronofsky´s Bible-based epic. Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture´s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah. Whereas for a century most Hollywood filmmakers have tread carefully and respectfully when tackling biblical topics in big-budget epics aimed at a mass audience, Aronofsky has been daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention. The narrative of the global flood that wiped out almost all earthly life is the original

NEW YORK - A 14-year-old boy is in custody in connection with a shocking shooting on an MTA bus in New York City. A 39-year-old passenger died after he was shot in the head while on a B15 bus in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, authorities said. Police say the teen was on the bus near Lafayette Boulevard and Marcus Garvey Boulevard around 6:20 when he got into an argument with a rival. He began firing shots on the bus. He missed his intended target but hit the victim, who was another passenger on the bus, police said. Police recovered

Putin: no need for further

MOSCOW — There is no need for Russia to further retaliate against U.S. sanctions, President Vladimir Putin said Friday as Russia´s upper house of parliament endorsed the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Moscow made its first retaliatory shot on Thursday by banning nine U.S. officials and lawmakers from entering Russia, but Putin indicated that Russia would likely refrain from curtailing cooperation in areas such as Afghanistan. Moscow appears to hope to limit the damage from the latest U.S. and EU sanctions and avoid further Western blows.

The Freedom Tower, America’s top terror target, doesn’t have a single working surveillance camera inside — a stunning security lapse that let a New Jersey teen roam the top floors undetected for two hours, The Post has learned. The video system for 1 World Trade Center “won’t be operational until the building opens later this year,” said a source familiar with the security plan. That means there is no footage of Justin Casquejo, 16, as he slipped by a sleeping guard to the antenna of the 1,776-foot-tall building Sunday morning. “This place has a big bull’s-eye on it, and I don’t even want

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act.

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal
