Former Bush Press Secretary Dana Perino continued the weekend’s primary conservative argument on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, when she asked why President Barack Obama chose the Trayvon Martin shooting as a subject for a national address (albeit an impromptu one) but not any other crimes—specifically, the March shooting of a toddler in Stone Mountain, Georgia during a robbery attempt by two black teens. “When a president speaks, it’s to multiple audiences,” Perino said. “So from the prism of self-defense, when you think of a young mother whose two year old son was shot in the face by
I´m thinking it was actually 3 black teens who were bumming cigarettes of the woman and she insulted them by telling them to get a job.
Then the imbeciles went home and posted all about the shoooting on Facebook along with posing with the gun.
But beyond the baby getting killed which is bad enough,think about the mentality of people who would openly brag about shooting a baby and being a hero to other hoodsters.This is how you rack points up with these people.
The poor mom in this case should sue that Shabazz character for calling on the killing of cracka babies.
We don´t have to call for the killing off black babies,planned parenthood is taking care of that.
This particular horrific incident occurred in Brunswick, GA,´way way back´ in March so according to Carney "that was a long time ago" and Hilliery, "What difference, at this point, does it make." If you look at the mug shot of the 17-year old ´child´ perp, he too could be Obama´s son.
Best be careful about this one, Dana--read the attached link regarding parents http://www.theglobaldispatch.com/georgia-murder-of-baby-complicated-by-evidence-of-gun-powder-residue-on-hands-of-both-parents-50212/
A caller to SeeSpam brought this up yesterday and the hostess of Washington Urinal and was challenged on the story. The caller had all the facts and slapped her right back and they had to admit a few minutes later that it was true. But then, they´re so busy booking Washington Post writers and other Progressive guests that they don´t have to time for real news.
#12 -- I see your point, but regardless, the President didn´t let facts get in the way of making comments about the Trayvon Martin case.
A finer point would be, where is President Obama´s speech on the fact that black life matters and it matters when that life is taken by another black person, which is what happens 93% of the time a black person is murdered. Where is his speech about black on black crime -- and the fact that children are most likely to get caught in the crossfire and maimed or killed.

The article further quotes Van Jones discussing the Marissa Alexander Case where stand your ground did not apply. Mr. Jones fails to note that Ms. Alexander !) Left the scene to @) return with a gun and then. Fire a warning shot. By leaving she complied with the leftist standard of running away, in returning she was aggrevaating the situation, .
But firing a warning shot is considered brandishing a weapon. The law interpreets brandishing as an attempt at intimidation with a threat of violence. And that act transforms Ms Alexander forms victim acting in defense to perpetrator committing an act.
Obama is a Divider NOT a Uniter! I supported Equal Rights, still do but Obama has set race relations all the way back to the early fifties. Although where I lived we could walk through an all black neighborhood getting only a few stares. The black kids could do the same through mine. To quote my Father a man of his time, That is one thing you have to give the Negroes they have stron, good families!
Or how about the black woman who kidnapped a 12 year old white boy who was home alone on Christmas eve afternoon in Houston in his mother´s apartment (while she and her roommate were working), taken and tortured and set on fire with a welding torch and killed.
That didn´t get much play, either.
If we´re gonna talk about white (or white Hispanic) on black "crime" (or self-defense), let´s talk both sides of the table.
And then, there is the rape and murder of the couple Channon Christian and Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., by 4 black men and one black woman. Did you hear about that? Did Obama ever comment on that? Jesse? Al not so Sharpton?
If 93% of all black murders are committed by black males who are only 6.5% of the population (which leaves out the murders of white people murdered by black males) then the remaining 93.5% of the non-black population of potential killers are effectively being squeezed out of the market. (so to speak)
One, Marissa Alexander did NOT stand her ground. She left the scene and returned with a gun.
Two, the prosecutor was also the utterly lacking in common sense Angela Corey.
Three, the judge´s hands were tied by Florida´s mandatory sentencing laws, which left no option except major jail time for a woman who had been battered by her husband-and left their young children in his custody. Note that the jury is not told about the mandatory 20 and 30 year sentences that will be imposed in these cases.
Four, Google Ronald Thompson for another Angela Corey/mandatory sentence nightmare. Note that the race baiters aren´t interested because Thompson is white. What the news accounts don´t tell us is the race of the women he was trying to protect from 4 teenage boys.
#21 -- YES, the Marisa Alexander case is just another example of Angela Corey OVERCHARGING for a crime. That Rep. Corrine Brown (and her dazzling intellect) can´t make the connection is quite remarkable. Also, supposedly, Corey offer Alexander a plea deal that would only have her serving 3 years in jail...of course, Alexander didn´t want to serve any jail time (and I can´t say that I blame her). Corey should´ve come up with a probationary offer that left her with a blemish on her record and 3 years probation or something of that nature. Unfortunately, Corey doesn´t care about anyone but Corey and she didn´t care that this woman also had children to raise. She´s just a terrible prosecutor.
#17 - Beyond horrible! These people are demons from hell.
Something is mentally wrong with Obama - and not sure which side of himself he hates more, his black side or white side. Maybe he´s angry that he looks black. But either way he encourages racial hatred - the opposite of what many voters had hoped.
The infant that was shot in the face, murdered by the black teens because
“He asked me for money and I said I didn’t have it. When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They’re expensive. And he kept asking and I just said ‘I don’t have it.’ And he said, ‘Do you want me to kill your baby?’ And I said, ‘No, don’t kill my baby",
Wonder why Obama did not mention that one of these boys could very well be his son.
If memory serves I recall reading something about another foreigner(s) who schemed to turn domestic types against the rest in order to win the war. That was WWII and it was regarding Native American Indians but it didn´t work. Obama just changed up the players but the motives are the same and it won´t work this time either. That fool Bamboozler is so stuck on turmoil, conflict, radicalism he thinks shaking the snow globe will result in the flakes all falling down in his favor. WRONG. His tactics are failing more and more bc the lofos are slowly catching on to him. Respect is like virginity, one only loses it once.
Number two don´t forget she´s also fine as frog hair. She´s the only 3 reasons why I watch The Five. Her, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Andrea Tantaros make that show bearable. Our Race Baiter-in-Chief could have used the Trayvon verdict to have his "Sista Souljah" moment but as usual he chose the different route. I´ve said it before and I´ll say it again. This president is a disgrace of EPIC proportions. Instead of uniting the country he is being and continues to be (in his words) derisive and dismissive to race relations in this country. Dana just proves this point again to the idiot LOFOS out their who get their "news" from the lamestream media.
He needs a very SIMPLE narrative and very short words for his script so that talking heads, rappers and Hollywood types can follow along, making the appearance of a bunch of support which does not really exist (see Trayvon Martin)
All of you young Ldotters. Your future, the country´s future will be affected by these murdering gangsta thugs. They are the future generation. They will be in charge. I can´t imagine (maybe I can) what life will be like in this country 20-30 years from now. The gangsta thugs have no remorse, no respect for life. Killing a human being to them is like smashing a fly. And how about this. Most of the black on black murders are drug related. The victim needed a little extra cash and gets mixed up with evil gangsta thugs. Now he´s dead. What happened to having a job that pays money? Selling drugs is the only way to make a living? It makes me sick and afraid that future generations will live under such conditions. Shooting a 2 year old baby in the face? Killing the child? What have we come to be? Trayvon had problems with the law. What could have prevented him from getting killed? I can think of a hundred ways but don´t have time or space. We have got to get the violence undercontrol...stopped. I pray our children learn to love each other regardless of race. I pray that they learn to respect each other and regard each other as children of God.
Beckel uses the excuse that the black on black murders in chicago is because of drug crimes. Why does that excuse murder? Murder is murder regardles of Beckel lunatic leftwin reasoning. If it wasn´t drugs they wouldn´t be killing each other. What would they do with their useless lives? At least murder culls the herd. Dana is the only one who is truly forceful with Beckel. She stands her ground against the lying a..hole. Bolling and Gutfeld take shots but they are always followed with a slap on Beckel´s back, or Gutfeld´s lame laugh. I still don´t understand why Bolling saved Beckel from chocking to death.
Let us not be too harsh on our black & white president. After all, he came from a VERY dysfunctional family. Read his (auto)biography sometime, Dreams From My "Father"(?). If the bloke in Kenya was indeed his Baby Daddy, he ain´t nothing to have pleasant dreams about. FMD even less so. Then there is his Mom. She is a real piece of work.
1. A parallel point: OK, anti-death penalty absolutists, convince us there´s reason the perps should live. No, you may not cite the cost of appeals, etc. That´s a problem created by a corrupt, mush-brained, lawyer-teat legal system, not by having the death penalty. Nor the possibility of getting the wrong person. Also a different matter from the DP itself.
2. IIRC, the baby was indeed a baby, 13 months, not 2 years old.
3. More on the case: "Brunswick City Commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem James T. Brooks was arrested on March 28, 2013 on charges of wilfull obstruction of law enforcement and influence of witness in connection to the death of a [the baby]." [Yes, Brooks "could be Obama´s" uncle."] "Brooks was also charged with racketeering Thursday in an unrelated case stemming from accusations that he accepted money in return for applicants getting police jobs, licenses and permits in Camden County." "Elkins was indicted... for the boy´s murder. Elkins´ mother, Karimah Elkins, 36, and aunt, Katrina Elkins, 33, were arrested... for allegedly making false statements to police. Elkins´ mother was arrested again...[the next day] along with Elkins´ sister, Sabrina Elkins, 19, and charged with tampering with evidence." Looks like Mom and Sis helped by ditching the murder weapon in a pond. From a 3/29/2013 article.
I hope History records the sad, sad fact that this pitiful, deplorable excuse for a pResident failed the nation in the primary objective of Those (not me) The People who elected him, for: Evidence that we are a united People, proud of our heritage as ultimately all immigrants ( not illegals now), whether forcibly from Africa, or forced otherwise by poverty, pestilence, and hunger (Ireland). The scam in the WH should be reviled for all that he is, and even more so for all that he isn´t.
It´s a rare moment when she has fortitude -- just recently when the story broke about the Justice Dept. funding of the Trayvon agitation, she was on "the Five" shrugging it off, commenting "it wasn´t much money anyway".
All of the black on white crime sounds like what the Mau Maus were doing in Kenya during the 50´s. no wonder he keeps his mouth shut. Read Robert Rouarks " Something of Value" a novel set in Kenya during those times.
Obama is a shallow and uninformed person; what little he does know is anti-American. If Ms. Jeantel is correct, Trayvon viciously attacked Zimmerman because Trayvon thought he was a gay man intent on raping him, or following him to his home and raping his little brother. Thus Trayvon is up for hate crime prosecution. And the way Obama and his DOJ think, there is no problem in prosecuting a dead person because "homophobia" and hate crimes trump death.
America needs to get up to speed statistically regarding Chicago´s murder rate. I heard Bob Beckel state with absolute certainly that the murders going on in Mayor Rahm´s realm aren´t mostly black-on-black. He said they´re the result of a massive drug/turf war between Hispanics and blacks.
So there you are. With one short statement the statistical murder rate by blacks is instantly cut in half and the blame shifted to Hispanics.
This is the same obama that voted FOR a Stand Your Ground Law in Illinois on one of the few occasions when he showed up in the Illinois Senate and actually voted other than "present". This is the same obama who sent his friend and minister who married him to the basement of the Old State Capital when announcing his run for president. Must be something politically calculated here, do ya think?
#42 Noticed the same thing. I´m a little sick of her selective outrage. When it has to do with staunch conservatism, she rarely adds her voice to the mix. I´ve heard her derride some of Mark Levins´ positions and it has me turn off the program. Don´t watch it nearly as often as when it premiered, I´m glad for her position on Zimmerman though.
This could be Obama s son... a very savage killing of two shop clerks..their throats slit ear to ear. http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/DA-Price-dispute-sparks-SF-jewelry-store-killings-4670082.php.
#42 - I think she was being sarcastic, as obviously she would not approve or condone federal funding of the protests. Seems like we´re being increasingly thwacked with increasingly outrageous items from this administration every day. How can one not get a bit of outrage fatigue?? I myself am becoming a bit benumbed in response to so many body blows - and pessimistic, not that I will give up.
Moreover, even if she seems too moderate for many - that affords her enough credibility to be allowed a national platform in which to say things like this to the millions who otherwise would not have this point brought home to them.
Black thugs killing other black thugs or innocent black neighbors, is not going to drum up the PC dreaded racism factor. White guy, even though he´s "white" latino, now there´s good commie agitation, milk the Sharpton destructive black ticket. These provoking agitators are making money for themselves out of thin air, faned by the thrill seking Diane Sawyer, who have nothing else better to news "act". Most working respectable blacks get along with most working respectable whites. No big deal This is the greatest country yet, even as democrat commies destroy city after city, and they´re working on destoying the entire economy, too. Racism is used as a war drum by unfriendly native witch doctors like Al Sharpton, Jesse the Con Jackson, Diane Alarmist Sawyer and most of TV´s news actors
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
Office Depot said Tuesday it has chosen Boca Raton, Fla. for its new headquarters over Naperville. Office Depot completed its merger with Naperville-based OfficeMax last month, but the pair hadn´t yet announced where the combined company would be based. The companies asked for tax breaks from both states. Illinois lawmakers adjourned last week before making a decision. Last month, the company named Roland Smith, the former head of the U.S. unit of supermarkets operator Delhaize Group, as its new CEO, hoping to tap into his turnaround and integration background. The company said the evaluation of its headquarters selection was based
The most influential think tank in Washington is getting a new address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Metaphorically speaking, of course. But The Center for American Progress has so many contributors, fellows, and staffers who already work there they may as well make it offical and change the address on their business cards. This is especially true now that the founder and chairman of the board of CAP, John Podesta, is going to work for Obama. New York Times: President Obama, after a rocky year that leaves him at the lowest ebb of his presidency, is bringing into his White House circle the longtime
WASHINGTON- Democratic Representative Mel Watt´s nomination to lead the agency that regulates taxpayer-owned mortgage financiers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac cleared a procedural hurdle in the U.S. Senate, putting it on course for final approval likely later on Tuesday. President Barack Obama nominated Watt in May to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency, but Republicans had blocked a final vote. Last month, however, Senate Democrats changed the rules to allow nominees like Watt to overcome filibusters with a simple majority in the 100-seat chamber. Previously, it took 60 votes.
The generous mystery tipper who has been leaving waiters and waitresses across the country thousands of dollars in "Tips for Jesus" — and stamped with the @tipsforjesus handle — was identified by a New York City waiter as Jack Selby, former PayPal vice president. Aruj Dhawan, a waiter at Bo´s Kitchen, told the New York Post that Selby and two other patrons gave him a $1,000 tip on a $111.05 bill. "As I was about to drop the check off, one of the men said they would ‘make my night.’ They called me over, gave me the check," Dhawan told
General Motors GM -0.22% CEO Dan Akerson and the GM board have selected product chief Mary Barra to succeed him, the company said today, and Akerson is retiring in January. The move will make 33-year GM veteran Barra the first woman to lead a global automaker. Arguably, it will make her the highest-profile female CEO in the world. It also set in motion a cascade of other management changes in the biggest re-set of the automaker’s leadership since the 2009 U.S.-government bailout. But all the moves were internal. Akerson accelerated the timing of his exit by several months because of
Democrats have blamed much of the gridlock on Capitol Hill on a number of GOP extremists who won’t accept legislation that is not perfect in their minds. Asked by Kenneth G. Langone, the co-founder of Home Depot, whether there are any extremists in the Democratic ranks, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said no. “I don’t think there are any extremists in my party,” the Maryland Democrat said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” Mr. Langone expressed disbelief at the comment. “What more can I say,” he said. “The other guys are the bad guys, you are the good guys.” Mr. Hoyer said
“Netflix is casting its vote for Mitt Romney,” quipped The Hollywood Reporter. The video streaming service has acquired a Greg Whiteley documentary titled “Mitt” that will debut January 24. The behind-the-scenes documentary on Romney’s campaigns for president from 2006 to 2012 with a “surprising level of access” to the candidate will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 17. Lisa Nishimura, Netflix vice president of original documentary and comedy, declared "This rare inside look at Mitt Romney and his family as he runs for president showcases a unique kind of storytelling, one which takes the viewer well beyond the
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood.

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
President Obama will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony.

All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
An Iraq veteran who thought he was buying an iPad as a Christmas present after responding to a Craigslist posting, has been shot dead in an Indianapolis parking lot by the fake sellers. New-dad Jim Vester, 32, was lured to an address on Wednesday in the west side of the city and brothers Tyron Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, have been arrested after Vester was shot dead leaving behind his one-year-old son, Gavin and wife, Jamie.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell believes the United States should have a socialized, single-payer healthcare system similar to those in Canada and Europe. “I think universal health care is one of the things we should really be focused on, and I hope that will happen,” Powell reportedly said last week. “Whether it’s Obamacare, or son of Obamacare, I don’t care. As long as we get it done.” The Puget Sound Business Journal reported Powell´s remarks at the Prostate Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast at the University of Washington´s Cancer Research Center. Powell, the Republican who supported Barack Obama during the last two presidential
