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
Either President Obama needs a new speechwriter, or he needs a new set of economic policies. Actually, he needs both. Can anyone think of a more boring, banal, irrelevant, or stale speech than the one he gave this Thursday in Washington DC? The speech was allegedly on the economy, but more likely it was to divert attention from the Obamacare catastrophe. Whatever the motive, his idea that the defining challenge of our time is to reduce income inequality is completely wrong. In truth, the defining challenge is to restore more rapid economic growth, create substantially more jobs, and significantly reduce
President Obama on Thursday said that Republicans should be “embarrassed” that they have not done more on Capitol Hill, blaming them for Washington gridlock. “They´ve got to be embarrassed,” the president said in an interview on MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews." “Because the truth of the matter is that they´ve now been in charge of the House of Representatives, one branch of, or one chamber in one branch of government, for a couple of years now and they just don´t have a lot to show for it.” Obama said that congressional Republicans were too fearful of offending their conservative base to
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
On Thursday, in the aftermath of South African iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s death at age 95, President Obama’s White House account tweeted a tribute to Mandela – a picture of Obama in Mandela’s Robben Island prison cell, along with a quote from Obama about Mandela: (Photo/Tweet) Even in paying tribute to a historic figure, President Obama couldn’t help but make it about him.
As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long “makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier,” and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. “The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes
Chris Matthews got his long-desired wish on Thursday, an exclusive interview with Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor didn´t exactly live up to the title of his show, wondering about Republican efforts to "make it difficult for minorities to vote" and questioning who was better, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden? Talking to the President at American University, Matthews read a question from Twitter: "What can we do to stop the GOP, the Republicans, from rigging the states, rigging the votes, state by state, to disenfranchise voters and destroy our democracy?" The host added, "Thirty six states right now led by Republican
Wednesday night, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews announced that his interview with the president, which is scheduled for today, gave him "the Christmas Eve excitement." Outside the left-wing fever swamp of MSNBC, Matthews is perhaps most famous to the American people for his 2008 comment about how an Obama speech put a "thrill up his leg." In his latest campaign effort to rehabilitate his sinking presidency and health care law, President Obama will sit down with Matthews this afternoon in front of a group of college students. The audience is no accident. Obama desperately needs healthy Millennials to be stupid
Rep. George Holding (R-N.C.) has proposed legislation that would require federal officials and others who use ObamaCare data to commit identify theft to serve a five-year prison term. His No Identify Theft in Health Care Act, H.R. 3652, is yet another response to the troubled ObamaCare rollout. Over the last week, reports have surfaced quoting computer security experts who said HealthCare.gov has virtually no data security measures in place. Under Holding´s bill, healthcare "navigators" or anyone else guilty of using ObamaCare data for an identify theft scheme would face prison time. Many bills amending criminal statutes set maximum prison sentences,
A new Gallup poll has President Obama’s job approval rating among Hispanics has declined 23 points since the end of last year. The drop is the largest of any subgroup surveyed and about double the decline for all respondents. Obama’s approval rating with Hispanics in November 2013 is 52 percent. In December 2012 it was 75 percent, down 23 points in 12 months. The president’s overall approval rating was 41 percent in November 2013, down from 53 percent in November of 2012.
Did you hear the one about the U.S. Post Office and the Statue of Liberty? So the Postal Service decides to issue a stamp commemorating perhaps the single most iconic image around the world representing the United States of America, the country that the post office serves so faithfully — rain, snow, or shine. (Photo)They get a nice picture of Lady Liberty, her greenish copper gaze across New York Harbor welcoming the masses to a new land of hope and promise and opportunity. They print it up First Class at the rate of “Forever,” as in a timeless promise that
Nobody is coming for your guns, they said. Nobody is taking away your rights, they said. This is all about public safety, they said. Nearly a year ago, the New York legislature passed the toughest gun control law in the country known as the S.A.F.E. Act. It was rushed through in the middle of the night and as soon as it landed on Governor Cuomo´s desk, he signed it without asking questions. Now, local and state government are taking the opportunity to crack down on regulations already on the books which means for many, turn in your guns or leave.
An academic was the first to cross the invisible line. “The ultimate check on presidential lawlessness is elections and, in extreme cases, impeachment,” Georgetown law professor Nicholas Rosenkranz told Representative Darrell Issa at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday on the president’s duty to uphold the law. With that first mention of the “i word,” leaks began springing from the dam that had been holding back the House GOP lawmakers united by frustration with President Obama’s executive abuses. Republicans have been watching impotently as Obama has walked all over the law, with increasing brazenness the further he gets into his tenure.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
The president put in his ask to Disney CEO Bob Iger at a private meeting with entertainment moguls during his Nov. 26 visit to Jeffrey Katzenberg´s DreamWorks Animation. [snip] If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg´s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale. At the end of the conversation -- which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran -- Obama revealed what´s at the top of his bucket
