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
Sarah Palin, in her first public reaction to MSNBC host Martin Bashir´s resignation following an on-air attack against her, said Thursday that Bashir´s comments were "par for the course." "Six years ago, I probably would have been personally hurt by such an attack," the former Alaska governor told Fox News. "Now, no, I look at it as it´s kind of par for the course." Bashir, in scripted commentary, said last month that someone should defecate in Palin´s mouth. He was invoking an old slave punishment in response to a speech by Palin, a Fox News contributor, comparing the national debt
On Thursday, Clear Channel started announcing major lineup shifts in three of its biggest markets. In Los Angeles, Limbaugh will be moving from the top talk station in the market, KFI, to its sister station, KTLK, which will be flipped from a liberal talk station to a primarily conservative talker anchored by Limbaugh. Breitbart News has learned that Clear Channel will soon be announcing a similar change in San Francisco, as well as confirming the long expected move in New York from Cumulus-owned WABC to WOR, which was purchased by Clear Channel last year. These moves are not unexpected from
Hourly wage increases advocated by labor groups could kill more than 450,000 jobs, according to a new report. Union-backed labor groups, including Fast Food Forward and Fight for 15, are staging nationwide walk-outs and demonstrations at fast food chains across the country calling for starting wages of $15 per hour. Their success could spell economic disaster for nearly 20 percent of the nation’s 2.5 million fast food workers, according to an analysis from the Employment Policies Institute. “We find that roughly 460,000 jobs would be lost in the fast food industry as a consequence of a $15 minimum wage,” the EPI
The Democratic rift over entitlements deepened this week as a top party contender for governor in Pennsylvania came under fire from liberals after a think tank of which she is co-chairwoman criticized economic-populism messages of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio. Liberals demanded that gubernatorial candidate Allyson Y. Schwartz cut her ties with Third Way after two of its top officials wrote an op-ed criticizing Ms. Warren and Mr. de Blasio by name, saying they are pushing a “‘we can have it all’ fantasy.” The activist groups Democracy for America and Progressive Change Campaign Committee
WASHINGTON — President Obama and congressional Democrats, seizing on the good news of an improving health care website and rising enrollments, on Wednesday highlighted parts of the law that are popular with the public and reminded Americans, and the law’s opponents, of what would be lost if the Affordable Care Act were repealed. As part of that political counteroffensive, which began this week, Democratic congresswomen challenged Republicans to present an alternative that would provide free preventive health services for the 105 million Americans who have already received them under the law. At the same time, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck criticized President Barack Obama’s recent speech about income inequality, arguing that Obama was unwisely attempting to change the subject from the Affordable Care Act in a way that highlighted the growing inequality under his own presidency. “Obamacare isn’t working, so the president goes to his old faithful ‘class warfare argument,’” Hasselbeck said. “He’s saying he wants to take out inequality and his policies from the beginning have been to equalize.” But, she continued, “the top 1%—their income rose by 31.4% between 2009 and 2012. Income for everyone else, you know how much that grew?
WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew at a 3.6 percent annual rate from July through September, the fastest since early 2012. But nearly half the growth came from a buildup in business stockpiles, a trend that could reverse in the current quarter and hold back growth. The Commerce Department´s second estimate of third-quarter growth was much higher than the initial 2.8 percent rate reported last month. And it was well above the 2.5 percent growth rate for the April-June quarter. But almost the entire third-quarter revision came from a big jump in stockpiles. Consumer spending, the lifeblood of the economy,
[Video] REP. BOB GOODLATTE (R-VA): Professor Turley, the constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It´s about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president´s unilateral modification of act of Congress affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people? JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he´s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He´s
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed back against President Barack Obama’s claim that Republicans have no alternative to his failing healthcare law, telling Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren “this is a president that has a difficult time telling the truth.” The Republican leader sat down with Van Susteren to dispute Obama’s accusation that Republicans were merely obstructionists with no plan of their own: VAN SUSTEREN: The president spoke yesterday and he had a lot of harsh words, but one of the thing he said is that the GOP has no plans in reference to healthcare. He also said that you
VIENNA/MEXICO CITY- Mexican police have found dangerous radioactive medical material stolen by thieves that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a "dirty bomb," the country´s national nuclear safety commission CNSNS said on Wednesday. The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City. The thieves removed the radioactive material from a protective case, exposing them to dangerous levels of radiation then dumped it less than a mile away. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage
After a near week-and-a-half “vacation” from being on-air, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir resigned Wednesday afternoon in light of comments he made about someone defecating in Sarah Palin‘s mouth. As Mediaite readers are likely well aware, I’ve gone after Bashir’s show multiple times, not for partisan reasons (I occasionally agree with the host) but because I believe his show represented the very worst aspects of cable news today. There are plenty of nasty, counterproductive hosts and pundit on Fox and CNN as well, but Bashir’s show somehow managed to combine all those negatives into one giant mess. And so, with that, I
President Barack Obama will sit for an interview with Hardball host Chris Matthews Thursday evening, the first time the MSNBC host has spoken one-on-one to the president since April 2008. On Morning Joe Thursday morning, Matthews wondered if Obama’s recent actions, perhaps including his arrival on Hardball, was due to a need to shore up his base after a disastrous rollout of his signature legislation. “I don’t usually need them,” Matthews said of high-profile guests. “I enjoy just duking it out with politicians at a distance. I don’t need to beg them to come on my show. But I always
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.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
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
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[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
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
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
MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews, Barack Obama´s most excitable fan, will be interviewing the President on Thursday´s Hardball. Fawning over the liberal politician is incredibly common among journalists, but Matthews has taken it to a whole new level. According to the network host, Obama is a "perfect," "cool," brilliant figure who is comparable to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The verbose Matthews has no filter when it comes to the Democrat, even once bizarrely blurting out that an Obama speech made him "forget" that the commander in chief "was black." To prepare you for the likely love-fest
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
