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
Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will host a new outdoors show on The Sportsman Network, set to begin airing in 2014. The weekly show, entitled Amazing America, will showcase Palin’s “red, white, and blue” lifestyle. Palin is no stranger is television, having starred in her own reality show in 2011, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which lasted only nine episodes. (Hey, remember this?) Palin won’t be the only right-wing figure on the network, as Ted Nugent hosts his own hunting show, Wanted Ted or Alive. Currently promoting her Christmas book, Good Tidings and Great Joy, Palin recently became
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
The world will pay its respects to deceased South African leader Nelson Mandela this week. A memorial service will be held tomorrow at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg. At least 70 heads of state will be there, including four U.S. presidents. And with such short notice, it´s proving to be a major security challenge. South Africa has hosted huge events before -- the World Cup in 2010, and dignitaries from all over the world descended on this country for the inauguration of President Mandela in 1994 -- but the country has never seen anything like this. Scores of world leaders
WASHINGTON- A CIA program in which operatives posed as business people to gather intelligence was a costly failure and is being canceled, past and present officials say. The program, on which at least $3 billion was spent, began after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Tribune Newspapers reported Monday. At its height, hundreds of agents working outside the protection of diplomatic immunity under "non-official cover" used fake identities and front companies to recruit sources in hostile countries, especially Iran. (Snip) The most well-known of the agents was Valerie Plame. Posted in Brussels, she posed as an energy analyst for a
Former VP Dick Cheney declared this morning that he doesn´t believe that President Obama thinks the United States is "an exceptional nation." On Fox and Friends, Cheney was asked what the main difference is between the Bush and Obama administrations when it comes to foreign policy. Cheney said that our adversaries no longer fear the United States, and our allies don´t trust the Obama administration to follow through. "We´re withdrawing from the Middle East, cutting the Defense Department budget to the bone, doing enormous damage there. ... The bottom line is nobody cares much in the Middle East what the U.S.
Emerging from behind airplanes and space capsules, the United States Air Force Band surprised visitors at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum with a flash mob performance involving 120 musicians. The four-minute show was started Friday when Technical Sgt. Edward Prevost, a cellist, began playing after sitting down in a chair in the museum’s “Milestones of Flight” gallery, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. The full band soon joined in, playing an arrangement of Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Joy to the World, while vocalists emerged from the museum’s second-floor balcony.
During the December 8th episode of This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Republican strategist Mary Matalin countered arguments for a higher minimum wage by arguing that Obama´s economic policies are responsible for the very poverty it´s designed to fight. This was in response to Professor Michael Eric Dyson´s claim that "income inequality" and day-to-day arrangements for "the working poor" present problems that demand immediate attention. Dyson said we cannot even measure the number of the jobs created under Obama or make broader economic plans until "we deal with people who are at the bottom." Matalin quickly returned fire, emphasizing that the
When Mohammad Hamedi Rad arrived in the United States last year, he carried his Iranian passport, a hard-won student visa and a backpack containing $14,000 in hundred dollar bills, because there was no simpler way of getting money into the country. "It was scary," Hamedi Rad, a chemical engineering graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said of his late-night arrival in Chicago, where he declared the funds to airport customs officials. "I´ve never carried that much money before. I was extremely nervous." Hamedi Rad´s experience is by no means unheard of among many of the thousands of
This spectacle had to have the white-hot spotlight, front page, bold type (whoa-oh!) — to quote one of the evening’s celebrated songwriters — because this Kennedy Center Honors gala was a talker. The night might have begun as the latest parade of cultural icons seated in an opera box with their president, but when a rapper and a Supreme Court justice take the same stage, it isn’t your standard lifetime achievement fete. (Snip) The show — hosted by actress Glenn Close — began with a resounding rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” played by Cuban jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. Should anyone
The "Piano Man" who became one of the world´s best-selling artists of all time with such hits as "Just the Way You Are," "Uptown Girl" and "Allentown" is being awarded the nation´s highest honor Sunday for influencing American culture through the arts. Billy Joel joins Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. All of them have been playing music, dancing or singing since they were children -- and have never stopped. Joel said the honor stands apart from his six Grammys. "This is different. It´s our nation´s capital," he
Couples should not have children if their relationship is not stable enough to merit getting married, a senior High Court judge said yesterday. Sir Paul Coleridge said those couples whose relationship was stable enough to cope with the rigours of child rearing should marry. But the judge, who is retiring from the bench next year after decades as a family lawyer and judge, said those who did not feel ready for children should not have them. He said couples had no right to have children, “you only have responsibilities if you have them”. Sir Paul criticised warring parents’ obsessions with
Thursday’s sad passing of world civil rights icon Nelson Mandela was a frequent topic of discussion at Friday’s White House daily briefing, as several reporters asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to elaborate on Mandela’s influence, and on details surrounding his funeral. CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta asked about “this great impact” that Mandela had on the President, while repeatedly stressing that President Obama had only met Mandela once. Acosta began with a personal observation, telling Carney that “it just sort of struck me that the President talked about this great impact that he had on his life, but
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
