"Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!" young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman´s acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards´s tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday. For the record, "woods" is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the "knock-out
Obama, Holder, Jacka$$, $harpton, hundreds of Obamedia mouthpieces and hundreds of needy celebrities. Well, maybe not so much the celebrities, because not one of them was hired for having BRAINS but they bear a little responsibility; heck, they´ve slowed down but the occasional celebrity whatever still makes some asinine quote to a media that thinks America still cares.
There should be a civil lawsuit against these scum like Jackson and Sharpton. It should be brought by all the people victimized by them over the years. Those two scum have promoted bigotry, racism and violence. Zimmermann must be living in fear because of the violent rhetoric that has been said against him. Even the Pipsqueak has chimed in from the White House. How can America abide having racists running free promoting racial hatred and violence? Also, why are deviants like Jackson and Sharpton able to get away with extortion?
The exploitation of the Zimmerman case has undoubtedly fomented much hatred toward whites within the black community. Young people listen to voices of anger within their own homes, on television and on the streets. Surely, it gives them a feeling of anger, resentment and surges of power that will exhibit in horrible behaviors such as in the cold blooded, senseless killing of Christopher Lane. The exploiters of race should be shunned by all media. Replace them with the voices of decency in the black community; those who will shame their own for lighting the flame this flame of evil.
FTA: As a first priority, Obama sent his "thoughts and prayers" to the family of Trayvon Martin. As to George Zimmerman and his extended family, still in hiding after a year and a half of death threats, Obama offered not a word of hope or encouragement. Nor did he rebuke those whose threats forced the Zimmermans into an internal exile.
How did such a person ever become president of the greatest nation on earth?
Sharpton, Jackson (who said yesterday, the murder of the 22 year old white student from Australia by 3 non-caucasians s/o, is "frowned upon", along with the agitaror-in-chief-obama ARE responsible for spreading the lies causing racial-hatred among their young and ignorant followers. Black on white attacks by obama´s "look-a-like-sons" are going on all across the country. The ONLY way we find out about them is by reading Drudge or Lucianne.com and a few others. The mafia-like protection of this corrupt administration is one of the many reasons "journalism" has turned into pure propaganda in this country. Detroit is coming our way. God help us.
We are getting the curtain pulled back on race relations in this country and it is not pretty. The truth is that our president has an agenda on this issue and that is to stir up racial division in order to consolidate democrat power. Obama made the most craven political decision when he stepped into the Trayvon Martin case. It was unheard of. Presidents don´t do this. However, Obama not once, but twice inserted himself on the side of Martin in direct opposition to the evidence. He did this purposefully. He knew what he was doing. He was, indeed, pushing this country toward racial unrest. Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton are direct results of Obama´s actions and there will be more just the way he intended. There is no other explanation for Obama´s actions. He did what he wanted to do, incite violence against whites. Any pushback from whites will be dealt with extreme governmental force. Everything is in place. He is waiting for the opportunity.
Has 0bama said anything yet about this killing? What about the killing of the baby in Georgia? What about Delbert Belton? Nope. He´s still traveling around on our dollar making a fool out of himself at high schools and colleges trying to make a case for the failed 0bamascare scam. God help America. What have we done to deserve an a@@h@@e like this for president?
right after hussien was "elected" there was an inident in a town here. A black yut committed a serious crime. When caught and questioned he replied that now that there was a black president he could do these things. the president would protect him. how right he was...
You know, when the whole Trayvon "tragedy" was being inflamed by the media and the WH, I had a feeling that it might backfire on them.
As a poster said yesterday, Zimmerman was right! And we all may wind up owing GZ a debt of gratitude as the catalyst that finally stops the PC privileged treatment of guilty black thugs and shines the light of truth on them and their leftist enablers.
It´s way past time to stand up to them, to hold them accountable and to take this country back to Equal Protection Under The Law.
Race hustlers Obama, Sharpton and Jackson sow and we reap... and weep. In our dysfunctional culture their message gets through to millions of ill-raised, feral teens who know so little, but do know they have license and justification to maim and kill. A license signed by the race hustlers. And now this morning, the outrageous and pitiful story of the Spokane WWII Vet beating and murder...
The only thing Zippy is NOT responsible for in this killing is pulling the trigger. It is estimated that between 8 to 9 million Republican leaning voters never showed up on 11/06/12. Thats the root cause.
Pat Buchanan stresses the way disproportionate numbers of black on white vs white on black crime. Attorney General Eric Holder was pontificating about America´s lack of guts, in his words, to have a real discussion on race. This was a shameless bluff because he knew better than most that, corrected for population size, black on white murder and rape vs white on black is in the neighborhood of forty to one. Now that´s an elephant in this American room.
- I do think that the news media will now finally start reporting (if still misinterpreting) these kinds of crimes now. Their considerable bias and corruption aside, they know a story that sells papers, pays for 30 second spots, and gets net clicks. With that forty to one ratio, you know these incidents happen all the time. The difference now is that they may now break through the MSM´s stone wall. Finally. And then we can have Holder´s little conversation.
How many of the 5 "woods" Edwards knocked out were reported by the msm? I would guess none just 5 consecutive "random" acts of violence by the same individual. One poster told me that a majority of blacks aren´t racist and that any discussion of a race war against whites is bs. I´m unaware that obama has ever criticized flash mobs attacking whites or the knock out game. If I´m wrong someone please correct me. Thank you. This kind of violence by blacks against whites will continue. It´s all considered part of reparations I guess.
Zero and the race hustlers are trying to bring about a revolution in this country. Exactly what they meant by "hope and change". They are guilty of doing exactly what they accuse the Tea Party of doing.
Where did that boy get that gun? Who is it registered to? Where did he buy his ammo? Is that part of the ammo that the DHS has been ordering by the millions of rounds since 2010? And regarding Fast and Furious - is the Obama Administration arming black gangs in America? I hate to wear a tinfoil hat, but I´m starting to see a pattern here and it´s very disturbing.
Who do they think is going to win the coming race war? Blacks are outnumbered by whites by about 5 to 1. And there is a huge amount of dislike for blacks in the Hispanic and Asian communities as well. Zippy, Holder, Sharpton et al need to take a very close look at the odds before they push their agenda any further.
#23 ~ looks like my refutation of the "peeps didn´t show up" arguments is getting through to folks.
The fact is we have about 90 million grown adults who are eligible to vote but who don´t register, and never vote!
Looks like somebody´s turned that into "X million Republican leaning" ~ which really can´t be imputed from that number.
Just about everybody who is registered actually votes in a Presidential race. That number will change from race to race based on two factors ~ the death rate among registered voters AND the seriousness of the voter registration drives mounted by each party.
The big population blip created by Baby Boomers is adding what seem to be unanticipated numbers to the normal death toll. And, it is, but the percentage by age is still pretty much the same as it´s been the last 40 to 50 years. This works out to about 1 million a year Republican, and over 1 million a year Democrat.
Best place to see it at work is the 2004 to 2008 period when Republicans simply didn´t engage in voter registration drives. W got 4 million more votes than McCain!
The TEAParty ran voter registration drives that kept up with the death rate (4 million people 2008 to 2012) and got an EXTRA 1 million registered ~ hence, Romney´s total exceeds that of McCain but falls short of Bush!
The Democrats got their britches scared off them in 2004 ~ normal growth rates didn´t yield them enough new voters to offset the Baby Boom death rate ~ so they started a major registration drive. They made up for the death rate and got 9 million more to the polls than the Republicans in 2008.
Leftists seem to know that they have to create a problem before they can rush in and ´fix´ it.
First...create an environment which is hostile to capitalism and then blame capitalists.
Second....commandeer the ´civil rights´ movement and transform it into a ´Hate Whitey´ crusade.
There is, still, a large contingent of reasonable, rational people in this country who are acting like adults, biding their time and waiting for this nightmare to pass like a summer tornado.....hoping that it does not kill too many and destroy too much.
But I´m moving closer every day to that camp of folks who have had enough of it.
I know when I´m being bullied.
The way of the schoolyard is the way of the world.
Anyone who´s tough enough to travel the 20 miles of dirt road required to get to my house had better show up with a smile and a damned good reason to be there.
All the prominent individuals--most especially, the president--who needlessly, cynically, and demagogically flogged the Trayvon Martin self-defense homicide into a cause célèbre for the racial grievance industry and black street gang members are to blame for whipping up the emotions of some very evil people, making retaliation murders against innocent non-blacks inevitable. Chris Lane, in the wrong place at the wrong time, would up on the "payback" side of Obama´s demagoguery.
Yes, because of the singular prominence of his position, Obama is most to blame for stirring up some soulless individuals who were just looking for an excuse to snuff out someone who didn´t look like themselves then laugh about it afterwards (as they did). What´s worse is that Obama, far from a brilliant individual but certainly not a stupid one, either, must surely have known that enflaming his impressionable supporters would end this way. No words of condemnation could be strong enough. It´s pure evil in a $2,000 suit.
First Black President? No! First Black Anything? No! First Mulatto President? Yes! “Let me be clear. Contrary to the way people often describe me, I am not America’s first Black president. I am America’s first Mulatto president. I am just as White as I am Black, and I’m proud to be both.” Remember when Obama said that? I don’t either.
The Civil Rights movement was not about equality but payback and reparations. I and my family have done nothing to keep blacks down in this country. I owe them nothing. And if Oprah, Obama , et al want a race war -good. Intelligence and skill are on our side.
Notice how they´re all hiding now? Obama and the rest are worth nothing. Their silence says all I need to know. We have an epidemic and the LSM is covering it up.
"The murder of the Australian man in Oklahoma was horrific, but not unique. Or even rare.
A similar episode of black mob violence happened just a few days ago in Memphis. And a few days before that in St. Paul. And before that in Burlington. And before that in Delaware, New Haven, Madison, Denver, Flint, Peoria, Springfield, Greensboro, Green Bay, and on and on and on.
This is a long list with more than 500 cases of recent black mob violence in more than 100 cities, big and small, many on video – and all unreported as being part of an epidemic of black mob violence throughout America."
If you act like an animal people will treat you like an animal. They are tatooed up with crooked hats shoplifting, stealing and killing. The whole race is a screw up. When they learn to get married and get a job before having kids they will be much better off. Now most of them are a menace to society and the race has failed.
One of the things that I like most about having a Republican in the White house is that my liberal friends suddenly have "standards". They actually place expectations on our President and they expect the man to meet those expectations. We, as a people, work together in some sense to make our country successful.
When a democrat is in the White House every liberal´s critical thinking skills take a four year vacation and I am left alone in the battle against stupid.
Divide and conquer is the strategy. Divide the people along economic and racial lines,............fan the flames via the MSM ( which is the collective PR arm of the current adminstration) and you bring down the USA. That´s always been the goal( agenda).
I sincerely hope #26 is being sarcastic. If not, they need to have a serious rethink and do some more research. Obama may have finally bit off more than he can chew with his stirring up of the race pot from the WH podium with his irresponsible remarks. Don´t even get me started with the corrupt media covering this all up.
Obama is what he is and there is no changing that fact. Since they say a majority of American voters elected Obama to another term in office there is nothing that can be done as far as he is concerned until his term of office ends as Obama will never change his views. The wimpy Republicans are never going to impeach the first black President unless he does something really egregious, like importing the Muslim Brotherhood into America and according them US voting rights, or maybe attempting to legalize the massive illegal alien population through some sort of executive order thus going around the Congress.
The only thing that the average person can do to safeguard their lives against being the victim of a sucker punch that could cause them grievous bodily injury, or being otherwise assaulted, or killed, is to stay alert at all times and stay away from the people who common sense shows are very prone to perpetrate such criminal action. Under the current political and social circumstances throughout the country you can´t count on law enforcement to protect you from becoming the victim of such a violent assault, and that will not happen in most cases until after the fact. You have to do what is necessary to protect yourself and your family.
The ultimate solution to this out of control racially charged situation is to never vote for liberal Democrats, no matter what they claim they will do for you during the build ups to future elections.
They sincerely want a war they could not win? Why? As an excuse to call in government intervention? Martial law? I know of not one black person (and I know a large number) who would be happy under that. None I know take well to authority. None.
Sixty years of the US government trying to pound into our heads that black and white is the same thing has been fruitless because it´s not true and never will be. The many blacks that I have known tend to live on a highly emotional level, some very good and some very bad. We forced them out of stone age Africa and expect them to be good little citizens of the 21st century. Ain´t gonna happen. We all know some highly capable and very good, smart black people. Unfortunately, there aren´t enough of them.
#42, if Zimmerman is having a respite, it is only a respite. I understand that Law & Order is doing a total propaganda variation hit piece on the case. Of course, their disclaimer will be that the plot is not based on actual events.
Let´s remember, it is the ideology of BO and his cohorts, his comrades, which defines their morality, behavior, attitudes. All you need to do is listen to Black Conservatives and you will hear clarity and rationality and often sheer brilliance.
We can NOT let the race- and fear-mongers, the divisive scoundrels, the hateful vengeance-seekers succeed in driving the wedge any deeper than they have already.
Leftists are ruthless, murderous, cruel. How deluded are those who bought --and buy-- into the smooth speeches of these demagogues!
If people cared about the truth, they would look for it. Sounds simplistic, but truth is powerful. For one thing, we would not be saddled with this deceiver as POTUS.
Let´s just say, there´s enough blood on enough hands to go around, and we have the Leftists to thank for it. The Leftists, the Liberals, the Democrats, the Progressives. Whatever you want to call the despicable people who have literally laid waste to the Black Community. Destroyed the Black Family.
And, yeah. 0b@$tard´s are dripping with his share of the blood, divisive cretin that he is.
But if you want to know where the blame for this nation of Leftists with blood on their hands should rest squarely, you have to go back to LBJ´s Great Society. He´s where it started It perked along for three or four generations, just sort of idling in third gear, getting a little worse all the time.
Then came the Mulatto Marxist and he kicked it into overdrive. The nation is more divided now than it was when Bull Connor --a DEMOCRAT, was sicing the attack dogs on people of color who only wanted to have lunch at dime store lunch counter. The Black Community is worse off now than its ever been under any president since LBJ began the destruction.
Dr. Ben Carson´s story needs to be heard more often. He should be scheduled at high schools and colleges to offset Obama´s venues of choice.
Maybe the good doctor could recruit some famous black athletes who have worked hard and are very aware of hard work in attaining their places on various teams to appear with him.
Successful black athletes don´t get placed in important positions on a team, as a rule, because of their skin color. The team´s owners have too much at stake for that kind of bad judgement on the part of a coach. Unfortunately, most young people only see the big $$$ that athletes are paid but they never understand the work that gets said athlete to those big dollars.
#68, part of the current effort is to stoke a verbal race war... to gin up the troops for a bigger turnout in the 2014 midterms than the DimWitz could normally expect... O-Bomber is very fearful of losing control of the Senate as well as not gaining the House... it would make his agenda DOA immediately... and lead to more movement in the direction of impeachment... he already knows he´s GUILTY!
And beyond the verbal skirmishes and the 2014 voting... A genuine shooting race war could allow Zippy to declare martial law and become a dicktater, possibly postponing the 2016 election cycle, perhaps indefinitely...
O-Bomber is a Muslim-sympathizing, Wannabe Kommie Dicktater who hates whites and uses his ugly thug Attorney General to destroy the rule of law in America...
Make sure we win the vote in 2014 and then move toward impeaching this lawless mulatto blastard...
There´s a furor at the White House, and they did NOT SEE it coming. Also, Republicans came under attack over the weekend for a well-intended but impolitic tweet observing the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks´s arrest for defying segregation on a Montgomery, Ala., municipal bus. "Today we remember Rosa Parks´ bold stand and her role in ending racism," read the tweet from the Republican National Committee´s institutional account. "Of course, there´s nothing controversial about celebrating a woman today who played a big role in the American civil-rights movement," writes National Journal´s Matt Berman. "What is bothering some people today, though, is the
Here the liberals go again: trying with all their might to prop up an increasingly unpopular piece of legislation. This time, no less than Robert Reich has attempted to take the "moral" high road and claim that there is a "moral imperative" to ObamaCare. Reich noted that recently he heard a young man express that he would rather pay a penalty than be forced by law to purchase health insurance. According to Reich, the young man asked, "Why should I pay for the sick and the old?" Reich´s answer is telling: "The answer is he has a responsibility to do so,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has instructed the heads of Israel’s intelligence community to look for proof that Iran is violating an interim deal signed with the international community last week over its nuclear program, a British newspaper reported on Sunday. The Israeli spying effort to expose Iranian duplicity represents a direct challenge to US President Barack Obama’s efforts, it said. Mossad, as well as the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate, have been told to dig up evidence of Iranian duplicity ahead of Obama’s push to win support for the deal in Congress and thus head off legislators’ demands for further sanctions
For nearly 20 years, the secret code to authorize launching U.S. nuclear missiles, and starting World War III, was terrifyingly simple and even noted down on a checklist. From 1962, when John F Kennedy instituted PAL encoding on nuclear weapons, until 1977, the combination to fire the devastating missiles at the height of the Cold War was just 00000000. This was chosen by Strategic Air Command in an effort to make the weapons as quick and as easy to launch as possible, as reported by Today I Found Out. The Permissive Action Link (PAL) is a security device for nuclear weapons that it
The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told. In the most dramatic of those releases, the US in April released a top Iranian scientist, Mojtaba Atarodi, who had been arrested in 2011 for attempting to acquire equipment that could be used for Iran’s military-nuclear programs. American and Iranian officials have
As America struggles with high unemployment and record inequality, everyone is offering competing solutions to the problem. In this war of words (and classes), one thing has been repeated so often that many people now regard it as fact. "Rich people create the jobs." Specifically, by starting and directing America´s companies, entrepreneurs and rich investors create the jobs that sustain everyone else. This statement is usually invoked to justify cutting taxes on entrepreneurs and investors. If only we reduce those taxes and regulations, the story goes, entrepreneurs and investors can be incented to build more companies and create more jobs. This argument ignores the fact
The U.S. released a top Iranian scientist Mojtaba Atarodi in April as part of the dealings with Iran in Geneva recently, the Times of Israel reported. The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told.

BARBARA WALTERS: I know that by now, you both have fairly thick skins. But when you hear your husband being booed, the president, at a recent basketball game, how do you feel? FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of being president of the United States -- WALTERS: So, it doesn´t get to you? MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of the job. You know, I don´t really know what more to say, Barbara, except it´s, you know, it´s a hard job. I am fortunate to be living with a man who has a long view of this job. Who understands that in the case of
President Obama said Friday he’s confident that the troubled healthcare rollout won’t be the final word on how his signature legislative achievement is remembered. "I continue to believe and [I´m] absolutely convinced that at the end of the day, people are going to look back at the work we´ve done to make sure that in this country, you don´t go bankrupt when you get sick, that families have that security," the president said in an interview on ABC’s 20/20. "That is going to be a legacy I am extraordinarily proud of." The HealthCare.Gov website went live on Oct. 1, but has been
Mega-donor and Hollywood figure Haim Saban, a longtime Hillary Clinton backer, on Friday said he’d “pitch in with full might” if she launches a likely 2016 campaign, describing a growing consensus that she is President Barack Obama’s “natural successor.” The remarks to Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper came several months after the media tycoon privately commissioned a movie about Clinton upon her departure from the State Department, featuring international figures including Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama singing her praises as Secretary of State. “I hope she will run. She would be a wonderful president,” said Saban, who gave $1 million last
Inside Bright Hope Baptist Church, the luminaries of Philadelphia’s black political world gathered for the funeral of former Representative William H. Gray III in July. Dozens of politicians — city, state and federal — packed the pews as former President Bill Clinton offered a stirring eulogy, quoting Scripture and proudly telling the crowd that he was once described as “the only white man in America who knew all the verses to ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing.’ ” But it was the presence and behavior of Hillary Rodham Clinton that most intrigued former Gov. Edward G. Rendell: During a quiet moment, Mrs.
SACRAMENTO — One longtime critic of federal transportation spending once concluded that it would be less expensive for the government to buy every new transit rider a Jaguar XJ8 than it would be to build certain new rail systems. Unfortunately, California officials may not have realized that the idea of buying people new cars wasn’t a serious proposal as much as a way to illustrate a point about excessive spending. The California Air Resources Board is now embarking on a program that would help poor people buy energy-efficient vehicles. In one scenario posed by the agency, a “voucher” might even pay
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
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.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
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
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
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
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
Nobody could accuse the press of ignoring the fiasco-on-a-server that is HealthCare.gov. The Obamacare website’s woes are dominating coverage on the network news, the cable talk shows, the blogs and, of course, high-octane websites like POLITICO. But did the press do a good job of covering the Affordable Care Act before the health care exchanges went online—sort of—on Oct. 1? Were we adequately warned of the troubles that were to come? And now that HealthCare.gov’s problems are headline news, is the coverage of it any better? Sure, one can find a few examples of one news outlet or another warning of impending
MSNBC´s Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday. The interview is part of Matthews´ "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C. According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington." On Monday our colleagues Carrie Budoff Brown and Jonathan Allen reported that the White House is launching a coordinated campaign to return attention to why the Affordable Care Act
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
