MSNBC Guest Schools Katy Tur On Their Violent Liberal Language – Katy Flips Out


Reported By Wes Walker | 

Since Erick Erickson had been critical of Trump in times past, Katy obviously expected her leading question would provoke another denunciation of the President. He did NOT give the answer she was fishing for.

When his answer was more sophisticated and nuanced than that — and cited examples of the role that DEMOCRATS have been contributors to the ‘rhetoric problem’, even BEFORE Trump was on the scene, she got defensive and whipped out her scolding finger.

How DARE he give a non-partisan answer! Truth bombs like that are dangerously destabilizing to the Media(D)’s carefully constructed ‘Trump-Is-Satan’ Narrative!

Erick dared to criticize their Obamessiah! And the Weather Underground, too! That topic is verboten!

Who said a guest on MSNBC was allowed to invoke history before the day Evil Orange Man came down that fateful escalator? What does he think this is… a frank and open conversation?

With such displays of journalistic objectivity, we couldn’t possibly imagine why the public has been losing confidence in traditional media.

If they’re hoping this will translate into a huge win on the left, they may have a nasty surprise in store for them. That blue wave they used to talk about isn’t so blue anymore.

Slow Death: CNN Dropped Below “Pawn Stars” Channel in Ratings


Reported By Ben Marquis | August 20, 2018 at 4:44pm

By now it has become predictable old news to hear that Fox News Channel defeated their cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC in the weekly ratings, as they have finished number one out of the big three in total average viewers per day for 31 consecutive weeks, according to Adweek.

Nor is it a surprise to hear that Fox beat their rivals in prime time viewership either, as they have done so for 11 consecutive weeks now.

What is somewhat surprising, and incredibly laughable, is that CNN — the formerly vaunted crown jewel of the establishment media — has sunk so low in the ratings that they are losing out to other basic cable networks in terms of prime time viewers, networks with decidedly less important topics to air than the serious news of the day.

The Daily Caller noted that while Fox ranked number one in total prime time viewers for the week of August 6-12 — 2.18 million viewers on the average evening — and were followed closely by MSNBC — 1.75 million viewers — both were trailed significantly by CNN, which averaged only 992,000 viewers during the prime time hours.

That placed CNN at seventh on the list, behind such basic cable networks as Home and Garden Television (1.33 million), USA Network (1.25 million), the History Channel (1.06 million) and TBS Network (1.02 million).

Essentially, CNN’s prime time stars like Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo are drawing fewer viewers than History Channel shows such as “Pawn Stars,” “American Pickers,” “Counting Cars,” “Mountain Men,” and perhaps funniest of all, “Ancient Aliens.”

Indeed, it would appear that more Americans would prefer to watch people haggle over the price of obscure antiques and old cars — or dive into the conspiracy theory of intelligent aliens visiting ancient civilizations on earth to help build the pyramids and teach them other civilization-building knowledge — than watch Cooper or Cuomo prattle on about Russians or bash the Trump administration on a daily basis.

Some of our readers who frequent social media have likely seen the memes of “Ancient Aliens” crazy-haired star Giorgio Tsoukalos stating “I’m not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.”

That meme has recently been transformed in light of the ratings news to now feature Cooper or Cuomo stating, “I’m not saying it was the Russians, but it was probably the Russians.”

It is worth noting that while CNN lost out to the History Channel during prime time hours, the media outlet did manage to beat the History Channel in terms of total day viewers — 674,000 to 548,000. That means that at least some day time viewers seem to prefer watching CNN compare the current administration to Nazis than watching documentaries on actual Nazis during WWII.

So there is that, I guess, that CNN has going for them. Now if only CNN can find a way to woo viewers away from Nickelodeon, HGTV and Investigation Discovery … but they’d still be trailing Fox and MSNBC during the day.

It is also worth pointing out that while Adweek had noted that number one Fox News had seen a slight decline in its total numbers over last year — down 4 percent in total day viewers and down 18 percent among the key 25-54 demographic — CNN saw an even greater decline in their viewer numbers over last year.

Indeed, CNN’s daytime total was off by 13 percent and they fell by 23 percent in terms of the key 25-54 demographic of viewers that advertisers are so fond of.

We are witnessing the slow death of the overtly biased liberal media — which isn’t confined simply to TV, as formerly widely-read legacy newspapers have also seen immense drops in their numbers. This decline has been brought about their own actions, and no amount of kicking and screaming about Russia, Trump is Hitler or racism everywhere is going to save them.

Reporting the news in a straight-forward and objective manner is the only remedy that will save them now, but that might as well be buried beneath an alien spacecraft hidden inside a pyramid or tucked away on the back shelf of a pawn shop, given the media’s continued lurch leftward in spite of their plummeting ratings.

Border Ranchers Shock MSNBC With Facts On Illegal Immigration

A husband and wife who ranch on the Rio Grande river told MSNBC on Tuesday that they believe President Trump is doing the right thing by enforcing border laws.

MSNBC tried to ask the couple a multitude of leading questions about the separation of families when they cross the border illegally, but the ranchers continuously smashed their narrative.

“When you see parents and children separated why do you support the policy that, to many people, appears to be heartless?” MSNBC’s Kerry Sanders asked.

Sanders asked Stephanie Cage, “You’re a mother, you’re a grandmother of seven, um, how do you react when you see that the families are being split apart?”

“Of course it is very upsetting, but I’m as equally upset with the parents for exposing their children to the dangers of smuggling their children across the border,” Cage replied.

The Cage family also debunked the notion that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are fleeing violence, retorting, “That’s very much exaggerated … very few cases are caused by that, I think most of them are coming over here to try to make a better life in this country and all this country has to offer.”

Fox News’ Worst-Rated Show Just Delivered Brutal Punishment to CNN


Reported By Ben Marquis | May 6, 2018 at 2:12pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/fox-news-worst-punishment-cnn/

Of the three major cable news networks, Fox News Channel obviously leans to the right but provides fairly balanced coverage of the news of the day. MSNBC, meanwhile, openly presents itself as left-leaning and provides equally left-leaning news coverage to their liberal viewers. CNN, however, has attempted to portray itself as unbiased and centrist as a media organization, but its news coverage quite obviously skews toward the left. It appears a significant number of viewers have taken notice and are no longer watching based on recent ratings numbers, according to Breitbart.

In fact, the highest-rated primetime program on CNN fell short of the lowest-rated primetime program on FNC, and even lost to a handful of Fox’s afternoon and morning programs.

Those dismal numbers for CNN were revealed in Adweek‘s report of the ratings by Nielsen Media Research for the month of April, numbers that have Fox and MSNBC cheering while CNN looks on from afar.

The best-rated weeknight show for CNN — “Anderson Cooper 360” — placed a distant 24th on the list of most-watched cable news programs. Meanwhile, the lowest-rated Fox News program in the evenings was “Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream,” which came in at 13th on the list.

Much to the dismay of liberals, Fox’s Sean Hannity came in at No. 1 in both total viewers and among the coveted advertising demographic of adults aged 25-54. Hannity was followed by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in both categories, and the top five in total viewers was rounded out by Fox’s Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. Carlson and Ingraham swapped spots in the top five among the key demo.

Spots six through 10 for total viewers were filled respectively by Fox’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “The Five,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” and “Hardball with Chris Matthews.”

Hilariously, morning programs for Fox like “America’s Newsroom” (12th), “Fox and Friends” (14th), “Outnumbered” (16th) and “Happening Now” (18th) all beat CNN’s top-rated show.

Even mid-afternoon Fox programming like “Your World with Neil Cavuto” (17th), “Shepard Smith Reporting” (20th), “Outnumbered Overtime” (22nd) and “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” (23rd) ranked higher in total viewers than Cooper’s program on CNN.

Following Cooper for the most-watched CNN programs at all times of the day within the top 40 were “Erin Burnett Out Front” (27th) and “CNN Tonight” (28th), along with “The Lead with Jake Tapper” (32nd), “Situation Room” (33rd), “CNN Newsroom” (37), “Wolf” (38th), “Inside Politics” (39th) and “At This Hour” (40).

The only Fox News Channel program that CNN beat in terms of total viewers was “Fox and Friends First,” which ranked 42nd on the list — and airs at 4 a.m. Eastern!

The only saving grace among this horrible news for CNN is that they did slightly better among the key 25-54 demo than among total viewers, as Cooper’s show ranked 12th, though he still lost out to Bream’s program — which airs late at 11 p.m. Eastern — which came in at 11th on the list among the demo coveted by advertisers.

In Nielsen’s tally of viewership of all cable networks, not just cable news channels, Fox still emerged as the most-watched cable channel both in primetime and the daytime.

Turner Network Television, which has been airing NBA playoff games since mid April, came in second for total primetime viewers, followed closely by MSNBC in third place. CNN ranked eighth in total primetime viewers for the month, losing out to cable networks such as TBS, HGTV, ESPN and the USA Network.

So perhaps this should be a lesson to any network that purports to be unbiased in its coverage, but is blatantly left-leaning and caters exclusively to liberal Trump-haters with its news coverage. It quickly becomes irrelevant and loses out “bigly” to its competition.

MSNBC Asks Franklin Graham About Trump’s “Sin Problem,” So He Brings Up Obama


Reported by Steven Beyer | January 24, 2018 at 4:05pm

If there’s one network that shouldn’t be questioning someone’s morality, it’s most definitely MSNBC. The hypocrisy

See the source image

Evangelist Franklin Graham

and bias that spews from that network is second to none. So, when they began to question the morality of President Donald Trump, evangelist Franklin Graham had a few words for them.

Over the weekend, son of famous evangelist Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, appeared on MSNBC. Over the course of a fairly lengthy interview, host Alex Witt asked Graham a series of questions regarding President Trump and his policies.

But then, in what would appear to be a “gotcha” question, Witt asked Graham if Trump had a “sin problem.” She recounted the “Access Hollywood” tape and even the porn star with whom Trump allegedly had an affair (an accusation that has yet to be proven).

“I can promise you, he is not President Perfect…and I don’t think I’ve seen a President Perfect yet,” Graham began.

He continued, “He’s not a perfect person, and neither am I.”

His comments in response to the “sin problem” question start at approximately 5:11:

Graham said he’s not holding the president up as the pastor of this country, and that he appreciates the fact that the president has a concern for Christians in this country and around the world. He also said he continues to pray for the president on a continual basis.

Witt then tried to trap Graham by asking, “If he were a Democrat, you would be as forgiving?”

“Sure. Under President Obama, I prayed for him,” Graham recounted. But then, he dropped a nuke. He said that he prayed for Obama even after he, Graham, was targeted by the Obama administration.

Graham’s Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse and Billy Graham were both targeted with IRS audits because they wouldn’t support Obama due to his stance on abortion and same-sex marriage. How does Graham know he was targeted? Both organization got the same IRS audit letter on the very same day. Graham says that it cost him a lot of money to deal with the audit. However, he said that despite being audited, it didn’t stop him from “praying for the man.” This isn’t the first time Graham has said that he prayed for Obama.

In fact, in a Thanksgiving message, Graham told his supporters, “Having just come through a divisive national election, I am urging pastors across this country to lead their congregations in praying daily for our president, Barack Obama … for wisdom, Divine guidance, and that God would accomplish His will and purposes.”

“While politics is noticeably partisan, prayer must never be partisan. Americans need to come together, and people of faith should lead the way, by praying diligently for our leaders, whether or not they agree with them or their policies,” he continued.

Graham also went on Fox News on Sunday and said that Trump has done more to defend Christianity than any other president in modern history.

“I find him to be a person concerned about the religious freedoms of Americans, but not just us here in this country, but he’s concerned about the religious freedom of people in other countries,” he said.

So, is President Trump the perfect president? No. But like Graham said, there has never been a perfect president, and there never will be.

Although if you ask liberals, I’m sure they would give you a couple of contenders for a “President Perfect.” But then again, liberals are living in a world quite disconnected from reality.

MSNBC Guest: Hurricane Harvey A ‘Man-Made Disaster’ [VIDEO]


Reported by Photo of Amber Athey Amber Athey | Media Reporter | 5:05 PM 08/31/2017

An MSNBC guest asserted Thursday that natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Katrina are actually “man-made disasters.”

Rick Stengel, former under secretary of state for public diplomacy, blamed politicians and city planners for the extent of the damage caused by Harvey and Katrina.

“Part of the problem with Harvey, like Katrina, is these are man-made disasters in part because the thousands of buildings that have been built in Houston on flood plains–on 100 year flood plains–over the past ten years, these are public officials and unregulated expansion that has made this area vulnerable,” Stengel claimed.

Stengel then seemed to criticize the plan of officials to rebuild the city of Houston “bigger and better” after the flooding subsides.

 

“To me, it’s not about building bigger and better, it’s about building to a 500 and 1000 year plan like Amsterdam and other cities are built,” he said.

MSNBC Accidentally Proves that the Democrat Party is Toast

Columbia Law Professor Explains why Donald Trump Jr. did Nothing Wrong


Reported By Onan Coca | July 14, 2017

MSNBC had an interesting conversation this morning with Columbia University Law Professor Richard Briffault who told the hosts and their viewers that basically everything that Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner have been accused of is wrong. Legally, technically, wrong.

As Briffault expertly, and concisely, explains neither man is guilty of “treason,” “perjury,” giving “false statements,” or “colluding” with Russia. Based on all of the “evidence” gathered, the worst that can be said is that Jared Kushner might have lied or he might just be forgetful and Donald Trump Jr. showed bad judgment.

The MSNBC hosts were visibly saddened.

RICHARD BRIFFAULT, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL: Treason is a little extreme for this, I mean it is not clear — [Russia] may not be our friend, but it is not clear they are our enemy. We are not at war. It is not clear this violates — it is against the U.S. government. So I am not up to treason yet.

STEPHANIE RUHLE, MSNBC: So take ‘T’ off the table. What about the ‘P’? Perjury definition: ‘A person under oath states any material which he does not believe to be true.’ Would be constituted as perjury. 

BRIEFAULT: Well, with the possible exception of Jared Kushner and the forms he filled out to get his security clearance, I’m not sure any of this has been under oath yet. On those, maybe it is not perjury, but there is a crime of lying to the U.S. government, but you would have to prove he was knowingly and maliciously misleading, and his claim is to say he just forgot. So we’re in a gray area there. 

STEPHANIE RUHLE: So can we add in? The TIME Magazine [cover story this week] currently has Don Jr. on the cover, but in their piece they say that in the email chain between Don Jr. and the Russian intermediary, they say ‘Kushner maintains he did not read to the bottom of the email invitation to the meeting, so he didn’t understand the Russian promise it contained, that was on the fourth page. And yet, the subject line says ‘Russia, Clinton Private and Confidential.’ Does that argument that he didn’t scroll down hold any water? 

BRIFFAULT: Is is irrelevant. The thing was that he was at the meeting and he didn’t report having been at the meeting –as I understand it– in his intial filing to get the security clearance.

So, at the very least, he has corrected that, but there is some question about how knowing that was. So, perjury no, lying to the government maybe.

ALI VELSHI, MSNBC: We have another one: False statements. This is about a person knowingly and willfully making any materially false statement or representation within any of the three branches of government. This is obviously a lower standard, but does this apply here? 

BRIFFAULT: This relates to the filing for the security clearance. It is a simlar kind of question. It was a false statement. Did he know it was false, or did he just forget? And it has been corrected. It may still affect whether he should have a security clearance. But it is not quite up to the level of a crime.

OK. Did you get all of that? Basically Donald Trump Jr. did nothing that was “actionably” wrong. Ali Velshi tries one more time and asks Professor Briffault about collusion, and Briffault crushes Velshi’s liberal dreams…

BRIFFAULT: Collusion isn’t really a crime, I think we are getting at things like ‘conspiracy to commit a crime,’ or coordination of campaign finance stuff. Collusion is more of a political term than a legal term.

This Constitutional Law Prof Knock Down MSNBC’s ‘Obstruction Of Justice’ Narrative In Less Than Two Minutes

Screenshot/MSNBC

Constitutional law professor Elizabeth Price Foley spent her Sunday afternoon knocking down the “obstruction of justice” narrative on MSNBC.

The Harvard-educated Foley calmly explained to frustrated MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian why President Trump would have been legally allowed to suggest former FBI Director James Comey let go of the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and why Trump was well within his constitutional authority to later fire Comey.

“If the American people are unhappy with the way Trump acted,” Foley said, “their two options under our constitutional system are to push for impeachment or to vote somebody else into office in 2020.”

“To the extent that people want try to make this obstruction of justice, there’s a million different layers why this is not technically obstruction of justice, either as a statutory matter or a constitutional matter,” Foley said. “But this point particularly about a ‘corrupt intent’ is even worse. Because think about it, the president also has the authority under Article II [of the Constitution] to pardon people, but we don’t say for example that the president can’t pardon a certain person because he has a corrupt intent, he likes the guy he’s known him for a long time so therefore he can’t pardon him.”

“The pardon power like the power to head the investigative, or the rest of the executive branch like the FBI, like the DOJ is a plenary discretionary authority of the president. He can pardon anybody for any reason he wants, corrupt purpose or no, and he can direct the investigation or non- investigation corrupt motive or no,” she added.

“You don’t put discretionary limits on constitutional authority ap and if you do you invite Article III non-elected non-accountable judges to second-guess the president’s authority. You never want to have a constitutional regime that sets up that way. We the people can either not vote the president in or we can impeach him, those are the political pushback mechanisms.”

4 Supremes alert America: ‘Trouble is coming’


Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts

America needs to prepare for a major governmental assault on religious liberty in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling, but those standing against the tide can find plenty of inspiration from those who pioneered the concept of religious freedom at the American founding.

Michael Farris is co-founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and author of “The History of Religious Liberty.” The book details the fierce fight for the religious freedom provisions that eventually emerged in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Farris said history is critical to understand in the wake of the marriage decision and the brand new threats to liberty being advocated on the political left.

The day after the Obergefell v. Hodges decision was handed down, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., told MSNBC she believed religious liberty was a much narrower concept than has been understood for centuries. “Certainly the First Amendment says that in institutions of faith that there is absolute power to, you know, to observe deeply held religious beliefs,” Baldwin said. “But I don’t think it extends far beyond that. We’ve seen the set of arguments play out in issues such as access to contraception.”More Evidence

She added, “Should it be the individual pharmacist whose religious beliefs guides whether a prescription is filled? In this context, they’re talking about expanding this far beyond our churches and synagogues to businesses and individuals across this country. I think there are clear limits that have been set in other contexts, and we ought to abide by those in this new context across America.”What did you say 05.jpg

Michael Farris’ “History of Religious Liberty” is a sweeping literary work that passionately traces the epic history of religious liberty across three centuries, from the turbulent days of medieval Europe to colonial America and the birth pangs of a new nation. 

Farris is dumbfounded at Baldwin’s reading of the First Amendment. “The ignorance of members of Congress and the U.S. Senate never ceases to baffle me. How did they get there in the first place without taking a basic civics course? Or maybe they have and they just don’t believe it,” Farris said. “This senator has just simply walked away from not only the text of the Constitution and the meaning of the Constitution but our great American traditions.”

In fact, Farris believes Baldwin’s concept of religious liberty is almost completely backward. “It is an institutional right,” he said. “Churches have religious freedom, but it’s primarily an individual right. The Supreme Court – back in the day when it used to think straight – would say things like it’s not up to the government or the courts to determine which individual within a faith has correctly understood the demands of that faith. You’re allowed to go your own way.”SCOTUS GIANT

In response to the court decision, Govs. Greg Abbott, R-Texas, and Sam Brownback, R-Kansas, have announced their states will vigorously protect the religious liberty of the people. Farris applauds the efforts but warns those policies won’t stop all government intrusion into Americans’ lives or the practices of religious institutions. “That’s a good thing. It limits the areas where a church or a school can expect an attack. But a Christian college residing in one of those states can still expect an attack from the IRS or from the accrediting association or from the U.S. Department of Education if they don’t go along with the federal edicts on this,” said Farris, who warned schools and churches would be wise to protect themselves legally now given the dire warnings offered in the dissents to the Obergefell decision. “We have four justices on the Supreme Court effectively warning all the religious institutions, ‘You better do something about this because trouble’s coming.’ I don’t think that’s an idle speculation,” he said. “That’s about as strong of a warning from about as high a source as you can possibly get.”

<div>Please enable Javascript to watch this video</div>Farris expects the Religious Freedom Restoration Act to provide federal protection for Christian individuals and organizations, but only to the extent that Justice Anthony Kennedy acknowledges it.

In “The History of Religious Freedom,” Farris details the long, unlikely triumph of religious freedom in America’s founding. Just as in Europe, colonial America witnesses various denominations cracking down on others.

Modern history textbooks credit enlightenment thinking for the emergence of religious liberty in America. To Farris, that’s academic fantasy, cp 11and true scholars have actually debunked that notion. “It’s simply not true,” he said. “I lay out the historical evidence in great detail. One Harvard historian around the 1920s said the evidence that people who are indifferent to religion, that basically is the enlightenment crowd, were the cause of religious liberty is an unsustainable argument. There is simply no evidence for that point.” He added, “It was people who cared very deeply. It was grassroots kinds of Christians fighting establishment kind of Christians who gave us religious liberty for everybody. The battle for religious liberty wasn’t settled on the Mayflower.”

Protections for the free exercise of religion were anything but guaranteed in America. Farris said the colonial government of Virginia teamed with the Anglican Church to punish dissenters as late as the 1770s. In 1776, Virginia’s Declaration of Rights became the first declaration of religious liberty anywhere in the world.

In 1789, Congress approved the Bill of Rights and sent them to the states for approval. That same year, the French Revolution unfolded. The upheaval in the two countries has long been compared, especially as the U.S. moved forward with stability and France subsequently endured the Reign of Terror and the Napoleonic era.

Farris said there are key reasons for the very different results of revolutions rooted in freedom, including America’s much deeper respect for personal religious liberty and vastly different views about the nature of man.

“France believed that man was perfectable and that we could create our own utopia, whereas the American Revolution followed the Christian biblical idea that all men are sinners and that’s why you needed limited government, because you can’t trust any man in government to rule faithfully forever,” he explained.

According to Farris, the greatest parallel between the colonial struggle for religious freedom and today’s cultural battles is where the battle lines are drawn. Religious freedom was not championed by the ruling class. “It was a monumental battle,” he said. “It was the common people, who believed in Jesus, who believed the Bible was the authority for their faith and their life, who really fought the war and won. Many of them paid with their lives.”

Farris said the founding generation should serve as inspiration for the religious freedom fights of this century.

“Common people armed with bravery and faith in God can turn anything around,” he said. “I’ve seen it in my own life through the homeschooling movement. We were outnumbered and outgunned by the teachers’ unions day after day after day. We won battle after battle after battle because (we were) common people armed with the Constitution of the United States and belief in the Word of God.”

‘Black Lives Matter’: We Will ‘Shut Down’ GOP Convention If We Can


waving flagBy Mark Finkelstein | July 25, 2015

Shades of 1968 and the Days of Rage? Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has announced that “any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will.”

Appearing on today’s Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, Cullors also blithely spoke of “the murder of Mike Brown” in Ferguson, MO. Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors’ characterization.  This despite the fact that even Eric Holder’s Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown.

Question: what would be the effect on the election if Black Lives Matter seriously disrupted the Republican convention?

JANET MOCK: What action do you want to see the candidates take for what the movement is calling for?

PATRISSE CULLORS: I think first off we want candidates to actually call movement leaders sit and have meetings with us, have a conversation with us about what’s happened this last year since the murder of Mike Brown.

. . .

MOCK: What is your plan for the Republican candidates specifically after Jeb Bush and his idea of saying that #black lives matter is just a slogan?

CULLORS: Yes. And we — many folks have asked why would you go after the Democratic party? They’re on our side. What about the Republican party? And trust and believe that any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will. We will make sure that our voices are made loud and clear. And we also want to be clear that the Democratic party isn’t off the hook.

Ann Coulter Letter: There’s A Reason We Mostly Hear About ‘Micro-Aggressions’

There's A Reason We Mostly Hear About 'Micro-Aggressions'

The massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston by an evil psycho is a hideous thing. The case is especially sickening because the victims were chosen specifically because of their race. Thank God it’s extremely rare for whites to target black people for attack.

And yet the public is being told by The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC and Salon that the Charleston massacre is one small example of white racists rampaging through the country. It’s like saying we have an epidemic of men flying gyrocopters onto Capitol Hill. Yes, there’s that one time, but I notice you keep citing the same case. 

In The Washington Post, for example, columnist Lonnae O’Neal blamed the Charleston attack on “white supremacy,” claiming that “racial sickness is all around us.” (I guess the one upside of the horror in South Carolina is that we can FINALLY have a national conversation about race.) insane

The media’s WHITES ARE TERRORIZING BLACKS campaign reflects reality as accurately as the media’s other campaign, WHITE MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE RAPING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!

In a country of more than 300 million people, everything will happen eventually. That doesn’t make it a trend. Go up to any ordinary, sentient person and ask: Which race assaults the other race more?

Remember the “knockout game” — or as its devotees called it, “polar bear hunting”? Black teenagers would go looking for white people to knock unconscious with a single punch, videotape the attacks and post them online. The knockout game was a real trend — which the media denied was a trend.

Just last month, we saw videos of white reporters from the Daily Caller being mugged by black men in Baltimore.

Ask around. You might be surprised at how many whites you know have been physically attacked by a black person at least once in their lives.

Ordinary people keep hearing that we are in the middle of an epidemic of white-on-black violence and think, Surely the media wouldn’t be making this up, so I must be misinformed.

According to a preposterously, laughably, ridiculously bogus report on “hate crimes” produced by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, blacks are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes than whites are. It would be like a government report asserting that most rapes are committed by elderly white women. Holder’s DOJ got to the desired outcome by:

(1) Defining “hate crime” only as those in which the perp uses a racial epithet. (Because that’s what people fear most: I don’t mind getting the crap kicked out of me — as long as no one calls me a “cracker”!)

(2) Defining Hispanic perpetrators as “white.” (Yes, according to our federal government, Hispanics are “Hispanic” when they are victims of crimes, but “white” when they are the perpetrators.)

(3) Defining less than 0.1 percent of all violent crimes as “hate crimes.” (According to the FBI’s detailed crime victimization report, there were about 1.2 million violent crimes in 2012, but Holder’s Justice Department characterized less than 1,000 of those as “hate crimes.”)

The FBI’s crime victimization surveys tell a very different story, one more in line with a normal person’s life experience. In 2008, the most recent year for which such data seems to have been collected, FBI surveys show that, out of 520,161 interracial violent crimes, blacks committed 429,444 of them against whites, while whites committed 90,717 of them against blacks.Picture4

In other words, blacks commit more than 80 percent of all interracial violent crime.

Going for the element of surprise, columnist Brit Bennett recently complained in The New York Times that “white violence is unspoken and unacknowledged” by the media. Yes, I barely heard a thing about such alleged white-on-black crimes as: Tawana Brawley (hoax), the Duke lacrosse gang rape (hoax), Trayvon Martin (self-defense), Ferguson (hoax) and Eric Garner (justified police arrest). Other than the wall-to-wall, 24/7 coverage for months on end, there was barely a peep out of the media about these cases. The media will pounce on any suspicion of a white-on-black crime, spend a year being hysterical about it, and, if it turns out to be a false alarm, refuse to apologize, before quickly moving on to the next hoax.

The Charleston church shooting is the first case in a very long time in which blacks really were targeted by a white person because of their race (and had the misfortune of being in a gun-free zone). Even Bennett had to reach back to stories her grandmother told her about the Ku Klux Klan (100 percent Democratic) to come up with a previous example of whites terrorizing blacks.

The Charleston attack was a hideous, sickening crime. But that’s why we should thank our lucky stars that it was so unusual. White-on-black violence is freakishly rare everywhere in America, except liberal imaginations.freedom combo 2

New black hashtag, #WeWillShootBack, urges retaliation: What could go wrong? (Video)

The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter has given way to a new, more proactive meme promising — to paraphrase a memorable line by Sean Connery’s character in “The Untouchables” — that for every one of ours they send to the morgue, we’ll send two of theirs. The hashtag — #WeWillShootBack — is reportedly intended as a coping mechanism for black Americans who feel under siege following the massacre in Charleston last week.

According to Mashable, Taurean Brown, the creator, explains that the age-old advice to Americans in trouble — call the police — is no longer an option for blacks. He is quoted as saying that police killings of unarmed minorities occur too often for conventional law enforcement to be trusted. Said Brown:

We’re often the first ones that are called upon to be nonviolent. I want to change the narrative to say that we have the right to defend ourselves, just like every human being.

The hashtag, which is borrowed from title of a recently published book by Georgia State University African studies professor Akinyele Umoja, has appeared in 25,000 tweets since Wednesday’s murders, including the following:

tweet01

War DrumsBrown is quick to point out that he isn’t advocating the random shooting of white people:

What I’m saying is we have a right to organize ourselves, and defend our humanity. We’re taking the power into our own hands, and not allowing another entity go do that for us.

One anticipates a negative reaction to this campaign from the left, which tends to be anti-gun. Addressing the Charleston massacre in particular, one representative of that camp, veteran Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, said Friday on MSNBC:

I cannot imagine the horror that could’ve occurred if people were sitting around with concealed weapons, this thing started and you had a full-scale gunfight. You might not even have three survivors.

A video of his remarks follows:

Obviously, blacks have the same Second Amendment right to bear arms as all other Americans, but the still-anecdotal premise on which this meme is based — that blacks are being singled out by law enforcement and/or whites in general — should give everyone pause.

Black Dallas pastor makes ISIS-style threat

Civil Race Both

ronald-wright-600A black pastor has threatened an ISIS-style attack against law enforcement in response to a video showing a Texas officer forcefully pinning a bikini-clad teenage girl and pulling a gun on a group of juveniles at a pool party.

A cell-phone video of the incident has gone viral. But now another video, equally disturbing to some, is starting to make the rounds.

Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, warned Americans in a press conference carried live by MSNBC that a domestic terror attack is coming. He spoke at a rally Monday outside the McKinney Police Department. “We’re setting the stage for a terrorist attack in this country. And the group is not going to be ISIS; it’s going to be USIS, us against these injustice law officers and people continuing to allow racism to grow into this city,” he said on Thursday.

Watch the comments in video clip below: v01

Picture1According to its website, the Dallas-based Justice Seekers Texas was founded by Wright in February 2010 as a “Civil Rights and Social Justice Organization which focuses on Civil Rights and Social Justice (for all citizens), Education, Health, Employee Rights, Veterans Affairs, Domestic Violence, Juvenile Delinquency/Recidivism, Assisting ex-felons with employment opportunities, rights of the incarcerated, probationers, and parolees.”  Wright describes himself on the website as a civil-rights leader and community organizer for social-justice causes. He also serves as senior pastor of God’s Community Church of Joy.

WND reached out to Wright Tuesday to ask if he wanted to clarify his comments.

“I was talking about police involved in racial discrimination. I have always stood up for police; it’s not like I’m against all police, because we need the police. So it wasn’t a terroristic threat on police,” Wright told WND.

“But those that have refuse to stop this kind of injustice, it has to stop,” he said. “It wasn’t an attack on the police department, because all of the recent incidents against the police we’ve seen in the media; it wasn’t the fault of the police. When you actually looked at what happened, they were justified in acting the way they acted in some of those cases.”truth

Wright called on the mayor to fire the officer, Cpl. Eric Casebolt, who threw the 15-year-old girl to the ground and drew his weapon. Wright said his group has contacted the U.S. Justice Department and is having it monitor the situation. But on Tuesday, Casebolt resigned his position.

To Wright, that’s just more proof that he was guilty of unprofessional conduct, at least, and a criminal act at worse. “If this officer was right by what he did, why would you resign?” he asked.

Wright said he’s the type of activist who stands up against injustice, regardless of the victim’s color. “I stood up for a white police officer and their chief and fought for their chief because a black city councilwoman was picking on him, and she wouldn’t let up on him. What they did was, they took his salary off the city budget, and ended up paying it for the rest of the year … but we stood for him. I’m going to fight discrimination no matter what color you are.”Picture3

Wright also protested when a 52-year-old white man, Bobby Bennett, was gunned down by Dallas police in 2013, according to a Dallas Morning News report. Police said Bennett came at them with a knife, but a neighbor’s surveillance video did not support that narrative.

In the pool party case, Wright said there could also be more to the story, but from what he knows now, the officer was out of line.

“None of these children are perfect, but we’re reaping what we sow. They should have been more respectful. But when you can’t raise your children at home, and the government can’t raise them, what do you expect? You’re reaping what you sow,” he said. “Government is responsible for that. I’m not a hater of police, and everyone in Dallas knows that. They know I’ve stood up for their police department, but this could have been handled a lot better according to protocol.’

“And also I’m waiting for the 9-1-1 call to hear what was said. At the end of the day, that is going to determine if he was justified in acting the way he did. I’m hoping that is the fact rather than it being a racist move.”you should not

Wright said the nation is coming apart at the seams, racially, with race relations at a dismal level. Why is it when this country is attacked, like on 9/11, we can all become brothers, we’re family,” he said, “then the minute it’s over we go back to the old mentality we have? Those who continue to do racial injustice are the ones I was talking about, not all police. I don’t hate police,” he said. “I support them.”Call-911

The original cell-phone video of the pool party Friday night went viral. The incident started when two individuals were involved in an altercation and the cops were called. A dozen officers responded. One, Casebolt, appeared to act more aggressively than the others, but some eyewitnesses said he acted reasonably given the chaos of the situation. WFAA-TV in Dallas reported that some of the parents whose children appeared in the viral video are angry that Casebolt not only used force, but cursed at the teens before pulling out his weapon.

Jahi Adisa Bakari’s daughter was at the pool party when chaos erupted. “The fact of the matter is, the officer recklessly attacks this young lady, who was following his instructions,” she told WFAA.

Clinton Defender Howard Dean Loses Morning Joe

Howard Dean MSNBC

Wow. First David Brock and now Howard Dean. Is there something in the water at MSNBC?

Dean is the former chair of the DNC, a role now filled by our favorite Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As a long time party loyalist, Dean appeared on Morning Joe yesterday and attempted to downplay new scandalous revelations regarding the Clintons.

Hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough could barely contain their skepticism.

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon:

Mika Tires of Howard Dean’s ‘Jihad’ for Clintons: ‘The Facts Are The Facts’

The New York Times reported Thursday that the Clinton Global Initiative accepted millions of dollars from a Russian oil company when the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, was approving a deal that would give Russians control of the company Uranium One and bring Vladimir Putin “closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.” The charges are part of Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash.

Dean, rather than directly address the Clintons’ latest problem, went after Schweizer for taking money from “billionaires” who “support Ted Cruz,” essentially arguing that anything his book revealed should be dismissed because of his conservative political leanings.

Yet, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough pointed out outlets such as the New York Times and others were doing legitimate reporting off the accusations in Schweizer’s work.

“So forget the author at this point,” Brzezinski said. “If the facts are true, we need to pursue that. You can go on your little jihad against the author, but it’s not going to change the facts. The facts are the facts.”Liberalism a mental disorder 2

Watch the exchange:

v04

Dean also recently lashed out at a New York Times reporter on this subject, calling the Times sloppy.

Evan McMurry of Mediaite:

NY Times Reporter Snaps at Howard Dean for Calling Paper ‘Sloppy’

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters wasn’t taking guff from former DNC chair Howard Dean on Morning Joe Thursday morning.

Dean was there to defend Hillary Clinton against charges leveled in a new book and reported out by the Times that the Clinton Global Initiative took undisclosed funds from a Russian oil company as that company was securing State Department approval for deals in the U.S. The article is part of access deals secured by the Times and others to Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash. Clinton surrogates have spent the past few days criticizing Schweizer as a conservative ideologue funded by right-wing Clinton opponents.

“In general New York Times has been sloppy,” Dean said. “Particularly their political writers. I use the Times as an example in journalism classes, because by the fifth paragraph in any political story…they’re substituting their judgment for news.”

The Dumbest 57 Seconds Ever On TV?

All due respect to Adam, but his understatement is almost a scandal. We’ve posted a lot of incredibly stupid sound bites from MSNBC and other places around here, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a dumber exchange. I don’t know who the guy is making the astoundingly obtuse comparison between Jerry Falwell and a bunch of cold-blooded murderers, but as incandescently stupid as that analogy is it’s eclipsed by Wagner’s smug, knowing nods as he talks.

If I follow her response correctly she is saying that we focus on anti-Muslim blasphemy disproportionately because it is so much more “controversial” and “incendiary.”more evidence

Well, uh, yes. I guess that’s true. But the reason mockery of Islam is more controversial is because people get killed over it!

To compare Falwell’s lawsuit to these murderers isn’t just astoundingly, jaw-droppingly, stupid. Doing so misses just about every important moral, legal and factual distinction that one can miss. But Wagner doesn’t think that’s good enough. She had to take it a half-step farther and really emphasize how unfair it is that people make it seem like only Muslims are thin-skinned about such things.  ​more evidence

(I will indulge as a matter of charity, that Wagner merely mispoke as she tried to couch reality in MSNBC-friendly euphemisms. “Controversial” and “incendiary” might be her way of saying “barbaric terrorism.” But even if that’s the case, it doesn’t excuse her from failing to respond to this idiotic comparison with the words: “How dare you sir, that is outrageous.”)

I was never a huge fan of Falwell’s, but I always thought his lawsuit had some merit, and was at least understandable in human terms. Also, for what it’s worth, I don’t think it had much to do with his religion. He filed a personal defamation lawsuit, I’m pretty sure.  But here’s the thing: when he lost the lawsuit you know what he did? Nothing. Oh I’m sure he griped about it. Wouldn’t you? What he didn’t do was lead a goon squad to Hustler’s offices and murder Larry Flynt and his staff. That’s a pretty meaningful distinction, I think.

VIDEO: Sarah Palin Absolutely SHREDS ‘Uber-Uppity’ Liberal Feminists


October 24, 2014 By Greg Campbell

obama isis

The age of dreamy-eyed admiration for President Obama is over. Even the staunchest supporter of President Obama can only muster meager defenses for his failed ZPalinpresidency and increasingly, more and more liberals are turning their back on the president who once promised hope and change, but delivered only excuses and poor results.

For example, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown recently appeared on MSNBC to blast the president and his relationship with women supporters, saying,

“The fact is that Obama’s down with everybody, let’s face it, there’s a reason. And I think that particularly for women. I don’t think he makes them feel safe. I think they’re feeling unsafe… They feel unsafe about Ebola. What they feel unsafe about is the government response to different crises. 

“And I think that they’re beginning to feel a bit that Obama’s like that guy in the corner office, you know, who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says this has to change, doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change, then it goes wrong and he’s blaming everybody. So there’s a slight sense of that.” cause of death

However, according to Tea Party star Sarah Palin, liberal feminists like Brown are partially to blame for the poor relations between women and the Obama Administration.

Palin called Brown’s comments, “ironic, because that little lady Tina Brown, she’s such a big part of the problem; she and her ilk being so uber-uppity, so cocksure of their untouchable elitism, they support liberal men who have kept women unfortunately embracing this lie that they should be dependent upon government.”

“Tina Brown, chick, you’re a day late and a dollar short,” she continued. “They’ve been beating the crap out of strong, commonsense, smart, conservative women for years, she and her ilk.” States Formal Sacred Cow of Policital Correctness

When host Sean Hannity noted that these same feminists take issue with Mitt Romney holding resumes of women in a binder, but turn a blind eye to the misogyny of the Muslim world as a function of multiculturalism, Palin just went-off on the apparent hypocrisy:

“These maladroit fake feminist women, they have such a double standard, so hypocritical, that they would support anyone who would have sympathy for Muslims who do treat women so poorly, so inhumanely, and not do all that they can to stop the rise of radical Islam that would adversely affect America’s interests…’

“They support somebody like, say, Barack Obama, whose failed policies have kept them dependent on a failed government that has led to recently, you know, one in five families being on food stamps, 44 million Americans not finding a good job, more latchkey children than ever in this country because of a devalued dollar based on liberal economic policies leading to the cost-of-living rising and women being in the workforce whether they want to be or not. These women, their sympathies are aligned in the wrong party.” 

Palin is absolutely correct; while Democrats use liberal feminists as vehicles to further their narrative concerning a fictitious Republican war on women, these same feminists simply refuse to offer an objective analysis of the effects liberalism has had on women. Now, after 6 years of an Obama presidency, some are suddenly awakening to the realization that increased government dependence has achieved the opposite of what feminism has strived to achieve and has made women less independent and less secure in the world.

Kudos to Mrs. Palin for calling out liberal feminists like Brown.

VIDEO: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Just Gave Obama Some Advice; You Will Not Believe Your Ears

Chris.Matthews
One of the biggest race card abusers is MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, whose debating skills are so lacking that the only way he can seemingly win an argument is to call anyone of an opposing view a “racist,” either through insinuation, or blatant bluntness.  

His all racism, all the time, program Hardball, is nothing more than an Obama Propaganda front, with the pasty white Matthews carrying the race card and inserting it in places where it should never be used, all while cheering on his “Dear Leader” like a gushing and overly excited high school cheerleader.

For example, in August, Matthews praised Obama’s threat to use his “pen and phone” to unconstitutionally issue amnesty to thousands of illegal aliens, saying the illegal act would be “like the Emancipation Proclamation.”

Therefore, when you watch the advice that Matthews just gave to Obama, your jaw will drop in amazement. Matthews actually said that Obama should stop “pandering to the Hispanic vote and liberals.”

Al Sharpton Demands…Voter ID?

Al-Sharpton-Yelling

Look at this face. Is there anything “REVERENT” there? Who is he ordained by? I want to stay as far away from that organization as possible.

Looks like ‘Reverend’ Al and the Obama sycophants at MSNBC are not too happy about Rush Limbaugh being named ‘Author of the Year’ by the Children’s Book Council. The frequently unintelligible host devoted a segment of his relatively obscure show to mock the win by the conservative talk radio king and call. Sharpton suggested a recount with the voting children being made to produce a photo ID to make sure there was no voter fraud.hater up

Joining him in this pathetic display of faux journalism was Abby Huntsman, daughter for mega-RINO Jon Huntsman, and Zerlina Maxwell. When asked if there was funny business with the voting and whether kids actually did vote for Limbaugh, Maxwell responded, “Absolutely, 100% kids did not vote for Rush Limbaugh over Divergent, the blockbuster movie and book.” I suppose Zerlina looked into a crystal ball, or perhaps she consulted MSNBC’s own Krystal Ball, to determine unequivocally that kids did not cast votes for “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.”  

Huntsman, the faux Republican on MSBNC’s staff, suggested that Rush bought half of the books himself so that he could qualify for the award.

hater up

Maybe ol’ Al is simply jealous that Rush not only writes award winning books, but can also speak eloquently. Based upon Al’s lack of command of the English language, I would imagine he has just as much difficulty with writing as he does speaking.

WATCH Al’s rant, but turn down your speakers a bit. Al’s typical speaking manner is yelling.

New Obama promise: If you like your life, you can keep it

New Obama promise: If you like your life, you can keep it

Ann CoulterBy: Ann Coulter   2/19/2014 04:50 PM

Liberals are winning wild praise for their candor in admitting problems with Obamacare. It shows you the level of honesty people have come to expect of our liberal friends. Now, liberals are applauded for not lying through their teeth about something.

What are they supposed to say? This Obamacare website is fantastic! And really, haven’t you already read all the magazines in your current doctor’s office anyway?

The New York Times has described Obama’s repeated claim that you could keep your insurance plan and keep your doctor under Obamacare as a mere slip of the tongue: “Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that.”

Misspoke? How exactly does one misspeak, word for word, dozens of times, over and over again?

That wasn’t misspeaking — it was a deliberate, necessary lie. Even Democrats couldn’t have voted for Obamacare if Americans had known the truth. It was absolutely vital for Obama to lie about people being able to keep their insurance and their doctors.

Of course, it was difficult for voters to know the truth because every time Republicans would try to tell them, the White House and the media would rush in and call the critics liars.

The White House posted a specific refutation of the “disinformation” about not being able to keep your doctor or insurance plan that was being disseminated by Republicans “to scare people.” Their proof consisted of a video of Obama clearly stating, “If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.”

A video of someone asserting the very fact in dispute does not rise to the level of “evidence,” but it was more than enough for MSNBC.

Death and TaxesEven when pretending to be critical of Obamacare, liberals lie about the real problems. They tell us they’re worried about the percentage of young people signing up for Obamacare. The mix of young and old people in Obamacare is completely irrelevant. It won’t help if a lot of young people sign up because their premiums are negligible.

To keep the system afloat, what Obamacare really needs is lots of healthy people, preferably healthy older people. Their premiums are astronomical — and they won’t need much medical treatment.

Premiums are set by your age, not your health. It doesn’t matter if you never go to the doctor. Obamacare punishes you for having a healthy lifestyle. The Obamacare tax is a massively regressive poll tax on the middle-aged and the middle class.

Apart from those who are subsidized, everyone pays the exact same amount in penalties or insurance premiums for his age group. It doesn’t matter if you don’t make as much money as Bill Gates. Any 58-year-old male who doesn’t qualify for a subsidy will pay the same Obamacare tax as Gates.

When Margaret Thatcher tried to impose the same tax per person, as a “community charge,” there were riots in the street.

Our extremely progressive tax system, where nearly half the country pays no income tax at all, and the other half pays about 40 percent of their income, may not be fair. But most people also don’t think it’s fair to tax a guy making $80,000 a year the identical amount as one making $80 million a year. That’s exactly what Obamacare does.

With Obamacare, the Democratic Party has foisted the most regressive tax possible on America. This ruthless assault on the middle class is all so we can have a health care system more like every other country has.

Until now, the United States has had the highest survival rates in the world for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cancer comparisons are the most useful because all Western countries keep careful records for this disease.

For all types of cancers, European men have only a 47.3 percent five-year survival rate, compared to a 66.3 percent survival rate for American men.

European women have only a 55.8 percent chance of being alive five years after being diagnosed with any type of cancer, compared to 62.9 percent of American women.

American survival rates for breast, prostate, thyroid and skin cancer are higher than 90 percent. Europeans do not have a 90 percent survival rate for one of those cancers.

The European rates are even worse than they sound because many cancers are not discovered until the victim’s death — twice as many as in the U.S. All those cancers were excluded from the study.

Canadian cancer survival rates aren’t much better than the European rates — and they’ve been able to sneak into to the U.S. for treatment! Women in the U.S. have a 61 percent survival rate for all cancers, compared to a 58 percent survival rate in Canada. Men in the U.S. have a 57 percent survival rate compared to 53 percent in Canada.

That’s why your insurance premiums have to go through the roof and your Obamacare tax is the same as Bill Gates’. So across the world, we’ll all be equal, dying of cancer, heart disease and diabetes as often as everyone else.

It’s not that Obama doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism; it’s that he wants to end it.

Only Democrats
