The Glass House

July 29, 2010 by  

The Glass House

In the wake of the Georgia (where I reside) primary on July 20, I was going to cobble together some salient thoughts about the American system of electoral politics and the inevitable nastiness that goes foot-in-mouth along with it.

And then web content impresario Andrew Breitbart dove headfirst into seriously hot water last week. Breitbart evidently doctored a video tape of United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) official Shirley Sherrod to make her seem racist. At the time, Sherrod was speaking to the NAACP, so many conservatives assumed she was as racially mistuned as her audience.

Liberal outrage over Breitbart’s shameful (alleged) misdeeds turned the story into a national headline. But while liberals nationwide howled with rage, another story broke the same day. And this one was a real Daisy Cutter: The Daily Caller (DC) broke the news that the mainstream media (MSM) was playing dirty for Barack Obama.

The DC piece included predictably self-important journalists brazenly discussing the best methods to protect poor Obama from evil right-wing bastards. Thus did my musings on choosing between “least stomach-churningly awful” candidates at the ballot box get shuffled into my computer’s hard drive next to the “gourmet meals you can make in the microwave” recipes.

To whit:

During the 2008 Presidential campaign we were introduced to a fine Chicago clergyman named Jeremiah Wright. Rev. Wright presided over a fine congregation in a fine Midwestern city. Among his fine congregants was a fine U.S. Senator named Barack Obama. Fine. Except that Rev. Wright doesn’t feel fine about many of us. In fact, Rev. Wright has a rather poor opinion of:

  • Jews.
  • Republicans.
  • The LAPD (groundbreaking, I know).
  • “Uncle” Clarence Thomas (and the “closeted Klan court”).
  • Condoleeza Rice (he called her “Condoskeezer—not sure what that means, but I doubt it’s a compliment.)
  • The War on Terror.
  • Pretty much every president since Hoover.
  • The outcome of WWII (Really? Really.)

But the DC revealed the MSM literally planned a pass for poor Barack. After all, they reassured us, he couldn’t possibly have known everything Wright was saying—he was busy. The facts that Obama had been a member of Wright’s church for two decades and had even donated $20,000 to the cause were glossed over. Only a racist would continue to look under Obama’s Chicago stones (pay no attention to Bill Ayers, there).

Flash forward to 2010. Obama is firmly ensconced in the people’s digs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And to quote the erstwhile pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ: “…the chickens have come home to roost…”

And how.

DC’s investigation unearthed scores of documents revealing a concerted effort on the part of the MSM to drive a stake into the heart of Wright-gate in specific and criticism of Obama in general. Journalists at outlets major and minor are named in the DC’s trove of notes, offering shocking invective—including suggestions on how to falsely smear conservatives with the “racist” label in an effort to “change the subject,” tips on how to kill any negative stories on Obama, plans to convince a potential Obama administration to pull Fox News‘ FCC license (they can’t), and my personal favorite—NPR contributor Sara Spitz (your tax dollars at work, kiddies!) describing her laughter at the hoped-for death of Rush Limbaugh in lurid detail.

Imagine the outrage should Fred Barnes (the subject of one of the “let’s call him a racist even though he isn’t” plans) attend Sunday services at the 1st Church of the White Devil Slave Master. Even if he was simply there to observe, his career would be cooked like the slowest turkey on Thanksgiving.

If Limbaugh were to suggest the eye-popping expiration of the uber-shrill Julianne Malveaux, the left would howl with indignation—the gals at Malveaux’s Bennett College for Women might even suspend afternoon interpretive dance and pottery classes!

To satisfy my own curiosity I took a peek at a couple of MSM offerings while researching this piece. Surely, with The Washington Post’s ombudsman Andrew Alexander publicly admitting his paper had fumbled the snap on the New Black Panther Party story, the revelation by DC of an actual liberal media conspiracy would result in at least marginal introspection from the MSM amidst indignant shrieks over Breitbart’s actions—or so I thought. Instead:

  • CNN: Their top story was a thought-provoking analysis of Mel Gibson. At least, I assume it was thought-provoking. They also featured some story about Lindsay Lohan, which puts them in the lofty company of The National Enquirer.
  • The New York Times: Hillary Clinton announced new sanctions against North Korea. That actually marks a departure from the policies of her husband, who gave billions to the wobbly leg of the Axis of Evil.
  • The Washington Independent: WI’s Spencer Ackermann was among the most vocal of the DC-identified conspirators. I expected at least a mild disavowal. Nope. They’re upset about nuclear power plants. I was excited for a moment, until I realized they’re against them. Foreign oil interests indeed.
  • The Huffington Post: Their lead story is about Republicans smoking cigars or some other feigned outrage. The response to DC story merely claims that DC employees were also on the “Journo-list.” So, they’re admitting they showed a copy of their plan to the bad guys. Brilliant.
  • MSNBC: Ask their “viewer.” I’m sure he/she would relish the attention.

All of the aforementioned covered the Breitbart/Sherrod tale with the kind of breathlessness that fogs the windows of teenagers’ cars.

What we’re really seeing is the confirmation of something most of us already knew: the so-called MSM will lie down in traffic (or at least hurl what’s left of their ethics into the road) for Obama. While you’re scratching your heads in bewilderment as libs lose their cookies over Breitbart’s “cooking” of the Sherrod tape—all the while managing to ignore far-left hack Keith Olbermann’s cut-n-splice assault on Limbaugh from last week, I have a question for the class: Why?

The same media flacks who participated directly or indirectly with the now in-their-own-words-established pro-Obama charade told us back in 2008 that electing Obama was akin to welcoming the Savior. There was going to be Hope and Change. They even told us that we were racist if we dared ask what Hope and Change might mean.

Obama was brighter, cooler, more astute and even better-looking than the rest of us. His victory in November was going to end war (oops), restore the economy (oops), bring transparency to government (oops), and reach out to the opposition to bring us all together under the Big Tent of Democracy (oops). He fired the CEO of GM and none of us even got a cool new Camaro like the one in Transformers: The Movie.

So why does Obama need the help? This is a guy who won a Nobel Peace Prize on spec. He was a community organizer. He’s BLACK (-ish..cablinasian, maybe?) That last fact alone was supposed to usher in at least what the MSM called a “post-racial presidency.”

Instead, the hate-spewing left merely slapped the paintbrush of accused bigotry on anyone who opposed the Obama agenda. We now know they even discussed it in advance.

But this isn’t just about the revelation of a concerted effort to protect Obama from reasonable scrutiny with defamatory finger-pointing. My July 22 column: A Light in the Darkness examined part of this controversy. But the fallout from the “Journo-list” exchanges is something new: incontrovertible evidence, in the words of the offenders themselves, that you simply cannot trust the MSM any further than you can pick them up and throw them (with the exception of George Stephanopolous, whom I’m fairly certain I could heave a good distance).

There’s a part of me that hopes these guys are all just morons. Charlie Gibson said he didn’t know about ACORN, he was on vacation. Bob Schieffer said the same thing about the NBPP scandal. Stephanopolous thinks Obama isn’t getting enough credit for dealing with terrorism.

Last week the NAACP, fresh from demonstrations on behalf of cop-killer Troy Davis, issued a statement calling the Tea Party racist. The statement went unaccompanied by equally strong condemnations of the New Black Panther Party, John Lewis (“they shouted epithets and spat! I swear!”) or people who murder police officers.

The NAACP’s lack of condemnation of the utterly condemnable was itself unaccompanied by comment by the MSM. They were too busy describing Michelle Obama’s fetching ensemble while she intimated that childhood obesity might be caused by (shocker) racism.

I have no trouble condemning Breitbart’s allegedly dastardly acts. You get caught acting the rat, you have to take the cheese. But Breitbart is one rodent. The Main Stream Media is infested, and no one seems to be calling for the exterminator.

    So, let me get this straight. On July 19, 2010, Andrew Breitbart posted a video of Sherrod making allegedly racial comments to the NAACP Freedom Fund. That same day Shirley resigned under a firestorm of demands from Administration officials. Yet according to the full video of the event, she had done nothing wrong. Shirley didn’t explain her actual statement when confronted? Is this how the Obama administration operates – Guilty until proven innocent? And since when have the Obama administration dealt with anybody on their side that harshly?
    Andrew Breitbart says he received the video as he showed it. He was not aware of the full-length version. For sure, Andrew should have vetted the video more thoroughly before he aired it. But then, how often do the Liberals on this board think before they attack? He’s human.
    Am I the only person that thinks this affair smells like a red-herring? Or even worse, a set-up from the beginning?

    • JeffH

      DaveH, at this point in time, that is how this world turns…stay in shape ’cause this has been an uphill battle from the gitgo and we’re a long way from the top. You are absolutly correct, guilty until proven innocent, but that really isn’t a surprise at all with this bunch.

    • chucky

      They reacted so quickly because she and her husband recieved $50,000 each for a class action law suit that had a 1 billion dollar settlement. everyone in suit recieved $50,000 each. But the kicker was the additional $150,000 each that Shirley Sherrod and her husband recieved additional for “pain and suffering”(nice to have the inside track only ones who got additional $300,000) all while working for the U.S.D.A. who was the defendant in the case. that was Pigford I All you had to do to qualify to recieve $50,000 was to be black, and claim that you attempted to farm land unsucessfully. They had a date to close any new claims. The 1997 Pigford v. Glickman case against the U.S. Agriculture Department was settled out of court 11 years ago. Under a federal judge’s terms dating to 1999, qualified farmers could receive $50,000 each to settle claims of racial bias.
      As a senator, Barack Obama sponsored “Pigford II,” a measure in the 2008 Farm Bill that reopened the case. In February of this year, his administration brokered a $1.25 billion settlement for Pigford II. But Congress missed two deadlines, one in March and the other in May.
      House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Feb. blasted Senate Republicans for holding up the process, saying that they have “rejected over and over again any legislation that has had the Pigford settlement in it. So please don’t cry any racial tears for Shirley Sherrod. Her and her husband cried all the way to the bank

      • Wanda Murline

        Thank you for that information…it would seem that this was not aired on Fox or any other news organization that I got to see. With the way things work in Obamaland, the NAACP probably was the one that sent the tape to Breitart. Obama will use people, no matter what to get his agenda. I believe that she helped the white farmer because he was going to lose his property and it would come back to bite her in the ass if he did because she did not help him. She has not overcome racism…you can see it all the way through the video…the entire video…and her husband is as racists as she is. Time will tell about her because I can bet you that there are white farmers out there that she did not help because of her racism. Don’t be surprised if they don’t start imerging from the past.

        • Texas Mark

          People should read the whole article of Breitbart’s posting. He writes that later, in a complete video, Shirley Sherrod’s humanity surfaced and she helped the farmer by referring him to a white attorney.

          Breitbart’s point of the whole thing was to show the NAACP audience’s reaction to Shirley’s comments of not helping the farmer because he was white. He received the video as he showed it and did not edit it himself.

          Of course all of this was left out by the Lame Stream Media. Could it be that in covering the story they edited out sections and took the pertinent parts out of context – just what they accused Breitbart of doing?

          I guess most people missed the point that he was turning the tables on the left and showing an example of what they do all of the time. However, he did state up front that the story had a different outcome, unlike what the left would do.

        • bloomfield hills michigan

          You are all correct and it is past time we started speaking up. The ONLY ones that have a right to complain about this country are the American Indians. They are silent. ALl this talk of hate is fracturing our country. If Wright, Jackson or whoever find it unfair here – LEAVE. Regardless, SHerrod DID IN FACT say something that NONE of us would be able to say … “… I took them to one of their own. A white Attorney.”. What does that mean, people? We are humans regardless of our color. “I took them to one of their own?????????”

          Think about that and Obama’s Beer summit; suing Arizona and not protecting US citizens who are being MURDERED in AZ by ILLEGALS; Dhimmitude and Obamacare – better read up on that word; where’s the college transcripts the long form – don’t you get it … this is a set up. http://www.dsausa.org. Read it the Socialists are working inside the DNC to destroy the US monetary system and create ONE WORLD ORDER. Wake up America. Research whatever CRAP someone tries to feed you before Obozo and this Administratio “shut down” the internet and really start spoon feeding you what they want you to know. Inf act, Obama and this Admin. have taken money and tax deductions away from education. The dumbing down of America. They are trying to rewrite history – better read that one too. We need to VOTE THEM ALL OUT. When did the USA have CZARS – who approved it at US tax payer $$$? Now, you need a license to “sell your home”? THe lite bulbs in the future will contain mercury, a hazmat team will have to change those bulbs. Don’t eat fish but use mercury lite bulbs- NICE. Anyone “catch the VIEW” when Nobama stated that we were “mongrels” ???? GIVE ME A BREAK. Gore – if cap/trade went through, he stood to make $800 Billion in an off-shore privately held company. WAKE UP AMERICA.

    • Larry C.

      Hello,
      DaveH I like your comments, and they make me think about another time when VETTING did not occur, and the consequences it made happen, and that of course is the election-(SELECTION)-Of one Barry O-”DUMMY” from the demo-”RAT” party.

    • Vic Bailey

      And what most Americans don’t know is the only difference between slave traders and the Democratic party / NAACP, is about 400 years. Now the same two outfits want ALL of us in chains Black and White alike. We had better wake up, the DemocRATS want your vote and the NAACP wants your money. Semper Fi.

      • Carol

        Sorry Charley–er–Vic. 400 years ago it was Scots who were sold as slaves to the “New World” by their own king. King James the 1st of England was formerly King James the 5th of Scotland. This was how my family came to America.

    • knowingright

      The truth about this whole election will be known shortly. Just wait on it and sort through it by knowing the truth.

    • hflashman

      Absolutely a setup. By Breitbart. Racism? Without question or doubt. Negligence. No question. Deliberate misleading? 100%. Culpability of FOX…probable.

      Those that try to deflect any criticism of this jerk or who try to minimize what he and FOX did? So much for their credibility.

      Unbelievable what is being said in defense of this guy and FOX. Unbelievable. From the faked ACORN videos, to apologizing to BP, to this…

      There’s a poison being spread. As truth is offered up, the Right wing media and robots are fighting and yelling throwing out lies and making excuses for being barbaric animals. As attempts are made to try and put forth solutions and help Americans…roadblocks are tossed in without regard to th damage. And no counter slutions offered other than ‘no”.

      One has to begi to ask…if the goal of a terrorist is to bring down this nation and cause it to move towards authoritarianism…how is that different from what the Right and the GOP are fighting for?

      • Craig

        Man are you clueless.

      • Abby

        Hey Flashman, are you one of the drones ordered by DNC to infiltrate conservative blogs? Glad to have you among us. Keep reading and maybe one day you will see the burning bush on the road to Damascus. Eventually the scales will fall from your eyes and you will see that you are on the losing side of this debate. I hope you and your ilk get it; otherwise, we’ve lost our country. God Bless!

        • DaveH

          Flashman already knows the truth. His focus is intently trained on the trough.

      • Mike Austin,TX

        Deaf as well as dumb… Oh yeah, blind too.

      • CJ

        Yours are the lies, hflashman. The timing of all this belies your deception. Breitbart was set up. The words Sherrod used were raciest from the start. She said “… and send him to see his own kind…”. No matter the outcome, she acted in a raciest way. Doesn’t matter if she corrected her error later or not. So, before you speak, might want to check your FACTS first. You seem to enjoy eating a lot of crow by your posts on here.

        • eddie47d

          Breitbart was not set up and he has done this before. Sherrod was telling a story about how people act and how they should act towards each other. Even under unfortunate circumstances. Your misinterpretation (or spin) makes you suspect with evil intentions and very misinformed. You are the one who should check the FACTS.

          • DaveH

            Sure, Eddie, like the “Facts” that you present in your comments. You are a Liberal Zealot whose mind is as Open as a Steel Trap.

        • DaveH

          Here is the entire Sherrod Video:
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9NcCa_KjXk

          She is dredging up grievances from 40 years ago. Listen to this whole video and tell me she isn’t racist. Is this the “Color Blind” society that Martin Luthor King advocated?

          • DaveH

            For those who don’t want to listen to the whole video, the segment in question starts at 17:00 minutes.

          • Kinetic1

            No, Dave. These are the words of a woman who has lived her life in the shadow of racism. This is a women who’s father was murdered by a white racist, a man who was never even tried because no white court or jury would indite him.

            Yes, when she said “… and send him to see his own kind…” I was taken aback. But when I listened again I could hear the change. When she took him to see a white lawyer, that is what she was thinking, but that thought was the beginning of her transformation. We have all had that moment where we hear our own thoughts and realize something about ourselves that we have never considered before.

            Another issue is the laughter of the audience, but again, listen to the story. Ms. Sherrod felt that the farmer was trying to show that he was better than her. Maybe he was, maybe not. Given her childhood she may be predisposed to feel that way. On the other hand, such an attitude is not uncommon among people brought up in the south at that time. Either way, the joke was that he felt superior, but she had the upper hand. I know I have had this same experience before, though race was not involved. It’s a situation used in television all the time. Just watch an old episode of Any Griffith or the Beverly Hillbillies. It’s only an issue here because we are all so focused on race.

          • DaveH

            You seem to miss the whole point of “racism”, Kinetic. If the whole town was white and rooted for the death of her father, that bears no weight on how she views or treats whites who had nothing to do with that episode. Blacks are not exempted from “racism”. We all suffer misfortune during our lifetimes. The real test of character is do we take those sufferings out on uninvolved others?
            I have known lots of whites and blacks, and the blacks I have known are far more racist than were the whites I have known.

          • Kinetic1

            I understand your view, however I feel you may lack the empathy to understand mine, so as they say, we will agree to disagree.

      • DaveH

        Flashman,
        You are a Liberal Zealot who will stick up for anything that goes on in the Obama Administration.
        You are so ignorant as to believe that the Obama administration isn’t intimately tied to the NAACP and wouldn’t have done a little research before forcing Sherrod to resign? In my opinion, this little episode was very sloppy on the part of the Democrats, but the MSM will turn a blind eye to the obvious, just as will the blindered Liberals, because their focus is on the trough and they don’t have the moral integrity to question it.
        We saw the same behavior when the Sexual Harasser-in-Chief Bill was sheltered by the MSM and his Blindered Liberal Followers.

        • WarriorH

          I think FLASHMAN is OBUMMER!

      • Angel

        It is amazing to me how blind and stupid some people are. Your Obama loving ilk are race baiting. While you try to put us in a corner defending ourselves from being racist, you are exacting time away from us telling you how stupid you are.

        If you cannot see that Obama wants to keep us all poor, so the big wigs and elite can have all the more money and fine homes, cigars, booze and food, while the rest of us suffer, you are either blind or stupid. I definitely pity you. Their Reich will come to an end…sooner or later (preferably sooner) They are under the mistaken impression through their Luciferian doctrine that they will live forever. Well, I have news for them. I guess they will just have to wait and see. They (nor you) would believe me anyway so I won’t waste my time.

        When people call me a racist, I can only laugh. They have no idea as to the people involved in my life. I cannot stand Obama simply for his agenda and the things he is trying to pull. Many of the American people feel the same. Intelligent people of all colors. This country was founded on hard work and ethics. When one fell on hard times, their neighbors pulled together to help. It didn’t take force, or orders, it only took love for mankind and respect. Which is something you all don’t have a clue to. If a man doesn’t work, he shouldn’t eat. If a man CANNOT work, then that falls on the mercy of neighbors and the church, which is another thing that Obama wants to destroy. When a person id FORCED…it ceases to be charity. Please get a clue.

        The poison being spread is being done by the liberal/progressives. The NAACP deliberately only sent a piece of that tape to Breitbart. He was set up. I didn’t hear anyone from Fox say anything about it until the full story came out.

        • Kinetic1

          Then you weren’t paying attention. Beck brought up her racism on his radio show, but supported her and condemned her firing on TV (I guess he heard the truth before air time.) O’Reilly stood by the firing as did Newt on Hannity. The next day, when the truth came out Beck patted himself on the back for defending her (guess he forgot about the radio) and O’Reilly apologized for jumping to conclusions.

      • Ron

        hflashman – get a clue. Fox news did not air the video of sherrod the racist until she was fired by democrats jumping to conclusions. And as for faked Acorn videos, are you serious? stay tuned in to Rachael madcow and Keith Old liar with the other 25 viewers to get the real news. And by the way Fox admitted they made a mistake not getting all the facts before airing the video and apoligized numerous times. Name one time the leftist media corrects themselves when caught in misinformation and spreading what they know are lies. I don’t expect to hear back.

        Not even possible. FOX never reported anything about Sherrod until after she had been fired. You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. If you heard it from Howard Dean, Chris Wallace put the lie to him right to his face. Dean tried to wriggle his way out of it but facts are facts. Flashman, I suggest you find a few and stick to them.

ALl this talk of hate is fracturing our country. If Wright, Jackson or whoever find it unfair here – LEAVE. Regardless, SHerrod DID IN FACT say something that NONE of us would be able to say … “… I took them to one of their own. A white Attorney.”. What does that mean, people? We are humans regardless of our color. “I took them to one of their own?????????”

        Think about that and Obama’s Beer summit; suing Arizona and not protecting US citizens who are being MURDERED in AZ by ILLEGALS; Dhimmitude and Obamacare – better read up on that word; where’s the college transcripts the long form – don’t you get it … this is a set up. http://www.dsausa.org. Read it the Socialists are working inside the DNC to destroy the US monetary system and create ONE WORLD ORDER. Wake up America. Research whatever CRAP someone tries to feed you before Obozo and this Administratio “shut down” the internet and really start spoon feeding you what they want you to know. Inf act, Obama and this Admin. have taken money and tax deductions away from education. The dumbing down of America. They are trying to rewrite history – better read that one too. We need to VOTE THEM ALL OUT. When did the USA have CZARS – who approved it at US tax payer $$$? Now, you need a license to “sell your home”? THe lite bulbs in the future will contain mercury, a hazmat team will have to change those bulbs. Don’t eat fish but use mercury lite bulbs- NICE. Anyone “catch the VIEW” when Nobama stated that we were “mongrels” ???? GIVE ME A BREAK. Gore – if cap/trade went through, he stood to make $800 Billion in an off-shore privately held company. WAKE UP AMERICA.

      Even if it wasn’t originally a set-up, the leftists know they will have to spin it so the fault will lay on the right. It was my understanding that Breitbart wanted to expose the racists within the NAACP by exposing their laughter when Sherrod was talking how she “did not give the full force of what she could do in her position to help this white farmer” – they were laughing because at that point, they didn’t know what she was alluding to (she used to be racist but now believes it is the “haves” and the “have-nots”).

      IMHO, Breitbart exposed a very dangerous sentiment of the NAACP and for that I am grateful – it’s just unfortunate (for us all) that soooo many have failed to see that point!

      • Vicki

        Well said LinDY.

        The point is not that Sherry was racist. It is that (most) of her audience IS racist.

          Since you didn’t bother to provide a link to the origional article I went and dug up what appears to be the origional.

          http://biggovernment.com/abreitbart/2010/07/19/video-proof-the-naacp-awards-racism2010/

          It is obvious from reading it that the problem is NAACP and that is what he reported. NAACP charged that a large teaparty group was hostile to a bunch of congressmen (I would not have been surprised with their approval rating hovering at 11% currently) and that they used a racial slur toward these congressmen.

          The writer (Breitbart) has offered $100,000 to anyone who can show proof of the incident.

          “First, my $100,000 video challenge for any evidence of racism was met with crickets. The CBC, looking for a fight, and taking to the airwaves to accuse the Tea Party of racism made a 180 degree turn and went into hiding when challenged on the truthfulness of the outrageous allegations. From camera hogs to ostriches in snap of a finger.”

          No takers. Hmmmmm…..

          (see story in link above for that text)

          Shirly S only became the story when the Whitehouse did even less research than the liberal media claims Breitbart did.

    • libertytrain

      DaveH – either a set-up or she knew she was guilty of just being a racist -

    • Kinetic1

      Why mention Breitbart, or suggest that he “evidently doctored a video tape”? Perhaps it’s a timid admission that the folks at Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller did the same with information from Journolist. Here’s one of the damning quote’s from the big J:

      ““This speech is gangbusters,” “Her tone is pitch perfect.” “Palin is golden.”

      Ooops! How did that string get in here? These were a bunch of commie libs planing to besmirch the right, not reporters sharing thoughts on the day! Let’s try this again.

      “Open question: Would it be a good use of this list to co-ordinate a message of the week along the lines of the GOP? Or is that too loathsome? It certainly sounds loathsome. But so does losing!”

      Oooh, this sounds bad. Should left leaning reporters create a talking points list like the one used by Rush, Hannity, Lavin etc? (And don’t even TRY to claim that the right doesn’t do this. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard them describe a given subject using a well rehearsed and unified phrase.)
      But WAIT! There’s more. Ezra Klein, the man behind Journolist responds,

      “Nope, no message coordination. I’m not even sure that would be legal. This is a discussion list, though, and I want it to retain that character,”

      You see, mentioning that this was meant as a place to talk about work, life, politics and more, sort of a on line bar, that would have made this piece seem mundane. Does everyone agree that reporters from Fox or, maybe the Daily Caller might have a drink and talk about the day? I’ll bet they say some nasty stuff on occasion, if only to blow off some steam. I know doctors, police, lawyers, all sorts of people that have a favorite hang out where they feel comfortable sharing stories and ideas. Imagine if we could go back through all those conversations and pick out some juicy bits, splice them together and show the world what bastards they are!

      NEWS FLASH! personalliberty.com is a haven for violent right wing loons and conspiracy nuts!

        We use sound bytes cause humans have short attention spans. The key is that when you look behind the sound byte from a liberal you find nothing or lies. When you look behind the sound byte from a conservative you find facts and values with the occasional truism.

        3 of my favorites from conservatives

        when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns
        Guns don’t kill people, People kill people
        When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

        The liberal offering

        Common sense gun control laws

        and still my favorite

        Yes we can.

        Goes along with hope and change :)

      • DaveH

        I posted the entire video for you to see, Kinetic. But, of course it’s much easier for a Liberal to do the knee-jerk response of blaming Conservatives.
        If the blacks want to better their lives (and I’m all for that) then they need to focus of how best to do that, rather than hiding behind the “blame whitey” excuse.
        There is always a solution to any group that feels they are kept from prosperity and that is to form their own companies and trade amongst themselves. That takes discipline and hard work, though. It’s much easier to blame others for your problems.

        • Kinetic1

          I’ve seen the video. In fact, I read Breitbart’s piece on the video, and I am aware of what your concerns are. I was surprised by the quick firing of Ms. Sherrod, but only slightly. The difference is in how we saw it. You saw the Obama administration reacting haphazardly to a potential attack from the right, while I saw a subordinate trying to shield the White House from a mistake he had made. There is little proof that the President was even aware of this video before Ms. Sherrod had resigned, only proof that some in his administration saw the potential for damage and wanted to act quickly to diffuse the situation and deny Fox News of an opportunity to beat the President over the head with this. Clearly they should have looked into the situation rather than responing out of fear, but human nature can be that way.

          So I could have spoken to that before, but the thrust of this article was the supposed “proof” that the MSM is nothing but left wing liars and conspirators. The truth is that JournoList was used by Liberals, Moderates and left leaning Libertarians as a place to discuss topics, shoot the breeze and sometimes vent frustration in a non public forum. The Daily Caller took advantage of this open atmosphere to mine through e-mails and search for damning comments, just as I did with the folks on this site. Needless to say, if I were to take the time the Caller did I could have found calls for violence, racist attacks and many other damning posts that could be used to paint the conservative members of this site as potentially dangerous right wing extremists. No, it wouldn’t be true, but that’s the point. A blog that would suggest that a few comments picked from among thousands provides proof that an entire group is working together to subvert the news is proof only that the blog is the guilty party.

          Dave, I wasn’t “blaming Conservatives” for the Sherrod situation. Neither was this a “knee jerk reaction” to your comments. I give a good deal of thought to what I have to say, often taking the time to research before I speak. I wish I could say the same for others on this site, both liberal and conservative. I will say one thing about your response though: your segregationist theory of “form their own companies and trade amongst themselves” could easily be taken to question your views on race. This is the kind of attitude that has Hispanics choosing to retain their language and culture while living here. Don’t you think the best way to improve your life in America is to work to be a part of America?

          As for Ms. Sherrod and Mr. Breitbart, it sounds like they are headed for court. Perhaps that exchange will reveal whether Mr. Breitbart truly received the video in it’s current form, or doctored the video himself. If, as he claims the video came edited, we will have to decide whether the sender edited it to discredit Mr. Breitbart or Ms. Sherrod, and by extension the President.

          • DaveH

            Leave it to a Liberal to twist my words to “racism”. I suspect that since you excuse the racist comments from blacks that you are indeed the racist.
            P.S. Just giving you some of the same mindless crap that you give me.

          • Kinetic1

            Twist your words? I didn’t change a thing, nor did I represent your statement out of context. You suggested that “they” should start their own business. Good idea, though this is a tough time to even keep a business going. Then you felt you should add the idea about trading “amongst themselves.” As I said, people on this site complain about minorities purposefully separating themselves from our society and here you are promoting the idea. It might be a good idea if they have a product that is race specific, but why else would you suggest limiting trade to “themselves”?

          • American

            Kinetic:”There is always a solution to any group that feels they are kept from prosperity and that is to form their own companies and trade amongst themselves.” Copied and pasted from the original post. I don’t see anything that points to suggesting racism. The words are “any group”…not blacks, not Jews, not whites, not Christians, not KKK members, not liberals, not conservatives, not dogs, not cats. I assume that to mean individuals who are like-minded which could, but could also not, involve race. Although I am a staunch conservative, I will admit that you seem to be somewhat intelligent even though your opinions are different than mine. And you seem to be making your point rationally. However, you have proven that there is a particular mind-set among liberals and that is that conservatives are racist by taking the above words out of context and twisting them into racism. It seems that we are damned if we do and damned if we don’t. If I were to say (which I often do) “you people” to my white friends they think nothing about it. But if I were to use the same phrase to a group of blacks or liberals it’s taken completely different. It has gotten to the point that we have to be careful of EVERYTHING we say because, even if it comes natural to us in everyday language, it will be taken as racism when that was not the intention. I think that is the point here.

      hell yes it was a setup. Obama and his Ivy League bruthuhs played the cast, the audience and the stage crew on this one. What’s even worse is that if “they” didn’t write this one up, and he jumped to the conclusion that he did without checking out all the facts first, then we have one stupid SOB in charge of running this country. His mama was wasn’t worth a damn as a mother because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. She too must’ve been a bow-legged, Camel-smoking, lying ho who would go to bed with the highest bidder, and then the next highest, and then the next. F them both.

      If everyone had the ability to get a higher point of view instead of just ground-level, they would see that political Republicans and Democrats are the same people. Left-wing / Right-wing, conservative / liberal… they are all the same people wearing a different t-shirt but tuned into the exact same radio station – WIIFM (What’s In It For Me). These aren’t leaders anymore, they are there for the money. Not the $400k salary, I’m talking about the real money behind the scenes that you don’t see. Ever wonder why the Fed Reserve Bank won’t open its books? Why else would someone wantto be president for $400k/yr. He made more than that before being president. Think about it.

    • Marc B

      You know, I was just thinking about all that being a setup from the get go. With all the blaming of Fox News and Glenn Beck (who didn’t even run the tape until the next day), that did seem pretty odd. Did they send the tape out in the hopes Beck would run it and then cry racism since Sherrod, in her own words, said that the day she was fired she was told to resign or she would be on Glenn Beck and then with Howard Dean saying it was Fox News and Glenn Beck’s fault. All very fishy.

    • Greg

      I agree with you. They acted too quickly without finding out the facts. I also think it was to hide a bigger problem.

    • John H

      To take Breitbart’s statements one step further, he had the video for some time, and repeatedly asked for the rest of the video from the NAACP. Further, his stated intent was to show the reaction of the audience. There has been zero focus on the reaction of the audience, and the MSM doesn’t bother to interview Breitbart.
      I, for one, don’t believe he doctored the video.

    • Coservative at Birth

      Andrew was aware of the entire tape. He aluded to that on his site and mentioned her redemption. He deliberately only showed the bad part to show how racist blacks are, and make a point of how hollow their charges of racism in the Tea Party are. Bravo!!! My wife recently picked me up at the airport an experienced reverse descrimination by a black uniformed traffic person. She was told to move our car and go park it. She responded that the car next to her was their when she arrived. Guess what? The driver of that car was black, and was allowed to stay. I would expect to see alot more acts of boldness by blacks in the near term.

      • American

        I need to crrect you on the “reverse racism” comment. Reverse racism would mean “non racism”. No matter what color the racist is, it’s still racism. Let’s call it what it really is. The black traffic cop is a racist.

    To people who see bs for what it is, it does not come as any shock that America is infested with slime who will say and do ANYTHING to realize their perverse goals. This includes ‘Democrats,’ liberals, progressives, socialists, communists, fascists and NWO schizoids.
    It has been so painfully obvious for many decades that the media comes pre-packaged with an agenda that protects “certain” politicians and ideas. You don’t have to be an Einstein to know that the game is rigged and that the Napoleonic Code is alive and well via the frickin’ media.
    Conservatives DO NOT trust media types. The fact that progressives and their allies resent that is tough mule muffins. People who couldn’t buy a smattering of character at WalMart deserve NO
    benefit of ANY doubt – EVER.
    A prez who looks up to someone like Jeremiah Wright or has any use for someone like Sara Spitz OR Saul Alinsky or comrades Lenin, Marx or Mao is a prez who has crapped in his own nest and has willingly painted himself as a unique and utterly un-American loser.

        TEN COMMANDMENTS ACCORDING TO OBAMA

        The Ten Commandments According to Obama
        By: Patriot Update
        © 2009 The Patriot Update. Feel free to circulate this article, but please link / give credit to The Patriot Update.
        After observing Obama on the campaign trail and during his first six months in office, we have concluded that our President lives and governs according to his own set of “Ten Commandments.” They’re certainly NOT the Ten Commandments you learned in Sunday School. In fact, many are the direct opposite! To prove that our conclusions are correct, you will find a link to source documentation for each commandment on the Patriot Update web site.

        I. Thou shalt have no God in America, except for me. For we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am the chosen One. (And like God, I do not have a birth certificate.) SOURCE
        II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore. SOURCE
        III. Thou shalt not utter my middle name in vain (or in public). Only I can say Barack Hussein Obama. SOURCE
        IV. Remember tax day, April 15th, to keep it holy. SOURCE
        V. Honour thy father and thy mother until they are too old and sick to care for. They will cost our public-funded health-care system too much money. SOURCE
        VI. Thou shalt not kill, unless you have an unwanted, unborn baby. For it would be an abomination to punish your daughter with a baby. SOURCE
        VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery if you are conservative or a Republican. Liberals and Democrats are hereby forgiven for all of their infidelity and immorality, but the careers of conservatives will be forever destroyed. SOURCE
        VIII. Thou shalt not steal, until you’ve been elected to public office. Only then is it acceptable to take money from hard-working, successful citizens and give it to those who do not work, illegal immigrants, or those who do not have the motivation to better their own lives. SOURCE
        IX. Thou shalt not discriminate against thy neighbor unless they are conservative, Caucasian, or Christian. SOURCE
        X. Thou shalt not covet because it is simply unnecessary. I will place such a heavy tax burden on those that have achieved the American Dream that, by the end of my term as President, nobody will have any wealth or material goods left for you to covet. SOURCE

        Silly of us to be pro-life protecting the lives of the most

        most free of the taint of human corruption. Yet you would

        “IV. Thou shalt call yourself pro-life, and put guns in the hands of school children”

        What better tool to help them defend themselves and their peers

        “V. Thou shalt give lip service to democracy while taking away civil liberties”

        Conservatives do not believe in the voting practices of wolves.

        “VI. Profit is the Lord Thy God, thou shalt not put the people’s interest above those of your corporate contributors”

        To Conservatives the customer (that would be people) is King
        and their interest is always most important to a (surviving)
        corporation.

        “VII. Thou shalt make sure fetuses have health coverage, but leave children and babies behind(If the shoe fits wear it!)”

        Liberals want unborn children dead.
        (If the shoe fits wear it!)

        “VIII Thou shalt bear false witness against your opponents and liberals, and demonize them”

      SC, don’t sugarcoat your thoughts, tell us what you really think! N
      PR’s “Sister Sara” surely didn’t confuse her thoughts when she removed her mask with her desire to see the pain filled death of Rush.

      Anyone that calls them a “professional journalist” in the MSM also known as the, “Lame Stream Media” (LSM) aka “The Drive-By Media” are fooling themselves on numerous accounts. First is that they are a professional anything, next being that they think they are actually a journalist, and lastly is that they still firmly believe they are in the “Mainstream Media”.

      I seem to recall Breitbart’s interview with Fox News after this Sherrod affair went viral and came to the conclusion that he thought he was doing the right thing by getting what he was given by his source out quickly to parry the NAACP resolution against the Tea Party while totally ignoring the NBPP voter intimidation (filmed incident). In hindsight, perhaps Brietbart should have been more emphatic that he placed the entire video of what he had been given by his source without altering it in any way when he broke the story. But the complete video was in the possession of the NAACP the entire time!

      Perhaps they were too busy defending their false broadside at the Tea Party as well as ignoring the NBPP incident to review their own video library to do a fact check on their own before officials in the federal government got involved.

      Ever since I had the time and means I only surveil what the LSM and some of the Liberal websites are saying while I actually get my information from genuine professional journalists and their news agencies at Fox, NEWSMAX, WSJ, and the like domestically. If I want to see what others think internationally I look to the BBC, Der Speigel and the Jerusalem Post.

    • chucky

      The explaination from Mr. breitbart is he released the video and He asks you to listen to the catcalls from the crowd(turn up your speaker when listening to speech) He was trying to point out the racist reaction from the audience. The lesson here that Mr. Breitbart was trying to get across is that racists come in all shapes,sizes,gender,and of course color. All organizations have INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE RACIST, BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE THE WHOLE ORGANIZATION RACIST. A good example would be 90% of blacks voted for Barak Obama. BUT IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT ALL OF THE 90% OF BLACKS WHO VOTED FOR BARAK OBAMA ARE RACIST. If you are buying into this crap(republican annd democrat) and it is persuading you to vote one way or another instead of looking at the facts, Then you are part of the problem we have with Congress(past 15 years) and the President(past 15 years) now. Joe Friday said it best “just the facts Ma’am”

      • Gray2Hairs

        Who provided the video to Britbart? Did he receive the entire video? The NAACP had the entire video and could have released it at any time. Since the video was “leaked” to Breitbart from the NAACP and the left jumped on FOX claiming they did all the damage and blamed Glenn Beck for doing something that never happened this whole thing stinks.
        I personally believe this whole event was a setup to trap FOX and Beck; but Beck didn’t buy the trap, but rather disarmed the trap by supporting Sherrod. The White House reaction was prior to FOX and Beck but they had already preped their spokespeople to blast at both. The White House expected FOX and Beck to be exposed.
        Breitbart may or may not have “doctored” the tape. The bigger issue is that the talking heads are still attacking FOX and Beck with the same pre-defined lies.

      • Deborah

        I agree. Americans are Americans. All are in the same boat. O’course, some of us see the boat sinking, while others hold out for “hope and Change”. They don’t realize we got the hope taken away and the change we got ain’t what we wanted.

      • bbstacker

        They’ll never get the intent…Think back on Cramer…he was doing standup, the crowd responded. Nobody went after the crowd. I watched the video slice, and it hit me very hard. It made me sad to think that, hearing only that slice of it, here, after all these years, as much as I work to treat everyone with the same blind courtesy and faith in them as Americans, it could all be for naught. But, reality is a butt-kicker. I grew up not far from this part of GA, and it is a reality check to go south from Atlanta, act the way I do now, courteous, smile with a “hello”, and see black Americans simply taken aback by a white guy who recognizes them as just another person on the street who deserves the courtesy we’d afford anyone else. Martin Luther King didn’t profess dividing us up, he professed “character”.

      • Deborah

        I agree, he said, “I have become so distrusting of this man” and “We need to unite agains this man in one party or we are done as the United States of America”

    • Christin

      I agree Anthony. I think Breitbart is smart and this smells of a set up to take him and Glenn Beck down. They are exposing rampant power corruption, real racism, and communism/marxism in the government.

      Actually, Glen has shown Sherrod making racist statements as late as 2008 & 2009.

    • LocalYokel

      More to come but when? With courts stifling any condemning truth to be revealed in the discovery process of a law suit threatened by Shirley, who can reveal her $11 million clod in the churn? After all it would only be cement boots for “her kind” and all who supported the second extension of the vote buying freebie that is the foundation of the whole mess. The daily arrogance displayed in congress should reveal to all the confidence they entrust to their cesspool operation. In any event the Clinton era damage control unit yet lives.

  • WiseGal

    I find it frustrating, frankly, that people entirely missed the point of Andrew’s airing of that video. His focus wasn’t even on Sherrod, it was on the laughter and approval of the audience when she described her discrimination that she contends she later repented of (although she continued to refer to white people as their “kind”). In other words, he was pointing out the enjoyment of the NAACP audience when she described the discrimination she had perpetrated. When she described the correction of her behavior, audience response was very subdued. This was the whole point of Andrew airing the video, not Ms. Sherrod. But the left immediately changed the focus and made it all about Ms. Sherrod, in order to take the light off the apparent racism of the NAACP. And the tactic appears to have worked. Now it’s all about Sherrod, never mind the racist attitudes of the NAACP.

    • Mark the Bear

      To your point, the video was received in April. It was released much later in response to NAACP stating the Tea Party is racist.

    • William

      WiseGal you can explain it all day and the IDIOTS will still not understand,

    • Vincent

      Sherrod and the NAACP are both racist and everyone that is giving Shirly Sherrod a pass should watch the entire video because she continued to make racist comments all the way to the end. She also made racist ignorant comments on the rest of the news agencies she was interviewed by, why did she skip her opportunity to be interviewed on Fox News the day after the public became aware of the racism of the audience in the tape. All of the Obama supporters that are accusing everyone else of racism are the real racists. They are doing it because the public is becoming aware of what this regime is doing to our country.

        When the unemployment rate gets to 4.4% and the markets at 13000 we cans sing the glories and praises to your savior Obama. The rates went up 5-600 points, wow just think how much higher they would have been without Obama, Pelosi, and Reid to hinder it. I guess not having a Dem congress worked out for Clinton. But we’re really talking about your blind adoration of Obama. I guess it’s just coincidence that the markets started to decline around the same time the Dems took control of congress.

      There is no more racists than black people. Trained that way by the Jesse Jackson, Reverend? Charton, Rangel, etc., etc., etc.). When, I came to this great country (USA), 42 years ago, more blacks hated me than the so called “rednecks”. They even hate haitians, any blacks from other countries. Haitians have changed a lot. They do not remember who helped them in Miami: the cubans. We need to take back America from this crowd of anti-americans: Use your vote. That is why I called myself “a proud american born in Cuba”. Down with Barack HUSSEIN Obama, his regime and his “Useful fools”. GOD BLESS THE USA!!!

      JFK gave the blacks and other people of color a chance to better themselves and supposedly end their prejudicial treatment by white folks. Look on TV programs, and at all the ads,that corporate America is catering to, not to mention the Czars,…how many are now people of color. Look at how Country music and Hollywood have been infiltrated/integrated, along with the drugs and rehab that go along with these cultures. We have more criminality and disfunction, not to mention the attitude “let’s get even with whitey”, by the latinos, the asians, and the blacks, than we ever did in 1963, when JFK gave them a chance. Certainly their are many examples of people who did improve, and elevate themselves and their families, but I feel they are in a MINORITY, pun intended. Power without character accompanied with deep seated prejudicial anger result in destructive, dysfunctional governing. Stokley Carmichael stated, “we will have more babies, and outnumber you”. What do you think the illegal immigration, ‘for votes’, is doing. If the Blacks are capable then no problem, if they are not, the country will go down the tubes.
      Speaking of minorities how do you think a radical homosexual such as Kagan feels about “the rule of law”? Decades of power in her hands.

  • Jim H.

    The NAACP accused the Tea Party movement of being racist. Brietbart Showed the portion of Sherrod saying she didn’t help the farmer as much as she could because he was white. The people in the NAACP audience were clapping and cheering. The point wasn’t to discredit Sherrod as much to show the racism in the NAACP.

    @ Wisegal and Jim H -
    I agree, this was more about the Audience response than anything else. Yet, MSM will not open the door to that discussion. It will be directed away from that blatantly transparent behavior.

    Let’s also remember – the audience were quite well indoctrinated with a version of reality that actually doesn’t exist.

    Example? The CFR is compartmentalized so much that at least 80% of those who are members have no clue whatsoever as to what those at the top are up to. They think it’s a philanthropic collection of incredibly charitble people. When, in reality, no election since their creation has been allowed to have a contestant who was NOT a Member of the CFR. On that score, the question becomes: Why Not? Why is it so important that only CFR-approved politicians get to run for POTUS?

    No, the NAACP Leaders run that organization just like the CFR, because they take their marching orders from the CFR and other such linked Orgs. They are about “controlling” their Membership; not actually allowing them to have a real say in what actions they take. And, what’s more, I’ve talked with several black people in this world that will have nothing to do with the NAACP because of this fact. Just like many retirees are walking away from AARP – same reasons.

    Listen to NPR discuss it on the morning news.
    Listen to Rush Limbaugh or Hannity discuss it.

    Almost all media outlets will not allow the discussion to be focused on the audience reaction which was puppeteered whether they care to admit it, or not.

        I’m 64, and told them years ago (they start approaching you as a “Senior” when you’re about 50), where to stick their membership card.

    • Angel

      You asked…Why is it so important that only CFR-approved politicians get to run for POTUS?

      Do you know or do you want the answer? Well here is the answer. They are controlled by the elite who in turn, are members of the Illuminati who in turn, want to control the world.

      My estimation is that, they lure people into their organizations such as the Masons and Skull and Bones, they get something on them that is really good to blackmail them with and that is how they are controlled. Something that would totally destroy them and their families. Further down there was a post by a black man that did not vote for Obama that said Obama was not a racist. I kind of believe that to be true. HOWEVER, he himself does allot of race BAITING TRY to get our eyes off all the crap he is doing for the Illuminati.

          Globalism defeats national sovereignty. Everybody becomes, or so the intent is, jammed into one mold and the elitists hope it will all work out. Europe allowed immigration to staff all their backroom help, and look where that firestorm is now raging. LBJ, Kennedy and Hart-Cellar staffed our backrooms, lawns and construction industry (and stole the heart and soul of this nation by shredding the world of work from underneath black and white Americans), and the inferno is raging. The fourteenth amendment was for giving black Americans their rightful place in America, but liberals convinced them that living on Uncle Sam’s Plantation was much better and then convinced them that immigrant labor would free black Americans from having to ever DO something that elevated them into wealth and power–except a few who continue to thrive on the ignorance of the masses (sharpton, et al) Racism is going to exist until we look at each other as simply AMERICANS. Until we stand side by side, lock elbows, and stare into the face of oppresssion from a government varmint intent on dividing us so that the maintain their worthless positions using OUR money, we will forever suffer this fate of hatred and bitterness and division. We are all Americans, but we continue to focus on pigment, and it will destroy this beautiful experiment of 235 years.

            “Prove anything you say, prove that this exists outside of your little conspiracy world.”

            “Have you ever met any of the people that you demonize?”

            Whom was she demonizing? She merely suggested you look into some interesting historical records and see what you might.

            “Have you ever been to any meetings?”

            What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Even if she had she could not
            talk about it.

            “Have you ever met anyone who has had an actual conversation with any of these people?”

            Not sure which “people” you are talking about since she mentioned several and several groups. I have met many people who have had actual conversations with real people from at least 1 of the groups she mentioned.

            The best protection for a good conspiracy is that no one believes it.

          • Normal Guy

            So Vicki

            The conspiracy requires a strong belief system. Not so much about reality just kind of stuff that is anti-reality. If there is an alternate reality which ones is the real rewality kind of thing? Interesting.

            So how about this:

            It’s not verifiable but I have heard from trustworthy sources that the tea party is in fact the first wave of an alien invasion (you know extraterrestrial guys not Mexican’s – although I hear that Bilderberg has created many alien, aliens with the help of the Rothschild’s they are working with the alien overlords – His name is Sam).

            The converted are cleverly disguised as mindless repeating ultra-conservatives so as to not draw suspicion to their plot for global domination (you know we are not crazy just ultra-conservative) – Pinky and the brain is in fact true!! The objective is to wipe the minds of the converted to the point where everyone will believe whatever is planted in their brains, no logic, no ability to reason just believe anything that fits into the accepted conspiracies (there are ten but I will leave that for another discussion) and rail against any ration position – basically a world that abandons any rational discourse, a dissent into the darkness of mindless simplistic solutions revolving around guns, God, and misinterpreting the constitution.

            They are ultimately planning to subjugate the entire planet and turn us into soylet green – Charlton Heston new all about it that’s why they stole his brain and killed him.

            There is a spacecraft that was buried in the gulf they put it there the day after god created the world – so it would have been a Monday, about six thousand years ago – Adam and Eve were on the other side of the planet in Africa at that point so they did not notice and god just let it slide as he was a bit pooped after creating heaven and earth – Anyhow those original Rothchild-Bilderbergers (they own McDonalds – thus Burgers, and have been feeding us the conversion prep drug for years) have been waiting for this moment. There ship is in fact dispensing the tea party conversion gel into the gulf, that is why the oil looks red, who’s ever heard of red oil I mean come on. Within a month they will have completed their nefarious mission and we will all be brainless automatons babbling about guns and freedom, socialists and one world order (incidentally they gave it a run in the fifties by tea party conversion juice (chlorinated water for the un-informed).

            You can note that McCarthy never showed anyone his birth certificate as he is from Tralfalmador (the aliens home planet)It is really all awful. Disprove it if you can.

          • ross

            I’ve spent some time in books on The Illuminati, Bilderbergs etc. and here’s what I’m left with, mostly:

            Those elites are SOMEWHAT delusional in their mindset of thinking they can manipulate and run things–I say SOMEWHAT because they HAVE managed to engineer the status of Too Big to Fail, including the incestuous complicity of the Federal Reserve.

            Granted, the subject banking corporations are public, all of us are owners of their common stock to a greater or lesser extent, etc. so conspiracy theories fall somewhat flat, given that fact.

            Federal Reserve Bank conspiracy theory also kinda runs outa gas, since the Federal Reserve Bank(s) are owned by their member banks (us, in other words, if we are stockholders in Chase, B of A, or any number of small banks). The Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank are two different entities, btw.

            Then there’s the question (John Kennedy posed it) of whether our Federal Reserve system, and creating money through debt issuance, is the right way to go. New discussion altogether.

    what breitbart was showing was before the lady said that what she was doing was wrong he noted that the people of the naacp in attendance were laughing about her saying she didn’t help the white couple like she could have. he was pointing out that there are racist elements in the naacp just like any large operation but that it doesn’t mean the entire group is racist like they had tried to say about the tea party. i wattched the video and he was right. people were laughing before she pointed out that she was wrong in her treatment of the white farmers.

        Yeah sure it was and Bush had Martians attack the Twin Towers and Pentagon.

        • TOCB

          Try broadening your sources. You may be surprised.

          • DaveH

            You admonish Craig for not broadening his sources, yet you, without question assume that the Liberal Version of the tapes was not doctored?

          • eddie47d

            Dave H. The Conservatives (Breitbart) had possession of the tapes .So how could the “liberals” have doctored it before airing.They didn’t even realize it existed before that. Your playing loose with ridiculous assumptions.

          • DaveH

            The only ridiculous assumptions here are being made by you, Eddie.
            Breitbart claims he received the video as shown from a source, and did not doctor it.
            The whole chain of events leads me to believe that the administration is playing games.

            I notice that only the conservative DaveH offered any link or cite to backup his statement. Not a surprise really. Good job Dave.

            Perhaps the others would like to offer proof of doctoring? Or at least evidence beyond bald assertion.

  • TOCB

    As a black man who did not vote for Presideent Obama, I find it disgusting how low Republicans will go to discredit him. As a private citizen, Barack Obama had every right to attend any church of his choosing, including one that taught black liberation theology. Agreed, he would have some splaining to do if he decided to run for public office. Having said that, anyone who believes Barack Obama is a racist or hates white people has an elevator that doesn’t go all the way to the top.

    Give it a rest people and let’s come together to get us out of a never-ending unwinnable nation building war in Afghanistan and get control of a financial system and trade policy that is making us a third world nation. Obama had issues just like every other politician and Republicans were not able to turn them against him in the presidential campaign. However, he is now President of the United States of America. Offer construciton criticism for sure. But give this president the same support and respect you gave to other presidents with whom you disagreed.

    • John Hasse

      Part of what “O” campaigned on was a promise of change. Ending war, fiscal responsibility, and government ‘transparency’. I have seen none of the above. When he was running for Senate, Allan Keyes (another ‘black’) commented that he was not a natural born citizen, and “O” replied. “I am not running for president, but for the Senate”. And he took an oath (more or less) to support the constitution. That is treason, and perjury. I think we should give him time… about 10 years.

      • Rebel

        I agree!

        • Angel

          I don’t agree. I think it should be allot longer than 10 years. Then either deport him or make him get his citizenship. Bar him from ever running for public office again. End the Fed, abolish this whole administration and start all over as well as getting out of the UN and baring anyone from becoming members of the CFR.

    • tg7357

      As a white person who saw Obama as the empty suit-of-clothes he truely is from Day 1, I’m going to point out to you that the republicans haven’t discredited Obama any more than he’s discredited himself. The problems with lies, half-truths and elaborations is that they are hard to keep straight, and all you have to do is compare pre-election speeches he made with all his glittery, flowery promises to what he’s saying today. You can’t promise people the sun and moon and really deliver on it if you are a mere mortal, or unless you’re a NASA contractor. Obama lied. Not that he’s unique as a politican by doing so, but he isn’t even coy about it anymore.

Not once after that, did he ever acknoledge that part of the cops arresting him were black and not once did he ever say his friend should have just shown his I.D.! Even when he invited them both to the “beer summit” he didn’t address the failures of his friend, only those of the police!!

    • Abby

      As a Black woman who did not vote for him, I find it amazing that ordinarily sensible blacks would go to any length to protect him. Forget party affiliation, how can any Christian support this man? Yet that is exactly what we have with holier-than-thou Christians, who with their annointed self would go to any length to rationalize any action of this president. IT IS NOTHING BUT TRIBALISM, the same tribalism that allows fellow blacks to watch while members of other tribe gets butchered in Rwanda. It is time for all of you to realize that this country that is built on the blood, sweat and tears of your ancestors is being destroyed by a so-called black man who cannot lay claim to the same struggle. The wait for reparation is over, it is never gonna happen. So it is time for our brothers and sisters to get off their behinds and do something concrete for themselves, their families and their country.

      Start by opening your eyes and voting this clowns out in November.

      • DaveH

        Thank you, Abby.

      • tg7357

        Abby; thanks for the perspective from a black person and a breath of fresh air. Your outlook gives me hope that one day soon the racial barriers in America can at least be talked about with a degree of civility, and not used as a tool on either side to promote an agenda.
        I’m with you!!!!

        thanks for a bit of sannity Abby. you remind me of a lot of my black friends,

      • George

        re:”The wait for reparation is over, it is never gonna happen.”

        Even Dr. Martin Luther King’s own niece said that reparation should be coming from Planned Parenthood, which was founded by Margaret Sanger, for they are the ones that were trying to control the black population. Once people figure out this Progressive agenda and see that the Progressive Democrats/Republicans are not really for them but are really their modern day slave masters, there will be an uproar so great that it will bring their agenda crashing to the ground. People need to learn the truth about progressivism. It is not our friend..

      • Angel

        Abby, all I can say is this…You tell it sister. I for one consulted God about Obama…after I did, every time I heard his voice or seen his face thereafter, I became so nauseated that I almost had to make a run for it. As a true Christian, if we would ALL but consult God on every issue, these kinds of “mistakes” would never happen. God DOES answer prayer if you seek His council. But just as any Father, we have to pay for the mistakes we make. I know it wasn’t OUR mistake, but, God is trying to tell us all to seek Him. There is more to this story than just Obama. BTW, I am a white woman.

      • Vincent

        You are my hero when will you be running for office. Just based on your comment I would probably vote for you.

      • American Citizen

        Actually, the blacks do have reparation if they take advantage of it. They can get an education and become rich or even reach the level of being president of this country. WE who are alive today do not owe the blacks anything except the same opportunities that we of all the races in this country have.

      Is Obama really president of the United States of America (it appears that he doesn’t even like the United States of America), or is he actually only president of the UNITED STATES corporation doing business in DC? Does the UNITED STATES corporation have any legal control over the sovereign people of the 50 sovereign states without the sovereign people’s knowledgeable consent?

    • bbstacker

      In 18 months this pariah sitting in the Oval Office has shown nothing but contempt for American Citizens. He espoused exactly that same during his campaign…disdain for anything that went against his agenda. No majority in America wanted anything to do with “national crapcare” being forced upon this country, the voices of Americans said that, shouted that even, loud and clear. What did we get? Lies. Lies in front of canned audiences that this was accepted by the majority of Americans. It isn’t free, it isn’t wanted, it isn’t going to fix a damn thing, and it sure as crap is not about better medicine. ..and I am way the heck off topic. In any case, you do make a wonderful point, until we figure out a way to unite as a country and realize we are fighting a common enemy (many actually, this day in age), we are doomed to splinter into all sorts of rag-tag bunches of bananas and will never save this great nation. But, let me ask you, do you believe that the Constitution only protects our God-given rights, and that those rights are the duty of the president to protect and defend?

    • Deborah

      I don’t know if O is a racist or not. I do know he and the progressives seem to use it as a smoke screen. I do see that it empowers the true racists, of all colors, and their agendas.

        That they even use racism means they are racist. Where they truly color-blind they could not conceive of a way to use skin color against their opponents.

    • Coservative at Birth

      Did you know that the great emancipator Abraham Lincoln, thought that blacks would never assimilate into our culture, and it would be better to repatriate them to Africa? Unfortunately I think that he have been right. As long as blacks choose ignorance over knowledge, they will continue to remain in a sad culture.

    • ross

      TOCB, you offer valid criticism; my main problem w/Obama (forget about Jeremiah Wright for the moment) is that he filled his cabinet and czarships with people who are flat delusional–Van Jones, for example (has that guy ever had a real job–I don’t think so–listen to him on You Tube). And there are many others.

      Can we go out on a limb and say that these people represent Obama’s views, at least maybe just a little bit, or is he just trying to be inclusive by drawing names out of a hat? That’s hard to believe.

      Ninety+ percent of Obama’s cabinet and “czars” have never worked in the private sector, and exhibit a lot of hostility toward it. How does that encourage me and you to “work with Obama”?

  • John Hasse

    It is amazing the lies we will resort to in order to obfuscate the clear truth–”That we get along better with people who are more like ourselves”. Mercy, what is wrong with that??? Doesn’t it strike anyone as curious (obnoxious) that there is not a ‘white’ ‘protestant’ on the supreme court? (of either sex) and how many ‘working people’ are there in Wash DC? We should eliminate the ‘lawyers’, and a few other sub classes, and we might have a chance at righteous change. When we can’t tell the truth without being condemned for ‘racism’, and when ‘blacks’ can be racist without fear of being ‘called out’ for it, we are in deep trouble…. But then, you knew that already.

    • Deborah

  • gunner5050

    I have heard that the remaining portion of the video that “supposedly” makes Sherrod sound like an angel does not have the same audio quality as the portion that was revealed by Breitbart. Has anyone checked to see why these two videos do not have the same audio quality? Personally, I don’t believe anything coming out of the WH or in the media period!

  • TiredInTX

    The Breitbart tape was not “DOCTORED” it was just not played in it’s entirety. I saw him on Hannity the day the s hit the fan. His intention was not to show that Ms. Sherrod was or was not a racist, but rather, the reaction from the Panthers who seemed quite delighted that she had not helped the cracker farmer! I assume cracker is still o.k. to use since it is derogatory only to whites. In my opinion she is a racist. The race baiters and Fox haters don’t seem to want to stick to the little things like facts in this case and can only sling words and not see the “whole picture”. It will be to their detriment. As everyone here probably knows the whole thing started with NAACP slinging racist remarks against the Tea Party. That was Breitbarts point. Glass houses, no stones! How can an organization called the “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People” not be innately racist. I’m sure there was a time when they were relevant. NO MORE! Let’s get on with the bloodbath or chill the h out and all act like human beings! Remember, there were a lot of “Crackers” marching beside the blacks during the civil rights movement. A fact conveniently forgotten now. Martin Luther is rolling over in his grave right now!

You guessed it ….a crisis is an opportunity to do things you otherwise could not do….and this is how the obama thugocracy has ruled since arriving on the scene. Obama was raised to hate America and is now acting on his teachings with willing radical liberals in congress. America is going to send a strong message in November that we do not intend to sit idly by while America is attacked from within.

  • http://none Alex

    Few things so clearly illustrate the tremendous racial divide in this wretched nation as the Republican/Tea Party response to Rep. Joe Wilson’s State of the Union tantrum.
    While Wilson’s break from generations of SOTU protocol was cheered by many Fright Wing pundits, the bulk of you at least gave tacit approval with your silence.
    Now myself, I like the way the Parliament in England will erupt in clamor when someone says something to rattle a particular group. Too bad this country’s representatives sit on their hands, tight-lipped, and allow all manner of nonsense to go unchallenged.

    Except when the President is Black.

    To prove my point: Remember when acting President George Bush was lying before Congress, lying about why he was hurling 5000+ young Amerikans to their deaths in Iraq, a country that had absolutely nothing to do with the 9-11 attacks? Remember his explaining the need for this needless war as being to protect us from further Al Qaeda violence, even though the war had been in the works LONG before anyone had ever heard of Mohammed Atta or Toby Keith?
    Well, if a Democratic Representative, particularly a Black rep, say Barbara Lee or Maxine Waters or, yes, even Charlie Rangel had shouted, “You lie!” you freaks would have lost your minds! Look into your tiny hearts and you will know that what I say is true.

    This wretched sham country has, as Attorney General Eric Holder pointed out, never had a proper conversation about race.

    Like I say, admit to your children, or to God, or at least to yourselves that what I say is true—you people would have labeled an outbusrt akin to Wilson’s as treason and that the “perpetrator” must be imprisoned, even if she/he were trying to protect Amerikan children from a bonehead war.

    Yep, you know this much is true.

    • tg7357

      Well, don’t expect a ‘discussion about race’ from the current regime. We aren’t allowed to talk about the fact that Barack Obama is half black. It wasn’t allowed to be discussed BEFORE the election, so why should it be allowed to be talked about now? Why bother? 56% of AMericans bought into the guilt angle of electing the ’1st black president’ to show they were politically correct. Why should Barky be crying about anything that has to do with race? He played his cards like a pro.

    • http://libertyphysics.wordpress.com/ John Rako

      Nope. Don’t know any of that is true at all. That’s because I don’t live in your bubble of misinformation. For instance, Afghanistan didn’t attack us either. But that doesn’t seem important because you are spouting the party line.

      It would take a book just to correct the errors in your post. But let’s just start with this hypothetical: You are the President of the US. Your country is attacked by fanatics, killing more people than at Pearl Harbor, probably supported by some state or other in the Middle East. You could be attacked again any time. You don’t know what plans might be hatching right now.

      Is it at all possible that you might want to neuter the biggest overt troublemaker in the area, even just to show resolve, someone who is a psycopath, a sociopath, who has violated umpteen UN resolutions and gassed his own people, machine gunning and burying with front-end-loaders whole villages?

      Nahh. That would be lying to America. Iraq was a peaceful nation, minding its own business, flying kites in the Summer sun. Saddam was no worse than your kooky old uncle, the one who pinchs the girls as they walk by. That he was already offering a bounty for any Palistinian family who’s son blew himself up to kill jews shouldn’t make us suspect he didn’t like us and might take the next shot. And we certainly shouldn’t use the fact he violated the peace treaty he signed after invading Kuwait as a reason to restart a war. No. It’s better we should nurture our hatred of Republicans by ignoring most of the facts and makeing up the rest.

      • eddie47d

        Is that your excuse for attacking any country that abuses it’s people. How about Burma, Zimbabwe,Sudan ,Somalia,Yemen.Pakistan,China?,Nigeria,Algeria,Congo? Every war starts out with excuses for the nation who is invading. We helped to create Saddam with all it’s weaponary,chemicals and their sadistic invasion of Iran.That’s only a small part of our involement in that region.

    • bill in mn

      Bush lied??/ This is the Dems before Bush took office.The democrats had no trouble telling the world that Iraq had WMD as follows:

      There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years. And that may happen sooner if he can obtain access to enriched uranium from foreign sources—something that is not that difficult in the current world. We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”—John Rockefeller, Oct 10, 2002…………..

      “Saddam’s existing biological and chemical weapons capabilities pose a very real threat to America, now. Saddam has used chemical weapons before, both against Iraq’s enemies and against his own people. He is working to develop delivery systems like missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles that could bring these deadly weapons against U.S. forces and U.S. facilities in the Middle East.”—John Rockefeller, Oct 10, 2002…………

      “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
      President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998………………

      “”Fateful decisions will be made in the days and weeks ahead. At issue is nothing less than Together we must also confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons, and the outlaw states, terrorists and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade, and much of his nation’s wealth, not on providing for the Iraqi people, but on developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them.”
      President Clinton, Jan. 27, 1998……………..

      the fundamental question of whether or not we can keep the most lethal weapons known to mankind out of the hands of an unreconstructed tyrant and aggressor who is in the same league as the most brutal dictators of this century.”
      Sen. Joe Biden (D, DE), Feb. 12, 1998………………

      “It is essential that a dictator like Saddam not be allowed to evade international strictures and wield frightening weapons of mass destruction. As long as UNSCOM is prevented from carrying out its mission, the effort to monitor Iraqi compliance with Resolution 687 becomes a dangerous shell game. Neither the United States nor the global community can afford to allow Saddam Hussein to continue on this path.”
      Sen. Tom Daschle (D, SD), Feb. 12, 1998……………

      “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
      Madeleine Albright, Feb. 18, 1998………………….

      “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
      Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb. 18, 1998…………….

      “We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
      Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998………….

      “As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I am keenly aware that the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons is an issue of grave importance to all nations. Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
      Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998…………….

      “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”
      Madeleine Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999………….

      “This December will mark three years since United Nations inspectors last visited Iraq. There is no doubt that since that time, Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to refine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
      Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL) and others, Dec, 5, 2001. …………..

      “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.”
      Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002……………..

      “We know that he has stored away secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
      Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002…………….

      “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
      Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002…………..

      “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
      Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002. …………….

      “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
      Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002. …………….

      “My position is very clear: The time has come for decisive action to eliminate the threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. I’m a co-sponsor of the bipartisan resolution that’s presently under consideration in the Senate. Saddam Hussein’s regime is a grave threat to America and our allies…”
      John Edwards (D, NC), Oct. 7, 2002 ……………….

      “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
      Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002…………….

      “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years …. We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
      Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002………………

      “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
      Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002…………………

      “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members…. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
      Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct. 10, 2002…………………

      “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.
      Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002…………….

      “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime …. He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction …. So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ….”
      Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

      • Bob Wire

        That was a great composite of statement ~ Thanks

        But your commentary is inaccurate and really sucks.

        >>” This administration , no matter what the issue, they will never do whats best for the troops , or whats best for the country, or the peoples will. THEY WILL MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON WHAT IS GOOD FOR THEIR PARTY.”<<

        The GOP has made ONLY ONE DECISION since 2009, to block any and all initiatives by this administration, even when they were GOP ideas!

        So you are incorrect, wrong, error, mistaken, misinformed,

        and Obama has supported the troop all the way ~ by voting against the present engagement to begin with, to boosting their numbers and supply's once committed and in charge while looking for a way to stand down and get them home safely.

        That can't be laid at his door! no matter how hard you try! You can say it all you wish ! you're just full of manure, history and current events proves you wrong. Obama even kept the Bush Administration's Sec of Defense in his cabinet, not wanting to chance loosing a single step during military engagement while American soldiers in harms way.

        You are just wrong!

    I sure hope I’m misreading this piece by Ben Crystal. Is he just NOW coming to the realization that the lame-stream media is in the bag for Obama? After assasinating the characters of McCain, Bush, Palin, Romney, Thompson and Ronald McDonald (those free toys in the kids meal are bribes to get them to eat the wrong kind of food, you know!) even a blind person can see that the American media is a tool of the socialist White House / Senate/ Congress Trifecta of Trash!! Anyone who reads history knows that the Nazis perfected the media for use as a vehicle of misrepresentation, misinformation, and flat out lies. Why does anyone think the current regime and its henchmen are any better or less smarter than Hitler and Goebels? It seems perfectly clear to me that they all read the same playbook.

    Don’t you people get it? When Bush was prez. the MSM did exactly the same thing. Softball questions of the man from Texas were 99% of what the MSM was about. Obama was installed to continue what Bush started. All the promises made were broken by Obama JUST LIKE the promises made by Bush.

    Right OR Left, it’s the American voter that’s being manipulated into an intellectual civil war. While we fight those who killed the Kennedys and who tried and failed to kill Regan, continue their agenda.

      • ross

        …Bush’s news conferences were an absolute gauntlet of hostile press.

        The same “journalists” worship Barry.

  • http://libertyphysics.wordpress.com/ John Rako

    Except that the “full version” of the Sherrod speech accuses Republicans or anyone opposing Obama as racist. Now there’s an improvement. The Left and the MSM have been playing the race card all my life and it’s worked. But 40 years ago a friend of mine who was accused of being racist for enforcing dorm quiet hours responded by saying, “You may get the administration to believe that. You may get the town to believe that. Hell, you may even believe that yourselves. But I think that you know, as I know, that I’m here because it’s past 10 o’clock.” His accusers backed down and never played that game again.

    But what galls me the most is when the race card is played when race is not an issue. What race is Mexican, Muslim (Moslem?), Hispanic, Arab or even Chinese? None (Asian is not a race. It’s a place that includes many nationalities and races). They are nationalities or ethnicities. But that doesn’t stop the Left from accusing people of racism who don’t agree with the agenda of terrorists or the Reconcista movement. Why? Because the Left has redefined the Marxist class struggle to be between races rather than between workers and owners (another phony dichotomy).

    The racists, meaning those people who think some races are superior to others, have found a comfortable home on the Left and in both the news and entertainment media and have been there for many, many years. That’s as obvious to most of us as the fact that the media has been filled with unashamed political bigots since before I was born.

    • DaveH

      Great comment, John. Stick around.

    • eddie47d

      Rako; I thought you started off making some good points then you went right into Glenn Beck’s playbook. “A comfortable home for racism on the left”. That pile of manure smells all the way to China. The left opened up schools for equality, opened up the entertainment business,sports,politics;right on down the line. While conservatives tucked their hand under their behinds and screamed they can’t do that.”you can’t put blacks on tv with whites”,”you can’t give blacks more playing time on the field than us whites”,”they can’t sit in the same classroom with whites or only in the back”. I’ve heard it all many times. I think you meant well Rako but you dropped the ball big time.

      • eddie47d

        Racism (or lack of it) abounds if enough people are persuaded to join one side or the other. Hitler was white and hated anyone who wasn’t or didn’t agree with him. That’s why he was willing to kill millions of whites to achieve his objective. Ironic that almost no blacks were killed by Hitler although he despised them.(yet would he have if his conquests went further?)Japan killed millions of fellow Asians. Rwandans killed 800,000 of their fellow blacks. Racism knows no color barrier;All racists are equal opportunity haters. All political parties have used (or abused) race to gain votes. In the 1920′s the Klan (22,000 “strong”) ran the biggest portion of the government in Colorado. They were the conservatives of that era and the liberals didn’t stand a chance.Which means that the Klan were accepted by the majority,including Democrats. Conservatives weren’t nearly as pious as you all want to believe. They had their share of scoundrels. IN all fairness Charlston Heston was a champion of the Civil Rights Movement and a strong conservative. On the other end Al Sharpton can be a race bait-er. So liberals and conservatives can come in all shapes and colors.

        • DaveH

          Don’t confuse Conservatives (who want to preserve the Individual Liberty that was established by the founding fathers) with Right-Wingers who want to control the choices of others. Neither the Left nor the Right believe in Individual Freedom. The Left thinks the Government is exempt from “Thou shalt not Steal” and the Right thinks the Government is exempt from “Thou shalt not Kill” (except in self-defense).

    So many of you wanted this so-called “CHANGE” and by God that is the only thing Obuma did keep, as far as his word goes! Instead of finding out what filed that “EMPTY” suit and proving who this stooge was and why he was and where he came from: you just figured we ought to give a (half) black man a chance! *&%$#@! he doesn’t warrant a chance based upon his (Half) blackness! You Negroes forgot what a man who professed to not judge a man based upon the color of his skin, but upon the content of his character! You put a (fornicating) man as a god and say you believe what he says and then you vote for an empty suit because of his (half) blackness! Sounds hypocrytical to me!! Lastly the other reason why I would NOT vote for even a half black man is because of what God has placed upon him, see Gen 9:23-27 KJV and KNOW! It’s not the color stupid it’s the curse!

    • Angel

      Actually, whites voted for him to be politically correct, some because they are lazy, the same with blacks and other races. The fact is, when he said redistribute the wealth, they thought…WOW, I won’t HAVE to work. This nation was founded on HARD work, ethics and morals…not laziness and getting something for nothing.

      • eddie47d

        Angel; you are half right. Now who are these lazy whites or other races that don’t want to work and do it DELIBERATELY and voted for Obama just for that free ride?

    I see nothing wrong with posting that video. Even a small piece. He would have been wise to put a disclaimer but so what if he did not. She is on video saying what she did. In contect? No but the reaction from the crowd she was playing to is just a damning. I don’t believe her that she has changed or did a CYA in her complete story. She played racist to a racist crowd and Breitbart brought that attention to all of us as he should have.

    • mickey

      Yes. I watched the first tape and thought, gosh, a woman that is a real leader in smoothing race relations. Then I watched the second tape. I was still ready to give her a pass for one of those obama moments he talked about with his white grandmother. Then I watched it again. this is 2010 and she still referred to “superior” and the audience “amened”. Now I know no US government official can give a speech like that unless approved by someone. Who, I don’t know but I suspect it was the WH. Then I find out how much money she laughed all the way to the bank with, and now Pelosi’s involvement. The tape was not doctored, maybe cut but who had control of the taping but the NAACP. while on the first go around I was ready to give her a pass, I now think it was a racial speech meant to pander to an audience that says “this is how I got my money from the USDA and how you can too”. $16 million and the farmers got $50k and she got $300,000? Nope, not quite the innocent I thought she was. I wonder how much she is holding out for during this little bit part she played.

      • eddie47d

        That speech was made 24 years ago. Reagan would have been President then. So you fell right into this right wing swill and even dragged Pelosi into it. How would you have dealt with blatant discrimination back in the “old days”? This would have been in the 50-60′s in this case. Would you be willing to loose your farm if another person was favored and paid well for doing the same work you did? If this other farmer deliberately put you under would you brush it off and accept you place in life? Would you work harder the next year knowing the results would be the same. Some of you like to say Enough is Enough with what is going on in this country. Well how long should have Shirley Sherrod waited before she said Enough is Enough? Not only that and maybe you didn’t know that her father was killed by a white farmer. It puts bitterness in a whole new perspective and it took many years for her to accept the evil that whites did to her family. The fact that she went out of way to give aid to a white farmer says volumes about her. How many here have overcome their racial bitterness?

  • Angel

    I watched the film of Ms. Sherrod, the one on the internet, from start to finish. All through her speech she would start to get wound up on what seemed to be “not liking whites”?? She would catch herself, start smoothing over the papers in front of her, pause and continue to speak in a more collected manner. There also appeared to be 2 cameras in the room, one was being used by a lady sitting at one of the tables in front of the podium and the other one was in the back of the room, held by someone standing. Watch the film carefully and see if you also see what I did. I think it would take a film expert to assess what actions would be possible during the paper smoothing breaks.

  • Lubo

    Self appointed King Obama and his Marxist regime have done a wonderful job of discrediting themselves, so I really don’t think they need any help. Every ounce of legislation passed by this regime is unconstitutional and will be challenged in the near future.

    In my opinion, he is a racist, he has to be, because that is the key element in the “Progressive” movement, so as to gain ABSOLUTE power over WE THE PEOPLE and the WORLD. This is how progressive marxism works….study your history… go back and study presidents FDR,WW and yes, Black Liberation Theology.

    Show me a Pastor that preaches HATE from the Pulpit and I will show you a man that DOES NOT KNOW GOD. You see, you must have an enemy and you must never let a crisis go to waste. How else can you “Control” the peoples? How else can you gain ABSOLUTE power? How else could 20% of our population control the remaining 80%?

    In fact, the past 100 years of the “Progressive Movement” has been wrapped around racism. Affirmative action, social security, medicare, pork barrel spending, entitlements,re-distribution of wealth, etc. etc. etc. All of which are nothing more than a DUMB PONZI scheme that has bankrupt our national treasury.(Check out Europe and see how well their “Socialist Eutopia” is working out! I guess spending somebody else’s hard earned money finally ran out!

    So when this liberal-socialist-progressive-marxist crowd states that capitalism has failed, again, you better go back and study your history. I hate to tell everyone this, but unless you are over a century old, you have not been operating in capitalist system. At best, you grew up in a “Socialized Democracy” as outlined in my aforementioned “Social Programs” which is a DIRECT RESULT of our current financial DISASTER!! I think our FOUNDERS warned us about this and that is the reason that we are a REPUBLIC!!! Bottom line, there is no such thing as a “Safety Net” or “Social Justice” or “Social Security” or any other type “Redistribution of wealth”, in a REPUBLIC!

    In closing, if you want to be a FREE peoples(Black, white, brown, red, yellow, etc.), then you cannot depend on others to make your way through life. If you want to act like a irresponsible child, then you will be treated that way and you WILL NOT HAVE ANY FREEDOMS of Choice!

    Question: If Barack Obama is not a racist then why does he and the liberal media refer to him as our first “Black President” or our first “African-American President”?? It seems to me that he is our first “Multi-Racial President” or first “Black-White” or first “White-Black” President. Is he not? Or is he ashamed of his VERY WHITE MOTHER? Or maybe he thinks the black gene is superior to the white gene? Or maybe the word “African-American” is superior to us just plain ole “Americans”…..Which is it? You can’t have it both ways!

    Bottom line, if he were not a racist, then he would in fact be the MAN that could unite this country across all RACIAL lines which WE THE PEOPLE want and need….and that is to once again become just plain ole hard working “AMERICANS”….FREE to make choices, succeed or fail, grow and prosper.

    Having said all that, I guess my elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top.

    • s c

      Lubo, thanks for that breath of fresh air. If only there was an easy way to get progressives to look into a mirror, and understand what they see. I’m afraid most of them have been smoking #^&* for too many years. They’ve guzzled way too much of that lsd-laced Masochist Ade, and their brains have all but dissolved.
      Keep at it, and NEVER give them a moment’s peace. RIGHT ON!

      From his own book “Dreams of my Father”:
      “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
      This doesn’t sound like a racist to the Liberals out there?
      And then there’s this:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LucTPdK8VTc
      Notice that he refers to his “Friend” as “the guy”. Would you do that?

    • William

      Lubo would you be proud of your mother if she slept with a blac man?

      • Lubo

        William….. Well, first of all, my Mother is dead and in Heaven where you are not judged by the color of your skin but by the light of your spirit.

        If she had selected a black man for her husband, then I guess I would be a different color than I am now but my spirit would be the same because she raised me to be honest, trustworthy, hard working and kind to my fellow man.

        The only assumption in the aforestated would be if my suggested alternative BLACK father would be equally as good a man as my white father was….he is in Heaven as well. If this proposed “Black” father was a good man then I guess the results would be the same. How could it not be? In other words, the teachings of a good father and a good mother have nothing to do with race but everything to do with morals and values. Do you agree?

        That was a great question!

        Thanks and have a great day!

Or maybe he thinks the black gene is superior to the white gene? Or maybe the word “African-American” is superior to us just plain ole “Americans”…..Which is it? You can’t have it both ways!”<<

      okay? First allow me to ask, who are you talking about? Barack or the Media? and who are you labeling racist?

      Both? ~ so We are holding the media responsible for Obama and Omama responsible for the media?

      exactly how does that work? I don't think that it does. I'm thinking you are reaching well outside the realm of possibility and hoping it might somehow float.

      As for being called the first black president by media , ~ while it maybe a superfluous statement it's also a fact.

      I can remember when J F Kennedy was referred to as the first Catholic President while being less superfluous for he could have been a Protestant Irishman. No less, people and the media thought it worthy of mention. ~ I remember people having great reservation about a Catholic President.

      Some you have made no point that I'm aware of, much less a statement.

      You ask, what he is thinking? ~ white, black, superior, ?/&**)-+!!
      I'm sure while growing up a black/white mix ~ the pressures placed on him by piers and society ~ he did pondered all those things, you seem determined to bring forward Who would not? ~Myself, I always wondered why a turd was tapered on each end ~ and then I realized it was to keep you anus from slamming shut.

      But he grew up ! became a man, accepted all these things and the world as he found it and wrote a book about his journey. The book is a reflection of a child's life and the struggle to find a place in the world where he fit, grew to manhood and made his mark.

      Just as you and I need too and should.

      • ross

        …thoughtful post, Bobwire…

        Being Irish myself, I can imagine that Kennedy COULD have been referred to as the first Heavy Drinker President.

        I don’t know if John drank much at all, but even the Irish assume you drink a lot if you’re Irish. Even my Irish mother (from Dublin) assumes I drink too much, without really knowing.

  • bill in mn

    President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.

    He is slowly – piece by painful piece – erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there – yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela’s leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above – one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It’s time for him to go.

    He has abused his office and violated his oath to uphold the Constitution. His health care overhaul was rammed through Congress. It was – and remains – opposed by a majority of the people. It could only be passed through bribery and political intimidation. The Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, the $5 billion Medicaid set-aside for Florida Sen. Bill Nelson – taxpayer money was used as a virtual slush fund to buy swing votes. Moreover, the law is blatantly unconstitutional: The federal government does not have the right to coerce every citizen to purchase a good or service. This is not in the Constitution, and it represents an unprecedented expansion of power.

  • bill in mn

    Yet Obamacare’s most pernicious aspect is its federal funding of abortion. Pro-lifers are now compelled to have their tax dollars used to subsidize insurance plans that allow for the murder of unborn children. This is more than state-sanctioned infanticide. It violates the conscience rights of religious citizens. Traditionalists – evangelicals, Catholics, Baptists, Muslims, Orthodox Jews – have been made complicit in an abomination that goes against their deepest religious values. As the law is implemented (as in Pennsylvania) the consequences of the abortion provisions will become increasingly apparent. The result will be a cultural civil war. Pro-lifers will become deeply alienated from society; among many, a secession of the heart is taking place.

    Mr. Obama is waging a frontal assault on property rights. The BP oil spill is a case in point. BP clearly is responsible for the spill and its massive economic and environmental damage to the Gulf. There is a legal process for claims to be adjudicated, but Mr. Obama has behaved more like Mr. Chavez or Russia’s Vladimir Putin: He has bullied BP into setting up a $20 billion compensation fund administered by an Obama appointee. In other words, the assets of a private company are to be raided to serve a political agenda. Billions will be dispensed arbitrarily in compensation to oil-spill victims – much of it to Democratic constituents. This is cronyism and creeping authoritarianism.

    Mr. Obama’s multicultural socialism seeks to eradicate traditional America. He has created a command-and-control health care system. He has essentially nationalized the big banks, the financial sector, the automakers and the student loan industry. He next wants to pass “cap-and-trade,” which would bring industry and manufacturing under the heel of big government. The state is intervening in every aspect of American life – beyond its constitutionally delegated bounds. Under Mr. Obama, the Constitution has become a meaningless scrap of paper.

    To provide the shock troops for his socialist takeover, Mr. Obama calls for “comprehensive immigration reform” – granting amnesty to 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens. This would forge a permanent Democratic electoral majority. It would sound the death knell for our national sovereignty. Amnesty rewards lawlessness and criminal behavior; it signifies the surrender of our porous southern border to a massive illegal invasion. It means the death of American nationhood. We will no longer be a country, but the colony of a global socialist empire.

  • bill in mn

    Rather than defending our homeland, Mr. Obama’s Justice Department has sued Arizona for its immigration law. He is siding with criminals against his fellow Americans. His actions desecrate his constitutional oath to protect U.S. citizens from enemies foreign and domestic. He is thus encouraging more illegal immigration as Washington refuses to protect our borders. Mr. Obama’s decision on this case is treasonous.

    As president, he is supposed to respect the rule of law. Instead, his administration has dropped charges of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panther Party. This was done even though their menacing behavior was caught on tape: men in military garb brandishing clubs and threatening whites at a polling site. A Justice Department lawyer intimately involved in the case, J. Christian Adams, resigned in protest. Mr. Adams says that under Mr. Obama, there is a new policy: Cases involving black defendants and white victims – no matter how much they cry for justice – are not to be prosecuted. This is more than institutionalized racism. It is an abrogation of civil rights laws. The Justice Department’s behavior is illegal. It poses a direct threat to the integrity of our democracy and the sanctity of our electoral process.

    Corruption in the administration is rampant. Washington no longer has a government; rather, it has a gangster regime. The Chicago way has become the Washington way. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a political hit man. He is an amoral, ruthless operator. It was Mr. Emanuel who reached out to Rep. Joe Sestak, Pennsylvania Democrat, offering a high-ranking job in the hopes of persuading Mr. Sestak to pull out of the primary against Sen. Arlen Specter. It was Mr. Emanuel who offered another government position to Andrew Romanoff to do the same in the Colorado Democratic Senate primary. And it was Mr. Emanuel – as the trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has revealed – who acted as the go-between to try to have Valerie Jarrett parachuted into Mr. Obama’s former Senate seat. The only question was: What did Mr. Blagojevich want in exchange?

    This is not simply sleazy Chicago machine politics. It is the systematic breaking of the law – bribery, attempt to interfere (and manipulate) elections using taxpayer-funded jobs, influence peddling and abuse of power.

    The common misperception on the right is that Mr. Obama is another Jimmy Carter: an incompetent liberal whose presidency is being reduced to rubble under the onslaught of repeated failures. The very opposite, however, is true. He is the most consequential president in our lifetime, transforming America into something our Founding Fathers would find not only unrecognizable, but repugnant. Like all radical revolutionaries, he is consumed by the pursuit of power – attaining it, wielding it and maximizing it. Mr. Obama’s fledgling thug state must be stopped.

    If Republicans win back Congress in November, they should – and likely will – launch formal investigations into this criminal, scandal-ridden administration. Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has promised as much. Mr. Obama has betrayed the American people. Impeachment is the only answer. This usurper must fall.

  • Lubo

    S C, thanks for your comments. Trust me, I will never stop pressing forward on the issue of racism. In my opinion, racism is the worst type of “Hate” that exists in the world. I didn’t vote for Obama because he is a marxist-racist. The worst case I have witnessed in my life and that is a fact. He is just VERY clever at doing it.

    What we need is someone like President Regan to unit us and make us PROUD of our cuntry and our heritage again…..all of us…all peoples…not just a few progressive-elites.

      Unfortunately, there isn’t another Ronald Reagan on the near-American horizon, in any of the political parties. They all stink, they lack leadership and this constant in-fighting among themselves is getting both monotonous and aggrivating. I’m open to suggestion on fixing the broken political system of this country. Anyone have any ideas??

      • DaveH

        Vote Libertarian. I know we probably can’t win yet, but things can change suddenly in this country (look to recent election for proof of that). If enough people read our platform and understand why our policies would work (they worked before in the founding of our country), then we would at least achieve the numbers that would lead to an increasing amount of exposure and understanding of our Principles amongst the voters. I believe that we would win hands down, if every citizen in this country was exposed to our Principles. It is an uphill battle, because most of the Media ignores the Libertarian Party and for good reason. We champion Free Markets and the Media Moguls (with the exception of Rupert Murdoch) don’t want their cushy positions threatened by upstart competitors. For evidence of that, look to their (MSM) stance on the Internet. The MSM dislikes the Free exchange of ideas that occurs on the Internet.
        For Individual Freedom, Personal Responsibility, Free Markets, and Limited Government, vote Libertarian!

          There is one fatal flaw with that right now Dave, and its something we cant have. The democrats are going to stay loyal to their left wing liberal immoral democrats. If Republican voters like me switch over to Libertarian like Im wanting to, I know not enough of us will to make the Libertarian win, and it tears the Republican vote in half, and man, I love ya brother, but I cant have another 4 years of this liberal anti-American stuff going on around here. I dont think the country can take 4 more years of this without anarchy coming about. That is the scary part of this.

          • Jeep

            You are on target, my friend. But, we must truly be willing to support a viable candidate that pops up with the “right” credentials even if there isn’t an “R” following the name. And, we must hold those we do elect accountable for their actions once in office. For now that seems like a stop gap to the current juggernaught of corruption and usurpation.

          • DaveH

            The Libertarian Party has features that appeal to people in both parties, Beberoni.
            If we elect another Republican, we are just prolonging the pain. Right now we still have people that lived 60-80 years ago when there was much less government and can testify that things were no worse than now (I think better). If we keep electing Republicans, they will muddle along until there are no longer people who can remember how it was before Big Government.
            The Liberals got to the position they are now by slowly building their machinery and propagandizing our children. We can achieve that same level of power by patiently building the Libertarian Party and taking back control of our childrens’ education.
            We can not afford the luxury of dilly-dallying any longer.

        • Lubo

          DaveH,

          I am a registered Republican but I vote like a Libertarian. We must get the “Progressives Dems and GOP” out of power, and do the following:

          1.) Repeal every piece of legislation passed to date by the Progressives
          2.) Reduce the Federal workforce by 50% immediately…further reductions will follow.
          3.) Mandate that all federal workforce pay does not exceed the private sector for the same job. Currently the all-mighty federal workforce makes 54.8% more than a person doing the same job in the private sector.
          4.)Dismatle the Department of Education
          5.) Institute a “National Sales Tax” eliminating the IRS
          6.) Do away with affirmative action and any other racist federal program.
          7.)Privatize freddie and Fannie
          8.) Mandate that any stimulus or bail-outs is a misuse of public funds and is unconstitutional.
          9.) TERMS LIMITS
          10.)De-centralize power in Washington and return to the States and to the PEOPLE.

          I could go on for hours and the result would be a balanced budget in two years and a debt-free country in less than five years.

            Nothing ever trickles down it always trickles up.
            Milton Freidman economics ie trickle down is a scam on the working class to get them to vote against their own interests.And judging by this fascist site it works.
            As far as redistribute the wealth that is also nonsense Raygun raised taxes on the working class 8 straight years the wealth has already been redistributed up.The middle class is decimated ,unions are gone 7% ,corporations run the country.Bush and his crime family plundered the treasury time and tima again.That’s why were broke, corporate welfare

            pappy these people have drank the special interest Kool Aid.

            They rather place their trust in an Insurance man or Oil Barron then government.

            They are unreachable ! That you and I oppose them and their ideas ~ they will call us ugly names and claim we don’t work, hug trees, loves big government and “we” are the reason things suck today.

            That’s pretty much all they’ve got with some variations of course.

            You and I don’t want Big government ~ we want GOOD government.

            We worked hard for what we got ~ and it didn’t come easy to raise 3 children and 2 wives. Buy three houses and all the trapping of American life and when Downsizing came in 81, I was very unhappy camper as I didn’t work on Air Planes or Tanks or Ships or munitions ~ I work on commodes, pipes and air-conditioning. ~ I work for all Americans, everyone that eats and craps.

            It’s been a downhill run ever since. I’ve down sized about a far as one can go ~ at this point. The kids are gone, the women are gone and I take care of aging parents as I bought a place next door to be close.

            What I do and say today is not for me or my benefit ~ I’m dug in like a Louisiana tick and depend on no government, no woman or employer. I only depend on the sun coming up. When it fails to one day rise, even then I’m fixed and doing fine.

            However, I do have grave concerns for those who follow behind for at the rate we are losing buying power and control over our government it’s not going to be pretty. I don’t expect our tomorrows to be like our yesterdays but hold onto the hopes of a nation, of the people, for the people and by the people and the Liberty Bell still rings loud and clear for all to hear.

            Pappy, You need to get yourself educated and lay off the THC. After you get yourself educated, then try to put your hands to an honest days work and you may or may not get an honest days pay. If you are going to go through life DUMB then you better be TUFF.

            Only smart people understand their skill set and how to maximize it in a FREE society. After that, if you want to help your fellow man, then that is your business, not mine. We are a republic, thank GOD, and not you or KING OBAMA will ever change that fact, without a MAJOR fight. You nor your marxist friends WILL EVER tame the AMERICAN spirit. I would suggest if you don’t like that, LEAVE, go to EUROPE, I hear they have some great FREE stuff for you. If you are DUMB enough to believe that while your KING flys over you in his big fancy 747 jumbo jet and his $1,000 dinners. LOL!

            Bottom line, the days of the “Progressive Movement” in the good ole USA is coming to an end….and VERY SOON.

            It you want to go through the rest of your life believing that YOUR problems are created by the “Rich”, the I hate it for you Buddy. When was the last time a POOR man offered you a job? Pathetic!

            We are unreachable, Bob? That’s pretty funny in light of the fact that you say things like “They rather place their trust in an Insurance man or Oil Barron then government”. You see, they are all people, but the difference is the Government assumes the power to force us to do things the way they want. All the Insurance man or Oil Barron can do is persuade us. I think I’ll take free choice.

        tg7357, I agree, I do not see anyone that has the ability to communicate to we americans the truth, the hard truth and nothing but the truth. I think maybe Arizona will be the catalist in waking up the country. Until we can find some REAL leadership, not this “Touchy-Feely” progressive liberal crap, then I’m not so sure this country will survive.

        Bottom line, progressive socialism over the past century has broke our treasury and committed our children and grandchildren to ecnomic-slavery and unless we all make sacrifices and accept the truth, then we are about to lose our FREEDOMS completely.

        We look back on our Grandparents generation and refer to them as the “Great Generation” but I guess our Grandchildren will look back on us as “Generation-X”…..a bunch of lazy lying irresponsible dope smoking losers who slept through the destruction of the their constitution.

          Unfortunately, Lubo, Arizona is not leading the way to smaller government. To wit, the love-affair that Arizona Republicans have with the RINO John McCain.
          And Jan Brewers popularity with the immigration issue masks her underlying love of Big Government.

          • Jeep

            I have to wonder about that too, DaveH. But, as one who grew up in Az, I know that many seniors (and, brother there are a lot of ‘em in Az) supported Mc because they could identify with him. But, it seems he has lost some of his appeal as his economic policies are shown for what they are. Still, many in Az are taken in by his uncanny ability to “reinvent” himself at election time.

            Their 2nd largest employer is Walmart and Walmarts success is due largely in part to Mexican Nationals crossing the border to shop.

            All of this, while as the same time they are declaring war on Mexicans!

I do not and never will consder JoeH to be a loser and to call anyone a loser only reflects on your own shallowness and arrogance. Different strokes for different folks, this appplies to you too. All the wealth in the world does not necessarily make a person happy. I am not wealthy in a monetary way, does that make me a loser? No. I have a decent life and I am happy with my life. I am happy with my husband, my job, my family and my dogs. Am I rich? No. Does money buy happiness? No, it just enables a person to buy more of the material things in life. Am I bitter about not being wealthy? No.
            I will keep my middle class status and my life as opposed to some of the wealthy people. At least I haven’t been married 5-6 times. At least I am able to trust my husband, family, and friends because I KNOW they are not after my money. In fact, if I were extremely wealthy, I would no doubt be giving it to the honest poor, the environment and to the welfare of animals.

      I don’t think they are. That’s just your feeling coming out.

What they don’t realize is he always researchs before airing any video. Since Sherrod was on CNN saying that the govt had fired her on the morning of the 19th, it would have been reasonable to report it immediately. Fox did not report it on the 19th until 8p.m. on O’Reilly. Glenn did not report at all until the 20th and then he took her side.

  • Harold Olsen

    The reports I heard–mostly from Fox–was that the video that Breitbart released was ALL the video he had. According to Sean Hannity, Breitbart got set up by the person who sent him the video. It wasn’t until the sh** hit the fan that the entire video got released. Ann Coulter even suggest that Breitbart should out his source and I believe she suggested he sue him. I’m not sure what the truth is about this video and I’m not really sure I care. One thing this video did show is what a racist organization the NAACP is. They were laughing when Sherrod told about how she discriminated against white people. If they were truly against all racism as they claim, they would not have laughed about that. No, they are showing themselves to be just another racist hate group.

  • Peter

    This is the same scumbag media that now condemns Mr. Breitbart’s video stating he did it on purpose without vetting it. Is this the same media that blasted President George Bush when he was on an aircraft with the banner that read “Mission Accomplished” Did they do their job “F**K-NO” Is this the same scumbag media that has not done their job in vetting “NOBama” or whatever name he is using now. People should not throw stones if they live in glass houses. Until they do their job with the DUMMYCRATS OR SOCIALIST COMMUNIST do not blame Mr. Breitbart.

    … Hmmm?

    … Breitbart gets a “deserved” “black-eye award” for not verifying the tape before airing it to all the world.

    … the Obama administration gets a “deserved” “black-eye award” for not verifying the tape before demanding Sherrod’s resignation in front of all the world.

    … Sherrod gets a “personal-growth award” for being willing to stand in front of a large crowd and admit, for the record, to having behaved in a racist manner in her past but having done her job anyway and having grown as a human being because of it. I watched the YouTube long version from start to finish. I certainly didn’t agree with everything she said but I did agree more than disagree … I grew up in the segregated South as a “white” and am very familiar with the inequities mentioned by her. Her mention of the “indentured servants” of early America was a refreshing view into our history that is often overlooked and is not generally mentioned by those who would keep racism alive.

    With experience, self-awareness, real education and a little blind luck perhaps we may ALL grow beyond our immediate limitations.

    “Condoleeza Rice (he called her “Condoskeezer—not sure what that means, but I doubt it’s a compliment.)”

    You are correct in that it is not a complement. A skeezer is a woman who is easy to sleep with. Synonyms are “hoe”, “slut bucket bitch”, etc. It is only a complement from men who seek easy, illicit sex. When used as a verb, “skeet” is a vulgar slang term for the verb, ejaculate. The noun, “skeeter” is a vulgar slang term for semen.

    The “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright was falsely accusing Dr. Condoleeza Rice of being a condominium prostitute in a most vulgar manner. This only demonstrates even further how low the radical Left is willing to stoop to smear anyone they disagree with. I have also seen vicious racist depictions of Dr. Rice as “Bush’s minstrel Negro slave prostitute” by radical Leftist cartoonists. Shocking? Yes. Surprising? No.

    • Bob Wire

      Ms. Rice is a nice lady and bright enough to stay clear of political matters today. She kept 43′s chestnuts out of the fire as long as she could. ~ I’d say that was a pretty bid job for anyone.

      I don’t know that REV, Wright thinks about her and don’t care. Rev, Wright has consumed too much of his own product and is a sick man for his work. That happens to many men of God, ~ the devil is working on them double time.

      • TIME

        Now Bob, Lets look at this issue for a moment can we.

        Barry Soetoro went to Rev Wrights church for 20 plus years, and your now telling us that Barry was not involved with Rev Wright.
        Are you just being a joker dude?

        Hey I don’t go to church and I know when I hear someone say things like old Rev Wright that the deck of cards is not quite full.

        I am rather sure that I would have that all figured out in less than 5 minutes, I am also very sure it would not have taken me over 20 years, so if Barry Soetoro is as bright as everyone says what took so long? Is it that Bill and wife also went to the same church?

        Keep in mind I have never said I was a Rocket Science master. But I can read a teli Prompt rather well, and If I do say so I give a dam good speach even with out one.

        So whats missing from this picture dude?

        • Bob Wire

          Time ~ people grow sick ~ over time ( no pun intended)

          I’m not attempting to defend anybody or anything ~ and have no plans to try.

          Rev. Wright not unlike Nixon became ill ~ over a period of time and intense stress. Self -inflicted stress ! the human mind has a weakness for it! We love misery!

          This sickness doesn’t happen all at once. ~ And people are slow to see it or accept it ~ and slower still know how to react to it if they have held any respect for a person and it’s been developed over years of time.

          This is not a darn excuse ~ but in the real world, the way things like this happens. ~ Jim Jones another perfect example. I could go on and on.

          But your are so eager to find fault and attach blame anyway you can ~ i really don’t know why, I’m addressing your post?

          Guilt by association is something you are attempting to rationalize in your mind and trying to instill it in other’s.

          You must find someone predisposed to accept your connect the dots thinking process and share your hate.

          I went to church for many years and never like the pastor , didn’t like many things he offered. But ~ I didn’t go to church for his sake ~ People that go to church have many reasons to do so. Because their family does, because your matriarch or patriarch does, the old leaders of your family . Your friends ! Then there’s the good work you are engaged in. The people that are depending on you. The projects! A Church congregation are made up by people! It the people and love for these people that people go to church. These are the men and women that will be with you grave side or lay you in your grave.

          Have you considered any of this ~~ this stuff?

          I don’t think you have.

          • Claire

            Bob Wire– Guilt by association does have some merit. Haven’t you heard this– “A person is judged by the company they keep.” Does “keeping one’s nose clean” mean anything to you? And I don’t mean using a kleenex. If a person runs with criminals/creeps then that person is considered to be a part of that group. The average person tries to avoid people that have a tendency to be “off the wall” or involved in unsavory practices. I can tell you that I would never sit in a church with Rev. Wright as the preacher or any other preacher that says the things he does. I would avoid him like the plague.

  • Soldier

    Several points on Ms. Sherrod.

    One, if she was really/truthfully trying to tell her audience about her epiphany with respect to racism then she should have preceded her story with that information and then told the story. Instead she baited her audience with racist comments regarding her handling of the white farmers plight allowing them to take pleasure in how ruthlessly she treated him, and then in the end told them about the lesson she learned. This definitely does not pass the smell test and leaves room for anyone hearing her story to doubt her true conversion away from racism.

    Two, when confronted with a request for her resignation, she did nothing to explain the context of her story until the next day when she had her face plastered on every liberal newscast possible. You notice she did not go on FOX or any conservative responsible program to defend herself. This again does not pass the smell test. It certainly leaves room for the strong possibility that she saw an opportunity to run this fiasco into a lawsuit against anyone that might profit her and the potential for all kinds of notoriety leading to book deals, a new plush job, etc.

    I have had similar epiphanies in my lifetime in different areas of my life and each time I relate those stories to anyone, I tell them what I’m going to tell them and then tell the story. Even with the epiphanies I still struggle with those issues in my life and have to guard against stereotypes. It appears if Ms. Sherrod were being totally honest she might disclose that she still struggles against the bad things that were done to her in her lifetime that led to her racism in the first place, and that she also has to guard against falling back into that mindset that leads to racism. Like watergate and other ‘gates’ we will probably never know the whole and true story. Once it gets this distorted there is likely no unraveling it truthfully.

  • Warren K

    Your accusation thar Breitbart “doctored” the tape is seriously “over the top” and is factually incorrect. He aired what was sent to him and others edited that content. NO ONE DOCTORED anything. Thomas Sowell saw the original airing and says it contained more than what the final script said. He feels that Sherrod does not have a legal leg to stand on and he also has determined from her subsequent statements that she probably is, indeed, racist. I have a great deal of respect for his opinion, far more than others.

  • bobmac

    Ben,Breitbart didn’t “doctor” the tape.He received an excerpt of part of the tape that was out of context of the full tape.It’s tough to take you seriously if you screw the pooch in your first paragraph.

    • Bob Wire

      I was wondering about that myself !

      It weaken his paper and left me thinking, “Does he know something that I don’t know?”

      I’ve not been glued to the issue ~ there much I don’t know at this point and look forward to reading about in the past tense.

      But I think it’s importance is large.

      hey if this can be done and accepted ~ There no limits to future of political spin!

      That anyone that might be considered unsympathetic to anyone’s cause could be subject to similar attacks and rendered neutral at a delicate time, changes the very nature of politics discourse in a very big way.

      You might think Andrew Breitbart is wonderful! ~ But how would you like for this kind of hatch job done on key political figure that you admire, two days before a floor vote?

  • amparis

    Here’s the problem:
    Obama’s credo is, “divide and conquer”. He is dividing and polarizing the country between rich and poor, black & hispanics against white, etc. We are all playing his game now.
    Obama has a clear agenda in transforming the country and he is very, very smart. While we are trying to figure out how to find a solution to opose his agenda and outrageous behaviour, one problem pops after another. I have become so distrusting of this man, I even think, the explosion of the pipe in the golf, was NOT an accident. His behavior and the way he acted like it was no big deal, refusing help from other countries and then on top declaring a moratorium is something umbelievable. Imagine if Bush had done the same. Suing AZ for the anti-illegal immigration law is just another issue to keeps us all distracted….He is demoralizing the military with his new rules of engagement and on and on. There are big issues and small issues like ignoring the invitation to celebrate the 100 years of the Boy Scouts, instead going to The View.
    The problem is we are all confused and don’t know what to do. If we opose opose this man, we are for sure racists…I read some people think a Libertarian would be the solution, others want to impeach this man. This will put the Democrats in power for another 25 years. The Tea Party movement is the best thing that happened in the country, but is being attacked as a racist group, We need to unite agains this man in one party or we are done as the United States of America.
    I would thank Glenn Beck for educating his viewers and being a lonely warrior unmasking this man in the White House.

    • mickey

      Actually, I think we are coming together, maybe not the illegals, but the rest of us are. I’ve heard otherwise die-hard obama supporters taking a second thought on all of this. For every person calling out whites (although we aren’t all white) as racists they have to admit anything they say bad about Bush is racist–lol, to a degree. I think AZ is going to be profound. This is a threat to our nation as well as to all of us. Simmarily, I see other nations getting just a little worried about obama’s threat to them since he will take over their countries.

    • Bob Wire

      You describe the Masters of the GOP, not Obama.

      • TIME

        Now Bob who is this Obama?

        As I pointed out now countless times there is no legal name change from Barry Soetoro, thats not just my finding, thats also the head of the East Coast Democratic Partys finding as well.
        Oh and others who have also looked into this issue.

        Thus there is no leagl named person such as Barry Obama, his name is quite clearly Barry Soetoro.
        That is unless you have findings that differ, if so then please do post them as it should be quite interesting to see.

        Let alone the fact that this Obama person seems to have 16 Social Security numbers, now thats strange; but hey then again the guy who claims to be this person, and has all of these 16 SS #’s that all seem to trace back to Barry Soetoro’s address in both Ill, and DC, the last is one from a state he never lived in nor worked in that has even me puzzeled.
        So perhaps you can explain how this all works to us slower folks.

        Thanks Bob and you have a really nice day dude, :-)

      I wish you were right (Libertarian way) but I fear a winning coalition would be very difficult to forge, if for no other reason, I don’t believe there’s any such thing as a moderate Democrat anymore (55-60% say Socialism is a good thing). There’s nothing (or not enough) on the left side of the aisle that cherishes Constitutional liberties, in a society that promotes responsibilty, self-reliance, results oriented problem solving, and meritocracy. Hence, we’re doomed to an endless parade of Progressives with D’s (Biden, Hillary) and R’s (McCain, Graham) beside their names. Chairman ObaMao is still strong among Progs, nothing’s changed with Republicans, but he’s hemorrhaging Independants (75-80% of ObaMao voters in this demographic would not do so today). I don’t think he’ll be re-elected, but the next guy in line will return us to a “takin’ the country to h*ll on a Trailways bus instead of a chartered SST” policy platform.

      As to “The View” appearance… certainly beneath the office of POTUS, but whad’ya expect from an “American Idol” President? What’s MUCH more telling is the “dis” to the Boy Scouts. I’m sure you remember Boy Scouts being booed and peppered with trash (by the most tolerant and enlightened of all among us…. San Franciscans) back during the “gays should be Scout Leaders” flap. They’ve never gotten over it and this is the latest incarnation of that grudge. And they’ll be a GREAT organization once again when we “Fundamentally transform the Nation…. er I mean Boy Scouts” I can see it now!!

      The Lib Scout Law

      A Lib Scout is Shady
      A Lib Scout is Siditious
      A Lib Scout is Unaccomidating
      A Lib Scout is Hostile
      A Lib Scout is Impolite
      A Lib Scout is Cruel
      A Lib Scout is Recalcitrant
      A Lib Scout is Gloomy
      A Lib Scout is Wasteful
      A Lib Scout is Cowardly
      A Lib Scout is Salacious and
      A Lib Scout is Blasphemous

      Don’t get much more “Fundamentally Transformed” than that!!

            But the question remains; more people, more too do, yet less government? How does that work? My guess something is not doing to be done! I wonder what that might entail? CDC? FDA? CIA? FBI? SEC? USAF, HLS?, what’s to be cut? Have we told these people yet? That they be looking for work?

  • JiimCO

    So lets see, Brietbart releases a video that he received from someone else that purports one thing but actually shows something else, so it is not his fault. Dan Rather does the same thing a few years ago and you all applauded when his producer was fired and he retired. So I am guessing the lesson here is that right wing pundits are held to lower standards, it isn’t important if their story is right or wrong … just as long as it sounds like it could be true?

    • Alex

      • Bob Wire

        Time I think Jimco has offered a valid point in regard GOP “knee jerk” reaction.

        Dan Rather case was must more political and the feud going far back to Daddy Bush and both were gunning for each other for years. Rather was overcame in a squeeze play and sent packing in the end ~ GOP supporter celebrated the victory while most being clueless to what it was even about or the merits of the charge or how important it might have been, ~ The only thing that mattered was the GOP won!

        And the GOP conservative crowd is doing the same thing with this. It doesn’t really matter what it’s about or the merits ~ They just want to win!

        I don’t think you are going to have much luck with this case.

        It’s clear that Sherrod not be the most gifted speaker, was addressing “Race Issue”and drew from a lifetime of her experience. She offered how it use to be and how things had changed.

        That Breitbart would take the opportunity and use edited parts to make political hay was by his own hand and volition. His motives I look forward to hearing while I think they are clear to most of us.

        He’s the one that intended to capitalize on race while it’s true he didn’t throw the leading card.

        So that leave us in a place where race issues can’t be discussed.

        The truth being American have always have a difficult time discussing sex and race. They are not very good at it, not at all ~ there’s a little Archie Bunker in all of us. We don’t want to hear about.

    When the Neutored Coon Android Ape Party whines about the need for reperations, more money to waste on edularning for dis and dat, and more basketball hoops. so da nappy headed spawn, done get too fat. Same goes for the blanket butts on the rezs, need more prepared food and want to act like they cann’t survive without their hertitage is just peachy great, the same whining crap of every one needs more government free money and more commods, need more shacks to demolish and destroy. Raindancers are too damn dumb to run their casinos or manage their money and too laxy to the point, where they will not grow their own food even if they were starving, but act like they lived with nature. Yes, they did, half of the tribe died durning the winter of starvation, they killed off each other for the hell of it. That is why males had several wives, there wasn’t enough males, so they took what ever they could get, just like the muslims. Now with the illegal bean bellies running in to the USA like lice leaving a carcuss, who was the socialist eleit bastards that created this crap system. THE SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT NATIONALIST UNION PARTY! Democraps beleive in making everyone wards of the government, they put the Indians on thee reservations, blacks on welfare programs, let mexicans come in here and not have to abide by our laws, common thread, make them all think they are victums and don’t make them assemulate into society. It has been going on for so long even fat assed lazy white are beleiving the same bildge. The likes of OmoroWright ,Sherrod,Panthers, “minorities”, all muslims, just got caught acting with out a telepromotor, or have the holleywierd directors staging scences, and were just behaving like tribal morons, just like their muslim marxist idoit icion moron does. Brietbart is probably just another exceidern head ache for all marxist democrats and their communist worshippers. Keep on exposing the sorry marxist democrap party and their thugs.

      Waaaa waaa waaaa—what a whiny piece of crud you are—you must have been schooled in Texass or some other backwards inbred state.
      Grow up. Take the Faux News gaspipe out of your dirty mouth

      • http://?? Joe H.

        alex,
        Please don’t try to associate that kind of CRUD with us conservatives !!! I do not and never have felt that way about any racial group and never will!!! Fox News doesn’t pass on that either! For all I know he is a demoncrat in disguise!!!

      • Bob Wire

        please don’t do that ~ condescend by schooling and state.

        It’s not that it’s offensive ~ but it makes people just fighting mad and you’ve just shut the down to anything as you claim some position of superior.

        I’m from Texas ~ what formal education I received, I received in Texas. I’ll go head to head with you in a heartbeat and I’ll make you cry.

        While I dislike most TV programing ~ especially FOX ~ let’s say I monitor most all stations. ~ I despise 80% of all commercials and look for programing that takes into consideration of my time and interest, like public broadcasting in 15 min. block of commercials and 1 hours of viewing or “most dangerous jobs or most dirtiest jobs or science and history channels.

        I’m not a liberal but I am a Democrat and I work inside my party for the change I think is necessary. I work inside the present system that’s in place for change and not outside the system or want to destroy the system.

        I want to return the power of the ballot box to the people and not special interest.

        I don’t speak in terms of small or big ~ but good government.

        I don’t speak in term of conservative or liberal ~ but what’s fair, just, where everyone wins and not just a few.

        I refuse to be painted, to be placed in anyone’s labeled box for their personal understanding. ~ If they failed to understand, it not my responsibility to jump inside their box to make life easier for them.

        I’m Texas proud ~ I’m American proud and humbled by the job that lie ahead of us.

        Want you help? `Be a part of the solution?

        To do otherwise is not very constructive.

      • Claire

        Alex–There is no need to refer to Texas as a “backwards inbred state.” All states make up what America stands for. Someone needs to take a bar of soap to your mouth, especially since you are displaying childish behavior.

  • ETTU

    You conservatives appear to live in another planet, and by nature must be a bunch of hypocrits.
    Why don’t you leave your sheltered little worlds and try to get a life. Why do you still fight the idea that the USA should be an opened society not some closed society like so many in the middle east.. Most conservative remind me of the Taliban, I think some talk and act just like the Taliban.

    I met some people that had some extra unused property. The taxes were doable. Suddenly, reevaluated, gone up. Property taxes up so high that the vacant property with high taxes was unproductive and not worth sustaining. The owners decided to … give it up… with a return on investment. Giving the property up for the new home of… you will never guess… The New NAACP Youth Retreat Camp! Drew up the necessary paperwork and issued a copy to the taxing authority. Notified a few people that what was about to happen and why. And… presto… The decision was made that the original evaluation of the property was in its right perspective and would not be changed from past billing. It was made known that if the NAACP Youth Retreat Camp
    were to be built or designated for future use; the entire community property values would suffer great losses. Some losses were named, like… “it goes without saying.”

    “Facts are stubborn things.” –Ronald Reagan

    “Reparations”?…..did I hear someone say “reparations”?….tell you what. There was a time when I would have most cordially invited some overzealous “collector” of “reparations” to please come to my front door first so that his or her career as a collection agent for “black reparations” could get itself unceremoniously brought to a very sudden conclusion right on the spot.
    But, as you will kindly note, I have changed—all new guy now—-see I am of a very sporting mindset at this point. I will play the “reparations” game. To any and all blacks out there who are screaming “reparations” I say, name your figure.Come on, let’s hear a grand sum…and I will be most honored to pay it cash on the barrel head, RIGHT NOW….but for every dollar denominated “federal reserve note” that I hand over to the blacks for reparations….they had god damned well better be handing me about fifty for the way they totally trashed out the education system in this country…and all of the rapes of White women by blacks when the corresponding rape of blacks by White males is essentially nonexistent (largely because they have much better taste among other reasons moral or otherwise)…and all the violent crime that they are 90% responsible for even though they compose but 13% of the population of this palsied country….and all the jobs and college careers they have taken from us under “affirmative action” and “equal opportunity”….and for all the decent White kids who have been brutalized or otherwise victimized by school bussing and block busting and “racial balance”—want me to keep going?—I could go book length—-
    Oh, but, we’re not quite through yet, friends….oh no…and again, for every “dollar” that I slam down on the barrel head for “reparations” to the “afros” we are dubiously “blessed” with in this country….there had better be some fat gutted jewish Wall Street bankster standing there handing me about seventy thousand for the fact that ALL of the slave ships—every solitary last damned one of them— that plied the black slave trade from the Ivory Coast and dumped all the African slaves on our shores and conned the Southern White plantation owners into very stupidly buying them, were in fact owned by jews…like Aaron Lopez….and for all the USURY that has been infl;icted upon and in some cases quite literally sucking the life’s blood out of us American White working people…and the jewish created and PRIVATELY AND STRICTLY FOR PROFIT FOREIGN OWNED and hoaxically and quite illegally misnomered “federal reserve bank” that rips OUR money right hot off the presses of the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing and then “loans” OUR money—NOT THEIRS—-right back to us at 6% interest on face value payable in this nation’s gold….

    Oh yeah….any jew or black want to play “reparations” with me?…I am very much ready to go right now. Any takers?

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Hey houser,
      go back to demoncrat central and tell them you tried but no takers!!!

  • Justmy02

    I think Breitbart was attempting to point out that the crowd at the NAACP function CHEERING when Sherrod said she did not do her best for the white farmer was just as racist as the NAACP tried to make out that a few nutjobs carrying signs at Tea Party rallies or making remarks were. I do not believe he was attempting to show that Sherrod, herself, was racist. Unfortunately he should have explained himself better and this whole flap could have been over as quickly at it began. But again, maybe I am completely wrong…

    Until this administration ceases to use the race card at every turn racial relations in this country will never get better, but will, in fact, keep getting worse. I lived through the 60s race riots and I don’t want to see them repeated. I thought we had gotten beyond this…

  • Bob Wire

    It wasn’t the administration that open up this can of worms Justmy02

    you got that “blame the victim” mentality going on there.

    You want to apologize to BP too?

    Blame raped victims for being women?

    It your turn to buy lunch I bought me lunch the last time. ??? What???

    The primes you offer is twisted.

  • Richard W. Faith

    No one who plays the race card has any integrity whatsoever. To do so is nothing more and nothing less than a disingenuous distraction. It is the default tactic of a person who has no new information to share, no creativity, and complete unwillingness to make any real effort, other than to whine and blame others. Let no one DARE to call me a racist; I LOVE the fact that Obama is black; THE PROBLEM IS, THAT’S ALL THAT I LIKE ABOUT HIM!

    • Bob Wire

      why would you love that he’s black?

      Can you expand on your statement?

      LOVE? ~ are you sure you’ve chosen the best word to represent your “feeling”?

  • Paul Watt, Sr.

    At first blush it appeared to be a racially motivated speec! First Blush! Based on that which was leaked?? Ws their an underllying reason for partial video? intentional Setup??? Millions jumped the gun before hearing all! Administration as well since they demanded her intermmetiae resignation!!! WHO ACTUALLY JUMPED THE GUN FIRST ANT THREW HER UNDER THE BUS??? ADMINISTRATION!! THEY CLAIMED SHE WOULD BE ON BECK SHOW!! Was she even mentioned? NO!! LIE! How many hours after she resigned did Fox speak to the video? SEVERAL! Who did the administration/media blame for overplaying video since it was released? Fox – 3rd lie! NOT UNTIL 8:00 PM DID FOX SPEAK TO VIDEO!
    WRONGLY DONE – DIDN’T VERIFY! Apologized for error! Not until next day did Beck discuss it – AND SUPPORTED HER!!!!!!!!!!! NON THE LESS THEY BLAMED HIM AND FOX FOR BRING ABOUT HER DEMISE!! LIE!
    AFTER THE WHOLE ORDEAL SHE COMES OUT AND TRASHES EVERYONE “EXCEPT THOSE THAT PUT HER IN THE SITUATION” AS BEING RACIST!! She doesn’t even condemn the NAACP for the partail release nor administration for not investigating before firing her.
    EITHER SHE REALLY BELIEVES HER “CURRENT” RACIAL ACCUSATIONS OR THE ADMINISTRATION AND NAACP HAVE FULLY EXPLAINED THEIR PLAN TO BRING RACE INTO PLAY BY RACE BAITING AND maybe a little payoff? Or, I GUESS,
    in her case, once a racist always a racist. Congrats administration and NAACP good job of race baiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bob Wire

      “Once a racist always a racist”? ~

      Is that your personal belief and how you feel?

      Once a sinner (transgressor) always a sinner?

      Your views fail to allow much room for redemption.

      I take it, ~ you don’t practice the Christian faith?

      • ross

        …ya don’t get it, B’wire…

        …we all remain sinners, but some have accepted forgiveness…

  • chuck b

    paul watt

    good analysis. i think you hit right on the head

  • tnmccoy

    I’m confused. Has Breitbart admitted to any manipulation? I saw the published tape of Sherrod in her racist mode. If there’s an original tape that shows differently, why isn’t it being shown all over the media? I thought not.

  • jopa

    tnmcoyThe original tape was shown over and over on every news channel but fox.Yup not too bright bart doctored the tape.Unles the original was doctored.

    • Vicki

      And therein is the problem. WHO doctored the tape. Btw you offered no evidence that the tape was doctored so we must presume it was not.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Vicki,
        Unfortunately jopa didn’t offer ANY proof as to either “fact”!!! Was it or who did it!!!

        • Vicki

          Jopa was the “you” in my comment :)

    • Claire

      I am near the point where I believe almost nothing that I hear and half of what I see. It is tough trying to find the truth in any political matter/maneuver.

  • Jean

    Let us not overlook the true measure of the video clip which is that Ms. Sherrod obviously was unqualified to be in this particular job in the first place.

  • jopa

    I have the short edited version and the full version on dvr so I went back to take a look.Sure enough we have to presume it is doctored.Also Ms Sherrod seems to be over qualified for such a position.

  • Bob Wire

    well that’s good to know ~ The nature of the editing and the “intent” behind the piece with be an important aspect of an trial.

    We’ll find out won’t we?

  • Steve C.

    Quite frankly, I’m not sure why Jeremiah Wright, and all these old things are being brought up…yet again. If you insist on trying to bring the Obama Administration down, at LEAST bring up more current things. Also, if you want to talk about media, and things that were done, try if you can, to remember the Swift Boat Ads. Yep, one of the most dispicable attempts to spread viral lies. Unfortunately, it worked. The media will do whatever they want. FOX is right wing, so I never watch it. I get enough of undermining the President from talk radio. One thing I’ve noticed lately however, is that these right wingnuts are becoming more of entertainers and comedians than believable. Most people I know who are still Republicans, are openly laughing at these yahoos, and that is a good sign. It’s past time that we realize these talk radio ‘doom and gloom’ advocates are nothing more than hot air, and if they had their way, we would ALL be living in Montana on a compound, growing our own food, and fighting off the Federal Gvt. Pleeeeease….. this is getting old. Obama has enough to worry about, (it isn’t easy trying to fix 8 years of neglect) without trying to justify every little thing someone does. It’s time to grow up, act like adults, and pull together as Americans. I’m disgusted with tea-party fanaticals, and others who are constantly trying to bring this country down. You know….like the Republicans of 2000 said…”You can always leave, and let US take care of the country.” Somebody has to do it. btw… I DID see O’Reilly demanding Sherrod step down…priceless.

    • ross

      …get a clue–O’Reilly admitted he was wrong the next day.

      By the way, can you find criticism for Fannie and Freddie among the State-worshipping media you so love?

      …crickets chirping…

      The real estate fiasco and resultant financial meltdown couln’t have happened w/out Liberals turning Fannie and Freddie into the secondary market whores they were and still are.

      Sorry to confuse you by threatening to bring up actual NUMBERS. Get up to speed on what ACTUALLY made us hit the wall. Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are a good place to start.

  • BigBadJohn

    Un-f–ing believable ! A conservative blogger edits a tape to paint Sherrod as a racist, FOX news runs with the story, Obama screams for her dismissal and when it is shown to be a edited piece taken out of context, you folks believe poor little Briebart was set up and FOX news blameless……

    Sorry but if the the brain dead conservatives here are any indication – our great country is already lost!

    • David

      The unbelievable part is you Savior Obama fired her before the video was even aired! This smells like Chicago political tricks to smear the Tea Party groups and Fox of being the racists but someone jumped the gun and now people like you think conservative are the braindead ones you libs stopped thinking for yourselves in the 60′s. Statists always use deception to further their agendas and libs are to stupid to see it.

    • ross

      ..littlejon, you don’t have the personal integrity to actually study what really happened….

  • Jean

    The only brain dead are those who don’t bother to get the facts right, don’t want to get them right, or aren’t smart enough to get them right. That’s what happens when people only listen to the left wing liberal news outlets. You know how they withhold the truth! Unless conservatives take back this country, it truly will be lost. If people want a dictator, they should move to a country that already has one.

  • jopa

    Jean: We already had Dick Cheney and a Tator Bush running this country into the ground.We are just beginning to see the light of day after that disaster.Thank you Mr. President Obama for getting us back on course.

    • Jim H.

      jopa, 06 unemployment 4.4, now 10% Thankyou Obama for getting us back on course, be sure to tell Reid& Polosi thanks too. jopa, do you like to just stir up crap or are you really that out of touch?

    • ross

      Jaba,…a guy who’s never run so much as a lemonade stand is getting things back on course?

      Oboomer says: ” Small business is havin’ difficulty (pronounced difficulteh) gettin’ financin’.”

      The Liberal version of solving said problem: Small business can’t get financing, so let’s take their CAPITAL away from them (the coming tax hike) and run it through the sludge labyrinth of federal bureaucracy, and……….??????? And so the dim thought process goes, in those who have never had anything resembling a job…

      You Liberals are pathetic and hopeless.

      PUNISH SUCCESS. VOTE DEMOCRAT

  • jopa

    Jim h; When Obama took over we were headed toward a worldwide depression of such magnitude the world would have never recovered from it.All Americans with any common sense realize the impact Obamas decisisions have made to save the world from economic ruin.We have so much to be thankful for and hope to have your support in the future.10% unemployment is a small number cosidering where the Bush policies were leading us.I’m glad to give you a reality check since it seems you were led astray.Thank you for your attention

  • jopa

    Jimh; The unemployment rate was even higher under Reagan but got better before he left office, the best years were under Clinton so I’m sure with democratic ideals things are going to be much better.Patience my good man.

  • Jim H.

    How come people who see ” Bush policies that were to lead to this cataclysmic depression” tend to forget it was Bush policies that gave us low unemployment rates and the highest markets ever. What you think is anyone with “common sense” knowing that Obama saved us is misguided. Any one who believes the course we are on is going to cause any good has been DUPED, you included. The problem started with Freddie& Fanny, supported by Franks& Dodd. Add a liberal press to tell us how horrible it is and it will end up that way. I don’t think someone as out of touch with reality as you should be the one to give me a reality check. I would bet if big government would have left it alone, we would have been recovered by now. When in our history have unemployment benefits need to be extended to 75 weeks? Only under the (leadership?) of our savior Obama. Thank you for letting me give your poor misguided soul even more attention.

  • Jim H.

    In 06 the unemployment rate was lower and the markets higher than any time under Clinton and remember Clinton didn’t have a Dem congress. That’s what made him look good.

  • jopa

    Jim; Just googled the rates and came up with 4.63 in 06 for Bush,3,97 in 99 for Clinton, and3.75 for Truman in 1948.

  • jopa

    Also have to mention the stock market crashed because of Bush and has gone up 5-600 points since Obama took office.

    • ross

      Jaba, get a clue…the market crashed as a result of real estate speculation STARTED by Liberals’ demands for NO LENDING STANDARDS, facilitated by whores Fannie and Freddie offering a guaranteed secondary market.

      Did I lose you yet? I’ll slow down.

      Wall street saw an opening and headed for it. It was “legal”, and it was obviously going to hit a wall SOMETIME. Hence the Default Swaps and what that turned into.

      But it couldn’t have happened without the Community Reinvestment Act (Liberals) and going forward with looser and looser lending standards, making it official policy through Fannie and Freddie, and Liberals saying “Bend over, America–you’re gonna love home ownership whether you like it or not.”

  • jopa

    It really was’nt a decline it was more like a crash with the republican policies of deregulation same as the banks.Some business men really cannot be trusted so they do need watchdogs.

    • ross

      Jaba, try holding your breath ’til your “watchdogs”, as you call them, get at the root of the housing bubble with Fannie and Freddie…are you turning blue yet?

      WATCHDOGS indeed. Please explain who these watchdogs are.

  • Jim H.

    jopa, you still haven’t really explained how Freddie and Fannie had nothing to do with the collapse of a good strong economy. And you haven’t told me just how Bush single handed caused the greatest economic collapse ever and why after spending over a trillion dollars to maintain the status quo, we should thank our lucky stars that we have Obama and a Dem congress.

  • jopa

    Jimh;There was nobody watching over Fannie Freddie,AIG or the rest of the thieves on Wall Street due to deregulation that began under everybodies favorite Ronald Reagan.Also the bank bailouts were implemented under the Bush administration and everyonr in America does’nt have amnesia.To go back further in the ditch with republican ideals would be economic suicide and the end of American leadership.

    • Jim H.

      jopa, Bush wanted to put stronger regs on Freddie and Fannie( the biggest cause of where we are now), but Frank, Dodd and other Dem members of congress fought it. Bush was wrong to implement the bank bailouts and it was even just as wrong for Obama to do it even more. To go back to the Republican ideals is way more preferable than advancing with the Obama, Pelosi, Reid, boondogle we have right now. A trillion more national debt to stimulate jobs with NO CHANGE in the unemployment rate? Not the path to prosperity , economic strength, or American leadership. I hope in Nov. everyone DOESN’T have amnesia. You still haven’t really answered my questions, or proven anything.

  • stilllearning

    95% of blacks voted for Obama because he is black. Is anyone really surprised that most blacks are racist? And I would also like to add that Islam is evil and stop the sodomy.
