Pat Caddell EVISCERATES the Modern Press as Democrat operatives

with one comment

Drop what you’re doing. You MUST watch this video RIGHT NOW, before you watch any news today, and you must remember it as you are watching any news in the future…

I haven’t posted in so long because I was beginning to feel like it was a useless effort. Oh, I’ve reblogged a few things, but for the most part I haven’t bothered to write anything because in my mind it was a waste of time.

This video will NOT be a waste of your time. I promise. It was posted on You Tube back in September, 2012 just before the election. I so wish more people had taken heed of his alarm, because it’s only gotten worse since then. Everything he says is even more relevant now in 2015, and it will continue to be relevant until the American people put their (collective) foot down and say NO MORE.

MUST SEE: Leftist Filmmaker Exposes Horrific Truth Of Radical Islam In Brilliant Quick Summary

leave a comment »

 I am quite familiar with the Murfreesboro, TN mosque issue since I live in the Middle Tennessee area and have many friends in the city of Murfreesboro. Really not such a ‘small town” as noted in the article – but a town of around 100,000 with the largest state university in Tennessee located near it’s center… and just a few blocks away from the proposed Mosque site. Walking distance, really.

So, I am pretty sure that waiting for other muslims to drive on out to Murfreesboro to attend their worship times isn’t the only agenda on the Imam’s mind… but all that fresh, young brain material they’d like to wash with their islamic propaganda. Can you say missions field? I knew you could!

Van Jones leading chant at Occupy Wall Street Protest

with 5 comments

Former Obama Administration Green Czar Van Jones was video taped recently leading a group of “Occupy Wall Street” protestors in a little chant. Not surprising considering other noted communist idols such as Frances Fox-Piven have also shown up to egg the protestors on in their efforts to annoy New Yorkers and damage the environment in the immediate vicinity.

I cannot imagine that the administration of the President of the United States would not have done a background check on anyone being considered for a job at the White House. Van Jones’ open communism has never really been a secret except with the Obama worshiping mainstream media.

They know Obama’s time is short in the White House. That is why they are doing this now. Looking at the timing of the vote to enact a surtax on the rich it’s not hard to put two and two together to know that the White House is in lockstep with the protestors and their leader’s plans to push the government further into socialism.

So, all that said… here he is. Van Jones in all his glory.

Anderson Cooper: “I was WRONG…” to not challenge Shirley Sherrod for calling Andrew Breitbart a racist

leave a comment »

In a pleasantly surprising admission, Anderson Cooper has stated he was wrong to not question Shirley Sherrod’s smearing of Big Government’s website founder, Andrew Breitbart.

Mea Culpa 360: CNN Anchor Says He Was Wrong to Let Shirley Sherrod Smear Andrew Breitbart Unchallenged

Big Government posted the edited video of Sherrod’s speech, which was sent to them already edited. They had no way to check the whole speech – though even the edited version included Sherrod’s revelation of her ‘lesson learned’ moment where she realized ‘it was not about black and white”. The full video was in the possession of the NAACP for months prior to it’s posting on Big Government, yet they never bothered to watch it to see the full context of Sherrod’s story. Even Chris Matthews (who was the first to defend Breitbart) admitted the Big Government post of Ms. Sherrod’s speech included her admitting her change of heart.

And what does Sherrod have to say while being interviewed by Anderson Cooper? (watch from about 2:00 on the video):

Shirley Sherrod Goes After Breitbart on AC360

“…I think he’d like to get us stuck back in the times of slavery, that’s where I think he’d like to see all black people end up again… I think he’s so vicious…”

Anderson asks her, “You think he’s racist?”

“Yes I DO, that’s why I think he’s so vicious against a black president, you know. He would go after me, I don’t think it was even the NAACP he was totally after, I think he was after a black president.”

(REALLY? How interesting that you would say that, Ms. Sherrod. Does that mean that everyone who is white and disagrees with a black person is racist?)

The fact is that Breitbart received the tape pre-edited. This tape had Sherrod making a speech to a group at an NAACP event, talking about how she held back the ‘full force” of what she could do for him – simply because he was white. Her reasons, as was later revealed in the subsequent full length video later posted by the NAACP, were that her father had been murdered by a white farmer, who was not convicted by an all white jury. I don’t know the circumstances of the man’s death, but I can understand why she might have ill feelings toward whites.

Sherrod did spell out the lesson she learned during her experience with the white farmer she had been assigned to help, but has she really gotten past ‘the black-white thing’? I don’t believe she has. Many, many both black and white people in this nation also have not gotten past it. Just listen to the laughter of the crowd Sherrod is speaking to when she admits she wasn’t giving a white farmer all the help she could have… they laugh. It was funny to them, I guess. Comeuppance. Sweet revenge. Turn about is fair play. Poetic justice.

Or reverse racial discrimination.

The reason there are still such tender sensibilities regarding race in this nation is that we still have not implemented in our own hearts and conversation the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr. who in his famous speech talked about how he dreamed one day his children would be judged on the content of their character instead of the color of their skin. This is a biblical and reasonable premise that has been left out of the public discourse almost altogether.

Another is the concept of forgiveness – not the kind where someone catches you in a faux pas or perhaps you even insult someone purposefully and you have to apologize publicly and they talk about whether you really meant it on the talk shows and cable news, who incidentally who once they start talking about go on and on and on and on… but the genuine kind of forgiveness. You know – where you ask for forgiveness and the person you’ve offended forgives you. Period.

And so on that note, Anderson, you’re forgiven, and your willingness to humble yourself to apologize is appreciated and refreshing. Now let’s move on.

Press Release: Black Leader Again Requests Obama Call for Black Panther Special Prosecutor

leave a comment »

For release July 13, 2010

Washington, D.C. — After seven months of silence, and with controversy growing by the day, the chairman of the Project 21 black leadership network sent President Barack Obama a second certified letter asking for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the Justice Department’s questionable handling of its voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party.

Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie wrote a letter to President Obama on December 4, 2009 asking for a special prosecutor that continues to remain unanswered. In his second certified letter to President Obama, dated July 8, 2010, Massie wrote: “During the time that I have not been dignified with a reply, the problem has festered to a point where perceptions of racial bias within your Justice Department cannot be ignored.”

“Seeing that President Obama has ignored reasonable requests by me and others for a thoughtful investigation of the alleged flagrant abuses at the Justice Department, one can only deduce that the actions there may have his silent support,” said Massie.

On Election Day 2008, three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense were alleged to have intimidated voters outside of a Philadelphia polling place. Career attorneys at the U.S. Department of Justice pursued a case against the men and were on the verge of a verdict against them when Obama Administration political appointees at the Department were said to have “ordered them to reverse course” on the case.

Charges against two of the men were the dropped completely, and the man wielded a nightstick at the polling place on Election Day 2008 was ordered to refrain from do so again until November 15, 2012.

In his original certified letter to President Obama, which was received by the White House on December 14, 2009, Project 21’s Massie pointed out the seriousness of the allegations and the concern Obama and his key allies — including Attorney General Eric Holder — expressed in the past for allegations of unethical behavior and avoidance of civil right prosecutions at the Justice Department.

In his request, which was repeated in the second letter, Massie wrote: “Because of your past concern about maintaining the Justice Department’s impartiality, actions taken in response to past allegations and new revelations of a separate but no less serious incident taking place under the Justice Department’s new leadership, I ask for your assistance in seeking the appointment of a special prosecutor.”

Since then, one of the career attorneys who prosecuted the case — J. Christian Adams — has resigned in protest about the handling of the case. Adams testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that the Obama Justice Department “abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens” with regard to the New Black Panther Party case.

Adams has further testified that “[t]here is an open hostility to race-neutral enforcement of voting rights laws” within the Obama Justice Department and that career staff are being ordered not to comply with Civil Rights Commission subpoenas for more information about the case.

“It’s very disconcerting that the Obama Justice Department seems to have a double-standard regarding racism,” noted Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli. “While they are fighting the Arizona immigration law in part because it is claimed that it might erode civil rights, they are reportedly unwilling to do anything about voting rights complaints that don’t fit a politically-correct framework. Justice is supposed to be color-blind, but it sees to have become racially politicized under the first black president and first black attorney general. This erodes the Obama Administration’s credibility.”

Massie added: “The President’s inaction with regard to the New Black Panther Party case allows the perception of racial bias at the Justice Department to fester. It is yet another curious and questionable action regarding race by this White House that will likely impact how history perceives Obama. One thing he could do to help himself if answer Project 21’s certified letter.”

Massie has sent a copy of this second letter to Congressman Frank Wolf, ranking member of the House Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations Subcommittee; Congressman Lamar Smith, ranking member of the House Committee on the Judiciary; Congressman Darrell Issa, ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

MSNBC’s CHRIS MATTHEWS SAYS IT IS HIS JOB TO MAKE OBAMA’S PRESIDENCY WORK

with one comment

Chris “I Found My Thrill” Matthews is apparently now acting as an unpaid press secretary for president-elect Obama!

“I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, to make this new presidency work.”

Matthews stated on the Morning Joe. When the interviewers began to question him on this, you can hear him say,

“Yeah, that’s my job. It’s my job to help this country… this country needs a successful presidency…”

And so Matthews thinks he needs to help “Barack”, who he is now on a first name basis with.

Matthews is not a journalist – he’s a propagandist. Journalists ask questions… but he acts like he wants a JOB in the White House so he can be near the Messiah. He is as much ADMITTING COLLUSION in using his position to work for Obama… most likely continuing the barrage of radical, leftist propaganda that we’ve come to expect from “journalists” such as him.

This is SO unethical – he should be FIRED and FINED and possibly JAILED. (Is that possible???)

Thanks to the guys (and gal) at Morning Joe for calling him on it.

Here it is…

If they pull this video, which they already did to the other you tube clip I posted (under Fair Use), then you can also see a longer clip on the MSNBC Video Player. The statement by Matthews takes place at around 2 2 & 1/2 minutes into the clip. Date November 6.
