  • Tawana Brawley Finally Forced to Pay Man She Defamed

    08/05/2013 6:53:24 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 38 replies
    In an exclusive to the New York Post, the paper reported Sunday that after 25 years, former New York prosecutor Steven Pagones is finally getting justice from Tawana Brawley. The Post reports that Pagones recently received his first payments from Brawley as money is being collected through wage garnishments: $3,764.61 so far, with $431,000 to go. In 1987, Brawley, with the promotional assistance of Rev. Al Sharpton and lawyers C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox, defamed Pagones in the infamous race-baiting fake rape case that grabbed headlines around the world. As Breitbart News has previously recalled, in November 1987, fifteen...
  • Pay-up time for Brawley: '87 rape-hoaxer finally shells out for slander

    NY Post ^ | August 4, 2013 | MICHAEL GARTLAND
    Twenty-five years after accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying for her lies. Last week, 10 checks totaling $3,764.61 were delivered to ex-prosecutor Steven Pagones — the first payments Brawley has made since a court determined in 1998 that she defamed him with her vicious hoax. A Virginia court this year ordered the money garnisheed from six months of Brawley’s wages as a nurse there. She still owes Pagones $431,000 in damages. And she remains defiantly unapologetic. “It’s a long time coming,” said Pagones, 52, who to this day is more interested in extracting a confession...

    A small town near the Mexican border is going up in flames, with more than 10 fires set over the past few months. Christine Pelisek talks to locals about the baffling whodunit. Last November, a series of fires began to plague the small California city of Brawley. The first fire gutted a large vacant two-story office building. Soon after that, a furniture store, a woman’s gym, a historic theater, and a restaurant were set on fire. On Easter Sunday, a parking structure and a flower shop were also torched. Next came a 99-cent store, and then, last Tuesday, the A...

    Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her. “For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down, thanks to The Post. “To me, this has always been about responsibility and accountability,’’ added the former ADA, who won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than...

    Al Sharpton may have mellowed - but he still won't apologize for the Tawana Brawley debacle. A quarter-century later after he whipped up racial tensions over the incendiary case, Sharpton still stands by a story that the courts of law and public opinion long ago ruled a hoax. Pressed on CBS' "60 Minutes" to explain why he never apologized for accusations that proved false, Sharpton said, "I don't know that." "I have thought about that a million times," Sharpton said. "I just don't believe they treated that case fair." Back in 1987, 15-year-old Brawley claimed she had been abducted and...

A compilation of links and references appears at http://www.stentorian.com/Obama. The picture below is from an April 2007 meeting of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network: a racist and anti-Semitic hate organization as demonstrated by its conduct at Freddy’s Fashion Mart, a Jewish-owned store in Harlem. Obama endorsed Sharpton and the NAN as follows: “Reverend Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What National Action Network has done is so important...

    A good strategist pays attention to what his enemy does not do, as well as what he does. NJDC’S "Guide to Responding to Obama, Clinton, and Edwards Smears aimed at Jewish Voters" actually makes some valid points, but one is conspicuous in its absence: the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton. We know quite well from prior experience that the National Jewish Democratic Council would lie on Obama’s behalf, or whitewash and downplay his failings, if it were conceivably possible to do so. The fact that NJDC does not address Obama’s blatant promotion of Al Sharpton and his National Action...

    It is a basic tenet of common sense, not to mention common decency, that public figures like celebrities and politicians do not consort with, promote, endorse, or otherwise empower racists and/or anti-Semites. Endorsement of hate mongers or hate groups, or proven hate speech, can easily derail or even end a career. We fail to understand why Barack Obama is getting a pass from the media on his open association with and promotion of the country’s most vicious racist and anti-Semitic hate mongers, who now include the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan. First, however, let’s take a look at the standard...

    The voice sounds familiar. “Hey, Al, this is Hillary Clinton, and...” Is it really her? Yep. Clinton is actually calling Sharpton for—pinch yourselves, folks—campaign advice. She wants to know what issues she should raise in an upcoming debate at Howard University. The focus is on black issues, and, well, who is a better judge of black issues in America than the ubiquitous face of them? Sharpton has the cigar back in his fingers now. He wants the phone back. “Here,” he says, making sure to save the message. “Now, check this out.” Another voice. “Al, this is Barack Obama...” Obama!...

    It is inconceivable that any candidate could expect to be elected President after making statements like these or similar ones, but Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards have done exactly that. They have openly endorsed a prominent racist and anti-Semite whose hate speech played at least an indirect role in inciting two violent incidents in which people were killed: the Crown Heights riots and the arson of a Jewish-owned store in Harlem. The source is not some Republican blog, but the racist and anti-Semitic hate organization itself. It is vital that readers circulate this information as widely as possible...

    Former Gov. Mitt Romney yesterday turned the tables on the Rev. Al Sharpton yesterday, lambasting him as an example of “bigotry in America” after the controversial cleric insulted Mormonism by saying Romney’s White House bid will be defeated by voters who “really believe in God.” Romney responded to the remark with uncharacteristic anger, firing off a series of heated statements accusing Sharpton of perpetuating the bigotry he so often rails against. Sharpton most recently led the charge to fire radio host Don Imus for racist remarks. “Al Sharpton made a bigoted comment,” Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said yesterday. “It is...

Meanwhile, stories about Obama's attendance at a madrasa, and his connection with a Black separatist minister, take on added seriousness in light of his recent visit to Al Sharpton's racist and anti-Semitic hate group.

Sheehan had arrived in Bush's hometown on Aug. 6 and refused to leave until she could question the president about the war that has killed more than 1,870 U.S. service members, including her 24-year-old son, Casey.

    Where is Reverend Al Sharpton's apology? "Black leader" and former presidential candidate Al Sharpton recently capped off a busy week by demanding apologies from Mexican President Vicente Fox and Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. Fox, in defending Mexican illegals working in America, said such workers take jobs that "even blacks" refuse to do. Enter Sharpton. He demanded an apology, arguing Fox's words "confirm the stereotype that blacks are the lowest peons in the workforce of this country." Although Fox promptly "clarified" his remarks and told Sharpton that he "regretted any hurt feelings," Sharpton remains unappeased. "If I step on...

Sharpton is under no illusion of the enormous task ahead, but like other Black activists that have gone before him such as Ron Brown and Rev Jesse Jackson he knows that his presence in the presidential race will at the very least raise the profile of the Black vote and the issues of Black people.
