  • 'Guardian' deletes reference to Palestinians, CNN labels synagogue 'mosque'

    11/18/2014 5:33:45 AM PST · by SJackson · 14 replies
    From mistaking the Har Nof synagogue where Tuesday's terror attack took place for a mosque, to deleting references to Palestinian perpetrators, some of the international media continued to report on the events in Israel in an eyebrow-raising manner on Tuesday. The website of British newspaper The Guardian ran a story about the attack from Reuters. The wire dispatch the agency sent included the headline 'Palestinians kill four in Jerusalem synagogue attack' and led with the sentence: ''Two Palestinians armed with a meat cleaver and a gun killed four people in a Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday before being shot dead by...
  • GhomeshiGate- Did CBC Permit A Culture of Sexual Harassment and Entitlement?

    Canada Free Press ^ | November 4, 2014 | Mitch Wolfe
    To date nine women have accused former CBC star, Jian Ghomeshi, of alleged sexual harassment and physical and mental abuse, occurring before, during and after sexual encounters. Two of these women were former employees of CBC. .... I believe that CBC is in serious trouble because it is being alleged by the National Post and Toronto Sun, that CBC managers and staff must have known about Ghomeshi’s unacceptable conduct towards young CBC women staffers and his apparent attempt to use his powerful CBC position to pursue his personal sexual conquests. And by turning a blind eye to Ghomeshi, CBC has...

    The executive producer of Q is taking time away from work as the CBC continues to come to grips with the scandal surrounding the show’s former host, Jian Ghomeshi. Arif Noorani has decided to “take some time off while we get more clarity around the situation,” said Chuck Thompson, the public broadcaster’s head of public affairs, in an e-mail. He said it was the producer’s decision. Noorani could not be reached for comment late on Monday, but an automatic reply on his e-mail says he is “out of the office this week.” He has been with the program since 2007,...

    Canada's CBC has begun to lay out its version of events leading up to the firing of Jian Ghomeshi last Sunday, which includes evidence of "physical injury to a woman." The embattled radio host first told the pubcaster last spring that the Toronto Star newspaper was investigating allegations by an ex-girlfriend that "he had engaged in non-consensual 'rough sex,'" Heather Conway, head of English services at the CBC, said in an internal memo to employees obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. Ghomeshi advised the CBC he had a letter from the newspaper that made allegations about his private life. "When directly...

    A trio of House Democrats is calling on President Obama to allow U.S. troops in West Africa to provide direct care to Ebola patients. The Obama administration has already committed around 4,000 U.S. troops to help fight Ebola in the affected West African countries, but they are performing tasks such as building treatment centers and training local providers, not directly providing care. Reps. Keith Ellison (Minn.), Karen Bass (Calif.), and Barbara Lee (Calif.) want to change that.

    Politics makes strange bedfellows, the old cliché goes, and nowhere was that more apparent than at last week’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBC) annual legislative conference, where black activists teamed up with Planned Parenthood to host a panel promoting contraception and increased access to abortion for African American women. Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger in the 1920s as the American Birth Control League (it changed its name in 1943). Sanger was a well-known eugenicist who once said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” By founding her organization, she hoped to discourage blacks and...

NPR reports that Holder will be leaving office as soon as his successor is in place, which could take as long as into early next year. Holder is the fourth longest serving AG in U.S. history. Moments after the NPR story broke, Nancy Pelosi confirmed the report to a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus, eliciting outcries of dismay...

In his 2011 book, Loudon presented documented evidence that Barack Obama’s rise in politics was not an accident, but a conscious, decade-long effort by the radical left to promote a candidate with African roots. Obama, he said, was packaged as an engaging and seemingly harmless Trojan Horse radical, sent to Chicago to refine his skills running for office as a...

    When Congress returns to Washington this week from their long summer recess, lawmakers will waste little time weighing a legislative response to last month's turmoil in Ferguson, Mo. The violent stand-offs that followed the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer set off a firestorm of congressional criticism over the police response to public protest. Although the saga has largely faded from the headlines, a number of lawmakers will resuscitate it in coming days in order to highlight various proposals designed to prevent another similar incident. Senate Democrats will hold a hearing Tuesday to examine...

    WASHINGTON — With their Senate majority imperiled, Democrats are trying to mobilize African-Americans outraged by the shooting in Ferguson, Mo., to help them retain control of at least one chamber of Congress for President Obama’s final two years in office. In black churches and on black talk radio, African-American civic leaders have begun invoking the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, along with conservative calls to impeach Mr. Obama, as they urge black voters to channel their anger by voting Democratic in the midterm elections, in which minority turnout is typically lower.

    Southern Democrats in tight Senate races want to energize the black vote without relying on the nation’s highest profile black politician: President Barack Obama. The president is deeply unpopular in states like North Carolina, Louisiana and Arkansas, and vulnerable Democratic incumbents there aren’t eager to be seen with him. Still, their campaigns — and Democratic control of the Senate — could well hinge on whether African Americans turn out in large numbers. That’s where the Congressional Black Caucus comes in. Prominent caucus members, including Reps. John Lewis of Georgia, Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Elijah Cummings of Maryland, are...

His camp is already rushing to amend the financial documents, the New York Daily News reported. But the oversight is especially notable for Mr. Rangel in that he has a history of ethical missteps that included a 2010 censure by the House for taking a trip to the Caribbean on corporate donor dime. This China trip came in August. Mr. Rangel was one of...

    It’s an interesting dynamic. And apparently it goes both ways. It’s not news that black politicians, particularly of the older sort, hate Obama. The Congressional Black Caucus nearly went all in for Hillary. Jesse Jackson talked about cutting off Obama’s nuts. No doubt much worse was said in private. Some of this may be a personality clash between the old corrupt generation of black pols, the Charlie Rangel era, and the younger savvier Cory Bookers, like the one that played out in Newark. The Charlie Rangels think the Obamas and Bookers are too slick and too phony, that they don’t...

The political tome about the 2012 presidential campaign, “Double Down,” says Obama had little patience for “professional left” activists and “vanishingly close to zero” for what a White House aide called “professional blacks.” “Apart from Georgia Congressman John Lewis and Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, Obama had nearly as much contempt for the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) as he did for the Tea Party Caucus,”...

    Why are U.S. hurricanes given names? Names are actually given to tropical storms but if they reach a sustained wind speed of 74 miles per hour, then they are deemed hurricanes. These types of destructive storms are given monikers because naming them makes it much easier for meteorologists, researchers, emergency response workers, ship captains, and citizens to communicate about specific hurricanes in a clear manner. So after decades of hurricane and storm names, did a Black Congresswoman demand that African-American names be included? ...

    The Congressional Black Caucus wants Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security, now that former Sec. Janet Napolitano has resigned to become president of the University of California System. The Houston Chronicle reported that CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge sent a letter to President Barack Obama last week to “encourage [him] to strongly consider” Jackson Lee for the Cabinet post. “Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland safety,” the letter says. It cites Jackson Lee’s former position as Chairwoman...

    Just two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot. A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported. “Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads....

    July 29, 2013 Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary Hannah Jeffrey Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus...

    The confirmations of two African-American judicial candidates in Florida are being held up by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Congressional Black Caucus leaders are demanding action for what they call negligence and obstruction on the part of the senator. Brian Davis, a nominee for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District, and William Thomas, a candidate for the U.S District Court for the Southern District, both made it through Florida’s Federal Judicial Nominating Commission, which routinely makes recommendations to state senators who meet the candidates and send letters of initial approval to the White House. Then, the president nominates...

    A member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Yvette Clarke, said Monday evening that the George Zimmerman acquittal proves one thing: America puts less value on black lives than on white lives. “The tragic death of our young man, Trayvon Martin, followed by the acquittal of the man who pursued him and killed him, has reminded us that although it may seem as if African-Americans and other minorities have achieved full equality in our civil society, we are still victims of racial profiling in violation of our laws and our morals,” Ms. Clarke said, from the House floor, The Hill...

    A member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) said Monday night that the Trayvon Martin trial is the latest evidence that America does not value the lives of blacks and whites equally. "The tragic death of our young man, Trayvon Martin, followed by the acquittal of the man who pursued him and killed him, has reminded us that although it may seem as if African Americans and other minorities have achieved full equality in our civil society, we are still victims of racial profiling in violation of our laws and our morals," Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) said on the House...

    ... If the language is being used to criticize a black person then we must deem such language to be irreparably and irrevocably racist,” Fudge said. “Every word that is used to disguise the racist intentions of a racist political movement must be deemed a racist code word disguising the true racist intentions of the racists who make use of them.” Congressman Jim Clyburn went even further. “The entire English language was created by slaveowners as a means of oppression. You can’t just say that one word is a racist code word or another. The whole language, every single word,...

    Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are readying a flurry of bills in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal on charges in last year’s fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. The lawmakers are drafting proposals intended to rein in racial profiling; scrap state stand-your-ground laws; and promote better training for the nation’s neighborhood watch volunteers, among other anti-violence measures. . . . Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), head of the CBC, decried “the presumption of guilt so often associated with people of color.” . . . [Rep. Frederica] Wilson said she’s also working on legislation offering financial incentives to states that repeal...

    Some people insist that guilt by association is unfair. They often dredge up Sen. Joe McCarthy as an example of what that sort of thing can lead to. But the fact is that we all judge people by those with whom they choose to associate. That’s where the expression about people lying down with dogs and getting up with fleas originated. And the fact is, more often than not, McCarthy was right, although it was his own fault that he usually came off as a buffoon and drunken bully, thereby tainting even those of us who recognized that Soviet spies...
