  • Jesse Jackson Cornered by Angry Ferguson Protesters: ‘When You Going to Stop Selling Us Out?

    At least two protesters cornered Jesse Jackson at a McDonald’s in Ferguson, Mo., tearing into him for what they saw as a lack of leadership after Michael Brown’s death, according to video posted by Western Journalism. (Image via Western Journalism) “You’ve been marching all day long? We haven’t seen you marching all day long,” he said. “Are you going to pay the bond of those brothers that’s been locked up?” “Are you marching today with us, or are you just going to sit in the car?” the second protester demanded. “We ain’t seen you!” the first protester said. “When you...
  • Toy Story: The True Identity of Andy's Mom Makes The Movie More Epic

    02/26/2014 4:13:43 PM PST · by OneVike · 10 replies ^ | 2/24/14 | Jon Negroni
    Andy's mom has always been a bit of an enigma. In the first Toy Story, we barely even saw her face. That's all fine because throughout the movies, the real focus has been on Andy and the love he has for those toys. But this is Pixar, and it stands to reason that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the Davis family (Andy's last name). In order to understand who Ms. Davis really is, we have to start with something seemingly simple: a hat. In the picture below, you see Andy's cowboy hat that...
  • Disney's 'Jessie' Features Mean Girl Named ... Breitbart

    Breitbart ^ | 8/11/13 | staff
    Bryn, a recurring character on the Disney Channel show Jessie, is the protypical Mean Girl, just just like the Tina Fey movie of the same name. And her last name is Breitbart. Here's how the Jessie Wikia page for her character, played by Katherine McNamara, describes her: Bryn Breitbart is a snobby, mean girl that attends East View High School. She was thought to be thirteenth in line for the throne of Denmark, but was then discovered to be a liar. She turned all of Emma's friends against her in the episode Kids Don't Wanna Be Shunned. It is revealed...
  • Jesse Jackson Jr. charged with spending $750G of campaign funds on personal items

    02/15/2013 7:37:02 PM PST · by NoLibZone · 19 replies ^ | Feb 15 2013 |
    Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was charged in federal court Friday with conspiring to use campaign funds for personal use -- in an alleged $750,000 spending spree that included purchases of a gold-plated Rolex and pricey children's furniture. It had been expected that a plea agreement would be entered into court Friday, but that agreement is apparently still pending. Instead, federal prosecutors charged Jackson Friday with conspiracy. Prosecutors separately charged his wife Sandi with filing false federal tax returns, but according to her attorney she has reached a plea agreement. In a statement, the former Illinois Democratic congressman said he...

    DETROIT (CBS 62) Rev. Jesse Jackson stopped by the Michigan Matters set to talk with host Carol Cain about developments in the Trayvon Martin murder case and the emergency manager saga playing out in Detroit. Jackson also offered a frank assessment of Gov. Rick Snyder’s dealings with the Motor City financial crisis. “You can’t separate the largest organ in your body from who you are,” he said about the state’s relationship with the city. “Detroit doesn’t have a problem, Michigan has a problem. Why is Detroit in crisis? We bailed out the automotive industry but the city has not been...

    Civil-rights activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson took the microphone shortly before noon today at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Eatonville and pronounced slain teen-ager Trayvon Martin to be a martyr. "Martyrs have power," Jackson said near the end of his hour-long sermon. "He represents all of us." Dressed in a dark gray suit and blue tie, Jackson began his address with a chant: "Stop the violence. Save the Children. Keep hope alive!" "How do we go from a moment to a movement that creates fundamental change," Jackson asked the capacity crowd, estimated at 1,600 people. "If it's a moment,...

    Panning the crowd at Obama’s celebration rally in Chicago, the cameras found Jesse Jackson crying. Maybe he was thinking of this. Remember? The Rev. Jesse Jackson issued an apology to Barack Obama Wednesday for making what he called a “crude and hurtful” remark about the Illinois senator’s recent comments directed toward some members of the black community. According to Jackson, a Fox News microphone picked up comments he meant to deliver privately that seemed to disparage the presumptive Democratic nominee for appearing to lecture the black community on morality. Jackson didn’t elaborate on the context of his remarks, except to...

BP is listed in the conference program as a Bronze Sponsor, a designation costing $10,000. Flaherty said, "Jesse Jackson is bluffing a foreign company. He has virtually no ability to affect the consumer habits of Americans, or even African Americans....

    Will the Bombs in Baghdad Explode in Havana? By Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. 10/14/2003 ?? Tribune Media Service A car bomb kills six and wounds 35 in Baghdad. Al-Qaeda is reportedly planning new assaults on the United States. Clearly Fidel Castro is in trouble. Fidel Castro? What does he have to do with Iraq and Osama bin Laden? Nothing, of course, but that may just be the point. Bush's preemptive war on Iraq has led to an occupation that isn't going well. American casualties and suicides are up. The Army brass is in virtual public revolt, with half of...

    Today in this country, as a result of politics and the news media, there are individuals who, by default, lead large groups of people. I've never completely understood why this happens. While it's often a good thing, what happens when these unappointed leaders are misrepresenting the specific group of people they claim to represent? Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, for example, have for some time been the unelected representatives to the media for black people in America. Another example of such representation is the National Education Association, which claims to work for the education of every child, but has long...

    Reprinted from Lott and the DachshundsRalph R. ReilandSunday, Dec. 29, 2002 What's dumb about Trent Lott is that he should have known how tricky it is to talk about race in America. Excuse the pun, but the top dog in the Senate should have known that we're at the point where you can't even say that dachshunds aren't so good with kids without being called a racist. Remember when the fur hit the fan a few years back when the American Kennel Club said in its best-selling "The Complete Dog Book" that some breeds were better with young children...

Already a regular on MSNBC's political program "Hardball," Ventura would probably be scheduled for prime time, maybe the 7 p.m. slot occupied by Phil Donahue, the Journal reported. Donahue's comeback effort hasn't gotten big ratings.</p>
