    CNS News: If blacks don't vote, 'snatch' the 'color back,' says CleaverBy: Devonia Smith September 22, 2012 Friday, CNS News surfaced a C-SPAN video of Chairman Emanuel Cleaver of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) passionately demanding that African-Americans who don't vote, "ought to give us their color back." The video was taped the evening before when Cleaver was speaking to a CBC forum on the subject of voting rights. There was no laughter from the audience when Cleaver angrily declared, "They (blacks) aren't worth the color if they don't vote; they ought to give us their color back." Apparently, that...
  • How Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Helped Leak the Secret Romney Fund-raiser Video

    The damning video of Mitt Romney telling a room of wealthy donors how he really feels about the freeloading 47 percent of Americans "who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it," among other candid things, has been floating around online in bits and pieces for three months, but didn't hit the big time until it was published by David Corn at Mother Jones today. Credited as a "research assistant" on the story is James Carter IV, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, who has been toiling online as an opposition researcher and...

"In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and...

    ...Mark Alan Siegel, the Palm Beach County Democrat Chairman spoke with Scottie Hughes of Patriot TV and made some rather pointed and anti-Christian statements. Mr. Siegel was wearing a “Jews for Obama” pin. Ms. Hughes spotted the pin and asked the chairman about his support for Obama despite the administration’s record with Israel. Here are a couple of the offensive comments made by the Palm Beach Democratic Chairman: “I’m Jewish, I’m not a fan of any other religion than Judaism.” “The worst possible allies for the Jewish state are the fundamentalist Christians who want Jews to die and convert so...

    "Monday it was California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton comparing Paul Ryan to notorious Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Yesterday, a Kansas delegate -- Pat Lehman, Dean of the Kansas delegation -- compared Republicans to Hitler. Well, if it's Wednesday and Democrats are frustrated because racist America won’t get its act together and vote for a failed president, you're going to hear another Nazi reference: S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast. On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at...

    Imagine for a moment, if you will, Sarah Palin attending an event at Ohio State University. She casually greets college aged supporters, and a group of excited, young students decide to spell out the word “Ohio” using the old YMCA routine. The group is in place, arms readied, fans surrounding them armed with their cameras and cellphones. Then this happens… OIHI. It is inarguable that the media, in all their smugness and ‘we are intellectually superior’ attitude would have ripped her from the California coast to the glaciated plains of … well … Oihi. Oi. Hi.

  • Frenzied Media Give Four Times More Coverage to Akin Flap Than Biden's 'Chains' Smear

    08/22/2012 5:25:31 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 16 replies
    A week after giving relatively light coverage to Joe Biden's "chains" smear, the broadcast networks eagerly dove into the Todd Akin controversy, giving over four times more coverage to an uproar involving a statewide (conservative) politician than a controversy involving a national (liberal) politician. NBC, CBS and ABC's evening and morning shows have devoted an astonishing 88 minutes (or 40 segments) of coverage to Congressman Akin's "legitimate rape" remark. Over a similar three day period, the networks allowed a scant 19 minutes (or ten segments) to a racially charged gaffe by the Vice President of the United States.
  • Akin: Hyenas in the GOP ignore medical science, eat their own

    08/22/2012 7:43:13 PM PDT · by JediJones · 226 replies
    The slavering, slobbering hyenas in the Republican party, by tearing at the flesh of their own senatorial candidate Todd Akin, are doing their best to blow their shot at taking control of the Senate. By eating their own, they are consuming themselves. And they seem too brainless to know it. If he loses this race, it will be the fault of party poobahs, not Todd Akin. One of the party leaders actually suggested last night that the GOP try to run a third-party challenge to their own candidate. That would be a certifiably guaranteed way to forfeit victory to the...

    Nobody’s perfect. Sometimes this statement is used to ridiculously minimize a huge problem (cf. Joe E. Brown’s closing line to Jack Lemmon, in “Some Like It Hot.”), and sometimes it’s used to fairly state an undeniable fact: that there is certainly something imperfect about everyone. No matter whether you’re selecting a spouse or friend in your personal life, or a vendor or employee in your business life, or selecting a school or tutor for your children’s education, you’re forced to make choices in life. There are certainly some issues that are absolute deal-breakers – a too-dangerous location, an unaffordable product,...

    A SurveyUSA poll conducted Monday finds that only 35 percent of Missouri adults think Akin should stay in the Senate race, while 54 percent of Missourians think he should drop out. Akin has until 5:00 p.m. Tuesday to drop out of the race. SurveyUSA also asked respondents: "The candidate who made the comments, Todd Akin, now says that he mis-spoke. Do you think he mis-spoke?" Only 32 percent say that Akin misspoke, while 52 percent say he did not.

    Akin said he has no plans to withdraw.“I don’t know that I’m the only person in public office who’s suffered from foot-in-mouth disease here, and this was a very, very serious error. On the other hand, there are so many good people in Missouri who nominated me, and they understood my heart,” Akin said.... Akin said no Republicans have called him and asked him to withdraw from the race.“No one has called me and said, ‘Todd, I think you should drop out,’” Akin said. “No one has said that. But I gather people are saying that in the media, but they didn’t specifically call...

    On Sunday, United States of America House of Representatives, Todd Akin, (R/MO), while during an interview via KTVI in St. Louis, MO, said some words that NOT ONLY GOT ME SHOCKED AND ANGRY, but also shocked and upset a number of GOP/Republican candidates running for public office, both women and men on the issue of “rape“. The offensive part of the interview came in these words: “It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Mr. Akin said. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that...

    President Obama weighed in on the national storm surrounding by Rep. Todd Akin, calling his comments "offensive." "The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape," Obama said in a surprise appearance at the White House briefing. "And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we're talking about doesn't make sense to the American people. And certainly doesn't make sense to me," Obama said.
