  • Baltimore Violence is Obama’s Failed Legacy on Race

    As our first African-American president, Barack Obama had the opportunity to personify the final triumph of civil rights, and in the process, become a celebrated and historic figure. Instead, his ironic legacy on race is one of abject failure, as the rioting and looting in Baltimore underscore. The tragic reality is that Obama passed on the opportunity to the “post-racial” president he promised to be when he first ran in 2008. Instead, he farmed out leadership on racial issues to Al Sharpton, for whom grievance is like oxygen. The prejudgment of George Zimmerman, and related fury, set the stage...

    Since Politics Nation debuted on MSNBC on August 29, 2011, Al Sharpton’s nonprofit National Action Network has collected more than $2.38 million in contributions from unions, according to Department of Labor records. Meanwhile, Sharpton has often used his show to promote pro-labor viewpoints, also inviting union leadership on as guests. National Action Network ... has apparently remained in financial trouble. A 2013 filing with the Internal Revenue Service showed the nonprofit had ended the year with negative assets of $1.33 million. Nonprofit experts have told National Review that the Sharpton’s six-figure salary from National Action Network, as well as the...

    Now that the six Baltimore police officers have been charged with murder [by a prosecutor with numerous questions about her objectivity], the crowds are reacting with jubilation. People being interviewed on the street are saying that if these cops are not convicted in a trial that has not even been scheduled, it will be “just like Rodney King all over again.” [To review, the 1992 Los Angeles riots included looting and arson (resulting in over $1 billion in damages) as well as racially motivated assaults and murders (resulting in 53 deaths and untold numbers of maimings and injuries).] ` This...

    Vanity | 5/2/15 | George Smythe
    Remember when the media couldn't wait to post photos of Officer "Blond-Haired-Blue-Eyed-Whitey-Devil" Wilson, which, coupled with the now-debunked "Hands Up Don't Shoot" lie, was supposed to PROVE that the shooting was racially motivated? It worked. Ferguson burned, the citizens were terrorized, cops were murdered in retaliation, lives were destroyed (including that of the officer), while incendiary opportunists like Al Sharpton prospered off of stirring up chaos, misery and racial resentment. Obviously many people did not learn a single lesson from that, because the Baltimore case set off the same knee-jerk, bigoted response. We were to believe that this was...

    Today's predictable "Baltimore!

This week’s nightmare in Baltimore shows where this leads. It’s time for a new urban renewal, this time built on the ideas of private economic development, personal responsibility, “broken windows” policing, and education choice. All of which would lead sensible people -- those...

      It was surreal. Fox News reporter Leland Vittert was trying to get answers from Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and she was being shielded by race hustler Al Sharpton. Rawlings-Blake has been considered to be a rising political star in the democrat party. Then as Baltimore spiraled out of control, Rawlings-Blake found herself way over her head and she was unwilling to take the heat. As Rawlings-Blake headed for a speaking engagement for Sharpton's National Action Network , Sharpton promised that Rawlings-Blake would answer all Vittert's questions, but Rawlings-Blake ducked out the back door and dodged all questions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=287VGwjcmPoRawlings-Blake also...

    Near the end of 2007, Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett met with Al Sharpton in New York City and began to cement a relationship that would eventually make the inflammatory activist the president’s “go-to man” on race, according to multiple sources. The backdrop to the incipient Obama-Sharpton alliance was the then-senator’s 2008 presidential campaign, which still hadn’t locked away the black vote, and the political cross-currents created by two other controversial reverends, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright. That tentative relationship has now grown into a full-blown partnership that has vastly increased the once-shunned Sharpton’s influence and prestige and elevated him into...

    As Al Sharpton ran for mayor of New York City in 1997 and for president in 2003, fires at his offices reportedly destroyed critical financial records, and he subsequently failed to comply with tax and campaign filing requirements. The first fire began in the early hours of April 10, 1997, in a hair-and-nail salon one floor below Sharpton’s campaign headquarters at 70 West 125th Street. From the start, investigators deemed the fire “suspicious” because of “a heavy volume of fire on arrival” and because many of the doors remained unlocked after hours, according to the New York Fire Department’s fire-and-incident...

    Holder Frames Ferguson PD For Racism Using Bogus 'Disparate Impact' Stats 03/05/2015 Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder's race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson's police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD's vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report. He...

    “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” - Booker T. Washington (1865–1915) Ricky’s own Department of Justice has been forced to...

    Home is where the POTUS is: Al Sharpton returns to White House 'for his 73RD visit' with Obama to discuss problems facing minorities Reverend Al Sharpton apparently cannot get enough of the White House. The prominent civil rights leader and MSNBC talk show host was invited Thursday to a meeting with President Obama and other African-American activists, making it his 73rd visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue since 2009, according to some estimates. In a press release sent out ahead of the summit, White House officials described the occasion as an 'opportunity to have a dialogue with the leaders about the...

    Robert De Niro owed $6.4 million to the IRS for his 2013 tax return, but it appears he just learned of it. The Oscar winner's tax debt surfaced in documents first uncovered by the Smoking Gun. Mr. De Niro has an estimated worth of over $200 million, and is reputed to spend $125,000 a month on his rental on Central Park West. In that sense, this tax bill doesn't seem so large. But it was unpaid, as the notice to New York City’s Department of Finance revealed. That is what an IRS lien filing is all about. But right away,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Wednesday on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” in discussing this week’s Justice Department announcement that there is not sufficient evidence to charge George Zimmerman with intentionally violating the civil rights of Trayvon Martin during the 2012 confrontation that tragically resulted in the shooting death of Martin, Al Sharpton said he is now planning to work to “lower the threshold” that legally qualifies who is prosecuted for a federal hate crime. Sharpton explained, “The intent to prove that Zimmerman did it because of his race, that is the legal threshold,” adding, ” Unless we change that legislation, we end up...
