Ex-CBS Reporter’s Book Reveals How Liberal Media Protects Obama

51db9heujtl-_sl500_aa300_

That rare commodity these days, a real reporter.

Via NY Post:

Sharyl Attkisson is an unreasonable woman. Important people have told her so.

When the longtime CBS reporter asked for details about reinforcements sent to the Benghazi compound during the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack, White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor replied, “I give up, Sharyl . . . I’ll work with more reasonable folks that follow up, I guess.”

Another White House flack, Eric Schultz, didn’t like being pressed for answers about the Fast and Furious scandal in which American agents directed guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords. “Goddammit, Sharyl!” he screamed at her. “The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!”

Two of her former bosses, CBS Evening News executive producers Jim Murphy and Rick Kaplan, called her a “pit bull.”

That was when Sharyl was being nice.

Now that she’s no longer on the CBS payroll, this pit bull is off the leash and tearing flesh off the behinds of senior media and government officials. In her new memoir/exposé “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington” (Harper), Attkisson unloads on her colleagues in big-time TV news for their cowardice and cheerleading for the Obama administration while unmasking the corruption, misdirection and outright lying of today’s Washington political machine.

Charles Barkley: “Unintelligent Blacks” “Brainwashed” To Keep Successful Black Men Down

I always liked Charles. Growing up and going to school in the inner city, as I did, you get to see first hand how bad it really is. The loss of the black family unit has created huge challenges.

Via The Daily Caller:


NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley spoke candidly about the problems facing the black community when appearing on a Philadelphia radio station, accusing “unintelligent,” “brainwashed” African-Americans of keeping successful ones down.

While appearing on “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis,” Barkley was asked about a rumor that Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was getting criticism from his black teammates for not being, quote, “black enough.”

Barkley went on a long monologue on the subject: ”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”

Nurse Held In Ebola Quarantine In New Jersey Throws A Hissy Fit In Writing…Update: Her Article Fails To Note She Is CDC Employee

Screen Shot 2014-10-25 at 4.02.02 PM

Seldom have I ever seen a medical ‘professional’ so self-concerned, so lacking in basic human concern for the possibility of carrying a pandemic to millions. Sorry, dear, above all, DO NO HARM!

Written by Nurse Kaci Hickox, via Dallas News:

I am a nurse who has just returned to the U.S. after working with Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone – an Ebola-affected country. I have been quarantined in New Jersey. This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me.

I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganization, fear and, most frightening, quarantine.

Keep reading…

Update:

Our reader, Azgirl, examined certain words in Kaci Hickox’s 874-word screed.

How many times did she refer to herself? How many times did she refer to America or the U.S or our country, public safety, citizens, or the welfare of 312 million Americans?

I: 43
me: 11
U.S.: 2 (she returned to the U.S.; the U.S. must stop treating people like her so unfairly)
America: 1 (in reference to her returning home)
United States: 0
citizens: 0
safety: 0
welfare: 0

Reader Blue Sky also notes something rather interesting. Kaci Hickox is not a present employee of Doctor’s Without Borders, as the short introductory bio in the article might have suggested.

Kaci Hickox, a nurse with degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington and the Johns Hopkins University, has been caring for Ebola patients while on assignment with Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone.

But she is actually a CDC employee, you know the CDC who, along with President Obama, has been fighting the concept of travel bans and quarantines on travelers from Ebola-affected countries.

She is currently an “Epidemic Intelligence Services Fellow” whose responsibilities include:

applied epidemiology, biostatistics, public health surveillance, scientific writing, and working with the media, as well as emerging public health issues.

Funny how this was not stated in the article…

Update

Hickox’s article was updated since our piece to include that that she worked as a ‘disease detective’ with CDC employee (although it still fails to note her involvement in advocacy and media relations). They may have picked up on our article.

The Rev. Al Sharpton delivered a rousing call Friday to dream the dream of activism to a young generation of African-Americans he said has given up even trying.

“It was bad enough when we were held back,” Sharpton told a crowd of some 650 Benedict College graduates at a homecoming banquet at the Doubletree Hilton at Bush River Road and I-20. “It’s worse when we have adjusted to it.”

Sharpton’s 30-minute keynote speech hit on civil rights themes of self-reliance, restiveness and inclusiveness. He did not call out any South Carolina officials but noted the pattern of voter ID laws that he said became a fabricated issue only after the election of President Obama.

Atheist Group To Distribute To Florida Schools: Pamphlets With Cartoon Bible Sexually Attacking Women

60EEA6F117C348209177D86B2BD8BF42

No religious groups would be able to distribute their literature, but religiously anti-religious groups are free to have at it…

Via Breitbart:

An atheist group is planning to distribute a pamphlet in several Florida public high schools that depicts an illustration of a cartoon Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

According to a report by Brittany Hughes at CNSNews.com, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) plans to hand out a pamphlet entitled “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible,” with a front cover that is illustrated with an animated Bible with arms, legs, salacious facial expression, and salivating mouth, with its hand aggressively extended up the dress of a screaming woman, who is attempting to run away from it.

Sikh Student To Carry A Ceremonial Dagger At School

Liberals have zero sense. I wonder if this student could bring the “ceremonial dagger” to the airport when traveling?

Via Truth Revolt:

“The knife can’t come out. It can’t be shown around. It needs to be underneath their clothing,” Auburn Assistant Superintendent Ryan Foster told a local television station. “That allows them to express their religion without jeopardizing anyone’s feeling of safety. If there are any problems, we will take it to the family, but we don’t expect any.”

Parents, though, aren’t happy. One said she would quit volunteering at the school; another said “They can’t take that thing into the airport. … Why is a school any different?”

Study Shows Large Numbers Of Illegally Voting Non-Citizens May Determine Close Elections

606x404-78aba759b695ee8cc657ec3e664f136c

Best comment from Iowahawkblog: 12 million adult non-citizens in US. If 6.4% voted in 08 = 770k illegal votes. But remember ‘vote fraud is a myth.’

Via PJ Media:

A massive study of 2 recent elections reveals that hundreds of thousands of votes were cast illegally by “non-citizens.” And while it is not possible to say with any certainty that the illegal votes cost Republicans elections, the evidence strongly suggests that at least one Senate race was decided by the illegal votes.

The study appears in the journal of Electoral Studies and looked at 32,800 votes in 2008 and 55,400 votes in 2010.

Washington Post:

Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.

How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

American Psycho: Moses Was Schizo

american_psycho

Is it me or do Hollywood types like Christian Bale, best known for his role in Batman and American Psycho, not like Christianity or Judaism?

Can you imagine for a moment if any of the figures of Islam were called names by an actor in a movie about their religion? Heads would roll – literally. Isn’t this what the left calls hate speech? It’s selective free speech by an industry bent on bad movies.

If you have a wallet, fanny pack, purse, man purse, don’t use it to purchase tickets to watch this. If you want to learn about Moses, open a Bible or ask a priest or ask a pastor.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life,” Bale said about Moses in front of a group of international reporters last month at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles.

…Film critic Peter Chattaway at Christian site Patheos.com, for example, seems troubled because Bale “speculates about what was going on inside Moses’ head.” He’s also bothered because director Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly that it’s not Moses or God who will part the Red Sea, but that it will be caused by an earthquake.

Fighting Ebola, Street By Street, In Liberia

We posted an earlier story about an self-concerned American nurse throwing a hissy fit for being held in quarantine in New Jersey because she had come from treating Ebola patients, and she had a fever.

Counterpoint. Here is a riveting story of a true hero, doing what he can in an ever-growing epidemic in Liberia. We are paying attention to Ebola because it has hit our shores, but he and others have been dealing with it since March, lacking doctors and facilities. He consciously chooses to live away from his family and to live by himself so that he doesn’t risk exposing them. He deals every day with violently ill Ebola patients and knows if he ever even makes one mistake, it might be his last.

The World Health Organization says the number of people believed sickened by Ebola has risen above 10,000. Of those, 4,922 people have died. Those numbers are likely an underestimate, according to WHO. It has particularly affected Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, but there have also been cases in three other West African countries, Spain and the United States. Mali recorded its first case of Ebola Thursday.

Democratic Long Island DA Was Scheduled To Appear With Unindicted Conspirator In WTC Bombing

What, no Communist too? She backed out when called on it. But next question, what questions must we ask about this Long Island mosque who invited this man?

Via Observer.com:

On November 23, 2014, the Islamic Center of Long Island is hosting its annual fundraiser at the Garden City Hotel in Garden City, New York. Under the topic: “Islam in America: Roots & Beyond,” there are a few high-profile speakers who will be helping to raise money.

Among the speakers is Kathleen Rice, who is currently the Nassau County District attorney, and is a Long Island Congressional candidate.

As one of the three co-chairs of the Moreland Commission, Ms. Rice is coming under heavy fire from opponent Bruce Blakeman for failing to reveal her role in that committee’s mysteriously disbanding. And she’s had a rough week, as a ruling came down that her office has been temporarily banned from obtaining recorded jailhouse conversations between inmates and their lawyers.

Obama Admin Freed Illegal Immigrants With Violent Crime Convictions

Border is open, guys, come on in!

Via Newsmax:

Illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes and serious felonies were among the hundreds of criminals the Obama administration released from jails across the country in February 2013, newly released documents show.

According to records obtained by USA Today, the government released inmates charged with offenses ranging from kidnapping and sexual assault to drug trafficking, armed assault, and homicide.

The evidence contradicts previous assurances by the administration that the 617 criminals who were released as part of a cost-cutting exercise were low-risk offenders charged with misdemeanors “or other criminals whose prior conviction did not pose a violent threat to public safety,” USA Today reported.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted to the newspaper that numerous dangerous criminals had been released but denied direct responsibility.

The Nation: Muslims Have Been Targeted By Bigots

Not surprisingly. The Nation is praising a sixth-century mentality using 20th century political strategy. Bill Maher can be a douche, but he finally sees that there is a big difference between Islam and other religions – that is news and not bigotry. The easiest thing to understand is women are not property. But, saying so makes you a red neck bigot. Oh well.

Via The Nation:

Since 9/11, Muslim-Americans have struggled to overcome the suspicions of their non-Muslim neighbors. These doubts have often manifested themselves in outright discrimination, and Muslims have been targeted by bigots in hate crimes across the country. In my own hometown in southern West Virginia, the mosque has been repeatedly vandalized, and local students report being subjected to routine racist bullying from their peers, as I reported for Al Jazeera America earlier this year.

Michael Brown Family Brawls Over Merchandising Options

mikebrown

Classy family.

Via TPNN:

Michael Brown’s family has gone on record saying that they did not want him to be used for business or political gain. However, they openly welcomed the politicization of the Brown shooting by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, activist Attorney General Eric Holder and community agitating president Barack Obama.

When it comes to business profiting off of Michael Brown’s name, it appears that they have no problem with selling Michael Brown merchandise themselves.

Actually, there was a slight problem with members of Michael Brown’s family appearing to jockey for position of being the top Michael Brown retailer.

On Saturday, October 18, a disturbing altercation between Brown’s mother, Leslie McSpadden, grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, cousin, Tony Petty and other supporters led to one ending up in the hospital after being beaten by a metal object and Michael Brown t-shirts, as well as $1,400 being stolen by one of the family members.

Canada Has Been A Safe Haven For Extremism

canadian-flag-570

The truth hurts. Being politically correct enables bad people to do bad things.

Via VICE News:

Canada has been long seen as a safe haven for extremism; a mix of liberal immigration policies and a belief in an inclusive society have made it the perfect place for planning and plotting, as evidenced by the string of attacks planned or carried out in Canada. Unfortunately we also have a rocky history of giving citizenship to militants from abroad. It’s well-known that Toronto-born Omar Khadr — the last Western citizen to be held by the US at Guantanamo Bay — came from a family known for their connections to Osama bin Ladenand had alleged connections to al Qaeda…

The fact is, terrorist attacks have long been a threat in Canada. But now, with more active engagement in the Middle East, and an atmosphere in which potential threats are perhaps more easily radicalized and instantly martyred on social media, potential actors in Canada now have even more reason to act out.
