Too bad Barack Obama didnt spend less time in Chicago with Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn and more with typical South Side homeys. The future president of the worlds most powerful nation might have learned about real- world diplomacy.
For a few days there it appeared that if a resident of Indiana had chosen to refrain from commerce with another person and was sued for discrimination, this resident could have found legal recourse to defend himself against the suit.
Ted Cruz-Derangement-Syndrome went viral in the media this week.
As usual, what many racists! and haters! (i.e. normal Americans) suspected about Ferguson from the get-go proved true. Michael Brown was a serial thug, thief and a dope-fiend who rather than meekly surrender-- attacked his would-be captor in a manner (though not context) that would have gladdened the heart of George Patton.
If only the Republican Senators had followed up their letter to the terror-sponsoring Iranian officials this week with a visit and a handshake!
Unlike so many of his skits in the U.S., however, OBriens humor in Cuba was never at the expense of politicians.
Along with an estimated 637,000 people from the U.S. recently, Paris Hilton and Conan OBrien somehow squeaked through the cracks of the diabolical U.S. blockade of Cuba for a visit to Havana. (Btw, in the 1950ws when Cuba was a U.S. tourist playground! an average 200,000 Americans visited Cuba annually.)
Che Guevaras daughter Aleida is in Canada this week whooping up president Obamas opening to the Stalinist regime her father co-founded, and saying hed certainly approve.
Brian Williams recently shocked many Americans with his disingenuous reporting. His claims of perilous combat coverage in Iraq and dramatic Hurricane Katrina coverage in New Orleans appear bogus.
From the New York Times to Newsweek and everyone in between the mainstream media seems horrified and outraged by the video-murders so gleefully and frequently perpetrated by the Islamic terror group ISIS.
The military hero as coward motif has a long tradition with Michael Moore. But his earlier oinkings in this regard--well before the release of American Sniper-- were aimed at much safer targets.
When a recently-freed political prisoner who was foreign and black (and a former communist terrorist by his own admission) visited the U.S. in 1990 to request economic and diplomatic sanctions against the segregationist government that jailed him the U.S. media and political establishment went absolutely bonkers with acclaim and adulation.
As usual with Obamas policies lets start with the lie: We've always made it clear that there's no equivalence between an international development worker imprisoned for more than four years for doing nothing more than helping Cuban citizens gain access to the Internet, and convicted Cuban intelligence agents."
There's no arguing that who the Republicans decide to elevate into a leadership position says a lot about what the conference's priorities and values are. (Obama White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest referring to the recent Steve Scalise/David Duke flap.)
Most of you quickly figured out how Obamas new amnesty plan creates more Democratic voters. Did you knew his new Cuba policy does too? To wit:
Now where have we previously heard Senator Rand Pauls clich-fest that constitutes his rebuttal to Senator Marco Rubio on Cuba sanctions?
Did you notice the timing of President Obamas economic lifeline to Castro as announced on December 17th under the guise of changing our relations with the people (emphasis mine) of Cuba?
Id just hung the deer by its neck on the swingset for skinning and butchering when..... "Oh Hum-BERTO! Puh-LEAZE!"
Former Mr Kate Perry (and current British multi-millionaire-comedian) Russell Brand devotes much of his new book and stage routine to denouncing capitalism. The book itself is titled Revolution and courageously confesses to the following: Im a big fan of Castro and Che Guevara and all their beret-wearing cigar, gun-totting, cigar-chuffing pals. They were sexy, cool, tough.
Castros agents had targeted Macys, Gimbels, Bloomingdales, and Manhattans Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT.
