Scientists Discover "Habitable Planet" Outside Solar System

A new planet discovered by University of California scientists, Gliese 667Cc, orbiting around a red dwarf star, 22 light years away from the earth is said to be a habitable and may help to answer if humans are alone in the universe.

FOX's Baier Makes Dems Top Poodle Wasserman-Schultz Squirm About No Budget

FOX News' Bret Baier (incredibly) had DNC Chair and perennial liar Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on his show last night and he backed her into a corner when she yet again tried to blame the Republicans for a budget that hasn't been passed in three years while the Dems have controlled Congress during that time.

DWS claims that Obama has a budget and she’s blaming the House for not passing it, however the Senate won’t touch Obama’s budget with a ten foot pole, nor have they passed a budget in over three years. But somehow the Democrat-lead Senate escapes criticism from dishonest Debbie who wants to simply play partisan games and blame Republicans. The Republicans passed a budget in the House but the Senate refuses to take that one up as well.

More Mob "Justice"

A man in Mobile, Alabama was beaten within an inch of his life by a mob of 20 or so black adults for "fussing" at kids playing street basketball.  He now lies in a hospital bed with "bleeding on his brain."  There was at least one suspect who was heard to say, "Now that's justice for Trayvon," in clear reference to the Trayvon Martin shooting.

The countdown is on for the mainstream media, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson (as well as their Black Panther hit squad) to denounce this crime and bring it to the attention of America.  They had absolutely no problem in rushing to judgment when they inaccurately blamed Sarah Palin and "violent right-wing rhetoric" for the shooting of Arizona Representative Gabriel Giffords.  Now that Sharpton has the masses all worked up, looking for blood with his hate speech, where are the damn admonishments and cries for apologies from him!

Does He Have the Guts?

I've often asked would all these leftists that indiscriminately and willfully attack Christianity have the same testicular fortitude to do the same with Islam?  I don't think so and history bares that out.  Media Research Center founder, Brent Bozell dared Daily Show host Jon Stewart to do just that.  Personally, I think Bill Maher should be the first to be put to that litmus test.  Then Janine Garafalo, Rosanne Barr and any and all pseudo-heroes of the phony left-wing celebrity world. 

Bob Beckel Drops F-Bomb on Live TV, Blames Host

Not only did it take prodding by Sean Hannity to apologize for the vulgar and reckless comment (not to mention that it was in fact Beckel who doesn't know what he's talking about-and very often at that-about Head Start spending) but he typically showed the left-wing way of doing things.  Don't admit fault, just blame someone else.

Left Wing Double Standard...Infinity

So last weekend rocker and second amendment advocate Ted Nugent said controversial comments regarding president Obama, stating if President Obama is reelected, "I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
Should he have said it?  No.  Is he a little nuts?  Well, yeah.  After all he is The Nuge. Should he have been "allowed" to say it.  Why not?  I'm a believer in the First Amendment, so say whatever you want, even if does piss someone off or tears their paper-thin sensibilities.  As long as their is no double-standard with who reports it, demanding an appology from the right and nothing from the left like the left-wing media is predictably now doing.

Let's start with the old news, but still factual account that the MSM simply and willfully refused to acknowledge and report the disgusting, misogynistic comments of Bill Maher on Sarah palin and Michelle Bachmann.  But now that Nugent, a conservative, has made seemingly disparaging and potentially dangerous comments regarding the Democrat president of the United States, NBC's Andrew Mitchell took the opportunity to make a case of it.
To his credit, George Stephanopoulos took the question to the round-table on ABC This Week. The Secret Service has already confirmed they will be knocking on Nugent's door.  That is, after they explain their own little alleged escapades.  So, they and only they will decide if any charges will be laid.  Want to bet they won't?  Eric Holder might all of a sudden discover there's a crime in there somewhere (and maybe there is) after ignoring the Black Panthers.  The Democrats will jump all over this in yet another and on-going sense of inflated elitism and moral compass pointed in the direction of do what we say, not what we do in an attempt to characterize the right as violent and a threat to not only the president, but to liberty.  Something they and their media acolytes know something about.

100 Years Ago Today

It's hard to believe that 1oo years ago today (and as of this writing, about two hours to the hour) that the once thought-of "unsinkable"RMS steam liner Titanic hit an iceberg in the still, freezing waters of the North Atlantic and within two hours, slipped beneath the waves after tearing in two, taking with her 1,514 souls. Only 710 survivors that either were lowered onto the collapsible lifeboats from the ship's deck, or picked up from the water after the sinking.

I, like a lot of people, have been pretty avidly interested in the Titanic and all her stories all my life, whether they be myths or not. Everything from the unimaginable horror, to the bravery, chivalry, myths and human arrogance of the tragedy. It wasn't really until Robert Ballard's discovery of the wreck in 1985 that made it real for everyone. Although documented history let us know the the "greatest" marine disaster ever did happen, it had that romanticized myth about it that almost put it in mind of Greek mythology. I think the discovery of the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic 400 miles off the coast of Newfoundland finally made it real for everyone that had heard about it throughout their lives, other than the survivors and those like Ballard that made it their life work to find the famed, doomed vessel.
"The first reaction was celebration, we all jumped up shouting because we were near the end of the expedition and we thought we were going to fail," Ballard said when he and his crew saw the image of a boiler in the sand 12,000 feet beneath the surface signaled the discovery of the Titanic. "But that was followed quickly by a realization of where we were, that we were on a gravesite. We started seeing where the bodies had landed, that this was a cemetery, and it changed our emotional wall. It went from pure joy to thoughtful reflection."

There have been a plethora of books written on the subject and there will continue to be hundreds more written in the coming years. But I think, because of this milestone anniversary, the fascination of the tragedy will never be as high as it is right now. Mine started when I read one of the first written in the modern age, A Night to Remember by Walter Lord. I couldn't put it down and have been engrossed by the subject ever since. The tales of bravery and sadness as well as the the mysteries of exactly how and why the ship was destined to flounder has always kept me on the lookout for almost anything to do with the ship and her stories. I have read almost anything I can get my hands on and have seen countless documentaries. Last summer I went to the Titanic artifact exhibit, complete with mock passenger ticket and short biography of an actual passenger. At the end of the exhibit you wen to a big list and checked to see if the person you had the name of survived or not. Mine didn't. He was third-class male and like most steerage passengers, he didn't have much of a chance.
Most people tend to forget that this horrific event actually happened and happened to real people that suffered the greatest horror that even the best Hollywood writers couldn't imagine. But one story of the Titanic wasn't about the Titanic at all. It was called Wreck of the Titan (aka Futility) by Morgan Robertson and it was a work of fiction about an unsinkable ship that didn't have enough lifeboats for everyone on board, hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage in the North Atlantic in the month of April. It was published in 1898. That means it predated even the designing of the Titanic by about 12 years. Creepy. The similarities are down right eerie. I mean this has to be the preeminent tale of
coincidence in the history of history.
As mentioned, there are countless books and documentaries about the Titanic. Here is a short one found on YouTube with footage and survivor interviews.

There are many more videos on YouTube about the Titanic, its survivors and their tales. You can just go the the YouTube website and check them out.

Director James Cameron who gave us probably the best description of what happened to the Titanic both in how the ship hit the iceberg and what detailed damage it did to cause it to sink with an animation that was seen in his 1997 feature film, Titanic, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. But even though it shows the best re-enactment anybody has given the general public to date, a recent documentary he hosted with Titanic experts of the last 20 or so years shows, as Cameron readily admits on air, that there were mistakes made in that animation and he would correct them. However, Cameron stated he would not "fix" the film with the updated information since he is still quite happy with the final product.

The disaster reached far and wide and touched people in seemingly every country and language. This is a memorial plaque in my hometown of Winnipeg that is dedicated to those form here that were lost.

For a sample of the numerous stories permeating the internet this week, I have linked a few of them for your viewing.

In Another Low Profile Case...

With all the attention on the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin, the media has barely reported on former Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards case of alleged illegal campaign finance contributions.

He faces six counts related to nearly $1 million in secret payments from two campaign donors used to help hide the his pregnant mistress's existence and the affair he carried on with her that produced a child out of wedlock while his now late wife was battling cancer.

Not that the Zimmerman case has any bearing on Edwards' case whatsoever, but you can bet Edwards is glad there will be hardly any light shed on his trial. Don't expect the MSM to go above and beyond to cover the trial of one of their favorite sons.

ABC Perpetuates Another Obama Fallacy

I'm no fan of Mitt Romney to be sure, but I'm even less of one to the MSM that keeps filling the pool full of sand so Obama can continue to walk on water, but also adheres to the Dan Rather school of journalism of "fake but accurate" that will continue to argue in the favor of anything that helps to keep a Republican out of the White House.

Tonight was such an transparent case of it on ABC World News that Rather himself would have been beaming with pride.

Zimmerman Charged with Second Degree Murder

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Zimmerman Family Asks Holder: "Why No Arrests of Black Panthers for Hate Crimes?"

I must say I agree.

With a bounty put on the head of George Zimmerman by the militant hate group, the New Black Panther Party, why isn't Attorney General Eric Holder issuing arrest warrants on them for hate crimes?

How Whites Took Over America

A new way to look at history perhaps? Regardless, it's pretty funny.

I guess it sucks for the left when their ideology and talking points smack them in the face.

Votergate: Attorney General Holder's Voting Ballot Offered to Anonymous Man

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas strikes again as caught on video sting contradicts Attorney General Eric Holder's proclamation that voter fraud "manufactured."

In stark contrast to this...
Holder's DOJ: Evidence of Voter Fraud 'Manufactured'

Yet another (or should I say once more) [of] Obama's appointees display a vast proficiency of incompetence.
Again, these are the people you want running your government?

Mark Steyn: The Left's Stupefyingly Intolerant Conformity Enforcers

Via The Daily Caller,

Mark Steyn says his peace about the left's mantra of freedom of thought. "Think and say whatever you long as it's the same as ours, among the left's version of economics, big government love and the like.

Racial Justice

In a recent legislative debacle that now takes into consideration one's ethnic background, aboriginals in Canada now face severely reduced sentences when convicted of a crime, whether they have a long criminal record history or not.

Who says the justice system isn't blind? It just also happens to be deaf and dumb. Expect a major backlash on this one folks.

The Left's "Race-Gate" Tradition Soldiers On

Even in the light of NBC's exposure of editing George Zimmerman's call to 9-1-1 dispatcher's (and MSNBC's constant editing of conservative voices) the mainstream media go unabated as usual in attempting to frame anyone even remotely involved in any incident with a person of non-color as a violent racist. We saw it with the Duke lacrosse team, Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush and so on. Now it's Zimmerman's turn.

The phrase "Editgate" established itself virtually overnight. It fit so well. This useful compound merges "edit," in reference to NBC's incendiary editing of George Zimmerman's 911 call, and "gate," the catch-all suffix used to describe a corrupt mess of deception and obfuscation. Already "Editgate" is being used more expansively to include other distortions in the Trayvon Martin case, including ABC's compression of the police videotape to obscure Zimmerman's head wound and CNN's absurdly imaginative translation of the Zimmerman word "cold" into the nearly archaic "coons."

Together, these three deceptions -- and there will be more -- have established Editgate as the most consequential high-level fraud in the left's long history of what might be called "race-gating." By this, I mean the purposeful media corruption of a racially oriented story.

The media's willingness to lie for the cause should shock no one to the right of Bill Ayers. What is particularly troubling about Editgate is that the major media, which once served as a firewall against fraud, now seem eager accomplices in its commission.

"Spittlegate" is a case in point. In March 2010, the media conspired with the Congressional Black Caucus to portray a group of well-behaved Tea Partiers protesting ObamaCare as a veritable lynch mob.

To be sure, the alternative media deconstructed the incident to show that no one had used a racial slur as charged, let alone spit on a congressman. No matter. The mainstream media let the original story -- "Tea Party Protestors Scream 'Nigger' at Congressman" -- stand as reported. As a result, the racial wound the media opened has continued to fester.

True to the "Gate" legacy, there has been little hint of apology in the "clarifications" the Editgate networks have offered. ABC, for instance, finally did produce an enhanced video to show Zimmerman's two head wounds, but, incredibly, it headlined that story, "George Zimmerman Video Shows Little Evidence of a Broken Nose, Doctor Claims."

After cleaning up the audio of the 911 call, CNN's Gary Tuchman now only concedes, "It does sound less like that racial slur." In fact, it sounds nothing like a racial slur, and it never did. One hears a long "o" sound as in "cold" -- it was raining and 63 degrees -- not an "oo" sound.

Although the level of media complicity is unprecedented, the style of attack is nearly a century old. The left's first major exploitation of a criminal case can be traced to about 1925, when the newly ascendant Josef Stalin directed his international propaganda arm, the Comintern, to discredit the idea of the American dream.

The Comintern found its poster boys in convicted murderers Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, both foreign-born Italians. The two had been arrested for robbery and murder in 1920 and tried before the jurors even knew that they were radicals. As the appeals process dragged on, the Comintern directed its various front groups to fabricate new facts and create a worldwide myth around the pair's presumed innocence. Almost immediately, "spontaneous" protests sprang up throughout Europe.

Rather than dictating media response, the Comintern preferred to create theater and allow the actors to find their way to the parts. The casting call for the Sacco and Vanzetti protests attracted a who's-who of literary leading lights. Prominent American authors Upton Sinclair, Katherine Ann Porter, John Dos Passos, and Edna St. Vincent Millay not only protested the seeming injustice, but also created literary works around it.

Each of the progressive authors who wrote about the Sacco and Vanzetti case began his or her work with the a priori assumption that the pair was innocent and, as today, ignored all evidence that contradicted that thesis.

As the August 1927 execution date approached, the Comintern whipped up rallies and riots. On the night of the execution, August 22, an outpouring of rage and grief swept the world and left common sense buried in its wake. The French Communist daily Humanité published an extra edition with one word on the front cover: Assassinés.

As the final hours ticked down, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Katherine Ann Porter stood vigil with other artists and writers in Boston. Ever the innocent liberal, Porter approached her group leader, a "fanatical little woman" and a dogmatic Communist, and expressed her hope that Sacco and Vanzetti could still be saved. The response of this female comrade is noteworthy for its candor:

"Saved," she said, ringing a change on her favorite answer to political illiteracy, "who wants them saved? What earthly good would they do us alive?"

Sacco and Vanzetti were the first in a long line of ethnics whose exploitability interested the left more than their innocence. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Leonard Peltier, Geronimo Pratt, and Mumia Abu-Jamal, like Sacco and Vanzetti, were all convicted of their crimes, but the evidence mattered little to those who wanted to spank America before the world.

With the passing of the Comintern, America's homegrown radicals picked up the playbook and directed their own game plans. Thinking anti-racism a more viable strategy than revolution, they expanded the definition of racism to include more behaviors against more groups, requiring more and more invasive remedies. Among those remedies, as George Zimmerman has learned the hard way, is that old Stalinist standby, "ritual defamation."

To be sure, there is a curious selectivity about who gets defamed. On March 15, 2012, just a few days before the story of Trayvon Martin's killing in Florida became a national sensation, Jose Carranza, 32, was quietly sentenced to 155 years in prison for brutally executing three innocent black college students in a Newark, New Jersey playground.

Like George Zimmerman, Carranza is of Peruvian descent. Ironically, what protected Carranza was the fact that he was "undocumented." The headline "Illegal Alien Kills Black Innocents" appealed to no one in the Media-Democrat complex. In the leftist narrative, one that Stalin himself could have written, illegals are victims of America, not the villains.

Twenty years prior, the decision-makers in that complex had even less use for a headline that read, "Clinton Tank Attack on Religious Community Kills 26 Blacks, 13 Other Minorities." So they fully suppressed the race angle. I doubt if even Al Sharpton knows that most of those killed at Waco were minorities.

In 2007, Syracuse University commemorated the eightieth anniversary of the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti as a way of highlighting, in its own words, "not only the creative response to the perceived injustice of the prosecution and sentence, but also the decades of continuing protest over what Katherine Anne Porter described as 'the never-ending wrong.'"

No matter what the evidence says about George Zimmerman, in the minds of the faithful, his exoneration will remain a "never-ending wrong." And this time, the "wronged" will not satisfy themselves with attending exhibits at Syracuse University.

Stop the Intimidation

This has been said countless times by the right and has been backed up by history even more. The left in all their demagoguery and narcissism have very successfully smeared the right with media-assisted character assassinations and accusations of racsim, bigotry, misogyny and whatever else they can get away with through the prism of intimidation.

Once again a proof-positive article by a conservative tells us the many tribulations and self-defense mode a right-winger is forced to endure due to the lefts lies, white-wash of history and total misrepresentation of the facts. History clearly bares this out. It's not as though the right has not made factual errors, but aplogies and clarificatuions to a fault that follow those mistakes are also represented by history. Barely, if at all, does the left sucumb to such honesty and self-reflection.

In this column by Steve McCann, we once again look at the infallible, deluded self-righteous conduct of the left and especially that of their current and deeply narcissistic and thin-skinned leader, President Barack Obama.

And once again, although this column is filled with obvious and historically accurate points that can easily and individually researched, the point of McCann's piece is evident: nothing will change until the right takes a stand. Not just in the short-term, as it appears it is doing with the new media's Andrew Brietbart School of Citizen Journalism, but forever more to ensure a fair and balanced view of the people and times that shape our world. Even if it's just our little corner of it.

New Black Panther Party Set for Violent Race War

Where is president Obama and Eric Holder on this one?


Where's the media and their national crisis wall-to-wall coverage? You know they know it's going down. Maybe they don't care because they all agree with it. How else would you explain their silence? Just imagine for one moment if the KKK went on radio and advocated a national day of action against the black community calling for war? Don't play ignorant. We all know exactly what would happen.

Is there time to wait and see if their double-standard and non-action will lead to deaths? The media especially is already half responsible for black on white crimes in the shadow of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Mike Wallace Dead at 93

CBS news broadcast legend and 60 Minutes pioneer Mike Wallace died Saturday at the age of 93. I rarely agreed with Wallace's assumptions or conclusions on issues and I believe at times he had morality and credibility issues, but he was, along with Walter Cronkite, a pioneer in the news business.

Obama Welcome the True War on Women to the White House

President Barack Obama has welcomed the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Islamist organization whose Freedom and Justice Party won the largest number of seats in that country's parliamentary elections and which will probably win the Egyptian presidency as well, into the White House.

This is the same party, or organization if you will has already stated that if elected, Sharia Law, would guide all lawmaking in Egypt under the party's rule. As anyone knows Sharia Law is highly anti-Christian, anti-Jew, anti-liberty and freedom and heavily anti-woman. Ask any family in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq or Saudi Arabia who have lost a female family member (if not killing them themselves in the name of "honor.")

The fact that Obama would even allow these future enemies of America (diplomatic obligations not withstanding) into the White House shows his disrespect for the rights of women the world over. It looks like the "War on Women" is being comfortably hosted by the current President of the United States.

NBC Throws Edited Zimmerman Tape to the Wolves

NBC has fired the the producer responsible for the bogus edit job on the George Zimmerman 9-1-1 call. I doubt he or she (who shall remain nameless, because NBC refuses to identify the person) was the only one responsible for the obviously intentionally edited Zimmerman tape. He/she could be though. I mean maybe he/she was the only person to say, "Ah, not good enough. We need to make Zimmerman look like a guilty racist. Cut the dispatcher's actual question." But like it's been asked before, isn't Brian Williams the managing editor of NBC News? He had absolutely nothing to do with this? Somethings amiss here. Maybe they allowed a producer to retire that was going to retire anyway. Or maybe he was near the end of his contract and decided to take the heat for Williams. They don't say who it is, so hey why not, right?

"The people with direct knowledge of the firing characterized the misleading edit as a mistake, not a purposeful act."


Impatient for A Trial, Youths Attack 78 Year Old Man as Payback for Trayvon Martin

A pack of six "youths" attacks a 78-year-old man while he was returning from a gas mart, yelling "take him down," "Kill him' and "This is for Trayvon."

No wall-to-wall national news by the MSM?

And dig of the teens arrested, "also faces a felonious assault charge from an unrelated shooting...The teen allegedly shot Mark Bolling, 24, in the 600 block of Leonard Street in East Toledo on March 18."

And near the end of the story is a perfect example of a liberal being a conservative who hasn't been mugged yet,
At his home Monday, Mr. Watts said he has never allowed weapons inside and that when his four children were growing up, they were not allowed to play "cops and robbers, to kill the Indians."
During the Vietnam War, Mr. Watts, who served in the military from 1950 to 1961, refused to let his boys play GI Joes.
There would be no more killing, he said.
But now, Mr. Watts says he plans to buy a gun and obtain a permit to carry it.
"What happened to me … down here on the corner, that changed my perspective on humanity," Mr. Watts said.

Bashir Likens Obama to A Slave

I rarely get upset by comments from the clowns at BSNBC. I usually just post their moonbat antics and comments for a good laugh and to show their closet racism and brazen lies about conservatives and history. But once in a while the do make comments and allegations that make my blood boil. I guess I should laugh it off as usual considering the source, but this stuff just really is out of bounds.

"...they're [Republicans] happy to have him [Obama] involved in using his labor to build the White House [slavery] but for him to win an election and live in the White House? That's just not acceptable."

See what I mean about their ignorance of history? The Republican Party was formed by anti-slavery activists in 1854, the White House was built between 1792 and 1800. WTF Bashir? Get your shite together. Crack a book, dude.

So Bashir is actually the one comparing Obama to a slave. Then to say the tired old liberal meme (especially on BSNBC) that they fear or hate the black man in the White House.

And of course there's the lefts favorite new word...coded. That's "code" for black. That's "coded" racism. Remember that black city councilor in Detroit who thought racism was afoot because a white councilor used the term "black hole?" That's what I think of every time I hear the left talk about "coded" words and put on their Little Orphan Annie decoder rings and try to decipher plain, open, non-racist speech by the right.

I've said it many times before...unbelievable. I predict if it's not Ed Schultz, this Bashir punk will be the next to get his walking papers from NBC. Seriously, with this guy's unprofessional conduct and childishness. Race baitor rankings from BSNBC? We have a new solid number three behind Al Sharpton and Schultz.

MSNBC's Schultz Channels Sharpton in Call to "Take Out Right Wing Occupiers"

With help of BSNBC's Ed "Sgt." Schultz, Democrat Senator, Nina Turner called Republicans "occupiers of state houses and general assemblies" (I thought being an "occupier" was a good thing these days) in their lame attempt in continuing to distract voters from President Obama's many economic and Constitutional failures in what they continue to press on with as the so-called "War on Women."

The Ohio State Senator used certain inflammatory words that if a Republican had said it, well, you what would happen. Senator Turner decided to forget all about President Obama's phony call for civility and said women should "take out right wing occupiers and replace them with elected officials who believe in equality and justice for all."

Let the left-wing outrage begin.

Sharpton Threatens Florida Town if Zimmerman Not Arrested; Video Flashback of How to Manipulate Media

First off, how does one escalate peaceful civil disobedience? Isn't that in the same vein of "controlling" one's "destiny?" But escalating is exactly what the biggest racist on the planet, Al Sharpton has threatened to do with his form of social justice on a "small town in Florida." To use his race-baiting bully pulpit on his MSNBC show to be an advocate for violence while disguised as a concerned civil rights "leader" is one thing, but to "Crown Heights" Sanford, Florida (which he doesn't actually name, but we can safely assume is where he means) is vitriolic to say the least.

9/11 Co-Conspirators, KSM & Co. to be Tried in Military Court

After all the hoopla and haranguing by President Obama, U.S. Attorney Eric Holder and the mainstream media in their attempt to praise Obama and Holder for being "balanced" and "compassionate" in the attempt to persuade the American people to accept that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Walid Muhammad Salih Mubarak Bin 'Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi should be tried in civilian court, the case was finally referred to a military tribunal.

Long Live the Dream

Zo and the "Afro-Centrics"

More Violence from Occupy Oakland

Is it any wonder Democrats have quietly, but surely walked away from these cretins?

Alec Baldwin Shows His Famous Respect for Women Again

Well, at least it wasn't an airline stewardess or his own daughter. This time he decided to get misogynist, racist and fascist all in just a few tweets. I don't think Baldwin qualifies as a comedian, so what's his excuse going to be this time? Although...he doesn't have sponsors either, so I guess he gets a pass.

Thomas Honored by "Palestinians"

Disgraced American columnist and anti-Semite Helen Thomas was honored by the "Palestinians" for her anti-Israel stance.

The honor was not specified? I'm thinking a vile of Israeli children's blood.

Will the President and Media Lament This?

New Black Panther Party National Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz says God gave the New Black Panthers a "revelation" to put a bounty on the head of George Zimmerman. Forget for a second how racist, not to mention highly illegal it is for a infamous hate group to put a bounty on a private citizen, but doesn't this make Shabazz and the Panthers not only religious zealots, but isn't this what President Obama said he more or less abhors? Extremists who use God to justify their violent and subversive activities?

Something tells me he'll make an exception in this case. He and Eric Holder have already shown their allegiance for this group already.

Is Brian Williams to Blame for Edited Zimmerman Call?

Since 2004 Brian Williams has been, the managing editor of NBC News. NBC flagrantly edited George Zimmerman's 911 call to police to appear to make him look vehemently racist. As this item suggests, like Dan Rather, should Williams get the boot? Admittedly this is probably not as controversial as a newsman forging documents to change the outcome of a presidential election, but it does show the same disregard for the facts in which many people will believe and form their opinions around.

NBC Apologizes for Edit of Zimmerman 911 Call

"During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers," the network said.

Maybe NBC should also apologize to the late Andrew Breitbart for attacking his "error" in the Shirley Sherrod video. I know. They won't because it" "totally different" and "not racist." To that I say...really?

Lauer Interview of Palin Before Her Today Co-Host Gig

I don't even have to check in on the Huffington Post or Daily Kos (but I will) to know that their comment section is rife with Palin hating right about now. If you didn't know, she guest-hosted with Matt Lauer on NBC's Today on Tuesday. The interview started with Lauer asking Palin if Mitt Romney becomes the GOP nominee, "are you happy with that?" Palin answered "Anybody but Obama." Lauer then attempted to do what all MSM "journalists" do, get one conservative to attack another. He later called her a "polarizing figure," where as Obama was a post-racial transformer. Lauer also then tried to convince Palin (and get her to admit) that Romney doesn't have charisma and can't get the average American to think he's one of them. Perhaps a valid question, but again, Obama was the "harbinger of hope." And to throw in the misleading left-wing talking point of "the economy is getting better," Palin called Lauer on his cheer-leading and in correct English) "For whom? Maybe for those on Wall Street. Not for those millions still unemployed, not for those whose houses are under water..." And when Lauer tried to give Obama credit he never gave Bush (200, 000 jobs created-not a majority of which is private sector-manufacturing is looking better, the stock market is looking better, consumer confidence is up, etc) Palin informed him of the obvious that there is more unemployment under Obama than before he took office and the national debt is still astronomical.

Then Lauer laid his liberal cards on the table. "Why would I take that chance with another person in the White House?" Palin nailed it with simply, "Because things aren't getting better fast enough."

Later and she smacked down Lauer's left-wing question by typically insulting the former Alaska governor with his "question" of,
"When you were plucked from obscurity in 2008 you'd been Alaska's governor about two years. You didn't have any real experience on the national stage....Do you think, if Mitt Romney's the nominee, he should choose someone with more experience on the national battlefield than you had at the time?"

I don't know if being a United States governor qualifies as being "in obscurity," or that Lauer still doesn't want to admit Palin had more executive experience (with an 80% approval rating) than all of the other candidates in 2008 (including the current President and Vice-President and even her running mate) as she comments on in the transcript below.

She absolutely hit it out of the park with the exposing of the albeit obvious bias in mainstream television news like Today and hopefully informed and probably even shocked some moderate or middle-of-the-road Americans that maybe only get their information from the lib-fest that is the MSM. I'm sure she made some jaws drop as well as made some progressive heads explode. I'll take either.

"I would say it doesn't matter if that person has national level experience or not, they're going to get clobbered by the lamestream media, who does not like the conservative message." "it doesn't matter if that person has been a known commodity to the mainstream (lamestream) media or not. The GOP ticket, to tell you the truth, Matt, doesn't know what's coming. They don't know what's going to hit them in terms of double standards being applied to them and the positions that they hold, and the records that they are running on, from, you know, personal family issues to anything else. There will be that double standard applied no matter who it is."

Pat Buchanen: It's All About Race Now

Damn straight. Especially when the President of the United States goes along with the narrative.

If it had been a white teenager who was shot, and a 28-year-old black guy who shot him, the black guy would have been arrested.

So assert those demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

And they may be right.

Yet if Trayvon had been shot dead by a black neighborhood watch volunteer, Jesse Jackson would not have been in a pulpit in Sanford, Fla., howling that he had been "murdered and martyred."

Maxine Waters would not be screaming "hate crime."

Rep. Hank Johnson would not be raging that Trayvon had been "executed." And ex-Black Panther Bobby Rush would not have been wearing a hoodie in the well of the House.

Which tells you what this whipped-up hysteria is all about.

It is not about finding the truth about what happened that night in Sanford when Zimmerman followed Trayvon in his SUV, and the two wound up in a fight, with Trayvon dead.

It is about the exacerbation of and the exploitation of racial conflict.

And it is about an irreconcilable conflict of visions about what the real America is in the year 2012.

Zimmerman "profiled" Trayvon, we are told. And perhaps he did.

But why? What did George Zimmerman, self-styled protector of his gated community, see that night from the wheel of his SUV?

He saw a male. And males are 90 percent of prison inmates. He saw a stranger over 6 feet tall. And he saw a black man or youth with a hood over his head.

Why would this raise Zimmerman's antennae?

Perhaps because black males between 16 and 36, though only 2 to 3 percent of the population, are responsible for a third of all our crimes.

In some cities, 40 percent of all black males are in jail or prison, on probation or parole, or have criminal records. This is not a product of white racism but of prosecutions and convictions of criminal acts.

Had Zimmerman seen a black woman or older man in his neighborhood, he likely would never have tensed up or called in.

For all the abuse he has received, Geraldo Rivera had a point.

Whenever cable TV runs hidden-camera footage of a liquor or convenience store being held up and someone behind the counter being shot, the perp is often a black male wearing a hoodie.

Listening to the heated rhetoric coming from demonstrations around the country, from the Black Caucus and TV talkers -- about how America is a terrifying place for young black males to grow up in because of the constant danger from white vigilantes -- one wonders what country of the mind these people are living in.

The real America is a country where the black crime rate is seven times as high as the white rate. It is a country where white criminals choose black victims in 3 percent of their crimes, but black criminals choose white victims in 45 percent of their crimes.

Black journalists point to the racism manifest even in progressive cities, where cabs deliberately pass them by to pick up white folks down the block.

That this happens is undeniable. But, again, what is behind it?

As Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has written, from January to June 2008 in New York City, 83 percent of all identified gun assailants were black and 15 percent were Hispanics.

Together, blacks and Hispanics accounted for 98 percent of gun assaults.

Translated: If a cabdriver is going to be mugged or murdered in New York City by a fare, 49 times out of 50 his assailant or killer will be black or Hispanic.

Fernando Mateo of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers has told his drivers, "Profile your passengers" for your own protection. "The God's honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these guys are blacks and Hispanics."

Fernando Mateo is himself black and Hispanic.

To much of America's black leadership and its media auxiliaries, what happened in Sanford was, as Jesse put it, that an innocent kid was "shot down in cold blood by a vigilante."

Yet, from police reports, witness statements, and the father and friends of Zimmerman, another picture emerges.

Zimmerman followed Trayvon, confronted him, and was punched in the nose, knocked flat on his back and jumped on, getting his head pounded, when he pulled his gun and fired. That Trayvon's body was found face down, not face up, would tend to support this.

But, to Florida Congresswoman Federica Wilson, "this sweet young boy ... was hunted down like a dog, shot on the street, and his killer is still at large."

Some Sanford police believed Zimmerman; others did not.

But now that it is being investigated by a special prosecutor, the FBI, the Justice Department and a coming grand jury, what is the purpose of this venomous portrayal of George Zimmerman?

As yet convicted of no crime, he is being crucified in the arena of public opinion as a hate-crime monster and murderer.

Is this our idea of justice?

No. But if the purpose here is to turn this into a national black-white face-off, instead of a mutual search for truth and justice, it is succeeding marvelously well.

Zimmerman Case Retaliation Hate Crime?

Of course this item represents a hate crime. The question is, is it in retaliation for the death of Travyon Martin?

Or how about this news item? Did any of you see these items on CNN? Or on your local NBC, CBS or ABC affiliates?

It looks like people are starting to take Al Shapton's call to violence to heart once again. Crown Heights ring a bell?

Willful Race-Baiting by the MSM Continues to Go Unchecked

This is clearly another case of the left-wing media editing video and taking comments or audio out of context. MSNBC, NBC and CBS (so far) are all guilty of willful misinformation of the facts.

Do I really have to ask why the biggest racist on the planet, Al Sharpton is not only involved in this with his race-baiting past, character assassination and murder-inducing history, but is also allowed by his MSNBC bosses to be a public activist in this case?

Where is Eric Holder in all this? Isn't the bounty of a private citizen by the Black Panthers a hate crime? Aren't the racial-divisive words of legislative politicians influencing public opinion and in a sense obstruction of justice? (If the shooting indeed is a crime?)

Why is the media airing specials such as "Beyond Trayvon?" How come there is no specials on what a good boy George Zimmerman's family thinks he is? Do we even know the history of either people? Do we know either way if Martin was a person of good moral standing or, again, if this wasn't indeed a case of self-defense? Why is the media focusing squarely on the "victim?" What if George Zimmerman was indeed the real victim here? I don't know what happened. Neither does anyone of those people in the clip. Judging by the history of the Duke lacrosse team non-rape case, the rush to judgment by the MSM about a noose being hung on a tree and the plethora of ultra-violent black on white crimes that don't see the light of day every night on the evening news. When will the media stop playing favorites and just tell us the facts as they come out instead of their opinion and sob stories about cases that haven't even played out yet?

Piers Morgan, who's assumptions and/or conclusions I rarely agree with pretty much bears out the fact that a lot of people who think they know all there is to know about the Zimmerman case
have already convicted him.

Good on Morgan.

Coulter: MSM="Post-Racial Lynch Mob"

Even after the Duke lacrosse case, Texaco executives allegedly using the N-word in private meetings -- which turned out to be "St. Nicholas" -- the Tawana Brawley case, not to mention virtual hailstorms of racist graffiti and nooses materializing on college campuses, all of which invariably end up having been put there by the alleged victims, the Non-Fox Media (NFM) didn't even pause before conjuring a racist plot in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida last month.

Like Captain Ahab searching for the Great White Whale, the NFM is constantly on the hunt for proof of America as "Mississippi Burning."

Over St. Patrick's Day weekend, the month after Martin was killed, gangs in Chicago shot 10 people dead, including a 6-year-old girl, Aliyah Shell, who was sitting with her mother on their front porch.

One imagines MSNBC hosts heaving a sign of relief that little Aliyah was not shot by a white man, and was thus spared the horror of being a victim of racism.

As it happens, Trayvon Martin wasn't shot by a white man either, but by George Zimmerman, a mixed-race Hispanic who lives in a diverse (47 percent white) gated community and tutors black kids.

But Hispanic is close enough for the NFM. They're chasing the Great White Whale of racist America and don't have time to check to see if the whale is actually a guppy.

Since the cat leapt out of the bag on Zimmerman being Hispanic, the media have begun calling him a "white Hispanic."

Not being a race-obsessed liberal, I don't particularly care, but it's indisputable that Zimmerman is brown. I saw his face carved on the side of a Mayan temple in the Yucatan. Using his mother's maiden name, he would be admitted to the University of Michigan law school on a full scholarship.

Apart from that, pretty much all that is known with certainty is that Zimmerman called the police to report a suspicious character in his neighborhood, and shortly thereafter he shot and killed Martin.

On the basis of little else, the media conjured a Hollywood script: A "white" man was "stalking" a little black kid -- who could be Obama's son! -- confronted him, beat him senseless as the small black child screamed for help, and finally shot the kid dead, "just because he was black."

Two weeks of nonstop hysteria later, it turns out that every part of that gripping plot is based on nothing that could be called a reasonable assumption, much less a fact.

The NFM's theory of the case might be true, just as it might be true that the loud bang I just heard outside my door is Godzilla returning to terrorize Manhattan. I, like the NFM, have no facts supporting my theory.

(Although mine is more credible because Al Sharpton is not involved and none of my facts are provably false, such as the NFM's claim about Zimmerman being "white.")

First of all, there's no reason to believe Zimmerman followed Martin after the police told him not to, which is the linchpin of much excited reporting.

Zimmerman told the police, his friends and his lawyer that he walked back to his car after hanging up with the police and was waylaid by Martin. No witnesses have told the press otherwise.

We don't know if -- as the NFM has baldly asserted -- it was Martin yelling "Help!" during the struggle. Before the case became a nationwide sensation, the lead detective told the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel that the police had played all the 911 calls for Martin's father, and he said the voice crying "Help!" was not his son's.

(The father has subsequently retracted that.)

Before the shooting was even a twinkle in the eye of MSNBC, an eyewitness gave a detailed account to the local media, indicating that it was Martin who was on top of Zimmerman, pummeling him, as Zimmerman screamed "Help!"

The police report says Zimmerman's nose was bleeding and his back covered in grass stains when they arrived at the scene. His lawyer and friends say he was treated for a broken nose the next day.

There's no sense in arguing in public about such facts. The medical records exist or they do not.

Of course, the information contradicting the media's fantasy comes to us only in the form of witness statements and police reports appearing in the press, not as evidence in a formal criminal investigation.

It's hard to tell where the NFM's suppositions are coming from inasmuch as they simply report their version as hard fact. But all their evidence seems to come only from Martin's family and girlfriend. Can we start trying all criminal defendants based exclusively on the testimony of the victim's friends and relatives?

Among the reasons to be suspicious of the media as impartial judges of the evidence is that they keep showing us snapshots from Martin's childhood, rather than any recent photos.

Without doing research, the average person would think Martin was a slight 12-year-old whippersnapper at the time of the shooting, rather than a strapping 6-foot, 160-pound 17-year-old. Indeed, he was 3 inches taller than Zimmerman, according to the police report.

Why aren't they showing us Zimmerman's baby pictures? (And why didn't we get to see baby pictures of the Duke lacrosse players? I bet they were adorable.)

CNN ceaselessly reported the allegation that Zimmerman could be heard in the background of one 911 call using an archaic racial epithet. Before playing the tape, correspondent Gary Tuchman first announced what the slur was supposed to be ("f*****g coon").

There's nothing like suggesting the answer in advance to improve reliability! Police should try that in lineups.

Then the same network that couldn't find the Jeremiah Wright tapes for sale in a church lobby brought in "one of the best audio experts in the business" to enhance the tape -- take the bass away here, add volume there -- and played the 1.6-second loop again and again, just in case you were not suggestible enough the first time.

Still, all that can be heard on the enhanced tape is "cha-chu, cha-chu, cha-chu."

But Tuchman wrapped up this demonstration by saying, "You know, it sounds like this allegation could be accurate, but I wouldn't swear to it in court. That's what it sounds like to me."

To the small percentage of CNN's audience with triple-digit IQs, it was comedy gold. The only thing missing was Tipper Gore playing the audio backward to reveal satanic lyrics.

(Incidentally, the Nexis transcript of the indecipherable "cha-chu" sound reads: "ZIMMERMAN: F*****g coons, f*****g coons. F*****g coons. F*****g coons. F*****g coons." Except it doesn't use asterisks.)

All this may give you an inkling of why we rely on the criminal justice system to determine guilt in criminal cases and not the fervid imaginations of the race-obsessed media.
