Alec Baldwin Fired from MSNBC for Anti-Gay Slurs … Baldwin Points Out Hypocrisy, Asks Why “Martin Bashir’s On the Air” with Comment He Made About Sarah Palin “On the Air”
Alec Balwin is out at MSNBC …
The NY Post is reporting that MSNBC has had it with Alec Baldwin and fired him. It would appear his latest unhinged rant was just the final excuse that MSNBC needed to whack Baldwin and his weak ratings show after just four episodes. My that was quick. It would appear though that according to reports that Baldwin was quite the PITA diva. Baldwin’s unhinged antics reported by the media would appear to have been common place at MSNBC as well by the classy Baldwin. But that is what happens when you screamed at a media photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.”
Just how bad must Baldwin truly have been to deal with for an uber-lib like him being given his walking slip by liberal BSNBC?
The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” was canceled Tuesday because of the actor’s foul-mouthed, homophobic rant at a New York Post photographer.
Baldwin’s spokesman Matthew Hiltzik and a rep for the cable channel said, “We are jointly confirming that ‘Up Late’ will not continue on MSNBC.” The MSNBC spokeswoman added, “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.”
Baldwin was suspended — supposedly for two weeks — after he screamed at a Post photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.” The “30 Rock” star was supposed to resume his weekly show Friday.
Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated colleagues when he demanded a separate makeup room that was being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.
When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f?-?-?k if she has cancer or not, I want that f?-?-?king makeup room.”
As reported at Page Six, Baldwin was impossible to work with and became more and more impossible to work with as his ratings sunk. What a combination, a male diva, a bomb of a show and a lib who did not want to work hard. There is a recipe for success. In typical Alec Baldwin style, he pretty much blamed others for the show’s demise as Baldwin blamed “the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy” for the show’s cancellation. Baldwin said, “They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
A network source told Page Six’s Emily Smith, “The frustration set in several weeks ago. All Baldwin’s shows were unwatchable. He assumed it would be a success, and when he saw the ratings were a disaster, he stopped wanting to do a lot of work for a little audience.
“Baldwin found out that cable news is tough, and stopped making an effort,” said the source.
This is good, when LIBS attack each other It would appear that Alec Baldwin told the Gothamist that there seems to be just a little bit of hypocrisy as he was fired, yet Martin Bashir made an over the top comments about Sarah Palin on air and nothing happened to him, not even a suspension. C’mon man, you know better than that Alec … you can call a conservative woman every name in the book and wish anything upon her, as for gay slurs, that is strictly verboden.
“Martin Bashir’s on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made… if I called him ‘c*cksucking maggot’ or a ‘c*cksucking motherf*cker’… ‘faggot’ is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you’ve got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy—Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan—they’re out there, they’ve got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
Robert Gibbs on Obamacare Failure: “I Think If This Were to Happen in the Private Sector Some One Probably Would Have Already Lost Their Job”
Don’t look now but former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs has become one of Barack Obama’s and Obamacare’s biggest critics. The former Obama mouth piece told The Today Show that Barack Obama should have fired someone already over the disastrous Obamacare roll-out. Gibbs stated, ”I think if this were to happen in the private sector some one probably would have already lost their job.”
However, its not just about a web site. As was stated there are two core issues at hand here, one the competence of the government with the disastrous, glitchy Healthcare.gov and two, Barack Obama’s credibility having lied to the American people by promising if you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. This is not the first time Gibbs has spoken out against the failed Obamacare. Gibbs had previously said that to sell Obamacare as “you can keep your health care insurance” was a big mistake. and that the Obamacare roll out was nothing but “Excruciatingly Embarrassing.” Gibbs has voiced the opinion for a while that some one needs to be fired.
I would go one further Mr. Gibbs. I would dare say that if this was the private sector and some one had perpetrated a “bait and switch” malicious fraud on so many individuals as Barack Obama did with Obamacare, some one would have been indicted on felony fraud charges.
Obamacare Operator Erling Davis Fired After Taking Call From Hannity … Operator Says No Really Likes Obamacare (Update: Hannity To Pay Her a Year’s Salary)
Looks like some one has finally been fired for Obamacare and its not HHS Sec. Sebelius. Obamacare operator fired for being honest with Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity …
Sean Hannity called in to the Obamacare call center and after several minutes of waiting got through to an Obamacare operator. Hannity spoke to Erling Davis for nearly 10 minutes about Obamacare and got some surprisingly honest answers. When asked by Hannity whether she had got anybody on the phone that really likes Obamacare, she responded, “Umm, no, not really”. It looks like there is consequences in the United States for “free speech” as for her efforts, operator Erling Davis was fired for her actions.
It is actually phenomenal to think that Erling was the only person fired after all the glitches, tech problems and failures of the Obamacare website. Rather unreal if you think about it, isn’t it? So thanks to Obamacare, another person has been added to the unemployment line.
HANNITY: They’re really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?
OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can’t get in.
HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?
OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.
HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?
OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.
Tonight Sean Hannity had Erline Davis on his television program.
He offered her a check to cover her salary for a year.
He also set up a hotline to help Earline find another job.
If you want to help Erline Davis get a job or give her well wished email her at email@example.com
Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Says Obamacare Rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing”
OUCH, THIS ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A MARK …
Former Obama White House Press Secretary and top aid Robert Gibbs calls Obamacare roll-out “Excruciatingly Embarrassing!!!” Gibbs stated on MSNBC’s Now that “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.” Gibbs also went on to say that individuals need to be fired. How bad is it when an individual like Gibbs is coming out and stating the obvious as Barack Obama and current WH press secretary Carney, just call it glitchy?
From The Blaze:
“This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services,” Gibbs said on MSNBC Monday. “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.”
Repeating the “excruciatingly embarrassing” charge, Gibbs said it’s “not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March.”
He said buying health care through the exchanges is different from a one-time music purchase on iTunes, but that “if they don’t get these glitches figured out fast, people aren’t going to come back” to compare costs and make their final decisions.
“I hope they’re working day and night to get this done and when they get it fixed I hope they fire some people that were in charge,” Gibbs said. “We knew there were going to be some glitches, right? But these are glitches that go, quite frankly, beyond the pale of what should be expected.”
The Job Killing Obama Healthcare Legislation Law … 74% of Small Businesses will Fire Workers and Cut Hours under Obamacare
Obamacare … this is the reason why a bill that affects so many Americans is supposed to be read, discussed and passed by a bipartisan vote.
According to a recent poll, the Chambers survey showed that three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to avoid the costly Obamacare law by firing workers to get under 50 employees, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time. At a time in which the unemployment rate is consistently above 7%, so many Americans find themselves underemployed and food stamps are at an all time high, now small businesses have this terrible law thrust upon than that is a job killer and will now have workers converted for full time to part time. The Obama administration has already delayed the employer mandate until 2015 as they scramble to implement this fiasco. The House looks to take a vote to delay the individual mandate as well. However, no matter, whether the delay is one year or 2, employers are already making decisions to deal with the law so to defray the new expenses in Obamacare. So can some one explain again how Obamacare is good for America?
Despite the administration’s controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“Small businesses expect the requirement to negatively impact their employees. Twenty-seven percent say they will cut hours to reduce full time employees, 24 percent will reduce hiring, and 23 percent plan to replace full time employees with part-time workers to avoid triggering the mandate,” said the Chamber business survey provided to Secrets.
Under Obamacare, just 30 hours — not the nationally recognized 40 hours — is considered full-time. Companies with 50 full-time workers or more are required to provide health care, or pay a fine.
- 77 percent continue to think the U.S. economy is on the wrong track. However, small businesses are more optimistic about their local economy and individual business.
- The majority (61 percent) of small businesses do not have plans to hire next year.
- Concerns about regulation have increased significantly from 35 percent last quarter to 42 percent now.
This should come as a shock to no one, you were all warned that this would happen. But we were just called racists and Obama haters. No, we were calling the signature piece of Barack Obama legislation for what it was, a disaster that was terrible for Americans and America.
Justice? Ex-Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee Says He Was Pressured By City Officials To Arrest George Zimmerman in Death of Trayvon Martin Even Though He Already Cleared Him Of Any Wrongdoing
So much for the US Constitution, its now about mob rule. So this is how we arrest individuals and administer justice now for a crime in a
Banana Republic United States?
Former Sanford, Florida Police Chief Bill Lee told CNN in an interview that he was fired for not arresting George Zimmerman. According to Bill Lee, he was pressured by city officials who cared more about appeasing the public, rather than if George Zimmerman was guilty. The city officials just wanted an arrest and did not care whether the US Constitution was followed or not. Lee told the officials you can’t arrest without probable cause, and was fired for upholding Zimmerman’s constitutional rights.
“The police department needed to do a job, and there was some influence — outside influence and inside influence — that forced a change in the course of the normal criminal justice process,” Lee said. “With all the influence and the protests and petitions for an arrest, you still have to uphold your oath.”
“That investigation was taken away from us. We weren’t able to complete it,” he said.
The George Zimmerman investigation was hijacked “in a number of ways” by outside forces, said the former police chief of Sanford, Florida.
Bill Lee, who testified Monday in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial, told CNN’s George Howell in an exclusive interview that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice.
“It was (relayed) to me that they just wanted an arrest. They didn’t care if it got dismissed later,” he said. “You don’t do that.”
When Sanford police arrived on the scene on February 26, 2012, after Zimmerman fatally shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, they conducted a “sound” investigation, and the evidence provided no probable cause to arrest Zimmerman at the scene, he said.
It had nothing to do with Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law, he said; from an investigative standpoint, it was purely a matter of self-defense.
Was the fix in from the beginning to railroad George Zimmerman from the outset and get their pound of flesh from Zimmerman, no matter what? So this is what passes as “justice” in the United States? We now have mob rule and the over all riding factor is that Zimmerman be found guilty to prevent race riots, rather than the rule of law. So let’s appease the Black panthers rather than provide a defendant their Constitutional rights. UNREAL.
Yup, this is what happens when you get race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and a liberal media whipping the public into a frenzy and cry “RACISM”. The Gateway Pundit shows even more judicial bias as Judge Nelson inappropriately goes after the defense and George Zimmerman in a bullying tactic.

Florida Police Officer Sgt. Ron King Fired for Bringing Targets Resembling Trayvon Martin to Gun Range … Officer Claims Target Was a ‘No-Shoot training Aid’
The Port Canaveral Police Department has fired Sgt. Ron King because he allegedly brought targets resembling Trayvon Martin to a gun range and had asked two other officers and a civilian whether they wanted to shoot at the targets. The targets displayed a hooded sweatshirt with a target on the chest, Skittles in the pocket and iced tea in a hand. Sgt. Ron King, who had been with the Port Canaveral police force for two years, owns a company in which he offers firearm training and personal safety coaching and spent nearly 22 years with the Melbourne Police Department. Port Authority interim CEO Jim Walsh stated, “Whether it was his stupidity or his hatred, (this is) not acceptable.” Hmm, so individuals get fired for stupidity? If that were the case 95% of politicians would be out of a job.
A Florida police officer fired for bringing targets resembling Trayvon Martin to a gun range apologized to the shooting victim’s family “for being used as a pawn in somebody’s political agenda” but said the targets are a valuable training tool.
Police Sgt. Ron King denied claims by Port Canaveral Interim Chief Executive Officer John Walsh that King was leading target practice with two other officers and a civilian earlier this month when he asked the group if they wanted to shoot at the targets.
The Port Canaveral Police Department fired King on Friday following an internal investigation, according to port officials.
Port Canaveral Sgt. Ron King defends himself and proclaims his innocence in the below video claiming that he referred to the targets as a “no shoot training aid”. King refuses to sit by and watch he and the Martin family be used for others political agendas. And there lies the rub. Who knows what was in the mind of Sgt. Ron King, what he said, or what the complaining parties said, heard or later attested to. One thing is a certainty when it comes to the Trayvon Martin murder case where George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer, is charged with second degree murder in the teens death, it’s highly political and racially charged. Why would anyone even attempt to d something with a Trayvon Martin target whether it was being used for a good or less than honorable thing? Nothing good could come of it as the racial blood is in the water and individuals are just waiting to pounce on it. In today’s PC world and the media bias involved in this case, anyone would be crazy to use any likeness, reference or anything to do with Trayvon, Skittles or Hoodies is job suicide.
Sorry, I find it hard to believe that a police officer of 25 years would publically do something like use a Trayvon Martin poster silhouette to use as a shooting target. Did he have it, yes, King admits he did. However, the lack of judgment and understanding that this would get politically hijacked is on him. Who could not have predicted that this could have come to no good?
“Using real-life situations as a training scenario is not uncommon,” King said.
King apologized to Trayvon’s family and to any law enforcement professionals who may have been embarrassed by the publicity swirling around the incident. He accused an unnamed officer of inventing details of the incident to damage the credibility of the police department’s leadership.
“I remain a professional law enforcement officer and a professional firearms instructor,” said King, who can appeal his dismissal. “I refuse to sit by while others use the Martin family and myself as a way to further their own political and career agendas.”
Trayvon Martin’s family attorney released a statement saying, “It is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice.”
Yet just another example of more poor Obama investments in so-called “Green” energy companies …
Add Fisker Automotive to the long list of Obama’s green energy investment failures. As reported at Bloomberg, Fisker Automotive is firing as much as 75% of workforce. President Barack Obama and the Department of Energy should be forced to explain to the “We the People” why they pissed away the American tax payers hard earned money and continue to do so with these wasteful investments in to so-called green energy. When will the MSM ever do their job and hold Obama accountable? When will the American people ever wake up and do the same?
Fisker Automotive Inc.’s mass firings after receiving federal loans to build luxury plug-in cars is adding to the political debate over the U.S. government’s funding of clean-energy programs.
Most of the assets of Fisker’s battery supplier that received a $249.1 million federal grant, the former A123 Systems Inc. (AONEQ), were acquired last year by a Chinese company. Now Fisker, awarded $529 million in U.S. loans, is firing 75 percent of its workforce after failing to secure a deal with an automotive partner to fund operations.
The debacle is reviving questions over whether the government should be funding makers of alternative energy ventures. Fisker and A123, whose bankruptcy halted Fisker’s output, have drawn Republican criticism of President Barack Obama’s support of green-energy programs intended to spur more fuel-efficient cars.
How long will it be until Fisker Automotive declares bankruptcy? Its already on the list of Obama’s green energy investment failures. Obama’s green energy investments have been a joke, now they are officially a complete joke.

Only A Matter of Time … Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti Resigns in Wake of Mike Rice Abusive Behavior Scandal Firing
The Buck does not stop at the desk of the Rutgers University President …
In the wake of the firing of Rutgers University Basketball coach Mike Rice firing and the scandal that surrounded his abusive behavior toward his players, it was only a matter of time before the next shoe dropped. Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti has now resigned in an effort to calm down the public furor over their handling of abusive behavior by the Scarlet Knights’ men’s basketball coach. We had asked the very question, why once the video came out of the inappropriate and abusive behavior of coach Rice was he fired as opposed to when he was first punished with a suspension? Those that made the decision to only suspend Rice saw the very same videos. Obviously, those at Rutgers who made the decision to only suspended Rice had made a grave error in judgment and were going to pay a price once the video became viral. However, how many scapegoats will be required to take the fall to make up for the initial non-firing of Rice?
They also revealed that the circle of people who viewed video of abusive treatment of players by the coach, Mike Rice, as early as December was wider than previously understood, and that it included members of the university’s board of governors. That group was informed of the decision to suspend Mr. Rice for three games and send him to anger-management counseling, but not to fire him, according to Ralph Izzo, chairman of the Rutgers board.
On Friday morning, two days after Mr. Rice was fired, Athletic Director Tim Pernetti resigned, and implied that he was being made a scapegoat. He said his initial inclination when he saw the videos last fall was to fire Mr. Rice, but “Rutgers decided to follow a process involving university lawyers, human resources professionals, and outside counsel.”
Robert L. Barchi, the president of Rutgers, placed the blame on Mr. Pernetti and other senior officials who he said recommended that Mr. Rice be suspended rather than fired.
At a news conference Friday afternoon, Rutgers University President Robert L. Barchi announced the resignations of Mr. Pernetti and John B. Wolf, the university’s general counsel. It would appear at Rutgers, the buck does not stop at the president, it stops at those beneath him who he wishes to throw under the bus. Question, how with such a scandal like this does the president of a university not watch a tape unless they wish to claim plausible deniability?
Dr. Barchi placed the blame for the decision to suspend rather than fire Mr. Rice in December squarely on Mr. Pernetti and the university’s lawyers, saying he had not watched the video of Mr. Rice’s actions last fall and instead had relied on their descriptions of it.
“I know had I seen the tape that my assessment would have differed from theirs, and I would have acted on my assessment,” Dr. Barchi said.
When asked why he had not watched the video, he said: “I can’t answer exactly why I didn’t. You can only say in retrospect I sure wish I had.”
