ARE YOU SERIOUS … Democratic Presidential Candidate Martin O’Malley Apologized on Saturday at Netroots for Saying “All Lives Matter” instead of Just “Black Lives Matter”
PUTTING THE “NUT” IN
NETROOTS NUTROOTS NATION CONFERENCE …
UNBELIEVABLE, welcome to what has become the Democrat party. Yesterday at Netroots in Phoenix, Martin O’Malley, a Democratic presidential candidate for 2016 was booed and shouted down after he made the comment, “Black lives, matter, white lives matter, all lives matter”. REALLY? So the mob does not believe that all lives matter? What kind of a sick country do we live in when saying such a thing is considered evil? But the MSM, including Fox news, is too focused on what Donald Trump said about John McCain, rather than also analyzing how a party has come to the point where only a certain color of people lives matter. Maybe the media would like to ask the Democrat candidates for president if All lives matter, and if not why not?
Welcome to black liberal intolerance where all lives don’t matter.
Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized on Saturday for saying “All lives matter” while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.
Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, “Black lives matter!” a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O’Malley responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”
The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.
Later that day, O’Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.
“I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”
Watch below as a presidential candidate buckles to the mob and apologizes for making a comment that, all lives matter. UNREAL. What a bunch of garbage. Isn’t it sad that this country has become one where a presidential candidate is forced to apologize for saying everyone’s lives matter. Imagine what the uproar would have been had O’Malley stated the facts of black on black crime?
“I meant no disrespect. That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”

Jamiel Shaw Sr.’s Son was Murdered By an Illegal Alien (Dreamer & DACA Recipient) Pedro Espinoza from Mexico in 2008 … Do Black Lives Really Matter, or Does It Matter Only If You are Shot By a White Person or White Police Man?
JAMIEL SHAW ASKS A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER NEED TO ANSWER … “DO BLACK LIVES MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER ONLY IF YOU ARE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR A WHITE POLICE OFFICER?
Jamiel Shaw Sr. testified in front of a subcommittee Wednesday, chaired by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). All should watch and take notice of what happened to Mr. Shaw’s son, 17 year old Jamiel Shaw II, who was violently gunned down by Pedro Espinoza in 2008. Pedro Espinoza is a member of the 18th Street gang, a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, and a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. Hardly the harmless and innocent people that Obama, Democrats and gutless Republicans have told us what DREAMer’s are. Espinoza was convicted and sentenced to death in November 2012.
However, this is greater than just a senseless killing. Below is a must watch VIDEO … Do black lives matter? Well, for Barack Obama, only when it fits his political agenda. If a black person is killed by another black person, and especially an illegal, even a gang banger with multiple arrests, the answer is probably not.
“My son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by a DREAMer, a DACA recipient, a child brought to this country by no fault of his own. My family’s peace and freedom was stolen by an illegal alien from Mexico. He was brought here by his illegal alien parents and allowed to grow up as a wild animal.
He continued: “Some people believe that if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person. They want you to believe that DREAM Act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth.”
THIS IS A MUST WATCH VIDEO … DO BLACK LIVES MATTER? DO AMERICAN LIVES MATTER?
Jurors deliberated for less than 4 hours on May 2, before finding Pedro Espinoza, 23, guilty of 1st degree murder for the 2008 shooting death of 17-yaer-old football star Jamiel Shaw Jr. in Los Angeles. They have suggested that he receive the death penalty, reports NBC Los Angeles.
Chicago Blacks Call Barack Obama: “Worst President Ever” and Epic Rant Rant on Illegals From Houston Black Woman Bernadette Lancelin, “Why Can’t They Go Back?”
The death of “Hope & Change” for Black America … Have Black finally turned on Barack Obama and figured out that they’ve been played?
After six disastrous years of the Barack Obama Presidency, the only individuals that truly still back “the worst president” since WWII have been Blacks and liberals. Black Americans may finally be getting a clue and come to the understand that Obama cares little about their plight. Blacks voted for Obama 95% – 4% in 2008 and 93% – 6% in 2012; however, conditions for blacks under the Obama administration have become worse, not better. In 2008, black unemployment was at 10.1%. In July 2014, the BLS had black unemployment at 10.7%. This is more than double that of Whites. So what happened to that “Hope and Change” that Obama promised? It is even worse for teenage blacks and college graduates. Then there are the “killing fields” of Chicago that Obama has simply ignored.
In the wake of the illegal immigration humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border and the so called help that Barack Obama wants to do by throwing billions of dollars at, it would appear that Black America is finally pissed at this president for all of his double speak and failed promises. Has black America figured out that Obama and Democrats care more about Hispanics that they do blacks? What did they expect when they vote as one for one candidate and one party? Their vote is expected, not valued. Legal Insurrection refers to it as, Clash of the Titan special interest groups. Are Hispanics the new black?
BELOW ARE MUST SEE VIDEOS:
It is about time some one in the Black community ripped Obama a new one for his actions. As reported at the Western Journal, Bernadette Lancelin, a Houston resident, is furious that while her kids have gone without any help from anyone and have had nothing for years, illegals pouring into the country on a daily basis have their every need attended to. She does not mince words.
It’s not right,” Lancelin said. “Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them. What about the [expletive deleted] kids here? In our neighborhood, in our country? Not just in this neighborhood but in our country!”
“All these kids: really? Why can’t they go back? I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on,” she continued. “I don’t care. I care about what’s going on right here, in my own back yard, my neighborhood.”
“Am I the only one in this community that’s out here that watches the news every [expletive deleted] morning? Oh my God! I feel alone right now in this, and I’m very saddened by it.”
Bernadette Lancelin, Houston Black Woman EPIC Rant on Illegals – “Why Can’t They Go Back?”
Chicago Resident: Obama Will Go Down as Worst President Ever
Check out the Chicago – South-side residents ripping Barack Obama a new one in that he cares more about illegals coming into the United States than legal residents in the inner city of Chicago. From the Rebel Pundit, one resident states, “He will probably go down as the worst president ever!”
“With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.”
Another compared the current state of Black-American life to that during slavery, saying, “Today, if you look at the time that we were brought here as slaves 400 years ago, we got the same results today.”
The disgrace of the Obama years. All those promises, all those votes and the black plight has been made worse.
Koch Brothers Donate $25M to the United Negro College Fund … Sen. Harry Reid (NV-D) Was Unavailable for Comment
Because the mind is a terrible thing to waste, even though Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi do it on a daily basis
Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation, which are headed by Charles and David Koch have donated $25 million to the United Negro College Fund to create a new scholarship program that will help motivated and deserving students not just get to and through school, but to become our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. Oh those evil Koch Brothers. What say you Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV-D), are you going to vilify the Koch brothers for this as well, like you do as a diversion to create a GOP bogeyman?
The billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, known best for shepherding big money to conservative causes and candidates, have given a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund, the organization announced Friday.
The money will come from Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation, which are headed by the brothers. Most of the money ($18.5 million) will go toward a scholarship program. The other $6.5 million is provided for general support to historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF, $4 million of which will be set aside for loan assistance.
The UNCF is the nation’s largest minority education group.
Just how much heat will Michael Lomax, UNCF president and chief executive, receive for the praising of the Koch brothers? He said, “UNCF is proud to announce this new scholarship program that will help motivated and deserving students not just get to and through school, but to become our next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs We are enormously grateful to Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation for their long-standing support of UNCF and for helping to create new opportunities for earned success and a better future for our students.”
The overarching goal of the UNCF/Koch Scholars Program is aimed at broadening educational opportunities so that aspiring African American students can better understand how entrepreneurship, economics, and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities, and society. A key component of the program is based on research from UNCF’s Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute, which found that an annual $5,000 scholarship dramatically increases UNCF’s recipients’ rate of retention and likelihood of completion. Those who graduate with a college degree are expected to earn $1 million more than their peers with a high school diploma over a lifetime. And 79 percent of college-educated African Americans actively participate in the labor force, 3 percentage points higher than Caucasians. Furthermore, multiple studies show that those who earn at least a bachelor’s degree have higher rates of employment, have greater lifetime earnings, are more civically-engaged, and are more likely to establish a college-going tradition in their families. The new program will dedicate $1 million to supporting research to help understand the drivers of success for students in college and beyond.
Charles Koch said, “Increasing well-being by helping people improve their lives has long been our focus.” He went on to say, “We have tremendous respect for UNCF and we are hopeful this investment will further its effectiveness in helping students pursue their dreams.” Just curious Harry Reid, Nanny Pelosi and Barack Obama, what have you really done for African-Americans in pursuing their dreams except keep them government dependent and under this administration more unemployed?
Since Democrats cannot blame GWB anymore and cannot run on Obamacare, the economy or foreign or domestic policy … its blame the Koch brothers 24/7.
The ball is in your court Harry Reid.
Charles Krauthammer Points Out the Hipocrisy & Lies of Obama/Democrats Increasing Minimum Wage … Obama’s Minimum Wage Plan Would Hurt Poor
Democrats and their hypocrisy with the CBO numbers and the very people that they claim to help.
Fox News contributor and syndicated columnist, Charles Krauthammer, appeard on the ‘Kelly File’ and shredded Barack Obama’s and Democrats claims that a raise in the minimum wage will help the poor. Krauthammer stated that this Democrat plan to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 to help the poor would hurt the very people that Obama supposedly intended to help. Krauthammer and Kelly both showed Obama’s and Democrat hypocrisy when it comes to dismissing the CBO’s evaluation of the minimum wage plan because it goes against their agenda.
However, Charles Krauthammer’s most important point and damning statement which is causing Dems to cringe was as follows: “Democrats like to redistribute income, and they pretend it’s always from the rich to the poor. What the CBO has shown, absolutely clearly, is that when you raise the minimum wage, you’re redistributing income from one set of low income people to another set of low income people.”
Krauthammer continued by saying that the math contradicts the Obama administration’s claim that it wants to help poorer Americans.
“We know that Dems like to redistribute income, and they pretend it’s always from the rich to the poor,” he said. “What the CBO has shown, absolutely clearly, is that when you raise the minimum wage, you’re redistributing income from one set of low income people to another set of low income people.”
And the damage will fall on those who are most economically vulnerable, Krauthammer said.
“There are going to be about half a million people who go from $7 an hour to zero,” he said. “They’re going to be destitute.”
Krauthammer finished by saying that raising the minimum wage would, in fact, have the reverse effect of its intention.
“The irony is, that the winners get a marginal advantage, but for the losers, it’s devastation,” he said. “This administration is robbing the people it says it really wants to help.”
What a shocker, President Barack Obama’s minimum wage economic policies look to destroy more jobs …
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report on the economic effects of Barack Obama’s proposal to increase the minimum wage from its present $7.25 per hour to $10.10. The CBO looked at two options. One, raise the minimum wage in three steps to $10.10 by 2016, and Two, raise it in two steps to $9.00 by 2016. In either option, the US economy either loses some jobs or many jobs, but make no mistake, they will lose jobs. The CBO announced that an increase in the minimum wage will cost between 500,000 and one million jobs. Basically, Obama and Democrats boasting about raising the minimum wage is nothing more than a distraction to their current political nightmare.
Well this does not fit the Obama/Democrat Talking points …
Once fully implemented in the second half of 2016, the $10.10 option would reduce total employment by about 500,000 workers, or 0.3 percent, CBO projects (see the table below). As with any such estimates, however, the actual losses could be smaller or larger; in CBO’s assessment, there is about a two-thirds chance that the effect would be in the range between a very slight reduction in employment and a reduction in employment of 1.0 million workers.
As summed up by the PJ Tatler, the report in that there is one positive impact to raising the minimum wage, although one groups silver lining is another’s silver bullet. Is it really worth raising some out of poverty at the expense of even more people losing their jobs completely?
The CBO does find one positive impact: Raising the minimum wage would move some 900,000 Americans out of poverty.
But that would come at the cost of potentially sending a million workers out of jobs altogether. That’s hardly the goal that Obama and the Democrats are selling.
The Washington Times discusses Three ways that the CBO contradicts Obama on minimum wage. Imagine that, Obama lying?
- Obama: “The opponents of the minimum wage have been using the same arguments for years, and time and again they’ve been proven wrong. Raising the minimum wage is good for business, and it’s good for workers, and it’s good for the economy.”
- Obama: “Rais[ing] the federal minimum wage to $10.10 wouldn’t just raise wages for minimum-wage workers, its effect would lift wages for about 28 million Americans.”
- Obama: Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, “would lift millions of Americans out of poverty immediately.”
I have to ask the following parting question: How is it that Obama and his minions can tell us what the positive benefits will be to raising the minimum wage, but they can’t tell us to the person how many are 100% enrolled in Obamacare and have paid their first premiun when the data is on a database in front of them?
VP Biden Uses MLK Day Address to Race Bait … ‘Our Opponents Know the Single Most Dangerous Thing to Give Us Is the Right to Vote’
Remember what I said about those using Martin Luther King Jr’s message to pander and use to their own self-serving agendas …
Enter Vice President Joe Biden using Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a vehicle to attack voter ID laws and comparing them to poll taxes and literacy tests. Because God forbid we taking voting more serious and want to know that fraud is not being committed more than using photo ID to buy alcohol, cash a check, enter your work place or get on a plane. Biden went on to tell the Al Sharpton crowd, need we say more, “This has been the ultimate fight because our opponents know the single most dangerous thing to give us is the right to vote. ” Hmm, speaking of literacy, does crazy Joe realize that we all do have the right to vote?
I need what operator, a valid form of ID to get into the event, OK.
Vice President Joe Biden used Martin Luther King Jr. Day to launch an all-out attack on voter ID laws, which he implied were similar to poll taxes and literacy tests.
“This has been the ultimate fight because our opponents know the single most dangerous thing to give us is the right to vote,” Biden said Monday at a breakfast sponsored by Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in Washington, D.C. “Now we’re in a hail storm.”
The vice president went on to rip into the U.S. Supreme Court for weakening the Voting Rights Act.
Biden told the Sharpton group they are doing “God’s work” and praised both King and President Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed both the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act into law.
GEEZ … Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) Calls for “Unemployment Insurance for Working Men and Women” (Video)
The gentle woman from Texas said, “the pope being named man of the year has spoken to the world eloquently,” hah, which is more than I can say for Sheila Jackson Lee.
US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called for “unemployment insurance for working men and women.” Huh, didn’t Barack Obama and his minions just tell us that the economy is rebounding? Why would we need an further continuation of long term unemployment. Looks like Sheila Jackson Lee wants to go one better and provide unemployment benefits to the working as well. I am hoping that she misspoke, but then again with these liberal Democrats and Obamanomics, one never knows.
Hey, why not unemployment insurance for all … according to Democrats, best way to grow the economy. What is wrong with these people? How did America ever elect these socialists into the majority of anything?
Let’s not forget this other classic Sheila Jackson Lee moments of brilliance:
- Entitlements Are ‘Earned
- I Stand Here a Freed Slave
- Thinks America planted flag on Mars not the Moon
- My Constituents are Ill-Informed
- There are two Vietnam’s: North and South
- Constitution Gives Me Immunity to Discriminate Against the Disabled

Quid Pro Quo … Detroit City Council Woman JoAnn Watson Tells Obama, We Voted for you, Now Bail us Out with Government Bacon
Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You“. Ask what you can do for your country.
Ask not what you can do for your country, but what you can take from your country. Welcome to the Obama “Quid pro quo” BACON BAILOUT.
The Left demands government pork for votes … Detroit Council woman Joann Watson wants some “bacon” from Barack Obama after blacks voted for him. Elections do have consequences and now it appears time for Obama to payback for all of his class warfare political rhetoric. Watson literally said its time for some “quid pro quo”. Since blacks in Detroit, Michigan overwhelmingly voted for Obama, they deserve a bailout. Thus, as stated at Michelle Malkin, a city that has been consistently mismanaged and run into the ground now expects and demands a bailout. It is the same old story as usual. Provide no fiscal responsibility and expect that some one else will bail you out. All that is accomplished is the same vicious, idiotic cycle continues. Look for Illinois and California to be asking Obama to bail out their failed states as well. It is obvious that people voted for Obama for what he could take from others to give to them.
Our people voted for Obama and now we expect pork from him. How morally bankrupt has this country become?
The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.
City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen)
“Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”
As Weasel Zippers opines, Bacon is defined as Obamaphones, EBT cards, food stamps, “stimulus” money.
One might think that the United States would learn from what happened across the Pond.
So President Barack Obama and the Left think that raising taxes n the so-called rich is the answer, eh? Take a good look what happened when the British PM raised taxes on millionaires. Two-thirds of millionaires either left the UK or reduced their taxable income in order to avoid the 50% take rate. The British naively thought they were going to increase revenues by merely increasing the tax rate on millionaires and doing simple math. However, instead of raising funds, it actually cost the UK £7 billion in lost tax revenue.
Almost two-thirds of the country’s million-pound earners disappeared from Britain after the introduction of the 50p top rate of tax, figures have disclosed.
In the 2009-10 tax year, more than 16,000 people declared an annual income of more than £1 million to HM Revenue and Customs.
This number fell to just 6,000 after Gordon Brown introduced the new 50p top rate of income tax shortly before the last general election.
The figures have been seized upon by the Conservatives to claim that increasing the highest rate of tax actually led to a loss in revenues for the Government.
It is believed that rich Britons moved abroad or took steps to avoid paying the new levy by reducing their taxable incomes.
Think Barack Obama and Democrats could learn from this? Hell no, Obama and Democrats can’t even learn from the government overspending and entitlement program fiasco going on in Greece. Instead Obama continues his class warfare and puts forward the myth that taxing the so-called rich is the answer to all of America’s fiscal ills.
