New York Post Writes … Ryan Lochte Is Everything the World Hates about Americans … Why Does Lying, Entitled, Unethical Hillary Clinton Get a Pass?
HMM, I WOULD ASK YOU ALL … WHY IS RYAN LOCHTE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN HILLARY CLINTON?
Welcome to the double standard of the MSM. As the media tries to make American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, yeah most Americans are saying, who, public enemy number one and the face of the “Ugly American” … the same media gives lying, crooked and corrupt Hillary Clinton a pass. The MSM is all over the story as to whether Lochte and 3 other American swimmers who claimed they were robbed at gun point in Rio during the Olympics are lying or not. Calls to throw them in jail, teach them a lesson have been made. Really? In the infamous words of Hillary Clinton, ‘What difference does it make”? Are you telling me that Lochte and the 3 other swimmers, if true lied, should be held to a higher standard than Hillary Clinton? Lochte did not have a private email server in his bathroom saving top secret US government emails. Lochte did not use his position as a member of the America swim team to garner access to the US State Department and export donations to his own family foundation. I am pretty sure he does not have a slush fund family foundation. But you know who does, Hillary Clinton!
Could Liar, Liar, speedo on fire be easily changed to Liar, Liar, Pantsuit on Fire? But the lying, corrupt, in the tank media would rather have you believe that Ryan Lochte is worse than Hillary Clinton. This is the diversion of the media and what they will and will not cover. Hillary Clinton committed a crime and should have been indicted under the espionage act, Lochte is just a fool. The MSM would have you believe that Lochte’s lies and coverup is like Watergate, and Hillary is just a victim of the right wing conspiracy. Get a clue America, wake the hell up!
Sometimes, as I’ve traveled overseas, I’ve been troubled by that notion, of the assumption of the Ugly American. I’ve thought it a cartoon, a caricature, whose time was surely over.
And then, sometimes, you see someone like Ryan Lochte open his mouth.
And when you hear what comes tumbling out, it all makes perfect sense.
That’s the worst part of what Lochte and his stable of stumble-bumbling swimmer pals have done the past few days, now that it’s apparent that whatever might have happened to them late one night — actually, early one morning — in Rio, it wasn’t exactly the way Lochte described it the first time around. In fact, it seems apparent that Lochte and his cohorts in chaos — Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen, all swimmers representing the US in a decidedly different way than Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps did — were using the old “robbed-at-gunpoint” chestnut as cover for what was apparently a gas station encounter with a security guard and, quite hilariously, a bathroom door.
LIAR, LIAR, PANTSUIT ON FIRE
Maybe panicky athletes from Kazakhstan or Kenya or Kuala Lampur might have reacted similarly and seized on the easy (though rooted-in-reality) narrative presented for months, that Rio was a cross between the Wild West of yore and the Fort Apache Bronx of the 1970s. Maybe it would have occurred to a rower from Rwanda or a decathlete from Denmark or a sprinter from Spain to go that way. Maybe. But that’s not who did this.
Ryan Lochte — Ugly American with a truly ugly hairstyle — did it.

MEDIA BIAS … CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air Questions to Hillary Clinton On Leaked DNC Emails … Hillary Claims No Knowledge of Emails (VIDEO)
WHAT A LYING SACK OF GARBAGE … LYING HILLARY CLAIMS SHE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE DNC EMAILS …
CBS and 60 Minutes have carried the water once again for the Democrat party. What else would you expect from the Democrat-media complex? During an interview with Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, 60 Minutes decided to not air on TV, only on the internet, the most pressing questions that everyone wanted to hear of the DNC email scandal. That was pathetic enough, then came Hillary’s responses that she had no knowledge of the emails. SURE SHE DIDN’T. Just like she had no knowledge of the top secret emails she had on her private email server. That was a lie and so is this.
Ha, Hillary claims no knowledge of DNC emails, where have we heard that one before? If Hillary Clinton’s lips are moving, you can be assured she is lying.
Hillary claims she had no knowledge of the DNC emails. If you believe that then I have a private email server to sell you.
In the interview that was taped over the weekend and aired in pieces Sunday and today he also asked her about the DNC email scandal.
Clinton said she had no knowledge of a Democratic Party official’s plot to to undermine Bernie Sanders’ support in the primary by planting a story about the senator being an atheist.
Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall suggested in a leaked email midway through the primary schedule that the DNC get a reporter to question his religious beliefs.
‘Does he believe in a god? He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he’s an atheist,’ Marshall wrote. ‘This could make several points difference with my peeps.’
Clinton said in the interview with CBS, ‘I didn’t know anything about it. And I haven’t read any of those.’
‘But I am adamantly opposed to anyone bringing religion into our political process. I mean the constitution says, “no religious tests.” So that is just absolutely wrong and unacceptable.’
Rudy Giuliani Says We Have To Understand More About the Races; However, “Black Lives Matters” is Racist & Anti-American
RUDY GIULIANI SPEAKS THE TRUTH AND TAKES HEAT FOR IT …
Rudy Giuliani went on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ and did what Rudy does, spoke the truth that many, including the media, can not handle. As Jack Nicholson famously said in the movie, ‘A Few Good Men’ … “you can’t handle the truth.” Rudy stated, “Whites and Blacks both have to look at things differently.” He then went on to say, to the horror of an uninformed and agenda driven media, “Black lives matter” is racist.
Check out the VIDEO below tongue lashing and education that Mayor Rudy gave to the liberal MSM. Rudy stated that “Black Lives Matters” is racist and then backed up his assertion with facts. Because if they cared about black lives, they would care about the 93% of deaths where blacks are killed by black crime.
So what kind of a group claims they are for saving the lives of blacks and only focuses on something that happens 1 to 2 percent of the time and avoids 93-95%? Better yet, what kind of a media does the same and pushes a false narrative against authority and police officers?
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani says the Black Lives Matter movement puts a target on the back of police officers. Guiliani adds, “When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist.”
MEDIA BIAS: WHEN YOU CAN’T TRUST THE WORDS, LOOK AT THE NUMBERS …
When you can’t trust the words of a dishonest agenda driven media, pandering Democrats and an ideologue like President Barack Obama, look to the new media to do the number crunching and analysis to report of whether Blacks are being targeted by the police as the MSM would like you to believe. The folks at Powerline ask the question … . Are Blacks disproportionately involved in Police shootings? To listen to the liberal MSM one would say of course, they are reporting it all the time, it must be true. And if you were a lazy, apathetic non-caring info bot, you would be wrong. Check out the statistics and analysis below from Powerline and learn something, rather than just believe what the MSM wants you to hear.
Its not just as simple as 258 blacks represent 26% of the total number of med shot and killed by law enforcement, which is about double the percentage of blacks in the American population and thus the police must be targeting blacks. Sorry WAPO, you might want to dig a little deeper into the numbers and use other qualifiers like blacks have an unusually high rate of contact with the police, both as victims and as perpetrators.
But when the MSM reports white cops killing all blacks as an unarmed and bad shooting, even when the facts state otherwise and forget the fact that believe it or not, some of the police officers involved in the shootings are Hispanic and dare I say it, black. There is a bad element in every profession, teachers, doctors, politicians and yes, police. But let’s take the false narrative out of the equation. It’s a terrible thing when any innocent person is killed, All Lives Matter.
The numbers tell a different story. Like all statistics, they bounce around from year to year, but let’s go with the Washington Post’s study of police shootings in 2015. The Post found that 990 people, almost all of them men, were shot and killed by law enforcement last year. Before you start calling them victims, however, note that the Post also found that in three-quarters of these incidents, police were defending either themselves or someone else who was, at that moment, under attack. That leaves around 250 cases that were not obvious self-defense or defense of a third person. That doesn’t mean, of course, that those shootings were unjustified.
What was the racial breakdown of those who were shot by police in 2015? The largest number, 494, almost exactly half, were white. 258 were black, 172 were Hispanic, and the remaining 66 were either “other” or unknown. (Interestingly, Asians are rarely shot by police officers.)
The 258 blacks represent 26% of the total. That is about double the percentage of blacks in the American population. Is that prima facie evidence of racism on the part of law enforcement? Of course not. It is common knowledge that blacks have an unusually high rate of contact with the police, both as victims and as perpetrators. In 2012-2013, the Department of Justice found that blacks were the perpetrators of 24% of all violent crimes where the race of the perpetrator was known (in 7.8% of violent crimes, it was unknown).
So the percentage of blacks fatally shot by police officers (26%) is almost exactly equal to the percentage of blacks committing violent crimes (24%). Indeed, given that the black homicide rate is around eight times the white rate, it is surprising that the portion of blacks fatally shot by policemen is not higher.
From Instapundit: Heather Mac Donald has a lot more on this in her new book, The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe. Remember that all the noise about this is just a cynical effort to boost black turnout in November. They create a new cause celebre the summer before every election.
