Louisiana Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu Says Barack Obama Struggles Politically in South Because Southerners Are Racist and Sexist … Oh Yeah and that Energy Policy
Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu went there … The South is racist and sexist …
With just days ahead of the 2014 midterm elections and incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu is in a close race, she did what comes natural for Democrats when they have nothing to run on of their own, play the race and sex card. In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Mary Landrieu stated that Barack Obama has had a difficult time politically in the South because, “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves.” WHAT? In a mark of desperation, Mary Landrieu went there. How tired is this constant cry of racism and war on woman? Sorry Mary, but Obama’s struggles in the South have everything to do with his policies like his anti-energy ones and Obamacare.
This divisive stunt by Landrieu might just cost the Democrats any close election in Southern states like North Carolina, Georgia and Arkansas. The issue before the election will be whether these Democrat candidates agree with Mary Landrieu that the South is racist and sexist.
LANDRIEU: One of the main reasons is because his energy policies are really different than ours. I mean, we’re a pro-production state. We wanna drill almost anywhere. People believe that it’s an opportunity for Americans to become energy self-sufficient.
One of the reasons that the president’s so unpopular is because HE put the moratorium on off-shore drilling. remember? After Macondo. And our state was furious about that. Now he could have shut down the BP operations but he didn’t, he shut down the whole Gulf. When you shut down the whole gulf of Mexico it puts a lot of people here at risk and out of business. That’s number one.
I’ll be very very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place. So we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that, but you know, the people trust me, I believe. Really they do. Trust me to do the right thing for the state.
Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday that the issue of race is a major reason that President Barack Obama has struggled politically in Southern states.
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.
Comment in response from Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who called it “remarkably divisive.” The Gateway Pundit reminds us that Bobby Jindal is an Indian-American.
“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said in a statement. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”
Evidence Supports Police Officer Darren Wilson’s Account of Shooting in Ferguson, MO in Shooting of Michael Brown … Eric Holder Only Concerned About Info Leaks, Not the Truth
So what happens if Police officer Darin Wilson is not found guilty or even indicted? Will Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson apologize?
The WAPO reports that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, then later Wilson shot Brown dead as the teenager confronted the police officer. Hmm, that is a much different story than was originally told and the MSM misreporting. The evidence is starting to point to officer Wilson did nothing wrong. According to the WAPO, 7 or 8 African American eyewitnesses have provided testimony consistent with Wilson’s account, but none have spoken publicly out of fear for their safety. A note to the folks in Ferguson, there is a difference between justice and vengeance.
Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.
Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.
Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which casts Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.
The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests that the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest.
However, Benjamin L. Crump, an attorney for the Brown family, stated that any facts that support police officer Darren Wilson’s will never be accepted as the truth by Brown’s supporters or family. Far be it that the facts get in the way of a riot in Ferguson, MO.
Benjamin L. Crump, an attorney for the Brown family, said Brown’s family and supporters will not be convinced by the autopsy report or eyewitness statements that back Wilson’s account of the incident.
The family has not believed anything the police or this medical examiner has said,” Crump said. “They have their witnesses. We have seven witnesses that we know about that say the opposite.”
Thomas Eric Duncan, Dallas Patient Dies From Ebola … Jesse Jackson Looking to Cash In on Unfair Treatment … “We know there’s different treatment among blacks in this country.”
A note to the family and friends of the departed, do not disgrace his memory with a Jesse Jackson shakedown …
10 days after he was admitted to a Texas hospital, Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday from Ebola. Duncan became the first diagnosed case of Ebola when he traveled from Liberia to the United States to visit family and friends, departing Liberia on September 19 and became sick with the disease while in Dallas, Texas. Ebola has a 50% mortality rate and to date there is no known cure. Death is never easy to deal with, but lets keep this specific incident in perspective. Louise Troh, Duncan’s longtime partner, said through a public relations firm that she believes “a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care.” Enter Jesse Jackson, race-baiter, opportunist, shakedown artist and family spokesman said, “He got sick and went to the hospital and was turned away, and that’s the turning point here.” Hmm, is Jackson blaming Obamacare? What Jackson is looking to do is go for the out of court settlement with the hospital and get his stipend.
Let’s look and examine just how Thomas Eric Duncan came to find himself in Dallas, Texas. Duncan came to the United States after having lied on his exit documents in leaving West Africa that he’d had contact with the virus, even though he had direct contact an Ebola-stricken pregnant woman, who later died. Thomas Eric Duncan answered “no” to questions about whether he’d cared for someone with the virus. Let us also examine how he put so many unsuspecting individuals at risk because of this lie.
Several Ebola patients treated in the United States have survived, but the first person ever diagnosed with the deadly virus on American soil didn’t.
Thomas Eric Duncan died Wednesday at a Texas hospital, 10 days after he was admitted.
“Mr. Duncan succumbed to an insidious disease, Ebola. He fought courageously in this battle. Our professionals, the doctors and nurses in the unit, as well as the entire Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas community, are also grieving his passing,” hospital spokesman Wendell Watson said in a statement.
Duncan’s family is devastated, their pastor told reporters. And the woman he had planned to marry is haunted by “what ifs” about his care.
One question family members have asked repeatedly: Would the outcome have been different if doctors had admitted Duncan to hospital on September 25, the first time he showed up with a fever and stomach pain?
“What if they had taken him right away? And what if they had been able to get treatment to him earlier?” Pastor George Mason of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas told reporters.
“He got sick and went to the hospital and was turned away, and that’s the turning point here,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a spokesman for the family, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
UPDATE I: At a news conference following the vigil, Jackson was asked if he thought there was an issue of racism at play.
Without coming out and saying it was racism, Jesse Jackson said that the treatment of Thomas Eric Duncan was racism. Good grief. I guess Jackson believes that Ebola is racist too.
“I don’t want to say that, only because that could become the headline,” he said. “Whether you are white in Atlanta or whether you are white in Nebraska or black in Dallas — we know there’s different treatment among blacks in this country.”
But his tone had changed since the morning. Before he left the city, Jackson spoke highly of Duncan’s care.
“I think they’ve done a marvelous recovery, and we want to embrace the hospital staff and work with them on his recovery,” he said.
However, Jackson added that he remains concerned that Duncan was sent home from the hospital the first time he sought help there.
Yup, here it comes … call the “wahmbulance … the Ebola patient who should never have been allowed in the United States, had he told the truth and received medical care received “unfair” treatment. UNREAL.
Ebola patient Thomas Duncan died in the hospital in Dallas Wednesday, after weeks of being treated for the virus, and just hours later his nephew, Joe Weeks, spoke out against the “unfair” way he believes his uncle was being treated by the hospital.
In comments to ABC News, Weeks says his uncle did not receive the same level of care as Ashoka Mukpo, the NBC freelance cameraman who returned to the U.S. for treatment after being stricken with Ebola. He questions why his uncle wasn’t moved to a hospital where two other Ebola patients were successfully treated.
Pew Research/USA Today Poll: African Americans Think Race Relations Have Gotten Worse Since 2009 Under Barack Obama
WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR …
Wasn’t the election of Barack Obama supposed to make everything better in the United States, including race relation? Wasn’t the election of the first black president supposed to bridge the divide between races? Well a recent Pew Research/USA Today poll says, not so much, especially among blacks. The poll shows that blacks have a 64% positive view of relations between the races, down 12 points from 76% in 2009. Hmm, I guess an Obama administration of perpetual dividing and race baiting would do that.
The new national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted August 20 -24 among 1, 501 adults, finds that overall perceptions of relations between blacks and
whites are only modestly changed from five years ago.
Currently, 69% of the public, including majorities of both whites (75%) and blacks (64%), say blacks and whites in this country get along “very well” or “pretty well.” Since
2009, the share of blacks with a positive view of relations between the races has fallen 12 points (from 76% to 64%) while remaining largely unchanged among whites (80% in 2009).
Full poll can be read HERE.
From the WAPO: Blacks give police lower marks than whites.
Barack Obama Sends More White House Officials to Michael Brown’s Funeral than Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s Funeral … Add Maj. Gen. Harold Greene & photo-journalist James Foley to the List
Sometimes a headline just says it all … What else would One expect from a Community Agitator?
Fox News reports, that the Obama administration sent more White House officials to the Michael Brown funeral than they did for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Hmm, Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher … Michael Brown, Margaret Thatcher. Which one was more historic and important to America, let alone the world? It is just head-shaking the contempt this individual has and over-riding political agenda
The White House sent three officials to attend Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis — three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year.
The administration’s handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two.
For Monday’s funeral, the White House sent two officials with the White House Office of Public Engagement as well as Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force.
No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher’s funeral. For that, the White House sent former secretaries of State George Schultz and James Baker III — as well as the charge d’affaires to the U.K. and the former U.S. ambassador.
At the time, the nature of the delegation stirred controversy in the British media as tabloids claimed British officials felt snubbed that high-level American officials — including President Obama himself — were not attending.
How many do you think they sent to Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, the highest-ranking U.S. military officer killed in combat since the Vietnam War? Hint, Obama, the so-called Commander in Chief was not there, he was too busy with his vacation. How many did Obama send to the funeral of murdered American photo-journalist James Foley?
President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists.
President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo.
Bill O’Reilly Blasts the MSM Coverage of Ferguson, MO News Coverage of the Michael Brown Shooting (VIDEO) … Calls Out Looting Thugs, Charlatan Al Sharpton and Liberal Media
O’REILLY SLAMS THE FERGUSON, MO OPPORTUNISTS …
Bill O’Reilly returned from vacation to put forth the below ‘Talking Point Memo,’ maybe one of his best in a long, long time. O’Reilly discussed the situation in Ferguson, Missouri since the death of Michael Brown on August 9 and blasted the liberal MSM for their bias reporting and ripped the likes of Al Sharpton, calling him a charlatan.
Al Sharpton has the nerve to insult the American police community, men and women risking their lives to protect us. This charlatan has the gall to do that and NBC News is paying him. My god! Why is that acceptable?”
Something Al Sharpton will never give him because Sharpton only cares about his own self-aggrandizement and if he has to stoke racial hatred to get that, that’s what Sharpton will do. I know this man. His record defines him. Yet, he has succeeded in bringing his brand of racial grievance to the White House.
[T]o the race hustlers, Officer Wilson is already guilty. They have convicted him. There slogan is no justice, no peace. I guess that’s lynch mob justice because if those people will never accept anything other than a conviction of murder in this case. They don’t really care what happened. They want Officer Wilson punished and he should be punished if he murdered Michael Brown.
Many of the others are trouble makers who just streamed into town, but the liberal media will never report that. Nor will they report the true picture of criminal justice in the U.S.A.
Al Sharpton Makes Matters Worse in Ferguson, MO … Calls Shooting a “Defining Moment” and then Incites the Crowd Against the Police
AL SHARPTON MAKING MATTERS WORSE IN FERGUSON, MO …
Peaceful protest? Can it really be called a peaceful protest when its intent is to fire up the division between blacks and the police? Al Sharpton spoke during a rally at Greater Grace Church, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014, and did what Sharton does best … fan the flames of racism and division. Sharpton said that the police chief had the audacity to release a tape trying to disparage Michael Brown’s name by releasing a tape of Brown robbing a convenience store earlier the same say he was shot and killed by police officer, Darren Wilson. Some how it is okay to paint police officer Wilson and the entire Ferguson police as racists, but to put forth a video of the so-called “Gentle Giant” strong-armed robbing a store is evil. In Al’s world, race-baiting good, facts bad.
Sad, this is hardly the way to calm Ferguson.
Rev. Al Sharpton, left, speaks with parents of Michael Brown, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, right, during a rally at Greater Grace Church, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014, for their son who was killed by police last Saturday in Ferguson, Mo. Sharpton told the rally Brown’s death was a “defining moment for this country.”
The situation in Ferguson, Missouri escalated Sunday night as police moved in on protesters hours before a state-imposed curfew was set to go into effect.
Police fired tear gas at protesters as some ran through the streets with their hands up, CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported.
Video has also surfaced of protesters throwing items at police, Schneider reported.
The chaos comes on the same day Rev. Al Sharpton lead a peaceful rally in the town.
Addressing a congregation in Ferguson on Sunday, Rev. Sharpton blasted the release by police of a video purportedly showing Michael Brown robbing a store shortly before the unarmed man was shot and killed by a police officer.
The remarks came one day after another standoff between police and protesters.
Here is the VIDEO of suspect Michael Brown strong-arm robbing a convenience store in Ferguson, MO of cigars that Sharpton was complaining about. Disparage Michael Brown’s name? It would appear that Brown is doing a good job of that himself. Who just walks into a store and out with anything they damn well please without paying? Of course this does not mean that it is a justification for police to shoot Brown, but it does give some factual perspective as to what Brown was all about.
The “Divider in Chief” Barack Obama … American Voters strongly Believe the United States is a More Divided Nation Under Obama
THE DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA …
Since the beginning of his presidency and even before during the 2008 presidential election Barack Obama pitted black against white, poor against rich, old against the young, men against women, the USA against its allies, the government against the people and used the race card as often like he was playing golf. It should come as no surprise that the “community agitator” has divided America. That is was agitators do. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 67% of likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. It would seem that Barack Obama is not the one that we have been waiting for.
Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just seven percent (7%) think the country is less divided now, while 21% rate the level of division as about the same.(To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among voters who see more division or about the same level of it, 35% believe President Obama is to blame. But 34% point the finger at Republicans in Congress instead. Twenty-three percent (23%) say they’re both to blame. Just five percent (5%) attribute the division to something else.
One can only hope that Obama has not divided America beyond repair.
New Jersey TV News 12 Reporter Sean Bergin Quits After Station Slashes Pay for Racist Comments … Actually It Was for Having the Courage to Call It Like He Sees It
ONCE AGAIN USING THE RACE CARD WHERE NO RACISM EXISTS …
The title of the video below is, ‘TV Reporter Sean Bergin Quits After Station Slashes Pay for Racist Comment’. Watch the video and determine if you can find the “racist” comments. Yup, neither could I. The fact of the matter is that Sean Bergin was suspended and his pay was cut causing him to quit after he dared take a stance against the growing crime and violence in inner cities. News 12 made him an offer he had to refuse. This is what is being called a racist comment, “The underlying cause for all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers.” REALLY?
A New Jersey news reporter was reportedly suspended Monday after he blamed anti-police sentiments among inner-city residents on “young black men growing up without fathers.”
News 12 reporter Sean Bergin was giving a live report about rookie Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was killed Sunday by suspect Lawrence Campbell, 27, in a shootout at a local Walgreens.
The station interviewed angry residents who had gathered at a makeshift memorial for Mr. Campbell, who was also killed in the shootout.
“He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” his widow, Angelique Campbell, told the station. “Sorry for the officer’s family. That’s, you know, whatever. But, at the end of the day, [Lawrence] got a family, too. All they care about is the officer.”
Mr. Bergin closed the report with a short monologue, that ultimately got him suspended,
“We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer,” he said. “It’s understandable. We decided to air it because it’s important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.
“This same sick, perverse line of thinking is evident from Jersey City to Newark and Patterson to Trenton,” he continued. “It has made the police officer’s job impossible, and it has got to stop. The underlying cause for all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject.”
One Year After George Zimmerman Acquittal in Death of Trayvon Martin, The Defense’s ‘Train Wreck’ Star Witness Rachel Jeantel Speaks Out
It was one year ago on July 13, 2013 that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin and the defense’s star witness, let’s rephrase that, train wreck witness Rachel Jeantel speaks out. In an interview with CNN, Jeantel discusses her regrets that she could have said things and acted differently while on the witness stand. She played the victim and blamed the jury for not taking her seriously. Jeantel said, “they judge how they talk, how they look, how they dress.” Jeantel was upset because she felt like she was being judged. ARE YOU KIDDING? Rachel dear, you were a witness in a murder trial. It was the jury’s job to determine whether you were telling the truth and your combative actions and the testimony that Martin told her he was being chased by a “creepy-ass cracker” was judged. Rachel, here is a free life lesson … we are all judged by our actions every day.
Jeantel was the prosecution’s star witness, yet her testimony was a combative, profanity-laced “train wreck” that likely contributed to Zimmerman’s acquittal.
Jeantel’s curt, colloquial language prompted attorneys to ask her to speak up and repeat herself time and again during the trial, eventually eliciting an exasperated, “Are you listening?” from Jeantel.
She told CNN this week that she wishes she had “acted different” on the witness stand.
We do hope that the experiences that Rachel Jeantel went through during the Zimmerman trial does turn her life around and makes her a better person. As stated in the video above, no one knew it at the time of her testimony, but “she was barely able to read and write at the level of a third grader. Whose fault is that exactly? We can blame public school and Rachel Jeantel as she resisted any efforts of tutoring because it took too long. However, it appears that she is trying to get her life together and has graduated high school. Good for her!
What happened to Rachel Jeantel was not a matter of a jury falsely judging a book by it’s cover. In 2013 when she took the witness stand Rachel’s book was her cover, no more, no less. Was she smart, no. Was she well versed, not on your life.
‘Creepy a** cracker is following me’
Rachel Jeantel Can’t Read Letter She ‘Wrote’ About Shooting: ‘I don’t read cursive’
Trayvon Trainwreck – Star Prosecuting Witness Implodes on the Stand – Rachel Jeantel
That is obvious, otherwise she would not have felt the need to change and better herself. People criticized her for her actions and the way she talked because they were horrified by your actions and speech that you thought nothing of. Personally, I blamed at the time the prosecutors more than I did Jeantel because I could never have imagined anyone thinking that she would be a good witness. More so, did they do any coaching?
We can only hope that something good comes from the George Zimmerman murder trail and maybe that is that Rachel Jeantel woke up, grew up and got her life on track.
