MSNBC: Saying "Socialist" Is Racist. But Leftist Thugs Attacking a Black Man, calling him the N-Word & Stomping His Face, Not Newsworthy

MSNBC anchor Carlos Watson reported today that using the word "socialist" was just like using the n-word:

Sadly, MSNBC forgot to report on how a black man in St. Louis was beaten by Leftist thugs, called n*gger and stomped on.

If MSNBC really wanted to report on racism you'd think they might want to mention that story.

As Mark Steyn said: "Gotta love this ‘post-racial America’: Democrat union heavies can beat up a black guy using racial epithets and leave him in a wheelchair unable to speak – and happily (unlike, say, a black Harvard professor being asked for picture ID) it’s not ’symbolic’ of anything at all. Not a Sharpton in sight to speak up for Mr Gladney’s, whose only shot at fame is an entry in The Guinness Book Of Records under ‘Least Famous Black Hate-Crime Victim In America’."

FACT vs FICTION: Kenneth Gladney Corrects the Leftist Lies About the SEIU Attack That Put Him In the Hospital

False-- Kenneth was hired by conservatives to stir up the violent attack that put him in the hospital. Kenneth was there to hand out and sell merchandise.

False-- Kenneth was recently laid off. Kenneth was unemployed.

False-- Kenneth does not have medical insurance. He is covered under his wife's plan.

False-- Kenneth started the violence. SEIU Public Service Director of Local 2000 Elston McGowan who claims he was the victim is twice Kenneth's size.

True-- SEIU members attacked him. At least 3 members attacked Kenneth and 1 member smashed a woman in the face.

True-- Kenneth was hurt and spent the night in the hospital.

97.1 FM Radio Host Dana Loesch interviewed Kenneth Gladney and his lawyer Dave Brown on her Sunday radio show. Kenneth and David set the record straight for the Leftists lying about Kenneths situation:

For some reason Kenneth's insurance situation (he is covered under his wife's insurance plan) has dominated the Far Left blogs... The fact that Kenneth was beaten, kicked and called a n*gger by Obama-supporting SEIU members does not faze them a bit.

White House 'Reality Check’ Web Site Claims Health Care Reform ‘Would Not Add One Penny to Deficit’ cnsnews.com (Now Scrubbed of claim)

CNSNews.com) – A new Web site launched Monday by the Obama administration to rebut alleged disinformation about the administration's efforts to reform the health care system claims that reform “would not add one penny to the deficit"--despite the fact that the two health care reform bills that have been analyzed by the Congressional Budget Office are predicted by the CBO to increase the national debt by $239 billion and $1.042 trillion respectively.

The administration, meanwhile, has not produced any health-care reform legislation that has been independently determined to be deficit-neutral.

Appearing on CNN yesterday, Linda Douglass, communications director for the White House Office of Health Reform, said that the new Web site that premiered today has been designed to defeat disinformation and make sure people "can get the facts" about health care reform.

Somali Islamists pull out gold teeth of 'sinners' (Times of India)

MOGADISHU: Residents of a coastal town in southern Somalia are living by the skin of their teeth, quite literally. Somali Islamist group al Shabaab is forcibly removing gold and silver teeth from residents in southern Somalia because it says they contravene the strict law of Islam, residents said on Monday.

Residents in Marka say al Shabaab has been rounding up anyone seen with a silver or gold tooth and taking them to a masked man who then rips them out using basic tools. "I never thought al Shabaab would see my denture as a sin. They took me to their station and removed my silver tooth," resident Bashir said.

Trinkets that stick it to Obama start to sell (Washington times)

In the political paraphernalia department, "Yes, we can" is becoming "No, he can't."

Anti-Obama memorabilia -- from T-shirts to bumper stickers to buttons -- is increasingly emerging in the marketplace as the president's economic and health care policies polarize supporters and detractors.

While "Mama for Obama" was a popular slogan during the 2008 election cycle, that design has been retooled with angry and fickle disenchantment: "To the Mama for Obama -- thanks for the tax hike." The "Audacity of Hope," the title of Mr. Obama's popular book, has been replaced by the "Audacity of Hype."

Will Obama pay the price for cutting Medicare? Washington Examiner)

In the health care debate, Barack Obama is getting away with the rhetorical equivalent of murder.
To pay for the bulk of his proposed remake of the health care system, the president has a two-part plan. Half the money would come from tax increases, and the other half from reduced spending on Medicare.

Obama proposes to come up with improvements in the vast Medicare system that will allow him to extend health care coverage to millions of currently uncovered people, make no cuts in existing Medicare benefits, and save money in the process.

"We will find the money through savings and efficiencies within the health care system," Obama said at his July 23 news conference.

Just Announced on Greta's Show on FOX. The word has been received by FOX from the Wall Street Journal that Congress has scrapped the plans to purchase the eight new jets.

Greta congratulated the American Public and the politicians who opposed this spending.

The original request was "...for $220 million to buy four passenger jets, including two that are currently being leased by the Air Force, to replace a fleet of older planes. The article continues: "

Before leaving town for the August break, House lawmakers doubled the aircraft order to eight, at a total cost of $550 million."

Arizona’s Budget Breakthrough (An alternative to California’s tax and spend model)WSJ

Perhaps states are starting to learn the right fiscal lessons from the red-ink blowouts in high-tax California and New York.

Today, the legislature in Arizona will vote on a tax reform designed to entice more employers and high-income taxpayers to the state.

Sponsored by Republican Governor Jan Brewer, the plan would cut state property taxes, the corporate tax and personal income taxes, in exchange for a temporary rise in the sales tax.

Soros Pledges $5 Million for Obama Healtcare Marketing Push (Economic Policy Journal)

Oligarch George Soros is sending a $5 million check to Health Care For America Now, the leading coalition of pro-reform groups, unions and providers, reports Greg Sargent.

Among the 21 members of HCAN's steering committee are ACORN, MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress and the Campaign for America’s Future (CAF).

CAF is another institution that has received funding from Soros and the Rockefeller Family Fund. (The Rockefellers have always been major investors in the pharmaceutical industry, and have always been instrumental in directing legislation in a direction that benefits there pharma investments.)

CAF also pushes for national health care as one means to transform the United States into a European social welfare state. Co-founder Robert Borosage previously served as director of the overtly Marxist Institute for Policy Studies, while co-founder Roger Hickey also co-founded the Economic Policy Institute.

Other CAF co-founders include socialist columnist Harold Meyerson, Sixties radical Tom Hayden, socialist feminist Barbara Ehrenreich, Service Employees International Union president Andrew Stern, AFL-CIO president John J. Sweeney, Jesse Jackson, and Julian Bond, Sargent reports.

The Real AstroTurf (IBD)

Free Speech: The White House and Congress claim the anti-ObamaCare uprising is artificially organized.

But the violent — even racist — union counterattacks, urged on by Democrats, are the real Rent-a-Mobs.


Newsweek columnist and TV pundit Eleanor Clift last week gave her Democratic friends a warning:

"Unless Obama and his surrogates find the language to reassure the majority of Americans with health insurance that they will be better off under his reform plan, the AstroTurf opposition we see playing out now on our TV screens could morph into the real thing."

Why Most Journalists Are Democrats: A View from the Soviet Socialist Trenches Pychologytoday.com

(SNIP) As it turns out, the preponderance of journalists are Democrats.

And socialism, with its idyllic, “progressive” programs, has formed an increasingly important role in Democratic policies.

Who wants to investigate a possible dark side of your own party’s plank?


Unsurprisingly, self-selection plays an important role in choosing a job.

People choosing to do work related to prisons, for example, commonly show quite different characteristics than those who volunteer for work in helping disadvantaged youths.

Academicians have very different characteristics than CEOs—or politicians, for that matter.

Harry Stein, former ethics editor of Esquire, once said: "Journalism, like social work, tends to attract individuals with a keen interest in bettering the world.” In other words, journalists self-select based on a desire to help others. Socialism, with its “spread the wealth” mentality intended to help society’s underdogs, sounds ideal. (SNIP)

Dirty Secret No. 1 in Obamacare

Town Hall | Chuck Norris
Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government's coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development. It's outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children." The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills. The bill says that the government agents, "well-trained and competent staff," would "provide parents with knowledge of age-appropriate child development in cognitive, language, social, emotional, and motor domains ... modeling, consulting, and coaching on...

Now Read This -- Magazines aren't dead ... at least not all of them. A look at a few page turners.

This has been a plague year for magazines. Several periodicals have closed: Conde Nast Portfolio, Domino, Blender. McGraw-Hill has put BusinessWeekup for sale. As we speak, McKinsey & Co. consultants are prowling the halls of glossy and glamorous high-brow publisher Conde Nast (Vogue, Vanity Fair, TheNew Yorker) in search of cost cuts.

Early targets include newspaper subscriptions and chauffeured cars. The remaining magazines have gone on a diet. Among the 243 magazines tracked by the Publishers Information Bureau, ad pages plunged 28 percent in the first half of 2009 from the first half of 2008.

This week, industry forecaster Veronis Suhler Stevenson predicted the magazine industry's revenues will decline at a 6.6 percent for the years 2008 through 2013.

But it wasn't all doom and gloom. According to PIB, 12 magazines managed to attract more ad pages in this year's first six months than they did in the first half of 2008. Which publications are among the fortunate dozen? And how did they manage to do it?

Among the titles worth noting: Fitness, Cooking With Paula Deen, The Week, OK!, Family Circle, Scholastic Parent & Child, Organic Gardening, Sports Illustrated for Kids, Country Weekly, and Muscle & Fitness.

President Obama, attending a North American summit with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, vowed to pursue comprehensive U.S. immigration reform later this year with a view to enacting legislation in 2010 that would provide a "pathway to citizenship" for the 12 to 32 million illegal immigrants now in the United States.

In a joint news conference in Guadalajara with Mexican President Felipe Calderón and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Mr. Obama said he regards immigration reform as being in the long-term interest of the United States. "We have a broken immigration system," he told the press. "Nobody denies it."

Bombs away: ABC's 'Shark Tank' tanks. First show of the new season pulls a 1.3 in 18-49s (Media Life TV)

There’s still more than a month until the new television season officially kicks off, but already there’s a contender for first bomb: ABC’s “Shark Tank.”

The new reality show, about a slew of entrepreneurs competing for backing from a group of investors, tanked on Sunday, becoming one of the lowest-rated premieres of the summer and putting its survival until September in doubt.

“Shark” averaged a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating Sunday, according to Nielsen overnights, just 0.2 ahead of the premiere of the disappointing “Defying Gravity” the previous week.

The premiere did air against some tougher-than-usual Sunday competition, including the first preseason NFL game of the season on NBC, which was up compared to the previous year, and the premiere of CBS’s “There Goes the Neighborhood,” which averaged a 1.5

Orlando imam lies about Islam in Ohio custody case

Last month, 17-year old Rafiq Bary disappeared from her New Albany, Ohio home. Now she has reappeared and stated in a Florida court yesterday that she is in fear for her life.

Her crime? Converting from Islam to Christianity. Having taken shelter in Orlando with a Christian couple she met online, she's now at the center of a custody battle.

Other sites are ably covering this story, but what struck me was this quote that appears in today's Orlando Sentinel:

Imam Hatim Hamidullah, with the Islamic Society of Central Florida, said the Muslim faith does not call for a father to hurt his child, should she convert to another religion.

"It is not Islam for the father to bring harm upon his blood daughter or any other human being because of anger," he said. "Our position is to exhaust all measures that would bring peace and harmony back to the family," Hamidullah said. "Being angry and threatening the life of someone is not one of those methods."
The imam, of course, is lying through his teeth. In virtually every school of Islamic law (shariah), her death is DEMANDED for apostasy from Islam. She has every reason to be in fear for her life.

Elective surgeries to be cut by 35 per cent during Olympics [Canada]
Times Colonist

METRO VANCOUVER - Upwards of 2,500 patients waiting for surgery for everything from blocked arteries to cancer to hernias will find their elective surgeries postponed during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

In a pair of decisions just now becoming public, the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health Authorities say they have decided to cut by 35 per cent the number of elective surgeries performed over a one-month period in February and March, 2010.

Most of the surgeries - 2,000 in all - were supposed to take place in the busy Fraser region that stretches from Burnaby to Hope. Another 450 or more were scheduled for the Vancouver Coastal authority, not including the Providence Health system that covers St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.

The decisions also come as the provincial health minister, Kevin Falcon, told the province's six health regions they are expected to cut $360 million from their operating budgets next year and hold the line on costs.

The part of Obama’s plan that would require death counseling every five years is just a precursor to a state legally killing off old, costly, undesirables. They legally kill of the unborn, and now Oregon legally kills off the old and sick. There was a steady lobby for the so-called death with dignity. Watch for it, these people are in the wings, ready to offer assistance with their expertise at convincing people to off themselves.
