Minorities are obese because of….racism

10 Sep

According to a new study minorities are obese because of racism.

“‘When you are exposed to negative stereotypes, you may gravitate more toward unhealthy foods as opposed to healthy foods,’ said Luis Rivera, the experimental social psychologist who conducted the study.'”

You know, I am going to have to agree with this study.  The fact that there are no obese white people is proof that this study is accurate.  If any obese white people start popping up, I guess another study will be necessary.

ABC Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Scrubbed of Terror Reference

10 May

 

 

More on this from ABC’s John Karl:

When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.

This is a paragraph drafted by the CIA in its earlier versions of the talking points:

“The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya.  These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador’s convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks.”

After reading that paragraph, State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland took issue with including that information because it

“could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either?”

Naturally, that paragraph was removed.

 

Is Obama “Too Brainy to be President”?

11 May

You really have to read this article in the L.A. Times to believe it.  This is 100% detachment from reality. (emphasis mine)

To many who were feverishly devoted to Obama’s candidacy four years ago, what was most exciting wasn’t just the idea that American voters could elect a black man. It was the idea that we could elect — and be represented by — someone who was unapologetically intellectual. But in the current political climate, intellectual can too often equal ineffectual. Thanks to a system that’s broken by partisanship and pandering to the lowest common denominator, being in politics — even being the president — may have less to do with holding your ground than holding your nose.

It’s hard not to come away from the Vanity Fair article without feeling, strangely enough, that the White House is holding Obama back. The gulf between the brilliant young man who wanted to change the world and the stymied president who can barely pass a piece of legislation, the cosmopolitan wearer of the sarong and the lock-step wearer of the flag pin, suggests he could have served the American people far more effectively if he weren’t bogged down being the leader of the free world.

In other words, it’s not necessarily a thinking man’s game now. Tell a smart kid he might grow up to be president and, these days, he just may tell you he has better things to do.

The most glaring part of this piece (aside from the laughable assertion that the “White House is holding Obama back” comment) is this statement:

Thanks to a system that’s broken by partisanship and pandering to the lowest common denominator, being in politics — even being the president — may have less to do with holding your ground than holding your nose.

Seriously?  Is there anyone more partisan than Obama?  Has there ever been a President who pandered more to the lowest common denominator in our society?  Pandering is practically his entire reelection platform.  All he’s been doing for the past few months is promising what he’s going to give to certain groups and claiming that Romney will take it away.  It has been disgusting, small and beneath the Office of the Presidency.

I guess the writer of this piece never heard some of these comments from Obama since becoming President:

  • “Here’s the problem: It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.”  Barack Obama on banks, March 2009
  • “A Republican majority in Congress would mean ‘hand-to-hand combat’ on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy.” Barack Obama, October 6, 2010

Ah, yes, nothing but high-minded brilliance on display from Obama there.

Furthermore, just think of what Obama has been focusing on lately while the economy, and the American people continue to struggle:  class warfare (Buffett Rule), contraception, “war on women,” gay marriage and student loan interest rates.  He will do anything to keep people distracted from focusing on the economy and his record.

Obama has been the exact opposite of what he promised he would be:  a uniter.  People were so tired of the business-as-usual politicians and actually thought that he meant what he said back in the 2008 campaign…so they gave him a chance.  They thought he actually looked at the country as the United States of America, not just blue states and red states.  Unfortunately, he has sought to divide this country pretty much from the time he was elected.  And it has only gotten worse.  Most analysts and pundits are predicting that this will be the ugliest Presidential election in history.  It’s hard to imagine it getting more in the gutter or more ridiculous than it already is.

But from what I’ve seen from The One so far, nothing is going to surprise me.

“Some occupiers are more equal than others”

21 Oct

If you’ve never read Animal Farm by George Orwell, you should.  Hot Air correctly points out that the OWS protesters are becoming what they despise.  The protest organizers in New York City are getting worried about the complaints coming in from the local residents, who are growing tired of the drum beating, harassment and public defecation. Apparently, the protest organizers are cracking down on their own people:

“But the drums were fun. They brought in publicity and money. Many non-facilitators were infuriated by the decision and claimed that it had been forced through the General Assembly.

“They’re imposing a structure on the natural flow of music,” said Seth Harper, an 18-year-old from Georgia. “The GA decided to do it … they suppressed people’s opinions. I wanted to do introduce a different proposal, but a big black organizer chick with an Afro said I couldn’t.”

To Shane Engelerdt, a 19-year-old from Jersey City and self-described former “head drummer,” this amounted to a Jacobinic betrayal. “They are becoming the government we’re trying to protest,” he said. “They didn’t even give the drummers a say … Drumming is the heartbeat of this movement. Look around: This is dead, you need a pulse to keep something alive.”

Suddenly, the drummers looked from pig to man and man to pig and couldn’t tell the difference“:

“The drummers claim that the finance working group even levied a percussion tax of sorts, taking up to half of the $150-300 a day that the drum circle was receiving in tips. ‘Now they have over $500,000 from all sorts of places,’ said Engelerdt. ‘We’re like, what’s going on here? They’re like the banks we’re protesting.’”

And the last, and most awesome part, is the protest organizers are telling the animals protesters that they can no longer talk to the press:

As the communal sleeping bag argument between Lauren Digion and Sage Roberts threatened to get out of hand, a facilitator in a red hat walked by, brow furrowed. “Remember? You’re not allowed to do any more interviews,” he said to Digion. She nodded and went back to work. But when Roberts shouted, “Don’t tell me what to do!” Digion couldn’t hold back.

Someone has to be told what to do,” she said. “Someone needs to give orders. There’s no sense of order in this f*****g place.”

More here in a piece titled “The Organizers vs. the Organized in Zuccotti Park.”

“All occupiers are equal — but some occupiers are more equal than others”

So, the OWS organizers are now taking tip money from fellow protesters and they are telling them who they can and cannot talk to.  You really can’t make this stuff up!

You will not believe what Jesse Jackson, Jr. wants Obama to do

13 Oct

Jesse Jackson, Jr. is officially out of his mind. He was interviewed yesterday and was asked about what should be done to solve the unemployment problem. His answer:

“On several occasions now, we’ve seen … the Congress is in rebellion, determined, as Abraham Lincoln said, to wreck or ruin at all costs. I believe … in the direct hiring of 15 million unemployed Americans at $40,000 a head, some more than $40,000, some less than $40,000 — that’s a $600 billion stimulus. It could be a five-year program. For another $104 billion, we bailout all of the states … for another $100 billion, we bailout all of the cities,” he said.

Why CNN Has No Credibility. “Crosshairs” vs “Take These Sons of Bitches Out”

7 Sep

 

This is exactly why CNN barely has an audience.  The first clip is from January 2011, shortly after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, AZ, where John King issued an on-air apology when a guest on his show used the word “crosshairs” metaphorically when talking about the Chicago mayoral race.  This, of course, was back when liberals in the media and elected Democrats were trying to paint Conservatives and the Tea Party as extremists, who use violent rhetoric to work their followers into a frenzy, leading to violence.

I was actually embarrassed for John King when I saw this:

 

Let’s fast forward a waaay into the future (a whole 8 months) to see how CNN’s John King feels about the comments made by James Hoffa of the Teamsters Union at a Labor Day event, where he said of the Tea Party:

“Everybody here has a vote….If we go back and we keep the eye on the prize. Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to America where we belong.”

What did John King think about that comment?  Let’s see: (in the interest of time, he does not bring it up ONCE.  Nothing.)

 

John King does ask Hoffa what he thought of Obama’s speech and allows Hoffa to continue to attack the Tea Party, calling them “unreasonable.”

I think it’s fair to say that we can officially ignore all Democrats and their accomplices in the media if they ever complain about statements made by a Republican or member of the Tea Party.  They have lost all credibility in this matter.
