“Next week the Obama Administration will allow Ahmadinejad, Castro, Chavez, Gaddafi and several other international thugs into New York City to speak in front of the United Nations General Assembly. However, one country’s president will not be allowed into the United States.
President Roberto Micheletti from Honduras will not be allowed to enter into America. The US has suspended the visa policy in Honduras.
For the first time in this country’s history, our leaders in government are siding with Marxists Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, Raul Castro and Evo Morales against a democratic foreign leader.”
Before the Presidential election, we were told it’s wrong to judge candidate Obama by his radical friends and associates. Now President Obama chooses to recognize radical international leaders and reject democratic friends. Can we judge him now?
Hannah and James visit ACORN’s office in San Diego:
Andrew Breitbart: “They [ACORN] seem to be experts at facilitating crime.”
Breitbart also said no ACORN office kicked James and Hannah out based on the fact that they were doing something nefarious.
The White House is already distancing itself from ACORN. Obama, both as a candidate and as President, has a history of throwing allies under the bus when they become inconvenient. ACORN has become very inconvenient.
Big Government also reports the San Bernardino Police Department is investigating an alleged homicide discussed by the ACORN representative in the first video, above. The linked police report states the representative’s ex-husbands are alive. That’s good news for her and for them.
Also, BigGovernment’s editor said it has more videos to release.
“Where were the real reporters on this story? You know what, investigative media: Where the hell were you? You know who broke this story? These two. You’re telling me that two kids from the cast of High School Musical 3 can break this story with a video camera and their grandmother’s fake chinchilla coat and you got nothing? They did it for $3,000.00. That’s Blitzer’s monthly beard wet vac budget. It probably cost CNN that much just to turn on their hologram machine. I’m a fake journalist and I’m embarrassed these guys scooped me. Let’s get to work people.”
The Council includes many prominent Democrats, including the man who helped President Obama Transition Team, John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress; former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend; Andrew Stern, International President of the Service Employees International Union; and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros.
For the week of September 7-13, the battle over health care reform accounted for 32% of the newshole, according to the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. That equals the previous high-water mark in PEJ’s News Coverage Index, which monitors the agenda of the mainstream media. That occurred during the week of August 10-16, when angry town hall confrontations were driving the press narrative.
Last week, the event fueling media attention was President Obama’s September 9 prime time address to Congress. In much of the coverage, the speech was depicted as a crucial attempt to regain momentum after a month when Obama opponents seemed to assume the upper hand in the message/political wars. But as it turned out, Obama had to share the media’s post-speech post-mortems with Republican Congressman Joe Wilson, who heckled the President with the now famous “you lie” shout.
That is as favorable a media position as Pres. Obama is likely to have on the issue: the telegenic orator’s made-for-TV joint session of Congress, with the made-to-order villain who called the president a liar (or so the establishment media would report). In contrast, the prior peak week of August 10-16 featured heavy coverage of “death panels” and town hall confrontations.
In off-the-record comments before a CNBC interview, President Obama described Kanye West as a “jackass” for interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs. TMZ has the audio here.
Obama is in hot water for calling West a jackass but ABC’s Terry Moran is in hotter water for tweeting it off a CNBC video feed. (By the way, how many networks share live video feeds, and why don’t they have rules about using a rival’s product?) I thought Obama sounded about as normal as I’ve ever heard him — he sounded like a person instead of a professor — until he referred to himself in the third person:
“Obama: The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What’s he doing up there?
Question: Why did he do that?
Obama: He’s a jackass. [Laughter] No, now — this
— all this stuff — I’m assuming all this stuff. Where’s the pool?
Come on guys. Cut the President some slack. I got a lot of other stuff on my plate.”
I think the media has already cut the President plenty of slack.
