It is unbelievable the scum that Faux News trolls up to be their “guests”…
Vice co-founder and frequent Fox News guest Gavin McInnes was attempting to praise his son’s verbal and intellectual dexterity on “The Gavin McInnes Show” earlier this week, but ended up revealing more about himself than his progeny.
“My son,” McInnes began, “says all this awesome shit and wife gets to enjoy him more than I do. He was watching some documentary about those monkeys that are most like us — they’re monogamous and cool and they wear suits and they go to work and they use umbrellas and they play cards.”
“They are the most human-acting apes,” he explained. “Anyway, my son’s watching it, and he’s eating popcorn, and he thinks he recognizes one of them from another movie.”
“He goes, ‘Oh, I like this,’” McInnes said with a lisp, adding that his son has one, so he’s simply making fun of him on a nationally syndicated radio program. “‘Oh, I like this monkey actress’ — which is what I said when Jada Pinkett Smith did her video about the Oscars.”
It really is past time that the justice system goes after these scumbags that create fake videos destroying peoples lives. They let Jame O’Keeffe off with it when he manufactured videos of Acorn, and they let Brietbart get away with it destroying a woman’s life.
I think it’s time to lock the scum up in prisons with other criminals for a long, long time.
A Houston grand jury that was investigating accusations of criminal misconduct against Planned Parenthood on Monday instead indicted the leader of an anti-abortion group that recorded covert videos of the organization’s employees.
Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said David Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress, faces a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to buying human tissue.
Sandra Merritt, one of Daleiden’s employees, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.
The grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast of any wrongdoing.
“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” Anderson said in a statement. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said, however, that the inspector general of the state’s Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas attorney general’s office would continue to investigate Planned Parenthood’s actions. “Nothing about today’s announcement in Harris County impacts the state’s ongoing investigation,” Abbott said in a statement. “The State of Texas will continue to protect life, and I will continue to support legislation prohibiting the sale or transfer of fetal tissue.”
The indictment did not reveal how the Center for Medical Process manipulated documents. But earlier this month, Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit against the video creators, asserting the group broke several federal laws in its campaign to defame the health-care centers with mail fraud, invasion of privacy, illegal secret recording and trespassing.
A warrant for Daleiden was issued Monday evening, according to the Harris County District Clerk’s website.
Time for a little Backstabbers…
“Will this race card give me health benefits?”
Poet Crystal Valentine has perfectly summed up the absurdity of the so-called “race card.”
The Bronx-born slam poet performed a poem titled “Questions for Fox News Regarding the Race Card,” in October at the Individual World Poetry Slam. She had some poignant things to ask of the network that often accuses black people of “playing the race card.”
“If in the event that I am stopped and frisked, can I pull out my race card? Will this race card increase my chances of survival?”
In a video of the performance, posted by Button Poetry earlier this month, Valentine goes on to emphasize the ways in which “pulling the race card” (i.e. calling attention to racism and oppression) often does nothing to actually help black people.
“Will this race card give me health benefits?” continues. “How about Obamacare? Will it reimburse me for my cousin’s casket? Will it unbury his body? Will it remove his name from a tombstone?”
Have to feel sorry for the Irish, though…
It could be Ellis Island in reverse for Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.
The pugnacious pundit has vowed he will quit the United States for his ancestral homeland of Ireland if Bernie Sanders is elected president.
Sanders’ plans to expand Medicare and Affordable Care would mean “it would be much more than it is now,” O’Reilly scoffed on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday.
“And you know, look, I’m fleeing,” he warned. “If Bernie Sanders gets elected president, I’m fleeing. I’m going to Ireland. And they already know it.”
But no one in Ireland knows that O’Reilly – who has an estimated net worth of $85 million – has been contemplating becoming a tax exile there. Some Irish pundits are already claiming he’d be as welcome as someone who has just passed gas in a space suit.
Knowing that the thought of him shipping off to the Emerald Isle was probably delighting his critics on both sides of the Atlantic, O’Reilly added: “I shouldn’t say it publicly because that will get Sanders more votes. But I’m not going to pay 90 percent of my income to that guy. I’m sorry. I’m not doing it.”
O’Reilly might want to take a closer look at the nation he’s planning on fleeing to however. Ireland is the first country in the world to vote in favor of marriage equality for gays and its health and social welfare programs can make Bernie Saunders look like a fiscal conservative.
Perhaps instead of a world map, O’Reilly and other deep pocketed patriots might be better off looking for a time machine?
It’s the fourth time the Irish American pundit has threatened to quit the states and move overseas over taxes. In 2011, he vowed to retire if his income taxes went over 50 percent and to stop investing if his capital gains taxes went over 20 percent.
Then in 2012, he vowed to move his money out of the country rather than pay higher taxes. That same month, he had also threatened to stop “aggressively putting any money in the market.”
$85 million still isn’t enough apparently. You can only buy so many falafel’s on 15 million a year.
Megyn interviews Tavis Smiley. Tavis masterfully turns Megyn’s arguments back upon themselves again and again, as Megyn confuses symbols with reality.
Did President Obama miss opportunities? Yes, from the beginning in not realizing the depth and scope or Republican racism, and acting to counter that directly. Leading to the losses in 2010, based on his party’s perceived inability to lead, and allowing Republicans to dominate the megaphone. Are black folks worse off today because of that strategy failure…Yes. But it misses the point of who engineered that situation – and that in vast majority rests upon the shoulders of a Republican led Congress.
Megyn Kelly kept trying to talk about the political optics of race, Smiley kept on returning to the substance
On “The Kelly File” Monday evening, host Megyn Kelly spoke to PBS’s Tavis Smiley about the state of race relations in America today, which according to a recent Gallup poll are worse now than when the president first took office.
Smiley opened by noting that this is largely the Republican’s fault, as they have made the president’s race a divisive issue by other means.
“But people were crying the night he was elected in Chicago,” Kelly replied, “and I don’t want to say he was ‘The Messenger,’ but this was a guy who could change things.”
Smiley said that we will “debating unto time immemorial whether or not the right move was to go after jobs or healthcare first.”
“The healthcare was divisive,” Kelly replied.
“It’s not just divisive, I think it was the right thing to do ultimately, I’m just not sure I would have led with that,” Smiley said.
“That one cut to the heart,” Kelly agreed, “people were scared — but on the subject of race, are we better off now than we were seven years ago?” Kelly seemed intent on speaking about race relations as a political issue, but Smiley deftly returned to the subject to the actual lives of actual black people.
“On every major economic issue, black Americans have lost ground,” Smiley replied. “For the last ten years, it’s not been good for black folk. The debate’s going to be whether he wasn’t bold enough, or whether he obstructed.”
“I think the answer’s ‘both,’” Smiley added. “Historians are going to have a field day juxtaposing how in the era of the first black president, the bottom fell out for black America. Black people are still politically marginalized, socially manipulated, and economically exploited.”
Kelly again attempted to goad Smiley into a conversation about the optics of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying that Obama’s “tried to walk a line on that,” referring to the president’s support for police and “law and order.”
“I think law enforcement has diminished itself,” Smiley replied, explaining that turning the subject of police abuses into a racial issue is precisely the problem with the conversation Kelly was attempting to have with him.
