Sebastian Gorka out of White House after controversies over neo-Nazi connections and phony Ph.D.

Controversial White House adviser Sebastian Gorka is stepping down from his role in the Trump administration to take an unspecified position in “the war of ideas,” said TheHill.com on Sunday.

The announcement comes after Gorka’s Ph.D. was revealed to be fraudulently awarded and his connections to a Hungarian neo-Nazi group were exposed by the Jewish Daily Forward.

The Washington Examiner said, “Gorka’s new role will deal with the ‘war of ideas’ involved in countering radical Islamic extremism, a senior administration official said, and will entail an appointment to a federal agency.”

Rumors swirled this week that Gorka was on his way out, that White House personnel were attempting to find him a new position, but that the situation was proving to be “a pain in the ass.”

The Hungarian-English self-styled “expert” in Islamic terrorism came to the Trump administration by way of Breitbart.com, where he and his wife were both editors writing about the threat purportedly posed to western society by radical Muslims.

However, University of North Carolina professor Andrew Reynolds found upon doing a bit of research on Gorka’s credentials that Gorka fudged his way through a correspondence course at a Hungarian university that “did not rank among the top 1,000 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.”

Gorka’s Ph.D., said Reynolds, “is about as legitimate as if he had been awarded it by Trump University.”

Even more troubling are Gorka’s links to far-right Hungarian extremists and anti-Semites. At President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Gorka wore the medal awarded to his father by “a knightly order of merit founded in 1920 by Admiral Miklos Horthy, Hungary’s longtime anti-Semitic ruler and Hitler’s ally during World War II,” said the Jewish Daily Forward.

Is the Alt-Right Media Under Russian Control? A Treasonous Cabal in the White-Right

It appears the Russians have been using the alt-right media to promote and advance fake news stories in a disinformation campaign. It is unknown at this point if there is any collusion between the far right sites and the Russians, or if there is, how much. Specifically Brietbart and Alex Jones “Infowars” have bee extensively penetrated and used as vehicles to promote anti-Democrat propaganda and fake news.

Can you say the words “Vast White Wing Conspiracy”?

The Russians easily are posting propaganda and fake news in the white right media, through an internet tool called a “bot”. Much of the information posted on these sites come from the KGB.

There is no evidence that any of the far right sites has done anything to stop it.

Raising the issue of collusion between these folks and Russia to reach certain political goals – such as the Chumph’s election.

It is inconceivable that this sort of broad based disinformation action by the Russians without the full support, collaboration, and permission of the American actors involved.

This treason goes a lot deeper than just the Chump’s Russian owned campaign. Putin’s Bitch is making claims like the now thoroughly debunked “Obama wiretapped the Trump Towers”, directly sourced from media controlled by the Russian KGB spy agency, and Putin’s desk. There is more than coincidental information leading to the existance of collusion between the white right media and the neo-communists,

alt-right racist and former Brietbart head, Steve Bannon, now “National Security Adviser” and the Chumph’s right hand man, now may provide a direct link from the White House to the Russian KGB.

Breitbart and Infowars under investigation for ties to Russia: report

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.

Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.

The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on conservative internet sites such as Breitbart News and InfoWars, as well as on the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, the sources said. Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Russian operation to influence last year’s elections.

Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook.

The investigation of the bot-engineered traffic, which appears to be in its early stages, is being driven by the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, whose inquiries rarely result in criminal charges and whose main task has been to reconstruct the nature of the Kremlin’s cyberattack and determine ways to prevent another.

An FBI spokesman declined to comment on the inquiry into the use of bots.

Russia-generated bots are one piece of a cyber puzzle that counterintelligence agents have sought to solve for nearly a year to determine the extent of the Moscow government’s electronic broadside.

“This may be one of the most highly impactful information operations in the history of intelligence,” said one former U.S. intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Bureau Director James Comey confirmed Monday at a House Intelligence Committee hearing what long has been reported: that the FBI is investigating possible links between individuals in the Trump presidential campaign and the Russian campaign to influence the election and whether there was any coordination between the two.

The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, one of multiple congressional panels examining Russia’s intervention, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that there was “circumstantial evidence of collusion.” There also is “direct evidence … of deception, and that’s where we begin the investigation,” said Rep. Adam Schiff of California.

U.S. intelligence agencies charged in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the offensive, in which cyber operatives also hacked tens of thousands of emails from Democratic National Committee staff, Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta and other Democrats.

A top priority of investigators is to determine who delivered those hacked emails to WikiLeaks, a London-based transparency site that published them online, the sources said. News stories about the emails embarrassed Clinton at key points in the campaign. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has denied that the Russian government was the source of the email dump.

As for the bots, they carried links not only to news stories but also to Democratic emails posted on WikiLeaks, especially those hacked from Podesta and made public in October, said Philip Howard, a professor at the Oxford University Internet Institute who has researched the bot attacks.

Howard said that, as an example, bots had spread links to fictional stories that accused Clinton of involvement in running a child-sex ring in the basement of a Washington pizza parlor. The posts inspired a North Carolina man to drive to Washington and fire an assault weapon in the restaurant, according to police reports.

Howard’s study of bot-generated Twitter traffic during last fall’s Trump-Clinton campaign debates showed that bot messages favorable to Trump significantly outnumbered those sympathetic to Clinton.

He said his research showed that Americans who call themselves “patriotic programmers” also activated bots to aid Trump. In interviews, they described coding the computer commands in their spare time, Howard said.

Unlike counterintelligence investigators with more cyber sleuthing capabilities, Howard has not established that Russia was the source of the bot attacks he studied.

Russia also used “trolls,” hundreds of computer operatives who pretended to be Trump supporters and posted stories or comments on the internet complimentary to Trump or disparaging to Clinton. Sources close to the inquiry said those operatives likely worked from a facility in St. Petersburg, Russia, dedicated to that tactic.

“Russian bots and internet trolls sought to propagate stories underground,” said Mike Carpenter, a former senior Pentagon official during the Obama administration whose job focused on Russia. “Those stories got amplified by fringe elements of our media like Breitbart.”

“They very carefully timed release of information to shift the news cycle away from stories that clearly hurt Mr. Trump, such as his inappropriate conduct over the years,” he said, referring to the October release of a video in which Trump bragged about grabbing women’s genitals. That event corresponded with a surge in bot-related traffic spreading anti-Clinton stories.

An additional Russian tool was the news from its prime propaganda machine, Russia Today, with a global television and digital media operation and a U.S. arm, RT America.

Last Nov. 19, Breitbart announced that its website traffic had set a record the previous 31 days with 300 million page views, driven substantially by social media.

Breitbart, which has drawn criticism for pursuing a white nationalist agenda, was formerly led by Stephen Bannon, who became chief executive officer of Trump’s election campaign last August and now serves as Trump’s strategic adviser in the White House. The news site’s former national security editor, Sebastian Gorka, was a national security adviser to Trump’s campaign and presidential transition team. He now works as a key Trump counterterrorism adviser.

Breitbart’s chief executive officer, Larry Solov, did not respond to phone and email requests seeking comment.

Bannon and Gorka have controversial profiles. Bannon has been accused of taking anti-immigrant and racist positions. Last week, the Jewish newspaper Forward reported that Gorka had taken a lifelong loyalty oath to a Hungarian far-right group that for decades was allied with the Nazi Party.

The White House declined to respond to questions about Gorka.

Breitbart is partially owned by Robert Mercer, the wealthy co-founder of a New York hedge fund and a co-owner of Cambridge Analytica, a small, London-based firm credited with giving Trump a significant advantage in gauging voter priorities last year by providing his campaign with at least 5,000 data points on each of 220 million Americans.

InfoWars is published by Alex Jones, a Texas-based conservative talk show host known for embracing conspiracy theories such as one asserting that the U.S. government was involved in the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. During the 2016 campaign, InfoWars.com was a loyal Trump public relations tool. Trump was on Jones’ show and praised his reporting.

“It’s the major source of everything,” Roger Stone, a longtime Trump confidant and campaign adviser, said last fall. Stone, who has regularly appeared on Jones’ show and was on Monday, has said he invites an FBI investigation into his campaign role. The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked Stone to preserve documents in connection with the Russian election inquiry.

Right-Wingette Brietbart Racist Pedophile Milo Booted from CPAC

ANOTHER white-wing racist pedophile.

Here, white-wing darling Milo Yiannopoulos defends men having sex with children.

Even he great white herd has had enough –

Simon & Schuster Cancels Milo Book Deal

Publishing company Simon & Schuster has cancelled a book deal for alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos, following the circulation of a video in which he condoned pedophilia. “After careful consideration @simonschuster and its @threshold_books have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos,” the company’s spokesperson Adam Rothberg tweeted on Monday. Yiannopoulos confirmed the cancellation on Facebook, writing “they cancelled my book.”

The company had previously defended its decision to offer Yiannopoulos a $250,000 book deal, saying that the book would not contain the hate speech for which Yiannopoulos is famous. But after a video of Yiannopoulos condoning sexual relationships between boys and older men went viral Sunday night, the publishing company faced renewed pressure to drop the deal.

CPAC disinvites Milo Yiannopoulos from conservative conference

Organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference have disinvited professional provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos after a video interview emerged of him appearing to condone pedophilia emerged.

“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement Monday.

Yiannopoulos, an editor at Breitbart News, said in a Facebook post on Sunday that selective editing resulted in his words being taken out of context and that he does not support pedophilia, according to Mediate.

Well-known on the political fringes, the 32-year old writer has gained more prominence with the ascension of Donald Trump and former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon into the White House.

It was Yiannopoulos’ appearance at the University of California – Berkeley and the ensuing protests that resulted in his cancellation that drew national attention and a presidential tweet.

“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump tweeted after Yiannopoulos’ speech was cancelled after violent protests broke out on the campus.

The reaction was one of the reasons for this appearance at CPAC.

The Racist Alt-Right Gets Their First Seat in the Whites Only House

Of the first two Chumph hires…One is a racist POS…

Image result for Steve Bannon racist

Trump names Priebus as chief of staff, Bannon as chief strategist

President-elect Donald Trump announced on Sunday that he has chosen Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his White House chief of staff, putting his trust in an establishment figure after railing against the political establishment from the start of his candidacy.

Steve Bannon, a Breitbart News executive and leader of the so-called “alt-right” movement, will serve as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor.

 “I am thrilled to have my very successful team continue with me in leading our country,” Trump said in a statement. “Steve and Reince are highly qualified leaders who worked well together on our campaign and led us to a historic victory. Now I will have them both with me in the White House as we work to make America great again.”

The announcement caps days of speculation about which aides will oversee the White House, roles that will be particularly important because the president-elect lacks Washington experience. In picking Priebus, Trump appears to be trying to allay concerns of congressional Republicans, many of whom have relationships with the RNC chairman. Some of them view Bannon, whose incendiary Breitbart website has aggressively targeted Ryan and the Republican establishment, with suspicion.

Brietbart Troll Who Lead Racist Attack on Leslie Jones Busted

Seems the “alt Right” has had a lot of things to say about comedian Leslie Jones – most of it racist. It irritates the white, juvenile, internet troll squad that a black woman can achieve success. A lot of that racist flack is being stirred up and directed by Brietbart, which is a “media” entity which has had a lot of problems with both the truth, and racism.

 

ABC reporter shreds Milo Yiannopoulos: ‘You’re an idiot … What grade are you in?’

ABC News reporter Terry Moran did not buy into Milo Yiannopoulos’ self-portrayal as a “virtuous troll” in an interview slated to be aired Friday on Nightline,Queerty reported.

“If Leslie Jones were right here, would you say, ‘You look like a dude’?” Moran asked.

“Yeah, probably,” said Breitbart.com’s tech editor, who was banned from Twitter after leading a harassment campaign against the comedian.

“You would say that to her,” Moran said.

“I probably would,” Yiannopoulos insisted.

“Then you’re an idiot,” Moran replied.

Yiannopoulos argued to Moran that he found the wave of racist and misogynist abusehurled at Jones in support of him “disgusting,” but rejected the idea of telling his thousands of Twitter followers at the time to back off.

“Does Justin Bieber have an obligation to his fans?” he asked Moran. “I’m sorry for being popular. But I am not responsible for what 350,000 people on the Internet say. I’m responsible for what I say.”

Later in the interview, Moran berates Yiannopoulos for his sexist stances.

“You’re going to go after somebody’s body to denigrate their ideas? What grade are you in?” he asked. “Are you a 13-year-old boy? Because somebody doesn’t have a weight that you think is proper? That’s revolting.”

“I’ll tell you what’s revolting,” Yiannopoulos responded. “What’s revolting is the body positivity movement. What’s revolting is this idea now that you can tell women that they’ll be healthy at any size.”

English BLM women…Its time for you to do the world a favor and take this POS out behind the proverbial woodshed.

Trumpazoid Neutron Dance… Getting Laughed off the Air

First up on the Chumph tap dance parade – Hillary is a bigot for condemning racists…Chumph surrogate Scotties Nell Hughes.

The question in my mind is…Why is CNN paying this racist POS?

Scottie Nell Hughes: Hillary is the ‘definition of bigotry’ because she’s biased against racists

CNN contributor and Trump campaign surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes accused Hillary Clinton of the meeting the “definition of bigotry” for speaking out against racists and white supremacy.

During a Sunday panel discussion on CNN, MTV correspondent Jamil Smith argued that Trump’s hiring of Breitbart chief Steve Bannon showed that GOP presidential campaign was a “rebranding of white supremacy.”

“I would say that [Breitbart is] part of the white supremacist machine,” Smith asserted. “They are trying to make sure these views become mainstream. And I think, through Trump, they are finding a way to do that.”

Hughes, however, accused the media of “redefining what fair means in this election.”

“Hillary Clinton’s problem, she’s having a problem with engagement,” Hughes opined. “And she’s worried about in November, the same very valuable demographic of the African-American vote is not going to be as engaged as they were in 2008 and 2012 to get out and vote.”

According to the pundit, Trump had been right to call Clinton a “bigot” because the term was not only about racial discrimination.

“Bigotry, if you look at the definition, it’s about someone who’s small-minded and sits there and directs hate towards a certain group,” she explained. “Hillary Clinton’s speech [attacking alt-right conservatives] was all about hate towards a group that, while my fellow counterpart might consider them to be very racist, it’s the exact opposite.”

“These are God-fearing, baby-loving, gun-toting, military-supporting, school choice-advocating Americans!” Hughes added. “And just because maybe there might be some, a part of a very small fringe group [of white supremacists] that read Breitbart — by sitting there and saying the entire website is white supremacy is kind of ridiculous as saying just because you have people that are anarchists and communists that read the Huffington Post, calling that newspaper establishment, [is like] saying that they’re pro-anarchy and they’re against the United States government.”

Smith clarified Breitbart’s role in promoting white supremacy.

“What they present is the view of the white supremacist mentality through their coverage,” he observed. “It’s not necessarily saying, ‘Well, everyone who works there is a white supremacist.’ I don’t know that.”

“The point is to say, what kind of viewpoint did they reflect? And it’s undeniable that they reflect a white supremacist view if you looked over their coverage over the last several years.”

Then we have Trump Lawn Ornament Katrina Pierson…

Getting laughed at …again

Racist Brietbart/Trump Trolls Attack Leslie Jones

If you have been keeping an eye on entertainment media this year, 48 year old Leslie Jones has had a breakout year. Starring in the all-female cast of the Gostbusters reboot, a hilarious series of Allstate Commercials, and a gig as “Americas Biggest Olympics Fan”. To my view, Leslie has performed as about the funniest Comedian on TV the last year. Her perfomances have been a breath of fresh air.

Being black, female, and not a Barbie Doll (AKA Stacy Who?) the “alt-right”, made up of Internet Trolls, Breitbart followers, and Chumphazoids had to try and destroy her….

Be strong Leslie – I for one, love what you are doing, love your attitude, and your humor.

They want to destroy Leslie Jones: Harassment targeting “Ghostbusters” star exposes the ugliness driving the new right

The attacks against Jones lay bare the resentments fueling what is euphemistically known as the “alt-right”

Even for someone who has been researching and writing about misogyny for over a decade, it is hard to comprehend the level of obsessive hate that had to go into the attack on actress Leslie Jones. The 48-year-old comedian and actress became a big star over the summer, with her breakout role in “Ghostbusters” and her public stint as America’s funniest Olympics enthusiast.

But to the racist, misogynist internet, just letting Jones and her fans enjoy this moment could not stand. You see, Jones is black, female, and middle-aged, and therefore, in their eyes, she must be punished and humiliated for her success. On Wednesday, hackers attacked Jones’s website, replacing her regular content with stolen nude photos, private information, and racist gorilla imagery.

This comes on top of a summer-long campaign of Twitter harassment that was so vile that it drove Jones off Twitter, forcing the company — which is notoriously reluctant to do much about internet harassment — to actually take measures to stem the tide of abuse.

It is tempting, of course, to write off the attacks on Jones as the work of a few bad apples, an unfortunate artifact of an internet that allows a small number of people to get a lot of attention simply by being the absolute worst. I personally wish that were the case.

But this story goes straight back to the presidential race. You see, one of the main reasons that Jones is a favorite target of the worst people on the internet is becauseshe was chosen as one by Milo Yiannopoulos, a writer and editor at Breitbart. He spent so much time and effort riling up the rats against her that it got him suspended permanently by Twitter, in fact. And Yiannopoulos’s boss Stephen Bannon now runs the Donald Trump campaign.

Make no mistake: Yiannopoulos got his job at Breitbart not despite, but because of his skills at whipping up the sociopathic internet into a frenzy of resentment at even the hint that they might have to share the world with women and people of color.

Under Bannon, Yiannopoulos was brought on to be the editor of their supposed “tech” vertical, even though there’s no evidence that he knows much about tech and despite his history of bashing video game players.

Yiannopoulos got his gig after doing the yeoman’s work of riling up basement dwellers on Twitter, cheerleading a phenomenon known as “Gamergate,” when a bunch of misogynists ran around the internet attacking female gamers for the crimes of being critical of sexism in video games or believing they have a right to break up with a dude if they want to. His real talent is mining the resentments of reactionary losers, and encouraging them to bash any women, especially women of color, whose success reminds them of what losers they really are.

The intended message behind taunting a woman with nude pictures and racist imagery isn’t subtle: “No matter how funny and well-liked and successful you are, we are still better than you because you’re a black woman.”

This is what feminists are talking about when we say things like sexual violence and harassment aren’t really about men being sexually incontinent or bad communicators. No one accidentally hacks someone’s website with racist jokes. No one posts pictures to humiliate someone because they were confused about consent.

We live in a culture where a lot of men think that a woman’s success diminishes them. We live in a culture where a lot of white people think the same of black people’s success. We live in a culture where some white men think the best way to react to this ridiculous fear is to turn sex into a weapon to hurt women.

I want this to be a small phenomenon, but this is why one of the major parties of this country has nominated an unrepentant misogynist and bigot to be their presidential candidate.

If you want a full eyeball of how Trump Country thinks, look at the reaction of Drudge readers to this story on Twitter. It’s all racist jokes and mockery of Jones’s body and sexuality. Not a whiff of understanding that she is a human being. Not even a moment of concern for a woman who is being victimized like this, even though she has literally done nothing wrong — on the contrary, she has made a career out of trying to make people happy. Just dehumanizing, racist garbage.

They aren’t the majority of Americans. Most Americans are better than this. But if you want to know how it is that Trump still manages to pack his rallies full of people, here is your answer.

ABC “News” Trolls for Troglodytes With Brietbart

ABC “News” jumps in the toilet with Faux News with the scumbag prade as part of their “election coverage”, adding Andrew Brietbart the Pimp behind the Pimp. and sleaze behind the Shirley Sherrod smear…

Breitbart says ABC invited him to appear on broadcast television

Andrew Breitbart has released what he says is an email contradicting ABC News’ assertion that the network never planned to include him in its televised Election Night coverage.

On Friday, Breitbart’s Big Journalism website reported that Breitbart would be “featured” on ABC’s “election night coverage.” According to Big Journalism, Breitbart would be “bringing analysis live from Arizona.”

Several hours later, ABC spokesman David Ford confirmed to Media Matters that Breitbart “will be one of many voices on our air.”

After receiving heavy criticism, ABC released a statement Saturday purporting to “explain what Mr. Breitbart’s role has always been as one of our guests at our digital town hall event” [emphasis added]. According to the ABC statement, “Breitbart will not be a part of the ABC News broadcast coverage” and will instead “engage with a live, studio audience that will be closely following the election results and participating in an online-only discussion and debate.”

But on Sunday night, Breitbart insisted that wasn’t the original deal. Breitbart wrote, “I can state with absolute certainty that the verbal pitch to me to participate was punctuated by the opportunity to appear as part of ABC News’ broadcast television for the night. I was also aware that the majority of my participation — seven long hours — would be online.”

Similarly, Breitbart told The Daily Caller that “they originally pitched to me that I was going to do a hybrid of both online and broadcast.”

Van Jones and Shirley Sherrod…

This is a great op-ed piece in the NYT be Van Jones. What he is saying is what a lot of Washington insiders and business people in the Washington area are saying – that the Obama Administration has allowed itself to be paralyzed by the threat of the right-wing noise machine.

The unwillingness, or inability of the Obama Administration to stand up for their people has impacted everything in every crevice and recess of the Federal Government. Your day to day, Civil Service workers are afraid to do their jobs, because they know they could be the next Van Jones or Shirley Sherrod. They can’t afford to fight back by themselves, and to pay lawyers tens of thousands of dollars to defend them. And the Administration is utterly chickenshit and wiling to throw anyone under the bus at the simple whiff of an accusation from the right…

No matter how specious.

This administration caves to media blackmail, which the right wing knows is effective anytime they add the vector of race.

Some analysts have concluded that the problem is that the Obama White House is too white. Ergo, had this White House had ANYONE at the staff level who was black, and old enough to be  familiar with history – they would have known who Shirley Sherrod was. Further, the administration could assemble an effective counter strategy beyond just turning tail and running every time right wing bullies played the race card. My feeling about Obama since the Primaries has been he just doesn’t have that “killer instinct”. As many dollars as CEOs of major corporations spend to convince the outside world that they are “nice guys” – not one of those guys got there without carrying an metaphorical razor in the hip pocket for the throats of the opposition who can’t be “made to see reason” by other means. The only real difference between organized crime and business leadership is business leaders use lawyers and MBA types, instead of big guys with baseball bats and guns to “make you an offer you can’t refuse”.

That is what is missing in this President, that is what is missing in his staff – and that is crippling his Administration’s ability to fulfill their promises.

The New Lynching, Brought to America By The Same People As The Old Lynching. The New Government, Just Like the Old Government - Which Looked the Other Way.

Shirley Sherrod and Me

I UNDERSTAND how Shirley Sherrod, the Agriculture Department official who was forced to resign last week, must have felt.

Last year I, too, resigned from an administration job, after I uttered some ill-chosen words about the Republican Party and was accused — falsely — of signing my name to a petition being passed around by 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Partisan Web sites and pundits pounced, and I, too, saw my name go from obscurity to national infamy within hours.

Our situations aren’t exactly the same. Ms. Sherrod’s comments, in which she, a black woman, appeared to admit to racial discrimination against a white couple, were taken far out of context, while I truly did use a vulgarity.

But the way we were treated is strikingly similar, and it reveals a lot about the venal nature of Washington politics in the Internet era. In my case, the media rushed to judgment so quickly that I was never able to make clear that the group put my name on its Web site without my permission. The group finally admitted that it never had my signature, but by then it was too late.

Fortunately, Ms. Sherrod has been offered a new job. But our stories offer cautionary tales to anyone interested in taking a job in national politics. Read the rest of this entry »

NAACP Reverses Position on Shirley Sherrod, Asks Administration to Rehire Her

Which raises the question – knowing where the original video came from, and Brietbart’s established reputation to lie and creatively edit…

WTF did the Obama Administration go chickenshit?

This was truly a “High-tech lynching!”

And no less criminal than the old lynching.

The New conservative lynch mob...No so different from the old lynch mob.

NAACP Reverses, Asks US to Rehire USDA Worker

NAACP leaders are calling on the Obama administration to reconsider its ousting of a black Agriculture Department worker who was pushed out of her job over racially tinged remarks, reversing their previous criticism of the employee.

NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a statement that the group was “snookered” into believing that USDA

employee Shirley Sherrod expressed racist sentiments at a local NAACP meeting in Georgia earlier this year. Jealous said conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, whose website posted video of Sherrod’s remarks, deceived millions of people by releasing only partial clips. He said the full video makes clear that Sherrod was telling a story of racial unity.

Now that the NAACP has watched the full video of Shirley Sherrod’s speech, it has retracted its criticism of the former USDA employee and called on the government to restore her job, reports AP. The group, which initially professed to be “appalled,” says it was “snookered by Fox News and Tea Party Activist Andrew Breitbart into believing she had harmed white farmers because of racial bias,” notes Politico.

Brietbart NAACP Shirley Sherrod Story Explodes!

Brietbart and Faux News’ lies have cost this poor woman her job. The tape of Shirley Sherrod speaking before the NAACP was manipulated. Here, in this CNN interview a few hours ago, the wife of the white farmer who supposedly was mistreated by Mrs. Sherrod calls her a dear friend without whose help, they would have lost their farm.


Vodpod videos no longer available.

I repeat my call for the DOJ to criminally charge Mr. Brietbart, and anyone participating in this criminal conspiracy,defamation, and  assault such as Faux News against Mrs. Sherrod, and prosecute them to the fullest extent of Federal law.

Congressman Pimp Slaps Conservative Scumbag

Couple of things go along with being a Congressman or Senator in Washington DC. The first is that the press is going to want to interview you, if you are front and center on any significant legislation or have “Bimbo problems”.

The second, as demonstrated by the Anthrax Attacks, and a gunman killing 2 Capitol Police in an attempt to shoot Congressmen – is that there are whack jobs out there who may try to harm you.

Despite these risks, Congressmen and Senators try and live normal lives – and unless there is some credible known threat, such as some of the whack job Tea Bagger driven threats against Pelosi and Reid, they don’t walk around with a protective detail or bodyguards.

Sans “Bimbo problems”, getting an interview with one of them isn’t very hard for any legitimate news outlet. Politicians by definition, want to be in the public eye. However – in view of the second thing above, “Ambush journalism” is probably not a good idea. Not the least because the Capitol Police may see you lame attempt at imitating the Acorn Pimp as an attack on a Representative…

And justifiably shoot your ass.

The second because you just might pick on a Democrat WITH cajones, as in this case…

And he pimp slaps your stupid ass all the way down C Street!

WTG Representative Bob Etheridge!

This one appears to be another Brietbart pimp wannabe – and you will notice he refuses to identify himself, give his name – and his face is obscured in the “video”. Which if he wasn’t up to something sleazy, he would have done. He also starts the confrontation by shoving the camera onto the Congressman’s face assaulting him, and starting with a pejorative question about the “Obama Agenda”…

As if the pimp slapping wasn’t enough. the Capitol Police should arrest this guy and his cameraman for assault and let them cool their pixels in DC Jail for a few days.

Mullah Omar Captured?

Breitbart’s Big Government site is reporting that Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader who has been the #2 target behind Bin Lauden has been captured.

EXCLUSIVE: Mullah Omar Captured!

The problem here is that this is Brietbart (think Acorn Pimp), who has a bit of a track record in fabricating stories and sensationalism.

On the flip side, it is plausible, due to the capture of a number of high level Taliban leaders the past few weeks in Pakistan. One or more of those captured could have been “induced” to talk. On the flip side, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t seem to know about this as late as her Sunday 60 minutes interview. I can’t imagine any pol walking away from the opportunity to tout an intelligence coup of this level…

Developing.
