Juan Williams Unloads On Conservative Hypocrisy

If Obama had done even a tenth of what the Chumph has done, the conservative press would be caterwauling to the rafters!

Is there no crime, including Treason, which the Chumph can commit to which conservatives will object due to ideological purity, and Party loyalty?

If these folks are going to act on behalf of their party loyalty, instead of the best interest of the country…Maybe it is time “We the People” start looking to remove these fucks…By any means necessary.

Juan Williams: If Obama had acted like Trump…

Right-wing media to President Obama: We are so very sorry.

That’s the message I got last week from the conservative Wall Street Journal editorial page.

The Journal abandoned efforts to make sense of President Trump’s outright fiction that Obama wiretapped him. Its editorial page — never a friend to Obama — wrote this last week about Trump:

“[He] clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims.”

Wow. The Journal was sharply critical of Obama but never said he had the credibility of a drunkard.

They are not yet saying “Thanks, Obama,” but their words do stir new appreciation for the good old days under the previous president.

Will right-wing talk radio follow the Journal’s example?

Imagine the reaction from far-right talk radio — the people who raised hell and their ratings by attacking Obama daily with accusations about fake scandals — if the 44thpresident had lied about his predecessor or if people in his circle had been taking money from Russia.

Imagine the outburst from Rush Limbaugh — the king of conservative talk radio — if the Justice Department told Obama that his National Security Advisor had lied about discussing sanctions with Russian government officials and Obama had waited three weeks to demand that person’s resignation.

And what would Hugh Hewitt say on radio if it was later revealed that the advisor took over $65,000 from companies linked to Vladimir Putin’s Russia, in addition to pocketing more than $500,000 from moonlighting as a lobbyist tied to the Turkish government?

What might my friend, conservative radio host Lars Larson, have said if Obama’s former campaign manager had taken $10 million from Russian oligarchs to — in his words — “greatly benefit” the interests of Putin’s Russia inside the U.S.?

Of course, the reality is Obama’s team never engaged in such damaging acts. It is Trump’s team that is under investigation for all of these charges of scandalous behavior.

Radio talk show hosts on the right have great ratings but they are not elected to defend the democratic basis of our government. That job belongs to Congress.

But House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), has become an apologist for Trump. Last week, he rushed over to the White House to say he had seen transcripts of apparently legal intercepts that may have swept up some Trump campaign officials.

Was this evidence that Obama wiretapped Trump as he was running for president? No. Even Nunes admits that. But by briefing the White House before sharing the information with his own committee, Nunes revealed himself as an advocate for the Trump White House.

Nunes, who served on the Trump transition team, compromised any claim to independence and threw away the credibility he needs.

Before Nunes’ rash action it was left to the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), to explain to the nation what the House panel had already found:

“Last summer, at the height of a bitterly contested and hugely consequential presidential campaign, [Russia]…intervened in an effort to weaken our democracy, and to influence the outcome for one candidate and against the other,” Schiff said.

Schiff made more news later in the week when he told Chuck Todd of NBC News, “there is more than circumstantial evidence” that there was collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Meanwhile, House Republicans continue injuring the party’s brand as they busily sweep dirt from the Russia scandal under the White House carpet.

But even the attempted congressional cover-up can’t fool the public — not even in concert with the silence from right-wing talk radio hosts. Look at the polling: Trump’s approval ratings are at historic lows for any president in the modern age at this point in his presidency.

A Quinnipiac poll last week found his approval rating had fallen to 37 percent while his disapproval rating had risen to 56 percent. According to the same poll, 60 percent of voters say he is “not honest,” 55 percent say he “does not have good leadership skills” and 57 percent say he “does not care about average Americans.”

What could be driving the president’s collapsing poll numbers?

The Quinnipiac results suggest an answer.

A whopping 70 percent of voters do not believe Trump’s claim that Obama wiretapped him last year. Just 19 percent believe — in the face of the evidence — that Obama did so.

In perhaps the most damning result in the Quinnipiac survey, 73 percent of voters say Trump’s administration makes “statements without evidence to support them ‘very often’ or ‘somewhat often.’”

Again, it was left to the Wall Street Journal editorial page to admit that the Trump White House is drowning in a vast credibility crisis.

“If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him?” The Journal wrote. “Would the rest of the world? We’re not sure, which speaks to the damage that Mr. Trump is doing to his Presidency with his seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods.”

President Obama, please accept the right wing’s many apologies.

Hannity Has A Full Porch of Black Conservatives

Wow! The success of BLM, and it’s influence to make Democrat candidates “get it” has sent the right into flash flood mode. Fox resident racist frequently trots out his black conservative slaves to regurgitate white racist positions. Group buckdancing at it’s worst!

Hannity trots out not 1, but 2 Porch Negroes, and an additional 1 with one foot off the Porch.

Juan Williams on Race and This Election Cycle

Juan Williams put together a good article over on “The Hill” – the only problem is it misses the key driver in this election cycle – Women. It isn’t race that is going to drive this election. The white male dominated GOP has done an incredible job of alienating white women, which will undoubtedly pay dividends in terms of local election, House of Representative and even Senate losses.

The Republican party is increasingly looking more like “Custer’s Last Stand” instead of a political entity – damage which done almost exclusively by their own hands.

Yes – blacks, Hispanics, and now Asians are going to vote against them – but if women split 60-40 against Republicans…

It’s over. Perhaps that is why President Obama isn’t sweating the election.

Anyway – Juan makes some good points…

How race may affect this year’s election

Last week several political strategists predicted to me that every racial button is going to get pushed hard in this fall’s presidential campaign. Their forecast is based on racial fears that are already being exposed. White Republican men form the strongest block of opposition to reelection of a black president — who, in turn, has near-unanimous support from blacks, and overwhelming backing from Hispanics and Asians.

Their predictions come against the backdrop of two white male political writers, Pat Buchanan and John Derbyshire, losing their jobs at MSNBC and National Review, respectively, after writing racially charged pieces. Buchanan lamented in a book that immigration and high Hispanic birthrates were leading to the “end of white America.” Derbyshire, writing in a small magazine, advised his children to avoid “concentrations of blacks,” and to not settle in any place run by black politicians.

The 2012 election comes at a time when the country is in the middle of a seismic shift in its demographics. Racial attitudes are also changing, for better or worse, with rising numbers of minorities and immigrants now more than 30 percent of the population. But in political terms, the GOP has failed to bring any substantial part of that growing population into its ranks. The heart of the party remains senior white voters who are resisting the loss of the America they grew up in 50 years ago.

A whole catalogue of racial fears was revealed during the Aspen Institute Symposium on Race in America, attended last week by a number of prominent experts and televised on C-SPAN:

— White fear of the increasing voting power of Hispanics, Asians and blacks. In the GOP primaries, the nation’s first black president was labeled as the “food stamp president.” He was charged with being a “socialist” and wanting to lead the country to become an “entitlement society.” This racially provocative language suggested hard-working white people being ripped off by lazy minorities. The experts see it a warning sign of the approaching racial storm.  Read the rest of this entry »

Juan Williams Tries to Make Sense to Chris Wallace…

Juan Williams continues in his quest to bring Faux News back somewhere in the sphere of sanity…

Good Luck with that, Juan – Chris, and the other “commentators” on Faux aren’t paid to tell the truth, or to take sane views.

Juan Williams Blasts NPR

Jusan Williams of “Faux News”…

Accuses NPR of being an “all white operation”?

When did they discover Glenn Beck’s Daddy was black? Bill O’Reilly? Hannity? The “blonde bombe” squad?

Juan Williams, Fox News contributor, blasts former employer NPR as ‘all-white operation

Ousted NPR pundit Juan Williams ripped his former employer — which is taking heat after an embarrassing sting — for showing the “worst of white condescension” when it fired him last year.

“I think when it comes to NPR’s decision to, without any reason, throw me out the door, I think that for them, especially for some of the people who created NPR, it’s an all-white operation,” said Williams, who works for Fox News.

Williams said NPR “felt they had never had much success” with black or Hispanic journalists and did better with white women.

Williams made the comments to the Huffington Post before Tuesday’s release of a sting video that showed an NPR exec calling Tea Partiers “racist.”

The website published the interview Thursday as part of a series that examines black journalists’ experiences in the media industry.

NPR canned Williams, 56, in October after he told “The O’Reilly Factor” he gets “nervous” when he sees people in airplanes wearing “Muslim garb.”

NPR has said Williams’ comments about Muslims “undermined his credibility as a news analyst.”

About the firing, Williams said: “I think they acted very unfairly, and largely in a condescending manner…”

“If you stop and think about some of the things that were said in the midst of that controversy, the idea that I should have a relationship with a psychiatrist or I need a publicist to tell me what to say … It just suggests … they think I was sort of some sort of infantile mentality, or childlike person…”

“I think the worst of white condescension to black people was evident in some of those comments.”

The Not so Sting – At NPR

I watched this video, which is currently making the right wing outrage circuit – and I find it hard to be upset at the NPR executives.

They are telling the truth. The Tea Party is racist. The best thing that could happen is for NPR to be able to get off of the small subsidy provided by the Government. And quite frankly, I see no difference between the Republican Party today, and what the Republicans accuse the Muslim Brotherhood of.  Simply domestic terrorism versus the threat of foreign terrorism.

Indeed,  being a businessman who doesn’t like my time being wasted – I feel that NPR should sue Mr O’Keefe and Veritas for wasting their executives time. NPR is probably too chickenshit to do it – which is the problem in this country. The forces of fairness, progressivism, and any sort of intellectual honesty in this country aren’t smacking these right wing scumbags in the teeth with a 2 x 4 …

Yet. Although Wisconsin is becoming a shining beacon of hope.

Insofar as the Jewish owned or influenced media in this country, that is true. It isn’t an evil thing, or a bad thing – it is a minority which has been very successful at advancing their issues and supporting their ideas relative to Israel. You want to change that view to more pro-Islamic, or pro China, or pro anything – then you have to invest in American Media – whether through training and developing higher caliber news people and reporters, or by buying networks like Faux to propagandize whatever you want to sell as Murdoch did.

It’s one of the reasons Russia TV and Al Jazeera are now more trusted names worldwide than any of the American News media. Our Media is for sale to the highest bidder, often to say whatever they are paid to say, courtesy of Faux.

I think the folks quitting their jobs at NPR is utterly bullshit – and wish they would stand up to this type of sleazy blackmail.

Juan Williams Gets Canned at NPR

Always felt William’s role at Faux News as the House Negro would get him in trouble with any serious news outfit. That ticking time bomb has finally exploded.

NPR fires Juan Williams over anti-Muslim remarks

Veteran journalist Juan Williams was fired from his job as senior news analyst for National Public Radio late Wednesday because of comments he made about Muslims and terrorism on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News Channel.

NPR said in a statement that Williams’s remarks – including that he gets “worried” and “nervous” when he sees people dressed in Muslim-style clothing on airplanes – “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”

Williams, 56, made the remarks after the show’s host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him whether he thought the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” “The cold truth is that in the world today, jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet,” O’Reilly said.

Williams, who is African American and writes and speaks frequently on race, told O’Reilly that he agreed with his assessment.

“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country,” he said. “But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they’re identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

Williams then brought up a statement made in a New York courtroom this month by Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani American who pleaded guilty to trying to detonate a bomb in Times Square and was sentenced to life in prison.

“He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Williams said…

Muslim advocacy groups and liberal commentators reacted with outrage to Williams’s comments on “The O’Reilly Factor” and called for his ouster. Conservative bloggers, in turn, blasted the dismissal as political-correctness spiraling out of control.

“NPR should address the fact that one of its news analysts seems to believe that all airline passengers who are perceived to be Muslim can legitimately be viewed as security threats,” Nihad Awad, national executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations, said in a statement issued before the firing was announced. “Such irresponsible and inflammatory comments would not be tolerated if they targeted any other racial, ethnic or religious minority, and they should not pass without action by NPR.”

Bill Kristol Discovers CALEA – or, Juan Williams Grows a Pair

Not sure what is happening with Juan Williams here, this is the second or third time he’s shown a spine in contradicting the Faux News talking head story line.

Now, Kristol was a full fledged supporter of the Patriot Act, which incorporated and expanded legislation passed back in the 90’s called CALEA, which required ISPs to save electronic communication for a period of 3 years – such that the Government could “wiretap” conversations going back for that time period.

In 2005, talking about the Mukasey confirmation –

Judging also by what Mukasey has written and said outside the courtroom about the Patriot Act and related matters, we can be confident he’ll be effective at making the case before Congress and the public for tough legislation and sound policies on national security issues.

Mukasey’s view of the Patriot Act can be found here – ‘The Spirit of Liberty’ – Before attacking the Patriot Act, try reading it.

Now isn’t it interesting that Mr. Kristol has suddenly found an issue with the Patriot Act/CALEA – now that his own private ox benefactor criminals are being gored?

Goof job, Juan – but if you keep this up you’ll have to find a job on another network!

Juan Williams Goes Uncle Ruckus

Apparently Juan didn’t like Warren Ballentine telling him it was “OK for Juan to get back on the Porch”

So… Just for fun, let’s take this thing apart –

LA Times Columnist David Ehrenstein

LA Times Columnist David Ehrenstein

First “The Magic Negro” was an article written by a LA Times correspondent, David Ehrenstien, and dealt with white perceptions of then Presidential candidate Obama, and depictions of black characters in the media.

The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. “He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist,” reads the description on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro .

The song, very generously described as a parody, was written by a white guy named Paul Shanklin, who is a political satirist working for Rush Limbaugh. Shanklin does most of the songs and skits on the Limbaugh Show.

Republican Satirist Paul Shanklin

Republican Satirist Paul Shanklin

The song was written, composed, and recorded for the Limbaugh show, and later released by Shanklin to senior members of the RNC. It was recorded in “blackface”, with Shanklin imitating Rev. Al Sharpton. When the song was played during Limbaugh’s show it was met with outrage. Chip Salzman, then an RNC Committee Chair, distributed the song to Republican donors in a mailing causing even more controversy, and Salzman’ dismissal.

So Uncle Juan was lying about the “Magic Negro” issue, trying to provide racial cover for Limbaugh.

Next, we have the “Black personal friend of Limbaugh”, the Reverend Ken Hutcherson, PhD. Couple things about Ken – first off being he does not hold a PhD, his bio at his own Church only claims an honorary degree from an ambiguous “Theological Seminary”.  Rev Hutcherson is an anti-Gay activist who is most famous for is attempting to blackmail Microsoft Corporation into dropping support for anti-discrimination legislation.

On November 13, 2007, Hutcherson addressed the Microsoft Annual Stockholders meeting. During the question and answer session he referred to previous discussions with Microsoft executives regarding their support for anti-discrimination legislation in Washington State and threatened further action against the company without clearly specifying the policy position or activity he hopes to change. Hutcherson stated “I could work with you, or I could be your worst nightmare, because I am a black man with a righteous cause, with a host of powerful white people behind me…”.

“Massa been good to me!”… Indeed.

Next we have “reformed liberal” Tammy Bruce, who claims to be a “Lesbian activist”. Now Tammy is no stranger to racial remarks, referring the Michelle Obama and the Obama family as “trash” –

Man, oh, man. That’s who he’s married to, what does that tell you? This is what we’ve got — you know what we’ve got? We’ve got trash in the White House. Trash is a, is a thing that is color blind, it can cross all eco — ecosocionomic kind of categories, you can work on Wall Street or work at the Wal-Mart. Trash are people who use other people to get things, who patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy. Source .

Tammy’s schtick in the conservative world is to make borderline racist statements and inferences to prove that the left is too sensitive in it’s charges of racism. It is a classic bait and switch, where Tammy says something racially insensitive, and then, when confronted offers a mea culpa with “just kidding!”. Perhaps the most offensive of which was to comment that Mrs. Camille Cosby was responsible for her murdered son’s death by buying him an expensive car which got Bruce fired from her gig as a radio host at LA station KFI.

So this is who Juan Williams chooses to defend him. Notice the entire issue that the NFL is a business, which didn’t want an owner as controversial and out of control as Rush Limbaugh with a claimed 20 million listenership potentially harming that business by off the cuff on the air remarks – never get’s mentioned.

Uncle Ruckus Porch Negro… Indeed.
