Trump ‘Definitely Not’ Participating In Last GOP Debate Before Iowa

The GOP presidential candidates will face off Thursday in their final debate before next week’s Iowa caucuses — this time, without Donald Trump.

Fox News, which is hosting the event, announced on Tuesday which candidates made the cut for the primetime debate, which will begin at 9 p.m. EST.

Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski confirmed to the Washington Post on Tuesday that the GOP front-runner is “definitely not participating in the Fox News debate.”

In a statement, the campaign announced that Trump will hold his own separate event in Iowa to raise money for wounded veterans.

“Like running for office as an extremely successful person, this takes guts and it is the kind of mentality our country needs in order to Make America Great Again,” the campaign said.

Fox News issued a statement on Tuesday night that blasted the Trump campaign for making ridiculous ultimatums and threatening the reputation of anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

Tavis Smiley Takes on Megyn Kelly on Faux

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.

Watch Tavis Smiley brilliantly deflect Fox News talking points on race on “The Kelly File”

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.

Faux News Reconstituted Racist “Expert”

Faux News is at it again, having convicted perjurer and fired racist Policeman Mark Fuhrman on camera daily as their “expert”. He is primarily known for his part in the investigation of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman and his subsequent felonyconviction for perjury.

Lets look at Mr Fuhrman.

Fuhrman gave a taped interview in 1985 to Laura McKinney, an aspiring screenwriter working on a screenplay about female police officers. Fuhrman bragged about his membership in the secret organization within the LAPD known as MAW, or Men Against Women. In further interviews, Fuhrman bragged about beating and torturing gang members, “we had them begging that they’d never be gang members again, begging us.” Fuhrman’s negative attitude toward African-Americans was also evident in the taped interview. He said that he would tell blacks, “You do what you’re told, understand, nigger?”

His perjurious denial of the use–in the ten years prior to the trial–of the term “nigger” brought immediate world-wide condemnation. Even the prosecution denounced Fuhrman in their closing arguments, calling him a “bad cop.”

Indeed, here is a copy of Mr Fuhrman’s Guilty Plea to Felony Perjury.

So now that we have established he is a racist, a self admitted torturer, committed police brutality, and a liar…He is just the sort of person to provide “expert testimony” for Faux News!

Fox News expert: South Carolina cop who flipped black teen out of her desk was ‘polite’

The South Carolina police officer who was filmed flipping a student out of her desk was “polite,” according to a Fox News crime scene expert.

Former Los Angeles Police Department detective Mark Fuhrman on Tuesday night told Fox News host Sean Hannity that the officer did not use excessive force, according tovideo published by Media Matters.

“I’ll tell you why it’s not excessive,” Fuhrman said. “He verbalized, he made contact, he verbalized, he was polite. He requested her. He verbally did that.”

“The next level is he put a hand on her,” he continued. “She escalated it from there. He used soft control. He threw her on the ground, he handcuffed her. He didn’t use mace. He didn’t use a Taser. He didn’t use a stick. He didn’t kick her. He didn’t hit her. He didn’t choke her. He used a minimal amount of force necessary to effect an arrest.”

Here he is on Megyn Kelly’s Show –

Megyn Kelly Gets Blasted on “Cops Afraid To Do Their Job Because of BLM”

How did this lady slip onto a Faux News “panel”?

The first panelist, Bo Dietl, a former NYPD detective, said that the Black Lives Matter movement and its calls for greater police accountability have negatively impacted police. He argued that the police are under attack and “getting death threats.”

In response, panelist Lisa Durden called that argument a “racist statement” and accused those who defend the police of making them the “victims” instead of the people unfairly targeted by law enforcement officers.

“To blame the Black Lives Matter movement for why you’re not doing your freaking job, you robocops, is disgusting,” Durden said. “That’s the same thing as saying a woman whose husband beats her — it’s her fault because she stood up for herself. These guys are not the victims.”

Kelly then suggested that police officers might be worried about “becoming the next Darren Wilson,” in reference to the policeman who became infamous after he killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Boo hoo hoo!” Durden responded, before noting that plenty of people are evaluated on their job performance, and police should be no different.

Uncle Ruckus Does a Meltdown on Faux News

Michael Whaley, whose tirade against BlackLiveMatter on Youtube, and mentioned in my post “Uncle Ruckus Syndrome” earned himself a interview on the racist trolling Faux News…

As discussed by several folks in my comment section – there were some questions as to whether the boy in the YouTube indeed had a full set of marbles. Faux News, willing to give an audience to any Uncle Tom willing to go on camera criticizing the Black Community, BlackLIvesMatter, or any other thing racial snapped up Whaley…

To their regret.

“We need to teach kids to overcome diversity!”: Megyn Kelly gets more than she bargained for when #AllLivesMatter advocate goes off the rails

On “The Kelly File” Tuesday night, host Megyn Kelly spoke to Michael Whaley, an African-American Marine whose anti-#BlackLivesMatter video went viral over the weekend.

In the video, Whaley accused the movement of “encouraging black people to kill white people” — encouragement to which he attributed the murder of Officer Darren Goforth in Houston last Friday. That wasn’t the only Fox News talking point/marching order Whaley indulged in, as he also claimed that “black people can’t accept the truth about themselves,” and need to focus on the fact that “all lives matter.”

Given that Whaley’s video essentially repeated everything that Fox News’ white hosts and guests have been arguing for weeks now, it’s not surprising that Kelly’s producers booked him for an appearance. After all, there’s just something different about him that could lend their arguments the appearance of greater credibility. But back to the interview with Kelly, in which Whaley briefly recapitulated his/their argument before noting that the black community is even more complicit in its own destruction than Kelly assumed.

“What about the ‘no snitch rule’?” Kelly asked. “This was the first I’ve heard about that, for why black people in the inner cities don’t speak up more about black-on-black crime.”

Whaley expressed disbelief, saying “the ‘no snitch rule,’ you know, you’ve probably heard of it before, so I don’t understand why you say it’s your first time hearing about it. There’s been a ‘no snitch rule for a long time.”

“But in this context, it was new,” Kelly clarified, wholly unconvincingly. Even if she had heard of the rule, the fact that she hadn’t thought about the context of the black community enough to consider its implications in this context speaks volumes about the depth of her concern with the plight of black communities in the inner city.

Her inability to make this simple, obvious connection seemed to unnerve him, so after explaining the rule to Kelly, Whaley went on a bizarre rant that began by noting that Jesus’ people had him crucified, but he loved them anyway, and ended by him asserting that “black people and white people aren’t enemies, there’s somebody else behind closed doors, that’s actually pulling the strings, that’s actually causing racism in America.” He didn’t specify who this someone or someones is, but from the look on Kelly’s face, she was clearly afraid he was going to name names. Instead, Whaley veered off in yet another direction.

“It starts with education,” he argued, “we need to teach our kids to overcome diversity, to accept criticism of our races. The #BlackLivesMatter movement is encouraging black people to throw away their lives for something most white people of this generation weren’t a part of, and can’t control. That’s history, let’s not look at the negative things in history. History tends to repeat itself.”

At this point, an uncomfortable Kelly had tried to cut him off three or four times, and finally did so successfully, saying “I hear you, I hear you. We appreciate you coming on, telling us your perspective.”

Whooops!

More Racism From Faux News’ Megyn Kelly

Another racist tirade from Megyn Kelly –

Here specifically are the problems with Megyn’s rant.

1. The case against the New Black Panthers was dropped on January 8, 2009 – that’s nearly two weeks BEFORE President Obama was sworn in

From the testimony of Thomas Perez, head of the Civil Rights Division, before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in May:

Perez Testimony.jpg

This means that the case was downgraded to a civil case 11 days before Obama was inaugurated, 26 days before Eric Holder became attorney general, and about nine months before Thomas Perez was confirmed as head of the Civil Rights Division.

2. Adams accuses two Obama period Justice Department appointees of killing the case and making a policy decision not to prosecute cases against black people –

Adams also said that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes declared, “Never bring another lawsuit against a black or other national minority, apparently no matter what they do.” But according to the Raben Group, a progressive PR firm Fernades worked for prior to the Justice Department, she didn’t leave her job with them until June 22, 2009, more than six months after the criminal case against the NBPP members was dropped.

Further – As Media Matters demonstrated, Adams himself readily acknowledged that he was not present for the meetings and conversations that he pointed to as evidence supporting his allegations. More from Media Matters –

Reality: Adams’ accusations don’t stand up to the facts

  • Adams is a long-time right-wing activist, who is known for filing an ethics complaint against Hugh Rodham that was subsequently dismissed, served as a Bush poll watcher in Florida 2004, and reportedly volunteered for a Republican group that trains lawyers to fight “racially tinged battles over voting rights”;
  • Adams was hired to the Justice Department in 2005 by Bradley Schlozman, who was found by the Department of Justice Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility to have improperly considered political affiliation when hiring career attorneys — the former head of the DOJ voting rights section reportedly said that Adams was “exhibit A of the type of people hired by Schlozman”;
  • Adams has admitted that he does not have first-hand knowledge of the events, conversations, and decisions that he is citing to advance his accusations;
  • The Bush administration’s Justice Department — not the Obama administration — made the decision not to pursue criminal charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for alleged voter intimidation at a polling center in Philadelphia in 2008;
  • The Obama administration successfully obtained default judgment against Samir Shabazz, a member of the New Black Panther Party carrying a nightstick outside the Philadelphia polling center on Election Day 2008;
  • The Bush administration DOJ chose not to pursue similar charges against members of the Minutemen, one of whom allegedly carried a weapon while harassing Hispanic voters in Arizona in 2006;
  • No voters have come forward to claim that they were intimidated from voting on account of the New Black Panthers standing outside the polling center in 2008;
  • The Republican vice chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which is currently investigating the Justice Department’s decision, has called that investigation “very small potatoes” full of “overheated rhetoric filled with insinuations and unsubstantiated charges,” and said it has not “served the interests of the commission”; she further said that DOJ has given a “plausible argument” for not pursuing additional charges in the case.

Now, as to Megyn’s “discomfort”, she’s acting like a woman spurned – which brigs up the question as to whether she has some “personal” interest…

I mean, would the uhhhh… black  Playa who just traded her in on a better model – please introduce her to somebody?

Shabazz… Was that you, brother?
