First, some general thoughts.
Why was there no discussion of the dictatorial executive order issued by President Obama? It was just so obvious that the news media worked overtime to discuss Ferguson, Missouri, all the time, in every way.
Let us not forget that Eric Holder, the BEST Attorney General this country has ever had, is somehow involved in this Missouri nonsense so I’m thinking there’s a plan afoot. More on this later.
How about Chuck Schumer coming out and blasting the Democrats for passing an awful health care plan and how stupid they were for doing so? Lookit, Schumer didn’t do that for no reason. The Democrats know this is a loser and besides trying to help Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, he’s paving the way to the presidential campaign of 2016 and Hillary’s run.
Did Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri deliberately stop the National Guard from defending those businesses in Ferguson? Well the National Guard was NOT deployed even though Nixon said he would. If he didn’t deploy, why?
Let us begin with Fox News Sunday, always one of the better Sunday talk shows.
Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York and widely known for cutting New York crime down drastically and helping to restore tourism to New York.
I was a little harsh on Giuliani in last week’s column.
Last week Giuliani was a bit sharp with a commentator, saying something to the effect of : “If you people wouldn’t kill each other the cops wouldn’t have to constantly be in your neighborhood.”
I thought he sounded a bit smirky but during the week Rudy was praised by many for his honesty.
On Fox News Sunday, Giuliana said that blacks commit murder more than any other group in America.
Well that’s interesting, when put that way. Imagine the impact this statement could have if every Sunday talk show had a Republican on it and they all pointed out this same unpleasant fact.
Giuliani was debating, such as it was, a Marc Morial, CEO of the National Urban League, the same people advertising to blacks that Common Core is the answer to inner city lackluster schools.
Giuliani said that 93% blacks are killed by other blacks. Morial said that 93% whites are killed by other whites, what’s the point?
Cause it’s the BLACKS out burning stuff in Ferguson, not the WHITES, THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE.
Meet the Press was a bit boring but Massachusetts’ darling, Deval Patrick, came on as the media recruited everyone black for their endless Ferguson coverage. Patrick recited the difference in average white income versus average black income as well as the disparity with unemployment half again that rate of whites.
And what was his point? Did the Gentle Giant rob that store because he makes less money than the whites. Had Michael Brown ever looked for a job in his life?
Over on This Week we had George Stephanopoulos interview Officer Darren Wilson. Wilson seems to be a soft-spoken sort, who has resigned from the Ferguson police department by the way. Wilson asserted, firmly and quietly, that he had NO choice whatsoever but to shoot to save his own life, that Brown was trying to get his gun.
Cokie Roberts, goodness is she still around?…she complained that the grand jury should have just let the thing go to trial, let it all be aired out so to speak.
Will somebody tell this dumb witch that THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS!
We have a grand jury system and it worked like it should. The grand jury does not exist to measure hurt feelings to indict.
This is why the media in this country has lost its rudder, destroyed its journalistic pride.
State of the Union had Candy Crowley back as I’d hoped she’d be gone. There were a bunch of cops on her show and it was boring.
Face the Nation finally had some real political guys on, those being new North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, who I was quite impressed with by the way.
Tillis talked this compromise mantra that the media likes to banter on and on about. Tillis said he thought North Carolina could find common ground with the Democrats on the issue of bringing back manufacturing to America.
The Wise I would note that unless Americans are willing to pay double to triple for their goods, manufacturing will likely never return big time to these shores.
It’s no coincidence that those riots went off unimpeded by such as the National Guard and in very selective locales for a reason. All of those Sunday political talk show soldiers were part of the massive PR bomb.
Because somehow the federal government is going to get involved with this. I don’t know how but the gauntlet has been thrown down.
Eric Holder, America’s finest AG ever, sent FBI agents to Ferguson. The feds had their noses buried in this whole thing.
My prediction? Officer Wilson gets brought up on charges of a hate crime…this being a federal offense.
Oh it’s not about right or wrong or even any possibility of winning.
This is about giving Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson credit and receiving funds from same when the elections are upon.
All orchestrated by Eric Holder, the finest Attorney General America, or even the planet, has ever known.
I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.
