Clinton always right in liberal media — even when she’s not

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

First published September 18, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

In the eyes of the liberal media, Hillary Clinton’s always right even when she lies.

Her last acts of mendacity are about her health and the roots of the birther movement.

When her legs buckled, and she looked like the leaning tower of Pisa before being abruptly whisked away from a 9/11 memorial service, her campaign stonewalled the media for hours.

First her staff said she got “overheated,” then admitted she had pneumonia.

Instead of the media exposing Hillary’s penchant for and long history of dodging honesty, the liberal press coddled her and made her health woes Donald Trump’s. Rather than demanding Queen Hillary release health records to the 1,200-page standard that Sen. John McCain set in 2008, the liberal media made excuses for Hillary’s blatant lie.

A Washington Post article dripped with weeping pity for the liberal Queen.

“Hillary Clinton had a cough — a nasty, recurring cough that she could not kick after a week of trying.”

After her episode, the two Post reporters who authored the article wrote in fairytale fashion how Hillary rushed to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment in Manhattan, gulped down Gatorade and frolicked with her wee granddaughter Charlotte.

“Oh, how sweet, poor Hillary” — what the reporters wanted readers to feel was sympathy for a woman who habitually lies to voters for personal gain and power.

See how the liberal media acted as Hillary’s handmaidens and twisted the truth to rig the election in her favour? The article went on at length to excuse away Hillary’s lying, adding she just wanted to “power through the election” while running for the highest office in the land.

When was the last time that the liberal media passed up a chance to distort everything Trump says?

Trying to pivot bad press away from Hillary, the media blamed Trump for starting the birther movement and prodded him like a swarm of gnats to admit Obama was born in America. Never mind — that in 2007 — Hillary’s chief campaign strategist Mark Penn drafted a lengthy memo urging her to suggest Obama wasn’t born in America. There was a tonne of press coverage proving Hillary’s campaign did just that.

Last week, at the opening of his hotel in Washington, D.C., Trump gave a terse statement to feed the media vampires.

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. You know what I’m talking about. President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again,” Trump declared.

After the liberal media hounded Trump to make the comments, they called his statement vile, too short and insisted he perpetuated the birther claim since 2011. Yet, the media never hounds Hillary about her 60 Minutes interview in 2008 when she questioned if Obama was a Muslim.

See what I mean? Trump never wins with the liberal press.

“A bout of pneumonia is not a major story,” declared the Washington Post in a Sept. 16, 2016 opinion piece.

But the Washington Post, along with a basket full of other news outlets, believes that generating Trump birther controversy is? The REAL story is that polls show Trump is now tied with Lyin’ Hillary at 42%.

CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY OFFERS HOUSING ‘FOR BLACKS ONLY’

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

First published September 13, 2016 in Frontpage Magazine

Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. Presidents of leftist colleges across the nation are creating segregated dorms for blacks students in response to the Black Lives Matter mafia. You can’t make this stuff up.

In 1964, Democrats fought tooth and nail to preserve segregation. Racist southern Democrat Dixiecrats like Alabama Governor George Wallace refused to follow the Supreme Court’s Brown vs. Board of Education decision, the law, and even resorted to sanctioning police brutality against blacks to keep his state “separate and unequal.”

It’s more than curious that California State University of Los Angeles proudly announced segregated housing for blacks only. It’s also grotesque that black students praised the move because they feel threatened living with whites at an integrated school. I wonder if any of these students realize that their forefathers fought and died for integration during the Civil Rights Movement and this housing arrangement is a step backwards.

No, you’re not misreading anything, leftists are harkening back to the pre-Civil Rights glory days of segregation.

The newly debuted Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community “focuses on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory,” Cal State LA spokesman Robert Lopez told The College Fix via email.”

Does Lopez understand the definition of the word “inclusive”? Never mind, insert the laugh track run here. But Cal State isn’t alone in their backwards-leftist thinking. University of Connecticut, University of California Davis and Berkeley all offer housing for blacks only. It’s like it’s 1954 pre-Brown vs. Board of Education all over again.

If white students demanded segregated dorms in the name of “safe spaces,” they would be called racist. But today in the name of social justice, it’s just another “must do” for blacks. State’s segregated housing is the latest fruit to be borne of the Black Lives Matter movement’s grievance fleecing of college administrators. This housing debacle was part of the Black Student Union’s litany of demands presented to the school nine months ago.

In a letter of DEMANDS to President William Covino, the students wrote:
“Black students at Cal State LA have been, and still are, consistently made the targets of racist attacks by fellow students, faculty, and administration. These attacks come in many forms. Some are more overt and some subtle. Racially insensitive remarks, and micro-aggressions, by professors and students create a learning environment that is not conducive to the overall learning atmosphere.”

Yet, they listed no examples of these racist remarks or micro-aggressions in their list of 14 demands. Each one began with bold letters “WE DEMAND . . . .”

Number 13 was their housing demand:

“WE DEMAND the creation and financial support of a CSLA housing space delegated for Black students and a full time Resident Director who can cater to the needs of Black students. Many Black CSLA students cannot afford to live in Alhambra or the surrounding area with the high prices of rent. A CSLA housing space delegated for Black students would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other.”

They also demanded the school create a Pan-African Masters program, presumably so that black students could graduate with a useless, high-priced degree with limited job opportunities. Considering another one of their demands was “a $30 million dollar endowment to help support Black students” pay for college, why would they demand the school put more resources in African Studies degrees with little to no use in the job market?

Another laughable request was the Black Student Union’s DEMAND the school devote “$500,000 in funding for outreach programs that will focus on the recruitment of Black high school students as well as transfer students.” Regardless of a student’s qualifications, the militant group demanded that Cal State “increase the Black student body from 4% to 15% minimum within two years and to increase Black student admissions to 25% within five years.”

None of these demands address how affirmative action, namely weakening academic admission standards for blacks, has led to the high rate of blacks not graduating college at the rate of whites. Cal State’s Black Student Union’s demanding the school admit blacks to fill politically correct quotas will only lead to more blacks dropping out of college with high student loan debt because they’re not academically prepared.

If these black students don’t feel safe at an integrated university with white students, maybe they should apply to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities like Howard University, Morehouse College and Spellman College. At these schools, black students can get the segregated, all-black experience they crave because evidently that’s more important than black minds!

Hillary Clinton living in a deplorable glass house

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

First published September 11, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

Scripted Hillary Clinton veered off her highly-orchestrated 30-year course to become president.

Doing what she does best — taking money from Americans at a fundraising event in New York City — she slammed Republican Donald Trump’s supporters as “a basket of deplorables.”

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Hillary preached.

Hillary claims that half of the nearly 14 million people who voted for Trump in the Republican primary — and those who support him now — are deplorable human beings. She didn’t stop there.

At the LGBT for Hillary fundraiser, she continued her screed against Trump supporters.

“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”

In America, where free speech and thought are enshrined in the U.S. constitution under the first amendment, Hillary says that half of Trump’s supporters are racist and everything evil under the sun for supporting him. Yikes!

This heinous name calling sounds like a new horror show on cable: “Basketful of Deplorables.”

Hillary even punctuated her attack on Americans by saying that “some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

The woman who used several private email servers and private emails, and deleted 30,000 emails as secretary of state to hide from accountability to the American people has now elevated herself to the stature of God. If you don’t support her, Hillary says you’re “an irredeemable, deplorable” American.

“How can she be president of our country when she has such contempt and disdain for so many great Americans?” Trump said in a statement.

What’s deplorable isn’t Americans who support Trump but the way Hillary conducts herself as a government official.

While secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation continued to take donations from foreign governments and businesses that had matters being reviewed by the state department. There were blurred lines between where the foundation ended and the state department began.

Hillary’s continued denials and stonewalling about not knowing that “c” stamped on government documents meant confidential is also deplorable. She wants to be the first woman elected president but, as secretary of state, treated classified information in a careless way. FBI Director James Comey said someone of her stature should have known better.

Then there’s Hillary’s unfortunate fainting spell Sunday while visiting the Ground Zero Memorial in New York City to honour the 15th anniversary of 9/11. After stonewalling the media for more than an hour, her campaign issued a statement saying “she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment.”

According to the NBC Pool Report, reporters were “told by the campaign that we are no longer allowed to shoot anything from the ceremony.”

Other press said that Hillary’s campaign staff blocked reporters from leaving the media area and refused to tell them what happened to her.

Once again, we see Hillary doing what she and Bill do best — covering up facts and obstructing laws. In this case, it was the freedom of the press to report news about her medical incident.

Hillary’s health has officially become an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign, along with her deplorable behaviour.

Trump Puts Black Vote in Play

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

First published September 5, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

Without question, Democrats have owned the black vote for more than a half-century, which is why they’re hysterical about Donald Trump’s latest move.

Daring to go where no Republican will, Trump spoke to a black church service in Detroit Saturday to compete for the black vote.

“I am hear today to listen to your message,” he told captive members of Great Faith Ministries International.

“I fully understand the African-American community suffers from discrimination.”

When Trump said this, the black vote officially became competitive. Adding that he was “here to learn and remedy injustice,” Trump demonstrated a natural ease in talking with blacks that his rival Hillary Clinton never does.

In his brief, scripted remarks, Trump expressed a sincerity and humility in offering blacks policies to address their problems and win their votes. While his outreach to black voters hasn’t been pitch perfect, this is a bold step in the right direction. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn’t have the guts to do this. He spoke to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, not everyday black voters.

Trump also agreed to do a taped interview with the church’s Bishop Wayne T. Jackson. Because liberals feel threatened by Trump’s engagement with blacks, the New York Times tried to trash his campaign for receiving the questions in advance and preparing answers. Politicians do this all the time, as the Times noted: “It is not uncommon for a candidate to request interview questions in advance; aides to Hillary Clinton do it from time to time. But it is unusual for a campaign to go so far as to prepare a script for a candidate’s own responses.”

Hillary is one of the most scripted candidates to ever run for president, but according to liberal logic, Trump isn’t allowed to prepare for interviews.

Trump is asking blacks to vote for him and going to Democrat territory of black churches, no less. Every four years, Democrat candidates like Barack Obama and Hillary head to the churches to “get down” with blacks, win their votes with lies, then forget about them for four more years.

First liberals criticized Trump for asking blacks to vote for him at predominately white rallies. No liberals are mocking Trump and accusing him of pandering for the black vote now that he is walking into the lion’s den of Democrats’ monopoly on the black vote. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

When Trump arrived at the church, black protesters outside chanted: “What do you have to lose? Everything.” This was in reference to earlier remarks Trump made telling blacks they should consider voting for him after voting nearly 100% for the Democratic party for the past half century.

 

Sadly, these blacks have lost everything by voting for Democrats and should be protesting Hillary and her lies. Hillary is campaigning to end the mass incarceration of blacks. But in 1994 when she spoke in support of her husband’s crime bill, she called black male criminals super-predators who needed to be brought to heel like dogs.

Detroit, like most of America’s black inner cities, has been run by Democrats for decades and is mired in massive crime, poverty, incarceration rates and unemployment. If any party has been pandering to black people and not delivering, it is the Democrats. Each presidential election since Lyndon B. Johnson was elected in 1964, Democrats have campaigned to fix these problems plaguing blacks, yet they only exacerbate and perpetuate them.

After attending the church service, Trump visited black neighborhoods with Dr. Ben Carson. As a black Republican who criticizes the GOP for ignoring black voters, I hope Trump visits more black neighborhoods and exposes the “Con Job” Democrats have been playing on blacks for decades.

 

DON CHEADLE CALLS TRUMP A ‘POS’ INSTEAD OF THE TWO BLACK FELONS WHO KILLED BLACK CHICAGO MOM

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

First published September 1, 2016 in Frontpage Magazine

Liberal Hollywood actors remind us all too often why they should stick to the mindless profession of being stars — rather than intellectuals. Rather than expressing fear and loathing for the two black men with guns who killed mother-of-four Nykea Aldridge, black actor Don Cheadle wished death upon Donald Trump.

“You are truly a POS. Sorry. I misspelled ‘die in a grease fire,’” Cheadle tweeted.

This was in response to Trump’s tweet:

“Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”

Days before Aldridge’s murder, Trump made direct appeals to black voters. At several campaign rallies, Trump reminded black voters that Democrats have done nothing to stop the black-on-black genocide in cities like Chicago, where Aldridge was mercilessly gunned down. Clearly, Trump was making the case for why blacks should vote for him. Chicago, like Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, New Orleans, St. Louis and so many other predominately black cities have been controlled by Democrats for decades and are cesspools of blacks killing each other. Consistently and historically, the Democrats, who control these cities, do nothing to solve the problem of violence. Trump is accurately pointing out the Con Job that Democrats are pulling on blacks — to their own peril.

But like Hillary Clinton, Democrats promise every election cycle that black lives matter to them. Democrats campaign to fix the same problems of violence, poverty, unemployment and low education rates that have plagued and ensnared these communities for the past half century. Nothing changes, as Trump said; so what do blacks have to lose in voting for him? Not much indeed.

After registering her kids for school, the mother-of-four was shot while pushing her newborn in the stroller. Two armed black felons, who were brothers, killed this 32-year-old mother. “Black mother of four killed by two black armed men,” declared the Liberal media … never.

Instead of wishing death to the two black thugs who killed Dwayne Wade’s cousin, the black Hollywood actor Cheadle excoriates Trump for his truthful tweet. Perhaps facts aren’t Cheadle’s thing, or he — like the mainstream media — isn’t bothered by the black deaths piling up in Chicago caused by blacks.

Derren Sorrells, 22, and Darwin Sorrells, 26, were convicted felons and really bad black guys. The Democrat-run city of Chicago managed by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, screwed up! The day he and his brother killed Aldridge, Derren Sorrells had been released for a daily break from his electronic monitoring bracelet. Derren had a rap sheet of six felony arrests.

His brother Darwin Sorrells had been released early from a six-year prison sentence in January 2013 and was on parole for a gun charge. One would think that Cheadle would call these two black thugs the real “POS” — not Trump. Murders have increased by nearly 50% in mostly-black Chicago over last year. In fact, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson attributes 85% of the gun violence in the city to gang members, not racist cops or Trump, as liberals like Cheadle would like everyone to believe. According to the Associated Press, July was a historically deadly month in Chicago, with 65 homicides committed, the most in that month since 2006.

Where is Cheadle’s Twitter rant of outrage at these senseless killings of blacks by blacks? Moreover, why isn’t #BlackLivesMatter trending on twitter over Aldridge’s death, or over the 450 murders that have taken place in Chicago to date? Cheadle and other liberals have manufactured outrage only for Republicans who dare offer solutions, or when a white, armed man kills a black person (which is rare in Chicago and most inner cities).

The sad reality is that Democrats will never address the problem driving black-on-black genocide in our inner cities. Nearly 75% of all black babies today are born out of wedlock to fatherless homes. I’ve spoken and written obsessively about this pathology. Until America reforms Welfare and enacts policies to encourage more marriage among blacks, none of this carnage will end. If you’re an unwed, uneducated teenage woman having a baby, the chances of your child growing up in poverty and turning to crime are over 50%.

While I grieve for Aldridge, it’s interesting to note that there’s no mention in any of the news coverage of her having a husband. Yet, she was the mother of four children; one of whom is an infant. Before blacks started voting solidly Democrat in 1964, most of the babies, about 77%, were born into married households. Something to think about.

Trump not wrong about Clinton being bigot

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

First published August 29, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

“Hillary Clinton is a bigot, who sees people of colour only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” Donald Trump observed recently. And he’s right.

I wonder if Trump is cribbing lines from my book, Con Job: How Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering, and Racial Division.

“Black lives don’t matter as much as black votes,” I wrote.

“She’s going to do nothing for African-Americans. She’s going to do nothing for the Hispanics. She’s only going to take care of herself, her husband, her consultants, her donors. These are the people she cares about … She doesn’t care. ”

For blacks to support any Democrat like Hillary Clinton flies in the face of our survival. Democrats peddle the politics of soft bigotry.

My book exposes how Democrats have exploited the black vote for more than 50 years. The liberal media won’t report Hillary and Democrats’ opposition to school choice programs, which help more blacks escape failing schools. Instead, Hillary supports the teachers unions, which protect failing public schools and bad teachers with great pensions.

If elected, Hillary vows to grant amnesty to more than 11 million illegal aliens. This is anathema to the economic prosperity of blacks.

According to a 2010 study, every time immigration increases by 10%, wages for blacks decline by 2.5%.

“Remember this, you’ve had her policies. Democrats — running some of the inner cities for 50, 70, 80 even over 100 years, and look what you have right now — poverty, no education, crime. You can’t walk down the street with your child. We’re going to fix it,” Trump added.

Again Trump is right. In my book, I write about how Baltimore, with a black population over 63%, hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1967. In 2013, the city ranked fifth for murders behind Detroit, New Orleans, Newark and St. Louis — all Democrat controlled cities. And in 2013, the unemployment rate for black men ages 20-24 was 37%.

Speaking of blacks and crime, Hillary really showed she doesn’t care about blacks.

In support of her husband’s 1994 crime bill, Hillary called young black men super predators who needed to be brought to heel like dogs. If this is not a bigot talking, I don’t know what is.

Hillary promises to reform our criminal justice system, instead of working on policy that addresses putting the black family back together again.

About 73% of all black babies today are born out of wedlock. Rather than encouraging black marriage, Hillary supports the welfare system that disproportionately rewards black women for having illegitimate babies.

The more babies black women have, the more free stuff they get from the government nanny. The cycle repeats for generations, helping Democrats own the black vote.

In 2016, Hillary beat Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina primary and other heavily black states like Georgia and Mississippi by pandering to blacks.

Hillary has adopted a black dialect when talking to predominately black audiences. Appearing on a radio show this spring targeted to black Americans, Hillary joked with the black hosts that she loves hot sauce like a lot of black people and carries a bottle in her purse.

There was scant coverage of this by the liberal media, much less calling Hillary a racist. Maybe in voting for a Republican for president, blacks would gain political power to influence policy again. Something they haven’t had since the Civil Rights Movement.
