Al Sharpton’s bizarre tirade about Paul Ryan’s workout regime has landed MSNBC with a truckload of ridicule

In the day to day of US politics, one would be hard pressed to avoid a joke at the expense of Fox News. “Fair and balanced?!” Its detractors decry, often to many a guffaw.

But the network that so often hosts guests who attack Fox News for its ‘clear bias’ is almost certainly no better itself.

On Al Sharpton’s “Politics Nation” show, the presenter (Al Sharpton, funnily enough) launches into a tirade aimed at Mitt Romney’s new running mate, Paul Ryan.

Oh goodie, you might think. MSNBC, while liberal leaning, is almost certain to present a serious challenge to Ryan’s economic plans. Food for thought, one would hope.

Er… not quite.

Sharpton bizzarely descends into what can only be described as reductio ad absurdum (Editor’s Note: I can think of a few other ways to describe it!)

Discussing the seriousness of Ryan as a candidate, Sharpton states that Ryan has only ever sponsored two bills that became law in the United States, as if more laws equal better government.

But that’s not the kicker.

Sharpton’s keen political acumen leads him to the conclusion that the ‘X-treme Congressman”, as MSNBC have plastered all over the segment, is guilty of… being fit.


This presidential election is going to be about one thing and one thing only:

‘Do you believe that America is built on the notion that free people engaging in free enterprise is the BEST thing we can do as a nation …. or that everything flows from the federal government?’

That is pretty much it, ladies and gentlemen. We have always had the debate in our national elections over more or less ‘control’ from a centralized authority in Washington starting with the debates in the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787.

This one, however, goes far beyond just what the ‘proper role of government’ should be in America. This election fundamentally comes down to whether you believe that all freedom, all prosperity, all benefits in America comes primarily from our government or from private people making decisions on their own every single day.

President Obama represents a major change from virtually every other American President in our history in his outlook on free enterprise and capitalism. His actions, policies and words over the past 3.6 years as Chief Executive have skewed heavily towards the notion that he believes the federal government is the ‘be-all/end-all’ when it comes to bestowing favors and blessings on the American people from Washington.

His every utterance oozes with the notion that anyone who succeeds in America must have done something ‘wrong’ to have succeeded somehow. He views every business as a conduit for more redistribution of benefits and programs as dictated by his Administration and friends in Congress. The notion that businesses exist primarily to provide a return on investment for the owners and shareholders seems to bounce off of him like a rubber ball.

He views business with disdain as he describes the ‘failed policies of the past’ under Bush, Clinton, Bush 41 and Ronald Reagan when a total of close to 50 million new jobs were created in America as ‘trickle-down economics’. He has vowed to never allow the United States to return to ‘those days’ which were nothing but loaded with heady job growth for the most part of the last 30 years.


September’s coming, so let’s look at the latest way our federal government screws up public schools.

Black students are suspended or expelled far more than white students – 350% more. President Obama’s Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, claims it’s because of white racism. I think that’s baloney. Black students are disciplined more because they misbehave more, but it doesn’t matter what I think. Liberals are in charge of the US Department of Education, most state education departments, and all teachers’ unions. What they think is what matters. They think they can solve the problem the same way they try to solve so many other social problems – by blaming it on racism and spending money on it.

The result is always the same too: It gets worse and we go further into debt because nearly half the money they spend is borrowed from China. Obama Administration officials and civil rights advocates like to repeat one phrase, according to Heather MacDonald, writing in her City Journal essay Undisciplined: the “school to prison pipeline.”

They think racist schools steer black students to prison. They believe white racist discrimination causes poverty and poverty causes crime. They’re completely stuck in that sixties mindset and cannot think any other way. That would be fine, but they’re running our schools and spending billions. MacDonald points out that white boys are suspended or expelled twice as often as Asian or Pacific Islander boys, but administration officials ignore that. It doesn’t fit their world view. Neither do they seem to notice correlation between black misbehavior in schools and the black murder rate. “The homicide rate among males between the ages of 14 and 17 is nearly ten times higher for blacks than for whites and Hispanics combined,” writes MacDonald. “Such data make no impact on the Obama administration and its orbiting advocates, who apparently believe that the lack of self-control and socialization that results in this disproportionate criminal violence does not manifest itself in classroom comportment as well.” Why the blindness? It’s easy to explain. These officials are all devout members of the multicultural priesthood. They mustn’t look at cultural clues among black students like fatherlessness, drug use, (c)rap music, domestic violence, graffiti, sexual behavior, “ebonics,” generational welfare, domestic violence – to name just a few. It’s okay to bring up those things if you’re going to blame them on racism, but if you were to suggest that the black community itself might share responsibility for any of it – or might even foster it in some cases – you’d be quickly labeled “racist” and shunned.


This lazy August morning while many Americans are on vacation blissfully detached from current events, one of President’s Obama’s most radical transformations of the American landscape takes hold. A lawless, unlegislated illegal alien amnesty becomes reality today as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) begins to officially accept applications (no personal interview required) from almost 2 million illegal aliens seeking “deferred action.”

Americans won’t like the amnesty and they won’t like how it was done, but they’re not to blame. Only Congress has the power to act against a president who throws the constitutional system into chaos by nullifying the laws Congress has enacted and governs by imperial edicts. Congress is out of town now, but frankly, even when they were in town they were out of touch and unwilling to challenge President Obama’s usurpation of their exclusive plenary authority over immigration policy.

Today’s amnesty is the dénouement of the backdoor tactics this president has been peddling since taking office and should have been no surprise to Congress.

Congress needs to wake up, show up, stand up and remind itself that they rejected the DREAM Act as recently as December 2010.

HERBERT LONDON: FROM SOCIAL SECURITY TO FEDERAL BENEFIT In the parlance of Orwellian newspeak words often mean the opposite of their seeming intent. The Internal Revenue Service is anything but a service. Now we have yet another government inspired contradiction. Social Security has been transformed into the “Federal Benefits Payment.” One might well ask how an insurance arrangement in which the recipient […]



Those who doubt the Islamic sympathies of Barack Obama should pay attention to the meal breaking the fast of Ramadan that he hosted at the White House last Friday night.
Were invited all the ambassadors of member countries of the Organization of Islamic Conference in Washington, without exception, the two Muslim congressmen, Andre Carson (I do not know his Muslim name, taken from his conversion) and Keith Ellison, all Muslim members of the Obama administration (and there are some numbers, starting with Dalia Mogahed, “head of religious dialogue with Obama, a fervent supporter of sharia, crafter of rapprochement between the U.S. State Department and the Muslim Brotherhood, and Huma Abeidin, first assistant of the same Hillary Clinton State Department, former Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, the organization itself linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and co-led by Omar Abdullah and she Nasseef, former President of the Muslim World League, Rabita Trust’s founder, dissolved after it was discovered by U.S. law that funded jihadist terrorism).


Three Israeli universities among world’s 100 best universities
Hebrew University, Technion and Weizmann Institute all make it into the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities’ Top 100
Israeli institutions fair even better in scientific study, with four institutions considered among the best places in the world for higher education.

Three of Israel’s seven universities have made it into the Academic Ranking of World Universities list of the world’s top 100 academic institutions.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem came in at 53rd place, with the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology listed in the 78th slot and the Weizmann Institute of Science in 93rd place.

The ranking, commonly known as the Shanghai ranking, was the first world university ranking to be published, and has been compiled since 2003 and updated annually.

Israel performs even better when it comes to scientific studies, with four institutions among the leading 100 institutions. The Hebrew University is ranked 38th, the Technion 39th, Tel Aviv University 51st and the Weizmann Institute comes in 75th place. The Hebrew University is also considered the 16th best institution globally to study mathematics.

Over 50 voters registered in one California household
Veteran activist John Mancino, who once campaigned for Robert F. Kennedy, decried voter fraud aided and abetted by the Democratic Party.

Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Robert Simpson ruled on August 15 that a law requiring voters to present identification at the polls could be implemented on Election Day. This came despite objections from some sectors that had argued that the law had not met the burden of proof that it did not violate the state constitution. Judge Simpson said that voters who currently have not identification still have time to obtain it. The state is providing identification free of charge to those who need it.

Those objecting to the law, which was passed by the Pennsylvania legislature, claimed that it was an attempt by Republicans to derail President Obama’s chances of carrying the Keystone State this fall. They claimed that possibly thousands of citizens could effectively be disenfranchised because of the voter I.D. law.

Judge Simpson’s finding said, “Petitioners did not establish . . . that disenfranchisement was immediate or inevitable,” adding, “I was convinced that Act 18 will be implemented by Commonwealth agencies in a nonpartisan, evenhanded manner.” The 70-page opinion written by the veteran judge makes it likely that Pennsylvanians will be required to show specific forms of photo ID. Other states already require photo identification at the polls. Michigan, for example, requires I.D. but also allows voters to sign an affidavit in lieu of identification. The Pennsylvania decision will be appealed to the state’s supreme court. Since one of the high court’s members is currently suspended, there are now six members on the bench. A tie vote would uphold Judge Simpson’s finding. The bench is currently divided equally between Democrats and Republicans.


This document contains Walid’s extensive translations and analysis of original Arabic sources. He explains how the Abedin’s IMMA (Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs) has links beyond the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda directly to the Wahhabist House of Saud. Walid shows how the IMMA/Wahhabists have seized control of our government. It should be NO surprise that Obama bowed to Saudi King Abdullah. Thanks Janet L…..

I thought I had it all fgured out [here], that Huma Abedin and her family, for years, were

only working for Muslim Brotherhood interests. After all, I spent a week re-sifting through
scores of Arabic sources, which confrmed that Huma’s mother Saleha was not simply a
member, but a leader in Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood’s Sisterhood branch. The Abedins
were for decades affliated with an al-Qaeda fnancier named Abdullah Omar Naseef,
who had appointed the Abedins to start the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA),
not that working with this man was not problematic enough, but still, who was behind
Naseef and what were the goals of this IMMA establishment?
Other issues just weren’t adding up; these fsh were looking larger by the day –
much larger than I had previously thought. I watched politicians who sided with Huma,
none of whom spent a nickel trying to refute McCarthy’s court-style presentation [here];
they responded with familiar one-line rebuttals that lacked the acknowledgment of facts.
There is also something terribly wrong when fve members of congress are being muzzled
as ordained by the highest powers in both that establishment and in the State
Department. Newt Gingrich and a few other patriots had the common sense to fnally
come out of the closet, but not without ridicule.
Was Huma a big fsh to have the might of some American politicians come to her
defense or is there some other player in the mix that the American people are not aware
of ? Even President Barack Obama felt it necessary to pay tribute and voice strong
support for Huma Abedin during a Muslim Iftar dinner on August 10th, saying that the
top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been “nothing less than extraordinary
in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear.”
Just who are all of these elite and powerful bowing to? The only powerful man
that a United States president would bow to was when Obama bowed to the King of
Saudi Arabia treating him as if he was the King of Kings. Could it be possible that this
far-away place holds the power to make the kings of the earth bow?
