Yesterday, Cambridge police released the tapes of the 911 call that set up the confrontation between a Harvard professor and a cop that made national headlines.
Contrary to media reports, the caller did not mention the race of the two men that a neighbor thought she saw breaking into professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates' Harvard-owned house on July 16. She also didn't mention the word "backpacks" during the call.
Most of you probably never would have heard about this local matter if Barack Obama had not decided to make a racial issue out of it without knowing any of the facts.
The police reports posted on SmokingGun.com clearly shows a belligerent, pompous Skip Gates verbally abusing Sgt. James Crowley for doing his job. "Do You know who I am?" Gates shouted when Crowley asked to see his ID to prove he resided at that address.
When Sgt. Crowley informed Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in at that address, Gates asked, "Why, because I'm a black man in America?" Gates also demanded to know if Sgt. Crowley knew who he was messing with. Witnesses would later say it was almost as if Gates wanted to be arrested.
Gates heaped verbal abuse on Sgt. Crowley, calling him a racist for doing his job. Gates even hurled an insult at Sgt. Crowley's mother as he followed the officer outside and onto the porch. If anyone was exhibiting racist behavior it was Gates.
Obama didn't know any of these facts before sticking his foot in his mouth by referring to the Cambridge police as "acting stupidly."
Maybe Gates prefers that police not investigate any more calls of possible break-ins at at his home.
No, Rihanna wasn't shooting an umbrella ad yesterday. She was out & about in NYC taking in the sights. RiRi and her bodyguard (who was hired by Jay Z) made a stop a Bloomingdales and fast food spot Golden Crust. Yes, this is how a DIVA dresses when she's just chilling because she knows all eyes are on her at all times. Pseudo-celebs and other wannabe's should take notes. Photo: INF DAILY
I recive a lot of emails from clueless individuals asking why I am so negative toward their president Barack Obama. When I try to explain why a pathological liar and narcissist is dangerous for this country, they ignore me and instead, continue to defend him.
Here is a well-written comment left on the politically neutral blog Politico.com last week. It outlines exactly why some of us feel Obama is the wrong man to run this country. Some of you had better open your eyes or there won't be a free country left for your children to raise their children.
President Obama's first act was an order to shut down Guantanamo with no plan on what to do with the terrorists incarcerated there. In his campaign he said that he would change the way things were done in Washington; instead of banning lobbyists and career politicians he introduced an administration composed of people who were accepted as financial heads when they didn't even pay their taxes. A promise to reach across the aisle has turned into a policy of exclusion for the opposition.
We are told that spending of bailout funds will be well documented and we find out there is zero control or record of where $700 billion has been spent and the original problem of subprime mortgages is worse and banks are taking billions of our money while not fixing the problem. We are panicked into a $787 billion Stimulus which we are assured will hold unemployment below the 8% which would happen without this stimulus, and instead the 8% we tried to avoid is suddenly 9.5% and rising.
We are asked to give up our health insurance and choice of doctors for a far more expensive and government controlled health plan which will dictate our care and ration care to those the government decides need it most.
This has been a dismal record and the decisions made seem to continue to be made irregardless of the facts, the affordability or even the expected outcome even when estimates of failure are given by those within the administration. The desired result in each situation is not improvement of any problem, the desire is to take advantage of the problem to gain control. From banks to car companies the object is control. Huge carbon taxes have no useful objective except control. Establishing a far more expensive health system that offers poorer care has no advantage except to those who want to control another huge chunk of our lives.
The objective is to solidify control. Laws allowing unions to avoid secret ballots or to establish mandatory government arbitration are meant to unionize the majority of the workforce and gain more control. Allowing amnesty for illegal immigrants is a plan to add them to voter's lists to gain control. This is an undeniable theme which permeates this administration. They do not care that each of these things adversely affect everyone in the country, they do not care that these initiatives will destroy the economy. The only concern is that they be done to gain control.
As more and more people realize that they are getting the exact opposite of what they voted for, the faster Obama's numbers will drop. The question is will it be fast enough to save the country.
There's no chance that Barack Obama's universal health care initiative will get the votes needed to pass any time soon. But in the event that the bill does (by some miracle) make it through Congress, here's who ObamaCare will hurt the most:
Your elderly relatives:
Anyone over 65 in need of life-saving surgery will be offered the euthanasia option instead
The disabled and infirmed:
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuele's brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, is a "top health advisor" to Obama and holds two key positions within the Obama administration. Dr. Emanuel thinks doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously in upholding their duty to care for the elderly and disabled with little regard to the cost. Dr. Emanuel believes that "communitarianism" should dictate who gets treatment as a means of cutting costs.
He believes medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled and those who have a better chance of recovering to become productive citizens. For instance, patients with dementia (people who the Obama administration refers to as "mentally retarded") can not be expected to contribute to society, and therefore would not be approved for any costly surgery. Instead, the government would recommend euthanasia. Go here to read more.
When Barack Hussein Obama pulled the race card at the end of his nationally televised press conference last week, he made an egregious error by miscalculating the public's response.
Obama's approval ratings -- which were already the lowest in 6 months -- fell even lower after the presser. His overall approval rating is 48% -- the lowest ever recorded for him. And his disapproval rating is now at 39% -- the highest since he was elected.
The Constitution lawyer mistakenly thought that by aligning himself with blacks and Latinos in defense of his friend, Harvard professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr., that blacks and Latinos would help boost his sagging ratings and support his health care reform bill.
Sadly, that didn't happen.
Instead, many blacks and Hispanics who originally voted for Obama are now out of work and feeling dismay that the Hope & Change Obama promised them during his campaign was just a smoke screen to cover up his hidden socialist agenda.
What we saw during last week's presser was an arrogant man so full of himself that he thinks police officers are stupid and doctors don't know the difference between tonsillitis and allergies.
Obama is typical of all narcissists who find themselves in power: they grossly abuse it. Also typical of narcissists is to blame others for their problems. On Thursday night, it didn't take long for Obama to blame George Bush for the economy -- as he has done for the last 6 months. Blacks and Latinos are getting tired of his excuses.
Obama's ratings will continue to fall because Americans everywhere have taken notice that Obama is determined to ruin this great country with his socialist policies. That's what separates him from George Bush.
Sandra, am I going crazy or does the hands wrapped around Bow Wow's look like a man? I got these pics from his twitter. I thought someone photoshopped them but it came from his account on twitter look http://twitpic.com/photos/bowwow614 I swear them hands look like a man's hands and the fact he won't show her face makes me think its Nadia Milan, I'm not certain but most rappers love showing their jump-offs or beards off as trophys unless there is something to hide. I just need your trained eye to tell me I'm seeing things.
According to TMZ.com, paramedics say pop icon Michael Jackson, 50, was already dead when they arrived and they failed to recognize him after working on him for 15 minutes.
When paramedics arrived at a rented Bel Aire mansion, they found an unresponsive "frail, old, sickly looking man" who whose heart rhythm was flatlined when they hooked him up to an EKG monitor.
Sources told TMZ that "there was no electrical activity in his heart and Jackson showed no sign of life." Sources also say paramedics wanted to pronounce Jackson dead at the scene, but Jackson's friend and personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, insisted that they transport the body to the hospital.
But that doesn't jibe with established medical protocol. Paramedics can't pronounce anyone dead in the field. They must transport the body to a hospital where the ER doctor (or the patient's doctor) calls the time of death.
In the case of hospice patients who die at home, a nurse can pronounce the patient dead.
This unbelievably corny video of a wedding party dancing down the aisle has garnered over 6 million views on YouTube. I can't believe a priest agreed to participate in this foolishness. Is nothing sacred anymore?
