Just what America needs … more news analysis from the Jewish perspective.
Newsbusters published the transcript of Brennan’s liberal doggedness during a showdown with Sarah Huckabee Sanders last year revolving around gun control and Sandy Hook.
Seventy years after white baseball fans hurled racial insults at Jackie Robinson, that game is heavily nonwhite.
Whites prefer to see athletes who look like themselves, just as blacks prefer to see athletes who look like them.
It’s natural and normal.
Washington Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly was in the penalty box after a third period fight with a Blackhawks defenseman on Saturday night in Chicago when four Blackhawks fans started taunting him in unison.
“Basketball, basketball, basketball,” they chanted.
Charlie Rose was the sexual harasser du jour yesterday, with the veteran TV newsman taking the big headline on the Drudge Report.
Today the headline will feature some new male or some new accusations about somebody as the moral panic, created by (((feminists))) rolls along.
Veteran broadcaster Charlie Rose, who has been accused of sexually harassing a spate of women, says he didn’t do anything wrong, in so many words.
TMZ reporters tracked down the 75-year-old outside of his NYC apartment and grilled him about the recent accusations that he harassed and groped colleagues so often that his shoulder rubs were known as “the crusty paw” around the office.
The tabloid photographer asked him if he had anything to say to the eight women who have accused him of “wrongdoings.” His response? “It’s not wrongdoings,” Rose muttered before quickly entering his apartment.
This response is in stark contrast to the apologetic tone he struck yesterday in a written statement on the allegations, which accuse him of making lewd phone calls and strutting in front of colleagues naked, among other acts.
“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed,” he wrote. “I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that.”
“I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”
Rose has been suspended by CBS, while PBS and Bloomberg have both announced they will stop distributing his eponymous show, in light of the allegations.
Vox reports on the specifics of the accusations against Charlie.
Eight accusers describe rage, touching, and even nudity (ugh!) by Charlie.
The thing about Charlie is that he’s a liberal of the particularly disgusting type. He always seemed to have a superior air of the “My sh*t doesn’t stink” variety.
That said, Charlie wasn’t too far from being just an ordinary run-of-the-mill womanizer. I wonder how many women that he had sex with are not coming forward because it was consensual sex that took place because they wanted a job, a raise, a promotion, or just to be able to tell their girlfriends that they had sex with somebody famous.
BTW, here’s a photo of Charlie with his wife. Is she (gasp!) Jewish? She looks Jewish. LOL.
As I’ve written before, I’m opposed to firing people for expressing a political opinion, For a change it’s a leftist Jew who was fired.
CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night.
“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” a CBS spokeswoman told Fox News.
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network’s now-former vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 520 others to hospitals.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”
Geftman-Gold is presumably referring to Sandy Hook, which occurred in Newtown, Conn. back in 2012. A 20-year-old gunman, Adam Lanza, killed 20 children and six adults during the tragic event that sparked intense political debates regarding gun control.
Geftman-Gold did not work directly with the network’s news division. According to her LinkedIn bio, Geftman-Gold worked at CBS since September 2016 and graduated from the prestigious Columbia University law school in 2000.
From a personal point of view, setting aside principles relating to free speech, it’s satisfying to see Haley get the boot.
The sound is too low, but the hate for traditional white Christian America comes across loud and clear.
Four minutes of asswipe Colbert is four minutes too many.
Stephen Colbert kicked off this years Emmy Awards with a musical number that paid tribute to the greatest shows on television (with plenty of not-so-subtle jabs at President Trump).
The Emmy host was challenged by Blackish star Anthony Anderson and Mom star Allison Janney that he couldn’t sing about how television has never been better. And it was a challenged accepted.
Colbert sang that despite the troubles that exist in the world, the world is better on TV.
Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus made a musical cameo, singing “Imagine if your president was not belonged to Nazis.”
Colbert appeared with Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys of The Americans, singing how their show had “hotter spies” than the real-life “Russia inquiry” accompanied by an image of Trump’s meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin.
“Even treason’s better on TV,” they sang together.
Other cameos included Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, and Justin Hartley of This is Us, Tony Hale of Veep, and a politically-charged appearance by Chance The Rapper.
Bonus video: Colbert’s opening monologue:
Not funny! But watching an audience of fellow asswipes yucking it up with every cheap, unfunny joke is amusing. It was good to see the real Sean Spicer at the end.
Hillary Clinton gave an interview on Sunday. Her distaste for white working people shines through. It’s all about her.
Hillary Clinton said Sunday in her first TV interview since Election Day that she was just “gobsmacked, wiped out” after losing the presidential election to Donald Trump.
Clinton, who is releasing a new memoir Tuesday titled “What Happened” that points fingers and accepts responsibility for her defeat, also told CBS News’ “Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley that she won’t ever run for office again.
“I am done with being a candidate, but I’m not done with politics because I believe that our country’s future is at stake,” Clinton said during the interview at her home in Chappaqua, New York.
Asked how she was doing, Clinton confessed that the loss still stings.
“I think I am good, but that doesn’t mean I’m complacent or resolved about what happened,” she said. “It’s still painful.”
She said on election night she felt like she let everybody down.
“I had not drafted a concession speech,” Clinton said. “I had been working on a victory speech.”
She said post-election she went off on a “frenzy of closet cleaning,” drinking Chardonnay and walks in the woods. She recommends doing yoga.
“I couldn’t feel, I couldn’t think,” Clinton said. “I was just gobsmacked, wiped out.”
Clinton said she never thought of not going to Trump’s inauguration as a former first lady.
“And so there I was on the platform, you know, feeling like an out of body experience,” she said. “And then this speech [by Trump], a cry from the white nationalist gut.”
She said that during the campaign Trump was quite successful “referencing a nostalgia” that would give hope, comfort and settle grievances for millions of people upset about gains made by others.
“Millions of white people,” Pauley asked.
“Yeah, millions of white people,” Clinton replied.
Clinton also defended her “basket of deplorables” comment about Trump supporters in the interview.
“Well, I thought Trump was behaving in a deplorable manner,” she said. “I thought a lot of his appeals to voters were deplorable. I thought his behavior as we saw on the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape was deplorable. And there were a large number of people who didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them.”
Clinton said she didn’t believer her deplorable comment energized Trump voters.
“They were already energized,” she said.
Clinton said she practiced what she would do if Trump came up behind her during the debates and then she said when he did at the second debate in St. Louis, she became flustered.
“It was so discombobulating,” she told Pauley. “And so — while I’m answering questions, my mind is going, ‘OK, do I keep my composure? Do I act like a president? Am I the person that people can trust in the end to make hard decisions?’ Or do I wheel around and say, ‘Get outta my space. Back up, you creep.’ Well, you know, I didn’t do the latter.”
The interview concluded with Clinton saying the U.S. had a reality show that led to the election of a president. “He ends up in the Oval Office,” she said of Trump .”He says, ‘Boy, it’s so much harder than I thought it would be. This is really tough. I had no idea.’ Well, yeah, because it’s not a show. It’s real. It’s reality, for sure.”
“What Happened” is being published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS.
The memoir, which dishes on Bernie Sanders, former FBI Director James Comey and Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as Trump, has some Democratic Party wags worried.
Coming so soon after the election, it’s poised to re-live the 2016 campaign drama in the media for weeks, if not months, to come – as Democrats try to prepare for the 2018 midterms while also battling the Trump agenda.
Clinton already is taking some criticism — complete with mockery from late-night television hosts — for planning book-tour stops in the Great Lakes and Midwestern states that ultimately cost her the election. But she writes that her campaign had more staff and spent more on advertising in both Michigan and Pennsylvania, two states she lost, than President Barack Obama did when he won them in 2012.
She acknowledges that “if there’s one place where we were caught by surprise, it was Wisconsin,” saying that polls showed her ahead until the end. But while she did not visit the state in the fall, she noted that her surrogates blanketed the state.
In Wisconsin, Democratic pollster Paul Maslin called it a “bitter irony” that Clinton is now trying to reach voters — or consumers — in states he believes her campaign mostly ignored.
But he said it’s ultimately a sideshow from a has-been.
Here’s hoping that her book (which was surely ghostwritten) is a great big bomb.
Steve Bannon may be a political genius but even geniuses get it wrong sometimes.
James Comey needed to be fired because he’s corrupt. He was Hillary’s puppet. The world should not have to live with an FBI headed by a Clinton puppet.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a new interview with “60 Minutes” that the firing of James Comey as FBI director was the “biggest mistake in modern political history.”
In an unaired portion of the interview, Charlie Rose asked Bannon a line of questions about Comey’s May 9 firing and the subsequent hiring of Robert Mueller as special counsel.
“Someone said to me that you described the firing of James Comey as the biggest mistake in political history,” Rose told Bannon.
“That would probably be too bombastic even for me, but maybe modern political history,” replied Bannon, who resumed his position as chairman of Breitbart News after he left the White House last month.
“The firing of James Comey was the biggest mistake in modern political history?” Rose repeated.
“If you’re saying that that’s associated with me then I’ll leave it at that,” Bannon said.
Bannon also said that “there’s no doubt” that Comey’s firing set the stage for Mueller, a former FBI director, to be hired to oversee the Russia investigation.
Had Comey remained on the job, “we would not have the Mueller investigation, would not have the Mueller investigation in the breadth that clearly Mr. Mueller is going,” Bannon said.
Bannon also said that he does not believe that Mueller should be fired, an idea that Trump has reportedly discussed with some advisers. Asked about those reports, Bannon said “there’s nothing I ever heard like that.”
Comey’s firing, which came about a week after he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, set off a chain reaction that led to Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.
Because Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a member of the Trump campaign, had recused himself from the Russia investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was in charge of making decisions related to the probe. But Rosenstein came under fire because of a letter he wrote to Trump supporting Comey’s firing. Rosenstein responded by choosing Mueller to directly oversee the sprawling Russia inquiry.
Bannon was also asked about reports that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner supported Comey’s firing. But the operative avoided the question, saying that “they’ll have to find that out either through the media or through the investigation. I don’t know.”
Mueller is a worrisome snake in the grass. But Trump will have to deal with him when and if he fabricates charges that support his Deep State bosses’ desire to be rid of Trump
