” Comedians often aim their jokes at conservatives, but not this time. Comedian Jim Norton attacked Al Sharpton, host of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation,” and his network for hypocritically promoting racial and homophobic vitriol.
Norton criticized Sharpton and MSNBC while on Nov. 19’s HuffPostLive. He claimed that MSNBC exhibits a double standard where they accept certain offensive behavior by individuals such as Sharpton, but censor contributors like Alec Baldwin. He also attributed a similar hypocrisy to Hollywood’s conception of political correctness.
Norton, known for his popular radio show “Opie & Anthony,” get slamming Sharpton, saying he’s “been an absolute pig for many years, and he gets away with it because everyone’s afraid just to tell him exactly what a complete a**hole he is.”
When asked about MSNBC host’s Alec Baldwin’s recent homophobic remarks, Norton said that he had “no problem with Alec Baldwin.” Instead, his problem is “with MSNBC and they mete out punishment arbitrarily.” He criticized MSNBC for punishing Baldwin, while ignoring the “jackass” Al Sharpton. MSNBC’s recent blind eye towards Martin Bashir is certainly an example of this double standard.”
” A THR investigation has found that, unbeknownst to the public, these incidents on Hollywood’s most prominent productions are but two of the troubling cases of animal injury and death that directly call into question the 136-year-old Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit’s assertion that “No Animals Were Harmed” on productions it monitors. Alarmingly, it turns out that audiences reassured by the organization’s famous disclaimer should not necessarily assume it is true. In fact, the AHA has awarded its “No Animals Were Harmed” credit to films and TV shows on which animals were injured during production. It justifies this on the grounds that the animals weren’t intentionally harmed or the incidents occurred while cameras weren’t rolling.
The full scope of animal injuries and deaths in entertainment productions cannot be known. But in multiple cases examined by THR, the AHA has not lived up to its professed role as stalwart defenders of animals — who, unlike their human counterparts, didn’t themselves sign up for such work. While the four horse deaths on HBO’s Luck made headlines last year, there are many extraordinary incidents that never bubble up to make news.
A Husky dog was punched repeatedly in its diaphragm on Disney’s 2006 Antarctic sledding movie Eight Below, starring Paul Walker, and a chipmunk was fatally squashed in Paramount’s 2006 Matthew McConaughey-Sarah Jessica Parker romantic comedy Failure to Launch. In 2003, the AHA chose not to publicly speak of the dozens of dead fish and squid that washed up on shore over four days during the filming of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Crew members had taken no precautions to protect marine life when they set off special-effects explosions in the ocean, according to the AHA rep on set.”
This appears to be another case of the all-pervasive progressive establishment covering each other’s backsides with what constitutes a willful pattern of lies and deception aimed at propagating the liberal myth of moral superiority . The fact that the very organization that brags of being for animal rights over all is willing to offer it’s endorsement , in the face of blatant violations of it’s core principles , to the Hollywood media establishment leaves one scratching one’s head in wonder . Wonder at the hypocrisy of it all and wonder at what sort of quid pro quo takes place behind the scenes that makes the American Humane Association facilitate movie maker’s recurrent animal abuse .
We suspect , but have not found any proof that the donor lists of the AHA are heavily populated by the likes of Weinsteins , Spielbergs , and other such Hollywood movers and shakers thus fending off undue criticism and/or bad publicity for any animal mishaps that might occur . For those who possess a more acute financial mind and would care to dig deeper into the matter here are links to AHA’s 2012 annual report , audited financial statement and IRS form 990 as well as a link to their home page .
The catalogued list of AHA ignored animal abuse and fatalities goes on , read the whole thing .

“Change” Is Officially Dead: Obama Scrubs Web Of 2008 Campaign Promises Including Whistleblower Protection…
” Amid the Obama administration’s crackdown against whistleblowers, Change.gov, the 2008 website of the Obama transition team laying out the candidate’s promises, has disappeared from the internet.
The Sunlight Foundation notes that it last could be viewed on June 8, which was two days after the first revelations from Edward Snowden (who had then not yet revealed himself) about the NSA’s phone surveillance program. One of the promises Obama made on the website was on “whistleblower protections:” “
” For all the pathetic race-hustlers who propagandized this case into a way to push their political agenda, including Barack Obama, these are th consequences of your shameful race-pimping.The blood of any victims is on your hands.”
” Madonna recently appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote her upcoming concert event, Madonna: The MDNA Tour. During the interview Madonna was asked about the use of prop guns during one part of her show (a part of the show which has drawn criticism from anti gun groups). Elizabeth Vargas asked the singer if she planned on changing or removing that part of the show, Madonna said absolutely not.
According to BPR here is the exchange,
“That would be like asking people to not have guns in action movies,” she said. “I mean the thing is, guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
“Rep. John Larson (D., Conn.), is saying that “this is simply not fair” – as key staff members head for the exits to avoid Obamacare.
… many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain” and notes that “[t]he problem is far more acute in the House, where lawmakers and aides are generally younger and less wealthy.”
Mr Larson , we are of the opinion that there is little brain to drain in Congress . Politics is a magnet for the mediocre and you are living proof . The truly smart excel in the real world and have no need of attaching themselves to the public teat .
” What? Obamacare disproportionally hurts those with lower incomes? It may come as a surprise, but it shouldn’t. We’ve known this since before the legislation even passed.
More to the point, why did Rep. Larson vote to impose on the country a health coverage system that “is simply not fair”?
We hope you and your fellow Reps and Senators choke on it . That will be “fair” .

Koch LA Times Buyout Enrages Protesters: What We Saw at the “Save Our News” Rally
Published on May 30, 2013
” Protesters gathered outside of the Los Angeles Times building on Wednesday to speak out against the potential sale of the newspaper and other Tribune Company properties to the Koch brothers. Reason TV was on the scene to find out why the potential sale was so upsetting to those gathered and whether or not they though it appropriate for the city government to take action against the Times.
Answers ranged from a fear of the Times being transformed into a right-wing propaganda machine to a general distrust of billionaires and/or large corporations owning media companies (despite the fact that the Tribune Company is, of course, a large corporation and billionaires besides the Kochs are interested in the purchase).

” Faced by another night of terror at the hands of predominantly immigrant rioters,Swedes grown tired of the police’s inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets Friday night to defend their neighborhoods.
The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of homeowners and concerned citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.
In the Stockholm suburb of Tumba the police decided to abandon their earlier non-intervention policy as a large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.
” – It makes me sick to see the police clamp down on us Swedes with full force and without warning, using nightsticks and tear gas, while they don’t do a damn thing about the immigrants. We are only trying to help maintain order, while the immigrants set cars and buildings on fire”, said a young man who wished to remain anonymous.”

” The inimitable Nancy Pelosi has added yet another casualty of sequestration to the ridiculous list of “forced cuts” created by the Democrats in their continuing effort to blame Republicans for the budget impasse.
She can’t travel to Iraq on Mother’s Day to thank America’s moms and grandmothers for their service to our country:
“Every year for the past few years on Mother’s Day I’ve taken a delegation to Afghanistan – or Iraq – to say thank you to our moms – and by the way, our grandmothers – who are serving there – to also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America’s families. I won’t be going this particular weekend because we don’t have – you know, under sequestration – we don’t have (inaudible).” “
” The party that swept into power on promises of transparency and accountability scrambled Wednesday to circle wagons in an extravagant attempt to protect administration officials, the White House and the woman many Democrats hope will be their next nominee for president.
Congressional Democrats strenuously tried covering up the inquiry into the botched handling and dishonest aftermath of the terrorist attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi that left our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead.
It was a performance the likes of which have not been seen in this town since the darkest days of the Iraq War when Republicans on Capitol Hill scraped and scrounged for any sort of defense that could be made of the Bush administration and the mountains of bad news that kept emerging from Iraq.
A Democratic Congress, we were promised back then, would be different. Democrats vowed to be a check on the White House and the administration no matter who was president. Turns out, that was just something that sounded good in the heat of an election campaign.”
” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) wrote Tuesday he believes major revelations about the lead up to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, are imminent, in a Facebook message:
“I think the dam is about to break on Benghazi. We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks.
“We’re going to find political manipulation seven weeks before an election. We’re going to find people asleep at the switch when it comes to the State Department, including Hillary Clinton.”
” While appearing on the Stephanie Miller radio program on Monday, Lee Papa, a liberal pundit who goes by the name of the “Rude Pundit” suggested that a missile strike on theNRA convention in Houston would have “taken out” most of Obama’s problems,Newsbusters reported. Worse yet, Miller agreed.
“You know I was thinking this weekend, if Barack Obama is really as evil as everybody says he is just one errant missile shot in Houston would really have taken out most of his problem,” Papa said.
“Yeah,” Miller responded.
“Barack Obama isn’t just the greatest president ever, he’s also an especially kind man. After all, His Worship has every right to blow political opponents to smithereens, yet repeatedly declines the opportunity,” Newsbusters said.”
” Marshawn Hogans has an important announcement….
Disclosure: This video was created in light of Jason Collins, an NBA Basketball Player, coming out as the first Gay sport player. With so much attention from the progressive left of his coming out, I found it disturbing how much accolade he received just because he was Gay. This announcement for some reason warranted a call from President Obama and he was called Heroic. So in an effort to match Jason Collins heroic effort, I decided to come out as a Black Conservative. It was not my intention to label myself as a Black Conservative but to give attention to the ridicule that Black Conservatives receive from the Black Community for being a conservative. I believe it is harder to come out as a Black Conservative versus being Gay and felt it was necessary to display this motion with my video. I hope you enjoy.”
