Journalism: If the mainstream press had any self-respect, presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley would be out of work today. Even by the media-bias standards we’ve come to expect, she set a new, unforgivable low.
In a pre-debate interview with the Baltimore Sun‘s David Zurawik, Crowley talked about how she saw her role as moderator.
In a wave of black-on-white crime since the February Trayvon Martin slaying, reports are emerging of dozens of brutal assaults by black mobs and assailants against white victims – and some attackers are citing the revenge for the Martin slaying as reason for their aggression.
Martin is the unarmed black teen who died after being shot by a Hispanic community-watch captain, George Zimmerman, in Sanford, Fla., sparking a wave of outrage o violence against whites long after the Feb. 26 incident.
On March 17 in Baltimore, Md., a white man was beaten, stripped naked and robbed. As a girl danced against him, a black man grabbed an item from the man’s pocket. When the victim attempted to recover his property, the man punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground, stripped his clothes off and taunted him.
Then one man in the mob, identifying himself on Twitter as “Lil Darren,” posted a video of the assault online, explaining: “me an[sic] my boys helped get justice fore[sic] trayvon.”
IronicSurrealism.com posted this tweet from “Lil Darren.”
In the video, a man named Aaron Parsons, 20, looked into the video camera while ridiculing the victim. He turned himself in to police after being linked to the incident. According to the Baltimore Sun, he has been charged with robbery, assault and other crimes.
Parsons’ attorney, Warren Brown, told the paper the suspect is a “good kid.”
“It’s not the punch that has aroused so much anger – it’s the humiliation after the punch, the disrobing of the guy and going through his pockets,” Brown said. “He wasn’t involved in any of that and has no real association with those people.”
Despite an apology from Parsons, Brown said his client would plead not guilty
The Sun reported:
A report on trade to the Soviets said in the weeks succeeding the 1964 election, “more than 200 businessmen made the journey to Moscow” and “a few U.S. firms, with a big assist from the State and Commerce Department were sending reps for extended stays of one to three months.” How well has that worked out for us? We now have a Marxist in the White House and the Chinese are subsidizing our national debt.
On the other hand, Congressman Ron Paul has promised to cut a trillion dollars from the federal budget in one year by eliminating five cabinet departments: Education, Energy, HUD, Commerce and Interior, ending foreign aid and corporate welfare and rolling back all other domestic spending to fiscal year 2006. Without government interference, jobs will automatically follow.
I’ve been watching all these clips of packed college auditoriums where Congressman Paul is making appearances – even left-wing Berkley where no conservative GOP presidential dared to set foot without being booed and yet Ron Paul was welcomed. These passionate, exciting college students who were Barack Obama votes in 2008 feel betrayed and may now be Ron Paul supporters. Of course,
Paul believes the “War on Drugs” has been a dismal failure and favors legalizing marijuana would be welcomed to these audiences. Congressman Paul has been faithful in giving out his message of freedom and liberty and state’s rights trumping centralized government and his message has been resonating. Suddenly we are having a new phrase re-introduced into the American vocabulary – Nullify now! States and individuals are rediscovering the 10th Amendment as a defense against tyrannical and unconstitutional measures taken by the fed – all thanks to Congressman Paul never giving up in spite of many odds. See http://www.nullifynow.com for additional information.
As the Christian Gospel song suggests,” He Was There All The Time”, about Jesus patiently waiting in line for sinners to come to him in repentance. While he doesn’t wear his Christianity on his sleeve, Congressman Ron Paul lives his faith and has been there all the time waiting patiently in line. I agree with Chuck Baldwin in his article THE MAN WHO SHOULD BE PRESIDENT. He says neither Romney nor Santorum have the remotest understanding of America’s real problems nor the courage and backbone to do anything about it if they did understand.

Barack Obama’s speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, has certainly made waves. Well-received by the mainstream media, The Baltimore Sun wrote that the President has finally found “his voice” while the ever-dour Bill Press said that Obama was “channeling Teddy Roosevelt.” Yet if talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is correct, the President was channeling someone also long-dead but a lot more red. The radio giant asserts that Obama has “outed” himself, in that he has “announced to the world in no uncertain terms that he is a socialist, if not a Marxist.”
What did Obama say that brought cheers from the Left and jeers from the Right? Among other things, he stated that our relatively free enterprise system not only “doesn’t work” — “it has never worked.”
…So our system shouldn’t be on trial here — Obama should be. But is it really fair to suggest he may be a Marxist? Or was there evidence for it all along?
