Pamela Geller, executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative sparred with CNN host Alisyn Camerota the morning after two Islamic terrorists were shot dead by a local policeman in a foiled mass murder attack outside the Draw Muhammad cartoon event, in Garland Texas. Although the purpose of the event was to stand up for free speech and our First Amendment rights, many in the media attacked Ms. Geller and the event itself accusing her of inciting violence against Muslims.
In this clip, which covers about the last quarter of the interview, Geller explains that speech, no matter how offensive it may be to some, is no excuse for violence, and that the fear of violence has lead to political correctness and intimidation.
reporters simply regurgitated the press release. They didn’t ask: Who’s that shady guy standing next to Bill? What are his interests? How much money has he given to, or raised for, Bill, Hillary and their foundation? And what favorable treatment did the shady guy subsequently receive from Hillary?
When you’re a political reporter, complexity is boring. Curiosity takes work. Asking questions and looking up information can lead to dead ends.
It’s much easier to do gaffe patrol. Go to press conferences. Quote party hacks who call you every day with juicy little observations. Or, when all else fails, simply write down your opinions and call it “analysis” or attribute your thoughts to “critics.”
Thank goodness, then, for Peter Schweizer and his blockbuster expose “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” (Very rich: The pair have made at least $136.5 million since 2001).
The details of the Clinton operation vary, but the overall M.O. is fairly consistent, he writes.
One: Dodgy rich businessman, often a foreigner in the middle of a mega-deal in some corrupt country, possibly one run by a dictator, writes a check that buys him the status of friend of Bill Clinton (FOB). The check is payable to the Clinton Foundation or to Bill himself, as an honorarium for a meaningless idealistic speech that is essentially a homily at a whorehouse.
Two: When the cameras are turned off, Bill receives ultra-luxurious travel on someone else’s dime and attends a lavish party in his honor held by some dictator or shady businessman connected to the new FOB. Talks go on behind closed doors.
Three: Millions of dollars of donations start flowing into the Clinton Foundation from the FOB and associates. Continue reading at nypost.com.
This photo says so much more than looting and burning of a city. Amazing. Human.
A partial transcript of the video: “We have a long way to go but I still believe in our system of justice and in the end justice will prevail. She doesn’t get the final say in this. She knows she’s not going to be able to prove all these charges beyond a reasonable doubt. This is George Zimmerman and the Duke lacrosse case all over again. A politically active district attorney or state’s attorney; You can tell the emotion in her voice. She almost did this with glee and that’s why I believe like they do when I say they, the officers union and the attorney that we just heard from. She needs to remove herself from this case. I hope this state’s attorney general gets involved in this and sees the error of her ways. The smart thing for her to do is to recuse herself and name a special prosecutor.”
On Thursday, Fox News reporter Leland Vittert confrontated Al Sharpton and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. He asked the officers who were present why they were protecting the mayor from simple questions, and not protecting businesses from rioters.
Post continues below video.
On Monday, Alveda King, niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., penned an open letter to the mayor, admonishing her for coddling the rioters. Alveda King get’s it:
My dear Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
Your invitation to “give space for those who want to destroy” is unbelievable. This interpretation of rights to free speech is dangerous Ma’am.
In 1963, my father Rev. AD King, after the firebombing of our home in Birmingham, Alabama, urged hostile protestors to abandon violence and turn to God in prayer instead. Thank God they listened to him, and the even greater voice of his brother, my Uncle MLK, during those turbulent days.
Now, you are inviting violence to your city? Who, Ma’am, will incur the moral and economic costs of picking up the pieces? The innocent taxpayers?
We at www.restorethedream2015.com are very concerned. Ma’am, people are not entitled to pillage and destroy. That is just plain wrong. Our affiliates on the ground in Baltimore are willing to help quell the violent tide. And make no mistake about it; something must be done to save our cities.
How did we get here? Where do we go now? Think about this: Baltimore 1965 vs. Baltimore 2015, compare and contrast:
1. Money spent on public schools then vs. now.
2. Amount spent on social welfare payments then vs. now.
3. The size of Government Bureaucracy then vs. now.
4. The number of black elected officials then vs. now.
5. Number of black children born in Baltimore to an intact nuclear family.
6. Number of Black lives MIA by abortion and incarceration.
If you look at all six questions/comparisons what you will see is the only statistics to have decreased (1965 to 2015) is the number of black children born in intact nuclear families.
Something is wrong. We must stop the killing and advance the healing now!
Surely they could buy their votes cheaper than that!

Eighteen months after its launch, Al Jazeera America (AJA) is still losing gobs of money, and according to numbers provided by the New York Post, spending $73,519 per viewer. Since its August 2013 debut, AJA has spent a whopping $2 billion and brought in only around $15 million in advertising revenue. The result is an average of only 27,000 total viewers. According to my admittedly shaky math, that’s $73,519 per viewer. Read more: at breitbart.com.
Many people may be confused about how to tell a “legitimate” protestor from a trouble maker or even a terrorist. This handy guide to free speech for Progressives should help! For example, the Gyrocopter pilot who violated numerous laws and endangered lives - NOT A TERRORIST! The million tea party “people” who marched on Congress under a permit in a lawfully organized demonstration – Terrorist! Here’s how to tell. The Gyrocopter pilot worked for the post office, so is a government worker – NOT a terrorists! The tea party people want Congress to read bills before they pass them – Terrorists! The gyrocopter pilot wanted to STOP companies from spending money on political campaigns – Folk Hero! the Tea party “protestors” want government to cut spending – TERRORISTs! See how it works?

Me thinks there’s a there there!
The former public face of Bill Clinton’s White House—and current host of ABC News’ This Week—George Stephanopoulos was floored as two prominent journalists and the Republican Speaker of the House from his Clinton days, Newt Gingrich, laid out for him just how bad the “Clinton Cash” book is for his old bosses.
During the show’s roundtable panel after Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer appeared on the show for a lengthy interview, Stephanopoulos teamed with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile in an attempt to discredit Schweizer. But it started with Stephanopoulos making a shocking admission: Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign wouldn’t send out any official surrogates or spokespeople to defend her on this scandal.

From Judge Jeanine’s OpeningStatement on April 25th, 2015:
“I’m gonna shock you. Hillary Clinton without a doubt, hands down, the absolute best CEO of a public company: ruthless, profit driven and all about the money. But if you’re looking for a different kind of CEO one to run the greatest nation on earth and bring back America, now teetering on the brink of socialism to be president of the United States, Hillary Clinton is the worst possible choice. She in fact is the person to walk away from. And what makes you think she cares about you? This woman only cares about herself, money and her next step up the political ladder. And if a president will only care about her legacy and if you don’t see that from events at this past week then you are exactly the kind tuned out voter that Hillary is hoping to turn out in droves in 2016. So what am I talking about? I’m talking about. influence-peddling on a global scale and the setting American foreign policy to coincide with the flow of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and millions directly to Bill Clinton and ultimately Hillary in speaking fees…”
The Judge then went on to elaborate.
On his Thursday evening radio program, following the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General of the United States, Mark Levin names the ten Republican RINO senators who voted for her confirmation. Since she was confirmed by a 56 to 43 vote margin with only a simple majority required, the Republicans had more than enough potential votes to stop this Eric Holder clone from taking office and assisting in Obama’s fundamental transformation of the United States of America. When will the GOP Establishment stop throwing We the People under the bus?
Megyn Kelly shared new information tonight about a series of terrifying raids which were reportedly a form of political retribution against supporters of Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI).
She explained that a few of the people who were raided came forward and spoke to the National Review about what they experienced.
Kelly reported that Cindy Archer had a raid conducted on her home when she was sound asleep one night.
Archer claims that more than a dozen police officers were yelling and pounding on her door.
She said that police would not tell her why they were there as they ransacked her home, Kelly reported.
Police officers reportedly seized Archer’s computers and phones and told her that she couldn’t tell anyone what happened.
Eric O’Keefe, a member of the Wisconsin Club for Growth, told Kelly tonight that people were “targeted based on a theory which is completely unsupportable under Wisconsin law.”
He explained that they were attacked because “the left was tired of losing election after election after election.”

Speaking at the New Hampshire Republican Leadership Summit on April 18, 2015, Senator Ted Cruz blasts President Obama for repeatedly refusing to identify Islamic terrorism by name and going to any extreme to call it something else: “If only the terrorists attacked a golf course, that might get the White House’s attention!”

Madam Candidate of the People was in her magical mystery conversion van, flying over the cornfields of Iowa taking enemy fire. This required evasive maneuvers that launched her coterie of handmaidens, purse-holders, and security guards all around the plush leather cabin of the magical, age-reversing van.
Heroically, Madam Candidate of the People finally landed in war-torn Iowa and dodged down the runway, pocked with mortar-blown craters. The master sorceress of disappearing emails and reappearing Rose Law Firm records then switched her magical mystery conversion van from flying mode to driving mode.
Without regard for her own safety or self-respect, Madam Candidate of the People then embarked on a tour of the malnourished and impoverished urchins of the squalid state of Iowa.
Before arriving in Iowa, she and her handmaiden Huma, donning dark sunglasses, had gone undercover in an Ohio Chipotle, understanding that this was supposed to be very popular with The People. She ordered something called a burrito bowl, also popular among The People, especially the Mexican-oriented ones that are most highly valuable to anyone in Madam Candidate of the People’s present line of work.

Even with all the buzz about the soon to be released book Clinton Cash, by investigative journalist Peter Schwiezer, Hillary Clinton continues to sidestep any
tough questions. The book which has been touted by the New York Times and the Washington Post, purportedly alleges Hillary Clinton accepted bribes in a ‘pay to play’ scheme while she was Secretary of State. I wonder how long it will be before the Teflon wears off? Can anyone say John Gotti? Or maybe it’s all just another vast right wing conspiracy?
