Breitbart V. Van Jones: “Bring it on Punks”

In Can You Hear Me Now?, Civil Lefts, Disappearing Ink on 24/03/2011 at 20:57

Andrew Breitbart (LIFE.com)

It is a comedic slight of history that Andrew Breitbart grew up on the mean streets of West L.A. rather than those of Flatbush or Dorchester. He has the irreverence of Muggs McGinnis and the cutting literacy of Norman Mailer, although the conservative web mogul is almost certainly not what Mailer had in mind when he thought of The New Journalism.

Nevertheless, Breitbart, a former progressive, is a street fighter, an in-the-trenches journalist provocateur who has become the bane of the New Left. While Glenn Beck received the accolades, it was Breitbart who kneecapped Van Jones, sending Obama’s communist-Truther advisor skulking out of the White House after a midnight resignation.

You gotta love this guy.

While Beck tends toward the “special,” Breitbart gives off at least the illusion that he’ll meet you in the alley to settle the matter — whatever the matter. It was Breitbart who offered $100,000 for even a snippet of footage that would show that tea party activists either spat on black members of Congress or uttered racial slurs at last year’s protest on the Capitol steps. There have been no takers to date.

Breitbart also supported James O’Keefe’s first forays into citizen journalism, resulting in Congress’s defunding of ACORN. He has since supported pro-lifer Lila Rose and another O’Keefe outing in their exposés of Planned Parenthood.

The aforementioned are a mere smattering of incidents that have propelled the Left to target Andrew Breitbart. He is one of the few conservatives in the country who can lather progressives into a vitriolic rage on the level of Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh.

And wouldn’t you know it, Van Jones is behind the latest attack.

Color of Change — don’t you just love these lefto names — an activist group co-founded by Jones, is calling for a boycott against the Huffington Post for publishing two recent entries by Breitbart.

Andrew Breitbart is a liar and a race-baiter,” wrote the organization. “Breitbart targets key people and institutions within our community, in particular those who have dared talk about the reality of racism and race in this country — Shirley Sherrod, the NAACP, President Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus. And he targets those that seek to increase Black political participation, like ACORN.”

By way of outing Color of Change, they are the group who immediately took up the cause of the Jenna Six, the black teenagers convicted of viciously beating white student Justin Barker, at a Louisiana high school in 2006.

Talk about race baiting. This outfit makes Al Sharpton look like the George Jefferson when it comes to fostering racial animus.

Van Jones is the ultimate race-baiter and this latest attack on Breitbart is just one of many in his quest to silence the free press and bring down democracy. While we have no particular love for the HuffPo, we all must resist the Left’s attempts to silence anyone with whom they disagree.

When Will Congress Defund the Criminal Planned Parenthood?

In Civil Lefts, Disappearing Ink, Weekly Rant on 01/02/2011 at 19:47

Lila Rose has done it again. The pro-life wunderkind has once again exposed Planned Parenthood, this time in a sting that apparently has the far left non-profit recipient of your tax dollars covering up sex crimes and giving misinformation to promote abortions.

Rose is the founder of the pro-life group, Live Action, who rose to prominence when she teamed up with future ACORN exposé journalist James O’Keefe to pull off a series of Planned Parenthood stings beginning in 2006. She released her findings on YouTube in 2009.

This time Rose documents what appear to be a series of outright felonies by Planned Parenthood workers and executives. Here is an excerpt from Lila Rose’s editorial on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government this morning:

We have also chronicled Planned Parenthood workers giving outright medical misinformation and manipulating vulnerable young women to purchase abortions. We’ve shown Planned Parenthood willing to accept funds for race-based abortions of unborn Black children. And for those who are willing to face the ultimate abuse of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, we’ve released a video revealing what abortion does to the defenseless unborn child.

O’Keefe’s exposé of ACORN eventually led to the defunding and downfall of that organization, but so far Rose’s outing of Planned Parenthood’s seedy practices has barely stirred the waters of congressional outrage, and we have to wonder why.

For years Planned Parenthood has been cloaked in respectability by its left-wing angels, such as Hillary Clinton and Teddy Kennedy, when in fact it is little more than a government-funded abortion mill. From the organization’s very inception, its founder Margaret Sanger, a blatant racist, set out to exterminate “undesirables,” through eugenics.

Sanger was an admirer Nazi Germany’s eugenics program, which exterminated millions of homosexuals, autistics and racial minorities, and she called for the United States to implement a similar plan for African Americans and others. Since the 1960s Planned Parenthood has subsisted largely on your tax dollars.

Rose continues:

What will it take for Congress to stop funding this abusive and corrupt billion-dollar organization? What will it take for the Department of Justice to launch a thorough investigation of Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse cover-up and medical misinformation? What will it take for us, the American public, to say, “Enough is enough!”

What indeed?

In her investigation, Rose uncovered evidence that Planned Parenthood actually aids and abets pimps and sex traffickers in much the way ACORN was exposed doing during O’Keefe’s investigation with Hannah Giles in 2009.

Think about it. Where is a pimp going to send his victims if they get pregnant on the “job”? An abortion clinic, and preferably one that won’t ask any questions. What if those victims are young girls, kidnapped or drafted in from the US, or trafficked in from other nations? Planned Parenthood has demonstrated that they do not report abuse. They are experts at turning a blind eye and asking for “as little information as possible.”

Darrell Issa, this is another rock you can turn over! How do these guys keep getting funding?

The new Republican Congress should immediately launch a wide-scale investigation into Planned Parenthood and move for complete defunding of this sink hole of corruption and government waste.

THE RABBLE UNDER THE RUBBLE: RAHM EMANUEL AND THE SESTAK SCANDAL

In Obamarama on 02/06/2010 at 07:30

Barack Obama and "Pretty Ballerina" Rahm Emanuel

From 1991 until 2000, the Clinton White House ran much like one would expect any well-oiled totalitarian seat of government to run, complete with dirty tricks, subterfuge, and its own propaganda ministry. Rahm Emanuel headed up the “dirty tricks bureau” and John “I Vant to Sock Your Blod” Podesta, now founder and head of Media Matters, ran the propaganda ministry.

Sweet little operation.

Rahm was the guy who instituted the “no notes” policy for White House lawyers during the Clinton impeachment proceedings, the idea being that if White House lawyers didn’t take notes there would be no records to subpoena. This, a lesson learned from the mistakes of Nixon Watergate counsel John Dean. Dean took great notes and drew a four-year sentence, even after he ratted out the others.

In Emanuel and Posdesta we have possibly two of the greatest unindicted criminals in the history of American politics. These guys were “good … very good,” to quote Humphrey Bogart.

Well, Podesta still heads up propaganda for the Democratic Party, albeit in the private sector nowadays. Much of the dirt you read about Sarah Palin, James O’Keefe, Michele Bachmann and scores of other conservatives is hatched by him and his organization. It’s effective and many Republicans accept much of it as fact after it percolates into the mainstream media.

But Emanuel has kept his hand in government, most recently as Obama White House chief of staff, and, when one day all of the rubble is cleared away, in the Joe Sestak “Jobsgate” scandal, Rahm will be the rabble at the bottom of it.

The question is not whether Obama offered Congressman Sestak a job – he did. It isn’t even whether the White House and Joe are being truthful about what job was offered – they aren’t. The real question is whether or not the misfire Republicans on Capitol Hill can prove it.

In this entire debacle one idea has been put forth that makes sense. It is not a special prosecutor appointed by the Obama Justice Department or even a Washington-based FBI investigation. The best idea put forth – I believe it was on O’Reilly last week by Dick Morris – is that Republican Pennsylvania Attorney General, Tom Corbett, impanel a state grand jury into the bribe offered a sitting U.S. Representative in his state.

If he will do this, he will effectively circumvent any dog and pony show that Marc Rich Pardon architect Eric Holder conducts, and get to the most corrupt White House chief of staff in U.S. history.
