When I first saw comments on social media about an uber-racist working at the Dept. of Homeland Security, the claims were so outrageous I doubted their truth.

When I wrote about emerging details in Oprah-Gate, I said I was appalled at the prospect of Oprah Winfrey paying $38,000 for a purse made from an animal’s hide. Why?
Oprah’s politics run far left and she’s been recognized for advocating for animal rights. Seems like a double standard, especially when you consider what PETA thought of the wealthy celeb.
It was a lively conversation I had with a few intimates about the dustup in Zurich. I decided early on we weren’t getting the full story from the talk show queen who claimed a sales clerk had a racist moment.
A dear one disagreed—Europe is racist, just like America.
Official story line: Oprah went into a tony boutique in Zurich and asked to see a very expensive handbag. As in 35,000 Swiss francs. In American bucks, that would be $37,844.1793 according to my handy Yahoo currency converter.
Turnout in presidential elections—general—is higher than turnout in elections involving congressional and local races or midterms, and Democrats feel the impact more keenly than the GOP.
The upcoming 2014 midterms are no exception and that’s one reason President Barack Obama is indirectly hitting the stump at present, making speeches about jobs, the economy and his healthcare plan (more aptly, a health tax plan). The president tosses in anti-Republican dogma for good measure. The double edge there is that the president is covered by taxpayer dollars for these events.
The backstory running through Obama's speeches rests on racial rhetoric inspired by the likes of Al Sharpton.
The influential Cook Political Report provided an excellent analysis of the landscape for 2014 in the essay, The GOP’s built-in midterm turnout advantage. One point is especially important:
No one in her right mind expects MSNBC’s Chuck Todd to say good things about Republicans. However, Todd recently stooped to a new low—as low as what your kitty buries in the litter box or yard—with a comment he made about Republicans.
Video: In this 2008 forum, President Barack Obama bashed President George W. Bush and Republicans. Leftist policy, even with the huge gains Dems made in 2006, haven’t worked out well for Main Street. (YouTube video)
Splattered across the Drudge Report on Tuesday: “'You are so white, you are extremely white'...Religious attack...”
As Maher and other celebs, including some high profile black Democrats, imagine racism on every corner, teens are dying in the streets, but racism has nothing to do with it.
A shooting occurred in Nashville on Saturday night in the same neighborhood where 17 year old Antwand Covington was killed the previous Saturday as he arrived at a Sweet 16 party.
NBC chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman talked about the use of abortion to eliminate a child that might have a medical disorder. Snyderman defended her position on NBC Today—“Well, I’m pro-science, so I believe that this is a great way to prevent diseases.”
Snyderman’s position isn’t new.
Al Jazeera commands a global audience frequently subjected to verbal assaults on America. Most columns are written by Leftist ideologues. A recent column about the death of Trayvon Martin is a perfect example of a Leftist on steroids, a man in too great a hurry to bother with facts.
