Fox’s Glenn Beck says he believes Obama is racist

NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News Channel commentator Glenn Beck said he believes President Barack Obama is a racist. Beck made the statement during a guest appearance Tuesday on the “Fox & Friends�? morning show. He said Obama has exposed himself as a person with “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.�?

His remarks came during a discussion of Obama’s reaction to the arrest of Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. Gates is black and was arrested for disorderly conduct by a white policeman over a misunderstanding about a break-in at Gates’ home.

An Obama spokesman, William Burton, said the White House had no comment on Beck.

Beck’s statement was challenged on the air by Fox host Brian Kilmeade, who noted that most of the people who work for the nation’s first black president are white.

“I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people,�? Beck said. “He has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.�?

Fox’s Glenn Beck says he believes Obama is racist

Personally, I believe that Glenn Beck is 100%, dead center, square on the mark. But here’s the real truth about being *on the mark* in the MSM, even with the mighty FOX News Network, sometimes, no matter how right you are, your words are going to come back to haunt you, and possibly cost you a job. Ask E.D. Hill.

E.D. Hill and her show, “America’s Pulse�? has been removed from her time slot at Fox, because of something she said in her news presentation . On June 6th last, on her former program, “America’s Pulse,�? E.D. Hill teased in a segment about body-language about Obama’s fist bump with his wife Michelle.

Obama supporters and the leftist blogs on the web were in a rage and an uproar about the comments, and George Soros’ “Media Matters�? began a campaign encouraging people to contact Fox and complaint about what is in their view an unforgivable slight of Obama and Michelle.

Fox Removes E.D. Hill and Her Show

E.D. Hill makes a crack about the fist bump, an exhibition of ghetto solidarity if ever there was one, and *poof*, she’s history.

And just today, Michelle Malkin was on Glenn Beck’s program. I know she wasn’t directly involved but she was present when FOX made a reference to Michelle Obama being the BABY MAMA!

NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News Channel referred to Michelle Obama as “Obama’s baby mama�? in a graphic on Wednesday, the latest in a trio of references to the Democratic presidential campaign that have given fuel to network critics.

The graphic “Outraged liberals: Stop picking on Obama’s baby mama�? was flashed during an interview with conservative columnist Michelle Malkin about whether Barack Obama’s wife has been the target of unfair criticism.

My story on that incident is HERE but it appears that MyWay or AP has removed the story from their link.

Bill Shine, senior vice president of programming at Fox, said in a statement that a producer “exercised poor judgment�? during the segment. The producer was not fired; no other disciplinary action was announced. Hill’s “terrorist fist jab�? comment came in a tease to a segment on the candidates’ body language, and it wasn’t repeated during the subsequent interview. She told Fox it was taken from something she had read online.

FOXNews Shepard Smith: We don’t f*cking torture

Can someone please explain to me WHY this namby-pamby closet liberal, Shepard Smith, is still on FOX News after his incredibly childish outburst while on air with Trace Gallagher and Judge Andrew Napolitano?

A while back E.D. Hill was taken OFF the air because she made reference to Obama’s fist bump with his wife Michelle. Fox Removes E.D. Hill and Her Show

Just in case anyone missed MY take on torture and it’s use, let me make it crystal clear for you:

If it will save so much as 1 American life, I will cut ALL of their fingers off, one joint at a time… Hot pokers… Electrical… Whatever it takes…

50% of the American people are a bunch of bleeding heart wussies, and those that aren’t outright wussies are too afraid to speak out, I am NOT one OF those Americans!

Whatever it takes, done TO whoever it takes. America 1st!!

Republicans Claim Top Lawmakers Were in the Loop on Interrogations

Republicans Claim Top Lawmakers Were in the Loop on Interrogations

Republicans, hoping to turn the tables on Democrats who are open to prosecuting Bush-era lawyers for justifying “enhanced” interrogation techniques, are seeking to reveal the names of those lawmakers who were briefed on the tactics as much as seven years ago.

FOX News has learned there were more than 30 meetings and briefings with members of Congress on the subject since 2002.

The first such briefing dealt with the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, the Al Qaeda operations chief who ran the training camps in Afghanistan where the Sept. 11 hijackers were trained. Sources said California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, now the speaker of the House, attended the meeting with then-Rep. Porter Goss, R-Fla. (who later became CIA director), and she did not raise any objections.

The briefings were given to the chairmen and ranking members of the intelligence committees in the House and Senate until 2006. That could cover Sen. John Rockefeller, W.Va., and Rep. Jane Harman, Calif., both Democrats, as well as Sen. Pat Roberts, Kan., Sen. Lindsey Graham, S.C., Sen. Richard Shelby, Ala., and Rep. Pete Hoekstra, Mich., all Republicans.

I just love it when a plan of action backfires and blows up in the faces of the Democrats. This enhanced interrogation thing, ie: torture, is doing exactly that. House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, San Fran Nan, as she is so affectionately called, claims she was NOT in the loop. Pelosi says she wasn’t told that any enhanced interrogation tactics were being used, and as I heard from an earlier source, she, Pelosi, didn’t understand the implications of the briefings that she was privvy to.

Pelosi said Thursday that at the briefing she attended, she was not told that waterboarding “or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods” were being used.

Nancy Pelosi is a LIAR! Nancy Pelosi is a Democratic Party HACK and a total hypocrite. The hypocrisy of the Democrats is about to come back to bite them once again! Pelosi, and others in attendance of these security briefings, will now engage in pure semantics in an attempt to cover their own level of involvement, their own level of implied approval to use any tactics necessary to protect this nation and save American lives.

In every day vernacular, this is called duck and cover, in other words, Pelosi and any others in this report, will say and/or do anything they feel necessary to cover their own asses now that Obama has opened the can of worms regarding so-called instances of enemies of this nation being subjected to what the bleeding hearts consider to be torture.

I don’t know if any of you watch Shepard Smith on FOX News, his show comes on at 2:00PM CDT, anyway, yesterday, 04-22, Smith went OFF, I am not exaggerating, he went livid regarding the use of torture, adamantly stating, “The U.S. DOES NOT TORTURE!, MY nation will do NO SUCH THING!!” as he ranted and raved like a lunatic against such practices.

Shepard Smith is a bleeding heart NINNY and his Liberal-like screed got him an email from me informing him that I consider him to be a bleeding heart IDIOT and letting him know, in no uncertain terms, that his views had just lost him and his program at least 1 American viewing household.

These are strange times. Our enemies are now perceived by our president as not being all that bad, just a bit misunderstood, simply needing us to reach out and tenderly begged to be our friends. Those that defend this nation, those that place their lives on the line, and in many cases, make the ultimate sacrifice and GIVE their lives to keep America safe are now somehow looked at as being the *bad guys*, Veterans a Focus of FBI Extremist Probe, the Intel services that are tasked with gaining all information available regarding the actions and possible actions of our enemies are now considered to be heinous purveyors of torture!

Torture conjures up visions of the most, brutal, sadistic and hideous violations of human dignity imaginable. So be it. If these acts of can protect America, the American people, if so much as ONE American life can be saved by the protectors of this nation engaging in what some consider to be torture, I, not being one of the bleeding heart libbers that are rapidly bringing about the demise of this great nation, I have absolutely NO qualms about it being used on those who have SWORN to kill us ALL!

We are in a fight for our very lives and existence! What part of that do the bleeding heart libbers miss?
