Sterling has been banned for life from any NBA activity

By: Diane Sori & Craig Andresen...Right Side Patriots

BREAKING NEWS...Donald Sterling has been banned for life from any and all NBA league activity, fined $2.5 million for racist statements made, and will be forced to sell 'The Clippers' all because of taped comments he made in a PRIVATE phone conversation with his then bought and paid for bimbo. This came after threats by ubber race-baiter Al Sharpton threatened to protest at the NBA headquarters.

While Sterling's statements were disgusting and indeed racist saying them is NO crime as he is protected by the First Amendment as NO violence was threatened in his comments. What we want to know is how come the media doesn't remember and report on a similar situation in reverse to compare and contrast the incidents. Remember the broohaha back in 1987 with the Larry Bird/Isiah Thomas reverse racist statements. Oh wait...it's NOT remembered because it was only tokenly reported on.

It seems when it's white on black comments (or crime) all hell breaks lose but when its black on white comments (or crime) it's either overlooked or excused. This is why racism continues to exist in America and it's NOT because of racial hated per se but is because the media selectively promotes that hate to cater to the very ones who love to stir the pot of America's once healing racial wounds.

1) It doesn't matter whether you're yelling at someone who never knew you existed five minutes ago, lying about a conservative because you don't agree with him or even throwing a brick through a strore window, you are always the poor, oppressed victim.

2) By default, liberals can't be racist, sexist, or homophobic by virtue of being liberal. In other words, if a socialist like Hitler were around today, not only would he deny he is anti-Semitic, he'd be calling OTHER PEOPLE anti-Semitic.

3) The only bad, wrong and immoral thing you can do is being judgmental enough to label an activity bad, wrong, or immoral. That makes you sound like Rick Santorum and even if you turn out to be right about a lot of things over the long term, is it worth it if you sound like Rick Santorum?

4) Women, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, gays, Jews, Asians -- pretty much everyone but straight white males -- are weak, hapless, sad victims who are barely capable of tying their own shoes without a liberal writing a government policy that does it for them.

5) There is no such thing as the failure of a liberal policy; there are only well meaning left-wingers doing wonderful things. If they don't turn out as expected, there must be evil, awful conservative Republicans causing it somehow -- probably George W. Bush or alternately, if he's busy planning new wars, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin.

6) Liberalism is a jealous god and it will not tolerate anything, especially Christianity, being put before it. If Jesus wants to be a significant part of your life, He better call for gay marriage and a carbon tax first.

7) It's better to bankrupt a city like Detroit, cause the deaths of millions in Africa by banning DDT, or destroy the American health care system with Obamacare than to be called "mean" for choosing policies based on whether they work or not.

8) Not only should you go ahead and covet your neighbor's possessions, you should encourage other people to do it, too. Then, you should call for the government to take their possessions and redistribute them. After they get done, there may not be much of anything left, but then you'll all be equally poor and miserable and there's a lot to be said for that.

9) Disagreeing with a black Democrat? Racist. Opposing Affirmative Action? Racist. Think we pay out too much in welfare and food stamps? Racist. Don't like the IRS? Racist. Republican? Racist. Wait, what are we talking about? Racist!

10) Money is no object -- taxpayer money, of course, not your own. Your money, you want to keep. But, when other people's money is on the line, it's worth spending any amount, no matter how large, to achieve any good, no matter how small.
Of all the cynical frauds of the Obama administration, few are so despicable as sacrificing the education of poor and minority children to the interests of the teachers' unions.

Attorney General Eric Holder's attempt to suppress the spread of charter schools in Louisiana was just one of the signs of that cynicism. His nationwide threats of legal action against schools that discipline more black students than he thinks they should are at least as damaging.

Charter schools are hated by teachers' unions and by much of the educational establishment in general. They seem to be especially hated when they succeed in educating minority children whom the educational establishment says cannot be educated.

Apparently it can be done when you don't have to hire unionized teachers with iron-clad tenure, and when you don't have to follow the dogmas in vogue in the educational establishment.

Last year, there was an attempt to shut down the American Indian Model Schools in Oakland, California -- schools that had been ranked among the top schools in the nation, schools with the top test scores in their district and the fourth highest scores in the entire state of California.

The reason given was that the former -- repeat, FORMER -- head of these schools was accused of financial irregularities. Since there are courts of law to determine the guilt or innocence of individuals, why should school children be punished by having their schools shut down, immediately and permanently, before any court even held a trial?

Fortunately, a court order prevented this planned vindictive closing of this highly successful charter school with minority students. But the attempt shows the animus and the cynical disregard of the education of children who have few other places to get a comparable education.

Attorney General Holder's threats of legal action against schools where minority students are disciplined more often than he wants are a much more sweeping and damaging blow to the education of poor and minority students across the country.

Among the biggest obstacles to educating children in many ghetto schools are disruptive students whose antics, threats and violence can make education virtually impossible. If only 10 percent of the students are this way, that sacrifices the education of the other 90 percent.

The idea that Eric Holder, or anybody else, can sit in Washington and determine how many disciplinary actions against individual students are warranted or unwarranted in schools across the length and breadth of this country would be laughable if it were not so tragic.

Relying on racial statistics tells you nothing, unless you believe that black male students cannot possibly be more disruptive than Asian female students, or that students in crime-ridden neighborhoods cannot possibly require disciplinary actions more often than children in the most staid, middle-class neighborhoods.

Attorney General Holder is not fool enough to believe either of those things. Why then is he pursuing this numbers game?

The most obvious answer is politics. Anything that promotes a sense of grievance from charges of racial discrimination offers hope of energizing the black vote to turn out to vote for Democrats, which is especially needed when support from other voters is weakening in the wake of Obama administration scandals and fiascoes.

Eric Holder's other big racial crusade, against requiring identification for voting, is the same political game. And it is carried out with the same cynical promotion of fears, with orchestrated hysteria from other Democrats -- as if having to show identification to vote is like a revival of the Ku Klux Klan.

Blacks, whites and everybody else can be asked for identification these days, whether cashing a check or using a credit card at a local store or going to an airport -- or even getting into some political meetings called to protest voter ID laws.

But to sacrifice the education of children, especially children for whom education may be their only ticket out of poverty, is truly a new low. As someone once said to Senator Joe McCarthy, "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

Robert Spencer in PJ Lifestyle: 5 Truths the 9/11 Museum Should Tell About 9/11

/ Jihad Watch
911MemorialIn PJ Lifestyle this week I recall five basic truths that everyone, especially the directors of the 9/11 Museum, should know about 9/11. Most people, however, probably don’t know these things — and for that we have the mainstream media to thank.
A controversy erupted last week at the National September 11 Memorial Museum over exactly how the museum should depict what happened on that fateful day. So it’s time to give them a few unsolicited suggestions.
The New York Times reported that Muslim leaders in New York are angry about a film that is slated to be shown at the museum titled The Rise of Al Qaeda because it “refers to the terrorists as Islamists who viewed their mission as a jihad.” Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, wrote to the museum’s director: “The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum.”
Wait – aren’t the “local Muslim believers,” as well as any given “foreign Muslim visitor,” supposed to be part of the vast majority of Muslims worldwide who abhor and reject al Qaeda? So why would a film about al Qaeda offend them? Because, Elazabawy explains, “unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between Al Qaeda and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site.”
Akbar Ahmed, a professor at American University and a renowned and respected moderate Muslim, complained that people who see the film are “simply going to say Islamist means Muslims, jihadist means Muslims.” While he acknowledged that “the terrorists need to be condemned and remembered for what they did,” he warned that “when you associate their religion with what they did, then you are automatically including, by association, one and a half billion people who had nothing to do with these actions and who ultimately the U.S. would not want to unnecessarily alienate.”
But this is a sleight-of-hand: it is not the 9/11 Museum that is associating their religion with what they did. It was the 9/11 hijackers themselves who associated their religion with what they did. Elazabawy and Ahmed want the museum to ignore and whitewash that fact, and it will almost certainly comply: it has already begun to do so by removing mention of “Islamic terrorism” from its website.
In a just world, however, it would highlight these five truths:
5. The 9/11 hijackers were Islamic jihadists acting in accord with Islamic imperatives.

Kerry: “Resign!” 
Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

It is good to see the blistering backlash to Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry’s vicious antisemitic libel. Both sides of aisle are calling for this antisemite’s resignation.

The Obama regime thinks if the enemedia advances their pro-jihad agenda that what  we the little people, the American people,  think is irrelevant. How very wrong they are. And how very clearly they will see that in the weeks and months ahead.  Delusional royalty.

O’s chickens are coming home to roost, if I may crib form his poisonous mentor, Jeremiah Wright.
Hill Republicans call on Kerry to apologize, resign for reported Israel ‘apartheid’ remarks, Published April 28, 2014, FoxNews.com
A firestorm broke out among congressional Republicans Monday over Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly saying Israel could become an “apartheid state,” with the No. 2 House leader saying he should apologize and a senator calling on him to resign.

“Reports that Secretary Kerry has suggested Israel is becoming an apartheid state are extremely disappointing,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, said in a statement. “The use of the word apartheid has routinely been dismissed as both offensive and inaccurate, and Secretary Kerry’s use of it makes peace even harder to achieve.”

The Virginia congressman also urged Kerry to “apologize to the Israeli government and people.”

In a statement Monday night, Kerry defended himself, saying, “I will not allow my commitment to Israel to be questioned by anyone, particularly for partisan, political purposes, so I want to be crystal clear about what I believe and what I don’t believe.
“First, Israel is a vibrant democracy and I do not believe, nor have I ever stated, publicly or privately, that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one.  Anyone who knows anything about me knows that without a shred of doubt.
“Second, I have been around long enough to also know the power of words to create a misimpression, even when unintentional, and if I could rewind the tape, I would have chosen a different word to describe my firm belief that the only way in the long term to have a Jewish state and two nations and two peoples living side by side in peace and security is through a two state solution.”

Late Monday Sen. Barbara Boxer added a bipartisan note to the Kerry criticism, tweeting, “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and any linkage between Israel and apartheid is nonsensical and ridiculous.”

At the same time, Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, issued a statement saying, “I am disappointed with Secretary Kerry’s reported remarks…(he) knows as well as anyone that negotiating lasting peace in this region of the world is difficult but it’s not productive to express his frustration in this way.”

The backlash follows a Daily Beast report claiming Kerry made the statement during a closed-door meeting Friday with “influential world leaders.” He reportedly warned that if Israel doesn’t make peace, the country could become “an apartheid state.”

Shortly after Cantor’s call for an apology, Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz called for Kerry’s resignation on the Senate floor.

“Mr. President, it is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation,” Cruz said. “And the president should accept it.”

Kerry reportedly made the comparison after peace talks hit a wall last week, as Fatah announced a unity agreement with Hamas. Israel, which like the U.S. considers Hamas a terror group, suspended peace talks after that announcement — although Kerry continued to voice hope that both sides could return to the negotiating table.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, also slammed Kerry over the reported remarks, made ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“These comments are outrageous and disappointing,” he said in a statement. “Incendiary name calling does not change the fundamental fact that Israel does not currently have a viable partner for peace. I urge Secretary Kerry and the administration to focus on pressing challenges in the Middle East such as ending the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria and preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon instead of pressuring Israel to make additional concessions to partners who have now chosen to align themselves with a terrorist group.”

The State Department is not denying that Kerry made the remarks. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki, asked about them at Monday’s briefing, said she would not confirm comments made during a private meeting.

While not confirming whether Kerry warned that Israel could become an apartheid state, she said: “The secretary does not believe and did not state publicly or privately that Israel is an apartheid state, and there’s an important difference there.”

“Israel is obviously a vibrant democracy with equal rights for all of its citizens,” she said, reiterating that Kerry believes a “two-state solution is the only way to have two nations and two people living side-by-side in peace and security.”

A few questions of 'so when'... 
By: Diane Sori 
So many questions that need answers...so many answers that will probably NEVER be gotten...

So when is Sean Hannity (and now Mike Huckabee as well) going to apologize to Cliven Bundy for the nasty things he said about the very man standing strong against a federal government run amok. Calling him a racist and such Hannity...of all people...listened to the New York Times edited version of Bundy's 'supposed' racist remarks instead of listening to the entire unedited interview. And with this liberal rag of a newspaper doing what Hannity should have known they'd do...as in editing, splicing, and pasting together Bundy's words to fit their leftist agenda...the saddest thing of all is that Sean Hannity fell for it. Shame on him but now he needs to make amends and do so by putting on his big boy pants, man-up by eating some crow, and apologize 'ON-AIR' to Cliven Bundy for listening to and accepting as facts the words of the likes of The New York Times...case closed.

So when are those here in our country who think there's a Republican 'War on Women' going to wake up and realize that it's the left...the Democrats as in Obama and crew...who NOT only are the ones perpetrating the LIE about a 'War on Women' here at home but who actually condone the inequality women face in many parts of the world. Condone it for NO objection was raised by our American delegation to the U(seless) N(ations)...on Obama's orders perhaps...when Iran was unanimously elected to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), a commission dealing on a global level with gender equality and the advancement of women. So now Iran again sits on this all-important commission with nary an objection by any delegation even knowing their dismal record on women's issues...doing NOTHING even when given the opportunity to speak-up against this appointment.

Iran, the country where the hijab is mandatory dress for all woman venturing out into the streets and public places...Iran, the country where divorce is a husband’s right but where a woman must prove her husband has either abandoned her, is mentally ill, abusive, or a drug addict, for her to get a divorce...Iran, the country where child custody, inheritance, and ownership laws side overwhelmingly with the man...Iran, the country where women are NOT allowed to be judges or hold high-ranking positions in the government...Iran, the country where honor killings are the acceptable norm and adultery is a crime that holds the woman accountable for the very evidence that will be used against her, and where her testimony is worth half that of a man’s...that very country will continue to sit on a commission dealing with women's rights and equality. But hey...this goes hand-in-hand with Obama's pandering and acquiescing to his islamic brethren by his allowing Iran to pull the wool over the world's eyes concerning the issue of their becoming an anything but peaceful nuclear power.

So when are the leaders of the G7 nations...the leaders of the now anything but 'free world'...going to accept the fact that their mere condemnation of Putin's actions in and around Ukraine...actions that could escalate into a larger conflict that could devour the entire region...and their slapping of even more useless albeit targeted sanctions on Russia all while Russia counters them by raising interest rates for a second consecutive month in an effort to limit the economic damage caused by these very sanctions...will amount to absolutely NOTHING against a man hell-bent on rebuilding the Russian Empire.

When will they realize that imposing sanctions of any sort instead of sending a strong united military show of force to the area...and the token 600 troops Obama is sending to the area is NO show of force...will NOT get the 'Russian Bear' to pull back his troops. When will these leaders realize that Vladimir Putin is the winner of this game as he orders new military drills near the border with eastern Ukraine and as Russian aircraft enter Ukrainian airspace, doing so as he sits back and laughs over how far down the path to humiliation and defeat his American counterpart, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, has led our beloved country...how far down this path he, Vladimir Putin, has manipulated and played the president of the world's last remaining superpower.

So when will Barack HUSSEIN Obama stop beholding our country to his muslim brethren in regards to keeping us dependent on Arab oil. When will he approve the building of the Keystone XL Pipeline that would put thousands of Americans back to work and help them get off the government welfare rolls and us away from OPEC oil price manipulation. When...probably NEVER...NOT even after the November mid-term elections for to do so would take away people's allegiance to the party that feeds them and would raise the ire of those this miserable excuse of a president caters, panders, and bows down to.

So when will this administration finally get it that the once-called 'Roadmap to Peace'...the now 'anything but peace talks' between the Israelis and the Palestinians...is over and that it NEVER had a chance to succeed for trading land for peace will NOT now or ever work when those who want the land want ALL of the land. And when the talks involve a two-faced desert rat like Mahmoud Abbas, a man who would rather make deals to form a 'unity government' with Hamas terrorists who "will not give any cover for any negotiations with the enemy" than make peace with Israel, you just know the time has come to pack your bags and go home. That is go home and let Israel do what Israel needs to do to ensure its survival now and forever.

So when will Hillary 'What Does It Matter' Clinton finally accept the fact that we patriots will NOT ever allow her to forget her role in the murders of four Americans at Benghazi. And she knows we know what she is so trying to hide and that it will haunt her every move if she dares choose to run for president in 2016. So when will we finally get to the bottom of why the feds really want Clive Bundy and his cows off 'public' lands...and when...and I want a date for this one...when can we finally get rid of the monstrosity know as ObamaCare.

So again, so many questions that need answers...so many answers that will only be gotten when hell freezes over or when some brave soul decides to put America first and sings like the proverbial canary...but sadly I will NOT hold my breath for that one.
