After LeBron James called NFL owners ‘old white men’ with a ‘slave mentality,’ he then quoted a rapper’s lyrics to his 43 million Instagram followers, using the term “Jewish money.” For those who might not understand why this was so offensive, Alex Kirshner writes in SBNation: ….The association with Jews and money goes back to at least the Middle Ages and has had dire consequences all over the world. It played a key role in Nazi propaganda leading up to the Holocaust, when Hitler sought to portray Jews as leaches sucking up the German state’s resources as they infringed on the country’s racial purity. Visit any Holocaust museum, and you’ll see 1920s and ‘30s propaganda like this poster, which depicted...

Compulsion to confess…from a prominent Swamp Creature. Via BizPac Review. ….Former Republican House majority leader Eric Cantor revealed that though the GOP banged the drum of repealing Obamacare for years, he “never believed” it was going to happen. “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” the former Virginia congressman told the Washingtonian, shaking his head. “I never believed it.” Cantor was at the forefront of the charge to repeal former President Obama’s signature policy, making the hot button issue a central part of the GOP rhetoric. Supporters were promised that if and when Republicans ruled the Senate...

The compulsion to confess… Via Breitbart. Callum Borchers, author at the Washington Post blog The Fix, admits that the press is declaring victory for Hillary Clinton — to discredit claims that the election is rigged. From the Washington Post: Since the final presidential debate last week, many news outlets have been delivering an unvarnished message to Donald Trump supporters: Your candidate is virtually certain to lose the election Nov. 8. “Clinton probably finished off Trump last night,” FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver wrote the day after the debate. “Hillary Clinton is almost certain to be president,” Guardian columnist and former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson added. A day later, the Times’s Upshot blog increased Clinton’s chances of winning to...

This tells you everything you need to know. Even more special? This Jeb aide who describes the citizen voter as an asylum inmate warns at the end that it’s Trump who poses a “danger to the republic.” Priceless. Via Daily Caller. A former aide on Jeb Bush’s failed presidential bid referred to Republican voters as “inmates” who have taken control of the “asylum,” in an interview released Monday. Tim Miller is Bush’s former communications director and is currently an adviser to the anti-Trump group Our Principles PAC. He told Politico‘s Glenn Thrush that the Bush campaign had identified two main reasons why it wasn’t receiving support in the primary. “When we looked at our numbers, about three-quarters of the voters...

Uh oh. This dude’s slip is showing… Via NewsBusters: An appearance…on Alan Colmes’ radio show went from bad to barely better for a spokesman with the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Hassan Shibly, executive director of the Florida CAIR branch at Tampa, made an earnest attempt to separate Islamic fanatics responsible for last week’s carnage in Paris from genuine Muslims, despite a revealing gaffe right out of the gate. Shibly was following the predictable left-wing script in calling for Americans to remain “united” in fighting jihadists when he was forced to correct himself– COLMES (after introducing Shibly as representing the “Center for” American-Islamic Relations): It saddens me, the number of incidents we’ve seen over the last week since the Paris attacks,...

Compulsion to confess? Paging Dr. Freud… And doesn’t POTUS look really bored? Too bad he couldn’t launch into his fav topic, trashing his real enemy…Republicans. Via Conservative Post: ….During his speech, Obama uttered the line, “with the additional steps I ordered last month, we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces.” The White House.gov transcript left in the original quote, but placed the word ‘Iraqi’ in brackets after the word ISIL, correcting Obama’s mistake….

Democrat water-carrying liberal Bob Schieffer is (finally!) leaving the helm at CBS’s Face The Nation, after almost a quarter-century. Talking to Howard Kurtz, Schieffer admits that maybe reporters were not “skeptical” enough of Barack Obama during his campaign. But then he backtracks, stating that, well, it’s the job of the opponents to “make the campaign.” And the role of journalists is to “watch the campaign and report on what the two sides are doing.” Via Politico: ….Asked whether the media gave Obama an “incredibly easy ride” when he broke onto the scene, the veteran newsman acknowledged that it’s the job of reporters to be skeptical of political figures. “I don’t know. Maybe we were not skeptical enough. It was a...

Is POTUS trying to reassure Israel? Or, is this just another “compulsion to confess” ? Via Yahoo: Obama says a weakened Israel would be ‘failure’ of his presidency US President Barack Obama has said that a weakened Israel would be a “fundamental failure of my presidency,” affirming solidarity with the long-time ally despite recent differences over the Iran nuclear deal. Obama said while Israel has reason to be concerned about foe Iran, he defended the framework agreement on Iran’s nuclear program that negotiators drew up last week. Obama made the comments to The New York Times in a 45-minute video interview on Saturday that was posted on Sunday. “I would consider it a failure on my part, a fundamental failure...

Two weeks ago, as reported in CNS: Michelle Obama: ‘My Husband Believes Strongly’ Getting Mental Health Treatment Is ‘Sign of Strength’ – MObama told an audience …that her husband, President Barack Obama “believes strongly” that getting support and treatment for a mental health issue “isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength.” “It’s time to tell everyone who’s dealing with a mental health issue that they’re not alone, and that getting support and treatment isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength,” said Mrs. Obama. “That’s something that my husband believes strongly as president, because in this country when you’re fighting an illness whether that’s mental or physical you should be able to get the help...

This photograph is an official White House photo, and I think you would agree it’s begging for a proper caption 🙂 I’m guessing this is how Obama would prefer everyone to greet him. But the photographer feels compelled to explain that they’re not bowing, they’re laughing, at obviously the funniest president in the history of the country. It is somewhat telling, however, that the photog does feel the need to explain things, because gosh, for some reason people might think staff is bowing to the jerk. Talk about the compulsion to confess… (Pic HT to Weasel Zippers) “This is one of those photographs that needs some explanation. The President had been meeting with Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, left, and Senior...

Talk about the Compulsion to Confess! Hillary as a giant monster stepping on all the Little People who happen to be at the mercy of her heel? Yeah, sounds about right. Or then again, we could ask Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods about being stepped on and left for dead by Hillary. Or we could check back with Planet Earth to see how it fared under her pantsuits, muumuus and heels while at the State Department. Not very well, last time I checked. I do have to hand it to Time, they found the one part of Hillary that doesn’t look like my Uncle Jack. Unless he wore pumps. Which he doesn’t. Yes, Regular Hillary and Giant Hillary have so...

Courtesy of the Compulsion to Confess, the festering wound of liberalism laid bare. I don’t know why I’m stunned by something like this when everything the liberals to ruin people’s lives. In fact, it’s apparently the most natural thing for them to do. Now Harry Reid simply admits it. Of course, Democrats aren’t used to actually having to answer real questions. If they were, we’d hear a lot more revealing the festering wound that is liberalism. Via Free Beacon. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) asked why Senate Democrats would want to fund the National Institutes of Health to “help one child who has cancer” Wednesday when asked that question by CNN reporter Dana Bash. DANA BASH: You all...

Arrangements. They’re frauds, in every way. CBS: Michelle Obama mistakenly calls herself a “busy single mother” Hey CBS, I’d be careful with that word “mistakenly” if I were you. And in the meantime… Obama Calls Californian Kamala Harris ‘Best Looking’ Attorney General
