Jonah Goldberg: Protecting the Protesters vs. Trashing the Tea Party!

newsbusters.org ^ | 12/22/2014 | Rich Noyes 

Nearly four years ago, the media establishment swiftly and baselessly linked the Tea Party to the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. But after this weekend’s murder of two New York City police officers, by a gunman who used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, there was no rush at ABC, CBS or NBC to condemn anti-police protesters who have employed the chant: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now.”
National Review’s Jonah Goldberg highlighted the outrageous double standard on Sunday’s MediaBuzz on the Fox News Channel:

What if ALL the Cops in NYC and Ferguson, MO called in sick for a week?

December 23, 2014 | Din Maker 

Now policemen are being associated with the KKK, protested against and being assassinated, in their squad car, just for going to work.

 I wonder what would happen if EVERY SINGLE cop in NYC and Ferguson, MO decided upon one certain week to call in sick or take a personal day everyday for that week. I wonder how they citizens of those two fair cities would like have absolutely no police protection for an entire week, or for a few days until the National Guard was activated and called in?

Let me just enjoy thinking about the prospects of that happening for a few minutes.

Obama's Giveaway Deal With Cuba May Hurt His Party in 2016

Townhall.com ^ | December 23, 2014 | Donald Lambro 

WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama continues to embrace low-tier, go-it-alone executive actions to pad out the last two years of his mistake-filled, agenda-less presidency in a hopeless hunt for a legacy.
His arrogant decision this week to re-establish diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba is the latest example of a president desperately searching for something to do without having to deal with Congress.
You can comb through all of the polling data for the topmost concerns of the American people, and renewing U.S. relations with Cuba's evil Castro dictatorship is not among them.
But with his job-approval polls in the basement, and his beaten party toppled from power on Capitol Hill, Obama is frantically looking for anything to turn his failed presidency around. So he went on nationwide television Wednesday to announce his latest diplomatic gambit, to remind us that he's still president.
National television? For a shameful giveaway deal with an aging tin-pot dictator in the Caribbean who got almost everything he demanded and conceded nothing in return?
Maybe someone in the White House suggested that this would be compared to Nixon's opening to China. It wasn't.
His actions drew fierce bipartisan criticism from Capitol Hill for making deep unilateral concessions without getting much in return. And it stoked the political fires in Florida, a pivotal electoral prize in the presidential elections, where Cubans account for a large share of the vote and remain strongly opposed to relaxing relations with the Castros and their revolutionary henchmen.
The administration won the freedom of Alan Gross, a former U.S. Agency for International Development contract worker who has been imprisoned for five years by the Cubans. But in return, Obama freed several convicted Cuban spies.
This will go down in Obama history as another naive attempt at diplomacy by a president who believes he can deal with dictators even if he gets little or nothing in return.
Remember that Obama came into office expecting to "reset" relations with Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin thugs, only to watch them seize the Crimea Peninsula and send troops into Eastern Ukraine, where they remain to this day.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida sees the same naivete at work in Obama's olive branch diplomacy with Cuba -- calling the president "the single worst negotiator we have had in the White House in my lifetime."
"Appeasing the Castro brothers will only cause other tyrants from Caracas to Tehran to Pyongyang to see they can take advantage of President Obama's naivete during his final two years in office," Rubio said.
Even some Democratic leaders were incensed by the president's actions.
In a blistering statement Wednesday, Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the outgoing chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Obama's actions "have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government. There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation.
"One spy was also convicted of conspiracy to murder for his role in the 1996 tragedy in which the Cuban military shot down two U.S. civilian planes, killing several American citizens," Menendez said.
To trade "Mr. Gross for three convicted criminals sets an extremely dangerous precedent. It invites dictatorial and rogue regimes to use Americans serving overseas as bargaining chips. I fear that today's actions will put at risk thousands of Americans that work overseas," he warned.
Obama may pay a bigger price for his actions when the Republicans take control of the Senate next month, and Rubio becomes the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee's Western Hemisphere subcommittee.
In a statement released by his office, Rubio said he will "make every effort to block this dangerous and desperate attempt" to make sweeping concessions to the Castro government without demanding an end to its repressive policies that have put untold political dissidents in prison.
But in his zeal to play the role of global negotiator, even at the expense of appeasing some of America's worst and most dangerous adversaries, Obama may have hurt his party's chances in the 2015-16 presidential election cycle.
Of the nearly 2 million U.S. citizens who claim Cuban ancestry, the vast majority of them live in South Florida, a strategic political prize that could decide the outcome of the next election -- as it did in 2000.
While the younger generation of Cuban-Americans are more open to relaxing travel restrictions toward Cuba, the older generations remain deeply hostile to granting any concessions to the Communist government until it adopts democratic political reforms.
Like Rubio, one of the GOP's latest presidential wannabes wasn't buying it for a moment.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who has just formed an exploratory committee for the 2016 presidential race, said on his Facebook page that the administration's decision to resume diplomatic ties with Cuba was "the latest foreign policy misstep by this president, and another dramatic overreach of his executive authority."
"It undermines America's credibility and undermines the quest for a free and democratic Cuba," said Bush, who is widely popular among Florida's Cuban population and the Hispanic community at large.
But on the left of the political divide, Hillary Clinton was buying into Obama's appeasement policy hook, line and sinker.
"I support President Obama's decision to change course on Cuba policy," she said. "Despite good intentions, our decades-long policy of isolation has only strengthened the Castro regime's grip on power."
Obama went for the whole enchilada, believing he can deal with Cuba by caving in to their demands. Republicans, and maybe more than a few Democrats, will remind him in a few weeks that Congress will have a say in this, too.

Allen West: 'Why Do We Believe Police Need Retraining or Reorganization and Reforming?'

cnsnews.com ^ | 12/23/2014 | Susan Jones 

Suggestions that police are biased and not doing their jobs properly -- made by some of the nation's top leaders -- create a dangerous climate for the men and women who serve and protect, says former U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).
"Why do we believe police need retraining or reorganization and reforming?" West asked.
"The most important thing to understand is leaders establish climate, an atmosphere," West told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren Monday night. "And when you have people, such as the president, such as the attorney general, Eric Holder, and (New York) Mayor Bill de Blasio, and look at some of the things that have been said and go back to the Gates incident" (where President Obama accused a white Cambridge, Mass. police officer of acting "stupidly").

To Obama, Cuban Missile Crisis isn't worth remembering!

lowell sun ^ | 12/22 | peter Lucas 

Barack Obama should have been around during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Had he been, he might have had second thoughts about propping up the dying Cuban Communist dictatorship of Fidel and Raul Castro. If Obama really wants change in Cuba, all he has to do is wait a while. Fidel is 88, Raul is 83.
Back then, in 1961 and 1962, the two hard-core communist revolutionaries wanted to attack the United States, and for a while, they were in possession of enough nuclear-tipped missiles supplied by the Soviet Union to do it

To progressive politicians the Blue Line is the enemy

Canada Free Press ^ | 12/23/14 | Judi McLeod 

Politicians, like de Blasio and Obama, doing the “dividing us” with the help of a complicit mainstream media painting the ongoing racial divide claiming cop lives as coming from only “a few bad actors” among the protesters
No one—least of all the 72 percent of the popular vote who voted him in—should be the least bit surprised that the first two police officers have been slain, “execution style” on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s watch.
Socialists/Marxists, fomenting for racial unrest in North American cities for decades, merely filled the gap in New York City as they have elsewhere with a mayor who could be counted upon to do their bidding at the right time.
Progressives completed their long march through public institutions, enabled by the reality that as their march was a covert one, there would be nobody to stop them. They started in academe which they now own, marched through churches before taking steady aim at the Blue Line, knowing full well that without the Blue Line there can only be anarchy.

Berkeley Man Dies After Pro-Michael Brown Protesters Delay Paramedics!

Pundit Press ^ | 12/23/14 | Aurelius 

A Berkeley man has died thanks to protesters who claim they are protesting against unnecessary deaths.
The man, who lived in a Kittredge Street apartment complex, collapsed several days ago while protests were going on in the streets around his home.
Paramedics attempted to rush to his aid, but were slowed and sometimes stopped by protesters. The protesters were demonstrating in favor of Michael Brown, an African American teen who was shot and killed after he assaulted and charged at a white police officer.
The protesters claimed they were in the streets to bring attention to unnecessary deaths caused by rash behavior.

“What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” the Black War on our police continues

Coach is Right ^ | 12/23/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins 

The Black War on our police has erupted again. Two New York City Police Officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot dead Saturday. They were murdered by a Black Muslim who joined the war which has continued since the 1970s.
Clearly New York Mayor Comrade Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barack Obama are to blame; but they are not the only ones with blood on their hands. They are what they are; loathsome enemies of America who have been given power by the “takers” and some “guilty” feeling makers.
The permanent, greedy, underclass created by the Democrats who voted to put Barack Obama in office are guilty. Each and every person who voted for Obama is guilty. The feckless worms that ran against Obama and did nothing to win are guilty and so are those who engineered their nominations. Gutless puke John McCain, who would not even allow his campaign to use Obama’s Islamist’s middle name is guilty. Mitt Romney who was more interested in being “bipartisan” than beating Satan is guilty.
The Republican Party in New York City is guilty for running away from the mayoral race, insuring the election of Comrade de Blasio.
The oh-so-pious “conservative” cowards are guilty for groveling at the feet of Sharpton and accepting his false premise that Eric Garner was killed by police with a “chokehold.” Their guilt is of the worst kind because it comes from a trembling, cowardly plea to Sharpton not to call them racists. They disgust honest people with...
