Trump Issues Weak Statement After Obama Reminds Russia That He’s Still President

I thought that hacking is a crime. What if Trump’s emails were hacked by a foreign government and released to the public? That to me is what makes the hacking pertinent to being political because it was one-sided.

Trump Issues Weak Statement After Obama Reminds Russia That He’s Still PresidentTrump’s response suggests that holding Russia accountable for its unprecedented election meddling isn’t that high on his list of priorities.

POLITICUSUSA

President-Elect Donald Trump issued an official statement on Thursday after the Obama administration announced harsh retaliatory measures against Russia for its hacking of the 2016 election.

Despite both parties joining hands to strongly condemn Russia’s interference and support President Obama’s tough actions, Trump’s response was short and weak – and it didn’t even explicitly mention the Russian cyberattack.

The full statement:

It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.

It’s clear that Trump cares very little about Russia’s attack on the U.S. – probably because it helped put him in the White…

Remembering Rev. Clementa Pickney And 8 Others– The Trial of Their Murderer Has Began

Dear Friends,

rev_pinckney_homepageTrial started today for the man who murdered 9 Black people in the Emanuel AME Church on June 17, 2015.  I’m currently working in getting details about today’s hearings so we can  follow the trial.

President Barack Obama delivered the eulogy for the Reverend Clementa Pickney who was among the dead.  Rev. Pickney was also a State Senator.  He was 41-years old.

Below is the video of the full eulogy.  Listening to it gives us an answer as to why Dylann Roof, an avowed White supremacist, selected that church to carry out the murders.

RAW STORY

Well played, Mr. President. Well played.

Good evening everybody. It is an honor to be here at my last — and perhaps the last — White House Correspondents’ Dinner. You all look great. The end of the Republic has never looked better.

I do apologize. I know I was a little late tonight. I was running on CPT, which stands for “jokes that white people should not make.”

Anyway. Here we are. My eighth and final appearance at this unique event. And I am excited. If this material works well, I’m gonna use it at Goldman Sachs next year. Earn me some serious Tubmans! That’s right. That’s right.

My brilliant and beautiful wife…

I always thought Faux News welcomed that sort of rhetoric…

TPM LIVEWIRE

Ralph Peters, a Fox News analyst and retired Army officer, called the President “such a total pussy, it’s stunning” on Fox Business Monday morning, eventually prompting host Stuart Varney to demand Peters apologize.

Not long after, Stacey Dash, a contributor on the Fox talk show “Outnumbered,” was also incensed by Obama’s Sunday primetime address on terrorism, and said it seemed the President “could give a shit” during the Oval Office speech.

Both Fox contributors have been suspended for two weeks for the remarks, CNN Monday firstreported.

In a statement provided to TPM, Bill Shine, Fox senior executive vice president of programming, said:

Did Zimmerman Jeopardize His Appeal Against NBC

gz southparkWritten by scrodriguez.

Here we go again same (expletive), different toilet. George Zimmerman is playing the blame game again. This time he has pointed the finger at President Barack Obama stating that our president is to blame for racial tensions surrounding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Of course we expect the typical “I am not to blame” campaign headed by Zimmerman. after all his past clearly proves this right? I mean it wasn’t his fault that he was following an unarmed teen in the middle of the night first by car then by foot he didn’t create any scenario at all that would leave a kid to feel threatened no not good ole Georgie.

George follows the book, respects the law. (snark) I mean that is retardedevidenced by him disregarding the neighborhood watch handbook guide in which the Director of neighborhood watch clearly stated, time and time again, not to follow anybody. The handbook clearly states you are the eyes and ears for law enforcement — not the vigilante.  George’s actions remind me of a statement made at his trial by Rachel Jentel.

In fact, George was even reminded this on his non-emergency call when he reported a suspicious looking black teen walking through the Retreat at Twin Lakes. And of course, after several neighborhood watch meetings, after having read the handbook given to him and being reminded on the non-emergency call not to follow, George did not follow those instructions. In the end, he said it was Trayvon’s fault for his own death.

Oh wait – maybe it was the dispatcher’s fault for asking if he wanted to meet the arriving officer at the mailbox. Maybe it was the day of the week’s fault because he and Shellie always grocery shopped on Sunday evenings after he cooked dinner for her – although Shellie had left George the day before and was at her dad’s.

George Zimmerman Blames President Obama For Stirring Racial Tensions After Trayvon Martin’s Death

Reblogged from News One. (Not directly reblogged because of the size of a photo that might be a trigger alert for those traumatized by the face of George Zimmerman.)

In a newly released video, George Zimmerman — the former neighborhood watchman acquitted of murder in 2013 — blames President Obama for stirring racial tensions following the fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Zimmerman, who pursued and approached the 17-year-old as he walked to his father’s house, can be heard on the March 8 recording saying he was victimized by Obama and wrongly accused of being a racist by the media.

The Orlando Sentinel writes:

“…he faulted the media for portraying him as a racist and the criminal justice system for bringing him to trial but saved his harshest criticism for Obama, whom he accused of trying to prosecute “an innocent American.”

“For him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution, he by far over-stretched, over-reached,” Zimmerman said. The president, whom he referred to as “Barack Hussein Obama,” should have told the public, ” ‘Let’s not rush to judgment,’ ” Zimmerman said.”

The recording, released by his Tampa divorce lawyer Howard Iken of Ayo and Iken PLC, marks Zimmerman’s first public comments since the DOJ announced in February that he did not violate Trayvon’s rights. Since his acquittal and even during his numerous run-ins with the law following the trial, Zimmerman has remained mum and “still tightly guards his privacy,” according to The OS.
