Dunham Is Hailed As Role Model Despite False Claims

Why not? She has done everything exactly by the liberal book. Besides, her intentions were good.

From a seemingly surprised Breitbart:

After Falsely Accusing an Innocent Man, Lena Dunham Is Celebrated as a Rape Role Model

By John Nolte | April 27, 2015

[D]espite the fact that [Lena Dunham’s] unconscionable behavior resulted in an innocent family man being accused of her rape, the “Girls” creator is still being celebrated and honored as a sexual assault role model at events like this weekend’s Variety’s Power of Women New York Luncheon, and throughout  the mainstream media….

[Part of the] massive public relations campaign around the release of her auto-biography was the news that she had been raped by a campus Republican. In the autobiography, which was labeled as non-fiction, Dunham described her rapist using seven completely unnecessary details:

* [He] is named Barry.

One Affleck Ancestor Might Not Have Owned Slaves!

Stop the presses! This 2,149 words and 44 paragraph articles shows that the news media can really investigate when they want to.

From the Daily Beast:

Exclusive: Ben Affleck’s Ancestor Did Not Own Slaves, Tax Documents Show

By Brandy Zadrozny | April 28, 2015

[N]ew research conducted by The Daily Beast and Georgia genealogist Barbara Stock suggests that Benjamin L. Cole—Affleck’s great-great-great-grandfather on his mother’s side—was hardly the wealthy Southern plantation owner that Finding Your Roots claimed, and that the small-town Georgia sheriff may not have owned slaves at all.

‘May not have.’ That is some strong language for an ‘exclusive.’

Using Georgia tax digests from Chatham County and Savannah—which give an annual account of wealth, including slave ownership—in conjunction with the census, which took a count only once a decade, Stock found evidence that while Affleck’s ancestor was the executor of estates that included slaves, he owned none himself.

12 Of Affleck’s Ancestors Owned A Total Of 214 Slaves

But Professor Gates told us he dropped Affleck’s slavery owning ancestors because they weren’t as interesting as some of his other ancestors. Even though Gates and his target audience are obsessed with slavery.

From Breitbart:

Ben Affleck Has Another Nine Slaveholder Ancestors From Throughout the South

By Michael Patrick Leahy | April 27, 2015

Hollywood movie star Ben Affleck has another nine slaveholder ancestors [in addition to the three already reported], according to publicly available U.S. Census records and genealogy research conducted by Breitbart News.

Last week, Affleck admitted that he successfully pressured Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates to edit his Georgia slaveholding ancestor, Benjamin Cole, out of an episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots” that featured his family history…

But even then Gate still lied about why he removed the slave angle.

Top Iranian General: The US Was Behind 9/11 Attacks

Not all the news today is local. There are still other things happening in the world besides riots.

First from an outraged Politico:

GOP won’t commit to help Democrats reject Iran amendments

By Burgess Everett | April 27, 2015

Democrats are demanding that Republicans help them rebuff hot button amendments to a bipartisan nuclear review bill. But GOP leaders, on the eve of the first potential votes on the measure, have refused to commit to working in tandem, according to sources in both parties…

Republicans won’t work with the Democrat leadership against their own conservative members? No wonder the Politico is shocked and angry.

Democrats want assurances from Republican leaders that GOP amendments requiring Iran to recognize the state of Israel or demanding the release of Americans held by Tehran will be defeated resoundingly with no votes from both sides…

Do those crazy Republican Senators imagine the Constitution gives them some say over treaties with foreign governments?

Baltimore Schools See Riots As ‘A Teachable Moment’

From an approving Huffington Post:

Baltimore Schools Look For ‘A Teachable Moment’ Amidst Freddie Gray Tensions

By Rebecca Klein | April 27, 2015

On a day of civil and violent unrest sparked by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in police custody last week, officials from the Baltimore City School District announced that they are making crisis counselors and mental health professionals available at schools throughout the city for "as long as it is necessary."

To keep the kids whipped up over something that nobody has little to no information about. We don’t even have a ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie to work with.

"At this time of tension and anxiety regarding the tragic events surrounding Mr. Freddie Gray, we have a heightened responsibility to our students, families, and school communities," said school district leaders in a statement Monday.

Cops Across US On Alert, MSNBC: Cops Out Of Control

MSNBC just says what the rest of the MSM actually thinks, but try not to say out loud.

But first there is this from Breitbart:

Gangs Around Nation Threaten Police

By William Bigelow | April 27, 2015

After Baltimore police reported a “credible threat” that some of the notorious gangs around the nation—including the Black Guerrilla Family, the Bloods, and the Crips—have ordered their members to target officers, various police departments are taking steps to protect their officers. The Los Angeles Police Department told their officers to ride in pairs; the Connecticut State Police sent out a bulletin to their troopers; the Fairfield, Connecticut, police made a pubic request for citizens to report “suspicious activities”; and the San Francisco Police Department acknowledged it is taking “tactical precautions.” …

Mayor’s Office Explains Her ‘Space To Destroy’ Remark

Even accepting this explanation, it’s hard to see how the mayor created any balance. The police appear to have been ordered to stand back while thugs looted and burned stores and businesses.

From the Washington Examiner:

How the Baltimore Mayor’s office explains her infamous ‘space to destroy’ remark

By Philip Klein | April 27, 2015

… How could a mayor actually say she asked police to allow people to destroy property? According to her office, her statement didn’t quite come out the way she intended it to: "What she is saying within this statement was that there was an effort to give the peaceful demonstrators room to conduct their peaceful protests on Saturday," her office said in a statement released on Monday.

"Unfortunately, as a result of providing the peaceful demonstrators with the space to share their message, that also meant that those seeking to incite violence also had the space to operate.

Obama Told MD’s Governor To Exercise ‘Due Restraint’

After all, it was probably Maryland’s Republican governor and his unrestrained police who were causing all of the trouble.

From Breitbart:

Team Obama To Respond To Baltimore Rioting; Requests Law Enforcement Restraint

By Charlie Spiering | April 27, 2015

As the rioting grew fiercer in Baltimore following the funeral of Freddy Grey on Monday, the Obama administration issued statements vowing to end the violence…

And yet it didn’t stop? Too bad Mr. Obama couldn’t find the time to go on TV, as he normally does when he wants to comment on something in the news. (Cf. Trayvon Martin. Ferguson.)

Shortly after 5:00 p.m., President Obama met with newly sworn in Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the Oval Office and received an update on the situation in Baltimore.

Baltimore Riots Raise Questions About Police Response

What questions? It’s clear Ms. Rawlings-Blake wanted to give the rioters more time and space ‘to destroy.’

From not a really questioning Associated Press:

Riots in Baltimore raise questions about police response

By TOM FOREMAN Jr. and AMANDA LEE MYERS | April 28, 2015

BALTIMORE (AP) — … State and local authorities pledged to restore order and calm to Baltimore, but quickly found themselves responding to questions about whether their initial responses had been adequate.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was asked why she waited hours to ask the governor to declare a state of emergency, while the governor himself hinted she should have come to him earlier.

Ms. Rawlings-Blake had to call Mr. Obama first. Who probably told her (as he told the governor) that the most important thing was to restrain the police.

Baltimore Sun: Looting Started By A Flier About A Movie

For some odd reason the Sun decided to bury its own scoop. But most of the looting was inspired by a flier passed out to school kids. A flier about a movie that celebrates what life would be like without any laws.

From the Baltimore Sun:

Riots erupt across West Baltimore, downtown

By Scott Dance | April 28, 2015

… Violence and looting overtook much of West Baltimore on Monday, injuring more than a dozen police officers and leaving buildings and vehicles in flames.

Who knew violence and looting could just break out like that? Nobody has to do it. It just happens.

As night fell, looters took to Mondawmin Mall and a Save-A-Lot and Rite Aid in Bolton Hill, loading up cars with stolen goods.

AP: Police Transported Freddie Gray Without A Seat Belt!

This is from last week, but it’s a handy summation of what little we know about what happened to Freddie Gray. Not that Freddie Gray’s fate has much to do with the rioting and looting.

From an apoplectic Associated Press:

Rough Ride? Lawyer Says Fatally Injured Arrestee Lacked Belt

BALTIMORE — By JULIET LINDERMAN and CURT ANDERSON | April 23, 2015

No video captured what happened to Freddie Gray inside the police van where officers heaved him into a metal compartment after pinning him to a sidewalk. The cause of his fatal spine injury has not been revealed.

"Metal compartment"? It was a typical police van with the typical facing seats down the two sides. The same kind used all over the country, all over the world.

GoFundMe Pulls Sweet Cakes Page ‘For Heinous Crimes’

So not baking a cake for a same sex couple is now a ‘heinous crime.’ How quickly our laws ‘evolve.’

From the Washington Times:

Gay-rights advocates torpedo GoFundMe campaign for Christian-owned bakery

By Valerie Richardson | April 25, 2015

A crowdfunding campaign that raised more than $109,000 for the Christian-owned bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon was removed Saturday after complaints from gay rights advocates. The website GoFundMe said in a statement that the page was yanked because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”

Just a few short years ago it would have been the other way around. By the way, who knew that both Obama and Hillary were ‘heinous criminals’ for opposing same sex marriage until a few months ago?

Clinton Foundation ‘Admits’ Mistakes — Blames Canada

Translation: We are going to pretend we got caught doing something nobody cares about, while ignoring the real problem.

From the Associated Press:

Clinton Foundation acknowledges mistakes in revealing donors

By HOPE YEN | April 27, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — The acting chief executive of the Clinton Foundation says the global philanthropy is working quickly to remedy mistakes it made in how it disclosed donors, saying that its policies on transparency and contributions from foreign governments are "stronger than ever."

Which is what criminals always say when they get caught.

Maura Pally posted the statement Sunday on the foundation’s website… Pally said the Clinton Foundation expected to refile some of its tax forms, following a voluntary external review, because it had "mistakenly combined" government grants with other donations…

How does a charity make such an obvious mistake?

Charity Watchdog Put Clinton Foundation On Watch List

What a great testimonial for the Clinton Foundation: ‘We’re just as trustworthy as Al Sharpton!’

From the New York Post:

Charity watchdog: Clinton Foundation a ‘slush fund’

By Isabel Vincent | April 26, 2015

The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month. The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.

That is 6% by our math.

The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends. On its 2013 tax forms, the most recent available, the foundation claimed it spent $30 million on payroll and employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent and office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel.
