Racist ESPN host Rob Parker suggests RGIII ‘pushes away’ from ‘his people’

It hasn’t been a great 24 hours for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The rookie captain wasn’t able to finish Sunday’s playoff loss to the Seahawks after his knee buckled midway through the fourth quarter.

The Redskins were eliminated, 24-14 and questions of whether or not head coach Mike Shanahan should have pulled Griffin dominated sports pages and media Monday.

And then Rob Parker re-emerged.

Sunday morning, hours before the Redskins playoff game, the suspended ESPN host talked exclusively with WDIV-TV’s Devin Scillian on the station’s weekly community affairs program ‘Flashpoint.’

Parker said his ‘cornball brother’ comments were taken out of context and admits he was “shocked” it received national attention:

“It was never to condemn the young man,” Parker told Scillian. “RGIII is a great young man with a bright future. It was more about concerns not condemning.”

Parker continued:

“It was just a conversation that’s had in the black community when athletes, or famous entertainers or whatever, push away from their people. And that’s really what it’s about. You saw it with O.J. Simpson, and some other people, where they say, ‘Well I’m not black, I’m O.J.’ So it’s more about that, not about RGIII and what’s going on. It’s more about this thing that we’ve battled for years and why people have pushed away from their people. It’s more about that.”

Planned Parenthood Touts over 333,000 Babies Murdered in 2011

And the American genocide continues, with 333,964 murders in 2011. That’s the figure proudly released by Planned Parenthood Federation of America in their report delineating how many abortions they performed in fiscal 2011. Doing some simple math reveals that the number of abortions performed equates to one abortion every 94 seconds.

And Planned Parenthood can be pleased with their progress: the number of abortions they performed in 2011 was up from 2010, when they snuffed out 329,445 lives. And the U.S. government can carry the banner high with the abortion provider; Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements,” including “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.”

Planned Parenthood isn’t hurting. Its assets total $1,244.7 billion.

In the “Message From The Chair And President” Cecilia Boone and Cecile Richards, there is not one mention of abortion. Not one. They prance around that issue, boasting of how they bullied the Susan G. Komen Foundation For The Cure into reversing its decision to exclude Planned Parenthood from their centers.

Cuomo Close To Announcing Sweeping New Gun Control Laws That Will Allow Criminals To Rule The Strets

A deal to give New York one of the toughest gun control laws in the nation is being negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who, sources said Tuesday, is hoping to announce the plan Wednesday during his State of the State speech in Albany.

Cuomo hopes to jump-start the 2013 legislative session with a big deal that could dramatically alter gun control laws across the state.

Highly placed sources told CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer that Cuomo is negotiating with Assembly and Senate leaders for a package of gun control laws that would be a dramatic response to the gun violence besetting the nation, including the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

“It’s a very divisive topic,” Cuomo said on Wednesday. “There’s a lot of energy on both sides. Some people are vehemently against’ some people think we’re out of our minds for not passing it.”

Sources told Kramer the governor and lawmakers are negotiating furiously in the hope that Cuomo can announce a deal during his speech Wednesday.

Listen All Y’all It’s a Sabotage

Lawmakers push for new laws to punish union sabotage

Lawmakers and activists are attempting to rein in union exemptions from extortion laws after several high profile acts of suspected union sabotage in 2012.

Labor groups are immune from prosecution under the Hobbs Act, a 1946 provision that criminalized extortion and robbery using the threat or fear of force. Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah) attempted to close that loophole last year with the Freedom from Union Violence Act (FUVA).

The bill never left committee but Lee has pledged to crack down on the sabotage and violence some unions use during labor disputes.

“Union violence and intimidation are serious issues and my legislation is an effort to close the loophole that protects unions from being held accountable for their actions,” Lee said. “Threatening workers and damaging property shouldn’t be defended as ‘legitimate union objectives’ and the law should be clear about that.”

Republicans have made several attempts to bring unions under the Hobbs umbrella over the past 25 years, according to Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

“[The Hobbs exemption] is really an amazing special privilege only granted to unions,” Mix said. “We are trying to clarify the provisions of the act so that picket line violence is treated the same as rioting and other forms of violence, but union influence has killed [the bills] every time.”

Labor allies have prevented FUVA from advancing through either chamber of Congress but Mix said a spate of alleged union violence in 2012 has made the need for reform apparent.

An arsonist damaged a Quaker meetinghouse’s construction site in December because it employed non-union workers. The Philadelphia Police Department suspects that union members are responsible.

“I absolutely think it is a union issue,” Philadelphia Police Lt. George McClay told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Additionally, American Airlines in October experienced a spike in loose airplane seats and delayed flights during contract negotiations with the pilot’s union. The union and the airline have both denied any connection between the incidents and the labor dispute.

Death penalty for holding Bible?

Just possessing a Bible still can be cause for a death penalty in North Korea, so it’s no surprise that the hermit kingdom remains No. 1 on this year’s World Watch List of the world’s most notorious persecutors of Christians, a project assembled by Open Doors USA.

Persecution of believers also increased sharply across Africa, eight out of 10 worst offenders are ruled by Muslim theocracy and Egypt, under the Muslim Brotherhood, actually saw its ranking lowered, but not because of any improvement there. It was because of worsening conditions elsewhere, the report said.

In North Korea, a possible lesser penalty for someone having a Bible would be for the offender, and three generations of his or her family, to be sent to prison camps, where at estimated 50,000 to 70,000 people are held.

Open Doors’ Senior Communications Specialist Paul Estabrook says the reclusive communist dictatorship earned the ranking based on the group’s five criteria for evaluating a country.

“North Korea doesn’t allow Christians any freedom in any of the five spheres used in the process,” Estabrook said.

“We use five spheres, the private, family, community, congregational, and public. … North Korea doesn’t allow Christians any freedom,” Estabrook said.

In addition, the dictatorship maintains a gulag, he noted.

“North Korea is known to have somewhere between 50,000 to 70,000 Christians in forced labor camps. And they’re there for doing nothing except trying to worship the Lord,” Estabrook said.

That aligns with what WND reported in July, that under newly installed leader Kim Jong-un, the enigmatic nation of North Korea still has about 70,000 people in work camps.

Sources confirmed North Korea has eased or lifted a number of restrictions for citizens since Kim Jong-un succeeded his father, Kim Jong-il. Bans have been lifted on Western foods such as pizza and french fries, and restrictions on the number of cell phones have been loosened, for example, according to Ryan Morgan, an analyst with International Christian Concern Asia.

However, whatever secular benefits may have trickled down to residents of the isolated nation, there is no evidence of any improvement in the condition of the persecuted church there, he said.

“We have not heard any reports of improvement for Christians in the country and have no reason to believe anything has changed,” Morgan said. “The regime still has up to 70,000 Christians locked away in virtual concentration camps.”

NBC Medical Editor Okay With Publishing Gun Owner Addresses: ‘We’re Not Outing Child Molesters’

During a panel discussion on Tuesday’s NBC Today, chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman voiced her support for a New York newspaper, The Journal News, publishing a list of addresses of local gun owners: “You have these sort of blind assumptions that when your child goes over to play with another kid, he or she is going to be safe. And I think that has been now negated. So I have no problem….we’re not outing child molesters, this is a legal transaction, it’s a public transaction.”

Snyderman’s declaration was prompted by fellow panelist, advertising executive Donny Deutsch, also standing by the paper’s controversial action: “I think it’s a great idea, I’ll tell you why. I’ve got two little girls at home and I would like to know if they’re going on a play date in a house where there’s a gun….when you have a gun, you are setting yourself up as somebody different. It’s your choice…”

Gawker Publishes Complete 446-Page List of ‘All the A**holes Who Own Guns in New York City’

The website Gawker has outdone New York’s “Journal News” and published the names of all licensed gun owners in New York City. With the provocative headline, “Here Is a List of All the A**holes Who Own Guns in New York City,” John Cook provides a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in NYC, obtained two-and-a-half years ago via a Freedom of Information Act request.

“Below is a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in New York City…Because the NYPD is more interested in raping and/or eating ladies and spying on Muslims than it is in honoring public records law, the list contains only the names, and not the addresses, of the licensees,” Cook writes.

The Journal News sparked outrage when it published the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland Counties. The paper wanted to also publish the information of gun owners in Putnam County, N.Y., but so far the county has refused, saying providing the information would put the public in danger.

As Cook correctly points out, section 400.00 of the Penal Law of New York, entitled “Licenses to carry, possess, repair and dispose of firearms,” makes addresses of licensed gun owners public information. “The name and address of any person to whom an application for any license has been granted shall be a public record,” the law states.

Critics argue, however, just because information is publicly available, that doesn’t mean it should be published online and in newspapers for criminals and others to see. In other states, like Texas, the personal information of concealed weapons license holders is considered confidential.

In his post, Cook also brags about outing Fox News chief Roger Ailes, Sean Hannity, Howard Stern, Don Imus, Donald Trump and others as gun owners with permits to own or carry firearms in the city in 2010.

Teen socialist sworn in as school board member in New Jersey

A 19-year-old socialist became an official member of the Red Bank Regional High School Board of Education in Monmouth County, N.J., last week.

Pat Noble defeated incumbent Nilsa Samol in the November 2012 election. He is a graduate of The Academy of Allied Health & Science, a vocational high school that emphasizes health occupations and the hard sciences.

Noble divides the bulk of his time working at his job as a clerk in a local pharmacy and promoting the Socialist Party of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, which he co-founded, reports NJ.com. He opines enthusiastically about a host of issues ranging from taxation to foreign policy to education.

The teenage radical says his interest in socialism was piqued in high school when he heard people use the word “socialist” as an insult.

“I decided to do some research into what the problem was with it, and I never found it,” Noble told NJ.com. He describes the economic system as “a society built for the majority instead of the elite minority” and says people who don’t like socialism “have false logic.”

“You reach more people, more quickly when you win an election,” Noble added, according to NJ.com. “I’m hoping to bring a different perspective, a left-wing perspective to a board full of capitalists.”

Noble told NJ.com that budget concerns are his top priority as a board of education member. He campaigned on a multitude of issues including sex education in schools and adding LGBT-related lessons to the curriculum.

The young apparatchik also wants to ban military recruitment from school campuses.

Case claims pastor’s Christian beliefs are criminal

A judge this morning took under advisement a request to dismiss a lawsuit filed on behalf of a group of “gays” in Uganda who allege that an American pastor’s opposition to homosexuality is an international criminal offense.

The request was filed by Liberty Counsel on behalf of Rev. Scott Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries. LC Senior Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet told WND the judge indicated a ruling would be coming soon.

But he warned that at the heart of the case against Lively is the belief that the First Amendment free speech protections should play second fiddle to an international consensus that criticism of homosexuality is criminal.

The arguments were heard in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mass., in the claim brought by a foreign group called Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG), which alleges that Lively’s criticism of homosexuality constituted “crimes against humanity” in violation of “international law” and his speech must be punished.

The plaintiffs allege that the Alien Tort Statute in the United States allows them to do that inside the United States.

Defense lawyers, however, warn that an outcome favorable to SMUG would mean that the U.S. Constitution no longer governs the United States. The bedrock First Amendment protections, they contend, would become “subservient to the inchoate and amorphous dictates of ‘international law.’”

Mihet told WND he argued that the lawsuit was prevented by the First Amendment, which puts the U.S. Constitution at a standing higher than international law.

Mihet said it’s always difficult to predict what a judge may decide, but he was encouraged by the judge’s statement that he was “very troubled by the idea that an American citizen could be punished for sharing ideas and beliefs with others, even if someone is offended.”

He said the judge showed a commitment to the First Amendment.

The case against Lively claims that by speaking in opposition to homosexuality, he was conspiring to deprive the plaintiffs of their fundamental rights.
