OPERATION RACIAL FIREBOMB: INITIAL SUCCESSES

Ken Berwitz

In case you are wondering how media's post-Zimmerman verdict mission, Operation Racial Firebomb, is working out so far, here are a few examples:

-In Mississippi, a White jogger claims he was attacked by a group of Black men who told him, during the beating that it was retaliation "for Trayvon";

-In Baltimore, a group of Black men beat a Latino, while yelling "This is for Trayvon";

-In Milwaukee, a White man was repeatedly punched by Black teenagers, one of whom told him "This is for Trayvon Martin";

-In Oakland, marchers took over an intersection, terrorizing drivers, and tossing rocks and bottles at police...who did nothing about it - were apparently ordered to stand down and let it happen;

-In the Crenshaw section of Los Angeles, an estimated 80-150 protesters damaged cars and assaulted bystanders;

There is more.  Plenty more.  And you can bet your bottom dollar this is just the beginning.

Yes, media's Operation Racial Firebomb, at least so far, is a great success.

Oh, one other thing:  How does picking out a random White or Latino person and administering a beating "for Trayvon" differ from a White mob in, say, the 1930's South, grabbing a Black person - any Black person would do - to beat, maybe even lynch, over some real or imagined affront he/she had nothing to do with?    

So far we have not seen any killing of random White people over Trayvon Martin.  At least that part of the comparison to the 1930's South does not obtain.  But, truth be told, any day it happens will not surprise me.    

Stir up enough racial hatred and the possibilities are limitless. 


OBMACARE BUYERS' REMORSE: THE UNIONS

Ken Berwitz

Dissatisfaction with, even anger with, ObamaCare. 

It is not just the individual insurance owners who will lose their current plans.  Or the small business owners who will avoid expansion because they won't be able to afford the health care costs of expanding beyond 50 employees.  Or the large companies, which may hire a lot more part-timers instead of full time workers.  Now it is the major unions as well

That's right, the unions which put so much money and manpower into re-electing President Obama and insuring that he retained his senate majority.

Want proof?  No problem at all.

Here, in its entirety, is the letter that was sent to the Democrat leaders in the Senate (Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi) by the heads of three major unions, comprising millions of workers.  Read it and find out that even the most enthusiastic, vociferous supporters of ObamaCare are now starting to see this monstrosity for what it really is.  (The bold print is mine):

Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:

When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.

Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.

Now this vision has come back to haunt us.

Since the ACA was enacted, we have been bringing our deep concerns to the Administration, seeking reasonable regulatory interpretations to the statute that would help prevent the destruction of non-profit health plans. As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. This is especially stinging because other stakeholders have repeatedly received successful interpretations for their respective grievances. Most disconcerting of course is last week's huge accommodation for the employer community-extending the statutorily mandated "December 31, 2013" deadline for the employer mandate and penalties.

Time is running out: Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it. The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe. Perverse incentives are already creating nightmare scenarios:

First, the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees' work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers' hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.

Second, millions of Americans are covered by non-profit health insurance plans like the ones in which most of our members participate. These non-profit plans are governed jointly by unions and companies under the Taft-Hartley Act. Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.

And finally, even though non-profit plans like ours wont receive the same subsidies as for-profit plans, they'll be taxed to pay for those subsidies. Taken together, these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable, and will undermine the health-care market of viable alternatives to the big health insurance companies.

On behalf of the millions of working men and women we represent and the families they support, we can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.

We believe that there are common-sense corrections that can be made within the existing statute that will allow our members to continue to keep their current health plans and benefits just as you and the President pledged. Unless changes are made, however, that promise is hollow.

We continue to stand behind real health care reform, but the law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans including the members of our respective unions.

We are looking to you to make sure these changes are made.

That plain enough for you?

This letter tries hard to be conciliatory and talk about the ObamaCare disaster as something that can easily be fixed - understandable given that the unions don't want to look like fools for supporting ObamaCare in the first place   But I have a feeling that, behind closed doors, they know better than to think this will happen.  If it were that easy to make ObamaCare more palatable to unions, it would have been done in the original legislation.

And is there any doubt that other unions, comprising millions and millions of additional working people, feel the same way as the Teamsters, UFCW and UNITE-HERE, for exactly the same reasons?  Of course not.

Their big mistake was to believe anything that emanates from this President and this administration.  Now, maybe they have learned their lesson.  Too bad that the learning experience came so late.

free` Zeke, I made that same comment last week. Obama can just do what the French did. Mandatory maximum work week 30hrs. problem solved. Or cut the max hours to 12 hours a week and then unemployment will be around 0%. (07/16/13)


RACHEL JEANTEL'S LATEST STORY

Ken Berwitz

Now, as of yesterday's interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, we find out that Rachel Jeantel warned Trayvon Martin that George Zimmerman could have been a rapist.

MORGAN: You felt that there was no doubt in your mind from what Trayvon was telling you on the phone about the creepy ass cracka and so on, that he absolutely believed that George Zimmerman, this man, you didn't know who he was at the time, but this man, was pursuing him?

JEANTEL: Yes.

MORGAN: And he was freaked out by it?

JEANTEL: Yes. Definitely after I say may be a rapist, for every boy, for every man, every -- who's not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creep out?

"And people need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend's house to go get -- mind you, his little brother was there. You know -- now, mind you, I told you -- I told Trayvon it might have been a rapist."

This is the latest story from someone who seems to have a different story every time anyone talks to her.

Is she a serial liar, living in a deep fantasy world, as dumb as a post, or some combination of the three?  Every one of them is a definite possibility.

But, then again, we already knew that from her pre-trial deposition and trial testimony, didn't we?


I JUST CALLED TO SAY YOU'RE MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELF

Ken Berwitz

Stevie Wonder has announced that, because he did not like the fact that George Zimmerman was acquitted based on Florida's "Stand your ground" law, he will not perform in the state of Florida, or any other state that has a "stand your ground" law.

Except.....stand your ground was not argued by the defense and, based on the one juror who came forth for an interview, not the reason Zimmerman was acquitted.

Sad that a world famous entertainer like this would make such a fool of himself.

Call me the eternal optimist.  But I think, somehow, Florida will survive the loss of Stevie Wonder.

Zeke .... .... ... No, No, No, Stevie. ..... ..... Zimmie was acquitted based on Florida's law on Overtime Parking, or something. - - - - - Stand Yer Ground never was raised. ..... ...... (07/17/13)


OPERATION RACIAL FIREBOMB

Ken Berwitz

Another day, and other tidal wave of media coverage celebrating the angry, racialized marches - and, now, the rioting and violence which were an inevitable consequence of those marches.

Operation Racial Firebomb.  Media have done a brilliant job of creating it, orchestrating it, and now pouring accelerant on it.  

Try and find two sides to this story on any network but Fox (ironically, the one which other networks accuse of being one-sided).  To watch the "news" you would swear this country feels nothing but anger over the Zimmerman verdict. 

All you seem to see are sympathizers with Trayvon Martin's side of things - mostly, but not exclusively Black.  And, it saddens me to say, their opinions are all too often accompanied by claims about what happened that are not at all factual, but have been beaten into them by Operation Racial Firebomb: 

-No, the police did not order George Zimmerman back to his car:  a dispatcher, with no authority to order anything, said "we don't need you" to follow him.  That was not an order, it was an advisory he was not in any way obligated to obey:

-No, it is not true that Trayvon Martin was just trying to get back to his house:  based on the time stamps showing the end of Martin's conversation with Rachel Jeantel and the 911 calls saying there was a fight, he had four minutes to get to his father's girlfriend's house.  Walking at a normal pace - not the faster pace someone who was worried for his safety would have walked at - Trayvon Martin could have gotten to that house several times over.  The fact that he was not safely inside the house is because he intentionally did not go there.

-No, it is not true that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin for no reason at all:  according to eye-witness accounts, Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman beating him at the time.  

These are just some of the seemingly endless falsehoods that are out there about the Martin/Zimmerman confrontation. 

And that is before we get to the voluminous list of lies and misrepresentations put out by mainstream media immediately after the shooting and well beyond.  To repost from an earlier blog:

For months, media showed Trayvon Martin as a sweet, innocent little boy with a cute red shirt and a cherubic smile.  But that is nothing like what George Zimmerman saw.  There were other pictures of Trayvon Martin readily available to media, which showed him as he looked on the day of the shooting; as George Zimmerman saw him.  Countless bloggers lifted them right off of Martin's twitter page.  But not media.  They were too busy building a racially incendiary case against Zimmerman to worry about that.

Then there were the fuzzy pictures shown by ABC News, which supposedly proved Zimmerman had no injuries - pictures that were completely disproven afterwards by photos taken at the shooting scene.   And there was NBC's doctored audio, which made Zimmerman sound like he was proactively profiling Martin by color...but left out the part where the dispatcher asked him for that description.  And there was the claim that Zimmerman used a racially offensive word to the dispatcher, which later was retracted because he didn't.  Put these together, and is there any doubt at all that media poured gasoline on the racial flames?  That they intentionally accelerated the race angle of this story?  I don't know whether it was because of the ridiculous level of partisanship in today's media, because they figured it would build a story that would attract viewers (race stories are good at doing that), or a combination thereof.  But either way it was disgusting and abhorrent.

While we're on the subject of disgusting and abhorrent, let's not leave out President Barack Obama's racially inflammatory comment that "If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon".  What was that supposed to mean, Mr. President?  That Trayvon Martin was more important to you because he was Black - the implication being that he would be less important if he were not? 

Let me say it again.  The Trayvon Martin case has been turned from a sad, tragic shooting incident into a frightening national uprising.  This is happening because the media in this country, helped along mightily by a group of despicable racist hucksters - most prominently featuring  the career racist/Black supremacist/anti-semite al sharpton - and, most sadly of all, the racially incendiary comment of President Barack Obama, have nurtured and accelerated it into one. 

They will not rest until the budding riots in the streets (they have already started) and incidents of Black people beating White people "for Trayvon" (they have already started as well) go full-bore.

It is media's "Operation Fire Bomb".  And, from all appearances, it will continue until they can say "mission accomplished".


NANCY GRACE: RETRACTION

Ken Berwitz

Earlier this evening, in good faith, I wrote a blog excoriating HLN's Nancy Grace for making an offensive reference to George Zimmerman.

My source, mediaite.com, apparently got this wrong.  She did not make the reference, she was quoting someone else.

I have removed the blog and apologize to you, and to Ms. Grace for passing along bad information.

free` Ken, you weren't the only one to run that story. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2366248/Watch-Nancy-Grace-complains-George-Zimmerman-Hispanic-man-bond-driving-Taco-Bell-night-having-churro-trial.html (07/17/13)

free` You may be retracting your retraction. LOL (07/17/13)

free` Ken, also if you watch the video that the daily mail has, it has her saying the taco bell comment herself not the other guy. Please give it a watch I would like to know what you think about that video clip. (07/17/13)


TWO FACEBOOK QUOTES

Ken Berwitz

I won't tell you who posted these two facebook entries.  That is because I do not give specific information about relatives, and this person is a relative of mine - college educated and, in other areas, very intelligent.

Read them, and see what Operation Racial Firebomb turned him/her into:

I've never been so disgusted in my entire life. I hope someone is waiting outside the courtroom to shoot Zimmerman in his head and take out the rest of his family along with them.

If you think the verdict that just came down was just, then I hope that someone who is armed feels threatened by you in the near future. 

Translation:  My relative wants Zimmerman dead.  His family dead.  And anyone who agrees with the verdict dead.

I know this person and, as odious as these wishes are, I am 100% certain he/she will never act on them.  But I can't say that about everyone else. 

What will the despicable "journalists" pouring gasoline on this situation say if (more likely, when) there are killings over it?  Will they cluck and wonder how things got to this stage?  Or will they celebrate and tell us it is nothing more than justice for Trayvon?

One thing they will not do, I assure you, is blame themselves. 

BOB W Did this relative stand and cheer when OJ was set free?? I hope that your relative is a "distant" relative---very distant. (07/16/13)

OBAMACARE & THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE POLL

Ken Berwitz

What is ObamaCare going to do to small businesses?

This Chamber of Commerce report just might tell you:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's latest quarterly small business survey finds that Washington policies continue to hamper hiring and growth, with over a quarter of small businesses saying they have lost employees in the last year.

Quarter 2
Small Business Outlook Survey - July 2013 (NOTE:  click the empty space immediately below to see the full study)

Among the key findings:

Key Findings

Health Care Law is Top Concern

  • Concern about Obamacare has increased by 10-points since June 2011 and by 4 points since last quarter
  • 71% of small businesses say the health care law makes it harder to hire.

  • Only 30% say they are prepared for the requirements of the law, including participation in the marketplaces.

  • Among small businesses that will be impacted by the employer mandate, one-half of small businesses say that they will either cut hours to reduce full time employees OR replace full time employees with part-time workers to avoid the mandate.  24% say they will reduce hiring to stay under 50 employees.

How much uglier could this be? 

According to the US Chamber of Commerce, 74% - that is just about 3/4 - of small businesses say they will either cut hours, or reduce hiring to stay under 50 employees.  Does that sound like ObamaCare is anything but a disaster to you?

Now the big question:  will Barack Obama's Accomplice Media even bother to report the information you just read, let alone talk about what it means?

Don't bet on it.  They have spent over five years earning the right to be called "Accomplice Media", and they're not about to give it up any time soon.

free' iirc, the US Chamber of Commerce was a supporter of obamacare? Pelosi wasn't joking when she said we would have to pass it to know what's in it. (07/16/13)
