Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

As Drudge reported this morning, this news report was only aired once. Why? Because it was unflattering to the president's home town of Chicago. What does it say about the state of things when the battle for the Olympics comes down to Chicago or Rio and Chicagoans want them to take place in Rio? That'd almost be like Bears fans rooting for the Packers at Soldier Field.

So what's the deal? This morning, Drudge reported:
A local TV station that reported on Chicagoans NOT wanting the Olympics has been told NOT to run the report again, insiders tell the DRUDGE REPORT!

The Chicago Olympic Committee told FOX Chicago that its broadcast "would harm Chicago's chances" to be awarded the games.

The station's news director ordered staff to hold fire after the report aired once last Thursday morning, claims a source.

Chicago, Madrid, Tokyo and Rio are mounting strong bids for the honor to host in 2016.
The International Olympic Committee makes its decision on Friday. President Obama will lead the in-person push.
So who on earth would tell the local television station, WFLD not to air this report? Well, MICHELLE MALKIN provides some interesting context:
The president himself will now join cronies Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama to personally lobby in Copenhagen for Chicago’s bid.

On Tuesday, there will be a No Chicago Games protest reflecting the 84 percent opposition to the Olympics boondoggle.

Will they be accused of being an “angry mob,” too?
Hmmmmm.. So why would the citizens of Chicago be against the Olympics in their city while Barack and Michelle seem to be all for it? Is this a matter of 'follow the money'?

Here is MALKIN'S entire piece.


Uh, pardon me for asking but...........WHAT TOOK SO LONG? On July 24th, Hillary Clinton called Zelaya's actions "reckless" when he crossed the border of Nicaragua into Honduras by foot with his tinfoil cowboy hat and a megaphone.

Last week, Zelaya sneaks into the capital of Honduras (Tegucigalpa) and takes refuge inside the Brazilian embassy. Yes, that was ONE WEEK AGO. Only now is the Obama administration making any kind of statement on Zelaya's antics. It's a shame they waited until after he made the delusional claim that Israeil mercenaries were planning to assassinate him while Israeli operatives were poisoning him with radiation. I guess you can start having visions when you have to sleep on chairs and don't have toothpaste.

Now for the real question. If the Obama administration thought Zelaya was "reckless" in July and that he's "foolish" for his latest stunt, how long will it take them to see the truth - Zelaya was removed from power legally.

REUTERS reported:
The United States blasted ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya for his "irresponsible and foolish" return from exile before a settlement was reached in the Central American country's political crisis.

At an emergency meeting of the Organization of American States to discuss the Honduran face-off, Lewis Anselem, the U.S. ambassador to the OAS, also criticized Honduras' de facto government for its "deplorable" action in barring entry of an OAS mission and declaring a state of siege on Sunday.


I love J.C. Watts. In fact, my high regard for him as a person and a politician should exempt me from charges of racism for disagreeing with Obama on practically everything that comes out of his mouth. Watts wrote an Op-ed that appeared in the Las Vegas Review Journal that excoriates Jimmy Carter for making such unsubstantiated and egregious claims.

The first paragraph of Watts' piece is particularly telling and goes right to the heart of the hypocrisy that is so prevalent on the left.
"There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."

That comment comes from former President Jimmy Carter, which is fascinating considering Carter once ran for governor of Georgia proclaiming himself to be a "Lester Maddox Democrat." (Maddox, a former Georgia governor, was an avowed segregationist who opposed integration under the Civil Rights Act.)
Jimmy Carter, who once considered himself to be in the mold of a segregationist, is lecturing conservatives on matters of race?

The last paragraph is good too:
Ironically, I wonder how President Carter would view things if it were President Clarence Thomas proposing tax relief, protection for the unborn, raising the troop levels in Afghanistan or exploring for oil right here in the United States.
The big meaty middle is worth reading too.
