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

Catholic priest Michael Pfleger is a white race hustler and friend of Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Hate Speech. He notoriously burst onto the scene in 2008 when he got very political from the pulpit, singling out Hillary Clinton specifically and playing to the crowd who was obviously very willing to encourage Pfleger's theatrics. He was suspended from his job as pastor of St. Sabina's Catholic Church for a grand total of two weeks. Upon returning to work, he made NO apology.

Pfleger should have been de-frocked. Instead, he was given less than a slap on the wrist and didn't even see the error of his ways; he should have been required to apologize, at a minimum, in order to keep from getting kicked out of the church.

Ah, but that was then and this is now. Less than two years later, Michael Pfleger is scheduled to find himself on the receiving end of a Lifetime Achievement Award for his role in furthering "Racial Justice".

Via eNews Park Forest:
Along with the St. Katharine Drexel Racial Justice Awards, the Office for Racial Justice will honor Bishop Joseph Perry and Father Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina Parish, with Lifetime Achievement Awards in recognition of their lives of service in pursuit of dismantling racism, injustice and inequalities on behalf of African Americans and all people of color.
To illustrate how absurd such a notion is, check out this excerpt from one of Pfleger's sermons. The video has been pulled but have a look at the transript:
"It's like saying to a woman who's been repeatedly raped over, and over, and over, and over, over, and over [and telling her] 'you need to get over it.' 'The HELL I do,' [she would say]. Get the sucker who's been raping me and make him pay.' Well, America has been raping people of color, and America has to pay the price. America has to pay the price for the rape."
I'm as critical of Hillary as anybody but if the video below the is emblematic of racial justice, it should be blatantly obvious that Pfleger is more qualified to receive an award for exacerbating racial hatred.

Yes, the Catholic Church is giving this man a Lifetime Achievement Award, for what I have no idea.

When Representative Joe Sestak (D-PA) honestly answered a question about whether the White House offered him a job if he'd drop out of his primary race with Arlen Specter for the latter's Senate seat, the one word response - yes - raised eyebrows. Here we are several weeks after Sestak told a talk show host that the White House explicitly asked him to drop out of the race and the controversy continues to simmer.

If you'd like to be brought up to speed from the beginning, click here, here, and here.

There is nothing earth shaking about the latest developments but the low rumble underneath the service continues. Whether it's the White House spokesman Robert Gibbs stonewalling repeated questions about the controversy or a similar story in Colorado involving Senator Michael Bennet's (D) opponent, Andrew Romanoff, the longer this scandal percolates, the more likely it will one day boil over.

Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform panel, has been sending letters to the White House demanding answers. They continue to garner no response.

Via the Morning Call:
Issa, a Southern California pol who on numerous occasions has accused the administration of ''Chicago-like politics,'' has demanded the White House come clean about the alleged job offer.

He is the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform panel. He has sent the White House two letters, on March 10 and March 22, asking specific questions about Sestak's claim.

Issa has not received a response, according to his spokesman, Kurt Bardella.

In the second letter, Issa gave the White House until April 5 to respond.

Bardella said Issa would extend the deadline, giving the Obama administration until after the Easter holiday to answer before contacting U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and asking that a special prosecutor investigate whether a crime had been committed.

''Either Joe Sestak is lying or the White House is lying,'' Bardella said. ''There is no gray area here.''
The article goes on to explain that the quid pro quo must be clearly established for this scandal to become full blown. Even then, Attorney General Eric Holder would actually have to initiate an investigation and the odds of that happening are about as good as Holder voluntarily divulging why the Justice Department dropped its slam dunk case against the Black Panthers, who were caught on tape wielding a night stick outside of a polling station on election day, 2008.

Nonetheless, if this scandal is able to - over time - generate the type of public engagement seen in the Tea Party movement, the levee very well could break at some point.

One of the monikers attributed to Barack Obama is, "The Anointed One" and his supporters don't seem to like it being used - unless of course, it's used in the right setting. It's apparently ok if a Pastor says it during an Easter church service with Obama in attendance. I am not under-stating this. Pastor Michael E. Bell, Sr. literally used that word.

POLITICO reports:
Bell referred to the president as the ``most intelligent, most anointed, most charismatic president of America," and called Mrs. Obama ``his beautiful wife – TV cameras don’t do her justice."

"God has His hand all over you,’’ Pastor Bell said, referring to the president. ``Anyone would be foolish to come up against him.’’
In light of the Tea Party movement being demagogued for alleged "hate speech", I would like to know what that last sentence is supposed to mean.

Yes, a pastor at a church - during a service - said it would be "foolish" to oppose Obama. Uh, Reverend Bell, this country was founded on the premise that leaders be held accountable to "We The People".

Please explain, Reverend.
