WOW! While doing a feature on a 103 year-old black woman named Miss Flamer, who not only still appears to have all her faculties left but drives a cadillac through town, CNN ended the segment with rap music in the background while showing video of Miss Flamer getting into her car before pulling away to tool around. There was a small problem with the lyrics.

As CNN showed Miss Flamer, viewers also heard a song that contained the lyrics, "Punk Ass N*gga".

This story has a stench rivaled only by one of the dead fish Rahm Emanuel dropped in the mailbox. On Sunday, May 16th, SEIU thugs loaded up into several buses in Washington, D.C. and went to the home of a Bank of America attorney Greg Baer, which was in Maryland's Montgomery county. They picketed outside Baer's home with only the attorney's fourteen year-old son inside. The boy was terrorized by the community organisms.

No arrests were made. Not one. Two police officers appeared on Megyn Kelly's show on the Fox News Channel to make their case. The representative from D.C. Metro was Patrick Burke, Asst. Chief of police there. The man from the Montgomery County police was Captain Paul Stark. Of the two, Stark's answers to Kelly's questions were the most bizarre. His explanations and accounts simply didn't add up. The fact that inconsistencies expressed by Stark were coming from the mouth of a police captain were equally stunning.

BACKDROP: D.C. Metro police allegedly followed fourteen SEIU buses to the Montgomery County border in Maryland and alerted Montgomery County police who then sent three police officers to the home of Baer. The most suspect claim from Stark about why no arrests were made is that by the time his officers arrived, the thugs were leaving and nothing unlawful had been witnessed. He completely dismisses the notion that the protesters were on the property for an hour, saying it was only minutes.

This is simply not believable. As Mike Flynn at Big Government points out, the notion that the following all happened in the span of minutes and before police arrived - police who had been notified prior to the arrival of these protesters - is simply not possible.

1. Fourteen buses would have to park
2. 500 protesters would have to get off the buses, collectively grabbing their signs in unison
3. 500 protesters would have to walk onto Baer's lawn
4. At least one protester gets up on Baer's porch and uses a megaphone to whip up her comrades into a frenzy
5. A fourteen year-old boy is sufficiently terrorized enough to lock himself in a bathroom

I find the most noteworthy portion of this clip to be Kelly's mention to Stark of the claim made by Fox News Contributor Nina Easton, who actually lives in Baer's neighborhood. Easton actually wrote a column about the whole experience and it is very much worth reading. You can read it HERE. Easton wrote:
Intimidation was the whole point of this exercise, and it worked-even on the police. A trio of officers who belatedly answered our calls confessed a fear that arrests might "incite" these trespassers.
Note what Easton says here. All three of the officers conceded that arrests might "incite" the protesters. The most telling part of Stark's answer was what he DIDN'T say. He did NOT call Easton a liar or imply that she was wrong. He simply said that he understood it differently.

Probably the biggest reason why I believe Easton over Stark is that intimidating authorities into this exact thing is straight out of the Community Organism playbook. Rule #9 to be exact:
Rule 9: The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself. When Alinsky leaked word that large numbers of poor people were going to tie up the washrooms of O’Hare Airport, Chicago city authorities quickly agreed to act on a longstanding commitment to a ghetto organization. They imagined the mayhem as thousands of passengers poured off airplanes to discover every washroom occupied. Then they imagined the international embarrassment and the damage to the city’s reputation.
This tactic EXACTLY speaks to Easton's claims about what she said those three cops told her. No one likes to admit to cowardice or succumbing to intimidation, especially the police. That may explain why Stark is dismissing the charge.

Pennsylvania Senate candidate Pat Toomey (R) appeared on Sean Hannity's television show and discussed the 'Jobsgate' scandal involving his opponent Joe Sestak and the White House. I thought Toomey did well in publicly talking about the issue and hinting that he believes there is a legitimate problem. That said, Hannity pressed him a bit on the statement released by Toomey's office, saying that he thought it should have been tougher.

As this scandal heats up, Toomey should lead the charge to blow it open. To Hannity's credit, after reading the statement from Toomey's office (below the video), he was right to push Toomey on it. At this point, I think Toomey did fine in his appearance. As long as the media continues to run with the story, he can probably sit back a little but if it shows any sign of dying down, he needs to whip out the bellows and get it going again. As I wrote HERE, this scandal is much bigger than Toomey's personal aspirations.

HERE is Toomey's statement referred to by Hannity in the above interview.
For Immediate Release—May 24, 2010

Contact: Nachama Soloveichik • Communications Director • 484.809.7994 • 646.528.1029

Allentown, PA – U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey issued the following statement today about allegations that the White House offered Rep. Joe Sestak a job in exchange for exiting the U.S. Senate race:

“From day one, our campaign has been focused on the critical issues facing Pennsylvania, like jobs, the economy, and a federal government that’s on an out-of-control spending spree. That’s where our focus will remain. To that end, Congressman Joe Sestak’s support for the policies that are bankrupting our country and killing jobs is of much greater concern to me than whatever deal-making was done between him and the White House.

“Having said that, by virtue of the nonstop inquiries coming into our campaign from members of the media, we are compelled to respond to what is now being commonly referred to as ‘job-gate.’ My response is simply this: Congressman Sestak should tell the public everything he knows about the job he was offered, and who offered it. To do otherwise will only continue to raise questions and continue to be a needless distraction in this campaign. Joe and I disagree on many important issues, from health care, to bailouts, to the unprecedented debt being racked up in Washington. That’s what our campaign should be about, rather than these other matters. Joe can clear that all away by simply disclosing all the facts that he knows, and I urge him to do that.”
Hannity addressed that statement perfectly with Toomey. He lightly pressed him and then got him to publicly admit this is a big deal. Toomey did a very decent job of answering the questions but he needs to be prepared to help drive this scandal, not because it will help him defeat Sestak but because it's the right thing for him to do for his country.
