Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on August 17, 2014 by Allahpundit

War in Ukraine, war in Iraq, a looming executive power grab on immigration, and a 2016 GOP contender indicted for nakedly political reasons: There’s a lot on the ol’ news plate this Sunday morning but the main course, of course, is Ferguson. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is the lead guest on “Meet the Press” and “State of the Union,” and I’m going to go ahead and guess that he booked those appearances on Friday. He probably thought today was going to be a belated victory lap after he ordered the Highway Patrol to take the lead in crowd control on Thursday and the protests remained peaceful that night. Oops: Friday night brought more looting. Now he’s back on the hot seat.

If you’re not up for watching op-ed pagers sitting around the round table and navel-gazing about race in America, Rick Perry will be on “Fox News Sunday” to answer for his crime of thinking that someone who did time on a DUI charge probably shouldn’t be serving as DA. How’s the other side of that argument working out for Democrats thus far? Not so well. The full line-up is at Politico.

Our media today is so bereft of intellectual integrity. They deserve a huge portion of blame for our current state of affairs.

Syzygy on August 17, 2014 at 8:14 AM

Poor Capt Johnson
he really thinks he can handle the protesters

7more arrests and one more shooting

All hail Capt Johnson

The Fox viewers dont need convincing by Gov Perry. Guess MTP couldnt humble themselves to invite Rick– might expose themselves and their Dem partners how asinine these charges really are.

The talking heads keep implying that part of the problem is the lack.of diversity on the force

How many blacks actually applied to Bevin the force

Then, there’s this:

Illegal Immigrants Kill Border Patrol Agent, Family And Media Denied Arraignment Access

http://dailycaller.com/2014/08/05/illegal-immigrants-kill-border-patrol-agent-family-and-media-denied-arraignment-access/

“Gustavo Tijernia, 30, and Ismael Hernandez, 40, were arrested Monday when they confessed to killing off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent Javier Vega Jr., 36.”

Pres. Obama hasn’t taken taken the time to publicly comment on the death of this agent. The barbarians aren’t rioting in the streets over the death of this agent. The race pimps aren’t demanding justice for the death of this agent. The media aren’t focused 24/7 on this outrage.

Our southern border is being invaded. Wake up, America.

locomotivebreath1901 on August 17, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Aqua nut was whining about some woman being shot dead for pointing a drill at a cop yesterday afternoon. Putting aside the fact, that she was probably looting, there is no record of anything like that happening. There was somebody shot after midnight but it appears to have been by a fellow looter.

davidk on August 17, 2014 at 8:35 AM

Welcome to the DNC Media Propaganda Hour, kids! Join the DNC Media for all of the (lefty) opinions that Americans need to hear as we survey the general meltdown of America under O’Bozo – The First Clown President.

This week: St. Louis in flames, more of the border invasion and the Democrats’ promotion of their new open borders strategy — plus more race politics.

Let’s have a gander:

“Meet the Press” on NBC
• Jay Nixon – Liberal
• John Lewis – Kook Left Liberal Race Victim
• Mike Turner – RINO’s RINO
• Stephanie Rawlings-Blake – Kook Left Liberal
• Moderator: Liberal Partisan Democrat

Kooks and racists, with a token RINO.

“Face the Nation” on CBS
• Cornell William Brooks – Liberal Race Victim
• Mike Rogers – RINO
• Moderator: Liberal Partisan Democrat

O for 2 if you’re looking for a conservative.

“This Week” on ABC
• Adam Kinzinger – RINO
• Tulsi Gabbard – Liberal
• Moderator: Liberal Partisan Democrat

0 for 3.

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Rick Perry – Conservative, under indictment – Daily Double!
• Ron Johnson – Conservative!
• Eliot Engel – Kook Left Liberal
• Moderator: Moderate

Hooray for Fox!

“State of the Union” on CNN
• Nixon – Liberal
• Lacy Clay – Liberal
• Peter King – RINO Clown
• Moderator: Liberal Partisan Democrat

CNN wallowing in their own filth.

“Newsmakers” on C-SPAN
• Stephanie Schriock – Kook Left Liberal

Of course.

Bloomberg News
• Al Hunt arrested for looting in Ferguson…back next week.

“Al Punto” on Racist Univision
• Dick Durbin – Kook Left Liberal
• Ileana Ros-Lehtinen – RINO
• Jorge Castañeda – Socialist
• Moderator: Liberal Partisan Democrat Socialist

Garbage time.

Summary: Another appalling week, with the GOP-RINO establishment misrepresenting conservatives across the board. Fox is the only relevant show again this week. Pathetic. Instead, join a Hotair thread about cops, fascism, Ferguson, and racist ghetto thugs, and flame each other all day.

Good times.

I heard someone on TV yesterday who said that the High School graduation rate in the St. Louis area is only about 64%. A HS Diploma is a minimum requirement to apply, so that cuts down on eligible candidates from the get go.

They are calling it civil unrest, because the standard practice, is to shoot looter on sight, and since these riot’s are supposedly because the police shot a unarmed black man, it would look really bad if the police then shot 30 more for looting.

oscarwilde on August 17, 2014 at 9:32 AM

I think Eliot Engel (D-NY) ought to man up and take a drink of water… unless he thinks he is going to be criticized for it. On the other hand, he is saying all the right things about ISIS and what our actions about them ought to be.

Progressive definition;

Peaceful protest rally; They beat up anyone they think isn’t on their side, break windows, set fire to dumpsters, and generally act like the nits in “Return of the Archons” from ST; TOS. (“Festival! FESTIVAL!!“)

Civil disobedience; They also loot shops and burn them to the ground.

Civil unrest; They also murder the shopkeepers.

Mob rule; Police stop any or all of the above. AKA “Police brutality”.

Shoot till dead….re-load…shoot some more…punks, more important, criminals who will commit many future crimes. Better yet, wait till the Black Pansies join the fray, then unload…get rid of their asses too. My take. Police could eliminate ALOT of future crime right now.

Everyone needs to stop worrying about how they look and do the right thing which is what the taxpayers are paying them for. They have a perfect right to shoot criminals. Hit them hard and the survivors will crawl back under their rocks and life will go on. They take advantage of current wimpiness. Stand up to the bullies.

“Fox News Sunday” on Fox
• Rick Perry – Conservative, under indictment – Daily Double!

This is what boggles my mind. Why does Fox News feel it has to give airtime to a kook leftist just to appear “fair and balanced” when they could probably find a couple of Democrats or liberals who aren’t as nutty as Eliot Engel? It’s not as if the rest of the media doesn’t already counterbalance all of Fox’s conservative guests.

Aizen on August 17, 2014 at 9:56 AM

Is there any way that they can make this Ferguson fiasco political? I don’t think Gov. Nixon has handled any of this very well, you would think that he might keep a lower profile.

Cindy Munford on August 17, 2014 at 9:57 AM

There is a shamefully large segment of the black populace which is actively engaged in a campaign of forced ignorance and conspiratorial craziness. There is a tiny sliver of white-crazy liberals who aid and abet. But most shocking, as we have long noted here — the dominant DNC Media actively feeds this intentional stupidity and rarely calls out the leaders for their destructive actions.

Talk about sick.

Asked and answered … “fair and balanced”.

You can’t really put out a one-sided news show and claim you’re balancing the rest of the one-sided (lefty) media. Fox is viewed by the kooks as a one-sided show, even with an Eliot Engel on board.

Jaibones on August 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Jaibones on August 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM

I call it “needlessly pandering.” Liberals don’t watch Fox News to see their own opinions validated anyway, they turn to MS-LSD, CNN, or any of the alphabet networks.

Jaibones on August 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Well, Fox shouldn’t really care. Their ratings speak for themselves. Besides, I look at it as one conservative balancing out a kook leftist. Perry was only interviewed because of the indictment “scandal” so it wasn’t like Fox News Sunday had him on to purely discuss policy matters.

Aizen on August 17, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Well, Fox shouldn’t really care.

Jaibones on August 17, 2014 at 9:57 AM

All of the above agree on three things;

1. Western Civilization is irredeemably evil.

2. The only good things it had ever produced are themselves.

3. Ipso facto, they are on a “holy mission” to destroy (1) so that Utopia can be born, with them running it.

It’s not “stupidity” to them. In their lexicon, it’s called “direct action“.

And all of the above are on the same page. Even the functional illiterates; they have the rest to tell them why it’s all cool, “justified”, and “necessary”, in addition to being remunerative, fun, and semi-orgasmic.

The simple brutal truth is… It’s all about money. This is something I learned after seeing the lines, 6 persons deep and stretching back miles, at the welfare office right after the Rodney King riots.

First in line will be Mo. Senators, followed by Ferguson’s congresscritters. They’ll be demanding billions of dollars in emergency Federal Aid.

Next will be the Mayor and City Council of Ferguson, demanding their cut.

Then will be the Lawyer’s, lining up with their lawsuit’s demanding their cut.

Then it will be the race baiting poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson.

And finally every welfare Queen and Pimp in Ferguson lining up at the welfare Office for their brand new tripled in amount new welfare claim.

Some of the creepiest of that crowd use the Marxist brand to get at the money, and these pathetic little nitwits with their pants around their knees hollering about racism — they are the pawns of the left.

Angry, uneducated, lazy, aimless, drugged up, immoral punks — the end product of liberalism.
