Jules Manson, Failed Tea Party Candidate, Calls For Assassination Of Obama, First Daughters

I wrote about this a few days ago.  At that time, the two sources that I got the article from had deleted the article without explanation. I decided to do the same but I did include an explanation.

Now I see that The Huffington Post has picked it up.  I believe HuffPo to be a reliable source and therefore I’ve decided to add their version of events in this post.

Jules Manson, a failed Tea Party candidate for local office in California, recently called for the assassination of President Obama and his daughters in a racial epithet-ridden Facebook screed.

The post, originally about his opposition to the recent passage of the controversial National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a measure allowing the indefinite detention of suspected foreign terrorists, referred to the president as a “monkey.” Then it got much worse.

“Assassinate the f—– n—– and his monkey children,” Manson commented on his own post, according to a screen shot uploaded by Facebook group “Americans Against the Tea Party” and relayed by Your Black Politics blog.

The post has since been scrubbed from his Facebook profile, replaced with an explanation that the comments were “careless, emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance.”

Manson, an avid Ron Paul supporter and libertarian, also writes that he has since been visited by the Secret Service, with whom he says he cooperated fully as he “was hiding nothing.”

According to the New York Daily News, Manson, who lost his 2011 bid for a City Council seat in Carson, Calif. with only 4 percent of the vote, has also posted pictures of Obama dressed as Hitler from his Facebook account.

In a post listed since the latest flare-up, Manson derisively announces a 2012 run for California’s 28th State Senate district as a Democrat.

“I intend on representing the Democratic Party with due dignity, and loyalty for my campaign contributors which will happen to be public-sector labor unions and other collective bargaining institutions that help keep the poor man down and dependent on government,” he writes. “I will also strongly advocate for the raising of taxes to meet the growing unsustainable demand for pensions and compensation packages for state workers despite California being the second highest taxed state in the union.”

The Daily News reports that it was unable to reach Manson at the phone number listed for his residence in a Carson trailer park.

Super Bowl to stream live online for the first time ever

This has to be good news for folks who want to see the live play by play action but had to work or had some other pressing matters that took them away from the TV.

You see, if it’s on the internet, then it’ll probably be streamed via the carriers’ sports networks to one’s smart phone as well as iPads and similar devices.  Verizon has already announced participation.  This is a win win situation for all football fans.

The Washington Post Social Reader

For those who wish they could watch the Super Bowl from their phone, your wish is granted — for the first time ever, the big game will be available live online and on certain mobile devices, in addition to television.

NBC airs the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 from Indianapolis, and will also stream the game on NFL.com and NBCSports.com. Verizon users will be able to watch via NFL Mobile, NBC added in its announcement on Monday.

It’s nothing too new for NBC, though. The network has been streaming its Sunday night football games for several years, and usually average about 200,000-300,000 streams, according to the Associated Press, with around 21 million watching on TV. Last year’s Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl clocked 111 million viewers.

Chris Christie Confronts Mika Brzezinski: ‘You’re Diving Deeply Into The Obama Tank’ (VIDEO)

 

The Huffington Post

Chris Christie accused Mika Brzezinski of blindly siding with President Obama time after time, in a friendly confrontation on Tuesday’s “Morning Joe.

“The New Jersey governor finally answered the call to appear on the morning program. Earlier in the month, he had texted co-host Joe Scarborough during the show to complain about the program’s roster of liberal guests. Brzezinski and Scarborough extended him an invitation to the show.

Christie was the first guest on Tuesday, and he kicked off the show with some humorous but real criticism of Brzezinski. “You’re veering,” he told her. “You used to be a voice of reason. You played it both ways.  Now, you’re diving deeply into the Obama tank. “Brzezinski let out a surprised “What!” and appeared very skeptical as he continued.

Christie, who said he watches the show every morning and is a huge fan of Brzezinski, implored her to “get to the middle of the road. “When she pressed him for specific examples, he said that she had been defining compromise as agreeing with everything Obama wanted. That set off a debate between the two about whether Democrats have compromised enough with Republicans.

They butted heads again over Brzezinski’s charge that Republicans were impeding President Obama.  But they both had a good sense of humor about the exchange. For his part, Joe Scarborough was delighted by Christie’s appearance and what he jokingly called Mika’s “intervention.”   Watch the segment in the clip above.
