UN panel race-shames America, demands reparations for blacks

September 28, 2016 By Thomas Lifson

The movement to get America out of the United Nations and into an alliance of democracies instead just got a big boost.  The United Nations is a vehicle for the some of the worst regimes on the planet to puff their chests and strut their stuff.  Ishaan Tharoor of the Washington Post writes:
The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.
This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations' Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization's High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.
"In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent," the report stated. "Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching."
This is serious leftist claptrap, right out of Soros-funded BLM.  Whites are guilty of having racial privilege and continue to oppress black people violently.  We owe.

J. Edgar Comey - Always a Government Deal

Cross dressing the Clinton email scandal. 

Why weren't search warrants served instead of immunity? m/r

James Comey’s Clinton Immunity

More questions about the FBI’s special handling of the email case.

Sept. 27, 2016 WSJ Opinion

FBI Director James Comey appears Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he’ll get another chance to explain his agency’s double standard regarding Hillary Clinton. His probe of the former Secretary of State’s private email server is looking more like a kid-glove exercise with each new revelation.
House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Friday disclosed that the FBI granted immunity to Mrs. Clinton’s top aides as part of its probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information. According to Mr. Chaffetz, this “limited” immunity was extended to former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and senior adviser Heather Samuelson, in order to get them to surrender their laptops, which they’d used to sort through Mrs. Clinton’s work-versus-personal emails.
Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico.

Why aren't the 'Moderators' selected from outside the TV media? And Why aren't there two moderators, left and right to check each other? If it's going to be a cage fight, balance the cage. m/r

Fact Checking: Why wasn't the In-the-Bag Moderator placed behind the Clinton Podium

Trump pulled off presidential: James Robbins

James S. Robbins 11:50 p.m. EDT September 26, 2016

Like Reagan in 1980, viewers saw a Trump who was better than the liberal talking points.

You can’t fact check leadership, and tonight Donald Trump showed himself a leader.
Fact-checking has never been an accepted role for debate moderators. Janet Brown, head of the Commission on Presidential Debates, said that a moderator should not “serve as the Encyclopedia Britannica.” And moderator Candy Crowley’s ill-advised intervention against Mitt Romney in 2012 showed why fact checking on the fly is a bad idea.

It was strange that the truth-challenged Clinton would want to make an issue of facts. But there was certainly no shortage of checking. Veteran debate moderator Bob Schieffer said that “the chief fact-checkers are the candidates,” and Clinton and Trump agreed, vigorously challenging each other over facts, policies and opinions. In addition, the social media hive-mind was scrutinizing every word in real time. Anyone who needed to track down a fact had the entire connected world at their disposal.

No ear mics allowed for debate moderators; But what about the candidates?

The presidential debate moderators will not be allowed to wear earpieces, according to published reports.
But what about the presidential candidates themselves?
A voter in Maryland wrote Federal Elections Commissioner Matthew Petersen on Sept. 8 seeking a "clear response" to that question.
