OMARI TAHIR'S RESPONSE
In June, I wrote a blog titled "STERLING-SILVER: THE TARNISH GETS WORSE", in which I brought readers up to date on the Donald Sterling/NBA saga.
At that point, former Microsoft biggie Steve Ballmer had offered $2 billion for Sterling's team, the San Diego Clippers - about quadruple the amount any other NBA team had ever sold for.
Initially, it was reported, Sterling agreed to drop his lawsuit against the NBA and go through with the sale (even he could use an extra $1.5 bill, I suppose) - but Sterling claimed the terms were not what he thought them to be, backed out, and announced the lawsuit was still on. Yesterday he filed additional suits against his wife, the NBA and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
The blog ended this way:
image, of course is forever tarnished. His reputation, at least
regarding his attitude toward Black people in general, is
the NBA - so far - is not in the same boat as sterling.
Its massive history of looking the other way at racist, sexist and
homophobic comments at every level - players, coachers, owners - is
largely unknown to the general public.
what happens if sterling makes good on his threat - i.e. he goes to
court and airs the NBA's mountain of dirty linen?
you think he's
tarnished, wait until you see what happens to the NBA.
sit tight, and wait for the next chapter in this pulp non-fiction
saga. I guarantee you'll need plenty more sterling-Silver
The reason I bring this up is that, about a week after posting the blog -- thus days after I checked to see if anyone had commented about it - an extensive broadside about sterling, Ballmer, the NBA, the country, and life in general, was posted by Omari Tahir.
Mr. Tahir, also known as Omari Tahir-Garrett, is a very well-known Black activist in Seattle who, last year ran for Mayor of the city.
My purpose is not to editorialize on Mr. Tahir or what he has to say. It is to post his views...which, if I had seen earlier, I would have put up as a separate blog at that time. I apologize for missing it.
Here, uncensored in any way, is Mr. Tahir's entire comment. Make of it what you will:
Tahir AFRICAN AMERICAN ATHLETES "JUST SAY NO" TO NBA
CIRCUS AND FORM OTHER MULTI0-ETHNIC PRO BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL AND
BASEBALL LEAGUES AND THEN MERGE WITH EXISTING NBA, NFL AND MLB?????
WE ALREADY FORMED "BLACK CHURCHES" FOR SAME REASONS????
BILL GATES, PAUL ALLEN AND STEVE BALLMER, are all cut from the same
cloth!!! I was arguing with Mary Gates, (Bill Gates mother) when she
was on the Board of Regents at the University of Washington about
divesting from businesses doing business with APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA?
When I sued the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES about their neo-colonial take
over and subversion of positive youth activities, Bill Gates dad
(Bill Gates Sr.) turned up as their Lawyer. The BILL AND MELINDA
GATES FOUNDATION, provided the seed money for the 36 CONDOS AND FAKE
"NORTHWEST AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM" (NAAM). YES, "NAAM
IS A SCAM". the URBAN LEAGUE LEECHES then went bust with their
neo-colonial take over of the "SMALL BUSINESS /CONTRACTOR'S
RESOURCE CENTER". So this is my response to the DONALD STERLING
CLIPPERS PLANTATION EXPOSURE AND BILL GATES AND PAUL ALLEN'S MICRSOFT
PARTNER STEVE BALLMERS PURCHASE OF THE LA CLIPPER PLANTATION FOR 2
BILLION DOLLARS($ 2,OOO,OOO,OOO)? FYI ARE WE CRAZZZZZZY????? STEVE
BALLMER'S 2 BILLION COULD END ALL HOMELESSNESS IN SEATTLE? WHAT IS
MORE IMPORTANT ANOTHER WHITE PLANTATION OWNER WITH "BLACK
LABOR"?? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STERLINGS, STEVEN
BALLMER OR BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON OWNING THE LA CLIPPERS
PLANTATION??? IF AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE 80% OF THE NBA AND 99% OF TOP
BASKETBALL PLAYERS, WHY ARE NO BASKETBALL TALENT WHITES THE TEAM /
PLANTATION OWNERS? YES ECONOMIC APARTHEID / PLANTATION POLITICS
(HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS) IS STILL OPERATIVE!!!!! THE STRUGGLE
CONTINUES, Omari Tahir FYI MR..PRESIDENT MR STERLING IS NOT
"IGNORANT". HE IS TRUTHFUL AND HONEST ABOUT THE PAST AND
PRESENT US POLITICAL ECONOMIC SOCIAL SYSTEM AND MOST IMPORTANT PAST
AND PRESENT "US WHITE SUPREMACY"/ BLACK LABOR CULTURE!!
"THE KING HAS NO CLOTHES" Mr. Sterling is a typical
"EUROPEAN SETTLER COLONIAL BUSINESS MAN" operating on the
land PIRATED FROM THE NATIVE PEOPLE AND DEVELOPED BY AFRICAN:"SLAVE
LABOR" THROUGH GENOCIDAL TERRORISM !!!! LIKE HIS FELLOW EURO
DESCENDANT BANKERS, MOVIE EXECUTIVES. INDUSTRIALISTS, POLITICIANS,
CATHOLIC, PROTESTANT, EVANGELICAL AND OTHER "WHITE JESUS"
RELIGIOUS LEADERS. The "WHITE SUPREMACY COURT" has ruled in
the DRED SCOTT CASE THAT "A BLACK MAN HAS NO RIGHTS A WHITE MAN
IS BOUND TO RESPECT"? What is new???? "THE MORE THINGS
CHANGE THE MORE THEY REMAIN THE SAME"??? IT IS TIME THE AFRICAN
AMERICAN BASKETBALL AND FOOTBALL PLAYERS STOP "PLAYING AS
VICTIMS",,,, FORM AND CONTROL THEIR OWN MULTI- ETHNIC LEAGUES
AND THEN MERGE WITH THE NBA AND NFL!!!!! PLANTATIONS SHOULD HAVE MORE
THAN JUST "WHITE" OWNERS IN 2014 FORWARD OR THE BLACK
HORSES DON'T RUN!!!!................. TALENT EQUALS CONTROL.???????

"BRIDGEGATE" VS."INVESTIGATE": A COMPARISON IN THE MAKING
Last year, several lanes on the George Washington Bridge were closed for four days, supposedly for some kind of traffic study. In reality, that study apparently did not exist: instead, the closings almost certainly were an act of political vindictiveness against the (Democrat) Mayor of Fort Lee. This quickly came to be known as "Bridgegate".
No one disuptes that the orders to close those lanes came from people in Governor Christie's office. And it was assumed - certainly by Christie opponents but also, I would think, by many Christie supporters as well - that Christie himself ordered the lane closings.
Governor Christie denied having anything to do with the closings, and immediately fired several people involved in the incident. Though great suspicion remains, to this day no evidence has surfaced linking Christie to the closings (and, God knows, it has been looked for in every way imaginable.)
This single incident - a few lanes closed for four days - created a media frenzy like nothing we have seen since Watergate and Iran Contra. Non-stop coverage every day. Countless articles, features, editorials, panel discussions, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. We could not put on our TV or radio or read a newspaper or go on line without learning "the latest about Bridgegate" - even when there was no "latest" to report.
Why am I rehashing this now? Because today, the New York Times - and all credit due them for it - has published a Page 1 story about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's office stopping an investigation in its tracks, because the investigation might wind up embarrassing Mr. Cuomo politically. I am calling it "InvestiGate".
is the beginning of the article:
Albany rocked by a seemingly endless barrage of scandals and arrests,
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo set up a
high-powered commission last summer to root out corruption in
state politics. It was barely two months old when its investigators,
hunting for violations of campaign-finance laws, issued a subpoena to
a media-buying firm that had placed millions of dollars' worth of
advertisements for the New York State Democratic Party.
investigators did not realize that the firm, Buying Time, also
counted Mr. Cuomo among its clients, having bought the airtime for
his campaign when he ran for governor in 2010.
that the subpoena had been served quickly reached Mr. Cuomo's most
senior aide, Lawrence S. Schwartz.
He called one of the commission's three co-chairs, William J.
Fitzpatrick, the district attorney in Syracuse.
is wrong," Mr. Schwartz said, according to Mr. Fitzpatrick, whose
account was corroborated by three other people told about the call at
the time. He said the firm worked for the governor, and issued a
subpoena was swiftly withdrawn. The panel's chief investigator
explained why in an email to the two other co-chairs later that
apparently produced ads for the governor," she wrote.
pulled-back subpoena was the most flagrant example of how the
commission, established with great ceremony by Mr. Cuomo in July
2013, was hobbled almost from the outset by demands from the
Did "Investi-Gate" really happen? Well, the New York Times is a strong supporter of Governor Cuomo, so it would be hard to fathom it putting out a piece like this without being certain it was true.
So, where are we?
As it now stands, at least one key person Governor Cuomo's office has made sure the investigation was "hobbled" - maybe others. And, though no evidence is presented, there clearly is a possibility that Mr. Cuomo himself was involved.
Does "InvestiGate" look eerily like "Bridgegate" - except for the fact that the accusations against the Cuomo people are far, far more serious than a couple of lane closings on a bridge? I's say so - how about you?
Now comes the fun part. Let's see how much coverage "InvestiGate" gets. Or do you think you already know?
I will be blogging about the extent of "InvestiGate" coverage over the next several days.

LEFT WING "CIVILITY" (CONT.)
It has been a while since I posted an installment of this series. Not because there wasn't plenty to write about, but because too many more important issues were higher up on the food chain.
This latest example, however, cannot go unreported.
"True Blood" is an HBO series about vampires (as an unrelated aside, can someone please explain to me what the re-emergence of fascination with vampires is all about? Did someone pull the wooden stake from Bela Lugosi's heart?).
Without commenting on overall quality of the series, let me post this excerpt from an article at breitbart.com, about what is in one of the episodes - the only revision being that, unlike breitbart I will not censor the language:
HBO's Award winning "True Blood" a popular vampire drama
has had a long-running narrative with the bad guys cast as southern
conservative politicians, last night's episode took it a step
farther, calling Ted Cruz supporters assholes and offensively
referring to conservative woman in eveningware as "republicunts"
two of the main characters, vampires Eric Northman and Pam De
Beaufort, are planning to crash a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted
Cruz (R-TX) held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas
they are warned "They only let in assholes."
dressing for the event in cowboy hats and Western evening attire Pam
De Beaufort says "Oh my God I'm a republicunt"
And there's more.
In addition to what you just read, the producers of "True Blood" actually contacted Sarah Palin and offered her a cameo role in the episode - presumably to provide an association with her and "republicunts". Ms. Palin was smart enough to decline.
Suppose this were a drama that regularly vilified the left. Suppose two of the characters intended to crash a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and were told "They only let in assholes". Suppose a female character dressed in clothes laden with buttons supporting Obama/protesting deportation of illegal aliens and said "Oh my God I'm a democunt". Suppose the producers tried to sucker Ms. Clinton into a cameo role on the episode. Do you think there would be protests? Do you think the so-called "women's groups" would go after them?
Well, don't expect any of that here. After all, we're talking about insults to the right, not the left, which makes them ok. And the gutter language about women is aimed at Republican women, so that's ok too, because they don't count. No need for women's groups to get upset over a woman being characterized with one of the most offensive words used to describe her genitalia. Republican women aren't really women, are they?
There you have it, folks. Left wing "civility" at its finest.
That's worth keeping in mind the next time you see a protest from one or another of these hypocritical frauds.

OBAMACARE - THE LATEST POLL
Here, from (mostly ObamaCare-supporting) CNN, are its latest poll data...and how those data compare to the previous two waves.
-In December, when the horrific web site rollout was all over the news: 35% favored ObamaCare, 62% opposed it;
-In March, when the web site rollout was no longer in the news, but there were issues regarding how many enrollees there would be: 39% favored, 55% opposed;
-Now, after four months of largely positive media coverage: 40% favor, 57% oppose.
Bottom line: if these data are accurate, they show that, even with positive media coverage, the country does not want this unworkable monstrosity. Just like virtually every other poll from every other source has for years.
As Abe Lincoln famously said, you can't fool all the people all the time.

IN CASE THE PREVIOUS BLOG DIDN'T CONVINCE YOU....
Excerpted from Ido Ben-Porat and Ari Soffer's article at Israel National News. Please pay special attention to the paragraph I've put in bold print:
IDF has struck a terrorist position in Gaza's Al Wafa hospital,
illustrating the highly sensitive and illegal use of civilian targets
shields by Hamas and other Gazan terrorist groups.
sources say that the controversial decision to attack the position
was taken after several days in which ground forces came under heavy
fire from gunmen positioned inside the hospital grounds. The fire
reportedly included both light weaponry and heavy anti-tank missiles
directed towards IDF armored vehicles.
hospital premises were being used as war rooms and command centers by
the terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad," said an IDF
military added that it had repeatedly warned international agencies
and the Palestinian head of the hospital directly about the gunfire
from the hospital, as well as several other senior Palestinian
officials - but to no avail. Instead, in the past several hours the
intensity of the attacks has only increased, posing a real and
imminent danger to the lives of soldiers operating in the area,
forcing the IDF to respond with fire of its own.
The reason for that emboldened paragraph is to get past the fact - and it is one - that, in war, many claims are made which turn out to be false; nothing but propaganda.
But in this case, Israel - which was within its rights to take out that position any time it cared to - warned international (and supposedly neutral) entities about it, along with the head of the hospital. Israel acted only after those warnings were ignored.
Which, therefore, makes Israel a bunch of murdering subhumans, right? After all, they hit a hospital, didn't they?
Expect to see that story line in the media, folks. It's what a lot of them like to do.

ANOTHER SCHOOL/MISSILE STORAGE CENTER
This blog is written for anyone who might believe that when the United Nations Relief Works Administration (UNRWA) - the pro-Palestinian Arab entity assigned by that Useless, Neutered organization to oversee Gaza - found 20 missiles stored in a school, it was an amazing coincidence: the UNRWA happened upon the one and only such missile storage facility in an area which would put civilians in mortal jeopardy.
Excerpted from the UNRWA's own web page:
in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA
discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As
soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from
the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of
rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that
currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.
strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible
for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises
under international law.
Agency immediately informed the relevant parties and is pursuing all
possible measures for the removal of the objects in order to preserve
the safety and security of the school. UNRWA will launch a
comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this
has reinforced and continues to implement its robust procedures to
maintain the neutrality of all its premises, including a strict
no-weapons policy and regular inspections of its installations, to
ensure they are only used for humanitarian purposes.
civilians in Gaza rely on UNRWA to provide humanitarian assistance
and shelter. At all times, and especially during escalations of
violence, the sanctity and integrity of UN installations must be
Let's think about this:
-A vacant school.....situated between two operating schools, attended by a total of 3,000 schoolchildren. What a wonderful place to hide missiles! It guarantees that if Israel takes out those missiles there will be plenty of dead civilians for the media to report about - which, as history shows over and over again, suits hamas just fine;
-The UNRWA strongly condemns "the group or groups responsible", without naming hamas? Who the eff does the UNRWA think are responsible? The IDF? The Tea Party? Waldo? Even when these absolute frauds find missiles placed in the schools it runs, thus directly endangering the lives of every child and teacher, it is too cowardly to blame the only people who could have placed them there;
-The so-called "investigation" will go nowhere and accuse no one, because...
-...the UNRWA is a willing partner of hamas. It runs those schools - in which children are taught that Jews are the descendants of apes and pigs, that Israel does not exist, it can never exist in any way, size or form, it is their religious duty to engage in jihad, and the greatest glory they can achieve is to die killing Jews. If the UNRWA gave a damn about what hamas is doing - and has been doing ever since taking over Gaza - it would have called a halt to this indoctrination of hatred and killing a long time ago;
-It is a mockery for the UNRWA to use the words "sanctity" and "integrity". They directly contradict what happens in Gaza's UN installations, right under their noses - which makes the organization hamas' willing accmplice.
So let the UNRWA whine and pout and posture about the missiles hamas places precisely where their destruction will kill innocent civilians. And let them pretend not to know who put them there.
The only people who believe its BS are the people whose hatred of Israel and/or Jews (which virtually always go hand in hand) prevents them from seeing what is in front of their eyes.

A QUESTION FOR THE UN
A question for the UN, which presumably exists to keep world peace:
With over 160,000 Syrians dead so far (and counting), with thousands of Nigerians - mostly Christian - killed at the hands of boko haram, with Christianity systematically being decimated by ISIS terrorists in Iraq, with Libya a lawless Islamic terrorist wasteland, with hundreds and thousands of innocents slaughtered by pro-Russian separatists - not to mention Russian nationals - in the Ukraine...
....why is it that Israel defending itself from an acknowledged terrorist organization seems to be the only thing you want to talk about?
I would love an answer. But there won't be one.

IS ISRAEL HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD?
Here is your answer, from Israeli activist Boaz Gabriel Canhoto...without even one more word from me, because it isn't needed:
|Hopelessly Partisan @ 14:05 PM
THE QUOTE OF THE DAY
Today's quote comes to us from zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser under President Jimmy Carter and father of "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski. During his time in the Carter administration, brzezinski made it more than clear that he hated Israel's guts - which certainly put him in good stead with Carter, who has always shared his views.
And just in case anyone might think that now, at age 86, those views might have modulated in any way, here is what brzezinski said on his daughter's show this morning after being asked by Mike Barnicle, in a sarcastic play on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying "man's got to do what a man's got do" to defend his country, if there were any middle east leaders "man enough to sit down and cut a cease-fire deal" :
think there are some
politicians in Israel who are men enough and women enough to do that.
I don't include Prime Minister Netanyahu in that category.
I think Madeleine (NOTE: the reference is to Madeleine Albright, who was born Jewish but intentionally hid this fact all her life until she was 'outed') put it extremely well. The issue is larger than
just Gaza. The issue is peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
"The peace, if there were one, would resolve in a large measure of the
problem in Gaza. The fact is that honest, dedicated efforts to
produce that peace by our secretary of state, by the President of the
United States, by previous leaders of the United States, previous
secretaries of state of the United States like Madeleine, for
example, have made that effort.
It's been scuttled by Mr. Netanyahu. That's the fact of the matter.
can you have peace if at the same time someone is incorporating the
territory that is at issue, is building on it, is indicating that
most of the territory will be part of Israel and that the
Palestinians can be a second-class minority and essentially a
militant Israeli state? Most Israelis don't support that. Most
Israelis are in favor of peace. The majority of the American-Jewish
community is in favor of peace. But the
ideologues, hard-liners, the ones that promulgate confrontation are
in charge, and that's what's so hard and so disgustingly
both Israelis and the Palestinians."
A few facts for zbigniew, which seem to have escaped his purview:
-hamas is a terrorist organization. You might want to check with the State Department on that;
-hamas is committed in writing to the obliteration of Israel, the death of all Jews in and out of Israel, and to the rejection of all peace deals without exception. Read the effing hamas charter, zbigniew, and see for yourself....if you can bear to deal with facts instead of mindless hatred;
-Benjamin Netanyahu cannot possibly "scuttle" a peace deal, because, as noted above, hamas - specifically, in writing - rejects any such deal before it is ever made. Again, read the hamas charter and see for yourself - specifically articles 11, 12 and 13. Even a hater like you cannot escape the clarity of what it says.
-You are dead, 100% wrong about Israel "incorporating the territory" of Gaza. Stop attacking Israel long enough to read a history book, zbigniew, and learn that the exact opposite is true: Israel gave Gaza to Palestinian Arabs in its entirety - every square inch of it - in 2005. This, to my knowledge, is the one and only time in world history a country voluntarily gave up contiguous land to its sworn enemy in an effort to secure peaceful co-existence. Israel's "reward" for its unprecedented gesture has been that, the one and only time Gazans had a chance to vote in free elections they put members of hamas in charge of most positions, hamas then took the rest of them by force, and Israel has been subjected to non-stop attacks from Gaza ever since - all of which you are perfectly happy to ignore;
-Benjamin Netanyahu made a decision to "promulgate confrontation" with Gaza only after literally thousands of rounds of mortars and other artillery were rained on Israel by hamas. That is not promulgating confrontation, that is reacting to confrontation. But, in your sick world, hamas' actions are not worthy of even being mentioned, let alone cited as a reason for Netanyahu's decisions.
I award zbigniew brzezinski Quote Of The Day honors, for reminding us that a hate-filled scumbag is a hate-filled scumbag, no matter how old he gets.
I'd love to hear how daughter Mika feels about this.....but the fact that she invited Daddy Disgustingest on the show to spew his bile probably has already given me my answer.

FOR ANYONE WHO THINKS HILLARY CLINTON IS A LOCK TO BECOME PRESIDENT....
...here, for your perusal, is the latest poll - this one evaluating her performance as Secretary of State - which was conducted by usually Clinton-friendly politico.com:
As you can see, 53% feel that Ms. Clinton did not do a good job as Secretary of State - 32% saying she did a "poor" job, versus only 14% saying she was "excellent".
Not very impressive, is it?
If those data are correct, it means that the country views her four years as Secretary of State in decidedly negative terms.
It can be argued that most people don't have the slightest idea what a Secretary of State does, thus are reacting from a position of ignorance. To them, I point out that this is the same position they will be reacting to in the voting booth.
It can also be argued that much of the negative sentiment is due to the ongoing Benghazi investigations....that if Republicans were not hot and heavy into pushing this scandal or non-scandal (depending on your point of view), her numbers would be higher. To them I point out that a) even if you are right, it still puts Ms. Clinton where she is, and b) this pretty clearly indicates people feel the Benghazi issue is a major one, because if they felt it was nothing with nothing, Benghazi would not have affected her numbers.
Assuming she even runs (which is still very much in doubt), Hillary Clinton is no lock for anything.
