Obama supporters force Rush out of NFL.
(Page 2 of 4)
Isn’t that lovely.
Buckle in. America’s beloved NFL appears to be a living lie.
Let’s focus on Mr. Smith.
DeMaurice Smith is, hard to believe, a hard core cheerleader for Team Obama. Specifically, Smith gave $3,300 to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign between 2007 and 2008. according to the Federal Elections Commission. When he wasn’t busy giving money to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Party of Virginia, the re-election campaign of the District of Columbia’s Democratic U.S. House non-voting delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, Indiana’s Democratic Senator Evan Bayh and, in the way back, the presidential campaign of Democrat Senator John Kerry.
That would be seven contributions total, all to liberal or left-wing Democrats.
You think there might be just the teensiest bit of conflict of interest in Mr. Smith’s straight-faced insistence that he is all about dealing in unity, cheering, transcending, overcoming division and hatred?
What a laugh.
So what does Mr. Smith do in his real life when he isn’t busy juggling the massive conflict of interest that is using the façade of football to zap one of the leading opponents of Mr. Obama, the man to whom Smith has channeled $3,300? Why…wait for it….Smith is a lobbyist on the payroll of the DC lobbying powerhouse Patton Boggs and Blow.
How do we know this? Because Patton, in the wonderfully condescending way that liberal Democrats have with the blacks on their short-leashed intellectual plantation, let the world know how proud they were not of Mr. Smith’s legal and lobbying skills. No, they let the world know how proud they were that their House Black Lobbyist got an award.
Here’s the beginning of the announcement from Patton:
Patton Boggs LLP Partner DeMaurice Smith Named One of “The Top Fifteen Black White-Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys” by Corporate Crime Reporter
August 08, 2007
Washington, D.C., August 8,—Patton Boggs LLP congratulates DeMaurice Smith on being named one of “The Top Fifteen Black White-Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys” by Corporate Crime Reporter newspaper. Mr. Smith was selected based a survey of white-collar criminal defense attorneys. Corporate Crime Reporter has been published for over 20 years. Subscribers include: federal and state prosecutors, major white-collar and corporate crime defense law firms, trial lawyers, major corporations, law school libraries, and large media outlets.
Got that? Mr. Smith is not one of the “top fifteen white-collar criminal defense attorneys.” Nooooooooooooooo. In the style of the Jim Crow system these people invented and cherish to this day as racial quotas and identity politics, Mr. Smith is one of the top fifteen black white collar criminal defense attorneys. Hey, no racial stuff there, right?
This is shameful.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
