Jesse Jackson temporarily waiving his position on ‘Stand Your Ground’?

On Monday in Tallahassee, Jesse Jackson and others will march for the repeal of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. Jackson has said that such a law makes Florida an “apartheid state” or something.

Now couple Jackson’s demand for the end of “Stand Your Ground” with this:

Alexander was sentenced to 20 years for aggravated assault and tried to invoke Stand Your Ground, but was denied. A judge recently ordered a new trial. Maybe she’ll be allowed to use Stand Your Ground at the new trial — unless Jackson & company manage to have it repealed before then.

’12 Years a Slave’ such a good movie at least 2 Oscar voters chose it as ‘Best Picture’ without seeing it

This probably happens a lot more than ever gets reported:

All the same, two Oscar voters privately admitted that they didn’t see “12 Years a Slave,” thinking it would be upsetting. But they said they voted for it anyway because, given the film’s social relevance, they felt obligated to do so.

Hopping on a pop culture bandwagon just because everybody else was doing so in spite of personally knowing nothing about it? Why does that sound so familiar?

Obama skips national security meeting on Russia invasion of Ukraine and it’s not even golfing weather

Maybe he was busy presiding over another DNC happy hour.

Via PJ Media:

President Obama had no public events on his schedule today, yet skipped a meeting of his national security team at the White House today as they huddled over the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Seen leaving the meeting at the White House were Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, and CIA Director John Brennan.

Vice President Joe Biden reportedly joined the meeting via videoconference, while Obama was briefed later by National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

In defense of Obama, maybe he thought it was a waste of his time to go to a security meeting about a country that’s no longer a threat:

Obama did however speak with Putin by phone yesterday. Probably just to mock Mitt Romney for thinking Russia still posed a threat.

Obama calls for ‘Year of Action’: Bill Clinton runs with it

This past week, President Obama doubled down on his call for a “Year of Action,” and Bill Clinton is of course more than happy to help:

clintonhookers

Slick Willie probably had no clue … but the women Bill posed with at an L.A. charity event Thursday night are two star hookers at the famed Nevada Bunny Ranch brothel.

The brunette goes by Ava Adora and the blonde goes by Barbie Girl. According to her bio on the BR website, the blonde is very flexible and specializes in de-virginizing. The brunette “knows how to please a variety of both men and women.”

Bubba “probably had no clue” who they were? Ha! Uh huh. Just like he had no clue who these women were in 2012?

There goes the “Father of the Year.”

Russia invading Ukraine; Obama/Biden say ‘Let’s Move!’

Thousands of Russian troops have reportedly already entered Crimea region of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, at the White House:

Also, shortly after Obama spoke yesterday and told Russia they will pay a price if they send troops into Ukraine (“if”?), Obama declared “happy hour” (I kid you not):

Sleep well, America.

Update:

Russian parliament just gave Putin unanimous permission to do what he was already doing anyway.
