How Happy Hillary Must Be, Winning Endorsement From Rapper Who Brags Of Killing Cops

Only a few weeks ago, Hillary Clinton was endorsed in her bid for president by a man who has made a fortune by exploiting women — one of the country’s biggest porn moguls — Larry Flynt. head of the Hustler empire. Western Journalism reported on the coverage by Bloomberg Politics of Flynt’s enthusiastic support for the former secretary of state — backing that Bloomberg reporter John Heilemann noted might actually prove detrimental to the Democrat’s leading 2016 contender for the White House.

“…no small number of Clinton’s ardent fans, and especially those who regard her as a feminist icon, may find it unsettling — or queasy-making — to have a man who has made a vast fortune in the skin trade squarely in her, and their, corner.”

Now, with a fresh string of Clinton endorsements by raunchy rappers, it will be interesting to see if these ready-for-Hillary music stars will help or hurt the Clinton campaign. According to CNN, rapper and actor 50 Cent has become the latest big name in hip-hop to sing Hillary’s praises.

“…the ‘In Da Club’ rapper has left no room for ambiguity, proclaiming that ‘It’s Hillary time’ during an interview with the Daily Beast.

The hip-hop star said that having been the First Lady during Bill Clinton’s presidency, makes it so that ‘Hillary was the president already once.’”

Taking a look at the 50 Cent song “In Da Club” mentioned in the CNN story, you’ll find that the lyrics contain numerous references to getting drunk, getting high, and having rough sex — plus, there are references to knives and guns and gays, not to mention numerous times the word “nigga” is tossed around. Does this kind of song represent the middle class values Hillary Clinton has so frequently said she wants to support in her run for the nation’s highest elected office?

Or what about the values suggested in another song by the Hillary endorser 50 Cent? In the rap called “Officer Down,” the singer makes several references to shooting and killing cops. Here are two examples:

“Huh, we’ll find out when niggaz, let off the rounds
And his partner’s screamin’, officer down”

“Police get in the way, I’ll murder them, I’ll murder dem
A nigga already got three strikes, I’ll murder them”

The booze-drugs-sex-violence rapper 50 Cent isn’t the only music celebrity to say that Hillary is their choice to lead the country. The CNN article notes other rappers in Hillary’s camp, including Waka Flocka Flame, Ja Rule, Snoop Dogg, and A$AP Rocky. Despite the disturbing nature of many of the lyrics in songs by these hip-hop stars, one Democrat strategist quoted in the CNN article thinks the Clinton campaign may well benefit from these celebrity endorsements.

“Getting early endorsements from pop culture figures is always helpful to a campaign to generate interest and enthusiasm,” said Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons, “But Secretary Clinton will still have to close the sale with young voters.”

Contrary to what Simmons suggests, it’s certainly reasonable to assume that not all young voters would find these rappers’ love for Hillary Clinton a reason to think she would make a good president.

Mysterious Signs Skewering Hillary And Stephanopoulos Are Popping Up Around NYC

Another display of street art taking aim at Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been spotted in New York City recently.

Western Journalism reported last month on a series of posters criticizing the Clinton campaign for suggesting certain adjectives used to describe the candidate should be off limits. Using selections from the list of descriptors one pro-Hillary group wanted banned, the resulting posters bore a sketch of Hillary Clinton surrounded by phrases such as “Don’t Say Polarizing” and “Don’t Say Secretive.”

These signs were spotted near Clinton’s Brooklyn campaign headquarters while the latest display – focusing on reports that ABC personality George Stephanopoulos donated a substantial amount of money to the Clinton Foundation – was hung near the network’s news headquarters in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Similar signs and stickers were also found near the Times Square studio from which Stephanopoulos anchors Good Morning America.

Western Journalism heard from one source who passed along several photos of the graphic with the phrase “Pay Pal” prominently displayed on top and a faux “Donate” button at the bottom.

There is little more information available about the source or intention of these signs; however, this ad hoc campaign is just one of several that have bucked the leftist slant often associated with street art.

In addition to the aforementioned anti-Hillary artwork displayed in New York, Western Journalism also reported that artwork supporting Republican White House hopeful Ted Cruz began showing up throughout San Francisco earlier this year.

Is street art like this a threat to Hillary’s campaign? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Watch: He Blames Fox News For Hillary Woes, Then Megyn Kelly Takes Him To Truth School

Bill Burton is currently a hotshot political consultant for a big PR firm that, according to its website, specializes in promoting abortion rights, same-sex marriage, and anti-gun activism. But, you may remember, Burton used to be one of the front men for President Obama’s progressive agenda — he was White House deputy press secretary under Robert Gibbs for a couple of years.

Keeping his hand in the game of trying to spin winning stories for Democrat politicians, Burton recently appeared on The Kelly File with an astonishing claim about the cause of Hillary Clinton’s woes. He told Megyn Kelly that the blame for the “cloud of corruption” that hangs over Hillary’s head can be laid at the feet of, you guessed it, Fox News.

Despite the many reports critical of the former secretary of state in the liberal media — with The New York Times often in the lead — Burton took what turned out to be a weak, off-target shot at Fox News and conservative politicians.

As coverage on BizPac Review of the Burton-Kelly exchange noted:

Former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton appeared on “The Kelly File” mainly to defend the Democrat frontrunner for 2016 from another “phony scandal” — charges she used bad intelligence on Libya from her friend Sidney Blumenthal, a man the Obama administration wouldn’t allow Clinton to hire at the State Department, who had business interests in Libya.

Then the former Obama flack and staunch Dem defender went on to make the Fox News-bashing claim for which Kelly took him to school. You can watch how Megyn delivered the tough truth lesson by clicking on the video above.

WATCH What Happens When A Pompous Dem Meets Face To Face With Sheriff Clarke

Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) anticipated Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke readily conceding a point the legislator was making, but the straight-talking sheriff’s response caught him completely off guard.

Clarke was part of a panel testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday concerning “Policing Strategies for the 21st Century.” One of the topics of the hearing was the rising tensions between police and the black community in parts of the country.

During Clarke’s five minute opening statement, he cautioned lawmakers not to jump to the conclusion that, because of Ferguson and other high-profile, racially charged incidents and the high incarceration rates of black people, police department policies are mainly to blame.

Clarke noted that “black-on-black crime” is a real elephant in the room along with drug use, which he called the “scourge of the black community.” He said the high incarceration rate “is not the result of a discriminatory criminal justice system.” The truth of the matter is that blacks engage in violent and drug-related crimes at a higher rate than the general population, resulting in a higher black incarceration rate, the lawman argued.

Concerning police use of force, Clarke referenced a study conducted between 2009-2012 which found that 61 percent of those who died due to police use of force were white males, while 32 percent were black males.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who is a former federal prosecutor, said regarding police use of force during the hearing: “I want us to get to the point where we lament the murder of a black female … at the hand of her abusive husband … just as much as if it was at the hand of a white cop.”

On the topic of the nation adopting federal policing standards, Clarke rejected the notion, arguing police work is a local government matter.

When it was Cohen’s turn to question Clarke, he started out with apparent confidence that he could get the sheriff to concede at least one point to him; but he was soon disappointed. As reported by Bizpac Review:

“You said that illegal drug use is the scourge of the black community and it is a problem and leads to a great deal of violent crime,” Cohen said.

“Would you agree that marijuana possession is not the scourge of the black community and does not lead to violent crime the same way that meth, crack cocaine, and heroin do?”

“No, I wouldn’t agree with that at all,” Clarke said.

Whatever point Cohen was trying to make was lost.

“Well, that’s interesting, and I wish I had more time to talk to you,” Cohen fumbled. “Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.”

The exchange clearly didn’t go the way the Cohen expected. In fact, his nervous laughter showed just how embarrassed he was.

“It was such an obvious answer — I just never thought I’d get that answer,” he said.

He clearly didn’t give it any thought at all.

Sheriff David Clarke has. And it showed.

Watch: Hillary Fans Accidentally Sabotage Her With Awkward Response To Simple Question

In a focus group Tuesday, several Iowa Democrats could not name a single accomplishment during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics sat down with a group of 10 Democrats— five men and five women— to get their take on Clinton and the Democratic field. “What did she accomplish that you consider significant as secretary of state?” Halperin asked the group.

“I really can’t name anything off the top of my head,” one person replied. “Give me a minute. Give me two minutes. Go someplace else,” said another.

When Halperin asked a third person, Christine, if she could name anything, she paused and finally said, “No.”

One person confessed she had not “followed along everything that was going on” in the news.

“I mean it’s either going to be that or it’s going to be Scott Walker, you know, taking away, destroying America’s unions,” said Ryan, a 24-year-old graphic designer.

And there’s just, you know, she’s not perfect. But she’s been in the eye for a long time, in the public’s eye, and you’re going to have some stuff on her. But she has great policies and she knows how to get stuff done.

It was reported Monday that the House Select Committee on Benghazi will subpoena Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. The one-time senior advisor to President Bill Clinton reportedly fed the former secretary of state intelligence about Libya. The panel’s chair, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said in a recent radio interview he wanted to interview Blumenthal.

“He is on the list … We are taking the witnesses from the Department of State and CIA whose identities need to be preserved, we’re doing them first, and those are transcribed interviews,” Gowdy told Hugh Hewitt last month.
