No Way! Mitt Romney DID NOT Leave The Door Open To Running in 2015 (And Lloyd Did Not Get Mary)

(Scene from the movie Dumb and Dumber)
Lloyd Christmas: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you, Mary. The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?
Mary Swanson: Not good.
Lloyd Christmas: You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?
Mary Swanson: I'd say more like one out of a million.
Lloyd Christmas: So you're telling me there's a chance... YEAH!
Almost every news outlet that covered Tuesday's Mitt Romney interview with Hugh Hewitt said the 2012 candidate left the door to running in 2016 slightly ajar. They got the story wrong. As a regular listener to the Hugh Hewitt show, I listened to the entire interview live. The truth is Mitt Romney said it over and over again: "I will not run in 2016."

He said it before the four minute clip that was sent to the media:
Romney: (laughing) Well, I’m not going to be running, but I can give a lot of advice to the many folks that are going to be running. And you know, there are a number of things I’d tell them
He said it after the four minute clip sent to the media:
Romney: I want the country to win. I do not want to see Hillary Clinton as our next president. So I stepped aside so someone who has a better shot will be able to step forward.
During the entire interview a determined Hewitt kept finding different ways to ask the same question, in the end Romney stood his ground, saying, "I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do."

Romney did say circumstances can change but after Hewitt's relentless questioning, Romney did  quote Dumb and Dumber by offering the host his "one in a million" chance of running: if all the other candidates got together and said, "Hey, we’ve decided we can’t do it, you must do it." In other words, he isn't running. Note: At the end of Dumb and Dumber Lloyd does not get Mary

Read and listen to below the 4 minute segment sent to the media:
Hewitt: Now Governor Romney, because you were the governor of the Commonwealth, you know your revolutionary history. And so I want to throw a little Thomas Paine at you from December 23rd of 1776. They call it the darkest hour of the Revolution. It’s before Trenton and the Delaware crossing, after six months of misery and defeats. And Thomas Paine writes the famous opening lines of the crisis: "These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." So here’s the question. If you personally believed, I mean, really, genuinely believed that you were the only candidate who could beat Hillary, and that belief was confirmed by your family and your friends and respected political advisors, would you not then feel obliged to run?

(laughing) Well, Hugh, the reason I came to the conclusion I did, which is this is not the right time for me to run, is because of my belief that someone else stands a better chance of winning than I do. Had that not been the case, had I believed I would actually be best positioned to beat Hillary Clinton, then I would be running. But I actually believe that someone new that is not defined, yet, someone who perhaps is from the next generation, will be able to catch fire, potentially, build a movement, and be able to beat Hillary Clinton. If I thought that weren’t the case, well, I would have been running. But I think we’ve got a number of very good people looking at this race. I’m expecting someone to be able to catch fire and get the job done.

Hewitt: Now I’m pressing, and I’m pressing an advantage of long acquaintance, and so forgive me for this, but that’s subject to change, right? People’s candidacies implode, circumstances change. People who organized campaigns approach you. And so I’m not asking you to, I wouldn’t presume to ask you to say "Yeah, I’m in the race." But circumstances change. And if you thought that in fact it were not that way, that you thought you were the only one who could do this, you’d change your mind, wouldn’t you?

Romney: (laughing) I’m not going there, Hugh. I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time. And again, we said look, I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do. And that’s what we believe, and that’s why I’m not running. And you know, circumstances can change, but I’m just not going to let my head go there. I remember that great line from Dumb and Dumber, where the…

Hewitt: So you’re telling me I have a chance?

There you go, you remember. You’re telling me I have a chance? That’s one of a million.

Hewitt: Hey, all, the takeaway is already circumstances can change. I know how we’re going to play this. But I hope it’s not the Harold Stassen nonsense, which overlooks the far more unlikely comebacks like Reagan’s and Nixon’s, and Dewey’s and Stevenson and William Jennings Bryant. In fact, not even Stassen became a joke until his ’64 run. His previous four runs were all very serious affairs. Here’s what your running mate said yesterday on this show.

Ryan: I would welcome it. I’ve told him that, I was with him last Thursday. I think he should run. I think people are getting to know who he really is. I think there’s buyer’s remorse, and I think he’d make an outstanding president. He says emphatically, though, that he won’t do it. You know, I just wish he would. I think he’d be a unifier. But I just, I’ll take Mitt at his word, and he’s pretty clear he’s not going to do it.

Hewitt: See, he’s not as abrasive as I am. And so you have been very clear you’re not doing it now. I just keep looking for that, I get asked everywhere I go because I wrote the book about you, have you heard if there’s any door open. And I said no, I haven’t. He always says no, no, no, but I’ve always also said that I thought if you thought you were the only guy who could win, you’d do it.

Romney: Well, you know, let’s say all the guys that were running all came together and said, "Hey, we’ve decided we can’t do it, you must do it." That’s the one of the million we’re thinking about.

Hatred In NYC--Jewish Couple Attacked By Palestinian Supporters

A Jewish couple in were on the Upper East Side of Manhattan New York Monday evening when they were physically assaulted by an anti-Semitic gang, who then fled the scene in cars flying the Palestinian Authority flag, according to the New York Post. An indication that the Islamist-led Antisemitism permeating through Europe has gained a foothold in the United States.

According to the report two cars along with multiple motorcycles pulled up to the couple on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue just after 8 p.m., and the assailants began yelling “anti-Jewish statements." Police reportedly believe the couple was singled out because the husband was wearing a yarmulke.

One of the goons threw a water bottle that hit the wife, and the 27-year-old husband was punched in the side of his head when he came to her defense, according to law enforcement sources.

Police sources said the creeps then raced back to their waiting vehicles, some of which bore Palestinian flags, and took off.

The victims, who live in the area but were not identified by authorities, were not seriously injured and refused medical attention at the scene.

The couple, who live in the neighborhood, reported the incident to the NYPD who has their Hate Crimes Task Force investigating the attack. Councilman Garodnick, who represents the community in the City Council, and Councilman Greenfield stand together to shine a light on this hate-driven act and send a clear message that hate crimes are never tolerated in our city.

The hate crimes task force is investigating the assault, and police sources said that the victim may have been targeted because he was wearing a yarmulke.  According to the NYPD, the men drove in a white Cadillac Escalade with New York license plates and a white Nissan Altima with Florida plates. The NYPD also said they may have the licence plate numbers of the cars. The five to eight suspects are believed to be males in their 20s with Middle Eastern descent.

There were no arrests as of early Wednesday morning and a description of the suspects was not immediately available

Listen Tonight @10PM EDT Actor Adam Baldwin On The Hump Day News Report

Actor, Master of Twitter, Hollywood Conservative, Patriot, and Good Guy, Adam Baldwin will be on the Hump Day News Report Tonight – 10PM ET – 8/27

Click below to listen live or listen to the podcast at anytime after the show.

AdamBalwin2Adam Baldwin was born in in Winnetka, Illinois, and has a lengthy list of movie and TV credentials, including My Bodyguard, Full Metal Jacket, Serenity, Independence Day, Firefly, and now in post-apocalyptic military drama The Last Ship.
At 6’4″ with a strong and sturdy build, Baldwin is the perfect type to play law enforcement and military roles.

On The Last Ship, Adam Baldwin co-stars as XO Mike Slattery, second in command to Commander Tom Chandler (Eric Dane), captain of the U.S.S. Nathan James, a Navy guided missile destroyer. For Adam who has played characters named Casey and Jayne it is a rare opportunity to play a character who does not have a girls name.

Kate O’Hare writes up a Baldwin interview at Breitbart:
…the Navy is apparently happy with how he wears the uniform in The Last Ship and with the show itself.

“They love it,” Baldwin tells Breitbart News. “They were thrilled, and the funny thing is, you have a dedicated fan base, and a built-in fan base, from the Navy, because our goal was to portray the Navy as realistically as we could within the scenario and within our Hollywood creation.”

“…When I can, I speak up for the Navy and the military, as much as I can. Hopefully they understand that I respect them, and I’ve raised some money for them. I wish I could do more.
Adam is a person of whom it was once said, "Man walks down the street in a hat like that, you know he's not afraid of anything"

Baldwin (no relation to Alec Baldwin or his brothers) is a conservative and, as noted, an avid supporter of the military. Adam and his wife, Ami Julius, have been married since 1988 and have three children.

Videos of Crown Heights Riot And TV Coverage--Strikingly Similar To Ferguson Missouri

In conducting research on the Faux Reverend Al Sharpton, these five videos, a compilation of the local TV news coverage of the Crown Heights riot were discovered (there were six but the last one couldn't be found)

In viewing the five films it became stunningly clear that the two incidents were striking similar.  Both started by a tragedy, both mis-managed by inept politicians, both had instigators from outside the community agitating the violence, both had Al Sharpton, both had the black community calling for arrests before the facts were revealed, both the Crown Heights and Ferguson communities complained that the media was only showing the violence, both in Ferguson and in Crown Heights some of the media protected Al Sharpton...and so much more.

Part 1: The Tragedy.  BTW notice how the local politicians immediately took sides, with out evidence. Disputing the Rabbi's account of the police directing the ambulance to take care of the driver. The Rabbis account turned out to be true.

Part 2: Day 2, Complaints the Jews got better medical attention. False reports about the ambulance go viral and stir the violence.  Two cops sent to the hospital, second night of rioting. Day 3 More violence, cops shot with BB guns, local Blacks continue to attack Jews. Mayor meets with local black groups, even goes to the local schools (just like Ferguson).

Part 3: More of the 3rd night's violence. City leaders get booed by Black community. Pictures of stores damaged an looted. Al Sharpton demands arrest of driver, without any facts.  Cops beaten up and mocked. Claims that the violent protesters come from outside of the community. The chants of the now familiar "no justice, no peace." This time the accusations were not-- too much police action, but the Jews were complaining that there was not enough police action.

Part 4: The Fourth night of the riots. Police show force. Both blacks and Jews complain that media is showing too much of the violence. It's true.  There were protests during  press conferences.  Also strange is that there was mention of Al Sharpton protests but little coverage of Al Sharpton's incitement during protests. For example the news  from this day reported the Sharpton rally marchers proceeded through Crown Heights, carrying antisemitic signs and an Israeli flag was burned. The MSM was protecting Sharpton even then.  Interestingly there was a discussion of how community pressure might effect whether or not there would be a prosecution just like Ferguson.

Part 5: Night 5 the first mostly calm night. 500 March with Al Sharpton (surrounded by 2000 cops). Still more complaints that if the driver that hit Gavin Cato was black he would have been arrested. Jews complain to reporters about outside agitators claiming to be black leaders [Sharpton] inciting the violence. Al Sharpton contends the Jews need to accept the blacks.

I am really disappointed the 6th tape does not exist because it might of had clips of Gavin Cato's funeral where, like Michael Brown's was dominated by a Eulogy by Al Sharpton.  Here there was a difference because in the Cato funeral Sharpton targeted the Jews.

Below is a description of Sharpton's eulogy from the book "Crown Heights Blacks, Jews, and the 1991 Brooklyn Riot by Edward Shapiro" which is presently out of print.

People Complaining That Billy Crystal's Emmy Tribute To Robin Williams Anti-Muslim

Most people saw Billy Crystal's tribute to Robin Williams as a touching goodbye to a good friend and a very funny and talented man.  The operative word is "most." Some thought it was a racist affront to Muslims.

At issue is a clip taken from Robin Williams' 2001 appearance on "Inside the Actors Studio" considered by many as the best episode in that shows 25-year-long history.

The clip generating complaints is short snippet from that show during which Williams borrows a pink scarf from an audience member in the front row and wraps its round his head to simulate a Hijab, and says "I would like to welcome you to Iran… Help me!" He then moves the scarf down to his shoulders and begins to act like a Jewish cantor.

The Iranian part of the clip drew criticism on Twitter:

Really people? Racist? It's time for some people to get a life. A short clip where Robin Williams makes fun of living in oppressive Iran? It is called FUNNY.  The clip below is the full improvised scarf routine he makes fun of Indians, Jews, Gays, Japanese, Hispanics, and Amish as well as Iranians. Those who complain about the clip being racist are full of camel dung.  It would have been racist if Williams had left out the Iranians.
