The myth of Voter Suppression by Republicans
Every election cycle, Democrats try to deceive blacks by claiming falsely that Republicans engage in “voter suppression”
and want to “disenfranchise” blacks, even though blacks are voting in record numbers, particularly in the 2008 election
when President
Barack Obama was elected. Notably, after several investigations in 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010 by
civil rights organizations and liberal newspapers, Democrats have produced no blacks who were denied the right to vote.
If even one black person had been
denied the right to vote, that person’s name would have been blasted on the front page
of every newspaper in this country. Democrats gleefully ignore the charges, investigations and convictions of the
controlled group, ACORN, for massive voter fr
aud in several states. Democrats also vigorously fight the
enactment of voter identification laws that would prevent voter fraud.
Democrats Practice Voter Intimidation
Real voter intimidation was done by Black Panthers who wielded weapons,
hurled racial
insults at voters and blocked polls at a Philadelphia polling place
in the 2008 Election. Incredibly, the charges were dropped by President
Obama, which resulted in a unanimous Civil Rights Commission decision
expressing outrage. Jerry Jackson, one of t
he Black Panther defendants is an
elected member of Philadelphia’s 4
Ward Democratic Committee and was a
credentialed poll watcher for Obama and the Democratic Party.

BP Oil Crisis Exposed Democrats’ Race
based Double Standard
Contrast the media’s reaction to the Hurricane Katrina disaster with how they focused attention toward BP and away from
President Obama’s incompetent handling of the G
ulf oil crisis that resulted in oil sludge reaching the Gulf Coast,
devastating that region’s economy and adversely affecting ten percent of our nation’s gross national product (GDP). With
the callousness of a committed ideologue, Obama used the oil spill
catastrophe to push his cap
tax agenda. That
reckless legislation will skyrocket the cost of energy and spend billions of dollars on green energy programs that even
Spain abandoned because such green schemes are unworkable and economically disastrous.
Obama’s green energy
along with his takeover of parts of our private sector industry, as well as our entire health care system
make all Americans poorer and less free.
The Democratic Party today is anti
Democrats have been running black communities for the past 50 years, and the socialist
policies of the Democrats have turned black communities into economic and social
wastelands. Democrats have the audacity to blame Republicans for the crisis in black
ghborhoods created by the Democrats.
Democratic Party operatives trashed black Democrat Juan Williams, calling him a “Happy
Negro” for daring to expose the failed socialist policies of the Democrats in his book
“Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead
End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are
dermining Black America”.
Without remorse, Democrats deliberately keep blacks in poverty because Democrats have
built their political power base on the backs of poor blacks, just as Democrats built their economic power base on the
backs of poor blacks dur
ing the days of slavery. The centuries
old election year strategy of the Democrats is to keep
blacks poor, angry and voting for Democrats. Every election cycle, Democrats preach hatred against Republicans and
incite blacks to cast a protest vote against Re
publicans, not for Democrats.
With the complicity of the liberal press, Democrats hide their actions that keep blacks in
poverty. For instance, Democrats are aligned with teachers’ unions and block efforts of
Republicans to provide school choice scholar
ships to black parents so they can get their
children out of failing schools. Democrats put the special interests of teachers’ unions over
that of poor blacks. Democrats do not want to acknowledge that the money belongs to the
people, not the buildings t
hat are controlled by the teachers. Democrats are also aligned with
the AARP, one of the Democratic Party’s biggest special interest groups, and block Social
Security reform, even though blacks on average lose $10,000 in the system because blacks on
ge have a five
year shorter life expectancy.

Barack Obama and the Betrayal of Black America
By Chidike
When Barack Obama was elected as the president of the United States, black
liberals dreamily believed that the numerous maladies in the black community
would cease to exist. They believed that his election was indicative of a
vigorous wind of polit
ical and social change that was blowing across the
country. Barack Obama himself vowed that his election would demarcate the
conclusion of grisly "politics as usual" from the commencement of political and democratic freshness. However, as this
tion continues on, it is abundantly clear that Obama has not only failed to deliver in a general sense, but he has
also completely betrayed his most loyal constituency
the black community.
After passing a gargantuan stimulus plan that was supposed to f
ix the economy, the unemployment rate continued to rise
until it only recently began falling. Although we are currently at a 9.1 percent unemployment rate, the rate in the black
community is at an unpardonably enormous 16.1 percent
the highest of an
y ethnic group in the country. It is also
important to note that black unemployment was lower under Bush than it has been at any point during Obama's
administration. In point of fact, black unemployment was even lower under Bush than it was under Clinton
More egregious than the high rate of black unemployment is the fact that Obama has been completely disconnected with
the black community. He has failed to articulate any policy that would deal with the crisis that is evident in urban
America. Rather, O
bama is much more focused on articulating and enacting policies about issues that are close to his
heart, such as allowing gays to serve openly in the military, as well as becoming a potent mouthpiece for the immoral
Arab scam to steal Israeli land and ann
ihilate the Jewish people.
Any intellectually honest person in America must look at Obama's demonstrable disregard for black issues and come to
the unavoidable conclusion that black America is the very least of Obama's concerns. So obvious is this fact t
hat even
some of Barack Obama's most ardent supporters in the black intelligentsia have begun voicing strident denunciations of
the president. The latest assault on Obama from his left
wing compatriot Cornel West is evidence of this phenomenon.
Although W
est's critique of Obama was partly personal and laden with his characteristically asinine divisive racial
rhetoric, there was some substance to his criticism to which left
wing Obama cheerleaders in the black community remain
willfully blind. West accused
Obama of being "a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate
While West foolishly assumes that support for black issues and being in favor of business are mutually exclusive, the
unstated and basic premise in West'
s critique is that Obama does not care enough about, and expresses no interest in,
black people and black issues. As absurd as the rest of his intellectually messy ramblings are, West is right about that
fundamental point.
Obama's sycophants are used to
writing off all criticism of the president coming from whites as racist, and they are
equally used to describing all criticism from black conservatives as being the puerile rants of Uncle Toms obsequiously
looking for approval from "the white man"; however
, although Cornel West is one of the black left's most revered
academics, they would much rather write him off as entirely crazy than to admit that any criticism he has of Barack
Obama contains even a scintilla of merit.

Goldwater was a Libertarian, not a racist
A review of Senator Barry Goldwater’s record shows that he was a Libertarian, not a
Goldwater was a member of the Arizona NAACP and was involved in
desegregating the Arizona National Guard.
ported the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the Civil Rights Act of 1960
, as
well as the constitutional amendment banning the poll tax. His opposition to the more comprehensive Civil
Rights Act of 1964 was based on his libertarian views about government. Goldw
ater believed that the 1964 Act,
as written, unconstitutionally extended the federal government's commerce power to private citizens, furthering
the government’s efforts to "legislate morality" and restrict the rights of employers.
It is instructive to r
ead the entire text of Goldwater's 1964 speech at the 28th Republican National Convention,
accepting the nomination for president that is available from the Arizona Historical Foundation.
By the end of
his career, Goldwater was one of the most respected m
embers of either party
and was considered a
stabilizing influence in the Senate. Senator Goldwater's speech may be found also on the Internet at:
srv/politics/daily/may98/goldw aterspeech.htm
Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

OBAMA Is Not The President of African Americans?
One of the talking points formulated by Obama's apologists in the media is the
notion that Obama is not the president of black A
merica. They argue he is the
president of the United States of America. This pathetically feeble argument exists
for the sole purpose of deflecting legitimate criticism of Obama's failure to meet
the needs of the black community.
The fact of the matter i
s that Obama is the president of African Americans, just as
he is the president of white Americans. It takes a shocking display of intellectual dishonesty to suddenly release Obama
of any responsibility for black America, especially when previous presiden
ts have always been held responsible for their
treatment of the black community.
In 1998, the Nobel
winning writer Toni Morrison gave Bill Clinton the honorary moniker of "America's first black
president" because, according to her, he "display[ed] a
lmost every trope of blackness: single
parent household, born poor,
class, saxophone
playing, McDonald's
loving boy from Arkansas."
Leaving aside the recognizably insulting view of what constitutes blackness in Morrison's perverse mi
nd, had white,
southern Clinton possessed all these qualities while presiding over 16.1 percent unemployment, I am positive that this
endearing nickname would never have been created
much less believed by black liberals for many years until the
e of Obama.
By contrast, the left, with unutterable alacrity, vociferously argued that George W. Bush's less
stellar handling of
Hurricane Katrina was indicative of his incurable allergy toward black skin. Even largely apolitical rapper Kanye West
ok the time out to accuse Bush of not caring about blacks. The fact that Bush packed his administration with
exceptionally well
qualified minorities was completely disregarded when the black left gave Bush his failing report card.
One can only imagine th
e panic
stricken cries of racism that would have been heard for years if Bush had overseen 16.1
percent black unemployment.
It is nothing more than liberal hypocrisy to see the crisis evident in the black community under Obama's watch and simply
respond wi
th the contemptible shibboleth stating, "Obama is not the president of black America; he's the president of the
United States of America"
especially when every other president in recent history has been critically judged on their
treatment of the black

There's no scandal here--just the IRS doing their job, looking into organizations that evidently are violating the law.

From the article:
"the real that 501(c)(4) groups have been engaged in political activity in such a sustained and open way. As Fred Wertheimer, the President of Democracy 21, a government-ethics watchdog group, put it,'it is clear that a number of groups have improperly claimed tax-exempt status as section 501(c)(4)‘social welfare’ organizations in order to hide the donors who financed their campaign activities in the 2010 and 2012 federal elections.'" Washington’s scandal machinery, rusty from recent disuse, is cranking back up to speed due to the alleged targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said,“It’s the kind of thing that scares the American people to their core. When Americans are being targeted for audits based on their political beliefs, that needs to change.” Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, called on the President to apologize. George Will said President Obama could be impeached. Obama himself is taking the path of contrition. At a news conference Monday, the President said,“If in fact I.R.S. personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous. And there’s no place for it.” More hearings, with more outrage, are planned.
In light of this, it might be useful to ask: Did the I.R.S. actually do anything wrong?" Check this out:
Didn't the New Yorker just publish another BS article just recently that was discredited as liberal horse manure?

Pretty sure it did.

The words "New York" in "New Yorker" should give you a hint they aren't going to be fair and balanced in their elitist bias.

Secondly, there are small explosive devices made for just blowing off doors so, that kills you little theory ! That theory is no more than right wrong conspiracy spin that you've bought into like Enron stock. It makes no sense. There are a thousand ways to have Stevens kidnapped without conspiring with the enemy! More better & effective ways!
Yeah... until someone leaks it out. We all know how unlikely it would be for information to be leaked out of the government.
Al Qaeda wasn't losing men during the attack because the White House (Vallerie Jarrett, Obama isn't even involved in government) ordered all units to not engage Al Qaeda while they attempted to kidnap Stevens.
Al Qaeda had explosives, RPGs and hand grenades. Why didn't they just blow the door away and light him up with their AKs? Because blowing the door might kill Stevens, and the intent was to kidnap Stevens, not kill him.
The only reason Al Qaeda attacked a, how did you denigrate it, "temporary rented consular building in Bumfuck Libya" was to kidnap an ambassador of the United States of America. Here's what the plan was:
The security for the ambassador would be reduced by the administration making it easier to kidnap the ambassador. During the attack, the White House (Vallerie Jarrett) would issue orders with presidential authority to stand down any US Armed Forces assets that were pre-positioned specifically to respond to specifically a terrorist attack specifically on our embassy specifically in Libya. Then, the White House would lie to cover up Al Qaeda's involvement while the network "news" programs would mislead the country concentrating on where Stevens was, what condition he was in, and the progress of the "negotiations" with the Muslim Brotherhood, who has a permenant presence in the White House, to exchange Stevens for that terrorist blind sheik in prison for attempting to murder 30 THOUSAND Americans.
However, Plan A went wrong and the ambassador died of smoke inhalation when Al Qaeda tried to smoke him out of the room he baricaded himself in.

And, just like Al Bundy, nobody in the White House had a plan B.
Even you have to laugh at the bufoonery in the White House today.
I'd laugh if it were happening in some other country.
