Black voters look to
leverage their loyalty

Associated Press, by By Suzanne Gamboa

WASHINGTON — When black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, black leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief. That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress. Although they waver over how much to demand from the president — particularly in light of defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney´s assertion that Obama gave "gifts" to minorities in exchange for their votes — they are delivering postelection wish lists to the president anyway.

Riiiight, you turn out every election and vote for the Democrats. Why should they do anything special for you? It´s not like you are going to start voting Republican. Heck, they can scare you with some story about how those scary Republicans are going to try and re-enslave you (even though it was the Republicans who fought to end slavery) and you will turn out in droves.

I heard a black lady spokesman on Fox demand in no uncertain terms that Republicans fall in line and give the president the taxes he wants. When she was asked about cuts in spending she mentioned only one: The military, she said, has been given more money that it ever asked for.

The Democrats always gut the military, and, why not, since the military votes predominently Republican.

Blacks voting for democrats is, on a much smaller scale, like Jews voting for Hitler. Democrats have entrenched blacks in generational bare subsistence welfare misery. Are the black leaders trying to increase the number of whole families in their community? You know, like ones with a father and a mother? I don´t hear them asking for help with that major problem. What they like is raising the minimum wage, which drives black youth unemployment still higher. Democrat politicians are quite happy with the black situation as it is. Do blacks really think business will be hiring when their taxes are going to go up, regulations will be increasing, and obamacare will smother them?

I have news for these dunderheads - black unemployment is likely to get worse now that BO care is a certainty.

Any business owner who wants to get rid of the BO voters on his payroll can get rid of the black employees secure in the knowledge that 96% if them voted for The Won. He/she can throw in a few single white women and hispanics for good measure to make it "fair."

#8 - Why should they work? Everything they want is given to them with no strings attached. I don´t know how much more they expect, but I´m sure they´ll think of lots of things and Obama is only too happy to punish Whitey.

Obviously the black unemployment number does not matter by the results of the Nov. 6th election.

That´s funny.

They long ago went from "loyal" to "dupe."

Lookit, y´all -- the Dems have all the voting records and registration information they need; they have election-fixing down pat; they can dial-a-"turnout" and come up with whatever "vote count" is needed anywhere, any time, which will go unchallenged. So, as Chili said to Bo in "Get Shorty," "If I need a ride, I´ll call you."

Although it must be said that they´ve been consistently bigoted throughout.

Disgusting!

If 93 percent of white voters had voted for the white candidate, it would not be called ´loyalty.´ It would be called white racism.

But the black community are absolutely right - Obama hasn´t been any help. It is true, he leveraged their trust to get himself in position to undertake a bunch of sixties ideas. If he were going to really help them, that would be different, but he isn´t. It´s going be same old, same old. If he actually helped that community, improved the schools and so on ... Oh, why think through the rest of that sentence. He won´t.

Uncooperative witness jailed;

A defiant witness left a Detroit courtroom in handcuffs Monday, after a tense hearing that found sufficient evidence to send three men to trial in the mob beating of 54-year-old Steve Utash near an east-side gas station. A fourth man waived his right to the hearing and will also stand trial. Wearing yellow jumpsuits, the three defendants sat handcuffed to one another: Latrez Cummings, 19; James Davis, 24, and Wonzey Saffold, 30, who showed his middle finger to a group of news cameras. Each of the three confessed to kicking Utash of Clinton Township at least once, according to their

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. — A Minnesota man on trial for killing two teenagers after they broke into his house had planned the killings, and was lying in wait in his basement with a book, some snacks and two guns, prosecutors said Monday. But a defense attorney countered that his client was terrified after several increasingly violent break-ins and hid after hearing a window break and footsteps upstairs. Byron Smith, 65, of Little Falls, is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the slayings of 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer on Thanksgiving Day in 2012.

MONROE, La. — In a matter of days, Republican Vance McAllister has gone from being the unlikely congressman — a special election winner who trounced his party´s establishment candidate — to the "kissing congressman," a faith-and-family politician caught on video embracing an aide married to one of his friends. Amid some calls for his resignation, he has said he will respect the verdict of his constituents this fall. Residents interviewed here by The Associated Press expressed disappointment, but not surprise.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A serial killer was put to death Thursday in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it gets its lethal injection drug. Tommy Lynn Sells, 49, was the first inmate to be injected with a dose of newly replenished pentobarbital that Texas prison officials obtained to replace an expired supply of the powerful sedative. Sells declined to give a statement. As the drug began flowing into his arms inside the death chamber in Huntsville, Sells took a few breaths, his eyes closed and he began to snore.

PITTSBURGH – A 5-year-old bows her head at lunch to say Grace before she eats may be considered cute and heartwarming by some. That was not the case for a student in Florida. The young girl was told by a school lunchroom supervisor that her actions were wrong. The girl’s father, Marcos Perez, is outraged to the point where he is considering homeschooling his child. Today, the Liberty Institute sent a letter to the school administrators demanding they stop allowing religious discrimination, which is in violation of not only state, but federal law. The school denies the incident.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
