Obama Aide: ´With these Republicans
there´d still be slavery today´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 12/3/2012 9:34:37 AM

MSNBC host Chuck Todd reported that a "very smart White House aide" told him that "with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there´d still be slavery.""You´re going to like this," MSNBC host Chuck Todd said this morning on TV. "So, I threw the Lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, ´You know, with this Republican, with the way politics of Washington are today, there´d still be slavery. Lincoln wouldn´t have been able to navigate the polarization between the media between this--´ It was an interesting and depressing observation

Comments:
To Chuck Todd and MSNBC, this is interesting. That WH aide is smart, look at how they get their disgusting talking points mainstreamed.BTW, this was on Morning Joe. The ´legitimate´ news show on MSNBC. Can GOP members please stop going on this show?

#1, we all know that. It has been explained ad nauseam. If they keep repeating the lie it becomes part of the folklore. Remember Clinton and Gingrich´s ´Medicare Cuts´? We need some one like Lee Atwater to fight fire with fire.

this man, Obama, and his ilk have done more
to create discord among men. The South, who were the Democrats, wanted slavery. The North, Republicans, etc., wanted freedom for all men, and paid a huge price for this
stand. Now, the Democrats claim Republicans are for slavery!

Yes, I too wish we had 50 Newts to tongue lash these people with such comments and set the record straight. Read history!!!!

You want slavery? Just waiting until Sharia gets a foothold. After all the Koran allows it, particularly as pillage.

Okay, here´s a question. Who would own slaves and what would they be doing? Recall that when you own a slave it´s a lot more expensive and time consuming than owning, say, a tractor. Or hiring some migrant workers to do your picking. So, for what reason would anyone own a slave?

I´d like to know Chuck Todd´s answer to that. Of course he didn´t say it. It was a really smart anonymous staffer who said it. Yeah, right.

What a moron.
How someone so historically illiterate can make an observation as this can be accounted only to his lack of intellect.
The founding aim of the Republican party was freeing the african race from bandage.
Lincoln just did it.

More recently than slavery, would the Civil Rights Act of 1964 have passed without Republican support?

I´m increasingly insulted .......... and even sometimes wonder these days whether the price we paid to stop slavery was worth it ......... since it isn´t appreciated by those we freed.

NOTE
My Grandfathers eldest brother died in a Confederate Prison camp ........... another relative died along with his wife,[who was nursing him] at a hospital of disease.

Additionally 2 cousins were officers in a USCT unit ........... I´m not counting the total number of relatives who fought in the War ............ and those wounded.

It was the Ds who fought FOR Slavery, stupid!

I also wonder if this pea brain knows the civil war was fought over economics and power; not slavery. Lincoln and others could have cared less about slavery.

A higher percentage of Republicans voted for EVERY Civil Rights bill than Democrats! Especially before 1964. There were actually black senators and congressmen before democraps took control of the WH again - then they were gone because of Jim Crow laws and the KKK that were both creations of democraps.

Why the Republicans don´t trumpet this more often confounds me.

Except for the inconvenient fact that democrats were the slave holders and hundreds of thousands of republicans fought and died to free them - the guy must have sort of point.

Teacher resignations up
significantly in Wake County
WTVD News [Raleigh,NC], by Heather Waliga    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/18/2014 7:48:00 AM     Post Reply
More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

´X-Men´ director accused of

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

   

 



 
Accused O.C. killers likely
wore GPS devices during
slayings, police say
Los Angeles Times, by Paloma Esquivel and Adolfo Flores    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/15/2014 6:47:32 AM     Post Reply
Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the
Washingtonian that make
Jay Carney look ridiculous
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/12/2014 7:10:07 AM     Post Reply
The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
