Great Scott! Racist GOP Picks
An African-American Senator

Investors Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/18/2012 7:13:52 PM

Congress: The first black Republican senator in three decades will be a spokesman for Tea Party conservatism and a proud member of the party that was founded to fight slavery and made the civil rights revolution possible. Though he´ll inevitably be dismissed as a "token" or worse, Rep. Tim Scott, the next Republican senator from the former slave state of South Carolina, and the first black GOP senator since Edward Brooke of Massachusetts, shatters once again the stereotype of the GOP as a party of racists and sexists.

The Tea Party and conservatives are old white men, according to the msm and all democrats. So, following that , there is no such thing as a black conservative.

It wouldn´t matter if this were on the news 24/7 for a month. Many of Ø´s voters, who have no idea who represents them in Congress, wouldn´t know Tim Scott from Dred Scott.

Wasn´t it last week some news person (female) said Repubs don´t like women and want women to move forward.

Now look! A female Republican Governor appointed a black man as Senator.

Well, well, well. What do you say now, DemoRats?

As another poster said...silence. From DemoRats and MSM.

One-sided and biased. Shame on you all.

Tim is a great guy and very much a part of our community. I wish everyone would lay off the whole black thing even when it´s supportive. He must be so bloody sick and tired of hearing it. Tim is a fiscal conservative who served his constituents well on county council, in our state house and in the US House. He is smart, funny, articulate, telegenic, charismatic, ethical and persuasive. Forget his skin color.

If every last Republican was Black the left would still be yelling:"Uncle Tom"...."House Negro"....and any other vile insult imaginable to avoid any discussion of actual policy and it´s repercussions.

Leftists are so......tribal.

Racist GOP?
Democrats held slaves, founded the KKK, hung blacks from trees, kept blacks out of white schools, opposed the Civil Rights Act, etc.
GOP freed the slaves.
Evidently, no good deed goes unpunished.

Tim Scott is an excellent choice by Gov Haley! His skin color has nothing whatever to do with his competence and qualifications. We here in SC can hardly wait until he takes office!

It´s a huge deal but ONLY if the GOP strategizes,, unifies the message and MAKES the appointment of this wonderful African-American man a very big deal. Every single Republican - analyst, consultant, Congressman, Senator, etc., needs to get t his in no matter what else they are being interviewed for. Unfortunately, we are not seeing it.

RGIII of the Redskins just broke a single season record of jersey sales which obviously demonstrates his overall popularity. But that wasn´t good enough for a black leftist on ESPN declaring him a "conrball brother" because it´s possible he´s a republican.So no one is immune from the black left´s tirades if you´re a non conformist black. A simple GOP black senator doesn´t have a chance against these haters.

My hat is tipped to the soon to be Senator. He along with Ted Cruz, Jeff Flake and Deb Fischer to make their mark in the Senate and be the leaders. 4 strong conservatives supported by conservatives.

Chris Hayes: Would Fox News

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

   

 



 
Reid: ‘Something Will Happen’ To

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Eric Holder: Obama’s ‘Clemency
Project’ will help drug offenders
sentenced under ‘the old regime’
Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/22/2014 7:56:12 PM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

“If Obamacare Dies,

National Review Online, by Wseley J. Smith    Original Article

Several weeks ago the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia sponsored a debate–more a discussion–between me and Thaddeus Mason Pope about end of life care under the Affordable Care Act. He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there. I began my presentation with the quote in the headline above–asserting that Palin’s term “death panels” may have put a spear through the heart of Obamacare. I then said: People are afraid of centralized bureaucrats dictating whether Craig’s [the moderator’s terminally ill babies) children can have medical care, whether my 96-year-old mother can have medical care, whether people with disabilities can have medical

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab. “I am deeply concerned about the

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days. The plan reads like a very slick con job, and that should cause every taxpaying

Obama to free hundreds of drug

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

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. 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
