New York Times Calls Only
African-American In The U.S.
Senate A ‘Token’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/19/2012 8:58:44 AM

You have got to hand it to the New York Times’ editors – they’ve got moxy. A Times opinion piece on Tuesday introducing their readers to the newest Senator from the Palmetto State, former Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC), speaks about him – and those with who share his political affiliation and skin color – in the terms you would describe a curious science project. In “The Puzzle of Black Republicans,” the Times summons all the subtlety of the Kool-Aid Man as they smash through the perception that the “paper of record” maintains a single shred of neutrality

It is time for disgusting publications like the New York TImes to be put out of business, Tim Scott is a fine American and he will make an outstanding Senator. He is no token anything.

This "Token" would be the greatest thing ever if the first black senator was a democrat. It shows who the real racists are so this good man will be attacked for being who he is.

The dems love keeping blacks on the plantation. At the gas station yeaterday, a black man noticed my Romney sticker on my car. He said, " i cant believe we lost the eelction. I am stunned that so many stupid people believed Obama´s lies and voted for him." I agreeed and said i was fond ofmHerman Cain. He said "Cain is a very smart man. But I supported Romney all the way. Still cant believe Obama won." Told him the county I grew up in down in South FL had 100% of its precincts turn in more votes than there were registered voters. He aaid "there was definitely fraud going on in many states. How can anyone get 100% of the vote in some places, like Ø did??" Shook his head and drove off in a very nice car. He was well-dressed and looked like a successful person . God bless him. Ø is coming after his money, as well as ours. That man gets it.

I can only hope that someday someone from the Republican Party will stand up and call these liberal news rags what they really are: RACIST. They constantly bring race into every discussion and then point fingers at republicans for being anti everything under the sun. And they get away with it. It´s time for republicans to stand up, fight back, call them out, and repudiate everything they say, write, speak. That is why we don´t win elections. We allow ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and all the liberal newspaper rags in this country to frame the republican talking points. It´s time to wake up and FIGHT BACK!!!

Looks like I was right: I told my friend the other day that the lefties in Carolina were just mad since Gov. Haley´s appointment on Tim Scott took away their ability to play the Race Card (tm). #3 and #5 are right: the left are the REAL racists.

They call us names, impugn our every word and thought only because with repetition many people believe it and are embarrassed to be labeled a Republican. But, there are exceptions like my friend Barbara who is black, thinks for herself and having been a Democrat knows them like a book. Barbara loudly proclaims, "I am a black Republican and proud of it".

Most liberals are white upper-middle class (and higher) folks who primiarly live in New England states and the Coastal areas in the West.

Most don´t really care about the plight of blacks or hispanics or any other group expect how can we use them to obtain enough votes to keep our agenda moving forward.

Say what you need to say, act like you care, and blame the other party for all their troubles.

How many minorities are in positions of authority or leadership in the Democrat party?
Leahy, Reid, Pelosi, Dingle, Schumer, Boxer, Kerry....

They trot out Maxine Waters and Barbara Jackson Lee to provide window dressing on X issue since neither is in any jeopardy of losing their seat no matter how outlandish their comments. It´s all part of the liberal Democrat game.

Most African-Americans aren´t liberal.
Most Hispanics aren´t liberal.
Most Asians aren´t liberal.

So according to the racists at the NYT, this good man is just a token? He is the first black senator from the south since 1881, and you want to call him a token? Way to cover history there slimeballs.

I think in view of the mindset of liberals now, that commonsense behaviour could qualify now as a minority in the dem camp.

To liberals there are only two kinds of blacks - house negroes and field negroes. Therefore, Scott must be a token since those are the only kinds of blacks they believe exist. Liberals are racists to the core.

NYT and leftwing extremist uses this code word Token as a term they use for blacks that have strayed from their plantation. They have just modified the Democrat party heyday methods of the KKK to keeps blacks in line.

Thanks Senator Scott and Justice Thomas for being all you can be and leaving the KKK Democrat plantation.

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality. About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Who’s Attending Eric Holder’s Off The

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 12:07:33 PM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t
just about being nice to people

Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:48:54 AM     Post Reply
Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery
sign of deeper problem with campaign
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/16/2014 7:35:16 AM     Post Reply
Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
