Powell: GOP has ´a dark
vein of intolerance´

Politico, by Ginger Gibson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/13/2013 12:01:44 PM

While continuing to identify as a Republican, former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday criticized the GOP for a series of racist attacks against President Barack Obama. "There´s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party," Powell said on NBC´s "Meet the Press." "What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities." Powell, who endorsed Obama, pointed to a number of statements that were directed at Obama as evidence that there is still racism within the party.

Powell has no credibility and no honor. After what he did to Scooter Libby, he´s persona non grata with me.

But he´s a hero to the leftists for his dishonest commentary on race. What a pig. Someone needs to ask him how his first fancy house was financed in Virginia. You´ll find an Arab royalty if you dig just beneath the surface. He´s only ever been loyal to Colin Powell, the rest of America is "the little people".

There are few more intolerant than leftist ideologues. Why would a self-described Republican not know that? Didn´t realize how racist Colin Powell is and how bound by identity politics he must be.

Many Blacks are showing just how racist they are. Coming out of the closet, so to speak.
I think Powell is bitter because he KNOWS he got where he is by affirmative action and not merit.

Powell has not creditbility.
When asked back in 2008 what qualifications or credentials could he list for supporting obama, he basically had NOTHING. Ended up saying something about obama´s election being "historic". In other words, he was going to vote for obama because he was black - NOTHING ELSE ! (except for the unspoken fact that he and obama just happen to share the same SKIN color.)

That means that Powell is the RACIST - voting and supporting obama solely on the basis of their shared race. And like most / all racists he is PROJECTING his racist views on all republicans. Powell has gone from hero to ZERO in my book.

The man is dead wrong in his statements. There are many of us who absolutely abhor what has happened over the last four years and we could care less what color skin the people have that
were responsible. In fact, many informed and intelligent blacks feel the same way.

The race war has been simmering beneath the surface for many years. It´s about to boil over.

Powell, and people like him, either want it or are such morons that they don´t realize they are causing it.

If you could look behind the scenes, you´d probably find out that the mainstream media is writing his lines for him, just as they do vritually every democrat in the country. The MSM runs the show, not the democrat party as so many seem to think.

Communism creeps in slowly until all of a sudden it´s too late to stop it. And for those of you who think the New York Times is about to go belly up, think again. They will simply order the democrats to bail them out... and they will. Some Pubbies will go along, too.

A view on darkness from the quintessential lightweight. Has Powell ever said anything that doesn´t serve him first? If he had any value, you´d think a book would have been ghost written for him by now. Bottom line here, ambitious but weak minded.

How about Obama´s intolerance to wealth? He makes it out to be evil. Yet, I know some very wealthy people who are very gracious. So Colin Powell, did you forget about that intolerance of Obama´s toward the wealthy? That was what his whole campaign achieved.

Why would Powell even stay in such a party,
if it´s so racist ?
FTA- Regarding Gov Sununu , after the first debate describing Obama as lazy , Powell
said this was code for " shiftless ".
No..it´s an accurate description of Obama aka Laz- E.
Validated by his official daily schedule of two , sometimes three hr work days.
The golf, parties and long vacations.
His own admission to Damian Lewis, the star of Homeland, that he goes to the Oval Office
and " pretends "
to work , but, he watches tv , instead.
The 2008 interview to 60 Minutes just after the election, where Michelle said
she had to " make " Obama do chores.
That he had to be " forced " to wash dishes
and make " his " bed.
The October 2012 Vanity Fair article
that described all the hours he spends playing basketball each week that are never publicized.
But, most importantly, Obama himself has often
admitted that he´s lazy.
In " Dreams From My Father " on pages 94 and 95 he recounted a fight with his mother over his admitted laziness.
Obama told his mother he planned
on being lazy his whole life.
December 2011 interview with Barbara Walters :
"You know, it´s interesting. There is a deep down - underneath all the work I do
- I think there´s a laziness in me...it´s
probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii..."
Obama is the Commander in Chief in wartime and during terrible economic times and his lack
of any type of work ethic makes his laziness pathological.

In both Obama and Powell I see racism, it´s just that they were both chosen by white people as well as blacks and so now they bit the hands of those who nurtured them, by creating class warfare between minorities and white people, if the GOP seems to have less of a plantation mentality for minorities it´s because they still believe in "freedom" in spite of their desperate gyrations to avoid being called racists by the stealthy race baiting, class dividing, gun grabbing socialist set in the Democrat party and some blacks who believe themselves the distributors of others hard earned money and goods. They do however believe in distribution to the other elites who support their filthy oppressive form of racist government.

Racist attacks against Obama? Really? Prove that assertion.

The problem is that the left has defined any disagreement with black liberation idealology and socialism as racist. They merely make the charge that republicans are racists, and the press reports it as fact.

To think, I was so enamored of this guy that I wrote him in as a nominee for president in ´96. (Yes, I´m sorry to say, I was one of those who saddled us w/4 more years of Clinton.) What a bullet was dodged backed then, and what a puke he has turned out to be.

As McCain, Hagel, Powell, and even John ("I served in Vietnam") Kerry prove: an honorable military record is helpful, but not determinate, in qualifying for civilian office. The former requires bravery, discipline, and duty. The latter adds requirements for vision, perspective, and intuition.

It´s obviously difficult for black people to rise above their blackness. It´s ingrained in them in most homes and communities where they are raised. And it´s promoted by most of the black community leaders, who continually tell their people that they are victims.

Powell is still guilt ridden over his UN presentation and he´s been trying to redeem himself with the left ever since. His endorsement of Obama in ´08 was a huge step.

I´m pretty sure Powell got most of his promotions under republican presidents so if they were racists,why would they do that?

The liberals simply don´t have the intellect to separate race from behavior.I´d be more than happy to see Col. West president.

#1 and #2 are right on the money. Colin Powell has always struck me as an egomaniac who needs ´everyone´ (well, almost) to love, admire, adore and worship him. He never ran for public office because he would have had to make tough decisions and take strong stands on issues. He much prefers strutting around and being seen at all the right parties and functions. He´s been on my "----" list as long as I can remember. Except for his military service, he´s a big zero in my book.

Let´s be honest. Powell has been masquerading as white for forty some years. Now his true colors are coming out.
Ready?
He´s BLACK - always has been, always will be. You can´t separate blacks from blacks. They may be very violent and all that but they stick together.

´Dark vein of intolerance´ isn´t a phrase one just thinks up on the spot. MTP producers huddled with Powell about the subject of this week´s show: "The Republican Party Sucks". Colin obliged, wrote himself up some nasty race baiting sound bites, and then proceeded to spew them.

President George W. Bush gave Powell an opportunity to make a name for himself but he is proving to be another Judas - how much silver did Obama promise him? Judas betrayed with a kiss, Powell lied and did not stand up to who he really was and what he stood for. Now, we see he is another Obama!

Sad day for America when a man needs to destroy someone else to make himself look good!

America deserves better than what Powell had t offer and this proves it!

Wrong -mr powell - we have no respect for the President or for you, no matter what color you and he are. There are plenty of minority folks we DO have respect for, and they are not just blacks, starting with the governor of La. Bobby Jindal, an excellent official and person, and
a multitude of others of all ethnicities and races. You, Sir, are unfortunately a racist. and as a former military member, that is truly sad.

What Powell and the vast majority of Blacks don´t "get" is that the GOP is a party of ideas, not a party of buddies. I have listened to many Black leaders and pundits on various shows and most of them are frankly in la la land, nowhere near reality. So, NO, I can´t accept their ideas and I don´t want to be their buddy. When you don´t go along with the progressive herd, you are labeled ignorant.

Baloney.

I don´t need Powell´s approval to have different ideas than him and his progressive crowd and it doesn´t make me ignorant. I understand what they are talking about, I simply KNOW it is wrong. Not FEEL it is wrong, KNOW it is wrong.

On the other hand, the GOP does need to understand that if it wants to make any progress it needs to learn to craft a message that convinces enough of those that function through feelings and cliques to side with the GOP for elections. Right now, that battle is being lost.

We don´t like his white half either, MR. Powell.

What did the Dem party do to conservative black Congressman Allen West? "Defeated" him via voter fraud.

I wonder if the Affirmative Action corporal realizes that he´s only summoned from the plantation when he´s needed to trash the GOP on network TV.

Colin Powell is pathetic. And a Democrat who infiltrated the GOP.

An ungrateful negro who got where he was due to Ronald Reagan´s largess and who continues to bite the hand that has fed him.

Someone should explain to the General that Obama has set race relations back 50 years all by himself.

Sen. Landrieu takes heat for reenacting
Senate hearing in campaign ad
Fox News, by Stephanie McNeal    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 10:06:50 AM     Post Reply
Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz adeptly sidestepped questions about how he´d fare among conservative Republicans in a South Carolina presidential primary. But he did say another Democrat in the White House would spell doom and gloom. "Eight more years of this, I don´t know it´s something this country comes back from," he said.Cruz, widely seen as the conservative face of last year´s government shutdown over funding what Republicans call "Obamacare," spent Tax Day talking to free enterprise advocates at The Citadel. "Liberty is under assault like never before," he told the crowd. "It seems this president is going down the Bill

This gathering in the desert is no Coachella — it looks more like a full scale Allah-palooza. A new video popping up on Jihadi Web sites shows some of al Qaeda most dangerous terrorists smiling and glad-handing each other at a terrorist conclave in Yemen, CNN reported. The video, which features al?Qaeda crown prince ­Nasir al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fellow terrorists in the arid hinterlands, is being analyzed by US authorities. It was unclear if the CIA was aware of the conference, which could have been an inviting target for an anti-terror drone strike, CNN said. Al-Wuhayshi, the leader

CHARLESTON, S.C. — It didn’t take much for Ted Cruz to bring a crowd of conservatives to its feet here. By the time the Texas Republican senator finished speaking Tuesday night, an adoring audience hailed Cruz and his no-compromise, combative style of conservatism that has made him the scourge of the GOP establishment but a hero of the tea party. “Liberty is under assault today like never before,” Cruz said, pacing the stage like a televangelist. But even in deep-red South Carolina, a well-received speech full of Cruz’s signature flair is no guarantee that the firebrand politician could win the

New Census Questions Will Change
ObamaCare Findings; Networks Ignore

New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday. The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however. In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
