Colin Powell (again)
condemns Republicans

Washington Times [DC], by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/21/2013 12:50:09 PM

Self-described Republican and former Secretary of State Colin Powell marked the second swearing-in of President Obama Monday with more harsh words for his fellow party members, during separate appearances on MSNBC and ABC. To Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” report, Mr. Powell criticized the GOP’s immigration platform, and questioned why the party has shifted so far right. “The Republican Party should be a party that says, ‘We want everybody to vote,’ and make it easier to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party,” he said, according to Politico. “The [GOP] has shifted dramatically

I´m so proud that I never bought into this RINO´s spiel. If I don´t see some record of advocacy of conservative principles of one sort or the other, I don´t buy it. Mere membership in the party or an administration are meaningless conservative credentials. Colon, [sic] if you think the Right is the problem in this country, you are a fool´s fool. Start [sic] telling the young AfAm men of America to marry their baby mamas -- at least one of them.

And, of course, no Republican can tell this affirmative action general to shut up without being called a racist. Powell is the rule, not the exception, for most of the civil rights black generation that, by any standards, have been given opportunities not on merit but, by the color of their skin. From young to old, they have nothing but resentment toward their nation and, in Powell´s case, his political party. Our chickens have come home to roost.

Colin Powell is not a Republican and has no business calling himself one. Colin Powell is an affirmative action baby who prospered in the Reagan/Bush defense build-up. I thank him for his service, but politically he is a left wing Democrat and has no business being taken seriously by anyone in terms of commenting on the state of the GOP.

Colin, you idiot. We do NOT want everyone to vote. We only want people who have a vested interest in the United States and are willing to vote for what is best for our nation and people.

Don´t need Islamic votes - they vote for what´s best for themselves or Islam most of the time. Don´t need no welfare votes - they vote for more gimmees for themselves. Don´t need no crony-business man votes - they vote themselves (thru their companies) more from government coffers. Don´t need no socialist votes - they vote socialism - every time. I could go on but... you get the idea.

I for one don´t want everyone voting. I want all adult citizens to have the right to vote but if you don´t care enough to vote unless someone bribes you with a pack of smokes, I don´t want you voting.

And let´s dispell the myth of the Republican party shifting to the right. Just once can we challenge that with a definition of what is meant by "far right" and by what metric the Republicans has moved from a point less consistent with that definition to one more so. This garbage keeps getting repreated and accepted without challenge.

Lincoln had it right. The former slaves should have been shipped out of this country. Slavery was a terrible chapter however too many could never get beyond it and both those who were never slaves nor slave owner are paying the price. Blacks in power today see every issue through the prism of black retribution. Putting people with such an axe to grind in power is dangerous as they are blinded to to most everything else.
The sins of the father are on constant display as communism creeps in to every crevice and crack of our nation. Frank Marshall Davis, Obama´s evil "mentor" must feel such satisfaction...as much as any pedophile can.

Its just petty jealousy. He can´t come out against a "brother" so blame the GOP.

And, I did see how George Bush II, appointed you to high places. I do see your true colors now, and I now realize that you are one of those affirmative action recipients of the first order. Your colors aren´t pretty, Colin Powell. Get lost!

The left would call us racist, #12, but I agree with you. I have NEVER been a fan of Africa, African people, nor African culture. Furthermore, to make me a super-racist, sexist, and homophobe(to use the lefts favorite attacks against white conservatives) I often daydream, and wonder what my beloved America would be like without blacks, Hispanics, lefty women and homosexuals......Ever think about that? I do....especially lately, in this Arab-influenced administration of Kenyan Barry Soetoro Arabs, Muslims, avowed commies, lefty ditz women,stoopid white men like Biden and America-hating Kerry, and fat Supreme court judges...

Colin Powell should be served on a dinner plate to Chris Christie, and after dinner Christie can walk the plank and go down to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and stay there! There, thats a good start! Purge!

Powell repeats the false meme that Republicans have shifted to the Right. The reality is that Democrats have stampeded to the extreme Left, while Republicans have not changed at all. Ignorant people who are not paying attention might be partly forgiven for failing to realize where the change is actually occurring. Powell is not one of them, and his remarks are disingenuous.

There seems to be something seriously wrong and incongruent with this man´s public political pronouncements. He is not doing himself any favors by pretending to be a Republican while acting, talking and voting like a Democrat. He is not being honest.

At some time in the past Powell may have been a good general. I am unqualified to say. I am willing to take others´ opinion that he was. Yet Powell gave up all pretense of being an honest citizen or especially a Republican when he sat on his hands with knowledge of the who, what & where of the origination of the Plame Affair, while the president who entrusted him with power and position twisted slowly in the wind and his Vice-President´s Chief of Staff was prosecuted to the hilt under false pretenses after the prosecutor conspired with Powell for a solid year & a half of incredible angst, political intrigue and expense to hide their certain early knowledge almost from Day One that Richard Armitage, Powell´s head deputy and buddy at State, was the leaker they pretended was a mystery for no other reason than to cause the President political damage. But when that became wide knowledge, he was understood to me to be the perfidious toad anyone can see acting out today once again rather than the honorable man of high virtue he tries to paint himself. His actions, or inactions in this case, speak louder than the garbage he spouts as a self-proclaimed Republican.

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

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

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
