Black Intellectuals Have
Sold Their Souls

New York Times, by Eddie S. Glaude Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 2/5/2013 8:58:09 AM

Black academics don’t have a “special obligation” to speak to broader social and political issues. What we have witnessed over the last few decades is the increasing professionalization of this particular class of persons – where the object of their scholarly interests range across a number of subjects that aren’t reducible to questions of race. These individuals stand alongside those who work explicitly on racial matters, but their work doesn’t necessarily reach beyond the confines of a specialized academic community. The political significance of their ideas has been weakened or worse, banished to the shadows,

Another N.Y. Slimes article I will never read. After 10 years of deep thought I still can´t think of a single reason why I would want to read anything written by the liberal propagandists at the N.Y. Slimes. I have a bottle of champagne on ice to celebrate the day the worthless rag declares bankruptcy.

I recognize only two black intellectuals, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. If they take a position, you can depend on a constitutional basis.

Add to the list of intellectuals who are black, the name of Dr. Walter Broadnax, former deputy secretary of HHS during Bill Clinton´s reign, former college president, now a professor at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University.

The writer actually does a fair job of pointing the intellectual hypocrisy of "authentically black intellectuals", such as #1 reminds us, Cornell West. He does not, however, either discuss black intellectuals who do not drink at the trough of liberalism. Nor does he point out why the damage these "authentically black intellectuals" have inflicted and continue to inflict on average black Americans.

Black intellectuals are 1) black first, 2) intellectual second.

Just like black Christians are 1) black first, 2) Christian second.

...the majority of "black intellectuals" are affirmative action quacks advancing the white liberal democrat plantation agenda -keeping blacks enslaved to welfare- and guaranteeing black votes... the real intellectuals, who happen to be black, condemn the democrat´s plantation destruction to the black community and are insulted, excoriated, slandered, criticized, threatened and smeared with horrible vulgar names...the cleanest being "uncle tom"...I love and respect these brave men and women who speak the truth and actually risk their well being by angering the violent democrat machine.

Mystery Plane In Tehran Belongs
To Overseas Client, Bank Says
BuzzFeed, by Rosie Gray    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

Hollywood, Lawyer Says

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

Mitt Romney returns to political stage as

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of
disabled people in pre-Easter ritual

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:28:50 AM     Post Reply
What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Fox News Poll: Voters say Obama covering

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
