Rapper Chuck D. On CNN: ‘Since
Reagan And Bush, There’s Been
Nothing But Guns And Drugs In
The Black Community’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/26/2013 12:49:46 PM

Hip hop artist Chuck D., famous for his work with the group Public Enemy, appeared on CNN with Carol Costello to discuss the impact that the slaying of Trayvon Martin had on the nation one year later. Chuck D. told Costello, that when he was growing up, there were no guns in the black community. However, after 1980 and the rise of the Ronald Reagan/George Bush-era, he says that “there’s been nothing but guns and drugs in the black community.” Costello asked Chuck D. for his thoughts on the killing of Martin.

Comments:
Oh sigh. And the filthy, misogynistic, gangsta lyrics glorifying murder, rape and crime had no effect on the black youths in this country. CNN sure has improved since Jeff Zucker has arrived. s/o

Stooping to quote some faceless black huckster most of us have never heard of? Who most likely advocates violence and hatred of whitey in each and every ´song´ he ´sings´?

So a lack of personal responsibility and accountability have nothing to do with the increases in crime and drugs. That answers my question. I didn´t know that it was all Reagan´s fault. Bush I understood, but Reagan? Geesh! /s

I know exactly where Chuck D grew up. I grew up in the town right next to his (North Merrick). I know the area very well. I don´t recall Ronald Reagan or either George Bush ever being there, nevermind handing out guns and drugs.

However, I do recall that Roosevelt (where he´s from) was considered to be a dangerous place for law abiding folks to be well before Ronald Reagan was ever elected president, and definitely before (if Chuck D is to be believed) Reagan would sneak out of the White House, take the Metroliner to Penn Station, jump on an LIRR train to Freeport and stroll around at night handing out pistols and Crack cocaine like Santa Claus.

And the fact that thug (c)rap became most popular during the Clinton free love 90´s era had nothing to do with it either, huh???!!!

And oh yeah - did the guns and violence stop during Clinton´s terms? And then pick up where it left off after Reagan?

And which Bush?

Forget it, I don´t really care what a two-bit no-name Obama-supporting fool has to say.

And a huge percentage of the "Black Community" has, enthusiastically and without the slightest hint of self-restraint, fully embraced both guns and drugs.

Also, nothing but degenerate and violent "Hip Hop" as well.

He may be right, but not for the reason he thinks. The ´Great Society,´ which subsidized out of wedlock births and fatherless homes, had its first generation come of age during the 1980s. The guns and drugs coincided with Reagan/Bush I, but Chick D. needs to dig a little deeper.

My husband and I haven´t been able to visit the neighborhoods where our parents grew up on the west and south sides of Chicago since the ´60´s.

That´s when they pulled our grandparents out and moved them in with our families.

You ask yourself, both about King Hussein Obama and this fool, you ask yourself, is he that stoopid? Or is he just a compulsive liar?

Stupid or liar?

Call me a racist. I dont care. Too many APIA´s (African People in America) for me. They hate whitey and they hate my beloved America!!! Look at all the trouble they cause, all the stoopid things they say and do, all the murders and violence and billions of dollars in wasted government aid.If the "good" ones wont speak out against them, like the silent Muslims wont speak out against terrorism, then doesnt that make THEM the real racists? The real whitey-haters? I´ve got an answer to solve it all but again, you´d call me a racist.

The word "rap" is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. So many stoopid people, even dumbass young white idiots, think that it is "music", when it really isnt music at all, is a lot of angry yelling, posturing, posing, and suggesting much violence, mostly against white guys like ME. I HATE it! This stoopid fool doesnt hate Reagan and Bush as much as I hate HIM. If Civil war 2 ever breaks out, look out man!

It started with Kennedy and Johnson. I grew up in Oakland Calif. in the 50´s and 60´s.

Just like #18 said, people who lived in a nice neighborhood, were forced to move because of the wave of lawlessness that took over. Retired people were attacked in their homes so often the Tribune wouldn´t even report it. If a crime was reported on they wouldn´t print the description of the prep.

This all was happening when the Black Panthers were giving out coloring books to the kiddies, showing the police as pigs, and attacking black people. They would call in a crime in progress somewhere in the Oakland hills, and then when the police helicopter would fly over, they would start shooting at the helicopter. Now my old neighborhood is called "the killing zone". Nothing new here.

This is character is actually on to something - but it is not what he thinks. For not too many years before Reagan and Bush, foul mouthed, obscene "artists" like him would have been arrested and charged with public indecency. And the producers and distributors of their trash would have met the same fate. It was simply unthinkable to permit such toxic, antisocial garbage free access to the public space and the minds of children.

But thanks to the Left´s fearless defense of free speech -unfortunately restricted to pornography, bad language, public obscenity, burning American flags and mocking Christianity- the longstanding legal barriers against the values and language of the Chuck D.´s of the nation were abolished. The rest is history.

Guys like Chuck D. are dim bulbs who cleaned up by poisoning and degrading the culture, especially that of the most vulnerable, at-risk children and neighborhoods. They are not the only ones to cash in on this depravity. A self-respecting society would never have allowed them to get away with what they have done. But now, adding insult to injury, Chuck D. -a real piece of work, someone for America and the human race to be proud of- blames Republicans for the consequences of his dirty, nasty, antisocial work.

Way to go, Chuck.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

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.

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.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

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
