Michael Eric Dyson Calls for
Whites to Have an I.R.A. –
‘Individual Reparations Account’

Cybercast News Service, by Mark Judge

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2017 1:24:06 PM

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

And you thought these arrogant, obnoxious racists couldn´t get worse!! This is just stunning! I´m sure that Americans want their hard earned money given to feral animals like those in Chicago, BLM, etc. NOT. I´m sick and tired of their victimhood BS! This guy is certifiable and they act like he is so brilliant. ´You ain’t got to ask the government??´ It´s enough to make you puke.

Considering my family immigrated here just prior to WWI, we owe them nothing, as does anyone else. Consider welfare your reparations payment.

I have no problem with this idea. Let anyone who thinks they owe reparations create such an account. Then they can stop trying to get the government to force people who never wanted, or had, slaves to give money to people who never were slaves in reparation for the fact that some (a very small number) people once owned slaves in the U.S.

Money is not the answer. Uncontrolled and unlimited underclass breeding is the culprit. Making babies for an 18 year income stream, a complete lack of parental guidance and avoidance of worthwhile educational standards and you got what we GOT!!! Just saying.

Sir. Your command of the English language tells me you should have paid attention in English class".
As far as me making reparations to people who had nothing to do with being a slave, I can only say, go jump into a lake.
I was not alive at the time of slavery and neither were they.

We´ve been held as captive slaves all over the streets of America for decades into the 21st century. We fear for our very lives because blacks have criminalized our lives with intimidation, ceaseless demands and violence.

Tell me, how many blacks would have gone to war and died for whites in the Civil War if the situation had been reversed?

I´ve been making "donations" to minorities my whole life for things which I had no responsibility for. Slavery, Jim Crow, segregation: all brought to us by the demoncrats, who want everyone else to pay for their actions, good or bad. I´m done making "donations" of my time and effort, in lost opportunities, employment, promotions, and scholarships I never got because of Affirmative Action. I finally have a well-paying job and I´m keeping it all. Go beg from someone else, if you are too stupid or lazy to get an education and a job.

Considering my family immigrated here after 1900 and I´ve had a substantial portion of my earnings confiscated and redistributed to what government statistics say are still society´s dregs because of crime (I have been armed-robbed twice by black "youths"), fatherless families, and work ethics,
MY take is that black Americans OWE ME for all that their elected agents have stolen from ME.

I´m confused. Somebody please explain who deserves a share of my retirement fund:
The descendants of those who worked on my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great Grandfather´s farm? Those people worked hard, as did many-greats Grandfather. When they were freed, well before the civil war, most kept our unusual family name, many accepted the plot of land and home they were offered, the training in a livelihood.Many began businesses and trades that supported them and their offspring comfortably. Some of their descendants became famous and very wealthy, as professionals, athletes, actors and scholars. They, and we, did well. Their so-distant cousins back in Africa who didn´t get captured by their warring neighbors, sold to Arab slavers, transported by Portuguese sailors, sold again by Dutch traders, how are they getting along these days? Still living in mud huts, warring with neighboring tribes, dying of pestilence and starvation? Hello???
Y´all are very welcome.

I believe in Reparations but not because of slavery. Reparations should be paid to Vietnam Veterans who risked their lives only to have politicians pull the plug on the war.For a start all these individuals can be readily identified unlike "blacks" who might not have any connection to slavery or have just an ounce of black blood or whatever. We Vietnam Vets were screwed royally by being sent to that war and then spit upon when we returned. I would say that $1,000,000 tax free per Vietnam tour would suffice.

They´ve destroyed so much that was built by good people, workers who built solid brick structures that were meant to last forever but the ghetto-dwelling minority types RUINED THEM ALL, have you ever walked through a black neighborhood in Chicago or Detroit??????Seen what they´ve done to these wonderful brick buildings?

Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, Ferguson, Atlanta, Watts, LA and Baltimore for starters.....feel free to add.

I´ll submit that any reparations that are owed are owed by YOU NEGROES with the 73% illegitimate birth rate, the violence, the ignorance, the ebonics, the rap, the knock-out game,Al Sharpton, the Mall riots, the 4 blacks who just tortured that poor white kid!!!!!!!!!!!!

If they ALL left today I wouldn´t miss one of them...I mean it.

Obituary Attacking Alan Colmes
Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Kugle    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 7:35:56 PM     Post Reply
The liberal-leaning news site Slate published an obituary Thursday attacking former Fox News contributor Alan Colmes. Colmes passed away on Thursday at the age of 66 after a battle with an illness. (Snip) Fox News honored Colmes with a touching tribute. Slate took a different approach when remembering Colmes. Its obituary was titled, "Alan Colmes, Buffoon and Patsy, Was Fox News´ Original Liberal Weakling." The article attacked Colmes for being the "nice liberal" on Fox News. Colmes was the most absurd, useless, and mocked television personality in America for many years, precisely because he was nice. In the context of

On Thursday, The New York Times launched a new marketing campaign by releasing a TV ad set to air during Sunday’s Academy Awards with the tag line, “The truth is more important than ever,” seemingly taking a jab at President Donald Trump. Given the paper’s blatant liberal bias and willingness to report fake news stories, the notion of the Times being the arbiter of the “truth” is laughable.

Organizers at the conference where President Trump spoke Friday confiscated Russian flags with Trump´s name on them that were handed out before his speech. Photos from the Conservative Political Action Conference showed Russian flags with "Trump" in the middle blue stripe being waved by people in the crowd as Trump spoke. The flags were handed out before the speech but were confiscated while the speech took place. Reports from the conference indicated organizers told people with the flags that if they were seen waving them during Trump´s speech they would be kicked out of the conference. One of the activists,

Obama revamp of federal bureaucracy

Fox News, by George Russell    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 10:13:23 AM     Post Reply
One of former President Barack Obama’s pet projects -- to drag federal bureaucracy into the digital age -- morphed into a rogue operation that disregarded information security policies, used unauthorized software and information systems on government networks, and exposed sensitive information to potential hackers, according to a watchdog report. Many of the most egregious security violations took place long after the Obama administration’s 2014 admission of one of the worst cyber-security losses in history: the theft by China-based intruders of 4.2 million personnel files from its Office of Personnel Management -- a revelation that set off a wide-ranging review of

Tucker Carlson -VS- DNC Senior
Adviser “I’m Every Woman Argument”…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/24/2017 9:25:30 AM     Post Reply
Zac Petkanas, Democrat National Committee Senior Adviser, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s TV show to explain the DNC position that a persons gender is what they say it is. The argument is fraught with downstream impact, because if a person’s gender is what they say it is at any given moment in time – then there’s immediately no such thing as Sexism or gender driven ERA laws. You cannot be sued for hiring all males, because some of those males can instantaneously be women, and you’re not allowed to ask about their gender when hiring…. because it’s a protected category… see where

Billionaire Pritzker Tells Men to Use
Women’s Bathrooms to Protest Trump
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/23/2017 10:15:03 PM     Post Reply
A billionaire Democratic megadonor, who is exploring a run for governor, encouraged men to use women´s bathrooms on Wednesday sparking criticism from transgender advocates and politicians. J.B. Pritzker, the billionaire heir whose father co-founded Hyatt hotels, floated the idea of switching bathrooms in the wake of President Donald Trump´s executive order reversing an Obama policy that could have stripped federal funds from schools that maintain separate bathroom facilities based on sex. "As a protest against Trump´s rescinding protections for trans kids, everyone should use the other gender´s bathroom today!" he tweeted at 8:36 a.m. (Snip) The tweet immediately provoked criticism from liberals.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ´resistance´ against President Donald Trump.

Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents
