Florida official Brenda Snipes: racism
´probably´ a factor in attacks against me

Guardian [UK], by David Smith

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 11/17/2018 2:32:09 PM

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor of Broward county, was condemned by Republicans and Democrats after failing to submit tallies in the US Senate race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson on schedule. (Snip) In a short interview, Snipes, 75, said: “You know, the protesters have been claiming stuff all week so whatever they’re doing, that’s what they’re doing. That’s what they feel like they need to do.”

Comments:
When caught and above the law, get loud. Why not? Works fine for Hillary, and Lurch is also very vocal of late.

Brenda, give it up or we’ll think you are Stacey Abrams homely sister with bleach-fried hair.

The consensus on you so far is that you were simply the wrong person for the job. For a long time. I’d let the racism go and enjoy incompetence over deliberate cheating...

If you did your job honestly then there wouldn´t be a problem. You deliberately prevented the Repub vote monitors from the polling stations so you broke the law. You got caught trying to count extra ballots. You have done this in the recent past and everyone knows how Broward & Palm counties exhibit gross incompetence (maybe it´s not an accident?) and can´t make deadlines that other couties in Florida -having just recovered from catastrophic hurricane damage met with no problem. Racisim has nothing to do with it, Brenda. You really are just an idiot, end of story.

The TV series, Sanford and Son, comes to mind.
Fred had an argument with his son, Lamont, and decided to retire from the junkyard business.
So he decided to call the Social Security office to find out how much his monthly check would be.
He dialed the number for Social Security, it rang, and before he said a word, the woman at Social Security said, "Social Security, please hold."
Fred turned to the camera and said, "If I was white, they wouldn´t have put me on hold."
Part of being black in America is the sorting out of slights, imagined or real.
That is sad.
Snipes is so gloriously incompetent - a language teacher who was put into the position by Jeb Bush - that she probably could not successfully rig an election. She trips over herself.

Democrats have been "printing up" their Race Cards since Obama´s election. They have had, and will continue to have, a huge and ready supply to spread around when the need arises, and it ALWAYS arises for these unscrupulous clowns. If racism is a widespread problem in America, Obama would never have been elected. Democrats know it, but the racism lie (and the misogyny lie) works so well on the liberal elite that it will never go away. Snipes is truly a disgrace, but the Race Card is the distraction she dangles for the elite and the media to consume with perpetual (faux) outrage.

A man allegedly shot a police officer — and now taxpayers have to help pay his medical bill. The city of Omaha has been hit with a $239,670.63 bill after a 36-year-old gang member needed treatment while in police custody, according to The Omaha World-Herald.

Chick-fil-A is on fire.

Ismail is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan. The FBI says Ismail posted numerous other messages of support for the Islamic State and did searches on how to build bombs. There is no evidence he actually had live explosives. The affidavit also says Ismail

The father of Jakelin Caal, who died in United States Customs and Border Protection custody, has reportedly hired a pair of attorneys and is challenging the Department of Homeland Security´s claims of how his daughter died. Nery Gilberto Caal released a statement, through attorneys, on Saturday, claiming that he and his daughter — whom Border Patrol says died of prolonged hunger and dehydration — were properly fed, and that they had not spent days in the desert before declaring their intent to seek asylum at an official border crossing in New Mexico last week.

AFP reported Saturday that “experts” say “Western powers fighting Islamist groups around the globe are condemned to a never-ending battle if they only tackle the symptoms and not the underlying causes of jihadist insurgency.” That is true, but these establishment “experts” have no idea of the actual underlying causes, and are recommending the same counterterror remedies that have failed again and again. “The West is on the road to winning all the battles and losing the war,” warns Katherine Zimmerman, who wrote a recent report for the American Enterprise Institute. On that, Zimmerman is actually right. But she and her

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declared President Donald Trump was not going to get the U.S.-Mexico border wall “in any form.” “President Trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall in the House or the Senate. He is not going to get the wall in any form. Even the House which is a majority Republican, they don’t have the votes for his $5 billion wall plan. Ryan, afraid of what’s going to happen, sent all the House home until Wednesday night, a day and a

There are stirrings of discussion these days in philosophical circles about the prospect of human extinction. This should not be surprising, given the increasingly threatening predations of climate change. In reflecting on this question, I want to suggest an answer to a single question, one that hardly covers the whole philosophical territory but is an important aspect of it. Would human extinction be a tragedy? To get a bead on this question, let me distinguish it from a couple of other related questions. I’m not asking whether the experience of humans coming to an end would be a bad thing.

Joe Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent who has backed Republicans, has found friends in yet another party: the ruling Communist Party of the People´s Republic of China. The former "conscience of the Senate" has been hired to represent China´s ZTE telecommunications company, which is basically a front organization for Chinese intelligence services. ZTE is under pressure in light of overdue U.S. government efforts to prevent it from entrenching a stronger position in the U.S. economy. With the U.S. now in a new cold war with Beijing, no former U.S. official, let alone a foreign policy hawk like Lieberman, should be serving ZTE.

An actress and model claims she had a clandestine eight-year affair with Woody Allen that began when she was 16 years old and underage – and included threesomes with the director and Mia Farrow in his penthouse, according to a new report. Babi Christina Engelhardt, now 59, told The Hollywood Reporter that she first caught the then-41-year-old Allen’s attention in October 1976 at famed eatery Elaine’s on the Upper East Side, where she dropped a note with her phone number. “Since you’ve signed enough autographs, here’s mine!” the star-struck girl scribbled. Allen soon invited Engelhardt

Do Americans really worry
about the non-shutdown
‘government shutdown’?

Chuck Schumer clearly thinks that he’s got a winning issue with blaming President Trump for a prospective “government shutdown” Friday, if no budget bill is passed that includes $5 billion for border wall improvements. Since he promises that no such money will be forthcoming from the Senate, he obviously anticipates the public reacting in horror over the Christmas holidays as federal employees labeled “non-essential” stay home. But Rep. Thomas Massey, a libertarian-leaning GOP House member from Kentucky, has published an amazing graph that shows how meaningless this “disaster” really is for almost everybody:

Death of The Weekly Standard
Signals Rebirth of the Right

Neoconservatism is dead, long live American conservatism. That’s what I thought when I learned The Weekly Standard would be shuttered by longtime owner Clarity Media. The Standard was a creature of a particular time and place—the 1990s, the Bush-Clinton ascendancy, and Washington, D.C.’s insular, self-referential political class. As such, it never really fit within the broad flow of historic American conservatism. It was always, and intentionally, something different. So perhaps the magazine’s opposition to Donald Trump, his voters, and the America First agenda should come as no surprise. Max Boot described the magazine as “a redoubt of neoconservatism” in 2002
