Why The Next President
Will Probably Be Black Too

Buzzfeed, by Ben Smith

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/4/2013 10:42:30 AM

If there is anything approaching an iron law of American politics, it´s this: The next president will be a member of the same race as the current one. It´s a rule that has held through 42 of 43 transfers of power. And there´s every reason to think it will hold through the next one. The next president will, in all likelihood, be African-American, most likely one of the two African Americans who would make anybody´s list of the top 10 contenders for the Democratic nomination. This is, obviously, the sort of statistical

I would think the opposite. Obeyme´s attitude, race baiting and the like has damaged the stature of his race, imho. He should be ashamed, but whatever it takes to punish those mean whiteys.

The news is littered with red herrings. Only one thing counts: Is the majority of the people benefiting from government largess or is the majority paying the bills. Right now and for the next few years at least, the majority are benefiting. As long as they all go out and vote, they win every time. It´s a war between people wanting instant gratification and people who want to delay gratification.

The article is well stated and its premise very much a distinct possibility. Black voters now exercise great influence in the nominating process for the Democrats. If the Republicans continue to nominate candidates like we have in the past two elections then the Democrats have a chance to win in 2016 with a black candidate. Only if the black voters decide to give a white Democrat a shot at the nomination will someone like Hillary Clinton be nominated. The problem for the Democrats is that they have now painted themselves in a corner in regards to their most important voters. Nominate who we want or split your base and lose to a Republican.

There is history to dispute this claim. The same thing happened to the Southern Democrat party. The black vote nominated black candidates and drove whites way. Oh, but that is the racist south people say. No, it was actually the far left agenda of black candidates. And that far left agenda is what eventually killed the Dems in the South. And where non whites were conservative, they were elected (black, non native Indian and others). This will happen elsewhere as more people begin to feel the destructive forces of Dem rule.

Article has photo of next black president but does not mention her name; Moochelle Obama.

The Mooch will run if Barry´s executive order permitting him to run for a 3rd term is overturned by the Supreme Court. Barry will argue, with the help of Georgetown University´s law school and the NY Times, that the 22nd Amendment as well as Constitution isn´t applicable to him because it was written by old white men.

The Mooch will begin to discuss how it is so important to women, minorities and the less privileged to keep moving forward with Barry´s policies. "This is not the time to abandon what Barack Obama started, but to keep his wonderful vision in place for all Americans."

Since no proof of US citizenship is not required, how about Robert Mugabee?

A president exprienced in destroying the economy of his country (even moreso than Obama), by being a leader in a movement against the white minority producers.

Obama could only hope to realize the level of redistribution that has taken place in Zimbabwe under Mugabee´s leadership.

For my efforts he put me on the DNC mailing list. Don´t think it will be Hillary; after another 4 years she´ll look like a Vampire at sunrise. Of course, back in 2007 I laughed at the idea of a freshman senator from Illinois running for POTUS who´s only accomplishment is he´s half black. And look what happened.

Chances are that from now on the Democrats will always have a liberal to socialist black politician on their ticket. You must always remember that the Democrats cannot win without a very substantial black vote in the general election.

If the Democrats were to put down a black candidate in favor of a white liberal in their primaries, there is a good chance that enough black voters would feel slighted enough to stay home on general election day causing the Democrats to loose the election. Goes to show how a small minority of voters, most of them takers and certainly not makers, can end up running the country in the future, as long as they stick together in a one party voting bloc.

Deval Patrick and Corey Freaking Booker are who he has in mind while noting that no Republican black potential candidates exist.

Just keep on thinking that.

Allen West, Sen. Scott, Herman Cain and a dozen others don´t exist ?

#17 is right on the money. I live in the deep South and the Democrats have disappeared as a statewide party. This is the corner the national Democrats are putting themselves into. Their black candidates will be so far left that they can be defeated if the Republicans cure their dysfunction in national elections.

Never forget that Bill Clinton adamantly laid claim to being America´s first black President in 1994. Or that Barack Obama is at least as white as he is black. It´s all bullsh--, promulgated by the kneepad media who serve The Won.

Why Obama Scares Me
Creators Syndicate, by Mona Charen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/21/2014 8:32:16 AM     Post Reply
The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits.

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

In early February this year, I wrote a column for The Hill in which I tried to talk Democrats off the cliff. I warned them against having such a gloomy outlook for November. To tell you the truth, though, when I saw the result from the Florida special election last Tuesday, I asked myself where my straight razor was because I thought I might need it. But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Next Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning constitutional challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate brought by Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties. (snip) Neither company objects to birth control, per se. Indeed, both provide coverage to their employees for most types of contraception. Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals. Such a decision, progressives shriek, would constitute a victory for the dark forces behind the “war on women,” erode employee protections against discrimination, and dramatically reduce access to health care

This Wednesday, an article in the New York Times reported that between 2008 and 2012 the number of adults taking medications for ADHD has increased by 53%, and that in the case of young American adults, it has nearly doubled.

Over the course of my 50-year-long career in behavioral neurology and treating patients with ADHD, it has been in the past decade that I have seen these diagnoses truly skyrocket.

Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Los Angeles — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it´s outrageous that the country is even debating the subject. Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
