Joel Pollak: Mainstream Media
Don´t Understand Mandela
Embraced Constraints on Power

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/6/2013 11:37:13 AM

Pollak said that because of Mandela´s embrace of reconciliation, a South Africa many thought was going to "erupt into a racial civil war" transitioned from apartheid peacefully. He also said that Mandela later rejected the violent aspects of the African National Congress and the more socialist aspects of his past and ended up obeying the constitution. Pollak said Mandela even "subjected himself to the will of the courts" while he was in power to set an example that he was not above the constitution. And like George Washington, Mandela, Pollak noted, accepted the constraints put on him and stepped down

Comments:
This is an extremely informative article and interview. The interview by Mark Levin of Joel Pollak (who was born in South Africa and lived there) is one of the most informative I have seen. I was not aware of the interesting background of Mr. Pollak.

That is why, even though he was a terrorist, Mandela is and was a far better man than Obama ever will be. Do you think Obama will conveniently ignore the fact that Mandela obeyed the will of the SA constitution?

If Obama wants to be regarded as some kind of American Mandela, maybe he should start obeying OUR Constitution for a change.

Even Fox News is going crazy over Mandela. Jenna Lee has been gushing for what feels like hours.

The O´s are going to South Africa to get some more photo ops. They´ll have to hurry as they must get back in time to vacation in Hawaii over the holidays.

Mandela was in fact a communist. So is the African National Congress (ANC). But Mandela and the old white leaders of South Africa (F.W. De Klerk, etc.), working in cooperation, managed to prevent what might have been a widespread bloody civil war after the the power structure switched over. Mandela and his immediate white predecessors deserve credit for that.

Rush most certainly is NOT lauding Mandela! He said the ANC were communists. Rush said Mandela was not near as bad as Robert Mugabe, which is true. He is watching himself and trying not to offend..

Gov. Chris Christie to sign law
giving illegals in-state tuition rates
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 12/20/2013 10:11:45 PM     Post Reply
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is poised to sign a bill that will give illegal immigrants the ability to pay the same lower college tuition rates as state residents. That would make New Jersey the 18th state in the nation to give illegal immigrants the lower tuition benefit, Newsmax reported. The bill that’s headed to Mr. Christie has been altered a bit from the version that was debated by state politicos over the past few weeks. The New York Times reported that a provision that was approved by the legislature to make financial aid available to illegal immigrants was removed. That removal

President Barack Obama, who is departing Friday for a vacation in Hawaii that will reportedly last until Jan. 5, took more annual vacation days on average in his first term than the average private-sector worker gets after 20 years on the job. Obama took an average of 21.5 vacations days per year in his first four years as president. By comparison, private-industry workers in the United States who have at least 20 years on the job get an average of 19 days of paid vacation per year.

Mariah Carey is under fire amid reports that she was paid $1 million last weekend to perform for Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, who has been labeled a dictator by human rights groups. Dos Santos is accused of ordering executions of his political opponents and journalists and exploiting the impoverished country´s resources. “Mariah Carey can’t seem to get enough dictator cash, reportedly more than $1 million this time," said the Human Rights Foundation´s Thor Halvorssen, according to Reuters.

Sometimes if an incident related to your particular cause is in the news, you might want to release a statement or make public comment to draw attention to your cause. This backfired on PETA in a major way this past week when, following news of a Pennsylvania teenager who was mauled by a black bear during a deer hunt, they sent out a letter to Camille Bomboy and asked her to stop hunting altogether. The letter, sent out last Friday, asks her to consider violence from the animal’s perspective. I am writing on behalf of PETA and our more than

So, leftist religious broadcaster MSNBC is taking A&E’s side in the Duck war. That’s their right, although, like the network’s unyielding support for Barack Obama, it’s a minority position. But when the Nation’s Richard Kim suggested today that if Phil Robertson and Bobby Jindal tried anal sex, they might like it, and host Chris Hayes giggled and said he wished Kim had gotten to do the GQ interview so he could ask them that question, well, honestly I don’t even know what to say. For an ideology that talks a great deal about keeping everyone out of everyone else’s bedroom,

Court deals new blow to
birth-control mandate
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ben Goad    Original Article

A federal court on Friday granted almost 200 evangelical ministries relief from the Affordable Care Act’s so-called birth control mandate. The ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma is the latest in a series of legal blows to the healthcare law’s requirement that workers be offered contraception as part of their employers´ insurance coverage. Under the ruling, 187 non-exempt religious groups that offer insurance through GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention are now protected from the mandate while their case proceeds. “This is an overwhelming victory for GuideStone and the nearly 200 plaintiffs in this class-action

Duck Hunt: The Phil Robertson ´GQ´
Quote the Media Refuse to Report

By extrapolating quotes and just plain old lying, the elite media are using a GQ interview with "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson as an excuse to go on an anti-Christian rampage that they hope will further their longstanding goal of toxifying Biblical beliefs as bigoted and anti-gay. If you read the full GQ interview, though, it is glaringly obvious that Robertson is anti-sin, not anti-gay, and that he believes we should all love one another. To begin with, the Duck Commander did not single out homosexual behavior; he listed over a half-dozen sins, including adultery, greed, bestiality, drunkenness, idolatry, etc.

During President Barack Obama’s final press conference of 2013, the president took a question from CNN’s Brianna Keilar about how much progress has been made toward enacting the second term agenda he outlined in January’s inaugural address. At the end of that question, however, the tone of the press conference shifted from adversarial to adorable when Obama was asked about something more “personal.” “If I may just, quickly, on a more personal note, what is your New Year’s resolution,” Keiler asked amid polite laughs from the White House press corps. “My New Year’s resolution is to be nicer to the White House

House Introduces Bill to

A bill introduced on Thursday in the House of Representatives would remove pension cuts to military retirees in the budget agreement passed this week and offset the fiscal difference by closing of a loophole that allows illegal immigrants to receive tax credits. Reps. Mike Fitzpatrick (R., Pa.) and Martha Roby (R., Ala.) introduced H.R. 3788 to replace a controversial provision in the bipartisan budget deal that hits military retirees with a 1 percent decrease in their annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) but left civilian federal retirees untouched. Disabled military retirees are not exempt from the cuts that could cost servicemembers as

GOP congressman: Immigration

A key House Republican said that if Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) secures several legislative wins early next year, an immigration bill could clear the lower chamber by next summer. Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) was careful to say that the battles ahead for Congress and the White House — such as raising the debt ceiling — could shape whether the House acts on immigration reform in early 2014. Cole serves as a deputy whip on Boehner´s leadership team. With the caveat that the House will not vote on the Senate-passed bill, Cole envisions a situation where Boehner allows a vote on

President Obama wants House Speaker John Boehner to take the lead on immigration reform, even if that means a piecemeal approach, believing that a more comprehensive White House plan would die in the GOP-controlled Congress, according to sources informed of the strategy. “The president is giving Boehner wide latitude,” said a business leader who has attended several White House meetings where the president´s team has laid out their strategy. “They believe that the only chance of passage in the House is to let Boehner write the plan and for the White House to offer support from the sidelines.” The White House

Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded "everything is normal" after testing. “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today." The Senate is set to finish its business for the year on Friday.

For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck

The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have

The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage. “This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead

O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term

The A&E Network’s suspension of Phil Robertson, star of the most popular reality show in the history of television, for espousing views on homosexuality identical to those found in the New Testament may not be the first PC lynching in the history of our country, but it is certainly now the most prominent. It is also a singular example of how political correctness, via cultural relativism, is used to undermine democracy and freedom of speech and is, at its core, fascistic. Yes, I just used the f-word and quite deliberately. PC and cultural relativism are the godchildren of Martin Heidegger

Phil Robertson´s anti-gay comments aren´t the only part of his interview with GQ causing controversy. The 67-year-old "Duck Dynasty" star was suspended by A&E Wednesday for calling homosexuality sinful — and putting gay people in same category as terrorists. While those quotes quickly went viral, it wasn´t his only brow-raising statement in the interview; he also implied that African Americans were happier living under Jim Crow laws. "I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once," the reality star said of growing up in pre-Civil-Rights-era Louisiana. "Where we lived was all farmers.
