The Secret War On Black Republicans
Daily Beast, by Keli Goff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/11/2014 3:24:30 PM

Why are racist attacks on black Republicans so underreported by the media? There has been much written about the racial rhetoric that has permeated political discourse since President Obama took office, and the media often highlights the racially inflammatory language used by some of his opponents. But racially charged language targeting black Republicans rarely receives much coverage, further fueling conservative suspicion of the mainstream media. Late last month, Gloreatha Scurry-Smith, a congressional candidate in Florida’s Fifth district, found that one of her campaign signs had been vandalized. Smith says she initially wasn’t surprised that one of her billboards had been defaced, but

There aren´t any black Republicans.
It is very simple.
Any "black Republican" is a traitor to his race. Such people are ignored by those who know (the lame-stream media).
Since there are no such creatures, there can be no war on them.
The one black Republican I know goes around making as much noise as he can!

I´ve read where leftists claim that Black Republicans aren´t AUTHENTIC Blacks.
But let someone born a male, with male DNA, male sex organs, have surgery, take female hormones and says he is now a woman, it´s a hate crime to say he isn´t.

Fort Worth school trustees vote
to take ‘legal action’ against Tatum
Star-Telegram [Ft. Worth, TX], by Yamil Berard    Original Article

FORT WORTH — School trustees voted unanimously Tuesday night to take legal action against the Baptist minister who organized a janitorial project in which students expected to earn money by mopping and cleaning district schools over the summer. The Rev. Kyev Tatum was not authorized to recruit 100 youngsters to perform custodial duties at district schools, school board members said. (Snip)Parents said the students had been promised $8.25 an hour, and earlier this month, trustees voted to pay the students a total of about $60,000. Officials declined to pay Tatum a $10,000 administrative fee he asked for.

   

 

  


 
Liberal Super PAC Tries
To Defend Taking Soros
Money While Bashing Kochs
Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 12:29:11 PM     Post Reply
The leader of a prominent liberal super PAC on Wednesday defended taking money from billionaire George Soros while simultaneously condemning conservatives for benefiting from the fortunes of the Koch Brothers. During a Twitter exchange Wednesday, Brad Woodhouse of the Soros-backed American Bridge 21st Century argued that it is okay for his group to accept money from liberal billionaires because, unlike the Koch Brothers, these donors are “not looking to screw the middle class to enrich themselves.” Conservatives argue that thinking is hypocritical. Everything started Wednesday when Woodhouse blasted a news story to reporters titled, “GOP Senate Candidates Bow at Koch

In case you haven´t heard, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is facing felony charges alleging he abused his powers and tried to coerce an elected official to resign. Perry insists he isn´t guilty. And he´s hired an all-star legal team to make that case for him in court. Here´s a quick look at the lineup: Steve Schmidt: Schmidt is the latest addition to Perry´s team. A veteran Republican strategist best known for his role as a senior adviser on Sen. John McCain´s 2008 presidential campaign, he was portrayed by Woody Harrelson in the HBO film "Game Change."

´Sopranos´ Creator Finally Reveals
Whether or Not Tony Soprano Died

Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 11:56:10 AM     Post Reply
One of the most controversial finales in television history aired way back on June 10, 2007. When The Sopranos director David Chase cut to black as Tony Soprano was eating dinner with his family in a New Jersey diner, thousands of confused people nationwide called their cable companies to complain that their HBO service went out. Others were just like, “Huh? What happened to Tony?” Chase’s refusal to definitively spell out Tony’s fate has been met largely by anger and outrage from viewers but, on the other hand, the lack of confirmation has also led to some incredibly detailed analysis

American outrage over the gruesome murder of journalist James Foley has prompted the appearance of a reversal of President Obama´s "leading from behind" foreign policy strategy, especially in the Middle East. For months before, as ISIS rolled out of Syria and across Iraq, leaving a trail of horror in its wake all the way near Baghdad, Obama seemed content to leave the Iraqis to their fate. He made new U.S. assistance, for example, contingent on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki´s agreement to step aside in favor of a more inclusive government with support from Shias, Sunnis, Christians and Kurds.

CNN has obtained and published an audio recording of a Ferguson, Missouri man engaged in what sounds like a sex chat with a woman. In the midst of it, you can hear gun shots in the background. These are presumed to be, although CNN says repeatedly that it has not verified the recording, the sounds of Officer Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown. Erik Wemple relates the story behind the recording. Various observers, including CNN’s talking heads, have tried to attach great significance to the audio recording. CNN, promoting the recording as if it were a Blowup-type moment, recruited an audio expert

Call the Islamic State What It Is: Evil
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 5:18:22 AM     Post Reply
I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term “evildoers” to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn’t like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying “evil Dewar’s,” as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush’s statements chuckle-worthy — “We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar’s!”) I prefer single malts, but “evil” always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to “evildoers” was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc. “Perhaps without even realizing it,”

Taxpayer-Funded Millionaire
Fails to Comprehend the World
Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 5:14:11 AM     Post Reply
Millionaire and public intellectual Paul Krugman takes homes a $225,000 salary (to do no actual work) from the publicly funded City University of New York. And that’s only a fraction of his total earnings, which include a six-figure salary from the New York Times, where he writes columns that regurgitate Democratic Party talking points in an authoritative voice. Krugman’s latest is an attack on Gov. Rick Perry (R., Texas), who just took an exceedingly handsome mug shot and may run for president in 2016. Perry is also the governor of the state that leads the nation in job growth, a

Holder’s police-shooting hypocrisy
Washington Times, by James Bovard    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 4:53:26 AM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is enjoying a tidal wave of laudatory press coverage for his activism on the Ferguson, Mo., shooting and subsequent protests. In the 1990s, though, Mr. Holder ignored plenty of cases of District of Columbia black cops killing unarmed black civilians — even when policemen lied about the shootings. Mr. Holder was appointed in 1993 by President Clinton as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. At that time, D.C. police were killing more civilians than any other large city police force, based on population. The number of killings by D.C. police quadrupled between 1989 and

WASHINGTON — Panicked Democrats locked in tight midterm races as the party tries desperately to hold onto control of the Senate fear President Obama’s anticipated executive amnesty for about 5 million illegal immigrants may doom their re-election campaigns. New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who has seen her double-digit lead in the polls evaporate into a virtual dead heat with former Bay State U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, said any such move should be left up to Congress. Shaheen “would not support a piecemeal approach issued by executive order,” said her spokesman Shripal Shah, adding the Granite State incumbent “believes Congress must

After nearly four years of procedural delay, the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling is set to open shortly. Sterling was indicted at the end of 2010 for leaking information about a top-secret CIA operation to James Risen of the New York Times in violation of the espionage statutes. It is difficult to regard Sterling as in any sense a whistleblower, though, predictably, he calls himself such. He appears to have given Risen CIA secrets as a way to settle scores with the agency in a dispute over the presence of classified information in memoirs he sought to publish

The political subculture of anti-Obama leftists has entered a phase by this point in the Obama presidency where the truth of its worldview is so well-established to its own adherents that it requires no exposition. Tom Frank, an anti-Obama leftist, interviews Cornel West, another anti-Obama leftist, in a conversation so deeply marinated in shared assumptions that, at one point, both interviewer and interviewee agree that nobody disagrees with them. Frank asks West, “Is there anybody who thinks he’s progressive enough today? West replies, “Nobody I know. Not even among the progressive liberals.” What about maybe the 61 million people who

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!

As Burger King eyes moving its headquarters to Canada to lower its tax bill, a Democratic senator is recommending a boycott of the burger joint. Instead, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said hamburger lovers should try out two fast food chains that haven´t "abandoned" the United States -- White Castle and Wendy´s. "Burger King has always said ´Have it Your Way´; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven´t abandoned their country or customers," Brown said in a statement. Burger King is considering purchasing the Canadian-based business Tim Hortons in a move known as an "inversion" -- when a company
