  • (Group of) Black Men Assault White Man for Voting Trump

    Have you ever watched videos, livestreams from Tommy Sotomayor? He’s a black guy who is actually a leader of that substantial minority of blacks.

    His videos have been informative and eye-opening, as he is essentially airing the dirty laundry that the black community keeps to itself. He doesn’t just air the laundry, but he is leading blacks in America to come together to start washing, or at least acknowledge all of the stinky and blood-stained hoodies in the hamper.

    He has multiple channels, but here is one:

    A recent interview with a listener that left me a bit slack-jawed at how much black folks put each other through:

  • (Group of) Black Men Assault White Man for Voting Trump

    11/10/2016 3:07:58 AM PST · 1 of 34
    A group of unaccompanied black minors helped a racist, homophobic, misogynistic white man out of his car, but found themselves forced to defend themselves as the interloper attempted to head butt their hands and feet.

    After simply trying to engage the racist Islamaphobe in a civic discussion about Tuesday's tragic election outcome, said caucasoid triggered the youths by not denouncing the evil orange-skinned demon. He then escalated the situation by going so far as to not deny voting for the racist Republican rapist.

    Family and friends of the victimized young community activists were shocked to learn what had happened to their young neighbors who were simply blockading an intersection in their neighborhood. The boys had taken time from their usual helping out at church, takung out the garbage or assisting neighbors with pharmaceutical acquisition and delivery.

  • Republican Combat Vet: Trump Is Openly Advocating War Crimes

    Most of the stuff Trump has promised HAS been all bluster.

    While many would like to see him deport all illegals, it is simply impossible to do legally. There is no way you can deport anyone without due process of law. That applies to anyone who is inside the US, citizen or not. So you can _round up_ whoever you want, but you cannot even hold them in a local jail without initiating legal proceedings. At that point, the legal battle to deport begins.

    Multiply that by 11 million.

    I think that the guy in this post just sees the same ludicrous bluster but in another area. Because he is right, a lot of the stuff Trump has said he will do against _terrorists_ he cannot do, because he could never get the legal authority to implement. Legally.

    That’s why many don’t take Trump seriously, because he knows he cannot do what he is advocating, yet he just throws out the red meat because the electorate is not sophisticated enough to realize that a President cannot do whatever the heck he wants; there are two other branches of government that were deliberately put in place to keep a ridiculous President in check.

    And a man deliberately misleading his supporters from the outset is pretty scary, if you think about it a bit.

    Finally, realize that in any violation of the Constitution that you indulge Trump, you are essentially also empowering the next Barack Obama with. And guess who that next leftist would use those powers on (hint, it won’t be Muslims or illegal aliens)?

    Not that I thought well of Rubio to begin with, but his choice to try to throw Breitbart under the bus certaibly does him no favors with the conservative base. He then goes on to seal the deal by admitting that he refuses to credential them at his events.

    Andrew Breibart was a conservative hero, a fearless special operator in the fight against the destruction of our culture. While the website is not Andrew Breitbart, it is his legacy and should be at least respected by anyone who dares claim any type of conservative mantle.

    Rubio just made it crystal clear whose side he is on in the fight for our nation’s soul.

    I do not think it is second guessing Bush.

    We have to realize that Bush and co. convinced us that Muslims were just like us, and that all they needed was Democracy. Can anyone honestly argue, 14 years later, that there was any scenario that would have allowed for the population of Iraq to have created a government that was anything other than an Islamic theocracy of some form? Even the Constitution we helped draft confirms Sharia as the root of their law.

    It is bad enough that Bush, at best, ignored council that tried to warn him of Uslams rejection of Democracy, and its bloodlust. That he refuses to even acknowledge that the RoP crap ws 100% bunk, should be confirm his ignorance and hubris. And our naivete as conservatives.

    I appreciate your even-tempered post. /salute

    Even if those were factors, and to some extent they no doubt were, they were dwarfed by the fact that Bush did not tell the truth about the true nature of Islam. He was the one who pushed Religion of Peace down America’s throat. We know that to be 100% false.

    Knowing what we know today, if Saudi Arabia sank one of our Aircraft Carriers in the Gulf, would you send American troops in on the ground, expecting that all we needed to do was kill every member of the House of Saud, and elections would then make that a nation a Western style democracy, just with camels and kebabs? Or would you basically bomb it to shit from 30,00 feet and be done with it?

    Most of us conservatives believed that Bush and his advisors knew what they were doing, and that they would put our nation and Christian values first.

    We were wrong to trust them so blindly, never thinking that W was pushing the Religion if Peace out of Political Correctness and not the truth of Islam.

    To this day W still supports democratic movements, even if they lead to Islamist, terrorist sponsoring nations. As long as there are elections, that is all that matters, according to W. We learned our lesson, that no politician is to be trusted at face value ever.

    The price was, shockingly, 1,000s of dead and maimed patriots, and the futures of 2-3 more generations mortgaged away for a far less stable, and less free world. We could have learned that lesson at a price far less dear and devastating.

    There are sides other that W vs. Code Pink.

    Has any GOP official of any standing ever warned us, before, during, or after the war, that Islam was incompatible with democracy? That if you took away a strongman in a Muslim country, you will end up with fundamentalist Islam?

    No, we were told Islam was the same as Christianity, and once we gave them elections, that would solve the problems of terrorism.

    I, like the rest of us, trusted the word of W and the other Republicans. They knew better, they certainly SHOULD have known better, instead of letting Political Correctness trump reality. Many of us supported W blindly, sadly, and only after doing our own research, years after the war, that W was full of shit about the Religion of Peace.

    Remember, W gave us Religion of Peace. He drilled it into us, and we assumed that he and his advisors had put the work in to find the best solution for the US. He did not, and we had to find out the hard way that Islam was not Christianity plus Mohammed, but a blood thirsty imperialist death cult, the closest thing one can imagine to be the Antichrist.

    So, either you are on THAT side, or it is not as binary as you would like to pretend.

    Its called LAWFARE, and the intent is to bring any charges they want, to force people into mounting a costly legal defense. The charges are not meant to stick, the punishment is the time and money to clear your name.

    Others see this and say... Its not worth it. And the bad guys win. That’s what you get with BILLIONS of pages of laws on the books: you can always find something to CHARGE anyone with. It dies not need to stick, just punish via time, money and reputation lost.

    I realize rhat this speech is close to five years old now, and has been published here on FR before.

    That saud, it is very important to repost this speech every now and again. Nothing better illustrates our founders hope to avoid FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS than our useless meddling in the Arab and Muslim world. The most recent being our entirely feckless support of DEMOCRACY in the Arab Springs.

    Libya is the poster child for our collective hubris and incompetence, and it is important to be reminded what we, as a nation, did.

    Is DEMOCRACY, as represented simply as resistance to authoritarian administration of a state government, really the ideal everywhere and at all times?

  • Carson speaker 'devastated' by bogus report

    risen_feenix to Red Steel

    Reasonable people should be able to agree that at this point it’s clear that the Cruz campaign spreading the story that Carson was dropping out had no meaningful impact on the delegates awarded. It also seems unlikely that the false claim, easily disproven by the check of a smartphone, had any impact at all in terms of votes.

    That being said, Cruz sending his surrogates out to spread a lie about a fine, honest conservative like Dr. Carson is a rotten thing to do. It shows that the conservative movement is not what Cruz is truly interested in, but winning at all costs.

    I lost any interest in Trump early on when he would condemn Politico one day as being a lying rag if they ran a story about him, and then the next day use a story against Carson or Cruz, from Politico, that was even MORE ridiculous, to beat over another conservative candidate’s head. He clearly wasn’t interested in the conservative movement, just his candidacy. Especially in contrast to Cruz, who never betrayed other conservatives using idiotic left-wing nonsense.

    But Cruz lying about Carson had the same effect on my enthusiasm for Cruz. I naively thought we had an heir to Reagan in Cruz, but when he p*ssed on Reagan’s 11th commandment, I knew I had been duped.

    You can criticize another conservative, campaign against him, heck you can do damn near anything. But once you lie and tarnish another conservative, it shows your core.

    So now I’m stuck back on the fence, with heart still with Dr. Carson, but aware of the fact that his break in campaigning to promote his book backfired and he lost himself the race.

    Finally, to all the Cruz and Trump supporters, I envy you to some extent. That you can so easily look past the things that others like me find so repulsive about these candidates. I don’t know how you can, and I’m sure life would be easier if I could.

    You have to realize that Rove is trying to oversimplify and obfuscate the issue. If you divide the total number GOP caucus goers by 1500, it is just over 100. These are small, intimate events where there were Carson supporters in the room if some Cruz supporter were to make such a claim.

    Based on the numbers, the average precinct would have been about 110 people, and the following unfolded:

    There were 12 Carson delegates standing around, and then one of the 30 or so Cruz folks made the dropout claim. The 12 Carson folks look at each other, shrug, and 4 walk over to the Cruz team.

    Do you really think that 4 of the Carson folks told the other 8 that they were going to just believe the Cruz people and that was it? None of the Carson folks checked their phones to see if it was true?

    Rove wants you to believe that 1/3 of Carson backers believed the Cruz people. Yet not one Caucus goer for Carson has made the claim that in their Caucus anyone defected to Cruz because of the claim.

    Rove is scum, and will do anything to prevent any conservatives from winning the GOP nomination.

    I truly believe that very, very few caucus-goers who supported Carson would have been tricked into not voting for him absent Carson himself stating it. Certainly not enough to account for the 1000s he would have needed to beat Rubio for third.

    That being said, it showed a distasteful lack of class, ethics and honor on the part of Cruz to willingly lie about a good man like Dr. Carson.

    So in the end, it truly made zero difference to the outcome in terms of delegates, but it sullied Ted Cruz more than he and his die hards realize.

    I was definitely supporting Cruz up until that rotten trick. Now, he goes into the category: I will vote for him in the general, but that is as much support as he is getting from me.

    My family members who were on the fence got knocked off said fence by Cruz himself, and not onto his side. In the end, I am glad I know this early on the content of his character.

    Given the obvious sentiment between most blacks and whites, as reasonable folks we should start focusing on doing something productive to resolve the situation. In this particular case, the only workable solution is the dissolution of our “United States” into smaller confederations of states based on shard values and culture.

    Rather than beat drums of any sort of race war, people need to start advocating conservative states withdrawing from the United States. After all, liberal/ progressive states abhor the U.S. Constitution, while conservatives value it. We really have zero in common with one another. We get different news from different sources. If a liberal and a conservative try to discuss a topic, we have no common frame of reference. We are absolutely foreign to one another.

    Conservatives need to stop wasting time on the 75% of the country who think the Constitution is obsolete or don’t have a clue what the hell it is. They are not interested in having the same nation as us.

    Government never gets smaller. If it does, it’s just a temporary blip. I guarantee you that Obamacare will get expanded before it, or even a portion of it, gets rolled back.

    Conservatives need to migrate to conservative states and begin the push for an new, independent nation of only a few states. We can learn from how liberals tore apart our Constitution, and basically use our same Constitution with only a few modifications to prevent it from being perverted again.

    We can drastically reduce social services spending, which would drive many in the dependent class out of our new nation, and to the Welfare State(s) that remain.

    There’s no reason for any kind of race war. Lets just part ways amicably while it’s still possible. I’m sure liberals would drool at the idea of a core of 5-10 southern and midwestern states leaving the union and guaranteeing them their socialist paradise(s).

    “So what if the Navy shooting was to cover up that a Supreme Court Justice and the United States Military were plotting to arrest the President for Treason?”
    The crazy is strong with this one...

    That’s comedy gold right there. Drudge had millions of readers, Beck has only a few thousand people following his delusions anymore.

    The media will blame the fact that they were not accepted by their host country well-enough, that their peers did not fully embrace them, etc. This led for them finding solace in Islam, then seeing the US killing muslims, etc.

    Even though they did exactly what their religion tells them to do, the press will harp, as they always do, that Islam had nothing to do with these bombings.

    I remember a time when government jobs were for people who couldn’t perform in the private sector. “Bless his heart, he needs to find a town job” was a common saying when referring to a person with few life skills, low motivation and/or basic, all-around unemployability.

    I grew up when it was understood that people who worked for civil service were just a step or two above being non-functioning human beings. Not quite retarded, but not quite smart enough to do for themselves on the job market. We had government jobs so people like this wouldn’t go on welfare, but could do some sort of work where performance really wasn’t a big deal, and the pay was accordingly low.

    Then the Unions took over and a few decades later, civil service workers are some of the highest paid people around, even though the people didn’t get any smarter or start working any harder.

    “I expected no less from The “History” channel. Sounds like I wouldn’t have been dissapointed if I had bothered to watch their drivel.”
    I agree with you on the History Channel, they will deliberately misrepresent the truth for the sake of creating drama.

    However, this series in particular was made by Burnett and Downey, who are people of faith. The History channel may have backed it, but I don’t think they had much say in the day-to-day of it all. People of faith the world over have mostly good to say of it.

    What’s more, the discrepancies that you were responding to really are quite minimal and don’t really detract from the point of the story.
