  • MEDIA Video Surfaces of HILLARY Clinton Calling KKK Grand Dragon ‘Heart & Soul’ of AMERICA!

    08/25/2016 6:16:02 PM PDT · by NKP_Vet · 28 replies
    As we begin Super Tuesday, conservative business Donald Trump has been under fire for not disavowing David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). It was a classic “gotcha” question by the liberal media, as Trump has disavowed Duke and his racism in years past. But what about Hillary Clinton’s record on race? Now, a video has appeared on YouTube of Hillary Clinton speaking highly of a former Klan Member. Former U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a card-carrying member and recruiter for the KKK. In the 1940s, he obtained the KKK rank of “Exalted cyclops”...

    U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd obtained secret FBI documents about the civil rights movement that were leaked by the CIA and triggered an angry confrontation between the two agencies in the 1960s, according to newly released FBI records. Byrd, who died in June 2010 at age 92, had sought the FBI intelligence while suspecting that communists and subversives were guiding the civil rights cause, the records show.

    How Dare They! These self-serving, self-righteous thieves! Right before Congress slinked away to beg for their jobs – The U.S. Senate voted to pay Senator Byrd's family a $193,400 Death Bonus! Please, make no mistake about it. This was not a charitable act of good will. This was a blatant display of Washington cronyism at it's worst. Believe me, I would applaud a charitable act from our elitists in the Senate. But not one Senator took a thin dime out of his/her pocket. THEY TOOK IT OUT OF OURS! Senator Robert Byrd was no charity case. He was a U.S....

    Ambulances race to Byrd's home By: Manu Raju September 22, 2009 10:16 AM EST Ambulances and fire trucks were dispatched to the Northern Virginia home of Sen. Robert Byrd Tuesday morning. A neighbor of the 91-year-old West Virginia Democrat said several ambulances were outside his residence in McLean, Va., and a Byrd spokesman said the senator suffered a fall in his home. An officer at the McLean Fire Department said that a unit was dispatched at 9:10 to the address where Byrd lives, but he declined to comment on the substance of the response. Byrd – the longest-serving senator in...

    Byrd spokesman Jesse Jacobs says Byrd plans to spend his birthday quietly reading the hundreds of birthday wishes that have flooded his offices. Byrd also expects to have lunch with his staff and to visit with his seven great-grandchildren. A surprise 90th birthday party was held Thursday in the ballroom of the Capitol Hill hotel. More than 300 people attended, including West Virginia's entire congressional delegation and Governor Manchin. Manchin presented Byrd with a West Virginia Living Legend Award, which the governor created as a tribute to renowned West Virginians. The award has been given to only two other people:...

    Klan holds rally at GettysburgGETTYSBURG, Pa. - About 30 Ku Klux Klan members proclaimed hatred for blacks, Jews, gays and Latinos as they stood behind barricades at the Civil War battlefield where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. Gordon Young of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan also called Saturday for the U.S. to pull its troops out of Iraq and use them to patrol the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration. The World Knights obtained a permit in July for the two-hour demonstration. The National Park Service granted it under the group's First Amendment rights to free...

    IN the last few years, it has seemed that perhaps America's long-buried history of blackface is being allowed to peek out of the closet. Bob Dylan named his most recent studio album "Love and Theft," after Eric Lott's landmark 1993 study of the form; and in his curious 2003 film, "Masked and Anonymous," Dylan even got Ed Harris to "black up" for a scene. Spike Lee also explored the subject in "Bamboozled," and competing biographies of Stepin Fetchit joined "Where Dead Voices Gather," Nick Tosches' meditation on the minstrel superstar Emmett Miller, on bookshelves. "Old Dan Tucker," the opening track...

    Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd (W. Va.) warned that he would bring the U.S. Senate to a standstill if Republicans try to outlaw filibusters on judicial nominations. “If they want a fight, let them try," Byrd said. "I’m 88-years-old. I was there when we used the filibuster to block those bills giving civil rights to Nigras,” Byrd said. “I’m not afraid of these Republican pantywaists. I rode with the Klan in the days when men were men.” The filibuster is a tactic used to indefinitely prolong debate on the Senate floor. Democrats have already used the filibuster to block some of...

    Nearly four months after the Senate's most influential Democrat, former majority leader Robert Byrd, defended the Ku Klux Klan in his autobiography, Byrd has yet to offer an apology - and fellow Democrats have not asked him to make one. "Robert C. Byrd: Child of the Appalachian Coalfields" hit bookstores in June - and featured Byrd's firsthand account of his days as an up-and-coming member of the nation's most notorious anti-black terrorist group. According to the eight-term West Virginia Democrat, the Klan he remembers was "a fraternal group of elites – doctors, lawyers, clergy, judges and other 'upstanding' people." At...

Today I posted a link to an official report from the UK from the Chatham House, a deeply respected think tank, held in high esteem all over the world. And what happened? Well, all my posts were removed, and the thread about the Chatham House report was pulled within a minute. This is interesting. What's the matter? There is but one...

    MASON, Mich. — A planned auction of Ku Klux Klan items was canceled Saturday after fliers encouraging KKK membership were distributed in the community where the event was to be held. Residents in Mason, a Lansing suburb where civil rights leader Malcolm X lived for a time, awoke to find the fliers in front of their homes on Saturday. The fliers did not mention Sunday's auction, but the Ole Gray Nash Auction House in Howell canceled the event regardless. "We don't believe [the fliers were] actually authentic, but someone went to a lot of trouble," said Becky Hinz, an auction...

Robert Byrd   In 2001, Senator Robert C. Byrd managed to claw $232 million in pork for West Virginia, or $128 for every single resident, using his privileged position as ranking chairman of the Appropriations Committee. After he secured $97 million in fiscal 1999, Byrd became the first person in CAGW's Congressional Pig Book history to obtain more than $1 billion in pork for his state. In honor of...

    Why is it that so many people view the Republican party, and conservatives as raceist? If it weren't for the Republican party the civil rights movement would never have even started. Ulysses S. Grant was preaching about social and racial equality, way before John F. Kennedy was even born. Without furthure Lets take a look at the evidence. In his 1st Inaugural Address Grant said, "The question of suffarage is one which is likely to agitate the public so long as a portion of the citizens are excluded from it's privledges in any state. It seems to me very desirable...

    The main factors appear to suggest that he shouldn't pick anyone who might tend to overshadow him and it should be someone who would tend to make him appear more moderate but also someone he would feel comfortable with politically. Right away we have to dismiss the two most glaringly obvious candidates, Kim Il Sung jr and Mullah Omar since, I believe, they're not US citizens. Michael Moore has been mentioned since he would mirror Kerry's views on Iraq and help tremendously with the leftist fat slob voter but reportedly he has turned down the offer and will only accept...

    ( - Efforts to discredit radio news commentator Rush Limbaugh escalated this week with a new radio ad campaign hammering Limbaugh for comments he made about the abuse of Iraqi inmates at the Abu Ghraib prison. Still unresolved, meanwhile, is the Palm Beach County, Fla., prosecutor's investigation of Limbaugh for possible "doctor shopping" in connection with Limbaugh's admitted former addiction to painkillers. The separate media and legal challenges to Limbaugh are part of a longstanding strategy employed by the political left, according to Mark Levin, director of the Landmark Legal Foundation and a supporter of Limbaugh. "There's no question they've...

    Kerry supporter and fellow northeast elitist liberal Christopher Dodd took to the floor of the Senate this week to praise Sen. Robert Byrd as a man for all seasons. Dodd specifically mentioned that Byrd "would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation." In most cases we could chalk this up to making an old man - who proudly wears the title "King of Pork" for all of our tax dollars he sends to West Virginia - happy. However, saying that Byrd would have been right for the country during the Civil War is a...

    Dear Concerned Citizen: As you may know, the Florida House recently led the fight to help save Terri Schiavo’s life from being cut short by court-ordered dehydration and starvation. We passed legislation, known as “Terri’s Law” to allow the Governor to issue a stay on court-ordered starvation and dehydration deaths under certain circumstances. Like many Floridians, I believe the process failed to protect Terri Schiavo and her family. Our action helps to restore a piece of what has been taken from her family. Unfortunately, Terri’s husband, Michael, has continued to pursue legal avenues to end Terri’s life. Terri’s case is...

Nugent claims that accusations made by city officials and others, and the cancelation of the June 30 concert, damaged his reputation and career, according to a statement issued by his attorney. The lawsuit names the City of Muskegon; Mayor Stephen Warmington; City Manager Bryon Mazade; Meridian Entertainment, the concert's promoter, and others as defendants. "In a world of...

    Capitol Hill-AP -- Some of the toughest criticism yet from Congress on the war in Iraq. Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia says the Bush administration lured the American people into launching an illegal, unprovoked attack on another nation in violation of international law and under false premises. The Senate's most senior member says the administration manipulated the events of nine-eleven to switch public focus from Osama bin Laden to Saddam Hussein. He points out that it was bin Laden who masterminded the terror attacks, not Saddam. Byrd says the administration's claim that war was necessary because the Iraqis...
