  • Do African-Americans have Post Obama Blues? (VANITY)

    11/24/2015 5:25:29 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 40 replies
    Seeing the likely riots about to break out in Chicago tonight and the ongoing college campus insanity, my theory is blacks have entered a post-Obama depression. They thought electing a black president would improve their lives. Instead, the Democrat party has replaced them with Hispanics both in terms of political power numbers and in the job front. Young African-Americans are at 50% unemployment in major cities. By all measurable numbers, things have gotten worse for blacks in the last 7 years. Aside from the astro turf aspect of movements like Black Live Matters (Soros and company wanting to keep a...

    <p>As the United States has turned its attention to defeating the Islamic State group, it has softened its stance on the Syrian leader.

Now, they are going further.</p>

    As has been made abundantly clear by his incessant mewling and pathetically thin skin, Donald J. Trump is not in fact an unwaveringly resolute tough guy of the type you would hope to find standing next to you in the trenches, but an insecure attention seeker who cannot help but pander to his audiences' prejudices. In the past few days, Trump has been asked variously whether, if elected, he would use his power to close mosques; whether he believes that Muslims should be registered in a special government database; and whether or not it would be a good idea to...

    OK, so Obama has admitted that he has not vetted the Syrian refugees. They are probably unvettable anyway. He says the United Nations has vetted them. This was after he refused to reveal what his vetting methodology and would not share it. He's obviously hiding the fact that they have not been vetted whatsoever. I believe that they are here to kill and terrorize Americans. Now what to do? I think the rest is up to ordinary citizens to set up a refugee watch. Muslims in America need to know we're watching and that we're not giving up our country.

    Ok, let's get down to brass tacks. How long has the Islam religion been around and have they always been so hateful and violent (like so many of them are today)? I believe they claim to be direct descendants of Abraham but I also believe that Abraham was a favorite of our one true Judeo-Christian God, and was the father or grandfather of the Jewish and Christian religions. I have a hard time believing that our loving Judeo-Christian God is also the Islam God, Allah, whose Muslim followers seem to be so misplaced. Haven't the warlike Muslim tribes fanned out...

    Megyn interviews ex-al Qaeda double agent Morten Storm. Starting at 2:32 on the 11-17-2015 video, he reads from Hadith and the Koran, citing passages that prove beyond a doubt that ISIS' methods are completely in line with Islam. Megyn's reaction at 3:44 was one of stunned horror, as she listened to him and apparently realized for the first time that Islam -- far from being the religion of peace -- is the religion of murder, terror and totalitarianism.

His failure to meaningfully fight terrorism is laid bare and Hollande is now struggling in the face of regional elections on December 6th which could see National Front leader Marine Le Pen winning leadership in the northeast of the country and her niece Marion Marechal Le Pen winning leadership in the southeast.

    There are about 76 days remaining until Iowa. The polls, overall, show Trump blowing it out and he depends on/lives by, being high in the polls. His "stump" speeches are all about where he is, compared to the other candidates, in the rankings. Iowa is a state that votes very conservative, very Christian. I contend the entire race has a different fact at the end of voting there, as I believe Cruz will win Iowa. At that point you'll see a seismic shift in the political ring, where Trump is no longer at the top. Part of it will be...

Candidates with "experience" are helped. I agree with Coulter. It helps Trump. He was calling for the wall and end to Syrian 'refugees' before the attack. He was ahead of the curve on this. The politicians (except Cruz) were for opening borders and saying it wasn't "possible" to deport people.

    I really hope Trump isn't making a tactical error by kicking Carson when he is down.

He will implode on his own schedule and doesn't need Trump to help him along. He is in the campaign to sell books and build his brand.

There were no Republicans who agreed with it. The procedure of its’ passage was tortured. CSPAN and Republicans locked out of the committee room. Deemed by the SCOTUS to be a tax bill, it nevertheless originated in the Senate ignoring the Constitutional requirement that revenue...
