Marxism through Racism: …running for office on the “Not the White Man’s Bitch” platform

well well WELL… lookie what we have here… another Racist running for office:

Ieshuh Griffin, an independent candidate for the Milwaukee Assembly, is pissed. She was not allowed to have the state ballot printed with her five word platform which reads: “Not the White Man’s Bitch.” Perhaps the Obama White House or the DOJ can intervene on her behalf.  After all, they are not the White Man’s Bitches either. Right, Holder? Right, Obama?

mmm… personally I am not anyone’s “bitch,” black or white.  But then I don’t need to say it on a ballot to try to get votes.  Where is your New Black Panthers boyfriend, Ieshuh? Or, do they just ignore ya?

Perhaps Ieshuh’s five-word political  statement is a de facto confession she is the Communist Man’s bitch? I dunno… maybe.

Is it, that if a Marxist is white he is not really white in the eyes of Marxists of color? I suspect that is the case.

Is it, that if a Conservative is black he or she is not really black in the eyes of all Marxists regardless of their color? I am sure that is the case.

State board turns back ballot language from independent

State elections officials narrowly rejected a Milwaukee Assembly candidate’s attempt to run with the slogan “NOT the ‘whiteman’s bitch’ ” under her name on the ballot.

Ieshuh Griffin, a Milwaukee independent running to replace retiring Rep. Annette “Polly” Williams (D-Milwaukee), said in response she would sue the Government Accountability Board for infringing on her freedom of speech.

    Black Caucus head: Government ‘held hostage’ by Fox and other media
    By Michael O’Brien – 07/22/10 10:34 AM ET

    The government is being sometimes “held hostage” by Fox News and other media outlets, the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus charged Thursday.

    Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the caucus, said she was concerned that outlets like Fox were creating a culture of “misinformation” that has led to controversies like the one following Shirley Sherrod.

    In Defense of Andrew Breitbart
    by Dan Riehl
    07/22/2010

    The media and progressive-left Democrats now appear in a rush to convict Andrew Breitbart of shoddy journalism, while exonerating Shirley Sherrod and the NAACP from charges of abiding racism within their ranks. Both Sherrod and the NAACP have charged the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party with racism, while offering less proof than Breitbart did of the racism he correctly alleged. In many cases, the Left has outright manufactured evidence of racism regarding Tea Party events, yet no one has raised a voice about that slander at all. If one didn’t know better, this wouldn’t be today’s news, but an Orwellian script circa 1984.

    At approximately 17 minutes into the now-released full video of the event, Sherrod can be heard relaying a tale from her past in which she initially failed to help a white farmer with the full effort she would reserve for a black farmer.

    The assembled crowd of card-carrying members of the NAACP took great pleasure in that, their laughter was not nervous at all. That is a contemporaneous expression of racism by today’s politically correct standards, not racism from some 40 years ago.

    I’m tired At 63
    Robert A. Hall is the actor who plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show.

    This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America .

    “I’m 63 and I’m Tired”
    by Robert A. Hall

    I’m 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

    I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

    I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

    I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U. S. Senators from Illinois.

    I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

    I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

    I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

    I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

    I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

    I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the citizens we need.

    I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

    I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois, where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.

    I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

    Speaking of poor, I’m tiredof hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

    I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

    Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

    Report: US Vulnerable to Nuclear Attack
    *******************************************

    (July 22) — The threat of an all-out nuclear exchange between Russia and the United States may be less than it was during the Cold War, but defense experts say decades-long efforts to avoid a possible Armageddon have had a downside: The United States is now woefully unprepared for any kind of nuclear attack.

    That’s the conclusion of an influential Pentagon defense advisory panel, which recently completed a comprehensive review of the nation’s ability to respond to and survive a nuclear attack. The panel found that the expertise needed to survive a nuclear attack has atrophied since the end of the Cold War.

    “The task force believes that this state of affairs … is dangerous and needs to be reversed,” states the report issued jointly by the Defense Science Board and the Threat Reduction Advisory Committee Task Force. The reports authors say the conclusions of the study should serve as a “wake-up call” to the Pentagon, and they urge the Defense Department’s leadership to take steps to enhance nuclear survivability.
    Undated file photo of the launch key mechanism at the deactivated Delta Nine Launch Facility near Wall, S.D.
    Minuteman Missile NHS/AP
    An advisory panel at the Pentagon has concluded that the country is inadequately prepared for a nuclear attack. Here, in an undated photo, is the key mechanism at the deactivated Delta Nine Launch Facility near Wall, S.D.

    Among the specific problems cited in the report are the lack of hardening of military equipment needed to ensure it would survive a nuclear blast and resulting electromagnetic radiation, and a decline in knowledge among military leaders on how to operate and respond to a nuclear attack.

    “Technical expertise and infrastructure have decayed significantly,” the report states. “Investments in nuclear survivability have declined.”

    Both the Untied States and Russia have slashed their nuclear stockpiles significantly since the end of the Cold War, and the Obama administration has taken steps to further reduce the nation’s nuclear arsenal. Under a nuclear reduction pact signed this year, both countries agreed to limit the number of deployed nuclear warheads to 1,550.

    Ironically, the problems identified in the report are sparked, in part, by the lessening danger of an all-out nuclear attack. The panel members warned that 60 years of deterrence has led senior leaders to de-emphasize the importance of preparing for a nuclear attack.

    “The task force also believes this point of view is profoundly wrong and dangerous,” the report says.

    Unlike the astroturf hired hands of the left, I am motivated, not by money but by love of my country coupled with enough intelligence to recognize when the Country is under duress from ideological attack from the Marxists who have taken over the Democrat Party.

    I believe in a balance of power between the left and right and it is so far out of balance it is criminal. Thus I push back against the Obama Regime, of which it is known should not even be in power. The F’ing criminal stole the nomination from Senator Clinton.

    I am a former Liberal Centrist and former Clinton supporter and a PUMA forever. Obama and his criminal cronies in the Media created me and PUMAS like me.

    So… WELCOME TO THE PARTY, PAL!

    I will not stop until Obama is removed from office.

    Rangel Charged With Ethics Violations
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    WASHINGTON — A House investigative panel on Thursday announced multiple ethics charges against Rep. Charles Rangel, the powerful New York Democrat who has been fending off accusations related to his business
    dealings and fund-raising, among other issues.

    The case will go to trial before a separate ethics committee, and Rangel said Thursday he looks forward to the opportunity to explain himself to his constituents after two years of allegations.

    Rangel was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee until he stepped down in March following criticism from the House ethics committee in a separate case.

    The announcement Thursday did not specify which alleged violations would be considered during this trial. Sources familiar with the allegations, who were not authorized to discuss them publicly, told the Associated Press the charges against the 40-year Democrat were related to:

    –Rangel’s use of official stationery to raise money for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York.

    July 22: Rep. Charlie Rangel answers questions from the media on Capitol Hill in Washington.

    –His use of four rent-subsidized apartment units in New York City. The city’s rent stabilization program is supposed to apply to one’s primary residence. One had been used as a campaign office, raising a separate question of whether the rent break was an improper gift.

    –Rangel’s failure to report income as required on his annual financial disclosure forms. The committee had investigated his failure to report income from the lawmaker’s rental unit at the Punta Cana Yacht Club in the Dominican Republic. Rangel also belatedly disclosed hundreds of thousands of dollars in investment assets.

    The timing of the announcement ensures that a public airing of Rangel’s ethical woes will stretch into the fall campaign, and Republicans are certain to make it an issue as they try to capture majority control of the House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi had once promised to “drain the swamp” of ethical misdeeds by lawmakers in arguing that Democrats should be in charge.

    Responding to the charges, Rangel said in a statement, “I was notified today, two years after I requested an investigation, that the Ethics Committee will refer the allegations reviewed by an investigations subcommittee to a subcommittee that will review the facts. I am pleased that, at long last, sunshine will pierce the cloud of serious allegations that have been raised against me in the media.”

    Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said, “The action today would indicate that the independent, bipartisan ethics committee process is moving forward.”

    Rangel led the tax-writing Ways and Means panel until he stepped aside last March after the ethics committee criticized him in a separate case — finding that he should have known corporate money was paying for his trips to two Caribbean conferences.

    Officials said that in the current case, the committee and Rangel’s attorney tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a settlement. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private discussions. A settlement would have required Rangel to agree that he violated ethics rules.

    Rangel had hoped to regain his chairmanship, but the allegations make that virtually impossible this year.

    He announced a bid for a 21st term recently, days before his 80th birthday. One of his Sept. 14 primary opponents is Adam Clayton Powell IV, son of the former congressman whom Rangel defeated in 1970.

    While the case will generate unfavorable headlines for Rangel, it may have little effect in his congressional district, New York’s famed Harlem, where the congressman has been a political leader for decades and is known by older constituents as a Korean War hero.

    I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News?

    I’m tired of the continuous indoctrination and dumbing down of our children in the school systems. The First Amendment talks of freedom of religion and NOT freedom from religion.
