Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill

Pure Republicanism!

I often wonder why African-Americans support the GOP. Yes, I understand the need for some human beings to overstep all rational existence via reaching to differentiate themselves from another group they literally stand as utter fools. In the context of this past that Pother group: happens to be other African-Americans. As I move through the piece it is important to remind readers African-American who claim and affiliate with conservative Amercian refuse to refer to themselves in the commonly accepted vernacular of "African-American." You refer to them as "black" or do not refer to them with any skin color phraseology at all.  well, an ideal state which has not come to be in the US. 

A few examples are clear. Clarence Thomas and his confessed hatred of his "blackness' and year after year of disassociation from the black community while so diligently working to associate with the GOP he often makes himself appear pathetic. Another well-known example...

"I am an American. Black. Conservative," he said, punctuating each aspect of his self-identity. "I don't use African-American, because I'm American, I'm black and I'm conservative. I don't like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people."
While the vast majority of "black" conservatives work to disassociate from African-American it should be noted they to the person claiming the GOP. The next and logical question is why doesn't the GOP work to at as a minimum to offer some degree of support for slam-dunk humane issues?  Before the following segment allow me a moment to answer the question.

First, the part, movement, and conservative America don't give one damn about Americans who are not white. The statement may appear harsh, but the reality is irrefutable. Another consideration is the basic paradigm of the Conservative mind: Ayn Randism and the reality of their "It doesn't affect me" psyche.  On a tertiary basis and probably the most influencing of them all, GOP politician will not go against the underlying core values of their constituents.  If the politician signs on with legislation or measures which only addresses the African-American community, the politician risks the wrath of all things conservative among their constituents. Basically, and in much more simple terms. Give the constituents what they want and avoid that which would raise their eyebrows. 

The need for an anti-lynching bill is a bit perplexing, but still a measure only one GOP Senator supported. The one supporters: Southern Carolina's Tim Scott.

Crooks & Liars

Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill: Sen. Tim Scott could not explain why no other Republican in the Senate is supporting his anti-lynching legislation.

Herman Cain Is Back. Did he Say He Might Run? [ Wrong Party Herm ]

Not only Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush emerged from virtual hibernation to reap the fruits of the 2014/2016 election cycles, another has burst into the sunlight: Herman Cain.

Yes, Cain has comeback to the cameras and seeking a place in our psyches as both political parties start to line-up their potential candidates for 2016. My thoughts on Cain were published here in 2011 and we need say much no more than we had hoped he would melt into the world to AM Radio.  Let's be real, he cannot stand like Sarah Palin, as "smug-faced and dense as granite", but we surely hoped his cerebral constipation and oral diarrhea was a thing of the past.

Oh , the extent to which we were wrong.

He has arisen, grabbed a camera on Fox News and reminded us of why we cringed with every inane utterance from the man.  The following segment is about 3.50 minutes longer than it should be, but we are unable to extract a sub-clip. We are posting the segment to provide you with clear evidence Cain's issue are long-term and he was not simply posturing for the cameras in 2011 and 2012.  The man is clearly missing a few critical pieces of gray matter.

Our specific interest is the portion of the clip at which he chastised the RNC for publishing a list of potential candidate for the GOP presidential ticket.  He exclaims, "....they are all white."  Let's view the clip and I will comment on the other side.

First things first, the Koch brothers, Fox News and Limbaugh (along with Beck) Are the central authorities in the Republican Party.  Without question eve member of the GOP is beholden and subservient to one of more of the aforementioned. Or, they run form any level of criticism and, or, scorn that might emanate from those who command media audiences. Thus, if they do the bidding of the demagoguery and the money-brokers, we ask why does O'Reilly not feel that is a central authority in the GOP? 

More important, does Herman Cain actually not realize he is affiliated with a political movement, party and paradigm that is anti-diversity.  Surely, he has to understand the reality of a political party with a racial composition of 92% white people. Such numbers are not in an way coincidental.  Why do people like Cain and other "Black Conservatives" (since they general avoid the words "African-American") fail to realize that 96% of Africa -Americans hold the GOP in contempt for a reason?  

We often show this image. And, we will continue to do so as it is a validating statement about how Cain's party feels about black people.  Is the African-American community in the eyes of the GOP as we often posit, "The Invisible Negroes?" 

Is it possible Cain doesn't realize the website outreach omission of African-American was intentional? The [point should be clear.

The GOP is not about the business of tolerance, diversity and inclusions.  Any minority visibility with the party has a strategic purpose and that purpose is grounded in subterfuge.  Michael Steele is the perfect example. Within weeks of Barack Obama's inauguration for this first term as president, what did the GOP do. Party power-brokers pulled Steel from the basement and gave him a mission, "Go get us some respect in the black community." The GOP also gave the nation Sarah Plain as a tool to combat the Democrat nomination of Barack Obama to head their ticker.  All said the latter from the GOP has turned into a national embarrassment and social horror story, not a surprise from the GOP.

Did you like me wonder about Cain's judgment in even mentioning a man who was discharged from the US Army under less than honorable conditions (West)?  What about his judgment (or desperation) in reaching for the disgraced Ben Carson as a possible GOP presidential candidate?

Ultimately, how insane is Cain to even imagine the GOP will allow an African-American as presidential candidate in the 21st Century? 

During the run-up to the 2008 General Election, I read a message on an AOL message board that is emblazoned in my grey matter. 

"White people will never elect a nigger president." 

Of course, the writer had a point as evidenced by the overwhelming exhibition of racism towards the nation's 44th President since before he took office. His comments have also been validated via GOP efforts to suppress the votes of African-Americans an Latinos. Yet, the dim-witted writer underestimated the intellect and social views of the majority of Americans (albeit it a very small majority).

That said, I feel very comfortable in my thoughts the GOP will not allow a black man or woman to head their presidential ticket until the natural changes in US demographics catches up with the Jurassic Era GOP.

Rasmussen Surfaces Again With Equally Unreliable Survey Reports

Rasmussen Reports Alumni!

More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites, Hispanics

Quite a headline isn't it?  Before we go farther allow me to reveal the source: Rasmussen Reports. Alas, the polling equivalent to Fox News.

Just after the 2012 General Elections the very credible Fordham University Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy, published results of an analysis of the best and worst political polling authorities.  View the list here.  If you chose not to visit the linked page, know that Rasmussen came-in among the bottom quarter of the 28 polling authorities. 

It is important to note, Rasmussen polled Mitt Romney winning the 2012 General Election from  campaign start to November 6, 2012.  We know the outcome of that polling.

After establishing Rasmussen as a non-credible and a virtual tool of conservative propaganda, it might be worthwhile to take a peep at the July 1 - 2 "Racism" survey call document. 

Questions - Racism - July 1-2, 2013

National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted July 1-2, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports

1* Are most white Americans racist?
2* Are most black Americans racist?
3* Are most Hispanic Americans racist?
4* Have you ever been accused of being a racist?
5* Does the term racism refer to any discrimination by people of one race against another or does racism refer only to discrimination by white people against minorities?
6* How would you rate race relations in America today - excellent, good, fair or poor?
7* Are race relations in America today getting better or worse?
8* Is it possible for people of different races in America to have an open and honest discussion about racial issues?
9* In political terms, do you consider yourself very conservative, somewhat conservative, moderate, somewhat liberal, or very liberal?

NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on July 1-2, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
We are going to run with selected excerpts from the Rasmussen survey for points of reference. You may spend time reading the survey results, if you so chose. Personally, I try to spend valuable time reading information that has some degree of credibility.  Rasmussen does not make my reading list.  I have linked the Rasmussen piece, here.


a.) Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans. 

b.) From a partisan perspective, 49% of Republicans see most black Americans as racist, along with 36% of unaffiliated adults and 29% of Democrats. 

c.) Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way. 
d.)  Among white adults, 10% think most white Americans are racist; 38% believe most blacks are racist, and 17% say most Hispanics are racist.
Items b.) and c.) above are prime examples of the level of ridiculous in Rasmussen survey results. The only fathomable way that a higher number of black respond "black people more racist" than white people (the essence of the Rasmussen headline above) would be for Rasmussen to have taped into a survey pool of the 6% of African-Americans who, for some equally unfathomable reason, subscribe to the GOP (as alleged conservatives). You have seen them sitting with (of all people) Sean Hannity slamming the black community and the Democratic Party.  You have heard them: Allen West, Herman Cain, Allen Keyes, Ben Carson, Boyce Watkins, et al.

Talking Points Memo addressed the Rasmussen survey.
49 percent of Republicans believe “most black Americans (are) racist,” according to Rasmussen.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: E.W. Jackson Joins The Fray And Embarrasses Many In His Party.

The Daily Caller on E. W. Jackson's outlandish and asinine rhetoric.
“The notion that I do not see a difference between slavery and abortion is preposterous,” he said.
The Honorable Pastor and Attorney E.W. Jackson.
E.W. Jackson: Nothing 'to rephrase or apologize for'

Would you like to see the extent to which the GOP has dissolved into guttural manifestations which are dangerous for the Untied States?   Of course, the examples are many, but let's focus on a politician/pastor/attorney who is following the path of Herman Cain, Allen West and Ben Carson (Anti-gay educator).  Any review of the latest GOP African-American mouthpiece has to follow a few very basic questions.

I. Why do African-Americans' who wish to pave a path in the GOP have to resort to dehumanizing exhibitions on contempt for others?

II. Why is it African-Americans who aspire to high places in the GOP have extensive levels of education, yet they seem to have a total disregard for others in the African-American Community?  

III. If any can locate information regrading the post 1980s GOPs, it is clearly obvious the listed "educated MEN" chose to practice selective history. "Selective History" that personally benefits each in his own selfish way.  Do they not realize that 96 % of African-Americans have reasons for their support of Democratic party?

In 2011 Herman Cain's blanket indictment of the black community as brainwashed, was uniquely revealing in the scope and depth of these men who have an affinity or their 92% white party.  The very same dynamics that leads to 96% African-American support for the Democratic Party are prevalent in the 92% population of the GOP. People live where they are comfortable and for reasons that satisfy their human psychological, social, and physical needs.

IV. Why is it the "Black Conservatives" (as they seem to have disdain for the words "African-American") never ever speak publicly about the horrible manifestations of overt racism from the Right?  Each of the "differentiators" ( "The Differentiator".... "Look at me, I am not like them.") listed above have leveled copious comments at the black community, agencies that provide support to eh black community and President Obama. 

Mediaite:   Cain to Neal Boortz....."Obama: Never Been A Part Of The Black Experience In America"

The Republican Jewish Coalition: Allen West, "Obama take road show down the road."

Maybe, West's remarks contributed to the 68 percent support for Obama in 2012. 

Allen West web page (that will not receive a link here) 
Allen West “The Obama administration is indeed aiding, enabling, and abetting our enemy, radical Islamic jihadists”
Really West, why are so very many of those same people now with their savior?
Ben Carson's ill-fated visit to the Lion's Den (Sean Hannity show).  

You must know, as do I, these men frequent Fox News for a reason. In addition to the probability the network truly espouses their views, they also know the network places each in the best position for their role as, "differentiator."   

Not one of these men has gone back on Fox News to deplore overt racism practiced by many in the GOP. Nor, has Fox News offered them a platform for such. Moreover, not one of the men has spoken publicly about the fact that Fox News often verges on matters of race via their number one propagandist Bill O'Reilly.

Yes, Jackson is the "New Black Guy" for the GOP out the great commonwealth of Virginia.

The video that starts this piece reveals much about  E.W. Jackson.  The New "Mouthpiece" takes his rhetoric and the depths of his sickening words are offered well beyond the friendly confines of Fox News.  Of course, I should say, to date; he will surely become a welcome guest starting this week.

Melissa Harris-Perry summed up Jackson in her latest Letter from Melissa segment over this past weekend. 

Can you imagine listening to Jackson pastor a congregation on Sunday morning?

Ben Carson Shows Deep Levels of Bigotry And Poor Judgement, Plus False Apology

"Gifted Hands"; Bigoted Mind.

Bill O'Reilly once used the politically confused Juan Williams for "Color" commentary regarding getting on a place and being "nervous" (about people who appear in Muslim garb) as "Muslims." Color commentary is most definitely a intended metaphor! Williams allowed himself to be used for backing Bill O'Reilly's overt racism and Williams paid the price of termination from NPR. All Muslims do not wear "Muslim Garb" and most airline suicide bombers have not worn traditional muslim garb. Factually, most European Muslims do not wear such garb.  That sheds considerable light on Williams' racism.  It should not have taken Einstein like brilliance to understand terrorist are coached to appear as they are not.  O'Reilly stooge. Williams was serving as an on-air flatulence clearing butt-boy for Bill O'Reilly. Of course, FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) hired the 'color commentator'; immediately as I am sure O'Reilly felt his 'butt-boy" had suffered for running interference and picking up O'Reilly's fumble.

We have seen Herman Cain on public platform claim his is a "brother from another mother to the Koch Brothers." 

The right has of late done a yeoman's job of finding and proliferating African-Americans who stand to reap major celebrity, income, and notoriety via utterance of ridiculously 'sick' comments.  Alas the Right has found one who carries credentials at the PhD, M.D. level to join the likes of Ron Paul and Rand Paul.  I should quickly add the quality of political an social cognition from the GOP's latest spokesperson is not much an improvement of the Paul and Paul. 

Ben Carson delivered the keynote speech at a prayer breakfast yet feet from a documented racist in Jeff Sessions (R) AL, and the 44th President of the United States of America. We linked the speech in case you have interest.  My thoughts on his words: 27 minutes of "Yawn."

And, as is customarily the case the latest GOP Frankenstein Monsters has already blown-up in the face.  He has hit the trail with early apologies for bigoted remarks and innuendo against liberals which are not born-out by facts.  while complete reading is not necessary follow the good doctors, mind-boggling bigotry and offensive remarks. I wonder if he practices as such when his patients to not fit his paradigms of acceptability.
Ben Carson On Fox: "No Group, Be They Gays," NAMBLA, Or Bestiality Supporters, Gets To Change Definition Of Marriage (Link) 
Ben Carson Attempts To Explain Away Controversial Marriage Equality Remarks, Apologizes "If Anybody Was Offended" (Link) 
Ben Carson Goes On The Offensive, Lashes Out At "Racist" Critics (Link)
Media Matters has reported on the good doctors cognitive constipation accompanied by oral diarrhea. 

Dr. Ben Carson, after comparing marriage equality advocates to supporters of pedophilia and bestiality, and then apologizing "if anybody was offended" by those remarks, and then attacking his critics as "racist[s]" who were trying to portray him as a bigot, is back to apologizing for his "offensive" comments. 
According to New York magazine, Carson, a professor of neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical School and nascent right-wing media star, sent an email to "the Hopkins Community" saying that he is "sorry for any embarrassment" his anti-gay comments may have caused them. 
But what really saddens me is that my poorly chosen words caused pain for some members of our community and for that I offer a most sincere and heartfelt apology. Hurting others is diametrically opposed to who I am and what I believe. There are many lessons to be learned when venturing into the political world and this is one I will not forget. Although I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman, there are much less offensive ways to make that point. I hope all will look at a lifetime of service over some poorly chosen words. 
Carson's apologetic email was sent just "a few minutes" after Paul Rothman, Johns Hopkins' dean of medical faculty, sent his own email calling Carson's remarks "hurtful, offensive," and "inconsistent with the culture of our institution."

Paul Rothman, Johns Hopkins' dean of medical faculty (Washington Post) on Carson offensive remarks.

It should be noted in case you missed a key fact, Carson did not apologize until shortly after his managing Dean declared his remarks offensive. I find that typically Republican, commonly false, and existentially insincere. If the heat had not reached down to his level, the rest of the nation may not have heard his phony words of apology. The good doctor is no Sarah Palin, Gohmert, King, Bachmann, Gingrich, trump, nor Perry. He has great cognitive abilities that are often used to carefully craft poignant messages to patients and students His attempt to use the increasingly common words, of "I misspoke, what I meant to say....." reminds me very much of Mitt Romney's post Boca Raton comments.

In March of this year Romney spoke with FoxPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network):
Mother Jones

In an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News that aired on Sunday, Romney was once again asked about the video Mother Jones revealed last September. Here's the exchange:

Wallace: George Will said you've got a problem when voters don't like you. You've got a real problem when voters think you don't like them.
Romney: Yes, it was a very unfortunate statement that I made. It's not what I meant. I didn't express myself as I wished I would have. You know, when you speak in private, you don't spend as much time thinking about how something could be twisted and distorted and—and it could come out wrong and be used. But, you know, I did. And it was very harmful. What I said is not what I believe. Obviously, my whole campaign—my whole life has been devoted to helping people, all of the people. I care about all the people of the country. But that hurt. There's no question that hurt and did real damage to my campaign.
While we at times hear such form the Left, It seems to me we hear or read a false apology from the Right almost on a weekly basis.   Of course, President Obama has today apologized for referring to the California State Attorney General as the most attractive of them all.  A not-so-smart remark from the president, but his remarks pale in relation to the vitriolic drivel from the Right.

Mario Piperni: Captures Herman Cain On Fox

Within the past 30 minutes,  I have confirmed it is impossible to type or keyboarding you prefer while gut rolling laughing.   After receiving an email notification that our "friend" Mario Piperni posted a new piece, I clicked over to mariopipernidotcom

Clicking over to the web page led to immediate laughter.  (See below).  After the visual, read the piece and after reading the piece, get the full impact of Mario's piece with the Fox Entertainment and Propaganda Network's O'Reilly running "setup" man for Herman Cain lunacy.  

Herman Cain’s Idiot Quote of the Day

Herman Cain - Sarah Palin - Fox    :
This is rich. No other than Mr. Ignoramus, the pizza man himself, Herman Cain, tried to make the case on Fox News that the reason that President Obama won reelection was because 51 percent of the population is severely ignorant. Which 51 percent is that? Well, the 51 percent that voted for Barack Obama in 2012 of course.
“We have a severe ignorance problem with the people who are so mesmerized by his [Obama's] popularity that they’re not looking at the facts. Martin Luther King Jr. said fifty years ago in 1963 something that is so appropriate to today, “There is nothing more dangerous than serious ignorance”, and that’s what we have and he [Obama] gets away with it…”.
When Fox got rid of Sarah Palin and Dick Morris, there was hope by some that Roger Ailes had finally come to understand that stupid talk by uninformed ‘analysts’ was not the way to go in this new age of Obama. Sure they still had Hannity and O’Reilly and Doocy and Guilfoyle and Bolling and Gutfeld and Tantaros and Varney and many, many more to breathe life into the hermetically sealed Bubble of Ignorance that many on the right call home…but hey, they fired Palin. That was a start to saner times for Fox, wasn’t it?
Apparently not because they turned right around and hired a person who could very well be the dumbest, least informed, most shameless political figure to ever take a stab at the White House – Herman Cain. Herman Freakin’ Cain! Can you believe that?
The man who said, “…when they ask me who is the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan I’m going to say, you know, I don’t know” will now be educating Fox News viewers on foreign policy.
The guy who quoted Pokemon, “A poet once said, ‘Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line‘”, at a Republican presidential debate will be doing deep political analysis on the major issues of the day and Fox viewers will be none the wiser. They’ll be told stuff by a know-nothing doofus and they’ll take in every word as if it were the gospel truth because…well, because they’re Fox viewers and that is what they do.
So for all of you who wouldn’t waste a second of your time watching Fox but would love to recapture some of those crazy magical moments of sheer stupidity from the Republican primary…here’s a little Herman Cain. Enjoy.

God Screws Up – Michele Bachmann Leaves Race

Cross posted from


And then there were six.

When first announcing her candidacy to become the Republican presidential nominee, Michele Bachmann claimed that God had asked her to run. And so the question becomes, was God messing with her or is Bachmann one crazy lady? I’m thinking it’s the latter.

Her farewell speech highlighted her delusional ways in grand fashion with references to taking back the country, repealing Obamacare, (etc.)…because, “Mr. Franklin and all the Founders, all the men, all the women, who have given their last full measure of devotion…and our military, our veterans are watching us…and the God who created us…to keep our Republic free.”

Assassinate the f****n n****r and his monkey children”.
Apparently, the heart-felt racism of Jules Manson, Libertarian-Ron Paul supporter, has landed him a visit from the Secret Service. The New York Daily News reported within the hour...
The failed city council candidate who urged the assassination of President Obama and his "monkey children" got a visit from the Secret Service at his southern California trailer, he claimed.

Fox News: A Driver for the GOP Primary?

Fox News takes the lead in parading towards the eventual selection of the GOP Presidential candidate. You and I know that Fox News is truly not a news network. from the top down it is a political entity and serves effectively as a public relations wing of the Party. Do you need more convincing for your (already) accurate perception.

It is clear the entire crew on that hyperbolic morning show was scripted as a Fox News commercial. Morris has proven he is a “pay-to-player’ based on this recent admissions that he has accepted money from both Palin and Cain camps in the past. I can only assume that such monetary receipts were for endorsements and supportive comments.

Is He For Real? The Demise Of Citizen Cain And Lessons For America

Cross posted from

November 30, 2011

As we view the continuing saga of a dissolving Herman Cain, evidence of his demise sprouts a new leaf. Before Cain’s campaign killing allegations of an affair hit the airways, the candidate had secured an important media opportunity. Apparently, Matt Lauer, Barbara Walters, Bill O’Reilly and (of all people) Greta Van Susteren, and others had agreed to join a group of media personalities for a New York City dinner. Cain has now cancelled the dinner.
