ANALYSIS/OPINION:
I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?
Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?
No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency. 

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault. 

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve tried that.  Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.   I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions. 

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community. 

I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing. 

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it.  The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it. 

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played..  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then..  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property..  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is what the Left wants.

 Do BlackLives Matter

It is your job to determine if this is a racist rant or just a review of factual data….
WHAT IF ALL THE BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:
Amount of people in poverty would drop – 34%,
The prison population would go down by -37%,
Welfare recipients would go down by – – – 42%,
Gang members would go down by – – – – – 53%
Chlamydia cases would go down – – – – – – 54%,
Homelessness would go down – – – – – – – -57%
Syphilis would go down  – – – – – – – – – – – – 58%.
AIDS & HIV would go down by – – – – – – – -65%,
Gonorrhea would go down – – – – – – – – – – -69%,
Average ACT scores would go UP – – – – – 5.5 points.
Average IQ would go UP – – – – – – – – – – – -7.4 points,  putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan,
Average SAT scores would go UP almost – – – – -100 points,
The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year,
BUT DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 26% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!!
And, many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!
Yes, Black lives DO matter!

America’s next alt-left holiday assault comes on Thanksgiving

And should it come to pass – this alt-left Turkey Day
protest – remember Saul’s Rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s
most potent weapon.”

By –October 11, 2017

 

The next holiday targeted by America’s alt-left will be Thanksgiving, November 23.
October 19th passed with only minor damage to the latest target of the social warriors – Christopher Columbus – as Bob Lee statues across the U.S. welcomed the temporary reprieve.A few cities in the Lower 48 got deep into the spirit of anti-Columbus Day (CD) with a substitution: Indigenous Peoples’ Day (IDP).
In 2019, Los Angeles County will officially celebrate IDP as the alternative to CD.  But they’ll need to call it Dia de los Pueblos Indigenas.  It’s not known if the town name for Columbus, Ohio will be changed. Or, if the Columbus-derivative name for Washington, District of Columbia will become something else, besides “The Swamp”.
Columbia University is unlikely to entertain a move to change its derivative name. But you can’t blame them since Columbia University is proudly displayed in wood-framed diplomas on a host of paneled office walls across the world. Indigenous Peoples’ University would be…well, inaccurate. Only 3% of the Columbia U. 2021 graduating class is identified as “Native American.”
The 19 members of the Human Rights Faculty at Columbia U. don’t seem to include a single, overtly, indigenous person. Perhaps, like Massachusetts’ U.S. Senator Elizabeth Ann Warren, one or two of the profs claim a bit of Indigenous DNA. Or, at least, have read a book once about American Indians, or seen a John Wayne western. But there’s still time to hire an Indigenous Faculty person before next…Columbus-Indigenous Day…in the hyphenated spirit of diversity.

Vengeance: A Warning About a Dangerous World

Originally published at Fox News.

We are living in an incredibly dangerous world. In fact, this may be the most dangerous period since the Cuban Missile Crisis. Think about these two real-life situations:
The North Koreans reportedly stole hundreds of gigabytes of important military information in a cyberattack on South Korea last September – including information about potential U.S.-South Korean wartime plans. At the same time, the rogue nation appears to be moving forward with its nuclear weapons program – even celebrating the anniversary of its first nuclear weapon test on Monday.
In the Middle East, Iran has aggressively worked to bolster and spread its influence, all the while reportedly supporting North Korea’s nuclear program as well as radical Islamic terrorist groups across the globe. According to the State Department, Iran remains the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.  Now, imagine what a fully nuclear-armed North Korea would mean for the world. The rogue nation already reportedly has intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach its traditional foes in the region, and possibly a U.S. city. This alone puts millions of lives at risk, but even more would be at risk if the North Koreans are able to build a nuclear-armed ICBM and nuclear conflict breaks out.
Setting aside North Korea’s launch capabilities, consider how perilous things could get if Pyongyang started to more actively work with terrorists and the nations that support them. Nuclear weapons, or even nuclear material, in the hands of international terrorists creates an entirely new, very different threat.

Final Farewell Posting from John Casey


This is my final statement addressing why I am ending my participation
in the climate change debate and is in follow-up to my email a month
ago announcing my stroke.

Best Regards,
John Casey

Dear Friends,

Effective today, October 7, 2017,  I have decided to end my aggressive, demanding, ten year long effort to warn my fellow citizens to prepare for a coming cold climate and associated historic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

This decision is based on the extent of my disability from a stroke I had a little over a month ago and two medical emergencies from stroke related internal organ problems I have experienced in the past two weeks while still in the hospital.

Realistically, I must now devote 100% of my time to a lengthy recovery and end any potentially stressful work that may cause yet another stroke.

Please continue to rely on the many online videos that exist of my public presentations or interviews and my books, “Dark Winter,” and “Upheaval!” to provide you information on how to prepare for what I believe will be a challenging future.

 It has been my great honor to have served you during the past decade. Further, I want to say that I have been humbled by the outpouring of support I have received from thousands of Americans who have come to my side over the years – extending their friendship and appreciation for my crusade for truth in climate science.

I wish you all the best as we enter the next predicted cold climate and associated historic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Good bye and Best Wishes,

John  Casey

Disney and its properties, from ESPN to Marvel, obsessively push left-wing politics while alienating their own customers

By BombThrowers——Previous Articles–October 6, 2017

Disney CEO: we’ve given ESPN license to push left-wing politics

A fish rots from the head. So does Disney.
If you want to understand why Disney and its properties, from ESPN to Marvel, obsessively push left-wing politics while alienating their own customers, there are worse places to start than with Disney’s Darth Vader, CEO Bob Iger.

Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company has said he stands behind ESPN’s politically-vocal employee Jamele Hill, and has empathy for those NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem…

Iger also revealed that he intervened in support of Jamele Hill.

“I’ve not ever experienced prejudice and certainly not racism,” Iger went on, “so it’s hard for me to understand what they’re feeling about this, what it feel like to experience racism, so I felt that we need to take into account what Jemele and other people at ESPN were feeling at this time. That resulted in us not taking action on the Tweet that she put out.”

Iger also acknowledged the NFL athletes who have lately not been standing for the national anthem, and those other ESPN employees who feel strongly on the subject, saying, “I think athletes in many cases feel that they have an obligation. Having earned the voice that they’ve earned as successful athletes, to speak out on various issues that are meaningful to them, so we’ve given ESPN license to do it.”

License is indeed a good word.
Meanwhile, Iger would also like to push for gun control.

TIME TO TWITTER MR IGER AND TELL HIM WHAT YOU THINK:    DISNEY CEO  @RobertIger

Hillary Clinton is embarrassingly wrong. Surely Democrats must be tired of her attempts to remain in the political spotlight.

HILLARY CLINTON IS THE GOP GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING

Hillary Clinton refuses to accept reality and is desperately trying to cling to political relevance. She has enjoyed a lifetime of political privilege as a First Lady, a United States Senator, a Secretary of State and a presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. Sadly, she was awarded all of these prestigious positions because
 of her husband, not due to her own merit.
On her own, Hillary Clinton is a disastrous loser. In fact, she is the most famous two-time presidential loser in U.S. history who should have received a clear message from the American people. The voters of this country do not want her to be President of the United States

Hillary Clinton cannot move past her election loss and will not “go quietly into that good night.”

In 2008, she lost the Democratic Party nomination to an unknown and unproven United States Senator. In 2016, as the infamous email disclosure proved, Clinton was the beneficiary of a corrupt Democratic Party nomination process. Despite having a Democratic National Committee giving her every advantage, and CNN giving her advance notice of debate questions, Hillary Clinton barely defeated an elderly socialist Senator for her party’s nomination. In the general election, she lost the presidency to a political novice, Donald Trump, who was facing incredible disadvantages.
Clearly, Hillary Clinton cannot move past her election loss and will not “go quietly into that good night.” She is a bitter loser, who is mad at the world and especially livid at the American people. As part of her media tour promoting her new book, “What Happened,” Hillary was recently interviewed for the Irish television program, “Late, Late Show.” Hillary claimed that the loss was “excruciating.” She admitted that she did not even prepare a concession speech and that the loss left her in a “state of shock.”
Obviously, Hillary and her campaign team were overconfident. They believed the phony polls and the false praise from the leftist media. They were facing a candidate, who was derided as a former reality television star and was being destroyed on a daily basis by a hostile media.
While Clinton had a united Democratic Party supporting her, Trump had to deal with a divided Republican Party. In the campaign, Hillary spent almost twice as much money as Donald Trump and was advised by an experienced team of professionals, as well as her husband, who was elected President of the United States twice.
