Lyndon Johnson knew exactly what he was doing and it worked, now Ferguson will endure a riot that should never happen.
The best thing that could happen here is for respectable blacks to take the side of the police. As I’ve pointed out before, the biggest obstacle to black people in America now is this stubborn racial solidarity that leads otherwise sensible people to defend savagery. Italians, Irish, Jews, Poles and other “ethnics” used WW2 as a chance to abandon their ethnic identity and become simply Americans. That often meant abandoning their old neighborhoods and their old neighbors. If you wanted to be a hood, the respectable Irish/Italians/Jews/etc wanted nothing to do with you.

Blacks have gone the other way and placed racial solidarity above all else. Defending ghetto culture may have been necessary in the 50’s, but it is self-defeating today. But, the ruling class needs the blacks to stay at the bottom of the social hierarchy so this is unlikely to change. Ben Carson is shunned by respectable white liberals, but Al Sharpton gets a prime time TV show. Keep Reading…
Just stop it! Monica Lewinskys latest claim that she was bullied by internet users is absolute garbage.
She knew what she was doing.
She was having an affair with a married US President.
She was a young intern out for the spotlight.
She got it.
Monica Lewinsky was the one person who could bring down a sitting President, she chose to go the victim route, after extreme pressure to be sure. Was she a victim….no. Was he a sexual predator….yes. Should he have been thrown out of office for lying to congress, a federal judge, and the American people, on national television…..absofuckinglutley!
She just needs to shut the hell up and get on with whatever life is left to her. As far as I am concerned she is a national embarrassment…along with her then boyfriend Bill. No one to blame but herself.by jeffli6 with 6 comments
After four years of failed policy and the disaster that is Obamacare many people were shocked when Barack Obama won re-election in 2012. There were rumors of voter fraud in precincts where more people voted than actually existed.
Then there’s this:
Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.
“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. Keep Reading….
I can understand a glitch on one vote, but every single vote for Republican changed to a Democrat? One looks back at 2012 and wonders.by jeffli6 with 2 comments
The Cult is finding out the man they made President was woefully unprepared for the job. Now they are beginning to realize that President Obama doesn’t really care about other democrats either, he is worried about Barack Obama…..period…..karma can be a bitch.
As the election approaches everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong. Not only did Obama’s aggressive efforts to stoke racial unrest on the border and in Ferguson to turn out the minority voters who generally sit out midterm elections backfire, but the resulting messes deepened the popular impression that he was in over his head. Now instead of pivoting from Global Warming to a minimum wage to some offensive thing that some local Republican somewhere said, the media is stuck in an Ebola-ISIS cycle that reminds Americans on a daily basis that everything really is out of control.
The critiques from even friendly media outlets keep throwing around words and terms like “detached”, “in over his head”, “flailing” and “too smart for his own good”. That word salad adds up to the same message as the one being peddled by Leon Panetta; America needs strong experienced leadership.
And Obama isn’t it.
Obama has done a great deal for the political agendas of the left while doing a great deal of damage to the political ambitions of the Democratic Party. And the Democratic Party won’t forget that. Hereby jeffli6 with 1 comment
Couldn’t have said it better myself….enjoy:
Anyhow, If your ass is stamped at the Identity factory as a Lesbian Democrat Progressive – go straight to the head of the class…you can do whatever the fuck you want. You’re not just a Mayor – You’re SOOOOOOPER mayor – because….. you’re a “gaywomandemocratlesbianprogressive”!!1111!!! You’re freaking special sunshine and doncha’ forget it !!
By George….You’re protected under the guise of prognazi tolerance and holier than thou mantras to the point that you can utterly trash the 1st amendment civil rights of those you have ideological disagreements with. Go on, you’re special enough to bring the full weight of the Government “Justice” system to bear and completely deny your targets any of their civil rights any old time you choose to.
Er, wait maybe not.
Here’s a refresher for the “Honorable” Mayor of Huston and her Nazi henchmen in the DA’s office that even thought this demanding of religious sermons might pass the smell test… who seem hell bent on trampling on various clergy members free speech civil rights for the heinous crimes of daring to disagree with the LGBT crowd.
1st Amendment of the US Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
What I do know however is ….The only proper response to one of these so called subpoena is – Fuck you. Sideways. Twice on Tuesday. Bring the mall ninjas if you want to try to “enforce” it …but there will be blood running in the streets of Huston when it is done – Ours or yours it don’t matter – but someone’s getting a bloody nose here. Because frankly…The whole Christian “turn the other cheek and hate the sin love the sinner” thingy – well folks sorry to say this, that’s not working so well these days.
Houstonians should be out there firing up the Tar barrels and plucking them some feathers because there’s a few folks just begging for a good old fashioned tar and feathering in City Hall. Hereby jeffli6 with 2 comments
My head is spinning. We have an election coming up and the GOP has so much ammunition to take down Obama Democrats we should have another 2010 landslide, but I can’t stop worrying about how bad an Ebola outbreak would be, I can’t shake how unnerving this is. All of the other issues seem small in comparison.
Having said that, what if Obamas epic incompetent handling of the situation is a distraction aimed at taking the other issues of the table? It’s so far fetched that the even the most ardent right wing nut wouldn’t consider that this was done on purpose.
But what if? Nawww…couldn’t be.

Out of all of the clusterfucks Obama has had his hand in, this one seems to be the worst case of incompetence ever foisted on the American people. He is the one who can enact a travel ban with the stroke of a pen yet he continues to keep our borders open, even in the face of a potential deadly epidemic. This summer, the U.S. government imposed a travel ban on Israel simply to pressure Prime Minister Netanyahu into accepting a ceasefire agreement. If we can’t fire him now, we have lost our way as a country.
Ann Coulter sums it all up nicely:
Why, precisely, must we attack Ebola in Africa? Research on a cure doesn’t require cuddling victims in their huts. Scientists who discovered the AIDS cocktail didn’t spend their nights at Studio 54 in order to “fight the disease at its source.”
Merlin further explained the travel ban, saying that if West Africans can’t fly to America, “that would cause the disease to grow in that area and spill over into other countries.” So instead of infecting people in surrounding countries, our CDC wants them to come here and infect Americans.
But that won’t happen because the government assures us there’s nothing to worry about with Ebola. They’ve got it under control.
Unfortunately, everything the government says about this disease keeps being proved untrue — usually within a matter of days.
At the moment, more than 13,000 West Africans have travel visas to come to the U.S. Having just seen an Ebola-infected Liberian get $500,000 worth of free medical treatment in the U.S., the first thing any African who might have Ebola should do is get himself to America.
Of all the reasons people have for coming here — welfare, drug-dealing, Medicare scams — “I have Ebola and I’m going to die, otherwise” is surely one of the strongest. The entire continent of Africa now knows that this is a country that will happily spend half a million dollars on treating someone who just arrived — and then berate itself for not doing enough.
Thomas Eric Duncan’s family may be upset with his treatment, but they have to admit, the price was right. Medical bill: $0.00. Your next statement will arrive in 30 days. found hereby jeffli6 with 6 comments
After posting about this second nurse traveling after being exposed, come to find out she was given permission by the CDC. WTF???
The CDC apparently gave Vinson the OK to fly because she was showing no other signs of Ebola other than a low-grade fever.
A health official admitted that someone “dropped the ball.” More from CBS News:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn’t 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn’t officially fall into the group of “high risk” and was allowed to fly.
Officials in the U.S. have been trying to calm fears over the Ebola crisis, but time and again events have overtaken their assurances.
“She wasn’t bleeding or vomiting,” CDC Director Tom Frieden said. “The level of risk around her would be extremely low, but because of the extra margin of safety, we will be contacting [all those who were on the flight].”
How fucking high does the risk need to be? Frieden should be fired or resign.
The Ebola virus has infected another nurse…..who flew on a commercial flight two days ago. Are you kidding me?
132 people were on that flight. Where did they go? Who did they interact with? Do they have pets? And now for the big question, how in the hell did the CDC allow anyone who worked with “patient zero” to leave a quarantine let alone travel? If this is the CDC’s protocol then you can expect a serious outbreak. I don’t know who is more incompetent, the CDC for not setting limitations on health workers or the nurse thinking it was OK to travel knowing she potentially could be infected. My God what is wrong with these people?
Now let this sink in:
A statement from National Nurses United on the treatment of Dallas Ebola patient said that “nurses were asked to call the Infectious Disease Department” to learn the policies on how to treat Duncan.
There was no mandate for nurses to attend training or what nurses had to do in the event of arrival of a patient with Ebola-like symptoms.” And “there was no hands-on training on the use of personal protective equipment for Ebola, no training on the symptoms to look for, no training on what questions to ask.”
The statement further says that trainings that took place after Duncan was diagnosed were “limited,” and did not include training on how to avoid contamination for all nurses. Here
Despite this nurse obviously being a “High Risk” case — I assume she was, anyway; if she was not on the High Risk list, that opens up a huge Pandora’s box of questions — she was not, apparently, restrained from flying (despite being within the 21 days when ebola is present but not symptomatic), nor were any special precautions before boarding (taking her temperature), nor did the CDC tell Frontier Air to decontaminate its planes.
But hey man — she was being “closely monitored” out of “an abundance of caution.” Here
On October 12th — before this nurse made her return voyage via airplane from Cleveland to Fort Worth — Fox News reported she’d had the ebola-like symptom of a “low-grade fever.”
The CDC did not stop her from traveling. The CDC, as far as we know, did not apparently advise the airline to check her temperature before flying, because if she had, how the hell would she have been allowed on the plane?
She was a high-risk case now showing ebola symptoms getting on a plane full of 132 people.
Oh, and you’ll be happy to know that plane then flew around without being thoroughly cleaned and without being decontaminated a whole bunch more trips.
Or maybe this:
But hey Obama and his administration claims all is well, the federal governments in charge, yep that same government who can’t build a web site.by jeffli6 with 7 comments
