Democrats could learn alot from Jim Webb

New Page 1

"The Democrats could mess up a one-car funeral. "


Writes Pamela D. Reed in an article entitled, "Democrats are their own worst
enemy" published on Jan. 6th, 2009 in The Daily Voice an online publication
that bills itself as "Black America's Daily News Source"

Reed continues…

"As a child, I knew a mortician who was fond of saying this about anyone he
deemed inept. It basically meant that the person in question could screw-up
even the most simple task.

And watching the spectacle of the Democrats, at both the national and state
level, in the wake of the jaw-dropping victory of Barack Obama as America's
first Black President, I have new appreciation for the undertaker's sentiment.

What else can you say about a political party that could manage to make
Obama's transition and the run-up to his historic inauguration a second-tier
story? And, further, that would allow embattled Illinois Governor Rod
Blagojevich to make them look like contemporary, real life Keystone Cops?

And say what you will about Blago, his choice of Roland Burris to fill Obama's
vacant U. S. Senate seat was, tactically, a master stroke. Sure, morally and
ethically it may have been a questionable move. Still, he just out-and-out
outsmarted the Democrats. Flat-out.

Mind you, this is a party that has not had much to celebrate for several
election cycles, what with George W. Bush's eight-year train wreck of an
administration, during much of which the Republicans controlled both houses of
the Congress--and many state houses.

And now that they are poised to be in control of the White House (and did I
mention the Democratic President-elect is Black), and they hold majorities in
both Houses in Congress, what are they doing these days? Are they reveling in
their magnificent, historic November victories or, better still, strategizing
the great American Renaissance? Wouldn't that be nice?

Instead, they are trying to kill each other, figuratively of course.

On the first day of the 111th Congress, with 34 new and re-elected United
States Senators being sworn in, and with Obama's inauguration in less than two
weeks, what is the lead story? It is the sight of Roland Burris, a 71 year-old
Black man, former Illinois Attorney General, no less--the first African
American to hold that state-wide office-- and arguably the junior senator from
Illinois, standing in the rain, conducting a press conference on Capitol Hill,
announcing that his Senate "credentials are not in order and will not be
accepted." This after the Senate secretary and sergeant-at-arms informed
Burris that he would be denied access to the Senate floor. Presently Burris,
the esquire, is weighing his legal options.

Timothy W. Wright III, a Burris attorney, summarized it thus. "Our credentials
were rejected by the secretary of the Senate. We were not allowed to be placed
in the record books. We were not allowed to proceed to the floor for purposes
of taking oath. All of which we think was improperly done and is against the
law of this land. We will consider our options and we will certainly let you
know what our decisions will be soon thereafter."

Alas, Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, now finds himself--fairly or
not--being likened to George Wallace and his infamous 1963 "Stand in the
Schoolhouse Door" when he attempted to keep two Black students from enrolling
at the University of Alabama, then segregated."

(Read the article in its entirety by clicking on the link below)

Of course Roland Burris was finally admitted into the U.S. Sentate and say
what you want about the man, he handled the controversy like a gentleman, he
didn't pitch a fit, he didn't resort to dramatics, he simply adopted a wait
and see attitude maintaining that he felt he would eventually be seated.

The title of Mrs. Reed's article "The Democrats are their own worst enemy"
again came to mind as I heard Reverend Lowery's benediction during President
Obama's inauguration and yet again when I heard Obama economic adviser's
comments regarding where the rest of the economic stimulus money should go.

Perhaps the Colorado Gazzette summed it up best in an Editorial that appeared
in its January 23, 2009 issue which stated…

"Some liberals are obsessed with race. It's all they can think about. So
here's the state of our nation, after the election of our first post-racial

The Opinion piece continues…

"In an otherwise fabulous inauguration ceremony, the Rev. Joseph Lowery, a
Methodist minister who's black, shocked the masses when he infused racism into
a prayer. He asked God "to help us work for that day when black will not be
asked to get back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow,
when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is

The vast majority of white people almost always do what's right, Rev. Lowery.
In fact, there's no reason to believe that white people embrace what's right
with less frequency than brown, yellow, red or black people do" Finally the
Gazzette wraps up their Editorial by stating:

"Upstaging Lowery's racist remarks were those of presidential economic adviser
Robert Reich - labor secretary under President Bill Clinton - who advocated a
racist approach to President Obama's proposed economic stimulus plan while
meeting with members of Congress this month.

"I am concerned, as I'm sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to
high skilled people who are already professional or to white male construction
workers," Reich said. "Criteria can be set, so that the money does go to
others, the long term unemployed minorities, women, people who are not
necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals" So white men
who pound nails and pour cement are the villainous ruling class now, and they
must be denied federal largesse because of their skills and professionalism.
And making sure they get no pork will be Reich, a man born into privilege who
graduated Dartmouth, Oxford and Yale, after attending one of the finest high
schools in New York.


This enormously wealthy man - who's white as white can be and born with a
silver spoon in his mouth - wants to make sure the government goes out of its
way to exclude hard-working, blue-collar men who happen to be white.

Racism and sexism don't get bolder than that."

Agreed, it doesn't get any bolder than that, or more stupid, or more reckless
in my opinion. The Democratic Party is alienating its base, all of it.
Offending black Americans by trying to refuse Burris his appointed Senate
seat, and then offending blue collar white construction workers by implying
that they don't "do what's right" and slapping them even harder with Mr.
Reich's comments that they are undeserving of stimulus money.


"Daddy was a veteran a Southern Democrat , they ought to get a rich man to
vote like that" sang the country music group Alabama in their much revered
"Song of the South"

Thanks to Reverend Lowery and Robert Reich, it is unlikely that a "rich man",
a "black man" or a "white construction worker" will be voting for the
Democrats in the future, unless they get their act together.

A good place to start would be looking at the example that Senator Jim Webb
(D) Virginia has set.

His PAC website,
carries the news that Sen. Webb was recently named one of the 75 most
influential people in the world stating:

 "Jim Webb, Democrat of Virginia, has done more to repair his party's
relationship with the military than anyone since the Democrats ran afoul of
the rank and file during the Vietnam era by appearing not so much antiwar as
antimilitary. Webb's new GI Bill, passed this year, will treat returning Iraq
veterans much the same way World War II veterans were treated when the GI Bill
was first conceived.

A highly decorated marine in Vietnam, a secretary of the Navy under Reagan,
and an early favorite to be Barack Obama's running mate, Webb withdrew from
consideration, saying that he was content in the Senate, prompting Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid to tell us: "Jim Webb is that rarity in Washington.
He knows himself." Which is why he will have the ear of whoever wins the

For all his varied and influential career in public service, Senator Webb, the
author of nine books, thinks of himself first and foremost as a writer, and
says the rigor and watchfulness required of writing influences all of his work
in Washington."

Senator Webb is a rarity in Washington, but he doesn't need Senator Reed to
tell him that, in fact he'd probably be better off without Reed's endorsement
but the fact remains that Webb sets an example that the Democrats should be
paying attention to, a traditional centrist in his politics, who fights for
America's military and working class.

The Real Barack...

From MyWayNews, Jan. 20th, 2009:

" WASHINGTON (AP) - Barack Hussein Obama claimed his place in history as America's first black president Tuesday, summoning a dispirited and divided nation to unite in hope against the "gathering clouds and raging storms" of unfinished war and grave economic woe. A jubilant crowd of more than a million waited for hours in frigid temperatures to witness the moment as a young black man with a foreign-sounding name took command of a nation founded by slaveholders.

It was a scene watched in fascination by many millions - perhaps billions - around the world.

"We gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord," the nation's 44th president said."

My God! Does it EVER end? Barack Obama, excuse me, I mean President Barack Hussein Obama and those that have lifted him up as some kind of savior are no longer content in embellishing his struggles growing up, now he has had to face the great obstacle of slavery, "a nation founded by slave holders" as My Way News writer Jennifer Loven (or is it "Love-In") put it.

President (damn it still hurts to write the words) Obama on the campaign trail denounced his association with the racist Reverend Wright (Black Supremacist) and that was good enough for the media, the Liberals and those that just plain didn't want to accept the reality of the situation.
Everything was supposed to be cleared up; right? Even though Obama attended Trinity Unity Church of Christ for over 20 years, it didn't mean anything.

Well for those of you who believed his rhetoric then (and now), for those of you who wrote off his association with men like Wright, Phleger and Ayres, how do you explain his choice of the good Reverend Joseph Lowery to offer the benediction at today's inauguration, who by the way, ended the benediction by saying:

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

When "White will embrace what's right?"
Kiss my ass "Reverend", what in the hell do you call affirmative action, Fanny Mae, Freddy Mac, Medicaid , Medicare, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 etc. etc. etc. etc.

Who in their right mind would believe President Obama when he says, "we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord", and then turn around and let some Black Supremacist hack like Joseph Lowery give the benediction?

I pay my taxes, I work, my father worked even harder, breaking his back so that "white could do what's right", accepted no hand outs from "Uncle Sam", yet payed for all of the hand outs so that others (like Reverend Lowery) could sit on their ass.

Israel Bombs the UN!

Israel Bombs Gaza UN Building…

“Amnesty demands probe into Israeli bombing of UN building 1/16/2009 10:22 AM ET

(RTTNews) - Amnesty International has demanded an immediate and independent inquiry into the Israeli army's shelling of UN installations in Gaza City that disrupted providing humanitarian aid to suffering Palestinian civilians and injuring UN workers.The headquarters of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was partially destroyed and three of its employees were injured in Thursday's attack.The UN aid agency's warehouse containing food and medicines was destroyed as the two shells from an Israeli tank caused fire."The attack on UNRWA, apparently targeting a clearly- identified humanitarian compound, underscores the need for an impartial and thorough investigation", said Malcolm Smart, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Program, in a press release issued late Thursday

He warned: "Deliberate attacks on humanitarian assistance facilities or personnel may constitute a war crime."Friday, a New York-based human rights group termed Israel's artillery shelling into crowded Gaza areas as indiscriminate attacks. Human Rights Watch said Israel sometimes fires 155-milimeter artillery shells at gunmen, who often operate from crowded areas. A military analyst with the group said that the shells can kill people up to 150 meters away.”

Way to go Israel! Now, how much would you charge to do the same thing to the UN building in New York City?

Oh and I wouldn’t worry about “War Crimes”, it’s kind of like Dave Chapelle said when he did his now famous “Black Bush” skit…

“If you don’t like it {referring to the UN} then sanction me, sanction me with your army. Oh wait; You don’t have an army! So why don’t you just shut the {expletive} up!”

Effort to rename Jeff Davis Street in Selma, Al. Stalls

"SELMA -- Relatives and friends of one of Alabama's first black lawyers asked a city panel Tuesday night to honor him by renaming a street that now car­ries the name of Confederate President Jefferson Davis .

Those wanting to honor the late civil rights attorney J.L. Chestnut attended a meeting by the City Council's administra­tive committee. Most of the 90-minute session was consum­ed by procedural matters, and that upset Chestnut's relatives.

"They make motions for ev­erything else to get things done, but for some reason, this has gone back and forth," said Vivi­an Chestnut, who asked the committee to approve proce­dures so that a vote can be made by the full City Council on re­naming the street in honor of her father. Chestnut also urged commit­tee members to put a time limit on an eventual decision. Her frustration was evident.

"I don't think any considera­tion is being given to what this is putting my family through," she said. "I'm sick of it, and it's my Daddy. I'm sick and tired of what seems to be drawn out for­ever."

J.L. Chestnut died Sept. 30 at the age of 77. Several sugges­tions have been made to perpet­uate the memory of Chestnut, who made his mark in Selma's legal community when he began practicing in the late 1950s. The initial effort by family members was to rename the courthouse for Chestnut, who represented victims and ac­cused killers during hundreds of trials. That bid was thwarted when the County Commission failed to vote in favor of renaming the courthouse. The next effort was to rename a major street in Sel­ma for Chestnut. Jeff Davis Avenue, as it is known, intersects at one point with Martin Luther King Jr. Street.

It is believed to be the only intersection of its kind in the country. The intersection is near where Chestnut and his part­ners once represented clients. Nearby is a radio station built by the law firm.

During the meeting, a family friend suggested renaming Broad Street in honor of Chest­nut, but Councilman Cecil Wil­liamson indicated later that was unlikely.

"It's a federal highway, and I don't think the government will rename it," said Williamson.

Broad Street also is U.S. 80, which courses through the downtown business district and continues on to the Mississippi state line. Before the City Council can vote on whether to rename Jeff Davis Avenue, a survey will be taken of residents and business owners along the street to see if they approve of the measure. The City Council could take up the issue in February."

OK, first things first, in my brief experience with City Government, I can tell you that motions and regular business (though frustrating) is part of a normal meeting.

Second, the family is railing about all of the trauma the City is putting them through. Let's not forget that the family's, frustration is self-inflicted. Let us also not forget that the family could have picked ANY street in Selam to honor their late father but they picked Jeff Davis Ave., which incidently intersects with Martin Luther King Blvd.

This is just one of many examples across the country in which the Civil Rights movement has reared its ugly head and revealed its true intention which is Black Supremacism.

Rather than let two cultures co-exist, these people want to literally destroy Confederate History.

According to a Selma-Times Journal poll which asks "Do you agree with Jeff Davis Ave to J.L. Chesnutt Blvd?

87% of the residents of Selma are opposed to the measure.

From the Jan. 9th, 2009 New York Times:

"A NEW NICKNAME AT OKLAHOMA Now that Oklahoma Coach Bob Stoops’s reputation as Big Game Bob has been reduced to a mocking reference, a new moniker has emerged for the Sooners: “Chokelahoma.” That was yelled by Florida fans after their team’s victory."

I was having a conversation about the (then upcoming game) last Thursday at work with som co-workers, when one suggested that if I was a TRUE "Mizzou" fan, I should be wanting Oklahoma to win because it would be better for the "Big 12" Conference".

Yeah maybe that is true, but I can't forget the arrogance of Oklahoma when they defeated Missouri earlier this year and I can't help but think: "Screw the Big 12", Oklahoma just got served and Mizzou just got avenged!
