Colin Powell (again)
condemns Republicans

Washington Times [DC], by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/21/2013 12:50:09 PM

Self-described Republican and former Secretary of State Colin Powell marked the second swearing-in of President Obama Monday with more harsh words for his fellow party members, during separate appearances on MSNBC and ABC. To Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” report, Mr. Powell criticized the GOP’s immigration platform, and questioned why the party has shifted so far right. “The Republican Party should be a party that says, ‘We want everybody to vote,’ and make it easier to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party,” he said, according to Politico. “The [GOP] has shifted dramatically

I´m so proud that I never bought into this RINO´s spiel. If I don´t see some record of advocacy of conservative principles of one sort or the other, I don´t buy it. Mere membership in the party or an administration are meaningless conservative credentials. Colon, [sic] if you think the Right is the problem in this country, you are a fool´s fool. Start [sic] telling the young AfAm men of America to marry their baby mamas -- at least one of them.

And, of course, no Republican can tell this affirmative action general to shut up without being called a racist. Powell is the rule, not the exception, for most of the civil rights black generation that, by any standards, have been given opportunities not on merit but, by the color of their skin. From young to old, they have nothing but resentment toward their nation and, in Powell´s case, his political party. Our chickens have come home to roost.

Colin Powell is not a Republican and has no business calling himself one. Colin Powell is an affirmative action baby who prospered in the Reagan/Bush defense build-up. I thank him for his service, but politically he is a left wing Democrat and has no business being taken seriously by anyone in terms of commenting on the state of the GOP.

Colin, you idiot. We do NOT want everyone to vote. We only want people who have a vested interest in the United States and are willing to vote for what is best for our nation and people.

Don´t need Islamic votes - they vote for what´s best for themselves or Islam most of the time. Don´t need no welfare votes - they vote for more gimmees for themselves. Don´t need no crony-business man votes - they vote themselves (thru their companies) more from government coffers. Don´t need no socialist votes - they vote socialism - every time. I could go on but... you get the idea.

I for one don´t want everyone voting. I want all adult citizens to have the right to vote but if you don´t care enough to vote unless someone bribes you with a pack of smokes, I don´t want you voting.

And let´s dispell the myth of the Republican party shifting to the right. Just once can we challenge that with a definition of what is meant by "far right" and by what metric the Republicans has moved from a point less consistent with that definition to one more so. This garbage keeps getting repreated and accepted without challenge.

Lincoln had it right. The former slaves should have been shipped out of this country. Slavery was a terrible chapter however too many could never get beyond it and both those who were never slaves nor slave owner are paying the price. Blacks in power today see every issue through the prism of black retribution. Putting people with such an axe to grind in power is dangerous as they are blinded to to most everything else.
The sins of the father are on constant display as communism creeps in to every crevice and crack of our nation. Frank Marshall Davis, Obama´s evil "mentor" must feel such satisfaction...as much as any pedophile can.

And, I did see how George Bush II, appointed you to high places. I do see your true colors now, and I now realize that you are one of those affirmative action recipients of the first order.

The left would call us racist, #12, but I agree with you. I have NEVER been a fan of Africa, African people, nor African culture. Furthermore, to make me a super-racist, sexist, and homophobe(to use the lefts favorite attacks against white conservatives) I often daydream, and wonder what my beloved America would be like without blacks, Hispanics, lefty women and homosexuals......Ever think about that? I do....especially lately, in this Arab-influenced administration of Kenyan Barry Soetoro Arabs, Muslims, avowed commies, lefty ditz women,stoopid white men like Biden and America-hating Kerry, and fat Supreme court judges...

Colin Powell should be served on a dinner plate to Chris Christie, and after dinner Christie can walk the plank and go down to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and stay there! There, thats a good start! Purge!

Powell repeats the false meme that Republicans have shifted to the Right. The reality is that Democrats have stampeded to the extreme Left, while Republicans have not changed at all. Ignorant people who are not paying attention might be partly forgiven for failing to realize where the change is actually occurring. Powell is not one of them, and his remarks are disingenuous.

There seems to be something seriously wrong and incongruent with this man´s public political pronouncements. He is not doing himself any favors by pretending to be a Republican while acting, talking and voting like a Democrat. He is not being honest.

At some time in the past Powell may have been a good general. I am unqualified to say. I am willing to take others´ opinion that he was. Yet Powell gave up all pretense of being an honest citizen or especially a Republican when he sat on his hands with knowledge of the who, what & where of the origination of the Plame Affair, while the president who entrusted him with power and position twisted slowly in the wind and his Vice-President´s Chief of Staff was prosecuted to the hilt under false pretenses after the prosecutor conspired with Powell for a solid year & a half of incredible angst, political intrigue and expense to hide their certain early knowledge almost from Day One that Richard Armitage, Powell´s head deputy and buddy at State, was the leaker they pretended was a mystery for no other reason than to cause the President political damage. But when that became wide knowledge, he was understood to me to be the perfidious toad anyone can see acting out today once again rather than the honorable man of high virtue he tries to paint himself. His actions, or inactions in this case, speak louder than the garbage he spouts as a self-proclaimed Republican.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

Democrats: The Real Party Of The Rich

Free Speech: Right after the Supreme Court´s decision to lift limits on campaign contributions, Democrats and their left-wing supporters assaulted the decision as a boon to Republicans, "the party of the rich." This of course is part of a far-wider narrative — slavishly repeated by largely unquestioning liberal media — that the GOP outspends Democrats on campaigns thanks to big-buck donors like the billionaire Koch brothers. But, as it turns out, that´s a lie — as big a lie, in fact, as "you can keep your insurance," "you can keep your doctor" and "ObamaCare will bend the cost curve down."

A package of tax breaks passed this week by the Senate Finance Committee includes one by New York Democratic Sen.

The plan passed Thursday is part of a larger bill that includes two-year tax extensions on more than 50 provisions worth $85.3 billion. The Schumer amendment would allow commuters who use Citi Bike in New York and other, similar bike-share programs to pay their memberships with pre-tax dollars, as much a $20 a month.

President Obama on Saturday continued his election-year assault on the House GOP’s latest budget proposal, telling Americans the plan would “raise taxes on middle-class families with kids” and cut crucial programs while giving more handouts to the rich. In his weekly address, Mr. Obama made his case — without explicitly saying so — why voters should elect more Democrats in this November’s midterm elections and contrasted the GOP plan with his party’s priorities. “This week, the Republicans in Congress put forward a very different budget … it shrinks opportunity and makes it harder for Americans who work hard to get

A federal proposal requiring more efficiency from wood-burning stoves has ignited a debate between the Obama administration and lawmakers who oppose the new regulations, arguing the rules impose an unfair burden on people in remote areas. The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule changes in January that would dramatically tighten emissions requirements on new wood-powered heaters, though does not impact ones already in homes. The EPA estimates that as much as 13 percent of all soot pollution in the U.S. is a result of inefficient wood-fired stoves and boilers. The dispute pits several mostly urban states, mainly in the northeast,

Top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett recently granted an interview to a celebrity-gossip website called Popsugar and revealed why she had come to Hollywood. “I´m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” The “it” is Obamacare. Conservatives are no match for liberals in this arena. The White House people know the immense cultural power the Left has in the popular culture. Liberals rightly credit TV and movies and pop songs for America’s growing support for gay “marriage.” So why not use that power for Obamacare? Jarrett told the Popsugar crew that

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in
