Proud, Black Confederate Woman: ‘I Feel More Welcome in the South’

1 Comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

This is a story that the lame-stream media will never cover.

Karen Cooper grew up in the North and was accustomed to the way they tend to separate the races.

Then she came to the South and she was was awestruck at the hospitality and welcoming nature of the people here, and how we were just all “together.”

She has proudly embraced the southern culture. Although she may be black, but she is proudly waving the Confederate flag and telling others out how it truly does “represent freedom” and history.

<iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/126991396″ width=”640″ height=”360″ frameborder=”0″ webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen>

NY Daily News reports:

In an interview for a documentary “Battle Flag,” Virginia resident Karen Cooper described why she joined the Virginia Flaggers, a group that defends the rebel flag against those who “worship ignorance, historical revisionism and political correctness.”

Cooper, who found the flagging group through her activism in the Tea Party, explained the Confederate flag symbolizes a movement away from big government.

“I actually think that it represents freedom,” she said in an interview for “Battle Flag,” a documentary project about the flag. “It represents a people who stood up to tyranny.”

The interview comes amid a national discussion about the flag’s meaning — and vocal calls to remove it from government buildings after a rebel flag-supporter shot and killed nine people in a historical black church.

Cooper, a New York native who later settled in Virginia, brushed off the flag’s history in slavery, explaining that oppression is not exclusive to the Confederate.

She said, “I’m not advocating slavery or think that it was right. It wasn’t and none of my friends think it was. It was just something that happened. It didn’t just happen in the South — it happened worldwide.”

Cooper also aded that she believes “slavery was a choice.” Her explanation traces back to a quote by Patrick Henry: “Give me liberty, or give me death.”

She said, “If we went back to that kind of slavery — no I couldn’t do it. Give me death.” Although both options were gruesome, she has a point.

She also made another extremely valid point. Cooper said she is for small government (as most Conservatives are because big government sucks). She said that we are still living as slaves today to the government, just under different circumstances.

“I feel I’m a slave now because the federal government does control me. I can’t smoke what I want to smoke. I can’t drink what I want to drink. If I want to put something into my body, it’s my body, not theirs,” she continued, “That’s tyranny!”

Cooper added, “I know what people think about when they see the battle flag: the KKK, racism, bringing slavery back. So I knew it would be something for people to see a black woman with the battle flag. How can it be racist if I’m out there with them?”

CNN’s Jim Acosta to Trump: ‘When You Call it Fake News, You’re Undermining Confidence in Our News Media’ [VIDEO]

1 Comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

I have news for CNN’s Jim Acosta and all of the other media types President Trump is not undermining confidence in the news media and their stories.

Danny Blather(Rather) Tommy Lockjaw(Brokaw) and their cronies have undermined confidence in their news stories years ago. 

During President Trump’s press conference, he discussed a wide range of topics, including Russia, fake news, his former national security advisor General Mike Flynn, fake news, the problem of the inner cities, jobs and unemployment, fake news, the Democrats’ stalling his cabinet appointees, and fake news. Trump was clearly in his element.

He took a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta. Ironically, Acosta had lamented the day before that the ‘fix was in,’ noting that Trump was only going to call on friendly networks.

Well, that wasn’t the case. The President called on lots of different people – even Jim Acosta, whom the President said works for a ‘very fake news’ organization CNN.

“Aren’t you concerned, sir, that you are undermining the people’s faith in the 1st Amendment freedom of the press, the press in this country, when you call stories you don’t like ‘fake news?’” Acosta asked the President. “Why not just say, ‘It’s a story I don’t like?’”

He added, “When you call it ‘fake news,’ you’re undermining confidence in our news media. Isn’t that important?”

First of all, Trump didn’t invent the term ‘fake news.’ The news media did – or at least, they’re responsible for its popularity. And they used it to undermine confidence in conservative and libertarian-leaning organizations and news media. It’s been part of an effort to eradicate anything and everything that contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss.

But it’s backfired. Trump is merely using their own words and tactics against them, and they don’t like it.

Second of all, the media undermines itself by distorting facts, over-sensationalizing stories, omitting key details, publishing reports based on totally unsubstantiated information, all for the purpose of undermining the people’s confidence in Trump. They’re doing exactly what they’re accusing Trump of doing to them.

They don’t need the President to undermine the people’s confidence in the news media. They do it to themselves. They’re pointing a finger at Trump, but they’ve got three fingers pointing back at them.

 

Valerie Jarrett: Obama Prides Himself on Never Having a Scandal and Never Embarrassing Himself [VIDEO]

Leave a comment

H/T Eagle Rising. 

Life for Valerie Jarrett has to be rough going along ignorant and delusional.

Hey Valerie how about Fast and Furious for a scandal and trying to speak without his teleprompter for  embarrassing himself? 

Valerie Jarrett is President Obama’s senior advisor. In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, she said that the President “prides himself” on the fact that he hasn’t had any scandals, and he’s never done anything to embarrass himself. Here’s how their exchange went:

FAREED ZAKARIA: He’s also played the role of head of state and president and Michelle has as first lady with a great deal of dignity. Is there a conscious effort to do that because it is the first African-American couple in the White House? Do they think in those kinds of historic terms about their role? 

VALERIE JARRETT: I think they behave in a dignified way because they’re dignified. I think part of the magic for why they’re so appealing is that they are who they are. Early on, we’d have meetings and people would say to me, well, what did he really think? And I’d say, what did he say? And they’d say what he said. I said well, he kind of is what he is and that is the same for both of them. So I think that they behave as the people who they are, what you see in public is the same thing I see in private. 

Do they feel responsibility because they’re historic figures? Yes, they do. But I don’t think that it has made them be different than who they are. The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and that he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. But that’s not because he’s being someone other than who he is. That’s because that’s who he is, that’s who they are, and I think that’s what really resonates with the American people.

<iframe src=”http://content.jwplatform.com/players/nBfZPqJ4-EAYoNgFe.html” width=”320″ height=”260″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”auto”>

Just because the media doesn’t report something as a scandal, doesn’t mean that it must not be a scandal. The media’s job for the last eight years has been to carry the water for the White House.

It won’t matter what you bring up as scandals – whether it was the IRS targeting conservative non-profit groups, or the Fast and Furious debacle, or Benghazi, the disastrous foreign policy in the Middle East, or the current fear-mongering and sanctions toward Russia – the media and political establishment will regard those as non-events. They’ll claim that conservatives tried to blow them all out of proportion, and that the truth is that nothing really happened.

Obama has been shielded by the press. Now that Trump is transitioning in, the media will be very different. They’ll be the exact opposite of what they have been during Obama’s terms. They’ll treat the Trump administration as nothing but a constant scandal and cover-up.

 

Poll: Half of Hillary’s Voters Believe Russia Tampered With the Actual Vote Tallies

1 Comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

If Russia tampered with vote totals they would have helped Hillary after all she would have continued the failed Obama foreign policies. 

In an Economist/YouGov poll conducted December 17 – 20, people were surveyed on their opinions of various theories that have floated around the media – mainstream and alternative – through the election season.

One such theory was whether Russia tampered with the vote tallies. Note that this is very different from saying that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s and John Podesta’s emails and gave them to WikiLeaks for the purpose of harming Hillary and helping Trump. It’s different from saying that Russia helped to spread “fake news” on social media. Even though those are unsubstantiated claims, they are the politically correct theories to hold.

No one in any official capacity has claimed that Russia hacked the voting machines and messed with the vote tallies to help Trump win. No one in the CIA or the FBI has even suggested that. Not even Obama has. In fact, Obama rejected that possibility outright.

But “fake news” has a way of giving viewers a false perception.

When polled, 50 percent of respondents who identified as Hillary voters actually believe that “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.” Fifty-two percent of Democrats said the same.

Bill O’Reilly Says There’s a ‘Hidden Reason’ the Left is Demanding to Ban the Electoral College [VIDEO]

1 Comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

Bill is spot on with this observation abut the left.

Bill O’Reilly expounded:

O’REILLY: After Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, the left in America is demanding that the Electoral College system, put into place in 1787, be scrapped.

But there is a hidden reason for this. As we have reported, even though Secretary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million, the progressive state of California provided that margin, Clinton defeating Trump there by about 4.3 million votes.

So, if the Electoral College were abolished, presidential candidates could simply campaign in the nation’s largest states and cities – New York, LA, Chicago, Houston – and rack up enough votes to pretty much win any election.

That’s what the left wants – because in the large urban areas and blue states like New York and California, minorities are substantial.

Look at the landscape – Philadelphia, Dallas – Fort Worth, Miami – in all of these places the minority vote usually goes heavily to the Democrats.

Add that to New York City, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco and you don’t really have a national election anymore, you have targeted populations.

Newspapers like the New York Times and the L.A. Times have editorialized to get rid of the Electoral College.

They well know that neutralizing the largely white rural areas in the Midwest and South will assure liberal politicians, get power and keep it.

Talking Points believes this is all about race. The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with.

Therefore white working-class voters must be marginalized, and what better way to do that than center the voting power in the cities?

Very few commentators will tell you that the heart of liberalism in America is based on race.

It permeates almost every issue – that white men have set up a system of oppression and that system must be destroyed.

Bernie Sanders peddled that. To some extent Hillary Clinton did. And the liberal media tries to sell that all day long.

So-called white privilege bad; diversity good.

If you look at the voting patterns, it is clear that the Democrats are heavily reliant on the minority vote.

Also on the woman vote.

White men have largely abandoned the Democrats and the left believes this is because of racism – that they want to punish minorities and keep them down.

So that’s what’s really going on when you hear about the Electoral College and how unfair it allegedly is.

Summing up, the left wants power taken away from the white establishment and they want a profound change in the way America is run.

Taking voting power away from white precincts is the quickest way to do that.

Hillary Supporters Threaten Members of Electoral College: ‘I’ll Put a Bullet in Your Fat F***ing Mouth’ if You Vote for Trump!

In a sane world these people would be hunted down and arrested.

Sadly we no longer live in a sane world. 

electoral-college-2-1024x384

If it weren’t for the Electoral College, New York City and Los Angeles would determine every national election outcome. There would be practically no point in Middle America even voting. Talk about voter suppression.

When we vote in the primary, it’s not much different. We have delegates who go to local and state conventions, and eventually the national convention to vote for the nominee.

As much as people have been trying to say our country is under a mob-rule system of government, that is not the case, and it never has been. We are a Constitutional Republic.

Or at least, that’s what was intended. Following the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin stated that they had created “a Republic…if you can keep it.”

People only want the Electoral College scrapped, because their side lost. That’s obvious.

They think they can game this “unfair” system to their benefit by convincing members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton. In fact, there’s a petition to that effect on Change.org that’s gotten nearly 4.5 million signers.

One way these Hillary Clinton fanatics are trying to “convince” electors to violate their respective state laws and break the rules by switching their votes from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton, is by threatening to kill them. I suppose that’s one way to do it. And we’ll find out next month if their strategy worked.

The Detroit News reported on one such elector from Michigan who’s bound to vote for Donald Trump. His name is Michael Banerian:

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”

The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”

“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” said Banerian, a political science senior at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”

FLASHBACK, 2008: President-Elect Obama Ditched the Press, and no One Cared

Leave a comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

Bathhouse Barry ditches the press pool as president elect not a peep is uttered.

President Elect Trump ditches the press pool and the press loses their minds.

he press pool that was following then-President-elect Barack Obama around in 2008 probably minded a little, but there was no media firestorm. The press generally loved Obama. What he and his family did wasn’t controversial or scandalous. It didn’t receive anywhere near the attention that Trump got for eating a steak dinner with his family and friends.

Media pundits are saying that this is about Trump’s desire not to be transparent.

Trump leaves press behind for steak dinner, showing lack of transparency http://nbcnews.to/2fVXcUF 

  • 443443 Retweets

  • 845845 likes

  • Now that Trump is President-elect, he has to inform the press pool of his whereabouts. As CNN reported in 2008, “their purpose is to provide a public record of the official’s activities, a vital service in a functioning democracy.”
  • I think this has less to do with a “functioning democracy” and a lot more to do with the media’s need to generate traffic, and garner viewers, listeners, and readers, so they can make a profit. They have to spin it – that is what they’re good at after all – to make it sound like their way of making money is actually a “public service.” It’s a “vital service in a functioning democracy.”

    If it’s that big of a deal that they’d criticize Trump – barely a week after his victory – why didn’t they seem to care when Obama did the same thing shortly after he became President-elect? In fact, it was in December when he ditched the press pool, and he wasn’t just out for dinner somewhere. He was on a Hawaii vacation. CNN reported at the time:

    A vacationing President-elect Barack Obama slipped away from the traveling press pool that follows him wherever he goes, taking his two young daughters, family members and friends to Hawaii’s Sea Life Park.

    Likewise, the New York Times reported around the same time:

    In the news-free zone that is Barack Obama’s preinauguration Hawaiian vacation, this passes for a bulletin: The president-elect ditched his “press pool” of media minders to take his daughters to a water park on Friday morning.

    In making his dash — with his Secret Service security detail, to be sure — Mr. Obama drew attention both to the seemingly odd but important rituals of the presidential (and prepresidential) bubble and to just how much this very private public man chafes under its constraints.

    The media is pretending to be concerned that Trump’s “sneaking” out for steak dinner is a foreshadowing of how he’ll be as President. I don’t think it tells us anything about how Trump is going to deal with the media. It tells us more about how the press is going to deal with Trump.

POLL: Americans Fear GUN CONTROL More Than Mass Shootings

Leave a comment

H/T Eagle Rising.

I hope this fear makes people go to the polls and defeat Hillary Clinton.

mass-shootings-1024x384

Remember back in the 90’s when Eric Holder said we need to “brainwash” Americans about guns?

He said that in the same way cigarette smokers were shamed for smoking tobacco products, Americans should be equally shamed about owning guns.

Holder later clarified that he was talking specifically about young black men. But that didn’t stop the establishment from trying to brainwash everyone, regardless of race or age, about firearms.

The media works hard to over-sensationalize mass shootings and the murderers themselves – particularly if they’re white – for the purpose of increased ratings. But it also has the effect of making people afraid to the point of paranoia about guns. Politicians take that fear and paranoia and channel it into political action.

So far, however, it hasn’t translated enough into the kind of action they want. They want tighter and tighter restrictions on firearms. They want semi-automatic rifles outlawed. They want to ban what they call “high-capacity” magazines – those that can hold more than ten rounds.

Once those are outlawed, they’ll move on to handguns. Don’t believe them when they say they don’t care about handguns. They most certainly do. These are the same people who look to the U.K. and Australia as shining examples of how to deal with “gun violence.”

But after all those efforts to brainwash and instill fear for the purpose of control, it doesn’t seem as if they’ve done a sufficient job. People are always more ready for gun control in the immediate wake of a mass shooting or terrorist attack involving a gun. But that quickly fades. Their efforts appear to have had the opposite effect on the populace.

In a recent survey by Chapman University, people were asked about their fears. Want to know their top fear? Mass shootings, right? Nope. Sixty percent of respondents said their number one fear is “corrupt government officials.” Not far down the list at number five was gun control. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they feared “government restrictions on firearms and ammunition” more than anything else.

So how about mass shootings? They don’t even make it into the top ten. They’re all the way down the list at number 30. 

People fear reptiles and high medical bills more than they do mass shootings. They’re more afraid of tornados and water pollution than they are of mass shootings. Here’s their full list:

Future Hall of Fame Linebacker, Ray Lewis, Blasts #BlackLivesMatter for Ignoring Black on Black Crime!

Leave a comment

This is from Eagle Rising.  

How long before Ray Lewis gets taken to the woodshed? Then Ray will say his words were twisted around.

Wow.

Future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis recently made some major waves after releasing a short video on his Facebook page. The video, which some 3.1 million people have now seen, came straight from Lewis’ heart and it was directed at America’s African-American community. In it, Lewis destroyed the #BlackLivesMatter movement for their unjust depiction of racism in America and for their complete blindness to “black on black crime.”

Lewis decried the fact that the movement pushed black people to feel victimized by white America but for ignoring the fact that “every day we have black-on-black crime killing each other.”

“Why do we always find ourselves the victims, and now we have the separation once again that we’re being victimized because of one bad white cop, two bad white cops, three bad white cops, killing a young black brother. But every day we have black-on-black crime, killing each other? The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we’re not rioting in the streets over black on black killing each other,” a visibly agitated Lewis argued.

Lewis continued by wondering if the Black Lives Matter movement actually cared about black lives at all.

“I’m trying to figure out if black lives really matter. In Chicago alone the murder rate has soared 72 percent in 2016 — 88 percent in the first three months of 2016 compared to the last year.  I’m trying to ask the question to an organization of black lives, if they really mattered, then why not riot now?” Lewis said quoting black on black crime statistics.

“Brother, if nobody will scream to you, I will scream to you. I know black lives matter because I’m a black man, but stop killing each other. Man, we have to put these guns down in Chicago. Baltimore, Miami, man it ain’t that hard. You have to be okay with earning a living. It ain’t supposed to be easy. If we don’t change what we’re doing not only will our kids not have a future, but we might find ourselves extinct,”Lewis concluded.

Lewis’ argument is buttressed by facts, statistics, and anecdotal evidence, but that hasn’t stopped liberals from attacking him for offering an “uninformed” opinion on the issue. It seems as though anyone who disagrees with the liberal orthodoxy on any issue is “uninformed,” but we think that Ray Lewis is on to something here. I hope he keeps speaking out on this issue because it is of great importance.

 

Muslim in Detroit on Why He Targeted a Christian Church for Attack: ‘It’s Easy… People are Not Allowed to Carry Guns in Church’!

2 Comments

This is from Eagle Rising.

It would pay this follower of The Pedophile Mohammed to try any crap where I attend church.

Many of us, including our pastor pack heat we have many retired military in our congregation.

A Muslim man from Detroit, Michigan finds himself in quite a legal pickle after becoming radicalized and converting into a disciple of ISIS.

Khalil Abu-Rayyan was arrested this past October on gun and drug charges, but authorities have recently accused him of terrorism as well. While he has not officially been charged yet, the government believes that Abu-Rayyan has been working towards carrying out an ISIS inspired attack on the United States. The FBI has been monitoring Abu-Rayyan since May of 2015, and they’ve watched as he has made threats against the nation and interacted with ISIS propaganda online.

The authorities released the details of their accusations in a sworn affidavit.

While on social media he told an undercover agent that he ‘tried to shoot up a church one day. I don’t know the name of it but it’s close to my job.

‘One of the biggest ones in Detroit. I had it planned out. I brought a bunch of bullets. I practiced a lot with it. 

‘I practiced reloading and unloading, but my dad searched my car one day and he found everything. He found the gun and the bullets and the mask I was going to wear.’

Khalil-Abu-Rayyan

He never shared which church he planned on allegedly attacking, however, investigators did identify a possible target less than a half mile away from where he worked, WJBK reported. 

When investigators asked Abu-Rayyan why he allegedly wanted to target a church, he said: ‘It’s easy, and a lot of people go there, plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. 

‘Plus it would make the news. Everybody would have heard. Honestly, I regret not doing it. If I can’t go do jihad at the Middle East I would do a jihad over here.’

Abu-Rayyan had been preparing for quite some time and had even purchased an Ak-47 because he’d seen pictures of ISIS terrorists carrying them. He also kept a sword in his car because he had a fantasy of beheading someone, “It is my dream to behead someone,” he told investigators. The Muslim Michigander even spoke of killing the police officer who originally arrested him after hearing that the cop had had a heart attack and was in the hospital. Abu-Rayyan said that he wanted to do a “martyrdom operation” and attack the hospital in an effort to kill the recovering police officer.

Thankfully the authorities have ferreted out this terrorist sympathizer, and he’ll now face hard times for the crimes he was planning. However, it should serve as a warning to every American that this is the insidious enemy that we are fighting. The authorities have no idea when or how Abu-Rayyan became radicalized; indeed, he’s mostly just an inept pot-head with delusions of grandeur. And yet… he had the chance (and almost got away with it) to wreak incredible havoc in his Detroit community. This should be a wake up call for us all.
