The Guardian Fund has endorsed freshman Congressman Tom Cotton of Arkansas in his bid for U.S. Senate against Mark Pryor, an entrenched Democrat. Tom is a rising star in the Republican Party and without a doubt one of the brightest spots in American politics today.
The Left knows they’re in grave danger of losing control in the Senate if they can’t defend this seat, so they’re already gunning for Tom. More than a year before Election Day, the Democrat establishment is running ads smearing Tom’s record in Congress with lies and trying desperately to destroy his character. These attacks are false and we need to fight back on Tom’s behalf right now.
The Guardian Fund is building up an arsenal to defeat the left’s attacks against Tom and all of our endorsed candidates and our goal is to raise $250,000 online between now and the end of the year. Your donation today of $25, $50, $100, or more will play a key role in our success.
An Army combat veteran who led troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Tom Cotton is a man of principle who knows what it means to lead. To say America needs Tom- and more like him — in the United States Senate to do battle with Harry Reid is an understatement.
That’s precisely why the liberal fundraising machine is already funneling money into Arkansas to destroy Tom on the airwaves. Trust me—they’re ready and willing to invest millions in this race. Tom is going to need the help of conservatives nationwide to come out on top.
What an incredible inaugural week for allenbwest.com. It was certainly better than that for healthcare.gov, and we want to thank you all for sharing your time with us. We’ll continue to provide you with concise assessments of critical issues affecting our economy, sports and culture, national security, and foreign policy.
This week we’ve seen reversals from Democrats on the individual mandate of Obamacare, which unfairly taxes Americans. That could be the good news.
There were some interesting “this day in history” anniversaries such as the first parachute jump in 1797, the tragic loss of 250 Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers at the hands of Iran in Beirut in 1983, and the birth of the United Nations in 1945.
We were unfortunately reminded that the Democrat party is still comfortable with the despicable imagery and symbology of the Ku Klux Klan, courtesy of Florida Rep. Alan Grayson. Speaking of Florida, 300,000 Floridians became the latest victims of Obamacare when Florida Blue dropped their health insurance coverage. And we still see an unemployment situation which becomes more dire with each passing month. We can only restore this Republic by educating the citizenry. That is our goal, because the uninformed may turn us all into subjects.
Steadfast and Loyal

I woke up this morning sure I would see a statement from the first African-American President condemning Florida Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson for his use of a burning cross and Klansmen in a fundraising email.
After all, the liberal progressive left and President Obama have made such an issue about the Washington Redskins mascot and the offensive nature of that symbol, wrongly so of course.
I just knew that Obama, so beloved by the black community would make a serious stand against the use of a symbol that represented voter intimidation and lynchings of blacks. I felt that President Obama, the champion of civility in political discourse, would schedule a press event today, or maybe even call TEA Party leaders, such as he did with Sandra Fluke and Jason Collins, to offer an apology and support. Then I woke up from the dream I was having.
Look people, Jim Crow was a serious thing. So was cross burning, lynching , and so is the very real topic of racism. I know that there are political battles to be won, and that seems more important than anything, however, as a Tea Party supporter, as a person who believes in the Lord, as a woman, and as a proud Black woman of many cultures, —— I am also VERY educated….. so I take deep offense to these flame throwing fools and their quest to win. The Democrat Party, is the greatest “user” of the minds of people who view themselves to be powerless —- namely the Black underclass.
The great marketers that these Democrats have ruthlessly shackled the legs of Black men who fall for this drivel with stories of victimhood. Black men, unable to find meaningful work, REALLY enslaved by unemployment and poverty, robbed of their birthright of maleness, of feeling that they are the MEN in their households. They have ruthlessly shackled the legs of Black women, who feel unattractive except for what exists between their legs or the hair they can buy for their heads, or the nails they glue on ,then paint…… all the while neglecting school and their children — the ones they choose not to abort. This is the real Black underclass and ain’t none of them were ever slaves. This is the average citizen of the districts of the elderly hysterical Black Caucus. These are reliable Obama voters. Betrayed.
How did they do this? By making them into perpetual victims. Victims of “DA Man”. By telling them that speaking good English and going to school is “acting white”. By celebrating “rap” in its nastiest, homophobic, misogynistic flatulence and then joking in “black-speak” to their friends…. By lowering standards at school, as though they (Blacks) — just can’t learn…..They target groups such as the Tea Party and liken bad images such as cross burnings , Jim Crow and lynchings, re-writing history along the way because they have no shame— Soon it will be anyone who stand in their way.
Sure, the Republican Party is not perfect…….. What in life is. They are older, whiter so forth than the general population but don’t kid yourself……. I have heard the “n” word more in the so called “liberal” arena than I have around Republican. Better to tell me you hate me than tell me you love me while showing me that you hate me.
Because at the end of the day, whether you are Black, White, Hispanic or Asian, or other………… You all did not get the memo. This ain’t about YOU, this is politics at its most vulgar. And what is the goal? Why winning of course —- a ONE party government. Don’t feel betrayed, however, Republicans when you find they are members of our own party as well.
But a one party government,….. then everyone can find out what a goose feels like when it is cooked. By the way, the image above are white men.
Yesterday Democrats on House Oversight committee walked out on the parents of murdered Benghazi Americans Ty Woods and Sean Smith. This is consistent with Obama and Hillary walking out and abandoning their sons. For the liberal progressives who control the Democrat party it’s more important to protect current POTUS and the one they want to be POTUS. Such a despicable and disrespectful act reflects upon who the Democrats are and sadly upon those in the media who support them and those who vote for them. Shameful.
The proverbial political cat is out of the bag for the Democratic Party, as emails obtained by our friends over at the Washington Free Beacon expose egregious gerrymandering of Florida’s congressional districts between Congresswoman Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee, Democratic consultants, and the Florida Democratic Party during the 2012 redistricting process.
The Shark Tank broke the story that Congressman Allen West was going to be “screwed” during redistricting, because of a deal the Republican controlled Florida Legislature had struck with Democrats. While Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin pounced on the redistricting “fix” that was taking place against Allen West, the GOP establishment moved quickly to cover its own hind, as several high-ranking legislators directly pointed the finger at two legislators as being the responsible parties of the controversy, former Senate President Mike Haridopolos and current Senate President Don Gaetz.(Rush Limbaugh discussed Shark Tank story of Allen West)
The legislators in question told the Shark Tank that Haridopolos personally asked to let the state Senate redistrict West’s congressional district. Again, desperate politicians looking to save their careers will say anything to stay out of hot water, perhaps even lie about Haridopolos’ direct involvement.
The Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of gaining political support or winning elections in the Southern section of the country by appealing to racism against African Americans.
Just what was the Southern Strategy?
It was not developed by the Nixon team but was attributed to Nixon’s political strategist Kevin Phillips. Phillips stated in an interview in a 1970 New York Times article:
“From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need any more than that…but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That’s where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.”
This was the strategy that helped to win the Southern states for the Republican Party during the 1968 and 1972 elections.
Although political scientists have argued that the change in the southern voting patterns from Democrat to Republican had more to do with economic interests than with race, the change was in place. By the way white working class voters in the south still continued to vote for Democrats for national office until the 1990s, so the jury is still out about the true success of the Southern Strategy as regards to race.
By the way, in 1976, Jimmy Carter won most of the Southern states without offending northern Democrats, explaining, “I have no trouble pitching for Wallace votes and black votes at the same time.” Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
Democratic charges of racism have been made about Republican campaigns for the House of Representatives and Senate in the South. The Willie Horton commercials used by supporters of George H. W. Bush against Michael Dukakis in the election of 1988 were considered by many Democrats, including Jesse Jackson, Lloyd Bentsen, and many newspaper editors, to be racist.
In 1990 re-election campaign of Jesse Helms attacked his opponent’s alleged support of “racial quotas,” with an ad where a white person’s hands are seen crumpling a letter indicating that he was denied a job because of the color of his skin.
Harvey LeRoy “Lee” Atwater (February 27, 1951 – March 29, 1991) was an American political consultant and strategist to the Republican Party. He was an advisor of U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush and chairman of the Republican National Committee.
A man of many contradictions, Atwater played guitar in a rock band called the Upsetter Revue in Columbia South Carolina. At the height of his political power he played with B.B. King, and released an album called “Red, Hot, and Blue” featuring among others, the great Isaac Hayes. He was also a husband and father to three children.
All of this being said Atwater possessed An acumen for aggressive tactics. For example, as the campaign consultant to Republican incumbent Floyd Spence in his race for Congress against Tom Turnipseed , a Democrat, Atwater’s tactics included doctored push polls, fake surveys and statements that Turnipseed was not only a member of the NAACP but that he “got hooked up to jumper cables”. Atwater discovered Turnipseed underwent shock therapy as a teenager for depression.
The following is the infamous interview that Atwater gave on the “Southern Strategy”
ATWATER: You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”
Although Atwater was not directly responsible for the Willie Horton Ads, the campaign benefited from it. Atwater’s skills in the 1988 election led one biographer to call him “the best campaign manager who ever lived.”
After the election, Atwater was named chairman of the Republican National Committee. The scope of Atwater’s abilities are far beyond the scope of this page, however, there is one very notable achievement:
In 1989, Atwater became a new member of the historically black Howard University Board of Trustees. The university gained national attention when students rose up in protest against Atwater’s appointment. Student activists disrupted Howard’s 122nd anniversary celebrations and eventually occupied the university’s administration building. Within days, both Atwater and Howard President James E. Cheek resigned.
Atwater collapsed in March of 1990 at a political fundraiser for Phil Gramm. He was diagnosed with brain cancer. He underwent very drastic treatments which left him swollen and unable to move without a wheelchair. In his last written piece, he stated the following:
“My illness helped me to see that what was missing in society is what was missing in me: a little heart, a lot of brotherhood.”
President Barack Obama received 95% of the African American vote. But even before this, at least 88% of the African American vote.
The large majority of African Americans support the Democratic Party. In the 2004 Presidential Election, Democrat John Kerry received 88% of the African American vote compared to 11% for Republican George W. Bush. Although there is an African-American lobby in foreign policy, it has not had the impact that African American organizations have had in domestic policy.
The African American trend of voting for Democrats can be traced back to the 1930s during the Great Depression, when Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal program provided economic relief to African Americans; Roosevelt’s New Deal coalition turned the Democratic Party into an organization of the working class and their liberal allies, regardless of region. The African American vote became even more solidly Democratic when Democratic presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson pushed for civil rights legislation during the 1960s. This along with the efforts by Truman, Eisenhower and others solidified this block.
THIS IS PART OF A TWO PART DISCUSSION TAKING PLACE HERE:
It seems some writer at the NY Times is at it again, calling the GOP in disarray and racist. Perhaps this gent needs a little history lesson. The Democrat party gave America slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism. Jim Crow laws, poll tax, literacy tests, and providing women checks for having children out of wedlock are further examples of Democrat policies. President Lincoln broke the chains of physical bondage. President Reagan broke the chains of economic bondage. The writer thinks the GOP is in disarray, but it’s thanks to liberal progressive policies emanating from the Obama administration that America is in disarray. The demise of our economic, energy, and national security are evident and the State of our Union is horrific. I would much rather be a member of a political party that rewards my individual industrialism, than one which promotes my individual subjugation.
The Democratic Party opposed President Lincoln and just about every other civil rights advance in the United States. So what gives the Democrats and Hollywood liberals the right to claim Abraham Lincoln as their president? Hear what AlfonZo Rachel thinks.
