Louisiana Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu Says Barack Obama Struggles Politically in South Because Southerners Are Racist and Sexist … Oh Yeah and that Energy Policy
Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu went there … The South is racist and sexist …
With just days ahead of the 2014 midterm elections and incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu is in a close race, she did what comes natural for Democrats when they have nothing to run on of their own, play the race and sex card. In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Mary Landrieu stated that Barack Obama has had a difficult time politically in the South because, “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves.” WHAT? In a mark of desperation, Mary Landrieu went there. How tired is this constant cry of racism and war on woman? Sorry Mary, but Obama’s struggles in the South have everything to do with his policies like his anti-energy ones and Obamacare.
This divisive stunt by Landrieu might just cost the Democrats any close election in Southern states like North Carolina, Georgia and Arkansas. The issue before the election will be whether these Democrat candidates agree with Mary Landrieu that the South is racist and sexist.
LANDRIEU: One of the main reasons is because his energy policies are really different than ours. I mean, we’re a pro-production state. We wanna drill almost anywhere. People believe that it’s an opportunity for Americans to become energy self-sufficient.
One of the reasons that the president’s so unpopular is because HE put the moratorium on off-shore drilling. remember? After Macondo. And our state was furious about that. Now he could have shut down the BP operations but he didn’t, he shut down the whole Gulf. When you shut down the whole gulf of Mexico it puts a lot of people here at risk and out of business. That’s number one.
I’ll be very very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It”s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place. So we’ve had to work a little bit harder on that, but you know, the people trust me, I believe. Really they do. Trust me to do the right thing for the state.
Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday that the issue of race is a major reason that President Barack Obama has struggled politically in Southern states.
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.
Comment in response from Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who called it “remarkably divisive.” The Gateway Pundit reminds us that Bobby Jindal is an Indian-American.
“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said in a statement. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”
NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley Says It’s a Dirty, Dark Secret: “Unintelligent, Brainwashed African-Americans” Keeping Successful Black Men Down
One thing you can always count on with NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, is for him to speak his mind no matter how controversial …
WOW … While appearing on a Philadelphia radio station, “Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis,” Charles Barkley accused “unintelligent,” “brainwashed” African-Americans of keeping successful ones down” as Barkley discussed the rumor that Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was getting criticism from his black teammates for not being, “black enough.” Barkley stated that it was the “dirty, dark secret” … ”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people.”
I guess they will be saying Sir Charles is not black enough either.
”Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”
“There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success,” he continued. “It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful…”
“We’re the only ethnic group who say, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’ It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”
The Left Has Lost the Loving Feeling … Michael Moore Slams Obama Says History Will Only Remember You Were a Black President
OUCH … Uber-Lefty Michael Moore rips Barack Obama and says, history will only remember you were a black President … So much for the Obamamessiah.
How many times can you say that you agree with Michael Moore? It has only taken Michael Moore six years what so many knew many years ago, Barack Obama is an epic failure. Moore stated during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first black president.” That’s interesting, because in many respects, that is the only reason why he was first elected. Moore also went on to call Obama a disappointment. Wow, even the Far Left has Obama buyer’s remorse. Is it possible for socialists to have buyers remorse? Of course it is, individuals like Michael Moore rail on capitalism, but it was capitalism that made him rich.
Note: If the Left abandons Barack Obama, we may see Obama’s poll numbers hit s historic, all-time presidential low into the 20′s.
“When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: He was the first black president,” Moore said during a discussion at The Hollywood Reporter’s video lounge at the Toronto Film Festival.
“OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it,” the director said. “That’s it, Mr. Obama. 100 years from now: ‘He was the first black American that got elected president.’ And that’s it. Eight years of your life and that’s what people are going to remember. Boy, I got a feeling, knowing you, that — you’d probably wish you were remembered for a few other things, a few other things you could’ve done.”
“So, it is, on that level, a big disappointment,” Moore said.
When the interviewer asked whether Moore agreed with President Obama’s 2012 assertion that he’d “saved Detroit” by bailing out General Motors and Chrysler, the filmmaker recoiled. “Detroit, at this point, would stand a better chance if they were an Iraqi or Syrian city, in terms of getting some sort of help,” he said.
Where’s Eric Holder … Mob of Black Teens Attack White Kroger Store Employees & Store Customer in the Parking Lot in Memphis, Tennessee
So where are the Civil Right frauds Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
Yup, no hate crime here, eh … “Hold on, they got a white dude,” the woman laughs. “Look at ‘em. Let me get out the way.”
A NOTE TO ERIC HOLDER, THIS IS A HATE CRIME. Over the weekend, a group of black teen punks assaulted two white Kroger employees and a store patron. UNREAL … SO WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE FROM BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER OF THE HATE CRIME THAT OCCURRED THIS WEEKEND IN MEMPHIS, TN? Watch the below VIDEO as the individual taking the footage is laughing and amused that a “one dude” is getting the snot kicked out of him by a group of black teens. Oh that’s right, hate crimes can only happen in Ferguson, MO. As reported at WREG, the three people were attacked by the large group of teens around 9:15 p.m. in the store parking lot at Highland and Poplar. According to police, the incident started when a 25-year-old man was attacked by the group walking to his car. At that point, two Kroger employees, a 17 and 18-year-old, ran to help him. Let me help the police out here, the incident started when a 25-year-old (WHITE) man was attacked by the (BLACK TEENS) group walking to his car. At that point, two (WHITE) Kroger employees, a 17 and 18-year-old, ran to help him. The employees were repeatedly hit in the head and face and had 20 pound pumpkins thrown at their heads as they lay on the ground helpless. The two Kroger employees were beaten unconscious.
According to Memphis police, the group emerged from a restaurant in the same strip mall and immediately attacked a 25-year-old man as he left his car in the parking lot and headed for the grocery store.
Two grocery store employees ran to the man’s aide, and the black mob attacked them as well, brutally beating all three victims into unconsciousness.
Police report that the crowd of up to 20 teens were laughing and yelling “fan mob.”
The ignorant girl who was video taping the assault is heard to be saying as the employee lay motionless on the ground, “call some body”. Really? You are taping the assault with a call phone, you can’t dial 911?
“We are fully aware of last night’s incidents. It is extremely troubling to see how many young people were involved, especially on the heels of last week’s youth forum.
A lot of our citizens are working to provide safe and productive alternatives for our youth. For those that choose not to take advantage of these opportunities, we will work tirelessly to identify, locate and hold you accountable.
Last night’s events clearly demonstrates a lack of parental controls and if warranted these parents will also be held accountable.”
Investigators are working to identify the ones responsible for this crime.
If any one has any information concerning this incident is asked to contact the Tillman station at 901-636-3214 or Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers were unavailable for comment.
BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
The below average polling for Obama’s job approval is at 40.25% Approve and 54.25% Disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos – 8/30 – 9/3: 38% Approve – 56% Disapprove (-18)
Gallup – 9/2 – 9/5 : 38% Approve – 54% Disapprove (-16)
The Economist/YouGov – 8/30 – 9/1: 41% Approve - 56% Disapprove (-15)
GWU/Battleground – 8/23 – 8/28: 44% Approve - 51 Disapprove (-7)

Pew Research/USA Today Poll: African Americans Think Race Relations Have Gotten Worse Since 2009 Under Barack Obama
WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR …
Wasn’t the election of Barack Obama supposed to make everything better in the United States, including race relation? Wasn’t the election of the first black president supposed to bridge the divide between races? Well a recent Pew Research/USA Today poll says, not so much, especially among blacks. The poll shows that blacks have a 64% positive view of relations between the races, down 12 points from 76% in 2009. Hmm, I guess an Obama administration of perpetual dividing and race baiting would do that.
The new national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted August 20 -24 among 1, 501 adults, finds that overall perceptions of relations between blacks and
whites are only modestly changed from five years ago.
Currently, 69% of the public, including majorities of both whites (75%) and blacks (64%), say blacks and whites in this country get along “very well” or “pretty well.” Since
2009, the share of blacks with a positive view of relations between the races has fallen 12 points (from 76% to 64%) while remaining largely unchanged among whites (80% in 2009).

The Polling Company … 63% of Hispanics & 57% of Blacks Say the Government is not Doing Enough to Enforce U.S. Immigration Laws
HERE’S A POLL THE MSM, DEMOCRATS AND PRO-AMNESTY REPUBLICANS WILL NEVER SHOW YOU …
CNS News reports the following TPC/WC poll that shows that an overwhelming majority, including Hispanics and Blacks, say that the government is not doing enough to enforce current US immigration policy. But the MSM, Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans would have you believe that “amnesty” is the only way to deal with illegals already in the country. The poll also went on to say that 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” It would appear that legal Hispanics and blacks in America both agree that American jobs should be given to legal Americans. Hmm, think Hispanics and blacks realize that their already poor unemployment numbers and salaries are drastically affected by illegals?
Fully 63% of Hispanics and 57% of Blacks say the government is not doing enough to enforce U.S. immigration laws, according to the survey by The Polling Company, Inc. Likewise, 78% of Whites and 74% of all respondents want tighter border security.
What’s more, 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” About three-quarters of Whites (77%) and all respondents (74%) agree that the government has a duty to protect Americans from job competition by illegal aliens.
More than three times as many Hispanics and Blacks agree as disagree that “Americans who need work ought to have the opportunity to do the jobs that are currently done by illegal aliens”:
- Hispanics: 73% Agree, 21% Disagree
- Blacks: 70% Agree, 22% Disagree
- Whites: 83% Agree, 12% Disagree
- Total: 81% Agree, 14% Disagree
The youth labor force participation rate was highest for whites, at 63.2 percent in
July 2014. By contrast, the rate was 52.9 percent for blacks, 45.8 percent for Asians,
and 56.2 percent for Hispanics. For all four groups, labor force participation rates
were little different from last July.
The employment-population ratios for young men (53.6 percent) and whites (55.4 percent)
were higher in July 2014 than a year earlier. The ratios for young women (50.1 percent),
blacks (39.8 percent), Asians (40.8 percent), and Hispanics (47.0 percent) showed little
change from last July.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for adult women increased to 5.7 percent and the rate for blacks edged up to 11.4 percent in July, following declines for both groups in the prior
month. The rates for adult men (5.7 percent), teenagers (20.2 percent), whites (5.3 percent), and Hispanics (7.8 percent) showed little or no change in July. The jobless rate for Asians was 4.5 percent(not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
Bill O’Reilly Blasts the MSM Coverage of Ferguson, MO News Coverage of the Michael Brown Shooting (VIDEO) … Calls Out Looting Thugs, Charlatan Al Sharpton and Liberal Media
O’REILLY SLAMS THE FERGUSON, MO OPPORTUNISTS …
Bill O’Reilly returned from vacation to put forth the below ‘Talking Point Memo,’ maybe one of his best in a long, long time. O’Reilly discussed the situation in Ferguson, Missouri since the death of Michael Brown on August 9 and blasted the liberal MSM for their bias reporting and ripped the likes of Al Sharpton, calling him a charlatan.
Al Sharpton has the nerve to insult the American police community, men and women risking their lives to protect us. This charlatan has the gall to do that and NBC News is paying him. My god! Why is that acceptable?”
Something Al Sharpton will never give him because Sharpton only cares about his own self-aggrandizement and if he has to stoke racial hatred to get that, that’s what Sharpton will do. I know this man. His record defines him. Yet, he has succeeded in bringing his brand of racial grievance to the White House.
[T]o the race hustlers, Officer Wilson is already guilty. They have convicted him. There slogan is no justice, no peace. I guess that’s lynch mob justice because if those people will never accept anything other than a conviction of murder in this case. They don’t really care what happened. They want Officer Wilson punished and he should be punished if he murdered Michael Brown.
Many of the others are trouble makers who just streamed into town, but the liberal media will never report that. Nor will they report the true picture of criminal justice in the U.S.A.
Al Sharpton Makes Matters Worse in Ferguson, MO … Calls Shooting a “Defining Moment” and then Incites the Crowd Against the Police
AL SHARPTON MAKING MATTERS WORSE IN FERGUSON, MO …
Peaceful protest? Can it really be called a peaceful protest when its intent is to fire up the division between blacks and the police? Al Sharpton spoke during a rally at Greater Grace Church, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014, and did what Sharton does best … fan the flames of racism and division. Sharpton said that the police chief had the audacity to release a tape trying to disparage Michael Brown’s name by releasing a tape of Brown robbing a convenience store earlier the same say he was shot and killed by police officer, Darren Wilson. Some how it is okay to paint police officer Wilson and the entire Ferguson police as racists, but to put forth a video of the so-called “Gentle Giant” strong-armed robbing a store is evil. In Al’s world, race-baiting good, facts bad.
Sad, this is hardly the way to calm Ferguson.
Rev. Al Sharpton, left, speaks with parents of Michael Brown, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, right, during a rally at Greater Grace Church, Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014, for their son who was killed by police last Saturday in Ferguson, Mo. Sharpton told the rally Brown’s death was a “defining moment for this country.”
The situation in Ferguson, Missouri escalated Sunday night as police moved in on protesters hours before a state-imposed curfew was set to go into effect.
Police fired tear gas at protesters as some ran through the streets with their hands up, CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported.
Video has also surfaced of protesters throwing items at police, Schneider reported.
The chaos comes on the same day Rev. Al Sharpton lead a peaceful rally in the town.
Addressing a congregation in Ferguson on Sunday, Rev. Sharpton blasted the release by police of a video purportedly showing Michael Brown robbing a store shortly before the unarmed man was shot and killed by a police officer.
The remarks came one day after another standoff between police and protesters.
Here is the VIDEO of suspect Michael Brown strong-arm robbing a convenience store in Ferguson, MO of cigars that Sharpton was complaining about. Disparage Michael Brown’s name? It would appear that Brown is doing a good job of that himself. Who just walks into a store and out with anything they damn well please without paying? Of course this does not mean that it is a justification for police to shoot Brown, but it does give some factual perspective as to what Brown was all about.
Ferguson, MO Chaos: Protesters Refused to comply with Gov. Nixon’s Midnight Curfew … 7 Arrested, One Individual Critically Shot, Police Use Tear Gas Against Mob
Curfew, what curfew?
Earlier in the day on Saturday, Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) had issued a state of emergency and called for a curfew (VIDEO) in Ferguson, MO after looting and rioting continued, following the announcement of the naming of the police officer, Darren Wilson, who shot and killed Michael Brown. However, predictably there was an element that was not going to abide by the curfew and defy authority.
“This is not to silence the people of Ferguson, but to address those who are drowning out the voice of the people with their actions,” Mr. Nixon, a Democrat, told reporters and residents at a Ferguson church. “We will not allow a handful of looters to endanger the rest of this community. If we’re going to achieve justice, we must first have and maintain peace.”
Mr. Nixon added: “This is a test. The eyes of the world are watching.”
As 12 midnight came and went, some protesters disbursed; however, many staying in defiance of the 12 midnight to 5 am curfew. The result was more chaos, clashes with police (VIDEO), tear gas and arrests. As Right Wing News opined, Rioters Go Crazy In Ferguson Yet Again.
“No Justice! No Curfew!… We grown!”
Police Warn Protesters that they are violating a State imposed curfew
Man Shot (not by police) As Protesters Defy Curfew in Ferguson
VIDEO – AP
The mayhem in Ferguson Mo. Escalated early Sunday morning as a man was shot and seven people were arrested following a confrontation between police and protesters who refused to abide by the state mandated curfew.
Authorities have not identified the man but said he was critically wounded by a gunshot. It is unclear who shot him but he was injured near an area of the town where protesters had gathered near a restaurant and some people were standing on the roof. Authorities said it did not appear he was shot by an officer.
Officers from Missouri State Highway Patrol, St. Louis city and county police worked to remove the people from the area and brought armored vehicles and tear gas. A man with a handgun as spotted in the crowd and another person was reported shooting at a police car.
“I was disappointed in the actions of tonight” said patrol Capt. Ron Johnson.
Police had earlier pledged they would not use such tactics but Johnson said they were worried about officers’ safety.
“Tonight’s response was a proper one,” he said, adding that he was “disappointed” that rioting continued.
