MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Thinks Republicans Are “Killing The Black Vote”

Chris Matthews

The liberal Chris Matthews, on his show “Hardball”, came right out and accused the Republican Party of “killing the black vote” by having voter ID laws in place, or, as he says it, making “sure that the sons and daughters of slaves have the hardest possible time getting into the voting booth.”

Voter ID laws are not restrictive to race. If anyone does not have identification, they cannot vote. This includes Whites, Asians, Latinos, Blacks, reds, oranges, purples, and greens.

But the left doesn’t see it that way.

“This is rotten stuff, isn’t it?” Matthews says. “The Republican effort to kill the black vote in state after state… We can all see what they’re doing. Believing they can’t convert the African-American vote, they’ve decided to slaughter it.”

“Early voting–shrink it down to nothing, or kill it altogether. Sunday voting–that souls to the polls thing–slam the door on it. Same-day registration–you got to be kidding. That’s like putting down welcome mats for African-American voters.”

How is having identification racist? Which brings up why identification is important. With the millions of illegals in the country (and more coming), how big of an impact would they have on an election if they were (or already are) voting without ID?

“Look, this is murder in broad daylight. One Republican after another is telling us just exactly what they’re up to,” Matthews continued. “It’s not about reform or making elections more honest. The one thing they’re actually honest about, if you catch them at it, is motive. This whole thing is aimed at killing the African-American vote.”

Having identification goes beyond just voting. Without ID, or being able to prove you are who you say you are, you can’t board a plane, get a job, or even buy certain things.

The DMV says that getting an ID requires just a few things that anyone should be able to get. Namely, proof of citizenship, social security card, proof of residency in a state, and money for the ID. All things any race can easily get if they are a legal citizen of this country.

Restricting people appointing representatives of the American people is not a racist issue; it’s legal issue.

Besides, the Obama Administration doesn’t like having to prove they are what they say they are. How many times have they failed to do what they said they would?

Mike Huckabee Has A Strong Message For Republicans

Mike Huckabee

In his opening monologue this weekend, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee told fellow Republicans to “grow a spine” when it comes to judicial activism.  Huckabee was referencing the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear petitions from five states where bans on same-sex marriage was overturned in the lower courts, including Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

On Sunday, a federal judge overturned a same-sex marriage ban in Alaska, a law that had been in place since 1998.  It had been the first law of its kind, according to CNN.

Huckabee stressed that his position on same-sex marriage is the same position President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden had until two years ago–“that it was inconsistent with nature and nature’s law.”

“I wonder sometimes, do we still teach civics in school? Are Americans, even elected officials, lawyers, and judges utterly ignorant about the structure of our government and how it functions?

“Well can I assume everyone knows that we’ve got three branches of government, and each are equal to the other? The founders took extraordinary measures to prevent too much power being grabbed by one person or group. The system they created, sometimes cumbersome; but it’s based on the longest used Constitution in human history.

“The Congress controls the purse or the money, the Executive branch controls the sword, and the Judicial branch watches over and offers opinions as to the Constitutional compliance of the other two.

“My friend Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel and Dean at the Liberty University School of Law points out in his outstanding book called Judicial Tyranny, and he says this and I quote: ‘The Bill of Rights is designed to protect the liberties of the minority against the majority. However, our constitutional makeup does not give the minority veto rights over the majority.  The major…political and social questions of our day has by constitutional design been given to the majority through the legislative process. Continually taking away the right of the majority to shape their culture will ultimately result in rebellion. To take away the right of the people to debate the question leads to an oligarchy, or government of the few, and it results in tyranny.’

“Well this week, the Supreme Court declined to take up cases from the court of appeals regarding same-sex marriage in a number of states where the people had already voted to affirm natural law marriage of a man and a woman. In these states, typically, a single robed judge decided that his opinion mattered more than the collective votes of the people themselves.

“The Supreme Court refused to hear these cases, despite the confusion that exists due to its own Windsor decision last year which struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Several governors and other elected officials reacted by saying, ‘Well, that’s it. That’s the final word.’ Horse apples. The Supreme Court is not the supreme being. Yes, it’s the highest court within one of the three branches of government, but it isn’t superior to the other two.

Democrats Keep Winning Elections Because Of This One Dirty Secret That Will Leave You Furious

obama shh

If you haven’t noticed lately, Democrats are crushing Republicans in debates. But there’s a very logical reason for this…

It’s not that Democrats are better debaters… or that they present better options for economic and social issues. Heck, they’re not even more charismatic.

The issue runs much deeper than that.

This week, I’m giving a special presentation to the Center for Sovereignty Studies on the greatest deception that goes unnoticed by most conservatives. But I want to let Wall Street Daily readers in on this wicked secret first…

Once this gets out, the Republicans will have another weapon to protect America’s values. As you’ll see, it’s practically black magic.

Abracadabra

Most Americans are under a mass hypnosis, thanks to our media. So they never really stop to think about the ideologies or forces that influence our politicians. They falsely expect these people to share their same ideas about basic values.

Even Republican politicians are guilty of having this false expectation.

In my 30 years of political warfare, I’ve come to embrace this truth – a truth highlighted in Richard M. Weaver’s book, “Ideas Have Consequences”… In America, we’re currently in the midst of a protracted war of ideas. The opposing sides just don’t have much in common anymore.

When we penetrate the deception of media, we’ll come to realize that there are really only two sides to the conflict. But it’s not the red versus blue split that you may have in mind…

On one side, we have those who believe in unchangeable right and wrong.

And on the other side, we have those who believe morality is subjective, changing, and flexible.

While one’s code of ethics remains constant, the other’s is ever-changing.

In the end, these two opposing worldviews play by entirely different rules. And this disconnect is exactly what has disadvantaged the conservatives in the media lately.

The Book of “Power Rules”

You see, the majority of the mainstream media consists of people who’ve rejected traditional values and morality, seeing them as subjective.

As the great conservative leader Senator H.L. “Bill” Richardson wrote: “Those of us [who] espouse traditional American values must understand that contemporary confrontational politics isn’t of our making. It is, however, the foundation of the tactics successfully practiced by leaders of the left. We must understand their methodology in order to combat them effectively.”

Richardson was one of the first to recognize how the ideas of Saul Alinsky have completely transformed the Democratic Party and the left of center political culture. They embraced what are known as the “power rules.”

These power rules are what allowed both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to win two terms in the White House. The Alinsky power rules have transformed American political culture and debate.

Conservatives are taught as children to obey the traditional morality of our past. This makes them totally unprepared for modern debate. They believe such outmoded concepts such as: Don’t tell lies… respect the ideas of others because they are also God’s children… do unto others what you would have them do unto you… don’t be quick to judge… and nobody likes a braggart.

This Move By The Kansas Democratic Party Could End Up Costing Them Big Time

youtube: WIBW News Now

The Kansas Republican Party is challenging the validity of a Democrat’s withdrawal from its upcoming United States Senate election.

Democrat Chad Taylor, a county prosecutor, withdrew from the Kansas Senate race Wednesday, pitting incumbent Republican Pat Roberts against independent Greg Orman–a former Democrat who has been endorsed by groups including Traditional Republicans for Common Sense and Women for Kansas.

Roberts survived a Tea Party backed challenge last month and was viewed by Democrats as vulnerable.

Kansas Republicans are calling this move a “corrupt bargain,” according to a press release from Kansas Republican Party Chairman Kelly Arnold.

“This is an attempt by Liberal Washington Democrats to disenfranchise Kansas Democrats and invalidate their primary election. You cannot throw an election in the garbage because some people find the results inconvenient.  70,000 people voted in the Democratic primary.  That cannot be undone by a corrupt closed door bargain, reeking of back room deals and secret promises.”

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said he was going to investigate the legality of Taylor’s withdrawal from the race, according to the Associated Press (AP).  When asked by the AP whether or not the withdrawal was legal Kobach said,  “Let me defer the question because I want to have a full discussion with attorneys.”

Kobach also told the AP that his understanding of election law in Kansas was that the Democratic Party must select a new candidate to replace Taylor.

The most recent poll, released last month by SurveyUSA showed Roberts at 37 percent, Taylor at 32 percent, and Orman at 20 percent.

Ouch: Even Michelle May Agree That Obama Needs To Be Impeached After What Mike Huckabee Just Said

huckabee

In a recent interview, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee weighed in on the possibility of impeaching Barack Obama. He told radio host Steve Deace that while he “absolutely” believes such a result is warranted, he does not believe a Democrat-controlled Senate would ever allow the process to gain traction.

“There’s no doubt that he’s done plenty of things worthy of impeachment,” Huckabee affirmed. “Now the fact is, we don’t have the Senate, so even if you impeached him in the House and it went to trial in the Senate, it would never even get to the floor because [Majority Leader] Harry Reid has been sitting on 357 pieces of legislation passed by the House Republicans.”

While Huckabee, often included in lists of potential GOP presidential hopefuls in the 2016 election season, took a realistic view on the issue, it is clear he wants to see Obama held accountable for his unconstitutional actions as president.

He concluded that “it’s an important argument to make that there are a number of things that this president has done in the overuse of executive power – his complete ignoring of the law.”

Specifically, Huckabee cited Obama’s convoluted response to his troubled healthcare law as evidence that he deserves to be impeached.

“This is a president who passes ObamaCare and when the Republicans want to change it, the answer is ‘It’s the law of the land,’” he said, “until it isn’t the law of the land, until he wants to give over 40 exemptions to his pals. Well, you can’t do that.”

While Huckabee recognized the appeal such unilateral power poses, he said an ethical leader must do what he knows is right.

“My gosh, when I was governor for the 10 and a half years I served, I would love to have been able to just make up the law as it suited me,” he concluded. “But I put my hand on the Bible and I swore that I would uphold the Constitution, not my … own opinions.”
