Senator Landrieu, See You Next Tuesday!

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.’

Cupid Stunt:

1. You supported The Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Act of 2009.

2. You voted for and still support the deeply-unpopular Obamacare (‘If I had to vote for the bill again, I would vote for it tomorrow.’) and even slammed your own country by saying: ‘It’s embarrassing to me to go to places like France and Spain … and their workers all manage to have health insurance that can’t be taken away.’

Have you checked out what is going on with the French and Spanish health programmes lately?

3. You support gun control.

4. You support illegal immigration (‘dumb fence’).

5. You supported Dudd-Frankenstein.

6. You supported Cash-for-Clunkers.

7. You supported Cash-for-Caulkers.

8. You supported Obama/Hillary/Susan/Samantha’s Most Excellent Libyan Adventure thereby creating ‘Somalia on the Mediterranean.’

9. You voted for and still support the radical, race-hustlers, Eric Holder and Thomas Perez.

10. You voted to make Harry Reid the Senate Majority Leader, not once, but twice, even though he HATES the oil and gas industry. Your PAC even gave him money during his 2010 re-election.

11. You voted, over the objections of Louisiana voters, to put Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court.

12. You have voted, repeatedly, to raise the debt ceiling…under Obama, ‘natch.

13. You have stood by as Obama and his administration has constantly flouted and broken the law. In fact, you’ve defended it because ‘We can’t wait!’  Damn the Constitution!

14. Even though you claim to be ‘pro-life’, you have a career 24.5% voting record with the National Right to Life Committee and have voted with Democrats against pro-life legislation 99% since 2008, your last reelection. You support taxpayer-funded abortion, which is overwhelmingly disapproved of in your state, which, incidentally, is 90% Christian, including 30% Roman Catholic and an equal or larger evangelical population.

‘Sen. Landrieu believes that life is precious and a gift from God, but that every birth involves at least two lives: the life of the unborn child and the life of the mother. The government should not be involved in forcing decisions that are very personal and essentially family — and private — matters,' Landrieu spokesman Matthew Lehner said in a statement.

I guess all life is precious and a gift from God, but some life is more precious and a greater gift from God than others.

15. You don’t even live in the state and certainly fail to pay property taxes in New Orleans, which is where your parents’ live and you so-called ‘official’ address, which deprives the overwhelmingly black public school system of much-needed financial support.

16. Recently, when told, correctly, in a debate that Social Security benefits would have to be dramatically cut in 15 years unless the programme underwent a massive overhaul and restructuring, you said that you would never raise the retirement age (even though Americans are living longer than they were when the programme started) and ‘save’ Social Security by raising taxes on millionaires and businesses. Of course, raising taxes on millionaires and businesses would reduce the number of employees paying taxes into the system, but the unemployed can always be used to plant ‘Money Tree’ seeds.

Then, you played the race card by claiming that your opponent, Cassidy, would vote to deny poor black people in Madison Parish, who only have a life expectancy of 70, the very chance to retire or something. I guess the black people of Madison Parish will have to retire on substantially smaller Social Security cheques in 15 years, when the cost of living will, inevitably, be much higher, because that’s showing them some love or something.

17. Since your election to the Senate in 1996, black unemployment has doubled and the poverty rate has skyrocketed. What have you done for them lately?

18. If you win, it will only be because of your brother’s ‘GOTV’ efforts (~wink, ~wink) in New Orleans.

19. You are ignorant (‘South Dakota shares a border with Canada’).

20. When not embarrassing them, you constantly insult the voters of Louisiana.

21. The voters of Louisiana, who elected a minority as their governor, not once, but twice, love being called racists by a white liberal, who lives in a $2.5 million manse in Washington.

22. The voters of Louisiana, who have thrice elected you as Senator, are so sexist, why did they elect Kathleen Babineaux Blanco of Hurricane Katrina infamy as their Governor in 2003?

23. You twice voted to elect the man with the most liberal voting record in the Senate as President of the United States.

Those of just a few of the answers to your question, ‘Why wouldn’t Louisianans support me?’

They have nothing to do with the President’s skin colour or your uterus.

‘To win, Landrieu would need a rollicking black turnout, 95 percent of the vote—as she always got—and a little more than 30 percent of the white vote. Polls have her falling short of that, but if the black vote became just a little less monolithic, she’d have no path to victory whatsoever.’

‘If we convert 10 percent of the black vote, I will drink champagne that night.’

- Senator Elbert Guillory, Elbert Guillory Knows the Math in Louisiana, 23 October 2014

Senator Landrieu, you once said:

‘If they (voters) do not like it, they can unelect us (Obama Democrats). Believe me, they will have a great chance because I am up for reelection right now.’

Here’s hoping that they do just that!

‘Mary Landrieu first ran for Senate promising to be a champion for black people. While you scrounge together food stamps to buy Kool-Aid, she sips champagne at cocktail parties. Let’s send her back home to her father’s house, or to her mansion in D.C., or to wherever the heck she lives.’

- Senate Elbert Gillory

Since 1979, the 'racists and sexists' of Louisiana have elected her to office every single time save one: when she was defeated by Mike Foster in 1995 in the gubernatorial election.  The following year, the 'racist and sexist' voters of Louisiana elected Mary Landrieu to the first of her, so far and hopefully only, three terms of office.

See You Next Tuesday, Senator!


‘You’re with the conservative side: the side that opposed all civil rights legislation’

- urban elitist on October 31, 2014 at 10:54 AM

Who knew that LBJ, JFK and RFK were ‘conservatives’?

‘This civil rights program about which you have heard so much is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I fought it in the Congress. It is the province of the state to run its own elections. I am opposed to the anti-lynching bill because the Federal Government has no business enacting a law against one kind of murder than another…(And) if a man can tell you who you must hire, he can tell you who not to employ. I have met this head on.’

Senator Lyndon Baines Johnson, Austin, Texas, 22 May 1948

‘[T]here was a lot of feeling that the Negroes didn’t know exactly what they wanted and that they were not very well led.’

- Robert F Kennedy, in an interview with Anthony Lewis, 4 December 1964

Please note that the leader to whom RFK referred was none other than Martin Luther King.

Here’s some more you might like:

We weren’t thinking of the Negroes in Mississippi or Alabama – what should be done for them. We were thinking of what needed to be done in Massachusetts.’

- Robert F Kennedy, 4 December 1964

I didn’t lose much sleep about Negroes. I didn’t think about them much.’

– Robert Kennedy, A Memoir

Now, riddle me these, Yoda:

Why did President Kennedy fire Harris Wofford as his Special Assistant for Civil Rights and chairman of the Subcabinet Group on Civil Rights in 1962?

Why did the Progressive, forward thinking, champion of civil rights in liberal New England, John F Kennedy, vote against the Civil Rights Act of 1957 of President Eisenhower, a Republican?

Basically, 'Selfless' Nurse Kaci Wilson Is 'An Utterly Selfish' Cupid Stunt, 'Chris Christie Is 100% Correct', And President Obama Is A 'Dithering Prevaricator', Says...

I loathe Christie Creme, but he got some praise today and you may see pigs flying by your window holding signs that say, ‘Repent! The end is nigh!’ when you find out from whom:

It’s not hard to take sides in the Battle of Ebola Quarantine.

In the blue corner, weighing in at over 300 pounds, is big, nasty bullyboy Governor from New Jersey, Chris Chriiiisssstttiieeee.

In the red corner, weighing in at less than 150 pounds, is kind, caring, gentle, heroine nurse Kaci Hickox. At this point the fight would be stopped, right?

Kaci Hickox has made herself a media sensation trying to fight against her bola quarantine. 

But Christie is the real hero, doing what any sane person would have when presented with a nurse with Hickox’s background who had a fever upon landing from America.

Christie is not a man who engenders much empathy these days.

Since Bridge-gate, when his vile staffers closed America’s busiest bridge to damage a political opponent, he’s seen his Presidential aspirations burn up faster than an Ebola fever.

But I’ve always liked his brash, tough-talking, no-nonsense style and on the issue of Ebola quarantine, Christie is 100% right.

Nurse Hickox, I keep being assured, is one of the most selfless human beings on Planet Earth. On the podium of public opinion right now she’d probably give Mother Teresa a run as Greatest Nurse in History.


Let’s consider some hard facts. She has just returned from Sierra Leone, one of the most Ebola-ravaged countries in the world. More than 4,000 people have contracted the virus there so far, of whom 1,341 have died. It is estimated 5 people an HOUR are currently being infected and that rate is doubling every 20 days.

On October 19, the World Health Organisation reported there had been 129 cases of health workers in Sierra Leone infected with Ebola, of whom 95 had died – an appalling 73% fatality rate.

Nurse Hickox, working for the wonderful Doctors Without Borders, spent the last few weeks directly treating Ebola patients, immersing herself at the sharpest, most infectious end of the very epicentre of this dreadful disease.

When she flew back to America on Friday, Nurse Hickox explained to screeners at Newark Liberty airport where she had been and what she had been doing. Understandably, they took her away for further questioning and she had her temperature taken. It showed a fever of 101 degrees.

Now, imagine you’re Chris Christie – Governor of the State where an American nurse has just presented with a fever after treating Ebola patients in West Africa.

A few days previously, there was a huge national outcry after another American medic, New York doctor Craig Spencer, ignored instructions to self-quarantine after also flying in from West Africa – and went around the city on the subway, using Uber cabs, eating in restaurants and bowling. 

The day after he did all this, blissfully content in the self-diagnosed knowledge that he was ‘asymptomatic’ and therefore ‘not contagious’ – Dr Spencer woke up with a fever and tested positive for Ebola.

(It’s now emerged that he lied to officials, insisting he had stayed inside his home since arriving back in America. Detectives only discovered the truth when they checked his credit card statement.)

Chris Christie did what any sane, rational person would surely do in his position: he immediately ordered Nurse Hickox to be placed in quarantine while further examinations were carried out.

The conditions she was kept in were not exactly Four Seasons quality, granted. But nor were there anywhere near as bad as the horrific working environment she had endured in in Sierra Leone.

Nurse Hickox was tested several times for Ebola and the results were negative. Her fever stopped and after 65 hours in quarantine she was allowed to go home to Maine.

She’s been asked to stay inside that home for the full recommended 21 day quarantine, but she is refusing.

Dr Craig Spencer was also astonishingly selfish, running around New York City, after returning from his heroic work.

Instead, Nurse Hickox has lawyered up, and hit the airwaves. She’s become a media superstar, a Joan of Arc heroine courageously battling the outrageous treatment of a cold-hearted political barbarian.

Nurse Hickox wants us to know she’s ‘outraged’, ‘demeaned’, ‘insulted’, ‘violated’ and ‘horrified’ by what’s happened to her.  It’s a ‘shocking breach’ of her human rights and an ‘assault’ on her Constitutional freedoms.

As her boyfriend Ted Wilbur put it, Governor Christie ‘messed with the wrong redhead!’

I predict a book, a TV mini-series – perhaps even a movie, with Jennifer Lawrence playing The Ebola Angel.

My own view is that Nurse Hickox, like Dr Spencer, is an exceptionally brave person whose work in West Africa has been quite astonishingly selfless.

In that sense, she is absolutely a heroine.

But as we saw with Dr Spencer, her behaviour since she returned to America has been equally astonishing – in its reckless selfishness.

If I were running this Ebola fight in America – and I am just as qualified to do so as the newly-appointed Ebola Czar – I wouldn’t trust America’s medics to ‘self-quarantine’ because as we have seen, they will either refuse to comply or lie about it. I would make a 21-day quarantine mandatory for every single doctor and nurse who returns from treating Ebola patients in Africa.

No excuses, no exceptions, no succumbing to political point-scoring pressure.

Chris Christie’s instincts about this are spot on. He’s been bold and decisive as President Obama has dithered and prevaricated.

An Ebola epidemic would devastate America. Why on earth would anyone charged with trying to prevent it happening take any risk, however small that risk may be?

Nurse Hickox should stop her pathetic squealing, fire her lawyer, get off TV, thank her lucky stars she’s not got Ebola, and stay inside her damn home for the next couple of weeks to ensure there’s not a tiny scintilla of chance she could infect a fellow American. 

This advice is not in any medical journal. It’s called ‘common sense’.
