South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal vent their frustration over the Governor’s meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House on Monday.

At a South Carolina campaign event for former Governor Mitt Romney, Senator John McCain [accidentally?] referred to Romney as “President Obama” before being corrected by Romney and Governor Haley corrected him. I don’t see a future for McCain doing too many more of these events..
I’ve probably known thousands, maybe tens of thousands of Black Americans over the years. Some are my family, some are friends, many I’ve shared a community with, and some I’ve served. I have never met one Black person who doesn’t have some form of identification, be it a birth certificate, driver’s licence or state non-driver i.d. Even my 80 year old aunt who was born without a birth certificate has a license! In fact, my aunt doesn’t even truly know her real birthday. She isn’t even sure if her name actually is what we call her or just a distortion of her birth name due to the Black Michagander dialect…but she drives, has a bank account and uses Medicare – all things she needs her licence to access.
Recently the Justice Department blocked South Carolina’s latest voter registration law requiring voters to present a valid state i.d. before being allowed to vote at the polls. Governor Nikki Haley says the law is needed in order to prevent voter fraud and secure safe and fair elections, but critics claim voter i.d. laws disenfranchise minorities, particularly Black people. In a letter to South Carolina officials Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said, “The absolute number of minority citizens whose exercise of the franchise could be adversely affected by the proposed requirements runs into the tens of thousands,” Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said in a letter to South Carolina officials.” Really? Tens of thousands of South Carolina residents have no form of i.d.? In 2012? This is nothing more than a political ploy to continue to allow the Democrat party to steal elections through voter fraud. It makes no real sense, no matter how many big words Mr. Perez uses to describe the law.
To add insult to injury, the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People has decided to take their objections to the United Nations and request that they send an official observer to monitor elections. That’s right, the NAACP wants the United Nation to monitor our elections! “It’s been more than a century since we’ve seen such a tidal wave of assaults on the right to vote. Historically, when voting rights are attacked, it’s done to facilitate attacks on other rights. It is no mistake that the groups who are behind this are simultaneously attacking very basic women’s rights, environmental protections, labor rights, and educational access for working people and minorities. Voting rights attacks are the flip side of buying a democracy. First you buy all the leaders you can, and then you suppress as many votes as possible of the people who might object.”, says NAACP President Ben Jealous.
Black people are getting tired of being treated like ignorant, uneducated babies who haven’t the ability or will to care for themselves or function properly in modern society. The idea that somehow there are scores of Black people wandering around this country with no identification whatsoever is patently ridiculous. It is literally impossible to live an even semi-modern American life without some form of official i.d. Am I to believe that there are thousands of Black citizens right now who have never cashed a check, opened a bank account, applied for government assistance, purchased alcohol or tobacco or firearms, bought cold medicine or picked up a prescription, registered for school, rented a car, applied for a credit card, flown on an airplane, or…you get the idea. If identification is needed to buy cough syrup for your baby than why in the hell wouldn’t it be required to engage in the most important privilege we have as American citizens? Is it racism that requires you to have proper identification when buying beer? Why isn’t Ben Jealous asking the UN to monitor liquor sales in America? I’ll tell you why: because Jealous knows that his party depends on an easily defrauded system to win elections. Dead votes, repeat votes, illegal alien votes – these are the voting base of the Democrat party. Jealous knows damn well Black people have i.d.’s these days. I would bet my savings account that he doesn’t know anyone over 18 without one. This is Democrat trickery and minority victimization at its worst.
On the eve of the South Carolina GOP primary this month Black conservatives, led by Anita MonCrief (among others) will converge on the state with their photo i.d.’s to protest this gross injustice perpetrated by the DOJ and NAACP. All are welcome, but the hope is that the administration and their media minions will be forced to see that not all Black people are willing to go along with just anything that the DOJ slaps the term “social justice” on. We understand that leaving elections open to fraud hurts all Americans…and last time I checked Black people in this country counted as Americans. Using our race to perpetrate a gross violation of law and common sense is simply unacceptable. Governor Haley and other South Carolina officials have vowed to fight the DOJ’s intrusion to the highest level, but it is up to the rest of us to make our voices heard and to help restore reason and sanity to our voting process. If you have the ability, join MonCrief and company in South Carolina later this month. If you aren’t able to make the trip, blog, post or talk about it as much as you can.
If you have no birth certificate or photo i.d. of some type than you probably aren’t a citizen, which means you definitely should not be voting. Jealous, the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People and this current regime know that. They don’t care about justice. They only care about votes. what they don’t care about is where those votes come from…and that is most certainly more un-American than any voter i.d. law.
How desperate are Mitt Romney and the establishment GOP to capture a win in the upcoming GOP South Carolina primary, to be held on Jan 21st? Consider the following: SC Governor Nikki Haley recently came out with what has to be a GOP establishment talking points memo that is being parroted word for word on NewsMax here and the Associated Press/Yahoo here, and that contains the following info-bytes:
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is predicting that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will win her state’s pivotal Southern primary. Haley says she believes that Romney’s Mormon religion will not be a liability in South Carolina.(emphasis added)
First of all let’s not forget that is was not the GOP who propelled Haley into the SC Governor’s slot, as much as it was mainly due to massive grassroots Tea Party support. This is what people mean when they say do not change when you are elected, and start drinking the progressive kool-aid of the establishment GOP that gave us the failure of Mr. John McCain against a fluffed up, no-accomplishment junior senator from Chicago, also known as the corruption capitol of America politics. This is exactly how we ended up with the career community organizer and non-achiever, Barack Hussein Obama as our President.
Next up in the establishment GOP parroted statement where Haley says Romney will win the SC primary is this tidbit: “Evangelical voters are a potent force in GOP politics in South Carolina, and some believe that Mormons falsely claim to be Christians.” Add to that fact that this poll currently shows Newt Gingrich with a 14.5 point lead over Romney, and that number is the RCP average across the spectrum of polling data. Denial of reality there, or is it just plain, progressive propaganda designed to “nudge” the SC voter’s perceptions? You decide. While mulling over the facts written here, here is one last bit of information that is sure to enlighten the masses.
Joining Romney for a campaign appearance Thursday were Haley and the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2008, Sen. John McCain. Oh what a tangled web we weave……
A Machinists union voted to approve a new contract that promises a cease-fire against their employer – Boeing.
The Machinists District Lodge 751 approved a contract with 74% of the voting members. The agreement gives one of the most generous pension packages in the industry to all employees including brand new hires. In exchange, the union promises to cease hostilities against the manufacturer for four years, pull their complaints from the NLRB, allow Boeing to build their 737 in Kansas and the 787 in South Carolina.
The union recently filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that put Boeing’s new South Carolina facility in question. South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has said the union actions threatened thousands of jobs in a struggling economy.
The complaints alleged that Boeing was building the factory in a right-to-work state to avoid more strikes like those of 2005 and 2008, the latter which is attributed to the delay of the 787 Dreamliner at significant expense to Boeing and its reputation.
The union agreed to pull its complaints from the NLRB now that it has gotten the contract that was perhaps the goal of the conflict. Unfortunately, the board is an independent agency that is almost completely populated by President Obama’s appointees. While the union pulling their complaint does not guarantee that the board will follow suit, the union got the agreement it wanted while giving up little more than promising not to strike until 2016. It is likely that the unions will work with the Obama administration to get the board to drop the evaluation. This would show Boeing that the union has significant sway within the government and would rid Obama of a very negative campaign issue that would likely have run right up to the election.
Boeing has had little choice but to come out with positive statements about the agreement. Boeing needs the NLRB mess to disappear so it can get on with production of their Dreamliner at the factory in South Carolina, the 737 in Kansas and no more work stoppages from the union – at least not from Machinists Lodge 751.

As we see in the above video, courtesy of FoxNews.com, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has sent DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano a letter demanding that the state’s employers have access to the federal E-Verify system so they may comply with the law that requires them to check the legal status of perspective employees before hiring them. So far, Ms. Napolitano refuses to reply to that letter and numerous phone calls to explain why DHS is refusing South Carolina employers access to the E-Verify system so they may comply with the law regrading the hiring of illegal aliens in South Carolina. What is very troubling here is the fact that the Obama administration, and Janet Napolitano to be specific, are constantly bragging about their crackdown on any employers caught hiring illegals, yet here we see them denying South Carolina employers access to E-Verify. For those of you who may not fully understand what the E-Verify system is, you may read up on it here.
It is against federal, and now South Carolina State law to hire illegal aliens in America, so why is the Obama administration blocking access to E-verify? Employers caught hiring illegals have been fined huge amounts of money by the federal government in their supposed crackdown on the hiring of illegals, yet they are now denying South Carolina the ability to verify that perspective employees are legally eligible to work in America before hiring them! Just who does Janet Napolitano think she is here in refusing to answer Gov. Haley’s letter? The taxpayers of this country paid huge amounts of money to create the E-Verify system in 1997, and now we can not use it? Where is Congress on this issue? How about S. C. Senator Jim DeMint calling for an investigation and/or the removal of Janet Napolitano from DHS, since she is blocking the the use of E-Verify, therefore in violation of federal laws that prohibit the hiring of illegals in America? How about House Speaker John Boehner growing a spine and demanding that DHS be investigated here? This is supposedly what we pay you people for up there in D.C., to protect the citizens of this country from exactly this kind of abuse of public office, yet not one of you is doing anything about it!
This kind of blatant example of government abuse against the people of America is the reason the people no longer have faith in the federal government. The President of the United States and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security are in direct violation of federal law and the people of this country had better wake up to facts like these explained right here. Congress must call for the removal of Janet Napolitano immediately, and the people must be heard in the 2012 presidential elections in the form of removing Barack Hussein Obama from their White House!
