How about a Black Self-Responsibility Caucus?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, September 1, 2011

There is increasing evidence that the far left is becoming ever more panicked by the thought of tea-party motivated Republicans taking control of the executive branch and both houses of Congress in 2012.  That would be just four years after the nation celebrated the anointment of the Manger Baby from the mean streets of Chicago.

It all seemed so other-worldly and leg-tingling at the time — warmup performances by Stevie Wonder and Sheryl Crow, followed by the historic teleprompter speech, and all framed by those unforgettable Styrofoam Greek columns befitting the ascendancy of the Son of Saul.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the Obamessiah’s quest to calm the oceans and heal the planet.  Like in a science-fiction thriller, he morphed from Kenyan Manger Baby into the King of Cons before our very eyes.  Admittedly, it took at least fifteen minutes after he was sworn into office for many Americans to realize they had been bamboozled.

Now, the jig is up, as fickle Americans are deserting the King of Cons in droves.  Basically, he is now clinging to the life preserver (or is it a death preserver?) thrown to him by the far left — communists, socialists, progressives, union nastys, and big-business types who share in the benefits of the scam (e.g., Jeffrey Immelt), as well as a variety of other political maggots.

Fortified by an army of clueless but angry useful idiots, lefties who are petrified by the thought of losing power have pulled out their never-fail Marxist playbooks and revved up the smearing, the lying, the hate mongering, and the blaming in a desperate effort to ward off an election holocaust in 2012.

The latest example of the left’s panic-stricken rhetoric came at a Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami last week, when an obscure congressman from Indiana by the name of Andre Carson angrily shouted, “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens.  Some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”

Jason Tomcsi, a Carson spokesman, later issued a statement to The Washington Post in which he said that the congressman’s remarks were in response to his constituents’ frustration over “Congress’ inability to bolster the economy.”

Tomcsi continued by saying, “The tea party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities.  We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning [my emphasis].”

Good for Mr. Tomcsi, because the issues he alluded to are precisely what the next election is all about.  We’re at the tipping point, and people must decide if they believe it is really the government’s job (i.e., as designated by the Constitution) to provide “critical services” to protect anyone’s “livelihood.”  They must decide if they believe it is really the government’s job to provide child nutrition, job creation, job training, and “housing assistance” to anyone.  They must decide if they believe it is really Congress’ job to “bolster the economy.”

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you’re still mesmerized by the purple Styrofoam columns that brought us the great people destroyer disguised as the great planet healer.  But if you’ve had your fill of the arrogant demands of political charlatans who prey on the ignorance and avarice of their uninformed constituents, you’ll punch out the chads for just about anyone who opposes the far-left welfare state.

And if the chads are with us, the much tougher job will be finding a way to hold the feet of newly elected “conservatives” to the fire and demand that they get serious about making real budget cuts and getting rid of sacred cow agencies administered by overpaid meddlers who don’t give a damn about voters, because voters didn’t put them into office and voters can’t remove them from office.

Be prepared to help ratchet up the tea-party voice and let so-called conservative politicians know that you don’t want them providing “critical services” to anyone, don’t want them protecting anyone’s “livelihood,” and, above all, don’t want them “bolstering (as in, destroying) the economy.”

In short:  Just protect our God-given rights, and we’ll do the rest, thank you.  We’ll know this country is moving in the right direction when the Black Caucus is disbanded and replaced by a Black Self-Responsibility Caucus led by men like Allen West and Tim Scott.  Right now, unfortunately, that’s just a nice dream.

    Mr. Ringer is correct: The welfare machine is running at full speed, fueled in large part by The Fiat Fed. And let's not forget that the largest recipient of the redistribution-of-wealth machine's free goodies is a group of treasonous elites I call Banksters & Company .

    Gerald Celente, Bob Chapman, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Peter Schiff, Lew Rockwell, Gary North, Max Keiser along with many others have already exposed Banksters & Company and their trillion dollar frauds. All of the above men were exposing the treason and the traitors long before that hypocritical and traitor-in-disguise Rick Perry uttered a word about treason.

    Alex Jones, who had another great interviewed with Ron Paul yesterday, has documented over 100 trillion dollars of Banksters & Company treason/fraud. If you include the fiat derivatives and all the other fraudulent "exotic investment instruments" into the correlated fraud, then you have 100 Trillion x 15 worth of treason. So what is the conclusion?

    The welfare parasites that Mr. Ringer speaks of are sucking off of the producers far, far less than Banksters & Company; moreover, it's not the welfare moms who are the traitors.

    Treason, my friends, doesn't live in some welfare addicted ghetto. An ignorant, destitute grandmother caring for her homeless grandchildren is not a willful traitor because she want a welfare check. Treason and traitors live together in a most opulent abode. I've been pointing this out for years. I've shouted Treason! Treason! Treason! at the top of my lungs right inside of The Texas Capitol Building where treason also lives—-and grows.

    A word to the wise: Texas has prospered, not because of Tricky Perry and David Dewhurst, but despite them. Texas has prospered because there are people here who stand up–literally— and confront the treasonous hypocrites by getting right in thier face. Texas is where The Tea Party movement was born, and Washington is were it died. The location in Texas, just a few miles from where I now sit, is where Ron Paul lives, and this is your last chance to elect him to the office he was born for.

    Dear Mr. Paul,

    I will be watching until the last ballot putting you finally in the Whitehouse is counted. It is time, way past time, for your leadership to put this country on the right path. By election day the American electorate will wipe away the fog and welcome you to your place in history.

    RON PAUL 2012

    Great column as always:

    "communists, socialists, progressives, union nastys, and big-business types who share in the benefits of the scam (e.g., Jeffrey Immelt), as well as a variety of other political maggots."

    and the "socialist billionaires" …

    Pardon my cynicism: But "good luck on that."

    Honestly, I sometimes wonder "where" you live. I could not fill a mini-van with conservatives. If I count the Libertarians, I might fill a small school bus if I include those who think Obama has turned conservative and was hiding his right-wing-nut beliefs…..

    And I live in Texas where people still think they can shoot unwelcome "guests."

    Yes, I am sure 40-50% of the population will vote against the O for one reason or another. But I would guess 40-50% would vote for a More Left-wing candidate: and telling me on the ground in real-life and real-time that such candidate is a "fiscal conservative."

    And that does not count the illegal vote and voter fraud. But for the bad economy, Texas would be as purple as Barney already.

    I suggest prayer, cause from where I am, we are going to need a miracle. (And that didn't work real well for Sodom btw.)

    So… I hope we turn the corner, but I am not holding my breath.

    • Reality Seeker says:

      "And I live in Texas where people still think they can shoot unwelcome 'guests.'"

      Native Texans, as a whole, don't "think" they can, they know they can.

      You're right to be sceptical about the forces of liberty prevailing over the forces of tyranny; however, change almost never starts with a majority (e.g. one man and twelve of his disciples made a lasting impact, remember?). 2-5% of the total population can change the course of history.

      "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." ……..Mark Twain.

      When tyranny was nailing people to the cross, few Romans wanted to be a Christan, yet look what happened in the end.

      Remember The Wig Party? —and what happened to them?

      Remember what happened to the Banksters when they had to face one man, Andrew Jackson? One man, Andrew Jackson, single-handedly ended deficit spending, balanced the budget, paid off the national debt, put America on the gold standard and "killed the bank." And say what you will about Jackson's faults, but nobody questioned his manhood. He was a man who didn't "think" he could shoot, he did shoot.

      Conclusion: Remain sceptical, but don't underestimate the possibility of dramatic change— even at the hand of one man.

        pareto principle is 80:20. modified pareto is 80:20:20. ~ 4%.

        one with courage makes a majority – or mayhaps catalyze one…but always, the "majority" delineates, perhaps along pareto fault lines…4% — 16% — 80%…gulf stream — tides — water molecules?

        • Reality Seeker says:

          Your preaching to the choir, and the point is noted and very well taken.

          My point was to illustrate that dramatic change, for better or worse, does happen—so don't be caught off guard.

          Anybody who makes the claim that Republicans, Democrats and, more specifically, Rick Perry are invincible is a history denier. Rick Perry, who is going to be billed as The NeoRonald Reagan, can be beat; however, he probably won't be. Just watch how Tricky Perry operates during the upcoming Republican debates which are going to be held at The Reagan Library.

          • Reality Seeker says:

            Correction: The *debate which is going to be held at the The Reagan Library*

          • reunion says:

            logically, correctly, truthfully, then, the reagan mythology should be dissected; then neo would mean, "meet the new boss – same as the old boss". trouble is, logic & truth do not sway auld lang syne believers (such as they tend to be, very short memories/contexts & all that).

            if there is a contest at all then, it is for the intellectual remnant that will stand against the hordes AFTER implosion, or, more precisely, against the "strongman" the hordes rally behind…the pass is past, so too is any possibility of "heading it off @ the ______"). it's brain / loin girding time.

  5. blastedout says:

    You miss the point. They were deliberately installed as attack dogs to nag for the Communist ,entitlement agenda–a role in which they're revered by the networks.Conyers, who organized the group(founded it) had 2 parents who were in the Communist party w/ David Horowitz' parents

  6. Stephan F. says:

    You’ve hit the bull’s-eye dead center Robert — like it or not, we’re in a sort of civil-political “war”, and were in it up to our necks.

    The bourgeois are again finding themselves involved in that eternal struggle between freedom & liberty, and (Obama’s version of) good old fashion tyranny. We are so close to falling into the black hole of perpetual statism that the election of 2012 will probably decide, one way or the other, whether we permanently reside there or reverse course towards laissez-faire capitalism.

    To paraphrase Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, “Our culture is based on freedom and self-determination”. If we lose this war you can expect this final response from the statists: “Freedom is irrelevant. Self-determination is irrelevant. You must comply”. Welcome to the Borg collective.

  7. Whoa: "The Jig is up." Good luck with glossing over that one. lol.

  8. I propose a "Billion Man March" to restore America to its foundational "roots." lol.

  9. Bill B. says:

    Does the esteemed congressman from Indiana realize that the people hanging black americans "hanging on a tree" were Democrats?

    Remember, the late senator Robert Byrd, D-WVa was a klansman.

  10. Scott says:

    The family and the "church" abdicated its responsibilies long ago and the federal government was more than pleased to fill the vacuum. Unless we return to traditional family values and that pioneer spirit which gave us wings, we will not see meaningful change in this country. The invested central federal power will not let go easily. So, unless we repent (repent means to change one's mind, to make a 180 degree turn, not to feel sorry or badly about one's behavior) nature will probably take its course and many, many will suffer needlessly as the laws of economics exacts the cost it always does.

  11. Iris D. Lynch says:

    Forget the marches, time for target practice. This is not going to go down easily and we will need to protect ourselves. The flash mobs are merely 'practice runs' for the real thing. Be afraid.

  12. Iris D. Lynch says:

    WHY? Because when they run out of 'psychological' power (brain-washing), the only thing left is 'physical' power.

  13. Lawrence says:

    First the family and the church threw out the bible and then abdicated their resposibilities to bring up a child in the way he should go. Then they turned their children over to the satanic government to destroy the last 4 generations and make them slaves of the state.

  14. Progressive Libertar says:

    Oh please. Obama is governing as what used to be called a moderate Republican. And corporate sponsored Tax Eavading Anarchists are not helping the economy. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, TEA parties aren't the solution, TEA parties are the problem.

    • reunion says:

      progressive libertarian….your handle is an oxymoron (same vain vein as 'libertarian paternalism'), and your post a refrain. atonal noise that nets to the sound of silence…..

  15. Reality Seeker says:

    "if there is a contest at all then, it is for the intellectual remnant that will stand against the hordes AFTER implosion, or, more precisely, against the 'strongman' the hordes rally behind…the pass is past, so too is any possibility of 'heading it off @ the ______'). it’s brain / loin girding time."

    Reunion: I concur with your above assessment, and I think your prediction is the most likely outcome. I've always believed that there would be a final showdown…. In the words of John Wayne before girding his loins with a hog-leg in the movie classic Rio Bravo, "I never figured it any other way."

    Yes, I too never figured it any other way.

    I also strongly believe that there won't be a happy ending or a happy trail left for "intellectual remnant" to ride on off into the sunset after the showdown.

  16. Kirk Reeves says:

    Mr. Ringer. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS MAN'S ABILITY TO GET REELECTED! You may believe the blinders have been lifted from the eyes of the American People. I am not so sure. First keep in mind, becaue of the bad economy most people are too busy trying to stay alive to see the man as you do. Second, THis man is the slickest, smoothest politician I ever seen. He easily is slicker than Franklin D. Roosevelt and He got reelected to four terms after making the depression worst, packing the supreme court and other constitutional abuses and the last thing to consider is Obama is a politicians's politician. He easily beat out both the Clintons politicians now known for pulling punches and dirty poitical fighting. Plus he came up from Chicago politics where dirty politics got its name.

    Except for Ron Paul, and that is Paul is as honest as Obama is dishonest, I don't see anyone beating this guy and he WILL be four more years in the white house.
