Many "black politicians are cretin" and need to be called out!

It's time for afrospear political bloggers to step in the gap, and start calling these "cretin" low-life black politicians out. Start reporting on these politicians who could care less about the politicial and economic empowerment of black folks.

Yes, I said it, many of these black cretin politicians are half wit, imbeciles and idiots ... this past week is a case study in why so many black politicians are idiots, and why so many people, particularly black folks are so angry with black politicians and the practice of politics in black communities. 

Let's talk about how black politicians are idiots, and how their counterparts are just as stupid. The Washington Post has a great report on some of this black political idiots.  How about once highly respected Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), one of the longest-serving and most powerful members of Congress, who was forced to give up the chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee (a leave of absence, he caMany black politicians are cretin and need to be called outlled it).  As WaPo reports, he was caught in a swirl of allegations involving unpaid taxes and accepting company-underwritten trips, Rangel finally stepped aside to avoid a potentially embarrassing vote against him by his colleagues. His case is far from over.

Oh, and let's not forget New York Gov. David Paterson (D) fought to hang on to his office amid rising indignation and calls for his resignation over reports that he intervened in a domestic abuse allegation lodged against one of his highest-ranking aides



How about that Republican leader who has another embarrassment of his own, as reported by WaPo, there was a controversial Republican National Committee fundraising presentation that was first surfaced by Politico's Ben Smith. The PowerPoint presentation included a slide with the title "The Evil Empire." 
The slide depicted President Obama as the Joker (with a caption that read, "socialism"), 

Steele: What would Scooby-Doo?












Speaking of cretin black politicans in the U.S. how about Monica Conyers, wife of Congressman John Conyers.

Monica Conyers   (File photo by WILLIAM ARCHIE/Detroit Free Press)

According to The Detriot Free Press, Federal prosecutors have recommended that former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers receive at least 46-57 months in prison for her role in the Synagro sludge-hauling scandal. get this, Conyers, who also sat on a city pension board, is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge Avern Cohn. She faces up to five years in prison as part of her guilty plea. Voters may be ready for real change in Washington....


But she is not the only black politician disgarcing black folks recently. How about Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford (D-AL) who as arrested on December 1, 2008 by the FBI on a 101 count indictment alleging conspiracy, bribery, fraud, money laundering, and filing false tax returns in connection with a long-running bribery scheme.


 



Her former chief of staff, Sam Riddle, went to trial last month in connection with the Synagro allegations and other alleged bribery and extortion schemes. During the trial, which ended in a hung jury, prosecutors played many intercepted phone calls of conversations between Conyers and Riddle and Conyers and Detroit businessman Rayford Jackson, who is serving five years in prison. Conyers cast the tiebreaking vote on city council for a $1.2-billion contract with Synagro in November 2007. Read more HERE



Larry Langford 100305.jpg

Former Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday for his role in a bribery scheme during his tenure as president of the Jefferson County Commission.

U.S. District Judge Scott Coogler issued the sentence Friday morning in a federal courtroom in Tuscaloosa, telling Langford, "This isn't pleasant for me or you."

Langford declined to make a statement before the sentencing, but did tell the judge, "I'm sorry this has occurred." The judge sentenced Langford to 180 months in prison, plus three years supervised release afterwards.  Langford must also pay restitution and back taxes.

Prosecutors then asked the judge to send Langford to prison immediately instead of giving him 30 days to report to prison because, "Langford showed no remorse." Judge Coogler decided against that recommendation and gave Langford 30 days to report to prison (April 5th.)  However, in the interim, Langford will be required to wear an electronic monitoring anklet, must report to his probation officer twice a week, and cannot go outside of Jefferson County. Federal prosecutors had asked Judge Coogler to sentence Langford to between 24 and 30 years in prison. Langford's attorney, Michael Rasmussen, objected Friday morning, restating the opinions he filed Thursday and asking the judge for mercy.  "Let Langford come out before he's 70 and overcome by health problems," Rasmussen said. "Don't let him rot in prison."   More HERE

Let's not forget about Baltimore Mayor Shelia Dixon (D-MD) was indicted on 12 counts of perjury, theft and misconduct in office (January 2009)

Not to be out-done, remember Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D-MI) with his Chief-of-Staff  Christine Beatty, fired two police officers for investigating claims that Kilpatrick had used his security unit to cover up their extramarital affair and lied about it under oath. Both pled guilty and were sentenced to 4 months in prison with 5 years probation. (2008)

Or how about in my home state of Massachusetts, former State Senator Diane Wilkerson (D-MA) who was video taped by the FBI stuffing bribe money into her bra. Also charged with tax evasion (1997), ethics violations (2001) and perjury (2005). She resigned the Senate in November 2008, but still faces charges.


Or how about Georgia Congressman David Scott (D-GA) who has expended $52,000 to $344,000 to himself, friends, family and business from campaigns every election cycle since 2002. Shortly after the 2006 election, he was served with an IRS tax lien for over $153,000.

Yes, It's time for black political bloggers and blogtalkradio host to start calling these "cretin" low-life black politicians out.  

Now that we learn that everyone is getting paid with taxpayer money except black folks, maybe it's time to call a number of black politicans out. 

But that's just my opinion what do you think?

Three Negros (stooges) Meet With Obama at White House


http://xtrvaluedvds.com/images/The-Three-Stooges-3.jpeg



Two of the of the three "black like me, 'light skinned Obama type negro' men of negro opinion and somewhat negro dialect" met privately with Obama for about an hour saying they pushed for aid in urban and rural areas with large numbers of hurting "minorities." Media outlets like CNN, continue to build these folks up, as Black spokes people, saying "Wednesday as President Obama huddled with key African-American leaders at the White House."  Who elected these three self serving negro clowns black leaders?






These 3 Top negro hustlers of the civil rights memories of days long gone, included Rev. Al Sharpton of the National Action Network (a paper tiger organization based out of NY) and National Urban League president Marc Morial, and thier new side kick NACCP chief negro in charge Benjamin Todd Jealous, spoke with members of a media that was non exsistent outside the West Wing of the White House following their meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington.



Al Sharpton and the other two stooges went to the White House to talk about the pain of black folks, in order to gain favor from the Obama administration for their pet projects. This after the negro NAACP organization called the NAACP just finished giving a letter A of support to America's Senate bigot.


Sharpton and the other stooges met with President Obama, urging him to remember their communities when it comes to the pending jobs bill and other pieces of economic legislation."We expect to be included in the process," Sharpton said, just as business and union leaders are. Obama's other negro guests: Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, and Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League made up the three stooges.



Dorothy Height, chairwoman of the National Council of Negro Women, had to cancel because of the weather.


AAPP says: There appears to be something drastically wrong with the Obama administration refusing to address poverty and the black community. Maybe Doug Wilder is right. i have been saying it for some time myself, The White House of "not listening to the people" I also urge Barack Obama to fire his senior aides. It seems that his staff only see red.






The president needs to address low-income workers who have been hit the hardest by the jobs crisis, instead of addressing America's affluent. the President needs to talk with real people, and not these fake three stooges he met with today. Maybe he can get it on his schedule.






Hey Mr. president, This is not the change I voted for. At this point, this independent,   would never vote for you again.



Want to talk about this issue and these three stooges, and what they are up to?  Is this just a disguise to get some money for their organizations? Are they just really planning to support Obama because Americans are not supporting his support the rich policies?

The Color Divide - Older Negro Leaders, and "Colored Civil Rights Groups" Support Senator Harry Reid

I just finished reading how old guard "negro orgainizations" such as the NAACP have run to the defesnse of Harry Reid.. Garance Franke-Ruta at the washington Post has a great article on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and  how he described then Senator Barack Obama in 2008. Reid who says, "I've apologized to the president. I've apologized to everyone that, within the sound of my voice -- that I could have used a better choice of words."

Now Reid says,  "And I'll continue to do my work for the African American community."

AAPP: Oh, he got the "Affrican-Amerrican" words rights this time. Hmmm.

Reid who described Obama as a "light-skinned" African American "with no Negro dialect," is gaining support from every old fart "negro" group and leader he can get to brown nose, including the NAACP chairman Julian Bond who has been the biggest negro clown in NAACP history. Speaking of clowns, as reported by the Washington Post, NAACP branches of Reno and Las Vegas also accepted Reid's public apologies, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal, saying in a statement Sunday that Reid's voting record -- which had "the highest ratings on issues of critical importance to the African-American community" -- showed his true regard for African Americans. "One need only look at Senator Reid's proven record of leadership on civil rights and social justice to know where his heart truly lies," said Lonnie L. Feemster and Frank Hawkins Jr. in the statement.

AAPP: It's interesting how these negro opinion makers and colored civil rights groups are coming out of the closet to champion Harry Reid and his "brown bag skin color politics of days that should have gone by."

Some say that Harry Reid only said what white Americans think. Many white Americans seem to believe that light skin blacks who are Harvard educated are OK "negroes" to whites, while dark skin blacks who are graduates of, let us say, HBCU's, are not OK or "safe" to whites, or for that matter Senator Reid, Barack Obama, or negroes inside the NAACP and other "colored" organizations that have failed the black community.

I'm reminded of how Senator Reid stood by the door trying to keep now Senator Roland Burris out of the United States Senate. One has to now wonder was Reid refusing to seat Burris due to the color of his skin, more than the need to have Burris testify under oath that he is unblemished by the Blagojevich stain.

With all these "negros" supporting Senator Reid, I realize more and more why black folks are in such bad shape in America. Our caricature acting steppin Fetchit negro leadership, continues to support whites of both parties who could care less about black folks.  Take for example in the new book,  "Game Change," by John Heileman and Mark Halperin, it is alleged that former president Bill Clinton told the late Sen. Ted Kennedy that "a few years ago this guy [Obama] would have been getting us coffee." Damn, is the bigotry coming out in washington, or was it always there and balck folks in leadership continue to sweep it under the rug.



So as these negroes continue to back those who support color aroused hatred towards black folks, we should all remember this on election day, and run against these color aroused,  hate mongering politicans, and their negro supports, to and bring new leadership into Washington.

Regarding the old negro leaders and thier useless negro organizations, they will die out anyway...

NEGRO: Did Harry Reid Call Pres. Obama "The Magical Negro"

Special Post: So is Harry Reid a color aroused bigot? Did he say "code words" which we would expect out of Republicans, skinheads, and birthers? Is he bringing up memories of Jim Crow and slavery? Why is he using the word ""Negro" ? Why is the word negro becoming in vogue by whites, and the Obama administration. Read more HERE 


No Harry Reid didn't say, Obama “light-skinned” and has “no Negro dialect" that's why he could be President. 

Damn, did the Senate President just call the President of the United States, a light skinned house negro, who knows how to talk with whites? Did the president of the United States, just say, "that's OK Boss." ?


Now we have a former black man, who some blacks consider the next generation  "uncle tom,"  in the name of Al Sharpton - who is now standing with Reid. I guess "The magical negro" is the operative word in 2010.


 
Damon Winter/The New York Times


The NY Times, Washington Post, Politico, Huffington PostChicago Sun Times are reporting that Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, apologized on Saturday for saying that he believed Barack Obama could become the country’s first black president because he was “light-skinned” and had the advantage of carrying “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”  More HERE

Get this, as reported by the NY Times, the apology was prompted by the release of a new book on the 2008 presidential campaign, which reported that Mr. Reid privately urged Mr. Obama to seek the presidency more than three years ago despite his limited experience and the historical obstacles to making a successful bid for the White House.



Harry Reid response: 

I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words,” Mr. Reid said in a statement. “I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African Americans for my improper comments.”

The remarks from Mr. Reid were the latest in a long-running series of statements that several political figures have made about Mr. Obama, which have underscored the uneasy evolution of race and politics in the United States. Mr. Reid telephoned Mr. Obama on Saturday to apologize.

AAPP "That apology is not accepted, not by this African American Political Pundit (AAPP). You should resign Senator Reid. What are you saying, black folks that are dark skin should not be President?  Black Folks who have dark skin should pass the harry reid "bag test?" 

And what is this word "Negro" and "Negro dialect."



Maybe GOP Leader, "Fried chicken" Steele should resign as well.



Question No. 9 on this year's census form asks about race, with one of the answers listed as "black, African-Am. or Negro."
Question No. 9 on this year's census form asks about race, with one of the answers listed as "black, African-Am. or Negro."


But, President Barack Obama has accepted Harry Reid's comments saying:


“I accepted Harry’s apology without question because I’ve known him for years, I’ve seen the passionate leadership he’s shown on issues of social justice and I know what’s in his heart,” Mr. Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “As far as I am concerned, the book is closed.”

AAPP: "Ouch! Mr. President, with all due respect,  “As far as I am concerned, the book is not closed for the African American community.” - “You have accepted Harry’s apology without question because you have known him for years." Well Mr. President, you have known a bigot for years. This man, Harry Reid needs to resign." He is part of a culture in America that should be alarming to all reasonable people in America. I urge you to watch this video and then ask the qurestion, does Mr. Reid add fuel to the fire of these bigots: 





NOTE: Harry Reid's comments about Barack Obama are contained in a passage of the book “Game Change,” by political journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, which is set to be released by Harper on Monday.

New 'Miranda Rights' against taser abuse,"

"These are new 'Miranda Rights' against taser abuse,"
says Atty. Francis L. Holland


There's been a ground-breaking decision by the 9th Circuit US Federal Court of Appeals against taser abuse, entitled Bryan v. McPherson.  This decision was announced on December 29th, between Christmas and New Years holidays but it deserves our immediate attention and dissemination via our EasyWidgets:

The decision writes into federal caselaw many of the arguments and advocacy that we afrosphere bloggers have been making at our Days (months and years) of Blogging for Justice Against Police Pre-Trial, Extra-Judicial "Taser" Shock, Electrocution and Execution devices.  The Easy-Widget HTML code below enables us to educate the public of their newly announced rights.

The 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals agreed with us that:
". . . we must “balance the amount of force applied against the need for that force.”  Bryan v. McPherson, 9th Cir. Fd. Ct. App., December 29, 2009.
This decision has direct legal effect throughout the 9th Circuit, consisting of populous California, Alaska, Washington, Montana, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Hawaii and Guam, and influential in other parts of the country.  Nearly 20% of America's population is within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit.  The Court announced what we have long insisted:
"A reasonable police officer . . . would have foreseen these physical injuries when confronting a shirtless individual standing on asphalt. We have held that force can be unreasonable even without physical blows or injuries." Bryan v. McPherson

We've got widgets up at 123 afrosphere blogs telling the public that, in many cases, when "Tasers" are used, "The price is too high". Now, lets post Easy-Widgets to inform the public that one of the most influential federal circuit courts of appeal in the country agrees with us that:

"The presence of non-minor physical injuries like those suffered by Bryan, however, is certainly relevant in evaluating the degree of the Fourth Amendment intrusion.Bryan v. McPherson

Let's celebrate! Here's a new EasyWidget that takes readers to our anti-electrocution blogs. This Easy-Widget HTML (immediately below) links to Electrocuted While Black, but there are visibly identical widgets below that lead to Tasered While Black and the Police Brutality Blog.

The result is better than that for which many of us had hoped. Instead of arguing locally for changes to voluntarily enforced police taser policy, Bryan's lawyers in this case, and bloggers making similar arguments, convinced the 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court to write these requirements and limitations into Federal caselaw, which is probably faster, better and politically safer than having the restrictions enacted into law by the US Congress. 

Afrosphere bloggers and the Ninth Circuit encourage other circuits to follow this example by observing that:
"We, along with our sister circuits, have held that tasers and stun guns fall into the category of non-lethal force.   Non-lethal, however, is not synonymous with non-excessive; all force—lethal and non-lethal—must be justified by the need for the specific level of force employed."   Bryan v. McPherson
Not everyone -- blogger or reader -- has had a chance to read the whole Bryan v. McPherson case. So, the Easy-Widget quotes the most powerful language of the decision and links to our afrosphere blogs for more information.

In Bryan v. McPherson, the 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court basically wrote into federal caselaw many of the arguments that we taser opponents have been arguing. But this is better than what many of us had sought, because instead of it being a change in local optionally enforced "guidelines," it's a change in obligatorily obeyed federal case law for the states in the 9th Circuit, and also, as the decision alludes, the 9th Circuit has enormous influence on other "sister" circuits courts.

Please join Electrocuted While Black in celebrating this decision by posting a widget that tells readers their rights and takes them to a blog where they can learn more, be it Electrocuted While Black or the Police Brutality Blog. Installation of the Easy-Widget below is a quick and easy way to quote some of the best parts of the case for your readers.

Congressional Black Caucus Members Under Investigation




The Washington Post is reporting that House ethics investigators have been scrutinizing the activities of more than 30 lawmakers and several aides in inquiries about issues including defense lobbying and corporate influence peddling, according to a confidential House ethics committee report prepared in July.

Dozens in Congress under ethics inquiry

Ellen Nakashima and Paul Kane staff writers with the Washington Post are reporting the a number of members of the Congressional Black Caucus are being investigated for defense lobbying and corporate influence peddling, according to a confidential House ethics committee report prepared in July.

The document also disclosed that ethics committee staff members have interviewed House Ways and Means Chairman Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) about one element of the complex investigation of his personal finances, as well as the lawmaker's top aide and his son.

Rangel said he spoke with ethics committee staff members regarding a conference that he and four other members of the Congressional Black Caucus attended last November in St. Martin. The trip initially was said to be sponsored by a nonprofit foundation run by a newspaper. But the three-day event, at a luxury resort, was underwritten by major corporations such as Citigroup, Pfizer and AT&T. Rules passed in 2007, shortly after Democrats reclaimed the majority following a wave of corruption cases against Republicans, bar private companies from paying for congressional travel.

According to Wapo Rangel said he has not discussed other parts of the investigation of his finances with the committee. "I'm waiting for that, anxiously," he said.

Reps. Maxine Waters and Laura Richardson are seen.

There is more.. According to Wapo, Politico, and The LA Times, the committee did not detail the two newly disclosed investigations. However, according to the July document, Rep. Maxine Waters, a high-ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, came under scrutiny because of activities involving OneUnited Bank of Massachusetts, in which her husband owns at least $250,000 in stock. Waters arranged a September 2008 meeting at the Treasury Department where OneUnited executives asked for government money. In December, Treasury selected OneUnited as an early participant in the bank bailout program, injecting $12.1 million.

AAPP: Voters in their congressional districts need to take a hard look at these Corrupt Congressional Black Caucus members. It just may be time to throw these folks out of office. I know if any of them were representing me, I would vote them out of office in a heartbeat. I guess Cathy Hughes would do the same thing. If I were Obama I would not meet with the Congressional Black Caucus until they stop standing up for crooks, get there act together and purged those who bring the group into disgrace.

I'm also getting a bit tired of these Congressional ethics inquiries, that have been dragging on for sometime despite vows to end corruption.

I guess I can understand why some democrats are worried that one of their own could cost them their jobs.

NAACP Joins Fight For Federal Taser Standards

The Publisher of Tasered While Black says: Finally the National Office of the NAACP is discussing the issue of Black folks getting Tasered While Black. We salute the fact that Ben Jealous has joined in this fight. I hope that the National office of the NAACP's new involvement is sincere, and is not just another PR effort that they have been famous for in the past.

Let's see if the NAACP will join the already established effort of the Afrospear and
Tasered While Black to gain a Congressional Taser Hearings or will they go it alone, and establish a new effort for PR purposes... Only time will tell.

Benjamin Jealous

As reported on the NAACP Website and the Afro Newspaper in Baltimore Maryland, (September 17, 2009) - The NAACP is renewing a push for federal standards on police use of force after the shooting of an unarmed Black man by two White police officers inside a church while day care children watched, the Associated Press reported.

According to witnesses, the man was surrendering but officials in Rockford, Ill., deny this description of events, saying Mark Anthony Barmore attempted to grab an officer's gun after they cornered him in the church.

However, both sides agree Barmore ran when officers approached him in the church parking lot, highlighting the suspicion and fear that can poison relationships between police and minority communities across the country.

"There are no national standards for the use of force (or) training for use of force," Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, said Sept. 11.
