Do you know anything about Alvin Greene? He came practically from out of nowhere to win South Carolina's senatorial Democratic primary. He beat out a statewide well known Democrat politico. Mr. Greene is facing felony obscenity charges. His Republican opponent for the November general election is South Carolina's Sen. Jim DeMint; thus with a little caution, I think he will not be North Carolina's next senator.
He has not received support from the Democratic Party hierarchy. You know they have to be embarrassed by his primary victory. Some Democrats see Mr. Greene as some kind of a Republican plant. Some have been wondering where did he get the money needed just to become a candidate! Well, it has been established that he used his nest egg savings from his times in the military.
Even though I am very much aware of how blacks without much reservation support black Democratic (as oppose to Republican) candidates, I am still somewhat stunned by the support Mr. Greene is getting from some folks. Have you heard Alvin Greene in any interviews? If not, go here and/or here. Would you vote for somebody like him?
The main reason given for supporting Alvin Greene by syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, and others is that he is an everyday person who has more in common with the average voter than the usual elected official. They say his lacking in articulation is no big deal and there is a "so what" attitude about the felony charges. Some feel that even if he is guilty, what he allegedly did isn't so bad.
I know throughout my 30+ years as a Democrat, I would have never voted for a Democratic candidate such as he. Minus the felony charges, do you really won't an Alvin Greene? Personally, I want someone well above average representing me. If he were to win, the media would show Mr. Greene for the joke that he is day by day. The gaffes would abound and be the top news story. Even his Democratic colleagues would take advantage of his simpleness. The Republicans will see him as the gift that keeps on giving.
I have heard a few people say that this is an act and we will see the real and qualified Alvin Greene later. I don't believe that. He is one big joke. I hope South Carolinians are not dumb enough to vote for this man.

New Black Panther King Samir Shabazz (warning - profane rapping) and Malik Zulu Shabazz (birth name is Paris Lewis) an attorney who is the national chairman of the New Black Panther Party have been making the national news of late. Mr. K. S. Shabazz made the news for intimidating white voters at a Philly polling place on the presidential election day in November of 2008. Even though it as been reported that Mr. K. S. Shabazz was not prosecuted, he was and Attorney General, Eric Holder down graded His voter intimidation conviction sentence to not being on the premise of a polling place only through 2012.
A video of Mr. K. S. Shabazz making wild statements of killing all whites and their babies and etc has surfaced. This is beyond deplorable and you get a denouncement from me. Can anyone really defend those kind of statements? His name calling has many of my Facebook friends reacting by replacing their profile image with Saltines and Ritz crackers.
Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz has declared war on Fox News. Like his Black Panther Party with their tiny membership can do anything to destroy Fox News! He was on with Megyn Kelly today. See what he said here and here. The last link includes the name calling and the 'Killing of whites and their babies' rant of Mr. K. S. Shabazz. Do you remember M. Z. Shabazz doing a vicious verbal attack (3 minutes in) on Michelle Malkin when she use to guest host Bill O'Reilly's program? I would get worst than what Ms. Malkin got if Mr. M. Z. Shabbazz read anything on this blog. Face to face, I probably would be physically assaulted.
I have visited a blog and few social network pages managed by liberal left folks of color. These folks continue to site perceived and actual discriminatory actions against minorities. I wonder why they are silent so far on the voter intimidation issue, the name calling and the 'kill all whites and their babies' hateful spew! I am looking for them to man and woman up and call out and denounce wrong and hateful behavior of leftists of color that was spotlighted in this post on their online platforms, because they certainly call what they perceive to be wrong and hateful of people of color on the right.

A Michael Ramirez CartoonWith there being a strong left Democratic majority in Congress, whether you like it or not, Elena Kagan is our next Supreme Court Justice. Her Confirmation should ease right on through. Maye in the future, let's say after the November election, Pres. Obama may not have it so great when getting far left Supreme Court Justices and other nominees confirmed when Congress, especially the Senate may have less members from the Democratic Party. Those nominees could start going the way of Bill Clinton's Supreme Court nominee Lani Guinier.

What is it with Vice Pres Joe Biden. He desperately needs gaffe proofing. How about a zipper lock for that gaffe prone mouth? I always thought Pres. Obama could have made a better choice in a vice president. I wonder what those in the Obama administration must be thinking when they hear about his runnings off at the mouth! There must be a plan of action in the works to deal with his future gaffes, because you know there are plenty more coming.
The latest with Vice Pres. Biden is his response to a small business owner's remark about taxes. Our VP told the man to stop being a smart a$$. Now how do you think that stands with taxpaying voters? The VP should know by now that when he is out and about, people are waiting for the chance to catch him saying something wrong, stupid and/or insulting. Earlier this year, Vice Pres. Biden was heard over a hot mic complimenting Pres. Obama about his health care victory using the "F" word. Go here to read the Biden 2008-2009 gaffes.

Even though these victories are at the primary level and the real contest will be in November, it was to hear that Nikkie Haley and Tim Scott won last night. Nikki Haley was able to win the Republican gubernatorial nomination after a very nasty battle within the GOP at the state level. The party establishment tried to stop her with nasty allegations of marital infidelity. The voting public did not buy it.
She won the primary but did not get a 50% majority so there had to be a runoff. During the weeks before the runoff, her conversion to Christianity became a public question. That did not work either. Along with a Sarah Palin endorsement, Ms. Haley was victorious over the state level Republican establishment.
Tim Scott won the primary runoff to become South Carolina's Republican congressional candidate for the 1st district. He beat out Paul Thurmond, son of the late Strom Thurmond. Mr. Scott also received an endorsement from Sarah Palin. Do not think a black southern Republican candidate is not raising some eyebrows, especially with Democrats. Generally, a conservative black candidate drives most of the black community to distraction.
I have heard and read about a few blacks personalities having more questions about Mr. Scott's intentions than they have about the mysterious and under qualified (have you heard him in interviews?) South Carolina Democratic senatorial candidate, Alvin Greene, who is facing porn charges and has received endorsements from a few black media personalities! In any case, I hope to see a November victory for Nikki Haley and Tim Scott.

There were key primary races last night and the women ruled mostly in the GOP and there was the runoff victory for Arkansas's Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Democrat. I had my eye on Republican Meg Whitman who won and I am routing for her to beat Democrat Jerry Brown to be the next Governor of California. Many of the strong right wing are not crazy about Carly Fiorina. The Tea Party backed Chuck DeVore to oust Sen. Barbara Boxer in November. One has to realize this is California where it is not reasonable for a strong conservative to be elected at the primary, but get trounced in the general election against a Democrat. The more moderate Fiorina is a good choice to oust the Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer in November.
Sue Louden looked like she was going to be the Republican challenger to the politically dying Democrat Sen. Harry Reid. She started making some rather stupid statements, such as the chicken barter statement in relation to paying doctors for their services. Thus challenger Sharon Angle who pulled up in the polling with Tea Party backing is now set to be Sen Reid's Republican challenger. The way things are going for Reid right now, It sort of looking like Ms. Angle will be Nevada's newly elected senator in November. Also, Nikki Haley was able to withstand nasty allegations of marital infedelity to beat out to become the Republican and first female candidate for Governor of South Carolina.
Finally, from the "times, they are a changing" tidbits, in a GOP primary's 1st Congressional District in South Carolina, State Rep. Tim Scott who is black received a higher pecentage of votes over Strom Thurmond's son, Paul Thurmond and Carroll Campbell, but not enough to seal the Republican candidacy . There will be a runoff election between Rep. Scott and Mr. Thurmond on June 22nd. This is generally considered an off year for elections, but with the Democrats' fear of seat losses and the Republicans' hope for seat gains, this election year is going to be kind of riveting.

Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton came out of her international realm and spoke on a domestic policy matter a few days ago. She said that the rich are not paying their fare share of taxes. Never mind that they are the private sector employers. Are you aware of anyone in poverty running a business that employs folks? Madam Sec. Clinton believes in the liberal left solution of taxing those who are the real stimulators of the economy.
Do you wonder what is she doing spouting off on who should be paying more taxes! Could she be possibly positioning herself to challenge Pres. Barack Obama for the 2012 Democratic presidential nomination? Some people who were fed up with the previous administrations and/or politics in general fell for the "Hope and Change" that candidate Barack Obama was pumping. But they did not expect extreme left actions such as Obamacare, increased deficit spending, bringing in someone like Kevin Jennings into the administration who promotes books describing sex acts between preschoolers, playing down Islamic terrorism and more.
I remember Madam Sec. Clinton saying this at the beginning of her failed presidential candidacy in 2007. That statement can only be attributed to socialism. Anyone who is a centrist Democrat, an Independent or a fed up Republican and possibly considering Hillary Clinton for a second presidential run, better realize that she is cut from the same liberal, far left cloth as Pres. Obama.
