And now for something different, i.e. the Shirley Sherrod story that not even Fox or Rush Limbaugh is doing, let alone the libstream hacks and hackettes---a story involving a cool 13 million dollars won previously by Shirley (or her justice organization), her old ties to Vilsack, her sudden appointment to big-time bureaucracy in DC etc etc

RDLN Graduate and Board Vice Chair Shirley Sherrod was appointed Georgia Director for Rural Development by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack on July 25. Only days earlier, she learned that New Communities, a group she founded with her husband and other families (see below) has won a thirteen million dollar settlement in the minority farmers law suit Pigford vs Vilsack.

/////The report does not investigate whether the actual reality was racial discrimination or racial flim-flam, but in any case Shirley got 13 million in justice, and at least $300,000 for "just us", i.e. her and her husband. And Vilsack keeps popping up in the Shirley saga/////

... The cash (settlement) award acknowledges racial discrimination on the part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the years 1981-85. ... New Communities is due to receive approximately $13 million ($8,247,560 for loss of land and $4,241,602 for loss of income; plus $150,000 each to Shirley and Charles for pain and suffering). There may also be an unspecified amount in forgiveness of debt. This is the largest award so far in the minority farmers law suit (Pigford vs Vilsack).

////As Shirley would know, US taxpayers may even award just the attempt to farm, if Discrimination is a new American industry//////

As part of a April 14, 1999 class action case settlement, commonly known as the Pigford case, U.S. taxpayers have already provided over $1 billion in cash, non-credit awards and debt relief to almost 16,000 black farmers who claimed that they were discriminated against by USDA officials as they “farmed or attempted to farm.” In addition, USDA’s Farm Service Agency spent over $166 million on salaries and expenses on this case from 1999-2009, according to agency records.

Members of Congress may approve another $1.15 billion this week to settle cases from what some estimate may be an additional 80,000 African-Americans who have also claimed to have been discriminated against by USDA staff.

////A US Industry that's booming?/////

However, confronted with the skyrocketing federal deficit, more officials are taking a critical look at the billion dollars spent thus far and wondering when these discrimination cases will ever end. Already, the number of people who have been paid and are still seeking payment will likely exceed the 26,785 black farmers who were considered to even be operating back in 1997, according to USDA. That’s the year the case initially began as Pigford v. (then Agriculture Secretary) Glickman and sources predicted that, at most, 3,000 might qualify.

At least one source who is extremely familiar with the issue and who asked to remain anonymous because of potential retribution, says there are a number of legitimate cases who have long been denied their payments and will benefit from the additional funding. But many more appear to have been solicited in an attempt to “game” the Pigford system.

Ari will hang up on her, in two weeks.

Michael Amann

Monica, you are my secret conservative crush.


As she primps for the Oprah Show, does Breitbart realize that he has probably been attacked by ACORN? The clip was a classical trojan horse, and Shirl is cashing in on her apparent openness to having milk in her coffee, a self-portraiture, created at the time to induce the cooperation of whites in the promotion of Blacks in Agriculture. This is why she was filmed at the NAACP. There were no whites in the audience - and Shirl probably has few white buddies.

The NAACP is there to promote Blacks, based on racial grievances going back to the Depression or even the Civil War. Blacks are right, and whites are wrong. There is no post-racial nation as long as the NAACP exists.

The English and the Spanish enslaved them. We had little to do with it. They should collect from Spain.


Truther, I think Breitbart figured it out. If he hasn't, he should be listening to Michael Savage.


Well, well, well. It is apparent to all that have the courage to discuss race in this country that poor little ol' Shirley is not really an innocent victim of a gratuitous smear after all. Rather the evidence reveals she is a wild eyed bigoted racial grievance opportunist and always has been - Spooners notwithstanding.

Anyway, the issue with me surrounding this story is not Sherrod or the racism that clearly exists within the NAACP, it is the way the pusillanimous lamestream media is falling all over themselves apologizing. MEA CULPA! MEA CULPA! HOW DARE WE PREJUDGE A BLACK WOMAN'S INTENT? What bunch of spineless cowards!

Kudos to the brave Andrew Breitbart for his timely news story exposing the racial bigotry in the hearts and minds of many who currently belong to the NAACP.


Take note all you honkey crackers out there; blacks who think like those in the NAACP audience of whom Sherrod spoke at demonstrate the same type of mentality of those who will be deciding who gets or doesn't get rationed health care procedures under Obamacare.



This is one of the most bizarre episodes in WH operations I've ever seen. I wish I had the complete and accurate timeline here but from the bits and pieces I've seen Miss Shirley is tooling down the highway when she gets a call wanting her to pull over on the side of the road because the WH wants her to resign in a hurry before Glen Beck goes on the air with the story of Miss Shirley on a video tape talking about race. So, Miss Shirley pulls over on the side of the road, and since it's the WH wanting her to resign she says Ok. Meanwhile the NAACP blasts her as a racist.

Even though I've said for months now this WH is inept, not even your humble conservative blogger from OK thought they could screw something up so thoroughly as they did this affair. And these morons are in charge of democracy in the free world. They haven't even been potty trained yet.

For the love of God, what else can the screw up? They're destroyed the economy, they are in the process of destroying the greatest medical system on Earth, everything they touch turns into a three ring-circus.


Truther, I think Breitbart figured it out. If he hasn't, he should be listening to Michael Savage.

Credit where due. It was from Savage I heard about the Shirley Sherrod "back story" in Wash Examiner, which almost no one else is mentioning. (Note: It's not Savage's story. He doesn't break things like a Breitbart does. But he was awake enough to notice the Wash Examiner report, apparently the only talk host that awake.) When Savage is good he's very, very good. Top kudos to Breitbart for breaking another example of sordid NAACP race hustle, but I don't think even he has gotten to the Wash Examiner revelations of Shirley's previous hustle, which has led many blacks to a shakedown of taxpayers under guise of not being able to farm due to their mellanin. Heh. It's the Wash Examiner, not a Savage or even a Breitbart, that's done the real heavy lifting in the story about Shirley Sherrod's history as a racial grievance executive,

Maybe Limbaugh and Breitbart will get to the "back story" next week. Wonder if any mediacs will reveal the history of the "sensitive" Shirley Sherrod in her capacity of what I call a Grievance Executive. She knows that the taxpayer-funded business she's in is the kind that Republicans dread even mentioning. The liberal racists will call them "racist" and their libstream hacks will stay on message. Shirley gets it. She's got her Government-blessed operation, taxpayer-funded all the way. Her kind of business has been booming ever since the Democrats' 'Great Society' of Lyndon Baines Johnson, The Gringo Advisory Board calls it The Discrimination Industry, a leading example of Government enterprise.


Why is it that 'conservatives' (Monica included) frequently speak of the need to address the issue of "black on black" crime? Why not just address the issue of black crime in general? Of course the answer is obvious; that being it is rooted in both political correctness and cowardice. Moreover, to address black crime in general would mean they'd have to address the issue black on white crime. This would expose some very uncomfortable truths the ruling elite are actively and aggressively suppressing. 'Conservatives' use the term "black on black" crime as way to put on the facade they have the best interests of blacks in mind whilst cleverly shirting the issue of black on white crime. The fact is black on white crime abounds whereas white on black crime is virtually non-existent. For example: PER YEAR approximately 15,000 white females are raped by black males. Compared that to less than 10 (ten) black females are raped by white males. Again, that's per year!


Could be that conservatives bend over backward so as not to offend, or be labeled the "R" word? The problem is that the other side has no problem speaking their opinions, no matter how misguided, and we are busy choosing our words so carefully that we cannot or will not tell it like it is. I don't see a solution.

Why doesn't anyone ever cite the intelligence studies in relation to race? Can you argue against hard numbers and be taken seriously? 15,000 to 10 is truly amazing until you look at IQ averages, then a lot of other problems start to make perfect sense.


Hello, I'm a Racist, Pleased to Meet You
By Selwyn Duke

"There is such a thing as a conditioned response. Here's an example: Leftists call conservatives "racists." Conservatives cower and stutter some defense. Leftists call conservatives "racists" some more. Conservatives cower some more. Question: How do you think you break this pattern?

We've seen this again with the recent vitriol spewed by NAACP head Ben Jealous (a fitting last name). Speaking at the NAACP convention in Kansas City, Jealous accused the Tea Party of, take a guess...cue the "Jeopardy!" music..."racism." Just as predictably, many conservatives are running around trying to convince everyone that, by gum, they really are swell guys. No, really. I'm not a racist. I don't beat my wife. I don't kick my dog. I eat my organic vegetables and drive a Prius.

Look, why don't we just save everyone the trouble? Every time a conservative renders an opinion, we can just play a recording with a little weaselly voice screeching, "You're a wacist! You're a wacist!" (Barney Frank-style) followed by a music video featuring The Cowering Conservative -- I mean 1950s-style, duck-and-cover footage, with the tune and all.

And such conservatives abound. Oh, don't get me wrong, conservative brethren, I love ya, man. But frankly, too many of you are saps. You really don't get it. People who advocated welfare reform in the 1990s were accused of being "racist." If you're for border control, you're "racist." If you criticize Obama, you're "racist." If you oppose quotas, you're "racist." If you say that, be it nature or nurture, there are differences among groups, you're "racist." If you want English to be the national language, you're "racist." The word has become meaningless, used only to stifle and stigmatize opposition. And if calling you a heretic worked in that regard, the left would do that. And if calling you a Fig Newton worked, they would do that.

Nevertheless, the ploy prevents sap conservatives from speaking -- and even conceiving of -- certain truths. They won't say that so-called racial profiling is just part of proper profiling, they pay lip service to the relativistic idea that all cultures are morally equal, they refuse to call bigoted blacks such as Obama and Eric Holder out on their bigotry, they tolerate double standards with respect to hate crime-law application and racial jokes, and they let whites persecuted for making innocent comments twist in the wind. They won't speak unfashionable truths for fear of becoming unfashionable people. Well, all I can say is that if the Truth can be "racist," then hello, I'm a "racist." Pleased to meet you."





I posted my last seeing before seeing yours. How coincidental is that?!? Anyway, you bring up an excellent point about IQ. That fact is African Americans' mean IQ is 85 as opposed to 90 for Mestizos, 100 for whites' and 103 for east-Asians. Given that fact it should come as no surprise that blacks have the highest crime rates followed by Mestizos, Whites and east-Asians respectively. Low IQ may not be the sole causal factor for high crime rates, but the data clearly indicates it does correlate.


Should read:I posted my last comment before seeing yours.


How much does a $500 hammer cost nowadays?

When the Army was asked how many people were employed under a particular contract, their answer was somewhere between 100,000 and 800,000. When asked which was it?, they replied there were other contractors and subcontractors involved, and they would have to look into it, and get back to them.

SO, we no longer know how much the hammers cost, how many hammers are being purchased, or even how many people are buying hammers.


I was talking to a meteorologist. I launched into a lecture about the absorbtion/emission spectra of H20 versus that of CO2. He looked insulted.

He said he knew the anthropogenic effects of CO2 weer miniscule, but he felt he still had to go along with the mantra. Why? I asked him, when even Congress is backing off of cap and trade. He answered that Congress had nothing to do with it - it was NSF. No funds for people who went against the grain. Why, I asked? He thought it was the strong foreign presence at NSF - in its employees and administrators, having corrupted the institution. There have never been so many foreigners at NSF headquarters in Washington - of whom, the Russian and Chinese presence is the greatest.


The people at NSF that are the most pernicious are those who are permanent employees of NSF, not program managers chosen by the scientists, or NSF officers elected by general community. These permanent people operate behind the scenes, often connected with a foreign government, and with some key domestic scientists.


The fact is black on white crime abounds whereas white on black crime is virtually non-existent. For example: PER YEAR approximately 15,000 white females are raped by black males. Compared that to less than 10 (ten) black females are raped by white males. Again, that's per year!

The solution is simple and obvious. Americans could start defying the pc police and speaking their mind.

They'd have to start acting up. But their Big Nanny would not like that, and they know it.


Appointment TV: "Keeping Up With Shirl!"

July 23, 2010 at 09:13 PM

Monica, what we want to see now is whether the Republicans are fit for "Keeping Up With Shirl" rather than adopting the facile copping-out "it's-not-about-Shirley-Sherrod" meme.

The facts are coming out. And it's not just about a tax-plundering Racial Grievance Executive with a daughter named Russia (for 50th Anniversary of Bolshevik Revolution in 1967).

It's about yet another "personage" in Barack Obama's huge collection of Black Marxian Racists.

Will Rush Limbaugh today open that can of socialist worms? Obviously the Republican mannikins and the libstream hacks will not.

Will any 'R'?


Liberal Racism, or how the old racism is cited by an enforcer for the new racism of the Democrats' neo-plantation.

I've met the pc police, and the pc police are us.

Yes, but that makes them even more fearsome to the Americanski.
