Democrat Bennie G. Thompson presents Thad Cochran the bill for black support [Darleen Click]

What was that … something about any Republican being a better choice over a Democrat no matter what?

Senator Thad Cochran (R., Miss.) needs to reward the black voters who crossed party lines to support him in his runoff against tea party challenger Chris McDaniel by backing some concrete policy initiatives, according the the state’s only member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“We have historically black colleges in our state who do the best job they can trying to educate our citizens,” Representative Bennie G. Thompson told National Review Online during a Wednesday interview at the Capitol. “I’d like to see efforts that they receive full funding. I’d like to see the health care of our citizens improved; our children die too young. I’d like to see an increased effort to make sure that the minority unemployment rate inn our state is reduced. So, there are a lot of opportunities for us to start with.”

Thompson said that it wasn’t difficult for Cochran to rally black voters against McDaniel. “I don’t know anybody black who likes the Tea Party. So, if a tea-party person is running against another Republican and you ask a black person, they’re going to support the regular Republican,” he said. “Their platform is counter to a lot of the beliefs of many African Americans. We think there is a place in government to make the lives of its citizens better; that there is a place in government to make sure that education, health care, and other things are available to all citizens. So, that’s a reasonable expectation of government. But this ‘limited government’ and other things that you hear from a lot of tea-party candidates does not resonate well with the black community.”

Well, they said if I voted for Mitt Romney it would return American to pre-Civil War era …

And they were right!

Who knew black folk were eager to return to the plantation, as long as they gets their three squares and a cot and it’s massa who done pays for it — with Other People’s Money?

  1. i owe nothing to the black demonrats


  2. “I don’t know anybody black who likes the Tea Party.”

    What the hell? This jackass Thompson hasn’t met Sen. Tim Scott? Or is just another lying piece of shit.

  3. sdferr

    Tim Scott isn’t really black, you know.

  4. “Tim Scott isn’t really black, you know.”

    Let’s just say this about that: I would invite anyone — to include the jackass Bennie Thompson — to say this “isn’t really black” to Sen. Scott’s face.

  5. Shave and a hair cut! Two bits!

  6. “Senator Thad Cochran (R., Miss.) needs to reward the black voters who crossed party lines ”

    Thad: “Shhh. Move loser. You’re blocking my view of those Amnesty guys.”

  7. But this ‘limited government’ and other things that you hear from a lot of tea-party candidates does not resonate well with the black community.”

    – Translation…”You all wants to take away dah free stuff Obama’s givin’ us….we don like dat.”

  8. all the “talented tenth” blacks are demonrats master.

  9. [C]rossed party lines

    Almost sounds like scabs at a union picket line. Do the establishment R’s really want to go down the same deadend path as the D’s where they become dependent on an identity group[s] always voting in lockstep for them to remain in power?

    Maybe they do and will but what they have broadcast with their method to drag Thad across the finish line is that they are now toxic to conservatives, to “their”[former] base. Bad enough the “take my ball and go home” that was displayed first, but not last by a long shot, in Delaware. By playing the “race” card against their own team they have poisoned all between the two sides. I hope Thad was worth it boys.

  10. Off-topic but still pertinent:

    I just got done talking to some people from El Salvador about the refugees coming up through Mexico. They see it a lot differently than we do because, well, they’ve lived it.

    What happens is that the parent(s) come up here to the USA to find work, because in El Salvador there’s nothing. Lawyers have to resort to selling shoes; people with two masters’ degrees drive to Honduras to buy clothes to sell in El Salvador. Being educated or skilled gets you nowhere. So the parents leave the kids with relatives and try to get things set up so they can send for the kids later.

    Trouble is, El Salvador is lousy with gangs and mafiosos and corrupt gubmint/police, so the people have zero protection against them. Once they find out you have relatives in the U.S., they’ll kidnap you for ransom, and if your relatives don’t make with the cash, they’ll kill your whole family.

    The other thing is that when a kid doesn’t want to join the gangs, he risks being shot on the spot. Even before this latest crisis I had heard about a couple of young LDS men who chose to go on missions instead of join the gangs and right before they were to leave they were murdered in their beds.

    My Salvadoran friend (been here 35 years) won’t go back to her home country anymore because she has to spend all the time hiding in her sister’s house so that nobody knows an American is there.

    So along with the false advertising and Obama’s encouragement and whatever other vile machinations among the politicians, there’s this genuine humanitarian crisis of kids fleeing to the U.S. to escape being kidnapped, murdered, or forced into the pandillas.

    See why Mexico guards its southern border so carefully? To stop the Central Americans from leaving their severe hell-holes to live in a slightly less severe hell-hole.

    “Send ’em back,” I was saying just today, thinking that only poverty plus their parents awaited them.

    Maybe not, though.

    Maybe this time it’s different.

  11. Where’s Dana to explain how this is all perfectly acceptable, just so long as the winning candidate has an ‘R’ after his name?

    Yeah, I didn’t think so either…


  12. Bennie G. Thompson isn’t talking to Thad Cochrane here any more than he’s talking to black Mississipians here. He’s talking to conservative McDaniels’ supporters, reminding them why Cochrane won.

  13. What you say may well be true Dicentra but we also have this making things happen too.

    HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR): website:

    In order to help UAC [Unaccompanied Minors] access legal representation to the greatest extent possible and practicable, ORR coordinates a legal access project. The legal access project provides UAC with presentations on their rights, conducts individualized legal screenings, and builds pro bono legal representation capacity. Many UAC meet conditions that make them eligible for legal relief to remain in the United States including asylum; special visas for children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned by the parents or guardian; special visas for victims of severe forms of trafficking and other types of criminal violence; or adjustment of status for those who have a legal resident or citizen family member.


    ORR provides placement services to UAC to facilitate safe and timely release, and ensure that children are released to family members or other sponsors that can care for the child’s physical and mental well-being. ORR conducts home studies prior to release if safety is in question. ORR also funds follow-up services for at-risk children after release to sponsors from ORR custody.

    Sudan seems harder to get out of than Central America.

  14. So. When some 23 century Edward Gibbon writes the history of the decline and fall of the United Sates of America, who do you suppose will take most of the blame? Democrats like Obama and Clinton, Reid and Pelosi who perpetrated it, or Republicans like McCain and Romney, McConnell and Boehner who let them do it?

  15. To the question “Do you want the Left to win?” I present the following evidence that they already have. They won a long, long time ago. Before most of us were old enough to vote. Click a link to see the next layer of structure under that agency.

    • 1862 — Dept of Agriculture

    • 1889 — Dept of Labor

    • 1903 — Dept of Commerce

    • 1953 — Health & Human Services

    • 1965 — Housing & Urban Development

    • 1967 — Dept of Transportation

    • 1977 — Dept of Energy

    • 1979 — Dept of Education

    • 2002 — Dept of Homeland Security

    These illegitimate federal agencies (plus the others) have a total budget of $2.3 trillion annually and employ 4.2 million people. Every one of these agencies is an arrogation of power by the executive branch TO WHICH IT IS NOT ENTITLED — no, not even under the “general welfare” or “good & plenty” clause. None of these functions are enumerated in the Constitution as being under federal jurisdiction (except DHS, which is actually the evil twin of DoD). All of these agencies are vampiric drains on our resources, straitjackets on our prosperity, and shackles on our freedom.

    Every agency has offices throughout the country — in somebody’s state — which means that nobody in congress has an incentive to scale back, let alone dismantle, these behemoths.

    Remember that Ronald Reagan tried to strangle the Dept of Education in its effing crib, and he still couldn’t do it.

    As long as these federal agencies exist — as well as the ones with some justification — the ratchet steadily moves leftward despite any efforts on our part. As Steyn says, you don’t need to be president for life if you leave behind an automated bureaucracy in its place.

    Putting McDaniels or Bevin in Congress or Jesus Himself in the White House won’t stop this Leviathan from growing even bigger. The strangler fig long ago killed its host, leaving the latticework of the fig in its place.

    Which, that looks just like a prison to me.

  16. What you say may well be true Dicentra but we also have this making things happen too.

    See, because the kids number in the tens of thousands, we don’t have the resources to sort them out, so we’ll err on the side of compassion and let them all in.

    Anyone who doubts that our ruling elite would superimpose its bullshit on the backs of real refugees — increasing the numbers by orders of magnitude — stand on your head.

  17. Rand Paul says “these black folk is nice I like em sumpin awful you should too cause they so nice who care what my daddy say”

    And you know what?

    Rand Paul is not wrong.

  18. you tea baggers all need to find your inner Rand Paul

    I did just this evening and you know what?

    It feels SOOOOO good

  19. “these black folk” being whoever Bennie G. Thompson claims to have marched out for a Republican primary run off for a Mississippi Senate race to just barely win a squeaker ?

    Yeah I’m sure that’s supposed to be some great pertinent advice or whatever for the tea party or Sarah Palin or papa duck commander or McCain whoever it is you’re burbling on about in your peppermint tower.

  20. Do the establishment R’s really want to go down the same deadend path as the D’s where they become dependent on an identity group[s] always voting in lockstep for them to remain in power?

    I can’t believe you even asked that, geoffb.

    Happyfeet explained, except Putin got the idea from the yellow peril and its ilk.

  24. The poor English skills fit.

  25. I’d like to see the health care of our citizens improved; our children die too young. I’d like to see an increased effort to make sure that the minority unemployment rate in our state is reduced.

    Bennie, of course, lies. He isn’t intent on seeing the health care of the citizens of Mississippi improved. He enacts measures which objectively reduce the care available to the “young” children of his state, as well as the rest of the country. And reducing unemployment? Ha. He would no more unleash the self-motivated industry of the people of Mississippi than he would mention the many black men and women who were present at the creation of the tea parties, who ardently fill their ranks and work for their expansion. As for his mouthings about education, we can see his care for that in his own ignorance, i.e., none.

  26. On the “opposing our black President” front, a charge leveled by racialists against Chris McDaniel, we have:

    Breaking: Supreme Court limits President’s ‘recess appointment’ powers


    The Supreme Court has limited a president’s power to make temporary appointments to fill high-level government jobs.

    The court said Thursday that President Obama exceeded his authority when he invoked the Constitution’s provision on recess appointments to fill slots on the National Labor Relations Board in 2012.

    The justices said in their first-ever consideration of the Constitution’s recess appointments clause that Congress gets to decide when it is in recess and that there was no recess when Obama acted. The president said he made the appointments in the face of Republican refusal to allow the NLRB to function. ***


  27. And related again to opposition to the great, the magnificent ClownDisaster, Andrew McCarthy calls out pathetic cunt John Boehner for his court-jestoeherly ridiculous ‘law suit’ to pretend to bring IWonPenPhone to heel.

  28. *** Meet Leslie Caldwell. President Obama has installed Ms. Caldwell, known as a “terror of a prosecutor,” as head of the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice. It has been over a decade since Ms. Caldwell destroyed Arthur Anderson, and with it, 85,000 jobs—only to be reversed by the Supreme Court nine to nothing (well after she went into private practice). Now the president has brought her back—with a big promotion—and the vengeance of DOJ already aimed at Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas and others. ***

  29. *** In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday limited the president’s power to make recess appointments for vacancies in the executive branch. The case, National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning et al., specifically related to three recess appointments Obama made in 2012 to the NLRB while the Senate was in pro forma sessions, convening every three days. As the Court has it, for the Senate to truly be in recess, it would have to be out for at least 10 days.

    The majority opinion in the case was written by Justice Stephen Breyer, which was joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sotomayor, and Kagan. A concurring opinion written by Antonin Scalia was joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Thomas and Alito.

    The Court’s summary states (emphasis ours) “The Recess Appointments Clause empowers the President to fill existing vacancy during any recess—intra-session or inter-session—of sufficient length.” But the question here is whether the Senate was actually in recess. “A Senate recess that is so short that it does not require the consent of the House under that Clause is not long enough to trigger the President’s recess-appointment power.” ***

  30. The staggering price of crushing the tea party

    An analysis in purely leftist terms of economics and money as the only cost. That “price” is miniscule compared to the price to come for their embrace of the poisonous means of the Democrats which was so publicly used for such a small “victory”.

  31. Holy smack.

    One of the theories is that this Children’s Crusade is being fomented by the narcotraficantes to keep the border agents busy while they carry on their trafficking, unmolested. Another is that human traffickers are just trying to separate kids from their parents, the easier to pick them off and sell them.

    Or that the criminal organization known as the Beltway Crowd (red & blue both) are changing the demographic and/or using the issue to push through amnesty.

    AND the kids are fleeing the kidnappings and murders.

    Sweet Meteor of Death, I beseech you…

  32. If we had sealed our southern boarder years ago and kept the illegal immigrations numbers down, we would be in a better position to help legitimate refugees.

  33. RE: Leslie Caldwell’s appointment as mentioned by the estimable Sdferr at 0934:

    So…The Jarrett Junto is now going full-steam-ahead in targeting Big Business, which has been a very willing and happy financial partner of the Despots in their Fascist Dance Tyrannie.

    Now, I know they will only target, say, a dozen or so of them for the purpose of showing the rest that they had better continue the partnership.

    But, still, all I can remark is: Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha – to infinity!
