Republicans And Netanyahu, A Real Mixture

I'm not sure how to start this, other than to say that the +GOP has really outdone itself in undermining the President, again. Only this time, it's in the most unconstitutional way possible; as in encroaching upon the sphere of foreign policy, which is the President's prerogative. Basically +John Boehner, by inviting +Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress without letting +Barack Obama know, is a complete lack of comprehension towards the principle of separation of powers. Essentially, Boehner's action was completely unconstitutional as it's the President, not Congress that sets our nation's foreign policy, and besides being an utter lack of respect, it's also a severe breach of international protocol on the part of Netanyahu who needed to first get clearance via Obama. Because Obama did not approve of this, there's no reason for the invitation.

As for Netanyahu, this is little more than a campaign stunt for the upcoming Israeli elections in March. There's better ways to go about campaigning and for Netanyahu to do this, given that he tried to swing the Presidential Election to +Mitt Romney in 2012, he's really got no credibility doing this. And his message of Obama making Israel and the region less safe by talking to Iran is complete bulls**t if you ask me. It's the same tired line from the Neocons, as a way of getting their d**ks hardened watching our nation go to war somewhere in the world.

But here's the real kicker in all of this, the Republicans in Congress have gotten themselves in such a corner, there's no way they'll be able to get themselves out. How? +Fox News isn't even backing up their sorry asses. Without Fox, the Republicans are defenseless.

State Of The Union 6 Years In

While it's true that +Barack Obama is not up for re-election in 2016, it should be noted that he's done quite a lot, more than he's been given credit for over the past 6 years. All in spite of the Republicans trying to block him every step of the way. Take for instance the economy, it's been growing at its fastest rate since 2008.

Selma Movie

After watching the film, +Selma Movie, with my lady yesterday, it got me thinking hard about the real lessons we ought to take out of Martin Luther King's head-on effort to kill one of the worst chokeholds that remained of Jim Crow in the South, the blocking of the Black vote and Black registration to do so. One of those lessons is that we shouldn't be ignorant of the fact that there are still forces in this country seeking to keep White hegemony intact and doing so by intruding upon one of our most basic rights, the right to vote. Don't underestimate this movement's power and strength because the movement for White supremacist hegemony is one with a history of violent resistance to racial equality.

I want to point out something about what the Dixicans (Dixie [Southern] Republicans) are doing to the vote. By making registration nearly impossible for Black voters in Southern states, like Mississippi and Alabama, the Republicans are attempting to enforce the same code of racial hierarchy as there had been from 1877-1964 put in place by the Dixicrats (Dixie [Southern] Democrats). I need to stress that not all former Southern Democrats were committed racists and/or segregationists, just like not all Southern Republicans are that way either. But many are, and the ones that are about racial superiority and/or separateness are the people we need to keep an eye out for. As I've said in earlier posts, these people would like to take us back to at least the Antebellum.

What To Watch For From Republicans

While I'm 100% aware of what many media outlets on the left are saying about 2016, I'm finding it exceedingly ironic that they're parroting the same lines that I've been spewing at times over the past 4 years. It's important to keep our eyes open to the reality that the Republicans will rig the vote in 2016 to capture the Presidency (2000 & 2004 should sound familiar).
