  • Selective Outrage: Sen. Robert Byrd, Democrat KKK Leader and More

    Hate is hate, dead is dead. We should stop politicizing bigotry and violence by demonizing some demographics and giving others a veritable pass. The demonstration by white nationalist haters in Virginia last weekend resulted from the removal a statue of confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Confederate flag and statue controversies are raging throughout the South. Some view Confederate symbols as disgusting tributes to slave states defeated in the Civil War. Others warn against censoring symbols of a history we should never forget. On the margins are people who wish the South had won. The movement to eradicate confederate symbols began...

    It is shocking that in the current year of 2017, there are hateful symbols of the Ku Klux Klan still in the US Capitol. The statue to Robert Byrd must be removed. -Robert Byrd was not only a KKK member but was in a key leadership position as "exalted cyclops" -Robert Byrd actively worked against desegregation efforts and filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 -He spent his career enriching himself and his cronies instead of being a civic minded leader for the people, earning himself the nefarious title "King of Pork" by Citizens Against Government Waste -He spent his...

    President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slaveowners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The alt-left movement, which shares the blame along with arguably racist groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa, hate America so much that they want to erase all vestiges of American history and throw them down an Orwellian memory hole to be supplanted...

    Will They Be Removed?: 30 Places Named After Former Klansman Robert Byrd August 16, 2017 That's just a few. Since we're gonna rename schools and take down every sign and statue of people who have a controversial past. Are we also going to include Former Klansman and Grand Wizard Robert Byrd? If we are consistent, these are some places named after Robert KKK Byrd that should be taken down. You won't see this on cable news.
  • MEDIA Video Surfaces of HILLARY Clinton Calling KKK Grand Dragon ‘Heart & Soul’ of AMERICA!

    As we begin Super Tuesday, conservative business Donald Trump has been under fire for not disavowing David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). It was a classic “gotcha” question by the liberal media, as Trump has disavowed Duke and his racism in years past. But what about Hillary Clinton’s record on race? Now, a video has appeared on YouTube of Hillary Clinton speaking highly of a former Klan Member. Former U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) was a card-carrying member and recruiter for the KKK. In the 1940s, he obtained the KKK rank of “Exalted cyclops”...

  • VIDEO: Hillary Loves KKK Endorsing Trump, Then BRUTAL Video From Her Past Is Found

    Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has probably done more for minorities in an hour than Hillary Clinton has during the entirety of her corrupt and unethical life. In fact, part of Clinton’s unethical lifestyle is reflected in her duplicitous reaction to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke’s endorsement of Trump, by making incriminating remarks towards the GOP front-runner. The hypocrisy comes from the praises she heaped upon the late Sen. Robert Bryd — a KKK participant and recruiter. The first words uttered from Clinton’s mouth in this newly discovered video said it all: “Today our country has lost a true...

      U.S. President Barack Obama pulls up his collar as he arrives in the rain with first lady Michelle Obama to attend the Republic Day parade in New Delhi January 26, 2015. REUTERS/Jim Bourg The White House announced on Wednesday that neither President Barack Obama or first lady Michelle Obama will be attending the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. While Justice Scalia’s funeral apparently doesn’t warrant Obama’s presence, here are six funerals that did. Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI) Less than two months before the 2012 election, both Obamas took time out of their schedule to attend the...
  • Senator Byrd Statue to be removed from WV State Capitol Rotunda?? Petitions etc

    I received a phone call yesterday afternoon, Aug 18. I have many family members in WV and they were telling me a strange tale. The local press does not seem to want to cover this yet. Due to some strange chance of genetics, I have familial ties with some government officials and legal folks in WV. The info I received that followed this story had some verifiable links and a part of a story that I didn’t have time to check yesterday evening, but I figured I would do that today…Aug 19. Part of the email had to do with...

    Liberals are famous for shaming conservatives for their past associations with questionable characters, while they exempt themselves from the same standards. What a shocker! Every other week, a liberal Twitter troll cites a Republican politician's innocent appearance at some long-forgotten political event with the likes of a Ku Klux Klan member, hoping to besmirch his reputation. Better yet, sometimes one of them will post a black-and-white photo of such an appearance, as if it's a smoking gun that will end the hapless Republican's career. It shouldn't surprise you that liberals had no problem with Sen. Robert Byrd's despicable association with...

    Sen. Jay Rockefeller and West Virginia were an odd mix at first—a Harvard-educated native New Yorker from one of the nation’s richest families arriving in one of the poorest states. Through a half century of public service, he made it work. And as he heads into retirement as the last member of the Rockefeller family dynasty in political office—and the only Democrat—the five-term U.S. senator leaves a blueprint for fighting to fix real-life problems for burdened families and to protect the nation’s coal miners. […] Rockefeller was the state’s junior senator for 25 years, yet carved his own path of...

    In 2005, then-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist threatened to end the filibuster for judicial appointments by forcing a mid-session rule change on a majority vote, an act that would have ended two centuries of precedent. Before he could act, though, the Gang of 14 arose, led by Republican John McCain, to preserve the senatorial tradition, brokering a deal that left conservatives fuming by depriving Frist of his partisan majority. Eight years later, with Harry Reid threatening to take the same action on executive-branch appointments, where is that Old Gang of Ours? According to NBC, at least McCain might be riding...

    The recruitment drive to join the Ku Klux Klan in Covington, Ga., is in full swing again as residents are being urged to join the brotherhood of White supremacists via fliers dropped outside their homes, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The “Save Our Race” fliers were placed in to clear plastic sandwich bags with a rock and distributed throughout the Laurel Ridge subdivision. According to one of the complex’s residents, who chose to remain anonymous, though, most of her neighbors threw the racist announcement away. “I think they are just trying to [stir] up the little bit of racism that some...

    ABC News, in a rather surprising bit of actual investigative journalism, is covering some newly released documents from our intelligence agencies dating back to the 1960s. In response to an Associated Press FOIA request, the FBI has provided records of some very interesting and potentially highly embarrassing exchanges between a young Senator Robert Byrd, who sought secret documents regarding unnamed civil rights leaders of the time. His actions also managed to spark something of an internal war between two agencies over their inability to keep secret documents under control. U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd obtained secret FBI documents about the...

    U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd obtained secret FBI documents about the civil rights movement that were leaked by the CIA and triggered an angry confrontation between the two agencies in the 1960s, according to newly released FBI records. Byrd, who died in June 2010 at age 92, had sought the FBI intelligence while suspecting that communists and subversives were guiding the civil rights cause, the records show.

    TODAY is Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution in 1787. Since 2005, by Congressional mandate, all educational institutions receiving federal funds — from preschools to universities, whether public or private — are required to provide relevant educational programming to observe the occasion. Boston College, where I teach, generally hosts a symposium; the local middle school offers skits about the First Amendment. The Constitution Day mandate was a brainchild of the late Senator Robert C. Byrd, who believed it was necessary to address the nation’s lack of appreciation for our founding document.

    HARRY REID: "I’m glad I had the opportunity to know Ted Kennedy. Whether you agreed with him or not, what a life he lead with his two brothers being assassinated, his other brother being killed in World War II. And Robert Byrd who just died. What a– he was in the Congress of the United States for more than 25 percent of the time that we have been a country. That’s fairly remarkable."

    West Virginia Republican John Raese is gaining much more ground than expected in his US Senate race and has just come out with a hard hitting ad about his Democratic opponent's long record of supporting President Barack Obama's liberal agenda. But rather than try to defend himself on the issues, Governor Joe Manchin contacted the daughter of the late Senator Robert Byrd to tell her that a photo used in the ad was taken at her father's memorial service.
