Flashback: Liberal Colin Powell Was Advising Barack Obama Since June 2007

By Debbie Schlussel
Since I wrote about Black liberal Colin Powell’s endorsement of Black liberal Barack Hussein Obama, I remembered this piece I wrote almost a year-and-a-half ago about how Colin Powell had been advising Obama even then, in June of last year. And I also wrote about Colin Powell’s very liberal foreign policy and national security views–which mirror Obama’s–then. Ditto for his support for and benefits from race-based affirmative action.
Given all this are you really surprised that Powell endorsed Obama? Is it really the big deal the liberal mainstream press is making out of it? No and No:

Colin Powell Wants to See More Terrorists Freed

By Debbie Schlussel


I’ve never liked Colin Powell, and I’ve always seen him as the General and Secretary of State with no clothing. Everyone was so impressed with him, based on absolutely nothing. He was a lousy general, a worse Secretary of State, and a pan-Arabist who helped advance Islamists all around. True, he served our country in the military and during Vietnam, but so have many completely unsung others far better than he.
I remember, during the the Clinton Administration when Americans lined up for blocks, waiting for him to sign their copy of his book at appearances. At that time, Powell had the highest rating of any potential candidate for President. But one of the broadcast network news reporters asked people waiting in line why they liked Powell and which one of his political views they liked. No-one could answer the question. Frankly, they liked Powell because they felt good about supporting a prominent Black man for President. Yet, it was the ultimate racism, because they gave this man a free pass based on race.
Both Bushes–father and son–also engaged in the Powell treatment, giving this lefty a lot of power over military and foreign policy for no good reason other than, frankly, affirmative action. There are plenty of smart, accomplished Black men in the military, the policy analysis arena, and government–conservatives–who’d have been far better.
But rather than reward conservatives who put them in office, both Bushes rewarded liberalism by choosing Powell–a promoter of Arafat and a man who has worked especially against Bush, the son, despite the prominent positions the current Prez gave him. (I’d love to see Independent Conservative, La Shawn Barber, Thomas Sowell, or Larry Elder in a power position in this or any Administration. Then, America would be in much better shape. They’re far better than anyone currently in the Bush cabinet.)
And Powell repeatedly plays the race card. As SecState, for example, he told MTV that the Bush’s picked him because he has light skin and looks White. If a White person had said that, they’d have instantly been forced to turn in a resignation. But not Colin Powell. All hail the former foreign policy Emperor with no clothing.
Now, Powell is advising the most far-left front-runner in the Presidential race, Barack Hussein Obama, and he’s urging us to shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, and give the terrorist detainees and their ACLU lawyers access to our Judge Ito/O.J./Paris Hilton Justice system.
Yeah, that’ll work. Just ask terrorists Sami Al-Arian (acquitted on 9 counts/jury deadlocked on 9 counts, just as I predicted), Sami Omar Al-Hussayen (acquitted), Zacarias Moussaoui (spared death penalty because O.J.-style jury read Zacarias-was-abused-as-a-child pop psychology book by his brother), Detroit Al-Qaeda Terror Cell members (guilty verdicts overturned by dishonest, corrupt Judge Gerald Rosen and equally dishonest/corrupt U.S. Attorneys Jeffrey Collins, Craig Morford, and Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno”) .
Yes, we should give the ACLU and terrorists the same rights as U.S. citizens on U.S. soil and let them make such a mockery, such a circus that they go free. Great solution, Mr. Powell.
Actually, I’m glad to see Powell finally consistent in his treatment of Islamic terrorists. Where, before, he used to pander to them when they attacked Israelis and Jews, including Arafat, now Powell also panders to the terrorists who attack Americans.
Thank G-d Colin Powell never got to be President. But even though he’s just a political has-been and private citizen now, by the amount of attention the Mainstream Media give his every utterance, you’d think he is President.
And the current guy occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was too dumb to know this guy wasn’t on his side. Or America’s.

Remember, I wrote this almost 1.5 years ago, and the Colin Powell column I wrote from which I reprinted excerpts yesterday was written and published in April 2001. The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s why Powell’s endorsement of Obama is hardly a shocker or even news.

I also remember people in my circle saying that Powell would be a good candidate for president. Same ones, pretty much liked Rice. Both for the same reasons. Black and (supposedly) conservative. When asked to explain some conservative views none could explain except to say that they were Bush’s. Aaaand we know what that really proves. Nothing.
Since before Desert Shield I’ve thought Powell was an empty suit and your column illustrates it with info I’d not heard before.

Why don’t you have your own show on Fox?
It’s a shame this sort of precise and prescient commentary isn’t being disseminated on a mass audience medium daily.
Oh well, there’s always Geraldo — and another “hurricane” live feed. Is it a sin to pray for that wave that sweeps him away from our screens forever?

Powell is another closet black muslim. Someone should stick his head in a pencil sharpener.

Many well meaning folks seem to feel that by supporting a black for the office of president of the United States of America they will legitimize their claim on “rightousness” and “eternal life” apparently not even realizing the content of the candidates character is far more important than the color of his/her skin. And so we are faced with the prospect of millions of folks going to the polls on Nov 4 to elect a third world thug who, if elected, will most likely attempt to impose sharia law on the US.

Colin Powell is another example of why affirmative action does not work. All it does is breed contempt against white people and gives them a sense of entitlement which allows them to rise far above where they would be if they were judged on merit.
If you read between the lines of Powell’s biography you can see that every step of the way some white guy was promoting him based solely on his skin color.
He endorsed Barry because he is black and despite the fact Obama he has zero character what so ever shows the utter contempt he has for the people that gave him a hand up.John McCain was one of those people and I just wonder how he feels now that Powell has kicked him in the teeth.
In the end, he is just another racist and a product of the affirmative action discrimination program invented by the liberal commies in Wash, DC. to divide the races.

Americans have to thank their elected and re-elected POTUS, as for the judges and open borders and shielding Al-Sauds and increasing student’s visas and that Bin Laden is scott free, for Colin and Condi.
As long as it is not the “other party” selling out the nation. Americans can’t see beyond their party, no matter if the nation is sold for a peso or a petro-dollar.

Colin Powell = An Affirmative Action dickhead!

“And so we are faced with the prospect of millions of folks going to the polls on Nov 4 to elect a third world thug who, if elected, will most likely attempt to impose sharia law on the US.”
As a matter of interest, how exactly would he do that?
Would he kind of sneak it through while Congress were watching the Superbowl?
Or pass it into law by disguising it as an American Idol phone-in?
Please explain…

Liberal, Socialist, anti-American, blah, blah, blah.
Why are you so afraid to call it what it is?
An Awakening.
Americans have turned their backs on the failed, immoral policies of Republicanism.
Face it.
Reaganomics and the party that spawned it are over.
The GOP is dead.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Why does this day and age remind me so much of the fall of the Roman empire? The amount of mirror images is amazing.
I can close my eyes and picture Obama along with Pelosi, Reed, Powell, Murta, Edwards, Gore and the rest dressed in white robes reveling in unrestrained debauchery while the empire crumbles around them. Perverting the law because they can. believing themselves to be the epitome of perfection, while turning loyal citizens into slaves to the state.
Obama as a modern day Caligula? It is really not that far of a stretch. Caligula did his best to further the power of the state. He was fair at first until the power got to him although with His Holiness the power has already got to him. It did not end well for Caligula and I believe the same for Obama. History has been extremely unkind to Caligula and so it will be to Der Fuhrer of Amerika.
I am just undecided as to whether it will be Michelle or Nancy Pelosi that will be married to a horse.

Because you’re insane?

Colin Powell (“Powell of Arabia”) is an agent of the Saudi petrochemical lobby. Any notion that he is a “patriot” should be tempered with that knowledge.
A week after he left office, former Sec. of State Colin Powell was personally presented with a brand new Jaguar by Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar. As Bandar once explained: “If the reputation then builds that the Saudis take care of friends when they leave office, you’d be surprised how much better friends you have who are just coming into office.”
There is a far greater threat than Muslim terrorists. It’s the Saudi petrochemical lobby. It is the Saudi petrochemical lobby that gives Muslim terrorists the legal, political, social and press cover they need to flourish on our shores unmolested. If the Saudi petrochemical lobby ever gets defanged, Debbie Schlussel will be the next United States Attorney General and Muslim terrorists will yearn for the good old days of Guantanamo.
Colin Powell is part and parcel of the Saudi petrochemical lobby. With that established, what does Powell’s endorsement of O’Bama tell you? (That’s a rhetorical question.)

Colin Powell is and always has been a sleaze.
He was the one who tried to orchestrate the cover up of the Mail Lai Massacre (He wrote the original “white wash” of what happened).
He is lucky he was not in jail.
Why doesn’t the media ever bring this up?

Who cares what Colin Powell thinks. He was the first to call forth a two state solution to divide Israel even before Bush and Ol Condi Rice. Both are traitors, and losers!
Funny, as in ha ha not peculiar sort of way, all the the liberal Black democrats used to curse him. What joke Powell supports Obama. They deserve each other. Gee, maybe they’ll stop cursing him now. With all that Obama groveling. No wonder he wanted to divide Israel.
