John Burnett: Another black conservative liberals don’t want you to know

Today many eyes are focused on the gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia. New York, the largest city in the nation and the bastion of capitalism, will also have an election today for its new mayor, and it seems the Big Apple is poised to elect an indisputable Marxist/socialist. As Mr. Spock would say, “fascinating.”

But there’s another interesting race I believe deserves the nation’s attention, for Comptroller of New York City. Let me introduce you to Mr. John Burnett who, if elected, would oversee some $135 billion in pension assets for New York City’s current and retired government employees as the city’s chief money man.

Of course, you probably haven’t heard a word abut him, because he’s a black conservative Republican.

Burnett, 43, holds an undergraduate degree from New York University in Leadership and Management. He went on to earn an MBA from Cornell University while working at Merrill Lynch and McGraw Hill Financial.

Burnett has some serious professional chops, having held five financial-services industry licenses for financial adviser, portfolio management, state securities licensing, as well as the supervisory licenses to oversee financial advisors and portfolio managers. He’s worked at Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and other top-drawer financial houses.

Regardless of the outcome, John Burnett has a very stellar future ahead. He is one to watch. I wish him all the best, and I also wish New Yorkers will make the right decision at the polls today.


  1. I have a question. Why do all black Republicans look so clean, put together, intelligent and just plain normal? Why do all Dem blacks, with few exceptions, look like greasy, low lives? I think it is the immorality of Dems seeping out and showing up on their faces. That really works for the whites too, if you have ever notices the faces of Pelosi or Reed?

    • Tammy I find that to true of all democrats regardless of skin color. If the lack of morality does not come out in their appearance it most certainly will manifest it’s self in their words and actions.

      • Beauty, or for that matter, ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. Just as we should not base our opinions of the color of skin, we should not make judgement on how people look. Judge by their deeds.

    • Dem-Coms are cold, self-centered and evil. There is no way for them to hide it, unless you are Barack Hussein Obama and telling people to just look the other way.


    • Like LTC West, John Burnett was obviously brought up and has lived his life taking responsibility for himself and his own future, which meant not ending up on the Democrats plantation.

  3. Looks like a man that doesn’t feel the need to use the color of his skin to drive his accomplishments. How refreshing…and surely disconcerting for the democratic party. A confident and successful black man that doesn’t need the government to get ahead shakes the very foundations of what Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would have you believe.

  4. The Left hates the idea of people voting for black conservatives. It prevents them from slinging their favorite insult at those who don’t support their beloved Obama.

  5. Thanks, LTC West for sharing info with us about Conservative John Burnett.
    Voters in New York now need to get busy and share this too so America can have another Conservative serving Her!

  6. Thanks for posting this — the liberal media has buried any story about Burnett. He is the most qualified candidate for the job.

  7. The gimmedats will keep voting for obamacrats until they have everything free-fer-nothing and those of us who bust our butts to have anything have nothing left to give up for them.
