  • WILLIE BROWN: ONLY PLACE OBAMA WELL-RECEIVED IS HIS 'BLACK BASE'

    Breitbart ^ | October 8 2014 | WYNTON HALL
    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown told the New York Times that the best and only place for Democrats to deploy President Barack Obama heading into the midterm elections is with black voters. "I'd have Obama on an evangelistic schedule of black churches all over the country," said Brown. "I think he really should go to the black base. I don't think there's any other place I would trust he wouldn't create an adverse reaction rather than a positive reaction."
  • In Secret Service, Some Blacks See a Flawed Shield for the President

    WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in...

    Clearly, no amount of unprecedented unlawful power-grabs, narcissistic behavior, blatant lies, and ignoring of the Constitution will sway the mainstream media and the Democrats from their loyalty to Obama. Why? The answer is that Obama is black, which makes him their ultimate weapon of mass destruction – able to nuke traditional America. Obama's mission is to cram his radical socialist/progressive dream for America down our throats. Obama’s reign of terror is but a mere preview of things to come if the MSM and Democrats are successful in duping Americans into handing Hillary Clinton the keys to the Oval Office. Just...

    Obama’s African-American “groupies” run the gamut. (I have mentioned the white Obama-Groupies in other articles.) From the higher educated black individual who is a well employed three-piece suit, down to the baby mama with a 6th grade public school education. So what do these polar opposites have in common? And why would the educated, and the severely under-educated have a meeting of minds? How is that possible? Answer, it’s a cohort union united under Obama; its black for black’s sake. I am convinced Obama worship is a mental disorder, because it seems to bring out the worst in people. This...

    As Obama kicks off his “You're Too Stupid to Understand” campaign tour, I’d like to make the following observation as a public service reminder: It's not that Obama started believing his press clippings; it's that Obama never for a moment doubted his press clippings. Generally, buying into the fables that the press tells about you-- both good and bad-- is a loser's proposition, especially in politics. Because when reality bumps up against the storyline, the storyline is unsustainable. The government lied about Vietnam. Bill Clinton lied about the Bible: oral sex, it turns out, is still sex. We’re losing the...

    These results from Rasmussen poll done March 2-3 have got to be disconcerting for Obama. Obama’s voter base is unhappy with their life under Obama. President Obama is going to have to do a whole lot more than promise to make things better for young blacks under his new “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, because 71 percent of voters in a new poll say life for the group is the same or worse than before he came into office. Rasmussen Reports reveals that just 16 percent of likely voters believe life for young blacks has improved since Obama’s 2008 election, while...

    For much of Barack Obama’s presidency, he has sought to avoid being defined by his race or gender, often emphasizing that he is the leader of all Americans. On Thursday, Mr. Obama will use the power of his office to focus on helping young black men succeed. Stymied by Congress on many of the economic policies he considers central to the lives of blacks, Mr. Obama is seeking to prod nonprofit foundations, business groups and civic leaders to provide more opportunities for a struggling part of the American family. His new “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative is aimed at finding ways...

The initiative, which will offer “every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up...

It couldn’t possibly be his failed economic policies, the fact that he lied to Americans for years about Obamacare or his destructive foreign policy. No, it’s racism. Bloomberg reported: President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said...

    As President Obama stumbles and fumbles his way through his second term, his mistakes are impossible to overlook. From his handling of the turmoil in the Middle East to his failed economic policies to the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, it has been a year of train wrecks for the President. Opponents of President Obama have plenty of ammunition to use as they criticize his second term agenda. Almost all of these critics have focused their attention on Obama’s policies, not his race. Despite the facts, the President’s defenders continually use the race card to invalidate criticism from his opponents. The...

    There is a sea change occurring in America fifty years after MLK Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. This paradigm shift is spreading with the growing realization among our citizens that Black America (including our president) seems to hate Non-Black America. Temper this sweeping statement with the fact that blacks in America may genuinely like non-black individuals, just as whites in 1850 who believed blacks were a lower form of life still knew individual black men they respected for their particular talents and/or character. However, if we take specific individual knowledge out of the equation, on the whole, being black...

    Cornel West said that under President Barack Obama there has been an increase in what he called the "new Jim Crow" and claimed his presidency has thus been a failure. Appearing in a Monday interview on Al Jazeera America's Talk to Al Jazeera with David Shuster, West said 2.5 million new prisoners have been incarcerated while Obama has been in office mostly "because of soft drugs" and the disparity in "crack cocaine versus regular cocaine" users. West referred to this phenomenon as the "new Jim Crow" because he said minority communities and the poor are disproportionately impacted.

    A new poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal reveals that public perceptions about race relations in America have taken a devastating hit since the election of Barack Obama. At the beginning of the president’s first term, 79 percent of whites and 63 percent of blacks had a positive view of American race relations. Those numbers have plummeted to 52 percent and 38 percent, respectively. Meanwhile, 45 percent of whites now consider race relations fairly or very bad, compared with 20 percent in 2009, and the negative views held by black Americans has jumped from 30 percent to...

    the last half-decade has proved far worse for black and Hispanic families than for white families when it comes to wealth — as measured by assets, like cash savings, homes and retirement accounts, minus debts, like mortgages and credit card balances — white families have far outpaced black and Hispanic ones. Before the recession, non-Hispanic white families, on average, were about four times as wealthy as nonwhite families, according to the Urban Institute’s analysis of Federal Reserve data. By 2010, whites were about six times as wealthy. The dollar value of that gap has grown, as well. By the most...

Recently some Black Americans have been calling into black talk radio shows like “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton, complaining immigration is not an important issue to them.

From whom does a 9-year-old hear that Obama's opponent is a racist who, to quote the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, wants "to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws"? Brandon's father might alert his son to a recent...

    Former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, America's first elected black governor, has his own reservations about America's first black president, Barack Obama. Wilder, an emphatic Obama supporter in 2008, said his fellow Democrat should have focused more on creating jobs during his first term and faulted the president for failing to keep his campaign promise to bridge the partisan gap in Washington. "I think he's governed left of center and didn't focus on jobs and economic recovery," Wilder told The Washington Examiner. But will Wilder still vote for Obama on Tuesday in a battleground state Obama is desperate to win again?...

    After his meteoric ascent to the top of the American political arena in the country’s history, we are now in the midst of witnessing one of the most stunning collapses of any man ever to hold the office of President of the United States. Over the past few weeks we have begun to see the ultimate unraveling of support for the president, with women and youth fleeing from his side. But what is even more surprising and perhaps unimaginable to the president and his faithful media cult is that he is now also losing members of his normally deemed “untouchable”...

    Now, Powell wants us to believe that despite endorsing Obama twice, he is still a “moderate Republican”. Given the fact that even moderate Democrats have bailed on Obama; a former highly touted Obama cheerleader, former Rep. Artur Davis, has abandoned him; the mainstream media, once highly protective of their beloved one, have begun to turn on him; and the fact that the black community has fared even worse than others in this atrocious Obama economy, one would think that any rational person would realize that Obama must go. I will say right now exactly what I said in 2008...

    WHEN African-Americans go to the polls next week, they are likely to support Barack Obama at a level approaching the 95 percent share of the black vote he received in 2008. As well they should, given the symbolic exceptionalism of his presidency and the modern Republican Party’s utter disregard for economic justice, civil rights and the social safety net. But for those who had seen in President Obama’s election the culmination of four centuries of black hopes and aspirations and the realization of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of a “beloved community,” the last four years must...

    RICHMOND, Va. — Four years ago, there were doubts, then hope, then worry, work and elation. Today, as African American voters look at electing the first black president to a second term, there is support tinged with disappointment and defensiveness. There are worries about President Obama's support for gay marriage, worries about the economy and worries about life under a Mitt Romney administration. There are fewer thoughts about making historic strides and quieter worries about history slipping away.

    <p>Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama.</p> <p>Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he's black? If race is just one factor in blacks' support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks' support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, because he's white?</p>

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Dexter Hady, a black landscaper here, is exactly the kind of Obama supporter who could have slipped through the cracks this year. He recently moved and, not being as excited about the coming election as he was about the 2008 campaign, neglected to update his voter registration. By chance, a volunteer for the Obama campaign stopped Mr. Hady outside of the Wake County Courthouse here recently and asked him if he was prepared to vote. Mr. Hady said no, and went on to explain: “I can say I was definitely more excited to vote for Obama last...

    Remember that time Rep. Paul Ryan called Dionne Davenport to chat? Stacey Dash breaks the news to Alicia Silverstone that it’s Paul Ryan on the line.Stacey Dash, the actress best-known for playing Dionne in “Clueless,” announced her support for Mitt Romney in this utterly innocuous tweet last week. After that, her replies predictably and sadly erupted in abuse, with accusations that the black actress was betraying her race, was a “house negro,” “oreo,” and worse. You know, because tolerance. Dash, who most recently starred in the VH1 drama “Single Ladies,” said she was “shocked and saddened” by the response in...

    Unhappy with President Barack Obama‘s support of same-sex marriage, a group of African-American faith leaders have announced a campaign aimed at stripping 25 percent of the black vote that went to Obama in 2008 (95 percent). The newly formed nonprofit group, God Said, will begin targeting voters in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida with television and radio advertising, as well as a grassroots campaign to encourage people to consider the gospel when they enter the voting booth. “The black community is among the most religious in America and we are offended that President Obama has announced his support...

    Here in Chicago, I regularly meet with a group of friends who call themselves “The Think Squad”; these are men and women who are prominent members of the black community in Hyde Park and the City’s south side. None of them supported Barack Obama’s presidential bid in 2008 but most begrudgingly voted for him because they freely admit race-pride was their motivating factor. These people knew Obama when he was a state senator and saw him do absolutely nothing for blacks in Chicago back then…and they similarly saw Obama do nothing for blacks (or any of his constituents in general)...
