    Former acting United States Deputy Secretary of State, Wendy Sherman suggested on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton lost in November in part because Barack Obama was the first African-American President. Wendy Sherman told the audience at the Aspen Ideas Festival, “There is no doubt that we just had eight years of an African-American president is not a factor in all that we are experiencing today.” “When we make a social change, when we make a decision to do something we have never done before, we then take two steps backwards at least.” “I believe in my bones, among the list, I...
  • Why Obama’s presidency didn’t lead to black progress

    NY Post Op-Ed ^ | 6-17-2017 | Jason Riley
    Since the 1960s, black leaders have placed a heavy emphasis on gaining political power, and Barack Obama’s presidency represented the apex of those efforts. The assumption — rarely challenged — is that black political clout must come before black social and economic advancement. But as Jason L. Riley argues in this excerpt from his new book, “False Black Power” (Templeton Press), political success has not been a major factor in the rise of racial and ethnic groups from poverty to prosperity...... Yet the socioeconomic progress that was supposed to follow in the wake of these political gains never materialized. During...

    Former President Barack Obama was named Thursday as the winner of the 2017 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award. The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation said Mr. Obama is being honored “for his enduring commitment to democratic ideals and elevating the standard of political courage in a new century.” Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late president, and her son, Jack Schlossberg, will present Mr. Obama with the award on May 7 in Boston. Mr. Obama said on Twitter that he is “humbled to be recognized by a family with a legacy of service.” The foundation said Mr. Obama’s presidency...

    As President Barack Obama's White House days run out, it's time for his obsequious courtiers in the liberal media to announce his glorious "legacy." On Dec. 7, CNN devoted a two-hour prime-time special to the Obama legacy. It was hosted by Fareed Zakaria, a journalist whom Obama had invited to the White House so he could soak in Zakaria's wisdom and expertise -- in other words, so he could flatter a journalist into giving him softball coverage. Mission accomplished. Just as it began nine years ago, Zakaria started by celebrating the president's race, the gauzy references to Kenya and Kansas...

    WASHINGTON — Weeks ago, on a kickoff call for the final stretch of the election with the Democratic National Committee’s Black Caucus, Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile seemed concerned about the amount of resources at her disposal to turn out the black vote. (snip) “Please, please, please,” she pleaded. “Just make sure you’re doing something that raises the level of visibility of our entire ticket. We need every voter, we need everyone.” Then, Black Caucus Chair Virgie Rollins followed up. Pleading with organizers to do everything they could to get the black vote out, she reflected on the recent past:...

    RUSH: It's a sad observation, folks. I'm telling you, a sad, sad observation but it's an observation that I don't think I'm alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don't care about the details. It seems like it's now axiomatic that there's going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons. Now, stop and think about this. Where are we here? We're in the United States of America. We are...

    It's all about him. Then again, anything is better than making it about her. “Vote for Hillary because it’s very exciting to think of electing her. She would be such a great president.” Oh. Sorry. Just kidding. If you’re looking for an argument to motivate Democrats to get out and vote, you don’t want to use the one offered above, because your objective is not to get everyone a) laughing at you; or b) groaning with disgust. As Democrats grow increasingly desperate amidst the dramatic shift in the polls toward Donald Trump, they have to offer some sort of rationale...

    An anti-white reign of Black Lives Matter terror consumed Milwaukee Saturday after a black cop shot a black, gun-wielding suspect for refusing to drop his weapon when lawfully commanded to do so. Gov. Scott Walker (R) activated Wisconsin's National Guard as a precaution but calm had apparently been restored Sunday. The officer who shot the suspect was African-American, police said. His name was not given but he was described as a 24-year-old who'd been with the police department for six years, the last three as an officer.

    What an Honest Discussion on Race Would Look Like And why Obama and the Left would avoid it like the plague. July 22, 2016 Jack Kerwick    On Thursday, July 14, Barack Obama held a nationally televised “town hall” meeting on American race relations—and, unsurprisingly, punted on that “honest” discussion of race that he and his ilk accuse the rest of us of deferring. A truly honest discussion of race, you see, threatens the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) or, alternately, Big Racism. A truly honest discussion of race would mention that for virtually every kind of crime, blacks are perpetrators in...

    President Obama cautioned Black Lives Matter activists against going too far, saying that attacks on police and overheated, irrational rhetoric undermine their cause. "Whenever those of us who are concerned about failures of the criminal justice system attack police, you are doing a disservice to the cause," Obama said in remarks to reporters in Spain, where he is traveling. "Any violence directed at police officers is a reprehensible crime and needs to be prosecuted," he said. Even rhetorically, if we paint police with a broad brush, or "say things that are stupid or imprudent," it risks losing ground for the...

    Is this the Dallas cop killer at a New Black Panthers march? In 2009 and 2010, lawyers working at the United States Justice Department warned top Obama political appointees and other Justice Department officials about the dangerous threats of New Black Panthers to kill police officers and other whites. I was one of those lawyers who delivered those warnings.Our warnings came in the context of the Voting Rights Act case I and other lawyers brought against the New Black Panthers on behalf of the United States in 2009, a case the Obama administration ultimately abandoned. Both top DOJ officials, including...

Be confident in your blackness." Obama also criticized people who are "successful and don’t realize they've been lucky."

    WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump thinks the United States will not see another black president for some time because Barack Obama has "set a very poor standard," the billionaire businessman, entertainer and Republican presidential candidate told ABC News on Sunday. Trump -- who has questioned whether Obama was born in the United States and was once sued by the Justice Department because the management of his apartment complexes allegedly discriminated against black tenants -- also thinks he'll win the black vote. Trump responded to a question on the show about a tweet he sent last year saying America would not see...

    As a declared presidential candidate, Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) should generate even bigger headlines when he addresses black audiences, as he has at Howard University and other venues. When he was executive of mainly Democratic Milwaukee County, Governor Scott Walker (R., Wis.) appealed to black voters; his reelection majorities consistently increased. These and other Republicans should ask black Americans for their votes from now through November 2016. They should do so by challenging blacks to ask themselves an honest question: “What, exactly, have you gained by handing Obama 95 percent of your votes in 2008 and 93 percent in...

    US President Barack Obama is due to take part in events celebrating the 50th anniversary of a landmark civil rights march in Selma, Alabama. He will deliver a speech to mark "Bloody Sunday" in March 1965, when security forces attacked demonstrators. His wife Michelle and about 100 members of Congress are also due to attend. Afterwards Mr Obama and his wife Michelle will join marchers in a recreation of a walk on a bridge that was severely repressed. Police beat and used tear gas on demonstrators at the foot of Edmund Pettus Bridge on 7 March, 1965.

    When politics becomes personal it can lose perspective.In an interview that was broadcast last night on 60 Minutes, retiring Oklahoma Republican Senator Tom Coburn proclaimed, “I’m proud of our country for electing Barack Obama.” Senator Coburn is to be admired for his years as a watchdog on the spending habits of Congress and bureaucrats in the federal government. While I was certainly well aware of Coburn’s friendship with Obama, which developed when they were in the Senate, I am nevertheless disappointed to hear that he is proud this country elected Barack Obama to the White House. Senator Coburn might very...

    WASHINGTON -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) blamed this weekend's killing of two NYPD officers on anti-police "propaganda," for which he said President Barack Obama bears some responsibility. "We've had four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police," said Giuliani during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday." "I don't care how you want to describe it -- that's what those protests are all about." Giuliani cited the nationwide protests against institutional racism and police brutality that followed the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York,...

    Most African American youths believe President Barack Obama is a "deadbeat" leader, says Paul McKinley, a member of Voices of the Ex-Offender, a grassroots group of former inmates. "Every time they question the president about the black community, he's apologetic or embarrassed. Half of the time, I would say 97 percent of the time, he doesn't even want to say the black community exists," McKinley said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "A lot of the young people are seeing this double standard that the president has." McKinley says black Americans have identified with the Democratic Party...

"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."
