  • Obama Says His Presidential Library Will Be a ‘Hub for the Community’

    CHICAGO — Barack Obama has seen presidential libraries. Sometimes they are a monument to the past, he said, standing on stage in an auditorium on Wednesday; a record of accomplishments. “And a little bit of an ego trip,” he added. “‘See what I did.’” . . . “What we want this to be is the world’s premier institution for training young people in leadership to make a difference in their countries, in their communities and in the world,” he said.
  • Obama to unleash 'community organizers' on crime-filled cities

    The Department of Justice announced it will send millions of dollars to various community-activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and the police. But critics believe such policies will only fuel further unrest by funding many of the so-called “community organizers” responsible for creating anti-police sentiment in American cities. To spread awareness of the new campaign, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch toured Cincinnati Tuesday and identified the city as a model for how police departments around the country should operate. Until recently, Cincinnati operated under a “Collaborative Agreement” after a 2001 police shooting. The agreement...

    Social worker Tara Tisdale, who allegedly sold her clients' private information, was one of those fired from the Human Resources Administration. Call them anti-social workers. Nearly 140 employees from the city Human Resources Administration — the city’s welfare agency — have been axed or forced to resign over the last six years for crimes and misconduct, including an agent charged with keeping food stamps for herself and another who allegedly paid a client to tend to his ferret, according to new data obtained by The Post. The accused cheats included Shamalah Millington, 34, who allegedly concealed her husband’s income to...

    Any thinking person could have predicted this… unfortunately the Ferguson protestors don’t think. Rioting and looting in Ferguson has caused an exodus of businesses and jobs from the community. Well done Ferguson looters! You’ve managed to close K-Mart and Big Lots, and kill jobs in your community. You should be proud of your ‘protests’ for gangsta thug Michael Brown. Thanks to you, hundreds of working people in Ferguson will no longer have an income, and some wouldn’t even be able to afford Christmas presents. All because of your rioting and looting. You thugs must be so proud. Of course the...
  • Joining the military doesn’t make you a hero (Triple Bagger)

    Boston Globe ^ | 7 Dec 14 | Stephen Kinzer
    Who is a hero? In today’s America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...

    December 7th is a day that most Americans take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform as they look back on the Japanese surprise attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on that date in 1941. Not the Boston Globe which published an anti-military screed by columnist Stephen Kinzer on the 73rd anniversary of the attack entitled, Joining the Military Doesn’t Make You a Hero Kinzer decries American society in 2014 treating troopers and veterans as heroes. While Kinzer gives a perfunctory nod to soldiers who perform above and beyond...

    Who imagined that the Obama administration’s effort to make school lunches more nutritious (but less delicious) would encourage children to become little community organizers? The U.S. Agriculture Department has found an upside to all those “healthy” school lunches that students refuse to eat: It says schools can use the plate waste as a “learning opportunity” to turn young students into “civic-minded, community-conscious adults.” …

    Ferguson happens a few times every month. More often in the summer when tempers are hot and crowds of bored men and women fill the streets looking for something to do. Teenagers ransack stores. Small cities stretch their budgets in a bad economy to put as many cops as they can on the street. And then somewhere between the open fire hydrants, the stores that do most of their business in EBT cards and lottery tickets, the check cashing places and furniture rental outlets, something happens. And it happens a lot more often than you think. A crowd gathers. Fists...

    What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation (http://tinyurl.com/lkoqj9b).The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference.In one of the workshops, “Examining...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 24 Oct 2013 | Monica Showalter
    'The success of a revolution," V.I. Lenin declared at the first all-Russian conference of working women in 1918, "depends on how much women take part in it." And based on his writings, there was little doubt he believed this. Problem was, most Russian women weren't interested. Unlike what was going on elsewhere in Europe, where the suffrage movement was under way and the Industrial Revolution had drawn many women into the workforce, industry in Russia was in its infancy and the female population was mostly rural and illiterate. The focus was on family, not what Marxism could do for the...

    Youth United for Change members are used to rallying against injustices in public education. In July, group members took hold of a somewhat different cause when they traveled to Tallahassee, Fla., to protest alongside members of a Florida activist group against the controversial verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, and fight for passage of a package of bills called the Trayvon Martin Civil Rights Act. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator, was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges for the killing of the unarmed 17-year-old Martin. The bills, also called Trayvon’s Law, were developed by the Dream Defenders, an organization...

    "I can't believe that 50 years after the March on Washington, we're still fighting for equity in our schools," Anthony Newby, executive director of Neighborhoods Organizing for Change, tells MyFoxTwinCities.com. "We know that in more affluent districts, parents aren't tolerating this. In Minneapolis, where a majority of students are children of color, our kids don't get climate controlled classrooms. It's outrageous."

    MIAMI GARDENS – Library closures, treating the mentally ill and the state of the fire-rescue service took center stage Tuesday when Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez hosted a town hall meeting at the North Dade Regional Library to discuss his proposed $6.3 billion budget for the new fiscal year. “What are your priorities and what do we cut?” asked Marilyn Lieberman, a self-styled community activist. . . Linnea Pearson, a Florida International University professor and former teacher of Travon Martin’s brother Jahvaris Fulton, said one of the reasons Trayvon got into trouble was because he was suspended. “As an educator, one...

    Community activists hoping to convince Toad’s Place president and owner Brian Phelps to cancel the Ted Nugent concert scheduled for Tuesday stopped by the York Street rock club Wednesday night with petitions signed by 2,500 like-minded people. They can keep hoping — but on Wednesday, all they encountered was a locked door. .. Fair also said that if there is no dialogue and the show is not cancelled, peaceful protesters will turn out the evening of the show. “We’re making every effort at dialogue first,” said Williams. “I want to sit down and actually have a decent conversation with...

    The Obama administration on Monday kicked off its public education campaign to get the uninsured to sign up for health coverage, with a new call center and a revamped website intended as the market entry point for millions of new consumers. The administration also offers a Spanish language site at CuidadoDeSalud.gov. Consumers can also get information through a new 24-hour call center that offers services in 150 languages. Beginning October 1, the call center will help consumers complete applications and select insurance plans.

    Hundreds of pro-immigration goons stormed Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s home this past weekend. The mob brought megaphones and rallied on his front porch. And they hurled threats at his family. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The leftists dared the Secretary of State to come outside. Todd Starnes at Townhall reported: Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is calling for a criminal investigation after a huge mob of illegal alien supporters surrounded his private home Saturday and held a rally on his front porch. At least 200 members of Sunflower Community Action were bussed into Kobach’s Kansas City-area neighborhood on Saturday – to...

    I recently read the new biography of Trotsky by Oxford don Robert Service, published in 2009 by Pan Books. It is well-written and surprisingly interesting. The book does a great public service in describing the life of the actual Trotsky, whose previous “biographies” were little more than hagiographies written by his toady worshippers (people like Isaac Deutscher). The last time that I had taken any interest in Trotsky was when I was a teenager and had fleeting delusions of believing in “socialism.” Reading the new book as an adult and as an economist, I found it a useful opportunity to...

    The American Thinker ^ | July 21, 2012 | Robert Oscar Lopez
    President Obama's Roanoke speech was not really an insult to businessmen. No, in fact, it was far worse: it was a threat. Worse still, it was a threat rooted in a long and ugly racial history in the United States. Consider that Obama mentioned, early in his remarks, teachers and urban infrastructure like roads. When Obama says "you didn't build that," he is employing the rhetorical strategies of two subcultures that he remains closely involved with: (1) the urban Democratic political machines that often shake down both businesses and minorities using City Hall's power over permits, union jobs, fines, and...

    Obama’s ACORN operative in the White House Patrick Gaspard, a former Working Families Party associate, is helping shape domestic policy– Obama political advisor Patrick Gaspard holds the same White House position his Bush-era predecessor, Karl Rove, did. But before he was the White House political czar he worked in several far left organizations as activist and agitator. NLPC.org reported: One of the more disturbing aspects of the Obama-ACORN connection is that the White House political affairs director is one Patrick Gaspard. Gaspard doesn’t register on the media radar screen in the way that his immediate Bush-era predecessor, Karl Rove, did....
