  • Still No Statement from White House on First Islamic Terrorist Beheading in U.S.

    It’s been 48 hours since Jah’Keem Yisrael — AKA Alton Noel — perpetrated a horrific terrorist attack on 54 year old co-worker Colleen Hufford, stabbing her repeatedly and then sawing her head off with a knife, and we have yet to hear any acknowledgment from President Obama of this worrisome incident. Why not? All the elements of an Islamic act of terror are present: the savagery,the shouting of Islamic verses during the act, the stated determination to carry out jihad, and a fanatical belief in Islam that, in his mind, justified everything. From a political standpoint, it’s a bad idea...

    There’s much to be said about Ms. Noonan’s column “The Unwisdom of Barack Obama” in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal. For starters, she writes it as the all-wise observer from afar who’s known all along that Big Guy was in waaaaay over his head; knew that he actually Peter Principled out somewhere between Harvard Law and Chicago community organizer.To read Saturday’s column, you might think that Peggy has seen through Barack Hussein Obama’s veneer from the start.

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s chickens are coming home to roost. Reuters reported this story. Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s daughter Jeri Wright was convicted on all counts of laundering thousands of dollars from a state grant slated for a Chicago job training program. She stole from the taxpayers and from the poor people who need the job training. Then she lied about it. I guess she didn’t learn anything from her father’s great preaching on that “God Damn America” and “Jewish lawyers”. Who would have thought that his comparing Jews of Jesus’ time to “Klansmen” and describing Jesus as a racial provocateur wouldn’t...

    The daughter of President Barack Obama's former pastor was convicted on Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a state grant for a Chicago-area job-training program, federal prosecutors said. A federal jury took less than two hours to find Jeri Wright, 48, the daughter of Jeremiah Wright, guilty on all counts for her part in a fraud scheme led by a former suburban police chief and the chief's husband, according to the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of Illinois in Springfield. The $1.25 million state grant was for a not-for-profit work and education program called We Are Our...

    No one gasped Wednesday night at St. James United Methodist Church as the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. spoke. No one in the packed multiracial audience got up in disgust and walked out. But people did laugh a lot, applaud a great deal and gave the controversial pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago a standing ovation after his hour-long lecture titled “Another World is Possible.” Wright made headlines in 2008 for sermons viewed as critical of America when he was presidential candidate Barack Obama’s longtime minister. Obama denounced Wright, left the church and went on to...

    [1]Back in 1962, Robert Gover published a novel called the One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding [2] whose premise Amazon describes this way: “A college sophomore spends a weekend with a pretty 14-year-old black prostitute under the manly misapprehension that she has invited him because she finds him irresistible.”I remember reading it as an undergraduate and finding it mildly amusing. Of course, inflation being what it is, it’s hard to write a book about a piddling hundred dollar misunderstanding anymore. But somehow the novel came to mind today when reading one of my favorite websites — The College Fix [3]. The...

Jeri Wright said she would "definitely" appeal the verdict in U.S. District Court, which found her guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury. "I didn't do anything," Wright, 48, of Hazel Crest, said as she left the Springfield courtroom.

    Curiously sandwiched between Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month, and with his approval rating diving like the mercury in thermometers, Barack Obama remarked, “There’s no doubt that there’s [sic] some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” For the sake of argument, let’s assume Obama is correct. Even so, he is referencing an intractable and small minority, all the while forgetting he was able to achieve the presidency — twice. The skin-deep excuse he is using to insulate himself against justly deserved criticism is especially unconvincing. Obama then...

    The Chicago Teachers Union wants a louder voice in the political world — and to kick off that campaign, it’s turning to a public figure every bit as combative as the union itself: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Wright, of course, is the Chicago pastor who was a spiritual mentor to Barack Obama until the 2008 presidential campaign. Then a video surfaced of Wright shouting from the pulpit, “God damn America.” Then Wright suggested the U.S. had committed terrorism and thus brought the Sept. 11 attacks on itself. Then he opined that the government had created AIDS to kill African-Americans. Obama...

    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...

    President Barack Obama is not an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church, and he almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But away from the public eye, advisers say, the president has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality that has served as a grounding mechanism during turbulent times, when the obstacles to governing a deeply divided nation seem nearly insurmountable. Every year on Aug. 4, the president's birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the most...

    As we roll into the final presidential debate, the polls show a very tight race. One thing they don't show, however, is how race is a factor in the election. By my estimate, you have to build in a three- to five-point slip from the poll numbers for any black candidate on election day. To overcome the slip, you need to pump up the black vote by equal measure. And that's not easy, because brothers and sisters aren't among the top turnout groups. In 2008, Barack Obama was able to compensate for the slip and then some. You would have...

    ...Historians may remember Obama as the nation’s first black president, but he’s also a religious pioneer. He’s not only changed people’s perception of who can be president, some scholars and pastors say, but he’s also expanding the definition of who can be a Christian by challenging the religious right’s domination of the national stage. Obama is a progressive Christian who blends the emotional fire of the African-American church, the ecumenical outlook of contemporary Protestantism, and the activism of the Social Gospel, a late 19th-century movement whose leaders faulted American churches for focusing too much on personal salvation while ignoring the...

Jeremiah Wright; the controversial leftist Catholic priest Father Michael Pfleger; and the brother of Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

    On the heels of an absolutely miserable debate performance… yet another problem for the Obama campaign. There's another tape. This time with Jeremiah Wright. And a very curious video. "Grace and peace be unto you," begins Wright, smiling, his voice calm and low. It's June 23, 2007 -- a mere 18 days after the now infamous Obama speech at Hampton University that the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report titled as "Obama's Other Race Speech." An angry, racially divisive speech in which Obama effortlessly slides into a Southern accent, shouting "The people down in New Orleans they [the Bush administration...

    As a young single woman, Michelle Robinson was a fixture in the home of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who along with Rev. Jeremiah Wright “arranged” her marriage to Barack Obama, according to sources in Chicago who know the couple. Jackson’s daughter, Santita, is still one of Michelle’s best friends. “It all relates back to Trinity and to the Jesse Jackson orbit of blacks here in Chicago who gave Obama legitimacy and helped him establish his identity as a black man,” Robyn explained. “The political left wanted to push a black to the presidency, and the key operatives in the...
  • Obama campaign: Video touted on Drudge Report a 'desperate attack'

    The Obama campaign called a video touted by conservative news aggregator Drudge Report as a potentially explosive development in the election a "transparent attempt to change the subject" from Mitt Romney's comments, made by his "allies." “In a transparent attempt to change the subject from his comments attacking half of the American people, Mitt Romney’s allies recirculated video of a 2007 event that was open to and extensively covered by the press at the time. The only thing shocking about this is that they apparently think it’s wrong to suggest that we should help returning veterans, children leaving foster care...

    'Matchmaker' Rev. Jeremiah Wright 'provided cover for gays' After nearly four years in office, many Americans still express frustration that much about Barack Obama remains a mystery as establishment media remain incurious about the Democratic president, while seemingly ready to dispatch crack investigative teams at a moment’s notice to probe into the personal lives of Republican figures such as Sarah Palin. Largely ignored in 2008 was research by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on contacts developed with members of the church Obama attended for two decades, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. This is the first of a series...

    Place your bets as to what’s on this tape that drops tonight, but here’s what I know: * tape is from 2006, before Barack Obama seriously decided to run for President in 2008 * Reverend Jeremiah Wright is in the audience (so good chance it’s Chicago) * “We don’t need to build more highways in the suburbs”…is a quote Drudge says is in the video. This sounds like a Rainbow Push sort of speech. * Drudge has the picture up where he’s shouting angrily…if this is from the Hannity video then it might be at a Rainbow Push meeting because...

    Democrats have run a number on Republicans. They have skillfully captured certain words in the American lexicon and redefined them, applying Democrat-themed meanings for the specific purpose of cowing Republicans into silence and submission. I have watched the escalation of this vocabulary abuse for almost a decade, and I am sorry to say, this particular Democrat scheme is working. Republicans seem afraid to speak the unvarnished truth about Democrat party leaders for fear of reprisals in the mainstream media, an organization that has repeatedly proved that it is indisputably in the tank for Barack Obama. What are Republicans afraid to...
