  • Does Obama Endorse This?

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Oct 16, 2011 | DANIEL HALPER
    The front page of Saturday's Washington Post featured a story titled "Obama looks to harness anti-Wall St. angst" directly below a picture of a wild-looking protester strangling a police officer with this caption: "A man affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street protests tackles a police officer during a march in New York. Police arrested 15 people during demonstrations Friday, but the movement gained a victory after a plan to clear people from a Manhattan park was halted."  This, it turns out, is an element of President Obama's reelection strategy. "President Obama and his team have decided to turn public anger at...

    As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. “I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.” Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members...

    The Dream Has Turned Into A NightmareIn a move to call upon White America's Guilt, President Obama made reference to the plight of American Slaves before their Emancipation during the Civil War. Obama proves once again that the presidential campaign rhetoric concerning moving beyond racism and bringing America together as a unified country was only teleprompter trash talk. He now invokes images of slavery to try and recapture America's Guilt and Pity for the poor half Black President who has lost the confidence of the American voter and is facing catastrophic Democrat losses in mid-term elections due to firing...
  • Dinesh D'Souza Talks about "The Roots of Obama's Rage

    Dakota Voice ^ | 10/1/10 | Bob Ellis
    Author Dinesh D’Souza has a new book out entitled The Roots of Obama’s Rage. In brief, the book is about Barack Obama’s youth and formative experiences that ideologically made him the man he is today. You may recall a recent column by D’Souza which provided just a teaser of what may be found in the book. This series of videos (below) made by D’Souza provide some glimpses of what you’ll find in the book. Like D’Souza, Obama lived a great deal of his life off the U.S. mainland–even in foreign countries. D’Souza grew up in India and came to the...

    I imagine by now that most people here have had a chance to listen to the statement made by Charles Sherrod (as displayed in a YouTube video, "Charles Sherrod And His Uncle Toms" that "we must stop the white man and his Uncle Toms from stealing our elections." This statement brings several thoughts to mind, namely: Who made Charles Sherrod the decider for who is and isn't an uncle tom? Would he have the right to say that blacks must adhere to a certain political worldview or otherwise they are an uncle tom? How could Charles Sherrod's words help to...

    Arizona Daily Star ^ | 07/24/2010 | Cathalena E. Burch
    Elton John didn't mince words in slamming his fellow musicians for boycotting Arizona over the controversial SB 1070 immigration law. From the stage at his sold-out Tucson Arena concert Thursday night, John savored a few choice, not-so-family-friendly words: "We are all very pleased to be playing in Arizona. I have read that some of the artists won't come here. They are (expletive)wits! Let's face it: I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever. So what's the (expletive) with these people?" John has never been one to cave into political pressure from his...

    How can a former constitutional law professor, an attorney general and an iconic organization get it so wrong on civil rights? When you look at it, it is hard to tell if the White House, the Department of Justice and the NAACP are merely a collective sign of the times or the reasons why the times are sadly changing. Over the course of the past week, all three iconic institutions have corrupted the legacy of civil rights activism in America, using their efforts to support legal initiatives that pervert the legacy of black civil rights leaders with self-serving and misguided...

    HONOLULU (KHNL) - A memorial service for President-elect Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, will be held at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu Friday. The service, which is open to the public, will begin at 5:00 p.m. but the Obama family will not be in attendance. Obama's campaign says the president-elect will visit Hawaii in December to honor his grandmother, who helped raise him in Honolulu and died two nights before the election. Campaign officials have not specified when Obama will make the trip. Dunham's husband, Stanley Dunham, who fought in World War II, was buried...

    Oh my, I do believe we're starting to get evidence that Barack Obama's definition of "change" is painfully synonymous with "politics as usual." Recently, in an apparent effort to move to the political center, Obama's had some convenient changes of heart. He's rejected public financing for his general election campaign, despite previously and frequently promising he wouldn't. Obama has decided to support the new FISA bill, which is certainly playing againt his Most-Lefty-U.S.-Senator type. BUt thankfully, there's one Democrat/lefty principle Obama would never betray - crying "Racism!" without justification: "We know what kind of campaign [the REpublicans are] going to...

    Obama, speaking to a group of supporters in San Francisco, CA. , recently said: "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment...

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | April 9, 2008 | John Fleck
    An invitation to a "diversity workshop" sent to Sandia Labs employees last week by labs management has drawn complaints because of its suggestion that white people are inherently racist. "Recent studies suggest whites' lack of awareness about other cultures has to do with whites' commitment to maintaining higher social status, or 'white privilege,' '' the invitation said. It also said whites "are likely to persist in racist behaviors unless persuaded to abolish the privileges they receive as members of the white race." Sandia staff received a dozen calls from employees upset about the wording, labs spokesman Michael Padilla said. He...

    The New York Observer ^ | March 24, 2008 | Steve Kornacki
    Maybe, just maybe, it’s now worth at least asking whether Hillary Clinton might wind up as the Democratic candidate for vice president. When the chatter about a Democratic “dream ticket” began last year, it was easy to dismiss. Either Clinton or Obama would win a clear victory in the primaries and, after what inevitably would be a contentious campaign, each would want as little to do with the other as possible. Clinton, if she emerged victorious, would instead choose some kind of national security graybeard to her political right, a retired general perhaps, or maybe even a Republican. Likewise, Obama...

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | March 24, 2008 | Gregory Rodriguez
    In some ways, Barack Obama's speech on race last week was as brilliant as it was nuanced. But for all its rhetorical beauty, it was also an enormous step backward and, in the end, a rather self-serving call for more discussion about racial grievance in a country that has already done way too much talking. Until last week, so much of Obama's appeal lay in the fact that he was not asking us to talk about the racial divide. Instead, he offered himself as a living and breathing symbol of racial reconciliation; his very origins pointed to the goal of...

    When Democrats contemplate the apocalypse these days, they have visions of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton slugging it out à la Ted Kennedy and Jimmy Carter at the 1980 convention. The campaign's current trajectory is, in fact, alarmingly similar to the one that produced that disastrous affair. Back then, Carter had built up a delegate lead with early wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, and several Southern states. But, as the primary season dragged on, Kennedy began pocketing big states and gaining momentum. Once all the voting ended and Kennedy came up short, he eyed the New York convention as a...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Barack Obama's speech last week, hastily prepared to extinguish the firestorm over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, won critical praise for style and substance but failed politically. By elevating the question of race in America, the front-running Democratic presidential candidate has deepened the dilemma created by his campaign's success against the party establishment's anointed choice, Hillary Clinton. In rejecting the racist views of his longtime spiritual mentor but not disowning him, Obama has unwittingly enhanced his image as the African-American candidate -- not just a remarkable candidate who happens to be black. That poses a racial dilemma for...

    It is a tribute to Hillary Clinton that even though, rationally, political soothsayers think she can no longer win, irrationally, they wonder how she will pull it off. It's impossible to imagine The Terminator, as a former aide calls her, giving up. Unless every circuit is out, she'll regenerate enough to claw her way out of the grave, crawl through the Rezko Memorial Lawn and up Obama's wall, hurl her torso into the house and brutally haunt his dreams. "It's like one of those movies where you think you know the end, but then you watch with your fingers over...

    Even though Barack Obama has "moved on" from the messy association that he has recently been forced to explain to man who had been his pastor for 20 years, it is clear - the voters haven't. There are legitimate questions being raised about a relationship that spans a generation and the beliefs of a man who has on multiple dozens of occasions issued some of the most vitriolic, bigoted, racism imaginable in America today. No doubt one of the most infamous video moments recently unearthed was Jeremiah Wright's use of what he cleverly believed to be a cute play on...

    WASHINGTON -It is already easy to imagine the Republican attack ads against Barack Obama. They open with video of his wife, Michelle, saying she was proud of America "for the first time in my adult lifetime" because of her husband's presidential candidacy. Cut to the Illinois Senator explaining that he doesn't wear an American flag lapel pin because it is a "substitute for true patriotism." Then flash a clip of Obama explaining that his Caucasian grandmother was a "typical white person" because she uttered racial epithets and was afraid of black people. Finally, the coup de grace, pictures of Obama's...

    Hillary Clinton's strategists are delighted at what they consider Barack Obama's latest stumble in the hypersensitive world of racial politics. Obama is drawing a new round of criticism for his comments on a Philadelphia radio sports program yesterday in which he said his grandmother is a "typical white person" who has fears about black men. He was attempting to explain a portion of his speech on race earlier this week—specifically, the statement that his white grandmother gets nervous when a black man approaches her on the street. Obama told the radio host, "The point I was making was not that...
