Obama to NAACP: America is still racist because of slavery

Recently, an article from Washington Weekly News (WWN) claimed that in his speech to the NAACP convention on July 21, 2015, Obama called for the Confederate and the Gadsden flags to be banned. From the WWN article:

In a 45-minute speech, Obama called for reducing or eliminating mandatory minimum sentences, reviewing the use of the solitary confinement and banning of Confederate and Tea Party Flags on public property, among other things.

“Any system that allows us to turn a blind-eye to hopelessness and despair, that’s not a justice system, that’s an injustice system,” Obama said Tuesday. “Justice is not only the absence of oppression, it’s the absence of racist, divisive symbols in our public discourse.”

The Gadsden flag — a yellow flag with a rattlesnake above the words “Don’t Tread On Me” — is the symbol of the American Revolution for Independence. The contemporary Tea Party movement adopted that flag as their banner.

Gadsden flagWhile Washington Weekly News, by all indications, is a legitimate news site, that article carried a dateline of “Washington (ONN).” ONN is the satirical Onion News Network that publishes entirely made-up pseudo news that are believable precisely because they are plausible. In this case, given the anti-Confederate flag hysteria whipped up by the media and the Left, it seemed entirely plausible that Obama would propose that both the Confederate flag as well as the Gadsden flag be banned. But it is not true.

However, what Obama actually said in his speech to the NAACP bears our attention because he still insists that America is racist (albeit a more subtle racism), that Blacks in America are treated unfairly by the legal system and others, and that their lower achievements are due to the “legacy” of slavery (even though slavery ended 152 years ago).

Note: On January 1, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation — an executive order that, in a single stroke, changed the legal status, as recognized by the U.S. government, of 3 million slaves in designated areas of the Confederacy from “slave” to “free.” By June 1865, the Union Army controlled all of the Confederacy and had liberated all of the designated slaves.

Not once in his speech did Obama place the responsibility of Blacks’ life circumstances (low educational achievements, unemployment, crime, imprisonment, broken families) on Blacks themselves. And his solution for their problems is more spending, more welfare and bigger government, now called “investments in our communities.”

Booker T. Washington

Here are quotes from Obama’s NAACP speech, from the White House’s transcript:

“We made progress, but our work is not done.  By just about every measure, the life chances for black and Hispanic youth still lag far behind those of their white peers.  Our kids, America’s children, so often are isolated, without hope, less likely to graduate from high school, less likely to earn a college degree, less likely to be employed, less likely to have health insurance, less likely to own a home.

Part of this is a legacy of hundreds of years of slavery and segregation, and structural inequalities that compounded over generations.  (Applause.)  It did not happen by accident.  (Applause.)  Partly it’s a result of continuing, if sometimes more subtle, bigotry — whether in who gets called back for a job interview, or who gets suspended from school, or what neighborhood you are able to rent an apartment in….

There’s a long history of inequity in the criminal justice system in America…. [In too many cases, our criminal justice system ends up being a pipeline from underfunded, inadequate schools to overcrowded jails…..  African Americans and Latinos make up 30 percent of our population; they make up 60 percent of our inmates.  About one in every 35 African American men, one in every 88 Latino men is serving time right now.  Among white men, that number is one in 214.

The bottom line is that in too many places, black boys and black men, Latino boys and Latino men experience being treated differently under the law.  (Applause.) …A growing body of research shows that people of color are more likely to be stopped, frisked, questioned, charged, detained.  African Americans are more likely to be arrested.  They are more likely to be sentenced to more time for the same crime.  (Applause.)  And one of the consequences of this is, around one million fathers are behind bars.  Around one in nine African American kids has a parent in prison.

…we have to stand up to those who are determined to slash investments in our communities at any cost — cutting preschool programs, cutting job-training programs, cutting affordable housing programs, cutting community policing programs.

Companies that fund Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress, headed by a valiant Christian named David Daleiden, released a shocking undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood (PP) sells the body parts of aborted unborn children (like fetal livers) and has its physicians do unlawful partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. See “Planned Parenthood sells body parts of aborted human babies”.

Days later, a second sting video was released, showing another PP senior official, Dr. Mary Gatter, haggling over how much she would charge for the aborted baby body parts. See “Second Planned Parenthood sting video: use “less crunchy” abortion method to get intact body parts for sale” and also “Human baby body parts and tissue for sale“.

Here are 38 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood (source: The Daily Signal). Since abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business, this means the following ghoulish companies are directly funding the murder of innocent and defenseless human beings, as well as the sale of their body parts and organs:

  1. Adobe
  2. American Cancer Society
  3. American Express
  4. AT&T
  5. Avon
  6. Bank of America
  7. Bath & Body Works
  8. Ben & Jerry’s
  9. Clorox
  10. Converse
  11. Deutsche Bank
  12. Dockers
  13. Energizer
  14. Expedia
  15. ExxonMobil
  16. Fannie Mae
  17. Groupon
  18. Intuit
  19. Johnson & Johnson
  20. La Senza
  21. Levi Strauss
  22. Liberty Mutual
  23. Macy’s
  24. March of Dimes
  25. Microsoft
  26. Morgan Stanley
  27. Nike
  28. Oracle
  29. PepsiCo
  30. Pfizer
  31. Progressive (auto insurance)
  32. Starbucks
  33. Susan G. Komen
  34. Tostitos
  35. Unilever
  36. United Way
  37. Verizon
  38. Wells Fargo

The Daily Signal (TDS) originally listed 41 companies — a list obtained from Planned Parenthood’s website. After TDS first published the list, three companies — Xerox, Ford Motor Co., Coca-Cola — contacted TDS to say their inclusion on PP’s list was erroneous. They asked PP to remove them from its list. PP’s response was to delete the entire list from their website.

Below are some reaction to the two undercover videos.

1. The Good Guys:

2. The Bad Guys:

The following politicians and organizations are defending PP:

  • The Obama administration not only says the selling of aborted babies’ body parts is “ethical,” spokesman Josh Ernest said that Obama, who says he’s a Christian, will not defund Planned Parenthood. That means the evil POS is forcing you, me, and every taxpayer to fund this ghoulish practice, against our conscience.
  • Wannabe-president Hillary Clinton, who calls herself a Christian, on July 23, 2016, defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business, saying PP offers “important services.” Hillary also defended late-term or partial-birth abortions, which is illegal. (H/t FOTM’s MomOfIV)
  • House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who calls herself a Catholic Christian, instead of demanding an investigation of PP, wants the Obama administration to investigate the Center for Medical Progress who made the undercover videos.
  • Minnesota governor Mark Dayton refuses to investigate PP.
  • The New York Times also defends PP’s sale of aborted baby parts.
  •  A Rasmussen poll found that 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the sale of body organs from aborted babies for use in medical research. 54% oppose, and 22% are undecided. 43% favor the use of fetal tissue in medical research; 34% are opposed; 23% are not sure.

Obama badmouths Americans to foreign media, calling us crazy

The president of the United States is both head of government and head of state, unlike parliamentary systems where those offices are held by separate individuals. In the UK as an example, the prime minister as head of government is in charge of administering the affairs of government; the queen is head of state who, theoretically, does not actually rule or interfere with government and politics. But as head of state, she is the symbolic and ceremonial representative of the entire country.

So what does it say about a head of state who bashes his own country and people before foreigners? Whatever your age, do you remember an American president who had criticized Americans to foreigners?

Obama began his presidency with an “apologizing for America” world tour, an example of which was what he said to a crowd of some 2,000 French and German students on April 3, 2009, in Strasbourg, France, in which he called America arrogant, “dismissive” and “derisive” of Europe. You can hear and see for yourself by watching the news video on the Telegraph site (click here). Obama said:

“In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

The Telegraph‘s Toby Harnden observed at the time that Obama’s remarks in Strasbourg “went further than any United States president in history in criticising his own country’s action while standing on foreign soil.”

But what Obama recently said in an interview with the UK’s British Broadcasting Center (BBC) on July 24, 2015, ahead of his trip to East Africa, went beyond apologizing for America’s past deeds to bashing the American people today.

Obama BBC interview Julu 24, 2015

In an interview that ranged across international politics and foreign policy to domestic (within the U.S.) affairs, this is what a sitting American president said to a foreign media (from the BBC’s transcript of the interview).

BBC reporter Jon Sopel asked Obama about his “legacy” and “unfinished business.” Obama began, ominously, by rejecting Sopel’s characterization of him as a lame-duck “dead man walking” president in his last term of office. Instead Obama said he still has “a pretty long list” of things he wants to do. Top on his to-do list is gun control. Obama said:

“the issue of guns…is an area where if you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws. Even in the face of repeated mass killings.

And you know, if you look at the number of Americans killed since 9/11 by terrorism, it’s less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it’s in the tens of thousands. And for us not to be able to resolve that issue has been something that is distressing. But it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months.

Yes, you got it right: the President of the United States of America just called all Americans who believe in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution lacking in “common sense.”

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines “common sense” as “the basic level of practical knowledge and judgment that we all need to help us live in a reasonable and safe way.” The legal dictionary further defines “common sense” with the following synonyms:

acumen, astuteness, balanced judgment, calmness, clear thinking, composure, experienced view, good judgment, good sense, intuition, judgment, level-headedness, logic, mental poise, native reason, natural sagacity, ordinary judgment, ordinary sense, plain sense, plausibility, practical discernment, practical knowledge, practicality, presence of mind, prudence, rational faculty, rationality, reason, resourcefulness, sagacity, sapience, savoir faire, sensibleness, sobriety, solidity, sound sense, sound understanding, unbiased impulse, understanding, unemotional consideration, worldly wisdom

All of which means that to Obama, who is president of all Americans, millions of Americans are muddled in their thinking, over emotional, impractical, imprudent, unreasonable, unwise, senseless, illogical, biased, and just plain irrational. The thesaurus tells us that another word or synonym for “irrational” is crazy.

Trump threatens third-party run. Stalking horse for Hillary?

Riding a wave of popularity and polling high among conservatives, Donald Trump is now saying he may run as a third-party candidate next year.

On Wednesday, July 22, 2015, in a 40-min. interview with The Hill, complaining that the Republican National Committee (RNC) has not been supportive of him, Trump said the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the RNC is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

If Trump indeed runs as a third-party candidate, he will split the Republican/conservative vote and so ensure that the Democratic Party candidate will win.

Henry Makow warns:

Trump is allegedly leading the other GOP candidates by a large margin. He catapulted into the lead by pretending to champion ordinary Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration. Calling Mexicans “rapists” is a little extreme but he needed to get attention fast….

Trump was drafted to run in 2012 but they decided he wasn’t needed. Then as now, Trump tailored his position to co-opt the opposition. He is “Christian, pro-life, anti gay marriage and so for the death penalty especially for terrorists.”

“I’m a Protestant, I’m a Presbyterian,” he told the Christian Post. “And you know I’ve had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion.”

Here are the facts on Donald Trump’s politics:

1. A 2011 report by the Center for Responsive Politics showed that over two decades of US elections, Donald Trump made contributions to campaigns of both Republican Party and Democratic Party candidates. (Source: OpenSecrets.org)

However, Trump gave much more to the Democrats in the 2006 cycle: $5,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and $20,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, effectively buoying the election prospects of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, respectively. Just $1,000 of Trump’s money in the 2006 cycle went to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Beginning with the 2012 cycle, however, financial disclosures show that Trump has donated exclusively to Republican candidates and groups. (Politico)

2. Trump’s political party ID is all over the map (Wikipedia):

  • Republican (before 1999; 2009-2011; 2012-present)
  • Reform Party (1999-2001)
  • Democratic (2001-2009)
  • Independent (2011-2012)

Donald Trump with the Clintons

3. Trump’s support for Hillary Clinton (Politico):

  • Hillary received donations from both Trump and his son in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
  • Trump donated at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
  • In another sign of their closeness, Hillary had front-pew seating at Trump’s 2005 wedding to current wife Melania Knauss in Palm Beach, Florida.

4. Trump was pro-abortion before he became pro-life (The Federalist):

  • In 1999, Trump was pro-abort. He said on NBC’s Meet the Press that while he “cringe[s] to hear people debating the subject” of partial birth abortion he “still just believes in choice.”
  • For the last two decades, Trump has supported the most extreme of abortion advocates, by donating to high profile pro-choice Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer.
  • By 2010, 11 years later, when Trump considered a run for the White House for the first time, he suddenly changed his mind, saying he is and has been “pro-life.” How to explain the change? “As I’ve grown older, I’ve changed my views.” Some will give him a pass, arguing that he has matured in his views like Ronald Reagan once did. But Reagan wrote an entire book, making a reasoned case for his new belief. Trump just gave some rambling interviews.

5. Trump’s other flip-flops (The Federalist):

  • Trump stumped for universal healthcare in the early 2000s; now he opposes it.
  • Trump once called for an end to the War on Drugs; now he supports it.
  • Trump used to favor gun control; now he claims to be a life member of the NRA. In 2000, when he was flirting a presidential run as a Reform Party candidate, Trump wrote, “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. “

Whether Donald Trump is a political opportunist whose party identification and positions change with the wind, the fact is that, if he runs as a third party candidate in 2016, he will split the Republican-conservative vote, as seen in the following latest polling data (Wikipedia):

  • A survey conducted by The Economist/YouGov released July 9, 2015 is the first major nationwide poll to show Trump as the 2016 Republican presidential frontrunner.
  • A Suffolk/USA Today poll released July 14, 2015 showed a 17% support for Trump among Republican voters, with runner-up Jeb Bush picking up 14%.
  • A Washington Post-ABC News poll taken on July 16–19 showed Trump had 24% Republican support, over Scott Walker at 13%.

Do we really want a repeat of the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections when Ross Perot’s third-party candidacy helped elect and re-elect Bill Clinton?

Obama-supporter Gen. Wesley Clark: Disloyal Americans should be put in concentration camps

Scratch a Democrat, and a Hitler wannabe comes out.

Gen. Wesley Clark (ret.) is the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO (1997-2000) and a Democratic candidate for president in 2004 and 2008. He dropped out of the race in 2004 to endorse John Kerry, and did the same in 2008, endorsing, first, Hillary Clinton, then Barack Obama.

On July 17, 2015, in an interview with MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts about the shooting deaths of 4 Marines by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez at a Naval reserve center in Chatanooga, Tennessee, Clark spoke approvingly of the imprisonment of disloyal Americans in concentration camps during World War II, completely disregarding the fact that in 1988 Congress had apologized for the WWII internment of Japanese Americans and awarded survivors $20,000 each for the unlawful violation of their civil liberties.

Then Clark proceeded to propose that the same treatment be given disloyal Americans today. Clark said:

“We’ve got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning…. I do think on a national policy level we need to look at what self-radicalization means because we are at war with this group of terrorists. They do have an ideology. In WWII, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put them in a camp, they were prisoners of war.  So, if these people are radicalized and don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principle – fine, that’s their right.  It’s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict, and I think we’re going to have to increasingly get tough on this – not only in the United States but our allied nations like Britain and Germany and France – are going to have to look at their domestic law procedures.”

Keep in mind that today “disloyal Americans” are radical Muslims like naturalized U.S. citizen Abdulazeez, tomorrow “disloyal Americans” may mean conservatives and Christians. After all, the Obama administration already identifies us to be “extremists” and “terrorists.” See:
