Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Dear Dumbphuck, when Bush cut taxes he didn't cut spending, he then passed Medicare part D and kicked off a couple wars, throw in a complete economic meltdown and subsuequent revenue losses and that is why we have the deficits we have today.

Hope this clears things up for you morons who want to cut taxes when we have mountains of debt and deficit spending leftover from the Bush years.

Obama Inherits & Normalizes the Arrogance, and Impunity of Tricky Dick Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Both B,When Republican presidents Nixon, Reagan and Bush waged secret wars based on mountains of lies and deceit, they were nearly impeached, but in each case Democrats in control of Congress could not pull the trigger. As a result, the Obama White House basks in a presidential culture of murderous arrogance and lawless impunity.

This White House openly brags about its “Terror Tuesday” meetings in which US special forces and drones have been dispatched to and from dozens of undisclosed countries to kidnap, torture or murder thousands of people, in the case of drone strikes mostly innocents, to the cheers and jokes of cruise missile liberals like Ed Schulz and Bill Maher, who calls Obama the “black ninja president.” The potent symbol of a black face in that high place has normalized the conduct of lawless aggressive war and secretive state murder among parts of the population which had no trouble calling a crime a crime when committed by a white Republican. In that sense, the First Black President is a little bit unlike, but mostly very much like his nefarious predecessors.

It's worth noting that in the debates between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, kill-at-will drone wars, the militarization of Africa, Wall Street's immunity from prosecution, and the push to privatize and charterize public education were points upon which both candidates were in complete agreement. But if Mitt Romney were president today wouldn't many more of us be in the street about these things? Black apologists, as Davey D notes, try to shut criticism of this president down in the misguided name of black unity, and some white activists stay home because they don't want to be seen as racist whites hating on the black president.

A Facebook friend in Atlanta remarked last week that whenever George Bush was rumored coming to town, his inbox would be full of emergency mobilization notices. But with the current War President about to visit, he said, it looked like his only correspondent might be the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

It's going to be a long, long four more years.

Just Like Crack in the 80s, the Police State Thrives on Gun Hysteria
African American politicians and activists implored President Obama and others in authority to “do something” about gun violence in inner cities. Be careful what you ask for. The current gun hysteria will serve as an excuse to expand the police state, through a new wave of “mandatory minimum sentences and adoption of New York-type stop-and-frisk policies.”

The presence of guns in Black inner cities is sufficient excuse to create a Constitution-free zone.”

From the moment it became known that 20 suburban, mostly white children had been massacred by a young white man in Connecticut, it was inevitable that Black America would pay the price. The nation’s reflexive response to crime and domestic mayhem – real or imagined, and regardless of the actual race of the perpetrators – is always to punish Black people. Whenever the symptoms of the national sickness – America’s endemic violence and alienation – become catastrophically acute, as in Newtown, the standard treatment is mass Black incarceration, by which huge proportions of the Black male population are expelled from the social body like foreign organisms.

The madness in a well-off town in Connecticut had nothing to do with Black inner city violence, which is overwhelmingly rooted in the absence of a legitimate economy, and a lack of social justice – and requires an economic and social justice response. But America is preprogrammed to treat violence as a Black phenomenon. As could be expected, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel – President Obama’s former chief of staff – proposed mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes. It is a huge step backward. Mandatory minimum sentences have been largely responsible for making the United States home to one out of every four prison inmates in the world, and many states have been backing away from the practice. Opposition to mandatory minimums has historically been strongest in Black America. However, in the current gun hysteria, Black activists and politicians have talked themselves into a corner. When President Obama shed tears over the tragedy in Connecticut, African Americans demanded that he show similar concern for young Black victims of gunfire. It was demanded that “do something.”

“America is preprogrammed to treat violence as a Black phenomenon.”

Think about this. If they raise the minimum wage most union contracts are set to the minimum wage. So union wages go up. However the more important part is to hire qualified people businesses will have to raise the starting salaries the $1.50 to keep the pay above minimum wage. Here is the point. If everybody earns more money the government gets more money in income, SSI, Medicaid, and medicare taxes. However that money doesn't just doesn't poof out of nowhere so where is all that money going to come from? No one seems to want to answer that.

So now you are taxing people more, trying to raise the amount people have to pay their workers, and putting massive new regulations on them. Just where do you libtards think all this money is going to come from???

The Obama Administrations Dick Cheney Moment

Under no circumstance should members of the executive branch be allowed to condemn American citizens to death, even in times of 'war' without the review of an impartial judge.”

In an interview in 2007 Senator Obama (D-IL) said,“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation… I reject the Bush Administration's claim that the President has plenary authority under the Constitution to detain U.S. citizens without charges as unlawful enemy combatants.” In 2013 Americans are facing a president with a different mindset.

A recently leaked White Paper is providing insight into the legal justifications for the Obama administration’s “targeted killing” program. The paper asserts that “high-level” government officials can “…use lethal force in a foreign country…against a U.S. citizen who is a senior operational leader of al-Qa’ida or an associated force…actively engaged in planning operations to kill Americans.” This legal framework also explains how lethal force can be used even if the “high-level” government officials do not have “…clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future.”

In September 2011 the administration used drone strikes to kill alleged al-Qaida operatives Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan. Al-Awlaki’s 16-year old son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was also killed by a drone strike. All three were U.S. citizens and none of them had been indicted by the U.S. government for any crimes. According to The Guardian,“…the drone program now is run out of the White House, where (John) Brennan, the president's most trusted counter-terror adviser, helps Obama pick the targets.”

The rational behind the administration’s “assassination by drone” program sounds eerily reminiscent to former V.P. Dick Cheney’s “one-percent doctrine.” Cheney believed the so-called “war on terror” empowered the Bush administration to invade sovereign countries and violate American’s civil liberties without the need for evidence or extensive analysis. The facts did not matter. According to Cheney,“If there's a 1% chance that Pakistani scientists are helping al-Qaeda build or develop a nuclear weapon, we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response. It's not about our analysis ... It's about our response.”

“The rational behind the administration’s ‘assassination by drone’ program sounds eerily reminiscent to former V.P. Dick Cheney’s ‘one-percent doctrine.’”

The Obama administrations rational for targeted killings of American citizens contradict some of the basic framework of American democracy. Due process, habeas corpus, checks and balances, and bills of attainder are civil liberty protections guaranteed by the Constitution.

Due process is such an important protection that it is referenced in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. The Due Process Clause acts as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the Government. For the President or other “high-level” government officials to act as judge, jury, and executioner irrespective of “…clear evidence...” of any immediate wrongdoing is the clearest example of arbitrarily denying life and liberty that one can imagine.

"Up to" 800 civilians the bulk of them nowhere near innocent for they were harboring, aiding and abetting persons known to be targets for violent military action. Same way with the mutts who were tending to OBL in Abbottabad__fk em__chalk em up as collateral damage.

According to the Center for Research on Globalization,“At the end of January 2013, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism was able to identify by name 213 people killed by drones in Pakistan who were reported to be middle-or senior-ranking militants. A further 331 civilians have also now been named, 87 of them children. But this is a small proportion of the minimum 2,629 people who appear to have so far died in CIA drone strikes in Pakistan. The Bureau’s work suggests 475 of them were likely to have been civilians.” The administration has championed the use of drones as making Americans safer by killing terrorists. Killing innocent people in foreign countries creates more terrorists.

President Obama signed the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) containing sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provisions and signed into law a four-year extension of post-Sept. 11 powers (PATRIOT ACT) to search records and conduct roving wiretaps in pursuit of terrorists. The rational behind the Obama administrations approach to civil liberties and warfare sounds eerily like a Dick Cheney moment.

Some of us understand that the cost of doing business increases from time to time and this requires more from the people who benefit from the services rendered by a government which provides those services. Even when cut to "the bone," the government will still have to request more to cover those increases.

Marco Rubio delivering the GOP response, he's coming out strongly against Feudalism.

7:31 PM PT: Rubio is speaking in a very dimly lit studio. He's now GOPsplaining to America that businesses are created when people take risks. "But President Obama believes this is the cause of our problems."

7:32 PM PT: "Hi, my name is Marco Rubio, and I'm a fucking nutjob."

7:32 PM PT: Oh God. This asshole is now trotting out the old lie that Freddie and Fannie created the housing crisis. Man, how do you argue with people who refuse to accept facts as they exist?

I will say, Rubio does an okay job when he's uncontested.(And doing an okay job is better than most GOP SOTU responses.) But when he gets into a debate with Hillary (or Joe), he's going to get absolutely crushed.

7:35 PM PT: Marco Rubio's response only seems sane to people who either already liked him or who simply didn't see Obama's speech. Anyone who saw Obama's speech knows that everything Rubio is saying here is horseshit.

7:35 PM PT: Oh, and by the way, why the fuck is Marco Rubio running against Barack Obama? Obama won't be on the ballot in 2016. Jeesh, what an idiot.

7:36 PM PT: Rubio is now delivering a blistering speech against Straw Man President Obama. While wiping some flop sweat from his brow.

7:36 PM PT: Shorter Rubio: "I AM KING NUTJOB. VOTE ME IN 2016. NOT SANTORUM."

7:37 PM PT: Reince sees starbursts:

Maybe I shouldn't say this, but doesn't Rubio give the impression of a guy who likes to pleasure himself whilst looking in the mirror?
