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 ...

BLACK UNITY OR INDIVIDUAL RESPECT It was widely reported when Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, suspended Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who told an audience at Kean College of New Jersey that Jews are bloodsuckers, gays are sissies, and the Pope is a cracker.

Mr. Farrakhan rebuked the manner in which Mr. Muhammad delivered his message, but Mr. Farrakhan reaffirmed the “truths” of that message! Reporters speculate if this is a repudiation of bigotry or not. But they are silent about the history of the Nation of Islam on these subjects.

In the early 1960's, at a large gathering of the Nation of Islam, the featured speaker was Elijah Muhammad, its leader. But the speaker just before him, addressing Elijah Muhammad's followers, was George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party.1

In the early 1960's Malcolm X, as a Nation of Islam spokesman, mocked the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. At the height of civil rights protest Malcolm traveled to the South, not to partake in civil rights protest, but to negotiate with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan on how to thwart the struggle for civil rights. This scene is omitted from Spike Lee's film and from the recent PBS documentary on Malcolm X.

Sociology, black-studies, and other academic departments have covered up and distorted much recent history, and the media have repeated their distortions. They often assert that blacks cannot be racists. How absurd! Not only can blacks be racists, they can be—and some are—fascists. There is a long tradition of black fascism in this country, one that the politically correct refuse to see.

Some endorsed the Million Man March because of its message, its noble aims, its unifying symbolism. How foolish! A march whose chief sponsor is America's leading fascist and racist is a march that must be condemned.

The march was a watershed event. Hundreds of thousands of black men have voted with their feet to endorse as their leader America's leading fascist. There were few American flags at the rally, for basically Black Muslims reject this country. They prefer the black, red, and green, and the black duce, Minister Farrakhan. It is a sad day for all Americans

i'm sorry, but after a perfunctory Google search, it seems no one is upset about it beyond the right wing nutjob sites.

so where on the internet have you been spending your time?

though how you can think that the tea party isn't full of the same people who opposed civil rights for black people would lead one to think that you probably don't spend much time visiting right wing nutjob sites.

I'm pretty sure sure US intel knew what the US citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki was doing in Yemen. That "we" didn't know was likely by design.

The impoverished Yemen looks to it's pipelines and ports for 70% of it's entire economy and for the strategically located nation to remain somewhat stable has required outside help from the likes of Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and by proxy the US.

Aside from al Qaeda setting up shop along the coast of the Aden Sea, Yemeni tribesmen frequently blow up the pipelines to the Red Sea as a way of protest. That the US doesn't trade with Yemen is irrelevant, someone does and would have to go elsewhere to purchase crude creating uncertainty(higher prices).

Drone warfare changed everything, the superpowers used to send in political sht stirrers and even assassins. Satellite technology in combination with drones seems far more effective particularly considering the psych factor drones place on those being hunted.

New Al Qaeda plan.

Sneak 50 Al Qaeda women into the US. Have them produce baby after baby creating US citizens. Send them to Yemen to plan & carry out terrorist attacks.

According to some., their US citizenship makes them untouchable for military strikes. Thy can only be arrested.

I'm sorry, but that is stupid.

it's so perplexing that right wing crazies have a 'kill all muslims' mentality, then balk at it being an American overseas, but have no problems with it with an American in the US.

They want to 'protect' an American's rights overseas, but are will to put it aside for a Muslim in America.

Such a confused bunch!

From the Annals of White Crime: Pennsylvania Mass Shooter Rockne Newell is a White Male Domestic Terrorist. When Will White Folks Clean Up Their Own House?
A white man runs amok again. When will the white community have a serious conversation about the violence of its members? Where are the white Don Lemons and white media elites on Fox News and conservative talk radio showing leadership on the frightening trend that is white men committing acts of mass murder and violence in the United States?
White men are approximately 30 percent of the American public, but they account for 70 percent of mass shootings. The pathological mix that is gun culture and imperiled/aggrieved white masculinity is killing people--most of whom are white--yet, the white community looks the other way.
As my Right-wing friends are fond of saying, "what of personal responsibility?"
Of course, when white people commit politically motivated crimes there is no handwringing, introspection, or generalizations made about white folks in mass. As we saw in the aftermath of the Adam Lanza shooting spree, once more the freedom to be white is the freedom to be an individual and to have none of your negative actions reflect anything about the group to which you belong.
....Just as Bill O'Reilly and other white elites did in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin murder case, where they decided to publicly scold black folks and their "bad culture", we need some black and brown leaders to lecture and truth-tell about the plague of white crime and white domestic terrorism that is imperiling the United States.
Of course, black folks do not have the media platform or authority to lecture white people about the pathological aspects of their culture, or to discuss the reality that is "white crime", as to do so would be "reverse racism" and unkind to the feelings of White America.
White privilege is killing white people. Yet, they choose to stand mute and silent.
http://www.chaunceydevega.com/2013/08/from-an...
Oh my or as we liberal elites say in New York, ouy vey.

All I can say is when in Chi Town, Obama's Hood, I only want Huma and the baby to shop here where most are white and voted for Romney:
http://www.oakbrookcenter.com/
Note the high proportion of children born IN wedlock.

Compared to the Obama voting consitituents, here:
http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nightly-news/433...
Note that 76% of this crowd does not know the name of their father.

As a card carrying Democrat, when in public I have to deny that the only muteness and silence is from the media who under reports such things, unless they come across a rare white on black crime they use promote to fan the flames, no pun towards Obama intended.

By the way, were you in the second video, and maybe took a day off from posting?

The tea party dirt bags have traded whatever manners they learned as children and the patience they practiced later in life for pure verbal and electronic hatred.

The TP pukes are taking over city and county commission meetings and ruining the experience found in serving through civic organizations.

It's like the fks all have a permanent case of the black azz__everything's in the shttr for them since the nih-nih-nih came to town.

US Growth and Jobs Figures Point to Continuing Economic Breakdown
As usual WOW your FOX has lied to you once again. Here is how the economy is actually shaping up.
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.

I know, it is lame to twist quotes to suit your agenda and I'm reluctant to point out such trivialities but I'm just tryin' to help.
Here, from a transcript posted at the Politico, is what Obama actually said about the need to deepen certain coastal ports:

quote:
Q. You mentioned infrastructure. Why is that a partisan issue? I live in a town, the bridge is falling apart, it’s not safe. How does that become Republican or Democrat? How do you not just fix the bridge?(Laughter and applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: I don't know. As you know, for the last three years, I’ve said, let’s work together. Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports. The Panama is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. If we don't deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don't do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs. Businesses won’t locate here.

The only conceivable way to interpret what Obama actually said is that the ports of Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville are "along the Gulf" of Mexico. Of course, these ports are really on the Atlantic Ocean.
