Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Obama's Tweeting Doesn't Scare Anyone

Nigeria’s homegrown, al-Qaeda linked militant group, Boko Haram, brags openly that it recently kidnapped about 300 young Nigerian girls. It boasts that it will sell them into sexual slavery.

Those terrorists have a long and unapologetic history of murdering kids who dare to enroll in school, and Christians in general. For years, Western aid groups have pleaded with the State Department to at least put Boko Haram on the official list of terrorist groups. But former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team was reluctant to come down so harshly, in apparent worry that some might interpret such condemnation as potentially offensive to Islamic sensitivities.

Instead, Western elites now flood Facebook and Twitter with angry postings about Boko Haram — either in vain hopes that public outrage might deter the terrorists, or simply to feel better by loudly condemning the perpetrators.

The Obama administration has exhausted the vocabulary of outrage in condemning the aggressions of Russia’s Vladimir Putin. We habitually lecture Mr. Putin that he does not understand it is no longer the 19th century, when blood and arms once settled differences. But Putin has no apologies for his 19th-century worldview of stronger powers dictating to weaker ones as they please.(Nor does Boko Haram have any apologies for slavery.)

Americans go into a frenzy about insensitive language or politically incorrect behavior by some celebrities and public figures — L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, the Duck Dynasty TV family, celebrity chef Paula Deen, former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. But if we are postmodern and sensitive, what do we say or do about premodern racists with nuclear weapons, like the North Koreans?

Americans have become touchy about the reciting of prayers in public places. So what do we think of Saudi Arabia, which just ordered 1,000 lashes for an activist who was deemed to have insulted Islam?

The truth is that much of the world never left the 19th century and is not too worried that it hasn’t. We have forgotten that racism, slave trading, lashings, and stoning are not that rare on our planet.

We should not confuse material progress with moral advancement. Just because Boko Haram members have cell phones and AK-47s does not mean that they have evolved much from their predecessors’ days of whips and chains. And just because the sultan of Brunei flies in private jets does not mean that his worldview is any different from that of his forefathers who on horseback enforced the same sharia law.

We should also reset our notion of multiculturalism. That is the popular campus fad that postulates all cultures are roughly equal and just different from one another — as opposed to any one either being better or worse. Left unspoken is the universal standard by which we judge as evil the enslaving, stoning, or whipping of the innocent. That moral belief system is Western to the core.

From Greece to Jerusalem to Rome to the Enlightenment to the Founding Fathers slowly grew a standard of human rights that could be applied to anyone, regardless of race, creed, or color. But that is still not how most of the non-Western world works today.

The U.N. just appointed theocratic Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, even though Iranian women are stoned for committing adultery and some are punished for being rape victims.

As good multiculturalists, should we say,“Who are we to judge either the U.N. or Iran?” Or should we tweet out that soon-to-be-nuclear Iran better leave the 19th century — or else?

Ben Carson Schools NBC’s David Gregory on Slavery, Obamacare and Marxism
May 19, 2014 By Matthew Burke
Dr.Ben.Carson
Dr. Ben Carson educated NBC’s David Gregory on Meet the Press on Sunday, during a segment where Gregory attempted to smear Carson with a “gotcha” question.
Gregory played a clip from 2013 where Dr. Carson said that Obamacare was “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. And it is in a way, it is slavery, in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government and it was never about health care. It was about control.”
Gregory, a mouthpiece for the Obama regime masquerading as a journalist, tried to make that statement stick as Carson’s “legacy,” asking Carson,“People who have health care now that didn’t have it before, I suspect would disagree strongly with you, but I wonder, in addition, is that really how you wanted to be defined, how you wanna put government on trial in effect, in a political way?”
Dr. Carson educated Gregory (see video below) that giving up control of one’s healthcare decisions to government is a loss of freedom and a type of slavery. Dr. Carson said that government takeover of healthcare is a Marxist tactic to take control of the populace and that there is a better way to make sure everyone has access to healthcare:
DR. BEN CARSON: Well, first of all, recognize what I said —“worst thing since slavery.” I didn’t say that it was slavery. People who are well-read…[Gregory interrupts]
DAVID GREGORY:[Interrupting Dr. Carson] Well, you said it is slavery in a way because it makes all of us subservient to the government…
CARSON: Right, and I said,“in a way.” In a way, anything is slavery that robs you of your ability to control your own life, and when you take the most important thing you that you have, which is your health care, and you put that in the hands of government bureaucrats, I think you have done the wrong thing.
And, as I was about to say [before Gregory interrupted], you go back an look at the neo-Marxist literature and look at what they say, you don’t have to listen to what I say, about taking control of healthcare of the populace and making the people dependent.
This is not what America is about.
Do I believe in healthcare for everybody? Absolutely! But, I think they’re much better ways to get there which leaves healthcare in the hands of patients and of doctors.
that from the democrat who voted for Clinton?

he's just another Mitt.

Never mind the "FACT" that we were 9 months into Bush's appointed position...So he had 9 months to react to not only how the terrorist might attack but ignored repeated warnings before he ignored them all, without doubt history will show that his administration was the most inept one ever. He inherited the best of everything and then left the very worst of everything..It's all there and only the very blind and unwilling cannot see that.
What about the first attack on the Twin Towers under Clinton's watch and the five years of killing Americans overseas in terrorist attacks that virtually were not retaliated and emboldening the enemy to plot 9/11 under Clinton's watch?

You don't think Clinton was receiving threats all those years up until he left office? Why didn't he prevent 9/11 if Bush was receiving the same threats?

But explain your answer - why or why not.
Which is why I'm still waiting for you to show a government that's bribery free so you can prove your point, son.

Here we go again. Yet another Obama voting Democrat liberal goes berserk and kills someone!

ACTOR MICHAEL JACE, best known for playing a gay cop on the FX series 'The Shield,' is charged with murder in the shooting death of his wife, April, in their Los Angeles home.

Like I've always said: Democrats should not be allowed to have guns.

The Republican Party is dying from an internal contradiction. On the one hand, it claims to want freedom and individual rights. On the other hand, it embraces fundamentalist religion as the basis for civilization and rejects science as the basis of a modern society!

To be fair, Democrats resisted reining in F&F and curbing the subprime mortgage crisis and a Democratic-controlled Congress controlled the purse strings the last two years of Bush's presidency. So there's enough blame to go around. Blaming Bush solely seems a bit unfair.

Why? Did they try that underground attack again son? Is there something everyone in the real world missed?

And it's interesting how you want Clinton to have prevented 9/11 now.

Carol you are living proof that looking foolish is no bother. No one has been corrected and told more lies than you, and sometime you tell the same ones over and over..Always passing the buck, next it will be Clinton who attacked Iraq. What else can a president do besides pass along the information on hand, Bush was in over his head from day one. If his name was anything other than Bush he would have been laughed at as a candidate. Clinton kept us safe and economically sound...Bush blew all of that to hell and history shows that to be true.. You embarrass yourself daily.
