Truth or Lies
Posted in the Blairsville Forum
Watch the video and see what Obama had to say about New Orleans.
Now read the article.
"When 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act.... And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said,‘Look at this devastation; we don't expect you to come up with your own money. Here, here's the money to rebuild ... because you're part of the American family.’ What's happening down in New Orleans?! Where's your dollar?! Where's your Stafford Act money?! Makes no sense.... Tells me that somehow the [black] people down in New Orleans they don't care about as much.
Pretty damning, huh? Now for the rest of the story. As I reported last year:
Barely two weeks before Obama gave the Hampton U. speech, the US Senate had in fact waived the Stafford Act for New Orleans. Moreover, that city ended up receiving more aid than Florida and NYC combined. But that’s not all. As Thomas Sowell wrote:
Unlike Jeremiah Wright's church, the U.S. Senate keeps a record of who was there on a given day. The Congressional Record for May 24, 2007 shows Senator Barack Obama present that day and voting on the bill that waived the Stafford Act requirement. Moreover, he was one of just 14 Senators who voted against — repeat, AGAINST — the legislation which included the waiver."
the Senate waived the Stafford Act.
Now watch this video and tell us which is the scariest video. Obama or Jeff.
Bolling Falsely Accuses Obama Of Voting Against Katrina Relief Funds
October 3, 2012 8:57 PM EDT
...But Bolling's attack is way off base. Then-Senator Obama did vote to waive the Stafford Act for Katrina relief. In fact, he was one of the Senate's major proponents for waiving the Stafford Act.
In 2007, two similar supplemental spending bills contained funding for Katrina relief that was not subject to Stafford Act restriction. At the time Obama opposed one version of the bill because it did not contain a timeline for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. In a May 24, 2007, statement explaining his vote against the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, Obama said: "With my vote today, I am saying to the President that enough is enough. We must negotiate a better plan that funds our troops, signals to the Iraqis that it is time for them to act and that begins to bring our brave servicemen and women home safely and responsibly."
While Obama voted against the 2007 supplemental spending bill Eric Bolling is referring to, he voted for the other version of the supplemental bill that included both a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq and a waiver for the Stafford Act that would provide relief to New Orleans.
In fact, Obama was a strong, consistent proponent of waiving the Stafford Act for Katrina recovery. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune (accessed via Nexis), Obama had called for unrestricted relief funding in January of 2007....
Your attempts of covering Obama's azz with misinformation is nothing new.
Give us another poor excuse of Obama's stumbles and fumbles. He's legless now, give him a wheelchair.
Nothing but bluster, wipe the egg off your face and try again.
Mr weasel himself, George Stephanopoulos, does the reporting along with another reporter who refused to give complete details about how:
Obama knew the Senate had taken up and pass the relief act to forego the Stafford act of requiring a 10% match from the local community.
You twist and turn all you want, the fact remains Obama lied to the black audience in his cajun speech.
Wipe the shat off your face, and try again.
So let's see, Katrina hits late August of 2005 and Congress doesn't get around to voting on waiving the Stafford Act until 2007, which in one form Obama votes for (03-29-2007), then in another form Obama votes against (05-24-2007). Then in June 2007 he gives a speech at Hampton University wondering why it took Congress almost 2 years to take up the issue.
Looks like just another in a long series manufactured outrage by those opposed to all things Obama.
"he voted for the other version of the supplemental bill that included both a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq and a waiver for the Stafford Act that would provide relief to New Orleans."
"While Obama voted against the 2007 supplemental spending bill Eric Bolling is referring to"
Hannity, Carlson Desperately Attempt To Manufacture "Racially Charged Rhetoric" From Obama Video
October 3, 2012 12:38 AM EDT
...In the most-discussed clip of the show, Hannity and Carlson aired a clip of Obama discussing the Katrina relief effort, describing it as "a dose of heavily racially charged rhetoric." But in the clip, Obama simply criticizes the federal government for its poor response to Katrina and compares the reconstruction effort to that following Hurricane Andrew and the 9/11 attacks:
Down in New Orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later there's a law, federal law -- when you get reconstruction money from the federal government -- called the Stafford Act. And basically it says, when you get federal money, you've got to give a 10 percent match. The local government's got to come up with 10 percent. Every 10 dollars the federal government comes up with, local government's got to give a dollar.
"Now here's the thing, when 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act -- said,'This is too serious a problem. We can't expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you got to put in. Well, here's 10 dollars.' And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said,'Look at this devastation. We don't expect you to come up with y'own money, here. Here's the money to rebuild. We're not going to wait for you to scratch it together -- because you're part of the American family.'... What's happening down in New Orleans? Where's your dollar? Where's your Stafford Act money? Makes no sense. Tells me that somehow, the people down in New Orleans they don't care about as much.
Looks like you might be all elbows and assholes.
The post #1 showed Obama lied when he knew
the truth about the Stafford Act was by-passed
to allow full aid. No 10% match for New Orleans.
Obama is a liar. Obama also is a black racist in a
Quieter mode than Jesse Jackson.
As a teen he hated whitey. He said so in his autobiography.
As a young man he associated with known black separatists,
and others,“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my
friends carefully. The more politically active black students.
The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and
the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We
smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the
dorms, we discussed neocolonialism,
[the socialist, anti-colonialist revolutionary] Franz Fanon,
Euro centrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our
cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud
that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois
society's stifling constraints. We weren't indifferent or careless
or insecure. We were alienated."
As an adult in Chicago, he affiliated with Jeremiah Wright’s
Church for 20 years. Wright preached hate for the white race
and America. He only left the church when confronted with
losing the Presidential race in 2008.
A man doesn’t attend a hate filled church for 20 years unless he
believes in that hate.
In his speech in 2007, he preached to a predominantly black
audience at Hampton University on June 5, 2007.
“In his speech -- delivered in a ghetto-style accent that Obama
doesn't use anywhere except when he is addressing a black audience
-- he charged the federal government with not showing the same
concern for the people of New Orleans after hurricane Katrina hit as
they had shown for the people of New York after the 9/11 attacks, or
the people of Florida after hurricane Andrew hit.
If you want to know what community organizers do, this is it –
rub people's emotions raw to hype their resentments. And this was
Barack Obama in his old community organizer role, a role that should
have warned those who thought that he was someone who would bring
us together, when he was all too well practiced in the arts of polarizing
Obama exhibiting his racism and hate for the whites. He’s too much of a
coward to express his true feelings.
And now the lie.
“Two weeks earlier, on May 24, 2007, the United States Senate had in fact
voted 80-14 to waive the Stafford Act requirement for New Orleans, as it
had waived that requirement for New York and Florida. More federal money
was spent rebuilding New Orleans than was spent in New York after 9/11 and
in Florida after hurricane Andrew, combined.”
According to Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, the president
has responded to the August landfall of Hurricane Isaac, which devastated
several parishes in Louisiana, by requiring local governments to provide
the maximum allowable 25 percent matching funds to receive their federal
aid, instead of the 10 percent match that served as the Bush administrations
guideline in the aftermath of Katrina.
Plaquemines Parish, which was particularly hard hit by Isaac and whose
residents had to evacuate to escape the effects of storm surge, is one area
whose Stafford Act requirements Obama has declined to waive.
In contrast with the largely black areas of New Orleans that Obama addressed
in his 2007 Hampton University speech, U.S. Census Bureau data show that Plaquemines’ population is 71 percent white.
Scalise added that Vice President Joe Biden had promised Louisiana that the
federal government would forgive the $705 million in community disaster
loans provided by the federal government after Katrina."
