When President Barack Obama and others on the left are not busy admonishing the rest of us to be "civil" in our discussions of political issues, they are busy letting loose insults, accusations and smears against those who dare to disagree with them. (Snip) Innumerable facts, however, show that it is our Commander in Chief who is Phony in Chief. A classic example was his speech to a predominantly black audience at Hampton University on June 5, 2007. That date is important, as we shall see. In his speech -- delivered in a ghetto-style accent that Obama doesn't use anywhere
Comments: 0bama the community agitator. The first rule of community agitating is to elevate hate. The second is to use lies whenever you can get away with them.
And blacks wonder why they have limited opportunities when the speak ghetto or ebonics and wear pants below their buttocks.
Oh wait...they don't...just like O and his wife their opportunities were unlimited in one of the most racist policy in our history...Affirmative Action. "Don't need no content of character 'cause I be a people of color."
This should make headline news! Senator Obama voted against the waiver of the Stafford Act that would allowed unmatched funds to go to New Orleans without the 10 percent! This is simply amazing. In the 2007 tape before the Black ministers, he is lying, lying, lying. Romney needs to get this, it represents Obama's true character. I thought I was not going to be shocked anymore after learning of Obama's gay life in Chicago, but this is beyond the pale! Someone please get the hook, this guy is toxic with no conscience.
The interesting thing to me now is to watch Obama's reaction to having been revealed as a phony in the debate. He knows he's been revealed. And so he's falling back on a tactic that's worked for him before with his swooning fans, namely the self-deprecating comments. But it's falling flat. It's not working. So it will be interesting to see how he acts in the next debate.
I suspect he's hoping to come out aggressively and catch Romney off guard. But if Romney can outthink and outmaneuver his attacks, we could see a complete meltdown on camera.
if he's such the healer, how come he's never showed up in Englewood (all black area of Chicago where most of the town's murders take place) and told the young hoodlums to put down the guns, and get a job.
Oh, and I heard Bambi the other day say we need more roads and bridges from the cities to the suburbs so the minorities can get to work. We have the CTA, which has busses running everywhere, even from the city to the suburbs! Working people ride them every day. Maybe Bambi should be giving out bus route guides.
OMG. FTA: 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.
I repeat: OMG! TO be fair, Barry probably didn't even know what he was voting on because he's much too important to actually read bills or anything./s
OP, another aspect of community organizing is to lead from behind. As the agitator, you don't want to be the face of the people you organized, aroused and motivated. When they get to city hall, you want them to have their own local spokesman. You lose credibility with the government entities and the media if you are an outside rabble rouser. You want that true group spokesman. So, again, you lead from behind, just as Obama almost intuitively does in his foreign policy. It comes naturally to him, from his experience, such as that is.
Obama is a shameless race baiter. He can easily be unmasked by three simple questions:
1. What did you mean when you pointed out that if you had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin? Is this how you diffuse a racially charged situation? 2. Why did you claim the Cambridge MA police acted "stupidly" (a word you never hear in politics) before all the facts were in? 3. Why did you tell the residents of New Orleans that they were denied their Stafford Act money when in fact they recieved it even though you voted against it?
So, regarding the Stafford Act, the Phony-in-Chief did one of two things during this rabble-rousing speech before a black audience at Hampton University in 2007. ... He lied to them, or ... He displayed his stupidity.
Whichever .... the moment defines Obama. Thank you, Tom Sowell.
“Phony in Chief!” “Caughtcha Red-Handed!” “Gotcha!” “Is That A Smoking Gun In Your Hand Or Are You Just Unhappy To See Me?”
National Treasure Dr. Thomas Sowell does it again… writes a column in not one word too many and makes his point; in this case, by incontrovertibly exposing Obama’s inner shuck ‘n’ jive artist for all the world to see.
I'm not shocked about his vote against the Act because we've seen endless examples of Black-on-Black crime. This turned into a two-fer for Obama. He got to stick it to his "brothuhs", and then rile them up over it to put him in office.
I knew he was this immoral. I'm shocked because I didn't think he was this clever.
The most important thing about this article is the accurate description of what the euphism "community organizer" means. He was a professional stirrer up of grievances -- lying if necessary -- for political purposes. The communists among us have been doing this for 100 years. But "community organizer" sounds almost noble. People need to understand that that Hampton University tape is a tape of Obama being a "community organizer."
So simple. Constant agitator, as though he was a Party Line follower of the Communist Party. Hey, he doesn't have to BE one, acting like one is harmful enough. Communists Dalton Trumbo and Lillian Helman were both too famous and successful to actually have memberships in the ACP, the American Communist Party, paid for by Stalin. So, actually being a member of the Communists or Muslims is irrelevant, for the Phony in Chief, as long as he acts like them both. Agitate, create hate, bow, redistribute, that's enough damage for one phony.
The only thing that makes any sense to me is that someone local realized that the Bush administration was going to throw money at New Orleans and wanted the extra one dollar of local money on top of the ten from the government. And Obama felt safe in casting the vote knowing that the Press would never call him on it.
Thomas Sowell nails it yet again! There is another extension to the phonyness of Obama. He is the first president to politicize disaster relief in his refusal to aid Texas during the wild fires. We have had enough of community organizing ( rabble rousing ) and it is time for another president who will be president of all the people.
Thank you, again, Dr. Sowell. I feel much better knowing that someone with the brilliance of Tom Sowell is always on hand to keep our Phony-in-Chief in line. I did not realize the intensity and magnitude of the treachery Zippy has used to deceive his "Bros." I hope he doesn't leave a stain. After this debacle will the MSM ever be able to recover it's lost honor?
#14 is right on! According to reports in Illinois, when Obama, who rarely showed up to occupy his (empty) chair in the senate, he voted "present" to show he was actually there. It is amazing that without the telepromter he vaguely remembered the name of a piece of legislation but "forgot" that he actually voted against it. Thanks Dr. S!
Thanks You TS for bringing this lie to the forefront again. This was brought to our attention last week, but didnt hear any more about it with all the Libyan turmoil and then the debate. But wherever I read about it, it was explained that O'Phony voted against it because it was included with additional spending for the war. Im certainly not excusing him, just clarifing the reason he voted like he did.. The fact that he went on to LIE to those in NO and to use the race card, only validates what he has done his entire life.. use color to stir up anger and resentment... the Frank Marshall Davis way.
Nope. Obama did not cast that vote. Somebody else cast that vote for him. His voting card was stolen. Some radical right-winger borrowed it and voted in his name, just to make him look bad. Reminds me of Bart Simpson. "You can't prove that I did it. I didn't do it. It was somebody else." It is a sinister right-wing conspiracy.
White leftists use the black community by keeping them uneducated, uninformed/misinformed, angry and feeling entitled, thinking they are victims of the right or most white people in general, in poverty and dependent on the government, and lacking in self-confidence. Black leftists in positions of power or influence are tools of the white leftists (like trustees in jail) to keep their people down and in line with the program. They get their power and influence for doing such favors for the white leftist (slavemasters). The whole system was created under the false and insidious guise of pretending to "give them what they deserve for being kept down by the formerly blatantly racist system". The programs and policies the left has created under these false premises have only destroyed the majority of the black community and turned a large number of them into uneducated and violent tribalistic people who mostly kill their own. Yes, leftists did this on purpose. They are the racists who used to be the KKK, supporters of Jim Crow and poll taxes, segregationists, Copperheads (in the Civil War), Dixiecrats, etc. They have rather successfully deflected and projected their true behaviors onto others--especially those who would help and truly benefit the community--through various venues (public schools, the tool community leaders, mass media, etc.) But in truth they believe people of color are inferior but they have created such a strong network of propaganda and indoctrination that many people believe their lies. They don't want blacks to be successful (unless he/she is one of their lackeys). It is sickening. I try what I can to break this, but I am only one person fighting against 50 years of lies. We need everyone out there to make a difference.
We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.
Former Gov. Angus King, running as an independent, won the Senate contest Tuesday in Maine, NBC News projected, taking a seat that had been held by the Republicans. The loss further complicated the party's drive to take control of the Senate (Snip) Republican Ted Cruz defeated Democrat Paul Sadler to hold the open seat in Texas, succeeding retiring Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison, NBC News projected.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.
Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political
A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.
Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by
Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects. (Snip) Obama will also win three of Maine's four electoral votes, Fox News projects. It is unclear where the state's fourth electoral vote will fall. The latest batch of poll closings, and results, has allowed Obama to take
Mitt Romney was projected the winner in South Carolina on Tuesday night, taking home the state’s nine electoral votes. So far Tuesday the former Massachusetts governor has taken other reliably red states including Kentucky and West Virginia. Romney leads in the Electoral College with 24 electoral votes to President Obama’s three.
As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.
As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran
Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
Say goodbye to the 60-watt incandescent bulb. This year manufacturers started phasing out 100w and 75w bulbs. On January 1 it will become illegal to import or manufacture traditional 60w and 40w bulbs too. Time to stock up? Not so fast. First, check out Cree’s energy-sipping new 75-watt replacement bulb. I used to be outraged over the federal government’s draconian moves to outlaw traditional lightbulbs. For 100 years we’ve lived and thrived under the warm glow of incandescent lightbulbs. Aside from the fact that 90% of the electricity used by the bulbs is radiated in the form of heat rather than
