Obama Gets Economic Advice
from Al Sharpton, Other
´African American Leaders´

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/22/2013 1:09:32 PM

Barack Obama met with Al Sharpton and other "African American leaders" to discuss the president´s "plan to strengthen the economy for the middle class and continue to build ladders of opportunity for those striving to get there," according to the White House. Participants in the meeting included: • Melanie Campbell, President, National Coalition of Black Civic Participation • Ralph Everett, President, Joint Center for Economic and Political Studies • Wade Henderson, President, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights • Ben Jealous, President, National Association of the Advancement of Colored People • Avis Jones-DeWeever, Executive Director,

Comments:
Ahh yes, the biggest race baiter in the world gives economic advice which most likely consists of a list of "more free stuff." We really don´t need much proof that 0bama has degraded the White House, but this ranks right up there. The world is indeed upside down.

There are no cuts! It is a decrease in the amount of the scheduled increase.

More appropriately called "More Ways to Screw the White Man" or perhaps "Voter Fraud 201" or "Race Baiting, Graduate Level Course."

It never ceases to amaze that *anyone* gives Al Sharpton the time of day - let alone a forum from which to spew his crap.

Based on ´economic advice´ from him, we´d see the White House holding a crack-addled hooker hostage in exchange for ´reparations´.

As amusing as it was to watch Democrats come w/in a hair´s breadth of running Sharpton for president...

...it´s a bit less amusing to see they actually have Sharpton version 2.0 running the country now.

A damn sad state of affairs.

Yep- Obama the great uniter is actually the most divisive president in our history. In
case he cannot count, the Black race is approx 12% of the population. What about he other 88 or so %. In my opinion Obama is the biggest fool to have ever disgraced the Oval Office.
Just wish he would stay on the golf course
all the time and forget to run the Country ( into the ground ).

In the context of this article, America has always been a magnet for jobs, the problem is African-Americans are not getting very many of those jobs, as a huge number of jobs that could be done by African-Americans have instead been taken by illegal aliens who Obama supports, at least rhetorically big time.

If you want to benefit the middle class, and the lower class for that matter, stop kicking the hiring class in the teeth with threats of higher taxes, higher energy costs, higher medical plan costs and more oppressive government regulation.

A Texas congressman once famously said
" No poor man ever offered me a job." Prosperous is good. It radiates down.

Hating the rich ain´t governing. I have spoken.

First Lady Michelle Obama included cautious but clear remarks on freedom of expression and worship in a speech in Beijing at the weekend – comments that were ignored in state media coverage of her visit, where the preferred focus has been on fashion and food. Before her visit to China began the White House said she would promote education and “people-to-people” exchanges, and would steer clear of contentious issues like human rights. But in an address to Chinese and American students at the Stanford Center at Peking University, Mrs. Obama did insert references to key human rights, albeit without any

She talked about the millions of people in her state who are benefiting from the law that Republicans have tried to repeal 54 times. "This is a huge success, this law. I´m saying that. We had a terrible rollout, it slowed us up, but it´s all falling into place now and the Republican answer is very, very simple -- let´s repeal it and take away all these benefits from people.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is pushing back after data whiz Nate Silver projected Sunday that Republicans will win the Senate this year. In an interview with Jon Karl on ABC´s "This Week," Silver, who recently relaunched his FiveThirtyEight franchise, gave Republicans a 60-percent chance of winning a Senate majority during the 2014 midterm election cycle. But Democrats, who have in the past lauded Silver for his analysis of polls, on Monday were skeptical of his projection this time around. "Nate Silver and the staff at FiveThirtyEight are doing groundbreaking work, but, as they have noted, they have to base their forecasts

Nate Silver, the former New York Times statistician wunderkind who successfully predicted every state in the 2012 election and became something of an anti-anxiety pill for worried Democrats, now predicts that the GOP has a roughly 60% of retaking the Senate in the 2014 midterms. Silver, who just launched his own site, FiveThirtyEight, under the ESPN banner, spoke to ABC’s Jon Karl in a segment on This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning. There he said his best prediction saw the GOP taking six seats, the exact number they’d need to have a one-vote majority. However, that prediction was +/-

Breaking With the West, Afghan Leader
Supports Russia’s Annexation of Crimea

KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghanistan this weekend joined Syria and Venezuela and became the newest member of a select club of nations: those that have publicly backed the Russian annexation of Crimea. Citing “the free will of the Crimean people,” the office of President Hamid Karzai said, “we respect the decision the people of Crimea took through a recent referendum that considers Crimea as part of the Russian Federation.” To the casual observer, becoming the first Western-backed democracy to express support for the widely denounced referendum in Crimea might seem an odd tack for Afghanistan, which is heavily dependent on assistance from the

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said
