Obama to give speech 50
years after ´I Have a Dream´

The Hill (Washington DC), by Mario Trujillo

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/7/2013 8:43:45 PM

President Obama is slated to deliver a speech later this month commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in which Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama will deliver his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial — the same place where King spoke 50 years ago. The Let Freedom Ring ceremony will be held Aug. 28. "It’s obviously a historic, seminal event in the country. It’s part of my generation’s formative memory and it’s a good time for us to do some reflection,"

MLK....I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

BHO....I have a dream that my two children will one day live in a nation where they will live like elites on the backs of white crackers and be granted special protected status from the most ungodly, un-American and unethical Attorney General in US history.

“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest speech in the history of our nation.
“Today, according to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, we must face the tragic fact that all of us are still not free. Despite food, welfare, rent, medical, employment, and education benefits, America, in my opinion, has given its undereducated people with attitude a bad check which has come back marked "insufficient funds” and it is my duty to redistribute the wealth until all people and cities resemble Detroit.
“There is something that I must say to my people - let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for things we haven’t earned by drinking from the cups of hard work and gratitude but instead let us continue with bitterness and devisiveness as so brilliantly advanced by my mentors, the Revs. mentioned above.
“There are those who are asking, "When will you be satisfied?" No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until America is transformed into the vision of Bill Ayres and Saul Alinsky.
“I have a dream. I dream of a future when my slim daughters (thanks to my wife’s hip-hop initiative) will be able to bring their experience and knowledge to a transformed America – an America where the nation’s children can sing, “Obama, Obama, mmm, mmmm, mmm,” with new meaning and utmost adulation.

“Yes, I have a dream, and I am it.”

Obama will use speech to stir racial hatred by noting the large economic gap between the rich, shorthand for whites, and poor blacks. He will NOT explain why he has expanded this gap as president. Obama will also describe what he is doing to stop racism, from challenging voter ID laws to improving schools. He will NOT mention that the crowd gathered before him had to show photo IDs when passing through the metal detectors. Nor will he mention that he is opposed to school choice because he is beholden to the public teachers union.

Obama will viciously attack the Republican House for threatening to defund ObamaCare, for threatening poor blacks with cuts in welfare and food stamps, for not wanting to help Detroit and for wanting to shut down the federal government which is helping blacks & illegals achieve the American dream.

Finally, a person with a white mother and a Kenyan Marxist father, who was adopted by an Indonesian stepfather and then raised by his white grandparents in Hawaii, will tell a mostly black crowd how he shared the same experiences of the Deep South as their families. The crowd will be brought to tears, especially when he describes how his exclusive private school in Honolulu detested Selma´s police chief, Bull Connors, a Democrat.

I´m sure they´ll do everything in their power to gin up a big crowd. I´m hoping hardly anyone shows. Regardless, you know he´s not going to have a crowd anywhere close to the size of the one in front of MLK for that speech. I can already see the next day´s newspapers for those not in the tank for Obama with a side-by-side comparison of the crowds.

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Bill Clinton is cheating — on his vegan diet. Clinton’s doctor let the secret out in New York Times that sometimes the former president cheats on his healthy diet. But two of the nation’s leading vegan and vegetarian organizations say they’re willing to give Clinton a pass since he is mostly adhering to the tenants of the diet. Why does Clinton continue to call himself a vegan? “There is some latitude … he is primarily a vegan,” said Len Torine, Executive Director of the American Vegetarian Association. “Whatever amount of vegan you are, I support it.

Russia has asked the United States to use its influence to prevent bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, as Kiev threatened a "large-scale anti-terrorist operation" to remove separatists from government buildings. Russian President Vladimir Putin made the appeal during a phone conversation with US President Barack Obama, in which the Kremlin said the two leaders discussed the escalating unrest. The Kremlin said the Russian president also rejected Western claims that Moscow is behind attacks on government buildings, saying they were "based on unfounded information." Earlier Mr Putin´s spokesman said Russia had received several

Arab American Institute President and Democrat strategist James Zogby has a warning for the Democrat Party. He feels his party is losing the vote of Americans of European and Mediterranean descent – and they´d better get it back. Zogby is especially worried about losing ground in the important states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania – all states with a large contingent of voters with "European/Mediterranean" lineage. He thinks that these states could help Democrats with the close margin we have seen for years in American election results but only if Democrats don´t ignore these voters. In his op-ed, Zogby

New figures by the Congressional Budget Office released on Monday reveal that over the next 10 years the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio will double to 78%. Over the last four decades America´s average debt-to-GDP ratio was 39%. At the end of 2007, federal debt was just 35% of GDP. The CBO report says gross federal debt will soar from $17.7 trillion to $27 trillion over the next ten years. CBO warned of the dire consequences the nation´s debt will have if gone unchecked. "Such high and rising debt would have serious negative consequences," says the report. "Federal spending on interest payments

Snider’s Superfoods, family owned and operated since 1946, says that they will not be hiring any new baggers or cashiers in order to avoid the 50 worker threshold, which under the new Obamacare stipulations, would require that they provide health insurance if they employ 50 or more full time workers.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening.

Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
