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
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
