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.

No way any of those chumps can give intelligent economic advice. More like, obama is giving out talking points for the African-first crowd to mumble after sequestration hits.

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 ).

Now wait, maybe there;s sine truth here. Sharpton has never had an honest job, yet lives like a king. Or is that 0bama? Either way, they certainly know how to live great off other peoples work.

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.

Some of the country´s richest young people came together at the White House recently for a day-long conference about how exactly they plan to spend their inherited wealth. The invitation-only event sought to engage the young billionaires with the public sector and with each other in order to empower and advance their philanthropic endeavors. The event was organized by Thomas Khalil, a deputy director for technology and innovation in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy along with Nexus, an organization that aims to encourage philanthropy among the young and rich.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
