Jesse Jackson: Good to Help
Immigrants, But Obama Can’t
‘Abandon Urban America’

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/11/2014 8:44:38 PM

Reverend Jesse Jackson sat down with Greta Van Susteren on Fox tonight and basically took on President Obama for pushing for billions of dollars to help young illegal immigrants at the border, but not making that kind of commitment to places like Chicago. Jackson said helping these poor children is obviously a good, moral thing to do, but Obama can’t just “abandon urban America” in the process. Jackson said that there is a crisis going on in Chicago right now, with guns and drugs coming into the city while more jobs are heading out. He said things have gotten so bloody and tragic, it’s time for federal intervention.

Comments:
He´s just now figuring that out?? He wants more money shoveled his way that will solve nothing. I cannot tolerate listening to that fool who sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he talks.

He backed way away from directly criticizing Obama. Even Greta´s excellent poking at him could not dislodge any anger toward Obama. He was ready. Ugh.

IMO Jesse doesn´t grasp the demographics; Washington doesn´t much care.

The black vote is becoming unimportant because it can be taken for granted and because it is hardly needed any longer. Gaining hispanic votes is the new frontier.

Why do I see it that way? (1) much of the black vote is heavily concentrated in blue states which will elect Democrats anyway. (2) vote fraud in the poorer inner cities will generate huge Democrat majorities even should many disgusted blacks stay home.

Very rough construction above but close enough.

If the GOP was smart (it isn´t), they would exploit this issue to drive a wedge between Democrats and Blacks. Imagine telling an inner city audience that Democrats are giving their jobs away to people whose only qualification is the ability to crawl under a fence. If the GOP picked up even 20% of the black vote, the Democrats would lose every national election.

But alas, the GOP will mumble nonsense about acts of love, instead.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that President Obama’s “cautious” response to ISIS is similar to his response to the 2009 Detroit auto bailout. “That was a risky maneuver,” Earnest said at a press conference, referring to Obama’s auto bailout. “It would not have been possible without this president, who is sometimes described as cautious.” Earnest made his statement at a press conference at which it was revealed by reporters that ISIS beheaded another American journalist, Steven Sotloff, two weeks after threatening to kill Sotloff in a video in which the group beheaded journalist James Foley.

National Journal commentator Ron Fournier called it “frankly insulting to the American public” that President Barack Obama would claim social media is driving a mistaken perception of a dangerous world. Fournier spoke on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” Tuesday about the White House’s next moves against ISIS, the radical Islamic terror group that beheaded James Foley on Aug. 19, and a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff, on Tuesday. The journalist said that Obama needs to “explain very honestly to the public what it is he’s doing, and to at least look like he’s taking this seriously . . . In this kind

A Democratic candidate running against Alabama Rep. Mike Rogers shocked Twitter users Monday when he compared Republicans in Congress to Islamic State militants. J.T. Smith, of Phenix City, is the Democratic nominee to represent Alabama’s District 3, The Birmingham News reported. “The greatest country on earth is being bullied from within. Actions of Republicans in congress are worse than #ISIL,” he tweeted on Labor Day to more than 3,000 followers.

Say what you will about Barack Obama, but his approach to the Middle East has been ruthlessly consistent. He was elected on the promise to end America’s involvement in the post-9/11 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He didn’t fulfill those promises as rapidly as his supporters wished – he preferred what his advisers thought would be a “responsible” retreat rather than a full-fledged bug-out, and in Afghanistan masked his withdrawal timetable behind a temporary troop surge – but he’s made and making good on his word. No event – not the slow-motion collapse of post-Bush Iraq, nor the many failures

Barack Obama left for a three-day European swing Tuesday afternoon without saying a single word in response to a terrorist video showing the beheading of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist to die that way on camera. The president´s departure came amid equally deafening swirls of helicopter rotors and tough questions about whether and when the U.S. will strike back in a meaningful and public way against ISIS, the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. News of Sotloff´s execution broke online at 1:05 p.m. as White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest prepared for his daily briefing with reporters; he

Wisconsin prosecutors have selectively targeted conservative groups to effectively chill their speech, lawyers for a conservative activist detailed in a Tuesday filing with a federal appeals court. Eric O´Keefe, director of the limited government advocacy group the Wisconsin Club for Growth, in February sued prosecutors over a secret investigation into potential campaign finance violations by conservative groups during recall elections. Two judges have already rejected the legal theory offered by prosecutors and the probe has been halted, but prosecutors have asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit to reopen the case.

The number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States would surge more than five times the current wave of 90,000 if President Obama grants amnesty to up to 6 million undocumented people as many advocates expect, according to an immigration expert. “It could hit nearly half a million people,” said Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies with the Center for Immigration Studies. She said that the additional 500,000 would come in the first year following an amnesty plan. Obama has hinted that he plans to wait until after the upcoming midterm elections before unveiling his executive order, an action that

American Special Forces commandos are on the ground fighting in northern Iraq, according to a published report, just a week after Barack Obama said that wouldn´t happen during his presidency. Even as he has authorized more than 100 target airstrikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Iraq, Obama told the American Legion on August 26 that ´American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq.´ ´I will not allow the United States to be dragged back into another ground war in Iraq,´ he said, adding later that ´the answer´ to ISIS ´is not to send in

BEIRUT — An Internet video purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group. Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley. Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
