Finding our fathers
New York Daily News, by Ron Howell

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/28/2014 5:08:34 AM

For millions of black Americans, Barack Obama´s legacy is not going to be Obamacare, nor his decision to move troops out of Iraq, nor what he does about immigration. No, it will be the image of him as a black father - of him, for example, standing at the White House and declaring, after the 2012 racially charged killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin, "this could have been my son." For all the accusations that Obama waffles and wavers when it comes to controversial issues affecting African Americans, there is a widespread perception of him as the model of black fatherhood. It

It wasn´t any "racially charged" killing of Martin. It was a clear case of self defense. Race had nothing to do with it. Another case of the media lying.

If he´s the model of black fatherhood, it may explain why there are so few black fathers.

The tragedy that the African American community is suffering every day has many fathers, so to speak. But the greatest blame lies on left wing (mainly) white liberals and their political selfishness. There was a time when I thought of them as do gooders and the calamity that has befallen American blacks as unintended consequences. No more, after 0bama/Holder, who are a clear demonstration of their malice aforethought.

I found this article to be extremely thoughtful. I do not believe that the President is really trying to help though, rather he seeks to incite animosity between the races. I think the anger in the black community stems from children that do not have fathers. Their mothers are quick to smack their children, as I have seen many times on the subway. I know it has to be stressful to have so many fatherless children, but perhaps these women should consider that before surrendering their bodies to a man that does not deserve it.

This is a touching article about the author´s experience, and I agree 100% with him about the importance of engaged fatherhood. But I fail to see what, other than sound bites, photo ops, and money for "initiatives" that produce nothing but reports and income for government employees,this POTUS has done to improve conditions for the fatherless. He may well be a good father to his own daughters; I have no evidence to argue otherwise. But he has done nothing to arrest or reverse the cycle of inner-city crime, drug addiction, unwed mothers and chronic unemployment that sabotage future generations of children and work against the restoration of thriving families. In this, he has been an abject failure.

The problem with black males is they equate manhood with procreation and/or violence. Years ago Bill Moyers had a program which featured an unwed young woman from Newark, NJ. She had a job with Prudential, got pregnant, quit the job and moved into the projects, had another kid. The father did not live with her but was around to occasionally plant some more seed with this chic. As she had her third kid with this guy Moyers showed a hospital scene where "daddy" in delivery room garb is strutting up and down the hall outside the maternity ward loudly taking to himself saying over and over "I am the man." and "I am the King."
At the time I saw no difference between "daddy" and any other rutting animal. Further there is really no difference between "daddy" in Bill Moyers´ piece and any number of NFL football players.

I think it can be argued that Obama IS trying to help. However, he sees life through the prism of an Academic Progressivism steeped in the poisonous juices of Democrat driven race hatreds.

The Kansas Supreme Court Gives Democrats
What They Want—But the Fight May Not Be Over
National Review Online, by Hans Von Spakovsky    Original Article

Late yesterday, the Kansas supreme court granted the writ of mandamus filed by former Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Chad Taylor and ordered Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach to remove Taylor’s name from the November ballot. But the controversy may not yet be over because of another writ filed by a Democratic voter. The court dismissed Kobach’s claim (explained in an earlier NRO post) that Taylor failed to comply with the state statute (K.S.A. 25-306b(b)) that requires a candidate who wants to withdraw to certify that “they are incapable of fulfilling the duties of office if elected.” Taylor sent a letter

Deval Patrick is one lucky hack. In most years, the bust-out governor of Massachusetts would be considered the absolute most incompetent politician in the United States, if not the world, hands down. But these days Deval couldn’t even get himself arrested, even though he certainly deserves to be, given his mis-, mal- and nonfeasance in office. Deval’s problem? When it comes to incompetence, and corruption, Barack Obama has sucked all of the air out of the room. His endless fiascoes have pushed every other pol’s scandals on the back pages.

OMG: Limbaugh´s ´Jesus´

There they go again. The New York Times Book Review, which has a history of belatedly recognizing conservative bestsellers, has banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh’s latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list. According to publishing sources, Limbaugh’s probe into the accuracy of the Bible sold 9,660 in its first week out, according to Nielsen BookScan. That should have made it No. 4 on the NYT print hardcover sales list. Instead, Henry Kissinger’s World Order, praised by Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post, is No. 4 despite weekly sales

It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing on Sept.

A large government contracting firm that appears to be doing or seeking business with the National Security Agency employs the spouse of one of the most powerful officials at the agency, according to corporate records, press releases, and company websites. But the NSA has declined to address whether there is a potential conflict of interest or to disclose any information about contracts or the official’s financial holdings. The spouse, for years, has also had an intelligence technology company incorporated at the couple’s suburban residence in Maryland. The NSA official, Teresa H.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel.

Federal authorities have charged an upstate New York man with trying to persuade two others in the United States to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, the terrorist group wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials have been outspoken about for weeks. Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, also plotted to kill U.S. soldiers who had returned from Iraq, federal prosecutors announced today. Last year, two FBI informants began building relationships with Elfgeeh, who -- not realizing they were working with the FBI -- encouraged them to go overseas and join terrorists in Syria, prosecutors allege in court documents.

MONTREAL -- Quebec´s separatists are watching closely this week to see if the Scottish independence movement has learned from their failed attempts to break away from Canada. And it could be rejuvenated if Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, which is leading the campaign for Scotland to vote yes in Thursday´s vote on independence, has been advised over the years by separatists in Quebec, a French-speaking province where two referendums on independence failed, though the last "Non" was narrow. Polls suggest the outcome in Scotland will be close. A vote by Scotland to separate from

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push
