For Obama, program to lift up
young black men takes center stage

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/26/2014 11:27:59 AM

President Obama has put the My Brother’s Keeper initiative at the center of his response to racial unrest in Ferguson, Mo. But the president is also signaling that the program meant to provide opportunities to young men of color will be an important part of his post-presidency plans. Obama has been “deeply engaged” in the initiative, aides say, helping solicit over $200 million in private donations to be dispersed over the next five years into child development, school readiness, parent engagement, literacy, and school discipline reform programs. He’s asked friends — including NBA stars like Chris Paul and Magic Johnson

Comments:
If he really wanted to lift up EVERYONE he would stop the outrageous regulations crushing businesses, encourage congress to cut the corporate tax rate, quit allowing illegals to swamp this country and destroy social services, healthcare, education, etc. That´s just a start. Of course his radical, twisted ideology will never allow him to do that.

A very expensive Band-Aid. A stable home with a mother and father and a decent education are needed. Is Obama working toward those goals?

Lift them up? How about a set of parents who actually RAISE them to respect authority and reject the thug life? And STOP voting for democrats, they´re the real reason for the abysmal state of young blacks. The ink wasn´t dry on the civil rights act when the demonRATS promised them welfare if they threw out the man of the house.

Stop allowing these parent(s)from collecting long-term food stamps, never ending housing assistance and receiving a tax refund when they didn´t pay any taxes....yeah you do this and you will begin to build some responsibility into those who only want to receive without really earning it.

How about revamping the tax code so that more businesses will thrive, thus employing more people of every color. How about subsidies to business for co-op programs, interns, on the job training ,etc.

Both he and his administration are obsessed by race. How about focusing on "content of character rather than color of skin" for a change.

Horsewhipping men who abandon their wives and children would be a good start. Or if we cannot stomach that maybe politely asking Michael Brown´s father why chose to run off rather than raise his son. Ask the same thing of the many men and women you all know who have done the same thing. Divorce ruins the world and dead 18 year olds are just collateral damage.

They have to lift themselves up.

Clean up, stop wearing pants below your butt, clean up your language, clean up your attitude. Do not drink, do not do drugs, do not steal, do not do graffiti or damage others´ property.

Be careful who your associates are. Don´t associate with druggies, thieves and bullies.

Solve disputes with reason. Better yet, get the chip of your shoulder and minimize disputes. Drop the word "disrespect" from your speech.

Obey the laws. They are for everyone. They protect everyone. You are not an exception.

Go to school. Study hard. Get help (it´s there) if you have trouble with school work.

Get a job. If you have no skills, get something menial. If you are clean and look decent, and your attitude is good and willing to learn, you will find work. Earning even a small amount of your own money will feel good. You will move up. And out. Do not rip off any employer.

Keep your pants zipped. Stop making babies you cannot support.

Learn to be kind. Learn to value life - yours and the lives of others. Learn patience. Learn restraint.

I would say "go to church" but after hearing these black "pastors", I am not so sure. Too many "Al Sharptons Lite".

(just a beginning)

The Progressives do not want Blacks to succeed...for if they did succeed they would not be Dimocraps anymore.

That is the singular reason this will NEVER get fixed, Obie and his thugs will only pay lip service to this forever.

My brother´s Keeper is a project he hopes to continue after his presidency. I try not to be cynical, but this looks like the Clinton Foundation. It raises lots of money which is mostly spent on the Clintons. I think this will just become a way to support a lavish Obama lifestyle tax-free. It´ll be a foundation of some sort and I´m sure the IRS will have no trouble making sure it is quickly approved as a non-profit, non political entity.

Trully sad, that such outlandish good intentions will only lead to further harm. Pushing the ability to recognize the virtues and faults of the individual down the road, refusing to take personal responsability.

The ghetto culture demands handouts, help, more money, a collectivist respons. Non members of that culture say take responisibility, literally "Grow Up and stop acting like large perpetual children". Sadly the disconnect continues.

Every time I hear this "Brother´s Keeper" nonsense I think of his half brother George living back in Kenya in abject poverty. Who, BY THE WAY, called Dinesh D´Souza (not the supposed leader of the free world) pleading for money for his sick child. Dinesh gave George the $1000 he needed. I believe George Obama even told Dinesh "you are like a brother to me".

You cannot make this stuff up, if only we had actual news reporting. And some people wonder why Barry thinks he can get away with anything while flipping us all the "bird".

Any program he advocates will morph into an organization for young men that will be indoctrinated and reeducated to be supporters of Obama´s left-wing Alinsky cause.

Just another kind of a gang.

And they will, of course, be trained to vote for only Democrats.

The American taxpayers will pay for the whole thing.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat. Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week. “One of the concerns is the number of U.S. citizens who have

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa. White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.
