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.

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.

Alton Nolen, the suspect in the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma this week, grew up in a rough neighborhood in the small town of Idabel, and was filled with anger and resentment, according to a friend from the neighborhood. Nolen "always had a temper" and a tendency toward violence, says Kenneth Tucker, a former Army reservist, corrections officer, and cop, currently working the oil fields in Oklahoma, who was friends with the suspect growing up. Tucker was "not surprised" to learn of the violent attack. "I knew that he had a temper," says Tucker. "I knew that, like, most

Many people who have followed the Ferguson protests have noted a very involved element of radical Islam appearing just below the surface.

Recently Bret Lee has begun severely ramping up the cries for carnage and blood, as the weeks have progressed he appears to have become increasingly unstable. (Snip) Both Pam Geller and Charles Johnson have also noticed the increasing vitriol: Umar Lee is a notorious and unstable character. In 2013 he left Islam and then he returned.

First lady Michelle Obama said it was "natural" that kids are "grumbling" over new requirements for schools to fill vending machines and lunch lines with healthier food, but that it would not deter her from improving child nutrition. "Change is hard," the first lady said in an interview with Channel One. "And the thing about highly processed, sugary, salty food is that you get addicted to it. I don’t want to just settle because it’s hard." The first lady said she knew children "are grumbling because they have to make changes," and said her daughters roll their eyes when she

Michelle Obama spoke at the U.N. this week about women’s rights, and singled out the United States for how it treats women. Bill O’Reilly tonight found it grossly wrong for the First Lady to suggest that women are not treated fairly in the United States. O’Reilly cited statistics he argued show that women are doing very well, financially and educationally speaking, in the United States, and said the simple truth is “life is not fair.” And, he continued, “no government will be able to impose so-called fairness.” O’Reilly connected Obama’s comments to midterm politics and charged that Democrats are playing

And they even ditched the swanky restaurants at the Waldorf Astoria, where they had been staying in the city for a night at the eatery.

We also know that other workers at Vaughan say the suspect had tried to convert them to that religion. Some MSM outlets are emphasizing that the suspect was recently fired (it’s workplace violence, doncha know?), but the number of firings that lead to revenge beheadings is minuscule. In fact, I

ON THE NFL | Here is one bit of unsolicited advice for the NFL: Hire Eric H. Holder Jr. and put him in charge of all off-field player discipline. Do it as soon as possible. And hope that it helps to restore the public’s trust and confidence in the sport’s ability to deal with players’ off-field misbehavior. Holder is expected to resign as attorney general of the United States, making him available to help with the NFL’s current rash of off-field incidents. He is to remain at the Department of Justice until his successor is found. But that can be worked around. One person

FERGUSON, Mo – Federal civil rights investigators want the Ferguson police chief to ban his officers from wearing bracelets supporting a white colleague who shot and killed an unarmed, black 18-year-old. In a letter released Friday, the U.S. Justice Department asks Police Chief Tom Jackson to "confirm our understanding" that officers in the suburban St. Louis County department won´t wear "I am Darren Wilson" bracelets while on duty. Ferguson residents complained about the black bracelets with white lettering this week at a meeting with federal officials.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9.

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
