OBAMA JUST REMINDED US

Here’s what Obama tweeted yesterday: “We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”

Barack Obama just accused Trump of killing Americans, when he accuses him of denying early warnings of a pandemic. But think with me: was it Donald Trump who denied the warnings, or was it the Democrats?

Fact: Early on, Trump banned flights from China. Immediately, Obama’s disciples screamed that Trump overreacted because of racism. Mr. Obama, may I ask you, “Tell me again: Who was in denial?”

Fact: As I wrote in an earlier blog, after Trump’s travel ban, the health director of Democrat-controlled New York City and Mayor Bill De Blasio both encouraged people to go out to restaurants and to gather in crowds! They especially defended going ahead with Chinese New Year celebrations, so they would ‘not look racist.’ This helped to spread the virus.

Barack, may I ask you a second question: “When you say we’ve seen the “consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic,” you were referring to the Democrat leaders of New York City, right?””

Today we were reminded of the mind numbing illogic peculiar to Obama and those who hate Trump. It goes like this:

  1. a) blame the current administration for the very thing we are guilty of doing wrong, and then we can take credit for what they are doing right [Remember, how he took credit for the Trump economy?]
  2. b) pontificate with high sounding words that say absolutely nothing
  3. c) cite not a single fact, and
  4. d) provide zero solutions for the problem.

Barack Obama’s words for today are ‘denial’ and ‘consequences.’ First he accused Trump (of course, we all know he meant Trump) of being responsible for denying warnings about the coronavirus. Then he accused Trump of the consequences of denying global warming—a subject that, right now, is on the mind of absolutely no one.

Obama can’t help being a walking public service announcement. When he spoke in Dallas at the funeral of the five police officers who were killed by a black shooter, he digressed from comforting the families to insert a cringe-worthy statement regarding the “African-American community that feels unfairly targeted by police and police departments…”

But today, the worst part did not come from Barack Obama, but from USA Today’s comment about Obama’s tweet: “Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a swipe at President Donald Trump’s initial skepticism of the coronavirus pandemic, a rare rebuff for a President who tends not to weigh in on the work of other Presidents.” How rich!

Rare rebuff? Since he left office, Obama has been blasting Trump openly here in America and overseas. Not to mention the Deep State he left behind—operatives who have sworn their undying allegiance to do everything possible to topple Trump. In its article, USA Today reminded us all that fake new still covers for Obama, no matter what.

Today, Obama again spoke. He spoke with all the dismissive, detached smugness that let him sleep like a baby through the Benghazi attack. He said what didn’t need to be said—in the way it shouldn’t have been said—at the worst possible time to say it.

The only part he got right was this: “All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”  To that, I say, “Amen!”

Today, especially in the throes of the worst death toll of any day in this pandemic, we realize what a blessing it is that Barrack Obama is no longer President.

 

 

Why Obama’s remarks in Dallas matter

 

Why Obama’s remarks in Dallas matter

By Mario Murillo

 

At a memorial for 5 police officers who were killed because they are white, Obama chose to make remarks about how police mistreat blacks.

Ask yourself: if a white president spoke at a funeral for a black man killed by a white police officer and said, “by the way, black men should not resist arrest.”  How would that go over?

I wonder how the families of those fallen officers felt sitting listening to the following statements:

“We also know that centuries of racial discrimination, of slavery, and subjugation, and Jim Crow; they didn’t simply vanish with the law against segregation…we know that bias remains. We know it, whether you are black, or white, or Hispanic, or Asian, or native American, or of Middle Eastern descent, we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point. We’ve heard it at times in our own homes…. No institution is entirely immune, and that includes our police departments. We know this.”

Then he went on to paint an incomplete picture: “if you’re black, you’re more likely to be pulled over or searched or arrested; more likely to get longer sentences; more likely to get the death penalty for the same crime.”

Remember, Obama isn’t just wrong here – he’s being wrong in front of the families of officers killed by a black anti-cop, anti-white racist. Despicable.  Any other human being—possessing a particle of decency—would have seen how astronomically inappropriate and hurtful those remarks were.

5 cops killed in Dallas

DPD Senior Cpl. Lorne Ahrens, age 48, who had been with the department since 2002

DPD Officer Michael Krol, 40, who had been with the department since 2007

DPD Sgt. Michael Smith, 55, a former Army Ranger who had been with the department since 1989

DART Officer Brent Thompson, 43, a former Marine who had been with the department since 2009 (Thompson was the first DART officer to be killed in the line of duty since the department’s inception in 1989.)

DPD Officer Patrick Zamarripa, 32, a former Navy sailor and Iraq War veteran who had been with the department since 2011.

Some of Obama’s most ardent supporters would love to believe he innocently forgot the purpose of this event. The facts are much darker.  As a Spirit-filled Christian Evangelist I discern that darkness.  These hurtful words speak to a malevolent invisible source.  The enemy of all of our souls wants to bring America down.  To do this, the evil one must bring incurable division—Obama’s words moves us further in that direction.  That’s why his words matter.

Obama mentioned himself 54 times in this speech meant to honor others.  He is so passionately in love with the sound of his own voice—so utterly narcissistic about his opinions—all decorum must bow to his essence.

His words in Dallas matter because they show us the man.  Obama can’t imagine his words ever being inappropriate.   He especially believes his rhetoric on race is omnipotent and must be omnipresent.  In his universe, his words are fitting simply because they are his words.

His words in Dallas matter because they drive home a vital truth:  Our nation will not be saved so long as we suffer under Obama’s abuse of power—and God forbid—we should allow it continue in the form of Hillary Clinton.

Some will point to the beautiful words Obama spoke.  Yes, but he trampled those words under foot.  Mr. President, you were charged with honoring the fallen and bringing the nation together.  Instead, like a doctor secretly wanting to kill the patient, you administered medicine in a way that only made things worse.

 

Hillary Clinton Blames Whites and cops

 

Hillary Clinton Blames Whites, Cops for Deaths of Young Black Men

Hillary Clinton used a CNN interview on Friday to completely embrace the Democrats’ claim that white people and cops must change to help reduce the number of African-Americans killed in tense exchanges with cops.

“I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American  families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have ‘The Talk,’ about, you now, how to really protect themselves [from police], when they’re the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police,” Clinton told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

I’m going to be talking to white people, we’re the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries coming from our African-American fellow citizens,” she said.

“We’ve got to figure out what is happening when routine traffic stops, when routine arrests, escalate into killings … Clearly, there seems to be a terrible disconnect between many police departments and officers and the people they have sworn to protect,” she said.

Federal policing guidelines are needed because “we have 18,000 police departments… [some of which need more training to] go after systemic racism, which is a reality, and to go after systemic bias,” she said. 

“We’ve got to start once again respecting and treating each other with the dignity that every person deserves,” she said.

The statement echoed a tweet from Friday morning. 

White Americans need to do a better job of listening when African Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day.

To win in November, Clinton need a high turnout of African-American voters. 

Neither Blitzer nor Clinton suggested that African-American communities have a role in reducing police-encounter deaths, which usually occur in tense engagements between a few cops and a few suspects with extensive criminal histories.

In general, young African-American men are far more likely to commit crimes than young white men, young Asian men or young Latino men. A November 2011 report by the Justice Department showed that young African-American men are just 1 percent of the population, yet are responsible for a disproportionate percentage of murders in the nation. 

Clinton suggested that people who disagree with her agenda are racists. “There is so much more to be done… we can’t be engaging in hateful rhetoric or incitement of violence, we need to be bringing people together … we need more love and kindness.”
