Obama Told Ferguson Race Hustlers At WH Meeting: ‘Stay On Course’

The term Stay the courseas popularized by Presidents George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan means to pursue an objective regardless of any obstacles or criticism in times of war. The opposite term, “cut and run” is an accurate descriptor for Obama’s war time strategy. But what Obama lacks as a Commander in Chief, he more than makes up for as Community Organizer in Chief.

At a White House meeting with a group of race hustlers one day after the midterm shellacking, the president used the phrase “stay on course” in reference to the racial battle that is being waged in one of our nation’s cities.

Attendees at that meeting included Al Sharpton,  NAACP president Cornell Brooks, National Urban League president Marc Morial.

At the time, a White House official gave a bland statement regarding the meeting, saying that it “included a discussion of ObamaCare implementation, education, and criminal justice issues.”

“The president also highlighted how we are looking forward to working with the leaders over the next two years to advance these and other critical issues facing the country,” the official said.

In Sunday’s New York Times, more details emerged.

According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”

Yes certainly – let’s do all we can to keep the peace even as fellow organizer Lisa Fithian is called in to help organize the protests and create chaos.

The regime’s extortion racket has kicked in – as the threat of a race war in Ferguson Missouri looms,  some definite objectives are being pursued by the racial grievance industry.

Protest leaders said wholesale change was ultimately what they were demanding, though not all agreed on what that meant. Some called for the removal of the Ferguson police chief or the entire department. Others said they want the police to wear cameras; civilian review boards for all police shootings; or a requirement that ethnic and racial makeup of police departments match the communities they serve.

“It must be changing how police and citizens relate to one another,” said Michael T. McPhearson, the co-chairman of the Don’t Shoot Coalition. “We’re calling for police accountability, police transparency, changing how the police do their work. If there’s an indictment or if there’s not an indictment, we still have that work to do.”

Via Katie Pavlich: Townhall: EXCLUSIVE: In Scathing Letter to Obama, Former FBI Assistant Director Slams Holder as “Chief Among Antagonists” in Ferguson:

Former FBI Assistant Director and Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund President Ron Hosko sends “a scathing letter to President Obama detailing the damage done to the relationship between law enforcement and DOJ over the past six years.”

“The hyper-politicization of justice issues has made it immeasurably more difficult for police officers to simply do their jobs. The growing divide between the police and the people – perhaps best characterized by protesters in Ferguson, Mo., who angrily chanted, “It’s not black or white. It’s blue!” – only benefits of members of a political class seeking to vilify law enforcement for other societal failures. This puts our communities at greater risk, especially the most vulnerable among us,” Hosko wrote in the letter exclusively obtained by Townhall. “Your attorney general, Eric Holder, is chief among the antagonists. During his tenure as the head of the Department of Justice, Mr. Holder claims to have investigated twice as many police and police departments as any of his predecessors. Of course, this includes his ill-timed decision to launch a full investigation into the Ferguson Police Department at the height of racial tensions in that community, throwing gasoline on a fire that was already burning. Many officers were disgusted by such a transparent political maneuver at a time when presidential and attorney general leadership could have calmed a truly chaotic situation.”

‘Bout time someone said it.

Sens. Cruz and Lee: AG Nominee Should Say Whether She Approves of Executive Amnesty (Updated)

download (1)

Obama’s pick of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder (the most corrupt Attorney General in American history) is surprisingly uncontroversial. She is respected by Republicans and Democrats alike and has no known scandals in her background. If there is anything about her that would be disqualifying – it hasn’t been discovered yet. 

But Republicans plan to ask her a question in which a wrong answer would be considered disqualifying.

Via Breitbart News:

Cruz, Lee, incoming Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, each said before the election that Obama’s choice to replace Holder must denounce Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

McConnell said that it should be a “condition” of the nominee’s confirmation that they oppose executive amnesty.

Today Sens. Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Mike Lee, R-UT, released the following statement in regards to the president’s nomination of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

“President Obama’s Attorney General nominee deserves fair and full consideration of the United States Senate, which is precisely why she should not be confirmed in the lame duck session of Congress by senators who just lost their seats and are no longer accountable to the voters. The Attorney General is the President’s chief law enforcement officer. As such, the nominee must demonstrate full and complete commitment to the law. Loretta Lynch deserves the opportunity to demonstrate those qualities, beginning with a statement whether or not she believes the President’s executive amnesty plans are constitutional and legal.”

UPDATE:

I spoke too soon. It has been discovered that Obama’s pick to replace Eric Holder is indeed a race-baiting fellow traveler. We were wrong to imagine Obama was capable of appointing a straight shooter.

Should have realized after seeing this, Did Al Sharpton Just Pick The Next Attorney General?

Via Pundit Press: Obama AG Nominee Lynch: Southern Schools Use Zero Tolerance Policies to Send Minorities to Prison:

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came near the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States, first covering the fact that she see voter ID laws as legislation aimed to disenfranchise minorities.

Disturbing Halloween Display of Black Family Being Lynched Taken Down After Complaints

hanging-1-620x400

A shocking Halloween display at a house located on the military base in Fort Campbell, Ky. turned some heads, earlier this week. It was taken down after Ft. Campbell Public Affairs received a report of the “offensive” display.

A ClarksvilleNow.com reader sent a photo of the display, which shows what appears to be a black family hanging from a tree in a yard on Litwin St.

The child in the display has a knife in its back and one of the figures holds a sign that is not legible in the photo.

Fort Campbell Public Affairs said they are aware of the display and have since had it taken down from the yard.

Reportedly, the occupant removed the display after being made aware of the “concerns of the community.”

According to Brendalyn Carpenter, a Public Affairs official, “it was her understanding that the display was not intended to be offensive.” She said the occupant,  whose race and sex were not specified, did extend an apology about the decorations.

It’s hard to imagine what would possess someone to create a display like that. It’s harder still to imagine how someone would not know it was offensive and upsetting.

“Displays of an offensive nature are not reflective of Army values and the family-friendly environment provided for employees and residents of the Fort Campbell community,” Carpenter said.

The point of this holiday, as I see it, is to confront the scary things in life by making fun of them and then getting wasted on sugar. But every October, local news stations across the country comes up with a story about someone’s Halloween display causing neighbors to complain because they’ve “gone too far.” This year’s winner comes from Pittsburgh, where a display that includes baby dolls with bullet holes in their heads is, um, what? There to encourage trick-or-treating? C’mon, dude. It’s a little much. Adult corpses are great. Dead babies, not so much.

That guy in Pittsburgh is seriously demented…

 

No Apologies, And No One To Be Held Accountable For “Chickensh*t” Comment

The guessing game has begun as to who in the Obama Regime told Obama toadie Jeffrey Goldberg Netanyahu was recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, “Aspergery” and chickenshit. 

On that front, it’s worth noting that the person being repeatedly being called “chickenshit” by  anonymous officials volunteered for the Israeli Defense Force, saw combat, and was the leader of an elite special-forces unit deployed on numerous missions, including the freeing of hijacked Sabena Flight in 1972, where he was shot. Granted, this might not be as courageous as hopping the Amtrak from Delaware to DC each day or rallying the troops at a fundraiser in Greenwich, but God knows we can’t all be heroes.

The worst part of the insults was the gloating over how the Regime pressured and bullied Israel into living with a nuclear Iran.

This official agreed that Netanyahu is a ‘chickenshit’ on matters related to the comatose peace process, but added that he’s also a ‘coward’ on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat. The official said the Obama administration no longer believes that Netanyahu would launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in order to keep the regime in Tehran from building an atomic arsenal. ‘It’s too late for him to do anything. Two, three years ago, this was a possibility. But ultimately he couldn’t bring himself to pull the trigger. It was a combination of our pressure and his own unwillingness to do anything dramatic. Now it’s too late.’

Now, it’s too late. They’re actually proud of themselves. Do these children even know what they have done?

The Regime is not denying the story is true, nor are they interested in punishing the person or persons who have characterized the Israeli Prime Minister in insulting and scatological terms. Nor are they interested in apologizing to Netanyahu or Israel for the insults.

They seem to be pleased that the story was leaked.

Via Truth Revolt:

Earnest was asked if he had yet been able to determine if in fact the quote was even accurate. He has not, but that didn’t stop him from making sure that everyone knows that Goldberg is super reliable and knows lots of people, so it probably is.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: Have you been able to determine whether or not that comment was even made?

Earnest: I have not, Jim. I don’t say that to question the reporting of somebody like Mr. Goldberg, who obviously is a very well-respected journalist here in Washington. He’s somebody that has a lot of sources inside the administration. So, I didn’t come here seeking to undermine his reporting.

He was also asked if the White House has any intention of looking into who might have said this and punishing them in some way, as they have done before. Nope.

Another WFB Al Sharpton Supercut

Those miscreants at the Washington Free Beacon really need to stop picking on Al Sharpton. It’s mean-spirited and it’s wrong. Ed Schultz is equally ridiculous and embarrassing – but you don’t see the wise guys WFB attacking Shultz every other day. I can think of only one reason for this – RAAAAAcism.

They should be ashamed of themselves. I know I’m ashamed of myself for ROTFL.

Race Baiters Jump To Blame Ebola Death On Racism While MSM Ignores The Real Reason

It begins:

Jesse Jackson Thinks “White Privilege” Led To Death Of Ebola Patient…

Surprising Absolutely No One, Jesse Jackson And Ebola Patient’s Nephew Say Racism A Factor In His Death…

Dallas County’s Dem Commissioner Blames Racism For Death Of Ebola Patient…

SJL: Death Of Ebola Patient Who Came Here Knowing He Had Virus A “Tragedy,” Hints He Was Delayed Treatment…

CNN SUGGESTS RACISM BEHIND DEATH OF DALLAS EBOLA PATIENT

Besides the obvious fact that the race card is always thrown down at every and any opportunity during an election year, what else could be going on, here?

Michelle Malkin is on it:

What was the real reason Thomas Eric Duncan was turned away when he went to the hospital for the first time? Initial headlines last week indicated that there was a   procedural flaw in the online health records system at  Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital which had led to the key miscommunication between nurses and doctors.

The facility sent Ebola victim Thomas Duncan home despite his showing signs of the disease — only to admit him with worse symptoms three days later.

Hospital officials, who came forward “in the interest of transparency,” initially blamed work-flow and information-sharing problems for the botch. “Protocols were followed by both the physician and the nurses,” the statement noted. “However, we have identified a flaw in the way the physician and nursing portions of our electronic health records interacted in this specific case.”

Mysteriously, after taking special care to get their facts straight before releasing the statement, the hospital backed off a day later. The very specific communications flaw in the medical-records software — which apparently had prevented some staff from accessing Duncan’s travel history from Liberia — suddenly disappeared.

What really happened?

Here’s what I can tell you for sure: Texas Health contracts with Epic Systems for its electronic-medical-records system — and the Dallas hospital isn’t the only client that has complained about its costly information-sharing flaws and interoperability failures.

Epic was founded by billionaire Judy Faulkner, a top Obama donor whose company is the dominant EMR player in the U.S. health-care market. As I reported last year, Epic employees donated nearly $1 million to political parties and candidates between 1995 and 2012 — 82 percent of it to Democrats. The company’s top ten PAC recipients are all Democratic or left-wing outfits, from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (nearly $230,000) to the DNC Services Corporation (nearly $175,000) and the America’s Families First Action Fund super PAC ($150,000).

Faulkner, an influential Obama campaign-finance bundler, served as an adviser to David Blumenthal. He’s the White House health-information-technology guru in charge of dispensing the federal electronic-medical-records subsidies that Faulkner pushed President Obama to adopt. Faulkner also served on the same committee Blumenthal chaired.

Cozy arrangement, that.

Speaking of cozy arrangements – Malkin notes that Epic got billions in federal subsidies under the 2009 Obama stimulus package.

Read the whole thing, here.  You can blame this fiasco on an inept Obama-friendly company that would probably have gone belly up by now if not for the cozy arrangement it has with the government.

As usual, the truth is being suppressed while a toxic left-wing narrative is being allowed to take root.

Now that a sheriff’s deputy is showing “signs and symptoms of Ebola” after spending a half an hour in Duncan’s apartment, I wonder if Jesse Jackson will have anything to say on his behalf?

First responders have transported a Dallas County Sheriff’s deputy to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital to be monitored as a possible second case of Ebola.

The patient, Michael Monnig, was transported from a Frisco Care Now facility where he was complaining of “stomach issues,” according to sources.

According to CBS 11’s Andrea Lucia, Monnig’s children said he woke up this morning feeling sore and a little nauseated.  He went to clinic as a precaution.

****

Monning was not one of the 48 people being monitored by federal, state and local health officials because he never had direct contact with the patient.  Monnig did enter the apartment where Duncan stayed after Duncan had been admitted to the hospital.

“He was in the apartment for 30 minutes, which we were told is no chance to contact the virus,” said Logan.

“We were told – we were told…”

 

  The clinic reported that he was “exhibiting signs and symptoms of Ebola.”

Confirmed: ISIS Fighters Have Returned To The US From Syria And The FBI Are Looking For Them

Last week, The Washington Free Beacon reported that Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned in a speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside ISIS had already returned to the United States.

Today via Time - confirmation. During a news briefing with reporters, an Obama Regime official said that a number of these radicalized fighters have indeed returned to the United States.

During a briefing for reporters Monday in the ornate Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the Administration’s efforts to address the issue of so-called foreign terrorist fighters, the official said that the latest assessment from National Counterterrorism Center is that more than 100 Americans have attempted to fight in Iraq and Syria alongside ISIS, the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusra Front or other groups.

“It includes those who’ve gone, those who’ve tried to go, some who’ve come back and are under active—the FBI is looking at them,” the official said. “These are FBI matters, I refer you to them on specifics.”

It marked the first official government confirmation that at least some of the Americans fighting alongside the Islamist extremist group have returned to the U.S. As late as Monday morning, Secretary of State John Kerry said on MSNBC that “we have over 100 fighters there from America,” leaving out any mention of Americans who have returned.

Last week, Democrats in the Senate blocked Republican efforts to seize the passports of Americans fighting with terrorists overseas.

The Obama official would not discuss the specific measures the United States uses to keep Americans who have fought alongside ISIS from returning to the U.S. “This is worked on a case by case basis,” the official said, “I defer to the FBI.”
