Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?
In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.
As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.
Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.
A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.
The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.
Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.
REALLY, HOW IS DISCUSSING A NUCLEAR IRAN A JOKING MATTER?
The Comedian in Chief is at it again … How sad is it that Barack Obama is only comfortable going on a comedy show to discuss life and death matters like arming Iran with nukes? It is pathetic that a president is allowed to go on a non-serious show with such important topics and lie through his teeth about this lousy deal with Iran. To make matters worse, its not like Stewart is going to confront him on his lies, instead Stewart just makes a joke about it because after all, its a comedy show. How is allowing a radical Islamic, state sponsor of terror country like Iran a laughing matter.
President Barack Obama used a playful environment Tuesday to hit his critics on the Iran nuclear deal.
He said that critics of the deal apparently think, “if you had brought Dick Cheney to the negotiations, everything would be fine,” according to the White House press pool report.
Check out the 6:05 mark of the VIDEO where Jon Stewart may have gotten in the zinger of the night in a not so subtle way as Obama takes a breathe and thinks to himself, its good that he is on my side. Obama says of Iran, “But with respect to Iran, look this is an adversary. They are anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, they sponsor terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. Jon Stewart mockingly replies, “Sounds like a good partner for peace” and then basically laughs in the president’s face. Honestly, that is the Iran nuclear deal in a nutshell. It is no laughing matter that Obama has provided a legal pathway to a nuclear bomb to Iran and yet one just shakes their head as this terrible, terrible and dangerous deal.

Obama Finally Lowers White House Flags to Half Staff 5 Days After 4 US Marines & 1 Navy Sailor Murdered in Terror Attack in Tennessee
IT TOOK LESS THAN 5 HOURS FOR THE OBAMA TO COLOR THE WHITE HOUSE IN RAINBOW COLORS, BUT 5 DAYS TO LOWER THE FLAGS IN HONOR OF THE US MILITARY FALLEN IN CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE.
File this one under, the its about time file. Well America, you voted for a president, not once, but twice, who said he would fundamentally change America. How’s that working out for you? Yesterday, Barack Obama finally ordered the lowering of the American flag to half-staff at the White House and other public buildings. Of course it was only after pressure mounted against him to do so as the president finally ordered the lowering of the flag some 5 days after the terror attack in Chattanooga, TN where 4 US Marines and one Navy sailor was killed. Critics argued that Obama lowered the flag immediately following other mass shootings like Sandy Hook and it was mere hours after the SCOTUS ruled on same sex marriage that Obama had the White House showered in rainbow colors.
President Obama has ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff after mounting criticism over the delay in honoring five armed forces members killed last week by a gunman.
Obama’s proclamation calls for the flags to remain at half-mast through Saturday “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 16.”
“Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the service members killed last week in Chattanooga. We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives,” Obama said in a presidential proclamation released Tuesday.
“We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try to do us harm: We do not give into fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”
Obama announced his decision hours after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol to be flown at half-staff.
Ahead of Obama’s decision, conservatives lined up to pan the president for failing to lower the flag. They noted that various governors around the country have done so and that the White House had lowered its flag after other mass shootings.
It is disgraceful that a Commander in Chief would wait this long to honor fallen military heroes. And only because he was pressured to.
22 Year Old One America News Host Tomi Lahren Tells Obama to “Be A Leader” Following the Death of 4 Marines & One Sailor in Chatanooga, TN
FINAL THOUGHTS FROM LAHREN …
What, you don’t know who Tomi Lahren is? You will after you watch the below VIDEO. The 22 year old has finally said what most Americans have thought and feel. She rips into Obama and the political hacks in Washington, DC and their failed startegy.Talk about being ‘On Pont’ … “‘I’ve had it with this failed strategy – this half-way, half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-Jihadis mentality pushed by this administration. Be a leader!”
“This won’t take long, but it’s important,” she said at the outset of her monologue. “Four United States Marines are now dead. Climate change didn’t kill them. Lack of free community college did not kill them. The income gap, wage inequality — nope, not those things either. Gay marriage? Nope. Oh, white racism? Not that either. So what did? President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will: radical Islam.”

Obama Scolds CBS News Reporter Major Garrett When He is Questioned Why Obama is Content with all the Fan Fair Around the Nuke Deal When 4 Americans Remain in Iran Prisons?
WOW, WATCH OBAMA GET PISSED AS A MEMBER OF THE MEDIA CALLS HIM ON WHY US HOSTAGES ARE STILL IN IRAN PRISONS AFTER OBAMA CAPITULATED ON EVERYTHING TO IRAN …
Watch the VIDEO below and you will see why Barack Obama is a pathetic leader and a small man. CBS News reporter Major Garrett got under Obama’s skin when he questioned why a negotiation was made with Iran for nukes where at the end many concessions were obviously made to the State sponsors of terror, why four Americans remain as hostages in Iran? The reporter asked, why Obama is “content” to spike the football and accept all the fan fair for this deal when Americans remain hostage.
If looks could kill. How dare anyone in the media dare question the Supreme leader, Barack Obama.
The president later took umbrage when CBS News reporter Major Garrett asked why he is “content” the freedom of American prisoners held in Iran was not secured, despite their cases apparently being raised.
“The notion that I am content, as I celebrate, with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails — Major, that’s nonsense, and you should know better,” Obama said, adding: “I’ve met with the families of some of those folks, and nobody’s content.”
The president said teams are working “diligently” to free them, but said tying their freedom to negotiations could create an incentive for Iran to use American prisoners as leverage for concessions.
Obama also acknowledged there will still be “problems with Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism” and other issues — but said to oppose this deal because it doesn’t resolve all those issues “defies logic. It makes no sense.”
Dick Cheney’s Response to Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal, Calls Obama a Liar … “What Obama has done, has in effect, sanctioned the acquisition by Iran of nuclear capability.”
Former Vice-President Dick Cheney appeared on Fox News last night with Sean Hannity responding to the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran. Cheney began by saying, what many people in the United States, Israel and the Middle East were thinking as well, when he stated, “I can’t help but shake my head at what we are seeing here.” Cheney stated that this deal makes ‘actual use of nuclear weapons’ more likely, not less. Cheney then called out Obama and called him a liar when the president said that we have stopped the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Cheney emphatically said, that is a lie”. But what else would you expect from the president who brought us the lie, if you like your healthcare plan and doctor, you can keep them?
As for the nuclear deal with Iran, Cheney called it “a lie” on the part of President Barack Obama to claimed that the accord would stop further nuclear proliferation.
According to Cheney, it is only a matter of time until the countries in the region will find the need to defend themselves from Iran’s nuclear weapons — and the world will be close to how it was nearly 70 years ago when atomic bombs were used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
“What Obama has done, has in effect, sanctioned the acquisition by Iran of nuclear capability. And it can be a few years down the road. It doesn’t make any difference. It’s a matter of months until we’re going to see a situation where other people feel they have to defend themselves by acquiring their own capability,” Cheney said on Fox News Tuesday night. “And that will, in fact, I think put us closer to use — actual use of nuclear weapons than we’ve been at any time since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.”
According to Cheney, he understands what it is like being in the White House and dealing with nuclear problems.
Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Condemns Iran Nuclear Deal … “This is a Bad Mistake of Historic Proportions”
Barack Obama has all but destroyed US relations with one of our greatest allies, Israel …
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded yesterday to the Iran nuke deal brokered by the Obama administration calling it one of the darkest days in world history. Netanyahu stated that the Iran nuke deal “is a bad mistake of historic proportions” and that it “will allow it to continue to pursue its agenda of aggression and terror in the region and in the world.” So who knows better what Iran’s intentions truly are, Barack Obama or Benjamin Netanyahu? The Israel prime minister went on to say that “Israel was not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction” and that Israel “will always defend ourselves.”
Israel and Saudi Arabia wasted no time blasting the nuclear accord with Iran, while many of the world’s leaders — and some of Iran’s immediate neighbors — expressed relief that a deal had been reached.
A fierce critic of the talks from the beginning, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately condemned the deal as details emerged Tuesday morning, telling reporters in Jerusalem that the agreement to curb Iran’s nuclear programs in exchange for an eventual end to sanctions on Tehran was a “stunning historic mistake” under which Iran will get “a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars which will allow it to continue to pursue its agenda of aggression and terror in the region and in the world.”
“Israel was not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction,” he said. “We will always defend ourselves.”
How any American president could make a deal like this with state sponsored terrorism should be grounds for impeachment. Sorry Mr. President, no deal is better than a bad deal. This president has just inflcited Obamacare, nuke style, upon the Middle East and the world. Heaven help us.
Jerusalem Post: Netanyahu, If it weren’t for Israel, Iran would’ve had nukes long ago.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday vowed that the nuclear agreement struck between the major world powers and Iran “is not the last word.”
Speaking before the Knesset to honor the memory of Likud ideological forebear Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the premier said that it was Israel’s vocal opposition to the Iran nuclear program that delayed Tehran’s attainment of the bomb.
“We brought the Iranian issue to the attention of world public opinion,” Netanyahu said. “If it wasn’t for us, there would not have been a discussion about it.”
“If it weren’t for Israel’s efforts, Iran would’ve gained possession of a nuclear weapon a long time ago,” the prime minister said.
This deal was not about US national security or certainly not Israel security or stabilization in the Middle East, it was about the narcissist in Chief, Barack Obama, legacy. Of course I have no idea what he expects or wants his legacy to be, the destruction of the Middle East and terrorism raining down on the world?
Imagine That … Barack Obama Leaves Out “God” & “God Bless America” From 4th of July Weekly Address (VIDEO)
Of course this should come as a shock to none …
During this weekends 4th of July presidential address, Barack Obama remembered to talk about grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, reminded us it was Maliah’s birthday, referenced the Declaration, thanked those who defend America, cheered on Team USA, woman’s World Cup soccer team, but seemed to miss something rather important at the end. How does one do a weekly address about America’s independence and not say, God Bless America? You know damn well he read this from a teleprompter, so either the words were loaded in there or they weren’t. If not, wouldn’t one think that Obama could ad lib and add them to his weekly address? I guess not. With no more elections left, I guess he feels the need not to say it anymore.
So Obama referenced during his address that our founding patriots declared our independence, proclaiming that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I guess we know longer call them Our Founding Fathers. This was a rather interesting comment as Obama said, “And it’s been the work of each successive generation to keep this founding creed safe by making sure its words apply to every single American.” Note to Obama, you said American … not illegal immigrant.
“Remarks of President Barack Obama
The White House
July 4, 2015
Happy Fourth of July, everybody. Like many of you, Michelle, Sasha, Malia, and I are going to spend the day outdoors, grilling burgers and dogs, and watching the fireworks with our family and friends. It’s also Malia’s birthday, which always makes the Fourth extra fun for us.
As always, we’ve invited some very special guests to our backyard barbecue – several hundred members of our military and their families. On this most American of holidays, we remember that all who serve here at home and overseas, represent what today is all about. And we remember that their families serve, too. We are so grateful for their service and for their sacrifice.
We remember as well that this is the day when, 239 years ago, our founding patriots declared our independence, proclaiming that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
A couple of centuries later, we have made ourselves into a big, bold, dynamic, and diverse country. We are of all races, we come from all places, we practice all faiths, and believe in all sorts of different ideas. But our allegiance to this declaration – this idea – is the creed that binds us together. It’s what, out of many, makes us one.
And it’s been the work of each successive generation to keep this founding creed safe by making sure its words apply to every single American. Folks have fought, marched, protested, even died for that endeavor, proving that as Americans, our destiny is not written for us, but by us.
We honor those heroes today. We honor everyone who continually strives to make this country a better, stronger, more inclusive, and more hopeful place. We, the people, pledge to make their task our own – to secure the promise of our founding words for our own children, and our children’s children.
And finally, what better weekend than this to cheer on Team USA – good luck to the U.S. Women’s National Team in the World Cup Final!
Thanks, everybody. From my family to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July.”
EXIT QUESTION: Are hotdogs and hamburgers allowed on Michelle Obama’s approved lunch foods?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … OBAMA GOES GOLFING ON THE LUSH GREENS IN PALM SPRINGS IN THE MIDST OF A DROUGHT IN CALI?
Could Barack Obama be more of an uncaring, elitists hypocrite? It is well documented that this man has some type of mental obsession when it comes to playing golf as he has provided some of the worst optics of any president, especially rushing to play golf following his address to the nation the day after video of James Foley being beheaded by ISIS. Now, in the midst of California’s terrible drought, where water restrictions are in place and people are being fined for the over-use of water, the Golfer in Chief headed to Palm Springs to play golf for the weekend. ARE YOU JOKING? As the Washington Times aptly states, it is par for the course! Obama swoops into drought-ravaged Calif. for golf weekend.
Where is the liberal LEFT and the environmental-wackos losing their minds over this? Their beloved Obamamessiah playing golf on the biggest waste of water going? Image if he were a Republican what the hue & cry would be. Honestly, he just doesn’t care and the rules do not apply to King Obama. He would tell you to sacrifice, but not for thee.
With four fund-raisers and an awkward reconciliation with the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, behind him, President Obama returned to a beloved golf oasis here for a weekend getaway with friends.
This time, though, was different. A punishing drought has raised questions about whether such oases can survive, and about the president’s weekend here.
The vast emerald green courses in the area are watered by a disappearing Colorado River and an underground aquifer that has fallen about 55 feet since 1970.
While environmentalists generally support the president, some grumbled that he needed to take up a new hobby or indulge it someplace else.
“President Obama needs to take a mulligan and rethink golfing in Palm Springs in the middle of a drought,” said Erich Pica, the president of Friends of the Earth, using a golfing term that refers to a do-over after a bad shot. “It takes copious amounts of water to maintain a golf course, and it just sends the wrong message to the people of California just as they are being asked to cut back on water use.”
Meanwhile, on Father’s Day, Michelle Obama, Sasha and Malia were no where to be found as they were in Europe. Another fantastic optic.
Bill O’Reilly Talking Points Blasts Barack Obama, Pelosi and Reid For Their Failure in War on Terror
Bill O’Reilly blasted President Barack Obama for his weak foreign policy and the dire consequences it has created in the Middle East, Europe the Far East and across the world. O’Reilly called it a perfect storm of weakness. What happened to Obama’s promise to downgrade terrorism as he seems to make climate change a more important topic than terrorism? Obama’s lack of leadership, the most reluctant leader this country has ever seen, has been the focal point of why evil has been on the rise. Bill O’Reilly stated, “by withholding American power abroad, the president is plunging the world into a very dark place. When order collapses, so does civilized society.”
Bill O’Reilly ended his rant by saying, “God help the next president of the United States.” I would go one further and say, God help the citizens of the United States.
War and Peace in the United States
He ripped Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi for “saying various thing that make absolutely no sense at all” while ISIS is growing in power in the Middle East.
O’Reilly went through all the unintended consequences of Obama’s weak foreign policy, which includes China’s expansion and Vladimir Putin feeling he can just walk all over the United States. O’Reilly said he’s “simply aghast that American foreign policy is so bad.”
“By withholding American power abroad,” he concluded, “the president is plunging the world into a very dark place. When order collapses, so does civilized society, and we are seeing that all over this planet.”
