Revealed: Obama the Racist

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.

Watch the video here.


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on CNN Tuesday attempted to shift the blame for the disastrous handling of the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya from the Obama administration onto Republican lawmakers, arguing they withheld $300 million in funding that could have provided much-needed security at the consulate.

Appearing on Wolf Blitzer’s CNN show, Pelosi also said calls coming from the GOP to investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi are likely politically motivated.

“So, are you saying this is political from their perspective,” Blitzer asked the congresswoman.

“One might suspect that,” she replied.

Blitzer began the segment by reading part of the letter sent by Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today, in which the lawmakers argue that numerous requests for increased security were rejected by the Secretary of State.

Nigeria: Devout Muslims slaughter 26 University Students, 40 people shot or stabbed

The BBC buried the lede. The BBC’s last sentence should be the lede: “fighting to establish Islamic law in Nigeria and has killed more than 1,000 people in numerous attacks across northern and central areas this year.” Boko Haram (Arabic translation “books bad” or “Western education is haram”) is the devout Muslim group on a jihad to impose the shari’a in Nigeria.

Nigerian gunmen kill Mubi students BBC

At least 20 people, mostly students, have been killed by unknown gunmen in Mubi, north-eastern Nigeria, officials say. Most of the dead are said to have attended the Federal Polytechnic Mubi. A college spokesman said 26 students had been killed, while a local resident told the BBC that more than 40 people had been shot dead or stabbed.

The killings come days after a major operation against the Boko Haram militant group in the town.

National Emergency Management Agency spokesman Yushua Shuaib told the Reuters news agency that it was not clear whether the attack was the work of Boko Haram, or the result of a dispute between rival political groups at the university. A Red Cross official said at least 10 people had died, reports the AFP news agency.

BBC Nigeria correspondent Will Ross says mobile phone masts in the area were recently attacked by the militants, so getting information from Mubi is difficult.

‘Everybody is scared’

A resident, who did not want his name to be used, told the BBC’s Hausa service that men in military uniform went to a hall of residence away from the campus just before midnight, got the students out of their rooms and ordered them to say their names. Some were then shot dead and others stabbed with knives, and their bodies left in lines outside the buildings.

“Everybody is scared,” he said.

He added that students were now leaving the town, many with tree branches over their cars – a traditional sign of neutrality in Nigeria.

Other Mubi residents say they heard gunfire for about two hours during the night and that those living near the hostel were also targeted. The authorities have imposed an indefinite curfew in the town and ordered residents to stay indoors. The university has been temporarily closed.

Last week, the Nigerian military carried out an operation in Mubi and arrested dozens of people over suspected links to Boko Haram.

Black Mobs Continue Their Violence Around The U.S.

Even the old-timers in Detroit never have seen anything like this: A mob of 40 black people moved into a convenience store and will not leave.

They say they now own it. They eat. Smoke. Cuss.Threaten. Spit. Rob. Sell drugs. All on video.

Police, ministers, neighbors, the store owner and just about everyone else seems powerless to stop them.

“It’s a Bad Crew gas station,” said one of the mob to the local Fox affiliate. “If you don’t know what that is, I can’t even tell you.”

The owner calls police, but nothing happens. The police “come here and then they leave. Two minutes later they (the mob) are back.”

Earlier this month, members of the Perfecting Church, one of Detroit’s largest black congregations, counseled the members of the mob to stop their evil ways.

Nothing changed. Which is not all that surprising: In June, the church’s pastor, Marvin Winans, lost a $15,000 Rolex, a Louis Vuitton wallet with $200 in it and his 2012 Infiniti QX56 SUV after he was carjacked by a mob of 10 black people at a similar convenience store nearby.

See the Big List of black mob violence.

This is the same pastor who gave the eulogy for Whitney Houston. The attackers, Winans told the Detroit News, did not know who he was.

Biden: We Have Buried the Middle Class

Vice President Biden said Tuesday that the middle class has been “buried the last four years” — a practically gift-wrapped gaffe that Republicans immediately grabbed to hammer President Obama on the eve of the first presidential debate.

Biden made the remark at a campaign stop in Charlotte, N.C., in the course of slamming Republican tax policies which Democrats claim would cut taxes for the rich and hike them for the middle class.

“This is deadly earnest,” Biden said. “How they can justify — how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that’s been buried the last four years. How in the lord’s name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts?”

Mitt Romney, it turns out, couldn’t agree more with the first part.

He tweeted: “Agree with @JoeBiden, the middle class has been buried the last 4 years, which is why we need a change in November #CantAfford4More.”

Running mate Paul Ryan echoed, saying at a rally in Iowa that “we need to stop digging” and elect Romney.

Both the Romney campaign and The Republican National Committee got to work blasting out a clip of the comment Tuesday afternoon, in what the Obama campaign decried as a “desperate and out-of-context attack.”

But Republicans used the remark to hammer home claims that Obama’s economic policies have hurt the middle class, in advance of a debate where the economy is sure to feature prominently.

An RNC official told “Joe Biden said what so many Americans are feeling every day. For four years, the middle class has been buried by Obama’s failed policies from higher taxes to more debt which is why he has a difficult time explaining why he deserves another term in the White House.”

Medical Doctors Prefer Romney, Want ObamaCare Repealed

A new survey finds that physicians prefer Mitt Romney to Barack Obama in the presidential race, 55%-36%. Jackson & Coker, a division of Jackson Healthcare, the third largest healthcare staffing company in the country, conducted the study.

The study featured 3,660 participants from 50 states in a self-selected online survey. Physicians identified themselves as 24% Democrat, 35% Republican, 26% Independent, 6% Libertarian, and 7% Unaffiliated. Of those surveyed, 72% were male and 28% were female. The margin of error for the survey, at the 95% confidence level, is 1.6%.

Regarding the survey results, Sandy Garrett, president of Jackson & Coker, said, “Doctors are highly motivated this year to have their voice heard, particularly after passage of the Affordable Care Act. No doubt, the health care law has stirred many passions in the medical community.”

Of the physicians who participated in the study, 55% responded that ObamaCare should be repealed and replaced, while 40% said the law should be implemented and improved.

Women physicians were more likely to support President Obama, as well as physicians employed by hospitals and health systems. The latter is a predictable outcome since doctors who either own, or retain ownership in, a practice are essentially small businesses. Hospitals and health systems, on the contrary, will ultimately benefit from ObamaCare.

Specialists, particularly psychiatrists, pediatricians, and behavioral medicine doctors, tended to support President Obama in the study. Anesthesiologists, surgeons, radiologists, and ophthalmologists were more likely to say they would vote for Romney.

Support for the president has declined since 2008, when Obama received 40% of medical doctors’ votes compared to 44% for John McCain. Physician turnout for the 2012 election is expected to surpass that in 2008. Eight percent of those surveyed said they did not vote in 2008, but only one percent said they would not vote this November.

Silencing Those Opposed to Same-Sex Marriage Is ‘Un-American’

Baltimore Raven’s center Matt Birk is attracting attention over a controversial article he published in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. In it, the player offered his support for free speech and voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Birk opened the piece by issuing his support for the National Football League’s policy that allows players to share their personal views on matters of social and political importance. However, he quickly dove into the debate surrounding gay marriage, highlighting what he sees as inconsistencies and a false framing of the issue as a whole.

“But the conversation during the last few weeks on the subject of same-sex marriage has told a different story — one that appears to be drawing a false connection between supporting true American values like free speech and the institution of marriage, our most fundamental and important social institution,” he wrote.

The purpose of his article is plainly laid out in its third paragraph, in which Birk explains that he intends to discuss “what the marriage debate is and is not about” and clarify the fact that not all NFL players believe that gay marriage is a “good” societal phenomenon. At the center of the debate, Birk claims that marriage between a man and a woman is “privileged and recognized by society as ‘marriage’” because of the institution’s value to children. He explains:

Obama adviser admits: ‘We need death panels’

A top Democrat strategist and donor who served as President Obama’s lead auto-industry adviser recently conceded that the rationing of heath services under Obamacare is “inevitable.”

Steven Rattner advocated that such rationing should target elderly patients, while stating, “We need death panels.”

Rattner serves on the board the New America Foundation, or NAF, a George Soros-funded think tank that was instrumental in supporting Obamacare in 2010. Soros’ son, financier Jonathan Soros, is also a member of the foundation’s board.

Rattner was the so-called “car czar,” the lead auto adviser to the Treasury Department under Obama.

Last month, Rattner penned an opinion piece in the New York Times titled “Beyond Obamacare” in which he proclaimed “We need death panels” and argued rationing must be instructed to sustain Obama’s health-care plan. His comments have been virtually ignored by traditional media as the president campaign’s for a second term.

“We need death panels,” began Rattner. “Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health-care resources more prudently – rationing, by its proper name – the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”
