Yet another side of Racism …

Let me start out by saying I am not a racist.  I try my very best to always judge people individually … based on their actions, their character, their personal integrity, and how they treat me.  I have had black friends, Lebanese friends, Korean friends, Chinese friends, American Indian friends, and other friends of many different races and nationalities I did not even know about.  The popular new idea among many liberals (especially from Minnesota) is that all Whites are racist … they can’t help it.  It is part of their ancestry.  Now … that is a racist idea if I ever heard one!!

I remember when former President, Bill Clinton, was labeled “the first Black President” by the liberal press!  Hmmm!  What was that all about?

So … what about Obama?  Is he the really true first black President?  If so, is being black simply a matter of skin color?

Should I actually be a true racist (according to Ayn Rand‘s definition) and judge Obama … strictly on the basis of his 50% black ancestry?  Well … I guess that would actually make him kind of gray … because he is only half black.

Or, should I actually judge him based on his failed policies, corrupt political dealings, unconstitutional shadow-government-based administration, and wanton wasting of my tax dollars, etc. … and risk being called a racist by liberal race-baiters?

Actually, I think I agree with a post I read on a blog by UT Professor, Harold Black  … who from what I can tell is a very intelligent black conservative … that says that Obama is black simply as a matter of political convenience.

If we are supposed to judge folks by their actions, character, habits, etc. …. this is really not too much of a stretch.  It is only if we judge Obama racially … on his color … that we have a racial problem.

Wasn’t he, after all,  raised by his white grandparents?  Didn’t he go to mostly white private schools? Didn’t he graduate from Columbia and Harvard? When did he actually become black?  Perhaps,as Harold Black says, it was when he decided to run for political office.  While I disagree that Obama is very smart … he is indeed very clever.  Those two qualities are not the same.  Obama probably did figure out that being black was his best chance to be elected to political office.

So for Barack Obama, I think I agree … his new-found blackness is simply a matter of convenience.

Is Obama a friend of black people.  Unemployment among blacks has sky-rocketed under Obama.  And … who are Obama’s people anyway?  Are they Bernanke, Geithner, Romer  Axelrod, Plouffe, Volcker, Emanuel, Gibbs, and Carney?  Not a black person among them I can see.  I do not think Obama is a friend to black people.  In fact, truthfully, many black people have been adversely affected by Obama’s socialist ideology-driven policies.  There are many black people I really respect like Alan West, Condaleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, and Hallerin Hilton Hill who would, I think agree, with that premise.  I do suspect that … if Obama were white … we would be seeing many blacks rioting in the street.

It is kind of funny in away! As Mr. Black noted, you simply do not find many blacks in key positions in Obama’s administration!  President Bush did have Colin Powel and Condaleeza Rice.  I had great respect for Colin Powell as a military man … until he became a politician, fell under Obama’s spell, and switched allegiance.  Condaleeza Rice is one smart lady and a true credit to her race … that is if you measure her based on intelligence, character, work ethic, and personal integrity.  I suppose race baiters would call her a Race Traitor, an Auntie Tom, or maybe an Oreo … who knows?

But wait … you say; “Obama has lots of black supporters!”

Well yes!  I know he does … or at least it seems that way on the surface.  Race-baiters like Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, Van Jones, and Al Sharpton (and their followers) support Obama.  But these guys also know that their wealth and their personal success are closely tied to keeping the un-washed masses brain-washed and drinking the cool aid!  This is accomplished by attacking the so-called one percent (while … trying to keep you from waking up and remembering they are actually members of “one percent” group) and, of course,  the republicans.

Playing this race card is simply a means to shift the focus; an attempt to lay the blame on successful, hard-working  Americans … people who it is easy to be jealous of; rather than on the democrats and Obama … who are busy growing government,  destroying jobs,  and preventing needed reforms that would spur economic growth and a recovery that would benefit all people.

I think in another time and in another place; some blacks (like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) would have been calling Obama … the Oreo.

Left-Wing Progressives: Domestic Enemies

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

~Edmund Burke

 

I live in East Tennessee where you can still find some honest, hardworking, conservative, blue-dog democrats.  Some of them are my friends.  It is sad for me … because for some reason, they cannot see that the Democratic Party they currently belong to is not the same Democratic Party their fathers and their grandfathers belonged to.  Over the last several years it has become very obvious that the Democratic Party has been taken over by the Liberal-Progressive Movement, which is simply a modern, sexier version of the Communist Party.

Many of you are too young to remember when the Communist Agenda was read before Congress back in the late 1960’s.  In this agenda, it was clearly stated that a goal of the communist party was to infiltrate one or both of America’s political parties.

Most folks have heard of Van Jones; Obama’s former green czar.  Van Jones is a self-confessed communist and a follower of George Soros.  Jones stated in 1992 that, “The Democratic Party has been purchased by the Communist Party.”  Van Jones is truly a snake, hiding his true agenda behind a red, white & blue cloaked American Dream campaign.

The heart and soul of the Democratic Party has been purchased over the last few decades with money provided by George Soros through the set up and use of 501C3 organizations such as Media Matters, MoveOn.Org, OneAmerica, and the Center for American Progress.

George Soros is a progressive, left-wing billionaire who currently resides in New York City.  A large part of Soros’ many billions-of-dollars fortune has come from manipulating other nation’s currencies and capitalizing on the resulting crisis.  Kinds of an odd thing for such a “benevolent” supporter of the unwashed masses to do … don’t you think?  During the 1997 Asian financial crisis, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad accused him of bringing down the nation’s currency through his trading activities, and in Thailand he was labeled an “economic war criminal.”  Soros is known as “The Man who broke the Bank of England,” for initiating a British financial crisis by dumping 10 billion sterling, and forcing the devaluation of the currency. Soros profited $1 billion on that one.  There is also speculation that George Soros may have used insider information to hedge a bet of $1 billion at 10 to 1 odds that the U.S. would lose its AAA credit rating.

Soros was recently termed “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.”  He has given vast sums of money (over $7 billion) to radical progressive left-wing causes including ACORN, the Center for American Progress, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women.  Soros would like nothing more than to see America controlled by world organizations like the UN, the World Bank, and the IMF; and he is the sponsor of the “Open Borders” campaign.  Can you say “New World Order?”

Media Matters, founded by David Brock, is a politically progressive media watchdog supposedly dedicated to “fairness” in the media reporting.  It is interesting to note that, not surprisingly, all the “unfair” media outlets, according to Media Matters, are conservative.  Media Matters is most known for its openly-declared War on Fox News and conservatives in general. Liberal-Progressive donors to the Communist (oops … my bad!  Democratic) Party gave Media Matters $2 million.  MoveOn.Org and the New Democratic Network have also contributed funding. George Soros gave Media Matters $1 million in 2010.

MoveOn.Org was formed in 1998 in response to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.  It is a “progressive” public policy advocacy group and political action committee that has raised millions of dollars for candidates it identifies as “progressives” in the United States. George Soros gave $1.46 million to MoveOn.Org.  MoveOn.Org is most infamous for its comparison of George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler and its “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” ads. Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have both asserted that MoveOn.Org basically owns the Democratic Party and that George Soros owns MoveOn.Org.  This claim stems from an email composed by Eli Pariser (Board President for MoveOn.Org), and others, stating that, in regards to the Democratic Party: “Grassroots contributors like us … bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back.”

OneAmerica (and its PAC OneAmericaVotes) became famous when it was discovered that OneAmerica Votes (OAV) was using illegal aliens as campaign workers manning phone banks and going door-to-door. This group was formerly known as “Hate Free Zone” and is a Seattle-based “immigrant’s rights” group that is tied to George Soros’ “Open Borders” campaign.  Although this group was clearly raising and spending massive sums of money to influence state election campaigns, it did not register with the PDC or report its receipts and expenditures.  Major illegal!  According to their funding report, you will find that George Soros and the SEIU are contributors to this organization.

Center for American Progress is headed by John Podesta, White House chief of staff under President Clinton.  The Center for American Progress has been instrumental in providing progressive talking points and policy positions for the Obama administration.  There has also been a revolving door between the White House and the Soros-funded think tank, with Obama staffing his administration with many CAP officials

It is interesting to note that 501C3 organizations, such as these, are tax exempt charities, and are PROHIBITED by law from campaigning on the behalf of any candidate for political office, lobbying to influence legislation, or breaking the law or encouraging people to break the law (such as by hiring illegal aliens):

Political Campaign Activity

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise tax.

Lobbying Activity

In general, no organization may qualify for section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying)…

An organization will be regarded as attempting to influence legislation if it contacts, or urges the public to contact, members or employees of a legislative body for the purpose of proposing, supporting, or opposing legislation, or if the organization advocates the adoption or rejection of legislation.

Activities that are Illegal or Contrary to Public Policy

Violation of constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC 501(c)(3). As a matter of trust law, one of the main sources of the general law of charity, planned activities that violate laws are not in furtherance of a charitable purpose…

Thus, all charitable trusts (and by implication all charitable organizations, regardless of their form) are subject to the requirement that their purpose may not be illegal or contrary to public policy.

It is not surprising that these minor details have never concerned any tax exempt organization that supports left-wing liberal-progressives; nor has it kept Democrats from reporting alleged conservative 501C3 violations.  For them it is a win-at-any-cost mentality. Honesty, ethics, integrity, honor, the rule-of-law, and the Constitution are just meaningless words to these people.  Imagine that … just another bit of proof that liberal progressives only pay lip service to “democracy” in their attempt to destroy our constitutional representative republic and replace it with a “benevolent” Obama-led progressive dictatorship.

I can only hope that my truly “American” democrat friends will wake up to this before it is too late.  It would be so nice to someday again live in an America that has FAIR & HONEST Democrats…
