Obama unlikely to halt vacation to visit flooded Louisiana (what a turd)

AP ^ | Aug. 18, 2016 | DARLENE SUPERVILLE 

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama is unlikely to break from a New England vacation to survey flood damage in Louisiana, despite calls for him to visit and meet with responders and victims.

The White House insists Obama is not indifferent to the suffering of thousands who were washed out of their homes in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas of the state. At least 13 people have died as a result of the flooding, and at one point 11,000 were in shelters. That number has dropped as water levels have receded.

Sheriff David Clarke Speaks Truth ^ | August 18, 2016 | Cal Thomas 

Growing up, I watched a lot of Westerns. In addition to the cowboy hero, the town sheriff was almost always a model of integrity. He stood for law and order against bank robbers, cattle rustlers and horse thieves all trying to disrupt the peace.
A contemporary and real-life version of those fictional characters is Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
Clarke has been trying to restore law and order after several nights of rioting following the shooting death of 23-year-old Sylville Smith by a Milwaukee police officer. Smith had a lengthy criminal record, longer than some people's resumes. He should have been in prison.
Sheriff Clarke has appeared numerous times on the Fox News Channel, but not so much in other media. On Monday, The Washington Post carried a story about the riots and ignored Clarke, choosing instead to quote Milwaukee's chief of police, Edward Flynn. I suspect that's because Sheriff Clarke speaks some hard truths, which many liberals do not want to hear.
In an appearance Monday on Fox, Sheriff Clarke, who is African-American, offered his explanation for the major cause of riots in Milwaukee and other cities: "You know what encourages this? The growth of the welfare state. These are underclass behaviors. Seventy percent of the kids born in Milwaukee ... are born without an engaged father in their life. So I look at the progressive policies that have marginalized black dads. They push them to the side and say 'you're not needed.' Uncle Sam is going to be the dad, he's going to provide for the kids, he's going to feed the kids ... Uncle Sam has been a horrible father. Uncle Sam does not love these kids. He might keep a little food in their mouths and that is about it. But we all know the importance of an intact family, what it can do to shape the behavior of kids."
Sheriff Clarke called progressive policies "a total disaster," not only in Milwaukee, but in Chicago, Baltimore, New York and elsewhere. "These progressive policies have hit the black community like a nuclear blast and until we reverse this government dependency, that's what creates all of this and it encourages it by the way, along with some questionable lifestyle choices."
His answer? "Until the black community does a self-evaluation and until they begin to self-criticize about some of the lifestyle choices they are making, this stuff is going to continue to fester."
A young African-American man found by a TV camera during the weekend riot said: "The rich people, they got all this money, and they not ... trying to give us none." Really? All of that tax money spent on anti-poverty programs for the last 50 years never trickled-down to him? This poisonous attitude has been promoted by progressives and has not helped the poor rise above their circumstances.
This young man should talk to Sheriff Clarke about changing his attitude. Some self-evaluation and an internal re-adjustment would do more for him than any anti-poverty program the Democrats could dream up.
Why do African-Americans continue to vote for liberal Democrats who have done little to help them and, in fact, often cause more harm than good?
Again, Sheriff Clarke gets it right: "Until we push back against this progressive ideology, this dangerous ideology that has been very destructive to the black community ... and that's what I'm trying to do ... it's job one right now in terms of messaging -- this thing is only going to get worse."

Clinton Foundation should stop accepting funds

Boston Globe ^ | 16 August 2016 | (editorial) 

ALTHOUGH THE CHARITY founded by former President Bill Clinton has done admirable work over the last 15 years, the Clinton Foundation is also clearly a liability for Hillary Clinton as she seeks the presidency. The once-and-maybe-future first family will have plenty to keep them busy next year if Hillary Clinton defeats Donald Trump in November. The foundation should remove a political — and actual — distraction and stop accepting funding. If Clinton is elected, the foundation should be shut down.
Since its founding, the foundation has supported relief in Haiti, global health, and other good causes. It also provided posts or paychecks for some members of the Clinton political team, like Cheryl Mills, Douglas Band, and Huma Abedin, and afforded the former president a platform and travel budget. Many of the foundation’s donations come from overseas, including from foreign governments with troubling human rights records.
The inherent conflict of interest was obvious when Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009. She promised to maintain a separation between her official work and the foundation, but recently released emails written by staffers during her State Department tenure make clear that the supposed partition was far from impregnable. That was bad enough at State; if the Clinton Foundation continues to cash checks from foreign governments and other individuals seeking to ingratiate themselves with a President Hillary Clinton, it would be unacceptable.
The Clintons should move now to end donations to the foundation, and make plans to shut it down in November. Even if they’ve done nothing illegal, the foundation will always look too much like a conflict of interest for comfort.

Obama secretly backing Muslim Brotherhood

Washington Times ^ | June 3, 2015 | Bill Gertz 

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11. The directive was produced in 2011 and outlines administration support for political reform in the Middle East and North Africa, according to officials familiar with the classified study.
Efforts to force the administration to release the directive or portions of it under the Freedom of Information Act have been unsuccessful.
White House National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan declined to comment on PSD-11. “We have nothing for you on this,” she said.
Critics of the administration’s strategy say the Brotherhood masks its goals and objectives despite advocating an extremist ideology similar to those espoused by al Qaeda and the Islamic State, but with less violence. The group’s motto includes the phrase “jihad is our way.” Jihad means holy war and is the Islamist battle cry.
Egyptian press reports after the ouster of Mr. Morsi have revealed extensive cooperation between the CIA and the Muslim Brotherhood during Mr. Morsi’s presidency.

German asylum seekers refuse to work insisting 'We are Merkel's GUESTS' uk ^ | August 18,2016 | By SIOBHAN MCFADYEN AND MONIKA PALLENBERG 

ASYLUM seekers in Germany are refusing to undertake work to counteract boredom - using Chancellor Angela Merkel’s generous hospitality as an excuse.
According to mayor Bernd Pohlers of the eastern town of Saxony Waldenburg, the asylum seekers refused to accept the work that was offered to them after they arrived in the country.
The local council spent £600 arranging for the men to have uniforms but were stunned when they were told they would not complete it because they were "guests of Angela Merkel".
While asylum seekers are not allowed to work under immigration rules within the EU, they are allowed to do voluntary work.
However officials in the district of Zwickau came up with a plan to help encourage those without employment to get back to work and to help them become more accepted within the local community.
In order to do this they created voluntary jobs which included a nominal payment of £18 for 20 hours work.

AP ^ | 8-18-2016 | BRADLEY KLAPPER 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department says a $400 million cash payment to Iran was contingent on the release of American prisoners. Spokesman John Kirby says negotiations over the United States' returning Iranian money from a decades-old account was conducted separately from the prisoner talks. But he says the U.S. withheld delivery of the cash as leverage until the U.S. citizens had left Iran. Both events occurred Jan. 17. Kirby spoke after The Wall Street Journal reported that the departures of the crisscrossing planes were linked.

Nets Compare Louisiana Flood to Katrina But Ignore Obama Vacation ^ | August 18, 2016 | Kyle Drennen 

Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS presented several reports on the “massive” and “historic” flooding devastating Louisiana, even comparing storm damage to that suffered during Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. However, the one thing missing from the coverage was a single mention of the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt proclaimed: “Now to the flooding disaster still impacting tens of thousands of people in the south. That massive tropical system that devastated Louisiana is now bringing new flash flood watches to Texas. This as the scope of the destruction grows across the region.” Correspondent Gabe Gutierrez followed: “For five days that water has flowed south toward the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Pontchartrain, carving a path of destruction....Tonight, 11 million people in Texas are under flash flood watches.”
Nets Compare Louisiana Flood to Katrina But Ignore Obama Vacation
On ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir announced: “...those historic floods in the south. Authorities tonight saying the flood damage is now the worst natural disaster to hit the U.S. since Superstorm Sandy.” Correspondent Phillip Mena declared: “In parishes downstream, they're bracing for the approaching flood waters, and hoping their sandbags hold....and for the thousands in shelters tonight, the water can't recede fast enough.”
CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley told viewers: “Across southern Louisiana, a historic week of rain is giving way to months of misery ahead. Muddy water is draining from homes and streets, revealing devastation from storms that killed at least 11 people. 40,000 homes are damaged.” Reporter Omar Villafranca warned: “But as the water recedes, the damage becomes more clear, and cleanup could be costly. Less than 21% of residential properties in Louisiana have flood insurance.”
The morning shows continued to spell out the dire reality of the disaster. On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie managed to at least note reaction from the Obama administration – if not from the President himself:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will visit Louisiana today to gage the federal response to nearly a week of flooding that killed at least 13 people and has damaged tens of thousands of homes. Officials fear the state could be facing its worst housing crisis since Hurricane Katrina 11 years ago. FEMA says it's looking into lining up rental properties and temporary housing units. More than 70,000 people have already applied for federal disaster assistance.
On ABC’s Good Morning America, weather person Ginger Zee explained: “Louisiana still dealing with major issues. That was Sorrento that we saw first, that flooded already, and then there's an area, St. John's Parish, that’s still sandbagging because the flooding hasn't ended....the rivers keep rising even though the rain isn't falling as heavily. So we're still watching this.”
CBS This Morning was the only one of the three morning programs to offer a full report on the topic. Fill-in co-host Margaret Brennan set up the piece: “Historic flooding in Louisiana could lead to the state's biggest housing crisis since Hurricane Katrina. The disaster has led to at least 13 deaths, tens of thousands of homes are affected, forcing many people to stay in shelters. 20 Louisiana parishes have been declared disaster areas.” Villafranca again reported from the flood zone: “40,000 homes were damaged in the flood and it's clear parts of southern Louisiana will never be the same.”
Despite the damage being as bad as Sandy or Katrina, none of the network hosts or correspondents thought to mention that President Obama was still vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard in the midst of the crisis.
Such an omission stood in stunning contrast to how NBC, ABC, and CBS routinely hammered then-President George W. Bush over the government response to Katrina in 2005.
In fact, the same glaring media double standard was on display in 2010 during the Gulf Coast oil spill. At that time, a Media Research Center study found that only 1% of the network news coverage in the four weeks immediately following the spill passed any judgement on the Obama administration’s response to the disaster. In 2005, it only took those same networks 72 hours to start blaming the Bush administration for a slow Katrina response.

DONALD TRUMP Surging with Black Voters, Bests Romney, McCain with Latino Voters

The Gateway Pundit ^ | 18 Aug | Jim Hoft 

Republican Donald Trump is surging with African American voters and gaining more support from Latino voters than Mitt Romney and John McCain.
The latest LA Times Daybreak poll has Hillary up by just six-tenths of a point.
Trump is surging with black voters and doing better with Latino voters than Romney or McCain.
In the last ten presidential election cycles the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996. Trump has 14.6% of the black vote in today’s LA Times poll.
If Donald Trump captured 25 percent of the African American vote he would win in a landslide.
And Trump has 26.7% of the Latino vote.
Mitt Romney gained 21 percent of the Latino vote in the 2012 election. Senator John McCain received 23 percent of the Latino vote in the 2008 election.

Trump is right: Hillary is a BIGOT (and so is the entire Democrat Party) ^ | 8/18/2016 

The leftist progressive media is doing everything it can to reshape the narrative when it comes to Donald Trump. I believe we clearly understand that regardless of what Trump says, the liberal progressive media is going to try and define his words to their advantage. However, the left just stepped into something that needs to be clarified — actually shoved up their “fourth point of contact.” It appears the left is taking umbrage with Trump referring to Hillary Clinton as a “bigot.”
“The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” Trump declared. “The Democratic Party has taken the votes of African-Americans for granted. They’ve just assumed they’ll get your support and done nothing in return for it. They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen,” he added. “It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes.”
It’s time for a history lesson about the Democrat Party and its relationship with the black community in America. It’s not just that Hillary Clinton individually is a bigot, it’s that the Democrat Party has ALWAYS embraced bigotry towards American blacks. There have been times when it was overt; now it’s just covert and better propagandized.
Let’s start with a simple comparison. The Republican Party was created based on a single issue, the abolition of slavery. The Democrat Party stood for slavery and the whole three-fifths compromise was to appease southern Democrats in order to preserve the Union. That ended up leading us into a divisive period we know as the Civil War. And true, at the onset, Abraham Lincoln didn’t want to make the conflagration about slavery in order to placate southern Democrats…but the issue became front and center.
It was Lincoln who, after the Battle of Antietam, issued the Emancipation Proclamation, and it was the Republicans who fought for and ended up achieving the 13th Amendment, ending slavery. The Democrats opposed them at every turn. Subsequently came the 14th and 15th Amendments, but as we approached the turn of the century, the Democrats won over the House and Senate. The Democrats had supported the creation of the Ku Klux Klan. The Democrats ushered in the Jim Crow laws and they were the ones who supported lynchings. Democrat president Woodrow Wilson even had a screening of the film “Birth of a Nation” in the White House, and did little to nothing to stem the tide of lynchings.
It was the Democrats who ushered in the voter intimidation tactics of literacy tests and poll taxes. Yes, Eleanor Roosevelt pushed for the first black fighter pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, albeit based on pressure from Mary McLeod Bethune.
And yes, integration of our Armed Forces came by way of President Harry Truman, which is why his picture hangs in my home. However, this angered the Democrat Party, and he lost reelection due to a lack of support. It was Republican President Dwight David Eisenhower who federalized the National Guard to enforce the Brown vs The Board of Education decision. He also sought to reinstate much of the Civil Rights legislation the Democrat Party had rolled back. Sadly, it was a difficult haul, since he didn’t have the control of the House and Senate.
The black community was firmly Republican up until the time Richard Nixon refused to offer support to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. while imprisoned. Nixon feared upsetting southern whites, and word got out that John F. Kennedy had contacted Mrs. King…true or not.
Therefore, from that point on three pictures hung in every black home: Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr., and John F. Kennedy. Trust me, they were in our living room on Kennesaw Avenue in Atlanta. However, the Democrats get credit for passing the 1964 Civil Rights Act when truth be told, it would not have passed without the support of Senate Republicans led by Everett Dirksen. He stood in opposition to Al Gore Sr. and KKK Grand Wizard Robert Byrd — whom Bill Clinton praised at his funeral/memorial service.
It was a Democrat president who began the destruction of the black family with a specific policy of his Great Society — the government giving checks to lower income women who have children out of wedlock, as long as they don’t have a man in the home. It was a Democrat Senator, Daniel Patrick Monyihan, who spoke out against that policy, and he was denigrated by the Democrat Party.
Back in the early ‘60s the two-parent household in the black community stood at 75 to 77 percent. Today it is 24 percent. It was Democrat President Johnson who made a very disturbing and disparaging comment aboard Air Force one about how the passage of the civil rights act would have — well, the last time we told you, Marky Zuckieberg got upset and kicked us off Facebook for 48 hours. You can find out that quote on your own. Hint: there’s a word in there that starts with “n.”
Since Roe v. Wade some 13 to 15 million black babies have been aborted, and you hardly heard a peep from the liberal progressive media about the case of one Kermit Gosnell.
It is Hillary Clinton who praises Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger, for whom she received an award under her name. Just peruse some of Sanger’s statement and you can easily ascertain her real objective in creating Planned Parenthood.
The history of the Democrat Party in America has been about slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism. And none of that has been beneficial to the black community.
Today the Democrat Party uses its socialist principle of wealth redistribution to expand the welfare nanny-state of victims and dependency. It has become the messenger of the theme called the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” That’s why the Democrat Party cannot stomach successful black conservatives because we counter their insidious bigotry based propaganda. And worse are the “gatekeeper” and modern 21st century economic plantation overseers who keep blacks downtrodden, resulting in Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia — you got my point.
The esteemed black educator Booker T. Washington was viciously attacked by white liberal progressives. They even turned his former friend, W.E.B. DuBois, against him — a tactic seen today. Washington famously stated, “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” That explains why Rev. Al Sharpton, a tax cheat, gets to visit the White House nearly 100 times.
So to the deceptive and despicable liberal progressive media, shut the hell up!
Donald Trump is right, it’s not just Hillary Clinton who is a bigot and a pandering liar, it is and has been the entire Democrat Party. The sad fact is that NO previous Republican presidential candidate has had the resolve and intestinal fortitude to call y’all out.
We finally got one, and it angers you to no end. The Democrat Party has NEVER sought the best for the black community, and to this day you continue to pour your deceptive honey into the ears of those who mindlessly follow you to their own demise.
Black Lives Matter is funded by a disgusting white progressive socialist named George Soros who wants only one thing…keep the colored folks on the new Democrat plantation so we can harvest the new crop, their vote.
As reported by Politico, “Donald Trump made a new and explicit plea for the support of black voters on Tuesday, saying the Democratic Party had “failed and betrayed” them and accusing Hillary Clinton of “bigotry” in the pursuit of minority voters. “We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes — that’s all they care about — not as individual human beings worthy of a better future,” Trump said at a rally in Wisconsin.
After Republican Party leaders have urged Trump for months to rein in unpredictable tangents on the stump that have gotten him in repeated political trouble, Trump used a teleprompter at a campaign rally for the first time on Tuesday to deliver a speech that waded into the thorny topics of race and politics.

Dems Pouring Millions Into Black Lives Matter

Truth Revolt ^ | August 17, 2016 | Trey Sanchez 

It’s a full-fledged political and terrorist machine.

Chants of “black lives matter” have filled the streets since the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. But what once was a grassroots movement has swelled to a full-on political machine and its increasing terrorism has the full financial blessing of several liberal foundations.
TruthRevolt previously reported on George Soros’s hefty donation of $33 million to ensure the Ferguson protests stayed in the spotlight for as long as possible. This funding helped bring in protesters by the busloads to Missouri and allowed them to sustain an echo chamber on social media to push their agenda. But that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Now, according to The Washington Times, other liberal donors are pledging their support to the Black Lives Matter movement. The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy have formed the Black-Led Movement Fund (BLMF) and are expected to raise $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition. Borealis released a statement:
The BLMF provides grants, movement building resources, and technical assistance to organizations working advance the leadership and vision of young, Black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America.
That’s a very sanitized description of the BLM movement. You have to peel back the layers of BLM rhetoric and expose its true nature: an anti-America, anti-Israel, Marxist, racist organization. Fortunately, they’ve made this very easy to do by admitting it themselves. The Movement for Black Lives coalition recently released its platform, and it demands nothing short of a political, social, economic, and criminal takeover of America. None of it is reasonable, but it’s fully backed by a leftist machine that shows no signs of slowing.

BREAKING: WikiLeaks Email Found Showing Secret Memo To Obama From ISIS ^ | August 16 2016 | MARTIN WALSH 

Last week, Donald Trump asserted that Hillary Clinton and Obama “founded ISIS.” Trump didn’t literally mean they sat down and discussed how to create this group from scratch–or did he?
Trump’s statement is 100% accurate, and a leaked memo from the State Department proves it to be true!
A month ago, it was released that Hillary Clinton received classified intelligence stating that Obama was supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), the group that changed their name to ISIS. So, Obama is the founder of ISIS, and Hillary quickly became the co-captain of this dangerous team in 2012.
The leaked memo made it abundantly clear that AQI used Muhammad Al Adnani as their spokesman. Guess what, he is now the spokesman for ISIS. Barack Hussein Obama was literally paying them money! This is not even close to a joke or a theory. The leaked memo proves it to be factual.
Obama’s plan was to support the terrorist group until they overthrew Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad.
Toppling dictators and supporting terrorist groups has NEVER worked, but Hillary continues to think so. She was a heavy proponent of this idea. Keep that point in mind.
In an August 2012 “SECRET” classified memo made its way to Hillary Clinton AND Obama.

How The Democrats Turned Milwaukee Into A Cesspool ^ | August 18, 2016 | John Perazzo 

Tuesday in riot-torn Milwaukee, Donald Trump pointed out a very blunt and irrefutable truth: “The Democratic Party has run nearly every inner city in this country for 50 years, and run them into … ruin,” with “crime policies, education policies, and economic policies [that] have produced only more crime, more broken homes, and more poverty.”

And indeed, wherever we look—Atlanta, Camden, Newark, St. Louis, Chicago, Flint, Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington—we see one-party cities that are crumbling testaments to the awesome power of bad ideas. Specifically, Trump referenced “the situation right here in Milwaukee, a city run by Democrats for decade after decade,” citing its high rates of homicide, joblessness, poverty, and educational failure.
