Obama NAACP Lost Racist Media Civil War Against Tea Party   Leave a comment

Monday the White House, NAACP, and the Department Of Agriculture freaked out over two video clips posted on an Internet blog showing Shirley Sherrod; who was the state director of rural development in Georgia addressing a NAACP sponsored event for it’s members telling them how she in passed years  handled a poor White farmer in need of saving his farm. In the video clips, Shirley Sherrod used racist, bigoted words describing how she dealt with the White farmer at first. In the rest of the video she tells how she learned race did not matter when people need help.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said Shirley Sherrod, who is African American should be fired. Then Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said she was fired and the Obama White House supported his decision.
CNN went to death-com one to find out who Shirley Sherrod was, how to contact her and find the White farmer. CNN called Shirley putting her on air live asking her what was going on. Shirley said the White  House wanted her resignation or she would be fired, they said I was going to be on the Glenn Beck show.
Shirley went on to say she was driving home at the time she received four phone calls from Cheryl Cook, the federal USDA rural development undersecretary. The last call from Cheryl she “asked me to pull to the side of the road and do it, resign,” she said. The Obama, White House is standing firm that they did not pressure Shirley Sherrod for her resignation. It was the secretary’s decision, as he has said.
Glean Beck’s Monday show did not air any reports about Shirley Sherrod or the videos, on his Tuesday show Beck said Shirley Sherrod firing was wrong. The NAACP owned and had a copy of the video tap that has caused all this racist blowout, they themselves did not teke the time to review their our full copy of the tape before throwing Shirley Sherrod under the bus as did the Obama White House. Yet, the NAACP released a statement saying they were snookered by Fox New. That’s the blame game at it’s best, don’t let the facts get the way.           
Shirley Sherrod is an Obama political appointee, anyone believing the White House did not have a say in Shirley resigning would have to live in the land of OZ. Yet, CNN and other national news groups seem to work in zombie-land and believe whatever the White House puts out. From Monday till Wednesday CNN had Shirley Sherrod in almost lock-down at their Atlanta news headquarters or a reporter with her everywhere she went. Some think CNN may have more information as to a White House involvement and for some reasons  are not reporting the connections name. White House press secretary Gibbs is saying he has no idea who from the White House staff corresponded with the Department Of Agriculture.
All that’s being said now is a White House liaison person “No name given” working within the Department Of  Agriculture dealt with the Shirley Sherrod issue and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. All Vilsack is saying about the issue is, it was his decision. This issue is not over by no means no matter who wants it to go away.
The NAACP did not ask Tea Party leaders to come to their Kansas City meeting this past weekend and discuss any issues they had with the group. Instead the NAACP went to the national media saying they were going to draft a resolution they knew would smear the Tea Party as a racist group leading up to the November election. The NAACP resolution was basic and had no real facts backing it up in calling on the Tea Party to expel any racist or fringe groups in it ranks. In going after the Tea Party all the NAACP accomplished was bring a boat load of heat down on its own national group alone with questions about its own ranking members and group associations.
The NAACP playing the race card and crying wolf at the Tea Party has only made Americans take a strong look at how politics and political back stabbing are getting way out of hand across the country. The NAACP has it now where anyone not for the democratic party is branded as a right wing racist. Obama has repeatedly bashed the Tea Party movement in his town hall meetings.  
Andrew Breitbart told CNN’s “John King USA” on Tuesday that releasing the video clip he was given was “not about Shirley Sherrod.” “This was about the NAACP attacking the Tea Party, and this is showing racism at an NAACP event,” he said. “I did not ask for Shirley Sherrod to be fired.”
NAACP’s actions against the Tea Party has Americans fearing a racial divide will erupt and cause wide spread violence at a time when all Americans are hurting from the economic crisis. The Tea Party has been all along policing its members and groups, it’s posted on their websites what they require from their members. What’s not getting national air time is all the racist attacks against Tea Party member at their events held around the country. Plus they’re having to deal with left wing fringe groups trying to infiltrate their events starting trouble or setting up a video fake racist act and claming it was Tea Party member, this is happening and has been documented.
The NAACP’s race card actions against the Tea Party movement is having a major backlash effect. This week the Congressional Tea Party Caucus became a reality, and the movement is growing even bigger. Americans are focused on the economy and jobs and that’s the Tea Party’s banner message for democrats and republicans who want to keep their job or be elected to office.

NAACP Calling American Veterans the Backbone of the Tea Party Racist   1 comment

The NAACP, this week, went on national media denouncing members of the Tea Party as racist. The NAACP would not allow news groups to record their resolution vote making their statement official. The NAACP would only say to the national media was there could be racist supporters within the Tea Party ranks.

Tea Party members are calling on the NAACP to denounce it’s racist members and supporters. Racism has no color and it’s a two way street for anyone wanting to go down that road, said Mike Graham founder of United Native America and a Tea Party member.

African-American tea party candidates Erupted at Kansas City NAACP meeting over their resolution labeling the grass-roots conservative movement as “racist.”

Vernon Parker, an African-American tea party congressional candidate in Arizona, told Politico that he has not experienced the charges of racism that the NAACP is touting in the national media.

Vernon Parker, former mayor of Paradise Valley, told Politico that he has never felt out of place at a tea party rally because of the color of his skin. “When I go to tea party events, people don’t look at me any differently,” he said. “They didn’t judge me on the color of my skin, quite frankly, they judged me on my principles.” Vernon Parker went on to say “The NAACP should be concerned about bringing jobs to people in depressed areas.”

Another African-American tea party candidate, Tim Scott, a GOP congressional nominee in South Carolina, echoed Parker’s sentiments in a statement to Politico.

Tim Scott stated “I believe that the NAACP is making a grave mistake in stereotyping a diverse group of Americans who care deeply about their country and who contribute their time, energy and resources to make a difference,” Scott said. Americans clearly see the NAACP’s attempt to smear the Tea Party. American voters are not news network zombies, they live in the real world, not the media projection of it.

Tea Party officials stood up to the NAACP by calling their statement flat out false and misguided. Members of the Tea Party see it as a democratic political party attack with the support of the NAACP to cause public image damage to their national group and movement.

What is not being reported in our national mainstream media, is the fact that the backbone of the Tea Party membership and supporters is our nations veterans, service members and their family members of all race in America. Veterans and Americans serving our nation today with the support of their family members make up the vast majority of the Tea Party movement.

The NAACP actions against the Tea Party is not going over well with Americans regardless of race or their political affiliation, and has opened the door for question about who is running the NAACP; their members and supporters. The fact that the NAACP is a race-based group, their political denouncement of the Tea Party only further diminishes their image and ability to bring people together.

It’s a well known fact that Tea Party members and supporters are a cross of all races, ethnic groups and political parties in America. It’s also a fact that a Black man Tea Party supporter was brutally beaten by Black union members bussed in to protest against A Tea Party event. NAACP members said he had it coming because he was selling tee shirts of Obama they did not like; that court case is still pending.

It’s also a fact that the Black Panther Party and the New Black Panther Party members support the NAACP and attend their events. The NAACP is also supported by the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus that does not allow any other race of elected congressional members of congress to join their caucus in solidarity.

This goes to the heart of the NAACP credibility in American society today, over their failure to reach out to Tea Party leadership first; before playing the race card for news headlines with a statement that would cast a blanket condemnation over a group made up of all walks of Americans when they themselves should be looking at their own members and supporters and their actions against others at events.

Tea Party members have no problem stating their cause and that is for our elected federal government representatives to govern from the Constitution of the United States Of America. They also demand that our elected representatives adhere to their issues and community needs to include the defiance of our country.

Americans will not stand for a government that’s run with an in-your face agenda as to how America should be governed, and what rights citizens should or will not have or laws that will be enforced solely on the political party in office. Enforcement of our nation’s laws for all Americans are a must. Tea Party members demand that their elected representatives honor their oath to the American citizens and our nation.

If the NAACP wants to stay relevant to it’s founding peaceable and cause they should be reaching out to all groups that support a strong and free America; that would include the Tea Part movement, not politically back-stabbing them with an unfounded national media racist smear campaign.

Reports have proven that political left wing fringe groups have tried to infiltrate Tea Party movement events to cause trouble and conduct racist acts that would be blamed on the movement’s membership and leaders. This action against the Tea Party gets very little national media air time, but Americans see what is being done to try and destroy the movement and it only makes them more determined to reach out to others to join them and stand united to take back our government; for the people, by the people of America.

The NAACP should come off it’s democrat party soap box and join Americans standing up for our country and it’s citizens regardless of race, and stop playing the race card at the drop of the hat. The direction the NAACP is going now against the Tea Party is wrong and history will prove them wrong. The Tea Party and NAACP should be allies in this fight to save our nation and way of life under the freedoms we have as Americans.

Both groups, Tea Party and NAACP should join forces in standing up against government oppression and restrictions of our civil liberties given to all Americans under our declaration of independence and constitution.

The vast majority of Americans support the Tea Party in saying our federal and state governments are out of control and not listening to us. Americans are fed up with Democrats and Republicans in office not doing their job for the people and our nation. American citizens need to unite and take a stand in telling our elected representatives how we want America run and taken care of for future generations, not the other way around. Americans are demanding a stop to the out of control “wasteful spending” and deficit that is threatening our ability to defend our home land.

The Tea Party’s real movement will be this November, with the mid-term election at the voting polls, and march forward growing stronger, focused on the 2012 election.

Tea Party members and supporters are calling on the NAACP to rescind it’s ill-conceived resolution and join the movement in solidarity for a better United America for all citizens.

President Obama Turning Afghanistan Into Another American Vietnam War   Leave a comment

President Obama accepting General Stanley McChrystal’s resignation over his statements reported in Rolling Stone magazine was done so just to save political face. General McChrystal speaking out was a wake-up call to Congress and Americans about the Obama administration’s mishandling of the Afghanistan government and war. General McChrystal is Obama’s second general to be relieved from command in Afghanistan.
General McChrystal stood up for U.S. Troops on the ground in Afghanistan. General McChrystal’s words brought world attention to the Obama-Biden administration’s failing Afghanistan policies. Now Congress and Americans have to take a for-real look at Obama’s overall plans for the Afghanistan government and building  the Afghanistan army. His words also block’s Obama from pointing his finger at Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai and laying any failures or troop losses solely on him. Now the Obama administration’s credibility is soundly on the line for Afghanistan and its future. Now there will be no cut and run for President Obama and his supporters; not after almost ten years of war and over a trillion U.S. tax dollars.

Vietnam was a Washington-run political war, it was politically lost. U.S. troops won that war everyday they were on the Battlefield only to have politicians in Washington cut and run denying our troops a victory.      
After President Obama announced General Petraeus would be in charge of his Afghanistan war plan, national media groups like CNN and Fox spent the day praising Obama. They called Obama’s decision nothing short of brilliant. Americans remember a 2007 advertisement in the New York Times by democrats stating “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” plus, then Senator Obama denouncing General Petraeus and his war plan for Iraq and a heavy dose of Bush bashing.  
How times have changed. Now it’s up to General Petraeus to save President Obama and Vice President Biden’s political backside from losing control of the Afghanistan war.
President Obama’s new war plan for Afghanistan however; will not destroy the Taliban or Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist group. Nor will President Obama’s war plan secure Afghanistan’s government within a year as his stated plans are to start pulling U.S. troops out in July 2011. President Obama’s Afghanistan war plan over the next year will unfortunately add around 5,000 more U.S. troop casualties and three times that many with severe injuries. 
President Obama and Vice President Biden have given al-Qaeda and Taliban forces a year to prepare for U.S. and NATO troops buildup in Afghanistan. They were not ready to deal with Afghanistan in 2009. Obama’s Afghanistan war plan as it stands now, does however have all the historical ingredients in place and earmarks of another U.S. Custer last stand.
It’s a fact, over the past year Iran has been training al-Qaeda and Taliban forces for the Afghanistan show down. Iran is arming these terrorist groups and others with more powerful, armor-piercing, roadside bombs. Reports coming in now are stating these roadside bombs are taking a heavy toll on U.S. troops.      
For decades, our federal government has had in place a no-fly order between America and North Korean citizens. That order should be in place now between America and Middle Eastern countries that support or harbor terrorist groups within their borders. That would stop major terrorist cell group members from entering America and the free-world at will as they are now. Ask yourself why has America and free-world governments not enacted this kind of no-fly policy for Middle Eastern countries? 
General Stanley McChrystal may be a four star general, but he’s a five star American; for his sound military leadership and service to our country and for standing up and telling it like it is as to President Obama and Vice President Biden’s detached leadership and interest concerning the Afghanistan war and their not being soundly committed to destroying terrorist cells globally, period. General Stanley McChrystal is a true hero to our nation’s veterans and military family.
President Obama nor Vice President Biden were prepared to deal with all the inhuman realities of waging war against Middle Eastern terrorist groups dedicated 24/7 from 9-11 to destroying America and the free-world. Our nation’s top two elected leaders have let it be seen in the national media that they really do not want to deal with real military matters.
In 2009 U.S. Troops on the Afghanistan battle field watched and waited as President Obama and Vice President Biden took four months to decide what their “new” Afghanistan war plan and troop level would be. Then they were told President Obama’s war plan would not take place till mid 2010. Obama and Biden should have been ready from day one in office to reinforce U.S. troops in Afghanistan ensuring the destruction of al-Qaeda and Taliban forces.
Until President Obama sends U.S. Troops into Pakistan to destroy al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists, there’s no way Afghanistan or America will ever be totally secured. It’s past time for Washington to take the gloves off and allow our military to destroy Middle Eastern terrorist groups.         
This is why our troops morale is so low and the all-volunteer Army program is not working in retaining qualified soldiers. This is also why the military has had to order U.S. Troops to serve past their enlistment time. Most all U.S. Troops today have had to serve four or more times in Iraq or Afghanistan. Some American soldiers are reported having to serve as many as seven or eight times in country.
Americans are demanding that President Obama and our elected Congress members stop all the political in-house fighting and get focused on destroying Middle Eastern terrorist groups attacking America and the free-world!
U.S. Troops will do their job for Afghanistan, now we will see if President Obama, his team and our Congress members will do their job for Afghanistan and our troops.

President Obama allowed gulf oil to hit coastal shores and wildlife reserves   Leave a comment

President Obama, in his own words, is on record stating that letting the gulf oil come ashore was a good thing. He told gulf coast citizens the beaches could be cleaned up easier. President Obama went on to state, if he could, he would swim down and close the oil well off. Obama also stated if he could suck the oil up from the well with a straw he would. Those kind of statements from our President truly added insult to injury to gulf coast citizens because they know Obama did not do his job in stopping or putting up a fight to stop the oil from coming onto their coast line in the first place.

President Obama is now declaring war on the gulf coast oil disaster after two months has passed. The damage has already been done; it’s too late to call for a war Mr. President. You were missing in action from day one. President Obama is fighting this so-called oil war like the federal government did the Vietnam War.

Americans get it, the oil flow will not stop until another well is completed. Americans get it that President Obama did not do his job in stopping the oil from coming ashore. Americans get it that Obama was wrong in putting BP in charge of the oil cleanup. Americans also get it that the national media is giving Obama a free pass for his failed leadership in this oil crisis by keeping the focus 100% on BP. BP’s only job right now should be getting the oil well capped!

From the beginning of this oil disaster, gulf coast citizens and their elected state representatives have looked to President Obama for leadership and for him to send them federal supplies and put boots on the ground to stop the oil from reaching their beaches, inland waterways and natural wildlife reserves all along the gulf coast. This has not happened to date. In fact, oil booms and skimming ships were taken from the state of Alabama and sent to Louisianan after the fact. Most all Louisiana beaches and wildlife reserves were already oil soaked. Alabama was then hit with the oil slime, and citizens did not have any equipment on hand to save their coastline. President Obama allowed this action to repeat itself all the way to Florida beaches.

In every news report coming out of the gulf coast for the past two months citizens were crying for Obama to send them oil booms and oil skimming ships to stop the oil from hitting the shore and destroying their lives. All they heard or got from Obama was; it’s all BP’s fault, BP is in charge of the oil clean up and BP will pay for the oil cleanup. Obama’s handling of the oil crisis in this manner kept the national news media reporting his words, it’s all BP’s fault. That insured the blame game would stay focused on BP and give him a free pass by keeping his finger pointed at BP, not himself.

President Obama made it a point to turn down international help from countries that could have brought in much needed oil booms, larger oil skimming ships and experts to deal with keeping oil from reaching gulf coast beaches and shoreline. Obama made it a point not to sign a waiver of the Jones Act that would have allowed ships from other countries to enter U.S. waters with supplies to help out in the oil disaster.

This action from President Obama leaves no doubt he allowed the gulf coast shore oil disaster to happen. Obama knew his actions would destroy the gulf coast fishing industry, small businesses, tourism, and by his placing a six month ban on offshore oil drilling, tens of thousands of jobs would be lost. With the oil disaster about to enter its third month, Obama still has not had one oil well inspected and cleared to restart oil production.

It’s inconceivable our President would do something like this on purpose for no reason, but his words and actions are now on record. President Obama made it a point just weeks into the oil disaster to send his Attorney General Eric Holder, in person, to the gulf coast to make a national statement that he was going to investigate BP for criminal charges. This action from Obama caused BP’s stock to drop almost one hundred billion dollars and it’s still going down and oil is still washing ashore in four gulf states under Obama’s leadership.

Reports are claiming Obama is not letting ships from other countries help in the oil cleanup because he is protecting union jobs in the cleanup. If this is true, their should be an impeachment hearing of President Obama. That would be a direct violation of Obama’s Presidential oath to all American people.

President Obama, with the support of national media groups, demonizing BP to the point gas stations with BP’s name on them are being attacked; has forced BP to setup an account with twenty billion dollars for starters for oil cleanup and recovery cost; on it’s face that sounds good. But now, Obama democrats have a free pass to the BP account to drain it, at will for whatever they say needs recovered. Obama democrats in TV press reports are repeatedly stating BP is their cash cow to bleed or destroy at will.

Even though President Obama nor Congress has the legal power to force BP to set up an open ended cash account, it’s now a forced done deal. Corporations doing business with America and others companies around the world see the writing on the wall. The Obama government can and will take them over at the drop of a hat. This unprecedented action by President Obama and the federal government will have longer economic repercussions for all Americans than the gulf coast oil disaster. If you think good paying jobs have been leaving America because of this federal governments one-sided free trade policy, you haven’t seen nothing yet.

Native American TV programs 24 hours a day coming   1 comment

Native American TV

San Bernardino, Calif.-based KVCR TV, a PBS affiliate, in partnership with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, will roll out a television channel that broadcasts Native American programs 24 hours a day.
This first-of-its-kind channel, scheduled to launch next spring, will focus on Native American and Alaska Native history, culture and current events.

While programming still needs to be developed by the channel’s operations board, which has not been put together yet, Kenneth Shoji, a spokesperson for the tribe, told AIR, “It is envisioned that shows will run the gamut, from documentaries, films, news programs, entertainment, sports and special programs in multiple genres.”

The channel will not be commercial-free. Shoji said it will be consistent with FCC rules and PBS underwriting guidelines, which allow sponsor statements to precede or follow programs.

The channel is being funded by a $6 million donation from the San Manuel. It will be paid to the station in annual installments during the first three years of operation.

KVCR, which serves the Los Angeles market, is owned by the San Bernardino Community College District. The San Manuel’s 800-acre reservation is located just north of Highland. The owner/operator of San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino, the tribe is one of the largest employers in the Inland Empire.

This is not the first time the tribe and station have worked together. The tribe recently contributed $1.5 million to KVCR so that it could purchase new digital master control equipment and convert from analogue to digital broadcast and expand from one to six channels. They have also partnered in the development of radio and television programs, including a three-part, 12-episode documentary called People of the Pines.

James Ramos, the tribe’s chairman, said in a press release announcing the channel that partnering with KVCR supports the tribe’s mission of eradicating stereotypes that often stem from inaccurate depictions of American Indians in commercial television.

“Supporting this endeavor will help achieve that objective by allowing us to tell the story of Native Americans through themes and images that speak the truth and educate our audiences,” he said.

The channel will also establish another outlet for Native American-produced films and television programs.

“We fully anticipate this unique channel to become a model for public-television programming across the country,” said Larry R. Ciecalone, president of KVCR.
