Weekend Edition: The Obamacare Crap Sandwich

By Craig Andresen

Obamacare is 100% pure crap and liberals and socialists are running away from it, using any desperate line of bull they can concoct to blame it on others.

They are now trying to blame it on the government shutdown.

It was NOT the Republicans who shut down the government…The Obama administration with the assistance of Harry Reid and the liberal/socialists of the senate did that.

We KNOW they did it because this administration had everything they needed ready to go the second the shutdown began.

They had their “closed” signs professionally printed by the THOUSANDS and barricades ready to be placed IMMEDIATELY and that could ONLY have been accomplished with PRIOR PLANNING.

It made no difference WHAT proposals the Republicans would have made leading up TO the shutdown…Obama said he would NOT negotiate and Reid was bound and determined to NOT allow a single measure put forward to see the senate floor for a vote.

Liberals and socialists had their talking points, all the names, “arsonists, hostage takers, ransom demanders, terrorists, extremists, racists” and others all lined up and were ready to let it fly and blame the Republicans for what THEY, the liberals and socialists, had planned.

Why?

Check your calendars…

How convenient that the government shutdown would coincide EXACTLY with the roll out of Obamacare.

This administration, we are now learning, had all the advanced warning necessary to KNOW, full well, that the Obamacare website was going to crash and burn.

They also knew that once that site went live, any who WERE able to log on would be met with the shock of their lives.

Sticker shock.

The high price of Obamacare insurance was going to be enough to stun and anger the public and Obama, his administration and his liberal/socialist minions in congress KNEW it.

This administration also knew that people, MILLIONS of Americans, were about to be kicked out of their existing insurance coverage and when THEY got a look at the prices of their new plans…THEY were going to be seeing RED.

In an attempt to keep people from achieving instant outrage, this administration, just a couple of weeks prior to the roll out, ordered that the browse feature of the Obamacare website be buried so deep within the site that those who managed to log in wouldn’t be able to get there without first entering all their personal information.

The intent, during the liberal/socialist administration’s imposed “shutdown” of the government was to brag about the “high numbers” of people trying to log on to the website in order to make it look as though there was a high demand for Obamacare and, they did just that.

They were lying.

Once the “shutdown” of 17% of the government came to an end…they were exposed.

Obamacare was exposed.

Obama’s lies regarding “if you like your plan…If you like your doctor…You can KEEP them…PERIOD” were exposed.

The obscene prices were exposed.

MILLIONS of Americans being kicked off their existing coverage was exposed.

And the liberal/socialist buffoons in congress who voted for Obamacare and defended Obamacare for the last 3 years were exposed.

Perhaps, most importantly…

The ideology behind it all, the driving force of this administration…SOCIALISM…Was exposed.

And now, liberals and socialists, like Frank Pallone from New Jersey, are left to lie about Obamacare as they try, uncomfortably, to dismiss the truth.

Pallone seems ready to wet himself here.

Pallone, trying to mask socialism, offers that nobody is going to buy lousy insurance if there is a better alternative. Pallone…OBAMACARE is lousy insurance and people are done buying the lies!!!

We know that the Obama administration is now, actively, blaming insurance companies for kicking Americans to the Obamacare curb.

We know that’s a lie because…

We also know that the original “grandfather clause” in Obamacare would have allowed people to keep what they already had and, that this administration quickly crafted NEW regulations which would make that IMPOSSIBLE by TIGHTENING the noose on Insurance companies within 2 months of passing the bill.

We now know that it’s not just a website purposefully designed to fail that is keeping people from enrolling in Obamacare.

OBAMACARE itself is keeping people from enrolling.

On day 1, October 1st, 2013, we know that 4.7 million Americans logged on and that all of 6…SIX PEOPLE bought into the Obama/Reid, Pelosi and…Pallone lies, and enrolled.

That is only 1/10,000 of 1% of those who logged on.

That destroys the liberal/socialist talking point and bragging point of high numbers.

We know that in those states with their own exchanges rather than the federal government exchange…approximately 80%-90% of those who have enrolled, have enrolled in Medicaid…the FREE healthcare and that only 10% or so have enrolled in out of pocket Obamacare insurance.

So far, in Oregon…ZERO have bought Obamacare and 100% have gone on free Medicad.

Liberals and socialists are running amok trying to convince people that this is all the fault of Republicans and the Tea Party. That this has been made worse because of the shutdown they are still trying to blame on the Republicans.

And the ideology behind it all…SOCIALISM…Is now fully exposed in that their liberals are now trying to tell those who simply can’t afford the “Affordable Care Act” that the reason they HAVE to buy Obamacare insurance is because whatever they had has been deemed…BY BIG GOVERNMENT AND BIG BROTHER…To be inadequate.

GOVERNMENT…They will tell you…KNOWS BETTER WHAT YOU NEED THAN YOU DO!!!

The lies and corruption just keep coming.

Obama hired an outfit, CGI Federal from Canada to build the Obamacare website.

CGI Federal has now been fired BY Canada for building THEIR loused up healthcare website.

What was it Obama said to do when HIS website wouldn’t work? Oh yes…Phone it in and fill out the PAPERwork and MAIL it in.

So…Who did he hire to process all that PAPERwork???

Serco.

According to the Obama administration…“Serco is a highly-skilled company that has a proven track record in providing cost-effective services to numerous other federal agencies.

“The selection met all of the requirements for a full and open competition and, the timing enables us to be ready for marketplace open enrollment starting on October 1.”

Serco…The “highly skilled company that has a proven track record providing cost-effective service to numerous other federal agencies,” and a worldwide employer of 120,000 now under investigation for…RIPPING OFF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT to the tune of $80 MILLION dollars.

Now, we discover that the Senior VP of CGI Federal, the inept company that won the no-bid contract to build the insipid Obamacare website is none other than…Toni Townes-Whitley, a Princeton class of ’85, classmate of none other than…MICHELLE OBAMA.

And finally, the socialist Obama must hire “the best and brightest” to fix the Obamacare website. It must come as the ultimate shame to his ideology that the “best and brightest” work in the PRIVATE SECTOR and NOT for the government.

The website can be fixed but, the law itself cannot.

The law will fail as surely as has the ideology upon which it is based, Socialism, fails every time and in every place it has been tried and there are reason for that.

Obamacare, like socialism itself, requires other people’s money and while the Obama administration says the numbers aren’t available yet, they’re lying.

The number ARE available, those numbers are leaking out and they tell a sad tale for socialists.

When at least 80% of those who have been able to see the prices on their state run exchanges are enrolling for the FREE Medicaid rather than the out of pocket Obamacare…It’s failing.

When ONLY 1/10,000 of 1% of those who logged on to the Obamacare site on day 1 bought Obamacare…It’s failing.

That is because, Obamacare, just like socialism, is based on lies and corruption.

Liberals and socialists up for election in the house in 2014 must now run FROM Obamacare rather than ON Obamacare and those liberals and socialists in the senate, seeking to keep their seats in 2014 have to run away from it too.

They have all been exposed and now…THEY want the individual mandate delayed.

Funny, isn’t it?

Those are the exact same liberals and socialists who, just 4 weeks ago, called anyone who was asking for a delay…Terrorists, arsonists, extremists, hostage takers, ransom demanders and…Racists.

Now, Americans…ALL Americans know that Obamacare is A 100% crap sandwich and, they know exactly who packed their lunch.

A legacy for Barack Obama – Syria Will Surrender Chemical Weapons to Russia

By Wes Prudwn
Vladimir-Putin_4-301x350
A war nobody believes in, led by a man nobody trusts. If Barack Obama is still looking for a legacy, here it is. Everything about the Syrian dilemma stinks.
Bashar Assad is recognized by nearly everybody as the source of at least half the stink. But only half. The rest of the stench is supplied by the rebels. It’s tempting to suggest that Mr. Obama, who yearns for applause, deserves the dilemma.
A war nobody believes in, led by a man nobody trusts. If Barack Obama is still looking for a legacy, here it is. Everything about the Syrian dilemma stinks.
In U.S. and around world, doubts grow over attack on Syria
Bombers always sound to the uneducated ear like the cheap, quick and sensible way to punish international bad guys. Lots of bang-bang, fire, smoke and bravado is exciting, stimulating and inspiring, guaranteed to warm the blood of those who are not required to shed the blood. Bombs usually accomplish considerably less than expected, as decades of war on nearly every continent have demonstrated to anyone paying attention.
But cutting an American president, any president, off at the knees is no strategy, either, even if he’s a president who deserves punishment for screwing up everything he touches and threatens to make incompetence the national virtue. If the president really wants to go to war over Syria’s chemical weapons, and doing it alone unless you count the French, he should have done it without consulting Congress, since he thinks congressional permission is not really necessary. Congress only wants to belabor the obvious, anyway, and spend the rest of summer and early autumn debating, preening and trying to avoid responsibility for saying either yea or nay.obama-biden_s160x224
Several “key” senators put together a bipartisan version of an administration deal with Congress, and the resolution is a corker. In fact, it was written by Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the Republican, and Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the Democrat. The actual architect was whoever invented Swiss cheese, because it has many loopholes, some of them large enough to drive an Abrams main battle tank through and on to Damascus, breaking off just enough cheese for an omelet. Mr. Menendez emerged from the negotiations bubbling with pride of authorship.
The deal would give the president “the authority he needs to deploy force,” he said, while “assuring that the authorization is narrow and focused, limited in time, and assures that the armed forces of the United States will not be deployed for combat operations in Syria.”
This is a cheesy way to fight a war, and ineffective besides. A war requires more than boots on the ground, and John Kerry keeps assuring us that no American footwear will touch Syrian sand. But change always happens. Anyone who has heard these promises before, beginning with Lyndon Johnson (“We seek no wider war”), is naturally skeptical. Harry Truman never called the Korean War a war; it was only “a police action.” FDR promised in 1940 that he would never send “American boys” to a foreign war. Circumstances change.
The cliche about boots does not impress Charlie Rangel, the Democratic congressman from Harlem, who brought a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star home from Korea. “You cannot be part pregnant in international conflicts,” he says, “and once you get in, all these resolutions mean nothing.” He doesn’t think most members of Congress “have any skin in the game.”
He makes the obvious point that the makers of war are rarely the fighters in the war. “You know, they don’t get these volunteers for combat from Harvard or Yale,” he says. “They get them from communities like mine … if members of Congress thought for one minute that [the country would be] drafting their kids and their grandkids, you would not see this overwhelming sense of patriotism that you see.”
The invasion of France was the most carefully plotted battle of World War II; the quartermasters calculated down to the last bean how many beans the Navy would need for its signature soup in the ships off Normandy. Dwight Eisenhower ruefully conceded on the eve of D-Day that once the first shots are fired all the carefully drafted plans are gone with the wind. Congressional resolutions, however eloquently parsed, mean nothing once the war begins.
Saying “pox on both your houses” is no policy, either, even if it replaces “no policy.” Barack Obama painted himself into this corner, taking the rest of us with him, and in a fair and ordered world, we could walk away to let the Islamic precincts of the Middle East stew in their own bile, venom and malignant evil.
If the president loses the vote, his credibility will be lost for sure and for good, but so will the credibility of the United States. For better or worse, the credibility of the president, any president, and the credibility of the nation are bound together. That’s what makes this dilemma particularly and spectacularly bad. This one may be a hold-your-nose vote to give Barack Obama his legacy.

What Obama Can Learn from Roger Ailes

Ailes_Roger
As CEO of 5WPR, a leading PR agency, I am well aware that personal relationships are vital. Interpersonal skills, relationships and chemistry matter tremendously in business, politics, and in life. History demonstrates occurrences where relationships have changed the course of history, for example, how the personal bond between Roosevelt and Churchill helped end the Second World War.

While disagreements and even fights are inevitable, personal relationships generally can predict a better outcome. In places of power, one can often witness strange bedfellows. President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton are very close personal friends. Russian President Vladimir Putin and former President George W. Bush had a mutual respect and considered one another friends, despite repeated political differences. And while the mantra of the left claims that Democrats are nicer and more accepting than Republicans, the facts are often very different. In fact, multiple studies indicate that liberals are often considerably less charitable than conservatives.

With the importance of inter-personnel relationships, an interesting study can be made examining the relationships of two very powerful people and organizations – President Barack Obama, representing the liberal left, and Roger Ailes on Fox News representing the conservatives.

One of the foremost selling points of Obama was supposedly that he would improve America’s standing in the world and improve relationships that the United States holds worldwide. And in the midst of Obama failing to secure any worldwide support for military action in Syria after the G-12 Summit, it is telling that in addition to being a terrible leader, the man has awful interpersonal skills. Obama and Putin have the worst personal relationship between US and Russian — perhaps even US and Soviet — leaders in history. Putin does not trust, or like Obama; he is very clear about it. Even worse, Putin does not fear Obama, as can be seen from the Snowden affair, and now many other issues as well. His disrespect would clearly not be this profound had he had any chemistry with Obama. (Compare that with Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s, whose relationship remained intact despite repeated political crises).

As a front-page article last year in The New York Times noted, President Obama fails miserably at personal relationships. The article said: “The tensions between Mr. Obama and the Gulf states, both American and Arab diplomats say, derive from an Obama character trait: he has not built many personal relationships with foreign leaders. ‘He’s not good with personal relationships; that’s not what interests him,’ said one United States diplomat. “But in the Middle East, those relationships are essential. The lack of them deprives DC of the ability to influence leadership decisions.” Of course, Obama’s Middle East foreign policy– from Benghazi to Egypt – has failed miserably. Both sides of the conflict in Egypt, Syria and elsewhere are against Obama.

Obama publicly lectured China’s President Xi Jinping (who hit back) about China’s disputes with its neighbors. The concept of speaking privately doesn’t exist for Obama (except when he whispers to Russian leaders about his ability to be more lenient in his 2nd term).

Obama even manages to alienate close American allies. As UK media has highlighted in the last few weeks, “The special relationship is over,” in referring to the long-term partnership between the US and the UK. Obama has been insulting and disrespectful to Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and critical of Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai and many others.

As legendary journalist Bob Woodward noted, Obama has no personal relationships with political leaders – Senators or Congressmen – in either party. In addition to being ineffective, he is simply not likeable. There is not a single country with better relations – politically or personally – with America than when Obama took office.

Compare Obama’s behavior and interpersonal skills with Roger Ailes, who created Fox News, the most influential American news station. Ailes, whom Obama once called “the most powerful man in America,” is a study in decency, success and leadership, as one can learn from multiple sources, including Zev Chafets’ unauthorized biography “Roger Ailes: Off Camera.”

Ailes prides himself as a “blue-blood,” a self-made man who values honesty, loyalty, who was followed by more than eighty employees when he left CNBC. Ailes works hard and demands excellence from his employees; noteworthy are the many interpersonal relationships the fierce, right-wing conservative maintains with people he doesn’t agree with. He has had a longstanding, close personal relationship for more than 40 years with Barbara Walters, and a good friendship with uber-liberal Rachel Maddow. He is close with the Kennedy family for many years, and Chris Cuomo says Ailes is a “brilliant teacher” and someone he considers a close friend with whom he discusses personal and professional challenges and problems. Jesse Jackson and uber-liberal Congressman Dennis Kucinich are friends who trust and respect Ailes.

Tom Johnson was head of CNN when CNN & Fox had bitter battles, and has been quoted as saying, “I enjoyed my personal relationship with Roger Ailes.” It has been noted that they quietly collaborated on matters of mutual importance. Something, once again, Obama could probably learn a ton about. Another former head of CNN, Rick Kaplan, said, “The truth is in our business he is admired – I love Roger Ailes.”

Ailes has an employee rulebook with some simple rules that Mr. Obama could learn a lot from, including now with the Syria communications crisis: “Nothing is more important than giving your word and keeping it. Don’t blame others for your mistakes.” Simple, Ailes prizes loyalty and honesty. More values which Obama can learn. Perhaps Obama can also learn from Ailes on foreign policy. Ailes said, “Strength breeds peace. Nobody walks into a bar and picks a fight with the toughest looking guy in the place.”

Obama and Ailes had an exchange in 2008 when they met in Manhattan about Obama’s concerns over how Fox was covering him in the media. As reported in “Roger Ailes: Off Camera,”

Ailes told Obama he was concerned about Obama’s strength on national-security issues. The candidate assured Ailes that he had nothing to worry about. “Well, why are you going around talking about making cuts in weapons systems?” asked Ailes. “If you’re going to cut, why not at least negotiate them and get something in return?” Obama said that Ailes had been misinformed; he was not advocating unilateral cuts. “He said this looking me right in the eyes,” says Ailes. “He never dropped his gaze, which is the usual tell. It was as good a lie as anyone ever told me. I said, ‘Senator, I just watched someone say exactly that on my computer screen before coming over here. Maybe it wasn’t you, but it sure looked like you and sounded like you. I think it was you.

While Fox News is more watched and more profitable than all the other cable networks put together, Obama has harmed America immensely with his inept conduct. From foreign policy to economics to American honor, America has never been at a lower point politically, and it continues to be mired in the worst economic depression since the Great Depression.

Of course, since his election, Obama, the most powerful man in the world, has consistently portrayed himself as the underdog, whether blaming failure on President Bush or someone else. Roger Ailes has a different view on responsibility, saying “If you run into people who are negative, and always telling you that the cat got ran over, and you couldn’t get the car started and you’ve got a cold, the suits are idiots and life isn’t fair, you know, you need to get away from those people because they will suck you under and hold you down and drown you.”

The President is at fault for talking too much and not doing enough. He is failing miserably with people at all levels and with what needs to be done. While being President of the United States is nothing like being a President of a media organization, it should be noted that Ailes is the most successful television executive of all-time, and Obama is arguably the worst President in modern history. Obama shall leave behind a legacy of disaster.

Obama should watch and learn more from Fox News – perhaps he can improve as President of the United States of America.

GEORGE SOROS, OBAMA AND THE PROGRESSIVES HAVE BENCHED UNCLE SAM

BY DANIEL HENNINGER
The Benching of Uncle Sam – A GOP Syria vote shouldn’t ratify U.S. decline at home and abroad.

David Axelrod on Saturday gave his opinion on the situation in Syria with a tweet on Twitter: “Congress is now the dog that caught the car.” On Wednesday, the president of the United States retweeted Mr. Axelrod’s 43-character analysis. He said in Stockholm that the credibility at stake in the decision on Syria isn’t his. Instead, it is “America’s,” and “Congress’s credibility,” and the “international community’s credibility.” Mr. Obama looks like the dog who ran away from the car.

The purpose of Mr. Obama’s fantastic statements Wednesday could not be more obvious: He is trying to drive the Republicans into a “no” vote on the Syria resolution. He is shirking presidential responsibility for the U.S.’s role in the world. He doesn’t want that responsibility.

The GOP should not be a party to this abdication. It should vote for a resolution authorizing Mr. Obama to act militarily in Syria. After that bipartisan vote, it will be Barack Obama who caught the presidency.

With the presidency comes the job of commander in chief. He never wanted that job. He wanted to let the U.S.’s global status decline while he dallied at home with windmills, college rankings and health data.

Now he has to step up. An authorization vote on a discrete world crisis will force the inconstant Mr. Obama to focus and think about the world with the seriousness it requires from the president of the United States.

Republicans should support an authorization on Syria for the same reason they are opposing him on ObamaCare: to stop America’s decline. Whether by design or incompetence, Barack Obama’s policies are putting in motion a historic American reversal at home and abroad.

If this were September 2015, it wouldn’t matter. But we are little more than eight months into Mr. Obama’s second four years. A responsible and loyal opposition would recognize that it is not in the interests of the U.S., or the world, to have an irreparably damaged U.S. president this early in his second term.

Americans, including those in Congress, wake up every day to a country that was handed to them by earlier generations of Americans after World War II. The United States had become the world’s pre-eminent nation. Great nations, however, are not like planets passing through the sky in fixed orbits. They can drop.

Republicans understand the dangers of domestic economic decline. That is why they are opposing this president on ObamaCare, spending and the national debt.

Growth in the Obama years has hovered around 2%, way off the century-long average of 3.3% that produced abundance and prosperity for the U.S. Signs of economic revival have begun to appear, but the Obama economic agenda is a structural impediment to the sustained, higher growth rates that produced the American Century.

A less prosperous America is acceptable to Barack Obama and his progressive supporters, who have convinced themselves that the distribution of wealth in the U.S. since its founding has been “unjust.” If public policy can forcibly redistribute U.S. wealth, a lower level of economic growth is acceptable. Relative to America’s achievement, this will be decline.

What is unique about the Obama presidency is that American decline as a world power won’t, as with Europe, be the unhappy result of wealth redistribution. It is part of Mr. Obama’s agenda. In future crises, Mr. Obama said in his 2009 Cairo speech and elsewhere, the U.S. would act only after building “international consensus,” which meant the United Nations or the faded European allies. An Obama aide called this “leading from behind.” That is what the U.S. did in Libya. This partnership-of-equals policy was the basis for the failed Russian reset.

In short, Barack Obama’s view of the U.S. role in the world is that the time has come to bench Uncle Sam.Uncle sam Benched

The end of what they call “the American imperium” is a policy goal progressive activists have sought for decades. If Republicans vote to defeat a resolution on using military power against Assad, whose victory may let Iran and Russia achieve hegemony in the Middle East, it will be a vote to take Uncle Sam out of the world power game.

That will give Barack Obama a reason to proceed with the downsizing of America at home and in the world for the rest of his term. The depressed GOP hawks on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who voted on Wednesday against authorization are merely enabling this outcome.

This will put the U.S. in a very bad place. Those who think their president can begin reversing all this in 2017 are dreaming. A sinking world power is the heaviest lift imaginable. Ask Winston Churchill.

Legitimate questions exist about a Syria resolution—about goals, means and the status of the opposition forces—and they should be addressed. But that’s not the issue being raised here. The American decline put in motion under this presidency is real, not speculative. We are not at the edge of the cliff, but in September 2013 we are at a serious inflection point.

As they vote, the Republicans in Congress should make clear that they understand the historic stakes. The American people, who the last time I looked weren’t interested in throwing in the towel, will appreciate hearing something that sounds like leadership.

A version of this article appeared September 5, 2013, on page A13 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with the headline: The Benching of Uncle Sam.

TRINITY CHURCH MEMBERS REVEAL OBAMA SHOCKER!

obam_wright_350After nearly four years in office, many Americans still express frustration that much about Barack Obama remains a mystery as establishment media remain incurious about the Democratic president, while seemingly ready to dispatch crack investigative teams at a moment’s notice to probe into the personal lives of Republican figures such as Sarah Palin. Largely ignored in 2008 was research by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on contacts developed with members of the church Obama attended for two decades, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. This is the first of a series of articles WND has developed from months of in-person interviews with church members who have known Barack and Michelle Obama over many years. The sources requested that their identities not be published because they believe their disclosures would put their security at risk.

NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public.

It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama.

Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church who claim the president benefited from Wright’s efforts to help black men who engage in homosexual activity appear respectable in black society by finding them a wife.

The 2003 New York Times story, “Double Lives on the Down Low,” said that though many black men reject “a gay culture they perceive as white and effeminate,” they “have settled on a new identity, with its own vocabulary and customs and its own name: Down Low.”

The Times said that while “there are black men who are openly gay, it seems that the majority of those having sex with men still lead secret lives, products of a black culture that deems masculinity and fatherhood as a black man’s primary responsibility – and homosexuality as a white man’s perversion.”

The Down Low Club at Trinity “doesn’t have meetings, and it isn’t like the Rotary Club,” a source identified for this article as “Carolyn” explained to a WND investigator in Chicago.

“It was more that Wright served as a matchmaker,” said Carolyn, a 20-year member of Trinity who has played a role in church administration and knows the Obamas personally.

“He kept his eye on the young guys coming up in Trinity,” she said, “and if he spotted someone that acted or looked gay, then Wright would give them kind of a guidance counselor-type direction on how to keep down low – how to do the things they wanted to do, but then also getting married and looking ‘respectable’ – being part of black society.”

To Trinity insiders, the Down Low Club was simply known as “the program.”

“That’s the terminology. At Trinity, you’re urged to ‘get with the program,’” explained a male beneficiary of the Down Low Club. “What that means is it’s OK to go ahead and have sex with men, just as long as you ‘get with the program’ and marry a woman, somebody no straight guy would want to marry.”

The wife, the Down Low Club member explained, is “your ‘beard,’ your cover – so you can look like you’re living a straight life, even though you’re not.”

The male source was a “computer consultant” who claims not to know “scratch” about computers. But “getting with the program” at Trinity meant he could keep living a “gay” life and receive lots of computer consulting work thrown his way by Trinity, as long as he was willing to marry an unattractive woman who otherwise might have ended up a lonely spinster with no means to provide for living.

Carolyn explained that for many black families, attending Trinity was a way out of poverty.

“Trinity was a chance to network,” she said. “The stuff preached was hateful, but about 70 percent of those who go there ignore the radical rhetoric and just trying to get ahead.”

Carolyn said Trinity “helped a lot of blacks get successful and connected.”

“That’s what Wright did for Obama,” she claimed. “He connected Obama in the community, and he helped Obama hide his homosexuality.”

Openly homosexual author and commentator Keith Boykin, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, mentions Obama’s former pastor, Wright, on pages 264-265 of his 2005 book “Beyond the Down Low: Sex, Lies, and Denial in Black America.” While Boykin doesn’t refer to the Down Low Club by name, he regards Wright as among a small group of ministers who are “coming to grips with sexuality and opening up a dialogue with heterosexuals, homosexuals, and bisexuals in the pews.”

Chicago-based author, businessman, speaker and HIV/AIDS activist J.L. King wrote a controversial book in 2005 called “On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men who Sleep with Men.”

He was a guest on Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago-based TV show in 2004, which described him this way: “J.L. King had a life most would envy. He married his high school sweetheart, had two healthy children and was on the fast track to success. But, unbeknownst to his family and friends, he had a dark secret—he was living on the down low.”

Remember the choir director

Carolyn and the other members of Trinity who provided statements corroborating her testimony were insistent that WND conceal their identities as a condition of being interviewed.

“I’m still scared to discuss any of this,” Carolyn said.

“At Trinity, if you even hint at talking about Obama being gay, you are reminded of our dear departed choir director,” she said. “He was killed, and it wasn’t a robbery. The Christmas presents weren’t touched. The TV was not taken, nothing in the apartment was missing.”

Carolyn’s reference was to Donald Young, the 47-year-old homosexual choirmaster at Trinity who died of multiple gunshot wounds in his Chicago apartment Dec. 24, 2007.

Young’s murder was preceded Nov. 17, 2007, with the execution-style murder of 25-year-old Larry Bland, another black gay member of Trinity United. He also was murdered in his home, dying of multiple gunshot wounds, according to his death certificate.

Just two days after the murder of Young, a third openly “gay” member of Wright’s church, Nate Spencer, reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia and AIDS.

Sensational charges

As WND reported last month, a prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House.

In April, WND reported a federal judge dismissed a libel case against Larry Sinclair, a homosexual who claimed Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign had paid to rig a polygraph test regarding Sinclair’s sensational charge that he had sex and used cocaine twice with Obama while Obama was an Illinois state senator. Sinclair tells his story in “Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder.”

WND also reported former radical activist John Drew has said that when he met Obama when Obama was a student at Occidental College, he thought Obama and his then-Pakistani roommate were “gay” lovers.

In addition, rumors have swirled around Obama’s relationship with his personal aide and former “body man,” Reggie Love, who resurfaced on the eve of the Republican National Convention to support his old boss. Love resigned from the White House in November 2011 after compromising photographs of him as a college student received wide circulation.

WND also has documented in two separate articles, here and here, that Obama wore a gold band on his wedding ring finger from the time he attended Occidental College through his student days at Harvard Law School.

Shocking phone call

Sinclair gave an affidavit to the Chicago Police Department regarding contacts he says he had with Young just prior to Young’s murder.

According to Sinclair’s affidavit, published in its entirety beginning on page 56 of his book, he contacted Obama’s presidential campaign in September 2007. Sinclair says he requested that Obama correct claims he made about when he stopped abusing drugs to reflect use of crack cocaine during their sex encounters in November 1999.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama had stated famously he stopped using marijuana and cocaine in college, implying his drug abuse ended when he had completed his first two years of college at Occidental in Los Angeles.

Sinclair explained that when he made contact with the Obama campaign in September 2007, he provided callback numbers, in case the campaign wanted to get in touch with him.

Then, in late September or early October 2007, as Sinclair stated in his affidavit, he received a call from a male identifying himself as “Mr. Young,” who stated he was responding to calls Sinclair had made to the Obama campaign.

“This first call shocked me in that this ‘Mr. Young’ asked me why I had not asked Senator Obama to disclose sexual encounters I had with Mr. Obama in 1999,” Sinclair’s affidavit reads. “I was shocked as I had never mentioned to the campaign or anyone working for the campaign any sexual encounters. The call ended with Mr. Young stating I would hear from someone in a few days.”

Sinclair claims it was in a second call from “Mr. Young” that he began to suspect the man had been sexually intimate with Obama. Sinclair said he drew that conclusion “by the tone of the conversation” and by its “sexual nature.”

In late October 2007, Sinclair received a text message from “Mr. Young” stating Young “was intimately involved with Senator Obama and that Obama was discussing with him and his pastor how to publicly acknowledge Senator Obama’s drug use in 1999.”

The text message also indicated Obama wanted to make sure Sinclair had not discussed the sexual encounters or drug use with any media at that time.

In November 2007, Sinclair received a second text message from “Mr. Young,” advising him that Obama would publicly correct his statement as to the last time he used drugs and that Sinclair did not need to concern himself with publicly disclosing it.

Then, in early December 2007, Sinclair received his last contact with “Mr. Young,” with Young making it clear Obama had no intention of acknowledging publicly his use of crack cocaine in 1999.

After Young was murdered, Sinclair had several contacts with Young’s family.

“In several telephone conversations with his sisters, brothers, nieces and others, I was reassured that the family of Donald Young believed he was murdered to protect Barack Obama,” Sinclair wrote. “It also became clear, right from the start that members of the Young family were truly fearful of speaking out publicly, to this day, they fear for their own personal, physical safety.”

On July 17, 2010, the supermarket tabloid The Globe published an interview with Norma Jean Young, the 76-year-old mother of the slain choirmaster, in which she expressed fear that her son was murdered to protect Obama.

“What was the cause of my son’s death?” Norma Jean Young asked in the Globe interview. “I’m very suspicious that it may have been related to Obama. Donald and Obama were very close friends. Whatever went on with this is very private. I am suspicious of a cover-up!”

She insisted there is “more to the story,” calling on Chicago police to ramp up their investigation.

“I do believe they are shielding somebody or protecting somebody,” she told The Globe.

Asked who would benefit from a cover-up, Norma Jean Young said, “It could be anyone, including Obama.”

Shortly after the Globe interview was published, Norma Jean Young left Chicago and lived for a while in Peoria, Ill. Her current residence is unknown.

The murders of Donald Young and Larry Bland remain today open cases of unsolved homicide.

Zimmerman, Alinsky and Obama

by Jack Kerwickalinsky-obama-marx1

When Barack Obama ran for the presidency five years ago, pundits on both the left and right reassured the country that the election of America’s “first black president” promised to issue forth a new era of interracial harmony.

Some of us, however, knew all too well that this was the kind of stuff that only fools and liars could peddle. In fact, we predicted that, far from inaugurating a “Post-Racial” America, cries of “racism” were sure to increase if Obama seized the White House. Unfortunately, in retrospect, we appear to have been prescient.

We knew, first of all, that there is indeed such a thing as the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) that is every bit as massive as any other industry. Ideologically, professionally, and even emotionally, RIC agents are deeply invested in sustaining their narrative of endemic “white racism” and perpetual “black suffering.” The election of a black man to the most visible and potent office on the planet threatens that narrative.

Thus, the cries of “racism” would have to become both more frequent and more extravagant if RIC was to continue to flourish.

Secondly, we also knew that, given his background, racial unity would be the last thing on Obama’s mind. Quite the contrary: Obama’s lifelong preoccupation with achieving racial “authenticity” and his passion for “community organizing” foretold a presidency that would be accompanied by endless crises—including and especially racial crises.

The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is the latest such crisis that Obama is exploiting for all that it is worth.

Far from using his influence to effect some measure of calm, last Friday, following a week of mayhem in which roving mobs of blacks disrupted cities, destroyed property, and randomly subjected innocent whites and others to violence, the President decided to exacerbate this situation.

It is crucial, Obama maintained, that we—i.e. white folks—understand why blacks share “a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario” as was Trayvon Martin on the night that he was shot dead by George Zimmerman, “from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

Blacks suffer “pain” over the Zimmerman verdict because they are “looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.” But this past is very much alive in the present, according to Obama, for to this day, black men continue to fall prey to the sinister machinations of wicked white racial profilers. Moreover, even Obama himself isn’t safe from this virulent white “racism.”

Most black men, including Obama, have “had the experience of being followed while shopping in a department store.” Most black men, including Obama, share “the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars.” Most black men, including Obama, have “had the experience of getting on an elevator” and seeing “a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.”

Ironically, immediately upon lamenting the ugliness of this racial profiling, Obama unwittingly acknowledges its reasonableness, for he assures us that blacks have no delusions concerning “the disproportionately” high rates of black criminality and the fact that “they’re disproportionately both perpetrators and victims of violence.” Yet even this, he is quick to observe, “is born out of a very violent past in this country[.]”

In other words, while blacks do indeed act more violently than others, this too is because of the oppressive “racist” treatment to which whites have traditionally subjected them.

To the intimidation and wanton cruelty in which the anti-Zimmerman forces have engaged in the aftermath of Zimmerman’s acquittal, Obama spoke not a word except to caution them against “dishonoring” the memory of Trayvon Martin.

So, why did Obama insert himself in this case in the first place? Why has he chosen to fan the flames of an already combustible situation and all but justify even the violence that has been done to innocent person and property?

Answer: Obama is first and always a “community organizer”—a community agitator.

As the Godfather of community agitating, Saul Alinksy, wrote, the agitator should always seek to “cause confusion, fear,” “to agitate to the point of conflict,” and “stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.” The agitator “begins his ‘trouble making’ by stirring up these angers, frustrations, and resentments, and highlighting specific issues or grievances that heighten controversy.” He also “dramatizes the injustices[.]”

The agitator has but one objective: the construction of a “mass power base of what he calls the army.”

Obama most definitely does not want interracial harmony in America. He never did. He wants—he needs—mutual antagonism between the races. It is in his interest, as well as that of his party, for the members of his black base to be ruled by an “us versus them” mentality when it comes to race relations.

This is why Obama has fueled the persecution of George Zimmerman and the Brown Shirt tactics of the black mobs that have taken to the streets courtesy of the inspiration of the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Eric Holders, and, yes, Obamas of the world.

And this is why, politically, the acquittal of Zimmerman was a win for Obama.
