President Obama took a brief respite from his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to address the ongoing rioting in Ferguson, Missouri. President Obama stated during the news conference:
And when something like this happens, the local authorities, including the police, have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death and how they are protecting the people in their communities. There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. And here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground.
Perhaps we should analyse this statement sentence by sentence in light of who is doing the rioting and looting (blacks) and the record of this President, who is black.
Obama: “And when something like this happens, the local authorities, including the police, have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death and how they are protecting the people in their communities.”
This is a direct attack against Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson (who is white) and the entire Ferguson police department (66% of which is white). It is like the pot calling the kettle white by accusing Chief Jackson of not being “open and transparent.” President Obama has himself been accused of not being open and transparent by the Huffington Post here, here, here and here. As HuffPo’s Calvin Woodward writes, “It’s as if the United States has two governments, one open and one very much not. President Barack Obama leads both, trying not to butt heads with himself.”
President Obama is the last man to criticize any police department of not being open and transparent. It appears President Obama is once again butting heads with himself.
Obama: “There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting.”
Unless you are President Obama. President Obama has used tragedy to loot America. As President Obama’s former Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emmanuel stated, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” All the Ferguson blacks are doing, with the help of black leaders like Al Sharpton, is using this shooting to “do things you could not do before.”
President Obama has used various crisis, on multiple occasions, to bypass Congress via Executive Orders as reported here, here, here and here. Whether it is the current immigration crisis, financial crisis or a shooting (remember Obama saying Trayvon Marin could have been me). President Obama never lets a crisis go to waste to loot (increase taxes and expand federal regulations) and vandalize (use the IRS and DOJ to take down political opponents or infringing on the Second Amendment rights of individuals).
Obama: “There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.”
What about the IRS using excessive force to stifle the First Amendment rights of ordinary citizens? What about the IRS targeting St. Louis reporter Larry Conners? What about the U.S. DOJ charging Dinesh D’Souza, producer of the films Obama 2016 and America? What about President Obama investigating the Ferguson Police Department to potentially stifle their ability to do their law enforcement job?
Obama: “And here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground.”
What about the Obama Department of Justice targeting (bullying) twenty reporters from the Associated Press and charging (bullying) James Rosen under the Espionage Act of 1917? According to Wikipedia:
On May 13, 2013, the Associated Press announced telephone records for 20 of their reporters during a two-month period in 2012 had been subpoenaed by the Justice Department. AP reported the Justice Department would not say why it sought the records, but news sources noted the US Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia was conducting a criminal investigation into a May 7, 2012, AP story about a CIA operation which prevented the Yemeni terrorist Fahd al-Quso’s plot to detonate an explosive device on a commercial flight. The DOJ did not direct subpoenas to the Associated Press; instead, the subpoenas were issued to their telephone providers, including Verizon Wireless.
The AP claimed these acts were a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into news-gathering operations. Gary Pruitt, CEO of the Associated Press stated: “These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the news gathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s news gathering operations and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know.”
The U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington responded that federal investigators seek records from news outlets only after making “every reasonable effort to obtain information through alternative means.”Verizon neither challenged the subpoena nor did it try to alert the journalists whose records were being requested. Debra Lewis, Verizon Wireless spokeswoman, said the company “complies with legal processes for requests for information by law enforcement.”
You see President Obama looks and acts just like Ferguson blacks. The only difference is he is President of the United States of America.
