Washing Hillary's Mouth

I maintain that 'political correctness' has as much to do with what is correct — i.e. true — as 'ethnic cleansing' has to do with personal hygiene.” – Clifford May

Mr. May brilliantly exposes “political correctness” as what it is: anti-American, anti-First Amendment word burning. This is the Democrats' go-to political strategy to control—or severely limit—the social discourse. Hillary Clinton polarizes via hate speech: demonizing the proponents of traditional American values.

Mrs. Clinton was wrong to proclaim half of Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables”: racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or Islamaphobic. This basket case needs a mirror. What of the election of a two-term black president? What of commonplace interracial, and newly legalized gay marriage? She's the one who needs “redemption,” not us.

Unlike the human rights violating foreign governments the Clinton Foundation readily accepts money from, America is one of the most tolerant societies on earth.

Our problems are physical safety, and the economic: debt, joblessness, porous borders, government overreach and terrorism. Progressives focus on these non-existent “weather” problems to distract from their failed policies. And specifically in Hillary's case, her failed record, lawbreaking and corruption.

Obama “Whips” the Black Community

I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good send-off? Go vote.” – President Obama at the annual Congressional Black Caucus gala on September 17, 2016

The “massa” of the White House, Barack Obama, has decreed: 'A vote for Hillary is a vote for me!' With the gap evaporating between crooked Clinton and outsider Trump, Mr. Obama is whipping up this crucial voting bloc (which cast ballots for him above 90% in the past two presidential elections). Obama repeatedly panders to the lowest common denominator, the skin-deep consideration of race. Yet, due directly to his presidency no group has economically suffered more than the black community. Therefore, Mr. Obama's audacity in expecting their support (for his would-be successor) is frankly galling. Once again, for this president, everything is about him: a “personal insult”; his “legacy”; giving him a “good send-off.”

“Kingly” Obama has lived exceedingly well. Unfortunately, the vast majority of his fellows—from Chicago and beyond—cannot make the same claim. In one telling example, black youth unemployment was 393% higher than the national average. Further, the poverty rate for the black population is now 25.8%. He pretends these deep-seeded problems, among many, do not exist. That makes him a rank political opportunist (in addition to being the worst president of the modern age).

A new Census report on income and poverty shows 43 million Americans are poor. That's one in seven: equivalent to every resident in the most populated state of California (38.8 million) plus Oregon (4 million). To add context, 3.2 million families have fallen below the poverty line since Obama assumed office—and 93 million Americans remain unemployed.

Barack Obama's only concern is preserving his nation-destroying policies. Therefore, he wants to keep all black folks on the Democrat's poverty plantation (read: subsistence living via big government dependence). Like Hillary says 'ignore your lying eyes' to her wrongdoing, Mr. Obama says 'ignore your empty pockets.' That anyone would trust this snake oil salesman—or want a continuation of the disastrous Obama years—is frankly mind-boggling. He's played American liberals for suckers from Day One. That includes all black voters blindly heeding the “master's” call to keep anti-American progressives in power.

Resegregating Obama's America

The amazing aftermath of Birmingham, the sweeping Negro Revolution, revealed to people all over the land that there are no outsiders in all these fifty states of America. … The bell of man's inhumanity to man does not toll for any one man [or student group]. It tolls for you, for me, for all of us.” – Martin Luther King, on racial discrimination

In 2016, hard-fought '50s and '60s social gains have been eroded at California State University Los Angeles. Leave it to deluded millennials—wholly ignorant of the meaning of Civil Rights struggles—to thumb their entitled noses at Brown v. Board of Education (of Topeka), 347 U.S. 483 (1954). In that historic integration decision the Supreme Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools based upon the superficiality of race unconstitutional. So, today that landmark determination is suddenly wrong? In Obama's America separate is suddenly equal—and preferential?

Furthermore, in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1968—which guarantees equal housing opportunities regardless of race, color, creed or national origin—“guilty” school officials have capitulated to requests by the CSLA Black Student Union to provide race-exclusive housing (at the Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community). Only in the city known for liberal nutcases could an educational institution claim “... learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory” while simultaneously promoting a blatantly exclusionary policy. Is this George “1984” Orwell's dystopian Ministry of Inclusion at work?

Will this topsy-turvy generation also come to believe that retro black-only water fountains or lunch counters are good ideas? You know, the same “white-only” facilities that their grandparents risked life and limb to undo 60 years ago? In any case, how is black-focused housing not just a variation of theme: racial discrimination to everyone else? The very inhumanity—a hurtful skin-deep consideration—that MLK railed against?

It's a little spoken of 21st century conceit that black people can never be racists, only victims as such. This faulty assumption stems from our country's unfortunate involvement with slavery that ended in the 19th century. Of course, given the passage of time—and the natural evolution of social attitudes—only antiquated propaganda is promoted, not causal connections. Specifically, these false narratives are built around urban myths. One primary example is Michael Brown's 'hands up, don't shoot' which never happened. In turn, the social unrest fomented—based upon big MSM lies—has spread like wildfire to the coasts (fueled by George Soros' funding of Black Lives Matter anarchy). Related specifically to CSLA, how can Los Angeles—one of the most proudly multicultural and cosmopolitan U.S. cities—also be a hotbed for armies of racially motivated “microaggressors”?

Are these malcontents afraid of their own shadows on sunny days? Such perceptions defy reality—and common sense. One reasonably assumes these aggrieved CSLA students would see racism in a bowl of cornflakes and chocolate milk. In the real world, these coddled “safe spacers” fool no one with their politically correct demands. Ironically, while they claim nebulous slights, these isolationists do actual damage that is both thoughtless and intentional. Is it right to arbitrarily demonize the rest of the collegiate community?

In truth, regardless of skin color, any person who negatively evaluates another on the basis of race is, by definition, that. One does not overcome racism by promoting the same lifestyle and mind-set that is so despised in others. Beyond introductory courses in U.S. history and law, these jaded and time warped youngsters need a serious reality check. Rare “microaggressions” notwithstanding, 21st century America is so widely tolerant, it's quietly integrated. For additional proof, one need only consider the ethnicity of the current commander-in-chief. What of the collective character demonstrated by their faithful countrymen—in two elections—who made Mr. Obama's presidency a fact? These “sheltered” CSLA students should embrace these disregarded millions they hide from in their black-only housing.

Clinton's For-Profit “Bill U”

Greed... is good.” – Michael Douglas as corporate raider Gordon Gekko in “Wall Street” (1987)

A lot of these private-education guys, they’re looking to get into events [a State Department dinner] like this one. 'The discussion itself is irrelevant. . . . It gets you very high-level contacts, and it gets you to the right people.'” – Sam Pitroda, a higher-education expert representing a policy commission from India

Laureate International Universities paid Bill Clinton an obscene $17.6 million as their front man consultant and “honorary chancellor.” Despite a largely undefined (and perhaps non-existent?) role, Mr. Clinton's lucrative five year contract ended conveniently two weeks before the wife launched her latest campaign for U.S. president. Back in 2009, Hillary Clinton wrote “... Bill likes [founder, businessman Doug Becker] a lot.” Well, turns out Mr. Clinton has 17.6 million reasons for that.

Per their tax returns, Laureate runs 80 educational institutions the world over. Notably, four of its six U.S. colleges are on a U.S. Education Department watch list for fiscal monkey business. Specifically, debt-ridden students complained Laureate's flagship U.S. school, Walden University, is essentially a slow-roll online diploma mill delivering substandard programs and degrees. Naturally, this murkiness was of no concern to Bill Clinton. (One assumes all payments to him have cleared.) Yet, how does this latest example of Clintonian sleaziness not fall under the umbrella of payment for high-level access? In other words, the pay-to-play basis of the $2 billion dollar sham that is the “charitable” Clinton Family Foundation?

Even the sycophantic Washington Post acknowledged that the Clintons “mixed” their public and private dealings. They reported:

“[Doug] Becker, for example, donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and last year donated $2,700 to her current effort. Laureate has given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the charity’s website … Laureate portrayed its association with the Clintons as a symbol of its legitimacy rather than the result of a business deal.”

Only to the crooked does the word 'legitimacy' and the surname Clinton harmoniously coexist. Likewise, faceless—and blind—ethics officials in wifey's then State Department saw no conflict of interest. (Barack Obama laughably granted oversight to Mrs. Clinton on such matters.) “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer noted an increase in USAID funding of $55 million to the International Youth Federation—a sister organization run by selfsame Laureate founder Doug Becker—while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State. Why does not a single Democrat in government publicly acknowledge a problem with any of this?

At least some House Republicans see clear wrongdoing. Last July, sixty-four requested investigations by the Internal Revenue Service, FBI and Federal Trade Commission into “possible” corruption between Laureate and the Clintons. However, given closed-eyed dupes like FBI Director James Comey—and the current administration still at the helm—there's no chance another investigation will happen.

Interestingly, The Post further reported that Laureate was bought out in 2007 by George Soros (and partners) for $3.8 billion. What these “journalists” left out about trouble-making billionaire Soros is his domestic funding of the anarchist Black Lives Matter death cult. What a corrupt click, these incestuous and moneyed progressives. With paid-off politicians, is it any wonder why America is in chaos—with a mountainous 19.5T debt? That's not a problem for the uber-rich Clintons: currently worth $238 million. Moreover, besides wrongdoing in common, Barack Obama aims to be the first ex-president billionaire. Mr. Clinton may beat him to that pot o' gold.

Roger Stone of “Daily Caller” in his exposé called “Trump U Is Nothing Compared To Laureate Education” put the matter plainly:

“New York State law requires specific approvals for an entity to hold itself out as being a university. In this case CGI [Clinton Global Initiate](a fraud) created CGI University (a fraud) in league with Laureate, a fraud. Laureate is a highly leveraged failing investment whose principal beneficiaries are Wall Street fat cats and billionaires, and [at the center is] William Jefferson Clinton.”

"Middle Fingered" Obama Shown the Door

You must be respectful.” – potty-mouthed Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte

The Chinese enjoy their petty torments. Barack Obama's 10th and last excellent Asian adventure (a final, meaningless oriental photo-op) has met with unexpected snafus. Upon airport arrival, Chinese officials failed to provide the customary portable staircase for any U.S. president to disembark from the upper door of Air Force One. Mr. Obama was relegated to a smaller built-in staircase from the back end of the aircraft. The Dalai Lama would say this is Mr. Obama's karma for directing his holiness to a back door exit by the White House trash heaps in 2010. Apparently, the Chinese have returned the disrespect.

The karma continues. In Laos, Mr. Obama was to meet with new Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. That meeting was abruptly canceled after Mr. Duterte called him a “son of a whore” (for Obama's busybody objection to his country's extrajudicial killings of drug dealers.) Leave it to Barack Obama to always side with the criminal element. Support of his corrupt would-be successor Hillary Clinton comes to mind.

Speaking of respect, Donald Trump said, “If that were me, I'd say, 'You know what, folks, I respect you a lot, let's close the doors, let's get out of here.'” If Mr. Trump succeeds Mr. Obama, there will be no repeat bowing and scraping apology tour. Like Ronald Reagan, Mr. Trump will always command respect. For starters, that means politeness from hosting regimes—and entering or leaving with the appropriate stairways.

“Pimping” Progressives Ignore Black Community

It is a fact that for 54 years we have been voting for the Democratic Party like no other race in America. ... Where we’re being pimped [politically] like prostitutes ... [promised everything, but] we get nothing in return. We gotta step back now as black people and we gotta look at all the parties and vote our best interests. Barack Obama, our president, served two terms. The first black president ever, but did our condition get better? Did things get better? The condition got worse.” – Quanell X, Houston's New Black Panther leader

You live in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. What the hell do you have to lose?” – Donald Trump, on the black community mistakenly voting for Democrats rather than the GOP, the party of Abraham Lincoln

Ironically, the group that has suffered the most under the first black president, Barack Obama, is the black community. In one telling example, the black youth unemployment rate has been 393% higher than the national average. Even worse, his home city, nicknamed Chiraq (a combination of Chicago and Iraq), is more dangerous to his fellows than certain ISIS-controlled Middle East war zones. Recently, Bull's basketball player Dwyane Wade’s cousin, 32-year-old Nykea Aldridge, was shot to death on the south side while pushing her baby in a stroller. Comparing Chicago's death toll to American combat fatalities in Afghanistan, Washington Times columnist Tammy Bruce brilliantly summarized:

“In Afghanistan, from the start of the war in 2001 to August 2016, there have been 2,384 American casualties. In Chicago, since 2009 to August 2016, there have been 3,686 homicides. In other words, under President Obama’s watch, there have been 1,302 more people murdered in an American city in half the time compared to the longest war in U.S. history.”

That's overwhelmingly black-on-black homicide. Per the Chicago Tribune, Mr. Obama has made 25 trips since becoming president—mostly for fundraising and/or pleasure—with only 7 reportedly for policy issues such as community dysfunction. That works out to one visit per year for every year this president has breathed the rarefied air of the Washington bubble. Yet, Mr. Obama's blasé attitude is obvious. When one habitually (and frequently) vacations at millionaire playgrounds in Hawaii and Martha's Vineyard, why should he (or first lady, Michelle) care about the deplorable state of an abandoned former hometown?

Of course, Barack Obama doesn't. Beyond lip service “concern” of the rising body count, this is. Per the Free Beacon, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, “Well, I’m not aware of any specific prescription that the president’s prepared to put forward to address the situation just in Chicago.” What other response would one expect from this tragedy-ignoring president? He remained on a two week golfing vacation while Black Lives Matter burned Milwaukee, and Baton Rouge was deluged by major flooding. The fact that both calamities disproportionately affected black populations made absolutely no difference to him. Mr. Obama made a lackadaisically late appearance to the Louisiana disaster zone. For her part, Mrs. Clinton didn’t bother to show up at all.

In the modern era the pandered-to black community has repeatedly been duped into voting for “down with the struggle” Democrats at near 90%. These progressives purveyors of “black victimization” (read: blame “racist” whitey) show up every election cycle with closed eyes, and the promise of more welfare subsistence living. (In truth, Hillary Clinton is an outspoken admirer of white supremacist icon Margaret Sanger.) Right after Election Day, Democrats' do Mr. Obama's disappearing act. Anyone who thinks otherwise is indeed a victim—of self-inflicted ignorance.

Sometimes the light of new awareness emanates from unexpected places. If Quanell X, a Black Panther leader, acknowledges that Barack Obama has “pimped” and betrayed the black community, hopefully he will find similar courage to speak out against Mr. Obama's more-of-the-same would-be successor. Even unpatriotic, anthem-sitting QB Colin Kaepernick has brought needed attention to Mrs. Clinton history of demonizing the black community, “You have Hillary, who has called black kids, or black teens, ‘Super-predators.'” Likewise in 1996, she said, “We need to bring them to heel.” She's a self-obsessed elitist publicly uttering hate speech: no friend to black people—then or now.

By dumping Hillary minorities have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. True economic and social improvement for the downtrodden will only come from the GOP—and specifically border-securing, job-creating billionaire capitalist Donald Trump.
