President Barack Obama used his final press conference of 2014 to play a racist, sexist game of calling on only white women reporters. Was he pandering to a coveted Democratic Party voting bloc that supported Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections?

At the beginning of the press conference Obama noted he had been given a ‘naughty or nice’ list of reporters to call on by his staff. Obama called on seven white women in a row to ask him questions.

April Ryan, a Black woman who is the White House Correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Radio Networks forced Obama to go off script and call on her as he was trying to wrap up the press conference and leave the podium.

(Ryan is also the author of the forthcoming book The Presidency in Black and White.)

The seven white women Obama called on were Politico’s Carrie Budoff Brown, the AP’s Julie Pace, Bloomberg’s Cheryl Bolen, McClatchy’s Lesley Clark, Reuters’ Roberta Rampton, the Wall St. Journal’s Colleen Nelson and the Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin.

The Democrats were reported to have a problem with white women voters in the recent midterm elections that saw a historic drubbing for Obama and the Democrats.

“When you look at Tuesday’s election results by gender, it seems that the Democrats and Republicans split the women’s vote pretty evenly, with a few percentage points in favor of Dems. But when you examine that data by gender and race, you’ll get a wholly different picture that highlights an Achilles’ heel for Democrats: white women.

“Exit polls released by CNN show that white women’s votes went to the Republicans by a margin of 13 percent. Fifty-six percent of white women voted Republican while only 43 percent voted Democrat.

“And if you look at the numbers for black and brown women, you see just how big the race gap really is. Ninety percent of black women and 67 precent of Latina women voted Democrat. (It’s worth noting that Black and Latino men also voted for Democrats more than white women did—86 and 58 percent respectively.) Even when you break it down by age, the white vote went to Republicans. These numbers mean even more when you consider that white people make up two-thirds of the electorate, with the vote evenly split between white men and women.

“While the long game may be to focus on the emerging majority-of-color electorate, Democrats may be sacrificing today’s elections by overlooking the power of the white women’s vote. Both times that Barack Obama was elected president, there has been a pretty consistent line among advocates in the progressive feminist movement: “Women won the election.” But a small-but-important detail is often omitted: He actually lost with white women…”

 

 

Obama: I Spoke With & Joked With Raul Castro (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 1:34 PM

Barack Obama held his year end press conference before going on his mult-week vacation in Hawaii.
During the presser Obama admitted his spoke with and joked with Raul Castro, the communist tyrant from Cuba.
Obama spoke about his conversation with tyrant Raul Castro.

My opening comments took about 15 minutes which is an awful long time on the phone. At the end of that he said, “Mr. President, you’re still a young man.” I apologized for taking such a long time before we engaged in a conversation. You’re still a young man and you still have a chance to break Fidel’s record which is seven hours straight… And then President Castro delivered his own opening remarks which lasted twice as long as mine. And, I said, “It obviously runs in the family.”

Raul Castro said, “President Obama deserves respect and recognition.”

UNION LEADERS Plead Guilty to Arson, Violence and Extortion

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 10:45 AM

Three more union workers pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy, extortion and racketeering.

The three union members were among twelve people charged in this case.

All but one have pleaded guilty. Ironworkers 401 allegedly used violence and intimidation to get union members assigned to jobs at nonunion work sites.
ironworkers guilty

Breitbart reported:

Three more members of Ironworkers Local 401 in Philadelphia pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of conspiracy, extortion, and racketeering in an ongoing RICO case against the labor union. They join eight others who have pleaded guilty in recent months to charges related to arson, sabotage, and violent intimidation of contractors who used non-union labor.

Ironworkers 401 is a large and influential union, responsible for constructing many of Philadelphia’s landmarks, such as Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagle’s football stadium, and the Comcast Center, the city’s tallest building. But this year has brought a series of indictments and revelations that continue to produce serious fallout for the labor group and its allies.

The latest hit came on Tuesday, when union member Richard Ritchie and business agents William O’Donnell and Christopher Prophet entered plea agreements admitting to their role in a conspiracy to coerce non-union construction sites into using “unwanted, unnecessary, and superfluous union labor.”

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Prophet also pleaded to attempted extortion and Ritchie to attempted extortion and violent crime in aid of racketeering. In February, over 100 federal agents and police descended on Ironworkers Local 401, one of the biggest and most powerful unions in the Philadelphia area, sweeping up officials and members alleged to be part of the conspiracy. The federal indictment spans over 60 pages, alleging a coordinated effort by a network of union associates to locate and identify construction projects that used non-union workers (or the rival carpenters’ union) to do “ironwork.”

 

Obama Launches Task Force for 21st Century Policing – First Step to National Security Force?

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 9:26 AM

In 2008 Barack Obama announced his plan to build a massive “civilian national security force” here in America.

It would be just as well funded as the US military.

Here is what Barack Obama envisioned in 2008.
The Bulletin reported, via LGF:

“Loving your country shouldn’t just mean watching fireworks on the 4th of July,” he said. “Loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it. If you do, your life will be richer, our country will be stronger.”…

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said Wednesday. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

This week Barack Obama launched a task force in response to the high-profile cases of criminal suspects killed by police.
Breitbart.com reported:

The president has officially launched yet another “task force.” In response to several high-profile cases of suspects killed by police, Obama has brought together a group meant to review better policing practices.

“In light of the recent events in Ferguson, Staten Island, Cleveland, and around the country,” the White House website says, “the Administration announced new steps to strengthen the relationships between local police and the communities they are supposed to protect and serve. One of the primary actions was the creation of a task force to improve community policing.

Obama’s website goes on to explain that the “task force will examine how to strengthen public trust and foster strong relationships between local law enforcement and the communities that they protect, while also promoting effective crime reduction.”

Chairing the group will be Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. Co-chairing will be Laurie Robinson, professor of Criminology, Law, and Society at George Mason University and former Assistant Attorney General for DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs.

 

Giuliani Slams Spineless Hollywood: Now We’re Going to Have Al Sharpton as Jury & North Korea as Censor (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 9:04 AM

Sony Shakedown–
Yesterday Sony executive Amy Pascal met privately with Al Sharpton in New York City to repair the damage from the racist emails leaked by hackers.

Pascal agreed to let Al Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures.

On Friday Rudy Giuliani weighed in on spineless Hollywood.

I’ve always said you give them one chance. My goodness, I give speeches and I go back two hours later and say, “Oh my goodness they misunderstand those three words that I say. I didn’t mean it that way.” It’s getting to be ridiculous. So now in Hollywood we’re going to have Al Sharpton as the jury and North Korea as censor.

New Cash Cow for ISIS: Trafficking Human Organs from Kidnapped Captives

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, December 19, 2014, 7:36 AM

ISIS has found a new way to fund their jihad.
isis organ

It’s widely reported that the ISIS is funding their terror state by oil sales. But, there are now reports that ISIS is also profiting from human organ sales.

The caliphate is trafficking human organs from kidnapped captives.

AWD News reported, via Religion of Peace:

While the terror army ISIS is making millions of dollars a day through its oil sales, it also is profiting from trafficking in human organs, according to a number of reports that have raised the issue in recent months.

Even while the reports concede firm figures are practically impossible to corroborate, the Al-Alam news source said the chief of forensic pathology at Damascus University told the Syrian al-Watan that there have been more than 18,000 organ trafficking cases in the northern part of Syrian in recent years.

The report from Hossain Noufel said many of the victims are children.

“Syrian people … are now dealing with organ traffickers who are slicing off their own share from the unfortunate Syrian families,” the report said.

And according to BioEdge, which monitors bioethics developments around the world, a physician from Mosul told the publication Al-Monitor that large-scale organ-harvesting is taking place in local hospitals and that ISIS “was reaping significant profits from the scheme.”

The BioEdge report said the doctor, Siruwan Al-Mosuli, reported physicians were being hired to perform rapid organ removal operations from “recently deceased jihadis or captives.”

They are then “swiftly” moved to local or foreign buyers, the report said.

The BioEdge report said the doctor reported ISIS even has a specialized force that deals with organ trafficking.

 

That Didn’t Take Long… Charlie Rangel Is First Lawmaker to Do Live Interview From Havana

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, December 18, 2014, 11:11 PM

Maybe he’s hunting for cheap condos?

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) cheered Barack Obama’s plan to resume relations with Cuba.
Rangel was in Havana for the broadcast with a medical association.
The Washington Times reported:

Rep. Charlie Rangel, New York Democrat, hailed President Obama’s announced plans Wednesday to resume diplomatic relations with Cuba while the congressman was on the ground in Havana.

Mr. Rangel said he was in the country with a medical association “to exchange advancements that have been made” on treatment for diabetes.

“I have never been more proud to be an American,” Mr. Rangel told CNN Wednesday afternoon. “The Cuban people are dancing in the street and so many members of Congress and Americans are proud of the president for taking this historic position.”

Mr. Rangel acknowledged criticism of the move, but said that “in any event, we’re moving forward, it’s all good, it’s all positive, and the people will be speaking from the streets of Havana, New York, in California, in Miami, and I think that’s the best cure for the relationship that’s been so poor in the last half-a-century.”
