Jimmy Carter's Successor Emerges: Obama to Haunt Us for Many Years to Come

Jimmy Carter is ill with cancer, but a globetrotting narcissistic successor, steeped in progressive hatred of Israel, is already emerging. In a New York Times article entitled "With High-Profile Help, Obama Plots Life After Presidency," Michael D. Shear and Gardiner Harris inform us:

"Publicly, Mr. Obama betrays little urgency about his future. Privately, he is preparing for his postpresidency with the same fierce discipline and fund-raising ambition that characterized the 2008 campaign that got him to the White House.

The long-running dinner this past February is part of a methodical effort taking place inside and outside the White House as the president, first lady and a cadre of top aides map out a postpresidential infrastructure and endowment they estimate could cost as much as $1 billion."

One billion dollars! Can you even begin to imagine the impact that this amount could have on hunger in America?

But then, what is one billion dollars compared with the $2.5 billion that Hillary plans to spend in order to become America's next president?

May the Lord have mercy on us!

    "...there are a wide range of issues that Obama is expected to focus his efforts on, including criminal-justice reform, promoting civic engagement among youth, promoting diplomatic efforts and buttressing foreign-policy projects, health care, and fighting income inequality.

    It’s a lot to take in—even for a man who is currently the president of the United States. Perhaps that explains what guests identified as Obama’s preferred libation for his planning events and dinners: an extra-dry Grey Goose vodka martini. "

  2. The so-far under-reported real legacy, and the real agenda of blacklivesmatter:

    "While we acknowledge that the apartheid configuration in Israel/Palestine is unique from the United States (and South Africa), we continue to see connections between the situation of Palestinians and Black people. Israel’s widespread use of detention and imprisonment against Palestinians evokes the mass incarceration of Black people in the US, including the political imprisonment of our own revolutionaries.

    Soldiers, police, and courts justify lethal force against us and our children who pose no imminent threat. And while the US and Israel would continue to oppress us without collaborating with each other, we have witnessed police and soldiers from the two countries train side-by-side.

    US and Israeli officials and media criminalize our existence, portray violence against us as “isolated incidents,” and call our resistance “illegitimate” or “terrorism.” These narratives ignore decades and centuries of anti-Palestinian and anti-Black violence that have always been at the core of Israel and the US. We recognize the racism that characterizes Israel’s treatment of Palestinians is also directed against others in the region, including intolerance, police brutality, and violence against Israel’s African population. Israeli officials call asylum seekers from Sudan and Eritrea "infiltrators" and detain them in the desert, while the state has sterilized Ethiopian Israelis without their knowledge or consent. These issues call for unified action against anti-Blackness, white supremacy, and Zionism." ... "

  3. The enduring legacy: destruction of the Democratic Party:

    "As historians begin to assess Barack Obama’s record as president, there’s at least one legacy he’ll leave that will indeed be historic—but not in the way he would have hoped. Even as Democrats look favorably ahead to the presidential landscape of 2016, the strength in the Electoral College belies huge losses across much of the country. In fact, no president in modern times has presided over so disastrous a stretch for his party, at almost every level of politics. ...

    The party’s record over the past six years has made clear that when Barack Obama leaves office in January 2017 the Democratic Party will have ceded vast sections of the country to Republicans, and will be left with a weak bench of high-level elected officials. It is, in fact, so bleak a record that even if the Democrats hold the White House and retake the Senate in 2016, the party’s wounds will remain deep and enduring, threatening the enactment of anything like a “progressive” agenda across much of the nation and eliminating nearly a decade’s worth of rising stars who might help strengthen the party in elections ahead.
