Exhibits You Won’t Find in the New National Museum of African American History and Culture, Part 1

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

exhibits

Many exhibits in the new $500 million National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. will be worthwhile. They will highlight the struggle to overcome slavery and give black people the rights they were promised in the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. Many black Americans have achieved great success. But black leadership in America, which is viewed by the media as almost exclusively liberal and Democratic, is not without major flaws. In addition, we think that the growing black conservative movement will not be given the attention it deserves. In the spirit of truth and transparency, we offer examples of exhibits that we have reason to believe, based on advance publicity, will not be available to those visiting the museum:

  • The Democratic Party’s history of slavery. The Republican Party was born in 1854 in opposition to slavery, and the Democratic Party was the party of slavery. As documented in Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, “Hillary’s America,” the Democratic Party is historically racist. Democratic President Woodrow Wilson attended a screening of the pro-KKK film, “The Birth of a Nation,” in the White House itself. Wilson was so racist that liberal Princeton students have demanded removal of his name from campus buildings. Hillary Clinton once called former Ku Klux Klan member Senator Robert K. Byrd (D-WV) her “mentor,” saying after his death, “Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor Robert C. Byrd.” As noted by The Daily Caller, Byrd joined the Klan because he was worried that during World War II, he might have to fight alongside “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” Yet, no Republican presidential candidate has gotten more than 15 percent of the black vote since 1965.
  • Black Lives Matter is a racist organization that praises cop-killer Assata Shakur. A Black Lives Matter T-shirt is on display in the museum, in order to highlight “contemporary” black issues. The “Black Lives Matter Exposed” project of Accuracy in Media looks at the violent nature of the organization, including its support for Assata Shakur, a member of the Black Liberation Army (BLA), a group that worked with the communist terrorist Weather Underground. Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, killed New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster “execution style” by shooting him in the head as he lay wounded by gunfire. Obama has highlighted the killings of black people in a campaign carried forward by his own Department of Justice against local police forces. Yet, Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute notes that, as of July 9 of this year, whites made up 54 percent of the 440 police shooting victims, compared to 28 percent who were black. In 2015, whites made up 50 percent of the 987 fatal police shootings, while blacks made up 26 percent.
  • The Communist mentor of the first black President. Barack Obama’s election as the first black president was facilitated by liberal media bias, since his father-son relationship with black Communist pornographer and pedophile Frank Marshall Davis was deliberately ignored by the liberal press. Liberals in the media knew that his association with a prominent communist would sink his campaign. In 2008, during his first run for office, the relationship was ignored by influential reporters like David Maraniss of The Washington Post, whose own parents were Communist Party members. Even the Drudge Report would not sell advertising to tell the story of Frank Marshall Davis. In 2012, newspapers like The New York Times and USA Today and conservative media like Newsmax refused advertising for the film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” which cited evidence that Davis was actually Obama’s real father. Obama admitted that Davis, a writer for communist publications, had instructed him that black people have “reason to hate.”
  • Martin Luther King Jr.’s womanizing, plagiarism, and communist advisers. While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a fighter for civil rights and showed unique courage in opposing racism, he has his own serious flaws. The evidence shows that both President John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby obtained and passed on information about King’s extramarital affairs and womanizing. It was information that had been obtained from FBI wiretaps on King authorized by Bobby himself. The Kennedy brothers, both anti-communist Democrats, were alarmed by King’s communist associations. One of King’s closest advisers was J.H. O’Dell, also known as Hunter Pitts O’Dell. He was a secret member of the Communist Party who would later join Jesse Jackson’s Operation PUSH. Another King adviser was New York attorney Stanley Levison, who had been involved in Communist Party financial affairs and was helping to arrange funding of the party by Moscow. He had recommended O’Dell to King. Despite his reputation as a moderate, Martin Luther King, Jr. paid tribute to W.E.B. Du Bois, who had joined the CPUSA himself in 1961, at an event sponsored by the Soviet-funded journalFreedomways in New York City. King’s opposition to American involvement in the war against communism in Vietnam was strongly influenced by his communist associations. The facts also show that the famed civil rights leader was a plagiarist who stole material from other people and claimed it as his own.
  • Unpatriotic black sports figures. The sports exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture highlights the positive impact of black athletes such as Jackie Robinson on American society. But unpatriotic displays have been more common recently. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. Kaepernick also has worn socks depicting police as pigs. President Obama commented, “I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about. If nothing else, he’s generated more conversation about issues that have to be talked about.” Kaepernick, the child of a black man, was raised by white parents and is making an $11.9 million base salary this year. Black athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos gave a Black Power raised fist salute, common among communists and socialists, during the 1968 Summer Olympics. Black Muslim boxer Cassius Clay, also known as Muhammad Ali, refused Army induction in 1967, saying, “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?” Protests against the Vietnam War, which were backed by the Soviet bloc and organized by domestic communist groups, forced a U.S. military withdrawal from Vietnam, leading to a communist takeover that produced hundreds of thousands of political prisoners and Vietnamese “boat people” trying to escape. Almost two million people were then murdered in a campaign of genocide in neighboring Cambodia, carried out by the communist Khmer Rouge. More than 58,000 Americans died trying to stop a communist takeover of Southeast Asia.
  • Paul Robeson: a black dupe of reds. A Soviet campaign was launched after the Russian revolution to exploit the “Negro question” in the U.S. and manipulate blacks and members of other minority groups for Communist purposes. The goal was a “Soviet America.” Although he invoked the Fifth Amendment when asked by a congressional committee about his party membership, the CPUSA admitted, after his death, that actor and singer Paul Robeson had been a party member. Former CPUSA official Manning Johnson had testified in 1949 that that he saw Robeson “a number of times in the headquarters” of the CPUSA and that Robeson was, in fact, a party member. Johnson said Robeson wanted to be “the Black Stalin among Negroes.” Johnson testified, “Paul’s assignment was to work among the intellectuals, the professionals, and artists that the party was seeking to penetrate and influence along Communist lines.”
  • Why Richard Wright broke with the Communist Party. Richard Wright, author of the classic texts Black Boy and Native Son, was a prominent black American author who joined the Communist Party but then became disillusioned by the party’s corruption and authoritarianism, and left it in 1942. He wrote an essay published in Atlantic Monthly in 1944 called “I Tried to Be a Communist,” which was later reprinted (with Wright’s permission) in the book, The God That Failed, a collection of anti-communist essays by ex-Communists.
  • The NAACP once opposed communism. For many years, black groups such as the NAACP were bitter foes of the Communist Party USA, knowing that its politics were divisive and not designed to foster racial harmony. NAACP official Herbert Hill wrote a famous article, “The Communist Party—Enemy of Negro Equality.” Hill said American blacks desired “integration and assimilation into all aspects of American life on the basis of complete equality,” but that the communists promoted separatism and what he called “super-jim-crowism.” Hill referred to “Communist carpet-baggers” who used nice-sounding front groups to dupe blacks, and called the Communist Party one of the “implacable enemies” of black equality.
  • The Black Conservative Movement. African-American Conservatives, Project 21,Black Conservatives Fund and Blacks for Trump are just a few of the black conservative groups in existence. Leading black conservatives include Jason Riley, author of Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder For Blacks To Succeed; Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution; former GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson; Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; D.C. Circuit Judge Janice Rogers Brown; South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott; and businessman Herman Cain.

Black Power Icon Goes Vegan to Save Animals

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

black-power

Former top communist, college professor and “Black Power” advocate Angela Davis has picked a new cause on the road to liberation—animal rights.

In a major speech in black-ruled South Africa, at the 17th Steve Biko Memorial Lecture, she said animals were “sentient beings who endure pain and torture as they are transformed into food for profit, food that generates disease in humans whose poverty compels them to rely on McDonald’s and KFC for nourishment.”

Hence, people who like fast food are both victims and exploiters in the capitalist system.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which places the rights of animals above human needs, was ecstatic. “Best known as a longtime human-rights activist, Davis is also a committed vegan, and she made sure to highlight the connection among all forms of exploitation and oppression in her keynote address,” the animal rights group said.

Davis’s image will adorn the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opens on September 24 in Washington, D.C.

The history exhibit at the new black museum “starts moving at a breathless but measurable clip, hero by hero—Angela Davis, Barbara Jordan, Shirley Chisholm, Anita Hill—and movement by movement, from Black Is Beautiful, to Black Panthers, to Black Lives Matter,”reports The New York Times.

Anita Hill was the “hero” professor whose false charges of sexual harassment against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas were rejected when the Senate confirmed the black conservative to the court.

Liberals don’t like to hear it, but Barbara Jordan, a former member of Congress, favored greater limitations on immigration into the United States.

Davis, who served the interests of the old Soviet Union and received the Lenin Peace Prize, once beat a murder rap and now makes tens of thousands of dollars on the college lecture circuit. Her emergence as a poster girl for PETA suggests that her Marxism has developed to the point where she thinks humans are oppressors of animals, and that chickens and cows are special interests worthy of government protection.

The Davis speech was delivered at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, and received a standing ovation. She praised the former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, whoconcealed his membership in the South African Communist Party, which now rules South Africa through a coalition government.

Turning her attention to the U.S, she hailed Black Muslim boxer Muhammad Ali for refusing induction into the U.S. Armed Forces and praised NFL back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick for protesting the “militaristic” U.S. national anthem.

On the road to her own personal liberation, Davis was a candidate for vice president on the ticket of the Communist Party USA. Later, she came out as a lesbian. Now she’s joined the cause of animal liberation.

Commenting on current events back in the U.S., she said that Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump was “trafficking with the white rage that is a product of the growing inequalities generated by global capitalism.” She said white people are upset because they perceive that “people of color” have taken their jobs and positions in society.

Now a Distinguished Professor Emerita of History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies at the University of California Santa Cruz, she has said nothing about the black genocide of abortion in the United States, or the death toll from global communism that now tops 100 million.

“Her communism was forged at her New York high school and strengthened at Brandeis University, where she was mentored by German philosopher Herbert Marcuse,” notedAdekeye Adebajo, a figure in South Africa, in a sympathetic report on her speech.

Marcuse, a Brandeis professor, was an expert in Critical Theory, also known as Cultural Marxism, which was popularized in academia by the so-called Frankfurt School. This subversive approach to “education” is common at most state-funded universities in the U.S. that turn out students who specialize in women’s and queer studies.

In South Africa, Davis’s attacks on capitalism generated wild applause. She also attacked the government of Israel, noting that Black Lives Matter in the U.S. has joined in “solidarity” with Palestinians through involvement in the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) economic warfare campaign against Israel.

Here, one of her favorite causes, at least until animal rights emerged on her agenda, was the abolition of prisons, on the grounds that criminals are victims of capitalism.

She talked about this in South Africa as well, saying that “trans-women of color” in the U.S. have added to the discussion of the abolition, not only of prisons, but policing.

Her work through an organization called Critical Resistance has been financially supported by the Open Society Foundations of billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros.

Ironically, Soros, a major financial backer of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, insiststhat he established the Open Society Foundations “to help countries make the transition from communism” into an “open society.”

But it appears that he uses people like Angela Davis (or they use him) to force the United States to transition to a dysfunctional and morally bankrupt Marxist state.

Coptic Pope muzzles US Copts in favor of Al-Sisi

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

copticEgyptian Copts in the diaspora of New York and New Jersey must decide to obey a call by Orthodox Pope Tawadros II of Egypt for a NYC rally at the UN General Assembly in support of President Al-Sisi’s speech on September 20. An official statement by the Coptic Church indicated that Bishop Beeman of Nakada and Qus and Bishop Yuanis of Assuit were sent to the US to arrange and promote Coptic crowd support prior to the president’s arrival.

The statement said that “We, all Egyptians loyal to our home land, must welcome the president and strengthen him in all the work he does for the good of Egypt.” Because “the Pope has great interest in the success of this visit,” the message urged that Copts do everything possible to ensure the success of this visit, adding, “It is good for Egypt and all Egyptians.” The statement concluded by saying that “Egyptian leaders of evangelical churches in America demand the same support of their followers and should rally for the president.”

The reaction of Copts to this idea is split, and the issue is complex. Statements coming from Bishop Beeman in New Jersey last week accused Copts of causing 60 percent of sectarian violence in Egypt by their insubordination within the church community, offering no explanation or references. Copts are angered and disappointed to receive this criticism and view it as pressure to perform.

Makrius Saweres, priest of the Saint George Church in Jersey City, is demanding that all Copts in the tristate area gather to welcome Al-Sisi on the sidewalks near the UN, warning that, “any wrong doing on the part of the Copts in America [during this event] such as insulting or minimizing the role of the president will reflect on Copts in Egypt.” By this he meant that Copts will pay a dire consequence, as usual, in their Egyptian home towns if they speak their minds.

Many might rather protest against Al-Sisi with this opportunity, but such a timely reminder of violence back home is now an effective muzzle. Furthermore, showing up at all to gather as religious authorities suggest is risky business given the possibility of Muslim Brotherhood gangs doing the same. This could lead to a direct clash between Copts supporting Al-Sisi and Islamists against him. We can’t ignore that Egypt’s Islamists (MB and Salafi) consider Copts behind the fall of Morsi’s regime. Should conflict here take place it could in turn lead to copycat clashes in Egypt. Various potential scenarios in New York could bring sectarian ramifications to Copts in Egypt. Once again, Coptic religious leaders conspiring with the regime in Egypt score political points on the backs of their people.

The Coptic community inside or outside of Egypt never delegated their spiritual leaders as political spokespersons. But this is not new to Copts who were once discouraged by US Coptic Church leaders on orders from Pope Shenuda from protesting against the former Egyptian President Mubarak during his visits to the US. The “alliance” between Shenuda and Mubarak can now be similarly seen here between Tawadros II and Al-Sisi despite Tawadros’ promise upon his installation to be hands-off of political issues, which admittedly are outside of his role.

Even if this plan to support Al-Sisi through an organized rally were appropriate and now needed, it should be initiated and led through the diplomatic channels of the embassies. In which case, both Christian and Muslim supporters of Al Sisi would be included in this call to action. As it stands now, it separates Egyptians by religion even though the Pope’s message declared this to be good for Egypt and “all Egyptians.”

Mobilizing Copts in support of Al-Sisi’s UN General Assembly speech focusing on international issues and not the internal affairs of Egypt has no relevancy. There is absolutely no gain by it except for the power gained by Pope Tawadros II in his political maneuvering, which unfortunately does not calculate for the safety and well-being of his people.

American Media Shield Obama and Hillary from Libyan Debacle

By: Roger Aronoff | Accuracy in Media

media

With a new report from the British Parliament condemning their own country’s decision to help intervene in Libya, the mainstream media have started to rewrite history. The media’s revisionism seeks to repair the damaged foreign policy legacy of President Obama by making the decision to intervene in Libya the fault of foreign countries, particularly France and England.

A CNN article written with this purpose in mind bears the headline, “Britain’s Libya intervention led to growth of ISIS, inquiry finds.” Angela Dewan writes, “Britain’s military intervention in Libya was based on ‘inaccurate intelligence’ and ‘erroneous assumptions,’ a report released Wednesday found, pointing the finger at former Prime Minister David Cameron for failing to develop a sound Libya strategy.” Yet, she adds, “the United States became involved and played a key role.”

The role of America in this debacle is not just an addendum to the interference by Britain and France. As The New York Times reported back in February, Hillary Clinton’s “conviction would be critical in persuading Mr. Obama to join allies in bombing Colonel [Muammar] Qaddafi’s forces.” The Times article cites former Defense Secretary Robert Gates as crediting Mrs. Clinton’s influence in tipping the scales for Obama to favor intervening there.

Despite the presence of other nations in the coalition, Mrs. Clinton took credit for the early developments in Libya. She announced on television, “We came, we saw, he died.” Her aide, Jake Sullivan, wrote in a State Department email that Mrs. Clinton had “leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s [L]ibya policy from start to finish.”

One of the decisions that Sullivan notes Mrs. Clinton made was to ensure that the Russians abstain, and other countries support, UN Resolution 1973—the resolution that authorized a no-fly zone over Libya.

But the media are working to ensure that the Libya debacle doesn’t affect Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign. Articles on the British parliament’s report by Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek fail to even mention Obama or Clinton.

“The Foreign Affairs Committee concludes that the British government ‘failed to identify that the threat to civilians was overstated and that the rebels included a significant Islamist element,’” writes Ben Norton for the liberal website Salon. “The summary of the report also notes that the war ‘was not informed by accurate intelligence,’” continues Norton. Ironically, it is Salon which, at least in part, outlines Obama’s and Clinton’s role in creating the chaos that envelops Libya today.

“Saif Qaddafi quietly opened up communications with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton intervened and asked the Pentagon to stop talking to the Libyan government,” writes Norton. “‘Secretary Clinton does not want to negotiate at all,’ a U.S. intelligence official told Saif,” he continues.

It is now clear—and should have been clear at the time—that Qaddafi had no intention of massacring civilians in Benghazi. As we have pointed out in our 2014 and 2016 Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) reports, Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic (Ret.) was working with Qaddafi’s military to broker a truce. Qaddafi had, Kubic notes, already begun pulling his troops back from Benghazi and Misrata. The United States decided not to pursue the truce talks. The Pentagon has since confirmed (see the top of page 680) that the bid for a truce took place.

President Obama told Fox News that his “worst mistake” was “Probably failing to plan for the day after” Qaddafi was toppled in Libya. “What went wrong?” According to this article in The Atlantic, “Obama has placed the responsibility on the entrenched tribalism of Libyan society, as well as the failure of America’s NATO allies to step up to the plate.”

But it was not necessary to get involved in Libya in the first place, given that Qaddafi had become an ally in the War on Terror and had given up his weapons of mass destruction. The intervention demonstrates how the Obama administration switched sides in the war on terror.

Yet the mainstream media seek to exonerate President Obama for his actions in Libya. By reporting on the details of a foreign report describing the mistakes made by the British government leadership, the media can conveniently make the story about British ineptitude.

But what about our own government’s mistakes?

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama cannot escape their part in this debacle, and bear a significant part of the blame for the failed intervention into Libya, even if the media refuse to apportion blame where it truly lies. As former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wrote in his book, Worthy Fights, “In Afghanistan I misstated our position on how fast we’d be bringing troops home, and I said what everyone in Washington knew but we couldn’t officially acknowledge: that our goal in Libya was regime change.”

Clearly, regime change was the goal of the United States government from very early on. And this debacle has led to the growth of ISIS. As we point out in our 2016 CCB report, the Obama administration facilitated the provision of arms to the al-Qaeda-linked rebels. Obama also authorized covert support to the Syrian rebels. “The Syrian Support Group, with Obama/Chicago connections, became the U.S. conduit for aid to various Syrian rebel militias. Turkey became the distribution hub,” states the CCB report. “…it now appears that at least some of the recipients instead were jihadist units that would eventually coalesce into the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS–later, simply Islamic State or IS).”

In other words, President Obama’s decision to switch sides in the war on terror has directly led to the arming of Islamic radicals in Libya and Syria. This is far from a mistake in failing to plan for the day after—it is a series of mistakes by an administration, and president, willfully ignoring the jihadist sympathies of those the government is arming.

The 2012 Benghazi terror attacks started with the misbegotten adventure by the Obama administration and its NATO allies, who were bent on regime change in Libya. Then came the failure to secure our Special Mission Compound and CIA Annex in Benghazi, the dereliction of duty by failing to come to the aid of our personnel when they were under terrorist attack on September 11 and 12, 2012, and the ensuing cover-up. Despite the media’s attempts to shield President Obama from the blame, he and his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had much to do with the recent and current chaos in Libya.

It’s the Marxism, Not the Birtherism

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

marxism

The Washington Post is not sloppy; it is dishonest. Forget Kenya or Hawaii as Barack Obama’s birthplace. The issue is that he was mentored by a communist named Frank Marshall Davis, who taught him that blacks had a “reason to hate” and that Christianity was the white man’s religion. Davis essentially raised Obama in Hawaii for seven years of his young life, when he was smoking dope in the “Choom Gang” and learning how to be a revolutionary. That’s why Obama left Hawaii to admittedly hang out with “Marxist professors.” Davis had taught him well.

The rest is history, except that the Post and other liberal media have sanitized history in order to conceal the Marxist nature of Obama’s proposed “fundamental transformation” of America.

In Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, Davis was “Frank,” a mysterious figure with only a first name who had served as his mentor. Later, the identity of “Frank” was shown to be Davis by Trevor Loudon and Accuracy in Media. Davis had a 600-page FBI file and had been on the FBI’s Security Index for 19 years. That was the smoking gun in Obama’s life story, not the place where he was born. His birthplace was always a secondary issue.

The “birther” issue is now being used by Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and their media allies to get black people riled up. It’s part of their get-out-the-vote drive. Not surprisingly, the Post and other media play right along with it. They realize Obama has done little for black people. So they have to demonize Trump.

The Post’s Jenna Johnson reported on Friday afternoon that Hillary Clinton “said Trump owes Obama an apology for promoting a false theory about his birthplace. She did not directly address the Trump assertion that her own 2008 campaign promoted the same theory, but her current campaign flatly rejected that claim.”

This appeared under the headline, “Trump admits Obama was born in U.S., but falsely blames Clinton for starting rumors.”

Do you remember Johnson? She was the co-author of a Post story asserting that Trump was sexist for talking about whether Hillary was physically fit to be president. That story appeared one day before Hillary collapsed while leaving the 9/11 memorial in New York City.

One day it’s sexism, another day it’s racism.

Actually, Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle did admit that a Clinton staffer had spread the claim that Obama was born outside of the United States. Hillary did not personally apologize to Barack Obama for that. Yet now the cry is for Trump, who questioned the place of his birth, to personally apologize to Obama.

All of this is just racial politics. Hillary knows that most blacks are not as enthusiastic about her as they were for Obama. So she has to get them up in arms. On cue, the Congressional Black Caucus has called on Trump, not Hillary, to apologize. The group’s political action committee has already endorsed Hillary for president.

Obama should apologize to the American people for failing to tell us the truth, and nothing but the truth, about Frank Marshall Davis. First, he covered up the identity of “Frank.” Then, when the truth came out, his campaign said Davis was just a civil rights activist.

The Post still won’t tell the truth about the Obama-Davis relationship, eight years after we disclosed it, because the reporter they assigned to do the job was himself a red-diaper baby who had personal and family reasons to conceal the truth.

After Patti Solis Doyle admitted that a Clinton staffer had spread the claim that Obama was born outside of the United States, James Asher, the former McClatchy Washington Bureau Chief, claimed that Clinton aide and ally Sidney Blumenthal had told him about it. He said Blumenthal raised the issue with him “face to face.”

This is very significant. Blumenthal had also raised the Frank Marshall Davis issue during the 2008 campaign. That was never retracted because it was true. The media ignored it for that very reason. They didn’t want to sink Obama’s campaign for the presidency. They still don’t want to bring it up.

The “birther” issue is getting more traction, even though it’s mostly beside the point, because Hillary thinks she can exploit it politically.

Hillary ignores “Frank” now, for obvious reasons, because she needs Obama’s help with the blacks to get elected in November. Blumenthal has to know how damaging the “Frank” connection is to Obama because he cited our work on the subject in 2008. Today, however, Hillary Clinton needs Obama. So Davis is a non-issue.

Coming to her aid is Michelle Obama, saying, “There were those who questioned and continue to question for the past eight years, up through this very day, whether my husband was even born in this country. Well, during his time in office, I think Barack has answered those questions with the example he set by going high when they go low.”

He hasn’t answered the questions about “Frank” because the press corps has never asked.

Tell us all about “Frank,” Mr. President. Tell us about the meaning of your poem to Davis titled, “Pop,” which included strange lines about stains and smells on shorts.

There are indeed very important questions remaining about “where” this president came from. The “where” is not the physical place, but the psychological and mental space in Barack Obama’s young mind that was once filled with communist notions by Frank Marshall Davis. Everything that he has done politically can be explained by the Davis influence.

Even Blumenthal knew there was a story there. It is the cover-up that changed the course of American history and put the United States on the course to becoming a socialist state.

Obama’s foundation advises us that he has changed America, but that the work is not yet done. “As President Obama has said, the change we seek will take longer than one presidency,” the foundation tells us.

You ain’t seen nothing yet! Frank Marshall Davis lives on through Barack Hussein Obama.

Background Checks and Fingerprints

By: T F Stern | T F Stern’s Rantings

checks1Recently the State of Texas altered the requirements for the renewal process licensed locksmiths must complete in order to continue applying their skills in what used to be a free market system.  The Department of Public Safety/Private Security Bureau, (DPS/PSB) working under their interpretation of HB 4030 passed during the 84th session, has determined that locksmiths must haveyet another set of official fingerprints submitted along with a complete background check in order to maintain a valid locksmith license.

While visiting my father, holding his aging hand as we watched some insignificant golf show on the television, I noticed his fingers were a bit discolored as his circulatory system no longer functioned at peak efficiency. It’s just a guess; but you could bet the farm the fingerprints on his hands would be the same ones he’s had since birth, the same ones he had when he signed up with the Navy in WWII and the same ones he’ll have when he meets St. Peter on the other side of the veil.

Some where in Washington, as the singer Arlo Guthrie would point out in his tune, Alice’s Restaurant, there’s a study in black and white of his fingerprints…

These identifying marks don’t change all that much over time so it’s beyond my thought process as to why the State of Texas considers it necessary, requiring locksmiths to furnish a fresh set of these prints simply to renew a license… a license which has that very same set of fingerprints already tied to it and filed away collecting dust.

About the only thing such a requirement does is add $25.00 to the cost of doing business for each and every locksmith while accomplishing absolutely nothing towards the State of Texas’ goal, “protection of the public through fair and impartial regulation of the Private Investigations and Private Security Industry”

Then there’s the requirement of another complete and thorough background check in order to maintain an already issued locksmith license; that bothers me too.  Actually, the veins in my neck are pulsing and may explode while thinking about this.

checks2The State of Texas conducts a complete and thorough background check of each individual prior to issuing a locksmith license.  If the State wants to find out whether or not a licensed locksmith has committed a noteworthy criminal act since the last time he/she went through the licensing process then all the State’s investigators would have to do would be to bring up a standard criminal check on their computer, not much different than the way police officers are able to find out the same information while on patrol; it takes only a minute, sometimes less.

If someone can explain why the State of Texas considers locksmiths…locksmiths who’ve already been fingerprinted, had their background checked six ways to Sunday and then issued a license…if someone can explain why the State of Texas considers locksmiths a threat or danger to the public…  Could you hand me my blood pressure medicine; those veins are swelling some more.

Yesterday I received an email from the DPS/PSB letting me know my latest renewal efforts were finally accepted and that my pocket sized wallet card would be sent in a timely manner.

Do you see why the updated renewal process bothers me?
