Re: Obama Addresses Race and Gates Incident
By Krissah Thompson
Washington Post
July 23, 2009

President Obama said Wednesday night that racial issues still haunt America, even as he noted "the incredible progress that has been made."

Obama was asked at the end of his news conference about the arrest last week of Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. outside his home. The incident has sparked a national discussion about race relations.

Obama noted that "Skip Gates is a friend, so I may be a little biased here," and he referred to the professor's account of arriving home to find a jammed door, forcing it open and then being confronted by a white police officer looking for proof that Gates lived in the house. According to Gates's account, he showed the officer his ID and became angry when the officer would not identify himself.

The president said he understands the professor's outrage. If he were trying to "jigger into" his old house in Chicago, Obama said, he would assume that the police would be called on him as well. But once Gates showed his ID, he added, it seemed to him the officer should have considered the issue resolved.

"Now, I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that," Obama said. "But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home."

Racial superiority and sacred cows is the issue
By Daniel B. Jeffs, founder DDC
July 23, 2009

Harvard race scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. trumped the police by playing his sacred cow and racial profiling cards. Admitting he was biased and that Gates was a friend, President Obama didn't hesitate to back him up saying the "police acted stupidly," knowing only Gates' side of the incident. Which, under the circumstances, was a stupid thing to say.

As a retired sheriff's sergeant with 41 years of law enforcement and criminal justice system experience, the more obvious problem here seems to be Gates' outrage at the police sergeant for not knowing who he was and how important he is. Racism and profiling are not the issue. Superiority is.

Taken together, Professor Gates' and President Obama's superiority complex have set back race relations at the expense of a dedicated police officer performing his difficult duties in the people's first line of defense of life and property. That particular sergeant is also a racial profiling instructor at the police academy.

Obama the Transformer
By Daniel B. Jeffs, founder DDC
July 25, 2009

If the arrest and booking of Henry Louis Gates Jr. was legal and justified, why is he not being charged? Is he a sacred cow? If so, that is why race relations have not progressed further. If anything, race relations have been regressing because racism and profiling are assumed without question, along with imbedded hostility and the entitlement of sacred cow superiority, which results in one-sided racism and growing resentment.

Professor Gates and President Obama fed and nationalized the resentment by acting stupidly. Racial justice simply cannot be served by the antithesis of equality and tolerance.

The glaring question in the Henry Louis Gates case is why was he not charged with the crime he committed? The sad answer seems to be that black activist Americans, particularly prominent black activist Americans, are sacred cows with racial immunity to the law. And that is one reason why race relations are not doing better.

The sad truth is, socialized racism and embedded racial enmity against white Americans is deeply ingrained from cradle to grave in most black Americans and justified by prominent black Americans such as Henry Louis Gates, and Charles Ogletree, and perpetuated by the self-styled leaders of the victim-based, profitable racist business of one-sided animosity, such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

The ACLU is an enemy within America:

The ACLU's founder, Roger Baldwin, stated: "We are for SOCIALISM, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself... We seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the SOLE CONTROL of those who produce wealth.

COMMUNISM is the goal." (Source: Trial and Error, by Geo. Grant)

Following are some of the stated goals of the ACLU, from its own published Policy Issues:

The Age of the Unthinkable: Why the New World Disorder Constantly Surprises
Us and What We Can Do About It
Author: Joshua Cooper Ramo
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
March 2009


Today the very ideas that made America great imperil its future. Our plans go awry and policies fail. History's grandest war against terrorism creates more terrorists. Global capitalism, intended to improve lives, increases the gap between rich and poor. Decisions made to stem a financial crisis guarantee its worsening. Environmental strategies to protect species lead to their extinction.

The traditional physics of power has been replaced by something radically different. In The Age of the Unthinkable, Joshua Cooper Ramo puts forth a revelatory new model for understanding our dangerously unpredictable world. Drawing upon history, economics, complexity theory, psychology, immunology, and the science of networks, he describes a new landscape of inherent unpredictability--and remarkable, wonderful possibility.

The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani .[Ramo has] managed, in this stimulating volume, to make the reader seriously contemplate the alarming nature of a rapidly changing world-a world in which uncertainty and indeterminacy are givens, and avalanches, negative cascades and tectonic shifts are ever-present dangers.


Joshua Cooper Ramo is Managing Director and a partner at Kissinger Associates, one of the world's leading strategic advisory firms. Prior to joining Kissinger Associates, he was Assistant Managing Editor of Time and worked in the advisory and banking business in China.

The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness
By Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr, MD
Monday, December 4, 2006

Dr. Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr.,a forensic psychiatrist, explains the madness of liberalism in his new book The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness. You can read an excerpt below, and read more at his website

Like all other human beings, the modern liberal reveals his true character, including his madness, in what he values and devalues, in what he articulates with passion. Of special interest, however, are the many values about which the modern liberal mind is not passionate: his agenda does not insist that the individual is the ultimate economic, social and political unit; it does not idealize individual liberty and the structure of law and order essential to it; it does not defend the basic rights of property and contract;

Book Description:

Half of all illegal immigrants came into this country legally-and we have no way of knowing they're still here!

Congressmen are putting their wives on their campaign payrolls-so that campaign contributions are really personal bribes!

The ACLU won't allow its own directors free speech.

Liberals want to strip us of the tools to stop terrorism.

The UN is a cover for massive corruption-and eighty countries, who pay 12 percent of the budget, are blocking reform.

Drug companies pay off doctors to write scripts-whether we need them or not.

Teachers unions block the firing of bad teachers-and battle against higher education standards!

Katrina victims are being stiffed by their insurance companies!

Special interests cost our consumers $45 billion-through trade quotas that save only a handful of jobs!

Never heard of these abuses? You won't in the mainstream media. That's why Dick Morris and Eileen McGann wrote Outrage. Their proposals:

Ban immigration from terrorist countries
Ban Congress putting spouses on their payroll
Ban lobbyists who are related to senators or congressmen
Ban nicotine additives to cigarettes
Ban trade quotas that drive up prices and save few jobs
Ban drug company bribes to doctors
Ban teachers unions' work rules that stop education reform
Ban insurance companies from backing out on Katrina coverage

In Outrage, you'll get the facts-and learn what we can do about them. You won't read about these outrages anyplace else; too many people are working hard to cover them up. Get them here instead-and learn how to fight the special interests of the left and right.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming: (and Environmentalism)
Author: Christopher C. Horner

February 2007

>From the Publisher
This latest installment in the P.I.G. series provides a provocative, entertaining, and well-documented expose of some of the most shamelessly politicized pseudo-science we are likely to see in our relatively cool lifetimes.

The need for environmental regulatory reform is hard to ignore. The United States has invested almost $1.5 trillion in environmental protection over the past 25 years and will be spending more on the environment than on national defense by the presidential election of 2000. Environmental regulations now cost the average American household $1,800 annually. Yet continuing public anxiety over the health of environmental resources indicates that few Americans are satisfied that they're getting what they pay for. Regardless, anything on which the federal government currently spends $200 billion annually (albeit indirectly through regulatory mandates) deserves scrutiny. Even minor improvements in regulatory efficiency would produce significant gains for the American consumer.

The Long Road Home: A Story of War and Family
Author: Martha Raddatz
Publisher: Penguin Group (USA)
March 2007

>From the Publisher
>From ABC White House correspondent Martha Raddatz, the story of a brutal forty-eight-hour firefight that conveys in harrowing detail the effects of war not just on the soldiers but also on the families waiting back at home.

In April 2004, soldiers from the 1st Cavalry Division were on a routine patrol in Sadr City, Iraq, when they came under surprise attack. Over the course of the next forty-eight hours, 8 Americans would be killed and more than 70 wounded. Back home, as news of the attack began filtering in, the families of these same men, neighbors in Fort Hood, Texas, feared the worst. In time, some of the women in their circle would receive "the call"-the notification that a husband or brother had been killed in action. So the families banded together in anticipation of the heartbreak that was certain to come.

The firefight in Sadr City marked the beginning of the Iraqi insurgency, and Martha Raddatz has written perhaps the most riveting account of hand-to-hand combat to emerge from the war in Iraq. This intimate portrait of the close-knit community of families Stateside-the unsung heroes of the military -distinguishes The Long Road Home from other stories of modern warfare, showing the horror, terror, bravery, and fortitude not just of the soldiers who were wounded and killed but also of the wives and children whose lives now are forever changed.

About the Author: Martha Raddatz is one of our most respected news journalists. As ABC's Senior National Security Correspondent, she reported extensively from Iraq. A two-time Emmy Award winner, she was recently named Chief White House Correspondent for ABC News, and has appeared on Nightline, Larry KingLive, The Charlie Rose Show, Washington Week, and many other news programs. The Long Road Home is her first book.
