Obama Rings the Reparations Bell

Original Article

As Black Lives Matters and their allies rev up the call for reparations, it is time to revisit what Milton R. Konvitz wrote in 1976 for the celebration of the Bicentennial of American Independence[1]: In the late 1960s, when militant blacks staged demonstrations in various churches demanding a half-billion dollars in 'reparations' for three hundred years of subjugation and discrimination, a writer in an Anglo-Jewish journal formulated a demand for 'reparations from various nations on behalf of the Jewish people, including demands to the Vatican for the harm done by teaching that the Jewish people were guilty of deicide and for the promotion

You first, Barry, spend some of your moldy money on your countrymen. This clown hasn't lifted a finger to help black people but he was certainly generous with our money in the illegal healthcare scam known as Obamacare.

Every time I read what evil Ex-Dictator Obama is spewing the famous phrase uttered by Henry I of England regarding Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of England, comes to mind: "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?', except in Obama's case substitute the word "Communist" for "priest".

He has plenty of money. What has he done to promote minorities interests such as insisting that they learn to read and have critical thinking skills? NOTHING. He just wants to drain the productive people's coffers to make himself look like the friend of the minorities.

While they wait for an inept country, that is in great debt, to hand them free stuff all the other races continue to use the opportunity to get ahead. Like the idiot that has rich parents and is waiting to receive an inheritance who outsmarts himself when he dies at 70 and his parents are still living off the money.

So if we give them reparations does that mean they will stop the looting and rioting, burning and killing? Will they stop the random killing or will it still be OK for them to be angry abt slavery? By the way are you aware that there were 3500 freed black slaves that OWNED 12,000 slaves? So maybe blacks need to pay reparations too. Funny that blacks do not seem to care abt slavery that happens today. Nobody is talking abt ending THAT slavery. They just want MONEY for something they never experienced. There are millions of slaves today and nobody cares abt stopping it.

Why is this POS yammering on and on lately? It seems as if every other day there is an article in which The Light Bringer deigns to give the lowly masses the infinite wisdom of his superior worldview. Nothing happens coincidentally or accidentally with democrats. There is always a reason, and usually a sinister one.

Hate to break it to you Bathhouse, but as it turns out, the Obama "Family" Travel and Entertainment Budget expenditures from 2009-2017 done depleted the Reparations Account. Besides, if you added up the cost of our out-of-control crime, degraded culture and destroyed cities, guess who would end up paying? Sorry.

This from a man who refuses to educate his own. This is a man who was and still is against charter schools, voucher programs and school choice. All of which would help black students achieve success. The vast majority of black students in Chicago and Baltimore can't even pass the most basic math or english tests. In every democratic ru city black students rarely graduate high school. Fact is the IQ of black students were higher back in the 60's than they are today. You see, the democratic plantations in every democratic run city today are no different than the plantations of the old south back in the 1800's. No education then and no education now. Thank Obama, a racist, a bigot and a hypocrite. Get it yet....

From a political philosophy point of view, any government seeking to impose on a free people by the coercive power of government, a bastardized form of reparations based on skin color (whitey pays to benefit blacks exclusively), against the expressed will of the majority of legal citizens, deserves to be overthrown by a massive citizen revolt and the individuals responsible, appointed or elected, deserve to be made lamppost decorations in the public square. All else is folly.

Black folks have been free in this country for quite some time. Why don't they go back to their families in Africa? Why don't they ask their families why they were sold? Why were they caged by their chieftains and carried down to the boats that picked them up? Are the chieftains willing to share some of the beads that they got with them now??? Blacks were not held at gun point in this country that they had to remain here.

My home state of California is Bizzarroland, totally over the edge. It was bad enough, but now it has crossed the Rubicon and blown up the bridge and burned the boats. The Golden State is set to take away parental rights and create a police state where a court and judge must (not may) affirm a child’s chosen made-up gender “identity.” But that same California requires permission for a minor to get a tattoo. Make sense of it. I can’t. Soon in California, if the Democrat super-majority gets its way, confused children can be taken from a parent(s) and chemically castrated and mutilated at the minor’s request.

His remarks come about one month after a May 2023 grid assessment report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, which warned that the power grids serving most of New England and a large majority of Americans who live

What if you held an election and less than 200,000 registered voters showed up? Based on preliminary ballot counts by the New York City Board of Elections, that’s what happened in Tuesday’s primary election Because of state redistricting in 2022, NYC Council elections were held two years earlier than usual with no hotly contested citywide, state or federal races on the ballot to draw voters to the polls, political analysts said. Of all five boroughs, Bronx voters, in particular, couldn’t be bothered.

For every day and every scandal of his presidency, President Biden could count on unflinching, irrevocable support from the Washington Post and its devoted readers. That ended Tuesday. Traffic on one of America’s busiest roads in the Washington area screeched to a halt for hours during the evening rush hour. Biden was heading out to hit up rich Democrats for hefty campaign contributions at a fundraiser in ritzy Chevy Chase, Md., and Team Biden shut down the Beltway so Biden’s motorcade could travel unseen and unimpeded by any peasants. The shutdown caused more than five miles of backups and sowed disruptions for hours after it ended.

Former IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapley told CBS News on Tuesday that he was repeatedly prevented from taking the necessary – and routine – steps when it came to Hunter's case. He said conduct uncovered during the five-year investigation could have implicated President Joe Biden, as well, and resulted in additional charges – and claimed the road blocks were happening even during the Trump years.

Washington — Systemic negligence, misconduct, and overall under-resourcing among federal prison staff and facilities contributed to the conditions that enabled financier Jeffrey Epstein to die by suicide in his prison cell, the Justice Department's inspector general concluded in a report released Tuesday. The 66-year-old financier was found dead in his New York prison cell in 2019 a little over a month after federal authorities took him into custody for the alleged sex trafficking of minors. He was accused of exploiting and abusing dozens of underage girls and utilizing a network of employees to ensure continued access to victims, according to

And each brand offered juices with various configurations of pulp, vitamins, and concentrate.

Washington— More than $200 billion may have been stolen from two large COVID-19 relief initiatives, according to new estimates from a federal watchdog investigating federally funded programs that helped small businesses survive the worst public health crisis in more than a hundred years. The numbers issued Tuesday by the U.S. Small Business Administration inspector general are much greater than the office’s previous projections and underscore how vulnerable the Paycheck Protection and COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan programs were to fraudsters, particularly during the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic. The inspector general’s report said “at least 17 percent of all COVID-EIDL and PPP funds were disbursed to potentially fraudulent actors.”
