This is an expanded version of "Wake Up the White Folk" Pt 1
The black folk are on the move to the White House without you! And they act as if they don't care how they're going to get there or how many "good" friends they're forced to leave behind no matter what their race or color.
As offensive as this subject on race might sound in relation to Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), there is no way around it. This is the 10-ton gorilla in the room and it is led by the man who once said he did not want to make race an issue during this election.
At a recent televised awards program aired on Black Entertainment Television Network (BET), the hip hop mogul and Obama supporter, Sean "Puffy" Combs (i.e., P. Diddy), stepped up to the microphone and, with an up raised fist, repeatedly shouted "Obama or Die!" That was a parody of his youth voter registration slogan, "Vote or Die!" But, the audience there was made up predominently of black celebrities, and most of them responded to P. Diddy's lead as if they were at a political rally instead of being out for a glamorous evening of celebration.
We can see that people of different races have gathered en masse to celebrate new hope and change through Obama's candidacy for President. And they are prepared to fuel his campaign with millions of dollars. However, there are just as many people who have remained skeptical about him and his yet-to-be articulated plans for this nation should he be elected President. Some are cynical about the possibility of him ever being elected. And they do not hesitate to say so.
Obama's young, trusting face he tries to present to the world instead comes across, somehow, in a way which makes him suspect as if he had a sinister purpose in mind for Americans. And, his plans may be so entrenched in the outcome of this election that only a sudden jolt will be able to shake loose his misguided followers and awaken them from their charismatically-induced stupor. On the other hand, not everybody is asleep at the switch, which is to say the real Obama should step up instead of him switching his positions, as he finds them to be politically expedient.
People deserve to know exactly where he stands on the issues of military war and justice, taxation, poverty, high costs of gas and oil, Rowe vs. Wade and same-sex relationships which continue to be headed for the U.S. Supreme Court, and the deterioration of our schools and food warehouses, health care, churches, and so much destruction of our infrastructures and work ethics. And, as long as this nation is at war against Islamafacists and radical terrorists, then everybody has to stay vigilant to guard against attempts by those who would try to destroy this nation regardless of their race, color, creed or religious and political affiliation.
And, although we may call this present dilemma a culture war instead of a religious war, it remains to be seen as the war of all wars in our time, because it revolves around the survivability of this nation. And, that is why this election goes to the heart, mind, body, soul and spirit of America, both at home and abroad.
Therefore, if anybody, including Obama, as he has come on the political scene and tried to do so many times, would act to shut the people's mouths against speaking out and being heard on any matter, then this war being waged at home against Americans is already lost. Without freedom of speech and the expectation of truth, there can be no trust. And, without trust, there can be no dependability. Furthermore, without dependability, there is no character.
We are inundated with poll-driven prognostication from every direction, and we must remember the seriousness of our constitutional right to vote. We can no longer afford to view this process as a hypothetical game or a test of wills of opponents and their surrogates. This is no less true particularly among newly recruited youth voters and some newcomers to America, if they decide to vote on the basis of race rather than to take time to determine who would be the best candidate to elect for President based on character , experience, and yes, faith, and patriotism for this nation and her people.
Even as we prepare for this election, liberal cable tv news pundits and various religious leaders, foreign nations and, Hamas, are telling us who our next President will be, based on projected polling. And, invariably, they point to Obama as their candidate despite empty ballot boxes waiting to be filled with the names and political affiliations of many more candidates who, also, want to stand for that honor.
Included among them is the Republican candidate and presumptive nominee and frontrunner, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Yet, his name, qualifications, and national platform are being disparaged by Obama surrogates. And his campaign is rarely covered. The media have already counted him out and Obama in. And, by doing that, they have driven this election right up to the finish line even though we are nowhere near to the official election deadline.
Furthermore, what kind of changes in the law can we expect from an Obama administration? Democratic legislators, such as Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a Muslin and long-time friend of Obama, are advocating for same-day election registration laws. However, if such laws were to be passed, they could throw the doors wide open to advance voter fraud, political corruption, laxer laws overall. And that would signal the end of this Republic, as we know it.
In addition, Ellison plans to propose a bill which would make it mandatory for everybody to vote on a specially designated day! The operative words here are, "mandatory for everybody." But, so many election staffs are short-handed that volunteers can hardly keep up identifying legitimate voters who registered in a timely manner.
Senator Barack Obama Comes on the National Scene
On July 27, 2004, a then, little-known state Sen. Obama stood before the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in the Boston, Massachusetts, Fleet Center, where he enthusiastically proclaimed in a keynote address for all the world to hear, the following, "There's not a liberal America and a conservative America -- there's the United States of America. There's not a black America and white America and latino America, and Asian America; there's the United States of America!" (source: Barack Obama, the politics of hope, Copyright (c) 2008 by William Michael Davis, OTTN Publishing, Stockton, NJ, pp. 10-11).
People who listened to Obama's proclamation swelled up with pride and showed their agreement by their enthusiastic applause. And, that was also when the die was cast and he was picked to become the 2008 Democratic candidate for President. Moreover, his presence at that 2004 DNC convention overshadowed that year's Presidential nominee, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-MA), who went on to lose his bid for president that same year to the current President George W. Bush.
But that was then and this is now.
That was before February 2007, when Obama officially announced his candidacy and gave his assurance that he would become the first black President of this nation. And, despite all of that, people of every race are still finding out that he is not the promised Messiah that his campaign and mesmerized followers try to make him out to be.
The onus remains with Obama to prove that he is trustworthy and competent enough to assume the leadership which is inherent in the office of President for all Americans. Obama has further defined himself by the company he keeps. And this brings us to some of the foremost noted figures in his past, present, and future who have remained on track with meeting their own objectives to accomplish through him their long-time goal of putting a black man into the White House who would foster their own black agendas, including fostering legislation of reparations for what they view as the sin of whites for enslaving blacks, the acceptance of this nation by legislation of the black Muslim programs fostered by Min. Louis Farrakhan and the New Black Panthers, and with legislation as the final blow to democracy being the institution of the Islamic rule of Sharia Law in America instead of the Muslims' adherence to America's Constitutional rule of law and respect for American biblical authority.
That scenario is possible, because neither Muslims nor Islamists regard themselves as being under the authority of the United States constitution, and that includes Rep. Ellison. And, even though billions of Muslims work and reside in America, there continues to be an ongoing movement to change the legislative and judicial system to accommodate a separate form of their own government and implementation of their own laws.
Political Ramifications of the Islamic Community and the Western World
Everywhere the Muslim people live in this nation and in the world, their advocates have applied pressure on the courts and legislators to make that community strictly conform to meeting their own religious and political needs even to the exclusion of American Jurisprudence. And, in too many instances, many in leadership have helped to contribute to their Islamic plans and they have capitulated, which has resulted in a serious breach with regards to the American foundational truths. Consequently, our citizenry is forced to have to suffer in silence, because they feel the Islamic religious squeeze with impunity and without their having any avenues of redress to alleviate their sense of injustice committed towards Americans.
Even more devastating is the realization that, within the Islamic community in this nation and abroad, their economic system mandates that whatever property they purchase is done legally in the name of Allah and without taxation. The implications for that is widespread, when we consider there are billions of Muslims or Islamists who adhere to that principle, which amounts to America being sold out even as Americans feel the pinch in their own wallets. And, this is all being done in the name of freedom and compassion and respect for foreigners? But at what cost?! And what part does the DNC, Sen. Barack Obama, and all of his friends play?
"O what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." -Anon.
Obama's past and present friendships have run contrary to the fruitful efforts achieved by so many black and white citizens such as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Fannie Lou Hamer, former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, and the white founders of the NAACP, and so many more people who joined that movement to bring about reconciliation and healing of the racial divide in this nation. Yet, Obama's record stands for all the world to see the dangers we would face by entertaining even the thought of electing him as the first black male President of this nation.
Both Obama and Michelle, his wife, have more than enough combined experience at rallying volunteers and fundraisers to ensure victory for them in this election, based on their long-time careers as professional community organizers and attorneys.
Moreover, both served as co-founders of the Public Allies Corporation in Chicago, Illinois. Barack Obama was a Board Member until his wife became the executive director in 1993. The Allies website states that it is an "American nonprofit dedicated to youth leadership development. Founded in 1992 by Vanessa Kirsch and Katrina Browne in Washington, D.C." The introduction goes on to state their "core values are collaboration, continuous learning, diversity/inclusion, focus on assets, and integrity." And it further states that they have "apprenticeships to join other nonprofits to work together in groups of '6-12 people.' "
Take note that, for their community organizing language, "Assets," means vast coalitions of people who remain at their immediate beck and call.
Therefore, this political couple who have publicly feigned ignorance in the ways of "Washington politics," have already established more than enough ready-made access to networks via vast numbers of unions and community organizations through Allies, which have established many locations in key political states throughout this nation. And, that immediate access to "assets" gives them a considerable advantage over McCain's candidacy and organization not only for this year but also for years to come, even as both of the Obamas continue to recruit young people to join up with their various organizations following their graduation "to volunteer to do community service."
Furthermore, whereas the Obamas might not need to call on any so-called 527 organizations for services or from lobbyist groups, those organizations could take it upon themselves to help out the Democratic campaign to rally many more volunteers and to help solicit political funds on their behalf. What's more, all such 527 organizations could still work on their behalf and, yet, somehow remain apart from their campaign reporting compiled by the Federal Election Commission (FEC), which exercises ongoing oversight of all federal election campaigns.
Obama's state and federal campaign offices are headquartered in Chicago, and he recently moved the entire DNC headquarters into his offices there, with the blessings of the current head of the DNC, Howard Dean.
Obama isn't even President, yet. But already he is running ahead of himself. He even went so far as to have a brand new Presidential seal created for him and he blatantly displayed it during a speech he delivered to the governor's meeting, which gave rise to thinking his intentions are to also go ahead and try to unilaterally change this nation's constitution. However, because of the hue and cry from "Right"-thinking citizens and others of good will, his campaign scrapped that idea and put his seal away. At least for now.
How could Obama's life have remained so intricately interwined with the same machinations of others who marched during the civil rights era but to advocate for black power and black nationalism, as well, with their call for the creation of a black Muslim state housed within the United States in which white people would have no say over anything pertaining to blacks?
Even now, there are many Muslim and Islamic organizations in America and abroad who are in place as if they are in a holding pattern waiting for January 2009, for the day that they believe Obama will be the one who is administered the oath of office as President. And those organizations are counting on Obama to change this government as he tried to change the Presidential Seal to say, instead of "Out of Many, One," to "Yes We Can."
Whereas ordinary citizens might have seen subtle changes in this nation's ideals, as being covert, the philosophical rule of America has fast become steeped in overt Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Islamists and other foreign ideologies. And, as such, this nation has come under the ongoing mandate for either weakened churches or no God whatsoever. Where is the proof of that, you might ask? Ask any preacher.
And much of this change to take this from a nation that adheres to Judeo-Christian principles to near atheistic proportions has taken place within our educational systems spurred on by instructors who understand that any change of a nation begins when an entire generation of children is indoctrinated with new ideas that run counter to that nation's past societal values, no matter how Godly that nation is. And, so, begins the national breakdown more often than not, by teaching the youth to turn away from the Godly morals of that nation until it is stripped clean of that nation's God.
"And they have exchanged the truth for a lie."
Minister Louis Farrakhan, Black Muslims, The New Black Panthers, and Islamists
Minister Louis Farrakham, as head of the Nation of Islam and a friend to Sen. Obama, endorsed his candidacy during the 2008 primary campaign. As a result, Obama was forced to both renounce his endorsement and to denounce him at the instigation of Sen. Hillary Clinton, just as Obama had previously been forced to renounce a message preached by Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., his former pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ.
Furthermore, after the New Black Panther organization (NBP) had endorsed Barack Obama's candidacy they, too, were told by the Obama campaign that they would not accept their endorsement. And, shortly thereafter, their ad was removed from the official Obama website. However, the head of the NBP has vowed to remain supportive of Obama's candidacy for President.
Min. Louis Farrakhan sounded a clear clarion call in 1993, which he continues to send out for the black man, where he wrote to influence the black Muslims and their advocates to "evolve from the limited vision of the founding fathers and repudiate that vision . . . or say that the darker people will never be respected as equals inside of this nation." Farrakhan was speaking in America to black Americans about America.
Farrakhan, had also written at that time, "America lies on her deathbed, is in dire need of guidance and a new direction. America is steadily on the decline. Her economy is faltering, her public schools are failing, maintaining the health of American people has proven too costly, crime is rampant, her sense of morality seems to have been lost and in general the whole future of the country has become a big question." (quoted: A Torchlight for America, Copyright (c) 1993 by Min. Louis Farrakhan.)
During the time of that book's publication, America was under the administration of President Bill Clinton. However, Farrakhan holds to that assessment today even as he has been known to have travelled from Cuba, to Libya, to Chavez and other nations outside of America to solicit money to prop up his own organization.
Let me talk to the brothers to say there is no way anybody can convince me that all those black separatists who still advocate for separation of the races and creation of their own black nation can for so long withhold their own national cooperation and yet leach off this nation and then turn around and blame America for their vile situation.
And, there is no way that I can be persuaded that anybody, regardless of their race, creed, and gender can come onto these shores and bring their many problems with them, and, yet, try to hold this nation solely responsible for whatever happens to them apart from whatever this government does to try to help alleviate their situation.
Without a doubt, I am sure Americans can acknowledge that there are so many in black and white leadership who have stepped up and claimed to have the solution to these racial problems in hand. Unfortunately, too many of them have also kept this nation bound to the race problem and they have made it into a cottage industry that is lucrative for everybody but the people who are standing in line waiting for aid in America. So, if either the black or the white leaders have solutions to dispense, as they get their grants and budgets assuredly from this federal government, then now is the time for them to step up and hand out solutions to finally make a difference.
For, if they do know what the solutions are, and have them in hand but choose to respond only with the problems, then they are the ones who are in the wrong and not America and they need to know that, too!
Americans, as a nation, are fed up with shuckers and jivers and schemers and connivers. We do not have to accept everything and anything that comes down the pike. And, when we stand to demand excellence in our leadership, then we shall have it. And, this generation and future generations would expect it beyond race, color, or gender. And our nation's creed would remain unconfused and be without question or apology, Judeo-Christian.
We must demand the best, because America deserves no less. And, until Americans of every hue - and especially white - wake up and all Americans say together with one loud voice -- No way. Not in America the land that we love will you tear it down!
Unless Americans take positive action, they can expect to keep going along with Obama and the rest of this nation's leadership with their not-so-hidden agendas. And, they can watch as they quickly change this nation by deception such that they will rue the day that they refused to hear and speak out against it. Moreover, all those who are allowed to escalate their plans to change America into an economical one world, global society, with Islamic underpinings, would not stop to ask for your opinion in the matter.
