Wright says ‘Jews’ keeping him from Obama

President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is blaming “them Jews” for keeping him from speaking to the president. Wright, the former pastor of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, said he hasn’t spoken to Obama since he became president.

“Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office,” Wright told the Daily Press of Newport News following a Tuesday night sermon at the 95th annual Hampton University Ministers’ Conference.

“They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. … I said from the beginning: He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.”

GM’s lengthy plant closures will ripple out

General Motors’ decision to shut down 13 assembly plants for up to 11 weeks this summer will disrupt far more than the lives of nearly 24,000 workers, rippling out to damage part suppliers, local businesses and state economies.

The Detroit automaker had little choice. GM, surviving on $13.4 billion in federal loans, must steady itself, slash costs and align production levels with the shrunken demand if it wants to live much longer. The announcement Thursday comes as GM races the government’s June 1 deadline to squeeze deeper concessions from bondholders and the United Auto Workers union.

Change? Don’t you believe it!

Click here to listen to the mp3: Change? Don’t you believe it!

Well, what I had expected to happen has come to pass. If I could predict the outcome of sporting events, or pick lottery numbers with this level of accuracy I’d be rich!

I’m speaking, of course, of the vast amount of material that is being written for these Nationalist Matters broadcasts without me even having to lift a finger. I thought that I’d have a couple of news items to share with you this month. Instead, I have five different topics to cover, and none of them were even on the radar at the time that the broadcast was assembled last month! Well, OK, maybe one of them was on my mind previously, but that’s it.

Take, for example, the article published in the “Financial Times” on March 12th with the headline of “WalMart Looks to Hispanic Market”. Sure, WalMart marketing themselves to the brown hoard is hardly newsworthy in itself. Hell, every time I used to go into a WalMart I was inundated with the stench of Mestizo madness!

However, that’s not what this article is talking about. No, this time WalMart has gone above and beyond the call of stupidity! I quote to you from the article:

Obama Wants To BAN Guns

‘Jewish money’ controls U.S.: African diplomat

Johannesburg – South Africa’s deputy foreign minister has been taken before the national human rights body for allegedly saying that “Jewish money” controls the United States, officials said Thursday.

Fatima Hajaig allegedly told a political rally two weeks ago in Johannesburg that Jews “control America, no matter which government comes into power, whether Republican or Democratic, whether Barack Obama or George Bush.”

“Their control of America, just like the control of most western countries, is in the hands of Jewish money,” she allegedly said.

Outraged by the remarks, the South African Jewish Board of Deputies — a civil rights group — said it filed a complaint Wednesday against Hajaig at the human rights commission.

Obama Vs. Constitution

Ralph Nader: Obama will be like Bush

US third parties fight to be heard

Two US presidential candidates have gone head-to-head over issues including the economy, the “war on terror” and flaws in the nation’s healthcare system.

But neither man represented the Democrats or the Republicans.

Although they run much lower-profile campaigns than the two presidential contenders, Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama, they are the third-party candidates in this year’s race for the White House.

Ralph Nader, a longstanding consumer activist, and Chuck Baldwin, a former Baptist priest, took to the modest flag-rimmed stage in Washington DC’s Mayflower Hotel on Thursday as cameras fed their images live.

But while the two candidates stand on opposite ends of the political spectrum – Nader a progressive independent and Baldwin representing the conservative Constitution party – no heated words were exchanged and no verbal barbs were directed at the other’s platform.

Libertarian Party selects Bob Barr as 2008 presidential nominee

The Libertarian Party has nominated former Congressman Bob Barr as its candidate for president for the 2008 election.

“I’m sure we will emerge here with the strongest ticket in the history of the Libertarian Party,” Barr stated in his victory speech shortly after being selected as the Party’s nominee. “I want everybody to remember that we only have 163 days to win this election. We cannot waste one single day.”

More than 650 Libertarian delegates met in Denver from May 22 till the 26 for the 2008 Libertarian National Convention. After six rounds of voting Sunday afternoon, Barr was selected as the Party’s presidential nominee.

Fears grow over US Republican ‘attack ads’

Election Year: Democracy Circus

As we all know, it is election time again in the United States, the great bastion of democracy. And I must admit that I am pretty cynical when it comes to the democratic process in this country. In fact, I am pretty cynical about democracy in general no matter where it exists, but more on that later.

The United States is in an election year and we are being bombarded by news from the campaign trail as the controllers of democracy have pre-selected for us which candidates to vote for. If it were not so amusing, it would be truly depressing. In fact, I sometimes think I have some sort of natural, mental defense mechanism that allows me to find amusement in the election process. My god what a crazy spectacle it is.

Not a day goes by where we are not reminded about what Hillary Clinton said about Barack Obama or what one of Barack’s advisors said about Hillary. Or what John McCain did or didn’t do in response. The he said she said juvenile banter goes on for a very long time during an election and the controlled media is happy to facilitate the entire process.

Every day we get video clips and sound bytes from one candidate or another discussing hypothetical situations that are apparently designed to clarify one candidate’s superior position, qualifications, or opinions about one seemingly important issue or another. It is the proverbial, time-honored, baby kissing political process that has always accompanied the domestic election process. And of course it all amounts to inconsequential, hollow campaign promises that are rarely remembered after the election. And to some extent, the people entitled to vote in this country, the electorate, understand this. The rest of the electorate doesn’t care about these campaign promises or they actually think some of them will be kept.

A Brief for Whitey by Patrick Buchanan

pjb.jpgHow would he pull it off? I wondered.

How would Barack explain to his press groupies why
he sat silent in a pew for 20 years as the Rev. Jeremiah
Wright delivered racist rants against white America for
our maligning of Fidel and Gadhafi, and inventing AIDS
to infect and kill black people?

How would he justify not walking out as Wright spewed his venom about “the U.S. of K.K.K. America,” and howled, “God damn America!”

My hunch was right. Barack would turn the tables.

Yes, Barack agreed, Wright’s statements were “controversial,” and “divisive,” and “racially charged,” reflecting a “distorted view of America.”

But we must understand the man in full and the black experience out of which the Rev. Wright came: 350 years of slavery and segregation.

Obama and the American Flag

Last October the Associated Press reported that Barack obama_flag.jpg
Obama had made a decision not to sport an American
flag pin on his lapel:

Asked about it Wednesday in an interview with
KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Illinois
senator said he stopped wearing the pin shortly
after the attacks and instead hoped to show his
patriotism by explaining his ideas to citizens.

“The truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin,”
Obama said. “Shortly after 9/11, particularly
because as we’re talking about the Iraq war,
that became a substitute for I think true
patriotism, which is speaking out on issues
that are of importance to our national security.

“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” he said in the interview. “Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism.”

Economic Chaos, Political Consequences

recession.jpg“Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy
night!”   -Margo Channing (Bette Davis) in
All About Eve.

Bumpy is no word for it. The news coming out of
Wall Street makes what the three presidential
candidates are saying beside the point. Cancel
the fun. The bad news also bids fair to change
the daily lives of 300 million Americans. No,
kidding, folks. What’s going on in the business
world is as serious as it can get.

Events unfolding this week on the lower end of Manhattan will cancel out all the projects John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been talking about. McCain will have to deal with the home truth that, though he may dig up enough soldier boys for the Middle Eastern wars, there is no money to pay for them. And thanks to the ever-shrinking dollar, other countries are not going to lend us more money to carry them on. We have run out of money: it’s time to cut and run.

The billions that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama would have had to spend to do the wonderful things they are dangling in front of the voters do not exist. Tradition has always allowed campaigning candidates to make promises they will not make good on, but this time they are bumping up against the limits of the plausible, let alone the possible. It might be helpful if they would ease off with the pretty pictures.

There will be no health insurance for everyone. No long-needed increases in teachers’ salaries, no big infrastructure projects, no decent-paying new jobs for those laid-off workers in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and nothing for single-parent (read mothers) households. There is no money. As things stand now we may have to spend hundreds of billions to prevent millions of people from being thrown out of their homes and billions more to prop our crooked, avaricious, heedless and duplicitous financial system so it does not come crashing down on all of us.

Obama bribes voters offering 210 billion stimulus plan


Democrat Barack Obama said Wednesday that as president he would spend $210 billion to create jobs in construction and environmental industries, as he tried to win over economically struggling voters.

Obama’s investment would be over 10 years as part of two programs. The larger is $150 billion to create 5 million so-called “green collar” jobs to develop more environmentally friendly energy sources.

Sixty billion would go to a National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank to rebuild highways, bridges, airports and other public projects. Obama estimated that could generate nearly 2 million jobs, many of them in the construction industry that’s been hit by the housing crisis.

Jewish Vote Eclipsed By Hispanics


A California Jewish newspaper dubbed it the “Jewish primary,” but the Super Tuesday contest in California might be more accurately called the Hispanic primary. And California wasn’t alone — in a number of states, a surging Hispanic population is poised to play an unprecedented role in the 2008 presidential election and beyond.

Jewish leaders have been slow to recognize a seismic shift in the political landscape that also includes a black electorate galvanized by the Barack Obama phenomenon and a growing Asian community, some activists say — although political strategists in both parties are already factoring it into their planning.
