The MilitantNegro SoapBox™: Advice To Senator Warren, Save Us From Hillary Or Sit Down & Shut The Fuck Up.

Yes, those are very harsh words for such a nice lady as Senator Elizabeth Warren. She needs a boot to her ass. If she doesn’t run for the Oval Office, we get Hillary as the nominee….and thats a disaster of biblical proportions. Standing & making speeches on the Senate floor are great, but what exactly does that skill accomplish? Is anyone who matters really paying attention? The mid term election results would say hell no.

 

Remarks by Senator Warren on Citigroup and its bailout provision

 

Senator Warren speaks good. She speaks the facts & truth as well. Problem is she stands alone as a Senator. Not much help right now and even less help in January 2015, when the dumbass GOPuke 114th CongrASS takes over both The House of Repukes and The SINate. 

 

Sen. Warren urges Republicans to oppose bailout provision in government funding bill

 

Like I said, she speaks well, the voice of a President Of The United States, not a lonely Senator speaking truth in the Senate chamber.

 

Will Elizabeth Warren run for President?

 

See, we need someone inside the Oval Office to fight for Us, like Senator Warren does from the Senate Floor….someone we can trust and who will do what they say needs to be done. Besides, anyone name me just TWO things Senator Warren has accomplished since being first elected to Senate prominence? Just TWO accomplishment, besides speak truth and facts, which intelligent folks already knew were truth & facts. Uh Huh……I’m waiting…..

Buried inside a spending bill making its way through Congress is a provision upping individual political party contribution limits for to $324,000. Currently, individuals are allowed to spend $32,400 annually, which is ten times less than the proposed change.

 

 

Democracy for sale? Bill raises campaign contribution limit ten-fold

 

 

 

I mean lets face it, is Senator Warren scared of being treated like this………

 

 

 

I am so tired of hearing dumbasses say things like Senator Warren can do more good in the Senate. They never explain how she can do more good in a SINate that is a majority of TeaTardedRepubliCANTS. How she can do more good standing on the 114th SINate floor talking to deaf conselfishservatives. Actually, she could do much more good if she resigned her Senate seat and became a lobbyist for the good causes. Gun Control. Immigration. Climate Control/Change. Wall Street Reform. Student Loan Reform. The list is endless.

I am never a “Clintoon” supporter, Hillary should have been persona non grata after her racist 2008 Presidential campaign. Instead a conciliatory Barack gave her Secretary Of State. I would have given her racist ass a swift kick. A diplomat I could never be.

 

I like and respect Senator Elizabeth Warren, but she needs to be the POTUSA in 2016 so she can actually effect change on the issues she speaks so passionately about on the Senate Floor.

Time to either take a crap or get her ass off the toilet. Get off the bench and get in the game. Save The United States Of America……from Hillary Clintoon.

The Silence Of Barack Hussein Obama.

The President Is Silent AND Weak On Ferguson, Missouri AND Black Genocide.

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nitorioussoapbox

I’ve said before that this Black President is too quite while Black men and women are being systematically murdered. Unarmed Black men & women are being killed for no other reason than being Black men & women. This Black Genocide did not start under Barack Hussein Obama’s administration, thats a fact. MY issue is that it is allowed to continue under Barack Hussein Obama’s reign and he is silent.

 

Giving a speech asking for calm and telling a people that are being exterminated, to be lawful and maintain peace, while they are being gassed, arrested for protesting peacefully and having weapons aimed at them…as you tell them to be calm, is asinine. I am sick of watching good Americans of all skin tones, all walks of life and from all parts of the globe in Ferguson, Missouri, everyday and night putting their lives on the line for peaceful protest, while Barack Hussein Obama sits in the White House doing jack shit.

I am disgusted by this man.

I am disgusted by this man.

It is simply beyond my mind to comprehend why Barack allows people to silence him when it comes to the murder of unarmed citizens of his nation. Why would Barack remain shut mouthed while knowing innocent unarmed Black American citizen are being killed by racist, control freak, testosterone fueled law enforcement officers? What or whom would wield that much power to make a Black President remain mute on this issue?

 

Now some have argued that Barack has not remained quiet because he has given pressers on the Ferguson riots and unrest. Bull shit. His press conferences have been lip service to Gov. Jay Nixon and the rest of the St. Louis County Just”US” system. Telling a people who have been victimized because of their skin color to remain calm and lawful….as they continue to bury their sons, daughters, cousins, grandbabies, nephews, nieces, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles, are just stupid words with no meaning.

FERGcarlson stop killing us

I was once a blind follower of our first Black President. I voted for Barack twice, and was proud of that fact. I became a non supporter the day he didn’t go to Ferguson to offer his comfort to the Michael Brown family and tell them he would see that things were done to insure their son’s death was not the “new normal”, that Mike Mike didn’t die in vain. That conversation with Michael Brown’s parents and supporters has never happened. No visit to Ferguson….like he made to Aurora, Colorado after James Holmes slaughtered 12 people in a theater, and injured 70 others.

 

Hurricane victims, mudslide victims, even Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting victims , all got words of comfort from this President. Not one single family member of the many unarmed Black Americans murdered by law enforcement, has heard a word from our President. Not one. Empty useless pre-written speeches asking for calm do not replace words of comfort & support when your child is laying on a slab in the morgue and is being labeled a thug, while James Holmes is labeled a man with mental issues for killing 12 American citizens in that Aurora theater.

Screenshot (1945)

 

Sending AG Eric Holder to Ferguson for a day of photo-ops is not what is needed nor is it what will satisfy Ferguson. Putting the FBI on the ground in Ferguson for 2 days is fixing nothing in racist Missouri. Going there to show solidarity with people who voted for you, now thats what should have been done, and that might even have prevented some of this unrest in Ferguson. To say Barack has disappointed me is an gross understatement. This entire administration is silent. Black politicians are silent. Black leaders are silent. Black celebrities are silent. BUT the St. Louis Rams are not silent.

How about it Barack, how about a little hands up support for Ferguson and Black Genocide?

Celebrating 24 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

 

Tomorrow marks the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) — a landmark law that transformed American society for people with disabilities. It provided for full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for those of us living with disabilities, and also provided Americans with disabilities with legal remedies to safeguard all of those rights.

 

Watch the President’s ADA anniversary message below:

 

 

 

Presidential Proclamation — Anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act

ANNIVERSARY OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT, 2014

- – – – – – -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Over two decades ago, Americans — some in wheelchairs, some using sign language, and all with an abiding belief in our Nation’s promise — came together to strengthen our commitment to equality for all.  At a time when people with disabilities were turned away at movie theaters, rejected for employment, and measured by what so many thought they could not do, leaders and activists refused to accept the world as it was.  In small towns and big cities, they spoke out.  They staged sit-ins, authored discrimination diaries, and scaled the Capitol steps.  Finally, they realized their call for simple justice in one of the most comprehensive civil rights bills in our country’s history.  On the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we honor those who fought against discrimination, and we recommit to tearing down barriers and guaranteeing all Americans the right to pursue their own measure of happiness.

 

The ADA promises equal access and equal opportunity — regardless of ability.  It secures each person’s right to an independent life, and it enables our country and our economy to benefit from the talents and contributions of all Americans.

 

Even as we commemorate this milestone, we recognize that too often, casual discrimination or fear of the unfamiliar still prevent disabled Americans from achieving their full potential.  That is why my Administration is pushing to fulfill the promise of and better enforce the ADA.  Fifteen years after the Olmstead decision — in which the Supreme Court ruled it discrimination to unjustifiably institutionalize someone with a disability — we have increased the number of homes integrated into communities that are available for persons with disabilities.  Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies are banned from discriminating on the basis of pre-existing conditions, medical history, or genetic information.  Expanding on my Executive Order to establish the Federal Government as a model employer of individuals with disabilities, my Administration is also providing Federal contractors with the tools and resources to recruit, retain, and promote people with disabilities.

 

The nearly one in five Americans living with a disability are our parents, children, neighbors, colleagues, and friends.  They are entitled to the same rights and freedoms as everyone else.  Today, we celebrate their accomplishments, stand against discrimination in all its forms, and honor all who sacrificed so future generations might know a more equal society.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim July 26, 2014, the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  I encourage Americans across our Nation to celebrate the 24th anniversary of this civil rights law and the many contributions of individuals with disabilities.

 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this  twenty-fifth day of July, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.

 

BARACK OBAMA

Making the Business Case for Rural America

 

Ed. note: This is cross-posted from the USDA Blog, see the original post here.

 

These days, it seems like it’s easier than ever to turn a good idea into reality. This is the era of Kickstarter, where entrepreneurs can connect with potential investors at the click of a button.

 

Of course, it takes more than money to grow an idea. It takes an atmosphere that fosters creativity and rewards innovation. And at a deeper, less obvious level, it requires strong, secure infrastructure—roads and bridges, but also internet access and community facilities like hospitals and schoolsthat improves connectivity and access to information, moves products to market, and makes communities competitive and attractive to new businesses and investments.

 

Part of the challenge we face in rural America is that in too many places, infrastructure is outdated and cannot support the same kinds of opportunities that are easily found in cities and larger towns.

Statement from the President on Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act

 

  • A Call Answered: Unlocking America’s Cell Phones

     

    Last year, over 114,000 of you made your voice heard and petitioned the Administration to restore a basic consumer freedom: to take your mobile service — and a phone or tablet you already own — to the carrier that best suits your needs.

     

    It’s common sense, good for competition and innovation, and essential to consumers.  That’s why the Administration declared last March that “It’s time to legalize cell phone unlocking,” and today the President commended Congress for doing just that:

     

    I applaud Members of Congress for passing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act. Last year, in response to a “We the People” petition from consumers across our country, my Administration called for allowing Americans to use their phones or mobile devices on any network they choose. We laid out steps the FCC, industry, and Congress should take to ensure copyright law does not undermine wireless competition, and worked with wireless carriers to reach a voluntary agreement that helps restore this basic consumer freedom. The bill Congress passed today is another step toward giving ordinary Americans more flexibility and choice, so that they can find a cell phone carrier that meets their needs and their budget. I commend Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte, and Ranking Members Grassley and Conyers for their leadership on this important consumer issue and look forward to signing this bill into law.

     

    Everyone has done their part to get here — from the FCC convening carriers, to the industry agreeing to voluntary steps to make their unlocking process transparent and reliable.  And as he said today, the President looks forward to signing this bill into law. It’s just one more way he is taking the lead in making life a little easier for the middle class, and ensuring our technology remains the envy of the world.

     

    You called, the President answered, and together we made cell phone unlocking happen.

Connecting African Leaders to U.S. Industry Beyond the Beltway

 

The upcoming U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which is the largest single engagement by any U.S. President with our African partners, will help the United States play a driving role in the continent’s future development.

Many Americans are aware that sub-Saharan Africa is a fast-growing region with tremendous potential, but they may not know about significant plans to develop infrastructure across the continent. We believe that these plans represent enormous business opportunities for U.S. companies of all sizes, and that is why we have invited key African decision-makers to meet with private-sector leaders in Chicago and Houston prior to the Summit.

These African Leaders’ Visits, which the U.S. Trade and Development Agency is partnering with the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Energy to host from July 30 to August 1, will highlight the United States’ experience fostering economic growth through key infrastructure investments. These Visits are the only commercially focused events to take African leaders to major U.S. cities outside of Washington, D.C. on the occasion of the Summit.

A Day in the Life: Deric from Baltimore

 

Meet Deric.

 

Deric Richardson had been out of work for over a year. He had a GED and a Microsoft Office certificate, but needed an opportunity to improve his skills. That opportunity came in the form of tuition-free training in laboratory skills provided by the nonprofit BioTechnical Institute of Maryland. Shortly after successfully completing the training, Deric was hired by Baltimore-based Paragon Bioservices in July 2010.

 

Today, Secretary of Labor Tom Perez is traveling to Baltimore to meet with him.

 

Deric’s story is just one great example of how job-driven training is working for Americans across the country. When we talk about “job-driven” training, we’re talking about making sure we’re providing people with the skills that employers are looking for right now to fill available jobs. Earlier this week, President Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which will elevate more job-driven programs like BTI.

 

This is the second in a series of “day in the life” trips Secretary Perez — in addition to other secretaries across the President’s cabinet — will be taking over the next few months. It’s a chance to talk directly with the people the Labor Department works for every day.

 

We want to make sure you see what he sees, too. Follow along today to see live updates and highlights from Secretary Perez’s day.

This image is what racist caucasians in The United States Of AmeriKKKa hate most about President of The United States Of America, Barack Hussein Obama and First Lady Of The United States Of America, Michelle LaVaughn Obama.

 

A portrait of a unified, strong, stable Black Family.

 

Racist caucasian have long viewed the Black family as splintered, broken, non-existent. And along comes this first family with a strong Black father, an even stronger Black mother, children who are precious in their intelligence and manners and knowledge of their roles as first children….and a Grandmother, Mother-In-Law and Mom who is the backbone of this historic Black family unit.

 

How dare these Negros be all that many AmeriKKKan families are not?

 

How dare this Black man be a Harvard graduate, President of The Harvard Law Review. Then have the audacity to be a community organizer to boot? How dare he imagine he could occupy the White Man’s House?

 

How dare this Negro woman, First Lady of the United States, raised on the South Side of Chicago, attended Princeton University and Harvard Law School before returning to Chicago to work at the law firm Sidley Austin, HOW DARE THEY!!

 

What an uppity bunch of colored folk.

 

1barackandmichelleparade.jpg

 

You see, many Black families in America exist, but our biased, unfair and unbalanced media refuses to put these Strong Stable Black Families on The Evening News.

 

Fear and loathing is further associated with the Black family by AmeriKKKan media in it’s many forms, but informed, intelligent Americans comprehend that America is comprised of many whole, complete, strong stable families of people of all colors, sexual orientations and religious beliefs.

 

Only the racist, moronic, idiots who want to believe in lies and misinformation of the Reich wing, choose to buy into caucasian families being the only “normal’ family units. Thats a myth.

Parade Magazine: The President & First Lady Michelle Obama On Work, Family, And Juggling It All.

 

6-22-14-obamas-inside-ftr

 

The President and Michelle Obama on Work, Family, and Juggling It All

 

President Barack Obama and wife Michelle have never been your typical working stiffs. With four Ivy League degrees between them, they’ve enjoyed high incomes and strong job security. But before and during college, they each worked minimum-wage jobs. And there was a time when they felt the same kind of financial aches and marriage strains that today’s dual-income families know all too well. As a young married couple in Chicago, they were mired in student debt, juggling multiple jobs and two kids, and bickering over who did what housework. “I wouldn’t fold,” remembers the president. “I didn’t separate, and Michelle’s point was, that’s not laundry.”

 

Silly suds stories aside, the Obamas feel they’ve been there. They know what families need, especially America’s working moms. According to the Pew Research Center, a record 40 percent of households with children under the age of 18 are led by mothers who, much like the president’s own mother, are either the sole or primary breadwinner for the family. Of working mothers with very young children, one in five has a low-wage job.

 

On June 23, to help raise the national discussion of these issues, the president will host the White House Summit on Working Families in Washington, D.C., a listen, learn, and recommendation session open to business leaders, lawmakers, economists, and ordinary citizens. Says the president, “There are structures that can help families around child care, health care, and schooling that make an enormous difference in people’s lives.”

 

In a May 20 interview with Parade editor in chief -Maggie Murphy and contributing writer Lynn Sherr in the Oval Office, the first couple discussed their work experiences, what they hope to get done before they leave the White House, and their roots in the ordinary. The president, who once scooped ice cream at Baskin-Robbins, began by recalling his days as a waiter in an assisted living facility—a story that even surprised his wife.

 

Read the entire interview here at TheObamaCrat™

 

You see, this President and First Lady started out dirt poor, as many common everyday Americans start out their journey. Now most every past 43 POTUSA started out in The Oval Office wealthy, it’s why they can fun for the highest office in the land, cash.

 

This POTUSA was not wealthy, rich or even well off. Barack Hussein Obama broke the mold and the rules.

 

Barack also loves, respects and adores his wife, his children and his Mother-In-Law.

 

Real Love Looks Like This

 

“On our first date, I treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed her and it tasted like chocolate.” – President Barack Hussein Obama from an interview in O, The Oprah Magazine. February , 2007.

 

 

 

Barack & Michelle

 

Barack & Michelle Showing The World What real Unity & Love Looks Like. This Is MY POTUSA!!

 

 

 

Another Black Man myth busted. The Black Family is alive and well In The United States Of America, unlike the lies, misinformation, racist rhetoric and media fear mongering currently floating around in The United States Of AmeriKKKa.

 

Now YOU know why racist caucasians hate Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle LaVaughn Obama, Natasha Obama, Malia Ann Obama and Marian Lois Robinson.

 

And The Un-supreme Court says Racism in AmeriKKKa is no more.

 

Yeah. Right. Uh-huh.

Weekly Wrap-Up: POTUS in Europe, OK Go, Power Plants, and More

 

 

There was a lot of action this week, both in Washington and overseas. President Obama traveled to Europe, we announced the first-ever White House Maker Faire, the EPA proposed a rule to curb climate change and make our children healthier, and more.

 

Check out what else you may have missed in this week’s wrap up:

 

 

President Obama Heads to Europe

 

President Obama traveled to Europe this week, visiting Poland, Belgium, and France. It was a busy four days overseas, and we have all of the highlights here.

 

Finishing off the week, the President traveled to Normandy to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day — and narrated a behind-the-scenes video in honor of the event.

 

 

 

216,000 Jobs

Another jobs report, another month of positive job growth. We’re not done yet, but we’re making progress.

 

 

For a more detailed look at the 51th consecutive month of businesses adding jobs, read on.

 

 

 

Celebrating a Nation of Makers

With a little help from the band OK Go, we announced this week the first-ever White House Maker Faire! On June 18, the President will host America’s students and entrepreneurs who are using cutting-edge tools that might very well create the industries and jobs of the future.

 

 

We can’t wait for this event. If you’re interested in getting involved, find out more here.

 

 

 

New Carbon Pollution Standards for Power Plants

Earlier this week, the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled new actions to cut dangerous carbon pollution from existing power plants. This move is not only good for the health of our climate, but it’s good for the health of our children. The President made that clear when he visited the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he met with children whose asthma is aggravated by air pollution.

 

powerplants_816_final

 

“One of the best things we can do for our economy, our health, and our environment is to lead the world in producing cleaner, safer energy – and we’re already generating more clean energy than ever before.”

 

 

“It’s a Good Day”

On Saturday, in the White House Rose Garden, President Obama spoke on the recovery of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — an American soldier who spent nearly five years in captivity during the war in Afghanistan. In the President’s remarks, he stressed that “while Bowe was gone, he was never forgotten.”

 

 

“As Commander-in-Chief, I am proud of the servicemembers who recovered Sergeant Bergdahl and brought him safely out of harm’s way. As usual, they performed with extraordinary courage and professionalism, and they have made their nation proud.”
