Update II: Prepare for Obama race-baiting. This news is breaking: Supreme Court strikes down part of Voting Rights Act. It’s a 5-4 decision in a case brought by Shelby County, Alabama. Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act declared unconstitutional!:
“Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, reauthorized by Congress in 2006, gives the federal government the ability to pre-emptively reject changes to election law in states and counties that have a history of discriminating against minority voters. The law covers nine states and portions of seven more, most of them in the South. The formula used to decide which states are subject to this special scrutiny (set out in Section 4 of the law) is based on decades-old voter turnout and registration data, the justices ruled, which is unfair to the states covered under it.
The Justice Department used Section 5 of the law to block voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina last year, and it also struck down early voting restrictions in five counties in Florida. [snip]
Another argument against Section 4’s constitutionality was that it’s unclear whether minority voters in Southern states are more likely to face discrimination at the polls than they are in other states.”
Update: We wrote Deny It All You Want But Immigration Reform Is Dead back in April. Many dispute our contention and point to the Senate distraction and the Big Media myth making machine to discourage everyone into thinking that “immigration reform” is a done deal.
Today Fawn Johnson at National Journal writes Time’s Up. Immigration Won’t Pass This Year
“Plenty of effort will be devoted to reform over the next month, but it will die in August, just like last time.
Nothing less than a miracle will get major immigration legislation through Congress this year. [snip]
Indeed, the House might not kill the bill outright, but the GOP players are passing the ball around until the clock runs out.
What’s that clock look like? After senators get the bill done – probably in time to make their weekend barbeques — they have a weeklong July 4 break. And then they get to wait for colleagues on the other side of the Capitol who will have four weeks – four weeks – to deliberate before Congress takes off for an even lengthier recess in August. Once Washington meets autumn, immigration falls off the priority track thanks to the reemergence of fiscal crisis. [snip]
Then comes August, the month in which legislation dies. The last time the Senate passed a major immigration bill in 2006, House Republicans used the August recess to kill it by staging a series of hearings around the country that did nothing but rile up conservatives against it.
Let’s not forget the health care bill, which only passed after President Obama forced it through the Senate with Democratic votes using a parliamentary tactic that isn’t available on immigration. [snip]
When lawmakers return to the Capitol in September, they will be facing another financial crisis as they debate raising the country’s debt ceiling. The four- to six-week countdown toward extreme limitations on government payments to Social Security or military operations will do two things: It will suck all the life out of any deliberative legislative effort, immigration included, and it will polarize the political parties.”
Immigration “reform” is dead even as there will be an attempt in the Senate to flim-flam the country into believing it is going to happen. It’s not.
Hey! Greta Van Susteren has a real immigration reform plan that addresses the problem. But we doubt that will pass or even be proposed by the chuckleheads in congress.
This coming week is going to be an explosive seven days in American history. On Monday the Jorge Zimmerman trial begins with one Latina and five white women on the jury. The Supreme Court will issue, starting on Monday, opinions which will likely lead to the end of race based “affirmative action” in undergraduate college admissions. The Supreme Court will also decide the fate of a key section of the Voting Rights Act. On Monday the Senate will start the process to try to pass another mess of a bill – this one the race-baiting amusement called “Immigration Reform“. Throw in the Supreme Court weighing in on gay marriage and the pot is boiling over.
The result of all these events hitting Barack Obama will be race-baiting of an intensity not seen since the embers of race riots from an earlier age scarred the nation – and the Barack Obama campaign of 2008 against Hillary Clinton. “Why?” is simple to answer.
Survey the sociopolitical landscape and there is disaster everywhere. The answer from Barack Obama and his White House Down team will not be to respond to the disasters but to race-bait. Race-baiting is all Barack Obama and his minions have left in their arsenal of hate, fear, and smear.
The White House Chicago gang is aware that hypocrites on the left continue to voice support for their idol, But they are also aware that as independents turn hostile, Republicans remain hostile, even Barack Obama supporters are upset with Obama. So the way to get antsy Obama supporters back on board with their glorious leader is to race-bait. Shouting “RACISM!” and “RACISTS!” will force Obama supporters back on the farm like nothing else will. Race-baiting is the only answer left for Barack Obama as all goes from bad to Barack and a hard place.
Look around the world as Barack Obama confronts the reality of the mess he has made. The economic “glimmers of hope”, the green shoots of hope and optimism are scorched by last week’s stock market freeze. The future of the nation is so dire it is no longer a prosperous California of decades past, nor even the flailing California of the decade past. The nation’s economic future is bankrupt Detroit – already threatening the municipal credit markets.
American leadership? That is gone on a worldwide basis and nations like China know weak Obama will weaken America further.
Such is the contempt China has for Barack Obama that this morning this bit of news breaking: Snowden leaves Hong Kong for Russia and parts unknown. In the press release announcing the departure of Snowden the Chinese mentioned that the Hong Kong officials want the American government to explain the hacking of Chinese computers.
The Chinese government press release mocked the American government request to detain Snowden as not fully complying with Hong Kong law. Of course if China or Hong Kong wanted to detain Snowden they could have detained him for any series of trumped up charges such as littering or spitting on the sidewalk. The intent of such language is to slap Barack Obama in the face.
Snowden is a problem for Obama because many of his supporters in their heart of hearts like whistle-blowers and leakers. Hells Bells, even Obama thug Robert Gibbs states the White House has to come clean on the NSA scandal. The DailyKooks and assorted crackpots who support Barack Obama don’t want to voice support for Snowden but they die a little bit more every time they see Obama hunting down Snowden. How to get these DailyKook Snowden admirers back on the farm? Race-bait for Obama.
China slapped Barack Obama in the face. Russia kicked him in the dried out raisins which pose as Obama’s testicles. Picture Putin fresh from giving Obama the skunk eye at the G-8 as he spat his contempt for Obama on the front pages of the world by allowing Snowden to land in Moscow in a quest for freedom. Remember when dissidents fled to America not from America? WikiLeaks says they are helping Snowdon find “political asylum in a democratic country“. That “democratic country” is
the United States Ecuador.
If you see Obama sweating some more this week it is not because he is still in Berlin embarrassing himself and this suffering nation. Nation after nation is slapping Obama on the face like a circus clown pelted with pies.
Russia not only defies Obama on Syria but declares they will not allow a “no-fly” zone in Syria. Barack Obama’s ‘Arab Spring’ is rapidly turning into nuclear winter having already manifested itself in Syria as a chemical fall.
Turkey which was supposed to supply weapons to the Syrian rebels has rebels of its own to suppress. Those weapons, many suspect, were to come from Libya but that plan failed at Benghazi. Yes Benghazi, the unforgotten scandal.
Benghazi is only one of the scandals that will slap Obama this week, especially if the Erdogen government in Turkey persists in its brutality. Who can forget Obama forced Israel to apologize to Erdogen for doing what Israel should have done in its own defense?
The other scandals are alive and well still. The IRS scandal has even awoken Big Pink hating Peggy Noonan from her Obama inspired slumbers. Ol’ Peg is accurately writing that Obama thugs purposefully blocked the Tea Party in order to protect Obama in election year 2012 after the beating Obama got from the Tea Party in 2010. Obama will get no let-up from scandals this week.
The Department of Justice scandal (not the other ones) with Obama targeting reporters shook Big Media. Big Media loves Obama but Big Media loves itself even more. The Obama response to this is the answer Obama will have this week: race bait. Declare the racists are winning. Distribute Joan Walsh’s race-baiting article attacking Sarah Palin. Race-bait, race-bait, race-bait.
As the ObamaCare fiasco reveals itself to be a bigger disaster than previously known, race-bait, race-bait, race-bait. Race-baiting might even get those idiot young people, who are healthy but not particularly bright, to sign up for ObamaCare and put aside their financial interests in order to buck up Obama at the cost of thousands of dollars a year.
Yes, that’s the ticket, race-bait.
To that end, enter pothead Trayvon Martin.
Remember that party you went to? You were either 18 or 38. You were wearing a tie-dyed T-shirt with love beads or was it a Chanel suit with gold piping? Your conversation was effervescent and sparkling – just like the Champagne in your flute glass, or was it a paper cup with some horrid Portuguese wine? But then, horror! You noticed as you spoke people began to fall asleep.
At first you thought “Was it me? Was my cleverness tiresome and it caused this narcolepsy?” Then you realize there are food remnants clearly visible from those nodded out on the sofa. You clutch your pearls, or is it your love beads, and realize “I’m at a pot party.”
This traditional notion of pot smokers (that’s marijuana for you readers more adept at the culinary arts rather than botanical narcotics) is about to be tested.
The stereotypical notion of pot smokers is they smoke, get the “munchies”, then fall asleep. Trayvon Martin is about to test that assumption.
Assuming that Trayvon Martin was high on pot not some other chemically induced high, the defense of Jorge Zimmerman is going to have to get around the calming reputation of pot. Is it really possible that a pot smoker could be so into Mixed Martial Arts and brutally beating up someone – not nodding out on a sofa after consuming copious amounts of junk baked goods? We’re about to find out.
This week the Jorge Zimmerman trial begins. We expect the defense to mention the toxicology reports from the Trayvon Martin autopsy with regularity. We expect the toxicology report mentions will be twined with references to Zimmerman telling police that the man he saw that rainy night looked like he was on drugs.
All of these mentions will be made in order to goad the prosecution into saying something like “Trayvon was a good boy” and thereby, forcing the court to allow opening up an examination of Travyon Martin’s past. That past is one of school suspensions, pot smoking and selling, fight club experience, and the nasty emails and twitter account comments. And then there are the cell phone pictures of Trayvon with a gun, marijuana plants, finger gestures, gold teeth, in other words a portrait wholly different from the picture of that cute little boy Big Media and Barack Obama race-baited with, with such dexterity.
For Barack Obama, the former head of the Choom gang, the Trayvon Martin, Jorge Zimmerman trial is a golden opportunity to light up. Barack, like his “son”, loved tokes on the weed. Obama smoked all day and all night. Fortunately for Obama he was never arrested as so many pot smokers do and are carted off to jail. But let’s not digress into another instance of Barack Obama hypocrisy.
The Jorge Zimmerman trial is a golden opportunity for Barack Obama to race-bait. It’s not just the death of his “son” at the hands of the bloodied Jorge Zimmerman. Sure, Barack Obama will have the Martin family and the Al Sharpton’s of MSNBC screaming “RACISM!”. Barack Obama’s DailyKooks/Netroots Nation segregated white boys and girls will join the chorus too. “RACISM! RACISTS!” they will shout. The shouts might even drown out the plane as Snowden jets to a “democratic country”.
In this epochal moment for race-baiting Barack Obama will have an ally. The Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has not been very good to Obama this year. In case after case the Supreme Court has decided against the government this year. Barack Obama’s very name has been mentioned with contempt at the court this term.
We differ with most opponents of ObamaCare in our analysis of the Supreme Court ObamaCare decision. We’ll have much more to say when we open fire on ObamaCare this summer and into fall as the campaign of deception by ObamaCare proponents is in full swing. What we are in the majority on is that the Supreme Court has legally beaten up on Obama this term.
But the Supreme Court, due to timing might in the short run help Barack Obama this week in the campaign to race-bait, race-bait, race-bait.
This week the Supreme Court will eye Barack Obama at the White House, Eric Holder at the Justice Department and at long last in all likelihood begin to get rid of race based affirmative action, first in college admissions and later in all other aspects of American life. The Voting Rights Act will likely also be gutted.
Barack Obama and his Chicago advisers will see this conjunction of the Jorge Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin circus in Seminole County, Florida, the Shelby County, Alabama VRA case, along with the Fisher-University of Texas case as grand opportunities to race-bait. Divide and conquer. Keep the Obama supporters on the farm with a divisive campaign of fear and smear.
An added bonus is that the Supreme Court has already agreed to hear another affirmative action case in the fall. This will be another opportunity to divide, smear, and race-bait – at the very moment that ObamaCare begins it’s reign of terror.
Race-baiting season, like the new born summer season, has just begun. It’s going to be a long hot summer of hate from the Barack Obama merchants of fear, smear, and racial division.
