Democrat Claims That Former Obama Chief Of Staff Has ‘Fundamentally Transformed’ Police Into Racist Death Squad In Obama’s Home City

August 1, 2013

We’ve got the smoking gun now.  Democrats are pure, unadulterated evil.  They are so evil, in fact, that they have created a death squad within the Chicago Police Department that is systematically and intentionally murdering black children.  And our source for that is none other than a Democrat whistle blower:

State Rep. Monique Davis: “Maybe police are killing some of these [Chicago] kids”

CHICAGO – State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) told a Detroit radio station that police in Chicago might be killing black kids. Her explanation for the 996 people who have been short (228 homocides) in Chicago since January.

“I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children,” Davis said.

“There’s some suspicion – and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing – they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”

When WBBM asked Davis if she thinks it’s possible that police are killing children, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know that they are, and I don’t know that they aren’t, since no one’s been arrested. We don’t know who’s doing it.”

For the record, Chicago is and has been a bastion of the Democrat Party for decades.  For the record, the mayor who has apparently called for this racist death squad is none other than Barack Obama’s former chief of staff, Rham Emanuel.

At least the truth is out now.  At last black people can know for a fact that liberalism is the most racist ideology since anything that spewed out of the mouth of Hilter.  And at last we can finally begin holding the Democrat Party that formed the Klu Klux Klan responsible for its holocaust of black people.

This is what Democrats are reduced to.  It’s either the above, or Democrats and the blacks who live and work on the DNC plantation must explain why 90% of black people are murdered by other black people in the age where the “civil rights community” has made their entire case about that evil “white Hispanic” a.k.a. George Zimmerman.  And by the way, if you add the abortion statistics (black “mothers” murder nearly 2/3rds of their babies) to the murder rate, blacks murder about 99.999999 percent of their children.   But let’s blame whitey for that tiny fraction of one percent (even if we have to invent the previously nearly entirely unknown category of “white Hispanic” in order to do it.  Let’s blame Bush.

Liberalism is never having to take responsibility for the horror that liberal policies have created.

We add Chicago (the worst murder rate on the damn planet) to Detroit (the worst economic hellhole on the damn planet) to the Democrat Party tally.  These are both cities that have been entirely owned by Democrats and Democrat policies for at least sixty years – and to quote a certain racist “reverend” whose church Obama attended for more than twenty years, “The chickens have come home to roost.”

No group of people has EVER been more OWNED by a political party than black people have allowed themselves to be owned by the Democrat Party.  Whether you consider abortion, or out-of-control sexuality that demeans women, or the destruction of families, or permissive attitudes toward crime, or drugs, or failed liberal education policies, or imposing police procedures that prevent law enforcement from doing its job, or welfare, or the complete abandonment of ANY personal responsibility, or permanent dependency on any of the hundreds of government programs that entices and encourages a life of failure and a life of abject government dependency, we can readily see that no group of people have EVER drank the Democrat Party Kool-Aid more deeply than black people have drank it.  And what do they want?  More of the hair of the dog that rabidly bit them and continues to bite them and WILL CONTINUE to bite them forever, that’s what.  And that’s why the black community is in ruins today.

Liberalism is like Marxism in virtually every significant way.  But most of all, it is an ideology that promises the world, but only succeeds in delivering hell by way of the crushing of the human spirit.

Obama And The Unions Haven’t Been Very Good To Detroit (Largest Bankruptcy In American History), Have They?

July 19, 2013

How do you kill a major American city – particularly one where three of the biggest manufacturers in the WORLD are located?

Ask a Democrat.  Because they’re the ones who just succeeded in doing it.

Detroit just went belly up.  And I can smell the rotting carcass of a city that had everything until idiotic liberalism killed the golden goose.

Has Obama been good for Detroit?  Not so much.

Detroit is a city that literally did everything – absolutely EVERYTHING – Obama and the radical leftists demoniacs said we need to do everywhere.  And it was the kind of cancer in Detroit that it will be spreading throughout the rest of America.

That said, we can’t lay all this at Obama’s feet.  Because in spite of the fact that it had the big three auto manufacturers located there, the unions and the union mentality have been poisoning the city for going on sixty years.

Detroit files for bankruptcy protection
Nancy Kaffer, Stephen Henderson and Matt Helms, Detroit Free Press 5:22 p.m. EDT July 18, 2013

DETROIT — The city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection in federal court Thursday, laying the groundwork for a historic effort to bail out a city that is sinking under billions of dollars in debt and decades of mismanagement, population flight and loss of tax revenue.

The bankruptcy filing makes Detroit the largest city in U.S. history to do so.

The filing begins a 30- to 90-day period that will determine whether the city is eligible for Chapter 9 protection and define how many claimants might compete for the limited settlement resources that Detroit has to offer. The bankruptcy petition would seek protection from creditors and unions who are renegotiating $18.5 billion in debt and other liabilities.

“The fiscal realities confronting Detroit have been ignored for too long. I’m making this tough decision so the people of Detroit will have the basic services they deserve and so we can start to put Detroit on a solid financial footing that will allow it to grow and prosper in the future,” said Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder. “This is a difficult step, but the only viable option to address a problem that has been six decades in the making.”

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, who in June released a plan to restructure the city’s debt and obligations that would leave many creditors with much less than they are owed, has warned consistently that if negotiations hit an impasse, he would move quickly to seek bankruptcy protection.

Snyder signed off on the filing in a letter attached to court documents filed Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Eastern District of Michigan. A spokeswoman for Snyder did not immediately return telephone calls Thursday.

“It is clear that the financial emergency in Detroit cannot be successfully addressed outside of such a filing, and it is the only reasonable alternative that is available,” Snyder said in the letter granting his state-required approval. “In other words, the City’s financial emergency cannot be satisfactorily rectified in a reasonable period of time absent this filing.”

Snyder continued: “I have reached the conclusion that this step is necessary after a thorough review of all the available alternatives, and I authorize this necessary step as a last resort to return this great City to financial and civic health for its residents and taxpayers. This decision comes in the wake of 60 years of decline for the city, a period in which reality was often ignored.”

Orr’s spokesman Bill Nowling said, “Pension boards, insurers, it’s clear that if you’re suing us, your response is ‘no.’ We still have other creditors we continue to have meetings with, other stakeholders who are trying to find a solution here, because they recognize that, at the end of the day, we have to have a city that can provide basic services to its 700,000 residents.”

This week, the city’s two pension funds (which have claims to $9.2 billion in unfunded pension and retiree health care liabilities) filed suit in state court to prevent Orr from slashing retiree benefits as part of a bankruptcy restructuring.

Ambac Assurance Guaranty, which insures some of the city’s general obligation bonds, has also objected to Orr’s plan to treat those bonds as “unsecured,” meaning they’re not tied directly to a revenue stream and would receive pennies on the dollar of their value. Ambac, and other creditors, have threatened to file suit.

Sources agree that Orr’s deal with creditors, widely reported to be Bank of America Corp. and UBS AG, to pay a $344-million swap with a $255-million debtor-in-possession loan, is instrumental in the timing of the bankruptcy filing.

The deal gives the city access to $11 million a month in casino tax revenues that Orr has said is key to maintaining city services while negotiations, in or out of bankruptcy court, take their course with other creditors and unions.

Plunkett Cooney bankruptcy lawyer Doug Bernstein, who is not involved in the bankruptcy and is not representing any parties related to it, said Thursday that the filing was critical for the city, given a growing number of legal challenges.

On Monday, an Ingham County Circuit Court judge was scheduled to hold a hearing on the city workers’ and retirees’ challenge to stop the city from filing for bankruptcy protection. The employee groups, and separately the city’s two pension funds in another lawsuit, argue that the governor — who must and has authorized the bankruptcy filing — cannot do so if the filings include plans to reduce pension benefits, because the state’s constitution explicitly protects public pensions. If the state has such plans, it wasn’t immediately presented in the court filing.

Bernstein said preventing the court hearing Monday is probably a key part of the strategy behind a Chapter 9 petition by the city, because a ruling in favor of the employees could put a halt, at least temporarily, to any moves by Orr and Snyder to proceed with a bankruptcy petition. A bankruptcy filing immediately stays all such court proceedings.

STORY: Detroit manager pitches debt recovery plan to creditors

“The stay kicks in as soon as the filing, whether it’s Friday or Monday,” Bernstein said before Thursday’s filing. “The key is taking advantage of the automatic stay. Because of the lawsuit filed by the pension funds and the hearings coming up Monday, it became a factor, so to the extent that (Orr) wanted to continue negotiations with creditors, now the city is forced to” file a Chapter 9 petition.

The 30- to 90-day eligibility fight could be prolonged beyond that time frame if creditors mount a significant challenge to Detroit’s eligibility for bankruptcy. In other communities that have filed for Chapter 9 protection, such fights have extended the process a year or more, including Jefferson County, Ala., and Stockton, Calif., two of the largest municipal bankruptcy filings so far in the United States.

Detroit’s bankruptcy is by far the largest of its kind in U.S. history, in terms of the city’s population of about 700,000 and the amount of its debts and liabilities, which Orr has said could be as high as $20 billion. Because of the stakes involved, and the impact on residents statewide, as well as 30,000 current and retired city workers and Detroit’s ability to stay in business, the case could be precedent setting in the federal judiciary. It also could set an important trajectory for the way troubled cities nationwide settle their financial difficulties.

Bernstein noted that Orr has said repeatedly his office would “negotiate with creditors until and unless we find that the negotiations won’t bear fruit, with the understanding that the city has a limited amount of time” for those talks.

City Council President Pro Tem Andre Spivey said he understood that negotiations Orr was having with creditors weren’t as fruitful has he’d hoped they be, and that he hopes the bankruptcy process will be relatively quick. But he stressed to residents that they needn’t worry about the impact of the filing immediately.

“City services we provide will not be shut down,” Spivey said. “We’ll still be providing services, but the challenge is where we’re going to get to as we go through the bankruptcy process.”

The city has lost more than half of its population over the last 60 years. In 1950, the city was the fifth-largest city in the country with a population of around 1.8 million. Today its population is estimated at just under 700,000.

Who is to blame for this mega-disaster? Is it the United Auto Workers labor union, which has been completely owned by the Democrat Party machine and which funds that machine? Is it the municipal government labor unions, which have been completely owned by the Democrat Party machine and which have funded that machine? Or is it all the Democrat politicians who have rubber stamped the liberal labor union agenda for decades by giving them money and benefits vastly beyond what they were “entitled” to at the expense of the taxpayers???

Detroit was the FOURTH LARGEST CITY IN AMERICA.  It was a city that had everything.

And Barack Obama is determined to impose the fate of Detroit on the rest of America.  And he is succeeding.

Alveda King Blows Up Another Liberal Lie From Planned Parenthood

January 24, 2010

There are way too many liberal lies out there.  As one example, liberals have owned many large cities for a hundred years — and what has that dominion brought the residents of those cities who struggle with high poverty, crime, drugs, out-of-wedlock pregnancies, and despair?  The cities with the highest rates of all of these things can’t blame Republicans – because the voters never gave Republicans any chance to solve these problems.  Who knows, if voters of cities such as Detroit or Chicago were to give Republicans a shot, maybe they’d get another Giuliani?

But they’ll likely never find out, because they have bought in to so many liberal lies that the Democrats own them.  And take them for granted.

Here’s another lie that liberals want you to believe: that Martin Luther King is smiling down from heaven as nearly half of all black babies are ripped apart in abortion mills.

DR. KING TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD: YOUR LIES ABOUT MARTIN LUTHER KING ARE HURTING AMERICA!
Published 01/22/2010 – 5:57 a.m. CST
Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

From Dr. Alveda King

Washington, DC – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., responded to Planned Parenthood’s King Day press release linking the work of the abortion business to the civil rights leader.

“Every year Planned Parenthood tries to imply that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would approve of what it does today because he received an award from the organization 44 years ago,” said Dr. King. “Every year they lie. My Uncle stood for equal protection and non-violence – two concepts that Planned Parenthood violates every day by being the nation’s largest abortion business.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated that Planned Parenthood is no stranger to falsehoods. “Videotape reveals that Planned Parenthood doesn’t tell the truth to women and doesn’t tell legal authorities about possible criminal activity,” said Fr. Pavone. “Its implied claims about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are just more of Planned Parenthood’s stock in trade — deceit.”

“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not attend the event where his award was presented. We don’t even know if he wrote the words of the acceptance speech that was read at the banquet,” added Dr. King. “In 1966, abortion on demand was unthinkable. To imply that Uncle Martin’s receipt of that award constitutes his endorsement of what Planned Parenthood engages in today – the destruction of human lives – is an outrage.”

Dr. King is attending the events surrounding the 2010 Annual March for Life in Washington, DC, where she will give her post abortion testimony at a Silent No More Awareness Campaign rally, along with actress Jennifer O’Neil and many other post abortive women and men who regret lost fatherhood.

King also said that “Planned Parenthood’s attack on pregnancy care centers is deceitful and outrageous. Their claims that abortion is safe are so false. Abortion is linked to breast and cervical cancer and so many other health problems. Abortion isn’t health care. Of course a woman experiencing an unexpected pregnancy is distressed. That’s why they need love and not abortion, which is really a health threat to the women and a death warrant for their children.”

DR. ALVEDA C. KING: Daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Founder of King for America, Inc. Mother of six and doting grandmother. Consultant to the Africa Humanitarian Christian Fellowship. Former college professor. MA degree in Business Management. Published author of Sons of Thunder, The King Family Legacy and I Don’t Want Your Man, I Want My Own. Doctorate of Laws conferred by Saint Anslem College. Served on the boards and committees of Coalition of African American Pastors, and the Judeo-Christian Coalition for Constitutional Restoration. Served in the Georgia State House of Representatives. Accomplished actress and songwriter. She is a voice for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, speaking about her regret for her abortion. During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda’s family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama. “Daddy’s house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement,” she recalls. Alveda has continued her long-term work as a civil rights activist. Advocate for School Choice as a civil rights issue. Strong advocate for life of the unborn, faith in God not faith in government bureaucracy.

If there were a line to stand in to thank you for your stand for life, I would be in it.  Thank you for your love to both mothers and children, and thank you for your love for the truth, Alveda.

Some salient facts should demonstrate why Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (a Republican, by the way), would never have championed abortion:

But, abortion is a big business as well. Planned Parenthood performs around 300,000 abortions annually. It received more than 350 million dollars last year toward a total income of over 900 million dollars. To that end, it covers up the physical and sexual abuse of underage females, increased breast cancer rates, and severe emotional trauma resulting in increased suicide rates. How can any organization that protects the perpetrators of sexual abuse of young girls and is unconcerned that post abortive women commit suicide at twice the rate of their peers claim to be pro-woman? Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, a self professed Nazi sympathizer, said this when referring to prevention of births of Blacks and Jews:

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”

And, referring to blacks, she said:

“Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”

Just as Margaret Sanger envisioned, Planned Parenthood operates 80 percent of its clinics in minority neighborhoods. Almost as many African American children are aborted as are born. A black baby is three times more likely to be killed in the womb as a white baby. Since Roe vs Wade, abortion has reduced the black population by 25 percent of what it would have been. Twice as many African Americans have died from abortion as have died from violent crimes, heart disease, accidents and AIDS combined. Every three days more African Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in all its history.

Yet, Planned Parenthood holds a Margaret Sanger day each year, nearly elevating her to a sainthood of sorts. They present the “Maggie” (Margaret Sanger) award for promotion of their agenda by the media. Is there any other organization in America that could have so strong a following, command hundreds of millions of dollars in federal tax money and be promoted in our schools, yet be as openly and vehemently racist as this? Truth is the greatest enemy of Planned Parenthood and organizations like them and truth is our greatest ally.

Are we better off? Are families stronger? Are children emotionally healthier and happier? The answer is no.

The warning from God to those who are determined in their pride to reject His ways in Proverbs 8:36 comes immediately to mind:

“But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.”

And abortion is nothing if it is not the love of death.  Death as the solution for godless life.

I stand with Dr. Alveda King with the proclamation that anyone who has read and loved Martin Luther King’s great speeches should be offended that he would have championed the killing field of almost half of all black Americans by abortion.
