Since the 1820s America’s police have protected everyone whether they were rich or poor. Of course the wealthy got the best of what their police forces offered but the poor got reasonable services as well.
Nevertheless, police services are changing, and not in a way everyone will like.
The NRA rejoinder, “When seconds count the police are only minutes away” is becoming more of a reality by the day. Years of being bogged down with ancillary activities and continuing budget cuts are taking their toll on what we think police should be doing.

Amnesty Plan Equals ‘Unlimited Future Illegal Immigration’

An agreement over sweeping overhaul of immigration law reached by a bipartisan group of leading senators has quickly drawn its critics.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is developing a wide-ranging immigration reform plan—including steps to give more than 12 million illegals currently in the U.S. legal status—in an effort to seize the initiative on a contentious issue that polls show is hurting the Republican Party with the nation’s rapidly growing Hispanic population.
Rubio laid out the broad outline of his plan in an interview with the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal, at the same time President Obama announced he would push a comprehensive immigration plan of his own this March.
Surprisingly, both hold similar goals—creating a process in which undocumented workers in the U.S. can gain status and at the same time create a potential path to citizenship at some point in the future. …
Republican lawmakers have told Newsmax that Rubio’s plan could pass muster, even with immigration hardliners, if the plan included a significant restitution for illegals to pay and began taxing them for their work here. …

CNN’s Don Lemon discusses the possibility of profiling white men in an attempt to prevent gun violence and decrease the amount of mass shootings. Lemon argues that white males between the ages of 18 and 25 were behind nearly all recent mass killings.
While modern society prides itself on being unbiased, it’s no exception to the rule that every age has its fashionable prejudices — and unfashionable people. Among the latter today are white men, and the closer they are to “dead white male” status, to use a favored leftist descriptive, the greater the disdain in which they’re held.
A letter to the editor appeared on November 12, 2012 and it read as follows:
“I feel sorry for Jimmy Carter. His first four years as a president were also a complete failure, but he never received a second chance; my how times have changed.”
In regard to this reader’s mini editorial of 11/12 and his lament that Jimmy Carter never received a second chance after his failed presidency. Could it be that in his day he never had the benefit of runaway voter fraud, illegal foreign contributions, or an innate and complete lack of integrity? Times have indeed changed, but the question is whether or not that change is for the better. We already know that the answer to that question, and it is most definitely not!

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho – The housing market in the Northwest is finally showing signs of recovery. But there’s one sector of real estate that never let up during the economic downturn. Real estate agents who sell what’s known as “survival realty” are experiencing boom times. A remote corner of the Northwest has become a hotspot for home buyers wanting to ride out disaster – natural or otherwise.
When I first saw a book with the title, “White Girl Bleed A Lot” by Colin Flaherty, I instantly knew what it was about, even though I had not seen the book reviewed anywhere, and knew nothing about the author.
That is because I had encountered that phrase before, while doing research for the four new chapters on intellectuals and race that I added to the revised edition of my own book, “Intellectuals and Society,” published this year.
That phrase was spoken by a member of a mob of young blacks who attacked whites at random at a Fourth of July celebration in Milwaukee last year. What I was appalled to learn, in the course of my research, was that such race riots have occurred in other cities across the United States in recent years – and that the national mainstream media usually ignore these riots.

Anti-Obama Artist Strikes Again -Jon McNaughton, the artist who depicted Obama burning the
Buzz Feed ^ | 6/22/12 | Michael Hastings BuzzFeed Staff
Posted on Friday, June 22, 2012 6:12:52 PM by Nachum
Popular conservative artist Jon McNaughton has released a new painting, the latest in his controversial series of anti-Obama artwork.
The Empowered Man—which shows President Obama watching in horror as a thirty something white male, standing in front of the White House holds up the U.S. constitution in one hand and a wad of cash in the other—was released this week.
As NewsBusters reported Saturday, former ABC White House correspondent Sam Donaldson told the Huffington Post, “Many on the political right believe this president [Barack Obama] ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices [sic] and political view but for who he is, an African American! These people and perhaps even certain news organizations (certainly the right wing talkers like Limbaugh) encourage disrespect for this president.”
Yet again, President Barack Obama has spit on his oath of office and is refusing to carry out the duly enacted laws of the United States–precisely what the executive branch exists to do in America.
From The Hill:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.
The respected black commentator and philosopher Thomas Sowell has described the growing toll of black-on-white violence as a race war. I would take issue with that only because “war” implies a level of organization that supersedes that of the flash mobs.
Most of the riot organizers have moved on to cozier job titles, like Al Sharpton, who has gone from organizing riots and boycotts to holding down a desk at MSNBC and serving as the unofficial White House liaison to the black community. The old riots were usually a combination of organized protest and opportunistic violence. The organized riot is on the decline, but the opportunistic violence is still very much with us.
A witness told Florida cops that he saw Trayvon Martin straddling George Zimmerman and pummeling the neighborhood watch captain “MMA style” shortly before the unarmed teen was felled by a gunshot to the chest.
The witness’s account was included in Sanford Police Department reports released today.
Unbiased my ass:
Washington Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton touted the Post’s Romney-haircut “scoop” as a “deeply reported story” that “holds up to scrutiny.”
But the family of the haircut victims told ABC it was “factually inaccurate” and it shouldn’t be used as a political football. Pexton said nonsense: the Post has received “no specific complaint of inaccuracy.”
Perhaps more shocking is that the Post shamelessly admits they timed this story precisely to echo on the day after President Obama’s big pro-gay announcement.
actually waited a day longer than planned to let Obama have the front page to himself when he was being “historic.” Pexton’s only nod to the right: he panned the sneaky update that’s still not a “correction”:
Stu White was portrayed in the original story as being “disturbed” by the alleged haircut incident for decades, and then it was amended to a couple of weeks. That’s embarrassing, but not to the shameless Post

Do you notice how Romney and Obama hired special election gurus to garner the Mexican vote in the upcoming presidential election? They don’t address the black vote, the white vote or the American Hispanic vote. They connive for the Mexican vote.
A billboard exploded on the Los Angeles skyline two years ago by a local TV station: “Los Angeles, Mexico: Your Town, Your Community.”
It was spelled out in Spanish. CA was crossed out with a red X and replaced by the word “Mexico.” Two smiling Latinos representing over two million illegal aliens in the City of Angels smiled from their anchor desks. Behind them stood the LA skyline replete with skyscrapers. Most disconcerting was a statue, also in the billboard picture, that stands in the middle of Mexico City.
The Mexicanization of America, races, with total support from Barack Obama and his Congress, full speed across our country. La Raza, the most racist organization in the world, licks its chops as sheer numbers of illegal aliens have taken over Los Angeles. They’ve run Americans out of countless cities and communities. They’ve trashed school systems and bankrupted 86 hospitals. They’ve thrown trash throughout the park systems. They defy laws by not carrying car insurance, driver’s licenses, work off the books paying no taxes, brutalize our schools with their language, spread drugs, and more terrifying are the thousands of cases of TB and hepatitis they spread into Los Angeles. In other words, they’re bringing their Third World into our world.
In a wave of black-on-white crime since the February Trayvon Martin slaying, reports are emerging of dozens of brutal assaults by black mobs and assailants against white victims – and some attackers are citing the revenge for the Martin slaying as reason for their aggression.
Martin is the unarmed black teen who died after being shot by a Hispanic community-watch captain, George Zimmerman, in Sanford, Fla., sparking a wave of outrage o violence against whites long after the Feb. 26 incident.
On March 17 in Baltimore, Md., a white man was beaten, stripped naked and robbed. As a girl danced against him, a black man grabbed an item from the man’s pocket. When the victim attempted to recover his property, the man punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground, stripped his clothes off and taunted him.
Then one man in the mob, identifying himself on Twitter as “Lil Darren,” posted a video of the assault online, explaining: “me an[sic] my boys helped get justice fore[sic] trayvon.”
IronicSurrealism.com posted this tweet from “Lil Darren.”
In the video, a man named Aaron Parsons, 20, looked into the video camera while ridiculing the victim. He turned himself in to police after being linked to the incident. According to the Baltimore Sun, he has been charged with robbery, assault and other crimes.
Parsons’ attorney, Warren Brown, told the paper the suspect is a “good kid.”
“It’s not the punch that has aroused so much anger – it’s the humiliation after the punch, the disrobing of the guy and going through his pockets,” Brown said. “He wasn’t involved in any of that and has no real association with those people.”
Despite an apology from Parsons, Brown said his client would plead not guilty
The Sun reported:
“Facts are stubborn things.”
I love that quotation. John Adams said it back in 1774 when he took on the unpopular job of defending the British troops charged with the killings in the event now known as the Boston Massacre. Arguing off those same stubborn facts, Adams was able to get those troops acquitted.
“Facts are stubborn things.” You can lie about them and you can try to bury them, but they have a bad habit of revealing themselves. Sometimes, these revelations can take decades or even centuries, but sometimes — especially in a modern media age — those stubborn facts demand to be heard within days or weeks of the initial lies.
And so it is with the lies the media told about George Zimmerman.
“He’s a white man.” Wrong, so the media came up the tortured white-Hispanic. Turns out that even that is wrong. Zimmerman is also part black. Brutally Honest has the perfect summation: “In a delicious irony, it is Zimmerman who might actually look more like the son Obama never had.” Read more…
No charges over ‘reverse Trayvon Martin’ shooting in Phoenix area
americanthinker.com ^ | 4/25/12 | David Paulin
Posted on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 8:30:33 AM by loucon
Police have yet to charge a black motorist who shot dead a mentally disabled and unarmed “white Hispanic,” Daniel Adkins, in a Taco Bell parking lot near Phoenix earlier this month. The two reportedly exchanged words before the shooting that occurred, according to some accounts, after the motorist almost ran over Adkins who then banged his fist on the car’s windshield.
20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using “brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on.”
One of them said “Now thats justice for Trayvon.”
Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”
It could be said by some that the last couple of weeks have been nothing, if not a bizarre collection of Progressive political inanities, at best, in America, while the worst aspects of change we can believe are now coming into its dreaded full fruition, in fact.
It all seemed to have begun, sort of, with the Trayvon Martin-Media Mash v. George Zimmerman episode, which actually started well over a month ago, even with many other things coalescing at the same time. El Presidente’, after trying to blame the Republicans and Rush Limbaugh for Obama’s own direct and unwarranted attack on the Church in the form of forcing the provisioning of contraceptives, had then moved on to incite a Media Matters attack on Limbaugh himself, which ultimately led to Limbaugh’s radio show actually increasing its listenership by up to 60% in some cities.
The common thread there is multiculturalism, the notion that entire populations of different cultures can coexist in reasonable harmony together under a common sovereignty. There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.”
Most of us have heard about how the media won’t report on black-on-white crime. We also may know that authorities sometimes sweep it under the rug due to political pressure, usually with a wink and a nod. But not so in rural Alabama, where the police actually told a white crime victim that they “don’t mess” with a local black motorcycle gang.
CBS Baltimore reports the man was a tourist in town for St. Patrick’s Day, on his way back to the hotel after a night out. He was intercepted on the way by a group of “hoodlums,” punched in the jaw and sent flying to the concrete with a sickening thud.
After years of hearing liberals tell us that any criticism of President Obama is because he is Black, it seems to me they ought to admit that he got elected because he is Black. In the interest of accuracy, he is half-Black and half-White. I say this because the media has now begun calling the shooter of Trayvon Martin a “White-Hispanic.”
Beyond that, it was apparent to anyone watching and listening to Barack Obama that a moron was running for office; one willing to say anything for five minute’s advantage. He literally lied his way into the Oval Office.
Prison Planet.com » Powder Keg: Rap Song Charges ‘White Man’ With Murder: “Strap On Your AK’s… Let’s Start a Riot”
Flashback to August 16, 2011, when we published a White House Insider report detailing the possibility that the Obama administration would incite race riots in the build up to the 2012 Presidential election:
Via The Ulsterman Report:
Insider: Yes. It’s in place and underway – being developed. Further developed. It’s gonna – gonna tie it in with the unions somehow. I don’t know exaclty how – just that’s included in it. It will be an all out campaign on race. The goal is to completely mobilize the Black vote while shaming an even greater number of white voters into not opposing a second Obama term. They are gonna get out the guilt vote man. The guilt vote!
Ulsterman: Obama…Democrats in general, already get the Black vote – most of it.
Insider: They want all of it. Every last one. Then bring in the Hispanic vote, tie them up in this race issue as well. Republicans want to toss you out. Obama wants to bring you in. They hate the color of Obama’s skin just like they hate the color of yours. Hey White America, you aren’t part of that group who hates non-whites are you? If not, you better get out and vote for Barack Obama.
Ulsterman: That sounds overly simplistic and insulting to voters. You really think something like that would actually work?
Insider: Hell yes-yes… it can work. It’s not gonna come so easy as it did in 2008, but that’s why they plan to ramp it up – the race issue.
In that report we noted the distinct possibility that the Obama Team would Incite Race Riots and attempt to Use White Guilt in 2012 Election:
A politician, especially at the highest levels, will stop at nothing to maintain their power. President Obama is no different, and considering that mouthpieces in his administration have repeatedly referred to unsupportive segments of the electorate as terrorists and racists, is it any wonder they are considering this strategy?
Does anyone expect the President to successfully run on the economy, health care, tax cuts, or budget reductions?
It seems to us that his options are quite limited.
This means that we can soon expect agents provocateurs to embed themselves into Republican and Democrat Party rallies and campaign events. There will be no shortage of media coverage, and we can fully expect a progressively-leaning media to inflame and incite such events (remember the spitting incident on the steps of Capitol Hill?).
THE TRAYVON TIMELINE: HOW LOCAL CRIME STORY BECAME NATIONAL RACIAL OUTRAGE
Breitbart.com ^ | 3/29/12 | Joel B. Pollack
Posted on Friday, March 30, 2012 9:06:23 AM by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears
An analysis of media reports on the Trayvon Martin shooting reveals how a local crime story became a national racial outrage.
The incident happened on Feb. 26, 2012, and was primarily reported in local outlets. The first major national news report was on CBS This Morning on March 8, and did not mention race. The story did not take on a racial dimension until later that day, when the AP mistakenly identified the shooter as white (George Zimmerman is of mixed Hispanic descent).
The racial claims were then repeated and amplified by other media outlets, including Gawker, which claimed the neighborhood in which Martin was shot was “predominantly white” (it fact is is “almost 50 percent white,” according to the Daily Beast).
Lynn Stuter — The Color of Racism (“…the whole matter has now been handed off from local law enforcement, who have received death threats, to an outside prosecutor appointed by I’m-bending-over-backwards-to-prove-I’m-not-racist Jeb Bush…”)
The mainstream media has hyped it; Mama and Papa have had their faces before the mainstream media lens at every available opportunity; Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are running their mouths endlessly, pastors are hyping it, the mainstream media has turned it into a three-ring circus.
To hear all these talking heads tell it, Trayvon Martin was killed in cold blood.
Obama is not the cool, calm, and collected guy that he portrays publicly; he’s far from it. Obama is described privately as a thin-skinned hot-head when it comes to questioning his policies, or anything else, for that matter.
Though there has been a slight shift upward in Obama’s poll numbers, Obama knows the real temperature of the American people. Here are 10 indicators as to why Obama will have sleepless nights leading up to the election of 2012:1.
Obama started African Americans for Obama. When blacks supposedly voted at 95 percent for Obama in the last election, one has to question his motives in starting this group. The answer is that Obama’s poll numbers among blacks have fallen back to their lowest point, a clear sign that Obama is feeling the pressure.
If Obama loses his street cred amongst blacks, he will likely be abandoned by other groups. Obama must have the “race” element in 2012, even though the black vote will be much less significant in 2012. By the way, how would the media have covered “White Americans for McCain?”

The Trashing Of The White Working Class
February 15, 2012
By Russ Winter
There is a revealing book by Charles Murray called Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960–2010″ . This has a big focus on what nobody really wants to talk about, the white American working class. Santorum’s preaching about social values has merits but he panders and makes it mostly about black people or illegal immigrants. And so does Gingrich.
(“I prefer to be called black,” said Shawn Smith, an accountant from Houston. “How I really feel is, I’m American.”) ~ Some blacks insist: ‘I’m not African-American’ (Breaking news?)
The debate has waxed and waned since African-American went mainstream, and gained new significance after the son of a black Kenyan and a white American moved into the White House. President Barack Obama’s identity has been contested from all sides, renewing questions that have followed millions of darker Americans:

Coach Mitchell Goldstein — Ron Paul: Constitutionalist or Racist and Anti-Semite? “Political correctness at its worst”
Political correctness at its worst
The liberal/fascist press are all agog – 22 years ago, some questionable phrases appeared in four of Ron Paul’s newsletters. I have read the “hate” speech and the racist, anti-Semitic rants of Ron Paul. They amount to nothing! At root, this is a political witch hunt, a liberal lynching, in the best style of Goebbels, Hitler’s master marketing manipulator. See for yourself: [Link] and [Link]
This really comes down to the question of what constitutes racism. Is a statement racist if it is primarily factual but also has a negative overtone? My experience shows that anything liberals/progressives/fascists don’t like will automatically be labeled as racist, fascist, anti-environmental, anti-union, anti-democratic or fattening.
We all lose when perception is seen as reality, when style supersedes substance, when “winning is the only thing.” Yet, sadly, this is Americas political reality is 2011, and 2012 will be even worse.
The examples used in Ron Paul’s newsletters were not racist. It is not racist to state facts or comment on societal impressions related to a particular race or ethnicity.

MSNBC’s top executive said Saturday that he hasn’t decided whether conservative commentator and author Pat Buchanan will be allowed back on the network.
Buchanan, a former GOP presidential candidate and a paid MSNBC contributor, hasn’t been on the network since the publication of his book “Suicide of a Superpower” last October. The book has chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America” and its author argues that the United States is in the “Indian summer of our civilization.”
“When Pat was on his book tour, because of the content of the book, I didn’t think it should be part of the national dialogue much less part of the dialogue on MSNBC,” said MSNBC President Phil Griffin. The minority advocacy group Color of Change has circulated a petition urging MSNBC to fire Buchanan.

The USDA Part Of The Agenda21/ICLEI Takeover Plan Is In The Works

Posted on Friday, December 30, 2011 8:54:40 PM by Halfmanhalfamazing
The cancer of environmental justice, social justice, transportation justice (every justice but equal justice) are metasticizing throughout the body politic. The USDA has put out a document for public comment on it’s
Environmental Justice Strategic Plan. Page 14 of the draft specifies that the purpose is to help minority and/or low income populations including American Indian or Alaskan Native populations. It’s time to put an end to all these “special classes” of people. We are all Americans. Let’s not let our government put us in categories and play us off against each other.
There are 6 major goals outlined in the plan. I have focused below on two of them with some of their agency specific programs
Please use suggested comments or write your own. Question the very assumptions that underlie the plan-it’s all about race. Comments may be emailed to email@example.com.
(these are high level comments-for some specifics see the selected goals and activities section below or read the document and provide your own comments)
Comments may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Environmental Justice runs counter to the precepts of the US Constitution which is the ultimate law of the land. The United States was founded on EQUAL justice. This document perverts the equal justice provisions of the law by granting special priviledges to minorities and low income people.
2. The document is based on Executive Order 12898. An Executive Order is also subservient to the Constitution and should be disregarded.
3. USDA has settled the Pigford case based on these types of policies costing the US taxpayers billions of dollars in bogus claims of wrongly denied agricultural loans. Your policies have NOT been beneficial to any communities except a few select groups. This is a travesty that is being perpetrated on the taxpayer.
Ron Paul’s “Disgruntled” Staffer and the Press Smear ofRon Paul ~ “the kind of “scandal” that makes one wonder if the establishment press could ever get a smear story straight”
It’s the kind of “scandal” that makes one wonder if the establishment press could ever get a smear story straight. The script is that Rep. Ron Paul is a closet racist, is embroiled in a scandal he falsely denies, while new revelations about his racism are leaking out by the hour.
Establishment reporters ever so desperately want to create this image. And just because the facts aren’t there, that doesn’t keep the mainstream media from trying. Such was the case when a disgruntled former Paul staffer blogged his disagreements with the presidential candidate, which became the following lead in the New York Daily News: “A former Ron Paul staffer says the Republican presidential candidate is ‘unsettled by being around gays personally,’” the Daily News story reported December 27, “and is ‘out of touch’ with black and Hispanic voters.”
The story’s lead paragraph seemed to fit the establishment media talking points that Ron Paul is a racist, if not anti-Semitic, person. It appears to be a follow-up to the legitimate, but minor, news about Paul’s inattentive management of newsletters that were published under his name in the 1980s and early 1990s that contained a handful of racist remarks.
But the lead disappointed. There was no fire under the smoke, just lots of mirrors. The former staffer in question, Eric Dondero, denied in the same blog post that Representative Ron Paul had ever been either a racist or anti-Semite:

The food famously craved by stoners in the 2004 movie “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” can be had with a glass of wine or a domestic or seasonal beer at a Lafayette, Ind., restaurant that fuses a conventional White Castle with a new concept for the company called Blaze Modern BBQ. Wine costs $4.50 and beers start at $3.

From the breaking news, one might think that with a woman who claims she had a 13-year affair with presidential candidate Herman Cain, someone is being seriously exposed as a hypocrite. That would be the press. The media can’t deny they continue to display a lousy double standard. For Republican candidates, scandalous news is instant. For Democrats, it’s eventual, if at all!
Ginger White‘s charges sound a lot like Gennifer Flowers in 1992, when she said she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton. So many in the press pounce on Flowers as unequivocal evidence of the media’s sense of balance. After all, they will remind us, just look how we covered that scandal!
Yes, look. It’s a wonderful exercise in media disinformation. Political junkies will recall that Flowers held a press conference carried live on CNN on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 23, 1992. It had all the elements for snappy news. She played audiotapes of phone conversations with Clinton. Despite all this, the first network mention was a short story by NBCs Lisa Myers, more than 24 hours later. Other than that, the three broadcast network morning and evening newscasts waited to breathe the name “Flowers” for four days…..

Perry’s reintroduction continues

The telegenic Texan took two steps forward sitting in the “center chair” on Fox Monday evening. One step backward too alas, but more about that in a bit.
Gov Perry was relaxed and alert as he fielded a variety of questions. He smartly used his answers to remind conservatives why they should consider him.
This is a man who is a quick study and a formidable politician. Instead of just Texas this and Texas that he pointed out that the Lone Star state all by its lonesome is the 13th largest economy in the world. A nice way to pivot into what will be the big issue in 2012 without sounding provincial.
Zero-based foreign aid will not only warm conservative innards, it will play well as part of the spending argument. And he noted the UN can expect a zero-budget starting point. Long overdue and just hearing it made me smile. Asked about Pakistan’s aid Perry demonstrated…gasp..nuance. He noted Pakistan is a difficult problem not the least because it has nukes. Nice answer.
In Barack Obama’s keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic convention, he rebuked “those who are preparing to divide us,” and famously declared, “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 and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”
Paradoxically, his unifying speech seven years ago and his divisive rhetoric of today both reveal the president’s governing philosophy, at its very core, is that of a community organizer. The only thing that has changed is the reality of how the economic policies of a community organizer when applied at the national level are themselves, inherently divisive.
Once elected president, Obama’s vision of the United States as a single community collided with one of the fundamental goals of a community organizer, to gain political power for the purpose of transferring resources from those outside the community to those inside the community. By so doing, the community organizer accomplishes several objectives.
First, he serves his community by increasing the resources in that community, from increased government services to expanded payrolls.
Second, the community organizer increases his or her power by direct or indirect control of who benefits from those additional resources and by becoming the spokesperson for the community.
The challenge that Obama faces as president is that the community now consists of the entire United States. When seen through the lens of a community organizer, the vision of a single American community must fracture into those who are inside the community, and therefore deserve favorable treatment, and those who lay outside the community, and who rightfully should fund the community organizer’s goals.
