Obama's Mentor: 'We Hid This Throughout 2008 Campaign'

"Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell." Those are the words of Barack Obama in reference to the controversial racialist Derrick Bell. Prof. Charles Ogletree, Barack Obama's mentor said "We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign." As more is uncovered about Prof. Derrick Bell and his radical views, it will become clear why Prof. Ogletree wanted this video hidden.
__________________________________________________ ______

Below is footage of Barack Obama praising and hugging Professor Derrick Bell. It was spliced and diced by the media to avoid showing just how close Obama was to Bell. More than that, a close associate of the Obama campaign, Harvard Law School’s Professor Charles Ogletree, admitted on our exclusive tape, “We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign. I don’t care if they find it now.”
Well, we found it. And it is damaging, because Barack Obama was as close or closer to Derrick Bell than he ever was to Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn’t merely sit in the pews – or not -- for Derrick Bell. He didn’t just hang out with Derrick Bell for prayers. He said:

“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”

If we did, here’s what we’d be opening our hearts and minds to. This is a close associate of Jeremiah Wright, a man who was quoted by Jeremiah Wright regularly. This is a man who posited that the civil rights movement was too moderate because it accepted the status quo, and believed that the entire legal and constitutional system had to be transformed in radical fashion. This is a man so extreme that, as we’ve reported, he wrote a story in 1993 in which he posited that white Americans would sell black Americans into slavery to aliens to relieve the national debt, and that Jews would go along with it.

There’s far more coming on Derrick Bell. This is just the beginning. And this video is a smoking gun showing that Barack Obama not only associated with radicals, he was their advocate.

Unfortunalty the lame stream media as well as people like sambo will continue to give the President a pass on his relationship with radicals throughout his life. Just like they give Maher and Obermnan a pass on the hate they spew but go nuts over what Rush says. Do not know where you get your facts sambo but it is pretty clear what Prof Ogletree said as it is captured on video regardless of the editing.

You guys are fighting a losing battle. Liberals will never admit that Obama holds radical views as evident by his past relationships and actions. They blindly bury their heads in the sand. Oh, and then they will attack you with rhetoric filled with emotion and avoid the issues. Maybe more people should care. That shows the sad state of despair we are in as a country. HOPE AND CHANGE!!

Merit? You need to cut back on the meds! I like want Dennis Miller said if I was running against Pres. Obama I would put the running debt meter in front on the podium and just stand there.

Lately most of what he has had to say completely contradicts what he said during his campaign in "08 yet he gets a pass on that also. Where was the debt three years ago? What were gas and food prices three years ago? What was the total number of people in the work force three years ago compared to today?

Debt-way up. Prices of everything-way up. Total number of people in the work force today-way down. Merit my rear end! The toads (as in liberal progressives) will always give Pres. Obama a pass on everything!

U.S. Unemployment Up in February
Underemployment is 19.1%, up from 18.7% in January
by Dennis Jacobe, Chief EconomistPRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 9.1% in February from 8.6% in January and 8.5% in December.




The 0.5-percentage-point increase in February compared with January is the largest such month-to-month change Gallup has recorded in its not-seasonally adjusted measure since December 2010, when the rate rose 0.8 points to 9.6% from 8.8% in November. A year ago, Gallup recorded a February increase of 0.4 percentage points, to 10.3% from 9.9% in January 2011.

In addition to the 9.1% of U.S. workers who are unemployed, 10.0% are working part time but want full-time work. This percentage is similar to the 10.1% in January, but is higher than the 9.6% of February 2011.



As a result, Gallup's U.S. underemployment measure, which combines the percentage of workers who are unemployed and the percentage working part time but wanting full-time work, increased to 19.1% in February from 18.7% in January. This is an improvement from the 19.9% of February 2011.




Looking Ahead to the Government's Unemployment Report

The February unemployment rate the U.S. government reports on Friday morning will be based largely on mid-month conditions. In mid-February, Gallup reported that its U.S. unemployment rate had increased to 9.0% from 8.3% in mid-January. The mid-month reading normally provides a relatively good estimate of the government's unadjusted unemployment rate for the month.

Assuming the government's unadjusted rate increases -- from its 8.8% in January -- to at least match Gallup's mid-month measurement for February, then the government should also report an increase in the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for February. If the government's unadjusted unemployment rate increases to the degree that Gallup's has from mid-month to mid-month, then the government's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate could show an even larger increase.

However, the extent of the seasonal adjustment also makes a difference. Last February, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics applied a seasonal adjustment factor of 0.5 points to its unadjusted unemployment rate for the month. If that same seasonal adjustment is applied to Gallup's mid-month unemployment rate of 9.0%, it would produce a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 8.5%. Alternatively, if it was applied to Gallup's full-month unemployment rate of 9.1%, it would produce a seasonally adjusted rate of 8.6%. Gallup therefore forecasts an increase in the unemployment rate.

Gallup in February also found a decline in its Job Creation Index, which tends to support an increase in the February unemployment rate.

The consensus forecast, however, is for no change in the government's unemployment rate. February jobless claims were running at roughly 350,000 during the month, implying a relatively stable unemployment rate. Additionally, Wednesday's ADP report suggesting that private-sector jobs increased by more than 200,000 in February is also somewhat supportive of a stable unemployment rate forecast.

Regardless of what the government reports, Gallup's unemployment and underemployment measures show a substantial deterioration since mid-January. In this context, the increase in unemployment as measured by Gallup may, at least partly, reflect growth in the workforce, as more Americans who had given up looking for work become slightly more optimistic and start looking for work again. So while there may be positive signs, the reality Gallup finds is that more Americans are looking for work now than were doing so just six weeks ago.

Survey Methods
Gallup classifies American workers as underemployed if they are either unemployed or working part time but wanting full-time work. The findings reflect more than 25,000 phone interviews with U.S. adults, aged 18 and older in the workforce, collected during a given month. Gallup's results are not seasonally adjusted and are ahead of government reports by approximately two weeks.

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking from Feb. 1-29, 2012, with a random sample of 27,275 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.

For results based on the total sample of U.S. workers in the workforce, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±1 percentage point.

Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones and cellular phones, with interviews conducted in Spanish for respondents who are primarily Spanish-speaking. Each sample includes a minimum quota of 400 cell phone respondents and 600 landline respondents per 1,000 national adults, with additional minimum quotas among landline respondents by region. Landline telephone numbers are chosen at random among listed telephone numbers. Cell phone numbers are selected using random-digit-dial methods. Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member had the most recent birthday.

Samples are weighted by gender, age, race, Hispanic ethnicity, education, region, adults in the household, and phone status (cell phone only/landline only/both, cell phone mostly, and having an unlisted landline number). Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2011 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older non-institutionalized population living in U.S. telephone households. All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting and sample design.

In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.

No one is stooping to these tactics, remember the late Sen Byrd was once a KKK member. He admitted it, he said it was a lapse in judgment and moved on, he at least had the decency to admit it. BHO acts like these people he was hanging out with was no big deal, at least Byrd knew he was wrong, BHO is never wrong so maybe there is the difference.

So, basically, unemployment hasn't changed enough in the last two years to be outside the margin of error.
That would be an indication that the economy is not as good as the MSM keeps telling us.

I went to a PCC meeting two weeks ago.

Anyone know what is happening to the USPS??

Out of roughly 500 mail processing "plants" the USPS is shutting down about 260 of them.
They are asking to reduce down the street mail delivery to 4 days a week.
They admitted they can NOT pay the benefits they owe NOW, let alone going forward.

All kinds of reasons and excuse to use.
But the number one reason they offer???

The ECONOMY is awful!!!
I mean maybe they were lieing to us, maybe not.


WE desperately need 4 more years of this.:rolleyes:

The USPS is going down the can due to having to prefund a pension plan as well. I think for the next 75 years or so. I say this. Make it .75 to mail a letter to help them out. It is still the cheapest way to get a letter from one coast to another or Alaska to HI. Most mail is not done via the USPS, heck even the fed gov does not always use the USPS.

Stan,

you know what i plan to do about it in November. i'm not a fan of what's going on now. please don't paint me with that brush.

i just was pointing out the fact that that poll wasn't a smoking gun, per se.

the economy is improving a bit in CT. anyone with an Engineering degree or who has Drafting/designer skills could get a job where i work, as long as they can pass the drug screening. we never have enough Engineers, and there are plans to hire about 100 Draftsmen/Designers in the Structural Design department alone.

i have read mutiple articles stating that there are a lot of jobs available nationwide that are not being filled because they can't find skilled workers. a lot of folks need to get their butts in gear and get schooled/trained so they can join or re-join the workforce.-Paul

I have a good friend who works for the VA here in WI.
He tells me the same exact thing.



Right or wrong, reasons valid or not, the economy is not recovering at a brisk pace.
If the economy is the sole issue (which it isn't) President Obama needs a miracle.
The MSM may not be able to pull this one off for him.

Pretty safe prediction, Stan. The Democrats have nothing but lies from the oval office to offer the voting public. Unfortunately, the MSP will continue to present all the lies in a flowery way, so the sheeple that are on the government take will continue to vote for this oligarchy.

When we had the layoffs at Boeing they changed the badges in the company from Yellow for engineers to orange which included supervision. I was a vocal critic of that - & when someone asked me why my reply "Not everyone is smart enough to be an engineer, any dumb s**t can be a supervisor". It got a lot of mileage around the company to the point I was told to quit making the supervisors feel inferior ;). A college education unless it is in the sciences is the new HS.

The economy continues to improve. Bottom line with the economy is that debt is no longer fueling it. So until debt is repaid, it will continue to be weak in areas of the country. Has nothing to do with the current president, but had a lot to do with the last one:(

Actually, you should have said "a lot to do with the last one, but the current one made it a lot worse than it should be."

If you think about it, Bush was President when a lot of this went down and he did little to stop it, some will say he provoked it. What Barry has done is taken a bad situation and made it a whole heck of a lot worse by creating "jobs" and adding "infrastructure," thereby increasing the deficit and the debt.

Unfortunately, it doesn't matter. People are spending more and feeling better about the world around them. Barry will be reelected. Unfortunately, we have four more years of this and he will be further energized by his victory in November.
