Funny how things work out. It was almost midnight when I arrived at my hotel in Fairfax, Virginia. Today I have my new board member orientation at the National Rifle Association headquarters. It was a busy Monday, speaking at the General Tommy Franks Four-Star Leadership seminar at Oklahoma Christian University in Edmund. I then drove back down to Dallas, repacked, and caught a plane at Love Field for Reagan National. Today, President Barack Obama heads to Dallas, and I have some ideas about what he needs to say.
Here I am in the D.C. area strengthening my stance and commitment on the Second Amendment. Obama — well, the first thing he needs to do is meet with Dallas Police Chief Brown and allow him to “untangle the motive” perspective for President Obama regarding the cretin, the piece of excrement, who gunned down those Dallas police officers.
It would appear to anyone — with a functional brain — listening to Chief Brown, that they know exactly what the motive was behind the savage ambush of those Dallas officers who were protecting a protest march last week, But it seems our president needs a personal tutorial from Chief Brown.
I find it rather perplexing that Barack Obama could not find the time to go to New York City after the executions of NYPD Officers Ramos and Liu: why? Heck, this is the same Barack Obama who didn’t even attend the funeral services for the highest ranking officer to be killed in Afghanistan, Major General Harold Green. So what gives about this particular incident?
This is what we need to know more than anything. Since President Barack Hussein Obama spoke out last week from Warsaw, Poland on the police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota where the facts were not yet known — he has a penchant for that — here are the results:
Since Mr. President decided once again to weigh in on something about which he was ill-informed and turn this into another of his misguided lectures on race in America, seven law enforcement officers have been killed, 34 wounded. And the assaults continue. Just this morning, 5 people were arrested just miles from where I am right now, for apparently planning an ambush on police.
Since the president decided not to speak about the rule of law, justice and our respect and regard for the Thin Blue Line, the police community has lost brothers and paid a price.
This goes back to a president who early on referred to the police officers in Cambridge, Mass. as having “acted stupidly.” A president who did nothing to dispel the false narrative involving Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson — and dispatched White House representatives for the funeral of one Michael Brown — who can best be described as having enacted criminal conduct trying to take a police officer’s firearm. It has been Barack Obama, the nation’s “first black president” who is continually stoking the flames of racial division.
Remember the New Black Panther Party and the case of voter intimidation in Philadelphia? But along with the “first black attorney general,” nothing happened. It has been Barack Obama who embraced the movement called “Black Lives Matter” — funny thing, neither Obama nor BLM seem to know the directions to Chicago.
It was in Chicago over the Independence Day weekend where nearly 60 shootings took place — guess those black lives just don’t matter. And now we have former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani under fire for saying what needed to be said: “the very nature of a group called Black Lives Matter is racist.”
Seven officers have lost their lives and another 34 wounded, and no one has held Barack Obama accountable for the false narrative and statistics he uttered last week in Warsaw.
As the Wall Street Journal reported,”President Barack Obama said early Friday morning that the police shooting deaths of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota should trouble all Americans and reflect deep-seated racial disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system.
“The data shows black folks are more vulnerable to these kinds of incidents. We have seen tragedies like this too many times. There’s a big chunk of our fellow citizenry that feels as if because the color of their skin they’re not being treated the same. And that hurts. And that should trouble all of us.”
A wrongful shooting is troubling, but to try and turn it into some narrative that black males are being “hunted down” by the police and building a tinderbox waiting to be lit aflame is even more troubling.
Obama stated, “All of us as Americans should be troubled by these shootings because these are not isolated incidents,” he said. “They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system.”
But, Mr. President, why don’t you weigh in on the inner city black on black violence that’s so prevalent in your own hometown? In street terms, this is what we call “cherry-picking” — aka known as patronizing pandering in the political world, and as Rahm Emanuel says, “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
These officers have died and been wounded for what reason? They had no part in any shooting, and the justice system, like in Ferguson, Missouri and North Charleston SC, must be allowed to go forward. Heck, we learned the police officer in Minnesota was not even white.
As we reported earlier this week, here are five facts you will never hear in the mainstream media. You can read the full article here.
1. Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015.
2. More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks.
3. Data show black men are more likely to die by the gun of a cop than an unarmed white man…but this does not tell the whole story. The “unarmed” label is literally accurate, but it frequently fails to convey highly-charged policing situations. At least five black victims had reportedly tried to grab the officer’s gun, or had been beating the cop with his own equipment. Some were shot from an accidental discharge triggered by their own assault on the officer. And two individuals included in the “unarmed black victims” category were struck by stray bullets aimed at someone else in justified cop shootings. If the victims were not the intended targets, then racism could have played no role in their deaths.
4. Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers.
5. Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops.
Further, a recent study by a black Harvard professor ALSO shows blacks are not disproportionately shot more often by police.
I know, facts REALLY suck, especially when you have an ideological political agenda that requires emotional false narratives for its advancement. The problem here, what I find truly troubling, is innocent law enforcement officers lost their lives because of this agenda. It is despicable, heinous and irresponsible.
So today, I call upon President Barack Obama to apologize to our law enforcement officers for having a part in fomenting this violence — which continues, as just this morning, five people were arrested in Washington D.C. for apparently plotting to ambush police officer.
I demand he address these facts and demonize any movement that would wantonly target law enforcement officers for attack.
I admonish him to vehemently express his support for our law enforcement community and not use today as another opportunity for some “professorial” type lecture to us about “getting along, and love.” We don’t need any more soaring rhetoric and hyperbole. We need leadership at this crucial moment, and if Obama is incapable of delivering it, then his legacy will be the supposed post-racial president, who set back race relations in America nearly fifty years.
Funny, the guy who talked about “no red states or blue states, but United States” in his breakout DNC convention keynote speech has ended up being nothing more than a lying, deceitful and manipulative charlatan — but a damn good one.
Mr. President, you can however, today in Dallas, change my assessment of you and your character.
Not holding my breath.
