When the slave would talk down on his master he didn't kill him he'd send some ol uncle tom house *** to calm him down .Malcom X According to Bobby Hemmitt, underground Metaphysician and Occultist lecturer, "This Black elite society based on Skull and Bones (Yale) was chosen by the U.S. Government (Illuminati) to run Black neighborhoods." See here: Conspiracy Theorist and Futurologist Steve Cokely, had this to say: "Anywhere there are prominent professional Blacks, chances are they're in the Boule". Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson are reported to have been Boule members, among many other high profile, successful and moneyed Blacks such as Barack Obama, Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton and Thurgood Marshall. See this: The members of the Boule pose as Freedom Fighters or Civil Rights Activists on the surface. In truth, the elite members are operating for personal gain. The Boule works in concert with their masters in maintaining the grip of Illuminati supremacy on their people. - See more at:
Many leaders and presenters have impress large audiences by the skill and passion with which they deliver their messages. There are a few who have shown their ability to communicate powerfully and effectively : Here we have in mind Ronald Reagan, Franklin Roosevelt, John F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and obviously Barack Obama. John Kennedy moved a nation with the force and conviction of his address; some of the phrases he used still inspire our thinking and speaking. Ronald Reagan earned his nickname, "the great communicator", by making listeners feel as though he was speaking directly to them alone, bringing them into the inner circle of his thoughts. Franklin Roosevelt held a country together for the depression (slump) at least partly through the reassuring communication of his famous Fireside Chats. It is no wonder that there are so many famous quote from these famous speakers. There are powerful speakers in every walk of life. Oprah Winfrey rose to fame at least partly on her willin . ...

However, it saddens one to note that a nation of the largest population of black men and women could find herself in the armpit of an inept leadership, a situation that has exposed this polity called Nigeria to oppro ...
Adalai told me that her first grade class had a memorial service for Martin Luther King, Jr. because he died. She then said that Barack Obama was lazy, and Rutherford B. Hayes had a broken wing. And, then I realized that they were butterflies...
Congratulations, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, the dream that you saw over 150 years ago has finally come true. Had you been alive today, you would've been the happiest person alive, literally speaking. Just like Barack Obama made Martin Luther King Jr's dream come true, Shri Narendra Modi ji has been a 21st century Mahendra (yes Mahendra) and has made your dream come true.

Alonzo Bodden I've decided I'll keep supporting Clippers. Since Sterling doesn't want to see me. I'll be there. A boycott won't hurt a billionaire but apparently black faces will *** him off. His kind didn't want to see us in baseball so Jackie Robinson showed up. Didn't want us in front of bus so Rosa Parks showed up didn't want us in schools or at lunch counters so Martin Luther King showed up didn't want us in White House so Barack Obama showed up. Now you don't want us at basketball game. Well we're showing up & we're black white brown yellow & whatever & we're all showing up together. The Clippers are our team. Not yours F**k you Donald Sterling. It's time you learned Mad Men is the past not the future. We'll show up until you leave. "F'N EH!!

Like seriously, is GEJ doing it like Obama for starters? Put GEJ on a podium, give him the microphone let him speak extempore to his audience and he will stutter as he blabs about his amorphous Transformation Agenda incoherently. In terms of eloquence Bros J does not come anywhere close to Obama, so it is with every other spheres of engagement. This is not about discrimination but Bros J holds a patency in inferiority complex at the global village square! Enters Tata Madiba into the mix!

Am I the only one that has seen this 'Jonathan is doing it!' advert? I think it's an insult to compare GEJ with the likes of Martin Luther king jnr., Li Kwan Yu, Nelson Mandela & Barack Obama.
Martin Luther King did it;Nelson Mandela did it; Barack Obama did it; Goodluck Jonathan CAN NOT do it. Because he is CLUELESS.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Oprah Winfrey. Michael Jordan. Barack Obama. These are well-known individuals who had to overcome adversities,
"African-American voters saw Barack Obama as the next Martin Luther King. Too bad he didn't live up to…" — heynorm48
REBASING GEJ: just when I'm yet to recover from the GDP fraud, I have just heard another ridiculous spin in the unending series to advertise a bad 'product' by one low-life group called Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria. The same group has immediately credited Nigeria's new economic status to President Jonathan's Transformation Agenda. Goodluck Jonathan is being compared to Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Lee Kuan Yu and Barack Obama. One of my most embarrassing moments as a Nigerian.
at this moment I would like us to look at the ANC. *TOPIC: Jacob Zuma IS NOT GOOD IN HIS PRESIDENCY. Personally i love ANC, and yes indeed it is the leading party in South Africa, but Im not impressed about the president Jacob Zuma, I think he is not good enough in his presidency... Nothing impressing about him, he doesnt have an art of speaking, he is not brave, even his voice tone when adressing his speeches, he sounds like he is not sure of what he is saying. Look at some great leaders... *Martin Luther King *Rudolph Hittler *Nelson Mandela *George W Bush *Barack Obama *Robert Mugabe etc They all have famous qoutes, because they are/were brave, they have that art, that makes you get interest to listen to them and follow them, the brave men indeed. So what about our president, from 2009? What reminds indivisual South African about him... "mshini wami" what was that mshini for? I think we need new president, with leadership capability in order to vote ANC again in the next elections. Well it is my opinio ...

So yesterday I asked my art student, who's a freshman in the Compton school district, what kind of programs and or activities they had going on for Black History Month. He said some girls from the school put together an African dance routine and some speaker came to the school and talked about scholarships. I then asked him "They didn't make y'all do any reports or papers?" He laughed and said NOPE. But he said last year they did but they could only write about Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr. So after hearing this my first reaction was to shake my head in disgust.

Was very disappointed with our public school system tonight. While having a discussion with my oldest daughter Allison tonight about what she was learning in school, the fact that it was Black History Month came up. I asked her what and who she was learning about and was appalled at the discovery of her learning. Out of all the legendary black/African American influences/greats over the history of America, her list was Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which those are great, still don't think Rosa Parks is on the same level as Dr. King, but she did have her one great moment. She did know of Thurgood Marshall, another great achiever, but then said that Barack Obama was second on the list of greatest only to Dr. King. If that wasnt enough on its own, I was greatly disappointed to learn she knew not one of the following: Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, or, my personal favorite, George Washington Carver! But, to make it even better, she told me she knew one I forgo ...
Barack Obama says "An individual has not begun to live until he can rise above the narrow horizons of his particular individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity." —Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Shoutout to Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, Muhammad Ali and, of course, Martin Luther King. Legends.
Rev Al Sharpton quoted.."They said we'd never have a black President.never will a black quarterback win the Super Bowl.We did it twice! Doug Williams( Redskins) Barack Obama.thank you Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.
Sarah Palin honors Martin Luther King Day by telling Barack Obama to stop 'playing the race card'
An amazing moment during Religious School Opening Assembly this morning. I asked: who is the man in this picture (referring to Martin Luther King on the day of his I Have A Dream speech). A pre-school student with her hand raised said "Nelson Mandela." The next child who had her hand raised said "The President," referring to Barack Obama. Amazing! I could not have scripted this had I wanted to. Truly, Mandela and Obama were inspired by King's dreams and actions, as were the 4 NC A&T students including Franklin McCain who died only days ago. Be sure to do something on MLK Day that will make the world a better place for all.

BARACK OBAMA, RAJ PATEL, + PRINCE WILLIAM Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Barack Obama are complete opposites!!! President Barack Obama (Reptilian/Nephilim/Anunnaki) is a great deceiver, liar, homosexual, and Anti-Christ puppet of Satan. He is not a Christian, but a Luciferian who lets Muslims believe he is one of them. President Obama has stated United States is "no longer a Christian Nation". Barack Obama in Arabic and Persian means "the blessing of Hussein". When written in Persian, his name reads "O Ba Ma" and means "he is with us". He will use Muslims to carry out chaos in United States (Babylon). This Well Spoken Manipulative President has people at rallies chant "Yes, we Can" and when back-masked, it translates to "Thank you Satan" and the whole song has evil messages with Back-masking Techniques used. The "Yes, We Can" slogan derived from President Ahmadinejad (Prince of Persia) of Iran who had a slogan during his campaign "We Can" used 4 Years Earlier. Daniel 7:20 is an Anti-Christ scrip ...
'A lot more George W. Bush than Abraham Lincoln or John F. Kennedy or Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela.' That's what The People will say 100 years from today when they talk about the legacy of American President... Barack Obama. For the good of your nation... Mr. Obama PLEASE resign.
This is the day to remember Jesus Christ, Prophet Muhammad, Martin Luther King, King Sielahssie I, Malcom X Shabazz, Sojourner Truth, Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, and any other person of color who teaches us to love ourselves for who we are and to stand for the positive development for our people, Nation and Human Race.
We have and had Du Bois, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Julius Nyerere, Barack Obama: but there's no doubt as to who the title of the Greatest Black Man ever would go to: the Madiba of Mzansi!

Barack Obama is not to be confused with great black men like Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Mohammed Ali or even Mike Tyson come to think of it, it should be a sin to utter his name in the same breath as thier's how dare they even suggest such a thing. This is not an angry post I'm just saying. Sad times I feel sorry for the American people to be duped and let down time after time by such a compassionless puppet shame on him and all in the name of power well I think the power is running out America is waking up. Long live America Under the guidance of a compassionate great soul I pray for this... !!
Ok, I want to put something out there. I don’t hate One Direction. I don’t hate their music. Some of their stuff is actually quite good. What I do hate, is the fans. They are just obsessed to the point that nothing in the world is better. The post on the Doctor Who trailer that many people have seen, no. Doctor Who has been around longer than One Direction, so There are alot of better things. I am not saying 1D are rubbish, they’re not. But Doctor Who, The Queen, the band Queen, Barack Obama, food, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Anne Frank and mothers in general are all better than One Direction. Stop being so obsessed. Have your fandom, go ahead. Just when their song comes on, don’t scream. It’s a song. If they walk down the street next to you, feel free. They are famous. just don’t be so, what’s the word? annoying with it. Respect other fandoms, just like I respect yours and don’t scream in the middle of Asda (Wallmart). Rant over ~Emma. BTW, I put this on Tumblr. my URL is Potteratthed ...
No, this isn’t going to be a thing now. I just had a few things to say, and I’ll resume life off the radar soon enough.   I don’t have the right to laugh at Sean “Puff Daddy/P. Diddy” Combs as much as my younger self and his antics might insist. Whatever else is true, Combs is a product of 80s Harlem, and has done a good deal to define what that means in the larger cultural context. A quick glance through his Wikipedia page even suggests he sees himself as a compassionate entrepreneur; a contradiction and a fable, but not these days an often told one. Yet I won’t hesitate to claim that the man who dedicated a fragrance to Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, and Barack Obama (you know, Black People who “made it”) has an undeniably skewed perspective on race.   Of course, at present I want to comment on his odd unpaid endorsement of 12 Years a Slave, which is here: . We must see the movie and take our kids, Diddy tells us, so that we can begin to understand. What exactly we will understand i ...
MUSLIM HERITAGE IN AMERICA Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, witnessed a Muslim charity, shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, seen a Muslim Candy Striper, or seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life??? The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY? Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America 's history." AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Obama: Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians. Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians. Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence ? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so. Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England? No. Did Muslims fight during the Civil ...

You know Paul again made a reference to a wedding in the Style of the old south Where she talked about a plantation wedding with black man as servants. Wendy Williams said she was offended by this. Really Wendy. So if you're going to do something in a historical theme Then we should abandon history? Okay you Hollywood Dingbat let me ask you this. How out of place and strange The movie Amidstad have been if the slaves on the ship were portrayed as white men. Really can you see the new movies.. The story of Dr. Martin Luther King starring as Dr. King Tom Cruise. George Washington our founding father. Starring Samuel Jackson as George Washington. Lee versus Grant a story of the American Revolution. Starring Whoopi Goldberg as Ulysses S Grant. And George Lopez is Robert E Lee.. It gets better let's look at the future Barack Obama the first black president starring Seth McFarlane. I'm playing Hillary Clinton... Will Smith. Playing Joe Biden.. Forest Whitaker
Hello friends... What am about to share with you is Komla Dumor's opinion in one of his articles concerning Africa..."52 years ago, the eyes of the world were on Ghana. And a young preacher named Martin Luther King travelled here to Accra to watch the Union Jack come down and the Ghanaian flag go up. This was before the march on Washington or the success of the Civil Rights Movement in my country. Dr King was asked how he felt whiles watching the birth of a nation. And he said:"It renews my conviction in the ultimate triumph of justice". This was when Barack Obama was speaking to Ghana's Parliament in 2009". to be continued...
“So much suffering and so many struggles. So much torture, pain, agony and abuse. The horrors of the middle passage; the cruel sting of the slave master’s whip; the satanically sown strange fruit that desecrated southern trees; the brutality of fire hoses and police dogs; the burning crosses and Church bombings; the sacrifices of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, and countless others; the murders of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Medgar Evers… all the terror that was endured, all the blood that was spilt, all the tears that were shed, all the lives that were lost, all the inhumanity and injustice that was overcome… all this so that an evil, self-serving, egotistical, bourgeois politrickster like Barack Obama can continue the oppression in the name of 'hope and change'?! Wake the fup people!!!” Selam, +GMK+

6 MONTHS before election 2008 I attended the Glenn Beck telethon across from Holy Family Diocese in Yakima. Next day, started the Glenn Beck Meetup Club and later carried cameras from ECTV to Yakima for Tea Party Conventions and parades. Why? Toltec Seers call it 'Seeing in the 2nd Attention. I 'saw' Barack Obama was no Colonel West, or Doctor Carlson, Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice or General Powell.nor Martin Luther King. Why? I had returned from living with wife in Venezuela whose family included 1 Army Colonel and 1 Navy Captain- presenting Toastmasters International from Spain to the National University. Later, President Uribe of Columbia's personal secretary gave me a month tour of her country including FARC territory by car. Want me to tell you - 'the rest of the story' from what the Oracle said concerning your Mrs Obama? No. You don't. But hear Hitchens- it is not evolution towards Christianity.

Ann and I saw the movie "42" this past weekend. It was one of the best movies I've ever seen and if you haven't seen it, I recommend it highly. I couldn't help but note the similarities that occurred to me between Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball and Barack Obama doing the same for the presidency. When Branch Rickey brought Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers Jim Crow was still alive and well throughout our country. While we have eliminated Jim Crow laws for now and advanced civil rights by the actions of Martin Luther King, LBJ, and others, we have not made real the dreams of Dr. King of which he spoke during the March on Washington. Robinson experienced hatred and vitriol and the desire by many in baseball, players and fans, that he and Rickey fail in this attempt and that Robinson quit in disgrace. One might say that the same is true of our president as some in congress desired that he be a one term president, many Americans accused him of not being a "real" American and ...
So, why are we so loyal to a president who is not loyal to us? Kevin Johnson was pilloried for suggesting Obama has not been good for African Americans. But his question was a good one Gary Younge The Guardian, Sunday 5 May 2013 20.30 BST Jump to comments (295)Back when affirmative action was white, educational institutions were created for African Americans who were barred from admission elsewhere. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) became the breeding grounds for the "talented tenth" – the elite class groomed to lead black America. Towards the end of the last century HBCUs had produced 75% of black PhDs, 85% of black doctors and 80% of black federal judges. Among the most prestigious was Morehouse, in Atlanta, which counts Martin Luther King, Samuel Jackson and Spike Lee among its alumni. Later this month, Barack Obama will deliver the keynote address at Morehouse's graduation ceremony. Another invited speaker was Morehouse alumnus Kevin Johnson, a prominent Philadelphia p ...
Walla Walla University’s third annual Peacemaking Weekend took place on May 3-4, 2013 under the theme, “Guns or Roses.” It kicked off with the traditional Steel Band concert featuring the Walla Walla University Steel Band under the direction of Professor Brandon Beck. This noon program of music took place in the heart of downtown Walla Walla at the Land Title Plaza. In between the musical selections the gathered crowd listened to WWU students (Emily Muthersbaugh, Howie Heaton, Katie Wittlake, Amy Hellie, Heather Ruiz, and Rebecca Hanan) read selections on peace. These included their own original compositions, as well as excerpts from Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, and Barack Obama. The Saturday morning session featured a lecture on “Violence, Peace, and Self-Defense” by local retired attorney Dan Clark. Clark, a member of the Walla Walla Society of Friends (Quakers) is an active member of the Walla Walla University’s Peacemaking Committee, who nudges us forward in the peacemaking enterp ...
absolutely, i would've denounced Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Huey P Newton, Jay-Z, Oprah, Barack Obama, and Angela Davis for that
With all the history blacks have it took Barack Obama to incite some kind of ambition in us. So people like Stokely Carmichael, Booker T Washington, Martin Luther King, Condoleezza Rice, Shirley Chisholm, etc. just never existed. People who actually had to endure. President Obama isn't the beginning OR the end of our history and Black People act as if we didn't have a history before the election. Where was all this black pride before?
We all have equal brain. Some people chose to use theirs efficiently. In this class are the Wright brothers who invented aeroplane,Michael Faraday who invented electricity,Benjamin Franklin,Karl Lansteiner,Albert Einstein,Thomas Edison,Louis Pasteur,Robert Hooke,Antoine van Leuwenhook,Martin Luther King jnr,Barack Obama. . The list is endless. Others,however,chose to just live and breathe and leave their plates clean. Can't control these tears drumming down on my chest. Wake up and use your brain to influence the world today,or it would obey Jean Lanmark's theory of use and disuse! Plus XII once said,'God has no intention to set a limit to the effort of man to conqure space'. There's as yet well over 99% discoveries waiting patiently to be made.
It's me again Lord; I know that I am not worthy to ask YOU for anything, Heavenly Father in the powerful name of JESUS I pray that YOU will send down healings upon the sick and afflicted, feed those that are hungry and thirst after YOUR righteousness and shelter the homeless.

Arguably the best boxer of all time? Muhammad Ali. One of the richest women in the world? Oprah Winfrey. Highest paid actor in the world? Will Smith. Current best body in a singer? Beyonce.

One of the greatest men of peace? Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the bravest women of her time? Rosa Parks. Greatest home run hitter of all time? Hank Aaron (NO, Barry Bonds does NOT count!) One of the best presidents as history will judge: Barack Obama. Is there a pattern emerging here that scares the bible out of the right wings buttocks, maybe allowing their heads to breathe?

QotD: "You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea." -- Myrlie Evers-Williams, civil rights activist, author and educator Mrs. Evers-Williams worked for over three decades to seek justice for the murder of her civil rights activist husband Medgar Evers in 1963. She was also chairwoman of the NAACP, and published several books on topics related to civil rights and her husband’s legacy. On January 21, 2013, she delivered the invocation at the second inauguration of Barack Obama, making her the first woman and first layperson to do so.

Have you ever wondered how we got to the 44th President - Barack Obama. You need to study the lives of these men. Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, John Brown, William Lloyd Garrison, Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy. History can be very amusing !!!

Germany discriminates people with Jewish ancestors . I am an living example of that. Inga-Verena Barth Germany discriminates women. Germany discriminates handicapped people. Germany discriminates people with Christian belief. Germany spends more money on music of Richard Wagner than on music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. Germany still prefers people who have been linked to the NSDAP, Hitler and to the SED. German people do not like people as Martin Luther King otherwise they would give people like me a chance. German people do not like Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, Kofi Annan and Ban Ki Moon because they have no blue eyes and no fair hair.

At a poverty-reduction forum last week, Princeton professor Cornel West said he was “upset” after learning that Barack Obama was being sworn in on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Bible.
The Omega Letter Intelligence Digest   Vol: 136 Issue: 21 - Monday, January 21, 2013   Civil Disobedience and the Bible     Ever since the Obama government seized on the opportunity to use gun control to disarm law-abiding citizens, my inbox has been filled with questions about Civil Disobedience and whether or not Christians should engage in it.   It's an issue I knew I'd have to address head-on one day, but one I've avoided like a minefield, since no matter how I answer it, I will get hammered by the other side.   Today is Martin Luther King Day. Since Dr. Martin Luther King raised Civil Disobedience to the level of a mainstream political tactic, it seems as good a time as any to tackle Civil Disobedience and the Bible. It seems doubly appropriate, given that today is Barack Obama's public inauguration to his second term.   Before addressing what the Bible says about Civil Disobedience, I thought it particularly interesting that Barack Obama has claimed as his two champions  President Abraham Li ...
As I witnessed the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama today and as I thought of the significance of this monumental event happening January 21, 2013, the day set aside as a recognized holiday celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday, it became evident that President Obama’s Audacity of Hope and Dr. King’s dream immersed. These words spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are phenomenal. "There is something wrong with our world, something fundamentally and basically wrong. I don't think we have to look too far to see that. I'm sure that most of you would agree with me in making that assertion. We haven't learned how to be just and honest and kind and true and loving. And that is the basis of our problem. The real danger confronting civilization today is the atomic bomb which lies in the hearts and souls of all people, capable of exploding into the vilest of hate and into the most damaging selfishness - that's the atomic bomb that we've got to fear today." I have read much of Dr. King’s w ...

As we celebrate the day of Martin Luther King and the Inauguration of Barack Obama...Please remember the dream is still unfullfilled.We still lack as a people when it comes to safety in our community for our children.Economic growth of jobs in our communities.Education of our young adults on life skills.and sustaining moral values to live on.Yes we have make progress as a people; but the modification rules of Jim Crow and Willie Lynch are still embedded in society.Break this and :WE WILL OVERCOME! Amen!
Because of one "King," Martin Luther, the junior, an end was brought to 'national' civil injustices regarding African Americans. Not too much longer, we would see the result of prejudice splashed across our television screens in the life of another "King," known as Rodney. This 'personal' injustice resulted from nothing short of sin. Some would argue that the Bible is a book of oppression...a book that has caused more harm than good. Really? Should we keep that in mind today as President Barack Obama places his hand upon two stacked Bibles for his inauguration?- one to be Abraham Lincoln's and the second Martin Luther King's. There is power in that book! Make no mistake about it, we live in a fallen sin induced world...and though injustices happen on all levels, God has sent us the "King of King's," Jesus Christ, as His final answer! And He has left us His Word as our only hope, without which there is no moral standard or hope for eternal change. No book in all of history has done more for the rights of p ...
Congratulations to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and the citizens of the United States of America! Today is a day to celebrate our democracy and honor the hard work and determination of all who have contributed to our success and for us to recommit ourselves to keep working together to make the dream of our founding fathers and mothers, as well as Dr. Martin Luther King, come true. Show your support for the USA - raise your flag, sing the national anthem, wear read, white and blue...etc.

Virtues in Leadership with Sister Jenna Honoring the Presidential Inauguration Monday, January 21st, 2013 6:30PM-8:30PM Join Sister Jenna on Inauguration Day for this special event exploring virtues in leadership and how we can learn from great leaders like Martin Luther King, Barack Obama, Gandhi, Lincoln, Mother Theresa, and Brahma Baba, the founder of the Brahma Kumaris. What were some of the secrets behind leadership during times of chaos and adversity? We cannot predict the future and there will always be severe events beyond our control such as earthquakes, financial crisis, wars and other circumstances. Blaming others or situations is not a path to success. Consistently working towards one’s objectives in good and bad times is a method that great leaders have used to achieve tangible resu ...
Its fabulous Friday FB Fam and Friends, and a historic weekend. We commemorate the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the father of the dream for many of us, and celebrate the fulfillment of that dream somewhat in the second inauguration of Barack H. Obama. As I look at my walls in my office I see Frederick Douglass on my left asking the question "What to the Slave is the 4th of July?" Then I look forward at the framed phtograph of the columns of the Supreme Court, the body that breath life into the 13th,14th, 15th,18th and 19th Amendments and so many important cases and issues. But then I look to the left and see the black and white picture of Barack Obama with the caption "Change Can Happen!" And one's belief in the beauty of the nation and its ability to still get it right is confirmed!
Video on msnbc.com: President Barack Obama will unveil what one gun control activist told us are the most sweeping gun control measures proposed since the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. back in 1968. The Daily Rundown’s Chuck Todd reports.
Happy Monday and what a blessed weekend of Spring like weather in Virginia! Remember the phrase “swear on a stack of Bibles?” Well Barack Obama is going to do just that at his second inauguration on January 21, 2013 (Jan. 20 is on Sunday this year.) According to a story on Drudgereport.com, Obama will swear on 3 Bibles, the Robinson family Bible (Michele’s, the Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. Bibles) Drudge reports about the three Bibles that Michele Obama’s was a gift from her father Fraser Robinson III to his mother, her grandmother, LaVaughn Delores Robinson for Mother's Day in 1958. The King Bible was the civil rights leader's "traveling bible," which Martin Luther King used as he prepared for sermons and speeches on the road. Finally, the Lincoln Bible, on loan from the Library of Congress, was originally purchased by William Thomas Carroll, clerk of the Supreme Court, for use during President Lincoln's inauguration on March 4, 1861. The truth I wish that Barack Obama would comp .. ...
Barack Obama’s second term in the Oval Office will, like the first term, start with a do-over. History is repeating itself, as once again, two versions of the presidential oath will be administered — one in public to commemorate the event- and another, official oath, given in private to swear the president into office. In 2009, Justice Roberts made an error in administering the oath, misstating the word “faithfully,” so Barack Obama re-took the oath during a private ceremony the next day. Now, in 2012, President Obama will ironically take the oath behind closed doors again, this time before the public inauguration takes place. The change is due to a constitutional requirement that the president be sworn in by January 20. Because this falls on a Sunday, the ceremony will be held the next day, coinciding with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day observances.
Today has been a good day. Amen! The sermon text for worship today was taken from Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" In this sermon, one thought has stuck with me all day, "In this life, we may never become an Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein, Thurgood Marshall, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr, Rene' Descartes, Barack Obama, Isaac Newton, Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, or any influential, aspirational figure or professional. ("Man, who is born of woman, Is short-lived and full of turmoil." Job 14:1. We don't control death and disease, do we?) However, one reason that a man or woman can "rejoice in the Lord always" is that he or she CAN ALWAYS BECOME A CHRISTIAN! "...whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." Revelations 22:17. Being a Christian supersedes being a Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, Isaac Newton, Barack Obama, Rene' Descartes, Martin Luther King, Jr, Albert Einsten, and Oprah Winfrey. It's nothing wrong with wanting to and achieving things i ...
Issue: Token Black White Democrats accuse black Republicans of being tokens, while black Democrats accuse black Republicans for not being black enough. Fact 1: It was white Republicans that fought for civil rights (Lincoln was a Republican). Fact 2: It was white Democrats that fought against civil rights. (Democrat Senator Byrd from WV was a white, male, Grand Wizard of the KKK.) Fact 3: The first blacks in congress were Republicans (7 elected to the 41st and 42nd congress in the 1870s). Fact 4: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Fact 5: The majority of Obama's cabinet members are white males. The Progressive agenda is headed by white males stationed in Chicago and Las Vegas, so it would be apropos to conclude that both Valarie Jarrett and Barack Obama are token blacks in the White House. Let it be said that any black Democrat (including, but not limited to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, et al.) is a token black for the Democrat party, preferring to remain in the chains that bind th ...

I think that President Thabo Mbeki was a bit of a Prophet. Just like Martin Luther King, Barack Obama. You know those presidents or leaders whose foot-prints in life are remarkable.

A soldier proudly stood ready to defend his family and envisioned those unfortunates who tried to escape with their families through swamps in an effort to evade being caught by a brutal slave catcher. This young soldier paved the way for the likes of George Washington Carver so he could revitalize southern agricultural crops. In turn, George paved the way so Jesse Owens could fly like the wind and make his people proud. Next Hattie McDaniel would hold her head up high and raise an Oscar in her hand. Ella Fitzgerald would sing from her heart and soul and pave the way for Jackie Robinson who would effortlessly glide into home plate. Rosa Parks, one of America's most precious treasures, did nothing but sit. It was an unsurpassed act of courage, seldom seen before or after. Ruby Bridges learned to be brave from those who came before her and marched up those school steps and endured countless jeers and threats. And then came Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall and Barack Obama. And so it is now said th ...

Hobbs' Hump Day Hot Topic "Political Idealism vs. Political Realism" Like most Americans, prior to his keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, the only thing that I knew about Barack Obama was that he was a Democratic Senate candidate from Illinois who stood a chance of becoming the first black in the US Senate since Carol Mosley Braun represented their state a decade earlier. As I listened to his brilliant oratory that night, perhaps the greatest highlight---one that has been played time and again since---was his suggestion that "there are no red states or blue states---only the United States." Whenever I hear that line, it stirs my adrenaline much in the same way that hearing the late Whitney Houston's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" from the 1991 Super Bowl does. And in many respects, Obama's line ranks highly in the area of historical socio-political oratory, including Dr. Martin Luther King's dream that our society would eventually judge people not based on the color of th ...
via Elaine Giamona. Had to share. I couldn't have said it better myself. The first and foremost reason I support re-election of President Obama: He is brave and courageous. He knew well the road ahead of him when he decided to run for President. A black man in the White House? Give me a break! As a well-educated man, he and his wife must have had long discussions about what running or serving as President might bring to their lives and the lives of their children. The risks to be undertaken. They knew well that Presidents and politicians before who dared to "rock the boat" were killed. Were wiped off the face of this earth. Jack Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King to name a few. They knew that racial discrimination is still alive and well in our land of the free. They knew that their lives would be cracked open for all the world to view. They knew that they would be undertaking a very risky proposition. Barack Obama's very life could be at risk. And yet they stepped up to the plate. Not for the ...

A great man in Malcolm X, a great man was DR. Martin Luther King, Patrice lumumba and Kwame Nkrumah, the fighter in Muhammad Ali, but yet we follow the imagines of the 20,000 followers, the pictures of a 1,000 likes, the drug dealers, the football stars, the rappers. The wrong things we follow when a great leader we have in Barack Obama. In order to be a great leader you must first learn by following so choose wisely and occupy your vote!

One of the most difficult tasks for a human is to fight the bad without doing bad... Its really very easy to become intelligent, famous, rich or successful compared to becoming kind and calm when things get out of ur comfort zone. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Dalai Lama, Lech Wałęsa, Stephen Biko, Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela and may like them did learn this from an impossible kind of person. Go to 20th century ,look at the footsteps of every great personality who changed this world applying humanity basics and u'll always find marks of a "laathi" nearby. he was and will always be there, walking with u, if you have courage to be kind and will to resist the evil without being the same. perhaps the most impressive personality of last 1000 years and surely comparable to Siddhartha Gautam Buddha... happy birthday Mahatma Ghandi. ( and Barack Obama says he is inspired by Gandhi too :D)

He is a freedom fighter,an inspiration to Martin Luther King,John Lennon,Aung San Suu Kyi,Nelson Mandela,Albert Einstein,Desmond Tutu,Barack Obama,etc, the one who can say "My life is my message". Enjoy your freedom but do remember Bapu.

Slavery One of my friends just came from the USA and what he told me shocked me. He said he met some African-Americans who hated him because his ancestors in Africa are the ones who sold the African-Americans into slavery. This is unfair because all of us where not there. And what is more I feel God in His infinite wisdom has turned the presence of African-Americans into a blessing and have produced some of the greatest personalities in the world in all fields of human endeavor…I am thinking of late MJ, the greatest pop singer of all time, Muhammad Ali, Jimi Hendrix, Ophra, Michael Jordan, Martin Luther King, Barack Obama, the William sisters, TD Jakes, Tiger Woods, the list is endless. Proving that the black man given the right conditions can also excel beating the white man by far! This was God’s plan. If there were no African- Americans in the USA and all these were in Africa I don’t think they would have reached those heights. God usually turns our bad intentions into blessings. Just read the st ...
When people ask me why I like Pres. Barack Obama, this is what I say: I have lived through segregation and integration, the assassination of Pres. John Kennedy, the assassination of Robert Kennedy, the assassination of Martin Luther King, the Vietnam War, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis, and the shooting and murder of innocent student protesters on the campus of Kent State, and in addition to the carcinogenic influence of asbestos, lead, mercury and other compounds poison to the human body. The many years before Roe versus Wade. I've seen firsthand the extinction of marine life and its replacement was water contaminated with chemicals. Various species of animals becoming extinct. I will stop although there are many more examples that I wish I hadn't been aware of. President Obama has not been able to completely clean up the mess that George W. Bush left. But he is working on, and it will take probably at least four more years, most likely longer. This is why I am voting for a winner, Pres. Barac ...
I love the way God chooses his servant's: Paul Laurence Dunbar, Frederick Douglas, Malcolm X, but he chose Martin Luther King the Father of Time; Shirley Chilsom, Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, but God chose Barack Obama as President. Well deserving Servants!!
I am just part way through "The Cause" called 'The fight for American Liberalism from Franklin Delano Roosevelt to Barack Obama by Eric Alterman and Kevin Mattson. Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Roosevelt, Bobby Kennedy or Martin Luther King are pictured on the cover in case you look for it in the public library where I got it. I have just come to Gloria Steinem's rise to fame. I recall trying to read MS magazine but I just could not relate to it. The author says that Gloria Steinem was pro abortion and wanted to see it legalized because of all the women who had been damaged by back alley abortions. I knew right then she was traveling in circles I was not. I felt great ambition kept the career driven woman tied to having children when it fit in, and not being able to cope with any 'accidents.' And this is about when a tie between liberalism and abortion began which eventually affected the media so profoundly that it endorsed legalized abortion with the Supreme Court decision, undoubte ...
Don't fret. The meme that 'its a close race" is only believed by the Beltway and the media. Both groups NEED us to believe the horse race is close. It isn't. Matt Taibbi said months ago that the race is already over and its Obama by a huge margin. Nate Silver has Obama by 71%. Las Vegas odds have Obama by 65%. Romney was a zero when he got the nod because of a default of having the other candidates being so reactionary, even in this political climate, that he seemed moderate next to them. After Romney went through those brutal primaries with it's endless 'debates'. (read "reality programming by the media). he has no choice at all but to move to the extreme right and NO ONE is going to back that horse. Don't fret. This race is already over. It seems that all the King's horses and all the King's men, and all the riches in the world...can't convince the American electorate that they will be ruled by greed and hate. Barack Obama is a unique and singular man. He is the right guy placed in the right position at ...
Joseph had a dream!!Joseph was thrown into the Pit and Sold into slavery by his on Blood, but what they meant for evil God used to save the whole world at the time!! Africans Sold there own kind to the Europeans for gold. This country was build on that same free labor.Abraham Lincoln sign the Emancipation Proclamation January 1, 1863. Slavery ended two years later. 100 years later Dr Martin Luther King had a dream. Today we have Barack Obama as President. What I'm saying is it all started with a Dream!! What is your DREAM?
"Secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering into the public square. Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King--indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history--were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause. So to say that men and women should not inject their 'personal morality' into Public Policy debates is a practical absurdity. Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Jude-Christian tradition." --Barack Obama, 2006
•1968 - Martin Luther King, Jr., is assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. (April 4). •1972 - The infamous Tuskegee Syphilis experiment ends. Begun in 1932, the U.S. Public Health Service's 40-year experiment on 399 black men in the late stages of syphilis has been described as an experiment that "used human beings as laboratory animals in a long and inefficient study of how long it takes syphilis to kill someone." •1992 - The first race riots in decades erupt in south-central Los Angeles after a jury acquits four white police officers for the videotaped beating of African-American Rodney King (April 29). •2008 - Sen.

Ed Coet TO THE EDITOR -- (ARE YOU A RACIST): Are you a racist? Apparently you are if you (1) are opposed to Barack Obama, (2) identify with the Tea Party movement, (3) think that George Zimmerman (who killed Trevon Martin) deserves his day in court before he is convicted, and (4) if you value your second amendment rights. I recently learned from a third party that a close African-American friend of mine (at least I thought he was) decided he no longer wanted to have anything to do with me. Apparently he called me a “tea bagging racist” behind my back. I was shocked and hurt to learn that he came to that conclusion for the four aforementioned reasons. What hurts most is that I thought that he knew me. You see, he knew that I was a long time admirer of Condi Rice and Colin Powell. He knew that Martin Luther King Jr. was one of my favorite heroes; He knew that my first pick for president in 2012 was Herman Cain and he knows my favorite choice for VP is Congressman Alien West. All of them are African–Am ...
The Coalition of African American Pastors announced Tuesday that it does not agree with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s decision to endorse the legalization of same-sex marriage CAAP launched a petition last week to oppose broadening the legal definition of marriage. The coalition includes leaders of black churches and veteran civil rights leaders who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. The NAACP voted to endorse same-sex marriage Saturday, and NAACP President Benjamin Jealous publicly endorsed *** marriage Monday. “The NAACP has abandoned its historic responsibility to speak for and safeguard the Civil Rights Movement,” CAAP founder and President William Owens said Tuesday. “We who marched with Rev. King did not march one inch or one mile to promote same-sex marriage.” Jealous called *** marriage a civil right, and said he believes “it is the responsibility, the history of the NAACP to speak up on the civil rights issues of our times.” CAAP says it believes ...

More Crapola from Barry!JFK did not pay Barack Obama Jr.’s claim that John F. Kennedy brought his father to the United States to study was made March 4, 2007, in a speech Obama delivered from the pulpit of the historic Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church in Selma, Alabama. Obama declared he owed his very existence to Selma, according to a transcript of the speech and a video clip posted on YouTube.com. A few minutes into the speech, Obama began discussing the protests in Selma, Ala., and Birmingham, Ala., that were instrumental to Martin Luther King building the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. He invented some dialogue in which he mused, “It worried the folks in the White House who said, ‘You know, we’re battling communism. How are we going to win hearts and minds all across the world if right here in our own country, John, we’re not observing the ideals set forth in our Constitution? We might be accused of being hypocrites.” Obama continued: “This young man named Barack Obama got one of those ti ...

Black People in America have always been divided and fought each other. Whether it's house *** against field *** W.E.B. Du Bois against Booker T.

On this day let it be known, I have never killed an Indian, nor have I stolen their Land. I have never been to Africa, nor have I owned a slave. I have never riden on a bus with Rosa Park's, nor have I taken her seat. I like Martin Luther King was born with a Dream and yes, I to mourned his loss. I am just an American working to support, defend & protect my Country and it's Freedom's. There is indeed a plague in this Nation and it is being spread from the Top Down.
