    Is President Obama a Leader ?

    in Politics

    Le­on Pan­etta ar­gued that for all of Barack Obama’s strengths, he is miss­ing an es­sen­tial in­gredi­ent of lead­er­ship. He lacks “fire,” wrote Obama’s former CIA dir­ect­or and Pentagon chief. “The pres­id­ent re­lies on the lo­gic of a law pro­fess­or rather than the pas­sion of a lead­er.”Obama has proved Pan­etta right again and again dur­ing his pres­id­ency, but nev­er more dan­ger­ously so than with his shoulder-shrug ap­proach to IS­IS. Obama called it a “J.V. team” be­fore it star­ted be­head­ing Amer­ic­ans. He said it was “con­tained” be­fore it at­tacked Par­is. Now he’s call­ing it “a bunch of killers with good so­cial me­dia.”Ron Fournier


    President Obama is tired of all the critics who say his strategy to destroy Islamic State isn't working."The only thing that they're doing is talking as if they're tough," he complained last week. "If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, [they should] present a specific plan."What the rest of us need, Obama counseled, is more patience. "It's going to take time".Obama was right on one count: ?LATimes

    Will President Obama Give Reparations To African Americans By Executive Order?

    in Women

    After the Civil War, President Lincoln signed an Executive Order to give land to the newly freed African Americans as reparations for their enslavement. Unfortunately, he was assassinated shortly thereafter and his successor, President Johnson, denied this order. From that time until today,African Americans have been seeking reparations in the form of some kind of compensatory damages from slavery. The Japanese receivied reparations for the damages done from bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Jews received reparations for the holocaust. Our guest today, young Tom O'Donnell, is presenting the historical case he and his family has been pushing, to urge President Obama to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Abraham Lincoln, and, before he leaves office, issue reparations in the form of land to African American decendant of slaves. Can the President to this? Will he do it if the demand from American citizens is great enough? Will enough African Americans believe it can happen?

    1DimitriRadio: President Obama just endorsed Donald Trump!!

    in News

    Dimitri’s Opening Monologue (from the LifePedigree.com studio)


    President Obama just endorsed Donald Trump. He gave The Donald the presidential seal-of-approval (in the eyes of Republican primary voters). And Trump being Trump, he capitalized immediately on Obama’s vacuous vote of nonconfidence


    First Segment


    The military's war burn pits are this generation’s Agent Orange scandal. My very special guest Joe Hickman wrote The Burn Pits to disclose the horrible indifference the US government had for the welfare of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. These acres and acres of massive, unregulated trash-dump fires were so toxic that many of our vets are suffering horrible respiratory illnesses, and untimely deaths. And that might include the son of Vice President Joe Biden.


    The military’s poisonous burn pits are a hellish indictment of the government that these brave men and women volunteered to serve. Maybe, someday, the mainstream media will cover this outrage. Until then, at least you can learn about it from my guest. And yes, he names the two, very high-profile government culprits responsible for this war atrocity

    Has President Obama Purposely Ignored The African American Community?

    in Women

    President Obama has done an outstanding job while in office, addressing the needs of immigrants, the LGBT comunity, the handicaped. But what has been done to address the crisis of violence against black people? Author Michael Eric Dyson, in his book The Black Presidency, makes some critical observations about how America's first black President has seemingly avoided appearing "too black." Many have observed that while President Obama gives praise and encouragement in his speeches to other groups, his tone when speaking to blacks has been one of scolding and reprimands. Is President Obama "talking down" to blacks? Is he purposely ignoring please of black leaders to come to his hoe town Chicago and address the violence? He came to talk to the police at a gathering last year, careful not to sound too disapproving despite the reports showing the racial bias within the police stops and arrests. Shootings continue to happen at epidemic proportions. The President has visited places where whites have been the victims of tragic shootings, but never went to south Carolina where church members were slaughtered by white supremist Dillon Roof, and has yet to come back to his hometown of Chicago, despite the ongoing killings every day. Is President Barack Obama purposely ignoring the African American community?

    President Obama Address to the Cuba People

    in Politics

    Before I begin, please indulge me.  I want to comment on the terrorist attacks that have taken place in Brussels.  The thoughts and the prayers of the American people are with the people of Belgium.  We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people.  We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally, Belgium, in bringing to justice those who are responsible.  And this is yet another reminder that the world must unite, we must be together, regardless of nationality, or race, or faith, in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.  We can -- and will -- defeat those who threaten the safety and security of people all around the world.“Cultivo una rosa blanca.”  (Applause.)  In his most famous poem, Jose Marti made this offering of friendship and peace to both his friend and his enemy.  Today, as the President of the United States of America, I offer the Cuban people el saludo de paz President Obama

    President Obama and American Muslims

    in Politics

    "We have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths, the mosque outside of Baltimore, received threats twice in the past year. When any religious group is targeted, we all have a responsibility to speak up.Think of your own church or synagogue or temple, and a mosque like this will be very familiar,Our television shows should have some Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security" President Obama
