WHAT IS HE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH?
by Sharon Rondeau
Sununu had served as chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party during the 2012 presidential campaign.
When O’Reilly asked Powell if he believed Sununu was a racist, Powell said he did not, but he thought the “choice of words” Sununu used was inappropriate. Powell claimed that Sununu’s comment would have a negative impact on minorities and discourage them from joining the Republican Party.
In late October, Sununu had suggested that Powell had supported Obama in both of his bids for the presidency because Obama is “black.” Obama was reportedly the son of a white mother and black father. One researcher has stated that that is the case, but not to the people Obama has claimed as his parents.
On July 17, 2012, the same day on which Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse announced in a press conference that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is “definitely fraudulent,” Sununu told Fox News that Obama “grew up in Indonesia” to support his statement that Obama had “no idea how the American system functions.” The narrative Sununu put forth agrees with the aforementioned researcher’s contentions that Obama spent more time in Indonesia than his public life story suggests. At the time, Sununu said:
…when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.
The left-wing website Think Progress contends that Sununu’s comments that Obama “doesn’t know how to be an American” were “racist.” The “racist” claim has been used widely against anyone opposing Obama’s policies and agenda.
Powell, who said he “became a Republican in 1995” and has served under prior Republican presidents, described Obama as “a transformational figure” in 2008 and again supported him in 2012. Powell has been contending publicly on talk shows this month that the Republican Party “seems to look down on minorities.”
“In the last several years, I have been troubled by the right shift of the Republican Party too far to the right…so in 2008, I found that as an American, the best choice for America at that and continuing in 2012, was Senator Obama and now President Obama…”
O’Reilly responded by citing statistics of high unemployment among minorities. “Why do you only see me as an African-American, Bill?” Powell rejoined. “The economic situation in the country has improved, but not enough,” Powell said. He claimed that the economy has “stabilized” and that “ultimately, those numbers…will be fixed by an economy…that’s spread out more.”
O’Reilly disagreed, contending that the economic “recovery” has not been significant. He then said that cultural issues have affected America’s ranking in the world, including in education. Powell then revealed that his wife runs a program called “America’s Promise Alliance” for young children, beginning with “infants,” aimed at “educating” children for leadership positions.
Powell claimed that minorities will be the majority in the United States “in one more generation” and decried states which passed laws requiring positive voter identification. O’Reilly then asked Powell incredulously, “Do you object to showing an identification card when you vote?” to which Powell claimed that doing so could “disenfranchise” certain voters. Powell suggested that the Republican Party embrace “everybody to vote.” Powell believes that proof of identity should be provided when a person registers to vote rather than at the polls.
Powell said he has seen no credible report that voter fraud is a problem in the country. He seemed offended that Sununu had used the word “lazy” to describe Obama following the first 2012 presidential debate and then referred to Sununu’s comments of July 17, 2012. “What is that supposed to mean to somebody?” Powell asked of Sununu’s statement that Obama “was not a real American.” “I would never call John a racist…but you have to understand the impact this has on minorities throughout our country, and if you want to appeal to these people,…you have to avoid this kind of language.”
Powell then enumerated the racial composition of the new Congress. O’Reilly then asked whether making Sununu’s comment a “racial” issue was advisable. Powell insisted that the Republican Party contains a “vein of intolerance” and that the party should become “more inclusive.”
Just before the 2008 election, Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America. Since he took office, he has signed bills and executive orders to restrict the banking industry; bail out certain automobile manufacturers; socialize the nation’s health care system and force religious organizations to provide services against their conscience; allow young illegal aliens to remain in the country, over which ten ICE agents have filed a federal lawsuit which is proceeding; ordered his own records sealed from public scrutiny; and reportedly presented two fraudulent birth certificates to the public in an attempt to prove he was born in Hawaii.
Powell has called questions about Obama’s documentation “birther nonsense.” Obama is reportedly using a Social Security number originating in Connecticut which was not assigned to him. His Selective Service registration form has also been declared a forgery.
After endorsing Obama twice, Powell claims he is “still a Republican.” CBS News, which recently demonstrated in an interview with Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton its clear support of the regime, reported that Powell “regularly” speaks with Obama.
Is Powell planning a run for the presidency himself? Does he have a hidden agenda? If the Republican Party is racist, why does Powell “still consider” himself a member? Talk show host Laura Ingraham called Powell a “weapon of mass destruction” being used against Republicans.
In his article masquerading as news, MSNBC writer Morgan Whitaker said that during the campaign, Mitt Romney “nearly stepped over the line when he joked that no one had ever asked to see his [Obama’s] birth certificate.”
Why would that have been “stepping over the line?”
In 2009, communications director for the Obama presidential campaign Anita Dunn said that the campaign had “controlled the media,” a strategy reportedly initiated by former senior adviser David Plouffe, who is now an unofficial adviser to Obama.
The media, Powell, outspoken Obama supporters and “conservative” talk radio hosts have ridiculed anyone who has questioned Obama’s credentials and eligibility to serve, despite the Maricopa County law enforcement investigation which declared his documentation fraudulent. Powell has been invited to travel all-expenses-paid to Arizona to view evidence in the possession of the Cold Case Posse not yet been made public which lead investigator Michael Zullo claims would convince “the strongest skeptic” of the inauthenticity of Obama’s birth certificate.
During the interview, Powell told O’Reilly that he is “pro-choice.” With regard to government spending, Powell said that Congress bears most of the blame for creating a trillions-dollar deficit. O’Reilly told Powell that “the scuttlebutt” in Washington is that Republicans are angry with Powell for “making them look bad” after no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq during the George W. Bush administration. He concluded the interview by telling O’Reilly that he didn’t “have to answer such idiotic questions.”
Powell grew up in Harlem, where Malcolm X reportedly “had his most productive years” before being assassinated in 1965. Sonia Sotomayor, who was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by Obama, also was raised in the South Bronx.
So was Dr. Fred Newman, who is allegedly Obama’s uncle and political mentor. Obama has sung at the Apollo Theater, which Malcolm X frequently visited in his later years prior to his tragic early death at the age of 39. The theater was purchased and renovated by the late Percy Sutton, who was Malcolm’s attorney and called Obama “brilliant” in a recommendation letter to Harvard University for Obama.
And who was the “friend” who introduced Sutton to Obama? Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, an “adviser to one of the world’s richest men” and preacher of violence against white people. Al-Mansour was a founder of the Black Panther Party.
Has Bill O’Reilly investigated these connections to Obama? Has Powell?
Is Obama’s father Malcolm X?
