B. Obama – 1990

I cropped this from a group photo that was in the NY Times that I had a long time ago. It showed signs of photo-shopping especially in the nose area for Obama.   Enlarged, you can see his left nostril is distorted.  There is a line through the middle of his face.  He is  also larger than the people around him in the group photo.  Doesn’t he appear to be standing when others are sitting?  Notice the size of his head in comparison to others.   Both photos were lightened to see their faces. I haven’t found the group photo yet, but will add it.

Below is a student profile page from an issue of Harvard’s Law Review.

Did Barack Obama, the person sitting in our House,  really attend law school at Harvard?   Is he the same person that is in these photos?   If he did, why would they have to doctor the photos?  How does the shape of his face change from a very  elongated one to a shorter chubbier one?   The ever morphing Obama!

One of our WTPOTUS readers, Ray, provided a  list of names of people in the Harvard Law Review Board of Editors photo above.  If you want to research SURNAMES and others who share them, please go to the WTPOTUS Research  Blog.  A duplicate post will be there.   But if you have concrete links between these specific people and Barry’s tangled network, feel free to add to comments here.   If you have  insight into who they are and what they’ve done since Harvard Law, put it on this thread.”

    Obama Assigned Reading: Bell Says Whites Might Enslave Blacks
    March 9

    Back when Barack Obama was a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, he assigned Derrick Bell’s readings in class. In particular, he assigned the introduction to Bell’s book, Faces at the Bottom of the Well. Bell’s book was highly controversial, and for good reason: it contains some of the most inflammatory racial material in the critical race theory canon. And the introduction is chock-full of it. Open your hearts and minds to the words of Derrick Bell:

    Slavery is, as an example of what white America has done, a constant reminder of what white America might do.

    Or this:

    Black people will never gain full equality in this country. Even those herculean efforts we hail as successful will produce no more than temporary “peaks of progress,” short-lived victories that slide into irrelevance as racial patterns adapt in ways that maintain white dominance. This is a hard-to-accept fact that all history verifies.

    Or this:

    In similar fashion, African Americans must confront must confront and conquer the otherwise deadening reality of our permanent subordinate status.

    Why would Barack Obama assign this inflammatory racial nonsense to his students? Will anyone in the mainstream media ask him about it? Will anyone in the White House press corps ask Obama about his association with Derrick Bell? Don’t count on it.

    H/T Aaron Klein.

    • How racist is that first quote? What “white America” has done and might do. The VAST MAJORITY OF “WHITE AMERICA” POST-DATES SLAVERY. MOST “white” Americans are descended from people who were NOT SLAVE OWNERS. Who had nothing to do with slavery because their ancestors came after it was abolished. Who are descended from “white” people who were abolitionists who caused slavery to be abolished. Haters gonna hate. It’s all they are–haters.

      Wouldn’t you love to go back in time and hear the discussions going on in those classes between Barry and his “students”? Will not ONE OF THEM come forward to tell the truth about this man? How is it that only now, we’re hearing about the reading assignments he handed out? Why is the syllabus only now being revealed, four years later?

    • Bell: Farrakhan ‘A Great Hero For The People’

      Obama: “Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell.”

      In a 1992 MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour Broadcast Professor Derrick Bell praises radical, anti-semite Louis Farrakhan.

      http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/03/09/Bell%20Louis%20Farrakhan%20is%20A%20Great%20Hero%20For%20The%20People

      • OMG. It figures that Bell would love Farrakhan. Unbelievable. How many radicals does it take before they admit that Barry is the most radical potus in history? One who hates rather than loves America? IF he loves America, then why hang with so many who don’t?

        • Birds of a feather flock together. I guess the elites think that most Americans are too stupid to figure it all out, that they have no common sense, that they need someone to tell them how to tie their shoes, what to eat, when to go to the potty, etc.

    • When did Obama ever diss Farrakhan? He lived just around the corner from Obama in Hyde Park. We’ve heard Farrakhan be angry at Obama for participating in the bombing of Libya and taking out Ghadaffi. Has Obama distanced himself “for show” from Farrakhan only while in the WH? Similar to how he tossed Rev. Wright under the bus? Is it just an act because he knows most people would immediately see him for what he is, a racist radical? Rev. Wright and Farrakhan are very close in their radical, hateful, racist thinking and speaking. They promote hatred and division.

  3. And there I was, thinking, all this time, I’ll bet no one has ever done any real research on this topic. Silly me.

    Paper Abstract
    545. Joni Hersch,

    Skin Tone Effects among African Americans: Perceptions and Reality, 2/2006; subsequently published in American Economic Review Papers and Proceedings, Vol. 96, No. 2, May 2006, 251-255.

    Abstract : It is commonly assumed that lighter skinned African Americans receive preferential treatment over darker skinned counterparts. Using individual data from three sources, this paper examines the influence of skin tone on education and on wages. Lighter skin tone has a consistent positive impact on educational attainment but has a less consistent influence on wages. Possible mechanisms by which skin tone differences might influence economic outcomes are investigated, including measurement error, perceived attractiveness, access to integrated schools or work groups, perceived discrimination, and genetic differences. The perception that there is differential treatment on the basis of skin tone is more pronounced than the observed disparities.

    • I’d still like to know why that gal next to him has such a huge neck!

      • That was not a very flattering photo of the young lady, were it? :)

        A photo of SAD in that video got me to thinking about YA-438, which lead me full circle back to here.
        The Magnificent Creation .. Embarakonic Stem Cell

        It’s a small world after all. I didn’t see any comments from you. How long have you been….

        Woa, talk about not seeing the forest for the trees, I just found the RECENT COMMENTS BAR. That is going to be handy. Duh

      • And man hands, too.

    • The GUY is a feminist law professor?

    • Nice list they have of the Feminist Law Professors at each of the universities they track. (Ray’s first URL)

      The above image of the editorial board of volume 104 of the Harvard Law Review, which appeared in the January 28, 2007, issue of the New York Times, became part of the video introducing Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on August 28, 2008:

      I was seated two places to the right of Barack Obama that day in 1991. [Who is it?] The Harvard Law Review posts every editorial board’s picture on its walls. It has always been enough — a source of pride, really — to appear in that picture and to know that it hangs somewhere in Gannett House, home to the Review. The portrait of us editors from volume 104 has now become part of the political iconography of Barack Obama and the 2008 presidential campaign.

      Yes, you meet remarkable people during law school. Students, take note.

      • Oh barf..but some photos I don’t remember seeing.
        Uploaded by Politicstv on Aug 28, 2008

        • I can’t keep up! I finally catch up and then go do something and come back and there’s tons more to read and watch. Arghh!

          • Well, yep Soros, it’s anywhere you want to look for it. Soros, Soros, Soros.

          • miri, at around the 6;30 mark in this video….stop it at each second…..where is the family in this video. Is that an Indonesian child with Barack or a black child. ? But mainly, Now Notice the shelves in the background and the stuff on the shelves. LOOK FAMILIAR at all? Think real hard Tell me what you think.

        • Woa, save that. That is the first time that almost all the way thru this video, he looks unbelievably like Mark Ndesandjo, even expressions, mouth and eye gestures. Uncanny. Could somebody do this video over with O. with a doo-rag on his head lilke Mark always wears. The top of their head of course and the furrows in their brow has always had similarities to me. If they aren’t brothers their cousins. But B. Sr. is not the father.

        • The Claire witch!

        • Didn’t that tall tale about Barry and Gramps seeing astronauts splash down get debunked, too? And right after that, he talks about his grandfather having a “big imagination!” I bet Granny would be quite happy on her fixed income today, especially if she could see what kind of interest she’d be earning on her half million in savings. ZILCH!

          This is definitely gag-worthy. I’d advise turning the sound down or off.

        • The one link says Chen’s on the far left and “Cohen” is on the far right. I thought that was Toker! What’s the deal? I do think Chen is supposed to be a feminist lawyer because the email address at the top of the post includes “chen” in it. Very odd. Are the names listed under the group photo mixed up so we can’t tell who’s who? They do look like they’re listed by rows.

    • Great catch Papoose.

    • That’s a goldmine Papoose. I counted 27, but I could be off a couple. I guess they have a reunion on a daily basis! Those that think alike, stink alike. Let’s assume they all have pals located in all the courts across the nation too. Can’t imagine why lawsuits are having a problem getting seen or heard! This is worse than the SOS project. Didn’t these lawyers have better jobs before going into government work? Some of these don’t appear to be updated, i.e., Elena Kagan to the Supreme Ct.

      Class of ‘91 members Cassandra Q. Butts and Norman Eisen are serving as deputy counsels to the president.

      Their classmate Michael B.G. Froman is a deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for international economic security affairs.

      David Kris, also ‘91, has been picked to head the National Security Division at the Department of Justice. And Thomas J. Perrelli, ‘91, has been nominated to be associate attorney general.

      The 1991 graduates are just part of what the Harvard Law Record has called the “avalanche” of Harvard law alumni who have joined or are soon to join the Obama administration.

      The best-known member of this group is Michelle Obama, the First Lady, and a 1988 Harvard Law graduate.

      Daniel J. Meltzer, ‘75, and a professor at the law school during Obama’s time there, is the president’s principal deputy counsel.

      Michael J. Gottlieb and Danielle Gray, 2003 graduates, are associate counsels to the president. Blake Roberts, Class of 2006, will be a deputy associate counsel.

      *****Samantha Power, ‘99, is serving on the National Security Council. She won the Pulitzer Prize for general non-fiction in 2003 for A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide. Power had been a professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, as well as an adviser (sometimes controversial) to the Obama presidential campaign.

      Todd Stern, ‘75, is the special envoy for climate change.

      And Jocelyn Frye, ‘88, a law school classmate and friend of Michelle Obama, is serving as director of policy and projects for the First Lady and as a deputy assistant to the president for domestic policy.

      Obama has nominated Elena Kagan, Harvard Law ‘86, to be the U.S. solicitor general. Kagan was dean of the law school. David W. Ogden, ‘81, has been nominated to be deputy attorney general.

      One Harvard Law School graduate and 1991 alum not working at the White House is Bradford A. Berenson, a Republican and a former associate White House Council in the George W. Bush administration.While at Harvard, Obama and Berenson worked together at the Harvard Law Review, Obama serving as president, Berenson as Supreme Court Editor. According to Berenson, Obama may have learned how to mediate competing factions while running a Law Review staff that was divided not only by politics but also by legal philosophies.

      “You know who the people are who, despite their politics, can reach across and be friendly to and make friends with folks who have different views,” Berenson told Frontline on PBS last year. “And Barack very much fell into the latter category.” Obama will probably feel right at home at cabinet meetings, as the room will be full of lawyers:

      There’s Vice President Joe Biden (Syracuse Law), Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. (Columbia University), Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack (Albany), Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (University of Virginia), Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar (Michigan) and Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton (Yale University).

      Gary Locke, the nominee to be secretary of commerce, graduated from Boston University Law School.

    • This gets stranger by thte minute, papoose. I was actually at http://freeresearchrepository.blogspot.com/ for quite some time when I came back here and saw your find. Now I see that everything links back to muckety. I was actually trying to research Sam Sewell. Seems they quit updating this some time ago. Great stuff, though.

      Aristotle The Hun from “The Steady Drip” formed a PATRIOT’S research team in November of 2008. This blog is the repository of raw research from that team.

      • I found a treasure trove last night, Ray. but there is so much muck that I can’t backtrack. just looking at Genachowski.

        I think we need a 1% thread. just because DC is married to the media brokers. No wonder there is a blackout. For instance, Campbell Brown is married to Dan Senor, like Jay Carney is married to Claire Shipman, etc.

        we can identify the One Percenters for the Occupoopers in an snap. They are all dining at the White House. In fact, I think they are at the very least 2%ers…

        • I am really getting a sick feeling in my gut when I think of about this. I know that HLS used to produce some HONEST lawyers, because my wifes dad was one of them. It is so sad to see the culture in most all of our universities so screwed up. Kagan will be doing the same thing to the United States of America through the SCOTUS what she was doing by proxy as the Dean of Harvard Law.

          It sure gets depressing though, when one looks at the multitude of different networks these night crawlers weaved together. And it just boggles the mind when one starts scratching around, the amount of things that come up. For instance, I was researching one of these names last night and I came up with another Harvard prof that shared the same last name, I think she died back in 2000 or so. Her other half was also a prof there. He claims to have trained over 3,000 organizers for Obamas 2008 campaigh. Now tonight I see a thread over at CW that is taking about Obama pulling six or eight heavy lift transports out of service to fly his crap around for this campaigh. It just does not quit

          I will not give up, I will not give up, I will not….. There’s no place like… Where the hell are we Toto? :)

          • And if the WND take on that new law is correct, NOBODY will be able to stand up to dispute Barry any place he speaks before the election. Anywhere he is will be a “restricted building” and anybody who isn’t “invited” will be an “unauthorized person” in the “restricted” space. If they interfere, disrupt, or block access, they can be arrested and charged under this new UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW. We’ll still see Code Pink shouting and disrupting at events, but any Tea Partier who challenges Barry, that’s if they can even get into his (or Michelle’s!) Kabuki theatre events, will be arrested. You can count on it. That way, NOBODY will be seen opposing him or his policies. All anybody will see on the evening news is crowds of (astroturfed, carefully selected) adoring fans. There will be NO sound bites to disturb the carefully crafted image they’re going to project to LIE to the American People and claim, like they lie with polls, that his popularity is rising. This is what Putin does, in Russia. That’s what this new “law” will allow. It’s a travesty. Every representative who voted for this, if WND’s interpretation is correct, deserves to be tossed from office. Are they SO STUPID that they don’t see they’re helping him and hurting themselves and, worse, our REPUBLIC? This is a free country, not a dictatorship. Or is it?

          • The most sickening part of this is that CRT that requires the LAW, CULTURE, and POLITICS of the USA to be transformed. They IGNORE the Constitution although they’re supposed to be experts in Constitutional LAW.

      • Added to links on sidebar under Free Research. Thanks Ray.
        We were all at another blog doing the same thing prior to that one being formed. Our extensive research was lost when the blog closed quickly, unexpectedly and turned private. Only that person knows why it was done.

        You guys and gals are hot!

        • I was shocked when that “person” did that. I always checked in over there, but yikes, I don’t want to buy the place. I wish’m well, but I don’t think it is going to work.

      • yes, Ray, I noticed that too. Last night my muckety’s were as of March 2009. Today, they are gone!

  10. Ray, My pc won’t let me open this for some reason. Will you cut and paste please ?

    • Renee, this thing is about 25 pages. I can put it in a doc and email it. Here is the first couple of pages. I guess this has been going on for a while. They seem to have the right legal team on it, and I wish them well. We have a couple of condos on the big island that they can have. At this point, I am about ready to throw in my favorite lawyer. :)

      PREPARED STATEMENT OF H. CHRISTOPHER BARTOLOMUCCI
      HOGAN & HARTSON L.L.P.
      Before the COMMITTEE ON INDIAN AFFAIRS of the UNITED STATES SENATE
      on S. 1011, “THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN GOVERNMENT REORGANIZATION ACT OF 2009”
      AUGUST 6, 2009

      Chairman Dorgan, Vice Chairman Barrasso, and distinguished Members of the Committee:

      Thank you for the invitation to testify on S. 1011, “the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2009.” It is indeed an honor to testify before this distinguished body. My testimony will focus upon the legal issue of Congress’ constitutional authority to enact this legislation.

      The principal legal question presented by S. 1011 is whether
      Congress has the power to treat Native Hawaiians the same way it
      treats this country’s other indigenous groups, i.e., American Indians and Native Alaskans. Constitutional text, Supreme Court precedent, and historical events provide the answer: Congress’ broad power inregard to Indian tribes allows Congress to recognize Native Hawaiians as having the same sovereign status as other Native Americans.

      S. 1011 would establish a process by which Native Hawaiians would reconstitute their indigenous government. Before Hawaii became a State, the Kingdom of Hawaii was a sovereign nation recognized as such by the United States. In 1893, American officials and the U.S. military aided the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy.

      2 -A century later, in 1993, Congress formally apologized to the Hawaiian people for the U.S. involvement in this regime change. See Apology Resolution, Pub. L. No. 103-150, 107 Stat. 1510 (1993); see also Hawaii v. Office of Hawaiian Affairs, 129 S. Ct. 1436, 1439 (2009) (noting that Congress “pass[ed] a joint resolution to apologize for the role that the United States played in overthrowing the Hawaiian monarchy in the late 19th century”). Congress has ample authority to assist Native Hawaiians in their
      effort to reorganize their governing entity. Congress’ broadest
      constitutional power — the power to regulate commerce—specifically encompasses the power to regulate commerce “with the Indian tribes.” U.S. Const., art. I, § 8, cl. 3. Based upon the Indian Commerce Clause and other constitutional provisions, see, e.g., Treaty Clause, art. II, § 2,cl. 2, the Supreme Court has recognized Congress’ plenary power to legislate regarding Indian affairs. As the Supreme Court stated in the case of United States v. Lara, 541 U.S. 193 (2004), “the Constitution grants Congress broad general powers to legislate in respect to Indian tribes, powers that we have consistently described as ‘plenary and exclusive.’ ” Id. at 200.

      3 -Congress has previously used that power to restore lost tribal sovereignty. In 1954, Congress terminated the sovereignty of the Menominee Indian tribe in Wisconsin, ended the government-to- government relationship with the tribe, and closed its membership roll. See Menominee Indian Termination Act, 25 U.S.C. §§ 891-902. Nearly two decades later, in 1973, Congress reversed course and enacted the Menominee Restoration Act, 25 U.S.C. §§ 903-903f, which restored sovereignty to the Menominee, reinstated the tribe’s federal rights and federal recognition, and reopened its membership roll. Pointing to the Menominee Restoration Act, the Supreme Court in Lara affirmed that the Constitution authorizes Congress to enact legislation “recogniz[ing] * * * the existence of individual tribes” and “restor[ing] previously extinguished tribal status.” Lara, 541 U.S. at 203.

      S. 1011 is patterned after the Menominee Restoration Act and would do for Native Hawaiians what Congress did for the Menominee. Courts have approved of the sovereignty restoration process enacted in the Menominee Restoration Act. See Lara, 541 U.S. at 203 (citing the Menominee Restoration Act as an example where Congress “has restored previously extinguished tribal status — by re-recognizing a

      4 -Tribe whose tribal existence it previously had terminated”); United States v. Long, 324 F.3d 475, 483 (7th Cir. 2003) concluding that Congress had the power to “restor[e] to the Menominee the inherent sovereign power that it took from them in 1954”) (opinion of Wood, J., joined by Posner & Easterbrook, JJ.), cert. denied, 540 U.S. 822 (2003).

      S. 1011 does not run afoul the Supreme Court’s decision in Rice v.
      Cayetano, 528 U.S. 495 (2000). In Rice, the Court ruled that the State of Hawaii could not limit the right to vote in a state election to Native Hawaiians. But Rice did not address whether Congress may treat Native Hawaiians as it does other Native Americans. Indeed, the Court in Rice expressly declined to address whether “native Hawaiians have a status like that of Indians in organized tribes” and “whether Congress may treat the Native Hawaiians as it does the Indian tribes.” Id. at 518.

      Some opponents of the legislation have pointed to Rice in support
      of an argument that the bill violates equal protection principles. But the Supreme Court has long held that congressional legislation dealing with sovereign indigenous groups is governmental, not racial, in character and hence is neither discrimination nor unconstitutional. As the Supreme Court explained in a 1977 case:

      5 The decisions of this Court leave no doubt that federal legislation with respect to Indian tribes, although relating to Indians as such, is not based upon impermissible racial classifications. Quite the contrary, classifications expressly singling out Indian tribes as subjects of legislation are expressly provided for in the Constitution and supported by the ensuing history of the Federal Government’s relations with Indians. * * * Federal regulation of Indian tribes * * * is governance of once-sovereign political communities; it is not to be viewed as legislation of a “ ‘racial’ group consisting of Indians * * *.” United States v. Antelope, 430 U.S. 641, 645-

  11. Bell: ‘I lives to harass white folks’
    Video reveals motto of professor lauded by Obama
    March 9, 2012

    A video that has been posted on Breitbart TV reveals the professor about whom a young Barack Obama said, “Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell,” claimed as his own motto, “I lives to harass white folks.”

    The issue of Bell and his relationship with Obama arose recently when videos appeared that showed a Harvard-era Obama talking to a crowd, telling congregants to pay attention to the radical teacher. Significantly, the video revealed Obama’s far-left leanings during his college years, and the video shows then-student Obama speaking warmly of behalf of the leftist Bell and then hugging him.

    “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,” said editor Ben Shapiro of the website begun by the late conservative activist Andrew Breitbart.

    Referring to Professor Bell, Shapiro explained, “This is a close associate of [controversial Obama Rev.] 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.”

    • The name “Derrick A. Bell” shows up twice in the White House visitors’ logs for Jan. 29 and Jan. 31, 2010. Bell died in October 2011.

      The Obama-supported Bell also signed a credo calling for the abolishment of “the white race as a social category – in other words, eradicate white supremacy entirely.”

      He has a long history of racially divisive remarks. He was among the early critics of the June 1991 nomination of Justice Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, stating, “To place a person who looks black and who, in conservative terms, thinks white, is an insult.”

      Bell endorsed a journal called Race Traitor, whose official motto is “Treason to the white race is loyalty to humanity.”

      • I would be tempted to call for the abolishment of Bell as a “social category” but it seems that fate has done that already. You know what’s sad? He looked like a nice old man. Can’t judge a racist book by its cover. These are the same people who will tell you that race IS a social construct. So, pray tell, what is a “black man” or, for that matter, a “person of color”? I thought I read somewhere yesterday that Bell has been to the WH 14 times. Or was that Ogletree? He would be there often, since he was one of Barry’s debate coaches.

    • Distinguished Harvard professor who sets such a great example for students that he can’t even get his verbs to agree with his subjects. But that would be talking “white”.

    • That needs to be reiterated and reexamined in the context of Barry’s promised “fundamental transformation of America” and his salting the entire federal government with like-minded associates from Harvard Law School.

      The fact that Bell was in the WH during Barry’s tenure PROVES THAT THIS ASSOCIATION IS NOT A COLLEGE “FLING” BUT A LONG-STANDING MENTORSHIP. The obots cannot say it was just a student dabbling in radical ideas.

  12. Greetings All,

    Hope everyone takes a little time off and enjoys the coming of spring.

    Just to let you know, Leo Donofrio is hanging his legal hat up and closing his blog. He hasn’t done much on the blog for some time, but was doing some great research. I wish him well.

    • Noooooo. What a shame. We relied on his input so much.
      Where did you read that Ray? I just went to Mario’s blog and he had a revised article up dated March 12, 2012. He didn’t announce it on his blog that I could see.

      Oh my, I thought you wrote Mario Apuzzo…blind as a bat I guess.

      • “We’re all blood brothers.”

        “After long consideration and discussion with my family, I am saying goodbye to this blog and the law. I am retiring my law license and will be concentrating on making films, and writing music.

        There is no lawyer, politician or judge who will change the world into what God intended it to be – one family, one love. Angels are real. It’s gonna be a full on landing soon.

        Some are in the video at the following link.

        “BLOOD BROTHERS”

        ONE LOVE.

    More clarity from Breitbart on the critical racism renaissance, the agenda vetted:

    Oh, great find! That’s her, isn’t it? The girl from the video.

    Miri | March 15, 2012 at 8:54 am

    What a fool. It’s IMPOSSIBLE for a person who’s not a female “person of color” to see her position? Impossible! In that case, since there’s no two people on EARTH with the same background and history, it’s impossible for ANY American to see the position of any other random American. Riddle me this, genius: How is it possible for Barack Hussein Obama II to see your position when (1) he’s not female (?) and (2) he’s half white? So why do you make common cause with him and not me? At least I’m female, so I have more in common with YOU than he does.

    Miri | March 15, 2012 at 8:56 am
    For that matter, how was it possible for Derrick Bell to see her position? He’s a man, too.

    Miri | March 15, 2012 at 9:02 am
    Now here’s a puzzling paragraph. The writer Charles Johnson speaks about after Barry became potus:

    “Butts was also instrumental in convincing other alumni to support Obama’s candidacy. Butts introduced Obama to Broderick Johnson, a black lobbyist and film producer who has since signed on to help re-elect Obama, and to Thomas J. Perrelli, who, until this February, served as Obama’s associate attorney general. Perrelli also allegedly ordered career attorneys in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights division to drop a civil case against members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation in the 2008 election.”

    Uh, wasn’t Perrelli supposedly sitting RIGHT NEXT TO BARRY in the Harvard Law Review photo? This makes it sound as if he didn’t know Perrelli until after he hijacked the presidency.

    • “Butts was not the only practioner or supporter of Critical Race Theory in the Obama administration. There was also Preeta Bansal, who served as Obama’s General Counsel at Office of Management and Budget and Senior Policy Advisor until 2011. Bansal is also a leader at the American Constitution Society (ACS), a group that, contrary to its name, believes in a “living Constitution” and supports radical critiques of the document. Bansal even co-authored a 1988 Yale Law Review article with none other than Bell himself; the article that suggests white racism was at the heart of the Reagan Revolution.”

      And so it all comes together. The rhetoric. The hatred for whites. Will America SEE this time? Will the media allow them to see?

      • Gilda Daniels, a former Obama DOJ official … has argued that DOJ resources shouldn’t be expended to bring serial voting fraudsters like Ike Brown to justice for deliberately canceling ballots cast by white voters.”

        What’s that? MORE evidence of actual vote fraud that’s not supposed to exist? http://majorityinms.com/2009/03/03/ike-browns-voting-rights-violation-upheld/ He was convicted of disenfranchising white voters by the Bush DOJ.

      • It will be interesting to see how many black demonstrations take place in Charlotte,NC after the convention there. Huge black population. I really think that’s why it was chosen for the convention. And Durham, NC. is just up the road from the Raleigh headquarters. When Valery Jarret spoke in NC a few weeks back in Durham, that wasn’t your typical diverse college she spoke to , it was Central N.C. University “The Black University”.Durham is another hugely black populated area with some of the most liberal coalitions , and huge population of AFrican /s.African, Kwanza garbed people.And of course Duke university which is now so liberal. Acorn workers were out in swarms at N.C. State University and on all the campuses in the last election. Let’s see what they call themselves this time around.

      • ACS is that radical group of progressive lawyers that I found a couple years ago. Holder, Biden and Hillary were all members. (Since then their names were removed). That is where they also had posted that grad student’s thesis that wrote about changing the presidential requirement of NBC. I know I presented that background on the ACS about the time the first Congressional Memo surfaced.

        Founded by Soros – The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) is one of the nation’s leading progressive legal organizations. Founded in 2001, ACS is comprised of law students, lawyers, scholars, judges, policymakers, activists and other concerned individuals who are working to ensure that the fundamental principles of human dignity, individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice are in their rightful, central place in American law. [Sure they are!]

        • Isn’t “progressive legal” an oxymoron? They’re morons. I know that much. OXY morons? No, they were at Harvard with him!

          All kidding aside, good memory, Bridgette. It didn’t click. These names they make up all sound alike and they all sound SO INNOCENT. They should call this The NEW American Constitution Society. They can sit on it, and spin. They’re being BUSTED!

        • Wonder why they didn’t name themselves ACSFLAP?

    • American Constitution faces ‘progressive’ threat
      Look what Obama’s buddies plan for founding document

      July 03, 2011

      Still more White House officials, including Attorney General Eric Holder, have ties to an effort funded by billionaire George Soros to push for a new, “progressive” U.S. Constitution.

  14. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/14/Obama-Con-Law-1996-I Not technically about Harvard, but this vetting post by Breitbart’s is about Barry the constitutional law lecturer.

    “Let’s take a trip via the wayback machine to the hallowed classrooms of the University of Chicago Law School. The year is 1996, and a young lecturer named Barack Obama is teaching constitutional law to a group of students. His first final exam question is about whether homosexuals can be barred from receiving state health care coverage for their infertility treatments.”

    They’re NOT making that up. They link to a copy of the exam.

    • I’m guessing that some real genius (not Obama) wrote the “analysis” and told the students how and why they were graded the way they were. These lecturers have graduate student “assistants” who, in elite schools, often to ALL THE WORK. “That’s the way it works …”

  15. “Obama also gets in a slap at judicial originalists – judges who state that the original wording of the constitution must govern – and instead embraces a philosophy called legal realism. Legal realism holds that all judicial decisions are essentially excuses for judges to act out their politics. That’s true for leftists, who write their views into the constitution; it’s not true for conservatives, who abide by the constitution. But that’s not what Obama thinks: “What is safe to say is that the views of particular justices on the desirability of rearing in children [sic] in homosexual households would play a big part in the decision.””

    So he thinks that no matter what the law or the Constitution says, it’s “safe to say” (it is?) that the personal opinions of the justices (Kagan and Sotomayor?) would play a BIG PART in the decision. Amazing. He’s teaching CONSTITUTIONAL law and he’s acting as if, not only is this okay, it’s the way it ought to be!

    What a Freudian slip in the “mistake”. “the desirability of rearing in children.”

    • well, we know who Kagen is and her narrow agenda and we must remember that Sotomayor bragged about “making policy” from the bench…

      oh, and the victorious firemen that were silenced when Sotomayor was over ruled was very telling, as well.

      hmmm, is La Raza proponents of the critical race baiting theory, also?

      — it’s time to remove the race questions from all federal forms as it is in itself discriminating and a deliberate tool to legally discriminate, threaten and harm. one’s race should not matter in the 21st century as the world’s population becomes more biracial on every passing day.

      the law says it is illegal to discriminate based on race, therefore, the law speaks for itself and is a conundrum to shield the truth that it was enacted to provide protection and favoritism depending on race. a vicious circle.

      the only thing that should matter is your status as a citizen in our Country and the nationality of your parents, the blood that flows through your veins

      and of course, a block to check denoting whether or not you are a federal taxpayer or a minor thereof.

      • Amen! Like that third world country Mexico, which doesn’t ask race questions on its census. I like that: Critical Race Baiting Theory. CRBT.

  16. Today, I posted a copy of my new e-Book – a 48-page PDF with over 100 annotated photos that shows you why Obama’s photos do not look legit as well as taking a tongue-in- cheek approach to teaching people why they are doctored and what key features deserve more attention.

    Called, “Alias Barack Obama: A picture is worth 1,000 lies,” you can download it from the following website for the measly price of only $2.00 (multiple discounts are also available):

    http://www.dr-rjp.com/1000

    Since this site has done more to explore the phony family photos of alias Barack Obama and his surrogate families, I thought that your members would find my book useful in corroborating what you have already spotted as suspicious in a systematic and scientific way.

    I’m sure that I will get my share of trashing from all the troll experts who would believe pigs could fly if the White House posted photos of them.

    For space reasons, there are several photos that did not make it into this book, like the wedding photo of ZERO, MOOSHELL, and SADOS.

    I cannot tell you who created all the fauxtography after 1960 – but I can tell you who are the artists responsible for the Dunham Deception at Mercer Island High School.

    I call them the Seattle Slew – as in a slew of forgers – who created the mythology of a single female known as Stanley Ann Dunham, who allegedly attended MIHS after leaving 8th grade at Eckstein Junior High School in Seattle.

    Problem is that MIHS was a 3-yr school, 10th-12th grade only, when SAD allegedly went there, so where was she for 9th grade? Was there a SAD at all?

    It certainly does not help the official history of Stanley Ann Dunham when she can plainly be seen standing among some of the Class of 1958!

    Out of time. Out of space. Stanley Ann was more than one face.

  17. The text on his student profile is amazing, in your photo above. It says that people will become more mean-spirited in time of economic adversity. He nailed that one 20 years in advance. Thanks for the info.
