Polls/Petitions The Latest
Obama Insults Every American Police Officer In Latest Move…This Is Absolutely Shameless!
By Kathy Shaidle|December 20, 2016

Pundits have been making a big deal about how President Obama is more “educated” than his successor.  He may have more degrees, but our Harvard Professor President, according to his latest move, doesn’t have much common sense.

The misunderstanding between Professor Henry Gates, who is African-American, and a local (white) police officer should have remained a minor local nuisance. Instead, Obama jumped on the story and tried to turn it into a national “teaching moment” about “racist” policing.

The whole matter, and the subsequent White House “beer summit” between the parties involved left a bitter taste with voters who’d taken Obama at his word that he was going to be a post-racial president.

That was how Obama’s administration began. Not surprisingly, it is ending on a similar note:

The day before President Obama’s last press conference of the year, the White House quietly announced his presidential appointments of Dego Adegbile and Catherine Lhamon to six-year terms on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Both appointments are aggressive moves for a president on his way out the door.

Obama previously nominated Adegbile to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, but a bipartisan group of senators blocked the nomination in 2014 due to Adegbile’s defense of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Adegbile’s appointment, which will not require congressional approval, left pro-police groups crying foul.

This won’t get anywhere near the attention that the “beer summit” did, but it sends the same message and actually has more lasting real world consequences. Once again, Obama is making it clear that he’s not on the side of the police.
