Race Relations In America Have Gone Berserk

16 03 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Americans of all colors, ethnic backgrounds and religious preferences owe the present tragic state of affairs to the un-American racist and anti-Semite Barack Obama.  Indeed, If one person could be singled out for having exacerbated race relations in the United States, it is Obama who has torn our great nation asunder.  

He has done far more than any President in our great nation’s history to sow racism, strife and discord.  And he has done this at a time when China’s Coronavirus has killed or hurt so many Americans, physically, psychologically and economically.[2]  Aside from trying the destroy the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump from Day One—which is treason—Obama has produced a racial divide that may take years if not generations to heal.

Obama should be in prison today, for his many crimes.  Indeed, this was all predictable if Americans had read his book, “Dreams from My Father,” before he was elected to national offices.  It sets out his racism explicitly and in his own words, which have withstood the test of time.[3]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written an article entitled “Who and What Killed George Floyd?” as follows:

Friday, as the jury was being empaneled for the trial of fired police officer Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis City Council voted 13-0 to approve a record $27 million civil settlement with the family of George Floyd over his death in police custody.

The jury will not likely miss this message sent by the city fathers:

I.e., an atrocity was perpetrated by our police, and we are admitting our responsibility and doing our duty by offering these reparations for Floyd’s cruel and unjustified death and the suffering visited on his family.

Most Americans who saw the nine-minute tape of Chauvin with his knee on the neck of George Floyd as he pleaded, “I can’t breathe,” will probably concur with the charge of criminal culpability of Chauvin.

Yet, over the months, new facts and factors have emerged.

George Floyd was not choked to death. He was not asphyxiated. He was not killed by Chauvin’s knee on the side of his neck. An autopsy showed Floyd’s neck muscles were not even bruised.

Floyd died when his heart stopped. Yet, he was already suffering from an enlarged heart with constricted arteries, one of five of which was 90% blocked and two others were 75% blocked.

An autopsy found heavy concentrations of fentanyl in Floyd’s system and traces of methamphetamines. If Floyd had collapsed and died in the street while being wrested into the squad car, his death would have been attributed to a drug overdose and a bad heart.

Also, a videotape of the minutes prior to Floyd’s being put on the pavement, his neck under Chauvin’s knee, shows Floyd crying, repeatedly, “I can’t breathe,” while resisting the two rookie cops trying to put him in the patrol car.

Moreover, there is testimony from those with Floyd when he was stopped for passing an allegedly phony $20 bill, that he had passed out in the car before the cops arrived. And the arresting cops claim he was foaming at the mouth before being restrained.

In short, Chauvin’s defense attorneys will likely make a credible case, backed by evidence, that Floyd’s death was not caused by the knee on his neck but by the battered condition of his heart, the near-lethal dose of fentanyl in his system, and his anxiety and panic at being arrested and fearing, as he wailed, that he was going to be shot.

The prosecution will counter-claim that Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck, and the two other cops sitting on him, precipitated the stopping of his heart.

But the prosecution faces other questions.

How could Chauvin, who arrived late to the scene, know Floyd was a drug addict with a serious heart condition and a large amount of fentanyl in his system, before using the restraint technique of sitting on him and putting a knee on the side of his neck?

What was Chauvin trying to do when he arrived to see two rookie cops trying to cope with a powerfully built, six-foot-four-inch, 220-pound man violently resisting arrest?

Did Chauvin put his knee on Floyd’s neck to kill him? To torture or injure him? Or did he use the technique to restrain him?

Prosecutors will contend that the knee on the neck was criminal assault, a felony that caused Floyd to black out and his heart to stop?

But that raises another question:

Is placing a knee on the side of the neck an outlawed or a prohibited procedure for police to use to restrain a suspect violently resisting arrest, as a chokehold is in some precincts?

Or is it a procedure some police use legally at times?

Chauvin was clearly familiar with the technique. Had he used it before without injury to a suspect?

In a motion to dismiss the charges he himself faces in the death of Floyd, former police officer Thomas Lane included 30 pages of Minneapolis PD training materials including information on the “maximal restraint technique.” Lane included a photo of an officer with a knee on a suspect’s neck, similar to the hold used by Chauvin.

In preparing for the trial of Chauvin, Minneapolis has fortified, with concrete barriers, fences and razor wire, the courthouse where it will be held. Understandably, for any acquittal of Chauvin, or conviction on a lesser charge than murder, could trigger a riot like those that plagued the city through the summer of 2020.

And if a mob does take to the streets in Minneapolis, as it did all last summer, the national reaction will be telling.

How does one accurately describe a crowd that gathers outside a courthouse to demand, on the threat of a riot, a verdict of guilty?

And should a riot occur — and violent protests in Louisville, Seattle and Portland over the weekend seem to point to another such long hot summer — may we expect our new national leaders (Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer) to denounce the mob and stand up unequivocally for the rule of law?[4]

The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities; killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Instead of being coddled or embraced by Joe Biden and his Democrats, they should be put down like rabid animals.

America’s blacks constitute less than 14 percent of our population.[5]  Yet, turn on TV any given day, and one might think that they are the dominant group in our population. This overcompensation permeates and distorts our society; and it is creating anger and revulsion among non-blacks.  Rather than improving race relations, it is exacerbating them.

Preferences have been given in academics, which the voters of far-Left California have rejected.[6]  On men’s professional football and basketball teams, there are very few white players.  When the football players take a knee as our flag is saluted and/or our national anthem is played, more and more of white America tunes out and refuses to watch. And when this occurs, they are branded as racists by the Democrats and the Left.

But it must never be forgotten that the Democrats gave us slavery, and perpetuated it after our Civil War with the KKK, segregation and later Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” programs that destroyed black families and consigned them to economic servitude.  Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans ended slavery.

Many on America’s Left do not want inclusion or equality; they want racial preferences, which would distort the United States forever.  Of course the idea of reparations is patently absurd, but it has become the mantra for many on the Left.  Like Barack Obama, they hate America and believe its history is fundamentally flawed and racist.

Unlike the first black to serve in the U.S. Senate after Reconstruction, Edward W. Brooke—who came from a loving family, and served as an Army officer during World War II—Obama came from a broken family.  He was raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, and never lived on the American mainland until he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.  And on some level, he hates the United States, its history and its values.[7]

Lastly, as I have stated previously:

I believe in this country, and I believe in Americans of all colors, faiths and backgrounds. The United States is the only true melting pot in the world, with its populace representing a United Nations of the world’s peoples. Yes, we fight and we even discriminate, but when times are tough—like after 9/11—we come together as one nation, which makes this country so great and special. Also, all of us or our ancestors came here from somewhere else. Even the American Indians are descended from those who crossed the Bering Strait—or the “Bering land bridge”—according to anthropologists.[8]

I believe this fervently.  All of us are equal in the eyes of God.

COMMENTARY by U.S. researcher making trips to Russia :

During the period of roughly February 1992 to mid 1994, I was making frequent trips to Moscow, Russia, in the process of starting a software development joint-venture company with some people from the Russian scientific community. One of the men in charge on the Russian side was named V. M.; he had a wife named T.M. V. was a level-headed scientist while his wife was rather deeply committed to the losing Communist cause – a cause she obviously was not abandoning. One evening, during a trip early in 1992, the American half of our venture were invited to V. & T.’s Moscow flat as we were about to return to the States. The party went well and we had the normal dinner discussions. As the evening wore on, T. developed a decidedly rough anti-American edge – one her husband tried to quietly rein in. The bottom line of the tirade she started against the United States went something like this: “You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government and your people are always so perfect. Well then, why haven’t you had a woman president by now? You had a chance to vote for a woman vice-president and you didn’t do it.” The general response went something along the lines that you don’t vote for someone just because of their sex. Besides, you don’t vote for vice-president, but the president and vice-president as a ticket. “Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.” The consensus we expressed was that we didn’t think there was anything innately barring that. The right person at the right time and sure, America would try to vote for the right person, be he or she black or not. “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist?” The out-of-the-blue remark was met by our stares. She continued, “Well, you will; and he will be a Communist.” It was then that the husband unsuccessfully tried to change the subject; but she was on a roll and would have nothing of it. One of us asked, “It sounds like you know something we don’t know.” “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.” She became more and more smug as she presented her stream of detailed knowledge and predictions so matter-of-factly – as though all were foregone conclusions. “It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.” We sat there not knowing what to say. She was obviously very happy that the Communists were doing this and that it would somehow be a thumbing of their collective noses at America: they would give us a black president and he’d be a Communist to boot. She made it quite obvious that she thought that this was going to breathe new life into world Communism. From this and other conversations with her, she always asserted that Communism was far from dead. She was full of little details about him that she was eager to relate. I thought that maybe she was trying to show off that this truly was a real person and not just hot air. She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the legislature. “Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet.” At one point, she related some sort of San Francisco connection, but I didn’t understand what the point was and don’t recall much about that. I was just left with the notion that she considered the city to be some sort of a center for their activity here. Since I had dabbled in languages, I knew a smattering of Arabic. I made a comment: “If I remember correctly, ‘Barack’ comes from the Arabic word for ‘Blessing.’ That seems to be an odd name for an American.” She replied quickly, “Yes. It is ‘African'”, she insisted, “and he will be a blessing for world Communism. We will regain our strength and become the number one power in the world.” She continued with something to the effect that America was at the same time the great hope and the great obstacle for Communism. America would have to be converted to Communism and Barack was going to pave the way. So, what does this conversation from 1992 prove? Well, it’s definitely anecdotal. It doesn’t prove that Obama has had Soviet Communist training nor that he was groomed to be the first black American president, but it does show one thing that I think is very important. It shows that Soviet Russian Communists knew of Barack from a very early date. It also shows that they truly believed among themselves that he was raised and groomed Communist to pave the way for their future. This report on Barack came personally to me from one of them long before America knew he existed. Although I had never before heard of him, at the time of this conversation Obama was 30+ years old and was obviously tested enough that he was their anticipated rising star. http://rense.com/general84/brck.htm Tom Fife

Obama to Topple America for Communism ? :

Obama as a Communist Spearhead, as Bill Ayers’ Handler ? : “Vladimir Lenin once uttered an ominous warning for our time “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them”. Even Lenin had no idea that a devout follower of his communist doctrines would ever become the President of the United States. He thought the Soviet Union would topple America from the inside. However, it isn’t a Russian communist who is destroying America, but rather it is a domestic communist, a Manchurian candidate and his name is Barak Hussein Obama and he is serving his third term as President as he manipulates the demented Biden. Obama is still tying the noose around the neck of all freedom-loving Americans.” :

Thank you. Fascinating.

In my research for the first article of this blog about Obama, and thereafter, one question stumped me. How did Obama afford his colleges and his extensive travels?

See https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/is-barack-obama-a-racist/ (“Is Barack Obama A Racist?”)

I have three degrees, and attended four prestigious American universities; and I could not have afforded what he did.

His mother was in Hawaii and then Indonesia with her second family; and there is no indication that she was funding him, or that he was working to any appreciable extent.

Her parents did fund his stay at Punahou, but that seems to be it. And nowhere in his book, or any sources that I have read, is there mention of how he was able to afford what he did.

. . .

On another note, during my nonstop 21 years of working in Washington, I would take cabs to wherever I was going. Many were driven by Africans who were studying at Howard University. They were well-educated and spoke perfect English with British accents.

They looked down on American blacks who were uneducated and the descendants of slaves. Indeed, I was struck by their views, and have never forgotten them.

Also, as stated in his book, Obama only spent one month of his life with his African father. His views were formed by his alienation from both parents, even though he loved his mother who was living in Indonesia with her second family.

Interesting. A couple of other points to consider: Obama had a very important mentor in his life; Frank Marshall Davis. Davis was well known for being a rabid Communist. Davis also happened to be a pornographer, a rarity in those days, which brought him into personal contact with Obama’s mother. Many have made a plausible case for Davis being Obama’s real biological father. Photographic comparisons of the two indicates strong, facial similarities, whereas, virtually none exist when Obama is compared to his supposed Kenyan “father.”

Also, I happened to be surfing the Internet when the news story broke concerning Rev. Wright’s infamous comments about “damning America.” Rev. Wright was the “pastor” of the church of which Obama was a member. After hearing the story, I immediately did a search and found the church’s website, and proceeded to the “store” to find out what kind of material was being offered for sale. All of the classic Marxist books were listed. There were also books listed that promoted Marxist Black Liberation Theology.

I wish I had done a screen capture, because when I went back to the website several hours later, EVERYTHING from the “store” had been removed from the site.

Thank you as always, Ray, for your comments.

Obama’s mother was a “free spirit,” which he readily acknowledges in his book. Also, the racist Rev. Wright was an important factor in his life for many years, until it was determined to be politically expedient to curtail the relationship. The same is true of Bill Ayers, who it has been speculated contributed mightily to the book.

What’s amazing to me is the fact that even after Obama was elected to two terms, he remains every bit of the bitter, racist, “victim” as described in your excellent article “Is Barack Obama A Racist?”

Obama’s enduring “legacy” is that America has never been more racially divided. The main stream media has jumped on the Obama “whites are racists” bandwagon by spreading disinformation over and over again, ad infinitum, particularly when it comes to crime. Their message? Basically, all blacks are good and innocent, while all cops are bad and racist … in spite of the evidence to the contrary.

For an illustration of this, read “Who and What Killed George Floyd?” by Patrick J. Buchanan

https://buchanan.org/blog/who-and-what-killed-george-floyd-142867

As you read Buchanan’s article, ask yourself this question; why is it that the main stream media failed to report on any of this evidence, which was certainly available for all to see?

I have been reflecting on the precarious status of an independent Taiwan and have some thoughts. First, I think the more I look at foreign affairs/ current events, the more I see Taiwan as a possible future global flash point initiating a new war ( if China takes any action intended to control or own it ). I think Taiwan could become pivotal. USN Admiral Davidson says Guam is a strategic target for China. So, its a bit more complicated. Maybe Guam first and then Taiwan? China could invade Taiwan in next six years, a top U.S.N. Admiral Davidson warns in recent Congressional testimony.

I also suspect, for reasons I have recently learned (from a native Ukrainian immigrant) that Russia and China both want to knock-off what they perceive as a bulling America from its perch, permanently. So, a future alliance may include Islamic or Muslim governed countries, as well. Not sure if these unlikely partners have yet to work out a viable alliance agreement for such future co-operation. More likely, financial (monetary) and economic ties must first precede military co-operation. So, I do not see North Korea as a flash point in such a future scenario, however. Wherever the threat comes from, we had better be ready for it.

So, once a military action takes place in Asia, the Russians may initiate their own military action simultaneously. For now, I don’t sense the time is right, but I do believe this is how we may be defeated and thus lose our global power and status to rising powers and their allies. However, the next war won’t be like WWII, as the goal of China is simply to render us incapable of posing any kind of threat to them or be a hindrance to their nationalistic expansion goals in the Asian region. Nobody wants to occupy Wall Street or North America.

We have precious few friends left in the world except Israel. Historically, War is one “tried and true”, old fashioned way to resolve irreconcilable differences when major nations conflict. Often, its winner take all ( Like an old Lion when young upstarts challenge him inorder to take away his territory and harem, usually resulting in a fight to the death. Same with old, aging, and weak (overly indebted) world powers or empires as in the past. “Nature” is always brutal.

My basic assumption is China can not easily defeat us singlehandedly. However, a team-tag effort might get it done under the right circumstances. I think we remain too strong for China to try it for the time being, even with a VERY weak President and Cowardly Congress. However, the weaker we get overall as a nation, the greater the chances an enemy will feel invited to “try us out”.

It sure won’t be an easy war like we had with Iraq, which was not a full-fledged developed nation with a formidable army, navy, and air force (Just a third rate power). Only a team of nations could muster the necessary resources together inorder to take-on the #1 Power. If it ever happens in the next 15 years, this is probably the most likely war scenario. We better be more ready for it than is currently the case or we risk getting out “clock cleaned”. What will be will be. Nothing and nobody lasts forever.

Thank you, Craig, for your comments.

First, I agree that Taiwan may be a future flashpoint. Guam is part of the U.S., which would be tantamount to a direct hit on America.

See, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guam (“Guam”)

Second, I agree with the linkage between China and Russia. China’s Communist rulers are playing a grand game of chess, biding their time until Putin is gone and Russia implodes. Then, at the very least, they may seize Siberia, which they covet because of its much-needed natural resources.

Third, North Korea is a loose cannon because of Kim and his sister.

Fourth, any war could spin out of control and produce unintended consequences.

Fifth, I agree with your last two paragraphs.

Lastly, the Biden presidency may implode, which might trigger actions on the part of China, Russia, North Korea and Iran. And yes, Israel might be vulnerable.

See, e.g., https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/is-israel-doomed/ (“Is Israel Doomed?”)

To fully understand almost any issue to do with race you need two key pieces of information which never see the light of day in our society.

1) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2fIy6DTZU4

2) https://rense.com/general77/bvw.htm

If you take both of them in with an open mind — everything comes into focus.

What I see now is very intelligent people skidding around in circles chasing every kind of fruitless analysis. It is actually very simple.
