For the eight years of the Barack Obama presidency, the mainstream media played along while liberals accused vast swaths of America of “racism” for declining to go along with the myth that American institutions were built to oppress blacks.

But Shelby Steele, a black man and respected conservative author, just published a message that all Americans need to hear — especially after the social justice warriors, Black Lives Matter marchers, and “woke” racial rioters unleashed during the Obama era.

And it explains everything about why the lies the media and the American left keep telling about President Donald Trump won’t really work.

“Our new conservative president rolls his eyes when he is called a racist, and we all — liberal and conservative alike — know that he isn’t one,” Steele wrote this week in The Wall Street Journal. “The jig is up.”

That’s the heart of the matter. Not even liberals really believe their own lies anymore about Trump or Republicans in general — if they ever did.

Breaking news updates and daily headlines from a news source you can trust.
Steele’s essay is headlined “The Exhaustion of American Liberalism.” In just under 1,000 words, it describes why the left continues to bang the “racism” drum when it comes to critics

“America, since the ’60s, has lived through what might be called an age of white guilt,” Steele wrote. “We may still be in this age, but the Trump election suggests an exhaustion with the idea of white guilt, and with the drama of culpability, innocence and correctness in which it mires us …

“White guilt is a mock guilt, a pretense of real guilt, a shallow etiquette of empathy, pity and regret.”

And it was in large part a reaction to that “mock guilt” that led to the election of Barack Obama, one of the most manifestly ill-equipped men ever to hold the nation’s highest office.

Do Democrats use "racism" accusations as a political weapon?
For the Democrat political machine, of course, Obama was just another horse to ride on the path to power.

But for many white Americans, the Obama candidacy was a chance to finally absolve themselves and the country of the “original sin” of slavery and racism. So they took a chance on a guy they never heard of, steeped in the corruption of Chicago Democrat politics, and hoped for the best.

That ended in disaster and scandal — an economy in the toilet, record numbers of Americans on food stamps at home, the rise of dictators abroad with contempt for the United States. And all Democrats offered was more of the same in the candidacy of the hate-mongering Hillary Clinton.

So Americans turned to the alternative in one of the greatest upsets in the country’s political history.

The left started accusing Trump of “racism” long before his victory in November 2016, and it’s only intensified since then.

But as Steele points out, liberals are fighting in a battle that passed a half-century ago. The country has changed, and Americans know it.

Democrats and the “progressive” left love to describe conservative resistance to Obama as “racism.” But resistance to suicidal domestic plans (Obamacare, normalizing “transgender” mental disorders) and humiliating appeasement in foreign policy (the Iran nuclear deal) isn’t racism, and even liberals know it.

But they don’t know any other way to fight.

As Steele writes:

“Today’s liberalism is an anachronism. It has no understanding, really, of what poverty is and how it has to be overcome. It has no grip whatever on what American exceptionalism is and what it means at home and especially abroad. Instead it remains defined by an America of 1965 — an America newly opening itself to its sins, an America of genuine goodwill, yet lacking in self-knowledge.”

Thanks in part to justifiable and welcome progress the country has made in racial equality, America isn’t lacking that self-knowledge anymore.

Steele’s op-ed blew the lid off the real reason Democrats call Trump and his supporters “racists.” It’s a game they’ve played for 50 years now, and it’s a game they’ve won doing it.

But Trump’s election changed that.

And, as Steele put it, “the jig is up.”     https://conservativetribune.com/black-man-left-trump-racist/

Trump's own actions and words are why people think he's a racist.  You can argue the point of whether he is or isn't, but taking the position that he never even acted that way is beyond ridiculous.  I personally don't think he is AS racist as he pretends to be.

The jig is most definitely up and it sure helps to explain why the Democrats are constantly convulsing in anger and writhing in pain everyday here on NT.  After suffering the most humiliating political loss of their lives they reflexively lash out in frustration faced with the reality that their cherished political weapons are losing their effectiveness. 

Go on down the list of polemics employed to fade their sorrows and all you find is a festering festish of fatuousness amid a cauldron of cranks and kooks rivaling their kindred spirits in Islamaland.

Their inanity is morphing into humorless absurdities as they attempt to obscure their ininquitous dystopian predispositions with duplicitous self-righteousness and sanctimonious caterwauling.

Oh say it ain't so Joe, or should we just list those familiar voices of anguish here on NT.  Queue the cacophony of controversion and witness the plaintive wail of sociopathic slander syndome. It's a real treat.

This quote. . .no, actually this whole article is one "for the birds." All of this useless PROJECTION! Okay, conservatives you want to stick you head in your hand and your consciences in your pocket—let it be on each of your own backs! What you will not and can not do is sell "high octane" BS to Liberals and Black America.

As for Mr. Shelby Steele, the jig is up for him. What he should do is speak for himself and conservatism (to whom he is selling his 'blakploitation' books). Giving conservatives succor to quote him as a 'blackface' to absolve themselves of loss of consciences, by talking down the only person so far that has ever seen and felt what it is to hold real world power while sitting at the head of the leading racially retentive superpower nation, makes him an "Uncle Reject."

Respect calls out for respect. If Mr. Steel ain't got none to present—none can be returned.

We love Clarence Thomas as well.  We have conservative African American economists,op ed writers, journalists, and pastors that we greatly respect and support.  Just because they are conservative doesn’t give you grounds to minimize their accomplishments or our support for African Americans.

And you should support conservatives AS followers of conservative causes. My issue is with your rendering of Shelby Steele as some voice of Black People.

"Uncle Reject" needs to turn his sword inward and rhetorically stab that big mouth Twitter wretch who is diminishes the tradition of the Presidency every day. President Trump pushes the unorthodox treatment of his Office to daily and over-saturated exposure. You know it, too. You wish he would shut the "H" up and lower his profile. A "dignified" President would let a day in the life of this nation go by without him being the centerpiece. Well, you know Trump, sure you do by now: As long as he can keep his BIG NAME-CALLING HEAD floating on all networks - IT'S A GOOD DAY!

You do not have a problem with that.

So miss me with what "Uncle Reject" thinks as he takes conservative 'coin': Because, for him, conservative money for his books look better in his account than in the accounts of the lot of you!

I recommend that Mr. Steele when he chooses to write about former President Barack Obama, he should see the proverbial cup half full instead of the inverse. President Obama was handed a broken distressed nation for which he applied himself and sat long days and nights to nurse back to recognizable health.

Guilt by Association?  Skinny, black man from Chi-town does good. Serves eight years in the White House, played well on the world stage, and no woman or man, count them, nobody comes up from the 'under-belly' of opposition research in his pre-campaigns, tenure in office, or after to destroy his reputation, accuse him, or sue him.  While President Trump, the lout attending the West Wing today, has to deny and lie, every day a cacophony of women who keep crying out for justice from conservative leadership. But, you all won't push Trump's loutish ass out into the street where he can get the justice he wants for others! Give. Me. A. Break.

Barack H. Obama is the husband of one wife. He served eight years without a personal scandal. He left the presidential office in good stead. Heartland, Barack is a former President now. History already has the tale of the tape that matters. Trying to revise the hard-working, stoic, black president, down into just some 'brother off the street" just ain't going to stick!

What you need to take stock of is that President Trump does not embarrass himself and your philosophy, because he goes out of his way to piss off people. One day, he just might do so to the right set of folks, who have the "goods" on him. . . and lookout, somebody shall 'drop a dime' on him.

Here is what is factually going to happen:

Archived Websites

In January 2017, the White House website was archived as a way to preserve the online presence of the administration of President Barack Obama.  Additionally, the websites for Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative, the We The People Petitions, and the White House Data Catalog (open.whitehouse.gov) were also preserved. These websites are historical material, “frozen in time.”  They are no longer updated and links to external websites and some internal pages will not work.

These archived websites are an excellent resource for photographs, speeches, press releases, digital data, and other public domain records of the Obama Presidency from 2009–2017. 

The official files making up the websites are archived in NARA’s Electronic Records Archives (ERA), however the website interface and functionality is preserved for easy use by the public through this portal.

National Archives Announces a New Model for the Preservation and Accessibility of Presidential Records image

National Archives Announces a New Model for the Preservation and Accessibility of Presidential Records

May 3, 2017

The National Archives and Records Administration announced today a new model for the preservation and accessibility of Presidential records.  This follows an Obama Foundation announcement of its commitment to fund the digitization of all of the unclassified Presidential records created during the administration of President Barack Obama.  Instead of constructing a building to house the textual and artifact records, existing NARA facilities will house the original materials.

In this new model, NARA will administer neither a museum nor a traditional “Presidential Library,” and will instead focus its resources and personnel on preserving and making accessible the Presidential records of the 44th President of the United States in digital format to the greatest extent possible.  The new model continues NARA’s long-standing role as the Nation’s steward of Presidential records.  An added benefit is the enhanced ability to more quickly make released Presidential records available to researchers regardless of location.

Once the records are digitized, NARA will store and preserve the original paper records, as well as the artifacts, in an existing facility that meets NARA’s high standards for archival storage.  A staff at that location will be responsible for caring for the records and artifacts.  As part of NARA’s responsibility to provide access, staff will also support a loan program that provides records and artifacts for exhibition in the Obama Museum, as well as in other private museums.

Classified records will be stored in the Washington, DC area, where they can more efficiently and effectively be secured and reviewed for declassification.  As classified records are declassified and released, NARA will make them available in digitized form.

In addition to the paper records, NARA received more than 250 terabytes of electronic records, including approximately 300 million emails, from the Obama White House.  Together, these “born digital” and the digitized materials will represent the largest digital archive of Presidential records.  NARA staff will be able to work from existing facilities to process and review this content using digital tools to support their work.

The establishment of a digital archives for the records of President Obama continues NARA’s efforts to establish new ways of reaching more researchers, educators, students, and citizens alike in the 21st Century, and sets the stage for a new era in the study of Presidents past and future as well as of the Presidency itself.

Archived Social Media

For the first time with the Barack Obama administration, social media feeds will also be preserved by NARA.  Similar to the method in which the White House website domain (WhiteHouse.gov) is transferred from administration to administration, the original White House social media account names (and accounts used by some staff) will pass to the next administration. Social media content from the Obama administration will be preserved under new handles by NARA.  For example, @POTUS on Twitter will be archived at @POTUS44 . (See a full list of archived account names here.)

While the content will still be available, not all functionality of the accounts will be maintained.  As of January 20, 2017, commenting has been turned off for these historical accounts to maintain as much of the original look and feel as possible. 

The Obama White House Office of Digital Strategy detailed its digital transfer process in this October 2016 blog post. In a January 2017 blog post, the Office also made available for download the White House’s Twitter (.zip), Facebook (.zip), and Vine (.zip) archives as well as the tweets published by President Obama (.zip) and the First Lady (.zip).

Obama was an Alinsky community organizer and the Left has always favored socialistic ideology, so he was the perfect candidate for them at a time when they felt they could push their agenda of transforming this country into a socialist country across the line.  Obama was the most liberal Senator in Congress, but many more have sprung forth since he became President.  He was the worst thing that ever happened to this country in my opinion.  Sure, he was cool, campaigned in such a way as to convince many he was going to be exactly opposite of what he turned out to be. 

One of the most important things Obama had was the full support of the Left Wing Media which dominates the United States means of information.  If the media had been honest about Obama, he would have never won his first election, but they praised him, put him on a pedestal and covered for him by reporting even the worse situations favorable for Obama.  A means of propaganda that fed Americans lies every day and in such a manner that made many feel they were out of step if they didn't believe them.  He betrayed our allies and rewarded out enemies.  He was at war his entire two terms in office.  He also received more financial support from Wall Street than any other candidate in history while convincing his supporters he was on their side, one of them.

He was going to have the most transparent administration in history, but most journalist, even though they nearly unconditionally supported him, complained he had the least transparent administration in history.  He was going to bring the country together, but used Stalinist tactics to pit one group against the other, men against women, young against old, black against white, rich against poor and so on.  He was a wimp in foreign affairs and a disciplinarian with American people who didn't go along with his agenda. 

He wasn't a big mouth like Trump. He had poise.  He had charm.  He was a well versed con artist and obviously a very convincing one to many people who put him in office twice.  He was the perfect candidate and President for the MSM.  He was the empty suit.  The media made Obama in every respect with the exception of his own talent of being a very good orator and his charming personality to those who could see no flaws in his inner personality.  People were hypnotized as they were with Hitler as they are with Trump today.  The only difference in the 100% supporters in Obama and the 100% supporters in Trump are they are 100% in support of two different men.

Obama spoke when it was politically beneficial to push his agenda, but left those of us disappointed when he remained silent when he could have help bring us together.  I believe he was a spiteful person and I consider his administration the most corrupt and deceitful administration in my life time.  He's loved by many, with some even carrying dolls of him in their pocketbooks to give them comfort and a feeling it is going to be alright.  I believe many on the Left would have agreed Obama could stay in office as long as he wanted to stay, a big difference the Left has with all those who love freedom.

The left has a visceral hatred toward African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and married women or even single women who are conservatives.

"That ended in disaster and scandal — an economy in the toilet, record numbers of" out of work Americans. Oh wait, that was the end of the previous Republican administration that Obama had to rescue us from. How you idiots imagine record DOW highs and record low unemployment with a strong growing economy and no major scandals, no indictments, no major investigations a "disaster and scandal - an economy in the toilet". This is why reasonable, sensible Americans can't have civil discourse with the rabid right, they have two completely different views of America that are so disparate you'd have to assume they're talking about two different countries if you didn't know any better.

Most of the nation understands and appreciates what Barack Obama did for this nation that was on the brink of financial collapse in 2008 with double digit unemployment and a GDP at almost -3%, a 70 year low on Wall street and a foreclosure crisis. Whatever other problems you have with Obama, you have to admit that he did in fact right the ship, grew the economy, cut unemployment in half and saw the DOW back to record highs as well as have the terrorist who attacked us on 9/11 killed. For those who can't accept those accomplishments and act as if they never happened I can only ask, "Why?" to which the most logical answer for this is simple prejudice. Some people can't see past the color of his skin and give him any wins. Sometimes you even get black Americans like the author above who feel Obama overstepped his racial boundaries. Would he have called any other white seven year State Senator, four year US senator and former constitutional law professor "one of the most manifestly ill-equipped men ever to hold the nation’s highest office"? I doubt it. And obviously the vast majority of black Americans do not share his sentiment considering that over 96% of them voted for him in both elections and he still enjoys one of the highest approval ratings of any President.

Damn, right.  The last time Obama's favorability was polled was about 8 months ago and he came in at 61% favorable.  tRUMP's favorability as of early this month was 34%.  Don't ask me how a third of the country can possibly see this Shitbag in a favorable way but I guess there's just no accounting for taste.  I suppose there's a third of the country that also thinks the earth is flat.

What's wrong with disco?  Millions of us who are musically broadminded also appreciate classical music, R&B,  and rap.
