1. I'm much more aware of division by race tactics now than I was then.
As a friend of mine that goes by the name of BMutiny ThemIDefy pointed out in a mass email yesterday...
"Obama landslide victory shows U.S. public does NOT support Negative Campaigning. Landslide Victory for the first mixed-race Black-White President, definitively shows that the MAJORITY of the U.S. public, especially young people, do not respond in the old way to Negative Campaigning, using coded Racism, and Xenophobia, Religious Bigotry, Stereotypes, and such Fear Messages as that.
I couldn't agree more, and what a wonderful thing it is, but now we must go to work.It's all very interesting, because race relations should have seemingly improved because of Obama's election and I think they have, but not in the way I expected. Obama's failed presidency has paved the way for Trump and it's his candidacy that is opening up really honest and interesting dialogue on race relations and race baiting as in the first link above.
2. Donald Trump has already done more for 9/11 truth than Barack Obama ever did. But while Obama was doing nothing about it the message has spread far enough to reach Trump's ears.
So can we endlessly demand that Obama address the unanswered questions of the 9/11 victims' families? Yes We Can!Trump's promise to declassify the 28 pages on foreign government ties to 9/11 is one he still must be held to, but Obama's promises are clearly going to be forever broken. Trump brought the issue up on his own, arguably bringing more attention to it than did Obama, who made his promises personally to 9/11 family members when asked about it. So less attention was given to the issue the way it came about with Obama and it's a less disgusting promise broken if Trump fails to make good, as it wasn't a face to face with two 9/11 victims' family members.
Obama’s Unkept Promise to 9/11 Families: Releasing the 28 Pages
Can we endlessly demand that Obama address the questions of the more than 500 architectural and engineering professionals that are "demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation into the “collapses” of all 3 WTC high-rise buildings on 9/11"? Yes We Can!We did endlessly demand this, even getting a peer-reviewed paper in the hands of Vice President Biden. Donald Trump's response to ae911truth.org is more satisfying than anything than Obama offered in 8 years.
Can we endlessly pose to Obama the same question that Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth founder Justin Martell did early on in Obama's campaign when he asked the now President-elect "will you stand behind Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul in advocating for a new investigation into 9/11?" Yes We Can!That is one that again must be pursued, but the timing made much more sense with Obama.
Can we make it known that when The Guardian published the article, Obama Might Pursue Criminal Charges Against Bush Administration - Biden says criminal violations will be pursued, that a huge amount of Americans were excited. Can we prove that it is a huge amount of us? Can we make it known that Obama's concerns, quoted in the article, of being "perceived by Republicans" of being on "a partisan witch hunt" are unfounded in the face of the evidence? Yes We Can!Again, the time may have passed, but on the more timely issue of Hillary Clinton's email scandal, Trump says he will prosecute her if elected.
In sum, we must keep after Trump about 9/11 if he's elected, but in my opinion he's already done more for 9/11 truth and race relations than Obama, who strangely paved the way for both.
Will Obama Keep His Promise to Declassify the 28 Pages After All?
Donald Trump a Racist?
This Is What MSM Is Hiding At Trump Rallies - As protesters and Trump supporters clash outside of the Trump rally in Cleveland, OH a couple who support Trump and a Black Lives Matter member attempt to blur the lines of race and view the world from each others perspectives to better understand where they are each coming from. The mainstream media refuses to cover these interactions, instead painting all Trump supporters as vicious racists and continuing their strategy of divide and conquer.
