President Obama Gives The Country Some Well Deserved Real Talk

A must listen to interview. Marc was great. He asked very relevant questions and covered an interesting breadth of topics. President Obama was fantastic. He doesn’t have to run his answers through pollsters, a communication team, a PR firm, etc., He is always refreshingly honest because he speaks from the heart. A hallmark of a true leader

    Why can’t ‘Obama’ just be an angry black man? Why does he have to go on being positively brilliant and centered, with his heart and his mind connected? This is the deep question whitey is asking, really. They are sure they could handle an ‘angry black man’, but this? Really now, he is showing them all a dimension of reality they had no idea existed. God Bless and Hold in His Heart, all those who have given their lives to bring our sad country to this place of possible hope and change. We are not there, but maybe, maybe, maybe, the ship is turning.

    Rafael Cruz, Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) father, on Saturday said that northeastern Jews and Catholics put their allegiance to the Democratic Party ahead of their religion.

    “Unfortunately, in the northeast, the Jews are Democrats first and Jews second,” he said at an event on Saturday held by the Palm Beach County Tea Party. “This is what has happened to a great many in the Catholic church. They are Democrats first and Catholics second.”

    Rafael Cruz said that Americans “need to put principle above tradition.”

    “There are people voting Democrat because, ‘My grandfather or my father voted Democrat.’ Let me tell you something. The Democratic party today is not the Democratic party of John Kennedy. John Kennedy would be a Republican today,” he said.


    Cruz and his son are Dominionists

    Dominionism : is a political and religious philosophy that seeks to make the United States government a Christian theocracy.

      The father Cruz is as nutty as his son. With half this country voting reflexively R, no matter how disastrous the consequences to themselves, he has to nerve to talk about Democrats. The Democratic Party for all of it’s egregious flaws is closer to the party of John Kennedy than the Republicans are to Dwight Eisenhower. JFK would recognize his party. Ike would bow his head in shame. Even Ronald Reagan would be considered “too liberal” to win a primary in today’s GOP.

    I just had a mental image of Nikki Haley’s giving her press conference, ending it, and ol’ Lindsay Graham rushing up the state house steps to an empty platform saying “Wait for me! Damn that Obama! I’m a leader!”

      It’s amazing how all of these Republicans took funds from this White Supremacist and are only now giving up these donations under the public spotlight. Don’t they investigate their donors?

    Great pictures of interview at

    I have grinned so much listening to this interview that I have sprained my face.

    This Obama fella is touched with magic.

    Simply amazing with his calm, cool, laid-back self😁

      eve, I found myself smiling while listening too. I especially enjoyed hearing PBO chuckle or laugh. I appreciate the fact that Marc was a great interviewer, he lobbed the question out and let PBO answer how he wanted to. In the beginning before PBO arrived, hearing Marc talk was making me excited and nervous for him, but he did really well – they both did.

      btw eve, how’s Chris doing? Send him our love and prayers are still going up so blessing will rain down {{{hugs}}}

    VP Joseph Robinette Biden II, is one incredible Soul. Walking the earth with us, arm-in-arm with President Barack Hussein Obama, at a time the entire world needs them both. How blessed are we? This man, this strong, caring, genuinely kind man, who buried his eldest son only two weeks ago, has the fortitude to attend a funeral of this massive proportion. In my deepest, strongest prayer, I will ask that he be continually blessed in the Light of God. May his strength be an example to those who see only the superficial elements of life, may they seek to emulate his character for the good of all.

      MP, I agree with every word about our beloved VP. Two of the world’s most extraordinary and caring men will be going to the funeral services on Friday.

      CNN is already talking about it.

      ” She just jumped to the top of everyone’s VP List. ”

      How pathetic. There is something seriously wrong with these pundits brains.. they need to seek help…asap

      • 82 pkayden
        June 22, 2015 at 5:27 pm

        Why would she jump to anyone’s VP list? She’s doing what should have been done a long time ago. That racist flag shouldn’t be on any state’s public property. She doesn’t get a cookie for doing the right thing here — especially when it appears she’s only doing it after protests and the murder of 9 churchgoers.

          I agree with you about Nikki Haley doing one right thing and everyone fawns praise all over them, just like they did with Romney. Chris Matthews is an example of that.

    Something else I have been meditating on lately: We must be in a tremendously blessed time of human experience. On this planet, at this time, we have Barack Obama and Joe Biden as a team of brothers on a Soul level; we have HH Dalai Lama, who travels tirelessly, teaching and illuminating wherever he is welcome (which is just about everywhere!), and now we have Pope Francis, who is dynamically tilting centuries of stifled indoctrination and skewed belief, standing up against millennia of repression by those who have taken the teaching of Christ into a dark and unnatural territory, far far far from where Christ Himself stood. All this, as we face the Holocene Extinction, or as my lady client said yesterday, “some call it the End Days”. And so many of us, joining on a mental level, giving from heart and soul awareness, bonded together to focus the Light of intelligent reason, standing beside and behind these men we are gifted to walk the earth with today. As I said, Just pondering.

    Was it SC or SD the last state POTUS visited?
    SC was the 49th State and the SD was the 50th POTUS visited.
    Note folks……SD has a State Flag. The Confederate flag is Nothing but a Racist Flag, period.

    Chipsticks: endless flowing glowing gratitude for this place and community. NerdyWonka, you keep
    Reaching higher and taking us along as you exceed all expectation. Your own tweets today on the parade of preposterous posturing pompous preening performance art by WHPC &Co. is so smart witty sharp solid and fun. And you are creating crystalline commentary WHILE simultaneously curating tweets etc from so many places for us? You do so much so brilliantly. It matters and you rock.
