Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
The White House
July 16, 2016
[Today, let’s start with the “I” count…. like those 46 times I used the word ‘I’ during my Dallas Memorial blather… So wait until the afternoon to read this and take a drink each time there’s an ‘I’ in the text!!  Great fun!!]
Hi, everybody.  It’s been a challenging couple weeks.  The shootings in Minnesota and Baton Rouge; the protests; the targeting and murder of police officers in Dallas – it’s left all of us struggling to make sense of things at times.  Now, I know that for many, it can feel like the deepest fault lines of our democracy have suddenly been exposed, and even widened.  But the America I know – the America I saw this week – is just not as divided as some folks try to insist.  I saw it on Monday, when I met with law enforcement to talk about the challenges they face, and how too often, we ask our police to do too much – to be social workers, and teachers, guardians, and drug counselors as well.  I saw it on Tuesday, when I traveled to Dallas for the memorial service for the five courageous officers who died in the line of duty – even as they were protecting protesters with whom they may have disagreed.  I saw it on Wednesday, when I hosted police chiefs, Black Lives Matter activists, state and local leaders, and others for a discussion that lasted more than four hours – a discussion on more steps we can take to continue supporting the police who keep our streets safe, and instill confidence that the law applies to everyone equally.  And I saw it on Thursday, at a town hall in D.C., where we talked about how there is no contradiction between honoring police and recognizing the racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system, and trying to fix these discrepancies.
[While actions of police in both Louisiana and Minnesota had tragic, fatal results, they go to strengthen my resolve to bring the law enforcement establishment~nationwide~under the control and supervision of the federal Department ofJust Us!’  Some will remember that in March, 2015, I started the process of implementing a plan to ‘consolidate’ some 18,000 local, regional, state law enforcement agencies.  This plan has the acronym “COPS.”

“The U.S. Department of Justice, through the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services [COPS] and Office of Justice Programs, should provide technical assistance and incentive funding to jurisdictions with small police agencies that take steps towards shared services, regional training and consolidation”

These agencies will be brought under the Dep’t of Just Us‘ to be controlled by various levels of intimidation and bribery.  If they fail to comply with any of my provisions, they’ll not receive their federal ‘bribery’ funds.  I’ve been quoted, thus:

“I’m going to be asking Eric Holder and the Justice Department and his successor to go through all these recommendations so that we can start implementing them,” obama said, according to Infowars. “I know that one area that’s going to be of great interest is whether we can expand the COPS program that in the past has been very effective, continues to be effective, but is largely underfunded – to see if we can get more incentives for local communities to apply some of the best practices and lessons that are embodied in this report.”

The aforementioned ‘disparities’ are those wounds I’ve been picking at for the past seven-plus years, primarily the perception by America’s black communities that they’re being unjustly scrutinized, stopped, searched, detained, arrested… while going about their daily lives.  This has to stop! The black man, woman, family has suffered enough at the hands of ‘whitey’ and now must get their ‘just comeuppance.’  That will be gained in the racial strife I’ve been promoting~agitating for~my entire reign.  We’re seeing it come to fruition in Baton Rouge, suburban Minneapolis and in Dallas, Texas.
How the hell can this be happening you might ask: we have my Nazi-buddy, George Soros to thank.  He~through his “charity,” Open Society Foundations~has generously funded “BlackLivesMatter” and other like hate-groups to gin up racial hatred and increasing that same racial-divide I’ve spent my entire life promoting.
Back to the main point of this Saturday Blather…  On Wednesday, I had the police chiefs, local and state leaders, the “BlackLivesMatter,” hierarchy of agitators into barackINGHAM PALACE so that we might get all the talking points straight; get ourselves ‘on-the-same-page‘ with the various regime racial topics as well as determining which~racially directed~questions would be allowed from Thursday’s pre-screened ‘audience.’]
These conversations were candid, challenging, even uncomfortable at times.  But that’s the point.  We have to be able to talk about these things, honestly and openly, not just in the comfort of our own circles, but with folks who look differently and think differently than we do.  Otherwise, we’ll never break this dangerous cycle.  And that’s what America’s all about.  Not just finding policies that work – but forging consensus, fighting cynicism, and finding the political will to keep changing this country for the better. That’s what America gives us – all of us – the capacity to change.  It won’t happen overnight.  The issues we’re grappling with go back decades, even centuries.  But if we can open our hearts to try and see ourselves in one another; if we can worry less about which side has been wronged, and worry more about joining sides to do right, as equal parts of one American family – then I’m confident that together, we will lead our country to a better day.
