OBAMA 2009AN OBAMA COMMENTARY (28)
Last week we were treated to messages from USA president Obama, commenting on Supreme Court decisions that supported some of his major objectives.
President Obama scored in the field of ‘diplomatic engineering.’ What has been done for the USA by the Supreme Court, on OBAMACARE, the interpretation of marriage in an accurate sense, to alleviate the ‘Gay Marriage’ syndrome and yes, the remark on grace: attracting grace and God’s help. ….”.where it is the free and benevolent favour of the Almighty” Some problems exist, the gun control problem, the vexatious situation in race relations, some of which are discussed further.
I have reviewed foreign relations especially with Russia and Iran as having no evident solution; but this too I feel content he shall resolve, and he has in fact delayed the implementation of a new agreement with Iran and Russia.
Then this week news from Texas, Abortion Clinics are once again authorized to continue operations by the Supreme Court of the United States,, another pragmatic solution in a controversial situation. It seems that the women’s pro-choice option has worked in persuading sufficient support .
The Ferguson race riots seem to be controlled to a point where order is being restored, yet we need to consider the facts in greater detail.
The years 2014-2015 were recorded by the blood of the innocents. Perhaps more children were murdered in those years mercilessly and vindictively without cause, without regret. The years will remain in history as those that possibly pointed to the end of civilization in the USA; I would venture to say that around 70% of persons killed were black or coloured.
Obama commented “There are very few African American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me. There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me—at least before I was a senator. There are very few African Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often.”
In 2009 African-Americans are 21% more likely than whites to receive mandatory minimum sentences and 20% more likely to be sentenced to prison than white drug defendants. In 2010, the U.S. Sentencing Commission reported that African Americans receive 10% longer sentences than whites through the federal system for the same crimes.

These statistics illustrate one reason the Afro-American resentment is increasing. Obama visited Jamaica and established some rapport with our Government, the results of which have not completely been disseminated to Jamaicans.
In retrospect, when we look back at the time he entered Government in the USA, in 2009, we find the difficulties he encountered:
The Presidency of Barack Obama began at noon EST on January 20, 2009, when he became the 44th President of the United States.
He attended the G-20 London summit and later visited U.S. troops in Iraq. He announced in Prague that he won the 2008 presidential election. Barack Obama is the first African American president intended to negotiate substantial reduction in the world’s nuclear arsenals, on route to their eventual extinction. In October 2009, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”
