If you missed yesterday's post, check it out. Regarding the newly released 2007 Obama video, (John Nolte) made the list below of what is important to note. The news we see and hear is going to do everything in their power to smooth out everything that is wrong with this video, but it is important to fully examine the words that were coming out of our president's mouth before news organization begin twisting it all up, or choose to not report on it at all. This video, among many other things, failed to be reported leading up to the 2008 presidential election and it is a shame that they are only now surfacing. By the time November 6 arrives I have a feeling there may be an electoral consensus that Barack Obama never should have made it to the Democratic primaries to begin with.

1. The video released by the Daily Caller last night does include footage the media never broadcast or reported on.
Furthermore, we're supposed to believe it's just a coincidence that the footage the media ignored just happens to be the most controversial part, where Barack Obama (who at the time was running to be the Democratic nominee for president) goes off-script and tells a majority black audience that the federal government doesn't care about Hurricane Katrina victims because they're black.
Even Politico's mainstream media water-carrier Dylan Byers had to admit this is the case:
But the full footage of the speech included previously unreported remarks in which Sen. Obama suggested that the federal government helped victims of 9/11 and Hurricane Andrew (in Florida), but did not help the victims of Hurricane Katrina because it didn't care about them as much.
By any measure, new video of a sitting president sewing seeds of racial division is not only news, but big news.
If this were Allen West giving the exact same speech, you better believe it would be everywhere. And he's only a congressman.

2. Now we know the media and the Obama campaign "selectively edited" the video in 2007 in order to cover up Obama's divisive racial rhetoric.
That's most certainly news.

3. Past is prologue. Always.
Obama's attacks on the suburbs and the "us vs. them" rhetoric that toxifies the entire speech helps make sense of his divisive presidency and campaign. Moreover, the speech that made Obama a national star was his 2004 address at the Democratic Convention where he was famously unifying and post-racial. That was his "no red states, no blue states" speech.
Now we know the 2004 speech was bull shit.
That's news.

4. Obama grew up in Hawaii and Chicago, so where in the world does that hilariously fake southern accent come from?
Like a lot of politicians, depending on the audience he's with, this president can be a huge phony.
I'm a news and political junkie and never once have I heard him speak with this pronounced a southern accent. So…
That's news to me, and probably to a lot of people.

5. In order to stoke racial division and resentment, Obama lied to his audience.
The then-U.S. Senator tells the audience that the federal government waived the Stafford Act for New York after 9/11 and for Florida after Hurricane Andrew, but not for New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
That was a lie:
[T]he federal government did at times waive the Stafford Act during its reconstruction efforts. On May 25, 2007, just weeks before the speech, the Bush administration sent an additional $6.9 billion to Katrina-affected areas with no strings attached.
As a sitting United States Senator, Obama must have been aware of this. And yet he spent 36 minutes at the pulpit telling a mostly black audience that the U.S. government doesn’t like them because they’re black.
Which leads me to…

6. Obama is prone to believing and spreading dishonest and wildly false conspiracy theories.
You know, like Kanye West.
That's news.

7. At the 19:20 mark we learn that the Christian Obama doesn't know the Lord's Prayer.
That's news.

8. Obama's "us vs. them" rhetoric and beliefs extends to his governance.
 At the 28:50 mark, Obama talks extensively about the importance of minority-owned businesses and supporting your own. He then proposes using the Small Business Administration specifically to aid minorities.
That's news.

9. At the 20:10 mark, Obama laments the social injustice that created 37 million Americans living in poverty and pledges to fight that injustice as president.
After four years of Obamanomics, we now have 10 million more Americans living in poverty.
That's news.

10.  When Obama gave this speech, the Reverend Wright scandal had yet to break.
This means that the scant, incomplete, and "selectively edited" coverage the speech received at the time wouldn't have thought much of the full minute Obama spends gushing over his mentor and pastor in his opening remarks.
Knowing what we know now makes this, yes, news.
The corrupt media knows this newly released footage is news. They just don't want voters to see Obama for what he is: a phony, divisive, racial demagogue and grievance-monger ready to spread lies, conspiracy theories, and animosity in order to get what he wants.
Oh, I almost forgot…
11. We know it's news because the corrupt media is telling us there's nothing to see here, even as they kill themselves to blow it back on Romney and ensure as few people as possible see it. 
First debate tonight. Let's get it on!

(Watching the debate as I type---"trickle-down government"---brilliant!)
