President Obama is a one term president because of his administration and policies.  His Obamacare, support of the Gay Rights Agenda, Illegal Immigration and none defense of the Marriage Act have been a few of the deal breakers for his core constituencies.

We used the president own words about a transparent government, no more secrecy, posting of bills online for 5 days before he signed, ending the hiring of lobbyists into the government, meetings between lobbyists and administration online, no pork barrel projects or corporate welfare.  He reneged on all of these promises without explanation.

He came on T.V. and scared the American people by claiming no Social Security, military, medicare checks would come of the debt ceiling were not lifted, a total fabrication of the facts.

Cong. Joe “You Lie” Wilson was vindicated last week when the Obama administration issued medical and healthcare grants to illegals.

Gen. Bolden was ordered by Obama to bring the Muslims into the space program as his top priority while ending our manned missions.

The prez kicked of his campaign in a border town praising illegals attempts to come to our country and said he would do all he could to help make them citizens and jump over the gators in the moat.

Cong. Waters said the Tea Party could go to hell and that is her district South Central Los Angeles I have been there many times over the years.

Think About It This Way with Charles Butler 08202011


This week’s show was outstanding!

I discussed the visceral and intellectual reaction I had with other people viewing the movie The Heat.  The movie was outstanding in every regard especially the realism of the period.  It was a wonderful movie and provided some insight in the lives of these women.  An aspect that wasn’t discussed in the movie was the rape and nonconsensual sex that domestic work exposed these women too.  The ony book that deals with this from a historical perspective is “At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance–A New History of the Civil Rights Movement from Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power” by Danielle McGuire.

Mr. Johnny Taylor, President of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, discussed the new demographic of white students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  It was informative and enlightening and far too short.

Michael Steele, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and MSNBC contributor was on the show providing insight and analysis about the Iowa races, and President Obama’s blame game.

Listen In!

My show was back to the high energy level of the past.  We had some of the best guests dealing with topics and issues that are of interest to Americans.

Mr. Curtis Dubay, Senior Policy Analyst, from the Heritage Foundation, he discussed debt ceiling and the consequences for the average American.  He commented that President Obama used emotional scare tactics to try to force the Congress to capitulate to tax increases and the business class and funding of Obamacare.

Oklahoma State Rep. Terrell and Oklahoma Senator Shorty, discussed the House Bill that virtually stopped financial support and the employment of illegal people in their state.  The illegals are heading to the sanctuary state of Illinois.

I discussed the Tea Baby comment in the context of the government jargon for a project that is all mucked up and you can not get unstuck from it.  “Your Boy!” comment by Pat Buchanan and the reaction by Rev. Al Sharpton.

Mr. Steve Beamon was on point about the President’s policies and scare tactics of no paychecks for the military, social security, and other payments to people and agencies.

Mr. Eric Voogd, called from the road to report on his attendance at the straw poll in Iowa for the Chicago Tea Party Patriots.  He need a great job of informing us about the atmosphere.

We discussed some serious topics and consequences of a slow economy.  Tom provide the real world insight about small and mid-size businesses situation and skepticism about the near future.  The new policies from Obamacare, the Frank-Dobb Act, and an uncertain tax environment makes for low confidence in the government and the economy.

Chris Ferrell of Judicial Watch discussed voter identification laws and fraud.  He noted that in various surveys over 80% of the people cross all demographics support voter identification laws.

Open Letter to Ben Jealous, President of NAACP

August 7, 2011

To:    Mr. Benjamin Jealous, President NAACP

Mr. Hilary Shelton, NAACP National Spokesman

Ms. Chris Fleming, V.P. Communication


Dear Mr. Jealous:

I completed an interview this morning on the Craig Henne Show, where I tried to explain the need for Voter ID at the polls.  During my preparation I read your speech to the NAACP conference in Los Angeles last week and it became apparent to me what is wrong in Black America today.  I will sum it up succinctly lack of accountability, personal responsibility, moral character, and a sense of right and wrong.  I will only focus in the Voter ID laws in your speech.

Mr. Jealous, given your position as the President of the old civil rights organization in America, you need to check your facts on voter identification, registration, and ex-felon disenfranchisement.  During your speech to the national conference you made some very serious claims of racism and Jim Crowism that cannot be substantiated by the facts of the situation. It seems to me that it is common sense and logical to require Voter ID at the polls.  I have carried my identification to the polls every election for the last 40 years. Voter ID is NO — Jim Crow short version of a 2500-word document.

Your alarmist and inflammatory rhetoric is shameful and without merit on Voter ID. Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus, and you are totally out of synch with Black Americans on Voter ID, School Vouchers, and amnesty for Illegal Immigrants. Most Americans regardless of ethnicity want an opportunity for all Americans to prosper in our great country.  Dr. King would side with me in this debate about Voter ID and fraud because it is fair, legal and without question democratic.  If some people don’t want to vote, it is their right too!  It is harder not to possess a state issued government identification, than to possess one, FACT!

You failed to mention that last April, Lessadolla Sowers, a member of the NAACP Executive Committee in Tunica County MS was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots to run concurrently. She was previously convicted and jailed for passing bad checks.  Nationally, the NAACP involvement in voter fraud cases is growing, and while not to the levels of ACORN, any impropriety it is a blemish on the impeccable reputation of such a great civil right institution.

I challenge you to appear on my show Think About It This Way with Charles Butler on AM560 WIND this Saturday, Aug 6th at 6pm and discuss Voter ID. It promises to be spirited, educational, and enlightening for your members and our audience.

The Ex-Felon Disenfranchisement mystic shows the Black leadership/elites continued romanticism and glorification of the criminal element in our community.  The Black intelligentsia treats these violent criminals as oppressed victims of Democracy, when their victims over 99% of time are a law-abiding black person. The focus on ex-felons is a backwards and non-productive effort by black politicians, social workers, and the clergy.  Instead of focusing on the better people in the race, you reach out for the corrupted and dysfunctional of the race.  Totally unbelievable.

In summary, your speech at the conference shows the digression from the forward thinking, democracy oriented leadership that has been the tradition of the NAACP, integration into American society as equal citizens.  Now the NAACP has sided with illegal immigration forces in a misguided allegiance much like the Black-Jewish allegiance of the post-Niagara Movement, that created the NAACP and a divergence from economic development and empowerment and self-help to vulnerable dependence on integration into the American society, workforce and business; that did not come until 1969 under President Nixon, Sec. George Shultz, and Dr. Arthur Fletcher launched the Philadelphia Plan, the forerunner of Affirmative Action.

I can be reached at 312-545-9565, and I will hold the hour open until Thursday 4:00pm CDT.

Best regards, Charles Butler

The Debt Ceiling Voting Fiasco

August 2, 2011

We watched the circus in Washington DC over the last two weeks conclude in the House passing a bill to increase the debt ceiling by a margin of 269 to 167. We are waiting for the Senate vote this afternoon. The bills on the table failed to address two key components entitlement reform and tax reform. Reducing the debt by $1 trillion over ten year, is like taking two buckets of water out of an Olympic size swimming pool every day, and say would try again to get in ten years.

The circus around the voting on the debt ceiling, pushed jobs and the wars to the back pages of the new cycles. Last week, Democratic supporter and businessman Mr. Steve Wynn Las Vegas said that he and other CEOs are holding onto their money and not making any moves that would positively affect the economy giving the nature of the socialist policies of President Obama. He had the courage to say publicly what others CEO’s are saying in private.

Pres. Obama appeared on prime time television last week and purposely mislead the American people about the consequences of not raising the debt ceiling. We have heard Congressman raise the same alarm and supported the President’s premise that Social Security checks to the elderly would not be paid, Medicaid and Medicare payments would stop, monies to students would not be distributed, infrastructure projects would not receive funds.

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth, if the Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling what will happen is the credit rating agencies Moody’s, A.M. Best, and the like, will lower our AAA rating, which means we will pay a higher interest rates. The analogy is a person with a lower credit rating pays higher finance charges to borrow money for a mortgage, for a car payment, to finance credit cards.

The Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Management and Budget, the House and Senate budget committees, and they all state that we have the money to continue pay our bills.

Congressman Joe Walsh, from Illinois is the only Congressman that challenged the president’s claim publicly. The exchange Congressman Walsh had with Rev. Al Sharpton on MS NBC, where he said, “the president has no shame” was far more enlightening than the exchange with Chris Matthews. So please take a moment to review the video clip with Rev. Al Sharpton.

Many of those private jets owners donated to Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign and keep the economy growing. It is a form of business transportation not a toy or prop luxurious prop. Who in the Obama Administration would understand business and commerce?

The real argument is that Congress, needs to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act, better known as Obamacare and make immediate amendments to the tax code for lower corporations taxes, allow them to bring overseas profits back into America without being taxed. Then reform entitlements and pay back the funds borrowed from the Social Security Trust Fund.

There are a number of issues that are impacting the spending budget, the Afghanistan and Iraqi wars, the impact of 15 to 30,000,000 illegal immigrants, foreign aid spending, and last but not least defense spending programs that we could defer and pork barrel projects for all congressional districts.

Pres. Obama and the Congress have unnecessarily scared the elderly, students, pensioners, and the average citizen that doesn’t understand how the debt-ceiling vote affects their lives. We need to educate, and have citizens hold their respective representatives accountable for supporting the deception.
