Obama's ideology is that of a moderate democrat. He's no lefty.

A moderate Democrat with a pen and a phone who delights in usurping Congress at his whim. Where is the moderation in a President who treats his own centerpiece legislation as a guideline to be postponed or illegally waived for the benefit of his cronies? It is nowhere to be found. But the "fundamental transformation requires both less than Obama radicalism.

What planet have you been on for the last 5.5 years? Obama is a hard core Marxist and always has been. Have you no knowledge of his background prior to becoming president?

I've never understood why Democrats are afraid to admit to their own ideology. They pitch these far-left ideas and visions, but want to pretend their centrists or moderates.

Stand up and e proud of who you are. Don't be ashamed of it. If your views are way the f*ck out in left field - own it.

As Marx wrote socialism is the transitional phase between capitalism and communism. Contemporary Democrats do not advocate communism but the fundamental transformation of America is certainly a move towards that transitional step of socialism. Under Obama's pen and phone Presidency investing extraordinary power in the Leader we see the fascist character of Progressive socialism.

Debo Adegbile and Catherine Lhamon were both appointed to U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, a six year term. The Center for American Progress applaud the controversial appointments.



Obama appoints Mumia Abu-Jamal's lawyer Debo Adegbile to civil rights commission - Washington Times


In a move sure to fray his relations with law enforcement, President Obama on Thursday appointed Debo Adegbile, a former attorney for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, to a six-year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Mr. Adegbile worked at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund when he represented Abu-Jamal in the appeal of his conviction and death sentence for the notorious 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal’s sentence was reduced to life in prison.
The case prompted the Senate to reject Mr. Adegbile’s nomination in 2014 when Mr. Obama appointed him to lead the Justice Department’s office on civil rights. Some Democrats joined Republicans in voting down the selection at that time.
Liberals praised the latest nomination. The Center for American Progress cited Mr. Adegbile’s “work on employment, housing discrimination, criminal justice and voting rights.”
Mr. Obama also appointed Catherine Lhamon, assistant secretary for civil rights at the Education Department, to a six-year seat on the commission. She drew the ire of Republican lawmakers in 2011 for issuing a “dear colleague” letter to colleges advising them to lower their standards for judging students accused of sexual harassment of bullying, touching off a dispute in Congress over the legal authority of the letter.
The Center for American Progress praised both appointees as “individuals with a long and proven history of commitment to the advancement civil rights.”

The Senate’s rejection of Mr. Adegbile on a 52-47 vote in 2014 marked the first time that the Senate rejected one of Mr. Obama’s nominees since Democrats changed filibuster rules to require only a simple majority for presidential nominations, an easier threshold that the Adegbile pick still failed.
Mr. Adegbile drew opposition from national law enforcement organizations as well as a bipartisan group of senators for his involvement with Abu-Jamal, who became a cause celebre from his prison cell.
After the nomination was defeated, Mr. Obama called the vote a “travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant.”
“Those who voted against his nomination denied the American people an outstanding public servant,” Mr. Obama said.
At the time, Sen. Patrick J. Toomey, Pennsylvania Republican, said Mr. Adegbile had “decided to join a political cause. … And in my view, by doing so, he demonstrated his own contempt for — and frankly a willingness to undermine — the criminal justice system of the United States.”
“I do not believe that Mr. Adegbile’s nomination is consistent with justice for the family of officer Danny Faulkner or for anyone else that cares about the law enforcement community,” Mr. Toomey said at the time.
The eight-member civil rights commission consists of four members appointed by the president and four appointed by Congress. The six-year appointments are not subject to Senate confirmation.
The commission is an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency with a mission to “inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance enforcement of federal civil rights laws,” according to its website.
