Obama already has a ‘kill switch’ over the media with his ability to send Presidential Alerts. One report states that actual physical devices have been placed at broadcasting stations that gives the feds the ability bypasses their systems. After he signs some executive order dictating how the media should report, our Dictator-In-Chief cansimply turn off any station that doesn’t deliver the message he wants.
After seven failed years, to watch Obama sit there and discuss the poor as though he is part of the solution and not the problem, is laughable.
And let’s not forget that Obama knows nothing about poverty. He has lived a privileged life.
Obama attended prep schools as a child, lived with his well-to-do grandparents in Honolulu as a teen, where he attended Panahou, a fancy private school. Both of his grandparents were well educated; she even worked as the vice president of a bank. For a time, Obama had a nanny! From there Obama attended Occidental College in California, was well off enough to visit Pakistan for 3 weeks; he then attended two of the most prestigious colleges in the country: Columbia and Harvard.
The closest Obama has ever come to experiencing anything close to poverty was during his time as a community organizer in Chicago. And in that dynamic, the poor were just pawns for Obama to manipulate to achieve his political ambitions.
Obama knows nothing of struggle, or what life is like for those who do. And after 7 years of his failed economic policies, we also know he doesn’t give a damn enough about the poor to change his policies in a way that might actually help them.
Obama likes poor people fine — he likes them dependent on the government.
He also likes the news media to do what it’s told.
