PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you very much. Good afternoon. I am honored to be in the timeless city of Cairo, and to be hosted by two remarkable institutions. For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning; and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement. And together, you represent the harmony between tradition and progress. I’m grateful for your hospitality, and the hospitality of the people of Egypt. And I’m also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: Assalaamu alaykum. (Applause.)

We meet at a time of great tension between the United States and Muslims around the world — tension rooted in historical forces that go beyond any current policy debate. The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars. More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam.

Violent extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority of Muslims. The attacks of September 11, 2001 and the continued efforts of these extremists to engage in violence against civilians has led some in my country to view Islam as inevitably hostile not only to America and Western countries, but also to human rights. All this has bred more fear and more mistrust.

So long as our relationship is defined by our differences, we will empower those who sow hatred rather than peace, those who promote conflict rather than the cooperation that can help all of our people achieve justice and prosperity. And this cycle of suspicion and discord must end.

I’ve come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles — principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.

I do so recognizing that change cannot happen overnight. I know there’s been a lot of publicity about this speech, but no single speech can eradicate years of mistrust, nor can I answer in the time that I have this afternoon all the complex questions that brought us to this point. But I am convinced that in order to move forward, we must say openly to each other the things we hold in our hearts and that too often are said only behind closed doors. There must be a sustained effort to listen to each other; to learn from each other; to respect one another; and to seek common ground. As the Holy Koran tells us, “Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.” (Applause.) That is what I will try to do today — to speak the truth as best I can, humbled by the task before us, and firm in my belief that the interests we share as human beings are far more powerful than the forces that drive us apart.

Now part of this conviction is rooted in my own experience. I’m a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and at the fall of dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.

As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam. It was Islam — at places like Al-Azhar — that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities — (applause) — it was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation. And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. (Applause.)

I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President, John Adams, wrote, “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.” And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, they have served in our government, they have stood for civil rights, they have started businesses, they have taught at our universities, they’ve excelled in our sports arenas, they’ve won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch. And when the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers — Thomas Jefferson — kept in his personal library. (Applause.)

So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. (Applause.)

But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America. (Applause.) Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire. The United States has been one of the greatest sources of progress that the world has ever known. We were born out of revolution against an empire. We were founded upon the ideal that all are created equal, and we have shed blood and struggled for centuries to give meaning to those words — within our borders, and around the world. We are shaped by every culture, drawn from every end of the Earth, and dedicated to a simple concept: E pluribus unum — “Out of many, one.”

Now, much has been made of the fact that an African American with the name Barack Hussein Obama could be elected President. (Applause.) But my personal story is not so unique. The dream of opportunity for all people has not come true for everyone in America, but its promise exists for all who come to our shores — and that includes nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country today who, by the way, enjoy incomes and educational levels that are higher than the American average. (Applause.)

Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state in our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That’s why the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it. (Applause.)

So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America. And I believe that America holds within her the truth that regardless of race, religion, or station in life, all of us share common aspirations — to live in peace and security; to get an education and to work with dignity; to love our families, our communities, and our God. These things we share. This is the hope of all humanity.

Of course, recognizing our common humanity is only the beginning of our task. Words alone cannot meet the needs of our people. These needs will be met only if we act boldly in the years ahead; and if we understand that the challenges we face are shared, and our failure to meet them will hurt us all.

For we have learned from recent experience that when a financial system weakens in one country, prosperity is hurt everywhere. When a new flu infects one human being, all are at risk. When one nation pursues a nuclear weapon, the risk of nuclear attack rises for all nations. When violent extremists operate in one stretch of mountains, people are endangered across an ocean. When innocents in Bosnia and Darfur are slaughtered, that is a stain on our collective conscience. (Applause.) That is what it means to share this world in the 21st century. That is the responsibility we have to one another as human beings.

And this is a difficult responsibility to embrace. For human history has often been a record of nations and tribes — and, yes, religions — subjugating one another in pursuit of their own interests. Yet in this new age, such attitudes are self-defeating. Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail. So whatever we think of the past, we must not be prisoners to it. Our problems must be dealt with through partnership; our progress must be shared. (Applause.)

Now, that does not mean we should ignore sources of tension. Indeed, it suggests the opposite: We must face these tensions squarely. And so in that spirit, let me speak as clearly and as plainly as I can about some specific issues that I believe we must finally confront together.

The first issue that we have to confront is violent extremism in all of its forms.

In Ankara, I made clear that America is not — and never will be — at war with Islam. (Applause.) We will, however, relentlessly confront violent extremists who pose a grave threat to our security — because we reject the same thing that people of all faiths reject: the killing of innocent men, women, and children. And it is my first duty as President to protect the American people.

The situation in Afghanistan demonstrates America’s goals, and our need to work together. Over seven years ago, the United States pursued al Qaeda and the Taliban with broad international support. We did not go by choice; we went because of necessity. I’m aware that there’s still some who would question or even justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. They have affiliates in many countries and are trying to expand their reach. These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with.

Now, make no mistake: We do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan. We see no military — we seek no military bases there. It is agonizing for America to lose our young men and women. It is costly and politically difficult to continue this conflict. We would gladly bring every single one of our troops home if we could be confident that there were not violent extremists in Afghanistan and now Pakistan determined to kill as many Americans as they possibly can. But that is not yet the case.

And that’s why we’re partnering with a coalition of 46 countries. And despite the costs involved, America’s commitment will not weaken. Indeed, none of us should tolerate these extremists. They have killed in many countries. They have killed people of different faiths — but more than any other, they have killed Muslims. Their actions are irreconcilable with the rights of human beings, the progress of nations, and with Islam. The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent is as — it is as if he has killed all mankind. (Applause.) And the Holy Koran also says whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind. (Applause.) The enduring faith of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few. Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism — it is an important part of promoting peace.

Now, we also know that military power alone is not going to solve the problems in Afghanistan and Pakistan. That’s why we plan to invest $1.5 billion each year over the next five years to partner with Pakistanis to build schools and hospitals, roads and businesses, and hundreds of millions to help those who’ve been displaced. That’s why we are providing more than $2.8 billion to help Afghans develop their economy and deliver services that people depend on.

Let me also address the issue of Iraq. Unlike Afghanistan, Iraq was a war of choice that provoked strong differences in my country and around the world. Although I believe that the Iraqi people are ultimately better off without the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, I also believe that events in Iraq have reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible. (Applause.) Indeed, we can recall the words of Thomas Jefferson, who said: “I hope that our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us that the less we use our power the greater it will be.”

Today, America has a dual responsibility: to help Iraq forge a better future — and to leave Iraq to Iraqis. And I have made it clear to the Iraqi people — (applause) — I have made it clear to the Iraqi people that we pursue no bases, and no claim on their territory or resources. Iraq’s sovereignty is its own. And that’s why I ordered the removal of our combat brigades by next August. That is why we will honor our agreement with Iraq’s democratically elected government to remove combat troops from Iraqi cities by July, and to remove all of our troops from Iraq by 2012. (Applause.) We will help Iraq train its security forces and develop its economy. But we will support a secure and united Iraq as a partner, and never as a patron.

And finally, just as America can never tolerate violence by extremists, we must never alter or forget our principles. Nine-eleven was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our traditions and our ideals. We are taking concrete actions to change course. I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States, and I have ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed by early next year. (Applause.)

So America will defend itself, respectful of the sovereignty of nations and the rule of law. And we will do so in partnership with Muslim communities which are also threatened. The sooner the extremists are isolated and unwelcome in Muslim communities, the sooner we will all be safer.

The second major source of tension that we need to discuss is the situation between Israelis, Palestinians and the Arab world.
America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.

Around the world, the Jewish people were persecuted for centuries, and anti-Semitism in Europe culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust. Tomorrow, I will visit Buchenwald, which was part of a network of camps where Jews were enslaved, tortured, shot and gassed to death by the Third Reich. Six million Jews were killed — more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, it is ignorant, and it is hateful. Threatening Israel with destruction — or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews — is deeply wrong, and only serves to evoke in the minds of Israelis this most painful of memories while preventing the peace that the people of this region deserve.

On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than 60 years they’ve endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations — large and small — that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. And America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own. (Applause.)

For decades then, there has been a stalemate: two peoples with legitimate aspirations, each with a painful history that makes compromise elusive. It’s easy to point fingers — for Palestinians to point to the displacement brought about by Israel’s founding, and for Israelis to point to the constant hostility and attacks throughout its history from within its borders as well as beyond. But if we see this conflict only from one side or the other, then we will be blind to the truth: The only resolution is for the aspirations of both sides to be met through two states, where Israelis and Palestinians each live in peace and security. (Applause.)

That is in Israel’s interest, Palestine’s interest, America’s interest, and the world’s interest. And that is why I intend to personally pursue this outcome with all the patience and dedication that the task requires. (Applause.) The obligations — the obligations that the parties have agreed to under the road map are clear. For peace to come, it is time for them — and all of us — to live up to our responsibilities.

Palestinians must abandon violence. Resistance through violence and killing is wrong and it does not succeed. For centuries, black people in America suffered the lash of the whip as slaves and the humiliation of segregation. But it was not violence that won full and equal rights. It was a peaceful and determined insistence upon the ideals at the center of America’s founding. This same story can be told by people from South Africa to South Asia; from Eastern Europe to Indonesia. It’s a story with a simple truth: that violence is a dead end. It is a sign neither of courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. That’s not how moral authority is claimed; that’s how it is surrendered.

Now is the time for Palestinians to focus on what they can build. The Palestinian Authority must develop its capacity to govern, with institutions that serve the needs of its people. Hamas does have support among some Palestinians, but they also have to recognize they have responsibilities. To play a role in fulfilling Palestinian aspirations, to unify the Palestinian people, Hamas must put an end to violence, recognize past agreements, recognize Israel’s right to exist.

At the same time, Israelis must acknowledge that just as Israel’s right to exist cannot be denied, neither can Palestine’s. The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. (Applause.) This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop. (Applause.)

And Israel must also live up to its obligation to ensure that Palestinians can live and work and develop their society. Just as it devastates Palestinian families, the continuing humanitarian crisis in Gaza does not serve Israel’s security; neither does the continuing lack of opportunity in the West Bank. Progress in the daily lives of the Palestinian people must be a critical part of a road to peace, and Israel must take concrete steps to enable such progress.

And finally, the Arab states must recognize that the Arab Peace Initiative was an important beginning, but not the end of their responsibilities. The Arab-Israeli conflict should no longer be used to distract the people of Arab nations from other problems. Instead, it must be a cause for action to help the Palestinian people develop the institutions that will sustain their state, to recognize Israel’s legitimacy, and to choose progress over a self-defeating focus on the past.

America will align our policies with those who pursue peace, and we will say in public what we say in private to Israelis and Palestinians and Arabs. (Applause.) We cannot impose peace. But privately, many Muslims recognize that Israel will not go away. Likewise, many Israelis recognize the need for a Palestinian state. It is time for us to act on what everyone knows to be true.

Too many tears have been shed. Too much blood has been shed. All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)

The third source of tension is our shared interest in the rights and responsibilities of nations on nuclear weapons.

This issue has been a source of tension between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran. For many years, Iran has defined itself in part by its opposition to my country, and there is in fact a tumultuous history between us. In the middle of the Cold War, the United States played a role in the overthrow of a democratically elected Iranian government. Since the Islamic Revolution, Iran has played a role in acts of hostage-taking and violence against U.S. troops and civilians. This history is well known. Rather than remain trapped in the past, I’ve made it clear to Iran’s leaders and people that my country is prepared to move forward. The question now is not what Iran is against, but rather what future it wants to build.

I recognize it will be hard to overcome decades of mistrust, but we will proceed with courage, rectitude, and resolve. There will be many issues to discuss between our two countries, and we are willing to move forward without preconditions on the basis of mutual respect. But it is clear to all concerned that when it comes to nuclear weapons, we have reached a decisive point. This is not simply about America’s interests. It’s about preventing a nuclear arms race in the Middle East that could lead this region and the world down a hugely dangerous path.

I understand those who protest that some countries have weapons that others do not. No single nation should pick and choose which nation holds nuclear weapons. And that’s why I strongly reaffirmed America’s commitment to seek a world in which no nations hold nuclear weapons. (Applause.) And any nation — including Iran — should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. That commitment is at the core of the treaty, and it must be kept for all who fully abide by it. And I’m hopeful that all countries in the region can share in this goal.

The fourth issue that I will address is democracy. (Applause.)

I know — I know there has been controversy about the promotion of democracy in recent years, and much of this controversy is connected to the war in Iraq. So let me be clear: No system of government can or should be imposed by one nation by any other.

That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that reflect the will of the people. Each nation gives life to this principle in its own way, grounded in the traditions of its own people. America does not presume to know what is best for everyone, just as we would not presume to pick the outcome of a peaceful election. But I do have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn’t steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. These are not just American ideas; they are human rights. And that is why we will support them everywhere. (Applause.)

Now, there is no straight line to realize this promise. But this much is clear: Governments that protect these rights are ultimately more stable, successful and secure. Suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. America respects the right of all peaceful and law-abiding voices to be heard around the world, even if we disagree with them. And we will welcome all elected, peaceful governments — provided they govern with respect for all their people.

This last point is important because there are some who advocate for democracy only when they’re out of power; once in power, they are ruthless in suppressing the rights of others. (Applause.) So no matter where it takes hold, government of the people and by the people sets a single standard for all who would hold power: You must maintain your power through consent, not coercion; you must respect the rights of minorities, and participate with a spirit of tolerance and compromise; you must place the interests of your people and the legitimate workings of the political process above your party. Without these ingredients, elections alone do not make true democracy.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Barack Obama, we love you!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you. (Applause.) The fifth issue that we must address together is religious freedom.

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition. I saw it firsthand as a child in Indonesia, where devout Christians worshiped freely in an overwhelmingly Muslim country. That is the spirit we need today. People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind and the heart and the soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive, but it’s being challenged in many different ways.

Among some Muslims, there’s a disturbing tendency to measure one’s own faith by the rejection of somebody else’s faith. The richness of religious diversity must be upheld — whether it is for Maronites in Lebanon or the Copts in Egypt. (Applause.) And if we are being honest, fault lines must be closed among Muslims, as well, as the divisions between Sunni and Shia have led to tragic violence, particularly in Iraq.

Freedom of religion is central to the ability of peoples to live together. We must always examine the ways in which we protect it. For instance, in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That’s why I’m committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.

Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit — for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We can’t disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.

In fact, faith should bring us together. And that’s why we’re forging service projects in America to bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That’s why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah’s interfaith dialogue and Turkey’s leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. Around the world, we can turn dialogue into interfaith service, so bridges between peoples lead to action — whether it is combating malaria in Africa, or providing relief after a natural disaster.

The sixth issue — the sixth issue that I want to address is women’s rights. (Applause.) I know –- I know — and you can tell from this audience, that there is a healthy debate about this issue. I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal, but I do believe that a woman who is denied an education is denied equality. (Applause.) And it is no coincidence that countries where women are well educated are far more likely to be prosperous.

Now, let me be clear: Issues of women’s equality are by no means simply an issue for Islam. In Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, we’ve seen Muslim-majority countries elect a woman to lead. Meanwhile, the struggle for women’s equality continues in many aspects of American life, and in countries around the world.

I am convinced that our daughters can contribute just as much to society as our sons. (Applause.) Our common prosperity will be advanced by allowing all humanity — men and women — to reach their full potential. I do not believe that women must make the same choices as men in order to be equal, and I respect those women who choose to live their lives in traditional roles. But it should be their choice. And that is why the United States will partner with any Muslim-majority country to support expanded literacy for girls, and to help young women pursue employment through micro-financing that helps people live their dreams. (Applause.)

Finally, I want to discuss economic development and opportunity.

I know that for many, the face of globalization is contradictory. The Internet and television can bring knowledge and information, but also offensive sexuality and mindless violence into the home. Trade can bring new wealth and opportunities, but also huge disruptions and change in communities. In all nations — including America — this change can bring fear. Fear that because of modernity we lose control over our economic choices, our politics, and most importantly our identities — those things we most cherish about our communities, our families, our traditions, and our faith.

But I also know that human progress cannot be denied. There need not be contradictions between development and tradition. Countries like Japan and South Korea grew their economies enormously while maintaining distinct cultures. The same is true for the astonishing progress within Muslim-majority countries from Kuala Lumpur to Dubai. In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.

And this is important because no development strategy can be based only upon what comes out of the ground, nor can it be sustained while young people are out of work. Many Gulf states have enjoyed great wealth as a consequence of oil, and some are beginning to focus it on broader development. But all of us must recognize that education and innovation will be the currency of the 21st century — (applause) — and in too many Muslim communities, there remains underinvestment in these areas. I’m emphasizing such investment within my own country. And while America in the past has focused on oil and gas when it comes to this part of the world, we now seek a broader engagement.

On education, we will expand exchange programs, and increase scholarships, like the one that brought my father to America. (Applause.) At the same time, we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities. And we will match promising Muslim students with internships in America; invest in online learning for teachers and children around the world; and create a new online network, so a young person in Kansas can communicate instantly with a young person in Cairo.

On economic development, we will create a new corps of business volunteers to partner with counterparts in Muslim-majority countries. And I will host a Summit on Entrepreneurship this year to identify how we can deepen ties between business leaders, foundations and social entrepreneurs in the United States and Muslim communities around the world.

On science and technology, we will launch a new fund to support technological development in Muslim-majority countries, and to help transfer ideas to the marketplace so they can create more jobs. We’ll open centers of scientific excellence in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and appoint new science envoys to collaborate on programs that develop new sources of energy, create green jobs, digitize records, clean water, grow new crops. Today I’m announcing a new global effort with the Organization of the Islamic Conference to eradicate polio. And we will also expand partnerships with Muslim communities to promote child and maternal health.

All these things must be done in partnership. Americans are ready to join with citizens and governments; community organizations, religious leaders, and businesses in Muslim communities around the world to help our people pursue a better life.

The issues that I have described will not be easy to address. But we have a responsibility to join together on behalf of the world that we seek — a world where extremists no longer threaten our people, and American troops have come home; a world where Israelis and Palestinians are each secure in a state of their own, and nuclear energy is used for peaceful purposes; a world where governments serve their citizens, and the rights of all God’s children are respected. Those are mutual interests. That is the world we seek. But we can only achieve it together.

I know there are many — Muslim and non-Muslim — who question whether we can forge this new beginning. Some are eager to stoke the flames of division, and to stand in the way of progress. Some suggest that it isn’t worth the effort — that we are fated to disagree, and civilizations are doomed to clash. Many more are simply skeptical that real change can occur. There’s so much fear, so much mistrust that has built up over the years. But if we choose to be bound by the past, we will never move forward. And I want to particularly say this to young people of every faith, in every country — you, more than anyone, have the ability to reimagine the world, to remake this world.

All of us share this world for but a brief moment in time. The question is whether we spend that time focused on what pushes us apart, or whether we commit ourselves to an effort — a sustained effort — to find common ground, to focus on the future we seek for our children, and to respect the dignity of all human beings.

It’s easier to start wars than to end them. It’s easier to blame others than to look inward. It’s easier to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right path, not just the easy path. There’s one rule that lies at the heart of every religion — that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. (Applause.) This truth transcends nations and peoples — a belief that isn’t new; that isn’t black or white or brown; that isn’t Christian or Muslim or Jew. It’s a belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization, and that still beats in the hearts of billions around the world. It’s a faith in other people, and it’s what brought me here today.

We have the power to make the world we seek, but only if we have the courage to make a new beginning, keeping in mind what has been written.

The Holy Koran tells us: “O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.”

The Talmud tells us: “The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace.”

The Holy Bible tells us: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” (Applause.)

The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God’s vision. Now that must be our work here on Earth.

Thank you. And may God’s peace be upon you. Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.)

Rush Limbaugh: The Obamas Party Like Royalty (Transcript)

RUSH: This guy Obama is so out of touch — he is so devoid of reality, living in such a self created fantasy world, so full of himself and his own lies — that he’s starting to believe all of his own BS. To go out and campaign at a Ford plant and take credit for their jobs? They didn’t get any bailout money.Ford is surviving in spite of Obama, as is everybody else in this country who is succeeding. Whoever is enjoying success, whoever is making a go of it is doing so in spite of Obama. He’s jetting all over the place, his wife is jetting all over the place, ordering special food and special clothes, vacationing every other week. Four vacations in July alone! See, Obama and his wife don’t understand what everyone is complaining about. They have never had it so good. They don’t want for anything. They don’t even pay for anything. In fact, they look at it as though they are owed this. They are owed this. They have been shafted all of their lives because of racial discrimination, because of being a minority. This is the first time Michelle Obama is proud of her country, when her husband was running for office.Now, “Okay, fine, it’s our turn.” Like Marion Barry said; “Tonight we are on the inside.” They are on the inside now, flying all over the country while everyone else is tightening their belts, because they deserve it. This is owed to them — and they want to be thanked for all of their efforts on our behalf? They want our appreciation and adulation? They want to be thanked far taking your paycheck and giving it to the politicians and bureaucrats who then spread it around like confetti to their friends and special interests? Another $26 billion for the NEA, another $26 billion dollars to bail out teachers and pensions? And they want thanks? They want praise? They are able to take your money, give it to the SEIU, the NEA, community activists, federal bureaucrats, state bureaucrats, and you dare complain about it?

“How dare you complain, Limbaugh? Obama is doing great for people. Yeah! Bush never did this great. Run against Bush. That’s right. Run against Bush and everybody will vote for Obama and vote for the Democrats because they hate Bush.” Right. The ruling class is out having a party. The wealthiest three counties in the country right now right are outside Washington DC. The ruling class is having a big party, partying like never before. The Obamas are living it up. Concerts at the White House, top chefs cooking for them, flying in from all over the country. Meanwhile, they preach a hatred of capitalism. They preach a hatred against profit.

They insist that you “sacrifice,” that you rebalance and reset your lives, that you adjust, that you realize the salad days are over, that the days of America leading the world economically are over. The days of you getting all kinds of credit card loans and so forth and living a nice life, those days are over. You have to pay the piper. Michelle has a beach close down in Spain after taking 40 of her best friends and leasing 60 rooms in a five-star hotel, paid for by you, because they deserve it. But you have to pay. You have to pay up. They preach against capitalism while living off of it. The Obamas have not done a day’s worth of work in their lives to generate this kind of lifestyle for themselves.

They are living off of you and every one of us. “What do you mean, Rush? He wrote a bunch of books.” Okay, he wrote a couple of books. Even that, a couple of autobiographies by age 40? “Yeah, Rush, yeah. They really sold well.” Okay, fine. So he had an iron butt for a couple of years to write a couple of books. I’m not even going to the place where he didn’t write them. The point is they are living a lifestyle they have not earned, and they are living it off the taxpayers while criticizing the very system that enables them to live this way: $100 Kobe beef as appetizers at White House parties? The American people do not like this kind of arrogance. The American people do not like this kind of craziness.

The American people will deal with this in November. So, Mr. Obama and Ms. Borger and the rest of you in the partisan political operative media, if you want to go run around saying that running against George W Bush is a ticket, “That’s the ticket,” you go right ahead. You have already demonstrated how out of touch you are with the real people of this country who make it work. Stocks are tumbling today. They’re down, last I looked at it, to 136. That is another reason to party. Happy days are here again! The stock market is down. Think of all those pension plans and college plans losing value. Thank you, Mr. President! Yes, we’re just as excited as we can be because of all this great economic news keeps happening. Happy days are here again!


RUSH: Now, I don’t know. You probably haven’t heard about this. In the latest Carville-Greenberg poll by James Carville, Stan Greenberg (Democracy Corps is the name of their company), they say that disapproval rates for Obama are now at “revolution levels.” The only question is, are they talking about the American Revolution or the French Revolution. We have Michelle Antoinette Obama running around Spain. King Louie Obama the Second is here. It could be both. Revolution levels. Pat Caddell, Democrat pollster and Doug Schoen, Democrat pollster for Clinton, are going on Fox News saying the Democrats had better wake up. They do not understand what is happening. (I think a lot of them do.) There is dissatisfaction with the Democrat Party and it has nothing to do with George W. Bush. I remember how the State-Controlled Media turned up its nose at Bush’s record employment growth.

They called all those jobs “hamburger-flipping jobs.” People forget that unemployment got down to 4.7%. This is after September 11. We came out of a recession and then had 9/11, another mini recession. The Bush tax cuts of 2001-2003 kick in and we have burgeoning economic growth. Nobody is complaining about the economy at all except the media trying to create in people’s minds that we’re headed for a recession. We hit 5% unemployment and they started to talking, “Oh, this is horrible, absolutely horrible! The bottom is falling out.” We’re at 9.5% and we have “a weak recovery.” (Gasp!) Isn’t that wonderful? It’s 9.5% and there’s a future out there. It’s 9.5% and happy days are here again. All during the 2000s, the first decade of this century, State-Controlled Media was turning up its nose at Bush’s record of employment growth. “Eh, they’re just hamburger-flipper jobs.” I remember Pelosi specifically running down and making fun of “hamburger-flipper jobs.” These people have a rude awakening coming in November and they know it.

RUSH: I got an e-mail: “Rush, do you remember when you went to the White House for your birthday a couple years ago and Bush hosted you? You ought to tell that story.” It’s in contrast to Michelle (My Belle) Antoinette Obama flying over to Spain, 60 rooms in a five-star hotel paid for by all of us, along with 40 of her friends. Obama with all the parties in the White House, all the Kobe beef. While everybody else is tightening their belts, the Obamas are living large because they think it’s owed them. Like Marion Barry said once at the Democrat Convention in 1984 when he was mayor of Washington, in San Francisco making a speech: “Tonight we’re on the inside.” So the Obamas, yeah. Michelle (My Belle) Obama, the first time she was ever proud of her country her whole life was when her husband was running for president. Now they are in there and taking what they can get. It’s owed them. The story is this. This was Tuesday January 12, my birthday. This is the week before Obama was to be immaculated.

The president had me up for one of these farewell lunches. It was in the dining room off the Oval Office. They had called the day before, a couple days before, asking for my menu selections. I said, “Well, what do I order? “Whatever you want, Mr. Limbaugh.” So I listed off a couple things, three things. So we show up, have a little conversation in the Oval Office. It’s the president, Ed Gillespie and me. We move into the dining room. The stewards come out and start taking everybody’s orders. I said, “Well, I thought I did this three days ago.” So they started bringing things that we had not ordered in addition to what I had ordered. It looked like I was King Henry VIII there. There was food upon food upon food in front of me. The president tells the steward, “I want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and make it grape. I don’t want any of that red stuff.” The hated and reviled and out-of-touch George W. Bush ordered a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, “and make sure it’s grape. I don’t want any of that red stuff.” Meanwhile, here we have the Obamas doing their impersonations of King Louie “Fowteenth” and Marie Antoinette. (interruption)

Well, I took a tour of Versailles once, the Palace of Versailles, and the tour guide spoke broken English, and I found out that in French can’t say “four.” So Louie the Fourteenth was Louie the Fowteetnth. Louie the XIV. Anyway, the Obamas are up doing this French Revolution business, living large, and Bush was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. “Grape. Don’t bring me any of the red stuff.” And then when it was all over they brought a birthday cake out. Actually, it wasn’t a cake. It was a chocolate microphone, an EIB microphone in the shape, chocolate in the shape of a microphone — and he and Gillespie are singing happy birthday to me and the White House stewards are singing happy birthday. It was a microphone. It was a chocolate microphone, Snerdley. It was a model of the Golden EIB Microphone. It was not a cake. It was chocolate — and, yes, it was a microphone. It had the microphone boom and everything. And they brought the guy out who had made it, the chef, the pastry chef. They brought him out and he said hello. The guy remembered this because it is a good contrast over the way the supposed man of the people Democrats, Obama, and so forth. These guys have an aristocracy going on. The Obamas are doing an aristocracy. (interruption)

Yes, Dawn. I know who he is trying to sucker me into doing and I’m not going there. I’m not. I’m not. It was a microphone. It was a six- or seven-inch chocolate microphone. Eight or nine. Whatever this microphone is. I have pictures of it too. We have pictures. They sent a picture. I have it. Is it here or do I have it somewhere at home? I think it’s at home. I have it framed at home in my, in my library. It’s really… I was floored. I was flabbergasted. I didn’t even know that they knew it was my birthday. I mean, when they invited me up there, I didn’t say, “Oh, yeah, I’d love to come. By the way, do you know, Ed, it’s my birthday? Hint, hint?” I don’t do that. I guess at the White House they know everything. Patriot Act. Remember, Bush was spying on everybody, intercepting our phone calls. Remember that? (interruption) Now Obama is spying on e-mails. I know. It’s fascinating to watch.

RUSH: To Orlando, this is Joe. I’m glad you waited, sir. You are up on the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Hello, Rush. Thank you for everything you do.

RUSH: I appreciate it, sir. Thank you.

CALLER: I just wanted to make a comment that there are a lot of people — my estimate would be that I probably know ten people — on unemployment, and I’d say six or seven out of ten are doing side jobs. They’re painting people’s houses. They’re helping people with their docks. They’re doing work everywhere. They’re working two or three days a week and getting unemployment. They don’t want to get off unemployment.

RUSH: Yeah, we have see — actually anecdotally — a lot of stories about that. People don’t… They are double dipping and enjoying it. They’re not having to work as hard. The government keeps extending unemployment benefits. All of this, by the way, is fine with Obama.

CALLER: Well, it’s happening. They are taking jobs away from people that if they weren’t getting unemployment they would put them back to work, but the people that are running construction companies or something, people are doing so many side jobs that they are not getting the work.

RUSH: Well, part of the reason for this is that employers do not want to take on full-time workers anyway.

CALLER: That’s true.

RUSH: They want to take on part-timers and that way not pay any health benefits. They figure they will be off-loading health care anyway once Obamacare kicks in, so why not go the temporary worker route? All of this, though, is exactly what Obama wants. He wants it. He wants this chaos. He wants people not earning a lot of money. He wants people working two and three jobs. He wants the whole wealth creation mechanism in this country to be arrested, which he has done a good job of getting a start on. Anyway, I appreciate the call, Joe. Thanks much. Sal in Wallingford, Connecticut, you’re next. Great to have you here.

CALLER: Yeah, hi. Please do me a favor. If you have to hold me over, I have something extremely important to tell you. If you remember right, back in the ’80s when Ronald Reagan was president, Mrs. Reagan changed the china in the White House, and the liberal establishment went wild. They said that she was a spendthrift and she was this and she was that. Yet Barack Obama’s wife goes to Spain with an entourage of about 40 or 50 people, I don’t know what it is.

RUSH: Sixty.

CALLER: Sixty?

RUSH: Yup.

CALLER: Okay, I’m sorry. I made a mistake.

RUSH: It’s 40 rooms.

CALLER: Being that you are as intelligent as you are, you would know better than I do.

RUSH: Exactly.

CALLER: I didn’t realize she went with 60.

RUSH: Sixty people.

CALLER: And guess what she did?

RUSH: Forty rooms.

CALLER: She goes to a hotel and it costs $6,000 a night.

RUSH: No, no. Maybe her room does. The average price is $2,500 a night.

CALLER: Oh, well, I’m sorry. I made a mistake.

RUSH: That is why I’m here.

CALLER: So $2,500 a night. And you know, I mean, when Mrs. Reagan changed the china, the liberal establishment went wild. Now, the other thing I wanted to talk to you — and if you please could hold me over — it’s about you.

RUSH: Get started.

CALLER: I have people who say to me, “You know, rush makes in the millions of dollars,” and I say to them, “God bless that he makes millions of dollars. He is an entrepreneur. He is a man who hires people. He is a person who goes ahead and is an individual who has worked for every penny he has got.” You know?

RUSH: That is true. That’s very true.

CALLER: I am so upset with this administration. Here people are dying so far as unemployment is concerned, and people go to Spain and spend $2,500 a night? What is going on with this country?

RUSH: Basically what you are asking is: Why isn’t there any outrage similar to the outrage in the media over Nancy Reagan changing the china? Why is there no outage over Michelle (My Belle) Obama with all these expenditures? She has 60 secret service people, by the way, on this trip to Spain. The answer is patently obvious. I guess you’re also asking: Why is there so much anger over the fact that I have earned what I have? It’s as simple as conservative versus liberal. It’s no more complicated than that, and as far as the media is concerned, Mrs. Obama deserves this. Look at the sorted past, look at our slave past, look at our discriminatory past. It’s only fair that people of color get their taste of the wealth of America too.

That is your answer.

RUSH: Now, we had a caller moments ago upset that the media is giving Michelle (My Belle) Obama a pass and they really ripped into Nancy Reagan. Not true. Last night on the CBS Evening News they covered it. Here is a montage of Sharyl Attkisson, the investigative reporter on Michelle Obama trip to Spain.

ATTKISSON: A posh hotel where rooms normally run from $300 to $6,000 a night. The First Lady’s group is said to occupy 60 rooms. Purely personal parts will be paid for by Mrs. Obama and friends. Official portions — the First Lady will visit the king and queen — will be on the taxpayer’s dime. That includes transport on the Air Force version of a 757: $146,000 for the round trip, not counting four to five days’ ground time. Expenses for Mrs. Obama’s support staff and the mandatory Secret Service detail which could number 70 agents, at the $273-a-day federal per diem, that’s $95,000 just for Secret Service room and board. One newspaper called Mrs. Obama “Marie Antoinette.”

RUSH: That was the New York Daily News. At least Sharyl Attkisson covered it. I don’t know for how long she will be at CBS, but she did do a report on Katie Couric’s CBS Evening News about the actual expenses. Now, since somebody brings up Nancy Reagan and the china, as is the case almost all the time this is unreported, misunderstood, misreported. State dinners had become so large by the time of the Reagan presidency that none of the china could accommodate the number of guests that they could put in the State Dining Room. So Nancy Reagan, she did, she ordered over 4,700 pieces of Lenox China which was enough place settings of 19 pieces for 220 people, which is what they can squeeze into the State Dining Room.

They just didn’t have the numbers to replace the old. So she went out and bought new china. She bought American. Michelle (My Belle) Obama is over in Spain. Michelle (My Belle) Obama is not stimulating American economy at all. So we can say here, Nancy Reagan turned to an American company and had them create and sell some White House China that probably cost less than one night of all of Michelle’s guests in that hotel in Spain. But because — and this should go without saying, but I realize that there is a new tune-in factor and people have these questions. Even though the answers after 22 years may bore me, they still need to be given. There’s a double standard — and people on the left (first ladies, presidents, what have you) can’t be racist, they can’t be bigots, they can’t be extravagant. They are not guilty of anything.

Everything they are doing is justified and understandable because they are at war with us and we are evil. They are a genuine aristocracy. They are no more representatives of the “working people” of America than anybody else is. But the double standard exists and there’s nothing that is going to change it. There are just… Why do you think it’s so easy for me to tweak the media every day? I mean, I have more fun tweaking the media because I know how they are going to react to something. All I have to do… Look, the media has its templates. They have their narratives. One of the narratives is that they hate the birthers. They despise people who raise questions about the fact that Obama hasn’t been forthcoming about the place of his birth. They despise those people. So all have you to do, all anybody has to do to rev them up, is say, “Hey, it’s president Obama’s birthday today — to the extent that we know.”

That is all it took and they had a conniption. They had a conniption fit. See, I know how to tweak these people. They know I know how to tweak them and they still allow themselves to be tweaked, because the narrative and the template is what is important. We just had this Clinton wedding. Look how it was portrayed. It was portrayed as a Camelot kind of wedding. Was there any problem with the Clintons doing that during these economic times? No! There wasn’t one raised eyebrow, there wasn’t one frown, there wasn’t one expression of, “Gee, that seems a little out of touch.” No! In fact, Tina Brown of the daily beast wrote a column of why we all “needed” that wedding, why America “needed” the Chelsea wedding. Meantime, I got married on June 5 and Elton John was the performer.

They think they know what it cost, and for a week there was genuine vitriol and anger over the fact. There was no speculation of why, only condemnation. There was no intrigue. There was no interest. There was no support. There were no stories about all of the stimulation of the local economy that took place because of the wedding here. None of that. No, no, no. It was mocked and made fun of. This is just who they are. Like I say, answering this stuff bores me after 22 years because this is one of the things that isn’t going to change. As long as the media is made up of the people it’s made up of, it’s not going to change. My frustration is that if we have people looking for their own validation in the way media reports, you’re forever going to be miserable and I’m going to be ticked off answering your questions.

Because you are never, we are never going to have the media on our side. The media is never going to present our side. The media is never going to represent us properly. The media is never going to condemn Democrats the way they condemn us. It isn’t going to happen. If you are waiting around for that to happen as a sign that things are leveling out or that we are winning, then you’re going to perpetually think we are losing and we’re not. But some things are what they are.


RUSH: Journalism long ago stopped being “Who? What? When? Where? Why?” Journalism today is, “Who is the Republican here?” Journalism is, “Who is the conservative here?” That’s all journalism is. Now, the UK press is a different store. The UK Daily Mail is just one example. They are ripping Obama to shreds in the UK. “Spanish Police Close Public Beach for Michelle Obama’s £250,000 Spanish Holiday.” That is $375,000, and it’s being paid for by us. Michelle Obama today faced a fresh wave of attacks over her lavish break in Spain with 40 friends, which could easily cost U.S. taxpayers a staggering [$65,000] a day, and don’t misunderstand. She is not representing America. She is going to see the king and queen, much like a businessman would go a have a meeting to deduct a whole trip.

This is a vacation. You don’t take 40 friends with you on an official trip. She is on vacation, and we’re paying for it. The UK press is all over it. They have pictures. This UK Daily Mail story (you can see it at Drudge) prints out to 12 pages. It’s huge, with all kinds of pictures of the beach that has been cordoned off — and Michelle’s car van of SUVs that she moves around, and pictures of the hotel. So the UK press, they are laying it on thick. And by the way, one thing I need to mention about the Reagan china: Taxpayers did not pay for it. US taxpayers did not pay for the china that Nancy Reagan bought. It was a gift to the White House Foundation by California friends of the Reagans. I kid you not. It was not paid for by the taxpayers.

The Clintons, Jews And Niggers (Warning Graphic Language)


The Foulmouthed & Lying Clintons

Reinhold Aman, Ph.D.

Millions of cretinous and amoral Americans still admire Bill and Hillary Clinton, the two foulest amoral slimebags that have ever besmirched the White House. These two foulmouthed and lying psychopaths have been, and still are, blindly supported by masses of non-clinical morons, diehard Democrats, and whorish liberal journalists and their editors.

The Clintons’ habitual lies, gutter language, anti-Semitic outbursts, and anti-black slurs have been documented by reliable writers but have been — and still are — routinely suppressed by the so-called liberal media. This article serves to counter and expose that shameless misleading of the public about the true character of America’s two supreme actors and how they talk in private.

Lest you think I am a Republican, conservative, or member of the imaginary “vast right-wing conspiracy”: I am an apolitical anti-politician. Because I despise blatantly lying politicians with all my guts, I am presenting this uncensored record of some of the foul language used by these two parasitical pieces of putrid puke that have been living off the taxpayers of Arkansas and the United States for many years — thanks to partisan, knee-jerk or imbecilic supporters. Anyone who admires or supports those two amoral swine is just as amoral as they are.

The Foulmouthed First “Lady” & Senator

The following five quotations are from Alec Flegon’s Dictionary of English Sex Quotations (London: Flegon Press, 1996):

  • L.D. Brown, a member of Clinton’s former security staff and bodyguard in Arkansas, stated that Hillary is “as foul-mouthed as any sailor you’d ever meet.” (p. 147)
  • As reported by Bill’s security staff, Hillary frequently erupted in expletive-filled tirades against him. “I can’t believe you would ask a fucking question like that!” Or, about his shaky driving, “You’re gonna get us fucking killed!” (p. 147)
  • She shouted at Bill over his unfaithfulness: “I need to be fucked more than twice a year!” (p. 170)
  • Hillary to Larry Patterson, an Arkansas state trooper and Clinton bodyguard from 1986 to 1993, who was bringing a judge’s wife to the Little Rock airport: “What the fuck do you think you’re doing? I know who that whore is.” (p. 171)
  • Coming out of the Arkansas governor’s mansion early morning on Labor Day 1991, Hillary screamed: “Where is the goddamn fucking flag? I want the goddamn fucking flag up every fucking morning at fucking sunrise!” (p. 173).

Patterson observed Hillary standing at the bottom of the stairs in the governor’s mansion, and Bill at the top of the stairs with little Chelsea beside him, as Hillary screamed at him at the top of her lungs: “Goddamn stupid fucking fool!” [NewsMax, 15 July 2000]

Patterson stated that Bill and Hillary Clinton would frequently argue with each other using the worst expletives known to mankind, sometimes in the presence of their daughter Chelsea. Some of the anti-Semitic slurs with which she commonly laced her tirades against Bill were “Jew motherfucker,” “Jew Boy” and “Jew Bastard.” [NewsMax, 15 and 17 July 2000]

“If she disagreed with Bill Clinton or she disagreed with some of the Jewish community in Little Rock — or some of the ethnic community — she would often make these statements.” “She would say ‘Jew Bastard‘ or call her husband a ‘Jew boy‘ or a ‘motherfucking Jew‘,” Patterson told the WABC New York radio audience. [Carl Limbacher and NewsMax Staff, 17 July 2000]

Patterson said he heard Hillary “utter anti-Jewish epithets between 10 and 20 times over the course of his six years at the Arkansas governor’s mansion.” [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

Hillary’s rages continued after she took up residence in the White House, where she blew up at a Secret Service agent for declining to carry her bags. When the agent explained that he needed to keep his hands free in order to protect her, she replied: “If you want to remain on this detail, get your fucking ass over here and grab those bags.” [Joyce Milton in The First Partner: Hillary Rodham Clinton (1999), p. 259]

Hillary to a Secret Service agent, after she heard that a University of California-Berkeley student had written a satirical column in The Daily Californian about daughter Chelsea: “What the fuck is going on?” [San Francisco Chronicle, 26 Nov. 1997]

Bill also badmouthed others and his dear Hillary. David Brock, ex-American Spectator reporter: “From the back of his Lincoln, Bill Clinton would say about Paula Jones, ‘What does that whore think she’s doing to me?’ He also referred to his ex-lover Gennifer Flowers as a ‘fucking slut,’ according to Larry Patterson.” [Drudge Report, 9 March 1998]

When Hillary (once again) physically attacked Bill, Secret Service agents had to separate them. “Keep that bitch away from me!” Bill Clinton told one Secret Service agent. [The National Enquirer, 5 Jan. 1999]


Larry Patterson confirmed that he frequently heard Bill Clinton use “nigger” to refer to both Jesse Jackson and local Little Rock black leader Robert “Say” McIntosh. Longtime Clinton paramour Dolly Kyle Browning corroborated Patterson on Clinton’s use of “nigger.” “Not only did he use the ‘N’ word, he called him a ‘GDN’ [goddamn nigger], if you catch my drift,” Browning told Fox News in 1999. [NewsMax, 17 July 2000] Brown also told NewsMax that the president would regularly make derogatory comments about African-Americans in private. “He has used the ‘N’ word before. Bill would make snide remarks about blacks behind their backs.” [Carl Limbacher and NewsMax Staff, 17 July 2000] Obama ‘Buckwheat’

Patterson said Hillary was no stranger to the “N” word either. He heard her say “nigger” “probably six, eight, ten times. She would be upset with someone in the black community and she would use the ‘N’ word, like, you heard they’ve got the president’s brother on tape using the ‘N’ word.” [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

It’s all in the family: Captured on videotape when Arkansas state police had Hillary’s brother-in-law Roger Clinton under surveillance for dealing cocaine in 1984, Roger stated: “Some junior high nigger kicked Steve’s ass while he was trying to help his brothers out; junior high or sophomore in high school. Whatever it was, Steve had the nigger down. However it was, it was Steve’s fault. He had the nigger down, he let him up. The nigger blindsided him.” [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

“You Fucking Jew Bastard!”

Jerry Oppenheimer’s book State of the Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton (2000) quotes former campaign aide Mary Lee Fray, who says that Hillary exploded in a rage after Bill lost his first bid for elective office, a run for Congress in Arkansas’s Third Congressional District against John Paul Hammerschmidt. Hillary blamed Fray’s husband, Paul, for the campaign’s bungled political strategy. The slur was uttered at a heated, finger-pointing session at Bill Clinton’s Fayetteville, Ark., campaign headquarters on election night in 1974, following his defeat. “You fucking Jew bastard!” Hillary yelled at Paul, Mary Lee confirmed — even though Paul Fray is not Jewish. [NewsMax, 15 July 2000]

In the room that night were Bill Clinton; his then-girlfriend Hillary Rodham; Paul Fray, Clinton’s campaign manager; and Fray’s wife, Mary Lee. Another campaign worker, Neill McDonald, was just outside the door and heard everything. [Daily News, 17 July 2000] Paul Fray is a Baptist but his heritage is Jewish; his paternal grandmother was Jewish, and Bill and Hillary knew of his heritage.

Mary Lee Fray said that Hillary not only used an anti-Semitic slur but she shouted it so loudly “it rattled the walls.” “It was very clear,” she said. “Bill Clinton’s face became white as a ghost.” [, AP and New York Post, 18 July 2000]

Former Clinton campaign aide Neill McDonald, who has always been a Clinton supporter [Jewish World Review, 19 July 2000], confirmed the story, according to the New York Daily News. [Reuters, 17 July 2000] He heard the obscenity as he stood outside the room. [, AP, New York Post, 18 July 2000]

The Usual Media Coverup

Sources in Arkansas told mainstream reporters as early as 1999 about Hillary Clinton’s use of anti-Semitic language, but they and their editors decided to withhold the bombshell revelation from the American people. [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

Vanity Fair writer Gail Sheehy, who has enjoyed special access to Mrs. Clinton over the years, interviewed Mary Lee Fray for her book Hillary’s Choice. Sheehy told Newsday that even though Mary Lee’s account included Mrs. Clinton’s vile slur, her husband made no mention of it in a separate interview. Sheehy does not say that Mr. Fray denied the story — only that the subject did not come up. Apparently the author herself decided to avoid the topic, thereby ruling out any chance that a second source for Hillary’s anti-Semitic shocker would compel publication. [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

Sheehy said that she had heard the story of the alleged anti-Semitic comment several years ago from Fray’s wife. But Sheehy said she left it out of her book because it was “off the wall. It was totally without credibility.” [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

NBC-TV’s Andrea Mitchell admitted that Fray recounted the incident, complete with Hillary’s anti-Semitic slur, during an interview for the network’s “Dateline NBC” program in 1999. But NBC News editors decided to kill the report on the sensational allegation because the story lacked corroboration, Mitchell said. [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

The folks at NBC must not have tried too hard to substantiate Fray’s account, since his wife, Mary Lee, was more than willing to corroborate the charge — as she has for dozens of reporters since the story resurfaced. [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

One-time Clinton consultant Dick Morris gave Gail Sheehy an exclusive account of his now legendary story about Hillary’s use of a Jewish stereotype during an argument she had with him. “Money — that’s all you people care about is money,” Morris said Hillary yelled after he asked for a pay raise in 1986. In November 1999 Morris went public with the story, noting that he’d told it to Sheehy for her then-upcoming Hillary biography, Hillary’s Choice. But when the book hit the stands in December, Morris’s explosive report was nowhere to be found. [NewsMax, 18 July 2000]

Hillary’s Lying & Denying

Hillary called a news conference on her Chappaqua front lawn and angrily and tearfully said, “I wanted to unequivocally state it never happened, I hate this type of politics of destruction.” [UPI, 17 July 2000]

Senate candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton angrily denied having uttered an anti-Jewish slur 26 years ago. “I’ve never said anything like that in my entire life,” the first lady said. [Reuters, 16 July 2000]

Angry and emotional, Hillary Rodham Clinton firmly denied allegations from a forthcoming book that she used an anti-Semitic slur 26 years ago. [AP, 16 July 2000]

“I can only state unequivocally it did not happen,” she said. “Any reasonable person looking at the evidence in this case would conclude there’s no credibility on the other side.” [Reuters, 17 July 2000]

Hillary: “I want to state unequivocally that it never happened and very clearly point out that it goes against my entire life,” she said. “In the past, I may have called someone a name, but I have never used ethnic, racial, anti-Semitic, bigoted, discriminatory, prejudiced accusations against anybody. I’ve never done it. I’ve never thought it. So why people are accusing me of this is certainly beyond my understanding.” [Daily News, 17 July 2000]

“I have a lot of confidence in the fundamental good judgment of New Yorkers to see through these kinds of charges,” Mrs. Clinton said during a press conference on Ellis Island. [AP, 18 July 2000]

In addition to the above-cited anti-Semitic and anti-Black slurs by Hillary (and Bill), she used an anti-Italian slur against then-Senate candidate Al D’Amato in 1998 by publicly ridiculing him as ‘Senator Tomato‘.” [NewsMax, 17 July 2000]

Being a pathological liar, Hillary denies & denies & denies. It’s sad and depressing that millions of moronic Americans believe her and that amoral, stupid or opportunistic New Yorkers elected that carpet-bagging bitch as a senator. It is to puke.

Bill’s Denials, Lies & Contradictions

Is there anyone who does not remember the two most widely reported blatant lies by that psychopathic liar Bill Clinton? You know, that he “didn’t inhale” when smoking marijuana and that he “did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” (I guess pot wasn’t strong enough for “Cocaine Bill,” whose half-brother Roger was caught on a police surveillance video saying, “Got to get some for my brother. He’s got a nose like a vacuum cleaner.” [The Electronic Telegraph (London), 15 July 1996])

The Clinton campaign released a statement from President Clinton in which he said: “I was there on election night in 1974 and this charge is simply not true. It did not happen. My wife has stood for social justice and tolerance and against racial and religious hatred and bigotry for as long as I have known her.” [AP, 16 July 2000]

Clinton jumped to his wife’s defense: “She might have called him a bastard,” the president said in an interview in the New York Daily News. “I wouldn’t rule that out. She’s never claimed that she was pure on profanity. But I’ve never heard her tell a joke with an ethnic connotation. She’s so fanatic about it. She can’t tell an ethnic joke — it’s not in her.” [UPI, 17 July 2000; Daily News, 17 July 2000; FOXNews, AP, and New York Post, 18 July 2000]

President Clinton came to his wife’s defense, denying that she called a campaign aide a “fucking Jew bastard” in 1974. In two telephone calls to the New York Daily News from the Camp David Middle East summit, including one to Mortimer B. Zuckerman, the paper’s chairman and co-publisher, the President said, “I was there and [Hillary] never said it. In 29 years, my wife has never, ever uttered an ethnic or racial slur against anybody, ever. She’s so straight on this, she squeaks.” [Daily News, 17 July 2000]

So Bill remembered the event but the lying bitch didn’t? One wonders whether that foul female squeaked whenever she uttered “nigger,” “Jew motherfucker,” “Jew boy,” and “You fucking Jew bastard!

“It really got bad,” Clinton said, “and he [Paul Fray] and Hillary somehow got in a fight. There was never a racial slur. If she were an anti-Semite, which she is not, it would never have occurred to her to say anything like that to him” — a reference to the fact that Fray is not Jewish. [Daily News, 17 July 2000]

Hillary’s hubby exposed that lying bitch in a rare moment of telling the truth: He acknowledged that there was a fight, that she called Fray a “bastard,” and implied that she used “fucking” (“She’s never claimed that she was pure on profanity”), but then switched back to his standard modus operandi by lying that she didn’t use “Jew.” Why? Because that would have cost her the pivotal Jewish vote.

Others On the Clinton Denials

“I think they’ve got a little bit of what you call ‘selective memory‘,” Paul Fray added, referring to the president and first lady, who have vehemently denied the accusation. [, AP and New York Post, 18 July 2000]

“I’m inclined to believe she did it. It’s not because she has a vicious streak in her [and] has a notoriously bad temper; it’s not because [Jewish] Dick Morris made a similar charge concerning a comment Hillary made to him when they were discussing his consulting fees: ‘That’s all you people care about is money.’ Hillary is telling the patently unbelievable story that she doesn’t even remember the altercation with Fray, when even husband Bill admits remembering the fight.” [David Limbaugh in Jewish World Review, 19 July 2000]

Defended By Sycophantic Double-Standard Jews

Various big-name Jews, such as the shameless Clinton-ass-kissing Senator Charles Schumer (N.Y.), former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, and Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, immediately came to Hillary’s defense by claiming that she is not anti-Semitic — despite her frequent anti-Semitic utterances, the Rodham family’s well-known dislike of Jews, the Clintons’ anti-Semitic jokes, and her repeated use of “Jew bastard” and “Jew motherfucker.”

“I don’t believe she said it, and if she said it 26 years ago, so what?” Ed Koch, who makes no secret of being a proud Jew, told the New York Post. “Did she say it yesterday? There must be a statute of limitations.” [NewsMax, 15 July 2000]

Abe Foxman told the New York Post, “If in fact she said it, that does not make her an anti-Semite, because there is a public record of Hillary Rodham Clinton of the past 26 years which has no iota of anti-Semitism.” [NewsMax, 15 July 2000]

The ADL said in a statement that it believes the First Lady when she said she never called Paul Fray a “fucking Jew bastard” during an argument after the loss 26 years ago. [UPI, 17 July 2000]

Sen. Charles Schumer, who is Jewish, issued a statement saying, “I’ve known Hillary Clinton for eight years, and she doesn’t have an anti-Semitic bone in her body.” [Reuters, 16 July 2000]

Jewish New York Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey also defended Hillary: “…there’s no way Hillary could make a statement like that.” [AP, 16 July 2000]

Not All New York Jews Were That Shameless

Leaders of New York’s Jewish community lined up on opposite sides of the debate. Representatives of conservative Jewish groups disagreed with the Anti-Defamation League’s defense of Hillary. Dov Hikind, a New York Assemblyman and leader of Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish community, told UPI: “If this was only a remark made 26 years ago, then it wouldn’t be a big issue…. [But this] is not an isolated case.” “There is no statute of limitations for racism or anti-Semitism or bigotry.” [AP and Reuters, 17 July 2000]

Excerpts from Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz, state chaplain for the State of New York: “Madame Hillary called a campaign aide a ‘Fucking Jew Bastard.’ Funny, isn’t it, that Manhattan’s limousine liberal Jewish set wants so quickly to forget about Hillary’s anti-Semitism…. The liberal New York media — dominated as it is by members of the Jewish community — have barely mentioned the trooper’s [Larry Patterson] allegations and has afforded Hillary every benefit of the doubt. Surely, if Mr. Lazio, her Senate opponent, had made such remarks about Jews — no matter how long ago — he would have been skewered by New York’s liberal press like there was no tomorrow. The major media have become inveterate ass-kissers of the Clintons….” [NewsMax, 24 July 2000]

Media Censors & Weasels

There’s no doubt that Hillary called Paul Fray a “fucking Jew bastard.” If there were the slightest doubt, you can bet that vicious Hillary would have sicced her amoral $450-an-hour shyster David Kendall on every author, publication and news service that reported her anti-Semitic slur, regardless of how veiled and coy the media were about her vile outburst.

Following below is a sampling of how the media reported “fucking Jew bastard.” Note the euphemized fucking and its suppression, the euphemized bastard, as well as the various uninformative paraphrases, verbal maneuvers, and spineless weaseling. The quotations are arranged from the most to the least complete reporting of Hillary’s exact and complete filth. TIME magazine wins the Weasel Prize for keeping the reader in the dark about what was actually said; the Associated Press is runner-up for euphemizing bastard and suppressing fucking; and United Press International wins third place for euphemizing all words but “Jew.” A special prize goes to CBS Radio News for telling its listeners that Hillary merely “used rough language” and an unspecified “anti-Semitic slur” — like what? Kike? Hebe? Christ-killer?

Illegal Aliens In Arizona

The bill signed by Governor Jan Brewer will require state police to question people about their immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion”. The bill takes effect in 90 days making it a crime under state law to be in the US illegally. Question, What is wrong with enforcing a law about Illegal Aliens? For years states that border Mexico has had problems with Illegal Aliens.

Those that have not read Arizona’s New Immigration Law need to look at it before jumping to conclusions, OBAMA! Arizona’s New Immigration Law


Arizona’s  new immigration law has been called an abomination, racist, arbitrary, oppressive, mean-spirited, unjust and unconstitutional. HOW? When the person is here Illegally! If that’s the case, open the border, hire illegals, let illegals into the schools, give illegals health benefits, pay for illegals education, don’t ask illegals for taxes, don’t ARREST any illegal person for crimes they commit. Let an illegal person do anything they want and YOU the U.S. citizen cannot say a word or take action, because that would be considered an abomination, racist, arbitrary, oppressive, mean-spirited, unjust and unconstitutional.
