President Obama Signs a New Executive Order — United States of Racism?

President Obama is no stranger to executive orders, as most of you already know.  He doesn’t let too many days go by without sneaking one in there, and he generally waits for the right moment in the news cycle to get what he wants done with the least commotion possible.  In the past weeks, he has signed some controversial ones, but his latest may take the cake.  The “White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans” is being applauded by Obama’s usual fan club as a bold move forward in our country.  Others are crying foul, however, saying that President Obama’s latest initiative creates an unfair playing field when it comes to discipline in schools.

ALL!
ALL!

Common Sense Conspiracy has weighed in on our opinion that it is the will of the powers-that-be (and we’re not talking about President Obama or even the United States government) that an agenda to reignite the racial divide in our country must be pushed forth.  The proponents of the New World Order, whatever you want to label them as, know that the only hope they have to force their plan on the United States is to make sure that the United States stays in reality the Divided States.  Race is a hot-button issue that those that wish to use it find easy to harness as a means for pitting American against American.  It has succeeded for decades and in fact, even centuries now.  The Civil War is a classic example of American against American, and while many of us might go through our daily lives thinking that nothing could ever bring us to that again, the very ones that govern us want to make sure that is at the very least a possibility.  A truly united United States would be the worst thing our government could imagine; they cannot let that come to pass.  Race, religion, political affiliation, and even sexual orientation are just things that they use to keep us happily at war with each other and not at war with them.

As most things with government, the order sounds fine on the surface.  We’re gonna help African Americans get better education.  The executive order is abundantly clear that African Americans do not have a level playing field when it comes to educational opportunities.  This is absolutely true.  After all, there is no such thing as public education.  White people are able to go to school because their rich parents pay their way completely.  White people get to go to college when they get done because every white person has $100,000 in their back pocket; they certainly don’t rely on things like government student education loans to get through.  White people never have to endure bad or underpaid teachers, old decrepit buildings, or a lack of extracurricular activities.  The author of this article is white.  He went to a public high school where he had to eat his lunch in the floor of the hallway because the roof wasn’t fixed for THREE years.  He would have liked to have played tennis but the courts were overgrown with grass.  He achieved a status as a high school graduate there that still leaves him in a state of ridicule.  When he lists where he went to high school, people often wonder if he can write his name.  But President Obama’s executive order only applies to those black children that attended that same high school, to prevent that atrocity from happening again.

Because it’s a black problem.  White people never endure bad schools, little educational opportunity, adverse situations.

If only everyone could be white and have the road laid down as you walk before your feet.

So, do we need better education opportunities for African American children?  Sure.  We agree.  I agree.  But why can’t it be the AMERICAN EDUCATION INITIATIVE instead of the AFRICAN AMERICAN EDUCATION INITIATIVE.

Some white readers might cry out “Because President Obama is black and he just wants to help his people.”  Well, you may be right and you may be wrong, but our point is that he’s really helping an agenda.  Things like this further a divide that is not as great as the mainstream media and government want desperately for you to believe.  That’s not saying that we don’t have problems; it’s just saying that here lately, there are issues cropping up and being heavily promoted by the mainstream media that seem to want to propagate hate instead of tolerance.  And there’s a reason for it.

It’s right there in black and white.

While You Were Sleeping — President Obama Signs Executive Order — HIV/AIDS Tests for Everyone?

While George Zimmerman ate up the mainstream media’s news cycle perpetually this week, and even President Obama himself got in on the action, spreading his own feelings about the verdict albeit tongue-in-cheek, as always is the case, there was another agenda at work.  Our “While You Were Sleeping” category was created for situations just like this.  Anytime there is a major polarizing news story like the Zimmerman trial has become, you can always bet that underneath the surface, politicians are eagerly pushing something through that would have normally been front page news but because of the distraction can slip through with little opposition or attention.

President Obama seized on this magical opportunity to sign his autopen to yet another executive order.  Yes, not even a week ago was the last one, the one that gave him unparalleled authority over communications and the Internet.  Well, he’s back.  This order is called the “HIV Care Continuum Initiative.”

It may not be a suggestion anymore soon...
It may not be a suggestion anymore soon…

First of all, where did this come from?  HIV and AIDS is certainly still a problem, but it has hardly been top of the news cycle lately.  It seems kind of out of the blue that Obama would suddenly throw down an executive order about this, what with all the myriad of things out there he could be attempting to throw his authority around on.  In any case, the executive order is getting a lot of attention in conspiracy circles for one reason:  HIV and AIDS testing.

A lot of our fellow sites are sensationalizing this order by proclaiming that Obama has now legislated “mandatory” HIV/AIDS testing for everyone.  Well, that is not technically true.  The executive order only “recommends” that it be so.  The real question that we all need to ask is how far the divide is between “recommending” and “requiring” and why exactly this is coming up at this particular moment in time?

We can assure you one thing.  It is no accident.  In any case, we have included the text of the order below.  Hit the More button if you want to check out the entire document.

ACCELERATING IMPROVEMENTS IN HIV PREVENTION AND CARE IN THE UNITED STATES THROUGH THE HIV CARE CONTINUUM INITIATIVE

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to further strengthen the capacity of the Federal Government to effectively respond to the ongoing domestic HIV epidemic, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Addressing the domestic HIV epidemic is a priority of my Administration. In 2010, the White House released the first comprehensive National HIV/AIDS Strategy (Strategy), setting quantitative goals for reducing new HIV infections, improving health outcomes for people living with HIV, and reducing HIV-related health disparities. The Strategy will continue to serve as the blueprint for our national response to the domestic epidemic. It has increased coordination, collaboration, and accountability across executive departments and agencies (agencies) with regard to addressing the epidemic. It has also focused our Nation’s collective efforts on increasing the use of evidence-based approaches to prevention and care among populations and in regions where HIV is most concentrated.

Since the release of the Strategy, additional scientific discoveries have greatly enhanced our understanding of how to prevent and treat HIV. Accordingly, further Federal action is appropriate in response to these new developments. For example, a breakthrough research trial supported by the National Institutes of Health showed that initiating HIV treatment when the immune system was relatively healthy reduced HIV transmission by 96 percent. In addition, evidence suggests that early treatment may reduce HIV-related complications. These findings highlight the importance of prompt HIV diagnosis, and because of recent advances in HIV testing technology, HIV can be detected sooner and more rapidly than ever before.

Based on these and other data, recommendations for HIV testing and treatment have changed. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends that clinicians screen all individuals ages 15 to 65 years for HIV, and the Department of Health and Human Services Guidelines for Use of Antiretroviral Agents now recommends offering treatment to all adolescents and adults diagnosed with HIV.
