  • Critics say it’s time NY ends 1885 Scaffold Law

    Years before skyscrapers, when New York City’s tallest building was still the 281-foot spire of Wall Street’s historic Trinity Church, state lawmakers passed the Scaffold Law, which made property owners and contractors liable for most “gravity-related” injuries to workers on construction sites. … Some New York government agencies and contractors say the cost of the insurance, which can often be double that of other states, is hitting a crisis point that could soon suspend work on bridges, schools and the recovery from Superstorm Sandy.“It increases the cost of doing business and decreases what we are capable of doing in New...

    As a young single woman, Michelle Robinson was a fixture in the home of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who along with Rev. Jeremiah Wright “arranged” her marriage to Barack Obama, according to sources in Chicago who know the couple. Jackson’s daughter, Santita, is still one of Michelle’s best friends. “It all relates back to Trinity and to the Jesse Jackson orbit of blacks here in Chicago who gave Obama legitimacy and helped him establish his identity as a black man,” Robyn explained. “The political left wanted to push a black to the presidency, and the key operatives in the...

    'Matchmaker' Rev. Jeremiah Wright 'provided cover for gays' After nearly four years in office, many Americans still express frustration that much about Barack Obama remains a mystery as establishment media remain incurious about the Democratic president, while seemingly ready to dispatch crack investigative teams at a moment’s notice to probe into the personal lives of Republican figures such as Sarah Palin. Largely ignored in 2008 was research by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on contacts developed with members of the church Obama attended for two decades, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. This is the first of a series...

    Apparently science has discovered the one force in nature that can silence Michael Moore: The Oprah Winfrey Show. With the premiere of his new film, Capitalism: A Love Story, looming on September 16 at the Toronto Film Festival, normally you’d expect to find Moore filling up every inch of media, shocking the bourgeoisie with his trademark Angry Guy Banging on the Palace Walls shtick, providing Matt Drudge with a new outrageous quote every news cycle. But Moore has been strangely silent in this run-up and the LA Times‘ Patrick Goldstein has learned that he plans to keep a lid on...

    NEW YORK – Barack Obama and his message of change will get a ringing endorsement on Inauguration Day from 12 bells at a church near ground zero. "Change ringing is a way that we express the joy of our community, and I think much of the nation is joyous about this inauguration," said Jeremy Bates, a Manhattan lawyer and former Obama campaign worker who will be among the 12 ringers pulling on sturdy ropes in the church's bell tower to mark the historic occasion. Change ringing is far more common outside the United States. Most cathedrals in England have sets...

    President-elect Barack Obama's former preacher Jeremiah Wright is Back or at least was back for a day. He gave his fiery sermons at his old pulpit yesterday, and while there bashed every media vehicle and personality he could think of. Obama's former mentor even bashed Elizebeth Hasselback, branded her as a dizzy blond. Which were pretty strong words for the preacher who during his sermon called December 7th the anniversary of the dropping of the A-Bomb instead of what it was the anniversary of Pearl Harbor.

    Usually, children's books do not scare me. But I just read a children's book entitled "Barack" by Johah Winter, with illustrations by AG Ford, published on September 30, 2008 by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers. "Barack's" dust jacket states that it is for children ages 4-7. This book scared me very much.

    (CNSNews.com) – President-elect Barack Obama said in 2004 – while he was a state legislator running for a U.S. Senate seat – that he attended services at Trinity United Church of Christ every week. This is in contrast to what Obama, as a presidential candidate, said this year after controversial anti-American remarks by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright surfaced. Obama then told news outlets that he did not attend the church frequently and was not aware of Wright’s comments. The comments from Obama about his church attendance appeared in the transcript of an interview posted Tuesday on the religious news Web...

    Hello Everyone - As you can probably tell I am not a regular poster here. I logged in because I think I have found something important and it needs to be shared. As you know, Barack Obama's church - Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago - used to sell hundreds of videos on its website of the sermons of his kooky Afro-centric preacher Jeremiah Wright. When a few of these finally saw the light of day in March the video section of the site was scrubbed and pulled down. You can see the scrubbed version online now (http://www.tucc.org/store/index.cfm?action=catbrowse&catid=40). All...

    What led Obama to Wright's church How a man of ambition found connections at Chicago's Trinity By Christi Parsons and Manya A. Brachear Tribune reporters 3:31 AM CDT, May 3, 2008 Click here to find out more! The day Barack Obama first showed up in the office of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., more than 20 years ago, the pastor warned him that getting involved with Trinity United Church of Christ might not be "a feather in your cap." Obama was a community organizer trying to build support for his group on the South Side of Chicago, and a friendly minister...

    Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton argued Sunday that her campaign for the White House is "about solutions," not feelings, as she swept through Ohio on an intense push two days before the state's presidential primary. She told more than 2,000 cheering backers that she wants to solve the economic troubles facing the industrial Midwest. "For some people this election is about how you feel, it's about speeches," Clinton said. "Well, that's not what it's about for me. It's about solutions...." Mrs. Clinton focused on her promise to provide health insurance for all, as well as her opposition to trade agreements that...

    I'm not buying the Obama campaign spin on Michelle Obama's patriotic faux pas this week, any more than I'm inclined to believe that Barack Obama's refusal to wear our flag pin in his lapel is a meaningless gesture.  Both Michelle's stated lack of pride in America until this precise moment in history, and Barack's unwillingness to don our national symbol are in perfect keeping with the doctrines of their church, Trinity United Church of Christ. The simple truth is that if any of us exposed ourselves to the kind of teachings espoused by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright for 20 years,...

    The influence of the black liberation theology of James H. Cone appears in the political philosophy of Barack Obama as well as in the recent controversial statement about national pride made by Michelle Obama.  The spiritual role that Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ (UCC) and its just-retired pastor Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright have played in the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama is well-established, as is the Africentric theology that is the cornerstone of the church's self-proclaimed identity. One largely unexamined element of that Africentric theology, though, is the pivotal role that black liberation theologian Dr. James H. Cone,...

    Jeremiah Wright retired last weekend, he continues to influence the black community nationally and his teachings have left an indelible impression on thousands. One particuarly notable TUCC member is Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama, who has attended the south Chicago church for the last 20 years and who named his book "The Audacity of Hope" after a phrase Wright used in a sermon several years ago. Although Trinity has moved its controversial "Black Value System" from easy access on its website (once here), one of the most mysterious "Black Value System" teachings ( now hidden here) is the one that...

This is what was written there originally: We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization.

    [I]n 1984, [Wright] traveled to Cuba to teach Christians about the value of nonviolent protest and to Libya to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, along with the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Mr. Wright said his visits implied no endorsement of their views. ---snip--- On the Sunday after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Mr. Wright said the attacks were a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later he wrote that the attacks had proved that “people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West went on its merry way...
