No class.
She better hope her father doesn't get his ass thrown to jail so he can arrange some nonsense-job for her at taxpayer's expense.

Her daddy-o is hanging out with the billionaires of this world now.

Obama is currently awaiting entrance to the 1% club and the million-dollar speaking tours.

Well, that and an insane amount of money being deposited on his behalf in some fiscal paradise in the Caribbean.  

To me, she looks like a typical pain-in-the-ass teenager, unattended to and seeking a higher truth through the usual vices.

Can't wait to see Michelle's face when she stumbles upon a picture of her bundle-of-joy kneeling and looking upwards, her face covered in semen, all the while two huge white cocks rest gently on her forehead.

So, we've already established that the trump daughter was a pornstar and party girl at Malia's age. Donald jr was getting into bar fights and arrested for public drunkenness well into his 20s until they went to work for daddy's company. jr said the only time they saw their father growing up was when they visited him at his office before school and they were estranged from each other for an entire year. It's safe to assume that he sees the daughter who won't hug him in public and the preteen son that lives in another city less than that. What's supposed to be so great here?  ???

Post the link to the porn video then, I'm sure it is readily available.

Do you think totally making shit up is some type of refuting of the truth?

The facts are, Obama is a lazy, useless homo, his "wife" is a white-hating equal opportunity dunce who is uglier than an Arkansas drag queen, and his daughters will be turning tricks in DC bathrooms as long as there are paper bags available for their heads

That's the truth. Your hero Barack takes dick in the ass....so at least you two have something in common.

Hahahahaha. Hillary Clinton was the worst candidate to ever run for POTUS in history, yet Libs lapped up her bullshit by the gallon.

Same alternate universe you live in about obama getting caught spying on trump. That's okay Snowflake, alternate universes and denial of truth by Dems arent going to hold up well in court.

You really haven't established anything. But let's do a little off the cuff comparison. Obama kid is what 18-19? Getting into trouble, getting high and admittedly being a typical college (sad in itself) kid who, depending on what her major is won't learn shit by the time she graduates. Now let's take Ivanka. She released her clothing line in 2007 at the age of 24. Undoubtedly she took the right steps when it comes to starting a business. Business plan, securing investors, etc. probably took her a good two years of planning which means she was around 21-22, just 3-4 years older than Obamas daughter(s). She did it right. 10 years later her clothing line is worth and estimated $100mil. Where do you think Obamas daughter will be in 3-4 years?

Well, others in this thread have established even less. Ironic, huh?  ::)  What trouble is Malia allegedly getting into? She had a crazy weekend at a music festival and a contentious exchange with a paparazzo who was stalking her? That is pretty much the entirety of the op's article. GTFOH. The girl will attend an ivy league university, she has already interned on a few different Hollywood productions and she's the daughter of a former president.Her future is limitless. 

The question itself is ridiculous. There was no outside indication that Ivanka would have found success in business at the age of 18. Suffice it to say, the majority of the success is due to her association with her father's business. She didn't do 3 years of due diligence to start her clothing company. This is a family that barely can get it together for the presidency, so you know that's bullshit. Her clothing company is a licensing venture. She doesn't manufacture or distribute it and she doesn't own a majority stake. A larger company that does the majority of real work pays her for her name and likeness.

Meanwhile, she and Melania have both done porn, Don Jr spent his 20s battling substance abuse.

Ivanka's relationship with New York-based G-iii is a licensing deal, not dissimilar to the arrangement that propelled Jessica Simpson from pop singer to proprietor of a $1 billion retail empire. (In fact, G-iii is also a Simpson licensee, responsible for the dresses and coats sold under her name.)

Ivanka approached G-iii in 2012, said Aaron. Her then-fashion partner HMX was on the brink of bankruptcy when she cut ties with them that fall. "She came and spoke to us, and we felt there was a definitive 'miss' in the industry -- that young professional woman," he said.

The Ivanka of four years ago wasn't quite the household name she is today, but she benefited from her position within both the Trump family and the Trump Organization, itself no stranger to licensing deals.

"She was trading off the Trump name in 2012,"

Obama branded America a 'racist society' in unpublished manuscript claims biographer
Daily Mail UK ^ | April 9, 2017 | Emily Crane
Posted on 4/9/2017, 2:47:24 PM by COUNTrecount

Obama branded America a 'racist society' in unpublished manuscript claims biographer who says the revelation from his law school days could have scuppered his 2008 presidential bid

Historian David Garrow claims to have uncovered significant revelations about Obama for his upcoming biography on the former president

One revelation was that Obama called America a 'racist society' in an unpublished book he wrote in the 1990s while in law school

Garrow said it was possible some revelations could have derailed Obama's candidacy if they surfaced in 2008 He won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1987 biography on Martin Luther King Jr.

Barack Obama once called America a 'racist society' in an unpublished manuscript from his law school days, according to a Pulitzer Prize winning historian.

Biographer David Garrow says he uncovered a number of significant revelations about the former US president for his upcoming book on Obama's life to be released next month.

Garrow, who spent eight years researching and writing the biography, told The Jamie Weinstein Show that it was quite possible some of the revelations could have derailed Obama's candidacy if they surfaced in 2008.

UNITEDHEALTH 1Q PROFIT SOARS AS ACA BUSINESS SHRINKS
BY TOM MURPHY
AP HEALTH WRITER

Today's charts: Humana, UnitedHealth Group, XLV in focus ahead of vote to repeal Obamacare

 
UnitedHealth's first-quarter profit soared 35 percent as the nation's biggest health insurer slashed participation in Affordable Care Act exchanges but grew just about every other part of its business.

The insurer also hiked its 2017 earnings forecast on Tuesday, and company shares started climbing shortly after it detailed results.

Enrollment in Medicare Advantage plans and the state- and federally funded Medicaid coverage both swelled for UnitedHealth, which also continued to grow an Optum segment that sells several services outside the company's core health insurance.

Operating earnings from that insurance businesses climbed 15 percent to $2.1 billion, even though UnitedHealth's individual enrollment plunged as it withdrew from nearly all the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges. The insurer pulls in most of its enrollment from group insurance coverage offered through employers.

UnitedHealth had warned last year that it expected to lose more than $800 million on individual coverage sold through the Affordable Care Act's exchanges, and the insurer scaled back its participation on those exchanges this year to three states after rapidly expanding to 34.

Several other major insurers like Aetna Inc. and Humana Inc. also have pared participation after booking deep losses on the exchanges, which face an uncertain future as Republicans in Congress mull another attempt at repealing and replacing the federal law.

UnitedHealth is a small player in the exchanges, which are dominated by Blue Cross-Blue Shield-branded plans. The company gave no insight Tuesday into whether it will remain on the exchanges next year, but company officials did say they are still working with policy makers to improve the markets.

CEO Stephen Hemsley also pushed for the permanent repeal of a health insurance tax that was deferred this year. He noted that it will affect coverage affordability.

Outside health insurance, UnitedHealth saw operating earnings climb nearly 16 percent to $1.3 billion from its Optum segment. That business provides pharmacy benefits management and technology services and also operates clinics and doctor's offices. Earlier this year, UnitedHealth stocked that segment with a $2.3 billion purchase of Surgical Care Affiliates, which runs surgery centers.

Overall, the company earned $2.17 billion in the first quarter on $48.72 billion in total revenue. Adjusted results came to $2.37 per share.

Analysts forecast earnings of $2.17 per share on $48.33 billion in revenue.

UnitedHealth now expects adjusted 2017 earnings of between $9.65 and $9.85 per share after predicting $9.30 to $9.60 per share last fall.

Analysts polled by FactSet expect earnings of $9.50 per share.

Shares of UnitedHealth, a component of the Dow Jones industrial average, climbed $1.34 to $168.53 Tuesday morning, as broader indexes slipped.

UnitedHealth is the first health insurer to announce earnings every quarter, and many analysts and investors see it as a bellwether for other insurers.

kind of stupid and totally self serving just to look at GDP especially given that no other POTUS after WWII inherited a economy in free-fall with systemic problems on multiple fronts

Bloomberg looked at 17 different indicators and Obama did much better (again, still not stellar but also have to consider what he was starting with and also the fact that after 2010 he had a full road block from Republicans - the same Republicans)

Serious question. Do you really think that Obama was incompetent? Do you truly believe that the economy today under Trump, which is very very good, is in no way attributed to the previous administration?

One thing to dislike some of the policies, Obama had plenty I don't like, but you can't deny that the US economy by the time Obama was out, was pretty solid.

Yes I do believe obama was incompetent. I believe he was 100% in over his head from day 1 and always felt himself too superior to take advice from others.

I also know that when a POTUS has to pump $10 TRILLION dollars into his failed economy over 8 years to try to prop it up, that is abject failure. Economic growth under obama was as miserable as any of us will see in our lifetimes and he had zero clue how to even begin to try to solve the problem.

I won't even start on his divisiveness, hatred of the military and police, or his utter contempt for the working white middle class. He was a complete fucktard protected by the MSM, Hollywood libs, and the SJWs of the left who screamed racism everytime he was criticized in the slightest way.

I can understand the police and what not, but the military? He bombed the shit out of a lot of places. He must have liked that part. I don't know if he had contempt for the white middle class employed, but let's say he did, I won't say otherwise, but let's focus on the economy.

What would you have done if not pump the money into the economy?

Would you have let those banks fail and let the market correct itself no matter how bad it was? I mean, I was on that side, still am. I would have been perfectly fine letting a lot of banks and auto manufacturers and what not collapse.

That said, every economist, both conservative and liberal, said you had to inject the money, and only some fringe people disagreed with it.

So was everyone basically a failure at the same time? Like I said, I would have let it collapse, but then I can't say I'm an economist, so what I would have done may not have been the right thing.

Does Trump get to proclaim that his economy is great without giving any credit to the previous administration at all? I mean, it's not even been 100 days.

The economy today is ALL Obama.  Just like the bad economy at this time in 2009 was ALL Bush.  It takes more than 90 days to turn things around or tank them entirely.  Unfortunately, I believe the latter
is on the way.

Obama deceived Turkey about PKK, Trump won’t: President Erdogan
KOM News ^ | 20 April 2017 | none stated
Posted on 4/20/2017, 10:28:53

Former US President Barack Obama deceived Turkey by failing to abide by an agreement about the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with Al Jazeera broadcast on Wednesday.

“With President Obama, we had a mutual agreement about the PKK – but Obama deceived us. I don’t believe the Trump administration will do the same,” Erdogan said in regards to American support for the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group Ankara claims is affiliated to the outlawed PKK.


The Turkish President has called several times on his new US counterpart to ditch support for the YPG, a group hailed as being the most effective force fighting the extremist Islamic State (IS) group in Syria.

“The YPG is an arm of the PKK. We must put an end to this,” Erdogan said. “We can’t destroy one terrorist group with another one. We are strategic partners with the US.”

Meanwhile the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is led by the YPG, have encircled the last major cities, Tabqa and Raqqa, in IS’ hands and are awaiting a final plan to storm the latter.

A US military official in March said the SDF did not pose a threat to Turkey.

Speaking to Rudaw, US Colonel John Dorrian, said US troops on the ground in Manbij were there to “to make sure there is no security incident and to make sure there is no persistent YPG presence in the city, or anything that would threaten Turkey because we are also committed to Turkey’s security.”

Erdogan and Trump are set to meet at the NATO Summit in Brussels on 24 May.

Obama launches Chicago trip with visit to South Side job training group

Former President Barack Obama, on a two-day visit to Chicago that began Sunday, met privately with at-risk young men on the South Side to talk about gang violence, jobs skills and employment, a spokesman said.

The meeting was with participants in a program created by Obama's longtime friend and former education secretary, Arne Duncan — and signified a return to Obama's roots as a community organizer 30 years ago on the South Side.

"He said he grew up during that time because of the work he was doing," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said.

Now the former president wants to solicit ideas and information on "how we can turn things around" in areas hit hard by crime....

Obama says immigrants being treated like Irish during Famine

Posted on 4/26/2017, 4:11:09 PM


Barack Obama said that immigrants to the US are being demonised in the same way as Irish people who arrived in America after the Famine.

In his first public speech since leaving office, the former US President said the Irish were treated like the “other” in the 19th century just like Muslims are today. Mr Obama drew parallels between the two periods in American history and that in both immigration policy was “‘driven by biases”.

Obama Turns Out To Be A Greedy One-Percenter
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 4/27/2017 | Staff
Posted on 4/28/2017, 7:00:38 AM by IBD editorial writer

Money in Politics: President Obama's devotees no doubt had hoped he would come out swinging against President Trump. Instead, the only thing he's done so far is cash in on his presidency with a massive book deal and a six-figure speech gig.

Earlier this month, Obama reportedly signed a book deal with Penguin Random House for more than $65 million for one book written by him and another written by Michelle. (The exact amount wasn't made public.) Assuming that figure is correct and they both write 500 page books, that amounts to roughly $144 per word for each of them.

After writing 370 words — less than two manuscript pages — the Obamas will have made as much as the typical American family earns in an entire year.

Even though the Obamas are clearing roughly four times what Bill Clinton made on his post-presidential memoir and more than six times what George W. Bush got, the eye-popping advance generated no real controversy.

Not so Obama's decision to accept a $400,000 speaking gig at a health care conference sponsored by Wall Street investment firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

During the speech at the Pierre Hotel in New York City, Obama delivered a sly dig at his successor's prolific tweeting. Obama was asked how he coped with frustrating moments as president, and responded: 'By not having a Twitter account.'

As President Obama came under fire for scheduling a $400,000 speaking gig at a Wall Street firm next fall, he pocketed the same amount for a speech Thursday night for A&E Networks.

Michelle Obama: 'I won't run for office' for my children
BBC ^ | April 28, 2017
Posted on 4/28/2017, 2:05:09 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

Former First Lady Michelle Obama appeared to rule out running for elected office during her first public remarks since leaving the White House.

"It's all well and good until you start running, and then the knives come out." It's hard on a family, she said. "I wouldn't ask my children to do this again because when you run for higher office, it's not just you. It's your whole family."

But "public service will always be in our blood", she added.

Although Mrs Obama had played down her political ambitions before, while first lady, this is the first time she has done so since the election campaign, when she was widely viewed as the most effective weapon in the Democratic armoury.

Michelle Obama’s ‘Legacy’ Unraveling=> Trump’s Agriculture Dept Unveils New Rules For School Lunches
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | Apr 30th, 2017
Posted on 4/30/2017, 2:21:27 PM by Helicondelta

Good news! Michelle Obama’s inedible school lunches are about to be a thing of the past. Michelle Obama admittedly loves enchiladas and french fries (and her figure showed it), but she loved to lecture everyone else’s children about eating vegetables.

This is what you get with an elite, overreaching government, folks; they tell your children what to eat.

Via The Daily Caller:

Perdue and Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts will release a new interim rule “designed to provide flexibility for school meals” at an elementary school in Leesburg, Va. Monday, a USDA press release stated. The exact nature of the interim rule is unclear, but the USDA said it will provide “regulatory flexibility” for public schools.

School children hated Michelle Obama’s lunch program. The food went to waste because the children couldn’t stomach it. Typical leftist policy–good intentions, bad results.

First on CNN: Trump administration ending Michelle Obama's girls education program
CNN ^ | May 1, 2017 | By Kevin Liptak
Posted on 5/1/2017, 4:00:06 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

The Trump administration is discontinuing a signature girls education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama, according to officials.

The "Let Girls Learn" program, which she and President Barack Obama started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately, according to an internal document obtained by CNN.

News of the program's end came the same day President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary, Sonny Perdue, was visiting an elementary school in suburban Virginia to announce changes to another initiative spotlighted by the former first lady, healthy school lunches.

Perdue was set to unveil a rule change "providing regulatory flexibility for the National School Lunch Program" during a visit to Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg. Like "Let Girls Learn," improving the nutritional quality of school meals was a major focus of Obama's during her tenure as first lady.

Welcome Back, Chocolate Milk: USDA Makes Changes to School Lunch Programs

The USDA wants to make lunches "appealing" again.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue visited an elementary school in Virginia yesterday to commemorate School Nutrition Employee Week, and used the appearance to announce major changes to nutrition standards in school lunch programs. Federal requirements will be relaxed in several categories, allowing more local control of student nutrition.

"This announcement is the result of years of feedback from students, schools, and food service experts about the challenges they are facing in meeting the final regulations for school meals," Perdue said. "If kids aren't eating the food, and it's ending up in the trash, they aren't getting any nutrition – thus undermining the intent of the program."

President Obama's team sought NSA intel on thousands of Americans during the 2016 election
Circa News ^ | May 3, 2017 | by John Solomon
Posted on 5/4/2017, 7:07:21 AM by Oldeconomybuyer

During his final year in office, President Barack Obama's team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.

In all, government officials conducted 30,355 searches in 2016 seeking information about Americans in NSA intercept metadata, which include telephone numbers and email addresses.

The government in 2016 also scoured the actual contents of NSA intercepted calls and emails for 5,288 Americans, an increase of 13 percent over the prior year and a massive spike from the 198 names searched in 2013.

About half the time, U.S. identities were unredacted in the original reports while the other half were unmasked after the fact by special request of Obama administration officials.

Among those whose names were unmasked in 2016 or early 2017 were campaign or transition associates of President Donald Trump as well as members of Congress and their staffers, according to sources with direct knowledge.

Last Major Healthcare Provider Pulls Out Of Iowa Leaving No Options In 2018

For the past several months we've observed in complete amazement as Democrats have repeatedly hailed the 'great accomplishments' of Obamacare while the system was literally, and quite tangibly, collapsing in epic fashion all around them.  The ability to blindly and shamelessly support a partisan cause irrestpective of overwhelming facts proving the ineffectiveness of that cause is truly a talent reserved only for politicians, on both sides of the aisle.

The latest evidence of Obamacare's implosion comes from its stunning collapse in the state of Iowa in just a matter of a few weeks.  Early last month, 2 of Iowa's 3 remaining healthcare providers, Aetna and Wellmark, announced they would not participate in the state's exchange in 2018.

Per Bloomberg:

“Earlier today we informed the appropriate federal and state regulators that Aetna will not participate in the Iowa individual public exchange for 2018 as a result of financial risk and an uncertain outlook for the marketplace,” Aetna spokesman T.J. Crawford said in an email. “We are still evaluating Aetna’s 2018 individual product presence in our remaining states.”
On Monday, Wellmark Inc. said it planned to give up on the Iowa Obamacare market in 2018. Wellmark is one of the state’s largest insurers.

Aetna will exit Obamacare markets in Virginia in 2018, citing expected losses on individual plans this year

Giant insurer Aetna on Wednesday continued an ongoing retreat from the Obamacare business, announcing it will not sell such health plans in Virginia next year because of expected financial losses.

Aetna left open the question of whether it will sell individual health plans anywhere next year.

The insurer, which last month announced it would exit Iowa's Obamacare market in 2018, sells individual plans in just two other states this year: Delaware and Nebraska.

"Despite significantly reducing our exchange footprint, our individual commercial products could potentially lose more than $200 million in 2017," said Aetna spokesman T.J. Crawford in an email.

"Based on that financial risk, and growing uncertainty in the marketplace, we will not offer on- or off-exchange individual plans in Virginia for 2018."

BERLIN (AP) — Barack Obama received a rock-star welcome in Berlin as he appeared at a public debate Thursday with Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom he praised as one of his "favorite partners" during his presidency.

...

At the beginning of their discussion, Obama praised Merkel to the excited cheers of a crowd of young Protestants, who had traveled from all over Germany and beyond to attend the religious gathering.

"Not only do I love this city, but one of my favorite partners throughout my presidency is sitting next to me," Obama said with a big smile. Merkel smiled right back at him.

Posted on 5/25/2017, 12:15:16 PM by Olog-hai

Former United States President Barack Obama said at a Berlin reunion with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday that he was “heartbroken” by a suicide bombing that killed 22 people in Manchester.

“We can see the terrible violence that took place just recently in Manchester… it’s a reminder that there is great danger of terrorism and people who would do great harm to others just because they’re different,” Obama told a crowd at the German capital’s Brandenburg Gate.

He and Merkel had sent a joint message of condolence to the families of those killed in the Monday attack during a concert by US pop star Ariana Grande, he added.

“We had a chance backstage to send a message to the people of Manchester about how heartbroken we are by the loss of life,” Obama said. …

How is repealing Obama's failed policies and his agenda in general being a "childish chump"?

You honestly think Trump is going to get his agenda pushed through?  His budget is absolutely comical.  Worst document that's ever been seen by the government, people are just laughing at it.  What about that nice big wall?  He can't get his health care reform passed either.  He is the laughing stock of the entire world, and so is our country now.

BREAKING: Obama's FBI Passed Around Classified Information On American Citizens To People Outside Government

A shocking report from Circa.com revealed on Friday that the FBI under director James Comey “illegally shared raw intelligence about Americans with unauthorized third parties and violated other constitutional privacy protections, according to newly declassified government documents.” That’s a bombshell charge — Comey told Congress earlier this month that the FBI only used warrantless data that was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked” — but the specifics are even more damning.

According to Circa, one ruling from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) “list[ed] hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch.” That included giving intelligence data to third parties who weren’t cleared to see it, among them “a private entity that did not have the legal right to see the intelligence.” The FBI claims that the number of violations is small by percentage of all data operations.

Trump acolytes will undoubtedly suggest that this is precisely what happened with Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, who was caught up in surveillance of Russian third parties, unmasked by the Obama administration, and then revealed to the press by someone in the know. They will suggest that we now know that the FBI was often exceeding its mandate by searching data without a warrant that they should not have, and by occasionally allowing that information to flow outside of established channels.

In reality, the business of national security is sloppy. Mistakes will undoubtedly be made. The question is twofold: what sort of mistakes were made with regard to leaking the identity of Flynn to the press? And more generally, were the systems in place for restricting the free flow of classified information about American citizens sufficient?

Obama Regulation Could Leave Millions of Retirees Without Investment Guidance
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 5/30/17 | Bill McMorris
Posted on 5/31/2017



One of the Obama administration's final major labor regulations could deprive millions of retirement savers investment advice from financial professionals, according to a new report.

The Department of Labor proposed the Fiduciary Rule in April 2015, which would allow regulators to oversee the relationship between retirement account advisors and their clients to ensure that the former were completing trades for the sole interest of their clients. The rule was approved in 2016 under the leadership of Labor Secretary Tom Perez, now the head of the Democratic Party.

"In 2016, the Department took a historic step to protect the savings of America's workers—the conflict of interest rule makes sure that professionals providing retirement investment advice have to give advice that’s in the best interest of their clients and not divert their clients' hard-earned income into their own pockets through hidden fees and conflicted advice," Perez said in an exit memo published on the White House website.

The Chamber of Commerce's Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness said in a new report that the regulation will have unintended consequences that could drive up costs for workers saving for retirement and prevent small investors from receiving financial advice from professionals. The regulation would give financial firms incentives to move away from commission-based management to fee-based management, which could hinder those with smaller accounts from gaining access to retirement advice because of the "substantial threat of unwarranted litigation."

The report found that "up to 7 million individual retirement account (IRA) owners could lose access to investment advice altogether" and that 92 percent of investment firms "could limit or restrict investment products for their customers, which could ultimately effect some 11 million households." The report is based off of a comprehensive collection of surveys and data gathered by independent and industry groups, as well as public comments submitted to the Labor Department after it introduced the rule. It concludes that the department "underestimated the negative effects of the rule, particularly in reducing access to advice for small retirement savers and small businesses."

"The theoretical academic exercises underlying the Rule are giving way to hard evidence, and the evidence is coming in showing that the rule is harming American investors. This new data, based on actual experience, demonstrates that the DOL's original predictions were wrong," the report says. "The DOL has overstepped both its jurisdiction and its expertise."

President Trump ordered the department to review the rule in February as part of his deregulation agenda. Opponents of the rule hoped that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta would delay its implementation. Rep. Phil Roe, a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and 123 other congressmen sent a letter to Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on May 2 urging him to "delay this rule in its entirety."

Acosta indicated in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that the department would move forward with the rule, while leaving open the possibility of amending it. He said that he would follow through on Trump's call for a review of the regulation and seek additional public comment and input from the industry, as well as financial watchdogs.

"Respect for the rule of law leads us to the conclusion that this date cannot be postponed," he wrote. "Trust in Americans' ability to decide what is best for them and their families leads us to the conclusion that we should seek public comment on how to revise this rule."

Congressional Republicans have been critical of Acosta's decision to move forward with the rule. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R., NC), chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, said that delaying implementation "does not provide the relief workers and families urgently need from a deeply flawed rule."

"If this is the path the department is determined to take, then it must quickly develop a responsible solution for dealing with a regulatory scheme that will make it harder and more costly for low- and middle-income families to save for retirement," Foxx said in a statement. "The last administration inflicted a lot of pain on workers, families, and small businesses, and it is going to take bold leadership to undo the damage that's been done and pursue a better course.‎"

The department will begin implementing the rule on June 9.

President Obama May be Breaking the Logan Act By Conniving with Foreign Governments
GP ^ | 07/05/17 | Jim Hoft
Posted on 7/5/2017, 9:40:34 AM by Enlightened1



 

President Obama is engaged in acts that may go against the Logan Act which prohibits Americans from committing treason by acting with other governments against the US.

A summary of the Logan Act follows:

The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 [1948]) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization.

Congress established the Logan Act in 1799, less than one year after passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts, which authorized the arrest and deportation of Aliens and prohibited written communication defamatory to the U.S. government. The 1799 act was named after Dr. George Logan.

Disgraced President Obama ended his Presidency with the worst economic results since the early 1900’s and the Middle East on fire but this has not stopped him from meddling in foreign affairs with foreign governments around the world.  For example, last week President Trump met with the leader of South Korea and this week fallen President Obama arranged a meeting the Korean leader.  If the President discussed any topics related to US policy which do not agree with President Trump’s policies, the discredited former President likely broke the law.

Donald Trump faced criticism on Tuesday for a speech to the annual Boy Scouts of America jamboree in West Virginia in which he urged his audience of 12- to 18-year-olds to boo Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, pitched for Republican healthcare reform and bragged, again, about the size of his electoral college victory.



While national voices criticised Trump’s injection of politics into a notionally apolitical event, parents of scouts responded with unadorned scorn.

One user of the Boy Scouts of America Facebook page posted: “As a Cub Scout den leader and mom of 2 scouts, I am livid … Make my boys and I proud to be part of Boy Scouts instead of embarrassed!”

Early in his remarks, Trump seemed poised to follow tradition and remain nonpartisan and upbeat.

“Tonight we put aside all of the policy fights in Washington DC you’ve been hearing about,” he said, before a crowd of more than 40,000. “Who the hell wants to speak about politics?”

But his rhetorical detente didn’t last long, as Trump seemingly couldn’t resist the temptation of going through some of the greatest hits from the raucous rallies he held on the campaign trail and has continued to stage while in office. By early Tuesday morning, it was clear this was deeply unpopular with parents, leading some to question their continued association with the organization.

“Son was in Cub Scouts and my husband was a den leader,” wrote one Facebook user. “It’s going to hurt to explain to those Cub Scouts why I can’t support their troop this year … but I’ll do it.”

Highest on the list of grievances among parents seemed to be Trump having told a rambling story about parties thrown by “New York’s hottest people” and the segregationist builder William Levitt, and his encouragement of booing of Clinton and Obama – the latter once a Boy Scout himself.

“I was horrified that Trump would address the scouts at jamboree with inappropriate stories and booing – booing! – a past president,” wrote the mother of an Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest rank.

Trump is the eighth president to attend the National Scout Jamboree, which is typically held every four years. Obama did not attend a jamboree but he did address a 100th anniversary event in 2010 by video. Each president serves as honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America.

The organization said in a statement that it does not promote any political candidate or philosophy.

Regardless of that stance, Trump used his soapbox to attempt to rally support for repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the signature legislative achievement of his predecessor on which many West Virginia residents have come to depend for access to health insurance.

Trump jokingly threatened to fire his health secretary, Tom Price, another former Boy Scout, if an impending vote to repeal the act was not successful.

“Hopefully he’s going to get the votes tomorrow to start our path toward killing this horrible thing known as Obamacare,” Trump said, before turning to Price.

“He better get ’em,” Trump said, before reprising the catchphrase from his one-time reality TV hit, The Apprentice: “Otherwise, I’ll say: ‘Tom, you’re fired.’”

Trump also singled out the West Virginia senator Shelley Moore Capito, who has expressed reservations about the Republican healthcare bill.

“You better get Senator Capito to vote for it,” he said, in remarks directed towards Price. “You gotta get the other senators to vote for it. It’s time.”

Later, as he recited parts of the Scout oath, Trump paused at the word “loyalty”.

“We could use some more loyalty, I’ll tell you that,” mused the man who reportedly demanded such from James Comey, the FBI director he fired.

That speech was the ramblings of an insane person

He seems to not realize he's talking to boy scouts and not make a stump speech to his typical crowd of brain dead supporters

Also, would have been nice for him to bring or even mention Jeff Sessions who just happens to have been an Eagle Scout

He did make an incoherent statement about loyalty which many think was a reference to Sessions but wasn't exactly a compliment

Ok , can you take a minute to give me a real answer to a serious question I have:

*Why is it always Trump can do no wrong and Obama does nothing right, with you guys?

You sound like some butt hurt ex-gf after a guy breaks up with her.


Howard, that's an absurd generalization.

Trump makes mistakes...he didn't prosecute Hillary yet, so that's a mistake.

And obama got some things right like...



Okay, the Muslim sympathizing, anti-American, white-hating, incompetent, scrawny homo Tootsie Roll never got anything right and remains a piece of shit to this day.

Illinois makes 'Barack Obama Day' a state holiday

By Brandon Carter - 08/06/17 02:25 PM EDT

Former President Obama is being honored with a new state holiday in his former state of Illinois.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed a measure Friday to make Aug. 4 “Barack Obama Day” in the state, according to NBC Chicago. The holiday will be celebrated each year on Obama’s birthday beginning in 2018.

The day is “set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities.”

Senate Bill 55 was passed by both state houses with no votes against it.

Rauner praised the idea behind the bill earlier this year after a previous version, which would have made the day a legal state holiday, failed. The new holiday is commemorative.

"It's incredibly proud for Illinois that the president came from Illinois. I think it's awesome, and I think we should celebrate it," Rauner said at the time, according to NBC Chicago. "I don't think it should be a formal holiday with paid, forced time off, but I think it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration."

Obama administration knew about North Korea's miniaturized nukes In 2013
Fox News ^
Posted on 8/9/2017, 10:11:22 PM by JP1201

Tuesday's bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

North Korean statements. Rumours of an impending nuclear test circulated during 2005 and early 2006, though none came to immediate fruition. On October 3, 2006, however, North Korea claimed that it would soon conduct a nuclear test, and on October 9, 2006, the state claimed to have successfully conducted a test.

Why didn't GW deal with the threat?

Obamas looking to buy a $15 million vacant lot on Martha's Vineyard
canadafreepress.com ^ | 8/31/2017 | Robert Laurie
Posted on 8/31/2017, 12:44:53 PM by rktman

Conservatives generally believe that the accumulation and maintenance of wealth is a good thing. We like money, we admire success, and we don’t view those who’ve achieved a significant fortune with contempt. We’re aware that well-funded bank accounts provide employment, stimulate the economy, and keep the country humming along.

The left disagrees. If you’re rich, you aren’t paying your fair share. Heck, even if you’re not rich you should be taxed more. To them, the wealthy are like dragons - sleeping on a mountain of ill-gotten gold - lording over the peasants with filthy, probably-stolen, lucre that they couldn’t spend in a hundred lifetimes. No one needs all that cash, and really you should only have what you the government decides you should be allowed to keep. As we know, they never self-apply this standard. We’ve done a thousand pieces on how leftist-statism is built on a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do foundation, but fatcat Dems keep offering new examples. It’s just so easy to point out their hypocrisy, that we’d be fools to stop doing it.

Enter former President Barack Obama: a man who wants to “spread the wealth around” and who once famously said “at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

...According to Realtor.com, he’s looking to purchase one of two vacant lots on his favorite vacation Island, Martha’s Vineyard. Of course, he doesn’t want to live inland like some commoner, so both properties are ocean front. They’re also not cheap. The man who wonders when ‘enough is enough’ is looking at plots that start at $12 million and, remember, that’s without a house.

Obama tried to give Zuckerberg a wake-up call over fake news on Facebook
San Jose Mercury-News ^ | November 1, 2017 | By Adam Entous |The Washington Post
Posted on 11/1/2017, 4:17:02 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

Nine days after Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg dismissed as “crazy” the idea that fake news on his company’s social network played a key role in the U.S. election, President Barack Obama pulled the youthful tech billionaire aside and delivered what he hoped would be a wake-up call.

For months leading up to the vote, Obama and his top aides quietly agonized over how to respond to Russia’s brazen intervention on behalf of the Donald Trump campaign without making matters worse. Weeks after Trump’s surprise victory, some of Obama’s aides looked back with regret and wished they had done more.

Now huddled in a private room on the sidelines of a meeting of world leaders in Lima, Peru, two months before Trump’s inauguration, Obama made a personal appeal to Zuckerberg to take the threat of fake news and political disinformation seriously. Unless Facebook and the government did more to address the threat, Obama warned, it would only get worse in the next presidential race.

Zuckerberg acknowledged the problem posed by fake news. But he told Obama those messages weren’t widespread on Facebook and that there was no easy fix, according to people briefed on the exchange, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details of a private conversation.

In the electrified aftermath of the election, aides to Hillary Clinton and Obama pored over polling numbers and turnout data, looking for clues to explain what they saw as an unnatural turn of events.

One of the theories to emerge from their post-mortem was that Russian operatives who were directed by the Kremlin to support Trump may have taken advantage of Facebook and other social media platforms to direct their messages to American voters in key demographic areas in order to increase enthusiasm for Trump and suppress support for Clinton.

Barack Obama: We need to elect more women because 'men are having problems'
The Telegraph (UK) ^
Posted on 12/4/2017, 7:16:24 AM by TigerClaws

Barack Obama has called for more women to be elected to office because "because men seem to be having some problems these days."

AFP reported that the former President made these remarks while talking to a private event in Paris on Saturday, and was referring to the sexual misconduct allegations made against many high-profile men.

He said: "Not to generalize but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly because of their socialisation."

At the event, which was arranged by a network of communications professionals known as the Napoleons, Obama did not mention President Donald Trump.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––

However, he did mention a "temporary absence of American leadership" with regards to climate change.

His remarks about this inspired laughter in the room, which was packed with French CEOs and former ministers.

India needs to 'cherish and nurture' its Muslims: Barack Obama
Economic Times ^ | December 2, 2017
Posted on 12/4/2017, 10:02:08 AM by Zakeet

India needs to "cherish and nurture" its Muslim population, which is integrated and considers itself Indian, former US president Barack Obama has said. It is an idea that needs to be reinforced, he emphasised at an event of a media organisation in New Delhi on Friday.

[Snip]

Replying to a question, Obama spoke of India's "enormous Muslim population", which is successful, integrated and thinks of itself as Indian. That is unfortunately not always the case in some other countries, Obama added.

Referring to India, he said, "And that is something that needs to be cherished and nurtured, cultivated. It’s important to continue reinforcing it." To a separate question, he said Modi’s "impulse" was to recognise the importance of Indian unity. "I think he firmly believes the need for that in order to advance to the great nation status," Obama said.

Asked about terror emanating from Pakistan, Obama said, "What is true, and an understandable source of frustration, ...

Susan Collins now pushing for $10 billion for Obamacare stabilization bill
CBS "News" ^ | December 5, 2017
Posted on 12/5/2017, 1:49:49 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

Sen. Susan Collins is now pushing for twice the amount of money she originally requested in an Obamacare bill she's co-sponsoring in order to win her vote on the tax overhaul measure, The Hill reports.

The Maine Republican is co-sponsoring a bill with Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida, that would provide states with $10 billion over two years to establish reinsurance programs to lower premiums or high-risk pools. They had originally requested $4.5 billion in the bill, the report said.

"This plan will provide $5 billion annually for two years in seed money for states to establish invisible high-risk pools or traditional reinsurance programs," Collins said in a statement Friday, the report said.

President Trump told Collins before the Senate's tax bill vote that he supported legislation to stabilize the insurance markets and to fund states' high-risk pools.

Obama’s Failed Stimulus Still Fleecing Taxpayers
Townhall.com ^ | December 5, 2017 | David Williams
Posted on 12/06/2017 10:34:43 AM PST by Kaslin

It’s not healthy to dwell on the past. But, for the taxpayers across the country, it is important to learn from past mistakes. The continued problems with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), aka Stimulus Plan, is a good lesson as to what not to do. The nearly trillion-dollar spending package, passed on a party-line vote in 2009, was supposed to rocket the economy out of the recession.

The law funded absurd projects such as a snowmaking facility in Duluth, Minn., math and literacy coaches for North Carolina’s public school teachers, and a $3 million tunnel for turtles in Florida.

Still, then-President Obama promised up to 500,000 new construction jobs a month. Vice President Joe Biden declared the summer of 2010 as the “Recovery Summer.” Administration officials heralded “an explosion of projects” across the country. It couldn’t be all bad, right?

But as the air turned crisp and the shadows grew longer, even the taxpayer-funded National Public Radio couldn’t spin the results. “’Recovery Summer’ Ends with Economic Pothole,” read a September headline.

The failure of Obama’s stimulus plan would be laughable if it didn’t carry an $835 billion price tag. Or if it wasn’t still fleecing taxpayers.

But sadly, the disastrous impact of the stimulus hasn’t ended with the Obama administration. The ARRA is back in the news nine years after it was enacted and a year after Obama left office.

According to the South Bend Tribune, “two local lawyers claim 62 Indiana hospitals, including two in St. Joseph County, systematically falsified records and defrauded taxpayers of more than $300 million.”

The lawyers allege the hospitals in Indiana took federal grant money made available through the ARRA to implement electronic medical records systems. Only it doesn’t appear that they implemented the electric records systems at all.

“The lawsuit says the pair found that in 2013, Memorial Hospital reported 16 requests for electronic medical records and claimed it provided all 16 within the required three business day period,” the South Bend Tribune reports. “The lawyers allege that on five occasions between April and Dec. 2013, they received records in an electronic format only once and none of the records were issued within three business days, contradicting what the hospital reported. The pair claim to have found similar discrepancies with the other three hospitals.”

When it comes to taxpayer boondoggles, $300 million is just the tip of the iceberg. If the allegations are true, hospitals were able to siphon off nearly $5 million each on average. Investigations around the country can and will likely yield “discrepancies” totaling tens of billions of dollars.

Regardless of the pitfalls of the stimulus package, most Americans have reasonably assumed that the worst is behind them, with the nearly trillion dollars long flushed away. Unfortunately, taxpayers are not off the hook just yet for gargantuan spending passed nearly nine years ago. This episode serves as a cruel reminder that government programs linger on long after they have run their course or have been demonstrated to be useless, even harmful.

This is another teachable moment about the fallacy of Keynesian-style government stimulus and the wastefulness of unnecessary government spending. Despite this, and other reprehensible findings about the misuse of stimulus funds, it’s unlikely that politicians in Washington will learn their lessons.

Obama warns his presidency may be reduced to a footnote in history.
Crain's Chicogo Buiness ^ | 12/6/17 | Greg Hinz
Posted on 12/7/2017, 1:09:40 PM by Renkluaf

American democracy is fragile, and unless care is taken it could follow the path of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

Mixed in with many softer comments, that was the somewhat jaw-dropping bottom line of Barack Obama last night as, in a Q&A session before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Chicagoan who used to be president dropped a bit of red meat to a hometown crowd that likely is a lot closer to him than the man whose name never was mentioned: President Donald Trump.

Obama's comments came after a series of playful questions from moderator and Ariel Investments President Mellody Hobson—in the great Batman vs. Superman debate, for instance, we learned Obama sides with Batman—before she eventually asked him what he's learned as a world citizen of sorts.

One thing he's learned is that "things don't happen internationally if we don't put our shoulder to the wheel," Obama said, speaking of the U.S. "No other country has the experience and bandwidth and ideals. . . .If the U.S. doesn't do it, it's not going to happen."

Obama gave one specific example, but it was a solid one: Ebola. To fight the virus the U.S. did everything from build an airport tarmac in Africa to send in medical teams and ferry medicos from other countries. "We probably saved a million lives by doing that," he said.

At least indirectly, those comments could be seen as criticism of Trump, whose foreign policy focuses on an "America first" paradigm that critics say distracts from this country's unique role.

Obama moved from that to talking about a nativist mistrust and unease that has swept around the world. He argued that such things as the speed of technical change and the uneven impact of globalization have come too quickly to be absorbed in many cultures, bringing strange new things and people to areas in which "people didn't (used to) challenge your assumptions." As a result, "nothing feels solid," he said. "Sadly, there's something in us that looks for simple answers when we're agitated."

Still, the U.S. has survived tough times before and will again, he noted, particularly mentioning the days of communist fighter Joseph McCarthy and former President Richard Nixon. But one reason the country survived is because it had a free press to ask questions, Obama added. Though he has problems with the media just like Trump has had, "what I understood was the principle that the free press was vital."

The danger is "grow(ing) complacent," Obama said. "We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly."

That's what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate, Obama noted. "Sixty million people died. . . .So, you've got to pay attention. And vote."

Obama said his greatest "regret and disappointment" was the failure to enact tighter controls on gun possession. Though the issue resonates in far different ways with different parts of the population, "something is broke," Obama said, his own voice breaking, as he talked about 6-year-old girls shot to death at Sandy Hook, girls not too different in age from his own daughters.

To the best of my knowledge, the session, which went well over an hour, represented the lengthiest comments the former president has made in a semi-public setting since he left office.

Admission to the event was open to club members and their guests. Hobson said a record 2,800 people attended, filling two ballrooms at the Chicago Hilton.

How Obama Appeased Iran by Turning a Blind Eye to Hezbollah’s Crimes
National Review ^ | Dec 18, 2017 | David French
Posted on 12/18/2017, 4:21:59 PM by Oshkalaboomboom

A new report shows that in its efforts to reach a nuclear deal with Tehran, the administration went so far as to stop the DEA from cracking down on Hezbollah drug-running.

Over the weekend Politico’s Josh Meyer published a blockbuster report that can’t be allowed to disappear into the void of the holiday season. In painstaking detail, it documents claims that the Obama administration crippled Drug Enforcement Administration operations against Hezbollah as part of its effort to reach a nuclear deal with the Iranian regime.

Why would the DEA, of all agencies, target an international terrorist organization? It turns out that Hezbollah had become a major player in international cocaine trafficking and was using proceeds from its drug-running and arms-dealing to finance — among other things — the purchase of explosively formed penetrators (EFP’s), the deadliest IEDs used against American soldiers in Iraq.

Hezbollah had transformed itself into an “international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year.” The DEA’s “Project Cassandra” was designed to disrupt this syndicate. And just as the operation began reaching into the highest echelons of one of the world’s worst terrorist organizations, the Obama administration started to shut it down:

The Justice Department declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hezbollah’s high-profile envoy to Iran, a Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in alleged drug profits, and a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force. And the State Department rejected requests to lure high-value targets to countries where they could be arrested.

Some former Obama administration officials justified these actions on the basis that the DEA may have interfered with more important anti-terror operations conducted by other intelligence organizations. As one former official put it, the administration couldn’t let the CIA, the DEA, or any other agency “rule the roost.” But other sources confirmed that the administration in fact hindered the DEA for the sake of the Iran deal. For example, former Obama Treasury Department official Katherine Bauer testified to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs that “under the Obama administration . . . these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”

The consequences were deadly. In the most personally painful part of the Politico piece, Meyer details Hezbollah’s role in funding EFPs that “were ripping M1 Abrams tanks in half.” I remember the power of these weapons quite well. A smaller version of an EFP was used to kill men that I knew in Iraq. The mere threat of EFPs at one point shut down all ground supply routes into our base near the Iranian border. It’s a strange feeling indeed to ride down Iraqi roads knowing that there’s a weapon out there that would render all the armor surrounding you virtually irrelevant. EFPs killed hundreds of American soldiers, and they were supplied by the Iranian government and its Hezbollah allies.

But never mind. The Iran deal had to get done. The deal, at least in the Obama administration’s fantasyland, wasn’t just a nuclear deal. It was a step toward hopefully normalizing relations with Iran, bringing the Islamic Republic back into the community of nations. It was a legacy play, and it depended on a complete misunderstanding of the nature of our enemy.

You see, the Obama administration was in many ways captive to the “legitimate grievances” theory of jihad. This theory, outlined most famously in Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech, holds that jihad’s appeal is rooted at least in part in identifiable American and western abuses of the Islamic world. It was the root of the Obama administration’s deluded efforts to initiate a “new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.” The administration would act to address credible Islamic grievances, and that action would and should trigger a good-faith response that would bring us closer to peace.

It all seems so quaint now. When Obama pulled back, our enemies surged. When he gave them an inch, they took a mile. There was no good-faith response, only the gleeful exploitation of newfound strategic advantage. When Obama finally re-engaged, American force was able to stop our enemies’ advance. But by then, the damage was done, and we’re still learning the extent of it today. We already knew that Obama gave Iran piles of cash, prisoners, an immense economic stimulus, and access to international arms markets in exchange for signing the nuclear deal. We now know — thanks to Politico — that the administration’s mercies extended even to Iran’s vicious terrorist allies.

And for what? Obama’s defenders cling to the hope that Iran’s nuclear program has been delayed (a hope that relies a great deal on trusting Iran, which has never proven wise in the past), but in the meantime we’ve merely strengthened our enemy. We’ve addressed those “legitimate grievances,” and Iran has taken our gifts and our goodwill and thrown them right back in our face. Iran and Hezbollah — with Russia’s help — have nearly completed their genocidal reconquest of Syria’s most populated regions. In Iraq, an Iranian general played a key role in the seizure of Kirkuk from our Kurdish allies. Iran hasn’t retreated one inch from its anti-Americanism or its commitment to international jihad. It’s even sending aid (including senior commandos) to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Three years ago, I wrote an extended piece arguing that Obama was idealistic about our enemies. He didn’t understand the depth of their hate. He fell for ridiculous academic theories about American culpability in the rise of jihadist violence. Little did we know how far the ideological rot went. Obama administration mistakes empowered the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East, relieving the pressure on the violent, extremist forces it pays for. These mistakes must be known. They must be remembered. And they must never, ever be repeated. America’s jihadist enemies cannot be appeased.

Chicago Residents Turn On Obama – He Never Saw This Coming
rightwingnews ^ | 20 Dec, 2017 | Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Posted on 12/20/2017, 11:15:13 PM by MarvinStinson

Looks like Barack Obama is going to have to learn to live with disappointment. He has prepared for his presidential library for years. It’s part of his legacy.

When Obama was elected, Chicago treated him literally as if he was the second coming of Christ. He was their favorite son. Nine years later, not so much. They are beginning to see the real Barack Obama at long last.

The citizens of Chicago are balking at the plans for Obama’s library. In its initial bid for the right to host the library, put forth on behalf of the city, the University of Chicago offered large tracts of idyllic land in Washington Park and Jackson Park as two potential sites. Chicagoans were perplexed… their dear leader could build his temple in a more appropriate location. “Why not build it in one of the many blighted areas?” they asked. “Why are you taking a huge chunk of our parks?” That’s when Barack Obama told the city of Chicago that either it would be built in a Chicago park, or he would have his monument built in New York or Honolulu.

After Obama selected Chicago and the Jackson Park site, protests began to grow. Residents of Woodlawn, the park’s district, addressed their local government and wrote op-eds in the city’s papers to let Obama know they were upset. They feared the project would rapidly gentrify the minority-majority area. It could force out people who have lived there forever. And it would likely ruin the park as a community gathering place.

In May of this year, protesters began a campaign to implore the Obama Foundation, the group overseeing the library’s construction, to sign a community benefit agreement (CBA), which would commit the Foundation to setting aside jobs for residents around the library, protecting low-income housing, supporting black-owned businesses and strengthening neighborhood schools. I know you will be shocked, but the Foundation flat out refused. When a resident personally asked Obama to sign the agreement at a September public meeting about the library, Obama refused as well. A man of the people no more.

Obama’s Foundation has steamrolled these people at every stage of the process, showing just how little he cares what they think. The whole thing is ironic on its face. His library is supposed to inspire visitors and locals “to make a positive change in their communities,” yet the project has already begun to alienate the very community it’s meant to change. Hint… he’s a Marxist, that’s what they do in the end.

This is yet another abuse of power on Obama’s part. His library will neither contain his presidential documents, which have all been digitized, nor be administered by the National Archives and Records Administration — the two elements required of a presidential library. In fact, it’s not really a presidential library at all. The Obama Foundation has named it the Obama Presidential “Center.” It’s more of a temple or monument to the perceived greatness of Barack Obama.

The center, according to Obama himself, is a “gift to the community” that will spread his message. A ‘gift’ they are paying for with their taxes. The Foundation explains the ‘gift’ on its website by pointing out that the center itself will be a living testament to the values of Obama’s presidency. It boasts that the center’s design takes into account the expressed views of “Chicagoans like you,” and that the Foundation will “continue to ask for and incorporate your feedback every step of the way.”

When the center is finished, it will include a community garden, a “test kitchen” and a recording studio where visitors will be able to “create their own songs, speeches, short films, and interviews,” according to the Foundation’s website.

The residents have said countless times they don’t want the center. They want their park, their low-cost housing and their culture. They want Barack Obama to actually listen to them the way he claims to. This is change they can’t believe in just as we all predicted.

OBAMA ALLOWED HEZBOLLAH TO TRAFFIC COCAINE IN U.S.
barbwire ^ | 21 December, 2017 | Louis DeBroux
Posted on 12/21/2017, 8:50:01 AM by MarvinStinson

“The Obama administration has been remarkably scandal-free.” —New York Times faux conservative columnist David Brooks, Feb. 9, 2016

Scandal-free-----as long as you ignore the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal, IRS targeting of conservative groups, trading five hardened terrorists for traitor Bowe Bergdahl, a private email server and use of aliases between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Benghazi, NSA warrantless collection of every American’s private communications, etc., etc., etc.

But this latest bombshell may be the most shocking violation of the public trust yet.

As revealed in an in-depth investigative report by Politico, Obama used his presidential power to cripple Project Cassandra, an aggressive DEA operation targeting a cocaine trafficking operation run by the Islamic terrorist group Hezbollah. The DEA had collected ample evidence showing Hezbollah had evolved from a Middle Eastern terrorist organization into “an international crime syndicate … collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.”

According to the report, Hezbollah is a major supplier of cocaine to the U.S., using the violent Los Zetas drug cartel to move the drugs from Mexico into the U.S., to the tune of $200 million per month. The drug money would then be laundered through a network of 300 American used car dealers by purchasing cars that would then be shipped to Benin on the west coast of Africa. The car dealerships in West Africa would then take those billions in profits and send them to Hezbollah-friendly banks, which would then fund additional terrorist attacks.

Why would Obama do this?

Specifically, Obama sabotaged the DEA operation to appease Iran (Hezbollah is a proxy for Iran) during negotiations of the nuclear deal, which Obama saw as crucial to his legacy.

As detailed in Politico, after amassing enough evidence to make its move against Hezbollah, the DEA was thwarted by the Obama administration as it sought to go after the major players. For example, Obama’s Justice Department denied Project Cassandra’s requests to file criminal charges against Hezbollah’s “high profile” Iranian envoy, a Lebanese banker who had laundered billions in drug money for the organization and who was “a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force.” The Obama State Department also refused requests to lure “high-value targets” to U.S.-friendly countries so they could be arrested.

Furthermore, Obama prevented the DEA and FBI from going after Hezbollah operations being conducted on U.S. soil, refusing prosecution of a Hezbollah official in Philadelphia who facilitated the sale of what Politico called “1,200 Colt M4 military-grade assault rifles” that were shipped to Lebanon. Of course, it is possible that Obama was simply trying to avoid the appearance of favoritism between the Islamic terrorists and the violent Mexican drug cartels to which he had previously sold weaponry.

This is particularly enraging because Iran was taking these drug profits and funding terrorist attacks, including the financing of Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs), the most lethal type of IEDs, capable of “ripping M1 Abrams tanks in half” and responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq.

During testimony before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, former Obama Treasury Department official Katherine Bauer testified that “under the Obama administration … these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”

Jack Kelly, the veteran DEA supervisory agent tapped to form and lead the Cassandra task force, said, “The FBI and other parts of the USG [U.S. government] provide a little or no assistance during our investigations. The USG lack of action on this issue has allowed [Hezbollah] to become one of the biggest transnational organized crime groups in the world.”

David Asher was the Defense Department illicit finance analyst who helped establish Project Cassandra and then provided oversight. According to Asher, the task force had, if anything, underestimated the scope and significance of Hezbollah’s operation, which was funding coordinated terrorism efforts between Islamic jihad and Iran. Asher testified before Congress that the operation represented the “largest material support scheme for terrorist operations” the world had ever seen.

Oh, and by the way, it was Obama’s mentor, the racist “Rev.” Jeremiah Wright, who once accused the CIA of allowing drugs into the country to poison poor black communities. No, it was actually his protégé.

Sadly, Obama’s actions are in line with his fundamental view of America as the source of much of the world’s ills, and the Middle East’s in particular. During his infamous 2009 apology tour, Obama directed much of the blame for Mideast violence on America’s foreign policy in the region, making a concerted effort to bestow international legitimacy on the Iranian regime.

An astute observer will recall that Obama also paid a $1.7 billion bribe to Iran, flying in the first $400 million, stacked on pallets in a cargo plane, in order to get around the U.S. and international sanctions that had effectively isolated the Iranian banking system from world financial markets. The deal also gave Iran access to the international arms market. And that’s not to mention the dangerous seven Iranian-born prisoners Obama released…

So as we continue to endure the ludicrous Trump/Russia investigation, let us contemplate the fact that a U.S. president took actions to intentionally provide support for violent Mexican drug cartels and Islamic terrorists and the sad reality that he will never pay any price for doing so. But thank God, quite literally, that Obama’s successor, President Donald Trump, is aggressively undoing the damage Obama has done.

University of Chicago Faculty Tell Obama to Move 'Socially Regressive' Library
Fox News ^ | 1-9-18
Posted on 1/10/2018, 8:06:29 AM by SJackson

More than 100 members of the University of Chicago faculty are asking the Obama Foundation to move the proposed library honoring the 44th president to a new location because the plan as currently constituted is “socially regressive.”

The Obama Presidential Center will not provide the “promised development or economic benefits” to surrounding neighborhoods, the professors write and could cost more than $100 million in state funds.

ADVERTISEMENT “We are concerned that these are not the best ways to use public funds to invest in the future of Chicago,” the letter reads.

The library will also take over large sections of two historic public parks, Jackson Park and Midway Plaisance, and force the closure of a major South Side thoroughfare, Cornell Avenue. The professors argue it’s a “traffic-jam in the making.”

Evidence mounts of Obama involvement in Dinesh D'Souza's selective prosecution
American Thinker ^ | 01/25/2018 | Monica Showalter
Posted on 1/25/2018, 12:16:16 PM by SeekAndFind

Would President Obama have been that petty to target a critic for draconian law enforcement over a movie? The way the Soviet KGB might have targeted a dissident?

Well, given the common thread of socialism in both, it shouldn't be a big surprise that he would.

It now comes to light that apparently, yes, he did. Dinesh D'Souza reports that he seems to have been in that unlucky category, targeted for any violation however minor, after making a couple of richly textured, artistically good and very popular critical movies about Obama. When a minor campaign finance violation was finally found after all that looking, D'Souza got the book thrown at him.

He now tweets that there is evidence for it:

My file—obtained by the House Oversight Committee—shows FBI red-flagged me as an Obama critic & allocated $100 K to investigate a $20 K case — Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) January 24, 2018

 

and that quite a few government resources went into ensuring he got arrested for something, anything. Here's what he thinks might have been done, given the taxpayer cash that went into pinning something, anything, on him :

 

If Obama ordered surveillance on @realDonaldTrump in 2016, I wonder if he ordered it on me in 2012, leading to my selective prosecution — Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) January 24, 2018


It's creepy to think there are lawmen with that little integrity out there to have not spoken out about such a blatant abuse of police power for political purposes. And it suggests that law enforcement agencies are shot through with leftists, which would mean no diversity of thought

The Photo That Never Saw The Light of Day: Obama With Farrakhan In 2005
By Esme Cribb | January 25, 2018 2:16 pm
 SHARE
 TWEET
 EMAIL
Askia Muhammad
A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”

ADVERTISING

“But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover,” Muhammad said.

Asked whether he thought the photo’s release would have affected Obama’s presidential campaign, Muhammad said, “I insist. It absolutely would have made a difference.”

Reached by TPM on Thursday, Muhammad said a “staff member” for the CBC contacted him “sort of in a panic” after he took the photo at a caucus meeting in 2005. TPM has published the photo above with Muhammad’s permission.

“I sort of understood what was going on,” Muhammad told TPM. “I promised and made arrangements to give the picture to Leonard Farrakhan,” the minister’s son-in-law and chief of staff.

Muhammad said he gave away “the disk” from his camera but “copied the photograph from that day onto a file” on his computer.

“Realizing that I had given it up, I mean, it was sort of like a promise to keep the photograph secret,” Muhammad said.

ADVERTISING

inRead invented by Teads
Muhammad said he did not release his copy of the photograph because he thought it would be perceived as a betrayal of that promise: “I was really, I guess, afraid of them.”

Muhammad said he thought the photograph would be “damaging politically” if it were released and was afraid that someone might “break into his apartment” looking for it, like “that Watergate crap.” He said he “felt a little bit more at ease” after Farrakhan in 2016 claimed that Obama visited his home in Chicago. Muhammad contacted Farrakhan in autumn 2017 with the “final manuscript” for a self-published book containing the photo.

“I sent him a copy of the manuscript suggesting that, showing him the picture, and saying to him, if he did not object, I was going to publish it,” Muhammad said. “He had no objection.”

Muhammad also told TPM that around the time he took the photo, he asked Obama about a perceived resemblance to Farrakhan.

“I asked the senator, ‘Has anyone ever told you that you resemble Minister Farrakhan?'” Muhammad said. “And he said what I thought was the perfect answer: ‘Well, he’s much better looking than I am.'”



TPM learned about the photograph and Muhammad’s upcoming book from a write-up in Richard Prince’s Journal-isms newsletter.

A spokesperson for Obama did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment. A spokesperson for the Congressional Black Caucus suggested that TPM contact the caucus’ former chair, Mel Watt, who now leads the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Watt did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment.

Muhammad is the news director at Washington, D.C. radio station WPFW and has served as the head of the Washington offices of the Nation of Islam’s official newspaper, The Final Call.

Farrakhan is a minister who leads the Nation of Islam and has made anti-Semitic remarks. During Obama’s presidential campaign, conservatives pushed multiple apparently racially motivated conspiracy theories about Obama’s religion and supposed ties to Islam.

During the 2008 presidential election, conservatives questioned the indirect ties between Farrakhan and Obama, who attended a church that gave Farrakhan an award. At a 2008 presidential debate in Cleveland, Obama said he had “been very clear” in his “denunciation” of Farrakhan’s remarks.

“I did not solicit his support,” Obama said, referring to Farrakhan’s praise for his candidacy. “I can’t say to somebody that he can’t say that he thinks I’m a good guy.”

SICK: Artist Who Painted Obama’s Official Portrait Known For Painting Blacks Beheading Whites

The artist who painted former President Obama’s portrait for the Portrait Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has an interesting past. While reviewing previous works by artist Kehinde Wiley, it was discovered that he has a great fondness for painting black women beheading white women. Both beheading pieces are titled “Judith beheading Holofernes”, referencing a story in the Book of Judith, which involves a beautiful woman who seduces an invading general before he is able to destroy their land, gets him drunk, and then decapitates him.

Twenty U.S. states sue federal government seeking end to Obamacare
MSN ^ | Feb. 26, 2018 | Reuters
Posted on 2/27/2018, 12:51:33 AM by Innovative

A coalition of 20 U.S. states sued the federal government on Monday over Obamacare, claiming the law was no longer constitutional after the repeal last year of its requirement that people have health insurance or pay a fine.

Led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, the lawsuit said that without the individual mandate, which was eliminated as part of the Republican tax law signed by President Donald Trump in December, Obamacare was unlawful.

"The U.S. Supreme Court already admitted that an individual mandate without a tax penalty is unconstitutional," Paxton said in a statement. "With no remaining legitimate basis for the law, it is time that Americans are finally free from the stranglehold of Obamacare, once and for all," he said.

Obama DOJ Forced FBI To Delete 500,000 Fugitives From Background Check Database
Daily Caller ^ | March 15, 2018 | Kerry Picket
Posted on 3/15/2018, 2:17:25 PM by Zakeet

The Justice Department under Barack Obama directed the FBI to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified Wednesday.

Fugitives from justice are barred from buying a firearm under federal law. But what is a fugitive from justice? That definition has been under debate by the FBI and the ATF.

According to The Washington Post, the FBI considered any person with an outstanding arrest warrant to be a fugitive. On the other hand, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives defined a fugitive as someone who has an outstanding arrest warrant and has crossed state lines.

The bridge was supposed to last for more than 100 years and withstand a Category 5 hurricane. Instead it came crashing down on people occupied cars within days of its construction.

Celebrated leading visionary bridge engineer Atorod Azizinamini, whose ABC (Accelerated Bridge Construction) technology was used to build the bridge that collapsed yesterday on Florida International University’s campus, was named an Obama era Department of Transportation ‘Champion of Change’ in 2015.

The event in which Azizinaminif was awarded ‘Champion of Change’ status was webcast live at whitehouse.gov/live, no longer online.

The Fragile Legacy of Barack Obama
Boston Review ^ | March 28, 2018 | by ELAINE KAMARCK
Posted on 3/28/2018, 3:11:30 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

It becomes clearer every day that Barack Obama, a historic president, presided over a somewhat less than historic presidency. With only one major legislative achievement (Obamacare)—and a fragile one at that—the legacy of Obama’s presidency mainly rests on its tremendous symbolic importance and the fate of a patchwork of executive actions.

How much of that was due to fate and how much was due to Obama’s own shortcomings as a politician is up for debate and is a question that emerges from Princeton historian Julian Zelizer’s new edited volume, The Presidency of Barack Obama.

With contributions from seventeen historians, the book bills itself as “a first historical assessment” of the Obama presidency. The overwhelming consensus, Zelizer writes, is that Obama “turned out to be a very effective policymaker but not a tremendously successful party builder.” This “defining paradox of Obama’s presidency” comes up again and again: the historians, by and large, approve of Obama’s policies (although some find them too timid) while they lament his politics.

The politics were pretty disastrous. As Zelizer summarizes, “During his presidency, even as he enjoyed reelection and strong approval ratings toward the end of this term, the Democratic Party suffered greatly. . . . Democrats lost more than one thousand seats in state legislatures, governors’ mansions, and Congress during his time in office.” Zelizer could have gone further. According to Ballotpedia, more Democratic state legislative seats were lost under Obama than under any president in modern history.

Yet even with such political fallout, the overall tone of the book is surprisingly wistful.

Obama didn't know healthcare could be so complicated
The Washington Examiner ^ | March 28, 2018
Posted on 3/28/2018, 3:22:24 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

"We know what works,” then-President Barack Obama said at the Global Center for Health Innovation in 2015. “We know what we have to do. We’ve just got to put aside the stale and outmoded debates. Reject failed policies. Embrace the policies that we know work. Embrace the promise of the future.”

What Obama claimed with such overweening confidence was that a few technical changes might fix most of the problems with healthcare delivery. But he and his allies pushing Obamacare were just plain wrong. His technocratic arguments that the 2010 law could bend the cost curve downward have been refuted again and again since its passage. Now, two new studies are out that explode critical assumptions people made in debate about medical bankruptcies and electronic medical records.

Last Friday marked the eighth anniversary of Obamacare’s signing. It’s a shame that it took eight years for two of its most important founding myths to fall by the wayside.

I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing... I said nothing can take away these blues

Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me, Barak, where did I go wrong
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me, guess what he told me?
He said, "boi, you better try to have fun no matter what you do," but he's a fool

'Cause nothing compares

All the flowers that you planted, in the back yard
All died when you went away

Obama: Parkland students 'are shaking us out of our complacency'
CNN ^ | April 19, 2018 | By Jennifer Hansler
Posted on 4/19/2018, 2:27:32 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

Former President Barack Obama has again lauded the students of Parkland, Florida, writing that they "are shaking us out of our complacency."

"America's response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern," the 44th president wrote in an entry published Thursday in Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list. "This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account."

"Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don't intimidate easily," Obama wrote of the students.

"The Parkland, Fla., students don't have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can't even vote yet," Obama noted. "But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom. The power to insist that America can be better."

Did You Read Obama’s Essay Commending Student Gun Control Enthusiasts? It Was CRINGE-INDUCING
Photo of John Lott
JOHN LOTT

3:24 PM 04/27/2018



For those who may have forgotten, Barack Obama reminded many last week what made him such a polarizing president.  In a Time magazine essay commending student gun control activists, Obama resorted to his typical name-calling and false statements.

The former President sympathized with students who “see the NRA and its allies—whether mealymouthed [sic] politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories—as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay.”  Trump has never used even remotely similar language to attack gun control proponents.

Obama complained, “The Parkland, Fla., students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do.”

In fact, it is the gun control groups who have the big dollars.  In 2016, according to OpenSecrets.org, the NRA spent almost $3.2 million on lobbying and another $1.1 million on donations to federal candidates running in that election cycle.  By contrast, over that same period, Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety spent $1.4 million lobbying and Bloomberg himself gave almost $24 million in direct donations to federal candidates.  Bloomberg also easily outspent the NRA on state and local elections.  He spent $28 million  just on two state gun control ballot initiatives.



–– ADVERTISEMENT ––



Contrary to Obama’s characterization of these students as disadvantaged, they easily spent over $9 million for their March 24 “March for Our Lives” event. They still have several million dollars left over. No airline has ever given free flights to NRA members, but Delta did just that for students attending the “March for Our Lives.” There were also all sorts of other in-kind donations from free hotel rooms, Lyft car rides, and food.

But Obama’s claims regarding crime are even more troubling.  He writes: “No developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns.”  He is wrong on a few fronts.

1. Often, gun control advocates such as Obama look only at countries that they define as “developed.” Sometimes they’ll pick out a small number such as 12 or 14. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is the club of 38 developed countries.  Obama ignores countries such as Chile and Estonia, which have homicide rates similar to ours.  And he definitely leaves out nations such as Russia and Brazil, which have homicide rates that are 3 to 5 times higher.

2. Countries with the most guns possessed by civilians have the lowest homicide rates. This holds true for developed countries.

3. After every single ban on handguns or on all guns generally, homicide rates have risen — usually by large amounts.

Obama thinks that the gun control debate will change as young people in high school “reach voting age.” But if surveys by USA Today, Gallup, and Reuters are correct, this may be only a pipe dream.

Although a large majority of Americans supported gun control after the Florida high school attack, a USA Today poll showed that just 47% of 13 to 17-year-olds thought that “tightening gun control laws and background checks will prevent more mass public shootings in the United States.” 54 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds felt the same way.  Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport noted: “Young people statistically aren’t that much different than anybody else.”  And Reuters found that young people between 18 and 29 were by far the least supportive of gun control measures such as banning “military-style assault weapons” or semi-automatic guns.

Obama claims that “a Republican Congress remains unmoved” by the tragedy in Florida and other mass public shootings.  He is unwilling to admit that everyone wants to stop these attacks, and may simply disagree on how to do that.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that 59 percent of people with school-age children support a policy that Obama strongly opposes: arming teachers.  Would Obama really want to argue that these parents are just “shills” for the gun industry?  That they don’t really care about the safety of their children.

Eighteen states already allow teachers to carry, and have done so without any real problems.  No school with teacher-carry has ever had a mass school shooting.

Enough of accusing Republicans of not caring about children.  If gun control activists such as Obama really want to move beyond an acrimonious political debate that leads nowhere, they have to accept that everyone has the same goal — to make people safe.  You can disagree with the gun controllers without being paid off by gun makers.

John Lott is the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center and the author most recently of “The War on Guns.”

Trump Ends Iran Deal; Obama Legacy Almost Gone
DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
Posted on 5/9/2018, 8:01:43 AM by EyesOfTX

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – San Fran Nan provided GOP candidates with they only ad the need to run in their campaigns this fall, promising to raise taxes if the Democrats regain a majority in the House of Representatives and she becomes Speaker once again. Seriously, if Republicans didn’t have Nancy Pelosi, they’d have to invent her. She is their best weapon in this year’s mid-term elections, if they’re smart enough to use her.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part II – All that wailing and gnashing of teeth you heard around 7:00 Central Time Tuesday night was emanating from the halls of CNN and MSNBC, where all the mouth-breathers who staff those fake news outlets were crying in their very cheap beers over the fact that Don Blankenship was crashing and burning out in West Virginia. All the fake news people were praying the extremely goofy Blankenship would prevail in his effort to defeat several other candidates to become the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin for his senate seat. Blankenship would have been turned by the media into a replay of the Roy Moore fiasco in Alabama last year, so the Republicans did well to give him just 20% of the overall vote. Good riddance.

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part III – Democrats and their agents in the fake news media all hate President Donald Trump with a passion, but Israelis love him. The City of Jerusalem just chose to name a public square in the President’s honor for keeping his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy to that city from its current location in Tel Aviv. Keeping your promises might not win you a totally un-deserved Nobel Peace Prize like the one Barack Obama received in 2009, but it will win you real gratitude from real people.

That un-American Obama “legacy” just keeps disappearing. – Speaking of Donald Trump keeping his promises, the President announced on Tuesday that he is ending U.S. participation in the Iran deal to which Barack Obama unilaterally chose to commit this country. In response, the Iranian government responded very predictably, issuing war threats, burning an American flag on the floor if its fake parliament, and staging protests in which the oppressed protesters shouted…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?…”DEATH TO AMERICA!!!!”

Seriously, can’t the Mullahs teach these people any new chants? This one has become as tiresome as another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. Do something else, already.

So, one more nail in the coffin of Barack Obama’s incredible shrinking legacy, which as of today is pretty much limited to a few random straggling Obamacare provisions, a handful of regulations that Trump hasn’t gotten around to rescinding yet, and of course all the illegal activity committed by the Obama Justice Department, the FBI and high Obama officials against the Trump Campaign in their tireless efforts to rig the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess.

Otherwise, that legacy is as gone as Eric Schneiderman’s reputation, as gone as Jake Tapper’s credibility, as gone as Megyn Kelly’s ratings, as gone as Kathy Griffin’s career, and what a wonderful thing that is for the entire country. All because we elected a President who has worked hard to keep the promises he made during his election campaign. This really isn’t complicated, America. Let’s keep doing it.

Throughout the day on Tuesday, ex-Obama officials took to their twitter accounts to defend the Iran deal, to no avail. Most prominent among those was the execrable Ben Rhodes, who became famous for going around giving interviews after the deal was implemented in which he bragged about how easy it was to lie to the fake news media about the deal and convince all the young, naive reporters that it was actually a great deal for America. Given that, it’s really amazing CNN hasn’t given Rhodes a gigantic contract to become an on-air contributor.

But my favorite came from John Brennan, the former CIA director and guy who has a history of voting for communists:

@JohnBrennan Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security.

Within minutes after Brennan issued that tweet, North Korea confirmed that it will be releasing three U.S. prisoners while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting that country this week.

All of which just proves once again that one of the very best things about the disappearing legacy of Barack Obama is that we no longer have a simpleton like John O. Brennan running the CIA.

Just another day in the Obama legacy is almost gone America.

That is all.

End of Iran Deal Underscores a Weakness of Obama's 'Pen and Phone' Presidency
Reason ^ | May 9, 2018 | by Nick Gillespie

If your "signature achievements" are done by executive power alone, they might as well be written in pencil.

Say what you will about Donald Trump pulling the United States out of the Iran deal. Personally, I wish the United States had stayed in. But this sort of zig-zag is exactly what happens when you end up governing with your pen and your phone, as Barack Obama did.

Faced with a recalcitrant, obstructionist Republican Congress that he helped bring to power two years into his presidency, Obama increasingly gave up on getting congressional approval for anything: military actions, immigration policy, trade policy, net neutrality, environmental regulations. Instead, as Damon Root wrote a few years back, Obama did exactly what he once had criticized his predecessor for and went full Andrew Jackson.

Well, you live by the pen and you die by the pen, and so DACA, the Paris Accords, and the Iran deal (routinely described as "one of President Barack Obama's signature foreign policy achievements") are down the tubes.   ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  :D  :D  :D :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :-*  :-*  :-*  :-*

If Obama had tried to negotiate the Iran deal as a treaty, rather than an agreement, he would have needed the Senate to sign off on it. Same thing with U.S. involvement in the Paris Accords and a bunch of other "signature achievements."

I live in Las Vegas. I'm the number one conservative talk show host in this town. I know every show on the Vegas Strip. Don't look now, but Donald Trump is the second coming of David Copperfield. And Obama is the rabbit. Trump has made Obama disappear. It's magic!

I told you so. Both before the election and after, I predicted Donald Trump would make Obama disappear. I predicted he'd erase Obama’s entire legacy. He’d make our long national Obama nightmare disappear. He’d make the misery of the Obamageddon economy go away. He’d erase Obama like he was never there.

In one bold stroke of his pen on Tuesday, Trump did just that. President Trump nuked the Iran deal. He shocked the world. But not me.

I think the reality is, depending on your personal position on a number of issues, left leaning, right leaning etc, you view Obama's presidency through those lenses. It also explains why today, there are people who see Trump as doing a good job and should be considered one of the best presidents of all time, and others that see Trump as a lying lunatic that is dangerous for this country. Some see a balance.

So if you are "explaining" to one of those who don't share your particular eye glasses you are probably wasting your time. It would be no different than someone explaining to you that Obama was a good president. You would trot out your evidence, they would trot out theirs and you both would be where you started 2 hrs later  

I think it's normal for you to believe your view is the right one, otherwise, why would you hold it? But remember that they feel the same way, just with a different conclusion. Doesn't make you right, nor them wrong, just different perspectives

Trump administration to provide records on Obama-era gun-smuggling probe
Reuters ^ | May 16, 2018 | Sarah N. Lynch
Posted on 5/17/2018, 9:47:04 AM by COUNTrecount

The U.S. Justice Department has agreed to provide congressional investigators confidential records on a failed gun-trafficking operation during the Obama administration known as "Fast and Furious" that long has been criticized by Republican lawmakers.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department would hand over documents to the Republican-led House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that had been withheld by Democratic former President Barack Obama's administration.

The agreement reached by Republican President Donald Trump's administration will effectively end a six-year long legal battle in which the committee had gone to federal court to try to enforce a subpoena it had issued to obtain the records.

Congressional Republicans have been pressing the Justice Department for years about the operation. Named after a movie about car racing, the operation sought to curb gun-trafficking criminals who were selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

In June 2012, the Republican-led House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder, an Obama appointee, in contempt for failing to turn over documents about the operation. The committee sued Holder for access to the documents in August 2012. Obama asserted executive privilege to block the disclosure of the documents.

Spinning a Crossfire Hurricane: The Times on the FBI’s Trump Investigation
https://www.nationalreview.com ^ | May 17, 2018 | Andrew McCarthy
Posted on 5/17/2018, 12:58:39 PM by

The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it. Fittingly, that is exactly what the New York Times has done in Wednesday’s blockbuster report on the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

The quick take on the 4,100-word opus is that the Gray Lady “buried the lede.” Fair enough: You have to dig pretty deep to find that the FBI ran “at least one government informant” against the Trump campaign — and to note that the Times learned this because “current and former officials” leaked to reporters the same classified information about which, just days ago, the Justice Department shrieked “Extortion!” when Congress asked about it.

But that’s not even the most important of the buried ledes. What the Times story makes explicit, with studious understatement, is that the Obama administration used its counterintelligence powers to investigate the opposition party’s presidential campaign.

That is, there was no criminal predicate to justify an investigation of any Trump-campaign official. So, the FBI did not open a criminal investigation. Instead, the bureau opened a counterintelligence investigation and hoped that evidence of crimes committed by Trump officials would emerge. But it is an abuse of power to use counterintelligence powers, including spying and electronic surveillance, to conduct what is actually a criminal investigation.

The Times barely mentions the word counterintelligence in its saga. That’s not an accident. The paper is crafting the media-Democrat narrative. Here is how things are to be spun: The FBI was very public about the Clinton-emails investigation, even making disclosures about it on the eve of the election. Yet it kept the Trump-Russia investigation tightly under wraps, despite intelligence showing that the Kremlin was sabotaging the election for Trump’s benefit. This effectively destroyed Clinton’s candidacy and handed the presidency to Trump.

It’s also bunk. Just because the two FBI cases are both referred to as “investigations” does not make them the same kind of thing.

The Clinton case was a criminal investigation that was predicated on a mountain of incriminating evidence. Mrs. Clinton does have one legitimate beef against the FBI: Then-director James Comey went public with some (but by no means all) of the proof against her. In is not proper for law-enforcement officials to publicize evidence from a criminal investigation unless formal charges are brought.

In the scheme of things, though, this was a minor infraction. The scandal here is that Mrs. Clinton was not charged. She likes to blame Comey for her defeat; but she had a chance to win only because the Obama Justice Department and the FBI tanked the case against her — in exactly the manner President Obama encouraged them to do in public commentary.

By contast, the Trump case is a counterintelligence investigation. Unlike criminal cases, counterintelligence matters are classified. If agents had made public disclosures about them, they would have been committing crimes and violating solemn agreements with foreign intelligence services — agreements without which those services would not share information that U.S. national-security officials need in order to protect our country.

The scandal is that the FBI, lacking the incriminating evidence needed to justify opening a criminal investigation of the Trump campaign, decided to open a counterintelligence investigation. With the blessing of the Obama White House, they took the powers that enable our government to spy on foreign adversaries and used them to spy on Americans — Americans who just happened to be their political adversaries.

The Times averts its eyes from this point — although if a Republican administration tried this sort of thing on a Democratic candidate, it would be the only point.

Like the Justice Department and the FBI, the paper is banking on Russia to muddy the waters. Obviously, Russia was trying to meddle in the election, mainly through cyber-espionage — hacking. There would, then, have been nothing inappropriate about the FBI’s opening up a counterintelligence investigation against Russia. Indeed, it would have been irresponsible not to do so. That’s what counterintelligence powers are for.

But opening up a counterintelligence investigation against Russia is not the same thing as opening up a counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign.

The media-Democrat complex has tried from the start to conflate these two things. That explains the desperation to convince the public that Putin wanted Trump to win. It explains the stress on contacts, no matter how slight, between Trump campaign figures and Russians. They are trying to fill a gaping void they hope you don’t notice: Even if Putin did want Trump to win, and even if Trump-campaign advisers did have contacts with Kremlin-tied figures, there is no evidence of participation by the Trump campaign in Russia’s espionage.

That is the proof that would have been needed to justify investigating Americans. Under federal law, to establish that an American is acting as an agent of a foreign power, the government must show that the American is purposefully engaging in clandestine activities on behalf of a foreign power, and that it is probable that these activities violate federal criminal law. (See FISA, Title 50, U.S. Code, Section 1801(b)(2), further explained in the last six paragraphs of my Dec. 17 column.)

But of course, if the FBI had had that kind of evidence, they would not have had to open a counterintelligence investigation. They would not have had to use the Clinton campaign’s opposition research — the Steele dossier — to get FISA-court warrants. They would instead have opened a criminal investigation, just as they did on Clinton when there was evidence that she committed felonies.

To the contrary, the bureau opened a counterintelligence investigation in the absence of any (a) incriminating evidence, or (b) evidence implicating the Trump campaign in Russian espionage. At the height of the 2016 presidential race, the FBI collaborated with the CIA to probe an American political campaign. They used foreign-intelligence surveillance and informants.

That’s your crossfire hurricane.

rump tweet: "Obama FBI spying on my campaign could be 'bigger than Watergate'"
thehill.com ^ | 5/17/18 | JULIA MANCHESTER
Posted on 5/17/2018, 7:02:13 PM by Liz

President Trump touted a report saying the FBI under ex-Pres Obama spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential race, saying that the revelation could be "bigger than Watergate."

“Wow, word coming out that the Obama FBI 'SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN IMBEDDED INFORMANT,'" the president tweeted in reference to a National Review report published last week.“Andrew McCarthy says, 'There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.' If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”

The report alleges that Obama-led agencies used their surveillance powers to monitor the Trump campaign.

This is not the first time that the Obama administration has been accused of spying on the Trump campaign. Last year, Trump accused the former president of wiretapping Trump Tower shortly before the 2016 election. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped,' in Trump Tower just before victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" the president tweeted in March 2017.

"The president used the word 'wiretap' in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities during that," former WH press secretary, Sean Spicer, said. "There is no question that during the Obama administration, there were actions about surveillance, and other activities, that occurred in the 2016 elections."

"One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience," the former president said in a statement. "That's why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world."

Obama previously appeared on Netflix's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman."

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement the Obamas "are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better." A New York Times report in March said Obama's projects are not intended to address President Donald Trump or conservatives. Instead, it would focus on inspirational content.

Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday seemingly joked to an audience at a Las Vegas tech conference that his eight-year presidency was scandal-free.

"I didn't have scandals, which seems like it shouldn't be something you brag about," Obama said, according to Newsweek.

The 44th president was reportedly referencing the scandal-plagued Trump administration, saying that "if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It's a big deal."

Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollars

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access — albeit briefly — to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.

An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal’s opponents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity.


The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that under President Barack Obama, the Treasury Department issued a license in February 2016, never previously disclosed, that would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at a bank in Oman from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them first into U.S. dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. financial system.

The effort was unsuccessful because American banks — themselves afraid of running afoul of U.S. sanctions — declined to participate. The Obama administration approached two U.S. banks to facilitate the conversion, the report said, but both refused, citing the reputational risk of doing business with or for Iran.

“The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the subcommittee’s chairman.

Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement. Under that deal, the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program. Last month, President Donald Trump declared the U.S. was pulling out of what he described as a “disastrous deal.”

The license issued to Bank Muscat stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. financial system.


Shortly after the nuclear deal was sealed in July 2015, then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testified that even with the sanctions relief, Iran “will continue to be denied access to the world’s largest financial and commercial market.” A month later, one of Lew’s top deputies, Adam Szubin, testified that despite the nuclear deal “Iran will be denied access to the world’s most important market and unable to deal in the world’s most important currency.”

Yet almost immediately after the sanctions relief took effect in January 2016, Iran began to complain that it wasn’t reaping the benefits it had envisioned. Iran argued that other sanctions — such as those linked to human rights, terrorism and missile development — were scaring off potential investors and banks who feared any business with Iran would lead to punishment. The global financial system is heavily intertwined with U.S. banks, making it nearly impossible to conduct many international transactions without touching New York in one way or another.

Former Obama administration officials declined to comment for the record.

However, they said the decision to grant the license had been made in line with the spirt of the deal, which included allowing Iran to regain access to foreign reserves that had been off-limits because of the sanctions. They said public comments made by the Obama administration at the time were intended to dispel incorrect reports about nonexistent proposals that would have gone much farther by letting Iran actually buy or sell things in dollars.

The former officials spoke on condition of anonymity because many are still involved in national security issues.

As the Obama administration pondered how to address Iran’s complaints in 2016, reports in The Associated Press and other media outlets revealed that the U.S. was considering additional sanctions relief, including issuing licenses that would allow Iran limited transactions in dollars. Democratic and Republican lawmakers argued against it throughout the late winter, spring and summer of 2016. They warned that unless Tehran was willing to give up more, the U.S. shouldn’t give Iran anything more than it already had.

At the time, the Obama administration downplayed those concerns while speaking in general terms about the need for the U.S. to live up to its part of the deal. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top aides fanned out across Europe, Asia and the Middle East trying to convince banks and businesses they could do business with Iran without violating sanctions and facing steep fines.

“Since Iran has kept its end of the deal, it is our responsibility to uphold ours, in both letter and spirit,” Lew said at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in March 2016, without offering details.

That same week, the AP reported that the Treasury had prepared a draft of a license that would have given Iran much broader permission to convert its assets from foreign currencies into easier-to-spend currencies like euros, yen or rupees, by first exchanging them for dollars at offshore financial institutions.

The draft involved a general license, a blanket go-ahead that allows all transactions of a certain type, rather than a specific license like the one given to Oman’s Bank Muscat, which only covers specific transactions and institutions. The proposal would have allowed dollars to be used in currency exchanges provided that no Iranian banks, no Iranian rials and no sanctioned Iranian individuals or businesses were involved, and that the transaction did not begin or end in U.S. dollars.

Obama administration officials at the time assured concerned lawmakers that a general license wouldn’t be coming. But the report from the Republican members of the Senate panel showed that a draft of the license was indeed prepared, though it was never published.

And when questioned by lawmakers about the possibility of granting Iran any kind of access to the U.S. financial system, Obama-era officials never volunteered that the specific license for Bank Muscat in Oman had been issued two months earlier.

According to the report, Iran is believed to have found other ways to access its money, possibly by exchanging it in smaller quantities through another currency.

The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a currency that’s notoriously hard to convert. The U.S. dollar is the world’s dominant currency, so allowing it to be used as a conversion instrument for Iranian assets was the easiest and most efficient way to speed up Iran’s access to its own funds.

For example: If the Iranians want to sell oil to India, they would likely want to be paid in euros instead of rupees, so they could more easily use the proceeds to purchase European goods. That process commonly starts with the rupees being converted into dollars, just for a moment, before being converted once again into euros.

U.S. sanctions block Iran from exchanging the money on its own. And Asian and European banks are wary because U.S. regulators have levied billions of dollars in fines in recent years and threatened transgressors with a cutoff from the far more lucrative American market.

Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollars

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access — albeit briefly — to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.

An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal’s opponents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity.


The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that under President Barack Obama, the Treasury Department issued a license in February 2016, never previously disclosed, that would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at a bank in Oman from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them first into U.S. dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. financial system.

The effort was unsuccessful because American banks — themselves afraid of running afoul of U.S. sanctions — declined to participate. The Obama administration approached two U.S. banks to facilitate the conversion, the report said, but both refused, citing the reputational risk of doing business with or for Iran.

“The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the subcommittee’s chairman.

Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement. Under that deal, the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program. Last month, President Donald Trump declared the U.S. was pulling out of what he described as a “disastrous deal.”

The license issued to Bank Muscat stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. financial system.


Shortly after the nuclear deal was sealed in July 2015, then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testified that even with the sanctions relief, Iran “will continue to be denied access to the world’s largest financial and commercial market.” A month later, one of Lew’s top deputies, Adam Szubin, testified that despite the nuclear deal “Iran will be denied access to the world’s most important market and unable to deal in the world’s most important currency.”

Yet almost immediately after the sanctions relief took effect in January 2016, Iran began to complain that it wasn’t reaping the benefits it had envisioned. Iran argued that other sanctions — such as those linked to human rights, terrorism and missile development — were scaring off potential investors and banks who feared any business with Iran would lead to punishment. The global financial system is heavily intertwined with U.S. banks, making it nearly impossible to conduct many international transactions without touching New York in one way or another.

Former Obama administration officials declined to comment for the record.

However, they said the decision to grant the license had been made in line with the spirt of the deal, which included allowing Iran to regain access to foreign reserves that had been off-limits because of the sanctions. They said public comments made by the Obama administration at the time were intended to dispel incorrect reports about nonexistent proposals that would have gone much farther by letting Iran actually buy or sell things in dollars.

The former officials spoke on condition of anonymity because many are still involved in national security issues.

As the Obama administration pondered how to address Iran’s complaints in 2016, reports in The Associated Press and other media outlets revealed that the U.S. was considering additional sanctions relief, including issuing licenses that would allow Iran limited transactions in dollars. Democratic and Republican lawmakers argued against it throughout the late winter, spring and summer of 2016. They warned that unless Tehran was willing to give up more, the U.S. shouldn’t give Iran anything more than it already had.

At the time, the Obama administration downplayed those concerns while speaking in general terms about the need for the U.S. to live up to its part of the deal. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top aides fanned out across Europe, Asia and the Middle East trying to convince banks and businesses they could do business with Iran without violating sanctions and facing steep fines.

“Since Iran has kept its end of the deal, it is our responsibility to uphold ours, in both letter and spirit,” Lew said at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in March 2016, without offering details.

That same week, the AP reported that the Treasury had prepared a draft of a license that would have given Iran much broader permission to convert its assets from foreign currencies into easier-to-spend currencies like euros, yen or rupees, by first exchanging them for dollars at offshore financial institutions.

The draft involved a general license, a blanket go-ahead that allows all transactions of a certain type, rather than a specific license like the one given to Oman’s Bank Muscat, which only covers specific transactions and institutions. The proposal would have allowed dollars to be used in currency exchanges provided that no Iranian banks, no Iranian rials and no sanctioned Iranian individuals or businesses were involved, and that the transaction did not begin or end in U.S. dollars.

Obama administration officials at the time assured concerned lawmakers that a general license wouldn’t be coming. But the report from the Republican members of the Senate panel showed that a draft of the license was indeed prepared, though it was never published.

And when questioned by lawmakers about the possibility of granting Iran any kind of access to the U.S. financial system, Obama-era officials never volunteered that the specific license for Bank Muscat in Oman had been issued two months earlier.

According to the report, Iran is believed to have found other ways to access its money, possibly by exchanging it in smaller quantities through another currency.

The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a currency that’s notoriously hard to convert. The U.S. dollar is the world’s dominant currency, so allowing it to be used as a conversion instrument for Iranian assets was the easiest and most efficient way to speed up Iran’s access to its own funds.

For example: If the Iranians want to sell oil to India, they would likely want to be paid in euros instead of rupees, so they could more easily use the proceeds to purchase European goods. That process commonly starts with the rupees being converted into dollars, just for a moment, before being converted once again into euros.

U.S. sanctions block Iran from exchanging the money on its own. And Asian and European banks are wary because U.S. regulators have levied billions of dollars in fines in recent years and threatened transgressors with a cutoff from the far more lucrative American market.

Crisis at the National Archives (Hussein records are missing)
Real Clear Politics ^ | 6/10/18 | Thomas Lipscomb
Posted on 6/10/2018, 10:07:14 AM by Libloather

In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing.

**SNIP**

To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying "the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems" and empowering "the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal.” Additionally, it gives the Archivist of the United States the final authority in determining just what is a government record.

And yet the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges. So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders. The IRS suffered record “losses” as well. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy called it “an unauthorized private communications system for official business for the patent purpose of defeating federal record-keeping and disclosure laws.”

Inside Obama’s secret meetings with 2020 contenders

Still the reluctant leader of the Democratic Party, Obama has been providing counsel to Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and other presidential hopefuls.

By EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE 06/11/2018 05:02 AM EDT

Former President Barack Obama so far has avoided direct conflict with President Donald Trump, but that doesn't mean he's not looking toward 2020.


Barack Obama has in recent months met with at least nine prospective 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Deval Patrick, pulling them in for one-on-one sessions at his Washington office.

All the meetings were arranged quietly, without even some close advisers to the people involved being told of the conversations, in part because of how much Obama bristles at his private meetings becoming public knowledge. All have been confirmed to POLITICO by multiple people who have been briefed on the secretive sit-downs.

The meetings have been at Obama’s personal office on the third floor of the World Wildlife Fund building in D.C.’s West End neighborhood, and they show how a stream of ambitious, searching politicians are looking for guidance and support from the man who has remained the reluctant leader of the Democratic Party, eager to be involved, though not directly. He's not making any promises of support, though, and is not expected to endorse in the 2020 race until after a nominee has emerged.

Obama so far has avoided direct conflict with President Donald Trump — save for a few public statements criticizing his moves attempting to dismantle the Iran nuclear deal, Obamacare and the protection program for Dreamers, though without naming Trump.

But Obama is concerned about how his own party is responding, and how it can be best positioned to win in the midterms and in the next presidential cycle to beat back the president and his politics.



He doesn’t see himself as the person to come up with the plan, people who know about the meetings say, but he is eager to be a sounding board and counselor to the Democrats he sees as playing a role in shaping the party’s future.

Obama’s office declined comment on all the meetings.

Sanders, who has more respect for Obama and the work of his administration than is often portrayed, requested his meeting with the former president, held in mid-March, people told about that conversation confirmed.

They talked about the future of the party and their different roles in it. They talked about what the party should be focused on, and what would be distractions. Obama discussed his views on the differences between idealism and practicality, and Sanders responded with his.

They did not get into a specific discussion about whether Sanders would run again for president in 2020.

The meeting with Warren was Obama’s second since leaving office, according to people who know about both encounters. The first was in the spring of 2017 after Warren said she was “troubled” by the $400,000 Obama was getting to speak at a Wall Street investment firm, describing it as an example of the influence of money that she called “a snake that slithers through Washington.”

Obama responded by inviting her in. They heard each other out. She did not apologize, but she acknowledged what she’d kicked up with the comment, and they talked about keeping that conversation in mind for the future.

The second meeting, warmer from start to finish, came just this past April and ran well into 90 minutes. They talked about Richard Cordray, the former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau who is now the Democratic nominee for governor in Ohio. They reminisced. They talked about Trump.

Obama and Biden remain personally close and speak by phone, and the former vice president also came by for an in-person meeting in January. He’s waiting until after the midterms to make a decision on 2020, though many people see him as leaning toward it. The 2020 race and what Biden’s going to do haven’t come up in those discussions, though, with Obama waiting on his friend to make a decision, according to people who have been briefed on their conversations.

Patrick, the former Massachusetts governor and personal friend whom Obama and many in his inner circle are eager to see get into the 2020 race — and who has recently been making rumblings that he very well might — has been in to the office too. Patrick, though, is on the board of the Obama Foundation, giving them at least an outward reason for the meeting beyond politics.

“The president was generous with his time and advice, and he was excited to talk about the future,” said one person familiar with one of the meetings.

Many of the conversations have circled around Obama holding forth about how much Democrats should be heading into the midterms talking about the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election versus focusing on kitchen table issues. Don’t chase the shiny objects, he tells them. Don’t hyperventilate over the flash of any tweet. Think about what’s going to stick in the long term.

This has all happened against the backdrop of Obama’s continuing work on his memoir, which he fell behind schedule on writing and for which he does not yet have a release date. He’s also been doing major fundraising for his foundation, and building out a stronger sense of what sort of programs it should have to fulfill his vision of it as a social organizing engine for creating more good in the world.

And he’s continued to make those very well-paid speeches.

On the road and over the phone, major donors and other panicked Democrats have been pushing him to take on a bigger public role in the fight against Trump. He has demurred on that — for now — keeping to his plan of waiting until the fall to begin making endorsements and campaign appearances.

In private, it’s a different story. He’s urged donors to contribute to the Democratic National Committee. And he’s been eager to bring in many of the people he sees as key players in grappling with the crisis the party is in, as well as leading it to whatever comes next. His staff is building out his plan to start endorsing and hitting the campaign trail in the fall, with an emphasis on down-ballot races.

Meanwhile, people who have been told about other meetings confirmed that they’re going on with some of the lesser known potential 2020 candidates, too. Mitch Landrieu, the former New Orleans mayor being urged to run for president — including by some Obama alumni — sat with the former president in the fall. Jason Kander, the failed 2016 Missouri Senate candidate who’s looking at making an against-all-odds White House run, stopped by in January. And Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who’s thinking of a run of his own, was in to see Obama at the end of last year.

Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles and one of the early supporters of Obama’s 2008 campaign, hasn’t been to the Washington office, but he got his private meeting when Obama was in town to attend a dinner in May for the American Constitution Center, say several people who were told of that meeting.


According to multiple people familiar with them, the meetings run long, often over an hour. Obama tends to give advice, guidance, talk about the future of the party, and everyone’s places in it. The conversations can be searching, get philosophical, then quickly veer back to brass tacks. He’ll give his thoughts on campaigns. He’ll offer to help make sure donors and party bigwigs are returning calls.

The people in them walk out appreciative but tight-lipped. They worry that if word gets out, Obama might renege on his offers to help and not invite them again if they do.

Among the other speculated 2020 candidates who haven’t been through: Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris and Terry McAuliffe. Cory Booker was in to see Obama last year, shortly after he returned from his extended post-White House vacation, but hasn’t been back since.

But run-ins like that one are among the ways that the meetings get started. Obama sees a future-minded Democrat he’s interested in getting to know more and tells them vaguely that they should come by to see him. And they are eager to.

It’s not just prospective presidential candidates, according to people aware of other meetings. Harry Reid, the former Senate Democratic leader, stopped by while on a trip through town at the end of March.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has urged Obama over the phone to see massive fundraising as the best way he can help Senate Democrats in 2018. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has also been on the phone with Obama, urging him toward fundraising — and he’s now scheduled to do a fundraising event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on June 29 in the Bay Area. Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez also continues to check in.

Other senators have been by as well, including Colorado’s Michael Bennet, Delaware’s Chris Coons and Alabama’s Doug Jones, according to people familiar with those meetings.

“As a former senator and president, it was a privilege to meet with him and hear his perspectives and advice on leadership, separate and apart from any politics,” said Jones, who pointed out that he also met with Trump and is hoping to meet with George W. Bush.


Obama’s also met with Eric Holder to talk about the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, but the chatter that the former attorney general has kept going about how he might actually run for president himself hasn’t been at the forefront of those conversations, said people told about those conversations.

“I think it’s great that he’s meeting with people who are interested in the future of the country and the party,” said a person familiar with another one of the meetings.

Man Who Destroyed The Democratic Party Gives Advice To Democratic Presidential Hopefuls
Red State ^ | 11 June 2018 | Anon
Posted on 6/11/2018, 11:31:15 AM by Rummyfan

Barack Obama, former president and Republican sleeper agent who successfully destroyed the Democratic Party in eight years, is back in the news after hosting a series of private, one-on-one meetings with Democratic hopefuls who may end up running in 2020.

The former president has been meeting with a lot of names that have been tossed around in national media as potential opposition to Donald Trump, who won the presidency in 2016 after Obama had completely destroyed the Democratic Party’s bench to the point where an actual, avowed socialist and a politician whose political expiration date passed in 2005 were the only viable options.

Via CNN:

The meetings come as the former president charts his future political life and evaluates how he can best help a Democratic Party that is working to figure out how to run with President Donald Trump in the White House. Some Democrats accused Obama of neglecting the Democratic Party apparatus while in the White House, but people close to the former president argue he is fully invested in the future of the party and the bench of talent looking to run on 2020.

To date, according to the Democrat, Obama has met with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren; former Vice President Joe Biden; former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick; New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker; former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu; Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Peter Buttigieg; former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander; and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

While many in the GOP are concerned about their chances in the impending 2018 elections, there has actually been little worry over 2020 due to the fact that the Democratic Party has pushed so far to the Left that Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein of all people are now considered moderate.

Obama’s legacy of destruction is near-legendary in some circles. When he left office, the Republican Party controlled more governor’s mansions and state legislatures than ever before. To say that he was to the Democratic Party what Thanos was to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a huge understatement of Obama’s power, and he didn’t even need a fancy glove.

As a clearly partisan commentator, I encourage Democrats to continue using Barack Obama as an electoral resource. His knowledge of how to continue to be entirely disdainful of non-coastal Americans, Christians, and the working class will surely be a great addition to the Democrats’ already impressive arsenal of policy pushes, including fully socialized healthcare, the $15/hour minimum wage, and forcing Christians to violate their beliefs.

Posted on 6/13/2018, 8:17:06 AM by SJackson

But Leftist Privilege will prevent him from ever being held accountable.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that “the Obama administration skirted key U.S. sanctions to grant Iran access to billions in hard currency despite public assurances the administration was engaged in no such action, according to a new congressional investigation.”

And it gets even worse: “The investigation, published Wednesday by the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, further discloses secret efforts by top Obama administration officials to assure European countries they would receive a pass from U.S. sanctions if they engaged in business with Iran.”

This revelation comes after the news that came to light in February, that, according to Bill Gertz in the Washington Times, “the U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred.”

There is a law that applies to this situation. U.S. Code 2381 says: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

In a sane political environment, Barack Obama would be tried for treason.

Barack Hussein Obama has planted seeds that will be bearing bitter fruit for years, and probably decades, to come. He is, without any doubt, the worst President in American history. Fillmore, Pierce, Buchanan? Yes, the doughface Presidents made the Civil War inevitable, but worse came later. Grant? Blind to corruption and out of his depth, but there have been worse than he as well. Wilson? That black-hearted Presbyterian bigot arguably gave the world Hitler and World War II, so he is definitely in the Final Four. Harding? Nah: his tax cuts and return to “normalcy” got the American economy, and the Twenties, roaring. FDR and LBJ gave us the modern welfare state and dependent classes automatically voting Democrat; the full bill on the damage they did hasn’t yet been presented. Nixon? A crook and an economic Leftist, who betrayed Taiwan for the People’s Republic; his record certainly isn’t good. Carter? Nothing good can be said about his four years of sanctimony and incompetence.

But there is one thing Barack Obama has on all competitors: treason.

He showered hundreds of billions of dollars on the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are those who say, “It was their money. It belonged to the Iranian government but was frozen and not paid since 1979.” Indeed, and there was a reason for that: not even Jimmy Carter, who made the Islamic Republic of Iran possible, thought that money, which had been paid by the Shah’s government in a canceled arms deal, belonged to the mullahs who overthrew the Shah. Likewise Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush all thought that the Islamic Republic was not due money that was owed to the Shah.

Only Barack Obama did.

The definition of treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. The leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran order their people to chant “Death to America” in mosques every Friday, and repeatedly vow that they will ultimately destroy the United States of America and the state of Israel. How was giving them billions and helping them skirt sanctions applied by the U.S. government not treason?

Other Presidents have been incompetent, corrupt, dishonest, but which has committed treason on a scale to rival the treason of Barack Obama?

The Iranians also operate a global network of jihad terror organizations, one of which, Hizballah, is quite active in Mexico now, with the obvious ultimate intention of crossing the border and committing jihad massacres of Americans. Obama has given a tremendous boost to these initiatives, as well as to Iran’s nuclear program, with his nuclear deal that has given the Iranians hundreds of billions of dollars and essentially a green light to manufacture nuclear weapons, in exchange for absolutely nothing.

There is no telling when the worst consequences of Obama’s aid and comfort to the Islamic Republic of Iran will be felt. But they likely will be felt in one way or another. Even as President Trump moves swiftly to restore sanctions and put Iran on notice that its nuclear activity and global adventurism will not be tolerated, those billions cannot be recovered, and the Iranians have already spent a great deal for their jihad cause.

However this catastrophe plays out, there is one man who will suffer no consequences whatsoever: Barack Obama. That’s Leftist Privilege. It’s good to be a powerful Leftist in Washington nowadays. Laws? Pah! Laws are for conservatives.

Press Ignores Obama's Lie About Emails to Hillary's Private Server
News Busters ^ | June 15, 2018 4:49 PM EDT | Tom Blumer
Posted on 6/15/2018, 8:11:17 PM by E. Pluribus Unum

Thursday's Inspector General's report reviewing FBI and Department of Justice actions before the 2016 election effectively concluded that former President Barack Obama lied to the American people and committed illegal acts in emailing then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private-server email addresses.

The IG also found that former FBI Director James Comey scrubbed all hints of Obama's prior knowledge from his July 2016 statement explaining why Mrs. Clinton would not be indicted for her illegal acts.

Despite these indisputable facts, reports at the nation's three gatekeeping establishment press outlets have not mentioned Obama's name in connection with any of this.

Joy Pullmann at TheFederalist.com explained these matters Thursday afternoon:

Too bad the best he could do was take us from losing 800K jobs per month, double digit unemployment, two wars, rising health care costs and 50 million uninsured Americans to gaining the longest, continual job growth in our nations history.  Unemployment just a shade over 4%. Paid for and drew down Bush's wars.  Slowed the rising cost of health care for the 1st time in a generation. 30 million more Americans with health care.  Lowest uninsured rate in our nations history.  Oh yeah, stock market hit an all time high under Obama.  Yes, my 401K didn't quite triple but it was about 2.5X greater than when he assumed office.  Abortions at an all time low.  Man, he really sucked.

It is basically pointless to even argue with Obama supporters at this stage of the game.

He lost his party 1000 seats, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court.

His performance led to Donald Trump as his successor.

The Progressive base of the left feels betrayed or absolutely disgusted by his continued drone strikes, war mongering, failure to pass universal health care, card check, failure to pass living wage legislation etc etc.

He destroyed the party for a generation but boy could he fake his way through reading a teleprompter.

It will be 20 years before the Democrats pass another legislative bill on the national level.

Too many feelings and not enough tactical strategy. This is where Trump destroys the Left in spades.

Going by individual people numbers No.
Going by electoral college voters No.

And the Electoral College voters rightly or wrongly have the say.
( I maybe wrong here as I’m not American)

Obama came across as a weak person, had nothing about his persona
Liberal leftists governments & leaders fitted in with him.

Russia / China / Japan had little respect for him & his like.

Look at who many European countries are turning away from that ill thought
Out thinking - Thankfully That traitorous bitch Merkel is having huge problems
With the scum she let in & now the German people & politicians are against her.

I'm not saying Trump didn't win the election. I was referring to Hillary getting more votes. The Majority of the country voted for Hillary. The majority of the E.C. votes went to Trump. He won under our system. Again, when you say We can say now... you mean Trump supporters which I would expect to say that. Doesn't make it true.

If you're to keep repeating this talking point, at least put it in context.  All of her popular vote spread came from California.  And there was no popular vote contest.  Did Trump even visit California?  I doubt he held any rallies there.  If there was a popular vote contest, the parties would campaign much differently.

Obama: Are we a nation that rips families apart?
The Hill ^ | Justin Wise - 06/20/18 | Justin Wise - 06/20/18
Posted on 6/20/2018, 1:54:06 PM by yesthatjallen

Former President Barack Obama is calling out President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that separates families at the border, asking "are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms, or are we a nation that values families, and works to keep them together?"

"If you've been fortunate enough to have been born in America, imagine for a moment if circumstance had placed you somewhere else," Obama said in a statement on Facebook to commemorate World Refugee Day. "Imagine if you'd been born in a country where you grew up fearing for your life, and eventually the lives of your children. A place where you finally found yourself so desperate to flee persecution, violence, and suffering that you'd be willing to travel thousands of miles under cover of darkness, enduring dangerous conditions, propelled forward by that very human impulse to create for our kids a better life."

Obama later criticized the policy that has resulted in thousands of families being separated at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that watching these families broken apart in real time poses a very simple question to Americans.

"Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms, or are we a nation that values families, and works to keep them together? Do we look away, or do we choose to see something of ourselves and our children?"

ETC...

“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” Obama said in his first public comments in months, which only a few reporters and no cameras were allowed in for. “Because that’s part of what happened in the last election.

I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” Obama said.

“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” Obama said in his first public comments in months, which only a few reporters and no cameras were allowed in for. “Because that’s part of what happened in the last election. I heard that too much.”

When You Hear What Obama Just Said About Healthcare You Will Know Irony Is Officially Dead
Daily Caller ^ | 06/30/2018 | Benny Johnson
Posted on 6/30/2018, 10:18:37 AM by gattaca

President Obama gave a scathing critique of the modern Democratic Party during a fundraiser at the Beverly Hills home of a mega-donor Thursday.

The former president was reluctant, however, to take any of the blame for the current state of the Democratic Party. Obama admitted that the only regret he has after being head of the party for eight years was that people loved and focused on him too much.

But the majority of Obama’s speech was spent criticizing president Trump. One of the Trump policies Obama took issue with was his effort to kill Obamacare. The healthcare law is Obama’s cornerstone legislative achievement and has been chipped away at by the GOP since Trump’s inauguration.

“I am not surprised that instead of replacing what we had done with something better, they just have done their best to undermine and erode what’s already in place,” Obama complained at the event. “Of course people are going to be angry about that, because if you had health care and suddenly somebody who says they’re going to make it better comes in and makes it worse, you’ll be pissed. You should go out and vote.”

The quote is deeply ironic since Obama himself learned a harsh electoral lesson after promising to make health care “better” and ending up making it “worse.”

There were multiple instances during which Obama went on about how Obamacare would improve the American healthcare system. After passage, premiums rose and Americans were not able to keep their doctors. In response, the American public dealt the Democratic party crushing electoral defeats on virtually every level of government.

Obama continued, chiding Democrats for “moping” at “cocktail parties.”

Obama said, “If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying ‘civilization is collapsing’ and you are nervous and worried, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don’t actually think civilization is collapsing … or you are not pushing yourself hard enough and I would push harder.”

Late in 2017, the GOP repealed the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate in passage of the tax cuts...

Report: Obama 'shocked' by settlement expansion
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/7/18 | David Rosenberg
Posted on 7/10/2018, 3:48:09 AM by Eleutheria5

A series of maps of Judea and Samaria, focusing on the placement of Jewish communities and Israeli military facilities in the area, provoked a dramatic change in the Obama administration’s policies vis-à-vis Israel, a report by The New Yorker claims.

According to the report Monday, a presentation by then-Secretary of State John Kerry to President Barack Obama in the waning days of the administration ‘shocked’ the president into taking a more aggressive stance towards Israel, withholding America’s veto on a United Nations Security Council resolution critical of Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria.

The Obama administration, like its predecessors, had in the past backed a final status settlement negotiated by Israel and the Palestinian Authority and opposed unilateral actions regarding core final status issues. In this vein, the US had traditionally used its veto power on the Security Council to block resolutions directed against Israel.

In December 2016, however, the Obama administration permitted UNSC Resolution 2334 to pass – a measure which demanded Israel unilaterally freeze all construction in not only Judea and Samaria, but eastern Jerusalem as well.

The decision to abandon Israel at the Security Council – a significant departure from traditional US policy – after the president was presented with a series of maps collected at the behest of a senior State Department official, Frank Lowenstein.

The collection of maps, assembled in 2015 by Lowenstein and updated by the State Department in 2016, was presented to Obama and key advisers by Secretary of State John Kerry during a 2016 Oval Office meeting.

Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes claimed the president was shocked by the maps showing the division of Judea and Samaria and the scope of Jewish settlement in the area.

It is basically pointless to even argue with Obama supporters at this stage of the game.

He lost his party 1000 seats, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court.

His performance led to Donald Trump as his successor.

The Progressive base of the left feels betrayed or absolutely disgusted by his continued drone strikes, war mongering, failure to pass universal health care, card check, failure to pass living wage legislation etc etc.

He destroyed the party for a generation but boy could he fake his way through reading a teleprompter.

It will be 20 years before the Democrats pass another legislative bill on the national level.

Too many feelings and not enough tactical strategy. This is where Trump destroys the Left in spades.

Assuming you are not a democrat and based on your list, it appears he did three things for you.

New York billionaire George Soros said former President Barack Obama was his "greatest disappointment," during a wide-ranging interview with the New York Times published on Tuesday, while also appearing to distance himself from partisan politics.

The wealthy liberal donor, who was an early supporter of Obama’s 2008 presidential run, told The Times that Obama was "actually my greatest disappointment," before he was reportedly prompted by an aide to clarify that he was dissatisfied on a "professional level," rather than with his presidency.

Obama: Women need to get more involved because men are 'getting on my nerves'
The Hill ^ | 07/18/18 | Justin Wise
Posted on 7/18/2018, 12:22:35 PM

Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for women to get more involved in social movements because men have been "getting on my nerves."

"Women, in particular, by the way, I want you to get more involved," Obama said while hosting a town hall for young African leaders in South Africa. "Because men have been getting on my nerves lately. I mean, every day, I read the newspaper and I just think like, brothers what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us?

Obama added that "empowering more women on the continent" would "lead to some better policies" right away.

CNN notes that Obama later said that both men and women cannot pretend that politics doesn't matter.

"The one thing you can't do is pretend that politics doesn't matter and say to yourself 'that's too corrupt, that's too broken, I'm not going to get involved in it' because at some point if you are ambitious about what you are doing in your home country, you will confront politics," Obama said.

His call for action came a day after Obama appeared to indirectly criticize President Trump while delivering the 2018 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg.

In his speech on Tuesday, Obama warned that “strongman politics are ascending suddenly, whereby elections, some pretense of democracy, are maintained, the form of it.”

He also brought up leaders who "completely make stuff up" in an apparent dig at Trump, adding that the undermining of facts could lead to democracy's "undoing."

"We see the utter loss of shame in political leaders when they’re caught in a lie and they just double down and lie some more," Obama said.

The speech came just one day after Trump drew widespread condemnation for the comments he made in a joint press conference in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Obama's call for women to get more involved coincides with a year in which many women are running for public office. In March, Politico reported that at least 575 women had declared intention to run for the House, the Senate or governor.

Obama says he's from Kenya, again
World News Daily ^ | July 22, 2018
Posted on 7/23/2018, 8:35:39 AM by Zakeet

Why do so many Americans still believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya?

Maybe because he keeps insisting it's so.

He did again last week, while visiting his ancestral homeland of Kogelo.

Participating in the opening of Sauti Kuu Resource Center, a youth facility built by his half-sister, Auma Obama, he said: "Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya. When I was president it was a little bit harder to get up here cause my plane didn't fit the tarmac up here."

"While three years ago my sister Auma introduced me before I gave a speech, today I’m really coming as a brother, as a citizen of the world, as someone with a connection to Africa to talk about the importance of what she's doing but also to create a larger context for what's possible," Obama continued.

So, which is it - native-born son of Kenya, native-born son of Hawaii or native-born citizen of the world?

Obama says he's from Kenya, again
World News Daily ^ | July 22, 2018
Posted on 7/23/2018, 8:35:39 AM by Zakeet

Why do so many Americans still believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya?

Maybe because he keeps insisting it's so.

He did again last week, while visiting his ancestral homeland of Kogelo.

"he said: "Now, three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya."

So, which is it - native-born son of Kenya, native-born son of Hawaii or native-born citizen of the world?

Anyone who is prepared to listen / give them any kind of help or tolerance

Your fired....

The editor of the biographical text about Barack Obama which was included in the booklet maintained that the mention of Kenya was an error on her part and was not based on any information provided to her by Obama himself:

Miriam Goderich edited the text of the bio; she is now a partner at the Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its current clients.

“You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time,” Goderich wrote. “There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”

A New York Times article about Barack Obama published in 1990, a year before the Acton & Dystel promotional booklet was issued, correctly identified his birthplace as Hawaii.

So the journal did exist - so that 1st assumption of Your was wrong.
And it wasn’t concocted - your surprise / assumptions ther was also wrong.
IF the article is taken from what obuma said ( Notice I said IF ) then you
Should be asking Why would obuma lie about his birth place.
Are the other statements about obuma in that piece also made up & incorrect
If they are then that adds validity to your doubt.

Ok, a bio written by someone else that he is from Kenya, vs a birth certificate, a newspaper clip from the time he was born announcing his birth in a Hawaiian paper, that groups of birthers spent untold hours and dollars trying to prove he wasnt born here, and that he was vetted for President of the United States and served 8 years... I'm thinking based on what is likely true, it can be dismissed as an error

"Lazy" Obama will begin campaigning after Labor Day...staying above the fray.

Posted on 8/5/2018, 9:46:54 AM by JLAGRAYFOX

"Lazy", Ex-POTUS Barack Hussein Obama the appointed Democrat Leader of the Pack, chosen by Democrat leaders, Chuck Schumer & Nancy Pelosi to be the "Lynch Pin" Mid-Term" election Chief Campaigner for the Democrat Party has stated he has no intention of going "head-to-head" with Republican, POTUS, Donald J. Trump, or other Republicans.

That means, the will be very few, if any, "Trump Style" campaign activities, featuring "Massive Democrat Party Political Rallies" to excite the Democrat base of voters.

Obama will stick to mainly fund raising meetings and activities which is more to his mantra of lazy campaigning with friends and allies. The average American voter will see and touch very little of Barack Hussein Obama.

It also appears, that Schumer, Pelosi, Perez, Ellison, Warren, Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, Booker, etc., have no guts or stomach to pound the pavement countrywide, with massive political rallies. Could it be that they, too, are lazy like Obama, or are they like Obama, frightened that very few voters, relative to what a "Trump" political rally draws, thousands of motivated, Trump supporters/voters to every mass event?

Shucks...I thought the rank & file Democrats voters were energized 100% for these upcoming Mid-Term Elections? I guess Obama has had his fifteen minutes of fame. Go figure, folks.

Obama Center Breaks Pledge Not to Remove Trees in Jackson Park
www.breitbart.com ^ | 8/11/18 | Warner Todd Huston
Posted on 8/12/2018, 5:41:21 AM by a little elbow grease

(snip) -- Despite claims by Obama representatives, the famed Jackson Park, designed by landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in 1893, will see major alterations even though the park was placed on the federal National Register of Historic Places in 1972. And preservationists say the Obama Center is destroying the carefully planned parklands across the city’s Lake Shore region.

The claim that the Center will not force the city, state, or federal governments to spend tax dollars on the complex is also coming up false. According to the Wall Street Journal, taxpayers are now being asked for nearly two hundred million dollars for costs resulting from the Obama Center.

“Now comes news that Illinois taxpayers will put up at least $174 million for roadway and transit reconfigurations needed to accommodate the Obama Center.

Former Obama chief of staff and current embattled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel thinks the $174 million in tax dollars to be spent on the center is “money well spent.”

Parma Heights man granted clemency by Obama sent back to prison on drug charge

Posted on 8/14/2018, 11:24:07 AM by Oldeconomybuyer

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Parma Heights man who spent 22 years in prison before President Barack Obama granted him clemency is headed back to prison for a separate drug case.

Antwon Rogers, 47, pleaded guilty Wednesday to drug possession, a third-degree felony, in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. Judge Michael Shaughnessy sentenced him to nine months in prison.

Rogers could spend additional time in prison if a federal judge determines the guilty plea constitutes a violation of the terms of his probation in a prior federal drug case.

In that case, Rogers was sentenced to life in prison in January 1995 for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 139.8 grams of cocaine. In March 2015, Obama commuted the remainder of Rogers' sentence, and he was released shortly thereafter.

IA China Ops Wiped Out By 'Botched' Spy Contact System
Conservative Daily Post ^ | 18 Aug 2018 | Mark Megahan
Posted on 8/18/2018, 8:10:30 PM by UMCRevMom@aol.com

CIA China Ops Wiped Out By 'Botched; Spy Contact System: Investigation results show indicted spy Jerry Chun Shing Lee was not the CIA's only security breach. Sloppy coding led to a back door hole in the messaging system, used by the Chinese to 'wipe out' our entire spy network.

 Suddenly, in late 2010, undercover agents in China were being rounded up and hauled off for interrogation.

Under Barack Obama's administration, the Central Intelligence Agency suffered what intelligence officers are calling one of the worst disasters in decades. Suddenly, in late 2010, undercover agents in China were being rounded up and hauled off for interrogation. Eventually, it’s believed at least 30 were executed. The pinpoint accuracy of the arrests was unnerving.

"You could tell the Chinese weren't guessing. The Ministry of State Security were always pulling in the right people," one source relates. The investigators final report concluded that a "confluence and combination of events" had "wiped out the spy network," another of the former officials adds. Every agent arrested was eventually killed. Hillary Clinton and John Kerry escaped retribution, just like Benghazi, some say.

Over a span of the next two years (2010-2012), the Chinese government "systematically dismantled" the CIA's network of spies. To play it down, it was originally reported as "more than a dozen" instead of almost three dozen assets killed by China. Since then, everyone has been wondering how they were able to do it.

A combination of three factors came into play, but one crucially overshadowed the others. Bad coding left a security hole big enough for the Chinese to walk right in the CIA's back door.

A group of five "current and former intelligence officials" agreed to meet with reporters at news outlet Foreign Policy, to discuss the results of a "special task force" probe into what happened. The individuals requested anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the investigation.

The task force found three "potential causes of the failure," the former officials report. A double agent might have passed "information about the CIA asset network," on to his Chinese handlers but overshadowing factors are more likely to blame.

The "CIA's spy work had been sloppy and might have been detected by Chinese authorities," the sources confirm. Most importantly, "the communications system had been compromised."

"Shellshocked" intelligence officials tried to minimize the damage and hustle sources out of the country. "the last CIA case officer to have meetings with sources in China distributed large sums of cash to the agents who remained behind, hoping the money would help them flee."

When they brought the software in from Middle East operations, they thought it was secure but didn't factor in that the environment there was "considerably less hazardous."

They also underestimated China's capabilities to hack their way in. One source said the China office felt "invincible." The attitude was "that we've got this, we're untouchable."

CIA officer Jerry Chun Shing Lee was recruited about then as a double agent. Working extensively in Beijing, Lee "was in contact with his handlers at the Ministry of State Security through at least 2011."

According to court documents from his May indictment, Lee was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the Chinese.

The officials explain that as bad as Lee's alleged treachery was, it still can't explain what happened, simply because "information about sources is so highly compartmentalized that Lee would not have known their identities."

Other clues support the theory that the worst part of the compromise was "that China had managed to eavesdrop on the communications between agents and their CIA handlers."

Brand new sources are never trusted because they might be a spy already. Newbies only get to use a temporary "covert communications system." The one they used in China was "Internet-based and accessible from laptop or desktop computers," two former agents agreed.

The "throwaway" system was still encrypted, the agents explain and it allowed "remote communication between an intelligence officer and a source." More importantly, it "also separated from the main communications system used with vetted sources, reducing the risk if an asset goes bad."

They were supposed to be totally separate. If the interim system was breached, those using the main system should still be safe. If done correctly, there would be no way to "trace the communication back to the CIA."

It was not done correctly. According to the sources, the “CIA’s interim system contained a technical error.” It was “architecturally” connected to “the CIA’s main covert communications platform.”

As soon as the link was discovered, both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency ran “penetration tests,” that failed miserably. “Cyber experts with access to the interim system could also access the broader covert communications system the agency was using to interact with its vetted sources.”

If we could find the “digital links” then so could the Chinese. That “would have made it relatively easy for China to deduce that the covert communications system was being used by the CIA.” One expert asserts “some of these links pointed back to parts of the CIA’s own website.”

As far back as 2010 U.S. technicians were aware of China’s “highly sophisticated” internet monitoring. With their “Great Firewall,” they constantly monitor internet traffic looking for any unusual patterns.

The agency was well aware at the time, “online anonymity of any kind was proving increasingly difficult.”

Either double agent Lee gave the Chinese access to the communications platform, which he got from his handler or the Chinese may have identified another agent and accessed that person’s computer.

The interim system may have been detected simply through routine pattern analysis of the internet data.

Even assets who didn’t use the communications system were vulnerable. “Once a person was identified as a CIA asset, Chinese intelligence could then track the agent’s meetings with handlers and unravel the entire network.”

The sources are convinced that the Chinese shared the information they gathered with Russia, where a similar system was in use.

At the same time Chinese sources were being purged, “multiple sources in Russia suddenly severed their relationship with their CIA handlers,” NBC news reported and the former officials confirmed. Going dark is not a good thing. If they didn’t escape, they are dead.

Five States Win $839 Million Obamacare Lawsuit
Breitbart - Big Government ^ | 8-24-2018 | Ken Klukowski
Posted on 8/24/2018, 4:10:57 PM by Sir Napsalot

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading a five-state coalition that on Thursday won an $839 million judgment against the federal government in an Obamacare lawsuit, a massive blow to the Obama administration’s namesake legislation.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA, better known as Obamacare) requires medical providers to pay a Health Insurance Provider Fee (HIPF). Even though the ACA exempts states from paying that fee when providing health care, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) during the Obama era created a regulation requiring states to pay the fee anyway, a fee that is styled as a tax on the states.

Paxton sued in federal court, joined by Indiana, Nebraska, Kansas, and Louisiana. The five states’ lawsuit argues that this tax/fee is illegal under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) because the ACA clearly exempts states from this payment and also that even if the statute did allow it, such taxes would violate the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution when imposed on sovereign states.

Obama Goes on Attack, But Arguments Fall Flat Against Trump Successes
Townhall.com ^ | September 11, 2018 | Cal Thomas
Posted on 9/11/2018, 10:13:57 AM by Kaslin


He's back! President Obama has emerged from his supposed cloistered life to attack President Trump. Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor.

Obama, who reportedly has been running his "Organizing for America" operation, along with his White House aide Valerie Jarrett from his expensive home in a Washington neighborhood, spoke to a group of University of Illinois students last Friday, claiming it was his policies, not those of President Trump, that have produced the current economic boom.

"When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's just remember when this recovery started," Obama said.

But during the Obama administration, the Gross Domestic Product never exceeded 3 percent annually. Obama said the days of strong economic growth were behind us, that many manufacturing jobs were lost and not returning and that candidate Trump didn't have a "magic wand" to fix the economy. But in the second quarter of this year, economic growth exceeded 4 percent and manufacturing jobs are making a comeback.

By the time Obama left office, the unemployment rate had declined from a high approaching 8 percent at the start of his administration to just under 5 percent, but was beginning to tick back upward, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In less than two years of the Trump administration, the nation has effectively gained full employment (3.9 percent unemployment rate) with minority unemployment reaching record lows.

Obama should receive some credit for the way his administration helped the country after the 2007 recession, but not all the credit he now claims for himself.

Hourly earnings, which were largely stagnant during the Obama years, have increased an average 2.9 percent over the last year.

Obama's speech was part of a carefully coordinated strategy to win back a House majority for Democrats. This has included demonstrators at the hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh; the Bob Woodward book "Fear" and the daily and sometimes hourly torrent of anti-Trump invective from the major media, which see impeachment as their only hope of returning the establishment to power.

Trump did himself a favor by not responding to Obama's speech in kind. Instead of taking to Twitter for a blistering attack, he joked that Obama's speech put him to sleep.

The president did something last week I have long urged him to do. Statistics are dry. Show people who have jobs they couldn't find during the Obama years.

In a speech in North Dakota, the president brought a man onstage who thanked him for his economic policies that allowed the man to go back to work.

Here's how The Daily Caller reported the story: "The man told a story about the coal industry under Obama and how 'the coal industry absolutely had the boot of government on its throat.

"'Many, many jobs were lost,' the coal miner said, 'and many towns were destroyed by this. It was just a horrible thing. Horrible suffering happened in this country. Really for made-up reasons, I think. And what your administration does -- has done -- is bringing us back to life.'"

The audience cheered.

This is the way to counter the resistance. Keep showcasing people who were unemployed during the Obama years, but now have jobs. The president should then say if Democrats win a congressional majority they will stifle his successes and try to return to the failed policies of the past.

That objective is what Obama meant in his speech. It is the opposite strategy, one that is working, that President Trump stressed in his. A show and tell approach can work against the tidal wave of opposition coming from the left.

Flesh and blood are more powerful than ink and paper and TV news.

TOP COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OFFICIAL CLAIMS OBAMA STATE DEPARTMENT ‘INDULGED IN SEXUAL FAVORS’ AT..
Daily Caller ^ | 9/14/2018 | Jon Brown
Posted on 9/14/2018, 3:59:27 PM by bitt

A former top counterintelligence official has “described his consternation at the recklessness of State Department officials of both sexes during the Obama years who indulged in sexual favors from in-room masseurs during their stays at the Moscow Ritz,” according to a recent story by Politico.

The striking statement, made in the extensive article about young Russians who live and work in Washington, D.C., is not expanded upon. The former official is left unnamed. The anecdote was offered to explain that not every Russian attempt to sexually manipulate intelligence targets is directed toward Republicans.

The presidential suite of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow became infamous as the site of President Donald Trump’s alleged dalliances with Russian prostitutes, which featured as one of the most salacious elements of Christopher Steele’s dossier. Insisting that he is a “germaphobe,” the president has denied the dossier’s allegations that he paid prostitutes to urinate on a bed once used by President Obama.

Not going to bother reading more. I don't give a rip about anyone's sexual escapades. Trump is welcome to enjoy all the golden showers he wants. If Obama gets massages with 'happy endings', that's cool. Maybe Bush is into bondage (he was tightly strapped into a flight suit). Clinton seems like a fellow who is up for whatever.

Clinton is rumored to have visited some pedophile billionaires island. If true, he should be held accountable.

If Dems Lose Again, Obama’s Legacy Is Gone Forever
The Daily Beast ^ | October 5, 2018 | by Jonathan Alter
Posted on 10/5/2018, 3:07:32 PM by Oldeconomybuyer

It’s one of this autumn’s pleasant surprises. Two years after Donald Trump’s election as president and 10 years after his own, Barack Obama is gracefully re-entering our consciousness, reminding us of what we have lost and may yet recover.

The contrast between Obama and Trump - decent vs. despicable; incisive vs. ignorant; honest vs. humbug; classy vs. clownish - is now the critical subtext of the 2018 campaign. With Obama’s current approval ratings more than 20 points higher than Trump’s, the aching memory of his presidency will help energize Democrats in the midterms.

But Obama’s return is also a reminder that some of his admirable qualities—modesty, prudence, deliberateness - have inadvertently helped Republicans endanger everything he built.

If Obama’s reputation is secure, his legacy is not. Many of his accomplishments in office are in danger of being wiped out in November. The personal stakes for him and his place in history are high.

Now, just weeks away, comes a fork in road. One way leads to the validation of Donald Trump and makes his reelection more likely. Six more years of him as president would mean the extinction of nearly everything Barack Obama achieved beyond becoming the first black president. The other path offers a chance at redemption. If enough Democrats stop knocking on wood and start knocking on doors, the president they revere may yet live large in history for more than the content of his character.

He must think to himself, "I did everything right. I defended their honor, championed their feminist beliefs and causes, respected their human rights as women, and valiantly led the charge against macho men, misogynists, conservatives, bigots, and rapists. So how come Natalie won't spend the night with me but she dates that stupid asshole who slaps her around and cheats on her? God, please give me strength and keep me from believing I've been wrong this whole time and the alpha asshole guys were right."
