If you think for one second that ‘America’s Confirmed Bachelor’ Sen. Lindsey Graham intends to bring his buddy Barack Obama before the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, guess again.
In regards to the declassification of the Obama Administration’s cover-up while they framed President Trump’s former National Security Advisor, Lt Gen Michael Flynn, the Palmetto State’s senior senator made clear that he has zero intention of ever calling Comrade Barry to testify before his committee.
Senate Republicans will investigate the Obama administration’s decision to target national security adviser Michael Flynn following the 2016 presidential election, but they do not intend to subpoena former President Barack Obama or require him to testify in front of a panel,Politico reports.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told media Tuesday that his committee is prepared to investigate former Obama administration officials, particularly officials affiliated with the Department of Justice, and the FBI over their targeting of Flynn in light of Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop perjury charges against the former national security advisor. Barack Obama will likely be left off the list of those asked to testify.
“I’m not anticipating calling President Obama,” Graham said, adding that it was likely the panel will question FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
Remember Newsweek magazine? That’s the weekly publication that use to be of standard thickness, but now has about as much content as a doctor’s waiting room pamphlet on syphilis.
The ragazine that’s now firmly in place with the DNC’s Ministry of Propaganda is now demanding to know who paid for the president’s adult children and their spouses attending Queen Elizabeth’s recent State Dinner in London.
President Donald Trump’s adult children who do not work in the administration made headlines this week for traveling with their father on an official trip to the United Kingdom, and some critics have gone further to wonder who is paying for their presumably costly participation.
Pollster and Whitman Insight Strategies director Matt McDermott on Wednesday tweeted a photo of Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and his wife Lara Trump, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, and Tiffany Trump from the U.K. state dinner at Buckingham Palace on Monday.
“4 of 6 people in this photo have no official government position,” McDermott wrote, referring to everyone except Ivanka Trump and Kushner who are senior White House advisers. “They run private businesses, are campaign advisers. Why are they attending an official state dinner on behalf of the United States?”
Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are executive vice presidents of the Trump Organization, while Lara Trump is a Trump 2020 senior campaign adviser and Tiffany Trump is a Georgetown Law student.
Hold on a sec… in Newsweek’s first paragraph, they claim that none of President Trump’s adult children “work in the administration”, but just a few short paragraphs later, Newsweek cites that Ivanka does. I guess Newsweek doesn’t even read what their own sources say.
Even further down the article, Newsweek finally got around to printing;
A White House official told Newsweek on Wednesday afternoon that the four non-administration members of the Trump family who joined the trip were personally paying.
Oddly enough, Newsweek was rather mum when it came to the Famiglia Obama taking a one-month long vacay to Africa, complete with 56 total support vehicles, to include 14 of limos and three of trucks loaded with extra bullet-proof glass, and an entire US Navy/US Marine amphibious assault group or a complete aircraft carrier task force… just in case.
But if you haven’t received your daily recommended amount of fake news, you’re going to love this.
From the summer of 2013, the Washington Post made mention of the contents of the Obamas rather hefty go-bag;
Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency.
Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bulletproof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.
The elaborate security provisions — which will cost the government tens of millions of dollars — are outlined in a confidential internal planning document obtained by The Washington Post. While the preparations app
The Pose finally got around towards the end of the article that “Obama’s trip could cost the federal government $60 million to $100 million based on the costs of similar African trips in recent years, according to one person familiar with the journey…”
What? “Based on the costs of similar African trips”? That means nothing.
Additionally, there’s a new wrinkle to presidential travel. Also cited by the WaPo;
Officials said the Secret Service does not want the president traveling anywhere without a top-rated trauma center nearby. The White House medical unit makes decisions about which foreign hospitals meet its standards when it makes advance visits to the locations for planned trips, officials said.
In much of the developing world, the U.S. Navy provides a “floating hospital” on an aircraft carrier or amphibious ship nearby, officials said.
“This is what you need to support the American presidency,” Atkiss said of the requirements, “regardless of who the president is.”
I don’t recall Clinton or Dubya needing an entire task force to go on vacation.
By the way, a carrier or an amphib (a carrier in its own right) NEVER travels alone. Both are surrounded by a veritable fleet of additional warships (to include subs) and supply ships.
I wonder how many billions it cost the Pentagon to deploy dozens of ships and thousands of troops to essentially babysit the Obamas just because Barry and Mike don’t trust African hospitals?
Democrats, Dimocrats, and sewer rats are all in full-blown Trump Derangment Syndrome over the president’s none-too veiled threat to declare a national emergency under the National Emergencies Act of 1978-2018.
As everyone surely knows, two illegal alien children have tragically died while in the custody of CBP (Customs and Border Patrol).
Predictably, Democrat politicians and their lackies in the media are venting their collective spleens with accusations of President Trump turning the CBP into a latter day Geheime Staatspolizei (aka: the Gestapo).
Over Christmas, there was another tragedy at the border. An eight-year-old migrant boy died while in the custody of the Border Patrol. It’s horrible. It’s not something that anyone wants in these situations, but U.S. immigration authorities didn’t murder the child, which is heavily insinuated if not suggested by members of the liberal media. We have some folks going off half-cocked saying we have full-blown concentration camps under the Trump presidency when it comes to border enforcement. It’s straight up insanity. Then again, what would you expect the reaction would be from a movement that wants open borders?
When Obama was running for his second term, I asked a friend of mine (a black woman) who she was voting for in the upcoming election. She looked at me rather incredulously and shot back, “Obama, of course!”
Fair enough. But my next question, “So what’s Obama done to improve your life?”
Now the Left is in meltdown over illegal alien minors being separated from their illegal alien parents.
Never mind that the legal precedent was signed into law under Barack Obama. Amazingly enough, there wasn’t a whole lot of outrage from the same Leftie-scum.
While I’m at it… ask your favorite #NeverTrump crybaby exactly how many illegals they happen to provide refuge to in their own homes? As we all know, the answer will be zero.
Again, while I’m at it… ask the same #NeverTrump crybaby if they happen to have a functioning front door to their apartment, home, mansion, whatever. Of course, they’ll say that obviously they have a functioning front door to their apartment, home, mansion, whatever.
Then ask them WHY they even bother having said functioning front door?
It’s quite amusing watching the lights slowly come on.
Anyhow, enjoy this flashback to the Blunder Years of Barry Obama;
Seriously, I’ve got nothing against black people in general or any other racial or ethnic group. But there is a specific circumstance where I’m an absolute, first-class bigot.
I despise mindless drones who willfully surrender their ability for critical thinking just so they can follow the rest of the hive.
Sure looks like LeBron James and Steph Curry have forgotten that not all that long ago, black Americans loved everything Trump.
I certainly won’t insult the readers’ intelligence by posting all those pics that numerous black citizens-of-note who leapt when it came time for a photo-op with The Donald. The same pics are easily found by way of a simple image search.
Anyhow, like the bleating sheep that they are, James and Curry have answered the call by the unholy trinity of the Establishment Media, Al Sharpton and Nancy Pelosi ordering the slave-mentality minded to condemn everything Trump.
Case in point: ESPN is singing the praises of James and Curry for both announcing that neither of their respective teams will visit mean ol’ Trump when the 2018 NBA champs will eventually be crowned later this month.
These two dim-wits are about as edgy as a bowling ball.
Predictably, the rest of the Establishment Media is screaming in the faces of whoever will listen to them how cool it is to boycott the White House.
But wait… is that the same ESPN who pilloried goaltender Tim Thomas of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup winners, the Boston Bruins? Yep, sure is.
Quicker than you could say double standard,Joe McDonald of ESPN penned back in January of 2012, his article entitled “Tim Thomas put himself above team”;
But when the president of the United States invites you and all your teammates to the White House to honor your Stanley Cup championship, you go and represent the team.
On Monday, Thomas instead chose to represent himself.
Goalie Tim Thomas declined the invitation, however, calling into question his choice to place his own political leanings over a team event.
Never missing a chance to hate on white folks, even the lily-white Leftie English at The Guardian chimed in;
In so boldly declaring himself an individual who made choices only on his behalf, Thomas neglected the very first and basic rule of sports: It’s a team game. You win as a team, you lose as a team, and you say hello to the president as a team. Thomas was a stand out in the Bruins’ Stanley Cup campaign, but he did it as part of a collective.
Hmm… “as part of a collective.” Locutus of the Borg couldn’t have said it any better.
But then there’s this gem by Dave Hodge of Canada’s TSN;
Don’t know if it’s fair to point this out, but Tim Thomas has three children named Kiley, Kelsey and Keegan.
As just about the entire world already knows, President Donald Trump has accomplished something that Clinton, Dubya and Obama consistently failed at. Namely, breaking the Kim Dynasty and their grip on nuclear weapons.
But before I go any further, allow me to say… hey liberals, suck it.
With that out of the way, can you imagine just how pissed-off Democrats are?
Not only has The Donald bigly punked-out Lil’ Kim coming to the negotiations table, the North Korean despot will “refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests” according to Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s national security director as reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
As the South Korean spy chief also noted, he delivered a signed letter personally signed by Kim. Shockingly enough, Kim admitted he “understood that the U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises that are scheduled for this spring ‘must continue.’”
Golly gee, ever get the feeling President Trump has his heel firmly clamped-down directly on Kim’s throat?
Yeah, he does. Yet again, I feel compelled to say, hey liberals, suck it.
In light of Trump’s steadfastness regarding the NoKo nuclear threat, the white-hot heat that burns deep in the hearts of members of the Jackass Party is something that just makes me so very, very happy.
And just to rub Democrat noses even harder in it, allow me to cite some of the text of Barack Obama’s citation 2009 Nobel Peace Prize; (emphasis mine)
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.
Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.
Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.
Like every head-to-head competition, Trump has proven that capitalists are the do-ers, while socialists like Obama may deliver snappy (and previously written) speeches, they rarely actually do anything.
I’m sure we all remember the still smoldering dumpster fire better known as the Obama Economy.
All on his own, Obama doubled the national debt more than every president from George Washington to George Bush (an historic first); an anemic GDP that never gained more than three percent (another historic first); unemployment for young black men hovering at fifty percent (yet another historic first), it’s a safe bet that Comrade Barry was in the deep-end of the pool when he should have kept his narrow ass in the shallows.
While the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka: “The Obama Stimulus Package”) was suppose to repair infrastructure across the nation, the only thing Obama succeeded in doing was watching $1 trillion evaporate.
And who could forget who could forget such Obama economic miracles such as the fine folks at Solyndra who whistled all the way to the bank after scamming the American taxpayers out of half a billion dollars.
But one thing I will give to Obama was a painfully slow up-hill battle that Wall Street managed to wage, in spite of Obama’s socialism.
On the day Obama won his first national election, Nov 4, 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9,625. Fast forward eight years and change when Trump won in his bid for the Oval Office, the DJIA closed at 18,332.
OK… a total of 8,707 points for two terms. Not bad.
But wait. In the fourteen months since Trump was declared the winner of his race, Jan 17, 2018, the same DJIA has nearly doubled (26,115) in what it took an Obama-led economy over eight-years to pick-up.
In other words;
During the eight-YEARS of Obama, the Dow rose 8,707
During the 14-MONTHS of Trump, the Dow rose 7,783
Should I mention now that female unemployment is at a 17-year low? Or that black and Latino unemployment numbers are now at the lowest levels in the history of unemployment statistics?
No. I’ll let your (increased) paychecks speak for themselves.
Nothing drives Democrats up the wall faster than the truth. Especially when it comes to talking about building a wall.
To assist my fellow citizens who agree with me that we’ve endured at least the past quarter century at the receiving end of a millions strong silent invasion of no-skill/low-skill laborers.
Much like the Democrat convulsions over Trump possibly allowing Obama’s DACA dying on the vine, how quick those same Democrats fail to remember that DACA was an Obama “temporary fix” with no guarantee of immunity, amnesty or to be seen as “a pathway to citizenship”.
And let’s not forget that the travel ban on certain Muslim-majority nation didn’t originate with Trump, but with Barack Hussein.
Anyhow, with the Border Wall about to be in the news non-stop for the next few weeks, here’s a couple if videos you may want to share with those who wish to rail against Trump, just show them these videos;
While the Obama cuckolds are sniping at President Trump for defending the Iranian freedom marchers taking to the streets, the former Israeli ambassador to the United States and current Deputy to the Prime Minister, Michael Oren, just went public in accusing Barack Obama of kowtowing to the goon squad leadership Tehran, all so the ex-president could secure for himself a place in history by signing a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
Oren, himself a former paratrooper in the Israeli Army, is a member of the Kulanu (All of Us) political party, which happens to favor a two-state solution with the Palestinians.
“The Obama administration’s lack of support for the (2009) Green Revolution was part of a pattern in which it did not hold Iran accountable for any provocation.
It would seem it was part of a general approach that began in Obama’s first week in office in 2009 of wanting to reach a deal with Iran at pretty much any cost.”
Oren went on to list a number provocations by the Iranian government that Barack Obama and his administration purposefully chose to turn a blind eye to;
The violent crackdown on the 2009 Green Revolution protesters
The kidnapping of American citizens
Having their missile boats provocatively approach American destroyers
Trying to assassinate him [Obama] and his Saudi counterpart in downtown Washington
The failure to follow through on a red line Obama imposed on Syrian dictator Bashar Assad using chemical weapons
Iranian-backed Hezbollah smuggling massive amounts of cocaine into the US
In the meantime, many of the now-out-of-power Obama flunkies are hammering away against President Trump for his support of the freedom marchers,
Perpetually touting themselves as the champion of oppressed people everywhere, the Obama toadies have made their opinions known regarding President Trump and the Iranian freedom marchers: Shut up and leave the ayatollahs alone;
With humility about how little we know about what's happening inside Iran, this much is clear: it's an Iranian moment and not anyone else's. But the rights of people to protest peacefully and voice their aspirations are universal and governments everywhere should respect that.
The Iranian people are rightfully demanding dignity, less corruption, more opportunity, and greater control over their lives. In looking at US twitter, it seems lost on too many that this is about what Iranians want for Iran, and not about us.
While it’s glaringly obvious that the Obamabots are neck-deep in defending their ex-boss, that begs the question, why?
Could it be due to Obama’s showpiece of foreign policy is finally being exposed as collusion with the Iranian thugocracy? Even if it means success built on a foundation of the battered and bloody corpses of the Iranian freedom marchers.
For the eight long years of the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, George W. Bush was consistently hammered by both Obama and his ever-loyal Ministry of Propaganda (CNN, NY Times, NBC, etc) as either a bumbling fool with the intelligence (and mannerisms to match) of a baboon, or as some type of evil genius responsible for death, destruction and the shredding of civil liberties from the Euphrates River to Guantanamo Bay to Anytown, USA.
And the whole time Dubya kept his mouth shut. Every Obama failure… every Obama misstep… every time Obama embarrassed himself and this nation, the blame for reliably laid at the feet of the former Texas governor.
Instead of even a minimal defence of his presidency or even himself as a man, Bush remained silent to the Obama insults while he kept himself busy with long-distance bicycle rides with veterans or by painting portraits of the same vets he ordered to war.
Even when Obama ordered a unilateral withdrawal from Iraq in 2009, Bush remained silent.
Even with Iraqi cities and towns such as Fallujah, Mosul, Ramadi and Tikrit began falling to the radical Islamist jihadists of ISIS, Bush remained silent.
Even when it became painfully obvious to even the most partisan of political hacks that the over 4,000 dead and tens of thousands of wounded American kids who were fed into the meatgrinder was all in vain, Bush remained silent.
Even with the likes of the Battle of Fallujah, the Battle of Tikrit, etc, being written in American blood into the annals of the Marine Corps and the Army, Bush remained silent.
Fast forward to present day. Nine short months into the Trump presidency, George W. Bush has decided to speak up. Who does he attack? You guessed it – President Trump.
So what was Bush’s reward for defending globalism and never ending military intervention overseas?
The reliable mouthpieces of globalism and never ending military intervention overseas, The New Yorker and NPR have deigned to pronounce Dubya as an “elder statesman”.
Quite different from the branding of him as drooling mouth breather out to destroy the Constitution, and more than worthy of impeachment, huh?
In the polite world of diplomatic-speak, there is “no ill will” in a Donald Trump ordered directive that each and every Barack Obama politically appointed ambassador leave his or her post no later than Inauguration Day.
