MIGHTY BIG TALK FROM A NO TERM PRESIDENT …
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (S) said on Wednesday that he doesn’t believe President Donald Trump will win a second term as president. Really? Aren’t these the same people that said Donald Trump would never be elected? Also Bernie, its not like you will ever be elected president. Let’s get one thing straight folks, Bernie Sanders is not an Independent. Sanders is a socialist who ran on the Democrat ticket and nearly defeated Hillary Clinton to be the nominee for president of the Democrat Party. Don’t think the American people, and especially real independents, don’t see the fact that Democrats have obstructed the Trump administration at every turn and see thee liberal MSM playing their typical bias games and reporting. Sanders stated, “In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling.” Hmm, just a reminder to Sanders and the LEFT, wasn’t the polling wrong prior to Trump being elected president?
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Wednesday said he doesn’t believe President Trump will win a second term as president.
“In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling,” Sanders told The Associated Press while speaking in New York. “I do not believe that if Trump continues these policies that he’s going to be reelected. Nor do I think that the Republicans are going to do well in 2018.”
Sanders, who is planning to launch a cross-country tour with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez next week, said a more progressive movement is underway that will hurt Republicans’ electoral chances.
“The momentum right now is with the progressive movement in this country,” Sanders said. “And I think the Republicans are on the defensive and will be on the defensive increasingly.”
Sanders pointed to Tuesday’s special election in Kansas, in which the Republican candidate narrowly won the House seat vacated by now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a deep-red district that Trump won overwhelmingly.
Keep up your games liberals and once again you will find yourself in another losing election. You still do not understand the connection between Donald Trump and the voters. Frankly, it is kind of comical to see the LEFT acting in the same manner and thinking they will get different results. Wait, isn’t that the definition of crazy?
Susan Rice Unmasked … Former Obama National Security Advisor Requested to Unmask Names of Trump Transition Officials
OKAY MSM, YOU HAVE YOUR WATERGATE. NOW INVESTIGATE AND REPORT ON IT ….
FOX News is reporting that it was Susan Rice, former national security adviser under then-President Barack Obama, who requested the unmasking of Trump official names from surveillance transcripts. We have been told that the surveillance had nothing to do with Russia. So why then would such a request be made to pierce the veil of privacy? As state by Rush Limbaugh, the Obama administration weaponized intelligence for use against Trump. This is what a police state looks like America. Yes, this is far worse than Watergate.
Multiple sources tell Fox News that Susan Rice, former national securityadviser under then-President Barack Obama, requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials caught up in surveillance.
The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan – essentially, the officials at the top, including former Rice deputy Ben Rhodes.
The names were part of incidental electronic surveillance of candidate and President-elect Trump and people close to him, including family members, for up to a year before he took office.
It was not clear how Rice knew to ask for the names to be unmasked, but the question was being posed by the sources late Monday.
“What I know is this … If the intelligence community professionals decide that there’s some value, national security, foreign policy or otherwise in unmasking someone, they will grant those requests,” former Obama State Department spokeswoman and Fox News contributor Marie Harf told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on “The First 100 Days. “And we have seen no evidence … that there was partisan political notice behind this and we can’t say that unless there’s actual evidence to back that up.”
A NOTE TO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP … THE FREEDOM CAUCUS DID YOU AND YOUR PRESIDENCY A FAVOR.
Yesterday, President Donald Trump went to Twitter and called out the Freedom caucus and made a vale treat if they don’t get on board with the team. Really Mr. President, you are going to fight them? What does that mean, you are going to fight me too and the millions of Conservatives who voted for you in 2016? Honestly Mr. President, they did you a favor and probably saved your presidency. You ran on “REPEAL AND REPLACE” Obamacare. The Paul Ryan “establishment” healthcare plan was not a repeal, it was RINO-care, replacement in name only.
In the future I will be posting an open letter to President Trump regarding this matter that will be sent to him directly.
Since when does Donald Trump go along with the establishment Republicans like Rep. Paul Ryan? For if that is what you decide to do and stab conservatives in the back, you will be looking at a one term failed presidency. You have the ability to make major changes and fix the ills of the last 8 yeas of Obama. That is what you promised, DO IT!!! Repeal and replace Obamacare was not checking an item off a check list, it was meant to lower premiums and provide a market based, capitalist solution. I would have voted against the GOP version of the healthcare bill. It actually disgusts me that the GOP had 8 years to come up with a solution and all they had was establishment Ryancare. Heaven forbid politicians actually stand for something and principles. Don’t ever forget what got you elected President Trump and who your base is.
President Donald Trump has gone public with his war against the House Freedom Caucus, pushing into full view growing frustration shared by House Speaker Paul Ryan less than a week after the GOP health care bill crashed amid feuding between rival Republican factions.
Trump targeted conservative House members within his own party in a tweet Thursday morning that told his supporters “we must fight” the House Freedom Caucus as well as Democrats next year.
“The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!” Trump tweeted.
Get one thing straight President Trump, you were elected as an element of change, not to water down Democrat ideology. It was not Democrats that stood for hours in Nashville, Tennessee only to not get in as 10,000 people were unable to get in and see you. It is the Democrats that look to destroy and impeach you before you have even started. It is Democrats who look to block your Supreme Court justice nominee. Those who are deplorables are hardly Democrats, they are Conservatives who want change and voted for you for that change.
HMM, IS THIS AN ADMISSION THAT THE DNC DID COLLUDE AND FAVOR HILLARY OVER BERNIE?
As reported at NBC News, the “embattled” DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers dated by at least April 15, 2017. There usually is mass turnover following a presidential election, but nothing like this. This extreme house cleaning is a result of the DNC’s failures in losing to Trump, failing to gain back the House and Senate and the hacked emails that came to light showing that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. Is this a bone thrown to the far LEFT Sanders’ voters and a sign that the Dems are going to go even farther left?
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.
A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future. [...]
It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.
The grueling experience, which followed years in which many Democrats felt the Obama White House ignored the party organization, has left the DNC with a crisis of confidence and competence.
Powerline asks why NBS News, a perennial shill for the Democrat party would use the word “embattled?”
That is the great unspoken fact of American politics. Conservatives are hard on the Republican Party–we often denounce our party’s leaders as inept, or worse. But in fact, the Republican Party is riding a wave of historic success. It is the Democrats who are sliding downhill toward oblivion, if present trends continue. Has any major political party in any country ever had such an unsympathetic set of leaders as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton? Not that I know of.
Hence the “embattled” status of the Democratic National Committee. It will take a lot more than a few staff changes to alter the fortunes of the Democratic Party, but NBC offers no evidence that any major rethinking is in progress. On the contrary.
The view that the Democrats’ problem is that they haven’t moved far enough to the Left is not widely held among objective observers, but it apparently seems plausible to NBC. Watch for the Democrats’ downhill slide to continue.
HASN’T HE DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE … SHOULD SOME ONE INFORM OBAMA THAT IT WAS HE WHO DESTROYED THE DEMOCRAT PARTY?
According to The Politico, Barack Obama is retooling hos political operations and PAC’s in order to salvage his legacy and supposedly rebuild the Democrat party. The electoral college landslide victory by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race over Hillary Clinton was a repudiation of Obama and his policies for the last 8 years. Americans finally stood up and said, no more, enough is enough. However, Obama does not seem to have gotten that memo. Maybe its on Hillary’s private server. However, in order to save his legacy, Obama will not go gentle into that good night as most every other preceding president. Instead, the presidency of “I and me” will look to retool his PAC’s to make it once again about him. However, truth be told, it was Obama and his my way or the highway liberal LEFT agenda what decimated the Democrat party in the last eight years where they find themselves in the minority in the House, the Senate, the Governorship’s and the state houses. Oh yeah, and the lost the White House too.
This is what happens when an unqualified individual who is nothing more than a community agitator, a liberal ideologue and who has no respect for the Constitution or We the People operates like a king instead of a president and thinks he can just do everything as he wishes. It is called a failed presidency.
Barack Obama doesn’t want his post-presidency to be all about Donald Trump, but he knows some of it’s going to have to be.
Trump’s win upended his plans for life after leaving office, and people who’ve been talking to him say he’s been quietly sorting out how to honor the tradition of withholding criticism of his successor as he also considers how best to salvage his legacy and rebuild his party.
“The way he views his role is not that he himself, Barack Obama, is going to be out there giving fiery speeches and leading marches, but he wants to play a role in empower and lifting up the next generation of leaders,” said Jen Psaki, his White House communications director and an alum of both his presidential campaigns.
Already, former aides are revamping Organizing for Action, the group formed out of his old campaign structure. No longer about backing up Obama’s agenda in the White House, it will be a nexus for training activists and candidate recruitment, reshaped both by Trump’s win and some of the factors that contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss.
