President Donald Trump Dismantles More of Obama’s Legacy … “I am Cancelling Obama’s One-Sided Deal with Cuba!” (VIDEO)
THE DISMANTLING OF OBAMA’S DISASTROUS 8 YEARS …
Yesterday, President Donald Trump spoke in Little Havana in Miami, Florida and told the crowd of Cuban ex-pats that he would be cancelling and making changes to the Obama-era Cuba policy and is challenging the Cuban government to negotiate a better deal. Trump told the audience that he would be canceling Obama’s one-sided deal with the Cuban government. You can remember that Obama’s change in policy with Cuba was met with bipartisan opposition. In essence, this one-sided deal looks rather similar to the Iran nuclear deal where one just scratches their head and wonders how a sitting US president negotiated such a deal in the so-called best interest of the United States.
The Cuban government said that President Trump’s speech was ‘loaded with hostile rhetoric’. GOOD!!! That is what it was intended to be. Note to the liberal MSM, Cuba is a socialist and Communist government. Do you think we care what they think? The days of the like of Obama appeasing socialist and communists are over. The days of one-sides agreements that do not benefit America are over! That is what the election of 2016 was about.
Donald trump’s full speech on Cuba can bee seen below.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says on CNN’s State of the Union … Calls for Investigation into Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions After Comey Testimony in Regards to the Clinton Email Scandal
Via RedState, in a interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions that came out during former FBI directors testimony last Thursday to the Senate. Comey testified that Lynch improperly injected politics into the investigation. Comey was told to call the FBI criminal investigation a matter. However, in that case, Comey had no issue doing exactly what the AG told him to do and provided cover for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Although now he claims it gave him a queasy feeling.
It’s not every day the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee says a political appointee of the same party needs to be investigated. But that’s exactly what Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) said on Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN of former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions in regards to the Clinton email scandal.
“I think we need to know more about that,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) on Sunday’s episode of State of the Union. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”
Feinstein’s comment comes in the wake of fired F.B.I. Director James Comey’s testimony last week in which he claimed Lynch — who herself created a firestorm when she made a visit to allegedly chitchat with Bill Clinton on the tarmac during the 2016 campaign — told him to call the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of email as Secretary of State a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”

From The Liar in Chief: Barack Obama urges ‘Political Courage’ to save Un-Affordable Care Act & His Legacy
THE AUDACITY OF A LIAR!!!
Last night, Barack Obama called for members of Congress not to repeal his dismal and failed legacy as he called on them to exercise “political courage.” REALLY, political courage? You mean the political courage it took Obama to lie to the American people to get his failed healthcare law passed? You all remember that you would be able to keep your doctor and health insurance coverage if you wanted to. You remember that it would lower insurance premiums. How did that work our for you America? You mean it takes political courage to lie? Because America, that is what Obama and Democrats did to pass Obamacare. Don’t buy the lies. Obamacare is doomed to failure and would collapse upon itself had nothing been done.
Politifact Lie of the Year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’
OBAMA LIES … IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTHCARE PLAN YOU CAN KEEP IT
Barack Obama on Sunday night called on members of Congress to exercise the “political courage” to not repeal Obamacare — his first public comments about the law since the House voted to repeal it on Thursday, and a rare entry into the current political debate since leaving office.
“I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right,” Obama said, in a speech here at the John F. Kennedy Library accepting the Profiles in Courage award in honor of what would have been Kennedy’s 100th birthday.
“I expect to be busy, if not with a second career, at least a second act,” Obama said, promising more involvement.
Citing those who lost their seats after voting for the healthcare law in 2010, Obama described his “fervent hope” that current members “recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential — but it takes some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm, those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”
Obama: We will lower your premiums $2500 per family per year
Now the Democrat talking point lie is that Obamacare gave 21 million people healthcare coverage. Hmm, how many of those people had insurance coverage they liked and were forced off it and forced on to Obamacare?
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.
Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice Declines to Testify Before Senate Subcommittee
OF COURSE SUSAN RICE HAD NO PROBLEM GOING ON CNN AND DISCUSSING THE ISSUES …
As reported at Politico, Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan. SERIOUSLY? If the allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes is absolutely false, then why is former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice ducking the U.S. Senate subcommittee? Me thinks you have much to hide. Honestly, how does Susan Rice think that declining the request to testify on Russian hacking not make her look guilty as sin? So much for the most transparent administration ever.
Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan.
Rice’s decision to decline the invitation to testify on Russia’s election meddling came in a letter from her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).
The letter, first reported by CNN, notes that the invitation to testify came only from Graham and that Whitehouse “has informed us by letter that he did not agree to” the request, which Ruemmler calls “a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses.”
“Moreover,” Ruemmler writes, “Chairman Graham’s invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness.”
The Judiciary subcommittee is holding a hearing next Monday that will feature testimony from former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice had no prob;em going on the lap dog media to discuss the issues but then declines to testify for a Senate subcommittee on Russian hacking. Watch the video below of the liberal MSM trying to defend the unmasking of names. So it is ok to go on the friendly bias MSM, but hell no to Senate where she would be sworn in.
MY PERSONAL BELIEF IS THAT ALL GOVERNMENT PENSIONS EXCEPT THOSE IN MILITARY SHOULD BE DONE AWAY WITH, INCLUDING CONGRESS …
Following Barack Obama’s $400,000 speech, Congress may pass legislation to cap presidential pensions. A bill like this had been previously introduced in 2016 in the House by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and in the Senate by Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa. However, with no opposition last year in the Senate or House or threat of presidential veto, at the last minute Obama vetoed the bill. Imagine that. Talk about self-serving. Why would Obama have vetoed such a bill? Hopefully this will pass the Congress once again and President Trump will sign it. If not, the American tax payers will be providing a pension to a billionaire by law.
Of course Congress should pass a similar bill on themselves as well.
And I am still bleeding the tax payer …
Last year, then-president Barack Obama vetoed a bill that would have curbed the pensions of former presidents if they took outside income of $400,000 or more.
So now that former president Barack Obama has decided to accept $400,000 for an upcoming Wall Street speech, the sponsors of that bill say they’ll reintroduce that bill in hopes that President Trump will sign it.
“The Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and sponsor of the 2016 bill. “His veto was very self-serving.”
Chaffetz and Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, the sponsor of the companion Senate bill, say they will re-introduce the Presidential Allowance Modernization Act this month. The bill would cap presidential pensions at $200,000, with another $200,000 for expenses. But those payments would be reduced dollar-for-dollar once their outside income exceeds $400,000.
The issue isn’t a partisan one — or at least, it wasn’t last year. The bill passed both the House and Senate with no opposition, and no veto threat had come from the White House.
So when Obama’s veto came one Friday night last July — on the last day for him to sign or veto the legislation — it took lawmakers by surprise. It was the 11th of Obama’s 12 vetoes.
My personal belief is that all pensions should be done away with, except for the men and woman of our military. It is a means of payment that is long since obsolete. If presidents want to go on the speaking tour and some company is ignorant enough to pay $400K, so be it. However, the American people should never have to foot the bill of a pension of millionaires. That goes for Congress also. These positions were never intended to be a full time job forever. That is never what The Founders envisioned.
“The basic premise here is, if they want to go fishing in Utah for the rest of their lives, they can do that. They will be well compensated for the rest of their lives,” Chaffetz said. “If they’re going to make millions of dollars, the taxpayers shouldn’t have to subsidize them.”
Why are the American people paying pensions to millionaires? Who honestly thinks this makes any sense, no matter what political party the former president belongs to. Who thinks the Bush’s are hurting for money? How about the Clinton’s?
Under the Former Presidents Act, the nation’s five living former presidents — Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama — get a pension equal to the salary of a current cabinet secretary: $207,800 in 2017. They also get $150,000 to pay staff, and “suitable office space, appropriately furnished and equipped.”
In 2015, the entire benefit package ranged from $430,000 for Carter to $1.1 million for George W. Bush.
With Obama joining the club as of Jan. 20, the 2017 spending bill approved by the House Wednesday contained nearly $3.9 million for all the former presidents through Sept. 30 — a $588,000 annual increase.
