LET’S HOPE SO, THAT’S WHY HE WAS ELECTED …
A Tale of Two Presidents: Why is President Donald J. Trump so reviled by the LEFT, Democrats, MSM and Progressives? Is it because of his brash, harsh tweets, his take no prisoners attitude, his say what he damn well feels like it to the media or his just mere presence? Well yes of course. But the real reason is Trump is undoing the Obama years piece by piece. The Progressive dream is being dismantled. To the LEFT’s horror, the global warming and illegal immigration are on the top of the hit list. Whine as the LEFT and Never-Trumpers’ try and lie that Trump is somehow like Stalin, Hitler, or Mussolini, it was in fact Barack Hussein Obama who was the one who weaponized the FBI, IRS, DOJ and EPA against his enemies. Not Trump. All Trump is doing is undoing the past 8 years of Obama and “Making America Great Again” to the reality of a stock market that crossed a record 26K today.
Obama, waiving goodbye to his legacy
Yet one way of understanding Trump — particularly the momentum of his first year — is through recollection of the last eight years of the Obama administration. In reductionist terms, Trump is the un-Obama. Surprisingly, that is saying quite a lot more than simple reductive negativism. Republicans have not seriously attempted to roll back the administrative state since Reagan. On key issues of climate change, entitlements, illegal immigration, government spending, and globalization, it was sometimes hard to distinguish a Bush initiative from a Clinton policy or a McCain bill from a Biden proposal. There was often a reluctant acceptance of the seemingly inevitable march to the European-style socialist administrative state.
Even his critics sometimes concede that his economic and foreign-policy agendas are bringing dividends. In some sense, it is not so much because of innovative policy, but rather that he is simply bullying his way back to basics we’ve forgotten over the past decades.
The wonder was never how to grow the economy at 3 percent (all presidents prior to 2009 had at one time or another done just that), but rather, contrary to “expert” economic opinion, how to discover ways to prevent that organic occurrence.
Obama was the first modern president who apparently figured out how. It took the efforts of a 24/7 redistributionist agenda of tax increases, federalizing health care, massive new debt, layers of more regulation, zero-interest rates, neo-socialist regulatory appointments, expansionary eligibility for entitlements, and constant anti-free-market jawboning that created a psychological atmosphere conducive to real retrenchment, mental holding patterns, and legitimate fears over discernable success. Obama weaponized federal agencies including the IRS, DOJ, and EPA in such a manner as to worry anyone successful, prominent, and conservative enough to come under the federal radar of a vindictive Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, or a FISA court.
Trump has sought to undo all that, point by point. The initial result so far is not rocket science, but rather a natural expression of what happens when millions of Americans believe they have greater freedom and safety to profit and innovate, and trust they will not be punished, materially or psychologically, for the ensuing successful results. The radical upsurge in business and consumer confidence is not revolutionary but almost natural. The Left and Never Trump Right claim that Trump is Stalin, Hitler, or Mussolini. In fact, for the first time in eight years, it is highly unlikely that the FBI, IRS, CIA, DOJ, and other alphabet-soup agencies see their tasks as going after the president’s perceived opponents.
FLASHBACK: That Time Obama Called Libya A ‘S**t Show’ …
The MSM, LEFT and Democrats go ballistic when President Donald Trump reportedly said why are immigrants coming from “sh#t hole” countries. Something that Trump has since denied. However, where was the LEFT and the media when their hero Barack Obama made similar comments?
From The Daily Caller … According to the Atlantic:
“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion — which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.
Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.
HEY AMERICA, BARACK OBAMA JUST CALLED MANY OF YOU DEPLORABLES AGAIN …
The Community agitator is back … Just when you thought you were save from the eight nightmare, divisive years of Barack Obama, he’s back. As reported at Fox News, the former President Barack Obama resurfaced on Friday and took a shot at Fox News viewers, saying they’re “living on a different planet” than people who consume mainstream media. One can look at this two ways, one; how Obama intended his negative and derisive words and two; thank God we care to be more enlightened and not sheeple listening to the bias, fake news liberal-Democrat media complex. So the former “Divider in Chief” Obama now does not insult Fox News, but its viewers? REALLY? Heaven forbid anyone have a differing opinion than the LEFT. In the case of Fox News, actually care enough to actually do some investigative journalism into what really went on during the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton years? Add John Solomon at The Hill in as well and Sara Carter. Imagine what would have happened to your presidency had the liberal MSM done their job and investigated your Russian collusion with the Uranium One deal, Hillary Clinton’s private email servers and national security issues, illegal use of the NSA to spy on your enemies, the weaponize of the IRS against Obama enemies and the phony Steele dossiers used for FISA warrants, etc.
Hey Obama, who is it that is living in a fantasy world? It’s time to get off the unicorn. As we have learned, the president who claimed he was going to have the most transparent president, was hardly that.
Sean Hannity & Gingrich discuss Obma’s somments
Former President Barack Obama resurfaced on Friday and took a shot at Fox News viewers, saying they’re “living on a different planet” than people who consume mainstream media.
Obama made the remarks on the premiere of the new monthly Netflix series “My next guest needs no introduction with David Letterman,” which hit the streaming service on Friday morning. Early in the episode, Obama asked Letterman about his retirement but the veteran talk show host quickly let the former president know who was boss.
“Now here’s how this is gonna work. I’m gonna ask you stuff, and then you respond to stuff,” Letterman joked.
Letterman then asked Obama what he considers the more dangerous threat to a democracy, the president demeaning the press or a foreign power sabotaging the voting process. Both options are clearly jabs at President Trump and Obama answered without mentioning the current president’s name.
“One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” Obama said. “If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”
WHAT’S THE MATTER BARACK, IS THE INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN COLLUSION, THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL, ILLEGAL FISA WARRANTS, SPYING ON AMERICANS GETTING TOO CLOSE?
Barack Obama enjoyed the pleasure of 95% of the media covering for him, rather than doing their job and being a watch guard against government for the American people. Now Obama would actually attack the very few who dared to not stick their heads in the sane and blindly follow and protect him.
The Ingraham Angle 12/14/17: Obama and Clinton Loyalists in FBI & DOJ Need to Be Fired and Arrested (VIDEO)
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE FBI AND DOJ BECOME POLITICALLY WEAPONIZED …
You really need to listen to this, what happens when those who investigate need to be investigated? We are now beginning to understand what they meant by having an “insurance policy” against a Trump election.
A TALE OF TWO ECONOMIES …
The comparison of the Donald Trump and Barack Obama economies can best be describes like a Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Guess which one was which? Just look at the color codes numbers below that compare November of 2016 under Obama and November of 2017 under President Donald Trump. Even partisan Democrats can compare these numbers. Ever wonder why the liberal, bias media does not want to tout Trump’s accomplishments and continuously report on a Russian collusion story that does not exist? Because Americans are back to work, including Blacks and Hispanics. Under Obama in Nov. 2016. Black unemployment was at 8.1% and for Hispanics 5.7%. However, under Trump in Nov. 2017, Black unemployment is down to 7.3% and Hispanics at 4.1%. In Nov. 2017, manufacturing unemployment rate fell to a record low under Trump. The manufacturing sector added 31,000 jobs, while its unemployment rate fell to a record-low 2.6%. Under Obama, he claimed the manufacturing jobs were gone for good and many were lost on his watch.
For Barack Obama, he was the Food Stamp president. Donald Trump is the economic recovery president. Add the Stock market president too. The DOW is currently at 24,329.16. Remember when the foolish LEFT said on election night that the Stock market was going to crash because of a Trump election? How did that work out?
