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.
President Trump Rescinds DACA that was Effectuated under the Obama Administration Unconstitutionally … President Gives Congress 6 Months to Do Thier Job
DACA RESCINDED … TRUMP GIVES CONGRESS 6 MONTHS TO ACT AND DO THEIR JOB.
Yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions did his job and correctly rescinded the DACA program. No matter how you feel about the DACA program and so called “Dreamers,” DACA was was Unconstitutional. The United States is a country of laws and if we have presidents who flaunt the Constitution, as Barack Obama did, what is the point. If Trump did not end DACA, it would have been in the courts, as the executive branch does not have the right to bypass the legislative branch and make laws. Obama knew this, and even said so when president, then turned around and created DACA. Democrats and the LEFT can try and play politics with this, as they usually do, but in reality, Trump did the smart thing. Trump eliminated an Unconstitutional program and forwarded it to the U.S. Congress where such laws are supposed to be created. In is now on Congress to do their job.
This policy was implemented unilaterally to great controversy and legal concern after Congress rejected legislative proposals to extend similar benefits on numerous occasions to this same group of illegal aliens.
In other words, the executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.
As the Attorney General, it is my duty to ensure that the laws of the United States are enforced and that the Constitutional order is upheld.
In June of 2012, President Obama bypassed Congress to give work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36. The typical recipients of this executive amnesty, known as DACA, are in their twenties. Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time.
In referencing the idea of creating new immigration rules unilaterally, President Obama admitted that “I can’t just do these things by myself” – and yet that is exactly what he did, making an end-run around Congress and violating the core tenets that sustain our Republic.
Officials from 10 States are suing over the program, requiring my Administration to make a decision regarding its legality. The Attorney General of the United States, the Attorneys General of many states, and virtually all other top legal experts have advised that the program is unlawful and unconstitutional and cannot be successfully defended in court.
There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will.
The temporary implementation of DACA by the Obama Administration, after Congress repeatedly rejected this amnesty-first approach, also helped spur a humanitarian crisis – the massive surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America including, in some cases, young people who would become members of violent gangs throughout our country, such as MS-13.
Only by the reliable enforcement of immigration law can we produce safe communities, a robust middle class, and economic fairness for all Americans.
Therefore, in the best interests of our country, and in keeping with the obligations of my office, the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption. While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today. Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration. This is a gradual process, not a sudden phase out. Permits will not begin to expire for another six months, and will remain active for up to 24 months. Thus, in effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.
ONCE AGAIN WE ARE WITNESS TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DOING NOTHING AGAINST A FOREIGN THREAT …
As reported at The Politico, in 2014, the Barack Obama administration got a report of Russia’s intention to disrupt Western democracies, including the United States. So why would the Obama administration act so surprised when Russians did try to disrupt the elections? They knew all along and did nothing. Yet, you will hear from the Obama sycophants and apologists that they did. Hmm, how did that work out? They didn’t seem to want to make waves because Hillary Clinton was going to win. Then, Trump stuns her in the 2016 presidential election and all of the Russian conspiracy and collusion is pointed at him. Yet it was under Obama, that nothing was done to prevent such interference. Where was the transparency in all this? It was just another example of failure during the eight years of Barack Obama.
The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials.
As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar with it, included a quote from the Russian source telling U.S. officials in Moscow, “You have no idea how extensive these networks are in Europe … and in the U.S., Russia has penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places.”
That report was circulated among the National Security Council, intelligence agencies, and the State Department via secure email and cable in the spring of 2014 as part of a larger assessment of Russian intentions in Ukraine, the official said.
There was no explicit warning of a threat to U.S. elections, but the official said some diplomats and national-security officials in Moscow felt the administration was too quick to dismiss the possibility that the Kremlin incursions could reach the United States.
Ned Price, a former spokesperson for the National Security Council, rejected the idea that the administration failed to heed warnings about Russian interference in the U.S. political system or Russian cyberespionage in general.
“The Obama administration was nothing but proactive in responding to Russian aggression in all of its forms, especially as Moscow became more brazen with and following its military moves against Ukraine beginning in 2014,” Price said, citing sanctions and increased American support to NATO as evidence of the former administration’s seriousness.
But subsequent events — including Russia’s interference in the American election through hacks of the emails of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, among other intrusions identified by U.S. intelligence — have left many in the former administration wondering if they could have done more.
“People have criticized us … for not coming out more forcefully and saying it,” former CIA Director John Brennan said at the Aspen National Forum in July. “There was no playbook for this.”
It all goes back to President Obama’s meeting with outgoing Russian President Medevev when he was caught on an open mike stating of his ability to deal with relations between the U.S. and Russia, saying he would have more flexibility after the election. Who was colluding with Russia?
August 4th in Illinois will now be known as “Barack Obama Day.” Imagine that. Just as Barack Obama was provided a Nobel Peace Prize having accomplished nothing to deserve it, the Obamamessiah is now being given his own state holiday in Illinois. It was stated that the “day 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.”Seriously? What exactly did he do for the American people, Obamacare? As Red State opines, Barack Obama Day will be like “Festivus.” Has there ever been a president who has done less, who has had for fan fare than Obama?
And his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, was nothing more than an intentional lie and failure. Obama escalated the National debt to unsustainable limits. He left the Middle East a powder keg, as Syria and Libya fell into disarray. Let us not forget the Iranian nuclear deal. A day of celebration? What’s next, a National holiday, Mount Rushmore?
Former President Barack Obama got a special treat for his birthday this year – his very own holiday.
Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law Friday a measure to designate Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” across Illinois.
The newest state holiday will be celebrated each year on the 44th president’s birthday, beginning in 2018.
The holiday will be “observed throughout the State as a day 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 reads.
While several lawmakers abstained from voting on the measure, it passed both houses earlier this year without a single vote against.
Honestly, what did Barack Obama do for Illinois? Other than being the first black president, where instead of bringing America together like a Nelson Mandella, he decided to fragment it even further. Don’t ask the people of Chicago about the accomplishments of Obama. Chicago was ignored by Obama and became a “killing field” during the 8 years of Barack. Nearly 4,000 people have been murdered in President Barack Obama’s adopted city during his presidency.
To some Chicago community organizers and activists — the very role in which Obama sowed his own political seeds — the president’s track record is more mixed.
They laud the president and First Lady Michelle Obama for setting an example as role models for young African-Americans, but lament that Obama didn’t do more to tip the scales of inequality they see in city schools that lack proper resources and in Chicago neighborhoods void of economic opportunity.
“I think Barack Obama has ignored the black community for eight years, and now he’s coming to take a bow in Chicago while our neighborhoods are suffering from disinvestment and soaring unemployment,” said Ja’Mal Green, who rose to Chicago prominence among a group of young activists who decried police misconduct following the release of the Laquan McDonald police shooting video.
“We are seeing young black men getting gunned down at a horrific rate,” Green said, “and he has shown no willingness to seriously address these issues.”
U.S. Senate Blocks Republican Health Bill in Midnight Vote, 3 GOP Senators Vote against (Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, John McCain)
SENATE FAIL … ATTEMPTS TO REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE FAILS, A POX ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES!!!
Overnight, the U.S. Senate blocked the latest attempt by the GOP to repeal Obamacare. The so-called Skinny repeal failed by one vote as three Republican Senators voted “no” to the bill. And just who were the three GOP lawmakers who blocked the bill? It was RINO’s Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona in a 49-51 vote. UNREAL. Gee McCain, we are just so glad you returned to act a Judas. You should have stayed home. Don’t ever lecture us again, just go home and retire. Once again, McCain shows he would rather side with Democrats, than his own party and fulfill his promise to replace and replace Obamacare. Good riddance. RINO and liar Sen. Murkowski stated that she would not be pressured by President Trump. Hmm, how about pressured by what you told fellow Alaskans in your promise to repeal Obamacare (VIDEO)? Because God forbid these power hungry politicians tell the truth and not lie to get elected.
SENATE FAILURE … YOU FAILED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!
A months-long effort by Senate Republicans to pass health legislation collapsed early Friday after GOP Senator John McCain joined two of his colleagues to block a stripped-down Obamacare repeal bill.
“I regret that our efforts were simply not enough, this time,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor after the vote. “This is clearly a disappointing moment.”
“It’s time to move on,” he added after pulling the bill from the floor.
The decision by McCain to vote no came after weeks of brinkmanship and after his dramatic return from cancer treatment to cast the 50th vote to start debate on the bill earlier this week. The GOP’s ‘skinny’ repeal bill was defeated 49-51, falling just short of the 50 votes needed to advance it. Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski also voted against it.
It wasn’t immediately clear what the next steps would be for the Republicans. The repeal effort had appeared to collapse several times before, only to be revived. And several Republicans pleaded for their colleagues not to give up, even as President Donald Trump blasted the vote.
After 7 years of bitching and moaning about Obamacare and claiming they would repeal or repeal and replace Obamacare, in the end, it was all a lie. In 7 years the Republicans had no solutions, just lies to get reelected. All of you should be ashamed and the GOP leadership should step down and make room for individuals who can lead. As for the GOP Senators who broke their word to the American people that you would repeal it to get elected, you need to be primary challenged and thrown out of office. To the Democrats who sat on their hands and cheered as as if Obamacare is some great thing for the American people, you need to be voted out of office immediately. It is too bad that President Trump actually bought into the GOP swamps lies. Following the Skinny repeal fail Trump tweeted at 2:25 am Washington time: “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down, As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!” And implode it will as it is already in the process of doing so.
