OBAMA’S DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO AGENDA … I THOUGHT HE CONSIDERED WALL STREET EVIL?
What a fraud and hypocrite. Former president Barack Obama, the man who railed against the evils of Wall Street, now is accepting speaking appearances and the fees are ridiculous. Even as Obama is facing criticism for getting $400,000 for a speech to a Wall Street bank Cantor Fitzgerald, he pocketed the same amount of money for a second speech, with an A&E event. What a joke. Oh yeah, Obama is for the little guy and against the big banks and Wall Street firms. Sure he is. Hey Dems, how do you like your Obama now? He has decimated your party, resided over the loss of both the House, Senate, governorships and thousands of politicians in State Houses and now as a private citizen, does the very thing he said was evil. What happened to all that class warfare and the have and have-nots?
Even as President Obama faced criticism for getting $400,000 for a speech to a Wall Street bank, he pocketed the same amount of money for a second speech, The Post has learned.
Obama made another $400,000 on Thursday when he appeared at the A&E Networks advertising upfront at The Pierre Hotel. He was interviewed over 90 minutes at the Midtown Manhattan event by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in front of the cable network’s advertisers.
Obama says Show me the money!!!
Far left Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) says she is troubled by Barack Obama’s decision to accept $400,000 from a Wall Street firm to speak at a health care conference this fall.
“I was troubled by that,” she said.
That was the extent of her comments aimed directly at Obama. She quickly launched into a broader discussion of her views of the corrupting influence of money in Washington.
“I describe it as a snake that slithers through Washington. And that it shows up in so many different ways here in Washington,” she said, referencing her just-published book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”
“The influence of dollars on this place is what scares me,” she continued. “I think it ultimately threatens democracy.”
While Warren’s critique was a far cry from the withering criticism some on the left have leveled at Obama, it’s rougher than anything she said during the 2016 campaign about former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s acceptance of hefty speaking fees from Wall Street firms.
WHAT A SURPRISE, WHAT ELSE WOULD A COMMUNITY AGITATOR DO WHO CARES MORE ABOUT HIS LEGACY THAN THE US?
In an interview with Fox & Friends released Monday night, President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of being behind and responsible for some of the recent protests against him and Republicans. President Trump responded when asked whether Obama was responsible for organizing some of the recent political protests against him and other Republicans … “No, I think he is behind it. I also think it’s politics — that’s the way it is.” Would it really come as a surprise that behind the scenes Obama made every effort to derail the Trump presidency so to maintain any type of legacy? This is what Obama is, a community agitator.
So much for the peaceful transition of power and a former president giving the current one a chance to govern
President Donald Trump delivered a scathing accusation against former President Barack Obama in an interview released Monday night.
Trump was asked whether Obama was responsible for organizing some of the recent political protests against him and other Republicans — including the widely publicized demonstrations at GOP town-hall meetings.
“No, I think he is behind it,” Trump said in a preview of an interview with “Fox and Friends” released Monday night. “I also think it’s politics — that’s the way it is.”
“You never know what’s exactly happening behind the scenes,” Trump said. “You never know.”
Here is more of Trump’s quote on the question of protesters gathering around the US:
“No, I think that President Obama’s behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks … possibly come from that group … But I also understand that’s politics, and in terms of him being behind things, that’s politics, and it will probably continue.”
Fake Oscar: ‘La La Land’ Declared Best Picture in Major Acadamy Award Screw Up … ‘Moonlight’ Later Declared Winner
ITS CALLED KARMA BABY: MAYBE THE OSCARS SHOULD HAVE WORRIED MORE ABOUT GETTING THEIR SHOW CORRECT, RATHER THAN JUST BASHING TRUMP …
And the Academy award for Best Picture goes to
La La Land. Oops, I mean Moonlight. In what can only be described as the biggest screw up in Oscar’s history, The Academy Awards actually announced the wrong winner for the biggest award of the night. UNREAL. I have said for years, how do so many people put merit in a profession where all the individuals do is read off a dummy card and some one else’s work? In this case, they couldn’t even do that. Thus, for this colossal gaffe, the 89th Academy Awards will not be remembered for all of the anti-Trump liberal gibberish, it will be forever remembered for presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway declaring that “La La Land” had won during the evening’s final presentation, even though it had not.
And we are supposed to listen to this fools give us political advice and lecture us when they can’t even read a card or get something as simple as providing an envelop to some one properly? Hey lefty Hollywood, maybe the Russians switched the envelops.
In a moment that will go down as one of the strangest and most shocking in Oscar history, “Moonlight” was named Oscar winner for best picture only after “La La Land” was announced first.
The room was in disarray as they sorted out the error.
Here’s how it went down:
Co-presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were on stage to present the award. After listing the nominated films. Beatty opened the envelope and then paused for longer than usual. He looked around and over at Dunaway, who then announced “La La Land” had won.
Producers and cast members from “La La Land,” the candy-colored big-screen romantic musical about two artists striving to fulfill their dreams, made their way to the stage to celebrate. They had begun their thank yous when the mistake was caught.
“La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz interrupted the celebration, calling attention to the discrepancy on the winners card in his hand.
Before walking onstage to present the final award of the night, Faye Dunaway had a last-minute hair touch-up and Warren Beatty was in great spirits.
The atmosphere backstage was electric, and everything was going so well.
Until it wasn’t.
Within moments of Dunaway announcing La La Land as the Best Picture winner, it was clear something was awry.
“Oh my god, it’s Moonlight!” a stage manager said aloud, and into a headset, while starting to pace. “Oh my god! Oh my god!” As the seconds passed and the La La Land producers, Oscars aloft, were well into their acceptance speeches, the low-level confusion backstage turned into jaw-dropping disbelief.
“Oh my f—king God, it’s not La La Land, it’s Moonlight! He’s got the wrong envelope!” said someone from the production crew, hands on head in shock. “They read the wrong envelope!”
UNINFORMED AMERICA, LET’S HOPE THESE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO VOTE EITHER …
As reported at The Hill, 35% of Americans have no clue that Obamacare and the not-so Affordable Care Act are one in the same. How is that possible. The Times article bias tried to portray that people are confused between the two names for the same law, yet some how when we look at the numbers … among Republicans, a higher percentage of 72% said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same. The liberal bias Times would have you believe that the high percentage is a reflection of the party’s longstanding hostility to the law. Sorry Times, maybe it’s because they pay attention more and are more informed.
More than one-third of Americans are unaware that ObamaCare and the Affordable Care Act are the same law.
The figure comes from a new poll by Morning Consult that found 35 percent of Americans do not know ObamaCare is another label — made popular by the GOP — used to describe the Affordable Care Act, enacted under former President Barack Obama in 2010.
About 17 percent of Americans polled thought they were two different laws, and 18 percent said the didn’t know whether they were the same policy or two different things.
The New York Times published the results from the survey on Tuesday. Morning Consult conducted the survey in late January with a sample of 1,890 adults.
The bias analysis of the polling data courtesy of the NY Times:
Sorry Libs, it’s not a matter of confusion, this is a matter of a voter electorate being willfully and woefully uninformed. When one side of the political spectrum is so uninformed regarding what was supposed to be Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, their is a problem and it has nothing to do with confusion. However, ask those same Obamacare-ACA challenged people who the Kardashian’s are and the number skyrockets.
This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.
In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.
Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.
This confusion may affect the public debate over health care policy. If many people think repealing Obamacare would not affect the popular provisions of the A.C.A., they might not understand the potential consequences of the proposals being considered in Washington.
GOING, DOING, GONE!!!
It’s the moment many of us have been waiting for 8 years … the long national nightmare is over, Happy Days are Here Again!!! Barack and Michelle Obama depart Washington, DC on
Marine One Executive One.
