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.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Cannot Answer Question When Asked “Who Is The Leader Of The Democratic Party?” (VIDEO)
SHE COULD NOT ANSWER BECAUSE THERE IS NO LEADER OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, ITS A RUDDERLESS SHIP …
How can it be that asking the question, who is the leader of the Democrat party be so difficult to answer? Such was the case for Nancy Pelosi when posed the question. Surprisingly, San Fran Nan could not even name herself. After all, she is the House Minority leader. In an attempt to answer this trick, gotcha question (sarcasm intended) she named former president Barack Obama, the man who lost the House, Senate, Governorships and state houses during his eight years and Hillary Clinton, the individual who lost a presidential election to a so-called unelectable opponent. The correct answer, there are no leaders. The Democrat party is in chaos with no direction, as the far LEFT socialist Bernie Sanders wing of the party battles the establishment.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who regularly alternates ‘least popular Congressional leader’ championships with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — was asked by Anderson Cooper about the state of the Democratic Party. Who is its leader, the host asked, indirectly referencing the reality that voters have relegated Democrats to minority status virtually everywhere but a small handful of states. The first two names to pop into Pelosi’s mind were an ex-president who decimated the party over his tenure in office, and a failed presidential candidate who managed to lose to an allegedly unelectable opponent. Plus there are some other people, and stuff:
Flashback: Obama Mocks Trump For Suggesting He Can Bring Jobs Back … Guess What 235,000 Jobs Created in First Month of Trump Presidency
REMEMBER WHEN THIS FOOLISH PRESIDENT MOCKED TRUMP ABOUT CREATING JOBS?
Remember during the 2016 presidential campaign when Barack Obama mocked candidate Donald Trump for his ability to bring jobs back and create them. Like everything during the Obama years, it was all one big joke, made by Obama who could have cared less to have America employed or help the hard working men and women of America find a good paying job. Obama mocked Trump by saying, did he have a magic wand. Hmm, I guess Trump did have a magic wand and an answer. You Obama, had none.
Take a look at the ADP jobs numbers for February where 295,000 were created and the government jobs number of 235,000 jobs created. It would appear that President Trump knows exactly what he is doing and Obama did not have a clue. Obama wanted America to get used to no jobs growth stating that’s just the way it is and President Trump wants to Make America Great Again!!!
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.”
CAN SOME ONE PLEASE TAKE HIS CELL PHONE AND PEN AWAY …
Lame Duck Barack Obama has transferred out four more terrorists out of GITMO on his way out the door. Nineteen inmates have been transferred since Election Day. This now leaves 41 terrorists at the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. So in the end, thankfully, Obama was never able to close GITMO as he promised back in 2008.
The Pentagon announced Thursday that four more inmates were transferred out of the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, marking the final such transfer under President Barack Obama and leaving the facility’s population at 41.
Thursday’s transfer concludes the Obama administration’s final push to empty the facility as much as possible prior to Friday’s inauguration, with 19 inmates being transferred since Election Day. One of the inmates is going to Saudi Arabia and the other three are being taken in by the United Arab Emirates.
There were 242 detainees at Guantanamo when Obama came into office in January 2009 and he had pledged to close the controversial center within one year in an executive order he signed shortly after his own inauguration. But in recent days, administration officials have acknowledged that this goal was out of reach.
“I don’t anticipate that we will succeed in that goal of closing the prison, but it’s not for a lack of trying — that, I assure you,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Tuesday.
