President Barack Obama Speech on the President-Elect Donald Trump’s 2016 Victory (VIDEO) … “Because we are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country”
NOT A BAD SPEECH BY OBAMA … GIVING CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.
Watch Barack Obama’s video below, Obama actually provided the correct tone and message to America following the Donald Trump presidential election. Obama stated, we are all rooting for success and the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy in the United States of America. Honestly, it is too bad he did not have this tenor for the past 8 years and had taken his own advice. And ending his speech with God Bless America might have been a nice touch. However, the Obama speech below is a good one. Let’s hope he maintains there same beliefs after he is out of office toward president-elect Trump.
Good afternoon, everybody. Yesterday, before votes were tallied, I shot a video that some of you may have seen in which I said to the American people, regardless of which side you were on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come up in the morning.
And that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. The sun is up. And I know everybody had a long night. I did as well. I had a chance to talk to President-elect Trump last night about 3:30 in the morning, I think it was, to congratulate him on winning the election and I had a chance to invite him to come to the White House tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies.
Now, it is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences. But remember, eight years ago President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences. But President Bush’s team could not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running.
And one thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency and the vice presidency is bigger than any of us. So I have instructed my team to follow the example that President Bush’s team set eight years ago, and work as hard as we can to make sure that this is a successful transition for the president-elect.
Because we are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country. The peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. And over the next few months, we are going to show that to the world.
Now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first.
We all want what’s best for this country. That’s what I heard in Mr. Trump’s remarks last night. That’s what I heard when I spoke to him directly. And I was heartened by that. That’s what the country needs — a sense of unity, a sense of inclusion, a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law, and respect for each other.
I hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition. And I certainly hope that’s how his presidency has a chance to begin.
So win or lose in this election, that was always our mission. That was our mission from day one. And everyone on my team should be extraordinarily proud of everything that they have done and so should all of the Americans that I’ve had a chance to meet all across this country who do the hard work of building on that progress every single day.
So this was a long and hard fought campaign. A lot of our fellow Americans are exalted today, a lot of Americans are less so, but that’s the nature of campaigns, that’s the nature of democracy. It is hard and sometimes contentious and noisy and it’s not always inspiring.
But to the young people who got into politics for the first time and may be disappointed by the results, I just want you to know, you have to stay encouraged. Don’t get cynical, don’t ever think you can’t make a difference. As Secretary Clinton said this morning, fighting for what is right is worth it. Sometimes you lose an argument, sometimes you lose an election.
You know, the path that this country has taken has never been a straight line. We zig and zag and sometimes we move in ways that some people think is forward and others think is moving back, and that’s OK. I’ve lost elections before. Joe hasn’t, but…
You know. So I’ve been sort of sure…
BIDEN: But (ph) you beat me badly.
OBAMA: That’s the way politics works sometimes. We try really hard to persuade people that we’re right and then people vote. And then if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds, we brush ourselves off, we get back in the arena, we go at it. We try even harder the next time.
The point though is is that we all go forward with a presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens, because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. That’s how this country has moved forward for 240 years. It’s how we’ve pushed boundaries and promoted freedom around the world. That’s how we’ve expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. It’s how we have come this far.
And that’s why I’m confident that this incredible journey that we’re on, as Americans, will go on. And I’m looking forward to doing everything that I can to make sure that the next president is successful in that.
I’ve said before, I think of this job as being a relay runner. You take the baton, you run your best race and hopefully by the time you hand it off, you’re a little further ahead, you’ve made a little progress. And I can say that we’ve done that and I want to make sure that hand-off is well executed because ultimately we’re all on the same team.
All right. Thank you very much, everybody.
Donald Trump Did Better With Blacks & Hispanics Than Mitt Romney in 2012 Exit Polls … Hillary Clinton Under-Preformed
I GUARANTEE TRUMP DID EVEN BETTER THAN EXIT POLLS CLAIMS AS MANY WOULD NEVER ADMIT THEY VOTED FOR TRUMP …
As reported at NBC, Donald Trump did better in the 2016 presidential election exit polls with blacks and Hispanics than Mitt Romney did in 2012. According to exit polls, Trump claimed 29% of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday compared to Romney’s 27% in 2012. And with blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8% of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6%. I will state that the numbers were probably even greater for Trump s many blacks and Hispanics would never have admitted to a polling agent who they voted for. The minority Clinton firewall was breached. Why did this happen, maybe because Trump was willing to speak the truth. Trump also made a plea for the minority vote and promised to help aid the inner cities, promises that have been long made by Democrats in the past and ignored, even by the first elected black president, Barack Obama.
I had said from the outset of this election, even if Hillary Clinton garnered the same percentage of the black vote, there was no way the number of blacks would come out and support her as compared to Obama. That was just common logic. Hillary was not going to inspire blacks to vote for her like the first elected black president. In the end, she could not even manage to get the same percentage. 88% as compared to 93% for Obama in 2012. If Donald Trump does what he says in not forgetting minorities and putting them back to work, the Democrat lock on minorities may be broken forever.
Donald Trump performed stronger among black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did as the Republican nominee in 2012, according to NBC Exit Polls.
Tuesday’s exit poll results have not yet been finalized but so far they show Trump outmatching Romney by two points in each voting bloc.
Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012. With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.
That means Trump — who called Mexicans “rapists” and “killers” — garnered more support from Hispanics than a candidate whose most controversial position was telling undocumented immigrants to “self-deport.”
Trump has frequently linked blacks to “inner city” slums and crime at rallies. Yet he performed better among African American voters than a considerably more moderate Republican nominee.
Among the many questions early exit polls are raising about Donald Trump’s upset victory Tuesday evening is how Hillary Clinton underperformed so severely among black and Hispanic voters, when she was expected to overwhelmingly sweep up each demographic.
Exit polls from CNN and NBC show that Trump managed to perform better among black and Hispanic voters than Republican nominee Mitt Romney did in 2012.
Yet despite a surge in early voting among Hispanics in states like Florida, Arizona, and Nevada, which boosted expectations of a Clinton victory, she ended up winning just 65% of the Hispanic vote — down from Obama’s 71% in 2012.
Clinton, who had relied on black voters as her “firewall” during the primaries, received less of their vote than expected in the general election. She only received 88% of their vote, down from the whopping 93% who supported Obama in 2012.
An interesting tid-bit of info comes from the Daily Caller … “despite expectations that his path to victory depended on supercharging white turnout, Trump did not outperform Romney among white voters. He received just 58 percent of the white vote, a small drop from Romney’s 59 percent. Clinton, though, dropped further, winning just 37 percent of whites compared to Obama’s 39 percent”.
ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS AND FIGURE OUT THIS ELECTION, IS THE UNITED STATES STILL A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND A NATION OF LAWS.
From Neil Cavuto comes the following video, Coast to Coast illegal alien asking President Barack Obama if she should fear voting, because immigration will come and get her and her family and deport them. The question to a sitting president of the United States is whether a “non-citizen” votes in an election whether they and their family will be rounded up and deported. Obama says no. WTF!!! Obama says because you vote, you are a citizen. WHAT?!? You vote because you are a citizen. Obama just basically said that illegals can vote and nothing will happen to you. Obama’s comments do not even border on criminal, they are criminal.
THIS IS UNREAL. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
WIKILEAKS: Barack Obama Caught Lying … Obama Knew About Hillary’s Private Emails & Server, but Lied Anyway to We the People
WE HAVE JUST HAD 8 YEARS OF A LIAR IN CHIEF, WHY IN HELL WOULD AMERICA WANT FOUR MORE YEARS F A LYING, CROOKED HILLARY?
Remember back in March when Barack Obama told CBS News that he had only heard about Hillary Clinton’s private emails through news reports? If you don’t, then watch the video below and you will hear it from the horses mouth. Guess who lied? Then again, that is nothing new from the Lying King who brought you Obamacare and you can keep your insurance and doctor if you want to. Just how corrupt is the Obama administration and what a sorry state of affairs for the United States that one presidency would be allowed to lie and deceive the American people so much and not be held accountable. Richard Nixon wishes he was president today.
Emails released by WikiLeaks last week also suggested Obama was complicit in Clinton’s illegal email practices. “Talk to Josh [Earnest] or Eric [Schultz]. They know POTUS and HRC emailed,” Palmieri told Philippe Reines after he expressed concern over Obama’s claim.
Obama lies and tells first he heard of Hillary’s private emails was the news
Check out the docs for yourself from Wikileaks. In an email from firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com, Team Hillary discusses the fact that they need to “clean this up” as Obama has emails from her that are from her personal email account. Imagine that, Obama lied.
More that Obama knew he was lying to the American people …
A March 2015 email chain released by WikiLeaks Tuesday is further proof that President Obama lied to the American people when he said he found out about Hillary Clinton’s private email server from news reports.
“Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news,” Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin wrote to Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, press secretary Nick Merrill, and others.
Merrill then forwarded Schwerin’s email to longtime Clinton confidante and attorney Cheryl Mills, who sent it to campaign Chairman John Podesta. “We need to clean this up,” she wrote to Podesta. “He has emails from her — they do not say state.gov.”
Obama clearly lied when he told CBS’ Bill Plante that he learned about Clinton’s use of a private email account and server “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
Obamacare Premiums to Rise Almost 25% and Some Consumers Down to One Insurer … What Happened to the $2500 Premium Reduction?
HOW THAT “UNAFFORDABLE” AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT WORKING OUT FOR YOU AMERICA?
As stated at Town Hall, just days after Barack Obama gave Obamacare a ringing endorsement, it is now confirmed that consumers will be feeling the wrath of Obamacare premiums rising as much as 25%. As reported by the AP, as per the administration, Obamacare premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer. According to CNN, the average premium increase masks wide variation among the states. In Arizona, the benchmark plan’s average premium will increase 116% in 2017. Remember this when you go to the polls America. I can’t say we did not warn you and tell you this from day one. You were lied to America by the current president, do we really want 4 more years of Democrat lies?
Remember when this liar told you Obamacare would reduce your premiums up to $2500 a year?
Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That’s sure to stoke another “Obamacare” controversy days before a presidential election.
Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.
Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles.
“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. [...]
In some states, the premium increases are striking. In Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark “second-lowest cost silver plan” will jump by 116 percent, from $196 to $422, according to the administration report. [...]
Dwindling choice is another issue.
The total number of HealthCare.gov insurers will drop from 232 this year to 167 in 2017, a loss of 28 percent. (Insurers are counted multiple times if they offer coverage in more than one state. So Aetna, for example, would count once in each state that it participated in.)
