    Guns in the News ^ | 02-15-2017 | Tim Brown
    The first bill to repeal an Obama anti-gun measure passed Congress is now on its way to President Donald Trump's desk. On Wednesday, the Senate voted to overturn Barack Hussein Obama's Social Security gun ban.  The vote in the Senate was 57-43, with all Republicans voting for the repeal. They were joined by only four Democrats and one Independent. The earlier House vote was 235-180. House Joint Resolution 40 is now waiting for Trump to sign it into law.  It was only following the Constitution, none of this would be necessary as the central government has absolutely not authority to...

    In November of 2015, Van Jones accused Donald Trump of acting in an “Un-American” way after Trump revealed the joy expressed by a number of Muslims over the 9/11 murders. It seems Political Correctness demands that the truth remain unspoken if it is likely to reveal unpleasant facts about one of Mr. Jones’ favored groups. The following piece was published in November of 2015 on the Coach is Right website. According to Van Jones, Donald Trump acted in an “Un-American” way when he claimed to have seen thousands of New Jersey Muslims on television, celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks. "This...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | January 13, 2017 | Christi Parsons and W.J. Hennigan
    Before he took office in 2008, Barack Obama vowed to end America’s grueling conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. During his second term, he pledged to take the country off what he called a permanent war footing. “Our systematic effort to dismantle terrorist organizations must continue,” he said in May 2013. “But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. It’s what our democracy demands.” But Obama leaves a very different legacy as he prepares to hand his commander-in-chief responsibilities to Donald Trump. U.S. military forces have been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the...

    High-profile inmates serving life sentence for marijuana crimes were not given clemency by President Barack Obama on Thursday, leaving their families devastated after long public campaigns urging their freedom. John Knock, whose sister Beth Curtis has lobbied for the release of nonviolent marijuana convicts, learned Wednesday that his application had been denied. Knock was arrested in 1996 and convicted in 2000 of participating in an international pot-smuggling operation. “It’s an incredibly painful disappointment that my brother – a wonderful person who is totally nonviolent – is going to die in prison,” Curtis says, holding back tears.

She’s thrived as a First Lady, but it’s not her preference,” Obama says.

    According to a new poll among Jewish Israelis, the majority believe that Barack Obama was (or: still is) a terribly anti-Israel president. It's hard to argue with that, of course, since Obama proved time and again that he despises the world's only Jewish nation, but it's good of them to send him this farewell message anyway: Less than two weeks before President Barack Obama hands over the Oval Office to President-elect Donald Trump, the majority of Jewish Israelis (57%) are letting him know they think his attitude toward Israel during his tenure was unfriendly. Obviously, the real question is: what's...

The polls and general consensus of polling and biased press reporting had assured the American public that Mrs. Clinton would win easily. All of the major news outlets projected a Clinton landslide. The fact that it didn’t happen could only be attributed to Russian intervention!

On his way, out of office, the President has issued more executive orders, set aside 1.65 million additional acres for national monuments, released more prisoners and tried to find as many ways as possible to politically handcuff his successor.

The result – that Donald Trump will officially enter the Oval Office on Jan. 20 – was affirmed by the Electoral College, an institution the Left is now casting as racist and anti-Democratic.

    Venezuela's President Maduro says his abrupt decision to scrap the country's most-used banknote has allowed the country to triumph over its enemies. He said taking millions of 100-bolivar notes out of circulation has smashed the black market. The withdrawl prompted protests and looting in several states as the supply of ready cash rapidly ran out. On Saturday, President Maduro postponed the withdrawl until early January. But there were still reports of rioting on Sunday as anxiety continued to run high. Local reports said some businesses were still refusing to accept the 100-bolivar notes..... Mr. Maduro said on state TV 300...

    It my have taken eight long years, but the days of high-handed, high-spending activists squatting on the White House are over. The business of ‘Making America Great Again’ is already in full swing Monumentally mouthy Michelle Obama should ditch the pious act in claiming that the election of Donald J. Trump leaves America in a sorry state of “hopelessness”. Like some of her tacky outfits it doesn’t look good on her. Here she is in the closing act of her last holiday on American taxpayers taking advantage of an Oprah she once tried to drive out the White House to...

    In a traditional war the Islamic State is losing ground in Iraq to Iraqi, Iranian and Western forces but the terrorist organization is still recruiting extremists and inspiring young Muslims to conduct Jihad in their name. ISIS has lost nearly half of its territory in Iraq and is under heavy attack by Russian led forces in Syria but the group has a large cadre of followers in European countries and the United States. Whether they are established in the West or are posing as refugees they are likely to represent a major terrorist threat to Western nations for years to...

    Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest political feats in modern history by defeating Hillary Clinton and the vaunted Clinton machine. The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships. The country had signaled strongly in the last two midterms that they were not happy. The...

    New York Times Pentagon correspondent Helene Cooper said Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press that the American people see Castro as a "satanic demon" but that President Obama's statement accurately reflected what the world thinks. Cooper said Obama's statement expressed the "ambivalence" the rest of the world feels about Castro. The Times scribe praised Castro's role in taking down apartheid in South Africa, a regime she noted that the U.S. was propping up. "What President Obama's statement reflects is that nobody in the rest of the world sort of agrees with you," Cooper told her fellow MTP guests.

    The following article was published on November 25th on the Frontpage Magazine website by Daniel Greenfield Barack Obama has two faces. After Trump’s victory and Hillary’s defeat, the public Obama has been gracious and diplomatic. His lectures to Trump, directly and indirectly, are couched in praise. He echoed the feeling of millions on both sides when he said, "We are now all rooting for his success”. That’s a lie. Or rather a disguise. Obama and his aides had, in one insider narrative, decided to don the “mask of decorum”. The contempt for Trump still seeps through the mask. And the...

    The following article was published by the American Thinker on November 18th of this year. Should Barack Obama decide to pardon Hillary Clinton, it would only apply against federal investigation and prosecution. Interested parties would retain the right to indict and prosecute the former Secretary of State and investigate the goings on at the Clinton Foundation on the state level.

    The story of the Obama administration sending $770,000,000 in taxpayer money to rebuild and even expand mosques in foreign countries broke in October and enraged taxpayers everywhere. The question coming from taxpayers who were flipping the bill for foreign mosques but often struggling to pay their own bills was, ‘How could we afford to send such sensational, fairy-tale sized money to a foreign country while our infrastructure crumbles, our veterans starve, our job participation rate is at one of the lowest levels ever, and while our national debt stands at never before seen, record levels?’ READ THE REST AT http://resistancefeed.com/2016/11/18/obama-paid-770000000-taxpayer-money-to-foreign-mosques/

Once out of office, he hopes to dedicate himself to training and advising a new wave of politicians, the next 'Michelle and Barack... who right now is sitting out there'.  'What we'll be most interested in is programming that helps the next Michelle Obama or the next Barack Obama,'...
