    Colorado Democrats hope to convince their fellow state lawmakers to rename a stretch of Interstate 25 the “Barack Obama Highway.” The measure passed a House panel by a 12-1 vote Thursday, but could eventually face opposition in the Republican-controlled Senate. The bill would apply to the portion of the interstate that runs through Denver in recognition of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which the city hosted. It was there that Obama accepted the party's nomination for president. Several states have renamed stretches of roads after the 44th president, including California, Illinois, Indiana, Florida and Missouri. Florida leads the way with...

    Under oath will members of congress ask Zuckerberg the right questions? I suspect not as most of them have apparently gotten money from Facebook. The questions I'd like to hear him answer: Which organizations received data, in any quantity, similar to what Cambridge Analytica received?Did Facebook directly or indirectly share information, in any quantity, with Hillary Clinton campaigns?Did Facebook directly or indirectly share information, in any quantity, with Barack Obama campaigns?Did and does Facebook directly or indirectly share information, in any quantity, with China or any other country?Aside from what Facebook directly or indirectly shared, in any quantity, are you...
  • Morning Joe Outrage over Sinclair Segment, but Obama Nostalgic for Era When Left Controlled Media

    Liberals never complained when the news was controlled by a handful of outlets all spouting the same left-wing line. To the contrary, just last week, Barack Obama waxed nostalgic over those good old days: “It used to be in the United States that there were three television stations, basically everybody watched the same thing, everybody got their news from the same sources, so everybody more or less had a similar view of the world.” But now that the liberal monopoly of the media has been broken, suddenly the left is outraged and appalled. Today’s opening segment of Morning Joe was...

    Obama! Obama! Why hast thou obandoned us! Ah, the good life! Kitesurfing in the Caribbean! Sampling exotic foods throughout Asia! Anticipating multi-million dollar book deals! Such are the wonderful perks of a post-presidency.  Very nice for Barack Obama but for the rest of the Democrats? Not so hot. That is the premise of James Wolcott in the April edition of Vanity Fair. The writer who fantasized about a revenge-tinged "reckoning" following an imagined Trump expulsion from office is now grumbling about Obama enjoying himself way too much while ignoring the Democrats in "CAN OBAMA RESCUE THE DEMOCRATS?" with a subtitle...

    Former President Obama said on Sunday that he would like to create "a million young Barack Obamas" to run the next stage in the "relay race that is human progress," the Washington Examiner reported. Obama reportedly made the comment at a conference in Japan while discussing the Obama Foundation’s work to help young people around the world get connected using the internet. “If I could do that effectively, then — you know — I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas,” Obama said. “Or, the next group of people who could...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 23, 2018
    A man who claimed without evidence that he had sex with former President Barack Obama says the media is showing a “sickening” double standard with coverage of an alleged affair between President Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels. Larry Sinclair’s allegations involving Obama, cocaine, and a limo — set in 1999, when Obama was a state senator — failed to gain broad coverage for a variety of reasons, including lack of corroboration and Sinclair’s record of crimes involving deceit. But Sinclair says the media is giving too much attention and too little skepticism to claims of a 2006 affair between...

    Protocol is allowed by the media for Saint Obama but not for the devil they make Donald Trump out to be Why is it that when the Washington Post is caught with its houndstooth pants down, the Mainstream and Social Media are always found looking pointedly the other way? The WaPo’s “LEAD” story going viral today makes it seem that Donald Trump was the first—and only—president to ever congratulate Vladimir Putin on an election victory when, in point of fact, former president Barack Obama did the same thing, only in a much more gushing way:

    Former President Barack Obama denied that his administration had any scandals that embarrassed him or his team. It is unclear why Obama clarified that there were no scandals “that embarrassed us.” “There were mistakes,” he admitted. “We’d screw up, but there wasn’t anything venal during eight years. I know that seems like a low bar, but you look at the presidency; that’s no small thing.” Conservatives remember the Obama years differently, citing the Fast and Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, wiretapping journalists, the terror attacks in Benghazi, delivering pallets of cash to Iran, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s...

Initially Amy Sherald did a magical portrait of Barack. It was very groundbreaking. And modern.It was titled “It made sense…mostly in zer mind.” And Kahinde Wylie plied his talents on the portrait of Michelle, working title, “The Beard.” Also groundbreaking.However upon review it was determined that switching the artists out with each other would produce a better final product for the...

    The United Nations has issued a report in which it states that al-Qaeda's global terror network remains "remarkably resilient" as ISIS quickly heads towards defeat. In some regions, the reports argues, al-Qaeda now poses more of a threat than ISIS. The report, sent to the UN Security Council, says that AQAP -- al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, based in Yemen -- has now become the communications hub for the entire organization. "Al-Qaeda affiliates remain the dominant terror threat in some regions, such as Somalia and Yemen, a fact demonstrated by a continuous stream of attacks and foiled operations," the report...

    Despite all of this bad news President Trump holds a 48% approval rating today in the Rasmussen daily tracking. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove. The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8. President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day. Back on February 7,...

    Former President Barack Obama is expected to be in Monterey Wednesday to attend a private AT&T leadership conference on the Monterey Peninsula. Many celebrities and professional golfers are in town this week because of the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. Advertisement Details surrounding Obama's Central Coast visit are very hush-hush. Local Monterey police officers said they have not even been briefed on the visit. It's unclear when the 44th President of the United States' plane is scheduled to arrive. High profile dignitaries often land at the Monterey Jet Center. The Monterey County Sheriff's bomb squad worked with Secret Service...

    A new batch of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealed President Barack Obama wanted updates on the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according a report released Wednesday. On Sept. 2, 2016 — just weeks away from election day — Ms. Page texted Mr. Strzok, her lover, about preparing a report for then-FBI Director James B. Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” That raises questions about Mr. Obama’s involvement in the Clinton investigation, the report said. The message were released in a report by Sen. Ron Johnson,...

    Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing." The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by Fox News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016, about prepping Comey because "potus wants to know everything we're doing." According to a newly released...

Regarding Stormy Daniels’ allegations of an affair with Trump, Blow writes [emphasis added throughout]: “If this were Barack Obama, Tiki-torch-toting Nazis would have descended on the White House and burned it to the ground.” Get the rest of the story here.

    Although Trump has been far from perfect so far as president, he's a great upgrade from Obama. For instance, see Trump's major tax cut bill and his other job-growth policies, and his appointment of conservative judges. And that's not all: he's fulfilled his promise to restore relations with Israel. Clearly, the only Jewish state and the only Mideast democracy is well aware of that fact: A new poll shows that a wide swath of Israelis approves of United States President Donald Trump's performance in his first year of office. According to the Gallup poll, 67% of Israelis say they approve...
