  • OBAMA'S GREATEST HITS

    07/22/2017 4:45:03 PM PDT · by cradle of freedom · 22 replies
    Here are some of Obama's classic gems as spoken on national television from his own mouth. 1)On the superiority of Obama care to the previous system that he wrecked: Before, doctors instead of teaching diabetics about proper eating and exercise, they would just let them get sick so they could just cut the patients foot off so they could get more insurance money. 2) The police acted stupidly. 3) If I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin. (Hint, hint get the gasoline. Lots of 100% discounts tonight.) 4) We are going to punish our enemies and reward...

    Obama offered a reprise of one of his earliest gaffes on the national political stage... "[A] lot of those men and women who we celebrate on Veterans Day and Memorial Day come back and find that, when it comes to finding a job or getting the kind of care that they need, we’re not always there the way we need to be." Almost four years ago, Obama offered this on the campaign trail as a presidential candidate: "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the...

    Alan Dershowitz, a prominent Harvard Law School professor and liberal author, slammed the Democratic National Committee as hypocritical for politicizing White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Hitler gaffe while ignoring its own problem with anti-Semitism. Mr. Dershowitz said on “CNN Tonight” that he’s willing to give Mr. Spicer “a pass” after the press secretary initially suggested during a briefing Tuesday, which also marked Passover, that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during WWII. “What happened here is the guy screwed up,” Mr. Dershowitz said, according to a clip published by Real Clear Politics. “He apologized, and he apologized from his...

    In the most shocking mix-up in Oscars history, Moonlight won best picture at the Academy Awards — but only after presenter Faye Dunaway announced La La Land as the winner, setting off mass confusion inside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. “I want to tell you what happened,” co-presenter Warren Beatty explained after the mix-up was revealed. “I opened the envelope, and it said ‘Emma Stone, La La Land.’ That’s why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny.” “Well, I don’t know what happened. I blame myself for this,” Kimmel...

    Hillary Clinton’s Pander Express pulled into “The Breakfast Club” today and she attempted to explain her support for the New York Yankees — but also for the Chicago Cubs. After one of the hosts showed her his t-shirt featuring a photo of Clinton in a Yankees hat, he said, “I heard you were a Cubs fan,” about halfway through the interview. “I am,” she responded, “that’s my National League team.” “Y’all in the Super Bowl, I mean the World Series,” he said. “Yeah, we’re in the Super Bowl,” Clinton said, before the other hosts jumped in to correct her. “World...

    We thought we’d seen the last of third party presidential candidate Gary Johnson after his infamous “Aleppo” flub, but the former New Mexico governor has seemingly managed to outdo himself. Amid arguing he would poll as well as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton if he were allowed at the debates, the Libertarian party candidate bizarrely began sticking his tongue out at the reporter interviewing him seated less than a foot away.

    The New York Post ^ | September 12, 2016 | Fredric U. Dicker
    New York Republicans and even some Democrats called Hillary Clinton’s characterization of Donald Trump’s backers as a bigoted “basket of deplorables” a major blunder that will badly damage her already-faltering campaign. “It’s Exhibit A of her political incompetence,” a prominent Democratic operative who strongly supports Clinton told The Post. “I think a lot of Democratic strategists are in a state of disbelief at how clunky Hillary’s campaign has been. “It’s been a year-and-a-half and she still can’t answer the goddamn email question, and despite outspending Trump by huge amounts, she’s losing ground to him every day and the race is...

    Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson went on MSNBC's Morning Joe today and admitted in response to a question about Aleppo, Syria, that he had no idea what "Aleppo" was. This was a pretty big mistake for someone who is likely to get millions of votes in the upcoming presidential election, so the New York Times wrote a story about it. Except that its story misidentified Aleppo. SIS's de facto capital is Raqqa, not Aleppo. Whoops! But the paper realized its mistake pretty quickly and changed the story. From an archive site: Here's the problem: Aleppo...

    Washington Post via Sacramento Bee ^ | September 10th, 2016 | By Aaron Blake
    Hillary Clinton said Friday night in New York that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic and/or Islamophobic. At an “LGBT for Hillary” fundraiser, where Barbra Streisand performed, Clinton expanded on previous comments about many Trump supporters falling into a “basket of deplorables” that includes the groups listed above. The difference this time was that she put a number on it. And it wasn’t a small number. “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables’. Right?” Clinton said, per The Post’s Abby Phillip....

    "She works hard for the money!" Got that? And if you don't, Senator Tom Carper of Delaware repeats it over and over again in reference to Hillary Clinton who he introducing at a rally. To make it even worse Carper, lacking all sense of self awareness, even tries to get the audience whom he condescendingly treats like simpletons to chant the same line. Carper's performance was so embarrassing that even ABC News had to laugh at him.

    Trump: Cruz doesn’t ‘even know what state he comes GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Tuesday mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for mistakenly calling Florida his home state. “His home state is not Florida, it is Texas,” he told host Anderson Cooper during a CNN townhall in Milwaukee. “It might be Canada,” Trump quipped, mocking Cruz’s birthplace. “[But] he didn’t even know what state he comes from. Fort Hood is from Texas by the way. I am so surprised, Anderson, that you let him get away with it.” Cruz accidentally called Florida as his home state while discussing a 2009...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump late Wednesday pinned blame for his scriptural gaffe -saying "2 Corinthians" instead of "Second Corinthians" - on evangelical activist Tony Perkins. "Tony Perkins wrote that out for me. He actually wrote out the 2, he wrote out the number 2 Corinthians," Trump said on "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon." "I took exactly what Tony said, and I said, 'Well, Tony has to know better than anybody.'" The slip-up drew laughs from the crowd at evangelical Liberty University and led to attacks on the billionaire businessman's faith. But Trump said he has since heard from "a...

    A lot of guffawing about this by reporters on social media today. Mollie Hemingway wonders: Who pulled them aside and told them it’s supposed to be “Second Corinthians”? Mildly getting kick out of media, who (at best) give a pitch perfect impression of Biblical illiteracy, mocking Trump for 'Two Corinthians.'— Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 18, 2016 Readers grumble that I’m too negative about Trump so let me pay him a sincere compliment. I admire that he has the stones to go into a place like Liberty and not even make a pretense of being a devout believer. You could dismiss what...

    In what may have been a case of debate nerves, former New York Gov. George Pataki mistakenly referred to fellow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as the "president" during CNN's undercard debate Tuesday night, and Trump's response was nothing short of apathetic. It started with a question from CNN host and debate moderator Wolf Blitzer, "You've also suggested Mr. Trump's plan is un-American and absurd. Why?" "Absolutely, it's one of many absurd things this president has said to target a religion..." Pataki responded, but did not correct his statement. Minutes later, Trump took to Twitter to point out the mix-up....

  • Swiss Bishop Apologizes for Calling Homosexual Acts 'Abomination'

    Under heavy public pressure, a Swiss Catholic bishop has issued a public apology for a statement in which he referred to homosexual activity as an abomination and cited Old Testament passages saying that offenders should be put to death. Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur sent a 3-page letter to clerics in which he said it had been a “mistake” to make his comments—which he had delivered at a forum in Germany—“on a theological and academic level.” He said that he should have shown a draft of his talk to colleagues, who would have warned him on the likely outcry.
