    President Trump is busy doing the job the voters asked for him to do, but this isn't stopping the mainstream press and other establishment cognoscenti from whining about "the Obama legacy" and the dreadful loss these actions by President Trmp this supposedly represent. According to Agence France-Presse: Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launched an all-out assault on the legacy of Barack Obama.

    Washington (CNN)With each passing day, President Donald Trump unravels another piece of Barack Obama's legacy. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The Paris climate accords. The Iran nuclear deal. Transgender people serving in the military. And, now, that most personal of policies for the former president: The Affordable Care Act. And yet Obama watches from the sidelines, mostly silent, as Trump punches holes in the dry wall of his freshly finished legacy.
  • Mainstream Media Very Sad About Trump Overturning ‘Obama’s Legacy’

    Many mainstream media commentators repeated the talking point that President Trump was dismantling “Obama’s legacy” Friday. http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/13/watch-mainstream-media-very-sad-about-trump-overturning-obamas-legacy-video/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitterHosts and pundits on MSNBC and CNN were not happy over President Trump’s tough talk on Iran Friday. Coupled with this week’s executive order on Obamacare, many in the media did not look thrilled reporting on the news that Trump was taking apart “Obama’s legacy.” President Trump called Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” He also floated the possibility of pulling out of the deal, but did not do so...
  • Vanity - John (SATAN) McCain, the !00% Political Whore and Disloyal American.

    09/23/2017 8:56:25 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 52 replies
    Senator, John McCain is much like Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amen, Nero, Caligula, etc. Today he basks in the glory in denying the people of Arizona and the United States of America the opportunity to receive a vast improvement in their healthcare access. His hate, like those mentioned above is filled with the same hate and envy that all of these misfit human beings brought to earth. He is the worst of political whores and certainly has no loyalty to anyone but himself. History will not be kind to him...he will perish to eternity as a failed human...
  • Nearly 2 million California acres were set aside for frogs. But ranchers say decision ignores them

    Sacramento Bee ^ | July 31, 2017 | BY DALE KASLER, CAROLYN WILKE AND RYAN SABALOW
    Tiny frogs and toads used to swarm over the Sierra Nevada. Now they’re considered endangered, and the government says they need to be protected. California ranchers say those protections are hurting their ability to make a living. So another conflict over the Endangered Species Act is going to court. The California Farm Bureau and two ranchers’ associations sued the U.S. Fish and Wildife Service on Monday, challenging a year-old decision to designate more than 1.8 million acres of rural California as “critical habitat” for three endangered species of frogs. The critical habitat designation subjects farmers “to substantial regulatory burdens that...

The Saudis, Saudi, but if you go over there you’ll hear some people say Saudi Arabia. The Palestinians, have you heard how they pronounce “Israeli”? The Israelis. The Israelis. They say it routinely. Even Arafat said it that way. We Americanize “the Israelis.” There are people that say, the Saudis. Even though it’s not the House of Saud, it’s the House of Saud....
  • Vocal Ex-President Barack Obama Desperate to Save His Legacy from Donald Trump

    Despite his voiced desire to stay out of the political theater, former president Barack Obama returned again to defend his presidency and speak out against his successor Donald Trump. The former president has repeatedly spoken out against Republicans and their policies, facing a sharp reversal of his presidency. “I want to be quiet a little bit and not hear myself talk so darn much,” Obama said to reporters during the last press conference of his presidency. But it’s clear that the president has no intention of staying out of the public spotlight. On Sunday, the president urged members of Congress...

    The media have had, and will continue to have, a vested interest in preserving Obama’s foreign policy legacy The Washington Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, recently gave Susan Rice four Pinocchios for a false and misleading statement regarding Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile. But what is notable about this story is not that Rice lied. She has done that many times. Rather, the remarkable part of this story is that the Post took so long to wake up to this Obama administration falsehood. After all, Kessler’s evidence that Syria still had a chemical weapons capability reaches back two years, to a period...

    The Obama administration doled out more than $77 million to promote the former president’s signature health-care legislation in what could be its final full year of existence, contracts obtained by The New York Post showed. They show the federal government contracted with Democratic-leaning public relations firm Weber Shandwick to spend $74.15 million on July 28, 2016, and another $3.69 million on Sept. 9, 2016, promoting the plan. The Weber Shandwick contract was signed by Pam Jenkins, president of the firm. Its chairman, Jack Leslie, was picked by Obama in 2009 to be chairman of the US African Development Foundation. Leslie...

    Before World War 2, the German Bund played a big role in American politics, generating sympathy for German-Americans, and even for the Kaiser and the Hitler regime, at least until Pearl Harbor. But in the end, in both world wars, Americans of German ancestry played very pro-American roles, a fact that cannot be forgotten. General Ike Eisenhower was only one among many. Nevertheless, it was true for some time that the Bund attracted Americans who identified with the Kaiser in WWI and with Hitler in WWII. I also know of a German-American who went to France before the U.S. entered...

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was released from Iraqi prison custody in 2009, shortly after President Obama came to power largely upon a political promise to end U.S. military involvement in Iraq. Baghdadi was captured in February 2004 by U.S. forces and had been involved in extensive radical activities including kidnappings of many individuals and ransom activities. Under Saddam he had been involved in radical Islamic sects, earning him extra attention from the Baathist government before U.S. forces arrived. Since the premature departure of American forces led by President Obama, Baghdadi rose quickly to power among Islamic supremacists. By 2010, he was...

    When President Obama left the White House for the final time on January 20, he tweeted the following. Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work. — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 20, 2017 It was a short trip. In light of President Trump's recent executive order freezing refugee admission from seven different countries, countries originally identified by the Obama administration as terror hot spots, former President Obama is chiming in. From POLITICO: Kevin Lewis, spokesman for Obama in his post-presidency, said...

                      Here’s the thing about our new president – Barack Obama ran his mouth about fundamentally transforming the United States, but it’s Donald Trump who is actually doing it. Making America great again is not simply about rolling back the calendar to some hazily-recalled, glorious yesterday; it’s about creating a new conservative paradigm of both strength and conflict that is absolutely grounded in the post-modern, new media present. Trumpism is not focused on the past, except in the sense that it seeks to replicate the feel of the strong, healthy, normal U.S. of...

    Before he left office Barack Obama commuted more federal sentences than any other president in history, most famously that of former Army Private Bradley Manning, who divulged hundreds of thousands of classified documents and seriously damaged national security. Drug offenders were also high on Obama’s list. Notably absent was Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, whom Obama ransomed for several notorious Taliban terrorists, and Obama’s National Security Advisor proclaimed an American hero. Why did Manning get the nod and not Bergdahl? Obama was far more personally invested in Bergdahl’s case, feting his parents in the Rose Garden upon the soldier’s release from...
