    Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said on Sunday that he saw “total corruption” in the transition between the presidency of Barack Obama and that of Donald Trump. Speaking on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Johnson called the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 “corrupt” and slammed the media for reporting on leaked information. “What we saw was a total corruption that before, during and after this transition. It's incredibly serious,” Johnson said. “What we know is corrupt investigations, the misuse of defensive briefings, all the media leaks, and, of course, the Obama administration holdovers....

    Just as race riots lay waste to Minneapolis and cities well beyond, out comes the baleful presence of Barack Obama, to hector the nation that elected him that it's full of racism. Here's his blame-America-first statement, via NPR:(see below)

    Harvard philosophy professor Dr. Cornel West weighed in on the ongoing protests in reaction to George Floyd's death in police custody -- and the violence and destruction that have taken place in cities across the U.S. over the past several days. West noted that "black faces in high places" were not able to create needed change because they succumbed to the "capitalist economy" and "militarized nation-state." "The Black Lives Matter movement emerged under a black president, black attorney general, and black homeland security and they couldn't deliver," West said about the Obama administration during a CNN interview Friday night.
  • FlashBack - Obama Refers To Baltimore Rioters As ‘Criminals And Thugs’

    Having been silent since the riots broke out in Baltimore this week, President Obama delivered a lengthy response Tuesday to the violence, calling out the “criminals and thugs who tore up the place.” Asked his thoughts on the unrest during a Rose Garden press conference on trade with the prime minister of Japan, Obama said: “There’s no excuse for the kind of violence we saw yesterday. It is counterproductive. When individuals get crow bars and start prying open doors to loot, they’re not protesting. They’re not making a statement. They’re stealing.” On Monday, people began rioting in the streets of...

    **SNIP** Thanks to the pandemic, this hearing, before a three-judge federal appeals court panel, took place in part via telephone. It was recorded, which means you can still listen in, on the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit website. If you do, you’ll catch University of Chicago (and NYU) law professor Richard Epstein asking for a reversal of last year’s decision by District Court judge John Robert Blakey to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the activist group Protect Our Parks that sought to keep the Obama Presidential Center out of Jackson Park. And you’ll hear city attorney Benna Ruth...

    The Hill ^ | 5/28/2020 | Adam Goodman
    Just when we thought we’d seen it all, heard it all, we are hit with another surreal shocker certain to wend its way into the narrative, and onto paid media as the 2020 presidential derby charges forward. In two recent virtual commencement addresses, former President Barack Obama took aim at Trump by questioning his willingness, much less his ability, to lead. Predictably, the left roared in delight while the right howled in protest. Yet lost in the partisan noise was a more telling passage of prose Obama uttered that day, words that may have eluded vetting by his political handlers...

    American Thinker ^ | 28 May, 2020 | Jamshid Chalangi
    …..However, with the advent of the Obama administration and the start of a policy of appeasement towards the Iranian regime, there was a general change of atmosphere at the VOA and as such, entry into the Persian section for those with known affiliations to the Islamic republic were facilitated. This approach was justified on the grounds that it would help attain the compromise needed with Iran to secure a nuclear agreement with the ‘5+1’. These developments took a disturbing turn when the annual task of assessing ‘News Talk’ and other programs of the VOA Persian was assigned to Mr. Hooman...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Tuesday released a new ad highlighting some of the biggest controversies of the Obama-Biden administration. Not a “single hint of a scandal” Both Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, and former President Obama have insisted that their administration was scandal-free. “Know what I was most proud of? For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie,” Biden said during the rally in Iowa last year.

    How Susan Rice’s Role in the Rwandan Genocide Predicted Obamagate A woman who can turn her back on genocide would hardly blink at spying on Republicans. Tue May 26, 2020 Daniel Greenfield 84 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. When Hillary Clinton stepped down as Secretary of State to prep for a presidential run, her boss had an obvious replacement in mind. His close political ally, Susan Rice.

  • Did Obama illegally spy on Trump? Here's what a new poll shows Americans think

    Republicans and men are far more likely than Democrats or women to believe Obama improperly spied on Trump. Americans are fairly evenly split along partisan lines when it comes to the question of whether senior Obama administration officials illegally spied on President Trump's campaign and transition, a new poll showed Monday. Results from the latest Just the News poll with Scott Rasmussen show 45 precent of Americans believe it was very or somewhat likely that the prior administration improperly spied on Trump, compared to 43 percent who did not. Thirteen-percent said they were unsure. With recent revelations that 39 separate...

    <p>Each day that the Obama administration fades into the past, its wrongdoings manage to wander back into the present.</p> <p>After years of suppression, all sorts of strange events keep popping up to remind us of what little is left of the Obama years — the Susan Rice memo, Christopher Steele deleting his computer records, FBI-doctored and lost 302s, text messages wiped clean, the bizarre Obama January 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting, the ambush interview of Michael Flynn, the unmasking and leaking of redacted names swept up in reverse-targeting surveillance operations, the administration fraud perpetrated on the FISA courts. The list is so overwhelming and bizarre that it ensures that anything at any time can now appear. And the result keeps reminding Americans of how corrupt were the years between 2009 and 2017 and how untruthful was the coverage of such institutionalized wrongdoing.</p>

    The Federalist ^ | MAY 10, 2018 | By David Harsany
    t’s strange that a president who had such a transformative effect on our national discourse will leave such a negligible policy legacy. But Barack Obama, whose imperial term changed the way Americans interact and in some ways paved the way for the Trump presidency, is now watching his much-celebrated and mythologized two-term legacy be systematically demolished. This, in many ways, tells us that American governance still works. When Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Iran deal, he could do so without much difficulty because the agreement hinged on presidential fiat rather than national consensus. But...

    Barack Obama says there is no precedent for anyone getting away with perjury. He forgot about his buddy Bill Clinton. As we get closer and closer to November’s election, a ghost of presidential past is beginning to haunt the political discourse. Barack Obama is back. Beginning last month on Twitter, he started attacking president Trump directly. Now audio of a phone conversation has been “leaked” in which Obama has more to say about what he views as Trump’s failures. In the remarks, one thing stood out: his remarkable take on the exoneration of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Here’s what the...

    The Washington Times ^ | May 22, 2020 | L. Todd Wood
    We’ve written extensively here about the absolute corruption and dual loyalties of the Obama administration. Our main point has been that to analyze Barack Obama’s record, you cannot listen to his eloquent words, but have to discern the malign consequences of his actions, an Islamic caliphate flourishing in the Middle East being in the forefront. When you combine these consequences with the criminal lawlessness being exposed as we write, enabled from the top, along with the intentional racial division that permeated the Obama presidency, the only conclusion possible is that Obama’s agenda was to destroy the United States, not save...

    Barack Obama learned of the coming plans for Russian election meddling in 2014: The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials. As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar...

    The following is a repost of a discussion about what the Russian hackers were really doing in 2016. Robert Mueller and his staff may be covering up the biggest act of espionage in the United States since the acquisition of atomic secrets by the Russians at the start of the Cold War. Mueller is supposed to be investigating what the Russian hackers called "Fancy Bear" did during the 2016 election. However, he continues to ignore an Associated Press expose indicating Fancy Bear focused on non-partisan email users including defense industry employees and those in the intelligence community. According to the...
