Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, your prayers have been answered. The two greatest politicians in American history will be teaming up to help Democratic candidates during the midterm elections.
Former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are working on plans to campaign for Democrats in 2018, and Democrats worry they plan to change the direction of the Party. Aides to Obama told The Hill’s Amie Parnes he is looking to resurface on the national campaign stage. Parnes also reported Clinton is trying to sort out what role she might play in the midterms.
Although the pair bring a lot of fundraising firepower to a very crowded field of needy Democratic candidates, party insiders worry about who would control the party if either past candidate became too influential.
Thank. You. Jesus! Pairing Obama and Hillary together is a godsend. A feckless, pantywaist former president, and a mentally ill, compulsive liar whining about President Trump is a surefire way to ensure the GOP keeps both the Senate and the House.
Many of you have probably read this story by now, but the Obama administration knew the North Koreans were manufacturing miniature nukes four years ago, and pressured the media to downplay the story.
But yes, please tell me how Donald Trump needs to be impeached.
Tuesday’s Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.
During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.
The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea “strategic patience” policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president. Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.
So this cock-holster ignored a growing threat, suppressed the weapons information, and left the next president holding the bag. Obama did the same thing with the Iranian nuclear deal. The piece of garbage sacrificed this country’s safety to stroke his own massive ego.
Insane, inbred North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un is threatening to launch a missile strike against Guam. The preemptive action could light the fuse to another world war.
A spokesman for North Korea’s military said it would carry out a pre-emptive operation if there were signs of US provocation. The warning comes after President Trump warned North Korea it would be met with “fire and fury” if it continued to threaten the US in a marked escalation of rhetoric.
The statement mentioned using the Hwasong-12, the intermediate range missile tested in May. North Korea said at the time the missile can carry a heavy nuclear warhead, and independent analysis seems to fit their statement. (H/T – AOSHQ)
This is what happens when president (Clinton) after feckless president (Obama) enables these mutants. The fat bastard is ready to start a nuclear war because 1. he is batshit crazy, and 2. he has literally nothing to lose.
The worst part is if we eliminate this bloated prick, we’ll be dealing with similar threats from Iran soon afterward.
Socialist Communist Democratic New York City mayor Bill De Blasio announced a unique and innovative plan to fix the city’s ailing mass transit system: tax the rich!
De Blasio on Sunday unveiled an election-year pitch to raise $800 million a year for mass transit by soaking the rich with a nearly 14 percent tax increase on high-income Big Apple residents.
The proposed city income-tax hike would raise the rate for individuals making more than $500,000 and married couples earning over $1 million from 3.876 percent to 4.41 percent. About $250 million would be used to subsidize half-price MetroCards for about 800,000 New Yorkers living in poverty.
“The top 1 percent can afford to do a bit more — and should, because a transit system that works makes New York City’s economy strong and benefits us all.”
Yes, because straight up socialism has worked so well in, say, Venezuela. Why any wealthy person would continue living in New York City is completely beyond me.
Venezuela, the socialist paradise admired by Democrats and Hollywood – but I repeat myself – crushed an attempted coup Sunday as a group of soldiers attacked a Paramacay base in Valencia.
Venezuelan authorities suppressed a small rebellion at a military base Sunday, arresting seven men who they say participated in a “terrorist attack” against the government of unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro.
A video circulated on social media showing a group of men in military uniform announcing an uprising in the wake of the creation of a pro-government legislative superbody on Friday, which was widely condemned as a power grab.
Hundreds took to the streets in Valencia to support the uprising, said resident Carolina Herrera, who like other witnesses reported shots through the night. But hooded protesters had been largely dispelled with tear gas by midday on Sunday, and the rest of the South American country of 30 million appeared to be calm.
Maduro sees himself as the next iron man of Venezuela, and the country is on the verge of civil war. Somewhere on a Hawaiian beach, Barack Obama is shedding a tear.
The OMG TRUMP-RUSSIA! kabuki theater kicked it up a notch yesterday when
Democrat hack special counsel Robert Mueller announced a grand jury would be created to determine if charges should be filed for the president or members of his administration.
President Donald Trump attacked Democrats Thursday for losing the election and subsequently trying to “cheat” voters “out of the leadership you want” after news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in his Russia probe.
Trump, speaking to thousands of supporters at a rally in West Virginia, argued that instead of looking at him and his campaign, prosecutors “should be looking at Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails.” This prompted “lock her up” chants that were a prominent feature on the 2016 campaign trail.
The president said the “Russia story” is a “fabrication,” and “most people know there were no Russians in our campaign. We didn’t win because of Russia we won because of you,” Trump added.
Is he wrong? This investigation is being run by someone close to Democrats and former FBI head James Comey. Mueller has a conflict of interest here, and the released statement claims the investigation touched on things “unconnected to the 2016 election” and “have nothing to do with Russia.”
As Elizabeth Harrington from the Washington Free Beacon asked, “How is this not a witch hunt?”
If you live in a big, liberal city, you take a few things for granted. The water tastes horrible, the streets are filled with trash, and the politicians are both inept and corrupt. That said, while your city may be a den of corruption, Detroit is always there to yell, “Hold my beer!”
Half of the eight mayoral hopefuls on Detroit’s primary ballot next week have been convicted of felony crimes involving drugs, assault or weapons. Three were charged with gun crimes and two for assault with intent to commit murder.
Consultant Greg Bowens said there are candidates with past hardships in every election cycle. It’s not something unique to Detroit or the political arena in general.
True enough. Remember when Abraham Lincoln stabbed Stephen Douglas with a broken bottle during their debates? Good times.
“Black marks on your record show you have lived a little and have overcome some challenges,” said Bowens, a former press secretary to Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and NAACP activist. “They (candidates) deserve the opportunity to be heard, but they also deserve to have the kind of scrutiny that comes along with trying to get an important elected position.”
Wow, that is some Iowa farm-grade bullshit right there. I have a serious question: In the last fifty years, has the NAACP done anything to advance the betterment of black Americans? Every time I see one of their representatives, it is almost always to cover for some corrupt politician or some gun-toting thug. They rarely, if ever, work to help the common man.
The election of Donald Trump has further opened an already cracked door to Hollywood celebrities interested in politics. Recently, singer Kid Rock has mused a run for Michigan’s senate seat, currently occupied by the utterly useless Debbie Stabenow.
Kid Rock, the rap rock musician and outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, tops the field Republican Senate field in Michigan, according to a new poll, but he trails Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow.
Considering Rock, or Robert Ritchie as he was born, hasn’t yet declared his candidacy in the race, Stabenow’s 8-point lead in a hypothetical matchup will likely add fuel to his possible candidacy. Ritchie took 33 percent in the Target-Insyght poll, compared to his closest rival, businessman and veteran John James, who had 16 percent. (James filed to run last month.)
The poll showed 49 percent of likely Michigan voters think Trump is doing an “excellent” or “pretty good” job as president, a much more positive assessment than his national approval ratings, currently just under 40 percent.
Take a look at Stabenow’s sponsored legislation. Only six bills since 2001, with two bills renaming buildings and one bill dealing with a commemorative a coin. The woman is beyond useless, and in my opinion, Kid Rock would bee a massive improvement.
Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), has released information claiming members of the Obama administration improperly – and likely illegally – unmasked the identities of hundreds of Americans caught in intelligence reports.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is accusing top political aides of President Obama of making hundreds of requests during the 2016 presidential race to unmask the names of Americans in intelligence reports, including Trump transition officials.
Nunes said the total requests for Americans’ names by Obama political aides numbered in the hundreds during Obama’s last year in office and often lacked a specific intelligence community justification. He called the lack of proper justifications a “serious deficiency.”
“The committee has learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration,” Nunes wrote. “Of those requests, only one offered a justification that was not boilerplate.” Nunes wrote “Obama-era officials sought the identities of Trump transition officials within intelligence reports.”
This was the most corrupt administration in American history, led by the most corrupt president in American history. It is my sincere hope Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee go after these offenders without hesitation. The only deterrent to lawlessness is investigations and arrests.
The U.S. Senate held a vote concerning the full repeal of Obamacare – a similar bill almost every GOP senator agreed to in 2015 – and the results will neither shock nor surprise you.
The push for a “clean” repeal of Obamacare died Wednesday after Senate Republicans were unable to rally the votes, forcing leaders to turn to watered-down proposals that would repeal only some of the onerous parts of the troubled health care law.
Seven Republicans, including six who supported it two years ago, voted against repeal. Fellow Republicans said they broke their promise to voters. It was a far cry from Republicans’ seven-year pledge to voters to rip out Obamacare, “root and branch,” once they were put in charge of Congress and the White House.
The seven “Republicans” include many of the usual suspects, including the despicable John McCain.
The seven Republicans who joined Democrats in opposing repeal were Sens. Susan M. Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Rob Portman of Ohio, and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
All but Ms. Collins voted for the 2015 repeal, which President Obama vetoed.
These sons of bitches sent this bill to Obama’s desk time after time, knowing full well King Putt would exercise his veto power. They told us they cannot do anything unless they controlled the Senate, House, and the White House. We gave that to them, and now they refuse to repeal the legislation which got most of them elected. It’s disgusting.
These politicians lied to our faces, and they will never repeal Obamacare. Ever.
