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.
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.
Disclaimer: John McCain is an American hero who served his country and blah, blah, blah… Now that that’s out of the way, can anyone tell me why John McCain is 1. still a Republican, and 2. even remotely relevant anymore? This assclown should have been sent to the glue factory two decades ago.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said American leadership was stronger under President Trump’s predecessor, President Barack Obama, according to a Guardian report.
Asked if the country stood on sturdier ground under Obama’s leadership, McCain said “yes,” according to the report.
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” said McCain, who also vocally criticized many of the Obama administration’s foreign policy decisions.
Oh I agree wholeheartedly. I especially enjoyed America’s leadership while Islamic terrorists murdered our Libyan ambassador and three other Americans. Not to mention our groundbreaking initiative of giving weapons to Mexican drug lords, and freeing Guantanamo prisoners.
If McCain appreciates Barack Obama’s strong leadership, I suggest he relocate to Canada, France, or now, Britain. There are plenty of “leaders” driving those nations… right into the gutter.
While the media is continuing their six-month long “OMG, TRUMP RUSSIA!” marathon, real news outlets have uncovered this story. It’s nothing major; just a story detailing how the Obama administration illegally spied on Americans… for five years.
The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.
More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011.
Wait, the Obama administration both lied and violated the constitution? I. Am. Shocked.
The American Civil Liberties Union said the newly disclosed violations are some of the most serious to ever be documented and strongly call into question the U.S. intelligence community’s ability to police itself and safeguard American’s privacy as guaranteed by the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure.
The ACLU is claiming this, and they are not exactly a bastion of conservatism. Normally I would expect the media to cover an incident which contains actual, verifiable evidence of a crime, but they’re busy scouring the Earth for evidence of “OMG, TRUMP RUSSIA!”
Barack Obama reportedly demanded the Clinton campaign to concede the 2016 election; and he had to make the demand three times before Hillary took action.
A new book on the Clinton campaign contains the revelation that Clinton had to be pressured into conceding her loss on election night by President Barack Obama.
“POTUS doesn’t think it’s wise to drag this out,” White House political director David Simas is reported as saying to Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager. The campaign did not concede at that point.
Later, President Obama himself called and told Clinton, “You need to concede.” The president then repeated the demand to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta shortly thereafter.
Clinton still refused to make a concession speech until the next day, but remember, Hillary is a rational, mild-tempered woman who is fit to lead this country.
Barack Hussein Obama, the scourge of the Constitution, reportedly threw a hissy fit when hearing about President Trump’s allegation Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped.
Barack Obama was livid when he found out that Donald Trump accused him of wiretapping Trump Tower.
The former president thought Trump’s claim questioned both the integrity of the office and himself, people familiar with him told the Wall Street Journal.
Others told CNN that Obama was “irked, exasperated” and “in disbelief.” Another added that Trump’s predecessor “rolled his eyes” at the news.
Yet, nowhere in the article does it quote Obama’s denial. In fact, no one from the Obama regime has come out to expressly and specifically deny Trump’s allegations. Interesting.
President Trump claims his phones were tapped in the weeks before the November election. Trump is asserting the taps were executed by President Obama and his administration.
President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower days before the 2016 presidential election in a series of tweets.
Some Trump campaign officials allegedly had contact with Russian intelligence during the campaign. The Justice department officials cited intercepted phone calls between the campaign officials and the intelligence officers.
Obama administration aides also spread classified intelligence related to possible Trump campaign contact with Russia around the government. The effort centered on leaving a trail of alleged evidence for government investigators to follow.
Let me say this about that. Do I know for sure the Obama administration tapped Trump’s phones? Of course not. Do I believe Barack Obama would have no problem initiating an illegal wiretap? Absolutely.
The problem here – and in the country as a whole – is the Trump administration not only has to defend itself from Democrats and the MSM, but also the “deep state” operatives friendly to Obama, and the “principled conservatives” infesting the #NeverTrump regime.
From where I stand, the people suffering most from this insurgency are the American citizens.
