    Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said his old boss, former President Barack Obama, is worried about a lack of progress in Washington D.C. "[He's] viewing it from a distance, where he's writing a book, but I think that he's genuinely concerned," Earnest said on MSNBC on Friday. Earnest said Obama sees the White House and the federal government as "as an institution that could be used to advance the interest of the American public," and a lack of forward movement is a concern, "not just for the former president of the United States but Americans of both parties...

    Full title. Obama administration has given Iran $700 million each month since nuke deal signed, totaling over $10 billion “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.” There ought to be an investigation into whether Obama’s actions regarding Iran, where the mullahs...

    In his weekly address, President Obama on Saturday delivered a message to the nation for the new year. In his message, Obama reflected upon the “significant progress” he and his administration made over his two terms, citing Obamacare, the death of Osama bin Laden, and the Iran nuclear deal. He also praised the power of “diplomacy” for creating the Iran deal that “shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” fostered new relations with Cuba, and led to the Paris Climate Agreement. “We have made extraordinary progress as a country these past eight years,” said Obama. “To keep America moving forward is...

    With just over two weeks left in office, President Barack Obama wants you to know that for him it’s “always been about you.” “In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power, he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people. And over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead,” Obama said in a blog post about the speech he plans to deliver in Chicago on Jan. 10.

    (CNN) President Barack Obama will deliver his farewell address to the nation on January 10 from his home city of Chicago, the President announced in a statement Monday. "I'm thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here," Obama wrote. President Obama said he was following the precedent set by George Washington, who penned a farewell address to the American people over 220 years ago.
  • OBAMA’S BARBARIC UN RESOLUTION-Report: he’s cooking up another one

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | December 27, 2016 | P. David Hornik
    . UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which was passed on Friday and focuses on Israeli settlement activity, is even worse than its critics—who include Democratic lawmakers and the staunchly left-wing Central Conference of American (Reform) Rabbis (here and here)—have made it out to be. The resolution—whose passage was made possible by the U.S. abstention ordered by President Obama from Hawaii—is not just shameful, unfair, unbalanced, or destructive. It’s barbaric. Only in one clause—which is in the preamble, which has less force than the body of the text—does the resolution explicitly call on Palestinians to do anything. The preamble calls on...

    President Obama says he believes he would have won the 2016 presidential election had he been a candidate. . . . The president, whose second term ends next month and is, of course, forbidden to seek a third term, told his former senior adviser that based on the conversations he's had — even with "some people who disagreed with me" — people nationwide have said "the direction that you point towards is the right one."

    President Obama admitted he cried at a recent senior staff send-off dinner — and is now claiming that he’d be able to get re-elected if he had run for president again. “I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said in a “The Axe Files” podcast interview by former aide David Axelrod. “I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would...

    President Barack Obama defended his vision of America on David Axelrod's The Axe Files podcast, claiming he is confident "that if I had run again and articulated [this vision], I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it." The interview was the latest in Obama's post-election and pre-exit analysis, and he told his former senior adviser that despite Donald Trump winning, "what I would argue is, is that the culture actually did shift, that the majority does buy into the notion of a one America that is tolerant and diverse and open and full...

    The White House defended President Barack Obama over the U.S.’s abstention from a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements on the West Bank, saying Obama has done “more for Israel” than any other American president. Members of the White House National Security Council defended the abstention vote on a press call Friday insisting that the United States could not veto the resolution, which they claimed “erodes a foundation for a two state solution.” The White House said the abstention was consistent with past administrations and while the current administration believes construction of settlements on the West Bank would drum...

The U.S. hasn't used the program since 2011, but a top immigration adviser to President-elect Donald Trump has spoken of renewing it.

    In a recent discussion about political correctness and whether it has gone too far, President Barack Obama said it's a “tricky issue,” because "the definition of political correctness is all over the map.” At one point in his pre-vacation interview with NPR, Obama used himself as an example: “I had to live through controversies like the notion that I was trying to kill Christmas. Right? Well, where’d that come from? Well, I bet, you know, well, he said ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’. So, that, you know, that must be evidence of him either not being a Christian or...

    " By his own account, President Obama engaged in the complex cash transfer in order to end-run sanctions that prohibit the U.S. from having “a banking relationship with Iran.” The point of the sanctions is not to prevent banking with Iran; it is to prevent Iran from getting value from or through our financial system — the banking prohibition is a corollary. And the point of sanctions, if you happen to be the president of the United States sworn to execute the laws faithfully, is to follow them — not pat yourself on the back for keeping them in place...

Obama said Trump does not have the judgment, temperament or understanding to occupy the Oval Office. Obama scolded Trump for his "attack on a Gold Star family." "He is woefully unprepared," Obama stated. The president asked Republicans why do they keep endorsing him and what does it say about the Republican party that Trump is your standard bearer. This isn't an "episodic gaffe," this is daily and weekly, Obama said. Obama called on Republicans...

Obama is meeting Wednesday with police officers at the White House - the second such session this week. This time it will be expanded to include mayors, academics and civil rights activists.
