    Former President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail this fall in an effort to stem a series of Democratic electoral losses, according to a report in the HuffPost. Obama is expected to campaign for Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, a rare decision for a former president. The decision shows that Democrats appear helpless without Obama, hoping that he will help them recapture the magic.

    President Trump is making school lunches great again, or at least a lot better than they were during the Obama administration. Food service directors are applauding recent changes to federal school food regulations imposed on schools as part of Michelle Obama’s campaign against childhood obesity. […] Regulations imposed through the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act put strict limitations on calories, fat, sugar, salt, and other elements of foods served in public schools that participate in the national school lunch or breakfast programs. …

    What a difference a year makes. Last summer, the Obama administration not only supported a text at the U.N. Human Rights Council that included a call for access to “safe abortion where such services are permitted by national law” but also co-sponsored it, despite not then being a member of the Geneva-based body. On Thursday, when this year’s version of the resolution came around for a vote again, the Trump administration rejected the abortion reference, reminding the HRC that key international documents drawn up in the 1990s did not create a “right” to abortion. The broader resolution, dealing with eliminating...
  • Vanity - Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer, self-inflict political destruction on the Democrats.

    06/23/2017 6:51:23 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 18 replies
    The failing, defeated Democrat Party needs Obama & Clinton out campaigning, like they need a hole in the head. Obama has declared he will be actively campaigning for the Democrat candidate running for Governor of Virginia. I am overjoyed, that Obama joins the other Democrat nutcases, Clinton, Pelosi & Schumer, etc., in their active quest to destroy the entire Democrat Party politically. It should be interesting to witness the impact that Obama (who singlehandedly destroyed the Democrat Party over his eight years as POTUS, on the rank and file Democrats in Virginia. The governor race in Virginia was certainly almost...

    The text of the Senate’s 142-page Obamacare repeal bill had been public for just a few hours Thursday when the nation’s most influential private citizen weighed in — Barack Obama. The plan is “not a health care bill,” Obama declared in a 939-word message to his nearly 53 million followers on Facebook. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.” The 44th president did not mention his successor, Donald Trump, but his scathing criticism and urgent tone — imploring his supporters to speak out against the “fundamental meanness at the core...

    Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators. Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long...

    The Los Angeles Daily News ^ | June 21, 2017 | Elizabeth Chou
    Barack Obama could soon hear his name being uttered as part of Angelenos’ driving directions, with a Los Angeles city councilman proposing to name a street after him. Obama Boulevard could prove a relatively more innocuous role for the 44th president’s name than “Obamajam” — the oft-used term to refer to the anticipated congestion that accompanied his frequent fundraising trips to the Los Angeles area. City Council President Herb Wesson wants to rename a 3.4-mile segment of Rodeo Road, between Jefferson Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, after Obama because it would be a fitting addition to what is known in his...

    Both Melania Trump and Michelle Obama had modest upbringings: one is White, born in Yugoslavia. The other is Black, raised on the South Side of Chicago. When Melania married Donald Trump in 2005, he was already a real estate magnate. When Michelle married Barack Obama in 1992, he had just become a law school professor. Both Trump and Obama went on to become president of the United States, and both women who hail from different walks of life, found themselves thrust in the job of first lady. So who has worn the FLOTUS title best? I submit, Michelle, 53. Not...
  • Obama slams Senate's GOP-written health care bill [auto barf]

    President Barack Obama says the Senate's GOP-written health care bill will cause millions of families to lose health care coverage. Obama called Senate Republicans' health care bill a "massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America." He also says it "hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else." The former president says amending the GOP-written bill "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation." "Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get...

    Obama/Pakistan/John Brennan (Obama Mentor And CIA Obama Appointee). I learned so much today that my mind has been blown. I will never be the same, because for so very long I wanted to know what changed my America. How did the enemies of my Country gain access to the top of the political chain? Who is really trying to impeach Trump? How did three elite Pakistani spies, called the Awan Brothers, infiltrate the top levels of Government on Capitol Hill, work there for three years, steal secret intelligence, and escape back to Pakistan? The story begins with a radical young...

    Records relating to former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, including Trump campaign and transition officials, have been sealed at the Barack Obama Presidential Library. That means they are off-limits from the public for the next five years under the Presidential Records Act. In April, reports emerged that Rice had requested to “unmask” — or unveil the hidden names of — Trump transition officials who were caught up in surveillance of foreign targets. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explained on "Fox & Friends" that they received (a letter) informing them that their request for materials related to Rice's...

    Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday said that if the United States continues to place sanctions on Russia, Russia will respond "to make matters mutual" and place sanctions on the US. The US sanctions on Russia were enacted in response to Russia's occupation of Crimea, which began in 2014. "The sanctions which were applied in the past few years show that the guiding principle is mutuality. There's no reason to say it, even," Peskov said. "A long list of possible sanctions is currently being prepared by our expert staff." Despite the threat, Peskov did not say Russia would refuse...

    By using fired FBI Director James Comey to attack the new Republican administration, Democrats have opened up a legal can of worms for the Obama administration. Under sworn questioning, Comey has veered off the topic of President Trump and Russia and revealed several damning incidents in which his predecessor’s administration politically interfered in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And now the Senate will investigate Team Obama for obstruction of justice. Specifically, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced last week it will hold hearings to “examine then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s involvement in the Clinton email server investigation.” The findings of the powerful...

    It is no longer President Trump simply mouthing off when he claims that millions of illegals vote in our elections. A new study revealed that up to 5.7 million illegal immigrants likely voted in the 2008 election, meaning Mr. Trump was right when he said he lost the popular vote due to the large amount of illegal votes cast during the 2016 race. It is very likely that our current voting system is just as open to fraud and illegal voting last year as it was in 2008. Thank God for the Electoral College and the fact that the popular...

    Former President Barack Obama has issued a statement about ( Otto Warmbier), American college student who died this week, days after being released from (North Korea) in a coma after more than a year in captivity. “During the course of the Obama Administration, we had no higher priority than securing the release of Americans detained overseas,” Obama spokesman Ned Price said in the statement. “Their tireless efforts resulted in the release of at least 10 Americans from North Korean custody during the course of the Obama administration.”

    A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration. Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every...

    The former first lady says she's been hosting "bootcamps" for her friends to help whip them into shape and "be healthy together." [Snip] "When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends," Obama, 53, wrote. "It didn't matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first."
