    Republican Donald Trump held a press conference Wednesday morning to respond to the recent attacks and lies by Democrats and the liberal press.Trump COMPLETELY OWNED the press.Trump destroyed Obama: I think President Obama has been the most ignorant president in our history. His views of the world, as he says, don't jive and the world is a mess. You look what is happening with migration, with Syria, with Libya, with Iraq, with everything he's touched. He has been a disaster as a president. He will go down as one of the worst presidents in the history of our country. It...
  • US election: Obama tells Democrats to be scared of Trump

    07/27/2016 8:53:31 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 8 replies
    Democrats should be "running scared" at the challenge posed by Donald Trump, President Obama has said. After launching his candidacy as an outsider last year, Mr Trump went on to overcome all rivals to clinch the Republican presidential nomination. Some polls have since indicated he is leading Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. Asked by NBC News if Mr Trump could win, Mr Obama said: "I've seen all kinds of crazy stuff happen." "I think anybody who goes into campaigns not running scared can end up losing," he added.

    “What difference at this point does it make?” When Hillary uttered those words, she knew something the rest of us didn’t. If populists behind Donald Trump have any hope of reclaiming America, it is absolutely crucial that they find out why When Hillary Rodham Clinton turned stomachs with the statement “What difference at this point does it make?” at the January 23, 2013 Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing into the Benghazi scandal, she was, in effect, declaring her 2016 presidency.

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

    Obama’s Final Revenge: The Accidental Destruction of Hillary Clinton She’s forced to defend his legacy and his happy talk. But Americans aren’t happy. By Ben Shapiro — July 27, 2016 Hillary Clinton is in serious trouble. She’s not in trouble because of the massive competence of Donald Trump. She’s in trouble because she is terrible at the game her husband invented: the game of “who cares more about people like you.” In March 1992, Bill Clinton met a member of an AIDS-activism group at an event at a nightclub in New York City. Attacked by the activist for not doing...

Unlike the lame duck occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., I have little experience as a community organizer.

  • Racially charged feud over Senate race in California spills into Democratic convention

    California’s racially charged all-Democrat Senate race has spilled onto the Democratic National Convention as the candidates continued to feud over President Obama’s endorsement of one over the other. Attorney General Kamala Harris, the recipient of Mr. Obama’s blessing, said Monday that she thought Rep. Loretta Sanchez should apologize to the president for suggesting that race played a role in the endorsement. Ms. Harris is black and Ms. Sanchez Hispanic. “I find it very troubling, and I think that that is not the voice or perspective of a leader,” Ms. Harris told Fox11 in Los Angeles. “Especially in these times, where...

The policy changes, which officials said will go into effect in the next few months, will not apply to all Central Americans seeking entry into the U.S. They will, however, expand eligibility for one key program, the Central American Minors program, and provide more assistance...

    Whenever President Obama feels defensive, he likes to talk about how the world has become more safe under his watch (with the implication that it's due to his own wise leadership). We first heard him speak that way during the summer of 2014, when the world seemed to be unraveling and critics were blaming him for the sad state of affairs. Obama said, "The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is...

    Terrorism fears appear to be pushing more Americans to buy guns. FBI data show this was the busiest June ever for firearms dealers. Tom Hand continues to be busy–at his gun and pawn shop in Daphne. “People are concerned with their own safety and are still interested in carrying guns for their own personal defense outside of their home,” said Tom Hand with Goldmine Pawn. The Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando last month marked the single largest mass shooting in American history.

    Instead, Obama has ignored the people of Iran, a population friendly to the United States and its ideals. His administration even declared the 2009 Green Movement - a popular protest against a probably-rigged presidential election - an internal affair of Iran that warranted no American input. He has failed to do anything for the Iranians, and has even tacitly betrayed them by negotiating with and legitimizing their theocratic government. The catastrophic nuclear deal with the rulers of Iran represented the latest in Obama's long series of failures in relation to the country. While it is true that the economic sanctions...

    President Obama is standing by his decision to ramp up the admission of Syrian refugees to the United States even after three refugees from Islamic countries attacked people in Germany over the last week. The 10,000 Syrian refugees the president wants to admit by October are subjected to more thorough screening and vetting than anyone trying to enter the United States, White House spokesman Josh Earnest stressed Monday. "That's why the president has confidence ramping up the number of refugees admitted to the United States," Earnest told reporters during his daily briefing.

    Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined. This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans. However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on election day. People who expected the election of President Barack Obama to lead to racial healing and a post-racial society failed to take account of the political reality that racial healing and a post-racial society would, at a minimum, reduce black voter turnout.

    PHILADELPHIA — When President Obama takes the stage here this week to begin his monthslong political farewell, it will mark a bittersweet moment for Democrats. Mr. Obama is not going to be missed only because he is beloved by the faithful. The president has also fulfilled two longstanding if often elusive goals of his party: He has largely transcended the traditional moderate-versus-liberal split, papering over internal divisions. And he passed a sweeping health care law. But without the unifying presence of Mr. Obama in the White House, or the organizing aim of expanding health care, it is unclear who will...

Speaking at a Washington, D.C., book store last Friday, Ayers explained that despite living near Obama in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood and crossing paths many times during their activism, he never viewed the future president as a dedicated “leftist” like himself. The remarks came in response to a question about whether Ayers ever doubted Obama’s credentials as a true “progressive” or “man...

    GOP Nominates Trump for President Erdogan channels Hitler with fake coup LIVE Saturday (7/23) 8 AM EST!!! This week, the GOP finally made it official. Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for President. Despite incredible opposition from the establishment and globalists, Trump bested them all and now represents the people in his quest for the Presidency. Meanwhile in Turkey, Recep Erdogan appears to have orchestrated an abortive coup, and is using it as a pretext for mass arrests and persecution. Kemalism (i.e., Turkish secularism) is facing a dire crisis from the megalomaniacal Turkish leader – who is both an...

    Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks exposed thousands of emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee. Friday afternoon, users noted, "#DNCLeaks" was trending, with more than 250,000 tweets about it on the platform. By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site's "trending" bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as "#DNCLeak" after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage. "Don't normally tweet political things, but why would @twitter pull the #DNCleaks from trending at #1. Sounds like censorship to me,"...

    As if Americans needed another reason to rein in the out-of-control government in Washington, D.C., jihadist Syrian “rebels” backed and “vetted” by the Obama administration and neocons in Congress beheaded a 12-year-old boy. The barbaric beheading of the impoverished child was perpetrated on video that surfaced this week, with smiling jihadists funded and armed by the U.S. government shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they sever the child's head. According to the Obama-backed terror group behind the horror, the boy was suspected of being a “spy” for the government. The group, which received heavy military equipment and funding from Obama, claimed it...

    President Obama took issue with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's portrayal of a country in crisis, calling it "dangerously skewed from reality." "By highlighting a few incidents of terrorist attacks Mr. Trump overlooks the fact that only a small minority of people die at the hands of these misguided individuals," Obama asserted. "The reality is that the vast majority of people in this country still die of old age. A more sensible approach was voiced by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls who calmly advised that we learn to live with these attacks." "Trump's call for 'law and order' undermines my...

    It appears as though Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who is above the law these days. Apparently President Obama and Loretta Lynch really know how to play the shell-game. One would think Lynch would be watching her behavior after the appearance of a conflict of interest in meeting privately on an airplane with Bill Clinton right before the final Benghazi report came out, but apparently not. President Obama. along with the top law officer of the United States, Loretta Lynch, as the Attorney general made life extremely difficult for a veteran law enforcement officer and process server to deliver...

    A federal judge has ruled in favor of a Missouri lawmaker who cited religious objections while challenging the inclusion of birth control coverage in his government-provided health insurance. State Sen. Paul Wieland said Friday that the ruling, while applying only to his family, could serve as a guide for others seeking to challenge the application of a section of President Barack Obama’s health care law that requires insurers to include coverage of contraceptives. “I think this sets a precedent, so that if anybody else has religious convictions and they find these drugs offensive … they can use this as a...

    As news reports of a gun massacre in Munich crossed the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, the President of the United States was cracking jokes. Barack Obama delivered a brief update to reporters at the White House about the still-unfolding shooting rampage that left the German city on lockdown. Eight are confirmed dead, and 10 injured. The president was speaking to law enforcement agents at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, adjacent to the White House. But as cameras rolled on the somber moment, Obama grinned and chuckled – and drew laughs from his audience – about his elder daughter Malia leaving...

    President Barack Obama vetoed a bill Friday that would cap the taxpayer-funded expense accounts of former presidents. Obama said he supports the bill’s goal, but he sent the measure back to Congress because it would immediately end salaries and benefits to staffers carrying out the official duties of former presidents. He says the measure doesn’t provide enough time for these employees to be moved to another payroll.Obama says the bill would also interfere with the Secret Service’s ability to protect ex-presidents. …
