    “Joe, don’t call me, I’ll call you.” That had to be the essence of the last phone call between Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Otherwise the former president would have endorsed his loyal former vice president, a man who served under him for eight years, not to mention running together in two national political campaigns. The pair of politicians gave the appearance of being buddies when they were in the White House. They often hugged. Obama said Biden was “a great vice president.” Biden said Obama was “a brother to me, a best friend forever.” But when the time came...
  • EXCLUSIVE: 'This stings!' How Obama saw Trump's victory as a 'personal insult'

    The former president went from being confident that Hillary Clinton would beat Donald Trump to seeing it as a 'personal insult' that she lost. Obama could not believe the American people had 'turned on him' for a man he had written off as a 'cartoon'. As the dust settled Obama told his family that 'this hurts' and blamed Clinton who 'brought many of her troubles on herself' and ran a 'scripted, soulless campaign'. The eye-popping details are in the new edition of 'Obama: The Call Of History' by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker.
  • Why Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Tweeted About ‘Easter Worshippers’

    Sometimes, a few sentences tell you more about a person — and, more importantly, an ideology — than a learned thesis. That is the case with tweets from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama two days ago in response to the mass murder of more than 300 Christians and others in Sri Lanka. Their tweets are worth serious analysis because they reveal a great deal about the left. Of course, they reveal a great deal about Clinton and Obama, too, but that doesn’t interest me. And that, too, is important. Many Americans — especially conservatives and “independents” — are more interested...

    At 18 years old, Zion Williamson is already getting used to being the biggest name in the building. That was not the case for Wednesday’s Duke-North Carolina showdown at Cameron Indoor Stadium. A number of big names showed up for game, none bigger than noted basketball fan and former President Barack Obama, who was met by a shrieking swath of Cameron Crazies who greeted him with high fives before the game.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama tied with former Vice President Joe Biden as the top choice among Democratic voters when asked who should be the party's nominee in 2020. A Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday found that 25 percent of Democrats said they would back Obama in the party primary over nine other declared or potential candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

    OAKLAND, Calif. ― Former President Barack Obama spoke Tuesday about how to “be a man” and the need to combat stereotypes of masculinity that “trap” young men, specifically young men of color. “All of us have to recognize that being a man is first and foremost being a good human. That means being responsible, working hard, being kind, respectful, compassionate,” Obama said at aconference for hisMy Brother’s Keeper initiative in Oakland.

    Hopes for timely groundbreaking for the "Obama Presidential Center" in Chicago suffered a blow yesterday in a federal courtroom. A federal judge appointed to the bench by Barack Obama gave the go-ahead for a lawsuit that will delay, and quite possibly end, the plan to build and operate the monument as a center for extolling the sheer wonderfulness of Barack and Michelle Obama. The lawsuit, brought by Protect Our Parks, challenges the legality of handing over 20 acres of irreplaceable lakefront park land for 99 years to a private interest group, the Obama Foundation, which enjoys tax deductibility for donations...

    A judge nominated by former President Obama rendered a decision Tuesday that he won’t like. A lawsuit by an advocacy group known as Protect Our Parks can go forward. They are trying to block his presidential library in Chicago. The Associated Press reports that U.S. District Judge John Robert Blakey ruled Tuesday that a lawsuit from an advocacy group accusing the city of illegally transferring public land to a private entity would not be dismissed. The Hill reported a similar lawsuit stopped Star Wars’ George Lucas from building a museum on public land. IT’S A CON GAME The lawsuit by...

    The NBA champion Golden State Warriors missed out on a White House visit for the second year in a row, meeting instead Thursday with former President Barack Obama rather than President Trump. Pro sports teams are traditionally invited to the White House after winning championships, but Trump rescinded the offer to the Warriors in September 2017 after stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durantmade critical remarks. Curry and Durant said their team wasn't planning on visiting Trump anyway. During their visit to Washington last year, the team instead toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture, accompanied by local schoolchildren. An Instagram photo posted by the Warriors’...

    America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left-wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans...

    Former President Obama took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his New Year's message, saying "we've got a lot of work to do." “In 2018 people stepped up and showed up like never before,” Obama said on Twitter. “Keep it up in 2019,” he continued. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I’ll be right there with you. Happy New Year, everybody!” Over the weekend, the former president also shared a few stories about some of the young leaders he said inspired him in 2018. Obama ended his weekend series of tweets with the hope that his followers...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama offered a candid assessment of the reality of trying to balance a marriage and a career and the idea of ‘leaning in.'” “Marriage still ain’t equal, y’all. It ain’t equal. I tell women that whole ‘you can have it all’—mmm, nope, not at the same time,” Mrs. Obama said Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night. “That’s a lie. And it’s not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn’t work all the time.”

    Former President Obama met with former President George H.W. Bush in Houston on Tuesday prior to a speaking engagement at Rice University, Bush's spokesman said. "The two had a very pleasant and private visit at the Bush residence, where they rekindled what was already a very warm friendship," Bush spokesman Jim McGrath wrote on Twitter. Obama was scheduled to speak at a forum at the Baker Institute at Rice University on Tuesday night. Obama and his wife, Michelle, saw Bush in April when they attended Barbara Bush's funeral in Houston. George H.W. Bush, 94, has dealt with health issues in...

    Barack Obama hinted that Trump's 'mommy issues' are part of what makes him incapable of fixing the nation's problems. He told the audience at the Obama Foundation summit in Chicago that the world 'badly needs remaking' insisting fixing issues around climate change, education, agriculture and so on are not nearly as complicated as they are made out to be. Without mentioning Trump by name, Obama said 'the reason we don't do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues.' Trump has previously credited his mother Mary MacLeod Trump, who died in 2000, for...

    The midterms weren't a blue wave, but they weren't shark fin soup for Republicans either, given that they lost the House by a small margin. That said, the big loser who stands out here is hard-campaigning President Obama, the guy who thought he was the star of the Democratic Party and who, throwing the tradition of former presidents staying aloof from politics out the window, campaigned hard, long, and loud, for Democrats in this midterm. Turns out the ones he fought the hardest for lost. Now he stands exposed as politically irrelevant, powerless, an embarrassment. Sorry 'bout that legacy thing,...

    Is there anything more pathetic than an ex-president, who ought to be writing his memoirs and establishing a genuine presidential library for the study of his administration, is instead campaigning at a midterm like he's still running for president? Well, here he is, President Obama, making a fool of himself: Vid at link As Drudge Report notes, citing American Mirror, his voice is actually cracking. Which I suppose happens when you campaign too much before half-empty stadiums and union halls. The man's time has passed, yet it's obvious he's desperate to still stay relevant, so now he's sounding crazy.

    Obama slammed Republicans for their aggressive stance against migrants trying to enter the U.S. during his speech rallying for Florida Democrats in Miami.'They're telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away. They're even taking our brave troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border. The men and women of our military deserve better than that. So they're just constant fear mongering to distract from the record,' he added.

    Former President Barack Obama has recorded dozens of last-minute messages for Democratic candidates across the country, in a below-the-radar push to get voters to the polls ahead of next week’s midterm elections. Obama has recorded more than 50 messages — some robo-calls, some videos that campaigns can spread through Facebook or text messages. A few have already been sent to voters, and others are likely to be sent in the final days before Tuesday’s election. “In the months leading up to the midterms — when he could have an impact — he has been making an aggressive case for Democratic...

    President Barack Obama will return to Chicago this weekend to hold a get-out-the-vote rally. Ironically, he is one reason Republicans have a fighting chance to retain a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday. That is because in 2010, Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — Obamacare — over the objections of the majority of the voting public, and without a single Republican vote. The ensuing backlash saw Nancy Pelosi booted out of the Speaker’s chair, and also lifted hundreds of Republicans into state legislative seats. The following year, Republicans largely controlled the re-drawing of congressional...
