  • Barack Obama Is Still Dressing More Presidential Than The Current President

    44's wardrobe passes the litmus test for a third term Heads were scratched when George W. Bush rode to a second term in 2004. Despite Iraq, and despite having the linguistic capability of a GCSE creative writing class, the 43rd president clung onto another four years. That's because, allegedly, he was the man most voters would prefer to have a beer with: 57 percent of them according to a Zogby/Williams poll in the autumn of that year. And though his time in the White House is up, Barack Obama is still dressing the part of post-office beer buddy, too. At...
  • Barack Obama Swipes at Donald Trump Habit of Watching TV and Social Media

    Former President Barack Obama implicitly criticized President Donald Trump’s media habits in a speech on Wednesday. During a Splunk tech conference, Obama said it was helpful as president to have a diverse staff offering a wide range of advice on the issues of the day. “The other thing that is helpful is not watching TV or reading social media,” he added pointedly, according to Axios. He warned about people living in “filter bubbles” of information, made worse by social media. “That’s not healthy for a democracy and it’s not healthy between countries,” he said. “That’s how wars get started and...

    Tuesday's election will not only be a contest between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz but also between their American pollsters. John McLaughlin stood beside Netanyahu in a video he posted on Friday explaining why Otzma Yehudit would not cross the 3.25% electoral threshold. In explaining why he was so sure, Netanyahu pointed at McLaughlin and said that he was the pollster for US president Donald Trump. Blue and White's American strategist Joel Benenson also made the news this past week, when Netanyahu accused him of being behind a false report in Politico accusing Israel...

    2020 Democrat hopeful Joe Biden told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert Wednesday night that he would nominate his former ‘boss’ Barack Obama to the US Supreme Court. “Would you appoint him [Obama] to the Supreme Court?” Colbert asked Biden. “Hell…yes!” Biden said with a creepy grin on his face. “I don’t think he’d do it but…he’s fully qualified.”

    Former first lady Michelle Obama encouraged her followers to remember during the back-to-school season that girls around the world have limited access to attend school. Obama shared a photo from her school days as part of #WorldChairtyDay, while urging others to post #BackToSchool photos, support the Girls Opportunity Alliance and donate to its GoFundMe page. "As students here in the U.S. head back to school, let's remember that more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world don't have that opportunity," she tweeted Thursday. The Girls Opportunity Alliance is run by the Obama Foundation. They reported that out of 750...
  • Dem Rep. Connolly: ‘Eats Away’ at Trump That Obama ‘Added Luster to the Presidency’(LOL!)

    Thursday on CNN’s “Right Now,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) said President Donald Trump criticizes his predecessor former President Barack Obama because it “eats away” at Trump that Obama “added luster to the presidency.” Keilar asked, “The president referenced former President Obama several times yesterday when he had this extended Q & A session on the south lawn with reporters. He blamed him on a variety of topics. He does this a lot, but there seemed to be this uptick of it yesterday. Why do you think he does that? Connolly said, “Well, I think the contrast bothers him. President Obama...

    It sure pays to be a DC grifter. The Obamas are reportedly purchasing a 29-acre, 7,000 square foot $14.85 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. The home is currently owned by Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck. The Martha’s Vineyard estate (pictured below) was previously listed for $22 million, but the Obamas are paying less than the current listing price according to “multiple island sources.”

    Summit News ^ | 21 AUG 2019 | Steve Watson
    Ahead of the 2020 election, the Obamas are set to release a documentary via Netflix that has been described by Politico as anti-Trump. The movie, scheduled to be released this week, titled American Factory, focuses on the economy in the heartland of the US. The documentary, which debuts on Netflix on August 21, never mentions President Donald Trump by name—but its message is clear: Trump’s promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, they’re going to look nothing...

    President Trump on Friday lashed out at Democrats over their ongoing investigations into his administration, suggesting there should instead be probes into former President Obama's book deal and other activities under his predecessor. "They want to investigate, they want to go fishing and I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing," Trump said of Democrats during an Oval Office gathering to announce an agreement with Guatemala. "It’s a disgrace," he continued. "We want to find out what happened the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked into me. From day one they’ve looked into everything we’ve...

    “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...

    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...

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.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

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...
