    The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is reportedly planning to destroy a number of firearms from Operation Fast and Furious ten years after the scandal took place. In a letter to ATF Director Steven Dettelbach, incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan is asking that the firearms be preserved. "Yesterday, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) notified us that it intends to destroy the firearms associated with the botched Operation Fast and Furious. I strongly urge you to reconsider this decision and request that you preserve this evidence," Jordan wrote. "Although the ATF apparently intends to...
  • Obama Rips Herschel Walker: We All Know People That Say Crazy Stuff, Like "Uncle Joe," But We Don't Give Them Serious Responsibilities

    At a rally for U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in Atlanta on Thursday, former President Barack Obama took aim at his Republican opponent Herschel Walker for saying "crazy stuff" like talking about vampires and werewolves and claiming the two played basketball. "Since the last time I was here, apparently, he also claimed that he used to let me beat him at basketball," Obama told the audience. "But then he admitted that we have never actually met. So I guess this was more of an imaginary whooping that I laid on him."
  • WATCH: Did Obama Just Throw Shade at Joe Biden?

    On Thursday, Barack Obama went down to Georgia lookin’ for a soul to steal to campaign for Raphael Warnock, and–in what appears to be an attempt to mock Herschel Walker–he may have had a Freudian slip and threw shade at Joe Biden. “You know, some folks in our lives who—we don’t wish them ill will—they say crazy stuff. We’re all like, well, you know, Uncle Joe, you know what happened to him. You know… it’s okay. They’re part of the family. But, you don’t give them serious responsibilities.”
  • Amazon’s Alexa confirms Michelle Obama “was born Michael LaVaughn Robinson." [PolitiFact says this is untrue]

    Politifact ^ | 11/15/2022 | Ciara O'Rourke
    No, Alexa doesn’t confirm Michelle Obama was born Michael. This is Pants on Fire! Alexa gives Michelle Obama’s maiden name when asked if the former first lady “started out as “Michael.” Michelle Obama is not a transgender woman. Though we’ve previously debunked claims that former first lady Michelle Obama is a transgender woman who was born Michael LaVaughn Robinson, that former President Barack Obama referred to her as his "husband, Michael," and that this photo shows her as a man before they married, a video in a recent Instagram post appears to show Alexa suggesting otherwise. "Alexa?" someone can be...

    (Nov. 22, 2022) — On Sunday and Monday, for those following him on Twitter, Barack Obama’s purported older half-brother Malik caused quite a stir. On Sunday at one point, he tweeted a graphic of the cover of a book he published in 2020 titled, “Big Bad Brother from Kenya.” On the same day, however, he suggested he and Barack are not brothers. The tweet gained the attention of WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com founder Mike Volin, who pointed it out to CDR Charles F. Kerchner, Jr. In a responsive blog post, Kerchner featured not only the tweet, but also his related research into the...

    Monday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to testify for the soon-to-be-defunct January 6 Committee because he was going to run for president and did not want to “alienate” the so-called Trump base. “Why do you think he’s wrong when he says Congress has no right to his testimony?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes said. “Because it’s — you know, at its base, the most basic, it’s not about what Congress has a right to — indeed, we do have a right to his testimony,” Schiff replied. “It’s what is his responsibility...

    Former President Obama said on Thursday that voters learned from Democrats’ losses in the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections that a party losing control of Congress in the midterms can limit a what a president can accomplish. Obama told Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” that voters might have thought during those two midterms that the stakes were not high because he was the president.

    CitizenFreePress, a heavily trafficked news aggregation site, was suspended from Twitter this week after sharing a video of former president Barack Obama campaigning in Ohio in 2008. Obama is seen in the video telling a crowd in Philadelphia, Ohio boasting about Democrats controlling the election voting machines. Barack Obama: “I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we got Democrats in charge of the machines. But look, I come from Chicago so I want to be honest. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past, sometimes Democrats have too. Whenever people...

    WASHINGTON (TND) — Former First Lady Michelle Obama has reportedly revealed that she decided to straighten her hair during her husband's presidency because Americans were still "just getting adjusted" to the idea of having a Black family in the White House. Speaking with former TV show host Ellen DeGeneres at Washington D.C.'s Warner Theatre on Tuesday, Michelle Obama claimed she believed people in the United States "weren't ready" for her natural hair, according to The Washington Post. Michelle recalled considering styling her hair into braids, and then thought "nope, they’re not ready for it," the former first lady said during...

    The Light We Carry is supposedly a guide for all women, everywhere, in their 'ongoing journey to "becoming"'. We must embrace our true potential, she suggests, despite being thwarted by prejudice and, yes, dastardly men. Michelle offers such sage reflections as 'fear can keep us safe, but fear can keep us stuck'. Eh? 'We practise, we learn, learn and practise, we make mistakes then start over again,' she writes. If we 'recognise our light, we become empowered by it'. She also hails the joys of knitting to find lasting peace. The book is printed in 40 languages. Let's hope one...

    Georgia’s Senate runoff is three weeks away, and Democrats are hoping big names like former President Obama could help put incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) over the top against GOP candidate Herschel Walker. While Obama has not officially announced a return to the Peach State, one source said the former president is likely to return to the campaign trail for Warnock, just as he did last month. “If anyone can help seal the deal in a state like Georgia, it’s Obama,” one ally said. “There’s nobody on either side like him.” During Obama’s visit, he appeared before a crowd of...

    Just how effective have Western sanctions been against Iran — and for that matter, Russia? The US has spearheaded efforts to deny both countries access to Western technology, especially that with dual-use capabilities for military purposes. In the case of Iran, those sanctions and trade restrictions go back decades.And according to an exclusive from the Wall Street Journal today, they appear significantly ineffective. Ukrainian and Western experts have begun looking at the remains of Iranian drones that targeted infrastructure in the Russian invasion, and a lot of the parts come from Western supply chains:New intelligence collected from downed Iranian drones...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama said Monday on CBS’s “The Late Show” that former President Donald Trump was unqualified to be president and his language and behavior brought the chaos of the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Colbert said, “I don’t think you and I have had a chance to talk about this yet, but there you are, you and your husband, after your eight years of service, you are citizens at home, watching January 6 unfold. Like everybody else but of course, these are your colleagues. This is the place you used to work. You know those people, that...

    An old video of Barack Obama has emerged that shows the former president boasting that “we got Democrats in charge of the [voting] machines.” The newly-discovered old video appeared of Obama giving a campaign speech at Kent State University during the 2008 election. Obama sought to ease concerns about potential Republican victories by telling the crowd of Democrat voters in Ohio that they needn’t worry. He explained that Democrats control the election voting machines in Ohio. The then-Illinois U.S. senator continued by claiming that Republicans “have monkeyed around with elections in the past” before admitting that “sometimes Democrats have too.”...

    The United States’ largest rabbinic public policy organization says the Biden administration is facilitating terrorism against Israel by injecting nearly half a billion dollars into Palestinian government organizations that incite violence against the Jewish state. The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), a pro-Israel advocacy group representing more than 2,000 American rabbis, slammed the State Department on Monday for its allotment of U.S. tax dollars to the Palestinian government, which is funding a program known as "pay to slay," in which money is funneled to convicted terrorists and their families.

    Michelle Obama says six years after Donald Trump’s White House win, his victory “still hurts.” “It felt like something more something much uglier than a simple political defeat,” Obama said in a clip from the audio version of her forthcoming book, “The Light we Carry,” published Monday by NPR. The part-self-help book, part-memoir is poised to be released on Tuesday. “I couldn’t help but return to the choice our country had made to replace Barack Obama with Donald Trump. What were we to take from that?” Obama said. “Barack and I always tried to operate on the principles of hope...

    Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are hosting back-to-back conferences about disinformation in the days following Donald Trump's 'big announcement.' Bush, 76, will host his The Struggle for Freedom conference in Dallas on November 16, while Obama's democracy conference will be held in New York City on the 17th.
