    It's no secret that President Obama is an avid reader. But, he just got even more cred with book-lovers by praising everybody's favorite children's author: yep, Obama loves Dr. Seuss. In a Q&A session with interns, Obama admitted that "pretty much all the stuff you need to know is in Dr. Seuss." And of course, he's spot on. Obama won his way into the hearts of book nerds last year when he declared that reading novels made him a better citizen. (And considering he's the leader of the entire country, he's pretty much the best citizen there is.) Obama claims...

    A judge has ordered the federal government to hand over emails from Joe Biden's White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki after she allegedly admitted to "lying" to the media in one thread. The court requested a review of Psaki's communications regarding conversations she had about secret meetings the Obama-Biden administration held with the Islamic Republican of Iran.
  • Rochester (NY) man whose sentence was commuted by Obama pleads guilty to drug charges

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Rochester man whose sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama has pleaded guilty to new drug charges. Federal prosecutors say 46-year-old Ruben Bullock pleaded guilty to possessing with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and violating federal supervised release. Bullock's sentence for a previous drug conviction was commuted by President Obama in 2016 and was still on supervised release when he was arrested in January. Prosecutors say he was arrested when probation officers carried out probation searches on his houses, believing he was engaging in criminal activity. According to prosecutors, they found...

    Violent protesters descended on Portland late Saturday, an almost weekly occurrence, this time rioting over President Joe Biden's administration reopening a controversial migrant center designed to house minors who illegally entered the United States without their parents. What happened? Violent protesters, who were reportedly associated with Antifa, marched down the streets of Portland's Pearl District smashing cars and vandalizing businesses. More from KOIN-TV: Businesses in the district have been coated with graffiti decrying police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Demonstrators also broke windows at some businesses. A Chipotle on Northwest Lovejoy Street had its windows smashed out at around 9:30...

  • If nobody's home, who called out the Syria airstrike? This was puzzling, given that there seemed to be no immediate threat

    American Thinker ^ | 02/26/2021 | Monica Showalter
    Seven weeks into his presidency, senile Joe Biden surprised many by calling in a Syria airstrike.Which was puzzling, given that there seemed to be no immediate threat. And that's just for starters.It was billed as a strike on pro-Iran militants stationed in the region, and in retaliation for an earlier strike of theirs against a U.S. installation. Which seems a little eyebrow-raising, given Biden's eagerness to make nice with the mullahs. Even that explanation has skeptics who call the whole thing laughable.There are also those who think Biden is finishing up what President Obama started. You know, for the legacy...
  • Like Obama, Biden Promised to Let Americans Keep Their Health Plans. Is He Gearing Up to Break That Promise? (You can count on it that like a well trained dog he will do what his master tells him, which will be "Follow my example and do what I did")

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Josh Archambault.It is perhaps the most well-known blunder in American health care politics in the 21st century: “If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.” Yet, just a few years after President Obama uttered those infamous words, millions of Americans found themselves forced off the very health plans they were assured that they could keep.President Biden repeated the same claim on the campaign trail, promising voters, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” But already, it seems like he’s gearing up to repeat Obama’s mistake by breaking the...
  • Obama call for reparations for black Americans because the 'wealth of this country was built on the backs of slaves' - but says he couldn't get it done as president due to the 'politics of white resistance'

    Former President Barack Obama claimed reparations for black Americans are 'justified' but explained in his podcast with Bruce Springsteen that it was a 'nonstarter' during his presidency because of 'white resistence'. During his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama appeared to oppose reparations and argued that 'the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed.' Obama, 59, has launched an eight-episode podcast series called Renegades: Born in the USA with the 71-year-old rock legend, released through Spotify’s partnership with the Obama’s Higher Ground production company.

    Donald Trump was a bull in a china shop of a President. Or at least that’s the way the media, Democrats, academia, Hollywood and establishment Republicans painted him. And that’s the key to understanding Donald Trump... knowing him through his enemies. Voltaire said: “I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it." That prayer very much applies to Donald Trump. His enemies are ridiculous. They are failures at virtually everything they touch. From destroying American schools and cities and the military, Democrats have made themselves beyond...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the Biden administration Tuesday for reopening a temporary influx center for unaccompanied minors in Carrizo Springs, Texas and a shelter in Miami, Florida, where now-Vice President Kamala Harris protested outside of in June 2019. 'This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay - no matter the administration or party,' the New York Democrat tweeted. The Washington Post reported Monday that the emergency facility was being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 through 17.

    They sat down and held conversations for the eight-episode podcast over the course of a few days in a converted farmhouse on Springsteen's property. The first topic they discussed was why they felt like outsiders as kids, and "not surprisingly, the conversation then shifted to what has been the central dilemma of America since it's founding: the issue of race," Mr. Obama says.In episode 2, "American Skin: Race in the United States," which also dropped Monday, Spotify says they "reflect on their early experiences with race and racism and the uncomfortable conversations we need to have." In the 42-minute episode,...
  • Biden smashes Obama’s record for lowest number of counties won by successful presidential candidate (buried but relevant news)

    02/20/2021 7:34:07 AM PST · by Texas Eagle · 35 replies ^ | Nov. 24, 2020 | Frank Chung
    Joe Biden is on track to smash another of Barack Obama’s records. If Mr Biden takes office, he will have set a new low for the percentage of counties won by a successful US presidential candidate – just 15 per cent. The former Democratic Vice President appears to have secured an electoral college victory with just 477 out of the country’s 3143 counties and county-equivalents. Hillary Clinton, in her failed 2016 run, won 472 counties. Former President Obama ushered in the previous low in 2012, winning re-election with just 689 counties, or 22 per cent – breaking his own record...

    A venture capitalist and political fundraiser was sentenced today to 144 months in federal prison for falsifying records to conceal his work as a foreign agent while lobbying high-level U.S. government officials, evading the payment of millions of dollars in taxes, making illegal campaign contributions, and obstructing a federal investigation into the source of donations to a presidential inauguration committee.Imaad Shah Zuberi, 50, of Arcadia, California, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Virginia A.

    Barack Obama’s antipathy toward Israel during his two terms was unprecedented at the time, but it looks like Joe Biden is going to give him a run for his money. As PJM’s Robert Spencer noted earlier, Joe Biden “has pointedly refrained from calling the head of the government of our most reliable ally in the Middle East, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,” which could be an ominous warning that relations with our most important ally in the Middle East over the next four years will experience some major setbacks. In his first three weeks in office Biden has spoken with...

    President Joe Biden on Feb. 14 urged Congress to strengthen existing laws concerning gun ownership on the third anniversary of the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida. “The Parkland students and so many other young people across the country who have experienced gun violence are carrying forward the history of the American journey. It is a history written by young people in each generation who challenged prevailing dogma to demand a simple truth: we can do better. And we will,” Biden said in a statement. “This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed...

    New Maryland bill would rename 'Indian Head Highway' to 'President Barack Obama Highway' © Getty Images State senators in Maryland recently introduced legislation that seeks to rename Indian Head Highway after former President Obama. Senate Bill 213, introduced by Democratic state Sens. Arthur Ellis and Obie Patterson, would require the Maryland State Highway Administration to designate the highway, also known by some as Maryland Route 210, as “the President Barack Obama Highway.” The change would cost roughly $12,500 to cover the costs for the design, construction and installation of the signs for the highway, which runs through parts of Maryland...

    When Barack Obama ran in 2008, I was virulently opposed to his candidacy. I wasn’t a huge McCain fan, but at least I knew he had America’s best interests at heart, something I never felt about Obama. Four years later I had issues with Romney, but for similar reasons, I voted for him. Once Obama was in office, I disagreed with almost everything he did for eight years, whether Obamacare, DACA, GM, DADT, or virtually everything race-related. I disagreed with his trading for Bowie Bergdahl, his pardon of Chelsea Manning, and his commutation of the sentence of FLAN terrorist Oscar...

    A 12-year-old Texas boy who felt “sad and lonely” amid the coronavirus lockdown measures hanged himself, his father revealed in a report about the tragedy. Hayden Hunstable, of Aledo, took his own life three days before his 13th birthday in April 2020 because he didn’t know how to deal with the isolation and depression when the emerging disease caused a nationwide shutdown, the UK’s Metro reported. The boy’s 9-year-old sister, Kinlee, found him hanged in his bedroom, according to the outlet. Hayden’s heartbroken dad, Brad, 42, spoke to Metro to help prevent future suicides among the nation’s youth. “COVID killed...
