How out-of-touch is Barack Obama? Juan Williams’ puff piece shows that Obama’s narcissism knows no boundaries. In the article, Williams quotes Obama as saying “I would not have expected someone who has complete disdain for ordinary people to be able to get attention and then the following from those very same people” about Donald Trump.

That’s proof that Obama hasn’t figured the American blue collar worker out. That’s why they elected President Trump. President Trump doesn’t disdain blue collar people. He didn’t just put in place that helped their families. President Trump put in place policies that started restoring their entire communities. Many of these communities were decimated by President Obama’s policies. Today, with Biden promising to return to President Obama’s environmental policies, these communities’ prosperity hangs in the balance.

He drew a picture of the current political landscape in which “issues, facts, policies per se don’t matter as much as identity and wanting to beat the other guy … The current media environment adds to that greatly. This democracy doesn’t work if we don’t have an informed citizenry.”

In the Atlantic interview, he said with alarm, far-fetched conspiracy theories are circulated until some people “genuinely believe the Democratic Party is a front for a pedophile ring.” The power of right-wing media to distort reality “is the single biggest threat to our democracy,” Obama added.

Wow! If the Epsteins and Weinsteins fit, if their enablers look the other way, then you must admit that Democrats are perverts or enablers.

Barack Obama is a total jackass, especially for a former president. He’s always thought that he’s the nation’s moral arbiter. That’s why the nation rejected Obamaism in 2016.

Instead of maintaining the Trump foreign policy, Joe Biden essentially said that the US is heading back to the bad old days of the Obama administration. The Trump administration’s foreign policy was known for standing up to ISIS, China, Iran and North Korea.

NoKo hasn’t tested a nuclear device in 3 years. Further, they haven’t fired an ICBM in 3.5 years. Trump stood up to China while negotiating a bilateral trade policy with them. He imposed tariffs on China to let them know he wasn’t fooling around. The trade deal reflects President Trump’s America First priorities. Unfortunately, Biden plans on changing that to an internationalist, America leads-from-behind position.

In his presentation yesterday, Biden said “It’s a team that reflects that America is back. Ready to lead the world, not retreat from it. They embody my core beliefs that America is strongest when it works with its allies. Collectively, this team has secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory — made possible through decades of experience working with our partners.”

That’s what pacifist gibberish sounds like. When he said “this team has secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory”, what he’s referring to is that John Kerry embarrassed the USA while negotiating the JCPOA and the Paris Climate Accord. Compare those ‘accomplishments’ with President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner negotiating normalization agreements between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.

Let’s not forget that ISIS started on Biden’s and Kerry’s watch because they pulled out of Iraq too soon. Further, Russia invaded Crimea on Biden’s and Kerry’s watch, too.

The world has changed since Biden last held office. Almost 75,000,000 voters expect politicians and diplomats to make smart decisions. Biden, Blinken and Kerry have gotten most things wrong during their careers. The question now is whether voters will hold Biden accountable for his routinely foolish decisions. As Robert Gates once said in his book, Biden has been wrong about every major foreign policy issue over the past 40+ years. Unfortunately, I don’t expect that to change, mostly because he hasn’t noticed that he’s made any mistakes.

Disgusting Double Standards—When They Go High, We Go Low!!
By Ramblin’ Rose

When the only theme from MSM is the futile and misdirected efforts of our duly elected President Trump in 2016 and 2020, the news of the day has little appeal. It’s sad that the Left has yet to recognize that Trump won in 2016, much less in 2020. (Yes, we continue to trust that Truth will prevail in the saga of the 2020 stolen election, as affirmed by up to 36% of Democrats as well as some 80% of the Republicans.) Tonight, I stumbled across an article from the Western Journal about President Obama challenging the signatures of his potential opponents, I was temporarily stunned.

The Left, in general, claims that they take the high road against the attacks from the Right. Wrong, they eat their own if it means that they can advance their own political (and financial) aspirations. They do NOT take the high road…they plow through.

While tonight’s source came from the more conservative source, they referred to a definitely more liberal source—Chicago media. They noted: “A Chicago Tribune article published in April 2007 tells the unflattering truth. Tribune reporters David Jackson and Ray Long wrote that rather than winning the race “by leveling the playing field,” Obama won “by clearing it.”

That is the community activist that we know all too well. (He has written three books about his own attributes and achievements that some critics call “pure fiction.”) In the trip down memory lane, we are reminded of the shenanigans that Barak employed against his own in Chicago in his race for Congress.

When Rep. Mel Reynolds was convicted of sex crimes, a special election was to be held to fit his congressional seat—a seat that Illinois state senator Alice Palmer wanted to fill. She told the reporters that Obama had asked her if she would consider filing for her own senate seat as a fallback option. She indicated to Obama that that was not her intention.

Jackson and Long confirmed the conversation between Palmer and Obama.

While Palmer lost her bid for the seat, she opted to enter the primary election. She met the December 18 deadline for petitions to place her name on the ballot, as did several other candidates. Obama indicated to Jackson and Long that he was disappointed with Palmer’s action, contradictory to their understanding the previous summer, according to President Obama.

After Obama operatives filed on January 2, 1995, with the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, they began the laborious process of challenging the signatures. “And they kept challenging petitions until every one of Obama’s four Democratic primary rivals was forced off the ballot.”

While nothing that President Obama did was illegal, he was able to eliminate all his opposition to the primary. He used the system.

Now, the Left criticizes President Trump for utilizing the legal options that he must examine the legality of the votes in numerous states.

President Obama protects only himself. President Trump places the American people first. God protect President Trump and our county.

May it be our sovereign prayer that President Trump and his team (our team) have the opportunity to examine the validity of the election for the President of the United States of America—one nation under God.

God bless America—and President Trump—an imperfect man who is perfect for the job.

Former President Barack Obama rallied 273 cars in Orlando this morning. Appearing on FNC’s Outnumbered, former Reagan Education Secretary Bill Bennett said that President Obama’s crowd went back “as far as the arm could stretch.” By comparison, there are twice as many people in a single section of stands at a Trump rally than there are in an entire Obama rally.

President Obama scolded the nation for electing President Trump, saying he didn’t expect President Trump to follow his policies, then saying that he’d hoped he’d take the job seriously. That’s a breathtakingly dishonest statement, especially coming from a former president. The Trump administration has negotiated more peace deals involving Israel in the past 3 months than all previous US presidents did combined. President Trump and the GOP Senate have appointed and confirmed 250 judges and 3 Supreme Court justices.

Does President Obama think that sounds like an unserious man? I don’t think that. President Obama is fighting for what little is left of his limited legacy. A Trump re-election would wipe out President Obama’s legacy and put smiles on people’s faces. I had the opportunity to watch this speech live:

I’m thankful I opted not to watch. President Trump’s list of accomplishments is lengthy, covers multiple subjects and won’t be undone anytime soon.

Emma Trittin, a University of Central Florida senior, said her age group of 18-29-year-olds was coming out in force this year, with more than 400,000 voting early. “I think Floridians are really fed up with how the past four years have gone with the Trump administration,” she said. “Youth are really stepping up and voting because they know that they have power in their voice.”

Ms. Trittin is ill-informed. According to pollsters Matt Towery of Insider Advantage and John Cahaly of the Trafalgar Group, people in the 30-44 age group have moved towards President Trump since last Thursday’s presidential debate. They attribute the exodus to Biden’s lockdown language.

This article explains what’s happening in Minnesota. It’s long been known that Minnesota’s political landscape was changing. The last 4 years, though, have shown that the pace of change accelerated.

The article opens by saying “Ask Larry Cuffe why, after decades of voting for Democrats, he voted for Donald Trump four years ago, and he’ll talk about his distrust of Hillary Clinton and the need to get northern Minnesota’s mines back to work. Ask the former police officer why he’s sticking with Trump in 2020 and the list is very much longer.” The simplest way of putting things is by saying that President Trump has kept most of his promises to Blue Collar America. He hasn’t been perfect but he’s worked tirelessly to do what he promised. The political establishment hasn’t worked hard to support the lunchpail crowd.

Andrea Zupancich, a real estate agent and part-time mayor of the small city of Babbitt who also voted for Obama and signed the letter in support of Trump, twice testified to Congress that China dumping cheap steel on the US was killing her community. She said the imports drove down demand for iron ore from the mines around Babbitt which cost jobs, battered the local economy and drove people to leave the city. “We were pleading with Obama to do something about this. He started doing a little bit and then it just kind of fizzled,” she said.

Zupancich credits Trump for standing up to China by imposing tariffs on its steel that she says has injected new life into the industry in the US and the Iron Range. “The tariffs, that is causing an equal playing field for the selling of our steel, so we’ve noticed an increase in the mines’ production. We see that they’re hiring people, they’re putting money back into the mines. They’re planning on mining for a while,” she said.

The next time Joe Biden insists that President Trump took over a booming economy, then ruined it, throw this back in his face. The Obama-Biden administration hurt the Iron Range in northeast Minnesota and steel mill towns in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

President Trump got rid of the Obama regulations that revitalized the energy industry. Now we’re energy independent and energy dominant. President Trump imposed tariffs on China when they tried cheap steel into the US. It didn’t take long for China to stop dumping steel into the US. When the China steel dumping stopped, the Iron Range’s economy was revitalized. The Obama-Biden administration was mostly about career politicians flapping their gums. The Trump administration specializes in fixing economic problems.

“We are sitting on a half a trillion dollars’ worth of copper and nickel,” said Zupancich. “We import all our nickel whereas we could provide 90% of the world’s nickel and the state would really benefit. The mining taxes pay for our schools for the entire state.”

The plan ran into opposition from Minnesota Democrats over environmental concerns. To Zupancich it didn’t make sense if a ban on mining in northern Minnesota means the minerals then come from countries such as China or Russia with lower environmental and other standards.

Barack Obama will campaign with Joe Biden in an attempt to salvage what little is left of President Obama’s tattered legacy. An aide to the former president told ABC News that “President Obama plans to hit the trail soon, in addition to all the other activities he’s undertaken all year in support of electing VP Biden – as he’s said, we all have to do everything we can to win on November 3.”

It isn’t surprising that President Obama will campaign with Joe Biden. It’s just that President Obama is past his sell-by date. President Obama got fewer votes in 2012 than he got in 2008. That’s the only time in history that a US president got re-elected with fewer votes than for election.

Obama has participated in several fundraisers on behalf of Biden’s campaign and gave a primetime speech during the Democratic National Convention in which he excoriated President Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and extolled Biden’s leadership.

The former president has yet to travel to any of the traditional battleground states to campaign for Biden, mostly due to the greatly reduced in-person footprint the former vice president’s team has stuck to amid the ongoing pandemic.

The only battleground cities where President Obama might be welcome are Detroit, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Frankly, I’m not certain that he’d be welcome in Pittsburgh. Here’s why:

Compare that with this:

President Trump’s message appealed to voters because he preached the gospel of prosperity and restoration. Entire communities are getting rebuilt in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Industries have gotten rebuilt, starting with the energy industry, followed by manufacturing. Remember this?

I’d nickname President Obama Presidential Trash-Talker. I’d nickname President Trump Presidential Miracle Worker. Joe Biden is hoping that blue collar workers will forget the manufacturing jobs that disappeared during the Obama-Biden administration. I’m betting that won’t happen. If Joe Biden isn’t the recipient of divine intervention, the people will re-elect President Trump to another 4-year term in office.

Barack Obama might move the needle a little bit but he won’t move it in enough states. Democrats need to find a new savior. Right now, they don’t have one. They ran 30 (more-or-less) candidates for president. Sleepy Joe was the best of a terrible bunch.

Think of President Trump’s Platinum Plan as President Trump’s in-your-face attempt to compete with Joe Biden for the African-American vote. First, this isn’t pandering. It’s an honest attempt to improve the lives of African-Americans. Next, the 4 pillars of President Trump’s plan are “‘opportunity,’ ‘security’ ‘prosperity’ and ‘fairness’ for the Black Community.”

Specifically, the Platinum Plan “designates the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations and calls for making lynching a national hate crime, while pledging to increase access to capital in Black communities by nearly $500 billion.” Further, President Trump’s Platinum Plan will “will increase access to capital, fuel Black owned businesses, cut taxes, increase education opportunities, lower the cost of healthcare, further criminal justice reform, make Juneteenth a National Holiday, prosecute the KKK and ANTIFA as terrorist organizations, and make lynching a national hate crime.” Exit question: Did the Obama-Biden administration ever propose a plan like this? If they didn’t, why didn’t they?

School Choice

“While Joe Biden has bowed down to left-wing teachers unions at the expense of struggling students, President Trump has fought to give children across America access to school choice and quality education,” said Dr. Linda Lee Tarver, Black Voices for Trump Advisory Board Member. “We need a leader like President Trump who understands the crisis facing America’s public schools, not a career politician like Joe Biden who supports the failing status quo.”

Joe Biden is the status quo candidate. It won’t take long for African-Americans to figure out which presidential ticket has a plan to improve the lives of their community and which ticket is just more of the same failed policies that’ve kept African-Americans on the Democrats’ plantation.

Joe Biden doesn’t have a plan like that. Let’s see how Democrats like competing with Republicans for African-American votes. I think they won’t take it well.

The FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into then-President-Elect Trump was illegitimate. In fact, a previous counterintelligence investigation provided the proof:

The primary sub-source for the Steele dossier was the subject of an earlier counterintelligence investigation by the FBI, and those facts were known to the Crossfire Hurricane team as early as December 2016, according to newly released records from the Justice Department that were first reported by CBS News.

CBS’s Catherine Herridge reports:

“Between May 2009 and March 2011, the FBI maintained an investigation into the individual who later would be identified as Christopher Steele’s Primary Sub-source,” the two page FBI memo states. “The FBI commenced this investigation based on information by the FBI indicating that the Primary Sub-source may be a threat to national security.”

Here’s Page 1:

Here’s Page 2:

Ms. Herridge later wrote “The two-page memo states the case was not reopened, and there is no indication the FISA court was ever told that the dossier source was the subject of an earlier FBI probe.” That’s proof that a) the Mueller Investigation wasn’t properly predicated and b) the FBI didn’t notify the FISA Court that the primary subsource for the Steele Dossier was a Russian spy. Had the FBI disclosed that information, the FBI wouldn’t have gotten a wiretap warrant on Carter Page.

Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe and other senior FBI officials will, at minimum, receive intense new scrutiny from John Durham. It’s apparent that the Obama FBI senior staff was filled with corrupt people. The MSM will, of course, ignore that and continue touting the Obama administration as virtually corruption free.

This article talks about how what NFL end zones will look like for the future. It says “The end zones at NFL stadiums will be stenciled with a pair of messages calling for an end to systemic racism throughout the 2020 season, Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed during a Tuesday conference call. The phrases ‘End racism’ and ‘It takes all of us’ will be seen in the 10-yard scoring areas at either end of the field, Goodell said.”

When it comes to PR stupidity, you can’t much worse than the NFL. The NFL, you’ll remember, is the pro sports league that thought that suspending Ray Rice for 2 games was sufficient after he assaulted his then-fiance coming out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. This year, the spineless ‘leaders’ of the NFL folded like a cheap suit when the players decided that they’d support the BLM organization. Had the NFL had a spine, they would’ve told the players they wouldn’t support terrorists like BLM. If you have a problem with the word terrorists, watch these videos, then tell me that word doesn’t fit:


BLM’s co-founders are admitted “trained Marxists.” Further, BLM stands for the destruction of the nuclear family. Why would the NFL want to connect with BLM? People are figuring out who BLM is and what they represent. This isn’t a winning situation for the NFL. If the NFL had someone smart running their PR operations, that person would’ve told them that it’s most important to not alienate anyone. When people tune out, which will happen this fall, revenues drop. The PR person should’ve asked the players what’s most important — to keep the fat paychecks coming or to establish a relationship with a radical activist organization?

The NFL and society would be farther better off if the players focused on fixing problems rather than starting a conversation. Anyone can start a conversation. Thus far, only President Trump has fixed any problems. When someone says that they’d like to start a conversation about race, it sounds like President Obama prepping for a beer summit. The Beer Summit didn’t do any harm but it didn’t fix anything, either.

This article in Harper’s Bazaar is a stirring account of how Kim Kardashian used her celebrity connections to help Alice Marie Johnson out of the most difficult situation in Alice Johnson’s life. If you haven’t read the article, I can’t recommend it strongly enough.

First, Alice Marie Johnson deserves tons of credit for accepting responsibility for what she’d done. Unlike some politicians who make excuses (think Hillary Clinton after the 2016 election and Nancy Pelosi after the salon), Alice Johnson humbled herself, admitted that she’d made mistakes, then turned to the Lord for redemption. I’m certain that Alice’s humility and contrition got God’s attention, Who then put it on Kim Kardashian’s heart to find Alice. After getting to know Alice, the forever bond was forged. Shortly thereafter, Kim posted this tweet:


This videotaped interview is golden:

About 6:00 into the interview, Kardashian-West said “There were people around who said ‘are you sure you should go to the White House? Maybe you shouldn’t go.’ To me, this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with people.”

Think of how much better off the US would be if more people had that attitude. This will sound a little pollyannish but I’ll say it anyway. Doing the right thing is always smart politically.

During their first face-to-face meeting, Alice told Kim that she prays for Kim and Kanye daily. That day, her prayer was based on Psalm 105:14-15, which says “He permitted no one to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”

Kardashian-West spoke first with Ivanka Trump, who then arranged a meeting with President Trump. Kardashian-West wasn’t worried about resistance or who got credit. She only cared about doing the right thing. President Trump entered their meeting with the same attitude. As a result of that attitude, they got Alice Johnson’s sentence commuted and laid the groundwork for criminal justice reform.

President Obama pardoned 231 individuals in December 2016, “many of whom had similar drug-related charges,” Mic reports, but Johnson was not one of them. According to BBC News, Johnson “fit all of the criteria” for the former president’s clemency project, but was rejected just days before Obama’s term ended. The reason why is unclear. Johnson told Mic, “When the criteria came out for clemency, I thought for sure—in fact, I was certain that I’d met and exceeded all of the criteria.”

It will be difficult for Biden to explain that away. It’s one thing to admit that the didn’t commute Alice Johnson’s sentence. It’s another thing to say ‘we commuted these sentences but didn’t work on criminal justice reform.’
