James Woods Destroys Obama Legacy, Shows Americans the 1 Video Barack Wanted Us To Forget
BY JOE SAUNDERS 
JULY 15, 2018 AT 1:42PM
 Share on Facebook  Tweet  Email  Print
These are the words that haunt the Barack Obama legacy.

While Democrats and their media allies chase the phantom of “Russian collusion” with the Donald Trump campaign, leave it to conservative champion James Woods to pass on a Twitter post to remind Americans of just how brazenly Democrats downplayed the threat posed by Russia during the Obama administration.

As President Trump prepares to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, for the first summit between the two leaders, it’s a video that should make for some uncomfortable viewing for liberals with short memories.

The moment came during the final debate between then-President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney at Lynne University in Boca Raton, Florida in October, 2012. (A full transcript is here, as published by the Commission on Presidential Debates.)

Romney had just gone through a litany of the dangers posed by terrorism in the Islamic world (terrorism that increased sharply under Obama’s feckless watch) when Obama launched his zinger that gladdened the hearts of his liberal fanbase — but now makes him look like a patronizing fool.

Woods passed on a video of the moment in a Saturday retweet, with the message: “This is like an ice cream Sundae.”

And here’s the video – just in case Democrats have forgotten it:

“Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida,” Obama said. “You said Russia. And the 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

It sums up the Obama administration perfectly: The arrogance of a president who considered his opponent beneath contempt. The sneering put-down of the past that was loved by Obama’s oh-so-modern liberal backers.

(The video in the tweet Woods was passing on clearly originated with an Obama supporter, judging by the implied mockery of the music and the zoom in on Romney’s face. Russia isn’t looking so funny to liberals now.)

What the video really proved, though, is that, as usual, when Democrats are accusing Republicans of something, it’s because they’re guilty of it themselves.

In the case of the Trump-“Russia collusion” fantasy, the party of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama hope Americans don’t remember the infamous “reset” button of Clinton’s first major initiative of her cursed time as America’s secretary of state.
They’re hoping Americans don’t remember how Obama unilaterally abandoned a planned missile defense screen against Russia in Central Europe back in 2009. Even left-wing news sites like The Guardian covered it then, though the mainstream media says little about it now.

RELATED: James Woods Finds Old Video of Hillary, Links It to Strzok Testimony and the Internet Goes Nuts

They’re hoping Americans don’t remember that it was Obama who was caught on a hot mic pledging the use greater “flexibility” in negotiating with Russia if he won re-election in 2012. Some mainstream media reporters literally do not remember the incident now. (Or pretend not to.)
But clips like this one, passed on to Woods’ politically aware Twitter audience of 1.6 million followers, are going to keep reminding Americans of the truth.

It wasn’t Republican presidents or their political party that were soft on Russians during the Soviet Union days. And it hasn’t been Republican presidents or their political party that have been soft on Russians since the Cold War ended.
Democrats thought Ronald Reagan was wrong to stand up to the Soviets in the 1980s, with the very foreign policy Obama was mocking in that 2012 debate in Boca Raton.

And if Donald Trump were not in the White House today, and if the Democrats didn’t need the phantom of “Russia collusion” to attack him with, they’d be cozying up to Putin just as much as Hillary Clinton did to nail the Uranium One deal Democrats still don’t want to talk about.

With every passing day, the Obama legacy gets more disreputable, thanks to the successes of the Trump administration domestically and the strenth it projects abroad.
And thanks to activist conservatives like Woods, the American people can get some much-needed reminders of how bad things really were when Barack Obama was in the White House.

Independence Day Present for Trump: Approval Blows Past Obama’s
BY JOE SAUNDERS 
JULY 5, 2018 AT 7:03AM
 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
It’s the kind of news the news media hates.

Marking his second Independence Day as the man in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump saw his approval rating sitting above former President Barack Obama’s at the same point in his first term.

And Trump’s doing it in the face of a mainstream news media assault his predecessor never could have imagined.

According to Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll,  Trump entered the holiday with 48 percent of Americans approving of the job he’s doing.

That beats Obama’s rating on July 3, 2010, by 3 points, the daily tracking of the Obama administration shows.

 WOW: Trump's approval rating stands at 48%, according to Rasmussen. Barack Obama, during the same time in office, had approval of only 45%

Three points might not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but when it’s seen in the context of the unflagging worship the news media was bestowing on Obama from before he even won the presidency to his second Fourth of July in office, it’s fair to say Trump is blowing Obama away.

Remember, by July 4, 2010, Obama had been a president with huge majorities in both houses of Congress. The world was still swooning over the first black president, who had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize the year before for literally nothing he had accomplished yet (or would, in fact, accomplish over the next six, dismal years of his tenure).

He’d signed the Affordable Care Act in March of 2010, and Washington correspondents for mainstream news organizations were mainly concerned with trying to outdo each other in degrading their profession by fawning over Obama, his wife and the whole quasi-socialist program his Democrat Party was trying to foist on the country.

Are you surprised to see Trump’s approval rating beating Obama’s?
Yes No

By contrast, Trump has been battling not only foreign governments in trade disputes but also a nit-picking, overly antagonistic media that’s given his administration an astounding 90 percent negative coverage, according to the hawk-eyed Newsbusters at the Media Research Center.

Even more impressive, Trump’s approval numbers are actually being helped by black and Hispanic voters – exactly the kind of Americans liberals are counting on to power their vaunted (and probably mythical) “blue wave” come November.

Now, it’s a good chance most mainstream media commentators were hoping — along with the Democrat Party — that Trump would never actually reach the milestone of a second Fourth of July in the White House.

By now, special counsel Robert Mueller’s “Russia collusion” investigation should have driven him from office, of course – if Trump’s own perfidy (in liberal eyes) or the inherent criminality (again, in liberal eyes) of his administration hadn’t made it self-destruct.

But neither of those things have happened. And despite the onslaught of media hostility, Americans can see with their own eyes what a Trump administration is accomplishing.

RELATED: Dems Faking Immigration Outrage: Place It 9th on List of Issues They Worry About

Low unemployment, a roaring stock market, demonstrable – if still uncertain – progress toward peace with the always-nettlesome North Koreans.

That’s the kind of news that can’t help but get through the media filter, because Americans have their eyes open. And it’s the kind of reality Americans are experiencing in their daily lives, no matter what the news media keeps telling them.

And that makes the news about what Americans are really thinking the kind of news the news media hates most of all.

Ben Shapiro Torches Obama, Briefly Silences Bill Maher With History Lesson on His Own Show
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
JUNE 30, 2018 AT 6:33AM
 https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/ben-shapiro-torches-obama-briefly-silences-bill-maher-history-lesson-his-own-show/?
Did President Trump collude with Russian leader Vladimir Putin during the 2016 election and beyond? Bill Maher certainly thinks so. Yet, in just 30 seconds, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro proved that if the Kremlin had their druthers, they’d probably rather have Barack Obama back in place at 1600 Pennsylvania.

Shapiro appeared on Maher’s HBO show Friday, and heavily on the agenda was Trump’s relationship with Putin and Russia, particularly given that Maher and Shapiro are on opposite sides of the debate.

The discussion began after a discussion of whether or not Trump was a thought leader. Shapiro, who describes himself as a “sometimes-Trumper” and has been critical of the president’s character, claimed that he wasn’t.

“Can he have some thoughts?” Maher said.

“I don’t know, can he?” Shapiro asked with a laugh. “You tell me.”

“Well, it seems like his only thoughts, to me, are to work with Vladimir Putin to make Russia great again,” Maher responded.

VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=430&v=SGcdPakoytg

“He’s been a lot harsher on Putin than Obama was, by the way,” Shapiro said, drawing incredulity from Maher.

“Not in terms of his rhetoric, in terms of his actions,” Shapiro continued. “He has armed the people of Ukraine with deadly weapons, something which Obama would not do. Two-hundred Russian soldiers were killed in Syria by U.S. forces under Donald Trump, not under Barack Obama, because Barack Obama said to (former Russian President) Dmitry Medvedyev that he wanted to provide him with flexibility in 2012. Crimea was annexed under Barack Obama.”

The history lesson drew a stunned “wow” from Maher, who still didn’t want to believe it.

“This reminds me of when Hitchens used to come on the show and tried to convince me that Saddam Hussein was a radical Islamist when he was actually a secularist,” Maher said — referencing the late journalist and polemicist Christopher Hitchens, who supported the invasion of Iraq and the Bush administration’s agenda in the Middle East in spite of the fact that he was an avowed Trotskyist.

Perhaps the great irony of this is that Maher spent the majority of the interview pointing to direct collusion between the president and Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin without citing anything more than the desultory indictments by the Mueller special counsel and a few tweets by the president.

What was arguably Hitchens’ most famous quote was made in regards to religion, but it bears repurposing here: “What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.”

In terms of collusion, the idea that Trump is the Muscovian Candidate isn’t borne out by any evidence to suggest he’s been easy on Putin. Shapiro also neglected to mention the fact that the Trump administration has authorized air strikes on two occasions against the Russian-backed Assad regime in Syria, something that was hardly viewed with unalloyed joy in the halls of the Kremlin.

RELATED: Watch: Bill Maher Goes After Melania with Sick ‘Mrs. Hitler’ Jacket

Obama, meanwhile, has said he was “very proud” that he had held off striking Syria during his presidency even after drawing a “red line” regarding the use of chemical weapons.

All of this, on balance, is a lot worse for the Putin regime than a few errant tweets or Trump saying he wants Russia back in the G-7. Actions have always mattered more than words in politics, however, even before those words were measured in 280 characters or less.

When it came to actions, Putin loved him some Obama, and he likely would have loved him some Hillary Clinton, too. That’s the evidence, and no amount of aberrant rhetoric can change the facts. When it comes to collusion, perhaps Mr. Maher would do well to listen to Shapiro. If he doesn’t trust Shapiro alone, however, he would also do well to take his late friend’s advice.

Former President Barack Obama is headed out of the country.
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/obama-travel-to-kenya/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pnaAccording to reports, the former president will soon be traveling to Portugal, Spain, and South Africa, as well as visiting his father’s homeland of Kenya.

We Are Paying for It
Obama is expected to leave on his global jaunt in early July, then travel for several weeks.

Of course, along with him will be dozens of Secret Service agents to protect him and his family from harm.

With that, the month of July will not be a cheap one for the American taxpayer.

Long Lost Sister
Toward the middle of July, Obama is expected to arrive in Kenya.

While there, he will be making an appearance at a local youth center founded by his sister, Auma Obama.

“Given that his own mission under the Obama Foundation is to inspire and empower people to change the world, his attendance at this event at our ancestral home, where our father was laid to rest, is of great significance to me,” Auma Obama, who shares a father with the former president, said.

The Stops
Barack Obama is also expected to meet with Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta while he is in the country.

Additionally, he is scheduled to meet with Raila Odinga, the opposition leader.

Later, Obama will be attending an event in South Africa to honor Nelson Mandela’s birthday.

He is also scheduled to meet President Cyril Ramphosa while there.

Should Obama Be Talking to World Leaders?
Yes
No
Next
Prior to heading to Africa, Obama will be making some quick stops in Spain and Portugal.

One can only imagine the damage he will do, no doubt badmouthing Trump wherever he goes.

Lawsuit: Obama’s Agency Held Teenage Migrants in ‘Brutal, Inhumane Conditions’
1631
lawsuitAlex Wong/Getty Images
21 Jun 20181,459
President Barack Obama’s immigration agency allowed migrant youths as young as 14 to be abused, tied up, left naked in solitary confinement, and denied health treatment at a juvenile detention center in Virginia in 2015 and 2016, says a lawsuit filed on behalf of a Latino migrant.
The lawsuit was settled in January, according to the Associated Press, which does not describe the settlement but does say that officials at Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center (SVJC) in Staunton, Virginia, denied the claims.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of plaintiff John Doe states:

Doe and other similarly situated young people in SVJC are subject to unconstitutional conditions that shock the conscience, including violence by staff, abusive and excessive use of seclusion and restraints, and denial of necessary mental health care. As a result, Doe has engaged in significant and continuous self-harm, to which SVJC staff and counselors have responded with callous indifference.

These violations reflects a disorganized, untrained and understaffed facility that house immigrant children in brutal, inhumane conditions.

AP reported on sworn statements of jailed teens, including charges that guards stripped off their clothes and strapped them to chairs and placed bags over their heads.

“Whenever they used to restrain me and put me in the chair, they would handcuff me,” a Honduran immigrant who was sent to the facility at 15, said in the AP report. “Strapped me down all the way, from your feet all the way to your chest, you couldn’t really move. … They have total control over you. They also put a bag over your head. It has little holes; you can see through it. But you feel suffocated with the bag on.”

“If you are behaving bad, resisting the staff when they try to remove you from the program, they will take everything in your room away — your mattress, blanket, everything,” a16-year old Latino immigrant detained at the center said in the AP report.

“They will also take your clothes. Then they will leave you locked in there for a while,” he said. “This has happened to me, and I know it has happened to other kids, too.”

A 15-year-old Mexican held at the detention center for nine months said in his sworn statement he was restrained with a bag over his head.

“They handcuffed me and put a white bag of some kind over my head,” he said. “They took off all of my clothes and put me into a restraint chair, where they attached my hands and feet to the chair. They also put a strap across my chest. They left me naked and attached to that chair for two and a half days, including at night.”

AP reported:

In addition to the children’s first-hand, translated accounts in court filings, a former child-development specialist who worked inside the facility independently told The Associated Press this week that she saw kids there with bruises and broken bones they blamed on guards. She spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to publicly discuss the children’s cases.

The AP did admit that some of the youths detained in Virginia were suspected to be MS-13 gang members and had received “secure placement” because of violent behavior.

The AP report does not mention Obama or any of his cabinet, but repeatedly suggests a link to President Donald Trump.

“Many of the children were sent there after U.S. immigration authorities accused them of belonging to violent gangs, including MS-13,” AP reported, and added, “President Donald Trump has repeatedly cited gang activity as justification for his crackdown on illegal immigration.”

AP reported:

Most children held in the Shenandoah facility who were the focus of the abuse lawsuit were caught crossing the border illegally alone. They were not the children who have been separated from their families under the Trump administration’s recent policy and are now in the government’s care. But the facility there operates under the same program run by the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement.

It was not immediately clear whether any separated children have been sent to Shenandoah Valley since the Trump administration in April announced its “zero tolerance” policy toward immigrant families after the lawsuit was filed.

Obama Presidential Center Will Cost Taxpayers Almost $200 Million

Obama Presidential Center Will Cost Taxpayers Almost $200 Million
By Jack Davis 
June 16, 2018 at 9:55am
 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
Illinois taxpayers will cough up almost $200 million as part of the state’s plan to improve the area around the Obama Presidential Center, which will be constructed on the South Side of Chicago.
Earlier this month, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed off on a bill that included $174 million for road work near the project and another $50 million to repair a rail stop, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our partners in Springfield also saw the potential for what this means for all of Illinois. The state’s $174 million investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement that was released Friday as ground was broken for the rail stop project.
The rail stop project is supported by state and federal tax dollars through a federal grant matched with state money. Emanuel was a one-time chief of staff to former President Barack Obama.
The Obama Center is still in the process of getting all local, state and federal approvals. One issue that has emerged is that the 23-story center would eat up a slice of historic Jackson Park. Some opponents of the project want the park spared, and want the center built on private land.

https://www.westernjournal.com/report-obama-holding-secret-one-on-one-meetings-with-potential-2020-candidates/?Report: Obama Holding Secret One-On-One Meetings with Potential 2020 Candidates
By Joe Setyon 
June 11, 2018 at 9:37am
 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
Former President Barack Obama has reportedly held multiple one-on-one meetings with potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidates as he looks to help his party regain control of the White House.

Citing multiple sources, Politico was the first to report on the meetings, which have been held in Obama’s Washington, D.C. office. The former president is not set to support or endorse any one candidate, but he reportedly does want to be involved in the Democratic Party’s attempts to bounce back in the 2018 midterms and in 2020.

The meeting have been held in secret, according to Politico, due to the fact that Obama does not like his private interactions to become public.

The nine potential candidates Trump has met with reportedly include Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

“The president was generous with his time and advice, and he was excited to talk about the future,” said a source who is familiar with one of the meetings.

Obama’s office, though, refused to confirm the meetings to Politico.

In 2016, Democrats had only two major candidates for president — Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

However, they are expecting a much larger field in 2020, with high-profile figures like California Sen. Kamala Harris, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe all rumored to be interested in running.

But not all of those potential candidates have met with Obama, and according to CNN, the one-on-one meetings the former president did hold had little to do with specific strategies.

“This is not about where you put your Sioux City, Iowa office,” a Democrat source told the network, adding that Obama spends “much more time on how to respond to (President Donald Trump), positioning and broader challenges with the party.”

“He has been very clear about the need for the Democratic Party to rebuild and part of that is lifting up the next generation of leaders,” the Democrat said. “So if people want advice or a gut check or just to come in and look at the challenges we face, he is happy to do that.”

Sanders reportedly contacted Obama to set up their meeting, during which they talked more about the general future of the Democratic Party than whether or not Sanders would run in 2020.

Obama has also reportedly kept in touch with Biden — his former vice president — who is expected to announce his plans for 2020 following the midterms, according to The Hill.

Per Politico, Obama believes that going forward, Democrats should focus less on “kitchen table issues” and more on things that will “stick in the long term,” like the alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.

Obama has stayed out of the spotlight since he left office in January 2017, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — who has also met with the former president — said he expects Obama to be more visible as he campaigns for Democrat candidates in the 2018 midterms.

“I think it’s great that he’s meeting with people who are interested in the future of the country and the party,” a source with knowledge of one of Obama’s one-on-one meetings told Politico.

Nat. Archives Stumble onto New Obama Scandal — ‘Wholesale Destruction’ of Gov’t Records
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
JUNE 11, 2018 AT 8:49AM
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/nat-archives-stumble-onto-new-obama-scandal-wholesale-destruction-of-govt-records/?The archivist in charge of transferring former President Barack Obama’s records into the National Archives has run across a serious problem, according to a report published Sunday: A lot of the records are missing.

“A first-rate librarian, (David) Ferriero has been driving a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment,” writer Thomas Lipscomb reported for RealClearPolitics. “This will greatly improve the ability of digital search locally and remotely, as well as accessing the files themselves.”

However, that only works if you have the files you need in the first place. And Lipscomb, well, doesn’t.

The former president, it must be noted, signed a law that put electronic communications under the 1950 Federal Records Act. However, it doesn’t seem that his practice is quite what he preaches.

Lipscomb wrote that “the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and ‘loss’ of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges.”

TRENDING: Paranoid KJU Brings ‘Just in Case’ Cargo to Historic Summit

“So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders. The IRS suffered record ‘losses’ as well. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy called it ‘an unauthorized private communications system for official business for the patent purpose of defeating federal record-keeping and disclosure laws.’”

It’s worth noting two things. First, this isn’t a minor thing. Lipscomb argued that “America’s National Archives is facing the first major challenge to its historic role in preserving the records of the United States.”

“What good is the National Archives administering a presidential library, like the planned Obama library in Chicago, if it is missing critical records of interest to scholars?” he wrote. “And what’s to prevent evasion of the entire federal records system by subsequent administrations to suit current politics rather than serve scholars for centuries to come?”

And that’s the second thing. In a break from tradition, Barack Obama’s presidential library is actually opting out of any sort of relationship of the National Archives.

“The Obama Presidential Center in Chicago’s Jackson Park will take a different route, opting out of the presidential library network operated by the National Archives and Records Administration — and the millions of dollars in federal support that go along with membership,” the Chicago Tribune reported back in May.

“In the months leading up to the announcement, it was widely assumed that the center would have a presidential library, full of documents and artifacts, that was part of the NARA system.”

The spin at that point was that Obama’s decision to opt out of a relationship with the National Archives was a good thing. It would allow Obama to escape several regulations set by NARA in terms of both the design and endowment of the library, among other things. Whether or not that was true — or whether or not this has anything to do with the former administration’s destruction of records — is anyone’s guess, although it certainly looks somewhat more suspicious in this light.

This isn’t the first time that a former Democrat president has faced a controversy over documents that are supposed to be housed at the National Archives. Clinton surrogate Sandy Berger was caught stuffing uncatalogued papers from the archives in his clothing while allegedly “reviewing records for a Clinton response to the 9/11 Commission’s considerations of mistakes made leading up to the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon,” Lipscomb noted.

This time, however, the gap in electronic records appears to be a lot bigger, particularly when it comes to Clinton, to Lynch and to the IRS, each of which saw major scandals during the Obama presidency. This could be massive, particularly given that the avoidance of the gaze of the National Archives appears to be totally deliberate. In many ways, the story here is the wholesale destruction of the documents — although quite frankly, bigger scandals could have been hidden within the data.

RELATED: Compare Trump’s G-7 Pic to Obama’s and It’s Suddenly Clear Why Trump Won

“How does David Ferriero plan to deal with this unique challenge to his institution? First, it’s not just his problem, although he must address the realities of gaps in the record and how it will affect plans for the new Obama presidential library,” Lipscomb wrote. “But will there be penalties for violating the 2014 law? Is it even possible to continue the great tradition of maintaining an authentic record center for the United States that President Franklin Roosevelt founded 83 years ago, if that law is not supported?”

The answer to the first question is undoubtedly “no.” As with all other scandals that happened under the Obama administration, Democrats aren’t terribly interested in paying them any attention, and their enmity falls upon anyone who doesn’t follow the playbook. Will this be fatal for the National Archives? Well, the Obama administration has just set a precedent, apparently saying that a president is entitled to protect his legacy at the expense of the law.

That could change, however. Look how many stories there have been over reports that President Donald Trump likes to rip up papers and frantic staff tape them back together so they can comply with the Federal Records Act. This is some of the coverage that story got, via Google News:

Here’s the kind of coverage, meanwhile, that Lipscomb’s report is getting:

Apparently, real document destruction isn’t that big of a deal for the media. But if there’s a comical story regarding Trump, they’re more than willing to run it.

AP: Obama Admin Secretly Tried to Let Iran Convert $5.7 Billion Through U.S. Banks

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access — albeit briefly — to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.

An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal’s opponents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity.

The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that under President Barack Obama, the Treasury Department issued a license in February 2016, never previously disclosed, that would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at a bank in Oman from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them first into U.S. dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. financial system.

The effort was unsuccessful because American banks — themselves afraid of running afoul of U.S. sanctions — declined to participate. The Obama administration approached two U.S. banks to facilitate the conversion, the report said, but both refused, citing the reputational risk of doing business with or for Iran.

“The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the subcommittee’s chairman.

Issuing the license was not illegal. Still, it went above and beyond what the Obama administration was required to do under the terms of the nuclear agreement. Under that deal, the U.S. and world powers gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program. Last month, President Donald Trump declared the U.S. was pulling out of what he described as a “disastrous deal.”

The license issued to Bank Muscat stood in stark contrast to repeated public statements from the Obama White House, the Treasury and the State Department, all of which denied that the administration was contemplating allowing Iran access to the U.S. financial system.

Shortly after the nuclear deal was sealed in July 2015, then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testified that even with the sanctions relief, Iran “will continue to be denied access to the world’s largest financial and commercial market.” A month later, one of Lew’s top deputies, Adam Szubin, testified that despite the nuclear deal “Iran will be denied access to the world’s most important market and unable to deal in the world’s most important currency.”

Yet almost immediately after the sanctions relief took effect in January 2016, Iran began to complain that it wasn’t reaping the benefits it had envisioned. Iran argued that other sanctions — such as those linked to human rights, terrorism and missile development — were scaring off potential investors and banks who feared any business with Iran would lead to punishment. The global financial system is heavily intertwined with U.S. banks, making it nearly impossible to conduct many international transactions without touching New York in one way or another.

Former Obama administration officials declined to comment for the record.

However, they said the decision to grant the license had been made in line with the spirt of the deal, which included allowing Iran to regain access to foreign reserves that had been off-limits because of the sanctions. They said public comments made by the Obama administration at the time were intended to dispel incorrect reports about nonexistent proposals that would have gone much farther by letting Iran actually buy or sell things in dollars.

The former officials spoke on condition of anonymity because many are still involved in national security issues.

As the Obama administration pondered how to address Iran’s complaints in 2016, reports in The Associated Press and other media outlets revealed that the U.S. was considering additional sanctions relief, including issuing licenses that would allow Iran limited transactions in dollars. Democratic and Republican lawmakers argued against it throughout the late winter, spring and summer of 2016. They warned that unless Tehran was willing to give up more, the U.S. shouldn’t give Iran anything more than it already had.

At the time, the Obama administration downplayed those concerns while speaking in general terms about the need for the U.S. to live up to its part of the deal. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top aides fanned out across Europe, Asia and the Middle East trying to convince banks and businesses they could do business with Iran without violating sanctions and facing steep fines.

“Since Iran has kept its end of the deal, it is our responsibility to uphold ours, in both letter and spirit,” Lew said at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in March 2016, without offering details.

That same week, the AP reported that the Treasury had prepared a draft of a license that would have given Iran much broader permission to convert its assets from foreign currencies into easier-to-spend currencies like euros, yen or rupees, by first exchanging them for dollars at offshore financial institutions.

The draft involved a general license, a blanket go-ahead that allows all transactions of a certain type, rather than a specific license like the one given to Oman’s Bank Muscat, which only covers specific transactions and institutions. The proposal would have allowed dollars to be used in currency exchanges provided that no Iranian banks, no Iranian rials and no sanctioned Iranian individuals or businesses were involved, and that the transaction did not begin or end in U.S. dollars.

Obama administration officials at the time assured concerned lawmakers that a general license wouldn’t be coming. But the report from the Republican members of the Senate panel showed that a draft of the license was indeed prepared, though it was never published.

And when questioned by lawmakers about the possibility of granting Iran any kind of access to the U.S. financial system, Obama-era officials never volunteered that the specific license for Bank Muscat in Oman had been issued two months earlier.

According to the report, Iran is believed to have found other ways to access its money, possibly by exchanging it in smaller quantities through another currency.

The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a currency that’s notoriously hard to convert. The U.S. dollar is the world’s dominant currency, so allowing it to be used as a conversion instrument for Iranian assets was the easiest and most efficient way to speed up Iran’s access to its own funds.

For example: If the Iranians want to sell oil to India, they would likely want to be paid in euros instead of rupees, so they could more easily use the proceeds to purchase European goods. That process commonly starts with the rupees being converted into dollars, just for a moment, before being converted once again into euros.

U.S. sanctions block Iran from exchanging the money on its own. And Asian and European banks are wary because U.S. regulators have levied billions of dollars in fines in recent years and threatened transgressors with a cutoff from the far more lucrative American market.

A bombshell report released Wednesday by the majority staff of the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that the Obama administration secretly plotted to give Iran access to the U.S. financial system as a sweetener for the 2015 nuclear deal.
This effectively helped Iran evade sanctions that were not lifted as part of the JCPOA, as it is formally known. The report also details how Obama officials blatantly lied to Congress and the American people about this special arrangement.

The Senate report cites four occasions when Obama officials “publicly stated that Iranian access to the U.S. financial system was not part of the relief specified in the JCPOA,” detailed as follows:

First, on July 23, 2015, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations concerning the nature of the potential sanctions relief contained in the JCPOA.  Secretary Lew stated that the JCPOA would “suspend nuclear-related secondary sanctions,” but that “a number of key sanctions will remain in place.” Specifically, Secretary Lew explained that “Iranian banks will not be able to clear U.S. dollars through New York, hold correspondent account relationships with U.S. financial institutions, or enter into financing arrangements with U.S. banks.” He further testified that “Iran, in other words, will continue to be denied access to the world’s largest financial and commercial market.”

Second, on August 5, 2015, Adam Szubin, the Acting Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs that “Iran will be denied access to the world’s most important market and unable to deal in the world’s most important currency,” referring to the U.S. financial system and the U.S. dollar. He also stated that “Iranian banks will not be able to clear U.S. dollars through New York, hold correspondent account relationships with U.S. financial institutions, or enter into financing arrangements with U.S. banks.”

Third, in testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on September 17, 2015, Mr. Szubin again assured lawmakers that “no Iranian banks can access the U.S. financial system, not to open an account, not to purchase a security, and not even to execute a dollarized transaction where a split–second’s worth of business is done in a New York clearing bank.”

Fourth, on September 16, 2015, Mr. Szubin gave a public address to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy where he discussed the sanctions that would remain after Implementation Day.

There, Mr. Szubin stated: “Iran  will not be able to open bank  accounts with U.S. banks, nor will  Iran be able to access the U.S. banking sector, even for that momentary transaction to, what we call, dollarize a foreign payment. …  That is not in the cards. That is not part of the relief offered under the JCPOA.”

Both Secretary Lew and Mr. Szubin testified that Iran would not have access to the U.S. financial system.  This public testimony mirrored what OFAC and State Department officials told foreign financial institutions and other investors around the world, as detailed in the following section.

The Senate report goes on to discuss the “roadshows” held by Obama administration officials for foreign governments and investors, explaining how sanctions relief under the JCPOA would work. It was repeatedly stated in these roadshows that “the U.S. financial system remained off-limits for foreign financial institutions conducting business on behalf of Iran.”

“U.S. government officials repeated this particular advice – to not use the U.S. financial system for transactions involving Iran – multiple times to bankers and business development leaders in countries including Switzerland, England, and Germany,” the Senate report notes.

At the same time, the roadshows featured a good deal of nudging and winking to the effect that the Obama administration would not vigorously pursue violations that favored Iran. At one of the most important roadshows in London, a Treasury official said violations would be addressed with simple warning letters “95 percent of the time.”

Despite these assurances, the Obama plan to convert $5.7 billion in currency to U.S. dollars fell apart because the two American banks asked to handle the transaction refused the request.

“The Obama administration misled the American people and Congress because they were desperate to get a deal with Iran.  Despite claims both before and after the Iran deal was completed that the U.S. financial system would remain off limits, the Obama administration issued a specific license allowing Iran to convert billions of dollars in assets using the U.S. financial system,” subcommittee chairman Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said on Wednesday.
Portman added that the report includes a number of transparency recommendations to “ensure these secret side deals never happen again.”

Bill Clinton: The media was easy on Obama because he was African-American
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/bill-clinton-on-obama.htm?utm_source=aimtell&utm_campaign=automated_push&utm_medium=push

Bill Clinton: The media was easy on Obama because he was African-American
Eric Austin / CCL
Did the mainstream media go easy on Barack Obama during his time in the nation’s highest office? A fellow former president thinks so, and he believes that he knows the reason why.

According to Bill Clinton, the press went easy on Barack Obama because he is “African-American.” Really?

The interview
Clinton’s remarks came on the most recent edition of CBS’s Sunday Morning. The former president has been making the media rounds to promote The President is Missing, a fictional terrorism book that he co-authored with novelist James Patterson.

At one point, Clinton and host Mo Rocca began to discuss the media’s coverage of the investigation into alleged Russia-Trump collusion. Clinton stated that he believes that such reporting has been based on the facts, which caused Rocca to ask:

You hear from Trump supporters who say, ‘You know, the press slobbered all over President Obama. He could do no wrong. And now this guy can do no right. What gives?’ That there’s a kind of whiplash.

“Well, they did treat him differently than other Democrats and Republicans,” responded Clinton.

“Why,” asked Rocca.

“It was the political press. You know, I don’t know. They liked him, and they liked having the first African American president – and he was a good president, I think,” said Clinton.

2016 Presidential race
Although both Democrats, Clinton and Obama have a higher loyalty to power, which they have proven desperate to maintain in their post-presidential lives. And so, it is no surprise that Clinton, supporting his wife in the most recent presidential race, gave speeches critical of Obama.

In 2016, at a rally in Spokane, Washington, Clinton went so far as to call Obama’s time in office “awful.” In full, he said:

But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the 7 years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.

Of course, he was referring to his wife Hillary.

The real explanation
It may come as a surprise to some, although not readers of this publication, that the continued prominence of racism is due in large part to this country’s political left, whose political success often depends on the votes of minority groups. Clinton and Obama know this perfectly well, and strategically adjust their rhetoric to appeal to the black and white world which comes to dominate their thinking.

And so, it is little wonder that Clinton would turn to race as the explanation for the media’s favorable treatment of Barrack Obama. But, it is easy to prove him wrong. How?

All one needs to do is bring up Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Thomas, especially after the recent death of colleague Antonin Scalia, is widely considered the High Court’s most conservative justice.

For this, Thomas, despite the fact that he himself is an African-American, receives harsh treatment from the left, which includes the mainstream media.

Is Bill Clinton right about Obama?
Yes
No
Next
Another easy counterexample is Ben Carson. So, sorry Bill, but race is not the answer.

The real explanation is simply that Obama is a liberal, and thus, shares that viewpoint which is constantly being peddled by the mainstream media. The fact that he was the first African-American president – a fact only emphasized by the race-driven left – was just the cherry on top.

Ex-Navy Sailor Suing Obama, Comey After Being Pardoned by Trump

A former Navy sailor who was pardoned by President Donald Trump in March after pleading guilty to mishandling classified information is planning to sue former President Barack Obama, former FBI Director James Comey and others in the Obama administration for unequal treatment under the law.

Kristian Saucier, 31, pleaded guilty in 2016 to unlawfully retaining national defense information by taking six photos on his cell phone inside the submarine he was serving on in 2009.

Saucier said the pictures were taken as innocent keepsakes to show his family. The photos were deemed “confidential” after they surfaced, when someone found the sailor’s phone in the trash.

“We’ll highlight the differences in the way Hillary Clinton was prosecuted and how my client was prosecuted,” his lawyer, Ronald Daigle, told Fox News. “We’re seeking to cast a light on this to show that there’s a two-tier justice system and we want it to be corrected.”

During an appearance on FNC in March, Saucier argued, “Obviously, there’s two different sets of laws in this country, for the politically elite and for those lower-level individuals, Americans like myself. And I think that’s very upsetting on a basic level for most people. It should be.”

“I accepted responsibility. I didn’t go to trial. I pleaded guilty. I said, ‘Look, I made a mistake when I was a young kid, and my family still continues … to be punished for that mistake,'” the Navy veteran added.

“Whereas Hillary Clinton not only was not punished, but was allowed to run for the highest office in the country, and that should be very upsetting to the American people.”

“They used me as an example because of (the backlash over) Hillary Clinton,” Saucier said.

Because of his criminal conviction, Saucier struggled to find work after being dishonorably discharged from the Navy and serving a year in federal prison.

He ended up finding a job as a trash collector in Vermont, but struggled to make ends meet for his wife and their young daughter.

The family’s home went into foreclosure and their cars were repossessed while he was still in prison.

A week after Saucier’s appearance, Trump announced via Twitter that he was pardoning the former sailor.

“Now you can go out and have the life you deserve!” Trump wrote.

The presidential pardon clears Saucier’s criminal record.

“With a pardon there’s no magic wand that that gets waved and makes everything right,” Saucier said, “But I try to stay positive and look forward.”

The veteran now works on design and engineer projects for an industrial boiler company.

“Things are starting to go in the right direction,” Saucier said. “I work with a group of really great people, I get to use my skills set.”

Trump Didn’t Lose 1,500 Immigrant Kids, But Obama ‘Lost’ 4,159
BY JOE SAUNDERS 
MAY 29, 2018 AT 8:33AM
As far as media double standards go, it’s a double helping of hypocrisy.

For the past week, the mainstream media has been filled with headlines claiming that the Trump administration has “lost” almost 1,500 illegal immigrant children who were detained while crossing the border into the United States — from a widely circulated USA Today column to the old #Resistance standby CNN.

But in the latest media misfire aimed at making President Donald Trump look bad, it’s the liberal hero Barack Obama who ends up looking even worse — and the truth is coming from surprising sources.

The basic — and completely wrong — liberal narrative is that a Trump get-tough policy that separates children from illegal immigrants who have been caught trying to enter the country has ended up with authorities losing track of 1,475.

But according to The New York Times — the house organ of the Democrat Party and chief propaganda outlet for the anti-Trump movement — the real story is much different.

First of all, the children in this particular subset of illegal immigrants weren’t even with their families when they were caught. They were traveling unaccompanied by their parents, so there was no separation.

Second, they haven’t even been “lost” in the sense the media is implying.

Instead, they have been placed in the custody of relatives inside the United States who have not responded to follow-up efforts by the Department of Health and Human Services — often because they are illegal immigrants themselves, who have little interest in contact with immigration officials.

Do you think Democrats are being intentionally misleading?
Yes No

In other words, there are not 1,475 children wandering around the U.S.-Mexico border like some kind of dysfunctional Peter Pan story. They’ve been placed with families in the interior of the United States.

More to the point, an even greater number of children — almost three times as many — were “lost” in the same way by the allegedly all-good and all-caring Obama administration, according to The Times.

“Losing track of children who arrive at the border alone is not a new phenomenon,” The Times reported. “A 2016 inspector general report showed that the federal government was able to reach only 84 percent of children it had placed, leaving 4,159 unaccounted for.”

Does anyone remember CNN, USA TODAY or other mainstream media outlets attacking the Obama administration for deplorable treatment of illegal aliens?

The answer to that would be “no,” because the media and the Democrat Party didn’t have a vested interest in skewing the truth.

Things are different in the Trump years. And Trump’s new “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration — which includes criminal charges against every adult caught trying to enter the country illegally — is the latest front where liberals are attacking.

And if that means making up a lie that Trump’s policy has resulted in almost 1,500 kids being “lost,” that’s just part of the #Resistance strategy.

As reported by The Washington Post (another mainstream media enemy of the Trump administration):

“As mentioned before, the 1,475 children were not separated from their parents at the border. However, many who have expressed outrage online about family separations have been appending their tweets with the hashtags #WhereAreTheChildren or #MissingChildren, intentionally or unintentionally linking the two issues.

“Some who should have been better informed also conflated the two, implying that federal officials had lost 1,500 immigrant children who had been taken from their parents, when this was not the case.”

Preet Bahara, the former United States attorney for the Southern District of New York — a liberal hero who was fired by Trump in 2017 — was among those who, as The Post delicately put it, “should have known better.”

Well, there are a couple of things more shameful than that.

Lying to the American public, like Bahara is doing, is one of them. (For a layman to confuse immigration policies is one thing. For a former federal prosecutor to get a key element of an accusation wrong almost requires deliberate malice.)

For liberals in the media to denounce a sitting president for alleged inhumanity toward illegal immigrants for one problem, while ignoring a problem three times as big when his predecessor was in office is another.

The reality is, Trump and his administration haven’t “lost” 1,475 children in the way the media desperately wants Americans to believe.

The other reality is that Obama officials really did lose 4,159 children by the current standards of the media/Democrat industrial complex. And the currently outraged liberals never breathed a word about it.

Even in the Trump years, it’s a double standard that’s tough to beat.

Fake News: 
Top Liberals Blame Trump for ‘Awful’ Photos of Obama’s Migrant Detention Centers

Democratic politicians, journalists, and top staffers in Barack Obama’s White House whipped themselves into a frenzy Sunday, attributing “disturbing” photos of migrant detention centers to President Donald Trump — before discovering the photos were taken during Obama’s second term as president.
The first wave of viral photos, showing immigrant minors sleeping inside enclosed cages, were featured in an AZCentral.com article — but that didn’t stop far-left activists from decrying the photos.

Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau urged followers to “look at these pictures,” adding that the forcing the Trump administration to return the children to their parents was the “only debate that matters” right now.

Farveau, who later deleted the tweet, admitted to sharing photos taken under his former boss’s watch — but still found a way to shift blame onto the Trump administration.

“These awful pictures are from 2014, when the government’s challenge was reconnecting unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border with family or a safe sponsor,” he wrote.

“Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border.”

Viral Photo of Caged Children Actually from Obama Era, Nothing To Do with Trump

Activists attacked the Trump administration Sunday for its treatment of children who were detained at the border, based upon a picture that showed children sleeping in a cage.
There was only one flaw in the tweets that called the treatment “inhumane” and laid it at the door of President Donald Trump.
The image was from an Arizona newspaper report from 2014, during the second term of former President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller reported.
Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau began the avalanche of tweets with a since-deleted comment.
“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible,” Favreau wrote. He added a link to the image, which was part of an Arizona Republic photo gallery from 2014.

Context for the picture was provided by Fox News, which noted that the picture was taken at a time when immigration officials had detained more than 1,000 children who illegally crossed America’s Southern Border.
Controversy over the image reflects the debate over immigration policy that separates children from their parents.
Trump has called for changing that policy as part of broad-based immigration policy reform.

Obama administration supplied weapons which landed in Al Qaeda’s hands

It has long been suspected by many that former President Barack Obama refrained from doing all he could to “degrade and destroy” various Islamic terror groups, and some even suspect that he covertly helped them.

Now a report has emerged which appears to confirm that his administration allowed, if not facilitated, the transfer of weapons into the hands of terrorists affiliated with Al Qaeda and the Islamic State group.

According to Right Wing News, citing a report in December 2017, an international arms monitoring group known as Conflict Armament Research claimed to have uncovered proof that Obama’s CIA supplied weapons to terrorist groups.

Those researchers studied the weapons recovered from retreating Islamic State group fighters over the past several years.

They found that some heavy weapons supplied to Syrian “freedom fighters” had been used by the terrorists within mere months after delivery.

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who has bashed both former President George W. Bush and Obama for their Middle East military ventures, stated, “It’s no accident that US-supplied weapons made it into the hands of ISIS.”

She suspects that Obama wanted to further destabilize the region to gain control over vital resources, and said, “The CIA wanted the weapons to get into the hands of the extremists.”

“I think it is incorrect to assume that the CIA/US is losing control of its weapons,” Sheehan added. Instead, she believed “Washington and the CIA wanted the Daesh forces in Syria to have control of many U.S. supplied heavy weapons, including missiles.”

The CAR researchers also claimed to discover that it wasn’t just weapons that quickly ended up in the hands of terrorists, but also ammunition and chemical precursors used to make explosives.

Though purported to be a covert operation, it was widely known that Obama’s administration was giving weapons and supplies to the so-called “moderate” rebels fighting against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, weapons which were quickly handed over or captured by Al Qaeda and Islamic State group fighters.

Do you believe Obama supplied weapons to terrorist groups?
Yes
No
Next
Thankfully, President Donald Trump put an end to that program in 2017 while ramping up the fight against the brutal terrorists.
If this report of Obama’s people knowingly allowing weapons to end up in the hands of terrorists is true, he needs to be held responsible for what is essentially crimes against humanity and treason against the United States.

Obama, Kerry Slam Trump’s Withdrawal from Iran Deal
May 9, 2018
Obama, Kerry slam Trump’s withdrawal from Iran nuclear dealFormer President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
call the president’s announcement to nix it a “serious mistake.”
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
It was the signature deal of Barack Obama’s presidency, and President Trump’s dramatic announcement Tuesday that he was withdrawing from it engendered very sharp reactions from both the former president and his secretary of state, John Kerry, who oversaw the negotiations with Iran.
Obama reiterated the main argument he made when Congress was debating in 2015 whether to agree to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the formal name of the nuclear accord.
“Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East,” he said, adding that a nuclear Iran “could embolden an already dangerous regime; threaten our friends with destruction; pose unacceptable dangers to America’s own security; and trigger an arms race in the world’s most dangerous region.”
He also invoked the upcoming US negotiations with North Korea as another reason why the president’s decision was “so misguided.”
“The consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to, risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers,” his statement continued.
What Obama left out of his statement is that the JCPOA was an international compact that was entered into by the United States only through an executive agreement signed by Obama. It was never a treaty ratified by Congress. The White House deliberately constructed it differently since a treaty needs to be approved by two-thirds of Congress, a hurdle which many believe the JCPOA never could have overcome.
Indeed, over 50 senators voted to disapprove the deal the three times they tried, while in the House of Representatives the various resolutions introduced against different parts of the deal were handily won by deal’s opponents. However, the requirement in this case was to get veto-proof and filibuster-proof majorities to kill the accord, and this could not be done.
Kerry claims withdrawal hurts Israel
Kerry’s condemnation of the pullout perhaps surprisingly mentioned Israel specifically as being a potential loser from Trump’s move, even though Jerusalem has always stood firmly against the accord and praised Trump unstintingly for keeping his campaign promise to get America out of the “horrible deal,” as Trump repeatedly called it.
“Today’s announcement weakens our security, breaks America’s word, isolates us from our European allies, puts Israel at greater risk, empowers Iran’s hardliners, and reduces our global leverage to address Tehran’s misbehavior, while damaging the ability of future Administrations to make international agreements,” Kerry said in his statement.

Prime Minister Netanyahu warned America that the Iran deal was dangerous. President Obama did not want to listen. He pushed through the horrible nuclear deal even though Netanyahu pointed out how dangerous it was.  Last week Netanyahu revealed Iranian documents that prove that the deal was based on Iranian lies. It is clear to all that Obama was either a fool who allowed himself to make a deal based on lies. Or, he was a dangerous leader who made a deal even though he knew Iran was lying. Which is worse?

Read more about Netanyahu’s bombshell speech revealing the Iranian nuclear documents.

Iran didn’t fear President Obama. Iran knew that he wasn’t a leader who kept his word. He was all bluster and bluff. Like his famous red line threat to Syria if it used chemical weapons.  When Syria used chemical weapons again, Obama did nothing. There is one thing worse than a leader not leading.  It is a leader who makes empty threats and whose words are meaningless.

He made America look like a fool. He put Americans in danger.  In addition, he endangered Israel and emboldened tyrants around the world to push the boundaries of peace and nuclear proliferation. He did all of this because Obama was too weak to do anything to stop Iran. So President Trump today has a choice. Continue to be played the fool like Obama by Iran, who hides their nuclear blueprints in secret vaults. Or President Trump can indeed ditch the phony Iran nuclear deal as he proclaimed and instead show us what real, strong, tough American leadership looks like. Our country needs it.

Bombshell Speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu Unmasks Iran’s Lies to the whole world

Prime Minister Netanyahu just made it clear that Israel has perfectly clear evidence – and tons of it – that Iran is full of it.  The Israeli secret service delivered 100% clear proof that Iran lied and continues to lie about nuclear weapons.
WATCH 2 VIDEOS
I just revealed something the world has never seen before.
Netanyahu continues to be at the forefront of the fight to keep nuclear weapons out of Israel’s most dangerous foe – Iran.  Prime Minister Netanyahu clarifies exactly what Iran did to Obama, the EU, and all foreign leaders.  Iran lied to them – plain and simple.  The Obama administration said hundreds of times that Iran was in compliance with the signed agreement.  In truth, Iran did not only NOT comply with the agreements.  Iran had no intention whatsoever to comply with the agreements.  Barack Obama turned Iran’s compliance into a policy point.  This was 100% false.  The Iranian leaders are liars.

Worthless Signatures
The strong incontrovertible evidence that Israel just displayed serves as a powerful reminder.  Dictators sign pieces of paper without any intention of fulfilling anything they sign on.  In Pre-World War II Europe, Neville Chamberlain was proud of what he accomplished when he met Adolf Hitler.  He got a signature!  The Soviet Union believed that Germany would not invade them after Germany and the Soviet Union signed an agreement to split up Poland.  But German signatures were simple tactics of stalling an enemy till a future date.  The signatures meant nothing else to the Germans.  The signatures of the Iranians were nothing but a stalling tactic by the Iranians.  Barack Obama was duped by the Iranians – period.

President Trump needs to decide how to get out of the horrible and worthless agreement with the Iranians.  But any reasonable person now knows that lies and dictators go hand in hand.  The Iranian leadership are dictators.  We need to treat all Iranians statements as potentially true – but probably lies.  We need to judge the Iranians on one thing – actions.

This message must be shared and spread worldwide to unmask Iran’s lies!

US Drone in the Hands of Iran
Just a few weeks ago, an Iranian stealth drone flew into Israeli airspace. This Iranian drone was not an Iranian invention. Back in December 2011, Iran successfully landed a fully functioning US made Lockheed Martin Sentinel stealth drone –  that it then copied. This was one of the biggest intelligence losses to the USA. At the time, then President Barack Obama asked Iran to return the stealth drone. Obviously, they did not return the drone. Former Vice President Dick Cheney said at the time that the intelligence loss was significant and that the USA should have gone into Iran to retrieve the drone. He said “It would have been a fairly simple operation.”

Instead of honoring Obama’s request to return the drone, Iran stole the intelligence information.  They then reverse engineered it and developed their own stealth drones. It was this drone that was then flown into Israeli airspace that Israel shot down.

A Disastrous Obama Policy Direction
This was only one of the numerous blunders of then President Obama with the Iranian regime.  Obama also handed over to them a total of $1.7 billion in cash!  Much of that money was then transferred to various terror organizations and operations run by Iran around the Middle East. Even according to the State Department, this country is one of the biggest state sponsors of terror in the world. It is beyond boggling that a US President would willingly hand over so much money – in cash – to such a rogue actor on the world state.

His policy direction vis-a-vis Iran began right when he began his first term in office.  In 2009, President Obama offered a “new beginning” on Iranian State TV.  He said very clearly, right from the start, “my administration is committed to diplomacy.”  What he forgot to mention is that he prioritized diplomacy over the most basic priorities of a President.  Instead of doing everything necessary to protect America and the freedom-loving world from the growing threat of Iranian terror and nuclear capabilities, he held talks.

Today, we in Israel are on the frontlines, paying the price for eight years of Obama’s mishandling of Iran. Instead of stopping their terror and nuclear ambitions, he emboldened them.Obama’s gift to Iran that just threatened Israel like never before

Obama Denounces Trump’s Decision To Pull Out of Iran Deal
By Avi Abelow -  May 9, 2018 4674 0
President Trump is continuing to trash Obama’s legacy and Obama is livid. Obama’s response to Trump killing his nuclear deal shows how delusional Obama was as a US President.  He always manages to sound so “presidential,” but if you really think about what he says, you see that he was a dangerous fraud!!!

Obama’s Response
“Leaving the (Iran nuclear) agreement could embolden an already dangerous regime; threaten our friends with destruction; pose unacceptable dangers to America’s own security, and trigger an arms race in the region’s most dangerous regime.”

He himself admitted that Iran is a DANGEROUS regime!  Yet his nuclear deal only pushed off the dangerous Iranian regime from attaining a nuclear bomb for a decade, not stopping them. Even wore than that, Obama himself positioned the Iran nuclear deal to help dangerous Iran become the regional power it wanted to be. He says so himself in this video interview back in July 2015. “Iran Will Be And Should Be A Regional Power.”
Leadership?
Is this the type of talk of a leader who wants to stop an enemy of the United States from being a threat to the USA?

In the FOX news video above, US Congressman Brian Mast (FL) replies to Obama’s reaction to Trump’s killing his nuclear deal. “If you look at the eight years of Obama’s administration, you see an administration that ignored and appeased our enemies that emboldened them.”

“You do not make peace with your enemies. You make peace with former enemies. And we shouldn’t have been trying to negotiate with an existing enemy.”

That was exactly the problem of Obama’s administration. They appeased US enemies and made the world a lot more dangerous. Thank G-d, Trump was elected President, and he is trying to undo the horrible damage that Obama did as President.

Leaders are only successful in stopping a war when they are willing to go the distance and go to war. President Trump knows that.

Presumably, Trump’s predecessor knew that as well, but he wanted to help Iran become a regional superpower. This, even though Iran is an enemy of the US, a dangerous regime, and are designated as a state supporter of terror by the US State Department.

How did Americans vote for that man to be President not once but twice?

Thank G-d we now have President Trump!

Nearly 22,000 ‘truly needy’ people died waiting for Medicaid under Obamacare
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/healthcare/22000-died-medicaid-obamacare.htm?
March 8, 2018

Nearly 22,000 ‘truly needy’ people died waiting for Medicaid under Obamacare
Action Sports Photography / Shutterstock.com
President Barack Obama’s biggest legislative “accomplishment,” and a major part of his legacy, is the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.” While it was hailed as a remedy to the supposed health care crisis, it ended up being one of the worst scams ever perpetrated on the American people.

Now the true cost of Obamacare is becoming known—and that cost is being measured in not just dollars, but human lives. A new study by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) found that nearly 22,000 “truly needy” Americans have died while languishing on Medicaid waiting lists — even as Medicaid expansions under Obamacare enrolled millions of able-bodied people.

Obamacare Penalizes the Truly Needy
Obamacare was sold to Americans on the premise helping the needy get medical coverage. As recently as late 2016, liberal media outlets were still touting the benefits of Obamacare while claiming that then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was the better presidential candidate in part because she would uphold the controversial act.

And yet, people with critical needs still aren’t getting the help they need. Skylar Overman, an Arkansas girl born with a rare condition that requires full-time care, waited for over 10 years on a Medicaid waiting list to get the help she needed — and as of last fall, she’s still waiting, even as Arkansas expanded Medicaid to enroll nearly 300,000 people.

According to the FGA study, the home and community-based waiver services program, or HCBS, allows states to extend Medicaid services to people who might otherwise be institutionalized. HCBS recipients include people like Skylar, who have “severe intellectual disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and mental illnesses, among other debilitating conditions.”

Under the program, people who would qualify for a nursing home or another long-term care institution can instead receive needed services at home or on an outpatient basis. As FGA explains:

Benefits for these vulnerable individuals can include homemaker or home health aide services, personal care, adult day health care, habilitation, respite care, day treatment, psycho-social rehabilitation services, clinic services for individuals with chronic mental illness, and more.

However, states can also limit enrollment — and after the cap is reached, applicants are placed on waiting lists. Some wait for years, even decades.

Medicaid Expansion Diverts Funds
Under Obamacare, many states opted to expand Medicaid in 2016, spending billions to enroll “a new class of able-bodied adults,” while at the time, these same states had nearly 250,000 needy people on their HCBS waiting lists. As the FGA study authors point out:

While Obamacare did not create these waiting lists, it is increasing the likelihood that truly needy individuals will never get the help they need by diverting billions of dollars to able-bodied adults.

In Maryland, nearly 300,000 more able-bodied adults signed up for Medicaid under the Obamacare expansion, 103% than the program could hold. Meanwhile, 8,495 Maryland residents died while waiting on the state’s HCBS waiting list.

In Louisiana, over 450,000 people have been enrolled under the Medicare expansion. But over 5,000 people died while still waiting for HCBS services.

Overall, nearly 22,000 people have died while still waiting for services, according to records from a dozen states obtained by the FGA. But since some states don’t keep records of waiting list deaths, the real number is likely even higher.

How Can This Be?
Obamacare was designed to help the needy—at least that’s what Americans were told. Now, billions of dollars are being spent to provide coverage for healthy Americans — and the needy are still waiting for help.

President Donald Trump has said he would repeal Obamacare and “develop a great new health care plan.” He faces an uphill battle, but unless he can fulfill that promise, more Americans will die while waiting for help that isn’t coming.

UH OH! Obama In Talks With Netflix To Develop Radical Left TV Series [Details]
https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/uh-oh-obama-talks-netflix-develop-radical-left-tv-series-details/
By Zack Jefferson - March 9, 2018019
Barack Obama refusing to leave the public spotlight.

Doesn’t he know his 15 minutes are up?

SHAME.

The Obamas are now negotiating with Netflix to develop a series.

From Downtrend:

Netflix is apparently too successful and needs to hemorrhage some cash. They’ve already dropped millions on flops from Dave Chapelle and Will Smith so now they want to pay Barack Obama big bucks for a TV series even liberals couldn’t bring themselves to watch. Remember how boring he was as president? Now imagine that in TV show form.

The Daily Wire has more:

The real first reality star president is in talks with Netflix.

On Thursday, The New York Times reported that former First Couple Barack and Michelle Obama are in talks with Netflix concerning a potential series of shows for the streaming service.

According to 44, his administration was scandal-free.

He actually said that.

From Washington Examiner:

Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a thinly veiled shot at President Trump and his administration during a close-door speech in Boston last week, saying that his White House “didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.”

Obama made the comment Friday while addressing attendees of the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Strict rules were put in place prohibiting the sharing of images and video of the off-the-record speech.

[…]

“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said. “I know that seems like a low bar.”

He also said, “You didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House.”

Breitbart has more:

But Obama failed to mention reports of his press secretary Robert Gibbs’s cursing at Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama. Gibbs left the administration soon after.

Obama admitted there were arguments among his “team of rivals” in the White House but said it was more about people trying to solve tough issues.

“I did have a strong bias towards people who just wanted to get things right, get things done, as opposed to people who were obsessed with ‘I want to be right. I want to prominent. I want to have my name in the headlines,’” he said. “And if you can create that culture, then you are more likely to be successful.”

Just go away – PLEASE!

RINO Senator Does the Unthinkable, Gives Obamacare to Illegal Aliens…Americans OUTRAGED
By Zack Jefferson - March 8, 2018058
Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is retiring after this current term.

Thank goodness.

America doesn’t need any more fake Republicans in Congress, nor do we need RINO’s helping the left.

Check out Flake’s plan to give DACA recipients access to Obamacare.

It’s a doozy…

From Washington Times:

Sen. Jeff Flake’s bill to enshrine the DACA program in law would also make the illegal immigrant “Dreamers” eligible for Obamacare — including perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars in annual taxpayer subsidies to buy health plans, Congressional scorekeepers said this week.

Mr. Flake, Arizona Republican, tried to power his bill through the Senate on Tuesday, but was blocked by another senator.

His bill would offer those who qualified for the original DACA program a new, three-year legal status, which would include permission to work in the country legally, in exchange for $7 billion — or about three year’s worth of funding — for President Trump’s planned border wall.

Flake says Trump will face a challenger from his own party in 2020, per The Hill:

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Friday he wouldn’t rule out a 2020 challenge to President Trump while predicting that the president “will have a challenge” from someone in the Republican Party.

Flake, an outspoken critic of Trump who is not running for reelection to the Senate, told CNN’s David Axelrod in an interview that while he is not “planning” to run as an independent, he “wouldn’t swear it off.”

“I do think the president will have a challenge from the Republican Party, I think there should be,” Flake said. “I also think that there will be an independent challenge, particularly if the Democrats insist on putting somebody up from the far left of the party.”

It’s as if liberal Republicans think helping the left will make them more likable to the uninformed. That’s not how this works, Jeff.

Flake duped his constituents for far too long.

Obama’s Swampiest Agency Gets Swift Justice, Taxpayers Are Cheering
https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/obamas-agency-gets-taxpay/
By Gary Maher - March 7, 2018011
Washington, D.C. has been known as a swamp for some, numerous years. For the most part, since it is worked in a swampy, sloppy territory of America. Be that as it may, in the previous 100 years or somewhere in the vicinity, “The Swamp” doesn’t actually mean the physical zone of muggy, soggy humidity any longer.

Rather, it remains for the officials that “work” for the federal government and get a paycheck, however, don’t generally really do their jobs. Also, over that, their jobs are untouchable, so they will never be let go.

What’s more, to make an already difficult situation even worse, a specific swamp agency in D.C., a Barack Obama most loved no less, chose to take $124 million from the American individuals to give themselves an increase in salary as another extravagance office building.

In any case, now, they are at long last paying for their hoity-toity self-importance. The wages of sin has happened to them as a stranger-than-fiction plague.

Via Daily Caller:

Rats — actual rodents — are infesting the newly renovated Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s headquarters, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Hundreds of the agency’s employees moved into their beautiful $124 million headquarters across the street from the White House in October as construction was still underway. Upon entering, they discovered rats also were making it their home, according to two sources who spoke to TheDCNF on the condition of anonymity.

The $124 million price tag was double the original $55 million estimate and 25 percent over the $99 million estimate approved by Richard Cordray, the bureau’s first director. White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has temporarily taken over the reins of the troubled bureau.

This is out and out silly. Truly, it is morbid humor, however, it is likewise righteous humor. They overspend and overspend on an office space overhaul, just to get the endowment of vermin in each cleft of their building. That is precisely what they merit since they in themselves are D.C. rats who feed off citizen cash and make a greater number of issues than solutions.

Maybe this will be a good lesson to each official who still believes that they can escape with working insignificant hours for high pay and benefits.

We can dare to dream that they will at long last comprehend the way that their paycheck implies that we are their bosses. We The People merit persevering, amazing people who expect to take a shot at our benefit rather than prevent and hurt us.

Until at that point, we will simply need to watch the Deep State go to the rats, actually.

What do you think about this? Do not hesitate and write your thoughts in the comment section below.


Huge News: Trey Gowdy Just Got Tools To Hold Obama & Holder To Accountable For Major Scandal – Fast & Furious
https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/trey-gowdy-fast-and-furious/
By Gary Maher - March 7, 20180156
The Justice Department announced Wednesday it would hand over documents related to the Obama-era Fast and Furious gun scandal to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Former President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder had previously refused to produce documents requested by Oversight, documents which former Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz at the time called “critical” to pursuing the investigation.

The original Fast and Furious operation — conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — somehow allowed nearly 2,000 firearms to find their way into the hands of Mexican cartel members.

Firearms connected to the program were found at multiple crime scenes in both the United States and Mexico, including the murder scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

“The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in Wednesday a statement accompanying the announcement. “This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious.”

Current Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on the release.


Bombshell Ruling: Federal Judge Drives A Spike Into Obama’s Coffin, Says Trump’s Order Will Stand
https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/bombshell-federal-judge-drives-spike-obamas-coffin-says-trumps-order-will-stand/
By Zack Jefferson - March 7, 2018058
A federal judge has dismissed the challenge to President Trump canceling DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), driving a stake directly through the Obama administration’s declaration.

This is a big win for team Trump and Americans everywhere.

Check this out…

From The Hill:

A federal judge in Maryland on Monday dismissed a challenge to President Trump‘s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

“This Court does not like the outcome of this case, but is constrained by its constitutionally limited role to the result that it has reached,” Judge Roger Titus said in his opinion. “Hopefully, the Congress and the President will finally get their job done.”

“An overwhelming percentage of Americans support protections for ‘Dreamers,’ yet it is not the province of the judiciary to provide legislative or executive actions when those entrusted with those responsibilities fail to act,” Titus continued.

Continued:

The Obama-era program permits immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to stay in the country without fear of deportation.

The Trump administration moved to end DACA last year and allowed lawmakers on Capitol Hill six months to come up with a permanent fix for the program, with the deadline expiring on Monday.
Dreamers and immigrant rights groups across the country have legally challenged the move to end DACA.

BOMBSHELL: FBI Informant in Uranium One Scandal Drops DAMNING Info Against Obama (Details)
https://www.usapoliticstoday.org/bombshell-fbi-informant-uranium-one-scandal-drops-damning-info-obama-details-2/
By Zack Jefferson - March 7, 2018061
Douglas Campbell, the FBI’s informant in the “Uranium One” scandal, gave written testimony to three Congressional committees.

He accuses the Obama administration of aiding the Russians in their attempt to gain power and influence over the United States.

Kind of a big deal.
Here’s the scoop…
From Daily Wire:

The informant, Douglas Campbell, told congressional investigators on Wednesday that Moscow sent millions of dollars to the U.S. with the expectation that it would benefit the Clintons, while Hillary Clinton “quarterbacked a ‘reset’ in US-Russian relations” in her role as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, The Hill reported.

Campbell said: “I was frustrated watching the U.S. government make numerous decisions benefiting Rosatom and Tenex while those entities were engaged in serious criminal conduct on U.S. soil. Tenex and Rosatom were raking in billions of U.S. dollars by signing contracts with American nuclear utility clients at the same time they were indulging in extortion by using threats to get bribes and kickbacks, with a portion going to Russia for high ranking officials.”

Campbell also added: “I remember one response I got from an agent when I asked how it was possible CFIUS would approve the Uranium One sale when the FBI could prove Rosatom was engaged in criminal conduct. His answer: ‘Ask your politics.”

Here are a bunch of key facts:

Campbell participated in closed-door interviews with the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence and House Oversight and Government Reform committees.

-Campbell said that Russian nuclear officials told him that Moscow hired an American lobbying firm, APCO Worldwide, because it was in a unique position to influence the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton in particular.

-Democrats are aggressively trying to discredit him but are having little success as “the FBI found Campbell’s undercover work valuable enough to reward him with a $50,000 check in 2016.”

-Campbell says that the FBI told him that his work was “briefed to President Obama as part of his daily presidential briefing,” which would mean that Obama was aware of the crimes committed by the Russian officials.

-The FBI forced him to pay $500,000 of his own money to Russian officials as bribes to facilitate his cover, and the bureau never reimbursed him despite their praise of his work and the fact that the ordeal was so stressful that he developed serious, life-threatening illnesses.

It wasn’t until years later in 2015 that American businessman Daren Condrey, whose company Transportation Logistics International, plead guilty to conspiring to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and conspiring to commit wire fraud, according to the DOJ.

Russian national Vadim Mikerin, who was a top official of the Russian nuclear arms subsidiary Tenex and would later become president of Tenam the American subsidiary of Rosatom, was also sentenced in December 2015. Mikerin, who only plead guilty to money laundering, was arrested for a racketeering scheme that dated back to 2004. He was sentenced to 48 months in prison.

Continued:

Boris Rubizhevsky, another Russian national from New Jersey, who was president of the security firm NEXGEN Security, was also involved in the conspiracy and plead guilty to conspiracy to commit money laundering in 2015. He served as a consultant to Tenam and to Mikerin. Rubizhevsky was sentenced to prison last year along with three years of supervised release and a $26,500 fine, according to a recent Reuters report.

And Mark Lambert, 54, a co-owner of Transportation Logistics International, was charged this month on an “11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering,” as stated in the DOJ press release. Lambert’s charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Mikerin in order to secure contracts with TENEX, according to the DOJ release.

YIKES!

BREAKING: House Oversight Calls For Special Counsel To Investigate Obama’s DOJ
By Gary Maher - March 7, 2018020
Remember Loretta Lynch? Former President Obama’s head of the DOJ, who was accused more than once of being on the shady side of the law, is now under the gun as the House Oversight Committee dropped the “special counsel” bomb in an effort to investigate FISA abuse.
This could rock the foundations of DC should the dirt come to the surface and it appears it may just happen…
DailyWire reports:
On Tuesday, House Oversight Committee members called for a new special counsel to be appointed to investigate crimes involving bias and FISA abuse at the Obama Department of Justice.
Making the official request to the DOJ were Republican Reps. Trey Gowdy (SC) and Bob Goodlatte (VA), the chairmen of the oversight and judiciary committees respectively.

Obama Foundation reluctant to sign community agreement over presidential library, Chicago residents outraged

Obama Foundation reluctant to sign community agreement over presidential library, Chicago residents outraged

Chicago community organizers are just now discovering something about former President Barack Obama that conservatives have known for years: that the 44th president considers himself too good for common folk.

Obama has apparently turned his back on the same Windy City activists he was once proud to call his own — and they’re not taking it lying down.

Community benefits agreement
At issue is a community benefits agreement (CBA), “a contract between a developer and community organizations that requires investments in, or hiring from, a neighborhood where a project is built,” according to Politico. The Obama Library South Side Community Benefits Coalition has demanded that the Obama Foundation sign such a document, which, according to The Washington Times, could include demands such as:

“Frozen property taxes within a two-mile radius of the Obama Center.
A trust fund for local public schools and small businesses.
80 percent of library construction jobs must go to South Side residents.”
Jeanette Taylor, the education director of the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization, confronted the former president on the CBA issue in September during a video conference.

“The library is a great idea, but what about a community benefits agreement?” she asked, according to the Times. “The first time investment comes to black communities, the first to get kicked out is low-income and working-class people. Why wouldn’t you sign a CBA to protect us?”

Wrong answer
The response Taylor received wasn’t at all satisfactory. Obama began by referring to his past experience in Chicago.

“I was a community organizer,” he said. “I know the neighborhood. I know that the minute you start saying, ‘Well, we’re thinking about signing something that will determine who’s getting jobs and contracts and this and that’…next thing I know, I’ve got 20 organizations coming out of the woodwork.”

So that would be a no from the former president. Politico further reported:

The answer infuriated Taylor, who pays $1,000 a month for the Woodlawn apartment she shares with her mother and two children, and is worried that the Obama Center’s cachet will drive up neighborhood rents. Months later, she is still furious at the former president.

“He got a lot of nerve saying that,” Taylor told Politico. “He [has] forgotten who he is. He forgot the community got him where he is.”

She has a point. During Obama’s 2008 run for the White House, he repeatedly referred to his experience as a Chicago community organizer — but where is he now?

Other community organizers
And Taylor isn’t alone. Other Chicago area groups have been rebuffed by Obama. Politico reported:

Since 2016, more than a dozen local groups — neighborhood organizations, labor unions and tenants’ rights activists — have come together to form the Obama Library South Side Community Benefits Coalition, which is pushing the library to account for local needs.

Obama now finds himself on the receiving end of the same demands his younger self once made to crusty Chicago politicians he derided as “ward heelers.” But, as the dispute plays out, Obama the former president is far more powerful than the City Hall bureaucrats and state senators he once badgered for resources — maybe too powerful for organizers to rally against.

The Obama Presidential Center is expected open by 2021 at a projected cost to taxpayers of $175 million. According to NBC, the overall cost of the library could reach over $1 billion.

What is perhaps most ironic about the situation is that the Obama library would likely gentrify the neighborhood around it — which is precisely what the community organizers are worried about, as they believe it will lead to members of their community being slowly forced out of the area.

The former president, on the other hand, seems perfectly happy with the outcome. No one ever accused him of being consistent.
