Oh There was Collusion All Right

from IBD:

Did Obama, Brennan And Clinton Illegally Collude To Take Trump Down?

As the saying goes, a fish rots from the head down. Well, so do bad governments. Recent revelations about the behavior of President Obama and his CIA director John Brennan in pushing the bogus Russian collusion investigation suggest that’s been the case.

The release of the FISA application by the FBI to investigate alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign and recent comments made by top officials are eye opening.

Not only did President Obama know about the investigation, he seems to have pushed it from the very beginning. read more

Obama Knew of Hillary’s Secret E-Mail

from The Federalist:

IG Report Shows Obama Lied When He Said He Knew Nothing About Hillary’s Secret E-mail Scheme

In 2015, President Obama told America he only learned that his secretary of state Hillary Clinton was illegally using a private email server to conduct public business after The New York Times published a story saying so. Today’s release of a Department of Justice inspector general report shows that was a lie.

“FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account,” the report says in a footnote on page 89. “Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.” read more

Netflix – Obama – Quid pro Quo

from the Daily Mail:

Obamas’ Netflix deal happened after streaming film studio’s chief content officer raised $600,000 for former president – who made his wife ambassador to the Bahamas

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos raised thousands of dollars for former President Barack Obama, who appointed Sarandos’ wife, Nicole Avant, as ambassador to the Bahamas.

Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama announced Monday they had entered a multi-year producing partnership with the online streaming service.

Sarandos and Avant bundled nearly $600,000 in contributions to Obama during the 2012 presidential campaign, the New York Post reported. 

Sarandos helped broker the deal, the Post reported, which is said to worth up to $50 million to the former first couple.  

The Netflix COO and his wife are longtime friends of the Obamas. Avant serve as ambassador to the Bahamas from 2009 to 2011. It’s common for presidents of both parties to appoint big donors to ambassadorial positions.

Avant’s father, Clarence, a music executive, also bundled nearly $450,000 for Obama’s presidential campaigns, the newspaper reported. read more

Trump Declares Dead, the One-Sided, Unsigned, Un-Agreed-Upon, Non-Agreement

On Tuesday night, Mark Levin was speaking of the Iran Nuclear deal that was just sent to the scrap heap by president Trump. To this Levin said it was a great decision. And he added that it was also a Statesmen’s decision with an accompanying Statesmen-like speech to the American people. I agree.

However, as Mark continued, he said something I disagree with and which I thing is quite important – ultimately the most important thing to be gleaned from this whole Obama/Kerry foreign policy scam.

That is that this deal wasn’t and isn’t foreign policy. It’s not a deal, an agreement, a treaty or anything else. It was merely a wish list laid out by Obama and his anti-colonialist, anti-Semitic brothers and sisters – no different than ones crafted for Santa Claus.

But then Mark went on to say that, “Barack Obama cut a deal with this rogue regime. John Kerry negotiated it.” Unfortunately this is not accurate. I know that Mark knows this and was merely making a point, but many less erudite do not – which is why I think it important to boil this Iran “agreement” down to its essence.

The essence of the agreement between the United States and Iran is as real as are unicorns. There is no essence because there is no deal. Never was one. read more

Where did Assad get the Chemical Weapons?

Once again, it is demonstrated that hollow diplomacy with no threat of anything behind it is utterly useless and all for show. And also monumentally naïve.

from Glenn Beck:

Obama got rid of all Syria’s chemical weapons, right? Nope.

More than 60 are dead and over 1,000 wounded in yet ANOTHER chemical weapons attack inside Syria.

It’s been exactly one year, to the week, since President Trump retaliated with 59 cruise missiles after the last chemical attack inside Syria. The images of men, women and children lying dead or foaming at the mouth, that reportedly prompted the President to strike last year, were just as gruesome and horrifying over the weekend. read more

Video Podcast – How is Trump’s Economy Doing?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss that the left has been attempting to downplay the startling Trump economic recover by saying that, “See, he didn’t the 3% growth target we were meant to expect.”

Yes, the economy that staggered along at 1.nothing percent to negative percent growth under 8 years of Obama has been eclipsed in short order by 2.3-2.6% growth, and this is somehow disappointing.

I discuss why the huge one day point drop in the Dow is not as big a deal as many would have us think.

And in my financial tip of the day, which is my only tip of the day, I discuss how Federal Reserve interest rate hikes will affect credit card debt and payments, and what to do about it read more

The People are not Happy about the Obama Library

from the Washington Times:

Obama’s presidential library ripped as ‘ugly waste of taxpayer resources’ by Chicagoans

Chicagoans in droves are venting their displeasure with President Barack Obama’s planned library, calling it an “ugly waste of taxpayer resources” and a “dangerous precedent” for the preservation of historic public parklands.

Recent letters to the editor published in the Chicago Tribune have overwhelmingly panned the Obama Presidential Center, which will take nearly 20 acres from historic Jackson Park and cost taxpayers $100 million in renovations to the surrounding area.

In a letter published on Jan. 26, John Deal of Dolton, Illinois, called the egg-shaped main tower and surrounding buildings “garish monstrosities that ruin the aesthetics of the surrounding parkland stolen from the taxpaying public.”

“Does anyone else think the artist’s rendering of the proposed Obama Presidential Center campus is ugly?” Mr. Deal asked. read more

WND Exclusive – True Size of the Fed Swamp will Blow Your Mind

“Draining the swamp” has become synonymous with both the Trump campaign and his presidency. Although it’s not a new saying, it has stuck with him since he first uttered it.

The phrase was first made popular by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, who also said he came to Washington to “drain the swamp.” Reagan’s sentiment was identical to Trump’s in that regard. Reagan also wished to roll back the size and scope of the federal government.

It was used again in 2007 by Nancy Pelosi, when the Republicans imploded and were tossed out, leaving her to be elevated to speaker of the House. However, her sentiment was just slightly different. She claimed to want to “drain the swamp” of over 10 years of Republican control of the House. read more

British Elite Special Forces to Allow Women

The British Special Air Service, or SAS, is the effective forerunner for American Special Forces. They rival American operators in skill and toughness.

The elite SAS was founded in 1941, for the North Africa campaign against the Nazis. This was six months prior to the Americans entering the war. Two years later, in 1943, began what we know today as the Navy SEALs. When they began, the SEALs were known as the Naval Combat Demolition Unit, or NCDU, and worked exclusive in the water.

For almost three quarters of a century, the British SAS, SEALs, SWCC, Army Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, Marine Corps Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, and Air Force Special Operations Squadrons, or AFSOC, have been male only.

Then President “Feminizer” Obama was elected and things began to change – for the worse. The era of politically correct military social experimentation was on. And what a perfect group of test subjects – ones who can’t quit or merely walk out. Soldiers, sailors, airman and Marines were trapped and forced to put up with new military P.C. directives. read more

Liberal States to Enact Climate Change Rules

Despite 23 Years of no Warming!

from the American Spectator:

President Donald Trump announced his administration would withdraw the United States from the agreement. These pledges have led four states — Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, and New York — to enact climate and energy policies based on the Obama-era social cost of carbon (SCC) calculations, which attempt to quantify the long-term economic damages associated with emitting one ton of carbon dioxide into the air. The Obama administration concluded for every ton of carbon dioxide released, $36 worth of damage occurs.

The SCC is based on flawed scientific and economic assumptions. As a result, the dozens of regulations imposed on the energy sector that were based on these calculations significantly and needlessly increase the cost of electricity without delivering any measurable environmental benefits. read more
