Outraged Democrats Are looking For Obama


Tensions are still escalating at the border, and former President Barack Obama is noticeably missing from the political circus. The Democrats are quietly complaining that Obama hasn’t done anything for them lately.

In an in-depth article by NY magazine, the writer details the hand-wringing and increasing anxiety among Democratic Party members who are desperate for leadership going into the 2018 midterm elections.

As one leading Democratic operative put it: “If [Obama] were willing to go way over the line and get arrested, or something way out there, that would be a galvanizing event.”

According to NY mag, Obama is modeling his post-presidential life after former President George W. Bush, by staying out of sight.

These days, Obama is focused on three things: saving his legacy, writing his memoirs, and raising cash for his Obama Foundation and his presidential center and museum in Chicago. All three of those things involve himself.

The Dems are looking for Obama to lead them into the midterms elections however Obama is obviously laying low and focused on his own agenda.

Senator Blames Obama for ‘Exacerbated Racism’ That Helped Elect Trump


What will Former President Barack Obama be blamed for next?

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) blames former President Barack Obama for the racial divide in America that helped sway voters to elect Donald Trump by a landslide. Santorum said Obama could have brought the country together but instead he increased racism in part by his response to police shootings.

Santorum made the accusations during a heated State of the Union panel discussion about racism on CNN Sunday.

The panel discussed a new book written by a former Obama adviser who quoted Obama as saying “What if we were wrong” about what the American people wanted from a president. “Maybe we pushed too far,” Obama said. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.”

Karine Jean-Pierre, a senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, said it was “pretty horrific” to see voters rally behind Trump during the 2016 election.

There was an uproar. You saw the Tea Party. You saw obstruction by Republicans time and time again,” Jean-Pierre said. “It is kind of problematic. It says a lot about this country, and Donald Trump tapped into it.”

Santorum added that Obama played a part in increasing racism that helped elect Trump to office.

What’s being ignored here is the role that Barack Obama played in all this,” Santorum said. “You can’t just go from ‘well, we elected our first black president’ and ‘all of a sudden we get Donald Trump.’ There was something in between those two things.”

According to Santorum, “many, many, many people” saw Obama being racist himself, particularly after police shootings involving white cops killing unarmed black men.

Every time there was a controversy with someone of color involved, he took the side, many times, against the police,” Santorum said. “He did it over and over and over again.”

Santorum added that Obama was “someone who could’ve brought this country together” but failed to do so.

Jean-Pierre, who sat beside Santorum on the panel, defended Obama, saying the few instances when Obama did speak up after police shootings he was standing up for people who had been unjustifiably treated.

She asked Santorum if he was referring to the shooting of Trayvon Martin in 2012, but time was running out and the panel discussion ended.

Santorum got the last word in, saying, “This president could’ve [brought us] together. He didn’t. He divided us.”

Seriously?

‘I’m happy the witch is dead’: Fresno State professor sparks outrage as she celebrates the death of Barbara Bush


She called her a “racist who raised a war criminal” and now she’s under fire for her tweet about the former first lady.

Randa Jarrar, who teaches in the English department at Fresno State, took to her twitter page last night and wrote a series of tweets condemning Bush, who died at the age of 92 after a battle with lung disease and congestive heart failure.

‘Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. Fuck outta here with your nice words’.

The tweets generated controversy online, with many saying that her words against Bush were inappropriate.

Randa Jarrar is a hate-spewing psychopath, yet she remains gainfully employed at Fresno State.

Another user added: ‘If you’re a student in one of Randa Jarrar’s classes please do the right thing and boycott her until she is forced to resign. Who would want to learn English when she spews this vile crap?’

But that only fueled Jarrar’s rhetoric, and she continued to voice her opinion in several more tweets before eventually setting her account to private.

In one tweet, she said she couldn’t be fired because she has tenure, going so far as to tag the school’s president in the post.

The school has tried to distance itself from Jarrar, saying that her tweets were written as a ‘private citizen’ and they don’t reflect the university.

‘Professor Jarrar’s expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress,” he added.

‘On behalf of Fresno State, I extend my deepest condolences to the Bush family on the loss of our former First Lady, Barbara Bush’.

Jarrar, a Muslim, was born in Chicago but grew up in Kuwait and Egypt, before returning to the U.S. after the first Gulf War.

Her writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Salon.com, The Rumpus, the Utne Reader, The Oxford American.

She is the author of two books, the coming of age novel ‘A Map of Home’ and a story collection – ‘Him, Me, Muhammad Ali’.

Trump likes “Golden Showers” According to Former FBI Director James Comey


President Donald Trump called former FBI director James Comey an ‘untruthful slime ball’ and ‘a PROVEN LEAKER AND LIAR’ who ‘should be prosecuted’ for putting classified information in view of the media.

James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired,’ Trump wrote on Twitter. ‘He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH.

Trump’s extraordinary tweet, an unprecedented moment in American history, came after excerpts from a televised interview were broadcast on national television, with Comey saying it’s ‘possible’ the most salacious detail in the anti-Trump ‘dirty dossier’ is true. Comey said in advance of next week’s high-profile book release that despite having access to the nation’s most sensitive law-enforcement intelligence for years, he still can’t dismiss the possibility that Trump was involved with ‘golden showers‘ a sex act with prostitutes five years ago in Moscow.

The ‘golden showers‘ accusation first came to light in an unproven dossier of opposition-research material paid for by the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign and handed to the FBI during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Comey said he never told Trump that his political adversaries had funded the work, but warned him during a ‘really weird’ post-election meeting that the information was circulating at the top levels of the federal government.

‘It was almost an out-of-body experience for me,’ he said. ‘I was floating above myself looking down saying, “You’re sitting here briefing the incoming President of the United States about prostitutes in Moscow”.’

Comey suggested the claim was still unproven but hedged his bets, saying only that ‘when I got fired it was unverified.’ Which is probably why Trump fired him.

He said he never told Trump that he didn’t believe it ‘because I couldn’t say one way or another.’

If Former President Barack Obama Had A “Stormy Daniels”


All hell would have broken loose!!!

The hypocrisy of the republicans is unbelievable, when there is so much scandal and unethical tactics surrounding their representation in the white house.

If there has been one single, unbroken theme spanning President Donald Trump’s 14 months in office, it’s been his inability to stay quiet, even when silence would seem to serve him best. And on the “Stormy Daniels” interview currently flooding media headlines, the president ain’t saying a word.

Unlike Melania, Michelle Obama would never have another woman in the headlines for having spanked her husband a.k.a. the father of her children in a sordid affair and lived to tell it. The fact of the matter is, as far as Trump’s behavior goes, he’s a hot orange mess! The drama surrounding his presidency speaks volumes about his behavior, mentality and inability to lead a country.
