Obama warns Americans about too much patriotism, and Donald Trump – on July 4 weekend

A reminder that among our blessings to be thankful for this Independence Day, the good riddance to our former President who we finally retired. So while many are wringing their hands about tweeting by our Donald, recall what a truly “malignant” force Obama was, who never missed an opportunity of dissing us and our Country.

 

While most Americans are gathering with family and community this weekend to celebrate the most exceptional country in the history of the world, Mr. Hope and Change is halfway around the world talking doom and gloom — and criticizing his successor.

Barack Obama visited Indonesia this weekend, and in a series of appearances, attacked love of country and the policies of Donald Trump.

The Guardian reports:

The former US president said some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary on the US as well as Indonesia.

“It’s been clear for a while that the world is at a crossroads. At an inflection point,” Obama said, telling a Jakarta crowd stories of how much the capital had improved since he lived there as a child.

But he said that increased prosperity had been accompanied by new global problems, adding that as the world confronts issues ranging from inequality to terrorism, some countries – both developed and less developed – had adopted a more aggressive and isolationist stance.

The Leftist Way

The Leftist Way. Guest post by Mustang.

It is difficult not to appreciate the way leftists demonstrate against those with whom they disagree.  Their first tool out of the box is ad nauseam repetition of the rather asinine charge that conservatives are fascists, apparently not understanding what a fascist is or how such governments work. In the recent British election, the leftist tripe under Jerry Corbyn attacked conservative member of parliament Sheryll Murray by painting swastikas over her election posters.  That wasn’t enough, though; they also made personal attacks against her on Face Book … and then some slug urinated on the door to her office.  How nice.

The amusing part is that these so-called neo-communists seem not to understand that there is but a hair’s breadth between these two criminal organizations.  Let’s review, shall we?

Fascists generally head authoritarian one-party states within which no democratic election of representatives is possible without the consent of the head of state, where free markets are unable to survive due to rampant corruption, where the state seeks to stamp out individualism, and where the state controls the press and all other media.

Communists are generally lead by an authoritarian state within which political parties are approved in advance, where the democratic election of representatives is s sham, where free markets are unable to survive because the state exercises central control over every aspect of the economy, within which individualism is discouraged, and where the state controls the press and all other media.

Yes, these are mere summaries and because of the near-psycho nature of communist doctrine, the communist theory is much more complicated than we can fit into a one paragraph brief … and yet, it doesn’t take much to understand that each of these —far from being at opposite ends of a political spectrum— pretty much follow the same tenets.  Each subverts the will of the people, each controls the media (either through force or co-opting the media), both hate those who generate wealth and jobs, and both suppress individual liberty.  Did I mention they are liars of the first order?

In addition to the disgusting behaviors of the Corbyn crime family, Sheryll Murray, aged 61-years and a widowed mother of two, was threatened with physical violence and harassed on social media —you know, the kind of thing that cowards do … a new form of bullying where one can hide behind their tweets and Face Book smears.

We see this sort of thing in the United States, as well. It is, after all, the Leftist Way. We have come to know the political left as a collection of human filth too stupid to feel ashamed of their tawdry behaviors.

Nancy Pelosi on being swept in special elections ‘I am proud of the way we lost’

Pelosi: ‘So you want me to sing my praises? And other assorted nonsense Nancy has to say on the election. I don’t know why the GOP is adding to the fuel about Nancy and she should go. It is the best thing we have going at this point. Below the clip, a reaction.

 

“We have harmony…..”

 

 

Keith Ellison ‘Resistance Summer going awesome’ day after loss

I am enjoying the “WINNING” thanks to the Donald. When I caught Muslim Keith Ellison’s remarks over at the Beacon, I thought this is great, the Democrats think they are winning too. He also opines his support for his Nancy Pelosi. What a wonderful world! At this rate, the GOP will rule for life. I’ll spare you the clip of Ellison’s remarks, wander over to the Beacon to see it. Instead I will give you a photo of the Dems “winning!”

One day after his party suffered a loss in the Georgia special House election, Democratic National Committee vice-chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) announced that his party’s “Resistance Summer” is “going awesome.”

Ellison, a rising star in the Democratic party’s progressive wing who narrowly lost a race for DNC chair in February, was speaking to a DNC Live event on Wednesday night.

“First of all ‘resistance summer’ is going awesome,” Ellison said in an interview with Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress. “It’s going well. The Democratic Party is on the move. We are getting across this country. We are fighting every single day.”

(Local Democrat official to me this morning: “What the hell is wrong with all the polls?? We can’t win anything! The Democrat brand is dead!”)

His comments came the day after Democrat Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in the special House election in Georgia’s sixth Congressional district. This left Democrats zero for four in special elections since last November, in spite of $35 million in spending.

Hillary Invokes Watergate During Speech – Forgets To Mention She Got Dumped from Watergate for Being “Liar”

During her commencement address to graduates at Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton compared the investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump administration to the Watergate scandal. She fails to mention her hubby Bill’s little problem.

For the record… Nixon was not impeached – Her husband Bill was.

And Hillary’s former boss during the Watergate hearings said she was a “liar” and “unethical” and refused to hire her. H/T: Gateway Pundit

Why the Clintons just won’t go away

I am tired of my twitter feed getting clogged up with the latest absurd tweets coming from Chelsea. For some reason, people seems to think I should read them. I read this excellent post that answers much of why the Clintons just don’t-won’t go away. Worse why Chelsea is a non-stop media trove of useless information. Here is some of it from Vanity Fair:

In Vanity Fair, T.A. Frank exhorts elite American liberals in the strongest possible terms to resist their obvious temptation to turn Chelsea Clinton into a political item:

PLEASE, GOD, STOP CHELSEA CLINTON FROM WHATEVER SHE IS DOING
The last thing the left needs is the third iteration of a failed political dynasty.

Snip…

…..The answer is that even though Hillary Clinton lost two elections, the Clinton machine—the one the family has been building ever since Bill left office in 2001—is still very much in place. Walter Russell Mead described it like this during the 2016 primaries: “The machine gathers the cash that provides perches and incomes to Clinton loyalists; the loyalists keep the publicity machine pumping, keep the networks of contacts and patronage refreshed throughout the vast Clinton network, and staff what amounts to a permanent campaign. This is what party machines used to do: provide incomes for the army of operatives who would jump into action to make sure the machine stayed in office.”

The loyalists who make up this apparatus want—or even need—for the gears to keep spinning. And for that, the machine needs to offer the promise of future influence. Otherwise, donations to the Clinton Foundation would dry up; speaking engagements would become less lucrative; Clinton-backed spin organizations would wither; and dozens of jobs would disappear. All this is to say that the strange persistence of Chelsea boosterism does not come out of nowhere; it is the product of a supremely well-organized political organization revving its engines. And it will not be shut down voluntarily.

FBI has names of CIA leakers, says former U.S. Attorney

One can only wonder why Trump doesn’t get on this and rid himself of the Obama rats nipping at his heels. The plants were left there to do what they could in destroying his administration. As far as the GOP? Only to happy to go along with letting Trump and his appointees spin in the wind with non support. Here tis:

secretCIA officials know who has been leaking classified information to The New York Times and The Washington Post, and the officials have passed that information on to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a former U.S. attorney for President Ronald Reagan.

“[This] confirms former Obama administration officials are in fact disclosing and discussing classified information with the press.”

The New York Times revealed in a report Wednesday that President Obama’s staffers left bread crumbs for anyone looking to undermine the Trump administration throughout the federal government. The revelation by The Times indicates how a steady drip of embarrassing leaks has tormented the new administration of President Donald Trump.

Some of the information reportedly planted by Obama officials had to do with alleged ties between President Trump’s “associates” — The Times does not define that term — and Russian officials.

Apparently, the Obama administration wanted to leave plenty of ammunition for leakers to keep hot the theme that Trump and his allies are connected to Moscow.

But diGenova, well-known former U.S. Attorney, said the bigger story is the ongoing war of leaks between entrenched federal employees, loyal to Obama, and the new Trump White House.
