As most of you have heard by now this past Friday, former president Barack Hussein Obama got a lot of left-wing media attention for doing what former presidents tend to never do to the current president in office. Attack them publicly. But since the current president is Donald Trump it seems all bets are off.
Now what the media at large refused to report is that aside from the fact that the former president attacked the current president, there were only a total of 750 people in attendance at the Orange County California event which was housed in a theater that can hold up to 7500 people.
Obama campaign rally in leftist California had a grand attendance of: 750 PEOPLE. @realDonaldTrump regularly fills massive arenas. MT got 12,000! Indiana got 11,000! West Virginia got 13,600! Obama could only get 750. Muh Blue Wave. #MAGAhttps://t.co/8mNNp0lv20

Here is what the left-wing publication Think Progress had to say about this:
“About 750 people attended the event at Anaheim Convention Center, where Obama delivered a short speech centered on unity and the “politics of hope.” And, after a story about getting kicked out of Disneyland when he was caught smoking in the Magic Kingdom after a concert as a teenager, Obama issued an impassioned critique of Trump and the state of American democracy and encouraged the crowd to back the candidates he came to support.
“We are bound by the notion that this is a government of, and by, and for the people… This is a government for everybody. It’s not for sale. That’s what we believe in,” he said.
“He added later, “The biggest threat to our democracy, I said yesterday: it’s not one individual, it’s not one big super PAC billionaire – it’s apathy, it’s indifference. It’s us not doing what we’re supposed to do.”
“The former president praised the candidates he came to Orange County to stump for: Gil Cisneros, who is running in the 39th district; Katie Porter, a candidate in the 45th; Harley Rouda in the 48th; Mike Levin in the 49th; Josh Harder in the 10th; TJ Cox in the 21st; and Katie Hill in the 25th.
“What they understood is the stakes are high in this election,” Obama said of the group. “The fact is that if we don’t step up, things can get worse. When there is a vacuum in our democracy when we are not participating… other voices fill the void. The good news is, in two months, we have a chance to restore some sanity in our politics.”
“Ahead of Obama’s remarks, two Republicans took the podium, Katherine Amoukhteh, and Duraid Antone, to say they are supporting Democrats in the midterms.
“There is no shame in being a Republican, but there is shame in letting this political climate continue,” Amoukhteh said.
“A few minutes later, Antone, a veteran who said he was a registered Republican when he voted for Obama, spoke about his support for Rouda, who’s running against longtime conservative lawmaker Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).
“In these historically Republican-leaning districts, some Democrats hope they can convince Republicans to abandon their party this fall. In his speech Saturday, Obama said he wants to win over independent voters and even some Republicans — especially those who don’t recognize their own party anymore.
“But as the old cliche goes, it all comes down to turnout, and attendees Saturday said victory in November hinges on turning out voters who have been less active in past elections — and the hope that Obama can help bring people to the polls.
“[We have to] get the vote out. Huge,” Callae Walcott, who lives in the 25th district, where Katie Hill is running, told ThinkProgress as she waited to go inside the convention center. “The midterms are so important and it’s important to fire up and take every action possible to support the candidates running.”
“Another woman, Nadine Breslo, stood outside the convention center with a “Take back Orange County” sign as three anti-abortion protesters stood behind her with a megaphone proclaiming that Obama is a “jackass.”
“I am not happy with the way that our country is and when President Obama was our president, I felt safe. I felt comfortable. I think Donald Trump is a fascist. I think if he had his way he would be like Saddam Hussein,” Breslo, who lives in the 49th district, said. “I think that he is a psychopath. I think that he was involved… with the Russians in voting. That’s a sacred thing in our country. That is a traitor. That’s a Benedict Arnold.”
“Though Breslo couldn’t get a ticket into the event, she said she wanted to come down to the convention center anyway. Having Obama in the area, she said, was “wonderful.”
“I thought of all presidents, if I could see him, I would cry,” she added.
“Outside the convention center, a small handful of protesters in Trump regalia milled around as a long line filed into the ballroom. One man who refused to share his name because of “too much trouble with Antifa,” was clad in a Make America Great Again hat and carrying a poster board sign proclaiming that Trump was “winning.’”
As you can clearly see by the above left-wing spin, they clearly mention 750 people attended, but they don’t mention that the venue is capable of holding over 10 times as many occupants.
Chicks On The Right reported:
“750?! That’s it?! That is really odd – and this was reported by far left-wing outlet ThinkProgress, so it’s probably accurate.
“As the Right Scoop notes, it was held at the Anaheim Convention Center where arena theater seating can hold up to 7500 people. 750 people is a pretty darn anemic number.
“Especially compared to how many people Trump continues to draw, packing thousands into a stadium and still lines around the block.”
They are right, the Obama thrill that was going up and down people’s legs back in 2008 is now gone. The man can now not even fill a stadium to 11% of capacity in California. I guess the hope and change “magic” fizzled once people saw what the reality really was.

Kamala Harris Literally SPEECHLESS When Reporter Asks About Jussie Smollett Hoax – WATCH
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed the now-debunked attack on ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett was a modern-day lynching. “JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.” She had no evidence and now that it has been exposed as a hoax, Harris has nothing to say. Go figure.
When confronted over the hoax out of Chicago, Harris was literally dumbstruck and could not answer reporters over it. Smollett hired two Nigerian brothers and paid them $3500 at the time, promising $500 more when they got home to Nigeria, to stage a fake hate crime after an alleged racist letter Smollett received didn’t get enough attention. Upon hearing about the alleged hate crime, Harris accepted it at face-value despite the obvious holes in Smollett’s initial story.
Evidence has been uncovered from the hardware store where rope and bleach were purchased by the brothers who were acquaintances of Smollett’s. When confronted by a reporter on Monday asking her if her opinions regarding the Smollett incident have changed in light of the new evidence, Kamala Harris struggled to utter a phrase before side-stepping the issue. “Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked as the reporter questioned her about the “modern-day lynching” comment. Nice… that’s Politics 101 for corruptocrats.
“Um … I … I … Okay, so I will say this about that case, the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened,” she said. “And it’s something we should all take seriously whenever anyone, um, alleges that kind of behavior, but there should be an investigation. And I think that once the investigation has concluded then we can all comment, but I’m not going to comment until I know the outcome of the investigation.” Say what? Wow… that was simply unintelligible.
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman for the Republican National Committee, roundly criticized Harris for seemingly not remembering her being quick to blame Trump supporters for the Jussie Smollett attack. Harris has a convenient memory. “Kamala Harris had no problem using inflammatory rhetoric to tie the #JussieSmollettHoax to @realDonaldTrump & his supporters,” tweeted McDaniel. “Now that she has the facts, why can’t she even remember her divisive language? Why is she giggling about it?”
Harris has not even deleted her tweet in support of Smollett as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did. The California senator’s deflection reflects that of Cory Booker. He told people to withhold judgment until more facts came out. “The information is still coming out. I’m going to withhold until all the information actually comes out from on the record sources,” Booker said over the weekend. He just took Smollett’s claims at face value with no evidence as Harris did.
“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker tweeted in response to the attack. “To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
.@KamalaHarris's face and pause when asked about her previous tweet that the attack on Jussie Smollett was a "modern-day lynching" is something to behold

I think we’ve seen enough facts to know the whole thing is yet another leftist hoax. We don’t need to wait any longer on this incident – it is not aging well for the left. The Chicago police are no longer looking at Smollett as a victim here.
From Fox News:
“Smollett, who is black and openly gay, claimed he was assaulted by two men who yelled racist and anti-gay slurs– as well as the phrase “This is MAGA country!” — as Smollett was walking to his Chicago apartment. Chicago police arrested and questioned two Nigerian brothers in the alleged attack, but released them on Friday without charges. Investigators said they’ve requested a follow-up interview with Smollett, but the actor’s representatives said there have been no plans to meet with police for the time being.”

You know it’s funny… Harris and Booker never call for due process when accusing the right. But now they’re all for it because it’s one of their own. How hypocritical can you get?
For instance, during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, they immediately believed Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault against the judge without a shred of evidence or a corroborative witness. And despite evidence vindicating Kavanaugh, they smeared him night and day. After all, he’s not a Hollywood celebrity or anointed by the left. I guess that makes all of this okay.

HA Ha! McConnell To Call Vote On Ocasio’s Green New Deal, Schumer’s PISSED
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who on a good day looks like he’s sucking on a lemon, ripped into Republicans for planning to force a vote on the Green New Deal. They want everyone on record concerning where they stand for this insanity. Schumer doesn’t want the Dems pinned down and he’s really ticked at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the vote. McConnell is trolling the Dems and I love it.
Schumer called the plan a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.” Considering Schumer wrote the proverbial book on dirty politics, he should know. Actually, it is a valid move to make politicians say they are either for or against the Green New Deal. “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “Now that is what the American people hate about Congress — the pointless partisan games.” No sir… they hate the corrupt leftists tearing us apart.
Dear @SenateMajLdr McConnell:
Stop trying to distract from the fact that the GOP has no plan on climate change.
I'm headed to the Senate Floor to issue you a challenge to admit for the first time:
1. Climate change is real
2. It's caused by humans
3. Congress needs to act
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 14, 2019
Schumer isn’t the only Democrat calling foul here. They are terrified of being tied to a plan that would literally destroy the US and everything we hold dear. But most of the Democratic field running for the presidency in 2020 has already rallied behind the deal. Even so, Schumer, joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said: “Bring it on.” He said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” and added: “Do Republicans?” Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with greed, graft, and corruption.
McConnell promised a Senate vote on the Green New Deal last week. He wants Democrats to go on record. Nice tee-up for the 2020 race and reelecting Trump. “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”
The Green New Deal was put forth by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to transform our economy and way of life in an attempt to fight faux climate change. It recently came under scrutiny after revelations that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and suggesting air travel could be made obsolete. And don’t even get me started on eliminating cow farts.
“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the now-deleted document also read. Then Ocasio-Cortez and her minions tried to claim that the doc was concocted by Republicans. She lied her ever-loving head off.
From Fox News:
“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.
“While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.
“President Trump has already begun attacking the Green New Deal, claiming it would “shut down American energy” and describing it as “a high school term paper that got a low mark” during a rally Monday in El Paso, Texas.
“Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said that McConnell’s plan to bring the plan to the vote will only show “just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people.”
“Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, a co-sponsor of the plan, also decried McConnell’s move.
“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,” Markey said.”
This is an attempt to wake America up and show them what will happen if the Democrats seize control. Al Gore never went away, he just co-opted the millennials and power-hungry climbers in the Democratic Party.
