Obama Just Got Humiliating Surprise At His First Campaign Rally That Could Be His Last

Published

on

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.

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.

Trump: ‘Hard To Believe’ Obama Didn’t Know What FBI Was Up To In 2016

Published

on

President Trump said Wednesday that “it would certainly be hard to believe” that former President Barack Obama was unaware of what the FBI was up to in 2016. Well, of course, he knew. In fact, I would wager he orchestrated all of it. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. I’m almost certain he was pulling the strings and running the war room here.

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference today as the lightly redacted Mueller report was released. He put to rest the conspiracy theories and quelled the rabid Trump hatred by pointing out there was no collusion with the Russians or obstruction of justice. Trump tweeted out, “Game Over!” Indeed, it should be but the left will never give up this bone.

Trump praised Attorney General William Barr, saying “he’s grabbed it by the horn.” It would certainly seem that he has. The guy is fearless. Now, the left is calling for Mueller to have to testify over all this. No matter what they do it won’t change the fact there is no there-there and they are not going to get any dirt on Trump. Give it a rest already. Two years and millions of dollars later, they have nada.

From The Daily Caller:

“The conversation turned to several former Obama-era officials, most of whom are likely to be investigated in the coming months as Barr has pledged, and Trump touted the fact that he had called attention to them as “one of my great achievements, actually.”

“The president also had strong opinions when it came to whether or not Obama was aware of what the FBI was doing. “How is it possible that he didn’t know?” he asked. “I mean, we’re talking about pervasive, horrible things that were happening.”

“It would certainly be hard to believe that he didn’t know what was going on,” Trump concluded.”

That is the understatement of the century.

“Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said. “President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time to investigate the liars who instigated this sham investigation into President Trump, motivated by political retribution and based on no evidence whatsoever.”

From the Washington Examiner:

“That theme — “turning the tables” on the Democrats — or some variation of it, was what the Trump campaign ran with immediately after Attorney General William Barr delivered the Mueller report to Congress. Team Trump issued a fresh campaign video with that language as it replayed a series of prominent Democrats insisting over the course of the nearly two-year-long Mueller investigation that the president was guilty of collusion.

“Another staple of the campaign’s messaging: “Investigate the investigators.” The Republican National Committee, working in tandem with Trump 2020, was using similar language in series of press releases, as it emphasized that Russian meddling occurred while Barack Obama was president.

“Bottom line: Not only did Mueller confirm that there was no collusion, we also learned the full extent of how much the Obama administration failed to act while Russia messed with America’s electoral process,” read a missive from RNC rapid response director Steve Guest.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign will no doubt use the Mueller report as a political weapon and at this point, it is one of many that the Democrats will gleefully bludgeon themselves to death with in 2020. Forget hoisting yourself by your petard… these morons are TRYING to commit political suicide. It’s glorious to watch. Popcorn-worthy incompetence and radicalism even.

There is no doubt in my mind that the hunters are about to become the hunted here. I suggest they start with Barack Obama because he knew everything that went on and nothing happened during his administration without his blessing.

REPORT: HUD To Crackdown On Illegals Taking Advantage Of Public Housing

Published

on

Trump is a master at timing. His administration is proposing a new rule to try to block some 32,000 illegal immigrant-led families from claiming public housing assistance, saying it’s unfair to hundreds of thousands of Americans who are stuck on waiting lists. And it is. This is long overdue and I applaud Ben Carson and President Trump on this move.

HUD let Congress know this week that it intends to implement the new rule, kicking off a schedule of publication and notice and comment that could have the plan finalized later this summer. That’s if the darned Democrats don’t get in the way again… which they will. The plan would scrap Clinton-era regulations that allowed illegal immigrants to sign up for assistance without having to disclose their status.

From the Washington Times:

“Under the new Trump rules, not only would the leaseholder using public housing have to be an eligible U.S. person, but the government would verify all applicants through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database, a federal system that’s used to weed illegal immigrants out of other welfare programs.

“Those already getting HUD assistance would have to go through a new verification, though it would be over a period of time and wouldn’t all come at once.

“We’ve got our own people to house and need to take care of our citizens,” an administration official told The Washington Times. “Because of past loopholes in HUD guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens. As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.”

“Illegal immigrants’ access to taxpayer-funded welfare and other benefit programs has long been controversial.

“It was considered a non-starter for Democrats when they wrote Obamacare a decade ago, and they excluded illegal immigrants from the health law. But the party’s attitude has changed and now some Democrats are pushing to expand the 2010 law to include unauthorized migrants.

“Polling, though, suggests Americans remain opposed to public benefits flowing to illegal immigrants, and President Trump has suggested it’s time to crack down on loopholes and interpretations that have allowed them to do so.

“In the case of Section 8 housing assistance, there are competing laws that have created confusion.

“In 2017 the HUD inspector general investigated illegal immigrants in New York who were using public housing under a special program for people with HIV or AIDS, and found that the government had never clearly stated whether housing was a federal public benefit subject to a 1996 ban for unauthorized migrants.

“Further complicating matters, Clinton-era rules specifically allowed “mixed” immigration status families to gain housing benefits. As long as one person in the home is an eligible U.S. resident, a family can qualify. The eligible person doesn’t need to be the head of the household, and could even be a minor child.

“The government created a system that allows people to apply for housing assistance as “non-contending,” meaning they decline to say whether they were legally in the country. Benefits are supposed to be adjusted on a pro-rated basis to account for those non-contenders.”

The immigrant-rights activists on the left are lining up to oppose this rule as I write this. They claim that penalizing mixed-status families means hurting the legal residents in those families, who are often young children. Too bad, they are here illegally. If they want to partake of American benefits, let them become legal immigrants first, not second. This same argument is being used to debate tax credits that, while claimed on behalf of citizen children, are paid to illegal immigrant parents.

Give the GOP credit… they’ve done their best to tighten these tax rules and regulations but the obstructionist Democrats have stopped them at every turn.

Trump’s administration is making the argument that lengthy backlogs for housing assistance make the new HUD proposal an obvious change. There are millions of people waiting on that list. One in four families who would qualify for housing assistance actually get the benefit right now. Most of those waiting for HUD help are likely poor seniors or people living with a disability. These people are being hurt by those that don’t belong here legally.

From The Daily Caller:

“HUD intends to roll out a proposal over the next few weeks that prohibits any illegal immigrant from residing in subsidized housing, even if they are not the direct recipient of the benefit. HUD currently estimates that tens of thousands of HUD-assisted households are headed by non-citizens.

“Families who are caught gaming the system by allowing illegal immigrants to stay with them either have to comply with the new rule or they will be forced to move out of their residence.

“Households will be screened through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, or “SAVE,” program.

“An administration official told the Caller that this is a continuation of the president’s “America First” policies.”

Did you know that the average waiting time to get housing assistance in the US is now 26 months? That’s outrageous. In progressive enclaves such as Los Angeles, you can wait more than four years. All because of illegal immigrants being allowed to break our laws.

Even Cher took notice of the idiocy here in a tweet she put out this week: “I understand helping struggling immigrants,” she said, “but my city (Los Angeles) isn’t taking care of its own.” She pointed out the 50,000 citizens that are living on the streets and who are below the poverty line and go hungry. Many are veterans who served their country only to have no place to return to and no help was forthcoming. They should have just come across the border. “If my state can’t take care of its own … how can it take care of more,” Cher wondered. Good question.

Trump found himself in agreement with Cher for the first time. “This proposal gets to the whole point Cher was making,” an administration official told The Times. Yes, it does. Faster, faster pussycat.
