Obama 11

As many have likely heard, last Friday ex-resident Barry ‘O’ spoke for about an hour to a rather large audience at a major sports analytics conference at MIT.  His remarks were to be off-the-record and also to be kept completely secret by virtually all of those in attendance, who had to agree that they would not record, photograph, tweet, or report on the event before being granted a seat in the audience.  The most newsworthy thing about the speech is that the public was never supposed to hear it.  But in this day of modern electronics it’s no surprise that word managed to leak out.

And so, were it not for some enterprising attendee, secrecy would have been maintained.  Had that not been the case we would never know how it was that Barry made the rather bold, yet blatantly untrue, claim regarding how it was that his administration suffered not one scandal that embarrassed him or his team.  It remains unclear why Barry might have thrown in the little caveat by saying that there were no scandals “that embarrassed his team,” but for whatever the reason, he did.  Just as newsworthy is the fact he was able to make such a statement with a straight face.

Now our ex-president did admit, “There were mistakes.”  And he went on to further admit, “We’d screw up, but there wasn’t anything venal during eight years. I know that seems like a low bar, but you look at the presidency; that’s no small thing.”  However, conservatives remember the Obummer years a bit differently, citing the Fast and Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, wiretapping journalists, the terror attacks in Benghazi, delivering pallets of cash to Iran, and Hitlery’s illegal use of a private email server for government emails to name but a few of the many ‘scandals.’

The ex-president also insisted there was not much drama during his years in the White House either, all thanks to his superior leadership and organizational skills.  He said, “Typically speaking, you didn’t hear about a whole lot of drama inside our White House, and that was also rare.”  But Barry failed to mention reports of his press secretary Robert Gibbs’s cursing at Valerie Jarrett and first lady Moochelle. Gibbs left the administration soon after.  He did admit that there were arguments among his “team of rivals” but said it was more about people trying to solve tough issues.

Barry said, “I did have a strong bias towards people who just wanted to get things right, get things done, as opposed to people who were obsessed with ‘I want to be right. I want to prominent. I want to have my name in the headlines.’”  He went on to say, “And if you can create that culture, then you are more likely to be successful.”  Funny, but as someone on the outside looking in, what it looked like to me was that Barry had more of a bias toward people who were interested only in enriching themselves.  And the only ‘culture’ that was created was one of blatant corruption.

But let’s face it, scandals are made and reported on by the media.  And Barry was the media’s ideal politician, an anti-white socialist black man.  They were pushing him for president even before he even became a senator.  Barry could be roasting babies alive on the White House lawn and no mainstream media would report it, or even find a problem with it.  THAT’S why there were “no scandals.”  Even a live broadcast of him devouring said roasted babies would cause a flood of media adoration, gushing over his cooking skills and demanding that a Barry Roast cookbook be published!

Barry remains nothing more than a hypocrite. He talks about gun violence yet releases thousands of inmate felons from prison, many who will likely commit more crimes including murder using guns.  He supports sanctuary cities where illegal aliens run wild, many using firearms to commit crimes (it is a felony for an illegal alien to possess a firearm).  He releases illegal alien criminals (many used guns to commit murder and other crimes) from prisons instead of deporting them and many have committed additional murders and other crimes with illegally obtained guns.

His was the most corrupt administration in history, with far more scandals than any other president in American history.  And the media ran interference for him each time.  And because of his lack of conscience, the absence of a moral compass, and being a pathological liar, he was patently incapable of being embarrassed.  He worked as diligently as he could to destroy this Republic without the benefit of having any regret except for the fact that he could not fully complete the task. God intervened and prevented Hitlery from picking up where Barry left off to finish the job.

He is literally bragging about being a sociopath!  Lacking the ability to feel shame or embarrassment is sociopathic.  Lying about the Benghazi video, making impossible claims about Obamacare, calling 2009 the Summer of Recovery, the killing of Qaddafi and the Arab Spring debacle, trying to use executive privilege to shield Holder from charges, going around Congress and setting up DACA, bowing to foreign leaders every single time, calling America racist over and over, I could go on.  An ordinary, mentally healthy mature adult would have blanched at any of these. But NOT Barry, no way!

Barry’s ego is so huge that he still believes he can do no wrong.  People treated him like a God.  They praised him no matter what sort of political shenanigans he pulled. He’s the consummate liar, he likes to deceive, he blames everyone but himself for his own screw ups and was one of the worst presidents this country has ever managed to elect.  His entire eight years in office were a very dark time for us.  He’s simply too much of a narcissist to see it.  His mission was not to make America stronger and more prosperous, it was to “fundamentally transform” it into something else.

In the end, do you want to know what will be the most enduring legacy of the Barry ‘O’ years?  It’s not the scandals or the corruption committed by him and others in his administration or even his unlawful executive orders.  Barry’s presidency was a moment, an opportunity, that the American people provided to the Democrats, and the media, to prove that their way, their race-focused politicking, would work, and finally lift up this generation of Americans and this country to the ultimate ideals she stands for, and at last unite all us, which is what all Americans are hungry for.

And what did the Democrats, and all of their allies in the state-controlled media do?  Yep, they behaved badly. To prove themselves right, and being totally invested in their race-based President, they not only aimed to protect him at all costs, they aimed to slander anyone questioning any of his misdeeds, as “racists”, “bigots”, “Nazis”, “Fascists” and every other name they can think of.  And sensing the reluctance of his side to ever criticize him, Barry chose to take full advantage of it and to behave just as badly, boldly badly, audaciously badly, as only he could.

Barry screwed up everything that he came into contact with, not just for the country, but for African Americans and other minorities.  And I believe, in looking back at how the first African American President’s term in the White House turned out, at how he behaved AND how much he got away with impunity, as well as at the behavior of the Democrats, and the media, both towards their President and against his critics, that Americans will be reluctant to go down that road again for a very long time to come.  This is the ultimate ruinous tragedy of Barry and is his true legacy.

Barry can make all the claims that he wishes about his administration being the most scandal free and transparent in recent political history.  And there are many in the state-controlled media who will echo such claims, and many Americans who will, for whatever reason, believe them.  But the vast majority of Americans, whether they’re willing to admit it or not, know in their heart that this man devoted his entire time in office to doing all that he could to make this country weaker and less prosperous.  And sadly it is from this man’s presidency that this country may never fully recover.



Obama 10

I’m sure everyone will remember when ex-president Barry ‘O’ made a promise as he was finally leaving the White House that he would stay out of President Trump’s hair unless, in his words, it was something he considered to be really important.  But how many of us actually expected this liar to keep his word?  And it has been since leaving office, and with increasing frequency, that Barry has had very little trouble in finding those issues he views as being of sufficient importance that he has felt compelled to challenge his successor’s chosen position.

For instance, when President Trump pushed Congress last March to repeal Obamacare, it was Barry who, and in fairly short order, jumped in in an effort to save his signature program with one of his first public critiques as a ‘private’ citizen.  And it was in making sure to use President Trump’s favorite phrase for criticizing the Affordable Care Act that Barry said, “Reality continues to discredit the false claim that this law is in a ‘death spiral.’”  And Barry also seemed to go out of his way making the comment, “Likewise, this law is no ‘job-killer.’”

And it was after President Trump reversed Barry’s decision and pulled the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement back in June that Barry chose to criticize his successor’s move actually going so far as describe it as being “a difficult position to defend.”  Barry has been forced to watch President Trump unravel his legacy on what has become a broad front, from killing Obamacare’s individual mandate to building the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines, from rolling back hundreds of business regulations to ending amnesty for young illegal immigrants.

Cecilia Munoz, who served as Barry’s top domestic policy adviser in the White House, keeps in touch with our ex-president and others from his team, and acknowledges a deep level of frustration generally over President Trump’s actions.  She said, “President Obama’s legacy was never really about himself, but he cares a lot about tens of millions of people having access to affordable health coverage. That’s the very hardest part. Knowing that 13 million people will lose their health coverage as a result of the tax bill is incredibly painful.”

And while Ms. Munoz said that Barry very much appreciated former President George W. Bush staying on the sidelines after leaving office, apparently Barry remains unable to afford President Trump what would be the very same courtesy.  And I’m pretty sure that Barry was glad Bush chose to remain silent especially after Barry spent the entire eight years of his presidency doing nothing more than essentially blame Bush for everything that went wrong.  Everything Barry touched turned to shit!  And yet he was never to be seen as being the one at fault.

Munoz also said, “President Obama feels it is important to provide the same respect to the current administration that was provided to him by the Bush administration.”  This imbecile then went on to say, “President Bush and his team gave President Obama and his team the space to do our jobs, and did not come forward and comment on every decision that we made. And surely they disagreed with a lot of what we were doing.  So President Obama has been giving the same space to the current administration.”  Oh really?  Since when??

And it was during a rare interview that aired on BBC Radio, that Barry told Britain’s Prince Harry that “the things that are important to me haven’t changed.”  Barry said, “I still care about making sure that the United States and the world is a place where kids get a decent education, where people who are willing to work hard are able to find a job that pays a living wage.”  And it was again, without actually mentioning President Trump’s name, that Barry warned in the interview that leaders must use social media, such as Twitter, responsibly.

And so it has been since leaving office and over the course of the last year that Barry, when not badmouthing President Trump, has found things to keep himself busy, with his two favorite endeavors being: leading the Obummer Foundation, and working with ex-Attorney General, and that rather well-known and quite devout racist, Eric Holder at the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), which is promoting an array of Democrat candidates nationwide ahead of the 2020 census that will determine how new congressional districts are drawn.

In July, Barry headlined his first fundraiser for this organization, the NDRC, which raised $10.8 million in the first six months of 2017 to support Democrat candidates, to fund legal challenges against district lines drawn by Republicans, and to support ballot initiatives to create independent commissions to draw legislative maps.  And in October, Barry announced NDRC’s partnership with Organizing for Action (OFA), the spinoff of his reelection campaign, and encouraged OFA’s grass-roots activists to get involved in the fight against gerrymandering.

And it was some supposed advisor to Barry, and one who requested to remain anonymous, that said, “He’s mostly focused on the work of his Foundation: creating an institution to identify and lift-up the next generation of leaders.”  And it was this same advisor who then went on to say, “He also wants to be helpful to the Democratic Party, as you saw him support candidates around the country and he’ll continue to do so. But he firmly believes the best way for the Democratic Party to rebuild is support and grow the party’s roster of talented leaders.”

The best thing about the Obama presidency is that after eight long years of near endless corruption, it finally came to an end.  Never in the history of our great country has there been a more corrupt and dishonest president so determined to do as much damage as possible to the country he was elected to lead, than Barack Hussein Obama.  A man who came into office on a mission, a mission to “fundamentally transform” the one country that for the last 200+ years been the greatest beacon for freedom the world has ever seen.

And since having been removed from the spotlight, and with a bit more of his legacy disappearing every day, Barry seems to have become all the more desperate in his effort to remain relevant and to not be forgotten.  The mark left on this country by Barry is being made to fade away.  The long term goal here, should be one that gets us all to that point where more and more people will finally come to say, “Barack who?”  Because for a man who possesses an ego the size of Barry’s, to be forgotten would be a fate far worse than death.


Obama 04

Apparently Barry no longer feels that he can just sit idly by and watch as much of his ‘legacy’ is now being made to go up in smoke.  I say that because it was while at the John F. Kennedy Library to accept, of all things, the annual Profile in Courage Award, that Barry implored members of Congress to have what he described as the “courage” not to repeal the Affordable Care Act Sunday night.  It was in making his first public remarks since leaving the White House that Barry choose to talk about the proposed health care legislation just days after House Republicans voted to pass the measure 217 to 213.  And if we can believe any of what we’re being told, if passed by the Senate it would come to effectively ‘repeal and replace’ at least major parts of Obamacare.  That said, it’s far less then what I hoped for.

But anyway, Barry said, “As everyone here now knows, this great debate is not settled, but continues.”  And he went on to say, “It is my fervent hope, and the hope of millions, that regardless of party, such courage is still possible. That today’s members of Congress, regardless of party, are willing to look at the facts and speak the truth, even when it contradicts party positions.”  And he continued, “I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn’t take a lot of courage to aid those that are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential, but it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable, and the sick, and the infirmed.”  Adding, “Those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”  That said, I honestly don’t remember there being much of a debate back in 2010.

And as something we all became quite accustomed to over the eight long years that we were forced to endure his pompous self, Barry can be rather long winded, especially when talking about himself, or in this case about his ‘legacy’.  And as to be expected Barry laid it on thick as he went on to say, “I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right.”  He said, “I have said before that I believe what Dr. King said — that the arc of the moral universe bends, but it bends towards justice. I have also said that it does not bend on its own, but it bends because we bend it, and we put our hand on the arc and we move it in the direction of justice and freedom and equality and kindness and generosity. It does not happen on its own.”

And it was during his speech that Barry lauded those Democrat members of Congress who voted in favor of Obamacare in 2010 and then lost their seats because of it.  And it was of them that he said, “These men and women did the right thing, the hard thing, and theirs was a profile in courage, and because of that vote, 20 million people got health insurance that didn’t have it before.”  But you’ll notice that he mentioned nothing about the sleazy tactics that Democrats used in their effort to get this legislation to his desk.  Nor was there any mention made of the millions who were not able to keep their doctor, even though they liked their doctor, or those who could not keep their insurance, even if they liked their insurance, unless, of course, they were somehow able to afford the massive increases in both premiums and deductibles.

It has become pretty common knowledge, at least among those of us outside of the Democrat Party, that Obamacare has been proven to be nothing more than an abject failure.  I mean, where is all the evidence to support the claims that it is working effectively for anybody not already on the government dole?  And to make the claim that those who voted for Obamacare, and were then subsequently voted out of office, “did the right thing, the hard thing, and theirs was a profile in courage”, is to be plainly ignorant and patently dishonest.  These people didn’t even know what was in the bill, how can that ever be spun to say they did the right thing for the right reasons?  They sold their vote to defraud the American people out of the market for private health insurance, that’s what Obamacare has always been about.

And as the nation’s first black president, and coming into office holding a fair amount of promise, Barry essentially ended up being little more than a political thug of rather epic proportions, and was able to set race relations back 100 years almost single handedly.  And while I never voted for him, it was after he won in 2008 that I had genuinely hoped that he would take it upon himself to put country above his leftist politics.  But call me naïve, I really should have known better.  After all he did say that he would be working to “fundamentally transform” America.  And sadly, it was in pretty short order, assisted by his majorities in the Senate and House, that he set about doing just that!  In 2012 my expectations were much lower as what took place during his first four years made it obvious what his second four years would bring.

After all, it’s the simple truth is that Democrats need massive government dependency in order to thrive and that they are also the party of slavery, of lynching, of discrimination, of segregation and of the Ku Klux Klan.  And the sad fact is that they still are the party of slavery and oppression, and just because the chains are no longer visible it doesn’t mean that they don’t still exist.  And oddly, the effective head of the Democrat plantation remains, a black man.  And while our state-controlled media will continue to get down on their knees and carry his water, he’s become irrelevant in the minds of a majority of Americans.  But I must give the Democrats credit for going down with their ship, but it’s now been left to the rest of us try to salvage whatever it is that’s left and to rebuild up from that.

And I find it sad that, and practically since Election Day, Barry has been busily scheming to do all that he can in what has clearly been an effort to sabotage Trump’s presidency.  It seems that Barry has now assembled himself an army of agitators, said to number more than 30,000, who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency.  And Barry will command them from his not-so-hidden bunker less than two miles from the White House.  Since Donald Trump’s election, Barry’s group, ‘Organizing for Action’, has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.”  Determined to salvage Barry’s legacy, and his legislative priorities, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.

This latest speech was really nothing but more of the same political drivel that we heard nonstop from this guy for eight long years.  Just a bunch of soaring rhetoric and very little else.  And I noticed he’s still clinging to the 20 million number as having Obamacare.  And apparently his is unaware, so doesn’t care, that few can afford the rising rates and the fact that insurance companies have abandoned state after state.  There has always been a huge disconnect between our ex-president and all us ordinary folks.  The only area in which anyone can claim that Obamacare has been a success, is in the area of killing jobs.  Small businesses are what drive our economy, and it’s because of regulations created by Obamacare that they cannot afford to hire more people.  It’s 60 percent of small businesses that now want it repealed.

Barry’s policies could not have been more soundly rejected than they have been and by a broad range of people all across the country.  The Democrat Party has been pummeled in every election since 2010 and at every level of government.  And that’s why Trump won and Hitlery went down to defeat.  Barry put his reputation on the line in campaigning for Hitlery and warned the people what would happen if she lost.  People didn’t listen to him then and they’re not listening now.  He preaches only to his choir, the state-controlled media, leftist elitists from Hollywood and New York, supporters of illegal immigration, people with their hand out for more and more ‘free’ stuff, unions, anti-religion secularists, the list goes on and on.  I think we all knew that he wouldn’t be going away quietly, people like him never really do.


Obama 09

Something that I’m pretty sure will come as a surprise to no one is the fact that a biographer who is now writing a book about former President Barry “Almighty” claims that Barry once referred to America as being “a racist society” in what was an unpublished manuscript completed back in his law school days.  David Garrow, the author of an upcoming book on Barry’s life, said he uncovered lots of revelations about our former president during his research for the book.  Garrow, who spent a total of eight years working on the biography, has said that had any of those revelations he discovered surfaced during Barry’s presidential run in 2008, it’s likely that Barry’s candidacy would have been derailed.  Of course, we all know why it was that Barry’s many dirty little secrets never saw the light of day.

Mr. Garrow said Barry wrote hundreds of pages for a proposed book, along with his friend Robert Fischer in the early 1990s when the two were still in law school, but the manuscript was never published.  And it’s according to Mr. Garrow that Barry and Fischer wrote, “Racism against African Americans continues to exist throughout American society, an admittedly racist culture.”  And that the two went on to write, “Precisely because America is a racist society we cannot realistically expect white America to make special concessions toward blacks over the long haul. The greatest testimony to the force of racist ideology in American culture is that it infects not only the mind of whites, but the minds of blacks as well.”  It is according to Mr. Garrow that Barry reportedly wrote roughly 140 pages on race in that manuscript.

Now with all due respect to Mr. Garrow, I’m afraid I would have to disagree with him when he says that people would be “profoundly astonished” at how much of Barry’s life has not yet been made public.  Because if you possess any amount of commonsense at all, and can remember back to how it was that members our state-controlled media put themselves through all manner of contortions in their effort to keep well-hidden all of Barry’s rather questionable activities and associations, Mr. Garrow’s recent revelations will result in little more than a yawn.  He also questioned the accuracy of parts of Barry’s memoir ‘Dreams From My Father’, which was published in 2004.  Those of us who are not mind-numbed robots knew along that Barry was keeping a lot hidden and he got plenty of help in doing so.

And, I would argue, Barry’s deeply held racist beliefs essentially became a self-fulfilling prophecy.  He took every opportunity that presented itself to stir the proverbial ‘racial’ pot, and in the process cooked up just what he wanted, that being the worst race relations in decades.  In the beginning, Barry was presented as being in a unique opportunity to bring all people together.  But it was clear, nearly from the outset, that he was far more concerned about proving his theories of racism, than bringing anyone together.  And no offense to Mr. Garrow, but do we really need to buy a book in order for us to realize Barry is a racist.  He demonstrated that for eight years.  Barry is a born and bred Marxist, Moslem, and a racist.  This is blatantly obvious to anybody who has spent 15 minutes researching his life.

Everything Barry did while in office, and everything he had said or done since leaving office, revolves entirely around the issue of race.  Barry himself wrote that America is a racist nation.  Moochelle has always had a chip on her shoulder and a score to settle.  These people sat in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years!  They were fed hatred toward white people and America, and they ate it up.  Barry was, as Clint Eastwood so correctly said, the biggest “hoax” every perpetrated against the American people.  Even his economic policies were all based on race!  They were all about re-distribution which is largely about race.  His interference with local policing was all about race.  Health care was about large government takeover of 1/6th of the economy and was, in large part, about race or other “victim classes”.

Despite the fact that Barry was elected under what were essentially false pretenses, and despite the fact that his stated goal, upon getting himself elected, would be to “fundamentally transformation of the United States of America”, there were many, including myself, who, while we did not vote for him, did hold hope that he would rise above the politics of it all and prove himself to be worthy of his high office.  But sadly, Barry came to be, and for his entire time in office, ruled by his politics and a leftwing ideology the likes of which we had not seen in the White House for some time.  An ideology so ingrained within him, since his earliest days and would come to be reinforced as he entered into adulthood, that I suppose it made it impossible for him not to become the most leftwing president this country has ever had.

And now upon the arrival of our new sheriff in town, a shift is now under way one in which where the focus is now more on upholding the law than it is on bending over backwards in an effort to protect radicals like ‘Black Lives Matter’ which was built on the false narrative of “hands up, don’t shoot”.  Our new administration has made it clear that it is about “law and order”, and not favoring the takeover of the streets of some of our largest cities so the “rent-a-mobs” can break windows, attack innocent people and destroy private property.  We are entitled to the use of our streets.  Permits should be required for every protest gathering.  And the minute it gets disruptive of commerce or normal behavior of citizens, it should be shut down.  The rule of law must remain paramount.  We now have a president to supports that.



On Tuesday night I subjected myself to listening to as much of Barry’s ‘farewell’ speech as my poor stomach would allow.  Which really wasn’t for very long.  It seemed like his time in office was never going to come to an end, and I worried if America would actually survive.  And now that it’s almost over it’s amazing how fast the last few years have gone by.  And while I suppose we can say the country has survived, I think we can also say that it has been severely scarred, and to the degree that it may never fully recover.  Barry, the man who has embraced “change” throughout his presidency, used the word 16 times in his ‘farewell’ speech, but he did not directly mention the change Americans embraced in this past November by voting for Donald Trump.  At times, Barry — the “hoax and chains” president — seemed to warn against the kind of change Trump has promised.

I’m sure it can go without saying that Barry received a rousing reception from the many devoted followers who had assembled to herald his return to his hometown of Chicago, “where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved and they get engaged, and they come together to demand it.”  After extolling America’s “bold experiment in self-government,” Barry noted that Americans, “through the instrument of our democracy, can form a more perfect union.”  Barry went on to say, “So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional — not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change and make life better for those who follow.”  Barry also noted that “the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion, a constant widening of our founding creed to embrace all and not just some.”

In recounting what he views as being his many ‘accomplishments’ — including job creation, “marriage equality,” and the Iran weapons deal — Barry told Americans, “You were the change. You answered people’s hopes, and because of you, by almost every measure, America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started.”  Later in his speech, Barry said the nation must “uphold laws against discrimination.” And he went on to say, “But laws alone won’t be enough. Hearts must change. It won’t change overnight.  Social attitudes oftentimes take generations to change.”  And it was twice that Barry used the word “change” in connection with “climate change.”  And here he seemed to have a message for President-elect Trump, who has been skeptical of human-caused climate change.  But it’s Trump who represents the millions of us who view ‘climate change’ as being nothing more than a leftwing scam.

And it was when he got to the point in his speech where he started talking about ‘climate change’ that’s when I decided I had heard enough.  Barry said, “Take the challenge of climate change.”  And then he said, “In just eight years, we’ve halved our dependence on foreign oil; we’ve doubled our renewable energy; we’ve led the world to an agreement that has the promise to save this planet.  But without bolder action, our children won’t have time to debate the existence of climate change. They’ll be busy dealing with its effects: more environmental disasters, more economic disruptions, waves of climate refugees seeking sanctuary. Now, we can and should argue about the best approach to solve the problem. But to simply deny the problem not only betrays future generations, it betrays the essential spirit of this country — the essential spirit of innovation and practical problem-solving that guided our Founders.”

And I would find out the next morning how it was that during his rambling speech about himself and what a wonderful job he has done as our president, Barry made what was an apparent swipe at Russia.  Barry noted that “autocrats in foreign capitals” are challenging the “post-World War II order” by viewing “free markets and open democracies and and civil society itself as a threat to their power. The peril each poses to our democracy is more far-reaching than a car bomb or a missile. It represents the fear of change; the fear of people who look or speak or pray differently; a contempt for the rule of law that holds leaders accountable; an intolerance of dissent and free thought; a belief that the sword or the gun or the bomb or the propaganda machine is the ultimate arbiter of what’s true and what’s right.”

And I’m also told there were several instances where Barry talked about “the power of ordinary Americans to bring about change.”  And it was in speaking directly to the Americans who have supported his agenda that he had said “every American who lived and breathed the hard work of change, you are the best supporters and organizers anybody could ever hope for, and I will forever be grateful. Because you did change the world.”  And it was in his message to young people that Barry said, “you know that constant change has been America’s hallmark, that it’s not something to fear but something to embrace; you are willing to carry this hard work of democracy forward. You’ll soon outnumber any of us, and I believe as a result the future is in good hands.”  And in a message to “my fellow Americans,” Barry said he had one final thing to ask of them — “the same thing I asked when you took a chance on me eight years ago. I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours.”

Barry ended his speech with his old campaign slogan, “Yes we can,” adding, “Yes we did,” then a final “Yes we can.”  And when it was all said and done Barry had referred to himself more than 70 times in his farewell address.  Barry heavily promoted the speech, penning a blog post about it and appearing in a promotional video in the days leading up to the address.  Barry said “I” 33 times during the speech, “my” 20 times, “me” 10 times, and “I’m” or “I’ve” 12 times.  Barry has made a habit of focusing large chunks of his speeches on himself during his eight years in office.  Last July, for example, he mentioned himself 45 times over the course of a speech given at a speech for the slain Dallas police officers.  Yet in his silly little blog post promoting the speech, Barry encouraged Americans to tune in “because, for me, it’s always been about you.”  Oh really?

Much has been said about what Barry’s true and lasting legacy will be.  Will it be the decimation of his party, where under his ‘leadership’ his party has not only now lost the White House, but the Senate, the House, 12 Governorships, 13 Senate seats, 69 House seats, and an overall 1042 State and National seats.  Republicans now hold 33 governorships vs Democrats 17 and Republicans hold governorship and both houses of State Legislature in 25 States vs Democrats 5.  But then there’s his legacy of lies about keeping your doctor, keeping your healthcare and his using the IRS to target enemies.  Remember his claim that there wasn’t a smidgen of corruption in the IRS and how he would restore trust in government and his would be the most transparent administration in history?  The sad fact is that never before in our history has America had a president who so hated her and all for which she stands.

As for a little trivia, Barry’s farewell address on Tuesday night was longer than the combined length of the three two-term presidents who have preceded him — George W. Bush, ‘Slick Willy’ Clinton and Ronald Reagan.  The lengths of those three speeches were 21 minutes for Ronald Reagan, 13 minutes for George Bush and just 7 minutes for the old ‘Slickmeister.’  Meanwhile, Barry “Almighty” came in at 51 minutes.  Barry also broke from tradition by holding his address outside of the White House, electing to return to Chicago to do it in front of 18,000 at the convention center.  No surprise there I suppose, when you’ve got an ego as big as what this guy has, a simple speech given from behind the desk in the Oval Office simply won’t do.  Such a venue would come nowhere near to measuring up to ‘stature’ of the speaker.  However, I was surprised they didn’t bring the Roman columns out of mothballs.

And it’s what I view as being a rather fitting quote about Barry yet written over 2000 years ago that says, “A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. For the traitor appears not as a traitor, but speaks in accents familiar to its citizens and wears their face and their arguments. He appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation and works secretly to undermine the pillars of the city, infecting the body politic so it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared” (Cicero 106-43 BC).  It’s almost as if they had Barry in mind at the time these prophetic words were uttered.  But these words can also serve as a reminder that there have been other men like Barry, and there most certainly will be others.

I feel that Barry was desperately hoping to have a legacy that would have more closely resembled that of Ronald Reagan.  But one that was based on a doomed Statist political philosophy that can never produce anything but greater oppression, loss of liberty, a collectively poorer nation, more poverty, and misery among its citizens, while ultimately benefitting only the ruling elites that exempt themselves from the very standards that inflict this misery on others.  Barry continues to peddle his message of ‘hope and change’; but not a hope grounded in the inherent greatness and genius of “We the People”, ordinary citizens, who, if allowed to keep the fruits of their labors and kept free from big government social engineering and meddling, could achieve great things, but rather a hope grounded in a supposed benevolent big statist government, an institution which does not, and cannot, ever exist.

But like all despot, dictator wannabes, the johnny-come-lately is always self-deceived into thinking that he somehow knows better than the rest of us, but when met with the inevitable failure, resorts to rationalizing and blaming others, but never comes to question the legitimacy of his own political philosophy. The ‘hope and change’ that Barry “Almighty” offered us ended up pitting American against American, based on race, sexual preference and economic status; it created chaos and despair among all but the most blind Statist loyalists.  It’s the very ‘hope and change’ that we didn’t need, or will ever need, and the very type no nation should ever desire.  So regarding Barry, despite his obsession to have his own legacy that would come to be judged the equal of Ronald Reagan’s, there is one thing that is absolutely certain: he, Barry “Almighty”, is most definitely no Ronald Reagan.



It was in a recent letter addressed to the American people that Barry, once again, set out to explain the progress that he believes our nation has made under his stellar leadership.  And it was in that letter that Barry again made the claim that today it’s “almost” the entire planet that now believes this nation has become stronger and more respected during his time in office.  I’m guessing that Barry must figure that if he makes this claim often enough people will come to believe that it’s true.  Frankly I’m not sure who he’s trying to convince, himself or the American people.

But be that as it may, it was in this letter that Barry said, “And almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago.”  And in making the case for his claim, Barry cited, among other things, what he considers to be the nation’s progress in Iraq and Afghanistan and in “breaking the back” of the Islamic State, the Iran nuclear deal, and the opening of relations with the Communist government in Cuba.  Barry also cited a global “climate agreement” that he claims “could save this planet for our kids” as why America is more respected.

It was in this very same little fairytale of a letter that Barry went on to write, “We’ve drawn down from nearly 180,000 troops in harm’s way in Iraq and Afghanistan to just 15,000.”  And he went on to make a rather idiotic claim by saying, “With a coalition of more than 70 nations and a relentless campaign of more than 16,000 airstrikes so far, we are breaking the back of ISIL and taking away its safe havens, and we’ve accomplished this at a cost of $10 billion over two years — the same amount that we spent in one month at the height of the Iraq War.”  A claim that is patently false.

And as one who takes every possible opportunity to pat himself on the back, whether warranted or not, Barry went on to write, “At the same time, America has led the world to meet a set of global challenges.”  And he added, “Through diplomacy, we shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program, opened up a new chapter with the people of Cuba, and brought nearly 200 nations together around a climate agreement that could save this planet for our kids.”  Barry’s rather rosy picture of all that he has done ‘for’ America bears very little resemblance to reality.  It’s just all so bizarre.

All of which begs the question of just how delusional one man can possibly be. Remember the red lines he drew, and then ignored?  I really do have to wonder, is anyone really buying any of this political BS?  Or is this all just politicking in an effort to get that cushy U.N. job that he so badly wants?  I have yet to talk to any rational individual who actually believes that Barry has done anything other than to severely weaken our standing in the world!  My God, pick a spot, any spot, anywhere on the planet and more often than not it’s in much worse shape than it was in 2009.

There are new conflicts in Yemen, Syria, in Africa where the radical Islamists have taken hold.  Our arch rivals, the Red Chinese and the Russians, see Barry as a defeated if not disgraced American president.  The last time an American president left the office in so much disgrace was probably Jimmy Carter after the Iran fiasco. Vlad Putin reportedly said negotiating with Barry is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, craps on the chessboard and then proudly struts around like he won the game.  I think Vlad has hit the nail on the head.

And there were several things that were noticeably missing from Barry’s little letter to the American people, and for very good reason.   For instance there’s the little fact that the supposed economic ‘expansion’ that began in June 2009 has been the weakest since World War II, with real gross domestic product growth averaging 2.1%.  At 7 1/2 years and counting, it is also among the longest on record. But it hasn’t packed much of a punch.  Cumulative growth of 16.5% since the trough is well shy of the 38.4% increase during the 1982-1990 expansion and 42.6% from 1991-2001.

Now to be sure, the process of digging out from a financial crisis is more arduous than recovering from your basic recession.  And an aging population is curtailing labor-force growth, which in turn constrains how fast the economy can expand without generating inflationary pressures. Barry doesn’t mention that fewer regulatory impediments would have encouraged new business formation, which increased in 2015 for the first time since 2009, and capital investment, giving productivity a needed boost. Stronger economic growth would have lured folks back to the working world.

And there’s the matter of his ‘legacy’.  Barry doesn’t talk about how his continued personal popularity hasn’t had much of a trickle-down effect.  Or how in the eight years since he was first elected, Democrats have lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level.  He doesn’t mention how Republicans now control 4,170 state legislative seats compared with 3,129 for the Democrats, an all-time low. Republicans now hold 33 governorships and will have full control, governorship and both houses of the state legislature, in 25 states compared to 5 for the Democrats.

Add to that the fact that during that same period of time the Democrats lost 12 governorships, 13 Senate seats and 69 seats in the House of Representatives.  Barry’s two terms were highlighted by “a devastation up and down the party across the nation.”   A legacy is generally thought to be a gift handed down from one generation to the next.  For the Democrat Party, Barry’s legacy is anything but.  And if you chose, at the time of Barry’s first election, to believe James Carville, the legacy of Barry “Almighty” was going to be 40 years of solid Democrat rule.  Oops!

And Barry also failed to mention his year-end press conference which was short on questions, long on answers, where Barry spoke about his response to the Russian hacking of Democrat National Committee emails during the election.  He said that when he met with Vlad Putin in China in September, he told him to “cut it out” in terms of the hacking.  Sorry, Barry, the world isn’t afraid of you and your empty threats.  Eight years of leading from behind has left America’s standing in the world diminished, its moral authority compromised and its foreign policy in tatters.

Barry left unsaid how the wars he inherited are still going on. And how the Taliban has made a comeback in Afghanistan and Syria is in shambles.  And how Secretary of State John Kerry-Heinz has been so ineffective that no one even bothered to invite him to the Syrian cease-fire negotiations among Russia, Turkey and Iran.  And Barry also said nothing about how he broke with 36 years of U.S. policy by abandoning its ally Israel and allowing the passage of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2234, declaring Israeli settlements, including the Western Wall and Temple Mount in East Jerusalem, illegal.

And Barry made no mention that while he may have broken racial barriers when he became the first African-American president of the U.S., his election has done nothing to improve race relations.  In fact, a majority of Americans (54%) say that race relations deteriorated under Barry “Almighty”.  And Barry didn’t mention how he has continually promoted the idea of a police force biased against blacks, or how he vehemently denied FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for the surge in violent crime and homicide rates last year were a result of the “Ferguson effect.”

Also Barry didn’t include in his letter to the American people how his hometown of Chicago witnessed 762 homicides last year, the most in two decades, and up from the 459 that occurred in 2009.  Barry’s protests to the contrary notwithstanding, the reason is the Ferguson effect, according to the Manhattan Institute’s Heather MacDonald. What’s more, statistics show that police are now three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than white ones.  Barry is not entitled to his own facts. If he doesn’t want to talk to those on the front line, he should listen to those who do.

And finally I think it’s worth mentioning how it was that Barry once again failed to mention that which must never be named, aka Radical Islamic terrorism.  Barry has spent eight years deftly avoiding using those three words to call an act what it is. He has intellectualized his position by claiming the phrase “equates Islam with terrorism,” which is counterproductive to U.S. counterterrorism efforts.  Instead, Barry prefers terms such as “workplace violence,” even if the terrorists in question pay homage to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State.

I’m quite sure that everyone remembers the gilded setting, complete with Greek columns that served as the backdrop for Barry’s acceptance speech at the 2008 Democrat convention in Denver.  However, don’t expect the same pomp and circumstance at next week’s farewell address.  Because unlike in 2008, when Barry was all about “Hope and Change”, the 2016 audience will have results in hand to determine if the hope was misplaced and the change worthwhile.

And I noticed how our Liar-in-Chief chose not to list those countries where we are “more respected”.  Maybe he means “Cuba”, but he fails to recognize that they’re laughing at him, just like the “back of ISIS” has been broken.  He either lives in some sort of alternate universe or some weird fantasy world, or is nothing more than an inveterate liar.  Personally, I choose the latter, because I think that he knows full well just how much of a “failure” he truly has been but just can’t bring himself to admit it.  But the good thing is that in two weeks he’ll be gone.  Thank you Jesus!



As you may, or may not recall, Barry “Almighty” began his journey to the White House with onlookers fainting upon the mere sound of his voice.  And it would appear that as that journey comes to an end, it was his 2016 press conference swan song, last Friday, that witnessed a reporter swoon.  So it is then that the Fourth Estate remains about the only group that still gets the vapors whenever Barry speaks. The rest of us fall asleep. Listeners bore quickly to the sound of a voice that so excites the speaker.

That, in a nutshell, serves as the reason people fall unconscious to the president’s voice.  Eight years of talking has that effect on an audience, sure. So does saying something one knows to be a lie, over and over again, on such a large stage.  Barry uttered only lies and half-truths on Friday.  Mostly he spoke about his favorite subject, that being of course, himself.  Because you must admit that there is absolutely nothing that Barry enjoys talking about more than, himself.

Barry noted, “As I was preparing to take office, the unemployment rate was on its way to 10 percent.”  And he added, “Today it is at 4.6 percent, the lowest in nearly a decade.”  He went on to tell those members of the state-controlled media who still, after all this time, hang on his every word, “When I came into office, 44 million people were uninsured.”  And he bragged, “Today we have covered more than 20 million of them.”  But of course he neglected to mention at what cost.

And of course Barry went on to very confidently declare, “Over the past eight years no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed an attack on our homeland that was directed from overseas.”  Take it from Barry, if there is one thing certain in this world it’s that Barack Hussein Obama will most certainly go down as being one of this nation’s all-time great presidents.  And those of our state-controlled media most certain have, and continue to, take Barry’s word for that.

It was during this final press conference that these intrepid reporters asked questions (mostly about Vlad Putin and Donald Trump) but they didn’t question.  They didn’t question what it means to “cover” people who face a $6,000 deductible?  Or does the caveat “directed from overseas” really matter much to the families of victims in San Bernardino, Boston, and Orlando?  Such inquiries never crossed the lips of those whose job is to act on the part of the people and to hold our politicians to account.

Not that they had much time to.  Because while Barry’s party may have restricted the filibuster in the Senate, no such limitations were place on our Liar-in-Chief.  America’s 44th president’s time in office was little more than an eight-year, one-way gabfest.  And it’s in looking back over the course of his presidency that one would observe that he only ever takes responsibility for those things he views as having gone right, but never for what the rest of us view as having gone horribly wrong.

And where Barry’s words once evoked all the excitement of a preacher, well, now they remind one more of the pedantry of a professor.  His speeches which once stimulated, now seem to be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to those nights when one may have difficulty falling asleep. Despite surrounding himself with all manner of stars and celebrities, the national monologist continues to violate the first rule of show business: leave the audience wanting more, not less.

So it was then at the last official press conference of his presidency, Barry proceeded to give himself a pretty enthusiastic pat on the back.  Barry opened the press conference by touting his economic and policy achievements before heaping praise on his own shoulders.  Barry said, “Almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago.”  Most Americans, I’m sure, were more than a little confused by Barry’s assessment.

Barry went on to say, “In other words, by so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than when we started.”  He said, “It is a situation that I am proud to leave for my successor, and it’s thanks to the American people.”  He added, “The hard work you put in and the sacrifices that you made for your families and communities, the businesses that you started or invested in and the way you looked out for one another, and I cannot be prouder to be your president.”

Barry epitomizes narcissism. Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others.  Narcissism is a prerequisite for Liberalism. Feeling good about themselves motivates everything they do.  That’s why they are so corrupt and why so many ultimately end up as absolute evil.  And yet they are able to go to bed each night thinking they are a good person doing good.

This is why Barry, and liberals in general, are falling to the floor in a shrieking temper tantrum because they lost an election.  And it’s also why it is that they are manufacturing outlandish conspiracy theories as cover for the fact that middle-America has rejected their middle class killing policies. Their perceived need of a Hitlery totalitarian dictatorship wasn’t gratified so they’re going to take out their savagery on anyone who happens along.  Pretty pathetic.
