Obama Makes Trump/Hitler Comparison,
Credits Himself for Strong Economy

Truth Revolt, by Trey Sanchez

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 12:32:33 PM

On Tuesday night, Barack Obama did the inevitable when speaking at the Economic Club of Chicago: he dropped the worn out “Trump is Hitler” comparison for everyone’s enjoyment. Obama spent a lot of time talking about being a “citizen of the world,” according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The former president boasted about saving “a million lives” thanks to his efforts in the Ebola outbreak in Africa. (Snip) The danger is "grow(ing) complacent," Obama said. "We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly." That´s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy

It´s really rich that the tyrannical Obama makes a Trump/Hitler comparison. He is such a vile, evil man. He saved millions of lives because of his efforts with Ebola outbreak?? Good. Grief. His arrogance has no bounds. It´s even more sickening that he blathers on about a ´garden of democracy´ when he did everything he could to destroy this country. There aren´t enough words in the English language to quantify how much I despise him.

Hitler had a phone and a pen that he really liked to use, too. That doesn´t really describe Trump.

FTA: "That´s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate, Obama noted. "Sixty million people died. . . .So, you´ve got to pay attention. And vote."

Aside from the inappropriate, disgusting behavior of a former president, it´s really rich that he mentioned the Weimar Republic when his policies caused such disastrous economic conditions that so negatively impacted this country.

Quite frankly I agree with Obama, our complacency enabled by the tremendous success of our constitutional republic has led us to ignore its tending. There is no greater example of that than the election of a president to two terms who openly declared he had no intent of following the constitution and backed that up with his actions.

From what I have been reading this past week, it is looking more and more like Obama could be one of the so-called *former official close to the president* sources the media has been using this past year to foment division and trouble in the WH and cabinet.

I hope one of the best results of the release of the report after 11 months of investigation of the FBI is that Obama not only shuts up, but maybe leaves the country for one of those tropical no extradition treaty countries he loves.

The American People have already judged BO a failure even though they didn´t want him to be. He let us down. He promised so much and delivered less than nothing while stoking pretend grievances among the American people to satisfy his own political goals and agenda.

Luckily he took short cuts to accomplish most of his damage and it has been possible to reverse much of what he did. Other things, like BOCare are so poorly designed and implemented that they are falling over under their own weight.

BO can babble on and it will; do him no good. His power is gone and by the end of Trump´s first term it will be clear how incompetent BO was. The Left cannot stand to face that because he was the culmination of their goals. He was going to do EVERYTHING!

Instead they lie in ruin. Their political power gone, reduced to moaning and whining. That is the one thing that BO really did accomplish. Thanks BO!

On this Day of Infamy it is fitting that the greatest fraud, the greatest con in history is reading off a teleprompter. The PERFECT representative of the Deep State, a truly evil group of traitors.

IF the United States of America can expose the depth of corruption and crime that the Deep State has done to all of the rest of us for decades, maybe there is a chance creeps like BHO will be brought to justice. The armor for his kind, the enabler for him, is most of the Education/Entertainment/Media. Without that he would never had made it out of Chicago. So work and pray that someday the facade will fall down.

First...the Marxists charged the Banks with "Red-Lining" that is refusing to loan to people who lived in areas where housing values were not appreciating or where low- income people could not service the mortgage debt. So....bankers, under political pressure from the Left, started making loans to people whom they suspected might not be able to service the debt. When the social engineering experiment got ugly....the bankers started to ´Bundle´ the mortgages and sell them on international markets....the whole scam eventually blew up as all Marxist scams do and the Bankers were charged with ´Predatory Lending´ for having complied with the Leftist, vote buying scam.

Oh...´those evil bankers´ screamed the Left and we got Dodd-Frank and even more Marxist abuse of the Free Market all of which was blamed on Conservatives who faught it tooth and nail the whole way.

Now Obola wants to take credit for our economy struggling to right itself in spite of his Marxist abuse and stupidity.

The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Monday demanded U.S nuclear regulators explain how a Russian-owned mining company was able to ship American uranium outside the country using a third-party export license. Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said new information brought to light in a series of stories published by The Hill about Uranium One’s exports to Canada, Europe and Asia conflicts with assurances he was given years ago by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that the mining firm’s uranium would stay inside the United States. “Recent reporting by The Hill uncovered that Uranium One was able to export

Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held. The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier. Senior executives summoned to testify before Congress in October invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and the firm is resisting a congressional subpoena for bank records that would reveal who

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it was refusing to take up a case that could have expanded the prohibition on discrimination to include sexual orientation, declining to hear a case brought by a woman against her employer and leaving a legal jumble in place. Federal law doesn’t mention sexual orientation, but some appeals courts have read that language into the law anyway, while others have refused to take that step. That’s created a split where discriminating against gay or lesbian workers is illegal under federal law in some states, but not in others. The justices, without comment, declined to

Sanders disputed the notion that mistakes made by news outlets were “honest mistakes” during a heated exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta.

CNN has quietly walked back more of their “bombshell” reporting on the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, and this time it’s a story relating to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ security clearance forms. In May, CNN reported that Sessions had failed to disclose meetings he had with the Russian ambassador when he was a senator. Justice Department officials told CNN that Sessions had not listed those meetings on a security clearance form, even though the form says to list “any contact” with the “foreign government” or its “representatives” in the past seven years. CNN framed the non-disclosures as more evidence of collusion between Russia and

Trump may get tax cut bill with more
generous credits for illegal immigrants

President Trump has been willing to accept almost anything to close the deal on his giant tax cut bill before Christmas, including staying mum about a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to pocket the more generous child tax credit included in the package. Illegal immigrants have been collecting the payoff from the “refundable” tax credit for years because of an IRS interpretation of how the rule was drafted. The Republican-controlled Congress this fall had a chance to correct that in the tax code overhaul that in the Senate version doubled the child tax credit to $2,000 and expanded eligibility.

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?
