Barack Obama dissed President Trump’s coronavirus leadership, and ripped the Georgia men who shot Ahmaud Arbery, during a “virtual commencement” Saturday for the graduates of historically black colleges.“More than anything else, this pandemic has fully finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” the former president said in an online address aimed at the 27,000 graduating seniors of 78 schools.“A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” he added.It was a muted insult compared to the harsh language Obama used in a leaked phone call last

What irks me is how the Bush family has taken this petty little man and his America-hating wife to be their friends, along with the influence-peddling Clintons. Trump may be rough around the edges, but he loves his country and he's no doormat. That's what I love about him. I lost all respect for GWB when he let the Dems libel and slander him for 8 years.

Obama’s comments about Presidential leadership during the Chinese COVID-19 pandemic were extremely unhelpful for the country, and were obviously designed to deflect from all the “Chicago Way” political corruption that he and his crew engaged in while he was President. As far as the two men in Georgia who it appears murdered the jogger, the criminal justice system will take care of those two morons. The best thing for the country and especially ongoing “race relations” is that Obama stays hidden in his basement.

As the focus shifts ever so slowly on former President Barack Obama and his role in the shady effort to target President Donald Trump’s campaign and his administration once elected, Obama’s voice is suddenly being heard a little more often.A voice that not only endeavors to criticize his successor, but also moves to inflame racial tensions in the country — as if Obama didn’t do enough of that during his eight years in office.“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” the former president said Saturday, of the Trump administration’s handling

(Video) “I know these are difficult times for all of us,” Biden said, “And for any of you who might’ve lost loved ones to this pandemic.”After saying “we’re going to get through this,” he continued, “We’re going to need the passion and ingenuity and the skill that all of you have to offer to help rebuild and transform this country.

President Donald Trump shared a motivational video meme Saturday that depicted him as a character from the 1990s hit science fiction film “Independence Day.”During the film, actor Bill Pullman’s character, President Thomas J. Whitmore, delivered a motivational July 4th speech as the inhabitants of Earth prepared for their final battle with an alien species who’d invaded the planet and sought to eliminate humanity.The video meme featured Whitmore delivering that very speech. Except the real-life president’s face was imposed over his face, while the faces of Trump’s top officials and family members, as well as some GOP congressmen and conservative TV commentators, were imposed over the faces of the audience.

The further left you go in your politics, the more in favor you are of central government control rather than the sharing of power that is enumerated in federalism. The same, by the way, holds true for the right -- the further right you go, the more in favor are you of central government control. Whether one calls it fascism or totalitarianism, right and left meet at their extremes. Both political philosophies taken to their furthest extreme advocate complete governmental control of your life, work, and movements. Historically, American presidents have occupied a mostly sensible position either slightly to the right or to the left of center during their tenures.

President Donald Trump is being criticized by his opponents after firing State Department Inspector General Steve Linick on Friday night. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) called it a “threat to accountable democracy.” However, President Barack Obama did not nominate an inspector general for the State Department during his entire first term.In fact, the post was vacant for nearly four years. The last inspector general under President George W. Bush, Howard J. Krongard, resigned in December 2007. The position was vacant for nearly six years until the Senate confirmed Linick in September 2013. There was little public outcry or media criticism about the vacancy at the time.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is happy to play rank politics with the federal coronavirus response. Exhibit A is the absurd $3 trillion “relief” bill she’s set for floor vote on Friday. It’s the first emergency bill written by one party with zero input from the other. Some Dems say it’s just an “opening bid,” but why waste time crafting 1,800 pages of legislation full of poison pills for the opposition? It seems Pelosi thinks virtue-signaling to her base is worth the trouble. The bill is packed with junk that has nothing to do with the pandemic or the economic chaos the response to it has created.
