Barack Obama moved his way up into the top 10 of C-SPAN’s presidential leadership survey for the first time this year, while Donald Trump clocked in at 41st on the list, months after the end of his term in office.C-SPAN released the rankings from its Historians Survey of Presidential Leadership, which is taken after each presidential transition, on Wednesday. This survey marks Trump's first appearance on the list, on which the one-term president placed higher than only three other presidents: Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson and the perpetually last-ranked James Buchanan.

Saw this the other day. When I saw that Sparklefarts was in the top 10, I knew this was a survey done among the communist woketards of our society. I spit upon this survey, and upon C-SPAN, which was once studiously neutral but went hard left a long time ago.

The best economy several generations have seen. Lowest unemployment for all minorities. Rebuild the armed forces. Beginning of peace in the middle-east. Secure southern border. Restore balance of trade. Produce COVID vaccine in record time. On and on. His deliberately low ranking is indicative of a lot of things that wrong today. Over 80 million citizens that legally voted for him - and will gladly do so again know differently.

When I saw that JFK was ranked at #8, when the only noteworthy thing that he accomplished was intercepting the flight of a couple of bullets, I knew that the survey was a farce. The rankings were based on the opinions of "historians", who as a group are not noted for any conservative leanings.

This survey is wrong. Obama should be ranked 5th. Washington, Lincoln, Reagan and Trump are tied for 1st. 14 presidents are tied for 2nd. 25 presidents are tied for 3rd. Carter is 4th. Obama is 5th. 46 * is 6th.

Any Historian with integrity would refuse to answer when asked to include recent presidents. Historians need distance/time from events to properly evaluate them. Harry Truman was despised as President, as was Lincoln. It took decades to properly evaluate them Now look at them and their ranking.

Obama in top 10? Really? Did they forget the debacle in Libya? Or numerous attacks in the US by Muslim terrorists or wannabe terrorists? Or the rise of ISIS and gruesome beheadings and other murders after an ill-time pullout from Iraq? Or nearly 8 years of a stagnant economy, with high unemployment and volatile markets? Or the red line everyone crossed in Syria? Or the scandal over his Secretary of State's emails? Or our President bowing to kings and dictators? Or his apology tour? Obama's presidency was a disaster.

National Geographic posted an unhinged and unscientific tweet on Independence Day saying fireworks are racist because they affect communities of color.What complete BS. This is what can be described as “scientism” and NOT “science.” There is absolutely no proof to support this theory. In fact, in cities like St. Louis and New York City, minorities shoot off guns on New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July. This is much more dangerous than sniffing fireworks smoke for a night.

The National Education Association, the largest teacher’s union in the United States, has approved a plan for Critical Race Theory to be implemented in all classrooms nationwide.The radical agenda was adopted after the 100th NEA Assembly, which was held at the Washington Convention Center and was livestreamed as a virtual meeting. Both President Joe Biden and Jill Biden spoke to the educators in a reportedly “mostly empty” hall in Washington. It was symbolic of the lack of public support for the hard left’s racially divisive agenda.Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and activist against Critical Race Theory, reported

Apparently, one patron started it, and many other onlookers joined in.The TikTok video of the pro-America singalong, which was met with a huge round of applause at the end, has since gone viral on several online platforms. A TikTok user with the handle raised..right labeled the clip with this wording: “Very patriotic scene in Haslet, Tx Walmart 7/3/21 someone started singing the national anthem and people joined in.”

While American troops were leaving their main military base in Afghanistan on Friday, China was already preparing to enter the war-torn country to fill the vacuum left by U.S. and NATO troops. Authorities in Kabul are considering extending a $62 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as part of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).First launched in 2013 by Chinese president Xi Jinping, and written into the Chinese constitution in 2017, it is billed by Beijing officials as a global infrastructure development fund which aims to better connect China to the rest of the world.The Chinese entry comes amid threats from the Taliban to NATO to get out of Afghanistan

Those of Joe Biden’s public behaviors that align with classic dementia symptoms are escalating. In the past few days, he strongly exhibited two symptoms: A type of belligerence that’s a cover-up for confusion and memory loss and a paranoid fear of those in charge of him. I used to spend a lot of time in the company of doctors. What always fascinated me were the tales they told of dealing with patients with early-stage dementia. The most interesting point they made was that elderly people, so as not to lose face or admit their own fears, are superb at deflecting the questions aimed at assessing their cognitive skills and memory.
