  • WaPo: Obama Knew Of Russian Meddling; Did He Drop The Ball?

    The Washington Post had a lengthy piece about the Obama White HouseÂ’s behind-the-scenes activities to combat the Russian meddling during the 2016 election. First, they knew about the meddling far in advance. Second, they seem to have fallen into the same decision-making process they exhibited over Syria: paralysis by analysis. There was always the fear that it would look too political. That actually mentioning the meddling might force Russian President Vladimir Putin to do something more damaging in response. Putin reportedly ordered an interference campaign, according to a highly confident assessment by our intelligence community (via WaPo):Early last August, an...

    Frustrated Dems say Obama botched Russia response By Katie Bo Williams - 06/23/17 05:48 PM EDT The Obama administration is under fresh scrutiny for its response to Russian meddling in the election after new details emerged this week about how the White House weighed its actions against the 2016 political environment. Then-President Obama was too cautious in the months leading up to the election, frustrated Democratic lawmakers and strategists say. “It was inadequate. I think they could have done a better job informing the American people of the extent of the attack,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), a member of...

    Aaaannnnnnd....another of Obama's minions have appeared: This kind of leak is criminal. Exposing national security to blame Trump for Obama's failure to act. Amazing. streiff: The Washington Post has a detailed and self-serving account today from several Obama administration officials on the actions taken to stop alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. The overall picture it paints is pretty much what we have come to believe about the Obama administration. It was wildly incompetent because it was staffed by wildly incompetent people. Politics and moving the progressive agenda forward trumped, so to speak, national security. And its capacity for...

    arly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

    Former President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail this fall in an effort to stem a series of Democratic electoral losses, according to a report in the HuffPost. Obama is expected to campaign for Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, a rare decision for a former president. The decision shows that Democrats appear helpless without Obama, hoping that he will help them recapture the magic.

    President Trump is making school lunches great again, or at least a lot better than they were during the Obama administration. Food service directors are applauding recent changes to federal school food regulations imposed on schools as part of Michelle Obama’s campaign against childhood obesity. […] Regulations imposed through the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act put strict limitations on calories, fat, sugar, salt, and other elements of foods served in public schools that participate in the national school lunch or breakfast programs. …

    What a difference a year makes. Last summer, the Obama administration not only supported a text at the U.N. Human Rights Council that included a call for access to “safe abortion where such services are permitted by national law” but also co-sponsored it, despite not then being a member of the Geneva-based body. On Thursday, when this year’s version of the resolution came around for a vote again, the Trump administration rejected the abortion reference, reminding the HRC that key international documents drawn up in the 1990s did not create a “right” to abortion. The broader resolution, dealing with eliminating...

    The failing, defeated Democrat Party needs Obama & Clinton out campaigning, like they need a hole in the head. Obama has declared he will be actively campaigning for the Democrat candidate running for Governor of Virginia. I am overjoyed, that Obama joins the other Democrat nutcases, Clinton, Pelosi & Schumer, etc., in their active quest to destroy the entire Democrat Party politically. It should be interesting to witness the impact that Obama (who singlehandedly destroyed the Democrat Party over his eight years as POTUS, on the rank and file Democrats in Virginia. The governor race in Virginia was certainly almost...

    The text of the Senate’s 142-page Obamacare repeal bill had been public for just a few hours Thursday when the nation’s most influential private citizen weighed in — Barack Obama. The plan is “not a health care bill,” Obama declared in a 939-word message to his nearly 53 million followers on Facebook. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.” The 44th president did not mention his successor, Donald Trump, but his scathing criticism and urgent tone — imploring his supporters to speak out against the “fundamental meanness at the core...

    Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators. Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long...

    Barack Obama could soon hear his name being uttered as part of Angelenos’ driving directions, with a Los Angeles city councilman proposing to name a street after him. Obama Boulevard could prove a relatively more innocuous role for the 44th president’s name than “Obamajam” — the oft-used term to refer to the anticipated congestion that accompanied his frequent fundraising trips to the Los Angeles area. City Council President Herb Wesson wants to rename a 3.4-mile segment of Rodeo Road, between Jefferson Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, after Obama because it would be a fitting addition to what is known in his...

    Both Melania Trump and Michelle Obama had modest upbringings: one is White, born in Yugoslavia. The other is Black, raised on the South Side of Chicago. When Melania married Donald Trump in 2005, he was already a real estate magnate. When Michelle married Barack Obama in 1992, he had just become a law school professor. Both Trump and Obama went on to become president of the United States, and both women who hail from different walks of life, found themselves thrust in the job of first lady. So who has worn the FLOTUS title best? I submit, Michelle, 53. Not...

    President Barack Obama says the Senate's GOP-written health care bill will cause millions of families to lose health care coverage. Obama called Senate Republicans' health care bill a "massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America." He also says it "hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else." The former president says amending the GOP-written bill "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation." "Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get...

    Records relating to former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s surveillance of Americans, including Trump campaign and transition officials, have been sealed at the Barack Obama Presidential Library. That means they are off-limits from the public for the next five years under the Presidential Records Act. In April, reports emerged that Rice had requested to “unmask” — or unveil the hidden names of — Trump transition officials who were caught up in surveillance of foreign targets. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton explained on "Fox & Friends" that they received (a letter) informing them that their request for materials related to Rice's...
