    ".@FareedZakaria: Trump’s speech on Islam “was frankly the kind of speech Obama could have given" https://t.co/mxgAJY6Qbx " — Brooke Baldwin (@BrookeBCNN) May 22, 2017 CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Monday praised President Trump's weekend speech in Saudi Arabia, saying former President Obama could have given it. “It was nuanced. It was frankly the kind of speech that President Obama could have given. It had the kind of empathy and nuance that people look for," Zakaria said Monday on CNN, praising "both the symbolism and ... the substance." “Because ultimately what you’re trying to do is convince these Muslim countries to in...

    Away from the commotion of the ongoing attempt at a coup d'etat of the current President by being conducted by democrats and the left wing media, Donald Trump is getting things don and acting as the real leader of the free world. Upon his arrival in the Middle East, Trump shook hands with Saudi King Salman rather than bow and scrape as did barack obama. Despite the prediction that Trump would not be welcome in the Arab world, Trump received the rock star treatment. The great thing is that this is no barack obama apology for the US tour. This is...

    Cussing their way back into power, two middle fingers at a time.: At the increasingly profane Democrat Party’s annual convention in California, the 84 year-old outgoing state party chairman, some guy named John Burton, closed out the proceedings by sticking both middle fingers in the air and leading gleeful party members in the chant of “F*** Donald Trump! F*** Donald Trump!” The fake national news media largely ignored the incident. Try to imagine the fake media outrage that would ensue if a state GOP party chair led a GOP convention in a chant of “F*** Barack Obama!”, or “F*** Hillary...

    ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. — Looking back, the sign-stealers were a portent of sorts, an early indication that 2016 would be like no election in recent memory. While it is not uncommon for people to steal campaign signs from other people's lawns in the heat of an election campaign, normally people confiscate the signs of candidates they oppose. But something quite different happened in Robeson County, N.C., as Donald Trump started to gain traction in the presidential campaign. As Bo Biggs, treasurer of the county's Republican Party, tells it, "People were stealing [Trump] signs to put them in their own yard."...

On Friday, the former president and his wife Michelle arrived in Tuscany aboard a private plane, escorted to a military base by six fighter jets, then whisked away in 13-car motorcade to a private villa where the stay costs regular folk $15,000 per night.

    It used to be a lot simpler. As E.C. Bentley deftly summarized it in 1905: “Geography is about maps But Biography is about chaps.” But that was then, and now Biography is also about maps. For example, have you ever thought it would be way cooler to have been born in colonial Kenya? Whoa, that sounds like crazy Birther talk; don’t go there! But Breitbart News did, and it turns out that the earliest recorded example of Birtherism is from the president’s own literary agent, way back in 1991, in the official bio of her exciting new author: Yes “Barack...

    Improper payments by the federal government are costing taxpayers billions of dollars a year — more than a trillion, if you add them up over the years, Comptroller General Gene Dodaro told the Senate Budget Committee on Wednesday. “These are payments that should not have been made or were made in the wrong amounts,” Dodaro said in his opening statement. The problem is growing, he said, from $125 billion in 2014; to $137 billion in 2015; to the most recent estimate of $144 billion in 2016. “This includes estimates for 112 programs at 22 federal agencies, so it is a...
  • Video: The Difference Between How The Saudis Greeted Obama vs Trump

    The Saudis treated President Trump like royalty, with red carpets, lavish meals and American flags flying everywhere. They repeatedly used the word “Historic” to describe his visit. The greeting was in stark contrast to Obama. Obama was seen as a Globalist-endorsing effeminate shill of the Shia Muslim-Brotherhood.

    New York Post ^ | February 11, 2017 | Paul Sperry
    When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only...

    This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace. They represent evil and war.

    Have you noticed that free checking accounts are now nearly nonexistent, and locally owned stores are increasing the $5 minimum charge on debit cards? These are not the result of some financial conspiracy. They are a direct result of Dodd-Frank regulations. After the financial crash of 2008, President Barack Obama decided to increase the role of the federal government in the economy and impose massive new regulations on banks. As one might assume, this hasn’t worked out so well. Included in the over 3,500-page Dodd-Frank bill are rules restricting access to credit for investors and homebuyers, raising lending costs for...

In 2009, then President Obama made a point to bow to Saudi King Salman. However, as President Trump shook hands with the Saudi King after arriving Saturday morning, he broke from Obama by not bowing:

    The deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Defense Department by an enemy agent in recent history was pulled off by a spy working for the terror-sponsoring, drug-smuggling Castro regime. The spy’s name is Ana Belen Montes, known as "Castro’s Queen Jewel" in the intelligence community. In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and today she serves a 25-year sentence in Federal prison. Only a plea bargain spared her from sizzling in the electric chair like the Rosenbergs.Promptly upon Montes’ conviction a Cuban spy named Gustavo Machin, who worked under diplomatic cover in...

    A measure to make former President Barack Obama's birthday an honorary state holiday now heads to the governor's desk after clearing the Illinois House unanimously Friday. The bill would make Aug. 4. Barack Obama Day in Illinois, but state government and businesses would remain open. "Mr. Obama served this country well, and I really believe personally, that we should give folks their flowers while they're still alive," bill sponsor state Rep. Marcus C. Evans Jr., D-Chicago, said on the House floor. "So honoring our president while he can experience it and feel it and and show the love, I...

    Conservative blogger Jim Geraghty, a contributor for National Review and noted #nevertrumper, explained the complete lack of evidence in just two very straightforward paragraphs. Are any Democratic lawmakers starting to fear that they’re not going to find that evidence? The intelligence community is presumably always watching the Russian government as closely as they can. The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign. If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump...

ABC couldn’t wait to point out that although Michelle Obama didn’t wear head covering when visiting Saudia Arabia in 2015, First lady Melania Trump stepped off Air Force One at King Khalid International Airport Saturday morning without a head scarf -- following the example of her predecessor, Michelle Obama -- and potentially creating a stir in this conservative Islamic country. – ABC she “intended to make a statement in a country...
