    Former President Obama called on the Senate not to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, urging Republicans to live up to the standard they set in 2016 when they refused to give a hearing to his final nominee, Merrick Garland.

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that if she steps down now, President Obama would not be able to appoint an acceptable replacement. Ginsburg, who reiterated that she has no imminent plans to retire, told Elle that it would be next to impossible for the Senate to confirm a new justice to the court who she would approve of. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court," she...
  • Barack Obama’s 2016 Tweets Demanding the Senate “Fill the Supreme Court Vacancy” Come Back to Haunt Him

    Obama cited his failed 2016 nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to back up his support for Ginsburg’s reported dying “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg reportedly said. However Obama’s 2016 tweets instructing the Senate to confirm a new SCOTUS following the death of conservative justice Antonin Scalia is coming back to haunt him. On August 30, 2016, Barack Obama demanded the GOP Senate fill the Supreme Court vacancy with Merrick Garland.

    Former President Barack Obama issued a statement late Friday night on the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The statement was posted to the online site Medium. In the statement, Obama demanded the Republican controlled Senate not vote on any replacement for Ginsburg until a new president is sworn following the November presidential election. Obama cited his failed 2016 nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to back up his support for Ginsburg’s reported dying “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president (“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new...

    Another day, another corrupt Obama judge. Judge Stanley Bastian in Eastern Washington’s US District Court, an Obama appointee on Thursday issued a nationwide injunction blocking Postmaster General Louis DeJoy from making operational changes to the United States Postal Service ahead of the general election. The post office is an establishment in the executive branch and controlled by presidential appointees, but this Obama judge believes he runs the post office and controls the executive branch. The Democrat-media complex exploded last month and accused President Trump of “destroying” the US Postal Service after the President’s newly appointed Postmaster General made structural changes.

    he George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened seven years ago and anchors the southeastern corner of campus at Southern Methodist University, where I teach history. In late November 2016, I took a tour of the facility with five college friends who were visiting from the East Coast. The recent presidential election was much on our minds as we wandered through the building, contemplating various artifacts from Bush’s two terms in office. Although we were hardly fans of his presidency, one of my pals—fearful, like everyone in our group, of a Trump administration—got misty-eyed when reflecting upon Bush’s obvious...

    It’s Throwback Thursday, and what better day to look back on some of Joey’s past Bidenisms. This gem has always been a personal favorite, it’s from a Boston Marathon bombing memorial in 2014 when Old Joe told the people of Boston that it “ was worth it.” “To those quote ‘survivors,’ My God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth… It was worth it. I mean this sincerely…” Of course Biden apologists enthusiasts claim this was taken out of context, which it wasn’t. Unless you consider the way Joey normally speaks to be “out of context” which...

    Two disastrous actions taken by Barack Hussein Obama during his presidency have delivered extensive damage to the US military, just as planned. The first was the systematic purging of nearly 200 senior officers over five years and their subsequent replacement by Democrat loyalists, as reported here. His second ignominious action taken was the 2011 Executive Order 13583 directing “government-wide diversity and inclusion training,” which, by 2020, included the implementation of Marxist critical race theory training in all federal agencies including the US military services. The results from these actions are now crystal clear. Retired Obama-era flag and general officers (FOGO),...

    HYDE PARK - As a polarizing review of the planned Obama Presidential Center’s impact on Jackson Park nears the end of its third year, officials say an agreement to address any negative effects the center would have on the park is still a long way off. The so-called Section 106 review process, ongoing since 2017, has found the Obama Center’s construction would affect the historic nature of Jackson Park and the Midway Plaisance. To address these concerns, a draft agreement released July 9 calls for: - The city to file new National Register of Historic Places nominations for Jackson Park...

    A nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is far from a guarantee that Donald Trump will become the laureate in Norway, a country generally chilly to his cause. A member of parliament for the Norwegian populist right-wing, anti-immigration Progress Party, said on Wednesday he had nominated Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The lawmaker, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, cited Trump’s role in brokering an agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Together with another politician, Tybring-Gjedde has already nominated Trump for the Nobel in 2018 for his rapprochement with North Korea. That reconciliation is now in limbo....

The details of the film are so gross .. ... what do we call the people who defend, promote, or even profit from this garbage? Which brings us to Barack and Michelle Obama. In 2018, they signed a huge, multi-million-dollar production deal with Netflix. Their pal and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice sits on the Netflix board. So far, they are silent on the "Cuties" controversy. And, make no mistake, the controversy has been with us for weeks,...

    This week, President Trump received two nominations for a Nobel Prize. First, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, nominated him for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. "I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees have," Tybring-Gjedde said. "I expect other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE. This agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity." Second, Magnus Jacobson a...

    Neither Barack and Michelle Obama nor their former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have weighed in on the firestorm surrounding Cuties, a French coming-of-age drama that is the subject of widespread criticism for its blatant sexualization of pre-pubescent children. Both the Obamas and Rice are closely connected to the company, with the former president and first lady currently in the middle of a “multi-year agreement” signed back in May 2018 to help produce films and series for the platform. Rice, meanwhile, was appointed to the Netflix board that same year. Cuties, which was released on Netflix Wednesday, is a French...
