    My black brother called me from Baltimore feeling frustrated and alone. He is surrounded by blacks, including his own household, who believe everything they are told by fake news media. No amount of data, logic, or truth seems to penetrate their wall of brain-dead loyalty to the Democrat party and worship of Obama. My brother said that even at his all-black church every sermon includes digs against Trump. In his black circles, spouting the truth about Obama is not tolerated. They angrily reject data confirming that blacks moved backwards culturally and economically after eight years of Obama. As a strong...

    Former President Barack Obama and President Trump have not spoken once since the inauguration in January, Mr. Trump confirmed to The Washington Times, adding it’s “too bad” they haven’t been in communication, but he is not surprised given their history. Mr. Trump also brushed aside Mr. Obama’s recent public attacks on him, acknowledging his own barbs aimed at the man whose legacy he upended with his stunning election victory in November. “I wouldn’t say I’ve been exactly great to him either,” Mr. Trump said by way of explanation. {..snip..}

    The Oscar-winning actor has been tight-lipped about the luxurious French Polynesian yacht cruise he went on with TV host Winfrey, rock legend Bruce Springsteen and the former U.S. President and First Lady, earlier this month (Apr17). But during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday (28Apr17), Hanks divulged that the trip was better than most people could ever imagine. "That made the news, it was really interesting. Both Oprah and I were really p***ed off," the 60-year-old joked. "Look, imagine what it could've been like it, triple it. It was off the scale, fantastic." Winfrey previously...

    Good news! Michelle Obama’s inedible school lunches are about to be a thing of the past. Michelle Obama admittedly loves enchiladas and french fries (and her figure showed it), but she loved to lecture everyone else’s children about eating vegetables. This is what you get with an elite, overreaching government, folks; they tell your children what to eat. Via The Daily Caller: Perdue and Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts will release a new interim rule “designed to provide flexibility for school meals” at an elementary school in Leesburg, Va. Monday, a USDA press release stated. The exact nature of the...

    MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday attributed President Donald Trump's successes to former President Barack Obama. Ruhle's comments were prompted by a discussion of the president's first 100 days in office, and Trump's repeated claims that he had inherited "a mess" from the previous administration. "First how frustrating is this for you, Josh?" Ruhle asked guest Josh Earnest, former White House press secretary. "President Obama was definitively handed a mess." Ruhle was likely alluding to, among other things, the tenuous state of the economy that Obama inherited when he took office in the wake of the 2008 Recession.

    Former President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama,”...

    So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact.

    Stung by critics who say that former President Barack Obama is showing inordinate greed by accepting fat payments from Wall Street for brief speeches, former Presidential Press Secretary Josh Earnest argued that "one of the President's greatest regrets during his time in office was his inability to establish a public program of reparations for America's historic mistreatment of racial minorities. Rather than just shrug off his disappointment he has decided to individually extract payments to compensate for those injustices." "We mustn't overlook the fact that the $400,000 per speech fees are being paid by white men to a black man,"...

It slips my mind who the second one is from, but I have an idea.That’s how much he made per year as president.And we’re toldthat liberals don’t care about money.We’re toldthat liberals do what they do for altruistic reasons.We’re toldthat liberals are compassionate.They care. They don’t care about getting rich, they aren’t rich, and they, of course, have negative comments and things to say about everybody who is rich. And yet when they...

    Washington (CNN)Sen. Bernie Sanders believes former President Barack Obama's plan to receive $400,000 for speaking at a September Wall Street health conference is "distasteful," The Vermont Independent reported Friday. Speaking with CNN's Suzanne Malveaux, Sanders labeled the transaction "not a good idea" and said he was "sorry President Obama made that choice." "I just think it does not look good," Sanders said. "I just think it is distasteful -- not a good idea that he did that."

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture is preparing to ease school lunch regulations created under former President Barack Obama. On Friday, the department announced its secretary, former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, will introduce an interim rule to provide "regulatory flexibility" for the National School Lunch Program at a Virginia elementary school on Monday, alongside Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. It's unclear how the regulations will be changed, or what effect it could have on school lunchrooms. The National School Lunch Program provides nutritionally balanced reduced-cost or free lunches to children. Former First Lady...

    Less than a year after a federal appellate court sided with the Obama administration to strike down North Carolina’s election integrity reforms, a state audit reveals that hundreds of votes were illegally cast by felons and non-citizens in just one election. Voter impersonation, double voting and irregularities in absentee ballots sent via mail also tainted the election, according to the investigation conducted by the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE). The probe analyzed records from the 2016 general election. State auditors found that about 500 ineligible people voted in 2016, more than 440 of them felons. Dozens of non-citizens...

    Former President Barack Obama received a $400,000 speaking fee for an appearance at an A&E Network event on Thursday. The news came amid controversy over Obama accepting a fee of the same size to appear at a Wall Street firm's conference. The "History Makers lunch" was hosted by A&E's history channel and attended by representatives of A&E advertisers, the New York Post reported. Those in attendance included Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Bob Sauerberg, Janice Min, and Penske Media CEO Jay Penske. Obama received a standing ovation on entering the room. The former president's appearance featured a 90 minute interview with...

He addressed it during the email segment of his show: John Knox: Arlington, VA: What about Obama having a Connecticut social security number. He never lived there. Bill O’Reilly: But his father lived in Connecticut for several years, John. Babies sometimes get numbers based on addresses provided by their parents. Why did O’Reilly mislead, and what is the lie?

    During the speech at the Pierre Hotel in New York City, Obama delivered a sly dig at his successor's prolific tweeting. Obama was asked how he coped with frustrating moments as president, and responded: 'By not having a Twitter account.' As President Obama came under fire for scheduling a $400,000 speaking gig at a Wall Street firm next fall, he pocketed the same amount for a speech Thursday night for A&E Networks.

    Schulz insists the former president remains true to his progressive values, and said “taking money from Wall Street is not the same as being bought by Wall Street" Wake Up Call for all the OWS (Occupy Wall Street) activists: You can’t OCCUPY WALL STREET, because greedy grifters Barack and Michelle Obama are already squatting on it. It’s the same old story sung in the words of a song, “The rich get rich and the poor get poorer”. According to Christopher Wallace at Fox News, Obama’s $400,000 Wall Street speech leaves the liberal base “stunned”.

    Money in Politics: President Obama's devotees no doubt had hoped he would come out swinging against President Trump. Instead, the only thing he's done so far is cash in on his presidency with a massive book deal and a six-figure speech gig. Earlier this month, Obama reportedly signed a book deal with Penguin Random House for more than $65 million for one book written by him and another written by Michelle. (The exact amount wasn't made public.) Assuming that figure is correct and they both write 500 page books, that amounts to roughly $144 per word for each of them....

    In an interview Thursday with Alter Family Politics on SiriusXM, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) weighed in on former President Obama's upcoming speech to Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald. Obama is expected to receive at least $400,000 for the speaking engagement. TOMMY ALTER: Senator Warren, what do you think about President Obama accepting $400,000 from Wall Street? SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN: Well, I was troubled by that. One of the things I talk about in the book is the influence of money. I describe it as a snake that slithers through Washington. And that it shows up in so many different ways...
