Newsflash for Mika: Dems are already starting to bash Barack Hussein Obama for his lousy job in “saving” the Dems. Via NewsBusters. MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski gave an fawning interview to former Obama Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett Thursday morning in a harsh reminder of just how differently reporters treated the Obama Administration compared to the current administration. Mika couldn’t contain her excitement at getting to talk to Jarrett even begging the former advisor repeatedly to get herself, Michelle or Barack involved in politics again, to “save the party.”….

Odds are they needed to do some kegels, too. I’m guessing still do. When we look back at the last 8 years when we finally find out exactly how much damage these fools did, we’ll be shocked. The new team has a lot on their plate. I’m confident they’ll succeed. Via Washington Examiner. As the early returns came in looking promising for Trump, Cunnane [a communications staffer] was a little “disturbed” to see the check mark next to Trump’s name signifying he was ahead in the electoral college. But he brushed the feeling aside and joked about the possibility of Trump’s win with other staffers. “Oh no, we’re losing!” he said. But as the bad news kept coming in, he...

Is it just me, or does the silhouette of Obama depicted on the cover of The Nation look like one of the characters from Mystery Science Theater 3000 ? Via Weekly Standard. The Nation is publishing its gala hagiographic Obama send-off issue—”The Obama Years: 2008-2016″—and does so perhaps more in sadness than in celebration. The articles are full of complaint and recriminations—but not, for the most part, aimed at the Dear Leader. There are gripes about the irredeemable electorate, such as the article with the subhead “The president succeeded in repairing our institutions—but millions of Americans wanted to blow them up instead.”…. There is wistfulness: “I Miss Our Sane, Calm, Empathetic, Funny, President Already,” is Katha Pollitt’s headline…. “Before Trump’s...

No, really, this is not from The Onion. Via NewsBusters. …an NBC reporter praised the completion of the first stage of the project as a great example of “showing people that government can still do big things.” This portion of the subway line took 96 years to complete. Now scheduled to open on New Year’s Day, 2017, the line was proposed in 1920. Put on hold because of the Great Depression, the project sputtered along until 2007 when construction restarted in earnest. One of several photos from the line’s checkered history shows Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller breaking ground for its construction in 1972. The 30 block expansion is the largest in 50 years for the aging subway system, with a...

How did this happen? Well, Charlie, Norah and Gayle: You carried the water for your ‘messiah,’ Barack Hussein Obama, for eight years, you all hailed Obamacare as an amazing success, and you ignored the suffering of real Americans as Obamacare began to implode. You’re welcome. Via Free Beacon. The anchors of CBS This Morning expressed bewilderment on Tuesday at the sharp premium hikes in Obamacare insurance plans, with one asking for an understanding for “why this is happening.”…. After Charlie Rose read out the report, Norah O’Donnell said, “We need a bigger understanding of why this is happening.” “We sure do,” Rose said. “Because the idea was not only to spread coverage around, but that by spreading the coverage around,...

Remember when Obama proclaimed: “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” And we all had a good laugh. Well, looks like Ron Allen actually fell for that line. Via NewsBusters. President Barack Obama spoke to reporters on Wednesday afternoon on the Paris climate change agreement and, almost on cue, NBC’s Ron Allen connected global warming to Hurricane Matthew set to bear down on the Bahamas, the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida. Speaking on MSNBC Live to host Kate Snow, Allen first gushed about how the President “believes so deeply in protecting the environment” that the deal marks “one of the most significant aspects of his legacy” before bringing in...

Somebody over at the Washington Post needs eyeglasses. Or a copy of Vogue… Via Free Beacon. The Washington Post’s fashion critic is calling Hillary Clinton a “style icon” that is influencing top designer’s runway shows. Comparing Clinton to the “not a great beauty” Georgia O’Keefe, Robin Givhan says designers are being inspired by the Democratic presidential nominee’s “strength.” “But beyond cut and color, designers are obsessing about strong and powerful women who are independent and enduring — perhaps even a bit scandalous,” Givhan wrote Friday. “There has been talk of O’Keeffe, Germaine Greer, Gloria Steinem, influential mothers and grandmothers — and of course, Hillary Clinton.”…. While she has called Melania Trump a “professional pretty person” whose “livelihood was based on...

Hillary sounded really tough yesterday, claiming she was “part of the hard decision to take terrorists off the battlefield.” Not sure why this was such a “hard decision.” But two years ago, Hillary spouted smart power, er, dangerous liberal psychobabble. Via American Mirror. While Hillary Clinton is now trying to talk tough against suspected Islamic terrorists in St. Paul and New York City, it was only two years ago she wanted to defeat them with hugs and hand-holding. In December 2014, Clinton gave a speech at Georgetown University in which she said we must “empathize” with America’s enemies. “This is what we call smart power,” Clinton told an audience of students and professors. “Using every possible tool and partner to...

Isn’t the Situation Room a place where the White House convenes with generals and national security advisers to address serious security matters? Oh wait, John Kerry says climate change is as great a threat to our national security as the threat of terrorism. Never mind. Via CNS News. Speaking…at the State Department at the “2016 Our Ocean Conference,” President Barack Obama said that a “healthier planet” is vital to U.S. “national security” and that he has conversations about climate change “in the Situation Room.” “But one thing that we all owe to [Secretary of State] John [Kerry] is his conviction that a healthier ocean and a healthier planet are about more than just our environment; they are also vital to...

The 49 people slaughtered in Orlando are unavailable for comment. Daily Caller. Harvard psychology professor — and celebrated pop shrink — Steven Pinker has advised the Western world not to worry about the ever-increasing number of deadly acts of terrorism committed by radical Muslims. Terror threats are “exaggerated,” Pinker said. “Due to the publicity that terrorist attacks generate, it seems like a completely rational fear to be afraid of a terrorist attack when, in reality, it should not be. It is a mistake to allow terrorism to dominate foreign policy on a global agenda.”…. “Comparing the two halves of the 20th century though shows you that there is a clear trend toward humanism,” Pinker told The European, citing the United...

If you think Obama is just “hitting the links” every day, biding his time until he leaves the Oval Office, think again. His ‘Prague Agenda,’ if implemented, will be yet another disaster. Via WSJ: Obama’s Nuclear Farewell: He is preparing to repudiate decades of U.S. deterrence policy With his time in office winding down, President Obama plans to make a valedictory round of changes to U.S. nuclear weapons policy. The aim is to cement his cherished “Prague agenda,” named for the Czech city where in 2009 he set out his vision for a nuclear-free world. The moves would more likely cement his legacy for arms-control illusions that are producing a new era of nuclear proliferation. Mr. Obama’s Prague agenda has...

Pathetic. Via NewsBusters. ….Regarding the Tuesday speech, which also denounced Donald Trump, Andrea Mitchell was beside herself: “This was a passionate cry from the heart about his vision of America by this President. He has never before taken on Donald Trump and he just eviscerated Donald Trump in that extraordinary speech.” Disgraced journalist Brian Williams anchored live coverage and enthused, “Well, we have never seen that before. The remarks that morphed into a foursquare defense of his position and a full-on attack into the rhetoric and words from Donald Trump just yesterday in his speech about radical Islamic terrorism.”….

We’ve always known the assignation of ‘Great Orator’ to Obama by the drooling media and political bureaucracy was delusional. Here now for your enjoyment is Obama the Great Orator having a meltdown because he just can’t find the words to describe how Trump will destroy civilization. Is it because he’s jealous that he didn’t finish the job? Via Gateway Pundit. Poor Barack. He wanted to sound more powerful. He really did! The lame duck president went to Indiana today to hold a rally and trash-talk Donald Trump. Unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned. He turned into a stuttering mess.
