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.”….

Another day, another lie from Susan Rice. And hey, great job, Obama! I’m sure the Syrian man who buried his wife and twins yesterday after the latest chemical attack thanks you for your efforts. Via Daily Caller. During a January 2017 interview with NPR, Susan Rice lauded the Obama administration for de-arming Bashar al-Assad using a “solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force.” “We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished,” Obama’s former national security advisor stated. “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give...

The measure failed by six votes. It would have made August 4th a legal holiday in Illinois But cheer up, Obamabots: August 4th is also National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. Cookie, anyone? 🙂 Via CNN. Illinois lawmakers failed to pass a measure in the legislature that would have made former President Barack Obama’s birthday a statewide holiday, according to the Chicago Tribune. The bill would have observed August 4 as a legal holiday in his home state, but the Chicago Tribune said the proposal was six votes short of passing, where it would have next moved to the Illinois Senate. “The fourth day of August of each year shall be a legal holiday to be known as Barack Obama’s Birthday...

Kudos to Senator Cruz for this epic tweet.

Seriously, America, this is the person we actually put in the Oval Office for eight years? Via Free Beacon. “Obama makes rest of us look bad with his effortless kitesurfing” – The Washington Post, Early Lead, February 7, 6:32 PM A glowing report in the Washington Post claiming former President Barack Obama is “pretty much a natural on a kiteboard” is filled with factual errors, according to a Washington Free Beacon fact check “Obama makes rest of us look bad with his effortless kitesurfing,” the headline for a piece by Kelyn Soong reads. Soong “works in the sports department” at the Washington Post and writes about tennis and running…. “It’s well documented that Obama is pretty good at basketball, but...

Carrying two pounds of cocaine, and a high-speed chase with cops: Sounds like a model citizen. Maybe Obama can give him a medal. Or something. Via NY Post. A Texas man whose life sentence on drug charges was commuted by former President Obama is back behind bars after cops caught him with more than two pounds of cocaine following a high-speed chase, according to a report. Robert M. Gill, 68, had been imprisoned in 1990 for for cocaine and heroin distribution before Obama set him free along with other non-violent federal inmates in 2015, the San Antonio Express News reported. During his eight years in office, Obama commuted 1,715 prison sentences, more than any other president…. In signing his release,...

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...

Agitator-in-Chief, er, “constitutional scholar” Obama, weighed in on Manning in 2011: “We are a national of laws.” This tweet nicely sums it up: The Chelsea Manning deal proves Obama is fine when Wikileaks endangers US soldiers and only outraged when Wikileaks embarrasses Democrats. — THIS JUST IN… (@weknowwhatsbest) January 18, 2017 Via Daily Caller. In 2011, President Barack Obama declared that Army PFC Bradley Manning, who now goes by the name Chelsea, “broke the law” by releasing hundreds of thousands of sensitive or classified U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks. Obama commuted Manning’s sentence Tuesday as one of his last acts as president. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act, but will now be released in May 2017 instead...

Soon-to-be Ex-POTUS & FLOTUS will be moving into their new, $5M+ digs, with nine bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and a whine, er, wine cellar. So, of course they want a wall to protect them. But wanting the USA to be protected by a wall on the border? Not so much. HT TMZ.

Obama’s presidency has always been about punishing “racist” America and making our lives miserable. So, yep, all about us. Via CNS News. President Barack Obama has announced that he will be giving his farewell address on Tuesday, Jan. 10, from Chicago…. Obama also noted that in presenting a farewell address he would be following a precedent set by George Washington, who published his own farewell address in 1796. In his own farewell address, Washington warned the nation to avoid running up government debt and “inveterate antipathies against particular nations,” and said that religion and morality were indispensable to the “political prosperity” of the nation…. Here is the announcement President Barack Obama has published of his coming farewell: “My farewell address...

Hey Barack: Quack quack! Via IJR. When the White House this afternoon released a litany of retaliatory punishments against the Russians for the alleged hacking into U.S. email systems and databases—“Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities,” as the administration called it—the Russian embassy in the United Kingdom tweeted its thoughts on the move: President Obama expels 35 diplomats in Cold War deja vu.

Back in ’08, Candidate Obama went to Israel, to pander for Jewish votes, er, to gain a better understanding of the Middle East. And he visited the Western Wall. It is traditional for visitors to place notes with private prayers in the wall’s crevices. Obama’s note was published in an Israeli newspaper, and a firestorm ensued, as it was condemned as a violation of his privacy and a “sacrilegious action.” And then it was revealed that it was a publicity stunt; the note had been leaked by Obama’s campaign. So, even before he was elected POTUS, he was a pain in the a.. piece of work…well, whatever… Via Washington Examiner. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a jab at President...

Alan Dershowitz is a Professor at Harvard Law School. He was also an ardent supporter of Barack Obama. But now, the bromance seems to be finally over. Two questions for Prof Dershowitz: Just about every blue collar worker in the U.S. saw that Obama was going to be trouble. Remember Joe the Plumber? What took *you* so long??

Looking forward to next year, when Barack Hussein Obama does not even make the Forbes list. Maybe he can be #1 on “Time Spent on the Golf Course” list. Or something. Via IJR Review. ….In 2015, Obama was listed as the third most powerful person in the world, via Forbes’s annual list. Back then, the publication wrote, in part: U.S. President Barack Obama fell one spot on this year’s list to #3. There’s no doubt that the United States remains the world’s greatest economic, cultural, diplomatic, technological and military power. But as Obama enters the final year of his presidency, it’s clear his influence is shrinking, and it’s a bigger struggle than ever to get things done. Yet, Forbes’s 2016...
