Obama failed with the swine flu worse than Trump did with Covid

The Democratic convention amounted in part to a forum for blaming President Trump for every coronavirus death in the United States so far. But as Kimberly Strassel points out in the Wall Street Journal, the Obama-Biden administration fell down much harder with their own attempt to curtail the 2009 H1N1 swine flu. But they got lucky. It turned out not to be as virulent as

Video || At John Lewis funeral, Obama demands end to the filibuster

It is now absolutely clear that the Democrats will get rid of the filibuster and steamroll their agenda if they win the Senate and keep the House. How come Republicans never think of these things when they hold the reins of power? Of our elected officials only Democrats seem to understand that this is a war for the future. Obama proposed a new civil rights

Obama praises protests but calls for peace and voting for Democrats

President Obama wrote an article for Medium saying that protesters were ovewhelmingly peaceful and are expressing legitimate grievances. Only, of course, his solution is to give them more of the same liberal policies that have been failing them for half a century. From his piece: The waves of protests across the country represent a genuine and legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices

Barr: Durham Not Expected to Investigate Obama or Biden

That’s not, I would argue, an luxury that a Democratic attorney general would afford a former Republican president in the same circumstances. Attorney General William Barr said Monday during a news conference that he does not expect U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is investigating the Obama administration’s Russia probe, to target Barack Obama or Joe Biden. But he didn’t rule out that Obama and Biden

Video || Obama Finally Endorses Biden

Oh help us, it’s 12 minutes. I could only get through some of it. It looks a lot more like a chance for Obama to sound off about things than an endorsement of Joe Biden. So, in case you’re feeling nostalgic, here’s another lecture from Barack Obama. Biden tweeted his gratitude.

Obama Administration Failed to Replenish Stockpile of N95 Masks

Amazing kudos to the Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg for reporting that something was Barack Obama’s fault and not President Trump’s. This new, and certainly uncomfortable territory for the MSM. So Obama didn’t bother to protect us from pandemic, but he never let a second go by when he wasn’t fighting global warming. According to the Washington Examiner: The national shortage of N95 respirator masks

On Presidents’ Day, Obama Takes Credit For Trump Economic Success

Barack Obama decided to use Presidents’ Day to get in an argument with another president. Well, okay, but the average GDP growth rate under Obama averaged around 2 percent, among the lowest of any modern president. Meantime, wages stagnated and the worker non-participation rate in the economy was at levels not seen since the 1970s. The economy grew just 1.6 percent in Obama’s final year.

Putin Said in 2013 He Had “Given Up” on Obama

Looks like maybe he didn’t like being lectured either. According to the Washington Examiner: Russian President Vladimir Putin said in 2013 that he was finished with President Barack Obama and would wait until the United States elected a president he could do business with. “I’ve given up on your president,” Putin said to then-Exxon chief Rex Tillerson, who would later become President Trump’s secretary of

The Obamas Buy a $12M Home on Martha’s Vineyard

The Vineyard, of course, is where they would take two weeks a year in the summers when Barack Obama was president. Now they can be on vacation all the time. Thirty acres, secluded — no riff raff — seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and 7,000 square feet. Seems by the state of the country after Obama left office that he was pretty much on vacation most

Trump Gets No Credit for Ordering Daring Baghdadi Raid that Biden Wouldn’t Have

Where are all the stories, like we had when Barack Obama offed Osama Bin Laden, about how the president courageously took the decision — a militarily and politically risky one — to kill Public Enemy #1? Where are the stories about how he deliberated, whom he asked, how he overrode the objections of the bellyachers? About how he threw politics to the wind to do

Trump: “Treasonous” Obama Spied on My Campaign

The left-wing MSM is handling the investigation into what the Obama administration did in 2016 as a politically-based conspiracy theory. They have no interest in malfeasance by the Obama administration and the possibility that Obama and his allies sought to subvert the election and hobble the newly elected president. Trump, in a new book, calls Obama treasonous. From the Washington Examiner: President Trump has ratched
