MOCKING JOHN F. KENNEDY

Mocking John F. Kennedy

Barack Obama is honored for his ‘Profile in Courage’

March 6, 2017

The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation had a momentous announcement on March 2. The foundation would honor Barack Obama, who was off on a shopping excursion with Michelle at the time, with the JFK prize for “elevating the standard of political courage in a new century.”

Mr. Obama’s presidency, the foundation said, “consistently reflected in so many ways, big and small, the definition of courage” articulated by JFK in his Pulitzer Prize-winning 1957 book, “Profiles in Courage.”

So what courageous events in Mr. Obama’s presidency attracted such admiration of the judges? They cited Obamacare, which is now collapsing all around us; his deal with Iran, which preserved the mullahs’ program for developing a nuclear bomb, and returned $150 billion in assets frozen abroad, and his rapprochement with Cuba, for which the United States received nothing in return, not even repatriation of criminal fugitives.

The Profile in Courage award has lost whatever remaining cachet and credibility it had, and dishonors Mr. Kennedy, whose personal courage in combat in the South Pacific during World War II and his political courage in standing up to the Soviet Russians at the nadir of the Cold War, is the stuff of legend (though it was not legend, but real). The prize survives as a trophy awarded to liberals by liberals. The JFK prize now joins the Nobel Peace Prize in Mr. Obama’s umbrella and overshoes closet in his fortified mansion in Kalorama, awarded for doing nothing only 10 months after he was inaugurated.

DEMOCRATS TURN AGAINST ISRAEL

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

 

Finally, a few Democrats are starting to question their party’s turn to the Far Left’s ideology.   Nancy

Democrats Turn Against Israel

In 1972 ours was the first party to back moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Rep. Keith Ellison’s selection as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee is the latest ratification of our party’s turn away from Israel. Mr. Ellison, who complained in 2010 that “United States foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of seven million people,” narrowly lost a bid for DNC chairman, then was chosen by acclamation as deputy.

The Democrats used to be the pro-Israel party. President Truman recognized the Jewish state within minutes of its independence in 1948. In 1972 the convention that nominated George McGovern ratified the first major-party platform to support moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The Republicans didn’t follow until 1996.

A lot has changed for the Democrats in 45 years. President Obama created an atmosphere of outright hostility between the U.S. and Israel. He made a nuclear deal with Iran and refused to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution in December that condemned settlements in the disputed West Bank.

HOW OBAMA IS SCHEMING TO SABOTAGE TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

 

Once a Community Organizer, always a Community Organizer !   Be sure to  scroll down below the first article to read the second article where Obama tells his supporters not to lose hope and promises them that he will return to be a Community Organizer.     Nancy
THE NEW YORK POST
Paul Sperry is the author of “The Great American Bank Robbery,” which details the link between race-based housing policies and the mortgage crisis.
When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy, it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.
Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.
“It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged,” he said in a conference call from the White House. “But get over it.” He demanded they “move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished.”
“Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope.”

OBAMA POURED $9.2 BILLION INTO U.N. IN FINAL YEAR IN OFFICE

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Obama poured $9.2B into U.N. in final year

Obama speaking at G20 Nov2015Former President Barack Obama poured at least $9.2 billion of American taxpayers’ money into the United Nations and its agencies during his last year in office.

The State Department recently disclosed the amount via a document it posted on its website that provides a summary of U.S. government spending outlaid to international organizations.

Funding the global community more and more

The total of $9.2 billion is an increase of approximately 20 percent, compared to the $7.7 billion the Obama administration’s State Department paid out in 2010 – the year the White House quickly stopped reporting on its total spending in support of the U.N.

A huge percentage of the Obama administration’s payments to global agencies went to the U.N. – which has come under fire of late for its admitted anti-Israel policies.

“The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending,” Fox News reported. “The new tally includes nearly $360 million for the controversial United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA, which is regularly accused of inculcating violent anti-Israel attitudes and even abetting terrorist attacks on Israel, which it strongly denies. That is nearly a 50 per cent jump over the $238.3 million UNRWA got from the U.S. in 2010.”

In an early attempt to stem the Obama administration’s last-ditch effort to spend U.S. tax dollars on pro-Muslim interests abroad, President Donald Trump froze his predecessor’s attempt to give a $221-million donation designated to help the Palestinian Authority reach its goal to become its own state.

It is reported that the Trump administration will continue to look to cut back the excessive spending that Obama directed toward the U.N. and its global agenda.

So many of you have shared  this C-span video of Bill Clinton  speaking on immigration from 1995.  How ironic that this is the same message being repeated by   President Trump yet you would think by the way the Left is reacting, that President Trump’s position is completely unacceptable.

THE WORLD FEARS TRUMP’S AMERICA. THAT’S A GOOD THING

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

 

THE NEW YORK TIMES

The World Fears Trump’s America. That’s a Good Thing.

Among global elites, Donald J. Trump’s recent phone call with Taiwan’s president has induced fear on a scale seldom matched since Ronald Reagan’s “Evil Empire” speech. The Sydney Morning Herald warnedthat the phone call “risks provoking a cold war between the United States and China with potentially catastrophic economic and security implications.” The fright appears to confirm the narrative formed earlier this year by headlines like “Donald Trump Terrifies World Leaders.”

The fear is real. Mr. Trump has indeed terrified foreign leaders with his “America first” mantra, his promises to enlarge the American military and his tough talk on everything from the Islamic State to Air Force One. The good news is that his administration can turn this fear to the benefit of the United States.

During the last eight years, President Obama showed what happens when the world’s greatest power tries strenuously to avoid giving fright. He began his presidency with lofty vows to conciliate adversaries, defer to the opinions of other countries and reduce America’s military commitments. Consequently, he received rapturous applause in European capitals and a Nobel Peace Prize. In the real world of geopolitics, however, the results have been catastrophic.

OBAMA’S FISCAL LEGACY

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

 

This article was written the day before the election but contains very sobering and alarming information on the fiscal health of our country and what the next president  has to deal with.   As if there is not enough bad news in this article, the federal debt is approaching $20 trillion very quickly and increasing the debt ceiling will face Congress and the president by a March deadline.   Nancy

Obama’s Fiscal Legacy

The President’s luck is about to run out—on his successor’s watch.

Congratulations to the President-elect, whoever you are, because you’re going to need it. Our deadline arrived Tuesday before we knew the election outcome, but not before we can say with confidence that President Obama is leaving his successor a large and growing federal budget problem.

That’s the message in the Congressional Budget Office’s summary, released Monday, of the fiscal year that closed in September. Though the subject barely came up in the campaign—little policy substance did—the federal fisc is once again heading for trouble. There are some lessons in this for the next President, who will quickly realize that Mr. Obama’s fiscal luck has finally run out—on his successor’s watch.

THE UPRISING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

 


Patrick Caddell: The real election surprise? The uprising of the American people

Patrick Caddell is a Democratic pollster and Fox News contributor. He served as pollster for  President Jimmy Carter, Gary Hart, Joe Biden and others. He is a Fox News political analyst and co-host of “Political Insiders” Sundays on Fox News Channel.

For more than two years the American people, in a great majority, from left to right, have been in revolt against the political class and the financial elites in America. It is a revolt with historic parallels, most closely resembling the Jacksonian revolution of the 1820s. It is an uprising. It is a peaceful uprising of a people who see a country in decline and see nothing but failure in the performance of their leadership institutions. And they have signaled their intent to take back their country and to reclaim their sovereignty.

Unfortunately, the analysts, the pollsters and most importantly the commentariat of the political class have never understood, and in fact are psychologically incapable of understanding what is happening. And for the entire cycle of this presidential campaign they have failed to grasp what was happening before their eyes – for it runs counter to everything they believe about themselves.

In truth, they are suffering from cognitive dissonance  believing in their righteous superiority and are not capable of realizing that it is they who have become the adversary of the American people. And therefore they have been wrong, in this entire election cycle, every step of the way.

For them, American politics only began yesterday. They know little history and have no appreciation of the collective consciousness of the American people. Whether it is the campaign of Bernie Sanders, who came within a hair’s breadth of knocking out the coronated nominee of the Democratic establishment or on the other side, the emergence of the total outsider Donald Trump, the most improbable candidate of all. In truth, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, sucked from the same trough even if it was from opposite ends. But the critical point that is missed, by almost everyone, was that neither Sanders nor Trump created this uprising. They were chosen vehicles – they did not create these movements, these movements created them.
