The Remains of an Administration

Obama’s policies are in tatters, and the worst scandals of his White House are coming to light.
by Victor Davis Hanson    May 26,2020
“One is not struck by the truth until prompted quite accidentally by some external event.”
— Kazuo Ishiguro, The Remains of the Day
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:
Gilded Socialism

Finally, the Obama post presidency did not help his cause. After eight years of lecturing the nation about the proper time to profit, or identifying the point after which there was no need to make additional money, or that private businesspeople did not really build their businesses, or the need to spread the wealth around, Obama liberated from office almost immediately rushed to the life of private jets and luxury yachts.

He signed multimillion-dollar tech and media deals characterized by requiring little expertise and less work but the promiscuous use of his brand and name. The erstwhile lecturer in chief about redlining and insidious bias bought a mansion in Washington’s toniest district; and after warning about rising seas, coastal flooding, and the need to lower them, he bought a seaside estate at Martha Vineyard, for the fire sale price of just under $12 million. In other words, he knew no time to stop profiting; there was no point when he had enough money; he saw no reason to spread his wealth around; and  he really did build his own empire,

The less charismatic purveyors of the Obama legacy have not done well.

Hillary Clinton hired a foreign national to compile a dirty dossier on Trump and seed it in the Obama administration. She blew an election and ended up babbling and fixated permanently on her failure, before pathetically joining the “Resistance.” Joe Biden in his dotage may be spared her angst, given his own seeming inability to know exactly where he is and what he is supposed to say. Obama was supposed to have jump-started the careers of dozens of young, charismatic “diversity” imitators in the presidential arena, such as Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Deval Patrick, Kamala Harris, and Andrew Yang. All crashed and burned in the Democratic primaries, whether because they were not the Obama Adonis or because they reminded voters of his shallowness.

We were supposed to see a fundamental transformation of the country between 2009 and 2025, as the Obama-Clinton 16-year regnum finally made America right and correct. Instead, we witnessed eight years that ended in scandal whose full dimensions of criminality will take years to process.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: WE DON’T KNOW HOW CLOSE WE CAME TO THE COUP SUCCEEDING

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

 

This response to a caller from Rush Limbaugh came from Rush’s facebook page.  We have witnessed an incredible attempted coup against a sitting president.  Whether any of the culprits will serve jail time is up for question BUT the reputations of the FBI, Justice Department, CIA and Obama and his administration have all been shredded.  Obama wanted his legacy to survive for decades — I don’t think this is exactly what he had in mind !!!  Please share and help to keep Obama’s legacy alive !   Cheers  Nancy 

RUSH: Bill in McHenry, Illinois. You’re next. I’m glad you waited, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush, and 43 million dittos for you, sir, with prayers and thoughts always.

RUSH: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very, very much. I appreciate that.

CALLER: You bet. Just a thought that I asked Bo about. With Attorney General Barr and Mr. Durham still hovering over the target, we’re getting more transparency in government with documents being declassified and all that. Can we sit here and predict which one of these rats is going to turn state’s evidence or start squealing on the others to save their own hides? Is there someone we can pick out of these smarmy individuals that might walk the plank?

RUSH: I have been asking a variation of that question for a long time, such as which of these people will ultimately decide they don’t want to go to jail for James Comey? But, you know, as time goes on here… (sigh) Here we go optimism/pessimism. I really… When I answer this question honestly, it makes people mad and they start calling me and dumping on me like I’m responsible for it.

This subject came up. My friend Andy McCarthy was on Fox and was asked what kind of accountability there’s gonna be for all of these people, and he said he thinks not much, that there already has been, a lot of them have lost their jobs, a lot of them have been publicly humiliated. But he’s not of the opinion that there are going to be actual trials of people. I hope he’s wrong. He’s making the statement based on experience as a federal prosecutor.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You know, as to this business of flipping, you know, traditionally that doesn’t happen. Traditionally, leftists do not flip on each other. In fact, can anybody name for me the tell-all book from the Clinton administration? There was none. Can anybody identify for me the tell-all book from the Obama administration? There isn’t one.

They just don’t do it.

They don’t break ranks.

A TIME TO HATE

A Time to Hate
It’s not too late.
by Rabbi Dov Fischer, Esq. – American Spectator – May 11, 2020


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to guard, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
— Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) 3:1-8

Through eight years, I accepted the rules of the game. Obama was president. He won fair and square because the Republicans serially put up two milquetoast opponents who were incapable of offering a vision or articulating a message that inspired. John McCain had been an American wartime hero who stood by his men, refused early release, and withstood torture in the “Hanoi Hilton” 40 years earlier. But he had no business running for a presidency two generations later for which he was not prepared to fight and for which he had no vision. And then came Mitt Romney, his etch-a-sketch candidacy, his binders full of women, and his Romneycare, which served as the model for the Obamacare and which was the single most galvanizing issue in 2012 for Republican conservatives. In order to throw out Obamacare, the Republican Party offered us conservatives … what, Romneycare? Tough for us conservatives to sing in that tabernacle choir.
I accepted Obama. I never articulated his first name, and I never called him “president,” but I accepted the results and accepted that this Pretender was our country’s lawfully elected chief executive. I watched his arrogance, the unctuous way he carried himself literally with his nose up, the way he never held a railing while walking a stairway because he was too cool, the kinds of human dreck he regularly invited as his White House guests, and I accepted it all with the soft whisper, “This, too, shall pass.” I watched the Corrupt Journalist Corps idolize him, crown him a king, admire him as a messiah and a deity, and I accepted the milieu. This, too, in time would pass. It meant living through eight years of the deepest public corruption. Lois Lerner stealing an election by leveraging the awesome power of the Internal Revenue Service to close down legitimate conservative political groups. Eric Holder — the nobleman who urged people to kick enemies — bringing lawlessness and corruption into the Justice Department, even approving the “Fast and Furious” idea of releasing lethal weapons to Mexican drug lords in the cockamamie scheme to find out how they access and move their weapons. Glenn Beck exposed Obama’s Maoist communications director, Anita Dunn, who walked children through the White House. There was ACORN. Just one corruption after another.

VIDEO – THE DEEP STATE HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

 

This is a  fascinating and informative video interview by Bill Moyers of a long time congressional staffer, Mike Lofgren, who is the  author of two books,’The Party is Over’ and ‘Anatomy of the Deep State’.  The interview was done in 2014 discussing  the Deep State  which was alive and  well  even long  before Donald  Trump appeared on the scene in 2016.  Some of the subjects that are discussed are Eisenhower’s warning against the military industrial complex, the influence of Wall Street and  Silicon Valley in Washington, The FISA court, and how NASA is  also deeply involved.  So fascinating  to learn how they all nefariously work together in The Deep State.     Nancy

Mike Lofgren, a congressional staff member for 28 years, joins Bill Moyers to talk about what he calls Washington’s “Deep State,” in which elected and unelected figures collude to protect and serve powerful vested interests. “It is how we had deregulation, financialization of the economy, the Wall Street bust, the erosion or our civil liberties and perpetual war,” Lofgren tells Moyers.

This is an incredibly shocking  video of a talk that Adam Andrzejewski, founder and CEO  of openthebooks.com  gave regarding waste, fraud, corruption and abuse in all levels of our  government at a Hillsdale College event .   He names all those that are involved in the abuse of our taxpayer money.   This is not a Republican or a Democrat issue as the corruption is widely spread  throughout  our government. If this level of corruption is allowed to continue, our country will be greatly damaged.   Please share with all your contacts.     Nancy

ICON LECTURE WILL TAKE ON PROGRESSIVE AGENDA ROADMAP – MARCH 17, 2020, CHAPEL HILL, NC

Friday, March 6th, 2020

 

ICON Lecture will take on ‘progressive agenda roadmap’

By A.P. Dillon   March 5, 2020
For those interested in hearing more, Michel’s ICON Lecture will take place on March 17. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.iconlectureseries.com/.

CHAPEL HILL — A lecture on government spending, which highlights the high cost of progressive programs, will be taking place next month as part of the ICON Lecture series.

Adam Michel, a senior policy analyst on tax and debt with the Heritage Foundation, will be giving a talk titled “The progressive roadmap to soak the middle class.”

The Heritage Foundation is a conservative D.C. think tank that advocates for limited government, free-market economics and expanded individual opportunity.

The lecture comes along just as socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has gained steam towards becoming the Democratic Party’s nominee

“The progressive agenda, as it is articulated by any of the prominent Democrats and some on the left — taken in whole or in segments — is an incredible departure from fiscal sanity,” Michel told NSJ.

“It is arithmetically impossible to fund the progressive agenda with taxes on the rich alone,” said Michel.

Sanders’ recent publication of a fact sheet on how he plans to fund his agenda items is largely a list of steep tax increases. Michel saw this coming and warns that taxes on the rich will not be nearly enough to pay for Sanders’ wish list.

“If you were to confiscate every dollar earned by every taxpayer with incomes over $200,000 a year, you would only pay for about half of what is being promised by the progressive, left agenda,” said Michel.

Michel warns that if corrective actions aren’t taken, government expenditures will require much larger tax increases on middle-class Americans and even higher taxes on a much larger number of taxpayers.

Former Trump deputy national security adviser KT McFarland discusses her new book which details her treatment by FBI agents taking part in the Mueller probe.

Revolution: Trump, Washington and “We the People” Hardcover – February 25, 2020    by KT McFarland

When Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor left Washington, she disappeared from sight. Now former government official and political commentator KT McFarland returns with tenacity, resolve, and the truth about the Trump Administration and those seeking to destroy it.

For decades, KT McFarland has been one of the country’s most prominent conservative foreign policy experts. She was part of the Trump Revolution from the beginning. As Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor, she had a seat at the table for everything: Trump’s unconventional campaign and upset victory; his throw-out-the-rule-book Trump Tower Transition; the chaotic first months in the West Wing; the unusual events surrounding General Flynn’s firing; and the sprawling Mueller investigation.

DEMOCRATS WANT A PROPHET, NOT A PRESIDENT

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Democrats Want a Prophet, Not a President

They’re increasingly rigid and orthodox, even as Republicans have shown a new flexibility.

By Bobby Jindal    Mr. Jindal served as governor of Louisiana, 2008-16, and was a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.   February 11, 2020

The Democrats have turned religious. Not in the sense that they espouse a belief in an omnipotent and benevolent Creator or eternal and universal moral principles. They are religious in the sense that they hold dogmatic beliefs that are impervious to contradiction by logic, evidence or experience, and cultivate a moral superiority toward unbelievers. The party that loudly prides itself on tolerance and diversity is increasingly intolerant in at least three areas.

First, Democrats have moved beyond traditional environmentalism, with its emphasis on regulation, technological innovation and market incentives to achieve incremental progress, toward a radical vision grounded in an unshakable belief in climate apocalypse. Both parties once cooperated to protect endangered species and clean the air, water and soil. Today’s Democrats demand bans on fracking and new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and endorse the elimination of all fossil fuels and decarbonization of the economy in unrealistic time frames. Rather than aspirational moonshots, intended to inspire the public and private sectors to work together, Democrats use these impossible goals as rationales for completely restructuring how Americans live, work, commute and even eat.

More-radical activists regard eating meat, driving SUVs, having children, flying and using plastic straws as akin to mortal sins. During last week’s primary debate, Tom Steyer went so far as to declare that climate change, not terrorism or a resurgent China, is the “biggest problem that we face internationally in the world.” Democrats are increasingly willing to sacrifice allies—such as union workers in extraction and construction—to scramble after unreachable climate targets. Sen. Bernie Sanders denounced the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, endorsed by the AFL-CIO, because it was silent on climate change.

THE STATE OF THE DEMOCRATS

Monday, February 10th, 2020

 

If you would like to donate to Kevin McCarthy in his bid to be Speaker of the House, please go to www.TakeTheHouse.com    More  years of Nancy Pelosi’s temper tantrums with the Democrats in control of the House and attempting once again to impeach President Trump is just too painful to even contemplate !  Nancy

The State of the Democrats

The split between progressives and moderates could sink the party in November.

by Kimberly A. Strassel   February 7,2020

Donald Trump visited Congress this week to declare the state of the union “stronger than ever before.” Speaker Nancy Pelosi concluded the evening by highlighting the state of the Democratic Party: Intensely—perhaps fatally—divided.

That’s the prism through which to view this week’s headlines: The Iowa debacle, Democrats’ State of the Union theatrics, the president’s impeachment acquittal. Division has coursed through Democratic politics for at least the past four years. The media tries hard to present this split as nothing more than the usual intraparty tension. It’s significantly deeper than that, and Democratic hopes for the 2020 election hinge on it.

The Iowa derailment didn’t begin Monday afternoon or even in the months leading up to the failure of the results-reporting app. This train went off the tracks right after the 2016 Democratic primary contest, as a bitter progressive wing of the party stewed over Bernie Sanders’s defeat. They accused the Democratic establishment of rigging the process for Hillary Clinton—starting with Iowa, where the results were close, and where Mr. Sanders’s supporters outright challenged the legitimacy of Mrs. Clinton’s victory.

Hoping for peace, and in the name of “transparency,” party officials adopted the wildly complicated system on display Monday. The delayed results continue to be riddled with errors, making the outcome even less credible than in 2016. Sanders allies are already crying foul. They’re also pointing to new Democratic National Committee rules for debates, and nominations for convention spots, as evidence that one side of the party is again trying to deny the other side a victory.

That there are two, extremely polarized sides is also the one clear takeaway from the Iowa muddle. While the Sanders and Pete Buttigieg campaigns argue over how many state-delegate equivalents can dance on the head of a pin, the bigger point is that they ended the final vote with near equal numbers. Overall, the two candidates unapologetically pushing Medicare for All (Bernie and Elizabeth Warren) took 47% of the final vote, while the three more “moderate” contenders (Mr. Buttigieg, Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar) took 51%.

The chasm in the party has been on display particularly under Speaker Pelosi’s leadership. It brewed in the bitter spring fights over which wing got its way on how to sanction Rep. Ilhan Omar for anti-Semitic comments; which wing spoke for the party on climate and health care; which wing set its antigun agenda. And most consequentially, which wing won the day on impeachment. Mrs. Pelosi ultimately gave in to threats against her speakership and allowed her firebrands to serve as the face of the party in a weak and doomed impeachment proceeding.

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is basking in positive headlines after voting to convict, but the more immediately consequential votes remain those cast by Democratic moderates—who were sacrificed to the passions of Mrs. Pelosi’s liberal wing. Thirty-one House Democrats are on the ballot this year in districts won in 2016 by Mr. Trump—who has climbed to a personal-high 49% Gallup approval rating. Sen. Doug Jones (D., Ala.) voted to convict a president who won his state by 28 points last time around. Sen. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) is facing uneven polling numbers. Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) is spared an election this year but hasn’t helped his future election prospects.
