As President Donald Trump prepares to take off on his first trip overseas as president, former President Obama’s officials are already setting the narrative of failure. “Trump is substantively unprepared for high-stakes, 9-day foreign trip, but isn’t bringing ANY actual NSC experts (SDs or Ds) on AF1 to brief,” Colin Kahl, former deputy assistant to President Obama, wrote on Twitter. “No way. Seriously?” Susan Rice, Obama’s former national security adviser, snarked back. But the White House suggests that this kind of chatter is idle speculation from uninformed former aides out of power. “There will be a lot of NSC staff
To Obama, every trip to any foreign country was a vacation. He was wined and dined and treated like a Persian Poohbah. That black man Community Organizer from da hood was never treated so good even in his wildest dreams. But, doing things, hard stuff, statesmanship? No Way! that was way, way over his pay grade. Nope. You could see him gnawing on his nicorette gum, yuking it up. Now, how can trump do any worse than that on a State visit. At least, PT won´t be bowing and kowtowing to these petty tyrants and potentates.
The rise and spread ofJV Team ISIS happened (coincidentally?) on the watch of BarackHussein. ISIS profusely thanks BarackHussein, his Enemedia enablers, and the Former Obama Aides. "Disaster" is apparently in the eye of the beholder.
#7 Amen and a thousand likes. The difference is all of us here knew what a disaster his foreign policy was yet the sycophants in the leftist globalist msm wrote glowing reports of his success which was just pure bull excrement. Like #1 said at least we know President Trump won´t bow down to muslims, Chinese or Japanese and is capable of projecting American strength instead of weakness like obama!
Obama certainly set the world on fire. Not because of his so-called oratory skills but because of his arrogant know-it-all incompetence and his America hating staff. We are now living in a burning inferno that is ready to erupt at any moment. Save your advice, homies.
@13 And they were good trips for the hundreds of friends, family and hangers on that always went with them, staying in the most expensive rooms and prolly eating Wagyu beef for breakfast. We now get to see how he (Obola) still travels as a potentate but at least taxpayers aren´t paying, except for the secret service and I´d like for him to have to cover that himself with his ´self made´ million$.
Seems to me that I can recall that quite a few of the foreign leaders that Obozo "visited" came away commenting about how big a dolt Obozo really is. He simply didn´t make an impression on just about anyone except his own people. Now, I don´t think that is going to happen on President Trump. The whole world already knows that HE is ready to fight back. (Vis a vis missiles fired into Syria)

The collective swamp dwellers who consider President Trump a back woods uncouth lout are overlooking the self made business giant who sets the playing field to his advantage. He does not need hundreds of aides smoothing his way to dealing with leaders of any kind( the reason the taking orders from Putin chant is so nothing. The last thing America needs is another bowing puppet. This first visit day did set the theme--America did not sink into the fake leaders swamp.
Hey I know it´s only been 24 hours, but so far the "disasters" have only included: a royal welcome, a 350 billion dollar deal, a commitent to form a Middle East military pact to fight Islamic terrorism, and a President of the United States who doesn´t bow to the waist to foreign leaders and who doesn´t bad mouth America.
Is it just me or does this sound more like "winning"? But yeah, I can see why this is interpreted as "disasters" to those Obamunists who did everything they possibly could to harm America.
Two of the Pentagon´s four specially reinforced ´Doomsday´ planes, designed to withstand the heat from a nuclear blast, have been grounded after being damaged by a tornado. The Air Force said Friday that two E4-B Boeing 747s were damaged when a tornado whipped through Nebraska´s Offutt Air Force Base with little advance warning on June 16. Built in the 1970s during the Cold War, the planes are essentially flying command centers that can refuel in the sky and are designed to remain airborne for days on end in times of crisis. The two damaged ´Doomsday´ planes were reportedly parked in
Hugh Hewitt‘s new MSNBC show debuted this morning with a pretty big get: CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Pompeo spoke with Hewitt about everything from Russia to Iran to cracking down on leaks, but he also talked about President Trump‘s interest in the intel reports he is provided: “President Obama consumed his intelligence in a different way. President Trump is incredibly demanding of the intelligence community, asks us incredibly difficult questions, and then counts on myself and other leaders in the IC to deliver those answers for him.” When Hewitt brought up the criticism from others that Trump seems “uninterested in
“As a nation, the U.S. has a deep and enduring connection to guns. Integrated into the fabric of American society since the country’s earliest days, guns remain a point of pride for many Americans. Whether for hunting, sport shooting or personal protection, most gun owners count the right to bear arms as central to their freedom,” reports a wide-ranging new poll from the Pew Research Center. It found that 74 percent of all U.S. gun owners say owning a gun is “essential to their freedom.” Another 73 percent of the owners say they could never see themselves “not owning a
Sen. Bernie Sanders is headlining a "don´t take our health care" rally tonight in Pittsburgh as a first stop on a three-state tour to mobilize opposition to the Senate health care bill, which the Vermont senator has called "by far the most harmful piece of legislation I have seen in my lifetime." Sanders teamed up with progressive advocacy organization MoveOn.org to hold rallies this weekend in Pittsburgh; Columbus, Ohio; and Charleston, West Virginia, with the goal of pressuring Republican senators in each of the states to oppose the legislation released Thursday. Republican Sens. Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Rob Portman in
The Hill headlines: “Dems push leaders to talk less about Russia.” Frustrated Democrats hoping to elevate their election fortunes have a resounding message for party leaders: Stop talking so much about Russia. Democratic leaders have been beating the drum this year over the ongoing probes into the Trump administration’s potential ties to Moscow, taking every opportunity to highlight the saga and forcing floor votes designed to uncover any business dealings the president might have with Russian figures. But rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like
A week after a gunman opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice, triggering bipartisan calls for unity, Democrats have turned up their rhetoric. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) was shot in the hip on June 14 along with four others after a shooter targeted the GOP practice in Alexandria, Va. The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was an avid supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) who had a deep hatred of Republicans and President Donald Trump. Republicans and Democrats subsequently joined in unison to call for lawmakers to tone done their political rhetoric. The rhetoric was toned
Senate and House Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, respectively, did not respond to Breitbart News’s request for comment on actor Johnny Depp’s remarks at a festival in England about assassinating President Donald Trump. Breitbart News sought comments in an email sent twice to Senate Minority Leader Schumer and House Minority Leader Pelosi’s press officials. Breitbart also sought comment from Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) but received no response from either, both of whom are outspoken critics of the president. On Thursday, Depp said at “Cinemageddon,” a film stage
California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.
Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax
In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury. Introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, about a 17th-century poet who notoriously drank himself to an early death, the 54-year-old chose to discuss American politics. "I think [Donald] Trump needs help," he said. "There are a lot of dark places he could go." He added: "I´m not insinuating anything - by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last
The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle
[…] John Anzalone, Ossoff’s pollster, said the Democrat’s campaign succeeded in turning out its voters — but they were swamped by Republicans who came out in numbers that ended up dwarfing previous high-profile special elections (link) That’s a very interesting admission/statement for a Politico article. That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out. (Politico) Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in
The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer. A more
President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the
