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.
Hundreds of protesters gathered this morning at the U.S. Capitol after Senate Republicans released their plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Katie Pavlich noted that many of the demonstrators have not even gotten a look at what´s in the 142-page bill. (Tweets/Videos) One protester yelled "no cuts to Medicaid!" as he was carried off by several officers, while another accused Mitch McConnell of trying to "kill" people. The Senate is taking up health care legislation of its own after the House passed the American Health Care Act last month. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) unveiled the bill on the Senate
President Trump said Thursday he has "no idea" if there are recordings of his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey. "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea … whether there are ‘tapes´ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings," Trump said in a two separate tweets Thursday. The president´s announcement caps weeks of speculation as to whether the president had kept recordings of his discussions with Comey, who he fired last month. Trump himself
A sheriff in Florida has warned citizens to avoid being a “sitting duck” by arming themselves in the wake of mass attacks around the world. While running and hiding can be a good option during some attacks, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Americans must be prepared to fight back. “If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” the sheriff told a local ABC affiliate. “Become proficient. Get a concealed firearms license and carry it. And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.” “The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” he said. “He plans
A group of at least three Republican senators are planning to openly oppose the newly-released Republican health care bill, NBC´s Chuck Todd reported Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) finally released the text of the bill Thursday after over a month of speculation. "For the past seven years, Obamacare has continued to hurt the people we represent," McConnell said on the Senate floor. "For the past seven years, Republicans have offered ideas for a better way forward. And soon, we will finally have the chance to turn the page on this failing law." But the host of "Meet the
Defiant House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she’s maintained marked unity among Democrats, fending off carping from rank-and-file members after yet more election defeats this week. Mrs. Pelosi said flatly she’s not giving up her leader’s post, and said the losses in four special congressional elections this year, which cost the party millions of dollars yet earned no gains in their House ranks, are actually a good sign. “I feel very confident in the support I have in the caucus,” the California Democrat said. She’s been under fire over the last couple days, with some of her own
Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert unloaded on the media and Obama-era holdovers at the Department of Justice on Wednesday after the FBI announced that it was treating last week’s attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen as “assault” rather than terrorism. Gohmert said that the FBI’s refusal to label the attack as terrorism indicates that there are too many officials from the previous administration in the DOJ and charged that the left-wing shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was conditioned by “hate-filled propaganda” from the media and some Democrats. (Photo) “It is absurd to state that the shooting in Alexandria last week was,
First Lady Melania Trump had all eyes on her as she stepped out in a black-laced cocktail dress for her and President Trump’s night-in with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen Pence. Melania wore her take on the Little Black Dress in a sexy Dolce & Gabbana number that was covered in sheer, lace overlay and pointed black leather stilettos. The Dolce & Gabbana dress retails for $2,995.00. Dolce & Gabbana, friends of Melania’s, have become the First Lady’s signature designers as she has worn the duo’s high Italian fashion creations more than any other designer. (Photos) Stefano
Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want to ask potential jurors in a court-martial for their views on President Trump and whether they voted for him, according to news reports Wednesday. At a pretrial hearing Wednesday, Berdahl´s lawyers submitted the questions to the judge in the case, out of concern that jurors may be swayed by negative comments Trump made in the presidential campaign about the soldier. "The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a
They have gone 0-4 in the last special elections, and they keep blaming the wrong people and coming up with the wrong reasons for their losses. Here are ten reasons why they keep losing. 1. They have broken the federal budget. We´re still $19.8 trillion in debt, and this makes people nervous. We have to be patient for the GOP to fix the problem. The Dems don´t even seem to believe that there is a problem. 2. They keep promoting the multiplier effect. That is, if the government gets bigger and bigger and keeps spending money, then the economy will
In the late 1700s, the newly independent republic of the United States was continually beset by piracy at sea from four Muslim Barbary Coast states: Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, and Morocco. The U.S., with limited military resources and staggering debts from the War for Independence, sought to establish secure routes for international commerce to spur rapid economic growth needed to build the emerging country. Yet the U.S. faced constant Ottoman attacks on its merchant ships. American and European ships venturing into the region routinely faced capture of crewmembers, who risked being held as slaves until hefty ransoms were paid. The persistent
Two articles, one in CNN and one in Breitbart. Can anyone spot the difference? From CNN: A police officer was stabbed in the back and neck Wednesday at an airport in Flint, Michigan, and the suspect is in custody and being questioned, according to authorities. The FBI said it believed the attack was an "isolated incident" and is investigating whether it was an act of terrorism. "We are aware of reports that the attacker made statements immediately prior to or while attacking the officer, but it is too early to determine the nature of these alleged statements or whether or not this
The Senate health care bill, being drafted by Republicans behind closed doors, finally came to light. The Washington Post got a draft of the legislation Wednesday afternoon, which was being passed among lobbyists and aides. The bill would repeal most of the taxes that pay for Obamacare, roll back expanded Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act, reshape its subsidies, give states wider latitude to opt out of its regulations and eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Scroll down for video (Photos) The Senate legislation would link federal insurance subsidies to income, a change from a House-passed bill that tied
Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful
On June 8, Lisa Durden, a producer, filmmaker and media commentator, arrived at Essex County College in Newark to teach her speech class. It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses. Two days before, she had appeared as a political commentator on the Fox News show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," invited to give her opinion as to why Black Lives Matter organizers held a Memorial Day event in Brooklyn for black people only. When
Republican Karen Handel staved off a furious challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a race to represent a suburban Atlanta seat in Congress, as the GOP and President Donald Trump avoided an embarrassing defeat in the most expensive U.S. House contest in history. A former Georgia secretary of state, Handel emphasized her experience and roots in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to defeat Ossoff and keep a seat that’s long been held by Republicans in GOP hands. She becomes Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.
MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest
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 Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for
Republican Karen Handel has defeated her upstart Democratic challenger in a Georgia runoff election. Handel, an experienced politician and former Secretary of State for Georgia, emerged on Tuesday night with a narrow win over 30-year-old Jon Ossoff. Incomplete returns show she is on track to receive about 53 per cent of the vote. Her narrow victory in Georgia´s 6th Congressional District allows Republicans a sigh of relief after the hotly-contested race, which is considered the most expensive in US House history. The special election was considered one of the first tests for Donald Trump´s controversial presidency, with voters given a chance to put another
(Video) - The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information. The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began,
A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’
Democrat Jon Ossoff conceded the Georgia special election runoff to Republican Karen Handel Tuesday night, even as he argued that "fight goes on" for Democrats even after their latest election defeat. "This small community in Georgia, which has become the epicenter of politics — sometimes to my chagrin — for months now, it´s had nothing to do with me, it never has," Ossoff told the crowd at his campaign´s Atlanta watch party, soon after news outlets declared Handel the winner of the pivotal special election. "It´s about you. It´s about an extraordinary community at an extraordinary moment in history." Democrats had
Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added
As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and
Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
