Former President Barack Obama announced Wednesday morning that the Obama Foundation will hold a two-day "immersive event" in Chicago featuring hundreds of leaders from around the world later this year. The Obama Foundation Summit is being billed as an event to "exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world." The foundation tweeted out the announcement with a short one-minute clip and a link to more details. (Snip) The site says it is inviting people from around the world to attend the summit but is also saving spots for some
Comments: Triple mega barf alert! Whatever you do don´t watch the video of that pathetic, lisping radical hack. I don´t know what possessed me to do so and could only make it through about a minute of his bilge. Why is it necessary for people from all over the world to attend? I guess he´s following the Hillary Clinton school of how to get donations from all over the world. The question is what can he possibly offer them now that he is out of power.
Well well well, I guess Obama learned from The Clintons. You set up a "foundation" and in a year or so, you´re a multi-millionaire! You get donors from all over the world who will hand over Thousands or Millions and expect you to use your "connections" to get them what they´re asking for! Trump will never be able to Drain the Swamp! It´s too ingrained for anyone to touch it!
If Obama´s brain were propotionate in size to his ego, he would be as smart as Hillary thinks she is. On the other hand, if his ego were proportionate in size to his brain, he would apologize daily to the American people.
Someone needs to make sure photos and names are taken of every person participating and the watch transfer of money. Nice of Barry to hand us an updated enemies list. All his post-white House traveling....setting up the payoff accounts..
Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results. No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment. And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made. When searching for a media outlet that leans right, like The Daily Caller (TheDC), Google gives users details on the sidebar, including what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a section titled “Reviewed Claims.” Vox, and other left-wing outlets
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence members gained access to all Department of Justice and FBI documents it possesses on the Trump dossier, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The committee was able to review Friday all FBI and DOJ documents on the Trump dossier, former MI-6 British agent Christopher Steele who authored the dossier, and Fusion GPS, the political opposition firm that hired Steele. DOJ also provided any Obama administration applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court based on the dossier, which could approve the surveillance of the Trump transition team or Trump associates, according to a source with
The British ex-spy who authored a dossier of allegations against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump was told the FBI had someone inside Trump’s network providing agents with information, according to a newly released transcript of a congressional interview. (Snip) It was released by the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. That decision marks the most serious break yet in the cooperative relationship she has had with the Republican chairman of the committee, Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).

Huma Abedin backed up copies of her emails with Hillary Clinton to her pervert husband Anthony Weiner´s laptop, DailyMail.com can disclose - conflicting with her account to the FBI and in court that she did not preserve the conversations. An examination by DailyMail.com of emails released by the State Department shows that backup copies of many of Abedin´s work-related messages with Clinton were created in the dates after Clinton left the State Department in early 2013. The emails, released at the end of December, show that they had been put on Weiner´s laptop by a BlackBerry archiving program. A tech
Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether leaders of the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks, prompted in part by text messages amongst senior FBI officials mentioning specific reporters, news organizations and articles. In one exchange, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page engaged in a series of texts shortly before Election Day 2016 suggesting they knew in advance about a Wall Street Journal article and would need to feign stumbling onto the story so it could be shared with colleagues. “Article is out, but hidden behind paywall
Last week, Breitbart chief and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon became THE focus of political media when excerpts from Michael Wolff’s Trump tell-all were published. (Snip) Bannon told Axios on Sunday that he was sorry for his comments about the president’s son. “I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president’s historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency,” the statement to Axios said. He also heaped praise upon Trump Jr., calling him “both a patriot and a good man,” adding that the Trump scion “has
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — who has been the target of President Trump and Republicans’ ire in recent weeks on charges of political bias — had no conflict of interest during the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according to his agency. Internal FBI documents published on the bureau’s website Friday show that McCabe’s oversight role in the Clinton probe began only in February 2016 when he assumed his role as deputy director — three months after his wife Jill McCabe lost her bid for a Virginia state Senate seat as a Democrat. Trump and
The bank for Fusion GPS gave the House Intelligence Committee dozens of the opposition research firm’s financial records on Friday, a federal judge said. The exchange puts an end to a dramatic court fight over the Trump dossier firm’s bank records, which the House panel sought through a subpoena issued in October. Judge Richard Leon on Thursday ruled against Fusion GPS which had asked for a temporary restraining order to prevent its bank, TD Bank, from complying with the committee’s subpoena. But Leon, a George W. Bush appointee, rejected all of Fusion’s arguments against complying with the subpoena.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said Thursday he doesn’t believe there’s a need for his committee to meet with former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, despite new comments from Bannon about a summer 2016 meeting between Trump campaign members and a Russian lawyer. “I’m not sure what an individual who wants to talk about a meeting that he didn’t attend would be able to share about that meeting,” Burr told CNN. On Wednesday, quotes from Bannon surfaced in excerpts from author Michael Wolff’s upcoming book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” In the excerpts, Bannon
California is already flouting federal immigration law with its “sanctuary” status. Now it’s also ignoring the most American of laws — the First Amendment — prosecuting a man simply for posting five anti-Muslim messages to Facebook. The hapless defendant is 41-year-old Mark Feigin, who expressed his opinions at the Islamic Center of Southern California’s (ICSC) Facebook page in 2016. Feigin is certainly an acerbic, acid-tongued, foul-mouthed fellow, and he admits to sending the messages. But while many may not like their substance and/or style, they’re clearly an example of constitutionally protected speech. They are as follows, as presented by the
Two top Senate Republicans announced Friday that they have officially requested the Justice Department open a criminal investigation into Christopher Steele, the key figure in the anti-Trump dossier that roiled the 2016 election. Sens. Charles E. Grassley and Lindsey Graham said Mr. Steele appears to have misled the FBI in trying to push the contents of the dossier, which the two senators said violates federal law. “I don’t take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that
NBC network and celebrities dubbed Oprah Winfrey “our future president” following her appearance at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards and her speech referencing civil rights and the #MeToo campaign that highlighted rampant sexual harassment. The iconic talk show host was the subject of a joke by the award’s host Seth Meyers who taunted her to run for U.S. president. “In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Mayers said. “Some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I
Oprah Winfrey´s Golden Globes speech Sunday night inspired calls for her to run for president in 2020, and on Monday, sources confirmed she is serious about such an endeavor. One photo might have the ability to sink her candidacy, however. Winfrey posed while kissing the notorious Harvey Weinstein. (Weinstein has been credibly accused by more than 50 women of using his position in Hollywood to force them to have sex with him in order to help their careers.) (Snip) Winfrey´s Golden Globes speech actually underscores the significance of this photo and her time working with Weinstein in Hollywood. Winfrey dressed in black,
ATLANTA (AP) — The NAACP wants to see white towels amid the crimson, white, red and black worn by fans to send a message to President Donald Trump during the national college football championship in Atlanta. Atlanta’s NAACP chapter said on its Facebook page that it wants fans inside the stadium for the College Football Playoff title game to wave white towels ”simulating a blizzard.” It’s one of several anti-Trump protests planned as Trump visits Atlanta on Monday night to attend the showdown between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.The NAACP also is urging people to hold anti-Trump
During a rousing nine-minute address, the talk show host touched on women’s rights, the importance of a free press and what it meant to be the first black woman to receive the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award. Before receiving a standing ovation, she closed with the promise “a new day is on the horizon”, adding fuel to rumours the entertainment mogul could have her eyes on the White House. (Snip) In response to her remarks, social media users were quick to support a possible presidential bid by the 63-year-old with many seeing her comments has an opening salvo to a
The legalization of marijuana became a hot topic in the past week. First, recreational use of the drug became legal in California at the start of 2018. Next, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would allow U.S. attorneys to decide whether to enforce federal laws outlawing the use and sale of pot in states that have legalized the drug. Sessions ended an Obama administration policy that discouraged federal prosecutors from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that allow the drug’s medical or recreational use. It’s not clear yet what impact the attorney general’s action will have. As a physician, my doctoring knowledge
Some Democratic lawmakers are renewing their campaign this week of questioning President Trump’s mental fitness for office, aided by a psychiatrist who is drawing ethics rebukes from her peers for giving opinions about the president without having examined him.Lawmakers will gather for dinner Wednesday night at the Washington home of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Connecticut Democrat, in a “salon-like” setting to hear from Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist who believes Mr. Trump is “dangerous” and requires a mental-capacity exam.DeLauro spokesman Will Serio confirmed the planned dinner meeting but couldn’t say how many lawmakers are expected to
Clinton Scandals: As the media focus on Donald Trump´s mental condition and whether he can be kicked out of office using the 25th Amendment, something far more significant is taking place: Former slam-dunk-future-first-woman-president Hillary Clinton, after avoiding any serious scrutiny for her misconduct while secretary of state, now sits at the center of a growing number of investigations — any of which might lead to a special counsel and criminal charges. No doubt, Democrats, who with the leftist media allies have ginned up bogus charges of Russian collusion against Donald Trump, would like the Clinton investigations to go away. But
David Cameron thought Barack Obama was one of the ´most narcissistic, self-absorbed people´ he had ever dealt with, his former strategy guru has claimed. While in office the two leaders had a cosy bromance and were pictured high-fiving and playing rounds of golf and ping pong together. But Steve Hilton tore into Mr Obama for thinking he was ´smarter´ than everyone else in the room. And he claimed that his old boss Mr Cameron would get wound up by the ex President´s self absorption. He said: ´My old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic,
“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said her jet-setting friends are embarrassed to be Americans while discussing if there was any reason for optimism in the Trump era on Monday.“I had some friends that went to Paris over the holiday… and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski said.The MSNBC star´s co-host and fiancé, Joe Scarborough, perhaps realizing she wasn’t speaking to the average American, tried to intervene with a joke, asking, and “Paris, Texas right?”“Paris, France,” she responded. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.”Brzezinski said her friends “didn’t even
ALBANY – Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo thinks he has a way to end run President Trump. If the president´s federal tax overhaul plan is going to hit thousands of New Yorkers with higher tax bills, then New York will circumvent Washington by rewriting part of its complex tax code, Cuomo reasons. But it’s not so easy. The basic premise of the still-evolving state plan, vaguely unveiled during Cuomo’s State of the State speech last week, is to sharply reduce the state’s reliance on income taxes that employees pay by starting a new, statewide payroll tax that employers would pay. It’s
Wow. Follow up to THIS STORY – In a stunning rebuke to federal prosecutors a federal court judge has thrown out the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy “with prejudice”. Bundy and his sons cannot be retried, and will walk free. (Photo) In order for a federal judge to completely dismiss a case of this significance indicates the court has found serious and compelling evidence of “gross misconduct” on the part of the prosecuting team. LAS VEGAS — Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a militia member will not face a retrial on charges that they led an
President Trump is spending an increasing amount of his day on social media and watching television, which his schedule has dubbed officially as ´executive time´ - and his days in the Oval Office don´t actually begin in earnest until 11 a.m. each day, a report from Axios stated. The report states that Trump´s day begins at 8 a.m., but that he conducts business from his private residence in the White House rather than the Oval Office. This compares to George W. Bush, who often began his official day in the West Wing at 6:45 a.m. In addition, Trump apparently shrunk his official
