Obama tries to claim credit for
Trump economic boom, finally
gets smacked down

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

One of the more obvious things about the Trump economy is how much better it is than the Obama economy. Yet incredibly, President Obama, as if jealously looking on at this night-and-day difference, is trying to claim credit for it. From the Washington Times: Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth.

Obama´s economy was cash for clunkers, bureaucrats on six figure salaries and 20-somethings living in mom´s basement.

Ever notice that Obama has a longstanding and nasty habit of taking credit for the work and accomplishments of others? When is he going to start taking credit (otherwise known as responsibility) for his laundry list of failures?

Both Obamas are hideously deficient, incompetent, and flagrantly jealous. He pulls this apcray, and we all remember the evil eye she would give other women - like the sidelong one she at Carla Bruni Sarkozy at the D-Day commemoration in Normandy.

You didn’t build that. Government did. Besides it’s all due to climate change and the impact Algores movies had on the world. His policies were designed to de grow the nations economy and destroy the industrial base. He was very successful at it. Now that his policies have been scrapped the results speak for themselves.

My heart goes out to Black Conservatives.

There may not be many but they must suffer terribly. They are like a medical researcher who has found the cure for the plague killing his people but no one will listen and he is hated, shunned and called a fool.

Barky & Wookie have always taken the easy road....go with the flow....shuck & jive...take the money and run....vilify all who disagree.....never stand and debate....cheap shot and shtruggle onward.

The Black Community can blame whomever they like for their troubles but Darwin wasn´t just joking around and "Fitness" in tomorrow´s world will have nothing to do with how high you can jump or how loud you can rap.

The Pimps in the greivence industry, I would suggest, are engaged in a form of genocide.

Takes "Craven" (My favorite GOT word, for those who read the 5000 pages) to a whole new, nasty level.

Some day someone will write the "Song of Barrak" and it will explain in a hundred drama filled chapters why there are no more "Black People" in America and serve as a lesson in good intentions run amuck and high ideas hyjacked by smooth criminals.

In a way Obama is correct. If not for Obama´s many road blocks put in the way of economic growth the pressure to grow wouldn´t have been as high, so when Trump removed Obama´s road blocks the release wouldn´t have been as large as we are seeing.

BO started out in front of Greek temple sets. He might end up living in a tent on a beach in Hawaii hanging out with the choom gangs.

Obama may try to claim credit for President Trump’s economic boom, but he will fail, as just about everybody with a head on their shoulders these days knows that Obama and the Democrats are the party of supporting illegal aliens, all sorts of deviant sexual rights, foreign Muslims, and welfare. The worst thing that could happen to The Obama legacy, and the Democrats, is for Trump to come up with successful policies and programs that cause business to boom and give any willing American worker a job.

The Literary Intrigues of
Putin’s Puppet Master
New York Review of Books, by Barry Yourgrau    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 1/23/2018 11:19:36     Post Reply
In the summer of 2009, a slender novel caused a literary sensation in Moscow. Centering on a poetry-loving gangster-cum-book publisher wracked by Hamletian perplexities over a possible snuff film, it unloaded a darkly absurdist, but caustically knowing, satire on the corruptions and machinations of post-Soviet Russia, with a whirligig of literary remixes and references. What really triggered the sensation, though, over Okolonolya, or Almost Zero (subtitled gangsta fiction, in English, in the Russian edition), was the identity of its author, an unknown named Natan Dubovitsky. Dubovitsky was soon suspected, courtesy of an anonymous tip from the novel’s publisher to the St.

Chelsea Manning is thumbing his nose at the law again. Laws, it seems, are for little people, not publicity hogs who get their name in the news. Or perhaps as Obama´s pardon taught him, it´s quite possible to get away with anything. In filing to run for the Senate in Maryland, as Manning did a couple weeks ago, he violates Pentagon regulations prohibiting political activity while on active duty. Manning, who is appealing his conviction for mishandling hundreds of thousands of government documents, falls into that category even while on unpaid leave, according to military lawyers cited by the Daily Caller:

The FBI has told a Senate committee that it "lost" the text messages of top counterintelligence officials attempting to undercut President Trump, conveniently during the five months when their political activity was most fervent. This calls for its own investigation. According to TheBlaze: The Department of Justice made the disclosure in a letter to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Friday, according to the Daily Caller. The letter states that FBI systems didn´t preserve text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb.

As if commercial airline flights weren´t miserable enough, now we have Homeland Security officials escorting unscreened groups of illegals onto commercial airline flights, riding alongside paying passengers. In another example of special treatment, the illegals board with all their luggage on a priority boarding basis, ahead of paying passengers. It´s the return of catch-and-release, and it´s responsible for a nearly threefold surge of illegal crossers of the U.S.´s southern border in the past few months, according to Judicial Watch.

The more than 100 million trees that died in California after being weakened by drought and insect infestations have transformed large swaths of the Sierra Nevada into browned-out tree cemeteries. In some areas more than 90 percent of trees are dead. This week a group of scientists warned in the journal BioScience that the dead trees could produce wildfires on a scale and of an intensity that California has never seen. Coming in the aftermath of the deadly and destructive fires last year both in wine country and Southern California, the warning is sobering because the scientists say they cannot even calculate

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

The latest black support numbers for President Trump are interesting but not surprising: Two new polls show President Donald Trump´s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants. The growing support from blacks – despite furious Democratic claims of racism – could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his "Buy American, Hire American" policies.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum.

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

The mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month was somber as Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Bremmer began with a show-stopping line:"If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018." The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump´s move away from global leadership, and China´s eagerness to fill the

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,
