The similarities between Putin and Obama are many. They both conjure up fake crises to get what they want. Putin says Crimea wanted him-so he takes a piece of Ukraine. Obama said our healthcare system was broken-so he invaded one seventh of our economy and took it. Both demonize their enemies with lies, aided by a subordinate press, in hopes of stigmatizing opponents. Both use the Saul Alinsky playbook.
Putin is seeking a fourth term in 2018, and doesn't want to be too associated with Obama whose favorability poll numbers are in the 30's versus Putin's in the 70's-Putin has his career to consider.
Yep, ole Putin is running again in 2018. He said he looks forward to the voters of Russia being heard at the polls--then chuckled uncontrollably for a few minutes. I predict Putin will him win first, second and third in that race. more >>
The Obama administration has stated that they will not take a position on the White House website petition calling for the deportation of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber.
After several weeks of waiting, the White House finally released an official response on Easter weekend to the petition, which had garnered more than 278,000 signatures.
The Obamas attended an Easter service at Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., where the Rev. Dr. Derrick Harkins prayed for the first family. In his Easter greetings, the president underlined the need to love God and our neighbor as ourselves.
"Let me just say, to the first family, to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, to the first lady of the United States, and Miss Malia and Sasha, we welcome you," Harkins said during the service, according to the White House pool.
Obama returned to attend the historic Baptist church five years after he attended a service there the Sunday before his 2009 inauguration. more >>
Listening to Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama address Al Sharpton's National Action Network 16th annual convention last week, one would think Americans were living in the year 1964 not 2014. Holder pulled the race card blaming Republicans for criticizing him and Obama, merely because they're black.
Speaking prior to Obama, Holder suggested to the all black crowd that both he and the president had been treated badly by Republicans because they are black.
"It has nothing to do with me, forget that. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?" more >>
According to Obama, repealing Obamacare would increase the deficit. You're probably just as shocked as I am to hear this bold statement seeing as the public relations for Obamacare alone cost taxpayers millions of dollars more than anticipated and states such as Maryland are completely overhauling their websites-a huge waste of taxpayer dollars.
Somehow the White House continues to spin Obamacare in a positive light-as a money saver rather than a job crushing law that has caused nothing but hardship for millions of Americans.
It is important to point out that for years before Obamacare took effect, taxes had been raised on every American. Taxes have been raised so much in fact that repealing Obamcare would in fact create a deficit. However, this deficit would come at the benefit of the taxpayer because it means more money in their wallets rather than to the bureaucrats in Washington. more >>
Amid the recent epidemic of liberals behaving illiberally, some still support the liberal values of diversity, tolerance and open-mindedness.
The two most recent examples of liberals behaving illiberally were the ousting of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich and Brandeis University's withdrawal of an honorary degree for feminist scholar and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Eich was forced out of his position by same-sex marriage supporters for making a $1,000 donation in support of traditional marriage in 2008. Ali was disinvited from speaking to Brandeis students because she has argued that Islam in inherently violent. more >>
