Obama Helps Trump — He Just Set Fire To Democrat Chances For 2018 Midterms

Published

on

Former President Obama has set out on the campaign trail to help Democrats win seats in November. But not so fast.

Is he really helping the Democrats or is he helping us remember why Trump is now our President. In a speech at the University of Illinois Obama said that the people that voted for Trump were “the powerful and the privileged.” But wait, is that who lives in small towns of Ohio and Pennsylvania who overwhelmingly voted for President Trump.

These are the same tactics that lost the presidency for Hillary Clinton. If your running as a Democrat you might not what Obama or Hillary on your team.

President Obama is mighty confused.

In a fiery campaign speech at the University of Illinois, the former president suggested that Donald Trump was elected in 2016 by the “powerful and the privileged.” He also railed at voters for failing to show up, and for permitting such a damaging “threat to our democracy.”

But here’s the truth: it wasn’t the powerful elites that voted for Donald Trump in Michigan and Ohio. It was blue collar workers who felt they had been overlooked by Obama and by Democrats. Who were offended by the headlong rush into identity politics, and by policies that protected everything but their jobs and their livelihoods.

It was voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania, who had seen local industries move overseas, and it was voters in Michigan, who were aggrieved that Hillary Clinton took their votes for granted.

The election in 2016 was not unique. Americans also rebuked the president in 2010, when Democrats lost 63 seats in the House – one of the worst pummelings in modern times — and again in 2012, when Republicans took over the Senate. Voters also pushed back by electing an unprecedented number of GOP candidates in state legislatures and governors’ mansions while Obama occupied the White House.

Were those elections the work of lobbyists and other nefarious interests? No, those elections were a wake-up call that Obama and his party failed to heed. They were so busy slicing and dicing the population into groups that could be won over by targeted policies, they forgot to worry about the country overall.

President Obama is angry that President Trump is getting credit for the booming economy; he figures he got the ball rolling. He is correct that his administration managed to stave off a depression but for years, even as voters listed jobs and the economy as their number one concerns, Obama’s focus was elsewhere.

Nothing better highlights his misguided ambitions and priorities than the Paris Climate accord. Obama embraced that toothless celebration of global cooperation even though it would hobble the U.S. economy and its powerhouse energy industries while enabling the continued expansion of China, by far the world’s biggest carbon emitter.

Similarly, Obama’s enthusiasm for the Trans Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement judged by the World Bank as not beneficial to the U.S., reflected his appetite for legacy and indifference to putting America first, as President Trump might say.

Under President Trump, the economic expansion, already long in the tooth, has accelerated. There is no denying that his election ushered in an immediate surge in business optimism, which has kicked off a steady rise in capital investment, key to productivity and wage gains.

Democrats charge that the corporate tax cuts have benefited only the wealthy, but they know better. Consumer spending growth is being driven not only by surging optimism but also by rising incomes. Though the average hourly wage has gone up only slightly faster than inflation, households have also benefited from lower taxes, the opportunity to trade up to a better job and from the huge number of bonuses handed out by companies in celebration of lower corporate taxes.

The most recent jobs report provides a useful snapshot of what is happening. Wages rose 2.9 percent year-over-year, the fastest pace in 9 years. Economists suggest that the annualized rate going forward might reach 3 percent -3.5 percent, the best in years.

As impressive as the top-line number is, the rise in manufacturing jobs over the past year is even better news. President Obama mocked President Trump’s promise to bring back manufacturing jobs during the 2016 campaign, asking “What magic wand do you have?”

But it didn’t take magic; it took business managers knowing the government was working with them and not against them, that they were not likely to be shut down by some ill-advised regulation, and that our tax regime would no longer put them at a disadvantage. Through July, we had added 327,000 manufacturing jobs over the past year, the most in a 12-month period since 1995. Those are “good-paying” jobs, as Hillary Clinton might have said.

The surging economy is alarming to Democrats eager to retake the House of Representatives in November. To counter the good economic news, liberals have resorted to scare tactics, promising, for instance, that elevating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court will mean the end of Roe v. Wade, greater access to guns, dirtier air and increasing racism.

In his speech, Obama warns that Republicans are “tapping into America’s dark history of racial and ethnic and religious division.”

But then he has the temerity to rail about the “politics of fear and resentment;” one wonders whose politics he is talking about. He complains that “demagogues promise simple fixes to complex problems,” but it is his party that wants the government to provide free health care to everybody and to guarantee everyone a job. Those are simple fixes, but they are also unworkable and costly enough to bankrupt the nation.

Above all else, President Obama is angry. President Trump has systematically chipped away at his legacy, taking us out of the TPP, the Paris Climate Accord and the insufficient Iran nuclear deal and removing misguided regulations like the Clean Power Act and the guidance on how colleges should deal with campus sexual assault.

Trump isn’t doing this out of spite, but rather because these were bad policies. For the most part, they were also unpopular policies. That’s why voters rose up to protest in 2010, 2012 and 2016. Americans may have let Obama down in those elections, as he suggests, but they didn’t let the country down.

Obama says the upcoming election is the most important in his lifetime; he may be right. Democrats are keen to undo the progress we have made over the past year, and they could. Let us hope voters won’t give them the chance.

It’s time for Democrats to get a clue. The people of America want to have good paying jobs and a thriving economy. President Obama is completely out of touch with the people.

In his speech he questioned how Trump would bring back manufacturing, “I mean do you have a magic wand or something?”

Well Barack, yes he does.

BREAKING: Justice Department Preparing To PROSECUTE Assange – About To Get UGLY

Published

on

...

* By

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Governor Palin:

It is being reported that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be prosecuted by the United States Justice Department due to his influence and the influence of WikiLeaks in releasing classified or otherwise pertinent national security information.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a potential trial would happen in an American courtroom, although the potential charges brought against Assange were not specified.

From the Daily Caller:

The 47-year-old Australian national is living under asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

The Trump DOJ has considered charging Assange with crimes related to Wikileaks’ disclosures of classified cables stolen by ex-Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning. Assange could also face charges related to the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Wikileaks published the pilfered documents before the 2016 presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 Russian intelligence agents with hacking the documents and releasing them through Wikileaks.

Some people suspected Assange received the stolen information from Russian sources, though he denied the claim.

Reuters reports the sealed indictment against Assange may have been released accidentally:

The document, which prosecutors say was filed by mistake, asks a judge to seal documents in a criminal case unrelated to Assange, and carries markings indicating it was originally filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia in August.

A source familiar with the matter said the document was initially sealed but unsealed this week for reasons that are unclear at the moment.

And:

U.S. officials had no comment on the disclosure in the document about a sealed indictment of Assange, the charges facing whom are unclear.

The document is part of an unrelated criminal case involving a 29-year-old man charged with enticing a 15-year-old girl. In that case, the judge wrote in a detention memo that the defendant, Seitu Sulayman Kokayi, “has had a substantial interest in terrorist acts.”

“The court filing was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing,” said Joshua Stueve, the prosecutors’ office spokesman.

Reuters added that anything “short of sealing will not adequately protect the needs of law enforcement at this time because, due to the sophistication of the defendant, and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged,” the document said.

And, per the report: “The complaint, supporting affidavit, and arrest warrant, as well as this motion and the proposed order, would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter.”

Here’s even more on the case, via the Wall Street Journal:

An indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller that portrayed WikiLeaks as a tool of Russian intelligence for releasing thousands of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 presidential campaign has made it more difficult for Mr. Assange to mount a defense as a journalist. Public opinion of Mr. Assange in the U.S. has dropped since the campaign.

Prosecutors have considered publicly indicting Mr. Assange to try to trigger his removal from the embassy, the people said. A detailed explanation of the evidence against Mr. Assange could give Ecuadorean authorities a reason to turn him over, they said.

The exact charges the Justice Department might pursue remain unclear, but they may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.

Angry Citizens Don’t Want Invader Caravan In Their Town – Serve Them Texas Sized Justice!

Published

* By

The scouting party for the first migrant caravan has now arrived at the US-Mexican border. They are camped out on the beach on the Mexican side. Somewhere between 750 and 900 illegal aliens are now awaiting the larger caravan before pushing for entry into the US. The Mexican government has opened a temporary shelter for them.

This group is in Playas de Tijuana, which is an upscale neighborhood. The residents there don’t want them there and flatly told them to get out. The angry residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved flags. They got into fights with the migrants as well. The police pretty much just watched. But they are cool with the invaders crossing into the US.

Sarah Palin has more on this story:

Over the last week, hundreds of members of the migrant caravan arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border, forming an encampment on the beach on the Mexican side of the border. These members joined the several hundred which were already there—about 750 in total— waiting for the remainder of the group before progressing any further.

In an effort to help, the Mexican government opened a temporary shelter for the caravan so they would not have to stay on the beach. Because the new housing option could only fit about 360 migrants on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court, the caravan refused to leave their post on the beach. The shelters also reportedly had a curfew and some of the migrants at the beach referred to the shelters as “jails.”

Desert Sun reports a fight then broke out between the migrants and a group of 300 local residents eager to see the migrants leave their community.

The local residents were from Playas de Tijuana, an upscale neighborhood, who confronted the migrants and demanded they leave; “By 8:30 p.m., hundreds of residents and migrants had congregated by the beach, with local residents demanding the immigrants leave the public space at the beach,” Desert Sun reports.

“This is not an appropriate place for them,” one local resident said, per the report. “There are appropriate places for them.”

And:

During a confrontation that lasted more than three hours, area residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved Mexican flags. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” each time a bus transporting migrants left the beach for the temporary shelter. Mostly women and children went to the shelters, while young men from the caravan said they were determined to stay together at the beach and await the estimated 2,000 more caravan members on their way to Tijuana.

Pushing, shoving, kicking and a couple of blows broke out between masses of residents and migrants, illuminated by the crescent moon and mobile light towers, set up by authorities on the beach on the U.S. side of the border. More than three dozen municipal and federal police watched, separating people and trying to prevent the situation from devolving into fistfights and chaos.

After midnight, residents assaulted journalists, injuring at least three, according to reporters on the scene.

Continued:

The conflict was foreshadowed earlier in the day at the beach. By the afternoon, two large groups of migrants – a total of about 750 people – had arrived in Tijuana. The city’s migrant shelters had limited space when the caravan arrived. A large portion of the migrants said they didn’t want to be separated, opting instead to sleep at the beach.

On Wednesday evening, city and state officials announced they were opening a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex, where 360 migrants could sleep on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court. They started offering buses from the beach to the shelter around 6 p.m.

By Thursday, the migrants had left the beach and joined hundreds of caravan members at a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex. The complex has room for 3,000 people to sleep on thin mattresses on the floor of an indoor basketball court, in large, communal tents and in individual camping tents, according to a local official.

After the incident, Francisco Rueda Gómez, Baja California secretary-general, said: “The message to the migrant population is very clear. We are providing them with humanitarian support, health care, and food, however the need to take into consideration the rules of the shelters so they can coexist in harmony with the local population.”
