Trump Just Revealed What He Was Doing During Obama’s Speech And It’s Pure Gold!

Published

I must confess I did not watch Obama’s speech any more than just in passing yesterday. I’m sure I had something important to do… like cleaning the cat box. I couldn’t watch him during his eight-year-long presidency and I’m sure not going to put myself through that now.

Former President Barack Obama visited The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign yesterday and spoke for 64 grueling minutes and referred to himself 102 times. That’s impressively narcissistic even for him.

The Democrats have no one charismatic enough to fire up their base except for Barack Obama. So, he hit the campaign trail with a fiery speech taking credit for all the good things Trump has done and falsely attacking the sitting president repeatedly. He said that Trump and the GOP were fueling “division and resentment.”

How did President Trump respond to this vicious onslaught? With a yawn. Lol. That’s all it deserved.

Trump revealed what he was during Obama’s speech and it’s simply pure gold. “I’m sorry, I watched but I fell asleep,” Trump teased, speaking at a political rally minutes later for GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer in Fargo, North Dakota. “I found he’s very good for sleeping.”

I can relate. I bet that line really ticked Obama off. Good times. At a rally later in the day in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for gubernatorial candidate Rep. Kristi Noem, Trump told supporters: “President Obama made a speech, now if that doesn’t get you out to vote for the midterms, nothing will.”

From Fox News:

“The back-and-forth between the sitting and former presidents sets the stage for a battle of the mega-surrogates heading into the November midterms. Trump has promised to ramp up his campaign appearances for GOP candidates and, with Obama flexing his political muscle once again, he will have a worthy competitor.

“Obama’s campaign season debut launches his midterm effort to rally Democrats to the polls and end Republicans’ grip on power in Congress. The former president warned Friday that the stakes are high and the consequences of staying on the sidelines “dire.”

“Delivering some of his toughest broadsides against the GOP since leaving office – and referring to Trump by name, something he used to avoid – Obama said there are certain “powerful and privileged” people who want to “keep us angry.”

“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”

“But speaking in Fargo, Trump dismissed Obama’s speech and mocked his claim that Trump was taking credit for a booming economy that started during the prior administration.

“I think he was trying to take credit for this incredible thing happening to our country,” he said. “I have to say to President Obama, it wasn’t him, and if the Democrats got in with their agenda … instead of having 4.2 [percent GDP growth] up, you have 4.2 down, you’d be in negative numbers.”

“He said that Obama had overseen the “weakest recovery in the history of our country.”

“This is called not a recovery, but a rocket ship,” he said in reference to the economy under his watch, as he touted his achievements. He also warned voters that Democrats “would destroy Medicare and destroy Social Security,” two things he said that Republicans would protect.

“Isn’t this more exciting than listening to President Obama?” he later asked his crowd.”

Obama also questioned Trump’s commitment to Republican conservatism, stating, “I don’t mean to pretend I’m channeling Abraham Lincoln now, but that’s not what he had in mind, I think when he helped form the Republican Party. It’s not conservative. It sure isn’t normal. It’s radical. It’s a vision that says the protection of our power and those who back us is all that matters even when it hurts the country.”

The Democrats must be running scared if they are relaunching Obama like this. He didn’t stop Trump before, he won’t stop him now either. On Saturday, the former president will stump for House Democratic candidates from California at an event in Orange County, a conservative-leaning part of California where Republicans are at risk of losing several congressional seats.

I would really like to know since when does Obama have any standing whatsoever to lecture Republicans on conservatism? But that’s what he is doing here.

“What happened to the Republican Party?” Obama said. “Its central organizing principle in foreign policy was the fight against communism, and now they’re cozying up to the former head of the KBG.” I think he has Trump confused with himself. Obama also took cheap shots over the anonymous New York Times op-ed.

Obama was at the University of Illinois to receive the Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government, an honor also bestowed upon civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and the late Sen. John McCain. I know… I’m still chuckling over the irony.

“I’m here to deliver a simple message, and that is: you need to vote because our democracy depends on it,” Obama said. I agree with Obama finally… at least mostly. Get out and vote, our Republic depends on it.

BREAKING: Trump FIRE Boss In TOP SPOT – Will Also Replace Chief Of Staff

Published

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

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to remove Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and is considering replacing chief of staff John Kelly in another shakeup of his administration, a source close to the White House said.

Trump has been mulling removing Nielsen, a Kelly protege who became the secretary at Homeland Security when he left the job to become Trump’s chief of staff, for a number of weeks, the source said.

The source cautioned Trump could still change his mind on the matter, but said he has grown weary of her in his push to harden the U.S. border with Mexico.

Trump has not decided on a candidate to replace Nielsen, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” said Tyler Houlton, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman, in response to an ABC News report about the possible staff changes.

Trump is also considering replacing Kelly, an ardent defender of Nielsen, with Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, the source said.

Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, has sought to bring more stability to the White House operation under the unpredictable Trump.

During his time as chief of staff, he and the president have had a rocky relationship, according to various news reports and Bob Woodward’s best-selling book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

If they leave, Kelly and Nielsen would join a long list of people who have been fired by Trump or resigned since he took office in January, 2017. That list includes former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was removed by the president last week.

Broke Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Breaks Into Pelosi’s Office, Starts Making BIG Demands

Published

Earlier this week, 29-year-old socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, complained about not being able to afford an apartment in Washington, D.C. until she starts collecting her new check. Not a great start when you’re headed into the big leagues and given a seat at the adults’ table. We’re supposed to trust this woman to weigh in on decisions when she can’t even handle her personal finances on the most basic level.

However, she seems to be putting her financial woes aside, to create more negative waves in Washington with an attack on fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Alexandria is clearly no fan of hers, but she also doesn’t quite understand how things work either.

I have a feeling Alexandria won’t be welcomed with open arms. She’s mentioned before she doesn’t like Pelosi. These far leftists are insane. I also don’t see this Cortez lasting long in office.

Scary to think these people are in office. Get ready for more insanity to come out of Washington.

From The Intercept:

PROTESTERS WITH THE environmental group Sunrise marched on Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s office on Tuesday. The group, made up of young people pushing for urgent action on climate change, planned to send a clear message to party leadership just one week after Democrats regained control of the House.

But this was no ordinary protest for the Sunrise activists, who typically stand on the opposite side of politicians. This time, they were joined by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is just weeks away from being sworn into office.

Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib of Michigan joined the protesters in a rally at the Spirit of Justice Park near the Capitol on Tuesday morning, but she did not continue on to Pelosi’s office. “This is the most American thing you can do,” Tlaib said of the protest. Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib also attended an event with the Sunrise activists on Monday night.

Members of the progressive political group Justice Democrats also joined the protest, which was attended by more than 150 people. “Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party leadership must get serious about the climate and our economy,” said the group’s communications director, Waleed Shahid, in a statement. “Anything less is tantamount to denying the reality of climate change. The hopeful part is that we’re ushering in a new generation of leaders into the Democratic Party who understand the urgency and will help build a movement to create the political will for bold action.”

A recent United Nations report found that catastrophic effects of climate change, some of which are already upon us, could become widespread as early as 2040. To stave off the crisis, the globe’s economy would have to be put on the equivalent of a war footing, scientists involved with the study concluded.

The protesters, including Ocasio-Cortez, are calling on Pelosi to create and give teeth to a new select committee on climate change.

The proposed committee, called the Select Committee for a Green New Deal, would be similar to something Pelosi established as House speaker in 2007, but with more authority. Back then, Pelosi created the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, and assigned her ally, then-Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who has a strong environmental record, to chair it. The committee held dozens of hearings over the course of four years, until the tea party-led Congress, which took over in 2010, mothballed it. (The Republicans also got rid of the renewable plates and utensils Pelosi had introduced and replaced them with Styrofoam.)

The problem with that committee, Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise activists argue, was that it wasn’t funded well enough and didn’t have the true ability to write legislation. In 2009, Pelosi pushed through cap-and-trade legislation, meant to reduce emissions. But even that package moved largely through the Energy and Commerce Committee — not the select committee Pelosi had created. Markey, who chaired a subcommittee under Energy and Commerce, played a lead role in pushing through the bill, which became known as the Waxman-Markey bill, but it never came to a floor vote in the Senate. Some activists argued that it wasn’t robust enough to meet the threat of climate change, while defenders argued it was the best the chamber could do — and, as it turned out, it was far better than the Senate could do.

Since then, the global climate situation has only deteriorated, with once-in-a-century storms taking place with harrowing frequency, and drought conditions sparking war and mass migration. Dozens of people have died in still-raging fires in California that are the deadliest in the state’s modern history, and hundreds more are missing. “Resting on our laurels won’t bring back the 42 lives lost,” said Sunrise activist Varshini Prakash, referring to the deaths in California.

The proposed committee would, among other things, establish a 10-year plan to transition the U.S. economy to become carbon neutral, according to draft legislation that the activists presented to Pelosi’s office. The activists are also pushing Democratic leaders to reject campaign contributions from fossil fuel industry groups. “We need every person who is going to claim the mantle of Democratic leadership to take the no fossil fuel money pledge,” Prakash said at the sit-in outside Pelosi’s office.

Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to join the protesters and march on her own House leader sets a tone of urgency and combativeness that is rare on Capitol Hill. Walking into the Cannon House Office Building, she told The Intercept something new had to be tried. “The way things are done has not been getting results. We have to try new methods,” she said.

Pelosi may need Ocasio-Cortez’s support to win a second shot at the speakership. The California Democrat can only lose roughly 20 votes on the House floor, and already at least 10 Democrats, largely moderates and conservatives, have said they will not back her. Pelosi has expressed “100 percent” confidence that she’ll be elected speaker.
