Bernie Sanders disagrees with Jesus

Originally posted at American Thinker

In the Gospel of John, Chapter 3, verse 18, Jesus tells the Pharisee Nicodemus, “Whoever believes in [the Son] is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

Former presidential candidate and junior senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders doesn’t share Jesus’s point of view and is peeved because Russell T. Vought, Donald Trump’s nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), does.

In a 2016 article entitled “Wheaton College and the Preservation of Theological Clarity,” Vought expressed the opinion that the Christian college was justified in firing their first female African-American tenured professor, Larycia Hawkins, for sympathizing with Islam and for posing on Facebook dressed in a hijab.

In defense of Wheaton’s decision, Vought wrote that “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned.”

At Vought’s Senate Budget Committee confirmation hearing, during introductory remarks, a visibly annoyed Sanders directed his comments toward the nominee while pontificating about “[t]his country, since its inception, [having] struggled, sometimes with great pain, to overcome discrimination of all forms.”  Sanders stressed, “We must not go backward.”

Sorry, but Bernie the Socialist is the last person who should be sermonizing about the inception of a nation whose foundational philosophies are diametrically opposed to everything he espouses.

Moreover, rather than refer to Article VI, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution as his guide, which says that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” Bernie chose instead to “overcome… all forms of discrimination” by verbally scourging a Christian.

For denying that God is government and that salvation comes from the state, Vought probably comes off to intolerant Sanders as a political heretic.  Meanwhile, despite the Quran (3:56) saying, “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter,” Bernie continues to support Minnesota Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to head the DNC.

Sounding like Pontius Pilate interrogating Jesus, the liberal senator applied a religious litmus test to the president’s nominee by challenging Vought’s belief in basic Christian theology, asking:

I don’t know how many Muslims there are in America, I really don’t know, probably a couple million. Are you suggesting that all of those people stand condemned? What about Jews? Do they stand condemned too?

Sanders continued probing: “Do you believe that statement is Islamophobic?”  Vought replied, “Absolutely not, Senator.  I’m a Christian, and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith.”

Bernie is a millionaire socialist who publicly embraces sharing the wealth while privately practicing the religion of Marxism by vacationing in a $600,000 summer home.  That’s why Vought’s unwavering adherence to a “set of principles” is hard for Bernie to grasp.

In an attempt to defend his position, Vought said, “As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect, regardless of their religious beliefs.”

The irony here is that Vought was explaining his belief to a pro-abortion advocate who demands a standard from Vought on behalf of Muslims that the religion of liberalism denies the unborn.

However, based on Bernie’s boorishness, apparently, liberals are certified to be disrespectful toward anyone who disagrees with progressivism.  That authorization may be why Sanders felt comfortable interrupting Vought to say, “And do you think your statement that you put in that publication… do you think that’s respectful of other religions?”

Vought answered that he wrote the post as an alumnus of Wheaton College, which “has a statement of faith that speaks clearly with regard to the centrality of Jesus Christ in salvation.”

In response, Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) chimed in and laid bare the left’s hypocrisy concerning truth being relative when he admonished Bernie by saying: “I hope that we are not questioning the faith of others, and how they interpret their faith to themselves.”

Then, by chastising Vought for being a biblical purist, versus a vacillator like himself, Democrat senator from Maryland Chris Van Hollen exposed the schizophrenic left’s truth-being-relative hypocrisy even more.  The Maryland senator attested that “I’m a Christian, but part of being a Christian, in my view, is recognizing that there are lots of ways that people can pursue their God.”

If what Chris “in my view” Van Hollen says is true, then Vought’s interpretation of the Bible, regardless of how repugnant it is to Mr. Sanders, shouldn’t be a problem – should it?

On behalf of the senator, following the contentious hearing, a spokesperson delivered the following statement:

In a democratic society, founded on the principle of religious freedom, we can all disagree over issues, but racism and bigotry – condemning an entire group of people because of their faith – cannot be part of any public policy.

The nomination of a candidate like Vought, “who has expressed such strong Islamaphobic language,” the statement said, “is simply unacceptable.”

Suffice it to say that our nation’s founding principle of religious freedom did not equate tolerance with acceptance of things like atheism, Native American shamanism, paganism, or “Mahometanism.”  In fact, in 1779, George Washington delivered a speech that expressed to Delaware Indian chiefs his theological convictions:

You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention.

Therefore, if George Washington were running for deputy director of the OMB, Bernie Sanders would accuse him of being a phobic-racist-bigot and then say, “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about.  I will vote no.”

 

Kathy Griffin blames the victim

Originally posted at American Thinker

Liberal comedienne Kathy Griffin abhors Donald Trump.  To make that point, the D-list provocateur decided to rabble-rouse a bit by hiring an edgy photojournalist to take pictures of her holding a likeness of the commander-in-chief’s severed head.

When Donald Trump, the object of her harassment, chose to express his opinion about Griffin’s twisted publicity stunt, the comic responded by accusing the victim of misogyny.  Kathy Griffin made a threat against the president, and now, after suffering the consequences of a joke gone badly, the liberal woman is looking for an excuse to blame the victim.

In other words, Kathy Griffin slept with the devil, and now she wants to abort the spawn she’s conceived by saying she was a victim of political rape.

At a highly publicized press conference, Kathy Griffin, the daughter of a white man, pulled the pink pussy hat card by accusing “a bunch of white guys [of] trying to silence [her].”  Griffin maintained that if she were a “white man” (like Planned Parenthood executives), she’d be able to laugh about decapitated bodies and no one would care.

Ms. Griffin’s defense for paying photographic homage to a terrorist group was to admit that she’s “[n]ot good at being appropriate.”

For that matter, neither is ISIS!

That’s why, unlike her mentors, rather than have the courage of her convictions, Griffin chose to indict “[t]he president and his grown children and the first lady [for] personally trying to ruin [her] life forever.”

Griffin saying Donald Trump is a “bully” for reacting negatively to being threatened with decapitation is like Hillary Clinton telling anyone who will listen – for $250K a pop – that Putin and Macedonia cost her the election.

Wait!  It gets better.

At the press conference, Kathy Griffin’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, the daughter of famous sexual harassment bottom-feeder, Gloria Allred, sneered when asked about the report that young Barron Trump was upset when he saw the gory image of his father.  Bloom said, “We don’t know that.  You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false.”

So, according to Lisa Bloom, Kathy Griffin’s beheading stunt is about Trump lying?

How can people with the imagination to dream up Trump being in cahoots with the Russians scoff at the idea that a blood-drenched replica of his dad’s head would spook an 11-year-old boy?

Notwithstanding the irreverent disregard for children, how does Kathy Griffin, a woman who regularly shills for the #shoutyourabortion crowd, have the audacity to appear at a press conference whimpering like an infant because she’s hurt and frightened?

Kathy Griffin attempted, albeit poorly, to be a firebrand, but when the fire turned around and branded her on the rear end, she crumbled into a sniveling mound of “poor me” – which proves that liberals sure can dish out the excruciating pain.  However, when it’s their turn to suffer the consequences of their own actions, such disher-outers can’t take even a smidgeon of what they impose on the defenseless.

Kathy Griffin loves to wave the flag for the right to dismember unborn babies but cries when someone says or does something that makes her feel bad?  Kathy’s reaction can be likened to an executioner complaining because he got a splinter from gripping the wooden handle of his ax.

Nonetheless, in addition to being just plain loathsome, Griffin told gullible reporters that the bloody head was her creative reaction to the comment Trump made to Megyn Kelly about “blood coming out of her wherever.”  Does Kathy “CNN” Griffin really expect the “what do we look stupid” public to believe that her left-wing photo-shoot paid homage to a former Fox News diva?

Unsure about what she meant when she mentioned her “career,” Griffin told the press that she fanaticized about decapitating President Trump because he “broke her.”  More appropriately, this little sideshow may be more about Kathy not wanting to end up broke than it is about Donald Trump “breaking her.”

Either way, since threatening the life of a sitting president, Kathy Griffin says she has received “detailed and specific” death threats from someone other than herself.  One such blow came from CNN, who exterminated her New Year’s Eve spot with Anderson Cooper, and another came in the form of pooping stool Squatty Potty dumping Kathy’s gig.

As a result of her uncontrollable urge to present decapitation imagery, Griffin is now despondent because, like a corpse without a head, she doesn’t expect her sorry excuse for a career to recover.

Then again, maybe the Kathy Griffin press conference was just the comedienne’s way of doing what she does best when she swears, “I just want to make people laugh.”

After all, it is kind of funny to hear that holding up a severed head made “everyone turn on her.”  It is also amusing when a joker, who built her career on making vile sexual references, refers to Donald Trump with a double entendre such as, “I am not laying [sic] down for this guy.”

Better than that, how about a person currently under investigation by the Secret Service concluding that “[t]hey are using me as the shining object so no one talks about his FBI investigation”?

After the mock decapitation of a man whose style is “frankly an acquired taste,” who wouldn’t giggle hearing the one who performed the amputation defend the indefensible by admitting, “I am barely an acquired taste”?

Griffin’s justification for her behavior is that she was just being herself?  Isn’t that exactly what Trump is guilty of – being himself?  And so an admitted inappropriate entertainer takes a photo holding the head of someone a lot like herself?

After standing by the apology she felt she didn’t need to make, Griffin said of Trump, “I am going to make fun of him more now.”

With that in mind, maybe next, just for laughs, Kathy Griffin will star in a video displaying President Donald J. Trump tied to log headed for a buzz saw.  Then, instead of taking responsibility for pretending to assassinate the president a second time, Kathy Griffin can inspire sympathy by claiming she is “broken” over Trump leaving the Paris Accord.

OBAMA: Touring The World For The Praise He Craves

Originally posted at Clash Daily

Based on a history of verifiable narcissism, it’s probably fair to speculate that the 44th president’s impetus to hog the limelight is deeply rooted in his inability to deal with the rejection he’s been plagued with since Donald Trump was elected.

With that in mind, Obama’s ailing self-image has the best chance of accessing the balm of approval amongst friends. That’s why, just like he did during his presidency when travelling to Muslim countries to exalt Islam, Obama gravitates toward countries whose political viewpoint aligns with his own.

To soothe his ego, Barack seeks out choirs to preach to and audiences who believe he knows best. Apparently, the former president imagines his own legacy is exalted by insults, manipulating opinion, demanding worship, and disputing everything the current president says.

Obama’s pursuit of relevancy started in Milan Italy, at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit. It was there that the socialistic sage contributed to the event by planting seeds of discord and chipping away at Trump’s reputation. Obama’s advice to the agreeable was to vote for candidates who think like himself, lest “[They] get the politicians [they] deserve.”

Next, he was off to Germany.

At Brandenburg Gate “dear Barack” met up with the woman he spied on, Angela Merkel. In the company of like-minded colleagues, Barry soaked his wounded ego in the applause of social welfare devotees, globalists, refugees, and terrorists who took a break from raping and pillaging to cheer on a friend.

From there Barack headed north to Scotland. Instead of showing solidarity by golfing at Trump International Gold Links in Balmedie, Obama displayed his scrawny legs at the Old Course at St Andrews. Then, at a charity event attended by Trump-haters like First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, author JK Rowling and musician Annie Lennox, Obama assured a room full of fellow socialists that Scotland “has a lot to offer the world.”

Obama’s most recent seditious stop was closer to home.

To the delight of an audience of 6,000 Canadian enthusiasts, without uttering his name, the ex-president attempted to damage the integrity of the current president.

Rather than furthering North American unity, at an event hosted by the Montreal Board of Trade, Obama, whose politics exclude anyone who disagrees with him, expressed concern about Trump’s “extreme nationalism and xenophobia and politics of us-versus-them.”

To establish himself as the only person qualified enough to lead a divided world, Obama used the same language he used when community organizing a nation he worked hard to divide.

Warning Canadians to guard against fear and uncertainty, the former POTUS suggested Trump “because of fear and uncertainty” was willing to “violate our principals.”

By “our” Obama meant those who agree with Obama.

Then, to elevate the “Hope and Change” brand, America’s most disruptive forward-thinker told the audience in Montreal that “In times of disruption we may go backward instead of forward. We’re going to have to replace fear with hope.”

Leaving out the alternative facts, the guy who swore Americans could keep their doctor and that Benghazi resulted from a Youtube video said:

” And we’re in an environment where we are only accepting information that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the facts that we receive. And evidence and reason and logic.

Wasn’t it Barack Obama who recommended that “… it is time to focus on nation-building here at home”? Now he slams the “America first” mentality by suggesting, “We have to help other countries with their own development?”

By portraying the current commander in chief as a man in “a search for certainty and control,” the former POTUS implied that, rather than establish American exceptionalism, via “isolationism or nationalism,” Trump seeks to “roll back rights.”

By mentioning “communities and tribes” and by implying that Trump is in the process of convincing Americans to “retreat from obligations beyond our borders”, to steer the discussion, Obama instilled the sort of fear he supposedly rejects.

Getting applause from those who want anti-democratic global forces to control the planet must have made the irrelevant one feel relevant. Obama even argued that if globalists are not in control, the result could be “intolerance and tribalism and organizing … along ethnic lines.”

Aren’t “intolerance and tribalism and organizing … along ethnic lines” exactly the sort of divisions Obama generated during his tenure as president?

Tipping his community organizer hand, Obama, whose agenda furthered itself with disruption, told the crowd:

The disruptions that are happening globally are going to continue to accelerate. And what’s more, in an age of instance information, where TV and Twitter can feed us a steady stream of bad news – and sometimes fake news – it can seem like the international order that we’ve created is being constantly tested, and that the center may not hold.

Secretly, Barack Obama probably hopes international order doesn’t hold so that he and his band of globalists have an excuse to rush in and save the day!

Similar to how he sold Obamacare as being compatible with capitalism, Obama who is adept at making lies sound factual told the Canadian crowd, “We have shown that environmental sustainability and economic progress are not contradictory, but are complementary.” Who is “we”?

Using clever wordplay to wring love from the audience, Obama thrilled the crowd when he said that, “Even with the temporary absence of American leadership… [the Paris Accord] … still gives our children a fighting chance.”

Wait! Was Barack Obama suggesting that without his leadership all children join the unborn in not having a fighting chance?

Nevertheless, the “us versus them” ex-president suggested that the current president has a “What’s good for me and my immediate people is all that matters. Everybody else is on their own” attitude.

Look who’s talking!

And so, whether in Europe, Canada, or in the company of rich friends, Barack Obama has proven once again that his desperate efforts to vindicate his legacy are nothing more than an expression of his own dark thoughts, intentions, and spirit.

Brandenburg Barack Reprimands Donald Trump

Originally posted at American Thinker

Time and experience have taught Americans that we either agree with the Barack Obama or become the object of his wrath.  The former president is so physically uncomfortable with disapproval that he becomes myopically fixated and seems obsessed with the mission of convincing his critics otherwise.

There’s no doubt that Obama perceives the 2016 election as a complete rejection of everything he stands for. That’s why; of late, the ex-president seems compelled to correct those he perceives as having rejected what it is he believes.

So, when not kite-surfing in Tahiti, super yachting and relaxing in Teti’aroa, or gorging on Torta di Ceci in Tuscany, Obama is about the business of chastising Americans his eight years of continual haranguing did nothing to change and embarrassing the president those voters elected.

Take for instance Trump’s injunction concerning refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries.

Unable to restrain the urge to express his opinion on the subject, the former POTUS waited just one week before having his spokesperson congratulate Americans for protesting the ban. That’s right, less than six months out of office and by inspiring thugs to oppose Trump with street violence; Obama has slipped back into the role of community organizer.

Then, as a representative of the government knowing better than parents, Obama, who was busy counting the $3.2 million stipend he pocketed in Milan, sent a “riled up” Michelle to the 2017 Healthier Future Summit, to rebuke Donald Trump for daring to implement a policy.

Obama’s proxy was so irate, she accused the current president of not caring about the same children both she and her husband would have aborted so as to never require a school lunch. In fact, Michelle equated minor nutritional adjustments to the menu with Trump feeding children “crap!”
More recently, Obama again exhibited his incapacity to control the urge to outmaneuver anyone disagreeing with, or getting more attention than him.

Rather than canceling the speech he supposedly committed to last year, and in hopes of seizing attention from Trump during his first international visit, Obama agreed to appear beside the chancellor who is orchestrating the Muslim conquest of Germany.

In the run-up to that speech, in hopes of offsetting Trump’s exposure, “Dear Barack” photo bombed the current president. To ensure everyone was aware he was in Europe, prior to meeting up with the women he spied on, Obama thrilled the European press by strutting around Tuscany in sunglasses, accompanied by a wife dressed in a shoulder-baring laced-up number that looked like a ripped sheet.

Then, just days after 22 youthful-corpses were lined up in a Manchester morgue, felled by a Libyan refugee/terrorist-administered nail bomb, at an event commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Obama exploited the event by discounting the value of finding a way to make it harder for terrorists to plant shrapnel in little girls.

Feeling compelled to add credence to absurdity, and to present a stark comparison an agenda he views as a personal affront, the ex-president garnered strength from the words of a liberal pop star who can’t co-exist with a husband, boyfriend, or Taylor Swift. Reacting to the Manchester massacre, singer and intellectual oracle Katy Perry pronounced that there should be “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to coexist.”  Such foolhardy gibberish was all the affirmation Obama needed to reconfirm his commitment to a message that emboldens extremists.

Obama also doubled down on former State Department SPOX Marie Harf’s suggestion that rehabilitating ISIS requires jobs programs. Without mentioning the far-right populist president’s name, in the shadow of Brandenburg Gate, the rock star usurper took it upon himself to school a man he clearly perceives to be intellectually inferior to himself, saying:

One way we can do a better job is to create more opportunities for people in their home countries. If there are disruptions in these countries, if there is bad governance, if there is war or if there is poverty, in this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves — we can’t hide behind a wall.

In Germany, Obama promoted “new world”-globalism telling the crowd that, according to loftier thinking, “We can’t isolate ourselves — we can’t hide behind a wall.”

The ex-president elaborated by adding “a child on the other side of the border is no less worthy of love and compassion than my own child. We can’t distinguish between them in terms of… worth and inherent dignity, and that they’re deserving of shelter and love and education and opportunity.”

That kind of liberal rationale comes from a well-practiced hypocrite.

If Obama doesn’t believe in walls, why then does he “isolate” himself behind the brick wall that surrounds his Washington, DC rental property?

Moreover, is Obama saying that the children on the other side of the wall outside his DC brick mansion are “less worthy of love and compassion” than Sasha and Malia? By blocking children out, is Barack distinguishing “between [children] in terms of their worth and inherent dignity, and [implying] that [only two are] deserving of shelter and love and education and opportunity?”

As for the children Obama cited in his speech, could some of those “deserving” cherubs be the adorable unaccompanied-minor MS-13 gang members his administration knowingly released onto American streets and who are currently hacking off heads on Long Island?

Either way, with all bloodshed in Britain, Barack was not about to waste an opportunity to adjust the attitude of his detractors, especially if doing so provided an excuse to elevate his philosophies above those of his successor.

And so, based on Obama’s comments, the reason the world’s greatest defender of failed liberal policy traveled all the way to Germany was not to commend Martin Luther, but as an excuse to crash Trump’s party, exalt his egotistical self, and to reaffirm among friends that his worldview is far superior to Donald Trump’s.|

LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN: THIS Is Who Is REALLY Behind The ‘Impeachment Mania’…

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

The left is in the midst of a major temper tantrum. The reason? They cheated, connived, and manipulated a win for Hillary Clinton and she lost anyway.

It’s no wonder Clinton, the woman with the gleeful full-body-he’s-an-idiot shiver during one debate, nearly went ballistic on the night of the election after she realized she lost to a man liberals view as a clown with a canary-yellow pompadour.

So, rather than accept the results of a fair election, and rather than submit to the will of “We the people,” the “Love Trumps hate” crowd has formed a hateful resistance and is presently in the process of trying to drive Donald Trump from the White House.

How are they doing it? With the same playbook they’ve used to incite street-level chaos for 40+ years. Now, the left is hoping to undermine a free and fair election by employing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, which, for progressives like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, is the Bible.

Alinsky’s ground rules worked very well for Barack Obama the community organizer when he applied them to incite worldwide chaos for eight years. Therefore, it stands to reason that liberals believe using similar strategies should be able to send an outsider like Trump back to his gilded Tower in New York City — permanently.

Currently, the game plan the left is testing involves trusty Rule #12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

Those instructions are exactly what are being inflicted on Donald Trump.

The left has TARGETED Trump for destruction. They are portraying him as a threat to America and have FROZEN his image as a cartoon-like inept, loose cannon, “pu**y-grabbing” rich, white guy, whose affection for Vladimir Putin outweighs his love for America.

What is being said about Trump is very PERSONAL. The media, Democrats and deep state Republicans have managed to either confirm prior opinions or have successfully defamed his character in the minds of many. The president is being portrayed as a liar and a threat to national security and world peace.

The hope is that via leaks and news stories that portray a frustrated White House staff the public will view Donald Trump as a man CUT OFF from a SUPPORT NETWORK, a man whose most ardent admirers are presently fed up and jumping ship.

Trump’s adversaries are hoping that the unrelenting pressure, and unsupported accusations from the media, Democrats, and deep-state Republicans will tire out the public and make those who once supported the populist president UNSYMPATHETIC and doubting their original choice.

As they threaten our representative republic by opposing the will of the people, the resistance movement is attempting to portray themselves as lovers of America who are against one man, not the INSTITUTION. The HURT they claim they are inflicting is not against the presidency, but, for the sake of freedom and America, against the singular person of Donald Trump.

These are classic Alinsky street thug, community activist tactics, these are the antics that worked for Obama on a national and global level for almost a decade. The left knows that if applied with passionate zeal, Rules for Radicals work just as well on a micro level against single individuals. The left also knows that these “rules” have the power to stir up the sort of chaos that demands someone end the madness by ushering in change most Americans would oppose under less chaotic circumstances.

In this case, the goal is impeachment.

There is a manipulative spirit at work here, and Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, should both recognize and fear it.

Moreover, even those Americans who oppose Trump’s politics and his presidency, need to acknowledge the tremendous danger our republic is in if political hooligans successfully employ the media and manipulate public officials to overturn a democratic election via violence, false accusation, and lies.
If the left succeeds — America is lost.

Trust me, disgruntled Americans should just take a break from hating Trump for one second and look behind the curtain, what they will see is the Machiavellian hands of Obama, and those like him, who, in hopes of vindicating a failed liberal legacy, are seeking the help of their demonically-inspired idol, the late Saul Alinsky.

Barack the BS Master Brags about Humility

Originally posted at American Thinker

Forgetting that it’s less than six months since the reign of illusion and delusion ended, the cover of the May 29, 2017 edition of People magazine recently featured a nostalgic story entitled “The Obamas: Their Lives Now.”

The caption below the photo read: “How Michelle and Barack are enjoying downtime with each other and their girls – and planning their surprising next moves.”

Irrespective of what People magazine attempted to represent, the goal of the glossy exploitation was to give the couple yet another excuse to denigrate Donald Trump.  That’s why the title should have read: “The Obamas: Still Belittling Everyone but Themselves.”

Authors Sandra Sobieraj Westfall and Kathy Ehrich began by portraying Michelle and Barry as regular folks spending lazy days fighting over closet space and trying to master the coffee maker control panel.

The article does mention a personal staff of 20, “many paid for by the former First Couple,” which makes one wonder why, after yachting in French Polynesia with the likes of Oprah, Forrest Gump, and The Boss, Michelle, or Barry would be futzing around with the Keurig.

In the first paragraph, the authors share a story about how, while heading home from what they call an “easy, breezy” food-industry trip to Milan, Barry, and his foreign policy adviser, Ben Rhodes, were “jolted by alerts” notifying them that Donald Trump had fired Obama-appointed FBI director James Comey.

The article stated that in response to the news, the egotistical Marxist – who fired a military general he had longstanding resentment toward and who has done more to damage the health of our representative republic – had this to say about Trump’s decision: “This is not normal.  This is not healthy for democracy.”

And who better to judge strange presidential behavior and what is detrimental to democracy than a pathological liar who spent eight years disrespecting the military and flouting the U.S. Constitution?

Westfall and Ehrich suggest that the nation is having trouble adjusting to a 45th president whom they describe as “erratic and impolitic,” which implies that Obama is neither of the two.  The article said “mission-focused” Obama yearns to settle into his downscaled life but is conflicted because of “Trump’s shadow” making it impossible for him, as an “engaged citizen,” to remain disengaged.

And so, according to the authors, Michelle and Barry distract themselves from the “chaos in Washington” they caused by doing everyday things like “plugging away at a congressional redistricting plan, spearheading educational initiatives, and writing his’n’-hers memoirs,” which will net “at least $60-million” of shareable wealth the duo will share with no one.

So, apparently, in addition to interviewing prospective terrorist ghostwriters to pen his third book, the community organizer is resolute in his efforts to eliminate political rivalry by pooling Democrat voters inside district lines that keep politicians he approves of elected and entrenched in office.

And if all this self-obsessed taking-over-the-world isn’t enough to alarm every clear-thinking American, the Obamas are also planning a Presidential Center for the South Side of Chicago that will be “more like a campus … [to train] the Michelle Robinsons and Barack Obamas of today, so they can take up the torch.”

To be authentic, the memorial should be named after the “evil genius” and Obama mentor Saul Alinsky and marketed as a place where hooligans learn to climb to the top by stirring up street-level mayhem.

The article also stated that after talking to Trump on the night of the election, the biggest BS artist on the planet told two close friends that what he concluded from the phone call is that the newly elected president is “nothing but a [BS-er]!”

With that in mind, friends stress that when he’s not kite-surfing in the British Virgin Islands, the ex-president is “[d]eeply concerned with what he’s seen.  But [he is] also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with elected representatives at town halls.”

It appears as if Barack confuses town hall attendees with the anti-GOP resistance and the rowdy anarchists punching out Trump supporters, suppressing free speech with riots, “taking up the torch” with arson, and accusing a duly elected president of crimes no one can prove.

It all raises the question: who’s the BS artist?

The Obama article also stated that besides advancing progressive policy, Michelle and Barry are deeply involved in the lives of daughters Sasha and Malia, whose photos are allegedly on “every flat surface” of their rented Washington, D.C. mansion.

About older daughter Malia, Obama said this: “She’s still a teenager who deserves her privacy.”  This sentiment is somewhat disingenuous coming from someone who, although he denies doing so, undoubtedly spied on everyone from Bibi Netanyahu to Angela Merkel to the Supreme Court to the Vatican to the Trump transition team.

And then there’s Michelle, whom the article refers to as “riled up,” reassuring college-bound students that both “Barack and I are going to keep on … lifting you up no matter what house we live in.”

For Michelle, “lifting up” includes putting down.

The People piece said Michelle “dreamed of a long vacation where her husband could just sleep, knowing his legacy was safe with President Hillary Clinton.”  But after an overconfident Hillary cheated and connived, and then lost the election anyway, mournful Michelle, who’s been “all black” since the day she was born, told guests “I’m going all black for the next couple of years.”

Imagine Laura Bush responding to the election of our first black president by saying, “I’m going all white for the next couple of years.”

Nonetheless, by now, everyone knows that neither Tahiti kite-surfing Barack nor his bride takes rejection or correction well.  That’s why the always classy Michelle, irate over changes being made to her school lunch program, publicly accused Trump of wanting to feed school kids “crap!”

In the end, after denigrating another president and pretending to be the only mortal capable of saving America from Donald Doom, Obama ended the People magazine article exalting himself with an absurd comment about how “the longer he was in office the more humble he became.”  This demonstrates that just as a Nobel Peace Prize made a street thug believe he was a peacemaker, Barack the BS artist must also believe that bragging about humility somehow makes a narcissist humble.

Liberals should ‘own every preventable death’

Originally posted at American Thinker

Once again, Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez’s inconsistent statements confound both reason and sanity.  Take for instance the topic of giving shelter to illegal aliens.  Perez strongly believes in sanctuary cities making sovereign decisions.  But in the next breath, Perez says he also strongly believes “[t]hat [abortion rights are] not negotiable and should not change city-by-city or state-by-state.”

So, based on those contrasting statements, according to Tom, city or state decisions are either “negotiable” or non-negotiable, based solely on which agenda is being advanced.

Then, recently, at a May Day rally held in front of the White House, speaking Spanglish, Tom told the boisterous crowd, “No human being is illegal.  We must treat everyone with dignity.”

Again, it appears as if abortion activist/illegal apologist Tom Perez has mixed things up when he says that because they are human, illegals can’t be deported.  Yet, at the same time, unborn humans can be aborted.  In other words, in the mind of Tom Perez illegal + human = not illegal, while unborn + human = not human.

Stunning illogicalities of this sort don’t stop with Perez just conferring dignity on one group of humans while denying life to another.  As a matter of fact, recently, right ahead of the House vote to repeal Obamacare, Perez, who clearly doesn’t think about how incongruous his declarations sound, said that if Obamacare is repealed:

Trump and Republicans will own every preventable death, every untreated illness and every bankruptcy that American families will be forced to bear if this bill becomes law and millions lose access to affordable care. The 24 million that lose access to healthcare is not just a number.

Notwithstanding Tom’s stunning assertions, the DNC chair did aptly reconfirm for those he seeks to condemn that the sixty million lives lost to abortion, and the thousands who’ve died at the hands of illegal immigrants, are “not just a number.”

Nonetheless, similar to Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who, with oversized gavel in hand, once accused Republicans of wanting “women [to] die on the floor” for voting against funding abortion in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the DNC chair is quick to accuse but slow to self-evaluate.

Tom personifies the mindset of liberal women on social media who now are saying that repealing Obamacare is tantamount to Trump forcing women who’ve been raped to pay for their own abortions.

Apparently, lefties like Perez and the pink pussy-hat brigade don’t realize that sentiments such as those implicitly equate American citizens with Islamist extremists who punish women who’ve been raped by stoning them to death.  Furthermore, maybe if Americans denouncing “preventable death” want to be taken seriously, they shouldn’t champion the slaughter of 3,000 unborn babies a day, or sanction the influx of those responsible for the daily demise of numerous fellow citizens.

Either way, Perez did go on to say that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) bill “represents fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and even newborn babies with heart diseases or cancers that are too costly to treat without affordable insurance.”

Based on the left’s cadaverous track record, and although purely speculation, the outcry coming from the left over repealing Obamacare is probably rooted in an unspoken concern that less carnage may result, not more.  That’s why liberals should just own up to the truth and admit that besides wounded pride, their disappointment over the defeat of Obamacare has more to do with losing the power over life and death than concern for Americans dying.

Besides, after supporting the murder and selling of baby body parts, late-term abortion-loving liberals defending Obamacare by lamenting newborns dying from fatal diseases is sort of like cannibals grieving over those they never got to boil and eat.

In the end, by promising that Trump will “own every preventable death,” once again, Tom Perez has made a proclamation that, rather than place the onus on the Republicans, actually convicts the Democrats.  Therefore, if thwarting death is really Perez’s objective, maybe he can give credibility to his convictions by denouncing abortion and supporting closed borders.

OSU ‘NIGHTMARES’: First Trump’s WIN Then Terror ATTACK

Originally posted at Clash Daily 

Recently, Ohio State University students participated in a group hug by taking part in a protest to give voice to their disappointment that Donald J. Trump was elected 45th president of the United States.

Two hundred students, faculty, and community activists came together in unity on the OSU Oval at an event organized by a college group that calls itself, Reclaim OSU. “We’re not here to get violent, we’re here to organize,” said Bilal El-Yousseph, a local activist who when not stirring up trouble on campus is posting “Free Palestine” and anti-police rants on his Facebook page.

Besides “F*ck Donald Trump”, “Grab democracy, not pussy”, and “Not my president” were some of the more creative signage paraded around the Oval. Always the gentleman, before initiating a “Fu*k Trump” chant, El-Yousseph, a devout Muslim, apologized for using obscenities that would surely displease Allah.

Among other things, the Down with Trump OSU angry post-election protestors marched for Democrat Party unity, to decry Trump’s proposal to ban Muslim immigrants, to stand with excluded individuals, and to denounce the new administration’s policies, which many rally participants view as racist and xenophobic.

Anti-capitalist lesbian activist Nicolette Yohn of the Multi-Partisan Coalition was part of the event.

Nicolette is a third-year political science and women’s, gender and sexuality studies student who shared, “Personally, I’m directly affected by the decisions of a Donald Trump administration, as a gay woman.”

Nicolette, who has a way with a bullhorn, didn’t exactly elaborate on how Donald Trump would negatively affect her life as a gay woman. However, despite lamenting the danger Trump posed to lesbians, Nicolette seemed totally at ease opposing the president-elect in the company of a Palestinian sympathizer whose religious inclination describes her sexual proclivities as “deviant.”

A few months ago, Ohio State University student activists also expressed their displeasure with law enforcement. By participating in the “March against racist police murder at OSU”, the OSU Coalition for Black Liberation (OSU4BL), and the OSU student organization, brought attention to the life of 13-year-old Tyre King who, after pulling a BB gun from his waistband, was tragically gunned down by Columbus, Ohio police officer.

Maryam Abidi, also a student of women’s, gender and sexuality studies and strategic communication, helped organize the police protest. Ms. Abidi told the OSU College paper, The Lantern that “We can’t just mourn and let it go…it’s important that we hold the cops mother-f—ing accountable.”

So, in addition to dropping “F”-bombs, the anti-cop event ended with a “die-in” where students simulated Tyre King’sdeath by lying lifeless for 13 minutes on the floor of the Ohio Union.

Apparently, there are a number of students at OSU who think that radicals journeying to the US from terrorist states are more tolerable than democratically elected patriots trying desperately to protect Americans from ISIS infiltrated refugees, and law enforcement personnel whose job is to rush into gun-free zones to save the lives of people who hate them.

Nonetheless, being distracted by nonsense could be why, as OSU activists were busy seeking social justice at “die-ins”, adjusting anti-Trump safety pins, and huddling in safe zones, no one noticed that an actual “marginalized” refugee from Somalia, inspired by ISIS, was plotting to mow down and stab those fighting to uphold inclusiveness.

While Nicolette worried about the impact a Trump administration would have on her same-sex lifestyle, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who became a permanent U.S. citizen in 2014, was ranting on Facebook that he had reached a “boiling point”, referencing “lone wolf attacks”, and paying homage to radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

It’s been reported that Abdul expressed concern about praying in public, but, perhaps, after the fact, open-minded OSU activists could thwart another hostile confrontation by holding open forum on whether or not The Campus Grind food court should integrate Somalian camel jerky into the snack section at Starbucks.

Either way, for lack of camel jerky, Ali Artan, a student who Nicolette and Bilal would likely view as a victim of Trump-style xenophobia carried out an attack by plowing a small gray car, sans a COEXIST bumper sticker, into a campus crowd, before stabbing a few people with a butcher knife that he had grabbed instead of “grabbing pussy”.

Unfortunately for Down with Trump OSU, the Ali Artan car-and-knife attack happened swiftly.

Ali Artan mowed down a dozen people so fast that those concerned about police brutalizing marginalized Muslims were unable to slow down the jihadist by jabbing the tires on his car with safety pins, or “shelter in place” at a campus safe zone.

Thank God for the quick thinking Alan Harujko, an armed police officer. Alan dared to shoot the frenzied jihadist dead with an actual gun, in a gun free zone, turning Ali Artan into a literal participant of a “die-in” by laying him flat out on the sidewalk awaiting a hearse for more than 13 minutes.

In the end, Palestinian activist El-Yousseph did make an apt observation when he said that the morning after the election some Ohio State University students have “been asleep and [have] woken up to a nightmare.” The difference is that the nightmare he and everyone else woke up to the morning Abdul Razak Ali Artan terrorized the OSU campus was not the same nightmare El-Yousseph and Yohn had envisioned the day after Donald Trump was elected.

HYPOCRITE: Obama Picks At A SPLINTER in Trump’s Eye But Has A SEQUOIA In His Own

Image result for plank in eyeOriginally posted at Clash Daily

Just a few days after a purportedly friendly meeting with Donald Trump at the White House, haughty, pompous, supercilious, know-it-all Barack Obama held a press conference, where, with a smile and an air of instructive concern, he proceeded to insult Donald Trump.

The event preceded an upcoming apology tour where the president has plans to explain to befuddled world leaders how “deplorable” voters who “cling to guns, religion, and xenophobia” managed to upset the American electoral process.

Let’s face it; Barack Obama is a quintessential liberal and the problem with liberals is that they are notorious for pointing out splinters while struggling with sequoias of their own.

Take for instance Obama warning that Trump’s “temperament” will undermine his progress unless he “corrects” it. This advice comes from a guy whose two-term vindictiveness includes this press conference and for eight-years, depending on the topic, has been continually on display.

Barack Obama warning Trump to correct his temperament is like Madonna advising post-menopausal women to act their age.

Lest we forget, America’s Nobel Peace Prize winner has spitefully retaliated against everyone who criticized him from the police to the Tea Party to Fox News to Bibi Netanyahu.

At the press conference, Obama attempted to provide a red-meat reality check by saying that Trump will not be able to fulfill his campaign pledges. The president said, “Whatever you bring to this office, this office has a habit of magnifying and pointing out. And hopefully, then you correct for it.”

Lacking self-awareness, clearly, Obama doesn’t realize that although the first part of his statement is 100% true, he never put the correction part into practice himself.

The president also pointed out that Trump is more “pragmatic” than “ideological,” which an ideologue like Obama probably doesn’t realize is a compliment, not an insult.

Although Barack Obama has a list of gaffes a mile long, that didn’t stop him from admonishing Trump for saying what Obama calls “inaccurate” things at rallies.

The president cautioned that “everybody is paying attention” and “markets move” when presidents speak. What Obama didn’t mention was how favorably the market has rebounded since Donald Trump was elected, nor did he cite examples of his own glaring inexactitude.

Take for instance when “Magical Mystery Tour” Barack, on the campaign trail in 2008 shared, “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go, not counting Alaska and Hawaii.”

Obama also forgot how he called a Navy corpsman a “corpse man”, signed a guest book in London’s Westminster Abbey, “24 May 2008,” when it was 2011, and how, after 12 people were killed by a Kansas twister, he lamented that, “Ten thousand people died [and] an entire town [was] destroyed.”

Instead, after praising President-Elect Donald Trump for pulling off “one of the biggest political upsets in history,” and doing it despite George Soros’s influence, and 3 million illegals voting, Barack Obama chose to couch his commendations in a series of snide, denigrating remarks.

Ignoring his own razor-thin resume, the former community organizer, whose race and charismatic speaking style catapulted him to the presidency, predicted that once Trump is in office, “reality [will have] a way of asserting itself.”

Ah! So, “reality asserting itself” must be what caused Obama to waste $800+ billion dollars on a failed stimulus package. And if that’s true, then “assertive realism” must also be what caused Obama to give hoards of illegal felons, unaccompanied minors, and ISIS sympathizers permission to invade the US.

Pesky ‘”assertive reality” is likely also the reason Obama left four Americans to die in Benghazi, destroyed the US healthcare system, swelled unemployment numbers to unprecedented proportions, and contributed to 35% of the US population ending up on welfare rolls.

And finally, “realistic assertion” can be blamed for instigating Barack Obama to foment racial violence, diss our ally Israel, anger Vladimir Putin, support the Arab Spring, hand a nuke to Iran, walk guns over the border to Mexican drug cartels, and pack a pallet with $400 million in cash and load it onto a US cargo plane and deliver it to a genocidal terrorist state.

Either way, the president took the opportunity to say that, notwithstanding “concerns” about turning the White House (which is the People’s House, not his house) over to a pushy Republican, he has confidence that once Trump is inaugurated the billionaire real estate mogul’s enthusiasm will be dampened.

When he warned that “the federal government and our democracy is not a speedboat, it’s an ocean liner,” those words paid homage to Michelle, the woman who managed to spend well over $100 million tax dollars on lavish “ocean liner”-like vacations.

And the hammering didn’t stop there.

Clearly disgruntled, America’s most infamous sound bite whore actually had the brazen effrontery to say this about some of the things Trump said on the campaign trail, “You know, there are certain things that made for good, good sound bites, but don’t always translate into good policy.”

Wait! Wasn’t it the “Hope and Change” merchant whose campaign sound bites promised that if he was elected “the rise of the oceans would slow and our planet heal”? Then, after all the “good sound bites”, blinded-by-a-beam Obama’s policies reeked havoc on America while simultaneously submerging the world in chaos and bloodshed.

In the end, Obama is well aware that Trump being elected is a full repudiation of his atrocious presidency, devastated political party, and detrimental ideology. Proving once again that, in an effort to regain credibility, liberal hypocrites like Barack Obama, to distract from their own sequoia, will focus on a splinter.

OPINION Has DePaul University taken a bigoted stand against bigotry?

Originally posted at Live Action News

In May of 2016, Black Lives Matter protestors at the nation’s largest Catholic university, Chicago’s DePaul University, physically assaulted controversial conservative public speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos.

Then, three months later, citing security concerns, DePaul’s Young Americans for Freedom were prohibited from inviting conservative pundit, nationally syndicated columnist, author, radio talk show host, and attorney, Ben Shapiro.

In keeping with these sorts of decisions, DePaul University recently forbade conservative students from displaying pro-life posters on campus. These posters were simple, proclaiming, “Unborn Lives Matter,” along with the date and time of DePaul College Republican meetings on campus.

Citing the university’s Guiding Principles on Speech and Expression, university president Father Dennis Holtschneider, who is resigning as of the end of the year after admitting he mishandled campus race relations, pointed out that the poster — which sought to elevate the sanctity of all life — “provokes the Black Lives Matter movement” and should be redesigned.

In a letter to the College Republicans, Holtschneider said that “under the cover of free speech,” the words “Unborn Lives Matter” could be interpreted as “bigotry.” In his letter defending why DePaul decided hanging pro-life posters constitutes bigotry, Father Holtschneider wrote:

By our nature, we are committed to developing arguments and exploring important issues that can be steeped in controversy and, oftentimes, emotion. Yet there will be times when some forms of speech challenge our grounding in Catholic and Vincentian values. When that happens, you will see us refuse to allow members of our community be subjected to bigotry that occurs under the cover of free speech.

In part, the DePaul website outlines the charitable Vincentian values Father Holtschneider mentions in his letter:

Motivated by the example of St. Vincent, who instilled a love of God by leading his contemporaries in serving urgent human needs, the DePaul community is above all characterized by ennobling the God-given dignity of each person. This religious personalism is manifested by the members of the DePaul community in a sensitivity to and care for the needs of each other and of those served, with a special concern for the deprived members of society.

Maybe someone needs to ask Fr. Holtschneider what he, as a Catholic, considers a more “urgent human need” than the right to preserve the life of every unborn child. Or maybe while trying to avoid stepping on racial landmines, Holtschneider could also enlighten us as to how openly expressing a true sentiment like ‘unborn life matters’ fails to ennoble the “God-given dignity of each person.”

Then, in keeping with his Vincentian values argument, after the soon-to-be-retired university president clarifies the first two points, he can then explain why the 3,000 preborn babies robbed of the right to life daily — many of whom are black — are not considered the most “deprived members of society.”

In the end, despite citing Catholic and Vincentian values, it appears that at DePaul University, conservative students are becoming the victims of politically correct restrictions imposed on them by university administrators who discriminate against conservative values.
