Obama Has No Confidence In Biden, Told Him He Didn’t Have to Run Against Trump In 2020

H/T Flag And Cross.

Bathhouse Barry Obama knew Slow Joe The Gaff Machine would not only embarrass himself but he would make Obama look bad.

Bathhouse Barry also knew President Trump is extremely popular and he has a record that can not realistically be run against.

INSTANT CLASSIC!?

Barack Obama didn’t need Joe Biden to win the presidency in 2008.

He literally could’ve picked any other human being in America and still would’ve won.

And yet, Obama and company chose Biden – Mr. Gaffe.

Now that Joe is looking to unseat President Trump in 2020, Obama has consistently shown no faith in his former right-hand man.

Former President Barack Obama reportedly wasn’t particularly sold on the idea of Joe Biden, his vice president for eight years, mounting his own bid for the White House in 2020.

“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden before the 76-year-old formally launched his campaign in April, acording to the New York Times.

“Mr. Biden — who thinks he could have defeated Donald Trump four years ago — responded by telling Mr. Obama he could never forgive himself if he turned down a second shot at Mr. Trump,” the Times reports.

The Times states Obama huddled with top Biden aides in March to implore they insure that the former vice president does not “damage his legacy” or “embarrass himself.”

Need another example as to why Obama isn’t big on Joe?

Okay, here you go…

Biden concedes that under Obama ‘a lot of people were left behind’

Joe Biden said the White House under President Barack Obama, when Biden was vice president, did not do enough to address the concerns of white working-class voters in the Rust Belt.

If you had the ability to take out Osama bin Laden, you do it. That’s pretty much a no-brainer.

The monster was behind the deaths of nearly 3,000 people on 9/11.

Biden didn’t feel that way. He told Obama to not go ahead with the raid.

What’s funny is 44 cared so little about Joe’s opinion that he went forward with the plan anyway.

Police Union Slams Elizabeth Warren For Pushing The Ferguson Lie

H/T The Lid.

We all know Fauxahontis Warren is a pathological liar so lying about Micheal Browns shooting is no big surprise.

Bathhouse Barry Obama’s DOJ said Micheal Browns shooting was justified.

The Massachusetts Police Union excoriated Senator Elizabeth Warren for pushing the Ferguson lie that a police officer murdered Michael Brown sparking the riots in 2014,

Scott Hovsepian, president of the Massachusetts Coalition of Police, slammed the senator and Democrat candidate for president for “causing our society grievous harm.”

Hovsepian posted an open letter to the senator taking her to task for her lie that Michael Brown “was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.”

“Five years ago, Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Michael was unarmed, yet he was shot 6 times. I stand with activists and organizers who continue the fight for justice for Michael. We must confront systemic racism and police violence head-on,” Warren tweeted on August 9.

In his letter, Hovsepian points out that even Barack Obama’s administration found that Michael Brown was not killed unlawfully by the Ferguson police.

“The Department of Justice (under President Obama) found that there was no criminal intent on Officer Wilson’s part. Therefore, you should stop referring to him as a murderer,” Hovsepian’s letter reads. “As a lawful professor, you may remember that murder is the UNLAWFUL killing of another. As no law was broken, there is no murder.”

Hovsepian goes on to accuse Warren of pandering for votes by making “incorrect and inflammatory statements”:

I want to make this as clear as possible and every member of the Massachusetts Coalition of Police wants you to understand: your labeling of law enforcement as racist and violent is unacceptable and dangerous. Maybe I didn’t deliver the message strongly enough the last time we spoke. YOUR POLITICAL PANDERING FOR PRESIDENTIAL VOTES IS GETTING POLICE OFFICERS AND CITIZENS HURT AND KILLED. We have told you that if you have specific issues, that we would work with you to work towards repairing those issues. Your response is to continually make incorrect and inflammatory statements that are detrimental to society as a whole.

Indeed, Warren’s claim that thug Michael Brown was somehow murdered by a police officer is a flat out lie.

In truth, Michael Brown was attempting to wrest away the police officer’s gun when he was shot. The left has lied for five years that Brown was yelling “hands up don’t shoot” when he was fired upon by the police officer. But Brown was a criminal who was trying to take an officer’s gun with which to kill the officer.

Michael Brown was no innocent. And Warren pushing that lie is an outrage.

2020 Dems’ Latest Attack on Obama: His DOJ Bungled the Michael Brown ‘Murder’ Investigation

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

First off Micheal Brown got his punk ass shot because he had attacked a police officer and was rushing toward the same officer.

I know Bathhouse Barry Obama has to be pissed having his legacy challenged by the 2020 DemocRat clowns.

Warren, Harris stand with activists against Obama officials.

Democratic presidential candidates continue to throw shade on the legacy of former President Barack Obama. They rarely criticize him by name, but many of the 2020 hopefuls have implicitly attacked Obama’s record on health care, immigration, and climate change, among other issues.

The latest example of implied criticism, courtesy of two prominent contenders, focuses on the Obama administration’s investigation into the controversial police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) marked the five-year anniversary of Brown’s death on Twitter by asserting that he was “murdered.”

That’s not what Barack Obama’s Department of Justice concluded after investigating the incident. The federal probe, in addition to the local criminal investigation presented to a grand jury, did not find sufficient evidence to pursue charges against Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Brown. Both largely substantiated Wilson’s version of events that Brown reached into his police car and attempted to grab the officer’s gun.

The DOJ investigation further concluded that a central detail in the popular narrative surrounding the case — that Brown held his hands up and shouted “don’t shoot” — was likely false, and based on testimony from unreliable witnesses. The tweets from Sens. Harris and Warren suggest that Obama’s Justice Department failed to address “systemic racism” and “racial equity” in the justice system.

Biden: If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden is recycling the same BS Bathhouse Barry Obama handed us about Obamacare.

It was a Damned lie then and it is a Damned lie today. 

Repeats Obama pledge about Affordable Care Act.

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden repeated one of his old boss’s most infamous pledges on Monday, saying under his proposal, “if you like your health care plan … you can keep it.”

The 2020 Democratic frontrunner released a health care plan Monday that would seek to build upon the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, which included subsidies to lower prices on the exchanges and also allowing for a “public option” his campaign called similar to Medicare.

“I give people the option. If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it,” Biden told an audienceat an AARP-sponsored forum. “If in fact you have private insurance, you can keep it.”

Some of his 2020 rivals, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) are pushing for some form of a single-payer “Medicare for All” program. Some versions would completely eliminate private health insurance. Biden warned the crowd of that possible outcome if they liked the plans they have and said the transition would be difficult.

With his, Biden said, “you get a choice.”

“You get full coverage, and you can stay with your plan if you like it,” Biden said. “You can stay with your employer-based plan, or you can move on. I think it’s the quickest, most reasonable, rational and best way to get to universal coverage.”

His use of the phrase “you can keep it” created a stir, given how much it hurt President Barack Obama politically.

Obama pledged dozens of times during and after the passage of the Affordable Care Act that Americans who liked their current health care policies would be able to keep them, even punctuating his promise at times with an emphatic “period.” However, millions of cancellation notices went out upon the law’s implementation for not meeting Obamacare standards, leading him to get hit by PolitiFact with the 2013 “Lie of the Year.”

 

Biden has criticized his rivals for wanting to scrap Obamacare, one of the Obama administration’s main domestic accomplishments.

“Medicare goes away as you know it,” he said of his rivals’ proposals. “But the transition of dropping 300 million people on a new plan is, I think, kind of a little risky at this point.”

 

 

Majority of Americans WANT the ‘Citizenship Question’ On the U.S. Census

H/T Godfather Politics.

The citizenship question was on the census form until Bathhouse Barry Obama removed it.

With yet another liberal court intervening to try and stop the Trump administration from doing its job, a new poll finds that a majority of people WANT the “citizenship question” to be placed on the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census.

The administration had proposed adding a question to ascertain if those replying to the census were official U.S. citizens. But the courts struck down the proposal.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the citizenship question that the Trump administration proposed, but the court did not say that no citizenship question is permissible. Now the administration is considering altering the question for inclusion on the 2020 Census.

But, according to a new Economist/YouGov poll, most Americans want such a question on the Census. The poll found that 53 percent want the question whereas only 32 percent do not, the Washington Examiner reported.

The survey asked: “Do you think the federal government should or should not ask people whether they are American citizens as part of the 2020 census?”

The results:
-Should ask 53%
-Should not ask 32%
-Not sure 14%

The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

48K people are talking about this

According to George Washington University Law professor John Banzhaf, the citizenship question should be able to pass Constitutional muster.

“There are several rationales — including one based upon the Constitution itself — which could well still persuade the courts to permit a citizenship question on the census, especially if the explanation were included in the executive order now being considered, rather than in some new declaration by the Secretary of Commerce,” Banzhaf said.

Indeed, such a question was on the U.S. Census from 1850 until Eisenhower eliminated it for the 1950 Census.

The media did not really report that the question had been removed by the Eisenhower administration. Worse, current reporting of Trump’s decision to put it back is often presented without telling the public that the question has only been missing from only seven Census forms in the last 170 years.

Report: DHS Sec. Accused of Leaking Trump’s ICE Raid Now Tied to Obama, Hillary

H/T Western Journal.

It is time for President Trump to fire the acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan.

Leaks and internal struggles have plagued the Trump administration since day one, and now it looks like yet another die-hard Democrat supporter may have been pulling strings in Washington to undermine the president.

On Saturday, the Washington Examiner reported that a key Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation intended to round up certain illegal aliens was called off after an insider allegedly passed confidential details of the operation to the media.

Two days before the operation was set to begin, outlets including The Washington Post announced it to the world, effectively eliminating any element of surprise.

“President Trump has directed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to conduct a mass roundup of migrant families that have received deportation orders, an operation that is likely to begin with predawn raids in major U.S. cities on Sunday,” The Post reported.

But that “roundup” never happened, and the reason may be a political coup. According to homeland security reporter and border expert Anna Giaritelli, fingers now point to a longtime Democrat ally as the “leaker” who tipped off the media and the law breakers.

“This week’s big leak about a major Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation was orchestrated by acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan in an effort to sabotage the raids before they were scheduled to take place, according to three current and two former senior administration officials,” Giaritelli wrote in the Examiner.

“[A]ll five officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner confirmed McAleenan’s decision to go rogue and stymie the operation was what prompted the White House to call off the 10-city operation,” the report continued.

It would make sense if McAleenan was the one who threw a wrench into the ICE mission. Government sources interviewed by Giaritelli allegedly said that the secretary had pushed back against the raids for months.

And McAleenan traveled to the border last week with Washington Post journalist Nick Miroff — the same source which published details of the planned raid.

If there was any question about McAleenan’s possible motivations, a follow-up story from the Examiner should clear it up.

Records show that the official suspected by insiders to be the leaker was a loyal backer of former President Barack Obama, while his wife was clearly a Hillary Clinton supporter.

Here are some of the FEC records that show donations acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan & his wife made to Obama in 08, Obama in 12, Clinton in 16. McAleenan is accused of leaking ICE raids to sabotage them because he opposes Trump’s border strategy.https://washex.am/2X56JPL

“Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who was accused of sabotaging the Trump administration’s deportation operation because of a personal opposition to the plan, has given for years solely to Democratic causes,” wrote Giaritelli in the Examiner, citing federal records.

“He made 11 contributions from $100 to $600 totaling $3,000 to then-Sen. Barack Obama between November 2007 and November 2008,” the newspaper continued. “[H]is wife made three donations totaling $505 to Hillary for America in July 2016.

Now, donating to one candidate or another may not be a problem by itself, but it does raise red flags when combined with the growing number of Washington voices who believe McAleenan let his personal politics get in the way of his duty.

“He has proven his political leanings in his actions, including his campaign contributions,” Brandon Judd wrote in a scathing Fox News Op-Ed piece. Judd heads the National Border Patrol Council, essentially a union of 16,000 Border Patrol agents. “By definition, Kevin McAleenan should be considered anti-Trump,” he continued.

Judd believes that if McAleenan did leak ICE plans to the media, it was a serious dereliction of duty.

“McAleenan was inexcusably willing to put the public at risk and law enforcement officers in harm’s way in order to further his own agenda, an agenda which has not aligned with that of President Trump from the day he was appointed to his previous position as Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” the NBPC president wrote.

He’s right. Having personal views about a president is fine, but letting those views get in the way of an official’s job and the proper execution of America’s laws is unacceptable. It looks like the D.C. “swamp” still hasn’t been drained, and it’s time to start asking some hard questions.

Obama: Anyone Can Buy Gun Anytime They Want

H/T Bearing Arms.

In spite of what Bathhouse Barry Obama says not just anyone can buy a gun when they want.

You must fill out form 4473 and pass the background check.

Then if you wish to purchase an automatic weapon you pay major fees and must undergo an extensive background that is done by the federal government.

You do not just go to the local gun shop and walk out with a machine gun in spite of what Bathhouse Barry Obama has to say.

Guns are one of the most tightly controlled items available for sale in the nation. While medications require a doctor’s prescription, they don’t require a background check, and in many cases, don’t even require you to show an ID. Further, someone else can pick up your prescription with a few exceptions.

With guns, you have to have a background check as well as fill out a questionnaire under penalty of perjury. If the background check gets stalled, you have to wait for days before you can complete your purchase.

Further, in many states, I have to go through this even for a transaction between private parties.

But former President Barack Obama, speaking in Brazil, seems to think that American gun laws are outright non-existent.

Former President Barack Obama slammed U.S. gun laws on Thursday while speaking an event in Brazil, telling the audience that the laws “don’t make much sense” and claimed that “anybody can buy any weapon any time.”

Obama began by recalling the “most difficult day” in office was the aftermath of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre that left 26 dead, including 20 young children in Newtown, Conn.

“My daughters were only a little bit older than these young children that have been shot, and I had to go and comfort the parents,” Obama said. “And some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time…”

That sparked loud applause from the Brazilian audience.

“You know, without much, if any, regulation,” he continued. “They can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns. And for me, having to speak to parents who have lost a child, just two days or a day after it had happened, and not being able to assure them that that would change, that we would fix this — I couldn’t bring their children back, but I couldn’t even promise them that we would change the law so this didn’t happen to somebody else’s children.”

Critics blasted the former president, accusing him of “lying” about U.S. gun laws.

And that, of course, is because he was lying.

Look, Obama knows more about American gun laws than he wants to let on. He knows damn good and well that you can’t buy a gun over the internet, that such a purchase has to go through a licensed gun dealer who will conduct the federally-required background check. He knows that machine guns are tightly controlled and due to the plethora of laws around them are out of reach for the average law-abiding citizen.

Now, I’ll argue that one thing he says touches on reality. Anybody can buy any weapon any time…but not legally. To conduct those kinds of sales, you have to delve into the black market. There, if you can find someone with a machine gun to sell and have the money, you can buy it. Plain and simple.

That’s not the norm, though. Buying a machine gun legally requires a rather lengthy process that starts with local law enforcement, then goes on to the federal government. You need law enforcement’s permission before you can purchase such a weapon and it’s not an overnight process by any stretch of the imagination.

Obama’s comments don’t even cover the more common variety of firearms. Guns can’t be sold to “anybody,” as Obama alleges. They can’t be sold to convicted felons, those found to be domestic abusers or those who have been “adjudicated as mentally defective.” Anyone under a restraining order is legally barred from buying a firearm as well.

“Anybody” can’t buy guns.

The former president knows this. He has to. There’s no way he missed the mountains of criticism that befell him after he commented that it was easier to get a gun than a book in many places. While I’m sure his staff tried to keep him pretty sheltered from the criticism, he couldn’t miss it all, especially from friendly publications like the Washington Post.

And yet, he’s doubling down on that earlier lie.

The one saving grace is that as a former president, he has virtually no power. He may be influential with the Democratic base, who already agrees with him and thus can’t be swayed. He’s persona non grata as far as the Right is concerned, and therefore isn’t likely to sway anyone there. His only real power is that he has exactly one vote during elections.

He can spout off with this nonsense all he wants, but he can’t change reality.
