Obama had Secret Backchannel Contact with Iran DURING the '08 Campaign. No Snowflakes Demanding Trump's Impeachment Raised an Eyebrow

What Obama did with Iran and the nuke deal was not only a sellout of the United States but our allies in the region. No one in Trump world even comes close to that!

All this blather about first Michael Flynn and then Jared Kushner and backchannels to Russia. First, there is NOTHING improper about these channels for a President-Elect or a President. And NOTHING came of those contacts. Contrast that with Obama who had a secret backchannel to Iran during the 2008 campaign before he was even elected and who also had a secret backchannel to Russia.

And what's worse is that Obama's interference in Iran meant that Iran hardened it's position in official talks with the U.S. and other allies making a real deal that would have reduced Iran's nuclear capability impossible. That's tantamount to TREASON for Obama and his backchannel!

Where's the outrage over that? Where are the calls for congressional investigations, special prosecutors and impeachment? Where's Maxine Waters?

None of that. It's just another example of whatever Republicans do must be a crime even if it's not. No matter what laws Obama and Hillary broke they will never be held to account!

Poor Dem Trump Haters. Had Such High Hopes in Montana Special Election and LOST AGAIN!

Oh the delusions of living in a bubble. Dems just can't seem to understand why REAL Americans despise them!

Results via the New York Times:

Dems hoped that news of the GOP candidate decking an obnoxious reporter would sink Gianforte. Really? In Montana, that assured the Republican of winning.

Besides, all this Dem caterwauling about Gianforte rings hollow after the assaults on Trump supporters. And next time some Dem starts whining about the lack of civility, just replay the tape of the Chairman of the Democrat Party of California leading a chant of "F#$k Trump" at an official party gathering earlier in May:

Let's not forget that Dems made keeping ObamaCare a centerpiece of their campaign. That ploy went down faster than the reporter who hit the ground!

Dems just don't seem to get the message that outside their bubble of left wing insanity REAL Americans think they are nuts.

Welcome Rep-elect Gianforte, the newest Republican in Congress. Perhaps you could give Nancy Pelosi and her vile Democrat hate squad a few lessons on civility. Do it Montana style!

UPDATE: The Dem "Resistance" Mirage

An interesting article in U.S. News and World Report describing the frustration Dems are having with the FACT they are unable to win any of these special elections.
US News: [O]bservers can be assured that if Democrats had emerged victorious in any thus far, it would've sparked a fusillade of headlines and coverage portraying a coming doomsday for the GOP.

What's true is that these early elections are showing the limits of the Democratic resistance that has bubbled up across the country and into the streets. It's proved powerful, but not transformative.
You can bet those stories describing the political demise of the GOP were already written long before ballots were cast in Montana or earlier in Georgia. And that Democrat resistance that the writer above describes as "powerful" is just a media created mirage. The American people, REAL America, as opposed do the fantasy and fever swamps of the left and their media accomplices isn't buying the hate Trump message!

Attacks on Children are Legacy of Obama's Indifference to Spread of ISIS. the "Jay Vee Team"

Obama's rigid ideology led to spread of ISIS and current state of terrorist attacks!

When he came to office in 2009 Obama was determined to "end the war in Iraq" and set about directing the withdrawal of U.S. troops. He made no effort to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement (1,2,3) that might have retained some U.S. capability. Politifact rates this as an "Obama promise kept." After the pullout was complete Obama claimed That Iraq was "sovereign, stable and self-reliant," and called it a "moment of success."

Does anyone seriously think Obama ended the war? Instead of leaving behind the intelligence and support infrastructure that would have preserved the difficult and bloody gains made by the surge Obama pulled the plug and into that vacuum walked ISIS.

At first Obama scoffed at the advances made by ISIS. Who can forget what he said to the New Yorker in January 2014:

Obama should have been impeached for that!
One year later ISIS had undone all the work that thousands of Americans and Iraqis died to accomplish in Iraq.  At one point Baghdad was nearly surrounded. The death toll of those caught behind ISIS lines is staggering. Who can forget the scenes of mass murder carried out? Those scenes quickly spread to Syria, and to Africa. One scene at the beach in Libya of Christians being beheaded turned the Mediterranean red with blood. Prior to that Obama said that in the past Christians were just as bad.

When pressed, Obama took months to come up with a strategy to defeat ISIS. It involved self described "pin prick" airstrikes, where leaflets were often dropped in advance to warn of the bombs to come.

And while Obama dithered, across the globe the carnage spread.

ISIS growth a direct consequence of Obama's policy!
This week's attack in Manchester targeting young girls is just the latest act of barbarism. Earlier in the week reports surfaced showing ISIS beheadings of women and children in Syria. And don't forget the Yazidi women and young girls forced to become sex slaves.

In the wake of these earlier attacks the Obama Administration seemed more focused on combating Islamophobia than on protecting the American people or working to defeat ISIS. The consequences of that policy are on full display in Manchester, England where another second generation refugee from the Middle East (like the Orlando and Chattanooga killers) went on a killing spree. Response from the American left has been to thwart Trump's call to limit refugee admission from the countries most likely to breed such evil.

So, here we go again. More memorials. Piles of flowers and candles. Funerals for young girls and their mothers. At least we are rid of the idiocy Obama brought to this situation and Trump gives great hope for a new, more effective policy to deal with this evil!
Obama's "Jay Vee team" scores again!

Trump's Royal Welcome in Saudi Arabia Matches Symbolism with Tough Words and ACTION in Speech Obama Could Never Deliver

Trump triumphs in meeting and speech with Muslim leaders. A new beginning in the war to combat radical Islamic ideology!

Forget the corrupt left wing judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals in the United States who tried to paint Trump as anti-Islamic. Trump's first visit overseas was to the heart of the Muslim world where he not only met but LED the leaders assembled in a new strategy to combat the terrorists.

Unlike Obama bowing to the Saudi King or giving a speech long on apologies and false moral equivalence in Cairo in 2009 Trump's speech [full text] was aimed solely on combating terrorist ideologies. He did so before an "unprecedented" gathering of leaders from 55 Muslim nations.

At Riyadh Muslim Summit Trump center, leads the Muslim world in combating terrorist ideology!

Unlike Obama, Trump's words were direct and to the point. Excerpts from the speech:
TRUMP:The potential of this region has never been greater. 65 percent of its population is under the age of 30. Like all young men and women, they seek great futures to build, great national projects to join, and a place for their families to call home.

But this untapped potential, this tremendous cause for optimism, is held at bay by bloodshed and terror. There can be no coexistence with this violence.

There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it.

Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith.

Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death.

If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen. Terrorism’s devastation of life will continue to spread. Peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence. And the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered.

If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing—then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God.

This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations.

This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it.

This is a battle between Good and Evil.

When we see the scenes of destruction in the wake of terror, we see no signs that those murdered were Jewish or Christian, Shia or Sunni. When we look upon the streams of innocent blood soaked into the ancient ground, we cannot see the faith or sect or tribe of the victims – we see only that they were Children of God whose deaths are an insult to all that is holy.

But we can only overcome this evil if the forces of good are united and strong – and if everyone in this room does their fair share and fulfills their part of the burden.

Terrorism has spread across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land.

America is prepared to stand with you – in pursuit of shared interests and common security.

But the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them. The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children.

It is a choice between two futures – and it is a choice America CANNOT make for you.

A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive. Them. Out. DRIVE THEM OUT of your places of worship. DRIVE THEM OUT of your communities. DRIVE THEM OUT of your holy land, and DRIVE THEM OUT OF THIS EARTH.
Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory – piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and YOUR SOUL WILL BE CONDEMNED.
For many centuries the Middle East has been home to Christians, Muslims and Jews living side-by-side. We must practice tolerance and respect for each other once again—and make this region a place where every man and woman, no matter their faith or ethnicity, can enjoy a life of dignity and hope.

In that spirit, after concluding my visit in Riyadh, I will travel to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and then to the Vatican – visiting many of the holiest places in the three Abrahamic Faiths. If these three faiths can join together in cooperation, then peace in this world is possible – including peace between Israelis and Palestinians. I will be meeting with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
I ask you to join me, to join together, to work together, and to FIGHT together— BECAUSE UNITED, WE WILL NOT FAIL.

Thank you. God Bless You. God Bless Your Countries. And God Bless the United States of America.
Trump also recognized the concrete steps his hosts and other Muslim neighbors were taking to identify terrorists and cut off their funding. Included also were strong words regarding Iran and it's role in fomenting terrorism and unrest.

Contrast Trump's relatively short speech with Obama more than 6,000 words of empty promises which concluded not with blessings on the United States but "God's peace be upon you," a Muslim greeting. Trump never shied away from pointing out the injustices against Christians and Jews in Riadyh while Obama mentioned those other two great religions only with false moral equivalence and blame.

This was the speech the Muslim world needed to hear from a leader they know stands behind what he says and will not desert them if they join with us. While Obama embraced Iran at the expense of Muslim leaders who seek to combat terrorism, Trump will do the opposite. A welcome change!

A Royal Welcome!

Everywhere the Saudis made it clear that they have aligned with Trump in the War on Terror:

Harvard Study Makes it Official: Trump Get's WORST COVERAGE of any Modern President

And note just how kind the left wing media was to Obama!

The Shorenstein Center for Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard released their findings of media coverage of Trump's first 100 days. Records were broken for how negative and slanted the coverage was. Highlights:

Nothing short of a media coup against democracy and the will of the American people as expressed in a presidential election!

Dem. Sen. Di Feinstein Says "NO EVIDENCE" of Trump Russia Collusion. So When Will the Lying Stop?

So many investigations. So much intelligence reviewed and NOTHING to substantiate the charges. Can we say it was all a BIG LIE?

Earlier this month CNN's Wolf Blitzer interviewed the venerable Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) who serves on both the Judiciary and Intelligence committees in the U.S. Senate whether she had found any evidence of Trump collusion with Russia. No was the answer. So, two weeks later Wolf asks again:

WOLF BLITZER, CNN: The last time we spoke, Senator, I asked you if you had actually seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and you said to me -- and I am quoting you now -- you said, ‘not at this time.’ Has anything changed since we spoke last?

SEN. FEINSTEIN: Well, no -- no, it hasn't...

BLITZER: But, I just want to be precise, Senator. In all of the -- you have had access from the Intelligence Committee, from the Judiciary Committee, all of the access you have had to very sensitive information, so far you have not seen any evidence of collusion, is that right?

SEN. FEINSTEIN: Well, evidence that would establish that there's collusion. There are all kinds of rumors around, there are newspaper stories, but that's not necessarily evidence.
So, will all the left wing kooks running around citing some anonymous source for a fake newspaper story as proof that Trump and Putin are in cahoots stop spreading their lies? Not a chance. Hate and lies are all they have!

Special Prosecutor Gives Trump Risk Without Reward. Plus, Where is Hillary Prosecutor?

Once again, the GOP does the honorable thing which Dems never do!

How many times over the past eight years did the GOP call for a Special Prosecutor to investigate Obama and Clinton scandals? Fast and Furious gun running to Mexican gangs, IRS targeting the Tea Party, Hillary's emails or Clinton Foundation funding, Wiretapping reporters, Stuxnet virus, Attorney General Holder lying to Congress. It's a long list. But Obama just ignored it all because he knew that the people who worked at the Department of Justice were personally loyal to him and the Democrat Party. No better testament to that could be seen than the meeting Bill Clinton had with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on her plane as the investigation to Hillary was at it's peak.

There is a MOUNTAIN of evidence to suggest real crimes were committed yet no Special Prosecutor was ever appointed. The same Democrats who are screaming about Trump and Russia without a SHRED of evidence just shrugged off those scandals. And the same people who demanded Attorney General Jeff Sessions recuse himself from any Trump-Russia investigation were only too happy to look the other way while Holder, then Lynch covered up for Obama.

Of course we know why Dems were so desperate to avoid a Special Prosecutor. They remember the witch hunt unleashed by Patrick Fitzgerald in the Valerie Plame affair. Her name was leaked by Richard Armitage at the State Department but he was never charged with that. Instead, the investigation became a way of paralyzing and punishing the Bush Administration. Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff Scotter Libby was the only person charged for a crime wholly unrelated to Valerie Plame through a perjury trap that would never have happened if not for the action of a rogue prosecutor like Fitzgerald.

For many special prosecutors there is a real temptation to charge someone, anyone really, to justify the enormous power and expense of running such an independent investigation. And while the newly appointed former FBI Director Mueller has broad powers to investigate whatever he sees fit, it's extremely doubtful he will suddenly include Hillary and Obama scandals in that remit.

Finally, while the GOP has opened up a can of worms with this appointment that is full of risk, there is little to no potential for reward. It's likely that Mueller will find that there NO EVIDENCE of any Trump Russia collusion. Not one shred has been presented thus far despite months of leaks and investigation. And Mueller's appointment won't stop Democrats from fabricating new charges or repeating old lies about Trump. That's all they have. In the end, when Mueller exonerates Trump the Dems will just turn on him too and keep right on lying. They've gone this far to crazy town. They're not about to turn back now!

Democrats Cry Crocodile Tears After Comey Firing. Revealed Again as Naked Political Opportunists and Hypocrites!

Just months ago they were demanding that Comey be fired. Now they want to impeach Trump for doing just that!

On May 2, Hillary Clinton directly blamed former FBI Director James Comey for her loss in the presidential election:
“I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off — and the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling [and] persuasive.”  Hillary Clinton
Scores of Democrat leaders have echoed varying levels of concern or disgust with Comey since last year:

One after another, from the top down, Democrats have dumped all over Comey. Up to a week ago Democrat elected officials were still spitting poison at Comey.

"I do not have confidence in him any longer." Sen. Chuck Schumer(D-NY)
"The FBI director has no credibility." Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA.)
"My confidence in the FBI director's ability to lead this agency has been shaken." Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.)
"I called on FBI Director James Comey to resign." Steve Cohen (D-TN)

Some, like Maxine Waters, went so far as to use their official congressional web site to accuse Comey of playing into the Russian's hands. You would think Maxine would be glad Trump fired Comey. But no, Maxine saw this as yet another opportunity to blindly attack Trump and demand he be removed from office.

The flip flop is so extreme you might expect Dems to have whiplash!

Senator Schumer, who had "lost all confidence" in Comey is now demanding a Special Prosecutor. See my response below:
Comey had to go. Under him, the FBI had become politicized. Not just in the mess he created over Hillary's emails, but in how the agency ignored threats by terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston, Major Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood and Omar Mateen in Orlando. Agents hands were ties by politically correct directives that came from the top.

Democrat Base Confused

The extreme left wing base of the Democrat Party, you know, the loons who scream about Trump supporters as fascists while they assault Trump supporters, start fires and riot, demand blind opposition to anything Trump does. But sometimes even they get confused by the flip flops of elected Dems. On the Colbert show, the host Stephen Colbert was surprised that his audience cheered when he informed them Comey had been fired. Didn't they get the cue cards up telling the crowd to boo?

I don't know which is the bigger puppet: the rabid left wing base of the Democrat Party or the leaders trying to ride that hurricane of hypocrisy!

Mike's America Gives Trump "B" Grade for First 100 Days

If Democrats were not determined to block and obstruct at every turn Trump could achieve more!
After General Eisenhower won the 1952 Presidential election, President Truman said, “He’ll sit here, and he’ll say, ‘Do this! Do that!’ And nothing will happen. Poor Ike—it won’t be a bit like the Army. He’ll find it very frustrating.”
--Harry S. Truman
President Trump (I still like the sound of that) is discovering what Truman said was true. But Eisenhower never had to contend with Democrats who are taking unprecedented steps to block anything Trump does. And Ike never had to contend with Obama loyalists still in government leaking classified information and sabotaging Trump policy.

Still, Trump promised to drain the swamp and campaigned on an ambitious plan to do so. So far, the swamp is still full but there are reasons to cheer. Below are a few highlights:

Supreme Court Nominee: A

Not only the nomination of Gorsuch but the hardball tactics for confirmation are models for how to ram through what the PEOPLE elected Trump to do. It would be an "A+" but let's wait to see how Gorsuch rules on critical issues first.

Immigration: A

Since Trump was elected the flood of illegal aliens attempting to cross the border has reduced to a trickle. One estimate is a 73% drop in illegal crossings. All this is can be attributed to the President's strong stand on immigration and the visible change in leadership at the Department of Justice and Homeland Security which have made border security a priority.

The Department of Justice has also lifted the blackout on news about crimes by immigrants and is working to remove criminal aliens.

Build the Wall: D

I warned early Trump supporters that building a border wall was not so straight forward as they believed. Now they are learning why. Democrats have threatened to shut down the government if border wall funding is included in the latest budget compromise. Of course if the government does shut down those same Democrats will blame Trump.

Keystone Pipeline and Energy: A+

Energy projects long blocked by the Obama Administration have been cleared by the stroke of Trump's pen. The American energy sector is poised for great growth in the years ahead.

Repealing ObamaCare: C

Trump endorsed Speaker Ryan's establishment ObamaCare light proposal. Had that passed, Trump's grade would be "D." Voters didn't elect Trump to whitewash establishment proposals but to do the right thing. Trump threats to Freedom Caucus House conservatives whose goal is to do what we promised the voters was a low point.

Job Creation: A

Ever since Trump was elected companies have been coming forward to announce new hiring plans. Trump orders to eliminate job killing regulations will pay big dividends in the years to come.

Foreign Policy/National Security: B+

Dropping the Mother of All Bombs in Afghanistan signaled that Trump is serious about fighting ISIS. Bombing an empty Syrian airfield in the middle of the night signaled a change from Obama's Syrian appeasement but still left the monsters who gassed those children alive. Meetings with foreign leaders including China have been "A."

Trade: A

Signaling that past trade pacts will be reviewed means America is ready to put Americans first!

You might think with all those "A" grades I might have given Trump a better overall grade than "B." But we'll save a review for the next hundred days until after we see how he overcomes opposition to the wall, repealing Obamacare and what actual tax plan gets passed. Stay tuned!

P.S. Democrats give their elected leaders an "F" for being ineffective against Trump!
