In an interview with NPR Obama put on his serious face and declared “We need to take action” in response to alleged Russian hacking:
President Obama vowed that the United States will “take action” in response to Russia’s believed interference in the presidential election.
“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections, that we need to take action and we will — at a time and place of our own choosing,” Obama said in an interview with NPR set to air in full on Friday.
“Some of it may be explicit and publicized, some of it may not be,” Obama added.
More tough talk from obama. Another red line. One wonders why he didn’t hold this interview on the fake news site The Daily Show. obama has long known about the Russians trying to hack the US.
Walmart is selling Black Lives Matter clothing and other items amid calls to designate the movement as a hate or terrorist effort. The retailer has banned sales of items bearing a Confederate flag, and an “All Lives Matter” bumper sticker saying it was “offensive.” Some of the Black Lives Matter clothing items also have the word “Bulletproof” on them. A search on the huge retail corporation’s website shows a wide assortment of clothing and other items bearing the text “Black Lives Matter,” and there is even a Black Lives Matter monthly pocket planner for sale. The retail giant recently faced media controversy when three of its employees in Georgia refused to bake a peace officer a cake for his retirement. Breitbart News reported in late September that the police officer’s daughter showed the bakers a design that said “Blue Lives Matter” with a blue line through the middle of the cake. Employees said it was racist. Her father was retiring after 25 years of service. A spokesman for the company later apologized for the incident. In June of 2015, Walmart had to apologize after one of its stores in Louisiana baked a cake decorated with an ISIS flag after it had refused to make one bearing a Confederate flag.

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
Under Barack Obama, arguably the most influential – and insidious – White House official has been a frustrated novelist named Ben Rhodes, the Deputy National Security Advisor responsible for strategic communications.
In an appalling profile in the New York Times last May, Rhodes actually acknowledged using his post to manipulate the “27-year-old know-nothings” in today’s media. With the help of this so-called “echo chamber,” he admitted to misleading the American people and their elected representatives about things like the disastrous Obamabomb deal with Iran.
In the starkest of contrasts, Donald Trump has tapped my friend, Dr. Monica Crowley, to replace Rhodes at the NSC. She is not only one of the best communicators in America today. Her extraordinary intellect and personal integrity have made her for years among the most respected and trusted patriots in public life.
Feels like “Morning in America,” again.
