REPORT: Obama’s Legacy In Shreds

For eight years Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America yet after just three years of a Trump presidency, the Age of Obama is an increasingly distant and negligible moment in U.S. history. 

Clearly, a castle built upon sand and self-obsession does not a lasting legacy make…

Via The Washington Examiner:

How did Barack Obama’s policy legacy turn out to be so fleeting and rickety?

Hadn’t Obama’s ascent transformed a nation forever, stirring the American soul and sending thrills up the leg of the commentariat? Hadn’t his election, as Jesse Jackson Jr., then in Congress rather than on parole, noted, been “so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance?”

Not just anyone can win a Nobel Prize for their “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” before ever engaging in a single act of mediation. Then again, this was a man who had promised to marshal the forces of all mankind, the men and women who’d failed to live up to his lofty expectations for the past 150,000 years, to finally start to “heal” the earth.

Bill Clinton might have felt your pain, but Obama, noted San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford in 2008, was a “lightworker,” imbued with the supernatural ability to intuit exactly what an entire nation was thinking. It was not “merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric,” Morford preached (and gushed), it was that the new president was a “rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment.” (My goodness! Compare that groveling “Obama is God” example to how the media treats President Trump.)

Obama had arrived to sort out the dismal state of human affairs. After years of American conflicts abroad, the progressive Left had finally found a leader to end our wars for oil. Here was a man who would finally inhibit the excesses of Wall Street greed that had driven the nation into the abyss of another depression. On top of all of that, Obama would dislodge the institutionalist’s candidate, moving Democrats past the Clintons forever and into a transcendent new era. He was their Ronald Reagan. Better, even.

Except it never happened. And these days, leading Democrats hardly ever mention the man, and when they do, it’s typically to grouse about something he’s either done or failed to do.

Obama Spied, Media Lied

Free Republic

Holy smoking gun, Batman!

Once you wave away all the smoke created by our dishonest media, the story of this past week was pretty simple. The Trump-Russia-Conspiracy narrative is falling apart. The Obama-Spied-on-his-Political-Opposition narrative is coming together. The media has given credence to Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff’s hysterical charges about how the Republican chair of the committee, Devin Nunes, made his latest discoveries. But Schiff is a dishonest McCarthyite, spewing insinuations and accusations without any proof to back them up. Nunes, on the other hand, has obviously gotten hold of solid intel showing that Obama spied on Trump and his people, pretty much as the president tweeted back on March 4. The willing Democrat executioners of truth —

give equal weight to the statements of both men, making it seem like the House Intelligence Committee has simply descended into partisan bickering. But that’s a lie. Nunes has found something. Schiff is smearing him and the president. Those two actions do not deserve the same sort of coverage.

I have no doubt the Russians tried to influence our election process this past year and every year before that. I have no doubt that we have done the same in other countries. It’s a legitimate news story, but not a shocking big hold-the-press news story. That the Obama Gang was using intelligence on Republicans to try to thwart a Trump administration from erasing Obama’s legacy —

that’s a huge story, a scandal almost as big as the fact that Obama used the IRS to decimate the Tea Party movement. If there were even a single honest editor at the network news departments or CNN or the New York Times, this would end with some high-level Obama and Hillary cronies doing perp walks. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Obama’s Legacy: America’s Perception of Terrorism

Family Security Matters

by LT. COLONEL JAMES G. ZUMWALT, USMC (RET)

One of Barack Obama’s first actions as president was ensuring the American public understood what terrorism does not involve.

Obama’s Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, quickly sought to dumb down the public’s perception on terrorism. While most Americans recognized terrorism as involving the use of violence and intimidation to pursue one’s political goals, Napolitano sought to impart a “kinder, gentler” perspective on it.

When asked, after addressing Congress for the first time in 2009, why she never mentioned the word terrorism, Napolitano responded it was preferable to call such acts “man-caused” disasters. She suggested doing so “is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.”

Of course, in the aftermath of years of terrorist attacks against American targets – such as the 1983 bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa, the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen and the 9/11 attacks, all performed by Islamic extremists – we thought we already had a pretty good handle as to what terrorism was and who, primarily, was responsible for it. Apparently, we did not.

Obama’s Iran Legacy Will Get Americans Killed

Secure Freedom Minute fsm logo

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

 

The so-called “Iran deal” is the gift that keeps on giving – to the mullahs. It was bad enough in its original form: utterly ineffective in preventing the Iranian regime from acquiring nuclear weapons, wholly unverifiable; and a vehicle for transferring $150 billion, with the certain knowledge that some of it would pay for terrorism.

These damning attributes were a product of serial concessions made by Barack Obama and John Kerry in the final months of the negotiations.

But ever since the deal was announced, it seems President Obama has been making fresh concessions. Ballistic missile sanctions and promised on-site inspections are gone. And now, Team Obama is giving Iran access to international banking services using dollars and rewriting regulations to free up billions more in frozen assets.

Obama’s “legacy” will get Americans killed.

Obama’s Legacy – The Threat of More Terrorism Here

The President’s Homeland Security Advisor says international terrorist groups are “planning for sophisticated and coordinated terror attacks” in this country. In fact, Lisa Monaco warned that the threats are becoming ‘broader, more diffuse, and less predicable than at any time” since the 9/11 attacks.

Call it Obama’s legacy.

Unfortunately, as former clandestine CIA officer Clare Lopez and I point out in a new book, See No Sharia, our first lines of defense against such threats have been effectively blinded to what motivates these terrorists, severely handicapping those supposed to protect us against them.

Before jihadists kill more of us, FBI, military, intelligence community and Homeland Security Department personnel must be allowed to know the truth about Islamic supremacism and the totalitarian ideology that animates it: sharia. Only then can we improve the odds of preventing the next murderous attack.

Obama’s Legacy of Endangering Americans

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

 

President Obama’s legacy is one of indifference to our security. To cite a few examples: He’s kept the borders open and, with his executive amnesty, encouraged enemies of this country – and countless other aliens – to come in.

He’s bringing many thousands of Syrian migrants here, even though they can’t be vetted for jihadist tendencies. He’s letting hardened drug criminals out of our jails, despite evidence that roughly half will perpetrate more crimes.

Now, he’s poised to bring jihadists from Guantanamo Bay to prisons, courts and communities in this country. The prisons will become still greater recruiting grounds for Islamic supremacists – some of whom may be sprung by U.S. judges while other terrorists target unwilling host communities.

At what point will Americans say enough of this President’s legacy-building at the expense of public safety? After more of us needlessly die? Or now?

Polls: Americans Have Had Enough

Moonbattery

The results are in, and they are definitive. Hopey Change is a total failure:

The recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll surely doesn’t bode well for the Obama administration, which promised hope and change on a platter back in 2008. Seventy-one percent of Americans feels that the country is going in the wrong direction. President Obama’s job approval has dropped to 40 percent–and only 42 percent approve of how he’s handling the economy. Approval on foreign policy, an area where this administration polled somewhat strongly, fell to 36 percent among Americans.

Keep in mind that as a mulatto leftist, Obama has a guaranteed floor provided by certain demographic and ideological groups that will support him virtually no matter what (the vast majority of blacks, PBS/NPR fans, journalists, etc.). He has hit that floor and is burrowing through it.

Five and half years into his “fundamental transformation of America,” a staggering 79% are dissatisfied with the political system. We are in revolution territory — or should I say, counter-revolution territory.

There’s more:

A fresh Associated Press poll is just as bleak on virtually every count. Obama’s approval is upside down (40/59) overall, and underwater on every single issue polled. He’s in the 30′s on many of them. His best number is on handling relationships with other countries, at (43/55). … Republicans held a “trust” edge on seven of the eight specific issues polled.

At least Obama appears to have gotten the taste of George W. Bush out of everyone’s mouths.

The good news is that the radicalized Democrat Party is in for a pounding in the fall, even if voters don’t like the GOP much either, probably due to its infestation with untrustworthy RINOs. Pete Wehner has the bad news:

Sustained contempt for our political system is corrosive. It undermines our affections for America.

Undermining the economy through massive debt, alienating our friends, emboldening our enemies, ushering in potentially millions of Third World welfare dependents, turning us against each other, and taking a sledgehammer to the Constitution are not the worst of Obama’s legacy. He has turned American pride into shame. If that isn’t reversed quickly, the country is doomed.

Planning Begins for Obama’s Presidential Library

Moonbattery

The nightmare will be over in just a few more years. Already they are planning Obama’s presidential library:

With Obama’s blessing, top supporters are launching a foundation that will develop and build the library, which will both house his presidential records and serve as a monument to his legacy.

We already have plenty to serve as a monument to Obama’s legacy, including:

• Governmental lawlessness • A radicalized Democrat Party • A bitterly divided population • A crippled health insurance industry • Astronomical national debt • A vastly expanded number of people dependent on the government • Deteriorating race relations • Wounded military morale • Alienated allies • An Iraq increasingly run by al Qaeda • An Afghanistan soon to be run by the Taliban • A presidential office that no one takes seriously anymore.

But the library will be nice to have, as it will make a good starting point in the search for key documents that the public has yet to see, for example:

• His state senate papers • A book proposal that apparently gave his birthplace as Kenya • His medical records • Small-dollar donors • The Khalidi tape • The real White House guest list • Countless FOIA requests • Health reform negotiations • Fast & Furious documents…

There are plenty more:

• Kindergarten records (which might shed light on Obama’s nationality) • Punahou School records • Occidental College records (presumably indicating whether he received government aid as a foreign student) • Columbia University records • Columbia “Soviet Nuclear Disarmament” thesis • Harvard Law School records • Harvard Law Review articles • University of Chicago scholarly articles • Passport • Client list from private legal practice • Illinois State Bar Association records • Baptism records • Obama/Dunham marriage license • Obama/Dunham divorce documents • Soetoro/Dunham marriage license • Adoption records • Birth certificate (not the clear fake he grudging released).

A presidential library including all this stuff would be just the trick to retroactively provide a little transparency for the most transparent administration ever.

People in Hawaii and Chicago are squabbling over who should get the library. Here’s a more appropriate location, compliments of Red State:

Obama’s Legacy: The Establishment of Lawlessness in the USA

Moonbattery

Obama has already established many legacies, including:

BS

• Radicalizing the Democrat Party, thereby alienating one half of the country from the other and deepening the partisan divide to Civil War levels of acrimony;

• Crippling the health insurance industry as a major step toward socializing medicine;

• Jacking up the national debt beyond the point it could ever be paid off without debasing the currency;

• Vastly expanding the number of people dependent on the government, pushing the country to the tipping point at which the takers outnumber the makers;

• Setting back race relations for decades with help from Black Power lunatic Eric Holder;

• Undermining the morale of the military by promoting homosexuality while rendering futile the war in Afghanistan;

• Abandoning Iraq, so that our sacrifice was wasted and those who helped us there are at the mercy of al Qaeda; • Eroding America’s role in the world by proving to our allies that they are only an election away from a knife in the back;

• Corroding the respect we have felt for an office that formerly had been held only by grownups who at least tried to be worthy of it…

I could go on, but let’s cut to the chase. The single most destructive legacy — the one that truly effects Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” of America — is what Michele Bachmann calls “the establishment of lawlessness in the United States.” The Congresswoman explains:

There was more at stake with the Defense of Marriage Act even than the sanctity of marriage. His unwillingness to wait for the liberals on the Supreme Court to strike it down is a prime example of how Obama has placed the very rule of law in jeopardy.

Only a quick and total reversal of everything Obama stands for can prevent the Last Best Hope’s decline into dictatorship.
