I keep waiting for Swampy or zmz to come to Barack Hussein Obama's (aka Barry Soetoro) rescue on this.

Iran’s supreme leader lashes out as hard-line regime teeters amid spreading protests

Iran’s supreme leader lashes out as hard-line regime teeters amid spreading protests. Iran’s supreme leader lashed out at the Islamic republic’s “enemies” as the death toll from widespread protests rose to at least 20 and the theocratic regime faced its biggest internal threat since 2009.

The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their ‘pockets.’ The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday.

"President Obama made it clear that he was going to stand behind the Iranian regime," Dershowitz said. "He was going to send them lots and lots of money. Of course some of it was their own money, but still they used it to foment terrorism, to export terrorism around the world."

BHO (IMHO) is one of the most arrogant, smug Presidents the US has ever had. He and his academician friends and cronies that occupied the White House for eight years with the aid of a fawning Press Corps did a lot of damage and it's still having consequences. Paul Hornung, who once remarked that he'd gone through life on a scholarship, has nothing on this guy.

I love the socialists' argument that it was Iran's money, so we had to give it back to them. My ass, all is fair in love and war, and terrorism is war! Socilaists feel better if they give people things, even if it messes up the big picture... don't get me started on entitlements.

Don't let the facts get in the way of your hatred of all things Obama, fellas--it was their money and we were obligated to give it back.. Had the case gone awry in The Hague, it could have been $10 Billion:

Okay it was their money, so why was it given to them in such a surreptitious way? Why not do a presser ahead of time to announce it, and spin it in a positive way? Why was it not announced with the other Iran, worst deal ever?

In the end the entire Obama deal with Iran is a farce, and we should have kept the sanctions, and the money isolated.

Obama the Fool

What a fool Obama was to give Iran money that is being used for terrorism and not for the people of Iran. What a fool Obama was to negotiate with Iran who is behind North Korea's nuclear program and will soon share their fruits. Do you think funding Hezbollah and Hamas and illicitly dealing with North Korea makes Iran a good country to deal with and give bookoo money to? Even Iran's own people don't like their leadership. Duh?

So Mich you would rather have taken the chance to have been ordered to give them $10 Billion by The Hague instead? Yeah that makes sense.

Iran's Frozen Money Unfrozen by Obama's Bad Nuclear Deal

For years, Iran had tens of billions of dollars worth of funds that were languishing in banks, unable to be used, because of global sanctions. That changed with the lifting of some sanctions on Iran as part the deal Iran struck to place restrictions on its nuclear program.

There had been some concern that Iran might use the money it recoved to fund opponents of U.S. policy in the Middle East, including the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, the Palestinian militant group Hamas, and the Syrian government. Many experts thought it was more likely that Iran would primarily use the money to shore up its flagging economy and create jobs.

Turns out the money was used to fund opponents of U.S. policy in the Middle East, including Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah the Palestinian militant group Hamas, and the Syrian government. Now the people of Iran are angry and want their leaders removed. It was a very bad move by Obama.

OMG Swampy - This is an epic swing and miss for you.

In 1986, the US withdrew from compulsory jurisdiction of the ICJ (International Court of Justice) or World Court at The Hague as it is sometimes called. No president since has changed that position.

As such, the US can choose not to accept any decision of that court. Under the UN charter, such a position can the appealed to the UN Security Council. However, as a permanent member of the Security Council, the US can veto anything that comes before it - something the US would have surely done if such an item showed up there.

Any award to Iran by the ICJ would have been ignored by the US - and there is not a thing Iran could have done about it. There was no "chance" to worry about. Obama was just a fool for putting cash on pallets and shipping it in an airplane in the middle of the night. He could have easily done a wire transfer. He just didn't want a money trail - and he got caught shipping the cash. Of course, Iran wanted cash so they could bribe and distribute it as they wished. Obama bent over for Iran because he wanted the Iran nuclear deal so badly and this was a way to help close the deal. The whole thing just stinks.

Iranian protesters 'ready to die' for regime change, thank Trump but want more support

Iranian protesters 'ready to die' for regime change, thank Trump but want more support.

As fierce protests continued across Iran for the sixth consecutive night Tuesday, among the thousands taking to the streets were those who widely appreciate words of support from President Donald Trump – and hope for more substantial support.
“Here is real hell,” a 31-year-old protest leader in Tehran, who Fox News will identify only as Azi, said in a telephone interview during the early hours of Wednesday morning. “This is a real revolution against the mullahs. Iran is uprising. I thank Mr. Trump for his support, but we need more.”

Lavish Obama Center hits mounting opposition in Chicago as profs blast plans, 'socially regressive' ideas

Lavish Obama Center hits mounting opposition in Chicago as profs blast plans, 'socially regressive' ideas.

But in an open letter published Monday, more than 100 University of Chicago professors and faculty members said they share the concerns of a wide range of neighborhood and activist groups that “the Obama Center as currently planned will not provide the promised development or economic benefits to the neighborhoods” on the South Side of Chicago.
They complain that since the center will be located near an existing museum and the University of Chicago, there will be no land to start new businesses or restaurants nearby.
“We are concerned that rather than becoming a bold vision for urban living in the future it will soon become an object-lesson in the mistakes of the past,” the letter says.

I read that the Obama Center may be illegally taking public park lands from Jackson Park and converting them into private use. We will see, hopefully it all works out.

Why don’t you try reading the link and ask yourself if Drumpf would ever do something so considerate for someone else as Obama did for that young man?

The answer is NFW.

For starters, Obama was talking about Libya, a situation that Cameron allowed to become a "sh*t show" while Trump disparaged all of Africa and Haiti by describing them as "sh*tholes."

In my link, Obama showed unbelievable kindness to a uoug man on his last day of work at the WH, something Trump is incapable of doing.

General, it was a rehearsed PR moment, nothing more, nothing less. In fact, Obama's entire Presidency was rehearsed. It's why post-press conference questions - if any were taken - were screened...or only taken from 'trusted' MSM reporters.

Nice defense.

So now you want to state there is a difference between calling a situation a ****show, while you can't call a place a ****hole. I get it now.

Are you really going to argue that Trump is incapable of showing the kind of kindness that Obama did to that young man?

That’s not my opinion; it’s a proven fact.

No it's not. As discussed on the CBS news this morning, Trump received the 1986 Ellis Island Award for diversity, blah, blah, blah.

Swampy I searched around a bit and found this. Its an interesting read, he comes across as a pretty genuine person. Here is a cut-and-paste showing one of the most generous example:

"He paid off a guys mortgage my dad works with (mechanic bus line in city) because he offered to work on a broken limo in the dale, he didn’t know it was trump’s.

The driver asked guy to slip in his license through window crack, the guy scanned it and a few days later thinking nothing of it just being a nice guy, banker comes in garage and says Mr. Trump just paid off your house… thanks for helping him in the limo."

I have also heard that Trump is very nice in person at times.

A story from my next door neighbor: a guy is doing business with Trump...Trump makes the guy sign a bunch of legal papers that basically prevent the guy from ripping off/jobbing Trump...guy did not want to sign the papers but had to, otherwise Trump told him no deal.

After the papers were signed, Trump was extremely nice and offered to help the guy in any way possible.

Obviously though, there are other stories that paint Trump in a worse light.

I am sure that Trump has behaved well in some situations, and not so well in other situations.

But, to paint him as a total jerk all the time is just not at all accurate.

5 Trump Acts of Kindness

5 Trump Acts of Kindness:

1. The time he gave sanctuary to Grammy Award winning singer Jennifer Hudson after three of her family members were murdered:

2. Airlines wouldn't accommodate a boy who had serious medical issues, so Trump offered his jet to help:

3. He helped save a family's working farm that was going into foreclosure.

4. After Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was released from a prison in Mexico, The Donald sent him a big check to help get him back on his feet.

5. What Trump did for a bus driver who helped save a woman from jumping off a bridge. After hearing about what Barton did, The Donald sent him ten thousand dollars.

It's pretty compassionate to give 90% of American workers a significant tax break on the order of about $1000 avg. That is a lot of acts of kindness.

I wish that the mean Democrats would make it into a permanent act of kindness rather than wanting to put the screws to the middle class ten years from now. Every time that the Democrats in the House and Senate vote against the middle class tax cut, I imagine them with little Hitler mustaches.

Creating an economic atmosphere that has led to historically low unemployment among Latinos and African Americans is an amazing act of kindness. When I see Democrats trying to prevent that from happening by doing anything they can to stop Trumps economic plans, I think of them as a bunch of Joseph Stalins trying to impose their Socialist ideology on us all.

I think that all Democrats need to take a mental health test due to their illogical and erratic behaviors.

I love the new era of ridiculous rhetoric.

Forget about some piece of legislation. I'm speaking in terms of a genuine, random act of kindness that was done when no one was looking. You will note that the young man that Obama treated so kindly was the one who made it public. Obama did not tweet about it or make any reference to it.

General, the fact that you have pictures of this so called 'random act of kindness' proves it was a PR stunt. Random acts typically can't be documented with photos because they are, by definition, RANDOM! And because Obama used the recipient's native language when presenting it, the PR stunt was obviously REHEARSED...which, again, proves it wasn't RANDOM.

Have you ever seen or read anything about this in the press?

No.

Why is that?

Because it was a private moment between Obama and Mr. Lee on his last day of work at the WH. The only reason we know about it is that Mr. Lee decided to tweet about it.

The fact that Obama greeted him in his native language made it that much more meaningful.

You do know that photographers basically record everything that happens in the Oval Office right?

Trump’s Random Act Of Kindness Is Leaving Everyone Stunned

Trump’s Random Act Of Kindness Is Leaving Everyone Stunned

Bouvet’s father is battling cancer, and they have been in need of money to continue the cancer treatments.
So while at the concert, Bouvet was escorted by a Secret Service member to meet the president himself! Upon meeting, Bouvet called his father, and Trump got on the phone to speak with Bouvet’s dad. Then Trump proceeded to write a check for $10,000 for the chemotherapy treatments.

Obama Made Us Weaker

Trump is trying to increase military spending. Obama made the military weaker. He did nothing to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons. By stripping the military of funds, Obama only made the USA weaker.

In short, the situation President Trump inherited is dire. America today faces an array of threats more serious and complex than at any time in the past 75 years.

President Obama and his policies are largely to blame. The 2011 Budget Control Act, which mandated across-the-board cuts, known as sequestration, at a time when threats were growing, has also done serious damage. “No enemy in the field,” Mr. Mattis told lawmakers, “has done more to harm the combat readiness of our military than sequestration.”
What have eight years of Mr. Obama’s policies, and six years of the Budget Control Act, wrought? The military superiority America relied on after the end of the Cold War has been seriously eroded, our capabilities diminished. In the past three months alone, military leaders have testified that:

Louis Farrakhan and Obama Together

A photo released this week shows former President Barack Obama with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan during Obama's years as an Illinois state senator -- The photographer revealed Thursday that the Congressional Black Caucus had pressured him for more than a decade to keep it hidden ... Askia Muhammad told the Trice Edney News Wire last week that he believed that the image "absolutely would have made a difference" in the 2008 presidential campaign had it been made public.

Muhammad also said that Obama had, at some point, people from the Nation of Islam working on his staff and in his offices.
“In fact he had people from the Nation of Islam working on his staff and in his office in the Chicago, his Senate staff. The members of the Nation of Islam helped him in his Senate campaign and on the South Side of Chicago.”

Why did the photo have to be hidden? If it had been revealed, Askia Muhammad said he believed Obama would never had been elected president. The Congressional Black Caucus sure wanted the photo hidden. The photographer revealed Thursday that the Congressional Black Caucus had pressured him for more than a decade to keep it hidden ...

I have a hard time believing that it would have made a difference. Democrats and BO's supporters knew of his close relationship to Farrahkan and voted for him in spite of it. I doubt another picture would have made a difference. If there was a picture of BO smiling alongside an ISIS executioner, Dems would still support him.

Well now that you mention it. Especially when considering you like to bring up how President Trump drinks his water. Or how CNN dedicates a whole segment on how much Diet Coke he drinks, or if Sanders really made the pie she took a picture of.

Probably right. If it had been revealed, the Democrats would have praised Obama for being so inclusive.

Dershowitz: I Wouldn't Have Campaigned for Obama If I Knew About Farrakhan Pic . Harvard Law Professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz said he would not have campaigned for then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) if he knew about the future president's photo op with Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, is a "virulent anti-Semite and anti-American," Dershowitz said on "Fox & Friends."

The Hillary Coverup Was Done to Protect Obama

Hillary was cleared in her e-mail transgressions. Was it ever really about Hillary? No, it was actually about protecting Obama. Obama was e-mailing Hillary on a non government server. Some e-mails had classified material. Obama e-mailed Hillary under an anonymous name and Obama knew the e-mails were not going to a .gov address. So Obama, despite his lying, knew Hillary had a non secured e-mail address. The non prosecution of Hillary was really about protecting Obama who was actually an accomplice with Hillary in her e-mail fiasco. Could the coming Memo revelation actually also address this issue?

WTF? What far right rag did you get that idea from? Clinton was absolved in the “but her emails” imaginary scandal because there was nothing to find. It had nothing to do with Obama and no, Devin Nunes BS memo has nothing to do with Obama either.

Absolved before she was even interviewed. FBI agent dismissed from Mueller probe changed Comey's description of Clinton to 'extremely careless' from 'grossly negligent' to avoid prosecution. Of course Obama could not have been behind changing the outcome because "he didn't care if anyone knew" he was e-mailing Hillary classified information onto a unsecure server, even though Obama knew what she was doing was against regulation. Of course, Obama denied knowing anything about this.

You don't "bleachbit" e-mails about yoga and a wedding. You don't smash your cellphone sim card with a hammer in the garage unless you have something to hide. Now, we know there really was no "investigation"by the FBI.

You guys are forgetting one fact: if Comey doesn’t come out 11 days before the election and say he’s reopening the investigation, Trump doesn’t get elected.

That’s not conspiracy theory that’s fact.

Does the former staff writer know the difference between 'fact' and 'speculation'?

Fact - The only reason Comey came out 11 days before the election and say he's reopening the investigation is because the NYPD was going to spill the beans about the found e-mails. It was to save his own face.

Comey - Obama's Man

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing."

Figure I need to brush up on watergate." The next day, Nov. 14, 2016, Page wrote, “God, being here makes me angry. Lots of high fallutin’ national security talk. Meanwhile we have OUR task ahead of us.”

So, the President was aware of Russian election meddling and that the FBI was investigating it... and wanted updates.

In light of what we know was happening within the FBI through the texts of these two, I would be very interested in knowing how involved Obama was in the details of the Clinton e-mail and Clinton/DNC funded dossier investigations.

We want to be very sure that Presidents do not obstruct justice, right ZMZ?

Not quite, ZMZ; according to the article he wanted updates on the Clinton e-mail investigation, not necessarily the "Russia" probe. Perhaps he was worried that his own e-mails to her "home brew server" would implicate him in national security breeches. In any event, grab some pop corn, this should get very interesting. Methinks the DNC, HRC and BHO may actually begin to sweat now.

Of course Obama wanted to be updated on the Russian hacking of Clinton and DNC emails.

He was the President.

Where or when has Trump exporeseed any concern about Russian hacking of emails???

Oh yeah that's right: "Wikileaks...I love Wikileaks!"

Where did he do that? Citation needed.

As opposed to Trump who is a walking textbook example of Obstruction of Justice? And before you ask, Google it.

Sure. Lock him up if he actually obstructed justice

But it’s simply not a plausible interpretation of the September 2, 2016 text exchange that Obama was seeking a briefing on the Clinton email investigation. FBI Director James Comey closed the Clinton email investigation on July 5, 2016. It was not reopened until October.

Just more nonsense

Comey - Obama's Man

I think it was said before, the line when Rush says, "But the point here is that this is about protecting Obama. All of this is. It was Obama that was policing, directing, informing, permitting the spying and whatever else happened to Donald Trump and his campaign."

Barack Obama said, "I cannot not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line."

Watch from 10:00 to 11:26 on this video:

Texts released today:

“Checkout my 9:30 mtg on the 7th,” Strzok texted Page.

“I can tell you why you’re having that meeting. It’s not what you think,” Page responded.

“TPs [talking points] for D [Comey]?” Strzok asked.

“Yes, bc potus wants to know everything we are doing,” Page said.

Sounds like it was referring to the Clinton probe.

It's unclear from the texts what exactly Strzok and Page were referring to with the apparent talking points for Comey. According to the Senate report, the text raises questions about Obama's involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

Also on Sept. 2, 2016, though, the FBI released a full transcript – with redactions – of its interview with Hillary Clinton as part of the email probe, along with a memo summarizing the bureau’s investigation of her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
After the mention of “potus,” Strzok alerted Page to “NYTimes.com breaking,” which could have been the report, “FBI Papers Offer Closer Look at Hillary Clinton Email Inquiry.”

Both were corrupt situations, so it would be disturbing if he knew of the details of either situation. Hopefully, he was not driving the corruption.

What are you talking about? A sitting President wanting to know everything about Russians interferring with our election?

That's his f*cking job!

And you guys worship Trump, who refuses to do anything about Russia because he is in their pocket.

Are we sure about that? RCL is saying that BO wanted to know about the HC investigation.

This is a link to the portraits of every President.

https://www.whitehousehistory.org/ga...tial-portraits

I sincerely hope that the posted portrait of President Obama is not going to be placed along side of these others. Although the artist is African-American, years from now I can hear people crying that the artist was racist and made the first black President look cartoonish compared to past presidents.

I'm not a fan of impressionist art to begin with, but it definitely should not be invoked when doing a presidential portrait.

When I saw this post I thought it was somehow a joke to pick on Swimpy, but my god now I see news stories on this and find out this picture is real?

What the hell are they thinking? I guess making a mockery of the presidential portraits is the perfect ending after what he did to this country for 8 years.

I thought those pictures were someone mocking the Obama's, but I suspect they could be real. Bizarre stuff, so sort of fits their legacy.

Did anyone notice that BHO appears to have six fingers on his left hand? I guess it's in keeping with his "57 States" comment. BTW, the portrait artist commissioned by the Obamas seems to have a rather odd portfolio of paintings depicting the beheadings of whites. Perhaps BHO met him at one of Reverend Jeremiah White's gatherings or Louis Farrakan's meet and greets.

If Indigo Montoya sees this, there may be trouble.
His father was killed by a 6 finger man.
When he finds that man he will say "Hello, my name is Indigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Anyone who has read my posts knows that I am fairly conservative in my views. Not surprisingly, I was less than impressed when I saw the roll out of former President Obama's official presidential portrait. I found the artwork to be less than presidential, especially when you juxtapose it against similar portraits of Democrats such as Truman, Kennedy, and Carter. But to each his own, right? After all, it is HIS portrait. Then I heard something about the artist's other works involving the severed heads of European (aka, white) women. Must be an internet rumor, right? Nope, 100% true. Surely there must be an explanation, right? Well, there is.

The artist (Kehinde Wiley) has painted not one, but two paintings re-imagining the biblical story of Judith and Holofernes. For those, like me, who aren't up to speed on the book of Deuteronomy, here's the gist: Nebuchadnezzar (king of Babylon) sent one of his generals (Holofernes) to whup up on the Israelites since they wouldn't worship the Neb-zar as a god; Jewish widow, Judith, roofies the Holo-man and lops off his nugget, saving the Israelites. Ok, got it. Biblical basis, popular motif throughout history (seriously, there are like thousands of paintings about this). Except there's something about it that's just, so, uncomfortable.

Wiley is trying to be provocative, I get that. I actually don't hate the paintings themselves. I appreciate the artwork, the use of color in both, and the historical reimagining. What I can't get past is the blatant racist undercurrent. There is obvious hatred here. Wiley chose to reimagine Holofernes (in both paintings) as a white woman. Why? Is he conveying female African American anger towards interracial relationships that reduce the number of eligible African American males for same-race relationships within his racial demographic? Is he conveying a genocidal desire to eliminate the mothers of those of European descent? Or is his Holofernes really a transexual and he is calling for the guillotining of European transgendereds? I welcome any apologists' rebuttal.

For America's first black president who so many thought would move us into a post-racial era, his decision to have this particular artist paint his legacy just confirms what I felt for eight years.

Viperstick the art critic, out...

Meanwhile, Lumpy Hannity posted the ridiculousness found below.

He insinuated (wrongly) that there were "hidden sperm" in the portrait. How do I know he was wrong? Because Lumpy got played by some white supremacy posters at 4Chan that's why!

The worst part about BHO's presidency is that he should have brought the country together, when he oversaw it's utter division. Unfortunately, that division continues today. People want to blame DT for division...not the case, the division started on BHO's watch and continues today.

The artist said he painted Hawaiian flora in the background to celebrate Obama's growing up there. Problem is, according to my wife, who can identify plants with her eyes closed, these were all common flora, and none specific to Hawaii.
