Terrifying Video Of Obama Surfaces, It’s Worse Than We Thought

Image result for Terrifying Video Of Obama Surfaces, It’s Worse Than We Thought

Our country has been having a serious issue lately when it comes to “fake news.” Both sides of the political spectrum are guilty to some extent of creating and distributing fake news, but a video of former President Barack Obama has just surfaced that will change the way people see fake news. Take a look at the video below in which you can see what appears to be former President Barack Obama saying that President Trump is a “total and complete dipsh*t.”

If you watched the video all the way until the end, you saw the screen split and actor/comedian Jordan Peele pop up, voicing the words that appear to be coming out of Obama’s mouth. Of course, Peele is a far-left Hollywood actor, so he is playing the blame game, claiming that conservatives are the ones feeding fake news to the American people. Peele paired with Buzzfeed News to create the video, which they explained was made in 56 hours. A video effects professional helped the BuzzFeed team make the video. The problem with it is the clear bias. They are right about one thing, however. This “Obama” video does prove that fake news comes in all forms, from falsified details of stories to totally fake videos which are created using voiceover effects, which means that someone with some technical ability could potentially destroy the reputation of any individual simply by literally putting words in their mouth. (No pun intended.)

Imagine if an angry lib decided to create a video like the “example” video above about President Trump. What if the video was made to look like Trump was resigning from office or made to look like he threatened to bomb Russia? Can you imagine the repercussions of such a video? If someone were to create a fake video of President Trump declaring war on Russia or threatening to bomb them, it could likely provoke an attack on the United States. Fake news has the power to put our country at risk for nuclear war. The possibility of this kind of outcome is extremely worrisome, and should scare all Americans, not just politicians. The lives of all Americans are all at risk here, not just the careers of Washington officials.

So, if there is one thing that Jordan Peele and the staff over at BuzzFeed are right about is that fake news is extremely dangerous. Maybe we should fill in our friends over at CNN just how dangerous fake news really is.

Senate Puts Forward Bill To Put Mueller Above President Trump … That’s When McConnell Puts His Foot Down

Image result for Senate Puts Forward Bill To Put Mueller Above President Trump … That’s When McConnell Puts His Foot Down

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dodged a bipartisan effort that would protect special counsel Robert Mueller and his job on the Trump investigation. McConnell explained that he would not be holding a floor vote on this piece of legislation, even if the Senate Judiciary Committee approves it next week.

McConnell explained that the bill is important because President Trump won’t be the one to fire Mueller.

McConnell stated while appearing on Fox News, “We’ll not be having this on the floor of the Senate.”

The Senate Majority Leader’s comments came during a time of serious opposition to the bill amongst members of his own caucus. Multiple GOP senators explained that they feel that the bill is unconstitutional, while other senators felt that it just isn’t good politics to tell President Trump what to do, even comparing the piece of legislation to “poking the bear.”

The piece of legislation was introduced last week, around the same time that Trump publicly condemned Mueller. Trump had stated that the investigation being conducted by Mueller is “an attack on our country.” He also called the probe “corrupt.”

President Trump has also considered firing the man overseeing the Trump investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

It was only a day after Trump’s critique that Republicans Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina put two bits together that they had introduced last summer in order to protect special counsels. The bill was introduced by the two Republicans along with Democratic Sens. Chris Coons of Delaware and Cory Booker of New Jersey. Then, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, explained that his committee would be voting on the bill.

Associated Press reported:

The legislation would give any special counsel a 10-day window to seek expedited judicial review of a firing, and would put into law existing Justice Department regulations that require a firing to be for “good cause.”

Democrats immediately jumped on the legislation, but many Republicans have been cool to it.

At least three of the 11 GOP members of the Judiciary panel have said they will vote against it and another five have said they have questions about its constitutionality. Grassley is one of those with concerns, but said he felt obligated to hold a vote.

Republicans off the committee had questions too — and some acknowledged that it could be politically difficult.

On Tuesday, South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds stated that the President should be the one to make the decision on his own. He also stated that Trump should be the one responsible for the consequences that come along with the decision.

“I think having Congress tell him what we believe he should do in this case is simply poking the bear, and I’d just prefer not to do that,” Rounds stated.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Lankford felt that the bill was a “political distraction.”

“You create this whole constitutional political stir over something that is not going to happen,” he stated.

Other lawmakers felt that there really was no point.

Louisiana Senator and a member of the Judiciary panel, John Kennedy, explained, “It’s about as popular as cholera with the leader in the Senate and it’s about as popular as malaria in the House,” said Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary panel. “I think most people think we’re picking an unnecessary fight with the president.”

Coons, who is a lawyer, felt that the multiple courts have enforced very similar statues for special counsels in the past. He stated, “If I were convinced this were unconstitutional, I would not be moving it.”

During a hearing for the two separate bills in September, prior to them being combined, scholars were split about whether or not the bills were constitutional. Some had big concerns about letting the judicial branch have this kind of authority over an executive decision.

FBI IS BRACING FOR IMPACT: INSPECTOR GENERAL ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE FOR REPORT

Inspector General

The DOJ inspector general, Michael Horowitz, will release the long-awaited report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation in May, according to Catherine Herridge of Fox News. 

Horowitz wrote about the release in a letter to Senator Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. He said that the report, which began in January of 2017, has been extended because of “potentially important additional information and documents that recently came to our attention, and the interviews they have required us to conduct.”

Horowitz continued, “my expectation is that we will issue our report in May, absent any new developments.”…

The inspector general has apparently focused on political bias and how evidence was handled in the Clinton email case. According to the Washington Post, the report will also look into McCabe’s possible failure to pursue a probe into the Clinton case. 

The IG has looked at why Andrew McCabe, the #2 official at the FBI, did not act on a request to examine a load of Clinton related emails for three weeks while in the latter stages of the 2016 presidential campaign. 

Horowitz has been asking witnesses why FBI leadership seemed unwilling to move forward on the emails found on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) until late October, three weeks after they were first alerted to them.

A prominent question is whether McCabe or anyone else in the FBI wanted to avoid action until after the November 8th election. The investigation seemed to stall right at McCabe’s desk. Some within the FBI felt McCabe had repeatedly moved to hinder that probe and were suspicious of his motives for doing so, according to people familiar with the case.

Horowitz released a report last week which revealed that McCabe lied under oath to FBI investigators about approving the leaks to the Wall Street Journal. And according to that report, a WSJ reporter had information claiming McCabe had issued a stand-down order related to the Clinton Foundation probe. 

Will even more heads roll at the FBI when this report is released? What do you think Clinton’s response is going to be?

George H.W. Bush was at Barbara’s side until the very end

George H.W. Bush was at Barbara’s side until the very end

Until her dying breath, President George H.W. Bush held his wife’s Barbara’s hand, a family spokesperson said.

“He held her hand all day today and was at her side when [she] left this good earth,” the former president’s chief of staff Jean Becker said.

The former first couple had been together for 73 years — since meeting as teenagers on the eve of World War II — and the ex-president is now leaning on the support he’s receiving from loved ones, in the wake of Barbara’s death Tuesday at the age of 92.

“Obviously, this is a very challenging time. But it will not surprise all of you who know and love him that he also is being stoic and strong and is being lifted up by his large and supportive family,” Becker said.

George H.W. and Barbara Bush were the longest-married couple in presidential history. They far outdistanced the 54-year union of John and Abigail Adams — who like George and Barbara Bush, had a son serve as president.

Melania will join the Clintons and the Obamas at Barbara Bush’s funeral on Saturday but White House will not say if Trump is going

The late Barbara Bush's funeral will be attended by first lady Melania Trump (pictured) her spokeswoman said on WednesdayThe late Barbara Bush's (pictured) funeral will be attended by first lady Melania Trump her spokeswoman said on Wednesday

First lady Melania Trump will travel to Texas this weekend to attend the private funeral services for former first lady Barbara Bush.

CNN first reported Trump’s travel plans.

‘Mrs. Trump intends to pay her respects to Barbara Bush and the entire family at the funeral on Saturday,’ Mrs. Trump’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham told DailyMail.com.

The New York Times reported that the Clintons and the Obamas would be attending the services as well.

Reporters will not be allowed to attend Bush’s private funeral service alongside the current first lady her spokeswoman also confirmed.

‘The event will not be pooled as this is about paying tribute to Mrs. Bush,’ Grisham said.

Trump is following in the footsteps of her predecessors, most recently first lady Michelle Obama, who attended the funeral services for former first lady Nancy Reagan in March 2016.

Hillary Clinton, in her position as first lady in 1994, attended the services held for the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

President Obama did not attend Reagan’s funeral, as he was already scheduled to attend a Democratic Party fundraiser in Austin held in conjunction with the South by Southwest festival.

But President Bill Clinton eulogized Kennedy, calling her a ‘remarkable woman whose life will forever glow in the lives of her fellow Americans,’ according to the New York Times’ account.

‘God gave her very great gifts and imposed upon her great burdens,’ Clinton also said. ‘She bore them all with dignity and grace and uncommon common sense.’

The White House has yet to say whether President Trump will join the first lady, nor have spokespeople returned requests for comment regarding whether additional figures from the Trump administration plan to attend.

The funeral will take place at St. Martin’s Church in Houston, where Barbara Bush was a longtime member.

On Friday, the public can pay their respects to Bush at the church from noon until midnight.

In an interview Wednesday, former first lady Laura Bush hinted that first lady Melania Trump had tried to bury the hatchet between the two families by inviting her to tea at the White House

And then Saturday there will be a private service with approximately 1,500 guests, including Melania Trump.

The dynamic between the Bushes and the Trumps – despite being members of the same political party – is an awkward one, as President Trump is widely credited with killing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s 2016 campaign, labeling the late Barbara Bush’s son ‘low energy.’

During the primaries, in a rare interview, Barbara Bush told CBS she didn’t know how ‘women can vote for someone’ like Trump, pointing out comments he had made about then-Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly.

In an interview on Fox Business Network on Wednesday morning, former first lady Laura Bush suggested that Melania Trump had made overtures to try and bury the hatchet between the two families.

‘She invited me to tea at the White House,’ Laura Bush said. ‘She’s a beautiful woman, and very very lovely.’

‘And I think she’ll, I think she will do really very well,’ Laura Bush said of Melania Trump’s handling of the first lady’s duties.

Anti-Trump Coup Enabler, Rod Rosenstein, Facing Impeachment – Role In Uranium One Cover Up No Longer Secret

The fish stinks from the head down.  And the head of the rotting fish that is the DOJ’s oversight of the out-of-control special counsel’s investigation is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein found himself in charge of the DOJ while Senate Democrats slow-walked Jeff Sessions’ confirmation.  He wasted no time sending President Trump a letter recommending that the new president fire the corrupt FBI Director, James Comey.

Then he turned around and appointed a special counsel to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice for … firing Comey.  He also added in a Russia collusion investigation into the mix with full knowledge that the pretext for it was based on a phony dossier that he knew was filled with lies.

As a corrupt U.S. Attorney he conspired with then FBI Director Robert Mueller to bury a Uranium One probe that had revealed evidence of money laundering, bribery, extortion, and kickbacks so that Hillary Clinton could make good on her deal to receive $145MM from Russian interests in exchange for transferring 20% of Uranium One to those same interests.

Once Rosenstein had control of the DOJ, he seized his first opportunity to take down President Trump, in what he viewed as an act of self-defense for himself and the deep state criminals who are counting on him to destroy Trump before he destroys them. 

The special counsel he appointed is Robert Mueller, the same Robert Mueller he had conspired with more than a decade earlier. 

Awfully incestuous don’t you think?

To Rosenstein’s (as well as Mueller’s) shock and dismay, Mueller despite being given broad latitude has found nothing with which to derail President Trump.

This leaves them in the crosshairs of House and Senate committees charged with performing oversight over the Justice Department and the FBI.  And this is where Rosenstein has clearly overstepped his legal authority.

The oversight committees have requested documents under Rosenstein’s control and he has refused to turn them over.  He’s missed one deadline after another.  And, now they’ve had enough.

With the midterms looming, and Republicans trailing in the generic ballot, the need to act to save their jobs appear to have finally gotten Republican members of Congress to get off their asses if they have any hope of saving their jobs this November.

This morning Texas congressman Louie Gohmert, who has been a staunch supporter of President Trump from the beginning, called for Rosenstein’s impeachment during an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo.

The significance of Gohmert’s call to arms should not be underestimated.  What type of country gives controlling power, without any oversight of any kind, to a police agency? 

It’s almost impossible to conceive how far we’ve strayed from the balance of powers that our Framer’s conceived.  We now more resemble Russia under KGB control than that shining city on the hill that they envisioned.

Here is the entire interview:

FBI’s Unethical Raid of Trump Lawyer’s Office Has Already BACKFIRED on Mueller In a Huge Way

Following Monday’s FBI raid on the home and office of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, a poll was released by Rasmussen. This particular poll found that American voters are becoming more and more suspicious of the “Trump/Russia collusion” investigation, and are starting to think that there was more to the motivations behind it’s inception.

President Trump’s insistence that the entire thing was a “witch hunt” may be proving to be true after all, and things aren’t looking so good for special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation. Out of 1,000 likely voters who were polled, less than half of them believed that Robert Mueller’s investigation is characterized as an “honest attempt to determine wrongdoing,” Rasmussen found.

In the meantime, a much higher number of people polled feel that it is a “partisan witch hunt,” vs the amount of people who felt this way back in October when a similar survey was conducted.

Neither one of the polls makes the Democrats look good, and it’s definitely not doing any favors for the mainstream media’s attempts to try and impeach President Trump.

Rasmussen reported“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe Mueller’s investigation is an honest attempt to determine criminal wrongdoing, but that’s down from 52% last October. Forty percent (40%) now consider Mueller’s probe a partisan witch hunt, an eight-point increase from 32% in the earlier survey. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.”

It’s beginning to look like the FBI raid on Cohen’s office is going to backfire on Mueller in a big way, but only time will tell just how big.

Lawmaker Drafts Articles Of Impeachment For Disgraced Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Friday that a lawmaker has drafted articles of impeachment for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. 

“Fox has learned that articles of impeachment have been drafted for Rosenstein..though not filed. It is not clear which lawmaker drafted the articles…or if they would go anywhere in cmte or on the flr,” tweeted Pergram.

This story is developing.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Rosenstein is prepared to be terminated from the Justice Department.

In those conversations, he has repeated the phrase, “Here I stand,” a reference to Martin Luther’s famous quote, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Coincidentally, former FBI Director James Comey, whom Rosenstein fired, repeated the same phrase to President George W. Bush in a conversation that has been widely reported and that Comey describes in his forthcoming book.

One source who spoke to Rosenstein said he seemed fully aware he may soon lose his job and was at peace with the possibility, confident he had done his job with integrity.

Rosenstein has said in recent private conversations that history will prove he did the right thing by firing Comey in May 2017, claiming that the American people do not have all the facts about what led to his decision to write the memo that led to Comey’s dismissal, the sources said.

One source told The Wall Street Journal that Rosenstein’s firing is “a matter of when, not if.”

The report comes after Trump and Rosenstein met for what the White House described as ‘routine Department business.’

This week, Trump hammered Rosenstein for extending the FISA warrant on Carter Page. Read More @ Gateway Pundit

Judge Who Refused Trump’s Request For a Review of Legally Protected Materials Seized in FBI Raid of His Lawyer Officiated George Soros’ Wedding

The ‘New World Order’, and it’s face, George Soros, have decided to completely uncloak and stop even pretending to abide by the law.  What happened today will echo in history …

The Gateway Pundit Reports: Kimba Wood, the federal judge overseeing the Cohen-Trump case rejected Trump’s request for a temporary restraining order on materials seized after KGB FBI agents raided Cohen’s properties. 

FBI agents raided Cohen’s home and office looking for dirt on Stormy Daniels and seized attorney-client privileged communications between Trump and Cohen.

On Friday, President Trump was officially granted intervention in the Cohen case.

Late Sunday night, President Trump opposed allowing the government to review materials seized by FBI KBG agents in their raid of Michael Cohen’s properties in a court filing.

Federal Judge Kimba Wood made her decision on Monday.

She rejected Trump’s request for a temporary restraining order.

ABC reported:

A federal judge rejected a request from President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a temporary restraining order that would have kept federal prosecutors from reading files seized in raids last week.

Judge Kimba Wood said a government taint team can weed out privileged documents, but she left open the possibility an independent third party could play a role at a later time, in the interest of “the perception of fairness.”

“I have faith in the Southern District prosecutors, that their integrity is unimpeachable,” Wood said.

Her ruling came at the end of a hearing attended by Cohen and Stormy Daniels, who sat feet apart but did not appear to interact.

How’s this for a fun fact? The same federal judge who just rejected Trump’s request for a temporary restraining order, officiated George Soros’ wedding in 2013. Read More @ Gateway Pundit

Confirmed: Obama’s HUD ‘Misplaced’ $2 Billion In 2016

It was just confirmed on Monday by a government watchdog group that the Department of Housing and Urban Development allowed roughly $2 billion in federally insured loans to go to around 10,000 borrowers who were banned from these kinds of funds.

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s inspector general, these loans in question were handed out back in 2016 to 9,507 borrowers. These borrowers were either delinquent on federal debt or they did not pay child support when they were supposed to.

The inspector general was in charge of reviewing 60 of the almost 14,000 loans that Federal Housing Administration closed back in 2016. They found that more than 75% of the loans were granted to borrowers who were barred from these funds.

The report read, “FHA faced a higher risk due to an increased likelihood of default on the ineligible loans.”The report also stated that the borrowers had a delinquency rate that was “twice as high as those of the general population.”

The inspector general’s report explained that the guidance of the agency stops all lenders from allowing FHA-insured loans to go to borrowers who have delinquent federal debt.

Western Journal reported:

The source’s lenders used “to identify ineligible borrowers lacked sufficient current information, and FHA did not adequately guide lenders on reviewing child support,” the report said.

HUD requires lenders to check borrowers against an agency database of federal debtors, but the IG found it “was not an adequate source of information on delinquent federal debt,” the report continued.

Meanwhile, the Department of Treasury houses a “Do Not Pay Business Center” used to identify potentially ineligible borrowers, which other agencies can use at no cost. The IG used the center to identify the delinquent borrowers in its report.

“The Do Not Pay databases used for our testing included information on the delinquent federal debt that was missing from” HUD’s database, the report said.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development also enforced that lenders must check all borrowers’ credit reports.

“Credit reports also were not an adequate source of information on federal debt and delinquent child support,” the report further explained.

All debts that were owed the the Small Business Administration as well as to the Department of Justice did not show up in these credit reports. The inspector general also found that student loans weren’t always included.

None of the reports said whether or not the student loans that were listed were private or public.

The report read, “All of this information was included in the Do Not Pay databases for the loans tested.”

The inspector general recommended that the FHA include the “Do Not Pay” database during the underwriting process.

Take a look at Western Journal’s video report on the matter:
