Barack Obama

The Key/Obama bromance is likely to last past both of their current jobs

Don’t Johnny and Barry just make a cute couple.

Prime Minister John Key has just attended a dinner hosted by President Barack Obama in the East Room of the White House.

It was for leaders in Washington attending Mr Obama’s Nuclear Security Summit.

Mr Key said he sat between leaders of Hungary and Poland.

He had a brief chat to Mr Obama and was due to have a longer talk to him tomorrow where one of the subjects would be TPP, he told the Herald after the dinner.   Read more »

Bill Clinton tells the truth inadvertently

No, not about Monica Lewinsky but about Barack Obama:

Monday night in Spokane, Wash., former President Bill Clinton praised his wife, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, by contrasting her to what he called “the awful legacy of the last eight years” under President Obama.

Although a Clinton spokesperson has since walked back Bill’s apparent gaffe, that couldn’t have gone over well at the White House — or, at any rate, at the mansion in Cuba where President Obama was staying just then — but Clinton was right. Barack Obama has left an awful legacy, and the next president, whoever it is, will have a lot to deal with. Fortunately, the next president — whether it’s Hillary, Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, or even Bernie Sanders — will probably be a better president.

For one example of Obama’s “awful legacy,” we need look no further than the terror attacks this week in Brussels. These attacks, which killed dozens and injured close to 200, were perpetrated by the Islamic State, the group that Obama once disparagingly called a “jayvee team.”   Read more »

And the World’s Best Gun Salesman is…still Barack Obama

Obama83

Barack Obama continues to be the world’s best gun salesman:

The FBI reported on March 1 that February was the 10th straight month of record-breaking gun with 2.613 million firearms-related background checks performed by the agency.

According to the Associated Press, February’s firearms sales topped the previous record, set in 2013, by more than 300,000 checks. In the first two months of 2016, there were nearly 5.159 million checks run through the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System.

“That’s more than half the 10,036,933 checks run in all of 2006, just a decade ago,” writes Stephen Gutowski, a staff writer for the Washington Free Beacon.    Read more »

Did Obama create Trump?

Simon Heffer at The Telegraph explains that after 7 years of being run by a clever incompetent the voters are revolting.

The morning after Barack Obama was elected, in November 2008, I put the television on in my hotel room in New York to watch the reaction. Fox News was putting on a brave face, though the sourness and anger were barely contained: but MSNBC, an avowedly liberal network, was in a state of almost convulsive ecstasy.

As dawn broke a woman, interviewed outside her run-down house somewhere upstate, shed tears while telling an interviewer what the victory meant for her. “I now know,” she sobbed, “that my house won’t be foreclosed on.” I hope she was right: but the evidence of the seven years since Obama the miracle-worker took office suggests she may have been disappointed.

America was angry after two terms of George W Bush. Though he could not stand, his party’s candidate would be punished for how Mr Bush and the lunatics around him had made America an international pariah. The financial crisis of 2008 – the collapse of Lehmann Brothers came between the conventions and polling day – was the last straw.

John and Barry are mates; no wonder the left are unhinged

No wonder the left wing are so unhinged; not only is John Key stealing their policies he is also stealing their icons.

A senior United States official has confirmed President Barack Obama will try to visit New Zealand this year.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands Matt Matthews said the President would visit “schedule permitting”. Obama would be only the third US President to visit if he makes it.

A New Zealand visit has been on the President’s radar since Prime Minister John Key’s last visit to the White House in 2014 when Obama told media: “We are going to be working with my schedule to see what I can come up with – if not this year then certainly before the end of my presidency.”

This is the last year of Obama’s presidency, with elections scheduled for November.

Matthews said Key and Obama had a “very close relationship, real friendship in fact”.   Read more »

Daesh behead 14-year-old boy for being an apostate

Truth Revolt reports:

A 14-year-old Syrian boy missed Friday prayers at a mosque in the city of Jarablus and, for that reason, he was beheaded in front of his parents by members of ISIS.

This death sentence was applied after an ISIS-led Sharia court decided the boy was guilty of apostasy, reports ARA News. A civil rights activist in the city told the news agency that the beheading was carried out in public:

Dozens of people attended the brutal execution, including the victim’s parents who were forced to witness the beheading of their own son.   Read more »

White House admits its $100 billion in aid to Iran will be used to fund terrorism

I wonder if Murray McCully is happy about this? He trumpeted the Iran deal to the world..and now we find out that Obama’s government will likely be funding terrorism as a result.

The Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran will provide $100 billion in sanctions relief to one of the world’s biggest funders of terrorism. Now, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that it is highly likely — “expected” even — that the Islamic Republic will use sanctions relief money to continue its support of terrorism around the globe.

The Free Beacon reports:

“The thing that’s important for people to recognize is that critics of this agreement often exaggerate the value of the sanctions relief that Iran will obtain, and they often overlook the rather severe economic priorities that are badly underfunded inside of Iran.”  Read more »

Government scuttles Obama visit rumours

The government is scotching persistent rumours that the world’s greatest gun salesman is coming to New Zealand.

There are no plans in place for Barack Obama to visit New Zealand, the Government says, despite local rumours that he could be lining up a round of golf in Northland.

Duty Minister Michael Woodhouse said “at this stage” there were no current plans for what would be a historic visit.

“The President is always welcome to visit New Zealand, however there are no plans in place for that to happen at this stage.”

There have been rumours in the local community near Northland’s exclusive Kauri Cliffs golf lodge that Mr Obama could be considering a May visit.

The President will travel to Japan in May for a Group of 7 summit meeting, with likely extra stops during that trip including Vietnam.   Read more »

The world’s greatest gun salesman is a crier and a liar

Barack Obama came out and proposed a slew of anti-gun executive actions and in between bouts of tears he managed a few lies.

The Washington Post‘s Fact Checker assessed President Obama’s claim made during his tearful speech on gun control when he said that the rules for buying a gun over the Internet is different than buying one in person.

The final score? Two Pinocchios. (That means it was “half true,” according to their scale.)

“Obama erred,” states the Post, which is a nice way of saying he lied.

Here is WaPo‘s explanation:

This is a difficult claim to assess because a lot depends on how one reads Obama’s remarks: “The problem is some gun sellers have been operating under a different set of rules. A violent felon can buy the exact same weapon over the Internet with no background check, no questions asked.”   Read more »
