Charles Barkley to Trump voters: "Look in the mirror and say, 'My life sucks because of me' "

charles barkley
Sorry Charlie. I don’t take life advice from someone who said republicans have “lost their minds.”
From Seattle Times: Charles Barkley is weary. He was never a fan of Donald Trump’s, even before the election, but now he’s tired of “this turmoil every single day – the tweeting, the hiring and firing.”
In an interview with David Axelrod on CNN’s “Axe Files,” Barkley was angry with those voted for Trump, saying that the president’s message had resonated with voters “who just won’t look in a mirror and say, ‘My life sucks because of me.’ “
I’ve never been more angry and disgusted at this situation than I am now. This turmoil every single day – the tweeting, the hiring and firing.
“Dude, I’m blessed, and you are, too,” he told Axelrod. “Like, it really ain’t gonna have a big effect on our life. But I actually have humanity. I want everybody to have a good life. I want everybody to have a good job. I want their kids to go to school, I want their kids to be safe. I want everybody to have economic opportunity.
And I want to make sure we don’t forget about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which Trump tweeted about ending Sunday), our public schools. I don’t want to forget about those poor people in Puerto Rico. I was watching the news last night, and still, six months out, they don’t have power. And we don’t even mention them anymore. We’re wasting all our time on Russia and Stormy Daniels. It’s ridiculous.”
Barkley also felt that the president “has done an awful job of trying to be inclusive,” partly because of his emphasis on building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Do we have some bad Hispanics? Of course, we do. Do we have some bad Muslims? Of course, we do. But I believe the majority of the Muslim people in this country are amazing, hard-working people,” he said. “The president has done an awful job of trying to be inclusive.”
Barkley believes that “there’s only economic opportunity if you’re rich” and that voters were looking to blame others for economic disparity.
“I think he reached a demographic who just won’t look in a mirror and say my life sucks because of me,” Barkley said. “So every person who can’t get a job says yes, he’s right, that some Mexican has taken my job. I’m like, well, wait, ‘Did you want that job, No. 1? Or did you put yourself – did you work hard enough, educate yourself enough to get – deserve that job?’ So it’s easy to blame somebody.”
Barkley, who has toyed with the idea of running for political office, campaigned against Roy Moore in the Senate race in his native Alabama last year. Campaigning for Doug Jones, he told Alabamians bluntly, “We’ve got to stop looking like idiots to the nation. I love Alabama, but we’ve got to draw a line in the sand. We’re not a bunch of damn idiots.” Jones won the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“We have spent the last year talking about Russia every single day,” Barkley told Axelrod. “Now we got Stormy, now we got another girl (Karen McDougal), and I’m sitting here saying, ‘When are we actually going to help the people?’”

Trump's hacked voicemails reveal hypocrisy of media

On December 12, 2015, a day after “declaring war” on Donald Trump after he announced plans to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., members of Anonymous, the loose group of hackers and activists, hacked into Trump’s voicemail and took his website offline for around an hour.
Trump is now attacked and reviled by the media for his stance on issues such as illegal immigrants and Muslim refugees, but his voicemails show that the same media were singing his praises in 2012.
Ministry of Truth
Matt Broomfield reports for the (UK) Independent, March 5, 2016, that Trump’s hacked voicemail messages from 2012 “show leading figures in the US media showering him with praise, compliments, and thanks for his financial support.” Those leading figures include MSNBC news anchors Joe Scarborough, Mike Brzezinski, and Tamron Hall.
Scarborough and Brzezinski had cross-examined Trump on several occasions during the Republican primary campaign. Both can be heard in the voicemails profusely thanking Trump for his donation to a charity event:

  • Scarborough says: “We are so, so grateful for everything, Donald, and we just want to call you and tell you how much it means to us.”
  • Brzezinski also thanks Trump for his donation, saying, “You must be, like, on your jet or something. We’d love to talk to you.”

A woman identifying herself as “T Hall”, believed to be MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, can be heard on the recording saying she was going to use Trump’s discount in a luxury clothing store. She says: “I celebrated by going to Gucci, and I’m going to use your discount, because there’s a green dress that’s like $3,000, and I need a discount bigger than . . . my discount.”
Reacting to the hacked voicemails, Scarborough sarcastically confirmed the authenticity of the messages in which he can be heard speaking. He writes: “Oh my God. I just read the transcripts! Trump must have contributed to a children’s charity. Scandalous!!!! Should Mika and I now apologize for raising money for children’s charities from rich people?”
Barack Obama’s aide David Axelrod can also be heard thanking Trump for donating to his epilepsy charity. Other celebrities who can be heard speaking in a friendly, personal manner to Trump include American football star Tom Brady and boxing promoter Don King.

The many astounding coincidences of Obama

Coincidence?

By Don Fredrick
June 26, 2013

[The essay below was originally published as “Just Happened….,” in The Obama Timeline, Sept. 30, 2012.]

Any one of these ‘coincidences’ when taken singularly appear to not mean much, but when taken as a whole, a computer would blow a main circuit if you asked it to calculate the odds that they have occurred by chance alone. Sit back, get a favorite beverage, and then read and ponder the Obama-related ‘coincidences’ … then super-impose the bigger picture of most recent events i.e. Fast and furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal and the NSA revelations … then pray for our country.

Obama just happened to know 60’s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Mrs.Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.

Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for MalcolmX, who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.

Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happened to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happened to have no concern exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.

After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul “the Red” Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama’s $25,000 salary at IAF just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.

Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and just happened to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who just happened to be a long-time friend of Obama’s political hatchet man, David Axelrod.

Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who just happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama just happened never to hear because he just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his “most enthusiastic,” and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical, and just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.

Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.

Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firm’s Judson Miner just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers. In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks(Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to spread nationwide, and which just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.

In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the “New Party,” which just happened to promote Marxism, and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.

In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who just happened to be the gay choir director of Obama’s Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, just happened to be murdered, and both murders just happened to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and just happened to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.

In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel “will never see a day of peace,” and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children’s dance whose performances just happened to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” and there has been “genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis,” and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.

In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hull’s sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.

David Axelrod blames the NRA for Chicago’s gun violence issues

Daily Caller: On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former Obama advisor David  Axelrod said that Chicago’s problems with gun violence would be greatly improved  if tougher gun control laws were passed at the federal level.
Axelrod cited a CBS poll from last week that showed some  deterioration in the public’s support for stricter gun laws, but noted a portion of the poll that showed strong support for universal background checks.
“I’ll tell you what I find remarkable, and not just that 90 percent, including 86 percent of Republicans support background checks. But now they’re  going after the trafficking laws — 86 percent of Americans support the  background checks, expanded background checks. And more than 90 percent, 86 percent of Republicans.”
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was astonished by the week-old statistic.  But Axelrod went on to argue that it was lobbying efforts from the NRA  responsible for “young lives in places like Chicago.”
“I just want to say this — I come from the city of Chicago,” Axelrod said.  “We know we have had a violence problem there. A lot of it has to do with straw  buyers arming street gangs. There is no doubt and every law enforcement person will tell you that stronger trafficking laws combined with universal background checks would make a real difference.
“People are afraid of the NRA and trading their jobs for young lives in places like Chicago,” he continued. “And it is a terrible blight. You know,  hopefully people will step up and do the right thing. It is extraordinary to  have all the country on one side and the Congress on the other.”
Chicago already has some of the strictest gun control laws yet it does nothing to stop gun violence and gangs. But that doesn’t matter to Axelrod. Typical liberal, push for more control when existing controls don’t work. And blame someone else when the controls don’t work.

Displeased with poll numbers, Obama sics lawsuit on Gallup

The POS’s “presidency” is nothing but a criminal syndicate of thugs.

After Gallup released its recent poll findings showing Americans view Mitt Romney as better equipped than the POS to handle the economy and the federal budget deficit, the POS’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod contacted The Gallup Organization about the company’s research “methodology”. When Gallup declined to “adjust” their methodology – SURPRISE!!! — the company was named in a lawsuit by the Department of (In)Justice.

Breitbart News reports, Sept. 6, 2012, that Axelrod’s complaint lies with varying predictive models for 2012 turnout. Gallup had predicted a lower minority turnout, thereby affecting Obama’s margin against Romney.

An email chain from Gallup employees titled “Axelrod vs. Gallup” reveals that the White House “asked” a senior Gallup staffer “to come over and explain our methodology.” Another senior Gallup official said he thought Axelrod’s pressure “sounds a little like a Godfather situation”:

 “Imagine Axel[rod] with Brando’s voice: ‘[Name redacted], I’d like you to come over and explain your methodology…You got a nice poll there….would be a shame if anything happened to it…’”

After Axelrod expressed his displeasure with Gallup, the DOJ suddenly became interested in an old allegation by a former Gallup employee that the firm violated the False Claims Act by overcharging on their contracts with other federal agencies. Michael Lindley, a former Gallup employee and former field organizer in Iowa for the 2008 Obama campaign, filed suit against Gallup in 2009. In 2010, Gallup responded to Lindley’s suit.

In addition to Gallup’s unfavorable polling numbers on the Obama re-election effort, they have also published employment numbers that are not “politically helpful” for Obama.

Obama's Dog and Lover Fly In Own Jet

The Obama reelection campaign won’t debate substance because of his sorry record for the past 3+ years as POTUS, so the campaign has gone to the dogs, literally.
On Tuesday, Obama’s chief campaign strategist and senior advisor David Axelrod tweeted a picture of his boss and his dog, Bo, in a presidential limo, with this message:

“How loving owners transport their dog.”

The message was an obvious jab at Romney, whose wife Ann had told a family anecdote about how the Romneys took a roadtrip to Canada in the 1980s with their dog Seamus in a kennel strapped to the roof of the car.
Conservative bloggers and talk-show hosts have fought back, noting that Obama wrote in one of his autobiographies that, as a child in Indonesia, he had eaten dog meat. But the real story, forgotten by conservatives, is this:

In July 2010, when the Obamas flew to Maine for a vacation, Bo the dog was flown in a separate plane, thereby wasting thousands of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars.

Below is a post I wrote on this at the time, on July 18, 2010, as a reminder of the real scandalous dog story in this election year.
~Eowyn

Bo, the most pampered dog in U.S. history — at taxpayers’ expense

As Rome burned, Emperor Nero played the fiddle.
As of 4:43 am, west coast time, Sunday, July 18, 2010, the U.S. national debt was $13,204,759,696,170 and increasing by the second. Debt per citizen was $42,628 and increasing by the second. Debt per taxpayer was $119,360 and increasing by the second.
But Obama and family flew to Bar Harbor, Maine, for their THIRD vacation since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil well exploded on April 20.
Arriving at the airport before the Obamas were first dog Bo and Obama’s “special assistant/personal aidegay lover, the aptly named Reggie Love in their own small jet plane.
This is how Wikipedia describes Love: “As Obama’s aide, he has to anticipate any and all of Obama’s needs.”
Yes, we can! — and we’re footing the bill! That is, the 60% of Americans who actually pay federal income taxes.

Reggie and Barry


Reporting from scenic Bar Harbor, Maine, reporter Rebekah Metzler of the Morning Sentinet writes on July 17, 2010:

Earlier Friday, the Obamas were greeted by Gov. John Baldacci and U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud, D-2nd District, when they arrived in Trenton about 12:25 p.m.
The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black capris, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents.
Baldacci and his wife, Karen, presented the family with gift bags full of Maine-made goodies, including baskets made by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, popcorn from Little Lad’s Bakery in East Corinth, iconic L.L. Bean bags, University of Maine ice hockey hats, and an assortment of other Maine foods and books. Karen Baldacci said the bags for Malia and Sasha contained one loon toy and one chickadee toy that sound their natural calls.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci. “We’re ready. We’re going to do it all,” Love said with a big smile.
Air traffic at the small Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton was shut down for the presidential arrival. A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter patrolled the air in anticipation of the first family’s touchdown, and a pair of local fire and rescue trucks stood ready on an otherwise empty tarmac at the private air hangar.
The Obamas then traveled onto Mount Desert Island in a motorcade of at least 16 vehicles. It was led by two Maine State Police cruisers and included five black Chevrolet Suburbans.

Democrats seek to pin credit downgrade on tea party

From the Wasington Times

What a Boob


While continuing to cast doubt on the credibility of Standard & Poor’s, several Democrats on Sunday said there is an even greater culprit in the downgrade of the nation’s credit rating: the tea party.
“I believe this is, without question, the tea party downgrade,” Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, a day that also saw mounting anxieties in world markets over the downgrade among myriad other economic woes worldwide. Some of the world’s top financial ministers issued a joint statement Sunday night committing themselves to preserve the stability of financial markets and their economies.
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, used the exact same phrase in dubbing the credit rating drop the “tea party downgrade,” as Democrats tried to position themselves as reasonable, pragmatic leaders and conservative Republicans as irresponsible ideologues who caused the downgrade by refusing to accept any new taxes.
That’s exactly the kind of blame game that led Standard & Poor’s, one of three key credit-ratings agencies, to strip the U.S. federal government of its AAA status Friday night and reducing it to AA+ for the first time in the nation’s history.
“Congress and the administration are jointly responsible for the conduct of fiscal policy. So, this is not really about either political party,” David Beers, the head of S&P’s government debt-rating unit, said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
