Asking for a friend.
Asking for a friend.
But here, in 2020, it keeps going, and gaining momentum. It hasn’t gone away. And the other outrages since then have made it almost seem normal for a president to be gay with a transgender husband. Other outrages include crisis actors, all 57 genders, Adrenochrome and the Lolita Express, Anthony’s Weiner, the most powerful men in the world gathered each summer for a gay boys camp at Bohemian Grove. So a Mr. and Mr. Obama have (sadly) become thinkable. (Perhaps Joan Rivers didn’t have to be silenced after all.) So then the DNC’s seeming franchise of Murder Incorporated seems plausible, too! Like the infamous Clinton “Arkanas Flu,” there is a trail of mysterious deaths leading back to Obama, and the coverup of his lifestyle.
When I first came onboard with FOTM, I had no idea how much I was going to be challenged to rethink my presumptions. This is one of those things. Dr. Eowyn has taken some heavy criticism for her bold reporting of things which might seem inconceivable. And yet, the longer I have known her the more I trust her judgement. Bravo Dr. Eowyn!

For readers unfamiliar with what FOTM has posted on Mooch being a pre-operation transgender, here are the relevant posts:
Like him or not, everyone should be impressed with Donald Trump’s success as President of the United States and how much he has helped America and its citizens. Thinking about the amount of Trumps success and his lack of experience as a politician, the first thing that comes to mind is , “what was Obama doing, besides creating problems, while he was in the White House”. He reminds me a lot like that guy that sleeps on the couch. He doesn’t work and is in the way. Lies about what his plans are or what he was doing that day. Up in your personal business and causes problems in your relationship/household. Does not know when to go away. Acts like he is your friend while he steals from you. In the end you are going to be out of some cash.
It looks as if every duty a president has to do, Trump does better than the rest. This is not entirely true. I did find one thing Trump will never be able to do as well as Obama. Obama was better at giving tax payer money to other countries.
Most Americans are not aware of how much money our country gives to other countries as Foreign Aid. Some think it’s 25 % of the yearly budget. I would say it’s more around 1%. I base that on the data that is available. I wouldn’t bet my life on it but I think I’m pretty close. I thought I would take a look at how much Foreign Aid Obama gave his first year budget and compare it to Trump’s first year budget. Since the budget is already made by the preceding president we will be using Obama’s 2010 and Trump’s 2018 to compare. The data will come from USAID.
USAID has been responsible for reporting U.S. foreign aid as defined under Section 634 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended. In the summer of 2003, USAID built a data repository to track all foreign assistance activities funded by the U.S. Government and fulfill two international aid reporting requirements of the U.S. Government: (1) Publication of the annual U.S. Overseas Loans and Grants (informally known as the Greenbook) for Congress and (2) the U.S. Government’s Annual Assistance Report (USAAR) to the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This data repository evolved into the USAID Foreign Aid Explorer (FAE), a resource for information on all U.S. foreign assistance funding and implementation, from over 70 U.S. Government departments, agencies, sub-agencies, and offices. In addition to fulfilling the two U.S. Government reporting requirements, the FAE helps USAID respond to stakeholder and public inquiries regarding U.S. foreign aid, the Foreign Aid Explorer website and ForeignAssistance.gov.
Here is a list of the reporting Agencies. This will give us the total all Foreign aid the USA provided for each year.
In the upper half of the image below we have Obama’s 2010 budget. It’s 48 billion dollars given to 224 countries. Around 30% went to military aid and the remainder went to economic aid. Below that Trump’s 2018 budget. It’s 28 billion dollars given to 193 countries. Around 2% went to military aid and the remainder went to economic aid. Obama nearly doubled Trump. For those that are not aware. The smaller the numbers here, the better. This is where we want to save money, not give it away. We can only hope Trump does not get better than Obama, when it comes to giving taxpayer money to other countries.
Below are Obama’s remaining yearly foreign aid budgets. 2016 is incomplete because eleven of the 22 departments did not submit their reports.
While we are here, let’s take a look at how much Obama and Trump gave Russia in their first year budgets. Obama at around 506 million and Trump at around 154 million.
Below is Obama’s remaining yearly foreign aid given to Russia.
Tell me again, Who colluded with the Russians? I’m not surprised that this information does not get any exposure. with the left it’s anything but reality.
In the images you will see “obligations”. The actual disbursements might be a little higher or lower. They are close enough so it really doesn’t make a difference which one I used. You will also see the word “activity”. This is exactly what the aid was used for. Below is a screenshot of Obama’s 2010 foreign aid total. You will notice where it says “activity” are the 10 largest aid recipients. At the end of this article I have provided a link to where you download all foreign aid activity from 1946 to the most recent year.. Or if you want click on the second link I provided to view online.
Something I find interesting is that USAID(website where I got this information) was audited. They seem to lost 450 million dollars. USAID reports to congress. Why has congress not made a big deal out of this?
There you have it. The only thing Obama does/did better than Trump. Waste American taxpayer money.

In the late 1990s, a man was elected president in Colombia who rescued the nation from the grip of a murderous leftist organization called the FARC. The result was a nation that now has a thriving economy, and is considered safe for travelers. President Uribe is a devout Catholic, who governed according to Christian principles. His legacy is a modern miracle.
But now, as if he hasn’t done enough to destabilize the world, Obama has sent John Kerry to meet with the FARC leadership at their headquarters in Cuba. ~ TD

Defend your 2nd Amendment rights.
We need them now, more than ever.
This is an insightful comment about Obama and America…
Food for thought.
Obama is going rogue. By every metric the Obama economy is melting down. We are seeing the beginning stages of another recession at best, or a total economic meltdown at worst.
At the moment there are no decent paying jobs in America. Obama has opened the border and given amnesty to at least 5 million illegal aliens already in the country, thereby putting them in competition with working class and middle class Americans.
Think I’m wrong? Did you know the government is giving businesses a $3000 incentive to hire illegal’s over native-born Americans?
Did you know cities are hiring non-citizens (and even illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama) as policemen? All you need is a work permit. Someone here illegally can wear a badge and enforce the law against you.
Did you think the border crisis was over? Obama’s amnesty has encouraged a new wave of poverty-stricken illegals at the border.
And, in a bankrupt nation with over $18 trillion in debt, Obama has used amnesty to give illegals access to food stamps, free healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, earned income tax credits…and by issuing drivers licenses and Social Security cards they will be able to vote immediately (because States don’t have the technology to tell the difference between a legal citizen or a noncitizen, legal or not).
The Obamacare fiasco gets worse by the day. The middle class is being bankrupted by skyrocketing increases in their health insurance premiums; hospitals are being bankrupted by the flood of illegal aliens accessing services; and the economy will drown in the new debt caused by Obamacare.
Obama’s claim that ISIS is on the run is a proven fraud, ripped bare by America’s embarrassing military withdrawl from Yemen.
Obama is going nuclear in his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, force-feeding the world a weak nuclear agreement with Iran that is so bad, even France is fighting for stronger sanctions. Meanwhile Obama threatens to become the first president in history to abandon Israel at the United Nations.
But, I haven’t gotten to the bad part yet. Is it possible the terrible news about the economy, the border, ISIS and Israel is all just a distraction? Because the really important news is that Obama has created a modern-day version of “the Gestapo.”
The Obama government is using an initiative called “Operation Chokepoint” to force legal businesses it doesn’t like out of business, by threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors.
At the same time, the Obama government is urging banks to call the police to report citizens who withdraw $5000 or more from their own bank accounts. Yes, I said banks are urged to call the police, when you withdraw your own money.
This comes at the same time that FEMA announced it will no longer provide FEMA disaster relief funds to states whose Governors deny “climate change.”
And let’s not forget Obama used an FCC party-line vote to take over the Internet and institute sweeping new changes to a system that is working perfectly as the form of communication for most Americans.
Obama’s first goal is clearly massive new taxes on Internet usage, just another way to destroy the middle class and redistribute income. But is his real goal controlling communications on the Internet- specifically the anti-Obama criticism and anti-government message so prevalent on the Internet.
But let’s circle back to the most Gestapo-like Obama initiative ever. It’s called “Operation Chokepoint.” This is your government’s attempt to put morality controls (just like those in Iran) on the American public by shutting down gun stores, precious metals companies, casinos, tobacco distributors, telemarketers, and short-term money lenders.
How can they close legal businesses you ask? By threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors to close accounts for businesses the government doesn’t like. Just like an Iranian Ayatollah, if Obama doesn’t like your business, he will “choke off” your ability to stay in business. Hence the name, “Operation Chokepoint.”
Never forget Obama has been on a 6-year long relentless crusade to raise our taxes and take away our tax deduction for charitable donations, choking off contributions to churches. Yes, Obama is trying to “choke off” the funding that keeps churches in business too.
Why is this happening? First, because Obama despises capitalism. He needs to put prosperous businesses out of business. By murdering the middle class’s ability to prosper, he creates his utopia of equality (ie “shared misery”), making everyone dependent on government in a classless, socialist society. Think Cuba and Venezuela.
Second, there is an obvious reason Obama hates these particular industries. The subtitle of my 2009 book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian” says it all. The subtitle was “Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” Is it a coincidence that virtually every item I mentioned is under attack?
The businesses on the list of “Operation Chokepoint” are all dominated by people that Obama would describe as capitalists, patriots, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Christians and supporters of the Constitution. Not coincidently, those are the same groups targeted by Obama in the IRS scandal.
And then of course, if Obama can’t close your business, or “choke off” your ability to prosper, he can force banks to call the police if you dare to withdraw money from your own account.
Folks this is eerily reminiscent of The Gestapo, or the Soviet KGB, or the East German Stasi.
Is this the America you want? The NSA spying on your every move…the federal government in charge of your healthcare and now your free speech on the Internet…the IRS auditing enemies and critics of the government…the federal government forcing legal businesses they deem “unacceptable” out of business…and banks spying on their own customers and being forced to call the police when customers withdraw too much of their own money.
Yes, under Barack Hussein Obama the Gestapo is alive and well in the former “Land of the Free.”

New York High School Tells Kids to Pledge Allegiance to “One Nation Under Allah.”
MARCH 20, 2015
Making some parents furious, a Pine Bush, New York high school courted controversy by teaching kids to recite our national Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic even changing “one nation under god” to “one nation under Allah.” The morning’s regularly scheduled announcements included the Arabic reading of the pledge. According to students, the announcement was greeted by catcalls and angry denunciations in classrooms throughout the school by students who felt the reading was inappropriate…
When Rudy Guliani said he thought “Obama doesn’t love America,” it set off a media firestorm. You know, those same fine ultra-liberal Americans now running the mainstream media who, while in class with me at Columbia University, cheered the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan…and who today no doubt support students at California college campuses who voted to remove the American flag…criticized Guliani for stating the obvious.
Naturally, the media decided to play “gotcha” with GOP presidential candidates and ask them if they agree that Obama doesn’t love America. As usual, GOP candidates panicked and ran away from Guliani’s statement. Well, I have the perfect answer to that question. Scott Walker are you listening?
The answer is, “I believe Obama loves America…the same way Castro has loved Cuba for the past half century. And I believe Obama loves America the same way Hugo Chavez loved Venezuela…the same way Stalin loved Russia…the same way Ho Chi Minh loved North Vietnam…and the same way the Socialist presidents of insolvent, bankrupt EU countries like Greece, Spain and France today love their country.
I’m sure Obama loves America the same way they all loved their countries and their people. Yet they managed to destroy their countries and economies. That’s what socialism, communism, or Marxism (whatever you want to name it) does. It destroys everyone and everything it touches. Ask the people of Detroit now living in an abandoned city.
It’s not a matter of patriotism. Obama may love America. I’m sure Fidel Castro would say he’s the biggest Cuban patriot ever. Castro loves his people…and he will love Cuba until his dying breath.
Yet, look at the results. Castro’s country lies in ruins. The Cuban people own nothing, not even their own thoughts or free speech. Disagree, protest, speak out publicly and the Castro brothers send you to prison to rot or die. People living in the country that Fidel Castro loves so much have spent the last half century escaping through shark infested waters in boats made of spit, glue and rubber tires. The Cuban people were willing to die to get away from the man who loves his country to death.
In all socialist countries “The state” takes care of you. “The state” knows what’s best. “The state” tells you what to think. In each and every case, all that love (and smothering state control) ruins your life.
So, does Obama “love America”? Perhaps, but it’s clear his version of love is similar to the husband who beats his wife, all the while proclaiming “I love you honey…this is for your own good.”
That’s exactly what Scott Walker and other GOP presidential candidates need to say when the media asks “Does Obama love America?” That’s the perfect answer. Watch the media turn ash white and look sick to their stomachs.
No one can prove whether Obama loves America. But I do know he is destroying America. I do know Obama is Castro.
The people I trust who have dealt with Castro…the parents and grandparents of my friends in the Cuban community…all say Obama is Fidel Castro all over again. They’ve seen firsthand the lies, corruption, fraud, propaganda, massive taxation and regulation, the tyrant saying with such sincerity that he loves his country and is here to “save” it. They’ve heard him say that everything he does is for “the good of the people.” They recognize Castro when they see him…and Cubans who lived under Castro are certain Obama is Castro.
It’s not just Castro. Every socialist tin-pot dictator is the same. They all channel Saul Alinsky. Everything they say is the opposite of the truth. Everything they say is to deceive and distract.
Everything they do is to bribe the poor with free stuff- stolen from the middle class and business owners. The politically correct name is “income redistribution.” But it’s theft. It’s the central tenant of communism and Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.”
Rip off your opposition to make them poor and redistribute the stolen loot to the dependent poor, buying their loyalty and votes. That’s socialism… that’s Castro… and that’s Obama.
I have one more recommendation to GOP presidential candidates. When asked what you think of Guiliani’s comments, tell them you’ll answer only when they’ve asked Democrat presidential candidates if they agree with Obama’s comments that Muslim terrorists have “legitimate grievances”?
Do Democratic candidates agree with Obama that “Muslim” and “terrorist” can’t be used in the same sentence? Do they agree with his use of illegal Executive Orders to make law or his use of the IRS to destroy political opponents? Do they agree that illegal aliens given amnesty should collect up to $24,000 in income tax credits even though they paid no taxes?
Do they agree that $8 trillion in new debt added by Obama could destroy our economy and our children’s future?
Tell them you’ll answer their questions when you hear the Democrats’ answer to these.
It’s time to fight fire with fire. It’s time to stop bringing a knife to a gun fight. This is war. This is a battle for the very survival of America, American exceptionalism, small business, capitalism, free enterprise and free speech.
Sure Obama loves America, just like those communist tyrants loved their country. That is, as long as they own it…control it… and fundamentally change it. So perhaps the corrupt, Marxist, Muslim sympathizer, sociopath, tyrant in the White House loves America too. You can quote me.
It’s time to speak up now, before America is gone. It’s time to stand up to evil. It’s time to stand up to bullies. It’s time to take back America from the tyrant who loves it…to death.

Celebrating Obama for the New Year!
Posted by Wayne Root on January 5, 2015
I am Obama’s college classmate from Columbia University, Class of ’83. Back in 1981 when my Columbia classmates heard my hero President Ronald Reagan had been shot, they erupted in joy. They celebrated by jumping up and down, cheering, hugging, and giving each other high-fives. They screamed, “YES! Reagan is dead. They got the bastard!” I witnessed it all, first hand. My radical leftist classmates thought a conservative legend was dead and this was cause for celebration. I remember thinking, “they are celebrating like it’s New Year’s Eve.” Afterall that’s what you do on New Years- celebrate!
That memory inspired me to write a column celebrating Obama here in the New Year 2015. Let’s not rehash the bad stuff…the disastrous stuff…the tragic stuff…the decline and perhaps even death of America at the hands of a radical Big Brother tyrant. That’s not the way to celebrate New Years. Let’s look at the bright side. You know- the glass is half full.
You might ask “What is the positive side of the Obama presidency?” Well there are a few groups that should celebrate.
For my fellow constitutional and second amendment patriots, Obama is the greatest gun salesman in history. Over 70 million guns have been purchased since Obama took office. This man opens his mouth, reads from the teleprompter, and INSTANTLY Americans are inspired to buy all-time record quantities of guns and ammo. If you’re a fan of the second amendment (or a gun dealer), Obama has been the answer to your prayers.
For my fellow fiscal conservatives and capitalists, Obama is the greatest gold salesman ever. Conservatives love gold. Gold after all is the antidote to a debt crisis and lack of confidence in a reckless or incompetent government. That’s why record sums of gold were bought during the past 6 years. Central bankers worldwide bought more gold in one recent year than in half a century (since 1964). Fiscal conservatives (and gold dealers) rejoice. Obama is a walking billboard for God, guns, and GOLD!
Obama is also the greatest thing to ever happen to print shop owners. While the rest of us are struggling to keep our heads above water, print shop owners can’t keep up with the demand for “Going Out of Business” and “Home For Sale by Bank” signs. And what about all the protest signs funded by communist groups announcing “What Do We Want? DEAD COPS.” Print shop owners Rejoice! You’ve never had it so good.
And then there are “English as a Second Language” teachers. There may be very few good jobs left in Obama’s America, but if you speak both English and Spanish, the sky is the limit. With the border wide open and Obama announcing amnesty for illegals, celebrate if you are a teacher of “English as a Second Language.” You have the most in-demand job in America for decades to come. Unfortunately, demand for prison guards may soon be even more in demand.
Obama is the greatest thing to ever happen to government bureaucrats. The future is bright if your goal is to sit in a windowless office handing out checks for welfare, food stamps, disability and unemployment, while complaining you are overworked and underpaid. With almost 20% of all Americans on food stamps alone, there’s enough work for you to last a lifetime…or at least 20 years, until you retire at age 45 and collect an obscene pension for the next 40 to 50 years for not working.
And what about the boom in basements! With Obama and his socialist cabal in control for another two years, basements are the new hip living space for young adults. At this moment 31% of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 live with their parents. Obama’s high taxes and massive regulations guarantee millions of college graduates will either stay unemployed, or underemployed in low wage jobs, forcing them to live in mommy and daddy’s basement for years to come. Basements are no longer lonely dusty places to store old furniture. In the age of Obama, they are where you store your 30 year old unemployed children.
Pharmaceutical companies are celebrating. A record 30 million Americans are dependent on anti-depressants. There would be many more, except millions of depressed Americans self-medicate with alcohol. If you sell drugs or booze, give a shout out this New Years to Obama, the greatest salesman for your products ever!
And then, of course there are the cop haters who are celebrating. To think you used to be misunderstood, hated pariahs. Today you are in favor- with Obama praising you for hating cops. He encourages you to protest, loot, burn and act like exactly what you are- idiots who have no interest in getting a job. But, no worry, this New Years you can come out of the closet, celebrate, and be openly YOU!
Unfortunately the rest of us are hiding in the closet, because you’re on the streets.
If you’re a radical Muslim terrorist, or just someone who sympathizes with radical Muslims (i.e. a Democrat) – CELEBRATE! Obama is the best thing to ever happened to you. Under Obama America has become a politically correct shell of its former self. Rest easy. No more “enhanced interrogations.” And if you’re caught, you’ll live like a king at Guantanamo, provided with a Koran, prayer rug, religiously approved food, basketball courts, and expensive lawyers. Then once you are rested up, you’ll be released back to the battlefield, ready to again cut off heads and slaughter women and little children. Obama is the best thing that ever happened to you.
If you’re Fidel and Raul Castro, celebrate Obama. By opening relations and trade, Obama saved Cuba from economic collapse and the certain death of communism. He asked for nothing in return. You get to remain a communist nation, jail your political opposition, steal the people’s income, while enjoying the prosperity that comes from doing business with America’s biggest companies. Celebrate Obama- the savior of communism- on New Years Day!
Finally we come to Vladamir Putin. He’s celebrating “like it’s 1999” this New Years. God handed him “the gift of a lifetime” in the form of Barack Obama. Obama pulled off a miracle for Putin and the Russian people. He made your bankrupt, decaying country look like a world power again. Not economically of course…but militarily. The collapse in the price of oil will wreak havoc on Russia’s economy. Even Obama can’t change that. But he made Putin significant, a leader on the world stage. He gave Russia’s demoralized military swagger again. Obama managed to put Mother Russia in the driver’s seat and America in the back seat.
The only question is…is this a coincidence, or was this Obama’s plan all along?
Yes, there’s certainly a lot to celebrate this New Years. Unfortunately it’s the enemies of America, American Exceptionalism, the American Dream, Judeo Christian Values, capitalism and cops who are doing most of the celebrating.
For the rest of us it’s two long years until we can celebrate “Obama-Free America.”
Thanks to fom reader Ken!
