Democrats are accused of abusing earmarked funding to spend BILLIONS of tax dollars on ‘woke’ projects including a $436M yoga retreat in New Jersey and $1M for ‘cultural placemaking’ in LA

A decade-long ban on controversial earmarks – which allow funding for House members’ personal projects – has just been overturned. Funding requests include $4million for a science center, $407K for Native American arthritis, $436K for a yoga retreat and $250k for the Michelle Obama library

House Democrats have been accused of abusing the newly reinstated earmarks funding process to fund ‘woke’ projects in their Congressional districts.

A Fox News investigation found Democrats have requested millions of dollars in funding for pet progressive projects in their districts as part of a lavish Federal spending program. 

Earmarks have traditionally been used to pay for much-needed infrastructure projects.

But the latest funding requests include $4million for a science center in Florida, $407,000 for Native American arthritis research in Oklahoma City, $436,000 for a yoga program in New Jersey and $1million for ‘cultural placemaking’ to celebrate black history in LA.

A decade-long ban has just been overturned, allowing Democratic and Republican lawmakers to insert funding projects into appropriation bills.

Nunes says Obama was in cahoots with Russia

‘Who created this? It was the last administration’

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is blaming former President Obama for being in cahoots with Russia for eight years and setting the stage for orchestrating a conspiracy theory of collusion between Moscow and Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

“We went through a whole European infrastructure consolidation process of military installations across Europe, abandoned a lot of abilities in the North Atlantic to track Russian subs,” Nunes said. “We actually had the president of the United States, who said on a hot mic to the prime minister of Russia at the time, ‘Just tell Vladimir to wait after the election.’ That was President Obama who said that. So who created this Russian threat? Who? It was the last administration that put us in this position.”

Nunes also turned up the pressure on the Democratic Party and the media in his point-by-point refutation of the recently released memo by the House Intelligence Committee minority.

Poll: Obama ‘worst president’ since World War II

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Barack Obama the worst president since World War II. Only 8% named Obama as the best president. How the 12 post-war presidents fared:

President Obama has topped predecessor George W. Bush in another poll, but not one he would like.

In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Of course, Obama and Bush are the most recent presidents; historians will tell you that it takes decades to truly measure an individual president’s performance.

Ronald Reagan topped the poll as the best president since World War II, with 35%. He is followed by presidents Bill Clinton (18%) and John F. Kennedy (15%).

Obama received only 8% in the best presidents poll.

President Obama’s Anti-White Racism Portrait Scandal | True News – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

On February 12th, 2018, the National Portrait Gallery today unveiled separate official portraits of President Barack Obama and ex-first lady Michelle Obama. Former President Obama choose controversial artist Kehinde Wiley create his official portrait and while the quality of the artwork was widely mocked, the artist’s previous work raised significant alarm. Wiley has previously created several renditions of the “Book of Judith” Biblical story depicting Judith beheading the Assyrian general Holofernes. In Wiley’s rendition, Judith was transformed from a Jewish woman into a black woman, and Holofernes is changed from a man into a white woman. Given the clear racial overtones – why did President Obama choose this specific artist?

Bombshell: FBI Informant In Uranium One Scandal Testifies Against Obama. Here’s What He Said

“I was frustrated watching the U.S. government make numerous decisions benefiting Rosatom and Tenex while those entities were engaged in serious criminal conduct on U.S. soil.”

The FBI’s informant in the Uranium One scandal involving the Obama administration gave written testimony to three congressional committees this week in which he accused the Obama administration of making decisions that directly benefited the Russian government and their goals of gaining geopolitical advantages over the United States.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, told congressional investigators on Wednesday that Moscow sent millions of dollars to the U.S. with the expectation that it would benefit the Clintons, while Hillary Clinton “quarterbacked a ‘reset’ in US-Russian relations” in her role as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, The Hill reported.

Key facts:

* Campbell participated in closed-door interviews with the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence and House Oversight and Government Reform committees.

* Campbell said that Russian nuclear officials told him that Moscow hired an American lobbying firm, APCO Worldwide, because it was in a unique position to influence the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton in particular.

* Democrats are aggressively trying to discredit him but are having little success as “the FBI found Campbell’s undercover work valuable enough to reward him with a $50,000 check in 2016.”

Ingraham: Memo Shows Comey FBI, Obama DOJ & Clinton Campaign ‘Colluded’ Against Trump (Video)

Ingraham said the memo reveals the “real” collusion that occurred during the 2016 election, and it wasn’t between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In her opening monologue on Friday night, Laura Ingraham reacted to the controversial memo alleging government surveillance abuses.

The memo, which was released on Friday by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, contains a number of bombshell allegations, including that the FBI and Justice Department relied on the infamous anti-Trump dossier to secure FISA surveillance warrants to spy on at least one member of the Trump team.

It also claims the former British spy who compiled the dossier — which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee — had a personal animus toward President Donald Trump.

Obama-Farrakhan Photo Released After 13-Year Media Cover-up

A photograph of then-Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that was taken in 2005 at a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, DC, was released Saturday after a 13-year cover-up to protect Obama’s political career.

Journalist Askia Muhammad told TriceEdneyWire.com that he took the photograph after Obama had engaged “in a warm conversation with constituent and fellow Chicagoan Minister Louis Farrakhan.” However, he realized that the photograph could endanger Obama’s presidential ambitions, which were already being widely discussed.

Farrakhan is a black supremacist and antisemite who also holds anti-gay views. Rumors of an association between Obama and Farrakhan circulated during the 2008 presidential campaign in the wake of revelations about Obama’s decades-long membership in the Trinity United Church of Christ, led by the racist preacher Jeremiah Wright.

Those rumors could not be substantiated, however — and the story of Muhammad’s long-hidden photograph explains why.

Asia told TraceEdneyWire.com that he was confronted by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus about the photograph, and that he eventually surrendered it to Farrakhan’s chief of staff. He secretly kept a copy of the image for himself, but he never told anyone and never released the image, for fear of burglary or retaliation against him, he told the left-wing Talking Points Memo website.

Rand Paul Calls for Investigation of Obama Officials Colluding Against Trump: ‘Worse than Watergate!’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Thursday called for an investigation about “high ranking Obama government officials” who might have worked together to stop the election of President Trump.

“Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of @realDonaldTrump! This could be WORSE than Watergate!”

Paul’s call adds a high-profile voice to the chorus of Republicans who are calling for a special counsel to investigate whether Obama officials tried to stop Trump’s election, in the face of mounting evidence.

So far, congressional investigators have found out that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Trump dossier, through their law firm Perkins Coie. Clinton campaign and DNC officials have denied knowing about it. Perkins Coie initially denied funding the dossier, before they were forced to admit it after the House intelligence committee subpoenaed for financial records.

The dossier was then given to the FBI in the summer, when the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign began, and when it applied for a surveillance warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Congressional investigators are finding out whether the dossier — an unconfirmed piece of anti-Trump opposition research — was used as evidence to launch the investigation and get a spy warrant.

Obama protected Hezbollah drug ring to save Iran nukes deal

“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” David Asher, who helped found the program for the Defense Department, told Politico. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”

The Obama administration stymied a sprawling investigation into the terror group Hezbollah — and its highly lucrative drug- trafficking networks — to protect the Iran nuclear deal, according to a bombshell report.

A team at the Drug Enforcement Administration had been working for almost a decade to bring down the Iran-backed militant organization’s sophisticated $1 billion-a-year drug ring, which laundered money and smuggled cocaine into the United States, Politico reported.

But the departments of Justice and Treasury repeatedly undermined agents’ efforts to arrest and prosecute key members of the criminal network — because the Obama White House feared upsetting Tehran ahead of the nuclear agreement, according to Politico.

Former Treasury official Katherine Bauer even admitted in little-noticed testimony to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs last February that “under the Obama administration .?.?. these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”
