Tancredo: The Disgusting Media Double Standard Between Obama and Trump

Pop quiz: Who said, “The Middle East is an issue that has obviously plagued the region for centuries”? No, it wasn’t Ross Perot, and it wasn’t Donald Trump. It was Barack Obama, the same man the White House press corps hailed as the smartest man to ever sit in the Oval Office.

The political bias of the establishment media has never been more outrageous than what we see in the press’s double standard for covering President Donald Trump. For contrasts that will make your head spin and your heart ache, compare Trump’s treatment to the press’s idolatrous treatment of President Obama.

The media’s fan-club attitude toward Obama was unprecedented in the modern era. Not even handsome Jack Kennedy or war hero Eisenhower got the kids-glove treatment that Obama got. Obama’s frequent goofy statements and embarrassing gaffes were either overlooked entirely or treated as amusing sidebars.

Will any historian ever catalog Obama’s frequent misstatements of elementary facts? How many do you remember? Here are few of the gems liberal historians will overlook:

Obama claimed the Americans liberated Auschwitz and Treblinka. No, they did not.

He said the world came together to save Berlin during the airlift. No, they didn’t; it was mostly an American and British effort, with Mexico, Italy and Egypt conspicuously absent.

He claimed that as a result of the Selma march, he was born. Not true. Obama was born four years before the Selma march.

U.S. Airline Pilots Rally at White House: Will Ask Trump To Block Obama’s Export of White-Collar Jobs

Airline pilots will hold a White House rally on Tuesday asking President Donald Trump to block Obama’s last-minute approval of a plan that would replace thousands of American pilots with foreign aircrew paid at rock-bottom foreign wages.

The airline pilots’ appeal will come one day after Trump’s signature on Monday killed the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which would have allowed an unlimited number of foreign companies to replace U.S. workers with imported foreign workers paid $1 an hour wages.

“This [Obama pilot] decision is just another failed trade deal by the Obama administration, giving foreign companies an unfair advantage over U.S. companies,” said Captain Jon Weaks, Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association president.

“The Obama administration has tilted the field of play in favor of a foreign competitor and put thousands of good-paying, middle-class, U.S. aviation jobs at risk,” said Chip Hancock, chairman of the union’s governmental affairs committee. “We’re very pleased with the [new] president so far for what he’s done to squash these bad trade deals … [and] with the president’s pro-U.S. worker, pro fair trade mantra.”

Throughout his two terms, Obama worked to increase the annual inflow of foreign white-collar workers, and his last-minute regulations allow many more white-collar contract workers to get permanent residence.

Obama’s Shame

“Clearly, Obama wasn’t thinking about the American families whose lives were blown apart by FALN bombs. Instead, he gave aid and comfort to America’s enemies.”

Give President Obama credit: he didn’t wait until he was in the limousine on his way to Donald Trump’s inauguration to commute Oscar López Rivera’s prison sentence. Had he waited until mid-morning Friday, January 20, to do it, his symbolic sanction of domestic terrorism might have escaped the average American’s notice. Those who did notice might have called him a coward, but their objections would have been drowned out amid the day’s oaths and protests.

As it is, Obama chose to do it on Tuesday afternoon, January 17, at the same time he commuted the sentence of the American traitor Chelsea Manning. In its way, the out-in-the-open quality of these commutations is a statement of principle. Americans of every political stripe now have a chance to consider what the president has done. It was a bold move. It said: This is the real me. This is my idea of justice.

López Rivera is sworn enemy of the United States who admitted to his role as a leader of the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), the clandestine Puerto Rican nationalists who planted more than 130 bombs during the 1970s, mostly in Chicago and New York. The bill of indictments against the FALN and López Rivera need not be rehearsed here. He never denied anything. You can look it up.

The Horrible Truth About Barack Obama’s Presidency – Stefan Molyneux (Video)

On January 20, 2009, President Barack Obama took office on a platform of “hope” and “change” for the United States of America. As Obama has completed his final day as President of the United States, Stefan Molyneux reviews his accomplishments, failures and legacy in the annals of American history.

Obama Commutes Life Sentences of Four Mexican Cartel Leaders

Four family members who ran one of the largest cartel smuggling operations in south Texas had their life in prison sentences commuted and will likely be returning to this border city from where they ran their criminal empire. One of the main destinations that the criminal organizations delivered drugs to was Chicago, Illinois.

This week, outgoing President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 209 convicted criminals and pardoned 64 others. The majority of the convictions were from drug trafficking or production offenses.

Four of those convicted criminals who had been sentenced to life in prison will be released by May 17. They ran a criminal organization made up of close to 80 men and women who worked with Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to move between 100,000 to almost 750,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. during a 10-year period. The drugs were moved into Houston and then distributed to Atlanta, Chicago, and other major metropolitan areas.

According to court records obtained by Breitbart Texas, brothers Cesar Moreno Sr., Eduardo Moreno, Lazaro Moreno, and Luis Moreno along with other relatives and friends had been at the helm of a large-scale drug distribution operation based out of the border city of Roma, Texas. The area has long been one of he main distribution lines used by Mexico’s Gulf Cartel to get large quantities of marijuana into the U.S. due to the remoteness of the area, lacking physical barriers, and police resources–not to mention the complicity of various law enforcement officials.

Bill Ayers ‘Dancing in the Aisles’ Over Obama’s Pardon of FALN Member Oscar López Rivera

Former Weather Underground terrorist group leader Bill Ayers on Tuesday said he was on an airplane “dancing in the aisles” over news that President Obama commuted the sentence of FALN activist Oscar López Rivera, whose group was linked to over 100 bombs placed in U.S. cities in the 1970s and 1980s.

Ironically, Ayers, a former associate of Obama’s, was on his way from Havana, where he wrote that he was celebrating the 75th birthday of his wife, fellow Weather Underground member Bernadine Dohrn.

Like the FALN, Ayers’ Weather Underground was also linked to bombings in U.S. cities, including those targeting the U.S. Capitol building, the Pentagon, and numerous New York police stations.

Ayers wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday:

Still in the air, dancing in the aisles: Just in from sister Jan Susler:

We are thrilled to announce that today President Obama made the wise and just decision to grant unconditional executive clemency to Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, who served 35 years in U.S. prison.

One day earlier, he had tweeted that he was on his way to Havana and would return “in time to rise up in Washington” – seemingly a reference to the protests slated for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday.

Sarah Palin: Finally, the ‘End of an Error’

Like everyone’s saying, it’s the end of an error. Obama is gone.

Time to undo what the Community Organizer organized for America: astronomically increased debt, a disrespected law enforcement and military community, numerous ticked off allies, newly empowered enemies, erasure of borders, and demographic divisions aplenty.

Obama is free now to stammer on about fulfilling his promises, like he’ll “negotiate healthcare reform in public sessions, televised on C-SPAN… Everyone gets a seat at the table.” [emphasis added]

There’s a new sheriff in town. Here’s hoping he’s got a posse of deputies who understand why we elected Donald J. Trump and won’t undermine our movement. The mandate: drain the swamp — those hell-bent on obstruction included. It’s RINO season.

We will recover from Obama. The question is, how soon can we recover from the people who voted for him. Twice.

Beneficiaries of Entitlement Programs Skyrocked Under Obama (Video)

Beneficiaries of entitlement programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and food stamps greatly increased under the Obama administration, adding billions to the nation’s debt.

A recent report says the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a food stamps program, costs taxpayers $70,866,830,000 in 2016. Under the Obama administration, the number of people using food stamps went from 33,490,000 to 44,219,000.

The number Medicaid beneficiaries went from 60,880,000 in 2009, to 74,059,221 in 2016.

“Historically, Medicaid eligibility has generally been limited to low-income children, pregnant women, parents of dependent children, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities,” said the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

But this changed under the Obama administration. The organization went on to say, “However, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) included the ACA Medicaid expansion, which expands Medicaid eligibility to individuals under the age of 65 with income up to 133% of the federal poverty level at state option.”
