Obama and Biden….ad nauseum

SO!  The Obamas are going to make about 30 MILLION dollars for their 2 books…earlier yesterday, I’d heard SIXTY million, but I think that was incorrect.  I hope so.  I suppose he’ll blather about what an amazing president he was and I hear she’s going to write a book encouraging Black young people.  Why the HECK didn’t she do that in the 8 years she had the bully pulpit?  NOT ONCE did I hear either of these people speak to young people saying “GO TO SCHOOL, DON’T GET PREGNANT!, GET GOOD JOBS and, for HEAVEN’S SAKE…lay off drugs…where’s THAT going to get you?”  But NOW she’s writing a book $$$$$

NEVER.  Not ONCE.  So, Michelle Obama, who says her children’s role model is Beyonce (read these lyrics, I was going to quote some here but can’t bring myself to type them, and I AM NO PRUDE)…  This was the day after we heard Donald Trump actually said P***y IN PRIVATE 11 years ago!  “Well, how awful!  He’s dreadful!  MY daughters’ role model is BEYONCE!”   Oh, my goodness.

I love this from THIS ARTICLE:  “The Obamas plan to donate a “significant portion” of their author proceeds to charity, including to the Obama Foundation.”   Ruh Roh!  Shades of THE CLINTON FOUNDATION?  🙂

So, listen, in a comment yesterday I gave this information:  “The widow of Joe Biden’s late son Beau Biden has started a romantic relationship with Beau’s brother Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s younger son.   Hallie was devastated when her husband, Beau, died after suffering from brain cancer in May 2015. But she has since struck up a romance with Beau’s brother Hunter, 47, who has separated from his wife, Kathleen. We’re told Hallie and Hunter are now officially a couple.”

What they want to do is their business…..but my point is this:  IMAGINE IF A REPUBLICAN WIDOW WAS ‘DEVASTATED’ BY HER HUSBAND’S DEATH AND WITHIN A YEAR AND A HALF WAS DATING HIS BROTHER WHO JUST HAPPENED TO GET SEPARATED?   

Ya, that’s what I think.

BY THE WAY!  I put CNN on about five times yesterday to see what hateful nonsense they were spewing and I had to laugh at the fact that they had Van Jones on most of the day apologizing in a hundred different ways for having said Trump was presidential the night before.  Oh, BLISSFUL TV 🙂

Thoughts?

    I am confident Barry and Moochelle will rake in big bucks for their books. Once the public library receives their copies, I am pretty sure they will file them in the ‘Fairy Tale’ section, along with Mother Goose and Grimm’s work.

    Although I don’t have an advance copy, I am positive that Barry will tout his achievements: free healthcare for everybody except those rich fat cats that don’t deserve the money they stole from everybody else anyway. Another great achievement: he saved us all from economic collapse in 2009 by spending a trillion dollars we didn’t have on nothing we can put our finger on. Nowhere in this book will be any mention of the scourge of ISIS that was created by him, or the doubling of the national debt all by himself.

    Moochelle’s book will be replete with seething anger at everything conservative. I’ll bet that tome flies off the shelves. Just like all of Hillary Clinton’s books – they had so many of them stacked up in the back of bookstores, they had to give them away, and people used them for tire chocks, door stops and fueling their fire places. Nobody, but nobody read any of them.

    Well, we knew it wuz gonna be a rough ride with El Donaldo. But at least he hasn’t put his feet up on the Resolute desk yet and DingleBarry and Gropey Joe liked to do.

    And I think we all knew that DB wouldn’t exit stage left with grace and dignity. He just lost the only steady job he ever had, and to maintain the lifestyle he enjoyed with the People’s Carte Blanche, he needs unlimited funds.

    Bottom line, tho, is the only thing that leaves a bigger mess than a Senate with Dirty Harry, a House with Botoxi Pelousy, and a White House infested with Bo and Mo is a world war . . . or a liberal protest march.

    Joe is that crazy uncle that every family has, the one who won’t shut up and tells off-color jokes and drinks the last beer. Bo & Mo are like the uninvited guest who never leaves, runs up the fone bill, uses all the hot water, and leaves the iron on.

    Yes, elections have consequences, the best of which this cycle is that HRC, like several of the New England Patriots, won’t be going to the White House.

  3. -FJ says:

    Jeff Session talked to some Russians! That’s ALL we’re going to be hearing for the next three years…

  4. geeez2014 says:

    FJ..it’s bad. He said he hadn’t under oath, apparently. I’m no Sessions fan, tho I supported him because Trump wanted him and those who spoke for him at the nominations hearings were so complimentary. This is sad for Trump; yet another manufactured mess the Left is absolutely GLOATING over.
    That, and the fact that ….

    …they say Trump shouldn’t have ‘used’ the SEAL widow…..some , however, have admitted all presidents do that. They played the huge applause THE VIEW audience gave to one of their hacks who slammed Trump for his..it’s disheartening.
    I guess the meme that went out to protect the Dems is not that they didn’t support her but that Trump ‘used her’…..good message control on their part, the swine.

    bocopro; I wish the Pats not going to the WH was really the worst of ‘this cycle’…it’s decidedly not.

    Now Trump is threatening military actions against N. Korea; THANK GOD (THANK GOOOODDDD!) that Mattis is in charge of THAT!! OOYYY!

    Fredd…not sure when Obama will have time to write now that he’s vowing to come back into politics in a big way……People ADORE THAT JERK so this will be yet another hard time for Trump, though there are certainly people, a LOT, on HIS SIDE, THank goodness.

    BY THE WAY: Trump met with and spoke with Obama apparently several times before the inauguration. Anybody here want to take my bet that Obama will absolutely include ANYTHING about Trump he knows will be unflattering? “While we met, Trump was surprised at how big this job is…I was surprised a candidate hadn’t looked into that” etc etc.
    WAIT FOR IT. $$$ I’ll bet.

    http://edition.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/03/02/debbie-wasserman-schultz-accused-not-standing-trump-address-intv-erin.cnn
    THIS IS the DARNED THING Trump folks MUST AVOID. Again, it’s NOT TRUE and there’s video SHOWING IT…but Conway says “Gee, if Wasserman Schultz didn’t stand, that’s sad..”
    OMG

  6. geeez2014 says:

    SESSIONS is saying he had spoken to the Russian ambassador twice….but that he didn’t discuss the election and so he didn’t think he needed to mention it in hearings…; seems to me that someone in his previous position had every reason and every right to speak to the Russian ambassador for business…for normal operating discussions.
    I think this is BS the more I hear about it.

  7. geeez2014 says:

    And then there’s Maria Harf, OBAMA HACK, who’s now working for FOX!!!!, condemning Sessions with “I spoke to nonpartisan people who believe this deserves investigation”….Ya, I’m sure she has a lot of NON partisan LEFTWINGERS she contacts 🙂
    WHY WOULD FOX FIRE HER!???

  8. geeez2014 says:

    my gosh! I just Googled Shannon Bream and she earns $800,000 a yr on FOX. Holy cow!

  9. bocopro says:

    What I’m havin trouble understanding is precisely WHAT the Dems want. I just don’t get it. Isn’t the whole point of fed’ral gubmint to do what’s in the best long-range interests of the nation and not the best interests of politicians whose only goal is to regain control OF that gubmint in the next election?

    Cheese ‘n’ crackers. Of COURSE Sessions spoke with Kislyak. What’d be surprising is if senior members of the Senate Armed Services Committee and other agencies DIDN’T communicate with Russian and Chinese and French and German and other officials on a variety of subjects.

    Other than scattergun-style obstructionism, what the hell do Leahy, Durbin, Blumenthal, and Schumer WANT? Mass resignations? Complete anarchy? Armed revolution? Maybe they want Oprah to be declared PotUS by acclamation.

    No, that can’t be it . . . she’s neither transgender nor lesbian nor Muslim, so maybe Chaz Bono? No, she’s not black. Ellison? Hey, he’s Muslim, black, and a self-professed champion of GLBTQ. But, alas, he’s neither female nor tranny.

    Oh, well. Guess we’ll have to go with a triumvirate of Oprah, Ellison, and Ellen DeGeneres.

    Buy precious metals, mes amis, and MREs, and ammo . . . plenty of ammo.

  10. It makes me wonder how publishers make the profits to afford these enormous book deals with former Presidents and First Ladies. Nobody is going to buy these books, not in sufficient numbers to pay $30 million a piece. Yeah, sure, the Obamas are going to donate a significant amount of the book deal proceeds…… to AVOID PAYING TAXES, so they’ll donate the money to themselves! Get real!

    Beyonce’s lyrics and those of her husband, hell the entire rap music culture, are disgusting. Yet all they want to talk about is a private conversation of Donald Trump’s. Double standards abound on the Left.

    I don’t care to criticize Hallie Biden or Hunter Biden. It’s been 21 months since Beau’s death. And losing a husband and brother to cancer is so very sad and painful I’m sure they became close while grieving. It’s unbearable, really, except you do bear it because you have to. I’ve said many times, Z.- and you know this is true; you never know what you can endure until you have no choice. Only when faced with the absolute worst outcome do you find out just how strong you really are. I wish the Bidens well. If this is how they’ve found the strength to cope with their loss, well….. who am I to judge?

    With regard to former Senator Sessions meeting with the Russian Ambassador? So what? More nonsense from the Left. They’re so desperate to start their Watergate-style witch hunt to destroy President Trump. It’s pathetic!

  11. Kid says:

    In other news, Sean Spicer says that DJ Trump wrote his speech to Congress. Personally, I think Melania probably helped.

  12. The fact that Sessions spoke to the Russian Ambassador is less an issue than Sessions perjuring himself. His remarks made during the Clinton Impeachment hearings….are about to be resurrected, with extreme prejudice.

  13. CI, Attorney General Jeff Session DID NOT PERJURE himself. From my FB Friend, Dave Perkins:

    “I must’ve heard a dozen news stories by now, saying sessions talked to the Russians during the campaign but claimed during his confirmation hearings that he did not. The problem with these new stories is, they are leaving out the details of the question he was asked, in writing, by Patrick Leahy. Leahy asked, “have you had any kind of contact with any members of the Russian government concerning the elections?”. His answer, therefore, is truthful. He did not talk about the elections. He was speaking in his role as a senator and a member of a committee, as he spoke with many members of other foreign governments. He said he did not speak about the election with any members of the Russian government. His answer was no to the question, “did you talk about the elections?” He did not contradict himself nor perjure himself. He answered the question correctly. The media is leaving out the part of the question that said “concerning the election”.
    Total fraud, propaganda, useless media trying to dent trump by dinging his cabinet.”

  14. FW – Correct; the exact written question from Leahy to Sessions was:

    Several of the President-Elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?

    Sessions’s answer apparently was, no. He then shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

  15. bocopro says:

    The Sessions fooforah is just a smokescreen, a red herring, a Look!-there’s-a-squirrel! distraction from the reality that DJT isn’t as big a disaster as the magic negro.

    If the Democrat Attorney General and former-potus-husband of the Dems’ candidate could “accidentally” land simultaneously at the same airport during the frenzy of a hotly contested campaign and talk about nothing more than their grandchildren, then why couldn’t Sessions and a Russian ambassador compare trout fishing in the Volga and the Snake?

    Only guilt I see is that he shoulda got out in front of it instead of givin the headhunters a nice piece of 21-thread with an eye splice in one end. Or perhaps find a nice convenient youtube video to blame it on.

  16. Mal says:

    “Why the heck didn’t she do that during the 8 years she had the bully pulpit?” Because she wouldn’t have been able to make any $$$$$ from it if she had while 1st Lady, but she can now. I still believe (hope?) the Obama Years will be tarnished in the years to come, esp. after Trump turns things around, which will put the spotlight on the damage done by the previous administration.
    They keep saying Obama made bad choices. They still don’t get it because this was his plan all along, to weaken us and try to “Muslimize” America by importing as many as possible. And no, C.I., I don’t have any proof other than all his actions and decisions during those 8 years. That should convince anyone who he REALLY is.

  17. I didn’t ask you for any. Believe what you want.

  18. Imp says:

    I seem to recall…or not…..the DemRats getting apoplectic over Holder in drag meeting with Bubba, in private, in secret, at an FBO, in aircraft ( so they thought as no one was permitted with them and all cameras forbidden, except one…) a couple days before Comey announced that yes, Killary was a lying ( under oath ) and did secret communications, and did carelessly, and did use multiple devices and did lie….and did lie…and did lie again…..and did have a non approved non government open email communications server.

    Maybe they know that Sessions was going to drop a nuke at her feet with a reopened investigation and an indictment at least?

  19. -FJ says:

    Just “how” did the Russians influence our election? What were their “means”? Now prove that they did, and THEN start looking for collusion. Until the “premise” is proven true, all conjecture about collusion is simply THAT. Conjecture.

  20. geeez2014 says:

    FAIREST WITNESS….i never ever judged the Biden situation…..I said “CAN YOU IMAGINE IF REPUBLICANS WERE DOING THIS AND WHAT THE MEDIA’D BE SAYING”. Please…I would never judge this.

    CI and Mal; I just heard the exact question Franken asked Sessions about the Russian thing and Sessions looked completely nonplussed by it…just said “No.” Because he very clearly hadn’t discussed elections..also, there were 2-3 witnesses in that mtg and, as Judge Napolitano just said on TV “you think he’d have said ‘so let’s see how Russia can win the election for Trump’?”

    http://heavy.com/news/2017/03/jeff-sessions-russians-video-under-oath-lied-lie-congress-al-franken-leahy-watch-didnt-communicate-with-ambassador-sergey-kislyak/

    HERE is the question and answer: “If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?”

    “I’m not aware of any of those activities,” Sessions replied. “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I didn’t have — did not have communications with the Russians.”

    SO, you see? The question is clearly about the campaign and Sessions had met twice with Russians but on the kind of stuff they normally meet on….as they do Canadian, Japanese, etc., ambassadors; It’s clear to me that Sessions was totally right in his response.

    Catherine Herridge of FOX NEWS suggests that it’s odd that the Russian Amb. would contact Sessions JUST at the height of the scandal…….as if to force a meeting that he’d be sorry for…
    Very interesting to hear her, an intel reporter who deals a lot with this stuff, take on it.

  21. I do have to wonder how often – and why – the SASC Chairman would meet with a foreign Ambassador. Not saying it doesn’t happen, I’d like to know what would be the discussion points. Sessions recused himself from the ongoing investigations…..not sure that was a good PR move.

  22. Silverlady says:

    Two things I just heard on The Five that a man who posted ugly remarks about the Gold Star widow on his F’bk. (?) lost his job.

    And if the Bidens were Jewish that little ‘romance’ would never, EVER be allowed according to Hebraic laws.

  23. geeez2014 says:

    CI, he was recusing before this hit yesterday…..it’s on record. Also, they meet with all sorts of ambassadors, according to what people are saying. Sessions was very nonchalant on that in the presser today; “I meet with France, Canada,…” Imagine if he said that and the SASC Chair does NOT? These meetings were in July and September, I believe.
    Looks like the recusal was a very good PR move because it looked like he was proactive; ahead of the media frenzy. He’d had a meeting with his staff and gone to the DoJ ethics experts who said since he’s involved at all in the campaign, he ought to recuse.

  24. bocopro says:

    if the Bidens were Jewish that little ‘romance’ would never, EVER be allowed

    Hamlet, too. He considered Claudius’s marriage to Gertrude after King Hamlet’s death to be incestuous.

  25. Z – All reports I’ve seen say that Sessions had recused himself today, after earlier saying he would recuse himself “when appropriate”. And, I haven’t seen any record [other than Sessions own statement] that illustrates that SASC Chairmen regularly meet with foreign Ambassadors.

  26. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro, is that right about Jewish romances?
    Personally, I find it curious because of the thought that there might have been attraction over the years, which strikes me as a bit creepy….and I’m always a bit squeamish about families marrying family after someone’s passed away, even if they’re not blood related, but …..I do wish them well.

    And I think you’ll agree, Republicans would be CASTIGATED, gossiped about in print, etc…Oh, BROTHER!!!

  27. geeez2014 says:

    CI; it’s definitely not uncommon to meet with foreign Ambassadors: “Cole replied that he takes Sessions at his word. Cole said he had even asked his own scheduler how many foreign ambassadors he had met with since the beginning of 2016, because he couldn’t recall every encounter. It turned out to be about a dozen.”

  28. Kid says:

    Couple thoughts.

    Hunter Biden seperated from his wife a while ago, and they have since divorced. If anyone didn’t know.
    And all of my life being around Jewish people, I assumed it was widely accepted that Jewish men fool around, have mistresses, etc and it’s all accepte as part of the culture. All the ones I knew did. Except for one I currently know.

  29. bocopro says:

    “Bocopro, is that right about Jewish romances?”

    Beats me. I’m a relapsed Baptist permanently tethered to a Roman Catholic and know basically nothing of Jewish customs. But the ghost of King Hamlet tells young Hamlet that Claudius is an “incestuous, adulterate beast.”

    Shakespeare’s audience fully expected a standard revenge tragedy when the play was first presented in the old Globe theatre. They had no idea how complex, murky, convoluted, lengthy, dreary, and philosophical it would be.

    I do believe, however, that most Bretons, Scots, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and Normans considered it custom for nobility or aristocracy to shelter and support widows and orphans of close kin, but NOT to marry their dead brother’s wife.

    Not kosher, you know . . . simply not done. At least that’s what it says in my notes from Dr. Maddox’s and Dr. Miller’s classes in grad school.

  30. A brother whose dead brother had no children by his wife was to take the wife as his own to raise an inheritance. To carry on his brother’s name.
    Famously illustrated by the Gospel story which ends in Jesus saying that in heaven they neither marry nor are given in marriage. Matthew 22:30
    Hunter Biden’s wife is suing to keep him from squandering the family funds on drugs and hookers. he’s the one kicked out of the Navy for cocaine.

  31. Imp says:

    “how many foreign ambassadors he had met with since the beginning of 2016, because he couldn’t recall every encounter. It turned out to be about a dozen.”

    Isn’t that what Ambassadors are supposed to do? Rep their countries interest while on foreign shores? So that means back slapping on the 19th hole or in Georgetown over Pinot Grigio and Bloody Mary’s or Black Russians…am I right? With House members and Senators? And why is it that it’s the Russians who are the boogie men again? Not the French, Germans, Italians or Swedes? What gives….we want war with our natural allies….Russians?

  32. Imp says:

    “Bocopro, is that right about Jewish romances?”

    Orthodox don’t take on wives if the other partner is still alive.

  33. Kid says:

    IMP, I switched to White Russans after I got beat up by a bunch of Black Russians…

  34. Imp says:

    No such thing Kid….only in a drink. Who said Ruskies aren’t smart.

  35. Sorry, Z. There were so many topics in your post…. I suppose I was countering the hyped article I read at Daily Mail about the Bidens. It was sensationalized & judgmental. I didn’t mean to imply YOU were that. I know better. Was just giving my two cents. Again, sorry.

  36. geeez2014 says:

    FairestWitness, thank you SO much…I appreciate that. I know you know me better than that xxx

    Ed, his ex is suing? How awful. I feeel sorry for the family about that and any other tragedies, including Beau’s death, of course… And I really do hope Hunter has his act together and they’ll find happiness together. Imagine the children’s confusion? Ugh. I just thought of that.

    Boco! “Beats me.” You’re the one who said it 🙂

    Imp, thanks for that information about Orthodox Jews….sounds sensible to ME.

  37. Kid says:

    IMP, been watching Russian driving/crash videos. Damn they dumb. People don’t look when crossing the street, lots of red light drive throughs at speed, turning left from right lane, turning right from left lane, uturns without looking, driving way too fast for conditions, everything you shouldn’t do. I’d like to be a car dealer over there.

  38. geeez2014 says:

    Kid! WHY?! 🙂

    Beau Biden; seems to me he was five times the man his brother is…..such a shame….

  39. Kid says:

    Z, Why what…..? Bidens? I have zero insight.

  40. bocopro says:

    Boco! “Beats me.” You’re the one who said it 🙂

    Ack shully, I just dragged down a snippet from Silverlady and neglected to identify the quote with road signs.

  41. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro…I hadn’t seen SilverLady…sorry! So now you’re a plagiarist? (I AM DEFINITELY KIDDING >>HA!)
