Last week brought new revelations regarding Operation Choke Point, the Obama administration’s effort to freeze politically disfavored businesses out of the financial system. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.), who helped lead a multi-year effort to shut the program down, highlighted some of theses newest findings and pointed out that stopping Operation Choke Point is not a partisan issue.
President Trump has been in an uphill battle to reverse Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” America. Trump’s successes in the past 20 months in erasing the damage of the Obama’s eight years are well documented. But he has a long way to go based on what we saw in the Kavanaugh hearings.
In an unsurprising turn of events, former President Barack Obama has endorsed three candidates with deep ties to the Democratic Socialists of America. In his second round of endorsements, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Andrew Gillum have been added.
Barack Obama’s administration let a significant number of civil surgeons with skeletons in their closet test migrants for contagious or dangerous health conditions at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Department. One tried to hire a hit man to kill a patient. Another abused his female patients. Background checks were minimal.
President Donald Trump responded Saturday to a series of indictments, made against Russian hackers as part of Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation, by laying the blame squarely at the feet of former President Barack Obama.
The Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials, while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, a senior cleric and member of parliament has claimed.
Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, who is chairman of Iran’s parliamentary nuclear committee and a member of its national security and foreign affairs committee, made the allegations during an interview with the country’s Etemad newspaper, cited by the country’s Fars News agency.
After returning from a tour of some of the war zones in the Middle East — which ended with the Free Iran Gathering 2018 in Paris — I am struck by the realization that America really did have a Manchurian Candidate in The White House for eight years. If you look at the evidence, there really is no other conclusion. The calamitous consequences of the Obama presidency will be felt for the foreseeable future.
Several days ago, LU’s Ben Bowles uncovered a newly released report published by the ACLU claiming that “migrant children long have reported varied mistreatment in CBP custody, including sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, and the deprivation of basic needs such as food, water, and emergency medical care.”
As Bowles noted in his last sentence, the abuses occurred between 2009 and 2014 — the Obama years — which explains why the mainstream media have still not touched the story.
“More than one million immigrants have been deported since President Obama took office,” the 2011 PBS “Frontline” Lost in Detention contended. “Under his administration, deportations and detentions have reached record levels. The get-tough policy has brought complaints of abuse and harsh treatment, including charges that families have been unfairly separated after being caught in the nationwide dragnet.”
As Cecilia Muñoz, White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs explained, “Even if the immigration law is executed with perfection, there will be parents separated from their children.” As it turns out, that separation policy was intentional, and the Obama administration deployed it to enrich cronies.
Shaun King, Linda Sarsour and other liberals thought they were criticizing the Trump administration on Sunday when they tweeted a picture of immigrant minors sleeping in a caged enclosure, but it turned out they were inadvertently tweeting a photo that occurred during the Obama administration instead.
