            Get on wid’ya Warren!! You didn’t go through the relentless abuse that our Barack Obama went through for 8 years, even as he was setting Bush’s catastrophes to rights. Twice that much wouldn’t cover it by half. Stick to attacking the SOCIOPATHS in the Party of Death.

        Are they all jealous because they can’t get that much? What is the problem with these people?? I know we paid a lot of attention to Romney speaking to big corporations, but can’t they grasp the difference between President Obama and Romney? He has shown them his ethics, honesty, and priorities over the last eight years and even starting longer ago than that. Do they still think he’s posing or running a long con? He’s been fooling us all these years, getting beat up, disrespected, and hated every day for 8-9 years by friends and foe alike just so he can make money now??? These things, honesty, integrity, ethics, kindness, concern, and the will to raise up ALL people are his bedrock and speaking engagements won’t change that. They are truly delusional and continue to play to some fantasy WWC base while at the same time saying we need to “move the party left”. I must be stupid but I just don’t get it.

        In addition to this outrage, she was wishy-washy on pro-choice as a defining issue for Dems.

        Is she dim that this speech is at a health care conference? Is she too dim to move the conversation back to the fascist horror taking over our country? Is she dim that PBO has worked for every damned penny he has ever earned?

        I’m furious.

        He is a private citizen, not their property, not their boy and never was. PBO owes us nothing. Why these mofos think that they can have something to say about how a private, lawful citizen makes his money while we have thieves and profiteers in the white house is way beyond the pale. The jealousy and racism are on full display. Too many on the left think we are only good for strong backs to bear their burdens without complaint and warm arms to dry their tear as they whine about their trifling problems. She and others like her can kiss my ass and kiss away my vote; enough is enough!

    I know we all want to know, and maybe its just me, but i think there is too much information being given out on what people, know, have, heard, expect. Don’t they know that the perpetrators are following them too. Anything that their supporters think is damaging to their cause will be buried, denied, destroyed etc. Sometimes i think folks ‘chat too much’ A reminder now and again that things are being investigated but everyday there is a new revelation by the time the charges are proferred folks will already have their defense to have the whole thing thrown out. I hope i am wrong and nuff folks are going to jail including members of congress of the Republican persuasion. My rant for the day.

      So much jealousy and ENVY from both the looney left and zombie right. That president obama is better than them in every way possible must really eat at them day and night to care how much $$ he makes. reminds of the same group moaning over Hillary getting paid (less than the men of course!) for her speeches.

    The Far Left Is Still Out Of Touch With Black Voters

    This week, the internet was set ablaze with hot takes relating to former President Obama’s decision to get paid to speak at a healthcare conference. The conference was organized by Cantor Fitzgerald, a bond firm, which apparently makes it an enemy of state to the far left. The consensus among the far left is that Obama’s decision to get paid to speak is evidence of political corruption. On its face, this is just an absurd statement with no basis in fact: Obama is legally barred from running for President again, and his wife, Michelle Obama, has repeated indicated she has no interest in politics. How can the money be a bribe for the Obamas if they have no future in public office?

    But when you dig deeper to the root of the criticism, you start to see some ugly truths about the far left and race in America. You start to see why Sanders’ movement was overwhelmingly white and struggled mightily to get the support of the people of color they needed to have any chance at winning the primary. There is a major disconnect between Sanders and his followers and the majority of Black voters in this country, and the latest spat with Obama is just the most recent indication of that.

      But will United Airlines give us more leg room? Last time I traveled on that airline we all lost our booked aisle seats to a couple of sports teams, both male and female. I was jammed on the inside with not enough air. Worst flight ever. The attendant told me hey were working on reducing the leg space even further. Ordinary people paying through the nose for THAT.

    Who didn’t see this consensus coming.

    LONDON — The reviews from around the world of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office are in, and they’re not good.

    “Quite a few people are saying well, ‘We’re still here,'” joked Alastair Stewart, a top anchor at Britain’s ITV News and an observer of global affairs for more than 40 years. But he was only half-joking. “There isn’t all-out nuclear conflict, although it’s openly talked about. I find that quite extraordinary,” he said.

    Interviews conducted by NBC NEWS in more a half-dozen countries revealed a similar feeling that the world has become more dangerous under Trump and that a major crisis, or worse, could be looming.

      • April 27, 2017 at 7:54 pm

        I’m with you 100% CEB. President Obama said before that there are three things in life that are certain, death, taxes, and Michelle will never run for political office. I don’t think Malia and Sasha like this political thing, and can you blame them the way their parents were treated. Here’s to our POTUS and FLOTUS, Thank You.

        April 27, 2017 at 8:39 pm

        Remember when Sen Sherrod Brown, some other women’s groups (and maybe Sen Warren too because she did not knock their comments down) were all up in arms calling PBO sexist for calling her Elizabeth and no Senator Warren? She, Sen Brown and others were busy bashing PBO on TPP saying how they could not read it all etc ( but still bashing without full knowledge). This whole TPP tour of theirs, taken up by Bernie as well, had an effect on Hillary Clinton’s campaign as well.

        Democrats keep doing this -attacking each other in public in a damaging way instead of going to the source and working it out particularly at a time with elections coming up and setting out any differences publicly in a respectful non- threatening and not divisive way.

        What may be so egregious in her case is that from what I have read, much of her success and high profile status is due to President Obama’s embrace and pushing her.

        I must say that I have lost some respect for her as I thought she would have been a more loyal and politically thoughtful person.

Even though it’s annoying as hell and makes us all continue to be bitter, there’s a certain poetic justice in their continuing angst and the fact that President Obama goes high every time.

      For those who are concerned about PBO being paid for giving a speech, exactly who is it hurting?!?!?!?!

      Does that also mean that legislators should not pursue or accept lucrative positions that they attain by virtue of their government experience and connections? Positions that are typically as lobbyists that push for legislation that ultimately *does* tend to hurt the poor and working class.

      President Obama is a brilliant orator and a fantastic motivational speaker. Are these people saying that he can’t earn a living from his talent? Not to mention that he and Michelle continue to reach down/back to pull others up/forward. Plus the fact that they invest heavily — with both their finances and time — in young people.

        PBO is going to spend A LOT of time fundraising for his library/museum/event center — as I said in this tweet, #MoneyDoesntGrowOnTrees — and critics will wail about PURITY! (and that wailing is why we have the worst FUBAR president ever now).

    OMG. I just finished 4/27 Rachel Maddow. (Thursdays/yesterdays, because it’s now zero dark stupid….)

    Do yourself a favor. watch this…… (link in below tweet.)

    Every Republican member of Congress is either being blackmailed by the Russians, or has been bought by them ($500BILLION Exxon/Rosneft deal can go a long way…) There’s no other explanation for their inaction on #TrumpRussia. Being blackmailed would be the less evil of the two.

    If you haven’t been watching Rachel since the election, you’ve missed out on some amazing journalism. She’s been beyond rabid on Russia, more so than anyone else. She did a huge bit of reporting on the Azerbaijan Trump Tower money laundering scandal (Newsweek), and more of the Russian oligarchs and their global money laundering business, like buying Trump’s Florida home for $50mil more than it was worth, never setting foot in it, then having it demolished….

    She’s also brought some attention to Trump’s Inaugural. His obsession with it being the biggest ever….. and why he and Miss Spicey cling to that lie…. seems the Trump Inaugural Committee raised a record amount of money – an absurd amount…. seriously… watch it.

    Part of my brain keeps trying to hope this is all an elaborate sting operation to take down FIFA and Putin with them…. where multiple countries are in on it, because soccer is the one thing that unites the planet, and it was our AG Lynch who pulled the first thumb out of the dyke and started a flood…. and in the end Donny & Kim turn out to be the heroes for playing their parts so terrifyingly well… if ONLY that were true, since what’s actually happening is having a hard time fitting into my brain.

    What the hell is wrong with the GOP? They’re all Pod People. They’re no longer human, that’s for sure.

    • April 28, 2017 at 4:18 am

      Adding on…. there’s a LOT she doesn’t say…..

      Giving false names (and ADDRESSES) for donors is FINANCIAL FRAUD.
