Morning Greatness: Obama Urges People to Vote Against Attention-Seeking Trump Reality Show

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president participates in the arrival of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Iraq
  • President Trump participates in a restricted bilateral meeting with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Iraq
  • The president participates in an expanded bilateral meeting with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Iraq
  • President Trump delivers remarks at Mariotti Building Products in Old Forge, Pennsylvania

Obama wants you to go vote and Trump SUCKS

On Wednesday night’s DNC show, former President Obama who never left D.C. unlike every one of his able-bodied predecessors, beat down President Trump and all the people who think the president has done a great job (UNITY!) by explaining that Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. Obama, who is paid millions by corporate entertainment titan Netflix, said Trump treats the White House like a reality show to get the attention he “craves.”

Ironically, Obama delivered his speech in Philadelphia where the constitution was drafted and signed. I say ironically, because all we hear about is how the left wants to get rid of critical elements of the constitution. Electoral college, First Amendment, Second Amendment, Fourth Amendment, national sovereignty, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are all on the chopping block for the Democrats.

CNN describes Obama’s 15 minutes of hate as a “stunning rebuke.” Stunning? Who was surprised Obama dragged the president? Only the smartest people in the room. From Obama’s speech:

They understand that in this democracy, the Commander-in-Chief doesn’t use the men and women of our military, who are willing to risk everything to protect our nation, as political props to deploy against peaceful protesters on our own soil. They understand that political opponents aren’t “un-American” just because they disagree with you; that a free press isn’t the “enemy” but the way we hold officials accountable; that our ability to work together to solve big problems like a pandemic depends on a fidelity to facts and science and logic and not just making stuff up.

Read Obama’s speech here, if you must.

Prestige media asks Trump about QAnon at presser

Holy moly these corporate media folk are such clowns. President Trump held a presser on Wednesday and the first question out of the gate was about QAnon.

“The crux of the [QAnon] theory is this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this Satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Does that sound like something you are behind?” the reporter asked.

“Well I haven’t heard that,” Trump said. “Is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?”

“If I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it. I’m willing to put myself out there,” he added. “And we are actually. We are saving the world from a radical left philosophy that will destroy this country, and when this country is gone the rest of the world will follow.”

THE HORROR, THE HORROR.

I don’t know anything about QAnon but I have noticed the corporate media running all kinds of stories about the mysterious group. In case you don’t know anything about it, Breitbart described QAnon as:

an individual who, without corroboration, claims to be a high-ranking government official who has access to classified information about what truly is going on behind the scenes in the nation’s capital. This person, “Q,” purports to relay updates about secret machinations — both evil (Satanic pedophiles) and good (Trump’s administration) — through cryptic messages on anonymous message boards.

So what’s with the sudden interest in QAnon by the media elites? Most likely their intention is to distract from the bloody violence and crime coming from their Antifa and Black Lives Matter allies. Have you noticed the media stopped talking about the Antifa/BLM violence in Portland? The media wants people to think the violence was because Trump sent in the feds to protect the federal court house and now that they have pulled back everything is great. NOPE NOPE NOPE. There’s still attacks on police and civilians, they’ve just stopped covering it because it doesn’t suit the left’s political agenda.

Back to QAnon, I don’t see how QAnon believers are any different than the people who promulgated the RUSSIA collusion hoax and who have their hair on fire over “stolen” postal trucks and mail boxes.

Feds nab 1,400+ in Operation LeGend

Oh, you didn’t hear about this? I wonder why. On Wednesday, A.G. Bill Barr held a press conference highlighting the successes of the nine-city anti-violent-crime Operation LeGend. The operation is named after 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro who was shot dead while sleeping in his bed on June 29 in Kansas City. (Pssst, Black Lives Matter! Well, not really.)

Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that federal agents helped make 1,485 arrests as part of the nine-city anti-violent-crime Operation Legend.

Barr said 1,000 state fugitives were arrested during the operation and 200 people face federal charges, many of them for illegal guns.

Operation Legend was expanded to Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee on July 29, to St. Louis, Mo., and Memphis, Tenn., on Aug. 6, and to Indianapolis on Aug. 14.

The most federal charges are in Chicago, with 61 cases. In Albuquerque there are 32 federal cases, in Cleveland there are 32, in Detroit there are 22 and in St. Louis there are 15.

Below is a video of the press conference which is worth watching if only to hear the sniveling questions from media: “whhhaaaattttt about masss incarcerationzzzzz?”
