Barack Obama


(RepublicanWire.org) – It seemed bad enough for Democrats that Hunter Biden was traveling the world while collecting checks because of his father’s name, particularly when those checks came from Red Chinese state companies. Whether Joe Biden was involved or not, and the “Big Guy” email makes many think he was, it’s still very bad optics for the Democrats.

Well, things just got worse for them. Now House Republicans have dragged Obama into it, so the former president is potentially implicated in the scandal that seems to get worse by the day.

News on that comes from Fox, which reports that Republican lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee wrote a letter demanding that Hunter and his Obama ties be investigated.

First, the lawmakers described why Hunter’s activities, particularly those in Eastern Europe, are all the more relevant now, saying:

On March 15, 2022, the Russian government announced sanctions on President Biden,
members of the Biden Administration, Hillary Clinton, and the President’s son, Hunter Biden. While “it’s unlikely many top Democratic officials will be affected by those measures[,]” it is the inclusion of Hunter Biden—decidedly not a “Democratic official”—that raises serious questions. The nation’s adversaries apparently see the President’s son as a pressure point to exploit. Additionally, his inclusion on the list is the latest evidence that Hunter Biden has indeed engaged in business schemes with our adversaries. Therefore, we request information the White House Counsel’s Office (WHCO) possesses regarding Hunter Biden’s dealings in Russia and Ukraine.

The Russian government’s sanctioning of Hunter Biden and, notably, none of the other Biden children, raises questions about his connections to Russia. The payment of $3.5 million to Hunter Biden or a company associated with him by Elena Baturina, a Russian businesswoman and former wife of former Mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov, has raised the attention of the United States Senate and demonstrates Hunter Biden’s previous dealings with the Russian political class. Hunter Biden’s connections throughout the Russian sphere of influence have now become especially relevant in the fast-moving and developing Russian war in Ukraine. If the Russian government is attempting to influence American policy in Ukraine by exploiting Hunter Biden’s connection with his father—the President of the United States—the American people deserve to know it.

But we’ve heard all that before: most everyone knows, at this point, that Hunter was collecting checks from Eastern Europe, most infamously the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow and as a member of the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company.

So it was what came later in the letter that was shocking. The GOP House then, dragged the Obama White House into the controversy, saying:

Hunter Biden’s dealings have not gone unnoticed, and a Department of Justice (DOJ) probe begun under the Obama Administration has expanded to include a wide variety of potential violations and crimes. According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden is currently under investigation by DOJ for possible violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act and possible criminal tax evasion and money laundering.

That’s right, the DOJ probe didn’t begin under Trump. The probe into what Hunter was up to, though it might have expanded since Obama began it, started in the Obama White House.

What makes that all the more shocking is that the GOP members of the House Oversight Committee evidently thought there was a “there” there, as the Epoch Times reports that they demanded that “they be given access to any and all communication records between Hunter and the Obama White House.”

The representatives also hit Biden for his potential lies about Hunter’s activities, saying:

While then-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden stated that “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” this appears not to be true. The evidence is now clear that not only did Joe Biden talk to his son about his overseas business dealings, but he also met with his son’s associates. The misleading statements by President Biden are even more troubling now that Russia has singled out Hunter Biden on its sanctions list instead of any of the other Biden children. 

So how was Obama involved? Perhaps he was on the right side of the issue, having presided over the beginning of the DOJ probe into what Hunter Biden was up to. But, the demand that communications between Hunter and Obama be turned over hints that the GOP Representatives on the House Oversight Committee think something bigger might be at play.

Democrats’ deceptively-named For the People Act threatens to undo the very fabric of our nation. But if you ask former President Barack Obama, a failure to pass that bill spells before the midterm elections in 2022 the end of ‘democracy’ itself. Sure, the bill advances the numerous problems in the 2020 election. But that’s fine with Democrats, who are fine with rewriting the rules to benefit them and only them.

“We can’t wait until the next election because if we have the same kinds of shenanigans that brought about Jan. 6, if we have that for a couple more election cycles, we’re going to have real problems in terms of our democracy long-term,” Obama said during a call with former Attorney General Eric Holder and supporters.

“Since I left office I’ve tried to make a policy not to weigh in on the day-to-day scrum in Washington,” Obama says. “But what’s happening this week is more than just a partisan bill coming up or not coming up to a vote.” He says the situation is so dire that he is breaking the tradition of former Presidents saying out of current political issues to push this trainwreck piece of legislation.

So far, not a single Republicans stands behind the For the People Act. Even some Democrats like Joe Manchin have taken a stand against their own party to oppose the bill. Because of this, it will be difficult to push the bill through.

“Despite what you may have heard, we believe there is a path forward for this bill to get passed,” Holder said during the call, apparently forgetting that to beat a Republican filibuster, 10 GOPers would have to cross party lines to knowingly support legislation that is objectively bad for America. Obama, naturally, attacked the filibuster, saying it’s not in the Constitution and “allows a determined minority of senators to block legislation supported by the vast majority of Americans.”

In reality, it protects that minority from the will of the majority, which is known to have the potential to be oppressive. Obama and his friends don’t intend to back down. We need to beat this bill, beat the Democrats in 2022 to retake the House and Senate, and defeat Joe Biden in 2024. That’s the game plan. That’s what will keep Americans safe.

TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck says he was wrong to apologize for calling former President Barack Obama “racist.” “This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture… This guy is, I believe, a racist,” Beck said in 2009. He has since apologized for that remark, saying hat Obama “made [him] a better man.” Now, he says he was wrong.

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Beck says that his numerous apologies to Obama over the years were absolutely the wrong thing to do.

“I take my apology back. I was exactly right, and I even stated it right. You are a racist if you believe in critical race theory,” Beck said. “If you think that what Dr. Martin Luther King said, that he envisions a country that is seeing people for the content of their character and not their color, if you if think that’s wrong, then yes, you are a racist.”

Beck’s remarks follow an Obama interview with Anderson Cooper, where the former President accused conservative outlets of using race and racism to profit. “There are certain right-wing media venues, for example, that monetize and capitalize on stoking the fear and resentment of a white population that is witnessing a changing America and seeing demographic changes,” Obama said in the interview. “And do everything they can to give people a sense that their way of life is threatened and that people are trying to take advantage of them.”

“What are we going to do about climate change, what are we going to do about—lo and behold, the biggest single most important issue to them apparently right now is critical race theory,” Obama said. “Who knew that was the threat to our republic?”

As we all know, Barack Obama was one of the most evil, most corrupt Presidents our country has ever seen. Nevertheless, the media has done nothing but portray him as a well-spoken man of honor who can do no wrong. A new book, however, reveals Obama’s true nature quite well.

Atlantic staff writer Edward-Isaac Dovere’s new book, Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats, paints a more realistic picture of the alleged “unifier” who sat in the Oval Office and did everything he could destroy our nation for eight years.

“More often: ‘I didn’t think it would be this bad.’ Sometimes: ‘I didn’t think we’d have a racist, sexist pig.’ Depending on the outrage of the day … a passing ‘that f***ing lunatic’ with a shake of his head,” Obama said of Trump in a private conversation, according to the book. But he didn’t stop there. TheBlaze reports:

“He’s a madman,” Obama allegedly told “big donors looking to squeeze a reaction out of him in exchange for the big checks they were writing to his foundation.”

Dovere noted that Obama unleashed his strongest condemnation of Trump when he was “speaking to foreign leaders — including Vladimir Putin, amid the investigation of Russian election interference and links between Trump and Moscow — without any aides on the call,” according to the Guardian, which published excerpts of the book.”‘That corrupt motherf***er,” Obama allegedly said of Trump for holding phone calls with the Russian president without aides on the line, according to the book that will debut next week.

Dovere claims that during the 2016 Republican primary, Obama originally preferred Trump to be the GOP presidential nominee because he saw him as a weaker presidential candidate than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). “Trump was nowhere near as clever as the hard-right Texas senator, the runner-up in the Republican primary in 2016,” the Guardian reported of Dovere’s book.

The book also reveals that Jill Biden doesn’t like Kamala Harris, whom she reportedly said could “go f*** herself” after she offered reasonable criticisms of our current President*.

Democrats love to portray Obama as good and decent, but it turns out he’s just like the rest of the hypocrites on the Left — disgusting.

A former advisor to Barack Obama was just arrested on some major charges. Former White House education advisor Seth Andrew faces charges related to a plot to steal nearly $220,000 from a public charter school network he founded.

Andrew was arrested in hi $2 million New York City home, and the charges seem pretty damning. CNBC reports:

The founder of Democracy Prep Public Schools is accused of using more than half of the allegedly stolen money from that network to maintain a bank account minimum that gave him a more favorable interest rate for a mortgage on his and Zak’s Manhattan residence. Zak was not charged in the case.

Prosecutors said Andrew in 2019 — more than two years after severing ties with Democracy Prep — looted a series of escrow accounts he had previously set up for individual schools within Democracy Prep’s network, and then used their funds to open a business account in the name of one of the schools at a bank.

A surveillance photo from a bank, which was included in a criminal complaint, show Andrew at that bank, where he was closing one of the schools’ escrow account there in October 2019.

Andrew is seen in that photo wearing a yellow hat, which an FBI agent noted in the complaint “is essentially Andrew’s ‘calling card,’” as it signifies a connection to Democracy Prep “and his leadership of it.”

He is charged with wire fraud, money laundering and making false statements to a financial institution, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which is prosecuting the case. The charges carry a maximum possible prison term of 30 years, but Andrew is almost certain to get far less time than that if convicted, given federal sentencing guidelines.

“Andrew is not only alleged to have stolen the schools’ money but also to have used the stolen funds to obtain a savings on a mortgage for a multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartment,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss says. “Seth Andrew abused his position as a founder of a charter school network to steal from the very same schools he helped create.”

This is just the latest example of corruption coming out of the Obama Administration. The people the former President surrounded himself with are all horrible swamp creatures. They’re not alone in government either — and it’s time to drain that swamp.

If the Biden presidency seems a lot like the Obama presidency, there may be a reason for that. According to a Fox News host, President* Biden isn’t in charge. While many have speculated that Vice President Kamala Harris is secretly running the show, one Fox host says her sources have told her who is really running things — and he’s a man who is not eligible to be President.

On Sunday Morning Futures, host Maria Bartiromo revealed who, according to her sources, is really running Washington. “He almost wants to prove to Obama that I can do what you couldn’t do when it comes to pandering to the liberal base and implementing progressive policy,” guest Charlie Kirk said during the segment.

“Ah!” Bartiromo replied. “That’s what it is. I know he’s on the phone all the time with Obama and I’m hearing that he’s running things from behind the scenes.”

She didn’t say who her sources are or what exactly they revealed past that. However, if this is true, it is a flagrant violation of our constitution, which bars someone from serving as President past two terms in office. It doesn’t specifically say anything about a former President whispering orders in the ear of the current President, but one can assume that this is not allowed either.

The Democrat Party is corrupt, and it’s not unknown for them to take orders from Obama in general. As Barack Obama’s former right-hand-man, it seems likely that Biden would listen and do as he is told. After all, his cognitive faculties are in question for a reason.

Watch it below:

On Tuesday, a deranged individual opened fire at King Sooper’s grocery store. Ahmad Al-Issa murdered 10 people, including a 51-year-old police officer during the attack. According to reports, the shooter was sympathetic to terrorist organization ISIS and hated President Donald Trump.

While liberals and the media enjoy blaming shootings on President Trump and conservatives, it is impossible this time, as Al-Issa’s Facebook page reveals that he hates President Trump, whom he refers to as a “d*ck” who “inherited a growing economy” and a low unemployment rate yet “won because of racism.”

Since the shooter is a Middle-Eastern man who hates President Trump, naturally Barack Obama spoke out against terrorism committed by those who support ISIS — right? Wrong. He blamed white supremacy, misogyny, and other ridiculous things.

“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” Obama said. “It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence.”

“It’s time for leaders everywhere to listen to the American people when they say enough is enough – because this is a normal we can no longer afford,” Obama says — something that sounds very much like President Trump pointing out that we should listen to Americans when they speak up. President Trump, of course, was “canceled” by social media companies because he said similar things in the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol incident.

Al-Issa has been charged with 10 counts of murder, but liberals don’t care about him. They don’t care about the people who died. They aren’t interested in solving the mental health issues behind every single mass murder. They just want to use his actions to push gun control.

Whether a person is gay or not doesn’t matter. As you probably noticed during the past two election cycles, President Trump managed to amass a lot of support in the LGBTQ community. Let’s be clear: that support was higher for Democrats, especially Barack Obama when he was running for re-election in 2012 and announced for purely political purposes that he supports same-sex marriage. But many forget that Obama’s stance shifed suddenly when he needed the poll numbers. Now, a new book reveals that his stance hasn’t shifted all that much — at least behind the scenes.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” This quote isn’t from Pat Robertson. It’s not from Lindsey Graham. It’s not from any conservative. These words were spoken by Barack Obama in 2008. In 1996, however, when asked about his stance on gay marriage by a Chicago-area gay newspaper, he said, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” In a later questionnaire for the same newspaper, he said “Undecided” in 1998. Later, he said he favored civil unions, but not marriage. “I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage…” he said in 2004 before settling back on “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” which he repeated during an appearance on MTV. As you can see, Obama’s belief on the subject shifts seemingly constantly — and his loyalty to the gay community with it.

Now, having apparently settled on “gay marriage is fine” for political purposes, one might expect Obama to support a gay man for President. After all, if he’s good enough to get married, he’s good enough to be President, right? Not according to Obama. “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency,” by the Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen, show that Obama was still the same old homophobic bigot he’s always been in 2019.

During a meeting with elite black donors, Obama shared his thoughts on Pete Buttigieg’s presidential prospects. Via The Hill:

“He’s thirty-eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself— “ big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

That’s right. The President liberals credit with gay marriage said that Buttigieg is too gay to be President. And he did so after the man came to him for advice in handling the very brand of homophobia Obama exhibited in that speech.

No matter your views on homosexuality, one thing is certain. Obama built much of his reputation on his alleged support for the community. He did this despite a mountain of evidence that he was not genuine. After people gave him the benefit of the doubt, he betrayed that community broadly and one member of it specifically — a man who sought his guidance and trusted him. That’s the real Barack Obama.
