Did Obama Provide A Peaceful Transfer of Power? — Opinion

Hmmm…

Published

on

During a recent White House press conference, President Trump received a question from Playboy reporter Brian Karem that stirred a firestorm of controversy. His question was, “Win, lose or draw in this election, will you commit here, today, for a peaceful transferal of power after the election?” The President responded, “We’re going to have to see what happens.”

Not willing to miss an opportunity to stir the pot, Joe Biden came out of his basement and made the following pronouncement: “Military Will Remove Trump from the White House if He Refuses to Leave.” Biden said that he had been talking with some retired military persons, and because of that meeting, he said, “I promise you; I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”

There are two issues I want to raise in this commentary: First, somebody needs to ask Joe Biden if he thought the transfer of power from Obama to Trump was a peaceful transfer? The second issue is what exactly does Joe mean when, as he says, “They,” referring to the military?

Let’s explore the first issue concerning transfer of power from the Obama administration to the incoming Trump administration. Look at all the things the Obama administration did prior to the election to defeat Donald Trump. Then, during the transition time, the Obama administration falsified FISA warrants to spy on the Trump organization, and after the president was inaugurated, they continued to investigate false allegations in order to overthrow Donald Trump’s new presidency.

We have seen examples time and time again where the Justice Department, the Attorney General, the head of the FBI, the head of the CIA and other cabinet level positions actively campaigned to either stop Donald Trump from winning the election, or to get him indicted under impeachment as soon as possible after the election.

When an outgoing administration is undermining the credibility of a new administration, how could anyone consider this to be a peaceful transition is beyond me. Criminal activity has taken place in order to keep Donald Trump from succeeding as president. For 2 ½ years members of the House continuously lodged accusations and vicious attacks on the integrity of President Donald Trump. Yet when it came time for the House to issue impeachment charges, neither of the two charges made reference to the accusations that the House Democratic leadership and former members of the Obama administration had launched against President Trump.

Any person who would look at the Obama administration activities during the transition to power of the Trump administration could only conclude that the Obama administration was doing everything it could, including criminal activity, to circumvent the peaceful transition of power. After the new administration was sworn in with a duly elected President of the United States, their activities continued.

According to the Federalist columnist, Mollie Hemingway, in her article of May 8, 2020, she says the, “Obama, Biden oval office meeting on January 5, 2017 was key to the entire anti-Trump operation.” She says, “Information released in the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case it brought against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn confirms the significance of a January 5, 2017, meeting at the Obama White House. It was at this meeting that Obama gave guidance to key officials who would be charged with protecting his administration and its utilization of secretly funded Clinton campaign research. This research alleged Trump was part of a treasonous plot to collude with Russia and from it being discovered or stopped by the incoming administration.”

The evidence above is not in dispute; it is a matter of the record. Yet, how could any reasonable person read what the Obama administration was doing 15 days before the new administration was to take office and not conclude that the aim of the transition of power was far from peaceful? It was an outright attack by the Obama administration, orchestrated from the Oval Office. What is very important is whether Joe Biden was an active participant in the meeting. The following were the others in attendance at that January 5, 2017 meeting:

Sally Yates, acting AG; James Comey, head of the FBI; CIA Director John Brennan; and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper briefed Obama on Russia-related matters in the Oval Office. Biden and Rice also attended. So, Mr. Biden. You were part of the planning to overthrow the incoming Trump administration. It is time for you to come clean and tell the American people the truth and to admit your involvement in the greatest attempt ever in the history of the United States to overthrow a duly elected president.

Now to the second issue of sending in the military to remove the President: Mr. Biden, referring to your quote who is, “They?” Are you suggesting that the Pentagon should go in and arrest the president and overthrow him from the White House? The president of United States by the Constitution is the Commander-in-Chief of all the military, so I ask you Mr. Biden, who’s going to give the order? Are you going to give it before you become inaugurated as president? You have no power over the military until they swear you in to the office of president. Are you possibly suggesting that the military should start, on their own authority, a coup against the President of the United States?

You are suggesting that the military should complete what the Obama/Biden administration tried to do but failed in 2016 and 2017, and which the Democratic party then tried for over 3 more years. If the military were to overthrow the president, why do you think they would return that power to you? You suggest that you will abandon the Constitution for military rule. Once you open that door, you can never close it. Do you really think that if you can get the military to take over the government, they will ever trust you?

You and your campaign’s thrust for power tells me you would gladly sacrifice this nation to try and get rid of Donald Trump.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Published

on

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…
