Former First Lady Blames Trump for Putting Family in Danger. Here’s What Happened.

Oh brother.

Published

on

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has stated in her new book that her family was put in danger recently and the person to blame for the whole debacle is none other than President Donald Trump.

According to Obama, the president publicized a conspiracy theory that grew in popularity and, somehow, placed her family at risk, a move she says she cannot forgive him for.

Obama was referring to the “birther” conspiracy that Trump said he was investigating before he ran for president in 2016. The claim was that former President Obama was born in Kenya and was not a United States citizen.

She says in her soon-to-be-released book that Trump put her family under threat of attack with the comments. The Washington Post obtained an early copy of the book and published excerpts on Thursday.

“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” she wrote in the book.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?” she wondered. “What if that person went looking for our girls?”

“Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk,” she added. “And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Obama could have been referencing the unfortunate events that followed upon the “PizzaGate” conspiracy theory that had been popular on social media. One adherent to the conspiracy showed up armed at one of the targets of the conspiracy and was arrested for trespassing.

It seems odd that the former First Lady would be laying the blame for this conspiracy theory on President Trump, when it had been around since the beginning of Obama’s presidency and a little bit before.

What she seems to be saying is that Trump’s supporters are more psychologically unhinged than previous conservatives and Republicans have been, thus they are more of a threat to her and her family than those who held to this “birther” nonsense years ago.

It’s a sweeping generalization that’s simply not true. The vast majority of folks who support Trump are just Americans who are fed up with government intrusion preventing them from realizing their dreams and being able to provide for their families.

Leftists become enraged when they are generalized in such a way and lumped into one big group, yet it seems they have no issue doing the same to conservatives. The hypocrisy is maddening.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

Published

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
