Obama just inspired a California voter to #DemExit

Obama just inspired a California voter to #DemExit

Presidential screed against Donald Trump was last straw.

As a Tea Party Democrat, I have routinely covered that party’s events as a Legal Insurrection author.

I have been closely following the #DemExit movement that is afoot, as evidenced by DNC convention-week demonstrations in which delegates and other progressives decried the #DNCLeak and Hillary Clinton’s rigged nomination and blatant displays of party unhappiness during her acceptance speech that the party’s officials tried to hide.

Following the convention, it has become transparently clear that the Democratic Party’s sole mission is to destroy Donald Trump completely.

Enter President Barack Hussein Obama:

In an extraordinary denunciation of Donald J. Trump’s temperament and competence, President Obama urged leaders of the Republican Party on Tuesday to withdraw their endorsements of Mr. Trump’s candidacy, flatly calling him “unfit to serve” as the nation’s 45th president.

The hectoring, vile screed has been parroted by the elite media. Nevermind that this is an unprecedentedly nasty interjection of a sitting POTUS into a presidential campaign! Forget the fact the anti-Trump rant was set in the White House in conjunction with a joint news conference with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, so Obama smeared a potential American leader in front of a foreign dignitary!

The press, already known to be colluding with the Democratic Party to take down Bernie Sanders, is now working overtime to obliterate Trump.  As an extra bonus, the elite media is now wildly speculating on Trump’s mental state. Perhaps they want to review this tape of Hillary Clinton, saying she will raise taxes on the middle class, and report back on the state of her mental health?

Then again, Obama is the Master of the Unfit Presidency! Let’s review the most recent record:

  • The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the release of four Americans.
  • Frustrations are mounting over the complete and utter failure of the Obamacare co-ops.
  • The economy has had its worst recovery since the 1930’s Depression, and family incomes are at least $17,000 less/year than they would have been if the Team Obama had not tampered with it with Obamacare, Stimulus and other budget tricks.

The press collusion is especially troubling, as they have completely rescinded their First Amendment responsibilities. TV Networks have given 50 times more coverage to Gold Star father Khizr Khan than Gold Star mother Pat Smith. The American media also seems uninterested in reporting that Khan is getting paid to assist in visa programs that Clinton would likely further promote if she became President. Furthermore, the “Khan Con” stems from an Trump’s interview with former Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos, which has been completely distorted in the subsequent coverage.

The good news for Donald Trump may be that Obama’s track record in election intervention is rather bad:

So, as it is reported that Obama plans to campaign for Hillary Clinton in October, I imagine the margin of Trump’s victory will be YUGE!

However, as of today, I am deeply disturbed that the elite media clearly colluding to destroy Trump, as Clinton is such a weak candidate that she can’t win on her record. Brandon Bang tweeted the following:

Americans don’t lie cheaters. And while I planned to retain to keep my Democratic Party registration so I could vote for the least toxic candidates during primaries, these developments were more than I could bear.

Obama has inspired this Californian to join the #DemExit movement. I have re-registered as “No Party Preference”.

First there was the Streisand effect. What we have here is the Trump effect. An Obama critique (or screed?) is pure gold now..bring it on.

Trump is just pure unfit. I have questioned his mental health for almost a year and he only gets worse. My guess is Alzheimer’s on top of multiple personality disorders. Have been nevertrump long before it was a hashtag.
They pretty much all suck, most all politicians. Trump is in a class of his own – most like a South American petty little vindictive dictator wannabe.


Yep…they twist and turn and spin and outright lie.

It’s what they do, since they can’t actually provide a reasoned argument for their side.

    A very long time ago, I joined Facebook due to the incessant prodding of my circle of professional contacts. One such contact described herself as rabidly progressively uber-liberal and thought Obama was the second coming. She also thought Sarah Palin was dumber than rocks.

    After Obama’s first State of the Union Address, she posted that had to be the most wonderful speech she ever heard and what a great vision he has for the country. I had listened to the speech myself and was not as impressed. I then procured an online transcript for reference. I also found an online transcript of Palin’s speech before the 2008 RNC.

    I replied to her Facebook post with an annotation of Obama’s State of the Union with excerpts from Palin’s speech to show how they actually said the same things. For example, Obama said the U.S. needed to increase its domestic oil production whereas Palin said drill, baby, drill.

    Needless to say, without responding to any of the annotations, she called me every derogatory name known to mankind with a few more unknown ones thrown in.

Obama had absolutely no effect on the Brexit vote in the UK. We were going to do it anyway – we just wouldn’t tell anyone how we intended to vote. Obama just made himself look like the idiot he is. I sense the same thing is happening in your Presidential election – Clinton tries to beat Trump over the head with her politically correct cr*p & Trump just talks straight through it and shows everyone just how stupid it is – “Look the Emperor has no clothes”. The swing voters like the fact that Trump calls Hillary out but won’t admit to ANYONE how they intend to vote. This has nothing to do with either candidates fitness for office. My own view for what it’s worth is that Obama has been the worst US president ever. By a distance. I doubt he likes me either.

Leslie, I’m sure there are some individuals in California who quit the Democratic Party over this. However, the overal trend shows something else. Here is the California general election polling from RCP:
CA is not polled very often, but the spread is Clinton +22. Obama won the state by less than 10 points in 2012 (IRRC 2008 was the same). Young and Latino are registering to vote in record numbers here:

You know what? Every once in a while the truth slips out!
This is the first time in over a year that Crooked Hillary told the American people the truth.

Clinton, saying she will raise taxes on the middle class!

And you know what the mind dead crowd cheered and clapped at that news?

I’ve been saying this since the traitorous performance of the 2014 lame duck Congress. Actually it started in ernest in 2013 when republican leadership trashed their own Voters.
The republican party as is must be destroyed. That belief is now infecting the democrat party as well.
You’ve seen earlier today & over this year how a segment of commentators on this site refuse to understand what is going on around them. They’re locked into their positions.
Revolutions are usually messy. Welcome to the revolution.

      Whoa, RagsaLot strikes again, actually, he strikes out again. Too damned bad this isn’t baseball cuz, then, three strikes and you’re out. Still, Trump is a strong political leader, he has struck down your Hector, Cruz the Lesser, the soloist!

      Of course, you would support anyone like Cruz the Lesser, or Ryan the UnMagnificent, or McConnell Leader of the Rinoband.

          Something I have wondered about for months. He’s a lawyer. Does he perform like this in court? And, if so, how many times has he been cited for contempt?

          Ragspierre in reply to secondwind. | August 3, 2016 at 9:28 pm

          Fair question. I don’t post and present in court the same way. You’d be an idiot if you did, right?

          I have been cited for contempt once, long before becoming an attorney. I refused to comply with the orders of a regulatory agency, and the judge said I was “contumacious”, which was a term I’d never heard. The courtroom was lined with old portraits of Texas founders, all of whom would very likely be contumacious as hell.

          I went to jail for the only time in my life, and was freed on a writ of habeas corpus, along with a citation to statutory law supporting my position.

          I guess it would be fair to say I am a fighter. If that hurts your feelings, tough shit.

NPR this morning had a long conversation about Trump’s religious faith which included a discussion about the families church and the pastor and the affect it may have had on the Donald. Funny, I don’t remember those conversations about Obama and Rev. Wright and his church.

    OnlyRightDissentAllowed in reply to DanJ1. | August 3, 2016 at 4:33 pm

    You may not recall that, but it happened. In addition, Obama made an address on national TV about his religious beliefs and relationship to Wright. Don’t remember? Then you better get checked for Alzheimer’s – because it happened.

    Don’t believe me? Well there is always Google. I just found 5 articles.

    BTW, it is possible that NPR might have found other issues relevant in their examination of Obama. Asking about other issues doesn’t make them biased. That is why they have producers and editors. They have discretion (2nd meaning) to ask the questions they think their audience wants to hear.

“Following the convention, it has become transparently clear that the Democratic Party’s sole mission is to destroy Donald Trump completely”

Hasn’t that been the sole mission of the Republican Party for the last 8 years?

Actually, the Republican party seems to be conspiring to destroy itself. The House can’t agree on any act despite having a unassailable majority. All the Senate Republicans can do is filibuster.

I think Trump is a danger, all right — to a whole bunch of people living off of contracts with the government, and those who sell their influence.

I think the powers that wish to continue to be are hugely upset that their cozy relationships may get severed, perhaps for a whole four years.

I do not have delusions that DJT is some sort of superman: I simply notice that the Republicans having conniptions like the lady elephants in Dumbo, based on wildly exaggerated talking points from the Democrats. Republicans were much smarter about this kind of thing, when George Bush and Dick Cheney got busy making a fool of John F’n Kerry. So, did the upper levels of the Republican Party forget what they learned then? Does nobody read or view the underlying information?

The only explanation I can come up with for this phenomenon is money, and the people having conniptions belong to the very wealthy families of this country.

C2H6O Thank you God.

      See, this is a PERFECT display of pure hate by the T-rump suckers here.

      I was thinking about this the other day. I have an MBA, with an emphasis in marketing.

      If if wanted to, I could be the king-cat-daddy of up-thumbs here every day with no problem. I could just post what I knew would be popular.

      I don’t and I won’t, because I have what’s called “integrity”. My own honor is WAY more important than approval by a bunch of people who support a man without character.

      Like the great cartoonist Rameriz, I have an opinion and all of you are welcome to it. Like it-the-fluck-or-not.

This sort of thing would ahve happened no matter who the candidate.
At least with Trump he handles it well enough to make it a net positive.

Actually Leslie I have changed my mind. How could anyone possibly support a eating-chicken-with-a-fork-baby-hater like Trump?

Time for LI to give Ragspierre a rest. There’s no value in his repeated name-calling. Let him come back later with good points as he’s been known to make much of the time.

    Anchovy in reply to Rab. | August 3, 2016 at 7:37 pm

    No. If you don’t want to read his posts, don’t.


    He/she/it has single-handedly brought what was an otherwise high-cache blog down into the toilet.

    One thing for sure: a lot of visitors and potential commentators visiting this blog won’t be coming back after reading his constant, puerile rants.

    Why Professor Jacobson has let he/she/it that do this to his blog is a real mystery.

      Ragspierre in reply to | August 3, 2016 at 8:23 pm

      This is hilarious from at least two POV…

      1. you can’t have read my posts without knowing my gender (very male, father of eight, faithful husband all my adult life), and…

      2. your valueless, rote one-note samba posts on virtually every subject (GOP BAD) are REAL “puerile rants”…!!!

You lost but seem clueless that you did! Talk about a broken record.


Some things to note:

1. was that “#nevertrum stuff” OR was it directly on point with all the Ryan bullshit that’s been posted here for two days?

2. did it display the fecklessness and downright dithering of the T-rump camp on the matter of supporting Ryan?

3. was the poster attacking me as being unaware that Der Donald won the primary, which was an insult to my intelligence?

I don’t suffer fools…or their attacks on me…lightly. “He fights” is one of those things some of you T-rump suckers pretend to value. I am an old oil field and construction site guy. You don’t lie to me or about me without being prepared for a knife fight.
