Honor a tribal king, who committed genocide against other tribes through his wife's horrible and extensive terrorism? Honor a Communist thrusting his own country into an abyss of now committing genocide against White people and abject poverty? Who does Obama fool?

You mean the "values" like condemning "deadbeat dads" so that under his presidency, cops would use their pistol like a lasso to stop a deadbeat dad from running? Don't congratulate yourself or blame anyone else for your legacy.

America, you stink! You are ALL a bunch of marriage NAZIs. That can't be overstated.

NSA Officials ‘Furious’ At Obama, Say He Knew Of Foreign Leader Spying
Written by: Daniel Jennings Politics 1 Comment Print This Article

With the White House claiming President Obama did not know the United States was listening to the phone conversations of leaders of friendly nations, officials within the National Security Agency are pushing back, saying Obama’s own administration approved of the spying.
This all comes as members of the media and some in Congress are beginning to ask: What did the president know, and when did he know it?
Around 35 heads of government, including friends of the United States that pose no military or terrorist threat to the US, were targeted. The NSA surveillance threatens to undermine not only US foreign policy but possibly national security.
“A grave breach of trust,” and “completely unacceptable” are how German Chancellor Angela Merkel described allegations that the NSA hacked her smartphone. The allegations were exposed by the German magazine Der Spiegel and seem to have been confirmed by German spy agencies. Additionally, the Spanish newspaper El Mundo reported that the NSA monitored 60 million calls within Spain during a single month last year – a revelation that threatens relations with that country.
If these allegations, are true, they could damage US national security by turning important allies against America. Germany is the largest and richest nation in the European Union. Germany also hosts military forces and German forces did participate in operations in Afghanistan.
Revisit the counsel of great men and learn how to reclaim the quality of government we once enjoyed.

The surveillance allegations are apparently threatening negotiations to create a free trade zonebetween the US and the EU.

The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank said it “stretches credulity to think that the United States was spying on world leaders without the president’s knowledge.”

It must be so disheartening to know the American people have put up a wall between themselves, and the self serving anti-American Democrat party. Nothing, absolutely nothing they can say or do will move one voter to their side in the election.

I know, Trump’s fondness of dictators certainly convinces everyone that he values freedom and democracy.

The Democrats had a slogan that wasn't working so they have a new one, For The People. What people would that be? They split their people up into little groups, Black, white, old, young, transgender, etc. So when they get around to just plain old Americans like the Republicans do, let me know. I will give them a look.
