Book: Arrogant Obama Felt American People “Turned on Him” after 2016 Election

A book by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker claims President Obama saw it as a “personal insult” that Donald Trump won the 2016 election and felt that the American people had “turned on him.”

The Daily Mail reports that the book, titled, Obama: The Call Of History reveals:

The former president went from being confident that Hillary Clinton would beat Donald Trump to seeing it as a ‘personal insult’ that she lost.

Obama could not believe the American people had ‘turned on him’ for a man he had written off as a ‘cartoon’.

As the dust settled Obama told his family that ‘this hurts’ and blamed Clinton who ‘brought many of her troubles on herself’ and ran a ‘scripted, soulless campaign’.

The eye-popping details are in the new edition of ‘Obama: The Call Of History’ by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker.

The book was originally released in July 2017 but has been updated with extensive new reporting throughout Obama’s time in office – and the run through of election day is electrifying.

According to the Daily Mail, the book states that Obama thought to himself that the American people “simply could not have decided to replace him with a buffoonish showman whose calling cards had been repeated bankruptcies, serial marriages and racist dog whistles.”

Watch: Waters Confronts Big Banks on Student Debt Crisis, Fails Miserably

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) failed miserably when she tried to blame the student loan crisis on big banks–despite President Obama nationalizing student loan programs in 2010.

During a House Financial Services Committee hearing earlier this morning, Waters said,  “Today there are more than 44 million Americans that owe … $1.56 trillion in student loan debt.  Last year, 1 million student loan borrowers defaulted which is on top of the 1 million borrowers who defaulted the year before.”

She then asked bank executives, “What are you guys doing to help us with the student loan debt? Who would like to answer first? Mr. Monihan? Big bank?”

“We stopped making student loans in 2007 or so,” he responded.

“So you don’t do it anymore?” she asked before moving on to the next banker, “Mr. Corbyn?”

He replied “We exited student lending in 2009.”

Waters moved on, “Mr. Dimon?”

“When the government took over student lending in 2010, we stopped doing all student lending,” he replied.

Investors Business Daily points out that due to the nationalization of student loans, federal student loan debt skyrocketed from $153.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion by the end of 2017:

In 2010, President Obama effectively nationalized student lending by cutting banks — which had been offering government-backed loans to students — out of the equation and having the government make the loans itself.

“By cutting out the middleman, we’ll save the American taxpayers $68 billion in the coming years,” Obama said when he signed this change into law. “That’s real money.”

As a result, federal student loan debt shot up from $154.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion by the end of 2017.

Media FOIA Requests Skyrocketed After Trump’s Election

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by mainstream media outlets into the EPA skyrocketed immediately after President Trump took office, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The Beacon writes, “The New York Times, for example, made just 13 FOIA requests during the four years of Obama’s second term, sending 3 in 2013, 1 in 2014, 7 in 2015, and 2 in 2016. The number of FOIA requests the Times sent for Obama’s entire second term was nearly quadrupled in the first year of Trump’s presidency alone, when the Times sent 59 FOIA requests to the EPA.”

Since Trump took office, New York Times reporters have made over 100 FOIA requests–a 669 percent increase from the requests made during the four years of Obama’s second term.

The Washington Post filed just one EPA FOIA request during Obama’s second term, but has now filed 43 requests since President Trump was elected.

“The sharp increase in FOIA requests to the EPA was also apparent at Politico (15 requests in Obama’s second term, 198 since Trump took office), The Hill (20 requests in Obama’s second term, 67 since Trump took office), CNN (25 requests in Obama’s second term, 47 since Trump took office), Buzzfeed (18 requests in Obama’s second term, 38 since Trump took office), and ABC News (4 requests in Obama’s second term, 32 since Trump took office),” writes the Free Beacon.

Ilhan Omar: Trump “Really Not” Human

Embattled freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggested President Trump was not human yesterday when asked to clarify her recent remarks in a Politico story in which she was critical of President Obama.

Omar has since backtracked her Politico comments after blasting President Obama for the “caging of kids” at the southern border and blaming his administration for the immigration crisis. She also said his message of “hope and change” was a “mirage.”

A Fox News reporter asked Omar, “Do you think that President Obama is the same as President Trump?” She responded, “Absolutely not. That is silly to even equate the two. One is human. The other is really not.”

Obama Hopes to Train “A Million Baracks and Michelles” Who Can Change the World

Former President Obama said he plans to create a “university for social change” where he hopes to see “a million Baracks and Michelles” trained to change the world during a speech in Canada where he promoted the Obama Foundation.

Speaking to a crowd in Winnipeg, Obama said, “If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something…if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world, hope is achievable.”

The Washington Examiner writes that Obama “told a packed arena at Bell MTS Place how he plans to create a “university for social change ‘that will serve as a hub for young people in the U.S. and around the world who are skeptical of the “old institutions.'”

The former president will head to Vancouver and Calgary to continue his speaking events in Canada.

Pompeo Rebukes Obama Foreign Policy in Cairo Speech: “Age of Self-Inflicted American Shame is Over”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a scathing rebuke of President Obama’s foreign policy today–in the same Middle Eastern city where the former president launched his “apology tour.”

In 2009, President Obama gave his speech titled “A New Beginning” at Cairo University, where he apologized for the United States and said the “fear and anger” Americans felt from 9/11 “led us to act contrary to our ideals.”

Speaking at American University in Cairo, Pompeo said (without mentioning Obama by name), “It was here, in this city, another American stood before you. He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology.”

“He told you that 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East,” he continued. “He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed ‘a new beginning.’ The results of these misjudgments have been dire. In falsely seeing ourselves as a force for what ails the Middle East, we were timid in asserting ourselves when the times – and our partners – demanded it.”

Pompeo went on to say that under Obama’s leadership, the United States “grossly underestimated the tenacity and viciousness of radical Islamism, a debauched strain of the faith that seeks to upend every other form of worship or governance. ISIS drove to the outskirts of Baghdad as America hesitated. They raped and pillaged and murdered tens of thousands of innocents. They birthed a caliphate across Syria and Iraq and launched terror attacks that killed all across continents.”

The Secretary of State also criticized Obama’s Iran deal, and said that President Trump reversed the nation’s “willful blindness to the danger of the [Iranian] regime.”

“The U.S. re-imposed sanctions that should never have been lifted. We embarked on a new pressure campaign to cut off the revenues the regime uses to spread terror and destruction throughout the world. We joined the Iranian people in calling for freedom and accountability,” he said.

Taking another swipe at President Obama’s foreign policy approach, Pomepo said, “The good news is this: The age of self-inflicted American shame is over, and so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering. Now comes the real ‘new beginning,’”
