  • Most of you brainless morons don't even realize what's going on behind the scene. Remember this man obama was elected at his first term, because he was "black" and cheated using the same cheating voter machine. "You will see." Table is turning even those they're telling you it's not and wanting Trump to concede. Did you know obama's second term he lost 3.5 million votes compared to his 2008 win. Trump gained 11 million votes in 2020!! America is at war from within! If you actually take the time to look at obama's track record, he hasn't done much for America and spent too much time in china, and middle east building up relationship to sellout our country to bring china as world power then change our regime to UNITED STATES OF CHINA COMMUNiSM!! There are soo much, you don't know. Remember Trump asking joe "who built the cage, joe?" Many of you may think that Trump built the cage but that is false. Why? Because the cage was built in 2014! Who was the president and vp at the time? obama & biden. When did Trump elected? 2016!! That is just one TRUTH!

  • He was a good leader. But tragically he never came to understand what true democracy is about. Having a country run by only two parties that oppose each other is not democracy. Having a government made up of alliances between multiple parties that represent the broad spectrum of society is. As long as the US continues using the outdated electoral college voting system and using a winner-take-it-all with more than 50% of the vote, the US will never be a beacon of democracy to the rest of world. Canada, Germany, Israel and many more already have far better democracies.

  • “A Promised Land” live up to the promise of being an inimitable pleasure trip through an unexplored path through a hidden landscape of what we call as USA. Wonderfully written, sincere and nuanced, with all Obama's selflessness and accuracy. Obama's word is straightforward, simple to understand, yet full of the fragrances of education. As an outsider, I Believe that his America is exactly what America be supposed to be and is also the America that I visualized in my mind. He is in fact one of the brightest alumni of Harvard From the Preface to 1st chapter bring out the spirit of a noble mind, genuinely caring man who wants to make an optimistic change in his life time and world we exist in. The phrases and portraits indicate who he really is as a genuine human being. As you go through the book , you can listen to Obama's voice and expression clearly. it seems he is speaking exactly to the reader with thoroughly Selected words. This book, and Michelle Obama’s book, overall are the two most inspiring volumes I have ever read out. Let us pray that upcoming Presidents have as much civility, morality, integrity and moral judgement, motivation for good! There is no wonder that it’s a no.1 Bestseller Book! It's an remarkable book. Nothing more needs to be said than this. I definitely recommend it to each and every person. and I am sure that u will not be disappointed after purchasing this incredible book. if u want to buy book online from amazon here is the link

  • 09:10 ... then with this "bolster"ing of facts over fiction with "use" of the "media and tech", you are silencing and voiding the RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH to ALL humanity! we have already witnessed with this Covid episode, they dont care about free speech anymore- only THEIR agenda and "truth" being pushed... to me this means our Constitutional agreement with the People of the governed is being BROKEN!! And this fact proves this "governmental authority" over the people is at an END!!! It cannot be trusted anymore! Each individual is able to think/speak/choose for themselves - T. Jefferson stated that "'whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.'

  • President Obama and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris both come from Black African parents - not African American parents. I think this has probably been an advantage to them not inheriting the inter-generational trauma of being Black in America over the last 400 years. I hope one day a 10 generation African American can become President. Only then will I believe America is healed.

It’s just sad, and I urge viewers to both view old episodes and, please read, and/or immediately, on utube, listen to Jane Mayer explaining that which she discovered in five years of research, ‘Dark Money’…(and, in my words, the corporate capture of everything from the EPA to the democrats and republicans and the republic, itself.)

  • 8 Million Family Homes foreclosed on During Biden/Obama Era. Kamala Harris was DA for the Homeowners against the Banks who Foreclosed, she Lost the Case Siting NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE AGAINST THE BIG BANKS. TENT CITIES SPRUNG UP. U.S. Military was at its Lowest ever since World War 2, & 62,000+ Factories SHUT DOWN in Obamas 8 Years as President. China went from being a Distributor of goods controlling about 1/8 of World Exports to Controlling nearly 2/3 Worldwide Exports. Thats leaving a Country Better off than when you came in to Office? Imagine what a Biden Presidency could like.

Kissenger known war criminal and someone who purposely orchestrated keeping Africa down due to a fear of Africa in particular Nigeria becoming not only a superior military power but also a super power amongst other countries. Read the Kissenger report. Knowing this which he must have known as President why would he honour such a man.

Just one thing which has change the world or life of americans for good. Infact he attacked and destroy many countries like Syria, Yemen, Libya, Algeria and Tunisia in the name of "Democracy". Atleast Trump didn't attack any new country and start a new war front.
