  • Obama was also a lying con man and a salesman who delivers great speeches. Obama was also a war criminal whose drone attacks murdered innocent people in the Middle East and who expanded Bush’s two wars in the Middle East into 7 wars. Obama also authorized oil drilling in the arctic twice during his presidency

  • Totally lost respect for Obama when Henry Kissenger was honoured under the Obama administration. 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.

  • Obama as president really made a difference. Good & bad. Depending which side of the fence you are. But, for those who can cross it, will find & say goodness in him while he is living. It is really tiring an honest day's work.

  • I am not a fan of trump. However I want to ask one question Can anyone tell me one actual achievement of Obama being president of USA for 8 years. 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.

  • Despite having a vocabulary...alas...he was never the real "ruler" of USA, during os term time. Presidents are like ice cream sellers. They come and go....yet....theres always, ALWAYS, the "Burocracy-Deep-State-Military-Industrial-Complex" that is ever present in power...and rules. To them: Broadly speaking....: 1889, Power line harmonic radiation. Supression of Earths natural magnetic field. 1918, radio era began. Powerfull LF and VLF frequencies pumped out to magnetosphere. 1918, Spanish influenza. 1957, the radar era. Hundres of powerful military early warning stations littered high altitude latitudes of northen hemisphere. Milions of microwave energy surged skyward. Asian flue of 1957. 1968, satellite era began. Hundreds launched. Although, they had weak broadcast power, but compounded the already existing radio wave pollution in the magnetosphere. Hong Kong flue of 1968. Next, Haarp activation and the beguining of the wireless era, cell phones included (4g and 5g etc) Result? Porphyrins and the Basis of Life... Marconi, the idiot savant, learned his lesson quickly (or did he🤔😔) about the dire effects of eletromagnetic radiation and its interaction/disturbance within Human Self Organising Biology(and other animals/insects. Bees specialy!)...because dear reader, for the great luck ( or curse)of the indewling Life aspect, incarnating within the Biologicaly Self Organising presets of Inception, these Bioverses are, after all, responsible for automating Trillllllllions of processes...Self Organisation fractals no less!! Let that, sink in! Pregnancies being THE best example. Or does the reader think thats it the mother (of ANY species) that assembles their pristine, profound, Highly Complex, offsprings....??? 🤔🤔🤔 indeed... Such hubris does our species have, that incarnating life awhereness in symbiosis with these Self Organising Bioverses, that it goes on destroying it all!!! 😔😔😔 I mean the military not ""Global Warming"" (it should not take an advanced human being to perceive that it is the SUN, that does it all. RA) That military fiat currency is best used for the emancipation of the Human race..but no.......100000s of years of stupidity culminate in some curious choices🤔 and genetic predispositions🤔 Free Will indeed... How very advanced this present reiteration of incarnating humanity upon this Yuga is🤔. Greatly advanced🤔😂😂😂 I do believe i have seen more inteligent potential sentience in Cats( despite their neural interfaces not allowing them to aproach human biology IQ levels) then in our "species"🤔...Very much so..🤔

  • 11:00 "You lie!" There are three very different reactions here: Biden looks shocked and disappointed at the disrespect for a sitting President. Nancy Pelosi looks enraged and vindictive. Obama is unfazed as he scans the room to see what's going on then calmly and rationally continues. Which of these temperaments makes for a better President...

  • Yes, he speaks so well. His policies and weak stance around the world resulted in a country that was financially unstable and was leaning toward America being a sub servient of the UN and the global collective. Uncontrolled immigration, undue taxation on the nation, EPA standards that destroyed businesses, unleashed isis that ran amok, Russia taking over countries, NK firing missiles, China taking over our assets and growing their military as we degraded ours. Record number of people on welfare and people on part time because full time by the employers would mean higher health insurance. But, yes, he speaks so well.

  • A president who can see clearly his own shortcomings is more relatable to the people.. He didnt deny anything.. He owns up to everything. He's setting a very good example for us to see and follow. He's human just like you and me. Trump didnt make himself relatable. He believes he never did any mistakes which is impossible. His mother shouldve teach him better for him to have a decent character

  • Most of what he says is spot in, however his memory is selective. What Trump is doing may be dangerous for democracy, but so was a phony impeachment trial brought on by the Dems. Both parties need to knock off the nonsense. It's going to be tough for the GOP to bite the bullet and accept Biden as president, especially since there are some legitimate questions regarding the election. For the good of the nation though, Trump needs to either produce undeniable evidence that there was massive voter fraud, or concede. Then we move on and hopefully heal.
