Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said American leadership was stronger under President Trump’s predecessor, according to a Guardian report published Sunday.
Asked if the country stood on sturdier ground under former President Obama’s leadership, McCain said “yes,” according to the report.
“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” said McCain, though he vocally criticized many of the Obama administration’s foreign policy decisions.
McCain also lost to Obama when he ran as the GOP nominee in the 2008 presidential election.
The Arizona Republican was also asked what “message” the president delivered to the U.K. last week when he publicly criticized London’s mayor, shortly after a terror-related attack that left eight people dead and many more wounded.
“What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead,” said McCain, chairman on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
“They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica,” he added.
One of the notable people Trump recently met with was former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Kissinger is celebrated for his leadership and even temper.
His experience and skill when dealing with matters of state and interaction with other nations is invaluable for any administration.
No doubt Kissinger offered advice and guidance to Donald Trump. After meeting with Trump and his people, he had some surprising things to say—at least the media would say so.
From The Hill:
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said in an interview Sunday that President-elect Donald Trump could go down in history as a “very considerable president.”
“Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen,” Kissinger said on CBS’s “Face The Nation.”
“So it is a shocking experience to them that he came in to office. At the same time, extraordinary opportunity.”
Kissinger said every country now has to consider two things.
“One, their perception that the previous president, or the outgoing president, basically withdrew America from international politics, so that they had to make their own assessments of their necessities,” he said.
“And secondly, that here is a new president who’s asking a lot of unfamiliar questions. And because of the combination of the partial vacuum and the new questions, one could imagine that something remarkable and new emerges out of it.”
We know that Obama’s interactions with foreign countries was baffling to many. When he wasn’t apologizing for our nation and our way of life, he seemed to be neglecting important issues. Or letting Secretary of State Clinton operate with far too much power.
Many people assume Trump will also neglect the rest of the world, thanks to his assertion to put America first. But that is far from the truth. Trump is an expert negotiator who has worked with people from all over the world. No doubt he will develop strategies for our foreign relations that will be amicable to all.
Kissinger is right. Trump is a new breed of leadership. But that’s something we’ve needed for a long time.
Michele Bachman publicly stood by Trump and showed her support, saying he has been “working nonstop, 70 days in a row, [he] hasn’t taken a day off,” trying to improve America.
“He is unashamed in standing up for increasing an awareness of God in the United States,” Bachman stated. “He recognizes how important that is and that that is a basis of Western civilization … As a believer in Jesus Christ, I could not be more happy with what I am seeing coming out of the Trump White House. This is beyond my wildest expectations.”
“The president himself is a man of prayer and man who loves to receive prayer,” she stated. “He is a man who, I do believe, understands who the God of the Bible is, and he wants to lift up the God of the Bible here in the United States … The Lord is working mightily in our government, and I believe it is because God is being referenced, God is being lifted up. Prayer is not foreign in the White House; it’s not foreign in the Executive Office Building; looking to God, looking through Bible studies, this is not foreign anymore.”
Bachman believes that Trump is bringing back God values, saying, “he is somebody who gets the fact that the God of the Bible is, He is, He exists, He is real … This president is very bold about the need for God in our country.”
She also had a meeting with Trump and others to talk about the “faith perspective voice” and legislation based on the Bible.
“I’m shocked at how happy I’ve been with what I’ve seen so far,” Bachman stated. “I really believe that it’s because of prayer. I totally believe it’s based on prayer. He’s president because of prayer, the advances we’ve seen are based on prayer, and I think, going forward, that is what we need.”
Michele Bachman firmly believes that Trump is God’s answer to “Make America Great Again.”

President Trump promised to do everything in his power to protect America from illegals and terrorism.
In order to do that he needs to deport many illegals living in America.
But, a Federal Judge Mark Goldsmith, Michigan, just blocked the deportation of 1,000 Iraqi illegals. This will give the illegal a chance to appeal their order of removal.
Goldsmith explained why this deportation will harm the illegals, many of whom are Kurds or Chaldean Christians, more than it will harm the U.S.
“Each petitioner faces the risk of torture or death on the basis of residence in America and publicized criminal records. Many will also face persecution as a result of a particular religious affiliation,” Goldsmith said.
“While cost and efficiency in administering the immigration system are not illegitimate governmental concerns, such interests pale to the point of evaporation when weighed against the potential lethal harm petitioners may suffer.”
For many of these people going back to Iraq would mean a certain death, because most them are actually Christians who were abused in the country because of their faith.
When we talk about not allowing refugees from the Middle East we mean about the Muslim immigrants, but now we have also Christians who are in great danger, they are molested and their loved ones are getting killed.
So, do we continue not allowing anyone or should we allow these people who are facing death every day just for being Christians?

Perhaps all of this commotion about President Trump, his family, his campaign team, and their alleged improper connections to Russia is nothing more than a Democrat-sponsored smoke screen to divert the leftist media (easy to do) from the real scandals involving Hillary, Mr. Obama, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, John Podesta, Huma Abedin, and who knows how many others who might be involved in real and serious cases of corruption and alleged felonies. Stranger things have happened. And that scenario does make sense.
In fact, it would appear possible that Mr. Obama created a Muslim spy ring from Pakistanis who worked as IT employees for various Democratic Congressmen including former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. These IT consultants would be Mr. Imran Awan along with his siblings and spouses.
Now it turns out that the FBI has seized hard-drives from the residence of Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s employee, Imran Awan, which have been smashed in an obvious attempt to destroy whatever data was on them.
“FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.
“Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.”
Mr. Awan is trying to get them back, no doubt, because he must believe they contain incriminating data, and because he also realizes that the FBI has the incredibly advanced technology needed to retrieve data from hard drives, even if they have been physically damaged as these reportedly have.
“An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into ‘serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network’ by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
“Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.”
What is this with this odd aversion that some on the left have to hiring Americans? Was it absolutely necessary to hire Pakistanis to do this work? Were they properly vetted? Or, to be a bit more conspiratorial, were they hired precisely because of other factors not mentioned that uniquely qualified them to perform whatever work they did? Work they now appear to be trying to keep out of the hands of the FBI, fortunately to no avail.
The whole story goes much deeper, but at this point we can conclude that at least Wasserman Schultz, and the IT team headed by Imran Awan, desperately wanted to keep her notebook computer and these hard drives out of the hands of the FBI. They have something to hide.
In fact, all of those players listed at the beginning of this article likely have quite a bit to hide. Just like a good stage magician uses distraction to get the audience to look where nothing is happening so they don’t see what he is really doing, it’s more than just a little likely that the whole Trump fracas is no more than such an effort in distraction.
Keep watching our list of suspects and you’ll likely see the real story.
One of the main targets that liberals have zeroed in on is the new Housing and Urban Development secretary, Ben Carson.
Critiques of Trump’s pick stated Ben Carson is merely a surgeon with no government experience, and therefore isn’t suited for the position.
But Carson just proved all of them wrong with this recent discovery that Obama’s former HUD secretary, Julian Castro, mysteriously missed.
President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.
In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.
“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.
So Ben Carson was mocked by liberals for being unqualified, yet the supposedly qualified Julian Castro created half a trillion dollars in errors?
These bookkeeping”errors” are likely intentional embezzlement by Democrats who were emboldened to do so under Obama.
Now that their crime spree is over, the Democrats are kicking and screaming because this find suggests there are many more government agencies in need of an audit.
Someone is going to pay for this massive waste of taxpayer dollars – the only question is how high does it go? Where was the money embezzled to? Hopefully we can pin the tail on a very important donkey!
Outsiders like Trump and Carson prove that because they are not a part of the swamp, they are just the people we need to keep the government in check.
Just think, if Hillary Clinton had won, we never would have known this was happening!
Last year, Caitlyn Jenner outraged liberals by voting for President Trump. Now, she’s sounding off against him for his decision to ban transgender soldiers from the military.
“I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country’s uniform. Furthermore, this half-baked idea puts all of our service members in harm’s way,” Caitlyn wrote. “Does President Trump intend to just pull 15,000 people out of every critical position to which they are currently assigned? That would disrupt core military missions around the world and needlessly endanger our troops.”
“Over the past two years I have met the most inspiring trans people, and I can testify to the trans community’s incredible resilience and perseverance in the face of enormous discrimination and hate,” she continued. “We are strong, we are beautiful, and we will win. The President must ask himself which side of history he will be on—and reverse his position immediately.”
Caitlyn then described her father’s experience in the military, before concluding, “America’s 15,000 trans service members and 134,000 veterans are much braver than you, Mr. Trump; my allegiance is with them and our country, not you.”
In May, a GOP operative who was investigating Hillary Clinton and attempting to recover her missing emails was found dead in what police have ruled a suicide. Now, chilling new details about the death have been revealed.
Peter W. Smith, 81, was found dead in a Minnesota hotel room with a bag tied over his head and a suicide note by his side. In the note, Smith told authorities there was “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” involved in his death. He then elaborated, explaining he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017.”
Authorities admit that committing suicide by tying a bag over one’s head is “unusual.”
Just last year, Smith assembled a team and attempted to obtain Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails from Russian hackers. He said that his team had found five hacker groups that had the emails. He never believed that Hillary had only deleted the emails because they were “personal.”
Smith played a major role in exposing the “Troopergate” allegations about Bill Clinton. Now, he’s just one name on a length list of people who have died mysteriously before exposing the Clintons.
Clinton insider Dick Morris has revealed that something very disturbing is going on just 2 miles away from the White House. Barack Obama has leased offices near Capitol Hill, and now, reports are coming in that one of those offices is getting really active with many people coming and going at a frenzy-like pace. Morris found out what is going on inside that office, and you’ll be shocked at what he has to say.
Dick Morris is famous as the guy who got Bill Clinton elected twice, but after serving with the Clintons for eight years, he became disgusted with them and resigned. Morris is one of the ex-Clinton insiders to make it out alive, and he is the real deal. Morris still has connects all over Washington, D.C, and he just dropped a bombshell about Barack Obama.
After taking the time to jet set around the world, Barack Obama is back in Washington, D.C., thanks to frantic calls from Valerie Jarrett who is overseeing Obama’s secret war rooms. That’s right, Barack has several of these war rooms throughout the Capitol Hill area, leased to the Obama Foundation, and one, in particular, has erupted into around the clock activity with some very high profile names spotted going in and out.
The war room located just two miles from the White House is the office in question, with Obama’s former Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius spotted there from early morning to late at night. “Operating just two miles away from the White House, the war room holds two conference calls daily to hash out media talking points, with a particular focus on health care,” related Morris as reported byThe Gateway Pundit.
Morris added, “Calls are held 8:30 am est and 9:45 am est. Kathleen Sebelius, former Health and Human Services head, and Andrew Slavitt, former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, are both active in the secret group.”
You can bet these clowns had a lot to do with the GOP’s failure to repeal Obamacare. There’s no doubt John McCain was contacted by them, especially when you learn what McCain was heard saying right after he screwed Americans by voting “no” on the skinny repeal. The Arizona Senator, who led Vice President Pence to believe he was voting “yes,” was hanging out with key Democrats, whooping it up later on. McCain was heard saying, “Let’s see Donald make America great again now.”
Multiple Hill staffers confirm last night McCain was heard laughing w Dems and remarked, “Lets see Donald make america great again now”
Knowing now that Obama’s secret war room was occupied with those who pushed Obamacare in the first place, it’s not a stretch to think they were obviously there working against President Trump’s agenda to pass the repeal and found the man they needed in John McCain.
Many people have been reluctant to call McCain out because he’s a veteran, a former prisoner of war, and he has brain cancer. However, none of those things have anything to do with what he did to Americans when he voted “no.” Being a veteran and a former prisoner of war doesn’t give you a pass to do wrong. Neither does a cancer diagnosis.
McCain gave the momentum back to the Obama camp, but it’s not over yet. Don’t ever count President Donald Trump out. That’s why Valerie Jarrett told Obama to come back if he wanted to save his legacy. How will it look if his shining achievement, that bears his name, is “repealed”?
What they promised McCain, we don’t know. Maybe McCain just wanted to get back at Trump, who he has been trash talking since the minute he took office. Whatever the case, let’s keep our eyes on Obama’s secret war room to see who is coming and going. It will be a big clue to what deviant plans they are conjuring up in their attempts to stop Trump and the agenda Americans are counting on.

Former President Barack Obama’s sexuality has been hotly debated over the years. From tales of gay lovers back in Chicago to his affinity for homosexual bathhouses, there’s been no shortage of ammunition for those who believe that he’s batting for the other team. Now, we have been presented with perhaps the best evidence yet that Obama may have indeed been the first gay POTUS after one famous gay man just made a shocking admission.
The Obamas were photographed leaving the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., on Sunday amid President Donald Trump’s claims that the former administration tapped his phones during the 2016 presidential election. Looking relaxed and smiling for the cameras, Mr. Obama was pictured in a leather Canali jacket that retails for $1,800 which he paired with jeans and matching shoes.
While the mainstream media collectively fawned over this weekend’s public Obama sighting, a prominent gay conservative pointed out something of note in the pictures of the former president from his Sunday outing. In a snarky Monday Facebook post, right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos insinuated that Obama is gay, judging by the way he dresses now that he’s no longer the president.
Other Facebook users seemed to believe Yiannopoulos was onto something. “He’s been married to Michael for how long. No one has really seen his real birth certificate because he paid millions to have his records sealed. Everything about this guy is a fraud. Joke will be on his ignorant supporters when his true identity comes out,” commented one person.
“Michelle was Michael Robinson when they met so…I’m not shocked by this,” wrote someone else, referencing the conspiracy theory that the former First Lady was actually a man in disguise.
“Look I have always thought he was gay!!! And that his marriage was of convenience. They have still never found the person/persons responsible for the deaths of the men that say they dated Obama back during his Reverend Wright Church days in the Down Low Club,” commented yet another Facebook user who also seems to believe that Obama is gay and that he went so far as to have his past lovers killed to cover it up.
Milo Yiannopoulos, perhaps the most famous gay conservative of the moment, would seemingly know what he’s talking about when it comes to the topic of homosexuality. Can you prove that someone is gay just by the way they dress, though? Not unequivocally.
However, this is not the only evidence which has surfaced over the years that would suggest Barack Obama prefers men. It certainly would explain his push to legalize gay marriage and his incessant promotion of the LGBT agenda.
