So, What Was Obama's Secret Sports Conference Speech All About?

Post by Riddick » 02-26-2018 09:51 PM

Monica Showalter at American Thinker opines:
  • The group is dedicated to affirmative action for women in sports and was obviously pleased at what he said (having paid good money to be there to hear it). Being lefties, they worship the man, after all.

    But seriously, a sports conference? Obama? Who can barely ride a bicycle, let alone play sports? He's not exactly the guy who'd know all that much about the topic enough to keep a secret on, except for the fact that major-league sports is getting increasingly politicized by the left, and Obama is the left.

    That raises questions about the real secret here: why they wanted such an unimportant conference to keep Obama's remarks secret. Was it Obama's doing? Or the conference that paid him for the speech? Could be either, actually.

    If it was the conference that wanted Obama's speech kept secret, why the pinned tweet at the top of its Twitter feed advertising the event? Why did the company promote the conference so hard? Why did they let reporters in...to not cover it?

    Perhaps they intend to market the Obama speech, but they would be lousy marketers if they didn't know that the time to market it is right at the time of the event, with the reporters present and the audience eager to lap it up.

    The conference seems a little at cross purposes with itself with this Obama secrecy policy. Then there is the possibility that Obama wanted the speech kept secret. Here, we are going places.

    Was the speech so left-wing in content that it would offend the mainstream and cause controversy? For the Colin Kaepernick crowd inside, obviously not. Outside, among the Reagan Democrats and independents, Obama's likely leftist content could well cause controversy that could stir the pot during an election year where Democrats are hungry to retake power.

    This is more like it. And it underlines once again just how far left the Democrat agenda really is. It's so far left that they don't even want to publicize it. Note that among the Democrats who have claimed seats from Republicans in special elections, they all ran on sedate, moderate platforms (think Doug Jones, who beat Roy Moore), not rabid left-wing screeching and Trump-bashing, which is the normal stance of most Democrats ensconced in power.

    Another reason Obama may have wanted the speech kept secret might have been to keep himself out of the news, the better to make the times he is in the news more important. He's well schooled in the spin and narrative of Ben Rhodes, so there's that idea, too.

    Lastly, maybe Obama wanted it to be kept secret because he knew that keeping it secret would draw attention. Being the former narcissist-in-chief, there's always that.

    I'm going to go with the first theory: that the Obama speech was so left-wing that Obama didn't want it to see the light of day. Socialist always operate in secrecy. This would fit the pattern.

Got to Remember Obama, already gave Hitlery a "Pardon" for her treasonous and seditious deeds. One thing being collusion with the Russians among a bunch of other stuff, none of it done without Obamies help and blessing.




Obama Admin Official Who Helped Anti-Trump Dossier Author Was Exec at Lobbying Firm for Russians Who Bought Uranium One

NEW YORK — Jonathan M. Winer, the Obama State Department official who acknowledged regularly interfacing with the author of the controversial, largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier, served as senior vice president of a firm that did lobbying work for Tenex, the U.S. subsidiary of Rosatom, the Russian state corporation headquartered in Moscow.
In 2010, Rosatom infamously purchased a controlling stake in Uranium One, the Canadian uranium mining company with operations in the U.S. The purchase was approved by the Obama administration in a decision that is currently being probed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

In a statement to Breitbart News, APCO Worldwide, where Winer served as senior vice president from 2008 to 2013, denied that the firm’s work for Rosatom’s subsidiary Tenex was related to the purchase of Uranium One or to the acquisition of uranium in general. Instead, APCO said its work for Tenex, which took place in 2010 and 2011, focused on sales of fuel to the U.S. energy market. APCO also denied that Winer did any work related to Tenex.

Here's another Tidbit for ya.........Harry Reid was busy with selling the Chinese our BLM land, after all Hitlery was selling our American Assets to the Russians, and pocketing the money. So Harry wanted to do the same thing with the Chinese!

I have little doubt that Harry Reid was involved in the Bundy BLM mess, they where used and abused as a warning shot for clearing the way for Harry's big Chinese Deal!

U.S. Senator Reid, son combine for China firm's desert plant

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Harry Reid recognized nine years ago that connections between his official duties and the lobbying activities of his relatives could lead to ethical questions.

In 2003, the Nevada Democrat publicly banned relatives from lobbying him or his staff after newspaper reports showed that Nevada industries and institutions routinely turned to Reid’s sons or son-in-law for representation.

Now, questions surrounding family ties are flaring again in Nevada around the Senate majority leader. He and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert.

Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada. His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.

Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the non-partisan advocacy group Public Citizen, said the senator is dealing with “an iffy ethical landscape” because of the family connections and should recuse himself from the project. “Is this just happening because ... it benefits the Reid family, or did Harry Reid actually believe in this?” Holman said.

Riddick, Legend has it about Wrigley Field's out field wall that there's lots of baseball's hidden inside it's ivy. But there'll be none found searching the pic on the right!

That greenery was reported to be the ivy at Wrigley Field and not poison ivy as some have suggested.
So maybe the ivy isn't poison, but what about the guy planted in the midst? He's not in office, but still in the national AND world picture, spreading his toxic waste.

Of course Gardener The Donald has what it takes to counter any noxious undesirable scenery... Red, White & Blue Trumps Green KWIM!

Riddick, where's the Like box?

Someone, somehow FOUND and re-Tweeted Clint Eastwood's two year old Tweet on Sunday. He was claiming #44's 8 year term's leadership would eventually be exposed as the most corrupt in US history! :oops:

I should have saved it for this thread since that claim was sadly true. He was a green talking cc damage control pres. But some of his monthly income came from renting out space inside crude oil, gas, diesel and CNG pipelines! :shock: I

The couple should ask for 2 new paintings or at least get their money back if the artists refuse their request.

You got that RIGHT! Mr Levin. And he's still doing it!


Mark Levin: “Obama Administration Did More to Interfere with Our Election Than the Russians” (VIDEO)
March 19, 2018 by Jim Hoft 42 Comments

Mark Levin: Here’s the big story, “The Obama administration did more to interfere with our election than the loathsome Vladimir Putin. Whether it’s unmasking, whether it’s Susan Rice refusing to allow the cyberspace folks to investigate. The Obama administration did more to interfere with our election than the Russians. That’s the story.

You are a little mixed up...dear.

The New York Times is keeping a record of Trump's facts, aka lies. There were over 2000 as of Nov 11, 2017. One doesn't even need an expert to identify the 'facts' Trump pulls out of the air. The minute he opens his big fat yap the lies come flying out.

All politicians lie Doka, but this jerk thinks everybody else in the world is stupid enough to believe his daily drivel. Come to think of it, there are are millions of people that actually suck up his lies, so he's probably right.

Obama Enacts Another Strict Media Ban Before New Zealand Trip


Former President Barack Obama will forbid all members of the press and media from reporting on his event in New Zealand this week.

The ban will also include interviews and those allowed access to the event will be forbidden from posting about it on social media.

For his time, Obama is reportedly charging $400,000.

Obama plans on meeting with the prime minister of New Zealand during the trip. The press won’t be allowed to ask questions. There will be a “moderated conversation” with the US-NZ Council, although the media is prohibited from covering it.

Your hatred of rich people......is that "In General", or it is OK for Liberal government Officials ,to become rich ?

I would offer you encouragement in this life, by wishing you Peace and Prosperity, but, I don't doubt that you would be offended. We know "Peace" is not much of a goal. And wow! If you became wealthy, you probably would just have to hate your self, for your good fortune!

In the mean time, I'm sure you will keep us informed on your march to "Win Equality, Through Poverty" program is working out?
