Barack Obama Blames Sarah Palin for GOP’s Embrace of ‘Xenophobia, Anti Intellectualism, Paranoid Conspiracy Theories’

Obama suddenly loves McCain.

Published

on

Former president Barack Hussein Obama has written in his memoirs that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was responsible for creating a place for “xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, [and] an antipathy toward Black and brown folks” within the mainstream GOP.

Obama also claims that deceased former Senator John McCain “abhorred” the direction that the GOP went toward after he picked Palin as his vice presidential pick.

“Through Palin, it seemed as if the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican Party – xenophobia, anti intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward Black and brown folks – were finding their way to center stage,” Obama writes in his memoir, “A Promised Land,” which has yet to be released.

“I’d like to think that given the chance to do it over again, [McCain] might have chosen differently,” he added. “I believe he really did put his country first.”

There is probably a lot of truth to Obama’s sentiments on this particular issue. As Big League Politics reported, McCain apparently made sure that Palin would not be invited to his funeral before his death – in a final vindictive display of pettiness from the man renowned for being bitter and temperamental to anyone without a press badge:

The running mate of late Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) failed bid for president in 2008 was not invited to his funeral, while an NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals gave a keynote speech.

“Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. describes his ‘unlikely’ friendship with Sen. John McCain. ‘I’m black, he was white. He ran for president, I run out of bounds,’” said CNN in a Tweet…

“How does this unlikely pair become friends?” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve asked myself the same question. But you know what the answer is. That’s just who [McCain] is. Over the several years I had the privilege of spending time with Sen. McCain, sometimes is was just a visit to our practices, other times it was him texting and saying ‘you need to pick it up this Sunday.”

“I’m thankful that through these moments, the opportunity that we had to share our lives, and more importantly, our stories,” he continued. “While from very different worlds, we developed a meaningful friendship, and this highlights the very rare and very special qualities of Sen. McCain that I came to admire. He didn’t judge people by the color of their skin, their gender, their backgrounds, their political affiliations, or their bank accounts. He evaluated them on the merits of their character and contents of their hearts.”

By all accounts, Fitzgerald’s speech was well-delivered and eloquent.

In stark contrast, McCain apparently was not pleased with the merits of former running mate Sarah Palin’s character, so much so that she was not even invited to his funeral.

Obama also whined in his memoirs that his successor, President Donald Trump, drew attention to his potential origin of birth. With Obama being protected by the mainstream media and political establishment, he was obviously unprepared for Trump’s skepticism of his carefully crafted public persona.

“In that sense, there wasn’t much difference between Trump and [former Speaker John] Boehner [R-Ohio] or [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell [R-Ky.],” Obama wrote. “They, too, understood that it didn’t matter whether what they said was true. In fact, the only difference between Trump’s style of politics and theirs was Trump’s lack of inhibition.”

“One of the reasons I’d chosen Joe to act as an intermediary – in addition to his Senate experience and legislative acumen – was my awareness that in McConnell’s mind, negotiations with the vice president didn’t inflame the Republican base in quite the same way that any appearance of cooperation with (Black, Muslim socialist) Obama was bound to do,” he added.

Obama’s memoirs will be released to the public on Nov. 17.

Laura Loomer Exposes Republican ‘Sabotage’ of Pro-Trump Congressional Candidates in Florida

Loomer is blowing the whistle.

Published

Banished journalist Laura Loomer is not retreating away from the limelight following her congressional race. She is continuing to use her voice to call out political corruption.

Loomer is blowing the whistle about the GOP officials in Florida who worked to “sabotage” her 21st District congressional campaign and make it impossible to overcome the odds and defeat Democrat Rep. Lois Frankel.

“Did you know the Republican Party plotted to sabotage my campaign more than the Democrat Party ever did?” Loomer wrote in a Parler post.

“If the Republican Party leadership went out of their way to sabotage me as a Trump endorsed Republican congressional nominee, imagine what they are doing to Trump right now,” she added.

In broad daylight, there have been betrayals of President Trump and the whistleblowers who observed grotesque fraud on election day. The worst betrayals have arguably come from Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who both certified the dubious vote in their state and have steadfastly refused investigations despite an overwhelming amount of improprieties.

“The GOP wants Biden to win but they want to collect as many Trump fundraising dollars from his grassroots supporters while pretending to care about the sanctity of our elections,” Loomer said.

“Trust me, I had first hand experience dealing with these liars,” she added.

Big League Politics reported on Loomer’s early momentum running her race when she was dominating in fundraising:

When banished journalist Laura Loomer announced she was running for Congress as a Republican in Florida’s 21st U.S. House district, her campaign was immediately laughed off by fake news commentators and establishment GOP hacks.

After her the announcement of her initial fundraising numbers, they are laughing no longer. Loomer is raking in money that makes her a legitimate Congressional contender in next year’s election.

Her campaign made the announcement on Tuesday that she had raised over $154,000 in only 60 days of fundraising. She received third quarter donations from 2,314 individuals throughout the country, demonstrating her broad and diverse donor base, with the average donation being $66.

The press release issued by Loomer’s campaign noted that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has only raised $59,000 in her first two quarters while serving as a Congresswoman. Loomer’s potential opponent in next year’s general election, Democratic incumbent Lois Frankel, raised $107,000 despite being a political veteran.

The success of Loomer’s campaign is showing that there is massive grassroots support behind the journalist, and she is being cancelled by social media because of her effectiveness.

“I’m humbled at the outpouring of support for my campaign,” Loomer said. “Despite the radical left, big tech tyrants and the fake-news media doing everything they can to hinder my campaign, this early showing puts career politician Lois Frankel and the do-nothing Democrats in congress on notice that no seat is safe and that I’m running to win. I look forward to continuing to travel the district and learning the concerns of the voters.”

“Laura is proving that she is a serious candidate and committed to flipping this seat and building the resources necessary to expose just how out of touch with the district Lois Frankel has become. I believe this will be one of the most watched congressional races for 2020 and will be a bellwether for regaining the House,” said Karen Giorno, who served as the Trump presidential campaign’s 2016 Florida state director and now works as chief strategist for the Loomer campaign.

Unfortunately for Florida’s 21st U.S. Congressional district, the GOP did all they could to stop Loomer’s momentum so Democrats could retain the seat. This is why so many conservative Republicans are considering a boycott of the Georgia senate runoff races right now.
