Obama’s Miserable Economic Legacy

International Liberty

Let’s take a look at President Obama’s economic legacy.

The Washington Examineropines on President Obama’s remarkable claim that he saved the world economy.

President Obama…wants to be remembered for…[being]…the savior of the American and global economies. “There are things I’m proud of,” he said, citing Obamacare, then added, “Saving the world economy from a Great Depression, that was pretty good.”

Not so fast. Looking at the economy’s anemic numbers the editors are less than impressed.

Obama will end eight years in office without presiding over a thriving economy of the sort America enjoyed in the past. It also suggests that even the mediocre growth of recent years depended on high oil prices, which have collapsed by more than half. This is the bitter fruit of creationist economics, the erroneous belief that government activity can somehow conjure new wealth and value.

The Wall Street Journal is similarly dour about…

Media BiASSED!

At WH Correspondents Dinner, Larry Wilmore Smears Fox News as Racist, Hails Obama as ‘My N*gga’

CNN’s Brian Lowry reported Comedy Central "fake news" anchor Larry Wilmore drew "groans and grimaces" on Saturday night with a typical White House Correspondents Dinner routine that leaned heavily to the left. He suggested Fox News was racist: “Welcome to Negro Night here in Washington. Or as Fox News will report, ‘Two thugs disrupt elegant dinner in DC.’” Wilmore ended his set by thanking Obama for having been the country’s first black President: “I’m going to keep it 100: Yo, Barry. You did it, my n*gga!”

Juan Williams: Wilmore ‘Nerd Prom’ Act ‘Degrading’ to Black Community

Saturday night was the White House Correspondents Dinner a star studded event attended by the media elites. Come Sunday morning most of the media was praising President Obama’s performance during the dinner, while expressing how disappointing comedian Larry Wilmore’s act was. Fox News’ Juan Williams really took it to Wilmore on Fox News Sunday saying, “to black America it awful. It was degrading…”

Ted Cruz Calls Out Liberal Media for Trump Bias on ‘Meet the Press’

Sparks flew Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press when Senator Ted Cruz called out the liberal media for their pro-Donald Trump coverage and their biased executives. “The media created this Trump phenomenon and then they don’t hold him accountable,” said the Senator during a very long heated interview with the host Chuck Todd. An exchange where Todd was visible agitated by what the senator from Texas was saying about his profession.

Meyers Suggests Boehner’s Lucifer Comments Imply Cruz Is Worse Than Child Molester Hastert

NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers has a clearly documented record against conservatives, but the show from late Thursday into Friday sunk to a new low as he cracked a joke about John Boehner’s Lucifer comments toward Ted Cruz as an implication that he’s worse than the now-revealed child molester Dennis Hastert.

Media Mock ‘Wicked Stepmother’ Fiorina, Fawned Over ‘Grandmother’ Hillary

It’s a tale of two female candidates, one the media loves, and one the media hates. When Carly Fiorina started singing to Ted Cruz’s young daughter on the stage this week the media reacted harshly, calling her “creepy” with even comedian Stephen Colbert likening it to the “wicked stepmother” singing, (which I guess isn’t as bad as being called “Lucifer.”)

Nasty Bill Maher Speculates on ‘the Bones of Prostitutes Rush Limbaugh Killed on Vacation’

HBO host Bill Maher was his usual nasty self on Friday’s Real Time. Joking about Cuba and America’s relationship with the communist country, he sneered that the United States’s decades-old embargo “means endlessly patching up their old DeSotos and Edsels with whatever they can scrounge, old tractor parts, chicken wire, the bones of prostitutes Rush Limbaugh killed on vacation.”

Nasty Joy Behar Defends Reagan Alzheimer’s Movie With This Smear

Hours before the announcement that actor Will Ferrell would not star in a smear film portraying Ronald Reagan as a dementia-addled invalid, the women of The View discussed the potential movie. Liberal co-host Joy Behar insisted that the concept could be making a “larger point” and also repeated a smear about the 40th president. Speaking of Ferrell, she sneered, “He might be making a larger point about the fact that the man was in office with Alzheimer’s and that reflects our political system to a T.”

MSNBC Replaces Melissa Harris-Perry With Joy Reid

Only a year after cancelling The Reid Report in February 2015, on Friday, MSNBC announced that left-wing pundit Joy Reid would once again be getting her own show on the network, replacing Melissa Harris-Perry, who recently stormed off the cable channel following a racially-charged tirade against her employer. In a statement about the staff shake-up, MSNBC president Phil Griffin laughably proclaimed: “MSNBC viewers crave not only the facts, but also in-depth discussion and analysis from a range of perspectives. There is no one better equipped than Joy to lead this new project…

Grace upon grace

Grace upon grace
For reading & meditation: John 1:1-17
"And from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace." (v.16, RSV) Today we ask: What purpose does God have in leading us into situations which are uncertain and ambiguous? He does so in order that we might learn to depend on Him and not on ourselves. Just as in times of loneliness we learn to realise His presence, so in times of uncertainty we learn to realise His power. The major reason why our lives are unfruitful lies right here: we depend more on our own strength than we do on His. How can God teach us dependence unless He puts us into situations which are so uncertain that we are compelled either to choose the way of frustration or the way of faith? And if we draw back from entering such situations, we will miss a valuable spiritual education and our lives will become barren. A statement I came across some time ago sums up what I want to say concerning ambiguity and uncertainty. It is this: "God’s purposes are always God’s enablings." In other words, when God steers you into strange and uncertain situations, He will keep you very much in the dark concerning His purposes, but He will not leave you bereft of His grace. The purpose of God and the grace of God are two sides of the one coin. If you accept the purpose, you get the grace; if you refuse the purpose, you annul the grace. Anything God purposes for you, He gives you the grace to perform. John speaks in our text for today of "grace upon grace". One preacher I know translates that text like this: "Use the grace I give you and rest assured – there will always be more to follow."

Prayer:
O Father, how wonderful it would be if I could master this lesson today, and become a living illustration of "grace upon grace". May it be so, to the honour and glory of Your peerless and precious Name. Amen.

For further study:
2 Corinthians 12:1-10; Ephesians 2:6-7; Philippians 4:19
1. How did Paul view his "thorn in the flesh"?
2. What was his attitude?
