"There is a photograph of President Barack Obama with Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ bust of Abraham Lincoln visible in the background. Through the magic of Photoshop™ I reworked the photograph to bring Lincoln into full focus.
When he placed his hand upon Lincoln’s Bible on January 20, 2009 Barack Obama declared he was committed to celebrating American unity and the use of the historic Bible would provide a powerful connection to our “common past and common heritage.”
When Lincoln placed his hand upon this very same Bible 148 years earlier a Civil War threatened to destroy the country. On Friday, 156 years later, President-elect Donald Trump will place his hand upon Lincoln’s Bible as he takes the Oath of Office. He will assume the mantle of President of the United States at a time of great unrest at home and abroad.
Upon learning of Obama’s disgraceful commutation of Army Pfc. Manning, I wondered if the ghost of Lincoln ever spoke to him during his eight failed years as president....."
AOL- Days before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, the State Department has announced a $500 million donation to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund.
The Green Climate Fund helps the world develop clean energy technologies as it adjusts to climate change and works to reverse effects of global warming. The U.S. promised $3 billion to the fund in 2014, but political infighting stopped the money from being appropriated. The administration this week directed funds that were previously approved. Following a previous check for $500 million, the total contribution from the U.S. to the fund sits at $1 billion.
This payment, however, could reverse course under the incoming administration.
Potential secretary of state Rex Tillerson has said climate change isn’t a security threat to the U.S.. Although he did state America should maintain “a seat at the table” when it comes to climate change, Tillerson wouldn’t say whether he’d keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement, which China recently warned the U.S. against pulling out of at the Davos world economic forum.
In the days leading up to his 2016 election victory, Trump himself stated his plan to “cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations.”
“Dear Donald, Barbara and I are so sorry we can’t be there for your Inauguration on January 20th. My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it likely will put me six feet under. Same with Barbara. So I guess we’re stuck in Texas. But we will be with you and the country in spirit. I want you to know that I wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading our great country. If I can ever be of help, please let me know.”It’s apparent that Bush the Elder is the opposite of President Obama. Right until the last minute of his presidency, Bush the Elder’s decisions were about protecting the United States. President Obama’s final decisions have disgraced his already disgraceful foreign policy and national security legacy.

Washington Times - On his way out the door, President Obama appointed top aide Valerie Jarrett and national security adviser Susan E. Rice Tuesday to the prestigious board of trustees of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Ms. Jarrett has been the president's closest adviser since the start of his presidency, and Ms. Rice also has been a top adviser, serving previously as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
“I am proud that such experienced and committed individuals have agreed to serve the American people in these important roles,” Mr. Obama said. “I know they will serve the American people well.”Obama has planted his poison in another American institution, just as he did recently appointing a Champion of Porn in Public Libraries to Head Library of Congress. Keeping with the cultural direction of recent years, we can probable expect the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors to degenerate into a parade of public Trump-hating actors, musicians, authors and media people.
"Most of the same people now screaming "RUSSIA!" and accusing President-elect Trump of being the Siberian Candidate, historically have opposed a strong US military, opposed efforts to fight Soviet Communism, laughed at "a Red under every bed" as paranoia, derided the CIA as murderers and coup-plotters, wanted immediate US nuclear disarmament, made fun of Romney's concerns about Russia, defended Hillary's use of an insecure server, etc. Lots more, you can fill it in. They also have opposed strong US border defense, and an immigration policy to protect us from foreign jihadis, rapists, murderers, and urban criminal gangs.
Obama, the ultimate political expression of the progressive world view, gutted the US military, instructed our intel and enforcement agencies to focus on "climate change," ordered them to downplay the illegal alien and jihadi threats, tried to politicize them and shape them into extensions of the DNC (see DOJ, IRS and EPA, for example). He, in sum, turned them into purveyors of the usual progressive nonsense that has gotten us into our current socio-political-economic fix, and, by the way, led to the election of Donald Trump......"

Dear President Orack,
Soooo, people kick yu out of Big House, huh? Ha Ha!
I still Supreme Leader of Magnificent Korean Empire!
Would invite yu to come to Peoples Paradise and live in splendor, but yu monkey butt ugly wife would scare chilren. Ha Ha!
Rotts of Ruck Big Ears!
Kim Jong #Un!
Dear Korean Fat Kid,
I thank you for the offer to live in the Peoples Paradise of Korea, but you see, I've made out like a Korean Mountain Bandit the last eight years and I'm a very rich MoFo now.
And if I may be so bold to make a suggestion. I hear the new American President, Mr. Trump, reallllly doesn't like effeminate little Korean Fat Boys with funny hair cuts. Maybe you should drop him a line next week.
And Good Luck ever getting those bricks you call missiles to fly, Fatso,
"Millions of people in the US and around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear and disgust. Our anguish is right and just. Our anger must now become massive resistance – before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands."Other Hollywood celebrities who have also joined the campaign are calling for an all-out strike that would span the entire movie industry in the hopes that such a move would urge the President-elect to resign from his position as the newly elected President of the United States. A spokespeople for the Refuse Racism group told The New York Times:
"We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops,” “It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around."Asked to elaborate on why the group is targeting Hollywood out of all the industries in the country as their bargaining chip, the spokesperson argued that:
“Simply put, Hollywood is the base of the entire modern American culture. It is the foundation of the country, so to speak, the glue that’s holding it together. And think about what happens when you destroy the foundation of a house. It comes crashing down, right? Well, that’s exactly what’s going to happen to America unless Donald Trump realizes how real the danger of that actually is, and chooses to step down as President of his own free will. And while we’re on the subject, between you and me – nobody wants Hollywood to stop doing its thing, but this is a necessary move."
“Besides, it’s not like the billionaire-businessman-turned-president hasn’t ventured into movies in his day, right? So, he’ll understand firsthand what’s going to happen if Hollywood goes to strike. Without the work of Hollywood and the lifestyle promoted by it, there will literally be no more America to rule for Trump. So, in effect, it’s not us that are going to force Donald Trump to resign his office; it’s the people of America who are going to make him do it, because the God’s honest truth is – without Hollywood, there is no America. It’s like trying to run Nazi Germany without Hitler at the forefront – it just becomes pointless,”"Without Hollywood, there is no America." ?????
“It is obviously tradition for the former president to take one last flight aboard the Presidential aircraft at the conclusion of the Inauguration.”

sworn-in as President: Inauguration Day, January 2009
“That's certainly what I would anticipate, yes. The president and first lady will be leaving town shortly after the Inaugural Ceremony. But they will return, of course, to their rented house in Washington, D.C.”No official word where exactly the former first duo will be headed, but Obama told Oprah Winfrey during an interview last month that he was going to take Michelle on a trip to a less wintry locale. The People's Paradise of Cuba maybe?
“We're going someplace warm. See ya.”And he'll get to take Air Force One, a Boeing 747-200B series airplane, a massive, customized plane with more than 4,000 square feet of space and three levels. It can be refueled in mid-air, which means it can stay up as long as need be. He told Ellen DeGeneres when he went on her show last February that he "doesn't miss flying commercial, taking your shoes off and all that.”
Ned Resnikoff is a senior editor at liberal shitpile Think Progress. Recently he this on social media:
"I Wanted to share an experience from earlier today. This afternoon, I had plumber over to my apartment to fix a clogged drain. He was a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional. But he was also a middle-aged white man with a southern accent who seemed unperturbed by this week’s news."
"And while I had him in the apartment, I couldn’t stop thinking about whether he had voted for Trump, whether he knew my last name was Jewish, and how that knowledge might change the interaction we were having inside my own home. I have no real reason to believe he was a Trump supporter or an anti-Semite, but in my uncertainty I couldn’t shake the sense of potential danger. I was rattled for some time after he left.
Potential danger? Of what, a clean running drain?
"I’m very privileged insofar as this sense of danger is unfamiliar to me. And I know I feel it much less accurately than a lot of other people right now. I’m still a straight, white guy who can phenotypically pass for gentile."
Okay people, let's recap. A gainfully employed middle-aged white man with a southern accent was a nice person and did his job well, and the liberal now fears for his safety because of Donald Trump. This is both parts sad and hysterical."But today was a reminder that ambiguous social interactions now feel unsafe and unpredictable in a way that they never did before. And even if Trump is gone in four years, I don’t expect to ever reclaim that feeling of security. That’s just one more thing you voted for, if you voted for him."
"Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency."
"We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him."Discrediting Hillary Clinton? That’s kind of like putting effort into showing Barack Obama is a liar. And while democrats are squealing with delight over this report, it comes with a caveat:
"While the conclusions in the report are all reflected in the classified assessment, the declassified report does not and cannot include the full supporting information, including specific intelligence and sources and methods..."In other words, if there is any proof, you can’t see it and just have to take their word that it exists. And even if you believe this report that is completely missing the proof it claims to contain, what you are left with is the ridiculous idea that Putin risked friendly relations with the US and possibly war to show the American people that Hillary Clinton is an unlikable shithead. We already knew that.
"Senate Democrats … introduced legislation on Tuesday that would place a $1 million limit on the amount of capital gains Trump or his nominees could defer paying taxes on. Warren argued the move would block Trump’s Cabinet from getting “another special favor.”
“Not only is Donald Trump giving a gang of billionaires control of our government, he’s offering them a special tax break just for signing up,” she said.Sounds familiar don't it. So here's the deal:

"Typically the Obama administration keeps a tight lid on celebration details until the 11th hour. But the big names thought to be on the guest list have been slowly trickling out this week. Old standbys such as singer Usher and actor Samuel L. Jackson will most likely be there, according to another person with knowledge of the invitees. Also currently practicing their sweet moves are media titan Oprah Winfrey, who snagged an exit interview with the first lady last month on her fellow invitee and bestie Gayle King’s network CBS."Also in attendance will be the first lady's favorite female roll model for young people, Beyoncé, who sang at both of Obama’s inaugurations, and her husband, ghetto thug rapper Jay Z. We also read that Stevie Wonder, who has performed at the White House will be there. Yo Stevie, over here!
"Since George Washington, U.S. presidents have often delivered a final address to the American people as a way to share both their reflections on their time in office and their outlook on the future of our country. As his time in office comes to a close, President Obama will return to Chicago to deliver his Farewell Address on the evening of January 10, 2017."
Besides expertly glossing over his abject failure as a leader, on the occasion of the President's speech will be the unveiling of a mock up of his soon to be built massive Presidential Library in his home town.
"The same streets where a young community organizer once inspired his community to take action will serve as the home base for a foundation that will organize and inspire people of all backgrounds and beliefs to better their communities, their country and their world."
Middle Finger News™ was given a sneak peek of the proposed entrance to the hallowed halls of The Obama Presidential Library (pictured below) to be on display to the public after the speech.
Our own intrepid MFNS reporter Earl of Taint early in 2015 submitted his own design to the Presidential Library Conceptual Design Contest. We wait eagerly to see if Earl will be honored with his design acceptance. If so, Earl will personally be on-site to oversee the massive complex construction of Library, Amusement Park and Progressive Friendly "George Michael Memorial Public Restroom" facilities.
