Feigned Outrage

Some women today woke up this morning from a nice 8 hour nap on a comfy bed in a safe, secured home, ate a hearty fresh breakfast, put on nice clean clothes, got in their fancy cars, and then drove to a “march” to protest the “oppression” of women in the America.
Meanwhile, somewhere a woman is getting beaten by her husband or father for showing a half a inch or so too much of their skin............and they remain silent.

Perhaps if you were protesting REAL violence against women instead of a losing candidate for president, an enabler of a proven womanizer and abuser of women and who wanted to increase significantly the number of immigrant males from countries where rape is legal and women are enslaved, then more of America would take you seriously. 
But hey ladies, enjoy you weekend.....

Post Inaugural: MSNBC Panel Fawns Over Michelle Obama's.....Buttocks


MFNS-Washington DC.- In the final minutes of the MSNBC coverage of Donald Trump being sworn in as 45th President, in order to steer the subject away from Trump, Chris Matthews invited several of the network’s past and present commentators who covered the Obamas over the last 8 years to pay tribute to former First Lady Michelle Obama.

It was classic MSNBC lunacy.....

CHRIS MATTHEWS:  A couple of days ago the remarkable Michelle Obama celebrated her 53th birthday. I thought we would end tonight’s show by taking a few moments to reflect upon a sensational African American first lady. Ed Schultz, my good union friend, your thoughts on our gracious former first lady.

ED SCHULTZ: I know that she’s a beautiful lady, Chris. I can tell you that.

MATTHEWS: So you wouldn’t kick her out of bed for …

SCHULTZ: For eating crackers? Heck no. She can eat all the crackers she wants. Hell, she can eat a greasy double cheeseburger with a side order of cheesy fries and wipe her hands on the sheets.

AL SHARPTON: (smiling) What would a good lookin’ Black African American woman of color be doing in bed with a fat white boy like you, Ed?

SCHULTZ: (laughing) Hey, even fat white boys have fantasies.

SHARPTON: Are you frantasizing about Michelle Obama or the double cheeseburger?

MATTHEWS: What about you, Rachel. You’re a lesbian, would you kick the first lady out of bed?

Abraham Lincoln Speaks To Obama


When I first read the original post by my friend Curmudgeon, it conjured up a vision in my mind of a weary, failed leader looking down, his shoulders slumped, bag of office mementos under his arm, reading a handwritten parchment letter after finding it pinned to the Oval Office door as he prepares to leave for the last time.

Political Clown Parade

"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....."

One Final Poke in the Eye of the Taxpayers: State Dept. sends $500 million to United Nations Climate Fund


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.”
____________________ 

Any moneys given to The United Nation is just enhancement of a Global Socialist slush fund.  And until large developed nation who are the biggest polluters of the world, China and India, get there act together, no American tax money should be given to any United Nations Idea. I still want to know where the 8 Billion dollars that came up missing during Hillary's tenure as Sec. of State went. 

The Opposite of Obama

President George H.W. Bush, aka Bush the Elder, wrote a letter to President-Elect Trump recently. Keeping with typical Bush family rules of dignity, President Bush’s letter was filled with patriotism and integrity.

The letter read: 
“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.

George H.W. Bush was honorable, but not a great president in most American's eyes. But he was a great foreign policy president, behind only President Reagan to most of all republicans alive today. By comparison, Obama’s history on national security is second to everyone’s. Bin Laden was killed on his watch. That’s his only national security victory. On the opposite side of the ledger, he traded the Taliban 5 for Bo Bergdahl. He pulled U.S. troops out of Iraq, which led directly to the formation of ISIS. President Obama’s spineless policies towards Syria led to the killing of hundreds of thousands of Syrians and increased migration hoards into Europe. That led directly to the importation of ISIS terrorists into western Europe and the United States.

But I digress.

After Trump takes oath, college group to host ‘Self-Care Night’
with Legos, juice boxes ‘and more!’

A Georgetown University LGBT student group is hosting a “Self-Care Night” featuring “Legos, juice boxes, and more!” on the Monday following the inauguration of Republican President-elect Donald Trump — recognizing what students have been through “after a long week.”
GUPride — the Washington, D.C., school’s “LGBTQ Student organization” that “provides programming, resources, and support for the Georgetown University LGBTQ and Allied community” — reportedly sent a Welcome Back email, which was obtained by Campus Reform, that further describes the event in a section titled “Post-inauguration self-care.”
Apparently stuffed animals and coloring books are also on the agenda.

The Major Media Gets Punked...Again!

All those gatekeepers. All those editors. All those journalism awards on the wall. And still this little snot-nosed brat using a fake name and a Facebook page punked the Media into believing someone was actually paying people outragous amounts of money to protest the inauguration.  Tucker Carlson outed him -- and got a gigantic laugh out of it.

Well, It's One Way to Keep Their Mouth Shut

Barky today all but guaranteed there will be no Tell-All books anytime soon from some important people who surrounded him for 8 years. Valerie Jarrett, who was the Puppet-Master and who's name is connected to most every Obama scandal of the past years, and Susan Rice, chief propagandist, mouth piece and defender at all cost of obama's twisted policies were given last minute appointments to cushy jobs. Both women, who know all the secrets and where the bodies are buried, were appointed to the board of one of America's  most prestigious, but increasingly left wing cultural foundations. 
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.  

Could Biden Prove to be a Problem Inauguration Day

"I am deeply touched by the sudden progressive concern for the security of the United States."

DiploMad 2.0
"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......"

Bad Times For The Circus Business......

Local Lefty Business Man Extends Welcome To Refugees

Blinkie Carsdale - Owner Operator of Mystical Coffee Bar and Bong Emporium 


My Independent Coffee Shop Welcomes All Refugees That Can Afford a Six Dollar Latte

Op-ed by Blinkie Carsdale

The Mystical Coffee Bar is all about coffee and inclusion. That is why our new policy is that all refugees are always welcome in our café so long as they can afford a six dollar small latte (cash only).

Owning a small independent coffee shop is about more than just making money. It's about being a part of a community. A community that we would love to welcome you into, just as soon as you decide what drink you would like. I take my role as a community leader very seriously. I'm not just some uncaring businessman ripping people off. I am fueling the members of my neighborhood as they start their day so they can go out and make a difference in the world.

This would probably be a good time to mention each refugee needs to buy his or her own drink if they wish to stay in the café.

Now I know that our latté’s aren't cheap, especially on a refugee salary, but that's because we pay our workers a fair wage and only use cruelty-free beans in our coffee. We charge more because we are fighting back against a capitalistic system that marginalizes common people to enrich the powerful. Moments like these are why I started my own business. I truly look forward to you coming to the register with your six dollars (cash only) so I can show you how much The Mystical Coffee Bar supports the downtrodden of our society.  

But I do have to ask that you not beg our customers for money. It makes them feel uncomfortable.

Barky Surprises His Best Bud With The Highest Honor

The outgoing President has honored his bestest friend Joe Biden with the highest honor in the land. And we here at DMF whole heartedly agree, if not for the same reasons as Barky.


Through Obama's eight long years of lies, deceit and narcissism, Joe Biden has supplied America with the best in comic relief. He was a boon of material for bloggers and graphic artist as no other outside the White House.  You earned it Joe, for just being yourself and giving us so many opportunities. And I'm sure if there was a Blogger Community Award for best comedic inspiration, you'd win the day!

We gonna miss ya Handsome Joe!

Here's just an small sample of what you gave us here at DMF......

A Goodbye Note from Kim Jong Un

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,
Orack Obama

4Chan’ Pees On The Internet Again, Media Says It’s Raining


Buzzfeed, CNN and to some extent our very own government GOT PUNKED! Totally punked as they all jumped on the dossier on Trump (the one with the pee hookers) they believed came from an MI6 agent… when in fact, it came from the internet group 4Chan.

According to 4Chan some documents were created by a 4Chan user and sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip. Posing as friendly foreign intelligence, they emailed documents to #NeverTrump Wilson.  4chan backs up its story that it was a hoax created by one of its users with a link to a post from November 1st. 


Some totally random 4chan user invented fake intelligence with a crazy story about Donald Trump paying for pee hookers and gave it to GOP strategist Rick Wilson, who then gave it to the CIA, who then gave it to the press so they could embarrass Trump with it right before his inauguration.  

You see, the thing a lot of people don't understand about 4chan is that they're not “sources of intelligence.” They're internet trolls, and the purest definition thereof.  They want chaos, and they want reactions.  They're the somewhat grown-up version of the boy sitting behind you putting gum in your hair and getting excited over you getting upset. They want people to think that they can create elaborate and believable hoaxes,  but sometime they've been found out within hours. 

In the past they've convinced the world that Twitter feminists were trying to #EndFathersDay because they just really hate men? Or the time they convinced radical feminists to #PissForEquality and Pee on Thyself  campaign to show support.  The number one rule of 4chan is to never, ever take 4chan seriously. 

Many of them, in fact, see the entire election of Donald Trump as a successful troll on our country. By and large, they are mostly bored idiots with so little going on in their lives that their only joy and amusement comes from the jolt of power they get from a successful troll. They do it, as they say, “for the lulz.”

Pompus Pretenders Call for Massive Strike to Punish Their Fictional Version of President


Dozens of artists, entertainers, and activists including the usual suspects like Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing, Ed Asner and Michael Shannon have attached their names to an effort calling for a month-long protest to stop President-elect Donald Trump. “No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!” reads a full-page ad placed in the New York Times last week by the group Refuse Racism. "Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger," the ad says. 
"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." ?????
In case anyone has any debt what so every that these pompous self-absorbed celebrities who make a living pretending to be someone else, feigning class they don't possess, travel with armed personal bodyguards and live in gated mansions far away from real life have any idea what America is all about, this should put those doubts to rest. And they should remember, strikes and boycotts can cut both ways.......

What's the Most Obvious Thing To Do By Our Most Vacationed President and First Lady After Relinquishing Office........Take Another Vacation Of Course


One Last Ride Out of Town Aboard Air Force One

It's literally one of the biggest perks of being President of the United States: Air Force One. The White House announced Barky's trip to Chicago for his farewell speech, and the subsequent return to Washington will be his final flights on AF1 as POTUS. But he gets one more complimentary ride after January 20th, as press secretary Josh Earnest told the White House press corps Monday afternoon:
“It is obviously tradition for the former president to take one last flight aboard the Presidential aircraft at the conclusion of the Inauguration.”
George W. Bush departing Washington on Marine One, on his way to AF One
at Andrews AFB for the flight home to Crawford Tex. after Obama was
sworn-in as President: Inauguration Day, January 2009
Obama, too, will get a lift on Marine One to Air Force One on that final day of his presidency. But unlike the Bush family, who were transported to their ranch in Texas, the Obamas who took numerous lavish vacations every year and just returned from two weeks in Hawaii, are headed straight for another vacation, using our freakin' plane. 

Yeah, been a couple of tuff weeks with all that goodbye partying and stuff. 
“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.”

Might want to get used to it Barky. Come January 21st you and Mooch aren't royalty anymore and vacationing on America's dime. Just regular old folks like the rest of us.

TRUMPOPHOBIA: SNOWFLAKE SCARED THAT HIS PLUMBER WAS A NAZI

 
 
If the headline sounds insane, that’s because it is. Modern day Progressives have always been crazy, but the election of Donald Trump has exposed their madness in an epic way. An editor for Think Progress is so traumatized by the President-elect that he’s having paranoid delusions that his plumber is a Nazi capable of extreme anti-Semitic violence. This is going to be a rough 4 and maybe 8 years for the left. 

DownTrend
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."
"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." 
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.

US Intelligence Offers Proof The Russians Hacked Our Election Minus The Proof


For weeks Obama and the democrats have been crying that Russia hacked our presidential election to help Donald Trump win. They have cited a classified US Intelligence report as proof that Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered his spies to influence the election. Well, that report was sort of declassified today and it is underwhelming to say the least. It has everything except actually proof of anything.

According to The Hill, Vlad Putin ordered a widespread influence campaign intended to help elect Donald Trump, the Intelligence Community (IC) said in a declassified report released Friday afternoon.
"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.

A Gift of Appreciation From America.......

Lizzy Warren Introduces Bill to Try and Screw Trump's Wealthy Cabinet Picks Right In The...........


So, this is how it's going to be for the next four years, huh Senator Liz? Time spent on senseless legislation, time taken away from the business of the country like stopping people from invading our borders, ridding the streets of criminals, improving our schools and creating jobs. All so you guys can play games and get you some face time on the Sunday talk Shows?

It's bad enough the dems look like petulant children led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer talkin’ all big about how Senate Democrats are going to screw Donald Trump in his *** over his Supreme Court nominee. But now Lizzy and some of her Senate pals including Dianne Feinstein, have introduced some silly new legislation to try and screw over all of Trump’s rich cabinet nominees.
"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:
Remember that thing about how Trump’s cabinet picks have combined net worth greater than a half a dozen African nations put together? (insert anti-capitalist SJW yells) Uh huh, they are rich. And when cabinet members are picked, they tend to have to sell whatever assets they have that could cause conflicts of interest. People who have ONE BILLION ASSETS have a lot of stuff to sell, and they usually stick the proceeds in Treasury Bonds or mutual funds or whatever are considered OK for them to have, by ethical standards.

As the Washington Post helpfully explains, there is a law “designed to help ease the sting of being forced to suddenly sell investments,” that lets all these new appointed officials defer having to pay taxes on the capital gains they suddenly have, from selling all their sexy stocks in Walmart or Boeing etc.  They still owe the taxes down the road, let’s say, if they sell the Treasury Bonds they stuck their capital gains moneys in, but if they just keep their many moneys where they are, then it's TAX FREE!  The law seems to make sense, even for normal rich people who weren't planning to sell all their investments right then and there. 

But OH NOES! These wealthy congress critters like Senator Lizzy , who I might remind you wrote most and agreed to the ethics rules as well as the tax laws that keep their rich donors rich as to suck coin from them every election cycle, decide now The Donald's cabinet picks are way too rich! And they mustn't have the legal tax breaks anyone else would receive.

Well I guess it's good for laugh on the right side of the isle, the bill will never see the light. But it does sends a limp wristed message that they might be in the minority, but they’re going to do everything in their power to be as much of a pain in the ass to the Trump administration as they possibly can.

The more things change the more they remain the same. And just as 'The Weasel of the Senate', Harry Reid failed to learn when Barky Obama handed the congress over to the Republicans, the 115th addition of congressional democrats will have to learn the hard way: DON’T START NO SHIT WON’T BE NO SHIT.

Hood Rats and Wealthy Elites Alike Will Gather for One Last "Let's Black It All Up in Here" House Party

Our Fair Lady: South-Side Chicago Hairdo and Leftover Upholstery Scrap Designer Gown  

There will be lots of A-lister hanging at the White House in the next few days, but they won't be there for the Trump Inauguration.  No, it's one last bash with the King and Queen, their rich contributors and low-life friends to feast and nasty up the hallowed halls of The Peoples House. The Obamas themselves confirmed during an interview with People Magazine a while back that they’d have one final adult bash at the White House before looting packing their bags. 
"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!

I also predict to be on the guest list are Barky's friends from Black Lives Matter, DeRay Mckesson and Brittany Packnet, regular visitors to the White House, most of the black reporters in the lapdog media, and numerous members of the Congressional Caucus of Black Folks. And really, what would a party be without the right Rev. Al Sharpton!

I guess we can't really fault them for one last hoorah. After all, because of the national embarrassment of Barky and Mooshell, it's gonna be a long time before we see the likes of them in the WH again. And after Jan 20th, most all in attendees will consider The Peoples House as enemy territory.

Let's just hope someone had the foresight to take an inventory before the Obamas moved in back in 2009.

Bill & Hillary Decide to Attend Trump Inauguration

Photographers Will Be Salivating Over This Photo Opportunity. 

You just know there are going to be some awkward and uncomfortable looks on someone's face on January 20th.  And every photographer within a quarter of a mile will have a lens trained on Hillary Clinton as the Oath of Office is administered to Donald Trump.

CNN has reported former President Bill Clinton and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton have decided to attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration. To me, it's good to finally see a democrat these days have a moment of lucidity and decide to act like an adult for a change. That, or Bill talked Hillary into attending hoping she strokes out or goes stark raving mad afterwards and he can finally be rid of the shrieking witch.

My fear was that something crazy would happen on the 20th, like Hillary taking a peaceful walk alone in the woods of Chappaqua during the inauguration ceremony and be mauled by a wild bunch of angry woodchucks or something and dominate the news cycle for the next two days. But now, my fears have been laid to rest. That is, if Hillary doesn't come unglued and stands on her chair, tearing at her clothes and yelling "the Russians rigged the Election!" Remember who we're dealing with here.  


Meanwhile, former President George W. Bush's office stated he and former first lady Laura Bush will also attend "and  are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power", the last according some of our friends on the left.   Previously, Jimmy Earl Carter was the only former commander in chief who had publicly said he would attend Trump's inauguration. With Jimmy's dictator pals Hugo and Fidel dead now, he really hasn't anything to do anyway.

Barky To Say Farewell - Unveil Mock-up of Library

"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.
