7 Animals that are Now Evolving – Most of the time we know that evolution is a slow process. It can take up to millions of years before these subtle changes will actually take place in every living thing become dramatic enough for us to see. However, some species are changing so quickly now that we can actually watch it happen.
After President Trump gave out “fake news” awards to organizations like CNN, New York Times, ABC News, Time Magazine, and the Washington Post in January 2018, one might think that the fake news has subsided – even a little bit. Unfortunately, this is not the case at all.
Let us examine some of these major screw-ups by supposedly the best news organizations that America has to offer.
In January 2017, right after President Trump had been sworn in, a Time Magazine journalist reported that the Martin Luther King, Jr bust had been removed from the Oval Office. OOOPS – The MLK bust had been moved to the other side of the Oval Office. President Trump returned the Winston Churchhill bust to the Oval Office after President Obama insulted our oldest ally by removing it in the first place. Notice there was no outrage when Obama did that …. Time Magazine posted FAKE NEWS!!!
CNN reported that Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump, Jr had sneak peek access to hacked Wikileaks documents. This was an out and out LIE. CNN posted FAKE NEWS and had to admit their error!!!
Washington Post reported that a President Trump rally in Pensacola Florida was empty. They posted images of empty seats on social media that were taken before the rally started. In reality, the rally was sold-out (as all Trump rallies are) and Washington Post LIED about the rally. Washington Post reported FAKE NEWS and had to admit their mistake!!!!!!
CNN falsely edited a video of President Trump overfeeding Choi fish during a visit Japan. Yet they neglected to show that President Trump fed the fish in the exact same manner as the Japanese Prime Minister. Seriously, can CNN be any more petty? CNN posted FAKE NEWS and GOT CAUGHT!!!
Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand. Yet there are dozens of pictures online showing that they did shake hands. Can we be more petty? Newsweek posted FAKE NEWS and got caught!!!!
Perhaps some of these efforts can help us get rid of Fake News once and for all.
Elon Musk’s new company ‘Pravda’ would rate journalists’ credibility
In said meltdown, he went after the press, suggesting he might create a system to rate the media and name the site Pravda—which was the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and is today run by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. It also means “truth.” Elon Musk’s new company ‘Pravda’ would rate journalists’ credibility | Big Think
Researchers call for large-scale scientific investigation into fake news
The indictment of 13 Russians in the operation of a “troll farm” that spread false information related to the 2016 U.S. presidential election has renewed the spotlight on the power of “fake news” to influence public opinion. Now, an Indiana University faculty member who studies the spread of misinformation online is joining prominent legal scholars, social scientists and researchers in a global “call to action” in the fight against it.

How artificial intelligence can detect – and create – fake news
Researchers already know that online fake news spreads much more quickly and more widely than real news. My research has similarly found that online posts with fake medical information get more views, comments and likes than those with accurate medical content. In an online world where viewers have limited attention and are saturated with content choices, it often appears as though fake information is more appealing or engaging to viewers.

Amazing how liberals today lament about the Trump White House.
And dearly how they they wish for Obama to be back.
Recently, a New York Time Reporter revealed that she keeps a small Obama doll in her purse to remind her that American once had a “progressive African-American president”.
Notice how she didn’t say she missed any of his accomplishments? Or how WELL he did his job?
No, she only missed him because he’s black. Is that what we really want as a President? Someone who fills a quota? Is this why Obama was elected?
Liberals Who Were Disappointed in Obama
Now let us look at some clips of those from the left who were very disappointed in Obama. Of course, all these videos were shot during Obama’s terms when there was no elections at stake.
Michael Moore – Famous film maker
“Diddy” the Rapper
Disappointed Voter During a Townhall
Tamir Rice’s Mom – An Obama Voter
Cornell West – an activist
The Young Turks – Popular YouTube Channel
Thomas Sewell – Political Philosopher
So how well did Obama take this advice?
Here’s what he accomplished during his last term: 1) Made that horrendous nuclear deal with Iran, and 2) tried to close GTMO. In other words, he accomplished NOTHING.
And since leaving the White House, he has spent a huge amount of time living on billionaire Richard Branson’s massive yacht. He once told a reporter before leaving the White House that he didn’t intend to earn money making speeches, but has since made several speeches for insane amounts of money – and continues to do so.
He received a book deal worth around $60 million and has apparently given very little thought to any of the concerns mentioned by those in the above videos.
It seems that what Obama cares most about is Obama.
Perhaps that is why he accomplished so little in the White House.
We have all witnessed the horrific tragedy that occurred in Parkland, Florida. And unfortunately within minutes of the event, we started seeing the political spins about gun control from both sides of the aisle.
Those emotions resulted in a massive March 14 nationwide walk-out in remembrance of the 17 victims. But that walk-out evolved into a political outcry for more gun control.
Yet there are no tears or outcries for suicide victims.
3 Times More Suicide Victims than Gun Homicides
Why do we scream out so loudly for more gun control and cry so deeply for the victims, while ignoring the huge number of victims of suicides?
In 2016, there were 3 times more suicides in America than gun homicides. In 2014, there were almost four times more suicides. The number of annual suicides grew over 30% from 2008 to 2016.
How many nationwide walk-outs have there been for the victims of suicide?
I’ll give you a hint – it’s a very low number
Listed below are the numbers of suicides that have occurred each year from 1999-2016 in the United States as compared to the numbers of gun homicides.
The Deception of Gun Violence Numbers
When you perform a Google search for gun violence or gun related deaths, you will find data that INCLUDES suicides. Thus, you wind up with numbers that are three or four times as high.
Countless gun control articles out there refer to these inflated numbers as they talk about gun shooting incidents to support their argument. They will use the terms “deaths by gun violence” or “gun related deaths” so they can legally include the inflated numbers that contain suicides.
But can we really consider a gun related suicide as a violent death?
Do we consider an act where someone hung themselves as a violent act? Don’t think so …
How about when someone cuts their wrists, is this considered a “knife related death”?
Sadly, suicides will continue to be ignored by the public UNTIL they can satisfy someone’s political agenda.

Hollywood goes to great measures to tell us how we should live, how we should think, and who we should voter for.
The irony is that if they know so much, then why can’t they figure what we Americans like?
Hollywood SUCKS at Picking the Year’s Best Picture
Over the last 20 years, only once has an Oscar Best Picture Winner actually been a box office winner. In fact, only once has their Best Picture Winner cracked the Top 100 on the all time Domestic List.
Let’s look at the List that these know-it-alls have picked over the last 20 years, compared to what the year’s box office winner was:

People in the days of Ancient Rome considered actors and those involved in theater as being the lowest forms of their society. Today we are seeing why the Romans felt that way.
If you think Obama is the reason for this growing economy, then you are not paying attention. This notion is preposterous.
Those of us who follow the political landscape have seen some very exciting things in the last few Presidential terms. We saw the terms of George Bush provide us with great job growth in the early part of his Presidency, only to be followed by the biggest economic crash since the Great Depression. When Bush left office, the American economy was losing 180,000 jobs every month on average and the financial markets were plummeting.
Obama Entered the White House with Lots of Promise
Barrack Obama’s Presidency was one about hope and change with promises to repair the nation’s crippling economy and bring jobs back. Congress helped by providing him with almost a trillion dollars for a “stimulus package” to pump into the economy and make it flourish again. This was often referred to as the “bail-out” package.
There was job growth during Obama’s terms, but Department of Labor data suggests that many of those jobs were either low paying jobs or only part time jobs. This further is indicated by the stagnant growth of hourly wages that are also reported each month. Although there was certainly a long stretch of decent job reports under Obama, there has been no growth in wages. Furthermore, the economy remained stagnant throughout his two terms with GDP’s barely above recession levels.
Today, under President Trump, we are seeing extraordinary economic growth. In just his first year in office, Trump’s booming economy has already surpassed Obama’s lifeless one.
Recently, we have seen Obama attempt to take credit for this new massive economic growth. Nothing could be more wrong or further from the truth. And deep down, Obama knows this, but with all things regarding Trump, the democrats refuse to give him any credit for any of his accomplishments.
4 Reasons Trump is Responsible for Today’s Economic Growth – And NOT OBAMA
1) The Start Date of the current Stock Market rally – During the early part of this year, the Dow Jones Index reached a record 26,000 points. From the time Trump since got elected, that index grew over 7500 points. And in one recent stretch, it grew 1000 points in the shortest amount of time in history.
Almost $7 trillion of new wealth has been created since Trump was elected. That’s the key phrase here “SINCE TRUMP WAS ELECTED”. Not “since Obama was in office”, not “because Obama did this or that”. It occurred “since Trump was elected” PERIOD. And to emphasize that fact further, the rally started the VERY NEXT DAY after Trump won the election.
The real question was WHY did the stock market rally after Trump was elected? It rallied because of the anticipation of corporate tax cuts that had been promised during Trump’s 2016 campaign. Also, there was a promise of infrastructure spending which the markets also liked, but it was the promise of tax cuts that mostly fueled the rally.
Did Obama ever promise a tax cut to corporations? Nope. Did Hillary Clinton promise a tax cut to businesses? Nope. She actually did the opposite. In a move of sheer stupidity, Hillary threatened to shut down the coal industry. Bye-bye union votes – and unions have been historic supporters of the democrats – Hillary broke that trend with her bad decision.
We can easily conclude that there is no way Obama is responsible for the current stock market rally. And that, my friends, is a big reason for the growing economy we are seeing.
2) Trump eliminated over 600 Obama Regulations – This is why it is absolutely absurd for Obama to take any credit – his own policies were preventing the growth in the first place. Obama had the power all along to improve the lives of Americans but wouldn’t pull the trigger. He seemed more preoccupied with being a globalization superstar instead. He seemed more preoccupied with climate change and making a big splash in Paris.
If Obama had been willing to cut away just a faction of the regulations that were his economy, his presidency could have been legendary.
Instead, Trump took full advantage of Obama’s mistake and achieved instant growth and economic success by doing this one simple thing. This is the MAIN REASON why Obama cannot take credit for the current economic growth in America. Because he prevented it from happening.
3) Just Look at Obama’s Economic Data – The media and people from the left are quick to praise Obama for all the great things he allegedly accomplished. They obviously have not looked very closely at his economic data. When you see his lack of accomplishments in the financial arena, you are reminded that he is merely a “community organizer” and didn’t really have the knowledge or skills to run a country.
Let us examine his economic accomplishments:
Only President to Never Have 3% or more GDP Growth in at least one year of office – This is especially bad for a President who served TWO TERMS! Just think of one term Presidents like Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush who managed to reach the 3% growth level for at least one of their four years. Obama had eight chances to accomplish this and didn’t – pretty pathetic. In fact, they were telling America that 3% GDP was a thing of the past, and they should only expect 2% from now on.
Historical Drop in the Job Participation Rate – This is a measure of how many working age people in the population are no longer employed. Unlike the unemployment rate, it actually includes people who have quit looking for jobs. The JPR dropped by over 3% during Obama’s terms and it reached the lowest levels not seen since the 1970s. The JPR is one of those metrics that changes slowly, so seeing this kind of drop is pretty Earth shattering.
Little to No Growth in Wages – We alluded to this earlier, but Obama’s economy was plagued by stagnant growth in wages. He simply was not able to move the country into full employment mode. He boasts about job creation, but the data implies many of those were part-time jobs. If one person gets three part time jobs, Obama gets credit for creating three jobs, but that person is struggling to support his or her household. Obama celebrates, thinking he’s done well, yet that one person is suffering.
Worst Economic Recovery Since World War II – To his credit, Obama inherited a mess from George W. Bush. But he was given a generous stimulus package of almost a trillion dollars to boost the economy. Sadly, Obama’s economy barely stayed above a “recession level” growth.
And if these facts aren’t enough, Bill Clinton’s worst economic year was STILL BETTER than Obama’s best economic year. Politifact confirmed this fact.
So ask yourself, do you really think that someone with these horrific financial credentials could be responsible for the economy we are seeing now? His economic report card says “no” – quite emphatically.
4) Listen to Obama’s Own Comments – Remember the story about the 1500 jobs at the Carrier Plant in Indiana? Carrier had decided to move that particular plant to Mexico for a host of reasons that were common for American Companies during Obama’s terms.
Earlier that year while campaigning for Hillary, Obama told the people of that community that those Carrier jobs were gone for good and they would have to beginning “retooling” themselves for new jobs. Trump, who had just won the election but was not yet inaugurated, announced that he was going to make a deal with Carrier to save those jobs.
Obama mocked Trump publicly about this. Listen to the video below for the exact words he used:
Yet Trump convinced the Carrier Plant to stay in the United States. As of this writing, 1100 people still have jobs there, although a few hundred were laid off.
At the time, the main stream media and the democrats argued about the “exact number” of jobs that Trump actually saved and other trivial factors. Who cares? It could be 1500 jobs or 0 jobs. THAT is not the point here. The point is Obama never even tried.
So why was our current President so quick and willing to write those jobs off in the first place? And yet, Trump was willing to fight for them – that’s the difference. Obama didn’t fight for those jobs because he didn’t know there were other alternatives – the thought never crossed his mind. This is the difference between how a “community organizer” and how a “billionaire entrepreneur” thinks.
When you compare these two mindsets, which is the most likely the creator of a booming economy? A President who increase your health premiums over 100%, or the one who cuts your taxes? VERY easy answer to that question, folks.
Not only is Obama NOT responsible for today’s economic growth, he deserves no credit for this new economy because it was his own policies that had prevented growth. Obama only enrages the people who voted for him by trying to steal credit.
Yes, there were 9 million voters who voted for Trump that had previously voted for Obama in 2012. This is because these voters wanted the “hope and change” that Obama promised, but it was Trump who ended up giving it to them.
