In an unprecedented move, the United States President Donald J. Trump has extended an olive branch to his predecessor, Barack Obama, offering him a special role in his administration.
After a brief discussion by phone this afternoon Trump said that he and Obama had agreed that he would join his administration this fall in a very important capacity.
After a year of intensive training, on September 10, 2018, Barack Obama and his team including Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch will be sent to the Middle East to fill a vacancy left by the Obama Administration.
Obama will assume the role of Ambassador to Libya and will serve in the city of Benghazi.
When asked for comment about this new opportunity, Obama replied “What difference, at this point does it make?”
So sorry, we could not help ourselves.
Lighten up people, IT’S a JOKE!
If you liked this, share it! Give someone a healthy dose of Obama Humor for the day!
Life is complex enough in itself. Our duty is to make it as fun and pleasant as it can possibly be even in adversity. I believe, one must have sense of humor in order to carry through and lighten the burden of our every day mental stress. Otherwise, life’s trying times could drown us in self-pity and bitterness. Life is too short. To cry over spilled milk not only stalls you, but takes away the joy of our experience in life.
We are subjected to trivial and significant challenges every day. The way we choose to respond to them is what will make the difference. To certain extent one has the power to make the best out of the worst situation,. Just tackle it with a sense of humor. It’s sort of a reminder of the old adage that says, “If life throws you lemons, make yourself a lemonade.”
Along my life’s journey I realized that regardless of any given situation ‘s status, the psychological burden that comes with it is easier to deal with, if is taken with a sense of humor. Living life is a serious business. But if we see things from the bright perspective even when there isn’t one, it’ll help you fell less stressed during your sad moments.
The scandal of Benghazi is one that plagued the Obama administration repeatedly — the effort to deflect attention from failed American foreign policy and the rise of terrorism — through a conscious spin effort that hid the truth from the American public.
The Obama administration knew attacks on the consulate were because of terrorism, but they knowingly changed the narrative to blame an “inflammatory” viral video — to escape any culpability of the attacks so close to a November election. In the 2012 campaign, Mr. Obama repeatedly spoke of not only killing Osama bin Laden, but how Al Qaeda had been “decimated” under his watch. Any word Benghazi was actually a terrorist attack would undermine this narrative.
In her first public comment on the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, Mrs. Clinton’s first public statement released at 10:08 p.m. blamed the attack on a viral video.
“I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today,” said Mrs. Clinton, then secretary of state. “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
Privately, in a summary of a call between Mrs. Clinton and the President of Libya Mohammad al Magariaf about three hours earlier, there was no talk of a viral video, only terrorism.
“[O]ur diplomatic mission was attacked[.] … [T]here is a gun battle ongoing, which I understand Ansar as-Sharia [sic]is claiming responsibility for,” a transcript of the call read.
After Mrs. Clinton made her public statements, blaming the video, she then emailed her daughter with the truth:
“Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda like group.”
The next day, Mrs. Clinton told the American public the administration was “working to determine the precise motivations” of those who carried out the assaults (just like the Orlando attack), but that “some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet.”
Privately, she told the Egyptian Prime minister: “We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest. … Based on the information we saw today we believe the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al Qaeda.”
Another day goes by, and publicly Mrs. Clinton continues to blame the internet video in her remarks in Morocco.
On Sept. 14, White House spokesman Jay Carney, answering a question about Benghazi during a press conference, said: “We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive. And while the violence is reprehensible and unjustified, it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of, or to U.S. policy.”
This was a blatant lie. But it was spin directed from the top — Mr. Obama’s and Mrs. Clinton’s political future was at stake, after all.
