New book claims Obama was a “parasite” sucking the Democratic Party dry in order to be re-elected
A “parasite” of the Democratic Party is how journalist Edward Isaac Dovere describes former President Obama in his upcoming anthology “The Battle for the Soul: In the Democrats’ Campaign Against Trump”.
In a chapter entitled “Benign Neglect,” Dovere writes that the section’s namesake is how Obama aides privately described his role as the Democratic Party in the White House. “‘Carelessness’ could be more specific,” writes Dovere, writer for The Atlantic and former chief correspondent for Politico in Washington.
“The numbers are hard to ignore: During his eight-year tenure, Obama monitored a net loss of 947 legislative seats, 63 house seats, 11 senators and 13 governors,” he continues.
In 2008, the Democrats increased their majorities in the House and Senate, and made Obama available for his first two years as lawmaker. In 2010, with the Tea Party wave, Republicans took over a majority in the House of Representatives, and Democrats retained their majority in the Senate, but shrank. In 2014, Republicans took control of the House and Senate.
Dovere writes that the 44th President behaved with “self-confident self-respect”.
“Obama never built or bothered to build a Democratic bank apart from a few scattered candidates who interested him,” the book says. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

Texas wants to take action against demonstrators who block traffic: “This chaos will not be tolerated.”
A bill that would increase penalties for protesters blocking roads and emergency vehicles is on the way to the desk of Greg Abbott, Texas governor.
And the two-term GOP governor, who is standing for re-election next year, says he will legally sign the measure.
“I’ll be signing soon,” Abbott tweeted this weekend. “Peaceful protest does not include blocking roads and preventing emergency vehicles from entering. This chaos will not be tolerated in Texas.”
The governor sent his tweet shortly after the Texas Senate voted 25-5 to pass the bill, which would increase penalties and increase prison sentences for protesters who intentionally prevent emergency vehicles from passing a street or blocking a hospital entrance . CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Kinzinger accuses McCarthy of “not telling the truth”
Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger targets Rep Kevin McCarthy of R-Calif.
“I think Kevin failed to tell the truth,” said Kinzinger on Sunday in an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
Kinzinger was one of only 10 Republicans in the House of Representatives who voted in January to indict then-President Trump of instigating the deadly January 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists in order to obtain Congressional certification of President Biden’s electoral college victory to bother about Trump. And the Conservative lawmaker, first elected to Congress on the 2010 tea party wave, was one of 35 House Republicans who opposed the party leadership last week and voted for a January 6 commission to vote for the Investigate attack on the Capitol.
McCarthy announced his opposition to the formation of the commission last week and worked with the House GOP leadership to limit the number of defects when the entire chamber voted on the matter on Wednesday. While 35 Republicans supported the investigation, the vast majority of the 212-strong GOP conference opposed the move.
Kinzinger accused McCarthy of “not telling the truth to Republicans and the American people, and it pains me to say, and it’s not like I want to get up and say that.”
He noted that a significant number of the 74 million people who voted for Trump “believe the election was stolen, believe it, because their leaders didn’t tell them otherwise. The people they trust have kept silent either or not telling them the truth. ” CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

“From the start, public perception favored the escape from the laboratory,” said Wade. “That perception was heavily influenced by a letter that appeared in The Lancet ridiculing the escape from the laboratory as a conspiracy theory. It said that the escape from the laboratory was the way this virus showed up, and we should go with it Our Chinese colleagues are at the forefront of the fight against the disease.
