The headline read, “Obama jokes that Navy SEALs could remove
Trump from the White House.”
The headline referred to Barack Obama’s graceless comment on the
Jimmy Kimmel show that if President Trump refused to leave the
White House, “Well, I think we can always send the Navy SEALs in
there to dig him out.”
As he did with Kimmel and has done in numerous venues to sell
his latest memoir, “A Promised Land,” Obama has been ridiculing
Trump for challenging election fraud.
What Obama does not want America to know, however, is that he
launched his own career doing just what Trump is doing now.
Obama is banking on the fact that his critics have not bothered
to read his book. Even still, had Obama’s memoir gone to press
after the election, I am confident that one story would never have
made it into the final print run, but it did.
Like so many stories involving Democrats, it begins with some
form of sexual deviation. In 1995, Chicago Congressman Mel Reynolds
made the rookie mistake of getting caught having a sexual
relationship with a chatty 16-year-old campaign worker.
In Chicago, given that it takes a major sex crime to dislodge a
sitting member of Congress, just about every pol without an active
rap sheet rushed to fill this open seat. Among them was State Sen.
Like many of Obama’s Chicago role models, Palmer had a
In 1980, Palmer attended celebrations commemorating the
anniversary of the Cuban and Soviet-backed revolution that
fundamentally transformed this tiny Caribbean nation.
A few years later, Palmer co-founded the Black Press Institute,
which provided a ready platform for every wacko Commie passing
In 1985, four years before the fall of the Berlin wall, she led
a delegation of black journalists to the Soviet Union. In Obama’s
neighborhood, these were all resumé enhancers.
Unfortunately for Palmer, Michelle Obama’s family friend, Jesse
Jackson Jr., also decided to file for the seat and bested Palmer in
Like Reynolds, Jackson’s congressional career led straight to
the slammer. In 2013, young Jackson was sentenced to 30 months in
prison and his wife 12 months for supporting their lavish lifestyle
with campaign donations and failing to report more than a half
million on their tax returns. What do they say about apples falling
But that was all down the road. Not wanting to give up her state
Senate gig, Palmer filed anew for her old Senate seat. The problem
here was that she had already encouraged Obama to run for the
“A few of her longtime supporters asked for a meeting, and when
I showed up they advised me to get out of the race,” writes Obama
in “A Promised Land.”
“The community couldn’t afford to give up Alice’s seniority,
they said. I should be patient; my turn would come.” (“A Promised
Land,” 28) Obama ignored the pressure and continued his
Palmer’s run for office, however, was quickly derailed, and the
Obama campaign did the derailing. Palmer’s problem was not her sex
life, but the signatures on her petition to re-enter the race.
“They’re terrible. Worst I’ve ever seen,” Obama quotes one of
his backers as saying. “All those Negroes who were trying to bully
you out of the race, they didn’t bother actually doing the work.
This could get her knocked off the ballot.”
WND readers will be shocked to learn some of the problems Obama
was seeing: invalid signatures, addresses outside the district,
multiple signatures with the same handwriting. Imagine that!
“We’ve all been busting our asses out here,” a female supporter
tells Obama. “And now, when she tries to screw you, and can’t even
do that right, you’re going to let her get away with it? You don’t
think they would knock you off the ballot in a second if they
Knowing how urban Democratic politics worked, Obama’s people
challenged the signatures of all four of his primary
opponents. The Cook County Election Board spent a weary five days
going signature-by-signature through the petitions.
According to Obama biographer David Garrow, one Board member
reported that “signatures were struck if they were obvious
forgeries, if names were printed rather than signed, if the
individual had listed an address outside the 13th Senate District,
or if the individual was not registered at the specified
At the end of the review, the Board declared all four of the
opponents’ petitions invalid. Obama ending up running unopposed in
As Obama knows better than anyone, inner-city Democratic
politics have been ripe with fraud since at least the days of Boss
Tweed a century-and-a-half ago.
If they gave a Nobel Prize for hypocrisy, that is one award
Obama would actually deserve.
