The rest of the story: What Obama won’t tell you about his legacy - MarketWatch



Trump didn’t wait until Inauguration Day to insert himself into U.S.
foreign policy. He broke with precedent when he intervened to pressure
Egypt to withdraw a draft U.N. resolution condemning Israel, and the
U.S. to veto the final resolution.

At the same time, President
Barack Obama is not going quietly into the night. He has used that pen
of his to sign a rash of last-minute executive orders commuting the
sentences of some prisoners, pardoning others, banning drilling off the
Atlantic coast and in parts of the Arctic Ocean, and declaring 1.65
million acres of desert in Utah and Nevada as national monuments.

he isn’t making mischief for his successor, Obama is busy drafting his
legacy, which will culminate in a reprise of the historic moments of his
presidency as part of a Jan. 10 farewell address in Chicago. (Why wait for others to assess your legacy when you can do it yourself?)

is certain to relate his successes from the past eight years, including
the enactment of the Affordable Care Act and more than six years of
sustained job growth. Then there are a handful of things he would prefer

Lukewarm don't work

This is not only spiritually, but churches that less tolerant of alternate lifestyles are thriving. For those who tried to remain "Neutral" (There is no such thing in the Kingdom) they are dying. They stand for nothing so they drift off into oblivion. If you are a senior leader and passively support spiritual convictions that include compromise with the world .. you are part of a disappearing breed. Compromised Christianity is dying a slow and welcome death. Jesus wasn't too crazy about them either.. spit them out of his mouth.
A Canadian study found that conservative churches are still growing, while less orthodox congregations dwindle away.

It wasn't the Russians

Listening to all the falderal regarding the Russians and Hacking the election foolishness on capital hill with a very political bent on the part of the intelligence community, I think it's high time that we tell ourselves the truth. Listening to McCain, I don't even think he voted for Trump.

We all have a list of people in the public eye that we wish would just dry up and blow away in 2017. They are irrelevant and useless human beings.

5 John Podesta .. Who destroyed the DNC and fumbled every ball
6 Debbie Wasserman Schultz ... Just writing her name is hard
7 Hillary Clinton ... for more reasons than you can know
8 Howard Dean ... who is a real loon
9 Washed up Actors who made a video recently listing demands
10 Steven Colbert who used to be funny... long ago
