The future President of the United States, after visiting the site of Adolf Hitler’s home in Bavaria, wrote: [emphasis added]
You can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. … He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.

Another biography of Barack Obama is soon to be published. Many and various are the articles exposing some of the “bombshells” in the apparently semi-authorized book. (Obama sat for long but off-the-record interviews with the author.) If we look at some of what’s been revealed so far, it’s hard not to notice the hypocrisy of those who today excoriate President Donald Trump for being who he is while lionizing Barack Obama, despite who he is.

David Garrow, Pulitzer-prize winning author of a book on Martin Luther King Jr., has written a book about Barack Obama–Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama–to be released May 9, 2017. Garrow began writing his book in 2008, working on it over the past 9 years. The book, 1460+ pages long, covers Obama’s history from the point where his father allegedly came to the U.S. in the late 1950s through 2016 (but with scant coverage after 2007). Garrow spoke recently on Jamie Weinstein’s radio show:
I think that people irrespective of their political views or partisan identification will be astonished—I cannot say that too strongly—will be profoundly astonished by how much important substance of Barack Obama’s life has not previously been known. … [emphasis added to quotes]

President Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Honest Abe was the very first Republican president, and today is his birthday.

Elizabeth Warren (aka Fauxcahontas) gave the keynote speech on the first night of the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia. She spoke from behind the safety of a wall that you can see at the top of this post. The wall was hastily constructed after the minions got rowdy and rudely booed erstwhile DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz off the stage and out of the convention entirely, and after said minions also (threateningly?) chanted “lock her up” whenever Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned.
A reminder: Hillary is supposed to be the DNC’s annointed one. Dare I say it?
The natives were restless, my friends.
