Obama’s ‘Final Year’—finally gone!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 18, 2018

Subtitle: Why Donald Trump is in the White House!

 

Obama's men and Power

Ben Rhodes, Samantha Power, John Kerry,  and of course Obama.  Four reasons (five if you throw in Susan Rice) why Trump won!

 

There is a new documentary film being released (in a few theaters near you) about the final year of the Obama Administration and how their foreign policy decisions (blunders!) helped put Trump in the White House.

But, the film idea didn’t start out that way. When filming began, Trump wasn’t supposed to win!

Be prepared for a sympathetic look, dripping with nostalgia, for the good ol’ days.

My special interest in viewing the film is to see what more the ever-cocky Samantha Power has to say.  You will find her discussed many times over the years here at RRW from her earliest mention in 2008 as Obama’s ‘Iraqi refugee czar’ to her rise to her UN catbird seat.

See the trailer (here if it doesn’t play below):  Pay special attention to the 1:25 minute mark (5 months left which means it would have been early September 2016) where Samantha Power says this:

“We have to be sure to make it harder to dismantle if we take a different turn.”

Does she mean make it harder to dismantle Obama’s foreign policy legacy (which was pretty lousy anyway) in case Trump wins? Did she suspect then that Trump might very well succeed?

The dossier and the FISA applications????  Wasn’t she fingered as a chief ‘unmasker?’ Hmmm!

 

 

(By the way, the 1:38 minute mark is pretty good too—Ben Rhodes realizes that they have lost!)

Now here is a bit of the text from the Times of Israel where the reporter seems to be wishing the Obama gang was back.

‘The Final Year’ follows the Obama administration’s last attempt to shape world affairs. (Magnolia Pictures)

For those tired of watching reruns of “The West Wing,” there’s a new political thriller out — and it just so happens to be real.

The recently released documentary “The Final Year” is the story of the Obama administration’s final 12 months in office as told by former president Barack Obama’s foreign policy team.

Leading roles are played by Obama administration stars. US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power and Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, along with Secretary of State John Kerry — and the president himself — all race against the clock to broker a deal with Iran, negotiate a climate accord in Paris and find a solution to the Syrian crisis, among the other issues on their diplomatic agenda.

For the individuals portrayed in the documentary, “The Final Year” was intended to solidify Obama’s foreign policy legacy, but President Donald Trump’s ultimate victory leaves the Obama team more stunned than assured.

“We tried to change the ending but we couldn’t do it,” joked director Greg Barker in an interview with The Times of Israel …..

[….]

“Samantha [Power] gets very excited and we’re talking about these ideas, and I’m thinking, ‘Wow, this is great. We’re going to change the world.’”

But by the fourth quarter of Obama’s final term, the glamour of their vision had succumbed to the political reality of the office.

The role refugees played in Trump’s victory….

Barker said that Power now believes that the Obama administration’s failure to take definitive action in Syria prompted a domino-effect of world events.

“[Power] will say that you can make the case that without the Syria tragedy and the outflow of refugees, you may well not have had Brexit in the UK, you may well not have had Trump without this fear of ‘The Other’ which was perpetrated by a million refugees flowing into Europe,” Barker said.

“She’ll make the case that the world could be a very different place [if not for the Syria crisis],” he added.

More here.

Note that comments to the Times of Israel are not flattering to the team.

Heck, it would be fun to watch this in a theater wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat!

  1. And the funniest thing is that Powers seems not to understand that it was the Obama administration that deliberately fomented the Syrian crisis. She takes no responsibility for it. But then, when did a Democrat ever take responsibility for the wreckage they leave in their wake. They wouldn’t have anything to talk about!

    UNBELIEVABLE! What color is the sky in their world? ….So many traitors connected to an administration, that almost destroyed America, and the world as a result. Just look at the hot-spots and flash points all over the world, which were fueled by, and even manufactured by these lightweight ethereal thinkers…Many of these people made (MAKE) Benedict Arnold look like a boy scout. …And, they are still at it! Michael Savage is correct: “liberalism Is A Mental Disorder”… They almost took all of us right down the swirling toilet…

    Thanks, Ann, for educating SO many of us on refugee resettlement!

    If you didn’t know already, Samantha Power’s husband is Cass Sunstein, author of ‘Nudge,’ (how the Left is constantly operating-nudging our country constantly to the left.)

  5. Excellent thanks for sharing Ann. We all know people like the Ben Rhodes, and Samantha Powers’, John Kerry’s of the world. Arrogant, know it all elites that think they are so far above the average person in intelligence, power, money etc. Like Joy Behar, they look down their noses at us and at those that have different religious beliefs, and go so far as to lie and cheat to further their agenda. Their only values are those that will keep them in power. Despite what these people think about the stupidity of the average American,(remember Gruber) those average Americans are what got TRUMP elected. Praise the lord and I pray he will continue to fight this dominance of the power brokers.
