“US president Barack Obama is shaping up to be the biggest liar ever to occupy the White House. A bigger liar than even Bill “I did not have sex with that woman” Clinton. It would be too time consuming to list all of Obama’s untruths…”

6/29/10 ABCDEmocrat News reported (coming to us via Politico) “The Taliban in Afghanistan is, in some ways, stronger than it was when President Barack Obama took office, CIA Director Leon Panetta said Sunday… “In some ways they are stronger, but in some ways they are weaker as well. I think the fact that we are disrupting al Queda’s operations in the tribal areas of Pakistan, the fact that we are targeting Taliban leadership. … I think all of that has weakened them the same time. So in some areas, with regards to some of the directed violence, they seem to be stronger…”
6/30/2010 Ben Smith at the Politico reports that testimony in the trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (Blago) is in direct contradiction to the White House’s statements. Team Obama says the Prez had nothing to do with filling his vacated senate seat. Not so fast! “Illinois SEIU chief Tom Balanoff, testifying under oath, provides a clear narrative of something the White House has flatly denied in the past: That Obama sought to have Valerie Jarrett to replace him in the Senate. Tom Balanoff, head of the SEIU in Illinois, testified today that Obama called him the night before the 2008 election to say that while he would not be taking a public position, he believed Valerie Jarrett would fit his standards of being good for Illinois and able to hold the seat in 2010. Balanoff quoted Obama as saying: “I would much prefer she [serve in the White House] but she does want to be Senator and she does meet those criteria.” The White House does not seem to have denied this sequence, but certainly offered extremely evasive answers when asked about it, as in this apparent denial from David Axelrod soon after Blagojevich was indicted. “[Obama] always – his preference was … always that she serve in the White House,” he said…”
6/30/2010 From Craig Crawford at the H.R. Huff-n-Stuff Post: “Barack Obama beat Hillary Clinton as an anti-war candidate. But it was a lie that his supporters chose to ignore. Gen. David Petraeus’s congressional testimony on Tuesday makes clear that the Obama Administration is for more war, not less. He advocated more fighting in Afghanistan by loosening the rules of engagement, and all but erased the President’s faux deadline for exiting by next summer. It’s hard to image he would say such things without Obama’s tacit approval. Let’s face it, for whatever reason, Obama played his base for the fool, winning the Democratic Party nomination in 2008 by perpetuating a fraud.”
6/30/2010 Hard to believe, but this one is from Couric-BS News: “President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform is meeting today as part of its efforts to craft recommendations by December on how best to address America’s red-ink problem. Mr. Obama established the commission in February, saying debt and deficits can “hobble our economy” and “saddle every child in America with an intolerable burden.” Yet the president’s decision to establish a commission to address a problem he described as potentially catastrophic seems odd in light of his earlier criticism of commissions in general. As Ari Shapiro noted on National Public Radio today, the president mocked the notion of commissions to address problems back when he was a candidate. Here’s Mr. Obama on September 18, 2008, not long after the economic collapse: “Senator McCain’s first answer to this economic crisis was – get ready for it – a commission. That’s Washington-speak for ‘we’ll get back to you later.‘” “Folks, we don’t need a commission to spend a few years and a lot of taxpayer money to tell us what’s going on in our economy,” he continued. “We don’t need a commission to tell us gas prices are high or that you can’t pay your bills. We don’t need a commission to tell us you’re losing your jobs. We don’t need a commission to study this crisis, we need a President who will solve it – and that’s the kind of President I intend to be.” — Uh-huh. ConservativeAmerican.org marks this as another lie for Mr. Obama.
7/1/2010 The Bush Commander that Barack had to bring back to fight the Afghan war says no one ever asked the military about Team Obama’s July, 2011 date to get out of Afghanistan! From the Reaganite Republican and Freedom’s Lighthouse…
7/1/2010 Speaking in Racine, Wisconsin yesterday, President Obama talked about how great his economic stimulus plan has been. “It’s our job as a nation to advocate on behalf of the America we hope for – to make decisions that will benefit the next generation. Even if it’s not always popular. Even if we can’t always see those benefits in the short-term.” — Or the long term, or ever.
7/1/2010 Also in Wisconsin yesterday, Obama: “We want an extension of unemployment benefits for workers who lost their job through no fault of their own… Unfortunately, a minority of Senators from the other party has a different idea. As we speak, they’re using their power to stop this relief from going to the American people. In fact, they won’t even let these measures come up for a vote.” Not true. Republicans don’t have the votes to prevent the extension of unemployment benefits. The fact is some Socialist-Democrats have now decided against extending these benefits. That’s why it isn’t passing this time. Obama knows that. He just chooses to lie about it.
7/1/2010 Believe it or not, this one comes from U.S. Democrat News and World Socialist Report: “President Obama traveled to Racine, Wisconsin, yesterday to talk about the economy. And while he spoke again about fiscal responsibility, read closely how he couched his remarks… What jumps out at me are the phrases: “somebody’s going to have to pay that back,” “in a gradual way reduce spending,” “our project for the next couple of years,” and “not … overnight.” – “Compare the actions of European leaders to those of Obama, who promises to take America’s ballooning deficits seriously–at some indefinite point in the future. The Europeans are not waiting for a commission, or the next election, or some kind of alignment of stars. They don’t believe they have any time to waste and are pushing forward now,” writes USA Today.” – ConservativeAmerican.org notes he also talks about the deficit as if HE had nothing to do with it! After griping about the high Bush deficits, Obama quadrupled the deficit in just a few months! This is HIS doing!
7/5/2010 Forget returning to the moon or even heading to Mars, Obama’s NASA Chief says his number one job is “to improve relations with the Muslim world!!” OMG! We wish we were kidding! From Fox: “NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world. Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA’s orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel. “When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview.” — ConservativeAmerican.org is glad it’s not smoking the same stuff these guys are! Here’s the 21-minute video on YouTube. UPDATE 7/9/10: Couric-BS, Microsoft-NBC, and ABCDEmocrat News ignore the story!!
The Wall Street Journal and Fox News say first Obama decried, then used some of the Bush drilling policies! “In his presidential campaign, President Obama criticized the Bush administration for being too soft on the oil industry and vowed to support greener energy forms. But, once in office, President Obama ended up backing offshore drilling, bowing to political and fiscal realties, even as his administration’s own scientists and Democratic lawmakers warned about its risks…”
“Less than four months after President Barack Obama took office, his new administration received a forceful warning about the dangers of offshore oil drilling. The alarm was rung by a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which found that the government was unprepared for a major spill at sea, relying on an “irrational” environmental analysis of the risks of offshore drilling. The April 2009 ruling stunned both the administration and the oil industry, and threatened to delay or cancel dozens of offshore projects in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico… Despite its pro-environment pledges, the Obama administration urged the court to revisit the decision. Politically, it needed to push ahead with conventional oil production… The U.S. Court of Appeals reversed its decision and allowed drilling in the Gulf to proceed—including on BP PLC’s now-infamous Macondo well, 50 miles off the Louisiana coast.” More here from the Wall Street Journal. UPDATE 7/14/10: Mommy Life posts this video detailing many of Obama Gulf Oil Blunders…
Sweetness and Light sheds the light on this one:
“Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule on Aug. 31. Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’” The ‘surge’ which Messrs Obama and Biden both vehemently opposed led to the success of the combat mission. And the withdraw timetable that is now being followed was agreed to long before Mr. Obama was even elected. But when has Mr. Biden ever let reality get in the way of one of his imbecilic claims? …neither he nor his boss deserve one iota of credit for any of this. They were on side of our country’s enemies on the war in Iraq, just as they usually are on every issue.”
7/6/2010 Couric-BS News reports the Feds today filed suit to block the Arizona Immigration law. “The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Arizona’s new law targeting illegal immigrants, setting the stage for a clash between the federal government and the state over the nation’s toughest immigration crackdown. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Phoenix argues that Arizona’s law requiring state and local police to question and possibly arrest illegal immigrants during the enforcement of other laws such as traffic violations usurps federal authority.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes they left out the fact that Obama’s federal authorities only need “usurping” because they’re not enforcing the law! Obama just wants to use the border crisis to create new socialist-democrat voters. UPDATE 7/14/10: Forbes magazine says the lawsuit is “the Obama Administration’s Hypocrisy” on immigration.
7/6/2010 Couric-BS News: “The TSA implemented a new policy blocking its employees from accessing any websites that contain a “controversial opinion” on work computers. “This policy is terrible,” said Louis Maltby, President of the National Workrights Institute, a non-profit group that advocates for workplace rights. Maltby points out that anything on the internet could be deemed controversial and if blocked, in some cases, could cross the line of violating a worker’s right to information. Employees of the TSA, responsible for nation’s airport security, were informed of the new policy Friday in an internal memo. The memo states that websites with a “controversial opinion” are “inappropriate for government access” in addition to any websites that have “Chat/Messaging”, “Criminal activity”, “Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content” and “Gaming” – all of which are now being blocked….” — Rush Limbaugh today noted the policy doesn’t even mention going to porn sites! — ConservativeAmerican.org is likely not allowed at the TSA!
Thousands of U.S. Soldiers have died during the Iraq war, yet the Vice President apparently doesn’t count them! Nor does he count the 706 (as of 7/6/10) soldiers who have died since he and President Obama took office. The Vice President, just returning from Iraq, made the following outrageous statement: ““I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts . . .that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home.” UPDATE 7/9/10: No one in MSM, not even Fox News, picks up on this scandal!
7/7/2010 Both parties use recess appointments. The problem here is that President Obama is appointing a man who loves the European Socialist model of healthcare to be in charge of Medicare and Medicaid! Dr. Berwick’s name came up during the whole Death Panels debate. From the CATO Institute: “…in fairness, with a few minor exceptions governing Medicare reimbursements, the law does not directly ration care or allow the government to dictate how doctors practice medicine. But if President Obama wanted to keep a lid on that particular controversy, he just selected about the worst possible nominee for director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the office that oversees government health care programs. Obama’s pick, Dr. Donald Berwick, is an outspoken admirer of the British National Health Service and its rationing arm, the National Institute for Clinical Effectiveness (NICE)…To Dr. Berwick , this is exactly how it should be. “NICE is not just a national treasure,” he says, “it is a global treasure.” And, Dr. Berwick wants to bring NICE-style rationing to this country. “It’s not a question of whether we will ration care,” he said in a magazine interview for Biotechnology Healthcare, “It is whether we will ration with our eyes open.” UPDATE 3/5/11: National Review says dems may be abandoning the notion of making the Berwick appointment permanent. “Last year, in a highly irregular maneuver, President Obama took advantage of a brief Senate recess to appoint Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a.k.a. CMS, which controls a budget larger than that of the Defense Department. This avoided a public Senate hearing, where Berwick’s controversial views would have been further explored. (I never tire of quoting Berwick’s eloquent opposition to the “darkness of private enterprise.”) A few weeks back, I discussed the re-nomination of Berwick to the post. Now comes word, via Brett Coughlin of Politico, that Senate Democrats “have given up on confirming Don Berwick as CMS administrator in the wake of a letter from 42 Republican senators opposing the nomination.” Meanwhile Sarah Palin tweeted today “Obviously hope Obama’s radical pick is abandoned;watch for replacement though.” Good point. The next nut could be even worse!
7/7/2010 Arizona Governor Jan Brewer wants to know why Obama’s Department of Anti-White Justice is filing suit against her state for helping to enforce federal law, while at the same time it refuses to sue so-called “Sanctuary City” communities that REFUSE to ENFORCE federal law. Darn good question and blatant hypocrisy from the half-black President with a full-size anti-white chip on his shoulder! UPDATE 7/8/10: White House Spinmeister Robert BeeGee’s Brothers Gibbs is asked why there’s no lawsuit against any sanctuary city. He replies that he doesn’t know (!) and will try to find an answer.
7/7/2010 Obama’s VA apparently blew the handling of this scandal. Fox Nation: “The Democratic chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee lambasted the Obama administration over its handling of an incident at a St. Louis VA center in which more than 1,800 veterans were told they may have been exposed to HIV. “It’s outrageous, one, that this happens, but even worse is this secretive, almost cover-up mode that they go into when something like this happens,” Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.) said on CNN Monday. The Department of Veterans Affairs last month sent a letter to 1,812 patients informing them that could have been exposed to HIV and other deadly viruses because of dental equipment that was insufficiently sterilized over a period of 13 months. The agency said the risk of infection was “extremely low” but it urged patients to return for blood tests. Filner criticized the administration for taking more than three months to send out the letters after it discovered the faulty safety precautions in March. “We should be much more caring not only about the procedures but the way we deal with them after they’re known,” the congressman said. He said it was “disgraceful” that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki did not know about the lapse until last week.”
7/7/2010 Investors Business Daily: “Every year, the Annual Report of the Social Security Board of Trustees comes out between mid-April and mid-May. Now it’s July, and there’s no sign of this year’s report. What is the Obama administration hiding? The annual report includes detailed information about Social Security and its financing over the next 75 years, produced by the Office of the Actuary of the Social Security Administration. The Congressional Budget Office reported last week in its Long Term Budget Outlook that Social Security was already running a deficit this year. According to last year’s Social Security Trustees Report, that was not supposed to happen until 2015, with the trust fund to run out completely by 2037. With the disastrous Obama economy, the great Social Security surplus that started in the Reagan administration is gone completely…”
7/9/2010 From Kevin Q. on FB and the Rush Limbaugh Show: “OBAMA: A young woman named Emma Lazarus, whose own family fled persecution from Europe generations earlier took up the cause of these new immigrants. RUSH: She did not. OBAMA: Although she was a poet, she spent much of her time advocating for better health care, housing for the newcomers. RUSH: That’s a crock. OBAMA: And inspired by what she saw and heard she wrote down her thoughts and donated a piece of work to help pay for the construction of a new statue. RUSH: Wrong. OBAMA: The Statue of Liberty. RUSH: Wrong. OBAMA: Which actually was funded in part by small donations from people across America. RUSH: Stop the tape right there. She entered a contest. She wrote a poem. The contest was to raise money to pay for the PEDESTAL, not the statue. She was not inspired by immigrants. The Statue of Liberty had nothing to do with immigration. The Statue of Liberty is not on the Arizona-Mexico border. It is not the Statue of Immigration. It was not constructed to show the way to the United States for the huddled masses, the tired, the poor, the hungry, the thirsty. Emma Lazarus’ poem had nothing to do with the construction of the statue. It’s not even posted on the statue. It’s posted on the pedestal inside, and it took years and years and years for that to happen after her poem was chosen in the contest. OBAMA: Years before the statue was built, years before it would be seen by throngs of immigrants craning their necks skyward at the end of a long and brutal voyage, years before it would come to symbolize everything that we cherish, she imagined what it could mean. She imagined the site of a giant statue at the entry point of a great nation. But unlike the great monuments of the past, this would not signal an empire. Instead, it would signal one’s arrival to a place of opportunity and refuge — RUSH: All right, hold it, hold it. Hold it right here, right here. In the first place, I misspoke. It was not a contest. She donated the poem as a work of art, but the Statue of Liberty was built by the French, a French person in the 1800s, as a gift to celebrate our Declaration of Independence. It had nothing to do with immigration…”
Rush Hudson Limbaugh: “OBAMA: There are some people who argue that we should abandon some of these efforts. Some people who make a political calculation that it’s better to say “no” to everything than to lend a hand to clean up the mess that we’ve been in. I mean this has been a difficult time for America right now. Two years of brutal recession, a decade of economic insecurity — RUSH: Decade? OBAMA: — and there are going to be some hard days ahead. That’s the truth. It’s going to take a while for us to dig ourselves out of this hole. RUSH: It’s going to take us a while to plug the hole, and it’s gonna take a while to secure the border. We’re not even going to try to do that. I thought we turned the corner. I thought we’re back from the brink. I thought we’re on a roll now. …”
7/9/2010 Obama during Israeli TV interview: “Some of it may just be that my middle name is Hussein. That creates suspicion…”
[VIDEO MAY NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE]
View from the Right takes apart this Obama lie.
7/11/2010 Voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers was just the tip of the iceberg… – Film-maker (and lifelong Democrat) Gigi Gaston says, “This documentary is about the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign. We the People have made this film. Democrats have sent in their stories from all parts of America. We want to be heard and let the country know how our party has sanctioned the actions of what we feel are Obama Campaign “Chicago Machine” dirty politics. We believe this infamous campaign of “change” from Chicago encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote, which is, of course, all documented in “We Will Not Be Silenced.” …We believe The Democratic National Committee (DNC) made a grave error by depriving American voters of their choice of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. Senator Clinton, by all accounts, except caucuses, won the Primary Election and, therefore, should be the 2008 Democratic Nominee. That didn’t happen, due largely to illegitimate and illegal acts.
7/12/2010 Dan Froomkin writes at EducationNews.org, “Obama made scientific integrity an issue in his presidential campaign, and his March 9, 2009 memo outlined a series of high-minded principles — advocating, for instance, for “transparency in the preparation, identification, and use of scientific and technological information in policymaking.” The memo also ordered John Holdren, the director of the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to develop guidelines “designed to guarantee scientific integrity throughout the executive branch.” Obama gave Holdren 120 days. That deadline came and went. And Friday is its one-year anniversary.
The White House won’t explain what’s holding things up. In a June 18 posting on the White House website, Holdren simply said that “the process has been more laborious and time-consuming than expected at the outset.” He set a new deadline, saying he would deliver “a high-quality product” to Obama “in the next few weeks.” (That was three weeks ago (as of Froomkin’s publish date of 9/7/10).” — More here from Osborne Ink.
7/12/2010 Mediaite.com reports, “Obama’s assertion at a fundraiser in Las Vegas on Thursday that the Republicans “are peddling that same snake oil that they’ve been peddling now for years” made the rounds of the Sunday shows… George Will noted that this new attempt to try and make the November midterms a choice between Obama and Republicans (rather than) simply a referendum on his presidency was not going to cut it: “No, because he (Obama) is an expert on snake oil. This is the man who said, if we pass the $767 billion stimulus bill, which it turns out costs $862 billion, a $95 million oops, we would have unemployment at 8 percent and no higher, and it went higher. This is the man who, in another form of snake oil, said we have this wonderful idea of homeowner tax credits for buying first-time homeowners, which we now realize has largely subsidized home purchases that would have been made anyway. This is the man who last week was out saying, “I’m going to give $2 billion, about $2 billion, to two companies to create about 1,600 jobs.” That’s $1.5 million per job. That is snake oil…”
7/12/2010 From the Irregular Times website: “David Axelrod’s message to liberals who are upset about Barack Obama’s embrace of George W. Bush’s policies: You shouldn’t expect any better. “My admonition would be: Don’t make the perfect the enemy of the good,” he said to them yesterday. The top Obama advisor apparently believes that Barack Obama doesn’t need to do anything more to satisfy the liberals who were Obama’s base of support in the 2008 presidential election. He asks us to look for the “good”… How about Obama’s broken promise to reform the Office of Faith-Based Initiative’s corrupt system of religious patronage? How is that good?”
7/12/2010 The Associated Democrat Press reports: “The Obama administration’s recent move to drop rhetorical references to Islamic radicalism is drawing fire in a new report warning the decision ignores the role religion can play in motivating terrorists. Several prominent counterterror experts are challenging the administration’s shift in its recently unveiled National Security Strategy, saying the terror threat should be defined in order to fight it. The question of how to frame the conflict against al-Qaida and other terrorists poses a knotty problem. The U.S. is trying to mend fences with Muslim communities while toughening its strikes against militant groups. In the report, scheduled to be released this week, counterterrorism experts from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy argue that the U.S. could clearly articulate the threat from radical Islamic extremists “without denigrating the Islamic religion in any way.” President Barack Obama has argued that words matter, and administration officials have said that the use of inflammatory descriptions linking Islam to the terror threat feed the enemy’s propaganda and may alienate moderate Muslims in the U.S.
7/12/2010 Media-ite says it’s possible the President inflated his number of followers on Twitter: “Forget that Black Panther voter intimidation nonsense, this is the real scandal! An Australian organization named uSocial has accused a number of public figures of gaming their Twitter accounts by inflating their numbers of followers. The list of people accused includes Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even the most powerful man in the free world: Justin Bieber! Oh, and also President Obama. This is clearly shocking, earth-shattering news, but how can we trust some Australian website over our own politicians and floppy haired tween sensations? Well, according to New Jersey Newsdesk, uSocial would know these people are cheating the system because it’s their job to show people how to do just that…”
7/12/2010 Fox News: “White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden must have misspoken when he told Al Jazeera last month that one of his top priorities is to reach out to Muslim countries. “That was not his task and that’s not the task of NASA,” Gibbs said. Bolden, though, said last month in the interview that it was President Obama who gave him that task. He made a similar claim in February” — Frugal Cafe says Obama always has room to toss another person under the bus! This time it was Bolden. UPDATE 7/15/10: Fox News reports Republican Rep. Pete Olsen tells them Bolden confirmed to him months ago that the Muslim mission was priority #1. More Lies from the White House!
7/13/10 Catherine Herridge of Fox News was among those who took a tour of the Islamic radical terrorist prison camp at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base yesterday. She reports not only has President Obama failed to close the prison as promised, he has turned it into the lap of luxury for the murdering thugs held there!! They get Wii and PlayStation 3 game systems, books like the Twilight series, classes on personal finance, resume building and staying healthy!! This is an absolute outrage. The Islamic Extremists could have no better friend in the White House than President Obama. Maybe they will like us now and stop killing us since we let them play exercise games on the Wii game system! President Obama should resign or be impeached.
7/14/10 A Half-Black President honors a former KKK member? Hmmm. Reporter Lloyd Marcus at Before It’s News: ” the democrats and the liberal mainstream media had a cow over comments made by republican Trent Lott at Sen. Strom Thurmond’s 100th birthday party? Lott was forced to resign as Senate Republican majority leader. Here’s what Lott said, “When Strom Thurmond ran for president we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years either.” In 1948, Thurmond ran for U.S. president as a segregationist. Now, let’s get real folks. Lott is not an idiot. In 2007, no politician in his right mind would publicly say he is for segregation. So, that is obviously not what Lott meant by his comment. Lott was simply attempting to make an old man feel good… Meanwhile, the late democrat Sen. Robert Byrd was a bona fide member of the KKK. He even founded a chapter. At Sen. Byrd’s funeral, Bill Clinton and President Obama basically gave Byrd a pass for his involvement with the Klan. The liberal mainstream media is strangely silent regarding Byrd’s racism. The liberal mainstream media chooses to ignore real democrat racism while reading implied racism into virtually every republican comment. They clearly invoke a double standard.” ConservativeAmerican.org asks why Obama is so willing to give Byrd the “Grace of God,” but not a republican like Lott?!
7/14/10 FB Friend Lisa Grass and Judicial Watch point out: “In a comical move even for a czar-happy president who has rewarded dozens of cronies with distinguished titles, the White House has named the Obama’s personal Chicago cook as “Senior Policy Adviser for Healthy Food Initiatives.” It’s no joke, even though is sounds like a bad one. The Chicago chef’s rapid ascension, reported this week by a conservative Washington D.C. newspaper, has been kept under the radar for the last month. Sam Kass went from being a 20-something, Windy City gourmet cook—privately paid by the Obama’s to feed them—to big-time White House adviser in a matter of months. In between, Michelle Obama made Kass a “Food Initiative Coordinator” for her new healthy nutrition program which is supposed to eliminate childhood obesity within a generation, especially in the nation’s inner cities. The First Lady claims that childhood obesity is a threat to national security and a crisis equivalent to AIDS and youth violence. Because it’s such a dire situation, she has convinced her husband’s administration to spend $400 million a year to bring “healthy foods” to low-income neighborhoods and $10 billion to revise a decades-old federal measure that already feeds tens of millions of poor children at school for free.
7/14/10 From Christian Newswire: “The Department of Health and Human Services under radical abortion promoter Kathleen Sebelius has approved the first disbursement of federal tax dollars to pay for abortions, despite an Executive Order that promised the American people such abortion funding would not be permitted. As part of Obama’s health care plan, Pennsylvania will receive $160 million to fund a “high risk” insurance pool. Those in the pool will qualify to have any abortion legal in the State of Pennsylvania paid for by taxpayers. “We knew when Obama signed the Executive Order that would have allegedly blocked tax funding of abortion that it wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on. Now that has been proven to be true,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is shocking and disturbing to see the ease at which Obama and Sebelius can flat-out lie to the American people and apparently get away with it. This kind of dishonest treatment of the American people and disregard for agreements made and signed shows that the word of both Obama and Sebelius cannot be trusted, which makes them unfit to serve – something we have been saying all along.” — ConservativeAmerican.org asks if the President will face a question on this from the White House Press Corps? Will he be made to explain his lie? This is another example of ruling against the will of the people as most Americans do not want their taxes used to kill babies.
7/14/2010 I sure got tired of hearing the lame line that Bush was stupid for eight years. You still hear it. Here’s one you didn’t hear about. Vice President Joey Buttafuoco Bite-Me Biden thinks he is the President! On a July 8th visit to Portland, Oregon Biden talked about the “O’Biden” administration! The O-Biden?! A little desire, perhaps, by Biden to put his own name first? Harry Esteve from the Oregonian gives him cover at Oregon Live: “Famously gaffe-prone, Biden’s only misstep was a quickly corrected reference to the “O’Biden” administration.” Italics are mine. Back to Esteve: “Biden, who is in charge of the $850 billion stimulus program, hailed it as a success, saying… “This is going to become the template for how government functions under the O’Biden — the Obama-Biden — administration,” he said. “It’s about making government work.”
7/15/2010 Sean Hannity reports that the first meeting of President Obama’s new Gulf Oil Spill Commission was a joke. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he would look to the committee for information to back up his desire for an offshore drilling ban. Yet, Hannity says, the Department of Interior said earlier that this would NOT be the purpose of the commission! Co-Chair William Reilly said that this “was not our understanding” and the group decided it needed to clarify its own purpose!!! The meeting was a joke and one person speaking to the commission even brought a guitar along and sang a song to the members. Your Obama Administration and your tax dollars at work!
7/16/2010 With more than 100 soldier deaths since June 1st, Commander in Chief Barack Obama is taking his family off to another vacation, this one in Maine. The Associated Democrat Press story is not about his apparent disregard for his job though, instead their report talks about how the poor Obama’s usually have something spoil their vacation! “President Barack Obama and his family are heading off Friday for the weekend to a spectacular national park on the coast of Maine, no doubt hoping this latest jaunt doesn’t fall victim to the Obama family travel hex.” — ConservativeAmerican.org: Obama’s are victims now?! Back to AP: “That would be the one in which events seem to scramble the plans whenever Obama has his wife and daughters in the mix. In a mere 18 months on the job, Obama has rolled up an impressive record of diversions, interruptions, delays and outright cancellations of planned family travel — all thanks to the nonstop demands of a turbulent presidency. On Friday, the first family was to fly to Bar Harbor, Maine, and spend much of the weekend in Acadia National Park, enjoying its breathtaking ocean views and nature trails… Despite two wars and an economic collapse crowding his plate, Obama’s taken comparatively little time off… According to a tally kept by Mark Knoller, a CBS News reporter long recognized by the White House as authoritative on such matters, Obama has spent all or part of 65 days on vacation, including days at Camp David. At this point in his tenure, George W. Bush had spent 120 days. That included 13 trips to his Texas ranch. That hasn’t stopped critics from complaining. GOP Chairman Michael Steele, for one, has been scathing — calling it incredible that Obama goes on golf outings while oil flows into the Gulf. The White House dismisses such gripes. “I don’t think that there’s a person in this country (who) doesn’t think that their president ought to have a little time to clear his mind.” –ConservativeAmerican.org notes the AP story has no quotes from any source mentioning how upset the left, including stars like Michael Moore-on, was whenever Bush took a vacation or dared to golf. Moore-on even made a short video entitled, “Bush hasn’t learned you shouldn’t golf while soldiers die!
Odd, Obama golfs and takes trips while soldiers die and the left is no longer offended. The AP should at least be honest in reporting the hypocrisy here. UPDATE 7/17/10: Fox News reports on this scandal: “Scott Stanzel, former deputy press secretary for President George W. Bush, told Fox News, “at a time he could be setting an example…he has chosen not to do that.” Republicans have also hit the president particularly hard for the number of golf outings he’s taken since the beginning of the BP oil spill crisis, especially one round during the first initial days of the spill when the president and first lady escaped for a weekend getaway to Asheville, N.C. Obama’s penchant for golfing — nearly 10 times in the 12 weeks since the April 20th explosion that killed eleven men – has led Republicans to chronicle each time he picks up his clubs. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused the president of being out of touch. The Kentucky Republican told a group of young Republicans during a leadership conference, “scheduling more tee times than Phil Mickelson during the greatest environmental disaster in our nation’s history is out of touch.”
7/16/2010 The Deportation of Financial Jobs Act has passed. The so-called Financial Reform bill “is a vast federal overreach that will drive financial-sector jobs overseas. Before the final vote was even cast, House Republican leader John Boehner called for its repeal.” Fox News:”We’re going to be driving jobs and business overseas with this massive piece of legislation,” said Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga. “I’d love for it to be repealed.” …Only three Republicans voted for it — Maine Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, and Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown. Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, who has said the bill is not tough enough, voted with most Republicans against it.
7/16/2010 The roots of the current financial melt-down can be tied directly back to the administrations of Jimmy Carter and Billy Bob Clinton. During both of their terms, financial institutions were forced to give out loans to people who could not afford the homes they were buying. Obviously any system like that would eventually burst. So now the Socialist-Democrats running the country claim to have passed a bill “to prevent a repeat of the 2008 meltdown that knocked the economy to its knees.” That’s an interesting claim. And it’s not true. As Fox Reports, “Republican opponents also criticized the bill for not addressing mortgage financing giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, whose questionable lending helped start a collapse in the housing market.”
7/16/2010 – Remember Eric Holder describing his own country as a “Nation of Cowards” when it comes to racial dialogue? A caller named Robert on the Rush Limbaugh show today pointed out the hypocrisy in Holder’s words. Holder says you’re a coward, but he won’t even talk about or explain why his Department of Black Justice, under the direction of Thomas Perez in the Civil Rights for Blacks Division, dropped the voter intimidation case it had already won against the New Black Panthers. Holder is The Coward of the Nation for not addressing why Perez and Loretta King made it clear to DOJ attorneys that they won’t be prosecuting cases with black defendants and white victims! National Review Online is calling this a “Racist Scandal.” President Obama not only tolerates this racism, but endorses it with his silence. The nation’s first half-black all-Socialist President has a huge anti-white people chip on his shoulder, despite the fact his mother was white.
7/17/2010 So we traded 10 Russian spies to get 4 people in return? Something is fishy about this. Accuracy in the Media reports, “It is certainly the case that a continuing spy scandal threatened to undermine U.S.-Russia business “opportunities” and “cooperation.” It is also true that there is evidence that the Russian agents targeted the Obama Administration and former Clinton Administration officials. Just before the scandal broke, a $4 billion deal had been announced between Boeing and a Russian firm. During the visit of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to the U.S., Cisco Systems had announced it was going to spend $1 billion in Russia, in part to develop a Moscow version of Silicon Valley. The United States Export-Import Bank had also announced a new deal to underwrite, with U.S. taxpayer dollars, U.S. business exports to Russia. Plus, Obama had submitted a U.S.-Russian nuclear cooperation agreement, backed by powerful business interests, to the U.S. Congress. All of this was clearly in jeopardy if the Russian spy scandal led to additional revelations of Russian spying on the American government and businesses. So the scandal had to go away—and quickly.” — And that’s just what Obama did.

7/17/10 Breitbart TV reports: “Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appeared on local radio in Mobile, AL to assure listeners of the Obama Administration’s concern over the gulf oil spill. She assured the listeners that she had been in close contact with Gov. Barbour. Haley Barbour is governor of Mississippi.”
7/17/2010 Remember all those evil corporate jets that burn fuel made from nasty black oil and help to destroy the earth? The president has one just for his dog!! Michelle Malkin reports: “Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love… Not enough room on Air Force One for a Portuguese water dog and Reggie Love? Obama had to have a smaller jet (G3 Gulfstream, according to the story) serve as Air Force One instead of the 747 the president usually uses because of the size of the airport, but still, it’s a dog — and we’re all supposed to sacrifice in order to get through these tough economic times, right Mr. President? … Um, Mr. President?…” –Thanks to my FB friend Ryte W. for this one!
7/18/10 MicroSoft-NBC & the Associated Democrat Press report, “Election watchdogs have directed Joe Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign to pay the U.S Treasury more than $219,000 to resolve issues caused by sloppy bookkeeping and accepting excessive contributions, including a discounted flight on a private jet.” –ConservativeAmerican.org asks, You mean like an Evil Fat-Cat Corporate Jet?! Back to MSNBC: “The audit was released Friday by the Federal Election Commission. It determined that the Biden campaign accepted an improper corporate contribution in the form of a round-trip flight between New Hampshire and Iowa in June 2007 for three people. The Biden campaign paid GEH Air Transportation $7,911 for the first-class airfare, but regulators say the campaign should have paid the charter rate of $34,800. The FEC also found that the Biden campaign could not document repaying at least $106,000 in donations that were over the limit, and the campaign was ordered to pay the U.S. Treasury more than $85,000 for stale-dated checks.”
7/20/10 The Daily Caller says this is, without a doubt, their biggest story ever: “…The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public – to dissociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?” Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.” Others went further. According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage…”
7/20/10 Right Wing News catches this gaffe by Team Obama: “How bad are Obama and the Democrats policies for unemployment? This bad: Presidents typically invite Americans to appear at Rose Garden press conferences to trumpet their policy successes, but yesterday we saw what may have been a first. President Obama introduced three Americans—an auto worker, a fitness center employee and a woman in real estate—who’ve been out of work so long they underscore the failure of his economic program. Where are his spinmeisters when he really needs them?…” –ConservativeAmerican.org points out he also begged Republicans for help, urging them to extend unemployment benefits and give him more time to fix the economy!
7/20/10 Loretta King and Thomas Perez have some ‘splainin to do today. They’re the two in charge of anti-white discrimination for the Obama Department of Black Justice. After succeeding in dropping charges against the racist New Black Panther party, they failed to reach Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack yesterday before he could fire Ag Dept worker Shirley Sherrod, who admitted on tape in March to discriminating many years ago against a white farmer because of his race. Sherrod is the one seen on video here, telling an NAACP audience that she didn’t help a Georgia farmer as much as she could have because he was white. No word yet on what punishment Vilsack will face for this blatant disregard for Obama policy not to enforce laws in cases where there are white victims and black criminals.
7/21/10 It is amazing and sad to see how far our great nation has retreated since President Obama took office. The Department of Black Justice, headed up by Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder, has racist policies to drop cases where the offender is black and the victim is white. Loretta King and Thomas Perez are in charge of that effort, according to testimony given before a congressional committee. So when Tom Vilsack, Agriculture Secretary, did the right thing in my opinion by firing an employee, the heat was turned up high. The lying NAACP which made up claims of racism by the Tea Party, has now flip-flopped on its condemnation of Ag Worker Shirley Sherrod, caught on tape admitting her previous racism. They now say Sherrod is the victim because the story she was telling was about how she came to realize that racism is wrong and that she should focus instead on poverty regardless of skin color. That may be true. Shirley could be the nicest woman on the planet today. I don’t know her. What I do believe is that this “conversion” is NOT shown on the Breitbart video. We demonstrate clearly in this report why and how this claim of “conversion” is hard to believe. Team Obama was upset yesterday when the narrative was that Fox News and Andrew Breitbart told the truth, found a racist employee and she was canned. Team Obama can’t just sit by and let Fox News be correct about something! So the damage control team moved into high gear. Wait, watch the tape again, they said… this was all taken out of context, they claimed! I’m just saying for a “born again” defender of poverty, her behavior on the tape in March of this year is quite odd to say the least! Sherrod seems to chuckle and she smiles about a time she says was 20+ years ago when she purposefully used racism to discriminate against a white farmer. That is her conversion?! She thinks it is funny?! Something to smile about? The Associated Democrat Press reports, “An embarrassed White House apologized on Wednesday to a black Agriculture Department employee who was ousted for her remarks about race, saying the administration did not know all the facts when she was fired.White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called the dismissal of Shirley Sherrod an injustice and a mistake and said he was apologizing for the “entire administration.” He said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was trying to reach her to extend an apology.”I accept the apology,” Sherrod said on CNN after watching Gibbs talk to reporters at a televised briefing. But she said the apology took too long and she wasn’t sure if she wanted her job back.”I just don’t know at this point, I don’t know,” she said, adding that she would be surprised if Vilsack offered her the job.Gibbs said Obama had been briefed as the situation developed.”He talked about the fact that a disservice had been done, an injustice had happened and, because the facts had changed, a review of the decision based on those facts should be taken,” Gibbs said.” — ConservativeAmerican.org believes one ijustice here is how the media, now fully in bed with the Obama administration, just switches the story on a dime because the NAACP leader and the President asked them too. Watch the tape! See what you think. Now she says she accepts the apology, but it took too long?! That’s ridiculous! This was a very speedy flip-flop! This White House does seem hell-bent to make sure racism against whites by blacks is TOLERATED. It’s wrong. The White House is wrong. The President is wrong. The NAACP is wrong (again). The media is wrong to go along with all of this. When will the NAACP apologize to the tea party? When will the President apologize to the Tea Party? This item has been revised in an attempt to go overboard in being fair to Shirley Sherrod.
7/21/10 Fox News: “Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Wednesday he has offered to rehire the civil servant he forced to resign two days ago over her comments about race that were taken out of context in a brief video clip. Vilsack said he offered Shirley Sherrod, who was the state director of rural development in Georgia, a unique new position at the agency but wouldn’t go into details. Sherrod told The Associated Press she is considering the offer. “I accept full responsibility with regret,” Vilsack said at a news conference. “She’s been put through hell. I could have and should have done a better job.” Vilsack said he extended his “profound apologies” to Sherrod and added that the experience has been a “teachable moment for me, a teachable moment for all of us.” Vilsack also emphasized that the White House applied no pressure to his decision to sack Sherrod.” — ConservativeAmerican.org says oh yes, mustn’t forget to “emphasize” that Obama had nothing to do with this… yeah, right.
7/27/10 From Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin’s site: “The president’s family is feeling a hit like most Americans these days: He says he and first lady Michelle Obama took a hit like everybody else when the economy nearly collapsed, telling ABC that a college fund for daughters Malia and Sasha has gone “up and down” with the stock market. Obama says the first couple is “not that far removed from what most Americans are going through.” Not far removed, but far enough so that the First Lady can reserve 30 rooms at a five-star hotel in Spain next month: Michelle Obama has reserved about 30 rooms for herself and her daughter, their friends and bodyguards at a five-star hotel in Benahavis near Marbella, hotel sources said. Not far removed, but far enough to spend ten days on Martha’s Vineyard next month…”
7/30/10 The Independent Rage blogspot reports, “As hyped by such websites as Gawker.com over the past day (link at bottom), Obama’s appearance on The View yesterday included his claim of ignorance as to Jersey Shore star Snooki. “I don’t know who that is,” crowed his majesty. The only problem: Two months ago at the White House Hollywood (errrr, “Press Correspondents”) Dinner, Obama showed off that wonderfully wry wit of his, quipping: “It [the provision] reads, ‘The following individuals shall be excluded from indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.” Obama’s words, not mine. Now, I’m sure many of you would say, “politicians tell fibs and lies all the time — that’s just what they do.” And that would be correct. But excuse me for holding the President of the United States to just a little higher standard than your typical politician…”
7/30/10 The American Conservative: ” You see, dropping bombs and occupying countries for years could never incite hatred—but actually reporting the truth about the war could spark a jihadist revolution, as if jihadists don’t already know what’s going on in their own backyard, something an organization like Wikileaks simply believes everyone else should know about too. Salon.com’s Glenn Greenwald has it right: “WikiLeaks has yet again proven itself to be one of the most valuable and important organizations in the world… there is no valid justification for having kept most of these documents a secret. But that’s what our National Security State does reflexively: it hides itself behind an essentially absolute wall of secrecy to ensure that the citizenry remains largely ignorant of what it is really doing.” The New Yorker’s Amy Davidson writes, “What does it mean to tell the truth about a war? Is it a lie, technically speaking, for the Administration to say that it has faith in Hamid Karzai’s government and regards him as a legitimate leader—or is it just absurd? Is it a lie to say that we have a plan for Afghanistan that makes any sense at all? If you put it that way, each of the WikiLeaks documents… is a pixel in a picture that does, indeed, contradict official accounts of the war, and rather drastically so.”
7/30/10 NY Times: “It is just a technical matter, the Obama administration says: We just need to make a slight change in a law to make clear that we have the right to see the names of anyone’s e-mail correspondents and their Web browsing history without the messy complication of asking a judge for permission. It is far more than a technical change. The administration’s request, reported Thursday in The Washington Post, is an unnecessary and disappointing step backward toward more intrusive surveillance from a president who promised something very different during the 2008 campaign… President Obama campaigned for office on an explicit promise to rein in these abuses. “There is no reason we cannot fight terrorism while maintaining our civil liberties,” his campaign wrote in a 2008 position paper. “As president, Barack Obama would revisit the Patriot Act to ensure that there is real and robust oversight of tools like National Security Letters, sneak-and-peek searches, and the use of the material witness provision.” Where is the “robust oversight” that voters were promised?”
8/1/10 From brother in pain, Tom in Paine: “Obama said that the choices he faced at the time were to let the auto industry go into “liquidation” — that was the word he used — “liquidation” and he used it a number of times — or give them bailout money. And he talked about how many more hundreds of thousands of jobs would have been lost had the auto industry been forced into “liquidation”. When Obama used the word “liquidation” he knew he was pulling a bait and switch and he knew what he was doing. And it was a calculated lie. He chose a word that he was sure no one would catch and if they did he was sure he could wriggle out of it… there was never a discussion or even the possibility of GM, Ford or Chrysler going into “liquidation”. Never. It never would have happened. Obama was just using a word he knew was a false characterization the way a shady used car salesman tries to con you into a deal that’s not good for you. The whole point of the bailout at the time as presented by the CEO of GM and Chrysler ( Ford didnt need bailout money) was to save GM and Chrysler from filing for bankruptcy. Not liquidation. Liquidation was never discussed, brought up, (and) was (never even )an option or a possibility.”
8/1/10 Fox News: “Sen. David Vitter, R-La., on Sunday said he and his colleagues are still looking for answers on whether the administration has seriously considered mass legalization for illegal immigrants, after an administration memo surfaced outlining ways to grant legalization without going through Congress. The draft memo, first obtained by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley’s office from the U.S. Customs & Immigration Services, outlines ways the administration was exploring to legalize swaths of illegal immigrants “in the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” The memo describes how to, “reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization.” Several Republican senators wrote a letter to President Obama regarding the memo, and they are waiting for a response.”
8/1/10 As noted by an observer at the Pacific Sun, ” Last May when obama met with Governor Brewer of Arizona he promised federal troops to the border and team from the White House to coordinate efforts to secure Arizona’s less than secure border. About 45 day later, not the two weeks that were promised, obama stated that he would be sending not the 6,000 federal troops which were requested but 524. The troops were to be in position by August 1st. Not all 524 but a ramp up to the 524 by October, 2010. Today it was announced that the troops would begin arriving in late September or early October. Once again, not the 6,000, but a few of the 524!”
8/3/10 ABCDEmocrat NEWS: Republicans “allege” Tons of Stimulus Waste! This is why Limbaugh called it a Porkulus
8/4/10 The latest stop on the Obama Apology tour comes to us from Fox News: “The son of the U.S. Air Force pilot who dropped the first atomic bomb in the history of warfare says the Obama administration’s decision to send a U.S. delegation to a ceremony in Japan to mark the 65th anniversary of the attack on Hiroshima is an “unsaid apology” and appears to be an attempt to “rewrite history.” James Tibbets, son of Brig. Gen. Paul W. Tibbets, Jr., says Friday’s visit to Hiroshima by U.S. Ambassador John Roos is an act of contrition that his late father would never have approved. “It’s an unsaid apology,” Tibbets, 66, told FoxNews.com from his home in Georgiana, Ala. “Why wouldn’t it be? Why would [Roos] go? It doesn’t make any sense.”
8/4/10 President Obama issued a virtually unnoticed gaffe on The View the other day. If a white person had said this, it would be national news, but the Bamster gets a free ride. From the Alabama Fox Enterprises blog: “President Obama waded into the national race debate in an unlikely setting and with an unusual choice of words: telling daytime talk show hosts that African-Americans are “sort of a mongrel people.” The president appeared on ABC’s morning talk show “The View” Thursday, where he talked about the forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, his experience with race and his roots. When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: “We are sort of a mongrel people. I mean we’re all kinds of mixed up…”
8/4/10 We have pointed out many times on this list the Obama flip-flops and lies related to the Iraq war. Website Jumping in Pools adds another one to the list with this video. They play an Obama 2007 video where he says there is nothing we can do to resolve the civil war in Iraq. Next they show a 2009 video of him saying how the troops have done a great job in resolving things for the people of Iraq. As for when to get out of Iraq, we have been all over that one.
8/4/10 From the Washington Times and Common Sense Junction: “President Obama’s choice to be the government’s chief budget officer received a bonus of more than $900,000 from Citigroup Inc. last year — after the Wall Street firm for which he worked received a massive taxpayer bailout. The money was paid to Jacob Lew in January 2009, about two weeks before he joined the State Department as deputy secretary of state, according to a newly filed ethics form. The payout came on top of the already hefty $1.1 million Citigroup compensation package for 2008 that he reported last year.”—ConservativeAmerican.org remembers the Obama administration pretending to be very upset about all of these outrageous bonuses paid to fat-cat executives. I guess it’s okay when it goes to one of Obama’s pals. So much for any kind of change anyone can believe in!
8/4/10 The Business and Media Institute is surprised (so are we!) that Couric-BS News would point out an Obama Flip-Flop: “It is rare that the network news media expose President Barack Obama’s hypocrisy on any point, which is why Mark Knoller’s CBS story on July 22 was so enlightening. Covering Obama’s July 22 signing of a bill “restoring” jobless benefits to roughly 2.5 million Americans who have been unemployed for more than 26 weeks, Knoller wrote that Obama “changes tune on paying for unemployment benefits extension.” Many in the news media lauded this “relief” bill and vilified conservatives trying to block its passage. The GOP filibuster was based on the idea that the $34 billion should be paid for, rather than added to the deficit. With a $3.8 trillion budget, they reasoned that something ought to be cut out to pay for the bill. What CBS surprisingly reported is that in November 2009 Obama agreed with paying for an extension of jobless benefits. “Now, it’s important to note that the bill I signed will not add to our deficit. It is fully paid for, and so it is fiscally responsible,” Obama said on Nov. 6, 2009. Knoller’s response: “So eight months ago, he said paying for the benefits was the right thing to do, but now he sees no need to do so.”
8/4/10 Website Aisha catches this Bamster Flip-Flop: “They day after 96,000 classified documents were leaked to the WikiLeaks website, the Obama Administration stated it was not a big deal, as the items were not “top secret” but “secret.” However, days later they’ve flip flopped, stating the WikiLeaks, 96,000 page government leak is very serious, as it contains operatives names, U.S. state secrets and national security methods, detailing how the government collects confidential data.”
8/5/10 Nancy Pelosi is calling congress back to pass a bailout for the Socialist Democrat teacher’s union that she claims will save 100,000 votes… er, uh… jobs.
Malini Wilkes at Fox News reports today that the bill will be paid for through tax increases and spending cuts. Yeah right. The spending cuts, she reported, include cutting Food Stamps starting in 2014! So to all of the poor people who vote for Socialist-Democrats because you think they stand for you, wake up and smell the air… you can’t smell the coffee because you won’t be able to buy it anymore… at least not with Food Stamps!
8/5/10 The Wall Street Journal: “One irony of the tax increase that arrives on January 1 is that the it will hit residents of high-income, Democratic-leaning states like California, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York the hardest. This is a problem for pro-tax Democrats. Enter New York Representative Jerrold Nadler, who wants to exempt his own six-figure constituents from the tax hike he supports. Mr. Nadler’s bill would “require the IRS to adjust tax brackets proportionally in regions where the average cost of living is higher than the national average.” In other words, the various tax brackets would apply to residents in certain regions at higher income levels versus other parts of the country. A family with an income of $50,000 or even $1 million in Manhattan would pay less federal income tax than a family with the same earnings in Omaha. The bill is called the Tax Equity Act, but a more accurate title would be the Blue State Tax Preference Act…”
8/5/10 Couric-BS News reports, “Christina Romer, one of President Obama’s most pivotal economic advisers, is resigning, a change that comes as the White House fights to show signs of clear economic gains to a hurting nation. Romer, the head of the Council of Economic Advisers, announced her resignation on Thursday. It takes effect Sept. 3. She will return to her job as a professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley. The White House cast the decision as an unsurprising one driven by family reasons; in a statement, Mr. Obama said Romer has long wanted to return to California, where her son will be starting high school in the fall.” — ConservativeAmerican.org says, Oh yeah… that makes sense. She took the job knowing her son would be starting high school and she intended to quit all along. Wait… come to think of it… that doesn’t make any sense at all! The Great and Powerful Bamster is worried about the economy and Romer was shown the door. That makes more sense. BTW, the economy would have to add 2.5-Million jobs just to get back to Romer’s promised 8% unemployment rate. She’s the one who promised the Porkulus bill would keep unemployment below 8%.
8/5/10 Even the liberal NY Times reported, “he suggested that his adversaries were virtually un-American in standing against his policies. “I wish they were standing here today and saw what I see,” he told an audience of cheering workers at a Ford Motor Co. plant here in his hometown. “I wish they could see the pride you take in building these great cars, American-made cars. And my message to them is: Don’t bet against the American worker; don’t lose faith in the American people; don’t lose faith in American industry. We are coming back.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes the obvious problem here: Ford didn’t take your stupid bailout, Mr. President. They used good ‘ol American hard work to make things happen. They didn’t rely on the government! Keyboard Militia called it an “Uncomfy Moment” when Ford workers broke into thunderous applause after the President noted the company did not need the government bailout to succeed! Hey Ford workers, America is applauding as well.
8/5/10 Conservative American Andrea Tantaros has followed our lead in comparing Michelle Obama to Marie Antoinette and her famous, “Let them eat cake!” line. On August 4th, we wrote…”President Obama will turn 49 alone. Poor guy. His wife and kids are off in some evil corporate jet, destroying the ozone layer, trotting around the world. Michelle sure loves her new lifestyle of the rich and famous. As for the rest of America, worried about the economy, she must think, “Let them eat cake.” The brilliant Tantaros wrote in her op ed on August 5th…”For a couple that has sharply criticized former President George W. Bush so widely, they could stand to follow his example for once and select a more low-key locale, as Bush regularly did in his Texas vacations. Instead, Michelle Obama seems more like a modern-day Marie Antoinette – the French queen who spent extravagantly on clothes and jewels without a thought for her subjects’ plight – than an average mother of two….” More here.
8/9/10 After the Team-Obama-mishandled Gulf Oil Spill, Queen Michelle Obama stopped in to encourage tourism and proclaimed, “Everyone should come here!” Everyone except her, apparently. She trots off to Spain with a huge group enjoying fancy hotels, fine food and the best life has to offer, while Americans are left home to eat cake and wonder about her hypocrisy.
The Blog Prof has this funny artwork on its site and the scoop from the Sun Times: “From the Chicago Sun-Times via drudge: Inside story of Michelle’s trip. Do note that writer Lynn Sweet is an Obamunist, but perhaps in trying to cover up the lavishness of the vacation with taxpayer money she might have done better not including this: ‘A White House source told me that Blanchard’s father passed away and Mrs. Obama was not able to make the funeral at the beginning of July. Blanchard had promised her daughter she would take her to Spain for her birthday. She asked Mrs. Obama and Sasha to come with. (Malia is at overnight camp.)”She felt it was important as a dear friend to do this,” I was told.’ (wrote Sun Times writer Lynn Sweet).
8/11/10 The Wall Street Journal Editorial Staff notes, “Mr. Obama rushed to sign the bill Tuesday, violating his campaign pledge to give the public five days to read legislation online. As we say, the only way for voters to stop such fiscal abuse is to run this crowd out of town.”
8/11/10 “The White House has promoted the bill as emergency assistance for strained state budgets. But this unique brand of therapy drives states to spend more, not less. The “assistance” is so expensive that several governors were begging for relief even before Mr. Obama signed it into law,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Specifically, the bill stipulates that federal funds must supplement, not replace, state spending on education. Also, in each state, next year’s spending on elementary and secondary education as a percentage of total state revenues must be equal to or greater than the previous year’s level. Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi did the math and figured out his state will be worse off. Mr. Barbour says the bill will force his state “to rewrite its current year [fiscal 2011] budget. Preliminary estimates of the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration show that we will now have to spend between $50-100 million of state funds—funds that must be taken away from public safety, human services, mental health and other state priorities and given to education—in order for an additional $98 million of federal funds to be granted to education. There is no justification for the federal government hijacking state budgets, but that is exactly what Congress has done.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes: So much for things being all about the children! This is nothing more than a way to give taxpayer money to democrat-party-run teacher’s unions who will then give the money back to help keep these Pro-Regressive Socialists in power!
8/11/10 The Wall Street Journal Editorial Staff notes, “This is a form of punishment because the Beltway crowd believes the Lone Star State didn’t spend enough of its 2009 stimulus money. Apparently Texas politicians have been clinging to the quaint notion that the government should try to live within its means. Texans also seem to have an old-fashioned appreciation for the rule of law. On Friday, 22 GOP Members of the state’s Congressional delegation sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “This provision would have Texas violate her own State Constitution,” they wrote. “The Texas Legislature has sole authority to determine State appropriations. Moreover, one Legislature cannot bind a future Legislature. Requiring the State to assure that a future Texas Legislature would commit to spend funds in accordance with these provisions would violate the Texas Constitution.”
8/11/10 The Wall Street Journal: “According to research by Eric Hanushek of Stanford University, student enrollment grew by 22% from 1990 to 2007, but teacher employment grew by 41%. Since 2000, enrollment has grown by 5% but teacher employment by 10%. The unions themselves could have prevented some layoffs had they been willing to adjust their rich benefits. In Milwaukee, for example, nearly all of the 500 teacher layoffs announced earlier this year could have been avoided if the unions had agreed to change health plans that cost $23,000 per teacher per year for family coverage. They could have accepted a still-rich $17,000 plan. The unions chose the layoffs, betting (correctly) that Democrats in Washington would come to their rescue.”
8/11/10 When signing the Teacher bailout bill, the President made the outrageous claim that the job will help firefighters and policemen. He makes a great big leap of a stretch to come up with that. He says the states can use the money they’ll be “saving,” since they are getting this new federal money pouring in from the teacher bailout, to hire more firefighters and first-responders! The problem… no, it’s not a problem it’s a lie… The lie comes in because the teacher bailout actually COSTS states MORE money and does not save them any money according to the Wall Street Journal: “… this unique brand of therapy drives states to spend more, not less.”
8/11/10 “…this teacher bailout also amounts to a huge contribution by Democrats to their own election campaigns. The National Right to Work Committee estimates that two of every three teachers belong to unions. The average union dues payment varies, but a reasonable estimate is that between 1% and 1.5% of teacher salaries goes to dues. The National Education Association and other unions will thus get as much as $100 million in additional dues from this bill, much of which will flow immediately to endangered Democratic candidates in competitive House and Senate races this year.”
8/14/10 Andrew McCarthy writes at the National Review: “The financial jihad has now achieved its greatest coup so far: It has co-opted the U.S. government as a partner. In fact, if you would like to see a contributor to the jihad, have a look in the mirror. Thanks to the Obama administration, every one of us is complicit. The bailout bonanza made each of us an owner of American Insurance Group (AIG). Under the stewardship of its real CEO, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, AIG proudly runs the world’s most lavishly funded sharia-compliant insurance business — and it is desperately trying to convince a federal court in Michigan that no one should have a problem with that…”
8/15/10 After taking heat for his support Friday of building a Cordoba Victory Mosque at Ground Zero, Barack Hugo Obama has had to do a speedy flip flop! First the President said “But Let me be clear…” Whenever you hear President Obama say, “Let me be clear,” that’s your que to pay attention because the phrase that follows will be something he will later change his mind on. “I believe that Muslims have the right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. And that includes, that includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan.” Yep. That’s pretty “clear.” He supports their “right” (no such right exists, of course… plans for religious facilities can be turned down for any number of legal reasons… they have the right to ask if they can build it, not the right to build it) to build a Cordoba Victory Mosque at Ground Zero in New York. However, as ABCDEmocrat News reports,… “President Obama seemed to dial back today he is not sure it’s a good idea. He said he was not commenting on the “wisdom” of the plan…”
8/17/10 Missouri Political News Service reports, “President Obama visited a Wisconsin battery manufacturer yesterday that’s taking part in a $1.3 million “Recovery Act State Energy Program loan;” in other words, it’s being funded by money from the President’s $862 billion stimulus bill. Though Obama will be touting it as “saving or creating” jobs, the stimulus has continually fallen short of the promises made by the White House and Democrats in Congress about it. The Wall Street Journal reported yesrday, “The Obama administration has paid out less than a third of the nearly $230 billion allocated to big infrastructure projects in the economic-stimulus program. . . . Administration officials said when pushing for the program that the money would target projects that could create jobs quickly. So far, $182 billion of the infrastructure money has been awarded, though the government has paid out only $66 billion of the total.” Further, the WSJ notes, “The biggest projects have been the slowest to start. None of the $17.5 billion for incentive payments for doctors and hospitals to start using electronic health records has been spent yet, because rules for payment were finalized only in July. A few recipients of $7.2 billion in grants allocated to the expansion of broadband Internet services have started laying cables, but the rest are still busy with pre-construction work, such as environmental assessments, local approvals to attach fiber to utility poles, permits for rights of way and hiring subcontractors.”
8/17/10 The Front Porch Republic website catches this one: “On Wednesday, August 11, President Obama marked the commencement of Ramadan,… After praising Islam as a source of wisdom and force for progress, the president added the following: “in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.” This statement is not true in any meaningful sense. If the president’s “America” here signifies a mere geographic location and the people who have inhabited it, then of course Islam has not always been a part of it. Islam was no part of the experience of the Native Americans who dwelt here before the arrival of European settlers. The claim is no less transparently false if “America” is understood as a political community, the nation established by the men who threw off British imperial rule and who established the Constitution. Those Americans were overwhelmingly protestant Christians. Islam was no part of their America, except to the extent that they were aware of it as something they regarded as utterly alien…”
8/17/10 Thanks to the Front Porch Republic website for also catching this one. It is written by Carson Holloway, who is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Nebraska at Omaha: “(OBAMA:)American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.”…(HOLLOWAY) Muslims now make up less than one percent of the American population. Thus one cannot seriously accept the president’s claim that “American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.” An extraordinary contribution – need one say this? – must go beyond what is ordinary. Yet Muslims clearly have not been part of America long enough in sufficiently significant numbers to make contributions that could equal those of Christians or even of a long-established minority such as America’s Jewish population. Perhaps one could here defend the president by claiming that he is referring to American Muslims as individuals, not as a group. No doubt many individual American Muslims have in fact made extraordinary contributions to American society. But if this was the president’s meaning, then his statement is not a direct falsehood but a trivial truth about individual achievements deployed in such a way as to encourage a false conclusion about a group’s social significance….”
8/23/10 From the Texas Tea Party PAC: “the president has used taxpayer dollars to finance “a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign” made up of
“inappropriate and sometimes unlawful public relations and propaganda
initiatives.” Often, this involves “covert propaganda,” in which
officials ask others to repeat White House talking points without
mentioning their connection to the president… Sally Kohn wrote in The Huffington Post yesterday that she attended a May 12, 2009, meeting in which multiple Obama administration officials asked the radical Left to promote its legislative agenda… Kohn revealed yesterday that this meeting was the beginning, not the end, of the radical Left’s collusion with Obama. “The White House convened a weekly meeting called ‘Common Purpose’ at which DC progressive organizations were invited,” she wrote. At these Common Purpose meetings, “the White House dictated its agenda and appealed to the professional left for back-up.”
In other words, Obama administration officials, led by Valerie Jarrett, have directed a year-long covert propaganda campaign from the White House aimed at securing support for its agenda from the most
radical elements of the political spectrum.”
8/24/10 From the great website, “Yid with Lid”: “Progressive Christian Guru/Obama Advisor Jim Wallis Admits Lie About George Soros Funding – There is an old saying that politics make strange bedfellows. A great example of this is seen in the union of a George Soros, Jewish born billionaire who collaborated with the Nazis and was convicted of insider trading, funding the organization of Jim Wallis, Christian writer and political activist, founder and editor of Sojourners magazine, leader of the Progressive evangelical movement, Obama adviser and advocate for “social justice.” …the “man of God”, Walis lied about the Soros funding claiming that Olasky was trying to imitate Glenn Beck: “It’s not hyperbole or overstatement to say that Glenn Beck lies for a living. I’m sad to see Marvin Olasky doing the same thing. No, we don’t receive money from Soros. Given the financial crisis of nonprofits, maybe Marvin should call Soros and ask him to send us money. So, no, we don’t receive money from George Soros….”
8/24/10 From Rush the Magic Hero… “The expiration date on this one has arrived. That’s the speech that Joe Wilson shouted “You lie,” when Obama’s out there talking about how his health care plan is gonna permanently reduce the deficit, lower health care costs, and now the Democrats say, “Don’t say it.” Because, see, Obamacare would have had a sunset provision locked in if it did not claim to reduce the deficit. That’s some newfangled law that they’ve had in the budget requirements for a while. The tax cuts have to sunset because the CBO said they wouldn’t reduce the deficit. If it doesn’t reduce the deficit, then it’s gotta be ended at some point. So they had to say that health care was gonna reduce the deficit in order to make it permanent. Folks, we were lied to, scammed. This is fraud and deceit, and it’s admission now by the Democrats with this slide show is profound. To get Obamacare through the reconciliation — you remember all of this? To get Obamacare through the reconciliation process without a sunset provision, the CBO claimed it would reduce the deficit by $118 billion. Remember they remember massaging and manipulating this to say it was never going to cost more than a trillion because that’s what the Iraq war had cost and the regime was out there saying, “Oh, health care is going to cost less than the Iraq war.” It was all lies, and Joe Wilson shouted that, and look what happened to him. So now we have… It’s unconscionable. This entire regime has been a lie. It is an ongoing lie…”
8/24/10 From the Campaign for Liberty: “Whatever He’s Smoking, Please Give Me Some! Obama and the Social Security Lie –
“Social Security is not in crisis. We’re going to have to make some modest adjustments in order to strengthen it. There are some fairly modest changes that could be made without resorting to any newfangled schemes that would continue Social Security for another 75 years, where everybody would get the benefits they deserve.” -Barack Obama, Aug. 18, 2010 …Holy crap, where do I start? Now that I’ve taken my jaw off the floor, I can write my thoughts on this bombshell delivered by President Obama yesterday. You know, it’s one thing when someone says something wrong simply because they had incorrect information. But, it is quite another when someone just outright lies to your face. Or maybe he’s just high. If that’s the case, I’ll have what he’s having. That stuff must be good. Here’s the thing…of all the people in these United States, Generation X is going to get hit the HARDEST of anyone when it comes to the Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. If no changes are made to the current Social Security program, most estimates say it will be out of funds in 2037, which is great news for me. I will be 60. Currently, there are about 3.2 workers for every recipient. But, the boomers are retiring by the thousands each month, and that number will probably be more like 2 workers for every recipient in as little as 25 years. … – ConservativeAmerican.org notes: If the Campaign has the quote right, read it again. Obama’s comments about Social Security are bizarre and confused. He says he doesn’t want “any newfangled schemes” because, he says, “that would continue Social Security for another 75 years, where everybody would get the benefits they deserve.” Wait… getting the benefits they deserve is a newfangled scheme??!! Teleprompter goofing up again?
8/26/10 Conservative American Mark Levin says a new memo from Team Obama proves it has no desire to enforce immigration laws…
8/26/10 As Newsmax reports, so much for keeping your plan! “A Medicare plan to try to make it simpler for consumers to pick drug coverage could force 3 million seniors to switch plans next year even if they don’t want to, says an independent analysis. That risks undercutting President Barack Obama’s promise that people can keep their health plans if they like them. And it could be an unwelcome surprise for many seniors who hadn’t intended to make a change during Medicare’s open enrollment season this fall…”
8/28/10 Cliff Kincaid reports, “70 Christian leaders and denominational heads have signed a letter saying that questions about the religious philosophy of the President of the United States should be ignored and suppressed by the major media. The letter demands that the media “offer no further support or airtime to those who misrepresent and call into question the President’s Christian faith.” The apparent initiator of the letter is Obama associate Jim Wallis of the Sojourners group, a group funded by atheist George Soros.” — Conservative American.org asks why in America a political party is trying to supress questions about an issue the President raised?
8/28/10 Atlas Shrugs has the details, “Obama is dropping the case against the Cole bombing, a jihadist act of war. In October 2000, the Cole was attacked by Muslim terrorists in a homicide attack in the Yemeni post of Aden. Seventeen sailors were killed and thirty-nine were injured, and the ship was damaged. Today we hear they are dropping the case. Another big fat lie, to what end? To advance what agenda? Whose interests? Certainly it’s not America’s.” Andrew McCarthy adds, ” It’s a sleepy Friday in late August, the president is on another vacation, Congress is out of town, no one is paying much attention. What better time for the Obama administration to pull the plug, once again, on military commissions? This time, it has halted the case of top al-Qaeda operative Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who was to be prosecuted by a military court for the Cole bombing… None of this is terribly surprising. Prosecuting the Cole case by military commission sticks in the Left’s craw because it shows the incoherence of the Obama/Holder position. They want to treat the war like a crime and endow our enemies with all the rights and advantages of civilian courts; yet, they went military in the Cole case, despite the fact that there is a pending Justice Department civilian indictment addressing that attack.”
8/28/10 The uber-left H.R. Huff-n-Stuffington Post says, “..it’s quite possible, even likely, that Obama lied about his religious beliefs in order to be elected.” That’s what the Pro-regressive left is saying, not us!! They point to a few Obama quotes to help make the case. (OBAMA): “Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is okay, and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith. Or should we just stick with the Sermon on the Mount, a passage that is so radical that it is doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application?” Those are some harsh criticism of Christianity from a man the White House says is “obviously” a Christian. Ali A. Rizvi has other quotes in his Huffpo piece from the Great Obama: “I was not raised in a religious household… My maternal grandparents, who hailed from Kansas, had been steeped in Baptist and Methodist teachings as children, but religious faith never really took root in their hearts.” And there’s more: “(OBAMA) .. [I]t was a phenomenon to be treated with a suitable respect, but with a suitable detachment as well… [A]lthough my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist, thinking religion to be so much superstition.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes that 1 in 5 Americans think Obama is a Muslim. That upsets at least one Chicago preacher who just can’t seem to fathom why anyone could think Obama was not a Christian! To him we say, the President surely doesn’t help himself with his on-going world Hug-an-Islamist tour!
8/30/10 The President has his own wacky right-wing conspiracy theory! Kiss-up Brian Williams, from the Obama 2012 campaign, conducted a mock interview with Obama today…
8/31/10 President Barack Obama deliberately mislead the American people (AGAIN) tonight by stating that we spent “a trillion dollars on war.” The speech was about Iraq. He was talking about Iraq. He knows that it was $709-billion spent on the Iraq war, not a trillion. But, by stating the money was spent “on war” he implies on the Iraq war, without actually saying that. He can say he meant that much was spent on both wars.
8/31/10 The President also lead the American people toward a false conclusion by suggesting that Iraq war spending took money away from domestic use which could have helped the economy. This is all funny money. We don’t have this money. We just print more and borrow more. It is not correct to assume that if the Iraq war did not happen, that congress would have instead created a $709-billion “stimulus” for the economy again. It’s quite a stretch. But that’s how the President deals with things; by stretching the truth, tossing in lies, and misleading the American public.
8/31/10 Along the same lines as the preceding entry, the President also wants you to believe that war spending hurt the economy. Economists generally agree that this is not true. War spending creates jobs and stimulates economies. The $709-billion spent on the war did more for the economy and creating jobs than the $888-billion Socialist-Democrat Porkulus Bill! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying war should be used just to create jobs. I’m merely pointing out the President again chose on purpose to ignore certain realities and try to lead the American people down a false road to Obamatopia!
8/31/10 Even the MSM (except for the partisan joke site called “Politifact”) recognizes this claim is simply untrue. Combat brigades remain in Iraq. The “last” combat brigade that he claimed left the country the other day, was just one of many. Stryker Combat Brigades remain in Iraq. He merely changed the name to call them “Advise and Assist” Brigades. Changing a name of something, contrary to the President’s way of thinking, does not change what the thing is. He has tried this with the Overseas Contingency Operation (War on Terror). Even ABCDemocrat News had to acknowledge this is nothing more than a word-play! If ABC can get it, why is Politifact so wrong on this one? The soldiers even laugh when asked if the combat mission is over or if they are no longer combat troops!!
8/31/10 President Barack Obama infamously said he is not comfortable with the word “Victory” used in relation to war and that it conjures up negative images in his mind of the Japanese surrendering to us after World War II. So, it’s not a complete surprise that he merely announced that one military operation had ended and it was time to turn a page. Never before has an American president ended a war we won without claiming that we had victory. This is part of his whole “president of the world” belief that no one nation should be above another. It’s a disgrace to have a president like that and it dishonors the American soldiers, many of whom gave their lives in this war, not to claim victory. History will treat him harshly for this foolish error.
8/31/10 While conducting his own troop surges in Afghanistan, with Bush’s general in charge and Bush’s defense secretary in place, President Obama still refused to acknowledge he was wrong about the troop surge that resulted in victory in Iraq. He knows he was wrong, as he is using the strategy himself now. Like a spoiled little child, he just won’t admit it.
8/31/10 A Stryker Combat Brigade in Iraq on August 31st has a new name on September 1st: Advise & Assist Brigade. It’s the same people, in the same uniforms, driving the same vehicles and firing the same weapons as the day before. The president deliberately let the American people think that our role in any combat operation in Iraq is over. “It’s time to turn the page.” Only it’s not actually true. Our combat soldiers that remain in Iraq are no longer allowed to go on combat missions UNLESS requested and accompanied by Iraqi forces! So all they have to do is say “C’mon!” and we’re in. All recent combat missions already included Iraqi forces and were conducted with the involvement of Iraqi armed forces leadership. This has changed only the minor detail that the Iraqi’s now have to say “please” first. We’re still there. There still will be combat involving U.S. Soldiers. Can’t quite flip that page yet, Mr. President. Oh, and that deal you mentioned to get all troops out by the end of 2011… that was worked out by your predecessor George W. Bush.
8/31/10 The President has changed his promises regarding Iraq numerous times. First he said he’d get all troops out, then he adjusted it to say just the combat troops would leave. Then he adjusted it again by leaving some 50,000 combat troops in place and just changing what he calls them. He said he’d have them out right away and have a war council meeting his day in office. He didn’t bother with either. Then he promised to have them out in 16-months, then 19-months. Last night he adjusted the bar on his promise again stating, “The combat mission is over. This was my pledge.” Uhm, no it wasn’t! He didn’t pledge to merely end a “combat mission” by changing its name. He said he’d get all troops out and bring them home. He is so pompous that he addresses the nation to say he actually lived up to a promise (that would be earth-shattering news)… a promise he did NOT live up to!
8/31/10 The President continues to seem confused about wars and soldiers. He said our nation now can focus on Afghanistan (but not for victory, mind you, that wouldn’t be fair to the “moderate Taliban!”). So we’re going to stay and we’re going to fight hard. Then in the next breath he said “Make no mistake…” (whenever he says that or “Let me be clear” it is followed by a lie) we are getting out of Afghanistan and we WILL start leaving a year from now. One of his own generals the other day just said statements like this are empowering our enemy! So, he makes them again?! Does he want us to WIN VICTORY in Afghanistan? Or just come home?
Radio Talk Show Host Jay Weber said President Obama’s speech was full of “more excuse making.” Weber hosts a conservative radio show in Milwaukee on 1130AM WISN. Weber said its almost as though Obama viewed the Iraq war as a distraction… not to worry though, now that that’s behind him Obama can focus on the economy. Wait. You mean he’ll only start focusing on the economy NOW?! Obama promised in January he would make the economy his top priority but then instead made the Obamacare Nightmare his top priority. The president promised the Stimulus would add 3-million jobs. Instead, we lost that many. So his third promise to focus on economic issues holds little weight.
On 9/4/11, ConservativeAmerican.org discontinued the list. It was simply too much work to keep up with all of the Team Obama lies and broken promises. And, the majority of voters were not even willing to listen to the truth about Obama. As history taught us, President Obama was easily reelected in 2012. People still believed the “If you like you plan, you can keep it” lie. Only after the President broke that promise, one that impacted tens of millions of Americans, did citizens start to wake up and realize who the REAL Barack Obama is. This list is presented to all of those now willing to look into Obama’s past.
