Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint
We’re keeping track of all the appointment scandals for you, former Senator DeMint! [DeMint now is President of the Heritage Foundation.]

The list below contains all of the Obama Administration mistakes, blunders, broken promises, flip flops, gaffes, lies, etc. That’s too long of a name, so we called it “the Official Obama Administration Scandals List.” This list covers Barack Obama and his pals from day one through September 4th, 2011. At that point, the list was discontinued. We present this list to you as an accurate and complete historic detail of the Legacy of Lies President Obama leaves behind for the time period starting with his youth and going until September 4th, 2011.

- Obama’s Hypocrisy on the Environment Buys Two Health Reform Votes 3/24/2010 The American Thinker: “Something’s fishy in the state of California, and it stinks of political corruption most foul. The water supply to the San Joaquin valley was shut off on December 2008 and remains off today, destroying thousands of lives and livelihoods of the farmers, small business owners and their employees who live and work in the valley. Additionally, it has crippled our domestic crop production, of which about 12% was grown in this area. This tremendous sacrifice was absolutely necessary, at least according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Obama administration. A valuable endangered species, the Delta Smelt, was being threatened by the diversion of water into the valley. Local salmon and steelhead were threatened, as well. The overwhelming menace to the Pacific ecosystem was so extreme that no amount of pleading from California politicians such as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger or Senator Dianne Feinstein could persuade Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, or President Obama to turn the water back on. On this, they had to take a principled stand. What courage these brave men possessed to steadfastly defend such a sensitive moral and ethical issue. Our natural resources and environmental sanctity must rightly outweigh the lives of 40,000 citizens and 12% of the nation’s food supply. Uh well, not quite. Apparently, the Obama administration values something even more than all the endangered species, American lives, and food shortages combined. That would be the two ObamaCare “yes” votes miraculously garnered from two previously undecided Democrat congressmen, Reps. Costa and Cardoza, whose districts are coincidentally affected by the government-imposed drought…”
- Another Obama – Arne Duncan Scandal! 3/24/2010 After President Obama promoted the man who could do nothing to improve Chicago’s failing schools to the position of U.S. Education Secretary, we learn Arne Duncan also kept a list of those he did political favors for!! More Chicago-style Street Gang Politics! From the bankrupt Chicago Tribune’s John Kass: “When U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan ran the Chicago Public Schools for the boss of Chicago, he kept a secret list of those who hoped to clout children into the city’s top-tier public schools. “We didn’t want to advertise what we were doing because we didn’t want a bunch of people calling,” CPS official David Pickens admitted to Tribune reporters Azam Ahmed and Stephanie Banchero, who broke the story. So the schools kept a clout list. But they didn’t want nobody nobody sent hassling them with calls.And once again, the bright road that is the Chicago Way is paved with shiny bricks for all to see.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes that unfortunately this “Chicago Way” now is running Washington, D.C. And, who knew Chicago had any “top tier” schools?! Even the Progressive-Liberal NY Times had to report on this story.
- Obama’s “Big TARP Lie” Expoosed! 3/24/2010 The ultra-liberal FireDogLake website says Obama and the Dems are lying about banks repaying loans, “The Administration and our Congressional leaders continue to perpetuate the lie that the Banks have paid back the American Taxpayer. They know they are being deceptive. When they speak of repayment it is TARP, TARP is less than 2% of the assistance, wealth transfer, offered by the Fed/Treasury. The AIG emails, the Barofsky report, the lack of fraud investigation and the conduct of both parties related to these matters is another good cause for peaceful revolution. If you allow your Government to collude with the Banksters in what everybody knows has been criminal, treasonous conduct, and demand no accountability, then the Republic is lost.”
- Obama Team Exempts Itself from the ObamaCare Nightmare! 3/24/2010 Fox News: “Come 2014, all 100 U.S. senators, all 435 representatives in the House and every one of their personal aides will have to go to the newly formed state exchanges for health insurance — just like everyone else in the country who isn’t covered by their employer. But select congressional leadership staffers — some of whom wrote the health insurance act — won’t. And neither will White House staffers and Cabinet members — nor the president himself. They will be allowed to keep their current plans, which are offered to all other federal employees. And now many congressional aides who like their current health insurance policies and will be forced to switch are asking: Why? They want to know: If an exchange is good enough for them, why isn’t it good enough for the people who wrote the plan? Why isn’t it good enough for the president and his Cabinet?” Jon Kraushar at Fox asks, “Why does Obamacare exempt some in Congress and the White House from having to buy the same health care plans that the law forces other Americans to purchase: President Obama, Vice President Biden, Cabinet members, top White House staff, congressional committee staff and leadership staff, such as those who work for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)?”
- Biden Gaffe: Admits they were “Dead” Without ObamaCare Passing! 3/24/2010 Fox News: “”If we were unable to move the ball on this issue, not only in the political sense might we be dead,” Biden said, according to the pool report filed on the event. “But in terms of being able to deal with other major issues on our plate, we would’ve been done. Absolutely done.”” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out Biden has this upside down and Bass Ackwards… BECAUSE they passed ObamaCare they are “done. Absolutely done!”
- Was the Obama Campaign Involved in Another Chicago Real Estate Scandal? 3/26/2010 The POWP website is asking the question in a detailed online article. POWP says the scandal involves “…Marty Nesbitt accepting a $28,500 Obama Victory Fund campaign contribution after providing developers with a close to $1.3M discount on the sale of the former Chicago Housing Authority headquarters.” POWP says Nesbitt may be getting special treatment over another person in a similar case, “It appears the only difference is that Marty Nesbitt is BFF with Barack Obama… I am still surprised that the local U.S. Attorney’s office hasn’t so much as lifted a finger, it seems, relating to the Marty Nesbitt/CHA quid-pro-quo/Obama campaign contributions matter. Again, it appears that Nesbitt & Company are being provided a MAJOR hall pass, which in itself is egregious.” Read the article here.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 149 – Robert Harding 3/27/2010 In a late Friday night “make it go away” press release, Fox reports: “President Barack Obama’s second nominee for transportation security chief withdrew from consideration Friday because of questions over his background as a defense contractor. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Robert Harding took himself out of the running as head of the Transportation Security Administration, another setback for Obama after his first choice withdrew in January because he faced a tough confirmation struggle in Congress. The Obama administration has called the job the most important unfilled position on Obama’s team. “I feel that the distractions caused by my work as a defense contractor would not be good for this administration nor for the Department of Homeland Security,” Harding said in a late-evening statement released by the White House. The agency is part of Homeland Security.” UPDATE 3/29/2010: Harding is number ten on Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s “Top 10” list of President Obama’s nominees and appointees who have resigned in disgrace.”
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 150 – Multi-Millionaire Jeffrey Goldstein 3/27/2010
President Obama today used a recess appointment to name multi-millionaire Wall Street investor Jeffrey Goldstein to a post at the U.S. Treasury Department. White House spokesgal Jen Psaki issued a misleading press release which indicates, “Jeffrey Goldstein was nominated to serve as the top domestic finance official at Treasury, a crucial position for fixing the economy and preventing another financial crisis. Goldstein has been waiting 248 days or over 8 months.” – You wouldn’t know from that release that Goldstein is already working at the Treasury, would you? They simply gave him the title of “Counselor,” a position (since it was just made up) that wouldn’t need Senate approval, and he started work anyway! Bloomberg says Goldstein had a lot of divesting to do to take the post: “Jeffrey Goldstein, the private- equity executive nominated to be Treasury undersecretary, is obligated to pay at least $10.5 million to several investment partnerships, according to an ethics filing… The investments are one of several links Goldstein, 53, has to the buyout industry, where he earned about $30 million in partnership income over the past 1 1/2 years, according to the disclosure. As a Treasury undersecretary, his salary would be less than $200,000… The nominee has agreed to divest his partnership in Hellman & Friedman for an amount to be determined, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be released from his capital commitments to the funds. Goldstein is also due a $5 million to $25 million performance bonus from the firm, the filing shows.” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out we’re always told all those rich, white, Evil Wall Street Executives are Republican! Apparently that is BIG lie too! So much for helping the man on Main Street! Obama names another corporate executive multi-millionaire to serve in his administration!
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 151 – Liberal Lawyer Jacqueline Berrien 3/27/2010 Obama also used a recess appointment today to circumvent the Senate and name Jacqueline Berrien to serve on the Berrien is a lawyer for the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 152 – Chai Feldblum 3/27/2010 Obama went around the Senate again today to name a Lesbian woman to the Equal Employment Opportunity (for liberals) Commission. Chai Feldblum was unable to secure Senate support in a simple up or down vote, so the President skipped the process! Metro Weekly reports Feldblum, “…worked with Congress and LGBT organization in the crafting of and revisions to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, currently before Congress. As Tony Varona, a law professor at American University’s Washington College of Law said on Saturday, ”Chai’s appointment to the EEOC is wonderful news both for the LGBT community, as well as the broader civil rights and public interest community.”
- Obama Freedom Of Information Not So Transparent After All 3/27/2010 Jeffrey Berkowitz at the GOP recently noted, “the departments of State, Transportation, Treasury, NASA and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have fulfilled noticeably fewer FOIA requests and denied more of them since Obama took office. And The Associated Press reported that government use of legal exemptions to keep information secret has increased by a third since 2008. It looks like the most transparent thing about Obama is his doubletalk about transparency.”
- Obama Apology Tour Continues!! -Mexico Still Our Fault! 3/27/2010 Obama’s Drug Czar continued the Obama-mania apology tour today by saying the U.S. is to blame for the drug wars killing thousands! Fox News: “White House Drug Czar Chief Gil Kerlikowske said on Saturday that the U.S. has a responsibility to bear when it comes to the ongoing drug war in Mexico. Speaking on Fox News, Kerlikowske admitted that the U.S. is “a large consumer nation” of drugs and that the Obama Administration is working hard to combat the problem and “reduce the amount of drugs that we consume.”? Kerlikowske’s comments come as violence in Mexico has continued to escalate in recent days, notably in the border city of Juarez. He says the U.S. is working to seize money that fuels Mexican drug cartels and to ”stop the flow of guns” between the two countries.” – ConservativeAmerican.org says take steps to address the issues, yes, but skip the public continual apologies and blaming ourselves for problems the Mexican government has failed to solve.
- Obama Appointment Scandal # 153 – Alan Bersin 3/28/2010 Another of Obama’s recess appointments yesterday is causing some controversy. The liberal NY Times reports: “Alan D. Bersin, the nominee for commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection division of the Department of Homeland Security, (was) still being vetted by the Senate Finance Committee. Mr. Obama’s decision to bypass the vetting drew criticism Saturday from the senior Republican on the panel, Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa. Mr. Grassley said… Mr. Bersin was answering questions about “what appeared to be conflicting information about his documentation and disclosure” of household employees — questions that, the senator said, were “directly relevant” to the (position he) will hold.”
- Obama Repeats Healthcare Lies in Iowa
- Obama Friend Says “Socialism Has a Future” in USA!
3/29/2010 World Net Daily reports, “A personal friend and recent adviser to President Obama addressed a socialist conference at which he declared “socialism has a future” while urging participants to help Obama. Cornel West, an extremist race-relations instructor at Princeton, addressed the 10th annual Young Democratic Socialists conference earlier this month. The three-day event took place at Norman Thomas High School in Manhattan, named after an American socialist activist… He stated, “We are at a very crucial historical moment. My dear friend Barack Obama, he needs help. He needs deep help. He needs pressure. Organized, mobilized pressure.” West went on to urge the crowd not to rely on “messiahs” or “leaders,” instead explaining the mantel for ushering socialist change into the country “falls onto us.” Obama named West, whom he has called a personal friend, to the Black Advisory Council of his presidential campaign. West was a key point man between Obama’s campaign and the black community.” – ConservativeAmerican.org says this is just another lefty radical Obama pals around with.
- Obama Spends $3.4-Billion to Buy 11 ObamaCare Votes! 3/29/2010 Fox News: “The 11 House Democrats led by Rep. Bart Stupak who dropped their opposition to health care reform legislation mere hours before the final vote have requested $3.4 billion in earmarks — and one watchdog group wants to know whether the money represents business as usual or political payoffs. The Sunlight Foundation says it plans to track the earmark requests, which were put in one day after health care reform cleared Congress, to see whether they’re approved and whether it appears lawmakers are being rewarded for their vote.”
- Obama Returning Terrorists to the Battlefields! 3/30/2010 Fox News: “Prior to his release in December, Abdul Hafiz was Prisoner Number 1030 at Guantanamo Bay. Now, less than four months later, he’s back home in Afghanistan and working for the Taliban — just the latest of more than 100 released detainees who have returned to terrorism, according to the Pentagon. Hafiz, suspected in the March 2003 kidnapping and murder of an International Red Cross worker, was the “Taliban head of all Madrassas … responsible for recruiting and sending young men to fight for the Taliban,” according to U.S. government memos. He was said to have maintained contacts for Mullah Mohammad Omar, the leader of the Taliban of Afghanistan, and to have admitted to participating in jihad against the Soviets. But despite the list of charges against him, the U.S. government transferred Hafiz to his home country in December. And now, a senior U.S. official tells Fox News, he is back on the battlefield.” — ConservativeAmerican.org says this is all in the name of closing Gitmo. Obama has to pay off his lefty fringe voters with this closing, even if it puts Americans at risk!
- Even More ObamaCare Nightmare Lies Exposed! 3/30/2010 John Lott, author and Fox News commentator, adds a few more to the huge list! ” “Obama promised that his plan’s $50 billion to $65 billion price tag would be paid for by discontinuing Bush’s tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000 a year.” — from candidate questionnaire during 2008 presidential campaign. The $940 billion health care bill just passed by the House is between 45 and 88 percent more expensive than Obama promised during the campaign. And this excludes the additional $208 billion so-called “doc fix,” which restores some of the cuts in Medicare reimbursements written into the bill to doctors. The latest Congressional Budget Office estimates indicate that the law won’t be budget neutral — increasing total deficits by $260 billion over the next 10 years, and this ignores many of the costs…”
- Even More, More ObamaCare Nightmare Lies Exposed! 3/30/2010 John Lott, author and Fox News commentator, adds this one too! “Promises to strip out special deals from the health care bill – Just in the new reconciliation bill, 11 states and Washington D.C. are given $8.5 billion in special federal funds to provide health care coverage. Likewise, rural areas in some states, such as Oregon, got a last-minute deal to increase Medicare reimbursement rates. Various unrelated deals were made to buy the votes of some congressmen. For instance, take the additional water supplies given to central California to buy the votes of California Democratic Reps. Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa. Or the promised push for legalizing illegal immigrants that was granted by the president to get the vote of Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D.-Ill.). And then there was the money for a single hospital in Connecticut, special funds for Montana, and the Louisiana Purchase (a $350 billion aide package one for Louisiana). “
- Obama’s Hypocrisy on Recess Appointments! 3/30/2010 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online has a small list of some of Obama’s “Statement Expiration Dates!” He adds this one to our list: “STATEMENT: Then-Senator Obama declared that a recess appointment is “damaged goods” and has “less credibility” than a normal appointment. August 25, 2005. EXPIRATION DATE: March 27, 2010: “If, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”
- Obama’s Broken Stimulus Transparency Promise! 3/30/2010 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online: “STATEMENT: “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov.” – President Obama, January 28, 2009. EXPIRATION DATE: “More than two months after some of the funds were released, [Recovery.gov] offers little detail on where the money is going… The government [spent] $84 million on a website that doesn’t have a search function, when its purpose is to ‘root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.’”
- Obama’s Hypocrisy on Border Security! 3/30/2010 Jim Geraghty at National Review Online: “STATEMENT: “We need tougher border security, and a renewed focus on busting up gangs and traffickers crossing our border. . . . That begins at home, with comprehensive immigration reform. That means securing our border and passing tough employer enforcement laws.” then-candidate Obama, discussing the need for border security, speaking in Miami on May 23, 2008: EXPIRATION DATE: March 17, 2010: The Obama administration halted new work on a “virtual fence” on the U.S.-Mexican border, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday, diverting $50 million in planned economic stimulus funds for the project to other purposes.”
- Did Obama Flip Flop on War Policy? Hannity says “Yes!” 3/30/2010 Sean Hannity says this Obama Flip-Flop would make John Kerry proud! “President Obama was in Afghanistan over the weekend in his very first visit to that country since his inauguration. While he was on the ground he attended an event with the troops, but take a close look at what he had to say. It is a far cry from what we heard from him on the campaign trail: OBAMA: “The United States of America does not quit once it starts on something. You don’t quit. The American Armed Services does not quit. We keep at it, we persevere. And together with our partners, we will prevail.” … As NewsBusters.org and others are pointing out, it sounds strange coming from a guy who repeatedly called for an abrupt withdrawal from Iraq during the campaign. Remember this? OBAMA, SEPT. 12, 2007: “Let me be clear, there is no military solution in Iraq. There never was. The best way to protect our security and to pressure Iraq’s leaders to resolve their civil war is to immediately begin to remove our combat troops. Not in six months or in one year, but now.”
- Joey Biden’s “You Say Tomato” Gaffe 3/31/2010 Vice President Joey Buttafuoco Biden said yesterday that while some call the ObamaCare Nightmare a “Redistribution of Wealth,” he just calls it “Fair.” Robin Hood Economics from a Progressive-Socialist.
- Obama Team Messes Up Student Loan Operation on its First Day!
- Obama Feigns Support for Offshore Drilling
- Obama’s Flag Lying on the Ground! 3/31/2010 Will sloppy White House employees hear about this? The Audacity of Hypocrisy reports Their carelessness and disrespect resulted in the White House flag lying on the floor during Obama’s visit with the French dude yesterday. Will they ask the Boy Scouts to retire this flag in an appropriate ceremony?
- Obama Administration “Expected” Businesses to Lose Billions of Dollars with Passage of ObamaCare Nightmare!!! 3/31/2010 This one is amazing. Obama pal, and White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett says the big losses being reported by AT&T, John Deere and others were not “unexpected.” John McCormick at Bloomberg reports, “Jarrett said the charges taken by companies such as AT&T weren’t unexpected.” McCormick reports Jarrett, “…doesn’t believe businesses are trying to damage the image of the health-care overhaul with accounting charges tied to the law… AT&T, based in Dallas, announced last week that it was taking a $1 billion charge because of the change in law. Moline, Illinois-based Deere, the world’s largest maker of farm machinery, announced a $150 million charge. And Peoria, Illinois-based Caterpillar, the world’s largest maker of bulldozers, has claimed a $100 million charge. “The companies who are reporting this charge against their net earnings aren’t pushing back, they’re following the law,” Jarrett said.” — ConservativeAmerican.org asks if Jarrett told McCormick these huge losses were “not unexpected,” then why didn’t the Obama Administration admit ahead of time this bill would clobber big employers?! Jarrett apparently didn’t get the DNC memo from Congressman Wormtail Waxman! McCormick reports, “Representative Henry Waxman called March 26 for the CEOs of several companies to provide evidence to support costs they plan to book as a result of the change.” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out Waxman apparently thinks the companies are just playing games and trying to hurt the Progressive-Socialist Democrat party! He apparently is unaware of SEC regulations requiring companies to report immediately on changes like this.
- Liberals Say Obama Has Broken Gun Control Promise< 3/31/2010 The DC Progressive website headline reads “Obama’s “One Broken Promise.” One?! OMG, we’re on page 25 of the list already!! From their report: “Northeastern professor James Alan Fox boldly claims President Obama has not yet followed through on the promise of gun control. Specifically pointing to a provision on federal databases, known as the Tiahrt Amendment, Fox rightfully claims notes that the repeal of this restriction was part of the President’s campaign platform and has yet to be acted upon. The Brady Campaign recently agreed with this sentiment and gave President Obama an “F” in every aspect of preventing gun violence. In a rather scathing review of the last year, the organization says “his Administration’s extraordinary silence and passivity has allowed the gun lobby to move its agenda forward.”

3/28/2010 David Mastio at the DesMoines Register writes: “In his Iowa City speech last week, the president continued with two of his administration’s biggest lies. “They will see that if Americans like their doctor, they will keep their doctor. If people like their plan, they will keep their plan. No one will be able to take that away from you,” he told Iowans. Yet he has already admitted that isn’t quite true. The government is rewriting the rules for every health-care plan in the country. They will all change. As the rules change, doctors will reconsider which plans they participate in as will hospitals and medical groups. Businesses will make decisions based on the new rules about what plans they offer and whether they offer insurance at all. Nobody knows how the 2,000-page legislation will play out in the market, but one thing we do know is that there will be lots of change. To claim otherwise is a lie.”
3/31/2010 The Washington Times: “Visitors to the site www.studentloans.gov early Tuesday afternoon saw an error message, while users Monday saw either an error message or, in the evening, were simply unable to connect to the site at all. The site was working again by late Tuesday, but critics said the technical problems underscore their concerns about turning such a major program over to the federal government. “This is a case study in what happens when the federal government takes over a function of the private sector. On its first day of operation, the federal student loan program has collapsed into a black hole from which no information can escape,” said John Hart, a spokesman for Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican.”
3/31/2010 President Barack Hugo Obama will claim today that he agrees with his presumed 2012 opponent, Sarah Palin, and that additional area should be freed up along the coasts of the Viriginia’s and Florida for offshore drilling. Progressive-Socialist Reporter Brian Williams will tell you tonight how this will pave the way for more energy production here at home. While ConservativeAmerican.org is in favor of offshore drilling and, at least on the surface, would thus support this move from President Obama, we also don’t want you to fall for this trickery for one minute! This will pave the way for nothing more than years of pre-determined delays Obama and his minions at the EPA have built in to make sure this never happens. This is nothing more than a way for him to say how cool he is for supporting offshore drilling, when in reality he will do no such thing! It’s just like the cow crap he pulled claiming to support more nuclear energy. If you choose to take Obama at his word, this would also be a flip-flop from his campaign statements that McCain’s plan to drill offshore would do nothing at all to drop gas prices or address our energy needs. The President was in fact against offshore drilling before he was for it before his EPA is against it (at his command)… follow that?!
4/2/10 Rush Limbaugh: “Now, here’s a lie. And of course most of the previous sound bite was a lie. Matt Lauer finally said, “A lot of people wonder how a bill could be good for the American public in general when it didn’t receive one single Republican vote, when a recent poll said 50% of people aren’t in favor of it, how do you respond to that?” OBAMA: ‘When you actually look at the bill itself, it incorporates all sorts of Republican ideas. I mean a lot of commentators have said, “You know, this is sort of similar to the bill that Mitt Romney, the Republican governor and now presidential candidate, passed in Massachusetts.” A lot of the ideas in terms of the exchange, just being able to pool and improve the purchasing power of individuals in the insurance market, that originated from the Heritage Foundation.’ RUSH: And they are fulminating at the Heritage Foundation because it’s an out-and-out total fabrication, Obama claiming a central tenet came from them. Actually you just heard it, he tried to explain that the insurance exchange he envisions being built by government is an idea that came from Heritage in the first place, and nothing could be further from the truth.”
4/2/10 The liberal H.R. Huff-n-Puff-ington Post reports: “the ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn R. Walker angrily rejected the Obama administration’s attempts to get the case dismissed on the basis of a “state secrets” privilege. That assertion was first made by Bush administration lawyers, but was enthusiastically re-asserted by President Obama’s Justice Department. For that reason, the ruling should serve as a wake-up call to those who thought that the days of executive overreach were behind us — and as a red alert to all who care about the separation of powers…”
4/2/2010 From Timothy Carney at the Washington Examiner we learn that the under secretary for export administration at the Department of Commerce, Eric Hirschhorn, worked for Winston & Strawn as a lobbyist for Lockheed Martin and Sun Chemicals.
4/3/2010 Amy Kingsley at Las Vegas City Life writes: “For years, the United States has over-promised and underfunded its AIDS-prevention and treatment efforts in Africa, according to the Health Global Access Project. It’s gotten worse under President Obama. Say what you will about President Bush, but the guy did a lot for AIDS sufferers in sub-Saharan Africa. It’s one of the few foreign policy initiatives he can legitimately call a success. During his presidency, AIDS-related deaths in Kenya dropped by 29 percent. An average of half a million people were added to anti-retroviral drug programs every year under 2002’s President’s Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Obama’s campaign promises included a pledge to increase the commitment from $19 million to $50 million. Didn’t happen. Instead, he scaled back some of the most ambitious parts of the program. Instead of adding 500,000 to drug programs, the Obama administration plans to add only 320,000, according to ReliefWeb. So much for doubling PEPFAR. A coalition of African AIDS organizations gave Obama a D+ for his first year in office. UPDATE 5/13/2010: “African AIDS Activists: Obama’s Lies Are Costing Our Lives!” Protesters gather today to picket an Obama fundraiser in New York! His voters are turning on him!
4/3/2010 From Timothy Carney at the Washington Examiner: Michael Punke serves as Deputy U.S. Trade Representative and was a former lobbyist for Time Warner Cable. ConservativeAmerican.org notes 52 lobbyists in the “No lobbyists, I promise” administration so far!
4/3/2010 Warner Todd Huston notes at BigGovernment that Eric Stein (deputy assistant treasury secretary for consumer protection) was a lobbyist and now works for Obama. Stein worked for the left-wing group, “Center for Responsible Lending.” My thanks to the Whitley County Patriots for their help in adding these latest few lobbyists to our list. UPDATE 4/25/2010: From Americans for Prosperity comes this video…
AFP wants an investigation into the ties between Paulson, Goldman Sachs and Eric Stein.
4/3/2010 The Tundra Tabloid quotes author and radio talk show host Mark Levin as having raised this question: “(LEVIN) Now, I did a little research on the census and the federal statutes that are related to the census, and I found title 13 Section 221, and it says among other things: “persons who knowingly provide false information to the census can be fined up to $500 dollars. Now Barack Obama is half white and half black, that’s something to be proud of, not to be ashamed of, and yet depending on the campaign, depending on the state, depending on where he is, he’s kind of a chameleon. So here we have this federal law that imposes a fine of up to $500 dollars for false information and his information is false. There’s a reason why the census wants to know if you’re mixed. Now we’re told that we have to fill out this census, we’re told it’s our civic duty. It seems to me if our civic duty is to fill out the census, and it’s our civic duty to fill it out correctly, so Obama did not fill it out accurately, so the way I see it, he owes us $500 bucks. I’m sorry, am I being technical? If you were messing around with the census, they’d be knocking on your door.”
4/4/2010 The America Gay Blog says Team Obama continues to lie about wanting to get rid of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy against gays serving in the military. From their post: “here’s the lie from DOJ spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler, then I’ll give you lots of proof to show that she just lied to every single one of you: Tracy Schmaler, a Justice Department spokesman, reiterated the administration’s opposition to the don’t ask, don’t tell policy, and its goal of repealing “this discriminatory law.” “In this case the Department is defending the statute, as it traditionally does when acts of Congress are challenged,” she said. “The Department does not pick and choose which federal laws it will defend based on any one Administration’s policy preferences.” Several problems here. 1) We are told that “traditionally” the department defends statutes, regardless of how vehemently the administration disagrees with the law. That is a lie, and it’s one that Joe and I have been fighting back against for 8 months now. The first time DOJ, and the Obama administration generally, trotted out this lie was during the DOMA brief fiasco last June (this was the brief defending the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act by invoking incest and pedophilia, among other things). At the time, the administration said they had no choice but to defend the bigoted law in court. That was untrue.”
4/4/2010 The America Gay Blog says there’s an even bigger lie: “Perhaps the biggest lie from Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler is the following: “The Department does not pick and choose which federal laws it will defend based on any one Administration’s policy preferences.” Policy preferences? Is that what our civil rights, and clear promises from the President during the campaign, have now transformed into – simple “policy preferences”? But back to the substance, what Tracy Schmaler just told you is a flat out lie. As we have shown, over and over again, the Obama administration is more than happy to look the other way on laws that don’t agree with their “policy preferences.” I’m not saying that they go to court and argue against the laws, I’m saying that they simply ignore them.”
4/5/2010 In a shallow move that only is designed as populism, Barack Obama continues to talk about Americans not wanting to “put Insurance companies back in the driver’s seat” of health care. Karl Rove, in a recent appearance on Fox News, says this is all a lie. Rove says the truth of the matter is that ObamaCare is a $466-Billion handout to those same evil insurance companies Obama pretends to hate!
4/5/2010 This one will fire up the birthers! I think she meant his “family’s” home country (ignoring his lilly white mother). Still, this video is rather amusing because she does say it is his home country! Watch…
UPDATE 4/6/2010: Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that he believes this 2008 video was released now by the left in order to stir up birthers and paint all the Tea Party-type activisits as wacko, nut jobs. UPDATE 5/5/2010:American Thinker has a second video of Mrs. O calling her husband a Kenyan! Their funny headline asks if Michelle is a “birther.” Video is from December, 2007:
The Chicago News Bench, Pat Dollard and Talking Sides are reporting: “For years there have been under-reported connections between organized crime, Illinois Senate Candidate Alexi Giannoulias and President Barack Obama… According to …Chicacgo Tribune, the bank owned by the Giannoulias family loaned a pair of Chicago crime figures about $20 million during a 14-month period when Giannoulias was a senior loan officer… The connection between Alexi Giannoulias and Barack Obama is much more than just the fact that Mr. Giannoulias is running for the US Senate seat once held by the current president:.. Mr. Giannoulias and his family were early supporters of Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign and the president returned the favor in 2006 when he showed heavy support for Giannoulias in his run for state Treasurer… In September of 2007, a fundraiser for then Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was hosted by Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias. The fundraiser was omitted from Mr. Obama’s public schedule… In October of 2009, Mr. Giannoulias stopped by the White House during a trip to Washington to discuss his prospects for winning the Democratic party’s nomination for Senate. He met with Senior Obama adviser David Axelrod. Alexi Giannoulias is the quintisential Chicago politician; equally at ease whether joking with US Senators or doing business with mobsters. Befriended and supported by the ultimate Chicago politician: President Barack Obama.” — ConservativeAmerican.org has some questions about this story. Is there any evidence at all that Giannoulias himself had anything to do with these loans to men who were on their way to prison? Or was it just the fact the loans were mad by his family’s bank? If all is above board, why would Obama remove the fundraiser from his public schedule? What was there to hide? Is there any evidence connecting Obama to the mobsters who received the loans? Or is this just a story that points to another questionable friendship Obama maintains (being the friend of someone who perhaps had ties to those in organized crime)? Despite these and other questions, because this is being reported widely online, we share it with you here.
4/6/2010 Jay Ambrose from Scripps-Howard News Service writes, “…Defenders of a penalty for people who don’t buy health insurance say it’s just a tax and is therefore OK under the Constitution, but it cannot conceivably be a tax. That would break a Barack Obama promise… I remember his saying emphatically, sternly, with all the sincerity capable of being conveyed by that wowing oratorical style of his, that he would never, ever even as much as consider a tax on anyone making less than $250,000 a year… (he) has repeated that promise maybe 100 times or more, and this penalty in this new health law he is so proud of would affect literally millions of people who don’t make anywhere near that kind of money. So if the penalty is a tax that would mean Obama has been kidding us with that promise. How could that happen? Easily, I am afraid.” Ambrose then adds that “People who keep track of such things say Obama has now broken something like 15 major campaign promises on top of a great many lesser ones…” — ConservativeAmerican.org is keeping track, Mr. Ambrose. There are hundreds of broken promises, not just “15!” They all are on our Official Obama Administration List of broken promises, flip flops, lies and scandals… a list of more than 1,340 items!
4/6/2010 Ron Moore is a former union leader and has written at Open Salon that, “In an October 20, 2008 letter to the American Federation of Government Employees, the union that has supported TSOs from the very beginning, Obama stressed that “it is unacceptable for TSOs to work under unfair rules and without workplace protections … Collective bargaining rights ensure that federal agencies run as effectively as possible and are able to focus on protecting our national security…” …Rather than keep this promise on his first day in office, the new president was too clever by half, devising a process that complicated keeping this simple promise by delaying the promised change until his appointee as TSA administrator was confirmed. This allowed a stalking horse to be created to the benefit of anti-union demagogues like Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) who could simply put a hold on the nomination to prevent dignity in the TSA workplace… Mr. President, I take this broken promise personally. As the founding president of AFGE Local 1 I paid a heavy price for speaking out against racial discrimination and other forms of abuse in the TSA workplace. I lost everything except my dignity and determination to continue to speak out. Each day that you refuse to simply order your Director of Homeland Security to change the working conditions at TSA, conditions Candidate Obama called unacceptable, leaves those who serve no better off than they were under your predecessor. Some change. If not now, when? If not you, who? We believed and supported the change you promised and sadly we are still waiting.” ConservativeAmerican.org added the emphasis. We also are strong supporters of Conservative American Jim DeMint who stands up for the freedom of all workers, not just Progressive-Socialist-Democrats in labor unions.
4/7/2010 News reports out today say former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker, the top economic adviser to Barack Hugo Obama, says we may need a national sales tax! They call it a “value added tax!” How is any value added to anything by taxing it?! Reuters reports: “The United States should consider raising taxes to help bring deficits under control and may need to consider a European-style value-added tax, White House adviser Paul Volcker said on Tuesday. Volcker, answering a question from the audience at a New York Historical Society event, said the value-added tax “was not as toxic an idea” as it has been in the past and also said a carbon or other energy-related tax may become necessary…” ConservativeAmerican.org asks, Any questions as to why we have TEA (Taxed Enough Already) parties? Anyone? Any overwhelming desire out there to be style ourselves more like the Europeans?! Both ideas would (AGAIN) break Obama’s Promise of no new taxes, “Not one dime!”, on those making less than $250,000 a year.
4/7/2010 You can’t make up stuff this stupid! Republican U.S. Senator and Doctor Tom Coburn of Oklahoma tried to get language into the ObamaCare bill to prevent this nonsense. But tricky Dicky Durbin said it was just a “gotcha amendment” designed to be difficult for Democrats to oppose… huh? What the heck does that mean?! It should be difficult to oppose! Why the heck would you want to oppose it?! The Coburn language was defeated. So Fox News reports the Congressional Research Services office has confirmed that Coburn was right all along! ObamaCare will provide taxpayer-funded Viagra and other ED drugs to convicted sex offenders who are not in prison. Great idea the Progressive-Socialists had, eh? NOT!
4/7/2010 The nation’s first Socialist president, the man who is personal friends with terrorist Bill Ayers and terrorist Rashid Khalidi, is again reaching out to the Muslim world to make sure we don’t offend any radical Islamist Jihadists!!! This is so freaking unbelievable! Could any of us have imagined such a ridiculous thing just 9 years after 9/11?! He’ll offend Tea Partiers, but he doesn’t want to hurt the feelings of an Islamist Jihadist! Fox News reports, “President Barack Obama’s advisers will remove religious terms such as “Islamic extremism” from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said. The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.” — ConservativeAmerican.org believes this naive head-in-the-Jihadist-sand President just wants to pretend there is no war against militant Islamic Radicalism! Shhhhh! If we just don’t talk about it, maybe it will go away! It is unfortunate for history’s sake that the first biracial President will have to be recorded as a radical extremist himself. Perhaps the biggest crime in 2008 was the failure… no, it wasn’t a failure because they never tried… was the lack of any interest by the MSM in vetting Barack Obama as a Presidential candidate.
4/8/2010 – Fox News: “…The Obama administration has a plan to expand online innovation and boost national public safety. And it wants to do it with more taxes and higher fees. The massive national broadband plan the Federal Communications Commission released last month proposes creating a national framework for the taxation of digital goods and services and imposing a fee to establish and maintain a national public safety wireless broadband network. The FCC says the national tax would eliminate the headaches that come with varying state and local taxes on digital goods and services…”
4/11/2010 From World Net Daily: President Obama was never a “Professor” of Constitutional Law. “This current round of the controversy harkens back to the 2008 presidential campaign when Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton made nearly the same charges in a March 25, 2008, “Hillary for President” press release entitled “Just Embellished Words: Senator Obama’s Record of Exaggerations & Misstatements.” After stating Barack Obama was not a law professor at the University of Chicago, the Clinton press release insisted: “He (Barack Obama) is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school. In academia, there’s a vast difference between the two titles. Details matter. Professors have tenure while lecturers do not.”
Liberty News Online reports on the letter actor Jon Voight wrote to President Obama about the big lie: “(VOIGHT)In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration. The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care of. President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is. It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new language for the Islamic extremists. The world looked up to us as a symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire world if America is losing its power.”
4/12/2010 Israel Matzav catches this Obama Lie: “During the …campaign, candidate Obama addressed the issue of (Zbigniew) Brzezinski’s role directly at least twice when asked about it by concerned Jewish voters. Relations between Brzezinski and the Obama campaign were already an issue, with Alan Dershowitz having publicly called on Obama to repudiate Brzezinski when he met with about 100 members of the Cleveland Jewish Community on February 24, 2008. Here’s what he said: “I know Brzezinski. He’s not one of my key advisors. I’ve had lunch with him once, I’ve exchanged e-mails with him maybe 3 times. … I do not share his views with respect to Israel.”Then, on April 16, 2008, candidate Obama met with Jewish leaders from the Philadelphia area. This is how the New York Sun reported the April 16 meeting: Rabbi Neil Cooper… asked him (Obama) about the connection between Mr. Carter’s national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and the Obama campaign. “From my perspective, the devil here is going to be in the details,” Rabbi Cooper said. “The questions I have have to do with his very pronouncements on Israel on the one hand, which are positive, and then he seems to attract all kinds of other people who have a different agenda on Israel, like Brzezinski. I said, ‘Why don’t you get rid of Brzezinski?’ He says he listens to Brzezinski on certain things but not when it comes to Israel.”…Now comes a report in the New York Times according to which, at a White House meeting, President Obama asked Mr. Brzezinski for his advice on whether to put forward an American plan for Arab-Israeli peace.
4/12/2010 Commentary Magazine’s Ira Stoll reports, “President Obama asked Mr. Brzezinski for his advice on whether to put forward an American plan for Arab-Israeli peace. Worse, present at this same meeting was Brent Scowcroft, whom, back during the campaign, Obama proxies were criticizing Senator McCain for listening to. President Obama says consumers need a new regulatory agency to protect them from being conned by greedy bankers. But as far as fraudulent sales jobs go, the one that the Democrat pulled on Jewish voters in 2008 is one for the ages.”
4/13/2010 From Republican House Leader John Boehner, “As a candidate for president, then-Sen. Barack Obama laid out a clear benchmark for health care reform by stating that his plan “reduces every family’s premiums by as much as $2,500.” It was a major component of the Obama “change” agenda, and one which OMB Director Peter Orszag repeated on behalf of President Obama as recently as last spring, in a May 15, 2009 op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office determined, however, that millions of families would actually see their premiums increase by as much as $2,100 as a result of Democrats’ government takeover of health care. Now, millions of Americans may soon be hit with a “unexpected jolt in the pocketbook” because President Obama’s new health care law won’t prevent the massive premium increases he promised to “end,” according to today’s Los Angeles Times.”
4/13/2010 He did it again. Unbelievable. Photographer Jim Watson caught the latest Obama bow down to our enemies. The picture is a clear example of how President Obama reaches out to enemies while abandoning allies like Poland and Israel. It is his second bow down to the Chinese leader. The USA Today reports, “We had a feeling this picture was going to get some attention… another example of President Obama bowing to another foreign leader, in this case Chinese President Hu Jintao. “He just can’t help himself,” writes Gateway Pundit. “What a disgrace.” The Hot Air website writes that, “I don’t know if I’ve gotten used to him doing this or if it’s a small relief to see him not go quite as perpendicular as he did for the Japanese emperor, but my heart-ache isn’t as pronounced as it was in the past.”
4/14/2010 President Obama bragged about his school loan takeover “cutting out the middle man.” He was referring to kicking private banks out of the business. What he forgot to mention comes from Into The Marketplace: “he lied to us again. In case you hadn’t noticed, the new Obamacare deal provided an opportunity for the federal government to hijack the student loan program, close out private banks from loaning money to students and then on top of this, students taking out new loans will be assessed an additional fee of $1700 for every $10,000 dollars in loans that they receive for their education. The net result will be that students will need to increase their indebtedness and the cost of education just increased by 17%.”
4/14/2010 Associated Press reports: “OBAMA: Said in comparing today’s threat to that during the Cold War: “The risk of a nuclear confrontation between nations has gone down, but the risk of nuclear attack has gone up.” THE FACTS: Yes, the bleak Cold War vision of mutual annihilation is all but gone now, and in its place is a new kind of risk. But linking the two, as he did, implies that the outcome from both scenarios is comparable. He is correct that the numerical risk of an attack is higher now simply because there is so much material stockpiled and so many ways it could be misused. Yet the consequences are more limited now than from a nuclear exchange between superpowers with thousands of warheads each. The more likely scenario now is a limited attack confined to one city rather than global nuclear winter.
4/14/2010 The Associated Press: “OBAMA: “Just the smallest amount of plutonium – about the size of an apple – could kill and injure hundreds of thousands of innocent people.” THE FACTS: The apple might be a nice visual, but perhaps a little misleading. Brookings Institution arms control expert Steven Pifer, largely agreeing with Obama, has one quibble: He says such a package would be closer to the size of a grapefruit. More broadly, it is true that highly trained scientists and engineers with specialized equipment could fashion a small bomb that, as Obama said, could kill hundreds of thousands. But the facilities and technique needed to do so are presumed to be beyond the current reach of most terrorist groups or militant movements.
4/14/2010 NY Congressman Chuck Schumer says the Obama administration knows it’s not going to hold the terror trials in New York and should just say so already! Eric Holder went against the White House assertion that the trials will not be held in New York. Today he told congress that the option of New York trials “is not off the table.” So can Team Obama get its act together? Is New York back on the table? Or is New York not an option?
4/14/2010 From Daniel Foster at the National Review Online: “Democratic leadership in the Senate is proposing a $23 billion ‘emergency’ fund that would act as a stopgap for states considering layoffs — primarily in education — to overcome budget deficits. While nobody wants to see widespread teacher layoffs, let there be no mistake: this bill would represent yet another unpaid-for (hence the ‘emergency’ bit, which lets Dems get around PAYGO rules) bailout to favored Democratic constituencies, namely powerful teacher and municipal unions. And it would allow state and local governments to once again put off getting their fiscal houses in order.”
4/14/2010 Senator John MaverDick McCain is blasting President Obama for saying “Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.” What do you mean, “whether we like it or not?” You mean we don’t like being a superpower?? Watch him make the remark here…
4/15/2010 USA Today: “On the campaign trail for Democrat John Callahan, Biden said: “I can see exactly why John Callahan should be in United States Senate.” There’s only one problem: Callahan is running for a House seat against Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa. Biden’s slip drew some laughs and the White House pool report says the vice president “quickly recovered.” “I just got off the phone with Majority Leader Harry Reid, and I said, ‘I’m up here for the new congressmen,’ and he said, ‘well talk to him about the Senate,’ ” Biden said.
4/16/2010 Remember Candidate Obama promising not to raise any taxes, “not one dime,” on those making less than $250K a year? Well, he doesn’t remember! Americans for Tax Reform reports he is even lying about the promise he made!!! “President Barack Obama is now attempting to alter the terms of his central campaign promise – a pledge that families making less than $250,000 per year will not see “any form of tax increase” Obama now claims his pledge only applied to income taxes, as evidenced by this excerpt from his most recent weekly radio address: “And one thing we have not done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000. That’s another promise we’ve kept.” Obama broke his “any form of tax increase” pledge when he signed the healthcare bill, which contained seven tax hikes that unquestionably hit some families making less than $250,000 per year.”
4/19/2010 New America Media: “The Obama administration had long promised to shift the focus of immigration enforcement from workers to employers… as John Morton, assistant secretary of Homeland Security under President Obama, promised in a rare public speech earlier this year at the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., his agency would “focus on the employer” and pursue “aggressive criminal and civil enforcement against (employers) who knowingly violate the law.” “But it hasn’t been done,” said Crystal Williams, executive director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). Although Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) worksite arrests appear to be trending down, worksite raids continue. I-9 or Employment Eligibility Verification audits designed to spot unauthorized workforces have leapt in number. Meanwhile, ICE’s own statistics — which the agency shared with New America Media — show that the agency’s efforts to investigate employers have yet to yield an increase in prosecutions. In fact, the opposite happened — ICE brought less charges against employers in 2009 than it had the previous year…”
4/19/2010 Glenn Greenwald at Salon writes, “The more I think and read about the Obama DOJ’s prosecution of NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake, the more I think this might actually be one of the worst steps the Obama administration has taken yet, if not the single worst step — and that’s obviously saying a lot. During the Bush years, in the wake of the NSA scandal, I used to write post after post about how warped and dangerous it was that the Bush DOJ was protecting the people who criminally spied on Americans (Bush, Cheney Michael Hayden) while simultaneously threatening to prosecute the whistle-blowers who exposed misconduct. But the Bush DOJ never actually followed through on those menacing threats; no NSA whistle-blowers were indicted during Bush’s term (though several were threatened). It took the election of Barack Obama for that to happen, as his handpicked Assistant Attorney General publicly boasted yesterday of the indictment against Drake…”
4/19/2010 Ace of Spades & The Foxhole catch this latest bald-faced lie: “From President Punchdrunk’s radio address: ‘Never again will taxpayers be on the hook because a financial company is deemed ‘too big to fail.’ …From a letter to Rep John Boehner (R-OH) from the Lindsey Group. It outlines the consequences of the so-called Financial Regulation Reform Bill; another bad piece of legislation the Dems want to rush through without debate, or consideration of the taxpayer burden. First, the bill contains a $50 billion fund for resolution of systemically risky institutions. The bill allows a 2/3 vote of the Financial Stability Oversight Council to deem any firm (financial or non-financial) as coming under its rubric and then authorizes the FDIC and Treasury Secretary to treat each of the firm’s shareholders and creditors as they choose, without regard to bankruptcy law. Second, the bill gives the Treasury and the FDIC authority to grant an unlimited number of loan guarantees to systemically risky institutions. No Congressional authorization or appropriation is required. Third, the bill gives the Fed the authority to fund any “program” to assist these institutions accepting as collateral anything it deems appropriate…” — ConservativeAmerican.org says those things sound like bailouts to us! More importantly, what’s this “deem any firm as coming under its” control?! That kind of talk is Marxist!
Reporter Allison Kilkenny is one of of few to notice this AMAZING admission from the Top General working for Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack H. Obama!! From her report: “General McChrystal’s admission that the US military had “shot an amazing number of people, but to [his] knowledge, none has ever proven to be a threat.” Apart from a few fleeting exceptions (the Times briefly covered McChrystal’s statement,) the media collectively yawned and moved on even though — as I wrote at the time — here was the highest ranking US military official in Afghanistan, openly admitting that the US military has killed a whole lot of people, none of whom posed a threat. In a society that adheres to the rule of law, killing innocent civilians is still considered a war crime. Of course, this isn’t the era of accountability. This is the era of Obama, and the era of Obama is about “looking forward, not backwards.” — ConservativeAmerican.org wants to know where the anti-war crowd is? Still silent? Hmmmm…
4/19/2010 Fox News: “The White House on Monday strongly denied any involvement in the timing of the high-profile fraud case against Goldman Sachs, after Republicans suggested Democrats were exploiting the charges to build the case for their financial regulatory overhaul. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the White House “absolutely” did not have advance notice that the Securities and Exchange Commission would announce its case on Friday… Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., ranking Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, accused the administration of using “theatrics and tactics.” “It must be nice for the Democrats that the SEC’s filing against Goldman Sachs so conveniently fits into their political agenda,” Issa said in a written statement. ” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out once again the Team Obama response is that they had no idea what their own administration was doing!! Just like when Holder announced some of his confused decisions.
4/19/2010 As we have reported for months, the Obama Administration is brought to you by Goldman Sachs. There are numerous Goldman Sachs execs high up in the Obama fat-cat Administration (I thought he hated Wall Street and was going to stand with the man on Main Street??!!): Jide Zeitlin, Adam Storch, Mark Patterson, Tim the Tax Cheat Geithner, Neel Kashkari and Gary Gensler. Storch is of particular interest. He took a job Team Obama created for him as COO of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s enforcement division. Obama’s SEC is the group now going after Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs execs were the the number two contributor to the Obama campaign coming in at just shy of $1-million! Two points here: 1. Will the Obama Campaign return this money now that it has charged these guys with being crooks? 2. Watch for all of the Goldman Sachs charges in the lawsuit to be dropped once the debate over Obama’s financial takeover is completed. This is nothing more than, as Issa says above, “Theatrics.” UPDATE 4/21/10: Fox Nation: “Yet even given record-breaking financial contributions and sketchy relationships between Goldman executives and Obama officials at the highest level, the mainstream media will not afford Obama the same scrutiny it gave to George W. Bush during the collapse of Enron. Obama’s inflation-adjusted $1,007,370.85 in contributions from Goldman employees is almost seven times as much as the $151,722.42 (also inflation-adjusted) that Bush received from Enron. Goldman was one of the chief beneficiaries of the TARP bailout package — supported by then-Senator Obama — and has been a force for — not against — Democratic financial “reform” proposals currently under Senate consideration. Despite the extensive connections between President Obama and Goldman Sachs, the same media that vaguely alleged unseemly connections between the Bush administration and Enron after its 2001 collapse have barely noticed the Obama administration’s prominent ties to Goldman.
UPDATE 4/22/2010: Michelle Malkiin and Sean Hannity discuss the Goldman Sachs-Obama ties…
Rush Hudson Limbaugh today reported on Team Obama arranging to have a paid advertisement appear on Google when people did searches about the Goldman Sachs Suit! They didn’t know ahead of time, eh? LIES! From Rush: “RUSH: All right, now, as you digest that from the regime, “It’s an independent agency, we had no idea what was going on here.” “Well, how did New York Times get it before you did?” “I don’t have any idea. It’s an independent agency.” New York Post today: “President Obama is bringing his war on Wall Street to the enemy’s turf.
He’ll make his pitch for financial reform in the heart of lower Manhattan Thursday – even as his team make hay of the Goldman Sachs fiasco with a tech savvy appeal to Democratic donors.” Now listen to this. “Internet surfers who entered ‘Goldman Sachs SEC’” as a search term, Goldman Sachs, Securities Exchange Commission, “were directed to the president’s campaign website via a sponsored link titled ‘Help Change Wall Street.’ The White House’s political arm paid for the keywords — but would not say how much.” So this is pure Alinsky on steroids. This guy is incompetent to run the private sector but, boy, does he know how to agitate and community organize. They had no advance knowledge this was happening, but they happened to get hold of Google and they said, “Look, we want to buy the search terms ‘Goldman Sachs SEC,’ we want you to direct the first hit to our website where we are going to raise campaign funds and awareness of the effort to demonize Wall Street.” Meanwhile, the White House continues to deny that there’s any link between the timing of the SEC suit and its push for regulatory reform.
4/21/2010 – Sean Hannity spoke with Conservative American Paul Ryan about the latest cooking of the books on the jobs numbers! The fuzzy math was needed to make the stimulus look successful according to Big Government. Their report says the administration willfully distorted jobs numbers to make the Obama Porkulus plan look good.
Paul Ryan points out the stimulus plan did not work, no matter how you spin the numbers.
4/21/2010 From a reader at National Review Online comes this observation: “(OBAMA)“Last week, the president offered a more populist spin, saying he wants a nominee who “knows that in a democracy, powerful interests must not be allowed to drown out the voices of ordinary citizens.” (READER) That’s quite a statement from a man who just signed a nation-changing, union/pharma/AMA-backed healthcare takeover while millions across the country protested against it and every single poll showed not only that the ‘ordinary citizens’ didn’t want it done, but we are now getting near 60% who want it repealed. Audacity has been redefined.
Eric Sterner at the Washington Times brings us this pancake house: “When running in the primaries to be the Democratic nominee, he promised to cancel the space-shuttle replacement program, known as Constellation, to pay for new education initiatives. As a candidate in the general election, he famously changed course, promising to accelerate Constellation and close the gap between its arrival and the shuttle’s departure from the nation’s space capabilities. His first-year actions started to make good on the promise. Then, with his fiscal 2011 budget request, the president changed course again, proposing cancellation of Constellation, as he had promised in his earlier incarnation. Truly, it must be said that the president has delivered on his promise of change – he changes every year…”
4/21/2010 Newsbusters and the Chicago Sun Times say the President had a spelling error in a letter he sent to a fan. “President Barack Obama thanked a concerned citizen for giving him advice on stopping smoking. The only problem is it appears Obama wrote “advise” not advice.”
4/22/2010 The Sean Hannity Show: “(SEAN) If you like contests, you may want to enter this one sponsored by the Environment of Protection Agency. The EPA is offering $2,500 of your taxpayer dollars to the individual who makes the best video about why federal regulations are good. The agency’s press release about the contest notes, that “almost every aspect of an individual’s life is touched by federal regulations.” Wait, that is supposed to be good thing? Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is outraged and she is vowing to make an unorthodox entry into the contest, highlighting how regulations can be harmful. She also wrote a letter to the Anointed One arguing against, “the use of taxpayer dollars as prize money. In an era of ever mounting debt, a $2,500 prize for a YouTube video is truly not the best use of taxpayer dollars.” By the way, I’m sure all members of team Obama will make great entries. Is that what they do. They love big government.
4/22/2010 Couric-BS News reports, “When asked if he could see a potential VAT in this nation, the president said: “I know that there’s been a lot of talk around town lately about the value-added tax. That is something that has worked for some countries. It’s something that would be novel for the United States. And before, you know, I start saying ‘this makes sense or that makes sense,’ I want to get a better picture of what our options are,” Obama said. He said his first priority “is to figure out how can we reduce wasteful spending so that, you know, we have a baseline of the core services that we need and the government should provide. And then we decide how do we pay for that.”
–ConservativeAmerican.org wonders if even the President believes himself when he says his “first priority” is to “reduce wasteful spending!” REDUCE IT?! Obama has done nothing but increase it by monumental proportions! He quadrupled the Bush Deficit in about a year! He doesn’t want to reduce government, he wants to increase its power and control over us! It’s the Obama Pattern: Say one thing, Do the other.
4/22/2010 Despite Obama saying he’s open to the so-called VAT Tax, Couric-BS News reports on the flip-flop, “For days, White House spokesmen have said the president has not proposed and is not considering a VAT. “I think I directly answered this the other day by saying that it wasn’t something that the president had under consideration,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters shortly before Obama spoke with CNBC. After the (President’s) interview, White House deputy communications director Jen Psaki said nothing has changed and the White House is “not considering” a VAT.” –ConservativeAmerican.org says that’s as clear as mud!
Remember all the talk of the George W. Bush “Illegal” spying on Americans when he tapped the phone lines of those calling up terrorists overseas? Well, Obama wants to tap your financial lines and monitor every single financial transaction you take part in!! That kind of control is beyond Socialism, folks. This is Marxist and perhaps even Fascist. Karl Rove shared the details of this part of the Obama Finance Reform bill on the Greta Van Susteren Show on Fox last night: “You may not know about this. It creates a new office and gives it a half a billion dollars a year and a huge start-up for computer systems in order to monitor every financial transaction in the United States and to use that data to arrive at policy recommendations about sensible regulation. So they’re literally going to have the capacity to go through everybody’s brokerage account and everybody’s checking account and everybody’s credit card and everybody’s financial transactions and collect — sweep that information and then analyze it. And do we really — I mean, I remember when people got really upset when we were taking a look in the Bush administration at sweeping the electronic communications of suspected terrorists abroad. Now we’re going to be empowering an agency and giving it half a billion dollars a year to peer into our brokerage accounts and our IRAs and our SEPs (ph) and our banking accounts and our — all of our financial accounts and sweep that information in order to do with it whatever they want to do to arrive at, quote, “sensible policy recommendation”! Doesn’t sound to me like a smart thing to do in this environment and this climate.”
Numerous news outlets are reporting now that the ObamaCare Nightmare will actually increase health care costs, not reduce them. To be honest, I hesitate even putting this lie or scandal or whatever on this list. It’s a big yawner. We knew this would happen all along. I doubt there were many beyond the die-hard Progressive-Socialist-Democrats who believed it might actually lower costs. Most of them knew it wouldn’t lower costs too and they just didn’t care. The so-called “rich” are going to pay for it anyway, right? Obama’s own Health & Abortion Services Department came out with this latest report about the huge costs. No smooch for Kathleen Sebelius today.
4/23/2010 New information out today on Fox News suggests Team Obama may not have been honest about its involvement in picking the replacement for the Senate Seat held by Barack Obama. “Among the blacked-out portions are paragraphs about what the attorneys say was Obama’s role in suggesting two candidates for the seat he vacated when he was elected president. The uncovered portion states that even though Obama said in December 2008 that no representative of his had any part in any deals, Blagojevich met with a labor union official who said he was in contact with Obama on Nov. 3, 2008, and had suggested his adviser Valerie Jarrett be appointed to the Senate seat. That unnamed official told the FBI and the United States attorneys that “Obama expressed his belief that [Senate Candidate B] would be a good senator for the people of Illinois and would be a candidate who could win re-election,” the subpoena reads. Jarrett is known to be Senate Candidate B.”
For a short time on 4/23/2010, we listed this item: “ObamaCare Law Allows President to Force healthcare workers into national service against their Will!” We listed it because of interviews given that day by Judge Andrew Napolitano who spoke on Fox News about 5 pages in the ObamaCare Nightmare Law that he said created a “Ready Reserve Corps” of healthcare workers who would train with the military and could be deployed with the troops. You can watch the video below. I’m only leaving this item on the page so that if people search for it, they can learn the truth… as reported by Fellow Fox News guest Michelle Malkin. She says ObamaCare has tons of problems, but this isn’t one of them. This is a creation from 60 years ago that was simply updated. Not a scandal. See our Post here. See Malkin’s post here. To see how we were duped, watch the interview Napolitano did with Shepherd Smith on Fox News…
4/24/2010 Website “Expose Obama” catches this latest misrepresentation. The President claims “most” of his campaign donations came from smaller donors.
The so-called “politifact” website says, “We’ve seen that statement repeated elsewhere, but the evidence doesn’t back it up. In the general election, Obama got about 34 percent of his individual donations from small donors, people who gave $200 or less, according to a report from the Campaign Finance Institute. Another 23 percent of donations came from people who gave between $201 and $999, and another 42 percent from people who gave $1,000 or more.”
4/24/2010 Fox News White House Producer Anne Marie Riha reports, “President Obama Says No Litmus Test on Supreme Court Nominee But… While President Obama says he does not have a litmus test when it comes to choosing a Supreme Court nominee to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, he does say it is very important to him to nominate “somebody who is going to be interpreting our Constitution in a way that takes into account individuals’ rights and that includes women’s rights.” –ConservativeAmerican.org jumps to the bottom line: He HAS a litmus test! Why lie about it?
4/25/2010 Website U.S. Backlash reports on the GM Ads bragging about repaying bailout money, “This time they lied about GM repaying their TARP loan. They ‘repaid’ the loan with other public TARP bailout funds taken from a Treasury escrow account, so GM (Government Motors) did not actually pay back the loan, but just shuffled more public bailout money from one pot to another. “It appears to be nothing more than an elaborate TARP money shuffle,” – Sen. Chuck Grassley – Senate Finance Committee” UPDATE 4/26/10: Fox News reports, “lawmakers, and even the inspector general for the bailout fund GM borrowed from, point out that General Motors only repaid the bailout money by dipping into a separate pot of bailout money. They say the company did not actually use its own earnings to make the early payment and are questioning why executives are making such a big deal out of it…. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., expressed similar concerns Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” saying it’s “misleading” for the administration to claim the company has paid back its loans.”
Health & Abortion Services Director Kathleen Sebelius knew ObamaCare would increase, not lower, health care costs before the vote in Washington and withheld the information until after the vote! The American Spectator notes, “The economic report released last week… had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius’s staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken. “The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote,” says an HHS source. “Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think.” The analysis … set off alarm bells when submitted. “We know a copy was sent to the White House via their legislative affairs staff,” says the HHS staffer, “and there were a number of meetings here almost right after the analysis was submitted to the secretary’s office. Everyone went into lockdown, and people here were too scared to go public with the report.” UPDATE 4/29/2010: The Week website has a post saying the Spectator is all wrong about this story. You can read it here.
4/27/2010 Ed Morrissey at Hot Air: “…it may have been McConnell’s ability to turn those cases into cash for the Democratic machine that got him his nomination, as the Providence Journal reports: ‘McConnell Jr., President Obama’s choice for the U.S. District Court in Rhode Island, is one of the top election campaign contributors among the nearly 1,500 nominees to the federal courts since the late 1980s. McConnell, 51, a Providence lawyer, has given at least $432,456 to Democratic House, Senate and presidential campaigns since the 1990 election cycle…’ MORRISSEY: Granting appointments to big donors is hardly new in politics, but mostly those are limited to term-limited positions such as ambassadorships or US Attorneys, to name a couple of examples. A position on the federal court is a lifetime appointment, as well as a position of trust that should require some sense of independence. Serving up a lifetime sinecure to a big donor should raise some eyebrows.”
4/27/2010 The Daily Beast has a good article online detailing seven of the hundreds of Obama broken promises. They even had one we missed! “President Obama’s new plan for space exploration broke one of his campaign pledges—a man on the moon. In policy papers put out during his 2008 run, Obama’s campaign endorsed a new lunar mission by 2020. But this year’s budget for NASA will not fund such a program, which the administration deemed prohibitively expensive. A number of former astronauts, including Neil Armstrong, have criticized the new plan for ceding lunar exploration to other countries. Obama’s NASA will look into missions to an asteroid and eventually Mars instead.”
4/27/2010 The AP and Yahoo! News report Obama seems only to be seeking votes from minorities! “(OBAMA) It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos, and women, who powered our victory in 2008, stand together once again,” he said in the video mailed to Democratic activists… David Plouffe, who masterminded Obama’s 2008 election win, based on historic turnout from young, African American, independent and Hispanic voters, said in an email to supporters that he had prepared a “comprehensive electoral plan.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes they can’t even get this story correct. You can just as easily make the argument that white male voters (41% of them voted for Obama) put this man in the White House. So if he is only interested in “African Americans, Latinos, and women,” is he the President of ALL OF THE PEOPLE or just the minority special interest groups? Instead of bringing the country together, Obama continues to divide us. It’s part of his plan of chaos, designed to break down and destroy the very fabric of our freedoms and instead replace it with redistribution of wealth.
4/27/2010 From the White House: (OBAMA) ““I am deeply disappointed that Senate Republicans voted in a block against allowing a public debate on Wall Street reform to begin. Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether.” — ConservativeAmerican.org calls that a brazen statement coming from the man who pushed the Socialist ObamaCare takeover behind closed doors where health industry lobbyists helped draft the plan! Clearly, lying is part of Barack Obama’s political strategy. He assumes most of the American public is stupid and will simply believe what he says (even when he contradicts himself!) because he is the President.
4/27/2010 David Fredosso at the San Francisco Examiner: “When reporters ask him about the promise, he says they’re just playing some “old Washington game.” …(OBAMA)”That’s an old Washington game…so I wanted to deliver this message today: we’re not playing that game.” –ConservativeAmerican.org points out that to President Obama, keeping a promise is just a “game.” Living up to your word is just some “old Washington game.” This President counts daily on people believing his words (lies). Now he assures the nation, that his words are… well, just words.
4/28/2010 Amy Ridenour’s National Center Blog reports, “President Obama told a crowd in Ottumwa, Iowa: ‘Now,suddenly, if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to get harassed — that’s something that could potentially happen… That’s not the right way to go.’ – A lie, actually, unless you steal the ice cream or commit some other crime while doing so, and are here illegally, in which case, you have every reason to expect the federal government Obama heads to “harass” you as well. The federal government’s Secure Communities Program checks the fingerprints of suspects during the process of a normal arrest, even when they are arrested by police officers in Arizona.” — ConservativeAmerican.org adds that Rush Limbaugh today pointed out you have to show your “papers” every time you are pulled over by the police.
Greenpeace says Obama has broken his promise to save the Whales! I’m not making this up. Wait… does Greenpeace say he wants to re-start whaling? Yes, yes they do. So, according to Greenpeace, Obama wants to reopen commercial whaling. Obama wants to kill the whales not save them!! Hey, if he does make it legal to kill whales again, maybe we can start with that Killer Whale (actually in the dolphin family, I know) at Sea World that keeps killing people! Just a thought.
4/29/2010 Via Sean Hannity and Hot Air comes word of this Obama gaffe. Or was it an honest admission? The guy who makes more than $5-million a year says there is a point where “you’ve made enough money!” So much for free market capitalism! OBAMA: “We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.” He doesn’t begrudge success that’s “fairly” earned (and he decides what is fair!) but he flip-flops in the next sentence to say at some point he’ll determine, you’ve made enough money! Here’s audio…
Fox News reports, “Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Friday warned Congress not to mess with the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy — the ban on gays serving openly in the military until he can come up with a plan for dealing with potential opposition in the ranks. In a strongly worded letter obtained by Fox News, Gates told the House Armed Services Committee that forcing policy changes on the military before it’s ready would “send a very damaging message to our men and women in uniform. I strongly oppose any legislation that seeks to change this policy prior to the completion of this vital assessment process,” Gates wrote to the panel’s chairman, Missouri Democrat Ike Skelton. “Our military must be afforded the opportunity to inform us of their concerns, insights and suggestions if we are to carry out this change successfully.”
5/3/2010 The Globe and the National Enquirer are writing in their publications about a supposed cheating scandal involving the President meeting a woman named Vera Baker at a Washington, D.C. Hotel. The website Concrave says the Enquirer’s traffic is up 1,890% with this story! Now, before you laugh this off as “just” from these grocery store publications, remember that it was publications such as these that broke the story about John Edwards cheating on his wife. They brought him down and ended his political future. While ConservativeAmerican.org takes no position on this reported scandal at this early point, it is worth noting here because people are buzzing about it. If more evidence comes out, we may change our position.
The National Enquirer is reporting, “A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions. Now, the investigators are searching for a hotel surveillance videotape.
While Baker has insisted in the past that “nothing happened” between them, reports reveal that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair. Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says in 2004 that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous in a Washington hotel where Obama was staying. An ENQUIRER reporter has confirmed the limo driver’s account of the secret 2004 rendezvous and has also learned that on-site hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence to the investigation.” — Meanwhile the Globe is running a picture of Vera Baker on its cover…
The U.K. Daily Mail is reporting that the entire story is nothing more than a dirty smear attack. However, they note: “The woman was purportedly sidelined from her duties after Senator Obama’s wife, Michelle, became convinced that he had developed a personal friendship with her. The allegations were initially circulated in August, just two weeks before the convention at which Obama finally beat his opponent for the Democratic Party nomination, Hillary Clinton. The woman, now 33, vigorously denies the vicious and unsubstantiated gossip.” — ConservativeAmerican.org urges readers to take caution on this one. There’s a chance the Daily Mail and Vera Baker are correct and this entire story may be nonsense designed only to harm President Obama at the expense of Baker’s reputation. For now, please presume she is innocent of any wrong-doing. UPDATE 5/12/10: Website “Bitten and Bound” agrees with our take that while there may not be anything to this story, you do have to factor in the John Edwards story. UPDATE 5/16/2010: Hollywood says Michelle Obama is “Furious and Humiliated” about this story! UPDATE 5/17/10: Sandra Rose says this Scandal is Threatening Obama’s Presidency! She writes that this, “helps explain why Michelle told People magazine her marriage to Barack wasn’t “perfect.” I knew this would happen eventually since we all learned from the Tiger Woods scandal that narcissists frequently help themselves to available vajayjay as a means of proving their manhood through narcissistic supply (NS). As I’ve explained to you in the past, there are two types of malignant narcissists: the cerebral narcissist who derives his narcissistic supply (NS) from his intellectual achievements, and the somatic narcissist who derives his/her supply from his or her body. Obama is a mixture of the two… ” UPDATE 5/18/10: New Globe Cover also features this story…
UPDATE: 11/12/10 – Courthouse News Service says Baker now has filed a defamation suit.
“MIAMI (CN) – President Obama’s political rivals fabricated a sex scandal about a former campaign worker, the woman says in a defamation complaint against the Globe tabloid. Vera Baker says the “story came from one of Obama’s political opponents. Defendants had a complete disregard for the harm that the story would cause Baker because it was looking for anything they could use to sully the reputation of President Obama, even if it meant harming others.” Baker says the scandal sheet published an article in its May 10 issue in which the “defendants deliberately intended to convey the impression that Baker and President Obama had a sexual encounter at a hotel, which was known to be false…”
5/4/2010 Attorney General Eric Holder did a flip-flop on the Obama Administration policy of not using the word “terrorist.” He referred to Faisal Shahzad, the man authorities are charging with attempting to blow up a car bomb in NY Times Square, as a “terrorist.” He knows darn well he’s supposed to call him an “Agent of Man-Caused Disaster!” Why is it when a foreign terrorist does something bad, Team Obama calls it a “man-caused disaster,” and when a naturalized U.S. citizen, a Pakistani-American, is accused they call him a terrorist? I guess it fits the whole, “Americans are the REAL bad guys mold. No matter the reason, Holder Flip-Flopped… again.
5/5/2010 – Associated Content reported 5/4/10: “Police, who knew the identity of Shahzad at the time he boarded the plane, waited until the last minute to apprehend Shahzad to see if he was going to have anyone joining him on that flight. This report is conflicting with the original report that they apprehended Shahzad as he attempted to board the plane.” Rush Limbaugh indicated the FBI had initially made this claim, only later acknowledging they lost him! NewsCore and Fox News reported later: “An FBI team tracking the man suspected of the failed Times Square car bomb attack lost him for crucial hours before he drove to John F. Kennedy Airport and boarded a plane to Dubai, The (London) Times reported Wednesday. The FBI team did not know Faisal Shahzad, an American of Pakistani descent, was planning to fly abroad until a final passenger list was sent to officials at the Customs and Border Protection agency minutes before the Emirates flight EK202 was due to take off, intelligence officials said Tuesday.”
5/6/2010 Fox News reports President Obama suddenly is conveying a sense of urgency to getting his Amnesty and Open Borders Reform passed. “(OBAMA): “[I]t can be done. And it needs to be done… I want to begin work this year, and I want Democrats and Republicans to work with me because we’ve got to stay true to who we are– a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.” That sense of urgency differs from the way some have interpreted Mr. Obama’s remarks last week on the topic when he said, “It’s a matter of political will. Now, look, we’ve gone through a very tough year, and I’ve been working Congress pretty hard. So I know there may not be an appetite immediately to dive into another controversial issue.” — ConservativeAmerican.org says it looks like Rahm “never let a good crisis go to waste” Emanuel got to the Commander in Chief on this one.
5/6/2010 Speaking at a Cinco de Mayo celebration, President Barack Obama is quoted as saying, “We can’t turn law-abiding American citizens, and law-abiding immigrants, into subjects of suspicion and abuse.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes the President is fully aware that the Arizona law has nothing to do with law-abiding citizens or immigrants. His statement is a lie and deliberate attempt to stir up racial problems. The Arizona law has everything to do with immigrants who are NOT “law-abiding.” Obama hopes to use the present turmoil (no crisis should be wasted) to boost his chances of passing amnesty programs and keeping the border with Mexico wide open. While conservatives typically get hammered as ‘anti-Latino’ for wanting the federal law enforced, that simply isn’t true. Socialist-Democrats try to position themselves as pro-Latino by suggesting the law should not be enforced when in fact the only thing they care about is securing the illegal votes of illegal immigrants come election time. They try to position the issue as a racial one: they’re for Latino’s and the bad guys are against them! Nonsense! They don’t care about anything other than using the illegal immigrants (regardless of color) to allow them to cheat to win elections.
5/6/2010 Talk about unpresidential! Fox News reports: “Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter, in his book “The Promise: President Obama, Year One,” to be released May 18, quotes the president as saying that Republican opposition to the economic stimulus package “helped create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans,” according to a Washington Post report on the book.” –ConservativeAmerican.org points out if you’re interested in this book, you’ll also want to check out:

5/6/2010 National Review Online: “…the State Department won’t even designate these independent Taliban entities as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. Here is the FTO list. No Taliban … even though we’ve been at war with the Afghan Taliban for nearly nine years. (About a year ago, Fred [Gedrich] wrote an article for the New York Daily News calling for designation of the Taliban — so far, to no avail.)”
5/7/2010 Delaware Online: “Nationally, state budget cuts could account for the loss of up to 300,000 education jobs. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan told the Senate budget appropriations committee that President Obama’s administration is “gravely concerned” that state and local budget cuts would put “our hard-earned reforms at risk.” The Loop 21 reminds us that back in October, the stimulus was hailed as rosy for teachers: “The White House released a report Monday that indicates the $787 billion stimulus package helped states keep or add up to 250,000 jobs in education, including teaching jobs. Just last week, the Department of Education said some states are using the money to keep their education budgets at the level of a few years ago, instead of as a way of increasing their budgets. (The Associated Press)” Part of how the stimulus plan was sold to Americans was with the claim that it would “create or save” hundreds of thousands of teaching jobs. So much for that broken promise!
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.
