obama-fading-102x140The 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. Not responsible for any broken or out-of-date links. They worked when we posted them. Some may redirect you to the wayback machine.

  1. Obama Lies to Congress # 6 -“Strong Majority” supports Obamacare! 9/9/9 – Obama claimed in his address that the “strong majority of Americans” support health care reform. Every national poll contradicts that statement. Mr. President, the nation wants you to work on the economy. Not destroy our healthcare.
  2. Obama Lies to Congress # 7 -Public Option is not a Government Takeover! 9/9/9 – Obama tells congress his Obamacare Public Option is not a government takeover of healthcare. Shikha Dalmia of Forbes has done a great job explaining these big healthcare lies. “Obama has repeatedly claimed that forcing private plans to compete with a public plan will simply “keep them honest” and give patients more options–not lead to a full-blown, Canadian-style, single-payer monopoly. As I argued in my previous column, this is wishful thinking given that government programs such as Medicare have a history of controlling costs by underpaying providers, who make up the losses by charging private plans more. Any public plan modeled after Medicare will greatly increase this forced subsidy, eventually driving private plans out of business, even if that weren’t Obama’s intention. But, as it turns out, it very much is his intention. Before he decided to run for office–and even during the initial days of his campaign–Obama repeatedly said that he was in favor of a single-payer system. What’s more, University of California, Berkeley Professor Jacob Hacker, who is a key influence on the Obama administration, is on tape explicitly boasting that a public plan is a means for creating a single-payer system. “It’s not a Trojan horse,” he quips, “it’s just right there.”
  3. Obama Lies to Congress # 8 -Obama Lied About Insurance Case! 9/9/9 Sweetness & Light: “One man from Illinois lost his coverage in the middle of chemotherapy because his insurer found that he hadn’t reported gallstones that he didn’t even know about. They delayed his treatment, and he died because of it.” This is the sad story of Mr. Otto Raddatz, a case that Mr. Obama has cited several times before, including in his August 16th editorial in the New York Times. For the record, however, the case is not exactly the way Mr. Obama has characterized it, at least according to the sworn testimony of Mr. Raddatz’s sister…Mr. Raddatz’s lawyer sister contacted the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. They investigated and found that the doctor who did the CT scans could not remember whether he had ever told Mr. Raddatz about his findings. Consequently, the insurance company overturned their original decision to rescind her brother’s coverage, and he was reinstated in the words of his sister, “without [any] lapse.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes: Remember when Obama said others were not telling the truth about health care? He even accused Sarah Palin of lying. He should look in the mirror once in a while.
  4. Obama Lies to Congress # 9 -Obama Lied About the Cost of the Obamacare Nightmare! 9/9/9 The Media Research Center caught another lie in Obama’s talk. Brent Bozell notes, “”Barack Obama will not stop committing serial dishonesty with the American people until the media expose his false figures and bogus exaggerations for what they are: fraudulent scare tactics. “Last night Obama told a litany of lies. He said the total cost of his health reform would be $900 billion over ten years, but even the government-run Congressional Budget Office found it would cost $1.6 trillion.”
  5. Obama Lies to Congress # 10 -Obama says he’s not trying to build “An Entirely New System from Scratch!” 9/9/9 Real Clear Politics adds this lie to the list: “I believe it makes more sense to build on what works and fix what doesn’t, rather than try to build an entirely new system from scratch. And that is precisely what those of you in Congress have tried to do over the past several months. Does it take a thousand pages of legislation to not “disrupt one-sixth of our economy”? The reality is that the proposals he advocates would create a vast new bureaucracy from scratch, with sweeping powers to regulate private health-insurance plans-eventually including employer-provided plans-and forcing individual health-insurance plans to be offered on a government-controlled “exchange.” It is a plan for the comprehensive restructuring of the health-insurance industry-but Obama wants you to think that he’s not really doing anything. Which makes you realize that he doesn’t want to you notice or think too hard about what he is doing.”
  6. Obama Lies to Congress # 11 -Obama Claims ObamaCare Nightmare is Bipartisan! 9/9/9 Real Clear Politics catches this distortion of the truth: “This is another attempt to deflect scrutiny by claiming that everything he is proposing is safe, bland, anodyne. Thus, his plan “incorporates ideas from many of the people in this room tonight-Democrats and Republicans.” Which explains why Obama has so few Republican votes that his allies in Congress are now talking about ramming the bill through, in a dubious parliamentary maneuver, on Democratic votes alone.”
  7. Obama Lies to Congress # 12 – Claims He’s Always been for Health Choices!! 9/9/9 Real Clear Politics: “Here’s a tip: when Barack Obama says, “So let me set the record straight,” he is about to lie to you about his past. Thus, in rebutting the claim that he wants a “government takeover” of medicine, he assures us that “My guiding principle is, and always has been, that consumers do better when there is choice and competition.” So how is it that he was recorded only six years ago describing himself as an advocate of a Canadian style “single payer” system-the very opposite of “choice and competition”?” — And, if he really wants choices...let people buy insurance accross state lines!
  8. Obama Lies to Congress # 13- About Buying Insurance on Your own 9/9/9 National Review Online did its own fact-checking on the Obama address to congress and they added a few to our list on 9/28/9. OBAMA: “Buying insurance on your own costs you three times as much as the coverage you get from your employer.” The Congressional Budget Office writes, “Premiums for policies purchased in the individual insurance market are, on average, much lower — about one-third lower for single coverage and one-half lower for family policies.” It is true that individual insurance policies are generally 30 percent less comprehensive than employer-provided insurance, and comparable individual policies are about twice as expensive. But much of the extra cost is a function of the tax penalty on purchasing such insurance and the stunted market that penalty has yielded.”
  9. Obama Lies to Congress # 14- About Americans Losing Insurance Coverage 9/9/9 National Review Online add another to the “Joe Wilson ‘You Lie!’ List!” – OBAMA: “And every day, 14,000 Americans lose their coverage.” The paper that generated this estimate assumed that two months of severe job losses would continue forever. Applying that paper’s methodology to a broader period of rising unemployment (January 2008 through August 2009) produces a figure below 9,000.”
  10. Obama Lies to Congress # 15 – About Why Employees Have to Pay More of their Insurance Costs 9/9/9 National Review Online: OBAMA: “Rising costs are “why so many employers . . . are forcing their employees to pay more for insurance.” Perhaps no other issue generates as much of a consensus among health-care economists as this one: The “employer’s share” of employees’ health-care costs comes out of those employees’ wages, not out of profits. In this comment and in five others in his speech, Obama contradicts that basic truth. Employers aren’t forcing their employees to pick up a larger share of the bill because they can’t. Workers are already paying the entire bill.”
  11. Obama Lies to Congress # 16 – Saying U.S. Business can’t compete globally because of Rising Health Insurance Costs 9/9/9 National Review Online reports even Obama appointees Peter Orszag and Christina Romer think this statement is bogus!!! OBAMA: “Rising costs are “why American business that compete internationally . . . are at a huge disadvantage.” False. The rising cost of health benefits does not increase employers’ labor costs because, again, wages adjust downward to compensate. The Congressional Budget Office, under the leadership of Obama’s OMB director, Peter Orszag, confirmed that health-care costs do not hinder competitiveness. Obama economic aide Christina Romer has called this competitiveness argument “schlocky.”
  12. Obama Lies to Congress # 17- The Hidden Growing Tax Lie 9/9/9 National Review Online OBAMA: “Those of us with health insurance are also paying a hidden and growing tax for those without it — about $1,000 per year that pays for somebody else’s emergency room and charitable care.” That number comes from a left-wing advocacy group. A Kaiser Family Foundation study debunked the group’s analysis, reaching an estimate closer to $200 per year for a family. The CBO report mentioned above reached the same conclusion.”
  13. Obama Lies to Congress # 18 – About Special Interests Fighting the ObamaCare Nightmare 9/9/9 National Review Online: OBAMA: “I won’t stand by while the special interests use the same old tactics to keep things exactly the way they are.” Who are these special interests? In case Obama hadn’t noticed, everyone from the drug-makers to the unions to the insurance companies he demonizes are spending millions to build momentum for his version of reform — in no small part because Obama has promised to buy them off with middle-class tax dollars. When President Obama makes a factual claim about health-care policy, he does not deserve the benefit of the doubt about its accuracy. We do not know whether he has been badly misinformed or is deliberately trying to mislead. Either way, he cannot be trusted to reform American health care” The National Review Online article was written by Michael F. Cannon, director of health-policy studies at the Cato Institute, and Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor at National Review.
  14. Obama Lies to Congress # 19 9/10/9 – Reason Magazine reports, “The lies last night began in Obama’s opening paragraph. “When I spoke here last winter,” he began, “credit was frozen. And our financial system was on the verge of collapse.” In fact, Obama spoke on Feb. 24, at least six weeks after credit markets began to thaw, and one week after he proclaimed that the passage of his $787 billion stimulus marked “the beginning of the end, the beginning of what we need to do to create jobs for Americans.” Obama’s speech that day wasn’t about staving off a collapse, it was about cleaning up the mess and tackling long-ignored issues. Such as health care.”
  15. Obama’s Lies to Congress # 20 – Numbers Don’t Add Up! 9/10/9 – Reason.com reports, “the president’s numbers didn’t add up. “There may be those—particularly the young and healthy—who still want to take the risk and go without coverage,” he warned, in a passage defending compulsory insurance. “The problem is, such irresponsible behavior costs all the rest of us money. If there are affordable options and people still don’t sign up for health insurance, it means we pay for those people’s expensive emergency room visits.” No, it means that, on balance, the healthy young don’t pay for the unhealthy old. The whole point of forcing vigorous youth to buy insurance is using their cash and good actuarials to bring down the costs of covering the less fortunate. Such fudges reveal a politician who, for whatever reason, feels like he can’t be honest about the real-world costs of expanding health care.”
  16. Obama Lies to Congress # 21 – “Special Interests” involved in Health Care Debate 9/10/9 – Reason.com reports, “Again last night, Obama invoked the boogeyman of “special interests” who “lie” in order “to keep things exactly the way they are,” despite the fact that the special interests in this case are lining up to support the president, and that the critics of his plan tend to bemoan, not defend, the status quo. Opponents of his plan, he said, were “ideological”; Ted Kennedy’s support for health care reform, meanwhile, “was born not of some rigid ideology, but of his own experience.” Obama said his door was “always open” to those bringing “a serious set of proposals,” and he slammed that door shut on any attempts to break the almost universally unloved link between employment and insurance. He yearned to “replace acrimony with civility,” then got Democrats stomping on their feet with attacks against the Iraq War and “tax breaks for the wealthy.” The center of the debate, as always, was wherever he chose to stand.”
  17. Obama Flip Flops on Congress # 1 – You can Keep Your Plan & Doctor 9/9/9 – Obama used to spread the lie that “you can keep your plan and your doctor.” Major lefty news outlets have even pointed out this one is nothing he has control over. Now he flip flopped and says instead, “Nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have.” That’s the catch. They won’t be required, but economics will result in many companies taking the bait and offering employees only the public option. That means your doctor and your plan would change and you would have nothing to say about it. This one is just a promise he cannot make. UPDATE 9/30/9: The National Review Online adds: “But even on its own terms, Obama’s claim is false. The CBO estimates that slashing payments to Medicare Advantage, as Obama advocates, “would reduce the extra benefits that would be made available to beneficiaries through Medicare Advantage plans.” It would also cause some people to lose their coverage.”
  18. Obama Flip Flops on Congress # 2 How many Uninsured are There? Obama Loses 16-million People! 9/9/9 – From the AP:“OBAMA: “There are now more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage.”THE FACTS: Obama time and again has referred to the number of uninsured as 46 million, a figure based on year-old Census data. The new number is based on an analysis by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, which concluded that about two-thirds of Americans without insurance are poor or near poor. “These individuals are less likely to be offered employer-sponsored coverage or to be able to afford to purchase their own coverage,” the report said. By using the new figure, Obama avoids criticism that he is including individuals, particularly healthy young people, who choose not to obtain health insurance.” — So I guess there are millions without health insurance, give or take,…I dunno,…say 16-MILLION PEOPLE!!!
  19. Obama Flip Flops on Congress # 3 – Plays both sides of issue within three sentences!! 9/9/9 Obama tells congress, “No bureaucrat will come between you and your care. I will ensure it.” Two sentences later, he says he will appoint a commission of doctors whoo will determine what is waste and then get rid of it. So if he thinks it is wasteful, you won’t get the care. Hmmmm….that sure puts a bureaucrat between you and your care!
  20. Palin catches Obama Flip Flop on Congress # 4- “Scare Tactics” 9/9/9 From Sarah Palin: “Our objections to the Democrats’ health care proposals are not mere “bickering” or “games.” They are not an attempt to “score short term political points.” And it’s hard to listen to the President lecture us not to use “scare tactics” when in the next breath he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass.
  21. Obama Flip Flops on Congress # 5- No Changes to Your Plan?! Your costs will Skyrocket! 9/9/9 Real Clear Politics wants you to note: “while claiming he won’t change your existing coverage, Obama goes on to detail a whole set of changes to that coverage that will be mandated by government: What this plan will do is to make the insurance you have work better for you. Under this plan, it will be against the law for insurance companies to deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition…. They will no longer be able to place some arbitrary cap on the amount of coverage you can receive in a given year or a lifetime. We will place a limit on how much you can be charged for out-of-pocket expenses…. And insurance companies will be required to cover, with no extra charge, routine checkups and preventive care. And notice what each of these regulations would do: it would increase costs for private health-insurance companies. They would have to pay more to cover people with pre-existing conditions; more for people who go over their yearly or lifetime caps, more to make up for the limits on your out-of-pocket expenses, and more for routine checkups. Oh yes, and later on, Obama explains that his bill will be paid for by increased taxes on drug companies and insurance companies. There is no way to increase all of these costs for the insurers without causing a corresponding increase in health-insurance premiums.”
  22. Obama’s Scandalous Admission to Congress! 9/9/9 In one speech, the President said both that,”I will not back down! If you can’t find affordable insurance, we will provide you with a choice (public option)”…and that the public option plan is bad for the nation! If it is so bad, why won’t he back down? Speaking to congress he said those on the left want a single-payer public option and those on the right want companies to stop providing health insurance and instead have people buy their own. He then said that EITHER ONE (So, INCLUDING the public option) “Represents a RADICAL shift that would disrupt the health care most people currently have!” Nancy Pelosi stood up and clapped to that! She applauded the President saying a public option represents a radical shift that would disrupt health care! Amazing.

  24. Obama Wants to Tax Your Soda! 9/9/9 C-BS (C for Couric, BS for what she does) reports: “In a newly-released interview with Men’s Health magazine, President Obama has said he is open to the idea of a tax on soda and other sugary drinks, which some have pointed to as a way to help pay for health care reform. “I actually think it’s an idea that we should be exploring,” Obama said in the interview. “There’s no doubt that our kids drink way too much soda.”
  25. Obama Lie About The Urgency of Healthcare 9/12/9 Conservative American Thomas Sowell points out at Town Hall: “One plain fact should outweigh all the words of Barack Obama and all the impressive trappings of the setting in which he says them: He tried to rush Congress into passing a massive government takeover of the nation’s medical care before the August recess– for a program that would not take effect until 2013! Whatever President Obama is, he is not stupid. If the urgency to pass the medical care legislation was to deal with a problem immediately, then why postpone the date when the legislation goes into effect for years— more specifically, until the year after the next Presidential election? If this is such an urgently needed program, why wait for years to put it into effect? And if the public is going to benefit from this, why not let them experience those benefits before the next Presidential election?…The only reasonable alternative seems to be that he wanted to get this massive government takeover of medical care passed into law before the public understood what was in it. Moreover, he wanted to get re-elected in 2012 before the public experienced what its actual consequences would be.”
  26. Obama’s Acorn group exposed as a Fraud!
  27. 9/12/9 Barack Obama got his start in being a community agitator with the group called “Acorn.” In example after example, they have been exposed to be nothing more than a fraud and a cover for the democrat party’s efforts to cheat to win elections. CNN reports Obama’s Acorn group is in even more trouble now, “Two employees at the Baltimore, Maryland, branch of the liberal community organizing group ACORN were caught on tape allegedly offering advice to a pair posing as a pimp and prostitute on setting up a prostitution ring and evading the IRS… The video shows the pair approaching two women working at the ACORN Baltimore office and asking them for advice on how to set up a prostitution ring involving more than a dozen underage girls from El Salvador.One of the ACORN workers suggests that Giles refer to herself as a “performing artist” on tax forms and declare some of the girls as dependents to receive child tax credits. “Stop saying prostitution,” the woman, identified by the filmmaker as an ACORN tax expert, tells Giles. The other woman tells them, “You want to keep them clean … make sure they go to school.” UPDATE 9/14/9: Not only Baltimore, but Washington D.C. and New York…Even More Acorn people advising others to break the law! Will the Obama Justice Department ever investigate Acorn?? UPDATE 9/15/9Republican Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama calls for “an “immediate and thorough” investigation of (ACORN). House Republicans also wrote a letter to President Obama asking him to use his authority to end all federal funding for ACORN and break all government ties with the organization…The (request) comes after the Senate voted 83-7 Monday to cut off the group from Housing and Urban Development grants…9 lawmakers, 8 of them Republican, did not vote. Sens. Roland Burris, D-Ill.; Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Bob Casey, D-Pa.; Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.; Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., voted against the Senate measure. Meanwhile, Conservative American Ken Blackwell writes at Fox News that “Now that a third ACORN video has surfaced, a pattern emerges of ACORN workers willing to help people engage in prostitution, tax fraud, housing fraud, and even human trafficking. Under federal law, a RICO (the Racketeer Influenced & Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation is now warranted. Three strikes and you’re out, ACORN.”And there’s brand new ACORN video!

    UPDATE 9/16/9 The arrogant and retiring Charles “Hubris” Gibson of ABCDEmocrat News tells a radio reporter he is not even familiar with this story! UPDATE 9/17/9 Politicians are running from Acorn now as congress also votes to cut some funding from the scandal-plagued Obama group. UPDATE 9/28/9 – The IRS already cut its ties with ACORN and now Fox says Bank of American has also dumped ACORN. They elected their hero and now are falling apart? UPDATE 10/6/9 The Palin-Hating U.S. Democrat News and World Socialist Report magazine says, “ACORN Scandal COULD Embarrass Obama!” UPDATE 11/28/9: Politico says Obama’s Justice Department has ruled the Fed can still give money to his pals at ACORN! UPDATE 3/23/2010: Reuters reports ACORN is Dead! Well, not really: “Most of the 20 chapters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which endorsed President Barack Obama during his 2008 campaign, have disbanded on their own and reorganized under new names, a source within the group said.” UPDATE 4/22/2010:Fox News reports the Obama ACORN Chieftess Bertha Lewis calls Tea Partier’s a “Bowel Movement” and says Socialism is A-Okay with her! “Any group that says, ‘I’m young, I’m Democratic, and I’m a socialist,’ is all right with me. You know that’s no light thing to do — to actually say, I’m a socialist…”

  28. Obama’s Census Bureau Dumps Obama’s Acorn! 9/12/9 Barack Obama was a community organizer for Acorn and promised to give them a prominent voice in his administration. Now, from the New York Times yesterday, “The Census Bureau on Friday severed its ties with Acorn, a community organization that Republicans have accused of voter-registration fraud….“It is clear that Acorn’s affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 census efforts,” (Census Director Robert) Groves wrote.” –Republicans have been pressing for this to happen. Wonder what Obama’s Acorn pals think of him now that he had his Census pals fire Acorn?!
  29. Obama Imposes Tariffs on China to help pass his Obamacare Nightmare?! 9/12/9 Barack Obama just slapped China by imposing new import tarrifs. Breaking News 24/7 reports the move was likely made to keep his union pals happy so he can get his Obamacare Nightmare passed! “While the White House announcement late Friday is likely to placate union supporters important to the president’s health care push at home, it could alienate the strategically important Asian powerhouse and trading partner. Chen Deming, China’s minister of commerce, said the Chinese government strongly opposed the tariffs, calling them a serious case of protectionism that will not only harm China-U.S. trade relations, but also the interests of the United States. He said the U.S. had broken its promise at the G-20 summit and the action violated World Trade Organization rules.” InvestmentU calls this “Tiregate.”
  30. Team Obama in Trouble for Dropping Voter Intimidation Case against Democrat New Black Panthers
  31. 9/13/9 You might remember this…


    Well, did you know Team Obama’s Acting Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Loretta King, saw too it that the federal case against the panthers was dropped? Jennifer Rubin at Pajamas Media has an excellent story today Eric Holder’s Justice Department has refused to cooperate with the Civil Rights Commission on the case: “The Commission on Friday voted unanimously by a 5-0 margin to pursue the year-long study and to set up a separate subcommittee to handle sensitive discovery issues. The Commission also agreed to send a letter replying to the Justice Department’s announced refusal to cooperate with the Commission’s investigation. It seems that we are therefore headed for a clash between the administration, which has bragged about its transparency, and the Commission. It remains unclear whether the Justice Department will continue to stonewall as some fear or ask the president to invoke executive privilege to block the DOJ’s cooperation with the Commission’s investigation, thereby significantly impeding the only truly independent entity examining this issue…some Republicans are not willing to give up all leverage over Holder’s Justice Department. To that end, a hold has been placed, it is believed by Sen. Tom Coburn, on the nomination of Civil Rights Division head Thomas Perez.” Read Rubin’s entire piece here. UPDATE 10/24/9: From The American Spectator: “They won’t turn over information about the New Black Panther decision. They lie about who made the decision.” UPDATE 6/30/2010: Fox News: “A former Justice Department attorney who quit his job to protest the Obama administration’s handling of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons. J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia and a conservative blogger for Pajamas Media, says he and the other Justice Department lawyers working on the case were ordered to dismiss it. “I mean we were told, ‘Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,'” Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.” UPDATE 7/6/10:J. Christian Adams testifies before Congressional Civil Rights Commission stating that this case was dropped for political reasons. “In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims. …Adams, …said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid. “It is false,” Adams said of the claim. “We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified. UPDATE 7/7/10:The Wall Street Journal now calls this “A Very Obama Scandal.” — And a Civil Rights Panel “plans to issue a new round of subpoenas and call for a separate federal probe following explosive testimony from an ex-Justice official, a commissioner said. As the case heats up, members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights may even travel to South Carolina to track down one witness… Commissioner Ashley Taylor said the panel will send out a letter as early as Wednesday calling for the Justice Department to open an investigation into the charge. The letter will go to Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, who in May told the panel to bring any such claims “to our attention” if there’s evidence. “I think (the testimony) provided the evidence of the policy he said he was unaware of,” Taylor said, calling Adams’ allegations “serious” and “shocking.” …The Obama administration initially pursued the case, winning a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panther members did not appear in court. But then the administration moved to dismiss the charges the following month after getting one of the New Black Panther members to agree to not carry a “deadly weapon” near a polling place until 2012.” — ConservativeAmerican.org asks the obvious quesiton; Is it okay for him to carry a deadly weapon near a polling place in 2012?! This case proves again that Obama is an anti-white racist. He has appointed a racist to the U.S. Supreme Court (who believes wise Latina women make better decisions than white men ever could) and a racist as Attorney General, in the form of Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder. You don’t appoint people like that unless you agree with them. UPDATE 7/15/10:Fox News is reporting the chair of the bi-partisan commission has now sent a letter to Mr. Perez asking him to being a federal probe into why these charges were dropped. Don’t hold your breath. UPDATE 7/20/10: Fox Reports the New Black Panther leader made a song about being trained by Osama Bin Laden! “The New Black Panther Party claims to believe in nonviolence, but a song performed by (King Samir) Shabazz’s group, Coup Da’Ta, in 2004 includes descriptions of violent attacks against police as well as anti-Semitic statements and claims of having trained with both the most-wanted terrorist in the world and the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. “This is the chorus of “Damn Rebels,” repeated seven times in the song: “I’m a warrior trained by Khalid Muhammad I’m a terrorist trained by Usama bin Laden Demolitionist, breaking down the walls of the rotten Never hit and miss So, first time, take out your target” UPDATE 10/22/10: The Washington Post reports a few more details come out about nasty emails at the DOJ over the decision to drop this case.

  32. Hillary wants Team Obama’s Scandalous Use of Contractors “Reviewed” 9/14/9 Reuters and the New York Times: “The U.S. State Department will review its use of private contractors at overseas embassies after a scandal over sexual hazing by security guards at the U.S. embassy in Kabul, an official said on Monday. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked both the State Department and USAID, the government’s foreign assistance arm, to take an “across the board” look at how contractors are used and prepare to do more of the jobs themselves, department spokesman Ian Kelly said.”
  33. Obama breaks Pledge to “Rein in” the Banks 9/14/9 From the CounterPunch political newsletter: “Like every other promise of substance, Obama’s pledge to “rein in” the banks has fallen by the wayside; the well-timed rhetoric smoothed over public tensions and now business is back to usual. The New York Times remarks: “Backstopped by huge federal guarantees [the bank bailouts], the biggest banks have restructured only around the edges…pay is already returning to pre-crash levels, topped by the 30,000 employees of Goldman Sachs, who are on track to earn an average of $700,000 this year… Executives at most big banks have kept their jobs.” (September 11, 2009). Not only are the same people who helped destroy the economy still in their immensely powerful positions, but their power has increased. The Economist explains: “Far from ceding ground, the big banks have grown even bigger, aided by government-brokered mergers. Rules have been bent or broken … nearly half of American mortgages made in the first half of the year came from Wells Fargo, which took over Wachovia, or BofA, which swallowed Countrywide.”
  34. Obama’s Trigger Promise Can’t Be Relied On 9/14/9 NH Watchdog reports: “In his health care speech to Congress on Wednesday, President Obama refused to show how his plan would achieve the cost reductions he claims it would. Instead, he presented another grand assertion: Any cost overruns will be balanced with spending cuts mandated by law. There’s just one problem with such triggers. They don’t work. The New York Times reported on Friday that “once in law, such automatic triggers have not proved effective as a way to reduce federal spending. In the past, Congress and the White House have simply overridden or ignored them.”
  35. Obama Lies about FHA Making only Sustainable, Safe & Sound Loans 9/14/9 The Market Ticker reports Obama speaks and lies again: “THE TRUTH is that: FHA has been and still is putting Americans into loans they cannot afford, as is proved by the default and foreclosure statistics. The housing and banking industry HAS NOT reformed its ways, specifically, pushing loans on people they cannot afford, and the FHA is blatantly conspiring with these clowns in APPROVING loans that statistically have a one in five shot at failure. The claim that these mortgage programs are “helping Americans” is a damned lie. No program that winds up with one in five borrowers unable to pay – a rate double that of credit-card defaults – can be said to be “sustainable”, “safe”, or ‘helping homeowners.”
  36. Obama Lies, Claiming his Administration has helped Homeowners Avoid Foreclosure! 9/14/9 The Market Ticker reports “The claim that FHA only has a single-digit default and delinquency rate, and is helping Americans own and keep their homes is a BALD-FACED LIE.” Market Ticker says the outcome of the FHA under the Obama Administration thus far is that one in 5 loans is either late or in foreclosure! “”Helping homeowners” eh? Not a snowball’s chance in Hell according not to your lies but the mathematical FACTS as represented in ACTUAL default rates.”
  37. Obama Not Acting Presidential – Calls Kanye West a Jacka**! 9/15/9 – Fox News “Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran wrote Monday evening to his more than 1 million followers. The tweet forced the network to issue an apology after the Internet quickly became abuzz over the stunning remark published on the microblogging site. An ABC spokesperson said, “In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview,” Politico reported. “This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes: Obama was right about West. He was wrong to use that language.
  38. Obama is Bush 3! – Wants wiretapping without going to Court for Warrant! 9/15/9 – Remember when liberal democrats blasted George W. Bush for “warrantless wiretaps?” Hypocrite-in-Chief Barack Obama wants to quietly keep those going. Shhhhh! Fox news: “The Obama administration supports extending three key provisions of the Patriot Act that are due to expire at the end of the year…it wants to preserve the post-Sept. 11 law’s authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called “lone wolf” terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps…The roving wiretaps provision was designed to allow investigators to quickly monitor the communications of suspects who change their cell phone or communication device, without investigators having to go back to court for a new court authorization. That provision has been used an average of 22 times a year, officials said.”UPDATE 2/28/2010: Obama signs another one year extension of Bush policy!
  39. Obama Disappoints His Pals at the Chicago 2016 Olympic Committee 9/16/9 Michael Sneed at the Chicago Sun Times: “The gush machine will be flowing full bore when Mayor Daley and 2016 Chicago Olympics Chairman Pat Ryan hit the White House for a visit with President Obama today. Privately: Both men are furious Obama is not planning to personally present the final Olympics pitch in Copenhagen next month, which, Sneed is told, had been the plan before Obama won the election. “It’s Daley’s legacy and Ryan’s dream,” a source said. Translation: “There is no way Obama’s advisers are going to let him go if it’s not a done deal,” a top source said. Further translation: “If Obama goes to Copenhagen and the bid loses, it presents this problem: Obama sets himself up as a lightning rod to make the United States an equal among equals, rather than a leader among equals.” UPDATE 9/17/9 Sneed reports: “It’s this simple. The bottom-line message to President Obama from Mayor Daley and the 2016 Chicago Olympics contingent at the White House Wednesday: If Obama doesn’t personally pitch Chicago’s bid in Copenhagen next month, we will lose it!” The first lady is going instead. UPDATE 9/28/9 – Obama does a Flip Flop and decides to go pitch the Chicago Olympic bid in person. It’s doubtful he would do that without some assurances that Chicago will be picked as the location for the 2016 games. UPDATE 10/2/9: Obama gives his pitch using his amazing oratory skills and the U.S. comes in 4th out 4 in the running for the 2016 games. Could it have had something to do with the bizarre speech his wife, Michelle Obama, gave? Her role was to convince the IOC that Chicago was the best site. Instead she gave a talk about her father becoming ill and dying. Bizarro!
  40. Team Obama is going to Pick who conducts the ACORN “Internal” investigation!!! 9/16/9 From Nola.Com and the Associated Press: “ACORN will work with its advisory council, which includes prominent supporters of President Barack Obama, such as John Podesta, president of the nonprofit Center for American Progress, and Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, to name an independent auditor and investigator, ACORN chief executive Bertha Lewis said in a written statement. The investigation will examine all the systems and processes called into question by the video, Lewis said. In addition, ACORN won’t accept new admissions into its community service programs, effective immediately, and within the next few days will conduct staff training, she said. Lewis said the steps were being taken in response to “the indefensible action of a handful of our employees.” The moves by ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, come as some Republicans urge the Justice Department to investigate the group. In addition to the hidden-camera video, is under scrutiny for several voter-registration fraud cases.” — ConservativeAmerican.org comments: So President Obama’s pals are supposed to appoint the supposedly “independent” firm to investigate the democrat party’s ACORN division? Give us a break!
  41. Obama’s Democrat Pals Limit Free Speech in Congress!– 9/16/9 What the heck country is this anymore?! From Rush Limbaugh: “‘Under Section 370 of the House Rules and Manual, it has been held that a member could: refer to the government as ‘something hated, something oppressive.’ – refer to the president as ‘using legislative or judicial pork.’ – refer to a presidential message as a ‘disgrace to the country.’ – refer to unnamed officials as ‘our half-baked nitwits handling foreign affairs.’ – “Likewise, it has been held that a member could not: – call the president a ‘liar.’ – call the president a ‘hypocrite.’ – describe the president’s veto of a bill as ‘cowardly.’ – charge that the president has been ‘intellectually dishonest.’ – refer to the president as ‘giving aid and comfort to the enemy.’ – refer to alleged ‘sexual misconduct on the president’s part.”’ – So the House of Representatives and their rules committee has now put out a list of things that can and cannot be said on the floor of the House of Representatives in what was the greatest representative republic in the history of the world.
  42. Obama’s “Most Outrageous Health Care Myths” # 1– 9/16/9 From John Lott at Fox News: “Two claims are made all the time in the health care debate: 1) that there is little competition among those providing health insurance…It turns out that claims about too little competition are based on a misinterpretation of the data…”There is a serious problem with the lack of competition among insurers,” said Republican Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine. “The impact on the consumer is significant.” Several studies point to how concentrated the health care insurance market is. A 2008 study by the American Medical Association shows that one or two health insurance providers dominate the market in most states, implying that the providers could be exploiting a monopoly-like situation to generate “excessive” profits…But they leave out the fact that for most people it is their employer, not the insurance companies, that pays for any bad health outcomes. The firm does so out of the company’s own pocket. The companies do what is called “self-insure” or “self-fund” their plans, and that occurs for around 55 percent of employees according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality with the Department of Health and Human Services. Take Maine, Senator Snowe’s state, as an example. There, the two largest insurance companies appear to control 88 percent of the market. And Well Point Inc. makes up most of that, with 78 percent. But what isn’t made clear is that these numbers only deal with privately insured patients who are insured by insurance companies. Slightly over half of the privately insured in Maine (52.1 percent) get their insurance through their employers who “self-insure.” So what about President Obama’s claim that in the 34 states most concentrated states 75 percent of the insurance market is controlled by five or fewer companies? Given that self-insured firms cover 57 percent of people insured in those states, the correct total market share for the largest five firms control is 32 percent, not 75 percent.”
  43. Obama’s “Most Outrageous Health Care Myths” # 2– 9/16/9 From John Lott at Fox News: “Two claims are made all the time in the health care debate: “2) that it is important to take the profit motive out of providing health insurance…non-profit insurers are so abundant that the largest insurer in virtually every state is a non-profit…by far the dominant players in the “full” insurance market are non-profits. Indeed, one of the motives of the government insurance option is to take profits out of the picture. “But having a public plan out there that also shows that maybe if you take some of the profit motive out, maybe if you are reducing some of the administrative costs, that you can get an even better deal, that’s going to incentivize the private sector to do even better. And that’s a good thing,” President Obama told the nation during his July 22nd press conference.Yet, in 29 of the 43 states that data are available for in the American Medical Association report mentioned earlier, the dominant company in the “full” insurance market is a non-profit company. In state after state, Blue Cross and Blue Shield hold the largest market share. On average, the largest non-profit hold over half of the “full” market share in those 29 states. Why add another non-profit operation to the mix? Getting rid of profits wouldn’t make costs go down – they would go up, because without profits there would no longer be the same incentive to hold down costs.”
  44. VP Biden “Stretches the Truth” on Rural Water Projects! 9/16/9 The Associated Press notes: “Under pressure to show quick results from the economic stimulus, the White House is taking credit for starting to build hundreds of rural water systems nationwide. But don’t look for construction crews anytime soon. At most job sites, it could be awhile. Sometimes, a long while. It all depends on what the definition of “starting” is. THE SPIN: Vice President Joe Biden said two weeks ago, “We set a goal of starting to build 200 water sanitary systems and wastewater treatment facilities in rural America. We’ve met that goal.” The White House Web site says “We are pleased to report that new waste and water systems are underway in 200 communities in rural America.” THE FACTS: Wednesday marked the 100-day deadline Biden set in June for his promise. Despite claims that the administration has started to build these projects, many exist only on paper and won’t see construction for some time. Of the 10 largest projects in the continental U.S. announced by the Obama administration in the past 100 days, none has begun construction. Workers won’t begin digging at many job sites until sometime next year.
  45. Obama Gives in to Russian Pressure – Cancels European Missile Defense! 9/17/9 Russia wins the Obama coin toss! President Obama today announced he is canceling the planned missile defense system for Europe. Yahoo! News and the Associated Press report: “The new (Obama) plan would rely (on) sea and land-based sensors and interceptor missiles intended as a bulwark against Iranian short- and medium-range missiles. The Bush missile shield plan, which never moved beyond the blueprint stage, would have been a deterrent for Iranian long-range missiles, but Russians worried that the system would be aimed at them…the decision can be read at least in part as an effort to placate Russia at a time when its support against Iran’s suspected nuclear program has not been forthcoming and is sorely needed.Obama faced the dilemma of either setting back the gradual progress toward repairing relations with Russia or disappointing the Czech Republic and Poland, two key NATO allies…Senate Republican Whip Jon Kyl called the decision “dangerous and shortsighted.” “The message the administration sends today is clear: The United States will not stand behind its friends and views ‘re-setting’ relations with Russia more important,” said the Arizona senator. “This is wrong!” UPDATE 9/18/9: Former National Security employee (Nixon, Ford & Reagan) says Obama tosses ally aside and we get nothing! “By canceling the promised missile shield, he in effect cut Poland loose and threw her to the Russians…70 years to the day after of their brutal invasion of the country. Nice timing.” Meanwhile, Fox News reports Obama mishandled the protocol by having Hillary call Poland instead of making the call himself! “(Polish Prime Minister Donald) Tusk told Polish radio that he did not want to speak with Obama on Wednesday night because he wanted to “properly prepare for the discussion.” But Politico.com reported Friday that it wasn’t Obama on the line — that Tusk actually rejected a call from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — who called him to detail the plan — because as a head of government, he thought he should hear from Obama directly.”Hillary called — and the reason he turned it down was because of protocol,” one of two U.S.-based sources close to the Polish government told Politico.”
  46. Obama Breaks No Tax Increase on Those Making Less than $250K Promise (AGAIN!) 9/17/9 The Obama Cap & Trade (Cap & Tax) plan would cost you dearly! C-BS (C for Couric and BS for what she does) News reports: “The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent. A previously unreleased analysis prepared by the U.S. Department of Treasury says the total in new taxes would be between $100 billion to $200 billion a year. At the upper end of the administration’s estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year.”
  47. Obama Appointment Scandal #77 – Kevin Jennings 9/18/9 – Sean Hannity adds one to the list from his TV special, “The President’s Ten” featuring some of Team Obama’s crazy appointees (the other 9 are on the list already: Carol Browner, Rosa Brooks, Mark Lloyd, Dawn Johnsen, David Hamilton, Harold Koh, Samantha Power, Cass Sunstein & John Holdren). Hannity says Obama named Kevin Jennings to the post of Assistant Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. Jennings used to be the Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. Hannity reported that group sponsored a conference called “Teach Out 2000” at which Department of Education officials provided graphic answers to children on how to perform sexual acts. Hannity guest, Noelle Nikpour, says that included homosexual acts. UPDATE 9/23/9Fox News: “President Obama’s “safe schools czar” is a former schoolteacher who has advocated promoting homosexuality in schools, written about his past drug abuse, expressed his contempt for religion and detailed an incident in which he did not report an underage student who told him he was having sex with older men. Conservatives are up in arms about the appointment of Kevin Jennings, Obama’s director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, saying he is too radical for the job…as a teacher in Massachusetts, he founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which now has over 40 chapters at schools nationwide. He has also published six books on gay rights and education, including one that describes his own experiences as a closeted gay student.” UPDATE 10/1/9: Fox News “President Obama’s “safe schools czar,” under fire from critics who say he’s unfit for his job, acknowledged Wednesday that he “should have handled [the] situation differently” years ago when he was a schoolteacher and didn’t report that a 15-year-old boy told him that he was having sex with an older man…”I should have handled this situation differently. I should have asked for more information and consulted legal or medical authorities.” UPDATE 10/15/9 53 House Republicans call on Obama to fire Jennings, “citing their concerns that Kevin Jennings wants to promote a “homosexual agenda” and that as a schoolteacher years ago he did not report that a young student told him he was romantically involved with an older man.” UPDATE 12/13/9: More completely disgusting information is revealed about Jennings. Media Matters defends him. Big Government keeps revealing disgusting details about this man’s terrible behavior. UPDATE 12/14/9: Fox News: “President Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” already a target of social conservatives for his past drug abuse and what they say is his promotion of homosexuality in schools, is under fresh attack after it was revealed that the pro-gay group he formerly headed recommends books his critics say are pornographic…One recommended book is titled “Queer 13: Lesbian and Gay Writers Recall Seventh Grade.” … In another book, “Passages of Pride,” the author writes about a 15-year-old boy’s relationship with a much older man…On Page 13 of a third book, “Reflections of a Rock Lobster,” the author recounts his sexual encounters in first grade. “By first grade I was sexually active with many friends. In fact, a small group of us regularly met in the grammar school lavatory…” — More disgusting “fistgate” detail on Jennings and the fisting he wants to teach our kids is here (NSFA… Not suitable for anything!).
  48. Obama Promotes ObamaCare and puts War on Hold! 9/18/9 – While President Obama delays a decision on sending more troops to Afghanistan, more soldiers continue to die. The President has time to dance around the country doing what he loves best, campaigning for socialist health care reform. Why doesn’t he have time to make up his mind about something as important as the troop levels in a war we are fighting?! His own general says he needs 40,000 more troops to win the war. Earlier, Obama provided his own troop surge of 17,000 additional troops when generals asked for 30,000. To put this on hold to deal with health reform is outrageous. UPDATE 9/22/9: 300 soldiers have died now since President Obama took office. UPDATE 9/24/9: From Fox News: “OBAMA: What I’m not also going to do, though, is put the resource question before the strategy question. Until I’m satisfied that we’ve got the right strategy, I’m not going to be sending some young man or woman over there beyond what we already have. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, (R) ARIZONA: Let me tell you what’s the worst part of this is that the administration has told General McChrystal not to send his recommendation for the additional troops.” ConservativeAmerican.org notes: What difference does it make if he officially sends something we all know about already anyway? The fact is he wants the troops now and Obama is not about to give him what he needs to WIN. UPDATE 10/7/9: Fox News, “”We are witnessing a profound lack of focus,” House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence, R-Ind., said Wednesday…Sen. John McCain, told Obama that he should not move at a “leisurely pace,” according to people in the room.That comment later drew a sharp response from Obama, they said. Obama said no one felt more urgency than he did about the war, and there would not be nothing leisurely about it…”We do recognize that he has a tough decision, and he wants ample time to make a good decision,” said House Republican leader John Boehner. “Frankly, I support that, but we need to remember that every day that goes by, the troops that we do have there are in greater danger.”…”Half-measures is what I worry about,” McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters.”
  49. Obama’s Outrageous Lie About Acorn! 9/20/9 – From Michelle Malkin reports on what Obama Told ABCDEmocrat News today: “STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN? OBAMA: You know, it’s — frankly, it’s not really something I’ve followed closely. I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money…You know, what I know is, is that what I saw on that video was certainly inappropriate and deserves to be investigated. STEPHANOPOULOS: So you’re not committing to — to cut off the federal funding? OBAMA: George, this is not the biggest issue facing the country. It’s not something I’m paying a lot of attention to.” As Malkin notes, “It strains credulity — no, it snaps credulity in half — to believe Obama “didn’t even know” that ACORN was “getting a whole lot of federal money” given his extensive legal services on behalf of the group and training for its voter education arm, Project Vote. (Go re-read my column from June 2008, “The ACORN Obama knows,” and all the links for a refresher course.) Repeat after me: Obama is ACORN. ACORN is Obama. Barack Obama can no more disown ACORN than he could disown his own shadow.” UPDATE 9/27/9: More Proof Obama Lied about ACORN Scandal Obama’s statement, “I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money,” is quite interesting considering he had millions put in his own Economic Stimulus Plan for ACORN! As we noted (Scandal dated mid February – Obama Sneaks Money to ACORN) , Fox News reported back in February that Republican John Boehner had revealed Obama was sneaking money into the Deficit Stimulus Plan for his democrat partisan pals at ACORN for so-called neighborhood “stabilization” (creating more democrat voters makes a neighborhood more “stable” I guess).

    President Obama also says it will cost $15-Billion in new money to keep a child health care program going.
  51. Feds use the National Endowment for the Arts to Promote the ObamaCare Nightmare?!!! (& Obama Appointment Scandal # 78 – Yosi Sergant) 9/20/9 – Syndicated Columnist George Will of the Washington Post reports, “”This is just the beginning,” Yosi Sergant told participants in an Aug. 10 conference call that seems to have been organized by the National Endowment for the Arts and certainly was joined by a functionary from the White House Office of Public Engagement. The call was the beginning of the end of Sergant’s short tenure as NEA flack — he has been reassigned. The call also was the beginning of a scandal that illuminates something gargantuan — the Obama administration’s incontinent lust to politicize everything. Sergant’s comments, made to many individuals and organizations from what is cloyingly called “the arts community,” continued: “This is the first telephone call of a brand-new conversation. We are just now learning how to really bring this community together to speak with the government.” Wrong preposition. Not “with” the government, but for the government. Did the White House initiate the conference call-cum-political pep rally? Or did the NEA, an independent agency, spontaneously politicize itself? Something that reads awfully like an invitation went from Sergant’s NEA e-mail address to a cohort of “artists, producers, promoters, organizers, influencers, marketers, tastemakers, leaders or just plain cool people.” They were exhorted to participate in a conference call “to help lay a new foundation for growth, focusing on core areas of the recovery agenda.” The first core area mentioned was “health care.” The NEA is the nation’s largest single source of financial support for the arts, and its grants often prompt supplemental private donations. He who pays the piper does indeed call the tune, and in the four months before the conference call, 16 of the participating organizations received a total of nearly $2 million from the NEA. Two days after the call, the 16 and five other organizations issued a plea for the president’s health-care plan.” — The Washington Post reports, “Sergant became well known during campaign 2008 for his work with artist Shepard Fairey around the iconic Obama HOPE poster, and first came to Washington as a staffer in the White House…The National Endowment for the Arts has reassigned former communications director Yosi Sergant, who had become the latest target of FOX News talk show host Glenn Beck…The move came after he had come under attack from Beck, a conservative commentator who accused Sergant of attempting to use taxpayer money to fund art to support the president’s initiatives. UPDATE 9/24/9: Fox News reports Yosi had to resign today! UPDATE 10/29/9: Judicial Watch got a ton of information on the political conference call. UPDATE 10/31/9: Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air website links another White House executive to this scandal, Kalpen Modi.
  52. Team Obama Tells NY Gov Paterson to Stop Seeking Another Term! 9/20/9 New York Times: “Gov. David A. Paterson insisted on Sunday that he would continue his campaign for governor, despite urgings from the White House that he step aside for the good of the Democratic Party…The plan to appeal to Mr. Paterson to step aside was proposed by the president’s political team and approved by Mr. Obama. “For the White House to allegedly intercede so forcefully at this juncture, that’s surprising,” said H. Carl McCall, a former state comptroller and 2002 Democratic nominee for governor…White House political director, Patrick Gaspard, met with Mr. Paterson…Gaspard, a New York native, has crossed paths with Mr. Paterson before. Before joining the White House, Mr. Gaspard served as political director of 1199 S.E.I.U. United Healthcare Workers East, the giant union that battered Mr. Paterson with attack ads…Mr. Obama’s aides seemed eager on Sunday to ease any anger over White House involvement in the governor’s contest.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes: Obama has a short memory of how this stuff feels. It wasn’t that long ago that a President (Clinton) told Obama to stop campaigning!
  53. Obama’s White House Staffer Pushed ObamaCare on the National Endowment for the Arts! (& Obama Appointment Scandal # 79 – Buffy Wicks) 9/21/9 Breitbart’s Big Hollywood identifies the “functionary from the White House Office of Public Engagement” that George Will wrote about as having pushed ObamaCare during a conference call to grant recipients of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) as being Buffy Wicks. Rush Limbaugh today refers to Wicks as “Buffy the Wal-Mart Slayer” because of her involvement in protests against Wal-Mart. As we pointed out July 2nd, Obama has done a huge flip-flop on Wal-Mart: “President Obama has gone from saying he wanted to “force” Wal-Mart to “re-examine its corporate values,” to being a fan of the company he has personally profited from. That’s because Wal-Mart now is backing at least part of Obama’s socialist healthcare plan!” Wicks was part of Team Obama California and was in charge of Obama’s Inauguration. Ron Galloway writes at the Huffington Post that, “I met Buffy two years ago when she was instrumental in the anti-Wal-Mart effort. She was polite to me, which she didn’t have to be, and frighteningly smart. And frightening to me in general.” ConservativeAmerican.org wonders what the young Buffy, (who works for Valerie Jarrett–see scandal #75 dated 12/18/2008), thinks of Obama suddenly liking Wal-Mart now! Wicks crossed ethical, and perhaps even legal, lines in pushing federal arts grant recipients to help promote the ObamaCare Nightmare. She also asked them to produce pro-Obama artwork! UPDATE 11/4/9: The Washington Examiner wants to know why Wicks remains on the White House payroll after the NEA scandals.

  57. Obama Tells ABC there’s no tax in Obamacare, but Yes There Is!
  58. 9/21/9 Fox News: “President Obama gave ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos a stern talking-to Sunday for suggesting that a mandate to buy health insurance would amount to a tax. But the language of the health care reform plan proposed by Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., explicitly labels the penalty attached to the mandate as an “excise tax…”The excise tax would apply for any period for which the individual is not covered by a health insurance plan with the minimum required benefit,” the Baucus plan says. ” UPDATE 9/30/9: The National Review Online adds: ““The middle class will realize greater security, not higher taxes.” Obama would make health insurance compulsory for the middle class (and everyone else). If he thinks that isn’t a tax, he should listen to his economic adviser Larry Summers, or his nominee for assistant secretary for planning and evaluation at HHS, Sherry Glied. Both liken the “individual mandate” to a tax, as do other prominent health economists like Uwe Reinhardt (Princeton) and Jonathan Gruber (MIT). The CBO affirms that the penalties for non-compliance “would be equivalent to a tax or fine.” UPDATE 11/4/9: Reason Magazine reports, “President Obama broke his promise to raise taxes only on the wealthy barely two weeks after taking office, says Senior Editor Jacob Sullum, and he will break it again if Congress passes the health care legislation he wants. But Sullum says Obama has come up with a strategy to avoid the fate of George H.W. Bush: Although he will raise your taxes, he will never admit he is raising your taxes.”

  59. Obama Uses Another Bad Example 9/21/9 Remember the Post Office example he used about UPS? Well he used a similar example on George Step-in-a-lot-of-it at ABCDEmocrat News: “And,” Obama said, “you actually can afford health insurance, but you’ve just decided, you know what, I want to take my chances. And then you get hit by a bus. And you and I have to pay for the emergency room care.” Bad example. Not true. The bus driver’s insurance would pay for the care, not “you and I.”
  60. Obama Breaks Promise on Negotiating for Cheaper Drug Prices 9/21/9 This is one of VERY FEW that come from CBS (gasp) News: “In the Jan. 31, 2008 debate, Mr. Obama said, “If a drug company — if the drug companies or a member of Congress who’s carrying water for the drug companies wants to argue that we should not negotiate for the cheapest available price on drugs, then I want them to make that argument in front of the American people. We’ll negotiate with the drug companies for the cheapest available price on drugs,” Mr. Obama said again in an Oct. 15, 2008 debate with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). It turns out, however, Mr. Obama reneged on this promise in a secretive way. In July the president praised the drug industry for its agreement to reduce its revenues by $80 billion over 10 years by discounting the cost of medicines for some seniors. After Congress sought to extract further funds from the pharmaceutical industry, however, it was revealed that the White House made some previously undisclosed deals to get the industry to stay at the negotiating table. “The White House had tracked the negotiations throughout, assenting to decisions to move away from ideas like the government negotiation of prices or the importation of cheaper drugs from Canada,” the New York Times reported.
  61. Obama Breaks Promise on Allowing You to Buy Drugs from Other Nations 9/21/9 Also from CBS: “During the campaign, Mr. Obama said his plan would “Allow consumers to import safe drugs from other countries” because “some companies are exploiting Americans by dramatically overcharging U.S. consumers.” As noted above, the Obama administration secretly conceded to forgo the importation of cheaper drugs in its deal with the pharmaceutical industry.
  62. Obama Breaks Promise That the Average Family will save $2,500 a Year with Obamacare! 9/21/9 CBS News ran a story about the 5 Health Care Promises Obama Won’t Keep. Two of them, his promise of transparency and that he won’t mandate that individuals buy insurance, have already been covered on our list. The two above and this one make up the other three. From CBS: “”The only thing we’re going to try to do is lower costs so that those cost savings are passed onto you. And we estimate we can cut the average family’s premium by about $2,500 per year.” This campaign promise is the trickiest to explain and to evaluate. Mr. Obama gave this figure repeatedly, but he was not being completely forthright about what he meant. His administration never expected families to see savings of $2,500 in premiums; instead, his advisers calculated the total cost savings for both individuals and the government.”UPDATE 9/23/9: CATO institute says Obama breaks tons of promises and is batting 1 for 61!
  63. Obama Flip Flop on Being Black 9/21/9 – Barack Obama, acknowledging his white mother and the white grandparents who raised him, has called himself a “mutt” (a reference to a mixed dog breed) in the past. As president, he has fueled the fire of the racial divide by saying a white police officer “acted stupidly” in arresting his black friend. He had to backtrack on that one with his “beer summit” and was a guest on the Palin-Hating David Letterman Show this week. Asked if critics of his socialist health care takeover are opposed to his plan just because of his race, Obama offered: “First of all, I think it’s important to realize that I was actually black before the election,” Obama said to huge laughs from Letterman and the audience. Responded Letterman: “How long have you been a black man?” — That’s actually a good question. How can Obama claim he is black when he has a white mother? Can he then also claim he is white? ConservativeAmerican.org points out that Obama has never been a black man, despite being hailed as the “first black” president. He is bi-racial, half white and half black, and the first bi-racial president. That is not a racist comment and I am no racist. This merely is a statement of truth. While there obviously are some racists in this country who oppose Obama, to claim that all who oppose the ObamaCare Nightmare are racists is foolish and untrue. He also is the first socialist president.
  64. VP Biden Gaffe: Democrats are all Doomed! 9/21/9 –ABC News reporter Karen Travers writes: “Vice President Joe Biden said today that if Democrats were to lose 35 House seats they currently hold in traditionally Republican districts, it would mean doomsday for President Obama’s agenda. Biden said Republicans are pinning their political strategy on flipping these seats. “If they take them back, this the end of the road for what Barack and I are trying to do,” the vice president said at a fundraiser for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) today in Greenville, Delaware.Republicans need to pick up 40 seats next November to take back control of the House.” –ConservativeAmerican.org notes: End of the line for Obama? Doomsday for what they are trying to do? We can only hope!
  65. Obama Tries to Punish ObamaCare Nightmare Opponents! – Humana 9/22/9 – The : “The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launched an investigation into Humana Inc.’s effort to enlist beneficiaries to fight proposed cuts to Medicare’s private plans. The investigation, launched Friday, is looking at whether Humana, one of the largest providers of Medicare Advantage plans, violated marketing rules by sending letters to beneficiaries in Michigan, Florida and other states urging them to contact lawmakers to register their opposition to proposed cuts. The letters state that “millions of seniors and disabled individuals could lose many of the important benefits and services that make Medicare Advantage health plans so valuable” — a claim congressional Democrats say is false…(Government) Officials on Friday requested that the company stop the mailings and shut down the Web site…If Humana violated marketing rules, sanctions could include fines or suspending its ability to market their plans and enroll new beneficiaries.” — So for voicing opposition to the Baucus-Obama Bill, Humana gets thrust into a government probe. That’ll teach companies not to fight the Rahm Emanuel-David Axelrod-Barack Obama White House! UPDATE 9/23/9Fox adds: “Republican Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell blasted the investigation of Humana on Wednesday, calling it a “federal gag order” that seeks to silence a health provider that disagrees with the administration. McConnell said he’s called for a complete legal justification of the probe.”This is so clearly an outrage,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “For explaining to seniors how legislation might affect them, the federal government has now issued a gag order on that company, and any other company that communicates with clients on the issue, telling them to shut up — or else. This is precisely the kind of thing Americans are worried about with the administration’s health care plan. They’re worried that government agencies which were created to enforce violations even-handedly will instead be used against those who voice a different point of view,” he said. UPDATE 9/24/9: Wall Street Journal: “Humana gets whacked for telling the truth, AARP gets a pass for spreading falsehoods.”
  66. Obama’s Carbon Emissions Lie 9/22/9 – Rush Limbaugh notes that President Obama today told a United Nations Climate Change meeting that the U.S. has done more to reduce carbon emissions in the last eight months (since Obama took office), than at any time in history. Limaugh says that is a “flat out P.R. lie!” If it is true, Limbaugh says, then we certainly don’t need the Obama Cap & Tax plan. While Obama claimes the future of the planet depends on the reduction of greenhouse gas, the New York Times is reporting the temperatures have been stable for ten years and may even drop in the coming years.
  67. Team Obama Picks Lefty for Acorn Investigation! 9/22/9 –

    Team Obama has selected a George-Soros Funded lefty to “investigate” ACORN!!! Former Democrat Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger has been selected by friends and supporters of Obama to investigate the democrat party’s ACORN division. Harshbarger ran the lefty group, “Common Cause.” The American Spectator calls that group, “One of liberal philanthropist George Soros’s favorite lefty groups…It attacks pharmaceutical companies for opposing government-run health care”! It gets worse. Obama’s personal pals Andy Stern and John Podesta were on the group that helped to pick Harshbarger!! Talk about an inside job! Stern is the President of the SEIU and Podesta runs the Center for American Progress-ives. Fox reports: “”ACORN has already been down this path before,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif…”A self-run investigation is not a substitute for an independent investigation.”

  68. Obama Appointment Scandal # 80 – Nancy Ann DeParle
  69. 9/22/9 From RedState: “Who has he chosen as his health policy czar to make sure the waste, fraud, and abuse gets stamped out? Nancy-Ann DeParle. And why do I call her a non sequitur appointee? Well, a non sequitur is a logical fallacy and that’s what this appointment is. Why the hell would you appoint as your healthy policy czar who will focus on rooting out Medicare’s waste, fraud, and abuse the woman who ran Medicare for Bill Clinton and utterly and completely failed to root out waste, fraud, and abuse?…According to the Investigative Reporting Workshop of the American University School of Communication and MSNBC (!!!)…In touting DeParle’s accomplishments when he appointed her in March, Obama didn’t mention the lucrative private-sector career she built since September 2000, when she left her government job running Medicare for the Clinton administration. Records show she earned more than $6.6 million since early 2001, according to a tally by the Investigative Reporting Workshop. And the public wasn’t told that much of that corporate career was built at companies that have frequently had to defend themselves against federal investigations. After leaving government, DeParle accepted director positions at half a dozen companies suspected of violating the very laws and regulations she had enforced for Medicare. Those companies got into further trouble on her watch as a director. Now she’s back in government as a leading voice in deciding the shape of health care reform. As director of the White House Office of Health Reform, DeParle is the point person in pushing for the administration’s plans for changing health care and the ways Americans pay for it — changes in which her former companies have a great deal at stake.” UPDATE 1/28/11: ObamaCare Pusher DeParle gets Promoted! New Chief of Staff Bill Daley names her “Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy.”

  70. Obama Throws Another Ally Under the Bus 9/23/9 – Barack Obama uses the United Nations as a forum to toss American ally, Israel, under the bus! Fox News says, “In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace “without preconditions,” President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements…Obama just put Israel “on the chopping block,” said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.
  71. Another Obama Lie Uncovered! 9/23/9 This lie was hiding in plain sight until Maggie Thurber put it on her blog: “Yesterday (9/21/9) our local paper, The Blade, did (an interview) with President Barack Obama…”When I came into office, we were losing 700,000 jobs per month. Credit was frozen so that small businesses and large businesses alike couldn’t borrow.”…According to CNNMoney.com, job losses in November 2008 were 584,000 and job losses in December 2008 were 524,000. Total losses for the months of September and October 2008 were 792,000, so clearly neither month was ’700,000.’ U.S. News and World Report says that the January 2009 job losses were 598,000, while the New York Times reported February 2009 job losses of 651,000. So when the president said we were losing 700,000 jobs per month when he came into office, was he lying? Or just, perhaps, exaggerating?” — ConservativeAmerican.org answers Maggie’s question: He was lying…again.
  72. Obama Making up Facts, Creates “Climate Refugees!” 9/23/9 Dinocrat Catches this one with great humor! “That sinking feeling! From the President’s speech at the UN we learn that “rising sea levels threaten every coastline,” apparently causing islands to shrink and people to flee their homes as climate refugees:(Obama quote) “On shrinking islands, families are already being forced to flee their homes as climate refugees.” What islands is Obama talking about? Tuvalu, which has seen a negligible 3cm rise in sea level over the last quarter century? Or perhaps dreary Kivalina, which has indeed been shrinking, though not because of global warming. Apparently sea level increased by an average of 1.8mm a year over the last century. So if you were on an island like Tuvalu, which is 4.5m above sea level, you would be forced to “flee your home as a climate refugee” by the year 3000 or so. Better start running!” — Jonas Brothers: “You see I’ve been to the year 3000. Not Much has changed but they live underwater.”
  73. Public School Kids Indoctrinated with Praise Obama Song!
  74. 9/24/9 A nation where public school kids are taught to sing the praises of a current president (of either party) is not the American I know and love! Is it your America? Liberals ran column after column about how silly all the conservatives were for screaming indoctrination about the White House-written lesson plans sent to public schools. You remember them…the one’s the White Hosue was forced to throw out! Well, how’s this for indoctrination…it comes from B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, New Jersey…Here’s the video of them being taught to sing the Barack Hussein Obama Song (they apparently didn’t know you’re not supposed to use his middle name because it makes him sound Muslim)…
    VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    Can’t wait to here the Socialists explain away this one. Will any reporter have the guts to ask Obama himself if he thinks this is appropriate? Is this His America? The school should be temporarily shut down. The principal should be immediately fired. The teacher apparently retired last year, but steps should be taken to see if she can be disciplined through her pension benefits. Special non-union instructors and counselors should be brought in to teach these kids about brainwashing and help them to understand that what happened to them was wrong. Parents should shut this school down until these issues are addressed! Democrats, Liberals, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, Conservatives…all should be outraged over this one. We need more Tea Parties! We need to take our America back from the Socialists elected in 2008! Enough is Enough! UPDATE 9/29/9 More indoctrination from other schools. Here’s the video of the kids singing at a PTO meeting:
    VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    Meanwhile, the Alex Jones Show has another video to add to the collection:
    VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

  75. Earlier Obama Arts Scandal Uncovered! 9/24/9 Fox News: “The White House convened a meeting of 60 artists to help push the president’s domestic agenda in May, months before a controversial conference call with artists in August led to the reassignment and, on Thursday, the resignation of the communications director of the National Endowment for the Arts. In what some critics are calling a “troubling” early effort by the Obama administration to politicize the NEA, rappers, dancers, writers and other activists from around the country were invited to a May 12 session next door to the White House, where they were “challenged to come up with promising and attractive ideas about how artists can work for the administration’s agenda,” according to a report written by organizers of the meeting. An NEA official in charge of grants for performing artists was in attendance, as was the organization’s former chief spokesman, Yosi Sergant, who was reassigned last month after he led a similar conference call with 75 artists and urged them to promote Obama’s policies…One participant in the May 12 session “suggested the people in the room equaled a think tank to serve the administration’s aims and asked how in practical terms we could connect to the administration’s work,” the report says. Government watchdogs said the meeting at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building was a problematic and partisan use of the NEA, which is supposed to be politically neutral…Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington…said it was “troubling” that the government-funded NEA was suggesting to artists who rely on it for aid that they make a push for the administration. “There’s got to be a certain amount of pressure [the artists] are feeling.”…According to the meeting report, the NEA’s director of presenting, Mario Garcia Durham, spoke of the “recent increase in the NEA’s budget” — what he called a “break in the clouds” — that would allow more artists to get government funding.” — ConservativeAmerican.org adds this: Yes, more government funding IF YOU SUPPORT OBAMA!
  76. Krauthammer’s “Obama Human Rights Scandal” 9/24/9 From Fox News: “(BRET) BAIER: Charles, last word here quickly. You’ve said of other speeches by President Obama around the world that they are very apologetic in nature. Is that your sense in this one as well? KRAUTHAMMER: This one was worse. When he (inaudible) about how he had reversed the course of America and how those who doubt our character aught look at our actions, among the actions he cited was our joining the U.N. Human Rights Council, which is led by the worst human rights violators on the planet. It is an Orwellian, farcical organization. The idea that we should be on it is regrettable, but the idea that we should be boasting about it as an American achievement is a scandal.
  77. VP Joe Biden Threatens His Own Life! 9/24/9 A threat on the Vice President’s life came from…the Vice President himself! Politico reports that during a conference call with the states, Missouri Democrat Gov. Jay Nixon thanked Biden for his interest in the stimulus. Biden then replied, “‘Pure self interest, Jay. If it fails, I’m dead.’”
  78. Obama Abandons Afghanistan Promises! 9/25/9 – From Kori Schake writing in the Wall Street Journal: “When Mr. Obama announced his current Afghanistan policy in March, he said it was “a stronger, smarter, more comprehensive strategy” that would build schools, hospitals, roads, and enterprise zones, addressing issues like energy and trade. Where are those efforts? He said “to advance security, opportunity and justice—not just in Kabul, but from the bottom up in the provinces—we need agricultural specialists and educators; engineers and lawyers.” Where are those specialists? The president said “I am ordering a substantial increase in our civilians on the ground.” He directed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to develop a diplomatic plan to parallel Gen. McChrystal’s military plan. Where is that plan? The administration has done virtually nothing in these areas.” Ms. Schake is a fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and an associate professor at the United States Military Academy.
  79. Obama Giving Stimulus Money to Libyan Charities run by the Gadhafi Family!
  80. 9/25/9 Gateway Pundit: “Obama plans on giving $400,000 to a Libyan Charity run by the Gaddafi family. CBS2 Chicago reported: The Obama Administration plans to give $400,000 in funding to a Libyan charity run by the Gadhafi family, and U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the grant withdrawn. The money would be divided between two foundations run by the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. A $200,000 share is set to go to the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi’s son, Saif, and another $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi’s daughter, Aisha.” ConservativeAmerican.org asks, Why are your tax dollars being given away as a charitable gift to foreign charities? Since when can the federal government tax us so they have money to give away to foreign charities?

  81. Obama Breaks Promise to Close Guantanamo Bay by January 9/27/9 The Miami Herald reports: “The White House acknowledged for the first time Friday that it might not be able to close the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay by January as President Barack Obama has promised. Senior administration officials told The Associated Press that difficulties in completing the lengthy review of detainee files and resolving thorny legal and logistical questions mean the president’s self-imposed January deadline may slip.”
  82. Obama Breaks No Earmarks Pledge – Again 9/27/9 From Carol Marin at the Chicago Sun Times: “The story that stood out was by David D. Kirkpatrick of the New York Times. It was headlined, “Health Bill Could Hold Reward for 4 Cancer Centers.” His report should make our national blood boil enough to tell Barack Obama that all his compromising on health-care reform isn’t reforming Washington one iota. His story line was simple. In exchange for supporting aspects of the Obama health initiative, some members of Congress, including the leadership of the president’s own party, want pork. And so, imbedded in the fine print of the 1,000-page-plus legislation, are sweeteners for certain senators who intend to bring home some bacon in exchange for their vote. The worst example cited was none other than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He wants to ensure that the Nevada Cancer Institute, a cancer treatment center with no particular national reputation, reaps “a big gain in federal reimbursements as part of the health-care overhaul.” Functionally, it’s an “earmark,” which Obama railed against during the campaign. Kirkpatrick found a number of them tucked in this so-called reform package, written in a wily way to slip by us taxpayers unnoticed, proposals that “would provide more favorable Medicare payment rates to just a handful of specific medical facilities.” I’d call it a scandal but sadly, it’s not. “It’s just business as usual.”
  83. Obama Priorities Screwed Up – Has Only Spoken to General in Charge in Afghanistan Once in 70 days! 9/28/9 C-BS (C for Couric and BS for what she does) “60 Minutes” interviewed Gen. Stanley McChrystal yesterday who acknowledged he has only spoken to President Obama once in 70 days. While Obama continues to have time for the artificial priority of socialist health care, he doesn’t even have time to talk to the man in charge of the U.S. war in Afghanistan! This is a disgrace. Rush Limbaugh highlights the issue on his radio show today. McChrystal wants more troops. Still no response from Obama. UPDATE 9/30/9: It makes news on Fox today that the President will actually meet soon with the general in charge of the Afghan War! As for critics like us that say he needs to respond to the general’s request for more troops, White House Spinster Robert “Brothers” Gibbs says, “The American people deserve an assessment that’s beyond game playing.”
  84. Obama’s Other Story was a Lie Too!! 9/29/9 – The President of the United States used two FAKE examples to push his ObamaCare Nightmare when addressing congress! We told you about the first one in a scandal dated 9/9/9, “Obama Lies to Congress # 8 -Obama Lied About Insurance Case!” Now, Fox News says the other story was a lie too!! “(The) President said a Texas woman about to have breast cancer surgery lost her health insurance because she didn’t disclose a case of acne to the insurer. That’s not what happened. One of President Barack Obama’s health care “horror stories” is about a woman who, he says, lost her health insurance on the verge of breast cancer surgery…Robin Lynn Beaton, 59, of Waxahachie, Texas, indeed had her insurance suspended and then terminated when she needed it the most. Hers is a cautionary tale about how an insurance company can act in a seemingly arbitrary manner to revoke coverage for lifesaving treatment. But not for the reasons Obama cites. She “was about to get a double mastectomy when her insurance company canceled her policy because she forgot to declare a case of acne,” he said in one telling. Beaton…lost it (insurance) because, when enrolling in the plan, she had not reported a previous heart condition and did not list her weight accurately…Beaton’s case is just one cited by Obama that mixes fact with fiction…Rep. Joe Barton, Beaton’s Republican congressman in Texas, fought the insurer until it restored her coverage, enabling her to get the surgery 10 weeks after it was postponed. She told The Associated Press she owes Barton and his aides her life. But somewhere along the way, Beaton’s case became a White House tale of an insurer canceling coverage because she forgot to report acne…But five days after (the policy) was finally canceled, (it was Republican) Barton (who) called the company president directly, said the lawmaker’s spokesman, Sean Brown. Among the points raised: The possibility of a news conference drawing attention to the case. Barton also said he might name a bill after Robin Beaton. Four hours later, Barton said, he got a call saying her insurance would be reinstated. Barton is a Conservative (American) who is no fan of Obama’s health care plans. UPDATE 9/30/9: Jake Tapper has more on this story!
  85. Obama Flip Flops on Darfur & Sudan! – Disagrees with His Own U.N. Ambassador! 9/29/9 In an EXCLUSIVE story at ConservativeAmerican.org, we report that >Barack Obama’s new policy on dealing with Darfur and the Sudan is in direct conflict with the views of his U.N. Ambassador, the self-described “cussing and spitting” Susan Rice. Rice wants Congress to authorize the use of force to end genocide in Darfur, including strikes against Sudanese military locations. To make that clear, she wants US military troops to be ready to attack forces taking part in genocide. She also is asking Obama to use the US Air Force to enforce a no fly zone over Darfur. Rice also wants NATO’s rapid response team and rapid deployment of UN Military Batallions! Meanwhile, The Washington Post reports today that President Obama has a new challenge: reconciling what he has said about Sudan and the situation in Darfur, with what he is actually doing about it!…becoming a test of how President Obama will reconcile a policy of engagement with earlier statements blasting a government he said had “offended the standards of our common humanity.”…U.S. diplomacy has remained mostly in the hands of Obama’s special envoy to Sudan, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, who is pushing toward normalized relations with the only country in the world led by a president indicted on war-crimes charges” –ConservativeAmerican.org notes: I thought you lefties that were against the Iraq war wanted us to get in Darfur right away! Well, where are your liberal friends now?! Not in the White House!
  86. Obama’s “Order” for Transparency Falling on Deaf Ears in Government 9/30/9 – Fox News & the Associated Press: “Obama’s first public act in office was to order more government transparency. He revoked Bush’s November 2001 executive order allowing past presidents to exert executive privilege to keep some of their White House papers private. Obama also instructed federal agencies to be more responsive to FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests…(Hopwever,) the Federal Aviation Administration, for example, tried to hide its database of bird strikes on airplanes from AP reporters probing the Hudson River landing of a plane crippled by a flock of geese, (AP CEO) Curley said. The agency “stalled the reporters while it looked for a way to put all the information beyond the reach of FOIA by imposing a special regulation.” Among the FAA’s concerns, he said, was that the reporting of bird strikes was unreliable and that any comparison of one airport with another would be unfair. Officials cited an exemption that allows the FAA to withhold safety and security information voluntarily submitted to aviation regulators. The information was “of deep and obvious interest to air travelers,” Curley told the committee.” While public pressure eventually led to the release of the information, clearly the FAA did not get the Obama memo to be more transparent!
  87. President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board Member in Trouble 9/30/9 Billionaire Penny Pritzker is on the Economic Recovery Advisory Board. She’s also on the board at Hyatt Hotels which just fired a bunch of housekeepers out East! David Whitford at Fortune Magazine writes: “Pritzker, whose cousin, Tom Pritzker, is chairman, and whose family controls most of the company’s stock…(Penny Pritzker) was national finance chair for the Obama campaign. Once a candidate for Commerce secretary, she settled for a seat on the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board…Here’s what Hyatt did: At 3 o’clock on a Monday afternoon, Aug. 31, managers at two Hyatt-owned hotels in Boston and one Hyatt-managed hotel in Cambridge, in a coordinated effort, summoned their entire housekeeping staffs, fired everybody on the spot, and immediately outsourced the jobs to a staffing company based in Atlanta…most of the 98 fired housekeepers were immigrant women; that some of them had been working for Hyatt for more than 20 years…Sounds like something the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board might want to look into.” – The Chicago Tribune noted, “The 2001 collapse of Hinsdale, Ill.-based Superior Bank, which her family co-owned, could be a potential source of controversy for Pritzker in confirmation hearings for any Cabinet nomination. The bank failed amid charges of fraud and mismanagement as it pursued a national business in subprime mortgage lending.”
  88. Author says Bill Ayers helped with Obama’s Book 9/30/9 Breitbart.tv reports that author Christopher Andersen writes in his new book that Ayers helped with the Obama book, Dreams from my Father. “These oral histories, along with a partial manuscript and a truckload of notes, were given to Ayers. “Everyone knew they were friends and that they worked on various projects together,” another Hyde Park neighbor pointed out. “It was no secret. Why would it be? People liked them both.” In the end, Ayers’s contribution to Barack’s Dreams From My Father would be significant–so much so that the book’s language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers’s own writing…thanks to help from the veteran writer Ayers, Barack would be able to submit a manuscript to his editors at Times Books.” — ConservativeAmerican.org comments: So much for Ayers just being a guy in Obama’s neighborhood! UPDATE 10/6/9: Ayers quips with Conservative blogger Anne Leary that he wrote the book…Says he’ll split the royalties with Leary if she can prove it.
  89. Obama Appointment Scandal # 81 (& Lobbyist Scandal # 9) – Patrick Gaspard 9/30/9 Obama’s latest scandal is the naming of an SEIU Lobbyist who used to work for ACORN to work in the White House!! The American Spectator: “…longtime ACORN operative Patrick Gaspard…holds the title of White House political affairs director…Evidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration, Gaspard was ACORN boss Bertha Lewis’s political director in New York…Gaspard registered as a federal lobbyist for SEIU on Oct. 22, 2007…Erick Erickson of the website RedState…reported that Gaspard figures prominently in Lewis’s rolodex, which Erickson has in his possession.” UPDATE 10/2/9 The Liberal Leaning so-called “Politifact” website (which the libs like to point out won a Pulitzer Prize) says Gaspard was NOT tied to ACORN. They also claim to have a list of Obama’s broken promises and lies. They miss so many of them, the site is a joke. Our site gets criticized for listing too many. However, we challenge you to find one that isn’t true. We back up our information with names, dates, sources, links, data and information.
  90. Obama’s War Money for Earmarks Scandal 10/1/9 – While Obama promised to get rid of pork and “earmarks” for special projects, he allows 59 pork projects from money that is meant to be used to help our troops! In the middle of two wars, he is diverting troop money to special projects in the districts of republicans and democrats. From CNN
  91. Obama Apology Tour # 10 – Bashes America in Speech to IOC! 10/2/9 Respected Liberal Juan Williams on Fox News last night reported that President Obama bashed America and previous administrations in his speech to try to convince the International Olympic Committee that the U.S.A. is okay again, now that HE is the President! Watch it from YouTube!
    VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    Karl Rove said Obama made the Chicago bid for the Olympics all about HIMSELF instead of about Chicago and the U.S.A.! Michelle Obama also made the speech all about HER. Her bizarre behavior in delivering a speech about the death of her father as a way to help get the Olympics to come to Chicago (??!!), may have cost the U.S. the 2016 games!
  92. Michelle Obama Makes up Her “Best Childhood Memories!” 10/2/9 I’m not sure the Obama’s have the ability to tell the truth. I don’t think it is in them. Michelle Obama said one of her best childhood memories was sitting on her Daddy’s lap and watching Carl Lewis win in the Olympics….She was 20 at the time and Rush Limbaugh says her father was already infirm by then. Watch for yourself…

  93. Obama Increases Health Care Costs for the Military!! 10/4/9 The Biloxi-Gulfport, Mississippi Sun Herald reports: “Defense health officials didn’t do the Obama administration any favor Wednesday when they announced a “small” increase in the daily fee that military retirees under 65, their families and covered survivors must pay for inpatient care in civilian hospitals under Tricare Standard starting Oct. 1. The jump, in fact, for working age retirees and their families is $110 per day, a 20.6 percent increase. Tricare Standard is the military’s fee-for-service insurance option…Families of active duty members who use Standard for civilian hospital stays will see a more modest increase in their daily charge, from $15.65 a day to $16.30, or $25 per admission, whichever is greater. The increase for retirees stunned and angered at least one service association.“This shocking announcement is extremely disappointing, given your public assurances earlier this year that the Defense Department would not be proposing any Tricare fee increases for [fiscal] 2010,” retired Navy Vice Adm. Norbert R. Ryan Jr., president of the Military Officers Association of America told Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Ryan’s protest letter was sent hours after Tricare officials unveiled their new inpatient fees for Standard.
  94. Obama’s Broken Timeline Promises 10/5/9 Caroline Myss writing at the ultra-liberal Huffington Post says President obama has broken timeline promises more than once. “he has made the mistake more than once — the foolish mistake — of promising to complete projects by certain dates, like closing Gitmo by January 2010 and signing off on the Health Care Reform Bill by the summer break. (Now the date is moved to Thanksgiving.) All those broken promises do is give the Republicans yet another failure they can use in the next presidential election. And he has yet to show that he has the capacity to lead with fire in his gut.” – Ouch. Pretty tough words from his friends!
  95. Obama Regulating Bloggers 10/5/9 – President Obama is having the Federal Trade Commission regulate bloggers. It’s a small move, but the first foot in the door of controlling blog content…and that’s a bad thing. Fox News says the new rules will require: “writers on the Web to clearly disclose any freebies or payments they get from companies for reviewing their products. The FTC said Monday its commissioners voted 4-0 to approve the final Web guidelines, which had been expected. Violating the rules, which take effect Dec. 1, could bring fines up to $11,000 per violation. Bloggers or advertisers also could face injunctions and be ordered to reimburse consumers for financial losses stemming from inappropriate product reviews.”
  96. Obama: The White Coats are Coming! The White Coats are Coming! 10/5/9 CBS News reports that Obama staged a White House rally today with doctors who were all given white coats to wear so they’d look more like…well, doctors! “The White House said the group “Doctors for America,” which advocates health care reform, distributed the labs coats to the doctors…Republican National Committee emailed reporters a Wall Street Journal editorial from three former presidents of the American Medical Association in which they complained that by inviting only supporters to the event Mr. Obama “missed an opportunity to learn more about the real issues facing patients and doctors and to formulate a plan that truly puts patients in control with doctors as trusted advisers. One easy reform would be to enable individuals to buy policies offered in any state, not just where they live,” they write. “This will enhance competition. But more government-run health insurance will only lead to disaster.”
  97. Obama Telling Seven Companies How Much they Can Pay Executives! 10/6/9 In a grotesque overstepping of authority, the socialist Obama administration is planning to tell seven companies how much they can pay top executives and how they can be paid! What happened to our America?! Fox News reports on Obama’s Pay Czar, Kenneth Feinberg: “Feinberg is expected to issue by mid-October his determination on compensation packages for 175 of the most-highly compensated executives and employees at the seven firms he oversees. The companies are: American International Group Inc., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., General Motors Co., GMAC Financial Services Inc., Chrysler LLC and Chrysler Financial.The move will further reshape pay at those firms and could complicate efforts by some of those seven companies to attract top executives and employees.The issue could be particularly acute for Bank of America, which is searching for a successor to Kenneth Lewis, who announced plans to resign as chief executive of the company last week.” ConservativeAmerican.org notes: This is an outrageous attack on capitalism from the White House! UPDATE 10/21/9: Fox News reports, “The Obama administration plans to order companies that received the most money from the $700 billion Wall Street bailout to slash pay to top executives, a government source told Fox Business Network. Under the plan, the seven companies that received the most government aid will have to cut annual salaries by about 90 percent from last year for the 25 highest-paid executives.
  98. Obama Appointment Scandal # 82 -Susan Crawford 10/6/9 – Interenet Czar Susan Crawford is yet another Obama appointment with ties to the scandal-plaqued ACORN group! Phil Kerpen writes at Fox News, “As Bill Collier of Freedomist has reported, Crawford has known ties to ACORN, which is one of the participating organizations of her “OneWebDay” project. Crawford self-consciously modeled OneWebDay on Earth Day and the radical environmental agenda that it propelled forward. As Crawford explained her mission to The Wall Street Journal in April: “We should do a better job as a nation of making sure fast, affordable broadband is as ubiquitous as electricity, water, snail mail, or any other public utility.” In other words, the agenda of her organization is to transform access to the Internet into a government entitlement project, with all the necessary government intrusion and control in order guarantee it to everyone—in the world. Not surprisingly, listed alongside on the OneWebDay participating organizations list is a group called Free Press, which is the biggest advocacy organization pushing the Obama administration to adopt sweeping regulations of the Internet. Free Press was founded by Robert McChesney, an avowed Marxist who is Washington’s leading advocate of so-called network neutrality regulations who recently argued—on a Web site called SocialistProject.ca—that this type of Internet regulation is a prerequisite for a socialist revolution: “Instead of waiting for the revolution to happen, we learned that unless you make significant changes in the media, it will be vastly more difficult to have a revolution.” Crawford and McChesney apparently have the full support of the Obama administration and an FCC that is determined to move toward transforming the Internet into a Washington-controlled utility as quickly as possible. The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Julius Genachowski, recently announced his pursuit of precisely the regulations they want.
  99. Obama Appointment Scandal # 83 -Richard Holbrooke 10/6/9 Obama’s Afghanistan Czar is Richard Holbrooke, a former Hillary Clinton campaign adviser and previously served as an Assistant Secretary of State and a U.N. Ambassador. According to Portfolio.com, he’s also one of those to get a special real estate deal from Countrywide! “(Holbrooke) received loans from Countrywide Financial through a little-known program that waived points, lender fees, and company borrowing rules for prominent people…known in company documents and emails as “F.O.A.’s”—Friends of Angelo, a reference to Countrywide chief executive Angelo Mozilo.” UPDATE 10/24/9: “Caving to months of pressure from congressional Republicans, the chairman of the House oversight committee agreed Friday to subpoena documents from Countrywide Financial Corporation about its VIP loan program that offered special mortgages to members of Congress and other influential figures. Sens. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., and Kent Conrad, D-N.D., both received loans from the so-called “Friends of Angelo” program, a reference to the company’s former CEO Angelo Mozilo, now charged with insider trading and securities fraud by the SEC.”
  100. Michelle Obama Created a Chicago Health Plan to REDUCE Service to “Poor, Black, Medicare and Medicaid Patients!!!” 10/7/9 GetLiberty.org has a very interesting story up about the first lady getting involved in creating a new health care plan. No, it’s not Hillary Clinton this time…it’s Michelle Obama. From writers Richard McCarthy and Carter Clews: “Several years ago a wealthy, well-respected Chicago hospital realized that it had a problem: Too many poor, black, Medicare and Medicaid patients were “seeping” into the hospital’s emergency room. Since it has been illegal for two decades to just drop indigent patients off at competitors’ hospitals, what could the University of Chicago Medical Center do? Enter Michelle Obama. To solve this problem, Susan Sher, Vice President for Legal and Government Affairs, hired her friend Michelle Obama in 2002. Mrs. Obama was hired as Executive Director for Community Affairs. Michelle Obama immediately understood the problem. She declared, “The world is seeping in, and our salvation will be the success of our partners” (i.e., alternative, less hoity-toity medical facilities). To deal with the “seepage” problem, Mrs. Obama helped create the so-called…“Urban Health Initiative”. This program aimed to reduce the number of non-paying patients utilizing UCMC’s emergency room. And it did so by instituting a highly selective program that redirects poor patients to other medical facilities with decidedly less advanced technology – not to mention, less prestigious clientele — than UCMC…Upon entrance to the UCMC emergency room, patients are now greeted by a “patient advocate” whose job it is to convince them to seep over to some other, less exclusive medical facility. Free short-bus shuttles are even provided to haul the willing off. To add insult to injury, this program was started with a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. Which means the working poor are helping to finance their own neglect.” You have to read the rest of their story! No wonder she has never been proud of her country!
  101. Obama Gives A Million Bucks to ACORN through Homeland Security! 10/7/9 The Rush Limbaugh Show reports, “Washington Times. I wasn’t making it up. “Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN, despite a clear signal from Congress that it intends to cut off federal funding to [ACORN]. The grant to ACORN’s Louisiana office became public [five days ago], less than three weeks after the House and Senate voted to cut off ACORN funding after employees were caught on video advising a fake prostitute and pimp on scams.”
  102. Obama Nobel Peace Prize Scandal 10/9/9 The outrageously liberal Nobel Prize Committee gives the Peace Prize to Obama for 12 days as President and zero accomplishments!!! Obama said he doesn’t deserve the prize. He also asked when he gets the check that goes with the prize! I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize,” he said.Obama will go to Oslo in December to accept the honor, which includes a $1.4 million award. — ConservativeAmerican.org notes: BTW, if Sarah Palin as Governor of Alaska had won, she would not have been able to accept the prize money because of strong ethical standards. Can Obama accept this prize money?!
  103. Obama Backs Down on Promise to Respect and Protect Freedom of Conscience on Abortion! 10/9/9 Ed Morrissey at Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air website, and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty report that the promise Obama made during his commencement talk at Notre Dame is already being broken. “The president of a small Catholic college in North Carolina is in a standoff with the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) over demands that the school must offer contraception coverage in its employee health insurance. Belmont Abbey College President William K. Thierfelder says he will shut down his school before doing so, citing the Catholic Church’s prohibition on contraception and First Amendment religious liberty rights. On September 10, the college retained the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty to appeal an August 5 ruling by the EEOC, charging the school with discrimination. In a letter to Thierfelder, the EEOC stated the college “is discriminating based on gender because only females take oral prescription contraceptives. By denying coverage, men are not affected, only women.” Thierfelder objected with a letter posted on the school’s website, saying: “Belmont Abbey College rejects the notion that by following the moral teachings of the Catholic Church we are discriminating against anyone.… We are simply and honestly exercising the freedom of religion that is protected by the Constitution.” – – The Gateway Pundit story on forcing abortion on Catholics is here. More at The Anchoress.
  104. Obama’s Press Spinster Lies about Abortion Coverage in the ObamaCare Nightmare! 10/10/9 Kathryn Lopez catches another White House distortion: “A reporter referred to a letter from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, addressed to lawmakers: “So far the health reform bills considered in the committee, including the new Senate Finance Committee bill, have not met the president’s challenge of barring the use of federal dollars for abortion.” The reporter asked: “Is that statement wrong?” Gibbs responded: “Well, I don’t want to get me in trouble at church, but I would mention there’s a law that precludes the use of federal funds for abortion. That isn’t going to be changed in these health care bills.” The reporter pressed: “There have been, though, several amendments that would explicitly bar abortions, that would therefore reject it …” Gibbs insisted: “Again, there’s a fairly well documented federal law that prevents it.” Gibbs was being dishonest. He was clearly talking about the Hyde Amendment, a 1976 provision that bans federal funding of abortions for Medicaid recipients; it was attached as a rider on a Medicaid allocation bill. The reporter and the bishops, of course, were not talking about appropriations bills. They were focused on the health-care reform revolution upon which President Obama has set so much of his reputation…If the so-called “public option” plan or “affordability credits,” which are premium subsidies, come to pass, abortion funding will be very much on the table, and possibly part of the law. In fact, in an amendment added to the predominant House bill, federal funding for abortion is explicitly required in the credits scenario.”
  105. Harry Reid Says Obama is Lying About the Cost of Health Care Reform! 10/15/9 – Democart Harry Reid goofed up recently admitting the cost of the ObamaCare Nightmare is a full $2-Trillion dollars! If that’s true, it means that President Obama lied when Reason.com reports he said, “Add it all up, and the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over ten years,” he said, trying hard to sound like those numbers weren’t pulled out of Joe Biden’s pants, and won’t be dwarfed by actual costs within a year or two.”
  106. Is Obama Misleading Americans about How Many Troops are in Afghanistan? 10/16/9 – Lorne Gunter at the National Post reports, “Obama has sent 13,000 more troops to Afghanistan than he has admitted. In addition to the 21,000 extra combat troops the White House has announced since the inauguration, 13,000 engineers, doctors, medics, nurses, intelligence experts and military police have also been deployed at Mr. Obama’s command. Since soldiers cannot fight without roads and bridges, hospitals and battlefield surgeons and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the enemy’s position, it is useless to claim–as the White House has — that these “support personnel” should not be counted. Of course they should, just as cooks and clerks and mechanics are…imagine if former president Bush had been caught sending thousands of extra troops without admitting he was doing so. The hue and cry would have been deafening. “Bush lied, people died,” screamed a bumper sticker popular among Democrats during the Iraq war. Well, President Obama has now been caught in a lie that will lead to deaths, but instead of outrage, he gets one of the world’s most prestigious prizes –for making peace…giving it to the commander-in-chief of an army that is misleading its citizenry about the size of its deployment into a war zone to prevent negative political fallout.”
  107. Obama Angers Democrats with Broken New Orleans Promise 10/16/9 – Liberal columnist Eugene Robinson notes in the Washington Post, “President Obama’s brief display of drive-by compassion Thursday in New Orleans was, for me, by far the worst outing of his presidency thus far — and the biggest disappointment. I covered Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath…I had trouble sleeping. I couldn’t forget the scenes I’d witnessed or the stories I’d heard. More than a year later, I covered a Senate subcommittee hearing in New Orleans on the lagging reconstruction effort. I watched as a young senator who was thought to be considering a presidential run — that would be Barack Obama — used his Harvard Law skills to eviscerate Bush-era officials for not doing enough to rebuild and revive the Gulf Coast region. So it was strange and disheartening that Obama would wait nine months to make his first visit to New Orleans as president. It was stunning that he would spend only a few hours on the ground and that he wouldn’t set foot in Mississippi or Alabama at all. But worst of all was the way he seemed to dismiss the idea that his administration could and should be doing much more.” ConservativeAmerican.org: Ouch! And that’s all from a democrat!

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.
