Quin, well said… I think. We’re keeping track of his oleaginous triteness for you. We even put it in words people can understand!
The list below contains all of the Obama Administration mistakes, blunders, broken promises, flip flops, gaffes, lies, etc. That’s too long of a name, so we called it “the Official Obama Administration Scandals List.” This list covers Barack Obama and his pals from day one through September 4th, 2011.

10/19/10 We’re not thinking clearly?! The Obama quote from Fox News: “”People out there are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared. And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said at a Democratic fundraiser Saturday in Boston. “And the country is scared, and they have good reason to be.”” — Well, ConservativeAmerican.org says he at least got the last part right! We have reason to be scared of our nation’s first Socialist President! What would Obama know about “facts and science and argument?!” He lies every time he opens his mouth, has a lunatic science czar who wants forced sterilization of teens for population control and his ‘arguments’ are full of nearly 1,700 broken promises, lies, flip-flops and scandals!!! Americans are indeed thinking clearly, Mr. B-Rock, sir. And you and your pals are outta here!
10/19/10 World Net Daily reports: “Despite its history of friendly relations with Israel, the U.S. has been aiding Palestinian Authority construction in areas where the work could tilt the outcome of Mideast negotiations in favor of the Palestinians. By aiding Palestinian construction of infrastructure in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, the U.S. has effectively been helping the PA create facts on the ground that could push disputed neighborhoods toward becoming part of a Palestinian state, including areas where the land in question is wholly owned by Jews… Some of the U.S.-funded construction has been carried out by a company owned by the son of PA President Mahmoud Abbas.” –ConservativeAmerican.org reacts: OMG! Your tax dollars are being used to help out the Abbas terrorist family?! This is nuts.
10/20/2010 Freedom’s Lighthouse catches the bizarre statement from VP Joey Buttafuoco Biden: ““This guy has a backbone like a ramrod. I kid him – he’s got a brain bigger than his skull…” – Say what? Soooo, part of his brain is not in the President’s head? Hmmm. That could explain a few things!
10/20/10 Four more years of George W. Bush? President Obama has continued the Bush policy of allowing Iran to interfere in two U.S. wars, almost daily, without any consequences. More news today from Fox on the interference: “Two weeks ago Afghan officials intercepted a shipment of Iranian weapons en route to the Taliban in the Afghan province of Nimroz. “The police chief of Nimroz announced that they had intercepted a couple tons of Iranian explosives marked as food and toys,” said Michael Rubin of the American Enterprise Institute, who just returned from a two week visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Until recently U.S. military commanders would quietly slip journalists information about the unhelpful role that Iran and its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were playing in Afghanistan. A role that often provides some of the same support and weaponry to the Taliban that it did to militant groups that were fighting U.S. troops in Iraq…” — ConservativeAmerican.org asks why military commanders are “quiet” about this?! Quiet about enemies attacking our soldiers? What kind of upside down insane world is this? Oh, and let’s be careful not to insult the Iranians, let’s just call them “unhelpful” as they kill U.S. Troops! Will they ever face any consequence from this administration? Or will Obama continue the Bush policy for another two years? This tolerance of Iran helping to kill our military volunteers is indeed a scandal. The lame-stream media should pay more attention to this. I won’t hold my breath.
10/20/2010 Supposedly campaigning for Senator Patty Murray, Biden “committed a gaffe when he told the audience, assembled miles from the 3rd Congressional District, that voting for Heck would be in their best interest. He did not mention Heck’s campaign in his remarks Tuesday.” –ConservativeAmerican.org notes that Biden had campaigned for congressional candidate Denny Heck about a week earlier. Oops.
10/21/2010 Joy Lin reports at Fox News: “Fifty thousand jobs. That’s the number of wind farm jobs the Obama Administration says were created by stimulus funding in 2009. Only problem? They’re taking credit for jobs created during former President George W. Bush’s term. The Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University found that, of the 70 major wind farms that received $4.4 billion in federal energy grants through the stimulus program, 11 stood up their wind towers during the Bush Administration. More than a quarter of the wind farms, a total of 19, were built before any stimulus money was distributed…” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out you could say Obama “Inherited” these jobs from Bush!!
10/21/2010 From RedState: “The basic claim of the left and the media is this: Citizens United allowed (a) a new flood of corporate money that is (b) completely undisclosed. Both (a) and (b) are false. The first point, that this decision will, to quote the President from his State of the Union speech, “open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections,” is simply false… Even that profoundly right-wing news outlet, the New York Times, points out that the White House’s narrative is simply not true…”
10/22/2010 Rasmussen reports: “How many “Big Lies” has Obama told? Frankly, it’s becoming difficult to keep track of them. Most recently, the top actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid – a pair of programs that shouldn’t even exist in the first place – revealed that millions of American seniors will have to pay increased out-of-pocket health care costs next year for “less generous benefit packages” as a direct result of Obamacare. This is due to government’s failure to acknowledge basic economic realities – which is already costing taxpayers hundreds of billions each year (even as these programs’ unfunded liabilities continue to soar)…” –ConservativeAmerican.org special note to article author Howard Rich: Don’t worry Howard, we’ll continue that difficult task to keep track of Obama’s Big Lies!!
10/22/2010 Investors Business Daily is reporting that Fannie Mae, Tammy Faye, and Freddie Mac will need hundreds of billions in additional tax dollars to keep screwing up the housing market! “The latest figure nearly doubles earlier projections, making Washington’s role in home finance even harder to defend. The federally controlled mortgage giants will now need as much as $215 billion more from taxpayers in the next three years to stay solvent. That’s on top of the $148 billion Treasury already has injected into Fannie and Freddie. The Obama administration says the new infusion of cash should cover their losses. But it assumes housing prices will bounce back soon, even though private forecasters don’t see a recovery for years…”
10/23/2010 Just the other day we told you about First Lady Michelle’s sneak into a Milwaukee fast food place for a cheeseburger and fries. Now NBC in Philadelphia reports cheeseburgers and fries are something the first lady sneaks quite often! “Five Guys Burgers and Fries has stolen the hearts of burger lovers everywhere, even the White House. In fact, Michelle Obama has admitted to sneaking out to grab a bite of this guilty pleasure. “I went to Five Guys and nobody knew it,” she told children visiting the White House, “It was good.” — ConservativeAmerican.org likes a good cheeseburger and fries too, even from Five Guys. However, we don’t go around telling everyone else not to eat them. So on TV Michelle says kids should eat better, but in person she tells them how cool it is to sneak off to Five Guys!!
10/23/2010 The Washington Examiner: “Remember President Obama’s harsh words for that “army of industry lobbyists from Wall Street”? Remember how Obama claimed lobbyists wouldn’t work in his administration? I wonder if Thomas Nides does. During the Wall Street regulation debate, Nides was chairman of the board of industry’s top lobby group, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA). In his SIFMA role, Nides wasn’t registered as a lobbyist, but at Morgan Stanley, he had been a registered lobbyist. And, as is obligatory for Democratic moneymen, Nides was an executive at Fannie Mae. Now, Nides is in line to be the No. 2 at the State Department…”
10/23/2010 Mitchell Bard sums up the case nicely at Fox News; “The Obama administration has announced plans to sell $60 billion worth of military equipment and services, the largest weapons sale in U.S. history, to Saudi Arabia, a country that supports terrorists who seek our destruction, violates the human rights of its citizens, believes Jews are apes and Christians are pigs and obstructs American efforts to facilitate a Middle East peace agreement. Though the sale may be couched in terms of national security, no one should be fooled that this is anything but a political gambit to allow Obama to claim credit for saving or creating thousands of jobs in the defense industry…”
10/23/2010 Everyone, including His Barackness, President Obama remembers First Lady Nancy Reagan and her unusual comments about astrology. Remember the Obama Gaffe? “I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any seances,” Obama said, a reference to Nancy Reagan talking with Astrologers while she was living in the White House. Smooth. Well it seems his wife, Queen Michelle, believes in unclean spirits hanging around her and her husband. Her comments in Milwaukee (her favorite place to say stupid things… that’s where she said it was the first time she had ever been proud of her country) went mostly unnoticed. Glenn Thrush and Kendra Marr at Politico noticed: “Everybody I know in our communities [is] praying for us,” she said, adopting a religious theme seldom used by her husband — and landing her on top of The Drudge Report, a space she occupied with some regularity two years ago. “Every day we feel that, and let me just tell your listeners, it means the world to us to know that there are prayer circles out there and people who want to keep the spirits clean around us,” she added.” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out Nancy was called nuts for consulting the “stars,” while no one seemed to notice Michelle Obama stating her odd belief that unclean spirits may be around her and her husband!! If it were true, it could explain some things.
10/24/2010 The President used to tell his democrat party reporters that ObamaCare was not a tax. Reason magazine says several judges have pointed out this Obama flip-flop! “…Judge Hudson seemed irritated with the Obama administration for selling the public on the idea that the law isn’t a tax and then trying to sell the court on the idea that it is. He isn’t the first judge to point out the administration’s rhetorical bait and switch, either: In Florida, Judge Roger Vinson, reviewing a similar case on the constitutionality of the mandate, scolded the government for its “Alice in Wonderland” rhetoric on the question of whether the mandate is or is not a tax. David Barnes at E21 seems to think that the administration lost this section of the argument. But if nothing else, the White House’s messaging flip flops have made making their case marginally more difficult by annoying several of the judges…”
10/24/2010 ABC News’s Sunlen Miller has the strange Obama quote from New York: “After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want to keys back. No! You can’t drive. We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.”– ConservativeAmerican.org asks, Just Got the Car Out?! You mean you stole the car!!! This from the guy who illegally stole GM and Chrysler, illegally fired the GM CEO, and illegally gave away the company to his union special interests!! We note the President said giving the keys back to republicans would mean returning power to the special interests. Oh Really?! Even Obama used to admit UNIONS are special interests. The 55 lobbyists on his “no lobbyists I promise” team, and his party controlled SEIU and AFSCME unions are the REAL special interests! Obama stole GM from its creditors, gave it away to his own political party through giving ownership to the UAW, and is trying so hard to hang on to the keys. The only one punch drunk, dazed and confused Mr. President, is you! We’ll take those keys back on November 2nd, sir.
10/25/10 Fox News: “The mortgage-interest deduction and other sacrosanct tax breaks are on the deficit commission’s table as it works toward its deadline of providing a set of recommendations on balancing the budget by 2015. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that hugely popular tax breaks are part of the commission’s consideration since they add up to about $1 trillion in potential government revenue. ” — ConservativeAmerican.org says, Cute. Obama needs to come up with $1-trillion he can redistribute to pay for his ObamaCare Nightmare. So if you are rich enough to afford to pay interest on your mortgage, your money may soon be redistributed to pay for ObamaCare!
10/26/10 The most divisive President in U.S. History is desperate for votes next week and is playing the race card to get them. OBAMA: “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.” — a clear reference to black people having to sit in the back of the bus years ago. A republican would be impeached for such a racial slur; “Democrats have to sit in the back of the bus!” OMG! Rush Hudson Limbaugh agrees with us, asking on his radio show today what would happen to him if he made a comment like this!
10/26/10 Appearing on a Latino radio show yesterday, Obama was asked why he hasn’t given immigration reform the same level of attention he paid to the ObamaCare Nightmare. “I am President, I’m not King,” Obama admitted. The President suggested Latino Americans should not focus on his failures and his Latino Let Down “…instead of saying we’re going to punish our enemies” He is dividing Americans instead of bringing us together! Rush Limbaugh says “This just shows how race-obsessed Barack Obama is.”
10/26/10 From Daniel Indiviglio at the Atlantic: “…the administration has lost its passion for candidness. Over just the past few days, on three separate occasions the Treasury has been taken to task for its efforts to obscure the facts… Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program Neil Barofsky… says that the Treasury concealed $40 billion in likely losses for taxpayers from the AIG rescue. That’s not exactly peanuts. He further asserts that the Treasury is providing incomplete information, and calls this an “failure in their transparency.”
10/26/10 Bob Ivry at Bloomberg reports on the next one: “The late Bloomberg News reporter Mark Pittman asked the U.S. Treasury in January 2009 to identify $301 billion of securities owned by Citigroup Inc. that the government had agreed to guarantee. He made the request on the grounds that taxpayers ought to know how their money was being used. More than 20 months later, after saying at least five times that a response was imminent, Treasury officials responded with 560 pages of printed-out e-mails — none of which Pittman requested. They were so heavily redacted [the important stuff blacked out] that most of what’s left are everyday messages such as “Did you just try to call me?” and “Monday will be a busy day!”
10/26/10 J.P. Freire at the Washington Examiner: “Officials at the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Stability contracted with a small consulting firm that has given nearly $25,000 to Democratic candidates since 2005 (and no money to Republicans) to hire “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Analysts to support the Disclosure Services, Privacy and Treasury Records.” The firm is currently advertising a job opening for a FOIA analyst with experience in the “Use of FOIA/PA exemptions to withhold information from release to the public” — So much for transparency!!
10/26/10 From Daniel Indiviglio at the Atlantic: “How a 36% Return Is Really a 5.6% Return – Finally, the Treasury also appears to have engaged in a little more creative accounting regarding their toxic asset portfolio… Dr. Linus Wilson University of Louisiana at Lafayette… “If you take a simple average of the eight fund returns, you get a 36% annualized return… Two thirds of the taxpayer’s investment is in debt: Taxpayers are receiving a meager 1% return on two thirds of their investment — only the one third that is in equity is doing well.”
10/26/10 Just the other day Obama’s Valerie Jarrett put her leg in her mouth when she said being gay was a lifestyle choice. Now she is lying about the White House being “required” to defend the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy in court. The website, The New Civil Rights Movement reports: ““Jarrett stated that DOJ “has no choice but to defend the laws that are on the books.” That’s just not true. She should know better by now, especially since the Obama DOJ has refused to enforce a number of laws. Even Ted Olson says they don’t have to appeal. But she keeps saying it. “Then, when Wolf Blitzer asked her why the President doesn’t say the law is unconstitutional, she claims he’s done just that. That question HAS NOT been answered. It’s simply not true.”
10/26/10 President Obama said in February, “In a lot of states, the problem is just you don’t have competition at all. We want competition.” Uh-huh, suuuuuuuure you do. You lie! What Obama really wants is no competition, government-run healthcare. The Wall Street Journal reports ObamaCare “actively promotes provider consolidation” and a “wave of consolidation is washing over… with almost no public scrutiny… and the result is going to be higher costs… the most concrete effect of this wave of consolidation may be to increase private health spending significantly… the health bill… is leading to much larger hospital systems and physician groups, and fewer insurers dominated by a handful of national conglomerates.” — ConservativeAmerican.org interjects: Conglomo running Healthcare?! That’s what the libs voted for? I thought they hated fat-cat CEO’s working out deals for huge corporations in smoke-filled rooms of corporate jet airline hangars!! WSJ: “ObamaCare was sold using the language of choice and competition, but it is actually reducing both.”
10/26/10 The Wall Street Journal reports “a major goal of ObamaCare is to convert these companies [1,200 insurers doing business in the U.S.] into de facto public utilities… Medium-sized carriers will collapse… State insurance commissioners warned the [Obama] Administration this month that “improper or overly strident application… could threaten the solvency of insurers or significantly reduce competition in some insurance markets.” They also implied that bankruptcies are likely”
10/26/10 The Wall Street Journal reports “Size is also important in a low-margin business…” — ConservativeAmerican.org points out the obvious WSJ error: they said “low-margin” business referring to Insurance Companies. That can’t be true! The Libs keep saying these insurance companies are filled with rich, white, corporate-jet flying CEO’s! back to the WSJ: “Once insurers lose the freedom to design their own products, they’ll essentially be selling commodities and survival will depend on enrollment volume and market share.”
10/26/10 The Wall Street Journal reports “Hospitals are now on a buying spree of private physician practices… Doctors are selling because complying with the ever-growing list of mandates has become more cumbersome.” When docs sell to Democrat-Created Conglomo Health, “they also lose the autonomy of independent practice.” So your doc may still be in business, but he’ll be working for Conglomo, which may not be covered by your plan!! The WSJ also notes: “Hospitals are also scooping up practices to lock in referral sources and make up for ObamaCare’s Medicare cuts.” ConservativeAmerican.org wonders if the left
heard that… “ObamaCare’s Medicare CUTS!” “As it is, two-thirds of hospitals lose money today on Medicare inpatient services, according to Medicare.”
10/27/10 Truthout website has quite an interesting take on the CIA investigation into a the deaths of 7 agents in Afghanistan. “Panetta acknowledged that the review was prepared by senior officers of the CIA’s counterintelligence division, that the report would be provided to the OIG in “keeping with past practice,”… Panetta is being totally disingenuous in declaring that the sharing of the report with the OIG was consistent with “past practice.” The report, of course, should have been prepared in the OIG, which is exactly what previous practice dictated over the past 20 years. In assigning the report to the counterintelligence division, Panetta clearly allowed one of the divisions negligent in the vetting of the suicide bomber, a double agent, to protect colleagues from harm to their careers… Panetta’s failure to assign the review to the new statutory IG, who was confirmed last month, was a blatant challenge to the legislative creation of a statutory or “independent” IG in the wake of the Iran-Contra scandal of the mid-1980s.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes this isn’t the first time Obama has been in trouble for skipping inspectors general!
10/28/10 Ken Boehm at Breitbart reports on this “coincidence”: “the White House blog asked “as special interest billionaires continued to pour secret donations of millions of dollars each into front groups supporting Republicans, we asked the obvious question: “What do they expect in return?“” …People in glass White Houses shouldn’t throw stones. * “Google’s Marissa Mayer is hosting President Obama for a Democratic party fundraiser tonight. Tickets are $30,000-a-head….” – San Francisco Chronicle, October 21, 2010 * “After analyzing the unencrypted WiFi payload data captured by its Street View cars, Google now admits that the system captured entire e-mails, URLs and even user passwords.” – ZDNet, October 23, 2010 * “The Federal Trade Commission [has] closed its investigation into Google’s collection of consumer data through its Street View cars….” San Francisco Chronicle, October 27, 2010..”
10/29/10 Websites Naked Capitalism & What am I Missing Here are reporting on the latest Obamster Fib: ““Claims Financial Crisis Cost Less Than S&L Crisis”, the headline from yesterday’s version of Naked Capitalism, highlights another one of President Obama lies and misleading statements. Frankly, I used to generously refer to Obama’s statements as “misleading”, but so often many of the statements from the President, the White House, and its large group of advisers and “spinners” are now just plain lies, and they know it, and just don’t care… On the Jon Stewart Show, Obama claims the cost of this crisis will be less than 1% of GDP, versus 2.5% for the savings and loan crisis. The reason Obama can claim such phony figures is that many of the costs of saving the financial system are hidden, the biggest being the ongoing transfer from savers to banks of negative real interest rates, which is a covert way to rebuild bank equity. Also, if the big banks (Citigroup, JP Morgan, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo) were to markdown the value of their second mortgage portfolio, this would easily total more than $150 billion, which happens to be over 1% of GDP…” — More here from the American Spectator.
10/29/10 President Obama: “And I know this analogy has been used before, but when Social Security was passed, it was for widows and orphans.” The problem? It’s not true. From the Social Security Administration: “The two major provisions relating to the elderly were Title I- Grants to States for Old-Age Assistance, which supported state welfare programs for the aged, and Title II-Federal Old-Age Benefits. It was Title II that was the new social insurance program we now think of as Social Security.”
10/29/10 This one is up there with Queen Michelle’s overseas vacations. President Obama is skipping town a few days after the election and taking a huge amount of supplies with him! From India Today: “The presidential entourage will have 40 aircraft, including the Air Force One that will ferry the president. There will be six armoured cars, including four Barack Mobiles and a Cadillac. Cadillac is equipped with a mini communication centre to enable Obama to be in touch with the White House, US vice president and the US strategic command. It also has the US nuke launch codes and it can withstand a chemical or germ warfare and a bomb attack. Two secret service command posts will be set up in Delhi and Mumbai to act as the communication nerve centres. These will monitor the president’s movement with real time satellite monitoring. Three Marine One choppers will be reassembled in India to ferry the president and his family and to evacuate them in case of any emergency.” Rush Limbaugh added today that Team Obama has rented the ENTIRE Taj Mahal hotel for the visit! India Today notes Obama is bringing his family along for the ride. Is a trip to India with 40 airplanes the top financial priority of the government right now? Really? For his whole family and hundreds of others too?
10/30/10 Charles Lane at the Washington Post: “For a president who claims to make policy based on “facts and science and argument,” lavishing subsidies on electric cars is an intellectual scandal… the Obama administration’s commitment of $5 billion in loans and grants for electric cars is the biggest taxpayer rip-off since corn-based ethanol. It benefits no one but a few well-to-do car buyers and politically connected companies. Any “green” jobs these rent-seeking firms create will vanish when consumers reject their products and/or the subsidies cease…”
10/30/10 From Sarah Palin on Twitter: “Happy B’day Ahmadinejad wish sent by US Govt. Mind boggling foreign policy: kowtow & coddle enemies; snub allies. Obama Doctrine is nonsense” & “Americans awaken 2 bizarre natl security thinking of Obama Admn: Ahmadinejad b’day greeting after call 4 Israel’s destruction speaks volumes”
10/30/10 Complaints are coming in that illegal aliens will be voting on election day, one way the democrat party cheats to gain victories. So, Obama is sending Justice Department observers to keep an eye on the polls. Good, right? Wrong! They’re not there to make sure illegals don’t vote! They’re showing up to make sure people don’t intimidate minorities and scare them away from the voting booths! OMG! Team Obama doesn’t care if federal law is broken, it only cares how many illegal votes it can count! This is outrageous. We don’t want anyone who is a legal citizen, regardless of skin color, height, weight, etc., to be prevented from voting. All legal citizens should be able to vote. But, for pete’s sake… the Justice Department should be taking steps to make sure illegals DON’T vote! Can we please get a voter ID law?
10/30/10 The Great Agitator got agitated in Bridgeport when AIDS protesters again picketed his appearance. He told a blatant and foolish lie that “the other side” (GOP) isn’t funding the fight against AIDS. FACT: George W. Bush spent more fighting AIDS than Obama is spending. George was a republican. Watch the video yourself…

10/30/10 From the Plum Line: “An interesting moment from Obama’s weekly address: While calling for post-election bipartisan cooperation, he takes an oblique shot at Mitch McConnell for claiming the other day that his number one goal is to ensure that Obama is a “one term president”:(OBAMA) “…I found the recent comments by the top two Republican in Congress so troubling. The Republican leader of the House actually said that “this is not the time for compromise.” And the Republican leader of the Senate said his main goal after this election is simply to win the next one.”
11/02/10 From Fox News: “But already the president has amended a partisan comment he made during an interview with Latino network Univision. In the Oct. 25 interview, Obama said, “If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, we’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us, if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” But in an interview with Michael Baesdin on Monday, Obama said he should have used the word “opponents” instead of “enemies.” “I said, well, you can’t punish your friends when — the folks who’ve been supporting it. Now, I did also say if you’re going to punish somebody, punish your enemies, and I probably should have used the word, ‘opponents’ instead of enemies. Now the Republicans are saying that I’m calling them enemies. What I’m saying is you’re an opponent of this particular provision, comprehensive immigration reform, which is something very different,” he said. That didn’t matter to House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio, who would be poised to be the next House speaker if Republicans regained the majority. “I have a word to describe these people who have the audacity to fight for our Constitution, Mr. President. These people aren’t enemies; they are patriots,” Boehner said at a rally Monday night…”
11/3/10 Remember how Obama campaigned on putting an end to pork projects and earmarks? Remember how he promised to get rid of it, then passed a Porkulus bill with 9,000 earmarks in it? Well, now that he has been handed a huge defeat at the polls, he is again promising to stop pork. Fox News reports, “Pressed for specifics, Obama suggested he’d be open to joining Republicans in calling for a moratorium on earmarks…” – Cute. Now that the GOP would be making the earmarks, he’s not for them anymore!! Hypocrite!
11/3/10 At the humbling (*gag*) Obama press conference today the President said he was open to some limited tax cuts but, as Fox News reported, “…he wants to hear “affirmative” proposals from the GOP on how to fix the economy, claiming tax cuts alone will not do the trick.” – – So, ConservativeAmerican.org asks if the “humbled” Obama really did get the election day message? Yes, we want tax cuts. Yes, that will help the economy even if it is the only thing you do. However, we need huge spending cuts too! That’s probably not what the Bamster had in mind.
11/3/10 I wonder if the President even believes the stuff that comes out of his mouth? From the same man who calls Tea Partiers “Tea Baggers,” and says Latinos should not vote for those on his enemies list, comes word that… deep breath now… word that he still has hope. Oh, thank God for that! OBAMA: “I want to engage both Democrats and Republicans. … I do believe there is hope for civility. I do believe there’s hope for progress.” — We have had enough of his “hope for progress-ives” to last a lifetime. If he was honest (I know, it’s way out there, but hang in there with me), that hopey changey for civility would have to startey with his own vocabulary! What a fake.
11/3/10 At the same press conference today, the Associated Democrat Press reports on the President’s newly stated goal: “my goal is to make sure we don’t have a huge spike in taxes for middle class families.” He made no mention of his campaign-long insistence that tax cuts be permitted to expire on upper-income families, a position he said would avoid swelling the deficit but put him in conflict with Republicans.” – ConservativeAmerican.org calls the President on his latest big fat lie! His goal is make sure the middle class doesn’t have a huge spike in taxes?! Bull! If that is his goal (and it isn’t), he would have already supported and signed an extension of the Bush tax cuts well before the election… a move that could even have allowed his Socialist-Dems to win a few more seats than they did last night!
11/3/10 The election may have already killed Obama’s Crap & Trax bill designed to tax carbon usage to pay to save the earth from the artificial threat of Global Warming, er… uh, Global Climate Change, or whatever they are calling it now. Obama did a u-turn on his own plan today! The Associated Democrat Press reports “He also virtually abandoned his legislation — hopelessly stalled in the Senate — featuring economic incentives to reduce carbon emissions from power plants, vehicles and other sources. “I think people started looking at all this, and it felt as if government was getting much more intrusive into people’s lives than they were accustomed to,” he conceded.” – ConservativeAmerican.org is glad to see it go. This is one flip-flop we’re happy about!
11/5/10 Dan Griswold of the CATO institute tells Fox News: “The president would be wise to drop once and for all the divisive line about shipping jobs overseas — it doesn’t do much politically or diplomatically.” More from Fox: “”India in some ways is a challenging stop for the president because during the campaign, he made a big fuss of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas,” said Griswold. Just last month, President Obama focused on this topic in his weekly address. “For years, our tax code has actually given billions of dollars in tax breaks that encourage companies to create jobs and profits in other countries,” Mr. Obama said who then turned his criticism to the GOP. “Over the last four years alone, Republicans in the House voted 11 times to continue rewarding corporations that create jobs and profits overseas — a policy that costs taxpayers billions of dollars every year. That doesn’t make a lot sense. It doesn’t make sense for American workers, American businesses, or America’s economy.” Of course, the president did acknowledge in this October 16 address that, “A lot of companies that do business internationally make an important contribution to our economy here at home. That’s a good thing.” Nonetheless, experts say the president will have to address his own “divisive” rhetoric once in Asia. “So the president has been on the one hand, in the heat of the campaign, demonizing that economic integration, and on the other hand, he’s going to go over there and what’s he going to say?” asks Griswold. “I think what he’s going to see on the ground over there will be in direct contradiction to the way he was mis-portraying things on the campaign trail,” says Griswold who argues the economic success in Asia, specifically in India, is in part because the country has followed the U.S. model of doing business, and those achievements should be praised.” — ConservativeAmerican.org thinks those are great points. Here’s another: Obama’s Stimulus plan shipped jobs overseas! From our earlier listing on the Scandals List: “REALITY: Recently Distributed Stimulus Funds Going To Foreign Corporations Creating Jobs Overseas. “Nearly half of the $2.4 billion in federal grant money awarded Wednesday to stimulate the U.S. economy and boost the production of hybrid and electric vehicles went to six companies with ties to places as far away as Russia, China, South Korea and France. … But because so few American companies have the necessary technology, much of the money will initially go toward manufacturing electric vehicle batteries overseas.” (Jerry Seper, Obama Sends Stimulus Aid To Foreign Firms, The Washington Times, 8/6/09)”
11/5/10 From Conservative American Saul Anuzis, future RNC Chair, comes this tweet: “Hypocrisy – Obama Outsources Presidential Motorcade: Hyundai Motors is supplying Equus limousines for President Obama’s G-20 visit.”
11/5/10 Fox News: “…the Quechan Indians are charging in a federal suit …in …California… the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management rushed approval of a massive solar energy project in the Imperial Valley that would place more than 28,000 solar dishes across 6,144 acres of public land — and that they neglected to take into consideration the Quechans’ historic and cultural claims to the land. And the project, they say, will endanger the habitat of the Flat Tailed Horned Lizard, which “is a central part of the tribe’s creation story.”
11/7/10 Fox News: “he said, without elaborating, that the election “requires me to make some midcourse corrections and adjustments.” How those will play out over the next several months, Obama said, will depend on his talks with Republicans. His comments seemed to reflect a deeper acknowledgment of the need for change by the White House, but as he did at a news conference the day after the election, Obama stayed purposely vague…”
11/7/10 The India Times remembers this Obama broken promise: “Obama’s predecessor, whose worldview was conditioned by a Biblical sense of Good and Evil, recognised India as special. The Indo-US nuclear pact was the strategic culmination of his ideological investment, built on the foundation laid by the Jaswant Singh-Strobe Talbott talks. That relationship has stagnated under Obama. Even during his campaign, Obama sent danger signals to New Delhi. He said in an interview to Time’s Joe Klein that “working with Pakistan and India” to resolve the Kashmir crisis “in a serious way” would be one of the “critical tasks for the next administration”. He then suggested the appointment of a special envoy for the task in Kashmir which he described as a “diplomatic tar pit”. Thankfully, President Obama didn’t follow up what Candidate Obama had said.”
11/7/10 The India Times calls President Obama “Two-Faced” today, pointing to his attempt to play both sides of issues between India and Pakistan: “President Barack Obama, battered at home, badly needs a break. The festive lights, however, might only expose a dubious policy as he winks at his wartime ally, Pakistan, with one face and smiles at his peacetime friend, India, with another. The text of his Delhi visit can be read only in the context of the Obama presidency’s biggest foreign policy challenge: Pakistan and Afghanistan. Obama prepared for Delhi by giving Pakistan $2 billion, which means a fresh warehouse of arms…”
11/7/10 YubaNet points out this broken promise: “President Obama travels today to India for the first time since his election, arriving on November 6. His trip will feature high-level meetings organized by powerful U.S. and European corporate interests, including an address to the U.S.-India Business Council, a corporate interest group hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that includes all major multinational pharmaceutical companies among its members. U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce Suresh Kumar confirmed last week on the sidelines of a business conference that securing more restrictive intellectual property rights for U.S. companies was a key U.S. demand. He said, “[the US is] lobbying to do here, to protect international property rights, to protect our patents.” Civil society organizations in the U.S. and India are gravely concerned that President Obama is seeking policies that will undermine access to affordable Indian generics. Low cost, generic versions of AIDS medicines made by Indian manufacturers represent approximately 80% of medicine purchases by the US and other donors—creating hundreds of millions of dollars in cost savings that would ensure more people can obtain life saving treatment. “As a candidate, Obama made a promise in writing to defend the right of countries to prioritize public health and access to medicines, above the commercial interests of pharmaceutical companies,” said Asia Russell of Health GAP. “He is breaking that promise. As a result, India’s ability to make low cost, generic versions of newer medicines is under threat, and U.S.-funded AIDS treatment programs will be forced to waste money procuring more costly medicines. Obama should reconsider this wrongheaded position.”
11/7/10 Fox & Friends has the funny story today: While Michelle Obama is out saying cut back on Cheese, cheeseburgers (which she sneaks into the White House from 5 Guys Burgers and Fries), and even Macaroni and Cheese, guess who is fighting her? Yep, President Obama! Her Husband! Seems the Prez is spending $136-million through the USDA to encourage restaurants and food producers to ADD MORE CHEESE!! Trouble in the White House?!
11/7/10 From Give Us Liberty: “Obama also reflected on the limits of his own success. He said he tries to follow the examples of the Rev. Martin Luther King and Mohandas K. Gandhi, particularly in making decisions that uphold the rights and dignity of people everywhere.” — ConservativeAmerican.org notes Obama is no MLK Jr., and certainly is not Gandhi! If he was so interested in the rights and dignity of people why does he trample the US Constitution (which he called a Flawed document) appointing czars and stealing GM from the rightful shareholders (people with rights and dignity) and then giving it away to his own political party, the UAW!
11/8/10 James Rucker of the ColorOfChange.org writes, “In the arena of criminal-justice reform, for example, the Obama White House and Democrats failed to deliver (or even try to deliver) on much of what they promised to do to alleviate the disproportionate imprisonment of people of color… When the time came to reform the 100-to-1 disparity in sentencing between crack- and powder-cocaine offenses, Congress reduced but didn’t eliminate it, leaving a racist disparity in place. Despite having previously voiced support for fully eliminating the disparity, neither Congress nor the White House fought for its full elimination…”
11/8/10 James Rucker notes at the H.R. Huff-n-Stuffington Post, ‘When running for president, Barack Obama promised to institute a ban on racial profiling by federal law-enforcement agencies. Congress and the White House have failed to make this legislation a priority and pass it.”
11/8/10 James Rucker notes at the H.R. Huff-n-Stuffington Post, “Candidate Obama promised to encourage videotaping of interrogations in capital cases but has taken no action on that front.”
11/8/10 James Rucker notes at the H.R. Huff-n-Stuffington Post, “Obama promised to start a prison-to-work incentive program to help former inmates restart their lives and avoid ending up back in prison — but the president hasn’t taken action on that front.” –ConservativeAmerican.org notes that while Rucker’s goals and intentions are worthy, he continues the failed permanent democrat playbook method of simply blaming the republicans for all of this. Do the math, the republicans were not able to accomplish anything in the last congress. It was the democrats who ran everything. Absolutely anything they wanted to pass, could have been passed, including the four items listed here from Rucker. Rucker should drop the tired and lame methodology of blaming republicans and sticking with democrats.
11/9/10 Gerri Willis at the Fox Business Network reports in a story entitled, “Socialism: Rearing its Ugly Head Again,” a new energy plan could lead us in that direction: “Get to know this acronym: FERC–the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. According to the paper, the commission has a plan to spread out the costs for the transmission lines to bring wind and solar projects to the national grid. A price tag that is likely to top $160 billion! Residents in states such as California, Oregon, New York and Michigan will have to pay billions of dollars more in utility bills and they won’t ever see such lines! …This is beyond maddening.”
11/9/10 Nature.com says Team Obama skipped the rules in hiring. “The document released by the IG [Inspector General] redacts the names of the officials involved, but it does name the company, New West-Energetics, a joint venture between New West Technologies of Landover, Maryland, and Energetics Incorporated of Columbia, Maryland, that has received $1.9 million in funding under the 2008 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The released document also names the EERE office involved. It was the Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program,… Emails by an official in the weatherization program suggest that person knowingly sought to bypass regular hiring procedure, initially by trying to hire an individual from New West Technologies into an adjunct advisory position with the intent to later make them a permanent federal employee. Although initial attempts to hire in this way weren’t successful, the same person was then approached about advertized positions, with the decision in one case being made even before a short-list of candidates had been drawn up. …The IG found the behavior violated a number of laws intended to promote fair competition for federal jobs and to prevent revolving door and other corrupt hiring arrangements. It has referred the recruiting officials involved for possible prosecution…”
11/9/10 Continuing his “Hug-an-Islamist” world tour, Obama took time in the Muslim nation of Indonesia today to blast Israel. Big surprise. While supporting, and even using US Taxpayer money to help with, new Palestinian settlements, Obama continues to tell the Israelis shame on them for building homes in their own territory!! He spits on an ally in support of a terrorist-sponsoring nation. This is foolish foreign policy. From CNN: “President Barack Obama’s disappointment over Israel’s plans for new housing in east Jerusalem has drawn criticism from the prime minister’s office and the country’s settler council… “But this kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations. And I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort involved to get a breakthrough that could finally create a framework for a secure Israel living side and side in peace with a sovereign Palestine,” he said… Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said Jerusalem “is not a settlement.” The city, it said, is the “capital of the state of Israel.”
11/10/10 Michelle Obama figuratively bowed down to her Muslim hosts in Indonesia yesterday by wearing a Muslim headscarf. The London Daily Mail uses this photo to gush over the First Lady: “Her impeccable dress sense has been praised throughout the world. So it was no surprise that Michelle Obama managed to be stylish and show respect to her Muslim hosts when she visited a mosque on her tour of Indonesia. The First Lady covered her hair with a beige animal-print scarf as she toured Jakarta’s Istiqlal Mosque, the largest in southeast Asia.” — ConservativeAmerican.org excuses itself to go throw up after that liberal love-fest from the Daily Mail. Queen Michelle is constantly praised for her dress and ‘beauty.’ I’ve even seen her compared to Jacqueline Kennedy! No ever dares to talk about her wide hips and “do-what-I-say-not-what-I-do” nonsense over healthy eating and against things like cheese. Michelle Obama is no Jacqueline Kennedy.
11/10/10 From the Examiner: “In an abject display of blatant contradiction, the Obama Administration today called for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, although it insists on spending a trillion bucks for ObamaCare. The proposal, released today by the Obama debt panel, also called for raising the retirement age and eliminating the mortgage interest deduction from the income tax. The announcement is indicative of the fact that Obama appointees recognize the dire nature of the national debt, which has created a rift with China and European countries that have funded our debt. As a means of providing political cover for making controversial proposals that may be unpopular, Obama appointed both Republicans and Democrats to the panel, although it is to be noted that the Republicans on the committee are RINOS and not conservatives.”
11/12/10 As noted in the Personal Liberty Digest: “To absolutely no one’s surprise, an inspector general concluded that the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the administration’s six-month ban on new deep-water drilling. The Associated Press reported that the inspector general concluded the White House’s changes “resulted ‘in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.’ But it hadn’t been. Outside scientists were asked only to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.” In other words, the Administration lied…”
11/12/10 From the Atlantic NewsWire: “Here’s where the real pay dirt is. In the last five years, the number of federal employees making $150,000 or more per year increased tenfold, according to an investigation by USA Today. Those high wages increased by twofold under the Obama administration. “The biggest pay hikes have gone to employees who have been with the government for 15 to 24 years…” –ConservativeAmerican.org believes this huge increase in taxpayer funded salaries during a time when unemployment is so high, people are taking pay cuts and we’re in a recession is a scandal.
11/12/10 From McClatchy News: “The Obama administration has decided to begin publicly walking away from what it once touted as key deadlines in the war in Afghanistan in an effort to de-emphasize President Barack Obama’s pledge that he’d begin withdrawing U.S. forces in July 2011, administration and military officials have told McClatchy…”
11/12/10 Even the liberal so-called “Politifact” website says Obama didn’t tell the truth on 60 Minutes: “(OBAMA:)”One of the interesting things about the Recovery Act was most of the projects came in under budget, faster than expected, because there’s just not a lot of work there.” Barack Obama on Sunday, November 7th, 2010 in a “60 Minutes” interview – Under budget? So there is some truth to Obama’s point. But without definitive data telling us what percentage of all stimulus projects have come in under budget, we think it’s a stretch for Obama to claim that most stimulus projects have come in under budget. After all, that’s based on a survey of just eight agencies that found “contract bids, in some cases” were coming in well below budget. Faster than expected? – Obama would have been on firm ground had he said “many” projects have come in faster than expected. Many have. But many have not. And if the claim is based on meeting a deadline to outlay funds, the overall target of 70 percent was reached — barely — by the end of September. That’s only faster than expected if you expected the government to fail…”
11/12/10 Fox News has the story on the latest theft of taxpayer money to be used to help democrat politicians: “”Subsidizing Sanctuaries: The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program,” a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, found that the federal grant program commonly known as SCAAP allocated $62.2 million — more than 15 percent of its $400 million total — to 27 jurisdictions that are widely considered to be “sanctuary communities.” Some of those jurisdictions — including San Francisco, Chicago and California’s Santa Clara County — are even trying to opt-out of Secure Communities, a program that automatically alerts Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials when criminal illegal immigrants are booked into jail, according to the report.” — ConservativeAmerican.org asks the logical question; what is San Francisco and Chicago doing with that money? Hmmm? They should be forced to give it back!
11/15/10 Salon.com says first Obama claimed to be honest, “I might have a funny name, I might have lived in some different places, but the values of hard work and responsibility and honesty and looking out for one another that had been instilled in them by their parents, those were the same values that I took from my mom and my grandparents.” And within one minute tells a lie: “Those letters that I read every night, some of them just break my heart. Some of them provide me encouragement and inspiration. But nobody is filming me reading those letters.” Visit Salon.com for the proof.
11/20/10 President Obama told a great big fib the other day when he claimed GM is “profitable!” From the Nutmeg State Conservative: “Remember that Barack Hussein Obama has unconstitutionally taken over General Motors and Chrysler, screwed the investors and share holders, and enriched his slime union hacks as pay back for their support. Now he tells us yesterday that GM is again profitable and has paid back their loans. An utter lie!…” And from Reuters: “General Motors Co may have the world’s biggest initial public offering, but U.S. taxpayers were more than $9 billion underwater on the government-funded restructuring at its current share price on Thursday…” – ConservativeAmerican.org: That’s hardly “profitable!” Still, Obama rushed to the microphone to tout this as a success!
11/20/10 Alek Jones says Homeland Security Chieftess Janet Napolitano told the USA Today that those naked body scanners at airports are “safe” and she quoted John Hopkins University as her source. Yet What John Hopkins really said, according to a French News Agency, is that the risk is minimal but “statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays.”
11/20/10 Alek Jones says this is a lie as well…
Jones says grabbing someone’s genitals out in the open in front of everyone is hardly discreet!
11/20/10 Obama’s Napolitano says the new groping is no big deal because “We’ve always done pat downs.” As Alek Jones points out, the process of touching the groin, the crotch and the breasts most certainly is brand new and has not been done before.
11/20/10 Napolitano says the new system is “risk-based!” If that’s true, then why are the primary targets children, women and white-haired old ladies? The risk comes from radical, extremist, Muslims. Risk-based my rear.
11/20/10 Janet Napolitano actually claims the “vast majority” of fliers like the new scanners. Hmmm. A Reuters poll found that 95% of Americans are LESS LIKELY TO FLY because of these scanners! First the great Barack-Meister killed the corporate jet, now he wants to kill all airplanes (except his own, of course).
11/20/10 Alek Jones says this one is the worst lie of all. Napolitano claims the machines cannot save images AND that images are not being stored. Hmmm. Privacy Inc. reported in August that the Feds admitted storing checkpoint body scan images. No one believes that TSA workers won’t pick out the hot babes and come up with a system to save their naked body images.
11/20/10 Oh, and the wise little comment that the machines cannot even save images is a lie too. Alek Jones reports that the manuals for the machines say the images can indeed be saved. Jones credits the Drudge Report with bringing these arrogant lies to the public’s attention.
11/20/2010 From Veterans Today: “Second Lady Jill Biden says the Vice-President and her NEVER hear from military families who say we [our government and American people] do not support them… This is a lie. In August, 2008, MFSO members Pat Alivso and others spoke with Jill Biden at the Democratic National Convention. They spoke about their work with Military Families Speak Out, their opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and their belief that the troops should be brought home and taken care of when they get here. Mrs. Biden said that she would do what she could…”
11/21/2010 From Americans for Tax Reform: “J. Dudley Butler, Administrator of the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyard Administration (GIPSA), is the latest in a string of Obama appointees to draw scandal to their posts. A former trial lawyer who made his living litigating against poultry processors, Mr. Butler is now in charge of altering the very regulations he wrestled in the private sector. The Obama administration has yet to address this serious conflict of interest. As a regulatory arm of the USDA, GIPSA is tasked with overseeing the trade of various meats, grains, and other agricultural products. As an attorney in the Butler Farm and Ranch Law Group in Canton, Mississippi, Mr. Butler filed multiple lawsuits against poultry companies for alleged irregular and illegal business practices. These suits met with limited success because of pre-existing GIPSA regulations. Now, having been made Administrator of GIPSA by President Obama, Mr. Butler is changing the troublesome regulations to favor plaintiff’s attorneys, whose ranks may well again include him after his stint in public office.”
11/23/10 Rush Limbaugh reported today that Director of Health and Abortion Services, Kathleen Sebelius, announced new federal rules today designed to limit the profit of private industry! Sebelius and Team Obama are using the power of an executive order to tell health insurance companies what percentage of their income can go to profits and what percentage must go to providing healthcare. Even the liberal New York Times called this a vast expansion of federal authority. It starts with insurance companies. Who’s next?
11/23/10 While liberals were quick to blast George W. Bush for wanting to monitor phone calls between U.S. Citizens and known terrorists overseas, and while they blasted him for wanting to check library records to see who is checking out bomb-making books and terrorist guides, they are silent as Obama’s Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is practicing “Gate-Rape!” As Thanksgiving travelers head to airports, there are cries of “Grope and Change” and “Don’t Touch My Junk!” The administration has gone WAY, WAY TOO FAR with this one. The idea of allowing the government to simply decide it has the authority to photograph and touch your genitals is the death of personal liberty in this nation. Americans must not stand for this and must not allow it to continue. If we allow it, there is nothing the government cannot do to us. All Americans, regardless of party, must stand up and demand that this practice cease. This is among the top 5 outrageous Obama Scandals of all time!
11/23/10 We only wish we were kidding. So not only will we not profile the radical Muslim extremists who want us all dead, Team Obama and Janet Napolitano may allow Muslim women to “Pat themselves down!” That’s the scoop from the Council of Conservative Citizens!
11/23/10 Just in case you needed a boost in your confidence in Team Obama, Fox News reports, “The top commander in Afghanistan suggested Tuesday that the United States suspected all along that a man leading peace talks on behalf of the Taliban was an impostor, even though the bogus militant was allegedly receiving payments from the West while he was duping them…” – ConservativeAmerican.org groans, uh-huh. Let’s go with that explanation. Yeah. We knew it all along. Uh-huh.
11/23/10 After saying on Saturday that the new nude body scans and groping pat downs were here to stay no matter what, Obama’s TSA leader said Sunday that he’ll work to make sure these procedures are as minimal as possible. TSA guy say what?! How can a gloved TSA worker placing their hand between a woman’s body and her panties be “minimal?” This disgusting and perverted measure, supposedly in place to keep us safe, is actually happening to make sure we don’t do that awful, terrible thing called “profiling!” Why the heck not profile? We’re trying to prevent the bad guys from killing us here. We sure as heck should profile our enemies and stop harassing innocent men, women and children! So what’s it going to be? Does President Obama get away with this continued sexual assault of the American people? Or do we put a stop to it?
11/28/10 Just coming out are details leaked from thousands of pages of documents in Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Did Clinton allow the leaks to make Obama look bad? Fox reports one of the stories is that Obama and Hillary were unable to convince Syria to stop shipping weapons to the terrorist group Hezbollah.
11/28/10 Another story developing from the WikiLeaks illegal distribution of Hillary’s State Department documents: Team Obama has failed to get Qatar to stop funding terrorist activities.
11/28/10 A third Team Obama blunder leaked by the anti-U.S. WikiLeaks website is the failure to prevent China from hacking into U.S. Government computers. The Obama administration needs to do everything it canto find the source of this leak. That includes questioning everyone at the State Department who had access up to and including Hillary Rodham Clinton herself. The Pentagon-controlled internet also needs to continue its efforts to shut down WikiLeaks. Like Obama or not, it’s wrong for an anti-U.S. group to leak such crucial documents and information.
11/28/10 The President of the United States Lied to ABCDEmocrat News’s Baba Wawa the other day about presumed 2012 Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Fancast reports it went down like this: “Barbara Walters: You will not tell me that you think you could beat Sarah Palin? President Obama: What I’m saying is, I don’t think about Sarah Palin.” If that is true, and it’s not, he’d be an absolute fool. He is already dismissing people from his team specifically so they can start working on his 2012 reelection. To pretend he doesn’t know, doesn’t care, doesn’t even think about, his political opponents is nothing short of a lie.
11/30/2010 Fox News reports: “The Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery is under fire for hosting an exhibit that is filled with homoerotic art, an image of Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts and a video of Jesus on a crucifix covered in ants, outraging conservative leaders and prompting some Republican lawmakers to call for a congressional investigation. “Absolutely we should look at their funds,” Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, told Fox News. “If they’ve got money to squander like this – of a crucifix being eaten by ants, of Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts, men in chains, naked brothers kissing – then I think we should look at their budget.” The video, “A Fire in My Belly,” is included in the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibit titled, “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” which is scheduled to run through the Christmas season.” – ConservativeAmerican.org notes this is just the latest effort by the ultra-liberal left to piss off Christians at Christmas time. They do it every year. And, they use our money, our taxpayer dollars, to do it. The U.S. Government is absolutely out of control.
11/30/2010 As Sarah Palin notes, “The White House has now issued orders to federal departments and agencies asking them to take immediate steps to ensure that no more leaks like this happen again. It’s of course important that we do all we can to prevent similar massive document leaks in the future. But why did the White House not publish these orders after the first leak back in July? What explains this strange lack of urgency on their part?” – ConservativeAmerican.org notes the difference this time, at least through the eyes of Team Obama, is that this leak makes them look bad.
11/30/2010 Harry Reider and the Half-Black Prince have convinced the Slytherin Democrats in the U.S. Senate to take a pass on the magical tea partyish idea of banning pork and eliminating earmarks! Foxy Blondes News reports: “The 39-56 [vote] tally, however, was a better showing for earmark opponents, who lost a 29-68 vote earlier this year. Any votes next year should be closer because a band of anti-earmark Republicans is joining the Senate. Earlier this month, Republicans bowed to tea party activists and passed a party resolution declaring GOP senators would give up earmarks. House Republicans have also given up the practice, but most Democrats say earmarks are a legitimate way to direct taxpayer money to their constituents.” –ConservativeAmerican.org wonders what’s up with the “Bowed to tea party” line? They dang well better listen to American voters! Even the Foxy Blondes news network calls that “bowing” down to the Tea Party? Interesting.
11/30/2010 Even the H.R. Huff-n-Stuffington Post discusses this broken Obama promise: “The Obama administration will spend less than a quarter of the $50 billion it promised to help homeowners facing foreclosure, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said in a report Monday. The CBO projection raises fresh questions about the success of the administration’s foreclosure-prevention efforts and its commitment to helping homeowners, even as unemployment hovers near 10 percent…” – The website Flesh and Stone reports it this way, “The Obama administration spent just $710 million of the $50 billion promised two years ago to help U.S. homeowners caught in the real estate bubble. The Federal Reserve reimbursed foreign banks $600 billion for the lousy Wall Street mortgage-backed securities. It’s taken two years to learn where the $3.3 trillion in emergency bailouts went…”
11/30/2010 As “The Liberal Lie, The Conservative Truth” explains; “…to his claim that he is freezing federal salaries for two years. Civilian federal employees have several different classification with as many additional classifications in each ranking that enable an employee to rise in both position and salary during their employment with the government. Federal employees also have several built in salary increases to compensate them for inflation etc. Each year they automatically receive two such raises. One built in as a yearly raise to compensate them for their time as a federal employee and the second to compensate them for inflationary increases so that the salary they receive in comparable to any inflationary increases in the cost of living. The, “freeze,” Obama announced does not end the automatic percentage raise every federal employee receives each year. The inflationary, cost of living increase is the ONLY increase that will be frozen at current levels. All federal employees will still receive their annual raise even during this so called freeze. Their salaries will just not be adjusted in accordance to inflation for two years as has been the case in the past. So this sacrifice that Obama is claiming he is forcing on federal employees is nothing more than his usual smoke and mirrors, full of deception in order to try and convince the American people he actually is interested in deficit reduction…” – More here from the P/O’d Patriot.
11/30/2010 President Barack Hussein Obama said his economic policies would add 4-million new jobs to the economy with 90% coming in the private sector. While he has added jobs to the government payroll, the private sector has lost more than 2-million jobs since The Obamanator took command. Do the math… let’s see, carry the one, plus… okay… Obama is SIX MILLION+ JOBS BEHIND!! As Right Side News reported, “…Even before he was president, on Jan. 10, 2009, Obama made his claim that 3 to 4 million jobs would be saved or created by his economic policies. The bulk of those jobs were supposed to come from the private sector. “Ninety percent of these jobs will be created in the private sector,” Obama continued. “The remaining 10 percent are mainly public sector jobs we save, like the teachers, police officers, firefighters, and others who provide vital services in our communities.”
12/02/2010 The Washington Times: “Virginia has become the latest victim of the Obama administration’s war against the domestic drilling industry. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced yesterday that waters off Virginia and in the eastern Gulf of Mexico will remain closed to drilling through 2017 despite the commonwealth’s strong desire for oil and gas production. The moratorium will cost the Old Dominion jobs and tax revenue while further undermining America’s domestic energy industry.” – As the Lake County (IL) News put it, “The Obama administration is reversing its March decision to open up the eastern Gulf and certain Atlantic and Pacific offshore areas to oil drilling. This means, of course, fewer jobs and more reliance on foreign oil. This is good news for Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and the Chinese oil company currently drilling in the eastern Gulf. Bad news for Americans…”
12/02/2010 The liberal Huffington Post reports, “This morning, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski announced that he will finally seek a vote on President Obama’s top tech issue, “Net Neutrality.” There’s just one problem: According to the New York Times, it’s not even close to the real Net Neutrality that President Obama promised the American people. The Times report, based on interviews with the Chairman’s office and a speech he gave today, indicates that the proposed rule is riddled with loopholes and falls far short of what’s necessary to prevent phone and cable companies from turning the Internet into something that looks like cable TV, where they decide what moves fast, what moves slow, and whether they can price gouge you or not…”
12/04/2010 Nile Gardiner at the U.K. Telegraph says the left would have “bayed for Bush’s blood if he was in the White House.” So why no pressure on Obama?
“It has undoubtedly been a hugely embarrassing few days on the world stage, not only for the Obama administration, but also for America. The United States’ position as a superpower and the trust of important allies has been undermined by unscrupulous, America-hating figures with the aid and comfort of several major newspapers including The New York Times, Le Monde and The Guardian. However the WikiLeaks scandal to date has not resulted in demonstrable consequences for the Obama presidency or for the president himself. This despite the fact the Obama administration appears to have done little to halt the latest leak, even though this is the third unlawful disclosure of government documents this year. The Obama team has been spectacularly caught napping by America’s enemies like a deer in the headlights…” — ConservativeAmerican.org remembers the great Obamanator promising to improve our foreign relations! He was supposed to do so much better than George W. Bush and all the other countries would just love us! Instead, North Korea and Iran think we’re nothing but a joke and the United Kingdom calls this hugely embarrassing! UPDATE 12/10/10: News with Views says, “OBAMA’S COMPLACENCY ON WIKILEAKS REVELATIONS IS THE REAL SCANDAL”
12/05/2010 From Greta Van Susteren: “…the Justice Department hid a report (ok, they don’t call it hiding but I do… and why?) The way it is worded below is that the report was not released…so as not to embarrass the President of Mexico. Not released? Or hiding and covering up? I don’t get why we are in the business of not embarrassing someone when it is a war (people are dying in Mexico and in USA) and it is on our border. Politically correct? I don’t know…but we need to face this problem head on. We should not hide this stuff – but face it and deal with it. We still don’t know what is in the report. Why can’t we know?…”
12/05/2010 From the Billings Gazette: “…Obama wrote… “Sitting Bull was a medicine man who healed broken hearts and broken promises. It is fine that we are different. The Lakota chief spoke out and led his people against many policies of the United States government. He is most famous for his stunning victory in 1876 over Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer in the Battle of the Little Bighorn.” His reference to Sitting Bull, as being justified in his methods of fighting injustices against his people is revisionist history about what happened…General Alfred Terry eventually chased Sitting Bull and his band of Indians up into Saskatchewan, Canada… His followers starved …and he voluntarily returned to the United States to live on the Standing Rock Indian reservation. Sitting Bull was eventually killed in a standoff with police officers at the Standing Rock Agency in South Dakota on Dec. 15, 1890. To make Sitting Bull out to be someone who healed broken hearts and broken promises is oversimplifying what really happened…”
12/05/2010 From the Democrat Party’s own Associated Press: “…”Like the Bush administration, the Obama administration is failing to provide prompt protection to wildlife desperately in need of protection,” including the plains bison, sage grouse and hundreds of other species, said Noah Greenwald, endangered species program director at the Center for Biological Diversity, an Arizona-based group that has filed lawsuits seeking greater protection for those and other species. Greenwald said Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has failed to correct a longtime “culture of delay and foot-dragging” at the Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees the endangered species program…”
12/05/2010 So much for the so-called “economic” stimulus! The only thing stimulated was the deficit. Obama could have done more good for the economy by simply dividing the money from the stimulus among every American! That would have stimulated the economy. Too bad we had to print more fake money to pay for the stimulus! Now, unemployment is nearly 2% higher than the Obama-promised high of 8% with the stimulus!!! As The Liberal Lie website put it, “During a season that traditionally sees even hard employment times improve because of Christmas seasonal hiring, the disastrous economy that has progressively become worse because of failed and in many cases dangerous economical policy put in place by Obama, unemployment actually rose to 9.8% as Obama keeps telling everyone that his policy saved the country from a financial collapse and the economy is improving.”
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.
