Official Obama Scandals & Lies List

By Peter Andrew – ConservativeAmerican.org

“Someday, books will be written and classes taught showing ObamaCare as a cautionary tale on the hubris of one-party rule. But for now, we endure lectures about civility and compromise from its namesake, a man who practices neither.”

Michael Goodwin, New York Post/Fox News

Obama's Plan to Fix the Economy

The list below contains all of the Obama Administration mistakes, blunders, broken promises, flip flops, gaffes, lies, etc. That’s too long of a name, so we called it “the Official Obama Administration Scandals List.” This list covers Barack Obama and his pals from day one through September 4th, 2011. At that point, the list was discontinued. We present this list to you as an accurate and complete historic detail of the Legacy of Lies President Obama leaves behind for the time period starting with his youth and going until September 4th, 2011. Not responsible for any broken or out-of-date links.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 about when Troops will Leave Afghanistan! 12/3/9 From Riehl World View,
    Obama Troops might leave! VIDEO MAY NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE
  2. Obama Troops might leave!“Did Obama Lie To McCain, Or CBS? From a new item up at CBS: ‘After the briefing, Gibbs went to the president for clarification. Gibbs then called me to his office to relate what the president said. The president told him it IS locked in – there is no flexibility. Troops WILL start coming home in July 2011. Period. It’s etched in stone. Gibbs said he even had the chisel.’ Back to an item I posted earlier via CongressDaily. McCain was challenging Obama on the very same point. ‘These sources said the president responded to McCain by promising that the withdrawal would be based on conditions on the ground.’ Talk about trying to please eveyone while having it both ways.” It’s what we at ConservativeAmerican.org call the Obama Pattern! UPDATE 12/5/9: From the “progressive’ The Young Turks…
  3. Obama Relies on Debunked Science and Ignores Pleas not to attend Climate Hoax Conference 12/5/9 Fox News: “Sarah Palin is the most prominent figure to call on Obama to boycott the conference in Copenhagen in the wake of the e-mails’ release…”I think there’s no real scientific basis for the dispute of (global warming),” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said this week. And Obama’s top science adviser, John Holdren, downplayed the e-mails Friday, telling Congress that the controversy involves a small group of scientists (ConservativeAmerican.org notes: Including Holdren! See Scandal dated 11/24/9 above) and how they have interpreted and shared global warming data…Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Commmittee, on Friday joined Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., in calling on the Obama administration and Congress to investigate the Climate-gate e-mails. “The very integrity of the report that the Obama administration has predicated much of its climate change policy upon has been called into question and it is unconscionable that this administration and Congress is willing to abdicate responsibility of uncovering the truth to the United Nations,” the California Republican said in a written statement.” UPDATE 12/9/9: Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner calls the climate Hoax “Scientific Fascism!
  4. Obama’s “Obvious and Unexplained Double Standard” 12/5/9 Even extreme lefties like The Total Collapse say Obama contradicted himself in his West Point talk: “Obama even suggested that Al Qaeda enjoys the protection of sections of the Pakistani state, declaring, “[T]here have been those in Pakistan who have argued that the struggle against extremism is not their fight, and that Pakistan is better off doing little, or seeking accommodation with those who use violence.” This account raises an obvious and unexplained double standard. If the security of the American people required the US to invade Afghanistan and remove an Al Qaeda-friendly regime there, why shouldn’t the same apply to the government of Pakistan?” The left is fuming. Liberal site, the Rebel, says it’s just Obama and “the same old Bush Lies, for the same old reasons.”
  5. Obama’s Broken “Dwell Time” Promise to the Army! 12/5/9 Global Security reports, “One such problem is the Pentagon’s promise to soldiers that the Army would be moving to 2-for-1 Dwell Time — that is, each soldier would get twice the time at home as deployed. That move, announced in the first week of the Obama administration by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, was aimed at combating record-high rates of suicide, divorce, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Indeed, an Army report found that the length and frequency of deployments was linked to a 20.2-per-100,000 suicide rate – the highest rate since the Army started tracking it 28 years ago…Now, the Army’s plan to increase Dwell Time has been tossed out the window, a promise broken. In front of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, Admiral Mike Mullen admitted that the plan to increase Dwell Time would have to be shelved for the foreseeable future, because of the deployment schedule for Afghanistan.”
  6. Obama’s Quick Flip Flop on Leaving Afghanistan! – The “Etched in Stone” Lie! 12/6/9 Just three days ago we told you that Robert Gibbs went to the president for clarification on his West Point remarks about leaving Afghanistan in July of 2011. Gibbs said the president told him it IS locked in – there is no flexibility. Troops WILL start coming home in July 2011. Period. It’s etched in stone. Gibbs said he even had the chisel.’ – Politics Daily reports today, “Top Obama administration officials and its military advisers today again tried to dampen criticism of the public timetable President Obama described this week for beginning to draw down U.S. troops in Afghanistan, saying variously the 2011 target date “is not a cliff, it’s a ramp” and it does not amount to triggering “a rush to the exits” or a “drop dead deadline.”
  7. Obama’s Party Crasher Flip Flop! – Obama and the Pink Panters! 12/6/9 From Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King at Big Government: “President Barack Obama is “angry” about the infiltration of a State Dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by two intruders, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday. Yet little over a year ago in September 2008, candidate Obama placed his seal of approval on the actions of one of his top funders, Code Pink co-founder and terrorist supporter Jodie Evans, by meeting with her at a high profile Hollywood fundraiser just days after Jodie Evans attempted to storm the stage during Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech. Jodie Evans had committed identity theft that enabled her to sneak past security at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. After the incident, the mainstream media refused to report on.”
  8. Desiree Rogers was Planning a Non-religious “Christmas” for the Obama’s!!! 12/7/9 First of all, one can’t have a non-religious “Christmas!” Fox & Friends reported today that White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers told the social secretaries from previous administrations that the Obama’s were considering the non-religious ‘holiday’ celebration and were thinking of skipping the whole manger scene thing! Fox reports there was an audible gasp. The Obama’s eventually decided this was a bad move and set up the manger as has been the tradition.
  9. Team Obama Skipping Cap & Tax Legislation and Proceeding Anyway! 12/7/9 Phil Kerpen at Fox News: “President Obama, White House Climate Czar Carol Browner, and their Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not waiting for Congress to pass cap-and-trade. Shrugging off the Climate-gate scandal, today EPA administration Lisa Jackson issues a so-called “endangerment finding,” paving the way for onerous greenhouse gas regulations to be shoehorned into the 1970 Clean Air Act. Based on a legal theory originally conceived by Climate Czar Carol Browner in the late 1990s, Obama’s EPA is moving ahead with greenhouse gases regulations under the 1970 Clean Air Act even though in 1970 global warming hadn’t even been invented yet, and the doom-saying scientists were instead warning of an impending ice age!”
  10. Obama’s “Lie of the Day”– 12/7/9 – From Don Surber at Daily Mail: “(OBAMA:) I mentioned that I was in Asia on this trip thinking about the economy, when I sat down for a round of interviews. Not one of them asked me about Asia. Not one of them asked me about the economy. I was asked several times about had I read Sarah Palin’s book…it’s an indication of how our political debate doesn’t match up with what we need to do and where we need to go.” Michael Scherer of Time magazine corrected him: “Obama did not accurately characterize his interviews in Asia. Fox News’ Garrett asked both about the jobs bill Obama has proposed and the South Korean trade agreement. NBC’s Chuck Todd asked about the jobs summit and Chinese relations on human rights.”
  11. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 1 – Deficits are Bad 12/8/9 OBAMA: And Peter Orszag, my incoming Budget Director, closed out the proceedings with an entirely dismal report on the fiscal health of the country, with growing deficits and debt stretching to the horizon. FACTS: Barack Obama and Peter Orszag quadrupled the budget deficit in one year. When Orszag worked at the Brookings Institution (where Obama gave the speech today) he wrote that “deficits will gradually harm the future income of Americans. At worst, they could trigger a fiscal crisis which could accelerate and possibly exacerbate the damage.”
  12. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 2 – A Great Depression 12/8/9 OBAMA: The fear among economists across the political spectrum was that we were rapidly plummeting toward a second Great Depression. FACTS: That is not the case. The only “economist” on some political spectrum that used the D-word was Joe Biden! From ABC News (See Scandal # 758)News’ Karen Travers: “In recent weeks, Vice President Joe Biden has said that the U.S. economy has been in what he calls “a great recession” and has stressed that it is not a depression, echoing the general consensus of the nation’s economists. But today the vice president took some liberty with the economic terms to illustrate the continuing struggles of the unemployed in the United States. For the millions of Americans without a job, “it’s a depression,” Biden said. “My grandpop used to say — there was a suburb of Scranton called Minooka. He said, ‘When the guy in Minooka’s out of work, it’s an economic slowdown. When your brother- in-law’s out of work, it’s a recession. When you’re out of work, it’s a depression,’” Biden said. “Well, it’s a depression — it’s a depression for millions of Americans, through no fault of their own,” he said.
  13. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 3 – Republicans Caused this Mess 12/8/9 OBAMA: We were forced to take those steps largely without the help of an opposition party which, unfortunately, after having presided over the decision-making that led to the crisis, decided to hand it over to others to solve. FACTS: While republican George W. Bush was president, democrats like then U.S. Senator Barack Obama, were in charge of Congress and came up with the decision-making that led to this crisis. Obama ignores this fact in his description. There is plenty of blame to go around and it is foolish to suggest it is all the republicans fault.
  14. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 4 – We Got Lending Going! 12/8/9 OBAMA: We acted to get lending flowing again FACTS: Countless news stories have discussed how loans are not flowing again despite the Obama Stimulus plan. The president chooses his words carefully. They did take some action they said was an attempt to get lending flowing. He just ignores the fact it did not work!
  15. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 5 – We Had No Choice! 12/8/9 OBAMA: We were forced to extend assistance to some of the very banks and financial institutions whose actions had helped precipitate the turmoil. FACTS: No one was “forced” to do anything. The institutions could have been allowed to fail. Instead, the Obama administration helped out Wall Street…not main street as his campaign rhetoric suggested. His friends at Goldman Sachs appreciated the gesture. Many of them now work for Obama.
  16. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 6 – Deliberately Misleading the American People About Helping Small Businesses 12/8/9 OBAMA: Less than one month after taking office we enacted the most sweeping economic recovery package in history: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The Recovery Act was divided into three parts. One-third went for tax relief for small businesses and 95 percent of working families. FACTS: This is a deliberate attempt to mislead the American people. The president knowingly implies that one-third of the $787-Billion “went” for tax relief for small businesses. The liberal Huffington Post (see scandal dated 12/3/9 above) “The Obama Administration is claiming they have allocated $17.4 billion of the $785 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (AARA) to small businesses.” – Do the math, $17.4-billion is not even close to HALF of $787-Billion!
  17. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 7 – More Saved & Created Jobs Nonsense 12/8/9 OBAMA: We provided assistance that has saved the jobs of hundreds of thousands of teachers and public school workers, firefighters and police officers… the Recovery Act has created jobs and spurred growth FACTS: The president has claimed 600,000 jobs were created or saved, then he said 640,000 then 1-million and today 1.6-million. These jobs creations claims have been widely dismissed as nonsense. There is no way to count a saved job, and of those he said were created, many thousands were made up and never happened. Despite this coming to light, the President continues to use the fraudulent numbers. Rush Limbaugh said, “We have lost seven million-plus jobs. There are almost a million people, according to statistics, who have stopped looking for work. The real unemployment number in the country is about 15%. There is no way to calculate a “saved” job or even a “created” job in the recovery program, and the CBO also said that in the same report. “
  18. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 8 – We “Need” Wind Power 12/8/9 OBAMA: put Americans to work doing the work America needs done: doubling our capacity in renewable energy like wind and solar FACTS: All attempts to make wind and solar technology into efficient sources of power have failed to date. Nuclear power works now. Clean burning coal technology works now. Obama thinks nuclear energy is good enough for Iran, why not for us? American doesn’t “Need” work on wind and solar power right now. Research can be done by private industries.
  19. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 9 – Proposes Tax Cuts Without “Paying” For Them 12/8/9 OBAMA: we’re proposing a complete elimination of capital gains taxes on small business investment along with an extension of write-offs to encourage small businesses to expand in the coming year…(later) Folks passed tax cuts and expensive entitlement programs without paying for any of it – even as health care costs kept rising, year after year. FACTS: The President failed to explain how he will “pay for’ the tax cuts he proposes while criticizing others for doing the same. ConservativeAmerican.org notes it is nonsense to even suggest tax cuts need to be “paid for.” We have dealt with that topic numerous other times.
  20. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 10 – Only Government Can Solve These Problems 12/8/9 OBAMA: Of course, there is only so much government can do. Job creation will ultimately depend on the real job creators: businesses across America. FACTS: On January 8th, 2009 Obama said that both government and business will create the jobs, but “only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe,” Obama said. “Only government can break the vicious cycles that are crippling our economy — where a lack of spending leads to lost jobs which leads to even less spending; where an inability to lend and borrow stops growth and leads to even less credit.”
  21. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 11 – TARP was Flawed…Oh, uh, Did I Mention My Guy Wrote It?! 12/8/9 OBAMA: Launched hastily under the last administration, the TARP program was flawed, and we have worked hard to correct those flaws and manage it properly. And today, TARPRush Hudson Limbaugh (mmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm!)Rush Hudson Limbaugh (mmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm!)has served its original purpose and at a much lower cost than we expected. FACTS: From Rush Limbaugh today, “He dumped all over the Bush administration. TARP was flawed, his treasury secretary designed it! His tax cheat secretary designed it! It was flawed? My God, it is unbelievable what an immature little kid this guy is, bumping and blaming everything on prior administrations. I tell you, folks, it is breathtaking to watch this.”
  22. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 12 – Fiscal Responsibility 12/8/9 OBAMA: One of the central goals of this administration is restoring fiscal responsibility. FACTS: Where do we start? The largest federal budget ever, huge increases in the debt, a quadrupling of the federal deficit in less than one year! This is just a lie to say this is a central goal. If it is, he is a monumental failure! He has spent more money than all previous Presidents combined!
  23. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 13 – Audacity of Waxing Political!!! 12/8/9 OBAMA: One of the central goals of this administration is restoring fiscal responsibility. The deficit had been building dramatically over the previous eight years. Folks passed tax cuts and expansive entitlement programs without paying for any of it, even as health care costs kept rising year after year. These budget-busting tax cuts and spending programs were approved by many of the same people who are now waxing political about fiscal responsibility while opposing our efforts to reduce deficits by getting health care costs under control. It’s a sight to see. FACTS: First he waxes political about fiscal responsibility. Then he tries to tell you about Bush doubling the deficit in 8 years but completely ignores the fact he took that Bush deficit and quadrupled it in just a few months!! “Spending programs were approved by many of the same people who are now waxing political about fiscal responsibility.” Is he looking in a freaking mirror or something?!! HE approved these spending programs as a Senator! HE voted for them. HE is now “waxing political!” Give us a ‘Rev. Jeremiah Wright shouldn’t have said that’ Break! The audacity of this man is out of control!….Wait, what’s that smell? Oh…nevermind. Just my blood boiling!
  24. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 14 – Expanding Economy?! 12/8/9 OBAMA: Our economy is growing for the first time in a year, and the swing from contraction to expansion since the beginning of the year is the largest in nearly three decades. FACTS: The number of people unemployed has improved a bit. However, this only means the loss of jobs has slowed. We still have losses every week. There is no expansion. We are still contracting, not expanding.
  25. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 15 – Taxpayers “Reap Billions in PROFIT?!” 12/8/9 OBAMA: And the assistance to banks, once thought to cost the taxpayers untold billions, is on track to actually reap billions in profit for the taxpaying public. This gives us a chance to pay down the deficit faster than we thought possible and to shift funds that would have gone to help the banks on Wall Street to help create jobs on Main Street. FACTS: It’s obvious, I know, but it’s not a “profit” if he simply shifts funds to other new spending. That would just mean the government made a bit more than it thought it would but went and spent it all, leaving NO GAIN, no profit at all! Isn’t this a lie? UPDATE 12/31/9: Tom White at Virginia Right makes an excellent observation: “First, we borrowed the money to “bail out” these companies. And when the companies paid it back with interest at the same low rate the government paid to borrow the money, just how did we make money? On top of that, Obama is still holding that money AND the repaid interest and looking for ways to spend it – all the while paying MORE interest. No. I believe we would have only just broken even if the paid off loans were in turn used to pay off our debt. By holding on to the money, we are taking a financial bath.
  26. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 16 – Admits He Wants to Kill Free Market Capitalism! 12/8/9 OBAMA: We cannot simply go back to the way things used to be. We can’t go back to an economy that yielded cycle after cycle of speculative booms and painful busts. FACTS: As explained by Rush Limbaugh, “So that’s the official proclamation that capitalism is finished in this country. We’re going to end capitalism. We’re going to have no more risk-taking; we’re not going to have any up and down cycles; we’re going to have a straight line of mediocrity!”
  27. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 17 – We Stemmed the Tide of Foreclosures 12/8/9 OBAMA: We enacted measures to stem the tide of foreclosures in our housing market, helping responsible homeowners stay in their homes. FACTS: RealtyTrac reports, “Default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions — were reported on 937,840 properties in the third quarter, a 5 percent increase from the previous quarter and an increase of nearly 23 percent from Q3 2008. One in every 136 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the quarter — the highest quarterly foreclosure rate since RealtyTrac began issuing its report in the first quarter of 2005.” The President also said home values are improving. While that was actually true, the national home values remain below 2008 levels.
  28. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 18 – He Saved the Auto Industry! 12/8/9 OBAMA: We also took steps to prevent the rapid dissolution of the American auto industry, which faced a crisis partly of its own making, to prevent the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs during an already fragile time. These were not decisions that were popular or satisfying; these were decisions that were necessary. FACTS: This one is up for debate. The key word seems to be “dissolution” and it would depend who you ask. Dissolution can mean separation. You could argue that Fiat’s involvement meant separation did take place. Dissolution can also mean to dissolve, fall apart or disintegrate. Union workers still employed would likely say that is true. GM and Chrysler continue to make cars. However, Obama took unprecedented (you know he loves that word) steps, without any legal authority to do so, to render contracts null and void between the car makers and the people who financed them. Instead, he followed President Bush’s steps into socialism and simply took over the car companies. He then demanded the authority to fire the GM CEO and gave away huge stakes in ownership of the two companies to the auto workers union! You and I, through our tax dollars, paid for these companies with bailouts. As “owners” of the government and these companies, why did our CEO (Barack Obama) simply give away this asset to his democrat-voting union pals?
  29. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 19 – He Helped Companies Compete?! 12/8/9 OBAMA: In addition, we are working to break down barriers and open overseas markets so our companies can better compete globally, creating jobs in America by exporting our products around the world. FACTS: From the Scandals List # 653: “Obama Uses Tax Dollars to Bailout Captain Morgan Rum! 9/7/9 AND, the bailout hurts Puerto Rico, a U.S. Territory! The LA Times: “The U.S. taxpayer is basically being asked to line the pockets of the world’s largest liquor producer,” says Steve Ellis, the vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a nonpartisan watchdog organization…With little fanfare, a deal is moving forward to direct billions in U.S. tax dollars to an unlikely beneficiary — the giant British liquor producer that makes Captain Morgan rum. Under the agreement, London-based Diageo PLC will receive tax credits and other benefits worth $2.7 billion over 30 years, including the entire $165-million cost of building a state-of-the-art distillery on the island of St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, a U.S. territory. Virgin Islands officials say the arrangement complies with the letter and spirit of tax law and will help the islands’ sagging economy. Captain Morgan is now produced in another U.S. territory, Puerto Rico, and critics say the Virgin Islands’ subsidy for the new distillery there, along with the other benefits, are so generous that they practically guarantees a profit on every gallon of rum produced there by Diageo, the biggest distilled spirits maker in the world.” — And from the Scandals List # 599 “Hypocrite-in-Chief Obama Finances Offshore Drilling…in BRAZIL!!! 8/18/9 – Wall Street Journal: “The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field…near Rio de Janeiro…White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan. The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount…this corporate foreign aid may strike some readers as odd, given that the U.S. Treasury seems desperate for cash and Petrobras is one of the largest corporations in the Americas. But look on the bright side. If President Obama has embraced offshore drilling in Brazil, why not in the old U.S.A.? The land of the sorta free and the home of the heavily indebted has enormous offshore oil deposits.” — He may have helped companies compete, but they weren’t U.S. companies!
  30. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 20 – Tax Break for New Hires (AGAIN) 12/8/9 OBAMA: And I believe it’s worthwhile to create a tax incentive to encourage small businesses to add and keep employees and I’m going to work with Congress to pass one. FACTS: Neither party likes this idea and he has very little chance of making it happen. From the Scandals List # 142: “The St. Petersburg Times says Obama promised a $3,000 tax credit for businesses that add an employee. His stimulus bill did not include the idea and it appears to be dead. It never got support in Congress, even from Democrats. Lawmakers were concerned the credit wasn’t enough of an incentive. Tax policy analysts said the credit would be an administrative nightmare.”
  31. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 21 – Have Our Spending Cake and Eat the Deficit Too! 12/8/9 OBAMA: There are those who claim we have to choose between paying down our deficits on the one hand, and investing in job creation and economic growth on the other. But this is a false choice. Ensuring that economic growth and job creation are strong and sustained is critical to ensuring that we are increasing revenues and decreasing spending on things like unemployment so that our deficits will start coming down. FACTS: Interesting comments. His own budget director disagrees with him. Peter Orszag, liberal blogger from the Brookings Institution where Obama was speaking, once wrote for that organization that, “If we do invest more than two percent of our income, we must borrow the difference from foreigners – which would leave future generations of Americans increasing indebted to other nations…This borrowing from abroad, however, mortgages the future returns from domestic investment in the U.S.”
  32. Obama’s Brookings Bull # 22 – TARP Flip-Flop 12/9/9 This one comes from the Wall Street Journal: “This time, however, Mr. Obama is also proposing to use funds repaid by banks to the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program. When Congress passed TARP a year ago, the Democrats who ran the joint vowed that the cash was intended to save the financial system and that any returns would promptly go to pay down the debt. As Candidate Obama put it, “every penny” would go “directly back to the American people.” That was then.”
  33. Obama Won’t Give Congress Report on Fort Hood Massacre!– 12/9/9 Fox News: “The White House has been sitting on a preliminary review of the Fort Hood shooting since the end of November and refuses to share its contents with Congress, House Republicans say. Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have been pressing the Obama administration to either provide a copy of the review or brief them on it, arguing that it’s important for relevant members to be in the loop as the review goes forward. “They’re stonewalling us. They won’t give us anything,” Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com. “They have just refused to brief Congress any further on this whole matter. … It doesn’t make sense to me.” The National Security Council last month took control over informational briefings on the Nov. 5 shooting rampage, which left 13 dead and dozens wounded at the Texas base. The preliminary report from intelligence agencies was due at the end of November. A White House spokesman said in an e-mail Wednesday that the reason members of Congress have not been briefed on the report is because, “We’re reviewing it.” But Thornberry said the White House is obligated to share the information it has. He cited the National Security Act of 1947.”
  34. Holder Sending Gitmo Terrorists to ‘Rehab’ in Saudi Arabia where Some Simply are ‘Lost!’ 12/9/9 Fox News; “A senior Republican senator is demanding Attorney General Eric Holder suspend transfers of Guantanamo Bay detainees to Saudi Arabia until the “failures” of that kingdom’s so-called rehabilitation program are addressed. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.,…wrote…that 11 of Saudi Arabia’s 85 most wanted terrorists are “graduates” of the country’s rehab program, including some high-profile names. “The list of failed participants in the Saudi program reads like a ‘who’s who’ of Al Qaeda terrorists on the Arabian Peninsula,” Sessions wrote…Sessions’ office notes that about 120 detainees, many of neighboring Yemeni descent, have been sent to Saudi Arabia. Of that number, 108 have reportedly “graduated” and about 20 percent of that number have disappeared. The rest appear to be complying with the rules of rehabilitation.” – ConservativeAmerican.org: Disappeared?! So Obama’s plan to close Gitmo is simply to send these terrorists to the House of Saud where they “disappear?!”
  35. Obama’s EPA Chieftess Caught in a LieMichelle MalkinMichelle Malkin12/9/9 Michelle Malkin catches EPA radical Lisa Jackson in a lie: “EPA chief Lisa Jackson has denied that the greenhouse gas endangerment finding had anything to do at all with the Copenhagan climate change conference. Nope, don’t question the timing of the EPA’s war on carbon. Pure coincidence. Except…Jackson herself said the exact opposite in a statement Tweeted by a Mother Jones environmental reporter, Kate Sheppard, on Monday.”
  36. Geithner Flip-Flops on Obama’s call to ‘Wind Down” the TARP Program 12/9/9 Ed Morrisey at Hot Air: “Obama…said he would press Congress to…pay for additional infrastructure works, tax breaks for small businesses and incentives for consumers…“But with a fiscal crisis to match our economic crisis, we also must be prudent about how we fund it. So to help support these efforts, we’re going to wind down the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP — the fund created to stabilize the financial system so banks would lend again.” …Today, however, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner announced that the White House would extend the TARP program: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the administration is extending the financial bailout program until next fall.”…So “wind down” is the Obama version of Orwellian Newspeak for “extension”?”
  37. Obama Breaks Promise to Family Farmers 12/9/9 From Common Dreams comes this written by : “And it means ensuring that the policies being shaped at the Departments of Agriculture and Interior are designed to serve not big agribusiness or Washington influence peddlers, but the family farmers and the American People.” – President-elect Barack Obama, December 17 2008, Chicago, Illinois…It stopped there, the delivery of the promise fell short…Monsanto stalwarts Michael Taylor, special assistant to the FDA Commissioner for food safety and Roger Beachy, head of National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). Rajiv Shah, head of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) where his pro-biotech leanings will continue to be pushed on the developing world…Islam Siddiqui {ConservativeAmerican.org notes: See Scandal dated 10/26/9)} , Chief Agriculture Negotiator, office of U.S. Trade Representative, is a particularly troubling nomination. He is no friend of consumers, considering his most recent employment at CropLife America (CLA), the pesticide industries main trade association. As a registered lobbyist and vice president of regulatory affairs, Siddiqui was responsible for setting and selling CLA’s international and domestic agenda which, simply put, was to weaken regulations on pesticides and agricultural chemicals worldwide. He is no friend of farmers either, and not just organic farmers, even though he has a long history of distaste for organic agriculture. He promotes agribusiness, chemical companies, processors and grain marketers who make their profits by buying low, processing and selling high. In his world, a farmers job is to maintain corporate profits….President Obama noted as a candidate: “We’ll tell ConAgra that it’s [USDA] not the Department of Agribusiness. We’re going to put the peoples interests ahead of the special interests.” Just another empty promise. (Jim Goodman is a dairy farmer from Wonewoc WI and an IATP Food and Society Policy Fellow.)”
  38. Obama Lied About Substantive Talks with Republicans 12/9/9 A website called HotAirPundit reports that Karl Rove exposed this lie, “Rove: “There has not been one substantive meeting on Health Care in the House, the Senate or at the White House in which Republicans have a given seat at the table for substantive discussion”
  39. Obama’s Peace Prize “A Little Early” 12/10/9 Fox News: “the Dalai Lama…believes the award is “a little early” and cautioned the U.S. president against relying too much on his advisers.The exiled Tibetan leader won the Nobel prize 20 years ago for his peaceful opposition to Chinese rule in his country. The Dalai Lama told Sky News: “I think if you are realistic, it may have been a little early but it doesn’t matter, I know Obama is a very able person. Sometimes these individual persons rely on different advice from different people so like former President Bush junior, as a human being I really love him, really wonderful person, very honest, very truthful.But I think due to his advisers’ views, some of his policies have been a disaster.”
  40. Obama Still Blaming Bush for The “Glorious” War!– 12/13/9 Despite numerous broken promises to end war and bring troops home, President Obama continues to blame George W. Bush for everything. He told Couric-BS News today, “And one of the mistakes that was made over the last eight years is for us to have a triumphant sense about war. There was a tendency to say, “We can go in. We can kick some tail. This is some glorious exercise.” When in fact, this is a tough business.” – War is tough? Gosh. Imagine that! Obama is learning it is harder to be commander-in-chief than it is to criticize one from the Senate.
  41. Team Obama: Recession is Over, BUT it is NOT Over Too! 12/13/9 Fox News: “Everybody agrees that the recession is over,” said Larry Summers, director of the National Economic Council. “Of course not,” countered Council of Economic Advisers Chairwoman Christina Romer in a separate interview when asked if the recession is a thing of the past.” – Chicago Street Gang Politician Rahm Emanuel said the recession was over months ago. Barack Obama repeatedly says we are “Back from the Brink.”
  42. Obama Makes Bad Guys out of Bankers then Claims He’s Not Doing That! 12/14/9 Fox News:”The president set a tense tone for the meeting in an interview broadcast the night before in which he called Wall Street bankers “fat cats” whom he has little obligation to help. He (then) said Monday afternoon that he has no interest in “vilifying” Wall Street but wants them to be fully on board with efforts to spur job growth on Main Street.” – So, are they bad guys or not? More Jekyll & Hyde stuff from the President!
  43. Obama Upset with Wall Street Salaries while giving Huge Pay Raises to Federal Employees! 12/14/9 USA Today: “The number of federal workers earning six-figure salaries has exploded during the recession, according to a USA TODAY analysis of federal salary data. Federal employees making salaries of $100,000 or more jumped from 14% to 19% … Federal workers are enjoying an extraordinary boom time — in pay and hiring — during a recession that has cost 7.3 million jobs in the private sector. The highest-paid federal employees are doing best of all on salary increases. Defense Department civilian employees earning $150,000 or more increased from 1,868 in December 2007 to 10,100 in June 2009, the most recent figure available.When the recession started, the Transportation Department had only one person earning a salary of $170,000 or more. Eighteen months later, 1,690 employees had salaries above $170,000.The trend to six-figure salaries is occurring throughout the federal government, in agencies big and small, high-tech and low-tech. The primary cause: substantial pay raises and new salary rules.”There’s no way to justify this to the American people. It’s ridiculous,” says Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a first-term lawmaker who is on the House’s federal workforce subcommittee.” – Ya think?! Where is the Obama Pay Czar? He should look into this. Also, the President should quit pretending to be upset about “fat cats” earning high wages. Hypocrisy on parade!
  44. ObamaCare Nightmare Cost Control Illusion 12/14/9 Wall Street Journal Op-Ed: “ObamaCare’s core promise—better quality care for everyone at lower costs—is being exposed as an illusion as it degenerates into the raw exercise of political power. Naturally, the White House and its media booster club are working furiously to prop up this fiasco, especially on cost control.As Obama budget director Peter Orszag put it at a revealing media breakfast earlier this month, the Senate bill does everything the experts recommend to “get at the underlying drivers of health-care costs.” While he admitted that “we don’t know enough” to produce results right away, the key is to encourage “continuous improvement” through pilot programs and demonstration projects. Cost containment will actually take “years to decades,” Mr. Orszag conceded.” UPDATE 12/19/09: Freedom Works notes Obama said, “And it will slow the growth of health care costs for our families.” However, The U.S. Senate’s healthcare bill would raise insurance premiums by at least 10 percent by 2016 for those independently buying coverage… the Congressional Budget Office said.” UPDATE 12/19/09: Freedom Works notes Obama said, “And it will slow the growth of health care costs for our families.” However, The U.S. Senate’s healthcare bill would raise insurance premiums by at least 10 percent by 2016 for those independently buying coverage… the Congressional Budget Office said.”
  45. White House Lies about Pressuring Reid to Cut a Deal with Lieberman 12/15/9 The Huffington Post today says Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama have gone too far this time. The headline reads, ‘A Rahm Too Far: Time for Obama Voters to Pull the Plug!‘ This is the ultra-liberal Huffington Post mind you! They want socialist healthcare now and they feel like Obama is selling them out. Lee Stranahan writes, “Whatever happens with this bill, one thing is now crystal clear – the White House is calling the shots and they want a bill that’s a giveaway to the insurance industry with no real protections, public option, or Medicare rollback. There is NO standard here except passing a bill. Oh. And the White House is willing to lie about it, too. Enough. It is now time for anyone who supported Barack Obama in 2008 to let the President know loud and clear that this is not what we voted for it.” The lie Stranahan refers to comes from Talking Points Memo: “As Politico first reported, the White House is pressuring a reluctant Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to cut a deal with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) to keep the prospects for health care reform legislation alive, a keyed in aide confirms…The White House denies the charge. Spokesman Dan Pfeiffer tells TPMDC, “The report is inaccurate. The White House is not pushing Senator Reid in any direction.”
  46. President Obama gets Inappropriate at Home Depot! 12/15/9 The LA Times reports, “President Obama went to a Home Depot today… The president is calling on Congress to offer new incentives for homeowners and business to add insulation, replace leaky windows and doors and do other “retrofitting” that can save energy consumption and costs — and create some needed jobs in the process. “I know the idea may not be glamorous,” Obama said, alluding to a recent round-table talk. “Someone said insulation is not very sexy. … I disagree. … Here’s what’s sexy about it: saving money.” – ConservativeAmerican.org feels this is an inappropriate comment for a President of the United States to make. It’s also just plain bizarre and odd to call insulation “sexy.”
  47. Obama’s Connection to the Tiger Woods Scandal! 12/15/9 Check out the cover of the January, 2010 issue of Golf Digest magazine…
    Obama & Tiger on Cover of Golf Digest - A Collector's Item!
    The cover was reportedly created and ready to go prior to the Tiger Woods scandals breaking. The timing certainly is lousy for Barack Obama! You gotta love how it says 10 things Obama can learn from Tiger! Maybe it should be 14?! Wonder if Michelle will still let Barack golf with Tiger? UPDATE ADDED 12/26/9: The LA Times says “The fallout from the Tiger Woods scandal continues to grow as Golf Digest announced it was suspending his monthly instructional articles. “We respect Tiger’s decision to take a break from professional golf and focus on his family,” a Golf Digest publicist said. “Tiger’s bylined instruction articles will not be published in Golf Digest during his time away from the game.”
  48. Obama Welcoming Terrorists to His Home State! 12/15/9 The President announced today he will bring about 100 terrorists from Guantanamo Bay prison to Thomson, Illinois where they will be granted the full rights of a U.S. Citizen instead of being treated as prisoners of war. Fox reports, “The American people and a bipartisan majority of the Congress have already rejected bringing terrorists to U.S. soil for long-term detention, and current law prohibits it,” Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said in a statement. “The administration has failed to explain how transferring terrorists to Gitmo North will make Americans safer than keeping these terrorists off of our shores in the secure facility in Cuba…House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, blasted the move as “preposterous” and said the administration will look to “paint this as jobs plan while making Americans less safe. We’ve had votes in Congress that made it clear we want to keep terrorists out of America,” Boehner said on the House floor Tuesday. “I can tell you I won’t vote to spend one dime to move prisoners to the U.S.” ConservativeAmerican.org notes even Harry Reid has said he is against bringing any of these people to American soil. He hopes we will forget about that though. Perhaps Bill Ayers can make them feel at home! UPDATE ADDED 12/26/9: Hot Air says, “Newest broken promise: Gitmo to close no sooner than early 2011…officials now believe that they are unlikely to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and transfer its population of terrorism suspects until 2011 at the earliest.”
  49. Obama’s Latest Health Care Lie 12/15/9 Fire Dog Lake reports, “After exiting a meeting with the Senate Democratic caucus, President Obama approached the microphone and proceeded to tell a bald-faced lie about health care reform: “You talk to every health care economist out there, they will tell you that what ever ideas exist in terms of bending the cost curve and starting to reduce cost for families, businesses, and government, those elements are in this bill.” This statement is 100% false–and Obama knows that. This bill does not contain anywhere near most ideas for controlling health care costs. This bill does not even contain most of the cost-reducing ideas that were part of Obama’s health care plan during last year’s presidential campaign. What makes his lie so unbelievable is that Obama’s administration is right now fighting against one of the biggest cost control ideas that the president previously claimed to support. His administration is working to kill Dorgan’s drug re-importation amendment.”
  50. Obama’s “Mother of All Broken Campaign Promises!” 12/16/9 True/Slant reports Obama has broken his promise not to have smokey back-room deals with the drug companies. “A memo obtained by the Huffington Post confirms that the White House and the pharmaceutical lobby secretly agreed to precisely the sort of wide-ranging deal that both parties have been denying over the past week. . . .It says the White House agreed to oppose any congressional efforts to use the government’s leverage to bargain for lower drug prices or import drugs from Canada — and also agreed not to pursue Medicare rebates or shift some drugs from Medicare Part B to Medicare Part D, which would cost Big Pharma billions in reduced reimbursements.” Obama said once, “We’ll tell the pharmaceutical companies ‘thanks, but no, thanks’ for the overpriced drugs — drugs that cost twice as much here as they do in Europe and Canada.” Watch him make the promises below.
  51. Obama’s Broken Promise to Take on the Drug Industry 12/16/9 The Washington Post: “On the campaign trail, Barack Obama vowed to take on the drug industry by allowing Americans to import cheaper prescription medicine. “We’ll tell the pharmaceutical companies ‘thanks, but no, thanks’ for the overpriced drugs — drugs that cost twice as much here as they do in Europe and Canada,” he said back then. On Tuesday, the matter came to the Senate floor — and President Obama forgot the “no, thanks” part. Siding with the pharmaceutical lobby, the administration successfully fought against the very idea Obama had championed. “It’s got to be a little awkward,” said Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.).”
  52. Obama’s Broken Promise to Take on Terrorists in our Sights 12/16/9 From National Review Online, Newsweek and Allahpundit at Hot Air: “Geraghty (NRO) counts this as another star in the great galaxy of broken Obama promises, dating to the convention when he vowed to take out Bin Laden and his underlings “if we have them in our sights.” True? Five administration officials tell NEWSWEEK that the president has sided with political and diplomatic advisers who argue that widening the scope of the drone attacks would be risky and unwise. Obama is concerned that firing missiles into urban areas like Quetta, where intelligence reports suggest that Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar and other high-level militants have sometimes taken shelter, would greatly increase the risk of civilian casualties. It would also draw protests from Pakistani politicians and military leaders, who have been largely quiet about the drone attacks as long as they’ve been confined to the country’s out-of-sight border region.”
  53. Obama Scare Tactics: Nation Will Go Bankrupt Without ObamaCare! 12/16/9 Charles Hubris Gibson (why hasn’t he retired yet?), complete with his snobby grandma glasses, interviewed Obama. The President used scare tactics he has accused republicans of using. He said without his ObamaCare Nightmare, your health insurance costs will go up, your employer might drop health insurance all together and the nation will go bankrupt! He sure has that one backwards! It’s WITH ObamaCare that the nation may go Bankrupt! As Sarah Palin said in our Scandal dated 9/9/9, “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.”
  54. 12/17/9 Fox News: “President Obama’s recent nominee for ambassador to El Salvador was forced to withdraw her nomination to another diplomatic post a decade ago following concerns about ties to Cuba, raising red flags as her name heads to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee once again for approval. The White House announced the nomination of Mari Carmen Aponte last Wednesday along with a handful of other appointments. The selection has started to draw some attention given that former President Clinton nominated her for ambassador to the Dominican Republic in 1998, only to see the nomination fizzle after the foreign relations panel questioned her over her past relationship with someone who had apparently caught the attention of the FBI. One former official with knowledge of that nomination said the committee started scrutinizing Aponte after learning that she had attended a party at the Cuban mission to the United Nations in New York City, and that she had a relationship with someone, Roberto Tamayo, who had raised concern at the FBI over “possible ties to the Cuban government” and “repeated trips there.” The former official said the matter “sure as hell” should come up this time around.” UPDATE: The Washington Post reports Obama used a recess appointment to put Aponte in place despite objections from Conservative Americans, like U.S. Senator Jim DeMint: “The White House continued to deny senators information, despite numerous requests, and then recess appoints her to circumvent the advice and consent process. So much for transparency and accountability,” said DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton.
  55. Obama Predicts His Own Climate Defeat! 12/17/9 Fox News reports “White House officials said they hoped the final result would be a so-called operation agreement — weaker than a binding set of greenhouse gas limits with measurable target dates but stronger than a political commitment with no underlying action plan.” That’s quite a switch from earlier plans calling for Obama to show up on December 18th for a victory lap and the signing of some monumental climate treaty!
  56. Robert Gibbs Disagrees with Obama on Signing an Agreement Just to Have An Agreement! 12/17/9 You know how democrats are willing to dump all their original plans for health reform just to get a bill, any bill, signed by Christmas? Apparently some high up in Obama’s administration think that’s a dumb idea. Fox News reports White House Spinster Robert Gibbs made the following comment, “We’re not going there just to get an agreement for the sake of something that’s called an agreement.” Here’s the catch. Gibbs was talking about the Climate Hoax Conference in Copenhagen. Shouldn’t the same thing apply to issues here at home? Surely he must think so. It can’t be that he’s just being a BIG, FAT HYPOCRITE!!
  57. Axelrod says Howard Dean is Insane! 12/17/9 The Politico reports that White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod called former DNC Chair Howard Dean “Insane” while on MicroSoftNBC today! “Axelrod said Thursday that Howard Dean’s criticisms of health-care reform are “predicated on a bunch of erroneous conclusions” and that for progressives to torpedo the legislation “would be a tragic, tragic outcome. To defeat a bill that will bend the curve on this inexorable rise in health-care costs is insane!” – UPDATE 12/20/9: ABC: “Axelrod clarified that he didn’t say Dean was insane, but that “it would be insane to pass on the opportunity to enact the reform that would have such a positive impact on our future…it was probably an unfortunate choice of words.” – ConservativeAmerican.org observes it’s such a shame to see these guys fighting each other!
  58. Obama Sending Terrorists Back Home to Yemen! 12/18/9 The Washington Post: “The Obama administration is planning to repatriate six Yemenis held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a transfer that could be a prelude to the release of dozens more detainees to Yemen, according to sources with independent knowledge of the matter. The release is a significant first step toward dealing with the largest group of detainees at the prison — there are currently 97 Yemenis there — and toward meeting President Obama’s goal of closing the facility. But Yemen’s security problems and lack of resources have spawned fears about its ability to monitor and rehabilitate returnees. Critics of the administration charge that returning detainees to Yemen, a country where al-Qaeda is believed to be thriving, is tantamount to returning terrorists to the battlefield.
  59. Obama Announces Huge New Climate Agreement – To Do NOTHING! 12/18/9 In his latest global failure, President Obama was unable to accomplish anything meaningful at the Climate Hoax Conference…thank, God. Fox reports, “Obama announced a “meaningful and unprecedented breakthrough” in talks with China and three other countries on the final day of a climate change summit here — but the deal included no binding mandates to reduce emissions, and even Obama admitted the result fell short of expectations. A legally binding treaty “is going to be very hard, and it’s going to take some time.”
  60. Obama Uses Stimulus for Political Payoff to Democrats! 12/18/9 President Obama is choosing districts that voted democrat to get twice as much stimulus as those that voted republican. This is a clear example of how democrats use government tax dollars to ensure their own continued existence. It’s a scandal and a disgrace! Fox News: “Democratic districts have received nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses, according to a new study. The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.” ConservativeAmerican.org: So much for helping the areas hardest hit as Obama promised…yet another broken promise from the nation’s first socialist president. His words are meaningless and worthless.
  61. ObamaCare Nightmare Breaks Obama Pledge to Save Businesses Money 12/19/9 – Freedom Works has the Obama quote: “And it will slow the growth of health care costs for our families, our businesses, and our government.” However, the National Federation of Independent Businesses says the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which is short on savings and long on costs, is the wrong reform, at the wrong time and will increase healthcare costs and the cost of doing business. Freedom Works also reported that the Congressional Budget Office said that in general, firms with more than 50 workers that did not offer coverage would have to pay a penalty of $750 for each full-time worker if any of their workers obtained subsidized coverage through the insurance exchanges.”
  62. ObamaCare Nightmare Breaks Obama Pledge to Cut the Cost of a Typical Family by $2,500 12/19/9 – Freedom Works has the Obama quote: “I have made a solemn pledge that I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.” However, Freedom Works says the CBO reports the Reid Bill would cause the average premiums to increase by $2,100 for a family policy in the individual market.” — This one is a bit tricky. Team Obama was counting money the government would save in its $2,500 figure per family. Regardless, it seems to be very much false.
  63. Obama Lies About ObamaCare Reducing the Deficit (AGAIN) 12/21/9 President Obama today said his ObamaCare Nightmare will reduce the deficit by $132-Billion in the first ten years and another $1.3-Trillion in the second ten years. He said those “carping about big spending” have an argument that doesn’t hold water. Rush Limbaugh notes the ObamaCare Nightmare will worsen the budget and the budget deficit every year. If what the President is claiming is true, then why the need for billions in new taxes within the plan?! Hmmmm? UPDATE ADDED 12/26/9: Jake Tapper at ABC News, “But the deficit reduction number cited by the president has been disavowed by CBO. When CBO first guesstimated by how much the Senate health reform legislation would reduce the deficit, they said it would be about half a percent of GDP — $1.3 billion, said Democrats. But on Sunday, CBO Director Doug Elmendorf issued a correction, downgrading the estimate from half a percent of GDP to between a quarter and a half a percent. The reason is that CBO misinterpreted when recommendations from the Medicare Advisory Committee would kick in.” – Meanwhile, Ed Morrissey at Hot Air wants to know why ABC Nightly News ignored the fact Obama was lying! If Tapper had the story, why not air it?!
  64. Obama Deliberately Misleads Americans about National Debt! 12/21/9 The President of the United States today purposely left the truth out of his statements on the national debt. Obama said when he walked through the door, the country faced an economy headed south, and “massive tax cuts” that had been passed without “paying for them.” We’ve demonstrated here before how stupid the whole idea of “paying” for a tax cut is. Those tax cuts the President spoke of created MORE REVENUE for the federal government, not less. He’s still lying about that. Obama said during Bush’s term, the debt doubled and that we can’t continue to spend money like it’s Monopoly money! The audacity! Rush Limbaugh called him a coward for this remark. President Obama has quadrupled the deficit in less than one year. He has spent more money in less than one year than George W. Bush spent in all 8 years combined!! He claims to care about the debt and not spending “funny money,” but has done more to increase the debt than any other President ever. President Obama is a walking fraud.
  65. Senate Democrats Vote to Kill 210,000 Americans!! 12/21/9 From the Rush Limbaugh Show: Democrat Harry Reid told the Senate today that one American dies every ten minutes due to lack of health care and that the federal government must fix that now….well, maybe not “now.” What democrats keep forgetting to point out is that the taxes in the ObamaCare Nightmare start right away, but the new reforms don’t start for another four years to help with the Obama 2012 campaign. That delay of four years, if Reid is right, will cost the lives of 210,000 Americans!
  66. Obama Breaks Promise Not To Tax Americans Earning Less than $200,000 a Year! (AGAIN) 12/21/9 Former White House Spokeswoman Dana Perino pointed out of Fox & Friends this morning that no one is talking about how the ObamaCare Nightmare bill in the Senate also breaks Obama’s big promise to to raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 or couples making less than $250,000. There are billions and billions in new taxes in this nightmare bill and many of them apply to all taxpayers.UPDATE ADDED 12/27/9: Just A Conservative Girl points out, “With the release of Sen. Harry Reid’s Manager’s Amendment, the Senate healthcare bill now contains seven tax hikes on families making less than $250,000 per year. Each of the seven tax hikes are in violation of President Obama’s “firm pledge” not to raise “any form” of taxes on these families.”
  67. Obama Helping the Same Insurance Companies He Tried to Vilify! 12/21/9 While President Obama spent much time painting insurance companies to be the bad guys in health reform, his ObamaCare Nightmare working its way through the U.S. Senate is a huge Christmas gift to those same companies! It requires all Americans to buy medical insurance…from Private Companies! So, he’s helping the same ones he calls “fat cats?”
  68. Obama Administration Bribing Public Officials?? 12/21/9 The American Patriot Commission Blog: “Dingy Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Dear Leader have conspired, in an ongoing criminal enterprise, that crosses state lines, to bribe public officials (Senator Nelson to name one) and to usurp the Constitution of the united States of America. RICO is codified as Chapter 96 of Title 18 of the United States Code, 18 U.S.C. § 1961–19. Reid, Pelosi and Obama are guilty of violation of 18 U.S.C. § 201 : US Code – Section 201: Bribery of public officials and witnesses. They have used tax payer money to payoff Senators and Representatives to assist in the systematic destruction of America.” – ConservativeAmerican.org isn’t sure that laws were broken. However, it was odd to watch Harry Reid brag about having bought the votes of various politicians. Someone should investigate this to see if laws were broken. If they were, people should be prosecuted!
  69. More Fascism from Obama – Limits Pay and Profit of Private Industry! 12/21/9 – The ObamaCare Nightmare legislation in the U.S. Senate limits executive pay at privately owned and operated insurance companies! These are NOT companies that received any bailouts or government help, yet the socialist-democrats have taken the un-American step of limiting not only executive pay but also the profit these companies can earn! This is a horrible stab in the heartbeat of Free Market American Capitalism! This cannot be allowed to happen. Anyone who supports this plan must be voted out. Rush Limbaugh today correctly notes that these types of actions are Fascist! It’s time for a new national organization: “Defeat the 60!” All 60 of these Senators voting for this bill must be voted out. Each one of them must lose the next election!
  70. Mao in White House for Christmas?! – Obama’s Radical Christmas Tree! 12/24/9Mao on Obama Christmas Tree!Mao on Obama Christmas Tree!Fox News: “Mao Zedong is in the White House, hanging out with a drag queen. Not far away, Barack Obama is making a play to have his head etched in stone. Critics of President Obama are setting their sights this week on the official White House Christmas tree, which features controversial ornaments including an orb depicting the late Chinese dictator, another that shows drag queen Hedda Lettuce, and yet another that shows a picture of Mount Rushmore — with Obama’s head pasted to the side of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt’s. God rest ye, merry gentlemen.” – Not a surprise from the most Radical President ever! He wants his head on Mount Rushmore?! *Gag!* They love Mao at the Obama White House! Remember Anita Dunn?! UPDATE 12/26/9: The LA Times says this is no big deal because the artwork of Mao was making fun of the communist dictator. They don’t bother to explain the drag queen. UPDATE 12/28/9: The LA Times continues to make fun of this one, saying it’s no controversy. Now they say one of the ornaments had Ronald Reagan on it.
  71. Obama Skips Church on Christmas Eve! 12/24/9 while the Time magazine’s headline says “No Churchgoing Christmas for the First Family,” the mag seems more concerned about the Obama’s making it to Hawaii for Christmas! From Time: “The Senate vote on final passage of health reform almost scuttled their plans, but it looks like the First Family will still make it to Hawaii for Christmas. They’ve had a whirlwind holiday season so far, starting with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, through hosting more than 50,000 people for 27 parties and open houses, and ending with a visit by the First Lady, Malia and Sasha, and the family’s dog Bo, to deliver cookies to the Children’s National Medical Center. The Obamas have also started their own holiday traditions in their new home, adding a Christmas wishing tree to the decorations festooning the White House. But there’s one common Christmas practice not on the First Family’s schedule: a visit to Christmas Eve church services. Church, in fact, has been a surprisingly tough issue for the Obamas. They resigned their membership with Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in 2008 after Obama renounced the church’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. And while the First Family intended to find a local church to attend when they moved to Washington, concerns about crowds and displacing regular worshippers has prevented them from finding a new religious home during their first year here. The Obamas have attended Sunday services in Washington three times this year — once at the predominantly African-American 19th Street Baptist Church, and twice at St. John’s Episcopal Church across Lafayette Square from the White House. Asked at Tuesday’s White House briefing whether the First Family is still searching for a local church to join, press secretary Robert Gibbs responded: “The President has attended fairly regularly up at Camp David a church that he’s comfortable in and has enjoyed attending.”UPDATE 12/30/09: Sunlit Pundit wonders if this is a lie based on what candidate Obama said about his faith during the campaign.
  72. Obama’s Christmas Eve “Taxpayer Massacre!” 12/24/9 After the New Year, the Wall Street Journal reported on what really happened Christmas Eve in Washington, D.C. calling it a “Taxpayer Massacre!” From the WSJ: “the Treasury’s Christmas Eve taxpayer massacre lifting the $400 billion cap on potential losses for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as well as the limits on what the failed companies can borrow. The Treasury is hoping no one notices, and no wonder. Taxpayers are continuing to buy senior preferred stock in the two firms to cover their growing losses—a combined $111 billion so far. When Treasury first bailed them out in September 2008, Congress put a $200 billion limit ($100 billion each) on federal assistance. Last year, the Treasury raised the potential commitment to $400 billion. Now the limit on taxpayer exposure is, well, who knows?…The White House budget office still doesn’t fully account for Fannie and Freddie’s spending as federal outlays, though Washington controls the companies. Nor does it include as part of the national debt the $5 trillion in mortgages—half the market—that the companies either own or guarantee. The companies have become Washington’s ultimate off-balance-sheet vehicles, the political equivalent of Citigroup’s SIVs, that are being used to subsidize and nationalize mortgage finance…After December 31, Team Obama would have needed the consent of Congress to raise the taxpayer exposure beyond $400 billion. By law, negative net worth at the companies forces them into “receivership,” which means they have to be wound down. Unlimited bailouts will now allow the Treasury to keep them in conservatorship, which means they can help to conserve the Democratic majority in Congress by increasing their role in housing finance. “
  73. Obama’s Executive Pay Hypocrisy at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac! 12/24/9 After the New Year, the Wall Street Journal reported on what really happened Christmas Eve in Washington, D.C. calling it a “Taxpayer Massacre!” From the WSJ: “after presiding over a combined $24 billion in losses last quarter, Fannie CEO Michael Williams and Freddie boss Ed Haldeman are getting substantial raises. Each is now eligible for up to $6 million annually. Freddie also has one of the world’s highest-paid human resources executives. Paul George’s total compensation can run up to $2.7 million. It must require a rare set of skills to spot executives capable of losing billions of dollars. Where is Treasury’s pay czar when we actually need him? You guessed it, Fannie and Freddie are exempt from the rules applied to the TARP banks. The government gave away the game that these firms are no longer in the business of making profits when it announced that the CEOs will be paid entirely in cash, though it is discouraging that practice at other big banks. Who would want stock in the Department of Housing and Urban Development?”
  74. Reid & Obama Are Using Double Entry Lie Accounting on Health Reform Claims! 12/26/9 Ace of Spades reports, “Of course our “deficit hawk” president will veto this bill if it gets to his desk in this condition, right? …To describe the full amount of HI trust fund savings as both improving the government’s ability to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the government’s fiscal position. That’s CYA bureaucrat speak for “These fools are playing you like a Steinway suckers!” An even simpler two word translation: “they lie”.
  75. Obama’s Broken Promise to Reign in Lobbyists 12/26/9 My Kids Deserve Better reports Obama has failed to do any “reforming” when it comes to lobbyists and how things are done in Washington, D.C.: “K Street lobbyists are raking in the cash with Barack Obama and the D.C. liberals running the show. According to Politico, lobbyists will shatter last years record $3.3 billion in fees to lobby Congress and the Obama Administration. Considering that Obama campaigned on reigining in lobbying efforts, this is just one more broken campaign promise in a record shattering year for broken campaign promises, corruption, irresponsible binge spending and dishonesty that went into over drive three years ago. Is this the change you had hoped for?
  76. Obama’s “Biggest” Broken Campaign Promise 12/26/9 The Seminal at the liberal FireDogLake website and AlterPolitics.com report, “Obama’s biggest campaign promise, as Digby reminded us all, was that he would not be beholden to special interest groups — the ones who always manage to thwart all efforts of meaningful reform (as Obama eloquently described above). And, yet, before the health care initiative was even launched, Obama essentially smothered ‘Change’ in its crib, by doing EXACTLY what he said he wouldn’t — he struck backdoor deals with the entrenched interest groups. And the President now pretends that he fought hard — though we all saw he didn’t. In fact, not only was he MIA — refusing to outline any priorities for a health care reform bill — his own White House was undermining his campaign promises at every turn, insisting they weren’t essential for Obama’s signature. He now pretends the opposition was just too fierce, too dug in — though we’ve heard from the Senators themselves that he never once pressured anyone on the public option. And, of course, he clearly didn’t want Reid using reconciliation. Obama wanted the bill he got — the one cooked up by the entrenched interests in his back door deal. By not using reconciliation, he believed the Blue Dogs would give him the cover he needed to emerge from this industry giveaway unscathed. And now Obama appears frustrated; frustrated that the Left won’t give him HIS due victory, and applaud him for this bill — this trillion dollar wealth redistribution from the middle class to special interests.” – And that’s what his lefty pals think of him!
  77. Obama’s Broken Public Option Promise 12/26/9 The Left is unhappy Obama caved on his promise not to sign a bill without the public option. From liberal website FireDogLake: “Barack Obama told the Washington Post that he never campaigned on the public option. I recently provided resounding proof — as aggregated by Think Progress — and also included a new scathing ad being run by The Progressive Change Campaign Committee SHOWING Obama telling his supporters that he would only sign a plan that contained a public option. Obama had in fact made the public option a major part of his health care reform promise during his campaign. Anyone who supported him knows this, and so his lying about it is only going to polarize him even further from his base — or should I say, whatever remains of it.” Ouch. These people are ticked off!
  78. Two Political Opponents Ask for an Investigation into Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel! 12/26/9Obam's RahmObam’s RahmFrom Fox News: “Two strange bedfellows have asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate President Obama’s right-hand man, chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, for his potential role in the near collapse of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The letter by Jane Hamsher, founder of the liberal Firedoglake Web site, and Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform Chief, was sent Wednesday, one day before the Treasury Department announced that it will lift the $400 billion financial cap on loans to the government-sponsored enterprises to make sure they stay afloat. It also arrived just before the Federal Housing Financial Authority announced Thursday that it would place salary caps on 11 of the companies’ top executives. Hamsher and Norquist want to know now whether the bailout was in part the result of corrupt practices by Emanuel while he was a board member at Freddie in 2000-2001.”
  79. Napolitano Says The System Worked with the Man Who Tried to Bomb a Flight to Detroit!
  80. 12/28/9 – The Cypress Times: “Maybe Secretary Napolitano meant to say that the system didn’t work before it worked. Actually, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano who changed the term “terrorism” to “man-caused” disaster shortly after taking office this year said yesterday on CNN that “the system worked”. She added, “there is no suggestion that the suspect was improperly screened”. Apparently aside from the fact that he got on board a plane with powerful explosives on his person. This morning on the Today Show, Napolitano said, “Our system did not work in this instance. No one is happy or satisfied with that.” Which is it?…maybe, in the interest of the truth, Napolitano should have said “We blew it”, because the Obama Administration has blown it on terrorism since they took office. First and foremost by appointing Napolitano as Secretary of Homeland Security. ”

  81. Obama & The Latino Let-Down: No Immigration Reform Despite Promise!!
  82. 12/28/9 – “During an interview with Univision in May 2008, Obama continuously voiced his promise that made it sound like there would be immigration reform within the first year of his presidency if he was elected. He was elected with well over 50 percent of the Latino vote and his first year ends on January 20, 2010…“The chants of “¡Si se puede!” have died down” – Big surprise…another Obama broken promise.

  83. Obama’s Broken Promise on the Iraq War # 7 12/28/9Kathleen McKinleyKathleen McKinleyThe lovely “Right Wing Sparkle” reminds us that today’s reality in Iraq “is a far cry from his rhetoric during the campaign where he (Obama) said, “I will bring this war to an end in 2009. So don’t be confused.” We’re still there. Not only did he not end this war, he is expanding the Afghan War. Kathleen McKinley (Right Wing Sparkle) has a new blog now. Check it out here!
  84. Obama Calls Terrorist “Alleged,” and an “Isolated Extremist!”
  85. 12/29/9 From the Obama File: “Obama’s reference to the “alleged” Crotch-Bomber as an “isolated extremist,” and Napolitano saying there was “no indication” that the attack was “part of anything larger,” seems to be Obama’s default setting when faced with terrorism. He said as much about the Nov. 5 Fort Hood massacre, even though the FBI had previously monitored communications between shooter Nidal Hasan and Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical imam and al Qaeda commander born in New Mexico and believed to be in Yemen. The Crotch-Bomber also reportedly is one of al-Awlaki’s followers and said he was one of many bombers trained by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula who will seek to attack the United States. Other evidence pointing to a larger plot includes a report that the Crotch-Bomber had an accomplice in Amsterdam, the sophistication of the bomb design, and al Qaeda’s admission that it was behind the attempt.” The Obama File is an excellent site. Check in with them often.

  86. Obama Administration Fails to Fill Key Anti-Terror Positions 12/29/9 Fox News: “Two federal agencies charged with keeping potential terrorists off airplanes and out of the country have been without their top leaders for nearly a year. It took the Obama administration more than eight months to nominate anyone to lead the Transportation Security Administration and the Customs and Border Protection agency. The attempted Christmas Day terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound airliner has prompted a review of U.S. security policies. The acting heads of those agencies — both created in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — will be at the forefront of these discussions.”
  87. Obama Disagrees with His Own Homeland Security Chieftess! 12/29/9 In Obama’s second attempt to address the public about the Christmas Day Terror Attack (since his first attempt was such a miserable failure), the President took issue with Janet Napolitano’s statement that “the system worked.” AP reports Obama said, “systemic failure” in security allowed the attempted Christmas Day attack on a Northwest Airlines flight. Mr. Obama said information that could have prevented the would-be bomber from boarding the plane did not get the attention it deserved.” Obama still did not manage to find a tie or a razor. Those must be hiding under his golf clubs somewhere.
  88. Obama Has Done Nothing To Make Us Safer Despite His Own Words! 12/30/9 In August of 2007, Senator Barack Obama declared, “We are no safer now than we were after 9/11.” He became president in January. Are we still “no safer?” What has he done since taking office to make us safer? Nothing. Yesterday he admitted there were both “human and systemic failures” that resulted in a Nigerian man boarding a plane bound for Detroit with explosives.
  89. Obama Wants to Be Fair to Islamist Extremists?! 12/30/9 Peter Johnson, Jr. reported on Fox News this morning that Obama once indicated he wanted terrorists tried in civil, or criminal, courts rather than military tribunals to show the Muslim world we are a fair people! The fatal flaw in the Obama logic is that having them view us as Fair Great Satans is no different than having us be viewed as Unfair Great Satans! Republican Congressman Pete King is demanding Obama put Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab on trial in a military court, not a civilian court. With Obama’s desire to deny that we’re really in a war on terror at all (he has only used the word “terror” a handful of times in the last year), he has no interest in responding to Representative King. Meanwhile, the lefty Think Progress(ives) website is upset with Dick Cheney for saying Obama is, “trying to pretend we are not at war.”
  90. Obama Breaks Earmark Promise Big Time in Defense Bill! 12/30/9 Michael Ehline reports: “Lawmakers set aside more than $4 billion in earmarks in the just-approved 2010 defense appropriations bill, and watered down efforts to curb the practice of targeting spending for programs in members’ districts…the earmarks in the defense-spending bill could point to a longer-term clash between lawmakers and Mr. Obama, who campaigned on a pledge of changing the way Congress allocates earmarks. Mr. Obama has said that earmarks can be a waste of government funds and wants more public information about how they are awarded by Congress.” From FloppingAces.Net (OBAMA) “If a project doesn’t support our troops, we will not fund it. If a system doesn’t perform, we will terminate it. And if Congress sends me a defense bill loaded with that kind of pork, I will veto it” -President Obama, Aug 17, 2009, VFW speech.
  91. Obama Appointment Scandal # 90 – Jide Zeitlin 12/30/9 From Josh Rogin at The Cable: “Jide Zeitlin, the Obama administration’s nominee to be America’s point man for financial reform at the United Nations, has withdrawn himself from consideration for the job, an administration official tells The Cable. Zeitlin, a former Goldman Sachs executive and telecom entrepreneur, had faced criticism for his business dealings related to Indian contractors and was also accused of identity fraud for an incident in which he admitted to sending an email to investors masked as coming from one of his competitors. Zeitlin testified before Congress that the email was a prank.” The Cable says Zeitlin may also have had a problem with a woman claiming she was lured into a romantic relationship with him. UPDATE 3/29/2010: Zeitlin is number eight on Conservative American U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s “Top 10” list of President Obama’s nominees and appointees who have resigned in disgrace.”
  92. Obama Administration May Have Violated Executive Order 12/31/9 The Weekly Standard: “Did the Obama administration, by releasing Qais and Laith Qazali and more than 100 members of the Iranian-backed Asaib al Haq, violate an executive order put in place by President Ronald Reagan to prevent negotiations with hostage takers? Senators Jeff Sessions and Jon Kyl asked that very question to the Obama administration in a letter sent to the president in July…According to a congressional staffer, the Obama administration has yet to answer the letter.”
  93. Another Obama Official Seal Scandal?? 1/1/10 –New Obama Seal?!New Obama Seal?!From Paul Smalera at True/Slant: “Remember last year when candidate Obama’s team put a mocked up presidential seal on his podium at an event, causing an uproar? The seal combined elements of the Presidential Seal with the distinct visual cues of Obama’s campaign graphics and fonts. Critics called it a sign of hubris, arrogance, and entitlement. (This was in June 2008, when the presidential race was far from decided.) It was pulled after one speech, never to be used again. Well, someone at barackobama.com didn’t get the memo. A few weeks ago I pulled this screenshot from the site, showing a new seal–this time a weird version of the Great Seal of the United States mashed up with the Presidential Seal–the one that says “e pluribus unum” on it. You can only see it for a split second–as the website is loading…Which begs the question, why have it there at all?” Smalera is no conservative. In fact he says in the same post, “I’m not a teaparty, birther nutjob. In fact I’ve defended Obama policies several times in my posts on this site and my other writing.” So this one, like many items on our list, comes from the left. ConservativeAmerican.org notes Obama also made up a seal for the ficticious “Office of the President-Elect.”
  94. Did Obama Break a Promise to Ban Permanent Replacements for Striking Workers? 1/1/10 – The Oakland Press reported in November of 2008, that “Obama also is calling for new legislation banning the use of permanent replacements for striking workers. A ban on replacement workers would be as, or if not more, controversial than card check because it would effectively neutralize most employers’ ability to block potentially crippling strikes…Card check and striker replacement legislation are basically efforts by the AFL-CIO and other unions to punish employers for abusing the existing system.” Some AFL-CIO workers feel Obama has broken this promise. One wrote, “In an attempt to make us forget about NAFTA and the broken promise of an anti-strike replacement workers bill, the Democrats brought in a smooth talker and promise of the Employee Free Choice Act.”
  95. Obama’s Customs Staff Changes Story on Christmas Terror Attack! 1/2/10 MLive reports, “A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection now says that a man who was handcuffed and questioned by authorities on Christmas Day was a passenger on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 — just days after saying that person arrived to Detroit aboard a different flight. In an email to The Detroit News Thursday night, Customs spokesman Ron Smith acknowledged that a person from Flight 253 was handcuffed after search dogs found something in his carry-on bag. Smith said the email — which was also sent to attorneys Lori and Kurt Haskell — was based on new information he had received. The passenger was not arrested or detained, and was allowed to leave Detroit Metro Airport with the rest of the Flight 253 passengers, according to WWJ. The News said nothing was found in the man’s bag. The Haskells and at least two other Flight 253 passengers said they saw a man being handcuffed and taken away by authorities.” U.S. Customs & Border Protection staff initially denied the claims.
  96. Obama’s Broken Promise to the Alex Hermstad Family– 1/2/10 Recent reports at ExposeObama.com, and Western Journalism speak of a Pilot-Tribune story by Editor Dana Larsen. “Every politician will tell you they will be there when you are desperate for help…But who will keep that promise when a crisis comes? Apparently not the…Democratic candidate for the presidency, according to a Storm Lake family facing a critical, undiagnosed illness of a teenager daughter. “It has been one long frustration,” said Lori Hermstad, who has watched her previously healthy, athletic 15-year-old daughter Alexandria – Alex – slowly lose all movement of her body since 2005, in a mysterious illness that doctors have been unable to explain. After exhausting all other avenues for help in trying to gain the attention of medical experts,…shortly before the Iowa Caucuses, she started to appeal to various presidential candidates. Only one, Barack Obama, responded at all. The Hermstads were encouraged, and invited Obama to visit their home while he was in town to campaign at Storm Lake High School…”And when Obama came in he was smiling and shook my hand and gave me a hug and said that he was coming to see Alex after all – that they just hadn’t been able to tell us because of security reasons,” Lori said. Obama talked to Alex for a few moments, and had his picture taken with her. He was kind to her twin sister Jaci, and listened to Lori’s concerns. He said he would like to be our liaison with the federal government.” Lori had previously spoken with John Edwards, who never took any action on their behalf. “After that kind of letdown, finally, with Obama, it was the first time that it seemed that someone had heard us,” Lori said.She tried to share the story of Obama’s visit to Alex with the media, but no one in the metropolitan media would do it, she said. The family tried to be patient, realizing that Obama would be tied up with campaign events during the caucus season, but finally, Lori started calling his staff. “Okay, when is Senator Obama going to start helping?” she asked. No one would follow through on the promises. Lori asked the Obama campaign to use his pull to get her story on the Oprah Winfrey show…They even drove to Chicago to try to get into the studio to meet with Oprah’s people. They could not get access, but Obama’s staff said they had five people working on it and that they would call the Hermstads back within 30 minutes. “Five hours later we were still standing there, and they never did call back. Here we were in winter weather standing outside these locked doors. It really takes away your dignity…” Lori said. “I realize now that the Obama people…thought that Alex would die over the summer and the issue would go away,” the Storm Lake mother said. All she really wanted from Obama, she says, is a phone call. “We needed to get through to doctors who might be able to give us some answers. I don’t think it was a lot to ask. He has pull – he could have made one call.” Alex’s relatives were losing patience rapidly. Despite a barrage of messages, Obama’s staff was no longer responding. “…how can you stand at the bedside of a girl like this and not be moved to do something? I guess that they feel that he came, so he’s done his part.” …a world renowned neuro-geneticist has offered to come to Storm Lake himself to see Alex.
    Finally, it seems to the family, there is some hope…(LORI:) “A lot of times it seems that our politicians Say they are here to help, but when it comes down to it, they are not. People should know that.” — Dana Larsen later wrote the President saying in part, “Hours after Tom Harkin met Alex Hermstad, he had been on the phone, and had almost instantly been accepted into a national program for children for undiagnosed diseases. Mr. Obama, you could have made that call. You promised. And it isn’t too late to help the girl and others like her. But if has come to the point where even for you, campaigning, winning is more important than the people you are suppose to serve, goodness help us. There is no Change in that, sir.” – NOTE: ALEX LATER PASSED AWAY WIHTOUT RECEIVING ANY HELP FROM OBAMA.
  97. Obama Breaks Promise of Consequences for Iran! 1/3/10 As we predicted, Obama is dealing with Iran just like North Korea. He promises consequences, then offers none when the deadline passes. “Iran dismissed an end-of-2009 deadline imposed by the Obama administration and its international partners to accept a U.N.-drafted deal to swap most of its enriched uranium for nuclear fuel. The deal would reduce Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium, limiting — at least for the moment — its capability to make nuclear weapons. The U.S. and its allies have demanded Iran accept the terms of the U.N.-brokered plan without changes… Back in 2008, Obama started his empty threats to Iran! From the Haaretz website: “U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama told an audience at the second U.S. presidential debate on Tuesday that he would deliver a tough and direct message to Iran that if they did not change their behavior there would be dire consequences.” From David Ignatius at the Washington Post comes this observation: “Can we curb Iran’s nuclear program? The clock on President Obama’s timetable for engagement was supposed to run out New Year’s Eve. But the administration is adding a little extra time by keeping the door open for talks before a vote on new U.N. sanctions, probably in March or April.” So AGAIN Obama is going to the U.N. to ASK THEM to deliver on HIS promised consequences!”
  98. Obama Aide Offers Deal to Terrorist! 1/4/10 John Brennan says “in terms of plea agreements, we’re going to pursue that.” He was talking on NBC’s meet the Depressed… VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  99. Team Obama Says There’s No Upside or Downside to Trying Terrorists in Criminal Courts! 1/4/10 As Team Obama continues to provide the Constitutional rights of a U.S. citizen to a foreign terrorist, an Obama Aide says it doesn’t matter if the terrorists are tried in criminal or military courts! From the Weekly Standard: “Instead of just admitting that the liberal lawyers at the Justice Department and the administration believe being nicer to terrorists will pay some amorphous and as yet unseen dividends in the way the world perceives us, thereby creating fewer terrorists, Brennan tries to argue there is no upside to bringing this terrorist into civilian courts: WALLACE: Just briefly, what’s the downside of treating him as an enemy combatant? BRENNAN: “There’s — there are no downsides or upsides in particular cases. What we’re trying to do is to make sure we apply the right tool in the right instance. In this case, we made a determination that he should be tried in U.S. criminal court.” WEEKLY STANDARD: Well, one of the upsides would be you wouldn’t have to plea bargain with a terrorist. Another would be while you weren’t plea bargaining, you could be getting actionable intelligence about other terrorist attacks. But instead of wrestling with those issues, Brennan chooses the “trust me” message Holder used when confronted by 9/11 family member Alice Hoagland in November over the KSM trial: “This is almost a ‘trust me’ thing, I suppose,” he said. “There are reasons why bringing this case in an Article III [federal] court, when it comes to the admissibility of certain evidence, is really the right way to go, and really maximizes our chances of getting a successful outcome.” Yeah, Mrs. Hoagland wasn’t convinced either.”
  100. Obama Team Breaks Transparency Promise with Secret No-Conference Committee! 1/4/10 The Atlantic is reporting: “democrats in the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate are planning to skip the Conference Committee process on the health reform bill… “Democrats are “almost certain” to bypass the conference process to pass a merged health care bill through both chambers of Congress, according to two senior Democratic Hill staffers (one from the House and one from the Senate), The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn reports–a decision that will likely fuel some GOP attacks on health reform. Instead of convening a formal conference committee–where a handful of lawmakers of both parties from the House and Senate negotiate to hammer out a final bill–Democrats from the both chambers will likely meet privately, without Republicans, to finalize a bill that will be sent back to each chamber for final passage.”
  101. Obama’s Homeland Security Failure 1/5/10 Obama’s Terror Guy, John Brennan, insisted Sunday there was no smoking gun that would have lead them to prevent the attempted Christmas Day bombing over Detroit. Even liberal hero Maureen Dowd isn’t buying that nonsense! She writes, “If we can’t catch a Nigerian with a powerful explosive powder in his oddly feminine-looking underpants and a syringe full of acid, a man whose own father had alerted the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria, a traveler whose ticket was paid for in cash and who didn’t check bags, whose visa renewal had been denied by the British, who had studied Arabic in Al Qaeda sanctuary Yemen, whose name was on a counterterrorism watch list, who can we catch?”
  102. Obama Diverts Intelligence Money to Climate Research! 1/5/10 The National Center for Public Policy Research says, “The Obama Administration is tasking some of our nation’s most elite intelligence-gathering agencies to divert their resources to environmental scientists researching global warming. Experts with The National Center for Public Policy Research are decrying this practice as a distraction from important counterterrorism duties. They further question if it a possible avenue to renew climate change subterfuge already plaguing some of these scientists. “This is another example of President Obama not taking terrorism seriously,” said Deneen Borelli, a fellow with the National Center’s Project 21 black leadership network. “Our enemies must be laughing at the Obama Administration’s incompetence.” A January 5 article in the New York Times reported that the White House restarted a program in which scientists are obtaining classified intelligence data from the Central Intelligence Agency and National Reconnaissance Office. Information from these secret government surveillance programs is being used to track climate change. A similar program was discontinued by the Bush Administration in 2001. Former vice president and current climate change entrepreneur Al Gore began lobbying for its renewal in 2008…”Given the very real threat posed by terrorists, it is ridiculous and downright dangerous to divert any intelligence resources to monitoring polar ice,” added Borelli. “Its said this won’t hinder regular intelligence-gathering, but it’s also clear that agencies can’t yet share data and track a terrorism suspect who was identified by his own father. It’s unwise to further distract our intelligence network by forcing it to consult with scientists about icebergs, polar bears and sea lions. The Obama Administration appears to be putting a left-wing political agenda before the safety and security of our nation.”
  103. Obama Appointment Scandal # 91 – Names Transgender Appointee to Key Post! 1/5/10 After failing to live up to his promise to be the “gay champion,” Barack Obama has nominated a Transgender individual who goes by the name of Amanda Simpson to be “senior technical advisor to the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security.” ABC says she is on the Board of the National Center for Transgender Equality. About.com says a transgender is “One who dresses as, desires to be, transitions toward or identifies as a person of the opposite sex. These individuals represent the “T” in GLBTQ and can be drag queens, transvestites or transsexuals.”

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.
