18 Major Scandals in Obama’s ‘Scandal-Free’ Presidency

at-no-time

They’re saying “Obama’s presidency was scandal-free” but that don’t make it so.  Here’s a short list from Breitbart of the many scandals Team Obama would like us to forget:

The great “stimulus” heist: A trillion dollars wasted on economic “stimulus” spending that created virtually zero private-sector jobs.  A great deal of that money apparently vanished into thin air.

Operation Fast and Furious: The Obama administration’s insane program to arm Mexican drug lords resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexican citizens.

AG Eric Holder held in contempt of Congress: Holder was the first sitting member of any president’s cabinet to earn this distinction.  Of course, Democrats closed ranks behind Holder, the White House protected him, and the media allowed him to spin the contempt vote as mere “political theater.”

ObamaCare: Everything about ObamaCare is a scandal, from the President’s incessant lies about keeping your old plan if you liked it, to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s insane statement “We need to pass it to find out what’s in it.”

Spying on journalists: Establishment media came about as close to falling out of love with Barack Obama as ever when his administration was caught spying on journalists.

The IRS scandal: A highly politicized IRS admitted to selectively targeting conservative groups, then brazenly lied about not having backups of relevant computer data.

Benghazi: Libya was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a known terrorist hot zone without sufficient security. And the Obama administration knowingly told a false story during the first few weeks after the attack.

Hillary Clinton’s secret server: She perpetrated her email offenses while working as Obama’s Secretary of State and he knew about it.

The Pigford scandal: The abuse of a program meant to compensate minority farmers for racial discrimination exploded under Obama.

NSA spying scandal: Snowden’s pilfering of sensitive National Security Agency data was a debacle that damaged national security. President Obama and his administration made many false statements as they tried to contain the political damage.

Bowe Bergdahl:  The prisoner swap that freed him from the Taliban and its allies was riddled with lies, illegal activity, and bad judgment.

Iran nuclear deal and ransom payment: Everything about Obama’s dealings with Iran has been scandalous, beginning with his silence while the Green Revolution was brutally put down by the mullahs in 2009. The Iran nuclear deal was pushed with lies and media manipulation. The infamous pallet of cash that wasn’t a ransom has become symbolic of Obama’s mendacity and penchant for breaking the rules, when he thinks following them is too much trouble.

Polluting the Colorado river: The Environmental Protection Agency managed to turn the Colorado River orange under this greenest of green Presidents. Of course there was a cover-up.

The GSA scandal: The General Services Administration was caught wasting ridiculous amounts of taxpayer money on lavish parties and silly projects.  Of course there was a cover-up.

The VA death-list scandal: Veterans were put on secret death lists while executives handed in phony status reports and signed themselves up for big bonuses.

Solyndra: Billions of taxpayer dollars were wasted financing companies with absurdly unrealistic business models, because the owners had supported Obama’s campaign.

Secret Service gone wild:  Agents hiring hookers in Columbia, a fence jumper penetrating the White House, and tipsy Secret Service officials driving their car into a security barrier.

Shutdown theater:  Obama hit the American people hard during the great government shutdown crisis of 2013, doing everything he could to make American citizens feel maximum pain – from using “Barry-cades” to keep war veterans away from their memorials, to releasing illegal alien criminals from detention centers.

Obamacare Losers

obamacare-cure

Dec. 31, 2016:  One day before the new policy was to take effect, a federal judge issued a court order barring enforcement of an Obama administration policy requiring health insurance policies cover transgender and abortion procedures.

The judge said the plaintiffs were likely to prevail in court, because the rule would “require them to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender transitions and abortions, regardless of their contrary religious beliefs or medical judgment.”

The same judge issued a similar court order in August blocking a separate Obama administration rule requiring public schools to allow transgender students to use restrooms of their choice.

Carolers save at least nine babies from extermination

nativity

In California, three couples changed their minds about aborting after listening to pro-lifers sing Christmas carols outside an abortion facility in San Bernadino.

In Florida, six infants’ lives were saved at three different abortion facilities where pro-lifers sang carols.

Carolers reported:

  • One couple came out and told us, “We’re not doing it.”
  • A couple came out and said, “It was because of your caroling that we decided to keep our baby.”
  • We were singing ‘Silent Night’ outside of an abortion clinic when a young woman came out, approached one of our carolers, and said that our singing made her think about Mary and Baby Jesus and she just couldn’t go through with her abortion.

Immature Snowflake

I watched the interview and was really dumbfounded that someone so smart could be so lacking in common sense.

Bittle’s gripe basically is that Trump and his people have bigger pulpits than he does and loads more power to make their policies become realities for America and that’s SO NOT FAIR!

He is editor of something that he also writes for.  IMHO, he already has a pulpit that is appropriate to his station in life. He’s a student, for crying out loud!  Donald Trump is about 50 years older and won a national election.

But instead of pulling up his big boy panties and trying to understand why his side lost or, I don’t know, trying to understand what the opposition actually believes and thinking about how maybe we’re right, this immature twat promotes civil disobedience to try and force the opposition leadership to do things his way.

Then, when Carlson calls him out on it, he claims he was just joking. Uh … no. Carlson gave Bittle a chance to make his case on a very highly rated t.v. news show. Sadly, the only thing he accomplished was to show us what a rotten job his parents did of raising him.
 
What do you want to bet he’s got a closet full of Participation Trophies at home?

Pelosi resorts to epic levels of projection about O’care

2017_01-02-pelosi-projecting

Tweeters snarked:

  • I find that really hard to believe…especially the 2nd part.
  • You just described what Obamacare has done for the last half decade.
  • We’ll just have to repeal the bill to find out what’s in the new one, won’t we?
  • Peoples’ costs already increased, dumbass. Premiums doubled and deductibles doubled.
  • If there’s ever a picture in the dictionary under “projection”, it should be Pelosi’s.
  • Heh. I think we’re already there. Democrats did that all by themselves, pumpkin.
  • Shh! Don’t tell her!
  • This line of attack worked so well for 8 years, Nance … please keep it up. The GOP can always use more seats.
  • PLEASE make Nancy the face of Dem efforts to obstruct the repeal and replacement of Obamacare. Thanks!

About John McCain

We all know him.War hero,married to a fabulously wealthy beer heiress,going into his 30th year as a US senator.A favorite on the Sunday talk show circuit,owing to his zeal in stabbing his fellow republicans in the back.his career has been based solely on the years he spent as a POW during the VietNam war.He lost a close primary to George W. Bush in 2000,which put him next in line for a presidential run based on the GOPe hierarchy.We will never know how he would have fared against a previously unknown mulatto from Illinois who had never worked for anything in his life.He seemed more concerned with looking gentlemanly and barely said a negative thing about a community organizer who was plainly the most radical person ever to run for the office.
But unless you’ve been a political junkie for a lot of years you may not be aware of how completely corrupt and willing he is to throw anybody under the bus to save his cushy job.After bowing down and handing the presidency to the Magic Negro he ran for his next term against a talk show host,J.D.Hayworth and spent more than $4 million viciously attacking him.NOBODY! can get his seat from him.He has the money,the power and the party backing to be an incumbent as long as he wishes.
THE KEATING FIVE
McCain: The Most Reprehensible of the Keating Five
You’re John McCain, a fallen hero who wanted to become president so desperately that you sold yourself to Charlie Keating, the wealthy con man who bears such an incredible resemblance to The Joker.


Obviously, Keating thought you could make it to the White House, too.
He poured $112,000 into your political campaigns. He became your friend. He threw fund raisers in your honor. He even made a sweet shopping-center investment deal for your wife, Cindy. Your father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was cut in on the deal, too.
Nothing was too good for you. Why not? Keating saw you as a prime investment that would pay off in the future.
DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR????
Since Keating’s collapse, you find yourself doing obscene things to save yourself from the Senate Ethics Committee’s investigation. As a matter of course, you engage in backbiting behavior that will turn you into an outcast in the Senate if you do survive.
When the reporters fail to print your tips quickly enough–as in the case of your tip on Michigan Senator Donald Riegle–you call them back and remind them how important it is to get that information in the newspapers.
Those who survive will be the sociopaths who can tell a lie with the most sincere, straight face. You are especially adept at this.
On Sunday, Senators Dennis DeConcini, Alan Cranston, and Riegle refused offers to appear on the Brinkley show. What must we make of that?
There you sat with Glenn, both sweating before the cameras, waiting to answer questions: two badly tarnished American icons.

No one forgets that Glenn was the first American astronaut to orbit the Earth. You won’t let anyone forget that you were a prisoner of war. But you have played that tune too long. By now your constant reminders about your war record make you seem like a modern version of Arthur Miller’s tragic failure Willy Loman.

Clearly, both you and Glenn sold your fame for Charles Keating’s money.
Just keep telling everyone that it was your wife’s money invested in that shopping center with Keating and that you knew nothing about it.
You sought out a master criminal like Keating and became his friend. Now you’ve discarded him. It shouldn’t be surprising that you are now in the process of selling out your senatorial accomplices.

You’re John McCain, clearly the guiltiest, most culpable and reprehensible of the Keating Five. But you know the power of television and you realize this is the only way you can possibly save your political career.
THIS MAN IS EVERY BIT A CORRUPT LIAR AS HIS FRIENDS THE DEMOCRATS.

The Daily Dish

Today’s task is to cull the articles I’ve bookmarked over the past few days, pick out the ones that are informative, inspirational,thought-provoking and socially significant. After I delete those I’ll have the normal mindless drivel you’ve come to expect from me.

Obama could use 5 minute window to FORCE SCOTUS PICK Garland
Obama has one last chance to force his pick for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, on to the highest court in the land. Obama will have a 5 minute window known as “intersession recess” when he can force the move.
The liberal New Republic believes that Obama should put Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court during this intersession recess although they state: “Based on everything we know about Obama’s temperament and politics, he won’t resort to this.”
Most conservatives would say that based on everything we know about Obama’s temperament and politics he is highly likely to resort to this.

IT IS ALMOST CERTAIN HE’LL TRY THIS. HE ACTS LIKE THE SPOILED BRAT WHO DIDN’T GET EVERYTHING HE WANTED FOR CHRISTMAS SO HE’S SETTING ABOUT BREAKING EVERYBODY ELSE’S STUFF SO THEY CAN’T ENJOY IT.

[CtH: GREAT analogy, Pete.  That’s exactly what he’s acting like!]

Frank Luntz: Obama on a ‘FU Tour,’ Trying to ‘Settle Scores’ With Republicans

Check Out The Jaw-Dropping New Soda Tax in Philadelphia

[CtH:  The new sugary drinks “tax is higher than the one on alcoholic beverages.”  Cuz, yeah, THAT totally makes sense.  I’m so sure sugar is worse for you than alcohol.  NOT.]

YOU WONDER WHY PENNSYLVANIA WENT REPUBLICAN?

Sean Spicer: Trump to ‘Repeal a Lot’ of Obama’s Actions on Day One
In an interview with ABC’s “This Week”, Trump’s incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that President-elect Donald Trump plans to repeal a lot of President Barack Obama’s executive actions in his first day in office.
Spicer said that the Trump administration will immediately “repeal a lot of the regulations and actions that have been taken by this administration over the last eight years that have hampered both economic growth and job creation.”

Obama will give a valedictory speech in Chicago in attempt to save ‘Obamacare’ as Republicans plot to repeal it

Obama will travel to the Capitol on Wednesday morning for the meeting with House and Senate Democrats, according to an invitation sent to lawmakers.  The White House is casting it as an effort to unite Democrats behind a plan to protect the law, known as the Affordable Care Act. Obama also plans a major valedictory speech in Chicago, his hometown, shortly before his presidency ends.

[CtH: I had lab work today at the hospital, where CNN was blatting in the waiting room.  The talking heads were hyperventilating about Trump’s eeeeeeeeevil plan to sabotage Obamacare. I sat there wondering if they’d had even the slightest concern back in 2009 about what negative effects it might have or about the totally bogus way the Democrats passed it … in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve and without a single Republican vote?  I can’t say for sure, but my guess is they did not.]

Schumer: “Democrats Will Resist Trump’s Picks Vehemently!”
TRANSLATION: WE’RE GOING TO BE THE SAME HATEFUL, DESTRUCTIVE PRICKS WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN
According to the report, Schumer told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he will target Trump’s pick for the head of State, Sen. Jeff Sessions for head of the Justice Department, and two other notable appointees.
Democrats will also target picks for the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, Treasury and the Environmental Protection Agency.

[CtH: And the MSM will self-righteously depict every accusation as totally legit, just like they did back when Anita Hill was the Democrat Lying Shill trying to sabotage Clarence Thomas.]

Kucinich: Obama Hung Democrats Out to Dry for Past Eight Years

The Daily Beast‘s Jackie Kucinich said to CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson on Sunday that it would be interesting to see what kind of reception President Obama will receive when he meets congressional Democrats next week, adding that the president has hung his party “out to dry” during his time in the White House.

[CtH: I remember hearing a story some years ago about a meeting of top Democrat leaders in Congress.  Obama was “there” via conference call, but reportedly, as he yammered on and on the way he does, someone (I think it was Pelosi) hit MUTE!  Then the continued their meeting.]

Democrats prepare for early ‘act of cowardice’ with GOP attempt to repeal Obamacare
house_democrats_health_care_92205-jpg-cc64f_c0-169-4047-2528_s885x516
QUOTH THE FOUR-TERM MINORITY LEADER
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, preparing for her fourth straight Congress in the minority — she lost her speakership in 2010, in an anti-Obamacare backlash — now says it’s the GOP that will pay a political price if it moves to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. “You break it, you own it,” the California Democrat said.

Alabama band to march at inauguration, igniting controversy
talladega%20college%20band%20web_1483394841641_15947607_ver1_0GOOD ON THEM
The marching band of Alabama’s oldest private, historically black liberal arts college has accepted an invitation to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural parade, organizers said.
“After how black people were treated at Trump’s rallies, you’re going to go and shuck and jive down Pennsylvania Avenue? For what?” Seinya SamForay said in an interview. “What they did is a slap in the face to other black universities.”

HOW WERE BLACK PEOPLE TREATED AT TRUMP RALLIES? WITH A HELL OF A LOT MORE RESPECT THAN TRUMP SUPPORTERS WHO WERE ROUTINELY ASSAULTED BY YOUR HATEFUL RACIST BRETHREN.

SO MANY Trump Hate Hoaxes By Deranged Liberal Fascists – The Complete Video
The left has made it a sport to fake hate crimes.  And since the historic November election hate hoaxes are a dime a dozen.
There have been at least 17 faked hate crimes NOT committed by Trump supporters since the November election.
What should be noted is that there were 2,000 verified hate crimes against Trump supporters since the election.
So we all know where the real hate, violence and intolerance exist.

The First Family rung in 2017 at their Kailua vacation rental and spent the night before enjoying a luau
Downbeat-looking Sasha and Malia return from Hawaii with their parents after last family vacation on Air Force One.  The Obamas departed Hawaii around 10pm on Sunday and arrived Monday at Andrews Air Force Base.  Obama spent his last day on the island visiting his grandfather’s grave and spending time at the beach.

JUST $298 FOR THE BAG MALARIA IS TOTING. A WONDERFUL BARGAIN.

Melania Trump Rocked a Black Dolce & Gabbana Minidress for New Year’s Eve
WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN FIRST LADIES
On its site, the brand described the dress as being made of virgin wool and spandex. It has bows on each strap, which are embellished with jewels and a fitted silhouette that hits a few inches below the knee. The dress retails for $2,995.

TRUMP PAID FOR IT WITH HIS OWN MONEY … BIG DIFFERENCE.

[CtH: Actually, the real difference is that Trump made his dough creating jobs, while Obama became a multi-millionaire largely due to sale of his autobiography that he probably didn’t write.  I’m fairly certain the taxpayers never had to pay for Michelle’s wardrobe.  That’s probably not true of her staff’s salaries and benefits, which include a hairdresser and makeup artist.  But the clothes themselves, no.]

[CtH: Wow … Michelle’s dress is truly heinous.  Hillary had a couple of expensive designer outfits during the campaign that were butt ugly too.  What’s with their lack of taste?  Both of them can afford to buy beautiful clothes by designers who know how to make a woman look her best.  So why do they shop with designers whose outfits are ugly and unflattering to their figures?]

[CtH: While Dearest and I were enjoying our breakfast date at the cute cafe in the hospital (following my overnight fast for tests), the Garden Club ladies showed up to take down all the beautiful decorations they’d put up for the holidays.  I just had to go thank them.  They’re all volunteers and those decorations had cheered me up today while I was feeling so hungry and thirsty and uncomfortable getting all those tests done.  I’m glad I got there before they came down. Tomorrow would’ve been too late.]
