Tag Archives: Obama’s lies
Among Obama’s howlers in his climate conference speech is this: “Fourteen of the fifteen warmest years on record have occurred since the year 2000 — and 2015 is on pace to be the warmest year of all.”
We put satellites into space to provide a more accurate measure of global temperature. These data show that, despite increasing amounts of man-made CO2, average global temperatures have been remarkably stable since 1998.
Please note that none of the climatologists is Bill Nye. “The Science Guy” may be one of the Left’s favorite climate alarmist television celebrities, but his only genuine science credential is a B.S. in mechanical engineering.
Obama also said: “This summer, I saw the effects of climate change firsthand in our northernmost state, Alaska.”
Wait, what? You saw signs of SUMMER in Alaska?! Oh noes! ::snort:: My kids live in Alaska. They assure me that while it does get REALLY cold there in the winter, it also gets hot enough for shorts and flip flops in the summer.
Please note my source for this is the Washington Post, one of Obama’s staunch supporters!
A recent Pew Poll found 52% of Americans favor gun rights. 46% said they favor gun control legislation.
Lies My President Told Me [6:27]
If you don’t know how each of these is a lie, google.
For the record, I think his 2008 statement was mega stupid. People need vacations if they’re going to stay sharp. I think he said it, not because he intended to work 24-7, but because the Left was making a big hairy deal out of how many days Dubya had spent at his ranch in Texas.
Biiiiig difference, folks, is that once the ranch was established as a presidential retreat (comms, security), it didn’t cost anything extra for him to go there. But when Obama goes on vacation, they have to pull out all the stops every single time … security scouting, renting facilities for his family and his entire team, flying his motorcade vehicles to and from, setting up the comms a president has to have. Then, there are all the times that Her Highness has decided she can’t deal with flying on the same plane as him, so she demands a separate flight … which we pay for.
As for golf … Dubya quit playing golf because we were at war and he didn’t feel right about bereaved family members seeing him on the links. The Left scorned this decision, because “big deal, who cares if he does or doesn’t play golf?” But now that Obama plays as often as possible … sometimes causing tremendous inconvenience to others* … the Left swoons about how great golf is for helping a president relax from the stresses of his big, important job.
*One of Obama’s games forced a couple to rearrange their wedding plans. Another forced military members to abandon their families on Christmas day. What can I conclude from this except that he is both a liar and a self-centered bastard?
2008: Candidate Obama says he would not take vacations [2:21]
The no vacay video is a small clip from the hour long interview with New York Times columnist Bob Herbert – “A Conversation with Barack Obama: Audacity of Hope” – http://ow.ly/dKNnB.
The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Chairman says the IRS absolutely singled out conservative tax-exempt groups.
At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for surveillance and audits. Of these, 83% chosen for surveillance were right-leaning while fully 100% of the groups selected for audits were right-leaning.
But President Obama said there is not ‘even a smidgen of corruption’ in IRS.
Holy crap. Obama was NEAR … even IN my personal space yesterday. Ew. Ew. Ew. His bus-ocade drove down a road I know well; he even did a townhall at my alma mater …. where I hear he warned against “the GOP shutting down the government.”
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Cuz it’s like totally the Party of the People who are NOT in Power that has spent us into oblivion. What a schmuck.
Between his preaching … I mean, speaking … engagements in Syracuse (Thursday evening) and Binghamton (Friday noon), his PR liars put out the utterly absurd tale that he saw some kids playing soccer and spontaneously asked to stop so he could kick the ball around.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Cuz it’s like totally normal for the Secret Service to allow the president to just say “stop the car!” Not.
Channel 9 reported the “spontaneous” lie, along with getting the date wrong. ::eyesrolling:: See https://polination.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/and-you-watch-msnbc-nbc-because-why-exactly/ for the MSM’s map of Obama’s bus tour along with where these cities actually are … and have been for a couple hundred years give or take.
Now … I’ll grant you this. The stop in Tully was not on his public schedule, but neither was anything else for Friday morning. Clearly, he spent the night somewhere, got up, ate, left, etc. I get the point of not telling the whole world where he is at every moment. It wouldn’t be safe.
Plus there’s the sticky problem of announcing BusØbama’s actual route … you know, like they did last time? When mean-spirited racists stood on the roadside holding politically incorrect signs, pics of which are STILL floating around the interwebs. Can’t have that happen again, right? Or is it left ….
What I object to about his visit to Tully is the supremely stupid LIE that it was “spontaneous.” Let’s just overlook for a skinny minute that the Secret Service carries guns and doesn’t really answer to President “I’d rather play cards” Pantywaist anyhow. So he can’t order them to make a sudden change in schedule. Let’s just look at three little factoids I found easily on the net:
A. There was no practice scheduled, yet somehow BOTH Varsity teams were waiting at the field to shake his hand and laugh at his jokes.
B. When you’re driving from Syracuse to Binghamton, you take Rte 81 South. Even if there was a practice going on, nobody could have seen it half a mile away, from a vehicle moving south, at speed, on the FAR side of a divided highway.
C. And even if someone did see a practice (that was not scheduled) from a distance (that was absurd), the reality of a presidential motorcade suddenly deciding to take the next exit and backtrack over unplanned and unfamiliar roads is just beyond ridiculous.
Sooooooooo … add one more lie to Øbama’s list. (Dearest speculates that a big donor called in a favor and they made it “spontaneous” to avoid pissing off other donors and to prevent Mean People from showing up with signs and cameras. Sounds about right.)
On the plus side, one of the photos WH photographer Pete Sousa sent out from the not-spontaneous visit sparked a little captioning fun at Twitchy.
- On his last leg
- He’s kicking his own @$$ over the whole Egypt thing
- You didn’t kick that
- Prancersize meets soccer
- Ummm…uhhhh…ummm…uhhhhh…Can we move these goal posts as well?
- FINALLY! There’s that transparency about which we’ve been hearing so much.
- Bend it like Urkel
- OMG, he kicks like a girl too!
- Kicking phony scandals down the road
- Empty chair meets empty net
- Is that one of Boehner’s?
- Hop and Change
- Doctors accused of performing unnecessary amputations get their revenge
And last but definitely not least, the one that got spit on my monitor:
- Without teleprompter, Obama stumped
- VIDEO of BHO greeting Tully Varsity Boys Soccer Team http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50153574n
ABC is reporting that they have obtained copies of twelve sequential White House emails that PROVE the White House edited out politically problematic information from the Benghazi talking points.
First is the original draft composed by the CIA.
Third is the last of at least TEN drafts coordinated by the Obama White House and the Clinton State Department that Obama’s Press Secretary Jay Carney falsely claimed was the ONLY change made by them.
The final, heavily edited version was distributed to Congress and Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after the attack.
ABC Report: CIA head Petraeus was disgusted by revised talking points
What we know for sure:
- President Obama swore the attack was triggered by a YouTube video.
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton swore the attack was triggered by a YouTube video.
- UN Ambassador Susan Rice swore the attack was triggered by a YouTube video.
- White House Press Secretary Jay Carney swore the attack was triggered by a YouTube video.
- There was no YouTube video protest.
- Benghazi was an extremist Muslim terrorist attack from the get go.
- The Obama White House and the Clinton State Department knew it from the beginning.
- President Obama and Hillary Clinton fabricated the video claim to cover their political backsides.
The Left-Stream Media may be waking up from their Obama Kool-aid stupor. This surprising report from The New Yorker:
“For a long time, it seemed like the idea of a coverup was just a Republican obsession. But now there is something to it.”
Obama Caught in Bald-Faced Lie on White House Sequester [1:29]
Sequester cuts kicked in March 1 and the Obamas are using it as an excuse to cancel White House activities they don’t much care for. For example, they don’t like having people trooping through “their” digs, so White House tours were all canceled, even the school tours that had already been approved and scheduled for spring break trips.
The Obamas themselves all took spring break vacays, natch. Barack went to Florida to golf. Malia and Sasha went to the Bahamas with school chums, then met up with Michelle in Idaho to ski. It was their second ski trip of 2013.
The Obamas also lurve Lurve LURVE celebrities, so in the first half of April, they’ve also managed to scrape up a few bucks to enjoy:
- a White House reception for the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and major league soccer champs LA Galaxy,
- security and motorcade for Barack to play golf two weekends in a row,
- security and motorcade so Barack could attend the Syracuse-Marquette NCAA tournament basketball game at the Verizon Center and schmooze with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III,
- a “42 Film Workshop” with Harrison Ford in the State Dining Room,
- an exclusive viewing of “42” with the film’s cast and crew in the White House theater, and
- an East Room celebration of Memphis soul music, with performances by stars like Justin Timberlake and Queen Latifah.
One previously scheduled annual event has been canceled for this month … allegedly due to a “lack of funds.”
- The annual White House reception for noted Jewish-Americans in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month.
Meanwhile, Israel came to a halt for two minutes to honor Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust.
