There was so much hope in January 2009 when Barack Obama took office.
Here was the first black president of the United States, promising to be a
leader for all Americans, to halt the rise of the oceans and to be the
most transparent administration ever. Even black Americans were saying the
Civil War was finally over.
Unfortunately for America, it didn’t turn out that way. As more and more
evidence is revealed daily on the evening news, it is now very clear the
Obama administration was the most corrupt presidency in the history of the
As Mr. Obama’s favorite, President Abraham Lincoln, warned us, the most
dangerous threats can come from domestic enemies.
First of all, that bit about being a leader for all Americans,
color-blind if you will, was a tall tale. Mr. Obama never missed an
opportunity to sow racial divide. During his term in the Oval Office,
racial relations literally went off the cliff. Mr. Obama and first lady
Michelle promoted the false narrative that white America was literally
guilty of hunting down blacks with glee. They whipped up resentment in
minority communities against the police, even though a Harvard study found
that blacks are no more likely to be killed by police than whites. But the
racial divisions, as painful and heartbreaking as they are, were not the
worst of it.
The abuse of power started to become clear when it was revealed the
Internal Revenue Service was biased against conservatives. I still don’t
understand why that woman is not in jail. She sat there and lied to the
American people and to Congress with no accountability.
Mr. Obama used the agencies, and the awesome power of the federal
government, against his political enemies. He used the power of the state
against those he didn’t like. This was full-on banana republic dictator
kind of stuff.
The negligence at Veterans’ Affairs, the “stimulus bill” that was simply
a redistribution to unions (those “shovel ready projects” weren’t so
shovel ready after all), the sale of uranium to the Russians, the lies
about Benghazi, the Clinton email scandal that was not prosecuted, the
appeasement of the Iranians — even sending billions in cash in the middle
of the night and bragging about how they lied to the American press and
public, the use of financial penalties to fund leftist causes, the use of
the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) to take property from
Americans, on, and on, and on. I literally could go on forever.
However, the coup-de-grace is what we are now learning about the 2016
election and the criminal spying on the Trump campaign.
The president of the United States was set up. Mr. Trump is exactly
right. The weaponization of our intelligence and security services has
damaged their reputation for generations, and the rule of law, to which
this great nation is so committed, has been irreparably damaged as well.
I’ve said it before, the Obama administration was nothing more than
highly organized crime.
Justice will be served. It may take a while, but the truth will continue
to come out.
It’s a shame the administration of the first black president was also the
most corrupt. Such a lost opportunity to better this great country.
It’s not that hard to understand. Still, it’s difficult to accept.
It shouldn’t happen here.
Obama was elected for two reasons. First was the color of his skin, the
first black U.S. President, and history was made. The second was
that the America haters inside and outside of this country recognized that
the timing was right for them to destroy America and he was the perfect
“tool” for them to use to do it.
Last week I wrote about Hillary’s life of corruption and that she had
never been charged with a crime. Obama also has a history of corruption,
has never been charged with a crime, will never be charged with a crime,
and was elected to be President twice. Obama has one other thing
that Hillary does not have. Hillary does not care about anything but money
and power. Obama, in addition to an obsession with money and power,
absolutely hates America and everything about it. This last thing is what
makes him the perfect “tool” for the people who are intent on destroying
America, and as noted above the timing was right.
Under Obama we have become so politically correct (PC) we cannot
function, our economy is destroyed, our allies do not trust us, our
enemies laugh at us and taunt us, our government functions at a minimal
level at best, lawlessness is rampant, especially in many of our major
cities and even in most federal government agencies, and our state of
readiness militarily is at an all-time low.
The America haters have actually been steadily chipping away at the very
fabric of American life for about 50 years. All their efforts have been
carefully orchestrated with time on their side. They were perfectly willing
to experience a minor setback from time to time as long as they got what
they wanted in the end. And then along came Obama, an America hating man
totally without a conscience. Everything he has done as an adult confirms
Let’s begin with Obama’s college years. Where are his college records?
Why are they sealed? What are they hiding? Who spends a fortune (of other
people’s money) having their college records sealed and keeping them
After college Obama claims that he was a Constitutional law professor. In
fact, he was only a part-time lecturer who spent most of his time writing
a book about himself.
Obama was a Saul Alinsky disciple and close friends with Bill Ayers. Some
sources say that it was Bill Ayers who actually made Obama’s book readable
and ready to be published while Obama became a community organizer. Saul
Alinsky was the person responsible for creating the destructive community
organizer movement in America. Bill Ayers was a member of the radical
”Weather Underground” group in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
He went underground to escape prosecution for his part in several
terrorist bombings the group did, re-emerged and became a tenured college
During all his time in Chicago after college, Obama sat in Reverend
Jeremiah Wright’s extremely radical, “God Damn America” church almost
Obama’s first step into politics was when he “finagled” an Illinois
Senate seat where he did very little except plan his next move to the U.S.
After Obama made it to the U.S. Senate, he again did very little except
plan his Presidential run. When he did make a speech or vote it was always
an anti-Bush media show.
During Obama’s first Presidential run every America hater pilled on and
threw truckloads of money at him. And the main stream media
enthusiastically signed on. “Fundamentally Change America” became their
Holy Grail. Ethics, rules, facts or laws were not to be an impediment in
As soon as he was elected Obama openly displayed a level of arrogance
that is not fitting to the office of the President of the United States of
America. During his first term, in one of his extremely rare bi-partisan
white house meetings Obama said to John McCain, “elections have
consequences, I won”. Immediately after his second election he moved from
“fundamentally changing America” to “we are going to punish our enemies
and reward our friends”.
After Obama was sworn into his promised “most transparent administration
in history”, the administration became the most secretive and blatantly
corrupt administration in history.
Obama appointed total sycophants to every presidentially appointed
position in the Federal Government, preferably as America hating and
lacking in ethics as he was. He even created some new positions like a lot
of new Whitehouse Czars. Some of the Obama administration’s appointments
have actually been members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Many state and local
governments and Democratic Party organizations immediately followed
Obama’s lead (Baltimore).
Throughout his two terms Obama continued to appoint people who he could
depend on to blindly carry out his agenda, including illegal recess
appointments. Additionally there is no end to the budgets, maximum
allowable salaries and even bonuses for everyone who successfully plays
Obama’s game (VA and IRS are examples). If anyone fails to publicly and
blindly do what Obama wants they are “out” instantly. If anyone displeases
Obama he does not hesitate to throw them “under the buss”. And God help a
“whistle blower” no matter what the situation, in spite of specific
Federal laws protecting them.
As President nothing is beneath Obama or his supporters in their efforts
to destroy America. The list of “scandals” during Obama’s two terms is
actually many pages long. Below is a brief explanation of some of the most
corrupt Obama Administration actions.
A totally agenda driven and corrupt DOJ was created shortly after Obama
began his first term. This was critical for the Obama Administration to do
as it pleased with no fear of being questioned, let along anyone being
charged with wrong doing. This began with the blatant voter intimidation convictions
against the Philadelphia Black Panthers being thrown out by Eric Holder.
Obamacare was illegally implemented and changed with multiple illegal
”Fast and Furious” was an illegal, poorly conceived, poorly managed,
extremely costly, secret operation run by the DOJ and BATF. It was
designed to discredit Federally Licensed Firearms dealers in order to set
up an opportunity to take the first steps to destroy the 2nd
The IRS illegally targeting conservative groups was a deliberate attack
on the 1st Amendment. This massive and lengthy operation was a
calculated and successful attempt to dramatically
influence Obama’s re-election.
“Fast and Furious” and the IRS targeting operation were both orchestrated
and covered up at the highest levels of the Obama Administration,
especially at the DOJ. Eric Holder repeatedly lied to Congress about both,
changed his “story” on multiple occasions and refused to turn over
relevant documents. In fact he was so arrogant and dishonest in his
interactions with Congress that he was charged with contempt (which had no
effect on him since he is the chief law enforcement officer in America).
Obama attempted to protect Holder and various records about these illegal
activities with “executive orders” (which have been ruled illegal).
Operation “Choke Point” was another DOJ operation that was launched
secretly using bank regulators to try and force banks to refuse to do
business with industries the Obama Administration did not like. Firearm,
coal and precious metals businesses were their specific targets. The
effort was intended to shut down these industries by denying them banking
services. Another agenda driven attack on the 1st and 2nd
During his 1st term Obama began to establish a Federal police
force (armed police that report to the Federal Government). They are armed
and their uniforms and vehicles have “Federal Police” identification.
Government agencies like the IRS are spending millions of dollars on guns
and ammunition and designating employees who can become part of a Federal
police force. The Federal Reserve refers to its security staff as Federal
Reserve Bank Police. Their uniform I.D. is “FRB Police”.
During Obama’s 1st term in office his administration spent
untold millions of dollars buying up and stock piling ammunition. This was
a twofold operation. One objective was to have an unlimited supply of
ammunition for the “Federal Police”. The second was to prevent U.S.
Citizens from stock piling ammunition. For many months ammunition dealers
were limiting the amount of ammunition a customer could buy (if they had
any stock at all of some calibers). The Obama Administration also stopped
selling surplus military ammunition to dealers and even stopped selling
used bullet brass to bullet manufacturers to prevent them from producing
The Obama Administration’s auto industry” take over” was another massive
and illegal operation. It openly violated a number of long standing
Federal and state trade and DMV laws. They even went so far as deciding
which dealers were terminated, without proper notice, and who got to keep
dealerships based on their political affiliations and especially who
supported and donated to Obama’s campaign. They literally created illegal
monopolies for certain brands in some large geographic areas. Terminated
dealerships were left with new vehicles on their lots that they could not
legally sell to the public. And of course the unions were protected from
being negatively financially impacted at the expense of secured lenders.
When the Inspector General for the Department of Agriculture found that
hundreds of “Food Stamp” vendors were committing massive fraud the
investigation was shut down with no action taken.
After Obama’s re-election the “Free Cell Phone” program was expanded by
over a $100,000,000 with distribution contracts going to big Obama donors.
Under the Obama Administration “Legal Immigration” has basically been
turned into a massive graft and corruption program to expand the
Democratic donor and voter base.
Under Obama Illegal Immigration has been mismanaged and corrupted so it
can be used as a political wedge issue by the Democrats to expand their
donor and voter base.
Based on immigration alone you need over 100,000 net new jobs each month
for the unemployment rate to stay the same. In May we only had 38,000 net
new jobs yet the Obama Administration proudly announced that the
unemployment rate fell from 5 to 4.7 percent!
Under Obama our economy has been destroyed. The 1st quarter
GDP growth rate was only .005 (one half of one percent). We need a minimum
of 3 percent to meet America’s expanding needs.
Our national debt is about to reach an inconceivable level of 20 trillion
dollars ($20,000,000,000,000)! At some point in time we will not be able
to pay the interest on this debt, let alone pay it off!
The “climate change fantasy” is an integral part of Obama’s corrupt
administration. Billions of dollars were illegally given to green energy
projects that failed immediately but benefited big donors, insider trading
on green energy projects was rampant, and the EPA and other Government
agencies took illegal steps to hurt the coal, oil and gas industries. And
now the DOJ is planning to bring federal charges against “climate change
deniers” using the Rico organized crime statues!
Under Obama we now have the worst level of national defense we have had
in decades (even worse than it was under Bill Clinton). Every branch of
our military is understaffed, underequipped, and run by political
ideologies at every level. All the career patriotic warriors have been
forced out from the top Generals to the line officers and senior NCOs.
Benghazi. While men were dying there was a meeting/conference call, which
Obama did not participate in, with half the meeting time dedicated to
developing the video story. NOT a single piece of military equipment moved
while the brave men were fighting and dying except for one, hours into the
battle, and it went to Tripoli, not Benghazi. The only help they got was a
group of CIA folks who took it upon their selves to basically commander a
plane in Tripoli to get Benghazi during the fight at the Annex (one of
them was killed). BUT IT WAS ONLY 51 DAYS TO Obama’s RE-ELECTION AND HE
HAD SINGLEHANDEDLY DEFEATED TERRIOSM….
As noted above this is only a partial list. Do not forget the Iran deal,
Gitmo, the Bergdahl trade, and other Obama Administration actions that
have damaged America and put us at increased risk of attack here and
The real shame in all this is that it was all coldly calculated and
deliberately executed with a compliant Congress, including rhino
President Obama and
his mouthpieces have embarked on a bizarre scheme to hypnotize America
into forgetting the many scandals of his presidency. They seem to
think that intoning “this administration hasn’t had a scandal” over
and over again
will make history disappear. It’s the lamest Jedi Mind Trick ever, and
is being pushed on people who know Star Wars is just a movie.
Here’s a short list of the many
scandals Team Obama thinks it can make America forget:
The great “stimulus” heist: Obama
seems to think nobody will remember he grabbed almost a trillion
dollars for “stimulus” spending, created virtually zero private-sector
jobs with it, allowed a great deal of the money to vanish into thin air, and spent the rest of his
presidency complaining that he needed hundreds of billions more to
repair roads and bridges.
Vast sums of taxpayer money were wasted on foolish projects that came close to the Keynesian economic
satire of hiring some people to dig holes, and others to fill them in.
Obama added insult to injury by appointing Vice President Joe Biden as
the “sheriff” who would supposedly find all that missing
Americans mostly ended up footing the
bill for was an army of government
jobs, and a lavish
network of slush funds
for the Democratic Party and its union allies. We’re supposed to
forget about all that because years later, Obama’s weak economy
finally dragged itself to something like normal “official” employment
levels… with the U.S. national debt doubled,
and our workforce
to Carter-era lows. Sorry, Democrats, but that’s more than just failed
policy. It’s one of the worst government-spending scandals in our
history. Democrats will howl to the moon over far, far smaller abuses
of taxpayer money during the Trump administration, should any occur.
Operation Fast and Furious: Obama
partisans seem to think any given example of abuse or ineptitude by
their man stopped being a “scandal” the moment it seemed clear he
wouldn’t be impeached over it. Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama
administration’s insane program to use American gun dealers and straw
purchasers to arm Mexican drug lords,
is a scandal with a huge body count, prominently including Border
Patrol Agent Brian Terry
and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata,
plus hundreds of Mexican citizens. Agent Terry’s family certainly thinks
it qualifies as a scandal.
It is difficult to imagine any
Republican administration surviving anything remotely close to Fast
and Furious. The media would have dogged a Republican president
without respite, especially when it became clear his Attorney General
was putting political spin ahead of accountability and the safety of
the American people. Remember, AG Eric Holder escaped perjury charges
by claiming he didn’t know what his own subordinates were doing – a
pioneering, but sadly not unique, example of an Obama official using
his or her incompetenceas a defense.
For years afterward, we would hear some version of “I’m not a crook,
I’m just completely inept” everywhere from the Department of Health
and Human Services to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
But this was Barack Obama, so the media
downplayed Fast and Furious news… to the point where viewers of NBC
News learned about the scandal for the first time when Holder was on the
verge of being held in contempt by Congress for it.
The relatively benign
explanation for the
astounding Fast and Furious scandal is that Obama’s Justice Department
wanted to release guns into the Mexican wild, like so many
radio-tagged antelope on a nature show, and follow them to arrest the
big fish of organized crime. (In case you were wondering, no, the guns
didn’t actually have radio tags in them – that was tried in
the much smaller, and utterly disastrous, Bush-era
program Obama’s team used
as a model for their vastly larger and more
careless program.) This
explanation becomes more difficult to believe, the more
you know about how
careless the program was, and how abruptly it was shut down after
Agent Terry’s death.
The more sinister take on Fast and
Furious is that the Obama administration wanted to create gun crimes
in Mexico so they could complain about lax regulations on American gun
sales – “for the purposes of creating a narrative that they could use
in America to try and thwart our Second Amendment constitutional
rights,” as Andrew
Breitbart put it during a
No matter which interpretation you
subscribe to, or how much you think Barack Obama knew about the
program when he made scurrilous claims of executive privilege to shut down investigations, it’s an insult
to a large number of murder victims to claim it wasn’t a scandal.
Unfortunately, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and
Explosives hasn’t learned as much
from the OFF debacle as we might have hoped.
Incidentally, the Border Patrol named a
station in southern Arizona in Agent Brian Terry’s honor. On New
Year’s Eve, persons unknown fired rifle shots
at a Border Patrol vehicle near the station.
Eric Holder held in contempt of Congress: This
was a result of Operation Fast and Furious, but it merits distinction
as a separate scandal in its own right. Holder was the first sitting
member of a president’s cabinet in the history of the United States to
in contempt of Congress.
Of course, Democrats closed ranks
behind Holder, the White House protected him, and the media allowed
Holder to spin the contempt vote as mere “political theater.” In
reality, it was a difficult step that responsible members of Congress
didn’t want to take, and it was fully justified by Holder’s
disgraceful conduct in the Fast and Furious investigation. No
reasonable person could possibly review the way OFF was handled and
conclude it was an example of transparency and accountability.
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 “we need to pass it
to find out what’s in it” dereliction of Congressional duty.
ObamaCare is a scam, pure and simple –
sold on false pretenses by people who knew
it wasn’t going to work
the way they promised. It doesn’t feel right to dismiss it as a
“failed” scheme when so much of the failure
was intentional. The bill was so sloppily crafted that
Democrats were basically signing blank sheets of paper when they
rushed it through Congress in a foul-smelling cloud of back-room
deals. ObamaCare’s designers precipitated a constitutional crisis by
forgetting they left in a provision
to cut subsidies for states that didn’t set up health-care exchanges –
a provision that would have killed the entire program stone-dead two
years ago, if it had been enforced as written.
The Supreme Court rewrote ObamaCare on
the fly twice to keep it alive, which is a scandal in and
of itself. President Obama delayed
and rewrote the law so
often it was impossible to keep track of the changes, cutting Congress
out of the loop completely. (Actually, someone
careful track of them,
and the tally was up to 70 distinct changes by January 2016.)
That made some of Obama’s rewritten
mandates and deadlines blatantly
illegal – but then, the
Affordable Care Act isn’t really a “law” in the sense American
government understood the term. In practice it became something
entirely new, an enabling act that gave the executive unlimited power
to do whatever it thought necessary to keep the system running. If
subverting the American system of government isn’t a scandal, what is?
And let’s not forget the scandal of
ObamaCare’s disastrous launch, foisted on the American people even
though its designers knew it had severe
flaws – the
billion-dollar website that cost another billion dollars to fix after it crashed, accompanied by a
constellation of state exchanges that blew up like Roman candles of
bureaucratic incompetence. Let us not forget the absolute zero
accountability for this disaster, mismanaged by everyone from
President Obama to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who treated the
biggest new government program in several generations as though it
were a minor side project that could be handled by subordinates with
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
Why, if the reporter subjected to the
most egregious surveillance, James
Rosen, didn’t work for
Fox News, the mainstream media might have started treating Obama like
a (shudder) Republican. Rosen was treated so badly that even
Attorney General Eric Holder eventually admitted
feeling a bit of “remorse” about it. Apparently he felt so much
anguish that he suffered
temporary amnesia and
forgot to tell Congress that he signed off on the request to wiretap
Rosen while he was testifying under oath.
The IRS scandal: The selective targeting
of conservative groups by a politicized Internal Revenue Service was a
scandal grenade Democrats and their media pals somehow managed to
smother, even though the story began with the IRS admitting
Democrats suffocated the scandal by acting
like circus clowns during
congressional hearings, but at no point were the actual facts of the
case truly obscured: yes, pro-life and Tea Party groups were
deliberately targeted for extra scrutiny, their tax exemption
applications outrageously delayed until after the 2012 election
without actually being refused. If anything remotely comparable had been
done to, say, environmentalist and minority activist groups by the IRS
under a Republican administration, the results would have been
There’s also no question about the
facts of the follow-up scandal, in which IRS officials brazenly
lied about having backups
of relevant computer data. The American people were expected to
believe that multiple
state-of-the-art hard drives failed,
and were instantly shredded instead of being subjected to data
Luckily for the politicized IRS, the
Justice Department was hyper-politicized under Obama too, so no charges were filed,
and scandal kingpin Lois Lerner got to enjoy her taxpayer-funded
retirement after taking the Fifth
to thwart lawful congressional investigation.
Benghazi: This is the clearest
example of Obama and his supporters thinking all of his pre-2012
scandals ceased to exist the moment he won re-election. Benghazi has
been investigated extensively,
and argued about passionately, since the night of September 11, 2012.
Nothing can change the absolute fact that the Obama administration’s
story for the first few weeks after the attack was false, and they knew it was false.
They spun a phony story to buy themselves a little time during a
presidential election campaign, and it worked.
Nothing can change the fact that Libya
was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Nothing can
obscure the truth that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a
known terrorist hot zone without a backup plan to ensure his safety.
Everything else from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their
defenders is pure political spin. They dragged the story out for
years, until they thought it couldn’t hurt them any more. That doesn’t
erase its status as a scandal. (And they were evidently incorrect in
their belief that it couldn’t hurt them any more!)
Hillary Clinton’s secret server: While
we’re on the subject of Hillary Clinton, her secret email server is an
Obama scandal, too. She perpetrated her email offenses while working
as his Secretary of State, and contrary to Obama’s false assertions, he knew about it.
Plenty of Obama officials other than
Clinton played email games, most infamously EPA administrator Lisa
Jackson, who created a false identity for herself named “Richard Windsor” to get around
government transparency rules.
The Pigford scandal: Named
after a landmark lawsuit from the Bill Clinton era, the abuse of a
program meant to compensate minority farmers for racial discrimination
exploded under Obama. After years of left-wing
attacks on Andrew
Breitbart for daring to speak up about the scandal, the mainstream
media – no less than the New
York Times – finally admitted
his critique of the program was accurate in 2013.
Once again: if careless mishandling (or
deliberate politicized misuse) of huge sums of taxpayer money isn’t a
scandal, what is?
NSA spying scandal: Opinions
about the nature and intensity of this scandal vary wildly across the
political spectrum, but there’s no doubt that Edward Snowden’s
pilfering of sensitive National Security Agency data was a debacle
that damaged national security. We had the ghastly spectacle of Attorney
General Holder thanking Snowden for performing a public service by exposing surveillance programs Holder’s
own administration didn’t want to talk about.
President Obama and his administration
false statements as they
tried to contain the political damage. The fallout included significant
losses for U.S.
companies, and diplomatic
problems for the United
States. Just about everything Obama did before, during, and after the
Snowden saga damaged the relationship between American citizens and
Polluting the Colorado river: The
Environmental Protection Agency managed to turn the Colorado River orange under this greenest of green Presidents. Of
was a cover-up.
Would you expect anything less from this “transparent” administration?
The GSA scandal: The General
Services Administration was caught wasting ridiculous amounts of
taxpayer money on lavish
parties and silly
efforts to resist accountability
were made, leaving puzzled observers to ask what it took to get fired
from government employment under Barack Obama. (Alas, it was hardly
the last time that question would be asked.) Oh, and of course there
was a cover-up
from the Most Scandal-Free Administration Ever.
The VA death-list scandal: The
Department of Veterans Affairs has long been troubled, but the big
scandals broke on Obama’s watch, most infamously the secret death lists
veterans were put on while executives handed in phony status reports
and signed themselves up for big bonuses. Obama was more interested in
spinning the news and minimizing his political exposure than
addressing problems; in few areas outside ObamaCare has his rhetoric
been more hollow, his promises more meaningless.
Solyndra: The marquee green
energy scandal wrote “crony capitalism”
into the American political lexicon, as corners were cut and protocols
ignored to shovel billions of taxpayer dollars at companies with
absurdly unrealistic business models. President Obama’s ability to
pick bad investments was remarkable. Luckily for him, American
taxpayers covered his losses.
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
illegal alien criminals
from detention centers. It was an infuriating lesson for voters in how
every dollar they get from government is a dollar that can be used
against them, when they are impudent enough to demand spending
