I ask you to please show this list to as many people as possible – and especially, to please show it to as many Obama supporters as possible. Sunshine really is the best disinfectant. I can’t stop Obama from doing any of these horrible things, but I can tell people about what he is doing. So please share this list with others on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Thank you.

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

In the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I voted for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Those who are of a more leftist persuasion than myself might want to consider voting for the Green Party in future elections.

Some of the things on this list are major events that should scare the daylights out of any true liberal who cares about civil liberties.

Other things on this list are medium things that some Obama supporters may dislike, but would be willing to overlook in light of the things that Obama has done which they like.

And some of the things on this list may seem trivial, but I still think they are an interesting reflection of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.

Every claim that I make in this list is sourced. Click on the blue text to see the sources. I have cited a wide variety of sources, from right wing, to left wing, to middle of the road.

I welcome any comments and criticisms that you may have. If you say my list is wrong, please back up your claim by citing specific examples.

And now, on with the list:

1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.

2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did

In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.

3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any

While running for President, Obama had promised that, unlike Bush, he would not have any lobbyists working in his administration. However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration.

4) Has close ties to Wall St., but pretends to support Occupy Wall St.

Although Obama claims to support the Occupy Wall St. movement, the truth is that he has raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate during the last 20 years. In early 2012, Obama held a fundraiser where Wall St. investment bankers and hedge fund managers each paid $35,800 to attend. In October 2011, Obama hired Broderick Johnson, a longtime Wall Street lobbyist, to be his new senior campaign adviser. Johnson had worked as a lobbyist for JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Fannie Mae, Comcast, Microsoft, and the oil industry.

5) Broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay

Obama broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

6) Supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like Bush

While Senator, Obama voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill. The bailout rewarded irresponsible and illegal behavior. It redirected resources from more productive uses to less productive uses. It punished the hard working taxpayers who had played by the rules and obeyed the law. It created horrible incentives, and sent the wrong message. The bailout was evil because it rewarded the bad people and punished the good people. No society that does this can expect to remain free or prosperous. Instead of bailing out these corrupt corporations, we should have let them cease to exist, like we did with Enron.

7) Waged the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president, which was the opposite of what he had promised

In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the “basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs” and that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”

However, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal. Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal. In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California. Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California. Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal. In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.

In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.” In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record.” In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: “Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history.” In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had “strong concerns” about Obama’s forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi’s congressional district. In April 2012, commenting on Obama’s crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, “I’m very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration.”

In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against  Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA, which claims to be the world’s largest, and which claims to serve more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA, which teaches people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500 patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months of 2012, the DEA shut down 40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law.

In April 2013, the DEA raided four medical  marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California. Also in April 2013, the DEA raided a medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego, California. In July 2013, the DEA conducted multiple medical marijuana raids in Washington state, including the cities of Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle. In August 2013, the DEA raided People’s Choice Alternative Medicine, a medical marijuana facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In October 2013, the DEA raided 28 medical marijuana facilities in Michigan. In November 2013, the DEA raided 12 medical marijuana facilities in Denver, Colorado.

In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama’s youth, he often smoked large quantities of recreational marijuana.  Obama’s marijuana smoking wasn’t even medical – it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from their doctors, from using their prescription medicine – how cold hearted can a person be?

8) Nominated a six-time tax cheater to head the government agency that enforces the tax laws

Obama nominated Timothy Geithner, a repeat tax cheater, to head the government agency that enforces the tax laws.

Prior to his nomination, Geithner had:

1) Illegally failed to pay more than $34,000 in social security and medicare taxes

2) Illegally declared the cost of his children’s summer camp as a form of day care.

3) Illegally failed to pay the early withdrawal penalty when he took money out of his retirement plan

4) Illegally declared non-eligible items as a charitable deduction

5) Illegally declared something which was ineligible as a small business deduction

6) Illegally declared utility expenses which had actually been for his personal use

9) Gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it

Obama signed a stimulus bill that spent money on bonuses for AIG executives. Prior to signing this bill, Obama had said, “when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.” However, after reading “line by line” and signing the stimulus bill that protected the AIG bonuses, Obama pretended to be shocked and outraged at the bonuses, and said, “Under these circumstances, it’s hard to understand how derivative traders at A.I.G. warranted any bonuses at all, much less $165 million in extra pay… How do they justify this outrage to the taxpayers who are keeping the company afloat?” and also said that he would “pursue every single legal avenue to block these bonuses.”

10) Expanded Bush’s unconstitutional government faith based programs

Obama expanded the federal government’s faith based programs which had been started by President George W. Bush.

11) Supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act

In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act.

12) Increased the national debt more in one term than Bush did in two

The national debt increased more during Obama’s first three years and two months than it did during all eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency.

13) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges

In December 2011, ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero criticized Obama for signing a bill that gave the U.S. government the power to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.

14) Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, warrantless wiretapping

President Obama has defended warrantless wiretapping.

15) Avoided prosecution of Wall. St criminals

Although Obama had promised to prosecute Wall St. criminals, during his entire first term, his administration did not file any criminal charges against any of the top financial executives.

16) Had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process

Obama had four U.S. citizens killed without judicial process.

The ACLU accused Obama of violating the U.S. Constitution for doing this.

U.S. Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) said that Obama’s actions might be an impeachable offense.

Ralph Nader wrote that Obama

“has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody, anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely defined as anti-U.S. security.”

17) Ordered private company to fire 1,000 employees

In 2011, after Boeing had hired 1,000 new employees to work at its new factory in South Carolina, the Obama administration ordered Boeing to shut down the factory, because the factory was non-union.

18) Stole money from retired teachers and police officers

During the Chrysler bankruptcy, Obama violated the Fifth Amendment and more than 150 years of bankruptcy law by illegally treating secured creditors worse than unsecured creditors. Some of these secured creditors were retired teachers and police officers from Indiana. Richard A. Epstein, a law professor at New York University School of Law, wrote, “Upsetting this fixed hierarchy among creditors is just an illegal taking of property from one group of creditors for the benefit of another, which should be struck down on both statutory and constitutional grounds.” Todd Zywicki, Professor of Law at George Mason University School of Law, wrote that Obama’s treatment of secured creditors was “dangerous to the rule of law.” The Economist wrote that Obama’s actions could “establish a terrible precedent. Bankruptcy exists to sort legal claims on assets. If it becomes a tool of social policy, who will then lend to struggling firms in which the government has a political interest?” Francis Cianfrocca, the CEO of Bayshore Networks, wrote that Obama’s actions were “an astonishingly reckless abrogation of contract law that will introduce a new level of uncertainty into business transactions at all levels, and make wealth generation more difficult going forward… An extraordinary uncertainty has been created when the most powerful man in the world can rewrite contracts and choose winners and losers in private negotiations as he sees fit. Since this is an unquantifiable uncertainty, and not a quantifiable risk, its effect on business and investor confidence will be large and unpredictable. As in the 1930s, a time when government also cavalierly rewrote private contracts, the prudent approach for business will be to invest minimally and wait for another administration.”

19) Supported release of convicted mass murderer

In 2010, Obama  supported releasing Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi (who had been convicted of murdering 270 people) from prison.

20) Illegally put thousands of guns into hands of criminals

In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration ordered gun storeowners to illegally sell thousands of guns to criminals.

U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with one of these guns.

The murderer was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but his accomplices, Eric Holder and Barack Obama, haven’t even been arrested or charged.

21) Fired Inspector General for discovering that Obama’s friend had embezzled government funds

In June 2009, Obama fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin, after Walpin accused Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, an Obama supporter, of misuse of AmeriCorps funding to pay for school-board political activities. In a letter to Congress, the White House said that Walpin was fired because he was “confused, disoriented, unable to answer questions and exhibited other behavior that led the Board to question his capacity to serve.” A bipartisan group of 145 current and former public officials, attorneys, and legal scholars signed a letter that was sent to the White House, which defended Walpin, said the criticisms of him were not true, and said that his firing was politically motivated. The letter can be read here.

22) Lied about putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN

Although Obama had made a campaign promise to have all of the health care reform negotiations broadcast on C-SPAN, he broke that promise after he was elected.

The secrecy of these negotiations was so strong that U.S. Congresswoman and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

23) Lied about letting people keep their health insurance

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people… If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

Also before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“Here is a guarantee that I’ve made. If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance.”

However, after Obamacare was passed, the Congressional Budget Office said that the law would cause seven million people to lose their employer provided insurance.

After Obamacare was passed, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East announced that it would drop health insurance for the children of more than 30,000 low-wage home attendants. Mitra Behroozi, executive director of benefit and pension funds for 1199SEIU stated

“… new federal health-care reform legislation requires plans with dependent coverage to expand that coverage up to age 26… meeting this new requirement would be financially impossible.”

Also, after Obamacare was passed, the Franciscan University of Steubenville dropped its coverage in response to the law.

Universal Orlando dropped its coverage for part time employees in response to Obamacare.

In addition, after Obamacare was passed, Forbes reported

“The House Ways and Means Committee has released a new report that sheds light onto how Obamacare incentivizes companies to dump their workers onto the new law’s subsidized exchanges.”

Also after Obamacare was passed, MSN reported

“The Affordable Care Act mandate most commonly known as Obamacare has some tight stipulations that, CNN says, are forcing health care companies to rip up most of their current plans and draft new ones that comply. According to a University of Chicago study, just about half of the individual health care plans currently on the market won’t cut it once key provisions of the Affordable Care Act kick in next year.”

Furthermore, it was reported that Obamacare would cause 58,000 Aetna and UnitedHealth Group customers in California to lose their insurance.

In response to Obamacare, some employers have dropped coverage for their employees’ spouses. In August 2013, it was reported that UPS had announced that it would be dropping 15,000 spouses of its employees from its health insurance, and that it had cited Obamacare as the reason it was doing this.

The chain of Wegmans supermarkets cancelled the policies of its part time employees in response to Obamacare.

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare

“will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits… these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable… we can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans”

In August 2013, it was reported that 106,000 New Jersey citizens would lose their health insurance because of Obamacare.

In September 2013, IBM announced that it would be switching 110,000 of its retirees from their current IBM-provided health insurance to the Obamacare exchanges.

In September 2013, Trader Joe’s announced that, in response to Obamacare, it would stop providing insurance to its part time employees.

In October 2013, it was reported that at least 146,000 people in Michigan would be losing their insurance because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that Florida Blue would be dropping 300,000 customers because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that 491,977 individual insurance plans in California would be canceled because of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that, in response to Obamacare, Home Depot would stop providing insurance to its part time employees.

In October 2013, it was reported that Obamacare was forcing CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield to cancel the insurance of 76,000 people in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., because their policies did not meet the minimum requirements of Obamacare.

In October 2013, it was reported that hundreds of thousands of people in Washington state would be losing their insurance because of Obamacare.

In November 2013, it was reported that nearly nearly 250,000 people in Colorado would lose their insurance because of Obamacare.

In January 2014, it was reported that, in response to Obamacare, Target was planning to stop offering insurance to its part time employees.

24) Lied about the cost of Obamacare

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama promised

“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future. I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period. And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize.”

However, after Obama signed it, the Washington Post reported that it would add more than $340 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade.

In March 2012, the Congressional Budget Office said that over the next decade, Obamacare would cost twice as much as what Obama had promised.

In May 2013, it was reported that Obamacare’s program for high risk patients was more expensive than what Obama had promised.

25) Gave tax dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, and falsely claimed the money was for “green energy”

In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the company’s shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.

It was also revealed that the Obama administration had already been aware of Solyndra’s financial troubles. For example, according to the company’s security filings in 2009, the company had been selling its product for less than the cost of production. In 2010, Obama visited the Solyndra factory and cited it as a role model for his stimulus program, saying “It’s here that companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” The Washington Post wrote of this, “Administration officials and outside advisers warned that President Obama should consider dropping plans to visit a solar startup company in 2010 because its mounting financial problems might ultimately embarrass the White House.” Solyndra was a private company, but had been planning to use its government loans as a means of going public – so when Obama knowingly overstated the company’s condition in order to help his friends at Solyndra, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart had been sent to prison for breaking.

In September 2011, federal agents visited the homes of Brian Harrison, the company’s CEO, and Chris Gronet, the company’s founder, to examine computer files and documents.  Also in September 2011, the U.S. Treasury Department launched an investigation.

On September 13, 2011, the Washington Post reported on emails which showed that the Obama administration had tried to rush federal reviewers to approve the loan so Vice President Joe Biden could announce it at a September 2009 groundbreaking for the company’s factory. The company was a hallmark of President Obama’s plan to support clean energy technologies.

The New York Times reported that government auditors and industry analysts had faulted the Obama administration for failing to properly evaluate the company’s business proposals, as well as for failing to take note of troubling signs which were already evident. In addition, Frank Rusco, a program director at the Government Accountability Office, had found that the preliminary loan approval had been granted before officials had completed the legally mandated evaluations of the company.

The New York Times quoted Shyam Mehta, a senior analyst at GTM Research, as saying “There was just too much misplaced zeal at the Department of Energy for this company.” Among 143 companies that had expressed an interest in getting a loan guarantee, Solyndra was the first one to get approval. During the period when Solyndra’s loan guarantee was under review, the company had spent nearly $1.8 million on lobbying. Tim Harris, the CEO of Solopower, a different solar panel company which had obtained a $197 million loan guarantee, told the New York Times that his company had never considered spending any money on lobbying, and that “It was made clear to us early in the process that that was clearly verboten… We were told that it was not only not helpful but it was not acceptable.”

The Washington Post reported that Solyndra had used some of the loan money to purchase new equipment which it never used, and then sold that new equipment, still in its plastic wrap, for pennies on the dollar. Former Solyndra engineer Lindsey Eastburn told the Washington Post, “After we got the loan guarantee, they were just spending money left and right… Because we were doing well, nobody cared. Because of that infusion of money, it made people sloppy.”

On September 29, 2011, the Washington Post reported that the Obama administration had continued to allow Solyndra to receive taxpayer money even after it had defaulted on its $535 million loan.

On October 7, 2011, The Washington Post reported that newly revealed emails showed that Energy Department officials had been warned that their plan to help Solyndra by restructuring the loan might be illegal, and should be cleared with the Justice Department first. However, Energy Department officials moved ahead with the restructuring anyway, with a new deal that would repay company investors before taxpayers if the company were to default. The emails showed concerns within the Obama administration about the legality of the Energy Department’s actions. In addition, an Energy Department stimulus adviser, Steve Spinner, had pushed for the loan, despite having recused himself because his wife’s law firm had done work for the company.

In January 2012, CBS News reported that Solyndra had thrown millions of dollars worth of brand new glass tubes into garbage dumpsters, where they ended up being shattered. Solyndra told CBS that it had conducted an exhaustive search for buyers of the glass tubes, and that no one had wanted them. However, CBS discovered that Solyndra had not offered the glass tubes for sale at either one of its two asset auctions that took place in 2011. In addition, David Lucky, a buyer and seller of such equipment, told CBS that he would have bought the tubes if he had had a chance to do so. Greg Smestad, a solar scientist who had consulted for the Department of Energy, also agreed that the tubes had value, and had asked Solyndra to donate any unwanted tubes to Santa Clara University. Smestad stated, “That really makes me sad… Those tubes represent intellectual investment. These could have had a better value to do public good. I think they owed the U.S. taxpayer that.”

In April 2012, CBS News reported that Solyndra had left a substantial amount of toxic waste at its abandoned facility in Milpitas, California.

Solyndra was not the only “green energy” company involved in this type of fraud. After Obama gave Raser Technologies $33 million to build a power plant, the company declared bankruptcy, and owed $1.5 million in back taxes. After Obama gave Abound Solar, Inc. a $400 million loan guarantee to build photovoltaic panel factories, the company halted production and laid off 180 employees. After Obama gave Beacon Power a $43 million loan guarantee to build green energy storage, the company filed for bankruptcy. After Obama approved $2.1 billion in loan guarantees for Solar Trust of America so it could build solar power plants, the company filed for bankruptcy.

Although Obama stated that all of the “green energy” companies that received taxpayer money were chosen “based solely on their merits,” the truth is that 71% of these grants and loans went to Obama donors and fundraisers, who raised $457,834 for his campaign, and were later approved for grants and loans totaling more than $11 billion. By November 2011, the Energy Department’s inspector general had begun more than 100 criminal investigations related to Obama’s stimulus. Although an “independent” review said that Obama had not done anything wrong, it was later reported that Herbert M. Allison Jr., the person who had conducted this “independent” review, donated $52,500 to Obama’s campaign.

26) Had “off the record” meetings with lobbyists

In June 2010, the New York Times reported that Obama administration officials had held hundreds of meetings with lobbyists at coffee houses near the White House, in order to avoid the disclosure requirements for White House visitors, and that these meetings “reveal a disconnect between the Obama administration’s public rhetoric — with Mr. Obama himself frequently thrashing big industries’ ‘battalions’ of lobbyists as enemies of reform — and the administration’s continuing, private dealings with them.”

27) Falsely claimed to believe in public education

Although Obama said, “We need to uphold the ideal of public education,” he expressed his true opinion of America’s public education system by sending his own children to private schools while living in Chicago and Washington D.C.

28) Had armed SWAT agents raid a law-abiding guitar factory because it was owned by a Republican

President Obama had armed SWAT agents raid the Gibson guitar factory, ordered the employees to leave, and seized guitars and other property from the factory – and all of this happened without any charges being filed.

It was later reported that Gibson had not broken any U.S. laws.

Obama’s so-called justification for the raid was that Gibson had broken environmental laws from India regarding the imported wood that Gibson had been using.

However, Gibson claimed that it had not broken any Indian laws – and no charges were filed against it.

In addition, it was also reported that Henry E. Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson, was a Republican donor.

Meanwhile, C.F. Martin & Company, Gibsons’s competitor, had used the exact same imported wood, but had not gotten raided. Chris Martin IV, the CEO of Martin, was a Democratic donor.

29) Shut down Amish farm

In February 2012, Obama shut down an Amish farm for selling unpasteurized milk across state lines, even though the customers were happy with what they were buying.

30) Rewarded his fundraisers by giving them federal jobs

Although Obama had promised to have “the most sweeping ethics reform in history,” and had often criticized the role of money in politics, the truth is that after he was elected, he gave administration jobs to more than half of his 47 biggest fundraisers.

31) Ignored constitutional requirements for appointees

In February 2009, U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia) expressed concern that Obama’s dozens of czars might violate the U.S. Constitution, because they were not approved by the U.S. Senate. U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin) expressed a similar concern in September 2009.

32) Gave tax dollars to corrupt private contractors to build 504 units of mice infested, slum housing, with backed up sewage

While Obama was a state Senator in Illinois, he used tax dollars to build 504 units of slum housing, which had mice and backed up sewage. Federal inspectors graded the condition of the housing so bad that the buildings faced demolition.

33) Used tax dollars to glorify murderers

The Obama administration spent $1.6 million to restore graffiti that glorified communist murderers Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.

34) Falsely claimed that the U.S. Supreme Court had never overturned any laws that had been passed by Congress

Despite having taught constitutional law at one of the most prestigious law schools in the country, in April 2012 Obama falsely claimed that the U.S. Supreme Court had never overturned any laws that had been passed by Congress.

35) Supported new bailouts for speculators who caused housing bubble

In March 2012, Obama announced a new set of bailouts for speculators who had caused the housing bubble.

36) Spent $205,075 of taxpayer money on a shrubbery which nurseries sell for $16

As part of his economic stimulus, Obama spent $205,075 of taxpayer money to relocate and care for a single specimen of Arctostaphylos franciscana, a shrubbery which nurseries sell for $16.

37) Spent taxpayer money to see if using cocaine helped rats to enjoy the music of Miles Davis

Obama’s administration funded a study to see whether or not rats’ enjoyment of the music of Miles Davis was increased when the rats were high on cocaine.

38) Tried to outlaw family farms

In April 2012, the Obama administration proposed new regulations which would prohibit farm children under 18 from working at grain elevators, silos, feed lots, stockyards, and livestock auctions, as well as from storing, marketing and transporting farm product raw materials. Critics claimed that this would prevent children from the common practice of working on their friends’ and relatives’ farms, and that farm children did not need “help” from a community organizer in Washington.

39) Auctioned off ambassadorship to the Netherlands

In April 2012, Obama nominated Timothy Broas, who had “bundled” more than $500,000 for Obama’s 2012 campaign, to be U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands.

40) Claimed that written tests are a form of “racial discrimination”

The Obama administration accused fire and police departments in Jacksonville, Florida, New York City, and Dayton, Ohio of “racial discrimination” because they required potential firefighters and police officers to take a written test. Ten real examples of these “racist” questions from the New York test can be read here.

41) Made the TSA even more abusive and ridiculous than it had been under Bush

The Obama administration gave a very invasive patdown to a three-year-old boy in a wheelchair, which caused the boy to tremble in fear. The Obama administration gave an aggressive patdown to a seven-year-old girl with cerebral palsy.

While working as a “community organizer,” Obama filed lawsuits which forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes. As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages. As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.

Then in April 2013, during Obama’s second term as President, the Washington Post reported that President Obama was still pressuring banks “to make home loans to people with weaker credit.”

52) Broke promise to teen campaign volunteers

Obama had promised to his teen campaign volunteers that if they each spent nine hours going door to door on Obama’s behalf, he would invite them to attend his speech of September 6, 2012. However, after the teens did the volunteer work, Obama broke his promise. One of these volunteers, Madeline Frank, age 16, of Charlotte, North Carolina, said of this “I’ve been looking forward to this for a really long time. I am just feeling really let down and like bummed. It was kind of my dream to see him speak, so definitely really sad.”

53) Falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President

Obama falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President.

54) Exempted wind farms from the penalties that other companies get for killing birds

In August 2009, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights demanded that the Justice Department explain why it dismissed the charges.  In July 2010, J. Christian Adams, a former lawyer for the Justice Department, testified before the Commission on Civil Rights that the case was dropped because the Justice Department did not want to protect the civil rights of white people.

60) Falsely claimed to support the second amendment

In September 2009, Obama’s green czar Van Jones resigned after it was reported that he was a self described “communist” and had blamed George W. Bush for the September 11 attacks.

On September 12, 2008, Obama promised:

“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

However, less than three months into his Presidency, he broke that promise when he raised the cigarette tax. Studies show that poor people are more likely to smoke than rich people.

63) Falsely said he wanted to simplify the tax code, when he actually wanted to make it more complex

Although Obama said that he wanted to simplify the tax code, his proposals would actually add thousands of pages to the tax code.

In December 2010, Transparency International reported that corruption was increasing faster in the U.S. than anywhere else except Cuba, Dominica, and Burkina Faso.

65) Falsely said “This is the most transparent administration in history”

In February 2013, Obama said, “This is the most transparent administration in history.”

However, that same month, ABC News White House reporter Ann Compton, who covered Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, both Bushes, and Obama, said “The president’s day-to-day policy development… is almost totally opaque to the reporters trying to do a responsible job of covering it. There are no readouts from big meetings he has with people from the outside, and many of them aren’t even on his schedule. This is different from every president I covered. This White House goes to extreme lengths to keep the press away.”

In July 2009, White House reporter Helen Thomas criticized the Obama administration for its lack of transparency.

In October 2013, ABC News correspondent Ann Compton said that Obama was the “least transparent of the seven presidents I’ve covered in terms of how he does his daily business.”

Also, this list contains a huge number of things that Obama has done which contradict his statement.

72) Falsely said he opposed government waste, when he actually loves it

On September 22, 2008, Obama said, “I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.” However, Citizens Against Government Waste gave Obama a 2007 rating of only 10%, and a lifetime rating of only 18%.

73) Nominated past frequent user of illegal drugs to keep illegal drugs out of schools

In September 2009, it was reported that Kevin Jennings, Obama’s Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, had written about  Jenning’s own past frequent illegal drug use in his 2007 autobiography.

74) Avoids firing aides who owe back taxes

After my election I have more flexibility.”

78) Holds double standard for people who use crude and vulgar language toward women

Concerned Women for America accused Obama of hypocrisy after Obama criticized Rush Limbaugh for using crude and vulgar language to describe Sandra Fluke, but Obama did not criticize Bill Maher (who had donated one million dollars to an Obama PAC) for using the same kind of crude and vulgar language to describe Sarah Palin.

79) Illegally gave Obamacare exemptions to unions that supported the passage of Obamacare

Obama gave some organizations an exemption from some of the requirements of Obamacare.  Many of these organizations were unions that had supported the passage of Obamacare, but now wanted exemptions from the very same law that they wanted to force everyone else to obey. This reveals an extreme level of hypocrisy among many of the supporters of Obamacare.

In addition, these exemptions are illegal, because the Constitution requires the law to treat everyone the same.

The Washington Times wrote of this:

“Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.”

“The now-familiar monthly trickling down of new waivers is, at best, a tacit admission that Obamacare is a failure. So far, seven entire states and 1,372 businesses, unions and other institutions have received waivers from the law. The list includes the administration’s friends and allies and, of course, those who have the best lobbyists.”

“More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12 percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem.”

80) Defended Bush administration’s unconstitutional, unwarranted use of GPS device

Obama came out in favor of the FCC’s fining of the CBS TV network $550,000 for showing Janet Jackson’s breast during the 2004 Super Bowl.

83) Allowed campaign contributors to bring lobbyists into White House

In April 2012, the New York Times reported, “Although Mr. Obama has made a point of not accepting contributions from registered lobbyists, a review of campaign donations and White House visitor logs shows that special interests have had little trouble making themselves heard. Many of the president’s biggest donors, while not lobbyists, took lobbyists with them to the White House…”

84) Falsely said that criminal background checks constituted “racial discrimination”

In 2012, the Obama administration accused Pepsico of “race discrimination” because it used criminal background checks to screen out job applicants.

88) Holds double standard for subsidizing solar power companies

Although Obama gave taxpayer money to numerous American solar power companies, he placed a 30% tariff on solar panels imported from China, because he was against the Chinese government giving subsidies to its own companies.

89) Tried to create an administration full of tax cheaters

Obama nominated tax cheater Tom Daschle to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. After Daschle said he didn’t want the job, Obama then nominated tax cheater Kathleen Sebelius for the same position. Obama nominated tax cheater Nancy Killefer to be his administration’s Chief Performance Officer. Obama nominated  tax cheater Hilda Solis to be the Secretary of Labor. Obama nominated tax cheater Ron Kirk be the White House Chief Trade Representative.

90) Hired a Communications Director who admires a mass murderer

Anita Dunn, Obama’s White House Communications Director, said that one of her favorite political philosophers was Mao Tse-tung, the Chinese dictator who murdered tens of millions of innocent civilians.

91) Tried to replace science with political correctness

In July 2010, Charles Bolden, the administrator of NASA, said that Obama had told him that the primary purpose of NASA was “to reach out to the Muslim world.”

92) Made recess appointments when Congress was not in recess

In January 2012, Obama violated the Constitution by making four recess appointments when Congress was not in recess. Recess appointments themselves are constitutional, but only if they are made when Congress is actually in recess.

In January 2013, a federal appeals court ruled that Obama’s appointments had violated the Constitution.

In May 2013, a second federal appeals court also ruled that Obama’s appointments had violated the Constitution.

In July 2013, a third federal appeals court also ruled that Obama’s appointments had violated the Constitution.

93) Said the health insurance mandate was not a tax, but later told the Supreme Court that it was

Before Obama’s health care reform was passed, he said that the mandate was not a tax. However, after it was passed, the Obama administration argued in front of the Supreme Court that the mandate really was a tax.

94 ) Lied about being his “brother’s keeper”

Although Barack Obama likes to cite  the Bible phrase “We are our brother’s keeper,” when his real life poverty stricken brother George Obama needed $1,000 for health care bills, Barack Obama refused to pay it, so conservative author Dinesh D’Souza paid it.

95) Punishes hospitals for saving the lives of patients with heart disease

Obama’s health care reform contains a provision that reduces  Medicare payments to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates. Sunil Kripalani, MD, a professor with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said of this, “Among patients with heart failure, hospitals that have higher readmission rates actually have lower mortality rates. So, which would we rather have — a hospital readmission or a death?”

96) Supports guns for himself and his wife, but opposes them for everyone else

On January 10, 2013, President Obama signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives.

However, in 2004, when Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

97) Falsely claimed that he  “cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″

On “Meet the Press” on December 30, 2012, Obama said:

“I cut spending by over a trillion dollars in 2011″

In reality, spending during that time period was not cut at all, and was actually increased by $147 billion.

98) Practices environmental hypocrisy

In May 2008, Obama said, “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”

However, just one week later, Obama was photographed exiting an SUV.

In addition, Obama keeps the White House thermostat turned up so high that David Axelrod, Obama’s senior adviser, said, “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

“are increasingly worrying English-lovers and English teachers, who feel they must replace literary greats like The Great Gatsby and Catcher in the Rye with Common Core-suggested ‘exemplars,’ like the Environmental Protection Agency’s Recommended Levels of Insulation.”

100) Approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to a Sharia dictatorship

Obama approved giving 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, which is a Sharia dictatorship.

101) Falsely claimed that his “Cash for Clunkers” program would help the environment

Although Obama claimed that his “Cash for Clunkers” program would help the environment, it actually caused net harm to the environment. Because the program required cars to be shredded instead of recycled, it wasted 24 million barrels of oil. Many of the cars that were destroyed were in perfectly good condition. Because the program’s minimum requirement for so-called “fuel efficiency” was only 22 mpg, the reduction in pollution was negligible.

102) Violated the very same campaign finance laws that he claims to support

In January 2013, it was reported that Obama’s campaign had been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violating campaign finance laws.

103) Lied about how he had answered a questionnaire on gun control

In 1996, when Obama was answering a questionnaire on his political views, one of the questions was “Do you support state legislation to: ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns?”

Obama’s answer to the question was “Yes.”

However, in 2008, Obama said “My writing wasn’t on that particular questionnaire.”

However, ABC News later reported that the questionnaire “appears to have Obama’s handwriting.”

104) Falsely claimed that his 2013 inauguration was not funded by lobbyists

Although Obama claimed that his 2013 inauguration was not funded by lobbyists, its sponsors had actually spent $160 million on lobbying during Obama’s first presidential term.

105) Encouraged medical device manufacturers to lay off employees

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare’s medical device tax had destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from being created.

106) Encouraged employers to switch their employees from full time to part time

In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will

“destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class… the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation.”

In response to Obamacare, Forever 21 reduced its employees’ hours.

As of September 2013, more than 200 public-sector employers had reduced their employees’ hours in response to Obamacare.

Sea World reduced the weekly hours of its part time employees from 32 to 28 in response to Obamacare.

IBD has a running list that now includes 351 employers that have opted to cut work hours below 30 per week or take related steps to limit liability under ObamaCare’s employer mandate. Each entry is documented with links to news sources and public records.

About 275 entries on IBD’s list come from the public sector, including more than 100 school districts.

107) Broke his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term

The class used an American teacher, but the translater who was hired did not actually know how to speak English fluently, and made many mistakes. The instructor often did not bring the right materials to class. The dyes and clays that the instructor did use were not available in Morocco, which prevented the students from being able to copy what they had learned. It was concluded that the classes were “ineffective.”

118) Labels opponents of TSA sexual harassment as “domestic extremists”

The Obama administration labels anyone who objects to the TSA’s sexual harassment as a “domestic extremist.”

119) Lied about the Benghazi attack

In September 2012, after four U.S. citizens were killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama administration falsely said that the attack was a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video at YouTube.

CBS News reported that although it was obviously a terrorist attack, it took an entire week before the Obama administration was willing to acknowledge it as such.

The Washington Post reported that Obama had falsely said that he had called it a terrorist attack from the very start.

After the attack began, someone (there is a debate over who this someone was) ordered the nearby U.S. military to “stand down,”, i.e., not offer any assistance. Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military. Obama later falsely claimed that the “stand down” order had not been made.

Although the Obama administration made a dozen revisions to its talking points on this incident, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney falsely stated that only a “single adjustment” had been made, and that it simply involved changing the wording of “consulate” to “diplomatic facility.” ABC News published a complete list of all the changes to the talking points, which can be read here.

Among the changes was the deletion of this entire paragraph:

“The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya.  These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador’s convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks.”

Victoria Nuland, a State Department spokeswoman, played a key role in the editing of the talking points. But instead of firing her for this, Obama offered her a promotion.

The Obama administration asked Fox News to stop reporting on Benghazi.

124) Complained to YouTube about an anti-Muslim video

Ben Wizner of the ACLU said that of this, “It does make us nervous when the government throws its weight behind any requests for censorship.”

Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation  said of this, “I am actually kind of distressed by this… Even though there are all these great quotes from inside the White House saying they support free speech….by calling YouTube from the White House, they were sending a message no matter how much they say we don’t want them to take it down, when the White House calls and asks you to review it, it sends a message and has a certain chilling effect.”

130) Refused to fire federal employee who sent email to 17,000 people praising terrorist who wanted to destroy U.S.

In 2012, an employee of Obama’s administration sent an email to more than 17,000 federal employees which praised Che Guevara, a terrorist who had wanted to destroy the U.S. Obama refused to fire the employee.

131) Called Fort Hood shooting “workplace violence” instead of “Islamic terrorism”

After Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” and murdered 13 people on U.S. soil, instead of referring to it as “Islamic terrorism,” Obama said that it was “workplace violence.”

132) Falsely said that switching to electronic medical records would make health care cheaper

Although Obama claimed that switching to electronic record keeping as part of Obamacare would make health care cheaper, it actually made it more expensive.

133) Spent $495,000 of “stimulus” money for ads on MSNBC

Obama spent $495,000 of “stimulus” money for commercials on MSNBC.

134) Lied about the cost of federal regulations

In September 2012, it was reported that the cost of federal regulations to citizens and business owners was more than 20 times as much as what Obama had said it was.

135) Broke his promise to pass immigration bill, and then lied about why he broke it

In 2008, Obama promised that he would pass an immigration bill during his first year in office. He broke that promise. He then blamed this on Republicans, even though both the House and Senate were controlled by Democrats during Obama’s first year.

136) Made it much harder for start ups to raise capital and create jobs

In July 2010, Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Act. The Wall St. Journal wrote of this:

“Senator Chris Dodd’s 1,400-page financial reform bill contains many economic land mines, and here’s one of the worst: Provisions that would make it harder for business start-ups to raise seed capital.”

“Currently, wealthy individuals who want to invest directly in a new business can do so with minimum interference from regulators. The law requires only that the investor be “accredited” by meeting thresholds for net worth ($1 million) or income ($250,000). Entrepreneurs depend on these “angel” investors, since many new businesses lack the collateral for bank loans and are too small to interest venture capitalists. “

“Amazon, Yahoo, Google and Facebook all benefited from angel investors, who typically target companies under five years old. According to a 2009 Kaufman Foundation study, such firms are less than 1% of all companies yet generate about 10% of new jobs. Between 1980 and 2005, companies less than five years old accounted for all net job growth in the U.S. In 2008, angels invested some $19 billion in more than 55,000 companies. “

“Mr. Dodd’s bill would change all this for the worse. Most preposterously, it would require that start-ups seeking angel investments file with the Securities and Exchange Commission and endure a 120-day review. Rare is the new company that doesn’t need immediate access to the capital it raises, and a four-month delay is the kind of rule popular in banana republics that create few new businesses. “

“The Dodd bill also raises the net worth and income thresholds to $2.3 million and $450,000, respectively. The Angel Capital Association, a trade group, estimates that these provisions would disqualify about 77% of current accredited investors.”

137) Paid six figure salaries to federal employees so they could watch pornography all day long

In April 2010, ABC News reported:

“On a day when President Obama argued for more government regulation over the financial industry, a new government report reveals that some high-level regulators have spent more time looking at porn than policing Wall Street. “

“The Securities and Exchange Commission is supposed to be the sheriff of the financial industry, looking for financial crimes like Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. But the new report, obtained by ABC News, says senior employees of the SEC spent hours on the commission’s computers looking at sites like naughty.com, skankwire, youporn, and others. “

“The investigation, which was conducted by the SEC’s internal watchdog at the request of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, found 31 serious offenders over the past two and a half years. Seventeen of the offenders were senior SEC officers with salaries ranging from $100,000 to $222,000 per year. “

“Eight Hours a Day Spent on Porn Sites”

“One senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington spent up to eight hours a day accessing Internet porn. When he filled all the space on his government computer with pornographic images, he downloaded more to CDs and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices. “

“An SEC accountant attempted to access porn websites 1,800 times in a two-week period and had 600 pornographic images on her computer hard drive.”

“Another SEC accountant attempted to access porn sites 16,000 times in a single month.”

138) Spent tax dollars on a “mindreader”

Obama used taxpayer money to hire a “mindreader.”

139) Used tax dollars to build a million dollar bus stop

Obama spent federal tax dollars to pay for part of the cost of a million dollar bus stop which opened in Arlington, Virginia in March 2013. Despite its huge cost, the bus stop can only accommodate 15 people, and does not even protect them from the wind and rain.

140) Filed a lawsuit against a non-existent “monopoly” in the beer industry

Although the number of  breweries in the U.S. increased from 89 to 2,336  between 1978 and 2013, the Obama administration sued Anheuser-Busch InBev, which already owned half of Mexico’s Grupo Modelo, to prevent if from buying the other half, despite the fact that there were no laws on the books against such a purchase. The Obama administration’s so-called justification for this lawsuit against a law abiding company was that the company might, possibly, maybe, break some unspecified law, at some unspecified, distant point in the future.

141) Falsely said the sequester would cause janitors to take a pay cut

In February 2013, while talking about the sequester, Obama said

“The folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol — now that Congress has left, somebody is going to be vacuuming and cleaning those floors and throwing out the garbage — they’re going to have less pay… The janitors, the security guards, they just got a pay cut, and they’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.”

CBS News reported that Obama’s statement was false.

142) Falsely said that he goes skeet shooting “all the time”

At the beginning of Obama’s second term, he said that he goes skeet shooting “all the time.” However, a witness said that when he saw Obama go skeet shooting, Obama acted as if he had never fired a gun before, that he appeared to be uncomfortable with a gun, and that he only stayed for five minutes. In addition, during his first term, the media had never reported on his alleged skeet shooting, although it never failed to cover the more than 100 rounds of golf that he played during his first term.

143)  Gave special access to people who raised or donated $500,000

In February 2013, the New York Times reported that people who raised or donated at least $500,000 to Organizing for Action, a political group that supported Obama, would be given “the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”

144) Said the deficit had gone down when it had actually gone up

In February 2013, Obama said that the federal deficit had gone down by $2.5 trillion since he had taken office. In reality, it had actually increased by $5.9 trillion during that time.

145) Refused to make available necessary tax forms to taxpayers

On February 21, 2013, CBS News reported that the Obama administration had not yet made available dozens of different tax forms that taxpayers would need in order to meet the legal deadline of April 15 for filing their taxes.

146) Nominated someone to be Secretary of the Treasury who had participated in “the biggest tax scam on record”

Obama nominated Jack Lew to be Secretary of the Treasury. Lew had previously invested in the Cayman Islands, which Obama had referred to as “the biggest tax scam on record.”

147) Adopted harmful new restrictions on prescription painkillers – even though the House had already voted against them

After the U.S. House voted against new restrictions on prescription painkillers, the Obama administration ignored the House’s vote, and adopted the new restrictions anyway. Dr. Lynn Webster, president-elect of the American Academy of Pain Medicine said of these new restrictions, “It will have an impact on a lot of patients who have been receiving them for some time for legitimate purposes.”

148) Rolled back union transparency rules

The Obama administration rolled back  union transparency rules, which had been created so that union members could find out how their union was spending their union dues.

149) Tried to eliminate workers’ right to a secret ballot when voting on whether or not to unionize

Obama supported the elimination of workers’ right to a secret ballot when voting on whether or not to form a union

150) Gave “supervised release” to a convicted criminal who later went on to murder a nun

Obama gave “supervised release” to a convicted criminal, who then went on to murder a nun.

151) Falsely said that he did not propose the sequester

On October 22, 2012, Obama said, “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed.” However, on February 22, 2013, the Washington Post reported that “the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House” and that “Obama personally approved of the plan.”

152) Illegally refused to submit a budget on time during four of his first five years

The President is legally required to submit a budget by the first Monday in February. Obama broke this law during four of his first five years in office. Since 1921, no President had missed this deadline more than once.

153) Canceled White House tours for thousands of people so he could use the money to play golf with Tiger Woods

During the sequester in early 2013, the Obama administration said it would save $18,000 per week by cancelling all White house tours, despite the fact that thousands of people had planned their vacations far in advance. However, Obama had no problem with spending more than $1 million in tax money so he could go golfing with Tiger Woods for one weekend.

154) Falsely said the Newton shooter used a “fully automatic weapon”

In April 2013, four months after Adam Lanza murdered 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Obama falsely stated that the shooter had used a “fully automatic weapon.”

155) Broke his own deadline for creating healthcare exchanges

Three years after Obama signed Obamacare, the New York Times reported that Obama would miss his own deadline for creating some of the insurance exchanges for small businesses.

156) Falsely said that surgeons get paid between $30,000 and $50,000 for amputating a leg

In August 2009, while trying to justify the passage of Obamacare, Obama stated

“Let’s take the example of something like diabetes, one of — a disease that’s skyrocketing, partly because of obesity, partly because it’s not treated as effectively as it could be. Right now if we paid a family — if a family care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they’re taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance. But if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that’s $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 — immediately the surgeon is reimbursed. Well, why not make sure that we’re also reimbursing the care that prevents the amputation, right? That will save us money.”

The American College of Surgeons responded to this by saying

“President Obama got his facts completely wrong. He stated that a surgeon gets paid $50,000 for a leg amputation when, in fact, Medicare pays a surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation. This payment also includes the evaluation of the patient on the day of the operation plus patient follow-up care that is provided for 90 days after the operation. Private insurers pay some variation of the Medicare reimbursement for this service.”

157) Falsely said that doctors perform unnecessary tonsillectomies to make more money
In July 2009, Obama said

“Right now, doctors, a lot of times, are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that’s out there. So if … your child has a bad sore throat, or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, ‘You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.’”

“Now, that may be the right thing to do. But I’d rather have that doctor making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid’s tonsils out or whether it might make more sense just to change — maybe they have allergies. Maybe they have something else that would make a difference.”

The  American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery responded by saying

“The AAO-HNS is disappointed by the President’s portrayal of the decision making processes by the physicians who perform these surgeries. In many cases, tonsillectomy may be a more effective treatment, and less costly, than prolonged or repeated treatments for an infected throat.”

158) Purchased 2,717 mine resistant armor protected vehicles for use on civilian streets in the U.S.

In March 2013 it was reported that the Obama administration had purchased 2,717 mine resistant armor protected vehicles for use on civilian streets in the U.S.

159) Spends $277,050 per year for three professional calligraphists

In March 2013, it was reported that Obama was spending $277,050 of tax money per year for three professional calligraphists. It was also reported that cheap computer software could produce the exact same calligraphy for a tiny fraction of that cost.

160) Allowed 311,566 federal employees and retirees to get away with $3.5 billion in unpaid federal taxes

In 2011, Obama allowed 311,566 federal employees and retirees to get away with $3.5 billion in unpaid federal taxes.

161) Spent $2.6 million to teach Chinese prostitutes how to drink responsibly on the job

Obama spent $2.6 million to teach Chinese prostitutes how to drink responsibly on the job.

162) Fined UPS $40 million because some of its customers had used UPS to ship illegal drugs

In March 2013, Obama forced UPS to pay $40 million because some of its customers had used UPS to ship illegal drugs.

163) Added 20,000 extra pages to Obamacare without Congressional approval

After Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra pages to it, even though those extra 20,000 pages had not been voted on by Congress.

164 ) Signed health care reform law whose own authors called it a “huge train wreck” that was “beyond comprehension”

U.S. Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana), one of the authors of Obamacare, said of it, “I just see a huge train wreck coming down.”

U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia), another author of the law, said it was “beyond comprehension.”

165) Eliminated disclosure requirements for most federal employees in the executive and legislative branches

In April 2013, Obama eliminated the disclosure requirements for most federal employees in the executive and legislative branches.

166) Waited until after the 2012 election to release unpopular Obamacare rules

In April 2013, the New York Times reported:

… even fervent supporters of the law admit that things are going worse than expected.

…  the Obama administration didn’t want to release unpopular rules before the election.

Everything is turning out to be more complicated than originally envisioned.

A law that was very confusing has become mind-boggling… Americans are just going to be overwhelmed and befuddled. Many are just going to stay away, even if they are eligible for benefits.

167) Made it easy for people to fraudulently collect $50,000 by falsely claiming to be “farmers”

In April 2013, the New York Times reported

the Obama administration’s political appointees at the Justice and Agriculture Departments engineered a stunning turnabout: they committed $1.33 billion to compensate…

The deal… was fashioned in White House meetings… the $50,000 payouts to black farmers had proved a magnet for fraud.

the claims process prompted allegations of widespread fraud and criticism that its very design encouraged people to lie… Agriculture Department reviewers found reams of suspicious claims, from nursery-school-age children and pockets of urban dwellers, sometimes in the same handwriting with nearly identical accounts of discrimination.

As a senator, Barack Obama supported expanding compensation for black farmers, and then as president he pressed for $1.15 billion to pay those new claims.

In 16 ZIP codes in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and North Carolina, the number of successful claimants exceeded the total number of farms operated by people of any race in 1997, the year the lawsuit was filed. Those applicants received nearly $100 million.

In Maple Hill, a struggling town in southeastern North Carolina, the number of people paid was nearly four times the total number of farms. More than one in nine African-American adults there received checks. In Little Rock, Ark., a confidential list of payments shows, 10 members of one extended family collected a total of $500,000, and dozens of other successful claimants shared addresses, phone numbers or close family connections.

In Arkansas, prosecutors rejected a test case against a Pine Bluff police officer who had admitted lying on his claim form.

in one ZIP code in Columbus, Ohio, nearly everyone in two adjoining apartment buildings had filed, according to the former high-ranking agency official.

She cinched the claim, he said to a ripple of laughter, by asserting that her father had whispered on his deathbed, “I was discriminated against by U.S.D.A.”

168) Tried to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was trying to rig federal auctions of radio spectrum space in a manner that would favor Sprint and T-Mobile, and make it harder for AT&T and Verizon.

169) Put someone in jail for making an anti-Muslim video

In May 2013, Politico reported:

“Nakoula Basseley Nakoula deserves a place in American history. He is the first person in this country jailed for violating Islamic anti-blasphemy laws.”

“You won’t find that anywhere in the charges against him, of course. As a practical matter, though, everyone knows that Nakoula wouldn’t be in jail today if he hadn’t produced a video crudely lampooning the prophet Muhammad.”

“In the weeks after the attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, the Obama administration claimed the terrorist assault had been the outgrowth of a demonstration against the Nakoula video. The administration ran public service announcements in Pakistan featuring President Barack Obama saying the U.S. had nothing to do with it. In a speech at the United Nations around this time, the president declared — no doubt with Nakoula in mind — ‘The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.’”

“After Benghazi, the administration was evidently filled with a fierce resolve — to bring Nakoula Basseley Nakoula to justice. Charles Woods, the father of a Navy SEAL killed in Benghazi, said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told him when his son’s body returned to Andrews Air Force Base: ‘We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.’”

“Lo and behold, Nakoula was brought in for questioning by five Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies at midnight, eventually arrested and held without bond, and finally thrown into jail for a year. He sits in La Tuna Federal Correctional Institution in Texas right now, even as the deceptive spin that blamed his video for the Benghazi attack looks more egregious by the day.”

170) Oversaw IRS whose employees illegally targeted conservative groups

In May 2013, the Washington Post reported that the IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional reviews. Organizations with the words “tea party” or “patriot” were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members.

When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees had known about it, and that no high level IRS officials had known about it. However, soon afterward, NPR reported that an Inspector General report showed that Lerner had been lying, and that she herself had actually been aware of it since June 29, 2011. Even worse, during March and April of 2012, Lerner herself had actually written such letters to fifteen different conservative groups. One of these letters can be read here.

While testifying in May 2013, Lerner said, “I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or regulations. And I have not provided false information to this or any other congressional committee.” However, afterward, she invoked her fifth amendment right to remain silent. The Washington Post reported that there was disagreement as to whether or not Lerner’s statement constituted a waiving of her fifth amendment right to remain silent. Soon afterward, she was placed on paid administrative leave. At a later hearing in March 2014, Lerner again invoked her fifth amendment right to remain silent.

In September 2013, a House committee released several of Lerner’s emails, which showed that she had targeted tea party groups, and that she had asked that their applications be delayed. In one of the emails from 2011, she had written “Tea Party Matter very dangerous.”

In September 2013, after having been on paid leave for four months, Lerner had still not been fired by Obama.

In October 2013, it was reported that newly discovered emails proved that Lerner had violated federal law by giving the Federal Election Commission confidential tax information of several Tea party groups.

The Washington Post reported that IRS officials at the IRS headquarters in Washington D.C. had sent such letters to conservatives groups. Reuters reported that higher level IRS officials had taken part in discussions about it as early as August 2011. However, 21 months later, on May 10, 2013, the Washington Post reported that President Obama had not done anything to investigate or fire the IRS employees who had engaged in this illegal harassment. As of May 14, 2013, none of the IRS employees who engaged in any of this illegal behavior had been disciplined, despite the fact that higher level IRS officials had known about their illegal behavior at least since August 2011. Despite all of these media reports about the involvement of high level IRS officials, in February 2014, Obama said that these things had come from “a local office.”

On May 15, 2013, it was reported that Steven Miller, the acting IRS commissioner, had resigned. However, it was also reported that his assignment would have ended in early June anyway. He resigned – Obama did not fire him.

The IRS gave out confidential information about conservative groups. ProPublica wrote:

“The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election released nine pending confidential applications of conservative groups to ProPublica late last year.”

“In response to a request for the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications had not yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made public.”

“No unapproved applications from liberal groups were sent to ProPublica.”

President Obama either lied about when he first knew about this – or was too busy playing golf and attending fundraisers to read the memos that were sent to him. The Daily Caller wrote:

“White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a press conference Tuesday that the White House was notified about the IRS targeting tea party groups ‘several weeks ago.’ This comes a day after President Obama said he found out about it from news reports on Friday of last week.”

“During a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday, President Obama was asked about the IRS scandal. He responded, ‘I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.’

“However, Carney said Tuesday that first a report had to be compiled by the IRS’s inspector general and then when it was completed, it was passed on to the administration.”

“‘A notification is appropriate and routine and that is what happened and that happened several weeks ago,’ Carney said.”

When Media Trackers, a conservative organization, applied to the IRS for non-profit status, after waiting 16 months, it got no response. But when it reapplied with a liberal sounding name, it got approval in just three weeks. Yahoo wrote:

“In May 2011, Drew Ryun, a conservative activist and former Republican National Committee staffer, began filling out the Internal Revenue Service application to achieve nonprofit status for a new conservative watchdog group.”

“When September 2012 arrived with still no word from the IRS, Ryun determined that Media Trackers would likely never obtain standalone nonprofit status, and he tried a new approach: He applied for permanent nonprofit status for a separate group called Greenhouse Solutions, a pre-existing organization that was reaching the end of its determination period.”

“The IRS approved Greenhouse Solutions’ request for permanent nonprofit status in three weeks.”

Politico reported:

“The same Internal Revenue Service office that singled out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny also challenged Israel-related organizations, at least one of which filed suit over the agency’s handling of its application for tax-exempt status.”

“The trouble for the Israel-focused groups seems to have had different origins than that experienced by conservative groups, but at times the effort seems to have been equally ham-handed.”

The IRS asked conservative groups what books they were reading.

Although the IRS went 18 months or longer without responding to conservative organizations’ applications, the IRS demanded that these same organizations answer the IRS’s intrusive questions within a few weeks.

After the Waco Tea Party sent an application to the IRS, the IRS waited 19 months to respond. In its response, the IRS asked for printouts of its web page and social networking sites, copies of all of its newsletters, bulletins and fliers, and copies of all stories written about it. The IRS also asked for transcripts of its radio interviews.

As one example of how the IRS treated conservative organizations differently from liberal ones, Politico reported:

“Chris Littleton, one of the co-founders of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, said the group got a grilling from the IRS when it submitted its application, in letters the group has posted on its website. The IRS also gave him so much grief when he tried to apply for tax-exempt status for another group, American Junto, that ‘we just gave up on it,’ he said.”

“But when he submitted an application for a third group — Ohioans for Health Care Freedom, now renamed Ohio Rising — ‘it went through just fine,’ Littleton said. ‘They never asked a single set of questions.’”

After the  Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots sent in their application, it took  two years for the IRS to respond. The IRS response included 35 questions. When the group’s cofounder called the IRS, the IRS agent claimed that he had their group’s file right in front of him. But when the group’s confounder asked the IRS agent a question, the IRS agent asked, “What’s your group’s name again?”

Tea Party groups who spoke with each other said they were all getting the same questions from the IRS.

The Washington Post reported that some IRS employees were “ignorant about tax laws, defiant of their supervisors, and blind to the appearance of impropriety.”

In 2012, the IRS leaked confidential information about Mitt Romney to the co-chairman of President Obama’s re-election committee.

For a 27 month period that began in February 2010, the IRS gave exactly zero approvals to Tea Party organizations that had sent in applications. During that same time period, numerous  liberal organizations with names including words such as “progress” or “progressive” did get approval.

After True the Vote, a conservative organization which was founded by Catherine Engelbrecht, sent its application to the IRS, the IRS went three years without responding. During that three year period, Engelbrecht and her family’s small manufacturing business were audited by the IRS, and were investigated by OSHA, the ATF, and the FBI.

Democratic U.S. Senators pressured the IRS to target conservative groups. In May 2013, U.S. News & World Report wrote:

“Over the last three years, Democratic senators repeatedly and publicly pressured the IRS to engage in the very activities that they are only now condemning today. At the same time, Republicans repeatedly and publicly warned against this abuse of government power and pointed to a series of red flags that strongly suggested conservative political organizations were being targeted by the IRS. Those warnings were deliberately ignored by the Obama administration and Democratic leaders in Congress.”

“From Max Baucus to Chuck Schumer to Jeanne Shaheen, key Senate Democrats publicly pressured the IRS to target groups that held differing political views and who, in their view, had the temerity to engage in the political process. The IRS listened to them and acted.”

In order to get approval, the IRS required members of Coalition for Life of Iowa, a pro-life organization, to sign a promise to avoid protesting in front of Planned Parenthood.

The IRS asked Christian Voices for Life, a pro-life organization, questions about its prayer vigils.

According to the official White House visitor’s log, during Obama’s first four years as President, IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House. This is more visits to the White House – by a very large margin – than any other cabinet member during Obama’s first term. By comparison, during the four years that Mark Everson was IRS commissioner when Bush was president, Everson made only one visit to the White House.

Shulman donated $500 to the Democratic National Committee in October 2004.

During Congressional testimony that had taken place in March 2012, Shulman falsely said that the IRS had not targeted conservative groups.

Shulman’s wife, Susan L. Anderson, is the senior program advisor for Public Campaign, a liberal organization. The Dailer Caller wrote of this group:

Public Campaign receives “major funding” from the pro-Obamacare alliance Health Care for America NOW!, which is comprised of the labor unions AFL-CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and the progressive activist organization Move On, among others.

Public Campaign also receives funding from the liberal Ford Foundation, the Common Cause Education Fund, and Barbra Streisand’s The Streisand Foundation, among other foundations and private donors.

Stephen Seok was one of the IRS agents who wrote threatening letters to conservative groups. After doing so, he was given a  promotion.

In June 2013, it was reported that two IRS employees had violated government ethics rules at a 2010 conference when they received $1,100 in free food and other items. One of them was Fred Schindler, the director of implementation oversight at the IRS Affordable Care Act office. The other was Donald Toda, a California-based employee. Obama did not fire them. Instead, he gave both of them paid leave. By comparison, in 1981, President Reagan fired 11,359 air-traffic controllers who had been illegally striking.

In June 2013, it was reported that The National Organization for Marriage, a conservative organization, had forensic evidence which proved that its donors’ private information had been illegally leaked by the IRS. The IRS employees who illegally leaked this private information could get five years in prison. However, Obama refused to file any charges against these IRS criminals.

The IRS illegally leaked the private information of Christine O’Donnell the same day that she announced that she would run for U.S. Senate as a tea party candidate.

According to White House visitor logs, Obama met with Colleen Kelley, the president of the National Treasury Employees Union, on March 31, 2010. The very next day, IRS employees who belonged to that union union started to target tea party organizations.

In July 2013, it was reported that Obama had met with a key IRS official who was involved in the targeting just two days before the key official had told his colleagues how to target tea party groups. The Daily Caller reported:

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins’ office sent the exempt organizations determinations unit “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS inspector general’s report.

Jon Stewart said of this:

“Well, congratulations, President Barack Obama. Conspiracy theorists who generally can survive in anaerobic environments have just had an algae bloom dropped on their f***ing heads, thus removing the last arrow in your pro-governance quiver: skepticism about your opponents.”

Michael Macleod-Ball, chief of staff at the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office, said of this:

“Even the appearance of playing partisan politics with the tax code is about as constitutionally troubling as it gets. With the recent push to grant federal agencies broad new powers to mandate donor disclosure for advocacy groups on both the left and the right, there must be clear checks in place to prevent this from ever happening again.”

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had chosen Barbara Kay Bosserman to head the investigation of the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups. Bosserman had donated more than $6,000 to Obama’s two presidential campaigns.

In January 2014, it was reported that since Sarah Palin had announced her candidacy for vice-President in 2008, the IRS had harassed her father six different times. Prior to that, the IRS had never contacted him during the 50 years that he had worked. The report did not specify how many of these six incidents happened under President Bush, or how many happened under President Obama.

In January 2014, it was reported that during the FBI’s so-called “investigation” of the IRS’s harassment of tea party groups, the FBI had not actually interviewed any tea party groups.

In January 2014, it was reported that the IRS had demanded that Friends of Abe (a conservative organization whose members work in the entertainment industry) give the IRS enhanced access to its security protected website (which included its secret membership list), even though such a demand was not standard IRS procedure. In addition, even though the organization had applied to the IRS for tax free status two years earlier, the IRS had still not made a decision regarding the application.

In February 2014, Obama said that there was “not even a smidgeon of corruption” in the IRS’s actions.

In February 2014, it was reported that during Obama’s presidency, 100% of the established 501(c)(4) groups that had been audited by the IRS were conservative.

In February 2014, when Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly asked Obama about the IRS harassment of tea party groups, Obama said “These kinds of things keep on surfacing, in part because you and your TV station will promote them.”

171) Spent $402,721 on underwear that detects the presence of cigarette smoke

In May 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $402,721 on underwear that detects the presence of  cigarette smoke.

172) Rewarded one of his biggest campaign fundraisers by nominating him for the ambassadorship to Canada

In April 2013, it was reported that Obama had nominated Bruce Heyman to be the ambassador to Canada. During Obama’s election campaign, Heyman had raised more than $1 million for Obama.

173) Hired a retarded man to sell illegal drugs and guns, and then arrested him for doing so

In April 2013, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

“ATF agents running an undercover storefront in Milwaukee used a brain-damaged man with a low IQ to set up gun and drug deals, paying him in cigarettes, merchandise and money, according to federal documents obtained by the Journal Sentinel.”

“For more than six months, federal agents relied on Chauncey Wright to promote ‘Fearless Distributing’ by handing out fliers as he rode his bike around town recommending the store to friends, family and strangers, according to federal prosecutors and family members.”

“Wright, unaware that the store was an undercover operation being run by agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, also stocked shelves with shoes, clothing, drug paraphernalia and auto parts, according to his family.”

“Once authorities shut down the operation, they charged the 28-year-old man with federal gun and drug counts.”

“Wright’s IQ measures in the 50s, about half of a normal IQ, according to those familiar with him. Wright’s score is classified as mildly or moderately disabled, depending on the IQ scale used.”

174) Secretly obtained phone records from Associated Press reporters and editors

In May 2013, Associated Press reported:

The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top executive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.

The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of calls.

In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.

In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the phone records and destruction of all copies.

“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” Pruitt said.

Soon afterward, it was reported that obtaining these phone records had required approval from Eric Holder, Obama’s Attorney General.

This has had a very dangerous and harmful effect on the media’s ability to report the news. In June 2013, Gary Pruitt, the president and chief executive  of Associated Presssaid:

“Some longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about talking with us… In some cases, government employees we once checked in with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone. Others are reluctant to meet in person … This chilling effect on newsgathering is not just limited to AP… Journalists from other news organizations have personally told me that it has intimidated both official and nonofficial sources from speaking to them as well.”

175) Asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on government contracts

In April 2011, Obama asked contractors to disclose their political donations before bidding on government contracts.

176) Tried to deport German family that had fled Germany over Hitler’s ban on homeschooling

In Germany in 1938, Adolf Hitler outlawed homeschooling. He said “Give me a child when he’s seven and he’s mine forever.”

Hitler’s ban on homeschooling is still in effect today. In 2006, Katharina Plett was arrested for homeschooling her own children. Her husband and their children fled the country. In 2008, Juergen and Rosemary Dudek were sentenced to 90 days in jail for homeschooling their own children.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their homeschooled children fled Germany after the police showed up at their house to enforce Germany’s ban on homeschooling. They came to the United States in 2010 and were granted political asylum, which gave them legal permission to live in the U.S. as political refugees  However, in March 2013, the Obama administration argued in federal court in favor of deporting them and sending them back to Germany. This means that Obama does not consider them to be political refugees, and that he does not consider Germany’s policy of jailing homeschooling parents to be a form of persecution.

177) Said, “We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends”

Obama said (the bolding is mine)

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election — then I think it’s going to be harder. And that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2nd.”

This is a rare instance of a promise that Obama has actually kept instead of broken. A huge number of the things on this list can be explained by that one simple sentence that Obama said.

178) Falsely accused a law abiding news reporter of being “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation

James Rosen is a law abiding reporter for Fox News. However, the Obama administration falsely labeled him as “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation when it applied for a warrant to read his emails.

The New York Times wrote of this:

With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.

Leak investigations usually focus on the source, not the reporter. But, in this case, federal prosecutors also asked a federal judge for permission to examine Mr. Rosen’s personal e-mails, arguing that “there is probable cause to believe” Mr. Rosen is “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in the leak.

Though Mr. Rosen was not charged, the F.B.I. request for his e-mail account was granted secretly in late May 2010. The government was allowed to rummage through Mr. Rosen’s e-mails for at least 30 days.

Michael Clemente, the executive vice president of Fox News, said on Monday that it was “downright chilling” that Mr. Rosen “was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter.” Bruce Brown, the executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, added on Tuesday that treating “routine news-gathering efforts as evidence of criminality is extremely troubling and corrodes time-honored understandings between the public and the government about the role of the free press.”

Obama administration officials often talk about the balance between protecting secrets and protecting the constitutional rights of a free press. Accusing a reporter of being a “co-conspirator”… shows a heavy tilt toward secrecy and insufficient concern about a free press.

The Washington Post wrote of this:

The Rosen affair is as flagrant an assault on civil liberties as anything done by George W. Bush’s administration, and it uses technology to silence critics in a way Richard Nixon could only have dreamed of.

To treat a reporter as a criminal for doing his job — seeking out information the government doesn’t want made public — deprives Americans of the First Amendment freedom on which all other constitutional rights are based. Guns? Privacy? Due process? Equal protection? If you can’t speak out, you can’t defend those rights, either.

Beyond that, the administration’s actions shatter the president’s credibility and discourage allies who would otherwise defend the administration against bogus accusations such as those involving the Benghazi “talking points.” If the administration is spying on reporters and accusing them of criminality just for asking questions — well, who knows what else this crowd is capable of doing?

My Post colleague Ann E. Marimow, who broke the Rosen story, obtained the affidavit by FBI agent Reginald Reyes seeking access to Rosen’s private e-mails. In the affidavit, Reyes stated that “there is probable cause to believe that the reporter has committed or is committing a violation” of the law against national security leaks. The affidavit detailed how the FBI had monitored Rosen’s comings and goings from the State Department and tracked his various phone calls with the suspected leaker, analyst Stephen Jin-Woo Kim.

Rosen’s supposed crime? Reyes got his evidence from an e-mail from the reporter: “I want to report authoritatively, and ahead of my competitors, on new initiatives or shifts in U.S. policy, events on the ground in [North Korea], what intelligence is picking up, etc. . . . I’d love to see some internal State Department analyses. . . . In short: Let’s break some news, and expose muddle-headed policy when we see it, or force the administration’s hand to go in the right direction, if possible.”

That is indeed compelling evidence — of good journalism.

Obama is establishing an ominous precedent.

179) Asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate himself for lying under oath

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath. He said that he had nothing to do with monitoring the emails of Fox News reporter James Rosen. But it turns out that it was Holder’s own signature on the search warrant.

Even the liberal Huffington Post said that Holder should be fired over this.

Holder could get five years in prison.

So, did President Obama fire Holder?

Of course not!

Instead, Obama asked that Holder be investigated – not by an independent investigating committee – but by Holder himself!

I can see it now…

Obama: “Did you lie?”

Holder: “No.”

Obama: “OK. That’s good enough for me. You’re cleared of any wrongdoing.”

180) Used Obamacare to illegally give the IRS additional powers without approval from Congress

In May 2013 the Washington Post wrote:

The law allows the Department of Health and Human Services to set up federal health exchanges in the holdout states. But the statute makes no mention of the IRS providing credits and subsidies through federal exchanges.

The IRS resolved this conundrum by denying its existence. In a May 2012 regulatory ruling, it asserted its own right to provide credits outside the state exchanges as the reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous law. But the language of the law is not ambiguous. And health scholars Jonathan Adler and Michael Cannon, in an exhaustive recent analysis, find no justification for the IRS’s ruling in the legislative history of Obamacare. “The statute,” they argue, “and the lack of any support for the IRS rule in the legislative record put defenders of the IRS rule in the awkward position of arguing that it was so obviously Congress’ intent to offer tax credits in federal exchanges that despite a year of debate over the PPACA, it never occurred to anyone to express that intent out loud. A better explanation is that the PPACA’s authors miscalculated when they assumed states would establish exchanges.”

So: The IRS seized the authority to spend about $800 billion over 10 years on benefits that were not authorized by Congress. And the current IRS scandal puts this decision in a new light. What was the role of politics in shaping this regulatory decision? What pressure was applied?

181) Used environmental regulations to shut down an ambulance while it was taking a patient to the hospital

In May 2013 the Washington Post reported:

A Wednesday shootout on the streets of Washington Highlands left a cop injured and a carjacking suspect dead. But before the suspect expired, he went on an unusual ambulance ride that involved moving him from one vehicle to another on the shoulder of Interstate 295. While this might appear to be another story of Fire and Emergency Medical Services dysfunction, the story is rather more complicated. As WUSA-TV explains, newer-model diesel engines are required by federal regulations to have emission-control features that, in some circumstances, require the motor to shut down for “regeneration” — a process in which the exhaust system burns off trapped soot. The need for regeneration can be unpredictable. The transfer to a second ambulance delayed 34-year-old Nathaniel McRae’s arrival at a hospital by seven minutes. FEMS insists the wait did not play a role in his death.

182) Had “a serious management problem” with his refusal to fire bad workers

A 2011 USA Today article on federal employees states:

“The federal government fired 0.55% of its workers in the budget year that ended Sept. 30 — 11,668 employees in its 2.1 million workforce.”

“White-collar federal workers have almost total job security after a few years on the job. Last year, the government fired none of its 3,000 meteorologists, 2,500 health insurance administrators, 1,000 optometrists, 800 historians or 500 industrial property managers.”

Wow! Those must be excellent workers, right?

Actually, no. The article also says:

“San Francisco State University management professor John Sullivan, an expert on employee turnover, says the low departure rates show a failure to release poor performers and those with obsolete skills. ‘Rather than indicating something positive, rates below 1% in the firing and layoff components would indicate a serious management problem,’ he says.”

A serious management problem?

So who exactly is the highest ranking manager of the federal government?

It’s President Obama.

183) Illegally solicited donations from health insurers

In May 2013, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from health insurers to help pay for Obamacare. Such soliciting is illegal.

184) Chose an economic advisor who wanted roads and bridges to be built by unqualified workers

Obama chose to have Robert Reich be his economic advisor. Regarding Obama’s stimulus, Reich said:

“I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people… And therefore, in my remarks I have suggested to you, and I’m certainly happy to talk about it more, ways in which the money can be — criteria can be set so that they money does go to others…  people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals.”

185) Pressured unions to reduce the amount of health insurance coverage for their employees

In May 2013, the New York Times reported:

Say goodbye to that $500 deductible insurance plan and the $20 co-payment for a doctor’s office visit. They are likely to become luxuries of the past.

Expect to have your blood pressure checked or a prescription filled at a clinic at your office, rather than by your private doctor.

Then blame the so-called Cadillac tax, which penalizes companies that offer high-end health care plans to their employees.

Although the tax does not start until 2018, employers say they have to start now to meet the deadline and they are doing whatever they can to bring down the cost of their plans. Under the law, an employer or health insurer offering a plan that costs more than $10,200 for an individual and $27,500 for a family would typically pay a 40 percent excise tax on the amount exceeding the threshold.

Tom Leibfried, a legislative director for the A.F.L.-C.I.O., one of the unions whose plans are vulnerable to the tax, says the demands that workers pay more for their care is a perennial aspect of labor negotiations. “We’re very concerned about the hollowing out of benefits in general,” he said. “What the excise tax will do is just fuel that.”

186) Falsely said “We believe in the free market”

In June 2013, Obama said,

We don’t think that top-down solutions are the right way to go.  We believe in the free market.  We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations. – See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-we-dont-want-tax-all-businesses-out-business#sthash.NDb17lc6.dpufWe believe in the free market.  We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations.

“We believe in the free market.”

Obama was lying. The free market means that in the business world, it is the customers, not the government, who pick winners and losers. But this list contains a huge number of instances where Obama tried to  use the government to pick winners and losers in the business world.

187) Falsely said “We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations”

In June 2013, Obama said, “We believe in a light touch when it comes to regulations.”

He lied. For example, after Obamacare was passed, Obama added 20,000 extra pages of regulations to to it.

188) Said Catholic schools are “divisive” but did not say the same thing about other religious schools

In June 2013, Obama said:

“If towns remain divided – if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden – that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”

I can understand why a person might criticize religious schools in general – although I myself happen to think that religious schools are a superior alternative to public schools. But for Obama to single out one religion in particular as being divisive, while not saying the same thing about all religious schools in general, is a double standard.

189) Favored a new tax on Christmas trees so the money could be used to subsidize Christmas trees

In November 2011, Obama proposed a new tax on Christmas trees, so that the money could be used to subsidize Christmas trees. If this had been a Rube Goldberg cartoon it would have been funny. But to suggest it as an actual government policy is absurd.

190) Betrayed the people of the city that helped him launch his political career

As part of his effort to get Obamacare passed, Obama repeatedly promised that people could keep their current health insurance if they liked it.

More than any other city, the people of Chicago helped to get Obamacare passed. Chicago is where Obama chose to live when he first got into politics. The people there launched his political career and voted him into office.

And this is how Obama repays them. In May 2013, the Chicago Tribune reported:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to start reducing health insurance coverage next year for more than 30,000 retired city workers and begin shifting them to President Barack Obama’s new federal system.

The move is aimed at saving the city money

Once the phaseout is complete, those retired workers would have to pay for their own health insurance or get subsidies under the Affordable Care Act. The city-subsidized coverage is particularly important to retired workers who aren’t yet eligible for Medicare

Henry Bayer, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31, said the uncertainties of the Affordable Care Act and the state insurance exchanges they would create make the city’s plan hard to assess.

“This uncertainty will cause anxiety and fear for tens of thousands of seniors who gave their working lives to public service — men and women whose retirement savings are already under attack in the name of ‘pension reform.’” Bayer said.

191) Proposed military interventionism in Syria

In June 2013, Obama proposed that the U.S. get involved in Syria’s military conflicts.

192) Planned to use military snipers to shoot innocent lions and cheetahs in the wild

In June 2013, Obama was planning to use military snipers to shoot innocent lions and cheetahs in the wild.

However, after the media reported on his plans, Obama got embarrassed, and cancelled his plans.

193) Refused to fire or prosecute more than 1,000 IRS employees who illegally used their IRS credit cards for their own personal use

During Obama’s first term, more than 1,000 IRS employees illegally used their IRS credit cards for personal purchases, but Obama refused to fire or prosecute them.

194) Defended intelligence chief who lied under oath

In March 2013,  James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, falsely stated under oath that the NSA was not gathering data on millions of U.S. citizens. In June 2013, after it was reported that Clapper had lied under oath, Obama defended him, instead of firing him.

195) Had the Secret Service visit a law abiding citizen who had criticized his policies on Twitter

In April 2013, Obama sent the Secret Service to visit the home of Tom Francois, a law abiding citizen who had criticized Obama’s policies on Twitter.

The Secret Service admitted that Francois had not made any threats against Obama.

196) Had the IRS grant special, illegal favors for his brother’s so-called “charity”

In May 2013, the Dailer Caller reported that the IRS had taken the “unprecedented” step of approving a non-profit application within just one month. In this particular case, the application was from the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a so-called “charity” which was headed by Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s brother.

In addition, the IRS  illegally gave retroactive approval for the organization’s tax exempt status. Prior to getting this approval, the organization had illegally solicited tax deductible donations even though it did not have legal approval to do so.

197) Raised the interest rate on student loans to pay for Obamacare

Obamacare raised the interest rate on students loans from  5.3% to 6.8%. The money is used to fund Obamacare.

198) Refused to fire or prosecute 15 IRS agents who illegally seized the medical records of 10 million people

In March 2011, 15 IRS agents illegally seized the medical records of 10 million people without a warrant. Obama refused to fire or prosecute them.

199) Hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare

In June 2013, it was reported that Obama had hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare.

200) Tried to reward wasteful IRS spending with an increase in funding

In June 2013, Danny Werfel, Obama’s new nominee to head the IRS, asked Congress for an increase in funding. At the same time, NPR reported on this waste of taxpayer money at an IRS conference:

Some of the 2,600 attendees received benefits, including baseball tickets and stays in presidential suites that normally cost $1,500 to $3,500 per night. In addition, 15 outside speakers were paid a total of $135,000 in fees, with one paid $17,000 to talk about “leadership through art,” the committee said.

Considering how the IRS wasted all that money on luxury hotel rooms and worthless speeches, Werfel really had some nerve asking Congress for more money. By proposing to reward wasteful spending with a budget increase, Werfel proved that he is incompetent to head the IRS. The fact that Obama nominated such an incompetent person does not surprise me one bit.

201) Illegally bypassed Congress to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate

As the Obamacare law was written, the employer mandate was to begin in January 2014. This is what the law said when it was passed by the House and Senate, and signed by President Obama.

However, in July 2013, Obama delayed the employer mandate part of Obamacare until January 2015. Obama did this without approval from Congress.

For Obama to change a law that was passed by Congress, without first getting approval from Congress, is a violation of the Presidential oath that Obama took to uphold and defend the Constitution.

What Obama did here is an action of a dictator, not an action of a President whose power is limited by a written constitution.

If Obama can get away with this, then it sets a horribly dangerous precedent, and means that the President can arbitrarily make any change to any law that has been passed by Congress, without first getting approval from Congress.

202) Made it too hard for some doctors to continue their practices

In July 2013, ABC News reported that some doctors were shutting down their practices in response to Obamacare.

Dr. Robert WcWilliams, an obstetrician/gynecologist with more than 5,000 patients, said:

“It’s going to be run by bureaucrats – and it’s going to be run by politicians – who have no idea what is in your best interests, then I’m getting out.”

203) Falsely told Africans that contaminated water is a smaller problem than global warming

In July 2013, while speaking in Johannesburg, South Africa, President Obama said that global warming was “the biggest challenge we have environmentally” and that it was worse than “dirty water, dirty air.”

However, according to the World Health Organization, while global warming kills 140,000 people each year, air pollution kills 3 million people per year.

According to UNESCO, each year, contaminated water causes 4 billion cases of diarrhea, 120,000 cases of cholera, 300 million cases of malaria, 12 million cases of typhoid, 6 million cases of trachoma, 200 million cases of schistosomiesis, and more than 1 billion incidents of intestinal parasites.

You know what’s worse than global warming? How about living your entire life without ever having access to a toilet?

The World Health Organization says that dirty water is “the leading cause of disease and death around the world.”

That Obama would downplay these problems shows how scientifically illiterate he is.

That he would do so while giving a speech in Africa, which has the highest rate of water borne illness of any continent, shows how thoughtless and insensitive he is.

204) Spent $630,000 of taxpayers’ money to get more Facebook “likes”

In July 2013, it was reported that Obama had spent $630,000 of taxpayers’ money in order to get more Facebook “likes.”

205) Declared that hacking was an act of war, then hacked the EU

In 2011, the Obama administration issued a statement which said that when one country hacked another country’s computers, the hacking constituted an “act of war.”

In July 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had hacked computers which were owned by the European Union.

206) Said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”

In Florida, after a school security camera showed Trayvon Martin marking graffiti, a search of his backpack showed that it contained 12 pieces of women’s jewelry, including silver wedding rings, and earrings with diamonds. The backpack also had a screwdriver, which is often used as a tool by burglars. Martin said that the jewelry belonged to a friend, but refused to say who that friend was.

Why would a teenage boy bring a backpack full of silver wedding rings and diamond earrings to school? Do Martin’s millions of defenders really think that he was not a burglar?

The fact that Martin was in possession of stolen jewelry at school is perfectly in line with George Zimmerman’s claim on the 911 call that Martin was acting suspiciously. And there had been quite a few burglaries in the area recently.

Also on the 911 call, Zimmerman had said that Martin was acting as if he was on drugs. Martin’s autopsy showed that there was THC in his system. And while other parts of marijuana can stay in the system for weeks after it’s smoked, the THC only stays in the person’s system for a few hours. Therefore, Martin was indeed high when Zimmerman saw him.

So Trayvon Martin was a burglar, used illegal drugs, broke Zimmerman’s nose, and smashed Zimmerman’s head against the concrete.

And how does Obama respond to all of this?

Obama said:

“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

207) Falsely said that Secretary of State John Kerry had not been on his yacht during the regime change in Egypt

In July 2013, the Obama administration falsely said that Secretary of State John Kerry had not been on his yacht during the regime change in Egypt.

Evan after CBS news presented the Obama administration with photographic evidence that Kerry had been on his yacht during that time, the Obama administration still continued to falsely claim that Kerry had not been on his yacht.

CBS News reported:

On Thursday night, CBS News obtained a photo of Kerry on his boat and sent it to the State Department, asking whether they still stand by their denial that Kerry was on a boat.

The response: “Yes.”

208) Said “the planet will boil over” if African citizens adopt a first world standard of living

In July 2013, Obama said “the planet will boil over” if African citizens adopt a first world standard of living.

“the planet will boil over

209) “Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.”

In June 2013, Rasmussen conducted a poll to find out what people considered to be the “nation’s top terror threat.”

Reporting on the results of the poll, Rasmussen wrote:

“Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.”

210) Illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close, which destroyed 120,000 jobs

In 2009, Obama illegally forced 2,200 privately owned auto dealerships to close. These dealerships had employed 120,000 people.

211) Subsidized the production of alcoholic beverages

In June 2013, Breitbart reported:

The USDA Rural Development agency also touted a program to subsidize the Wine Barn LLC in “marketing and increasing production of its Kansas produced wine.” That cost $25,000. The USDA Rural Development also said it would hand $300,000 to the Mackinaw Trail Winery in Michigan, $100,000 for the Appleton Creek Winery in New York, $162,500 for the Old Westminster Winery in Maryland, and tens of thousands of dollars to wineries in Nebraska and Iowa.

Liquor is the name of the game for the USDA, apparently – they’re also subsidizing the production of vodka in North Carolina, Bloody Mary mix in West Virginia, and hard cider in Virginia.

212) Gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to illegal aliens who all used the same address

In 2011, the IRS gave 23,994 tax refunds worth a total of $46,378,040 to illegal aliens who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga.

213) Sued private businesses for using “racist” criminal background checks to screen employees

In June 2013, the Obama administration filed lawsuits against Dollar General and BMW for using criminal background checks to screen employees. The Obama administration claimed that such background checks were “racist.”

214) Used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against George Zimmerman

In March and April of 2012, Obama used tax money to pay federal employees to organize protests against George Zimmerman.

215) Illegally continued giving foreign aid to Egypt after it had a coup

Federal law requires that U.S.  foreign aid to Egypt be ended if and when Egypt has a coup. However, after Egypt had a coup in July 2013, the Obama administration said that it would continue giving foreign aid to Egypt.

216) Broke promise to end Bush’s surveillance of U.S. citizens who were not suspected of committing a crime

In August 2007, Obama promised that he would end Bush’s surveillance of U.S. citizens who were not suspected of committing a crime. However, in June 2013, such surveillance was still being conducted.

217) Spent $3 million to study the health risks of dating Mexican prostitutes

In July 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $3 million to study the health risks of dating Mexican prostitutes.

218) Lied about the cost of IRS conferences

In June 2013 it was reported that the Obama administration had lied about the cost of IRS conferences. While the actual cost was $50 million, the Obama administration had claimed that the cost was only 1% of that mount.

219) Spent $890,000 per year on service fees for bank accounts that had no money

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was spending $890,000 each year on service fees for bank accounts that did not have any money in them. At the time, the government had 13,712 empty accounts which it was supposed to have closed, but which it had kept open anyway.

220) Spent $34 million to construct a new military headquarters in Afghanistan after U.S. military commanders said they did not want it

After U.S. military commanders said in 2010 that they did not want a new headquarters in Afghanistan, the Obama administration spent $34 million to build it anyway.

221) Falsely said that his scandals were “phony”

In July 2013, Obama said

“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball.”

These scandals are not “phony.” I have cited a huge number of sources in this list to show that these scandals are real.

222) Falsely guaranteed that people could keep their doctor

Before Obamacare was passed, Obama said:

“Here is a guarantee that I’ve made… If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.”

However, in July 2013, the Obama administration said that people “may” be able to keep their doctor.

223) Falsely said the auto bailouts prevented Detroit from going bankrupt

Obama falsely stated that the auto bailouts prevented Detroit from going bankrupt.

224) Illegally seized a privately owned gun from a law abiding citizen

After a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty, the Obama administration announced that it would seize his gun. This violated the double jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution, as well as the takings clause of the fifth amendment.

225) Broke his promise to have real time verifiability of Obamacare subsidies

In July 2013, Investor’s Business Daily wrote:

Meanwhile, the administration tacitly admitted last week that its promise of real-time verification of a consumer’s eligibility to buy subsidized coverage at an ObamaCare exchange wasn’t exactly panning out.

Under ObamaCare, only those who don’t have access to “affordable” insurance at work can buy coverage in an exchange, and only those below certain income levels are eligible for tax subsidies.

Rather than a high-tech instant check, the administration told states they could simply take the applicants’ word for it when it comes to their employer-provided coverage, as well as their “projected annual household income,” without the need for “further verification.”

226) Signed health care reform whose rules contradicted each other

Obamacare allows insurance companies to charge higher premiums for smokers. At the same time, it prohibits insurance companies from charging more than three times as much for older people as it does for younger people. In June 2013, Obama’s computer programmers said that they had been unable to write a computer program that simultaneously agreed with both of these rules.

227) Signed a health care reform plan that is so horrible that even the IRS agents who run it don’t want to participate in it

Obama hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare.

But Obamacare is so awful that even the IRS agents who run it don’t want to participate in it.

In July 2013, the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents the IRS employees who will be running Obamacare, provided a form letter to its members to send to their Congressmen. The letter stated:

“I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.”

When asked about this, IRS chief Daniel Werfel responded by saying:

“I don’t want to speak for the NTEU, but I’ll offer a perspective as a federal employee myself and a federal employee at the IRS. And that is, we have right now as employees of the government, of the IRS, affordable health care coverage. I think the ACA was designed to provide an option or an alternative for individuals that do not. And all else being equal, I think if you’re an individual who is satisfied with your health care coverage, you’re probably in a better position to stick with that coverage than go through the change of moving into a different environment and going through that process. So I think for a federal employee, I think more likely, and I would — can speak for myself, I would prefer to stay with the current policy that I’m pleased with rather than go through a change if I don’t need to go through that change.”

228) Tried to tax small businesses at a higher rate than corporations

Obama raised the top tax rate on small businesses to 39.6%, and tried to lower the top tax rate on corporations to 28%.

229) Illegally prevented individual employees of small businesses from choosing their own plan during the first year of Obamacare

Obamacare requires that individual employees of small businesses be allowed to choose their own insurance plan during the first year of Obamacare. However, in March 2013, the Obama administration announced that it would not be allowing them to make this choice during the first year.

230) Falsely said that Obamacare had not hurt jobs

In July 2013, the Obama administration said that Obamacare had not hurt jobs.

However, in the real world, in response to the medical device tax that is part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers have announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs). In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts. The New York Times reported that Obamacare “sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment.” In response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, some restaurants have announced plans to switch some of their employees from full time to part time, including some franchises of Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, White Castle, and Fatburger. Community College of Allegheny County switched 200 professors and 200 other employees from full time to part time in response to Obamacare. Clint Benjamin, an English professor at Community College of Allegheny County, said that this would reduce his own monthly pay by $600. Also in response to the employer mandate of Obamacare, other colleges have announced plans to switch some of their employees from full time to part time, including Florida’s Palm Beach State College, Ohio’s Youngstown State University, and New Jersey’s Kean University. In Virginia, thousands of government employees had their hours reduced because of Obamacare. The Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh reduced the hours of 48 of its employees in response to Obamacare. Regal Entertainment Group, the largest chain of movie theaters in the country, announced that it would be switching thousands of its employees from full time to part time in response to the Obamacare mandate. Utah’s Granite School District reduced the hours of 1,200 of its employees in response to Obamacare. In response to Obamacare, many Wal-Mart stores have stopped hiring full time workers. In response to Obamacare, Forever 21 reduced its employees’ hours. As of September 2013, more than 200 public-sector employers had reduced their employees’ hours in response to Obamacare. Sea World reduced the weekly hours of its part time employees from 32 to 28 in response to Obamacare. Lands’ End limited its part time employees to 29 hours per week in response to Obamacare. As of September 2013, at least 34 universities and colleges had reduced some of their employees’ hours in response to Obamacare. In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, Indiana University would be laying off 50 of its employees and switching them to a temp agency. In July 2013, leaders of the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE sent a letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi which said that Obamacare will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class… the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation.”

231) Falsely said that health insurance premiums would be reduced by $2,500 per family by the end of his first term

In February 2008, Obama said:

We are going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.”

However, by the time his first term was over, family premiums had gotten bigger, not smaller. The increase was $3,065 per family.

232) Illegally gave Obamacare waiver to Massachusetts

In August 2013, Obama gave an Obamacare waiver to Massachusetts.

This waiver was illegal for two reasons. First, the waiver was not approved by the U.S. Congress. Second, the U.S. Constitution requires that the federal government treat all states the same.

233) Betrayed the unions that helped him to get elected

In January 2013, the Wall Street Journal reported:

Some Unions Grow Wary of Health Law They Backed

Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administration’s health-care overhaul when it was up for debate. Now that the law is rolling out, some are turning sour.

Union leaders say many of the law’s requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive. Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and prescription drugs used as cost-containment measures in many health-care plans. It also allows children to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26.

Some 20 million Americans are covered by the health-care plans at issue

Top officers at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the AFL-CIO and other large labor groups plan to keep pressing the Obama administration to expand the federal subsidies to these jointly run plans, warning that unionized employers may otherwise drop coverage. A handful of unions say they already have examined whether it makes sense to shift workers off their current plans

“We are going back to the administration to say that this is not acceptable,” said Ken Hall, general secretary-treasurer for the Teamsters, which has 1.6 million members and dependents in health-care plans. Other unions involved in the push include the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union and Unite Here

Sheet Metal Workers Local 85 in Atlanta, which has about 1,900 members. Next year it must lift the $250,000 annual cap on the amount it will pay for medical claims. The law’s requirements will add between 50 cents to $1 an hour to the cost of members’ compensation package

234) Illegally changed Obamacare to benefit members of Congress and their staff

Obamacare was passed by the House and Senate, and signed by President Obama.

Three years later, members of Congress and their staff complained that Obamacare was going to cost them a lot of money, and said that this would likely cause a brain drain among their staff. In response to this, Obama made changes to Obamacare so that these things would not happen. However, Obama’s actions were illegal, because he made these changes without Congress voting on them first.

The New York Times wrote of this:

… the language of the health care law requires Congressional employees to obtain health insurance through an exchange created by the law, but other parts of the federal legal code restrict the ability of the federal government to pay the usual employer share for group insurance programs approved by the Office of Personnel Management.

A straightforward reading of the law thus means that Congressional staff members, starting in January 2014, will have to obtain insurance through the Affordable Care Act but pay for it on their own without the normal contribution from their employer — Congress. This would be a multi-thousand-dollar income hit for those affected… many… would potentially feel the pain, giving rise to concerns over a potential brain drain of Congressional staff members finding other employment.

… the federal personnel office initially ruled that Congressional staff members would not be eligible for the subsidies, and then changed this decision under pressure from the White House…

235) Told General Mills to stop making true claims about Cheerios

For quite some time, advertisements for the breakfast cereal Cheerios made the true and accurate claim that eating Cheerios lowers a person’s cholesterol.

However, even though this claim is true and accurate, in May 2009, the Obama administration ordered General Mills, the maker of Cheerios, to stop making this claim in its commercials.

236) Illegally avoided enforcing the required income verification of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges

Even though Obamacare requires the government to verify the income of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges, in August 2013 it was reported that Obama would not be verifying their incomes.

237) Placed a 40% tax on so-called “Cadillac” insurance plans

Obamacare includes a 40% tax on so-called “Cadillac” insurance plans. In August 2013, unions that supported the passage of Obamacare complained about this tax.

238) Made medical care for special needs children more expensive

In August 2013, it was reported that Obamacare would make it more expensive for the parents of special needs children to pay for their children’s medical equipment and specialized private schools that cater to their medical needs.

239) Responded to the Benghazi attack by going back to bed, and then later got up and headed off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser

In September 2012, after Obama found out that U.S. citizens were being killed in Benghazi, Libya, he went back to bed. After he got up in the morning, he went off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

240) Illegally delayed the caps on out of pocket health care payments without Congressional approval

As it was passed by the House and Senate and signed by Obama, Obamacare sets caps on the out of pocket payments that people pay for health care, and these caps were legally required to take effect in January 2014.

However, in August 2013, Obama delayed these caps until January 2015.

Because Obama imposed this delay without it first being approved by Congress, Obama’s action was illegal. The President does not have the legal authority to change an Act that was passed by Congress, without that change first being approved by Congress. What Obama did here is not the act of a President whose power is limited by a written constitution, but is, instead, the action of a dictator.

241) Holds a double standard when it comes to supporting “gun free” zones

In December 2012, a petition at whitehouse.gov stated:

“Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them”

“Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.”

The Obama administration rejected the proposal.

242) Outlawed the low-premium, high-deductible health insurance that some people prefer

Obamacare bans to the low-premium, high-deductible health insurance that some people prefer.

243) Lied about how many people he had helped to protect from mortgage fraud

In August 2013, it was reported that less than one month before the 2012 election, the Obama administration had lied about the number of people that it had helped to protect from mortgage fraud, as well as the total amount of money involved. In August 2013, when the truth was revealed, Newsbusters reported:

“Thus, the number of defendants fell by 80% from what DOJ claimed less than a month before the presidential election. The number of victims fell by 76%. The amount of losses involved dropped by over 90%.”

244) Falsely said the NSA review was being conducted by an “independent” body

In August 2013, Obama said that he would establish an “independent” investigation of NSA surveillance.

However, three days later, it was reported that this so-called “independent” investigation would be run by James Clapper, who had falsely testified to Congress that the NSA was not collecting information on U.S. citizens.

245) Used tax money to pay for a separate flight just for his dog

In August 2013, Obama forced taxpayers to pay for a separate airplane flight just for his dog Bo.

246) Closed off public roads so he could buy books

In August 2013, Obama had public roads closed to the public so he could go to a bookstore. Why didn’t he just order the books online?

247) Gave illegal EPA exemption to one oil refinery, and would not say which refinery it was

The EPA has a very expensive ethanol mandate that applies to all oil refineries.  However, in August 2013, it was reported that Obama had given one oil refinery an exemption from this mandate.

This exemption is illegal for two reasons. First, the exemption was not approved by Congress. And secondly, the Constitution requires that federal laws apply equally to everyone.

In addition, Obama refused to say which refinery it was that received this exemption, which is completely contrary to his repeated promises of “transparency.”

248) Created new fines for charitable hospitals that give treatment to uninsured people

In August 2013, it was reported that Obamacare creates new fines for charitable hospitals that give treatment to uninsured people.

249) Blamed poverty on zip codes instead of on behavior

In July 2013, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said:

“Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest-hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the ZIP Code she grows up in. This is simply wrong.”

However, let’s consider two groups of people in the U.S. The first group has a poverty rate of 2%. The second group has a poverty rate of 76%.

The first group consists of people who followed all three of these steps:

1) Finish high school.

2) Get a full-time job.

3) Wait until age 21 and get married before having children.

The second group consists of people who followed zero of those three steps.

Among people who follow all three of these steps, the poverty rate is 2%.

Among people who follow zero of these steps, the poverty rate is 76%.

(My source for that information is this article, which refers to this PDF, and the relevant data is on page 15 of the PDF. The study uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau.)

250) Nominated a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama fundraiser to head the FCC

In May 2013, Obama nominated Tom Wheeler to head the FCC. Wheeler had previously been the head of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which is a lobbying organization for the cable TV industry. He had also been the head of CTIA, a lobbying organization for cellphone carriers. In addition, he had also been a fundraiser for Obama.

251) Tried to violate defendants’ right to a fair trial

In August 2013, Reuters reported:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to “recreate” the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant’s Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don’t know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence – information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.

“I have never heard of anything like this at all,” said Nancy Gertner, a Harvard Law School professor who served as a federal judge from 1994 to 2011. Gertner and other legal experts said the program sounds more troubling than recent disclosures that the National Security Agency has been collecting domestic phone records. The NSA effort is geared toward stopping terrorists; the DEA program targets common criminals, primarily drug dealers.

“It is one thing to create special rules for national security,” Gertner said. “Ordinary crime is entirely different. It sounds like they are phonying up investigations.”

252) Threatened internet service providers with contempt of court if they did not install surveillance software

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had pressured internet service providers to install surveillance software, so that it could monitor internet traffic without a warrant. Internet service providers who did not cave in to this pressure were threatened by the Obama administration with contempt of court.  This violated the Constitution’s ban on warrantless searches. In addition, the executive branch does not have the legal authority to declare contempt of court, as this power is reserved exclusively for the judicial branch.

253) Sued Louisiana to keep low income blacks trapped in bad schools, and lied about why he did it

In August 2013, the Obama administration sued Louisiana to try to bring an end to its school voucher program – a program which had just been passed in 2012.

Under the Louisiana program, both of the following criteria had to be met in order for a student to get a school voucher. First, the student must come from a family whose income is below 250% of the poverty level. And second, the current public school that the student is attending must be rated as “C” or below.

86% of students who received vouchers had used those vouchers to flee from public schools which had been rated as “D” or “F.”

Only the most vulnerable children were eligible for the vouchers – the poorest students attending the worst schools.

Obama’s reason for filing the lawsuit was that “many of those vouchers impeded the desegregation process.”

However, in response to Obama’s claim that the vouchers discriminated against blacks, Louisiana Education Superintendent John White pointed out that almost all of the students using the vouchers were black, and said that “it’s a little ridiculous” for Obama to claim that these vouchers caused discrimination against blacks. The Washington Post reported that 90% of the students who receive the vouchers are black.

It’s also worth noting that only students whose parents request such vouchers are eligible to participate in the voucher program. Obama is therefore claiming that parents want their own children to be discriminated against. Obama is extremely wrong on this. These parents do not want their children to be discriminated against. In reality, what these parents want is for their children to have a chance at a better education.

This also makes Obama a hypocrite, because while he was living in both Chicago and Washington D.C., he always sent his own children to private schools. Does Obama really want us to believe that he subjected his own children to racial discrimination by sending them to private schools?

254) Encouraged 40,000 longshoremen to quit the AFL-CIO

In September 2013, it was reported that 40,000 longshoremen had quit the AFL-CIO, and that they had cited Obamacare as one of their reasons for doing so.

255) Paid $67 million to so-called “volunteers”

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama has paid $67 million to so-called “volunteers” to teach people about Obamacare.

256) Illegally used Obamacare to fund pre-K education without approval from Congress

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama had illegally used Obamacare to fund pre-K education without approval from Congress.

257) Signed so-called “hunger-free” act that left students feeling hungry

In December 2010, Obama signed the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act,” which limited school lunches to a maximum of 850 calories. Students complained that this so-called “hunger-free” program left them feeling hungry.

Meanwhile, the lunch that Obama served to his guests at his 2013 inauguration contained more than 3,000 calories.

258) Signed health care reform that is so terrible that less than 3% of federal employees want to join it

In August 2013, it was reported that less than 3% of federal employees wanted to participate in Obamacare.

259) Avoided doing background checks on Obamacare “navigators”

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration would not be doing background checks on Obamacare “navigators,” despite the fact that these “navigators” would have access to people’s personal, private, and financial information.

260) Illegally paid White House interns less than minimum wage

In June 2013, a federal court ruled that Fox Searchlight Pictures had violated the minimum wage law by using unpaid interns. Two months later, it was reported that the Obama administration was using unpaid interns. In addition to this being illegal, it also makes Obama a hypocrite, because he had previously spoken out in favor of raising the minimum wage.

261) Said broccoli was his favorite food

In July 2013, Obama said that broccoli was his favorite food. However, before he made this claim, even though the media showed many pictures of him eating, and even though there were many articles published about the foods that he ate, as far as I know, none of those pictures or articles ever showed or mentioned him eating broccoli. While this may seem trivial, it shows that there is nothing – absolutely nothing at all – that Obama is not willing to lie about.

262)  Illegally missed half of Obamacare’s deadlines

In August 2013, it was reported that Obama had illegally missed 41 of Obamacare’s 82 deadlines.

263) Tried to give illegal Obamacare subsidies to unions without Congressional approval

In August 2013 it was reported that Obama was trying to give illegal Obamacare subsidies to unions, without approval from Congress.

264) Made it harder for writers, actors, artists, and musicians to obtain health insurance

In September 2013, the Weekly Standard reported:

Nancy Pelosi waxed rhapsodic in 2010 as she imagined the benefits of Obamacare: “Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.”

But as Obamacare begins to kick in, artists, photographers, writers, and other members of the “creative class” who have access to health insurance programs through numerous professional organizations will lose that coverage.

Up until now professional organizations have worked with insurance providers to craft reduced-rate plans for their members. But thanks to the fine print in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), on January 1, 2014, many of these plans will fail to pass legal muster.

The College Art Association website posted a notice this month: “The New York Life Insurance Company recently informed CAA that it will no longer offer catastrophic healthcare coverage previously available to CAA members.”

The Entertainment Industry Group Insurance Trust (TEIGIT) website posts the following notice: “All individual and/or Sole Proprietor Health Insurance will terminate January 1, 2014. This includes plans acquired as Members of our Affiliated Associations & their groups.” Those affiliated associations include the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the Dramatists Guild, the Graphic Arts Guild, NY Women in Film and Television, and many others.

This will affect huge numbers of freelance artists, musicians, disc jockeys, and so forth.

freelance artists, designers, and musicians forced to enter the state-run exchanges are far more likely to see their rates go up

Pelosi’s vision of a world full of carefree artists, musicians, and writers is a mirage and becoming fainter the closer we get to January 1.

265) Banned the sale of flavored cigarettes, but gave an exemption to the most dangerous flavor

In September 2009, the Obama administration banned the sale of flavored cigarettes, but exempted menthol from the ban. Although I am opposed to this ban, it’s this exemption that I find to be the most troubling. If Obama thinks that flavored cigarettes are so dangerous that they deserve to be banned, then why did he exempt one particular flavor?

The Obama administration later announced that menthol cigarettes were more dangerous than other flavors such as cherry, cloves, chocolate, coconut, and cinnamon, but still continued to exempt menthol from the ban. If Obama thinks that flavored cigarettes are so dangerous that they should be banned, then why did he knowingly continue to give an exemption to the most dangerous flavor?

266) Tried to censor the Washington Post

In August 2013, the Washington Post reported:

The Obama administration referred all questions for this article to John DeLong, the NSA’s director of compliance, who answered questions freely in a 90-minute interview. DeLong and members of the NSA communications staff said he could be quoted “by name and title” on some of his answers after an unspecified internal review. The Post said it would not permit the editing of quotes. Two days later, White House and NSA spokesmen said that none of DeLong’s comments could be quoted on the record and sent instead a prepared statement in his name. The Post declines to accept the substitute language as quotations from DeLong.

267) Dumbed down math education to make wrong answers acceptable

In August 2013, the Daily Caller reported:

Quick: what’s 3 x 4?

If you said 11 — or, hell, if you said 7, pi, or infinity squared — that’s just fine under the Common Core, the new national curriculum that the Obama administration will impose on American public school students this fall.

In a pretty amazing YouTube video, Amanda August, a curriculum coordinator in a suburb of Chicago called Grayslake, explains that getting the right answer in math just doesn’t matter as long as kids can explain the necessarily faulty reasoning they used to get to that wrong answer.

“Even if they said, ’3 x 4 was 11,’ if they were able to explain their reasoning and explain how they came up with their answer really in, umm, words and oral explanation, and they showed it in the picture but they just got the final number wrong, we’re really more focused on the how,” August says in the video.

268) Broke his promise to label genetically modified food

Before the 2008 election, Obama promised to require labeling of genetically modified food. He broke that promise.

269) Asked the Supreme Court to allow warrantless cell phone searches

In August 2013, the Obama administration asked the U.S Supreme Court to allow warrantless cell phone searches.

270) Used an armed SWAT team to check for water pollution

In September 2013, the Alaska Dispatch reported:

When agents with the Alaska Environmental Crimes Task Force surged out of the wilderness around the remote community of Chicken wearing body armor and jackets emblazoned with POLICE in big, bold letters, local placer miners didn’t quite know what to think.

Did it really take eight armed men and a squad-size display of paramilitary force to check for dirty water? Some of the miners, who run small businesses, say they felt intimidated.

Miners suggest it might have been better all around if officials had just shown up at the door — as they used to do — and said they wanted to check the water.

The EPA has refused to publicly explain why it used armed officers as part of what it called a “multi-jurisdictional” investigation of possible Clean Water Act violations in the area.

271) Purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for the Department of Homeland Security to use in the U.S.

In March 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition for the Department of Homeland Security to use in the U.S.

272) Released 2,837 convicted sex offenders from prison

In September 2013, the Obama administration released 2,837 convicted sex offenders from prison.

Although the Obama administration had released these sex offenders in response to a court order to alleviate prison overcrowding, it could have released non-violent drug offenders instead. See #7 on this list for how Obama has carried out the biggest war against medical marijuana of any President in history.

Apparently, Obama thinks that people with doctors’ prescriptions for medical marijuana are a bigger threat than rapists and child molesters.

273) Refused to fire or prosecute Obamacare employee who released private info of 2,400 people

In September 2013, it was reported that an Obamacare employee had released the private information of 2,400 people. Obama refused to fire or prosecute this Obamacare employee.

274) Tried to monitor 80% of all credit card transactions

In September 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration was trying to monitor 80% of all credit card transactions.

275) Tried to censor the AFL-CIO

In September 2013, Associated Press reported:

The AFL-CIO on Wednesday approved a resolution critical of parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law in spite of efforts by White House officials to discourage the labor federation from making its concerns so prominent.

The strongly worded resolution says the Affordable Care Act will drive up the costs of union-sponsored health plans to the point that workers and employers are forced to abandon them. Labor unions still support the law’s overall goals of reducing health costs and bringing coverage to all Americans, the resolution says, but adds that the law is being implemented in a way that is “highly disruptive” to union health care plans.

Some individual unions have complained about the law’s impact for months. The resolution marks the first time the nation’s largest labor federation has gone on record embracing that view. Unions were among the most enthusiastic backers of the law when it passed in 2010.

A labor official told The Associated Press that White House officials had been calling labor leaders for days to urge them not to voice their concerns in the form of a resolution.

276) Falsely said that he had not declared a “red line” on Syria

In August 2012, while talking about Syria, Obama said:

“A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.”

However, in September 2013, while talking about Syria, Obama said:

“I didn’t set a red line.”

277) Falsely gave himself credit for John Kerry’s idea about Syria

In September 2013, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry suggested that Syria turn over all of its chemical weapons to an international body.

The Obama’s administration initially responded to Kerry’s statement by saying that Kerry had not been serious, and that his statement had just been a “rhetorical” answer to a hypothetical question.

However, after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Kerry’s idea made sense, Obama falsely stated that he had talked about the idea a week earlier.

278) Made it more difficult and bureaucratic for restaurant employees to collect automatic tips from parties of eight or more

In September 2013, the Obama administration announced new paperwork requirements for restaurants that collect automatic tips from parties of eight or more. These new regulations create additional paperwork for restaurants each and every time a party of eight or more leaves an automatic tip. It also means that restaurant employees would have to wait extra time to receive these automatic tips from parties of eight or more. In addition, in some cases, restaurant employees might not get any tip at all from some parties of eight or more, because their employer might decide that the paperwork is too burdensome, and stop collecting automatic tips altogether.

There’s also the fact that Obama imposed these new regualations without approval from Congress, which means that Obama’s actions were illegal.

279) Secretly and illegally reversed NSA restrictions without approval from Congress

In September 2013, the Washington Post reported:

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Together the permission to search and to keep data longer expanded the NSA’s authority in significant ways without public debate or any specific authority from Congress. The enlarged authority is part of a fundamental shift in the government’s approach to surveillance: collecting first, and protecting Americans’ privacy later.

The court decision allowed the NSA “to query the vast majority” of its e-mail and phone call databases using the e-mail addresses and phone numbers of Americans and legal residents without a warrant, according to Bates’s opinion.

The court in 2008 imposed a wholesale ban on such searches at the government’s request, said Alex Joel, civil liberties protection officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). The government included this restriction “to remain consistent with NSA policies and procedures that NSA applied to other authorized collection activities,” he said.

280) Encouraged employers to use temp agencies

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, Indiana University would be laying off 50 of its employees and switching them to a temp agency.

In June 2013, Time magazine wrote:

Why Temp Agencies Are Learning to Love the Affordable Care Act

Staffing companies like Robert Half International and On Assignment have seen their stock prices soar since President Obama’s reelection in November, as the election made it nearly certain that the implementation of the law would continue as planned. “In general [Obamacare] is viewed as something that will lead to increases in the penetration rate of temporary workers,” says Tobey Sommer, an analyst with SunTrust Robinson Humphrey. Firms like Robert Half International are especially well positioned to benefit from the law, Sommer says, because they specialize in small and medium-sized companies, the very sort that may be using temporary workers to help them stay below that all-important 50-worker mark.

There’s also an opening for staffing companies to present themselves as experts in the labor rules of the Obamacare law, and as a resource that other businesses can turn to for help with its many rules and regulations. “The increasing burden of these regulations will cause some clients to throw up their hands and say, ‘I can’t deal with all of this,” says Sommer. And when that happens, a full-service staffing company could be the perfect place to seek help navigating the unknown waters of Obamacare.

281) Encouraged layoffs of health care workers

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, Emory Healthcare, which is in Georgia, would be laying off more than 100 of its employees.

In September 2013, it was reported that in response to Obamacare, the Cleveland Clinic would be laying off some of its employees.

282) Encouraged insurance companies to reduce their customers’ choices of doctors and hospitals

In September 2013, the Los Angeles Times reported:

The doctor can’t see you now.

Consumers may hear that a lot more often after getting health insurance under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

To hold down premiums, major insurers in California have sharply limited the number of doctors and hospitals available to patients in the state’s new health insurance market opening Oct. 1.

New data reveal the extent of those cuts in California, a crucial test bed for the federal healthcare law.

These diminished medical networks are fueling growing concerns that many patients will still struggle to get care despite the nation’s biggest healthcare expansion in half a century.

Consumers could see long wait times, a scarcity of specialists and loss of a longtime doctor.

In September 2013, the New York Times reported:

… under President Obama’s health care law… many insurers are significantly limiting the choices of doctors and hospitals available to consumers.

From California to Illinois to New Hampshire, and in many states in between, insurers are… restricting the number of providers who will treat patients in their new health plans.

… insurers… have created smaller networks of doctors and hospitals than are typically found in commercial insurance.

Consumers should be prepared for “much tighter, narrower networks” of doctors and hospitals, said Adam M. Linker, a health policy analyst at the North Carolina Justice Center, a statewide advocacy group.

In a new study, the Health Research Institute of PricewaterhouseCoopers, the consulting company, says that “insurers passed over major medical centers” when selecting providers in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, among other states.

Juan Carlos Davila, an executive vice president of Blue Shield of California, said the network for its exchange plans… did not include the five medical centers of the University of California.

Daniel R. Hawkins Jr., a senior vice president of the National Association of Community Health Centers, which represents 9,000 clinics around the country, said: “… insurers have shown little interest in including us in their provider networks.”

Dr. Bruce Siegel, the president of America’s Essential Hospitals, formerly known as the National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems, said insurers were telling his members: “We don’t want you in our network. We are worried about having your patients, who are sick and have complicated conditions.”

In New Hampshire, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, a unit of WellPoint, one of the nation’s largest insurers, has touched off a furor by excluding 10 of the state’s 26 hospitals from the health plans that it will sell through the insurance exchange.

283) Encouraged a hospital to close

In September 2013, WCYB reported:

Jonesville, Va. – A local hospital is closing its doors.

Wellmont Health System is citing unprecedented changes in health care as the reason for closing Lee Regional Medical Center.

Company officials say three reasons led to the decision reimbursement cuts associated with the Affordable Care Act, extremely low community use of the hospital and a lack of consistent physician coverage.

Lee Regional will cease all operations on October 1.

284) Required doctors to ask patients sexual questions and put their answers in an electronic database

In September 2013, it was reported that Obamacare requires doctors to ask patients personal questions about their sex lives, and to put their answers into an electronic database. Doctors who avoid doing this will be penalized.

Dr. Adam Budzikowski, a New York cardiologist, said these sex question were “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive,” and that he could not think of any reason why a cardiologist would need such information.

Dr. Richard Amerling, an associate professor of medicine at Albert Einstein Medical College, said that a patient’s medical record should be “a story created by you and your doctor solely for your treatment and benefit,” and that Obamacare turns doctor appointments “into an interrogation, and the data will not be confidential.”

The New York Civil Liberties Union said that these requirements were a violation of patients’ privacy.

The Obama administration said that patients who wished to keep their information out of the electronic database should pay in cash.

285) Listed wrong prices for Obamacare

On September 20, 2013, just 10 days before the Obamacare exchanges were legally required to be ready, it was reported that they had the wrong prices.

286) Made it easier for people to commit health care fraud

In September 2013, CNBC reported:

Deep staff cuts are hitting a federal agency responsible for investigating health care fraud just as Obamacare is due to kick in, leaving less people to investigate an ever-growing crime that costs taxpayers billions of dollars.

And in a perverse twist, the funding cuts at the Health and Human Services Department’s Inspector General’s Office might save money in the short term for the U.S. taxpayer. But over the long run, more money that could have been recouped from the fraud cases now going unpursued, is being left on the table, the agency said.

For every $1 spent on health-care fraud probes, nearly $8 is recouped in fines, restitution or settlements, according to HHS.

287) Included a so-called “family glitch” in his health care reform

In September 2013, USA Today reported:

A so-called “family glitch” in the 2010 health care law threatens to cost some families thousands of dollars in health insurance costs and leave up to 500,000 children without coverage, insurance and health care analysts say.

 That’s unless Congress fixes the problem, which seems unlikely given the House’s latest move Friday to strip funding from the law, which is also called the Affordable Care Act.

Congress defined “affordable” as 9.5% or less of an employee’s household income, mostly to make sure people did not leave their workplace plans for subsidized coverage through the exchanges. But the “error” was that it only applies to the employee — and not his or her family. So, if an employer offers a woman affordable insurance, but doesn’t provide it for her family, they cannot get subsidized help through the state health exchanges.

That can make a huge difference; the Kaiser Family Foundation said an average plan for an individual is about $5,600, but it goes up to $15,700 for families.

288) Made it harder for Canadian politicians to get health care

Canada has had so-called “universal health care” for a long time.

However, when Robert Bourassa, the premier of Quebec, Canada, needed cancer treatment, he came to the United States and paid for his health care with his own money.

And when Canadian Liberal MP Belinda Stronach needed cancer treatment, she also came to the United States and paid for her health care with her own money.

And when Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams needed heart surgery, he, too, came to the United States and paid for his health care with his own money.

Now that Obama has given the U.S. so-called “universal health care,” where will Canadian politicians go when they get sick?

289) Gave married couples an annual tax of up to $11,028 for being married instead of single

In front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration argued that Obamacare is a tax.

According to the Obamacare calulator, Obamacare places an annual tax on married couples for being married instead of single. The amount of this tax depends upon the ages, incomes, and parental status of the married couple.

According to the Obamacare calculator, the extreme case of this tax occurs with a 60-year-old married couple with no children, where the two spouses have identical incomes totaling $62,041 per year. Under this scenario, according to the Obamacare calculator, Obamacare gives them an annual tax of $11, 028 for being married instead of single.

290) Gave people an annual tax increase of up to $12,214 for earning one more dollar of income

In front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration argued that Obamacare is a tax.

Obamacare gives some people a tax increase if they increase their income by one dollar. The amount of this tax increase depends upon the person’s age, income, and marital status.

According to the Obamacare calculator, the extreme case of this occurs with a 64-year-old married couple with a combined income of $62,041. Under this scenario, according to the Obamacare calulator, Obamacare gives them an annual tax increase of $12,214 when their income increases by one dollar, in the case of their income going from $62,040 to $62,041.

This amounts to a marginal tax rate of 1,221,400%. That’s not a typo – the marginal tax rate on that one dollar of additional income is more than one million per cent.

291) Refused to fire IRS employees who “lost” $67 million from Obamacare “slush fund”

In September 2013, it was reported that IRS employees had “lost” $67 million from a “slush fund.” Obama refused to fire those employees. Obama had created the “slush fund” as part of Obamacare.

292) Refused to fire ATF employees who “lost” 420 million cigarettes

In September 2013, it was reported that ATF employees had “lost” 420 million cigarettes. Obama refused to fire them.

293) Falsely said his mother’s insurance company had refused to pay for her cancer treatment

During the 2008 election campaign, Obama falsely said that his mother’s health insurance company had refused to pay for her cancer treatment.

294) Had 19.5 million fake Twitter followers

As of September 2013, Obama had 19.5 million fake Twitter followers.

295) Illegally delayed online registration of Obamacare for small businesses

Obamacare requires that the online registration for small businesses be ready by October 1, 2013. However, five days before that date, Associated Press reported that this deadline would not be met.

296) Encouraged 30,000 Puget Sound grocery workers to vote in favor of authorizing a strike

In September 2013, a union representing 30,000 employees at Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC, and Albertson’s in the Puget Sound area of Washington state voted in favor of authorizing a strike. Union members said that one of their reasons for voting in favor of the strike was that their employers were trying to switch their part time employees form employer provided insurance to the Obamacare exchanges.

297) Waived the U.S. ban on arming terrorists

In September 2013, the Washington Examiner reported:

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda

The law allows the president to waive those prohibitions if he “determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States.”

298) Caused a family’s monthly insurance premium to increase from $333 to $965

Andy and Amy Mangione and their two sons live in Louisville, Kentucky. In September 2013, they received a letter from Humana, their insurance company, which said that Obamacare would be causing their monthly premium to increase from $333 to $965.

299) Caused Michelle Malkin’s family to lose their health insurance policy

In September 2013, conservative writer Michelle Malkin, who has always opposed Obamacare, wrote:

Like an estimated 22 million other Americans, I am a self-employed small-business owner who buys health insurance for my family directly on the individual market. We have a high-deductible PPO plan that allows us to choose from a wide range of doctors.

Or rather, we had such a plan.

Last week, our family received notice from Anthem BlueCross BlueShield of Colorado that we can no longer keep the plan we like because of “changes from health care reform (also called the Affordable Care Act or ACA).” The letter informed us that “(t)o meet the requirements of the new laws, your current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date.”

This isn’t just partisan business. It’s personal. Our cancellation letter states that Anthem is “not going to be selling new individual PPO plans.” When we asked whether we could keep our children’s doctors, an agent for Anthem told my husband and me she didn’t know.

300) Tried to force Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic organizations to violate their religious principles

In September 2013, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty sued the Obama administration on behalf of Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic charity. Other Catholic organizations were also represented in the lawsuit.

Sister Loraine Marie said of this lawsuit:

“We cannot violate our vows by participating in the government’s program to provide access to abortion-inducing drugs.”

Mark Rienzi, one of the lawyers representing these Catholic organizations, said:

“These women just want to take care of the elderly poor without being forced to violate the faith that animates their work. The money they collect should be used to care for the poor like it always has — and not to pay the IRS.”

301) Signed health care reform that broke his promise not to increase taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year

On September 12, 2008, Obama promised:

“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

In 2010, Obama signed Obamacare.

In 2012, in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Obama administration argued that Obamacare is a tax.

302) Pushed millions of working people “into a regulatory health coverage no man’s land”

In February 2013, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (Democrat-Oregon) said:

“We’ve got millions of people — working-class, middle-class people — who are going to be pushed into a regulatory health coverage no man’s land. They are unable to afford the family coverage through their employer and ineligible for the subsidy that could be used by dependents on the exchange.”

303) “Unfairly” forced federal lawmakers and their aides to participate in the same health care reform as everyone else

In June 2013, U.S. Congressman John Larson (Democrat-Connecticut) said that it is “not fair” to force federal lawmakers and their aides to participate in the same health care reform as everyone else.

304) Encouraged SEIU union to go on strike

The Service Employees International Union supported Obama in both elections, and also supported the passage of Obamacare.

However, in September 2013, member of the Chicago chapter of the SEIU went on strike over jobs cuts that were caused by Obamacare.

305) Removed promise of “free” health care from Obamacare website

In September 2013, the Obamacare website removed its promise of “free” health care.

306) Exposed the hypocrisy of MSNBC host Ed Schultz

After Obamacare was passed, MSNBC host Ed Schultz praised it almost every day for three years. However, on Sepotember 26, 2013, just five days before the Obamacare exchanges were to begin, Schultz said that unions should be exempt from it.

307) Punished people who were unable to accurately predict their income a year in advance

Obamacare requires people to predict their income a year in advance. If their prediction is wrong, they can be punished by the IRS.

308) Created Obamacare website where less than 1% of the people who visited on its first day actually registered for Obamacare

U.S. Congressman Congressman Jim Himes (Democrat-Connecticut) said that out of the 28,000 people from Connecticut who had visited the Obamacare website on its first day, only 167 had actually signed up for Obamacare.

309) Obama administration falsely said it did not know how many people had enrolled in Obamacare

On October 3, 2013, the third day that the Obamacare website was in operation, White House spokesman Jay Carney said that “7 million” people had visited the Obamacare website so far. However, when asked how many of those people had actually enrolled in Obamacare, he said, “We don’t have that data.”

Carney was lying. Of course the Obama administration had that data. CBS News was able to get a copy of that data, and reported that during the first 24 hours after the Obamacare website went online, only six people had used the website to enroll in Obamacare.

310) Broke promise that Obamacare “navigators” would not go door to door

On October 1, 2013, the very first day that Obamacare registration was taking place, the Obama administration broke its promise that Obamacare “navigators” would not go door to door.

311) Created Obamacare website where reporters from various news agencies were unable to register on its first day

On October 1, 2013, a CNN reporter was unable to register at the Obamacare website.

On October 1, 2013, an MSNBC reporter was unable to register at the Obamacare website.

On October 1, 2013, a reporter from the Tennessean was unable to register at the Obamacare website.

312) Created Obamacare phone line that was answered by “navigators” who had no training

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. The Obama administration had three and a half years to hire and train the “navigators” who answer the Obamacare phone line.

However, on October 1, 2013, one of the “navigators” who answered the Obamacare phone line said “We have not been trained yet.”

313) Created Obamacare website that can’t handle as much traffic as a website which is run by one guy in his pajamas from his apartment

drudgereport.com is run by Matt Drudge, who runs the website in his pajamas from his apartment. I’ve visited his website just about every day since the late 20th century. It runs very well. His website has gotten as many as 45 million hits per day.

On the first day of the Obamacare website, it had 5 million visitors. It could not handle that amount of traffic.

314) Created Obamacare phone line where “navigators” told people to go to a building that turned out to be empty

Obamacare “navigators” who answered the Obamacare phone line told people to go to a building that turned out to be empty.

315) Created Obamacare phone line with a number that when spelled out is “F*** YO”

When spelled out, the Obamacare phone number is “F*** YO.”

This is not a complaint on my part. On the contrary, I consider this to be truth in advertising. For once, the Obama administration is telling us the truth about Obamacare.

316) Tried to censor a book about the “Fast and Furious” scandal

In October 2013, the ACLU announced that it would be defending John Dodson’s first amendment right to free speech, against the Obama administration, which was trying to prevent Dodson from publishing a book about Obama’s “Fast and Furious” scandal.

317) Michelle Obama said she could not tweet as often after the federal shutdown caused layoffs of her 16 “assistants,” who have salaries as high as $172,200

Michelle Obama has 16 taxpayer funded “assistants,” whose salaries are as high as $172,200.

During the government shutdown in October 2013, her 16 “assistants” were laid off, and her twitter account said:

“Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, updates to this account will be limited.”

318) Hypocritically blocked Texas’s voter ID law for being “racist”

In March 2012, Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID law, claiming that it was “racist.”

However, the very same Obama Justice Department that did this, also requires photo ID for everyone who enters it. In this video, beginning at 2:39, we see that a security guard at Obama’s Justice Department requires photo ID for everyone who enters.

319) Falsely said that his negotiating over the debt ceiling would be unprecedented

In October 2013, Obama falsely said that his negotiating over the debt ceiling would be unprecedented.

320) Blocked access to outdoor memorials and monuments during the government shutdown, even though it would have been cheaper to leave them open

During the government shutdown in October 2013, Obama shut down the Vietnam Memorial, despite the fact that it would have been cheaper to leave it open.

Obama also shut down the World War II Memorial. Obama used metal fences and yellow police tape to block the entrances.

Obama put up orange cones to prevent drivers from stopping and taking pictures of Mount Rushmore.

Obama put up yellow police tape in front of the Lincoln Memorial to prevent people from entering.

During previous government shutdowns, these memorials and monuments had remained open.

Since it’s more expensive to close these outdoor memorials and monuments than it is to leave them open, I have to wonder what Obama’s reason was for shutting them down.

321) Kicked people out of their privately owned vacation homes on federal land during government shutdown

During the government shutdown in October 2013, Obama forced people to leave their privately owned vacation homes along Lake Mead. The privately owned homes were situated on land owned by the federal government. All of the homes in question were vacation homes, not primary residences, so no one was forced into homelessness. Nevertheless, there was no legitimate justification for Obama to do this.

322) Forced private businesses on federal land to close during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama forced privately owned marinas, restaurants, inns, and concessions stands which were situated on federal land to close. Although the Obama administration claimed that this was done because the government did not have enough money to allow them to stay open, the government actually spent extra money to have federal guards prevent people from entering these private businesses.

323) Kept one of his favorite golf courses open during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, while Obama was busying closing federal parks, monuments, and memorials, he made one exception – he allowed one of his favorite golf courses to stay open.

324) Spent $98,670 to build an outhouse

In September 2013, the Obama administration spent $98,670 to build an outhouse at the Swede Park Trail Head in Alaska.

325) Engages in “a sign of leadership failure”

In March 2006, Senator Obama said:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.”

However, in September 2013, President Obama argued in favor of raising the debt ceiling.

326) Used armed guards to imprison law abiding tourists inside a locked building at Yellowstone National Park

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama used armed guards to imprison law abiding tourists inside a locked building at Yellowstone National Park.

327) Illegally denied death benefits to the families of dead U.S. soldiers

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama illegally denied death benefits to the families of dead U.S. soldiers. Prior to the government shutdown, the funding for these death benefits had already been authorized by law.

328) Spent $47,174 on a mechanical bull during government shutdown

During the October 2013 government shutdown, while Obama was busy closing parks, memorials, and monuments, and denying death benefits to the families of dead U.S. military personnel, he did manage to spend $47,174 on a mechanical bull.

329) Seized $35,000 from a law abiding owner of a grocery store without any warning , explanation, or charges

For 30 years, Terry Dehko has been legally operating a grocery store near Detroit, Michigan. In January 2013, the Obama administration seized $35,000 from Dehko’s bank account, without giving any warning or explanation, and without charging Dehko with any crime.

330)  Ran “the most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered”

For the past 20 years, David Sanger has been a New York Times reporter stationed in Washington, D.C. In October 2013, he said:

“This is the most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

331) Fined a runner $100 for running in Valley Forge

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration fined a runner $100 for running in Valley Forge.

332) Ordered Claude Moore Colonial Farm to shut down, even though it was privately funded

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration ordered Claude Moore Colonial Farm to shut down, even though it was privately funded.

333) Ordered a volunteer to stop cleaning up the National Mall

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration ordered Chris Cox, a volunteer, to stop cleaning up the National Mall.

334) Told students to remove two amendments from the “outdated” Bill of Rights

As part of Obama’s “Common Core” education program, students in a sixth-grade history class in Bryant, Arkansas, were told to removed two amendments from the “outdated” Bill of Rights.

335) Ordered people to appear in federal court because they had entered the Grand Canyon

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration ordered people to appear in federal court because they had entered the Grand Canyon.

336) Ordered volunteers to stop bringing therapy dogs to visit sick children in the hospital

During the October 2013 government shutdown, the Obama administration ordered volunteers to stop bringing therapy dogs to visit sick children in the hospital.

337) Had veterans arrested for visiting the Vietnam Memorial

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Obama had veterans arrested for visiting the Vietnam Memorial

338) A “lead navigator” for Obamacare falsely told applicants that they must provide their credit score

In October 2013, Anne Packham, a “lead navigator” for Obamacare, falsely told applicants that they had to provide their credit score.

339) Created Obamacare website which “looks like nobody tested it”

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. He had three and a half years to create and test the Obamacare website.

However, in October 2013, CBS News quoted Luke Chung, an online database programmer who supports Obamacare, as saying the following about the Obamacare website:

“It wasn’t designed well, it wasn’t implemented well, and it looks like nobody tested it… It’s not even close. It’s not even ready for beta testing for my book. I would be ashamed and embarrassed if my organization delivered something like that.”

340) Obamacare’s first publicized “enrollee” turned out to be a Democratic activist who had not actually enrolled in Obamacare

After the Obamacare website went online, the media tried and tried to find someone who had actually enrolled, but could not find anyone, because the website was so badly designed.

After much searching, they finally reported that they had found someone – a 21-year-old guy from Georgia named Chad Henderson.

On October 3, 2013, the Washington Post reported:

Meet Chad Henderson, the Obamacare enrollee tons of reporters are calling

Ask and, apparently, you shall receive.

Just moments after writing a blog post Thursday morning, about the lack of information on Obamacare enrollees, Enroll America reached out with contact information for Chad Henderson, a 21-year-old in Georgia who had successfully enrolled in coverage on the federal marketplace.

It was a little difficult to reach Henderson, mostly because so many other reporters wanted to talk to him. “I’m supposed to talk to the Chattanooga Times Free Press in a half hour,” Henderson said. “And The Wall Street Journal is supposed to call.”

Luckily, Henderson managed to squeeze me in for a few minutes. He’s a student at Chattanooga State University who lives across the state border in Flintstone, Ga.

Politico reported:

Rare health exchange enrollee gets 15 minutes of Obamacare fame

Chad Henderson, a college student who is one of the few people to have signed up for health insurance on a federal exchange, is having his 15 minutes of Obamacare fame.

But wait.

It turns out that Henderson had not actually enrolled in Obamcare.

In addition, Henderson is actually a member of Organizing for Action, the organization that ran Obama’s election campaign.

341) Said it’s “unfair” to ask for Obamacare enrollment numbers just one week after Obamacare website went online

U.S. Congressional reperestentative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Democrat-Florida) is the chairperson for the Democratic National Committee. When a reporter asked her how many people had enrolled in Obamacare during its first week, she said it was “unfair” to ask that question so early.

When a new movie comes out, we know how many people bought tickets in the first week. When a new video game, or a new CD, or a new book comes out, we know how many people bought it in the first week.

But when a news reporter asks “the most transparent administration in history” how many people signed up for its new health care program during its first week, we are told that such a question is “unfair.”

342) Declined to idenifty the private contractors who screwed up the Obamacare website

When the New York Times asked the Obama administration to identify the private contractors who had screwed up the Obamacare website, the Obama administration refused to answer.

343) Refused to answer why businesses, but not individuals, were able to delay the Obamacare mandate for a year

When Jon Stewart asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius why businesses, but not individuals, were able to delay the Obamacare mandate for a year, Sebelius refused to answer.

344) Gave people Obamacare “rate shock”

Many news sources, including the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, Investor’s Business Daily, the Daily Caller, CBS News, Forbes, CNN, the San Jose Mercury News,  and the San Francisco Chronicle, have been reporting on something called Obamacare “rate shock.”

For example, Tom Waschura, a self employed engineer who lives in Portola Valley, California, said that he supports Obamacare, and that he voted for Obama in both elections.

However, on October 5, 2013, Waschura said:

“I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today.”

“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”

This next quote is one of the funniest things that I’ve heard anyone say about Obamacare so far. It comes from Cindy Vinson, a retired teacher from San Jose, California, who said that she supports Obamacare, and that she voted for Obama in both elections. This is what she said in October 2013, after she found out that Obamacare would be causing her insurance premium to increase:

“Of course, I want people to have health care. I just didn’t realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally.”

CNN reported:

One North Carolina reader was upset to learn her current $267 a month plan was being canceled and the cheapest option on the exchange would cost her family $750 a month. They don’t qualify for a subsidy.

“Obamacare is a nightmare for my family,” she wrote.

345) Made sure that Obamacare “rate shock” did not happen until after the 2012 election

Obamacare was deliberately written so that Obamacare “rate shock” would not occur until after the 2012 election.

On October 9, 2013, Obama’s approval rating was only 37%. Obamacare “rate shock” was a significant factor in this low approval rating. If Obamacare “rate shock” had happened in October 2012 instead of in October 2013, it’s highly unlikley that Obama would have won the 2012 election.

346) Had the Obamacare website built by cronies instead of by qualified programmers

Obama had the Obamacare website built by cronies instead of by qualified programmers.

347) Used 55 different contractors to build the Obamacare website

Instead of choosing just one contractor or a few contractors who could properly build the Obamacare website, Obama decided to spread the work out over 55 different contractors, which made it much harder to get all the parts to run together properly.

348) Waited until after the 2012 election to issue major rules for the Obamacare website

Obama signed the Obamacare law in March 2010. The law requires the online exchanges to be up and running by October 2013. So Obama had three and a half years to get the website ready.

However, Obama waited until after the 2012 election to release some of the major rules for how the website was supposed to be designed. So instead of having three and a half years to get the website ready, Obama made sure the programmers had less than one year.

349) New York Times reporter was never able to log in to Obamamacare website during more than 40 attempts over 11 days

During more than 40 attempts to log in to the Obamacare website over a period of 11 days beginning on October 1, 2013, a New York Times reported was never able to log in.

356) There is “no reasonable expectation of privacy” at Obamacare website

The source code for the Obamacare website states:

“You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system. At any time, and for any lawful Government purpose, the government may monitor, intercept, and search and seize any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system. Any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system may be disclosed or used for any lawful Government purpose.”

357) Requires users to reveal private info before shopping at Obamacare website

Legitimate shopping websites such as amazon.com allow users to browse merchandise without having to enter their personal information. However, the Obamacare website requires users to enter their name, social security number, and other personal information before they are allowed to look at the insurance plans.

358) Michelle Obama refused to pick vegetables from her own garden without federal help

During the October 2013 government shutdown, Michelle Obama decided to avoid picking her own vegetables from her own garden, and instead, allowed them to rot.

Reuters reported:

In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food.

It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love.

359) The Obamacare website is “a hacker’s wet dream”

John McAfee, the computer programmer who founded McAfee, Inc., said the Obamacare website is “a hacker’s wet dream.”

360) Caused a leukemia patient to lose his insurance

However, in October 2013, his insurance company sent him a letter which said that because of Obamacare, his insurance policy would be canceled on January 1, 2014.

361) Added 11 million words of regulations to Obamacare, which is 30 times as many words as the law itself

The regulations that Obama addded to Obamacare after he signed it are 11 million words long. That’s 30 times as many words as the actual Obamacare law that Obama signed in March 2010. Because Obama added these 11 million words without approval from Congress, his actions are illegal.

362) Threatened to arrest people for telling jokes

In October 2013, the Obama administration announced the following on loudspeakers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas:

“Inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest.”

363) Changed Obamacare registration deadline at the last minute

For three and a half years, the Obama administration repeatedly said that people had to register for Obamacare by March 31, 2014.

However, in October 2013, the Obama administration changed that deadline to February 14, 2014.

364) Ignored the  successful methods of eHealthInsurance.com

The website eHealthInsurance.com has been successfully selling health insurance since 1998. The website is simple and easy to use.

However, when Obama created the Obamacare website, he chose to ignore the successful methods that are used by eHealthInsurance.com.

365) For two weeks, CNN reporter was never able to log in to Obamacare website

369) Asked Blue Cross Blue Shield not to release Obamacare exchange numbers

372) Obamacare website gave wrong prices

In October 2013, CBS News reported:

A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance.

In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the website.

Industry executives CBS News spoke with could not believe the government is providing these estimates, which they said were useless and could easily mislead consumers. They also said that the website repeatedly states the actual prices could be lower, but it makes no mention that they could be higher. 

373) Obamacare website sent false information to insurance companies

In October 2013, it was reported that the Obamacare website was sending false information to insurance companies

376) Falsely said “No one is more frustrated than I am” regarding the Obamacare website

On October 21, 2013, regarding the failure of the Obamacare website, Obama said:

“No one is more frustrated than I am.”

Obama has absolutely no right to be “frustrated” about any of the Obamacare webstie’s problems, because he is the person who chose to cause those problems in the first place.

It was Obama who signed a 2,600 page law that he hadn’t read.

It was Obama who added an additional 20,000 pages of regulations that he hadn’t read to Obamacare without Congressional approval.

It was Obama who chose to hire cronies instead of competent programmers to create the Obamacare website.

It was Obama who waited until after the 2012 election to issue some of the main rules for the Obamacare website, which gave the programmers less than one year to comply with those rules, instead of the three and half years they would have had if Obama hadn’t waited.

It was Obama who falsely said that the price of annual family insurance premiums would fall by $2,500.

It was Obama who falsely told people that they could keep their insurance if they were happy with it.

It was Obama who gave employers a huge financial incentive to switch their full time employees to a part time, 29 hour week.

It was Obama who refused to fire Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius after the Obamacare website failed.

Every thing that’s bad about the Obamacare website is the direct result of choices that Obama made.

Obama has no right to be “frustrated” at the website’s failure.

You want to know the people who really do have the right to be “frustrated” at Obamacare’s problems? It’s the people who have opposed Obamacare from the start. It’s the people who predicted that these problems would happen. It’s the people who called the bluff from the very start on Obama’s many lies about Obamacare. These are the people who have the right to be “frustrated” at Obamacare’s problems.

And yet somehow, not only does Obama falsely say that he is “frustrated,” but he also falsely says that he is more frustrated than anyone else.

The people who are truly “frustrated” are the millions of people who were against Obamacare but are now being forced to participate in it.

Obama owns this – he created it. He has no right to be “frustrated” about it.

U.S. Congressional representative Jared Polis (Democrat-Colorado) voted against delaying Obamacare’s individual mandate for the entire country, but later requested such a delay for his own district.

390) New York Times writer gave Obama a grade of ‘F’ for rollout of Obamacare website

On October 25, 2013, New York Times writer Uwe E. Reinhardt wrote:

“… who exactly should be assigned the F for the troubled rollout of HealthCare.gov?”

“Once elected, a president becomes chief executive of a giant federal enterprise. Anyone familiar with corporate management would have thought that for as ambitious and technically a complex project as the initial rollout of HealthCare.gov – so important to many uninsured Americans and so politically important to the White House – the chief executive would have remained in very close touch with the management team overseeing the project and thus would have been briefed daily or at least weekly on the progress of the project and especially on any problems with it.”

“… the blame for the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov goes to its entire management team, to be sure, but primarily to the chief executive on top of that project. In my view, not only the proverbial buck stops on the chief executive’s desk, but, for the management of this particular project, the grade of F goes there as well.”

391) Said “Don’t believe what you’ve heard” regarding criticism of Obamacare

On October 25, 2013, regarding the various criticisms of Obamacare, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius said:

“Don’t believe what you’ve heard.”

In other words, the Obama administration says we shouldn’t believe the Washington Post, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Associated Press, Reuters, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, Politico, the Wall St. Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Investor’s Business Daily, Forbes, the BBC, Huffington Post, the Nation, Mother Jones, or New Republic.

392) Closed a public beach and prevented a private charity from raising money for art in the schools

For the past 30 years, a privately run charity in San Francisco called Leap has had a charity event where they build sand castles to raise money to support art in the schools. In 2012, this contest raised more than $250,000 for art in the schools.

The White House press secretary, Jay Carney said, “The president assured [Merkel] that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications” of the chancellor.” Please note: IS not monitoring and WILL NOT monitor.

409) Obama falsely blamed insurance companies for canceling policies that did not meet Obamacare’s minimum requirements

Obamacare requires all insurance policies to cover pre-existing conditions, maternity care, treatment for heroin addiction, and certain other things.

Therefore, based on simple logic, any policies that do not cover these things are rendered illegal by Obamacare, and must be canceled.

The Washington Post said of this:

“Beginning Jan. 1, the new plans must cover 10 essential benefits including pediatric care, prescription drugs, mental-health services and maternity care. In general, policies that don’t offer those can’t be sold after 2013.”

If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

However, on November 4, 2013, Obama said:

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”

On November 8, 2013, the White House website still said, “If you like your plan you can keep it”

433) Obama used fraudulent accounting to overstate the number of people who had “enrolled” in Obamacare

In November 2013, the Washington Post reported:

Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? The Obama administration settles on a definition.

The fight over how to define the new health law’s success is coming down to one question: Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee?

Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they’ve submitted a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

434) In June 2010, the Obama administration estimated that 93 million people would lose their insurance because of Obamacare

In June 2010, the Obama administration estimated that 93 million people would lose their insurance because of Obamacare.

435) Obamacare caused cancer patient Edie Littlefield Sundby to lose her insurance and her doctor

In a November 2013 opinion column in the Wall St. Journal, Edie Littlefield Sundby wrote:

I had great cancer doctors and health insurance. My plan was cancelled. Now I worry how long I’ll live.

For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.

My choice is to get coverage through the government health exchange and lose access to my cancer doctors, or pay much more for insurance outside the exchange (the quotes average 40% to 50% more) for the privilege of starting over with an unfamiliar insurance company and impaired benefits.

After four weeks of researching plans on the website, talking directly to government exchange counselors, insurance companies and medical providers, my insurance broker and I are as confused as ever. Time is running out and we still don’t have a clue how to best proceed.

Two things have been essential in my fight to survive stage-4 cancer. The first are doctors and health teams in California and Texas: at the medical center of the University of California, San Diego, and its Moores Cancer Center; Stanford University’s Cancer Institute; and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

The second element essential to my fight is a United Healthcare PPO (preferred provider organization) health-insurance policy.

Since March 2007 United Healthcare has paid $1.2 million to help keep me alive, and it has never once questioned any treatment or procedure recommended by my medical team. The company pays a fair price to the doctors and hospitals, on time, and is responsive to the emergency treatment requirements of late-stage cancer. Its caring people in the claims office have been readily available to talk to me and my providers.

But in January, United Healthcare sent me a letter announcing that they were pulling out of the individual California market.

So if I go with a health-exchange plan, I must choose between Stanford and UCSD. Stanford has kept me alive – but UCSD has provided emergency and local treatment support during wretched periods of this disease, and it is where my primary-care doctors are.

Before the Affordable Care Act, health-insurance policies could not be sold across state lines; now policies sold on the Affordable Care Act exchanges may not be offered across county lines.

For a cancer patient, medical coverage is a matter of life and death. Take away people’s ability to control their medical-coverage choices and they may die. I guess that’s a highly effective way to control medical costs. Perhaps that’s the point.

Here’s a five minute CNN video of an Obamacare supporter complaining and complaining and complaining about her insurance being canceled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otmjtqU7tQU

437) In December 2013, Obama gave unions even more illegal exemptions from Obamacare

In December 2013, it was reported that Obama had illegally exempted some unions from some of the Obamacare fees, without approval from Congress.

438) Obamacare website gave someone’s password, address, and social security number to three complete strangers

In November 2013, MKOV reported that the Obamacare website had given the password, address, and social security number of a woman in St. Louis, Missouri, to three complete strangers.

439) Obamacare “navigators” encouraged applicants to lie about their income and smoking

In November 2013, undercover video footage showed Obamacare navigators encouraging applicants to lie about their income and smoking status. A second video with more examples was also released.

440) “4 Things The US Government Accomplished In Less Time Than A Working Obamacare Website”

In November 2013, camharris.us reported:

4 Things The US Government Accomplished In Less Time Than A Working Obamacare Website

From the day that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act went into effect to the morning that the federal healthcare exchange went live, 1288 days passed. 3 years, 6 months, and 8 days. In all that time, our federal government could not construct a website that actually worked, and we are still waiting for a final product.

Here are 4 things the United States government accomplished in less time than it has taken to build a working website:

 1. We Fought World War I

April 6, 1917-November 11, 1918

1 years, 7 months, 6 days

2. We Fought A Bigger War

December 7, 1941-May 8, 1945

3 years, 5 months, 2 days

3. We Built The Bomb

June 17, 1942-July 16,1945

3 years, 1 month

4. We Orbited A Man Around The Earth

October 7, 1958-February 20, 1962

3 years, 4 months, 13 days

441) Falsely claimed credit for the increase in domestic oil production

During Obama’s Presidency, domestic oil production increased, and the Obama administration claimed credit for it. However, this increase only happened on privately owned land and state owned land, which Obama had no control over. On land that is owned by the federal government, oil production actually went down.

442) Falsely said “I actually respect the Constitution.”

In 2007, Obama said:

“I actually respect the Constitution.”

However, this list contains a huge number of examples which prove that Obama’s statement is false.

443) Senator Obama repeatedly voted in favor of funding the Iraq War

In March 2007, the Boston Globe reported:

Obama defends votes in favor of Iraq funding

Senator Barack Obama yesterday defended his votes on behalf of funding the Iraq war

Obama has voted for all of the president’s war funding requests since coming to the Senate

444) Banned Navy SEALs from wearing the “Don’t Tread on Me” Navy Jack patch on their uniforms

For more than 200 years, the “Don’t Tread on Me” Navy Jack flag has been a well respected symbol of the U.S. Navy.

However, in October 2013, the Obama administration banned Navy SEALs from wearing a patch of it on their uniforms.

445) Gave 655 “tax refunds” to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 to a single address in Shanghai

In 2012, the Obama administration gave 655 “tax refunds” to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 to a single address in Shanghai.

446) Banned the linking of terrorism to radical Islam during training of anti-terrorism agents

Although the Fort Hood shooter, the shoe bomber, and underwear bomber, and 100% of the 9-11 terrorists were all radical Muslims, the Obama administration enacted a ban on associating terrorism with radical Islam during training exercises of anti-terrrorism agents.

447) During Obamacare’s first month, only 106,185 people enrolled

On November 12, 2013, it was reported that during October 2013, only 106,185 people had enrolled in Obamacare. And even this pathetically low number is fraudulently overstated, because it includes people who had left insurance policies in their shopping cart without paying for them. No legitimate online retailer counts unpaid items left in the shopping cart as a sale.

448) Less than 1% of Massachusetts citizens who lost their insurance because of Obamacare have signed up for a new policy at the Obamacare website

On November 9, 2013, the Boston Herald reported:

Just weeks before a Jan. 1 enrollment deadline, state officials admitted yesterday that just 1 percent of the 150,000 Bay Staters facing canceled heath insurance under Obamacare rules have signed up for new plans.

Massachusetts Health Connector officials told the Herald that only 549 applicants — out of the 150,000 Bay Staters forced to switch their health plans to comply with Obamacare rules — are poised to receive insurance through the new system.

449) “The Obamacare Exchange Scorecard: Around 100,000 Enrollees And Five Million Cancellations”

On November 12, 2013, Forbes reported:

The Obamacare Exchange Scorecard: Around 100,000 Enrollees And Five Million Cancellations

HHS has released the official numbers here. The HHS report states that only 26,794 people enrolled in the federal exchange—which amounts to 23 per state per day—and 79,391 enrolled in the state-based exchanges, for a total of 106,185.

In the market for individually-purchased health insurance, more than 4.8 million Americans have received notices that their preexisting plans are soon to be illegal, and will be cancelled. Many more cancellation notices are imminent.

450) Obama told insurance companies to break the law

On November 14, 2013, after insurance companies had canceled policies that did not meet the minimum requirements of Obamacare, Obama told them to restore these policies. However, he did this without Congress voting to approve these changes to Obamacare. The President does not have the legal authority to change a law that was passed by Congress, without those changes first being approved by Congress.

451) Obama falsely said “In the first month alone, we’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans”

On November 18, 2013, Obama said:

“In the first month alone, we’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans.”

In reality, the actual number was 106,185.

452) Jessica Sanford, whom Obama had cited as an Obamacare success story, later said she could not afford to buy an Obamacare policy

Jessica Sanford  is a a self-employed single mother from Washington state, who earns slightly less than $50,000 a year, and has not had health insurance for 15 years.

On October 21, 2013, Obama cited Sanford as an Obamacare success story, because she would be able to purchase an Obamacare policy for herself and her son for only $169 per month.

However, a month later, it was reported that the Obamacare website had quoted the wrong price for Sanford. Her true, actual price was $621. She said that she could not afford this, and that she would just pay the penalty instead.

453) Video shows students at historically black college complaining that Obamacare caused them to lose their insurance

Bowie University is a historically black college in Maryland. This video shows students from the college complaining about how Obamacare caused them to lose their insurance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPuFt6g_0a8

454) “Obama brings chilling effect on journalism”

In October 2013, Associated Press reported:

Obama brings chilling effect on journalism

A report finds the U.S. government’s aggressive prosecution of leaks and efforts to control information are having a chilling effect on journalists and government whistle-blowers.

The Committee to Protect Journalists released its first examination of U.S. press freedoms Thursday, focusing on changes under the Obama administration.

Leonard Downie Jr., a former executive editor of The Washington Post, wrote the 30-page analysis entitled “The Obama Administration and the Press.” Downie interviewed reporters and editors who described a chilling effect in which “government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press.”

Those suspected of discussing classified information are subject to investigation, lie-detector tests and scrutiny of telephone and email records.

455) Sued a trucking company that fired Muslim truck drivers for refusing to drive trucks carrying alcoholic beverages

In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck drivers who had refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic beverages.

456) Gave personal information of thousands of bookstore customers to dozens of federal agencies

In November 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had given the names, social security numbers, and other personal information of thousands of bookstore customers to dozens of fedeal agencies, including the IRS, CIA, NSA, and FDA.

457) Created fake unemployment statistics before the 2012 election

Soon before the 2012 election, the Obama administration created fake statistics to make the unemployment rate appear lower than it actually was.

458) “White House blocks access to Obama events, news groups say”

In November 2013, McClatchy reported:

White House blocks access to Obama events, news groups say

The nation’s largest news organizations lodged a complaint Thursday against the White House for imposing unprecedented limitations on photojournalists covering President Barack Obama, which they say have harmed the public’s ability to monitor its own government.

The organizations accuse the White House of banning photojournalists from covering Obama at some events, and then later releasing its own photos and videos of the same events.

“Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the president while he is performing his official duties,” according to a letter the organizations sent to the White House. “As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the executive branch of government.”

“You are only seeing what they want you to see,” said Lucy Dalglish, the dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.

the news organizations stressed that they’re referring only to presidential activities of a “fundamentally public nature,” not private or restricted events, including ones that may affect national security.

Examples cited in the letter are Obama’s meetings with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on July 10, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on July 29 and Pakistani human rights activist Malala Yousafzai on Oct. 11.

In each case, journalists weren’t allowed – and sometimes were unaware – of the event. The White House later released written summaries of the events, along with photos taken by a government photographer.

On Thursday, the presidents of the American Society of News Editors and the Associated Press Media Editors sent a letter to their members urging them to stop using handout photos and video from the White House.

“We must accept that we, the press, have been enablers,” the letter says. “We urge those of you in news organizations to immediately refrain from publishing any of the photographs or videos released by the White House, just as you would refuse to run verbatim a press release from them.”

Harry Walker, the director of the McClatchy-Tribune Photo Service, said opening access to events was “the foundation for journalism, not just photojournalism.”

The letter was signed by 38 news organizations, including all the major broadcast and cable networks, wire services, online services and newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and the McClatchy Co., which owns 30 daily newspapers across the nation.

459) Three days after the Egyptian government murdered dozens of Egyptian civilians, the Obama administration announced it would give military aid to the Egyptian government, which, soon afterward, murdered hundreds of additional Egyptian civilians

On April 12, 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had just given four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, and that it had also given them eight others on earlier dates.

On July 8, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had murdered at least 51 Egyptian civilians who had been protesting against the Egyptian government.

Three days later, it was reported that the Obama administration would be giving four additional F-16 fighter jets to the Egyptian government.

On July 27, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had murdered at least 72 additional Egyptian civilians who had been protesting against the Egyptian government.

On August 15, 2013, it was reported that the Egyptian government had murdered more than 600 additional Egyptian civilians who had been protesting against the Egyptian government.

460) Spent $1.5 million to help women in Brazil quit smoking

In August 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration would be spending $1.5 million to help women in Brazil quit smoking.

461) “NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds”

In August 2013, the Washington Post reported:

NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds

The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents.

Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by statute and executive order.

The NSA audit obtained by The Post, dated May 2012, counted 2,776 incidents in the preceding 12 months of unauthorized collection, storage, access to or distribution of legally protected communications.

462) Announced plans to illegally regulate greenhouse gas emissions without approval from Congress

In August 2013, the Obama administration announced that it planned to regulate greenhouse gas emissions without approval from Congress. Without approval from Congress, Obama’s actions would be illegal.

463) Refused to answer question about whether or not people who don’t buy insurance should be put in jail

The Obama administration argued in front of the Supreme Court that the Obamacare mandate was a tax. Obama hired 16,500 new IRS agents to run Obamacare. In this video, ABC News asked Obama whether or not he thinks that people who don’t buy insurance should be put in jail. Obama refused to answer the question. Even after the interviewer asked Obama the question a second time, Obama still refused to answer it.

464) An estimated 70% of California doctors will not participate in Obamacare

In December 2013, the California Medical Association estimated that 70% of California doctors would not be participating in Obamacare.

465) California’s Obamacare website gave out the contact information of tens of thousands of people without their permission

In December 2013,  it was reported that California’s Obamacare website had given private insurance agents the names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of tens of thousands of people without their permission.

466) Made it easy for a future Republican President to give every U.S. citizen a permanent Obamacare waiver, without approval from Congress

The President does not have any legal authority to change the law without those changes first being approved by Congress. However, this list contains many examples of Obama making changes to Obamacare without approval from Congress. Some of these changes involve Obama giving Obamacare waivers to unions who supported the passage of Obamacare. Other changes include Obama delaying certain parts of Obamacare. Obama made these changes illegally, because they were not approved by Congress. With a small number of exceptions, Democrats have not criticized Obama for doing this.

Therefore, in the future, if a Republican President were to give permanent Obamacare waivers to every U.S. citizens without approval from Congress, the vast majority of Democrats would be hypocrites if they objected to it.

467) Obamacare encourages patients to rig the system to rip off doctors, repeatedly, year after year after year

In November 2013, Forbes reported:

Obamacare has… a 90-day grace period. This means people can buy an Obamacare policy, have costly procedures done and then cancel the policy within 90 days. If the cancellation comes during the first 30 days, the insurer is responsible for trying to collect payment, but after that, doctors are on their own. They would have to spend time and money chasing patients for payments. California Healthline reported that deadbeats “would not receive a fine, a premium rate increase or a repayment order. They also would not be barred from purchasing another subsidized plan during the next enrollment period.” No other type of health insurance has a 90-day grace period like this.

468) Tech experts said that a properly working Obamacare website should not have cost more than $10 million, whereas the defective version built by Michelle Obama’s incompetent Princeton classmate had actually cost $634 million

Instead of hiring competent programmers to create the Obamacare website, Obama hired CGI Federal, a company that was run by Toni Townes-Whitley, who attended Princeton University with Michelle Obama. When the defective Obamacare website went online on October 1, 2013, it had already cost $634 million.

However, David Kennedy, president of the technology firm TrustedSec, said that even if the Obamacare website had worked properly, it should not have cost more than $10 million. Luke Chung, president and founder of the technology firm FMS, said he agreed with Mr. Kennedy.

469) Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, and several other Democratic Senators who voted for Obamacare, have exempted their own staff from Obamacare

In December 2013, Yahoo News reported:

Harry Reid exempts some of his Senate staff from Obamacare exchanges

One of the biggest public supporters of the Affordable Care Act has reportedly decided that some of his staff should be exempted from the new law.

CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

Yahoo News has reached out to the offices of all 100 U.S. senators to see if any other members have exempted committee staff from the federal exchange. So far, the offices of 42 senators have responded to our inquiry, with 37 saying that the senator and their entire staff will switch over to the exchanges in January.

The offices of Ron Wyden, Tim Johnson, Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray and Thomas Carper, all Democrats, said they were exempting some of their staff. Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, has not responded.

470) In a contest for videos to promote Obamacare, the Obama administration gave first prize to a video called “Forget About the Price Tag”

The Obama administration held a contest where it asked people to make videos to support Obamacare. The Obama administration awarded first prize to a video called “Forget About the Price Tag.” The video can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpRNAkG-Nx0

471) Broke his promise to have the Obamacare website fixed by November 30, 2013

On October 25, 2013, White House spokesman Jeffrey Zients  said:

“By the end of November, the vast majority of consumers will be able to successfully and smoothly enroll through Healthcare.gov”

However, on December 1, 2013, the New York Times reported:

Insurers Claim Health Website Is Still Flawed

The problem is that the systems that are supposed to deliver consumer information to insurers still have not been fixed. And with coverage for many people scheduled to begin in just 30 days, insurers are worried the repairs may not be completed in time.

“Until the enrollment process is working from end to end, many consumers will not be able to enroll in coverage,” said Karen M. Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans, a trade group.

The issues are vexing and complex. Some insurers say they have been deluged with phone calls from people who believe they have signed up for a particular health plan, only to find that the company has no record of the enrollment.

472) Democratic aides who supported the passage of Obamacare said their new Obamacare premiums are “simply unacceptable”

In December 2013, Politico reported:

Older Hill aides shocked by Obamacare prices

Veteran House Democratic aides are sick over the insurance prices they’ll pay under Obamacare, and they’re scrambling to find a cure.

“In a shock to the system, the older staff in my office (folks over 59) have now found out their personal health insurance costs (even with the government contribution) have gone up 3-4 times what they were paying before,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), wrote to fellow Democratic chiefs of staff in an email message obtained by POLITICO. “Simply unacceptable.”

In the email, Ta noted that older congressional staffs may leave their jobs because of the change to their health insurance.

473) Members of Congress and their staff are exempt from the income limits for Obamacare subsidies that apply to everyone else

Most people are eligible for Obamacare subsidies only if their income is no more than 400% of the poverty level. For a family of four, 400% of the poverty level is $94,200. A family of four with income higher than that amount it not eligible for an Obamacare subsidy.

However, members of Congress and their staff are exempt from this limit. Members of Congress are paid $174,000 a year. Because of their special exemption, a middle aged member of Congress who is married and has children, will get a special Obamacare subsidy of $10,000.

474) Obamacare website often doesn’t tell insurance companies about customers who “bought” insurance

On December 1, 2013, the New York Times reported:

Some insurers say they have been deluged with phone calls from people who believe they have signed up for a particular health plan, only to find that the company has no record of the enrollment.

475) Obama’s nominee to head the IRS has “little tax experience”

In December 2013, Reuters reported:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Senate panel hearing on President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Internal Revenue Service was set to resume Wednesday after it was abruptly halted on Tuesday at a Republican senator’s request, committee aides said.

John Koskinen, a 74-year-old lawyer with little tax experience chosen by Obama to take over the beleaguered IRS, traveled up to Capitol Hill to face the Senate Finance Committee, but the session did not last long.

476) Obama said we should raise the minimum wage, but barackobama.com advertised for “unpaid” interns

In February 2013, Obama said:

“Tonight, let’s declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. This single step would raise the incomes of millions of working families. It could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead. For businesses across the country, it would mean customers with more money in their pockets. In fact, working folks shouldn’t have to wait year after year for the minimum wage to go up while CEO pay has never been higher. So here’s an idea that Governor Romney and I actually agreed on last year: let’s tie the minimum wage to the cost of living, so that it finally becomes a wage you can live on.”

However, barackobama.com advertised for “unpaid” interns. The bolding is mine:

477) Falsely said that he had never lived with his drunk driving, illegal alien uncle

In 2011, the Obama administration said that Obama had never lived with his drunk driving, illegal alien uncle. However, in December 2013, it was reported that Obama actually had lived with him.

478) In New York City, thousands of Obama voting, well educated, upper class professionals complained about losing their insurance because of Obamacare

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

With Affordable Care Act, Canceled Policies for New York Professionals

Many in New York’s professional and cultural elite have long supported President Obama’s health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they can find it.

“I couldn’t sleep because of it,” said Barbara Meinwald, a solo practitioner lawyer in Manhattan.

Ms. Meinwald, 61, has been paying $10,000 a year for her insurance through the New York City Bar. A broker told her that a new temporary plan with fewer doctors would cost $5,000 more, after factoring in the cost of her medications.

Roy Lyons, managing director of Marsh U.S. Consumer, an insurance brokerage, said he had heard complaints from physicians, lawyers, pharmacists and optometrists.

Among those affected are members of the Authors Guild; the Advertising Photographers of America; the Suzuki Association of the Americas, a music teachers organization; the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators; the New York City Bar Association; and the New York County Medical Society.

It is not lost on many of the professionals that they are exactly the sort of people — liberal, concerned with social justice — who supported the Obama health plan in the first place. Ms. Meinwald, the lawyer, said she was a lifelong Democrat who still supported better health care for all, but had she known what was in store for her, she would have voted for Mitt Romney.

It is an uncomfortable position for many members of the creative classes to be in.

“We are the Obama people,” said Camille Sweeney, a New York writer and member of the Authors Guild. Her insurance is being canceled, and she is dismayed that neither her pediatrician nor her general practitioner appears to be on the exchange plans. What to do has become a hot topic on Facebook and at dinner parties frequented by her fellow writers and artists.

“I’m for it,” she said. “But what is the reality of it?”

479) Washington state’s Obamacare website stole money from people’s checking accounts

In December 2013, KGW reported that the Obamacare website for Washington state had stolen money from people’s checking accounts.

480) Illegally ordered insurance companies to cover “customers” who had never paid any premiums

In December 2013, Obama ordered insurance companies to cover “customers” who had never paid any premiums. Obama’s action was illegal because it violated the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment. It was also illegal because he did not have approval from Congress.

481) Millennials who voted for Obama and supported the passage of Obamacare did not want to purchase Obamacare insurance for themselves

In December 2013, it was reported that most of the Millennials who had voted for Obama and had supported the passage of Obamacare did not want to purchase Obamacare insurance for themselves.

482) Obamcare website violated federal security laws

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obamacare website was in violation of federal security laws.

483) Refused to answer questions about how many of Obamacare’s so-called “enrollees” had actually paid their first month’s premium

On December 11, 2013, more than two months after the Obamacare website had gone online, the Obama administration still refused to answer questions about how many of Obamacare’s so-called “enrollees” had actually paid their first month’s premium. Instead, the Obama administration was still fraudulently counting as “enrollees” people who had put Obamacare policies into their shopping cart without actually paying for them. No legitimate online retailer counts unpaid items left in the shopping cart as sales.

484) Illegally delayed Obamacare’s online SHOP enrollment by one year

In November 2013, it was reported that Obama had delayed Obamacare’s online SHOP enrollment by one year. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

485) Ten different Obamacare “customer service” representatives refused to let cancer survivor Lynn Baklor sign up for Obamacare

Lynn Baklor lives in Maryland, and is a survivor of breast cancer. Over a period of two months, she spoke on the phone with ten different “customer service” representatives from Obamacare, and none of them allowed her to sign up for Obamacare. The Obamacare website was not working either. A WBAL news report on her situation can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F79acewkZ78

486) Obama’s nominee to head the defense department said he did not know much about the military

In January 2013, Chuck Hagel, Obama’s nominee to head the defense department, said he did not know much about the military.

487) Federal judge said Obama’s bulk collection of phone records was unconstitutional

In December 2013, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon said that Obama’s bulk collection of phone records violated the fourth amendment’s prohibition against unreasonable searches. It was Edward Snowden, a former NSA employee, who had first revealed to the public that Obama had been engaging in this unconstitutional activity.

488) Gave out even more illegal Obamacare waivers

On December 19, 2013, Obama gave exemptions from the Obamacare mandate to people whose insurance had been canceled due to Obamacare. Because Obama gave out these exemptions without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

489) Obamacare creates a new 2% tax on every insurance plan

Obamacare creates a new 2% tax on every insurance plan. This breaks Obama’s promise that he would not raise taxes on families making less than $250,000 per year.

490) Obamacare requires some people to pay 19% of their income for premiums

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

A 60-year-old living in Polk County, in northwestern Wisconsin, and earning $50,000 a year, for example, would have to spend more than 19 percent of his income, or $9,801 annually, to buy one of the cheapest plans available there.

491) Six Democratic Senators who voted for Obamacare complained that it was causing voters in their districts to lose insurance

In December 2013, six Democratic Senators who had voted for Obamacare wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, complaining that Obamacare was causing voters in their districts to lose insurance.

492) Admitted that the so-called “Affordable” Care Act was actually “unaffordable” for some people

In December 2013, the Obama administration admitted that the so-called “Affordable” Care Act was actually “unaffordable” for some people.

493) 53% of people without insurance disapprove of Obamacare

In December 2013, the New York Times reported:

Americans who lack medical coverage disapprove of President Obama’s health care law at roughly the same rate as the insured, even though most say they struggle to pay for basic care, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Fifty-three percent of the uninsured disapprove of the law, the poll found, compared with 51 percent of those who have health coverage. A third of the uninsured say the law will help them personally, but about the same number think it will hurt them, with cost a leading concern.

494) Under certain circumstances, Obamacare recipients between the ages of 55 and 64 can have their homes seized by the government after they die

Under certain circumstances, when someone between the ages of 55 and 64 participates in Obamacare, then after they die, the government can seize their home, preventing their children from inheriting it.

495) PolitiFact repeatedly changed its rating of Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance, based on how many Presidential elections he still had left

PolitiFact is a left wing organization that rates the truthfulness of statements made by politicians. Regarding Obama’s promise that people could keep their insurance, PolitiFact has given out three different ratings.

In October 2008, when Obama still had two Presidential elections coming up, PolitiFact rated his statement as “true.”

In June 2012, when Obama only had one more Presidential election coming up, PolitiFact rated his statement as  “half true.”

In December 2013, when Obama could no longer run for President ever again, PolitiFact rated his statement as “lie of the year.”

In all three of these cases, PolitiFact was rating the exact same statement. So why did they keep changing their rating? The best explanation that I can think of is that as Obama had fewer and fewer Presidential elections coming up, they were willing to be more and more accurate in their ratings. So only when he was no longer able to run for President again, were they finally willing to admit the truth about his statement.

496) Obamacare supporters at Democratic Underground later complained about it

For some really hilarious displays of shock and outrage by supporters of Obamacare at how it’s harming people, check out these threads at Democratic Underground: one, two, three, fourfivesix, and seven.

497) Commander-in-Chief Obama adopted lower military standards so unqualified women could serve in combat

In December 2013, NPR reported:

Starting Jan. 1, every woman in the Marines Corps was supposed to meet a new physical standard by performing three pullups. But that has been put off.

The three pullups is already the minimum required for all male Marines. Now the Marine Corps has postponed the plan, and that’s raising questions about whether women have the physical strength to handle ground combat, which they’ll be allowed to do beginning in 2016.

Why does this matter?

Well, the same NPR article continued:

The Marine Corps has been using it to test upper body strength for men for more than 40 years. And that upper body strength, they say, is necessary to serve in ground combat: to pull yourself out of a canal in Afghanistan, to climb over a mud wall, to carry an ammunition box.

And a CNS News article on the subject stated:

Pull-ups have been used to test Marines’ upper body strength for over 40 years. The ability to pull-up one’s own body weight over a bar shows the upper body strength that, in combat, is needed to lift fallen comrades, pull one’s self over a wall, and carry heavy munitions. Combat Marines also carry a pack that weighs around 90 pounds, with gunners carrying an additional 50 or 60 pounds.

In other words, this qualification is by no means trivial. On the contrary, this involves skills that are necessary in combat – necessary for saving the soldier’s own life, as well as for saving the lives of other soldiers.

Obama, who is Commander-in-Chief of the military, is saying that he’s perfectly OK with allowing unqualified women to go into combat, even if it means that their lack of qualifications could end up killing them, as well as killing other U.S. soldiers who depend on them.

498) Had double standard for hate crime laws

When someone participated in the so-called “knockout game,” the Obama administration filed hate crime charges when a white person attacked a black person, but not when a black person attacked a white person.

499) Tried to prevent federal judge from ruling on NSA surveillance

In December 2013, the Obama administration tried to prevent a federal judge from ruling on NSA surveillance efforts.

501) Forced a woman to undergo a strip search, an observed bowel movement, and a CT scan without a warrant

In December 2012, federal agents forced a New Mexico woman to undergo a strip search, an observed bowel movement, and a CT scan, all without a warrant.

Laura Schauer Ives, the legal director for the New Mexico ACLU, said of this:

“What is truly frightening about this incident is that it could have happened to anyone… The failed drug war and militarized border region have created an environment in which law enforcement officials increasingly inflict extreme and illegal searches on innocent Americans.”

502) Spent $914,000 to study fictional romance

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $914,000 to study “romance as told in novels, films, comics, advice books, songs, and internet fan fiction.”

Little Sisters of the Poor is a group of Catholic nuns that runs hospice care, i.e., medical care for people who are dying.

Obama doesn’t like letting these nuns practice their freedom of religion. He threatened to fine them for violating Obamacare’s birth control mandate, and planned to take his meddling all the way to the Supreme Court.

506) Michelle Snyder, the Obama official who oversaw the building of the defective Obamacare website, announced her retirement soon after the website’s defective rollout

In December 2013, Michelle Snyder, the Obama official who oversaw the building of the defective Obamacare website, announced her retirement. Obama did not fire her. By retiring, she will be allowed to collect her full pension and benefits.

507) AmeriCorps “volunteers” support Obamacare but want an exemption for themselves

AmeriCorps is a federal agency that pays so-called “volunteers” to do “charity” work.

In December 2013, it was reported that the insurance that AmeriCorps provided to its “volunteers” did not meet Obamacare’s minimum standards, and that, as a result, these “volunteers” may have to pay the Obamacare tax penalty for not having insurance.

Abby Grosslein, an AmeriCorps “volunteer” who lives in New Orleans, said:

“It would be nice if the government waived the penalty.”

Note she she did not say that the penalty was wrong, or that the penalty should be repealed. Instead, she merely wants certain people to be exempt from the penalty. This is typical of the huge number of examples on this list of liberals who support Obamacare for everyone else, but want exemptions for themselves.

508) Falsely said that he had never set a target of 7 million Obamacare enrollees by March 31, 2014

In June 2013, the Obama administration said that its goal was to have 7 million Obamacare enrollees by March 31, 2014.

At the end of December 2013, the Obama administration claimed that 2.1 million people had signed up for private insurance under Obamacare. However, this number included people who had left the insurance in their shopping cart without actually paying for it. No legitimate online retailer counts as sales items that people had left in their shopping cart without paying for.

511) Self described “cheerleader” for Obamacare says she can’t afford it for her and her son

In January 2014, CBS News reported:

One Oregon mother says that she is unable to afford health insurance for her and her 18-month-old son because it’s too expensive.

The woman — who wishes to remain anonymous — tells KOIN-TV that she originally championed President Barack Obama’s signature health care law because she thought it would help people in her situation.

“I’ve been a cheerleader for the Affordable Care Act since I heard about it and I assumed that it was designed for people in my situation,” she told KOIN. “I was planning on using the Affordable Care Act and I had done the online calculator in advance to make sure I was going to be able to afford it.”

512) Obamacare website can’t handle it when someone has a new baby

In January 2014, Associated Press reported:

For now, the HealthCare.gov website can’t handle new baby updates

513) Supports bailouts for private insurance companies

515) Made it far more expensive for parents of disabled children to pay for their health care

The Davert family lives in Bay City, Michigan. They have twins with brittle bone disease.

Under their children’s old insurance, the combined expenses for the two children were capped at $2,500 per year. However, Obamacare forced their old insurance to be canceled. Under their new Obaamacare insurance, the combined expenses for the two children are capped at $10,200 per year.

516) Illegally extended the Obamacare enrollment deadline for people with preexisting conditions

517) Gave illegal Obamacare subsidies to people in the 36 states that did not set up their own state exchanges

Only 14 states created their own Obamacare exchange.

As the Obamacare law was written, it says that Obamacare subsidies are to be given out

“through an Exchange established by the State.”

Despite the wording of the Obamacare law, Obama illegally gave Obamacare subsidies to people in the 36 states that did not set up their own exchanges.

518) Caused Bill Clinton’s favorite Washington D.C. restaurant to shut down its buffet

Filomena is Bill Clinton’s favorite Washington D.C. restaurant. On January 1, 2014, it shut down its buffet because of Obamacare.

519) Illegally delayed Obamacare’s rules on equal coverage

520) Told reporters to stop reporting his low poll numbers

In Decmember 2013, Joel Benenson, Obama’s pollster, told reporters to stop reporting Obama’s low poll numbers.

521) Falsely said that he had met his half brother only recently

On January 1, 2014, the Daily Caller reported that during 2013, Obamacare had caused a net reduction in the number of people who had insurance. On January 2, 2014, the Obama administration criticized the Daily Caller for truthfully reporting this information.

526) Obamacare website had such horrible security that it was hacked by one person in less than four minutes with nothing but a regular web browser

In January 2014, hacking expert David Kennedy was able to hack into the Obamacare website in less than four minutes, using nothing but a regular web browser. During that time, he was able to access the private information of 70,000 people.

527) Obamacare website is exempt from laws that require other websites to report security breaches to their customers

530) Forced U.S. taxpayers to bailout Fiat, an Italian company

In January 2014, it was reported that some of the money that Obama had used to bailout Chrysler ended up being used to bailout Fiat, an Italian company.

531) U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against Obama administration’s attack on religious freedom

The Obama administration tried to force Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School in Redford, Michigan, to hire someone whom it did not want to hire. In January 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against the Obama administration’s attack on religious freedom.

532) Considered revoking trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people said it was offensive

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration was considering revoking trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people said it was offensive.

This could set a horrible precedent.

Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc. The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent, trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it offensive, then I can’t even begin to imagine how much damage this would cause to the concept of intellectual property, as well as to the arts, sciences, music, literature, movies, etc.

There is no such thing as a right to not be offended. The whole point of protecting free speech in the first place is to protect speech that some people might find offensive. If we only protected speech that was dull, bland, and non-controversial, there wouldn’t be much point to having such protection in the first place.

533) Said Osama bin Laden’s former bodyguard was no longer a “significant threat” to the United States, and planned to release him

In January 2014, the Obama administration said that Mahmoud Abd Al Aziz Al Mujahid, Osama bin Laden’s former bodyguard, was no longer a “significant threat” to the United States, and planned to release him.

534) Lied about his involvement with ACORN

During a 2008 debate with John McCain, Obama falsely said that the only time he had ever been involved with ACORN was when he had represented them in a lawsuit where they tried to get Illinois to adopt a “motor-voter” law.

In realty, there were several other times that Obama had been involved with ACORN.

For example, Obama had taught leadership training sessions for ACORN.

In addition, Obama had also worked as an organizer for Project Vote, an ACORN offshoot. The New York Times quoted Obama as saying:

“Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drives in Illinois, Acorn was smack dab in the middle of it.”

Furthermore, Obama had been on the board of directors of the Woods Fund when it gave ACORN $75,000 in 2001, and $70,000 in 2002.

Also, during the 2008 primary campaign, Obama’s campaign had given Citizens Services Inc., an ACORN affiliate, more than $800,000 for “get out the vote” efforts. However, Obama’s campaign had falsely told the FEC that the money was for “staging, sound, lighting.”

535) Although Obama complains about income inequality, his own policies have made income inequality even worse

In January 2014, President Obama complained about income inequality, Wall St., wealthy investors, and bankers.

However, while Senator, Obama had voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill, which worsened the problem of income inequality, and forced poor and middle class taxpayers to bail out the very same Wall St., wealthy investors, and bankers that Obama had complained about.

Obamacare has also worsened the problem of income inequality because it has caused many employers to replace full time jobs with part time jobs in order to avoid the Obamacare employer mandate.

536) Accused lenders of “racism” without actually knowing the races of the people who had been “discriminated” against

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had accused lenders in the auto industry of “racism.” However, the auto industry does not report or keep track of the race of the people whom it lends money too, and the Obama administration’s accusation of “racism” was based on guessing the races of the people who had borrowed money.

537) Illegally gave out private info of farmers and ranchers

In July 2012, the Obama administration illegally gave out the home addresses, phone numbers, GPS coordinates, and medical histories of up to 100,000 agricultural workers.

538) Proposed giving wind farms 30 year permits to kill bald and golden eagles

Federal law prohibits the killing of bald and golden eagles, regardless of whether the killing is done on purpose or by accident. However, in January 2014, the Obama administration proposed giving wind farms 30 year permits that would allow them to kill these birds.

539) Allowed members of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, to skip TSA screening

The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. In April 2012, the Obama administration allowed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to skip TSA screening.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration gave a very invasive patdown to a three-year-old boy in a wheelchair, which caused the boy to tremble in fear. The Obama administration gave an aggressive patdown to a seven-year-old girl with cerebral palsy. The Obama administration said that a four-year-old girl was a “high security threat.” The Obama administration placed an 18-month-old girl on its no fly list. The Obama administration gave a patdown to Henry Kissinger. The Obama administration forced a 95-year-old cancer patient to remove her adult diaper and fly without it. The Obama administration ripped open the urostomy bag of a 61-year-old bladder cancer survivor, and forced him to fly covered in his own urine. The Obama administration harassed a sick 3-year-old boy, and caused him to miss his flight.

540) Obama’s nominee for ambassador to Norway “displayed total ignorance” about Norway, but he did raise more than half a million dollars for Obama’s 2012 campaign

In January 2014, the Norway edition of The Local reported that George Tsunis, Obama’s nominee for ambassador to Norway, had “displayed total ignorance” about Norway during a U.S. Senate hearing.  At the same time, the Huffington Post reported that Tsunis had raised more than half a million dollars for Obama’s 2012 campaign.

541) Obamacare encourages employers to limit the size of their workforce to no more than 49 employees

Obamacare’s employer mandate only applies to employers with 50 or more employees. This gives employers an incentive to limit the size of their workforce to no more than 49 employees.

542) Spent $2,797,979 so people in Veitnam could watch television

In January 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $2,797,979 so people in Veitnam could watch television.

543) Obama had Dinesh D’Souza arrested for making an anti-Obama film

In August 2012, Dinesh D’Souza released 2016: Obama’s America, a movie that was critical of Obama.

In January 2014, D’Souza was arrested for violating campaign finance laws.

However, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws on two different occasions (see here and here), Obama never had himself arrested.

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said of D’Souza’s arrest:

“This is clearly a case of selective prosecution for one of the most common things done during elections, which is to get people to raise money for you…If they went after everyone who did this, there would be no room in jails for murderers.”

“This is an outrageous prosecution and is certainly a misuse of resources. It raises the question of why he is being selected for prosecution among the many, many people who commit similar crimes… This sounds to me like it is coming from higher places. It is hard for me to believe this did not come out of Washington or at least get the approval of those in Washington.”

Former Federal Election Commissioner David Mason said of D’Souza’s arrest:

“What struck me first was that it is unusual in cases like these for the FBI to go out and actually arrest someone, simply because it is not necessary… And even less so in this case because [D'Souza] has enough prominence that it is fairly obvious that he is not a flight risk. White-collar indictments are made lots of times without an arrest being made.”

Commenting on D’Souza’s arrest, former acting U.S. attorney general George Terwilliger of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius said that there were

“legitimate questions that could be asked about the political motivation for bringing the case.”

Dominic Gentile of Gordon Silver, an expert on the enforcement of campaign finance law, conducted extensive research on other people who had done the same thing as D’Souza, and concluded:

“Twenty thousand dollars?”I’ve never heard of a $20,000 criminal case for campaign finance violations.”

544) Obamacare makes it harder for patients to get knee replacements, hip replacements, angioplasty, bypass surgery, and cataract operations

In January 2014, it was reported that Obamacare makes it harder for patients to get knee replacements, hip replacements, angioplasty, bypass surgery, and cataract operations.

545) Obama’s administration is “the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering”

In January 2014, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson said that Obama’s administration

“is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes — I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush’s first term.”

546) Made even more illegal changes to Obamacare

In February 2014, the New York Times reported:

The “employer mandate,” which was originally supposed to take effect last month, had already been delayed to Jan. 1, 2015, and now the administration says that employers with 50 to 99 employees will not have to comply until 2016 — allowing Democrats to placate business concerns and pushing the issue well beyond this year’s midterm elections.

In addition, the administration said the requirement would be put into effect gradually for employers with 100 or more employees. Employers in this category will need to offer coverage to 70 percent of full-time employees in 2015 and 95 percent in 2016 and later years, or they will be subject to tax penalties.

Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

547) Illegally banned employers from firing any of their employees to avoid the Obamacare mandate

In a February 2014 article about Obamacare’s employer mandate, the Washington Post reported that Obama had banned employers from “cutting back on positions just to fall below the threshold.” Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

548) Obamacare caused sick children in Seattle, Washington, to lose access to doctors

In February 2014, CBS News reported that Obamacare had caused sick children in Seattle, Washington, to lose access to doctors.

In the report, Dr. Sandy Melzer said:

“The exclusion of a major provider like Seattle Children’s from a major insurance network in this market is unprecedented… We’re seeing denials in care, disruptions in care. We’re seeing a great deal of confusion, and at times, anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought insurance, thinking that their children were going to be covered, and they’ve in fact found that it’s a false promise.”

The report can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0FHI0vFNgY

549) Falsely said that Obamacare “will cover every American”

In June 2007, Obama said

“I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American.”

However, in September 2013, the Washington Post reported

“The Congressional Budget Office estimated back in 2012, before the Supreme Court even gave states the option of opting out of the Medicaid expansion, that there would be 27 million people who lacked health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act.”

550) Obamacare’s tax on tanning salons applies to gym members who never use the gym’s tanning salons

Obamacare includes a tax on tanning salons, and this tax applies to gym members who never use the gym’s tanning salons.

551) Although Obama sued states for their “racist” requirement of voter ID, Obamacare requires ID

Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID law, claiming that it was “racist.”  Obama also sued North Carolina for requiring voter ID.

However, Obamacare requires people to provide ID.

552) Falsely said, “When I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely”

In September 2008, Obama said,

“When I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.”

However, if you search this list for the word “spent,” you will find many examples of Obama wasting the taxpayers’ money.

553) Obama refused to file charges against Hilda Solis, his Secretary of Labor, for illegally avoided reporting thousands of dollars worth of free private jet travel

In February 2014, it was reported that during conformation hearings in 2009, Hilda Solis, Obama’s Secretary of Labor, had illegally avoided reporting to the Federal Election Commission the thousands of dollars worth of free private jet travel that she had been given by the International Union of Operating Engineers. Obama refused to file any charges against her.

554) Obama falsely said, “That’s the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.”

In February 2014, Obama said:

“That’s the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.”

Obama was lying. In truth, the powers of the President are defined and limited by the U.S. Constitution. Obama does not have the legal authority to do whatever he wants. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped him from doing a huge number of illegal things that are on this list.

555) Obama’s nominee for ambassador to Argentina has never been to Argentina, but did raise more than $500,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign

In February 2014, it was reported that Noah Mamet,  Obama’s nominee for ambassador to Argentina, had never been to Argentina, but that he had raised more than $500,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign.

556) Falsely claimed he never said he wanted to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”

Five days before the 2008 election, Obama said:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

You can see and hear him saying those exact words in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrefKCaV8m4

However, on February 2, 2014, Obama told Bill O’Reilly that he never said those words. Here is the transcript from the interview:

O’Reilly: OK. I got a letter from Kathy LaMaster, Fresno, California. I said I would read one letter from the folks, all right?

Obama: All right.

O’Reilly: “Mr. President, why do you feel it’s necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and success?”

Obama: I don’t think we have to fundamentally transform the nation.

O’Reilly: But those are your words.

557) Spent $464,272 to find out why gay men in Peru get Syphilis

In February 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $464,272 to find out why gay men in Peru get Syphilis.

558) Obamacare may cause the government to seize homes from the estates of poor people

Between 1993 and 2013, the state of California seized $978.5 million worth of assets from the estates of medicaid recipients.

Obamacare requires everyone in the U.S. whose income is less than 138% of the poverty level to enroll in medicaid.

Based on those two pieces of information, it seems likely that Obamacare will result in the homes of quite a few poor people being seized by the government.

In February 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported:

One thing the ACA didn’t change was Medicaid’s estate recovery rule. Under a law enacted in 1993, states are required to seek recovery from the estates of deceased enrollees for the costs of long-term care, such as nursing-home care. The recovery rule applied to those who received that care when they were 55 and older, or who were permanently institutionalized at any age.

Medicaid eligibility for the expanded programs is based on income alone, which means there might be some new members with low incomes but sizable illiquid estates, such as homes worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The prospect of asset seizures raises people’s hackles, especially since under the Affordable Care Act, those earning less than 138% of the poverty level may be offered no choice for subsidized health insurance except Medicaid.

On the whole, the estate recovery program hasn’t been a big moneymaker for government at any level. Since 1993, California has collected $978.5 million

559) Contradicted his own advice that everyone in California should conserve water during the drought

In February 2014, when there was a drought in California, Obama said:

“It can’t just be a matter of there’s going to be less and less water so I’m going to grab more and more of a shrinking share of water… Instead what we have to do is all come together and figure out how we all are going to make sure that agricultural needs, urban needs, industrial needs, environmental and conservation concerns are all addressed.”

However, during this very same drought, Time magazine reported:

On Saturday, Obama played at the Sunnylands estate, built by the late billionaire Walter Annenberg, which features a nine-hole course that is played like 18 holes. The following day he golfed at billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s 19-hole Porcupine Creek. On Presidents’ Day, Obama hit the links at Sunnylands once again.

The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17% of all water there, and one-quarter of the water pumped out of the region’s at-risk groundwater aquifer… Each of the 124 Coachella Valley courses, on average, uses nearly 1 million gallons (3.8 million L) a day because of the hot and dry climate, three to four times more water per day than the average American golf course.

560) Falsely claimed to have increased the number of deportations of illegal immigrants

In April 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had falsely claimed to have increased the number of deportations of illegal immigrants.

561) Illegally changed the immigration laws to allow entry into the U.S. by immigrants who had supplied “limited material support” to terrorists

In February 2014, Obama changed the immigration laws to allow entry into the U.S. by immigrants who had supplied “limited material support” to terrorists. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

562) Falsely said Obamacare would not cover illegal aliens

In September 2009, Obama said:

“There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false – the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”

However, in February 2014, the Spanish version of California’s Obamacare website said:

“No temas si eres indocumentado/a y quieres inscribir a tu familia en un seguro médico.”

In English, this means:

“Fear not if you are undocumented and want to enroll your family in health insurance.”

563) A judge who was nominated by Obama confused the Declaration of Independence with the U.S. Constitution in one of her rulings

In December 2010, Obama nominated Arenda L. Wright Allen to be on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

In a February 2014 federal court ruling, judge Allen wrote

“Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal”

Those words are in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

It’s perfectly understandable why a person with no legal training might make this mistake. But for a federal judge, there’s no excuse.

564) Although Obama has always supported the U.S. income tax, he complained about the fact that U.S. Olympic athletes had to pay income taxes on their winnings

Obama has always supported the U.S. federal income tax. However, during the 2012 summer Olympics, and then again during the 2014 winter Olympics, Obama complained about the fact that U.S. Olympic athletes had to pay income taxes on their winnings.

565) Planned to illegally put government bureaucrats inside TV stations and newspaper offices to monitor their activities

In February 2014, Ajit Pai, a commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, wrote the following in the Wall St. Journal:

Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.

… the FCC’s queries may be hard for the broadcasters to ignore. They would be out of business without an FCC license…

… why does the CIN study include newspapers when the FCC has no authority to regulate print media?

Also in February 2014, the Washington Examiner wrote:

The First Amendment says “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” But under the Obama administration, the Federal Communications Commission is planning to send government contractors into the nation’s newsrooms to determine whether journalists are producing articles, television reports, Internet content, and commentary that meets the public’s “critical information needs.” Those “needs” will be defined by the administration, and news outlets that do not comply with the government’s standards could face an uncertain future. It’s hard to imagine a project more at odds with the First Amendment.

If the FCC goes forward, it’s not clear what will happen to news organizations that fall short of the new government standards. Perhaps they will be disciplined. Or perhaps the very threat of investigating their methods will nudge them into compliance with the administration’s journalistic agenda. What is sure is that it will be a gross violation of constitutional rights.

566) Illegally raised the minimum wage for employees of federal contractors

In February 2014, Obama raised the minimum wage for employees of federal contractors. Because he did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

567) Obamacare requires pizza restaurants to post the calorie counts for 34 million different combinations of pizza toppings

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare requires pizza restaurants to post the calorie counts for 34 million different combinations of pizza toppings.

568) Commander-in-Chief Obama allowed U.S. soldiers to wear Islamic beards, turbans, and hijabs as part of their military uniform

In January 2014, Commander-in-Chief Obama began allowing U.S. soldiers to wear Islamic beards, turbans, and hijabs as part of their military uniform.

569) Illegally gave Massachusetts another Obamacare waiver

In February 2014, Obama gave Massachusetts a three month extension to fix its defective Obamacare website and get people enrolled in Obamacare. This was illegal for two reasons. First, Obama did it without approval from Congress. And second, the Constitution requires that federal law apply equally to every state.

570) Obamacare prevented Chris Dunn, who was in terrible pain, from getting back surgery

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had prevented Chris Dunn, of Sonora, California, who was in terrible pain, from getting back surgery.

571) Obamacare caused leukemia patient Julie Boonstra to lose her insurance

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had caused leukemia patient Julie Boonstra, of Michigan, to lose her insurance. A video of her can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpjyr1x7mC0

572) Obamacare caused lupus patient Emilie Lamb to lose her insurance

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had caused lupus patient Emilie Lamb to lose her insurance, and that her new insurance was costing her an extra $6,000 a year in higher premiums and co-pays. A video of her can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxImgr13N1k

573) More than 12,000 Congressional staffers enrolled in Obamacare’s “small-business” exchange even though they did not own or work for a small business

In February 2014, it was reported that more than 12,000 Congressional staffers had enrolled in Obamacare’s “small-business” exchange even though they did not own or work for a small business.

574) Obamacare caused cancer patient and Republican U.S. Senator Tom Coburn to lose his oncologist

Tom Coburn is a Republican U.S. Senator from Oklahoma. He voted against Obamacare. He has prostate cancer. In January 2014, it was reported that Obamacare had caused his insurance coverage to be reduced, and his oncologist was no longer covered. Coburn started paying out of his own pocket to continue seeing the doctor who was treating his cancer.

575) Obamacare’s 29 hour work week disproportionately hurt women

In January 2014, the New York Times wrote:

A “29er” refers to someone working 29 hours per week, the maximum that an hourly employee can work and still be considered part time by the federal government, as defined under the Affordable Care Act.

Part-time employees do not create a health-insurance requirement or a penalty for their employer, which gives large and small employers an incentive to reduce at least some employees’ hours to 29 hours.

I used the Census Bureau’s data to put together a sample of people likely to be 29ers over the next couple of years, based on working 30 to 37 hours per week before this year and not having health insurance available through a spouse (if married). Women outnumber men more than 2 to 1 among likely 29ers. The 29ers are also likely to be less than 30 years old.

Naturally, working fewer hours means less pay. By disproportionately reducing women’s work hours, health reform may have the unintended consequence of increasing the gap between men’s and women’s wages and salaries.

576) Some Obamacare “navigators” had been previously convicted of identity theft

In January 2014, it was reported that some Obamacare “navigators” had been previously convicted of forgery. In August 2013, it had been reported that the Obama administration would not be doing background checks on Obamacare “navigators,” despite the fact that these “navigators” would have access to people’s personal, private, and financial information. Obama considers background checks to be “racist.”

577) WTAE shows small business employees complaining about the high cost of Obamacare

WTAE is the ABC TV station in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In this video, they show small business employees complaining about the high cost of Obamacare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuA2_P-m4Sk

578) “Public Sector Cuts Part-Time Shifts to Bypass Insurance Law”

In February 2014, the New York Times reported:

Public Sector Cuts Part-Time Shifts to Bypass Insurance Law

Cities, counties, public schools and community colleges around the country have limited or reduced the work hours of part-time employees to avoid having to provide them with health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, state and local officials say.

Among those whose hours have been restricted in recent months are police dispatchers, prison guards, substitute teachers, bus drivers, athletic coaches, school custodians, cafeteria workers and part-time professors.

In Medina, Ohio, about 30 miles south of Cleveland, Mayor Dennis Hanwell said the city had lowered the limit for part-time employees to 29 hours a week, from 35. Workers’ wages were reduced accordingly, he said.

Lawrence County, in western Pennsylvania, reduced the limit for part-time employees to 28 hours a week, from 32. Dan Vogler, the Republican chairman of the county Board of Commissioners, said the cuts affected prison guards and emergency service personnel at the county’s 911 call center.

In Virginia, part-time state employees are generally not allowed to work more than 29 hours a week on average over a 12-month period. Thousands of part-time state employees had been working more than that

To hold down the work hours of school bus drivers, Vigo County has reduced field trips for children and cut back transportation to athletic events. School employees who had two part-time jobs totaling more than 30 hours a week — for example, bus driver and basketball coach — were required to give up one of the jobs.

The Obama administration says “there is absolutely no evidence” of any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act.

The American Federation of Teachers lists on its website three dozen public colleges and universities in 15 states that it says have restricted the work assignments of adjunct or part-time faculty members to avoid the cost of providing health insurance.

The University of Akron, in Ohio, has cut back the hours of 400 part-time faculty members who were teaching more than 29 hours a week, said Eileen Korey, a spokeswoman for the school.

579) Kathleen Sebelius falsely said “There is absolutely no evidence — and every economist will tell you this — that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act.”

In February 2014, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said:

“There is absolutely no evidence — and every economist will tell you this — that there is any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act.”

However, in November 2012, in response to the Obamacare’s medical device tax, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare’s medical device tax had destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from being created.

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democratic hypocrites who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

580) “Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care rollout”

In January 2014, the Washington Post reported:

Labor union officials say Obama betrayed them in health-care rollout

Leaders of two major unions, including the first to endorse Obama in 2008, said they have been betrayed by an administration that wooed their support for the 2009 legislation with promises to later address the peculiar needs of union-negotiated insurance plans that cover millions of workers.

Their complaints reflect a broad sense of disappointment among many labor leaders, who say the Affordable Care Act has subjected union health plans to new taxes and mandates while not allowing them to share in the subsidies that have gone to private insurance companies competing on the newly created exchanges.

After dozens of frustrating meetings with White House officials over the past year, including one with Obama, a number of angry labor officials say their members are far less likely to campaign and turn out for Democratic candidates in the midterm elections.

“We want to hold the president to his word: If you like your health-care coverage, you can keep it, and that just hasn’t been the case,” said Donald “D.” Taylor, president of Unite Here, the union that represents about 400,000 hotel and restaurant workers and provided a crucial boost to Obama by endorsing him just after his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton had won the New Hampshire primary.

Taylor and Terry O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, laid out their grievances this week in a terse letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), saying they are “bitterly disappointed” in the administration.

581) Illegally seized more than one million dollars in tip money from a stripper

583) 70% of California doctors boycotted Obamacare, but California’s Obamacare website falsely said they were participating

In December 2013, it was reported that 70% of California doctors were boycotting Obamacare. However, many of these doctors were falsely listed on California’s Obamacare website as participating in Obamacare.

584) A self described “complete fan of the Affordable Care Act” who had cancer complained that Obamacare had caused her to lose coverage for her oncologist

Danielle Nelson lives in Aliso Viejo, California. She has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. After she found out that Obamacare had caused her to lose coverage for her oncologist, she said:

“I’m a complete fan of the Affordable Care Act, but now I can’t sleep at night.”

585) Caused U.S. ranking in the World Press Freedom Index to fall by 14 places in just one year

The World Press Freedom Index in an annual ranking of countries created by Reporters Without Borders. During just one year of Obama’s presidency, from 2013 to 2014, the U.S. ranking on the list fell by 14 places, dropping from #32 to #46.

586) During Obama’s first five years as President, marketable U.S. debt more than doubled

During the five year period that ended at the end of January 2014, marketable U.S. debt increased from $5.7 trillion at to $11.8 trillion.

587) Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website that enrolled zero people

Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website. As of February 28, 2014, exactly zero people had signed up at Oregon’s Obamacare website.

588) Illegally shut down a privately owned farm in Tehama County, California

In early 2013, the Obama administration shut down Duarte Nursery in Tehama County, California, without due process.

589) Obamacare’s medical device tax destroyed or prevented the creation of 33,000 jobs

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare’s medical device tax had destroyed 14,000 jobs, and had prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from being created.

590) A convicted terrorist who murdered two people was hired as an Obamacare “navigator”

In Israel, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted of putting a bomb in a box of candy on a grocery store shelf, which killed two people. In 2013, she was hired as an Obamacare “navigator.” Obamacare “navigators” are not subject to federal background checks, because Obama considers them to be “racist.”

591)  Harry Reid falsely said that “all” Obamacare horror stories were “untrue”

In February 2014, Senate majority leader Harry Read said:

“There’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue.”

You can see him saying it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSJOLivL-NU

He was lying. This list contains many true Obamacare horror stories.

592) Congressman Gary Peters threatened to revoke the licenses of TV stations if they continued airing an anti-Obamacare ad

In February 2014, Congressman Gary Peters (D-Michigan) had his lawyers sent a letter to TV stations, threatening to revoke their licenses if they continued airing an anti-Obamacare ad. The ad can see seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kpjyr1x7mC0

593) Obamacare caused Catherine Blackwood to lose coverage for her cancer medications

594) Approved giving 200 Abrams tanks to a Shariah dictatorship

Obama approved giving 200 Abrams tanks to Egypt, which is a Shariah dictatorship.

595) Obamacare won’t let people switch from one Obamacare plan to another

Andrew Robinson lives in Orlando, Florida. In early 2014, after he enrolled in one Obamacare plan, he changed his mind and decided that he wanted a different plan. Over a period of several weeks, he spent 50 hours on the phone trying to cancel his original Obamacare plan, but was not allowed to do so.

596) Falsely said “You can’t say the Affordable Care Act has killed job growth”

In February 2014, White House health care adviser Phil Schiliro said:

“You can’t say the Affordable Care Act has killed job growth.”

However, in November 2012, in response to the medical device tax that is part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In February 2014, it was reported that Obamacare’s medical device tax had destroyed 14,000 jobs, and prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from being created.

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democrats who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

597) A doctor summed up Obamacare in one sentence

In August 2012, Dr. Barbara Bellar of Chicago, Illinois, summed up Obamacare with the following sentence:

 “So, let me get this straight (this is a long sentence), we’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a congress that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke… so what the blank could possibly go wrong?”

You can see a video of her saying it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdnY8r7_fLw

598) Tried to shut down organic farms that had not done anything wrong

In February 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported:

Now, farmers are discovering that the FDA’s proposed rules would curtail many techniques that are common among organic growers, including spreading house-made fertilizers, tilling cropland with grazing animals, and irrigating from open creeks.

Suddenly, from small family operations nestled in the foothills of Appalachia to the sophisticated organic-grower networks that serve Los Angeles and San Francisco, the farms that celebrity chefs and food-conscious consumers jostle to buy from are facing an unexpected adversary.

They’re fighting back. Even though full enforcement of the rules is still years away, they are warning customers that some farms would have to close.

“They are going to drive farms out of business,” said Dave Runsten, policy director for Community Alliance with Family Farmers in Davis, Calif.

“The consumer groups behind this don’t understand farming,” Runsten says. “They talk out of both sides of their mouth. They demand these one-size-fits-all regulations, then say, ‘I don’t want to hurt those cute little farmers at the farmers market. I shop at the farmers market.’ It is frustrating.”

Many farmers who take part in the locally grown food movement argue that contamination is a problem of industrial-sized farms and that some of the practices the FDA might ban actually make consumers safer.

599) Illegally put the medical and financial information of more than 5,000 veterans on the internet, after ignoring warnings about problems with security

In February 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally put the medical and financial information of more than 5,000 veterans on the internet, after ignoring warnings about problems with security.

600) New York Times and Ralph Nader criticized Obama for illegally seizing private property and violating disclosure laws

In February 2014, the New York Times and Ralph Nader criticized Obama for illegally seizing assets from shareholders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and for illegally avoiding disclosing this information to shareholders.

The fifth amendment requires that compensation be given for such seizures, but Obama did not do this.

Federal disclosure laws require that shareholders be informed of this information immediately, but Obama waited more than three years to tell them.

In February 2014, the New York Times wrote:

Would you buy stock in a company that barred you from sharing in its future earnings? Of course not. Participating in the upside is what stock ownership is all about.

And yet, as of December 2010, holders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac common stock were subject to such a restriction by the United States government. They didn’t know it at the time, though, because the policy was not disclosed.

This month, an internal United States Treasury memo that outlined this restriction came up at a forum in Washington.

The memo was addressed to Timothy F. Geithner, then the Treasury secretary, from Jeffrey A. Goldstein, then the under secretary for domestic finance. In discussing Fannie and Freddie, the beleaguered government-sponsored enterprises rescued by taxpayers in September 2008, the memo referred to “the administration’s commitment to ensure existing common equity holders will not have access to any positive earnings from the G.S.E.’s in the future.”

The memo, which was produced in a lawsuit filed by Fannie and Freddie shareholders, was dated Dec. 20, 2010. Securities laws require material information — that is, information that might affect an investor’s view of a company — to be disclosed. That the government would deny a company’s shareholders all its profits certainly seems material, but the existence of this policy cannot be found in the financial filings of Fannie Mae. Neither have the Treasury’s discussions about the future of the two finance giants mentioned the administration’s commitment to shut common stockholders out of future earnings.

In February 2014, Ralph Nader wrote:

“What legal authority does the Administration have, as this section of the memo intimates, to completely wipe out shareholders — even after taxpayers have been repaid (as is likely to happen soon)?”

“Contrary to this statement, neither the memo — nor Treasury’s actions by unilaterally amending the PSPAs — leaves one with the impression that this point in the memo is meant to highlight the importance of repaying the taxpayers. It seems to be setting a precedent for using and abusing the GSEs’ shareholders.”

“Taxpayers should recoup their investment in the GSEs; but the Administration does not have to wipe out shareholders in order for this to happen.”

“This need not be an issue of choosing taxpayers over shareholders. The federal government has similarly recouped taxpayer money used to bailout other corporations (A.I.G., Citigroup, etc.) involved in the financial collapse, but has allowed the shareholders of those companies to share in their recovery. The same should be the case with the GSEs.”

601) Illegally gave Obamacare subsidies to people who bought insurance from somewhere other than the Obamacare website

As it was passed by Congress, Obamacare only gives subsidies to people who buy insurance at the Obamacare website. However, in February 2014, Obama allowed people who bought insurance from somewhere other than the Obamacare website to get these subsidies. Because Obama made this change without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

602) An estimated 65% of small businesses that already had insurance will pay higher premiums because of Obamacare

In February 2014, it was reported that an estimated 65% of small businesses that already had insurance would pay higher premiums because of Obamacare.

603) Allowed anti-gay Muslim preacher who wants homosexuals to be executed into the U.S. to spread his message to mosques in 17 U.S. cities

Sheikh Mohammad Rateb al-Nabulsi is a Muslim preacher from Syria who has called for homosexuals to be executed. In March 2014, Obama gave him a visa so he could spread his message to mosques in 17 U.S. cities.

604) Illegally gave unions an exemption from Obamacare’s “reinsurance” tax

Obamacare includes a so-called “reinsurance” tax. In March 2014, Obama gave unions an exemption from this tax. This was illegal for two reasons. First, Obama made this change without approval from Congress. And second, the Constitution requires that laws apply equally to everyone.

605) Illegally delayed Obamacare’s minimum standards for certain insurance policies until after the 2016 election

Obamacare’s minimum standards for insurance policies were required to take effect on January 1, 2014. However, in March 2014, Obama delayed these standards for certain insurance policies until after the 2016 election. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

606) Illegally extended Obamacare’s open enrollment period for 2015

In March 2014, Obama extended Obamacare’s open enrollment period for 2015. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

607) Unite Here said Obamacare “threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage.”

Unite Here is a union that represents 300,000 employees in the hotel and restaurant industries. It supported Obama in both elections.

In March 2014, Unite Here said:

“If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage.”

“… the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage.”

“Obamacare will cost our members the equivalent of a significant pay cut to keep their hard-won benefits.”

“… it will inevitably lead to the destruction of the health care plans we were promised we could keep.”

608) Doctor who survived breast cancer said “Under Obamacare, I’d be dead.”

Dr. Katherine Albrecht lives in Nashua, New Hampshire. After she was diagnosed with breast cancer, doctors at her local hospital told her there was nothing they could do for her. So, she went to experts at the Dana Farber Cancer Center in Boston, Massachusettes, who saved her life. She later received follow up care at Cornell Breast Cancer Center in New York City. Her insurance paid for her treatment at both of these out-of-state facilities.

Afterward, her insurance policy was canceled, because it did not meet Obamacare’s minimum requirements.

Her new, Obamacare-compliant policy does not cover treatment in Boston, New York, or any other out-of-state medical facility.

She said of this:

“Under Obamacare, I’d be dead.”

609) Tried to censor the Center for American Progress

In March 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had called the Center for American Progress to complain about its accurate report that Obama’s troop surge in Afghanistan had more troops than the highest number during Bush’s presidency.

614) Obamacare refused to provide insurance to a business which had paid its Obamacare premiums for three months

United Reported Publishing is a business in Folsom, California. As of March 2014, it had paid its Obamacare premiums for the past three months, but had not received the insurance that it had paid for. When the company called the Obamacare customer service phone number to try to find out why, the Obamacare customer service refused to do anything to help them.

615) Threatened to fine a law abiding citizen $75,000 a day for legally building a stock pond on his own private property

Andy Johnson lives in Wyoming. He obtained a permit to legally build a stock pond on his own private property. However, in March 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had threatened to fine him $75,000 a day for building it.

616) Skipped National Security meeting so he could attend a film festival

618) Got even worse regarding his violations of the Freedom of Information Act

In 2013, Obama’s violations of the Freedom of Information Act were even worse than during the previous years of his presidency.

619) Illegally changed Obamacare’s medical loss ratio provision

Obamacare has a medical loss ratio provision which requires insurers to spend at least 80% of premiums on health care. In March 2014, Obama changed this percentage. Because Obama made this change without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

620) Tried to censor the ACLU and NAACP

In March 2014, it was reported that the ACLU and the NAACP had criticized the Obama administration’s proposal for new regulations that would restrict the speech of non-profit organizations during election campaigns.

622) Democratic Underground’s WilliamPitt said Obamacare caused his wife to lose coverage for her multiple sclerosis medicine, and called Obama a “used-car salesman”

In March 2014, Democratic Underground’s WilliamPitt wrote: (I have redacted the vulgar language from the original)

What I’ve learned about the Affordable Care Act

What I’ve learned after a three-month war with these fiends: the ACA says the insurance companies cannot deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, which is true as far as it goes. But they can deny coverage for the life-saving medications necessary to treat those conditions. The insurance company I signed up with through the ACA exchange just denied coverage of my wife’s multiple sclerosis medication. We’re “covered,” to the tune of $700 a month…just not for what she really needs.

A cozy loophole, that.

F*** you, insurance industry.

F*** you, Mr. President, you piece of s*** used-car salesman.

From my heart and soul, f*** you.

624) Illegally rewrote the Freedom of Information Act to prevent the release of politically sensitive documents

Larry Basich lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. He started paying his Obamacare premiums in November 2013, for coverage that was supposed to start on January 1, 2014. He paid his premiums every month.

634) Obamacare author said it will cause most employers to stop offering insurance

In March 2014, the New York Times reported:

Why Employers Will Stop Offering Health Insurance

Here’s a prediction: By 2025, “fewer than 20 percent of workers in the private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health insurance.” The source of this claim? Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, in his just-published book, “Reinventing American Health Care.”

Dr. Emanuel is an accomplished oncologist, medical ethicist and academic (and contributing opinion writer to The New York Times). And, of course, he’s no stranger to politics: He helped craft the Affordable Care Act as a health policy adviser to the Obama administration, when his brother, Rahm, now the mayor of Chicago, was chief of staff.

… he argues, the so-called Cadillac tax on especially generous health plans, set to take effect in 2018, will help pave the way by discouraging companies from offering those plans.

    thank you for the list i had only counted thus far 100 documented lies, but this list clears up the other 150 hundred which i had a feeling about but did not do the investigative work. really, he needs to be handcuffed and dragged before a grand jury, tried , convicted and hung for treason. this is what he deserves.

        Obama supporters are ALREADY hysterical. Besides, most lack the concentration span to read something like this.

      Thanks for posting this as I know it shows how stupid you Obama haters are, I made comments for quite a while giving examples of the idiocy displayed until finally squirrel man gave up as he didn’t like he was losing this conversation, the idiots who see these things as significant corruption make a democratic majority for the next 20 years almost garunteed. The people who listen to this idiocy forget one thing about Mr. Obama and other great leaders and that is this simple fact:
      ITS NOT CORRUPTION IF IT HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT THE DOWNTRODDEN AND THE OTHERS HURT BY REPUBLICAN CORRUPTION WHICH IS TRUE CORRUPTION, CORRUPTION THAT HURTS THE OPPRESSED AS DEMONSTRATED BY MOST REPUB LEADERS.

        Bias has no standing in a court of law. Bias by any claim of my need to break the is more important than anyone elses right not to have that law broken, is jst law breaking.
        FACT: Obama is the greatest known public liar in presidential history, is and/or causing all subsequent law breaking. Slander is slander, Obama slanders.

        There is always at least one idiot like James who, in the face of reality, will continue to believe in their fantasies, against all evidence to the contrary, which will allow them to continue to support a failed President as is Ohbongo. It would be fun to hear from James on the day he realizes he is getting screwed by his false god, and he can no longer deny what has happened in the real world.

        This idiot continues to babble on incoherently in his support for Ohbongo. Truth is, he has not countered even one of the lies told by Ohbongo.

        what a puke

      • Uncle Vladdi replied:

        There’s no perverse crime a lefty won’t compromise with or Submit to!

        Liberals racists can invariably be relied on to ignore even the worst depredations of muslims, under the blanket alibi/excuse of:

        “Who Are We To Say Our Culture Is Better Than Theirs?”

        The guaranteed liberal response to the threat of the muslim conquest of the West is always:
        “So what?! We’re worse than them so we deserve it!”

        All criminals insist: “Trust me, you have no right to self-defense!”

        Both muslim and liberal idolaters love having predeterministic excuses to deflect from their own crimes: that’s there is no real evil, crime nor criminals, because we’re really all only helpless victims – liberals say, of society, products of our environments, and muslims all claim to be helpless slaves of allah. They collect excuses like clipping coupons, so of course they’re interested in each other. Come to think of it, they are also both forms of masochism, pre-emptively inflicting despair and failure, so as to be able to pretend to “control” it all; i.e: “Screw you – I MEANT TO DO THAT! Whee!”

        So who’s worse – some poor illiterate muslims whose ancestors were among Muhammad’s first victims, who have been indoctrinated into the global extortion-racket crime syndicate of islam since birth to lie to everyone, all the time – or “our leaders” who were born into freedom and affluence?

        Obviously, “our leaders” are infinitely more culpable criminals than the muslim gangsters they conspire as willing criminal accessories to enable and support.

        “Voting them out” isn’t good enough – it may be a start to the process, but it must end with their being arrested, indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced – for treason.

        Both the Left and Islam want idolatrous pre-deterministic might-makes-right excuses for their crimes; they want the false victim-blaming right to continue to pretend to be victims, and the false right to remain irresponsibly in the wrong! The left pretends we are all helpless victims of “society,” and robotic products of our environment, while islam pretends we are all slaves of “allah.” They hate Judeo-Christianity, because it teaches personal self-reliant responsibility and Reason (see Isaiah) and to light a candle to help our selves, not slanderous victimology alibi excuses for doing nothing but whine and curse the darkness, which is their preference.

        Liberals are simply criminals who believe they can have rights without responsibilities, which is why they abdicate their oaths.

        Their slanderously victim-blaming “pre-emptively defensive” (predatory criminal agressor) stance, is that only they have rights, while everyone else only has responsibilities; they always attack all others first by slanderously accusing them of crimes for which they have absolutely no evidence (hence their onus preference for guilty until never proven innocent, thereby forcing their victims to try to impossibly prove a negative), so that, by keeping their victims always on the defensive, their victims will never have the time to attack them first. It’s all part of their self-defeating, short-circuiting us(me) versus them, might-makes-right stance of pain or be pained, criminal victimology. The Adversary is adversarial.

        And since leftists, like their muslim brethren, are group-might-makes-right extortion-oriented criminals, and criminals are lying frauds, who can be always repied on to engage in idolatrous victim-blaming slander alibi excuses.

        Hence liberals will always perversely reverse reality in their narratives: Muslims threaten us all? Nonsense! We must be threatening the muslims, so the obvious solution to our (i.e: your) racism is to place muslims in positions of power over us, to falsely misrepresent everything everyone says as its exact opposite, and to show propaganda adverts which pretend the (racist liberal-assumed) swarthy inferior races which are still in the minority (but only here, not really worldwide, where in fact Whites are the real minority) have the same numbers as we do, and in fact can be equally falsely portrayed as being freedom-loving, civilized liberals happy to be here, too! Whee!

        ;-(

        But back in reality, MULTICULTURALISM IS RACISM, and so it’s also slander, too!

        Islam is an intolerant, genocidal monocultural extortion-racket CRIME-syndicate, so it’s “muslim” gang members are actually offended by white liberal guilt and racism!

        As many raped and murdered white liberal multiculturalist women could attest to!

        @ Raymond Story – yeah it’s probably WAY worse than any of us realize. This is the universal ‘rule of thumb’ for all things related to King Hussein. In other words, if this was a few decades ago, we should be asking your questions (and we still should)…but now it is probably just raw embezzlement. Moo Shell probably called up her GF and made a deal to divvy up half a billion. After all, John Corzine the former NJ governor got away with stealing OVER ONE BILLION. And nothing ever happened to him. Nothing and I do mean absolutely-nothing-at-all would surprise me with the current adminstration. The reason I say all of this,is that we have been conditioned to continue to look/give the benefit of the doubt/wonder when we should have for YEARS now talking about PUTTING THESE CRIMINALS IN ORANGE JUMPSUITS, NOW ! ! ! ! ! !

        Next week we’ll probably find out that they eat live babies for breakfast, that they have given al-qaeda 100 billion dollars and access to 5 TNT manufacturing facilities, and that they have enacted an official racist tax of one hundred percent against Typical White People. I am intentionally being absurd here, but the point is that every time our opinions and expectations are set by a certain issue, they get lowered and lowered more still. Right now it’s below cockroach-level for me. No wait, that was last week. Before he lied literally dozens of times even in the same speech, about ‘keep your policy’. This week it is sub-sub-sub-cockroach. DAMN it is getting crowded under this bus!

      • Lonnie replied:

        Wow James is a perfect example of why stupid ignorant people should not breed. His stupidity shows comparing Obama with a great leader when he has done nothing while in office and that is FACT well he has raised the deficit and goes on many vacations. Now I am sure James will come back with a stupid comment like he has for all the other people who has pointed out how dumb he is and we all know why he does that and that is because the truth hurts. My pet rock has a higher IQ than he does that is a FACT. I have to give him credit though because I am impressed that he can even type being brain dead. He should be the poster board for birth control unfortunately he must have found a person to breed with that has no IQ like him. The apple don’t fall far from the tree so I guess the future of his breeding will bring more stupid ignorant people (if that’s what you want to call them) into this world. His post is not worth a reply only his ignorance and stupidity is. I wonder if his parents had any kids that have a brain. If he thinks Obama has done such a great job let him pay off the deficit. I doubt he can because he probably does not work and if he does I am sure it is for under minimum wage. Now he will accuse me of being a republican or dumb but that will again show his stupidity on talking about things he does not know. First I vote for who I think is the right candidate second I am in Mensa which I am sure he has no idea of what that is. I am sure that idiot still thinks the world is flat. He also would not know facts if it was right in front of his face. But that would require a brain which he does not have. Well he has one it just does not function well with an IQ of less than 1. Like I said my pet rock has a higher IQ than he does. The only false scandal here is James himself pretending to be human and to have an IQ over 1 which we all know it is less than that. I would not expect anything else from him pretending to be human and smart just like Obama is pretending to be president. James do the world a favor and stay off the computer because that just shows your true ignorance and stupidity and keep your stupid comments and stupid thoughts to yourself. What truly shows your stupidity is you have no facts to back anything you say up but then I am sure you have no clue on how to get facts. You have no clue on what you are talking about and no facts to prove your case. Also try not to talk to people because if they have to listen to your stupid thoughts or ideas I would hate to see them have to lower their IQ just to hear you. Lucky for them there IQ will raise again after you stop talking unlike yours. Another true test of your stupidity is talking about him helping the environment that in itself shows you do not read at all or research anything because then you know the truth about that. Now I could leave a link to prove this but I am not here to educate you but then you do not know how to read anyway. Like I said do us all a favor and stay off the computer and keep you ignorant stupid thoughts to yourself and if you can go get a job and please stop breeding because the world can use less ignorant stupid people like yourself. You will also probably call me an Obama hater which I am not but the FACT is he is the worst president in history. I hate to even call him president because a president helps the country not harms it but again you would know nothing about that because you are to dense to see it with no IQ.

        I got this into your web page: http://capoliticalnews.com/2014/02/16/obamacare-recruiting-illegals-in-california/  ObamaCare in California Recruiting Illegal Aliens.   REALLY BAD NEWS.   In passing ObamaCare it was said illegal aliens were not ever included in ObamaCare. Now ObamaCares is recruiting illegal aliens in California. Looks like illegal aliens will get ObamaCare for free (poverty income). Evidence: article at and http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/02/14/Obamacare-Enrolling-Illegals-in-California   

      • BGills replied:

        Remember just a few years ago the estimated number of illegal-aliens here in the U.S. was nearly 30 Million?
        It wasn’t long before that number was revised to around 20 Million, and the most recent lie claims around 11 Million. These reductions certainly aren’t reflective of deportations numbers, but instead can be explained in part by the status change of the poor, unfortunate children, of those who entered this country illegally, who were granted temporary legal status by Executive order. Change the law to reflect the numbers you want! Yea, that’s the ticket…
        Of course they’re recruiting illegals to enroll in Obamacare, it’s the only way they can quickly boost the number of enrollees to make their signature legislation appear successful, and on track with their faulty projections.
        It’s how they jam a square peg, into a round hole. Can’t figure out how to solve the “Rubix-Cube?” Just tear off all the stickers, and put them where they belong! After all, it doesn’t matter how you did it, just as long as you can point to it something that resembles success.
        Don’t like the unemployment numbers? Change the definition of “unemployed” to reflect desperately needed positive numbers. Just another deception, in a long laundry list of prevarications meant to cast a positive light on an obviously failed administration. An administration, I might add, that absolutely refuses to admit responsibility for anything, and is more than willing to change every single law on the books, simply to legitimize their incompetence.
        I.R.S. targeting of Conservatives? No problem, the solution is obvious to a Constitutional expert like Obama… Just change the rules to legitimize any wrong doing. “Not a smidgen…” After the rule changes that is.
        Repeat the lie long enough, or with sufficient frequency, and eventually it will be accepted as truth… by the ignorant.
        The New Democrat Party, redefining America, the dictionary, the Law, and even the truth, just to fit their Socialist agenda.

      • Fred replied:

        Define socialism?

      • BGills replied:

        Fred, undoubtedly your definition of Socialism, and mine, will differ…
        Your previous comments suggest you believe Socialism to be a good thing, while I see it for the failed experiment, of Utopian seeking Liberals everywhere, who endlessly find fault where little, or none, lay. It has repeatedly been sold to the ignorant, apathetic, and morally dishonest, as a short-cut to happiness. It has only ever served to offer false hope, while simultaneously snatching that hope away from those who need it most. It has never, without exception, succeeded to do anything, but relegate those who live under it’s oppressive rule, to poverty, oppression, and the fear of one’s own government.
        It is the antithesis of freedom, and the pursuit of happiness!
        So what’s your definition?

        According to the dictionary; Socialism is a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting the ownership and control of the means of production in the distribution, of capital, land, etc.,in the community as a whole. Your def. differs from the dictionary, which I rely on.

      • BGills replied:

        The definition, of a word, according to the dictionary, doesn’t always accurately reflect the daily application of a particular word, in a realistic day to day manner of usage. For instance, the definition you’ve sited, doesn’t once mention any of the debilitating, or negative effects of a system that has only ever resulted in the oppressive subjugation of the masses who were foolish enough to adopt it as some sort of shortcut to happiness. The “community as a whole” is never allowed the freedom to allocate resources, and instead have always been forced to relent to the oppressive government dictates of their Socialist masters. There are many varieties of socialism, and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them. So even your precious dictionary, in it’s own definition of the word: Socialism, acknowledges the inability to properly capture, or fully define, the true nature of such a word.
        If you are willing to live under it’s oppressive dictates, give up your freedoms for the “greater good,” then you might find happiness with such a system. One needs only look to the happiness enjoyed by the people of places like China, the former Soviet Union, or the incredibly blissful existence enjoyed by the people of North Korea, to get a sense of life under Socialist dictate.
        So good luck with that, your going to need it!

      • Fred replied:

        U jest…Your the 1 who’s calling the nation being a socialist country. It isn’t nor do I want it. Stop your nonsense about socialism.

      • Greg P. replied:

        Fred, it isn’t nonsense, I am not going to waste my time listing all of the examples of it we have here in the United States., but for starters, look at Obamacare, The rules and mandates of this un-affordable boondogle is a perfect example of it.

      • Fred replied:

        That’s not socialism.

      • BGills replied:

        No, I’m not kidding… nor am I suggesting this nation to be a Socialist one. I was merely pointing out the fact that Socialist are currently, firmly in charge of the Democrat Party, and the danger such an alliance poses this nation.
        Their habitual advancement of Socialist ideals, exposes them for what they truly are. If you espouse the virtuous nature of their actions, then you believe as they do…
        Your previous comments of encouragement for James goforth, clearly suggests an ideological kinship with him. Just because you can’t see something, (ignorance of the law is no excuse) makes you no less guilty of the treachery being imposed through your acceptance.
        Democrats simply refuse to acknowledge the socialist nature, or demographic, of their current party, and that makes them, at the very least, enablers. Some, might go so far as to say, they are co-conspirators of Socialist take-over.

      • Fred replied:

        You believe Democrats r socialists? Because of the ACA? Nobody is coming for guns. And what law r we ignorant too? Remember the ACA is constitutional. I hate to inform u that James understands the law and I was sworn to uphold the law.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        Which definition do you want defined?
        The Democrats version of socialism or the Republicans version?
        Frankly I don’t think you can handle the Republicans version of socialism so I will give you the Democrats version.
        The Democrats version is give till it hurts and always agree with the president without question.
        Oh what the heck I’ll give you the Republicans version.
        Now I know damn well you are not going to agree with me because of the way you have been indoctrinated into the DNC, but to a Republican socialism is taking the rights of others away from others. Socialism is the forcing of something on others when others don’t want it. Socialism is the promising to do something and then turn around and doing just the opposite. Socialism is being the president and doing away with the rules and congress. Socialism is the raising of taxes of the working class to give to those that don’t want to work and believe the government must take care of them.
        I believe that will do for starters. As you can see the Republican version thus far more extensive then your version.
        Democrats do not care WHO gets hurt as long as it is not themselves.
        I have been told that if there is not a “D” behind your name you are a no body you are not supposed to be here. I have even been told that I am old and I need to be in my grave making food for the worms.
        See one thing the Libs are good at and that is insulting others but when others return the “favor” that is wrong and 99 our ot 100 Conservatives get into trouble because the “offended” the Libs with the Conservatives words.

      • Fred replied:

        Whattttttttttttt?” r u on???????????

      • BGills replied:

        Fred, you still haven’t provided “your” definition of Socialism, and whether YOU believe it to be meritorious, or even superior to Capitalism. You’ve simply denied it’s influence in an organization dominated by those who have numerous ties to the ideology, while simultaneously suggesting it’s influence to be benign, or even irrelevant.
        So, I’m just trying to figure out, if your in denial by choice, through deception, or simply ignorant…

      • Fred replied:

        BG, what other screen names do u have? The USA is not socialist and is not becoming one. Just because u dislike the ACA doesn’t mean I or others r socialists or ignorant. In fact, if u understood the ACA you’d know that it extends Medicare and lowers the deficit.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        Why do you keep avoiding to answer BG’s question?
        You know who he is and IMO you have not a clue of what the answer is and with you avoiding the question only gives you ample time to find the answer.
        See that is what makes Liberals so hated is they never give a straight forward answer but will walk circles around it just to avoid no answering the question BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW THE ANSWERS.
        You know this is what I like about being a Republican now. … You can take the Democrat out of the party but you cannot take the party ouf ot the Democrat. Now in case you don’t understand what that means is, seeing that I spent 46 years being a Liberal I can educate the Republicans how the Democrats think…and being an elected official at one time that makes it even better.

      • Fred replied:

        U need to read, I have provided answers.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        And YOU need to be straigh forward with your answers.
        You have NOT answered one of the questions any of us Dan, BG, Michael, myself have asked in the past. You have avoided them all.
        I am surprised you have the time to respond even this far.
        I am willing to bet that you would cream your jeans if Obama came to you face to face and asked a question. You’d have an answer before Obama put a period at the end of the sentence.
        Read ALL the threads and show me where you have answered any of Dan’s questions. or BG’s questions.

      • BGills replied:

        Fred has answered, to the best of his abilities, all the questions posed him, and that is the saddest part of his participation in any form of discussion here. He merely parrots left wing talking points that he doesn’t fully understand, but instead assumes them to be the valid points of the very best the Demorats have to offer. Since he is incapable of independent thought, he relies exclusively on a hive-mind of imbeciles to justify his beliefs, as do most of his comrades.
        Fred claimed in an earlier comment, that he had swore an oath to uphold the Law, which is truly a frightening revelation. Especially considering one must at least have a basic understanding of the law, and the concepts on which those laws were formed, before they could ever uphold those Laws fairly.
        Fred is a flawless copy of the fictional character Barney Fife, from the Andy Griffith show. Always claiming to be an authority on subjects he knows little, or nothing about, but ready at a moments notice to inject his pearls of wisdom, in a desperate plea for attention. Like Barney he’s an endless source of entertainment, but the thought of him actually having power over anyone, or anything…
        The prospect that he might actually occupy a position of authority… is truly frightening. He offers the perfect argument for limited government powers at all levels, and a desperate need for accountability from all who serve.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        My point BG, he cannot give an answer that he himself has thought of.
        He is like a puppet the only thing missing are the strings.
        Yes, I have seen his responses and yes the ones I have read have all been taken from context from others that have responded.

      • BGills replied:

        The character, Tommy Flanagan, created by John Lovitz, and debuted on the Johnny Carson show, represents completely the moral, and ethical standards by which the current Democrat party operates it’s day to day business. Unabashed, unrepentant, even proud, and completely devoid even the slightest hint of accountability on the highest order. Their vacillation between half-truths, and complete lies, interrupted only by declarations of intellectual superiority, are eagerly consumed by the likes of Fred, and the naive, willing idiots of the left. This is what the New Democrats have to offer those blissfully unaware of their treachery. Incompetence on a magnitude, only rivaled by their lack of accountability, and it will eventually be the undoing of a nation if left unchecked.
        The enablers of such behavior, are just as guilty as the perpetrators, but they will undoubtedly deny their complicity when taken to task.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        BG, I spent 46 years as a Democrat and yes I was of the old Democrats.
        Back in the days when they had some kind of morals.
        My family have been Republicans since the mid 1800′s over 125 years to be exact and what hurt me the most was when my Opa would not talk to me for well over 6 years because of it. When Reagan came along and Opa found out I voted for Reagan that was when he started talking.
        I left the DNC in 2000 because I got tired of the lies but the lie that hurt the most was from a President I voted for twice…and we all remember “I DID NOT HAVE SEX WITH THAT WOMAN.”
        I know it is a silly thing to think but I am a man that was raised with morals from an old German family. YOU…DO…NOT…TELL…LIES.
        I am sorry but I cannot see Fred having the morals he is trying to make people think he has. IMO the man is a troll in the first degree and I cannot trust him….period.

      • BGills replied:

        Constitution B, I’m unfortunately very familiar with the divide political convictions can cause, not only among friends, but within families, and never has it been felt stronger, then in recent years. I simply can’t wrap my head around the fact, that otherwise intelligent people, would willfully suspending all critical thinking skills, abandon all they have ever learned about the intricate workings of economics, and human nature, only to blindly accept the word of those who would make the argument, that a nation can simply spend its way out of debt. That a 2,000 page Law, needs to be passed, before you could find out what’s in it? That government is somehow exempt from the rules of fiscal responsibility that governs the rest of us? That bigger government can, against all reasoning, achieve anything other than greater debt.
        They can no longer recognize the difference between debt, and deficit. They attempt to justify the obvious lies, of people they barely know, by lying to themselves. They rush to blame the job creators of this nation, instead of the job killing, corrupt, parasitic government officials, who promise to purchase a brighter future, by robbing the children of this nation.
        I watched a close friend of mine suffer through years of unemployment, as did nearly half his Local fellow union members. While union leadership continued to demand dues from the unemployed, they were somehow able to find plenty of jobs for new, mostly Hispanic members, but curiously there were no jobs to be had for any long time members. These guys didn’t seem to see anything wrong with this? Yet they continued to defend their union leaders, who blamed economic downturn for their plight, but failed to question why new membership got the work, or even why they were accepted, with so many already out of work.
        Can so many really be so blind?
        Kicking the can down the road may offer temporary relief for some, but only enables the problem to grow unimaginably in size, or scope.
        They truly live in an alternate reality, one disconnected from the here, and now. An unsustainable safety-net offers no solutions, it merely creates a whole new problem for future generations, they will toil their entire lives to pay the debt of their predecessors.
        We will have failed to provide a better life for our children, if we continue to allowing a culture absent any sense of accountability, to flourish on our watch.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        BG, the way I look it is is people like Obama and Fred feel that the taxpayers MUST give to them.
        Just the other day I was reading where Obama wants to cut the military to post WW1 Back the a time when there were few people.
        The population of the US in 1918 was 103,206,000 compare that to the population of the United States today of 308,745,538 I am sorry but being a former Liberals I have to take my shoes off the count. That means there has been an increase of 205,539,538.
        Now anyone even with a half ounce of brains knows that there is not going to be enough to protect this country from enemies even foreign and domestic.
        I cannot see the sense in cutting the military. in 1918 the military population was something like 4 million today those 4 million are just a hand full when it comes to protecting this country.
        I currently have 4 grandsons in the military and the first of April will be the 6th anniversary of the death of my grand daughter.
        ALL my kids gave their all. I gave my all, and my father gave his all he was killed on his 22 birthday 6/6/1944. I wonder just how much Obama and Fred gave for their country?
        I am sorry BG but I cannot see the sense in cutting something as important as the military ESPECIALLY NOW WITH ALL THE UNREST IN THE WORLD.
        I may not be the educated man that you are BG as my degree is only in computer engineering and there you don’t need to use 20 dollar words but when someone like Fred questions my education, and in so many words he has as he has with yours, that tells me that they are getting desperate in keeping what they have and are willing to change the rules to suit their demented agenda.

      • Fred replied:

        Stop your lies! The cuts, if they occur r due to the sequester forced on the President by the Republicans so the debt limit would be raised. U and BJ need to become critical thinkers.. Define that, I know u have your own definition.

      • BGills replied:

        Fred, you have conveniently neglected to mention, that the idea of sequester, was the brain-child of Obama himself, in the first place… but once again you relentlessly attempt to lay blame on anyone, or anything other than the responsible party. You simply regurgitate the lies of the left, over, and over, until you begin to believe them yourself. The true definition of delusional, being a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on simply false, or incomplete information. You intentionally spread that false, or incomplete information, in an attempt to deceive, justify, and blame anyone who dares disagree with your obvious superior intellect.
        Your nothing but a cheap copy of the liars you attempt to defend.

      • Fred replied:

        BJ, I now know u can’t understand facts or have any critical thinking. I’m sure u don’t believe in evolution, climate change, or for that matter the world is round and not flat. It’s ok.

      • BGills replied:

        Both Fred, and James, are clearly proud, Liberal, New Demorats, perpetually revising the truth to fit their needs. It doesn’t make anything they say fact. It certainly doesn’t lend one ounce of credibility to their ridiculous ramblings, but it does clarify the fact that they are proud lemmings of the New Demorat Party.

        Now lets see if Jimmy Boy and Fred Flintstone can come up with something to refute this from their Messiah Obama.

      • BGills replied:

        In a recent speech given by President Obama, he declared that “Climate Change” is scientific fact. Given his scientific background, I believe I will defer to logic, and the opinion of those who actually have a scientific background, but don’t have a ton of money invested in Al Gores carbon credit scheme…

        Greenpeace Co-Founder: ‘No Scientific Proof’ of Manmade Global Warming
        In eye-opening testimony before a Senate subcommittee, the co-founder of the environmental activist group Greenpeace refuted assertions that carbon dioxide emissions from human activity are responsible for global warming.

        He also said a warmer temperature would be “far better” than a cooler one.

        Patrick Moore, Ph.D., testified before the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight on Feb. 25.

        “There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” said Moore, who left Greenpeace in 1986 due to what he called its “sharp turn to the political left.”

        “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states: ‘It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming’ since the mid-20th century.

        “‘Extremely likely’ is not a scientific term but rather a judgment, as in a court of law.”

        Moore, chairman emeritus of Greenspirit Strategies in Vancouver, Canada, also told the subcommittee: “Perhaps the simplest way to expose the fallacy of ‘extreme certainty’ is to look at the historical record. When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today.

        “The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming.

        “The increase in temperature between 1910 and 1940 was virtually identical to the increase between 1970 and 2000. Yet the IPCC does not attribute the increase from 1910-1940 to ‘human influence.’ They are clear in their belief that human emissions impact only the increase since the mid-20th century. Why does the IPCC believe that a virtually identical increase in temperature after 1950 is caused mainly by ‘human influence,’ when it has no explanation for the nearly identical increase from 1910-1940?”

        Moore went on to say: “Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species. There is ample reason to believe that a sharp cooling of the climate would bring disastrous results for human civilization.

        “It is ‘extremely likely’ that a warmer temperature than today’s would be far better than a cooler one.”

        Well, as for the warming of the planet that has been an on going thing for millions of years.
        Today one of my grand daughters living in Galveston Texas told me today on the phone that this is the first time in 38 years that she has lived there that it got so cold that the water in her pool froze over. She said it has gotten chilly there before to the point that her furnace came on instead of the AC
        I wonder how Obama or the Green people are going to respond to this phenomena of cold weather in areas of this country that have never seen cold before.
        I seen a picture or the weather map that showed the entire United States in degrees of zero to 20 degrees in California and even in Nevada.
        YOU figure it out.

        You know something Jimmy Boy, it is you that are the fool. Thoreau once said “Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.”

        My comment is directed to all of us who understand what Dan has compiled here, and understand it documents the travesties of the Ohbongo Administration. Here is my proposal:

        Let us all, from this point on, ignore the Looney Liberals who make inane comments on this thread. By responding to them, we only add fuel to their insanity, and give them a forum upon which to spew their flawed political, economic and culture liberal ideas.

        The most satisfying and effective insult anyone can make to those with whom you cannot have an intelligent and meaningful discussion is to simply ignore them.

        I agree, but it was fun while it lasted.
        Thank you for reminding me what we are here for. I really got caught up in the moment.
        What I have been trying to focus on is the fact that Obozo wants to reduce the military they way he wants to.
        That is wrong and those that agree with him, Obama, IMO needs to be living in constant fear.
        I was born into a free land and my ancestors before me. And again IMO the removal of guns from the hands of the people IS IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
        For some odd reason I see Obama standing in the Rose Garden watching Rome fall and that I fear will be soon. We have two more years to put up with Obama and if the Liberals have their way we will have to put up either Hitlery Clinton or Obama’s current Jester, Biden.
        And considering the two I would much rather put up with a rabid dog.
        Either way if the Lib’s win this year and in 2016 this country is certainly doomed for extinction.

I simply refer to them as self-impressed Liberals, or the willing idiots of the Democrat party. The intellectually dishonest, attempting to rule with an ever-changing definition of political correctness, based wholly on simple deception, and outright lies. They fear only the unity of oposition, and the bulk of their message is intended to divide, dilute, and demonize, every voice of criticism they encounter.
        Exercise your 1st amendment rights as long, and as loud you can, because ultimately they intend to restrict your ability to do so.
        The speech, and thought police, are slowly gaining power, through the punitive powers of the IRS, and the useful idiots, who identify as Domocrats, are their first line of defense.
        Anyone willing to trade even one of their freedoms, for a false sense of security, deserves neither…
        The inescapable truth is, that they trade not only their own freedoms, but ours as well.

      • Constitution Believer replied:

        You know something BGills, it is so strange that you should mention Obamacare and the illegals, which you should never have the two words in the same sentence, but we just had a new family move into the neighborhood. They bought a home that has been empty for well over 4 years as the kids that had it before them lost it when he lost his job and could not afford it after living in it for 6 years.
        This family BOASTS the reason they left Mexico is that they can get FREE HOUSING, and FREE MEDICAL, and free this and free that and all they have to do is be in this country for less then a year and vote for, and they rattled off the names of every Democrat running for the House and Senate in both Washington and here in Ohio.
        As for the housing well all that is public record so i went down to the county recorders office looked up the address and sure enough the house was bought 10/1/2013 for $47,500 with NO LEIN ON THE HOUSE…meaning the house is paid in full.
        Now where can someone that is from Mexico only be in this country since February of 2013 get hold of $50K? The 3K extra is for closing costs and other fees. And the Name on the deed is Alvaro Castrejon.
        Now I ask you what is one to do when someone brags about getting things free and their kid talk about rude, loud, and obnoxious this kid gives a whole new meaning to the word GANGSTA.
        So far since October the police have been to that house well over a hundred times. Thats like once ever other day. I shudder what is going to happen this summer.
        Wait till he finds out my Godson is the head honcho in this county, my Godson is the county Sheriff.
        Bottom line is Obamacare and Illegals go hand in hand here in this country. I truly believe that Obama and the president of Mexico have made a pact with each other over Mexico and their people coming in…ILLEGALLY…………………and they wonder why we call them wet backs.

        Constitution Believer, Your post makes a lot of sense. I think that there are more layers of fraud on Obama’s watch than anyone even can imagine. Basically it’s a party for anyone literally in the word, who wants to come to the U.S. and mooch off of the Taxed Enough Already citizens.

        Except for the Democrats….(the ones who do pay some taxes). we know that THEY specifically are not taxed enough, and need to be taxed more. I think a Deportation tax, maybe a baseball bat against the head tax, a lock and load tax, a get-the-hell-out-of-my-country-you-traitor-bastard-tax, a tax on ropes and trees for hangman’s nooses, a tax on pitchforks, a tax on tar and feathers, etc.

        50k house. WOW. Every citizen in America outta do what you did and let’s see if they are actually getting PAID ILLEGAL TAX MONEY or most probably ILLEGAL DRUG MONEY that is prearranged by Odumbo. We just need to expose even more scandals and continue to beat the drum as much as possible.

As you know carriers our out to see for months at a time and I am sure they don’t drink sea water as it is very salty.
        So why cant they take sea water from the Pacific and make usable drinkable and watering water out of it? Why? could be that they are to busy being pains in the taxpayers arse’s and seent that 51% of the population of California are hispanic well you do the math.
        It is my belief that there is an agreement with the hispanics that you support the Democrats in what ever we do and we will keep you going with tax dollars and free things. I wonder how close I am.

        The education of our youth has been destroyed by Liberals who claim more money solves everything. After all the money shoveled into education over the years, the bulk has gone to teachers salaries, and pension funds, to keep the charade going. Lord knows all that money hasn’t produced any positive results in overall student grades. Teachers that can’t teach, shouldn’t be rewarded. Teachers that can, should reap the rewards of their efforts. The majority of low achievers from our broken educational system tend to gravitate towards the Liberal leaning ideals of society, simply because they espouse little, if any accountability, for anything. While the over achievers, that the current system tries to hold back, tend to be more accountability inspired, and Conservative.
        Your underachiever status is more then apparent, and I blame our broken educational system for your ignorance.

        When I first got involved with Dan I believe the count was only in about 500 now the count of Obama’s lies are in the 600′s.
        I commented on only one without reading all of them but did as I was told and downloaded and read each and everyone of them.

        Eventually, you will come to understand the error of your ways… Unfortunately, even then, you will continue to defend the ideology that brought about nothing but pain, dependence, poverty, and overwhelming desperation.
        Your attempts at self-stim have been a great source of amusement for those who see you for what you really are… a dancing monkey!
        The only possible justification for your words will be, a bloated ego that simply refuses to acknowledge truth, and the understanding that misery really does love company.

    • VagaBond replied:

      I read many references to Obama’s administration making changes to Obamacare illegally because He did not go through congress. The wording in the PPACA however seems to give him authority to man certain panels with “Whomsoever the president shall appoint”.

      Don’t have the original PPACA in front of me at the moment, but I am pretty sure that this was written to it give him authority to appoint who he pleases to actually write the regulations that will ultimately become obamacare. That was the most troubling wording in the PPACA to me. That the president SHALL appoint a panel ( of non elected officials therefore not answerable to congress or us) to decide what would be covered and what not. Seems to me they are following the PPACA as written. That is what Pelosi really meant in her statement “we have to pass it to find out what is in it”. She knew that it still was to be written without congressional influence and that this was just the launching platform from which they could do so. The wording is in the original bill though, giving him authority to APPOINT people to write the regulations.

      Devil really is in the details on this one.

      The PPACA was written therefore (in their eyes at least) to totally bypass the authority of the constitution. They basically wrote themselves a black check with our health care.

        What would you recomend he do faced with Floridas problem.there is a problem (well documented) about slavery in that state and many others and some of these employers are legit in many aspects, so when a nobel prize winner prevents kids under 18 from working on farms its so simple my 6 y.o old understood this fairly easily but you grown adults do not.How amazingly silly you are, I do wish you good luck in your mental problem of not being able to think very thoroughly and maybe if you try reading more your comprehension abilities will increase as this stuff is highly basic, and not hard to see through

        Much like the fool who rambles on aimlessly for attention…
        Obviously your no longer holding your breath, to bad, most likely because the hot air had to escape from somewhere.
        It’s more than apparent you know nothing about the business of family farming, much like those who dream up oppressive regulations that will eventually lead to us all trying to produce our own food. You are full of ideas on how to fix other peoples ‘problems’, but you haven’t the first clue on how to deal with your own issues.
        Children of farm families have been contributing to the efforts of the family business since… forever. You liken it to slavery, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. Farming is a hard life, much harder than you could ever understand. Farm families require everyone to pull their weight, nothing more. A concept I suspect which is totally foreign to you.
        Your assertion that corruption ceases to be so, when it’s for a ‘noble’ cause, is simply further evidence of the moral decay that you, and your ilk promote in place of ethics. It is this definition of ‘fairness’ that will only help to further divide the people of this once great nation.
        Your eager willingness, to blindly follow incompetent know-it-all’s down the path to economic destruction might be what you deserve, but real Americans deserve better.
        You exemplify whats truly wrong with this nation, people who believe themselves to be experts about everything, when in fact they actually know very little about anything. You proudly believe yourself to be making one point, when in reality you’re actually making another, your ignorance is endless, and boundless.

        “Obama helping the poor get homes for themselves”? We have lost a total of 7 million home owners since peak around 2005 and “tanked” (collapsed) under Obama.
        Illegal aliens are NOT slaves, illegals are here to work and take home all they can send to make 10 to 13 times as much as they make back home. Tell Americans anywhere in the world where Americans can go and work for 10 to 13 times as much as in the U.S.?

Case in point: teabaggers are crossing borders to escape from Obamacare – unfortunately their dumbasses don’t realize that Canada had universal healthcare for decades as well as many other well to do first world countries.

Chores are something every child needs to develop self-esteem and a good work ethic. Have you ever even worked on a farm? Do you realize that it benefits the child to help out?

        As for the White House garden…it was 1500 sq ft. barely the size of a small home…Michelle was just lazy and the garden harvest is used by local shelters, why couldn’t the woman go out to the garden for one hour two or three times a week and pull some weeds and gather some vegetables…she had nothing else to do, the government was shutdown. I am sure during that time she had her nails done. Furthermore, the homeless people probably would have volunteered to help. Even someone like Chris Cox would have helped if they let him. This was just a selfish, childish act on her part for sympathy. This to me is reprehensible knowing that there are children in America going hungry and she is supposed to be the “healthy lifestyle” promoter for our children.

      So nothing written here in this list is offensive to you? You are an American, right? Have you read the Constitution lately? Maybe you should take another peek at it because your comment tells me that you have no clue what the Constitution says. If you knew what the President was supposed to be doing, and not supposed to be doing, before you slammed someone for telling the truth, it is possible that even you might see enough contradictions in the President’s behavior to wonder what in the world is going on with him. Racism only applies when the act in question was only taken because of race. You can see by the list that the author has the same issues with Bush who is white. The author is not the racist…you are. You are either so blinded by American Idol and Facebook that you have missed what’s been going on over the last several years in politics, or you carry the guilt of every racist this country has ever produced and apply it every American with an opinion that is not yours. You can’t carry a conversation about politics so you shut it down with race and religion. Race and religion. You sound like a right wing nut job wanna be. I am white. I am not racist. I approve of this Obama list. It’s why I’m here. You can call me a troll, because never again will I let slide a comment like yours. You and people like you are the only ones on the planet that buy that load of stuff you’re selling by calling “racist” because you can’t argue the actual issues. You can’t argue because you are blind and/or wrong. And everyone knows it but you. So I’m doing you a favor and telling you that black, white, pink, purple, green, blue, we have a bad, bad President. Congress and the Supreme Court are no better, and together they are destroying our country while you whine about racism. But we already know that that’s what you want. Just know that we don’t want what you’re selling, and we know what you mean when you say “racist”. Have a nice day. Read a book or something.

Than u have the nerve to question their Faith , you should be ashamed to back up as a Christian to stand behind Obama n his administration when he is obvious anti Christianity when he goes to talk in Religious Colleges n makes them cover up any religious relics or signs, when in video is shown mocking the bible, whenh is always quoting the Quran n saying we are not a Christian Nation, When he has a microchip RFID implant mandate written in Obama Care Bill as well as Religious Violations forcing institutions to go against their Faiths, when on record he has sent millions to Africa to keep abortion clinics open,as well as the continued promotion of it here in our country, when he n his Banker Buddies are all Eugenisis who believe in forcefully depopulating the earth because of their bogus global warming, forced inoculations, and you think as Christians we must follow such leaders? Are u crazy? Or is your loyalty lies to your party instead of Jesus Christ like I’ve notice many democrats act like,when before primaries I hear them booing a Pastor for Praying, Along with this we have the diobolic gay agenda n the destruction of marriage which is a religious institution. You really think Jesus Christ would want u to follow such evil beliefs? Or are u like those who think God put him in office, God grants us free will to choose n he wasn’t put in office by God anymore than Hitler was, so that argument is of no use. Did not John the Baptist yell out at King Herod n his minions about their fallacies and crooked ways every time they crossed by the river?? So much that it caused him his head just as it will cost Snowden his life! Did not Jesus flip the money changers tables over because of their lusts for money n robbing the people in the Holy place? Ain’t Wall street n Obama’s buddies a representation of that today? You need to read your Bible n realize that in the last day many will go astray for following false god’s ,idols,prophets,n leaders who will have great charisma and speak great words. And by the way I am a young Latino who lives n was raised in the inner city so you can’t play this racist calling game on me. I refuse to follow lawlessness and its obvious that’s what this whole administration represents. Educate yourself God bless

I have written in Ron Paul’s name on my ballot several times over the past few decades. Too many lazy, ill informed people voting in the matrix over and over for an actual Constitutionalist to get into power. And if one were to be elected, I would imagine that assassination would be a very real threat from the puppet masters.

        Amen, Mr. Valez. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Obama raised in a Muslim household by a Muslim father? Then he and his family attended a racist church for over twenty years, whose minister has called us caucasians “white devils”. Only when the church was exposed for the aggresive racists they are did Obama & family begin attending a different church. I think he endorses hate against whites. Personally I and a lot of other people believe that Obama is actually a Muslim posing as a Christian. When was he baptized into the Christian faith? Was he saved? Those are questions I wonder about. Obama never acknowledges the fact that he is half white. To me that is a clear indicator that either he is ashamed of it, or he hates whites, is a flaming racist, am guessing all of the above. It has also crossed my mind that he is the anti-christ. Time will tell. Meanwhile, keep praying, because we already know Who is going to ultimately win this battle, and it sure ain’t Obama and his mob, or the big bankers.

      • Michele ;-) replied:

        This comment is for GRITS who obviously lacks any real knowledge of the President that he/she is speaking not only negatively about but embarrassingly incorrect as well. Obama was NOT raised Muslim by his father he was raised in Hawaii by his white grandparents whome he loves very much. His white grandmother passed away shortly before the first election he won. He is very close to his maternal (white) family and has even dated white women. You really have embarrassed yourself here with that basic lack of knowledge of the President. He is not racist against white people by any means. It might do you some good to educate yourself to refrain from looking like a complete moron.

      • Michele ;-) replied:

        Another thing Grits… a Muslim would nevr pose as a Christian and the wife and daighter would be dressed in the Islamic fashion. Please pick up a book or Google for all that matters. You are really in need of an education!

      • BGills replied:

        Michele, you have neglected to note that Barack Obama once went by the name Barry Soetoro. Soetoro was the sir-name of his second father, and they lived in Indonesia. There he went to a religiously segregated school, and it is at this school it is alleged he was instructed in the religion of Islam.
        Obamas “growing up in Hawaii” came after his stay in Indonesia.
        Your point about all Muslim women adhering to a religious dress-code, which is highly contested even among some Muslims, means very little in the current context.
        Some male radical Muslims, (Terrorists) seeking to avoid capture have resorted to dressing as Muslim women to hide their identity. Something considered very cowardly across the entire spectrum of Muslims.
        There is some precedent in Islamic religious text that suggest deception and lies are acceptable only if they are used to advance the spread of Islam.
        I don’t know if you’ve ever been to the middle-east, I’m guessing not, but in many locations you will find deception is simply part of the local culture. Bragging is very big amongst some, and when you catch them in a ridiculous lie, they often just smile, and try to change the subject. You know, “move on…”

      • Michele ;-) replied:

        BGills nowhere in the Qu’ran does it suggest anything remotely ok with lying. Please fact check. As stated earlier, it really lessons the view of one having intelligence when people are still saying Obama is Muslim. If je was his wife and daughters dress would reflect that. What is he was Muslim? Wasn’t this country established for religious freedom as well as a few other reasons? People meed to stop fabricating so many reasons to hate the man and just admit they are racist. The truth is so liberating! Also he was NOT raised Muslim and if he was, so what!?!?

      • BGills replied:

        Michele,
        Muhammad himself had signed a 10-year truce with the Arabian pagan Quraysh tribe in the city of Mecca (the Treaty of Hudaybiyah, 628 AD). In the beginning of the second year of that ten-year truce agreement, he found a pretext to justify breaking the truce. He pounced on the Quraysh in a surprise attack, conquered Mecca and defeated the Quraysh, who were not prepared for more hostilities since they were still honoring the 10-year accord, and assumed that Muhammad was too. Since then, this agreement between Muhammad, and the Quraysh, has been used repeatedly as an example for some Muslims, on how to trick the enemy in wartime, or simply to justify deception as a means of spreading Islam.
        Granted, Muslim extremists are most likely to use these “teachings” as justification for a say or do anything approach for speading the influence of Islam, and there are many Muslims who would disagree with their interpretation. Yet they persist…
        As for “What if he was a Muslim…” That is not what he represented himself to be, and would indicate an eager willingness to deceive in an effort to advance his agenda, which would fall right in line with the radical interpretation of the aforementioned teachings.
        You claim reveling facts to be “racist” when in reality not seeking the truth is the ultimate form of ignorance through apathy. You infer yourself to be superior to those who disagree with you by labeling them racist, simply because they disagree with you. Pick up a book sometime, and quit speed-reading, it has seriously diminished your ability to comprehend what you have read.
        The broken promises of this President, the failed foreign policy, the unjustified spying, the targeting of citizens, the apparent incompetence, the doubling of our national debt, the rewarding of failure, and punishing of siccess…
        All who question, and seek answers are truly wise, and are not the problem here, it’s the deception, and cover-ups that seek the sanctuary of darkness, because they abhor the light of truth.

        Anyone not willing to tell you the truth, has got something to hide!” ~ Barack Obama

Some of the things on this list made me realize how this man must have nothing to do all day but dream up ludicrous accusations and falacies against the President in hopes that there are people out there who will read this and not have enough sense to know this list is bolonga and that they won’t have the brain power to fact check. One thing I found particularly funny is when he say how the President said if he had a son he would loom like Trayvon Martin. The President said,”LOOK LIKE” not behave like but yet he list several alleged negative things about Trayvon and then mentions what the President said as if he is saying his son would behave in that manner. I think he licked the botton of the barrel on that one. Quite a few other things he said were obvious things the President could NOT have done. I’ve concluded that this man is a racist wack job!

        Michele, sorry to butt in… and I don’t mean to offend or start an argument. But would it be safe to say that you obtain all of your information about whats going on in politics from one or more sources of the main stream media? It would appear as though that were the case for it seems that you are backing and justifying the actions of those in office. Particularly that of the President. Would it surprise you to learn that the same group of very wealthy people own CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN and the list goes on. This group also owns the companies that were the major supporters and contributors to Bush’s campaigns, Obamas campaigns as well as Romneys campaigns. Oh and these individuals also own and run the Federal Reserve. Yes you may have guessed it by now, I speak of the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Morgans, etc. They have a neat little group of friends and they pretty much own everything. And if we didn’t have a constitution, they would already own us as well. These people are bent on getting America under control and turning us into their slaves so to speak and they are masters at doing this. They’ve figured out how to get people to give up their God given rights in the name of Terrorism. And through FEAR, people are going along with giving up their guns and sighing over there freedoms. Its really quite brilliant how they’ve managed to be so successful in their quest. Nevertheless, please dont just call me names and assume I’m some conspiracy theorist because all of what I’ve stated is true. And I beg you to get on line and seek out other sources of information to gather your facts and toss out your TV because it is nothing but lies. I know this is long but if you have the time, this would be a good video to watch to start to become informed.

    Obama’s not even the president; because a dual citizen isn’t a natural born citizen he was never eligible to run for president-which makes him guilty of election fraud because he ran for president when he knew he wasn’t eligible. He’s also guilty of wire fraud for using his campaign to illegally raise money. He also raised money from foreign sources, which is also illegal. He also lied on his Illinois Bar Application when he said he never used another name; he used the name “Barry Soetoro” at Occidental College. He’s also been found to be using a Social Security number that was originally issued to someone else

    A lot of people want Obama impeached, but since he’s not the president, he can’t be impeached.

We can no longer afford the apathy which has characterized us for so long; it is high time we realize that we are in a very serious mess, and without God’s blessing, there is no hope! There are still enough God-fearing patriots in America to make a difference because the best hope we have as a Constitutional Republic based upon Judeo-Christian principles is to make things right with our Lord. We need to begin praying earnestly for His forgiveness and mercy upon this land, since without His direct intervention, this republic would never have been won! Without petitioning the Lord, we won’t have the leadership we need to restore our great Republic to it’s true roots; I am believing for a great revival throughout America that will cast such a brightness across this land that the wickedness which has had such control for so long will be routed out and dispersed into oblivion!

  18. Texas Mike replied:

    Great list. Unfortunately, there are a lot of dubious claims mixed in with the real stuff, that allow liberals to discount the whole thing. There are plenty of things to nail Obama on without including dubious claims. For it to be usable outside groups that already agree with you, the following need to be addressed:

    12 – for the last few decades, the outgoing President has made the budget for the first year of the incoming President’s term – so the proper accounting dates for the Bush Debt are from the end of FY 2001 to the end of FY 2009, with Obama picking up at the end of 2009. By that accounting, the Bush Debt is $6.1 trillion. That said, only 3 of 9 major 2009 appropriations bills had been passed when Bush left office. The remaining bills and additional spending Obama pushed for that year, that came to $379 billion over Bush’s 2009 budget. An additionl $150 billion of the 2009 deficit was in TARP loans that were later repaid under Obama (and then spent). As such, Obama will not officially exceed the entire Bush debt until the debt exceeds $18 trillion (some time next year) – though $17.5 trillion would be more accurate due to the way 2009 actually worked.

    http://www.treasurydirect.gov/govt/reports/pd/histdebt/histdebt_histo5.htm

    121 – IIRC we have actually gotten back more than was spent on the bailout due to interest paid on the monies loaned… it is just that not everyone we loaned money to has repaid it. So, it is technically correct to say we got back every dime – and also technically correct to say that some who were loaned money have not repaid it.

    125 – Fast and Furious was the last in a series of gunwalking programs, many of which took place under Bush. One of the major differences between Fast and Furious and earlier programs was in how they were operated. In earlier programs, almost all the guns were recovered before they could be used in crimes – in Fast and Furious, almost none were.

    144 – While Obama’s claim here is false, your text and the article you linked conflates Deficit and Debt.

    156 – Lots of dubious claims here from all sides. Obama claims physicians are paid $30k-$50k for a leg amputation. The link refuting it says that Medicare only pays $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation. However, Medicare pays only a small fraction of the billed amount. See the following links: http://www.amputee-coalition.org/fact_sheets/diabetes_leamp.html – Other studies have suggested that diabetes-related amputations cost approximately three billion dollars per year ($38,077 per amputation procedure). – [2] Arran Shearer, et al, “Predicted Costs and Outcomes from Reduced Vibration Detection in People with Diabetes in the U.S.,” Diabetes Care 26 (2003): 2305-10; and Adam Gordois, et al, “The Health Care Costs of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy in the U.S.,” Diabetes Care 26 (2003): 1790-95. – http://www.news-medical.net/news/20090819/Cost-of-physician-reimbursement-for-diabetic-leg-amputations-misconstrued.aspx

    163 – The 20,000 pages added after the law was passed wered added by the Department of Health and Human Services for implementation. Can’t really blame the Obama Administration for this particularly – Congress has unconstitutionally delegated its legislative powers to a cornucopia of Federal agencies, from the EPA and SEC to the FCC and NLRB.

    169 – Technically Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was jailed for a probation violation. He was definitely hunted down and prosecuted for the video – but that isn’t what he was charged with or jailed for. Granted they would probably have jailed him on other charges if that hadn’t been handy.

    190 – It was the Mayor of Chigago that betrayed the people with regard to Obamacare, not Obama (other than indirectly). Can’t really blame this one on him.

    209 – While the President may be behind some of this, most of it is due to liberal propaganda. That serves the President’s purposes, but he isn’t the one behind it.

    223 – The President was talking about the Detroit automakers here, not Detroit the city. It is fun to point out his phrasing, but not fair to characterize it as a lie because Detroit (the city) went bankrupt.

    228 – While technically true, this is because many small business file taxes as S-Corporations under the personal income taxes of the owner. It is more that there is a difference between personal and corporate income tax rates than any specific targeting of small business.

    229 – Links do not support assertion

    245 – The Osprey the dog went on was traveling there anyway – the dog was just sent on a different aircraft than the President.

    In addition:

    212 – Your text here actually understates the problem by a good deal by only listing the worst one – the link you posted covers a few more.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      Wow! Thank you for taking the time to do all of that.

      I have been posting versions of this list for a few years, and I have always been happy when people point out mistakes and things that could be improved for future versions. You have offered more suggestions than any other person so far – by a substantial margin.

      You are absolutely correct that the existence of some errors gives Obama supporters an excuse to discount the whole thing. While I don’t plan to edit this version of the list to incorporate any of your suggestions, I will take everything that you said into account when I publish my next version of this list. You make some good arguments, although I can still see a good case to preserve much of what I said for future versions. Right now I’m not sure what I would or would not change for the next version, but I will give what you said some thought.

      Perhaps it would be good if I added some info on how Fast and Furious was different than the Bush program. From what I can recall having read before, the Bush program used electronic tracking of each and every gun, it was done with the knowledge, permission, and cooperation of the Mexican government, and the guns were prevented from crossing the Mexican border. With Obama, there was no tracking of the guns, the Mexican government was not told about it and did not offer permission or cooperation, and the guns were allowed to cross the Mexican border. U.S. federal agent Brian Terry was murdered with a Fast and Furious gun. Multiple Mexican citizens were murdered with Fast and Furious guns. I think that out of all the ones that you addressed, this is the most important one for me to update in my next version.

      I don’t consider the interest on TARP to count toward the “every dime” claim, but I do agree that your point has merit.

      Your claim about the budget during Obama’s incoming term is very strong, and I appreciate you posting that link.

      Thank you for everything that you said. I do indeed want to make this as accurate as possible so Obama supporters don’t have an excuse to dismiss the entire thing. Thank you for your suggestions.

      • Texas Mike replied:

        Happy to help. A couple of others you might add are:

        The $4.2 billion paid out in fraudulent tax refunds to illegal aliens via Child Tax Credit in 2010 (and the fact that whistleblowers had to come forward regarding it because IRS managers told them to ignore obvious fraud).

        The co-chair for the Obama 2012 campaign posted an illegally-obtained internal IRS tax document on the internet during the run-up to the 2012 elections, and the government chose to neither investigate or prosecute anyone for it.

      • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

        Thanks again. I think the fact that the IRS sent 23,000 refunds all to the same address is actually more notable than the billions of dollars that were wasted overall. But I will considering adding the billions of dollars as a separate entry. And thanks for mentioning the IRS document, which, depending on who the victim was, could either be added to #170 or get its own entry, if I do in fact decide to add it.

      You are so so wrong about the 2009 budget. It DOES NOT belong to Bush. If definitely belongs to Obama. Bush submitted a budget in June of 2008 which would have resulted in a $407 billion deficit. Obama took office in January of 2009 and REVISED the budget which was approved in March of 2009. This REVISED budget, instead of the $407 billion deficit submitted by Bush, resulted in a $1.4 trillion deficit as revised by Obama. The 2009 budget belongs to Obama.

    Absolutely wrong. There is unequivocal evidence that the Lockerbie False Flag was staged by CIA-MOSSAD. The targeted people onboard was an official US team of Investigators of CIA-MOSSAD’s corruption and connections to DRUG TRAFFICKING operated-supervised by operatives of said Intel agencies, working out of Lebanon… That team was on its way back to the USA with a very damaging report, confirming the extent of the suspected ILLEGAL activities and who were involved in them, reason for which the team was silenced… Check the facts.

As a child, I bet you were terribly frightened by monsters under your bed, and you’re still checking to make sure they won’t get you in your sleep.

        The term “conspiracy theorist” was coined by the CIA following the murder of JFK to discredit those people who believed Oswald had not acted alone, and didn’t believe the feds official explanation of events. Good to see that propaganda holding strong today.

    A colossal pile of dubious information. I see very little Christianity here, either by this list making blogmeister of talking points or most of the trolling commentators. This post was foisted on me, I didn’t come
    Looking for it. All I see here is a lot of hate, blind head nodding, superstitious belief, calls for death torture and trials and almost total ignorance of the political process, but very little intelligent dialog among caring Americans. Your angry divide is exactly what bin laden was hoping for and by participating in this way, you not only let him win, but you become part of his army of hatred. Where here is any of Jesus’ compassion, understanding or love? Shame on the lot of you. It makes
    me sad you all spend so much time in this way complaining and condemning, but do very little about understanding or solving the real problems.

      Foisted? Seriously? You do know that you don’t have to click on links no matter how much someone tells you to, right?

      Compassion, love, and understanding are great characteristics, but they do not excuse criminal behavior. The real problem is that we have a Federal Government that has gone completely out of control under a President who seems inept at best, negligent at worst.

      The rest of your comments are suspect at best. I do think it’s great, however, that you managed to tie Bin Laden, Jesus, and the claim of political ignorance into one argument. Had you somehow added 9-11 I would have called it the greatest response to a blog post ever.

    Dan, what are you complaining about since you voted for Obama? A vote for Johnson, someone who didn’t have a prayer and was probably installed by the Communist to split the Republican vote, was a vote for Obama. You did it with your eyes wide open and your brain totally shut. If you don’t think this is the historical tactic of the Left you need to familiarize yourself with their game plan. You can start by reading their playbook, Rules for Radicals by Paul Alinsky. He goes indepth about installing a pseudo-third party candidate to syphon votes. You idiots just fell for it.

And you people who keep throwing out that idiocy, that if you didn’t vote for international banksters’ puppet “R”, you voted for the “D”. BULL. You’ve been bamboozled. Romney would’ve been another king george 1 & 2. Warmongering for the Military Industrial Complex, continuing the misnamed “war on drugs” (it’s really a war on Americans – as is the misnamed “war on terror”) for Big Pharma, privatizing things that should be done by government, such as running prisons, for the Big Private Prison Corporations, etc, etc, etc. In other words, pretty much “Same as it Ever Was” : different puppet, same hand. We need to throw everyone out who has been in office or been a “lobbyist” (briber), been in any cabinet post or job, been a “czar”, – anybody who in any way has contributed to the destruction of this country. They need to be thrown out of power, prosecuted and imprisoned. The whole lot of them. And there should be a test to determine if a person is intellligent enough to cast a ballot come election time !!!! And idiots should not be allowed to vote. Illegal immigrants and dead people should also not be allowed to vote.

      Dear Ana,
      Are you talking about the Republicans who gave us Romney,
      of Romney-care, as an alternative to Obama ? And before that
      McCain, those Republicans ?
      Yes, Alinsky sure is read, and followed, by Obama whose teacher
      was communist Fank Marshall Davis, along with O’s mom and
      grandparents.
      Gary Johnson, former Governor of N.M. left his state with a
      surplus and used his veto pen around 800 times. No wonder the
      Republicans would not have him in the debates; they weren’t

      were the ‘useful idiots’.

    about 100 of these are sources by not credible sources. Not that obama is a saint or didnt do the things you claim, but you should be more discerning about what you choose as a “source”. Blatant anti-obama fox editorials aren’t really sources as much as they are biased partisan trash.

      There is enough listed here from NY Times that should disgust each citizen. The fact that he still has defenders is a more blatant misappropriation of trust than I have ever seen.

      • BGills replied:

        Actually there aren’t any reliable, unbiased, news sources left! Every alleged “News” source world-wide plays some sort of angle. They only put forth either left, or right, leaning opinion based “stories,” or truth omissions. Fox News is certainly no less reliable a source, than MSNBC, NBC, CNN, HLN, or most of the other mainstream media.
        So your premise here is, that without reliable news sources, these allegations just aren’t credible? Well then, problem solved… Nobody has ever done anything wrong… I believe Obama himself has recently, and repeatedly made that very point, by declaring all ongoing investigations into any wrong-doing by him, or his administration, merely “Phony scandals.” I’m sure if we just let this administration implement all their brilliant solutions, all will be fine. Nothing to see here folks, everybody can just go back to what they were doing, and leave running the nation in the very capable hands of our beloved leader, and his trustworthy lap-dogs!

      • HMichaelH replied:

        Could you please provide a couple of examples of when and about what FoxNews provided unreliable or biased information when reporting the News? It doesn’t count when a news organization reports the truth about a story which reveals how corrupt, immoral♠ and dishonest a politician is. Reporting the truth is, of course, viewed by those who don’t like the truth as being “biased and unreliable.” When NYC-Mayor-Wannabie-Wienie shows his wiener to a woman-not-his-wife on his computer, he and his wife are going to consider that as “biased reporting….but it’s really just the truth!

      • BGills replied:

        Dan, my comment was not intended to disparage Fox News’s coverage of political news. In fact, it’s my personal belief they are miles above most other news outlets when it comes to telling it like it is. However, you must admit, in this tabloid news environment that we find ourselves in, it can become extremely difficult to decide where the truth lies.
        Most who consider Fox News as an unreliable news source, don’t even watch it. As much as it pains me, I do watch as many news sources as I can stomach.
        Fox is just a slice of the media in general, and as a whole the media is unreliable.
        Case in point, the Zimmerman/Martin trial…
        Fox News was the only news outlet that even entertained the possibility that Zimmerman might be telling the truth, and they backed this possibility up with facts, and eyewitness statements.
        Almost every other news outlet put forth an endless bombardment of conjecture, by trying to manipulate facts, and hearsay, to fit a preconceived notion of what may have happened the night in question. Anyone not watching Fox News, was certainly given the impression by the remaining news outlets, that Zimmerman was a rabid racist, whose sole purpose for being, was to find, and destroy innocent black youths, where-ever they may exist, contrary to a mountain of evidence otherwise.
        The “mainstream” media in this instance, was not unlike a frustrated child trying to jam a square peg, into a round hole, desperately trying to manipulate the facts to fit their version of events.

    It might help you understand this blind eye mentality, if you read the testimony of Jack Kawano from the McCarthy Hearings. Kawano defected from the communist party of Hawaii, and gave testimony to the fact that the communists were planning to infiltrate the DNC national committee and the RNC later – they realized that the DNC was pretty vulnerable to stupid ideas – so they went there first. Kawano was one of the first 17 communists to attend the DNC convention in 1948, posing as a Democrat. The Congress that we have today, are communists. They’re in this “all for one, and one for all” communist mentality. You can also read Jack Kawano’s interview with the Sat. Evening Post Feb. 2, 1952.

I can go through point by point and do a running commentary on all of them though that would seem more fitting for an article all its own. As it was, this was merely an observation of one particular error that I happened to note … if indeed I am correct and I do know that Clinton did conduct no-bid business with Halliburton and when I left the states for my last position in 2004, at that time Bush had not yet done so despite the fact that Cheney was oft-blamed for the contract in question.

    Thank you for taking the time to compile these. I would like to suggest that in the future, you refrain from such divisive titles. “Obama supporters will go hysterical…”? Is that your goal? To cause people to go hysterical? I think a more respectable goal would be to inform all Americans. Further, this sort of title will only drive Obama supporters (your target audience, if I am reading your blog correctly) away. This country has lived the politics of lies and corruption for too long. Truth is a powerful tool, but not when it is wielded by the people against the people. This information should be shared with good will, and with the intention to unite the people against a corrupt government, not with the intention to incite hysteria between parties, or between conservatives and liberals. Hysteria and divisiveness among average Americans are the very things that allow this madhouse government to continue their reign.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      Thank for your kind words about how you think people should read the content of the list. Your comment about how I titled it has merit. That being said, I did not literally mean that they would go “hysterical.” What I have noticed is that a lot of Obama supporters think that he should be immune from criticism – witness their recent “hysterical” reaction to the rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask. Every president in modern times has been mocked by rodeo clowns, and no one cared, until Obama was mocked. For whatever reason, a lot of Obama supporters cannot stand for him to be held to the same kinds of scrutiny and criticism as other presidents. I never meant that there would be mass panic or that anyone would end up in a mental institution. What I did mean is that their oversensitivity to criticism of Obama would be exposed. Liberals hated Bush for doing a lot of the things that are on this list, but they don’t care that Obama did them. But they do care when someone points out their hypocrisy.

    On a related note, one of the most egregious cases of political persecution happened during the Chrysler bankruptcy. 40-some Chrysler dealerships around the country were put completely out of business for no other reason than the fact that the owners contributed to conservative political campaigns. No democrat-owned dealerships were shut down. The evidence is clear that this was political malfeasance, but as with every Obama scandal, no one ever got punished for it.

      Like every other who has sought the office of President, Obama fully knew the challenges he would face. He confidently claimed, he above all others, was qualified, and capable, of doing miraculous things for the betterment of all Americans. Not once did he mention his grand scheme would require the full cooperation of the very legislative body that he continually berates, criticizes, and demonizes.
      Silence, and blame is what this administration is really good at, responsibility, and accountability, not very high on their list of priorities.

    Plus, read the headlines on Enenews.com to learn more on Japan’s nuclear meltdowns and how it’s affecting the world.

    Japan’s meltdowns of March 2011 are an important issue to become educated on because radiation was found in the air, milk, rain, drinking water, etc. in the U.S. (read articles written by Jeff McMahon of Forbes magazine) and scientists are finding increasing levels of radiation in the Pacific Ocean, which will reach the west coast of the U.S.

    Why do people like you always have to put President Bush into the equation when somebody makes a comment that happens to be true but not favorable for Obama? Since Obama has been in office he has not taking responsibility for anything and blamed Mr. Bush for everything. What ever happened to “the buck stops here”?

    He has never taken responsibility for anything that he has done unless he can get and or put a positive spin on it from his lackeys at NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the liberal press.

    If you agree with him and his policies then you are some kind of genius but if you disagree, you are a racist. Liberals and Dems are always preaching about freedom of speech unless they disagree with your opinion then you are racist and just stupid.

    I am totally disappointed with the Republican Party for not having the back bone to do the right thing and not worry about trying to be liked by the democrats. I am afraid with four more year of this racist president in office he is going to undo years of progress that we have achieved in the past.

    He is always taking the side for a black person before he has all of the information and his racist wife spends millions of our dollars to go to Chicago for the Hadiya Pendleton Funeral. I have not heard one word about any white person that died and she took time to even comment on it. If I am wrong on this, please let me know. These two people in my opinion will undo what Rev. King tried and died for. I do not believe (again in my opinion) Mr. King was talking about the same moves forward as the Obama’s are tiring to force on this nation.

Bernanke gets to impoverish half the country and Obama gets to save them with all kinds of petty hand outs. More food stamps, more welfare and more disability.

    Van Jones, Communist or not, is correct, 911 was an inside job. Self-professed protector of freedom, George Bush, is a fascist (both totalitarians), but if you ask him about 911 he’ll say that terrorist did it. So, who are you going to belief, Bush or Jones? So, being a communist doesn’t prove a thing. At least Jones is open about who he is. If Bush lies about who he is, claiming to be a protector of our freedoms, then, it should be obvious that he’ll lie about anything else–one lie, two, what does it matter? The only reason Obama got rid of Van Jones is because he, as well and the Bush administration, are hiding the facts about 911. Van Jones being vocal about 911 was opening a case the Feds by fiat declared closed. You can’t have an official destroying the official narrative now can you?

    Watch the Salomon Bros. building (WTC7) collapse into its own footprint at free-fall-speed, and then tell me 911 was not an inside job.

Instead the Mainstream media acts more like Obama’s personal State run media by helping to cover up all of these scandals. As a result of the public being kept ignorant of all of these scandals Americans reelected one of the most corrupt Presidents in our history.

    Obama and his EPA claim that bad weather only started happening recently, when CO2 levels were above 350ppm.

    His green supporters and cronies imply that extreme weather never took place prior to 1990 because ppm was below 350. This huge list refutes that lie.

        These “global warming/climate change” people, who I simply call chicken-little’s, conveniently ignore millions, or even billions of years worth of data that tells us the earth is in a perpetual state of climate change. Ice ages of varying degrees have come, and gone, and will again, with or without mans influence. Yet they would have us believe mans contribution over the past 50-100 years somehow overshadows that of natures ability to influence weather, with it’s solar cycles, volcanoes that spew thousands of metric tons of co2 with each eruption, the perpetual seepage of gasses from ocean floor spreading, plate tectonics, etc…
        Climate change is a certainty that has existed long before man ever walked the earth, and it will continue long after man has gone.
        They’ve just recently figured out a way to make money off of the naivete of their willing idiots, by trading carbon credits for cash, and screaming the sky is falling!

        Thanks. The environmental doomsayers who keep predicting disasters have been consistently wrong in their predictions about the end of the world, but that has never stopped them from continuing to believe in those predictions. They just keep pushing the dates forward again and again and again every time their predictions turn out to be wrong. We were supposed to have global famine and run out of every natural resources as the population doubled from 3 billion to 6 billion, but it never happened. In reality, the standard of living is much higher with 6 billion people than it was with 3 billion.

    To vote third party is to guarantee repeated victories for the totalitarian statists like Obama and his puppetmasters. It takes no guts or “conscience” to vote Libertarian or Constitution Party or whatever third party, and it’s actually childish.

    So you don’t like the Republican Party either, eh? They’re no different from the DemonRats! B.S!

    What really takes courage and fortitude in the quest to win back our liberty and justice is to work between elections and during the primary process to take charge of the Republican Party and nominate candidates with the constitutional principles you cherish. I’m no political dynamo, but at least I try to do my part to persuade, support, canvass, etc. as much as I can.

    I know there aren’t enough of us doing so to make much difference so far, but that’s why I’m writing this to the readers here. It’s futile to go third party, but it’s very possible to take over, or replace, one of the two major parties, and the Republican Party is the only one that is a viable choice.

    Take the GOP away from the power elites in DC who ARE the same as the Democrats, and nominate and elect Republicans who will defend the Constitution. It’s the only way; otherwise this country is dead.

Today there is no right or wrong with a nation divided that no longer knows what it believes in.

        Obama made those promises, and then he broke them. He does have the ability to fire the people who did those bad things, but he chose not to fire them. Obama is the boss who is ultimately in charge of these things.

      • BGills replied:

        Obama, knowing full well in advance the challenges of the office he sought, has repeatedly blamed every single failure of himself, and his administration on an inability to act unilaterally in the face of typical political opposition. He claims a willingness to compromise, in an attempt to effect meaningful change, but fails to fully comprehend the definition of the act. Only once did he request an exchange of ideas, but then summarily dismissed Republican input just days later in deference to earlier claims.
        Not once in his political career has he run a campaign based on his merits, but instead has repeatedly tried to paint himself as the lesser of two evils, by exposing inconsequential details of his opponents private lives. Two of Obama’s early political opponents, in two separate election, withdrew from their respective races, after court sealed details of their divorces had mysteriously found their way into the public domain. Hardly the behavior of an honorable man, seeking to do an honest public service.
        Dan’s list, to a great extent, bares out the true nature, and content of character, of a man willing to do anything to impose his will on an unwilling people, and world.

  74. Nina Green replied:

    I realize that most people will think my complaint about Obama’s lies is extremely insignificant, especially in comparison to things like war with Syria, etc. But it was my first experience with his lying and it concerned something very dear to my heart. I am a volunteer for a rescue organization for dogs so I was really impressed with Obama during his campaign for his first term. He advocated very strongly for adopting rescued dogs from shelters and criticized very strongly commercial dog breeders, etc. Obama even promised his prospective voters that he was wanting to get a family dog for his daughters and he planned to adopt a rescued dog from a shelter, but knew that he should wait until they moved into the white house and everybody was settled in.

    So what did he do after they got settled into the white house? He received a dog from a breeder. It is irrelevant how he received the dog. What’s important to me is that it was a broken promise that he did not adopt from a shelter. He excused the broken promise by saying one of his daughters was allergic, so he was forced to get an hypoallergenic type dog from a breeder. Did not anyone tell him that all breeds of dogs can be found in the shelters? Even hypoallergenic ones? Was that the first of many promises to be broken? Again, many people will think this is insignificant. But what’s significant to me was how cavalier he was at breaking his promise. That shows a very bad character flaw, one that I do not want in a US president.

    • BGills replied:

      You point out a very interesting pathology concerning the character of the president. For those who have been paying close attention, nothing is ever personally his fault. We have been fed a litany of excuses throughout his first term, ranging from “my daughter’s allergic,” ” It’s Bush’s fault,” to ” Congress won’t let me.” For some unknown reason, he seems to be surprised about impediments he should have been fully aware of.
      His behavior is not unlike that of a child who makes excuses day after day in regards to why he cannot produce his homework assignments.
      “My dog ate it,” “I forgot it at home,” “I couldn’t find a pen.”
      His first inclination is to fabricate what seems to be a plausible excuse, for his failures, and nearly every-time those excuses include blaming someone else. Nothing could ever be his fault, and it reveals an important character flaw. A flaw that displays a lack of responsibility, and accountability, two very important characteristics of a president.

      • james replied:

        you don’t even understand the words accountability and responsibility because these words are applied to the self, the individual, not catching my drift, well then look at it this way who has the lowest approval rating the republican house or Obama, the repub agenda is to get in Obamas way and that is no agenda and when you point fingers to Obama its more about republican obstructionism.Who doesn’t get this? I think many of the readers of this blog don’t get it Yes if I need to go to pay my bills and you block my path no matter what it is not me who is irresponsible but it is you, hopefully this will shed some light, but I am not holding my breathe

I call you stupid when you not even using basic common sense, you call names when your backed into a corner that you cant lie your way out of its obvious you have not looked at this issue very closely or you would be much more able to explain how all Obama supporters are socialist now that is stupid. The only thing you said that even strived to make sense is you say people like me caused the holocaust would not have happened yet you fail to identify the traits I posses that support such a goofy notion you just spout as most who have no clue about our issues and in fact your lack of understanding actually increases the problem, you also use the world utopia as if that’s what I want, heres a new flash brainiac the striving towards utopia is the goal of leaders worldwide who are not corrupt idiots even though it will never be attained, this shows me you have already given up on a fair and honest government so you use the world like its a joke your hopeless and you disrespect anyone who isn’t hopeless, good luck with your ideology maybe you can move to Russia someday and you can live with your type

      By the way, our economy was ruined by a Democrat controlled congress, and Socialist politicians like Barney Frank, who forced NINJA loans down the throats of our nations bankers, who were doing just fine until Community Organizers like Barack Obama decided everyone should be able to own their own home regardless their financial situation.
