Here are the new entries:

901) Emails prove that the Obama administration pressured CBS News to stop airing reports by Sharyl Attkisson

On October 3, 2011, CBS News aired a story by Sharyl Attkisson which showed that Attorney General Eric Holder had lied under oath regarding Fast and Furious. The report can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JaDEShZIvQ

On October 4, 2011, Holder’s top press aide, Tracy Schmaler, wrote the following in an email to White House Deputy Press Sectary Eric Schultz:

“I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer. She’s out of control.”

Schultz responded with an email that said:

“Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG.”

Afterward, CBS made it harder and harder for Attkisson to do reports on Fast and Furious, and she eventually quit her job at CBS.

902) Gave employers a $3,000 annual incentive, per employee, to hire illegal aliens instead of U.S. citizens

Obamacare, when combined with Obama’s November 2014 executive amnesty, gives employers a $3,000 annual incentive, per employee, to hire illegal aliens instead of U.S. citizens.

903) Falsely overstated the number of Obamacare signups by incorrectly including dental subscribers

In November 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had falsely overstated the number of Obamacare signups by incorrectly including 380,000 dental subscribers.

904) Falsely said that his “Power Africa” plan had achieved 25% of its goal during its first 17 months

In June 2013, Obama announced a new program called “Power Africa,” with a goal of building 10,000 megawatts of new electricity generation in Africa. In November 2014, the organization claimed that it had reached 25% of that goal. However, some of that claimed amount included electricity plants that had already been built before the plan was created. Also, some of that claimed amount included electric plants that had not been built at all, which had merely been written down on contracts that had been signed with the promise of getting built in the future.

905) Gave $100,000 of taxpayers’ money to one of his campaign donors to build an urban garden that never actually got built

When Obama was a state Senator in Illinois, he gave $100,000 of taxpayers’ money to Kenny B. Smith, an Obama campaign donor, to build an urban garden that never actually got built. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote of this:

“… what was supposed to be a six-block stretch of trees and paths is now a field of unfulfilled dreams, strewn with weeds, garbage and broken pavement.”

906) IRS employees who did not pay their taxes were still eligible for bonuses

In 2014, IRS employees who did not pay their taxes were still eligible for bonuses.

907) Falsely said that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would be “shipping Canadian oil to world markets, not to the United States”

In November 2014, Obama said that the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would be

“… shipping Canadian oil to world markets, not to the United States.”

Afterward, PolitiFact responded with:

We asked several energy economics experts, and they believe that quite a bit — if not most — of the Keystone XL crude oil will be bought and used by American refineries.

“It’s difficult to say with any certainty, but it is most likely that most would be refined in the U.S.,” said Kenneth Medlock, an expert in energy economics at Rice University in Texas.

A recent State Department report argues that it would not be “economically justified” for Canada to primarily export its Keystone XL oil to countries other than the United States, when there are plenty of American refineries to consume it.

Some independent refineries — particularly those in the upper Midwest, but also in Texas — are in desperate need of crude oil, said Charles Ebinger, a senior fellow in energy security at the Brookings Institution. Currently, the refineries have to import crude from places like Venezuela and Mexico — though it would be cheaper and better for overall energy security to buy from a North American source, rather than pay high transport costs.

On Nov. 17, TransCanada told Reuters, it “makes no business sense for our customers to transport oil down to the U.S. Gulf Coast, pay to export it overseas but then pay to transport millions of barrels of higher-priced oil back to the U.S. refineries to create the products we rely on.”

Ebinger added that many American refineries are geared to use heavy crude, which is what Keystone would transport from Canada’s tar sands.

908) Illegally obtained, and illegally released, confidential tax information about the Koch Brothers

In August 2010, the Obama administration illegally obtained confidential tax information about the Koch Brothers from the IRS. White House economic advisor Austan Goolsbee illegally released this confidential information to the media.

909)  After three private companies did exactly what Obamacare told them to do, the Obama administration sued them for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act

Obamacare encourages employers to offer their employees financial incentives to engage in healthy behaviors, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, etc. However, in November 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had sued Honeywell International and two smaller companies for doing exactly that. The Obama administration claimed that by doing what Obamacare told them to do, they were violating the Americans With Disabilities Act.

910) November 2014 Gallup poll showed that Obamacare made health care less affordable, which is the opposite of what Obama had promised

President Obama signed Obamacare in March 2010. In November 2014, the Daily Caller reported:

Gallup: Peak Number Of Americans Delaying Medical Care Over Costs

One in three Americans has put off seeking medical treatment in 2014 due to high costs, according to Gallup — the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 2001. 

Thirty-three percent of Americans have delayed medical treatment for themselves or their families because of the costs they’d have to pay, according to the survey. Obamacare, of course, had promised that it would help make health care more affordable for everyone, but the number of people who can’t afford a trip to the doctor has actually risen three points since 2013, before most Obamacare provisions took effect.

The hardest-hit: the middle-class. Americans with an annual household income of between $30,000 and $75,000 began delaying medical care over costs more in 2014, up to 38 percent in 2014 from 33 percent last year; among households that earn above $75,000, 28 percent delayed care this year, compared to just 17 percent last year.

911) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber secretly told the Democratic governor of Wisconsin that Obamacare would make premiums more expensive, at the same time that Obama was telling everyone it would make them less expensive

In November 2014, it was reported that in 2010, when Obama was telling everyone that Obamacare would make premiums less expensive, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber secretly told Jim Doyle, the Democratic governor of Wisconsin, that Obamacare would make premiums more expensive.

912) Obama nominated the defender of a convicted cop killer to be the head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division

In 2014, Obama nominated Debo Adegbile to be the head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Previously, Adegbile had worked as a lawyer for Mumia Abu-Jamal, who had been convicted of murdering a Philadelphia police officer. After Abu-Jamal had been sentenced to death, Adegbile got the death sentence overturned.

913) Illegally made it easier for illegal aliens who were convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse, burglary, unlawful possession or use of a firearm, drug dealing, and drunk driving, to stay in the U.S. after they finish their prison sentence

In November 2014, Obama made it easier for illegal aliens who were convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse, burglary, unlawful possession or use of a firearm, drug dealing, and drunk driving, to stay in the U.S. after they finish their prison sentence. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

914) After Palestinian terrorists murdered four Jews at a synagogue in Jerusalem, Obama said, “too many Palestinians have died”

In November 2014, after Palestinian terrorists murdered four Jews at a synagogue in Jerusalem, Obama said, “too many Palestinians have died.”

915) As part of Obama’s “stimulus,” he gave google billionaires a $1.6 billion loan guarantee to build a solar power plant that only produced half as much electricity as what they had predicted

Ivanpah is a solar power company owned by Google, BrightSource Energy, and NRG.

In April 2011, as part of Obama’s “stimulus,” Obama gave Ivanpah a $1.6 billion loan guarantee to build a solar power plant.

In November 2014, when the plant was up and running, Associated Press reported that it was producing only “about half of its expected annual output.” The California Energy Commission blamed this failure on “clouds, jet contrails, and weather.”

In November 2014, Ivanpah asked Obama for a $539 million bailout.

Google is owned by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. At the time they requested this $539 million bailout, Page was the 19th richest person in the world, with assets of $30.4 billion, and Brin was the 20th richest person in the world, with assets of $30 billion.

916) Photographs from 2007 show Obama marching with and speaking to the New Black Panther Party

These photographs from 2007 show Obama marching with and speaking to the New Black Panther Party.

917) Refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for their plot to commit murder and bombing

In a November 2014 undercover sting operation, the St. Louis police sold a fake bomb to members of the New Black Panther Party, who thought they were buying a real bomb. They tried to buy two additional bombs, but the EBT card that they were using did not have enough money on it. They were planning to murder Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch, and bomb the Gateway Arch.

Normally, the federal government would have charged them with terrorism.

However, the Obama administration refused to charge them with terrorism, or with plotting to commit murder and bombing. The only charges filed by the federal government were for making false statements when they attempted to purchase two 0.45 caliber pistols. The federal indictment made no mention whatsoever of their plot to commit murder and bombing.

918) Refused to explain why he nominated a campaign fundraiser who knew nothing about Hungary to be the ambassador of Hungary

In December 2014, Colleen Bell became the new U.S. ambassador to Hungary, even though she had been unable to name even one strategic interest the U.S. had with Hungary during her conformation hearing. When ABC reporter Jon Karl asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest why Bell was given this position, Earnest refused to answer. Bell had helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s 2012 campaign.

919) Falsely said that letting illegal aliens stay in the U.S. “will help secure the border”

In December 2014, the Obama administration released a fact sheet which falsely said that letting illegal aliens stay in the U.S. “will help secure the border.”

920) Refused to pay Obamacare navigators for work that they had done more than half a year earlier

In November 2014, it was reported that some Obamacare navigators had not been paid for work that they had done at the beginning of the year.

921) Forced some people to buy an Obamacare policy even though they were also enrolled in Medicare

In December 2014, it was reported that some people were being forced to buy an Obamacare policy even though they were already enrolled in Medicare. When these people tried to cancel their Obamacare plans, they were unable to do so.

922) After police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, Obama ignored the testimony from seven black witnesses, and the forensic evidence

On October 23, 2014, the Huffington Post reported:

Over a half-dozen black witnesses who have testified before a grand jury deciding whether to indict the police officer who killed Michael Brown have provided testimony that “largely supports” Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson’s account of events…

… forensic evidence showed that Brown’s blood was on the gun… other evidence was consistent with Wilson’s account of the shooting…

Based on this testimony and evidence, a St. Louis County grand jury decided on November 25, 2014, that it would not file charges against officer Wilson.

When Obama expressed his disappointment with the grand jury’s decision, he made no reference to these “witnesses” or “evidence.” The complete text of Obama’s statement can be read here.

In addition, after the grand jury announced its decision, the Obama administration said that it would continue its own investigation of officer Wilson.

923) For some families, Obamacare’s “affordable” insurance can cost them “almost a quarter of their family income”

In December 2014, NPR reported:

Don Benfield of Taylorsville, N.C., makes $11 an hour…

The situation only gets worse if Benfield decided to add his wife to his employer policy. Adding her would nearly triple the annual cost, driving it up to $6,200 a year, almost a quarter of their family income.

924) Illegally told employers that they could not dump their sick employees onto Obamacare exchanges

Obamacare allows employers to dump their sick employees onto Obamacare exchanges. However, in December 2014, the Obama administration told employers that they were not allowed to do this. Because Obama made this change to Obamacare without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

925) Illegally ordered for cash benefits to be given to illegal aliens

In November 2014, Obama ordered for cash benefits to be given to illegal aliens. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

926) Released 30,862 foreign criminals into U.S. cities and neighborhoods during fiscal year 2014

During fiscal year 2014, Obama released 30,862 foreign criminals into U.S. cities and neighborhoods.

927) Deported less than 1% of illegal aliens during fiscal year 2014

During fiscal year 2014, Obama deported less than 1% of the illegal aliens who were living in the U.S.

928) Falsely said “the good book says don’t throw stones at glass houses”

In December 2014, Obama falsely said, “The good book says don’t throw stones at glass houses.”

929) Illegally made it easier for illegal aliens to vote in U.S. elections

According to federal law, if an illegal alien with a child born in the U.S. wants to apply to become a U.S. citizen, the illegal alien must leave the U.S. and wait 10 years before their U.S. born adult child can sponsor them for citizenship. If and when they eventually do become a U.S. citizen, they would then be allowed to vote in U.S. elections. However, in November 2014, Obama eliminated this 10 year waiting requirement. Because he did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

930) “I’m an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family. Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I’d ever dreamed.”

In December 2014, the Washington Post wrote:

I’m an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family.

Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I’d ever dreamed.

By Catherine Keefe

December 10, 2014

Obamacare brought us new health insurance options, but cost us our more affordable plans.

In November 2013, Jim learned his small-business policy would be canceled because it didn’t comply with the new mandate to cover pediatric dentistry and maternity care.

The individual plan I had with Blue Cross was canceled, too.

We learned patience, but we couldn’t keep our doctors.

We had applied online and sent copies of our passports to California Covered for verification, but we received no bill, no confirmation of our coverage, no insurance cards. Jim spent an hour and a half on hold once before getting disconnected. He tried again the next day, waiting another two hours before getting disconnected.

… the urologist wouldn’t accept our new Blue Shield plan – even though the Blue Shield website said he did.

We have no choice to opt out of the required pediatric dentistry or maternity coverage we’ll never use…

931) Skipped 57% of his daily intelligence briefings during his first term

During Obama’s first term, he skipped 57% of his daily intelligence briefings.

932) Obama said 20% of female college students are sexually assaulted, but a study by his own Department of Justice said the actual number was 0.61%

Obama said 20% of female college students are sexually assaulted, but a study by his own Department of Justice said the actual number was 0.61%.

The 20% figure came from a study that counted “attempted forced kissing” as sexual assault.

933) Illegally used a racial double standard to decide who would get prosecuted for growing and selling marijuana

In December 2014, the Obama administration said that it would not prosecute Native Americans for growing and selling marijuana. 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.

934) The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 against the Obama administration’s claim that international law superseded U.S. law

In 1993, the U.S. adopted an international treaty called “Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction.” The purpose of this treaty was to deal with the possible widespread use of chemical weapons against large numbers of people by terrorists.

However, the Obama administration used this treaty to prosecute a woman who, after finding out that her husband had had an affair with another woman, used toxic chemicals to contaminate the mailbox and car of that other woman. The Obama administration argued that international law superseded U.S. law. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that this crime fell under the jurisdiction of state government, and not the international treaty.

    I have come to believe that Obama is NOT the USA’s #1 threat. !!!

    Why??? Because when you get down to brass tacks it was the voter who installed this filthy piece of shit into the office of the POTUS.

    The voting really needs a complete overhaul. New rules for voting should be Incorporated. #1:-The voters should be able to spell their name and know their SS# by heart.

    #2:- require’s the voter to not be on welfare or unemployment.

    #3:- rule should require at least 2 years in the military applying to both sexes.

    #4:- a “PASSING GRADE” on the immigration test that people who are seeking citizenship have to take.

    #5,6,7:- Be able to recite by heart “The Pledge of allegiance” – “The star spangled Banner” and “The Lords Payer”. ( and know which team won the Superbowl)

    #8:- a Passing Grade on 5th grade American History. (5th grade meaning back in 1950 standards)

    Thom. MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD was reported in the last election in 43 states and 343,000 military absentee votes were not counted.
    Legal voting did not put Obama in office. Criminal voter fraud did.
    And all this was supported by our elected representatives. Also known as political criminals. When 5 MILLION dead people in California can vote we cannot consider this man a legal president.
    When one person was counted as voting 37,428 times in Tennessee and Kentucky. Digitally of course.
    I agree with your overhaul and I would include a working knowledge of the US constitution and the political system as well.

      Painful stats.

        And yet many idiots still believe he was elected legally. Our main problem is the “secret ballot” because it does not allow for us to verify our vote was counted as cast.
        The whole system is bogus and easily circumvented.
        A true number ballot system can work and that printed in duplicate. Utilizing fill in the box forms and machine reading just like Military exams.
        The true number is read and logged in the system which is connected to the internet. They you can type in your true number from home to see how, where and when you were counted.

    I re-post my edited post, why Obama should be declared insane:

    No sane person, especially a president before the world at a G-20 Summit, at a live news conference in Australia, November 16, 2014, would dare to lie to the world, but Obama did.

    Obama when answering a simple question posed by a U.S. journalist Ed Henry; viewed around the world; president Barack Hussein Obama outright lied, when he knew the exact opposite to be true, Obama lied to the world!

    Question: “At your Burma town hall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders by saying, “governments need to be held accountable, need to be responsive to the people.” I wonder how you square that with your former adviser, Jonathan Gruber claiming you were not transparent about the health law because in his words the American people, the voters are stupid. Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan in order to get the bill passed?

    Obama: “No, I did not. I just heard about this. I get well briefed before I come out here. The fact that some advisor who never worked on staff expressed an opinion that I disagree with in terms of the voters is in no reflection on the process that was run.”

    Although Obama answered the question with a lie, it’s the fact he lies a lot. Because, Obama, during a live taped Brookings Institution panel in April 2006. A then Senator Barack Hussein Obama claimed he had “stolen” his ideas from a gang of liberal economists and academics, including his now-infamous Obamacare architect “Jon Gruber, my dear friend”. Obama did claim as his friend, comrade and confidante dictate, who helped him implement his Obamacare before congress and We the People, and he denied Grubers many visits to the White House.

    Therefore, Obama appears to be mentally unstable before the world and We the People; the normally and the least educated knowledgeable as a pathetic sick liar. Enough to be proven and claimed to be be mentally unable, even insane to govern 300 million American citizens legal or not, as proof of Obama’s insanity and lawless rule upon “Stupid” and not so “Stupid” population.

    Obama needs to leave office politely or be removed from office immediately; for he is speaking in pathetic lies to the world and America. Obama is very unstable and unable mentally to function as our president, for no nation or citizen can or ever believe him again.

    The president on numerous other recorded occasions has praised and showered Jon Gruber with tributes and honors for his work implementing Obamacare-ACA bill through the Congress, Senate and upon “Stupid” American voters. Obama denies his own trans-parenting overreach; he made to change the same law November 16, 2014.

    When President Obama admits to changing the ACA law, knowingly, that only congress can change a law! Obama by answering hecklers on November 25, 2014: stated “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law!”. Obama also rewrote many immigration laws himself.”

    Only a self-proclaimed despot tyrant would dare change and deny such a fiasco with” No. I did not. I just heard about this. I get well briefed before I come here.” to the world! Obama’s ludicrous “stupid” statements are to the point of being imbecilic, at best! Though, not for a delusional sociopathic liar as is President Obama! Obama by all psychiatric professional accounts is mentally unstable and without question, a dangerous pathological liar.

    President Obama is unfit to perform his presidential duties as proscribed by law and his Presidential Oath of Office: Thus he must be removed from office, in the invent his psychopathic and psychedelic manifestations from his admitted illicit drug use and dealings cause irreversible harm to the survival America and others by his unconstitutional illegal Executive Orders and Memorandums.

      The only way he will leave early is in front of a firing squad. Where he belongs.
