Here are 10 more reasons I’m sooo glad I didn’t vote for Obama

The complete list can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/obama-252/

Here are the new entries:

971) The “most transparent administration in history” said it won’t let the public see its 332 page net neutrality plan until after the FCC voted on its implementation

In February 2015, the Obama administration said that it would not let the public see its 332 page proposal for net neutrality until after the FCC voted on its implementation.

972) Obama’s 332 page net neutrality plan contained excessive levels of taxation and regulation

Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Paisaid said that Obama’s net neutrality plan was 332 pages long, and that

“It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works…”

“The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband… These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.”

“The plan saddles small, independent businesses and entrepreneurs with heavy-handed regulations that will push them out of the market… As a result, Americans will have fewer broadband choices. This is no accident. Title II was designed to regulate a monopoly. If we impose that model on a vibrant broadband marketplace, a highly regulated monopoly is what we’ll get.”

The Daily Caller reported:

In his initial cursory overview of the plan, the commissioner said it would hinder broadband investment, slow network speed and expansion, limit outgrowth to rural areas of the country and reduce Internet service provider (ISP) competition.

973) “President Obama’s 2016 budget targets retirement accounts”

In February 2015, MSN published this article titled “President Obama’s 2016 budget targets retirement accounts.”

974) Tax Policy Center, a liberal think tank, said Obama’s proposed “middle class” tax cut was actually an increase in taxes for the middle class

In January 2015, Tax Policy Center, a liberal think tank, said that Obama’s proposed “middle class” tax cut was actually an increase in taxes for the middle class. Specifically, it said Obama’s policy would result in a seven dollar tax increase for the middle quintile.

975) Bill Maher said Obama “… is perhaps the worst president we’ve had on clamping down on the press”

In January 2015, Bill Maher said Obama…

“… is perhaps the worst president we’ve had on clamping down on the press.”

976) George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley said of Obama, “… many of his actions… are violations of his oath of office”

In January 2015, George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley said of Obama:

“The effort to establish unilateral authority presents an existential threat to our system of government. Although the President has insisted that he is merely exercising executive discretion, any such discretion by definition can only occur within the scope of granted authority and only to the extent that it is not curtailed by the language of the Constitution. This includes his obligation to faithfully execute the law. U.S. Const. art. II, § 3, cl. 4. Some of the President’s actions can be viewed as within permissible lines of discretion. However, many of his actions cannot and are violations of his oath of office. That oath is not merely an affirmative pledge to defend the Constitution but to yield to its limitations on his own authority. To put it simply, that was the deal struck on January 20, 2013.”

977) Julie Moreno borrowed $14,000 to pay for cataract surgery because her Obamacare policy refused to pay for it

In February 2015, it was reported that Julie Moreno of Mountain View, California, borrowed $14,000 to pay for cataract surgery because her Obamacare policy refused to pay for it.

978) Lied about the unemployment rate

In February 2015, Gallup CEO Jim Clifton wrote:

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

979) Instead of deporting illegal aliens, the Obama administration spent taxpayers’ money to give them hormone therapy

In January 2015, it was reported that instead of deporting illegal aliens, the Obama administration spent taxpayers’ money to give them hormone therapy.

980) Illegally gave 982,000 work permits to illegal aliens and other foreign nationals who were not legally qualified for admission

During Obama’s first six years as President, he illegally gave 982,000 work permits to illegal aliens and other foreign nationals who were not legally qualified for admission.

    Seriously, you need to get a life. Badly.

    Despite what you say, and to quote our President “I know…I won both of them”. That’s really all that matters.

      I agree with you that Obama won both elections.

      Those blinders were surgically implanted on you, I agree, but what horse or jackass donated them for you to see so clearly in left field?

    No matter how egregious Ohbongo’s violations are, nothing ever happens to him. He really is “Barack, the Magic Negro!”

    Michael Connelly, Constitutional Lawyer

    The Constitution of the United States provides a specific definition of treason against our nation. Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution states: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” This has been legally interpreted as meaning that any action that seeks to strengthen our country’s enemies or weaken our ability to defend ourselves against our enemies can be classified as treason. This can be direct support or the enemy or even an attempt to provide support.

    There is no question that the enemy that we face and many other counties face is Islamic Jihad. It has manifested itself as Al Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS, and other groups that promote the radical Islamic agenda of destroying or subjugating every country in the world to the Muslim religion. It is a religion that condones placing women in slavery, outlawing basic human freedoms, and killing its opponents in barbaric ways.

    The following is a factual listing of the actions of the person who is masquerading as the President of the United States. You can decide for yourself if any or all of these fit the definition of treason by providing aid and comfort to the enemy.

    —Since taking office in 2009, Obama has had numerous known terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay, some without the prior notice to the members of Congress required by law. This includes the release of five top Taliban leaders in exchange for an Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl. At least one of these Taliban leaders is back in action with the Taliban and many of the other released terrorists have rejoined the Islamic Jihad against America.
    —Has openly supported the Muslim Brotherhood since he took office. He has supported it in the Middle East and appointed active members of the brotherhood to his administration including to sensitive positions in the Department of Homeland Security. The Muslim Brotherhood has a manifesto that openly calls for the imposition of radical Sharia law on the entire world and the destruction of all other forms of government and law.
    —Obama withdrew American troops from Iraq without leaving any forces behind to help secure the country, as was requested by the Iraqi government. This created a vacuum that has been filled by ISIS and affiliates of Al Qaeda.
    —Obama imposed rules of engagement on American troops in Afghanistan that limited their ability to be effective both offensively and defensively and led to the unnecessary deaths of American soldiers.
    —He refused to call the massacre of American soldiers at Ft Hood by Major Nidal Hasan, a committed Islamic fanatic, a terrorist attack, but labeled it as an act of workplace violence.
    —Obama released the identity of Seal Team 6 and that they had killed Bin Laden. Many people believe that this led to the deaths of many team members in Afghanistan.
    —Obama deliberately lied about Al Qaeda being decimated when he was aware it was getting stronger.
    —He covered up for weeks the fact that the slaughter of Americans in Benghazi, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a terrorist attack despite the fact that the White House knew from the beginning that it was. He then refused to allow any rescue operations to be launched.
    —Has unilaterally eased sanctions on Iran after cutting a temporary deal that is favorable only to Iran. He has continued to allow Iran to kick a final deal down the road and they can continue to enrich uranium during these delays. That will allow them to build an operable nuclear bomb within a few months. Iran is also being allowed to acquire and test missiles that can be used against Israel, targets in Europe, and even U.S. targets.
    —He has seriously damaged our relationship with our allies and by allowing the release of sensitive intelligence information has seriously damaged our ability to get intelligence about possible attacks on Americans around the world.
    —Obama has opened our southern border so that criminals and terrorists have easy access to our country.
    —Obama also refused to acknowledge the threat of ISIS for over a year, even after being briefed repeatedly on the rise of ISIS.
    —Once he was forced into taking action against ISIS, it has been weak and mostly ineffective, with Obama micro managing our airstrikes so that many of the targets are empty buildings and vehicles.
    —Now he has made a speech asking the Congress to give him authority to fight ISIS, but has broadcast his intentions to the enemy that the actions will be very limited and not an all-out effort against the Islamic terrorists. Of course, he also still refuses to acknowledge that Al Qaeda and ISIS are in fact forces of Islamic Jihad.
    —He has minimized the brutal actions of ISIS by equating the Christian Crusades of a thousand years ago to what ISIS is doing now to innocent Christian men, women, and children as well as other Muslims who resist their radical views.
    —He held a secret meeting in the White House with Muslim leaders including some with direct contacts with terrorist organizations.

    In my opinion, this is much more than political correctness run amok. The actions described above are those that clearly provide aid and comfort to the enemies of not just the United States, but to the entire free world. Let me know what you think.
