Here are 18 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:

1,108) Although it was two years beyond its deadline and $139 million over budget, Obama’s Modernize and Innovate the Delivery of Agricultural Systems had only completed one of its 66 tasks

In 2010, the Department of Agriculture created a new program called “Modernize and Innovate the Delivery of Agricultural Systems.” The program was supposed to accomplish 66 tasks by June 2013, at a cost of $305 million.

However, as of June 2015, the program was two years behind its deadline, the total spending was $444 million, and only one of its 66 tasks had been completed.

1,109) Waited until he announced his presidential candidacy to pay 15 parking tickets that were more than a decade old

Between 1988 and 1991, Obama received 17 parking tickets, but only paid two of them at the time. He waited until 2007 to pay the other 15.

1,110) When Obama announced a new government program to address the problem of declining bee colonies, the private sector had already restored the number of lost colonies

Much of our food supply depends on pollination by bees. The genuinely serious problem of colony collapse disorder began in 2006. Over the next decade, commercial beekeepers solved the problem. In March 2015, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that the number of U.S. honeybee colonies was at a 20 year high. At the same time, U.S. honey production was at a 10 year high.

However, in May 2015, the Obama administration announced a new government program called “National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.”

1,111) Illegally created a $1 million fine and 20 year prison sentence for law abiding citizens who talked about the technical specifications of guns on the internet without getting prior approval from the federal government

In June 2015, the Federal Register was updated to include a $1 million fine and 20 year prison sentence for law abiding citizens who talked about the technical specifications of guns on the internet without getting prior approval from the federal government. This prior restraint on free speech is a violation of the First Amendment.

1,112) Gave H-1B visas to Disney so it could fire its American employees and replace them with foreign workers – the company even had the nerve to order the American employees to train their foreign replacements

Although the alleged reason for the H-1B visa program is to fill jobs that Americans don’t want to work at, in June 2015 it was reported that the Obama administration had given H-1B visas to Disney so it could fire its American employees and replace them with foreign workers. The company even had the nerve to order the American employees to train their foreign replacements.

1,113) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton avoided putting the Nigerian terrorist organization Boko Haram on the State Department’s terrorist watch list after a high-level Nigerian official donated to Clinton’s foundation

Boko Haram is a Nigerian terrorist organization. Gilbert Chagoury is a Nigerian businessman and diplomat. After Chagoury donated between $1 million and $5 million to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Clinton’s State Department avoided putting Boko Haram on its terrorist watch list. After Clinton resigned and John Kerry became the new Secretary of State more than two years later, Kerry put Boko Haram on the State Department’s terrorist watch list.

1,114) During the California drought, the Obama administration diverted 260 billion gallons of water each year to try to save the delta smelt

During the California drought, the Obama administration diverted 800,000 acre-feet of water per year (that’s 260 billion gallons per year) to try to save the delta smelt, a three inch fish.

1,115) Illegal aliens released by the Obama administration were later charged with committing 121 murders on U.S. soil

In June 2015, it was reported that illegal aliens who had been released by the Obama administration were later charged with committing 121 murders on U.S. soil.

1,116) Illegally withheld its report on Iranian human rights abuses

Although the Obama administration was legally required to release its report on Iranian human rights abuses by February 25, 2015, it did not do so.

1,117) Falsely said “This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.”

In June 2015, after Dylann Roof shot and killed 9 people in Charleston, South Carolina, Obama said the two following sentences:

“This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.”

In response to Obama’s first sentence, PolitiFact wrote:

On July 22, 2011, a total of 80 people were killed in Norway when Anders Behring Breivik, a political extremist, bombed a government building in Oslo and then went on a shooting rampage on the island of Utoya, just outside the city.

On March 11, 2009, in Winnenden, Germany, a teenage gunman killed 15 people. The majority of the victims were children and teachers killed when the shooter opened fire in three classrooms in a local secondary school. The gunman shot two other people before killing himself after being cornered by the local police.

On Sept. 23, 2008, in Kuahajoki, Finland, a gunman shot 10 people to death after opening fire on a classroom in the Kuahajoki School of Hospitality. After killing the students, the shooter burned the victims’ bodies.

In response to Obama’s second sentence, PolitiFact wrote:

At 0.15 mass shooting fatalities per 100,000 people, the U.S. had a lower rate than Norway (1.3 per 100,000), Finland (0.34 per 100,000) and Switzerland (1.7 per 100,000).

1,118) Obama hired Katherine Archuleta, the director of the United States Office of Personnel Management, based on her ethnicity instead of on her job skills

In May 2013, Obama nominated Katherine Archuleta to be director of the United States Office of Personnel Management. Although she had no tech or cyber-security experience when she was hired, an official White House press release bragged that she was “the first Latina” to hold the position.

In July 2015, it was reported that the private information of 21 million U.S. citizens had been hacked from the Office of Personnel Management by Chinese hackers. For some victims who were employees of the U.S. government, this hacked private information included information about their sex lives, drug and alcohol abuse, and gambling compulsions.

It was very easy for the Chinese hackers to obtain this information, because the Office of Personnel Management had outsourced some of its work to China, and had given Chinese IT employees “direct access to every row of data in every database.”

After the data breach was reported by the media, Archuleta resigned from her position.

1,119) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegally withheld 15 of her work related emails that had been on her private server, after having falsely claimed that she turned all of them over

In June 2015, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had illegally withheld 15 of her work related emails that had been on her private server, after having falsely claimed that she had turned all of them over.

1,120) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton falsely said the reason she used a private email server was because she only wanted to use one device

In March 2015, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave the following explanation for why she used a private email server:

“When I got to work as secretary of state, I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department… because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two.”

However, later that same month, it was reported that she had actually used two devices – an iPad and a Blackberry.

1,121) Obama’s nuclear “inspection” deal with Iran gave Iran as much as 24 days advance notice before “inspections,” and even after that 24 day period, Iran still had the option to reject any and all “inspections”

In July 2015, Obama signed a nuclear “inspection” deal with Iran. ABC News wrote the following about this:

UN inspectors can demand access to nuclear facilities on Iran military sites, but they aren’t immediate or even guaranteed. Any inspections at those sites would need to be approved by a joint commission composed of one member from each of the negotiating parties. The process for approving those inspections could take as many as 24 days, which critics will claim is enough time for Iran to cover up any non-compliance.

The deal allowed for “inspections” that weren’t real inspections. This “inspection” deal gave Iran as much as 24 days advance notice before “inspections,” and even after that 24 day period, Iran still had the option to reject any and all inspections.

1,122) Falsely said his nuclear inspection deal with Iran would allow inspections to take place “anywhere, anytime”

In April 2015, while talking about Obama’s nuclear inspections deal with Iran, Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, said:

“… under this deal, you will have anywhere, anytime, 24/7 access as it relates to the nuclear facilities that Iran has…”

However, in July 2015, ABC News reported that the deal gave Iran as much as 24 days advance notice before inspections, and that even after that 24 day period, Iran still had the option to reject any and all inspections.

1,123) The Iranian official whom Secretary of State John Kerry negotiated the Iranian nuclear inspections deal with is the father of the best man from Kerry’s daughter’s wedding

Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian official whom Secretary of State John Kerry negotiated the Iranian nuclear inspections deal with in 2015, is the father of the best man from Kerry’s daughter’s 2009 wedding.

1,124) Continued Bush’s policy of using the NSA to spy on the President of France

In June 2015, it was reported that Obama had continued Bush’s policy of using the NSA to spy on the President of France.

1,125) Forced public schools to enroll illegal aliens who did not have the mandatory vaccines that all other students were required to have

U.S. public schools require all students to be vaccinated against certain diseases. However, in September 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had forced public schools to enroll illegal aliens who did not have these vaccines.

    What get me the most is that these politicians feel they are above the law at the time they are breaking it. Then when it is brought to their attention their supporters defend their actions with HE FORGOT.
    I wonder if I can say “I FORGOT” when it come time to pay the ticket years down the road?

      Have no fear, for their road is a Dead End in hell.

        So far my dear friend, this is the longest dead end road I have ever traveled. I keep looking for the branch in the road to take me away from all this shhh.

      • poetopoet replied:

        The road to heaven gets rough and tough and is not a dead end, that olive branch may be from hell.

        Those bastards are on the low road to hell, it is their Dead End, not yours.
