I just added items #1,126 through #1,137 to my list of Obama’s lies and lawbreaking

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

Here are the new entries:

1,126) For not doing their jobs, Obama defended Muslims but jailed a Christian

In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck drivers who refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic beverages.

However, in September 2015, the Obama administration put Kim Davis, a Christian court clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, in prison because she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

Here’s my take on both of these incidents: if someone refuses to do their job, they should be fired. An employer who fires an employee for not doing their job should not be sued by the government. Putting someone in jail for not doing their job is something that only a totalitarian would support – anyone who believes in freedom and liberty would find such an action reprehensible.

Obama’s different standards for Muslims and Christians is deplorable. Whatever position the Obama administration takes for workers who refuse to do their jobs, it should have the same standards for Muslims and Christians.

1,127) Falsely said “… there is no public official that is above the rule of law… Certainly not the President of the United States.”

In September 2015, the Obama administration put Kim Davis, a Christian court clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, in prison because she refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said of this:

“I will just say on principle that the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law and there is no public official that is above the rule of law… Certainly not the President of the United States. But neither is the Rowan county clerk. That’s a principle that is enshrined in our Constitution and in our democracy.”

However, this list contains a huge number of examples of Obama and public officials in his administration breaking the law without having any charges filed against them.

1,128) Used taxpayers’ money to buy nearly weekly round trip flights for an official of the so-called “Environmental Protection Agency”

Although Obama claimed to be against global warming, in September 2015 it was reported that he was using taxpayers’ money to buy nearly weekly round trip flights for an official of the so-called “Environmental Protection Agency.”

1,129) “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies”

Obama is Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military. In September 2015, the New York Times reported:

U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies

KABUL, Afghanistan — In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base.

“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”

Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play,” and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.

The American policy of nonintervention is intended to maintain good relations with the Afghan police and militia units the United States has trained to fight the Taliban. It also reflects a reluctance to impose cultural values in a country where pederasty is rife, particularly among powerful men, for whom being surrounded by young teenagers can be a mark of social status.

1,130) Illegally ignored an order by a federal judge for information about backups of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails

In September 2015, the Obama administration illegally ignored an order by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan to provide information on whether or not FBI investigators had been able to retrieve information about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from a backup thumb drive or from a server owned by a company that Clinton hired.

1,131) After Donald Trump offered to donate $5 million, and then later $50 million, to a charity of Obama’s choice if Obama made public his college records and passport application, Obama rejected the offers.

In October 2012, Donald Trump offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice if Obama made public his college records and passport application. Obama rejected the offer.

Trump later raised the offer to $50 million, and Obama still rejected it.

Why is Obama against that money being donated to charity?

What is Obama hiding?

1,132) Obama refused to defend innocent students who were wrongly accused unless their name was Mohamed

In September 2015 in Irving, Texas, a fourteen year old student named Ahmed Mohamed was arrested after being falsely accused of building a hoax bomb and bringing it to school. In reality, Mohamed had removed wires and other parts from the inside of a digital clock, put them inside a pencil case, and brought it to school to show his engineering teacher.

Obama defended Mohamed and invited him to the White House.

However, during Obama’s presidency there had previously been other students who were not named Mohamed who got in trouble with the police for similar non-dangerous things, but were not defended by Obama or invited to the White House. In 2010 in Forest Hills, New York, a 12 year old girl named Alexa Gonzalez was arrested for writing “I love my friends Abby and Faith. Lex was here 2/1/10 ” on a classroom desk. In 2010 in Sanford, North Carolina, a 17 year old girl named Ashley Smithwick was charged with a misdemeanor for having a small paring knife in her lunchbox. In 2013 in Holmes County, Mississippi, a five year old boy was taken home from school in a police car for violating the school’s dress code. In 2011 in Fort Myers, Florida, police were summoned to an elementary school after a girl kissed a boy. But Obama never defended any of those students, or invited them to the White House.

And those are just the ones where the police got involved. In cases where the police did not get involved, there have been dozens of reported incidents where students who were not named Mohamed got in trouble at school for things as ridiculous as pointing their finger like a gun, biting their pastry into the shape of a gun, threatening to shoot someone with a pink plastic toy gun that shoots bubbles, and dozens of other similar examples. But Obama never defended any of those students, or invited them to the White House.

1,133) “Kids with cancer and their parents ejected from park near White House”

In September 2015, the Washington Post reported:

Kids with cancer and their parents ejected from park near White House

The U.S. Secret Service ordered hundreds of parents and their cancer-stricken children out of Lafayette Square on Saturday night, barricading the park for at least two hours and disrupting the group’s plans for a candlelight vigil to raise awareness of and research funding for childhood cancer, participants said.

Some of the parents and children expressed hurt and disappointment that the Secret Service and Park Police, citing security precautions, virtually shut down part of a two-day event called CureFest for Childhood Cancer.

“We ended up waiting at the gates for two hours, and they never let us in,” said Natasha Gould, an 11-year-old from Canada who started a blog after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this year. “And to be clear, the entire crowd was half kids. I cried last night in my hotel room because it was my first CureFest, and I couldn’t believe people were acting like they don’t care about children.”

Organizers, aligned with the Truth 365 grass-roots child-cancer advocacy program, had obtained a permit to hold “A Night of Golden Lights,” in which participants would light electric candles.

But as the closure continued on, some of the sick children, fatigued by the wait or the need to receive medication, had to return to their hotel rooms, organizers said. Others began crying, and some parents became enraged. Attendees said the group of at least 700 people was not allowed access to personal items they left behind, such as chairs and blankets.

Police officers and agents on the scene told some parents that the closure was necessary because President Obama had left the White House from an entrance near the square…

1,134) The “Environmental Protection Agency” spilled three million gallons of toxic waste-water into the Animas River 

In August 2015, the “Environmental Protection Agency” spilled three million gallons of toxic waste-water into the Animas River near Silverton, Colorado. The spill included arsenic, lead, and cadmium.

1,135) The “most transparent administration in history” waited 24 hours to tell nearby residents that it had spilled toxic waste into the Animas River

In August 2015, the “Environmental Protection Agency” spilled three million gallons of toxic waste-water into the Animas River near Silverton, Colorado. Even though the spill included arsenic, lead, and cadmium, which are toxic, the Obama administration waited 24 hours to tell nearby residents about the spill.

Afterward, Investor’s Business Daily reported:

The EPA allows only minuscule amounts of these same metals in the air and water because it thinks they are so harmful.

The “safe” level for arsenic in drinking water is a tiny 10 parts per billion. Its hugely expensive mercury and air toxic rule was designed to get coal and oil plants to cut already tiny emissions of mercury, cadmium and other such pollutants.

Yet tests have shown lead spiking at thousands of times higher than government-approved levels, arsenic at 800 times and extremely high levels of beryllium, cadmium and mercury because of the EPA spill.

And the spill has affected seven water systems in New Mexico and Colorado…

1,136) Falsely said the Animas River spill was nothing more than a “pulse” that had “dissipated in about an hour”

In August 2015, the Obama administration falsely said that the Animas River spill was nothing more than a “pulse” that had “dissipated in about an hour.”

1,137) After the Animas River spill, the Obama administration falsely said it would “hold ourselves to the same standards that we would anyone that would have created this situation”

In August 2015, the “Environmental Protection Agency” spilled three million gallons of toxic waste-water into the Animas River near Silverton, Colorado. Afterward, EPA regional director Shaun McGrath said the EPA would

“hold ourselves to the same standards that we would anyone that would have created this situation.”

However, his statement was false.

The Washington Times reported:

EPA won’t face fines for polluting rivers with orange muck

Unlike BP, which was fined $5.5 billion for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster, the EPA will pay nothing in fines for unleashing the Animas River spill.

“Sovereign immunity. The government doesn’t fine itself,” said Thomas L. Sansonetti, former assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s division of environment and natural resources.

The only thing you can do to incompetent bureaucrats is fire them. But it won’t happen in this administration, unless they find a lower level functionary to be the scapegoat.

    Since 1855 the house has been Republican controlled 37 times
    Since 1855 the house has been Democrat controlled 44 times

    You know I cannot help but laugh at the Democrats when they say they have a plan to make America better. According to infoplease.com http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0774721.html the Liberals has been in control of the house a total of 44 times since 1855. I would think that would be plenty of time to make the perfect Utopia the Liberals wanted.
    Now, as of 2015 it seems that the Liberals are more in control of the money that comes in and goes out, especially goes out.
    Can someone tell me why I do not live in the perfect Utopia that Obama is giving us all the impression that there is?
