Items 1 through 500 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/obama-252/

Items 1,001 through 1,366 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/obama-part-3/

Below are items 501 through 1,000:

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.”

503) Spent $65 million on television ads to promote tourism in New York and New Jersey

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $65 million on television ads to promote tourism in New York and New Jersey

504) Spent $1.5 million per year to tell the movie industry how to portray the FBI in movies

In December 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $1.5 million each year to tell the movie industry how to portray the FBI in movies.

505) Threatened to fine Catholic nuns over Obamacare’s birth control mandate, all the way to the Supreme Court

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.

However, in December 2013, the Obama administration claimed that it had never said such a thing.

509) May force thousands of volunteer firefighter departments to close

In Janaury 2014, it was reported that thousands of volunteer firefighter departments might be forced to close because they could not afford the cost of Obamacare.

510) Falsely said that 2.1 million people had signed up for private insurance under Obaamacare by the end of 2013

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

In January 2014, it was reported that Obamacare includes bailouts for private insurance companies.

514) Wal-Mart’s insurance was better and cheaper than Obamacare

In January 2014, it was reported that the insurance that Wal-Mart had been giving its employees was better and cheaper than Obamacare.

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

In January 2014, Obama delayed the Obamacare enrollment deadline for people with preexisting conditions. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

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

Obamacare prohibits private employers from giving better insurance to top executives than to other employees. In January 2014, Obama delayed this provision of Obamacare. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

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

Obama first met Mark Obama Ndesandjo, his half bother, in the 1980s. However, in 2013, Obama said that the two had recently met for the first time.

522) Spent $544,338 for an “Enhanced Company Profile” on LinkedIn

In January 2013, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $544,338 for an “Enhanced Company Profile” on LinkedIn.

523) Illegally tried to force private businesses to post pro-union notices

In January 2014, two federal appeals courts struck down Obama’s attempt to force private businesses to post pro-union notices.

524) In 2013, Obamacare caused a net reduction in the number of people who had insurance

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.

525) Criticized the Daily Caller for truthfully reporting that in 2013, Obamacare had caused a net reduction in the number of people who had insurance

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

The Obamacare website is exempt from laws that require other websites to tell their customers when their private information has been breached.

528) Less than one third of Obamacare enrollees were previously uninsured

In January 2014, it was reported that less than one third of the people who had enrolled at the Obamacare website were previously uninsured.

529) Gave early release to a lawyer who had been convicted of aiding Islamic terrorists

In December 2013, the Obama administration gave early release to Lynne Stewart, who had been convicted of aiding Islamic terrorists.

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) Revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive

In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive.

This sets 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 anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza arrested for violating campaign finance laws, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws three different times without being arrested

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.

In May 2014, D’Souza pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws.

In September 2014, D’Souza was sentenced to live in a halfway house for eight months, pay a $30,000 fine, perform 260 days of community service, and receive counseling.

However, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws on three different occasions (see here, here, and here), Obama never had himself arrested.

Numerous legal experts have said that D’Souza’s arrest was politically motivated.

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.”

Those legal experts are correct. The real reason D’Souza was arrested was because he made an anti-Obama movie. As long as Obama never makes an anti-Obama movie, Obama will never be arrested for this three violations of campaign finance law.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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

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

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.

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, 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.

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.

657) Threatened to veto a bill that would change Obamacare’s definition of “full time” from 30 hours per week to 40

Obamacare’s employer mandate only applies to “full time” employees, which Obamacare defines as those who work at least 30 hours per week. This has encouraged many employers to reduce their employees’ weekly hours to 29.

Obama threatened to veto this proposal.

It’s the number of physicians whose secretaries feigned empathy while rehearsing the “I’m so sorry” line before curtly hanging up.

661) Ann Coulter said her friend’s sister died because of Obamacare

In June 2012, an Obama ad said:

“President Obama knows that women being paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men isn’t just unfair, it hurts families.”

While women do indeed get paid 77 cents for every dollar that a man gets, it is not for the “same work.” The Huffington Post reported that the claim that women get paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the “same work” as men is wrong: the comparison is not for the “same work,” the comparison does not adjust for education, job, experience, hours worked per week, etc., and when you do adjust for those things, the gap disappears. People who claim that the gap exists count a male lawyer and a female librarian as having the “same” job, even though lawyers earn far more than librarians.

However, as of February 2014, Obama had broken that promise 168 times.

670) Removed 1.5 million medical orders from waiting lists at Veterans Administration hospitals without actually providing any medical care

In May 2014, the Washington Examiner reported:

More than 1.5 million medical orders were canceled by the Department of Veterans Affairs without any guarantee the patients received the treatment or tests they needed, the Washington Examiner has found.

Since May 2013, veterans’ medical centers nationwide have been under pressure to clear out 2 million backlogged orders for patient care or services.

They were given wide latitude to cancel unfilled appointments more than 90 days old. By April 2014, the backlog of what the agency calls “unresolved consults” was down to about 450,000.

What happened to other 1.5 million appointments is something that no one, including top officials at the veterans’ agency, can answer.

In May 2014, CNN reported:

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.

The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources.

671) Falsely said that he found out about long waiting lists at Veterans Administration hospitals on the news in 2014

678) Obamacare is illegal because it originated in the Senate instead of in the House

The Obama administration argued in front of the Supreme Court that the Obamacare mandate was a tax.

The U.S. Constitution requires all tax bills to originate in the House, but Obamacare originated in the Senate.

679) Moved control of the Census Bureau from the commerce secretary to the White House

In March 2009, Obama moved control of the Census Bureau from the commerce secretary to the White House. Larry Sabato, a professor at the University of Virginia, said of this:

“The last thing the census needs is for any hard-bitten partisan (either a Karl Rove or a Rahm Emanuel) to manipulate these critical numbers… Partisans have a natural impulse to tilt the playing field in their favor, and this has to be resisted.”

680) Changed questions in the census to falsely inflate the number of people who gained insurance from Obamacare

In April 2014, the New York Times reported:

Census Survey Revisions Mask Health Law Effects

The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall…

… the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable…

An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.

“We are expecting much lower numbers just because of the questions and how they are asked,” said Brett J. O’Hara, chief of the health statistics branch at the Census Bureau.

681) Illegally created a new Obamacare rule and penalty without approval from Congress

In May 2014, the New York Times reported:

Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government by sending their employees to a health insurance exchange with a tax-free contribution of cash to help pay premiums, but the Obama administration has squelched the idea in a new ruling. Such arrangements do not satisfy the health care law, the administration said, and employers may be subject to a tax penalty of $100 a day — or $36,500 a year — for each employee who goes into the individual marketplace.

Obama’s actions here are illegal. There is nothing in Obamacare that gives Obama or the IRS the power to prohibit employers from dumping employees onto Obamacare exchanges, or for fining them $100 a day per employee for doing so. The President does not have the legal authority to change the law without those changes first being approved by Congress.

682) Obamacare forced colon cancer survivor Janet Grigg to lose her doctor. Her new Obamacare policy covers zero doctors within a 400 mile radius of her home.

Janet Grigg lives in Oklahoma and is a survivor of colon cancer. Obamacare caused her to lose coverage for her doctor. Her new Obamacare policy covers zero doctors within a 400 mile radius of her home. You can see a video of her at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FoyREgDH_8

685) Obama broke the same law that Martha Stewart had gone to prison for breaking

Solyndra’s shareholders and executives made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, the company spent a large sum of money on lobbying the Obama administration, and its executives had many meetings with Obama White House officials. Afterward, Obama gave $535 million of taxpayers’ money to Solyndra. Before Obama gave the money to Solyndra, Obama 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 funding 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.

686) Refused to explain why he waited two years to label Boko Haram as a terrorist organization

In 2011, an organization called Boko Haram bombed the Abuja U.N. headquarters. However, the Obama administration waited two years to label it as a terrorist organization, and would not explain why it waited.

691) Illegally released five “high risk” Taliban terrorists

Federal law requires the President to notify Congress 30 days before releasing terrorists. However, in May 2014, Obama released five “high risk” Taliban terrorists without giving advance notification.

692) Under Commander-in-Chief Obama, a military deserter was given promotions instead of a court-martial

In June 2009, private first class Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post. Afterward, instead of being court-martialed, he was promoted to the rank of specialist in June 2010, and later promoted to the rank of sergeant in June 2011.

693) Falsely said a military deserter had been “captured on the battlefield” and had served “with honor and distinction”

In June 2009, private first class Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post. However, in June 2014, Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, said that Bergdahl had been “captured on the battlefield” and had served “with honor and distinction.”

694) Commander-in-Chief Obama did not know that the letter “p” in the word “corpsman” was silent

Commander-in-Chief Obama pronounced the letter “p” in the world “corpsman” twice in less than a minute. For a young child who is learning how to read, such a pronunciation makes perfect sense. But for the Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military in the world, it is inexcusable.

695) Referred to the Taliban Five as “gentlemen”

At 3:25 in this video from June 2014, Marie Harf, the deputy spokesperson for Obama’s State Department, refers to the five then-recently released Taliban terrorists as “gentlemen.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWQ28sUBvwE

696) Illegally invited, encouraged, and allowed tens of thousands of unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants to enter and stay in the U.S., and then pretended to be surprised when they showed up

In 2012, the Obama administration announced that unaccompanied minor illegal immigrant children would not be deported.

In January 2014, the Obama administration placed an advertisement requesting contract services to care for 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children.” The advertisement can be read here. However, afterward, when these illegal immigrants entered the U.S., the Obama administration pretended to be surprised at their arrival.

They are largely from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

95% of them said the main reason they came was because of Obama’s new promise for amnesty.

In June 2014, Associated Press reported:

The number of unaccompanied minors detained on the U.S. border has more than tripled since 2011.

The migrants also uniformly said they decided to head north because they had heard that a change in U.S. law requires the Border Patrol to swiftly release children and their mothers and let them stay in the United States.

The Central American minors who cross the border alone have generally been released into the care of relatives already in the U.S…

… many are reporting in calls back home that they’re free to move around the U.S.

Also in June 2014, Associated Press reported:

The Obama administration has released into the U.S. an untold number of immigrant families caught traveling illegally from Central America in recent months — and although the government knows how many it’s released, it won’t say publicly.

Senior U.S. officials directly familiar with the issue, including at the Homeland Security Department and White House, have so far dodged the answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that they did not know the figure or didn’t have it immediately at hand. “We will get back to you,” the Homeland Security deputy secretary said Friday.

The figure is widely believed to exceed 40,000 since October. It’s believed to be slightly below the roughly 52,000 children caught traveling illegally from Central America over the same period, an extraordinary increase since last year that is driving a humanitarian crisis at the border.

Instead of returning these illegal immigrants to south of the border, the Obama administration made plans to ship some them to Virginia and New York.

In June 2014, the Obama administration announced that it would give $254.6 million to the countries that sent these illegal immigrants to the U.S. Obama was planning to reward illegal immigration by subsidizing it. Whatever you subsidize, you get more of it. When you subsidize illegal immigration, you get more of it.

697) Falsely claimed to have “lost” Lois Lerner’s emails

In June 2014, the IRS claimed that emails from Lois Lerner (a high level IRS employee) to outside agencies from January 2009 through April 2011 had been “lost” when her hard drive “crashed.” However, a private company called Sonasoft had a contract with the IRS since 2005 to back up all of the IRS’s emails. The company keeps multiple and redundant backup copies of all the IRS’s emails. The company advertised itself by saying “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to back up their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your servers?” In addition, Norman Cillo, an Army veteran who had worked in intelligence, and who had also worked as a program manager at Microsoft, listed six reasons why the IRS’s claim about “losing” the emails must be false. Also, federal law requires the IRS to keep permanent, backup copies of all of its emails at an external location. And finally, the NSA has copies of all of the emails.

698) Obama’s so-called “indepentent” investigator of the Solyndra scandal donated $52,500 to Obama’s campaign

Although a so-called “independent” review said that Obama had not done anything wrong in the Solyndra scandal, it was later reported that Herbert M. Allison Jr., the person who had conducted this “independent” review, donated $52,500 to Obama’s campaign.

699) Gave bonuses to employees who created Oregon’s defective Obamacare website

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.

However, in June 2014, it was reported that the employees who had built Oregon’s defective Obamacare website had been given $650,000 in taxpayer funded bonuses.

Before that, when Barron was an official in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, he had written two memos arguing in favor of using drones to kill U.S. citizens without a trial. When it was requested that these memos be made public, Obama refused to do so.

702) In 2013, Obama released hundreds of illegal aliens who had been convicted of violent crimes

712) Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau stopped conducting employee evaluations because they were “racist”

In May 2014, it was reported that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had stopped conducting employee evaluations because they were “racist.” The agency’s new policy would pay all employees as if they had received the highest score. This new policy will cost more than $5 million.

713) Fined Toyota $1.2 billion for the non-existent “problem” of “unintended acceleration” after a government study proved that Toyota had done nothing wrong

Beginning in 2009, there were media reports that Toyota cars had a “problem” called “unintended acceleration.” Allegedly, when drivers stepped on the break, their cars would go faster instead of stopping. However, this “unintended accelelarion” was happening far more often with elderly drivers than with other drivers, which suggested that the problem was caused by the driver hitting the wrong pedal, and not by some defect in the car. In February 2011, a study by NHTSA and NAA  proved that Toyota was innocent. The study can be read here. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said, “The verdict is in. There is no electronic-based cause for unintended high-speed acceleration in Toyotas.” However, despite Toyota’s innocence, Obama fined them $1.2 billion.

In October 2013, National Review filed a Freedom of Information request on this subject, but the Obama administration illegally ignored the 20 day deadline for providing this information, and did not provide it until May 2014.

717) Union that represents 16,500 border patrol agents complained that Obama was forcing them to change the diapers of illegal aliens

722) Fraudulently declared meadow jumping mouse “endangered” in order to hurt ranchers

On May 24, 2014, Wikipedia’s article on the meadow jumping mouse stated:

The meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius) is the most widely distributed mouse in the subfamily Zapodinae. It may be found from the Atlantic coast, to the Great Plains, as far north as the arctic tree lines in Canada and Alaska, and as far south as Georgia, Alabama, Arizona, and New Mexico.

The meadow jumping mouse is currently not in any kind of danger. According to the IUCN Red list, it is widely spread, common, and not declining throughout most of its extensive range. It is also present in many protected areas, and so does not have any major threats of it becoming an endangered species.

However, on July 3, 2014, the Daily Caller reported:

Feds Declare Mouse Endangered, Family Might Lose Everything

A family’s livestock enterprise in New Mexico is in danger of being completely shut down now that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has declared the meadow jumping mouse to be an endangered species…

The new regulations came into effect from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last month, and as a result, the U.S. Forest Service is considering installing 8-foot high fences to protect the mouse, which would permanently prevent the Lucero family’s livestock from grazing.

The family is already in possession of grazing permits from the federal government, but the permits become irrelevant in the event that a new species is declared endangered.

The Lucero family has had their livestock graze on the land in the Santa Fe National Forest for more than a century, starting first with sheep, but then switching to cattle in the 1920s.

Obama’s declaration of this animal as being “endangered” is contrary to all scientific evidence, and is just a cover for his war on ranchers.

726) “Thugs Run L.A. Classrooms, Thanks To Obama Suspension Ban”

In July 2014, Investor’s Daily reported:

Thugs Run L.A. Classrooms, Thanks To Obama Suspension Ban

As we predicted, the Obama regime’s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms.

In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate.

Last year, Los Angeles schools became the first in the state to ban “willful defiance” as grounds for suspension. As a result, their overall suspension rate dropped to 1.5% from 8% in 2008.

Offenders just aren’t being sent home at the same rate they were before the federal order. And they’re getting younger and bolder.

“Last week I was terrified and bullied by a fourth-grade student,” a teacher at an urban L.A. school said. “The black student told me to ‘back off, bitch.’ I told him to go to the office and he said, ‘No, bitch, and you and no one can make me.'”

Complained another LAUSD teacher:

“Kids aren’t even suspended for fights or drugs.”

Even threats against teachers are ignored, as administrators’ hands are tied by the new policy. Knowing there won’t be consequences, thugs can control the classroom, disrupting lessons for other kids, including minorities, who want to learn.

“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives”

President Obama took the following oath at both of his inaugurations:

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

You can see him taking the oath here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvEANPi1c6k

In addition, Obama has a Harvard Law degree.

Furthermore, Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years.

However, in August 2014, Associated Press reported:

“Aiming to sidestep a logjam in Congress, the Obama administration is looking for steps it could take on its own to prevent American companies from reincorporating overseas to shirk U.S. taxes, officials said Tuesday.”

814) “US inspectors general say gov’t has blocked access”

In August 2014, Associated Press reported:

US inspectors general say gov’t has blocked access

Independent watchdogs of dozens of federal agencies decried on Tuesday what they said were Obama administration efforts to delay or stall their investigations.

A letter to Congress from a broad cross-section of inspectors general cites specific instances in which watchdogs for the Justice Department, Environmental Protection Agency and the Peace Corps said they were denied timely access to documents and other information while doing their investigations. The letter says other inspectors general have faced similar obstacles, and that congressional action may be needed to ensure cooperation from government agencies.

815) Lied about the reason U.S. corporations incorporate overseas

In August 2014, Obama said the reason U.S. corporations incorporate overseas is that

“They’re basically renouncing their citizenship and declaring they’re based somewhere else, just to avoid paying their fair share.”

Despite Obama’s claim, these corporations are still paying taxes to the U.S. government on the profits that they earn in the U.S. The only tax they are avoiding is the U.S. tax on the profits that they earn overseas. But the U.S. is the only major country in the world that taxes overseas profits.

816) Helped one corporation use a certain tax loophole, but later criticized other corporations for using the exact same tax loophole

In 2009, the Obama administration helped Delphi, a U.S. corporation, reduce its taxes by declaring it to be a British company. However, in 2014, Obama criticized other U.S. corporations for doing the exact same thing.

817) Said we should pass an equal pay law, while ignoring the fact that such a law has already been in place since 1963

In August 2014, Obama said we should pass a law that requires men and women to be paid the same for doing the same work. However, such a law has already been in place since 1963.

818) Bombed Iraq in August 2014, even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011

820) Lied about which President removed U.S. troops from Iraq

Obama repeatedly gave himself credit for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq that happened in late 2011. However, in August 2014, he blamed the troop withdrawal on Bush. I’m not going to say which of Obama’s two statements is true, and which is a lie. But one of them must be a lie.

821) Illegally tried to block a Freedom of Information release of the video that shows Michael Brown committing theft and assault

On August 15, 2014, NRP reported:

[Ferguson Police Chief Thomas] Jackson said he had gotten numerous Freedom of Information Act requests from the media to release the video. “I had to release it,” he said.

“I had been sitting on it and too many people put in FOIA requests for it and I had to release it,” he said.

On August 16, 2014, CBS News reported:

Feds opposed releasing Ferguson robbery video

Federal authorities opposed Friday’s release of a surveillance video showing a man resembling Michael Brown committing a robbery at a convenience store in Ferguson, Mo., CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.

The Justice Department asked Ferguson police not to release the video, believing that it would roil the community further, and were able to successfully prevent the video from being released Thursday, the U.S. law enforcement official said.

Friday’s release occurred over the objection of federal authorities, the official said.

Here is the video that Obama illegally tried to prevent people from seeing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2z5-H8NSGA

822) Obama sued Bank of America because it did exactly what he had told it to do. Obama then gave some of the settlement money to left wing groups that he had worked for.

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.”

However, in August 2014, it was reported that the Obama administration had sued Bank of America for giving mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back, and the bank had agreed to pay $16.6 billion in order to avoid further prosecution from the federal government.

In August 2014, it was reported that Obama had given some of the settlement money from Bank of America to left wing organizations including the National Council of La Raza, Operation Hope, and National Community Reinvestment Coalition. These groups used to be known, collectively, as ACORN. In the past, these organizations had pressured banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back.

In addition, Obama had worked with ACORN in the past. Obama had represented them in a lawsuit where they tried to get Illinois to adopt a “motor-voter” law. On top of that, Obama had taught leadership training sessions for ACORN. Also, Obama had worked as an organizer for Project Vote, an ACORN offshoot. 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. Finally, 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.

829) Obama’s so-called “recovery” actually hurt blacks, women, and the poor

In August 2014, the Wall St. Journal wrote:

If the Obama recovery had been as strong as the average of the previous 10 postwar recoveries, 13.9 million more Americans would be working today and the average real per capita income of every man, woman and child in America would be $6,308 higher.

But the real scorecard on the Senate Democrats elected in 2008 is in the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey data. While all Democrats claimed to be champions of the middle class and defenders of minorities and women, census data show how their program did not live up to their campaign promises.

Since the Senate Democratic Class of 2008 took control, the average real income of the poorest one-fifth of American families has declined every year, falling to $15,534 in 2012 from $16,962 in 2008 (the 2013 data will be released Sept. 16). The average real income of the lowest quintile of Americans is now below the level it was in 1968, the year when the War on Poverty began its spending surge.

The next-highest income quintile, often referred to as the working class, has also experienced a continuous decline in real income since January 2009. The average income of these Americans has fallen 6.5% and is now $1,182 lower than it was when President Reagan left office.

The third quintile—America’s middle class—has seen its average income decline to $62,464 from $65,672. More than half of this decline has occurred since the recovery officially began in the second quarter of 2009.

Under the Obama administration, the median income of women has fallen more during the recovery than it did during the recession, an unprecedented economic failure in postwar America.

The real median income of African-American households has fallen by 9.5%, more than any other major census classification.

830) Obama criticized local police for using the military gear that he had given them

838) Exempted his own children from the very same food rules that he forced everyone else’s children to follow

845) Falsely said it was “unlikely” that anyone from Africa with Ebola would fly to the U.S. because the “necessary precautions” were being taken

On September 16, 2014, Obama said:

“First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home.”

However, on September 19, 2014, just three days after Obama made the above statement, the only thing that Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan had to do to get past these “necessary precautions,” was to lie on an airport questionnaire. After Duncan lied, he was allowed to fly from Liberia to Dallas, Texas.

846) Refused to answer reporter’s question about whether or not the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. was a U.S. citizen

On September 30, 2014, during a press conference, the Obama administration refused to answer a reporter’s question about whether or not an Ebola patient who traveled from Liberia to Dallas, Texas, was a U.S. citizen.

885) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said Obamacare was passed due to “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter”

In October 2013, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said:

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass….Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

The article did not disclose this relationship to readers.

895) In Obama’s own words, his actions on illegal aliens mean that he is “ignoring the law”

In September 2013, Obama said that if he allowed illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. without approval from Congress, it would mean that

“… I’ll be ignoring the law…”

However, in November 2014, Obama said he would allow up to five million illegal aliens to stay in the U.S., even though he did not have approval from Congress.

896) In Obama’s own words, he has declared himself to be “emperor of the United States”

In February 2013, when Obama was talking about what he could and couldn’t do for illegal aliens when Congress was not cooperating with him, he said:

“This is something that I have struggled with throughout my presidency… The problem is, is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

However, in November 2014, Obama said he would allow up to five million illegal aliens to stay in the U.S., even though he did not have approval from Congress.

897) Falsely said “All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”

In Obama’s November 2014 immigration reform speech, he said:

“All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”

However, Associated Press responded with the following:

“He’s saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-paying jobs.”

898) Falsely said “…  this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border.”

In Obama’s November 2014 immigration reform speech, he said:

“… this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border.”

However, Associated Press responded with the following:

“… it was more than a ‘brief spike.’ The number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border has been on the rise since the 2011 budget year. That year about 16,000 children were found crossing the border alone. In 2012, the Border Patrol reported more than 24,000 children, followed by more than 38,800 in 2013. In the last budget year, more than 68,361 children were apprehended.”

899) Falsely said “… what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.”

In 2008, Obama said:

“… what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I’m promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible.”

He broke that promise.

900) Obama used the Department of Homeland Security to buy thousands of pairs of underwear for illegal aliens, even though none of them were actually terrorists

Although the Department of Homeland Security was created to protect the U.S. from terrorism, Obama used it to purchase thousands of pairs of underwear for illegal aliens, none of whom were terrorists. This included 4,800 in size 2X-Large, 4,800 3X-Large  4,800 4X-Large,  3,600 5X-Large, and 2,400 in size 6X-Large, which are for men who weigh as much as 500 pounds.

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 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.

935) Harvard faculty members who supported the passage of Obamacare later complained that they had to pay for it

In January 2015, the New York Times reported:

For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.

Members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the heart of the 378-year-old university, voted overwhelmingly in November to oppose changes that would require them and thousands of other Harvard employees to pay more for health care. The university says the increases are in part a result of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, which many Harvard professors championed.

The faculty vote came too late to stop the cost increases from taking effect this month, and the anger on campus remains focused on questions that are agitating many workplaces: How should the burden of health costs be shared by employers and employees? If employees have to bear more of the cost, will they skimp on medically necessary care, curtail the use of less valuable services, or both?

In Harvard’s health care enrollment guide for 2015, the university said it “must respond to the national trend of rising health care costs, including some driven by health care reform,” in the form of the Affordable Care Act. The guide said that Harvard faced “added costs” because of provisions in the health care law that extend coverage for children up to age 26, offer free preventive services like mammograms and colonoscopies and, starting in 2018, add a tax on high-cost insurance, known as the Cadillac tax.

Richard F. Thomas, a Harvard professor of classics and one of the world’s leading authorities on Virgil, called the changes “deplorable, deeply regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university.”

Mary D. Lewis, a professor who specializes in the history of modern France and has led opposition to the benefit changes, said they were tantamount to a pay cut. “Moreover,” she said, “this pay cut will be timed to come at precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges of being a new parent.”

Jerry R. Green, a professor of economics and a former provost who has been on the Harvard faculty for more than four decades, said the new out-of-pocket costs could lead people to defer medical care or diagnostic tests, causing more serious illnesses and costly complications in the future.

“It’s equivalent to taxing the sick,” Professor Green said. “I don’t think there’s any government in the world that would tax the sick.”

“It seems that Harvard is trying to save money by shifting costs to sick people,” said Mary C. Waters, a professor of sociology. “I don’t understand why a university with Harvard’s incredible resources would do this. What is the crisis?”

936) Nominated someone for attorney general who had illegally used secret sentencing procedures to reward criminals for their cooperation

In January 2015, it was reported that Loretta Lynch, Obama’s nominee for attorney general, had illegally used secret sentencing procedures to reward criminals for their cooperation.

937) Although Obama said Obamacare would reduce the number of E.R. visits, a Harvard study showed there was actually an increase

947) Obama said that it’s wrong to criticize a man who raped a child

When Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, was 53 years old, he raped a girl who was either nine or ten years old at the time.

In September 2012, Obama said:

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

You can see him saying it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPKf5IUGn_Y

948) Falsely said “My job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives”

In 2009, Obama said:

“My job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives.”

However, there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution which says that that is part of the President’s job.

949) Although 44% of college graduates were already working at jobs that did not require a college degree, Obama proposed that even more people go to college

In January 2015, Obama proposed that anyone with a C+ average should get two years of free tuition at community college. However, in June 2013, 44% of college graduates were already working at jobs that did not require a college degree.

951) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can’t have something they want.”

In October 2009, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber wrote:

“The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can’t have something they want.”

Although liberals ignored Gruber’s remark, two months earlier, in August 2009, they were very critical of Sarah Palin’s claim that Obamacare would result in “death panels.”

I don’t know if Palin’s claim about “death panels” is true or false. But I do know that the liberals who criticized Palin’s statement while ignoring Gruber’s statement were being hypocritical.

952) Announced plans to illegally create a new retirement plan

In January 2014, Obama announced that he would order the Treasury to create a new retirement plan. Because Obama was planning to do this without approval from Congress, his plan was illegal.

955) Obamacare illegally gave the President powers that were not permitted by the Constitution

In December 2014, the American Spectator wrote:

The Constitution does not permit Congress to cede its legislative powers to any other branch of the government. Yet, this is precisely what the Democrats did in the case of IPAB. Prior to the passage of Obamacare only Congress had the power to make changes to Medicare’s payment rates or coverage. But PPACA transferred that power to IPAB, an Executive branch body whose members will be appointed by the President.

956) Instead of prosecuting Alissa Starzak for stealing classified documents from the CIA, Obama nominated her to be the U.S. Army’s top lawyer

The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government officials.

The woman, Estefanía Isaías, had been barred from coming to the United States after being caught fraudulently obtaining visas for her maids. But the ban was lifted at the request of the State Department under former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton so that Ms. Isaías could work for an Obama fund-raiser with close ties to the administration.

964) Hired a convicted thief to work at HUD, who then went on to steal more than $800,000 of taxpayers’ money

After Brian Thompson was convicted of theft, HUD hired him as a GS-13 loan guarantee specialist, for an annual salary of nearly $90,000. He then went on to embezzle more than $800,000 of taxpayers’ money. The Obama administration said that criminal background checks were a form of “race discrimination.”

967) Although carbon dioxide is the bottom of the food chain, John Holdren, Obama’s science adviser, said we should try to get its emissions “close to zero by 2100”

Carbon dioxide is the bottom of the food chain. All plants and algae need to consume it in order to live. Every living person and animal emits it. However, in December 2014, John Holdren, Obama’s science adviser, said we should try to get carbon dioxide emissions “close to zero by 2100.”

968) Used taxpayers’ money to fund a “blacks only” meeting for the All African People’s Revolutionary Party

969) Lied about the rate of economic growth

Although the economic growth rate during the third quarter of 2014 was 2.7%, the Obama administration falsely claimed that it was 5.0%.

970) Eric Schultz, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary, falsely said “We don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations”

In May 2014, Obama released five “high risk” Taliban terrorists in exchange for U.S. military deserter Bowe Bergdahl. However, in January 2015, Eric Schultz, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary, said, “We don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations.”

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.

“… 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.

981) Obamacare customer service telephone number connected an Obamacare customer to “someone reading off a script in the Philippines”

In November 2014, a New York Times article on Obamacare said that Health Republic Insurance was

… a new co-op plan created under the law, for people who lived in the area.

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

Compounding the problem is the lack of basic information to shop effectively. When Andrea Greenberg, a New York lawyer, called the help line of Health Republic to clarify the difference between two plans, she found herself speaking to someone reading off a script in the Philippines. “I was really outraged,” she said. “This is an important decision with potentially dire consequences. It’s not like you’re choosing a sweater.”

982) During the first year that Obamacare was in effect, the percentage of U.S. citizens who said they had trouble affording health care increased from 36% to 46%

In February 2015, the New York Times wrote:

A recent New York Times/CBS poll found that 46 percent of Americans said they had trouble affording health care, up 10 percentage points in just one year.

983) A year after Obamacare took effect, the New York Times wrote, “For still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that they just avoid seeing doctors”

A February 2015 New York Times article on Obamacare said:

“For still others, the new fees are so confusing and unsupportable that they just avoid seeing doctors.”

984) Although Obamacare gives employers an incentive to reduce their employees’ hours, Obama criticized companies that actually responded to this incentive

Because Obamacare’s employer mandate only applies to employees who work 30 or more hours per week, it gives employers an incentive to reduce their employees’ hours to 29 hours per week.

In July 2013, the New York Times reported that Obamacare

“… sharply penalizes full-time employment in favor of part-time employment.”

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.”

Although it was Obama himself who signed Obamacare into law in March 2010, in February 2015 Obama said:

“… when I hear large corporations that make billions of dollars in profits trying to blame our interest in providing health insurance as an excuse for cutting back workers’ wages, shame on them.”

985) Falsely said, “There is no reason for an employer who is not currently providing health care to their workers to discourage them from either getting health insurance on the job or being able to avail themselves of the Affordable Care Act.”

In February 2015, Obama said:

“There is no reason for an employer who is not currently providing health care to their workers to discourage them from either getting health insurance on the job or being able to avail themselves of the Affordable Care Act.”

However, in the same article, Reuters explained that there is indeed such a reason:

“The Affordable Care Act requires companies with more than 50 employees to pay for health insurance for people who work 30 hours a week or more. Reuters has reported that some businesses are keeping staffing numbers below 50 or cutting the work week to less than 30 hours to avoid providing employee health insurance.”

986) In February 2015, Democrats who voted for Obamacare complained that people actually had to pay for it

In February 2015, Associated Press reported:

Democrats seek relief from health law penalties

Senior Democrats seek sign-up extension for people facing health law penalties

Three senior House members told The Associated Press that they plan to strongly urge the administration to grant a special sign-up opportunity for uninsured taxpayers who will be facing fines under the law for the first time this year.

The three are Michigan’s Sander Levin, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, and Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, and Lloyd Doggett of Texas. All worked to help steer Obama’s law through rancorous congressional debates from 2009-2010.

“Open enrollment period ended before many Americans filed their taxes,” the three lawmakers said in a statement. “Without a special enrollment period, many people (who will be paying fines) will not have another opportunity to get health coverage this year.

“A special enrollment period will not only help many Americans avoid making an even larger payment next year, but, more importantly, it will help them gain quality health insurance for 2015,” the lawmakers added.

987) “Top teacher” said she resigned because of Obama’s Common Core and Obama’s continuation of Bush’s No Child Left Behind

In February 2015, Stacie Starr, winner of the 2014 “Top Teacher” award by “Live with Kelly and Michael,” said that she was resigning because of Obama’s Common Core and Obama’s continuation of Bush’s No Child Left Behind. She did not quit teaching per se. Instead, she resigned her official teaching position, and said she would be focusing her efforts on alternative systems of education that were not controlled by the federal bureaucracy.

988) Gave out even more illegal exemptions to Obamacare

In February 2015, Obama gave out even more exemptions to Obamacare. Because he did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

989) Sent false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees

In February 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had sent false tax information to 800,000 Obamacare enrollees.

990) Falsely said that “economic grievances” were a cause of terrorism

In February 2015, Obama said that “economic grievances” were a contributing factor to terrorism. However, in the real world, many terrorists come from middle class and wealthy backgrounds.

991) Illegally continued part of his illegal amnesty program even after a federal judge blocked it

In February 2015, the Obama administration continued part of its illegal amnesty program even after a federal judge blocked it.

992) Department of Energy spent taxpayers’ money on a casino night, a Super Bowl party, a golf tournament, a banquet on a dinner cruise boat, and dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame

Between April 2013 and September 2014, the Department of Energy spent taxpayers’ money on a casino night, a Super Bowl party, a golf tournament, a banquet on a dinner cruise boat, and a dinner at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

993) Advised border patrol agents to release drunk drivers

In February 2015, the Obama administration advised border patrol agents to release drunk drivers.

994) Made it possible for illegal aliens to collect back tax refunds even if they had never actually paid any taxes

In February 2015, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that Obama’s amnesty program for illegal aliens made it possible form them to collect back tax refunds even if they had never actually paid any taxes.

995) After an Islamic terrorist who murdered four Jews at a kosher supermarket in France said he had specifically targeted them because they were Jewish, Obama falsely said the attack was “random”

In January 2015, an Islamic terrorist named Ahmedy Coulibaly murdered four Jews at Hyper Cacher, a kosher supermarket in France.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

Coulibaly called a French TV station from the kosher supermarket and said he was an al-Qaida terrorist and that he chose the kosher supermarket because he wanted to kill Jews.

However, Obama said the murders were “random.”

996) Broke his promise to release a 28 page document which allegedly proved that the Saudi Arabian government had supported the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks

In September 2014, it was reported that Obama had broken his promise to release a 28 page document which allegedly proved that the Saudi Arabian government had supported the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

997) Pressured colleges to adopt sexual harassment rules that were so bad that 28 Harvard Law School professors signed a letter of protest

In February 2015, it was reported that the Department of Education had pressured colleges to adopt sexual harassment rules that were so bad that 28 Harvard Law School professors signed a letter which criticized the rules for being “inconsistent with many of the most basic principles we teach” and for giving accused people “the absence of any adequate opportunity to confront witnesses and present a defense.” The complete text of the letter can be read here.

998) Illegally refused to provide annual reports on ways to reduce the complexity of the tax code

999) Illegally implemented net neutrality rules

In February 2015, the Obama administration implemented net neutrality rules. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

1,000) Falsely said there were “nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country”

In June 2009, Obama said there were

“nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country”

However, in June 2009, PolitiFact wrote:

We are using numbers from the CIA Online World Factbook, a highly regarded government source for global statistics. It’s updated twice a month, and we’re relying on the latest version. By the World Factbook’s count, Muslims in the United States make up about 0.6 percent of the population. That’s around 1.8 million.

    Hussein Obama the Muslim inept president as a well placed used Muslim condom conduit and condiment, whether you agree he is or not, they and he will never assimilate, though they insist you will assimilate to Islam or die!

    Which of these two calls scares you the most today; Bonsai, Bonsai or Allah Ackbar, Allah Ackbar? When both are calls of your imminent death!
    Please note: Japans total population in the 1940s was 73 million, plus or less thousands, against the Muslim world population that is recorded at over 2 billion today and counting.

    How which of these two; Japan/Islam give the greater danger and threat to your current life style as you want and know it to be?

    Last question! Will you surrender to Muslim Law and their style of life or become beheaded? For the Muslim/Islam way offers little in exchange or any difference to all in the name of Islam and ISIS/ISIL as praised, armed and protected by Hussein Obama’s lie after lie.

    This once great Christian nation of the United States of America voted for Hussein Obama twice, a true Muslim and weeded plant! That demanded gay rights of marriage, abortion on demand, paid for by Christian Tax Dollars, to become law; which the Muslim/Islam world strictly forbids, to usher in Muslim/Islam law.

    Fully coerced, you have heard the saying Divide and Conquer; We Shall Overcome or is it simply Systematic Simpatico Indulgence to some demonic democratic freaks of nature gone wild that vote and will let them behead you at will and rob you!

    Before you vote, the right way in 2016 the conservative Republican way, even if it takes a Third Party to correct it, please be a victim no more!
