Items 501 through 1,000 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/obama-part-2/

Below are items 1,001 through 1,342:

1,001) Held a fundraiser in the living room of terrorist bomber and communist Bill Ayers

In 1969, a guy named Bill Ayers co-founded a terrorist organization called Weather Underground, whose founding document called for “world communism.”

In 1969, Ayers set off a bomb in Chicago at a statue that was dedicated to the city’s police. At the time of the explosion, no one was close enough to the statue to be killed. However, the explosion was so powerful that it broke almost 100 windows.

On March 6, 1970, three members of Weather Underground, including Diana Oughton (Ayers’s girlfriend) and Terry Robbins (Ayers’s close friend), were killed when they accidentally, prematurely set off a bomb which they were in the process of building, in their townhouse in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. The explosion was so powerful that it destroyed the entire four-story townhouse.

In 1970, Ayers bombed the headquarters of the New York City Police Department.

In 1971, Ayers bombed the United States Capitol building.

In 1972, Ayers bombed the Pentagon.

Although charges were filed against Ayers for these bombings, the charges were later dropped because law enforcement agents had conducted wiretaps and property searches without warrants.

In 1995, when Obama was running for state senator in Illinois, Obama held a fundraiser in the living room of Bill Ayers’s home.

1,002) After Eric Holder participated in a five day takeover of an abandoned ROTC headquarters at Columbia University, Obama hired him to be the country’s highest ranking law enforcement official

In 1970, Eric Holder participated in a five day takeover of an abandoned ROTC headquarters at Columbia University.

Afterward, Obama hired Holder to be Attorney General.

1,003) Used taxpayers’ money to refurbish Muslim mosques in other countries

In July 2011, it was reported that the Obama administration had used taxpayers’ money to refurbish Muslim mosques in other countries.

1,004) After Hillary Clinton stole $28,500 of furniture from the White House, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In February 2001, it was reported that Hillary Clinton had stolen $28,500 of furniture from the White House.

Afterward, Obama hired Clinton to be Secretary of State.

1,005) After Hillary Clinton cheated on her taxes, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In 1980, Hillary Clinton avoided reporting $6,498 of income from commodities trading on her income tax form.

Afterward, Obama hired Clinton to be Secretary of State.

1,006) In her own words, Hillary Clinton, Obama’s Secretary of State, said that her own use of a private email account for official government business had “shredded” the U.S. Constitution

In 2007, when Bush was President, Hillary Clinton said that the use of private email accounts by members of the Bush administration “shredded” the U.S. Constitution.

However, in March 2015, it was reported that when Clinton had been Obama’s Secretary of State, she herself had used a private email account to conduct official government businesses. Clinton’s emails were not archived in official government records, even though such archiving is required by federal law. The New York Times reported

Mrs. Clinton’s exclusive use of personal email for her government business is unusual for a high-level official, archive experts have said. Federal regulations, since 2009, have required that all emails be preserved as part of an agency’s record-keeping system. In Mrs. Clinton’s case, her emails were kept on her personal account and her staff took no steps to have them preserved as part of State Department record.

By using a private email account, Clinton was able to thwart record requests that had been made by Congressional investigators in 2012 regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

In 2013, Clinton used her private email account to thwart a Freedom of Information request by Nitasha Tiku, a reporter for Gawker, regarding information about Sidney Blumenthal.

The New York Times reported that Clinton’s use of the private email account

protected a significant amount of her correspondence from the eyes of investigators and the public

1,007) Falsely said he learned about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports”

In March 2015, Obama said he had first learned about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account

“the same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”

However, the White House had actually been informed about Clinton’s use of a private email account in August 2014.

In addition, Obama himself had emailed Clinton at her private email account.

1,008) The “most transparent administration in history” illegally ignored Freedom of Information requests from Associated Press regarding information on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

In March 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally ignored Freedom of Information requests from Associated Press regarding information on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

1,009) Gave H-1B visas to Southern California Edison so it could fire its American employees and replace them with foreign workers – the company even had the nerve to order the American employees to train their foreign replacements

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

1,010) Loretta Lynch, Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, falsely said that illegal aliens have a “right” to work in the U.S.

Even though it is illegal for U.S. employers to hire illegal aliens, in January 2015 Loretta Lynch, Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, said:

“I believe that the right and obligation to work is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here.”

1,011) Proposed an illegal retroactive tax on corporate income held abroad

In March 2015, it was reported that Obama had proposed a retroactive tax on corporate income held abroad. However, retroactive taxes are illegal, as the U.S. Constitution prohibits the federal government from passing ex post facto laws.

1,012) Even though it would be illegal, Josh Earnest, Obama’s Press Secretary, said Obama was “very interested” in raising taxes without approval from Congress

Even though it would be illegal, in March 2015 Josh Earnest, Obama’s Press Secretary, said Obama was “very interested” in raising taxes without approval from Congress.

1,013) Spent taxpayers’ money to pay government employees to try to find out how a picture of one of his daughters got on the internet

In January 2015, it was reported that Obama had spent taxpayers’ money to pay government employees to try to find out how a picture of one of his  daughters got on the internet.

1,014) Falsely said the Ferguson, Missouri police department was racist because it stopped black drivers at a higher rate than white drivers, which contradicted a report by Obama’s own administration which said the reason black drivers were stopped more often than white drivers was because black drivers were more likely to break the traffic laws

In March 2015, Attorney General Eric Holder said the police in Ferguson, Missouri were racist because they stopped black drivers at a higher rate than white drivers.

However, a 2013 report by Obama’s own administration said:

Seat-belt usage is chronically lower among blacks. If a law enforcement agency aggressively enforces violations, police will stop more black drivers.

In addition, in March 2015, Investor’s Business Daily wrote:

… federal data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that blacks violate traffic laws at higher rates than whites in every offense, including driving with an invalid license.

Also, in March 2015, the New York Post – citing statistics from the federal government – wrote:

… blacks die in car accidents at a rate about twice their share of car owners.

1,015) Falsely said the proposed Keystone XL pipeline “bypasses the United States”

In February 2015, Obama said:

“I’ve already said I’m happy to look at how we can increase pipeline production for U.S. oil, but Keystone is for Canadian oil to send that down to the Gulf. It bypasses the United States and is estimated to create a little over 250, maybe 300 permanent jobs. We should be focusing more broadly on American infrastructure for American jobs and American producers, and that’s something that we very much support.”

Afterward, the Washington Post responded with:

The crude oil would travel to the Gulf Coast, where it would be refined into products such as motor gasoline and diesel fuel (known as a distillate fuel in the trade). Current trends suggest that only about half of that refined product would be exported, and it could easily be lower.

A report released in February by IHS Energy, which consults for energy companies, concluded that “Canadian crude making its way to the USGC [Gulf Coast] will likely be refined there, and most of the refined products are likely to be consumed in the United States.” It added that “for Gulf refineries, heavy bitumen blends from the oil sands are an attractive substitute for declining offshore heavy crude supply from Latin America.” It concluded that 70 percent of the refined product would be consumed in the United States.

Enviromentalists dismiss IHS as a biased source, but the analysis mirrors the conclusions of the State Department’s final environmental impact statement on the Keystone XL project. This is what is especially strange about Obama’s remarks, as he appears to be purposely ignoring the findings of the lead Cabinet agency on the issue.

1,016) Proposed a new rule that would falsely define ditches, drains, seasonal puddle-like depressions, intermittent streams, and ponds as “navigable waters”

In February 2015, the EPA proposed a new rule that would falsely define ditches, drains, seasonal puddle-like depressions, intermittent streams, and ponds as “navigable waters.”

1,017) “Why This Liberal No Longer Supports Universal Health Care: An Open Letter to President Obama”

Melissa Klein lives in San Francisco, California. In February 2015, she wrote:

Why This Liberal No Longer Supports Universal Health Care: An Open Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama,

I voted for you in both elections. I’m proud to call you our president. I was a staunch supporter of universal health care. Thank you for following through on your campaign promise. That you did so IS significant.

But I have to say, you’ve let us down in a big way. This health care system blows.

For the past few weeks I’ve been dealing with this 1095-A issue. You see, I never received it and as you know I need it to file my taxes. Being a law abiding citizen and all, I typically like to file my taxes on time.

I called Covered California in January and was assured I’d get it soon. But alas, it never arrived. So, I spent my entire afternoon (and part of yesterday afternoon), on hold with different folks at Kaiser and Covered California.

At first I wasn’t worried. I mean, a) I’m insured. b) I have several letters from Covered California congratulating me on being insured. c) I have emails from Kaiser and Covered California confirming payment for insurance. d) I have my credit card bill that also shows that I, in fact, paid for insurance. And e) I’m insured!!!

My second interaction with Covered California on this issue was both straightforward and unhelpful.

“If you didn’t receive a 1095-A you have to fill out a dispute form and FAX it to us.”

I respond, “Ok, but I’m not disputing anything. I’m asking for the form you’re supposed to have sent me.”

Alas, my logic seems illogical to the person on the helpline and she tells me that her hands are tied and that nothing can be done until I submit a dispute form.

I sheepishly ask, “Can I email it to you?”

“No, but you can fax it.”

Of course I can FAX it. Cuz, we’re in 2015. Who doesn’t fax stuff?

Miraculously, I manage to find a fax machine and send over my dispute form.

I call back today to make sure that they received my fax.

After being on hold for 30 minutes I’m told, “We’ll let you know in 2 weeks if we received the fax. You’ll get a letter in the mail.”

So I ask again, “Can’t you just tell me over the phone?”

“Nope, ya gotta wait for the letter.”

I then ask what I think is a simple question. Shame on me. “Can you at least tell me if a 1095 was ever generated?”

This is when things turn from bad to comical.

“Ma’am, it doesn’t appear as though you’re in our system for having insurance in 2014. Are you sure you didn’t imagine signing up through our exchange?”

“I’m sorry ma’am but I think you’re mistaken. You signed up through Kaiser and Kaiser will send you the 1095.”

Getting through to Kaiser took a mere 48 minutes. But who’s counting? Once someone finally picks up I’m told, “Oh yes, I see right here, you were covered by us in 2014 through Covered California.”

“But you need to talk to them about the 1095.” Of course I do.

And so, I call Covered California back. I’m thrilled to inform them that I didn’t imagine signing up through the exchange and that Kaiser can, without a doubt, confirm that I’m covered.

I’m then told, “Ma’am, you need to submit a dispute form.”

“I’ve already done that,” I say exasperated.

“Well, they’ll figure it out within 60 days. Don’t worry you’ll still get your taxes filed in time,” The women replies matter of fact-ly.

“60 days?,” I respond again, exasperated. “Actually, if you’re telling me I’ll receive my form in 60 days I will have missed the deadline.”

“Oh. Sorry about that. You’ll have to file for an extension then. Is there anything else I can help you with?”

1,018) After Senator Hillary Clinton gave taxpayer’s money to someone who donated to her foundation, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In January 2009, the New York Times wrote:

An upstate New York developer donated $100,000 to former President Bill Clinton’s foundation in November 2004, around the same time that Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton helped secure millions of dollars in federal assistance for the businessman’s mall project.

Mrs. Clinton helped enact legislation allowing the developer, Robert J. Congel, to use tax-exempt bonds to help finance the construction of the Destiny USA entertainment and shopping complex, an expansion of the Carousel Center in Syracuse.

After Clinton gave that taxpayers’ money to someone who donated to her foundation, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,019) After Hillary Clinton falsely said she was “under sniper fire,” Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In March 2008, Senator Hillary Clinton said the following about a trip she had made to Tuzla, Bosnia, when she was first lady in 1996:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Afterward, PolitiFact wrote:

But that’s not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton’s comments, reporting that a review of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats to the First Lady.

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who covered Clinton on the Bosnia visit, wrote of her memories of the trip: “To be sure, it was not the ‘safest’ trip for a first lady to take: there were serious risks in traveling to Bosnia, even for the president’s wife under the vigilant protection of the U.S. military. It took some guts for her to go. But I don’t recall, and did not note, any close calls on this trip with sniper fire or any other dangers. “

Immediately after the speech that day, a reporter asked Clinton about remarks from others on the trip who suggested the trip was for photo opportunities rather than foreign policy and she stood by her account of sniper fire. “There was no greeting ceremony, and we basically were told to run to our cars. Now, that is what happened,” she said.

The CBS News report can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BfNqhV5hg4

After Clinton told this lie, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,020) Misquoted the Quran to give the false impression that it did not support murder

In February 2015, Investor’s Business Daily wrote:

… while hosting last week’s “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism,” Obama recited a verse from the Muslim holy book like so: “The Quran says whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.”

A beautiful passage — if only it were as he states it.

The Quranic verse the president quotes — 5:32 — actually condones killing those who “murder” Muslims, “wage war against Allah” or spread “mischief in the land.”

Mischief is defined as “treason against Allah,” and the very next verse — 5:33 — calls for guilty infidels to be beheaded. Obama glosses over all of this in his version.

Here’s the full text of the relevant verse (5:32), according to even the watered-down translation of the Quran approved and distributed by American Muslim groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Note the key section that Obama omits from his speeches:

“(I)f anyone slew a person — unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land — it would be as if he slew the whole people. And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them our Messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.”

The hammer comes down in the next verse, 5:33: “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: That is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the hereafter.”

1,021) The “most transparent administration in history” refused to say whether or not Hillary Clinton signed a form declaring that she had turned over all work related emails when she quit her job as Secretary of State

In February 2013, when Hillary Clinton quit her job as Secretary of State, she was supposed to sign a form OF-109, declaring that she had turned over all work related records, including all work related emails. It is a crime to lie on this form.

In March 2015, the Obama administration refused to say whether or not Clinton had signed this form.

1,022) After Wal-Mart board of director member Hillary Clinton refused to criticize Wal-Mart for waging war against unions, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In January 2008, ABC News reported:

Clinton Remained Silent As Wal-Mart Fought Unions

In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world’s largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers.

Wal-Mart’s anti-union efforts were headed by one of Clinton’s fellow board members, John Tate, a Wal-Mart executive vice president who also served on the board with Clinton for four of her six years.

Tate was fond of repeating, as he did at a managers meeting in 2004 after his retirement, what he said was his favorite phrase, “Labor unions are nothing but blood-sucking parasites living off the productive labor of people who work for a living.”

Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton and other company officials often recounted how they relied on Tate to lead the company’s successful anti-union efforts.

An ABC News analysis of the videotapes of at least four stockholder meetings where Clinton appeared shows she never once rose to defend the role of American labor unions.

After Clinton refused to defend unions against Wal-Mart’s attacks, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State.

1,023) The “most transparent administration in history” “set a new record again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright denying access to them”

In March 2015, Associated Press reported:

The Obama administration set a new record again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press.

1,024) Illegally ignored a Freedom of Information Act request from the ALCU regarding information about airport security

In March 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally ignored a Freedom of Information Act request from the ALCU regarding information about airport security.

1,025) One of Obama’s professors from Harvard Law School said Obama was “burning the Constitution”

In March 2015, Laurence Tribe, one of Obama’s professors from Harvard Law school, said:

“EPA possesses only the authority granted to it by Congress… Its gambit here raises serious questions under the separation of powers… because EPA is attempting to exercise lawmaking power that belongs to Congress and judicial power that belongs to the federal courts… Burning the Constitution should not become part of our national energy policy.”

1,026) The “most transparent administration in history” exempted itself from Freedom of Information regulations during the same week that was supposed to be a celebration of the Freedom of Information Act

In March 2015, U.S. News & World Report wrote:

The Obama administration announced Tuesday it will ditch regulations that subjected large portions of White House correspondence to public records requests, a decision derided by transparency advocates who wryly noted it was issued during a week celebrating open access to government.

The notice exempting the White House’s Office of Administration from the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act was contained in Tuesday’s Federal Register, reversing a three-decade-old policy during Sunshine Week, the annual celebration of the FOIA law.

Anne Weismann, interim executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), says the step “makes mockery of the administration’s commitment to transparency, especially given that it’s Sunshine Week.”

1,027) Falsely said his net neutrality plan would not allow any new taxes to be placed on the internet

Before implementing its net neutrality plan, the Obama administration said the plan did not allow for any new taxes to be placed on the internet. However, after the plan was implemented, the Obama administration said that such taxes were in fact made possible by the plan.

1,028) Obama gave the Medal of Freedom to communist Dolores Huerta, and refused to let an anti-communist hero Lech Walesa into the White House

President Obama gave Dolores Huerta the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor that can be given to a civilian. Huerta has praised Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan communist dictator who had repeatedly used the military  to seize food from private owners. Chavez also had butchers arrested, held at a military base, and strip searched for running out of beef. In addition, he shut down a TV station that criticized him. Chavez placed a “luxury tax” on toilet paper. After Chavez seized farmland from farmers, Chavez stated, “The land is not private. It is the property of the state.” Chavez has seized many supermarkets from their owners, and under government ownership, the shelves in these supermarkets are often empty. Chavez’s mismanagement of the nationalized oil industry is so severe that the country has actually had to import gasoline, despite having some of the hugest oil reserves in the world. Chavez’s takeovers have also caused severe damage to the steel industry, the cement industry, the construction industry, the telephone industry, and the electric industry. He has also caused a brain drain, with many of the most intelligent and well educated people fleeing the country.

Meanwhile, Lech Walesa was a major participant in the defeat of communism in Eastern Europe. National Review wrote:

Lech Walesa was once a trade-union activist. He was often arrested for speaking his mind against Communist oppression behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and for defying the Soviet Union. He was an electrician who, with no higher education, led one of the most profound freedom movements of the 20th century — Solidarity. He became president of Poland and swept in reforms, pushing the Soviet Union out of his homeland and moving the country toward a free-market economy and individual liberty.

But President Obama wouldn’t even let Walesa in the White House.

Obama gave the highest civilian award to someone who wants the U.S. to copy the policies of communist dictator Hugo Chavez. And at the same time, Obama refused to let an anti-communist hero into the White House.

1,029) Invited illegal aliens, who had previously been deported, to return to the U.S.

In February 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had invited illegal aliens, who had previously been deported, to return to the U.S.

1,030) After Obama had been given multiple intelligence briefings about the threat of ISIS,  he dismissed the threat by referring to them as a “jayvee team.” However, he later claimed that he had not specifically referred to ISIS as a “jayvee team.”

After Obama had been given multiple intelligence briefings about the threat of ISIS, he dismissed the threat by referring to them as a “jayvee team.” However, he later said that he had not specifically referred to ISIS as a “jayvee team.”

1,031) Allowed recipients of “stimulus” spending to violate labor laws and tax laws by illegally classifying their employees as independent contractors

In September 2014, it was reported that Obama had allowed recipients of “stimulus” spending to violate labor laws and tax laws by illegally classifying their employees as independent contractors.

1,032) “Despite Obama’s pledge to curb it, NSA mass surveillance wins rubber stamp”

In September 2014, National Journal wrote:

Despite Obama’s pledge to curb it, NSA mass surveillance wins rubber stamp

Mass surveillance just earned another 90-day blank check, nine months after President Obama promised to rein in the NSA’s spying powers.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court approved the Justice Department’s request for another 90-day extension of the National Security Agency’s controversial mass-surveillance program, exposed publicly last summer by Edward Snowden and authorized under Section 215 of the post-9/11 Patriot Act.

The extension marks the third of its kind since President Obama pledged in January to reform how the NSA spies on Americans

1,033) “Reporters say White House sometimes demands changes to press-pool reports”

In September 2014, the Washington Post reported:

Reporters say White House sometimes demands changes to press-pool reports

White House press-pool reports are supposed to be the news media’s eyes and ears on the president, an independent chronicle of his public activities. They are written by reporters for other reporters, who incorporate them into news articles about President Obama almost every day.

Sometimes, however, the White House plays an unseen role in shaping the story.

Journalists who cover the White House say Obama’s press aides have demanded — and received — changes in press-pool reports before the reports have been disseminated to other journalists. They say the White House has used its unusual role as the distributor of the reports as leverage to steer coverage in a more favorable direction.

The disputed episodes involve mostly trivial issues and minor matters of fact. But that the White House has become involved at all represents a troubling trend for journalists and has prompted their main representative, the White House Correspondents’ Association, to consider revising its approach to pool reporting.

1,034) Obama created an “enemies list” which consisted of law abiding U.S. citizens who made large donations to Romney’s campaign. Obama then used the government to harass one of the people on this list.

In April 2012, the Wall St. Journal wrote:

The President Has a List

Barack Obama attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney’s campaign.

Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney.

Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name…  shames you for “betting against America,” and accuses you of having a “less-than-reputable” record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.

Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled “Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney’s donors.” In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having “less-than-reputable records,” the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that “quite a few” have also been “on the wrong side of the law” and profiting at “the expense of so many Americans.”

These are wealthy individuals, to be sure, but private citizens nonetheless. Not one holds elected office. Not one is a criminal.

The real crime of the men, as the website tacitly acknowledges, is that they have given money to Mr. Romney.

In July 2012, the Wall St. Journal wrote:

Obama’s Enemies List—Part II

First an Obama campaign website called out Romney donor Frank Vandersloot. Next the IRS moved to audit him—and so did the Labor Department.

Mr. VanderSloot has been targeted by the federal government. In a letter dated June 21, he was informed that his tax records had been “selected for examination” by the Internal Revenue Service.

Two weeks after receiving the IRS letter, Mr. VanderSloot received another—this one from the Department of Labor.

The ranch was fined $8,400, mainly for too many “flies” and for “grease build-up” on the stove. God forbid a cattle ranch home has flies.

1,035) Prevented the residents of Mandeville Canyon, California, from traveling so he could have a fundraiser

In October 2014, the New York Times wrote:

Obama Visit Fuels a Paltrow Neighborhood Feud

As gossip websites buzzed about Gwyneth Paltrow and President Obama — her “you’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly” is already being mocked unmercifully — her Los Angeles neighbors lashed out Friday that the Paltrow-hosted presidential fund-raiser had come at their expense.

Traffic stood still, children were stranded at school, residents could not leave their own driveways. That’s not the way life is supposed to be lived in Mandeville Canyon.

In a post on the Nextdoor Mandeville Canyon website, a private social network for area residents, Bret Lewis said that the neighborhood did not need people like Ms. Paltrow “who pay no heed to the concerns of their neighbors.”

He went on to solicit support for having Ms. Paltrow kicked out of Mandeville Canyon. “She belongs in the movie theaters, and President Obama can entertain in the Staples Center,” he said.

The anger began building outside Ms. Paltrow’s home on Thursday even while Mr. Obama mingled inside during the two-and-a-half-hour event, where it cost a $1,000 donation to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to listen to the president, and $15,000 to have dinner with him.

“I have a crying child on a soccer field!” one woman yelled as she passed by. (She was one of the few residents who were allowed to drive through.)

Mr. Lewis, in his post, said his family ended up in a restaurant “with a bunch of other displaced residents.”

“My 13-year-old daughter broke into tears, was unable to do her homework,” he said. “We finally got home at 9:00 and my daughter was up late studying, ultimately ill-prepared for her exams.”

Kim Peterson, in another post, said residents were misled about the extent of the presidential security and the impact it would have on traffic. “The biggest problem yesterday is we did not know the Canyon would be totally closed down,” she said. Otherwise, she said, “we could have all planned accordingly.”

But in Mr. Lewis’s opinion, it was “more than poor planning, it’s an abuse of power and, most importantly, unneighborly.”

1,036) Changed a government transparency website to make it very difficult to find information

Federal law requires the website usaspending.gov to provide detailed information on every federal contract over $3,000. Before March 2015, anyone could search the database by keyword. However, in March 2015, the Obama administration removed the ability to search by keyword, and made it so people had to know a contract’s federal grant identification number in order to get any information about it.

1,037) Refused to file federal charges against an EEOC employee who had stolen $60,000 in taxpayers’ money

In April 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had refused to file federal charges against an EEOC employee who had stolen $60,000 in taxpayers’ money.

1,038) Allowed the same person to simultaneously work as Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department and as a director of Hillary Clinton’s foundation for three years

Despite Clinton’s huge, ongoing, and illegal lies to the IRS, Obama refused to fire her.

1,048) The “most transparent administration in history” ignored ten consecutive questions about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation

1,049) Obama refused to fire Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after she violated the U.S. Constitution’s prohibition against government officials accepting gifts from foreign governments

Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution states:

No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.

In addition, the State Department had the following rules when Clinton was Secretary of State:

Executive branch employees are subject to restrictions on the gifts that they may accept from sources outside the Government. Unless an exception applies, executive branch employees may not accept gifts that are given because of their official positions or that come from certain interested sources (“prohibited sources”).

A prohibited source is a person (or an organization made up of such persons) who: is seeking official action by, is doing business or seeking to do business with, or is regulated by the employee’s agency, or has interests that may be substantially affected by performance or nonperformance of the employee’s official duties.

The countries of Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and Algeria all donated money to Clinton’s Foundation when Clinton was Secretary of State, at a time when these countries were attempting to conduct business with the U.S. government.

Charity Navigator, the United States’ most influential charity watchdog, said that legitimate charities spend at least 75% of their donations on their mission. However, according to Clinton’s foundation’s tax forms for the years 2009 through 2012, of the more than $500 million that was donated to the foundation, only 15%, or $75 million, was spent on programmatic grants. More than $25 million was used for travel expenses. Almost $110 million was spent on employee salaries and benefits. $290 million, almost 60 percent, was reported as “other expenses.”

Because of this, Charity Navigator put Clinton’s foundation on its “watch list.”

In addition, Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, said:

“It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons.”

Donations that foreign governments had given to Clinton’s foundation were used to pay for first class flights for Clinton, even though she was not an employee of the foundation when those flights took place. This is a clear and obvious violation of the Constitution’s prohibition against federal officials accepting money or gifts from foreign governments.

However, Obama refused to fire Clinton.

1,064) Obama forced the New York Fire Department to hire black firefighters who failed its “racist” qualification test, including a black firefighter who refused to fight fires

It is extremely easy to pass the New York Fire Department’s written test.

The test is multiple choice.

And it’s open book.

And the questions are insultingly easy – here are three examples of actual questions from the test:

A group of firefighters and their officer respond to a fifth floor apartment in a seven-story building. When they arrive at the apartment, they are told that the contents of a wastepaper basket was on fire, and the fire was extinguished prior to their arrival. The officer instructs the firefighters to ventilate, or remove, the smoke from the apartment by first using a method that will not cause damage to property. Which one of the following would be the most appropriate method for the firefighters to use to remove the smoke?

A) Breaking out all the windows with a crowbar.
B) Pulling down the ceiling with a six-foot hook.
C) Cutting through the floors with an eight-pound axe.
D) Manually opening all the windows and removing the screen.

Firefighters are required to operate on the subway tracks during emergencies in the subway stations. Which one of the following would present the greatest threat to the safety of a firefighter working on the subway tracks?

A) A subway platform crowded with people.
B) Rubbish burning in a small garbage can located on a subway platform.
C) A subway car entering a station.
D) A maintenance crew working on the track.

Firefighters conduct building inspections to locate potential life-threatening conditions in the even there is a fire. Which one of the following would the most-serious threat to life in the event of a fire?

A) An unlocked front door in a building.
B) A locked basement door in a building.
C) A car in the driveway of a building.
D) A building with a missing fire escape.

In March 2011, Obama claimed that the above questions were “racist.”

Obama then ordered the New York Fire Department to hire black firefighters who scored only 30% on that test.

That’s 30% right – not 30% wrong.

30%, on an open book, multiple choice test, with questions so easy that you’d have to be a complete idiot to get them wrong.

One of the unqualified black people that Obama pressured them to hire is a guy named Michael D. Johnson.

As of May 2015, Johnson had been working as a firefighter for the past 11 months, and was getting paid an annual salary of $76,488 by the New York Fire Department for his job as a firefighter.

However, during those 11 months, Johnson refused to actually fight fires.

And his supervisors were afraid to fire him because they didn’t want to be accused of “racism.”

1,065) Falsely accused ATMs of destroying bank teller jobs

In June 2011, Obama said:

“The other thing that happened though, this goes to the point you were just making, is there are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers… If you see it when you go to a bank you use the ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller.”

However, in February 2014, the Washington Post wrote:

“According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more bank tellers now than before ATMs. This is because the number of bank branches increased dramatically — the lower cost of operating a branch allowed banks to meet the needs of many more consumers.”

1,066) Illegally ignored a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s request to use an iPad or iPhone for official government business

In April 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally ignored a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s request to use an iPad or iPhone for official government business.

Afterward, Chong spent two days in intensive care in the hospital because he almost died of kidney failure. Despite all of this, Obama refused to fire or prosecute the DEA agents who did this.

1,068) Falsely said he never heard Reverend Jeremiah Wright say “God damn America,” or blame the U.S. government for AIDS and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks

In 2004, Obama said that he had attended Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago

“every week”

for the past 20 years.

Obama also said the church’s pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, was his

“moral compass,” “sounding board,” and “confidant.”

In March 2008, ABC News reported:

Obama’s Pastor: God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11

Sen. Barack Obama’s pastor says blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.”

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s south side, has a long history of what even Obama’s campaign aides concede is “inflammatory rhetoric,” including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own “terrorism.”

In March 2008, a USA Today article on Reverend Wright stated:

He accused the government of having “started the AIDS virus.”

In September 2008, Obama said that he had attended Reverend Wright’s church

“a couple of times a month”

and that he had not been present when Wright made those particular controversial statements.

1,072 Exposed the existence of Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program

In February 2015, the Obama administration declassified and published a top secret document from 1987 which confirmed the existence of Israel’s nuclear weapons program. However, the Obama administration did not declassify or publish other parts of the document, which pertained to Italy, France, West Germany, and other NATO countries. Prior to this, Israel had never officially confirmed or denied that it had a nuclear weapons program, and the U.S. had remained silent on the matter as a gesture of good will toward Israel.

1,073) Refused to explain how an Indiana religious freedom law that he criticized was different from an Illinois law that he had previously voted for

1,076) “Access denied: Reporters say federal officials, data increasingly off limits”

In March 2015, the Washington Post wrote:

Access denied: Reporters say federal officials, data increasingly off limits

… journalists say the lid has grown tighter under the Obama administration…

… most federal agencies get subpar grades on one measure of openness: their responsiveness to FOIA requests, which enable reporters and ordinary citizens to collect government records. Eight of the 15 agencies that get the most FOIA requests received a D grade for their compliance, according to a review this month by the nonprofit Center for Effective Government.

Two agencies — Health and Human Services and the State Department — received failing grades.

1,077) Illegally discriminated against a U.S. charity because of its pro-Israel views

Both terrorists had assault rifles and body armor, and they did manage to non-fatally shoot one innocent victim. On May 6, 2015, radical Islamic Imam Anjem Choudary went on live national television and said that Pamela Geller, the president of American Freedom Defense Initiative, deserved to be killed because of the cartoon contest. However, later that same day, Geller said that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security had not contacted her.

In addition, members of Congress who read the bill were watched over as they read it, and were forced to hand over any notes they made before leaving. Also, they were prohibited from discussing what they had read.

1,082) Falsely said there was “nothing secret” about his Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal

In May 2015, Obama said there was “nothing secret” about his Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

However, in the real world, only members of Congress were allowed to read it, and they had to attend classified briefings, and they had to leave their staff and cellphone at the door. In addition, members of Congress who read the bill were watched over as they read it, and were forced to hand over any notes they made before leaving.

1,084) Although Obama has always sent his own children to private schools, he criticized other parents for doing the exact same thing

While living in both Chicago and Washington D.C., Obama has always sent his own children to private schools.

However, in May 2015, Obama said:

“Part of what’s happened is, is that elites in a very mobile, globalized world are able to live together, away from folks who are not as wealthy, and so they feel less of a commitment to making those investments… Those who are doing better and better, more skilled, more educated, – luckier – having greater advantages are withdrawing from the commons… Kids start going to private schools, kids start working out at private clubs instead of the public parks, an anti-government ideology then disinvests from those common goods and those things that draw us together.”

1,085) After public school students posted pictures of their disgusting, Obama mandated school lunches, the Obama administration falsely said the photos were “really not” the food that was being served by public schools

In May 2015, after public school students posted pictures of their disgusting, Obama mandated school lunches, Deborah Kane, the national director of the USDA Farm to School Program, wrote:

“We have all seen those unappetizing photos of food served at school that quickly go viral… A lonesome whole wheat bun atop a sad fish fillet; a mysterious-looking meat mixture served next to an apple. It’s natural to ask, ‘Is this what they serve for lunch!?'”

“No, it’s really not.”

1,086) Illegally seized $107,000 in cash from a law abiding small business owner in North Carolina

1,090) School board members and social services employees who tried eating one of Obama’s mandated public school lunches said it consisted of undercooked chicken, a burned, hard bun, frozen strawberries, a hard, unripe pear, and expired milk

After Obama decided to take over the content of public school lunches, students complained about the disgusting, horrible food. On May 12, 2015, school board members from Kepner Middle School in Denver, Colorado, were curious to see if the students were telling the truth, so they visited the school’s cafeteria and tried the school lunch. Also visiting the cafeteria that day and trying the school lunch were members of Padres & Jovenes Unidos, a social services organization.

The school board members and members of Padres & Jovenes Unidos complained that the lunch consisted of undercooked chicken, a burned, hard bun, frozen strawberries, a hard, unripe pear, and expired milk.

Monica Acosta, a health justice organizer from Padres & Jovenes Unidos who had tried the Obama mandated lunch, said:

“It’s heartbreaking… That’s the type of food Kepner students have been having all year long.”

A photograph of the vile, repugnant Obama mandated lunch can be seen here.

Obama has always sent his own children to private schools, which were exempt from having to serve the Obama mandated lunch.

1,091) Obamacare punished small business owners who paid directly for their employees’ health care

Beginning on July 1, 2015, Obamacare punished small business owners who paid directly for their employees’ health care.

In September 2014, the Obama administration seized $115,000 from Tom and Marla Bednar of Raleigh, North Carolina. The Obama administration later returned the money, and admitted that it never should have seized it in the first place. However, even though the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act required the Obama administration to pay the Bednar’s $25,000 in legal fees that had resulted from their attempt to get their money back, the Obama administration refused to pay it.

1,096) Illegally gave employment authorization eligibility to the dependent spouses of H-1B immigrants

1,098) Abandoned the old system for getting qualified air-traffic controller applicants because too many of them were white males, and replaced it with a new system that asks applicants how many different sports they played when they were in high school

In 2014, it was reported that the Federal Aviation Administration had stopped giving preferential treatment to air-traffic controller applicants who had passed classes from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S., because too many of the people who passed these classes were white males.

At the same time, the FAA also stopped giving preference to applicants who were military veterans with aviation experience.

Under the new system, applicants were asked how many different high school sports they had participated in.

In May 2014, the Wall St. Journal reported:

For years, aspiring air-traffic controllers in the U.S. have enrolled in schools selected by the Federal Aviation Administration to offer special courses that could smooth the way for a job at the agency.

But at the end of December, the FAA abruptly ended that special status for the 36 participating colleges and universities…

… some critics suspect it is intended partly to increase the share of minorities and women among controllers, who are now 83% male and white…

Some school officials say their controller enrollment already has fallen off because of the FAA change.

The FAA’s new stance “just doesn’t make sense,” said Douglas Williams, aviation-program director at the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, Md… “They’re not getting the best-qualified applicants this way,” he said.

Students who have studied for the controller degrees fear they wasted time and money. Navy veteran Oscar Vega recently completed the two-year air-traffic program at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. He said he passed the FAA controller aptitude test last year, so he was shocked when, in February, he failed the biographical assessment.

“They say you can take it again,” said the 28-year-old. “But it’s not a test you can study for. And we don’t know why we failed because we don’t get any feedback.”

The schools estimate that more than 3,000 graduates have been removed from the FAA’s hiring pool because of the new policy.

In July 2014, the Chicago Tribune reported:

More than half of the latest batch of air-traffic controller job offers nationwide went to people with no aviation experience…

The hiring breakdown marks a major shift in FAA recruitment strategy, which is now geared toward… attracting more minorities and women to the nation’s largely white and male controller work force

For almost the last 25 years, until the off-the-street hiring process was implemented in February, the FAA recruited controllers heavily from among military veterans possessing aviation experience and from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S.

A sample version of the new test includes the following question:

21. The number of different high school sports I participated in was:

A- 4 or more

B- 3

C- 2

D- 1

E- didn’t play sports

1,099)  After the Algerian government donated $500,000 to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation, the Obama administration authorized the Algerian government to buy toxic, chemical, and biological agents from the U.S., even though the Obama administration had previously criticized the Algerian government for its human rights abuses

In 2011, the Obama administration criticized Algeria’s government for imposing “restrictions on freedom of assembly and association,” tolerating “arbitrary killing,” “widespread corruption,” and a “lack of judicial independence.”

However, in 2012, after the Algerian government donated $500,000 to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation, the Obama administration authorized the Algerian government to buy “toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents and associated equipment” from the U.S.

1,100) Illegally gave confidential taxpayer information to a private law firm

In May 2015, it was reported that the IRS had given confidential taxpayer information to Quinn Emanuel, a private law firm. It is illegal for the IRS to share confidential taxpayer information with third parties.

1,101) Spent $3.2 million of taxpayers’ money at casinos

During the one year period that ended on June 30, 2014, the Department of Defense spent $3.2 million of taxpayers’ money at casinos.

1,102) Spent $100,000 of taxpayers’ money at strip clubs 

During the one year period that ended on June 30, 2014, the Department of Defense spent $100,000 of taxpayers’ money at strip clubs.

1,103) “Lost” $475 million worth of oil

In September 2012, it was reported that the Department of Defense had “lost” $475 million worth of oil.

1,104) The “most transparent administration in history” told a reporter that it would honor his Freedom of Information request only if he never made any more Freedom of Information requests

In June 2015, the Washington Post reported that the Pentagon had told Jason Leopold, a reporter for Vice News, that it would honor his Freedom of Information request only if he never made any more Freedom of Information requests.

1,105) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that the Swedish government was lobbying for Clinton to avoid any sanctions that could interfere with Sweden’s business with Iran

In June 2015, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation had set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that the Swedish government was lobbying for Clinton to avoid any sanctions that could interfere with Sweden’s business with Iran.

1,106) Conducted military training exercises with house rattling explosions in a U.S. civilian neighborhood, and only gave the residents a three hour advance warning

In June 2015, the U.S. military conducted training exercises in Flint, Michigan. The exercises included explosions that were so powerful that people’s homes shook. The residents were warned only three hours in advance.

1,107) Continued the harmful ethanol mandates of Clinton and Bush

In June 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had been continuing implementing the ethanol mandates of Clinton and Bush, even though ethanol production emits 33 percent more global warming gases than gasoline.

Also in June 2015, the International Institute for Sustainable Development wrote of the U.S. ethanol mandates:

“The grain required to fill a 25-gallon gas tank with ethanol can feed one person for a year, so the amount of corn used to make [the government-required] 13 billion gallons of ethanol will not feed the almost 500 million people it was feeding in 2000. In addition, because corn is the most common animal feed and has many other uses in the food industry, the price of milk, cheese, eggs, meat, corn-based sweeteners and cereals increased as well.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why is Obama against that money being donated to charity?

What is Obama hiding?

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

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

Obama defended Mohamed and invited him to the White House.

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

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

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

In September 2015, the Washington Post reported:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Afterward, Investor’s Business Daily reported:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

However, his statement was false.

The Washington Times reported:

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

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

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

1,138) Forced successful supermarket chains to sell supermarkets to a failing company that shut them down

In September 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had forced supermarket chains Albertsons and Safeway to sell some of their supermarkets to the Haggen supermarket chain. The Los Angeles Times reported:

Albertsons and Safeway were ordered by federal regulators to divest those locations

Six months after buying the supermarkets, Haggen declared bankruptcy, and said it would close at least 100 of its supermarkets. Grocery strategist Burt P. Flickinger said:

“This is the fastest (failure) in modern supermarket history… In all of retail, I haven’t seen anything like this.”

1,139) Nobel Peace Prize winner and Commander-in-Chief Obama knowingly bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan, killing 10 patients and 12 hospital staff. No reported terrorists were killed in the bombing.

In October 2015, Commander-in-Chief Obama bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan. 10 patients and 12 hospital staff were killed. None of the 22 people who were killed were reported to have been terrorists. The U.S. military knew that the bomb site was a hospital before the bombing took place. Christopher Stokes, general director of Doctors Without Borders, called this a “war crime.”

1,140) Illegally gave work permits and Social Security numbers to 541,000 illegal aliens

In April 2015, it was reported that Obama had illegally given work permits and Social Security numbers to 541,000 illegal aliens.

1,141) Obama defended Palestinian terrorists after they attacked U.S. citizens

In August 2015, the New York Post reported:

Team Obama wins mercy for a sponsor of terrorism

Back in February, a Manhattan federal jury sent a critical message about holding the perpetrators of terror responsible: It found the Palestinian Authority liable for six attacks and assessed $218.5 million in damages.

But on Monday, thanks to Team Obama, that message was all but obliterated.

After an unusual intercession by the State and Justice departments, the judge hearing the case ordered the PA to post $10 million cash plus another $1 million a month as a bond while the case is appealed.

That’s a far cry from the $30 million a month the victorious plaintiffs had sought. And it’s a pittance next to what most other defendants would have to post.

The jurors held the PA responsible for attacks from 2002 to 2004 that killed 33 and wounded 400 others. The plaintiffs — 10 US families directly affected by the terrorism — showed that the PA employed the perps and made payments to suicide bombers’ families.

The usual appeals bond is 111 percent of the verdict — which in this case would be $655 million, since the amount is tripled under the 1992 US Anti-Terrorism Act.

1,142) Spent $236,517 of taxpayers’ money to create a video game to teach 11-year-old Kenyans how to use condoms

In September 2015, it was reported that Obama had spent $236,517 of taxpayers’ money to create a video game to teach 11-year-old Kenyans how to use condoms.

1,143) Accused a U.S. company of discrimination because it asked job applicants to provide proof that they were legally allowed to work in the U.S.

Even though it is illegal for U.S. companies to hire illegal aliens, in September 2015 the Obama administration accused Nebraska Beef Ltd of discrimination because it asked job applicants to provide proof that they were legally allowed to work in the U.S.

1,144) The “most transparent administration in history” allowed five months of gaps in the release of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails

In September 2015, it was reported that there were five months of gaps in the release of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

1,145) Illegally ignored a Freedom of Information request to provide the metadata from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails

Emails, in their original electronic state, contain metadata. When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released her emails, she printed them out on paper, and did not provide this metadata. In July 2015, Judicial Watch submitted a Freedom of Information request to get the metadata from two of these emails. The Obama administration illegally ignored this request.

1,146) Allowed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to illegally store classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets on her private email server

In September 2015, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had illegally stored classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets on her private email server.

1,147) Obama refused to charge Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with perjury after it was discovered that she had committed perjury

In August 2015, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a sworn statement, under penalty of perjury, saying that she had turned over all of her work related emails. In September 2015, it was discovered that her statement was false. However, Obama refused to charge her with perjury.

1,148) Broke his promise to remove all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016

During his 2012 re-election campaign, Obama promised to remove all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016. However, in October 2015, Obama said he would leave 5,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan at the end of 2016.

1,149) Even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011, Obama had 3,000 U.S. troops in Iraq in October 2015.

Even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011, Obama had 3,000 U.S. troops in Iraq in October 2015.

1,150) Spent $49,083 of taxpayers’ money to create a network to support the gay, lesbian, bigender, and transsexual community in India

In October 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had spent $49,083 of taxpayers’ money to create a network to support the gay, lesbian, bigender, and transsexual community in India.

1,151) Commander-in-Chief Obama adopted lower military standards so women could become Army Rangers

In a September 2015 article on U.S. Army Rangers, People magazine wrote:

… whereas men consistently were held to the strict standards outlined in the Ranger School’s Standing Operating Procedures handbook sources say, the women were allowed lighter duties and exceptions to policy…

Women were first sent to a special two-week training in January to get them ready for the school, which didn’t start until April 20. Once there they were allowed to repeat the program until they passed – while men were held to a strict pass/fail standard.

Once in the school they were allowed to repeat key parts – like patrols – while special consideration was not given to the men.

1,152) Put up screens in front of the White House to prevent the visiting Chinese President from seeing protesters

In September 2015, Obama had screens put up in front of the White House to prevent visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping from seeing protesters.

1,153) Had a double standard for whether or not Indian reservations were federal land

In October 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration treated Indian reservations as federal land in order to block oil and gas drilling, but treated the same reservations as non-federal land in order to allow marijuana to be grown.

1,154) Obama’s 2015 nuclear inspection deal with Iran violated a law that Obama himself had signed in 2012

In 2012, Obama signed the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act, which prohibited foreign subsidiaries of U.S. firms from doing business with Iran for as long as Iran remained on the U.S. State Department’s list of terror sponsors. However, Obama’s 2015 nuclear inspection deal with Iran violated this prohibition.

1,155) Falsely said “It is easier to buy a gun than buy a book”

In October 2015, Obama falsely said:

“It is easier to buy a gun than buy a book.”

1,156) Gave U.S. employers $10,000 of taxpayers’ money for each foreign born, U.S. educated, non-citizen STEM worker that they hired in the U.S., and announced plans to increase the amount to $12,000

In October 2015, it was reported that the Obama administration had announced plans to give U.S. employers $12,000 of taxpayers’ money for each foreign born, U.S. educated, non-citizen STEM worker that they hired in the U.S., instead of the $10,000 that it had already been paying.

1,162) Although the so-called justification for Obamacare is that health insurance constitutes “interstate commerce,” Obamacare policies are not actually allowed to be sold across state lines

Supporters of Obamacare try to justify it by saying that health insurance constitutes “interstate commerce.” However, Obamacare policies are not actually allowed to be sold across state lines.

1,163) Obamacare’s prohibition against selling health insurance across states lines caused insurance premiums to skyrocket

Competition, when it’s allowed, keeps prices down. However, Obamacare forces people to buy health insurance in the same state where they live. Obamacare policies are not allowed to be sold across state lines. As a result, there was very little competition, and this caused prices to skyrocket. In October 2015, the New York Times wrote:

Many Need to Shop Around on HealthCare.gov as Prices Jump, U.S. Says

In Tennessee, the state insurance commissioner approved a 36 percent rate increase for the largest health insurer in the state’s individual marketplace. In Iowa, the commissioner approved rate increases averaging 29 percent for the state’s dominant insurer….

… only one insurer is offering coverage in the marketplace in Wyoming, and consumers have a choice of just two insurers in Alaska, Hawaii, Oklahoma, South Dakota and West Virginia….

In Minnesota, officials approved increases averaging 49 percent for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota…

The Iowa insurance commissioner, Nick Gerhart, approved rate increases averaging 29 percent for Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the state’s dominant health insurer, and 20 percent for Coventry Health Care….

1,166) Falsely said Tashfeen Malik was not a threat

In July 2014, the Obama administration allowed Tashfeen Malik to enter the U.S. from Saudi Arabia, after the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security said she was not a threat.

However, in December 2015, Malik and her husband (who was born in the U.S.) murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California.

Afterward, the New York Times wrote:

Tashfeen Malik, who with her husband carried out the massacre in San Bernardino, Calif., passed three background checks by American immigration officials as she moved to the United States from Pakistan. None uncovered what Ms. Malik had made little effort to hide — that she talked openly on social media about her views on violent jihad.

She said she supported it. And she said she wanted to be a part of it.

1,167) Attorney General Loretta Lynch falsely said Islamophobia was a “greater fear” than Islamic terrorism

In December 2015, after Islamic terrorists murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said:

“The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my greatest fear as a prosecutor, as someone who is sworn to the protection of all of the American people, which is that the rhetoric will be accompanied by acts of violence… My message to not just the Muslim community but to the entire American community is: we cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.”

However, according to the FBI, in 2014, there were four times as many hate crimes based on anti-semitism as there were based on Islamophobia.

1,169) Told the FBI and the National Security Council to falsely “downplay” the role of terrorism as a motivation for the December 2015 San Bernardino terrorist attack

In July 2015, a guy named Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez murdered five members of the U.S. military in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Four months later, it was reported that the Obama administration may never reveal Abdulazeez’s motivation for committing the murders. FBI Director James Comey said:

“Sometimes the way we investigate requires us to keep information secret. That’s a good thing. We don’t want to smear people.”

1,172) ) The “most transparent administration in history” refused to release the immigration records of 72 U.S. residents who had been arrested on terror-related charges

1,173) Illegally changed federal gun control law

Before January 2016, federal gun control law stated that background checks were required only when the seller was someone whose

“principal objective of livelihood and profit [is] the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms.”

Also before January 2016, the same federal gun control law exempted background checks when the seller was anyone

“who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms.”

In January 2016, Obama repealed this exemption. Because he did so without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

1,174) White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett falsely said “The president is not circumventing Congress”

In January 2016, after Obama illegally changed federal gun control law without approval from Congress, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett said:

“The president is not circumventing Congress”

Despite this video evidence of sexual assault, Obama refused to fire or prosecute the TSA agent. The video can be seen at http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=f91_1451695115

1,177) “Obamas Make Jumbo 529 Contribution While Pushing Repeal For Everyone Else”

In January 2015, Forbes reported:

Obamas Make Jumbo 529 Contribution While Pushing Repeal For Everyone Else

President Obama proposed this week to tax the earnings on new contributions to “Section 529″ college savings plans.  These plans work like Roth IRAs for college–you put in after-tax money, the money grows tax-free, and withdrawals are tax-free if used to pay for tuition and fees.

Obama wants the earnings on these plans to face ordinary income tax, at rates as high as 39.6 percent federally.

… back in 2007, Barack and Michelle Obama made a stunning $240,000 contribution to the 529 plans of their two daughters.

1,180) There were three major differences between Obama’s “Operation Fast and Furious” and Bush’s “Operation Wide Receiver”

Bush and Obama each had a program where the U.S. government put guns into the hands of Mexican criminals. Bush’s program was called “Operation Wide Receiver,” and Obama’s program was called “Operation Fast and Furious.” However, there were three major differences between the two programs:

First, Bush’s program was carried out with the knowledge, permission, and cooperation of the Mexican government, whereas Obama’s program was not. Mexican attorney general Marisela Morales told the Los Angeles Times that she first learned about Obama’s program from the news, and said, “In no way would we have allowed it, because it is an attack on the safety of Mexicans.”

Secondly, many of the guns used in Bush’s program contained radio tracking devices, whereas most of the guns used in Obama’s program did not. In addition, under Bush’s program, U.S. federal agents followed the guns to see whose hands they ended up in, whereas with Obama’s program, U.S. federal agents were ordered not to do this.

Third, Bush’s program did not cause any known deaths, whereas Obama’s program did.

1,181) Falsely said “99.9 percent of Muslims… are looking for the same thing we’re looking for”

“I think that for us to be successful in fighting this scourge, it’s very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we’re looking for — order, peace, prosperity.”

However, if Obama had actually bothered to do research before making his statement, he might have found this article from the Washington Post, which said:

Majorities of Muslims in Egypt and Pakistan support the death penalty for leaving Islam

May 1, 2013

“… according to the 2013 Pew Research Center report, 88 percent of Muslims in Egypt and 62 percent of Muslims in Pakistan favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim religion. This is also the majority view among Muslims in Malaysia, Jordan and the Palestinian territories…  In Bangladesh… it is about half as prevalent, with 36 percent saying they support it. Fewer than one in six Tunisian Muslims hold the view, as do fewer than one in seven Muslims in Lebanon… 6 percent of Russian Muslims agree that converts from Islam should face death, as do 1 percent of Albanian Muslims and, at the bottom of the chart, 0.5 percent of Kazakhs…”

1,183) The Obama administration falsely said it had no idea where the money went when it spent $43 million of taxpayers’ money to build a gas station that was supposed to cost $500,000

In November 2015, the Obama administration said it had no idea where the money went when it spent $43 million of taxpayers’ money to build a gas station in Sheberghan, Afghanistan, that was supposed to cost $500,000.

However, in the real world, there would be canceled paper checks, or records of electronic payments, or some other type of documented information that showed where the money went.

1,184) Althoughg Saudi Arabia is an Islamic dictatorship, the Obama administration said it “would welcome” it onto the United Nations’ Human Rights Council

In 2010, Freedom House included Saudi Arabia on its list of “the world’s most repressive societies.”

On page 17 of this PDF, Freedom House wrote the following about Saudi Arabia:

Saudi Arabia is not an electoral democracy.

The country’s 1992 Basic Law declares that the Koran and the Sunna (the guidance set by the deeds and sayings of the prophet Muhammad) are the country’s constitution.

Political parties are forbidden, and organized political opposition exists only outside of the country.

The government tightly controls the content of domestic media and dominates regional print and satellite television coverage. Government officials have banned journalists and editors who publish articles deemed offensive to the ruling authorities or the country’s powerful religious establishment. The regime has blocked access to over 400,000 websites that are considered immoral or politically sensitive.

Religious freedom does not exist in Saudi Arabia. All Saudis are required by law to be Muslims, and the government prohibits the public practice of any religions other than Islam.

Women are not treated as equal members of society, and many laws discriminate against them. They may not legally drive cars, their use of public facilities is restricted when men are present, and they cannot travel within or outside of the country without a male relative.

However, in September 2015, after Saudi Arabia was put onto the United Nations’ Human Rights Council, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said

“… we would welcome it.”

November 8, 2015

Heaving under mountains of paperwork, the government has spent more than $1 billion trying to replace its antiquated approach to managing immigration with a system of digitized records, online applications and a full suite of nearly 100 electronic forms.

A decade in, all that officials have to show for the effort is a single form that’s now available for online applications and a single type of fee that immigrants pay electronically. The 94 other forms can be filed only with paper.

However, on November 30, 2015, it was reported that during the previous two weeks (i.e., the two weeks immediately after Islamic terrorists murdered 130 people in Paris) of the 132 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration had admitted into the U.S., 100% of them were Muslim, and 0% of them were Christian.

1,196) Broke his promise to help Iraq War veteran David McKimmey

In an off-the-record meeting with journalists on Tuesday, Obama said that he did not watch enough cable news to fully recognize the extent of people’s fears, sources with knowledge of the meeting told CNN. That characterization of Obama’s remarks was included in a New York Times article, but later removed while the article was being edited for the print edition.

1,209) A statement by Obama on the use of guns for self defense contradicted a previous study which had been funded by his own administration

In January 2016, Obama said:

“And so if you look at the statistics, there’s no doubt that there are times where somebody who has a weapon has been able to protect themselves and scare off an intruder or an assailant. But what is more often the case is that they may not have been able to protect themselves but they end up the victim of the weapon that they purchased themselves.”

However, a 2013 study which had been funded by the Obama administration stated:

“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”

1,220) Ben Rhodes, the person whom Obama chose to be his lead foreign policy advisor, has a master’s degree in fiction, and has no experience or training in foreign policy

In May 2016, the New York Times reported:

The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru

How Ben Rhodes rewrote the rules of diplomacy for the digital age

Rhodes writes the president’s speeches, plans his trips abroad and runs communications strategy across the White House, tasks that, taken individually, give little sense of the importance of his role. He is, according to the consensus of the two dozen current and former White House insiders I talked to, the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Potus himself.

His lack of conventional real-world experience of the kind that normally precedes responsibility for the fate of nations — like military or diplomatic service, or even a master’s degree in international relations, rather than creative writing — is still startling.

Having recently spent time working in Hollywood, I realize during our conversations that the role Rhodes plays in the White House bears less resemblance to any specific character on Beltway-insider TV shows like “The West Wing” or “House of Cards” than it does to the people who create those shows. And like most TV writers, Rhodes clearly prefers to imagine himself in the company of novelists.

Jon Favreau, then the campaign’s lead speechwriter, felt as if he could use a foreign-affairs expert who could write… “The idea of someone with a masters in fiction… seemed perfect for a candidate who put so much emphasis on storytelling.”

U.S.-funded Somali intelligence agency has been using kids as spies

MOGADISHU, Somalia — For years they were children at war, boys given rifles and training by al-Qaeda-backed militants and sent to the front lines of this country’s bloody conflict. Many had been kidnapped from schools and soccer fields and forced to fight.

The United Nations pleaded for them to be removed from the battlefield. The United States denounced the Islamist militants for using children to plant bombs and carry out assassinations.

But when the boys were finally disarmed — some defecting and others apprehended — what awaited them was yet another dangerous role in the war. This time, the children say, they were forced to work for the Somali government.

The boys were used for years as informants by the country’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA), according to interviews with the children and Somali and U.N. officials. They were marched through neighborhoods where al-Shabab insurgents were hiding and told to point out their former comrades. The faces of intelligence agents were covered, but the boys — some as young as 10 — were rarely concealed, according to the children. Several of them were killed. One tried to hang himself while in custody.

The Somali agency’s widespread use of child informants, which has not been previously documented, appears to be a flagrant violation of international law. It raises difficult questions for the U.S. government, which for years has provided substantial funding and training to the Somali agency through the CIA, according to current and former U.S. officials.

The child informants were used to collect intelligence or identify suspects in some of the world’s most dangerous neighborhoods, according to their accounts.

“They took me sometimes in a car and sometimes on foot and said, ‘Tell us who is al-Shabab,’­ ” recalled one 15-year-old who said he was held by the intelligence agency. “It’s scary because you know everyone can see you working with them.”

The teenager was one of eight boys interviewed by The Washington Post who described being forced to work as informants after leaving al-Shabab. The boys each spoke alone, through an interpreter, but their accounts were nearly identical. They said they spent years in the custody of intelligence agents and were dragged along on missions, sometimes several times a week. Occasionally, they were told to wear NISA uniforms. They were threatened with violence if they didn’t cooperate, several boys said. Their parents didn’t know where they were.

1,242) The Obama administration knowingly allowed Omar Mateen to murder 49 people because it didn’t want to offend Muslims

In June 2016, an Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen murdered 49 people in Orlando, Florida.

Multiple people had warned the federal government that they thought Omar Mateen was going to commit a terrorist attack, but the government dismissed these complaints because, in the hierarchy of political correctness, not wanting to offend Muslims takes precedence over saving the lives of innocent U.S. citizens.

In 2013, Mateen’s coworkers reported to the FBI that Mateen had made terroristic threats, had told them that he had family connections to Al Qaeda, had told them that he was a member of a Shi’a terrorism organization, and had told them that he hoped to be a martyr (which wikipedia defines as “a man or woman who dies while conducting jihad”).

In response to all of these things, the FBI conducted a 10 month investigation into Mateen.

The FBI closed this 10 month investigation by falsely concluding that Mateen’s coworkers were “racist.”

Also in 2013, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara’s office reported to the FBI that Mateen had said that he could have al-Qaida kill one of Mascara’s employees and the employee’s family, and had also said that the Fort Hood shooter (an Islamic terrorist who murdered 13 people in Texas in 2009) was justified in what he had done.

1,249) The “most transparent administration in history” continued Bush’s policy of allowing Hillary Clinton to use third parties to hide the true identities of many of the parties who paid her husband to give speeches

Hillary Clinton was a U.S. Senator during the Bush administration, and Secretary of State during Obama’s administration. While holding both jobs, it was often the case that instead of naming the true source of funding for paid speeches that were given by her husband, Bill Clinton, she listed middleman companies, such as “World Management Limited.”

1,250) A spokesperson for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton contradicted Clinton’s own statement about the 30,000 emails that Clinton had deleted from her private server

In March 2015, ABC News reported the following about the 30,000 emails that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had deleted from her private server:

“We went through a thorough process to identify all of my work-related emails and deliver them to the State Department,” she said, adding that all other emails were personal and pertained to matters such as “yoga routines,” “family vacations,” and “planning Chelsea’s wedding.”

In July 2016, Donald Trump said:

“I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens. That’ll be next. Yes, sir.”

Hillary for America senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan responded by saying:

“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent… That’s not hyperbole, those are just the facts. This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

So, which is it?

Are all of the emails private and not related to work?

Or, are they a matter of national security?

They can’t be both.

So which is it?

1,251) The “most transparent administration in history” illegally ignored a Freedom of Information request regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedule

However, on August 18, 2016, the Obama administration said that the payment was contingent on the hostages being released.

One of these two statements by the Obama administration must be a lie. I don’t even have to know which of the two statements is true, and which one is false, to know that one of them is a lie.

1,256) The “most transparent administration in history” refused to answer questions from Congress about how it paid an additional $1.3 billion to Iran

Depending on whom you ask, the number of bodies found in the rubble is 56, 85, 160 or 212. Pictures of the mangled bodies, covered in dust, are a testament to the carnage.

People who live near where the bombs fell — about 10 miles north of Manbij in northern Syria — said the only planes they’d seen since June were from a U.S.-led coalition battling the Islamic State.

At least 56 civilians were killed in this incident.

Furthermore, on August 11, 2016 – the very next day – the Obama administration announced that it would continue to classify marijuana as an illegal and dangerous Schedule 1 drug.

For the record, I think that marijuana, both recreational and medical, should be legal. I don’t have any problem with Obama’s daughter smoking marijuana. It’s President Obama’s hypocrisy that I have a problem with.

1,272) The “most transparent administration in history” “altered intelligence reports to portray a more optimistic picture of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria”

In August 2016, the New York Times reported:

Military Officials Distorted ISIS Intelligence, Congressional Panel Says

Officials from the United States Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray a more optimistic picture of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria than events on the ground warranted, a congressional panel said in a report issued Thursday.

The interim report, from a task force established by the Republican chairmen of the House Armed Services Committee, Intelligence Committee and Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, found “widespread dissatisfaction” among Central Command intelligence analysts, who said superiors were doctoring their assessments of American efforts to defeat the Islamic State. Central Command, known as Centcom, is the military headquarters in Tampa, Fla., that oversees American military operations across the Middle East and Central Asia.

“Intelligence products approved by senior Centcom leaders typically provided a more positive depiction of U.S. antiterrorism efforts than was warranted by facts on the ground and were consistently more positive than analysis produced by other elements of the intelligence community,” a news release about the report said.

“What happened at Centcom is unacceptable — our war fighters suffer when bad analysis is presented to senior policy makers,” said Representative Ken Calvert, Republican of California. “The leadership failures at Centcom reach to the very top of the organization.”

“Throughout the first half of 2015, many Central Command press releases, statements and congressional testimonies were significantly more positive than actual events,” the report said.

In August 2016, U.S. News & World Report reported:

Sailor Denied ‘Clinton Deal’, Gets 1 Year in Prison for 6 Photos of Sub

A former Navy machinist mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state.

Kristian Saucier’s attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been “engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier” with information of much higher classification. It would be “unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid,” attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill sentenced Saucier to one year in prison and a $100 fine, along with six months home confinement, 100 hours of community service and a ban on owning guns, his legal team says.

Hillary State Dept. Helped Jailed Clinton Foundation Donor Get $10 Mil from U.S. for Failed Haiti Project

The new batch of emails showing that the State Department gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state brings to mind the case of a shady Miami businessman serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions. His name is Claudio Osorio, a Clinton Foundation donor who got $10 million from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings.

Osorio got the money from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a federal agency that operates under the guidance of the State Department, to build houses in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. The OPIC supposedly promotes U.S. government investments abroad to foster the development and growth of free markets. Osorio’s “Haiti project” was supposed to build 500 homes for displaced families in the aftermath of the earthquake. The project never broke ground and Osorio used the money to finance his lavish lifestyle and fund his illicit business ventures. He also ran a fraudulent international company with facilities in the U.S., United Arab Emirates, Germany, Angola and Tanzania that stole millions from investors. Some of the OPIC Haiti money was used to repay investors of his fraudulent company (Innovida), according to federal prosecutors. In September 2013, Osorio was sentenced to 150 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release.

1,312) “Report says Obama administration failed to follow health law”

In September 2016, Associated Press reported:

Report says Obama administration failed to follow health law

The nonpartisan investigative agency of Congress says the Obama administration failed to follow the president’s health care law in a $5 billion dispute over compensating insurers for high costs from seriously ill patients.

The finding by the Government Accountability Office is a setback for the White House and bolsters Republican complaints that administration officials bent the law as problems arose carrying out its complicated provisions.

The law specified that $5 billion from a $25 billion fee to compensate insurers would go directly to the Treasury. But when fee collections fell short, the administration failed to allocate a share of money to the Treasury.

The GAO says that’s “inconsistent with the plain meaning of the statute.”

1,319) “Companies used Clinton fundraisers to lobby State Department”

In October 2016, USA Today reported:

Companies used Clinton fundraisers to lobby State Department

Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton family foundations is closer and more complex than even Donald Trump has claimed so far.

While it is widely known that some companies and foreign governments gave money to the foundations, perhaps in an effort to gain favor, one of the key parts of the puzzle hasn’t been reported: At least a dozen of those same companies lobbied the State Department, using lobbyists who doubled as major Clinton campaign fundraisers.

Those companies gave as much as $16 million to the Clinton charities. At least four of the lobbyists they hired are “Hillblazers,” the Clinton campaign’s name for supporters who have raised $100,000 or more for her current White House race. Two of the four also raised funds for Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential bid.

USA Today reached these conclusions by obtaining federal lobbying data from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics for 2009-2013, Clinton’s tenure as secretary of State. Reporters then compared the data with donor lists made public by the Clinton nonprofits and federal campaign financial records.

Among the donors to the Clinton foundations who also used Clinton-connected lobbyists at the Department of State:

Microsoft has given between $1 million and $5 million to the foundations, as the tech giant also lobbied for visa issues, protection of critical infrastructure and cybersecurity, software industry licensing and government procurement.

Pfizer, one of the world’s top biopharmaceutical companies, has also given between $1 million and $5 million to the foundations, while lobbying for such issues as intellectual property rights overseas and issues related to medicines in Turkey and India.

ExxonMobil, the global oil and energy company based in Texas, gave the foundations between $1 million and $5 million. The company lobbied the Department of State for issues involving hydraulic fracturing, popularly known as fracking, oil sands and other provisions.

The Northeast Maglev, a Washington, D.C.-based company that advocates for high-speed, magnetic levitation rail service in the U.S., donated as much as $100,000 while lobbying the Department of State to help provide support for the issue.

Mexico TV network Azteca and its affiliates donated as much as $375,000 while lobbying for U.S. business opportunities, an education initiative involving students from the U.S., Mexico and Latin America, and other causes.

1,320) After Obama had 45 meetings with a guy named Robert Creamer, video showed one of Creamer’s employees admitting to having committed voter fraud by using buses to drive the same people to vote multiple times at different precincts, as well as admitting that the DNC paid people to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies

In 2005, a guy named Robert Creamer pled guilty to $2.3 million in bank fraud in relation to his operation of public interest groups.

Creamer was a consultant during Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns.

During Obama’s presidency, Creamer visited the White House 340 times, and met with Obama during 45 of those visits. In two of those meetings, Obama and Creamer were the only people at the meetings.

One of Creamer’s employees was a guy named Scott Foval.

This video has the following quotes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IuJGHuIkzY

At 0:16, Creamer says:

“Hillary knows through the chain of command what’s going on.”

At 3:01, Foval says:

“I am contracted to him (Robert Creamer).”

At 7:20, Foval says:

“There’s a script. There’s a script of engagement. Sometimes the crazies bite and sometimes the crazies don’t bite.”

At 7:26, Foval says:

“They’re starting confrontations in the line.”

At 7:46, Foval says:

“The key is initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people who are naturally psychotic.”

At 8:45, Foval says they provide

“agitator training”

At 9:34, a guy named Aaron Black says:

“So the Chicago protest when they shut all that, that was us. It was more him (Robert Creamer) than me, but none of this is supposed to come back to us, because we want it coming from people, we don’t want it to come from the party.”

At 10:13, Foval says:

“We have to be really careful, because what we don’t need is for it to show up on CNN that the DNC paid for X people to – that’s not going to happen.”

At 10:25, a woman named Zulema Rodriguez says:

“B and I did the Chicago Trump event where we shut down like all the…”

At 10:50, Creamer says:

“We have a call with the campaign every day to go over the focuses that need to be undertaken.”

At 11:07, Rodriguez says:

“We also did the Arizona one where we shut the highway down.”

At 13:48, Foval says:

“We have mentally ill people that we pay to do shit.”

This other video has the following quote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDc8PVCvfKs

At 2:47, Foval says:

“It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, well they’re busing people in. Well you know what? We’ve been busing people in to deal with you fuckin’ assholes for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now.  We’re just going to find a different way to do it.”

After those two videos were released, Creamer and Foval both lost their jobs.

1,324) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave two favors to a Moroccan state owned phosphate mining company in exchange for Morocco donating $28 million to her foundation

In October 2016, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had given two favors to a Moroccan state owned phosphate mining company in exchange for Morocco donating $28 million to her foundation. One of the favors was that Clinton had tried to shut down Mosaic Company in Florida, which at the time was America’s largest phosphate mining facility. This would have benefited Morocco’s state-owned phosphate company, OCP, which was a competitor of the American company. The other favor was that Clinton relaxed U.S. foreign aid restrictions on Morocco, which benefited OCP’s phosphate mining operations.

1,325) “Clinton Foundation memo reveals Bill and Hillary as partners in crime”

In October 2016, the Hill reported:

Clinton Foundation memo reveals Bill and Hillary as partners in crime

Last week, WikiLeaks dropped a 2011 memo by top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band that lays bare Team Clinton’s sordid financial dealings when Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

Band describes how the Clinton Foundation served as a conduit for what he called “Bill Clinton Inc.” — the former president’s for-profit arm. Other documents show State Department involvement.

The result is an unsavory mix of charity work, profiteering, and pay-to-play politics that potentially reaches the highest levels of US foreign policy and screams for IRS and Department of Justice reviews.  

From an IRS standpoint, red flags should abound. Charities must detail how they separate nonprofit from for-profit business. Those benefiting private interests or inure “insider” private gain lose their tax-deductible status because Treasury is cheated.

Alibaba — criticized for helping the Chinese government crackdown on internet freedom — lobbied State on intellectual property rights.

Coca-Cola double dipped by receiving excise-tax help with Pakistan and Thailand.

Dow avoided liability in India for a predecessor company’s accident that killed thousands because the Obama administration helped it avoid Indian courts.

Band also influenced State in other ways. He procured jobs at the prestigious agency. When he said one person was “important to take care of,” Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin responded, “(State Department) personnel is sending him options.”

He got Dow executives invited to State functions with Secretary Clinton in Japan. And Abedin consulted him to ensure people requesting a meeting on a foreign trip were “legit cgi people.”

This is serious. Federal regulations bar government employees from using “public office for . . . private gain . . . or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity, including nonprofit organizations . . .” Bribery laws are also potentially relevant.  

1,326) Email showed that the Obama administration illegally discriminated against Christian Arabs when it came to hiring people

In October 2016, it was reported that a September 2008 email showed that if Obama were to win the election, his administration would illegally discriminate against hiring Christian Arabs. The email said:

In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).

1,327) Falsely said that opponents of Obamacare did not have a plan to replace it

In November 2016, when talking about Republican opponents of Obamacare, Obama said:

Not even a remote — not even a — there’s no plan. Nothing, zero, nada. You can’t just be against something. You gotta be for something.”

1,328) Falsely said that none of the predictions that were made by Obamacare opponents came true

1,333) After U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton proposed illegally rigging the Palestine election, Obama hired her to be Secretary of State

In 2006, when Hillary Clinton was a U.S. Senator, she said:

“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake. And if we we’re going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”

You can hear her saying it at 0:35 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-W-SYn-uhk

    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!
