I just added items #1,343 through #1,366 to my list of Obama’s lies and lawbreaking

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

Here are the new entries:

1,343) Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, falsely said that the Obama administration had been “historically free of scandal”

In January 2017, Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, falsely said that the Obama administration had been

“historically free of scandal.”

1,344) Although Obama is against letting innocent, law abiding homeowners use guns to protect themselves and their families from murderers and rapists, he commuted the sentence of convicted gun criminal Oscar Lopez Rivera

In 2004, when Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing innocent, law abiding homeowners use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

However, in January 2017, Obama commuted the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera. According to the New York Times, Rivera had been convicted of

“the interstate transportation of firearms with the intent to commit violent crimes, and transportation of explosives with intent to kill and injure people and to destroy government buildings and property”

1,345) “Obama is the first president to serve eight years and preside over American wars during every single day of his tenure”

On January 18, 2017, NPR reported:

“Obama is the first president to serve eight years and preside over American wars during every single day of his tenure.”

1,346) Obama broke his promise to end Bush’s Afghanistan war

In January 2017, it was reported that Obama had broken his promise to end Bush’s Afghanistan war.

1,347) More than three times as many U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan under Obama as under Bush

When Bush was president, 558 U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan.

When Obama was president, 1,689 U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan.

1,348) When Obama thought Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election, he said it was not possible to hack the election. However, after Clinton lost, Obama said it was possible to hack the election.

When Obama thought that Hillary Clinton was going to win the 2016 Presidential election, he said:

“The larger point that I want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even – you could even rig America’s elections…”

“… and so I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes.”

However, after Clinton lost the election, Obama said:

“Russia trying to influence our elections dates back to the Soviet Union. What they did here, hacking some emails and releasing them, is not a particularly fancy brand of espionage or propaganda. We were, frankly, more concerned in the run-up to the election to the possibilities of vote tampering, which we did not see evidence of and were confident that we could guard against.”

You can hear Obama saying these things at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS5iq1fdWyE

1,349) U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained Ibtihaj Muhammad, a law abiding, Muslim, U.S. citizen, who was born in New Jersey, and who won an Olympic medal

In December 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained Ibtihaj Muhammad, a law abiding, Muslim, U.S. citizen, who was born in New Jersey, and who won an Olympic medal.

1,350) Praised Linda Sarsour, who wanted the U.S. to adopt Sharia law

Sharia law bans women from driving cars, prohibits women from appearing alone in public, calls for girls to have their genitals mutilated, and gives a woman’s testimony in court only half the value of a man’s.

A woman named Linda Sarsour, who was born in New York City, made these four tweets in favor of the U.S. adopting Sharia law:

One:

“10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame.”

Two:

“shariah law is reasonable and once u read into the details it makes a lot of sense. People just know the basics”

Three:

“You’ll know when you’re living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound nice, doesn’t it?”

Four:

“If you are still paying interest than Sharia Law hasn’t taken over America.”

After Sarsour made those tweets, liberals chose her to be one of the organizers of the January 21, 2017 Women’s March. Given that Sharia law goes against every single thing that the “women’s rights” advocates on the political left claim to stand for, I find this quite puzzling.

On January 17, 2017, the Obama White House website praised Sarsour as one of its “Champions of Change.”

1,351) Thirteen days after Carolyn Flowers, a top Obama administration executive at the U.S. Department of Transportation, approved a $647 million grant for a California rail project, Flowers started working for one of the project’s private contractors

On January 18, 2017, Carolyn Flowers, a top Obama administration executive at the U.S. Department of Transportation, approved a $647 million grant for a California rail project. Thirteen days later, Flowers started working for Aecom, one of the project’s private contractors.

1,352) The “most transparent administration in history” secretly approved a no-bid, $418 million U.S. weapons sale to Kenya

On January 19, 2017, the Obama administration secretly approved a no-bid, $418 million U.S. weapons sale to Kenya. The sale was not made public until after Obama’s second presidential term had expired. A different company, which had more experience and charged lower prices, was not allowed to bid on the contract.

1,353) Continued Bush’s policy of falsely labeling Wall St. investment firms as “small businesses” so they could get taxpayer guaranteed loans from the Small Business Administration

In December 2016, it was reported that Obama had continued Bush’s policy of falsely labeling Wall St. investment firms as “small businesses” so they could get taxpayer guaranteed loans from the Small Business Administration.

1,354) Continued Bush’s policy of spending taxpayers’ money on subsidies for “farms” in Washington D.C., Chicago, and New York City

In December 2013, it was reported that Obama had continued Bush’s policy of spending taxpayers’ money on subsidies for “farms” in Washington D.C., Chicago, and New York City. A map showed that these “farms” covered all of the national landmarks in Washington D.C.

1,355) “Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel”

In April 2017, Bloomberg reported:

Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel

Investigators saw a pattern behind requests from Susan Rice.

White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.”

… Rice’s multiple requests to learn the identities of Trump officials discussed in intelligence reports during the transition period does highlight a longstanding concern for civil liberties advocates about U.S. surveillance programs…

1,356) “FBI obtained FISA warrant to monitor Trump adviser Carter Page… Page has not been accused of any crimes”

In April 2017, the Washington Post reported: (the bolding is mine)

FBI obtained FISA warrant to monitor Trump adviser Carter Page

The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of an adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump

The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Page’s communications

Page has not been accused of any crimes

“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

1,357) Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren criticized Obama for accepting $400,000 for giving a speech to Wall St.

In April 2017, after Obama accepted $400,000 for giving a speech to Wall St., Bernie Sanders said it was “unfortunate,” and Elizabeth Warren said, “I was troubled by that.”

1,358) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s classified emails were illegally stored on Anthony Weiner’s computer

When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, her aide was Huma Abedin. Abedin’s husband was Anthony Weiner. In May 2017, it was reported that some of Clinton’s classified emails had been illegally stored on Weiner’s computer.

1,359) “Bangladesh prime minister says Clinton personally pressured her to help foundation donor”

In May 2017, Circa reported:

Bangladesh prime minister says Clinton personally pressured her to help foundation donor

While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank. The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative. Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation website.

1,360) A week after Obama spoke out against global warming, he flew on a private jet to Italy

In May 2017, Obama spoke out against global warming. A week later, he flew on a private jet to Italy.

1,361) “Obama intel agency secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years… The American Civil Liberties Union said the newly disclosed violations are some of the most serious to ever be documented”

In May 2017, Circa reported: (the bolding is mine)

Obama intel agency secretly conducted illegal searches on Americans for years

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community.

More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.

The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm…

The normally supportive court censured administration officials, saying the failure to disclose the extent of the violations earlier amounted to an “institutional lack of candor” and that the improper searches constituted a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue,” according to a recently unsealed court document dated April 26, 2017.

The admitted violations undercut one of the primary defenses that the intelligence community and Obama officials have used in recent weeks to justify their snooping into incidental NSA intercepts about Americans.

Circa has reported that there was a three-fold increase in NSA data searches about Americans and a rise in the unmasking of U.S. person’s identities in intelligence reports after Obama loosened the privacy rules in 2011.

Officials like former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have argued their activities were legal under the so-called minimization rule changes Obama made, and that the intelligence agencies were strictly monitored to avoid abuses.

The intelligence court and the NSA’s own internal watchdog found that not to be true.

“Since 2011, NSA’s minimization procedures have prohibited use of U.S.-person identifiers to query the results of upstream Internet collections under Section 702,” the unsealed court ruling declared. “The Oct. 26, 2016 notice informed the court that NSA analysts had been conducting such queries inviolation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

The American Civil Liberties Union said the newly disclosed violations are some of the most serious to ever be documented and strongly call into question the U.S. intelligence community’s ability to police itself and safeguard American’s privacy as guaranteed by the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure.

“I think what this emphasizes is the shocking lack of oversight of these programs,” said Neema Singh Guliani, the ACLU’s legislative counsel in Washington.

“You have these problems going on for years that only come to the attention of the court late in the game and then it takes additional years to change its practices.

“I think it does call into question all those defenses that we kept hearing, that we always have a robust oversight structure and we have culture of adherence to privacy standards,” she added. “And the headline now is they actually haven’t been in compliacne for years and the FISA court itself says in its opinion is that the NSA suffers from a culture of a lack of candor.”

1,362) Knowingly allowed 16 illegal aliens who were admitted MS-13 gang members to illegally enter the U.S.

In May 2017, it was reported that in 2014, the Obama administration had knowingly allowed 16 illegal aliens who were admitted MS-13 gang members to illegally enter the U.S.

1,363) In Berlin, Obama said “We can’t hide behind a wall,” while hiding behind a wall

In May 2017, in Berlin, Obama said “We can’t hide behind a wall,” while hiding behind a wall.

1,364) Although Obama said, “We can’t hide behind a wall,” he had a wall built around his Washington D.C. home

In May 2017, Obama said, “We can’t hide behind a wall.” However, earlier that same year, he had a wall built around his Washington D.C. home.

1,365) The “most transparent administration in history” secretly gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in off-the-books cash bonuses to Education Department official James Runcie

In May 2017, it was reported that the Obama administration had secretly given hundreds of thousands of dollars in off-the-books cash bonuses to Education Department official James Runcie.
