Hypocrite Barack Obama gives his own daughter an exemption from the laws against marijuana which he has prosecuted so many other people for

All of the people cited below were prosecuted by President Obama for smoking medial marijuana, despite that fact that it was legal in the states where they lived.

On the other hand, President Obama refuses to prosecute his own daughter, Malia Obama, for smoking recreational marijuana.

In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the “basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs” and that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”

However, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal. Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal. In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California. Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California. Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal. In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.

In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.” In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record.” In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: “Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history.” In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had “strong concerns” about Obama’s forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi’s congressional district. In April 2012, commenting on Obama’s crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, “I’m very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration.”

In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA, which claims to be the world’s largest, and which claims to serve more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA, which teaches people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500 patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months of 2012, the DEA shut down 40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law.

In April 2013, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California. Also in April 2013, the DEA raided a medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego, California. In July 2013, the DEA conducted multiple medical marijuana raids in Washington state, including the cities of Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle. In August 2013, the DEA raided People’s Choice Alternative Medicine, a medical marijuana facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In October 2013, the DEA raided 28 medical marijuana facilities in Michigan. In November 2013, the DEA raided 12 medical marijuana facilities in Denver, Colorado.

In April 2014, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Denver, Colorado. In June 2014, DEA agents visited the homes and offices of doctors in Massachusetts who had written prescriptions for medical marijuana, and threatened to confiscate their federal licenses to prescribe certain medications if they did not stop writing prescriptions for medical marijuana. In October 2014, the DEA raided two medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California.

In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama’s youth, he often smoked large quantities of recreational marijuana.  Obama’s marijuana smoking wasn’t even medical – it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from their doctors, from using their prescription medicine – how cold hearted can a person be?

Here are the new entries:

1,203) Although Obama said he opposed building the Keystone oil pipeline in the U.S. because it would contribute to climate change, he supported building an oil pipeline in Kenya

In November 2015, Obama said he opposed building the Keystone oil pipeline in the U.S. because it would contribute to climate change. However, in January 2016, he supported building an oil pipeline in Kenya.

1,204) Video shows a Common Core textbook sales executive saying “I hate kids. I’m in it to sell books.”

In January 2016, it was reported that a video showed a Common Core textbook sales executive saying:

“I hate kids. I’m in it to sell books.”

You can see her saying it at 1:13 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8tZGl1SVs0

1,205) After a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay threatend to kill Americans, Obama sent him back to his home country of Saudi Arabia

In October 2007, Muhammad al Rahman al-Shumrani, a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, said:

“When I get out of here, I will go to Iraq and Afghanistan and kill as many Americans as I can. Then I will come here and kill more Americans.” 

However, in January 2016, Obama sent him back to his home country of Saudi Arabia.

1,206) In January 2016, Obama made yet another attempt to get banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back

In January 2016, it was reported that Obama was making yet another attempt to convince banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back.

1,207) Refused to prosecute Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for illegally storing top secret information on her private email server

1,208) The EPA knew about the dangerous levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan for months without warning the people not to drink it

In 2016, CNN reported the following about the high levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan:

The EPA says anything over 15 ppb is unsafe, and Walters’ home tested at more than 13,000 ppb.

Emails show that it was 11 months from the time that an EPA official first expressed concern over high levels of lead in Walters’ home — and seven months from when Del Toral wrote his draft memo — until the EPA issued an emergency order in Flint.

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.”

1,210) Illegally ignored a judge’s order to release the rest of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails before the first primary elections of 2016

1,211) Obama asked Christians, but not Muslims, to cover up their religious symbols when he visited them to give speeches

In 2012, when Obama gave a speech at Georgetown University, a Catholic school, he asked the school to cover up its religious symbols. However, in 2016, when he gave a speech at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, he did not make the same request.

1,212) Pressured Ally Bank to pay a settlement for racial discrimination even though there was no evidence that the bank had actually engaged in racial discrimination

In February 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had pressured Ally Bank to pay a settlement for racial discrimination even though there was no evidence that the bank had actually engaged in racial discrimination.

1,213) Continued Bush’s policy of spending $5.7 billion of taxpayers’ money on a cyber defense system that did not work

In February 2016, it was reported that the administrations of Bush and Obama had spent a combined total of $5.7 billion of taxpayers’ money on a cyber defense system that did not work.

1,214) After Obama signed the Dodd-Frank bank regulation bill, the number of new banks that opened up each year in the U.S. fell by more than 99%

Before Obama signed the Dodd-Frank bank regulation bill in 2010, more than 100 new banks had opened up each year in the U.S. However, during the combined five years after Obama signed the bill, a total of only three new banks had opened up in the U.S.

1,215) Spent $412,930 of taxpayers’ money to study the “relationship between gender and glaciers”

In April 2016, it was reported that the Department of Justice had illegally ignored a court order to turn over certain Fast and Furious documents.

1,217) After Obamacare caused Obama supporting graduate students at the University of Missouri to lose their insurance, they falsely blamed it on the school

In August 2015, the University of Missouri issued the following message to its graduate students:

“The Affordable Care Act prevents employers from giving employees money specifically so they can buy health insurance on the individual market. Graduate teaching and research assistants are classified as employees by the IRS, so they fall under this ruling.”

However, in November 2015, left wing graduate students who had voted for Obama, falsely blamed their loss of insurance on the school, instead of on Obamacare.

1,218) Falsely said it was “racist” for landlords to do criminal background checks on prospective tenants

In April 2016, the Department of Housing and Urban Development falsely said that it was “racist” for landlords to do criminal background checks on prospective tenants.

1,219) Continued Bush’s policy of refusing to fire the State Department official who had approved visas for 11 of the September 11, 2001 terrorists

In April 2016, it was reported that the State Department official who had approved visas for 11 of the September 11, 2001 terrorists was still employed by the federal government.

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.”

1,221) Ben Rhodes, Obama’s lead foreign policy advisor, said the Obama administration had lied in order to make its nuclear inspection deal with Iran

In May 2016, Ben Rhodes, Obama’s lead foreign policy advisor, said the Obama administration had lied in order to make its nuclear inspection deal with Iran.

1,222) Gun control hypocrite Obama allowed the Secret Service to shoot an armed man outside the White House

When Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

However, in May 2016, as President, Obama allowed one of his Secret Service agents to shoot an armed man who was outside the White House.

1,223) “U.S.-funded Somali intelligence agency has been using kids as spies”

In May 2016, the Washington Post reported:

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.

1,224) Illegally used taxpayers’ money to bail out Puerto Rico

In May 2016, it was reported that Obama had used taxpayer’s money to bail out Puerto Rico. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

1,225) Former Obama speechwriters laughed at Obama’s promise that people could keep their health insurance

In May 2016, on “Charlie Rose: The Week,” former Obama speechwriters laughed at Obama’s promise that people could keep their health insurance. Video of this can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pkqn6wsrUfs

1,226) A federal judge ruled that some of the funding for Obamacare was unconstitutional

In May 2016, U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that some of the funding for Obamacare was unconstitutional, because it had not been approved by Congress.

1,227) “Hidden Microphones Exposed As Part of Government Surveillance Program In The Bay Area”

In May 2016, the San Francisco affiliate of CBS News reported:

Hidden Microphones Exposed As Part of Government Surveillance Program In The Bay Area

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed.

Imagine standing at a bus stop, talking to your friend and having your conversation recorded without you knowing.  It happens all the time, and the FBI doesn’t even need a warrant to do it.

Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations.

Jeff Harp, a KPIX 5 security analyst and former FBI special agent said, “They put microphones under rocks, they put microphones in trees, they plant microphones in equipment. I mean, there’s microphones that are planted in places that people don’t think about, because that’s the intent!”

FBI agents hid microphones inside light fixtures and at a bus stop outside the Oakland Courthouse without a warrant to record conversations, between March 2010 and January 2011.

1,228) A federal judge ordered lawyers from the Department of Justice to take ethics classes because they had lied to him in order to get Obama’s immigration program approved

In May 2016, Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas ordered lawyers from the Department of Justice to take ethics classes because they had lied to him in order to get Obama’s immigration program approved.

1,229) Reports from the Department of Justice suggested that guns from Obama’s Fast And Furious program had been linked to at least 69 killings by Mexican drug cartels

In May 2016, it was reported that newly released documents from the Department of Justice suggested that guns from Obama’s Fast And Furious program had been linked to at least 69 killings by Mexican drug cartels.

1,230) Falsely declared more than 4,000 veterans dead, and wrongly cut off their benefits

In May 2016, it was reported that between between 2011 and 2015, the Veterans Administration had falsely declared more than 4,000 veterans dead, and had wrongly cut off their benefits.

1,231) Falsely said it was “racist” for colleges and universities to conduct criminal background checks on prospective students

In May 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had deleted online conflict of interest disclosures for top federal officials.

The Daily Caller reported that before these online reports were deleted by the Obama administration, they had been:

… the primary tool that watchdog journalists, political activists and interested voters can use to guard against presidential appointees using their positions to enrich themselves or others….

… website featured a sortable, searchable list of over 1,000 government appointees, including their names, agencies and titles, and flagging new ones. By clicking on a name, users could easily access multiple disclosures for the appointee, including yearly financial accounting, stock ownership and a letter detailing any agreements surrounding conflicts, such as issues when the individual promises to recuse himself….

1,233) Obama extorted banks into making “donations” to some of his favorite left wing community organizing groups

In May 2016, it was reported that after Obama sued Citigroup and Bank of America over their actions regarding the collapse of the housing bubble, Obama told these banks that they would only have to pay 50 cents on the dollar if, instead of paying the settlement money to the actual victims, they “donated” the settlement money to some of Obama’s favorite left wing community organizing groups, including NeighborWorks and La Raza.

1,234) Obama’s refugee program continued to discriminate against Christian refugees from Syria, even though Christians in that country were being specifically targeted for persecution

Christians made up 10% of Syria’s population, and they were being specifically targeted by ISIS.

However, in May 2016, the Obama administration admitted 1,035 Muslim refugees from Syria into the U.S., but only two Christian refugees from that same country.

1,235) The “most transparent administration in history” edited a video of a press briefing to remove a question from Fox News correspondent James Rosen 

In June 2016, it was reported that the State Department had edited a video of a press briefing to remove a question from Fox News correspondent James Rosen.

1,236) After the State Department edited a video of a press briefing to remove a question from Fox News correspondent James Rosen, the State Department falsely blamed in on a “glitch”

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.

The FBI investigated this, and falsely concluded that Mateen was “not a threat.”

1,243) Planned to removed references to Islamic terrorism from the transcripts of 911 calls made by Omar Mateen

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

During his attack, Mateen called 911 three times, and made references to ISIS and al-Baghadadi.

Afterward, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the FBI would remove references to ISIS and al-Baghadadi from the transcripts of these 911 calls before releasing them to the public.

However, after people complained about this, the FBI changed its mind and released transcripts with those references included.

1,244) Told federal employees who were investigating Islamic terrorism not to use words such as “jihad,” “sharia,” and “takfir”

In June 2016, the Department of Homeland Security told its employees who were investigating Islamic terrorism not to use words such as “jihad,” “sharia,” and “takfir.”

1,245) The Obama administration lied to Congress about the number of crimes committed by criminal illegal aliens after they had been released by the Obama administration

In July 2015, Immigration and Customs Enforcement told Congress that in 2014, criminal illegal aliens who had been released by the Obama administration had committed 1,423 additional crimes after they had been released.

However, in June 2016, a Freedom of Information request showed that the actual number was 13,288.

1,246) A federal judge ruled that the Obama administration’s fracking rules were illegal

In June 2016, Judge Scott Skavdahl of the District Court of Wyoming ruled that the Obama administration’s fracking rules were illegal because they had not been approved by Congress.

1,247) The “most transparent administration in history” allowed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to omit meetings with political donors, foundation contributors, and corporate interests from her official calendar

In June 2016, Associated Press reported:

An Associated Press review of the official calendar Hillary Clinton kept as secretary of state identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were not recorded or omitted the names of those she met.

The fuller details of those meetings were included in files the State Department turned over to the AP after it sued the government in federal court.

1,248) A federal judge said the Obama administration had acted illegally when it used a “stingray” to find a suspect’s apartment without a warrant

According to the Huffington Post, a “stingray” is “a surveillance device that can trick suspects’ cell phones into revealing their locations.”

In July 2016, U.S. District Judge William Pauley in Manhattan said that the Obama administration had acted illegally when it used one of these devices to find a suspect’s apartment without a warrant.

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.”

Obama’s war against medical marijuana is the biggest of any president, which is the exact opposite of what he had promised

Campaign promises

In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal.

Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the “basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs” and that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”

Federal raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal

Despite Obama’s campaign promise, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal.

Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal.

In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California.

Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California.

Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal.

In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal.

In October 2014, the DEA raided two medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California.

Threats against doctors

In June 2014, DEA agents visited the homes and offices of doctors in Massachusetts who had written prescriptions for medical marijuana, and threatened to confiscate their federal licenses to prescribe certain medications if they did not stop writing prescriptions for medical marijuana.

Threats against landlords

In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. At the same time, the Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords.

Criticism from the political left

In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.”

In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record.”

In a May 2012 opinion column published by the Washington Post, Rob Kampia, the executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project, wrote, “Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history.”

In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had “strong concerns” about Obama’s forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi’s congressional district.

In April 2012, commenting on Obama’s crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, “I’m very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration.”

Obama’s own illegal use of recreational marijuana has never been prosecuted

In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama’s youth, he often smoked large quantities of recreational marijuana.  Obama’s marijuana smoking wasn’t even medical – it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from their doctors, from using their prescription medicine. How cold hearted, as well as hypocritical, can a person be?

With help from 80 years of self-described “progressives,” Obama is now waging the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president in history

Anyone who has been following the self-described “progressive” politicians since FDR should not be surprised at Obama’s war against medical marijuana.

Obama’s war against medical marijuana is a direct result of the policies of the self-described “progressives” in the White House, Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court, going all the way back to FDR’s New Deal.
