Obama’s “Phony” Scandals

By Rock Peters

Democrat Donkey Scandals Train SC Obamas Phony Scandals

“With an endless parade of distractions, political posturing, and phony scandals, Washington has taken its eye off the ball,” Barack Obama said in a speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill. on July 24, 2013.

“If four Americans get killed, it’s not OPTIMAL.”–Obama’s calloused, abnormally detached, and incredibly narcissistic response to Comedy Central’s John Stewart’s question about the changing story of the Benghazi attack.

Does Obama think that the Muslim terrorist attack on our consulate in Libya on 9/11/2012 didn’t really happen and that four Americans (Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and Ty Woods) weren’t actually murdered?

The Obama Laundry List of Phony Scandals

 

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement, and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

2. Benghazi: This is actually three treasonous scandals into one:

a) The failure of the administration to protect the Benghazi mission.

b) The Obama administration changed the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video.

c) The intense stonewalling, complete shutdown, and absolute refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack.

d) Breaking 200 plus years of honorable American military tradition to never leave any solider behind.

3. Spying on the the AP: The Justice Department stole a plethora of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

4. James Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

5. The Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress that he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when, in fact, he personally signed the affidavit that alleged Fox News reporter James Rosen was a potential criminal.

6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” debacle: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes (including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.)

7. Holder Perjury II: During congressional hearings held on May 3, 2011, Congressman Darrell Issa asked AG Eric Holder when he first knew about the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scheme. Eric Holder replied under oath: “I am not sure about the exact date but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” Holder flat out lied to Congress under oath;”Project Gun Runner” (Fast and Furious) was launched by Obama with Holder’s full knowledge on March 24, 2009. Holder is guilty of perjury and should be arrested.

8. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius runs an extortion racket: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

9. The Pigford scandal: A U.S. Agriculture Department effort that began as an …read more

Obama Administration Kills “Change”

By Don Irvine

obama fail4 Obama Administration Kills “Change”

The Sunlight Foundation, which tracks government transparency, noted in its blog on Thursday that the Change.gov website that was set up by the Obama transition team in 2008 was shut down sometime last month.

Even though the transition effectively ended when Obama took office in January 2009, the Change.gov website continued to list “the materials and agenda” laid out by the administration, according to Sunlight. But no longer.

Sunlight speculates that the reason for the disappearance of the website may have to do with the promises the administration made to protect whistleblowers, which may now be more of a liability, as it has struggled to keep its promises of transparency.

The Foundation managed to dig up what used to be on the website, thanks to Internet Archives.

Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.

No hope, no change—just a bunch of empty promises.

Obama Keeps His Promise…

By Dr. Kevin "Coach" Collins

Obama Promise of Change SC Obama keeps his promise...

In a surprising acknowledgement of the truth, the Associated Press has reported that “Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.” The damning report, based on what the AP calls exclusive survey data, continues with “…the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend.”

Given Barack Obama’s latest “pivot” toward the problems of unemployed Americans – which by some accounts was his 19th announced such “pivot”- the AP’s swerve into the truth is encouraging.

Obama’s pious speeches emphasizing that his highest priority is rebuilding the “ladders of opportunity” aside, the AP’s reports  that whites now see their futures evaporating on his watch. White Americans (who are 68% of our population) are more pessimistic today than at any time in the past 25 years, with over 60% of white Americans describing our economy as “poor.”

In a rarely seen and very stinging acknowledgement of the truth from our mainstream media, the AP reports that white insecurities and economic fears are “more pervasive than is shown in government data..” More than 75% of whites who are at or near 60 years old suffer anxiety over their financial future.

Other important findings from this “cat out of the bag” report are equally damning of Barack Obama’s fraudulent “fight for America’s [white] middle class.”

  • More than 19 million whites are living under the $23,021 per family of four poverty line.
  • Poor whites in America make up 41%, or double that of poor blacks.

This is not to say that non-whites are free from economic worries: The AP also reports that 90% of non-whites feel themselves to be financially at risk. Nevertheless, the biggest increases in the rate of poverty by ethnic group are being experienced by whites, with 76% enduring at least some periods of joblessness or dependence on public assistance during their lifetime.

The statistics included in this report are stark refutations of Obama’s claims to be working to make our lives better. He ran on a promise to fundamentally change America, and he is fulfilling his promise. Those who voted for him and the media who lied for him are getting what they voted for. Now even his cheerleaders at the Associated Press have started to report the truth. Maybe that light at the far end of the tunnel is sunlight; but maybe it’s another truck driven by Obama. Time will tell.

Get Ready For The All-Hail-Hillary Movies

By Breaking News

Hillary Clinton speech 9 SC Get Ready for the All Hail Hillary Movies

I wasn’t surprised to learn that sometime before the 2016 election, NBC will be releasing a four-hour miniseries about Hillary Clinton starring Academy Award nominee Diane Lane. What did surprise me was that the series will cover none of her life before the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which took place five years into her husband’s second term as president and when Hillary was already 51 years old. It’s as if her first half-century will be airbrushed away, along with the many scandals that dogged her in those decades.

While the series will still have a lot of ground to cover — impeachment and the “vast right-wing conspiracy” she suspected, her successful 2000 Senate race, her loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 primaries, her time as secretary of state and her role in the Benghazi debacle — it’s striking that so much rich material will be excluded even before footage is discarded on the cutting-room floor.

Just consider what we’ll be missing.

Health-Care Gate: In 1997, federal judge Royce Lamberth levied $286,000 in sanctions against Bill Clinton’s administration for “running amok” in a “cover-up” of Hillary Clinton’s health-care task force. The scandal began when deputy White House counsel Vincent Foster made contradictory assertions about the first lady’s job status, in an attempt to keep the work of the task force secret. Foster later committed suicide, and a Secret Service agent saw Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carry boxes of papers out of Foster’s office before investigators showed up to seal it.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton To Meet For Private Lunch On Monday, White House Announces

By The Huffington Post News Editors

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will join President Barack Obama for lunch on Monday, the White House Press Office announced Sunday evening.

The noon appointment, which will be held in the President’s private dining room, is closed to the press. The White House did not disclose the purpose of the meeting. However, as with anything related to Clinton these days, discussion in the media will likely circle back to one topic: 2016.

Several prominent Democrats have already voiced their support for another Clinton presidential run. In May, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) called Clinton the “best qualified” person for the party’s nomination. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) commented last week that Clinton would “handle things probably even better” in the White House than her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Big Labor Finally Getting The Shaft From Democrat Politicians

By Doug Book

labor unions SC Big labor finally getting the shaft from Democrat politicians

It seems big labor is getting nervous about anticipated disastrous effects on the healthcare benefits of union membership by Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. So nervous are they in fact that James P. Hoffa and organized labor comrades Joseph Hansen and Don Taylor addressed their concerns in personal letter form to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, a clear break from the more conventional late night exchange of cash and instructions so common between labor kingpins and Democrat politicians.

“We can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members,” wrote the 3 union bosses to leaders of the political party to which organized labor donated some $800 million in 2008 and $700 million two years later. “Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it.” Though Hoffa didn’t specifically include “When we buy politicians, we expect ‘em to STAY bought,” the implication was clear enough.

Four years ago, there were no more vocal or committed supporters of Obama’s signature healthcare plan than organized labor. But now, Hoffa and the others are whining that “…the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.” Yet none of the damaging contents of the Affordable Care Act have changed during the past 4 years. So why is labor suddenly in a panic?

The ObamaCare employer mandate requiring that employers of over 50 full time (40 hour/week) workers provide healthcare or pay a stiff penalty is being met with a sudden influx of part time employees. In fact, part time hires are outpacing full time in 2013 by over 4-1, a complete reversal of employment figures for 2012. This destruction of the 40 hour week complained of by Hoffa means fewer dollars for employees and a black eye for unions paid to protect their interests.

But of greatest concern to labor bosses are the multi-employer or Taft Hartley health plans currently carried by some 22 million union members. Unions pride themselves on their ability to provide these Cadillac health plans to members at reasonable prices. (Employers of course pay the bulk of the tab.)

However, as ObamaCare requirements are certain to drive premium prices sky high, employers will counter by dropping the plans when unions contracts expire,  placing members in the individual, ObamaCare exchange market. Once placed in the ObamaCare market without insurance, employees will qualify for subsidies.

BUT, why join a union or maintain membership if one of the principle reasons–the long-term availability of first rate healthcare at very reasonable prices–no longer exists?! One of the biggest draws for joining a union is being taken away from big labor, and they do NOT like it!

So Hoffa and other labor bosses now want to have their cake and eat it too–they are demanding that members be permitted …read more

Video: Document Expert Could Topple The Obama Administration

By Kris Zane

There have been many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President—most based on the fact that Obama is not a natural born citizen, his father being a Kenyan. Other lawsuits challenge the validity of Obama’s PDF long-form birth certificate, riddled with strange anomalies like multiple layers and eight different fonts.

The lawsuits have all crashed and burned in flames for two reasons: 1. The court hearing the lawsuits have treated the cases as a joke instead of a valid question of Constitutional requirements. And 2. The plaintiffs haven’t had Reed Hayes on their side.

Reed Hayes is a forensic document expert who may be the man who finally brings down the Obama administration.

In an extensive and scathing forty page report on Obama’s birth certificate prepared for the upcoming eligibility lawsuit before the Alabama Supreme Court, Hayes concludes the following:

…Based on my observations and findings, it is clear that the Certificate of Live Birth I examined is not a scan of an original paper birth certificate, but a digitally manufactured document created by utilizing material from various sources. In over 20 years of examining documentation of various types, I have never seen a document that is so seriously questionable in so many respects. In my opinion, the birth certificate is entirely fabricated.

You might be saying: Okay, there has been something like two dozens lawsuits. They’ve all failed. The court and Obama’s lawyers always deem any experts against Obama’s birth certificate as quacks. So what’s different this time?

Two words: Perkins Coie.

Sound familiar? It should. It’s the law firm that has represented Barack Hussein Obama in virtually every single eligibility court challenge.

And guess who has done extensive work for and testified on behalf of Perkins Coie?

Forensic document expert Reed Hayes, whose abridged list of training, experience, and court cases goes on for a dozen pages.

How will Obama’s lawyers discredit a forensic document expert that their own law firm extensively relied on?

Answer: They won’t be able to discredit him. If they do happen to try to discredit him, every single case Perkins Coie has employed Reed Hayes for will also be discredited.

How’s that for a catch-22?

But that isn’t the half of Obama’s problems.

The gaggle of Perkins Coie lawyers will be arguing that Obama is eligible to be President before the Alabama Supreme Court, with none other than Roy Moore presiding as Chief Justice. Moore is a conservative and strict constitutionalist who has voiced his concerns in the past regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President. In fact, he is the judge who supported Lt. Colonel Terry Lakin’s refusal to deploy to Afghanistan until Obama provided proof that he was a natural born citizen.

Oh, but there’s one more problem. A very big problem: Obama’s lawyers have produced a birth certificate in their brief to the Alabama Supreme Court. Problem: It differs from the birth certificate Obama released on April 27, 2011!

Whoops!

Will Barack Hussein Obama again slither out of another legal challenge to his eligibility?

“Self-defense Shouldn’t Be Practiced By The Common Folk”

By Doug Book

gun control sign SC Self defense shouldn’t be practiced by the common folk

“Under no circumstances should people be able to confront others in a hostile manner, end up using deadly force, and escape punishment.”  Such is the far from unconventional viewpoint of UCLA Law Professor Adam Winkler. But it’s not the doings of actual thugs and lawbreakers that worry the professor. His concern is about people who “take advantage” of Stand Your Ground laws, laws which according to Winkler “unambiguously authorize people to pursue and confront others” and encourage vigilantism.

Of course, the professor is not alone in spreading his deliberately false description of the contents of Stand Your Ground legislation. Three days after the George Zimmerman verdict, AG Eric Holder told members of the Orlando NAACP that “’stand your ground’” statutes can ‘undermine public safety’ and ‘victimize too many who are innocent.’” They are laws that “senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.” That there is no evidence Stand Your Ground legislation now in force in over 30 states actually brings about the Wild West vigilantism so feared by the Attorney General doesn’t prevent his making the claim that self-defense-minded killers are everywhere poised and ready to strike.

But why is the left so adamantly opposed to legislation that does away with the requirement to retreat first when faced with a potential threat of great harm? (By the way, most Stand Your Ground laws simply do away with the requirement to retreat. They do not grant a new “privilege” to needlessly obliterate an attacker.)

The reason is that liberals recognize the danger inherent in news of an average citizen successfully exercising his right of self defense. Allow the spread of stories in which a victim turns the tables on his attackers, and suddenly, people become skeptical of placing responsibility for their safety and security in the hands of a far off policeman.

And for a left that believes that only the police and other approved, government officials should have the right to carry a gun, it is especially the defensive use of firearms that causes panic. For how can liberals square as many as 2.5 million yearly uses of firearms in self-defense with their agenda of disarming the American public?

The Regime’s current, focused attack against Stand Your Ground legislation should fool no one. For it’s the right of the American people to defend themselves–even with deadly force–that the left considers the real threat to their authority. In Britain, self-defense has become virtually illegal, a crime worthy of prison time. Imagine how envious the likes of Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Chuck Schumer must be of the otherwise hated English politicos. With self-defense a punishable trespass, official members of law enforcement would become the public’s only legal means of protection. And who would be in charge of this, the only legally armed force with official authority to act in our best interest? Liberal mouths would be watering all over DC at the prospect of such power.

Will The IRS Scandal Finally Lead To The White House?

By Breaking News

Darrell Issa SC Will the IRS Scandal Finally Lead to the White House?

House Oversight Committee hearings on IRS targeting of Barack Obama’s political enemies resume on Thursday. Fox News reporter Carl Cameron strongly hinted on Wednesday evening that Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has uncovered testimony that will bring the scandal right up to the White House door. (Hat tip: Gateway Pundit.)

The Daily Caller has a preview of what’s on tap in the new hearings. It looks like the star of the show will be IRS lawyer Carter Hull:

Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsel’s office, headed by Obama appointee William J. Wilkins, and Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the IRS’ exempt organizations office, in the IRS targeting scandal and made clear that the targeting started in Washington, according to leaked interviews that Hull granted to the Oversight Committee in advance of Thursday’s hearing.

Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George will return to Republican chairman Darrell Issa’s committee Thursday along with two central characters in the IRS saga: Hull and Cincinnati-based IRS employee Elizabeth Hofacre, who previously gave Hull’s name to congressional investigators, fingering him as her Washington-based supervisor.

Video: Obama’s Secret $8 Billion Bribe To The Muslim Brotherhood

By Kris Zane

According to Arabic News Channel TV14 and reported on by Egypt Daily News, Obama’s relationship with recently deposed Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi goes far deeper than mere support as a democratically elected President.

Per TV14, Obama conducted secret negotiations with Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood outside of normal diplomatic channels.

According to sources cited by TV14, Obama secretly transferred eight billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood—not the Egyptian government—as payment to guarantee that a large portion of the Sinai Peninsula be turned over to the terrorist organization Hamas, an avowed enemy of both the United States and Israel.

The secret agreement was signed by deposed Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi and his second in command, Khairat el Shater.

Who on the U.S. side signed the agreement and where Barack Obama got the eight billion dollars is not clear. When Mohammed Morsi was deposed and arrested by the Egyptian military, evidence of the secret agreement was discovered and seized.

Further, per the news segment, which has been uploaded to YouTube and has since gone viral, secret negotiations between Obama and the Egyptian military—specifically Colonel Abdul al-Sisi, head of the Armed Forces—were ongoing to ensure the agreement remained hidden. Per the secret negotiations, in exchange for Obama recognizing the Egyptian military as legitimate, Colonel al-Sisi promised to keep Obama’s illegal agreement with the Muslim Brotherhood secret. However, a source within the Egyptian military leaked Obama’s nefarious activities to TV14 and the world.

If Obama’s secret agreement with the Muslim Brotherhood is proven correct, it may spell the end for the Obama administration once and for all. Obama may have illegally siphoned off funds from the US Treasury and committed treason by attempting to turn land over to Hamas, a group that is not only an enemy to the United States, but has vowed to destroy every Jew on the face of the earth. If Obama’s nefarious plan would have been realized, Hamas’ control of the Sinai Peninsula would have put Israel in an indefensible position and would have led to a second holocaust.

If proven to be true, this would go far beyond the Constitution’s requirement of High Crimes and Misdemeanors as a basis for impeachment. It would mean treason, possible life in prison, or even the death penalty for Barack Hussein Obama.

The Election Of A Black President Has Meant Nothing

By Breaking News

Barack Obama speech 8 SC The Election of a Black President Has Meant Nothing

The greatest hope most Americans — including Republicans — had when Barack Obama was elected president was that the election of a black person as the country’s president would reduce, if not come close to eliminating, the racial tensions that have plagued America for generations.

This has not happened. The election, and even the re-election, of a black man as president, in a country that is 87 percent non-black — a first in human history — has had no impact on what are called “racial tensions.”

In case there was any doubt about this, the reactions to the George Zimmerman trial have made it clear. The talk about “open season” on blacks, about blacks like Trayvon Martin being victims of nothing more than racial profiling and about a racist criminal justice system, has permeated black life and the left-wing mainstream media.

I put quotation marks around the term “racial tensions” because the term is a falsehood.

This term is stated as if whites and blacks are equally responsible for these tensions, as if the mistrust is morally and factually equivalent.

Eligibility Resurrected: Congress Pays Attention

us capitol building SC Eligibility Resurrected: Congress Pays Attention

The dispute over Barack Obama’s eligibility captured the imagination of the American public with stunning revelations, lawsuits, a best-selling book and, finally, the release of what was described as the “original” birth certificate from Hawaii in an attempt to silence the doubters.

Since that time, it’s been mostly Obama’s defenders gloating and deriding anyone who questions the official narrative as so-called “birthers.”

That might change soon, according to the lead investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse in Arizona, which was assigned to do a thorough investigation of the document posted by the White House as Obama’s birth certification.

Lt. Mike Zullo told WND there is interest being expressed in Congress about the investigation’s conclusion that the White House document is fraudulent – an image created on a computer.

A contingent of citizens in Maricopa County had asked Arpaio to look into the issue because they were concerned an ineligible candidate would be on their 2012 presidential election ballot.

Myanmar leader embarks on trip to London and Paris

President Thein Sein left Myanmar on Sunday for a visit to Britain and France, an official said, as the former junta general looks to build on support for his much-lauded reforms.

“The president left Yangon this morning to visit Britain and France,” a government official told AFP without giving further details of the visit, Thein Sein’s second trip to Europe in months.

Another official earlier said the trip would be from July 14 to 18.

Thein Sein visited several European countries in March — although not Britain or France — to bolster relations.

The former general has surprised the international community by overseeing sweeping reforms since taking the presidency in 2011.

Those changes include freeing hundreds of political prisoners and welcoming democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi and her political party into parliament.

The European Union, which had already ditched most sanctions except an arms embargo, has readmitted Myanmar to its trade preference scheme, saying it wanted to support reform in the once-pariah state through economic development.

Washington has also lifted most embargoes and foreign companies are now eager to enter the resource-rich nation, with its perceived frontier market of some 60 million potential consumers.

Barack Obama paid a first-ever US presidential visit to Myanmar last November, and Thein Sein visited Washington in May.

Senators Caving To Obama’s EPA Nominee

By Breaking News

gina Senators Caving To Obama’s EPA Nominee

Right now our nation is almost falling apart and it seems that no one has any backbone to stand up not just against Barack Obama, but all those that he places into office! From what has happened in recent times, with the many scandals and little action being taken on them, it now seems that maybe the people in Congress should just stay home. Perhaps they should not collect a penny, because none of them seem to care or even think of what will happen next week much less 20 years from now because of their inaction. Senator David Vitter (R-LA), a recent power to be dealt with, now seems to be caving to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) nominee Gina McCarthy because she answered questions right! Come on now, once she gets into her office, she will do just as Obama tells her to do! Yes, both sides are now almost a total waste for being in Washington, D.C. unless they have the big names with them; the common people do not really matter.

Let us take an early example of this with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) when she voted not to make English the national language. Now let us jump forward to today and check out Senator David Vitter and what he is about to do. Senator David Vitter, along with others, are now thinking of allowing Obama to have his EPA head so he can continue to stop coal, oil, and natural gas!

Just today we learn that Senator David Vitter whom once had stated that he would filibuster her nomination, is now thinking of confirmation her.

We have to wonder just what is Senator David Vitter giving up to do this?

We asked his office and we got no comment, leaving us to wonder why the change of heart and why the support of someone who will be used to destroy the coal industry, put people out of work and help to cause energy prices to skyrocket. What did they get in return for their not stopping the nomination because we do know that most of the time something is given up or given away when a vote switches? We just have to wonder anyway just what good is Congress since Obama seems to be able to not just ignore the Constitution, but do as he pleases, much like a Dictator rather than a President.
