Good Evening Above Top Secretions,

I seem to remember an idyllic time in the not too distant past, Bush and Giuliani were heroes, flags waving everywhere, the propaganda machine worked.
The status quo, it was comfortable, safe.
We knew where we stood on our color coded terror alert charts

now... forget it, these guys have more leaks than a sieve, and this is just what we found out about.
Imagine what the biggest spy machine in the world has still managed to keep under-wraps



This is a mind-blowingly good compendium of all the outrageousness that the Obama administration has inflicted on the American people over its five disastrous years in one long, tidy, well-sourced list.



The list keeps getting bigger every day but this is the best, cited, list I have seen.


252, jeez, and Bill Clinton got impeached for a hummer in the oral office.




1) Carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval

In June 2011, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.

2) Gave a no-bid contract to Halliburton – just like Bush did

In May 2010, it was reported that the Obama administration had selected KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for a no-bid contract worth as much as $568 million through 2011, just hours after the Justice Department had said it would pursue a lawsuit accusing the Houston-based company of using kickbacks to get foreign contracts.

3) Has an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any

While running for President, Obama had promised that, unlike Bush, he would not have any lobbyists working in his administration. However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration.

There are no sources for any of those claims, and most of them are patently false. This belongs in the hoax bin

which ones do you feel are patently false?

Read the page, there are many quotes and references, not collegiate citations mind you, or a bibliography, but easily verifiable facts

Good catch OP.. I'm replying as much to get this thread in my list for later reference as to say WOW... I hadn't kept track to think it was quite that long and distinguished. They're generally little things that come back in memory once mentioned though.

It is absolutely amazing how much has happened yet, "not happened" in collective awareness. I'd say we were getting hammered with modern and high tech variants of subliminal messaging or more to make that all so easy to pull off....but they wouldn't do things like that, right? Nawww...

I just wonder what 253 will be...or 300... or #350. I'm sure the hits will keep on coming.

90% of the complaints about Obama, he had absolutely nothing to do with.

and sone of it is ibtebtionally misleafing, i.e. Obama lied about the cost of Obamacare by saying not a single penny would be added to the deficit. The thruth is , Obamacare actually lowers the deficit.

Too many lies and propaganda to address them all. Not a shred of intellectual honesty in that blog

How much are you getting paid to post here guy?

Obamacare has already begun to put my friends health in danger by threatening to switch their lifelong doctors against their will, and upping charges and reducing services.

aoxomoxoa's using number 8:


8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough 'jargon' and 'minutia' to illustrate you are 'one who knows', and simply say it isn't so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.

Obama is just yet another puppet on TPTB stage. The US is corrupt and they kill many people here and over seas on what they try convince us is principals, when its none of our business! We know principals mean resources!!

I stopped trusting Obama the day he walked down the sidewalk after being sworn i. All cuddle like w/ Bush. I knew right then it was same #, different day/ man!!!!!

A lot of the stuff is true, but the list is padded with nonsense which exposes its bias.


27) Falsely claimed to believe in public education

Although Obama said, “We need to uphold the ideal of public education,” he expressed his true opinion of America’s public education system by sending his own children to private schools while living in Chicago and Washington D.C.


clearly an unreasonable assertion.


28) Had armed SWAT agents raid a law-abiding guitar factory because it was owned by a Republican

President Obama had armed SWAT agents raid the Gibson guitar factory, ordered the employees to leave, and seized guitars and other property from the factory – and all of this happened without any charges being filed.

It was later reported that Gibson had not broken any U.S. laws.

Obama’s so-called justification for the raid was that Gibson had broken environmental laws from India regarding the imported wood that Gibson had been using.

However, Gibson claimed that it had not broken any Indian laws – and no charges were filed against it.

In addition, it was also reported that Henry E. Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson, was a Republican donor.


speculation


53) Falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President

Obama falsely claimed to know more about Judaism than any other President.


probably an out of context quote, and who cares?


68) Announced plans to send military to Australia

In November 2011, Obama announced that he would send 2,500 Marines to Australia.


I see nothing corrupt about this.


72) Falsely said he opposed government waste, when he actually loves it

On September 22, 2008, Obama said, “I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.” However, Citizens Against Government Waste gave Obama a 2007 rating of only 10%, and a lifetime rating of only 18%.


right, he "loves" government waste.


These are just a few of the ridiculous examples in this article. I'm not trying to excuse Obama for legitimate corruption, but my point is this:

People who are critical of Obama seem to often include the preposterous as an element of their criticism. This is unproductive and can easily cause a loss of all credibility. Many people end up being written off as just tunnel vision anti Obamists using him as a scapegoat. I must admit, that sometimes I feel the same way about many critics.

Much of the criticisms directed toward this administration has more to do with problems in the entire American political system and culture. When Obama is made the scapegoat for these problems, it solves nothing.

Like I said, fair criticism is fair. But it often lacks a wider perspective.

I am the author of this list. My original blog post is at danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com...

In my original blog post, I specifically say "Every claim that I make in this list is sourced. Click on the blue text to see the sources."

I also say "If you say my list is wrong, please back up your claim by citing specific examples."

Please cite specific examples of things on my list that are "patently false."

I wrote "However, after Obama signed it, the Washington Post reported that it would add more than $340 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade."

And I cited this as my source: www.washingtonpost.com...

The title of that Washington Post article is "Health-care law will add $340 billion to deficit, new study finds."

Please explain why you think I lied about this.

Please cite your source that Obamacare lowers the deficit.

100% of the things on this list have to do with Obama. He is the big boss. He is person who either did these bad things, or who appointed the people who did these bad things. He is the person who refuses to fire the people who did these bad things. He is the person who read every bill "line by line" before he approved these bad things. Everything on this list has to do with Obama.

Liberals give Obama a pass for doing the exact same things they hated Bush for doing.

Obama lied when he said that he believed in public education. The title of the article at the original source is "Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 252 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc." danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com...

A guitar factory owned by a Republican was raided, but a guitar factory owned by a Democrat, which used the exact same wood, was not raided. Neither factory had broken any U.S. laws. And even if U.S. laws had been broken, using an armed SWAT team is going way too far.

The quote about Judaism is linked to from the list. It was not taken out of context.

We should not be sending our military all over the world. Australia? Why should we do that?

Obama loves government waste. This list is full of examples. #36 is one of my favorites. "As part of his economic stimulus, Obama spent $205,075 of taxpayer money to relocate and care for a single specimen of Arctostaphylos franciscana, a shrubbery which nurseries sell for $16."

And please remember that Obama read his stimulus bill "line by line" before he signed it.

The fact that I am the author of the list does not give me any more credibility than anyone else.

On the other hand, the fact that I cited sources to back up my claims does give me credibility.

You have still not explained why you think the Washington Post lied, or cited a more reliable source to prove that the Washington Post lied.

Until you do such things, I am going to assume that the Washington Post article is accurate.

actually it adds to the deficit....
CBO calculates numbers it's given.
CBO does not investigate.
According to latest CBO GAO reports hidden deep within the internet searches you will
find that they even report a deficit with Obama care..

Everything government calculates is off by 10 to 100 meaning it always costs 10 to 100
times more then they report.
