Obama Says He’s Had A Scandal-Free Administration


obama-scandals

Well-well. Obama says his Administration has been scandal free for eight years. That is a load of delusion he is trying to feed Americans. Sadly, the Dems probably believe that because they are loyal blind people following delusion blind leaders. The Daily Wire enumerates eleven scandals some of which should have led to an impeachment.

Obama Says He’s Had A Scandal-Free Administration.

Here Are 11 of His Scandals.

President Barack Obama—who isn’t going away after he leaves office—just unleashed this massive whopper:

Fox News 

@FoxNews

 

@POTUS: “I’m extremely proud of the fact that over 8 years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations.”

 

5:12 PM – 20 Nov 2016

 

This is demonstrably false. Obama’s presidency has been mired with numerous scandals that would be blared on the news 24/7 if he were a Republican. But because he’s a Democrat, too many people buy Obama’s argument that his presidency has been scandal-free. Here are 11 of Obama’s scandals.

 

2. Operation Fast and Furious. This egregious example of a reckless government endangering lives and then scrambling to cover it up has haunted Obama for years. As Daily Wire has explained, “Operation Fast and Furious involved the Obama administration arming drug cartels and thugs south of the border as a means to undermine the Second Amendment. The program resulted in the death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. One of the Islamic terrorists in the Garland, Texas, attack also used a gun that was obtained through the Fast and Furious program.”

 

The attempt to cover up the fatal program resulted in Obama’s first AG being held in contempt of Congress:

 

Then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for stonewalling investigations into Operation Fast and Furious, and President Barack Obama further stonewalled the investigations by wrongly asserting executive privilege.  On Tuesday, a federal judge threw out Obama’s executive privilege assertion on the grounds that the Justice Department “has already publicly revealed the sum and substance of the very material it is now seeking to withhold. Since any harm that would flow from the disclosures sought here would be merely incremental, the records must be produced.”

 

It has also been revealed that Joaquin Guzman, better known as the drug lord “El Chapo,” acquired a .50 caliber rifle as a result of Fast and Furious.

 

2. Benghazi. The terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya resulted in four brave Americans dying despite the fact that help could have been sent, but wasn’t. Requests for security prior to the attack were repeatedly denied, and after the attack Obama and Hillary Clinton falsely blamed it on a video considered offensive to Muslims. During the election, Benghazi became associated with Clinton—and rightly so—but it is also Obama’s scandal as well. It is still not known what Obama was doing that night.

 

2. The IRS targeted conservative organizations. In 2013, Lois Lerner, who directed the Internal Revenue Service’s Exempt Organizations Unit, admitted that Tea Party organizations were targeted under the agency, but blamed it on lower-level employees. Such organizations were heavily scrutinized with invasive questions. Since then, Lerner and IRS commissioner John Koskinen have denied any wrongdoing and have stonewalled congressional efforts to investigate the matter, citing computer crashes for being unable to turn over related emails.

 

Meanwhile, a federal court concluded in August that conservative groups might still be facing targeted scrutiny from the IRS. It has also been reported that the Department of Justice (DOJ) knew about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups as early as 2011.

 

4. The DOJ seized Associated Press phone records as well as phone and email records from Fox News reporter James Rosen. In the AP’s case, the DOJ was investigating a story involving “a CIA operation in Yemen that foiled an al-Qaeda plot in the spring of 2012 to set off a bomb on an airplane headed to the United States,” according to the Washington Post. The DOJ seized two months of phone records from the AP without informing the news outlet.

 

“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters,” Gary Pruitt, president of the AP wrote to Holder at the time. “These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know.”

 

In the Rosen case, the DOJ was investigating a story Rosen did involving North Korea and tracked “his movements and conversations,” according to Fox News, including phone numbers belonging to Rosen’s parents. The DOJ had listed Rosen as a “co-conspirator” under the Espionage Act in regards to the story—allegedly pressing a source for classified information. Rosen was never charged with a crime.

 

Fox News executive Michael Clemente called the DOJ’s actions against Rosen “downright chilling.” “We will unequivocally defend [Rosen’s] right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press,” Clemente said in a statement, per the Washington Post.

 

5. The NSA conducted mass surveillance against American citizens without a warrant. Thanks to leaking from former government contractor Edward Snowden, it was revealed that the National Security Agency had been conducting mass surveillance against American citizens—a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment. In 2015, the NSA eventually ended their bulk data collection of phone records.

 

6. The Obama administration paid ransom to Iran for hostages, and lied to the American people about it. As the Daily Wire has explained, the Obama administration claimed that they were giving a total of $1.7 billion to Iran to settle a failed arms deal with the previous Iranian regime, and it just happened to coincide with the release of four American hostages. The Obama administration also didn’t reveal the details of the agreement to Congress. It was obvious though that it was a ransom deal and the Obama administration lied about it.

 

7. Hillary’s email scandal.Clinton’s use of a private email server that was unapproved and unsecured has been written about extensively, but it is also Obama’s scandal as well, since it has been revealed that not only did Obama know about her private email server, he also communicated with her under the use of a pseudonym. If their email exchanges involved classified information, then Obama also would have violated the Espionage Act.

 

8. The Environmental Protection Agency poisoned a Colorado river. The EPA breached the Gold King mine in the state and “mistakenly dug at the bottom” as well as didn’t test for pressure, leading to “three million gallons of toxic mine waste” being dumped into a river, according to The Daily Caller. The EPA has not been held accountable for this.

 

9. The EPA also broke federal law in promoting a regulation. The Daily Wire reported in 2015 that the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office concluded that the EPA broke the law in using Thunderclap to tout their “Waters of the United States” regulation as well as their use of “hyperlinks to the [Natural Resources Defense Council] and Surfrider Foundation webpages provided in the EPA blog post.”

 

10. The GSA scandal. The General Services Administration was busted in 2012 for spending $823,000 on an extravagantly decadent conference in Las Vegas, and it became a shining example of government waste. Several people in the agency were fired, with one facing an indictment. Despite the scandal, lavish spending still occurred within federal agencies under the Obama administration.

 

11. The Secret Service scandal. The Secret Service was caught in 2012 engaging with prostitutes during a trip to Cartegena, Columbia, with one Secret Service agent emailing another: “Swagg cologne-check/Pimp gear-check/ Swagg sunglasses-check/Cash fo dem hoes-check.” They “also left sensitive government documents unprotected in their Cartagena rooms,” according to The Daily Caller.

Do Americans Care about the Wicked Web Woven to Deceive?


Web of Deception

John R. Houk

© June 5, 2016

 

Most Conservatives are very aware that President Barack Hussein Obama is a liar as well as his Executive Branch flunkies. The Dems and the American Left have been making excuses for those lies by denial of the obvious, deceptive misdirection and/or cover-ups.

 

That is how Obama was elected in 2008: recall the lies of being a Christian for nearly a quarter century under the Black Liberation Theology racist Jeremiah Wright, friendship with homegrown American terrorist Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn (Weather Underground), mentorship of Communist Frank Marshall Davis (See DTN for details on Davis-Communism), secretive and still undisclosed academic records, the lack of clarity if his Mother and Muslim Stepfather made him an Indonesian citizen while living there going to a Muslim school and undoubtedly more lies and deception I cannot think of at the moment.

 

AGAIN lies secured Obama’s reelection in 2012: i.e. the lies about Libyan military weapons shipped to unvetted Syrian rebels fighting Assad’s regime and the probable cover-up that led to four Americans being murdered by organized Islamic terrorists. The cover-up included blaming an obscure anti-Islam movie trailer that parodied Mohammed’s bloodthirsty sex life. The same lies also included then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Obama web of deception

As part of the Obama Administration lies, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegally used a private email server that included the use of emailing classified information. Hillary’s misdirection was other Secretaries of State used private email servers but failed to mention that most of Secretaries did not have restrictive laws in place. Hillary’s next misdirection was claiming nothing on her server was marked as classified at the time but only later. That deceptive lie was used even knowing that the potential emailing of information that might later be marked classified was and is illegal by law. Hillary also ILLEGALLY deleted thousands of emails trying to cover-up her blatant misuse of a private email server that combined both sensitive (later marked classified) and business dealings that included nefarious foreign fund raising for the Clinton Foundation in exchange for Hillary favors. Here are three journalistic claims of illegality by Hillary:

 

 

 

 

Trust me there are more lies and cover-ups but I want to get to the one in which the Obama Administration has been caught lying to the American people and to Congress about the Iran Nuke Deal which was only a deal for Iran with zero plausible vetting by the U.S. government. Most auspiciously the Iran Nuke Deal lies were exposed by Ben Rhodes flapping his mouth either unintentionally or “braggadociously” that lies were used on Americans to gain the deals acceptance. AND the cover-up was further exposed when the admission happened that some mysterious person ordered a portion of a Press Conference exchange between State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki and Fox News correspondent James Rosen was deleted from public viewing.

BREAKING: State Dept. Drops BOMBSHELL About Cover-Up… They Were ORDERED To Do It

 

By Conservative Tribune

Hat Tip: Right Alerts

Little more than a month ago, senior Obama adviser Ben Rhodes let slip, either unwittingly or braggadociously, that he and others had essentially lied to the media and American people about the Iran nuclear deal in order to advance the administration’s narrative.

 

This admission raised a number of questions regarding the truthfulness of prior statements from Obama officials about the deal, compelling some to go back and check archived video of past press conferences, which in turn led to the discovery that a pertinent exchange during a 2013 State Department press conference had been edited out of the record.

 

That edit of an exchange between Fox News reporter James Rosen and then-State spokeswoman Jen Psaki, in which she admitted with a wink and a nod that the administration lies to keep certain information private, was initially dismissed as nothing more than a “glitch.”

 

However, it has now been admitted by spokesman John Kirby that the edit was no glitch, but a deliberate erasure of the record on orders from on high in the administration.

 

Speaking to the crew of Fox’s “The Five,” Rosen said it was “significant” that the administration effectively admitted to lying about covering up a prior admission of lying.

 

“I think this is a significant moment insofar as we have the United States government essentially admitting here that its spokespeople lied from the State Department podium, that they then admitted that from the State Department podium, and then tried to cover up that admission by deleting the official archive of this material, and so I’m honored to play some small role in holding our public officials to account, and we’ll see if this is the end of it,” Rosen explained.

 

However, the new-found truthiness of at least one member of the Obama administration only went so far, for while Kirby admitted that the edit to the tape had been ordered, he claimed not to know who had given that order.

 

Rosen and the rest weren’t buying that excuse, though, with Rosen surmising, “If you remember being asked to do it, you probably have a very good chance of remembering who asked you to do it.”

 

“The Five” co-host Dana Perino, former spokeswoman for the Bush administration, thought Rosen was too nice in his assessment of the situation, saying, “I think that their explanation falls well short of acceptable, because one, it is a violation of the Federal Records Act. It has to be.”

 

This administration lies, the lies about lying, then lies about lying about lying. Then, on the rare occasion that it actually slips up and tells the truth, it quickly reverts to lies and subterfuge to counteract and cover up the truth with more lies and deception.

 

This from the “most transparent administration in history” no less.

Case Against Holder

 

Prosecute Holder Lying - Yes or No

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Justin Smith writes about the Scandals that have discredited and probably point to felony crimes perpetrated by Attorney General Eric Holder. Justin somewhat takes the approach of they get what they deserve toward a Free Press investigation of the Associated Press (AP). As a Conservative I feel like joining Justin and say “Waaaa” because the Liberal AP’s hero – the Obama Administration – turned on them. On the other hand if the AP begins to push back against Holder and his boss Obama I have no doubt other Left Media Outlets would follow the AP’s lead. And since Holder also signed warrants to investigate Fox News and their correspondent James Rosen (and Rosen’s parents) Obama might be in some actual trouble with other scandals that have popped up. And who knows – with scrutiny now placing Obama and minions under a microscope perhaps more nefarious scandals will come to light.

CORRUPT

 

By Justin O. Smith

Justin Facebook Notes

 

For the past two decades, the bulk of the liberal press, such as the Associated Press, The New York Times and The Washington Post, have removed any pretense of being anything else other than a partner of the Progressive Democrats and their communist, anti-American agenda. They have failed to censure Attorney General Eric Holder… the most corrupt person in the most corrupt administration in American history… when he misused his power regarding the 1965 Voter Act and the Black Panthers, during the Fast and Furious ATF/Mexican gun-running scandal, in immigration matters and in numerous terrorism cases. They have lost any semblance of fairness and journalistic integrity, as they have failed on numerous occasions to fulfill their essential role to serve the Truth and the American people. So, it is hard for me to give a sincere damn over the AP’s plight, now that they have been targeted by an unrestrained Holder Justice Department and cried “Foul!”

 

The AP’s trouble began after they printed a story on May 7, 2012 about a foiled Al Qaeda terrorist plot in Yemen to bomb an airliner. The AP held the story for five days before finally receiving CIA clearance to run it; then the AP was asked to hold it one more day, because the White House wanted to release it first. The AP declined, since national security was not the issue.

 

Although innocent in the 2012 case, the AP has long attacked America’s national character and our American Heritage, and much too often they have given aid and comfort to America’s enemies. In 2005 the AP followed The New York Times lead and pushed a story that disrupted a program monitoring cell phones that Al Qaeda had bought in Switzerland, and six months later, they both exposed a program that tracked funding for terror attacks!

 

Holder said that the leak connected to the 2012 AP case “put the American people at risk”, but the facts point towards politics and this administration’s need to make the facts fit their narrative, especially since the records sweep went far beyond any one news article. Laura Malone, general counsel for the AP, released a letter from Ronald Machen, U.S. attorney, that detailed the seizure of “all such records for, among other phone lines, an AP general phone number in New York City as well as AP bureaus in NYC, Washington-DC, Hartford-CT and the House of Representatives; more than 100 journalists work in these offices (AP), and many of these bureaus and reporters had no connection to the leaked story.

 

Under normal circumstances, the Department of Justice is required to give advance notification to news organizations, in order that they may have time to have any forthcoming subpoena halted by a judge. However, regulations also allow for exceptions, in which case journalists must be notified within 90 days.

 

In June 1971, The New York Times started publishing a series of damaging internal documents, “The Pentagon Papers”, provided by Pentagon analyst Daniel Ellsberg and also partially published by The Washington Post. Solicitor General Erwin Griswold argued before the Supreme Court that the publication of the papers would effect the nation’s security adversely. And, while Justice Hugo Black held that the government could not stop such publications of illegally gained documents, the government could still constitutionally try, convict and punish editors for violating the Espionage Act if they did publish classified material; no one has a constitutionally protected right to publish the U.S. governments secret documents.

 

Eric Holder described the AP article as among “the top two or three most serious leaks that I’ve ever seen” in a 35 year career, and yet, this is the same man who dropped charges against former DOJ lawyer Thomas Tamm; Tamm leaked information to The New York Times, during George W’s administration, about a wiretapping program designed to intercept terrorist calls between high level Al Qaeda operatives in Pakistan and their contacts in the U.S.; a vital program was compromised, the Times received the Pulitzer Prize, and thanks to Holder, Tamm suffered no consequences!

 

Currently, New York Times journalist David Sanger is thought to be the focus of the investigation of disclosures made about a joint American-Israeli effort to sabotage the Iranian nuclear weapons program, which obviously crosses a red-line. Also, Sheryl Attkisson, CBS reporter, suspects the DOJ of hacking into her computer; and, while James Rosen has been a known target of the Holder DOJ, typically past administrations, including George W’s, have focused on those who violated their oath to protect classified information.

 

Sheryl Attkisson, CBS reporter, is only one of hundreds who believe that they have come under the scrutiny of Eric Holder. She has repeatedly asked Obama tough questions on Fast and Furious, Benghazi and the IRS. She has performed the job of a reporter, in the manner it was meant to be done. So now, the liberal media have dubbed her “the Pit Bull” and accused her of having a political agenda… as if they don’t… for reporting proven facts!

 

James Rosen, Fox News reporter, was labeled a possible “co-conspirator” and defamed then in 2010 and now as the story resurfaces, simply because he reported on a planned missile launch by North Korea in response to the UN Security Council’s condemnation of its nuclear tests. The “classified” status of this information was dubious at best, since the North Korean leadership was already screaming about it to anyone who would listen.

 

Eric Holder grossly abused his position, power and the law in the manner in which he applied the Espionage Act in order to investigate James Rosen. As he took this case to three different judges before receiving approval for a warrant, he also had to make a leap into fantasy to get from Mr. Rosen’s so-called crime of “employing flattery and playing to Mr. Kim’s (Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, State Dept security advisor) vanity and ego” to an “aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator” in the leak. And, Holder outright lied before the House Judiciary Committee repeatedly, as he replied, “I don’t know” to any question pertaining to this investigation and whether or not he ever sought to “personally prosecute any journalist” under the Espionage Act; on May 22, NBC News reported Eric Holder personally signed off on the search warrant, which reportedly even included monitoring the phone lines of Rosen’s parents in Staten Island: Attorney General Eric Holder must be fired and criminally prosecuted!

 

If the House Judiciary Committee determines that Eric Holder lied under oath, he is gone… he should have been dismissed long ago on Fast and Furious alone. Until then he will remain, because he is a personal friend of Barack Obama, who believes that Holder is a vital agent in the “fundamental transformation” of America; however, Obama has shown no reluctance in the past to cast aside anyone in his administration that he considered a liability to his agenda of creating a post-Constitutional America and an all powerful State.

 

From the very beginning, the Associated Press and other liberal media refused to thoroughly check the background of Obama and his associates or hold them accountable for a litany of unConstitutional acts, and now they are reaping what they have sowed. America has witnessed an administration that does not mind using its full weight of power to interfere with our First Amendment Rights on many levels, and one must doubt Obama’s sincerity when he states, “And I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable”; however, whatever the final judgment, journalists and government officials both are charged with the moral imperative to find the line and balance between national security and the people’s right to information. And, if Obama is really “concerned about information that could compromise their missions or might get them killed”, as he refers to Americans in hazardous posts, he should charge Holder with the mission to prosecute Vice-President Joseph Biden for leaking the information that made SEAL Team Six a primary target for Al Qaeda and ultimately led to the entire Team’s death!
