Obama’s 2008 Campaign Promise of the most transparent government in U.S. history and yet five years of a plethora of scandals are obviously being covered up directly and/or indirectly within very the White House itself.
Just in case there are too many scandals for you to remember proving Obama’s “transparency” is a load of crap here is a list courtesy of the American Maverick (6/25/13 – I include the posting date because unless Obama is impeached and removed from Office, his thumb at the Constitution will continue until 1/20/17):
Barrack Obama’s Top Scandals and Thuggery:
o Operation Fast & Furious: The White House and Attorney General Eric Holder stone walled Congress’ investigation about the release of arms by federal agents into Mexico. Congress placed Eric Holder under contempt charges for his contradictions. To this day, these arms have been used by cartels to advance drug trafficking and kill civilians.
o Obamacare: Yes, this is scandalous. Obama explicitly stated he would hold open hearings about his health care proposal. Obamacare was rammed through a Democrat controlled House and Senate. Democrat Harry Reid held the final vote on Christmas Eve when Americans were focused on the holiday. Democrat Nancy Pelosi stated they would have to vote on the bill before the public would know what was in it. Well, the problem was a vast majority of Congress was unaware of what Obamacare would unleash on America. America will hit the roof in 2014 when mandates kick in.
o Benghazi-gate: Obama was AWOL when decisions needed to be made to rescue Ambassador Stevens, two Navy Seals and a State Department staffer in Libya. Congress has exposed many facts that lead to orders from the Executive branch for the military to stand down any rescue efforts. The administration continues to shield over 20 State Department staffers that were at the U.S. Consulate during the attack on September 11, 2012. Also, do not forget that Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State during this period.
o Hurricane Sandy-gate: Obama promised to cut through government red tape to get funding for shelter and provisions to those impacted by the hurricane. To this day there are thousands of Americans in New Jersey and New York coastal areas who have yet to receive funds from FEMA to provide housing. Where is the media scrutiny as was the case with hurricane Katrina?
o Oppression of the Press: The Department of Justice took measures to watch and intimidate members of the press. Under the guise of national security, Eric Holder authorized measures leading to the probing of many reporters of the Associated Press and Fox News. The DOJ searched for judges to authorize wiretapping warrants to observe reporters business and personal communications.
o IRS Targeting of Conservative Organizations: Bipartisan hearings by the House and Senate have held hearings to investigate the IRS for intentionally restricting conservative based groups from receiving tax status. IRS officials actually admitted targeting groups. Ties to the White House are firming up. Obama initially attempted to deflect any wrong on a small IRS office in Cincinnati.
o Sibelius-gate: You probably did not hear about this in the mainstream media. Congressional hearings concluded that Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius broke federal law for campaigning and fundraising for political candidates while in a (sic) official capacity in 2012.
o Privacy-gate: Measures taken by the White House re-authorized and expanded the ongoing ability of the National Security Agency to track and record communications of American citizens. A clear challenge to citizens rights under the Fourth Amendment to privacy and search and seizure. NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s revelations further exposed the power of big government to access civilian information. The NSA continues to collect data on over 300 million Americans, everyday (sic).
Folks, there is NO TRANSPARENCY THERE!
Now I am bringing this up because of an insightful post written by Craig Andresen and posted at Stepping Up and Speaking Out – Lady-Patriots.com. Craig’s article zeros in on Benghazigate. In my book Benghazigate rates among the top three scandals from the lying Obama Administration:
2. Privacy-gate or NSA-gate
3. IRS Targeting Conservative Organizations
Now those are the top three scandals in my book to date. Polls and other Conservatives may rate the order differently or add and subtract from my list but NO MATTER how you look at it, President Barack Hussein Obama has been lying to America. Benghazigate and IRS Targeting lies are instrumental in getting Obama reelected in 2012.
Benghazigate lies at the outset tried to make a scapegoat of Islamophobes and the source Islamophobe scapegoated was an Egyptian Coptic Christian – or is he Coptic? – (Nakoula Basseley Nakoula) of perhaps dubious criminality of nothing to do with Islamophobia who made a poorly put together yet fairly accurate movie about Islam’s prophet Mohammed.
Craig Andresen brings the clarity by looking at Obama Administration excuses followed closely by some good old fashioned American gotcha – Bull Crap.

Benghazi – Covering Up TREASON with a Scandal
By Craig Andresen
August 22, 2013 09:05
Did anyone but me catch the attempted distraction yesterday?
The only thing transparent about this administration is their corruption.
Just 2 days ago, three of the four mid-level State Department employees, singled out in the Accountability Review Board (ARB) official BENGHAZI REPORT, as being primarily responsible for the shortcomings OF the State Department which led TO the attacks in Benghazi…WERE REINSTATED.
The 4th, Eric Boswell, assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security had already resigned from his position.
Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant security tasked with embassy security…Scott Bultrowicz, the former director of diplomatic security and Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, who was responsible for the entire North Africa region…HAD been placed on ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE…a PAID VACATION while socialists, a complicit lapdog media and this insipid administration TOUTED the THOROUGHNESS of the Pickering report.
Now…THOSE 3 HAVE BEEN SENT BACK TO WORK BY SECRETARY OF STATE, JOHN KERRY WHO SAYS, HE COULD FIND NO WRONGDOING BY THEM!!!
Okay, so…WHICH IS IT???
THEY WERE EITHER PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE OR…THEY DID NOTHING WRONG!!!
YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!!!!
Now, it seems…NOBODY in the State Department did ANYTHING wrong and just as that comes out, James Clapper at the NSA makes public MORE spying on Americans as a DISTRACTION.
Those placed on administrative leave were nothing but diversionary scapegoats. THEY were given up to Darrell Issa and the House Oversight Committee for NO OTHER REASON than to PROTECT HILLARY CLINTON AND HER POSSIBLE RUN FOR THE WHITE HOUSE IN 2016!!!!!
OUR security was drawn down in Benghazi and nobody is responsible for that?
Our enemy, Ansar al-Sharia was HIRED to do security in Benghazi but nobody is responsible for THAT?
Memos and emails were ignored regarding the need for more security in Benghazi and nobody is responsible?
The calls for MORE security in Benghazi were DENIED and nobody is responsible for that EITHER???
As the attacks were in progress, nobody from State demanded assistance and NOBODY IS RESPONSIBLE????
SOMEBODY WAS RESPONSIBLE AND, HILLARY CLINTON, THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE ASKS…”WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?????”
4 Americans DIED in Benghazi, we’re closing in on the 1 year anniversary and so far…
NOT ONE SINGLE MEMBER OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT…NOT ONE SINGLE MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM…NOT ONE SINGLE MEMBER OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF AND NOT ONE MEMBER OF THIS MUZZI HUGGING ADMINISTRATION IS RESPONSIBLE???
This is outrageous.
More outrageous still, is the notion and the FACT that OBAMA and his puppets would DARE call BENGHAZI a “PHONY SCANDAL!!!!!”
Who couldn’t bear to watch the bin Laden raid after the situation room photo op and left to play cards…DISAPPEARED from that SAME situation room just 20 minutes into the attacks in Benghazi and NOBODY knows where he was for 8 hours???
Somebody issues orders NOT to send special ops to rescue those trapped in Benghazi and NOBODY KNOWS WHO???
SOMEBODY comes up with the COCKAMAMY story that a YOU TUBE VIDEO was the cause of the Benghazi attacks and…NOBODY KNOWS WHO CAME UP WITH IT???
The FBI has to cool THEIR heels in TRIPOLI for 3 weeks because it’s TOO DANGEROUS to be where JOURNALISTS roam freely in BENGHAZI?????
Survivors, mostly CIA employees have been threatened and given lie detector tests to make sure they are not talking about what went on there that night.
Whistle-blower, Gregory Hicks…WHO TESTIFIED AND TOLD THE TRUTH…was DEMOTED.
AND OBAMA HAS THE UNMITIGATED GALL TO CALL AMBASSADOR CHRIS STEVENS…SEAN SMITH…GLEN DOHERTY AND TYRONE WOODS…
“BUMPS IN THE ROAD???”
HE SAYS WHAT HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI WAS…”NOT OPTIMAL???”
AND LABELS THE INVESTIGATION AND SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH…
“A PHONY SCANDAL?????”
Obama “led from behind” and supplied weapons to Libyan “rebels” who he KNEW were al Qaeda in the effort to oust Gaddafi and TENS OF THOUSANDS of those weapons, including MISSILE LAUNCHERS and RPG’s WENT MISSING.
It’s better than a fair bet that THOSE VERY WEAPONS were used by ANSAR al-SHARIA…AL QAEDA IN THE ARAB PENINSULA…AGAINST OUR OWN PEOPLE IN BENGHAZI but nobody is responsible huh?
It’s also better than a fair bet that the CIA was RUNNING WEAPONS from BENGHAZI through the Turks TO SYRIAN ‘REBELS”…AGAIN…AL QAEDA…OUR ENEMY IN A TIME OF WAR…and nobody knows what was going on there???
Those actions, undertaken by OBAMA are…
HE WAS GIVING MILITARY AID AND WEAPONS TO OUR ENEMIES IN A TIME OF WAR…FOR GOD’S SAKE!!!
It is time for the utterly useless John Boehner to sit down, shut up and get the hell out of the way and for Darrell Issa to appoint a SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE…Put former prosecutor TREY GOWDY in charge of it and GIVE THAT COMMITTEE SUBPOENA POWERS!!!
Start hauling the prime suspects…Hillary Clinton, Patrick Kennedy, John Brennen, General Dempsey and OBAMA in…Give immunity to all those CIA survivors… and KEEP THE DAMN THING IN SESSION…ON CSPAN… 24 HOURS A DAY IF NECESSARY UNTIL WE HAVE ANSWERS AND THE TRUTH!!!!!
And while you’re at it…HAUL IN THAT DODDERING OLD FOOL…THOMAS PICKERING…The author of what we now know to be a LYING STACK OF PAPER…The ARB report and find out WHY HE DIDN’T INTERVIEW HILLARY CLINTON OR ANY OF THE OTHERS IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT WHO HAD TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT LED UP TO THOSE ATTACKS!!!
That putz didn’t even bother to record, on video or audio…A SINGLE INTERVIEW!!! HE HAD A NOTE TAKER WITH HIM. FIND OUT WHO THAT WAS AND DRILL THAT PERSON FOR SOME TRUTH!!!
Clearly, laws are being broken as the IRS has been used as a political weapon against one segment of our populous.
Clearly, laws are being broken, thousands of times a year as the NSA spies on all Americans.
CLEARLY, laws were broken in the Fast and Furious gun running and at least one American has died as a result of it.
Clearly LAWS and the CONSTITUTION are being IGNORED and SUBVERTED as OBAMA continues to give Obamacare waivers to his political friends and delay key provisions of it against the written law itself and CLEARLY We the People will LOSE our 4th Amendment RIGHTS if this horrific law is allowed to be funded along with having the already UNLAWFUL IRS being tasked to ENFORCE it.
THIS IS TREASON and the COVER UP of it has…LONG AGO…Reached EPIC PROPORTIONS!!!
4 Americans…SET UP and LEFT THERE…ABANDONED… DIED that September night and it’s been nearly a year…WITH NO ANSWERS…NO TRUTH AND NOBODY HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT LED UP TO IT OR FOR THE ATTACKS THEMSELVES!!!
THOSE TERRORISTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTACKS THEMSELVES NEED TO BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE AND…
THOSE WITHIN THIS ADMINISTRATION’S REGIME OF LIES AND TREASON, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS WHICH LED TO THOSE ATTACKS AND THE TRANSPARENT COVER UP OF THEM…
NEED TO BE TAKEN TO PRISON!!!
Obama Lies! Gullible Americans Eat it Up?
