Scandals Of The “Not Scandalous” Obama Presidency
The Obama Administration mouthpieces have been incredibly busy as they are embarking on a peculiar scheme to continue the infusion of an eight year false narrative; hoping to continue their persuasion that the Obama Administration has been an administration of transparency free of scandals.
Rational Americans are not convinced by their media pushed propaganda that all is fine and well on Pennsylvania Avenue, but unfortunately the easily persuaded still believe to this day that Obama is the most wonderful president in American history. They rejoice to the sound of the Obama cohorts, convinced by the parrot like behavior of the continual statements by the mainstream media that the administration hasn’t had any scandals.
We will attempt to turn back the clock and walk through some of President Obama’s most notorious scandals during the 8 years of his presidency.
The Stimulus and Shove Ready Jobs:
The Obama administration grabbed almost a trillion dollars as a stimulus to supposedly nudge the economy into growth, creating instant jobs and giving 95% of Americans a tax break. This stimulus created virtually no jobs, allowed a great deal of money to be unaccounted for, with the rest spent on his presidency; meanwhile, complaining that he needed hundreds of billions more for infrastructure repair.
For the American people, Obama then added insult to injury by putting Vice President Joe Biden in charge of finding and accounting for the money. In the end, the American people ended up footing the bill for a small army of government jobs and a lavish amount of slush fund play money for the Democrat party, along with all their allies from America’s unions.
Operation Fast and Furious:
Current President Obama supporters seem to all suffer from the same logic and that logic is that because Obama was never impeached, that somehow he and his administration is scandal free.
Operation Fast and Furious was the most bizarre scandal of the administration to date, as they used gun dealers and purchasers as a “straw man” approach in order to arm Mexican drug lords.
The body count includes Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata, plus many Hispanics living in Mexico, as well as the victims at the Paris Bataclan theatre attacks, where at least 130 people were killed using weapons that have been traced back to US gun dealers.
Breitbart reports that “it is difficult to imagine any Republican administration surviving anything remotely close to Fast and Furious.”
They further state, “The media would have dogged a Republican president without respite, especially when it became clear his Attorney General was putting political spin ahead of accountability and the safety of American people.”
As sinister it is to fathom the many innocent lives that were lost, it is equally as sinister to consider that this was the President and the Secretary of State’s attempt at yet another attack to whittle at American’s Constitutional Second Amendment Rights.
Eric Holder-Contempt of Congress:
Former Attorney General Eric Holder was found to be in Contempt of Congress as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. This is a scandal within a scandal for the reason that Holder’s being held in contempt of Congress makes American history because Holder was the “first sitting member of a president’s cabinet in the history of the United States” to have this happen.
Of course the Democrats and the White House protected Holder. He was also allowed to spin the narrative of the contempt vote “as mere political theatre.”
Who can forget the words “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” by President Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s famous quote to Americans [re: ObamaCare] “We need to pass it to find out what’s in it?”
ObamaCare was sold to the American people by crooked and dishonest politicians, a dishonest president, and by dishonest media hype. It was a scam, plain and simple. It is very wrong to dismiss ObamaCare as a failed policy because it was never a policy with good intentions that somehow went miserably and accidentally wrong like an Amtrak train accident.
The Supreme Court rewrote ObamaCare on the fly, not once, but twice in order to keep it alive. This is a scandal in and of itself. President Obama delayed and rewrote the “law” so often that it was almost impossible to keep track of any and all changes; however, someone did keep careful care to track changes and the changes totaled up to 70 distinct changes by January 2016.
The highly politicized Internal Revenue Service was allowed to selectively target conservative groups. The Democrats acted like preschoolers during the Congressional hearings even though the IRS admitted wrong doing.
Because of this, the hard facts are somewhat fuzzy. However, what is known is this: Pro-Life and Tea Party group applications for tax exempt status were delayed inevitably (most of them until the 2012 election) and also these same groups’ income tax information was given additional scrutiny.
This particular scandal was like an Atomic bomb landing right in the middle of President Obama, his administration, and the Democratic party’s laps.
The attacks on Benghazi were multiple terrorist attacks on a United States CIA annex as well as the consulate that a United States Ambassador by the name of Chris Stephens and his body guard were using as temporary living quarters. The attacks during the famous 13 Hours (a book written by the Secret Soldiers of Benghazi) were excused and dismissed as a video and multiple of other deceitful excuses by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In fact, President Obama has yet to account for his whereabouts that night or any decisions that were made; especially the decision of why Americans were left behind and four men died. Mark Geist, Kris Paranta (Tanto), and John Tiegen have been very outspoken and adamant that they were given stand down orders; that the attack on the consulate that resulted in the death of Ambassador Stephens and Sean Smith would have resulted in lives saved.
Additionally, it has never been completely explained why extremely delayed support was given to Benghazi, with the delay directly resulting in the deaths of two Navy Seals, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, Mark Geist was also severely injured by the heavy artillery strikes resulting in him having at least twelve surgeries to repair his arm.
But that’s not all:
Other Obama Administration scandals include Hillary Clinton’s private email server, Bowe Bergdhal, NSA spying, spying on journalists, the never forgettable Iran deal, polluting the Colorado River, the GSA scandal, Veterans Affairs death list scandal, Solyndra, the Secret Service gone wild, and the great government shutdown.
The scandals that have been detailed all happened during the first four years of the Obama Administration. The claim that both himself and his Muslim Brotherhood sidekick, Valerie Jarrett have made about the administration being transparent and scandal free are ludicrous in their own right. Houdini couldn’t have pulled off the scandals that Obama has pulled off and gotten away with.
If anything, scandal is the one thing that has hung over President Obama and his delusional cronies for eight years like a category five hurricane off the coast of Florida. How they can say anything different and keep a straight face is scandalous in itself.
