Run, Carney. Run!

The Obama Administration’s corruption is staggering. After overlooking the misuse of stimulus funds for Obama’s political cronies and the nomination of political donors for influential public positions (including John Kerry), even MSNBC is stunned: “MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Monday the new fundraising efforts of President Obama’s dark money group, Organizing for Action, calling a scheme for high donors to meet regularly with Obama “the definition of selling access.” Todd was describing the quarterly meetings that will be enjoyed by OFA’s $500,000 donors.”  Disturbingly, “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”

Hilariously, “the organization’s leadership has been courting corporate donors” and Chuck Todd has expressed confusion over the fact that Obama (while campaigning) said he believed that “money has a strangle hold over the entire political system.”

And it gets funnier: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney ran away from the podium while reporters were still questioning him about this issue, after failing “to defend this arrangement” and “implausibly stating that the Obama group is somehow not related to Obama.”

Fiscal Cliff Deal: ANOTHER Obama disaster.

Obama lied during both presidential campaigns when he promised that “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.” The fiscal cliff deal raises taxes on 77.1% of U.S. households.

It turns out that Obama didn’t just lie– he actually coerced Congress into passing the 154-page fiscal cliff bill 3 MINUTES after receiving it on the fiscal cliff deadline of January 1, 2013 (since Obama failed to make any progress on the fiscal cliff negotiations and pushed the precarious economic situation out to the last minute).

The bill included gifts for Obama’s thoughtless supporters: Super-rich Hollywood got a tax break (despite record box office profits in 2012), as did NASCAR, algae growers, and rum producers (among others): at a cost of $100 billion in lost tax revenues for the U.S. government.

To add insult to injury (to the United States democratic process), “In a move that is rich in irony, President Obama agreed Tuesday night to sign an emergency deficit reduction bill that does almost nothing to rein in spending and then jetted out to Hawaii to resume his vacation at an extra cost of more than $3 million to taxpayers. The price tag is in addition to more than $4 million that is already being spent on the Obamas’ Hawaii idyll, bringing the total cost of the excursion to well over $7 million.” In an even more condescending move, Obama jetted off for his extended Hawaiian vacation without even bothering to sign the fiscal cliff bill that he pressured Congress to pass at the last minute.

After this entire mess, was the problem solved? NO. “President Barack Obama scheduled another so-called “fiscal cliff” crisis for February by announcing late Jan. 1 he would refuse to negotiate any curbs on his use of the nation’s maxed-out credit card.” So get ready for February 2013!

Update: Obama supporters are ‘shocked’ and ‘angry’ that Obama raised their taxes.

Another Update: Obama mainly harmed low-income Americans by increasing payroll taxes in January 2013– “When asked how their financial situation had changed in January, 32 percent of people with incomes below $75,000 said their pay had dropped, compared with 13 percent who said it had increased. By contrast, 38 percent of people earning more than $75,000 said their wages had gone up last month, and 23 percent said they had gone down. “Mostly it was the payroll tax hurting the lower incomes, while higher-income folks had a boost from things like dividends.””

Obama nominates another loser for his new Cabinet

After nominating an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Defense Secretary, Obama will nominate current White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as the new Treasury Secretary (can it be any more obvious that Obama’s nominations are political favors?).

In response, the top Republican in the Senate Budget Committee says: “Jack Lew must never be Secretary of Treasury… His testimony before the Senate Budget Committee less than two years ago was so outrageous and false that it alone disqualifies… To ‘look the American people in the eye’ and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during my entire time in Washington.”

Weirdest scandal ever.

First, CIA Director David Petraeus resigned two days after Obama’s re-election over an “extramarital affair” with his biographer.  Conveniently for Obama, Petraeus had been scheduled to testify in front of Congress next week about the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya– and now that Petraeus has resigned, he won’t be testifying. Now, it turns out that Petraeus had personally investigated the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, and we won’t hear vital information that could have blown the lid off of the Obama Administration’s obvious cover-up of this national security failure. It’s also been revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is going to resign, so it’s doubtful we’ll hear anything about Benghazi from her either. All we have to go on are the words of the father of Petraeus’s “mistress,” who implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.

Update: The scandal gets worse for Obama– because Petraeus actually gave honest testimony to Congress on November 16th. He admitted that he “knew almost immediately after the September 11th attack, that the group Ansar al Sharia, the al Qaeda sympathizing group in Libya was responsible for the attacks” despite his prior Congressional testimony that the attack at the U.S. Consulate in Libya began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim youtube clip.  Petraeus has now testified that the CIA’s talking points to the media and the American people were edited to downplay the terrorist connection.  While intelligence officials say they don’t know who changed the CIA’s talking points, what’s clear is that Obama benefited from Petraeus’ false testimony in September 2012. During the 2012 presidential election, Obama continuously asserted that Al Qaeda was ‘on the run’ while his supporters chanted “bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.’  Because of Petraeus’ false testimony, Obama could claim that his reaction to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was justified based on the intelligence available at the time.  Furthermore, Obama was able to deny the occurrence of another Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil for 2 weeks before Election Day.  A mere two days after Obama got re-elected, Petraeus’ extra-marital affair was exposed and Petraeus was thrown under the bus by the Obama Administration.

“Transparent” Obama stops releasing stimulus reports

The self-proclaimed “most transparent administration in the history of our country” has stopped releasing monthly stimulus reports as the November election approaches. The Obama Administration “is now four reports behind schedule and has so far not released any reports whatsoever in 2012.”


Updated: This isn’t surprising, considering the massive cronyism and corruption that was involved in the expenditure of stimulus funds (even beyond prior revelations of wasted stimulus funds such as “$71,000 for researchers at Wake Forest University to see how monkeys react under the influence of cocaine”
): Now, we learn that “an analysis of public records by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has found more than $20 million in federal stimulus funds benefitting real estate projects financially tied to Joseph Shepard, husband of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.”

The SEIU’s agenda = Obama’s agenda

Obama tells the corrupt and scandal-ridden “Service Employees International Unions” (SEIU) in this video clip: “Your agenda is my agenda.”

Obama is the #1 most unpatriotic President in U.S. history– red, white, and blue? No, Obama instead vows to “paint the nation purple” as he leads an SEIU chant.

ACORN shaped Obama’s agenda

Caught on video: Obama told the corrupt and scandal-ridden “Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now” (ACORN) that it would “shape his agenda” if he was elected U.S. President.

Congressman is forced to drop his investigation of ACORN

Democrat Congressman John Conyers, Jr. abandoned his plan to investigate Obama fundraiser ACORN for wrongdoing after “the powers that be decided against it.” Hmmm I wonder who told him to give ACORN a free pass? It doesn’t take a position on the Harvard Law Review to figure it out.

Obama fires AmeriCorps watchdog

Obama fires independent Inspector General Gerald Walpin for investigating Obama supporter Kevin Johnson, who stole money from an $850,000 AmeriCorps grant to “pad staff salaries, meddle politically in a school-board election, and have AmeriCorps members perform personal services for Mr. Johnson, including washing his car.”

Obama’s corrupt/criminal anti-American friends

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor for the past 20 years who also married Obama and his wife Michelle, says blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.” In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.

Also, Obama is friends with Bill Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist who was part of the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement. In 2001, Bill Ayers told the New York Times, “I don’t regret setting bombs; I feel we didn’t do enough.”

In yet another scandal, it’s been revealed that Obama has ties to Tony Rezko, who has been indicted by a federal grand jury in a case that prosecutors say involves bribes, kickbacks and “efforts to illegally obtain millions of dollars.” Rezko helped Obama get a house deal in Chicago shortly after Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate.
