Thankfully the task has been made easier courtesy of our friend and veteran White House reporter, Keith Koffler at The White House Dossier. Have a gander:
The Top-20 Obama Administration Scandals:
- IRS targets Obama’s enemies: Primarily conservative & pro-Israel prior to the 2012 election. Why, who ordered it and was there WH involvement in the cover-up?
- Benghazi: Actually 3 scandals in one: 1) The failure to protect the Benghazi mission; 2) The changes to the talking points & the suggestion that the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video; 3) The stonewalling by the WH as to what Obama did the night of the attack.
- Spying on the AP: The DOJ did a massive sweep of Associated Press’ phone records.
- Rosengate: The DOJ named FOX News reporter James Rosen a criminal and monitored his phones and emails (as well as his mother’s!).
- Eric Holder’s Perjury #1: Holder told Congress he’d never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist but he actually signed the affidavit naming Rosen a potential criminal to get a judge to sign the warrant -and it took them 3 tires to find a judge willing to sign a warrant.
- The ATP “Fast & Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the US to get into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. Hundreds of Mexicans and 2 US Border Patrol Agents are dead as a result.
- Eric Holder’s Perjury #2: Holder knew of FF far in advance of when he told Congress he did. He was later found “In Contempt of Congress” for failure to turn over documents for the FF investigation.
- Sebelius shakes down insurance companies for donations to fund Obamacare: Totally against all regulations as her Dept oversees them.
- The Pigford Scandal: An Ag Dept effort to compensate black farmers who’d been discriminated against turned into a “gravy train” shoveling billions of dollars in cash to thousands of minority & female farmers who very likely were never even farmers.
- Govt Services Admin gone wild: The GSA held a training conference in Las Vegas costing nearly a million dollars featuring a clown & a mind-reader.
- Veterans Affairs in Disney World: More than $6 Million was wasted on 2 conferences, meanwhile waiting time for our injured and sick veterans has increased 2000% in the last 4 years.
- Sebelius violates Hatch Act: caught politicking while speaking in an official capacity endorsing a Democratic candidate for governor of NC.
- Solyndra: Nobama’s Dept of Energy funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite numerous warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. Cost US taxpayers over $6.5 Billion.
- AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA head Lisa Jackson caught using an alias (Richard Windsor) in email correspondence to avoid scrutiny.
- The New Black Panthers: DOJ refused to prosecute blatant voter intimidation at a polling place in Philadelphia by the NBP group caught on video during the 2008 election.
- Obama going to war in Lybia without Congressional approval: A clear violation of the US Constitution.
- Biden bullying the Press: The VP repeatedly interfered with press coverage, deleting photos and editing press pool reports.
- AKPD not A-Okay: The Administration paid $$Millions to a firm (AKPD Message & Media) owned by adviser David Axelrod to promote Obamacare.
- Representative Sestak bribed with prestigious White House position by Bill Clinton & Rahm Emanuel to drop out of 2010 Primary against the Administration’s favored candidate Senator Arlen Specter.
- I’ll pass my own laws: Obama repeatedly makes end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce (Immigration, NO; Defense of Marriage, NO; declaring the House recessed in order to make National Labor Board appointments, YES).
And these are just the most egregious acts committed by Barrack Obama. What will be left of our liberties and our country at the end of his 2nd term?
