The journey of 1000 miles begins with taking the first step

As I reflected over the past 8 years, all we’ve been a part of, fought for and against, Â the list became so long it shocked even me! I realized that there were no doubt many who, like me, had long ago filed away countless actionable issues and offences committed by Obama, his minions and administration, in order to make room for the more egregious ones now occurring in rapid succession, to the point that many have become desensitized to all but the utterly outrageous. It is because of this realization that I’ve compiled the following rather extensive list, and a road map for the direction we need to be headed in going forward.
The journey of 1000 miles begins with taking the first step, many of us have been on the move for years as we’ve fought these battles. The time has come to stop walking, and start running.
Interviews with high school classmates revealed that Obama was a heavy and frequent user of marijuana in his teenage years (not to mention his self-admitted cocaine use in college).
Voted to allow post-birth abortions (i.e. facilitating the deaths of babies who survive late-term abortions) not just once but three times in a row as an Illinois state senator.
It was revealed only after Obama became president that during the 1990s he was a leading member of the â€œNew Party,â€ a socialist-aligned far-left radical group in Chicago.
Lied about his close associations with former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers; pretended the two barely knew each other, when multiple sources document they were friends and close colleagues for years.
When Obama was inaugurated as President on January 20, 2009, he at first flubbed the oath of office, so he had to re-take it behind closed doors for his inauguration to be valid. He did so, but during this second, true inauguration in private, he purposely failed to place his hand on a Bible, as is traditional â€” the first president ever to not swear the oath of office on the Bible.
Obamaâ€™s own author bio in his literary agentâ€™s catalog and on their Web site stated for 17 consecutive years that he was born in Kenya; this claim remained intact despite other portions of the bio being altered and updated repeatedly. It was only in 2007 after he decided to run for the presidency that the â€œborn in Kenyaâ€ claim was taken down. The original info must necessarily have come from Obama himself; some theorize he likely falsely claimed foreign birth in order to gain admission or scholarships in college, and never bothered to fix his lie.
After winning the 2008 election but before being sworn in, Obama bombastically concocted the official-seeming â€œOffice of the President-Electâ€ as if it was some kind of real government department; in fact, it was just a self-congratulatory title he made up to look important before he actually became president.
Since 2008 the Los Angeles Times has been in possession of a videotape showing Obama honoring and praising anti-Western anti-Israel academic Edward Said, but they have steadfastly refused to release it to this day, for no discernible reason other than their belief it would damage Obamaâ€™s reputation.
Prior to becoming president,Â Obama spent 20 years listening to a racist anti-American pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whom Obama described as a mentor on March 18, 2008 Obama gave a speech in which he said I could no more disown Jeremiah Wright than I could disown my own grandmother and rights church, Trinity United embodies the black community in its entirety. Now Obama tries to pretend the Jeremiah Wright doesn’t exist and that his extremist anti white philosophy didn’t influence of Obama’s worldview.
Before he entered politics Obama worked as an attorney in Chicago with Acorn suing banks inÂ landmark cases forcing them to give home loans to unqualified minority borrowers- a practice now understood as one of the primary initial causes of the eventual housing bubble and market collapse.
During his campaign in 2008, he made a commercial in which he promised to enact extraordinary environmental restrictions due to the effects of global warming, (effects which later were proven completely false when the entire “global warming”Â narrative was found to have been a complete hoax)Â that he knew would bankrupt the coal industry, which he clearly stated in the commercial.Â Now, as those very coal mines close down due to these unreasonable unnecessary restrictions, and those working in them throughout Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky are left without jobs, and worse, without options, he lies to them about his true intent.
Obama pretends to be concerned about skyrocketing energy prices, when in fact he vowed to increase them on purpose so as to make alternative energy schemes more competitive.
In a primary debate against Hillary Clinton in 2008 Obama said he would never force people to buy health insurance. Since those without it couldn’t afford to buy it anyway. Less than two years later he rammed through Obama care in the middle of the night, committed fraud against the American people by promising no fewer than 37 times on national television that if you liked your current insurance you could keep it, if you liked your doctor, you could keep him, and that Obamacare would save EVERY insured person $2,500 per year in premium costs. All the while, knowing full well that In reality,Â as of October 1, 2013 he indeed would force people to buy health insurance that is more expensive, has higher premiums,Â thousands of dollars higher deductibles and copays,Â covers less than the insurance they had previously, Â doesn’t allow Americans to keep their doctors, and in many cases any hospital within a 4 hour drive, and those policies they were supposed to be allowed to keep?… well the Obama administration forced insurance companies to cancel those policies, and force those people into Obamacare that they can’t afford, and NEVER wanted.
Â Â 2008
Shovel ready stimulus weighing in at nearly $1 trillion. This money just evaporated with no measurable economic benefit.
Occurring almost simultaneously with the stimulus was the auto industry and union bailout at a cost of 25 to 30,000,000,000 depending on whose numbers you go by.
Wasted billions of tax taxpayer dollars on green companies like Solyndra,Â Nextera, Ener1 , Solar trust and many others, all of which went bankrupt.
He greatly expanded the number of unaccountable “czars,” which essentially amounts to unilaterally adding new federal departments with no congressional oversight or approval.Â Leading to a true “bureaucracy” in the original sense,Â (rule by unelected bureaucrats.)
Obama appointed Van Jones, a former of loud communist and convicted felon who supported a 9/11 truth petition to be the green jobs czar.
He also appointed a unneeded done, who said Chairman Mao was her favorite philosopher to be White House communications director.
He then appointed John hold, rent, who previously entertain the notion of forced mass sterilization to stop overpopulation to be the science czar.
Appointed Steven Chu, who openly advocated an artificial increase in gasoline prices to $10 per gallon and similar increases in other energy prices to be secretary of energy.
Appointed Kevin Jennings, who led a group that promoted X-rated sex positive textbooks for 13-year-olds instructed teenagers at a conference how to perform testing anal penetration by fests who refuse to report instances of statutory rape and who expressed admiration for a member of NAMBLA, to be America’s safe schools Czar.
After completely ignoring the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico for more than five days, then refusing the help of four of other countries who had the equipment and capabilities of assisting he’d been shot down all oil drilling in the Gulf, allowing other nations with worst environmental records to drill there instead, thereby managing to both weaken our economy and damage the environment simultaneously.
Obama instructed Atty. Gen. Eric Holder to stonewall any and all investigations into voter intimidation case against the new Black Panther party for an incident which occurred in 2008 at the voting polls.
Cash for clunkers which doled out taxpayer money to anyone who wanted to replace their old cars, but which mostly only ended up subsidizing the purchase of foreign-made cars by people who could’ve afforded them on their own. Anyway, meanwhile the traded cars were all destroyed Creating a shortage and thereby increasing the cost of used cars.
In both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, the Obama campaign purposely disabled the credit card verification system for its website, donations, allowing anyone from any foreign country to donate with no limit and no proof of identity in both elections. It was demonstrated that people overseas and people with obviously false identities were able to donate to the Obama campaign, indirect violation of several campaign-finance laws. To this day. It is not known what percentage of Obama’s campaign funds were it legally obtained since there is no documentation.Â Since Obama obviously can’t run for office again. All of that money that was left over, went it was rolled into his organizing for America super pack and some indications are that those funds are intermingled with activities that are going on in conjunction with the selling of the Obamacare nightmare.
Now, within just these things I’ve mentioned thus far, ( as if that’s not enough,) but let’s consider just these cost wise, theyÂ amount to several trillion dollars of taxpayer money that has gone to Obama, his friends, his campaign supporters and minions He came to depend upon and be in debted to throughout this entire charade.
For example, the auto industry bailout, the money went largely to the unions, which were of course very significant contributors to the Obama campaign and to the Democratic Party.
The shovel ready stimulus jobs that never materialized, were supposedly created predominantly by companies owned by or somehow tied to the global warming hoax, and all the liberal friends of Obamas, and the Democratic Party , who have all become filthy rich as a result of the hoax, in addition to high dollar donors and campaign finance/funding bundlersÂ most of whom have been amply rewarded for their undying devotion to Obama in one form or another.
Many reliable sources have found that the campaign-finance money which came from overseas came from Middle Eastern sources using credit cards like the ones you might buy at target, Walmart, etc.
false names were given false addresses and, of course, false contactÂ and employment information. Therefore, when it was discovered Â that these contributions had been made illegally There was no way for that money to be returned anywhere. Consequently, it was of course rolled into Obama’s super pack organizing for America..
In a youTube videoÂ reported December 14, 2013. Maxine WatersÂ said the following;Â “The president has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. Rep. Maxine Waters told toÂ Mark Martin on Monday. That’s going to be very, very powerful Waters said, that database will have information about everything and every individual in ways that is never been done before. And whoever runs for president on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that they’re going to going down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it, and if he’s president Obama, He’s been very smart. It’s a very powerfulÂ What he’s leaving in place.”
Couple this statement with the Expose’s done by Project Â Veritas producer James O’Keef, In keeping with similar productions which began under Andrew Breitbart’s outspoken, Bold and daring wing, on 1 December 2013, O’Keef exposed multiple instances of illegal activity dissemination and selling of personal information gleaned Â from Obama care navigators affiliated with, or loosely associated with Obama’s organizing for America super pac. Put this information together with that of the IRS and NSA databases, both of whichÂ have foundÂ to have had a history of leaking protected private, personal information to unauthorized entities, and you pretty much have exactly what Maxine Waters is talking about.
Illegally gained information that now is free to be used by any campaign or candidate,Â and included in any database for use by any future campaign or candidate on the Democratic side, who of course is the highest bidder..
I guess when you’re the president of the United States, Â not only are existing laws and constitutional protections of any consequence to you,Â but you can get away with making and/or breaking whatever laws you choose without so much as a thought. Funny, but I don’t recall that being the case when Richard Nixons actions were called into question, apparently though, as with all things,Â whereÂ OBAMA is involved, it’s “different”.
Just this should have been enough to launch a large-scale investigation and bring the Obama regime down, but, it didn’t…mainly because far too many people opted to stick their heads in the sand and pretend it wasn’t happening,Â in hopes “someone else” would stick their necks out, and place them on the chopping block so that you wouldn’t have to. Many tried doing exactly that, many lost their heads… (But I’ll talk more about that a bit later) and yet, Â so many still refused to step forward even to just say, “NO!! ENOUGH!”
As a result, there is more… oh so much more… we haven’t even begun yet, these things just barely touch the tip of the iceberg, it gets way worse, so much worse in fact, thatÂ by the time I’m through, I’ll very likely have you near tears, unable to sleep from the guilt you feel if you are amongst those I previously mentioned, and this was at least in part caused by YOUR lack of action, as you realize most of this could have been avoided. YOU could have stopped it. YOU could have done something, YOU could have stood, but you chose not to.
I’m hoping, that by the end of this I will have reminded you of enough of these outrages to FINALLY spur you into action. To flick on the switch in your head that causes your blinking red “I’ve had enough and I’m not going to take anymore” warning light to come on, and the nuclear disaster warning sirens to blare relentlessly inside your head and refuse to shut off until you get up, get busy and start fighting for your life, and your country. Â Because though I and others have been telling you constantly for the past 6 years this day was coming, warning you of its arrival, those warnings apparently fell on deaf ears even while all of this was happening around you, with the proof of it falling squarely at your feet and making its way inside your homes.
Next there was an internal refusal to enforce federal immigration laws or to protect our southern borders at the same time we had fast and furious, which involved Atty. GenÂ Eric Holder, ICE, the DEA., as well as Obama, resulted in, international gunrunning, drug cartels, human trafficking, torture, decapitations, the deaths of two border guards, countless civilians, and over 300 Mexican nationals to date. This government sponsored illegal gunrunning scheme was designed to purposely go awry, so as to induce a strong public outcry for gun control, and enable the Obama Administration to ignore American Citizens second amendment rights to bear arms and take away their guns.
Ongoing congressional investigations into fast and furious Directed by Congressman Darrell Â Issa continue even now, because they have been met with delays, Â refusals to comply with information and document requests, Â refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas, constant stonewalling, hundreds of thousands of pages of pertinent information, that were completely redacted. The Atty. Gen., lying to Congress, being caught, and as a result, being found in contempt. Â The White house claiming “Executive privilege where none rightfully exists, and yet still, even with all of this, no justice has come of it,Â no answers have been forthcoming for the families of those who have died because of it.
Unemployment has been at or above 8% for almost Obama’s entire term in office, which is actually closer to 15% unemployment because the numbers have been habitually manipulated and skewed by the Obama administration and their minions to suit their narrative D’jour.
Obama increased the percentage of Americans dependent upon food stamps, to an unprecedented level . Now reaching over 1/6 of the nation’s population, nearly 22 million Americans.
In 2011 Obama intervened militarily in Libya without the congressional approval required by the war Powers act. Technically, this is was an impeachable offense.
Obama has handed out over 1200 waivers to politically connected donors exempting them from the onerous requirements of Obama care.
Obama illegally ended the welfare to work requirements passed by Congress.
He alienated and isolated Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East and repeatedly ignored and blew off meetings with their Prime Minister.
He embarked on a tour of the Middle East, apologizing to Islamist and terrorists for America having offended them, and did so while speaking in their language, rather than in English.
Under his watch. For the first time in history. America’s credit rating was downgraded due to his poor economic policies and continues to threaten being downgraded yet again.
Obama violated the U.S. Constitution by authorizing assassinations and drone strikes to kill American citizens abroad, without due process.
He was caught on a hot mike, promising the president of Russia that he would cave in to their demands for a weaker missile shield after he was reelected, because then, he would no longer have to keep up the pretense that he cared aboutÂ defending our country.
When states like Arizona and New Mexico voted to enforce the federal immigration laws which the federal government refused to enforce Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, sued to stop them.
Obama has continuously blocked continued construction of the Keystone pipeline thereby intentionally reducing energy resources for the US and forcing Canada to sell more of its oil to China.
Before he became president Obama was staunchly opposed raising the national debt limit, in fact, he said it he that he considered it to be unpatriotic/un-American and yet once elected He has insisted that it be raised four times.
As the states enacted voter ID laws in order to stop increasing instances of election fraud, under Obama’s direction Eric Holder, the Atty. Gen., sued the state’s to prevent them from doing so.
He also vowed before elected to end the influence of lobbyists in Washington, but under Obama’s watch their influence has only increased.
In conjunction with this, recall Obama’s cries for transparency when he was first running for president, he promised, “I will not sign any nonemergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days. ” Needless to say he is broken that promise with almost every bill. He is signed since.
Obama aided and abetted the Arab Spring, which deposed existing secular governments across North Africa, leading to a regional power vacuum, which was filled by Al Qaeda. The Muslim brotherhood and other hard line Islamists.
Also recall that In his first months in office, Obama bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia, the president of China, the Emperor of Japan and president of Mexico among others, and hasn’t stopped bowing to kiss their A**es and other since.
He ordered NASA to make one of its top priorities, not space exploration or scientific research, but Muslim outreach, as if NASA or anything it does has anything what so ever to do with “community Organizing in Muslim countries. And while I’m at it, what in the hell makes it our job to pay for such “Outreach”?
He used Obama care pretext to greatly increase the size and power of the IRS, which was given 16,000 new agents and additional mandates to penalize taxpayers forÂ noncompliance with Obama care, and even after spending over $700 million dollars to build a working web site at which people could sign up for his piece of donkey dung healthcare idea, and rolling it out on October 1, 2013, it still isn’t running correctly, can’t accept payments for insurance policies which will leave millions uninsured as of Jan 1, 2014, and is a huge security risk that allows everyone’s personal information to be accessed freely by anyone on the internet.
He then used those IRS agents to harass conservatives, conservative businesses, tea party groups, and religious organizations that were opposed to re-electing him in 2012 and/or opposed to Obamacare, by passing along secure personal information to other government offices, which were not entitled or authorized to have it, so that they too could harass the individuals and they did. This targeting and illegitimate harassment based on political beliefs continues even now.
In the GM bailout. He illegally shortchanged investors who according to bankruptcy laws were the first to dine to be back recompensed,Â Instead, he gave their share to his union friends.
Obama shut down oil drilling in the US, but then turned around and sent 2 billion dollars to Brazil to support their government controlled oil drilling effort,Â then promised the US would become one of Brazil’s biggest oil customers.
He sued Boeing in an effort to control where businesses could locate, Â kowtowed to the unions and blocked the creation of 1000 jobs in South Carolina, a right to work, (i.e. no forced unionization) state. However, thankfully, the courts ruled on the favor of what’s right and Boeing, one in the end, “this time”.
Because of his twisted narcissistic need for glory, adoration, and self-importance, Obama publicly divulged and identified which Navy seal team was involved with carrying out the operation that ultimately resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. , Obama made them a target for reprisal by Islamists, Â a short time later 22 seals were shot down and killed in Afghanistan, their worst loss of life ever. Â He then sent insulting form letters to the families of dead SEALs which HE was at least somewhat responsible for having killed .
He established an extra constitutional top-secret kill list of people, including Americans, Obama claims the right to be able to kill on-site and bragged about it publicly.
Told small business owners in a televised national speech in 2012, that they “didn’t build that” implying that they should not claim credit for their own success, Â since taxpayers i.e. themselves and other business owners had funded the national infrastructure, and therefore by Obama’s twisted conclusion, that made any accomplishment achieved mainly through the business owners hard work and consequential.
He Insulted the British people by rudely returning to them, a bust of Winston Churchill, which previously had been a ceremonial gift on display at the White House when later confronted on this inexplicable action, He characteristically lied about it Â Of course.
Canceled plans to complete a missile defense shield in Poland, leaving serious gaps in our protection against incoming missiles, a move which was highly praised by Russia. The very nation the cruise missile threat would’ve been neutralized if the shield had been completed.
Set up a special email account flake@Whitehouse.gov, to which Americans were supposed to inform the government of anyone they heard spreading disinformation about Obama’s health care overhaul. This was the first of three different spy on your friends and neighbors programs The White House put in place.
Attack watch was Obama’s second big brother attempt a website on which you would report attacks on Obama’s proposals and ideology. It was quickly shut down due to outrage and mockery.
Finally, Obama set up the truth team program which encourage citizens to report to the government any friends or relatives. They hear repeating lies about Obama, the truth team site still exists.
He Twisted the arms of defense contractors in 2012 to not issue layoff notices in early November, so as to avoid causing bad news for Obama, right before the election, even though federal law, the Warn act requires such notices.
Â After the attack on American interests in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 Obama gave a speech to the UN and declared the future must not belong to those who slandered the prophet of Islam, transferring the blame from the attackers onto makers of the film trailer that supposedly offended Islamists.
On May 19, 2011, Obama told Israel they must return to the 1967 borders as a pre-condition for continuing talks with the Palestinians â€” even though the status of the borders was the main issue the talks were supposed to address.
Encouraged politically biased hiring practices in the Justice Department.
Attempted to force returning veterans to pay huge increases for their health coverageâ€¦as a way to generate more funding for his Obamacare provisions.
In June of 2011, he anointed his own underage daughters as â€œsenior staff membersâ€ so that their vacation to Africa would be paid for with taxpayer money.
Played over 150 rounds of golf during his first term in office, meaning that he was on the links close to 10% of the days he has been president.
Obamaâ€™s Department of Energy awarded $529 million to Fisker Automotive to build their Karma hybrid electric cars â€” even though they are manufactured in Finland, cost over $100,000 each, and tend to explode.
When Inspector General Gerald Walpin discovered during a 2009 investigation that one of Obamaâ€™s political allies (the mayor of Sacramento) was misusing government funds for personal gain, Obama unceremoniously fired Walpin â€” even though rooting out fraud was the job description of the Inspector General. (luckily it was his job that was lost, and not his life.)
More than once Obama made so-called â€œrecess appointmentsâ€ when the Senate was not actually in recess, which directly violates Constitutional rules about how appointments must be made; in each case it was his way of getting his political allies into certain key positions without them being vetted or approved by the Senate, as required.
After Nidal Malik Hasan massacred 13 people at Fort Hood while shouting â€œAllahu Akbarâ€ so as to become a martyr for Islam, the Obama administration refused to classify his action as â€œterrorismâ€ and instead deemed it merely â€œworkplace violence.â€
Despite the fact that the Falkland Islands have been part of Great Britain since 1833 and that Great Britain is supposed to be our strongest ally, Obama essentially sided with Argentina in its new claim on the Falklands, not only by adopting the Argentine position that their status is open to negotiation, but even by (attempting to) refer to the islands by their Spanish name (Malvinas).
Convened the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (a.k.a. the Simpson-Bowles commission) in order to address a major economic crisisâ€¦and then summarily dismissed and ignored their recommendations.
Criticized the Supreme Courtâ€™s legal reasoning (about the Citizenâ€™s United decision) during a State of the Union address, which many considered a dangerous precedent as it appeared to place political pressure on the court, violating the Constitutionâ€™s separation of powers; but his bullying seems to have later paid off, when the Supreme Court apparently altered its Obamacare decision so as to not ruffle any political feathers.
On April 27, 2009, Obamaâ€™s staff (possibly at his direction) ordered Air Force One to make an unnecessary very low flight over part of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, which many residents mistakenly assumed must be a second 9/11 attack in progress; turned out that it was just a stunt to get a photo op of Obamaâ€™s plane next to the Statue of Liberty.
Obama somehow managed to insert mentions of himself into the official biographies of earlier presidents on the White House Web site â€” even presidents from the 19th century. After public outcry, the narcissistic Obama mentions were quietly removed without comment. Even now, Obama marks all important events and occasions, particularly memorial occasions, by having the white house release yet ANOTHER picture of himself in or around the location.
Intentionally misquotes the Declaration of Independence in speeches, often leaving out the words â€œby their Creatorâ€ in the famous passage â€œâ€¦are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,â€ which Obama instead has recited as â€œâ€¦are endowed with certain unalienable rights.â€
In June of 2009, Obamaâ€™s Solicitor General (and now Supreme Court Justice) Elena Kagan filed a legal brief to prevent the families of 9/11 victims from appealing their lawsuits against the Saudi royal family for financing the 9/11 attacks.
Compelled Catholic and other religious organizations to provide health plans with free contraception, even though such requirements violate their rights of religious freedom and conscience.
Relied on an Islamic fundamentalist militia group called â€œThe Martyrs of the February the 17th Revolution Brigadeâ€ to provide security at the American mission in Benghazi â€” and they not only failed to prevent the attack but perhaps even joined in on it.
During the debate over Obamacare in 2009, Obama bluntly stated that doctors like to perform amputations rather than practice preventive medicine for no other reason than that they make a greater profit from amputations. The American College of Surgeons demanded an apology, which never arrived.
Obamaâ€™s Department of Homeland Security specifically warned that Americans who are â€œdedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigrationâ€ are potential terrorists, as are libertarian-minded voters who â€œfavor of state or local authorityâ€ over centralized power. These â€œrightwing extremistsâ€ (who hold political beliefs shared by a majority of Americans) are deemed a greater threat to the nation than actual revolutionaries or jihadists.
For decades, every president has attended a â€œdaily intelligence briefingâ€ which updates him on critical world events each morning. Obama has skipped 60% of his daily intelligence briefings, including the ones leading up to the attack in Benghazi.
For a period of three+ years, Obama deliberately lied to the American people regarding the AHCA (Obamacare) promising that if Americans “Liked their health insurance plans they could keeps them.” and If they “liked their doctors they could keep them” knowing full well the entire time this would not be possible and millions of Americans would lose the health care plans they had and liked, and they would not be able to keep their doctors either. Â He also swore that Obamacare would reduce the cost of healthcare by $2,500 per year per person, knowing full well that under his Obamacare plan, deductibles, premiums and co-pays would in some cases quadruple to amounts Americans could not possibly afford.
In order to bolster his chances at reelection in 2012 after failing to pay adequate attention to increasing security concerns at the American Embassy in Benghazi, and ignoring more than 13 specific requests for more security, Obama attempted to fabricate a bogus story in which an unknown youtube video caused a “spontaneous uprising” which resulted in the Benghazi attack. He continued to lie and went on multiple nationally televised news and talk shows maintaining this lie even while the real facts of the situation were being unfolded. His administration further impeded investigations and stood in the way of fact finding attempts by the United States Congress, refused to turn over evidence, documents, and names of surviving witnesses, and even went so far as to threaten those witnesses against testifying or coming forward, and changed the names of some of them in an effort to hide them from those who might attempt to contact them in the midst of investigations. Further, there remains a great deal of questions over Obama’s where abouts the night of the Benghazi attack, as there is an 8-10 hour span of time in which no one seems to be able to recall where he was, since he was not in the white house situation room, nor was he in touch with those who were during the 8 hours the attack was ongoing.
the next morning however, he did board AF1 on time for his flight to Los Vegas where he was having a major campaign fund raising event that evening, which Obama of course attended and behaved as if nothing had occurred just 24 hours prior in which 4 Americans were murdered, one of whom being a U.S. Ambassador.
In congressional hearings about the misconduct and deliberate targeting of Conservative Right Tea Party and religious groups on the part of the I.R.S. it was discovered that on nearly every occasion Top level IRS officials had meetings at the white house, lead representatives of the Obama campaign staff were also present, clearly allowing campaign staff access to information they had no business or right to have.
In the midst of these investigations, it was found that the IRS had illegally divulged personal private information of taxpayers to other government offices for the sole purpose of further targeting these individuals and creating a chilling effect that directly impacted the results of the 2012 presidential election.
Just weeks after reputedly admonishing others for using rhetoric when describing Obama and his administration, as well as their illegal, inappropriate activities, and insisting that they “tone down the rhetoric,” Â In a speech giving in front of a national union group, Obama shouted out the words “If they bring a knife to the fight, we’ll bring a gun!”
Targeted Fox News Reporter James Rosen and his family, illegally wire tapping their phones and conducting illegal surveillance on them.
Orders millions of rounds of hollow point ammunition for government offices that have no use for such ammunition such as the Social Security Administration, and Department of agriculture.Â The amounts of ammunition ordered was in amounts sufficient to kill every man, woman, and child in America five times. To go along with this purchase of ammunition, Obama’s administration also ordered weapons to be handed out to employees for personal protection.
There have been a long list of people who were in some way associated with Obama in his early years, or who were in positions where they had possibly compromising information which would prove embarrassing or deadly to Obama, his presidency, or his administration who have died suddenly in bizarre, strange ways, via random violence, suicides that were completely unexpected, massive heart attacks at extremely young ages, garage fires, plane crash, cyanide poisoning etc. The list continues to grow. This becomes even more eyebrow raising in light of Obama’s perverse enjoyment and obsessive attention to his “Kill list” and the drone strikes.
In light of all that I’ve mentioned here, the many things I’ve opted to leave out, and the truly inappropriate behavior of someone who is supposed to be the leader of the free world, the deliberate lies and deceit, the lack of respect for American citizens, the dogged determination to get his own way bi passing Congress at every possible opportunity and the completely out of touch narcissistic personality traits exhibited by Obama, one cannot help but conclude our country is in serious danger, as are we as the American people.
Unfortunately the representatives put in place to protect us from this very sort of tyranny have proven themselves to be no less narcissistic than Obama himself is, and while during campaigns, they swear their unending devotion to the people who would vote them into office, once seated there, they all too often completely forget what they have been sent there to do.
It’s time we as Americans stand and take back our country. It is crucial that we begin this task right now! Our goal must be to stop at nothing when it comes to Impeaching Obama and seeing to it the truth is told about everything he and his minions have done.
Second, our focus needs become LASER LIKE on removing every single Democrat and Republican who has become glued to their seat, and/or been sitting it longer than 20 years. Being a member of Congress, or the Senate, a representative of the people was NEVER intended to be a lifetime gig.
Those chairs were never meant to have been molded to precisely fit the backside of just one individual, and never changed. Â Allowing this to have happened is the direct result of millions of small minded, uninformed Americans, being too lazy and ignorant to have stopped it immediately. Continuing to allow it has led to massive corruption, and the current accepted quid pro quo back scratching (and stabbing) accepted practices that has brought our country to the dark place we are currently in.
Those opposed to reasonable term limits are obviously oblivious to the fact that continuing to not put them in place, reasoning that Americans can vote these individuals out at any time they so choose, are ignorant to the way politics and the American political machine works today, or they are the individuals currently glued to those chairs and/or their subordinates.
Personally, I believe that Congressional representatives should be without exception, limited to 5 consecutive two year terms, and a maximum lifetime limit of 10 years serving as a Congressional Representative. In other words, one can’t do 10 years in Florida, then move to Georgia, run and have the clock start over again.
Further, that they are not entitled to a lifetime of compensation from the pockets of the American people once their time in Congress is over, nor should their spouses be entitled to those benefits for their lifetimes.
I recognize that as a spouse of a Congressional Representative, or U.S. Senator those individuals are compelled to devote huge amounts of time in the service of their country just as the elected official is, and sometimes even more so, Â therefore, I do not take issue with those spouses being financially compensated during these terms for serving these roles, however, once the term (s) are complete, and draw to a close, so too should their ability to draw compensation for their part in it.
Further, I believe that those making laws for American people to live under, should be forced to abide by them without exception as well. In other words, if a wall street trader cannot benefit financially from insider information, neither should any member of Congress or the Senate or their immediate family members.
In short, the time has come for these folks to be held responsible for the laws they enact, to better help them comprehend the far reaching ramifications of the things they do. If they too feel the pinch and pain of their laws, they will be far less likely to enact those which adversely affect millions of Americans because of the irresponsible behavior of a relative few. It’s time for our elected officials to take ownership of the laws they vote in favor of enacting. Perhaps then, there will never be another instance in which a speaker of the house stands before the media uttering the words, “in order to see what’s in the law, you’ll have to pass it.
None of these things are at all unreasonable. They are in fact common sense solutions to problems which have developed over time. Problems which have served only to encourage the very undesirable behaviors our elected officials have become so comfortable with and resulted in the rampant corruption and unethical activities currently condoned, often even encouraged within our federal government Â today, that lead those holding office to rationalize other unacceptable and unethical actions or practices which, for the rest of us, would be considered illegal.
Once that is accomplished, it’s up to us to make sure anyone running for the office of president in 2016 is a person of moral character who has been completely vetted from before birth, and is free of any ties to nefarious individuals. It is also up to us to accept that no human being is perfect. Perhaps they had some fun in college, or made an off color remark they wish they hadn’t made, GET OVER IT!
What we DO NOT NEED is for someone like Chris Christie to obtain anything more than a passing glance, or a thanks but no thanks. The VERY LAST thing this country needs is someone we cannot depend upon to stand their ground when the going gets tough, or who starts kissing the asses of the enemy and engaging in BROMANCES with them at the height of the battle.
Similarly, we do not need anyone who is not totally committed to repealing Obamacare in its entirety, or that thinks allowing 12 million illegal aliens (who have already shown themselves to be criminals without respect for our rule of law, since they’ve already broken it by being here illegally,) instant citizenship and full entitlements such as food stamps, welfare, housing assistance, social security, medicaid and medicare, as well as a get out of jail free card, good Â for a free pass up to three times on other illegal activities they engage in like identity theft, Â is anything except a REALLY REALLY BAD idea.
We need someone who believes completely in American exceptionalism, our military being as strong, well trained, prepared and compensated as possible, and the American people being put back to work.
Someone who understands that while we would like to be of assistance to other countries when we can, we’re no longer in the business of fighting other countries battles, or footing the bills for those battles. They are going to have to learn to fight for themselves, Â if they need weapons, (and we have no problem with them having weapons,) they’ll have to pay for them, along with anything else they receive from us.
We need someone who believes that first and foremost we must heal, and protect our own before we can even think about healing or protecting anyone else.Â
We’ve got a long journey ahead of us folks.
Many of those who will read this have yet to get out of their chairs and take the first step. To them I ask; What the hell are you waiting for?
For those of us who have been on the move for quite some time already, it’s up to us to gather our troops, our bullhorns, signs, t-shirts and buttons, as well as our battle plans, and get busy doing what we do best, leading the way!
For those who have done nothing, and will continue to do nothing, making excuses, and demanding action from everyone else while pointing fingers and snarling at those who are trying, I say, the time has come for you to shut up or put up. Get off the Porch and run with the pachyderms, or stay there and pee with the puppies. But if you choose to do nothing but make excuses, understand completely, and without exception, that if you’re not now prepared to be a part of the solution, you most assuredly are the problem.
I am Passionate Pachyderms, and I tell it like it is.
