will leave a legacy, but it’s not the one he tries to convince you of, unless you are willing to live in his false paradigm.
If you had a baby when he was elected, that child is now in 3rd grade. That’s a long history of lies and broken promises in
Every President and politician tells a few
and engages in a degree of hypocrisy, but Barack Obama has done these things on a far greater scale than anyone else.
No need to mention:
Barack Obama’s birth certificate
Facts about Barack Obama
His campaign promises sounded like sweet music to all Americans – no lobbyists in his administration, he said he would five days before signing all non-emergency bills, so people would have time to read them.
He promised to put health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted.
He promised prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal and he promised high levels of transparency in his administration.
The lies and broken promises will be his true legacy. He has done more damage and caused more problems than any other president in the history of this country.
He has blatantly ignored and thumbed his nose at the constitution of the United States.
He carried out military interventionism in Libya without Congressional approval!
In June 2011, one of his own democrats, U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said that “Obama had violated the Constitution when he launched military operations in Libya without Congressional approval.”
In April 2014, Ralph Nader said that Obama should be impeached for his actions in Libya.
He has had an administration full of lobbyists, after promising he wouldn’t have any!
On November 15, 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada, Obama said that “lobbyists will not work in my White House.”
However, by February 2010, he had more than 40 lobbyists working in his administration.
Had close ties to Wall St., but pretended to support Occupy Wall St.
The truth is that as of 2011, he had raised more money from Wall St. than any other candidate during the previous 20 years.
He broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay. In his campaign he made the following promise:
“As president, Barack Obama will close the detention facility at Guantanamo.”
Obama supported the $700 billion TARP corporate-welfare bailout just like George W. Bush did.
While Senator, Obama voted for the $700 billion TARP bank bailout bill. It punished hard working taxpayers who played by the rules and obeyed the law. The bailout rewarded the bad people and punished the good people.
In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”
Just two years later, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal.
DEA agents also raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City, California, another state where medical marijuana is legal.
In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California.
DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California.
Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal.
In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal.
In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.
In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.”
Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, and Attorney General Eric Holder repeated the same after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years.
Nominated a six-time tax cheater to head the government agency that enforces the tax laws!
Here are a few issues Geithner had:
1) Illegally failed to pay more than $34,000 in social security and medicare taxes
2) Illegally declared the cost of his children’s summer camp as a form of day care.
3) Illegally failed to pay the early withdrawal penalty when he took money out of his retirement plan
4) Illegally declared non-eligible items as a charitable deduction
5) Illegally declared something which was ineligible as a small business deduction
6) Illegally declared utility expenses which had actually been for his personal use
Obama gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it.
Gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it.
Obama signed a “stimulus” bill that spent money on bonuses for AIG executives. Prior to signing this bill, Obama had said, “when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.” Obama pretended to be shocked and outraged at the bonuses. He said that he would “pursue every single legal avenue to block these bonuses.”
He also supported Bush’s unconstitutional Patriot Act. In May 2011, Obama signed a renewal of the Patriot Act.
Increased the national debt more in one term than Bush did in two terms. The national debt increased more under his first three years and two months than it did during all eight years of George W. Bush’s presidency.
Agrees with Bush’s support of unconstitutional, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without filing any charges
Obama signed a bill that gave the U.S. government the power to “indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without any charges being filed or any trial taking place.” THIS IS A HUGE VIOLATION OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.
Ralph Nader said, “Obama has extended the Bush doctrine by declaring his unilateral right, as secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner, to destroy anybody, anywhere in the world, including American citizens, suspected to be engaged in alleged terrorist activities, all this vaguely and loosely defined as anti-U.S. security.”
And of course, we can never forget the famous, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.”
I don’t have time to include the entire 1,342 list of well sourced examples of Obama’s “lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy and waste in this article, but Daniel Alman did.

Obama’s legacy of illegality may be the worst case of consistent deception to a people in American history! If not, you tell me who then!
