A Picture Worth a Thousand Words - Obama Corruption and Incompetency

If There Ever Was A Picture Worth A Thousand Words

This “president” is a disaster in so many ways .

As Jay Leno says: “How can Obama hold anybody accountable when he doesn’t have any accountants in his administration?”

Obama may be the worst foreign policy president in U.S. history, but he is also the most corrupt:
“How many more scandals have to crop up before the words “Obama” and “corruption” become dictionary synonyms?
In January, the issue of corruption, like the television show “Jeopardy,” came in the form of a question.
Four months later, Obama corruption is a certainty and a redundancy.”

Move Over Jimmy – Barack Hussein Obama Now “Worst Foreign Policy President Ever”
by Ulsterman on August 31, 2013

Barack Obama is hated by those who have seen the United States help to tear apart their own nations in favor of radical Islamic regimes.

Through one bungle after another, the Obama Administration has maneuvered itself into a box. If Obama launches an attack on Syria, he will bring America under widespread condemnation and risk a broader war. If he launches the limited cruise missile attack that he has suggested, he will look impotent at the same time he risks war. And if he does nothing at all, he will look impotent for backing down on his threat over “red line” of chemical weapon use and trash what little credibility he has left in the Middle East.
Obama has managed a feat in the Middle east that was all but unimaginable five years ago: He’s even less popular in the region than President George W. Bush was at the end of his presidency.
The Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project finds that support for the United States is lower now in Egypt, Jordan and Pakistan than it was in 2008. Approval for Obama’s policies was only 15 percent in Muslim countries last spring; what that rate would be now in Egypt and Syria is anyone’s guess, but a safe guess would be “lower.”
Our foreign policy in the Middle East is incoherent. There is no strategic vision on display, only one ad hoc reaction after another. Secretary of State John Kerry wanders aimlessly through it all like a patrician Forrest Gump.
Five years ago the Norwegian parliament awarded Obama the Nobel Peace Prize in the hope that the change he represented would bring peace. It never occurred to them that change could be for the worse. Rarely has peace seemed so unattainable in the Middle East, nor the web of alliances and hatreds so tangled.
It takes a special kind of genius to make so many wrong steps to make an impossibly bad situation even worse.
President Obama is a very special kind of genius. 

President Obama drowning in corruption scandals

Obama is at Two Dozen Scandals and Counting
“The sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.”

President Obama claims that Republicans are busy probing “phony scandals.” But the sheer number of scandals suggests that misbehavior, abuse of power, and possibly corruption are not something being dreamed up by the GOP, but a defining characteristic of the Obama administration.
Here is a full list of the administration’s most egregious scandals. The ones we know about, at least. I’ve added four since the last time we ran the list – an increase of 20 percent!
1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.
2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:
  • The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
  • The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
  • The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack
3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.
4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.
5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.
6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.
8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.
9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.
10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.
11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.
12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.
13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.
14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.
15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.
16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.
17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.
18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.
19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”
21. The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration and its allies had both the motive and the means to do it.
22. An American Political Prisoner: The sudden decision to arrest Nakoula Basseley Nakoula on unrelated charges after protests in the Arab world over his anti-Muslim video is an extraordinarily suspicious coincidence. “We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute the person that made that video,” Hillary Clinton allegedly told the father of one of the ex-SEALs killed in Benghazi.
23. Get rid of inconvenient IGs: Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired in 2009 as he fought wasteful spending and investigated a friend of Obama’s, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. The White House says Walpin was incompetent.
24. Influence peddling: An investigation is underway of Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who has been nominated by Obama for the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security. Mayorkas may have used his position to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodman.

How Many More Obama Scandals Are There?
“If Obama’s first term raised ethical concerns, the last four months suggest an administration deep in moral bankruptcy…
At this point the only question is whether he takes the entire nation down with him.”
Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - The Tygrrrr Express by Eric Golub

President Obama is drowning in corruption scandals. Whether you believe he is an innocent victim, incompetent bungler or  nefarious schemer, one thing is certain. These scandals will not disappear just because he and his supporters want them to.
We asked the question in January - is President Obama corrupt?
At that time, scandals abounded.
Solyndra, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the NLRB suing Boeing, and Lisa Jackson’s EPA emails are all serious scandals involving government corruption at the highest levels. At the minimum they show Obama to be ignorant or indifferent to what’s going on in his own administration.”
Those words appeared here only four months ago, and in retrospect they’re astonishing. The astonishment comes not from those listed powder kegs, but from the ones missing from the list. If Obama’s first term raised ethical concerns, the last four months suggest an administration deep in moral bankruptcy.
Only now are Americans learning that Obama’s IRS deliberately targeted and harassed conservative, tea party, pro-Israel, and other organizations that Obama dislikes, as well as individuals who supported them.
The facts are not in dispute. The IRS admitted guilt. The only question is from how high up the political food chain the order came to use the IRS to intimidate political opponents. IRS employee Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid answering questions on the subject, but because she indulged her desire to grab some air time with a self-serving statement before a House committee, she may be called back for further questioning.
Only now are Americans learning that HHS Secretary and Obamacare Czarina Kathleen Sebelius engaged in illegal Obamacare fundraising.
Only now are Americans learning that Obama’s Justice Department seized telephone records of AP reporters. The facts are again not in dispute. Obama admitted doing it, citing national security concerns. The Department of Justice was still required to notify the AP of their intentions, but failed to do so.
Only now are Americans learning that Attorney General Eric Holder personally signed the order authorizing the Obama DoJ to track the movements of Fox News reporter James Rosen, after asking three different judges to approve the order. Rosen’s parents were even tracked. Obama’s hostility toward Fox News is well established. Again, the facts are not in dispute. The only question is whether Holder went rogue or acted on Obama’s orders.
Only now are Americans learning the motivation behind the seizure of property from the Gibson Guitar company. Gibson was accused by this same DoJ of using illegal wood. A guitar company may seems apolitical, but everything is political with the Obama administration. Gibson’s owner is a Republican who donated to conservative candidates. A rival company using the same wood is owned by an individual who donates to Obama and other Democrats. His company was left alone.
Only now are Americans learning that HHS Secretary and Obamacare Czarina Kathleen Sebelius engaged in illegal Obamacare fundraising.
This is all in the last four months.
As for Benghazi, it is far worse than originally thought. Only now are Americans learning that the original Obama narrative was a deliberate lie. The anti-Muslim video did not inspire the Libya attacks on the American consulate that led to the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three others. Radical Islam was the cause.
The Obama administration stayed afloat just long enough to win reelection. Most mainstream outlets refused to cover his scandals. They then cited their own refusal to cover them as evidence that Americans did not care and the scandals did not matter. Hillary Clinton’s “What difference does it make?” became the symbol for every critic of an administration clearly spiraling out of control.
Forget momentarily the scandals known in January of 2013. Put aside briefly newer scandals developed in early 2013. Now ask a simple question.
How much more is there?
Obama defenders claim that Republicans deliberately focus on scandals to purposely weaken Obama. Even if this false claim had a kernel of truth, why did Obama give Republicans the ammunition to begin with?
Why would anyone in the age of Facebook, Twitter, and cellphone cameras think that bad behavior by anybody, much less famous people, would stay hidden?
Put simply, why can’t President Obama and his administration just stay out of trouble? Is it that hard to obey the law? Is it that difficult for Obama to accept that freedom of speech and freedom from government harassment are the rights of all Americans, even Americans who disagree with him?
Some people blame the media. The media emboldened Obama through their fawning worship. This allowed Obama to believe that he really is, as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews intoned, “the perfect man.”
Obama was treated less like a president and more like a messiah. As Lord Acton reminded us all, “absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
The reasons why Obama and his administration behave this way is irrelevant. This is the one case, unlike their scandals, where the reasons make no difference. At this point, too many people in the Obama administration have allowed themselves to be corrupted by pride and power to believe that they can do as they please, when they please, to whom they please. Whether this is the “Chicago Way” or the Obama way does not matter. The bad behavior must cease.
Republicans lost the 2012 election, but Democrats have seen their entire liberal agenda become paralyzed. Everything they believe in is failing because advancing a policy agenda requires the trust of the American people. A majority of Americans look at the Obama administration with distrustful eyes. Even people who like Obama personally no longer associate him with sincerity and integrity.
The original scandals were bad enough. The scandals accumulated in the last twenty weeks are far worse. This is just what we know.
As with confronting a cheating spouse, there exists reasonable suspicions that what we know is not “all of it,” not by a long shot.
How many more scandals have to crop up before the words “Obama” and “corruption” become dictionary synonyms?
In January, the issue of corruption, like the television show “Jeopardy,” came in the form of a question.
Four months later, Obama corruption is a certainty and a redundancy.
The life preservers in the media have been punctured. President Obama is drowning under the weight of his scandals. At this point the only question is whether he takes the entire nation down with him.

Here's what you've got to watch out for. This administration of Odumba and Czarina Kathleen Sebelius are trying as many false flag operations as they can to take this country down and kill off the people. The CDC is working on a vaccine for MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) by some time in October. I believe they are going to try and "force" this vaccine on everyone by some "mandate". The reason this is so serious is that statistics have shown that 60% of the people who get it die. The scientists are busy in the labs creating these evil plagues to unleash on the people. My opinion is that they probably tested it out in the Middle East to make sure it works. (I could be wrong, though)

BEGGED INDEED! You ask, how many SCANDALS does it take for Congress to ACT?

Seriously, I had it summed up long ago, when I played a CD, of the DECEPTION of Mr. O

My little 4 yr. old walked into the room, having NO CLUE to what I was doing, and the

minute it started, Mr. O pic displayed, and my little 4 yr. old says, "GRANDMA, HE IS EVIL",

and BAD"!! Hummmm, the insight the little ones have today! At that time his pic displayed,

a 'BLACK SMOKE.' appeared across my screen of sorts. No question he had the insight, many

in CONGRESS didn't have and never will. They seem to enjoy their MILLIONS, being quite!

HIJACKED, they are! I have made this statement in many places. They are colluding with him.

And we, are made to think they are doing their JOBS! The smart, really smart out here, know better!
