Take action now:

Barack Obama

President of the U.S. Elected through a confluence of factors: the great unpopularity of George W Bush, the incredible weakness of John McCain, the mistakes of all those who opposed him, a highly-skilled campaign staff that was able to sell an inexperienced cipher with a questionable background through partially dishonest means, and, most of all, due to the complicity of the mainstream media.

The MSM was the major factor involved in demoting McCain's opponents, promoting McCain, demoting Hillary Clinton, and then relentlessly promoting Obama at the same time as lying and misleading about and smearing Sarah Palin.

Before the campaign, this site tried to draw attention to Obama's long list of faults, as did many other sites. However, this site was nearly alone in trying to push things such as his indoctrination plan for pre-teens.

And, almost no other site even just once suggested this highly effective plan under which regular citizens would ask him tough questions on video destined for Youtube.

Obama admin uses very curious phrase about UACs (illegal immigration) - 07/18/14

A very curious phrase illegal immigration supporters use is a variant of "safe, legal, and orderly" when referring to movements of people between countries. For instance, George W Bush, a Mexican consul, and the Canadian government have all used variants of that phrase. Now, ask yourself: would two unconnected people refer to the same process using a phrase like "safe, legal, and orderly"? If you...

Barack Obama's unthinking, sleazy comments on Trayvon Martin - 07/19/13

Barack Obama spoke earlier today about the Trayvon Martin issue and showed yet again that he's either incapable of thinking things through, or he's just a sleazy seeker of racial power. From Obama's remarks [1]: There are very few African American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me. There are very...

How amnesty would have helped Obama trounce Romney (Hispanic vote) - 04/23/13

... voters did last fall, President Barack Obama’s relatively narrow victory last fall would have been considerably wider, a POLITICO analysis showed. Key swing states that Obama fought tooth and nail to win - like Florida, Colorado and Nevada - would have been comfortably in his column. And the president would have come very close to winning Arizona. Republican Mitt Romney, by contrast, would have...

Did Romney lose because of immigration? Find out. (Hispanic vote, Obama wins) - 11/06/12

... Romney lose the 2012 election to Barack Obama because of immigration? In a word, no. While Obama might have picked up a good share of the "Hispanic vote", he was always going to get a large share of Hispanics voting for him. On the immigration topic, what hurt Romney was that he didn't use it correctly. Instead of Hispandering - a failed strategy that just helps the Democrats - Romney should...

Mitt Romney's shocking white solidarity ad - 09/18/12

... from Duluth, Minnesota - takes Barack Obama to task for opposing Judge Sonje Untermayer, who Romney has stated he would like to appoint to the US Supreme Court. In the ad, Weltgreifer is making an obvious appeal to not just solidarity among German-Americans, but whites as a whole. To underline that point, on the video Weltgreifer only speaks in German. The English name of the video is "Pay the...

Reddit Ask Me Anything of Obama was OK, if you want to enable the corrupt establishment - 08/30/12

... conducted an "Ask Me Anything" of Barack Obama in which he answered 10 user-submitted questions; you can read them at [2]. All of the questions were incredibly lightweight and didn't hold him accountable in any way. That isn't surprising, since user-submitted questions are usually very weak [3]. Politicians - many of whom are lawyers - are able to dance their way around those weak questions....

Obama campaign manager tweets "chimichanga" and GOP outraged: what they won't mention - 02/15/12

... worthless controversy involves Barack Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina tweeting a comment about chimichangas. No, really. But, it's not entirely worthless: I'll tell you below some of the things you won't hear from either side. In case you haven't been following along, see [1] for a recap. Some notes: 1. There's nothing offensive about Milbank's comment or Messina's tweet of it that I can...

AttackWatch misleads about Obama's immigration amnesty (Adam Serwer, Politifact) - 09/14/11

... rumors and supposed lies about Barack Obama. Rather than laughing, I'll briefly discuss Attack Watch itself trying to mislead people about Obama's mini-amnesty for up to 300,000 illegal aliens. Under "Immigration Reform Inaccuracies" AttackWatch claims "Republican media figures have accused President Obama of refusing to deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants" (attackwatch.com/...

Obama, Fake 'n' Folksy: Weekly Address verbage hardly matches his policy - 08/20/11

... restaurants with America's Betters, Barack Obama's speech writing team wrote his Weekly Address (link) which he read. He was probably gritting his teeth as he read this: Hello from the Country Corner Farm in Alpha, Illinois! For the past few days, I've been traveling to small towns and farm towns here in the heartland of this country. I sat down with small business owners in Gutenberg, Iowa; and...

Jack Dorsey of Twitter asks Obama very weak questions (AskObama, Will Wilkinson, Steven Norton, Kara McGuire, Dorrine Mendoza, Raman Chadha, Karl Smith, Kim Quillen, Drew Cline) - 07/06/11

... the "AskObama" interview with Barack Obama in which - instead of doing a public service and holding Obama accountable - Dorsey simply promoted his company and asked Obama a series of very weak questions. A reporter from the mainstream media - which has likewise failed to ask Obama any questions that are even slightly challenging - said "this was an almost entirely news-less affair" [1]. The very...

All past instances where Obama has been asked questions have been almost completely worthless shams that haven't held him accountable. This page presents a plan that - if I can get enough help - will finally hold him accountable and might force him to offer policies that are better for the U.S....

Obama zings Trump, millions of Americans at White House Correspondents Dinner - 05/01/11

Barack Obama spoke at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night and joked about Donald Trump and smeared millions of Americans who have valid questions about Obama's past. None of what Obama did was presidential, but it's what most of his supporters want and his detractors are generally unable to do anything about it. Note that even the New York Times had questions about Obama's background...

Obama gets angry (in ineffective interview featuring weak questions) - 04/19/11

Barack Obama recently spoke with Brad Watson of WFAA in an interview (link, video below) that was sold by Matt Drudge and others as some sort of watershed moment ("FIRST TIME: REPORTER TURNS AGGRESSIVE WITH OBAMA" was his headline). Certainly, almost all reporters have treated Obama extremely reverentially and from that perspective the interview is markedly different. However, the interview was...

Obama admits problems caused by mass immigration; panders to illegal aliens; takes foreign citizens' side; opposes non-criminal deportations - 03/29/11

Barack Obama spoke at Bell Multicultural High School in Washington DC yesterday at a townhall conducted in Spanish for the Univision network. The host was anchor Jorge Ramos, a U.S. resident who's a Mexican citizen, a Mexican partisan, and a strong supporter of illegal immigration. And, of course, Obama was mostly aligned with him. After admitting the major problems caused by massive immigration...

Obama plays race card on Tea Party and whites in general; "subterranean agenda"; Teaparty interferes with proper response - 03/03/11

According to the book "Family of Freedom: Presidents and African Americans in the White House" (link) by Kenneth Walsh of US News: But Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem.

... agreement is here. Excerpts from the Barack Obama Executive Order are at [1]. A leaked memo about propagandizing the announcement is at [2].

AskObama: did Steve Grove choose an unpopular immigration question because of Voto Latino? - 01/28/11

... Grove of Youtube interviewed Barack Obama with a series of questions that users had submitted through the "Ask Obama" event. The Youtube interview was a scam; see that link for the details and the backstory. To further drive home just how much of a scam it was, Grove appears to have undercut the implied rules of the competition by choosing an unpopular video as the only question about...

Another Youtube/Obama scam: ask State of the Union questions - 01/26/11

... and see this too] Youtube and Barack Obama are conducting yet another scam, soliciting questions for Obama based on the State of the Union that he'll answer on Thursday, January 27. Other users vote up or down submitted questions, and then Obama will answer the top vote-getters. The questions that get the most votes will invariably not be the best questions, the ones that Obama should be pressed...

Glenn Beck urges donations to illegal immigration-supporting U.S. Chamber of Commerce - 10/14/10

... leveled by both ThinkProgress and Barack Obama that the Chamber is soliciting foreign money (true) and then using that to influence the political process inside the U.S. (so far undetermined). Beck could have pointed out how he thinks ThinkProgress et al are wrong and kept it at that. Instead, he's encouraging his fans to donate to a group that could care less about them. And, in yet another...

Obama flames reconquista at Hispanic Caucus, gets history, Declaration of Independence wrong - 09/19/10

... here and almost nowhere else, Barack Obama flamed reconquista sentiments. Speaking at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus event recently he did it again.

Obama devastates GOP "arguments" live on TV (House Republican retreat) - 01/30/10

Barack Obama appeared at a nationally-televised House Republican retreat in Baltimore yesterday at which several leading Republicans asked him questions which he then handled with ease. He "p0wned" them so badly that Fox News cut away from the coverage twenty minutes before it ended. What the House members asked were weak, open-ended question or simply requests. They weren't adversarial questions...

SOTU 2010: Barack Obama State of the Union open thread - 01/27/10

Some light coverage of Barack Obama's 2010 State of the Union will commence shortly. However, feel free to leave comments about the speech in comments.

For the second, note that the number of jobs...

FightTheSmears is offline for an unknown reason - 07/09/09

... picture of what is supposedly Barack Obama's COLB as well as the home of at least a couple of lies - is currently offline. The last homepage in Google's cache was from July 7, so it's not clear whether this is just a temporary issue or something permanent. A look through the same cache shows that they were hacked by spammers and those pages were there in May to the end of June, so that might...

Obama, ADL, SPLC, Phil Gordon, Catherine Herridge, Shep Smith, Joan Walsh, Chris Matthews, others try to exploit shooting at Holocaust Museum - 06/11/09

... to score political points: * Barack Obama says: "This outrageous act reminds us that we must remain vigilant against anti-Semitism and prejudice in all its forms". That sounds good, until one remembers things like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, "bitter cling", his campaign's constant attempts to race-bait, his smears of Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh, and how he'd deal with "hate" (see #14). * Josh Gerstein...

Obama Notre Dame commencement speech: live video - 05/17/09

Discuss the commencement speech by Barack Obama at Notre Dame University. UPDATE: If that doesn't work, go here. Also, ND president Rev. John Jenkins seems to be the root of the problem.

Pro-freedom cartoon predicted Obama and Democratic Party... fifty years ago - 05/08/09

... recently and as a response to Barack Obama and the current state of the Democratic Party. Now, certainly, they don't want state control over all factories and farms, but it's not like that's a foreign concept to the administration and some of their policy advisors. While some of the video needs some serious caveats, the Democratic Party seems to have used "ISM" as a blueprint: When anybody...

Live coverage Obama press conference April 29, 2009 - 04/29/09

[UPDATE BELOW] Asked very weak question by Jennifer Loven of the Associated Press whether he will close the border with Mexico in regards to the swine flu.

Obama baits tea party protesters; will they be able to figure out what he's doing? (no) - 04/29/09

Earlier today, Barack Obama spoke in St Louis and said among other things: You see folks waving tea bags around -- let me just remind them I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care cuts over the long term, how we are gong to stabilize social security.

John Nichols /The Nation pushes bogus flu pandemic preparedness issue; distraction from Obama admin, Dem failures - 04/27/09

John Nichols of The Nation offers "GOP Know-Nothings Fought Pandemic Preparedness" (link). Sens. Arlen Spector and Susan Collins fought the addition of around $900 million for flu pandemic preparedness to the stimulus plan.

Is the TOTUS preparing for a coup d'etat? - 04/04/09

Is the TOTUS trying to make Barack Obama look bad? Or, is it even worse than that and the TOTUS is trying to undercut the Obama administration as part of a dastardly plan for a coup d'etat that would see Obamabots replaced by bots loyal to the TOTUS? I'll let you decide. 1/9/12 UPDATE: The account with the video that was here (Youtube ID j3zft6_mZjs) was terminated. I replaced it with MSNBC...
