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.

Blatant Obama propaganda promotes a six year old's refugees stance - 09/23/16

Barack Obama has promoted or been promoted by blatant propaganda in the past, oftentimes involving children: kids singing for him, him sending letters to kids, lesson plans, etc. etc.

Anti-American: Barack Obama says only Native Americans can decide U.S. immigration policy - 11/28/14

Speaking in Chicago yesterday, Barack Obama said that U.S. citizens have no right to control who comes into the U.S. and that the only people who can rightfully control that are Native Americans. In so doing, Obama denied the sovereignty of the United States and denied the very laws and structures that made him president in the first place. HIs statement also harkens back to the days when the "one drop rule" was used to deprive blacks of rights.

Obama let Ebola into the U.S. How much will that cost us? - 10/16/14

Barack Obama let Ebola into the U.S. He could have instituted travel restrictions without much effort, but instead he allowed commercial flights originating in Liberia to continue. As a result, Thomas Eric Duncan traveled to the U.S. and infected at least two others. All of that was preventable with commonsense travel restrictions that wouldn't interfere with the response to Ebola.

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.

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]:

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

Here's how (link): If [11 million illegal aliens] had been on the voting rolls in 2012 and voted along the same lines as other Hispanic voters did last fall, President Barack Obama’s relatively narrow victory last fall would have been considerably wider, a POLITICO analysis showed.

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

Did Mitt 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.

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

The shocking video below is a new ad from Mitt Romney that - quite understandably as you'll see - is only running in parts of the upper Midwest and in the so-called "Polka Belt".

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

Remember the phrase "Question Authority"? What the site Reddit [1] did yesterday is the opposite of that.

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

A new and almost entirely 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:

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

The latest "Internet laughing stock" (link) is the new Democratic Party site attackwatch.com at which concerned citizens can report rumors and supposed lies about Barack Obama.

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

Shortly before jetting off to Martha's Vineyard to dine in gourmet 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:

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.

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 basically worthless: it didn't hold Obama accountable and it didn't force him to answer the tough questions he's needed to be asked for years. I'm not surprised he'd get angry, but a politician getting...

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.

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. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent "Tea Party" movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was...

U.S. and Canada create a "Shared Vision for Perimeter Security". What's next? - 02/10/11

For years, the establishment has tried to tell us that concerns about a North American Union were just crazy talk. Yet, on Friday, the U.S. and Canada established a "Shared Vision for Perimeter Security", a common security perimeter designed among other things to "accelerate the legitimate flow of people, goods, and services between our two countries". In the case of Canada we (at least currently) don't need to worry too much about millions of Canadians wanting to move to the U.S., but the same can't be said of similar efforts that might be planned with Mexico: around 39 million Mexicans...

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

Yesterday, Steve 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 immigration. However, that video just happens to have been uploaded by an organization that's partnered with Youtube. According to the implied rules of the competition, Youtube visitors would...

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

[UPDATE: Make sure 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 on. In fact, they're likely to be some of the weakest questions of all. Obama and all other politicians should be "cross-examined" over their policies, and this latest scam will not...

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

Earlier today, Glenn Beck urged his fans to donate to the US Chamber of Commerce, a group that strongly supports illegal and massive immigration. In 2006, GOP Rep. James Sensenbrenner suggested that the Chamber register as a foreign agent due to what they support.

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

Just over two years ago and as discussed here and almost nowhere else, Barack Obama flamed reconquista sentiments. Speaking at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus event recently he did it again. He also got history wrong and left "by their Creator" out of the Declaration of Independence. On the video at peekURL.com/vrbi8hy Obama says: ...long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. From British to French, to Dutch and Spanish - to Mexican - to countless Indian tribes, we all shared the same land. We didn't always get along, but over the centuries what...

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 designed to reveal flaws in his policies or statements. Because of that, they allowed him to say things like this: And the notion that I would somehow resist doing something that cost half as much...

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. A few largely worthless excerpts are here; expect the rest to be along those lines. He'll apparently be concentrating on healthcare and jobs. For the first, see our past coverage in Obama healthcare. For the second, note that the number of jobs supposedly "saved or created" under the stimulus plan is dwarfed by the number of work permits issued to foreign citizens in the same time period. And, not only has the Obama administration added...

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

FightTheSmears.com - the debunking site that's home to a 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 have something to do with it.

Tom Brokaw, Wesley Clark, Tom Daschle, Obama sister, Sidwell Friends board member, others on White House Fellowships Commission - 06/17/09

The 28 members of the "President’s Commission on White House Fellowships" have been named [1] and include:

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

Here are just some of those trying to use yesterday's shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC 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 of the Politico in "Attacks validate DHS report, some say" (link). He quotes the Southern...

Obama administration briefs Bilderberg group on foreign and economic policy - 05/26/09

No, really. Bilderberg - a group that just a few short years ago was presented by the MSM as a tinfoil hat topic - has gone mainstream. Kenneth Vogel of the Politico - seen here "debunking" some "myths" in order to assist the Barack Obama campaign - offers "Obama officials gave Bilderberg briefings" (politico.com/news/stories/0509/22957.html): A handful of high-ranking Obama administration officials this month delivered private briefings at the annual invitation-only conference held by an elite international organization known as the Bilderberg group. The closed meeting of some of the most...

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. In his introduction he said, among many other things, that Obama wanted to make immigration more humane; the opposite is true. At the start of Obama's speech, some are booing and one person was just re-seated by security. Another interrupted the speech with a louder shout; the audience then launched into their own unintelligible chant. UPDATE 2: Now, Obama is calling on all of us to join hands. Aww. He also...

Obama admin deports two illegal aliens, but only because they tried to tour the White House - 05/14/09

According to the Associated Press (link): Two people facing deportation from the United States have been taken into custody at the White House gate. They had arrived for a tour of the executive mansion... The pair was part of an adult education program, and a routine background check showed they had an outstanding immigration order against them.

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

The attached video is a cartoon from about fifty years ago made by Harding College (now University), "a Christian liberal arts University in Searcy, Arkansas". It's a "pro-freedom" answer to Communism, but it's also surprisingly ecumenical and, while the style would be different, could have been made much more 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...

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. Lets not play games. There's a very strong possibility that Obama wants to keep the tea party magic flowing, because those "parties" serve his interests. The partiers have no stated principles, they wave loopy signs, and there are so few of them (just 0.1 to 0.2% of Americans turned out) that they'll...

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. Now, Nichols is disreputably trying to tie that into the current possible flu crisis, and he's getting some help from his friends (link). Yet, the issue is bogus for various reasons: neither Spector nor Collins oppose spending on preparedness, they just didn't want it in a bill that was supposedly about stimulating the economy rather than just about everything the Dems and...

Obama's first 100 days: immigration, stimulus plan, Cabinet nominees, and more - 04/26/09

The past wondrous 100 days of the Barack Obama administration kicked off on a high note, as the benediction at his inauguration implied that all white people are racists and all non-whites are oppressed. That was just offensive; most of what's followed has serious to very serious long-term consequences.

Obama names Pope-basher to White House Faith advisory council (Harry Knox) - 04/07/09

Barack Obama has named Harry Knox of the Human Rights Campaign to the White House's Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. From this: [L]ast month, [Knox] described Pope Benedict XVI and certain Catholic bishops as “discredited leaders” because of their opposition to same-sex marriage... Knox also criticized the Catholic Knights of Columbus as being “foot soldiers of a discredited army of oppression” because of the Knights’ support of Proposition 8. The latter was a ballot initiative that amended California’s state constitution to define marriage as being between a man...

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.

Some questioners at Obama town hall were plants (SEIU, donors, etc.) - 03/27/09

At yesterday's Barack Obama town hall meeting, some of those who asked questions live at the event - as distinguished from those who submitted questions online - were plants with connections to the White House or other Beltway establishments. Garance Franke Ruta of the Washington Post says: the five fully identified questioners called on randomly by the president in the East Room were anything but a diverse lot. They included: a member of the pro-Obama Service Employees International Union, a member of the Democratic National Committee who campaigned for Obama among Hispanics during the...

Sat. 3/21/09: Obama organizing petition signing drives for his stimulus plan (door-to-door, at malls, etc.) - 03/20/09

In an apparent attempt to define creepy down, Obama for America - the successor to Barack Obama's campaign organization - is organizing a "Pledge Project Canvass", where the president's supporters will go door-to-door asking people to sign a pledge in support of the stimulus plan. They'll also be stationed at malls, stores and other places with large numbers of people. The training video is attached, and the pledge itself is deceptively simple: * I support President Obama's bold approach for renewing America's economy * I will ask friends, family, and neighbors to pledge their support for...
